    THE Champions League final is a chance of redemption for Liverpool for their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in this fixture four years ago.

    NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander repeatedly asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki why the United States isn’t trying to topple Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin as a matter of policy. It may seem like it was longer, but it was just 11 days ago when  President Joe Biden closed his speech  at the Royal Castle in Warsaw, Poland with nine words about Vladimir Putin that instantly made news: “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.” That statement, which followed a parade of what have been described as atrocities and war crimes, touched off a blizzard of media attention that consisted of the idea that Biden may have been calling for regime change — which he and his administration quickly and categorically denied — and of giving the president the opportunity to express regret for having said it. At Tuesday’s press briefing, Mr. Alexander cited the more recent atrocities in Bucha, and asked why the U.S. views Putin “as someone who should be allowed to stay in power”: MR. ALEXANDER: So, given these awful videos and pictures we’re seeing of the atrocities...
    TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD claims Eden Hazard is easily his toughest-ever Premier League opponent. Liverpool wing-back TAA picked the ex-Chelsea playmaker ahead of Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne as he overlooked Cristiano Ronaldo completely. 2Liverpool wing-back Trent Alexander-Arnold rates Belgium superstar Eden Hazard as the most awkward customer he faced in the Premier LeagueCredit: Getty 2Hazard's Belgium team-mate Kevin De Bruyne was the other testing rival singled out by Trent Alexander-Arnold in the English top-flightCredit: Getty Hazard's form and fitness have nose-dived since quitting the Blues for Real Madrid two years ago. But  asked to name his best top-flight rival, Alexander-Arnold had no doubts. The England star, 23, told Amazon Prime: "Eden Hazard, yeah. the best by probably a little bit of a distance. "Maybe De Bruyne, but directly against an opponent would have to be Hazard. "Yeah - speed, agility, his awareness, his intelligence on and off the ball is unreal." Yet Hazard, 30, has been one of LaLiga's worst huge-money recruit ever. He bowed out of Stamford Bridge for an initial £88million fee that could eventually rake in £150m for Chelsea.

    JURGEN KLOPP has taken a swipe at Gareth Southgate for playing ‘the best right-back in the world’ Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield. The 22-year-old has become a fixture in Liverpool’s side in Klopp’s defence but started England’s 4-0 win over Andorra on Sunday in the centre of the pitch. 4TRent Alexander-Arnold was deployed in midfield for England last week against AndorraCredit: Getty 4Jurgen Klopp wants to why as the he claims the star is the 'best right-back in the world'Credit: PA There have been suggestions that the star could move into the middle but he failed to make much impact there for the Three Lions and was eventually switched back to his usual position for the second half at Wembley. Klopp believes that there is no need to convert Alexander-Arnold into a midfielder because he is now playing further forward for Liverpool.  Speaking ahead of the trip to Leeds on Sunday, the Anfield chief said: “If you watch our game his position already changed, when it's possible, there's no need to make him now a midfielder.  “It's a little bit a...

    DILLIAN WHYTE is back in action this weekend as he takes on Alexander Povetkin in a huge heavyweight rematch. The Body Snatcher was KO'd in the fifth round of the first fight and will be looking to write his own redemption story this weekend in Gibraltar. 1Whyte's clash with Povetkin will take place in GibraltarCredit: www.sunborngibraltar.com Why is Whyte vs Povetkin 2 taking place in Gibraltar? Whyte's big rematch with Povetkin was originally scheduled to take place on March 6 in London. But with Whyte training in Portugal, which was on the coronavirus red list at the time, the Brit would've had to quarantine for 10 days upon return to the UK, disrupting his training camp. So the fight was moved to Gibraltar, where Whyte and his team could drive to without having to quarantine.

    Dillian Whyte is extremely keen to get his hands on Alexander Povetkin in the rematch. The pair will fight each other on March 27 to determine the interim WBC heavyweight champion. In their first contest, the Russian dropped Whyte onto the canvas to secure a vicious KO win in round 5. However, the Brit wants to turn the tables in this rematch and stake his claim at a title shot. Recently, his promoter, Eddie Hearn, got interviewed by his own promotion, Matchroom Boxing. Here, he shed some light on Whyte’s mindset for the Povetkin rematch and why he’s rooting for an in-stadium audience. “Dillian wanted people there. Last time out, in the garden, difficult environment. This is an absolute must-win for Dillian Whyte, and he feels that with people there, it will just help him. That one or two percent to rise to the occasion and he’s going in with and seek and destroy mentality for Alexander Povetkin.” The last time Povetkin and Whyte touched gloves with each other was back in August 2020. Considering the pandemic, the fight got...
    NBC News’ White House correspondent Peter Alexander pushed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on why the administration won’t give former President Donald Trump credit for the vaccine. Alexander said during Friday’s press briefing that President Joe Biden’s address to the nation on the one year anniversary of the COVID-19 shutdown failed to credit Trump, as the vaccines were developed under his administration’s Operation Warp Speed. “Of course, he [Biden] spent a lot of time touting the success of vaccines, yet there was no mention of the president under whose administration vaccines were developed,” Alexander noted. “Does former President Donald Trump not deserve any credit on vaccines?” (RELATED: Jen Psaki: Trump Admin Doesn’t Deserve Credit For Vaccines ‘When Half A Million People In The Country Have Died Of This Pandemic’) WATCH: Psaki said that the administration has already “conveyed that” the progress “made on these vaccines was a Herculean incredible effort by science and by medical experts,” failing to include Trump and his administration in the compliment. She also touted the Biden administration and said that there are “clear” differences...

