Tim Allen doesn’t mind being the butt of the only Golden Globes joke Ricky Gervais regrets

On Sunday, comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes for a fifth time, offering some of his most brutal jokes to date.

Despite ripping into the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Disney and more, Gervais recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he only regrets one of his infamous jokes.

In 2011, Gervais, 58, introduced Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, who were set to present an award together.

“The first [presenter] is an actor, producer, writer and director whose movies have grossed over $3.5 billion at the box office,” said Gervais in 2011. “The other is Tim Allen.”

Gervais told THR that the joke wasn’t directed at Allen specifically, but would have been made about anyone.

“I didn’t want Tim Allen to think, ‘Oh, that was written for me,’ ” said Gervais. “ ‘Why me?’ Well, because you were standing next to Tom Hanks.”

Allen, however, didn’t seem to mind.

The “Home Improvement” star, 66, told Page Six that while he wasn’t exactly offended by the joke, it did leave him a bit confused.

“Perhaps I didn’t get it… I wasn’t the only one,” said Allen. “Tom [Hanks] and I even said [at the time]: ‘I didn’t really get it. It’s like he didn’t finish the joke. It just went flat.’ Later that night he said, ‘It didn’t go so well.’ He kind of apologized.”

“I wanted to bring to your attention that the cleanliness and overall maintenance of this facility is exceptional,” the letter noted, according to the Idaho Statesman.  The letter was dated Jan. 3 and posted online on  Monday.

“Also, your bailiffs, program staff and all corrections officers have been nothing short of patient, respectful and encouraging; adding humor on the days when it’s needed most,” the missive continued.

The letter was opposite of what the Carver County sheriff’s office normally receives and officials took to Facebook in order to praises the staff at the facility, the Statesman reported.

Sen. Mike Lee: The Senate’s not a jury – these impeachment guidelines set by founders are clear

Westlake Legal Group Sen20Mike20Lee20FBN Sen. Mike Lee: The Senate's not a jury – these impeachment guidelines set by founders are clear Mike Lee fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate/democrats fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 88689202-daec-5569-a868-17470cac178f

On Jan. 15, 1999, near the end of the second day of the Senate impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, Impeachment Manager Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga., made a lengthy presentation during which he referred to the senators in his audience as “jurors” no fewer than six times.

At the close of Barr’s speech, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, raised an objection with Chief Justice William Rehnquist, who was presiding over the trial. “I object to the use and the continued use of the word ‘jurors’ when referring to the Senate sitting as triers in a trial of the impeachment of the president of the United States,” Harkin said.

After a lengthy argument from the senior senator from Iowa, Rehnquist sustained Harkin’s objection. “The chair is of the view that the objection of the senator from Iowa is well taken,” Rehnquist replied, “that the Senate is not simply a jury; it is a court in this case. Therefore, counsel should refrain from referring to the senators as jurors.”

BETSY MCCAUGHEY: ON TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, DON’T BELIEVE CHUCK SCHUMER

Not a single senator objected to Rehnquist’s ruling (even though the Senate could have overruled it by a simple majority vote). And no impeachment manager was allowed to refer to the Senate as a jury after Harkin’s objection. The ruling was correct because, according to both the Constitution and historical precedent, senators are absolutely not jurors.

More from Opinion

Article I, Section 3, Clause 6 of the Constitution does state that senators “shall be on Oath or Affirmation” when trying an impeachment. And that oath includes the promise to “do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws,” similar to the oath taken by ordinary juries.

But Article III, Section 2, Clause 3 specifically sets impeachment apart from jury trials, providing that “The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by jury.”

Why does the Constitution specifically separate juries from impeachment?

Because the authors of the Constitution knew impeachment – for good or ill – was an inherently political act. James Wilson, one of the nation’s first Supreme Court justices and one of the principal architects of the Constitution, described impeachment as “confined to political characters, to political crimes and misdemeanors, and to political punishments.”

By its very nature, the Senate’s role in the impeachment process clearly indicates that senators are not passive observers of the trial.

Given the inherently political nature of impeachment, senators neither can nor should set aside political considerations when hearing an impeachment trial. Senators are expected to weigh the best interests of the country in each and every vote and defend the Madisonian institutions of government established by the Constitution from all attacks — including those from politicians who might seek to oust a sitting president over policy disagreements.

By its very nature, the Senate’s role in the impeachment process clearly indicates that senators are not passive observers of the trial. The Constitution gives the Senate the sole power to set its own rules. Under the Senate’s long-established impeachment rules, senators decide what evidence should be heard, how it should be presented and what witnesses should (or should not) be called. They can even override the presiding officer, who in the case of a presidential impeachment is the chief justice.

