A baseball bat-wielding Florida woman slugged a man after he attempted to break into her parked vehicle and then charged at her Sunday.

Clarese Gainey, 65, of Gainesville, told WGFL she heard a noise coming from outside her home and peeked out the window. That was when she says she saw a large man — dressed only in his boxers — attempting to get into her car.

“I grab my bat, I brace myself, and I ease the door open,” Gainey told WGFL.

At that moment, the man — identified by police as 37-year-old Antonio Mosely — charged at her, authorities said, according to WGFL.

“I took that bat and hit him upside the head, like, ‘pi-yah!’ He said, ‘Ow!'” Gainey recalled.

The man reportedly fled to a nearby mobile home park but left behind a sock, shirt and pants.

“He was in his drawers,” she recalled.

A K-9 unit was able to track Mosely to a mobile home where officials said he was found with a pair of pants on. WGFL reported cocaine was found his pocket, and he was brought to Gainey for identification.

“I said, ‘That’s him right there,’” Gainey said.

Officers said they also noticed a large bump on the suspect’s head.

Mosley was charged with “attempted burglary to both an occupied and unoccupied conveyance and possession of a controlled substance,” the media outlet reported.

Gainey had a warning for the suspect, saying he “better be glad I didn’t have a gun.”

“Because I would have shot him,” she said.

Then, pointing at her baseball bat, she added: “But this is my gun right here. Because I would have gone ‘pi-yow!'”

Beanie Feldstein, actress and sister of Academy Award-nominated actor Jonah Hill, wrote an emotional essay on the unexpected death of her older brother, Jordan Feldstein.

Feldstein, 25, titled the essay, “Grief Glasses” that was published in InStyle magazine. She also shared the essay on her Instagram.

“It cannot be contained or summarized or enclosed… To describe the wound grief leaves if you have not experienced it is to come to it hazy and out of focus,” she wrote, according to People.

CLINT EASTWOOD’S DAUGHTER MARRIES JONAH HILL’S BROTHER

Jordan Feldstein died in December 2017 of a pulmonary embolism. He was a talent manager who managed Maroon 5. He was 40.

“About a year ago, Jordan Feldstein passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. He was a remarkably generous, intelligent, loving person,” she wrote. He was an incredible father, beloved by his boys,” Feldstein continued. “He was a deeply devoted son. He was a brilliant creative mind. And he was my biggest brother. He gave me so many things, including my name.”

The “Lady Bird” actress compared her grief to wearing a pair of glasses that she’s unable to take off.

“And these glasses make me see the world differently than I did before. The colors bleed together more vividly. But they are somehow more than they ever were before. More visceral. More vibrant. More present. Simultaneously more awe-inspiring and more aching,” she wrote.

She wrote the despite wanting to “rip my grief glasses off my face and have it all be a dream” she said that it has given her a “unique blend of humanity.”

The actor’s touching essay got the attention of other celebrities including Olivia Wilde who called the article “beautiful.”

“You are incredible,” Wilde commented on her Instagram post, according to E! News.

Bride-to-be nixes engagement shoot, takes photos with terminally ill father instead

When one bride-to-be learned the heartbreaking news that her father, who was battling cancer, would be moving to hospice care, she called off her engagement photo shoot with her fiancé and took pictures in the backyard of her childhood home with her dad instead.

The Virginia woman looked lovely in her wedding gown, her veteran father handsome in his U.S. Air Force dress blues, in a series of portraits that would later prove to be all the more powerful as the father of the bride would not live to see his daughter’s wedding day.

BRIDE’S WEDDING DANCE WITH TERMINALLY ILL DAD IN WHEELCHAIR GOES VIRAL  

The story began in September 2018, when Becky Carey and her future groom, Matt, contacted their engagement session photographer Bonnie Turner, Southern Living reports, requesting to reschedule their appointment. Carey apologized for having to shuffle the plans around, and shared tragic news.

“My dad [Tim] has been fighting prostate cancer and his body is now at the point where it can’t handle more treatment. We found out yesterday that he starts hospice this week,” the woman wrote, asking if Turner could use the deposit for the engagement photos for a “family photo session” instead.

