Top 10 Deadliest European Cities

When compared to U.S. data, European cities can be considered much safer in terms of murder rates. Europe does not contain any of the top 50 cities in the world with the highest murder rate. The “deadliest” city in Europe has less than one tenth of the homicides per 100,000 than the U.S. city with the highest homicide rate.

Here are the 10 European cities with the highest homicide rates, according to a report UN Office on Drugs and Crime released in 2019:

Sen. John Thune: Democrats are learning same lesson from impeachment as GOP in 1999

Senate Majority Whip John Thune, R-S.D., said Tuesday that Democrats are learning the same lesson the GOP did in 1999: Impeachment proceedings can actually be a boon to the sitting president.

Thune, who was the state’s lone congressman during President Clinton’s impeachment, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., likely knew an impeachment inquiry could hurt her party going forward but was “pushed into” starting one by far-left members of the Democratic Party.

REPUBLICAN SUSAN COLLINS ANNOUNCES SHE WILL VOTE TO ACQUIT TRUMP

“And I think the American people are paying the price for that,” Thune added. “But honestly, the president politically — and I think Republicans politically — are finding out the same thing we found out in 1999 with Bill Clinton — that his numbers went up and ours went down. And I think the president’s numbers are going up, and I think the Democrats numbers are going down.”

Regarding Wednesday’s final vote to convict or acquit President Trump on the two impeachment articles, Thune told host Bill Hemmer that there is only a “small universe” of Democrats who could side with the GOP.

“I think that there are some of them are going to be in a very tough spot if they vote to convict the president in the kind of states that they represent,” he said.  “I think that there are perhaps a few that are gettable. We will see. We will not know until tomorrow.”

Political observers have cited Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Doug Jones of Alabama as Democrats who could vote to acquit the president.

Shortly after Thune spoke to Hemmer, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, announced she would vote to acquit Trump on both articles of impeachment. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, is the only GOP member whose vote is in play.

CNN’s John King walks back claim that Biden campaign planned to challenge Iowa results: It was ‘stupid’

Westlake Legal Group John-King-CNN-GETTY CNN's John King walks back claim that Biden campaign planned to challenge Iowa results: It was 'stupid' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/iowa fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 620df262-8d4c-5e1b-8548-081193d3974a

CNN anchor John King appeared to be walking back his reporting on Tuesday that the Biden campaign had planned on challenging the results of the Iowa caucuses, which faced a lengthy delay due to voter-processing errors.

Amid the ongoing coverage of the chaos that has erupted from the first Democratic primary, King reported that campaign staffers from two of former Vice President Joe Biden’s rivals that they had heard that the Biden campaign was going to “file an injunction” in an effort to block the results from the Iowa caucuses from being released.

King on-air stressed that “we don’t know if that’s true.”

The Biden campaign offered a strong denial, saying it’s “100 percent false.”

King walked back his reporting on Twitter.

“Important: Team Biden says talk it may challenge IA release plans 100% untrue. In the breaking news rush my discussing, even skeptically, incoming from rival campaigns was, in a word, stupid,” King said.

Early results released by the Iowa Democratic Party showed Biden coming in fourth, earning 15.6 percent of support. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg has a slight lead in first place with 26.9 percent over Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with 25.1 percent. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. appeared in third with 18.3 percent.

Meghan Trainor opens up about ‘panic attacks’ she experienced on live TV: ‘I had a mental breakdown’

Meghan Trainor is speaking out about a trying moment in her career.

The singer spoke to Apple Music and opened up about overcoming a massive panic attack while announcing the 2017 Grammy nominations on live television alongside Gayle King.

Trainor’s nerve-wracking moment came just a year after she had taken home a Grammy of her own for best new artist.

“After ‘Thank You,’ which was my last album… I met the love of my life. Everything was great. And I had vocal problems ’cause I was working too much,” Trainor, 26, said, according to Entertainment Tonight.

She said she “finally collapsed physically and emotionally” due to her mental health struggles.

