Despite the quickly growing list of allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, he has vowed today to fight the “smears,” vowing he would not step down, according to TheNew York Times.
“These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse,” Kavanaugh wrote in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination — if allowed to succeed — will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service.”
“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process,” he wrote. “The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last-minute character assassination will not succeed.”
An entire herd of cattle were swept away from a field where they were pastured in Oklahoma. Heavy floodwaters came after more than 13 inches of rain drenched the area, according to an NBC News affiliate.
A video of the incident taken by bystander Alex Spahn and posted to Twitter shows dozens of bovines being overtaken by a forceful flow of water throughout an area of farmland south of Oklahoma City called Fittstown.
Warning: some readers may find the following video disturbing
Spahn posted a series of short comments to go with his video.
“Terrible! I just watched a herd of cattle get swept away under a bridge in floodwaters just south east of Fittstown.
“For those asking, I am unable to provide an update on the status of the cattle.
“I watched them downstream as far as I could and only saw 3-4 make it out before they disappeared from my view.
“Fingers crossed they all make it out in time.”
Kellyanne Conway is defending Judge Kavanaugh against the recent allegations of sexual misconduct against him. According to CBS News, the White House counselor told CBS This Morning that the allegations against the judge are “starting to feel like a vast left-wing conspiracy.”
“I know there’s pent-up demand for women to get their day, women who have been sexually harassed and sexually assaulted, and I personally am very aggrieved for all of them, but we cannot put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man’s shoulders.” She went on to say, “I just don’t think one man’s shoulders should bear decades of the MeToo movement.”
While speaking with Geraldo Rivera Monday, Donald Trump said he’s giving Puerto Rico an “absolute no” on the topic of statehood.
Puerto Rico is a U.S. commonwealth, and has been since 1898, according to NPR. Puerto Rico has held referendums for statehood five times, and voted overwhelmingly in favor of statehood in the most recent election.
But it doesn’t matter. Whether or not Puerto Rico becomes a state is matter for Congress to decide, not the voters in Puerto Rico.
“With the mayor of San Juan as bad as she is,” Trump said while speaking with Rivera Monday, “Puerto Rico shouldn’t be talking about statehood until they get some people that really know what they’re doing.”
In a tweet shared Monday by West Yorkshire Officer Benjamin Pearson, it was reported that police chased down a stolen Volkswagen Golf vehicle. Apparently, the vehicle was stolen in Shipley, a small suburb of West Yorkshire, England. It was a high-speed chase, reaching 100 m.p.h., according to Officer Pearson. Police were reportedly able to finally stop the vehicle, after chasing it for five miles, by using road spikes to bring it to a stop. Pearson’s tweet displayed a picture of the black vehicle stopped on the side of a well-lit road at night, with a police cruiser parked a few feet behind. The license plate of the vehicle in question is blurred in the photo.
At least one government official believes that the U.S. and Israel are ultimately behind an attack that left 25 people dead in Iran over the weekend.
The attack occurred on Saturday, when a group of four people dressed as soldiers opened fire on a military parade in Ahvaz, Iran. Of the 25 people who were killed, 12 were Iranian Revolutionary Guards. This was the deadliest terror attack in Iran in almost 10 years.
Monday was a national day of mourning for Iran following the attack. Iran officials believe that the attack was carried out by militants who were trained by Israel with U.S. support.
Iran and the U.S. have experienced increasingly strained relations in the Trump era, as he chose to pull the U.S. out of a nuclear accord that had been agreed upon by both countries under President Barack Obama.
A 71-year-old Indiana man spent his weekend behind bars after he was arrested for pistol-whipping a friend who had contested him on whether or not Bruno Mars was the artist behind a song they were listening to.
Authorities were called to respond to report of an attack involving a firearm in the Johnson County city of Greenwood late Friday night, September 21. When they arrived at the 2700 block of Reflection Way residence where the assault had allegedly taken place, they were surprised to learn that the incident under investigation involved a trio of good friends who had been hanging out prior to what ensued.
Superstar actress Zendaya took to social media to give props to popular former Viner Gabriel Gundacker for pronouncing her name properly in a recent viral video.