“Matt and I will worry about our photos later, because this is more pressing with time,” Carey continued. “Of course this is a very difficult and dark time, but I know how you feel about love and capturing it so beautifully and meaningfully.”

Turner obliged, and soon traveled to the family home on the same day that the bride’s videographer friend was taking “first dance” footage of the dad and daughter — in the event that her dad would not be there for her special day, as per Brides.

Though the photos and happy memories of the sentimental moment will surely last a lifetime, Tim sadly passed away on March 28 — before his daughter’s upcoming wedding day.

“My heart is heavy today as I have been informed of his passing. He fought so hard for a very long time,” Turner wrote on Facebook of his passing, sharing the images online.

“These photos are near and dear to this family and most of all, special to [Becky.] Photographs and memories are EVERYTHING when they are all you have left,” she said of the shoot.

In the weeks since, the powerful tale of the dad and daughter has gone massively viral from Turner’s post, with over 81,000 likes, 33,000 shares, and not a dry eye in the 5,000 comments.

“I’m sobbing. Photographs are everything,” one fan wrote. “These are so beautiful.”

“Memories and photographs are most definitely everything! Truly amazing! Prayers for this special family,” another agreed.

“I absolutely love this! As someone who didn’t get to dance with her dad at her wedding I can’t even begin to tell you what a treasure these pictures will be to her now and in the future,” another offered.

Ex-House Rep. Michele Bachmann exalts Trump: We will ‘never see a more godly, biblical president’

Former House Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., exalted President Trump as being “highly biblical” in a recent interview.

Bachmann, 63, spoke with “Understanding These Times,” a Christian radio show over the weekend and offered her praise of the commander-in-chief, adding there were so many examples of Trump “standing for righteousness.”

“One being Barack Obama had demanded and commanded that our military services had to literally go out and recruit people who are transgender to come into the military,” she claimed. “Well, it costs about a quarter of a million dollars to do sex reassignment surgery.”

MICHELE BACHMANN SAYS SHE’S CONSIDERING RUNNING FOR AL FRANKEN’S SENATE SEAT

“Why would you recruit people who would come in and have sex reassignment surgery and be on the sidelines? It made no sense, so Donald Trump got rid of that mandate and that requirement,” Bachmann said.

Bachmann was referring to the Trump administration’s military regulation that was slated to go into effect Friday. The new policy strips transgender troops of rights — which they only recently secured under the Obama administration — to serve openly and receive care if they choose to transition to another gender. An estimated 14,700 troops identify as transgender.

Bachmann applauded Trump for standing up “where most Republicans wouldn’t dare to.”

“Donald Trump has had the courage in the fortitude, and I will say to your listeners in my lifetime I have never seen a more biblical president than I have seen in Donald Trump,” she said.

“He has so impressed me with what he has done, and we haven’t even talked about Israel. He is highly biblical. And I will say to your listeners, we will in all likelihood never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetimes. So we need to not only be praying for him. We need to support him, in my opinion, in every possible way we can,” she concluded.

Bachmann served four terms in Congress before announcing in 2014 that she will not be seeking re-election. She served as one of Trump’s evangelical advisers during his 2016 presidential candidate.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Maryland man allegedly attacked for wearing MAGA hat says it won’t stop him from putting it on again

The Maryland man who police say was attacked for wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat said he will not stop wearing the cap showing his support for President Trump.

Atsu Mable, in an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday, also said he forgives the two strangers alleged to have gone after him Saturday night in Germantown, outside of Washington, D.C.

“I have a message for love – that Jesus said in the Bible that you must love your neighbor, so I still love them,” he told Fox News. “I think whatever happened to me that day should not happen to anybody.

“I forgive them. I’m ready to make peace with them if I could see them again,” he added.

Mable said he was walking off his dinner that night when he was approached by strangers, one of which told him “you shouldn’t be wearing that hat, bro.”

“I said ‘this is not your problem – it doesn’t matter – it’s a personal reason,’” Mable told ‘Fox & Friends’.

