    Turns out, some lefties do lose their jobs over blackface incidents. Sure, they’re not politicians -- the media/Democrats don’t give up power that easily. But it’s still kind of fun to see cracks in the not-as-I-do hypocrisy that protects liberals from having to live by their own ever-changing rules. Comic and progressive zealot Sarah Silverman “was recently fired from a film after producers unearthed a still of her in 2007 wearing blackface for a comedy sketch.,” reported the Guardian August 12. Silverman related the story on the The Bill Simmons Podcast, saying that, “at 11pm the night before” she was...

    The US team have dropped their captain Megan Rapinoe in a shock move ahead of tonight's World Cup semi-final clash against England - as Prince William and Holly Willoughby led celebrities sending good luck messages to the Lionesses on social media.

The Stade du Lyon is thronging with thousands of supporters ahead of the 8pm kick-off, as another 10million England fans prepare to watch the action back home on BBC1. Much like...

    The news – plus barbs from social media trolls and other critics -- may be too much for CNN’s Don Lemon to bear much longer. The host of “CNN Tonight” told an audience in New York City on Thursday that the current “level of toxicity” in society – which he attributed to the Trump presidency – has him questioning whether he’ll still be on the air when the 2020 presidential election rolls around, according to reports. “I don’t know if it’s worth this level of toxicity,” the 53-year-old Lemon said about continuing in his current position, the Daily Beast reported.

    In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, police begin evacuating people from their Osage Avenue homes in order to prepare for an operation against MOVE, a radical cult group that had assembled a large arsenal. By the end of the confrontation, 11 people were dead and 61 homes had been burned down. --SNIP-- Authorities soon realized that there was very little they could do to remove MOVE members from their entrenched position. At about 5:30 p.m. on May 13, a small bomb was dropped on the roof of the building in an attempt to destroy their bunker. This proved disastrous, as the roof was...

    A massive fire on Thursday destroyed the upstate New York set of a new HBO series starring Mark Ruffalo and Rosie O’Donnell. The upcoming “I Know This Much Is True,” also featuring Melissa Leo and Juliette Lewis, had been filming in a used car dealership in Ellenville before flames tore through the site at 1 a.m. “There’s nothing left,” general manager Chris Busby told the Poughkeepsie Journal. “It’s a huge loss for us and HBO. They are just as heartbroken over this as we are.”

    ABC News has learned that Richard Holbrooke, the US Special Representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan, has died. On Friday, Holbrooke was rushed to the hospital with a torn aorta. He went through more than 20 hours of surgery. Earlier this evening, speaking at the US State Department, President Obama sang Holbrooke's praises and called him "a tough son of a gun." Holbrooke, 69, was a former ambassador to the United Nations and served as chief negotiator at the Dayton Peace Accords, which ended the war in Bosnia. The New Yorker's George Packer wrote a nice story about Holbrooke last year,...

    A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with the killing of Francesco Cali, a reputed boss of New York's Gambino crime family who was gunned down in a brazen hit this week, the NYPD said. Anthony Camello, of Staten Island, was taken into custody in New Jersey, police said. Investigators anticipate returning him to Staten Island where he will face murder charges for Cali, said Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea. ... The sources said the murder wasn't related to the mob. One source described the man in custody as a “conspiracy theory type” of guy while a second source said...

    The mafia didn’t kill Gambino boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali — a twentysomething Staten Island hothead with a personal beef did, police and sources said Saturday. Anthony Comello, 24, a non-mobster who works odd construction jobs, was named as the suspect who blasted at least ten slugs into Cali, 53, on the street outside the boss’s brick mansion. It was the first assassination of a New York City mob boss since an upstart John Gotti had Gambino boss Paul Castellano whacked outside Sparks Steak House in 1985. Investigators quickly feared a mob war in the making.

    The Gottis are back in town — and the bloodshed could just be beginning. Police are taking a serious look at whether Gambino crime family boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali was whacked in an internal war for control — with one of John Gotti’s brothers and a key associate fresh out of prison and possibly looking to seize power, law enforcement sources told The Post on Thursday. While the motive for the Wednesday hit on Cali outside his Staten Island home remains under investigation, cops were probing whether it was part of a brewing American-vs.-Sicilian power struggle — with Gene...

    A Texas death-row inmate who was executed Thursday for killing his estranged wife's family nearly 30 years ago, uttered cryptic final words before he died. "That'll be five dollars," Billie Wayne Coble, 70, of Waco, reportedly said. He told the five witnesses in attendance to "take care," according to reports. His son, Gordon Coble, pounded on the execution chamber windows and shouted "no" as his father was executed, the Houston Chronicle reported. Another son Dalton joined his brother, the report said. Officers stepped in and say the witnesses continued to resist. They were eventually moved to a courtyard and the...

    Donald Trump has said he was behind the decision not to allow Isis bride Hoda Muthana back into the US. The president claimed responsibility for the move announced by Mike Pompeo on Wednesday. Ms Muthana, of Alabama, left the country to join Isis in Syria in 2014 when she was a university student. Mr Trump tweeted: “I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!” In a statement released on Wednesday, Mr Pompeo said Ms Muthana “does not have any legal basis, no valid US passport, no right...