The 22-year-old actress was reacting to 52 seconds long clip Gundacker posted online called “Zendaya is Meechee,” where he sang to posters of the upcoming film “Smallfoot,” that has garnered 4.58 million views at the time this article was written.
Gundacker doesn’t do anything crazy or complicated for the clip to go viral. He simply sings gently to the posters, singing, “Zendaya is Meechee, LeBron James is Gwangi, Danny DeVito is Dorgle, Common is Stonekeeper and Gina Rodriguez is Kolka.”
Gundacker has since dropped the clip on Soundcloud, giving fans another outlet to enjoy the catchy tune.
Stars flooded into Gundacker’s mentions, thanking him for the tune and expressing how much they enjoy that song.
James Roche, a college roommate of Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at Yale University in 1983, told San Francisco television station KGO on Monday that he believes Kavanaugh at the time was “capable” of committing the sexual assault described in a Sunday New Yorker magazine article by another of Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates, Deborah Ramirez.
In the New Yorker article by Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporters Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, Ramirez — now 53 years old and living in Boulder, Colorado — alleges that “Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.”
Kavanaugh denied the allegation as a “smear” and, in a Fox News interview on Monday, claimed that the incident described by Ramirez never took place. An excerpt from Kavanaugh’s Fox News interview appears below on this page.
On September 21st, the husband and two children of tennis star Stephanie Reece were found dead. According to People, Reece received a call that morning that her two children, 15-year-old Harrison, and 13-year-old Shelby were not at school. She alerted the police and after driving to the home of Reece’s ex-husband, Michael Hunn, in Zionsville, Indiana, they discovered the children with fatal gunshot wounds. Hunn was also discovered with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Officials think that Hunn, 50, killed the children as they slept and then shot himself.
In a Monday hearing, the Stormy Daniels case was brought before an L.A. courtroom and Federal District Judge S. James Otero.
According to CNN, the judge appears to be ready to dismiss the case completely. He said that Donald Trump’s April 2018 tweet seems to fall within the boundaries of free speech, a right guaranteed to all Americans through the First Amendment.
Daniels is suing Trump for his tweets about her, which shed doubts on her claims that she was threatened following an affair she had with Trump.
Michael Avenatti, who is serving as counsel for Daniels, said that he could prove that Trump was acting with malice. The Daniels legal team argued that the tweet was “a false statement of fact, and we intent to prove that it’s a false statement of fact.”
As of January 1, 2018, Kazakhstan passed a law in which it would become suitable punishment for someone found guilty of sex crimes against a minor to be castrated. Now the first man to undergo the procedure will face his fate.
The unnamed man from the region of Turkestan will be the first to be chemically castrated for his crimes under the controversial new law, per Unilad. The injections will be supervised by the health ministry.
When the procedure is done, Turkestan will also be the first region in the country where the new law has been taken into full effect. The change to the law came with a whole host of other “legislative amendments aimed at protecting the rights of the child.”
Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev has allocated nearly $27,000 for a total of 2,000 castrations to be carried out on those who have sexually harmed a child in any way.
Julian Saucedo’s arrest was caught on video in a clip that quickly went viral afterwards. He was caught up in an altercation with a group of “unruly teens” and officers from the El Paso Police Department, and was charged with interference with public duties of a police officer.
According to KFoxTV, those charges have now been dropped, per the District Attorney’s office. The charges were dropped on Wednesday, but the District Attorney’s Office only released a statement about the matter on Monday.
“After careful review of the entire case, the case was dismissed because there was not enough evidence to proceed.”
The altercation occurred at the 6700 block of Sambrano Avenue, where police were informed a group of teenagers were inside a supposedly vacant apartment in June this year. When the police arrived on the scene, they saw the group of children and teens leaving the apartment.
Justin Bieber is routinely the subject of tabloid speculation and that hasn’t changed now that he’s engaged to model/television personality Hailey Baldwin. There are lots of rumors about the wedding including a claim that it will take place at the Hillsong Church in Australia.
But celebrity rumor watchdog Gossip Cop is on the case and they report that this story is untrue.