Mable said he then walked away but felt someone punch his back, and a fight ensued. Possessions belonging to Mable were taken by the suspects and destroyed during the brawl, the Montgomery County Department of Police said in a statement.

Officers later tracked down Jovan Crawford, 27, and Scott Duncan Roberson, 25, who were: “attempting to hide among a group of children playing basketball”.

Both men are now facing numerous charges, including robbery, attempted theft, and second-degree assault.

“I like the message that the president brought back in 2015 when he was running,” Mable said.

“I’m very proud of wearing the hat,” he added, noting that he will put it on again in the future.

Mysterious interstellar meteor may have slammed into Earth in 2014

Oumuamua, the first interstellar object detected, has made headlines since it was discovered in 2017. Since then, researchers have theorized what it could be, with some suggesting it could be a light sail from another civilization, while others have suggested it could be a comet or an asteroid.

But now, a new study suggests that Oumuamua isn’t alone – another interstellar object disintegrated in Earth’s atmosphere five years ago.

The study, which has been submitted to The Astrophysical Journal Letters and can be read at arXiv.org, suggests NASA may have already detected an interstellar object, a 3-foot meteor that was detected on Jan. 8, 2014 over Papua New Guinea. The speed of the object, which has been cataloged with the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies, indicates it may have originated outside the solar system, according to the study’s authors, Amir Siraj and Avi Loeb.

ALIENS? HARVARD PROFESSOR DEFENDS CLAIM MYSTERIOUS INTERSTELLAR OBJECT COULD BE EXTRATERRESTRIAL PROBE

“Based on the [Center for Near-Earth Object Studies’] catalog of bolide events, we identify the ∼0.45m meteor detected … as originating from an unbound hyperbolic orbit … outside of the solar system,” the researchers wrote in the study.

They continued: “Its high LSR speed implies a possible origin from the deep interior of a planetary system or a star in the thick disk of the Milky Way galaxy.”

Loeb is no stranger to interstellar objects, having previously authored a study that there may be a great number of objects similar to Oumuamua floating around the Milky Way galaxy, but humanity has yet to find them.

The chair of astronomy at Harvard University, Loeb is also the researcher who suggested Oumuamua is an extraterrestrial probe.

Speaking with Space.com, Loeb said that the velocity of the 2014 meteor may indicate it received a proverbial gravitational push from outside the solar system.

“You can imagine that if these meteors were ejected from the habitable zone of a star, they could help transfer life from one planetary system to another,” Loeb told the news outlet.

In addition to the 2014 meteor that flew over Papua New Guinea, Loeb and Siraj discovered two other meteors in the CNEOS catalog that traveled at similar speeds, ultimately analyzing 30 years worth of data. One of the meteors was likely bound gravitationally to the Sun, (because of its orbit) while the other is undetermined, LiveScience reported.

Along with John Forbes, Loeb has previously written that it is possible that interstellar objects “collide with the Sun once every 30 years, while about 2 pass within the orbit of Mercury each year.”

MYSTERIOUS INTERSTELLAR OBJECT IS NOT AN ALIEN PROBE, SAYS ASTRONOMER WHO DISCOVERED IT

At its closest approach, Oumuamua was approximately 0.26 astronomical units (AU) away from the Sun or approximately 24.2 million miles. One AU is approximately 93 million miles.

Another astronomer, Greg Laughlin from Yale University, also believes that there may, in fact, be trillions of objects similar to Ouamuamua in the Milky Way, according to Space.com.

Oumuamua, the Hawaiian name for “pathfinder” or “scout,” was discovered in October 2017 by the PanSTARRS1 telescope after it spotted a new spot of light coming from a strange direction at an unusually fast speed.

For its part, NASA has said that it is a “metallic or rocky object” approximately 400 meters (1,312 feet) in length and 40 meters (131 feet) wide. However, the government space agency said in November it did not originally see the object, perhaps adding some credence to Forbes and Loeb’s theory.

Oumuamua is scheduled to enter Neptune’s orbit in 2022 and in approximately 20,000 years, will make its way out of the solar system for good.

