    The U.S. Military Academy at West Point said Friday it concluded after an internal investigation that cadets at the Army-Navy game last week did not flash a "white power" symbol on national television. The investigation concluded the cadets were playing the "circle game," where the hand sign is made below someone's waist and — if another person looks at it — the person making the symbol punches the other person. "We investigated this matter thoroughly," Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, 60th superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, said in a news release. "Last Saturday we had reason to believe these...

    Faced with the potential for its stock to fall below $20 on the first day — stripping hundreds of millions from its valuation — top execs pulled the plug as its headstrong CEO declares, "We’re not willing to undervalue our company." It was past 4 p.m. on Sept. 26 and the stock market had closed for the day as WME president Ari Greenburg and other executives sat in a car making their way to the New York Stock Exchange. They were going to preside over the unfurling of a banner bearing the name of his agency’s parent, Endeavor Group Holdings,...
  • Reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley indicted on tax evasion charges

    GEORGIA – Reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley were indicted on Tuesday by a grand jury on tax evasion charges by the Northern District of Georgia. The 12-count indictment, obtained by CNN, also alleges the Chrisleys committed bank fraud and wire fraud conspiracy, among other offenses. The married couple are stars of the USA Network reality series “Chrisley Knows Best,” which follows their family’s over-the-top lifestyle and activities. Before the indictment was issued, Todd Chrisley took to Instagram to deny the claims, implying the charges are based on evidence presented to investigators by a disgruntled former employee. He alleged...

    US Attorney General William Barr is “livid” that Jeffrey Epstein was apparently able to kill himself in a high-security federal penitentiary in Manhattan, according to a report on Saturday. Barr is “determined to get to the bottom of this,” a source told ABC 7, as the Bureau of Prisons announced that the FBI has launched an investigation into the apparent suicide of the convicted sex offender. The stunning developments come a day after a trove of newly unsealed documents implicated a number of powerful people in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring. “The FBI is investigating the incident,” said the bureau....

    Robert Mueller’s highly anticipated testimony landed with a thud on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, as the former special counsel offered few new details or thoughts on a 22-month investigation that has shadowed President Trump’s White House. Trump and Republicans declared victory after the back-to-back hearings before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees covered live by the broadcast networks for just under seven hours. “I thought we had a very good day today,” Trump told reporters at the White House following the conclusion of the second hearing. “This was a very big day for our country. This was a very big...

    MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" has been hit with a serious one-two punch. One day after finishing May with its worst ratings since Donald Trump took office, the lefty pundit's eponymous program faced a Vanity Fair bombshell report that the New York Times didn’t want its reporters appearing on Maddow's show, not because her ratings were down, but because she was too far left, even for them. The New York Times had reportedly blocked its reporters from appearing on “Maddow” because the program is too partisan, with one insider from the Grey Lady's newsroom agreeing, telling Fox News “it rubs...

    TUSCALOOSA, AL—Seven-year-old Gloria Hutchins was taken aside by her mother today and informed that thanks to new abortion laws, she may never enjoy the opportunity to kill her offspring. The two shared tears as Hutchin's mother, Heather, explained how, back in the good old days, if she decided she wanted to have sex without any discrepancy or thought, that was totally fine because she could always just end the life she had created. Gloria choked back tears as she learned she would have to conduct herself with some degree of discernment in who she chose as a romantic partner,...

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors cannot use secretly recorded video allegedly showing New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft engaging in massage parlor sex, a judge ruled Monday, striking a serious blow to their case against him and others charged with soliciting prostitutes at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa. In his 10-page ruling, Judge Leonard Hanser wrote that Jupiter police detectives and the judge who issued the search warrant allowing the secret installation of cameras at the spa did not do enough to minimize the invasion of privacy of customers who only received legal massages. Hanser also ruled...

  • Has Trump wrecked our sex life? "Post-Trump Sex Disorder" is real, says sex therapist

    nald Trump has made America's mental health crisis much worse. Beginning with his presidential campaign and through to his third year as president, the United States has experienced an increase in anxiety, suicide, depression, and other mental health problems. The president of the United States is also a role model. His or her behavior influences the public. And as documented by Dr. James Gilligan in his book "Why Some Politicians are More Dangerous Than Others," Trump's assault on the country's mental health is part of a much larger pattern: the Republican Party and the conservative movement have, for decades, advanced...

    MADISON, Wis. - The state Assembly passed a resolution Tuesday to honor prominent black Americans during Black History Month in February — but only after Republicans blocked it until black Democratic lawmakers agreed to remove the name of quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Democratic Rep. David Crowley of Milwaukee, who authored the resolution, called the episode "a textbook example of white privilege" and a "slap in the face." "Many of these people that you don’t agree with will still be in the history books that your children and grandchildren will be reading," Crowley said on the Assembly floor. Kaepernick, who was born...

    A Missouri man sold his firearms made out of scrap metal and garbage to a gun buy-back program… and then used the money to buy a real gun. We call that man a “patriot”. YouTuber Royal Nonesuch made a quick $300 by taking 3 firearms that he’d built out of scrap and selling them back to the state of Missouri. He described two of the pipe guns as the ‘crappiest guns I’ve ever made’ but was still able to successfully sell them off to the program. Watching the video that Nonesuch posted, it was immediately clear that the coordinators of...

    Politics in 2018 is a nightmarish hellscape that is largely devoid of heroes, so let us take a brief moment to revel in the astonishing stupidity of one of its third-tier villains: Jacob Wohl, who you may recognize as the greasy 20-year-old doofus who pops up first in the replies below every other Donald Trump tweet. This delightful tale began on Monday, when the disgraced teenaged hedge fund genius posted a tantalizing hint about a major forthcoming news story: Special counsel Robert Mueller, the evil mastermind behind the insidious left-wing plot to take down Wohl's beloved president, has been hiding...

    What a difference a week can make for the Kansas City Chiefs and what a difference it can make for Sunday Night Football too. Last week, the then unbeaten Chiefs came up short against their likely AFC title rivals the New England Patriots, with the Tom Brady-led crew scratching out a 43-40 win and rising ratings. Last night, the Chiefs took on and took down the Cincinnati Bengals 45-10. Snaring the Chiefs’ sixth win of the season so far, a jaw-dropping part of last night’s came from running back Kareem Hunt who was literally up, up and away with multiple...

    Executives at ABC now believe that their decision to fire Roseanne Barr from their revival of Roseanne was a mistake and the network’s spin-off series The Conners may flop, according to a report from Mail Online. Two senior executives at the network told the outlet that ABC President Channing Dungey’s decision to immediately fire the actress and cancel her show after she made racially charged comments about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a “knee-jerk” decision that they would later regret. “We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her....

    Sen. John McCain's passing has left his Senate seat vacant and waiting to be filled by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican. If she's interested in filling that seat, Meghan McCain would deserve immediate support from conservatives. To be clear, Meghan McCain might not want to be a U.S. senator. And that's fine, no one should ever face pressure to serve in public office unless in the situation of a national emergency. But if McCain is open to replacing her father until a special election can be held in 2020, she would make a great conservative successor to her irreplaceable...
