Trump called Omarosa a “good person” upon her exit from the White House, and all his administration can do now is hope she lives up to his critique when it comes to the aftermath of her departure. Concerns that she may have secretly taped White House meetings have come up today after she’s been taking meetings with some high-profile lawyers who have represented celebrities like Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, according to Fox News.
Omarosa, who usually goes by her first name only, experienced an abrupt ending to her career in the White House last month, and she made promises to share a story about her time spent at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. She’s met with Lisa Bloom, who was Weinstein’s lawyer at one point, and she’s met with Monique Pressley, who once represented Cosby.
These days, many people travel with animals of some sort that help them in their everyday life or even just to remain calm, but flying with them is about to become a bit more of a process. Delta Air Lines has now revealed a stricter set of rules for passengers wishing to fly with service animals or emotional support animals, and they are starting soon.
Seeing as how there is no legal certification needed for service animals, there have been many cases of people just taking their pets with them and putting a vest on them. No proof has been necessary to show that the animal is medically required for the person, and that has caused a number of problems in businesses and in public.
Just days ago, the adoptive father of Sherin Mathews was indicted for her murder by a grand jury. In the indictment, the grand jury determined Wesley Mathews used a “deadly weapon” to end the child’s life. He may now face the death penalty for the October, 2017, crime.
Weeks ago, the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed Sherin died of “homicidal violence,” according to NBC 5 Dallas.
Mathews’ was subsequently charged with capital murder in Sherin’s death after a grand jury found that during the commission of the killing, he “did use a deadly weapon, the exact nature and description of which is not known…,” reports India-West. The indictment further notes that Mathews “intentionally and knowingly” caused Sheirn’s death.
Capital murder is a first-degree felony, which means if Mathews is convicted of the charge, he could face a sentence of life in prison to the death penalty, according to India-West.
Judge Jack Robison interrupted jury deliberations in the trial of a woman accused of child sex trafficking to make a strange declaration — that God had told him the defendant was not guilty.
The incident happened in a state district court in Comal County in Texas, with the interruption taking place while jurors were deliberating on whether Gloria Romero-Perez was guilty of trafficking a 16-year-old girl for sex. Robison apologized to the jury, but said, “when God tells me I gotta do something, I gotta do it,” the Herald-Zeitung reported. The judge then told the jury that God told him that the defendant was not guilty.
The report noted that Judge Robison recused himself from the remainder of the jury proceedings after his remark and another judge took his place for the remainder of the jury’s deliberations.
Police have blocked off an entire section of northern Colorado Springs after reports of an active shooter in the area, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Colorado Springs police officers and SWAT are at the scene and are now conducting a door-to-door search for the gunman. Reports from the area say that the unidentified shooter fired several shots at officers before fleeing.
Authorities have blocked off a large portion of the neighborhood located in north Colorado Springs and have warned residents to shelter in place until further notice.
A reverse-911 call was sent out to advise residents that there is an active police operation in the area.
According to the CSPD blotter report, the suspect is described as a “Caucasian male in his 30’s who is six foot wearing a gray hoodie and light blue jeans.”
CSPD reports that a domestic violence call was received around 3:40 p.m. and a suspect allegedly fired shots at officers.
President Trump has never been one to mince words, and when speaking to the gatherers at the 2018 March for Life, he made it clear that he is against abortion, in spite of his previous views of years past. Though 49 percent of Americans, according to a 2017 Gallup poll, support abortion, Trump wants his administration to be instrumental in overturning the historical ruling of Roe v. Wade so that each state will then be allowed to decide whether or not to ban abortion.
Missing twins Ren and Setina Weddles have been lost for two weeks and their parents remain uncooperative with authorities regarding their whereabouts. The couple is facing child endangerment charges and have been seen smiling and laughing in court as the search continues for the 20-month-old toddlers.
Relatives of the children’s parents, Princess Canez-Walker, 32, and Aaron Weddles, 41, do not understand why the couple is not working with authorities to find the twins, reports CBS 13 Stockton.
Weddles has reportedly told police officers, “do your jobs,” saying that’s what they are “getting paid for,” according to CBS 13 Stockton.
