    A black couple from California are suing a real estate firm after their home went up in value by 50 per cent when they had a white friend pose as its owner.  Paul, 45, and Tenisha Tate Austin, 42, who are black and from Marin City near San Francisco had their home valued at $989,000 in January, having purchased it in 2016 for $550,000.  Following a second appraisal from a different lender the following month, they were shocked to find the home's value increased by a further $500,000. The couple credit 'whitewashing' the home of all signs of its owners' identity, and asking a Caucasian friend to pose as Tenisha for the second viewing as the reason for the jump in value. They have now filed a fair housing lawsuit against appraiser Janette Miller, her firm Miller and Perotti Real Estate Appraisers, Inc. and national appraisal company AMC Links, LLC in the $487,500 discrepancy over the two valuations they received.  AMC were tasked with handling the couple's valuation, and were also behind the second valuation which saw a dramatic increase in price,...
    A former Ph.D student is suing Princeton University for emotional distress after a 2011 hearing on her alleged rape devolved into 'victim blaming' and found no evidence to back up her claim, causing her to drop out. The student says she was raped by a classmate in December 2010. She was able to sue under a 2019 law signed by Gov. Phil Murphy that did away with the statute of limitations on rape claims for a period of two years ending on Tuesday. She says the Nobel Prize-winning professor who represented her accuser asked about her sexual history and pressed her on why she baked brownies for her alleged rapist if she didn't want him to think she was interested. 'I don’t mean to get too personal... (tell us) how many boyfriends you’ve had?' the professor allegedly asked her. The victim, the accused student and the professor are not named in the lawsuit, according to NJ.com.  Princeton says the issue was handled 'in accordance with the university disciplinary procedures' of the time, which have since changed after a 2014 agreement...
    Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin gave a noticeably awkward silence when asked about his regrets regarding the chaotic withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.  'Do you have any regrets about the Afghan withdrawal?' Fox's Bret Baier asked Austin during a keynote discussion at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California, on Saturday.  After an uncomfortable silence that lasted for nearly 10 seconds, Austin finally replied. 'Bret, I regret the fact that we lost 13 of our finest at Abbey Gate. I regret that we lost 10 civilians in an errant strike.' 'Having said that, Bret, I want to make sure that we don't lose sight of the fact that our American forces, in 17 days, evacuated 124,000 people from Afghanistan,' Austin added.  SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO  Eleven Marines, a Special Forces member and a Navy Corpsman were all killed in the ISIS-K suicide attack on August 26 as US forces frantically tried to get people on evacuation flights before the August 31 deadline.  Also, a drone airstrike that the US government had said killed an...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki gave a snarky reply Friday morning when Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski pointed out that Americans care more about economic issues than social ones. Brzezinski was referring to data collected from a Virginia-based focus group of voters who had chosen President Joe Biden for president in 2020 and then voted for Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, the race's winner.  'Democrats are losing really badly on economic issues, and that a lot of Americans care more about economic issues versus social issues and, of course, their health,' the anchor said. 'How do you respond? How do you think the White House can do better?'  'No you-know-what Sherlock! Of course they do!' Psaki replied.   Democratic pollster Brian Stryker said in a recent interview with The New York Times about his findings that the 'Democrats have a problem.'  'People think we're more focused on social issues than the economy - and the economy is the No. 1 issue right now,' he said was the party's main branding problem.   White House press secretary Jen Psaki gave a snarky reply Friday morning...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged a question on Wednesday about whether or not it is acceptable for a president to stay in office after overseeing a copious amount of U.S. deaths from the Chinese coronavirus. As Breitbart News reported last week, the U.S. death toll from the Chinese coronavirus under Biden’s administration will soon surpass the death toll recorded during Trump’s administration, and in less time. Additionally, during an October 2020 presidential debate between Biden and Trump, Biden insisted that “anyone who’s responsible for that many deaths” — which at the time was at around 220,000 — “should not remain as President of the United States of America.” When asked by Fox News’s Peter Doocy if that is “still the standard now that more Americans have died under President Biden than President Trump,” Psaki outright dodged the question. Watch Below: Doocy asks Psaki if its still Bidens belief that "anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States of America" now that more have died under him than Trump. pic.twitter.com/l1aSkBD1lC...
