    A group of England fans claim they outrageously ended up at the palace of a sheikh where they played with a lion cub at the World Cup. The men, who have travelled to the Middle East to cheer on England, say a chance meeting with 'one of the Sheikh's sons' led to a night wild night before the tournament in Qatar had even begun. Alex Sullivan said the group was 'on the hunt for some beers' when they were invited back to the house of a local Qatari man earlier this week. He claimed that when they were there the owner showed them 'monkeys, exotic birds and lions'. Videos posted online show the group, who were wearing shorts and England shirts, hanging out with a men dressed in thobes, the traditional Qatari garb. In the footage the men can be seen playing with a lion cub, walking around a spacious house with locals, and sitting in a car as it speeds down the highway. Alex Sullivan posted video showing himself playing with a lion cub, claiming it was at the...

    Republican Senate candidate Don Bolduc Wednesday doubled down on claims about schools giving litter trays to students who identify as cats - even though it is based on an urban myth that has been debunked.  Bolduc, a retired Army brigadier general who is challenging Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire, shared the hoax at a weekend event. Fact checkers say the bogus claim is based on reports that some schools have stocked up on litter trays in case children are locked for hours inside classrooms during an active shooter event. When Bolduc was challenged about his claim on Wednesday he took care not to say that it was true. Instead he said it was what he had been told. 'So what I was talking about is all the craziness going on in our schools. And this is just one of them,' he told NBC News. 'And I had a parent and a student in that audience who came up to me and told me all about it. I've had that all across the state.  'So I'm only articulating what...
    "I crafted a snarky and venomous QT that I was going to attach to this tweet, but, out of respect for the senator’s position as Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I will, instead, politely suggest that he might enjoy studying more of the nuances of First Amendment doctrine," Millhiser said. Others responded: "We simply must start electing people with at least a minimal level of [civic] literacy. This is not that. Embarrassingly not that," First Amendment lawyer Ari Cohn said. "Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee with a *very* questionable statement," legal reporter Chris Geidner, who is also a lawyer, responded. "I mean it very much does, in a constitutional sense," MSNBC host Chris Hayes retorted. "It’s a scary thing that the most powerful people in our government do not understand the basics of the laws they uphold. The entire point of the First Amendment is that it protects the speech you don’t like. It does not only apply when you’re vibing with it," Reason editor Billy Binion responded. "One day after a major story from @lhfang and...
    Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake claimed on Wednesday that if Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy were still alive, they’d be Republicans of the Make American Great Again variety. “If MLK, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. were alive today, if JFK were alive today, if our Founding Fathers were alive today, they would be America-first Republicans,” Lake said at an event. King’s daughter Bernice King responded by politely challenging Lake’s assertion on Twitter, calling it “dismissive” of his “seminal work and beliefs.” On Friday, CNN commentator S.E. Cupp burst out laughing upon hearing Lake’s remarks. “I mean, I guess I don’t need to ask for your reaction because you’re laughing through it,” Victor Blackwell told Cupp. “What do you think?” “You can say anything and not back it up,” she replied. “You can claim these icons of the left as the new leaders of the far right, I guess just because. But I don’t even want to waste time trying to dissect how dumb that is. It’s about as dumb as the idea in MAGA world that...
    The Buccaneers beat the Falcons Sunday after a highly contentious roughing the passer call on Tom Brady, and Twitter was rife with criticism for the decision when it was made in the fourth quarter. Brady and Tampa Bay led the Falcons 21-15 with just over three minutes remaining when he was sacked by Grady Jarrett for a loss of 10 yards on third down. The play would have forced Tampa Bay to punt, and would have given the ball back to Atlanta with a chance to take the lead with a touchdown.

    Meghan Markle fans have divided the internet after claiming the Duchess of Sussex was the only member of the Royal Family who wept at Queen Elizabeth's funeral - when others were clearly in tears.  Prince Harry's wife was seen wiping away a tear during the moving ceremony at Westminster Abbey on Monday, with a trail of her tears clearly showing on her cheek. The image of the moment was posted on Twitter with the caption; 'Meghan being the only one who cried for the Queen…. Sums up everything really.'

    The speech Biden gave earlier this month, in which the president characterized "MAGA" and Trump supporters as anti-American "semi-fascists" who "put their own pursuit of power above all else," only fueled those accusations. "I think [that's] what’s ultimately driving his politics,” said Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). “If you own a gun, display the flag and voted for Trump, the president’s going to call you an extremist, and it appears the FBI is going to use the numbers to satisfy that narrative that the president laid out." The FBI has issued a statement, unequivocally denying that the agency is targeting Republicans or supporters of the former president. "The FBI aggressively investigates threats posed by domestic violent extremists,” an FBI spokesperson said. “We do not investigate ideology, and we do not investigate particular cases based on the political views of the individuals involved. The FBI will continue to pursue threats or acts of violence, regardless of the underlying motivation or sociopolitical goal."
