    President Joe Biden started a Democratic National Committee speech with a teachers union on Friday with eye-opening remarks. Pointing to a member of the crowd at the National Education Association, he said: 'You gotta say hi to me. We go back a long way. She was 12, I was 30.' The audience laughed before he said: 'This woman helped me get a lot done'.  Later in the remarks he said: 'I mean this from the bottom of my heart. Those of you who know me, no one ever doubts I mean what I say, the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean.' It was the start of speech in Washington D.C. where he attacked MAGA Republicans and called GOP leader Kevin McCarthy's 'Commitment to America' policy plan 'thin'.  The president also promised to veto a Republican abortion ban if it arrived at his desk and said the midterms are a choice between 'hope, unity, optimism' and 'division, fear, darkness'.  He celebrated gas prices being down $1.30 a gallon and re-upped his attacks on the use of assault weapons.

    Controversial radio host Alex Jones was back in court today as his second defamation trial over his claims the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax gets underway. Jones is facing a second lawsuit from families over his comments related to the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, in which 20 children and six adults were murdered. Jones was found guilty by default in the case last year after failing to provide the requested information to the court including google analytics data that would show viewership numbers for his conspiracy theory website InfoWars. The trial taking place now will determine how much Jones owes the family in damages. Today in court, he came face-to-face with some of the Sandy Hook parents that he once labeled as crisis actors after their children’s murders. Jones taking the stand didn’t proceed without his typical bluster as he ended up getting into a heated argument with the plaintiffs’ attorney Chris Mattei. In a clip circulating Twitter via Law & Crimes Cathy Russon, Mattei pointed out one parent in the courtroom, Robbie Parker, whose...
    The Queen's cheeky great-grandson Prince Louis stole the hearts of the nation as he pulled faces and mucked about with his royal family at Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee celebrations this summer. So mourners looking to have their spirits lifted even a little after the late Monarch's death on September 8 were disappointed to learn that the Prince and Princess of Wales's youngest - aged four - would not be attending yesterday's historic state funeral for his 'Gan Gan'. Now Twitter users are joking about what antics the little prince might have gotten up to while 'home alone' for the day - with many kidding that the 'real reason' young Louis did not go was because of a 'high chance of chaos'.  One meme shows the young royal's face superimposed on the film poster of the classic 1990 movie Home Alone in place of Macaulay Culkin, while many others have shared memes of Culkin's character Kevin running around the house after his parents accidentally forget to bring him on holiday under the caption: 'And we now go live to Prince Louis at Buckingham...
    Disney CEO Bob Chapek spoke for the first time about his response to Florida's Don't Say Gay bill since apologizing to staff for not speaking out against the controversial legislation last spring.  Chapek said he initially chose to remain quiet about the bill because he wanted to balance the desires of Disney's employees and its customers, and hoped to keep the media giant out of the political controversy the bill sparked. 'What we try to do is be everything to everybody,' Chapek told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview, 'That tends to be very difficult because we’re The Walt Disney Company.' 'We certainly don’t want to get caught up in any political subterfuge, but at the same time we also realize that we want to represent a brighter tomorrow for families of all types, regardless of how they define themselves,' he said.  Chapek landed in hot water last spring when he took no public stance on the Don't Say Gay bill, which barred schools from discussing sexuality or gender with children between kindergarten and third grade.  According to an...

    A California judge, who hails from a powerful Democrat family who endorsed LA DA George Gascon, granted a mistrial for a man facing life in prison because he was sleepy. The alleged criminal apparently did not get a good night’s rest before the trial after spending the night in a cell without a bed or blanket.  Vamazae Elgin Banks, 24, appeared in court after threatening a McDonald's worker with a gun before stealing less than $100.  Court records accused Banks of telling the cashier at the fast food joint that he would kill her if she didn't produce the cash quickly enough, allegedly telling her 'hurry up or I'll blow your brains out!' Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel Lowenthal made the mistrial ruling after he decided the alleged robber couldn’t take proper notes due to his lack of proper sleep. Trials like these typically cost the judicial system between $600-$1,300.  Alan Nakasone, Banks' lawyer, argued before Lowenthal that his client could not take notes properly due to inadequate housing the night before, where he says he had a cell with...

    Britney Spears has taken aim at her father Jamie in a shocking new audio clip that was uploaded to YouTube on Sunday night. Spears, 40, was speaking candidly about the circumstances that led to her being placed in a conservatorship in 2007 and how her life unfolded while her decisions were controlled by her family.  Speaking about her family's behavior during the conservatorship, the Stronger singer asked: 'How the f*** did they they get away it?'  The singer says that her father was constantly abusive to her and her brother, Bryan.  When talking about her brother, Spears said: 'My brother was a football player.

