    Elon Musk's mother bashed a New York Times' article about the white privilege her son allegedly enjoyed growing up in apartheid-era South Africa. Maye Musk condemned the article, published on Thursday, that suggested her son was sheltered from the segregation and anti-black government propaganda that plagued South Africa throughout his childhood.  In promoting the article on Twitter, the Times wrote: 'Elon Musk grew up in elite white communities in South Africa, detached from apartheid's atrocities and surrounded by anti-Black propaganda.  'He sees his takeover of Twitter as a free speech win but in his youth did not suffer the effects of misinformation,' The Times added, referencing Musk's $44 billion takeover of the social media platform.  Maye snapped back at the paper on Twitter, writing: 'In South Africa, if you publicly opposed apartheid, you went to jail. In Russia, if you publicly oppose the war, you go to jail. @nytimes, are you going to blame children for decisions made by governments?'  The New York Times published an article (pictured) suggesting Elon Musk was sheltered from the horrors of apartheid in South...
    In SEC filings, Musk declared, "I don’t have confidence in management nor do I believe I can drive the necessary change in the public market, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder." Musk purportedly plans to let go of Twitter's current CEO – Parag Agrawal. Musk allegedly already has a new Twitter chief executive lined up, but the report did not name the alleged candidate. "The company’s current CEO Parag Agrawal would also be set for a significant compensation package if the deal closes," TechCrunch reported. "If Musk were to bring in new management, Agrawal would receive $38.7 million due to a clause in his contract, according to the company’s latest proxy filing. Agrawal’s total compensation for 2021 was $30.4 million, largely in stock awards." Bloomberg reported on Thursday, "As he negotiated a $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter Inc. , Elon Musk told bankers that he would be focused on the social-media company's bottom line, and floated the idea of cutting both costs and jobs, according to people familiar with the matter." The Washington Post...
    Former President Donald Trump's lawyer lodged an appeal against a New York judge's decision to hold him in contempt of court on Wednesday, 24 hours after a $10,000 a day fine began accumulating. New York state Supreme Court justice Arthur Engoron on Monday said Trump had failed to comply with a subpoena to turn over documents about his business practises to New York Attorney General Letitia James on Monday, and ordered the hefty fine. Trump's lawyer, Alina Habba, filed a notice of appeal on Wednesday, making good on her promise to challenge the ruling.  She previously said James' office refused to engage in 'good-faith discussions' before seeking to have him fined.  And during a hearing on Monday, she said Trump did not have any of the requested documents.  James responded to news of the appeal by saying it would not head off her investigation.  'The judge’s order was clear: Donald J. Trump is in contempt of court and must pay $10,000 a day until he complies with our subpoenas,' she said. 'We've seen this playbook before, and it has never stopped our...
    Alec Baldwin just can't catch a break from a run in with the law.  Baldwin, 64, was spotted opening an envelop containing a parking ticket after stopping to grab lunch near his home in ritzy East Hampton over the weekend.  Baldwin and his wife Hilaria, 38, who is pregnant with their seventh child, have been seen in the upscale Long Island community several times since he has come under fire for shooting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his western, Rust, last October. The actor, who was out for lunch Saturday, returned to his vehicle to find the dreaded bright yellow parking ticket on his windshield. He grabs it, gets into his car and looks at it before driving away.   The parking ticket comes just days after Baldwin said he was exonerated over Halyna Hutchins' death in a new report Wednesday that blasted producers of the film. The actor issued the statement shortly after New Mexican Occupational Health and Safety Bureau officials levied the maximum fine against the producers of Rust, the film on which Hutchins was shot and killed by...
    Donald Trump dismissed New York Attorney General Letitia James' attempt to have him held in contempt as 'little more than a contrived publicity stunt' in a late Tuesday court filing. The former president's attorney was responding to an earlier filing by James in which the New York Democrat accused Trump of failing to comply with a subpoena in her tax fraud investigation into his family real estate empire.  James asked a judge to hold him in contempt and fine him $10,000 for every day he did not turn over a set of documents linked to his and to the Trump Organization's financial dealings. Trump's attorney Alina Habba countered that the ex-leader had complied with the subpoena in full and just did not have the papers James was looking for -- passing the buck to the Trump Organization, whose attorneys have said they've already produced 6 million pages' worth of documents. After a 'dutiful search' for what prosecutors were seeking, Trump's attorney said he 'simply did not have any of the requested documents in his personal possession or custody.' Instead, Habba...
