A three-judge board from California's 2nd Area Court of Request found that a lower court ought to not have rejected the claims of Swim Robson and James Safechuck which the men can truly claim that the two Jackson-owned enterprises that were named as respondents within the cases had a obligation to ensure them.

I don’t think that his crimes against me are worthy of incarceration,' Daniels told Piers Morgan

The adult film star sat down with Fox Nation host Piers Morgan to discuss Trump's indictment in connection with hush money payments she received leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
Specific to my case, I don’t think that his crimes against me are worthy of incarceration," Daniels said on "Piers Morgan Uncensored."

"I feel like the other things he has done, if he is found guilty, absolutely," Daniels continued. "A bigger problem is that if these allegations against him, or whatever allegations that we don’t know yet, he is found guilty or the evidence suggests that he is or whatever, and he doesn’t… it opens the door for other people to think they can get away with doing that and worse."

Trump has pleaded not guilty to falsifying business records related to alleged hush-money payments to Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential campaign. He was arraigned Tuesday in New York City, after being indicted on 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

Biden immediately calls for Congress to act after deadly Louisville shooting

Police confirmed five people were killed in the shooting with a number of others injured
President Biden reacted to Monday's deadly shooting in Louisville, Kentucky by calling for Congress to take action while shining the spotlight on Republicans who have so far resisted any erosion of Americans' Second Amendment rights.

"Once again, our nation mourns after a senseless act of gun violence – Jill and I pray for the lives lost and impacted by today's shooting," Biden wrote on Twitter just hours after the shooting.

Too many Americans are paying for the price of inaction with their lives. When will Republicans in Congress act to protect our communities?" he added.

According to the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department, five people were killed – including the gunman – and eight injured following a shooting at a building that houses an Old National Bank location.



The U.S. says it is very confident that it can protect its interests in the Indo-Pacific region, even as China ramps up aggression and surrounds Taiwan.

The U.S. is very confident it can protect American interests in the Indo-Pacific as the Chinese military surrounds Taiwan, the White House said Thursday.

National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby offered the assessment to reporters during a Monday briefing. China is conducting extensive and ongoing military drills around the self-governed island throughout the past week, going so far as to simulate strikes on the island this past weekend.

"How does the U.S. see these latest Chinese military exercises and is the U.S. confident that Taiwan and help from the U.S. could continue to deter China from a military solution?" a reporter asked. "Their saber-rattling as we call it was a lot more than sabers, and it's more than rattling."

"We're monitoring the exercises closely, as you might imagine," Kirby responded, adding that they were a needless reaction to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen's recent visit to the U.S. that sparked angry warnings from China.

Interpol confirms arrest of crypto fugitive Do Kwon in Montenegro

 Kwon, a South Korean national, founded the blockchain platform behind the TerraUSD stablecoin and its sister coin Luna. Both coins lost their value in a matter of days in May 2022, wiping about $40 billion from the crypto market and setting off panic across the speculative sector.

Kwon’s identity was confirmed through a fingerprint match, Interpol’s national central bureau in Seoul told CNN on Friday.

A day earlier, Montenegrin Internal Affairs Minister Filip Adžić wrote on social media that a man believed to be Kwon was arrested in the capital Podgorica.

“He was arrested at the airport with counterfeit documentation and is wanted by several countries, including the USA, South Korea, and Singapore,” Adžić said in a Facebook post.

Kwon was based in Singapore while running the blockchain platform Terraform Labs. Seoul prosecutors told CNN in December that the crypto entrepreneur was believed to be in Serbia, where he was in hiding after leaving Singapore via Dubai.

Iranian authorities are to use cameras in public places to identify women who violate the country’s hijab law.

 Women in Iran risk arrest for not covering their hair. Many have been defying the mandatory dress code as part of the widespread protests that followed the death of a young woman in custody for allegedly violating hijab rules.

Authorities, though, show no sign of backing down on the issue.

“In an innovative measure and in order to prevent tension and conflicts in implementing the hijab law, Iranian police will use smart cameras in public places to identify people who break the norms,” the state-aligned Tasnim news agency quoted police as saying.

After the women have been identified, they would be sent warning messages which detail the specific time and place they had “violated” the law, according to Tasnim.

“In the context of preserving values, protecting family privacy and maintaining the mental health and peace of mind of the community, any kind of individual or collective behavior against the law, will not be tolerated,” Tasnim reported.

Up to 10 people trapped after building collapses in Marseille.

 A “violent explosion” at around 12:30am local time is believed to be the cause of the collapse, according to Marseille Mayor Benoît Payan. Investigations are ongoing.

Between four and 10 people are believed to be trapped under rubble in the southern French port city of Marseille after a building collapsed early on Sunday, according to French authorities.