Their beloved Johnnies got their hopes up by playing terrific basketball for a month, only to lose games to two of the Big East’s worst teams — Butler and DePaul — that has likely ruined their NCAA Tournament hopes.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was questioned over the Biden administration’s handling of the TJ Ducklo situation before news of his resignation broke Saturday night after harassing a reporter. NBC’s Peter Alexander noted to Psaki that Ducklo left his job after being previously suspended for the threatening, misogynistic comments he made to Politico journalist Tara Palmeri. The blow-up has been a source of public intrigue for the White House since Alexander reminded Psaki that President Joe Biden said on his first day in office he would fire anyone on his team who disrespects their colleagues. “He didn’t fire TJ on the spot. He has since resigned,” Alexander noted. “Has the president’s position on talking down or disrespecting others changed?” Psaki’s answer: I think the president leads by example, and I try to do the same. On Saturday, when we announced that TJ Ducklo had resigned his position — something we all agreed was the right path forward — I made clear that every day, we’re going to meet the standard set out by the president in treating others with...

    It's not unusual for celebrities to give their children unique, and sometimes, bizarre names with a not-so obvious meaning. But it turns out George Clooney was having none of that when he and his wife Amal Alamuddin welcomed their twins to the world three-and-a-half years ago. The acclaimed actor's rationale was that life under the glare of his fame would be trouble enough for his kids without having weird names to boot. Scroll down to videos  Bucking the ttrend: George Clooney revealed that he refused to give his twins weird celebrity names, in an interview with AARP; he is pictured on Jimmy Kimmel Live in December 2020 After being known as the perpetual bachelor during the early years of his career, Clooney turned that single, ladies man persona upside down when he married Alamuddin in September 2014. He then earned the 'family man' title when the couple became parents to twins -- a boy and a girl -- in June 2017.

    SAN ANTONIO – As key battleground states continue to tally up mail-in ballots, the results are generally favoring Joe Biden —something Bexar County saw as well in its results. While a record number Bexar County voters cast absentee ballots -- 79,724 as of midday on Nov. 4 -- they were not spread out evenly between supporters of President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Biden, who received 58% of the overall vote in Bexar County, won a much larger percentage of the absentee ballot alone — 72%. Demonte Alexander, the director of public affairs at Bexar Facts, says a big turnout was a sure thing for the election. However, Alexander, who has a background with Democratic campaigns, thinks it was the COVID-19 pandemic that drove the demand for mail-in ballots. “People are afraid. I mean, a lot of people are immunocompromised. I mean, you’re waiting in line for hours at a time, and sometimes you’re outside six feet apart. But, you know, the wind is blowing. Somebody could cough. So there’s a lot of risk," Alexander said. As for...
    The former national security official who testified against President Donald Trump in last fall’s impeachment hearings told NBC Nighty News host Lester Holt that he was speaking out now to urge voters to defeat the president in November. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who recently retired from the U.S. Army, had served as the Director of European Affairs on Trump’s National Security Council up until earlier this year. In a striking moment last November, he testified before the House Intelligence Committee and publicly debunked a conspiracy theory that Trump had been pushing about Ukraine and the 2016 election. In the same interview on Monday, Vindman had acknowledged that he is now a “Never Trumper” after the White House attacked him on Twitter, Trump supporters called for his court martial for testifying about Trump, and he was humiliatingly escorted from the White House grounds when he was reassigned off of the NSC. “This interview will elicit strong reaction. some will call you bitter. Are you bitter?” Holt asked. “I don’t think so,” Vindman replied. “Are you angry?” “I don’t think so....
    SAN ANTONIO – The City of San Antonio failed to be transparent during the budget process, according to Demonte Alexander, director of external affairs and special projects for Bexar Facts. Alexander spoke with KSAT during a Q&A on Friday to discuss his recent column on San Antonio Report addressing the city’s proposed increase in police funding for the FY2021 city budget. Under the current proposal, the San Antonio Police Department’s general fund budget would increase by $8.1 million. The budget proposal does include cuts to police overtime and would switch the Crisis Response Team over to the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District. However, such cuts were outweighed by a scheduled 5% pay increase for officers and state-mandated increases for retirement health care. Those increases would put the department’s general fund budget at $487.2 million. Alexander said it was a “missed opportunity” by the city to be transparent about that mandatory increase during budget conversations with citizens, especially those who called for decreasing police funding. “So, I think we missed an opportunity there, really, you know, cut down some of the...