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly filming an 'at-home docuseries' for Netflix as part of their $100 million streaming deal - and are said to have even welcomed cameras into their $14 million Montecito mansion to capture content for the candid show, which will doubt raise fresh fears within the monarchy about what other bombshells the couple might air about the royals.  According to Page Six, the Sussexes have been working with production crews on an 'at-home with the Duke and Duchess-style' show for several months now, which the streaming giant allegedly hopes to release at the end of the year in order to coincide with the publication of Prince Harry's upcoming memoir.  However, sources suggest that the Sussexes are angling for the docuseries to be held over until next year.  'The timing is still being discussed, things are up in the air,' a 'producer in the know' said. News of the couple's alleged docuseries will undoubtedly spark major concerns behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace over what allegations they might air about the royal family while in front...
    Good morning, Chicago. Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s high-profile effort to hand out 50,000 gas cards and 100,000 CTA transit fare cards narrowly cleared an important City Council hurdle Wednesday even as aldermen expressed concerns the initiative was more about politics than helping citizens. “I’ve heard from some constituents who’ve said they feel this is the mayor trying to prove that she has the biggest gas hose,” said Northwest Side Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, 35th. Lightfoot’s plan, dubbed “Chicago Moves,” came just weeks after onetime political supporter and now potential mayoral opponent Willie Wilson used his own money to buy more than $1 million in free gas at Chicago stations in March as prices at the pump have soared. Here are the stations in and around Chicago participating in Wilson’s latest giveaway Saturday, one that now comes with thorny questions about providing handouts to potential voters. And in Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin tried to claim victory in Mariupol on Thursday, even as he ordered his troops not to storm the last pocket of Ukrainian resistance. Meanwhile, as thousands of tanks and troops...
    FINANCING a new car can be tricky if you have a poor credit history, and it's not unusual to need a co-signer on a lease to guarantee the loan. But a former car salesman has warned people that they may be putting their own finances at risk if they volunteer to be a co-signer for a family member. 3Former car salesman Deshone the Auto Advisor offers advice from his days working at Mercedes and GMCredit: Instagram/deshonetheautoadvisor 3Financing a new car can be tricky if you have a poor credit historyCredit: Getty TikToker Deshone the Auto Advisor worked in sales for both Mercedes and GM, and gives advice to followers online. And Deshone warned people never to volunteer as a cosigner if they cannot afford to cover all of the payments themselves. A co-signer can help someone with poor credit get a loan - but they have to promise to make any lease payments that the leasee cannot make. But the loan will also appear on a credit report for the co-signer as well, and if the co-signer cannot afford to...
    PLANNING for retirement takes time and strategy. There are a number of different approaches you can take to ensure your retirement is filled with leisure and is hassle-free. 1Calculating your Social Security break-even age guarantees a stress-free retirement Social Security is based on your highest 35 years of earnings and differs depending on those and when you choose to start receiving benefits. Typically, the benefits are meant to replace about 40% of their pre-retirement income. Many decide to take their Social Security benefits as 62 even though the amount reduces significantly with early withdrawal. While others wait until their full retirement age, 70, as their benefit amount increases substantially.

    What did PolitiFact say? In a Monday column, PolitiFact parachuted in to assess Bartiromo's claim that the U.S. doubled oil imports from Russia as "mostly false." The fact-checker suggested that when crude oil imports and refined products imports such as gasoline and kerosene are combined, it shows the year-over-year increase to be 28%, not 50%. But that's not how oil imports are typically categorized. Normally, oil imports and energy imports — which include refined products — are categorized separately. The U.S. Energy Information Administration, which PolitiFact cites multiple times, shows as much by breaking down crude oil imports in a separate chart. A spokesperson for Bartiromo evidently explained this to PolitiFact, resulting in the fact-checker admitting, "The U.S. more than doubled its crude oil imports from Russia, to about 208,000 barrels a day in the first 11 months of 2021, from 76,000 barrels a day in 2020." Amazingly, that wasn't enough for the fact-checker to change its assessment, even while it openly admitted that Bartiromo's specific claim was accurate. "But Bartiromo’s broader point was about the extent of U.S. reliance...
