    The huge success of 'Top Gun: Maverick' shows that even Hollywood has now realized the threat posed by China, according to military contractor Erik Prince, who praised the movie on Thursday for restoring a Taiwan patch to Tom Cruise's famous jacket. A trailer for the movie in 2019 raised fears that producers were bowing to China's new financial might by removing two of the patches that were seen on Cruise's back in the original movie. However, they were eventually restored despite worries the presence of a patch representing the autonomous island nation would offend Beijing.    'It's amazing to see Hollywood has come alive to the fact that a movie like Top Gun that is pro-America, and kind of stands up to China because China was complaining about the mere patch of Taiwan on Tom Cruise's jacket,' Prince told Steve Bannon on his War Room podcast, which was recorded at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas. Prince and Bannon have long railed against the threat of communist China. Tom Cruise's original jacket (left) showed patches with the flags of...
    THERE’S nothing worse than being woken up early by a noisy neighbour. Whether it’s your day off and you want a lie-in, or you’ve had a heavy night and are planning on spending the day chilling in bed, being woken up by someone is highly irritating. 1A woman has taken to Mumsnet to complain about her DIY obsessed neighboursCredit: Getty And that’s what’s happened to one mum, who is fuming after being constantly woken up by her loud neighbours in the middle of the night. But the woman isn’t being woken up to loud voices or annoying hair dryers - this woman’s elderly neighbours are taking on DIY projects that see them hammering their walls and slamming their cupboard doors shut in the early hours of the morning. The mum admitted she's losing her patience with her neighbours, as they've been periodically acting this way "for years", despite being completely quiet during the day. She also said she's tried writing them letters and has even paid a visit to their house in her pyjamas to complain about the noise, but...
    Harsh critics have slammed the G7 leaders for 'sitting around for photo opportunities' as they posed without ties looking like they've 'woken up after a stag do.' The world's seven most powerful leaders, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson, have been blasted online for their seemingly blasé approach to the summit, as they were accused of trying to look 'hip and trendy.'  Images of the politicians posing during a photo-call at Elmau Castle, Bavaria, have gone viral on social media - with many pointing out how 'relaxed' they looked. One critic online wrote: 'Why does the G7 Summit look like the dads and uncles at the end of a wedding who had 35 Heinekens and are accosting the photographer while their wives tell at them that their taxi is outside?' Another added: 'Of course Johnson's trousers are slipping down. Stag night mooning ready' while a third said that the Prime Minister looked as if he had been on a 'night out.' But others questioned the seriousness of the situation - accusing the leaders of the US, Germany, France, Italy, the UK,...

    MAKE-UP can be used for a number of different things; to enhance natural beauty, to change things up a bit or to boost confidence. But some people manage to make their make-up do magical things as they completely transform their appearance with the expertly applied slap. 2The TikToker showed herself in a high-glam shot with a full face of make-upCredit: @amayarambo/Tiktok 2She then showed followers what she looks like on a normal dayCredit: @amayarambo/Tiktok One TikToker showcased just that when she showed a picture of herself glammed up to the nines followed by her chilled at home without the make-up.

    Woke San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who last year spearheaded an effort to defund the city's police force, has revealed she will not march in this year's Pride parade, due to organizers' refusal to lift a ban blocking uniformed officers from attending.  'I love the Pride Parade, and what it means for our LGBTQ community and for our city. It's one of my favorite events of the year,' Breed said in a statement to San Francisco's Fox affiliate KTVU Monday. 'However, if the Pride Board does not reverse its decision, I will join our city public safety departments that are not participating in the Pride Parade,' the mayor, who elected to slice $120million off the city's police budget last year, went on to assert. The decision came hours after the San Francisco officers issued their own statement saying they would not attend the event, citing organizer's ban on officers in uniform participating. The city's fire department also said they were refusing to participate in the parade, in solidarity with the city's police force.  Organizers say the ban stems from the fact that the sight...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Bruins are alive and well in their series against the Carolina Hurricanes after winning two straight games in Boston to knot the series at two games apiece. They can thank a resurgence in their special teams play for stealing the momentum in the series. At the end of the regular season, the Bruins went a dozen straight games without a power play goal, going 0-for-36 with the man advantage during that stretch. They started their series against the Canes going 0-for-3 on the power play in Game 1, before notching one power play goal in five chances in Game 2. But a 1-for-8 start when you’ve got an extra skater isn’t going to lead to much success.

