Jessica Alba’s Twitter hacked, posts homophobic, racist and Nazi-sympathizing messages

Westlake Legal Group jessica-alba-speaking Jessica Alba's Twitter hacked, posts homophobic, racist and Nazi-sympathizing messages Jessica Sager fox-news/tech/topics/hackers fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/entertainment/events/scandal fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 07968805-9ea4-5726-9aee-fd1f0e5daa35

A hacker posted hateful, bigoted tweets from actress Jessica Alba’s account this weekend.

Messages posted to the Honest Co. founder’s account included one that read, “Nazi Germany Did Nothing Wrong And That’s On God N–a.”

Another read, “ugh police sirens in the distance again. When will n–s stop committing crimes so I can get some f–king sleep.”

JESSICA ALBA’S BIGGEST REGRET

Others included offers to pay $50,000 to kill handicapped homosexuals.

Thankfully, the messages were removed from the 38-year-old beauty’s account by early Sunday once the hack was discovered.

Falling prey to Twitter trolling is somewhat new to Alba, who previously lamented about being a target for a different kind of harassment: Sexual advances from older men.

JESSICA ALBA GETS HONEST ABOUT HER ACTING ABILITY

She said at Goop’s health summit in May, “I was meant to feel ashamed if I tempted men. Then I stopped eating a lot when I became an actress. I made myself look more like a boy so I wouldn’t get as much attention.”

She added that she felt “preyed upon” by men when she was starting out.

Still, she noted, “Nothing about being successful in this business is easy … You can’t be bitter.”

Edwin Meese: Special counsel never should have been appointed for Russia probe

Westlake Legal Group Mark-Levin-split Edwin Meese: Special counsel never should have been appointed for Russia probe fox-news/shows/life-liberty-levin fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz cb20876d-b38c-5096-a2f9-76868814a460 article

Former Attorney General Edwin Meese said recently he believes former Special Counsel Robert Mueller should never have been appointed for the probe into Russia interference into the 2016 U.S. elections.

Meese also claimed in an interview airing Sunday on “Life, Liberty & Levin” that the Mueller report seemed “foreign” to the man credited with authoring it.

“In my opinion, no, there was no need,” Meese said when asked whether it was necessary for a special counsel to oversee the FBI’s Russia investigation.

“For one thing, the department was not in any way conflicted.”

MARK LEVIN THANKS DEMOCRATS FOR MUELLER HEARING, CLAIMS THEY ‘IMPEACHED’ THEMSELVES

However, Meese, who served under President Ronald Reagan between 1985 and 1988, said former Attorney General Jeff Sessions was right to recuse himself because he was a potential “fact witness” in the investigation due to his prominent role in Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

“But, that certainly did not conflict the entire Department of Justice,” Meese added.

Rather than appointing Mueller, Meese claimed, the Russia investigation could have been executed through standard channels within the government.

“If once there was an allegation, if there was one, then that should have gone through the normal processes of the department and been handled by the U.S. attorney either in Washington, D.C., or in New York — wherever the jurisdiction happened to be,” Meese explained.

Discussing Mueller’s appearance before two House committees Wednesday, Meese claimed the former FBI director appeared to be unfamiliar with parts of his own report.

“I was concerned by his testimony,” he said.

“I was concerned by the fact that so much of the report seemed to be foreign to him, or at least he was not familiar with it. And I’ve since reflected the views of a lot of people who were watching and that was that he was not familiar with the report because it looked like someone else had written it.”

Host Mark Levin served as Meese’s chief of staff during the Reagan administration.

Republican Arizona state senator says US will ‘look like South American countries’ soon

Republican Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen believes the U.S. will soon “look like South American countries” because immigrants entering the U.S. and low birth rates among white people are contributing to a lack of cultural assimilation.

Speaking at a Republican Party event in Phoenix on July 15, Allen, of Snowflake, a city in Navajo County, said immigrants were inundating the U.S. — so much so that they can’t learn “the principles of our country.”

GEORGIA LAWMAKER WHO SAID MAN TOLD HER TO ‘GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM’ WALKS BACK PART OF CLAIM

Her remarks were obtained and published by the Phoenix New Times on Friday.

“We have a right as a country to have people coming in an organized manner, so we know who is coming. So we can have jobs for them, so we can provide education for them, and health care, and all these things that people need,” Allen said at the event, which celebrated “Mormon Political Pioneers.”

The senator continued: “We can’t provide that when people are just flooding us and flooding us and flooding us and overwhelming us so we don’t have time to teach them the principles of our country any more than we’re teaching our children today.”

Allen also touched upon the declining birth rate of white people in the U.S., telling those at the event the “median age of a white woman is 43” while the “median age of a Hispanic woman is 27.”

“We are not reproducing ourselves, the birthrates,” she said, according to the report. “But here’s what I see is the issue: It’s because of immigration.”

Wendy Rogers, a Republican running for the state Senate seat now held by Allen, issued a statement Saturday denouncing Allen’s comments as “very racist” and said Allen should retire from the Legislature — while Democratic state Sen. Martin Quezada told the Arizona Republic that the “tone and perspective” of Allen’s remarks on migrants were “insulting, to say the least.”