    GOP leader Kevin McCarthy vowed to investigate a finding from Special Counsel Robert Durham that Hillary Clinton was linked to the origin of the Russia collusion probe if Republicans take back the House in November.   Hillary Clinton refused to answer questions about allegations that her allies spied on the Trump campaign as the controversy continued to engulf her Tuesday.  'Special Counsel John Durham's continued investigation into the Russia hoax is essential to getting to the truth and protecting our democracy, and because he has already uncovered several troubling findings, it's clear that Congress must exercise its oversight responsibilities as well,' McCarthy said in a statement to Fox News on Tuesday.  He said that if Republicans win the majority in November, they will look into whether 'federal funds were used, whether federal office-holders abused their power, and investigate other disturbing elements of this spying scheme to ensure nothing like it ever happens again.'  Between a historical trend where the party in the White House suffers losses in the midterms and President Biden's low poll numbers, Republicans' chances to take back the House...

    The pandemic undoubtedly put a dampener on the sex lives of singletons - with millions not able to date casually due to Covid restrictions. But for some lockdown was a welcome break from 'hook-up culture' leading to a surge in the number of young people practicing celibacy. Gen Z and millennials are less sexually active now than young people were 20 years ago, with celibacy among 25 to 34-year-olds doubling since 2002, according to a recent study. And many of those who practice celibacy are sharing the 'benefits' on TikTok - with sexless 20-somethings revealing they haven't been intimate in years - claiming it gives them a 'clearer mind' 'spiritual growth' and rids them of 'soul ties'.  These videos aren't related to evangelicalism - or any religious preaching. In fact, scrolling on the #celibacytok and #celibacy - which both have millions of views - sees clips full of feminist women sharing how they have decided to not 'let a man invade their peace'.  Gen Z and millennials are less sexually active now than young people were 20 years ago, with...
    Chinese officials confronted with President Joe Biden’s decision to boycott the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics are managing the snub by insisting that the Americans were “not even being invited” to the Games. “According to Olympic rules, officials are invited by their respective National Olympic Committee to attend the Olympic Games,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian maintained Tuesday. “Despite not even being invited, the U.S. side linked its officials’ attendance with the so-called human rights issues in Xinjiang, going down the wrong path further by distorting facts while cheating themselves, as well as others.” EXPERTS FEAR PUTIN 'PREPARING CITIZENS FOR WAR' AGAINST UKRAINE That statement punctuated a line of commentary from outside the foreign ministry to the effect that Chinese Communist officials decided they had little interest in hosting a well-attended international event. Yet Chinese Communist officials have expressed outrage at any high-profile finding that Beijing has imposed a policy of genocide against Uyghur Muslims, particularly as that criticism spurred opposition to the Beijing Olympics. “The Chinese government’s systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom and other human...
    Fox News reported on widespread conservative outrage over a comment that President Joe Biden made about the late baseball legend Satchel Paige, but refused to make the false claim that sparked the outrage. Conservatives spent the better part of Thursday trying to spread the false claim that Biden referred to Paige as “The great negro at the time,” when in fact, Biden was explicitly referring to Negro League baseball. What actually happened is that the president was wishing Amb. Donald Blinken a happy birthday during his Veterans Day speech, and injected one of his favorite stories: a roundabout way of saying that you’re only as old as you feel. Here’s the passage in question: I’ve adopted the attitude of the great Negro — at the time, pitcher in the Negro Leagues — went on to become a great pitcher in the pros — in the Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige. While blue-check conservatives continued to falsely insist that Biden was referring to Paige — despite their own video clips belying that notion — Fox News walked a...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki argued that President Joe Biden did take a border trip - pointing to a 2008 campaign drive-by - while also saying the president doesn't need a 'photo-op' to understand the migrant crisis during Friday's briefing.  Psaki was being prodded by Fox News Channel's Peter Doocy about a claim Biden made at Thursday night's CNN town hall - that he had 'been there before' and that he knew it 'well.'   'Well, Peter, as you may have seen, there's been reporting that he did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008,' Psaki said. 'And he is certainly familiar with the fact ... that in El Paso the border goes right through the center of town.'   White House press secretary Jen Psaki argued that President Joe Biden did take a border trip - pointing to a 2008 campaign drive-by - while also saying the president doesn't need a 'photo-op' to understand the migrant crisis during Friday's briefing
    English-speaking viewers tuning into new Netflix hit Squid Games may not understand the full story because the 'botched subtitles' completely change the show's meaning, Korean-speaking fans have claimed. Korean-made Squid Game, which is the most streamed show in the US and in the UK, features grisly scenes of characters being shot in the head and organ harvesting, in the latest example of shock-tactic programming from the streaming giant.  It has become a cult hit with fans of the slasher horror genre who have dubbed the nine-part series 'Saw meets the Hunger Games' and revelled in scenes of torture and mass murder, but it seems that the show could be even more shocking, depending on what language you're watching in.   New York-based comedian and Korean speaker Youngmi Mayer has taken to Twitter to reveal how some of the the subtitles in English are 'so bad' that the original meaning is often lost completely, while some sweary characters are 'sanitised', with the phrase 'S***. It’s a sausage fest', disppearing from some translations.  Fellow viewers have noticed a difference between the English subtitles...