The couple has been seen in court sitting next to one another and smiling, according to Fox 40 Sacramento. Richard Walker, the ex-husband of Canez-Walker, called the display “disgusting.” He and his daughter, Patreona Walker, were present in court last week due to their concern for the twins.
The inquest into the sudden death of Dolores O’Riordan opened Friday in London’s Westminster Coroner’s Court with a lot of question marks. Family, bandmates, friends, and fans all await news of how it is that the 46-year-old star died, but the inquest learned that they must wait longer to find out.
The Cranberries singer of such remarkable songs as “Zombie,” “Dreams,” and “Linger” — O’Riordan wrote or co-wrote all three — was found dead in her London hotel room on Monday morning. She was in London to record a new version of “Zombie.”
A coroner’s officer, Stephen Earl, addressed the inquest and explained the circumstances of the singer, musician, and songwriter’s death, as they are known.
In a decision announced earlier tonight, California Gov. Jerry Brown overturned the parole board’s ruling and will keep convicted killer and Manson family member Leslie Van Houten in prison, according to a Los Angeles Times report.
Van Houten, 68, was 19 when she participated in the brutal August 10, 1969, murders of supermarket executive Leon LaBianca and his wife Rosemary. Van Houten was the youngest member of the Manson family.
The murders took place one day after other Manson family members murdered eight-month pregnant actress Sharon Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski, hair stylist Jay Sebring, coffee heiress Abigail Folger, writer Wojciech Frykowski, and Steven Parent.
As of the morning of Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018, there was indeed a federal government shutdown and every single American needs to know how this affects them. It is not necessarily something that will hit you right away or bother your everyday existence, but the government shutdown could become an issue for you over time. For as long as there is some sort of disagreement on the Mexico-United States border and Donald Trump’s border wall, this will likely remain in place.
For now, it is a bit of a standoff as reported by NBC Washington since the Republicans are not willing to fix the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and the Democrats won’t deal on border security enhancements or give money for the wall. With that being said, it has led to the first government shutdown since 2013.
So, let’s look at government agencies that will remain open during the government shutdown:
Brad Pitt has been under watch lately and making headlines for supposedly beginning to step out on the dating scene, casually enjoying time with various women. While his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, has seemed to swear off men for the time being, as the Independent notes, all eyes are on Brad while he finds his way back into the dating pool.
What the former A-list couple certainly has in common is that they both are making their six children their number one priority ahead of their differences and ahead of any possible romances. The divorce and custody proceedings got off to a rocky start back in 2016 when Jolie blindsided Pitt with her public announcement she was divorcing him, however, the star parents agreed to seal court documents last January and to work together for the sake of the kids.
The Seattle Women’s March demonstration officially began at 10 a.m. PST today with a group of speakers. The event has attracted a large crowd, despite weather concerns. An initial report from US News indicated that tens of thousands of people were expected. The march itself was planned for an 11:30 a.m. start time.
There are no official reports yet that confirm exactly how many people have taken to the streets, but the Seattle Times reported there were several hundred already in attendance more than 90 minutes before things kicked off.
People began arriving as early as 7:30 a.m. The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women led a group prayer at 9 a.m. with Duwamish members Cecile Hansen and Blake Shelafoe. Hansen descends from the city’s namesake, Chief Seattle.
Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies have charged a motorist with DUI after he allegedly fell asleep in a bank drive-thru lane in Spring Hill, Florida, located in the Tampa area.
The bank manager reported banged on the driver’s window for a period of time to get the attention of the motorist in a Hyundai who allegedly had passed out at about 5 p.m. “Upon waking up, the driver asked the bank manager for a burrito before driving away after being informed he was not at Taco Bell,” ABC affiliate WFTS of Tampa Bay reported. The manager then notified police about what he had observed.
Cops responding to the scene at the Bank of America branch found the man, 38, behind the wheel in the bank’s front parking lot with the motor running. After administering field sobriety tests, officers reportedly concluded that the individual was impaired, and arrested him for allegedly driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.
