    A NYC Macy's employee was found dismembered in two suitcases inside her apartment building after her abusive boyfriend refused to let security in. Her family is now blaming the building's staff for not doing more to save her.  Dasia Johnson, 22, of Brooklyn, was found cut up in suitcases in her Cypress Hills apartment in Brooklyn after security guards reportedly let her on-and-off-again abusive boyfriend inside.  The aspiring teacher's body was found on Wednesday after her aunt called security for a wellness check because she hadn't heard from her since Sunday. Building residents had also started complaining about the smell.  When guards arrived to the unit, the boyfriend - who has not been identified and reportedly lived in the unit at times - and another man refused to let them in.  When the guards left to call 911, the two men left the building. They have yet to be found and the boyfriend is currently listed as a suspect.  'The next thing I hear, a detective calls me and tells me it’s a crime scene now,' her aunt, who asked to...
    JOHNNY Depp is dating the lawyer who represented him when he lost a libel trial against The Sun in 2020.  The 59-year-old actor is reportedly smitten with mum-of-two Joelle Rich, 37, who is a partner at international law firm Schillings and in the middle of a divorce.  1Johnny Depp is said to be dating Joelle Rich, the lawyer from his failed libel case against the SunCredit: Getty Although she represented Depp in his failed trial against The Sun, she was not part of the legal team in his recent defamation case with ex-wife Amber Heard.  Joelle was in the courtroom to offer personal support but had “no professional obligation” in the proceedings, according to a US Weekly magazine source. The source said the couple are “seriously dating” and “their chemistry is off the charts”. But Rich is not the first brunette lawyer Depp has been linked to. Camille Vasquez, 38, was part of his team for the Heard trial in New York and rumours were rife about the pair enjoying a romance. But Vasquez was actually dating Brit exec...
    LIV Golf chief executive Greg Norman climbed Capitol Hill this week seeking lawmakers' support for the upstart tour amid its ongoing antitrust lawsuit against its PGA rivals, but was instead accused of spreading propaganda for his Saudi Arabian backers. Norman faced questions over LIV Golf's financing, which comes from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, as legislators from both parties accused him of wasting Congress' time on a business dispute between the tours. LIV Golf and seven of its players recently sued the PGA Tour over alleged antitrust violations, stemming from the Tour's decision to ban any golfers who signed with the Saudi-backed circuit. 'They wanted to talk about antitrust, and I could care less,' Congressman Tim Burchett (Republican-Tennessee) told the Washington Post. 'It's not Congress's job. We're a country of laws; take it up to the courts. That's where it needs to be, not in the halls of Congress. 'How in the hell are we wasting any time talking about a bunch of millionaires and a golf game?' he continued. 'This is all just Saudi propaganda.' LIV Golf chief executive...
    CNN legal contributor Norm Eisen said that New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil suit against former President Donald Trump, his three oldest children, and the Trump Organization is “devastating” and “may be as or more serious than some of the pending criminal cases” against Trump. James announced on Wednesday a civil suit against Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and the Trump organization over alleged fraud between 2011 and 2021. CNN anchor Ana Cabrera asked Eisen, who served as the Democratic counsel on the House Judiciary Committee during Trump’s first impeachment, why James went the civil route when she said there are possible criminal violations over the alleged fraud. Eisen said James “has the power to do the civil suit” in which “she has very constrained criminal authority that wouldn’t reach here.” Eisen continued: And the civil suit is devastating. I mean, these are allegations and we have to emphasize it’s just allegations. This case has not yet been tried to a judge and jury. But these are allegations of a staggering fraud that’s spread over many...
    by Ben Whedon   Some of the migrants whom Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis flew to Martha’s Vineyard have filed a lawsuit against him and state officials. These migrants allege that the group boarded the planes under false pretenses. The governor sent two planes of illegal migrants to upper crust liberal enclave Martha’s Vineyard late last week, prompting horror from the area’s residents and outrage from Democratic politicians. Authorities promptly relocated the migrants from the wealthy area to a military base near Cape Cod. California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom even suggested that the Department of Justice could pursue kidnapping charges amid reports that the migrants were misled as to their destination and received false promises of expedited work authorizations, a pivotal claim in the suit. “These immigrants, who are pursuing the proper channels for lawful immigration status in the United States, experienced cruelty akin to what they fled in their home country,” the filing reads, according to The Hill. “Defendants manipulated them, stripped them of their dignity, deprived them of their liberty, bodily autonomy, due process and equal protection under law, and impermissibly interfered with the...

