North Korea says latest missile tests were ‘warning’ to US, South Korea over military exercises

North Korea said Tuesday that dictator Kim Jong Un supervised the latest live-fire demonstration of newly-developed short-range ballistic missiles, which Kim said was meant to send an “adequate warning” to the United States and South Korea over their joint military drills.

The bulletin from the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) came one day after South Korea’s military detected North Korea firing two projectiles into the sea.

NORTH KOREA FIRES TWO MISSILES INTO SEA TO KEEP PRESSURE ON WASHINGTON

A U.S. official told Fox News Monday that North Korea had launched two short-range ballistic missiles from its west coast that flew over the rogue nation before splashing down into the Sea of Japan. KCNA claimed the missiles accurately hit an island target off North Korea’s eastern coast.

The most recent launches were the regime’s fourth round of missile tests in less than two weeks and came minutes before the North’s Foreign Ministry denounced Washington and Seoul over the start of their joint exercises on Monday. The ministry’s statement said the drills, which North Korea sees as an invasion rehearsal, leave the country “compelled to develop, test and deploy the powerful physical means essential for national defense.”

The launches also came amid a standstill in nuclear negotiations and after President Trump repeatedly dismissed the significance of the country’s recent tests despite the threat the weapons pose to allies South Korea and Japan and to U.S. bases there.

NORTH KOREA LAUNCHES FIRST MISSILE TESTS SINCE HISTORIC TRUMP-KIM MEETING AT THE DMZ

The foreign ministry statement said Pyongyang remains committed to dialogue, but it may look for a “new road” if Washington and Seoul don’t change their positions.

Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the projectiles traveled about 279 miles on an apogee of 23 miles at a maximum speed of above Mach 6.9 before landing in waters off the country’s eastern coast.

It said the projectiles showed similar flight characteristics to short-range missiles North Korea fired on July 25, which traveled about 373 miles during launches the North described a “solemn warning” to South Korea over its plans to continue military drills with the United States.

Pop star Rita Ora shows off fit physique, catches sun rays in tiny two-piece bikini aboard yacht in Spain

Rita Ora never met a teeny bikini she didn’t like.

The 28-year-old pop star routinely selects bikini tops that are a size (or several) too small for her chest, and her latest might just be her skimpiest style yet.

ELIZABETH HURLEY, 54, STUNS IN BLUE BIKINI

While vacationing in Ibiza, Spain, over the weekend, Ora shared a sultry series of Instagram snaps clad in White Fox’s “Newport” bikini top ($54.95) and “Itsy” bottoms ($39.95) while aboard a yacht, prompting her fans to playfully troll the star over the fact that she was busting out of her black two-piece.

“Your bikinis never fit you,” one follower remarked in the comments, while another advised, “I think ur swimming suit is a bit too small for you maybe you should go and buy one in the adult section instead of child.” A third wrote, “Still buying bikinis from mothercare,” referencing the British brand famous for its baby clothes.

KELLY RIPA’S CANDID BIKINI PICTURE STUNS INSTAGRAM

Her fans’ concern didn’t stop Ora from living it up in her tiny suit; at one point, she even dared to defy the laws of physics (and risking a major wardrobe malfunction) by leaping off the boat into the sea.

Sean Spicer: Left-leaning entertainment industry glamorizes violence, then ‘wonders why’ shootings occur

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer accused the entertainment industry of promoting violence on “The Todd Starnes Show” Tuesday, and said they shouldn’t be surprised when mass shootings occur as a result of their product.

“You have a media, you have an entertainment industry that everyone on the left loves to talk about. But, the entertainment industry glamorizes violence and guns and then wonders why something like this happens,” he said.

Spicer also encouraged parents to take a more active role in overseeing their children’s media intake and said the idea of using violence to solve problems has been normalized through movies, music, and video games.

FATHER WHO LOST HIS SON TO GUN VIOLENCE EXPLAINS HIS ‘MISSION’ TO UNIFTY POLICE AND COMMUNITIES

“Parents need to be vigilant about what their kids are watching and doing and in the conversations that they’re having,” he said. “But we have gotten to a point where you’ve got…  a music industry, a movie industry, an entertainment industry, a video game industry — all that glamorize not just guns, but violence and death.