“I had, like, a mental breakdown and I had panic attacks live on television with Gayle King,” Trainor continued. “I was reading the nominees for the Grammys the year after I won and I was shaking and I was like, ‘Please don’t collapse on TV right now. We’re live.'”

Despite being able to harrow through the intense TV moment, the “All About That Bass” songstress said that once the taping was completed she “fell and started scream crying and couldn’t breathe.”

“And later, they took me away,” she added. “I was supposed to do more work and they were like, ‘We’re done. This is it.'”

“The Voice UK” coach explained the reason for her anxiety was due in part to mounting expectations as a successful recording artist and fears that canceling scheduled shows could prove detrimental to her fledgling career.

“I had a lot of people tell me, like, ‘If you cancel on this 30-minute set, we’ll never play Meghan Trainor ever again,'” she said. “So I had everything. I had my Grammy, I had what people dream of for years. I had everything I ever wanted, and they were threatening to take it away.

“So, my mind was like, ‘No I’ll keep going, I’ll keep going.’ And my body was like, ‘Bye.’ And my body had to tell me, instead of me being able to take a break,” Trainor added. “Like, the saddest thing is, like, your whole team is in the hospital with you like, ‘Everything’s gonna be OK.’ And you… cannot speak. So I was alone with my thoughts for way too long and I blew up. I freaked out.”

MEGHAN TRAINOR DEFENDS JENNIFER LOPEZ AFTER DR. LUKE BACKLASH: ‘IT’S RIDICULOUS’

The Four” judge explained that the combination of undergoing vocal surgery and experiencing other “crazy things” that she went through ultimately forced her to visit a psychologist.

“I met so many doctors and I would just cry to them, and be like, ‘It’s something right here. Can you just fix it for me? Help me out,'” she shared. “And finally I went to a psychologist and I said, ‘My back is burning, like, as if someone’s holding a torch to it. But I’m OK.’ And he was like, ‘OK, so what’s happening is your chemicals are like this and we gotta get them back here.'”

“And he gave me two medicines that I take every single day and it saved me. Saved my life,” she added.

Trainor released her new album, “Treat Myself,” last month after it was pushed back from its original August 2018 launch date and explained the inspiration behind its culmination.

MEGHAN TRAINOR TALKS WEDDING PLANS, WORKING WITH HER CO-STARS ON ‘THE FOUR’

“Trust my gut. Believe in myself. I try to write my songs that are like, treat yourself, remember to love yourself. It’s all to me,” she said. “It’s also all to my fans, but I keep listening to these songs and I keep having to remind myself. Like, baby girl, love yourself.”

When Fox News caught up with the “Lips Are Moving” singer in June 2018, she said that in her experience, being able to sustain a career in music has been much more difficult than breaking onto the scene as a new artist.

“I think it’s easier to break. I mean, they’re both very difficult,” Trainor said, speaking about the challenge of not only becoming a star but staying at the top.

“But for me, it was easier to break through than to sustain it, I’ve noticed. Because breaking through, I felt like I wasn’t working and they were just telling me, you have a number one! And, I was like on what, what do you mean? And nowadays, I’m like where are we?” she said with a laugh.

When Joe Biden exaggerated his academic record during angry rant in New Hampshire

Westlake Legal Group JoeBiden When Joe Biden exaggerated his academic record during angry rant in New Hampshire Matt London fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-hampshire fox-news/topic/fox-nation-opinion fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc article 14a0920f-f36d-5236-9f23-cf447476ce11

Former Vice President Joe Biden was in Nashua, N.H., on Tuesday, declaring that he’s “looking forward to making my case across the state.”  But it was here that then-Sen. Joe Biden got in a heated confrontation with a voter that derailed his first run for president in 1987.

In Fox Nation’s new docuseries “Proving Grounds: New Hampshire,” Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume reviewed the history of the first-in-the-nation primary and the role it has played in picking America’s presidents.

“Despite being one of the smallest states in the country, New Hampshire has a gigantic impact on U.S. politics as the first primary in the nation,” said Hume in the Fox Nation show. “It can make or break a presidential candidate.”