Eighty people have already been evacuated, rescuers told CNN affiliate BFMTV.

Efforts are being complicated by the dangerous situation on the ground with rubble having to be removed before the fire can be fully put out, French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin told BFM, during a visit to the scene.

Darmanin said rescuers are also concerned about firefighting water endangering the lives of any buried survivors.

At least 44 killed in Burkina Faso attacks

At least 44 civilians were killed in two separate attacks on villages in northern Burkina Faso, authorities there said.

A local governor, Rodolphe Sorgho, blamed terrorists for the “despicable and barbaic” attacks, without naming a specific group.

In a statement Sorgho gave his “sincere condolences to the grieving families and wishes a rapid recovery to the wounded.”

Few other details were available about the incidents, but a resident of one of the villages told AFP “a large number of terrorists” attacked late on Thursday, with gunfire sounding throughout the night.

Burkina Faso is one of the world’s poorest counties and has become the epicenter of violence carried out by Islamist militants linked to al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

The violence began in neighboring Mali in 2012 but has since spread across the arid expanse of the Sahel region south of the Sahara Desert.

US probes crash involving Tesla that hit student leaving bus


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Friday that it will probe the March 15 crash in Halifax County, North Carolina, that injured a 17-year-old student. The State Highway Patrol said the driver of the 2022 Tesla Model Y, a 51-year-old male, failed to stop for the bus, which was displaying all of its activated warning devices.

Sending special investigation teams to crashes means that the agency suspects the Teslas were operating systems that can handle some aspects of driving, including Autopilot and “Full Self-Driving.” Despite the names, Tesla says these are driver-assist systems and that drivers must be ready to intervene at all times.

A message was left Friday seeking comment from Tesla.

Tillman Mitchell, a student at the Haliwa-Saponi Tribal School in Hollister, had just exited the bus and was walking across the street to his house when he was hit, according to the Highway Patrol.

Republican legislators in Kansas have approved a proposal to end gender-affirming care for transgender youth

 The Kansas House voted 70-52 to pass a bill requiring the state's medical board to revoke the licenses of doctors who provide gender-affirming care to minors, even though many professionals who deal with transgender youth see such care as vital for preservation of mental health and to prevent suicides. The Senate then voted 23-12 to approve the measure, sending it to Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly.

The governor is expected to veto it, having promised LGBTQ youth during a Statehouse lobbying day last month that she would protect their rights and reject any measure "that aims to harm or discriminate against you.” Supporters do not have the two-thirds majorities in both chambers needed to override a veto.

LGBTQ-rights advocates believe they're seeing a national effort to erase transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming and gender fluid people from American society, at least legally. Dr. Beth Oller, a family physician in a small northwestern Kansas town who provides gender-affirming care, saw GOP lawmakers going “in search of a dog whistle” to unite their party.

“This one was a winner because they found it palatable to strip rights from a population that was small and did not affect most of them,” she said in an email Thursday night. “They delude themselves with groupthink so that they can pretend this isn’t about hate but about protection, but we know the truth.”

Tennessee House ousts 2 Democratic lawmakers.


Former state Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson were expelled from the Tennessee legislature Thursday after Republicans determined they breached the body's rules of decorum -- but their political careers are not necessarily over. After the Covenant school shooting in Nashville that left six people dead, Jones and Pearson, along with state Rep. Gloria Johnson, stood at the well of the Tennessee House chamber last week to demand action. Leading chants, the trio joined thousands of protesters who descended on the state Capitol calling for tighter gun laws. While Johnson survived expulsion from the Republican-controlled House by only one vote, Jones and Pearson were removed and will not participate for the remainder of the legislative session. But the two are not prohibited from holding office again and could even run for their newly-vacated seats. Here's what could be next for the ousted lawmakers and the state of Tennessee.

FBI and Army members raided the wrong hotel


Members of the FBI and the US Army Special Operations Command who were conducting a training exercise in downtown Boston raided the wrong hotel room and detained the person inside before realizing their mistake, the FBI said in a statement to CNN.

The FBI said its Boston division was helping the military with a training exercise around 10 p.m. Tuesday “to simulate a situation their personnel might encounter in a deployed environment.

Trump answered, “Not guilty

Donald Trump pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to his alleged role in hush money payments toward the end of his 2016 presidential campaign — the first time a former president has had to plead to criminal charges.

The indictment was unsealed in a proceeding before Judge Juan Merchan in criminal court in Manhattan. Trump was flanked by his lawyers inside the courtroom as prosecutors outlined their case against him, alleging he made covert and illegal payments in order to impact the 2016 election. He faces a maximum of four years in prison if convicted.

