    Police said Friday they found "no evidence" that officers used excessive force in detaining Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett during an August incident in Las Vegas and that they had reasonable suspicion to make the stop. Bennett has accused police officers of racial profiling, saying they pointed guns at him and used excessive force in the incident, which occurred outside a nightclub after the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor fight on Aug. 26. The body camera of the officer who initially detained Bennett was not turned on. Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Friday that police sorted through 861 videos,...

    Chelsea Manning was turned back at the Canadian-U.S. border because she was convicted of espionage for passing information to Wikileaks, the former U.S. intelligence analyst said on Monday. Manning told Reuters via direct message on Twitter that she drove up to the Canadian border in Lacolle, Quebec, on Thursday evening, planning to vacation in Montreal and Vancouver. She said she was stopped at the border and detained overnight before being handed a report stating she was inadmissible “on grounds of serious criminality,” according to a picture of the report she posted online. The offenses Manning was convicted of under the...

    Who sent out the "loyal supporter" memo? It's like an army of, douchey wind-up cacklers was set upon us. Please stop. Someone tell me what kind of "loyal supporter" Attorney General wakes up one day and recuses himself from the most high profile witch hunt in history - without even the courtesy of a SIMPLE PHONE CALL. I didn't know "Loyal Supporters" ™ made a practice of surprising their bosses in such a way. "But Jeff was there in the beginning." Yes - for himself.

    Record temperatures. Roads cracking and buckling. Planes that can't take off. Power knocked out. Wildfires raging. These are just some of the trying conditions currently roiling America's West Coast, which is in the midst of a record-breaking heatwave. Nervous about how these disruptions will negatively impact the economy and even cost human life? You should be. And there's more to come. Changing weather patterns are the new normal, thanks to decades of trashing the environment and a refusal from many in the party currently controlling Washington, the Republicans -- and their corporate patrons -- to even acknowledge climate change as...

    Comedian Kathy Griffin tearfully apologized in a Friday press conference for posing with a fake bloodied and severed head depicting U.S. President Donald Trump, saying that she felt her career was now over and that Trump "broke" her. Griffin has lost sponsorships and jobs, including her role as co-host of CNN's New Year's Eve coverage with journalist Anderson Cooper, since a photograph and video from the shoot appeared on social media on Tuesday. President Trump said the image of Griffin with the gory mask resembling him was "sick" and that it had traumatized his family, especially his youngest son, 11-year-old...

    Fox News anchor Shepard Smith is speaking out about coming out. Smith, managing editor of the conservative network, revealed last month that while he always knew he was "different" than his peers growing up in Mississippi, he feels he never had the need to out himself - because he was never in. "Someone asked me if Roger Ailes had been abusive to me, and I said, 'No. He was always good to me," and that was the truth," Smith said during a talk at the University of Mississppi's Meek School of Journalism, where he was once a student. "And when...

    An assistant principal at the prestigious Downingtown STEM Academy has been placed on paid leave after being video-recorded cursing at two teenage anti-abortion protesters on school property, telling them that aborted fetuses were “cells,” that he was gay and didn’t “give a [expletive] about Jesus," and then loudly singing "I Love a Parade," apparently to drown out the pair. On April 21, Zach Ruff, 40, dean of academics and student life, confronted the protesters while cars were leaving school at the end of the day. Connor and Lauren Haines, brother and sister, do not attend the academy and are thought...

    Anyone who attacks President Trump is doing Obama's, Clinton's, Pelosi's & Schumer's bidding. Attacking President Trump puts you in with those traitors. President Trump is turning this nation around and if you attack him out of some fantasy you have about what he promised or what he meant or what he literally said because it doesn't match up with your jackass fantasy world then you will be treated as those other, aforementioned, traitors are. Your choice.

    In 49 B.C., Julius Caesar, governor of Gaul, and his legion forded the Rubicon, the dividing line between Gaul and Italy, and marched on Rome, thus declaring civil war. Rome was the last of the free cities that had existed throughout the Mediterranean. They had vanished and finally only Rome, a republic, remained. Her people were free citizens of the republic, not subjects of a single ruler. The Roman Republic of a thousand years ended with Caesar’s invasion and the Roman Empire and rule of emperors – actually dictators – began. The founders of our republic drew in part from...

    Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio announced Monday he will vote to confirm former Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, providing Tillerson with a critical vote to get him through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “I believe the president is entitled to significant deference when it comes to his choices for the cabinet,” Rubio wrote in a Facebook post. “I also believe given the uncertainty surrounding the future direction of our foreign policy that a higher degree of scrutiny is justified in evaluating whoever is nominated to serve as secretary of state.” Rubio said he remained “concerned” about the...

    49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was asked Tuesday if he felt his reception varied by the city he was playing in. That was "very evident," Kaepernick responded. Atlanta was the warmest to him. Buffalo was the worst. "I think that’s something, to me, that was very evident depending on where we were playing," Kaepernick said. "Atlanta was somewhere where I had a lot of support, a lot of people saying they agree with what I’m doing, support it and are happy that I did it. And to keep going, stay strong. "And there’s other places where the fans don’t agree as...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tbh0thQQsvI Look, Hurricane Matthew is going to be bad. Real bad. It's currently a Category 4, and there's a good chance it will be the strongest hurricane to hit the mid- and upper-Atlantic Coast of Florida in years. There will be extensive property damage. The Kennedy Space Center is at serious risk. There's a danger Zika could spread like wildfire in the aftermath. If residents stay, they are putting themselves in extreme peril. Fox News' Shepard Smith just made that abundantly clear on air. Let's go to the videotape: Shep is a Florida Man himself—or at least set up shop...