That “break” moment came from Biden after C-SPAN aired a video showing Biden campaigning in Claremont, N.H., on April 3, 1987.

A New Hampshire voter named Frank Fahey asked Biden, “What law school did you attend and where did you place in that class?”

“Who cares?” blurted out someone in the crowd, and Biden appeared to lose his temper.

“I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect,” said Biden, pointing at the man. “I went to law school on a full academic scholarship.”

“I was the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship. … The first year in law school I decided I didn’t want to be in law school and ended up in the bottom two-thirds of my class and then decided I wanted to stay and went back to law school and in fact ended up in the top half of my class,” he continued.

“I was the outstanding student in the political science department at the end of my year. I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school and 165 credits, you only needed 125 credits. And I’d be delighted to sit down and compare my IQ to yours, if you’d like, Frank.”

Several months later Biden released his academic records revealing that many of the credentials that he cited in the ranted in Claremont were not true.

In fact, Biden attended Syracuse law school on a half-scholarship and graduated near the bottom on his class.  Despite claiming that he improved his academic performance over time, the records did not indicate that he did.  And finally, he graduated with a dual major in history and political science — not “three degrees” as he stated.

WATCH: PLAGIARIZED IOWA SPEECH THAT SANK BIDEN’S 1988 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN 

By that time, Biden’s campaign was already weathering several scandals. It had already been revealed that Biden plagiarized the speech of British Labor Party leader in remarks that he delivered during a debate at the Iowa State Fair in August 1987. At the same time, Biden was accused of plagiarizing the remarks of Hubert Humphrey, Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy.

On top of all this, Biden acknowledged that he had plagiarized a paper in the first year of law school. The Washington Post ran the headline, “Biden Admits Plagiarizing in Law School,” and six days later he announced that he was dropping out of the race.

A Canadian artist’s depiction of Mr. Peanut “devouring” his son has gone viral, just days after the famous Planters mascot was resurrected from the dead as Baby Nut.

The artist, Nina Matsumoto, posted the provocative artwork on Twitter early Monday. The drawing terrifyingly depicts Mr. Peanut eating his little one, with peanut butter oozing out of its head.

The artwork is a nod to the famous Francisco Goya painting titled “Saturn Devouring His Son.”

Matsumoto’s painting quickly went viral online, garnering over 16,000 retweets and 66,500 likes as of Wednesday afternoon.

“I quietly posted this at 2 in the morning yet look what happened,” Matsumoto tweeted the next day after the drawing gained popularity online.

“Goya would be so flattered!” one Twitter user commented.

“This is the best thing to come out of the whole Baby Nut fiasco lol” another person tweeted.

“The only Baby Nut news that matters. What a classic,” someone else tweeted.

Other Twitter users inquired on how they could purchase a print of the artistic interpretation.

“My friend is really interested in having this art in their house. I was wondering if it will be available as a print, either on paper or canvas?” a Twitter user inquired.

It’s likely what the Internet will be talking about Mr. Peanut in the days come.

Just 10 days after Planters announced the sudden death of their 104-year-old mascot Mr. Peanut, the brand resurrected its dapper ambassador in the form of “Baby Nut,” reincarnated in infancy, with a gimmick that has social media commenters thoroughly divided.

During Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, Planters’ broadcast a 30-second spoof of the elder Mr. Peanut’s funeral, which included Mr. Clean and the Kool-Aid Man paying their respects. As the service proceeded, the teary Kool-Aid Man cried onto the grave’s mound of dirt as the clouds parted and a sprout magically grew from the earth.

Then, a baby-sized Mr. Peanut lookalike emerged from the plant’s leaves, complete with the famous mascot’s signature top hat and smile.

“What is that, a baby nut?” a stunned attendee wondered.

The Baby Nut cooed and made dolphin noises, revealing that all was well in the legume kingdom, after all.

“Just kidding, I’m back,” the nut announced. “Where’s my monocle?”

“Hello world, I’m happy to be back! I can’t believe everyone came together for little old me!” reps for the newborn peanut later tweeted, adding the hashtag #BabyNut.