    SACRAMENTO —  It was California Farm Worker Appreciation Day, and the farm laborers and their supporters arriving at the state Capitol were disappointed but not defeated — pretty much summing up 60 years of history for the struggling union that represents them. Thousands showed up. They came in roller skates and strollers, burning copal incense to cleanse weary spirits, chanting the “Sí se puedé" slogan Dolores Huerta coined and Cesar Chavez made famous. But they also came Friday knowing they were unlikely to win what they are after — the governor’s signature on a controversial bill. “This march is not in vain,” Huerta, now 92 years old, told the crowd as she tried to keep the energy positive. But it looks like it might be. The gathering on the Capitol steps was the end of a 335-mile march through the August heat of the Central Valley in support of a measure that would change the rules for how their union elections are held — Assembly Bill 2183 — but which Gov. Gavin Newsom has indicated he will...
    In a room in Italy, Rudy Guede appears carefree as he laughs and jokes with members of his 'rehabilitation' team. The scenes, which appear in a new documentary, show the 34-year-old from the Ivory Coast serving the final months of his sentence for murdering British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy. Of his 30-year jail term he served just 14 years, the last year of which was spend doing community service. Guede's case was fast-tracked which meant he was never compelled to give testimony of to be cross-examined in court despite protesting his innocence. Nevertheless, his blood-stained fingerprints and DNA at the scene ensured a conviction for Meredith's murder and sexual assault. But the only other suspects were American student Amanda Knox and her Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, both of whom were acquitted in Italy's highest court after eight long years of trial and retrial. I first came face-to-face with suspect Sollecito just hours after the murder when he agreed to be interviewed and smirked for a picture. Today, the Kercher family is still not clear about what truly happened...

    Neveah Monroe told Boston police two armed robbers burst into the 4 Corners Cannabiz store on Monday, Aug. 8, demanded cash and then bolted. But investigators later learned Neveah Monroe wasn't the victim of any crime because she didn't exist. Jessica Lugo, 27, of Roxbury was arrested on Wednesday after police said she took part in an elaborate plot to rob the Dorchester store, the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said.  Lugo lied and used the fake name Neveah Monroe to get a job at the store on Washington Street, authorities said. It's unclear when she started working there. On Monday, she reported that someone robbed 4 Corners Cannabiz, but her story didn't match the security camera videos. The CCTV cameras showed two armed robbers entering the store, but they left after Lugo shooed them away because there were customers in the building, authorities said. She didn't call the police to report this.  About 30 minutes later, the robbers returned. Investigators said they moved through the store as if they had inside information about its operations. They made off with $27,000 in money...

    (CNN)Hours after rioters overran the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, then-President Donald Trump released a video message to them. Even at the time, it was weird. Here's the transcript (bolding is mine):"I know your pain, I know you're hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don't want anybody hurt."It's a very tough period of time. There's never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us — from me, from you, from our country.

The last payment for 2021 was sent to families on December 15. 1The IRS allows you to update your tax information online The payments were part of the American Rescue Plan, with the first monthly advance child tax credits (CTC) payments sent in July.

    During a discussion about Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) being subpoenaed by the Fulton County District Attorney, former Homeland Security Department chief of staff Miles Taylor suggested that allies of Donald Trump should consider getting lawyers if they haven't already. Hice, a firm "states rights" advocate, is begging that the grand jury be moved from the state to the federal court system. The case, however, involves the violation of state election laws. "The first thing you pointed out has to be underscored, is the massive conflicts of interest here that we didn't necessarily know about when congress was trying to create first a version of the 9/11 commission -- to model something around Jan. 6 that was like the 9/11 commission and then subsequently trying to get Republicans to agree to the select committee," said Taylor. "At that time a lot of folks thought it was just partisan politics, but we're starting to find out that there's a whole array of targets of potential criminal investigations, sitting members of Congress who were very involved in this saying, 'No, no, no, we...
    In the midst of a prolific playoff run in which he helped guide the Golden State Warriors to their fourth title in eight seasons, it was easy to forget All-Star Andrew Wiggins almost began the year without his shot. His COVID shot. At the beginning of the 2021-2022 season, a San Francisco health order required Warriors players to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to be eligible to participate in home games at Chase Center. Wiggins said in September he preferred not to get vaccinated, telling reporters at a press conference the decision was “none of your business is what it comes down to.” Wiggins ultimately chose to comply with the health order and get the vaccine, but even after the best season of his professional career and his first NBA title, the forward said he regrets the decision. “I still wish I didn’t get (the vaccine) to be honest with you,” Wiggins told FanSided in an interview Monday. “But you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.” The sentiment echoes comments Wiggins made in March, after he was named an...

    Former President Trump was furious that a number of his supporters could not get through security at the 'Save America' rally because they were armed with prohibited weapons and demanded metal detectors be removed from the event, according to a former White House staffer.  Cassidy Hutchinson, a former assistant to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, told the Jan. 6 committee in a hearing Tuesday that Trump was  'furious' that his supporters had been stopped from entering the official grounds of his Stop the Steal rally near the White House that preceded the riot.  He was apparently angry that the size of the crowd coming to hear him speak did not appear as big as he wanted it to - due to his armed supporters not getting past the security magnetometers. 'Take the effing mags away,' she said Trump ordered, referring to the metal detectors attendees had to go through. 'Who cares if they have weapons, they're not here to hurt me,' the former president allegedly said. Cassidy Hutchinson, a former assistant to Trump White House chief of...
    Conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas  said in interviews published in a new book that he wasn't sure why he was nominated for the Supreme Court - and 'celebrated not being nominated' when he thought President George H.W. Bush had passed him up.  'I have no idea why or how I got nominated,' Thomas said, according to the book Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, which came out earlier this month.  Thomas also admitted that he 'hadn't thought about' the abortion issue in the run-up to his 1991 confirmation hearings.   Thomas was one of the six conservative Supreme Court justices to strike down Roe v. Wade with Friday's Dobbs decision, going a step further by filing a concurring opinion suggesting that cases legalizing contraception and same-sex marriage should get another look from the court as well.  Created Equal was a companion project to a documentary on Thomas released in 2020 by filmmaker Michael Pack, who led the U.S. Agency for Global Media under former President Donald Trump, and Mark Paoletta, a lawyer who worked alongside Thomas during his confirmation. ...

