    Getty Tom Brady had a little bit of fun at the expense of the Colts. Tom Brady just can’t stop making life miserable for the Indianapolis Colts. Although Brady is now a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he’s still creating new memories — at the expense of the Colts. The Buccaneers’ 10-point comeback victory over Indianapolis in Week 12 is the latest example of Brady getting the better end of the Colts. Following the Buccaneers’ 38-31 win over the Colts, the 44-year-old quarterback couldn’t help but have some fun at the expense of his old rival team. Brady took a little bit of a playful jab against the Colts on the latest episode of the “Let’s Go!” podcast with Jim Gray on Monday, November 29. “Always fun talking to you [Jim Gray] on a Monday after winning,” Brady said. “Especially fun after we beat the Colts, which we’ve done a pretty good job of that lately.

    SAN JOSE – Evander Kane is eager to turn the page on a year that included multiple investigations into his behavior by the NHL, frayed relationships with Sharks teammates, strife in his personal life, and a 21-game suspension for a violation of the league’s COVID protocol. Back on the ice in a team setting for the first time in close to six months, Kane on Tuesday took part in his initial practice with the Barracuda at Solar4America Ice. The forward was placed on waivers by the Sharks on Sunday and cleared the next day, allowing the organization to assign him to its AHL affiliate. It was Kane’s first step in what he hopes will be a return to the NHL after he was suspended by the league for a quarter of the season on Oct. 18 for submitting a fake vaccine card. The suspension ended after the Sharks’ game with the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday. Kane said he’ll be able to separate his personal problems from his profession. “I came in today, the same person, the...
    The 59-year-old British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is a "dangerous predator" who recruited and "served up" minor girls for deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein to abuse for a decade, prosecutors argued Monday during the first day of the long-awaited federal sex trafficking trial in Manhattan, New York. In her opening statement, prosecutor Lara Pomerantz emphasized how Maxwell and Epstein allegedly approached one of their victims, a 14-year-old girl named Jane, at her summer camp in 1994 while she was sitting at a picnic table with friends. Epstein introduced himself as a donor who gave money to students, and he and Maxwell invited the girl to his villa in Palm Beach, Florida, for tea.  The meeting began "a nightmare that would last for years," as the girl was pulled into a relationship with Maxwell and Epstein, who were "each more than double her age," Pomerantz said. Now an adult, that once-14-year-old victim is expected to take the stand herself during the course of the trial.  GHISLAINE MAXWELL'S ALLEGED VICTIM ARRIVES AT COURT Describing Maxwell and Epstein as "partners in crime" and the "best...

    President Joe Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm is the subject of an ethics complaint for promoting, in her role as a member of the executive branch, an electric bus company she sat on the board of and held millions of dollars of stock in. Granholm — who oversees moving the country toward an electric vehicle transportation system and enjoys newfound powers after the passage of Biden’s infrastructure package — is facing scrutiny for promoting Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company she sat on the board of and held 240,520 shares of stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination. Granholm has been criticized for promoting Proterra in her official capacity as energy secretary and for hyping grant access to companies with connections to Proterra. These critics argue that Granholm’s promotion of the company, which as of Monday had a market cap of $2.6 billion, has increased Proterra’s visibility and thereby potentially increased the value of Granholm’s stock in the company before she was required by ethics rules to sell her shares on May 24....

    Incidentally, such legislation already passed the Wisconsin legislature, but in Feb. 2020, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers vetoed those bills. They included the following: Assembly Bill 805: The bill required the Department of Corrections to revoke parole from anyone charged with a crime while on parole, extended supervision, or probation. Assembly Bill 806: At a time of skyrocketing juvenile crime, this bill would have authorized prison time for any juvenile convicted of a Class G felony, which comes with up to 10 years in prison if committed by an adult. Assembly Bill 808: This bill would have barred a prosecutor from dismissing a charge of felony firearm possession if the offender had a previous violent crime conviction. Assembly Bill 809: This bill would simply have barred the early release of anyone convicted of violent crimes like homicide or aggravated battery. Yet Gov. Tony Evers vetoed all of these commonsense bills that exclusively target violent criminals. The dangerous "criminal justice reform" movement began with its rallying cry of freeing "low-level, first-time, nonviolent" offenders filling up our prisons....

    A convicted bank robber from Camden who just couldn’t stop is headed back to federal prison for more than 16 years. Anthony L. Livingston, 50, robbed a PNC Bank in Gloucester Township on July 14, 2018 (photos above), a day after he’d been released after serving more than 18 years in federal prison for robbing eight South Jersey banks in 2000 and 2001, authorities said. Ten days after the Gloucester holdup, Livingston tried to recruit a homeless man to rob another PNC branch, this one in Stratford, they said. Livingston “instructed the man on how to rob the bank, gave him a demand note to show to the teller, and drove the man to the bank,” Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael Honig said. Instead, the man told a teller that “he had been sent there to rob the bank and that he did not want to do it,” Honig said. He also said the bank “should call the police because the person who had sent him was waiting for him outside,” she added. Livingston slipped away and only four hours recruited...
    A convicted Jersey City drug dealer who'd previously served state prison time on a gun conviction must spend the next seven years in federal prison for having the gun and ammo he used to shoot and wound a rival, authorities said. Hassan Mosby, 40, had no trouble admitting earlier this year that he was the gunman who shot a man in an October 2019 during a dispute with a group on a city sidewalk, they said. Police found him in a nearby home a short time later, Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig said. Mosby, whose criminal history covers nearly his entire adult life, took a deal from the government, pleading guilty in May to illegally possessing firearms and ammo as a convicted felon, after the case went federal. U.S. District Judge Anne E. Thompson approved the deal, sentencing Mosby last week to 84 months. He must serve just about all of the term because there's no parole in the federal prison system. Thompson also sentenced him to three years of supervised release. Police responding to a shooting in the...
    Vermont’s sole member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Democrat Peter Welch, announced Monday that he will run for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy. Welch’s decision comes a week after the 81-year-old Leahy’s announcement that he will not seek reelection to the seat he first won in 1974.

What goes through your mind? ” On Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder’s behavior during the murder trial, Waters said, “Well, you know, I was absolutely disappointed in the judge.

    LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Larry Hopkins, who served as a state lawmaker before representing central Kentucky in Congress for more than a decade, has died. He was 88. Milward Funeral Home in Lexington confirmed the death, but did not release further information. Hopkins was elected to Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District in 1978 and served until 1993.

He was a premier legislator in both Frankfort and Washington and will be missed by all of his former colleagues,” he said. U.S. Rep. Andy...

Arturo Castro-Zavaleta, 41, was sentenced last week to two 10-year terms, to be served concurrently, by U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller. The drug distribution charges carried a mandatory minimum of 10 years. As part of his plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s office, Castro-Zavaleta admitted to possessing 10 pounds of heroin and four ounces of methamphetamine, and $3,000 in drug proceeds. When the Drug Enforcement Administration served a search warrant at Castro-Zavaleta’s Turlock home in 2019, they found 300 small opium plants as well as 200 marijuana plants, according to the criminal complaint.

In court records, prosecutors have said the same investigation resulted in three other criminal cases, including charges against a Vallejo middleman heroin dealer, as well as a massive racketeering case against the Aryan Brotherhood...