More from Media

“And then we wonder why young kids look at both suicide and violence towards others as an acceptable means and outcome. It’s not. And I think the funny part is to your point… those are all left-leaning industries. So no one wants to talk about those.”

Spicer also said the government must find the true societal causes of mass shootings to get to the root of the problem, rather than default to federal prohibition and regulation.

“Before we start talking about what we’re taking away from people, we need to figure out what causes it,” he said. “The issue we have to figure out is what causes someone to be radicalized in the case of terrorism, and what causes them to want to hurt or kill another human being.”

Gwyneth Paltrow says she’s moving in with husband Brad Falchuk nearly one year after wedding

Nearly one year after tying the knot, Gwyneth Paltrow and husband Brad Falchuk are finally moving in together.

The Oscar-winning actress, 46, stirred controversy when she revealed that she and her husband — known for co-creating “American Horror Story” and “Glee” — didn’t share a home following their September 2018 nuptials.

However, in an op-ed for InStyle’s special 25th-anniversary issue published on Tuesday, Paltrow confirmed that she’s since decided to move into a single home with her life partner.

GWYNETH PALTROW CALLED AN ‘EXTORTIONIST’ FOR EXPENSIVE ‘HEALTH SUMMIT’ THAT TURNED OUT TO BE GOOP SALES PITCH

“Married life has been really good. We took a year to let everybody [in the family] take it in and let the dust settle,” Paltrow told the outlet. “And now we’re moving in together this month.”

Later in the article, Paltrow lavished praise on her husband, who she described as being “a real equal” who challenges her on a daily basis.

“I adore my husband. He’s brilliant and deeply kind,” she says. “I feel like he’s a real equal too. And he pushes me in the best ways. I really like being married. It’s fun.”

GWYNETH PALTROW TALKS AGING IN HOLLYWOOD: ‘I’VE ALWAYS FELT SO FUNNY ABOUT MY LOOKS’

Earlier this year, Paltrow revealed that Falchuk only stayed at her house on nights and weekends, before heading back to his own home for the rest of the week.

In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle last month, Paltrow said the arrangement sounded “ideal” to many of her married friends, and that her intimacy teacher, Micaela Boehm, claimed it would increase “polarity” in their relationship.

Paltrow is no stranger to unconventional relationship practices. Following her divorce from Coldplay singer Chris Martin back in 2016, the “Shakespeare in Love” star called the split a “conscious uncoupling,” and has maintained a close friendship with her ex ever since.

MEGHAN MCCAIN DISMISSES GWYNETH PALTROW, BRAD FALCHUK’S PART-TIME LIVING SITUATION AS ‘RICH PEOPLE STUFF’

Elsewhere in the InStyle interview, Paltrow discussed raising her two children — 14-year-old daughter Apple and 12-year-old son Moses — with Martin. The “Royal Tenenbaums” actress claimed that having children “completely” changed her as a woman.

“Having children was so extraordinarily profound. It turned my world completely upside down in the best possible way,” Paltrow told the magazine. “I think women understand that there are different chapters to our lives. My life looked a lot different in that decade than it did in my 20s, when I was very immersed in acting. In my 30s my focus was my kids.”

GWYNETH PALTROW LAUNCHES GOOP MEN WITH NOD TO HUSBAND BRAD FALCHUK AND OTHERS WHO INSPIRED BRAND

She later added, “I was home most of the time. I was cooking with my kids and starting [her lifestyle brand] Goop. I was very happy doing the school runs and being domestic.”

Paltrow concluded the article by discussing her various secrets to maintaining her health, which she says is “a little bit of everything.”

“I’m almost 47 now,” Paltrow said. “At this stage I’ve realized the secret to wellness is a little bit of everything. It’s sleep. It’s hydration. It’s nutrition and exercise. It’s not being toxic. It’s watching your tongue. It’s being around people who love you and who are honest with you.

“It’s about seeing Dr. Dray — the dermatologist, not the rapper — in London or Paris, whenever I can get over there. And drinking is part of my wellness program too,” she added with a laugh.

Gutfeld on media coverage of the mass shootings

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6068708404001_6068700920001-vs Gutfeld on media coverage of the mass shootings Greg Gutfeld fox-news/us/crime fox-news/shows/the-five/transcript/gregs-monologue fox-news/opinion fox-news/media fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 3d469332-68d1-51ec-a925-1089f86f7364

A headline on a Boston Globe editorial says: “The hypocrite in chief takes on domestic terror.” But even if President Trump were a hypocrite, he’d be doing more to take on “domestic terror” than the Boston Globe or any of its siblings in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles.