    A Democratic official in Nevada who is accused of murdering a Las Vegas journalist who allegedly exposed his affair could continue drawing his $130,000 salary for months despite damning evidence against him, it was revealed.  Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles was arrested on Wednesday, five days after Jeff German, a reporter with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, was fatally stabbed outside his home. Tellas, 45, is being held without bail and faces one count of murder with the use of a deadly weapon, according to online court records. City officials say that despite the murder charge, Tellas will remain in his elected role and continue receiving his six-figure salary until another person is elected.  'For now, he's still an elected officer and he'll get paid while he's in jail,' Democratic Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom told WSAV on Friday. German, 69, had spent months reporting on complaints that Telles had an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate and oversaw an abusive workplace, saying it was 'turmoil.' Tellas has denied the accusations.  The journalist was found dead on September 3, and sources told KLAS that Telles'...
    The Lincoln Project's co-founder has dared Donald Trump to make good on his threat to sue the group after new adverts called his supporters 'suckers.' Rick Wilson called him a 'b****' and said he couldn't wait for the battle, adding: 'I double-dog dare you'. It comes after Trump launched a blistering attack on the Lincoln Project and Fox News for the adverts that attacked him. He branded them 'perverts and lowlifes' and said they should not be allowed to 'false advertise'. It is not clear if he plans to make good on his threat to sue.

    Steve Bannon on Friday accused the White House of trying to stir up leftwing extremists in an effort to have opponents killed, after armed police descended on his Washington, D.C., home in an apparent 'swatting.' He was not home at the time but blamed President Joe Biden and his administration for whipping up hatred against Donald Trump and his allies. 'I'm never going to stop so they'll have to kill me first,' he told DailyMail.com.  'And if they kill me so bad.'  Police in the nation's capital said cops were called to Bannon's home - from where the former White House chief strategist normally broadcasts his War Room radio show - on A Street NE at 7:17 pm local time.  That was minutes before Biden delivered a set-piece speech on the 'battle for the soul of the nation,' and hours after White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre appeared to denounce anyone whose beliefs were outside the mainstream as 'extreme.' Bannon has been a pivotal player in attempts to overturn the 2020 election result. And he has used his radio show...
    Former President Donald Trump appeared to be very upset with the Department of Justice, and not just because of an ongoing investigation into classified documents. It was Trump’s first public appearance since the Department of Justice filed a stunning rebuke of his request for an independent special master review of documents retrieved from Mar-a-Lago after a search warrant was served on Aug. 8. The DOJ filing included a photo of what appears to be classified and top secret documents, which would be a felony offense under a 2018 law then-President Trump signed into law himself. Trump went on the conservative digital outlet Real American Voices and Twitter doyen Ron Filipikowski initially flagged the segment above.  Trump can be heard railing against the DOJ for spreading out what he called “confidential documents” all over the floor, “like a slob.” Trump railed: “A lot of people think that when you walk into my office, they have confidential documents or whatever. It may be all declassified, but I had confidential documents spread out all over my floor. Floor. And like a slob, like...
    The 26-year-old member of the Dutch Commando Corps who lost his life after being shot dead as he walked home with his comrades from an Indianapolis nightclub on Saturday night has been pictured for the first time since the killing.  Simmie Poetsema was shot in the back of the head outside the Hampton Inn hotel having brushed against his killer on the sidewalk on his way back to the property. Poetsema was with two fellow solider who were also shot and injured at the time. Shamar Duncan, 22, is accused of carrying out the fatal shooting. He allegedly told a friend who was with him that morning that he opened fire on the soldiers because he 'flipped out,' according to an arrest affidavit. An unnamed witness also told cops that Duncan and his two friends were 'looking for trouble' and that the onlooker saw them cross a street and shove a man in a group of people, who walked away.  Duncan's group then picked a fight with the soldiers, the witness said.

