    A 26-year-old woman with dual American and Israeli citizenship who has been jailed in Russia since April after authorities allegedly found nine grams of cannabis in her luggage, has been sentenced to seven and a half years in prison, her sister said. Naama Issachar's sister, Liad Gold, told Fox News on Sunday that her sister was sentenced Friday and the family has reached out to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for her. She said the prime minister called their mother the day of the sentencing to let her know that he will do everything he can to have her released...

    A pair of Russians pretending to be the defense minister of Turkey tricked Sen. Lindsey Graham into two calls where he discussed President Donald Trump and US policy on Turkey, according to reports released Thursday. The call was actually from Alexey Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, who made a name for themselves making prank calls to high profile Americans and Europeans according to Politico, which shared recordings of the calls. The pair go by nicknames Lexus and Vovan, and some people suspect they could have ties to the Kremlin and Russian intelligence services, Politico reports. Graham spokesman Kevin Bishop confirmed the...

    Jane Fonda is willing to go to jail over climate change -- she just got busted outside the U.S. Capitol during a massive protest. Jane was arrested Friday along with a number of other protesters on the steps on the east side of the Capitol building. In video from the demonstration, you see Jane being placed in handcuffs and escorted into a police van. Jane was demonstrating with the group Oil Change International over the climate change crisis. The protest is part of Jane's "Fire Drill Fridays" initiative -- she's vowed to protest outside the Capitol every Friday, rain or...

    President Donald Trump and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) have been in an ongoing battle. Schiff has repeatedly done everything in his power to make sure President Trump is impeached. For more than two years he told the American people he had the smoking gun, the evidence we needed to prove Trump colluded with Russia. His hopes and dreams were crushed when Special Counsel Robert Mueller – the very guy Democrats wanted to investigate the claims – found no collusion took place. Schiff got a "do over" now that a whistleblower came forward claims President Trump threatened Ukrainian...

    A bizarre account of a whistle-blower's efforts to spread a trove of internal information about Deutsche Bank has revealed that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has obtained the information. Val Broeksmit, a musician spent years trying to distribute information from inside the German bank after his father, a top executive there, hanged himself in London. His efforts brought him in contact with journalists and investigators and eventually put him in contact with the California congressman, who President Trump has said should be arrested for treason and mocks with the online moniker 'Liddle.' As outlined in an deep dive...

    A man was severely burned after falling into thermal water near the cone of Old Faithful geyser late Sunday night. Yellowstone National Park officials said in a news release that Cade Edmond Siemers, a 48-year-old U.S. citizen who lives in India, tripped into a hot spring while on an off-boardwalk stroll without a flashlight just before midnight. The release said Siemers suffered severe burns to a significant portion of his body. Siemers, who was staying at the Old Faithful Inn, got himself back to his hotel room and called for help. Rangers and paramedics responded and detected evidence of alcohol...

    [Barf Alert] Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? Yes, this is a serious question, and I dont ask it lightly.Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke just stated his love for and fidelity to Pope Francisso how can one even suggest he thinks Francis is a false pope?I am not engaging in idle speculation, neither do I intend an attack on Cardinal Burke. But the evidence strongly suggests that Cardinal Burke strongly doubts the legitimacy of Franciss papacy. Indeed, my sincere hope and prayer is that I am wrong, and that the cardinal will clarify the situation by publicly affirming his...

    The Duke of Sussex gave an impassioned speech backing teenage activist Greta Thunberg today as he declared the world was in a state of 'emergency' and 'losing' the battle against climate change. Harry arrived by the banks of Botswana's Chobe River in the north of the country this morning to take part in a tree-planting project - straining with dozens of people to get a huge sapling into the ground. The Duke stressed saving the environment was a race against time, adding: 'Led by Greta, the world's children are striking.' He said he could not understand why anyone - 'you,...

    Pope Francis Doesn’t Understand Islam “Is the pope Catholic?” used to be a punch line. Now, sometimes, you almost have to wonder. Of course, I’m not suggesting that Pope Francis is a secret apostate or a Masonic agent. It’s just that he seems dissatisfied with certain Church teachings.What apparently rankles him most are Catholic claims to exclusivity. For example, the belief that all men are saved through Christ can be looked upon as an impediment to interreligious harmony. Francis, for whom interreligious harmony is a top priority, seems to see it that way. Many of his statements seem to suggest...

    Teenage activist Greta Thunberg has won a 83,000 'Alternative Nobel Prize' for her crusade to stop climate change. The 16-year-old is among four people named today as the winners of a Right Livelihood Award, also known as the 'Alternative Nobel.' Thunberg is being recognized 'for inspiring and amplifying political demands for urgent climate action reflecting scientific facts,' the Swedish prize foundation said. The Swedish teenager, who has grabbed the world's attention this week with a fiery speech at the UN, was also hailed for 'personifying the notion that everyone has the power to create change'.

President Trumps son-in-law received a warm reception from Senate Republicans who attended the lunchtime meeting in the Senates historic Mansfield Room. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), an adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Kushners bill would be good for the party...

    In a piece for the magazines October issue, Hill insists that black athletes are doing blacks no good by allowing white colleges to use the students athletic prowess to raise funds to benefit the college. After noting that 2018s top college prospect Kayvon Thibodeaux brought a lot of notoriety to a historically black college when he was looking colleges over, Hill pointed out that the NCAA and the white colleges that participate in the conference make billions a year off the sweat of black athletes. Almost all of these schools are majority white, Hill disparagingly wrote, in fact, black men...

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot clashed with Sen. Ted Cruz over the latest burst of gun violence in the city, claiming Monday that Chicagos decades-long crime problem is actually the fault of Republican-run states like Indiana because they dont have commonsense gun legislation in place. The retort came after Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted that gun control doesnt work and pointed to the Democrat-run city as evidence that disarming law-abiding citizens isnt the answer. His tweet referenced an article reporting that at least 25 people were shot in Chicago during Labor Day weekend amid a continuing crime wave in the city. Stopping...

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a swipe not necessarily at the city of Boston, but at the men marching in the town's Straight Pride parade Saturday. Commenting on a tweeted video that shows mostly men with a few women marching, AOC said it looks like the men might have a "masculinity" problem. "For men who are allegedly so "proud" of being straight, they seem to show real incompetence at attracting women to their event," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "Seems more like a "I-Struggle-With-Masculinity" parade to me. Hope they grow enough over the next year to support / join LGBTQ fam next...

    Mary Taft lives with her two daughters, seven cats and two dogs in a mansion in Panama and she wouldnt have it any other way. But the former teacher and school administrator didnt always know that a Panamanian retirement was in store for her. Indeed, as she consulted with her two adult daughters about where to move, dozens of spots were on the table. We had this blue-sky conversation where can we all go and live together? the 63-year-old former Springfield, Mass., resident recalls. Canada was out because it was too cold. We wanted the tropics because we...
