Mike Pence’s nephew marries Kellyanne Conway’s cousin in New Jersey: report

Westlake Legal Group wedding-rings Mike Pence's nephew marries Kellyanne Conway's cousin in New Jersey: report fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/mike-pence fox-news/lifestyle/weddings fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace article 31414946-b069-56da-809b-49222c3ab7a2

Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew married presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway’s cousin in a New Jersey wedding ceremony Saturday.

KELLYANNE CONWAY SLAMS TAYLOR SWIFT FOR GOING ‘HEAD-TO-HEAD’ AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP AND LOSING ‘HANDILY’

John Pence is a senior adviser on President Trump’s campaign and the nephew of Pence. Giovanna Coia is a White House communications aide whose father is Conway’s first cousin, the Washington Post reported. Coia first announced her engagement in September 2018, sharing a photo of her ring after Pence popped the question.

The couple’s page on the popular wedding registry site The Knot says the two were to wed Saturday in Atlantic City. The Federal Aviation Administration issued temporary flight restrictions in the area until Sunday, NJ.com reported. The type of restriction issued—VIPTFR—is used for government VIPs, special events, natural disasters and other events.

Pence was counting down the days to the wedding weeks ago on his Instagram, writing “T-14” next to a picture of his bikini-clad fiancée onVentnor City Beach on the Jersey Shore.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Coia has worked as a White House press assistant since January 2017. She attended The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Coia’s Her Campus profile says she’s from Sicklerville, NJ, and once was crowned Miss Teen South Jersey.

She also worked for Conway’s polling firm and interned for Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, before joining the White House staff, the Washington Post reported. Pence graduated from Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law and started working for Trump’s campaign in August 2016.

Defiant Iran blasts Pompeo’s Saudi-attack accusations as ‘blind and futile comments’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6086295426001_6086307206001-vs Defiant Iran blasts Pompeo’s Saudi-attack accusations as ‘blind and futile comments’ fox-news/world/world-regions/saudi-arabia fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/middle-east fox news fnc/world fnc Dom Calicchio article 756ac75a-3400-561b-a495-d5ec316d79c4

An Iranian official responded Sunday after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pointed at the nation’s government in Tehran following Saturday’s drone attacks on Saudi Arabia oil facilities.

“The Americans adopted the ‘maximum pressure’ policy against Iran, which, due to its failure, is leaning towards ‘maximum lies’,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said, according to the Associated Press.

On Saturday, Pompeo charged that Iran’s government in Tehran ordered “nearly 100 attacks” on a Saudi refinery and oilfield, further alleging that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif pretending “to engage in diplomacy.”

POMPEO ACCUSES IRAN OF ‘UNPRECEDENTED ATTACK’ AFTER DRONES HIT SAUDI OIL FACILITIES

On Sunday, Mousavi dismissed Pompeo’s remarks as “blind and futile comments.”

Saturday’s attacks, for which Yemen’s Houthi rebels claimed responsibility, resulted in “the temporary suspension of production operations” at the Abqaiq processing facility and the Khurais oil field, Riyadh said. They followed weeks of similar drone assaults on the kingdom’s oil infrastructure, but none of the earlier strikes appeared to have caused the same amount of damage.

The attacks led to the interruption of an estimated 5.7 million barrels in crude supplies, authorities said, while pledging the kingdom’s stockpiles would make up the difference. That size of shutdown hasn’t occurred since Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, The Wall Street Journal reported.

But Saudi officials told the Journal that normal levels of oil production would resume by Monday.

The rebels hold Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, and other parts of the Arab world’s poorest country. Since 2015, a Saudi-led coalition has fought to reinstate the internationally recognized Yemeni government.

What remained to be seen were the attacks’ effect on world energy prices. With markets closed Sunday, the answer wouldn’t be known for another 24 hours.

But one undeniable impact was an increase in Middle East tensions amid escalating U.S.-Iran hostilities as the Obama-era nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers continues to unravel.

