    Prince Andrew's former girlfriend Lady Victoria Hervey was spotted stepping out in Los Angeles yesterday following her appearance in a bombshell ITV documentary about the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.   The 44-year-old socialite and former 'It Girl', who is the daughter of the 6th Marquess of Bristol and the Duke of York's former love interest, told the documentary, Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile, how Epstein had 'sat back and watched' as Ghislaine Maxwell went 'fishing' for girls.   Speaking to the programme's presenter, Ranvir Singh, she said she felt like she'd been used as 'bait' at the time by Maxwell and Epstein, describing how she'd first met the pair 20 years ago when she was 'really young and naïve'.   She told the documentary, which aired at 9pm in the UK: 'Jeffrey was really the frontman and Ghislaine was the accomplice. It was kind of like a Batman and Robin, and they were a double act. I don't think Jeffrey could have done any of it without Ghislaine.' Lady Victoria was twice spotted stepping out in LA yesterday, firstly walking her dog in a low-key ensemble,...
    Getty Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo Adam Levine was one of the original coaches on NBC’s “The Voice,” but the Maroon 5 frontman left the show after season 16 of the show. Levine’s departure was very public, but there have been different reports on the reasons he actually left the show. According to TVLine’s 2019 report, Levine and the rest of the season 16 coaches were set to pre-tape the Semifinals that season on a Sunday, but Levine did not want to go. He had no artists remaining on his team at the time, so he had no chance of winning the show. The Monday following the taping, the four coaches were set to perform in New York. Sources told TV Line that Levine was being difficult and did not want to attend the taping, and he reportedly expressed his frustration openly. However, as noted by Good Housekeeping, the aforementioned rumors were not confirmed by NBC, so “take it with a grain of salt.” Read on to learn more about what Levine has said about why he left “The...
    Kirk Twigg Another day, another chilling turn of events taking place in a school board here in the United States. At this point in the political cycle, if you’re not following your local school board’s decisions, I implore you to take some time and read up on it, whether or not you have loved ones in schools. Local elections aren’t always glamorous and certainly don’t get as much screen time as they deserve, but they’re deeply important. One example comes to us from the Spotsylvania County School Board in Livingston, Virginia, where Kirk Twigg was recently appointed to serve as the board’s new chair. This local appointment is getting national coverage because Twigg, who formerly served as a district member on the board, has infamously called for folks to ban and even burn books found in school libraries. What’s offensive about the books? Frankly, nothing. But Twigg—like a number of other conservatives waging similar battles across the nation—insists they’re “sexually explicit” and inappropriate for students. The reality is, of course, that the books overwhelmingly feature LGBTQ+ characters and characters of color. Sadly,...
    A former Paterson police officer has settled a discrimination lawsuit against the city stemming from a shooting. Haydee Santana, 53, claimed she was treated differently from male colleagues in similar circumstances after she shot an unarmed man who charged at her in front of his children. Santana, who said she was forced to retire on a disability pension in 2018 after 24 years with the Paterson Police Department, settled her suit for $185,000, city officials confirmed. The civilian she shot, Larry Bouie, settled a suit against the city for $450,000 last year. The city should have sent her for stress counseling or a psychiatric exam after she shot Bouie in the stomach while on duty in front of his two children outside the Frank X. Graves Public Safety Complex on Oct. 29, 2016. The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office reported at the time that Bouie apparently was under the influence of drugs and was "screaming and flailing his arms” when he charged at Santana and was shot once in the stomach. The incident was presented for a review to a...
    MADRID (AP) — Saturnino de la Fuente, a Spaniard described by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest man, died Tuesday at the age of 112, a Spanish news report said. De la Fuente passed away at home in León, a city in northwest Spain, the state-owned news agency EFE said. Guinness World Records named De la Fuente as the world’s oldest man last September but did not immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment. Authorities in León said they could not comment on a private matter. He was born in the Puente Castro neighborhood of León on Feb. 11, 1909, Guinness World Records said. De la Fuente was a cobbler by trade and started working in a shoe factory at age 13, EFE reported. He survived the Spanish flu pandemic that broke out in 1918 and with his wife Antonina had eight children, followed by 14 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren, according to EFE. He was to be buried Wednesday at a local cemetery, the agency said. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not...
    By Ben Morse | CNN The Golden State Warriors have distanced themselves from comments made by Chamath Palihapitiya, a part owner who said that “nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs.” Palihapitiya made the comment on the “All-in Podcast” on Saturday, after co-host Jason Calacanis brought up US President Joe Biden’s “very strong” stance on the alleged human rights abuses faced by the Uyghur minority in China. “Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs, okay? You bring it up because you really care, and I think it’s nice that you care, the rest of us don’t care,” Palihapitiya said, while Calacanis reacted in surprise. “I’m just telling you…a very hard, ugly truth.