    The driver of a blue minibus, crammed full of people, was desperately trying to slide the door closed. Then I watched as a frantic woman stopped him from departing – handing a new-born baby girl to one of the passengers. After the vehicle sped off, the middle-aged woman, weeping softly, told me that her sister was on board, taking the last bus to Uman, a city in central Ukraine, where she would join their parents. So why was she not going? 'Why should I go? If they start bombing the cities they'll bomb all of them. It's not safe there but at least she'll be with the family.' The heartbreaking scene was eerily reminiscent of flickering film footage of the early days of the Second World War. I found myself among crowds of desperate people clutching bags, suitcases, pets and the hands of their partners as they tried to flee from an advancing army invading their country on three sides.

    REPORTS of explosions heard in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol add to the ever-growing fears that a Russian invasion may soon become a reality. Residents in the city located in south Eastern Ukraine say they were woken up around 3:30 in the morning by blasts near the Russian border. 1Explosions could be heard in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol Video shows plumes of smoke rising into the sky, however, it’s unconfirmed if it was the result of shelling. The explosions came hours after the US warned the Ukrainian government that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s troops are “ready to go now” with an invasion. Around 80 percent of Russian soldiers have assembled around the country in attack positions. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that “everything seems to be in place” for a full-scale attack on Ukraine if Russia decides to move forward. Blinken clarified to NBC Nightly News that he can’t “put a date or an exact time on” when Russia will exactly carry out the invasion but said that Russia has “positioned its forces at the final point of...
    JOE Biden appeared to fall asleep during the COP26 Climate Summit opening speeches before he was apparently woken up by a staff member. The President was caught on camera folding his arms and gradually appearing to nod off as the conference kicked off on Monday afternoon. 1Credit: Twitter Biden's eyes initially closed for mere seconds before he woke himself up, however, they did not open so quickly the second time they shut. President Joe Biden headed to the United Nations climate conference on Monday energized by a new legislative framework that, if enacted, would be the largest action ever taken by the United States to address climate change. The $555billion plan for climate spending is the centerpiece of a sweeping domestic policy package Biden and congressional Democrats presented Thursday, hours before the president traveled to Europe for another summit ahead of the climate meeting in Glasgow, Scotland. Biden called the plan “the most significant investment to deal with the climate crisis that ever happened, beyond any other advanced nation in the world.” While far from certain to pass in a...

    Melania Trump was sound asleep the night of the 2020 election as her husband, former President Donald Trump, and his allies were becoming increasingly agitated over then-candidate Joe Biden's growing command in the race, according to a new excerpt from Stephanie Grisham's book released Monday. The former White House press secretary claims in her memoir 'I'll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw In The White House,' that the former first lady spent part of the election coverage asleep before Trump held an unprecedented press conference prematurely claiming victory and fueling baseless theories of election fraud. 'I knocked a few times, quietly at first but louder at each attempt,' Grisham writes in the excerpt obtained by Politico. 'I finally opened the bedroom door only to find that Melania Trump was sound asleep.' She reportedly slept through most of the night, according to CNN.   But she woke up in time to join the former president's infamous 2:30 a.m. press conference.  Grisham, who was Melania's chief of staff at the time, speculated that she could've thought 'someone would wake her up if...