    Away from the rigours of public life, cocooned by the gently undulating Cairngorms in Balmoral, the Queen ought to be enjoying a well-earned rest from what, even by the standards of her extraordinary life, has been a very difficult year. As if losing the Duke of Edinburgh, her companion and trusted adviser through seven decades, wasn't enough of a blow, she has had to endure the toxic revenge attacks of her grandson, Prince Harry, against his own family – and the subsequent fallout. The poor woman must sometimes feel like she's presiding over a creche full of psychopathic toddlers. The stress on someone of her age is intolerable. If they weren't all such self-obsessed ingrates they might feel ashamed of themselves for putting her through it. But there's not much chance of that. The worst part is that the biggest man-baby of them all is, of course, her favourite son, Prince Andrew.  Prince Andrew's response to the case of Victoria Giuffre (both pictured), who is suing him in an American civil court for rape and sexual abuse, has been...
    Out of allies, out of excuses, and out of time. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not the sort of person to resign just because he did horrible things and everybody now knows about it. He's the sort of person who believes that he can bully his way through anything, whether it be pandemic scandals or harassment scandals. That means we're all in for weeks of having to hear him attack anyone and everyone in an attempt to scurry out from an investigation that called 179 witnesses (!) as it documented years of sexual harassment from a man whose defense has centered around a claim that he's just a hugging, groping sort of guy and it's too bad that nearly a dozen different women couldn't understand that reaching under a woman's blouse to grope her breast is just something he does to "put people at ease." Cuomo is, as his most cynical critics presumed he would, attempting to dig in despite the New York legislature now moving swiftly to begin impeachment proceedings against him. On Sunday, top Cuomo aide Melissa...
    Meghan Markle's 40th birthday will see the start of her creating a 'business empire' and look to take Oprah Winfrey's crown as queen of Hollywood, PR gurus have claimed.  The Duchess of Sussex today unveiled her latest initiative - a campaign branded '40x40' to help women back into work - during a very woke video birthday message shared on the Archewell website. Filmed in the study of her and Prince Harry's £11million Montecito mansion, it featured A-list actress Melissa McCarthy and a comedy cameo by Prince Harry.  Talent manager Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE, who worked with the couple's friend Elton John along with a whole host of other A-list stars, said Meghan's 40th birthday will see the start of her creating an 'empire'.

    BACHELORETTE fans slammed Katie Thurston for giving Greg Grippo a SECOND one-on-one date and claimed he appears to “not even like her.”  When the frontrunner heard his name on the date card, he had a sad reaction on his face despite saying he was “ecstatic” to spend more time with the ABC lead.  2Katie Thurston was slammed for giving Greg Grippo his SECOND one-on-oneCredit: ABC 2Greg appeared sad - though claimed to be 'ecstatic' - when he was given the dateCredit: ABC The move comes as an extra sting to other contestants in the house - including Mike P. and Brendan - who have not received a single one-on-one date yet.  “Greg, let’s see if this can really work.

    New York (CNN Business)Fox News host Tucker Carlson made an explosive claim on his show Monday night: That he had learned through a whistleblower that the National Security Agency is spying on him and planning to leak his communications in a bid to take him off the air."The Biden administration is spying on us," Carlson declared to millions of Fox's viewers. "We have confirmed that."But Carlson's own colleagues don't appear to be buying what he is selling.Barring an unusual circumstance, if a reputable news organization had confirmed that the NSA — or any arm of the US government — was spying on one of its top employees, it would be a story of significant consequence.When The Washington Post, CNN, and The New York Times recently learned that the Trump Justice Department had seized the records of its reporters, the revelation led to weeks of coverage and a commitment from the Biden administration to end such practices.Read MoreCarlson not only alleged that the NSA was spying on him, but that it was conspiring to take him off of the air and...