    A Texan man held hostage by a British terrorist during the 10-hour synagogue siege told on Monday of their dramatic escape, as Senator Ted Cruz joined calls for an urgent investigation into the case. Jeffrey Cohen, vice president for the board of trustees at Congregation Beth Israel, was one of four people held on Saturday in Colleyville, Texas, by Malik Faisal Akram, 44. Akram had arrived in the U.S. in mid December, landing at New York's JFK airport before making his way to Texas, buying a gun, and taking four people captive. Akram died on Saturday night shortly after the hostages fled - leaving many unanswered questions. Cohen on Monday wrote a lengthy Facebook post detailing the siege, and praising the active shooter training for teaching him how to handle the intense situation. 'First of all, we escaped,' said Cohen, an engineer at NASA's Johnson Space Center.  'We weren't released or freed. We escaped because we had training from the Secure Community Network on what to do in the event of an active shooter.  'This training saved our lives - I...
    Chamath Palihapitiya, the NBA team owner who told a podcast Saturday that “nobody cares” about the genocide of China’s Uyghur Muslim population, is a Democratic Party mega-donor who has flirted with the idea of running for governor of California. As Breitbart News reported, Palihapitiya, 45, the co-owner of the Golden State Warriors, told the All-In podcast that he did not care about the Uyghur issue: During his All-In podcast interview, Palihapitiya waved off concerns about China’s ongoing genocide against the Uyghurs, saying, “Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs.” Palihapitiya, the CEO of Societal Capital which boasts that its call is “solving the world’s hardest problems,” shocked podcast host David Sacks when he dismissed concerns about the enslavement of millions of Chinese Uyghurs because he feels no one cares about them. Palihapitiya went on to add that he has other priorities to worry about. Palihapitiya is also a major donor to the Democratic Party. As Breitbart News reported last year: “Palihapitiya, the CEO of venture capital firm Social Capital, gave more than $1 million to Democrats in the last election — including...
    SAN JOSE – Timo Meier set multiple team records with his five-goal outburst Monday afternoon in the Sharks’ 6-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings at SAP Center. Meier became the first Sharks player to score five goals in a single game and his hat-trick in the first period, which came in 19:09, were the fastest three goals for any one player in Sharks history.

    A majority of Americans says in a stunning new poll that U.S. democracy is at risk of 'extinction.' The assessment comes in a new poll near the anniversary of President Joe Biden's first year and office, just days after the anniversary of the Capitol riot.   About half, or 26 per cent, said U.S. democracy's survival 'is secured for future generations,' according to the poll from Schoen Cooperman Research. Slightly fewer, 23 per cent, said they weren't sure, with 51 per cent saying the democracy was in danger of extinction.

    Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz has disbanded an alumni advisory committee that was created after a 2020 investigation found evidence of racial bias against black players in his program and bullying behavior by some of his assistants. The Iowa Gazette reports that Ferentz's decision to end the committee came shortly after its leader, former offensive lineman David Porter, suggested it was time for Iowa to part ways with Ferentz. But Ferentz said he had decided to overhaul the committee last fall before Porter made his comment to other committee members in a text message. 'I have come to a decision that this is an appropriate time to dissolve our committee as it stands currently,' Ferentz wrote in an email to the 10-member committee on Tuesday. 'As we start a new calendar year and prepare to move forward with our preparation for the 2022 season, I am giving thought to how we restructure the committee/board in a way that best serves our program moving forward.'