    The complaints caused SUU to launch an investigation into Bugg five days later. In the meantime, the nonbinary student encouraged others attending Bugg's class to boycott the course. The student requested that the school offer students a substitute "shadow class." As a result of the investigation, university leaders concluded in January 2022 that Bugg had allegedly violated school policy by discriminating and harassing a student based on gender identity. Three months later, the university accused the professor of sexual harassment for refusing to use the nonbinary student's preferred pronouns. University officials considered it "conduct based on sex" that was "objectively offensive" and violated the student's access to equal education, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. Kevin Price, the university's assistant vice president of human resources, issued sanctions against Bugg. The professor was ordered to attend a course on gender-neutral language. Price ruled that if Bugg continued to refuse to use "they/them" to refer to the student, additional sanctions would be implemented, including his termination. The university also stated that his pay would be reduced if the school had...
    Former Playboy bunnies Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt have hurled yet another damning abuse allegation at disgraced founder Hugh Hefner, saying he would often shed fake tears in a manipulative attempt to obtain sex. The two blondes dropped the bizarre bombshell Monday, on the third episode of their new tell-all podcast, titled Girls Next Level, which premiered last week. The pair were often in the spotlight as two of the magazine tycoon's main girlfriends - and their new show attempts to shed new light on their years in the infamous Playboy Mansion in the early 2000s.

    Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said he has learnt fresh details of the gang-rape allegations leveled at Matt Araiza in the last 24 hours after leaving him out of the team that played Carolina Panthers on Friday night. McDermott faced the media after his team was beaten 21-0 in a preseason game overshadowed by allegations that emerged on Thursday that Araiza gang-raped a 17-year-old in an off-campus party at San Diego State in 2021. Coach McDermott said Araiza would travel back with the team after Friday's game but refused to comment on any involvement he would have beyond that.  'I would say there has been some (new detail in the last 24 hours), I'm not going to deny that and that's why I have more work to do on this,' McDermott said. 'I'm trying to be solution oriented right now. 'It was my decision (for him not to play). I didn't feel it was right.

    The man charged with mowing down and murdering six people at a Christmas parade in Wisconsin was removed from court on Friday, after complaining that he was 'bored' and insisting the trial was 'political'. Darrell Brooks, a 40-year-old career criminal, is accused of deliberately driving his SUV in a zigzag manner down the Waukesha Christmas parade route, running people over and injuring 62 on November 21.  He was arrested the same day and remanded in custody: on Friday, during a pretrial hearing, he fell asleep several times, and then ranted at Judge Jennifer Dorow, WISN reported. 'You sit up here and act like you know me,' he said, as she stood with her arms folded.  'People like you don't know nothing about where I come from.' Brooks was also heard to say that he was 'bored' by proceedings, and raged at sheriff's deputies as they led him out of court at Judge Dorow's instructions.  Darrell Brooks is shown in court in Waukesha. He fell asleep during proceedings on Friday, yelled at the judge, and then asked to go back to...
    President Joe Biden paid tribute on Friday to 13 American service members who died during the final days of the Kabul airlift when a suicide bomber detonated explosives packed with ball bearings amid the chaos of the city's airport. 'Our nation will forever mourn their sacrifice and honor the memory of those 13 precious souls, stolen from their families, loved ones, brothers- and sisters-in-arms far too soon while performing a noble mission on behalf of our nation,' he said. However, Biden has faced repeated questions about whether the withdrawal operation was properly executed. The world watched with horror as desperate Afghans fells from U.S. planes as they tried to escape the Taliban whose gunmen overran the capital on August 15 last year. The Biden administration has repeatedly said the mission was a success - flying more than 120,000 people to safety - angering the families of the 13 who died.  President Joe Biden paid tribute on Friday to 13 American service members who died during the final days of the Kabul airlift when a suicide bomber detonated explosives packed...

    Former President Donald Trump lashed out at the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday afternoon, claiming without evidence on his Twitter imitation app Truth Social that FBI personnel are burning with anger over the August 8th execution of a search warrant at his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump was particularly incensed toward FBI Director Christopher Wray – "a man of impeccable credentials" whom he nominated on June 7th, 2017 – as well as Wray's predecessor James Comey whom Trump fired on the prior May 9th in his attempts to shut down the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election. Trump also complained about the United States Department of Justice's decision to not prosecute 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