A 21-year-old Pennsylvania man has been arrested after allegedly cutting his female friend in what is being called a bizarre and bloody “Satanic ritual.” As Fox News reports, Kyle Parker allegedly used the words himself to describe the January 10 razor slashing of his unidentified friend-turned-victim, telling her, “I sold your soul to the Devil.”
The headline-grabbing drama reportedly began when Parker allegedly slashed his female pal with a razor during a “heated argument” at his home, cutting her palm. The then-hyperventilating victim reportedly passed out, and when she woke, she claims that Parker was in the midst of using the same razor to slice up one of her calves, and that it had been cut multiple times. After making the discovery, the victim, who has also been referred to as her attacker’s girlfriend, called a friend to pick her up from Kyle Parker’s home.
Two women who were impacted by the death of Richardson, Texas, girl Sherin Mathews have come together to create a proposed law that would harshly penalize parents who leave young children home alone without supervision. In fact, Sherin’s Law would make leaving a child under the age of 9 or 10 alone a felony.
Reena Bana and Shanna Poteet were outraged by Sherin’s death, saying what happened to the 3-year-old should spark a change in Texas law, according to WFAA 8 Dallas.
Currently, the state’s law does not specify an age at which parents can or cannot leave their children alone, reports WFAA 8 Dallas. Attorney Bilal Khaleeq told the local media outlet that Texas leaves the age at which children can be left unsupervised at home up to their “parent’s discretion.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming royal wedding has sent the rumor mill into a frenzy, so much so that there seems to be a new rumor about their impending nuptials every day. One of the speculations is that Prince Harry is going to have his bachelor party in Las Vegas.
As celebrity rumor watchdog Gossip Cop reports, Australia’s Heat is one of the tabloids that’s reported that Harry’s “stag party” will be in Vegas. But the rumor has also appeared on sites like The Daily Star and Pace Vegas.
It looks like the rumor is rooted in the fact that in 2012, Prince Harry was spotted at a rowdy party at the Wynn in Las Vegas. As CNN reported at the time, photos of a naked Prince Harry first appeared on TMZ and quickly circulated around the internet. Harry was playing strip billiards, CNN reports, and he was in a room with other people who were also naked.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence discussed a two-state solution to the centuries-old conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. The assurance was given by Pence to the Egyptian president in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December 2017. The four-hour meeting between the two leaders was the opening diplomatic stop on Pence’s first Middle East tour as U.S. vice president.
Jerusalem being officially recognized by the United States as the capital of Israel has not been well received within the Arab sphere of influence or the greater global community. Pence described Sisi’s objection to the change in Jerusalem’s status as “a disagreement between friends.” Pence also stated, “my perception was that he was encouraged by that message.”
In order to have something positive come out of the tragic murder of Google employee Vanessa Marcotte, her friends and family started the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation to help create a world where women are safe by creating classes and workshops that promote female empowerment including self-defense. The organization provides mentorship opportunities and strives to “challenge and undermine gender stereotypes.
“We need to advocate for a world where women are safe and free to live boldly.”
The Murder Of Vanessa Marcotte
In 2016, Vanessa Marcotte was visiting her mother in Princeton, Massachusetts when during a run in a local park during the day, she was sexually assaulted, killed, and set on fire to destroy evidence. Though the killer burned Marcotte’s hands in an attempt to destroy the DNA under her fingernails from fighting back, eight months later the FBI was able to make a match and arrest a Worcester, Mass. man, Angelo Colon-Ortiz.
A terrifying film showing how Kremlin propaganda on Russian TV has fooled millions of the country’s residents into believing fabricated claims about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has left everyone at Sundance gaping at the complexity of the Russian “fake news” machinery, according to a report in the Washington Post.
The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 29, but tax refunds may be slower than usual this year. Not only is there a delay for taxpayers who claim certain tax credits, the government shutdown may play a huge role in the timely processing of tax returns.
A tax refund delay is not good news if you are earmarking your refund check to pay off bills, buy a car, or take a much-needed vacation. Even if you file early, you may not see the refund in your bank account until late February — and that’s assuming you don’t have any glaring errors and the government shutdown doesn’t last long.
Here are three reasons why your tax refund could be delayed this year.