California man who killed son for insurance is convicted of killing wife in 1991 for insurance

A man in prison for killing his son for insurance money has been convicted in California for killing his wife years earlier — and for the same reason.

The guilty verdict was returned Monday in the case of Karl Karlsen, 60, according to reports.

He was charged with setting a fire that killed his wife Christina Karlsen in 1991 in Murphys so that he could collect on a $200,000 life insurance policy he took out 19 days before her death, the Sonora Union-Democrat reported.

She died trapped in a bathroom with a boarded-up window, Mymotherlode.com, a news outlet, reported.

In 2013, Karl Karlsen pleaded guilty in New York to murdering his 23-year-old son for $700,000 in insurance.

Levi Karlsen died in 2008 in upstate New York. He was crushed under a truck that fell off a jack, according to reports. Prosecutors said Karl Karlsen staged the scene to look like an accident.

Karl Karlsen agreed to plead guilty in exchange for a prison sentence of 15 years to life, which he is currently serving.

In court Monday, Karl Karlsen exhibited no emotion as the verdict was read after a month-long trial that featured testimony from 35 prosecution witnesses, including members of his family and his wife’s family, the Union-Democrat reported.

“Three years is a long time to stand firm,” Christina Karlsen’s mother Arlen Melzer said afterward, according to the paper.

Karl Karlsen is scheduled to be sentenced in March and faces life without parole.

Defense attorney Richard Esquivel said his client would appeal the conviction.

Christina Karlsen’s death was reopened after Karl Karlsen went to prison for their son’s death.

He had also taken out insurance on his second wife, a revelation that led her to cooperate with prosecutors, The Associated Press had reported in 2013.

“I would be worth $1.2 million dead to Karl,” Cindy Karlsen testified in court.

George Washington elected 1st president: This Day in History

On this day in history, in 1789, George Washington was elected the first President of the United States.

Washington, then 56 years old, was unanimously elected by all 69 electoral votes, a distinction never achieved by any subsequent presidents.

Presidential electors were chosen from each state between Dec. 15, 1788, and Jan. 10, 1789. Only 10 states cast electoral votes, with New York having failed to put forth electors, and North Carolina and Rhode Island having not yet ratified the Constitution.

As a national hero, Washington was everyone’s first choice. He’d served as the commander in chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolution and was president of the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.

Per Article II of the Constitution, electors in the Electoral College have two votes and candidates who receive the majority are elected president. Candidates in second place are elected vice president. John Adams, who had served as the first U.S. ambassador to Great Britain, became the first vice president of the United States.

Washington took the presidential oath of office on April 30, 1789, at Federal Hall in New York City — then the capital of the United States — and was inaugurated as the nation’s first president.

Washington was unanimously reelected in 1792 but refused a third term. He died on Dec. 14, 1799, at his home in Mount Vernon, Va.

Hall of Fame voter opposing Derek Jeter keeps ballot private

The lone baseball writer who snubbed Derek Jeter for the Hall of Fame and ignited a firestorm of criticism for not voting for the New York Yankees captain has opted to keep their ballot private.

Jeter was elected to be enshrined in Cooperstown on 396 of the 397 ballots issued in the voting process. Jeter and Colorado Rockies slugger Larry Walker were both elected last month.

Walker was in his final year of eligibility. They will be inducted on July 26, along with catcher Ted Simmons and former players’ association head Marvin Miller, who were voted in last month by the Hall’s Modern Era Committee.

Jeter is a 14-time All-Star who played his whole career in New York and won five Gold Glove Awards as a shortstop.

Mariano Rivera, Jeter’s teammate for five World Series titles, became the first unanimous pick for the Hall last year when he appeared on all 425 ballots.

In 2011, the BWAA decided to make the ballots public but were overruled by the Hall’s board of directors, which gave each voter the option to make their ballot public.

Ryan Thibodaux’s vote tracker lists 331 ballots (83.4 percent), including five that are anonymous, and all included Jeter.