    (CNN)Former Trump White House adviser Peter Navarro asked a federal judge to dismiss the criminal contempt of Congress case that was brought against him after he did not comply with a House January 6 Committee subpoena.In the motion filed late Wednesday evening, Navarro argued that the Justice Department's move to bring the charges against him was "in direct contradiction of decades of Department of Justice policy and precedent." He pointed to the Justice Department policy that said that advisers to the President were shielded from congressional demands for testimony and claimed that that "immunity continues even after the tenure of a particular advisor to the President."Navarro argued that he had "been unfairly caught in a dispute between the executive and legislative branches of our government and placed on the horns of a dilemma: follow the explicit instructions from the President he served as a senior advisor for four years, or risk being held in Contempt of Congress and criminally prosecuted by the Department of Justice.""A prosecution for Contempt of Congress following a legitimate assertion of Executive Privilege precluding Dr. Navarro's...
    Allen Weisselberg, Donald Trump's longtime financial chief, is expected to plead guilty on Thursday in a deal that will require him to testify against the former president's company. Under the terms of the agreement, Weisselberg, who was facing up to 15 years in prison, will spend as little as 100 days behind bars, The New York Times reported. It does not require Weisselberg to turn on Trump himself. But the former financial officer at the Trump Organization will have to admit to all 15 felonies he was charged with and will have to testify about his role in a scheme to avoid paying taxes on lavish corporate perks. That testimony will make Weisselberg a central witness in the October trial of the Trump Organization, where it will face many of the same charges. He is not expected to implicate the former president nor any Trump family members in his testimony. But the acknowledgment from one of the Trump Organization’s top executives that he committed the crimes will undercut any effort by the company’s lawyers to argue that no crime was committed....
    A gay porn star has shared a montage of his Moneypox symptoms that he developed over a month which left huge blisters and could leave scars for life.  Silver Steele, of Houston, Texas, started getting Monkeypox symptoms around July 11, when small pimple-like white spots started appearing around his mouth.  Over the course of three weeks, Steele watched the spots become painful, red blisters before it eventually scabbed over and started healing.  The porn star said he was posting the montage of his symptom development 'not to gross anyone out, but to educate.' 'This is really hard to look at,' he said in a July 25 video he posted to his social media. 'I'm just asking everyone to be a little compassionate and to understand that if its hard to look out, imagine what it's like to have.'  'Not everyone displays symptoms the exact same way, but I’ve been told by more than one professional that my case is a "clinically perfect" example,' he said on Instagram on August 4.  Gay porn star Silver Steele, of Houston, Texas, developed horrific...
    Eduardo Escobar is still not 100 percent, and the Mets kept him out of the starting lineup on Tuesday in favor of Deven Marrero. Escobar hurt his oblique in the team’s game on Friday night, was kept out of the starting nine on Saturday and Sunday, and likely wouldn’t have played on Monday if not for Luis Guillorme’s subsequent groin injury. Guillorme got hurt on Sunday, and with the Mets having to immediately fly into Atlanta, they put Escobar back out there at third base on Monday. He went 0-for-4 with an RBI groundout and committed an error that jump-started Atlanta’s eight-run sixth inning. “Defensively, I felt fine,” Escobar said following Monday’s game. “That’s something that we worked on all day [on Monday]. We really prepared for that. Thank God, every ground ball that was hit to me, I felt fine. On the throws, I felt fine.” His oblique injury is on his left side, which creates a problem when he tries to hit right-handed. When he faced Braves’ lefty Danny Young on Monday, the switch-hitting Escobar elected to bat...