                 Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) last week said he disagreed with former President Donald Trump’s (R) decisions to shut down the economy in the early stages of the COVID pandemic. The latest comments from the governor indicate a growing split between DeSantis and Trump as the rumors of the 2024 presidential election swirl. “I never thought in February, early March, that [the coronavirus] would lead to locking down the country,” said DeSantis on the Ruthless podcast. DeSantis also said he was caught off guard when the White House was seriously considering shut down options and that he wishes he pushed back harder against those options. Recently, Trump called some politicians “gutless” for not disclosing their booster status to the public. Many pundits felts Trump’s comments were a subtle jab at DeSantis who has not said if he has received the booster. “Well, I’ve taken it,” said Trump. “I’ve had the booster. Many politicians–I watched a couple of politicians be interviewed and one of the questions was, ‘Did you get the booster?’ – because they had the vaccine –...
    New York City Mayor Eric Adams is not even three weeks into his tenure, but he’s already checked off a major milestone with a Big Apple institution: getting parodied on Saturday Night Live. Adams was a good sport about his late night televised mocking, and tweeted some tips for the actor who portrayed him. Adams, who was sworn into office shortly after the New Year’s ball dropped in Times Square, has found himself embroiled in a number of headlines that made national news, for reasons good, bad, and tragic: his 911 call to report a fight on a subway platform he witnessed during his commute on his first day of work, his pledge to keep schools open, his controversial comments about “low-skilled workers,” accusations of favoritism when he appointed his brother to a key New York Police Department (NYPD) post, and the city’s response to a deadly apartment fire in the Bronx. SNL’s Chris Redd took on Adams’ blunt way of speaking and pride in his past as an NYPD captain. The sketch opened with Broadway actress Ariana DeBose, the...
    Bill Belichick, who has a great sense of humor, once half-jokingly talked of never coaching into his 70s. Well, Belichick turns 70 years old in April and that will be about the time he’s preparing for his 23rd season with the New England Patriots. Because it’s apparently Belichick’s plan to keep coaching into his 70s. He confirmed as much to reporters during a press conference Sunday morning.

    ONE of the perks of moving into a new rented place is that the landlord will usually pay to have it deep cleaned beforehand.

    Saturday Night Live's Michael Che joked about Stewart Rhodes' eye patch days after the leader of the Oath Keepers was arrested on sedition charges for allegedly spending months coordinating the January 6 riot. Che introduced the news about Rhodes' recent arrest on multiple charges, including the rarely used 'seditious conspiracy.' 'But I don't know, he looks pretty remorseful,' Che said. 'Hopefully he can patch things up.'  The Weekend Update host then seemed to backtrack on his joke.  'That wasn't an eye joke. I was being genuine,' he said to cautious laughter before doubling down. 'Rhodes is being accused of messaging his right-wing group with instructions on how to use force to attack the Capitol. Authorities knew the messages were from Rhodes because they all began with 'Arr, matey,'" he said.  'That wasn't an eye joke,' he insisted. 'It wasn't an eye joke,' added co-host Colin Jost.  In 2020, SNL cast member Pete Davison said he was 'forced to apologize' to Rep. Dan Crenshaw in 2018 after making a joke about his eye patch, which he wears in public - in...

    In newly-unearthed audio, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy endorsed a bipartisan investigation into the Captiol riot on January 6, 2021 and said that former President Donald Trump told him he felt some responsibility for it. The interview on a local radio station in California just days after the attack has resurfaced right after McCarthy said he would not cooperate with the now ongoing Jan. 6 investigation panel. On Thursday, McCarthy was asked by CNN reporter Manu Raju about how he had said he was 'willing to testify' about Jan. 6 but now did not support the select committee hearing. The House Minority Leader interrupted, saying, 'That's not true. Ask your question. I'll verify what's true in there.'  CNN has since unearthed two audio clips in which McCarthy called for the investigation and blamed Trump for the attack.   House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy bristled at questions on Thursday about why he would not cooperate with the Jan. 6 investigation, turning instead to attack House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and saying he had nothing to offer the House probe Former President Donald Trump...