    (CNN)Former President Donald Trump does not have any documents subpoenaed by the New York attorney general's office as part of its civil investigation into the Trump Organization's finances and shouldn't be held in contempt, he told a state court."After conducting a diligent search and review, Respondent's counsel determined that Respondent was not in possession of any documents responsive to the Subpoena and that all potentially responsive documents were in the possession, custody or control of the Trump Organization," Trump attorney Alina Habba said in a court filing Tuesday.New York Attorney General Letitia James is seeking to hold Trump in contempt and fine him $10,000 a day for failing to comply with a subpoena sent in December for documents.

    James Carville, the notorious and legendary Democratic political operative, infamously once said, 'It's the economy, stupid.' He coined the term in 1992 while he was advising President Bill Clinton during his successful run for the White House. Carville was trying to get through to Clinton's campaign staff. He wanted his team to communicate to the public that Clinton was focused on the issues that were most important to them – their bank accounts. Suggesting that your own staff is 'stupid' is one thing. Suggesting that the American people are 'stupid' is another -- and that seems to be President Joe Biden's approach. 'I'm doing everything within my power by executive orders to bring down the price and address the Putin price hike,' Biden told an audience in Iowa on Tuesday. 'Your family budget, your ability to fill up your tank, none of it should hinge on whether a dictator declares war and commits genocide half a world away.' The White House slogan may as well be 'It's Putin's fault, stupid.' And he's talking to you and me. Well the American...
    Vladimir Putin's barbaric invasion of Ukraine has suffered another devastating blow after his force's death toll rose to 19,500 according to Kyiv estimates. Russia has only admitted 1,351 of its troops have died fighting in Ukraine since Putin invaded on February 24, a fraction of the figure estimated by Ukraine's armed forces. The catastrophic death toll comes as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky defended his criticism of NATO and the UN, saying he has had enough of diplomacy with Vladimir Putin. Zelensky told CBS 60 minutes on Sunday: 'When you are [working] at diplomacy, there are no results. All this is very bureaucratic. That's why the way I'm talking to them is absolutely justifiable. I don't have any more lives [to give]. I don't have any more emotions. 'I'm no longer interested in their diplomacy that leads to the destruction of my country. A lot of countries have changed their mind about Ukraine and about our people. But I think we've paid too high price for that.' It comes amid warnings from British intelligence chiefs that Putin's troops could use white phosphorous munitions in...
    Lewis Hamilton has revealed he is 'struggling mentally and emotionally' and said it is a 'constant effort to keep going'. The seven-time Formula One world champion, who finished 10th at last Sunday's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, made the admission via a post on his Instagram story on Thursday. 'It has been such a tough year already with everything that is happening around us,' said the 37-year-old. 'Hard some days to stay positive. 'I have struggled mentally and emotionally for a long time, to keep going is a constant effort but we have to keep fighting. We have so much to do and to achieve.' Hamilton, who has won more F1 races than any driver in the sport's history, is contesting his 16th season on the grid. But the British driver has endured a trying start to the new campaign in his uncompetitive Mercedes machinery.  Hamilton finished third at the opening round in Bahrain - after both Red Bull drivers retired in the closing stages with reliability failures - and then scored only a solitary point in Saudi Arabia last weekend....
    Donald Trump, Jr. is getting into the news business – well, the news aggregation business, and he says he’s doing it to amplify “real information” like Hunter Biden’s laptop, a supposed story that has become a fetish for the far right. “You know, just watching what happens there on social media, you can see the stories – the Hunter Biden laptop, the Wuhan lab leak theory and everything that was debunked and all of the nonsense,” Trump Jr. told Steve Bannon, referring to two “stories” that have been debunked but perhaps not in the way he likely believes.