Allen told the New Times that her comments were inspired by a respected demographer who she says has described “the browning of America,” and apologized in Facebook posts on Friday and Saturday “to anyone who has been hurt” by her words. She later thanked people who spoke in support and added, “Verbal Lynching is the political tool used today to silence debate on critical issues.”

The senator did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment regarding her remarks.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Florida couple asks for school supplies for kids in need instead of wedding presents

In lieu of gifts, a Florida couple asked for something a little different on their wedding day.

Matt and Kelli Cameron, of Tampa, asked their friends and family not for presents to start their new life together, but for school supplies for around 70 local children.

“We knew we didn’t need much of anything. Anything we did need, we could handle on our own,” Kelli, a teacher, told WTVT. “We started thinking of different charitable acts we could do, and as a teacher, I really liked the school supply idea. So I talked about it with Matt, and we decided on the idea.”

Matt said he “wasn’t a fan of the whole wedding gift idea, or wedding in general,” and so asking their guests to help children “worked out well.”

Each guest who attended their June nuptials was asked to consider donating a backpack full of the supplies.

Kelli, who has worked as a teacher for seven years, said everyone “got a little description of who they were buying for and what size they were for uniforms, and what grade they were in for school supplies that were needed.”

The supplies were donated to Booker T. Washington Elementary School in Tampa, the news outlet reported. Kelli said the school she works at didn’t need help, so she reached out to the elementary school to see what they needed.

“Being a teacher, I know a lot of kids come with nothing to school,” Kelli said. “And you see the kids so excited about the little things: a backpack, or new shoes. It’s so important that they can start school excited, and a lot of teachers spend their own money for their kids. This helped out a little bit.”

Snake on arm makes for rude awakening for hotel guest in Tennessee

A Tennessee woman who stayed at a hotel in the state reportedly woke up Friday morning with a snake on her arm.

“I felt something across my arm this morning,” Melinda Major told FOX 13 Memphis. “I looked over and it was a snake. It was laid out across my arm.”

Major said she quickly shook the garden snake off.

“It landed back on the bed,” she said, “and I jumped up on the desk and called the front office for them to come.”

Roma Downey: You are not alone. You are never alone. (Don’t you know that God loves you?)

Westlake Legal Group Roma-Downey Roma Downey: You are not alone. You are never alone. (Don’t you know that God loves you?) Roma Downey fox-news/opinion fox-news/faith-values/values fox-news/faith-values/faith fox-news/faith-values fox news fnc/opinion fnc article a3c62233-df53-5693-983b-bd8c628bb019

Every morning, when I get out of bed and my first foot hits the floor, I say, “Thank.” Then the other foot hits the floor, and I say, “You.” And all the way into the bathroom, I am whispering, “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.” A pitter-patter of gratitude as I begin my day.

I began this practice when I was filming “Touched by an Angel” in Utah. I don’t remember where I read or heard about it, but as soon as I discovered this practice, I knew it was something I wanted to integrate into my daily routine. And I’ve done it every day ever since.

I’ve now added another routine to remind me to give thanks throughout the day. Each time I wash my hands and feel the water run over my skin; I say it again. “Thank you. Thank you, God.” It helps me take a step back from whatever is happening in my day to remember my blessings. It’s a reminder for me to acknowledge God; and from that space, I am brought into a place of strength and wholeness and fullness. I find when I attach an attitude to an action – something that I am bound to do throughout the day – it helps me remember the attitude more. And so, every time I wash my hands, my perception of whatever is going on around me instantly changes.

ROMA DOWNEY: ‘I’LL LEAVE A MESSAGE FOR YOU IN THE MOON’ — THE INCREDIBLE GIFT MY FATHER GAVE ME

I think that practice spoke to me while I was in Utah because I was so grateful during that season of my life. As a woman of faith, I was so grateful to be cast as an angel on TV delivering a message of God’s love.

I was so moved by letters I received from people who shared how a particular episode impacted them and deeply touched their lives. Because I was the face of the show, many of these letters were addressed to me, but I would often bring them to set to share with my cast and crew. We would laugh and cry and hug, hearing the messages from these viewers, so grateful for the opportunity to be part of something that was clearly bigger than all of us. As my beautiful co-star Della used to say, “It’s a God thing, baby.”

One time, I was at a bookstore in Los Angeles doing a signing for a book I had written, and a young woman came up to me, tears in her eyes and fresh scars on her wrists. And she told me the most remarkable story.

She hadn’t had an easy life, and one night she found herself full of despair and ready to take her own life. She slit her wrists and slid down the bathroom wall, filled with anger at her family because she felt abandoned and alone, feelings that had plagued her throughout her life. And now, here she was, feeling abandoned and alone, again. She cried out to God, “Even now, there’s no one here! There’s no one here.” And she let her head sink to her knees, waiting for death to take her.