    Ghislaine Maxwell is sleeping with a sock on her face to shield her from prison guards shining a light into her cell every 15 minutes. The British socialite is using a prison-issue sock as a makeshift face mask to stop herself being woken up, her lawyers said. Maxwell’s attorney David Markus said that she is also using a towel to cover her face when she doesn't have a sock available. He made the claim during a contentious hearing for Maxwell's appeal against her third bail refusal. The judges appeared surprised that Maxwell, the alleged ‘madam’ for Jeffrey Epstein, was being subjected to such treatment. One of them asked the prosecution: ‘It’s routine to shine a light into the eyes of every prisoner every 15 minutes? Are you really telling us that?’ Maxwell’s third bail application was rejected by federal judge Alison Nathan last month. Appearing frail with graying hair after months behind bars, Ghislaine Maxwell pleaded not guilty today in her first in-person hearing since her arrest last year.

    California businessman and Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox thinks "voters have finally woken up" in the Golden State, where an effort to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom is well underway. "I think the voters have finally woken up here. ... I do believe that the voters, when presented with a realistic alternative ... they're going to decide that's the way to go," Cox told Fox News. "The insiders like Gavin Newsom have run this state down, and it's time that the people decide what's going to happen."

(AP Photo/Chris Carlson, File) Another Republican gubernatorial candidate, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, is leading the recall effort that reached more than 2.1 million signatures in March despite only needing 1.5 million for a recall vote on this year's ballot.

    Last week the title was finally able to close / cancel the weekly bearish gap in March that it had attacked so many times without success. It is even surpassing the June highs as well. Technical analysis BREAKING RESISTANCE Short term Medium term Long term We have been talking in recent months about the weekly bearish gap in March in stocks. Repsol. In all attempts to close it, without success. Until last week the miracle took place and the price closed it. Therefore from that moment on we have a new sign of strength. But it is that, in addition, has also dared with the maximums of June (9.19). From what it can be deduced that the oil company has woken up and is strong. In fact, corrections aside it would seem that the way is clear until the next great resistance: the Bearish gap at the end of February (10.90) which in turn coincides with the summer lows of 2019.

    Ghislaine Maxwell has been entrusted with monitoring other inmates who might be suicidal, her lawyers have claimed in newly unsealed court papers. The suspect child sex trafficker and former girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein has reportedly been handed the task at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she’s being held while she awaits trial. ‘She has been made a suicide watch inmate, which is the highest and most trusted responsibility that an inmate can have,’ attorneys Mark Cohen and Jeffrey Pagliuca wrote in a motion requesting her release to home confinement on a $28.5 million bail package, the NY Post reported. Maxwell’s lawyers have routinely complained about the ‘onerous’ jail conditions the 58-year-old has been subjected while at the facility, including claims that she herself is being woken up by guards with flashlights every 15 minutes to make sure she hasn’t killed herself. ‘It’s the height of irony that Ms. Maxwell is being constantly surveilled as if she were a suicide risk when she, herself, is trusted enough (if she were ever released from isolation) to monitor inmates who are...
    Ghislaine Maxwell, ex-girlfriend and associate of the late Jeffrey Epstein, is woken up every 15 minutes while in prison to ensure she is still alive, according to her attorney. "Despite non-stop in-cell camera surveillance Ms. Maxwell's sleep is disrupted every 15 minutes when she is awakened by a flashlight to ascertain whether she is breathing," attorney Bobbi Sternheim wrote in a letter filed Tuesday, CNN reported. Maxwell was arrested on July 2 and was charged with grooming and abusing underage girls, and she has pled not guilty to the charges. She is awaiting her court trial scheduled for July 2021 at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn, New York. Her lawyer said her placement at the detention center is "in de facto solitary confinement under the most restrictive conditions," adding that Maxwell is "excessively and invasively searched" and monitored 24 hours per day. Additionally, the attorney stated that psychologists monitor Maxwell for several hours a day without her knowledge. Sternheim argued that the treatment Maxwell received is worse than that of those convicted of terrorism or capital murder and has asked U.S....