    Mark Meadows, former Trump administration chief of staff who pushed the debunked claims that the 2020 election was stolen, registered to vote in a rusted tin-roofed mobile home where he has apparently has never lived, according to a new report. If that is true, the ex-North Carolina congressman might have committed voter fraud, according to The New Yorker magazine. Neighbors of the mobile home in Appalachia listed on Meadows' voter registration said they have never seen the politician there, magazine scribe Charles Bethea reports. When he quit his elected position to join the Trump administration, Meadows sold his property in Sapphire, North Carolina, and moved to a condo with his wife outside of Washington, D.C. He didn't buy any new property in the state, but in September 19, 2020, he registered to vote in the 11th Congressional District he once represented at a mobile home on Scaly Mountain, North Carolina. His move-date was listed as September 20. Duke University public policy professor Gerry Cohen, who wrote the state's voter-challenge law, says that registration is supposed to be for 'where you physically...
    Leo Terrell declared New York Mayor Eric Adams a “failure” just weeks into his tenure, citing friction between the former NYPD officer and local reporters. Adams blasted the city’s reporters on Tuesday during a screed in which he threatened to refuse to answer questions from the media in the future. The mayor, who is Black, inferred that negative reporting about his initial weeks running the country’s most populous city might be rooted in his skin color. WPIX reported, He accused reporters of writing stories in advance and not correctly characterizing his series of meetings with fellow Democrats in Albany. Specifically, he insisted there was “no arguing, no yelling, no screaming” in any of the meetings he was a part of. Adams seemed to fixate on an anonymous quote in the New York Daily News that said he got “beat up” by fellow lawmakers. He said if headlines like that persist, he would no longer take off-topic questions from reporters. “If this is how it’s going to be, I’m just going to come in, and do my announcements and bounce,” Adams...
    The affluent suburb of Paradise Valley in Arizona is a traditional Republican stronghold. With multi-million-dollar homes dotting a desert filled with towering saguaro cactus plants, its residents enjoy a choice of more than half a dozen golf courses, discreet upmarket shopping centres and award-winning restaurants, all nestled against the spectacular backdrop of Camelback Mountain. Donald Trump stormed to victory here in 2016. Donald Trump at a North Carolina campaign rally in 2019. His fortunes have changed drastically since the deadly Capitol riot Paradise Valley is part of Maricopa County, an area of 2.1 million voters which includes the city of Phoenix and its outlying areas and which has voted Republican for as long as anyone can remember. Yet in 2020, Maricopa County delivered a bombshell when voters turned in droves against President Trump in favour of Democratic rival Joe Biden. 'It was seismic,' says life-long Republican Benny White, who unsuccessfully ran for local office and found himself being chased down driveways by furious residents branding him a 'Trumper'. 'People just turned against Trump. He became a visceral figure of hate....
    Manhattan's new district attorney has unveiled a sweeping new policy to only seek prison sentences for a handful of offenses, and downgrade or dismiss charges for many felony crimes - and Mayor Eric Adams is on board with the plan. District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who took office over the weekend, revealed his progressive new approach in a 'day one policies and procedures' memo released on Monday. Bragg, 48, in the memo instructed his prosecutors to stop seeking prison sentences for any crimes aside from homicides, assaults resulting in serious injury, domestic violence felonies, sex offenses, public corruption, and 'major economic crimes'. 'This rule may be excepted only in extraordinary circumstances based on a holistic analysis of the facts, criminal history, victim's input (particularly in cases of violence or trauma), and any other information available,' the memo states.  The directive comes despite New York City seeing a surge in violent crime. City-wide, crime statistics published in December by the NYPD show that shootings, murders and auto grand larceny have all nearly doubled while murder is up 50 percent in the city...
    The uncle of a seven-year-old New Hampshire girl who has been missing for two years says he reported an incident about her to child services back in 2019, but that his nephew stopped talking to him because of it. Harmony Montgomery was last seen at a home near the river city of Manchester on October 2019 when she was five years old, police said this week.  Police received a missing person's report about her in the final week of December 2021. It is unclear why it took so long for her to be reported missing, but police say they are in contact with her relatives. On Sunday, officers searched a home in Manchester in connection to her disappearance.  The home appears to have been owned by a relative of Harmony's until it was foreclosed in September 2019, a month before her disappearance, according to county records. Harmony Montgomery, 7, has been missing since October 2019. The last time she was seen was at a house in Manchester, New Hampshire, after a 911 call had been made Police searched 77 Gilford Street...