No jury can do that.

Juries also are expected to be ignorant of the facts of a case before they hear it, and they are generally precluded from serving if they know each other or the defendant. Again, the Senate possesses none of these attributes of a jury.

 In Federalist 66, Alexander Hamilton argued that dividing the power of impeachment and removal between the House and Representatives and the Senate would “guard against the danger of persecution, from the prevalency of a factious spirit” in either chamber.

Considering how deeply divided our nation is, there can be little doubt that a “factious spirit” is driving this impeachment. It was both prescient and providential that our founding fathers saw fit to guard against this by placing the final say on conviction and removal not in the hands of the House of Representatives, a court, some specialized tribunal, or even a jury, but in the Senate. We, therefore, must not confuse the role of a jury with that of the Senate in an impeachment trial.

At least 35 people were killed and another 48 injured in a stampede Tuesday that broke out during a funeral procession for the Iranian general killed last week in a U.S.-led airstrike, according to Iranian state media.

The incident occurred in Gen. Qassem Soleimani’s hometown of Kerman, in southeastern Iran, according to Iran’s state media. The report quoted the head of Iran’s emergency medical services, Pirhossein Koulivand, according to the Associated Press.

Iran has promised retaliation on American interests in the Middle East after an airstrike Thursday at Baghdad International Airport killed the leader of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, and five other people.

A procession in Tehran on Monday drew over 1 million people in the Iranian capital for the man viewed as a national hero. The funeral continued into Iran’s holy city of Qom, where another massive crowd turned out, before Soleimani’s remains and those of the others killed in the airstrike were brought to a central square in Kerman, where the general was set to be buried Tuesday.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Puerto Rico hit with 6.5 magnitude earthquake, island-wide blackout reported

Westlake Legal Group puerto-rico-earthquake Puerto Rico hit with 6.5 magnitude earthquake, island-wide blackout reported fox-news/us/us-regions/us-puerto-rico fox-news/us/disasters/earthquakes fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 68dd4fd9-9119-51c0-9a1e-965b53c63f9e

A 6.5 magnitude earthquake was registered off the coast of Puerto Rico on Tuesday that reportedly caused an island-wide blackout.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit just south of the island at a shallow depth of roughly 6 miles. A tsunami warning was not issued. There was no immediate report of injuries or damage.

The latest earthquake comes less than 24 hours after a 5.8 magnitude quake struck before dawn on Monday\. The earlier quake caused damage to the coastal town of Guanica. It also destroyed the famous Punta Ventana stone arch, an iconic landmark described as a “natural wonder.”

The flurry of quakes in Puerto Rico’s southern region began the night of Dec. 28. Victor Huerfano, director of Puerto Rico’s Seismic Network, told the AP that shallow quakes were occurring along three faults in Puerto Rico’s southwest region: Lajas Valley, Montalva Point and the Guayanilla Canyon.

 

He said the quakes overall come as the North American plate and the Caribbean plate squeeze Puerto Rico.
 

One of the largest and most damaging earthquakes to hit Puerto Rico occurred in October 1918, when a magnitude 7.3 quake struck near the island’s northwest coast, unleashing a tsunami and killing 116 people.

The Associated Press contributed to the report

As press questions intel, an unlikely voice blames Soleimani’s stupidity

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6120029053001_6120023384001-vs As press questions intel, an unlikely voice blames Soleimani’s stupidity Howard Kurtz fox-news/columns/media-buzz fox news fnc/media fnc f330efce-75d6-55b2-ab19-aa2279fb5a20 article

Seventeen years after the press rolled over for faulty intelligence on Iraq, journalists are training a harsh spotlight on disputed intelligence on Iran.

It’s healthy for the media to question how President Trump decided to take out Qassam Soleimani, and to examine the far-ranging consequences — though some of the coverage has been cloaked in the usual anti-Trump hostility.

Several network and cable anchors pressed Mike Pompeo during his Sunday rounds on whether he could prove that the general was plotting “imminent attacks”—the details of which the secretary of State called an “irrelevant distraction.”

SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW SOLEIMANI FUNERAL CROWDS THRONGING STREETS OF TEHRAN

But it’s not irrelevant, given that the administration’s rationale that time was of the essence, not just that Soleimani was a bad guy responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans. And with leaked accounts of unnamed officials calling the intelligence thin, the controversy was inevitable.

Yet given the journalistic hand-wringing over what happened in 2003, news outlets have an added incentive not to allow history to repeat itself.