    Accused child abuser Ghislaine Maxwell is roused by a flashlight every 15 minutes in her cell to make sure she hasn’t killed herself like Jeffrey Epstein — and subjected to more onerous conditions than the Bureau of Prison’s most dangerous inmates, her lawyers wrote Tuesday in a letter. “She is overmanaged under conditions more restrictive than inmates housed in 10South, the most restrictive unit in the MCC; or individuals convicted of terrorism and capital murder and incarcerated at FCI Florence ADMAX, the most restrictive facility operated by the BOP,” the filing states. The letter is in response to a Monday filing from federal prosecutors informing the judge that Maxwell had a COVID-19 scare after possible exposure to an infected staffer at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn and was placed in quarantine. The government’s letter, which said Maxwell had tested negative for the virus, stated that she had received more favorable treatment than other inmates. But the British socialite’s lawyer, Bobbi Sternheim, wrote that just the opposite was true and rattled off a lengthy list of complaints about the conditions...

    Ghislaine Maxwell has two cameras trained on her inside her prison cell at all times to ensure her safety, a friend of her family has revealed to DailyMail.com. The British socialite, who is accused of recruiting 14-year-old girls for Jeffrey Epstein to abuse, has one camera on the ceiling of her 9ft by 6ft cell - and another 4ft away from her. Maxwell is being woken up every three hours and searched to ensure she does not meet the same fate as Epstein, who was found dead in his cell while awaiting trial. After three months in the grim Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, Maxwell has finally been given a bra so she can exercise. Previously she was denied one because she was deemed a suicide risk according to Brian Basham, a British PR veteran who has offered to help get Maxwell out of prison. He is part of what her family have called ‘Operation GGO’, or Get Ghislaine Out, and Basham believes they will be submitting a formal application for bail soon.

Please consider supporting Press Watch by making a donation. I am happy to report that some of the leaders of our top newsrooms seem to have finally realized, at least for the moment, that Donald Trump presents a grave danger to our democracy. It took arguably the most outrageously anti-democratic statement by an American president ever — and nearly a whole news cycle, during which many of us gnashed our teeth — but some major news organizations are finally responding with the strong headlines and alarming rhetoric that the moment requires. : I was particularly impressed with Lester Holt, who led the "NBC Nightly News" with this unstinting language: Tonight: President Trump's unprecedented attack on America's election; the president again today casting doubt on the legitimacy of the upcoming vote after refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses to Joe Biden. And Holt led off one of several related news segments like this: In a year...

    A resident of Salida, Colorado was awoken by 'a loud noise' the night before Suzanne Morphew was reported as missing.  Suzanne, 49, has not been seen since since she reportedly set off on a solo bike ride on Mother's Day, May 10 - although no eyewitnesses have reported seeing her out on the bicycle.   Mary Branson lives next door to a home being built by Suzanne's husband, Barry Morphew, and says she shot out of bed when she heard a strange sound coming from the construction site late on May 9.  'At the very first I thought it was a truck or something maybe parked in my driveway or something, but no, it kept running,' Branson told Fox 21 on Friday.  The alarmed neighbor said the noise sounded like machinery or construction equipment and lasted 'for about half an hour'.

    In a Wednesday piece for Raw Story, Washington Monthly columnist Nancy LeTourneau argued that Donald Trump and the Republican Party have “woken up a sleeping giant” by offending American mothers. The writer pointed to the recent polls that show Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leading Trump by historic margins in the suburbs and noted that the Democratic wins in the 2018 midterms were reportedly driven by successes in the suburbs. She also highlighted that these wins occurred in parallel to the biggest gender gap in American political history. “The term ‘resistance’ has been used to describe everything from Black Lives Matter to the Bernie Sanders campaign,” she wrote. “But we must never forget the role that women (especially mothers) played. It all started with the Women’s March the same weekend that Trump was inaugurated.” LeTourneau noted that Trump’s treatment of immigrant children caused some white evangelical mothers in Texas to speak out against him and pointed to the mothers who showed up in Portland, Orgon last weekend to protest police brutality. She said she was not surprised given the “Mothers...
    SOMETIMES it takes one terrible event for every-one to see the true nature of a country’s leadership.