Meanwhile, President Trump on Saturday called Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to offer his support for the kingdom’s defense, the White House said. The crown prince assured Trump that Saudi Arabia was “willing and able to confront and deal with this terrorist aggression,” according to a news release from the Saudi Embassy in Washington.

Man’s 20-foot tapeworm linked to this eating habit

Westlake Legal Group 6175f7d3-raw_beef_istock Man's 20-foot tapeworm linked to this eating habit Manny Alvarez fox-news/health/medical-mysteries-marvels fox news fnc/health fnc article 7cfb33a2-06a5-5209-847d-233b6367eafe

Many guys around the world enjoy beef. But one man in China happened to have an affinity for eating it raw, which can lead to getting infected—or inhabited—by harmful organisms.

In this case, the man ingested a tapeworm with one of his raw beef meals.

HOW A NEARLY BRAIN DEAD ‘MIRACLE MAN’ SURVIVED AFTER BEING TAKEN OFF LIFE SUPPORT

By the time doctors discovered it, the tapeworm had grown to 20 feet in length, reported Live Science.

The man went to the doctor after experiencing stomach pain and severe weight loss for three days.

The report showed he had lost over 11 pounds within that timeframe.

However, the man had also gone to the doctor multiple times over the last two years, getting treatment for stomach pain and anemia.

WOMAN’S CHEST PAIN DIAGNOSED AS ‘SPIRALING ESOPHAGUS’: WHAT’S THAT? 

How did doctors figure out the problem this time and not the others?

During this painful episode, the man brought in part of the tapeworm that he had found in his stool.

Once the tapeworm was identified, doctors gave him an oral antibiotic to expel the tapeworm that day. Three months later, the man got relief from his symptoms as well as his affinity for raw beef.

The case report was published in The New England Journal of Medicine in January 2016.

San Francisco’s least expensive home still costs $600G

If a one-bedroom, one-bath cottage with no garage or backyard priced at over half-a-million dollars sounds like your cup of tea, then get our your checkbook.

A 570-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bath property is on the market for $599,000 in San Francisco’s Glen Park neighborhood.

SAN FRANCISCO’S MOST EXPENSIVE LISTING GETS $4.5-MILLION CUT FROM $45 MILLION ASKING PRICE

According to SF Gate, the home was originally listed in March for $675,000, but after months without an interested buyer, the agent took it off the market in August.

Now the residential property at 17 Laidley St., which recently had its kitchen and bathroom remodeled, is once again for sale at a lowered $599,000 price tag.

“We’ve been getting all kinds of activity. I’m getting calls from people down south and they’re saying hey, I can get a house in SF for $599,000 I want it now. Some people are saying I don’t even know what I’d do with it yet, but I want it,” listing agent Jeff Appenrodt with Laurel Realty told SF Gate.

The abode is considered a bargain given that the median price of homes–including condos –in the nine-county Bay Area was a cool $815,000 this summer, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which cited a report by CoreLogic.

In San Francisco, specifically, the median was $1.35 million.

Though there seems to be renewed interest in the “cheap” property, the home will never be as big as its mini-mansion neighbors, since the lot it sits on is only 614 square feet.

However, Appenrodt tells SF Gate the pint-sized home has a basement and attic that could potentially add more square footage if finished.

Retired MLB star David Ortiz recounts being shot in Dominican Republic: ‘I want to find out who did this’

Westlake Legal Group MLB-David-Ortiz5 Retired MLB star David Ortiz recounts being shot in Dominican Republic: 'I want to find out who did this' fox-news/world/world-regions/dominican-republic fox-news/us/crime fox-news/sports/mlb/boston-red-sox fox-news/sports/mlb fox news fnc/sports fnc Danielle Wallace article 1c3aac26-11ff-59f9-91ad-a9ed4468efea

Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz gave his first English-language interview since a near-fatal shooting at a bar in his native Dominican Republic in June.