    Furious boxing fans have accused Floyd Mayweather of throwing his fight with Logan Paul after footage of the legendary boxer appearing to hold up his opponent - rather than letting him slump to the canvas - emerged. Mayweather dominated the contest at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami but was surprisingly unable to stop Paul, with the rookie surviving the full eight rounds of their exhibition bout.  But fight fans - who stumped up £17 each to watch the fight in the UK- have now hit out at Mayweather. They claim the undefeated 44-year-old deliberately stopped Paul from collapsing in order to extend the fight - despite landing a flurry of punches which looked to have ended the YouTuber's challenge. The clip during the fight shows an exhausted Paul stepping back towards the ropes, before the social media sensation looked to thrust out a heavy right hand. Mayweather was able to evade the hook with ease and responded with a blow of his own, crashing into Paul's head. The 26-year-old then slumped forward towards 'Money', who promptly unleashed an uppercut.  ...
    Joe Raedle/Getty Former President Donald Trump has reportedly told people around him that he is expecting to be reinstated as President in August. This stunning bit of news comes from New York Times’s award-winning reporter Maggie Haberman and comes after a weekend in which a number of Trump’s most notable “stolen election” toadies have amplified narratives of coups and an unconstitutional return to the White House. This absurd and obvious bit of delusion has received pushback from predictable political precincts. What stands out, however, is that some conservative thought leaders who have been fairly muted in criticizing Trump’s baseless stolen election conspiracies are now vocally saying that this is a bridge too far. And yes, a number of Republican thought leaders who can easily be identified as “Never Trumpers” also chimed in, which are all collected below for your entertainment and enlightenment purposes. Fox News contributor Byron York is the most surprising voice of dissent here, as he clearly suggested that Trump’s continued public statements like this will come with an increased “number of Republicans who say they are ready...

    Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court on Thursday revived a case of a woman in New Mexico who argued she should be able to bring a claim of excessive force against police officers who shot her, even if she was not immediately apprehended at the scene.In a 5-3 majority opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the high court wiped away a lower court opinion that went against the woman, Roxanne Torres, and asked the lower court to take another look at whether her claim can go forward under the Constitution's Fourth Amendment that bars unreasonable search and seizure.Roberts wrote that the "application of physical force with the intent to restrain" is a seizure, even if the person "does not submit and is not subdued."He said that the holding is the "first step" in the analysis to see if the Fourth Amendment was violated and sent the case back to the lower court to determine if the police officer's actions in the case were reasonable under the Constitution.Justice Neil Gorsuch filed a dissenting opinion that was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and...
    Anthony Fauci warned state leaders against the “risky business” of eliminating public health measures, reiterating concerns that the country could see a further increase in cases if the guard is lowered during an interview on the program “Meet The Press.” from MSNBC. Miami World / Telemundo 51 About a dozen states have recently revoked coronavirus-related restrictions, including mask mandates or limits for indoor gatherings. But Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that even when things are going “in the right direction,” the number of cases is still too high to declare “victory” by lowering restrictions. “Even though the descent was steep, it is absolutely necessary to avoid the temptation to say; “Oh, everything is going great,” he told “Meet the Press.”“Don’t shoot the ball at the five-yard line. Wait until he reaches the end zone. We’re not in the end zone yet. “ There have been more than 29 million coronavirus cases in the United States and more than 535,000 deaths attributed to the virus, according to the NBC News analysis. But the...
    Epic Games on Wednesday expanded its worldwide legal fight against the dominant mobile app store operators with a new legal claim against Google in Australia. The claim accuses Google of “anti-competitive conduct breaches the Australian Consumer Law” and also accuses the search giant of violating the country’s Competition and Consumer Act of 2010. The legal claim follows a similar action against Apple in Australia filed last November, and Epic’s legal fight against app stores now spans the European Union, the UK, and the US in addition to Australia. The main thrust of the complaint is one we’ve heard before — that it’s due time Apple and Google allow app makers to bypass the 30 percent cut through either alternative app stores or alternative in-app payment systems — and it’s now a common rallying cry for the growing number of companies, app developers, and regulators taking on Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store. “We believe consumers have the right to install apps from sources of their choosing.” Epic says Google “abuses its control over the Android...
    Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden has faced criticism, including from some Democratic lawmakers, for deciding not to impose direct sanctions on Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia for what US intelligence has concluded was his central role in the 2018 killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a permanent resident of the US. Biden's administration imposed visa restrictions on 76 Saudi individuals the administration says have been involved in threatening dissidents overseas, but the list did not include the crown prince. Defending the omission of bin Salman on Sunday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on CNN that there are "more effective ways to make sure this doesn't happen again" while also leaving "room to work with the Saudis" on areas where there is mutual agreement and a US national interest. Psaki said Biden has been clear that he is going to "recalibrate" the US-Saudi relationship, including by ending support for the Saudi war in Yemen. That's all fair enough. But Psaki also made another assertion -- a claim that Biden's decision to avoid direct sanctions on bin Salman followed...