Want proof? Read the papers.

The Globe is talking about the El Paso story because it’s a horrible, mass public shooting, but also because the shooter fits the media’s desired profile.

GARY BRUBAKER: EL PASO, DAYTON — ‘MONOPOLY’ DOESN’T CREATE SLUMLORDS. VIDEO GAMES DON’T SCHOOL PSYCHOPATHS

But just when a reporter or a politician points his finger at “evil” Trump, another event comes along to upset the narrative.

Dayton is the other event. It gets less exposure, maybe because the fiend is a leftist.

More from Opinion

You can’t call Trump a Nazi if all you have to work with is a socialist.

So to maintain the storyline about “rhetoric,” one killer’s background matters more than the other.

Other stories continue to be ignored.

While the media were in El Paso, nearly 50 people were shot in Chicago. Seven died. In the first 28 days of July, Chicago witnessed 42 homicides.

It’s a fact: the media choose stories based on explosiveness, to get eyeballs. Chicago’s violence doesn’t rate. And like the Dayton story, it may not reinforce the media’s point of view.

Meanwhile, the media’s blanket coverage of one story can influence the future. It’s not the only variable, but feeding a spectacle can increase the chances of another one happening.

This network doesn’t repeat the killer’s name for that reason.

But it’s not the name that matters anyway.

These days, it’s the political advantage.

El Paso shooting survivor shares harrowing story from hospital

Westlake Legal Group El-Paso-Survivor El Paso shooting survivor shares harrowing story from hospital Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc article 93bb634d-869f-566a-bcd7-d863b97c4ca5

When gunshots rang out at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart on Saturday, Octavio Ramiro Lizarde was one of 27 people injured. Worse still, his 15-year-old nephew was one of 22 who killed.

On Tuesday, shortly before undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound to his foot at Del Sol Medical Center in El Paso, Lizarde shared his harrowing story of survival and loss with reporters.

First and foremost on his mind was his slain nephew, Javier Rodriguez: “I did lose my nephew right in front of me. … It was a horrible image and I hope nobody ever goes through (that).

“It’s very painful,” added Lizarde, 23. “And I just hope that my family and I get better emotionally.”

VICTIMS OF EL PASO SHOOTING INCLUDED MOTHER SHIELDING SON FROM BULLETS, TEEN ABOUT TO START SOPHOMORE YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL

At the time of the shooting, Rodriguez was weeks away from starting 10th grade. The Texas American Federation of Teachers (Texas AFT) wrote in a Facebook post that Rodriguez attended Clint Independent School District, a public school district in eastern El Paso County.

Among the 22 killed in Saturday’s shooting, 13 were U.S. citizens and seven Mexican nationals. The fallen were as young as 15 and as old as 90, according to a list from the medical examiner’s office distributed at a news conference on Monday afternoon.

As Lizarde revisited the memory of that grim Saturday at Walmart, he sat in a wheelchair, surrounded by family and friends as he tried to recall the chaotic episode with precision.

“I heard the gunshots,” he said, remembering how the sound sent people running.

“I grabbed him [Rodriquez], and shots were fired. So I took him to the back of the room … and everything happened to my nephew and when I was trying to call back to where he was hiding he [the gunman] shot my foot,” Lizarde said.

The mass shooting — one of the deadliest in modern U.S. history — unfolded around 11 a.m. Saturday. The gunman — 21-year-old Patrick Crusius is suspected in the violent spree — opened fire in the store, initially killing at least 20 and injuring another 27. Two more gunshot victims have since died.

EL PASO SHOOTING VICTIMS IDENTIFIED, INCLUDING 7 MEXICAN NATIONALS

Lizarde told reporters he’s grateful to be alive. “He had the chance to kill me but he didn’t,” he said, “because God’s with me.”

Dr. Justin Orr, an active-duty member of the military and an orthopedic surgeon with William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, was scheduled to operate on Lizarde on Tuesday afternoon.  Orr told reporters Lizarde’s recovery could take up to a year, if not longer, and will involve no fewer than three successive operations.

