    Robert De Niro's alleged voicemail to Graham Chase Robinson Play Video Robert De Niro routinely subjected his longtime employee to creepy and abusive behavior, including leaving her voicemails threatening “you’re f—ing history” and calling her a “bitch” and a “brat,” an explosive new lawsuit charges. Graham Chase Robinson says for years she was the victim of “gratuitous unwanted physical contact” from the Oscar winner, who also hurled “sexually-charged comments to her” when she worked at his production company, Canal Productions Inc. Robinson’s allegations against the “Taxi Driver” star are levied in a lawsuit filed Thursday in Manhattan federal court for...

    A subway serenade caught on video by an LAPD officer has gotten a lot of attention after the agency posted it on social media Thursday night. A woman with an angelic voice gives the person recording the video an exclusive concert on a solitary subway platform at the Wilshire/Normandie Purple Line Metro station in Koreatown. The woman is seen pulling a cart filled with items and carrying multiple bags while singing the operatic tune. Multiple people told KTLA on Friday that the woman's name is Emily and she is originally from Russia. A retired MTA driver told KTLA that the...

    For years, Shaun King has risen as one of the more high-profile activists of his era and that in turn has led to a growing number of critics from all sides who believed his efforts were questionable. Amid a chorus of dissent, King has released what he has deemed is an independent review of his finances and fundraising efforts to prove that he has not taken any monies for himself or family. The report was published via Medium and features the research work of Tamika Mallory, Co-Chair of The Women’s March and Co-Founder of Justice League NYC and civil rights...

    Fox News contributor Dan Bongino pushed back Monday on Sen. Bernie Sanders calling President Trump "an idiot" for denying the effects of climate change. Bongino responded with laughter on "Fox & Friends," accusing the Democratic senator from Vermont of believing in the "money fairy" for proposing a "Medicare-for-all" plan that he estimates will cost up to $40 trillion over a 10-year period. "We're talking about a guy who can't do first-grade-level math and Donald Trump is an idiot?" Bongino asked, later questioning what jobs Sanders has held outside of politics. It's unclear what prompted Sanders to tweet about Trump and...
  • Trump trashes Beto O'Rourke, tells him to 'be quiet' ahead of El Paso visit

    President Trump issued a fiery tweet late Tuesday for 2020 presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke ahead of his visit to the Democrat's hometown of El Paso, Texas, following last weekend's shooting that left 22 dead. Over the past several days, O'Rourke has slammed the president, who he has placed blame for the massacre. The former congressman declared that Trump is a "racist" and compared his language to Nazi Germany's Third Reich. He also compared Trump's North Carolina rally-- where the "send her back" chant took place-- to "Nuremberg." "That is a leader reveling in the hatred and the racism of the...

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was one of the earlier 2020 candidates to propose breaking up the largest tech companies and potentially having the government regulate them like utilities. It’s a mantra she’s repeated on the campaign trail on a regular basis. But now she’s doubling down on the message with a campaign tactic that may not make the most sense. Her team has put up a massive billboard on the subject, which isn’t all that unusual for a political campaign. It’s the location that makes it peculiar. She put it up right in Silicon Valley near many of the Big...

    Rachel Held Evans, a best-selling Christian author who was unafraid to wade into fierce theological battles over issues such as the role of women, science, LGBT issues and politics on her blog and social media, died Saturday, after spending weeks in the hospital for an infection. She was 37. Her husband Dan, who has been writing health updates, wrote on her blog on Saturday that she had been weaned from an induced coma, but swelling in her brain was not survivable. The hashtag #PrayforRHE became a trending topic on Twitter for Evans, who had two young children, ages 3 and...

    The mayor of South Bend, Indiana and an upstart 2020 presidential candidate has been accused of sexual assault. “My name is Hunter Kelly. I am 21 years old. This is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do. For the past three nights, I have not slept even a single hour. I have vomited eight times,” Kelly said in a Medium blog post. He continued: "I was sexually assaulted by Mayor Pete Buttigieg. I didn’t know who he was back in February, only that he told me he was an important politician. When I started seeing him...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders sidestepped questions Thursday about when he will release his tax returns, with the Vermont independent hinting he could fulfill his six-week old pledge to make public 10 years of tax returns on April 15 -- Tax Day. Yet, as quickly as Sanders suggested that, he appeared to backtrack and wouldn't commit that he would release them then. "Do you know what April 15th is? It's Tax Day," Sanders told CNN on Capitol Hill when asked if there was an issue to releasing his taxes. "So, I think we want to make sure we have...

    New research is casting even more doubt on the legitimacy of bitcoin trading. An analysis published by Bitwise this week shows that 95 percent of bitcoin spot trading is faked by unregulated exchanges. The survey, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, echoes concerns by regulators that cryptocurrency markets are still ripe for manipulation. Bitwise, an asset manager in the process of trying to list the first-ever bitcoin exchange traded fund, said it met with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday to discuss its application. As a part of the process, it submitted analysis that could help regulators cut...

    Kamala Harris (aka Kamel Hump & Harass) is famous for her pompous way of asking questions in Senate hearings. So I scanned Google Images to find a picture of Harris to turn into a meme.  I soon discovered a couple of interesting facts: It's hard to find a picture of Harris standing in a group.  You can find endless pictures of her sitting behind a desk or standing behind a lectern.  Then I looked it up and discovered that she and Chuck Todd could be twins because they are both 5 foot 2 inches tall.  So this is why she...

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – A man pleaded guilty Monday to posing as a doctor at a free clinic in Newport News. He saw nearly two dozen patients at the clinic.

Patel falsely claimed to be licensed to practice medicine in Virginia. To support this claim, court documents said Patel created and submitted false diplomas and certificates concerning his education, training, certifications, and licenses in which he included registration and licensing numbers belonging to various...

    Extinct woolly mammoths, cave lions and other long-gone species may be brought back to lifee in a new Ł4.5million cloning facility in Russia, scientists claim. The new Jurassic Park-style centre will be a "world class paleo-genetic scientific hub" in the world's coldest city, Yakutsk, in the remote north-east of the country. Vladimir Putin's exact plans will be unveiled in September at an investment forum but experts say the centre will aim "to study extinct animals from living cells - and to restore such creatures as the woolly mammoth, woolly rhinoceros, cave lion and breeds of long-gone horses". The cloning laboratories...

    Francis Bows His Knees - Because Orthodox Patriarchs Were Present? During his July 7 visit to Bari, Italy, after meeting with heads of Christian Churches in the Middle East, Pope Francis surprised the public when he knelt down in order to venerate the relics of Saint Nicholas. Commentators believe that Francis did this because of the presence of orthodox and oriental patriarchs who would have been shocked if Francis had not shown any visible sign of veneration standing like a tourist in front of the relics of the saint who enjoys an enormous popularity in the East. Francis knelt down...

Branson was responding to the question, “What do you think those in positions of power should do to address social problems like income inequality?”
