Deer caught shedding antlers in “spectacular and unique” camera footage

Westlake Legal Group 8-point-buck Deer caught shedding antlers in "spectacular and unique" camera footage Michael Hollan fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/vermont fox-news/great-outdoors/hunting fox news fnc/great-outdoors fnc article 7fa89cef-120d-5586-9720-212f1f26518a

Anyone looking for a pair of antlers?

Footage shows a deer shedding its antlers in the middle of the night. Amazingly, the animal appears to quickly shake off the antlers, despite their substantial size.

The footage was uploaded to Facebook by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. In the video, the deer almost appears to be scratching an itch on its head before quickly shaking the antlers free and darting off camera.

The video was captured in early January by a trail camera set up in Northfield, Vermont, by Ann Sivori. Vermont Fish and Wildlife described the footage as “spectacular and unique.”

In response to a comment on the footage, Sivori explained that she isn’t a hunter and hadn’t set up any bait for the animal. Instead, it appears that the deer was eating apples that had fallen from a nearby tree.

The footage has been viewed over 13,000 times and has received over 1,800 reactions.

This isn’t the only “unique” deer footage to be captured recently.

Hugo, Minnesota, native John Dolan shared a video of an incredible moment on Facebook last week: his son walking alongside a deer on a neighborhood street.

“My son was going to get mail and I noticed the deer coming close to him,” Dolan wrote. “It’s the coolest and craziest thing I have ever seen. A beautiful healthy doe, just cruising the neighborhood.”

In the video, Dolan tells his son to pet the wild animal. As he does so, the friendly deer moves in closer to him, almost commanding him to keep petting it. The deer then walks over to Dolan as he continues to record and he, too, begins to pet the animal.

Suddenly, the deer walks onto their driveway and continues to walk around with them, taking in as much affection it can from its newfound human friends.

“It’s like a dog,” Dolan’s son said.

R.E.M. Considers Legal Action To Stop Trump From Using The Band’s Songs

Westlake Legal Group 5e1f668624000031006c3db4 R.E.M. Considers Legal Action To Stop Trump From Using The Band’s Songs

The bass player for the now-defunct rock band R.E.M. wants to stop President Donald Trump from using the group’s songs after Trump’s reelection campaign played two of its tunes at a rally in Milwaukee Tuesday night.

R.E.M.’s Mike Mills said Wednesday the band ― which broke up in 2011 after decades of success ― was “exploring all legal avenues” to prevent Trump from using their tunes at the political gatherings. Mills went on to characterize the president as a “fraud” and “con man,” saying the band does “not condone the use of our music” by him.

The R.E.M. songs “Everybody Hurts” and “Losing My Religion” played at Tuesday’s event before Trump took the stage and celebrated his administration’s assassination of Iran military leader Qassem Soleimani, on of the most powerful figures in the Middle East.

Soleimani’s death escalated conflict between the U.S. and Iran and, many experts worry, intensifies the danger facing American assets and troops in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. 

Mills is a vocal opponent of Trump and his policies, often insulting him in tweets. On Sunday, he called Trump an “Adderal-deranged idiot” who is “renting our troops out as mercenaries” in response to Trump’s questionable claims about Saudi Arabia paying for additional U.S. troops dispatched to that country.

Mills has railed about Trump’s use of R.E.M.’s songs since 2015, when the businessman began his first presidential campaign.

“Go f*** yourselves, the lot of you―you sad, attention grabbing, power-hungry little men,” Mills tweeted that year. “Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.”

At that time, Trump’s campaign was using R.E.M.’s song, “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine).”

Other musicians and singers have pushed back against the use of their music in politics without prior approval, especially when they have been played at Trump events.

Adele, Rihanna, Aerosmith and Elton John are just a few pop stars who have urged the president’s campaign to stop using their material at such gatherings. Aerosmith and Rihanna have even sent Trump cease-and-desist letters, though it is hard to enforce this type of legal action.

LSU’s Joe Burrow: Odell Beckham Jr. was handing out real cash to teammates

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow said in a podcast interview Wednesday that the money Cleveland Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. was seen handing out in a viral video after the national championship game was real.

Burrow confirmed on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” that Beckham was handing out cold hard cash to LSU wide receivers Justin Jefferson and Jontre Kirklin.