When George W. Bush was trying to sell the country on Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, the press was filled with stories about the CIA’s “slam-dunk” assessment, and Colin Powell unveiled his charts at the United Nations.

After no WMDs materialized, Bob Woodward would tell me: “We did our job, but we didn’t do enough, and I blame myself mightily for not pushing harder.” There was a “groupthink” among intelligence officials, Woodward said, and “I think I was part of the groupthink.”

Len Downie, then the Washington Post’s executive editor, told me “we were so focused on trying to figure out what the administration was doing that we were not giving the same play to people who said it wouldn’t be a good idea to go to war…Not enough of those stories were put on the front page. That was a mistake on my part.” And some pieces were delayed or killed.

The New York Times, in a note to readers, said that “questionable” information was “insufficiently qualified or allowed to stand unchallenged. Looking back, we wish we had been more aggressive in reexamining the claims as new evidence emerged—or failed to emerge.” The Times public editor said the paper ran “some rather breathless stories built on unsubstantiated ‘revelations’” by officials with vested interests.

SUBSCRIBE TO HOWIE’S MEDIA BUZZMETER PODCAST, A RIFF OF THE DAY’S HOTTEST STORIES

That sense of guilt and failure continues to cast a shadow over the press. The intelligence community has also been taking flak from the president itself as he denounces some of its players on Russia and Ukraine. Still, intelligence by its nature is a flawed human enterprise, and it’s tough to release the raw material without jeopardizing sources and methods.

On the political front, the press is casting the retaliation threats from Iran, its withdrawal from the Obama nuclear agreement and the Iraqi parliament’s move to expel U.S. forces as the unintended consequences of Trump’s decision.

“For three years,” the Times said yesterday, “President Trump’s critics have expressed concern over how he would handle a genuine international crisis, warning that a commander in chief known for impulsive action might overreach with dangerous consequences.

“In the angry and frenzied aftermath of the American drone strike that killed Iran’s top general, with vows of revenge hanging in the air, Mr. Trump confronts a decisive moment that will test whether those critics were right or whether they misjudged him.”

But there was a contrarian take from Tom Friedman, the three-time Pulitzer winner who knows the region’s hatreds as well as any journalist on the planet.

“One day they may name a street after President Trump in Tehran,” he said in his Times column—this from a liberal commentator who generally supported Barack Obama and is a fierce Trump critic.

The reason? “Because Trump just ordered the assassination of possibly the dumbest man in Iran and the most overrated strategist in the Middle East.”

Rather than the evil genius portrayed by much of the press, he says, Soleimani is an idiot who squandered the lifting of sanctions that was part of the 2015 deals and helped plunge his country into poverty and protests that left some critics jailed or killed.

Soleimani did this by fighting proxy wars against Americans and in such places as Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Israel, says Friedman, freaking out U.S. allies and forcing the Trump administration to take action. The use of pro-Iranian militias to storm the American embassy in Baghdad was one provocation too far.

It is too soon to gauge the magnitude of the repercussions. The 2020 Democrats are all campaigning against Trump’s decision. But as the Friedman column makes clear, Soleimani bears much of the blame for his own downfall.

Iran Guard leader vows to ‘set ablaze’ US-backed places, Netanyahu reportedly distances Israel from killing

The leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard on Tuesday threatened to “set ablaze” places supported by the United States over the killing of a top Iranian general in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad last week, prompting a crowd of supporters to cry “Death to Israel.”

The latest threat came shortly after a report indicated that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is working on distancing Israel from the U.S.-led airstrike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Netanyahu told Security Cabinet ministers that the attack “is a U.S. event, not an Israeli event, and we should stay out of it,” according to a report in Axios.

NETANYAHU SAYS ISRAEL SHOULD ‘STAY OUT’ OF FALLOUT FROM US KILLING OF SOLEIMANI, PER REPORT

Hossein Salami, the leader of the Revolutionary Guards, made the pledge before thousands gathered in a central square in Kerman, Soleimani’s hometown.  Mourners dressed in black and carried posters bearing the image of the former head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force, who along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, and five other people were killed in the U.S.-led airstrike near the Baghdad International Airport in Iraq last week.

“We will take revenge. We will set ablaze where they like,” Salami told the crowd, drawing the cries of “Death to Israel!”

Netanyahu issued a statement with brief congratulatory remarks last week to President Trump after reports of the killing. A former chief of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards said Sunday the Israeli city of Haifa and Israeli military centers would be included in Tehran’s retaliation for Soleimani’s death, according to Reuters.

In a rare appearance before Iran’s National Security Council Monday, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said any retaliatory attack on American interests in the Middle East should be carried out openly by Iranian forces themselves, the New York Times reported, citing three Iranians familiar with the meeting. The bold order deviates from Iran’s usual tactic of hiding behind proxies in the region.

