The Chelsea boss is under the cosh after five defeats in eight Premier League games, amid mounting pressure over his future in the job. 3Frank Lampard is ready to fight his way out of Chelsea troubleCredit: Alamy Live News But the club’s 211-goal record scorer is digging into his experience as a player and says he can handle the heat. Lampard said: “I’m a fighter first and foremost. It’s how I managed to make a career out of the game as a player. “I’m manager of the club that I love. When I packed up I could’ve come out of football completely. “I love the fact that if there are tough times and you fight your way out of them — and I include the players as well — it’s the best feeling in football.

    CNN was eager to celebrate President Trump leaving the White House on Wednesday morning and the hyper-partisan network’s news anchors and executives couldn’t resist offering their opinions about the outgoing commander-in-chief. Jake Tapper, who is billed as a straight news anchor despite regularly offering his thoughts, declared that Trump was "disgraceful" as he prepared to Marine One and head to Joint Base Andrews. BIDEN, HARRIS POST-INAUGURATION MEDIA COVERAGE EXPECTED TO BE MUCH FRIENDLIER THAN TRUMP-ERA VITRIOL "As we watch President Trump’s helicopter, it’s interesting, he really is doing everything he can that’s wrong," Tapper said. "This a textbook case of how not to leave the presidency. Whine and cry, pretend that you didn’t win, incite your supporters, stage an insurrection. And on his way out the door, he pardons a bunch of his cronies." Tapper then rattled off some of the people Trump pardoned, including former campaign chairman Steve Bannon. "You think that he couldn’t get any more disgraceful, well, just give him a few hours," Tapper said. Once Trump exited the White House, Tapper’s colleague Dan Bash declared that he...

    Chris Rock says he didn't 'jump for joy' when Joe Biden won the election and is now urging the President-elect to create a 'Supreme Court of Science' so any future crisis or pandemic can be dealt with in a non-partisan way.  The comedian spoke out about the outcome of last month's election and slammed President Trump's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in a wide-ranging interview with Deadline on Wednesday. When asked about the current climate in the US given Biden had won the election, the 55-year-old said he felt optimistic but was wary that politics would just go back to normal.  'I don't know. When Biden won, I wasn't jumping for joy.

    He can't have my planes. The sore loser impeached squatter in the Oval Office is never going to concede the election, but he will leave. And he's going to douse everything with kerosene and light a match on his way out. That's by doing things like putting a completely unqualified loyalist and conspiracy theory proponents on the transition team for a department as critical as Defense. It also means further isolating the U.S. by withdrawing from critical arms control agreements. The U.S. officially withdrew from the Open Skies Treaty on Monday, a post-Soviet international agreement that allowed the participating countries—in particular the U.S. and Russia—to conduct surveillance flights over each other's countries. Not only is Trump officially withdrawing us from the treaty, he's getting rid of the U.S. Air Force planes that have been used for nearly 30 years to conduce the surveillance. If Biden seeks to reenter the agreement, he won't have the specially equipped planes with which to do it. A Trump administration official told The Wall Street Journal that the planes are being classified as "excess defense articles," ready to...
    The South Carolina senator asked the Georgia secretary of state to toss out legally cast ballots. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is trying to get Donald Trump's loss in Georgia overturned by asking the state's top election official to simply throw away legally cast ballots, the Washington Post reported Monday night. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said Graham asked whether he could simply invalidate every mail-in ballot in counties that had high rates of nonmatching signatures — a move that would have tossed out legally cast ballots as well. "It sure looked like he was wanting to go down that road," Raffensperger told the Post.
    Comedian-actor and Democratic activist Kumail Nanjiani is claiming that President Donald Trump is “going to kill as many people as he possibly can on his way out,” ignoring the progress the White House has made in finding a vaccine for the Chinese coronavirus. The star of HBO’s Silicon Valley tweeted the accusation in response to a Politico report in which Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested that the president’s continued electoral fight could harm the country’s coronavirus response. “Transitions are very important,” Fauci reportedly said, adding that it is critical to ensure a smooth “passing of the baton without stopping running.” Kumail Nanjiani tweeted: “He’s going to kill as many people as he possibly can on his way out.” He’s going to kill as many people as he possibly can on his way out. https://t.co/yiwrNYVBzs — Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 16, 2020 Kumail Nanjiani has previously blamed President Trump for the coutry’s COVID-19 deaths, claiming without evidence that “people are dying because he won’t face reality.” In reality, the Trump administration implemented Operation Warp Speed, which created a public-private partnership to fast-track...
    House Majority Whip James Clyburn insisted that 'voter suppression' is the only thing that could prevent Joe Biden from winning the presidency during a heated Fox News interview on Sunday.    The South Carolina Democrat, who is black, claimed that many black residents in his state are facing voter suppression with the election looming in less than two days during Fox News' Democracy 2020 Election Preview Special on Sunday. Clyburn said he is 'praying' for black supporters of President Donald Trump and suggested that most black voters will cast ballots for Biden.   'It's all about turnout at this point. I suspect that we'll find out in 48 hours how successful these suppression tactics have been. That is the one concern that I have,' he said.

    KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV can be beaten by Justin Gaethje - if the American keeps the champion off the ground, according to the Russian's former rival Gleison Tibau. The lightweight world title is on the line at UFC 254 when the pair meet in the octagon. 6Justin Gaethje could beat Khabib Nurmagomedov if he can keep the Russian off the canvasCredit: Getty Images - Getty Khabib will be desperate to maintain his unbeaten record in the clash on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. But Tibau reckons there is a way to end the 28-0 king's reign. The Brazilian, who pushed Khabib all the way in July 2012 but ultimately lost on a unanimous decision, believes the best way to get on top is not letting the Russian grapple on the canvas. Tibau told AG Fight: "It’s all about how well your style matches up with his. "He’s strong, he puts on an absurd amount of pressure and he has good wrestling. He’s been dominating everyone and never has a hard outing. "Our fight was pretty close, many think that I...
    When the Clinton’s left the White House in 2000, right wing AM radio—and supposedly mainstream media—ran stories claiming that various items, from antique furniture to formal silverware, went with them. All those stories were lies.  But as it becomes increasingly clear that Donald Trump is going to lose yugely, his supporters inside the White House are engaging in a desperate last minute quest to break everything they can on the way out the door. It’s not clear that they’ve yet made a grab for the portrait of George Washington or the Resolute Desk (though someone should definitely keep an eye on those items). What they are destroying at the moment is regulatory agencies, advisory boards, and the regulations that actually hold government, business, and daily lives together. A flurry of changes from from Trump cabinet members is underway to secure “Trump’s legacy.” Whih in this case means a trail of regulatory destruction and disarray, altering key provisions in ways that leave the nation less safe, less secure, more polluted, and less able to respond to corporate criminals. As The New York Times reports,...
    JOE Biden has hinted he won't accept defeat at the Presidential Elections, saying that only way he would lose is through vote tampering. Democratic nominee Biden is so confident he will win the Presidential election that he believes he will only lose to Donald Trump through "chicanery". ⚠️ Follow our US election 2020 live blog for the latest news & updates 4Joe Biden is so confident he will win the Presidency that he said he will only lose through election tamperingCredit: AP:Associated Press Biden encouraged potential voters at a campaign stop in Eerie, located in the must-win battleground of Pennsylvania, telling them "make sure to vote because the only way we lose this is by the chicanery going on relative to polling places."

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said on Saturday "the only way" he could lose to President Donald Trump was through "chicanery' at poling places. 'Here's the deal guys, you've gotta make sure you go out and vote, because the only way we lose this is by the chicanery going on relative to polling places,' Biden said on Saturday at a campaign event in Erie, Pennsylvania. Biden accused trump of 'trying to put people in polling places. The same guys you saw standing, blocking people's way in Virginia with banners and rifles slung across their shoulders.' He appeared to be referring to a pro-Trump demonstration at an early in-person polling site in Fairfax, Virginia on September 19. Photos and video from the event do not show anyone in the group openly carrying a firearm.
    DONALD Trump insisted on Friday that the only way he can lose the 2020 presidential election is if he is "cheated."

"I want a smooth, beautiful transition, but... this is a disaster waiting to happen - and the only hope we have, really, other than going through a long litigation in the end after its over - because we're going to win," Trump said. “We’re not going to lose this except if they cheat. Our country is at stake and it's true.”  As he admitted that a "very friendly transition" is desired,...
    Heather Digby Parton September 14, 2020 1:35PM (UTC) Donald Trump recently held his first indoor rally since the super-spreader event in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June. The campaign sent out a snotty statement to justify this: If you can join tens of thousands of people protesting in the streets, gamble in a casino, or burn down small businesses in riots, you can gather peacefully under the 1st Amendment to hear from the President of the United States. The protests take place outdoors with people moving about mostly wearing masks. The casinos hand out masks and adhere to social distancing guidelines — and have the most advanced air ventilation systems in the nation. Putting several thousand people indoors, telling them that those who wear masks have psychiatric issues and encouraging them to stand closely together, screaming and cheering for hours, is something else again. Considering the age and evident comorbidities of many of Trump's most enthusiastic supporters, some will get sick and perhaps die. Who knows how many others they will spread it to? : It seems counterintuitive that you would want to kill your own voters but it's clear...
    Dear Moneyist, I am a 65-year-old woman married to a great guy for decades. We have no children. He earns all the money and handles all our finances. During my entire life I have not been a good money manager. I love to spend money and have a head-in-the-sand approach to money problems. Before our marriage, I bounced checks often. My fear is that I will outlive my husband, and then have no one to check my spending impulses. We owe less than $200,000 on our home which is valued at over $2.5 million. We have another $1.2 million in retirement funds. He has a $1 million life-insurance policy. We intend to retire within 3 years, sell this home, and relocate within California to a smaller home costing around $450,000. So, should he predecease me, I will have possibly a huge sum of money at my disposal. At the moment, we have a family trust and living wills. Is there something we could set up to make sure I don’t spend myself into the poor house?...
    Shortly after the infamous Billy Bush tape became public in October 2016, the story goes, officials with the Republican National Committee approached Donald Trump to inform him of a sobering reality: He would not become president.  In reality, recalled Sean Spicer, the then-communications director for the RNC, things went a bit differently. Yes, then-RNC Chairman Reince Priebus told Trump he believed that, as things stood, he would lose to Hillary Clinton. But they didn’t declare the door closed. Instead, they presented slides on the difficult path forward along with a synopsis of what Trump would have to do to change his fortunes.   On that list was a suggestion completely at odds with Trump’s id. He needed to lay low.