I believe God is willing and able to use any of us to do His work. We each have to slow down so we can hear His whisper. Find the stillness, look for ways to do small acts of kindness and look for ways to love. 

But then she heard something from the living room. It was the television. She didn’t even remember turning it on. “Touched by an Angel” was on, and it was the angel revelation scene. And this woman heard the words of Monica the angel come wafting through the bathroom door: “You are not alone. You are never alone. Don’t you know that God loves you?”

When she heard those words, she lifted her head. She felt those words were just for her. And she picked up a towel and wrapped up her wrists and called an ambulance.

I stared at her in shock and gave her a hug, tears flooding my eyes, and all I could say was, “Thank you, God.” Thank you, God. Over and over. I was so humbled by what God was able to accomplish with that little show of ours.

I believe God is willing and able to use any of us to do His work. We each have to slow down so we can hear His whisper. Find the stillness, look for ways to do small acts of kindness and look for ways to love.

After the show wrapped, I missed my cast and crew family of course. But I also missed playing the angel and inhabiting her spirit. Playing Monica for many hours a day, over many years, taught me so much. She made me a better friend, a better listener, a more faithful servant.

I enjoyed living in her skin, and I think she brought out the best of me. She was able to truly, fully show up for someone. She listened, not just with her ears but also with her heart. I have learned when people come to you with a heart-load of hurt, they aren’t always looking for solutions or answers. It’s often enough just to listen and love. When people feel they are truly heard, healing can happen.

I know this to be true in my own life. Taking the time to be gracious, to say thank you, to be grateful for waking up each day, for family and friends. Reflecting on all that is good in the world can reframe your day. You can’t be grateful and miserable in the same thought.

Sometimes it feels as if there is so much darkness and that our world is full of disagreement. In those moments, it helps keep me focused to remember the goodness in the world. And with all the noise and negative headlines it’s easy to forget there is so much kindness and compassion all around us.

I named my company LightWorkers with the intention of creating uplifting content to help remind people about the stories of goodness and hope that underpin everything. It’s through LightWorkers that my team and I desire to spread the light of God’s hope and to shine His light. Last month alone we had more than 313 million video views across our social platforms. These numbers reveal that people are hungry for stories of hope and want to be reminded that we are so much stronger together than we are divided.

Let us make more noise for the good guys with grateful hearts.

CNN anchor Victor Blackwell, a Baltimore native, gets emotional after Trump’s tweets

CNN anchor Victor Blackwell struggled to keep his composure Saturday while reporting on President Trump’s Twitter tirade against Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and his congressional district in Baltimore.

Blackwell, 38, told viewers he’s a Baltimore native and took personal offense to the president’s comments about the city, including Trump’s remark that “No human being would want to live there.”

“You know who did, Mr. President? I did,” Blackwell responded on the air Saturday. “From the day I was brought home from the hospital to the day I left for college, and a lot of people I care about still do.”

“There are challenges no doubt, but people are proud of their community,” Blackwell continued, according to the Daily Beast. “I don’t want to sound self-righteous, but people get up and go to work there. They care for their families there. They love their children who pledge allegiance to the flag just like people who live in districts of congressmen who support you, sir. They are Americans, too!”

Blackwell also referred to the president’s use of the word “infested” during his critique of Baltimore. The CNN anchor accused the president of taking a word normally associated with rodents and insects and using in attacks against lawmakers who are members of minority groups.

“He’s insulted thousands of people, many different types of people,” Blackwell said, according to the Washington Post. “But when he tweets about infestation, it’s about black and brown people.”

Antagonistic relationship

Trump and CNN have long had an antagonistic relationship, with the president often accusing the network of reporting “fake news” and referring to it as “the enemy of the people.”

Just days ago, CNN’s Jake Tapper ripped the president for tweeting, “TRUTH IS A FORCE OF NATURE!” after former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified on Capitol Hill.

“It’s interesting for the president to be saying in all caps that truth is a force of nature,” Tapper remarked, “because what we’ve been hearing about to a large degree all day is how many lies President Trump and the team have told.”

Earlier this month, CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon took Trump to task for spelling errors in his social media messages.

“If you are the president of the United States and people hang on your every word,” Lemon said, “then you should check and recheck and double-check and triple-check and make sure that your spelling is correct.”

Also this month, CNN’s Anderson Cooper accused the president’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, of misrepresenting a situation that occurred in North Carolina, where a crowd a one of President Trump’s rallies chanted “Send her back!” in reference to far-left U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., an immigrant from Somalia.

“She’s just friggin’ lying,” Cooper said at one point.

“She’s just friggin’ lying.”

Contentious moment

Perhaps the most contentious moment between the president and the network came last November, when the White House suspended the press pass of Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent.

The move was prompted by what the White House viewed as inappropriate questions from Acosta, plus an incident where the reporter appeared to have placed his hands on a White House intern in what appeared to be an attempt to prevent her from taking a microphone back from him during a news conference.

The suspension against Acosta was ultimately lifted. Last month he put out a book about his time covering the White House, with the title, “The Enemy of the People.”
