Body of missing Colorado woman found at husband’s place of work, police say

The body of a pregnant Colorado mom who was killed along with her young daughters was recovered Thursday at the place of work of Chris Watts — the woman’s husband, the children’s father and the man accused of killing them all. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation said authorities found the body of 34-year-old Shanann Watts three days after she was reported missing. Her body was found on the property owned by Anadarko Petroleum, where her husband worked.

Lara Trump blasts Omarosa ‘betrayal,’ calls latest tape a ‘fraud’

Lara Trump is calling the latest tape leak by Omarosa Manigault Newman a ‘betrayal.’  (AP) Lara Trump tore into her old friend Omarosa Manigault Newman on Thursday after she released a tape of the president’s daughter-in-law offering her a job on the 2020 campaign shortly after being fired from the White House. “I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on,” Trump, a senior campaign adviser, said in a statement. She fired back after Manigault Newman appeared on MSNBC and aired excerpts from a tape that appeared to show Lara Trump offering her a job at $180,000 a year to join President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, after she was fired in December 2017. On the tape, Lara Trump appears to make reference to a New York Times...

Cynthia Nixon mocks Cuomo’s remarks bashing America, as ‘Greatgate’ escalates

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing a deluge of criticism for declaring America “was never that great” — with even liberal gubernatorial rival Cynthia Nixon mocking him for what she called a ham-fisted attempt to sound like a progressive. Cuomo sparked gasps from supporters at a bill-signing ceremony on Wednesday when he took a shot at President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, saying: “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.” “We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every America is fully engaged, we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone,” he said. ANDREW CUOMO SHOCKS CROWD, SAYS AMERICA WAS ‘NEVER THAT GREAT’  The remark zipped arou...

UFO speculation surges after North Carolina lake video goes viral

A video of a UFO flying over a North Carolina lake has gone viral, prompting speculation that the object in the video may not be of this world. The exceptionally shaky video, posted by Jason Swing on May 29, was taken over Lake Norman in North Carolina. It has gone viral, having been viewed more than 250,000 times, as viewers scratch their heads trying to make sense of what they are seeing. In the video’s description, Swing says that he was at work at 10:30 a.m. on a rainy day. “Rain finally stopped so we went [to] pick up a boat from Lake Norman,” Swing wrote. “When [I] came around the corner, I saw this thing sitting still, very close.” PILOT WANTED FOR SECRETIVE ‘JANET AIRLINES’ TO FLY TO AREA 51 Naturally, the talk immediately turned to an extr...

Stern of US WW II destroyer discovered near remote Alaskan island: Survivor recounts harrowing day

In 1943, Daryl Weathers was a 19-year-old seaman aboard the destroyer USS Abner Read, which was conducting an anti-submarine patrol in the remote Aleutian Islands. Almost 75 years to the day since the ship’s stern was torn off by a Japanese mine, the 94-year-old describes the harrowing event and the ship’s incredible survival. “I had been in the Navy just a short while,” he told Fox News, recounting the predawn hours of Aug. 18. 1943. “We were on submarine patrol. We were making a figure 8 pattern, we had been doing that for a day and a half.” Suddenly, the ship turned and struck a mine. “Bam! This hit the port quarter, picked up the ship and broke the stern off,” he said, adding that the stern contained sleeping compartments. “The guys were sleeping back there, we lost a lot.” WRECK OF WW...

Manafort case is about Manafort – not Trump or the Trump campaign

Closing arguments ended Wednesday in the federal court trial of Paul Manafort on 18 bank and tax fraud charges. If you’ve been following most media coverage of the trial, you may think it’s somehow connected to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s seemingly endless investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump presidential campaign. After all, Mueller filed the charges against Manafort, who was Donald Trump’s presidential campaign chairman. And, aside from the charges of lying on bank-loan applications, Manafort is charged with failing to pay taxes stemming from his work for a Russian-backed Ukrainian president. Meanwhile, international media attention is focused on this case like it is the trial of the century. So it must be...

Trump supporter says he took beating after protesting Social Distortion singer’s politics

Mike Ness, 56, is the lead singer of the punk rock band Social Distortion.  (Instagram) A supporter of President Trump claims that Mike Ness, lead singer of the rock band Social Distortion, spat on him and repeatedly punched him in the head after he protested Ness’s criticism of the president at a concert. The confrontation allegedly took place July 17 at a show in Sacramento, Calif., when concertgoer Tim Hildebrand, 30, held up his middle finger to convey his disagreement with Ness. The 56-year-old lead singer was “badmouthing President Trump and America,” Hildebrand told CBS 13 Sacramento. “I pretty much said, ‘I paid for your music, not your politics,’” Hildebrand told the station. “I stood pretty much with my silent protest with my middle finger up for the next two so...

Graham calls for special counsel to investigate FBI’s handling of Clinton emails, FISA warrant

Claiming that FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails and the Carter Page FISA warrant were “corrupt to the core,” U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham on Wednesday called for the appointment of a special prosecutor to handle both probes. Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said FBI investigators were “in the tank” for Clinton and the FISA warrant process was abused — possibly in a criminal fashion.  “What do you think Democrats would be saying if a Republican — if the RNC [Republican National Committee] — hired a former British agent to go to Russia to get dirt on [Hillary] Clinton?” Graham asked Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, host of “The Ingraham Angle.” Graham said he’s grown tired of talking about the Clinton email investigation and the 2016 FISA war...

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue says tariffs ‘like weight loss’

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told Fox News on Wednesday that President Trump’s tariffs on imports from China, the European Union and other nations are “a little bit like weight loss … it’s kind of painful to start with, but you’re healthier in the end.” However, Perdue also acknowledged “legitimate anxiety over the tariffs and the pain they’ve caused.” The secretary spoke to Fox News as a set of 10-percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of imported Chinese goods is due to take effect Aug. 23. The proposed tariffs affect more than 6,000 product lines, including seafood, tobacco and components used in products such as car rear-view mirrors and burglar alarms. Beijing has responded by threatening new tariffs of 5 to 25 percent on roug...