    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) reportedly hung up on Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) after Boebert asked Omar to apologize for her antisemitic rhetoric during a phone call between the two regarding Boebert’s alleged anti-Muslim rhetoric. Boebert said in a video: She kept asking for a public apology, so I told Ilhan Omar that she should make a public apology to the American people for her anti-American, antisemitic anti-police rhetoric. She continued to press, and I continued to press back, and then Representative Omar hung up on me. “Rejecting an apology and hanging up on someone is part of cancel culture 101, and a pillar of the Democrat Party,” she continued. In 2019, Omar came under fire for posting an antisemitic cartoon by an artist who participated in Iran’s Holocaust denial contest to her Instagram account. She also accused pro-Israel Americans of having an “allegiance to a foreign country,” a common antisemitic trope used by both the far left and far right. Further, Omar falsely alleged that members of Congress support Israel because they are paid to do so, which is a classic anti-Jewish stereotype. The feud between Boebert...
    While spending the Thanksgiving holiday in Nantucket, Massachusetts, President Joe Biden was indecisive when asked which Northeastern chowder he preferred. "Do you prefer Manhattan or New England clam chowder?" a man asked Biden while he visited TownPool, a store that sells Nantucket-themed clothing. HILLARY CLINTON HAS COUGHING FIT DURING RACHEL MADDOW INTERVIEW "I don't like either," Biden answered. "Oh my God," the interviewer exclaimed. "Alright, good answer." Biden then changed his answer, saying he actually prefers New England clam chowder. View this post on Instagram A post shared by TownPool (@townpool) New England clam chowder and Manhattan clam chowder have shared a "divisive" rivalry, according to MyRecipes.com . "New England clam chowder is thick, creamy, and milky-white. Manhattan clam chowder is tomatoey, brothy, and clear. Both types share a clean, briny, and slightly-sweet flavor thanks to the clams — but that’s about it," the site says of the two styles of chowders.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci shot back at Sen. Ted Cruz who called for the Justice Department to prosecute him for allegedly lying about funding gain-of-function research. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases quipped about Jan. 6, which is when the Capitol riot took place, when he was asked about Cruz, one of the GOP lawmakers who have attacked him. "Yeah. I have to laugh at that. I should be prosecuted? What happened on Jan. 6, senator?" Fauci quipped during an appearance Sunday on CBS News's Face the Nation. Cruz was on of the GOP senators who committed to challenging the results of the 2020 election in the lead-up to Jan. 6. Although the riot disrupted the process of counting the electoral votes, President Joe Biden's victory was soon affirmed. Cruz is also one of the Republican lawmakers who have accused Fauci of lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research, in particular at a lab in Wuhan, China, the place where COVID-19 cases were first reported in 2019. His colleague, Sen. Rand Paul,...
    THE Turpin family children have claimed they were told "to Google it" when they asked for help from some guardians after their escape from their parents' House of Horrors. The 13 siblings were rescued from their Perris, California home almost four years ago when authorities found the children, who were between 2 to 29, living in their own filth and deprived of food and basic health care.  4The 13 Turpin children were rescued from their family home almost four years agoCredit: Refer to Caption 4Jordan Turpin was the one who escaped from her home and called the police, leading to her and her siblings' rescueCredit: ABC 20/20 Many hoped that once the siblings escaped their parents, they would be moving onto a brighter future and have stepped up to donate to the family. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case for some of the siblings as they reportedly do not have access to many of the resources and services that were promised to them. “They have been victimized again by the system,” said Mike Hestrin, the Riverside County district attorney, told...
