    Joy Reid has been slapped with a defamation lawsuit by a California woman named Roslyn La Liberte who alleges the MSNBC host used her social media platform to maliciously spread a false rumor that La Liberte had screamed racist epithets at a teenage boy while attending a city council meeting in June 2018.

    In the federal lawsuit filed in New York, Roslyn La Liberte alleged, “Reid used her substantial social media presence, fame, and reputation…to publish to her many followers that Plaintiff Roslyn La Liberte screamed abhorrent racial slurs at a 14-year-old boy.”

    In June 2018, Reid posted a photo of La Liberte looking upset while talking to 14-year-old Joseph Luevanos with the caption, “He showed up to a rally to defend immigrants…She showed up too, in her MAGA hat, and screamed, ‘You are going to be the first deported’…’dirty Mexican!'”

    Charges have been dropped against Tammy Hedges.

    Tammie Hedges — the North Carolina Good Samaritan who took in over two dozen animals abandoned when their owners fled Hurricane Florence — will not face criminal charges for her actions after all.

    As the old saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished. And as previously reported by the Inquisitr, Tammie Hedges found that out the hard way last week. The animal lover, who before Hurricane Florence was in the process of building a more permanent location for her Crazy’s Claws ‘N Paws shelter, took in 27 cats and dogs whose owners had to leave them behind during the storm.

    For her efforts, she was charged for various crimes.

    President Trump speaks in front of the United Nations.

    President Trump veered off topic to launch an accusation of election meddling against China. His accusations were levied during the United Nations security council’s meeting on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction — on Wednesday, September 26.

    Taking a moment to echo a charge that he has made in the past, Trump is reported to have put aside his focus on Iran during the meeting so that he could briefly address another elephant in the room. He spoke out, claiming that attempts have been made by the Chinese government in order to sway the results of congressional races on the November 6 ballot.

    President Donald Trump’s Department of Education has launched an investigation into a complaint that Yale University discriminates against Asian-American students in its admissions process in order to maintain racial quotas.

    In a letter, the Department of Education told the Asian-American Coalition for Education that it will investigate the group’s 2016 complaint against Yale. The Department of Justice has joined in the probe, the Daily Caller reported.

    In its complaint, the Asian-American Coalition accused Yale University and fellow Ivy League schools Harvard, Brown, and Dartmouth of discriminating against Asians in order to artificially limit Asian representation in its student body.

    The implicit goal is to restrict Asian representation while promoting the representation of other minorities, such as African-Americans and Hispanics, according to the Asian coalition. The group argues that Yale and Harvard’s use of affirmative action programs has hurt Asians in the admissions process.

    French President Emmanuel Macron, left, meets with U.S. President Donald Trump.

    United States President Donald Trump and his French counterpart President Emmanuel Macron did not see eye to eye in talks the two engaged in on Monday evening, according to a senior diplomatic source with knowledge of the meeting.

    Trump was “ranting and venting on trade” with Macron earlier in the week, the aide said, according to reporting from CNN. Trump said that European Union trade policies toward the United States were worse than China during the interaction between the leaders, the same aide added

    For his own part, Macron was respectful to Trump during the meetings, the source said, although he did push back when it was necessary for his own nation’s interests. There was “some rapport” between the two leaders, the source added, “but it’s not what it (once) was.”

    Baby drowns in bathtub and dies as father leaves him alone to play a video game

    A 5-month-old baby died after drowning in a bathtub in Alabama’s Jefferson County on Sunday evening. Authorities said that the baby’s 23-year-old father briefly left the baby in the bath unattended and went to play a video game.

    Upon his return, he found the child unresponsive and immediately called paramedics for help. The child was moved to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, as reported on the website of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

    The father, Cordarius Cotton, has been charged with reckless manslaughter and is currently locked up at the Jefferson County Jail with bond set at $15,000. He can face up to 20 years of imprisonment for his criminal negligence.

    During the investigation, Cotton confessed that he drew a bath for his son and left him there for about an hour. The man started playing a video game and “forgot” about the child.

    It was just about one year ago when Donald Trump said he was thinking of using a “military option” in Venezuela, an idea met with much criticism in the U.S. and in Venezuela itself.

    “As our minister of defense and a Venezuelan citizen, I say it is an act of madness,” said Vladimir Padrino Lopez, Venezuela’s defense minister, as reported by Vanity Fair.

    Trump still hasn’t let go of the idea. As recently as Tuesday, Trump remarked at the United Nations General Assembly that “it’s a regime that, frankly, could be toppled very quickly by the military if the military decides to do that.”