As Gossip Cop reports, NW Magazine alleges that Bieber and Baldwin are planning to host their nuptials down under.
“It would be really meaningful for them to be wed in the church that started it all. Not to mention Hillsong bosses must be absolutely salivating at having them marry in their main church,” an alleged source said. “They’ll be sure to bend over backwards and make sure Justin and Hailey get the wedding of their dreams.”
Soccer fans attending the L.A. Galaxy game on Sunday night against the Seattle Sounders at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles were treated to a special rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner,” sung by 7-year-old Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja.
As reported by Fox News, the little girl belted out the U.S. national anthem with all the confidence in the world, and the pipes to back it up.
Tjandrawidjaja had competed in a competition — the #GalaxySocial Day Instagram Anthem contest — to have the honor to sing the national anthem before the game, and was announced as the winner shortly before she took to the field to demonstrate her singing ability.
The L.A. Galaxy official Twitter account shared the video of the 7-year-old’s performance, captioning it aptly to describe her vocal talents.
“MUST-WATCH: 7-year-old @MaleaEmma delivers one of the best national anthem performances in @StubHubCenter history.”
Mark Judge, who according to sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was the other high school boy in the room as Kavanaugh attacked then 15-year-old Christine Blasey (now Blasey Ford), as Inquisitr noted, issued a statement shortly after the allegation surfaced claiming he had “no memory” of the incident — and then the suburban Washington, D.C.-based right-wing pundit and author disappeared.
“I have no memory of this alleged incident,” Judge said in his lone public statement to date, according to USA Today.”Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes.”
UPDATE: Thomas Ravenel will have a bond hearing at 2 p.m. today, and the complainant in this matter is confirmed to be Nanny Dawn.
This morning former Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel was arrested in Charleston, South Carolina, for assault and battery in the second degree. Ravenel has been under investigation for four months after the nanny for his children alleged that he raped her. Another woman alleged sexual assault after a Tinder date.
FitsNews broke the story that Ravenel was taken into custody early this morning and is being held awaiting arraignment at the Al Cannon Detention Center. A mugshot has been published that was taken at the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office. It is unclear on which matter Ravenel is being held.
Live5 News is quoting jail records to confirm that Ravenel was booked at just after 10 a.m. this morning.
Six Flags St. Louis is really going all out for Halloween this year. The company will be awarding a $300 cash prize to anyone who can spend 30 hours in an actual coffin. Why 30 hours, you ask? CBS News reports that The Six Flags location in St. Louis is commemorating the 30th anniversary of its Fright Fest, an event dedicated to all things scary.
According to the company’s website, six people will be chosen to spend time in the coffin. If they want to win, they won’t be able to leave the claustrophobic coffin — except for pre-scheduled bathroom breaks. Competitors can have a friend stay with them while the theme park is open, though after closing time they’ll be on their own — or joined by the “Fright Fest freaks” who will be creeping around in the night.
One of the most successful shows in the history of Broadway had to deal with a bit of drama recently, after their prop master was arrested for creating a gun in the theater.
One of the puppet masters for The Lion King was arrested after security found him creating a gun on a 3D printer that he had brought to the Minskoff Theatre. Security found the half-made gun on the printer, and ended up calling the police. After police arrived and conducted an investigation, they brought criminal charges against 47-year-old Ilya Vett.
According to the New York Daily News, Vett is a “puppet technician” for the Broadway production of Disney’s The Lion King. Security went into the room where Vett had been working and saw the 3D printer with a half-made gun sitting on it. That was when they contacted the police.
According to USA Today, two women have come forward with allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, saying that he is guilty of sexual misconduct. The first woman to come forward was Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford. The 51-year-old professor claims that Kavanaugh and his classmate Mark Judge locked her in a bedroom at a party in 1982. She said Kavanaugh held her down, held his hand over her mouth so she couldn’t yell or scream for help, and attempted to remove her clothing.
The next woman that came forward, Deborah Ramirez, was a classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Yale University. She said he exposed his genitals to her and shoved his penis in her face at a party their freshman year. She also admits there are gaps in her memory of this event because they were playing a drinking game at the time.