    Former President Donald Trump’s long history of imprudent tweets may have come back to haunt him—by strengthening any Justice Department case that the documents he improperly kept after leaving the White House were still indeed top secret. “It is poetic how much of this litigation—were he to be charged—will be determined by his own actions,” said Kel B. McClanahan, a national security lawyer who teaches at George Washington University. That’s because of the way Trump while president tweeted many promises to declassify documents, then retreated and used the Department of Justice to vigorously defend the sanctity of the way the government classifies documents. He has essentially trapped himself, as he now faces an FBI investigation into whether he put the American people’s security at risk by mishandling government secrets and potentially violating the Espionage Act. Essentially, Trump’s freewheeling style on Twitter forced the administration to take a harder stance on just what it means to declassify a document—forcing the government to emphasize the rigorous, multi-step nature of the bureaucratic process. He can’t now say it merely takes a wave of...
    A Twitter employee said of Berenson's tweets, "I've taken a pretty close look at his account and I don’t think any of it’s violative." Berenson wrote, "On July 16, 2021, President Biden complained publicly that social media companies were 'killing people' by encouraging vaccine hesitancy. A few hours after Biden’s comment, Twitter suspended my account for the first time." Four months after the meeting, Berenson's Twitter account was permanently banned. He was deplatformed for a tweet about the COVID-19 vaccine that read, "It doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission. Don’t think of it as a vaccine. Think of it – at best – as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS. And we want to mandate it? Insanity." Berenson and Twitter settled the lawsuit. Berenson was reinstated on Twitter in July. As part of the settlement, Twitter acknowledged that Berenson's tweets "should not have led to his suspension at that time." Berenson wrote, "The documents contain other revelations, including emails showing that other reporters asked Twitter...
    L.A. mayoral candidate Rick Caruso has vowed to create a designated office within city hall with the sole purpose of protecting Hollywood if he is elected, bringing music to the ears of the stars who have endorsed him.  Caruso, a billionaire former Republican real estate tycoon, made the promise in an interview with The Ankler this week. He is running against Democrat Karen Bass in the November election on a platform of tackling crime, homelessness and bringing an end to a steady stream of 'career politicians' who he says have ruined the city.  Part of his plan if elected is to create an office within his office that is dedicated to protecting Hollywood.  'I'm going to have a separate office within the mayor's office that's just going to focus on the entertainment industry.  'We have to have the cost of doing business for the entertainment industry, frankly, all businesses, but the entertainment industry to be lower in the city of Los Angeles,' he said.  Rick Caruso with Gwyneth Paltrow, one of the many stars to have endorsed him in his...
    Alan Dershowitz argued there is a concerted effort from opponents of former President Donald Trump to keep him from running for office in 2024. The former Harvard Law professor argued he did not want “bureaucrats” from denying him a chance to vote against the former president, should he run and ultimately win the GOP nomination. Dershowitz joined the right-wing streaming platform Real America’s Voice where he railed against what he described against an endeavor to disqualify Trump from office. “Look, I’m a liberal Democrat, I voted for [Joe Biden],” Dershowitz told John Solomon on Just the News Not Noise. “I’m not gonna vote for Trump if he runs for reelection. I want to have the right to vote against him, I don’t want to see bureaucrats deny me that right to vote against him, that’s what democracy is.” Dershowitz added Trump’s opponents are making an “attempt to try to get him disqualified from running.” “I don’t think it’s gonna work,” Dershowitz added. “I think it actually, probably has strengthened his base of support.” The attorney stated: There are three kinds...
    Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) borrowed a line from Clint Eastwood’s iconic “Dirty Harry” character to mock New York City Eric Adams for saying he was going to bring buses of New Yorkers to campaign against him. Adams’ comments were in response to Abbott busing migrants from Texas to New York City, which he as vowed to continue until President Joe Biden improved border security. “I already called all my friends in Texas and told them how to cast their vote and I am deeply contemplating taking a bus load of New Yorkers to go to Texas and do some good old-fashioned door knocking, because we have to — for the good of America — we have to get him out of office.” The Faulkner Focus host Harris Faulkner interviewed Abbott for his reaction. “I kind of feel like Clint Eastwood,” Abbott replied. “Go ahead, Mayor, make my day.” “There could hardly be anything better to aid my campaign” against Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke, said Abbott, “than to have his campaign aided by a bunch of New Yorkers. That won’t be viewed positively...