Family leaving California restaurant narrowly avoids car plowing through outdoor patio

A family leaving a California restaurant narrowly avoided being hit by an out-of-control driver, and by mere inches, footage from outside the eatery shows.

Police in Napa Valley shared the astonishing video following Monday’s incident, during which a woman and two children, aged 2 and 3, were nearly struck by the car before the vehicle plowed into an outdoor eating space in front of the Villa Corona restaurant in Napa.

“This scary video is a good reminder to always be aware of your surroundings,” the Napa Valley Police Department wrote. “This family was just stepping out of a restaurant when the driver the car lost control.”

The two children seen in the footage were later transferred to a hospital, but said to have only suffered minor injuries, the Napa Valley Register reported.

The driver, 60, was also hospitalized with minor injuries following the crash. No arrests were made, according to the Register.

“It’s unbelievable,” Villa Corona owner Fernando Villasenor told the outlet. “I was just so grateful that [the kids] started skipping and running.”

Villa Corona employee Saldivar added that the scene played out “like a movie” in an interview with KRON.

“I’ve never seen anything like that in front of me,” she said, adding that tables, umbrellas, pots and the restaurant’s patio set went “flying” during the crash, just before the car crashed into a concrete wall behind a nearby house.

The cause of the crash was not immediately released by Napa police, though the department said the incident was not the result of a medical episode.

Villasenor estimates the damage to his restaurant to be somewhere around $10,000.

Alex Rodriguez revealed he practiced Jennifer Lopez proposal on his assistant to make it ‘perfect’

Westlake Legal Group alex-rodriguez-revealed-he-practiced-jennifer-lopez-proposal-on-his-assistant-to-make-it-perfect Alex Rodriguez revealed he practiced Jennifer Lopez proposal on his assistant to make it 'perfect' Tyler McCarthy fox-news/person/jennifer-lopez fox-news/entertainment/events/couples fox news fnc/entertainment fnc eba0becf-3ea6-5ee1-af1c-eaf3e155a140 article

Alex Rodriguez revealed that a lot of work went into his proposal to Jennifer Lopez, including several practice sessions done with the help of his assistant.

The two celebrities got engaged in March and announced the news on Instagram shortly after.

“She said yes,” Rodriguez captioned a photo of JLo’s hand with the massive rock.

During a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” the retired Major League Baseball star, 43, explained that he put far more work into the proposal than simply getting down on one knee during a beach walk.

“I planned it for about six months, and it was on a beach in the Bahamas,” he told Fallon.

The star explained that he didn’t want to leave anything up to chance, so he relied on his sports background and practiced.

“I had the ring, but what was interesting is the three days prior to me going down on one knee and getting engaged and asking for her, I rehearsed three days in a row because I wanted the sunset to be perfect.”

When a perplexed Fallon asked if he practiced by himself, Rodriguez revealed that he had his assistant stand in for JLo in rehearsal sessions for days prior to the big moment.

“You proposed to your assistant three times?!” Fallon said while laughing at his guest.

Rodriguez wasn’t kidding when it came to making sure the sunset was perfect. He revealed he spent three days trying to clock the perfect time of day to pop the question. However, some unpredictable weather made it more difficult than he anticipated.

“One time the sunset was at 6:27 [p.m.], the next day 6:29 [p.m.] and then the third day it was raining,” he said. “So, I kind of came out at around 6:29 [p.m.] and it worked out well,” Rodriguez said of the big day.

One month prior to the proposal announcement, the couple celebrated their two-year anniversary. The former Seattle Mariner, Texas Ranger and New York Yankee shared a heartfelt message to his now-fiancee.

Jana Kramer won’t hire a hot nanny because of husband Michael Caussin’s sex addiction

Jana Kramer forgives, but she doesn’t forget.

The “One Tree Hillactress turned country singer admitted she won’t hire an attractive nanny because of husband Michael Caussin’s history of cheating and ongoing sex addiction.