    An NYPD veteran and his serving cop son have been accused of being part of a cruel plot to swindle $15million from the estate of dying New York lawyer Burt Pugach, according to court filings obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com. Pugach became infamous in the 1950s for hiring goons to blind his lover before marrying her when he got out of prison 14 years later. The 93-year-old's death on Christmas Eve has sparked fresh intrigue amid claims he was conned into bequeathing his fortune to Shamin 'Sheila' Frawley, a caregiver and 'girlfriend' 41 years his junior, after he suffered a stroke. A group of his former friends have filed a lawsuit in New York City Supreme Court arguing that Frawley, 52 - who is married -  manipulated Pugach into changing his will then withdrew food until he starved to death. Frawley has insisted her marriage to William (pictured together in 2011) was over by the time she became Pugach's girlfriend and that the pair were a 'monogamist' couple  Shamin 'Sheila' Frawley, 52, - who is married - claims she...
    The White House continued to try to disassociate President Joe Biden from the impeachment trial of his predecessor, saying Biden't won't weigh in on whether the procedure is even legitimate and won't tune in for much of it. 'He will not spend too much time watching the proceedings at any time over the course of this week,' White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Monday when asked whether Biden would tune in.   'He will remain closely in touch with Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi, Leader [Charles] Schumer – a range of officials on the Hill about his plan, and that's exactly what they want to do is to remain focused on that,' she said. On a day when House Democratic impeachment managers and Trump's legal team were trading accusations in filings – with Trump's team calling the process 'political theater' – Psaki repeatedly steered questions about impeachment to the coronavirus at her Monday press briefing. President Joe Biden 'will not spend too much time watching the proceedings,' White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said of the upcoming impeachment trial set to...
    If you bought a tuna sandwich from a Subway restaurant recently, chances are you may have eaten something that was ‘made from anything but tuna,’ two Bay Area customers allege. Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin of Alameda County filed a lawsuit in San Francisco federal court last week accusing the American fast food restaurant franchise of misrepresenting its tuna sandwich. The plaintiffs claim that they performed independent lab tests of samples of tuna taken from several Subway locations in California. The tests prove that the ‘tuna’ is actually a ‘mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by [Subway] to imitate the appearance of tuna,’ according to the complaint. The complaint does not specify what the lab tests revealed or what the tuna is actually made of. Subway has denied the claims, telling DailyMail.com  that the tuna is real and from fish caught in the wild. A Subway representative told DailyMail.com: ‘These claims are meritless.’ Two Subway customers from Alameda County, California are suing the popular fast food restaurant chain because they claim...
    Locals in Majorca have admitted they were bewildered by Hilaria Baldwin's decision to fake her Spanish past. The 36-year-old wife of Alec Baldwin was forced to confess in a rambling Instagram post she had been born in Boston and not the island of Majorca despite previously claiming to have come to America aged only 19. The influencer was also ridiculed after it emerged her mother Kathryn Hayward, who she has long described as Spanish, is in fact a fourth-generation Massachusetts resident. Spain's leading newspapers have seized on Hilaria's bizarre Spanish ancestry claims, with right-wing ABC describing them as a 'hoax' and Catalan daily La Vanguardia referencing her admission that her real name is Hillary by saying: 'Alec Baldwin's wife accused of lying about her Spanish origin and her name.' Majorcan acquaintances of the family of the Boston-born Mom Brain podcast host told DailyMail.com Tuesday that they had never met the mom-of-five. Internet sleuths were quick to uncover details about Hilaria's parents, Dr Kathryn Hayward and David Thomas, pictured, who worked in the U.S. for years before retiring to Majorca...

    (CNN)White House staffers at all levels are plotting their departures as a growing number of aides to President Donald Trump are abandoning his quest to overturn the 2020 election results -- some in frustration with the building they are leaving behind.Multiple sources inside and outside the White House cited a variety of reasons for the exodus already underway, ranging from the urgent need for employment to a palpable disgust with Trump's ill-fated election challenges. One source familiar with the situation said Trump's refusal to accept defeat has unnerved some staffers who worry the President is tarnishing his own legacy and, more critically, eroding voters' faith in US elections. Others have said they understood the odds were high that they'd need to find new jobs soon, and they prepared to make career moves regardless of how the President reacted to defeat. A separate senior administration official described a "toxic" work environment among the dwindling number of West Wing staffers. While the Trump White House was never the model of a functional workplace, the lack of direction and sense of defeat during...