Ortiz, 43, sat down with the Boston Globe in Fenway Park last week, explaining he’s determined to find out who is responsible for the shooting that caused him to undergo several surgeries and left him bound to a hospital bed for nearly seven weeks.

The 20-year MLB star known as “Big Papi” made his first public appearance since the shooting last Monday when he threw out the opening pitch at Fenway.

DAVID ORTIZ THROWS OUT FIRST PITCH AT FENWAY PARK MONTHS AFTER SHOOTING

“I want to find out who did this,’’ Ortiz told the Boston Globe. “I’m not going to sit around and chill if there’s somebody out there who wants to kill me.’’

“I’m not going to sit around and chill if there’s somebody out there who wants to kill me.’’

— David Ortiz

“I don’t know why I was involved in something like this because I’m not the type of person who looks for trouble or causes trouble,” he told the newspaper. “All I worry about is trying to help people, about trying to do the right thing.”

Eleven people, all of whom Ortiz said he didn’t recognize, have been arrested in connection with the June 9 shooting at the Dial Bar in Santo Domingo, where the former pro-baseball player was shot at close range while his back was turned away from an identified gunman who fled the scene.

Ortiz said he hired former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis to investigate the case after Dominican officials released conflicting motives to explain why he was shot. Officials in the Carribean island nation now blame the shooting on a case of mistaken identity. Ortiz also told the Globe how he experienced moments in the hospital “feeling like I was going to die.”

“I had nightmares all the time about being in the desert, looking for water,” Ortiz told the paper. “I would wake up with my mouth dry and feeling like I’m going to die.”

“I would wake up with my mouth dry and feeling like I’m going to die.”

— David Ortiz

“I felt that if I didn’t die, then I would never be the same again,’’ he continued. “I went through hell with that.” Ortiz also tipped his hat to medical staff at Massachusetts General Hospital for reassuring him that he would survive.

The Red Sox had Ortiz airlifted from the Dominican Republic to Massachusetts General Hospital where he underwent several surgeries to address his wounded intestines and liver. He also underwent surgery in the Dominican Republic the day before he was transported to Boston.

He said he contracted a dangerous acute bacterial infection during his hospital stay in Boston and had to substitute food for Jello and ice chips, causing him to lose about 40 pounds. He was released on July 27 — nearly seven weeks after he was shot.

Dominican police now believe a suspected drug trafficker and fugitive named Victor Hugo Gomez Vasquez offered to pay $30,000 for the murder of his cousin David Fernández after he was feeding information to authorities. Fernández was sitting next to Ortiz at the nightclub at the time of the shooting. Authorities initially said a $7,800 bounty had been placed on Ortiz for unknown reasons, according to the New York Post.

Ortiz is to return to his job as a Fox Sports analyst for the upcoming MLB postseason. He started his career with the Minnesota Twins then spent 14 years with the Red Sox and is one of the most popular players in the team’s history. He was a key player on three World Series-winning teams in 2004, 2007 and 2013. A 10-time All-Star, Ortiz finished his big league career with 541 home runs and 1,768 RBIs.

NY Times sparks furor with tweet describing alleged Kavanaugh behavior as ‘harmless fun’

Westlake Legal Group nytimes-Reuters NY Times sparks furor with tweet describing alleged Kavanaugh behavior as 'harmless fun' fox-news/politics/judiciary/supreme-court fox-news/politics/judiciary/confirmation-of-judge-kavanaugh fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Dom Calicchio article a7d6edc2-5b20-5a8f-85d5-17a26373be7f

The New York Times, under its “New York Times Opinion” Twitter banner, issued an apology late Saturday, saying it had deleted an “offensive” Twitter message promoting a Times article that makes allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“We deleted a previous tweet regarding this article,” the second Times Opinion message said. “It was offensive, and we apologize.”

Previously, the Times posted and then deleted a tweet without the word “apology,” but saying that the original tweet had been deleted because it was “poorly phrased.”