Khamenei openly wept over Soleimani’s casket Monday as a crowd said by police to be in the millions filled Tehran streets to mourn over the man viewed as a national hero.  His slaying already has pushed Tehran to abandon the remaining limits of its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers as his successor and others vow to take revenge. In Baghdad, the parliament has called for the expulsion of all American troops from Iraqi soil, something analysts fear could allow Islamic State militants to mount a comeback.

Iran’s parliament, meanwhile, passed an urgent bill declaring the U.S. military’s command at the Pentagon in Washington and those acting on its behalf “terrorists,” subject to Iranian sanctions. The measure appears to mirror a decision by Trump in April to declare the Revolutionary Guard a “terrorist organization.”

After a public funeral procession in Tehran that continued into  Iran’s holy city of Qom, where another massive crowd turned out, Soleimani’s remains and those of the others killed in the airstrike were brought to a central square in Kerman, a desert city surrounded by mountains that dates back to the days of the Silk Road where he will be buried later on Tuesday.

Wisconsin driver shoots 2 kids after they threw snowballs at car, cops say

A manhunt is underway for a Milwaukee driver who allegedly shot two children after they threw snowballs at passing vehicles on Saturday.

The Milwaukee Police Department said they responded to a shooting on the 6100 Block of West Birch St around 7:50 p.m., where they found a 12-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

Officers applied first aid to the victims who are being treated at an area hospital. A manhunt is underway for the driver of a white Toyota, who left the scene of the crime, according to police.

Local resident said she heard the shooting and said the driver should “turn himself in.”

“It was like boom, boom, boom, boom all in succession,” she told FOX 6 Milwaukee. “Do you really need to shoot somebody because they shot a snowball?”

Back in December, the town of Wausau, Wis. — located roughly 200 miles northwest of Milwaukee — was thinking of passing an ordinance which would lift a decades-old ban on throwing snowballs. The 1962 ban was made to limit the throwing of rocks and other items that could cause harm on public property, and snowballs were placed into that category.

The Wausau Police Department posted a video of Deputy Chief Matt Barnes back in December, explaining the ordinance was “put in place for a good reason… it’s for the safety of our community” — as police officers threw snowballs behind him.

The department said they issued citations about 10 times in the last 15 years, with two cases involving throwing snowballs at moving vehicles.

“There’s ordinances like this throughout the United States. To individuals in our community: a fun snowball fight is a fun snowball fight, and that’s not something we enforce this ordinance with,” the deputy police chief said.

The Milwaukee Police Department said anyone with more information on the alleged shooting should call them at 414-935-7360, or Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.

Hawley rallies GOP colleagues to move to dismiss articles of impeachment

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., joined fellow Republicans Monday to introduce a resolution allowing the chamber to dismiss articles of impeachment against President Trump for lack of prosecution, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi delays sending the case for trial.

The resolution would update Senate rules to allow the chamber to bring a motion dismissing the articles.

“The House Speaker is trying to run the United States Senate, she is trying to hijack the trial, she is trying to obstruct the trial,” Hawley said Monday on “Hannity.”

“She is really subverting the constitution because the constitution says the House has the power to impeach, the Senate has the power to try the case…and it’s time for the Senate to fight back.”

The Senate has a set of 26 rules that govern all impeachment proceedings, which presume a “prompt delivery of the articles of impeachment to the Senate following their adoption by the House.”

Hawley’s resolution would allow the Senate to dismiss the articles of impeachment for lack of prosecution, once the House has withheld articles for 25 calendar days or more. Under the proposed rule, any senator would be able to move to dismiss the articles once the time period has elapsed. That motion would then be voted upon by the full Senate.

Pelosi has held the articles of impeachment for 20 days. The House voted to adopt the articles on Dec. 18, 2019.

“We heard nothing but how urgent it was that the president be removed…now…no urgency at all and I think that that shows the only urgency on the part of the Democrats and Pelosi was an urgency to pursue their personal vendetta against the president of the United States,” Hawley said of the delay.

“They never accepted his election, they never wanted him in office…but now when it’s time to put up or shut up, and actually put their evidence forward, they’re afraid to do it because they don’t have any evidence. It’s a sham.”

“The Senate is ready to have a trial, the president deserves to have a trial, the American people deserve a trial so we can put this thing to rest,” Hawley said.

At the center of the inquiry is Trump’s efforts to press Ukraine to launch politically related investigations — regarding former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s dealings in Ukraine, as well as issues related to the 2016 presidential election.