    And he has slowly started to gain support for the idea in Washington. Senator Marco Rubio said last month that there is a “very strong argument” to be made that Venezuela is becoming a security threat.

    A former Army staff sergeant who was charged with the murder of his wife, as well as a Prince William County police officer, has now been found guilty on each charge during his trial for capital murder, according to Fox 5, based in the Washington, D.C., area.

    Now that the 34-year-old Ronald Hamilton has been found guilty of the charges, there is a very real chance that the veteran will be facing the death penalty.

    Law enforcement authorities have revealed that on February 27, 2016, Hamilton fatally shot his wife Crystal along with Ashley Guindon, a 28-year-old Prince William County police officer. Guindon arrived on the scene after Hamilton’s wife called 911 over what was at the time a domestic dispute. The day she was murdered was also Guindon’s first day on the job.

    Two other officers who had arrived on the scene, Jesse Hempen and David McKeown, were wounded during the shooting, but they survived their injuries.

    Viral Hoax Picture Claims To Show Christine Blasey Ford With Hillary Clinton, George Soros

    Separate photos claimed to be of Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, as well as her lawyer, together with George Soros and Hillary Clinton, respectively, are making the rounds on social media, fueling the theory that her allegations are a political hoax.

    The only problem — the pictures themselves are the hoax.

    PolitiFact dug into the photos, which have been gaining traction among conservative circles on social media, which purport to show Ford together with the billionaire Democratic donor, as well as her lawyer behind the former presidential candidate. The report noted that the photos are not doctored, but have misidentified two different people in claims that the person is Ford.

    On Wednesday the Federal Reserve decided to raise interest rates for the third time in 2018, which is the usual behavior in a country with a strong economy and low unemployment. In the hours following the hike, President Donald Trump voiced his displeasure with the federal reserves’ move, an uncommon action by a sitting president, according to reports from CNN Money.

    In a press conference in New York City, Trump made his displeasure very clear, saying, “I am not happy about that. I’d rather pay down debt or do other things, create more jobs, so I’m worried about the fact that they seem to like raising interest rates. We can do other things with the money. But they raised them, and they’re raising them because we’re doing so well.”

    Trump did give credit to families who had been saving their money and thus could collect greater interest on that amount.

    Dan Fogelman, Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Susan Kelechi Watson, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz and Chris Sullivan attend a panel discussion for An Evening With 'This Is Us' at Paramount Studios on August 13, 2018 in Hollywood, California.

    For fans of NBC’s hit show This Is Us, a massive unanswered question lingers over the much-anticipated third season debut: Who is “her?”

    In the third season’s premiere episode “Nine Bucks,” the show jumped forward in time with Randall, played by Sterling K. Brown, and a grown-up Tess, played by Iantha Richardson, prepping to go and see some mysterious person.

    This was originally teased in the Season 2 finale and, frustratingly, will be answered at some point in the future of the show. Fans have another clue to cling to and speculate over, however.

    Randall called Toby, played by Chris Sullivan, asking if he was “coming down.” Viewers then saw a much older Toby in bed with Kate, played by Chrissy Metz, appearing to be absent.

    Maybe Kate is “her?”

    On the other hand, the Season 3 premiere also started Toby and Kate on their journey to conceive via in vitro fertilization, so it’s completely possible “her” is their daughter.

    Donald Trump delays Rosenstein meeting

    President Donald Trump made it very clear on Tuesday that the resignation of Rod Rosenstein is not a sure thing, with Trump instead saying that he “much preferred to keep” the deputy attorney general, despite the recent reports of Rosenstein talking about using the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office, according to reports from USA Today.

    Trump spoke to the press in a news conference following his Wednesday appearance at the United Nations General Assembly, also mentioning that he may push back the meeting for Rosenstein that is scheduled for Thursday. The reason to push back the meeting, which was intended to be a discussion about Rosenstein’s future in the administration, was so that it would not take away from the scheduled Senate hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who will be facing allegations of sexual assault.

    Donald Trump and many Republicans are calling for Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to move forward, while just as many Democrats are crying for a delay. Is the confirmation hearing taking too long? What’s the normal wait time for a nominee to become a justice, anyway?

    Since the Supreme Court was formed, there have been 125 confirmations. Only seven people have declined to serve on the court, according to CNN. President George Washington, who nominated far more Supreme Court justices than any other president, waited only a matter of days before his nominees were confirmed. But things have changed quite a bit since then.

    In the modern era, it’s more common for a period of several weeks to a few months to elapse between nomination and confirmation. Two to three months has been a pretty typical wait time dating back to 1980, according to official United States Senate records.