TRUMP BLASTS NY TIMES, MOCKS SLOGAN AFTER PAPER REVISES HEADLINE ABOUT HIM

The original Times tweet graphically described an obscene act that Kavanaugh is accused of having done during his college years. The tweet then said the act “may seem like harmless fun.”

Regardless of whether the claim against Kavanaugh is true or not, critics on social media were simply furious that the Times would describe the alleged behavior as “harmless fun.”

‘Profound lapse in judgment’

“This is…. Such a profound lapse in judgment and common sense. Sexual assault isn’t harmless fun,” one Twitter user wrote. “What the hell is going on at the NYT?”

NEW YORK TIMES DELETES 9/11 TWEET AFTER BACKLASH: ‘AIRPLANES TOOK AIM AND BROUGHT DOWN THE WORLD TRADE CENTER’

But others also argued that the allegations against Kavanaugh in the article weren’t true.

‘What are they thinking?’

“What are they thinking at the New York Times?,” Fox News contributor Byron York of the Washington Examiner wrote. “1) It’s a discredited allegation. 2) If it happened, such things are ‘harmless fun’?”

‘Smearing a distinguished jurist’

“You may think that smearing a distinguished jurist based on the testimony of a woman who said last year she wasn’t even certain about her story is harmless fun…” wrote theater critic Kyle Smith.

NEW YORK TIMES APOLOGIZES FOR SHARING PREVIOUS OBITUARY REFERRING TO CHINA’S MAO AS ‘ONE OF HISTORY’S GREAT REVOLUTIONARY FIGURES’

The new Times story gives the account of a male Yale classmate of Kavanaugh named Max Stier, who alleges that Kavanaugh, at the urging of some friends, performed an obscene act while mistreating a woman at a party.

The Times reported Saturday that Stier told the FBI about the alleged incident during Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation process but the FBI did not investigate further.

Stier’s story appears to align with allegations that Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez made last year in an article in The New Yorker magazine. But that magazine noted at the time that Ramiriez “was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident.”

The magazine later noted that Ramirez agreed to speak only after “six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney.”

During his confirmation process, Kavanagh denied numerous allegations about his personal conduct.

Earlier this year, an attorney for Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford said her client was motivated to testify against Kavanaugh in part to attach an “asterisk” next to his name in the event of Supreme Court rulings on abortion.

The Senate ultimately approved President Trump’s nomination of Kavanaugh in a 50-48 vote last October.

House explosion in Pennsylvania linked to dad’s suicide on daughter’s wedding day: cops

[Editor’s note: This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).]

A Pennsylvania man apparently committed suicide on his daughter’s wedding day by blowing up his suburban Pittsburgh home, authorities say.

Neighbors told police they saw the homeowner standing in front of his residence in Edgewood shortly before an explosion went off inside the home, igniting a fire and eventually destroying the structure.

AT LEAST 22 PEOPLE INJURED AFTER THREE-STORY DECK COLLAPSE IN NEW JERSEY

“The house just collapsed in one large movement with a lot of sound to it,” neighbor Dann Laudermilch, 35, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “By that time it was fully in flames. It went up in flames remarkably fast. I thought it would take longer to burn, but it was like a minute and a half — it was crazy.”

“The house just collapsed in one large movement with a lot of sound to it. By that time it was fully in flames. It went up in flames remarkably fast.”

— Dann Laudermilch, neighbor

Police and fire units responded around 2:30 p.m. to find the man’s vehicle and cell phone out front. Hours passed before a crew using heavy machinery found the man’s body around 8 p.m., Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV reported.

The death was ruled a suicide and the man’s name was not released. Family members were away from the home at the time, attending the daughter’s wedding, officials said. It remained unclear who lived in the home with the man. No additional deaths were reported.

In addition to Laudermilch, other neighbors described feeling their own homes shake during the explosion, causing them to go outside to find out what happened.

