West Virginia lawmaker calls out Trump for ‘using Lord’s name in vain’ during rally

Westlake Legal Group Paul-Hardesty-Donald-Trump-Reuters West Virginia lawmaker calls out Trump for ‘using Lord’s name in vain’ during rally fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/west-virginia fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/faith-values/faith fox-news/faith-values fox news fnc/politics fnc Caleb Parke c254af91-438b-5723-a972-d8e5624dffa1 article

A West Virginia lawmaker is upset with “distasteful comments” President Trump made during his North Carolina rally.  But it had nothing to do with the “send her back” crowd chants directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., that the president disavowed Thursday.

Democratic state Sen. Paul Hardesty, a conservative Trump supporter from coal country, sent a letter to the president saying he was “appalled” the leader of the free world used “god-damn” not once, but twice, during his Wednesday night rally.

OMAR VOWS TO CONTINUE BEING TRUMP’S ‘NIGHTMARE’ AS HUNDREDS GREET HER IN MINNESOTA

The first time was in reference to a business person whom Trump didn’t get along with that reluctantly agreed he is prospering under the Trump administration. Otherwise, he would’ve been “god-damn poor,” Trump said. The second time Trump used it was in reference to how hard the U.S. military would strike Iran if it comes to it.

It didn’t sit well with the West Virginia lawmaker.

“There is no place in society — anywhere, anyplace and at any time — where that type of language should be used or handled,” Hardesty wrote. “Your comments were not presidential. I know in my heart that you are better than that.”

WILL TRUMP SOLIDIFY MORE CHRISTIAN VOTERS IN 2020? THIS EVANGELICAL LEADER THINKS SO

Hardesty concluded by telling Trump to remember it’s “In God We Trust” in the United States, “not curse.”

But the Democratic lawmaker, despite his criticism of Trump, said he remains a supporter today and urged Trump to “reflect on your comments and never utter those words again.”

Trump, largely elected by evangelical Christians, has said he will fight for religious freedom. His support has increased among evangelicals, largely because of nominating conservative judges, moving the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and because of his anti-abortion policies.

Disney star Christy Carlson Romano recreates iconic ‘Even Stevens’ scene with former costars

Westlake Legal Group Christy-Carlson-Romano-Getty Disney star Christy Carlson Romano recreates iconic 'Even Stevens' scene with former costars Madeline Farber fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 734d032b-ef8a-5317-9044-715496cd99d9

Former Disney Channel star Christy Carlson Romano — who played Ren Stevens on “Even Stevens” — recently recreated an out-of-this-world scene from the beloved show.

Romano, alongside two of her former “Even Stevens” co-stars — Lauren Frost and George Anthony Bell, who played Ruby Mendel and Principal Wexler, respectively — recreated the iconic musical number “We Went to the Moon” from the 2002 episode titled “Influenza: The Musical.”

Romano, 35, starred as perfectionist big sister Ren in “Even Stevens,” a comedy about the Stevens family, in which actor Shia LaBeouf rose to fame.

DEMI LOVATO: FROM DISNEY STAR TO POP ICON

The recreation, which was inspired by the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon, was posted to the Romano’s YouTube cooking series called “Christy’s Kitchen Throwback.”

‘BUFFY’ ACTRESS KRISTY SWANSON DEFENDS TRUMP, ACCUSES SQUAD-BACKING LIBERALS OF HYPOCRISY

The song was first featured in the 2002 episode when Romano’s character insists on going to school despite having the flu, all to avoid ruining her perfect attendance record. She later dreams about going to school despite feeling ill. In her dream, she realizes she forgot to prepare a presentation and subsequently comes up with the song about the 1969 moon landing on the spot.

The throwback comes after Romano opened up in May about the “private breakdown,” which included self-destructive behavior, she had after the show on the children’s network ended in 2003.

In an essay published in Teen Vogue at the time, Romano detailed “the pitfalls of early-onset fame” and how she strived to be a “triple threat.”

Facebook and Google are keeping tabs on what porn you’re watching

If you thought Facebook and Google were creepy with how much they know about you — think again. They even know what type of porn you watch.

According to a new study, researchers have found that Facebook, Google and Oracle are keeping tabs on what porn is being consumed using a tool known as webXray, a tracking tool that sends data back to third parties.

“Our results indicate tracking is endemic on pornography websites: 93 [percent] of pages leak user data to a third-party; the pages that leak data do so to an average of seven domains; 79 [percent] have a third-party cookie (often used for tracking); of the pages with cookies, there is an average of nine cookies; and only 17 [percent] of sites are encrypted, allowing network adversaries to potentially intercept login and password details,” researchers wrote in the study.

BERNIE SANDERS SAYS HE’D ABSOLUTELY TRY TO BREAK UP FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, AMAZON

Even if a person were to enter into “incognito mode” on their browser, meaning that their results were supposedly not being tracked, they still were, the researchers found.

Using a hypothetical person named “Jack,” the researchers note that incognito mode only means the browsing history is not stored on Jack’s computer.