    Anthony Davis #23 of the New Orleans Pelicans and Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors go for a rebound during Game Five of the Western Conference Semifinals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on May 8, 2018 in Oakland, California.

    New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis told reporters earlier this week that he switched to agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group in an effort to become “the most dominant player in the league,” according to NOLA.com.

    Davis told reporters he personally felt that he was already in the running.

    “In my eyes, I’m the best player in the game,” Davis told reporters when asked what it would take to become the most dominant player. “I really feel that way. Nobody can tell me different.”

    Davis insisted that while he feels he’s that he’s already the most dominant player in the game, it’s now up to him to convince everyone else that he is.

    Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh, sexual assault, sexual misconduct

    On the same day that Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faced an explosive new allegation that he participated in parties where women wee drugged and gang raped while he was in high school in the early 1980s, as The Inquisitr reported, and the day before he is scheduled to testify about another sexual assault allegation against him from that same time period more than 35 years ago, another allegation surfaced that would involve much more recent misconduct by Kavanaugh.

    According to a report by NBC News, the Senate is now looking into an allegation from 1998, when Kavanaugh, then 33, was working on the staff of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, investigating President Bill Clinton over his sexual affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

    Kyle Mulinder was kayaking off the coast of the South Island of New Zealand with a group of friends when he had a rather fishy experience.

    As reported by Cnet, the group was just off the coast of the town of Kaikoura when they noticed something incredible taking place just beneath the surface of the water. A seal and an octopus appeared to be having some kind of argument, with the seal thrashing the octopus about in his mouth.

    For some time, the group watched as the seal and the octopus fought, dipping beneath the water and coming back up to the surface.

    It was then that Mulinder seemed to inadvertently end up in the exact wrong place at the wrong time. The seal breached the water with the octopus in its mouth, and whipped the unsuspecting mollusk right into Mulinder’s face!

    Lego Wheelchair Helps Heal Maryland Zoo Turtle

    A wounded turtle at the Maryland Zoo is now healing and can now move with the help of a customized Lego wheelchair.

    The Maryland Zoo said in a press release that the wild eastern box turtle was found by one the zoo’s workers at the Druid Hill Park in July.

    Ellen Bronson, the zoo’s senior director of animal health, conservation, and research, said that the creature had several fractures at the underside of its shell called the plastron.

    The turtle had to undergo an operation to stabilize its shells. The zoo’s veterinary team used metal bones, surgical wire and sewing clasps to hold the shell fragments together.

    The unique location of the injuries made it difficult for the animal to move while healing.

    Garrett Fraess, a veterinary extern at the zoo, explained that it is important to keep the bottom of the shell off the ground so it can properly heal.

    QAnon conspiracy theorist arrested.

    William Douglas, a fringe-right conspiracy theorist whose bizarre videos regularly satiate the rapacious appetite of his viewers, was arrested by the FBI this past week for threatening to carry out a massacre at YouTube’s headquarters, reports the Daily Beast.

    The FBI is taking the threats very seriously, especially after another YouTuber Nasim Aghdam opened fire on YouTube employees in April of this year over her beliefs that the video-sharing site was deliberately stifling her social media views, per the Telegraph. Douglas had himself promoted Aghdam at the time by sharing a video eulogizing her efforts, making his threats all the more dangerous.

    Among the bizarre videos peddled by William Douglas on YouTube, he rants about debunked alt-right theories including Pizzagate, Flat Eartherism, and QAnon, the last being a ridiculous theory which claims that President Donald Trump is not under investigation for his campaign’s ties with Russia, but that he is investigating “virtually every prominent Democrat and Hollywood figure for Satanic child sex-trafficking.”

    A 350-year-old sketch of a windmill was discovered in Isaac Newton's childhood home.

    Recently discovered new writings penned by Sir Isaac Newton under the alias “Jehovah Sanctus Unus” predict Jesus Christ will return in 2060 and the world will end, reports The Mirror

    Sir Isaac Newton was one supersonic scientist. He was revered in his own lifetime for having one of the biggest brains ever and although he may have been something of an egotistical maniac, he also changed the way we understand the universe and so he can be forgiven for any little personality quirks.

    Newton discovered the laws of gravity, motion, and he also invented calculus. It’s an impressive CV and that’s probably why he was convinced that only he and he alone could understand God’s great creation.

    For a scientist, Newton was extremely religious. He was born into a Puritan-leaning Anglican family but as he grew, he became a deist who believed passionately in a single God who was responsible for creating the universe and the laws of nature.
