On Friday’s Access Hollywood, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King responded to the fact that she had recently vacationed in Tahiti with, among others, the Obama family, pathetically claiming that it was “not a political statement” and no big deal since her “friends” are out of the White House. “Gayle’s Obama vacation under fire. Welcome to Access Hollywood. Did vacationing on a yachet with the Obamas get Gayle King in hot water with her CBS colleagues,” reported Access Hollywood co-host and former Today newsreader Natalie Morales. (Video) Morales’s fellow co-host Liz Hernandez added: “As a co-anchor of CBS This Morning,
President Donald Trump will welcome members of the conservative media for a small reception at the White House on Monday. Among those attending: One America News Network, The Daily Caller and Breitbart, as well as some columnists and talk radio hosts. “They were neglected the last eight years, and they’re an important medium to communicate to a massively growing number of Americans who, frankly, have grown tired of mainstream media’s coverage,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in an interview. The reception, Spicer said, is part of the administration´s overall push to open up the White House to a
For at least two generations, Willets Point been known as the “Iron Triangle”. A 48-acre site in Queens, in New York City, its small auto repair shops and stores selling used car parts have given thousands of new migrants a vital start in the job market. Now, despite New York City’s status as a so-called sanctuary city for undocumented migrants, the Central American workers who once pitched for business on the corners of Willets Point are disappearing. They fear that under the Trump administration’s hardline policy, they could be rounded up and deported.
Forget calling him a Hollywood director. Clint Eastwood is quickly earning the title of America’s director. Eastwood, who has recently directed films depicting American heroes – from former Navy Seal Chris Kyle in the movie American Sniper, to Sully, on pilot Chelsey Sullenberger´s flawless emergency landing of a jet in the Hudson River so everyone survived.

A federal air marshal left her loaded gun in an airplane restroom during a transatlantic flight to Kennedy Airport — yet she’s still on the job, it was reported Saturday. A passenger found the weapon on Delta Flight 221 from Manchester, England, on April 6, and gave it to a flight attendant who returned it to the marshal, CNN said.

Fox News host Sean Hannity has been forced to deny he sexually harassed a former contributor. Debbie Schlussel said the prime time anchor invited her back to his hotel in Detroit after a debate. After she turned down his advances, she claims she wasn´t invited back on his show. In an interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, she said: ´This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity.´ Her comments came just two days after Bill O´Reilly was fired from Fox News over similar allegations. Hannity

On Friday, the Trump administration asked Obama’s pro-gun control Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, to resign. Murthy was confirmed to the position of Surgeon General on December 15, 2014. The lead-up to the confirmation vote on Murthy focused on his “political activism,” particularly his positions on gun control. Opposition from the NRA and other gun rights groups — together with Republican opposition — actually made it difficult to predict whether Murthy could be confirmed. In fact, he was so pro-gun control that Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), a red state Democratic proponent of gun control, refused to vote for him.
A New York Times report on Saturday claimed that FBI Director James Comey decided to reveal that he was re-opening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton because he suspected Attorney General Loretta Lynch was covering up for her — and because an email found by Russian hackers seemed to support those suspicions. The Times’ investigative report suggests that a U.S. intelligence agency managed to intercept some of what Russian hackers were stealing — and that one document, “described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would
It is said that the rich man thinks only about money. But, in truth it is the poor man who can think of nothing else. In “Asia’s (most expensive) world city”, you would be surprised who considers themselves to be poor. You can’t measure or hide behind anecdotal evidence showing the deteriorating quality of Hong Kong’s basket of economic goods that constitute quality of life. A locally based senior executive at an international asset manager, frustrated at paying HK$68,000 a month for a flat in Aberdeen for his wife and two kids, decided to move to the suburbs of Taipei where
Bergenfield — Two brothers allegedly attacked a Bergenfield police officer who was investigating a double-parked vehicle in the borough Saturday, an incident that led police to criticize the state´s bail reform law after authorities say one of the assailants was released the same day. Several men took off as Officer Adam Fingeroth stopped to check the vehicle on Howard Drive around 12:30 a.m., according to police. The driver, Junior Jimenez-Mariano, 21, got out and attacked the officer, knocking both men to the ground. Fingeroth struggled with the driver while Daniel Jimenez-Villanueva, 20, joined the attack, authorities said.
A Muslim woman who has referred to “Zionist trolls” and lauded the “courage” of rock-throwing Palestinians will deliver this year’s keynote address at the commencement ceremony of a New York City university. Linda Sarsour is listed as a featured speaker for the June 1, 2017, graduation at CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy, according to the school’s website.

