    Joe Buck’s necessities for the next two weeks: one giant suitcase, two garment bags, plenty of room service and at least nine novel coronavirus tests. That’s the price of entry for the unusual stretch he is in, calling what could be 13 baseball games and four football games in 18 days. As the sports schedule has been scrambled this fall by the pandemic, Buck, the lead play-by-play announcer for Fox Sports’s baseball and football coverage, has seen his itinerary warped, too.

    FOX broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman don’t appear to be big fans of military pregame flyovers at NFL games. In a video obtained by Defector media, Buck and Aikman, who apparently didn’t know they were being recorded, could be heard on a hot mic before the start of Sunday’s Packers-Bucs game mocking the pregame flyover as a waste of money by the government. TROY AIKMAN: That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover. JOE BUCK: That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work! AIKMAN: That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll...
  • Ed Buck Pleads Not Guilty to Four New Felony Charges

    Ed Buck pleaded not guilty today to an updated indictment charging him with multiple felonies, including giving drugs to Gemmel Moore, a 26-year-old Black man who overdosed and died at Buck’s West Hollywood apartment after being enticed across state lines for prostitution. A bail reconsideration hearing was set for Sept. 25, at which time defense attorneys are expected to argue that Buck should be released to await trial due to the COVID-19 pandemic currently moving through jails and prisons. Buck, 66, has offered to put up a $400,000 signature bond and submit to electronic monitoring and home confinement, court papers...

    Ed Buck is asking that he be released from custody while he awaits trial, which is scheduled for January 2021. Buck, 65, argues that because of his age (he is 65) he faces serious health risks if he were to become infected with COVID-19 while in federal prison. (snip) Buck, a white gay man known for his contributions to the local, state and federal election campaigns of Democratic Party candidates in West Hollywood, was arrested by LA County Sheriff’s Department deputies on Sept. 17 and handed over to federal authorities. They charged him with distributing methamphetamine resulting in the deaths...

    Rep.

"The Justice Department needs to open an investigation into who is funding these violent riots," Buck tweeted.Buck had first addressed the issue after Paul and his wife Kelley were accosted while returning from the RNC, on the way back to their hotel.

    Without a doubt, there are Republicans who are not entirely honest. But what also seems true is that Democrats and their allies far outpace their political opponents in the realm of wrongdoing, especially when it comes to kinky stuff. You may recall the name of Southern California resident Ed Buck, the Democrat mega-donor who has given to Leftists like Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, and Ted Lieu. In January 2019, authorities in California reopened a criminal probe involving Buck after a second black man was found dead in a West Hollywood apartment owned by Buck in 18 months. UPI reported: Buck,...

    Rep. Ken Buck told Just the News that the national debt is $30 trillion when the actions that the Federal Reserve has taken during the pandemic are factored into the total. "This troubles me greatly but all I see is more spending. So how high do we get? We are going to continue to spend until the markets say enough is enough and nobody buys the bonds and then we have the cliff that we go off of," Buck said during an exclusive interview. "So I hope long before then we act responsibly and dial this back. But the reality...

    Disgraced Democratic donor Ed Buck has been charged with four more felonies, including enticing victims to travel interstate for prostitution. The Justice Department announced Tuesday that a Los Angeles federal grand jury returned an updated indictment with the additional felony charges, bringing a total of nine counts against Buck, 65, before he is scheduled to head to trial in January. Prosecutors have alleged Buck operated a drug den in his West Hollywood home, where he administered methamphetamine to men against their will during sexual encounters. Among the new charges, prosecutors claim Buck knowingly lured one of his victims, Gemmel Moore,...

    Holding homemade signs, a crowd has gathered in downtown L.A. nearly every Wednesday for two and a half years, screaming a familiar chant. “Jackie Lacey must go! Jackie Lacey will go!” **SNIP** That “caught on camera” moment, however, played out at her home, only that it was her husband on the video. “Good morning” Abdullah said to David Lacey, who was pointing a gun at her and others. “Get off of my porch!” he replied sternly. “Are you going to shoot me?” Abdullah asked. “I will shoot you, get off of my porch!” David Lacey said. “I don’t care who...