“Of course there is a high risk of infection in cases like this with high-velocity gunshot wounds,” Orr said, citing the risk that Lizarde could yet lose his leg. “It’s not just the bone loss that Octavio has. It’s also the tremendous amount of soft-tissue damage. And that’s why the surgery we are going to do today is going to try to minimize the risk of long-term complications with infection.”

Despite the looming challenges, Orr said he is “very optimistic” that Lizarde will walk again.

Officials with the hospital told reporters Lizarde and the other victims of Saturday’s shooting will not have to worry about treatment costs because of “victims’ survivor funds and other mechanisms of compensation.”

Ex-ESPN host, frequent Trump critic, Jemele Hill lands book deal

Westlake Legal Group Jemele20Hill20AP20FBN Ex-ESPN host, frequent Trump critic, Jemele Hill lands book deal Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/sports fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/genres/books fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/media fnc article 3d23d380-943e-5a12-8f86-2ad6bc096fb0

A former ESPN host who made headlines for her frequent attacks on President Trump has landed a book deal.

Atlantic staff writer Jemele Hill will publish a memoir with Henry Holt and Company for a 2021 release, the publisher revealed in a statement Tuesday.

Henry Holt revealed in a press release that after a “highly competitive auction,” the publisher bought the North American and audio rights to the upcoming book.

“As ‘SportsCenter’ viewers realized years ago, Jemele has a lot to say,” Henry Holt executive editor Barbara Jones said. “As Atlantic readers know, her journalism is as swiftly exacting as it is wise. What everyone will discover when we publish Jemele’s memoir is her significant literary talent.”

ESPN REMINDS STAFF TO STICK TO SPORTS, NOT TALK POLITICS AFTER STAR RIPS TRUMP ON-AIR

“I’m truly thankful to be publishing my first book with Henry Holt,” Hill said. “They have an excellent reputation and a consistent track record of amplifying some of the most compelling, thoughtful and respected thinkers in the country.”

Hill made headlines in 2017 when she called President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter. She also called Trump a “bigot” who is “unqualified and unfit to be president.” The now-former ESPN star’s comments back in 2017 caught the attention of the White House and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who said she considered the rhetoric a “fireable offense.” Trump even got involved himself, mocking Hill and ESPN’s ratings.

ESPN initially declined to punish her for the tweet but then sidelined her for two weeks in October 2017, after she violated the company’s social media guidelines again. The second violation occurred when she called on fans to boycott the Dallas Cowboys’ advertisers after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they did not stand up during the national anthem.

Earlier this year, Hill deleted a tweet that jokingly referenced the assassination of the president during his State of the Union address.

Buttigieg releases plan to battle domestic terrorism in wake of shooting massacres

In the wake of the dual massacres in El Paso and Dayton, Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg on Tuesday released a comprehensive campaign proposal that he argues will do more to protect Americans from homegrown violence.

The South Bend, Ind., mayor spoke out firmly against white nationalist violence in the hours following the massacre at a Walmart in El Paso, which killed 22. His policy proposal would invest $1 billion to “prevent and combat radicalization and violent extremism.”

DEMOCRATS DENOUNCE WHITE NATIONALISM AFTER EL PASO MASSACRE

Among the tent poles of the policy are efforts to bolster law enforcement with resources to prevent domestic terror attacks before they occur, stop radicalization and the spread of extremist violence online, and reform gun laws to keep firearms from people who shouldn’t have them.

The $1 billion Buttigieg is pledging to law enforcement would specifically be spent expanding the FBI’s ability to prevent domestic terror attacks by expanding its domestic counterterrorism field staff. The campaign cites a congressional testimony by the senior vice president of programs for the Anti-Defamation League.

In the testimony, George Selim references a study that found that 71 percent of Islamist-inspired terrorism arrests in the United States occurred in the planning phase before the violence occurred. However, with far-right extremists in America, the opposite is true; over 71 percent of American far-right extremists successfully carried out violent acts before their death or arrest.

Buttigieg’s plan would also reinvest in the Department of Homeland Security by undoing cuts imposed by the Trump administration on the agency – and specifically its staff dedicated to fighting violent extremism.

Expanding the focus of law enforcement and the intelligence communities on domestic terror attacks, like the one in El Paso, would be effective in mitigating some of the violence, said Scott Stewart, a counterterrorism expert at Stratfor and former investigator for the State Department.