    LIONEL MESSI has offered Liverpool hope of signing Kylian Mbappe by placing doubt on his move to Real Madrid. The Spanish giants had two bids rejected for Mbappe last summer. 1Lionel Messi has voiced doubt on Kylian Mbappe's proposed move to Real MadridCredit: AFP But they remain keen on the forward, who is still yet to put pen to paper on a new contract despite his current deal expiring next summer.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday defended President Joe Biden's decision to spend the Thanksgiving on Nantucket, saying food prices weren't that high and everyone should spend the holiday with loved ones. The president has come under fire for heading to the posh island off the coast of Massachusetts to spend the rest of the week at the home of billionaire Carlyle group co-founder David Rubenstein.  Biden ran for president as a symbol and representative of the middle class. The Biden family has been spending Thanksgiving on the island nearly every year since 1975, including when he was vice president. 'There are abundance of turkeys available. They're about $1 more for a 20 pound bird, which is a huge bird if you're feeding a very big family, and that's something that again, we've been working to make sure people have more money in their pockets to address,' she said at her daily White House press briefing.

    Asked if President Biden would apologize to Kyle Rittenhouse for suggesting he was a white supremacist, press secretary Jen Psaki deflected to President Trump's refusal to condemn white supremacy.  'Would the president ever apologize to the acquitted Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse for suggesting online and on TV that he is a white supremacist?' Fox News' Peter Doocy asked Psaki in a daily briefing.  'President Trump ... didn't just refuse to condemn militia groups on the debate stage he actively encouraged them throughout his presidency,' Psaki replied.  'So what we've seen are the tragic consequences of that - when people think it's okay to take the law into their own hands instead of allowing law enforcement to do its job.'  Psaki continued: 'The president spoke to the verdict last week. He has obviously condemned the hatred and division and violence from groups like the Proud Boys, and obviously that individual has posed in photos with, but beyond that I'll leave it to his comments around the verdict.'  During the trial, prosecutors presented a photo of Rittenhouse as evidence of him consorting with...
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk has shaved off about $380 million from his tax bill by exercising his stock options  and selling the newly acquired shares during a dip in the company's stock price. The maneuver comes after he asked his Twitter followers whether he should sell 10 percent of his stock in a Twitter poll earlier this month. Musk danced around the higher taxes by exercising stock options - a type of equity compensation in which employees are given the option to buy shares in the future at a pre-determined rate that is often far below their market value. The entrepreneur bought the shares - worth $1,151.30 at market value - for $6.24 each and sold them at a time when they're cheaper than their all-time high of $1,229.91 earlier this month, ensuring that he'll pay a lower tax rate on them. He will have to pay taxes on the difference between the 'strike price' and the actual value of the shares - making for a total tax bill of about $2.7 billion. Musk, 50, sold off about 2.6 million...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki ended whatever suspense surrounded President Joe Biden’s potential reelection bid when she was asked about the subject during an Air Force One briefing. Psaki briefed reporters aboard Air Force One Monday en route to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden celebrated “Friendsgiving” with service members and military families as part of the “Joining Forces” initiative. During that gaggle, a reporter noted that “Over the weekend, there were reports that President Biden was telling allies that he is going to run for reelection in 2024,” and asked “Can you confirm? Is he going to run in 2024? Is he telling staff that?” Psaki delivered the “scoop,” replying “He is. That’s his intention.” The bombshell comes days after ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos asked Vice President Kamala Harris whether Biden has told her he will run for reelection in 2024. Harris gave a lengthy answer that amounted to saying they have more important things to do and say. That was followed shortly by reporting that Biden has tried to quell this sort...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) dodged a question during a friendly interview with Chris Hayes when the MSNBC anchor asked what the Jewish community thinks of her comments that have been criticized as anti-Semitic. During a Tuesday episode of Hayes’s podcast, Why Is This Happening?, Hayes said: One axis of criticism that you’ve received is around things you’ve said about either Israeli policy, the Israeli government. People have accused you of anti-Semitism in remarks that you’ve made, or on Twitter about [former Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu. I wonder what your relationship is like with – obviously, you have a lot of Jewish folks in your district. You have a lot of synagogues. You have visited the very vibrant Jewish world in the Twin Cities. What have those relationships been like, what those conversations have been like? Because I do know people that do have pretty progressive politics that I do think have been offended or have questioned your heart on these matters. And I know that’s happened in your district. I’m curious what those conversations have been like. There...