    CHICAGO (CBS Chicago/CBSNewYork/AP) — Recently-inaugurated New York City Mayor Eric Adams took a shot at Chicago this week as he addressed discussions with the city’s teachers’ union on remote learning and COVID-19 protocols. As Mayor Lori Lightfoot has said in Chicago, Adams has insisted that the safest place for children is to be in school. But on Thursday, Adams said he was considering allowing New York City Public Schools to return to some form of virtual instruction amid the COVID-19 surge there, because “we do have to be honest that there’s a substantial number of children, for whatever reason, parents are not bringing them to school.” READ MORE: Some Doctors At Chicago Are Hospitals Are Optimistic About What Look Like Downward COVID-19 TrendlinesMichael Mulgrew, the president of the United Federation of Teachers union representing the city’s public school teachers, had asked the mayor to postpone in-person learning as Adams took office.

    (CNN)House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said publicly and privately in the days following the deadly riots at the US Capitol that President Donald Trump admitted personally bearing some responsibility for the attack -- one of several reasons why the select committee on January 6 wants to hear from the House's top Republican.McCarthy shared the details of his conversation with Trump in a little-noticed local radio interview done a week after the insurrection, in which McCarthy said he supported a committee to investigate the attack and supported censuring then-President Trump. While McCarthy made similar comments about supporting censure and a bipartisan commission in other places around the same time, the radio interview -- in which McCarthy has harsh words for Trump and strongly condemns the violent attack -- provides yet another example of how the California Republican has shifted his tone in the year since the insurrection. "I say he has responsibility," McCarthy said on KERN, a local radio station in Bakersfield, California, on January 12 of last year. "He told me personally that he does have some responsibility. I think...
    New York City's new mayor announced on Thursday that he is considering allowing the nation's largest school district to return to some form of virtual instruction - even as COVID cases in the Big Apple start to plateau.  Eric Adams, who took office on New Year's, said on Thursday he is 'working closely with the president of the UFT' to 'find the right way to educate our children in a very safe environment. 'And if we're able to put in place a temporary remote option, we're welcome to do so,' he said, much to the shock of many New York City parents. But, he added, he aims to keep children in school, as he has previously stated. 'I want children in school because it's not only the academics,' Adams said. 'You hear me say it al the time, it is the holistic approach [to] the full development of the personhood of the children. 'All the experts state they should be in school now.'  According to New York City COVID data, there were 33,205 new cases reported throughout the five boroughs...
    A female United States Air Force captain who quit special forces training three times but was reinstated admitted in an April memo that her treatment appeared unfair. The female captain, who has been named in an anonymous letter posted online as Captain Morgan Mosby, had passed the physical fitness test needed to graduate from the special warfare assessment and selection course in January 2021. But when she left for Combat Control School in North Carolina - the most challenging part of a years-long training that entails air traffic control, parachute and dive training - the captain reportedly learned that the physical training standards had been lowered. 'I believe the change in standards invalidated me with a majority of my team,' she wrote in an April 2021 memo obtained by Air Force Times. 'One [instructor] cadre member had a conversation with a student and said the cadre "rioted" when they found out the PT test was changing back to lesser standards. 'Perhaps all of this timing was coincidental, but looks highly suspicious with my arrival on campus.' She noted that her prospective...

    Sen. Joe Manchin on Thursday issued a lengthy written statement reiterating his support for the filibuster amid calls from some Senate Democrats and President Joe Biden to eliminate or scale back the rule to pass voting rights legislation. The House passed the voting rights legislation earlier Thursday ahead of an expected Senate vote. But without the requisite number of votes, Senate Democrats cannot pass it without changing filibuster rules. Manchin’s comments came shortly after Arizona Sen. Krysten Sinema reiterated her support for the 60-vote threshold in a speech on the Senate floor. The opposition from Manchin and Sinema leaves Democrats unlikely to pass their voting rights legislation at present. DEMOCRATS' AGENDA PLUNGES INTO UNCERTAINTY FOLLOWING BIDEN VISIT In the statement, the West Virginia Democrat cited May 2010 testimony from then-Sen. Robert Byrd, who was asked by “then-Chairman Chuck Schumer” to testify on the filibuster “because of his ‘unsurpassed knowledge’ on the subject.” Manchin said Byrd quoted James Madison who argued, “The purpose of the Senate was ‘first, to protect the people against their rulers,...
    Conservative radio host Glenn Beck is not doing well in his struggle with COVID-19, according to the Daily Beast. However, Beck made it clear that he's using the medication known as ivermectin, which has not been proven to be an effective treatment. “I am great, Mark. I am great, Mark,” Beck told Mark Levin. “Despite having COVID and seeing the destruction of our country,” he added. “Do you have COVID right now?” Levin asked. “Yeah, I do,” Beck responded, adding, “It’s [COVID-19] starting to go into my lungs today and a little disturbing. I’m on all the medications and treatments and everything else, so.” This is the second time that Beck has had COVID, after telling Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he had it in April 2021. It was one of the reasons that he said he didn't need to get the vaccine. "It’s all good," Beck said coughing in his conversation with Levin. "Mark, I am not concerned about it. I’m really not. I just am so done with this whole COVID thing. I know it is...