Support our nonprofit reporting. Subscribe to our print magazine.Prior to Roe v. Wade, the seminal 1973 US Supreme Court ruling that guaranteed abortion care as a constitutional right, Kitty S. served as an “abortion navigator” in Texas, helping people travel out of state to obtain the procedure. Today, she’s “shocked” that nearly 50 years later, she is doing the same—under Texas’ Senate Bill 8, which has banned abortions after six weeks since it took effect in September, and soon under a total ban now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe. Kitty has spent her entire career in reproductive rights, working at various abortion clinics in her state, including Women’s Reproductive Services in Houston, where today she works as an advocate and educator as the clinic has adapted to life under what was one of the country’s harshest abortion laws.

    Black, Indigenous and people of color giving birth were more likely than white people to experience health providers coercing them to go along with procedures they did not want, or to have their lack of explicit consent disregarded altogether, according to a new study. The new research, published Thursday in the journal Birth, provides a sweeping look at how birthing experiences differ dramatically for pregnant people of color compared to pregnant white people. For instance, the study reported that 51% percent of BIPOC people surveyed said they received nonconsented procedures — such as getting an epidural or drugs to speed their labor— during perinatal care or while having a vaginal birth that they did not consent to. The corresponding figure for white people was 36%. Researchers with the University of British Columbia’s Birth Place Lab and UC San Francisco showed that while BIPOC and white people would decline care at the same rate, health providers were more likely to respect the wishes of white people.

The proposed settlement, which goes before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Elihu M. Berle on July 18 for preliminary approval, could mark the end of a four-year legal battle that has pitted tenants against Palmer’s company, GHP Management Corp. Court documents alleged the company — a subsidiary of G.H. Palmer Associates, one of the largest landlords in Southern California with more than 15,000 apartments in 23 Southern California complexes — withheld security deposits for years from thousands of tenants by charging repair and cleaning fees without properly notifying residents. California civil code dictates that landlords must disclose all repair and cleaning charges, as well as provide tenants with bills and invoices. Court documents allege that the company failed to send those notices, and in some cases, duplicated invoices to make it seem as if more were delivered than actually were. Palmer is...
    President Joe Biden on Wednesday mocked oil CEOs who complained about his criticism, saying he didn't know they'd get their feelings so hurt as he hinted he was open to a federal gas tax. Biden was asked about Chevron Chief Executive Michael Wirth, who wrote to Biden to say his administration was 'vilifying' the gas industry. 'He's mildly sensitive,' Biden quipped. 'I didn't know they'd get their feelings hurt that quickly.'  Earlier this month, Biden blasted oil companies for making record profits and urged them to increase oil production to alleviate gasoline prices. 'Your administration has largely sought to criticize, and at times vilify, our industry,' Wirth said in response in a letter addressed to President Biden.

    Developer Rick Caruso’s showing in the mayoral primary Tuesday demonstrated that a significant number of Angelenos want quick and immediate changes on homelessness and aren’t turned off by the vast fortune of a billionaire who has never held elected office. Caruso will face Rep. Karen Bass in the general election after the two candidates topped the field. In initial results, Caruso was leading Bass, 42% to 37%, on Wednesday. Both Democratic and Republican voters in Tuesday’s election backed the developer, a onetime Republican who jumped in the race just four months ago and is seeking big changes in how City Hall is run. He has proposed, for instance, removing all land use decisions from the City Council to deter corruption.

    A doctor burned to death in his crashed Tesla because the vehicle's electronic door handles didn't pop out, meaning rescuers couldn't save him from the flames, a lawsuit claims. Dr. Omar Awan, 48, died in February 2019 after crashing his Model S on South Flamingo Road in Broward County, Florida. His family have now sued Elon Musk's car company claiming the father-of-five's death could have been avoided were it not for the Tesla's door handles.  The car firm's vehicles have special door handles which sit flush to the cars body. They retract into the vehicle while it is moving, but can pop out when it stops to let people get inside.  After the crash, the initial rescuers on the scene were confused by the car's door handles, which hadn't popped out, and were unable to gain entry, NBC6 reported. First responders then arrived on the scene, and were also left stumped. Teslas are meant to have two back-up safety mechanisms. The first sees the door handles pop out automatically in the event of an accident, unless that accident happens very abruptly....