    TOKYO (AP) — Even Shohei Ohtani, arguably the best player in the major leagues, feels down at times, particularly when his team isn’t winning. And that’s been the case during each of the four seasons he’s been with the Los Angeles Angels, all of which have ended with losing records. Sharing his mental state was among the few small nuggets Ohtani revealed in an hour-long interview on Monday at the Japan National Press Club. The Q-and-A session focused heavily on local matters about being back home, about local food and local baseball personalities, and even questions about when the 27-year-old might start a family. “I think this is something you cannot force to happen, it just naturally happens,” he said, speaking in Japanese through an interpreter. “I think it’s still well ahead of me.” Ohtani is under contract for next season at $5.5 million, which will be his highest annual salary thus far. He remains under the Angels’ control through 2023 and could become a free agent after that season. Questions about free agency did not come up in...
    Vice President Kamala Harris' increasing frustration and tension with President Joe Biden's inner circle has been laid bare in a new report. Harris and her top aides are frustrated with Biden for defending 'white man' Pete Buttigieg, the transportation secretary, more vigorously than her, and handing her 'no-win' issues like the border crisis, according to a CNN report citing interviews with dozens of current an former Harris aides and White House officials. At the same time, Biden's staff are said to be privately frustrated with Harris over controversies they view as self-inflicted, such as her 'awkward' laughter when asked about visiting the border. With her approval rating plunging even further than Biden's in recent months, rumors have even circulated among aides that he is considering appointing her to the Supreme Court as a stealthy means of selecting a new VP.  Publicly, the White House insists the relationship between Biden and Harris remains harmonious and productive. But privately, Harris aides gripe that she's been set up to fail, and handed a portfolio that is not commensurate with her historic status as...
    Newsome then invoked the Boston Tea Party, and described it as a "riot." "I'm not asking about the Boston Tea Party, Hawk," Bongino shot back. "I'm asking you a simple question: Do you condemn violence or not?" Still not responding to the question directly, Newsome said he would not condemn violence per se because he believes in self-defense. Bongino then asked once again. "Do you condemn riots and burning down buildings after a police use-of-force incident you don't like?" he asked. "No. What I'll say is: I understand when a police officer unjustifiably kills someone, why people lash out. I understand that completely," Newsome responded. "I'm not going to condemn, nor am I going to condone it." "Isn't that cowardly?" Bongino fired back. "'I'm not going to condemn it, but I'm not going to condone it — so I don't want to take a stand'? … You seem to talk a lot of junk and then when I put you on the spot you won't answer a damn question. Do you condone violence or you condemn violence? You're all over...
    A Black Lives Matter activist ended up walking out of an interview on Fox News on Saturday night after refusing to answer questions about rioting and vandalism linked to the group and the promise of more riots in New York City. Hawk Newsome, who is co-founder of BLM in New York City was asked by host Dan Bongino for his stance on violence linked to the group's protests in recent years and a threat he made earlier in the week as he claimed new policing plans for New York City by incoming Mayor Eric Adam would trigger 'riots and bloodshed' in the streets.  Saturday's interview came following a speech Newsome made on Wednesday outside Borough Hall, which saw him deliver some harsh words for the incoming mayor, should he go through with his plans to reinstate the NYPD's plainclothes cop units.  Hawk Newsome, right, who is co-founder of BLM in New York City was asked by Fox News host Dan Bongino, left, about his stance on violence linked to the group's protests in recent years 'If he thinks that they're going...