“I just don’t understand some of these girls that post pictures on Care.com because I’m like, ‘Don’t you know the female is hiring?’ I’m laughing at some of these pictures,” she said on her “Whine Down with Jana Kramer” podcast.

JANA KRAMER DESCRIBES FINDING OUT ABOUT HUSBAND’S CHEATING RIGHT BEFORE GOING ONSTAGE

“This one photo was like, ‘Hi, I’m 22 years old and I have perky boobs.’ Like, don’t post the perky boob photo. You’re not gonna be hired. I’m not hiring you,” she reiterated.

“The wives are hiring! I don’t see a guy going on Care.com and going through the nannies,” she ranted, adding, “I’m not saying post an ugly photo, I’m just saying… you should dress for the part. So, to the girls out there that are on Care.com, I wouldn’t put your Instagram [profile picture] … because I’m like, no, I’m not gonna hire you, sorry.”

JANA KRAMER FELT LIKE A ‘FAILURE’ AFTER MISCARRIAGES

Jana Kramer and husband Michael Caussin have come a long way since he cheated and was treated for sex addiction.

Despite Caussin’s history of cheating and Kramer’s evident insecurity, she insisted, “Not that I don’t trust my husband… I just think it’s not smart. I mean, you look at some of these nannies, and I’m like, ‘Well, you kinda asked for it, she’s kinda hot.’ You know what I mean? You’re in close quarters.”

She even pointed out Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale‘s respective nannygate scandals, noting, “Not saying that Ben Affleck [wasn’t] wrong, but you look at the nanny and I’m like, ‘Well, she’s really cute.’ You’re playing with fire. I feel like some of these girls — maybe some of those nannies like Ben Affleck’s and the Gavin Rossdale’s nannies — they put off more of a sexier vibe.”

JANA KRAMER APOLOGIZES FOR POKING FUN AT HER HUSBAND’S CHEATING

Affleck and Rossdale were each accused of hooking up with their nannies amid their divorces from Garner and Stefani.

Kramer and Caussin separated after just a year of marriage in 2016 when it was revealed he cheated on her numerous times. He sought treatment for sex addiction. The couple renewed their vows in 2017; he admitted he had a “relapse” in 2018 but that it didn’t include sex outside of their marriage. He’s now one year sober.

As for the aetsthetic Kramer seeks from her hired help, she said she wants an older woman with experience, cracking, “I’m going for more [of an] Alice from ‘The Brady Bunch.’”

‘Shadowy’ dark money network behind left-wing causes exposed in new report

Westlake Legal Group Dark-Money-2 ‘Shadowy’ dark money network behind left-wing causes exposed in new report fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning fox news fnc/politics fnc article Adam Shaw a83aa9fb-18b4-5082-8466-cb3b289c5eb0

An expansive network of “shadowy” dark money donors has grown to rival the influence of the conservative Koch brothers — pumping millions into left-wing causes ranging from health care to climate change to abortion — all while flying well under the radar of public scrutiny, according to an explosive new report obtained by Fox News.

The report, by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center, describes a band of nonprofits operating under the banner of Washington-based philanthropy company Arabella Advisors. Those “pop up groups” are housed in four Arabella-controlled “sister” nonprofits, according to the report: the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Hopewell Fund and Windward Fund.

EX-CLINTON OFFICIAL LEADS ‘DARK MONEY’ EFFORT TO BOOT KAVANAUGH FROM TEACHING GIG

“Together, these groups form an interlocking network of ‘dark money’ pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash,” the report says. “The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much of the professional Left’s infrastructure under a mask of ‘philanthropy.’”

The report says the “hydra-like” network brought in $1.6 billion between 2013 and 2017 “to advance the political policies desired by wealthy left-wing interests,” as the network’s revenues grew by 392 percent. The four Arabella-controlled “sister” groups brought in $582 million in 2017 alone, according to the report. If the four groups were a single entity, it would make them the 22nd largest public charity in America, with higher revenues than the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Planned Parenthood or the Clinton Foundation.

“The size and scope of the Arabella network of funds demonstrates far more ‘dark money’ exists on the left side of the political spectrum than has been previously admitted,” the report says.