“The sites he visits, as well as any third-party trackers, may observe and record his online actions,” the study adds. “These third-parties may even infer Jack’s sexual interests from the URLs of the sites he accesses. They might also use what they have decided about these interests for marketing or building a consumer profile. They may even sell the data. Jack has no idea these third-party data transfers are occurring as he browses videos.”

The study, which looked at 22,484-sex related sites, was completed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon, the University of Pennsylvania and Microsoft, which competes with Google and Oracle for cloud computing services.

Google had trackers on 74 percent of the sites, Oracle had trackers on 24 percent and Facebook tracked 10 percent, according to the research.

“The fact that the mechanism for adult site tracking is so similar to, say, online retail should be a huge red flag,” study co-author Elena Maris told the New York Times.

Ex-New York Giants offensive lineman Mitch Petrus dies of heat stroke age 32

Former New York Giants offensive lineman and Super Bowl winner Mitch Petrus has died in Arkansas of apparent heat stroke age just 32.

Pulaski County Coroner Gerone Hobbs says Petrus died Thursday night at a North Little Rock hospital.

Petrus had worked outside all day at his family shop, and that his cause of death is listed as heat stroke, he said.

Petrus was a University of Arkansas walk-on who played alongside Razorback greats Darren McFadden and Felix Jones and later earned all-Southeastern Conference honors.

He was drafted by the Giants in the fifth round in 2010 and had a three-year NFL career, winning a Super Bowl with New York in his second season and playing briefly for the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans the following year.

Like much of the U.S., Arkansas is in the grips of an intense heat wave.

‘Terminator’ star Linda Hamilton discusses her 35-year relationship with Arnold Schwarzenegger

Westlake Legal Group Terminator 'Terminator' star Linda Hamilton discusses her 35-year relationship with Arnold Schwarzenegger Tyler McCarthy fox-news/person/arnold-schwarzenegger fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc cd27561d-9a7e-56bb-add9-ca1e7e76d0c3 article

Terminator: Dark Fate” actress Linda Hamilton talked about how excited she is to reprise her role in the science fiction franchise alongside her friend of 35 years, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The duo appeared at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con to promote the movie. Hamilton is reprising her role as Sarah Connor for the first time since the groundbreaking 1991 film, “Terminator 2: Judgement Day.” Schwarzenegger, who shot to fame after appearing in the first film in 1984, is back as well but in a more mysterious role.

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER JABS DONALD TRUMP AFTER COMMENTS ABOUT ‘APPRENTICE’ RATINGS WERE MISINTERPRETED

“I loved working with Arnold. I actually was just pleased as punch when I saw him again,” Hamilton told ET Online. “It had been a number of years. And I just have this affection for him that is so deep and biting, that just got completely cemented on this film.”

“I loved working physically with him, I loved seeing him in the trailer, I loved toying with him,” she continued. “You know, it’s the very top of a 35-year relationship, and that really means something to me.”

The highly anticipated film hails from “Deadpool” director Tim Miller and producer James Cameron who is also returning to the franchise for the first time since the massively successful and VFX-heavy sequel.

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER WON’T PRESS CHARGES AGAINST ATTACKER

“Dark Fate” features “Hamilton’s” Sarah Connor back in action as she defends the world against evil, self-aware robots who want to wipe out mankind. It also introduces Mackenzie Davis as a new hybrid terminator/human, Grace.

The duo previously got back together to promote the film at a CinemaCon event in Las Vegas. While there, Schwarzenegger shared his excitement to be back on-screen with Hamilton.

“Isn’t it great? The whole team is back together again,” Schwarzenegger marveled on the Las Vegas stage with his co-star by his side. “It is so fantastic.”

5.3 magnitude quake shakes Greek capital, sends residents to the streets in fear

A strong earthquake hit Friday near the Greek capital of Athens, causing residents to run into the streets in fear and firefighters to check for people trapped in elevators.

The Athens Institute of Geodynamics gave the earthquake a preliminary magnitude of 5.1 but the U.S. Geological Survey tagged it as a magnitude of 5.3. The Athens Institute says the quake struck at 2:13 p.m. local time (1113 GMT) some 23 kilometers (14.2 miles) north of Athens.

Authorities inspected areas close to the epicenter by helicopter and police patrols but no deaths or serious injuries were reported. Government spokesman Stelios Petsas said one abandoned building had collapsed in a western district of Athens and that several other abandoned buildings had suffered serious damages in other parts of the city.

“There are no reports of serious injuries … I urge members of the public to remains calm, in Greece we are well acquainted with earthquakes,” he said.

The quake caused limited power cuts and communication problems around Athens and the fire brigade reported receiving calls about people being trapped in elevators. The shock was caught live in the studios of state broadcaster ERT.

The most powerful quake to hit the Greek capital in the last 20 years came in 1999, when a temblor of magnitude 6.0 caused extensive damage and killed more than 140 people.

“It had a very shallow depth and that’s why it was felt so strongly,” he said. “It is too early to say whether this was the main earthquake, but there have been aftershocks of magnitude 3.5, 2.5 and 3.2 and that is encouraging. But we need more time and data to have a clear picture.”

Earthquakes are common in Greece and neighboring Turkey.