    What about the verdict? Of course, Rittenhouse told Fox News she is hoping for — and expecting — a not guilty verdict. "I'm hoping that the outcome is what I expect: a not guilty verdict," she explained. "But I know a lot of people out there wants (sic) my son to be guilty." "It's in the hands of the jury, and watching them, they've been taking notes, listening to the truth, and I hope they take that into what the outcome is going to be — not from the media, not from the president of the United States, not from celebrities, not from athletes: It's about the truth," she continued. Wendy Rittenhouse also said she believes Judge Bruce Schroeder has been "fair."
    FOXBORO (CBS) — Friday mornings with Bill Belichick are special. The Patriots head coach is usually in a pretty jovial mood and willing to open up on just about anything when chatting with reporters at the end of a given week. Whether that means he expounds on the intricacies of special teams or takes a trip down memory lane, “Friday Morning Bill” is a treat for football fans. This Friday was no different. READ MORE: What To Watch For When Patriots Host Browns In Week 10As the Patriots prepare to host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Belichick was asked about his opponent-specific approach to game-planning. His process is always evolving, but Belichick took Friday’s question as an opportunity to turn to Chinese general Sun Tzu, who authored The Art Of War, and “other great generals.” “You exploit your strengths and attack weaknesses. That’s about as fundamental as it gets,” Belichick said during his Friday Zoom session. “If there is something that you do well, you try to do it. If there is something that your opponent is weak at, you...
    If you thought the Ohio Republican Senate primary wasn’t wild enough already, one of the candidates gave a truly stunning answer to whether he is anti-semitic. The charge came from a radio ad Mark Pukita ran a few weeks ago that attacked opponent Josh Mandel with the line, “Are we seriously supposed to believe the most Christian values Senate candidate is Jewish?” “I am so sick of these phony caricatures,” the ad continues. At a Thursday night candidate forum, Pukita was asked for his response to opponents calling him anti-semitic, divisive, and inflammatory. “I don’t remember making comments about you — I didn’t laugh at you doing your events at churches,” he said to Mandel, who was sitting as Pukita spoke. And this is how he explained the ad going out of its way to highlight Mandel’s Jewish faith: In terms of anti-semitism, all I did in an ad was pointed out that Josh is going around saying he’s got the Bible in one hand and the Constitution in the other. Right, but he’s Jewish! That’s fine, everybody should know that...
    As the Virginia gubernatorial election draws closer, the campaign for Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe appears to be growing more nervous. On Sunday, Axios spoke with McAuliffe regarding his campaign and noted that his attitude "has taken on an air of tension — bordering on panic." For instance, his staff informed Axios their planned 20-minute interview, which the campaign requested following Axios' interview with Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin, "was being limited to five minutes." Furthermore, Axios described McAuliffe as agitated when asked about his campaign’s efforts to tie his Republican opponent, to former President Trump. VIRGINIA GOVERNOR’S RACE: HOW TO VOTE  "I’m not tying — he’s tying himself. He said, ‘I'm honored to receive his endorsement, so much of the reason why I'm running is because of Donald Trump.’ I’m not tying him; he is," McAuliffe said. McAuliffe previously showed some agitation on Tuesday when he abruptly ended a local Virginia TV interview. Like with Axios, the interview was meant to last twenty minutes, but McAuliffe cut off WJLA’s Nick Minock after only 10 minutes of speaking. "You should have asked...

    We always know that Denise Coder never hid her love for baseball and the Montreal Expos. Everyone hoped that the current election campaign against the current mayor of the city, Valerie Bland, would once again reveal his partisan side. To the surprise of the public, Denise Codder is cautious in her comments regarding the construction of a new stadium in the Peel Basin, and shares the same view of her opponent about the municipal tax holiday once the $ 580 million infrastructure is in place. Both candidates disagree on this popular leave and comment that there will be no concessions to Stephen Bronfman’s team if the plan is passed. In doing so, Kodare ensures that baseball mobilizes some who oppose the municipal contribution to facilitate a return to Montreal.