Of course, he says SAN FRANCISCO – What chances would you give this player at this week’s 102nd edition of the PGA Championship? © Provided by Golfweek He’s played one tournament in nearly six months. In his past two starts, he’s finished dead last and tied for 40th three weeks ago in the Memorial, his first start since February. In four of his past five rounds on the PGA Tour, he’s posted 76, 76, 77 and 76. His surgically repaired back has given him fits this year, to the point of bypassing a couple starts, and the forecast for the City by the Bay points to temperatures from the low 50s to the upper 60s – not exactly ideal for warming up a balky back. And the rough is thick, the fairways thin and the marine layer heavy at TPC Harding Park. So, Tiger Woods, can you win your fifth Wanamaker Trophy this week? “Of course,”...
    Attorney General Bill Barr said he is not aware of any way a U.S. president could contest the result of an election which he clearly lost during his Tuesday testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. Barr’s statement came in response to a question from Democratic Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond regarding President Donald Trump’s repeated assertions that mass mail-in voting could cause a “rigged” election. Though Barr agreed with the president that resorting to mass mail-in voting would make election fraud more likely, he rebuffed the possibility that Trump could challenge the clear result of an election. “I also saw on TV that the president said he’s not sure that he’ll accept the election results. Can a president just protest because he lost an election?” Richmond asked. “Protest in what sense?” Barr replied. “Well, can he contest an election just because he simply loses?” Richmond says. Barr mentioned that the 2000 election between former President George W. Bush and then-Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore as a potential example of a president contesting an election. Richmond argued that instance was unique...
    He has been the old Sinatra song, all of it, a jumble of personas and personalities, going all the way back to the first day he showed up one week shy of five years ago. He’s been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king — seizing New York by the lapels, carrying the Mets through the summer of 2015, a wonder in bright neon yellow. He’s been up. And down. And over. And out. Mostly, that’s what Mets fans wanted the past couple of years: they wanted Yoenis Cespedes out. Out of their hair. Out from under a contract that he’ll never be able to live up to, no matter how many discounts, self-inflicted and otherwise, are subtracted from it. A walking contradiction: erstwhile messiah, erstwhile pariah. And maybe he’ll spend the final 59 games of this season bouncing back and forth between both again. It’s actually where the smart money sits. But in Game 1 of this 60-game dash, there was no question where Cespedes sits. In Game 1, with one swing...
    VP Joe Biden made remarks, with President Barack Obama by his side, before the signing of the 21st Century Cures Act, in the South Court Auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building of the White House in Washington, DC. on December 13, 2016.Cheriss May | NurPhoto | Getty Images Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden teams up with his old boss, former President Barack Obama in a new video that draws a sharp contrast between President Donald Trump's approach to voters and Biden's style. Biden and Obama met at Obama's Washington, D.C., office. After sitting down across the room from one another, Biden asks Obama whether he could imagine standing up as president and saying, "It's not my responsibility, I take no responsibility," as Trump has previously done. "Those words didn't come out of our mouths when we were in office," Obama says in the video clip from the Biden campaign. The full-length video will be released Thursday.  Biden criticizes Trump for "his inability to get a sense of what people are going through."  "He just can't relate in any way,"...
    The Justice Department's attempt to block the release of John Bolton's tell-all book has been denied.  Judge Royce Lamberth denied the request to block the sale of the former national security adviser's memoir, 'The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir' in a ruling Saturday.   Lamberth, a Reagan appointee, heard arguments Friday over Zoom from Bolton's lawyer Charles Cooper and Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Morrell, representing the government.  This came after the Trump administration sued Bolton on Tuesday in order to postpone the release of his book because of concerns that classified information could be exposed The book was leaked to the media the next day.  It contains a number of explosive claims about President Trump, including that he asked China for help with his re-election bid - a move similar to how Trump interacted with Ukraine, which led to him being impeached.   The Justice Department's attempt to block the release of John Bolton's (left) tell-all book has been denied.