Arabella’s website says the company was founded to “provide strategic guidance for effective philanthropy” and is “dedicated to helping clients make a difference on the issues that matter most to them, from climate to women and girls, education, good food, and more.” All told, the company represents clients with collective assets totaling more than $100 billion.

But the report alleges the group blurs the line between philanthropy and political advocacy on issues such as ObamaCare, gun control, abortion and opposition to the confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. And it says that due to the financial arrangements and lack of donor disclosure, “it is impossible to know which organization subsidizes the various campaigns and political movements spawned by Arabella’s funds.”

The company was founded by Eric Kessler, who has worked both in the Clinton administration, where he managed conservation issues, and as a member of the Clinton Global Initiative. He also founded the New Venture Fund and is on the board of the Sixteen Thirty Fund.

Arabella did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News. New Venture Fund President Lee Bodner told Fox News in a statement: “The New Venture Fund is proud of our work supporting charitable projects that improve peoples’ lives across a wide range of issues, funded by a diverse set of donors.”

The report claims the group runs a network of “astroturf” activities including as many as 340 “pop up” groups — which the report says are often little more than websites created to give the appearance of grassroots campaigns. It cites the organization’s activities pushing back against Republican efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare as an example of its political activism.

“At a glance, these groups — such as Save My Care and Protect Our Care — appeared to be impassioned examples of citizen activists defending ObamaCare,” the report says. “In reality, neither ‘not-for-profit’ advocacy group appears to have paid staff, held board meetings, or even owned so much as a pen.”

Consequently, the report says, the groups can be used to run “short-term, high intensity media campaigns targeting the news cycle” such as during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. The report gave the example of activists, led by Demand Justice, waving glossy “Stop Kavanaugh” signs in protest of the conservative nominee’s confirmation.

Demand Justice, led by former Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon, is very active on judicial issues — and is more than just a website. But the report described the organization as part of the broader network, specifically “a front for the Sixteen Thirty Fund.”

The Sixteen Thirty Fund, according to a July 2018 Politico report, was described as “among the most prolific political advertisers of 2018” and aired 6,885 broadcast TV ads between January and July while spending $4.6 million on TV alone. Politico cited the group as an example of the left embracing the “dark money” tactics it long accused the right of weaponizing.

LIBERAL ‘DARK MONEY’ GROUPS OUTSPENT CONSERVATIVE ONES IN 2018 ELECTIONS

Politico identified 12 groups set up through the Sixteen Thirty Fund on health care alone. By serving as those groups’ “fiscal sponsor,” Sixteen Thirty Fund manages the money and aggregates their financial activities in its tax filings — making it hard to work out how much money was spent by the different groups and where.

The new report says liberal mega-donor George Soros’ Democracy Alliance, for instance, used the Sixteen Thirty Fund and New Venture Fund to host several projects “that didn’t disclose their original funders.” The Capital Research Center report says that Arabella’s nonprofit network allows it to mask the “pop up” groups’ nature, making them seem like the work of “grassroots” activists rather than what it calls “front groups for multi-million-dollar non-profits.”

Conservatives, however, are still spending more “dark money” than liberals in some areas. Vice, citing a study by the Brennan Center for Justice, reported last year that groups supporting Kavanaugh’s confirmation spent at least $7.3 million on TV ads, while those opposing him spent at least $2.9 million.

Democrats and left-wing activists — including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. — have been increasingly vocal in their calls to clamp down and regulate “dark money” in U.S. political activities.

But dark money has had bipartisan beneficiaries.

A January report from Issue One, a bipartisan advocacy group, shows that liberal groups spent over half of the $150 million of dark money in the latest election. Conservative groups spent a third of the figure, while nonpartisan groups spent just 15 percent.

And Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., recently said that dark money is a problem “on both sides of the aisle,” though he said it “occurs mostly on the Republican side.”

The Capital Research Center report warns: “Before left-of-center activists and politicians demand laws to increase transparency in the funding of campaigns and public policy advocacy, they may first wish to consider voluntarily disclosing their own funding sources.”