    Ed Buck’s Laurel Avenue apartment apparently is still empty and on the market. But his cell at the federal Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles will remain occupied for longer than originally anticipated. That’s because the date of Buck’s trial on two federal charges of providing drugs resulting in death of two black men and three counts of distributing methamphetamine to young black men, once scheduled for Nov. 26, 2019, then moved to Aug. 4 of this year now has been postponed to Jan. 19, 2021. Buck, 65, is a white gay man known for his donations to Democratic...

    Stadiums may be empty when/if football starts its season this fall, but some games probably won’t look or sound that way. Fox is exploring ways to fill the empty National Football League venues with digitally-added fans and crowd noises, Fox Sports announcer Joe Buck said during an interview on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show. “I think Fox and these networks have to put crowd noise under us to make it a normal viewing experience at home,” USA Today reports Buck said, adding that the audio component was “pretty much a done deal.” He added: “I think whoever’s going to be...

    The family of a man who Democratic donor Ed Buck allegedly killed by supplying him with methamphetamine filed a wrongful death suit in civil court against him, a report said. In the suit, sisters of Timothy Dean claim Buck “forcibly and repeatedly injected Mr. Dean with crystal methamphetamine” against his will, NBC reported. Dean died of a meth overdose in Buck’s West Hollywood home in January 2019. Buck pleaded not guilty in October to federal charges that he caused the overdose deaths of Dean and another man, Gemmel Moore. In their suit, Dean’s family claim Buck has, “a history of...

    The date of Ed Buck’s federal criminal trial has been moved from Nov. 26 of this year to Aug. 4, 2020. Buck, who is being held in Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles, will remain in prison until then. U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder agreed to delay the hearing, citing, among other reasons, that “the case is so unusual and so complex, due to the nature of the prosecution and the voluminous discovery, that it is unreasonable to expect preparation for pre-trial proceedings or for the trial itself within the time limits established by the Speedy Trial Act.” Buck,...

    West Hollywood City Councilman John Duran said Ed Buck once hung an effigy of him in a park. Some municipal employees said they refused to meet alone with him, and he unnerved two political foes so much at council meetings that sheriff’s deputies accompanied them to their cars afterward. **SNIP** Buck’s political influence has drawn intense criticism, especially from black and LGBTQ activists who believe his status as a white Democratic donor initially insulated him from prosecution and that influential people made excuses for a man whose volatility was on public display for years. Jasmyne Cannick, a black political consultant...

    emocratic Party fundraiser and activist Ed Buck was ordered Thursday to remain jailed pending his next federal court appearance on the charge of providing the methamphetamine that caused the overdose death of a man inside Buck’s West Hollywood apartment in July 2017. At a brief detention hearing in Los Angeles federal court, Buck did not contest the government’s motion asking that he remain in custody. “I don’t see anything that would alleviate danger,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Patrick J. Walsh said, indicating that Buck presents a danger to the community, one of the primary issues discussed at federal detention hearings. Buck...

    WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — When the lifeless body of a 26-year-old man was found two years ago in the apartment of Ed Buck, a small-time Democratic donor and political activist, the authorities described it as an accidental overdose. Then, in January, a 55-year-old fashion consultant died in Mr. Buck’s home in exactly the same way. Once again, he faced no charges. On Tuesday, after a third man survived a methamphetamine overdose in the apartment, Mr. Buck was finally arrested and hauled away in the back of a police car. The sordid facts — and Mr. Buck’s seeming double life —...

    Prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house, with prosecutors calling him a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction and homelessness. Buck was charged with one count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting a 37-year-old man, who overdosed but survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11. That latest incident comes after two men were found dead in his Laurel Avenue apartment in Hollywood. In both...
