One of the world’s greatest card sharks, true to the old legend about sharks, never stops moving. Seated at a plush green-velvet half-moon card table on the second floor of his San Antonio home, Richard Turner keeps a deck twisting and shuffling in his hands as he describes his decades working to become perhaps the most respected living “card mechanic”—that is, someone who can cheat a card game with sleight of hand. For most of his life, he has practiced an average of fourteen hours a day to master the art of rigging games. He has a closet stuffed with

It’s hard time for Anthony Weiner. The disgraced ex-congressman broke down crying as he was sentenced to 21 months in prison Monday for convincing a high school student to undress and touch herself via Skype in 2016. “This was a serious crime. It’s a serious crime that deserves serious punishment,” Manhattan federal Judge Denise Cote said as the convicted sext fiend dropped his head into his hand and wept. After the courtroom cleared, Weiner sat crying in his chair with his lawyers patting him on the back. His mom also sat crying on the bench behind him, sitting next to Weiner’s brother Jason

This week´s Mainstream Media Scream features the Trump-inspired debate over the National Anthem and NFL players taking a knee to protest it.

EXCLUSIVE: Iranian state television released video footage Friday claiming to show the launch of a new type of medium-range ballistic missile, a few hours after it was displayed during a military parade in Tehran.But it turns out Iran never fired a ballistic missile, sources say.The video released by the Iranians was more than seven months old – dating back to a failed launch in late January, which resulted in the missile exploding shortly after liftoff, according to two U.S. officials. President Trump had originally responded to the reported launch in a late-Saturday tweet, saying, “Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable

Ben Roethlisberger: I personally don’t believe the Anthem is ever the time to make any type of protest," the Super Bowl-winning QB says. Ben Roethlisberger on Monday afternoon released a statement saying he regretted his Pittsburgh Steelers boycotting the national anthem on Sunday. The NFL team was the first of three to not come out for the pre-game ritual.

When Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva was an Army Ranger, he was expected to follow orders. The fact that he didn’t on Sunday came as a surprise to at least one teammate. Villanueva was the only Steeler to be seen during the national anthem yesterday, standing with his right hand over his heart while the rest of the team stayed in the locker room, in what coach Mike Tomlin described as a way to avoid being dragged into a political fight. In a look at the team’s decision-making process by Jacob Klinger of PennLive.com, there was a sense that the Steelers were

At a Friday rally in Alabama, President Donald Trump criticized football players who protest during the national anthem: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b-tch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ (Snip)Here are five reasons the NFL anthem protests are not going as well as the media would like to think. 1.

After NFL teams or players stayed in the locker room, knelt, sat or linked arms during the national anthem before games Sunday, people want to know what the NFL rules say. Are the players required to stand on the field during the national anthem? What does the NFL rule book say? On social media, many people have been cutting and pasting the following excerpt: A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. During the National Anthem, players on

Enrollment at the University of Missouri continues to crater in the wake of the November 2015 race protests, with this year’s incoming class down 33 percent from the one two years ago. Official figures released by the school Wednesday put the freshman class at 4,134 ? up from the university’s initial estimate of 4,009. But enrollment is still down 546 from the fall of 2016 and 2,060 from the fall of 2015. Total enrollment is down nearly 13 percent since 2015.

Huma Abedin is finally free of Anthony Weiner. The long-suffering former Hillary Clinton aide was a no-show at her sext-fiend husband’s sentencing Monday, leaving him to learn of his 21-month prison sentence alone. But Weiner’s soon-to-be ex-wife — and their 5-year-old son, Jordan — were still a presence in the federal courtroom, as he brought them up while making a last-ditch plea for probation. “Jordan has been my salvation. I always told myself if I get that one thing right, all else would be forgiven,” he said. “Your honor, I realize now that by not being honest about how I continued to knock myself

Protesters upended the GOP’s sole hearing on a last-gasp Obamacare repeal right as the gavel fell Monday, forcing its Republican chairman to recess the session until he could get order. “No cuts to Medicaid! Save our liberty!” the protesters chanted repeatedly. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, Utah Republican, tried to restore order by banging the gavel but then waited for Capitol Police to break it up. “If you want a hearing, you better shut up,” Mr. Hatch said. Police could be seen on C-SPAN cameras rolling protesters in wheelchairs out into the hallway. Critics of the bill say millions

You can find many timelines that follow allegations of Russia tampering in the U.S. election and alleged involvement of Trump officials. But I couldn’t find any comprehensive timelines cross-referencing Obama-era surveillance of whistleblowers, journalists and other U.S. citizens with Russia surveillance allegations. So I built one. Please note: temporal proximity of events doesn’t necessarily imply a connection. January 21, 2009: President Obama takes office; pledges unprecedented transparency. April 2009: Someone leaks the unmasked name of Congresswoman Jane Harmon to the press. According to news reports, the Bush administration NSA incidentally recorded and saved Harmon’s phone conversations with pro-Israel lobbyists who were under investigation for

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

´Megyn Kelly Today´ made its debut on NBC Monday, after weeks of aggressive promotion from the network and new host, who appeared on a number of talk shows and made frequent appearances on ´Today´ in the lead up in the premiere. The host, wearing a pink pussy-bow blouse, welcomed her studio audience and spoke about her experience transitioning from the anchor of a prime time news program to her own early morning show.

As they’ve done all weekend, ABC and NBC have been practically apoplectic over President Trump’s comments against the NFL anthem protests Friday and Saturday. After players responded Sunday to Trump’s comments by locking arms or kneeling during the National Anthem, many Americans took to social media to blast the league or their own teams for kneeling, which many see as disrespecting the flag and our country. But ABC didn’t seem to care what regular Americans felt about the protests; instead they invited NFL players, ESPN journalists and celebrities on Monday’s Good Morning America to blast Trump’s comments and defend the

Before Season 4 of Transparent started production, transgender actress Alexandra Billings, who plays Maura’s friend and mentor Davina on the series, walked into the writer’s room to pitch. She said she wanted to be naked. That, of course, is a crude simplification of the process. Billings’ friend and Transparent co-star Trace Lysette suggested that the two of them talk to the show’s writers about their lives and experiences as transgender women, with the hope that they might incorporate them, and therefore a broader reflection of the varied transgender experience, into the show’s storylines. “And I asked for this specifically,” Billings says, talking

Liberals are celebrating the links they see between the antagonists of the new Star Trek and what they believe to be the ideologies of President Trump and his supporters. The “connections” aren’t difficult to find, as co-executive producer Aaron Harberts told Rolling Stone that the “Trump phenomenon” was “front and center in our minds” in creating the new series. In Sunday’s two premiere episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, a Klingon, T’Kuvma, tries to unify the Klingons against Starfleet’s mission for multiculturalism. To sum it up, he believes in isolationism and racial purity…and taking over the world.