    PROTESTS have erupted in several cities in Belarus after a presidential vote that the opposition says was rigged. President Alexander Lukashenko has been re-elected for a sixth consecutive term in an election that saw his toughest opposition challenge in years. 6Protests erupted in several cities in Belarus overnightCredit: EPA However, there is widespread suspicion that the election was not fair, with two opposition candidates denied places on the ballot before one of them was jailed and the other fled to Russia, Sky News reports.

    After being suspended for months, the ATP Tour is finally returning. This is why Alexander Zverev is training very hard and it is the reason why he has made a change to his coaching team – adding David Ferrer. The German has just talked about why he chose Ferrer. Alexander Zverev On Why He Chose David Ferrer As His Coach David Ferrer was one of the most competitive players on the Tour. He was able to challenge even the best players such as the ‘Big 3’.  After playing for many years, Ferrer finally decided to retire in 2019. However, he could not leave tennis completely as he was just hired by Alexander Zverev. In a recent interview with Sportschau (Which was translated), Zverev talked about this partnership. He said, “When I was looking for another team member a few weeks ago, I had to keep thinking about David’s professionalism and his gift, everything from his physical and to be able to squeeze out playful requirements… Our personalities and goals go well together.” The German went on to talk about...
    On Friday morning during a White House press briefing, NBC’s Peter Alexander cornered Kayleigh McEnany on President Donald Trump’s suggestion of an election delay by asking why — if he’s so concerned about a rigged outcome — the administration is not devoting more resources to protect the vote. “If the president is so worried about how long it’ll take to count ballots in this election, then why isn’t the president and this White House doing everything it can to secure more funding for staffing and other resources to make sure that we can have a safe and proper election?” Alexander asked. McEnany dodged — offering up a boilerplate answer about the White House’s attention being concentrated on preventing voter fraud. “What this White House is focused on is making sure that our election is not riddled with voting fraud, and that the timetable is not hung up here,” McEnany said. “There are several lawsuits that the campaign has engaged on, and I would point you to the campaign for specifics on those.” Alexander intejected. “That doesn’t answer my question,...
    Lucian K. Truscott IV July 11, 2020 12:00PM (UTC) The United States Army is at heart like a college fraternity. At the top are the generals, the officers of the frat — seniors who have spent long years working their way to a position of privilege and power. Just beneath them are the colonels, juniors who have signed on to do the frat's shit work, hoping to be recognized by the seniors and rewarded by becoming a general, one of the frat's elected officers. Below them are the lesser members of the frat, the majors and captains and lieutenant colonels, and at the bottom are the pledges, the lieutenants, who are going through initiation into the mysterious customs and ways of the fraternity that is the Army. One of the most important stations on the climb to the top is the colonels list. This is an actual list at the Pentagon of all the lieutenant colonels who will be promoted to full colonel. It's the hurdle you must get over if you're ever to have any hope of becoming...
    NBC’s Peter Alexander grilled White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany over the Supreme Court’s ruling against President Donald Trump’s attempts to conceal his tax returns. McEnany faced a plethora of questions over the Supreme Court decision against Trump’s broad claims of criminal process immunity, and that the president cannot legally block New York prosecutors from reviewing his financial information. Alexander got the ball rolling when he asked if Trump still claims his taxes are under audit, and shortly after that, he noted that both of Trump’s appointments to the court ruled against him on the case. “He can releases taxes at any time,” Alexander noted. “Why shouldn’t the American public, at this point, believe the president has something he’s trying to hide?” After defending Trump’s audit claims, McEnany pivoted — claiming Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch “did not rule against him.” She based this assertion on the fact that the ruling in one of the two cases the Court weighed in on Thursday means the legal battle over Trump’s financial information will be sent back to the...
    NBC’s Peter Alexander asked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany why President Donald Trump continues to hire people that he later deems “dumb as a rock” or “incompetent.” Alexander asked the question in light of the president’s criticisms of a number of previous administration officials, specifically former National Security Adviser John Bolton, whose imminent book release has sparked a barrage of criticisms and insults from the president and members of the administration. (RELATED: Kayleigh McEnany: John Bolton Has Replaced James Comey As ‘Most Disliked Man In America’) WATCH: Alexander cut right to the chase by asking directly, “Let me ask if I can, Kayleigh, why does the president keep hiring people that are ‘dumb as a rock,’ ‘overrated,’ ‘way over their heads,’ ‘wacko’ and ‘incompetent’?” McEnany explained that Trump liked to hire people who would present opposing viewpoints. “I spoke to him this morning about the hiring of John Bolton in particular, and he said, ‘I like to counterbalance my own opinion with individuals that oftentimes have the very opposite opinion of my own,'” McEnany replied. “He likes the...