    Biden Is Looking at Possible SPR Release: Granholm www.youtube.com Some Americans have attributed blame to the Biden administration for rising fuel costs. While speaking to another interviewer on the same Bloomberg program, Granholm said, "We can't just produce oil for the United States. It is on a global market." "There are 23 million acres of public lands — that includes offshore and onshore — where there are leases ... that are not being used right now by oil and gas companies," Granholm said. "It is not the president's doing that is causing the oil and gas companies right now to decide to slow down," she claimed. CNBC reported:Asked by CNBC about the U.S.'s relationship with Saudi Arabia, the de-facto leader of OPEC, after the output decision, Granholm said: "In some places, we have strong relationships and in some places we wish our allies would move a little faster."

    Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm burst out laughing when asked Friday on Bloomberg TV what her plan is to increase oil production in the United States to ease rising gas prices. Host Tom Keene said, “In Sturgis, Michigan, it is $2.89 a gallon. I guess that’s better than in California. What is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America?” Granholm laughed and said, “That is hilarious. Would that I had the magic wand on this. As you know, of course, oil is a global market. It is controlled by a cartel. That cartel is called OPEC.

    Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm laughed out loud when asked during an interview Friday what her plan was to ease gasoline prices nationwide. “That is hilarious,” Granholm laughed when asked by a Bloomberg anchor. “Would that I had the magic wand on this.” Granholm then blamed Middle Eastern oil providers, repeating a Biden administration claim that oil prices are largely out of the federal government’s control. Crude oil prices, which are closely linked to both inflation and gasoline prices, surged again Friday after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and Russian producers declined to boost output at President Joe Biden’s request. Gasoline prices, meanwhile, increased and remained at their highest level since September 2014, according to Energy Information Administration (EIA) data released Monday. The average cost at the pump hit $3.42 per gallon on Friday, up 61.6% compared to one year ago, AAA data showed. Heating prices for American consumers this winter are also expected to rise as a result of increased energy costs, the federal government said last month. Propane heating costs reached their highest level since 2011 in October...

    Politician Nikki Haley has said elected government officials who are beyond a certain age should undergo a 'cognitive test' in order to hold public office. Haley, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations who also served as the 116th - and first female - governor of South Carolina from 2011 to 2017, made the comment in light of a series of gaffes made by 78-year-old President Joe Biden.  During an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) on Wednesday, Haley was asked specifically if she had any concerns about Biden, the oldest person to ever hold the presidency.  'Well what I'll tell you is, rather than making this about a person, we seriously need to have a conversation that if you're gonna have anyone above a certain age in a position of power — whether it's the House, whether it's the Senate, whether it's vice president, whether it's president — you should have some sort of cognitive test,' Haley said, comparing it to how lawmakers disclose their tax returns. 'And right now, let's face it, we've got a lot...
    A Connecticut man faces a bigotry charge for allegedly spitting, and yelling racial slurs, over a COVID-19 mask policy at a package store. Hartford County resident Daniel Henderson, age 57, of Stonington, was arrested on Wednesday, Oct. 27. According to Lieutenant Keith Egan, of the Stonington Police Department, Henderson had an active warrant stemming from an incident that occurred at Lefty’s Package Store in April. During the police investigation, Henderson admittedly entered Lefty's package store without fully wearing a face mask and got upset when the victim asked him to wear it properly, Egan said.  Based on the victim and witness accounts, Henderson then spat towards the victim, used racial slurs towards him, and threatened to damage the property before exiting, he added. Henderson was arrested and charged with: intimidation based on bigotry and breach of peace. He was released on a $10,000 non-surety bond.