    White House spokesman John Kirby slapped down an 'insulting' question Thursday that President Biden had time on his hands as he isolates after repeatedly testing positive for the coronavirus. Kirby, the communications coordinator for the National Security Council, took the question as China took a series of aggressive actions after Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan. That included live fire exercises, air incursions across the Taiwan Strait, and other moves. 'He’s been working through his illness, Peter, so that’s a little bit insulting,' White House communications coordinator John Kirby said when asked why President Biden hadn't phoned Chinese President Xi Jinping Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy wanted to know why Biden wouldn't call Chinese President Xi Jinping, who Biden regularly says he has spent hour upon hour within and knows perhaps better than any other world leader does. 'I know you said there is not a call scheduled with XI. Is there a reason why?' Doocy asked him. 'Because President Biden's known him for decades. He's got a lot of free time up there in the residence this week,' he needled,...

The dad-of-two said he is "unable to return to his home" from his new home in California because "it is too dangerous" without security. Then Harry and Meghan were once again shocked when the Royalty and VIP Executive Committee refused to allow the couple police protection - even if they paid for it themselves. The court told them that British police are not "guns for hire". Read more Fabulous'LIFE'S TOO SHORT'...
    Prince Harry has filed a second lawsuit against the British government and Scotland Yard over the decision not to allow him to pay for police protection when he visits from California.  The Duke of Sussex is already suing the Home Office over its decision in 2020 to remove his taxpayer-funded protection, which he says makes it unsafe for him to come to Britain with his wife, Meghan Markle, and two children, Archie and Lilibet.  Now he has filed a second lawsuit against the Home Office which also names the Metropolitan Police, the High Court confirmed to MailOnline.  The Duke of Sussex has begun a second court case against the  Home Office over its decision in 2020 to remove his taxpayer-funded protection  'It is at an early stage, no hearings have been listed yet and no decisions have been made,' the Judicial Office added.  The new case will focus on a decision in January by the Royalty and VIP Executive Committee (RAVEC), which concluded that private individuals should not be allowed to pay for police to protect them.  The revelation of...
    They call him 'The Problem Child' - and there have been plenty of problems for Jake Paul lately. In the last seven months, he has seen three fights go up in smoke. Two with Love Island star Tommy Fury and now his bout with replacement Hasim Rahman Jr has been canned too. Since the YouTuber stepped into the ring in 2020 he has been good at spinning things his way on social media to ridicule an opponent, so it was no surprise this week to see him immediately pounce on Rahman Jr as a 'fraud fake fighter' over a dispute about making weight - claiming both him and Fury are 'scared to fight me'. However, this is a setback for Paul. He has his critics but has been largely successful with a profile that is growing hugely across the world. This was supposed to be the fight that silenced the doubters who claimed he had never fought a professional boxer. Indeed, victory at Madison Square Garden would have given him an official ranking with the WBC. Jake Paul has seen...

    GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — A prominent Guatemalan journalist’s initial hearing before a judge was suspended Wednesday when the judge announced that the defendant’s lawyers were also targets of the government’s investigation. Following the hearing, José Rubén Zamora, president of the newspaper El Periodico, said that the case “is a set-up effectively designed and mounted by the president, attorney general and other people.” Attorney General Consuelo Porras’ office arrested Zamora on a charge of money laundering, but during Wednesday’s hearing Zamora and his lawyers were also accused of extortion. The new allegation meant Zamora’s lawyers could no longer defend their client from something they themselves were accused of. “Ethically it is not appropriate,” said Romeo Montoya, one of Zamora’s lawyers. The extortion accusation came from businessman Ronald Navarijo García, who himself had previously been arrested on corruption charges for allegedly colluding with directors of Banco de los Trabajadores, or the Workers’ Bank, to embezzle its funds. Navarijo is under house arrest and his trial has not been scheduled. Navarijo alleges Zamora extorted him for about $25,000 to influence the case...
    Ioan Gruffudd has successfully obtained a three-year restraining order against estranged wife Alice Evans, which also bans her from mentioning him on social media. The Welsh actor, 48, hopes the new restrictions will end the public falling out between the pair, whose acrimonious split in March 2021 and consequent slanging matches threatened to overshadow their respective careers. Ioan had previously won a temporary restraining order against Alice, 54, the mother of his two daughters Ella, 12, and Elsie, eight, in February claiming he was inundated with messages and verbal threats from her.