“We came outside to see what was going on, and the house was in flames — still standing — but in flames,” neighbor Donna Antolovich told the Post-Gazette. “Three to five minutes before the house blew up, the owner was standing in front of it. After that, nobody could find him.”

The cause of the explosion remained under investigation, but Edgewood police Chief Robert Payne said it appeared the man “may have been able to disconnect the gas line itself in the basement of the house and of course it wouldn’t take much but a spark to explode the house after that.”

Police said they had been to the home before for domestic issues relating to mental illness. A house next door that was damaged by the fire had recently been sold, and officials say a family had been planning to move in soon.

Humberto dumps more rain on Dorian-battered Bahamas

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6086250118001_6086252444001-vs Humberto dumps more rain on Dorian-battered Bahamas fox-news/world/world-regions/americas fox-news/weather fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/bahamas fnc/world fnc DANICA COTO Associated Press article 4874499d-94b3-599d-8092-0a9f54672aeb

FREEPORT, Bahamas  — Tropical Storm Humberto moved away from the Bahamas on Saturday after dumping rain on parts of the archipelago’s northwest region that were already hammered by Hurricane Dorian two weeks ago.

Humberto dropped rain on the islands as U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres visited the Bahamas to support humanitarian efforts in the wake of Dorian, which hit as a Category 5 storm that left thousands in need of food, water and shelter. The list of missing stands at an alarming 1,300 people and the death toll at 50. But officials caution the list is preliminary and many people could just be unable to connect with loved ones.

The storm originally threatened to exacerbate the nation’s problems, but conditions appeared to normalize Saturday afternoon.

TROPICAL STORM HUMBERTO FORMS EAST OF BATTERED BAHAMAS

At 11 p.m. EDT, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Humberto was located about 85 miles north of Great Abaco Island and was moving 6 mph north-northwest with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. The Bahamian government discontinued a tropical storm warning earlier in the evening.

Weather forecasters say Humberto will likely become a hurricane Sunday as it moves away from the Bahamas and the U.S. coast, but won’t threaten land by the time it intensifies to that strength. Its swells could still affect the coasts of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina in the coming days.

Under a bright sun in the Grand Bahama, 40-year-old maintenance man Dexter Wilson was helping a friend put a blue tarp on a damaged roof. He said he was worried about his brother in Abaco given the tropical storm.

“He’s still there. I don’t know why,” he said.

The hurricane center said most of Humberto’s heavy squalls were occurring north and east of the center of the storm, which passed just east of Abaco. However, government officials in the Bahamas took no chances and urged people in damaged homes to seek shelter as they announced that aid efforts would be temporarily affected.

“The weather system will slow down logistics,” said Carl Smith, spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency.

The distribution of meals in Grand Bahama was reduced ahead of the storm, and a spokesman for the United Nations World Food Program said all flights into its logistics hub in Marsh Harbor in Abaco were suspended.

Later Saturday, WFP spokesman Herve Verhoosel said the agency had resumed activities in Marsh Harbor.

“Our team is back at work to support the population and relief organizations,” Verhoosel said in a statement.

Dave McGregor, president and COO of the Grand Bahama Power Company, said crews would resume restoring power as soon as possible.

“We are back in storm preparation mode again, unfortunately,” he said.

Guterres, who was in Abaco on Saturday, said he was “horrified” by the level of “systematic devastation.”

“Hurricane Dorian has been classified as Category 5. I think it’s Category Hell,” the U.N. secretary-general said after his visit.

He said storms powered by climate change had grown more intense, and he implored the international community to learn from the example of Abaco and Grand Bahama and provide support.

“We have always had many hurricanes, but now they are more intense, and they are more frequent,” he said.

At least 22 people injured after three-story deck collapse in New Jersey

Three levels of decking attached to a residential building collapsed on top of each other at the Jersey Shore Saturday, injuring at least 22 people, including some children.