    Richard Madden doesn’t want to say whether or not he wants to be James Bond. During a red carpet event for “Eternals,” the man favored to be the next actor to play 007 was asked whether or not he wanted the role. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) As soon as the question was asked, a woman stepped in and led Madden away before he could say a word.

For those of you who don’t know, Richard Madden is a hell...
    President Joe Biden got personal in Rome on Sunday when a reporter asked him about his meeting with Pope Francis last week, praising him as “a fine, decent, honorable man” and reminiscing about the comfort the pontiff gave the Biden family after the death of the president’s son Beau Biden. Biden, joined by First Lady Jill Biden, visited with Pope Francis on Friday. The president gave the pope a challenge coin from Beau Biden’s Army National Guard unit, cracked some very Biden-esque jokes, and also discussed the debate within American Catholic Churches over whether or not to deny communion to Catholics in elected office who support a legal right to abortion. Their meeting was closed to the press, but the Vatican did release edited video clips of their conversation. The discussion about abortion issues was not included in the clips they released, but Biden told White House pool reporters that Pope Francis had called him a “good Catholic” and encouraged him to keep receiving communion. Sunday, Biden spoke to reporters after the G-20 summit and a reporter asked the president what it...
    FIRST ON FOX: President Biden ignored a question from Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy on Sunday regarding his administration's reported plan to pay $450,000 per person to illegal immigrants who had been separated from their families during the Trump administration."Mr. President, is it true we're going give $450,000 to border crossers who are separated?" Doocy shouted as Biden rode an escalator following his press conference in Rome at the conclusion of a two-day meeting with G20 leaders. Biden, who had been looking toward the camera while Doocy asked the question, responded by looking away and scratching his forehead.

REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque (Reuters) The Wall Street Journal reported last Thursday that the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments of $450,000 to family members who were separated after crossing the border illegally during the Trump administration.

    ROME — The Vatican declined to comment Friday about U.S. President Joe Biden’s claim that Pope Francis had encouraged him to keep receiving Holy Communion at Mass. Biden met with Pope Francis in the Vatican for approximately 75 minutes Friday morning, after which reporters asked him if the topic of abortion had come up during their meeting. “No, it didn’t,” Biden said. “It came up — we just talked about the fact that he was happy I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving Communion.” A number of U.S. bishops have urged Biden to stop referring to himself as a “devout Catholic” because of his vocal stand against core Church teachings on abortion, same-sex marriage, transgenderism, and religious freedom. Some prelates have said publicly that the president should voluntarily cease receiving Holy Communion.

    REVEALING the most annoying part of her job, one waitress tells how customers make some VERY awkward requests. When it comes to splitting the bill specifically, she says that restaurants guests request to pay for the exact amount they consumed as opposed to 50/50. 2The TikTok user acted out the customer interactionCredit: Tik Tok Acting out her encounter with a customer on her TikTok channel, she reveals how one woman wanted to pay for the exact amount of bites of food she had. Posting under the domain @snerixx she shows when a customer asked to split the bill, she told her she could split it 50/50 for them or 25/75 but the guest was much more specific. Mimicking the guest's response she said: "Well I know personally, I had three out of those eight mozzarella sticks, and I had about a quarter of the chips over there so if you could just split it that way." The customer continued saying that the pair didn't enjoy the dessert so only wanted to pay for half of it. FABULOUS BINGO: GET A...
    MIKE TYSON could not help but laugh when asked if he thinks he can take on Logan Paul in the boxing ring. Speculation has grown over the last few weeks that Paul could be his next opponent, with Tyson eager to get back in the ring. 2Mike Tyson laughed when asked if he was capable of taking on Logan PaulCredit: Reuters 2Paul has been rumoured to fight Tyson nextCredit: Getty Images - Getty There is a 29-year age gap between the pair and Tyson has not fought since November 2020, but he did not rule out a bout with the Youtuber. Tyson fought Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match the last time he put on the gloves, and this match-up could follow that set-up.