Asked for his plea, Trump answered, “Not guilty.”

Prosecutor Chris Conroy told the court that Trump engaged in an  “illegal conspiracy” to aid his campaign and “undermine the election”

The statement of facts compiled by prosecutors in conjunction with the indictment said Trump “repeatedly and fraudulently falsified New York business records to conceal criminal conduct that hid damaging information from the voting public during the 2016 presidential election.”

It outlined three individuals who received hush money payments: adult film star Stormy Daniels, Playboy model Karen McDougal and a former Trump Tower doorman who’d claimed to have a story about a child Trump had out of wedlock.

Daniels was paid $130,000 by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, while McDougal and the doorman were paid $150,000 and $30,000 respectively by AMI, the publishers of the National Enquirer.

The Enquirer later concluded that the doorman story was not true, and wanted to release the doorman from the agreement, but held off on doing so until after the election at the request of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, prosecutors said. The court filing said Trump thanked AMI CEO David Pecker for his help by inviting him to dinner at the White House in the summer of 2017.

The indictment said the falsified records Trump signed off on were all made in 2017, when he was president. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg told reporters the false statements were "made to cover up other crimes," including violations of New York election law and federal campaign finance limits.

The legal troubles, media spectacle and porn-star-hush-money salaciousness at the heart of the case are a new chapter for the New York tycoon-turned-TV-star-turned-politician, whose career has careened from scandal to success for four decades. This time, unlike his bankrupted casinos or failed marriages, many of Trump’s supporters and detractors argue that the fate of American democracy is hanging in the balance as the former president increasingly conflates any legal woes as an effort to illegitimately deny him a return to power.

Conroy also told the judge they were “very concerned” about Trump’s inflammatory social media posts about Bragg, other prosecutors and the judge, saying they could have an impact on potential effects on jurors and witnesses.

Buhari seeks partnership with EU to stop the mass migrations of Nigerian youth


President Muhammadu Buhari has moved to stop the mass

migration of Nigerian youth as he laments that the trend is

'draining Africa's talent pool'.

The president who spoke in Brussels, Belgium, at the 6th EU-

AFRICA, is seeking partnership with European countries to

stop the trend.

According to an article published on the Politico,

online/offline magazine, Buhari said, "By 2050, Africa's

population of 1.3 billion is set to double, making upa quarter of

the world's total. My country, Nigeria, is set to double its

population to 400 milion by then, surpassing the United States

to become the third-largest nation in the world.

This means a huge youthful market right on Europe's doorstep

and - with increased trade - a growing middle class with

money to spend.

However, despite burgeoning possibility, irregular northward

migration from my continent drains Africa's talent pool, while

provoking political crlses in the EU. Despite its best efforts,

Europe will not find a sustainable remedy to this problem by

further reinforcing its Fortress Europe approach.

Instead, more opportunities must be created for Africans at

home, providing alternatives to the decision to take a life-

thre#tening boat journey in order to seek them elsewhere. The

relationship between the EU and Africa must be rebalanced to

power job creation. Unfortunately, today's arrangements do just

the opposite.

For instance, subsidy-driven surpluses of European milk are

powdered and sent to Africa, decimating its dairy industry. It is

a similar story when it comes to wheat and poultry production.

Despite having the most underutilised arable land in the world,

Africa remains a net food importer."

The president noted that over €50 billion is pushed into

markets in Europe to help them produce cheaper food. This, he

explained, keeps Africa at the losing end.

With its main export market distorted against them, African

countries are deprived of foreign exchange, and investment in

agriculture is stifled." Buhari said

China has announced that it will allow each couple to have up to three children

 It comes after a once-in-a-decade census showed that China's population grew at its slowest pace in decades. 

This added pressure on Beijing to boost measures for couples to have more babies and avert a population decline.

It was widely expected after the census data results were released that China would relax its family policy rules.

China's census, released earlier this month, showed that around 12 million babies were born last year - a significant decrease from the 18 million in 2016, and the lowest number of births recorded since the 1960s.

Reacting to presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu’s claim that he fell apart with the Presidency on account of being denied contract, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has clarified that his recommendation of three contractors to President Muhammadu Buhari to stem the tide of insecurity in Nigeria during his first term was not drivenby pecuniary motive.

The media aide had alleged that the Catholic cleric took three men to his boss for an unsuccessful project.

But responding during a ministration, Mbaka explained: “I took three contractors to the President and the reason was to tackle insecurity during Buhari’s first term.”

He continued: “In Nigeria, if you say the truth, they attack you. I’m not discouraged and I have been waiting for them to challenge everything I said. Challenge the truth, whether there is insecurity or not.null