Having his say: Ricky Gervais has called Pope Francis' comments about people choosing to have pets instead of children 'stupid' 'It's a stupid thing to say, isn't it? How can not having children be selfish? How can it be selfish not to bring something into the world that doesn't exist on any level?

    WE all like to show the most flattering versions of ourselves on dating profiles, but there’s a fine line between a little exaggeration and a full-blown lie. A woman went on a Tinder date with a man who claimed he was six foot tall but was really only five foot six - his lie backfired when he took it too far.  2Vanessa told her followers a Tinder horror storyCredit: TikTok/@youcanjustcallmevanessa 2Many commenters related to the hilarious dateCredit: TikTok/@youcanjustcallmevanessa TikTok user Vanessa shared the Tinder horror story with her followers and people were left in stitches.

You can’t be six feet because I’m five foot nine and, no offence, but...
    Reinforcing the degree to which Republicans do not want the truth about events on Jan. 6 to reach the public, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has announced he will not cooperate with a request to voluntarily testify before the select committee investigating the assault on the Capitol. In refusing the request, McCarthy becomes the latest in a string of Republican representatives who have made it clear that talking about their role in events leading up to the insurgency is the last thing they want to do. On Wednesday, the U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 Attack on the United States Capitol sent a letter to McCarthy making clear that his testimony is critical to investigation of events that sent Congress scrambling as the Capitol was invaded. McCarthy didn’t just speak with Donald Trump before and after the attempt to prevent the counting of electoral votes, he had a phone conversations with Trump in the midst of the hours-long violence. That conversation reportedly included McCarthy yelling in anger “Who the fuck do you think you are talking to?” after Trump refused...

    A Thai hotel has threatened to sue a guest for £70,000 after she gave the hotel a 6/10 rating and said in a review that it was 'too expensive'.  The guest, identified as Ms Khing, rated the Ozone Hotel near Khao Yai national park in central Thailand on Agoda.com on December 19 after staying there in June.  'The room did not look new as the photos suggested,' she wrote in a review that has since been deleted. 'It wasn't clean. I could not call reception from my room, so I had to walk down by myself. Night-shift staffers were not so helpful, but some were welcoming.  'I would like [the hotel] to adjust the price and improve the quality to match the price. If the opportunity presents itself, I will visit again.' The hotel responded politely on the site but later phoned Ms Khing to demand she remove the review, pay £1,100 a day in compensation and fork out £65,850 for damages. Her lawyer said that Ozone Hotel had repeatedly demanded money and an apology for seven consecutive days before threatening...

    Donald Trump hung up on NPR during a dial-in interview Tuesday when host Steve Inskeep repeatedly pushed the former president on his election fraud claims. After badgering Trump for around nine minutes on his claims the 2020 presidential election was stolen, the ex-president got fed up and abruptly ended the interview, which was scheduled for a 15-minute time slot. Trump blasted RINOs – Republicans in Name Only – for admitting that he lost the election, and particularly called out Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as a 'loser' during his Tuesday NPR interview for saying Joe Biden won in 2020. The interview became increasingly heated as Inskeep hounded Trump on his continued insistence that Democrats stole and 'rigged' the election in favor of Biden. The 45th president noted as evidence of foul play that Biden's campaign event crowd sizes were minuscule compared to his massive rallies. 'Nobody believes – do you think Biden got 80 million votes?' Trump questioned to Inskeep. 'It's true,' he pushed back, clearly becoming frustrated with the back-and-forth. 'I don't believe it,' Trump said. 'Let me ask...