    Video has emerged of youtuber turned boxer Logan Paul throwing blows at a fan who called him a 'p***y' outside a Hollywood nightclub. Paul, 26, was leaving the Nightingale nightclub in Los Angeles early this morning with friend and podcast co-host Mike Majlak when a group of fans accosted the pair. The fans crowded Paul, who looked visibly uncomfortable, in the parking lot as they asked incessantly whether he intends to fight heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson.  As Paul was stood, seemingly waiting to respond, a fan cut in with 'bro are you a p***y or what?', which hit a nerve with the YouTube star. Paul stepped forward and launched a pair of open-handed strikes at the fan, who turned away before he was pushed back by Majlak and then hauled away by a security guard. Rumors of an exhibition fight between Paul and Tyson have picked up in recent days after it was reported Iron Mike is looking to make a return to the ring in 2022.   Paul (right) stepped forward to confront the fan (left) who just moments...
    It was everything the Miami Dolphins could have asked for entering the final minutes of a closely fought contest. The offense stepped up and delivered a fourth-quarter lead with 2:27 left in the game, and all the Miami Dolphins defense — the better side of the team, the more talented and more reliable unit — had to do was keep the Atlanta Falcons from getting into field goal range. Is that too much to ask for from a unit that carried the franchise last season, and the past two decades, and had propped this floundering team up during its early struggles this season? Apparently, it was because all Matt Ryan needed was two passes to Kyle Pitts to get the Falcons in position for Younghoo Koo to make a game-winning 36-yard field goal during Sunday’s 30-28 loss, which delivered Miami’s sixth straight loss. There was the 23-yarder to Pitts that put the Falcons on Atlanta’s 48-yard line before the two-minute warning. Maybe the Dolphins weren’t in the right coverage that time? The two-minute warning break should give defensive coordinator Josh...
    Death of child whose skeletal remains were found in Texas apartment ruled homicide An Illinois officer was fatally shot as he approached a suspected stolen vehicle, authorities say © Provided by Daily Mail MailOnline logo Angelina Jolie hilariously gave a very frosty response when asked about her friendship with The Weeknd. The actress, 46, was promoting her new film the Eternals with co-star Salma Hayek on E!'s Daily Pop when she averted a question about her relationship with The I Feel It Coming singer, whom she has been spotted hanging out with on several occasions.

                        Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo was asked to leave a meeting with Florida Senator Tina Polsky, after refusing to wear a mask in her office. The meeting between Ladapo and Polsky was in request from the surgeon general who met with other senators who will weigh in on his confirmation in the upcoming legislative session. The significance behind Polsky’s request for Ladapo and two legislative aides, who were with Ladapo, to wear masks is related to Polsky’s diagnosis of stage one breast cancer in August. “I told him I had a serious medical condition,” said Polsky, who will begin radiation therapy treatment for cancer next week according to Florida Politics.  After Ladapo denied wearing a mask and offered to take the meeting outside, Polsky said, “I don’t want to go outside. I want you to sit in my office and talk to you.” Following a brief back-and-forth between the two, Polsky asked Ladapo why he could not wear a mask following her request. In his response, Polsky said,...
    Attorney General Merrick Garland dismissed a press release issued by his own department when asked why he put the Department of Justice ’s National Security Division on the case of protesting parents if he didn't consider them "domestic terrorists." Garland's confusing spin came during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday when he was asked about a controversial memo he issued Oct. 4. The DOJ press release announced a task force that includes the FBI to help address an alleged threat posed by parents angry about progressive public school curricula. The memo said the DOJ "will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel." One new DOJ initiative will “determine how federal enforcement tools can be used to prosecute these crimes,” the press release stated. While Garland's memo did not mention the National Security Division, which deals with terrorism and other threats, the accompanying DOJ press release did, naming it as part of the new task force. Garland on Thursday told lawmakers he could not "imagine a circumstance...