The collapse in Wildwood happened at around 6 p.m. during the annual New Jersey Firemen’s Convention, which attracts thousands of current and former firefighters to the resort town.

Cape May Regional Health System said 21 people were taken there, at least three of them children. Eleven patients had been released by 10 p.m., including all the children who were admitted, hospital spokeswoman Susan Staeger told The Associated Press. AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City said at least one additional person was taken there.

The conditions of the hospitalized victims were not immediately clear, but no deaths were reported.

Witness Joann Devito said she was shitting on her deck across the street when she saw the collapse.

“I heard this noise, so I turned and looked and saw the whole thing caving in,” she said. “I saw two women running and screaming. It was horrible.”

Photos and video on social media showed firefighters trying to lift a piece of decking. It was unclear how many people were on or under the decks at the time, or how many were firefighters, but authorities said those who were trapped were quickly removed.

Images showed multiple levels of decking ripped away from the building and reduced to beams and splintered wood. The decks appeared to have been topped by a fourth-floor overhang, which looked to have remained intact. The second and third levels appeared to have pancaked onto a first-floor deck. The overhang looked intact.

Wildwood Fire Chief Daniel Speigel said authorities would not make a statement Saturday amid attempts to clean up and investigate. More information is likely on Sunday, he said.

Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher sues his ex-lawyers, military nonprofit

Decorated Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was acquitted of murder in a war crimes trial this past July, has sued two of his former lawyers and a military legal defense nonprofit, according to court documents filed in Texas Friday.

Attorneys Colby Vokey and Phillip Stackhouse and the United American Patriots (UAP) are named in the complaint brought by Gallagher, who alleges that Vokey and UAP orchestrated a “money-making scheme” and purposely delayed his case.

According to the filing, they “allowed [Gallagher] to languish in pre-trial confinement for several months while engaging in delay tactics and needlessly running up the legal bills.” Gallagher was kept in pre-trial confinement at Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar in San Diego for more than seven months.

“Vokey induced [Gallagher] to allow him to represent him in the criminal case by promising that all legal fees would be covered by UAP and that [Gallagher] would not be personally liable for any legal fees or expenses,” court documents state.

Gallagher terminated Vokey in March and severed his relationship with UAP, according to the filing. Stackhouse represented Gallagher until mid-April, when he stepped down.

Vokey filed a lawsuit against Gallagher last month demanding $1 million in alleged unpaid legal fees, according to the complaint. Gallagher is seeking a declaratory judgment stating he doesn’t owe any legal fees and that if fees should be rendered, then UAP should pay them – not Gallagher.

Gallagher, a 15-year Navy SEAL, was found not guilty of murdering an Islamic State (ISIS) fighter in Iraq in 2017, as well as charges of witness intimidation and assault. He was convicted on one count of taking a photo with a terrorist’s corpse and was sentenced to reduced rank and partial pay.

Tim Parlatore joined the Navy SEAL’s legal team in March and was Gallagher’s lead defense attorney during his court-martial. Marc Mukasey, one of President Trump’s personal attorneys, joined the legal team in April.

“It’s unfortunate that it came to this,” Parlatore told Fox News on Saturday. “But when attorneys and supposed nonprofits are taking advantage of our service members, they need to be held accountable.”

UAP says it “generates public awareness and funds legal representation,” according to its website. Gallagher’s complaint alleges that “UAP targets service members in need to use for their advertising campaigns, raising millions of dollars to line their pockets while providing very little to the actual legal representation.”

“We know who was committed to our family and we know who saw us a means to their own ends,” Andrea Gallagher, Eddie Gallagher’s wife, told Fox News on Saturday night. “Eddie and I firmly believe that the truth will be fully exposed.”

Stackhouse told Fox News on Saturday that he had not been served with any papers.

“It’s disappointing it’s come to this, but I’m confident a court will sort it out in the most appropriate manner,” he said.

Vokey did not return Fox News’ request for comment.