    Statisticians say intelligent life on other planets is 'exceptionally rare', and that human-like civilisations are unlikely to exist away from Earth.  In a new paper, Oxford researchers theorise that, for life to have evolved the same way elsewhere in the universe, it would have taken longer than the whole of Earth's projected lifespan.  Evolution on Earth from the Big Bang up until the current day has involved a series of what they call 'evolutionary transitions' that were helped by chance.  These include the emergence of primitive life from non-living matter (known as abiogenesis) and eukaryotic life (with cells that have a nucleus enclosed), the evolution of sexual reproduction, multicellularity, and intelligence itself.    If intelligent life does exist on other planets, it would have needed to go through comparable evolutionary transitions – and to say that life does exist on other planets carries a burden of proof that science has not yet provided.    Intelligent life in the Universe is exceptionally rare, assuming that intelligent life elsewhere requires analogous evolutionary transitions, scientist say. Pictured, an artists's impression of an Earth-like planet...
    Kristin Fisher and Dana Perino take a break to deliver actual news. Fox News finds itself in the interesting place of trying to perform a 24-hours-a-day paradox. During the day time, they’re pretending to be a normal, fact-driven news network, while during primetime and into the wee hours, they are the fact-free, rhetorically incendiary bigotry factory we have come to expect for the last couple of decades. Why they’re doing this is probably a mixture of reasons. One is that Rupert Murdoch likely does not like Donald Trump and wants to separate his American news interest from Trump and the potential legal fallout that will be coming about in the next few years. Another reason is that with the advent of OANN and other ultra-right-wing fake news spaces, Fox sees the need to distinguish its version of bogus ultra-conservative news vomit from the rest of the pack. Whatever the reason, during Thursday’s daytime hours, the Fox News machine decided to report honestly on what is arguably one of the most frighteningly reality-free press conferences we have seen during the Trump administration.

    General Services Administrator Emily Murphy feels like she's in a no-win situation as she deals with death threats coming in from her refusal to certify the presidential election. Murphy's refusal to 'ascertain' a winner in the contest between President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden means Biden's transition team cannot speak to federal agencies about the transfer of power or have access to federal funds. Trump has refused to concede the contest, has tweeted multiple times he's the 'winner' and has launched a series of lawsuits in battleground states. But most of the lawsuits have gone no where, his campaign has turned up no evidence of major voter fraud, and Biden has won 306 electoral votes - more than enough to take the presidency.  General Services Administrator Emily Murphy Democrats on Capitol Hill and the Biden campaign have expressed their fury and frustration with Murphy, a 47-year-old lawyer and longtime government employee, who is the solo sign off on the transition process starting. Her friends and allies told CNN she never thought she would be in such a situation.   ...
    TEARY viewers have hailed an alternative to John Lewis’ Christmas advert as better than the original, as they called for it to be shown on TV.  As the big name brands battle it out to be crowned the most memorable commercial this year, a humble offering from a mattress company is causing a stir online.  6An alternative to John Lewis' Christmas advert is pulling at people's heart strings Credit: Nimbus Beds Nimbus released their festive ad on YouTube, and it’s already racked up more than 25,000 views.

    The 11th commandment, made famous by President Ronald Reagan states “thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican.” Well, former Senator Rick Santorum through that axiom out the window, following President Donald Trump’s bizarre White House Press Briefing in which he alleged a corrupt American election that increasingly looks posed to lose. Santorum served in the U.S. Congress representing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the focus of specious legal claims on behalf of the Trump Campaign who have claimed a vast conspiracy of voter fraud without presenting any evidence. “There may be fraud,” Santorum hedged a bit, adding  “We don’t know that right now.” But the broader point  he made was to call out President Trump for claiming fraud “without any evidence is dangerous.” Santorum’s comments matched the funeral tone on the CNN panel discussion that seem both gobsmacked and saddened by President Trump’s active undermining of the democratic process that lays at the foundation of the United States representative democratic government. “It’s just very disappointing and shocking at times to hear the president say the things that he...
