    The will-she-or-won’t-she brouhaha of Ford showing up will hang over the hearings like Damocles Sword. When Democrats have complete media attention, THE. SHOW.MUST.GO.ON! Nobody should hold their breath over the weekend waiting on Professor Christine Blasey Ford’s Big Tease about showing up for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings next week, because much more than their faces could turn blue. “Will she or won’t she?” has become the front page headline of the day.

    EXCERPT: BRUCE (voice-over): "Despite the President questioning the timing of these allegations, Blasey Ford’s sister-in-law says coming forward at all is not easy." PETERS: "Part of what I understand is that she felt sort of emotionally derailed for a couple of years. I’m sure she’s preparing mentally to embrace her truth and kind of get past the things that have made her feel like she has to hide it and be silent."

    Lena Dunham got a lot of attention last year when she appeared in public looking svelte. Now the actress has said she is heavier and happier. The "Girls" star posted a split image of herself Wednesday showing her at 138 pounds in the past and now at 162 pounds. The 24 pounds has made a difference, Dunham said. (HILARIOUS-TWEET-AT-LINK) "On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work," the caption on the photo read. "Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only...

    A self-styled adventurer is to spend a year living on a melting iceberg off the coast of Greenland to try to draw attention to climate change. In spring next year Alex Bellini, 36, will find a suitable iceberg off the north west of Greenland where he will remain until it melts. He hopes his stunt will raise awareness of the impact of global warming, which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently warned is 'widespread and consequential'.

    The woman who scaled the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday has been identified. Cops say Therese Patricia Okoumou — a 44-year-old immigrant from the Democratic Republic of the Congo — was the person responsible for the Fourth of July protest. She lives in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and is currently in federal custody, according to police sources. Officers from the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit transported her to a federal detention center on Wednesday night following her three-hour standoff with authorities. Her case is being handled by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Saturday told demonstrators in Los Angeles protesting the Trump administration’s immigration policies that anyone who shoots at the lawmaker “better shoot straight.” Waters claimed on Thursday she was forced to pull out of events in Alabama and Texas after she received death threats. “There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas, which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” the outspoken Trump critic said in a statement. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United...

    Actor and comedian Tom Arnold claimed in an interview on Friday to have unreleased recordings of President Trump similar to the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape released during the 2016 election. In an interview with CNN, the actor was asked directly by CNN's Poppy Harlow whether he had "any tapes of the president that the public is not already aware of." "Yes," Arnold responded. Asked whether the unreleased recordings related to Trump's time as host and executive producer of NBC's "The Apprentice," Arnold replied, "We have a lot of things." In an earlier interview with NBC News, Arnold had said of...

    Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a former FOX News contributor, told Anderson Cooper on Wednesday that he is "convinced" Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin has some type of "grip" on President Trump. "I am convinced that Vladimir Putin has some a grip on President Trump," Peters said on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. "And, Anderson, when I first learned of the Steele dossier, it just rang true to me, because that’s how the Russians do things. And before he became a candidate or president, Donald Trump was the perfect target for Russian intelligence." "Here is someone who has no self-control, a...

    HOUSTON -- President Donald Trump spent more than an hour privately Thursday with some of those impacted by a Texas mass school shooting that killed 10 and wounded more than a dozen on May 18. But at least one of the victim's parents came away unimpressed. Rhonda Hart, whose 14-year-old daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, was killed at the school, told The Associated Press that Mr. Trump repeatedly used the word "wacky" to describe the shooter and the trench coat he wore. She said she told Mr. Trump, "Maybe if everyone had access to mental health care, we wouldn't be in the...

    Chelsea Manning alarmed her friends Sunday night with a pair of since-deleted tweets in which she contemplated suicide. The U.S. Senate candidate — a former soldier and whistleblower — who is hoping to unseat a Maryland Democrat shared a jarring photo of what appeared to be her poised to jump from the ledge of an unidentified high-rise building. The figure in the photo was wearing pink pajamas and had painted toenails. It's unclear where the photo was taken.

    In my time on God's Earth, I have been lucky to be present with three of our greatest Presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and another one rising to that status, POTUS, Donald J. Trump. When FDR passed on, I was just five years old, but, I remember our next door neighbor, a German lady and her husband standing outside their home looking at the mounted "Gold Star" for the son they lost during WWII and they were both crying and I did not know why. I asked my Mom why they were crying, and she told me they were...

    Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg says the National Rifle Association is scared of the support he and other young gun control activists have received in the months after the Florida tragedy. In a CNN appearance on Friday, Hogg told Anderson Cooper that president Donald Trump and vice president Mike Pence's appearances at the NRA convention in Dallas serve as proof that the powerful gun lobby is worried about the upcoming midterm elections. The 18-year-old activist said: 'This is the first time they had the president and the vice president come out to the annual convention for the NRA. What they...

    Parkland student survivor Cameron Kasky appeared on CNN this morning to respond to President Trump‘s big speech to the NRA. The speech touched on a lot of topics––including Russia and John Kerry‘s bicycle injury––but it was a very pro-NRA speech. It was somewhat of a shift from comments the President made in that bipartisan meeting with lawmakers weeks ago talking about things like taking guns away from people and dealing with due process later. In response to this, Kasky said today, “He’s a professional liar who will say anything to appease whatever crowd he’s at. If he’s in front of...

    New York: There were chaotic scenes at the closing of the controversial FERGUSON play in Manhattan. The near riot situation took place at the closing night curtain, when cast member, Cedric Benjamin, who plays Michael Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson, urged the standing room audience to turn on their phones and record him as he accused the FERGUSON play of being unbalanced and biased. Benjamin’s rant was shut down by director Jerry Dixon, calling the actor “unprofessional” and ordered him to stop and told the cast the performance was over and they were "dismissed." As the argument and shouting spilled into...

    THIS is the horrifying moment a crazed performance artist sliced flesh from the bodies of two assistants before frying it in a pan and FEEDING it to them on a bizarre live Facebook stream. Cops in Latvia are now probing barmy Arturs Bērziņš's show after a flurry of complaints from disgusted viewers. The 33-year-old artist staged the performance - named 'Eschatology' - on March 6th at a posh museum in capital Riga. Stomach-churning footage shows Bērziņš pulling on a white forensic suit before approaching two assistants with a scalpel. He then cuts a chunk of meat from each of their...