Trying to limit access to weapons by dangerous people is probably a good idea. … It’s crazy to me that someone with rape and kill lists was able to buy a gun legally.

Much of that increased focus should be on predictive behavior, he said, which identifies warning signs and helps law enforcement intervene before a bullet is fired.

Most of these shooters, Stewart said, have a long trail of warning signs.

“Trying to limit access to weapons by dangerous people is probably a good idea. … It’s crazy to me that someone with rape and kill lists was able to buy a gun legally,” he said in reference to the man who opened fire on a crowd outside a bar in Dayton, killing nine.

Instituting universal background checks, closing the “boyfriend loophole,” supporting red flag laws and banning assault weapons are a few of the gun law reforms Buttigieg outlines in his policy.

A critical portion of counterterrorism in recent years has been closing down propaganda and recruitment networks online. Pushing the Islamic State from Twitter and other mainstream web platforms was critical in stemming the flow of recruits and support for the organization.

DOMESTIC TERRORIST HUNT: WHO’S GOING TO CATCH THEM AND HOW?

Attacking the online platforms used by white nationalists in America is more difficult, given the First Amendment protections they are afforded. Buttigieg’s plan calls for coordination between social media platforms and the government to “limit the spread of hateful ideology.”

The policy recognizes the limitation of enforcing speech online, stating that platforms can “identify and track far-right extremism, within the boundaries of internet companies’ terms of service and consistent with the First Amendment.”

The white supremacists, I believe recently, have begun to copy the kind of propaganda that ISIS has used.

— Scott Stewart, Stratfor terrorism expert

“There is a lot that the social media companies can do, depending on how they frame their terms of service,” Stewart said. “… The more you force it underground, the more it impedes their ability to recruit new adherents to the ideology.”

Stewart said the rise of mass shooters who act without group affiliation is reflected both in American domestic terrorism and jihadism abroad.

“The white supremacists, I believe recently, have begun to copy the kind of propaganda that ISIS has used,” Stewart said. “These [white supremacists] have been there forever, but they didn’t have the same kind of overt violence, glorifying violence, thing that we have now with these newer sites.”

Increasingly, domestic terrorists are acting alone. After the law enforcement cracked down on white supremacist organizations in the 1980s, they began embracing “leadership resistance.”

“That’s what the white supremacist group is today,” Stewart said. “There is no white supremacist version of the Islamic State, there is not white supremacist equivalent of Al Qaeda. They’re consuming this propaganda and acting on their own.”

Alec Baldwin’s daughter, Ireland, told him to ‘get over’ her racy social media posts

When Ireland Baldwin posted a cheeky photo of herself to Instagram last month, it quickly prompted her dad Alec Baldwin to respond. Now, the 23-year-old model is addressing her father’s comments.

“I’m sorry. What?” Alec — who shares Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger — wrote in the comments section of the photo, which showed his daughter nearly-nude standing on a balcony.

Speaking to Us Weekly at the Weedmaps Museum of Weed grand opening in Los Angeles on Friday, Ireland explained that her dad was “not joking” when it came to his reaction. “That’s how dads are,” she added.

The risqué photo — which has garnered 45,000 likes since it was first posted — also caught the attention of Ireland’s uncle, Billy Baldwin. “Tough one for Uncle Billy to ‘like.’ #awkward,” he wrote.

However, despite the strong reactions from her family members, Ireland’s opinion hasn’t changed: she’s still going to post racy pics in the future.

“I like being naked,” she explained to the outlet. “The slut-shaming and all the s–t that I get all the time from posting a photo, I don’t even look at comments anymore. People are wasting their time, honestly. … I’m going to continue to be naked and it’s fun and everyone should be. Honestly!”

As for the social media pictures her father takes issue with the most?

“The photos I get yelled at by my dad are the ones where I am drunk-eating at night at 2 a.m. at IHOP,” she explained. “I posted this video, like, drinking maple syrup, and he was like, ‘You have to take that down! No one’s going to take you seriously.’

“And I’m like, ‘Get over it, old man,'” Ireland told the “Saturday Night Live” star, 61.

Instagram photos aside, Ireland’s career in front of the camera is taking off. She’s the face of Guess brand and in 2018 she signed with Muse Models after starting out with IMG.