    If you’re married, you’ll often do better with a joint claiming strategy for Social Security benefits. As I wrote last time, that usually works best if the two spouses are close in age and if one spouse earned considerably more than the other did during their work lives. But sometimes loved ones leave us way too soon and marriages end. These major life events can take a big emotional toll, but at least financially, Social Security can help cushion the blow. Divorced and widowed spouses can collect spousal or survivors’ benefits—benefits based on a spouse’s lifetime earnings—with some restrictions. For a spouse who has been out of the workforce for a long time (traditionally the woman, though it can apply to husbands of higher earners as well) it can mean the difference between a decent standard of living in retirement and living from hand-to-mouth. But there are some rules you need to know. And again, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA), the same laws apply to same-sex married couples as to opposite sex spouses. Claiming strategies for widows and...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on President Donald Trump continuing to insist on the campaign trail that the U.S. is “rounding the turn” on the coronavirus. The president has even taking to going on rants at his rallies about how all the media talk about is “covid covid covid.” “A plane goes down, 500 people dead, they don’t talk about it. Covid Covid Covid Covid,” the president said on Saturday. “President Trump said, ‘We’re rounding the corner, it’s going away,'” Tapper told Meadows. “Mark, it’s not going away even in the White House!” Tapper was referencing the new outbreak of coronavirus among staffers for Vice President Mike Pence, including his chief of staff Marc Short. Tapper brought up new record highs reached in just the past few days with respect to the number of covid cases, along with hospitalizations and deaths going up. “Would you agree this remains very serious, numbers are going in the wrong direction, and people still need to take precautions?” Tapper asked. Meadows defended the U.S. coronavirus response by...
    R. Kelly's attorneys say security video shows prison guards failed to stop the singer from being beaten by a fellow inmate inside Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center.   According to a motion filed Friday, Kelly, 53, is suffering 'significant physical and psychological injuries' stemming from the August attack, which his lawyers claim  could have been 'encouraged' by staffers at the facility.  Kelly is being held at the MCC as he awaits trial on several dozen counts of state and federal sexual misconduct charges in Illinois, Minnesota and New York.  An incident report from the US Bureau of Prisons claims Kelly was ambushed by gang member Jeremiah Shane Farmer as he slept on the bottom bunk of his prison cell on August 26.  On that day, Farmer managed to separate from prison guards and enter the Kelly's cell, where he repeatedly stomped on the singer's head. The star was only saved when security personnel deployed pepper-spray.  But in their new motion, Kelly's attorneys claim that jailhouse security video shows a more troubling version of events.   R.

    If you had to choose, what would you say the most stressful event in life is? A new survey found that it’s not having kids or even starting a new job – but rather moving. The survey asked 1,000 Americans who have moved within the last three years about their experiences and the growing pains that come with moving on. Whether they did their most recent move themselves or hired a moving service, 45 percent of respondents said moving is by far the most stressful event in life. SWNS Next in line for life’s most stressful events was going through a breakup or divorce at 44 percent. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of North American Van Lines, the survey found 64 percent of respondents said their most recent move was one of the most stressful things they’ve ever experienced. In fact, of those surveyed who did their last move on their own, 43 percent said they would never do it again. The top stress points of an independent move included moving their furniture through doors, closely followed by pivoting furniture...
    Arians says he, Brady fine after coach criticizes QB 14 Tricky Tactics That Could Cost You Your Vote You Should Plan on Claiming Social Security at 62 -- Even If You Dont End Up Doing It Many seniors spend years going back and forth on Social Security -- specifically, trying to decide when to claim it. Signing up for benefits at 62 is appealing because it's the earliest age to file, but if you go that route, you'll slash your monthly benefit substantially. © Provided by The Motley Fool You Should Plan on Claiming Social Security at 62 -- Even If You Don't End Up Doing It On the other hand, if you wait until full retirement age (FRA) to sign up, you won't face a reduction in benefits at all. Rather, you'll get the full monthly benefit you're entitled to based on your earnings history. FRA is either 66, 67, or somewhere in between, depending on your year of birth. There's also the option to delay benefits past FRA. For each year you do, they'll go up by...
    Greenland's glaciers have already passed the 'point of no return' beyond which the ice would continue to melt away even if global warming stopped, a study has found. Experts from the US used nearly 40 years of satellite data to measure the annual rate of ice loss and snow accumulation on 200 large glaciers around the vast island. They found that, in the early 2000s, the rate of ice loss began to consistently exceed the accumulation of replenishing snow on the ice sheet. This has let the glaciers retreat to such an extent they are now melting faster — making it harder for them to grow back to their previous, more stable positions. The Greenland ice sheet, pictured, has passed the 'point of no return' — with annual snowfall no longer able to keep up with the amount of ice melting due to global warming (stock image) 'We've been looking at these remote sensing observations to study how ice discharge and accumulation have varied,' said paper author and climate scientist Michalea King of the Ohio State University. 'What...