    Amid a torrent of negative press for former President Donald Trump in Rupert Murdoch-owned outlets, and a splashy new A1 New York Times story suggesting that he’s being frozen out at Fox News, one prominent host on the network insists that there’s no ban on the former commander in chief. In a commentary on Sunday’s edition of MediaBuzz, Fox News host Howard Kurtz took umbrage with the Times report, and stated that Trump is not forbidden from appearing on the network. “A front page New York Times story this weekend strongly suggests that Fox News has not interviewed Donald Trump for over 100 days because the Murdoch family, whose Wall Street Journal and New York Post have run highly critical editorials, is said to have soured on him,” Kurtz said. “But I can report, there is no edict whatsoever against having Trump on this network.” Kurtz added that he recently has asked Trump to appear on his own show. “I have reached out myself with an invitation some weeks ago and people close to the former president confirmed he has...
    Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers declared Donald Trump “has no idea what courage is” as he slammed the Arizona Republican Party for politically exiling him and siding with the former president. Bowers spoke to ABC News’ Jon Karl following the Arizona GOP Executive Committee’s declaration that the former “has lost the confidence of a majority of Republican Party leaders and his colleagues in the legislature in the State of Arizona.” Karl noted that Trump just held a rally in Arizona where he pronounced Bowers a “RINO” who “disgraced himself” because he testified to the January 6th Committee about the former president’s attempts to pressure him into helping overturn the 2020 election. Asked for his response to Trump’s attacks, Bowers said “he has no idea what a hard life is, and what people have to go through in the real world. He has no idea what courage is.” Karl also asked Bowers for his thoughts about the hold Trump has over the Republican Party, particularly in Arizona. “They rule by thuggery, and intimidation,” Bowers said. “They found a niche, they found...

    "When that person is leaving, they place the gun somewhere, and one of the other individuals in the group that was with that individual picks up that apparent weapon and flees the scene," Deenihan added, according to WBBM. "Everybody fled the scene." Deenihan noted to the station that detectives are trying to identify everyone involved in the incident; no arrests have been made. "These offenders need to be captured and brought to justice to send that message you will be held accountable for any crimes that occur on the CTA," Police Superintendent David Brown said, according to WBBM. Is a trend developing? The station said it was the second time in three days that an individual used a knife to fight back against attackers on a Chicago train. Early Friday morning, six people with weapons attacked and tried to rob a train passenger, but the victim pulled a knife and fought back. In the end, three of the suspects were wounded and hospitalized, all six were arrested, but the victim was also wounded...
    Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Hilary Rhoda has filed for divorce from ex-New York Rangers star Sean Avery - six years after her mom filed for a restraining order against the hockey player and accused him of harassment. TMZ reported that the pair separated on July 17 - weeks after she took their son, Nash Avery, on a trip to Hawaii without Sean - and that the model cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for their split.  Hilary, 35, and Sean, 42 - who played hockey in the NHL for 13 seasons - first met at the bar Warren 77 in New York City in 2009 and got engaged four years later - in November 2013. They tied the knot at the Parrish Art Museum in New York in October 2015, and together, they welcomed their son, Nash, in July 2020. However, Hilary and Sean's relationship was not exactly picture perfect - with a source telling New York Daily News early on in their relationship that Sean - who struggled to find work after leaving hockey - was 'brainwashing' the model, while 'freeloading' off her.

    Three-fourths of Democratic voters want a different candidate on their ballot in the 2024 presidential election as the party continues to show their lack of confidence in President Joe Biden to win a second term. The 75 percent of Democratic and left-leaning voters who don't want to see Biden run for another term is a 24 percent uptick from the same CNN poll taken earlier this year. In January and February 2022, 51 percent of Democratic voters and those who lean that way said they would prefer a different candidate than Biden in the next election. The new poll shows the remaining 25 percent want Biden as the nominee – a steep decline from the 45 percent who wanted that outcome just six months prior. Twenty-four percent of those left leaning voters who were surveyed July 22-24 say they want someone else on the ballot because they don't think Biden can win in 2024. The same poll at the start of this year showed 18 percent of voters felt this way. Another 22 percent polled this month say they don't...

    Governor Larry Hogan suggested that after Donald Trump's candidate won Maryland's GOP gubernatorial primary this month, his potential ambitions for a White House run are emboldened. 'Does this [loss] make you more or less likely to run for president in 2024?' ABC News' Jonathon Karl asked Hogan in an interview on the This Week program. 'It makes me more determined than ever to continue the battle to win over the Republican Party and take us back to a bigger tent, more Reaganesque party,' Hogan said. He added: 'We got our work cut out for us but I'm certainly not giving up.' Hogan backed Kelly Schulz in the GOP primary election last Tuesday, but she lost to Dan Cox, who had the endorsement of former President Donald Trump. He admitted that Cox's win wasn't only a loss for Schulz, but also for him and his legacy. The Maryland governor claimed that it's very unlikely Cox will win the general election come November. 'So, it was a win for the Democrats,' he said. 'It's a big loss for the Republican Party and...