Seoul - A former Korean-American professor was arrested in North Korea last week, becoming the third U.S. citizen to be detained by the communist country as of late, according to sources Sunday. The U.S. citizen, identified only by his surname Kim, was arrested by North Korean authorities on Friday at Pyongyang International Airport on his way out of the country, said the sources, who asked not to be named. Kim, a former professor at the Yanbian University of Science and Technology in his late 50s, has been engaged in aid and relief programs to North Korea.

A controversial federal judge thinks firing squads and guillotines should come back in style as the debate over executions in Arkansas rages on. Ninth Circuit Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski, in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” set to air Sunday, said conducting lethal injections is a sham that masks that fact that people are getting killed. “The use of lethal injection is the way of lying to ourselves, to make it look like executions are peaceful, benign ... like going to sleep,” said Kozinski, who isn’t involved in the Arkansas proceedings. “And they’re not. They’re brutal things.” So then

BOWLER, Wis. — At 85, Betty Putnam-Schiel has trouble standing, but she gets along well enough in her home on the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans´ northern Wisconsin reservation thanks to tribal assistants who do everything from shovel her snow to change her lightbulbs. But maybe not for much longer. Another tribe, the Ho-Chunk Nation, is expanding its nearby casino into a full-fledged resort that would rival the Stockbridge-Munsee´s own casino, threatening the gambling revenue that supports services like Putnam-Schiel´s helpers. The Ho-Chunk say they´re simply trying to provide for their own people. (Please follow posting rules)
Fox News may have sent former CEO Roger Ailes packing in July of last year, but that has not slowed down the female employees at the network who have come forward alleging that they were sexually harassed by the disgraced executive. Another woman´s name was added to that list on Sunday, when CNN host Alisyn Camerota decided to break her silence and speak out, claiming that she too was one of Ailes´ victims. ´Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,´ Camerota announced during an appearance in ´Reliable Sources.´ Camerota, 50, worked at Fox News for 16 years before moving over
When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended

President Donald Trump recently asked for Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy´s resignation. Slate wrote that Murthy had been well-known as an Obamacare supporter and advocate of gun control, saying that “gun violence [is] a public health issue.” Afterward, a hubbub ensued over the resulting advancement of Deputy Surgeon General Rear Adm. Sylvia Trent-Adams to the position, even if only temporarily. The criticism came despite the fact that in a Facebook post announcing his resignation, Murthy wrote that with Trent-Adams as acting surgeon general, the “nation is in capable and compassionate hands”: (FB Post) So why would anyone have a problem

RADICAL anti-fascist protesters have clashed with armed police in Paris after hearing the news that Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron appear to have made it through to the run-off in the French Presidential election. Riot police continue to engage in violent clashes with anti fascist groups who seemingly cannot accept the result of the public vote - which shows Mr Macron won 23.3 per cent of support compared to Ms Le Pen’s estimated 21.7 per cent. Reports say tear gas has been used against the hundreds of protesters, who have also been struck with battens. It appears a peaceful
North Korea is ready to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier with a “single strike” to demonstrate its military muscle, the country’s official newspaper brags in a new editorial. “Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,” Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the country’s ruling Workers’ Party, wrote on Sunday, according to Reuters. President Trump recently ordered the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to head to waters near the Korean peninsula, where it will be joined by two Japanese destroyers for military exercises. The North Korean paper described the American carrier as
A crazy switcheroo led to the voluntary recall Saturday of nearly 4,185 pounds of chicken soup products by the Campbell Soup Company. The cans were labeled as "Campbell´s Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta," but when consumers opened the cans, instead they found "Campbell´s Homestyle Healthy Request Italian-Style Wedding Spinach & Meatballs in Chicken Broth" soup. The mistake was discovered by Campbell´s on Thursday, when the corporate office was contacted by multiple consumers complaining of the wrong product inside the cans. Because of the misbranding and undeclared allergens,
Investigators searching for the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 are confident that they have found the plane’s “most likely” final resting place. The Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) – the country’s national science agency – believes the wreckage is in an area 25,000 sq km north of the original 120,000 sq km search zone. The Boeing 777 jet vanished during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March 2014 with 239 people on board. Despite a huge multinational search operation, the plane´s final resting place has still not been confirmed.
France could face its own ´Frexit´ in the future after far-right leader Marine Le Pen and independent centrist Emmanuel Macron beat the two main parties to go head to head in the upcoming presidential elections. Macron won 23.7 per cent of the vote and Le Pen followed closely behind with 21.7 per cent. But it is thought that Le Pen´s chances of winning are limited as supporters for Republican candidate and third place contender, Francois Fillon, will support Macron. Celebrating his victory, Macron said: ´The French have expressed their desire for change. We´re clearly turning a page in French political