“I’m not a student-athlete anymore, so I can say yeah,” Burrow said on the episode.

ODELL BECKHAM JR. RAISES EYEBROWS AFTER HE APPEARS TO HAND CASH TO LSU PLAYERS AFTER GAME

Beckham, an LSU alum, was on the confetti-laden field of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and furiously giving cash to the players. The players appeared to be receiving $100 bills from the Cleveland Browns star.

It would be a clear NCAA violation if it was found out the money was real. A school official told The Advocate that it was investigating the matter. After initially telling the newspaper the money was not real, the official later said that just because novelty bills were found on the field after the game, it wasn’t clear whether or not the novelty bills came from Beckham.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron was asked about the bills and said it was the first he was hearing about it.

Patrick Queen, the Defensive Player of the Game, said he didn’t see Jefferson or Kirklin receiving money from Beckham.

Jefferson had nine catches for 106 yards. Kirklin did not have a catch in the game. He told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday that he was declaring for the NFL Draft.

Honduran migrants gather to try forming new caravan

Hundreds of people, mostly Hondurans, began walking and hitching rides from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Wednesday in hopes of starting another migrant caravan similar to one that traversed through Mexico and inundated American border agents in 2018.

Their attempt to form another caravan comes as Mexico has begun stepping up efforts to block migrants from arriving at the southern border amid pressure from the Trump administration. Many migrants are seeking asylum in the United States, citing endemic poverty and increases in crime and gang activity in their Central American countries.

“We aren’t living here, we’re just surviving,” said Elmer Garcia, 26, a migrant from the town of Comayagua, Honduras. “So it doesn’t make much difference if you die there, or die here.”

Wednesday’s journey could face obstacles from Mexican authorities, which broke up a number of attempts to form caravans last year.

“The truth is, it is going to be impossible for them to reach the United States,” said human rights activist Itsmania Platero. “The Mexican police have a large contingent and they are going to catch all the migrants without documents and they will be detained and returned to their home countries.”

In an attempt to decrease the flow of migrants, the U.S. has entered into bilateral agreements with Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to deny people the opportunity to apply for asylum in the U.S. in an effort to enlist other countries to help deal with the ongoing crisis.

Migrants are instead sent back to Central America with an opportunity to ask for protection there.

Gerson Noe Monterroso, 34, said he’s been unemployed for five years and sees the journey to the U.S. as an opportunity. He left his home in Choloma, just north of San Pedro Sula, with dreams of finding a job to send money back to his family.

EL SALVADOR PRESIDENT SAYS HIS COUNTRY MUST FIX PROBLEMS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO US IMMIGRATION CRISIS

He was making the trip Wednesday with his toddler in his arms. His other children are with their grandparents back home, he said.

Israel Connor, a Nicaraguan who has been living in Honduras since fleeing political and social upheaval, left Wednesday with his wife and their three children, ages 3 to 5.

“We are going to struggle, but if God is with us, nobody can stop us,” said Connor. “We know we are going to get through Guatemala, and God will soften the hearts of the Mexican authorities.”

After arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, migrants seeking asylum are given a series of options: One is to be sent back to Guatemala as part of a “safe third country” agreement with the U.S. or their home country. Another is entering into the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) — also known as “Remain-in-Mexico” — where they can wait out their cases in Mexico.

The program ended the practice of “catch-and-release” by where immigrants were released into the U.S. to await their hearings.

Critics and human rights advocates say sending migrants to countries marred by violence puts them in danger. The Trump administration recently started returning Mexican migrants deep into the country, as far down as Guadalajara.

The plan marks a change from past protocols, which called for releasing migrants at the border. Homeland Security officials expect to return 250 Mexican migrants each week.

Navy may arm new destroyer with conventional missile able to hit anywhere on Earth in an hour

ARLINGTON, Va. – The weapon, now being considered by Navy weapons developers for the emerging USS Zumwalt, will bring new attack options to the stealthy destroyer being prepared for combat as soon as 2021, Capt. Kevin Smith, Zumwalt-class destroyer Program Manager said Jan. 15 at the Surface Naval Association Annual Symposium.

“This would be the perfect platform for Conventional Prompt Strike,” Smith said.

The Conventional Prompt Strike weapons program, which emerged [in] the era of former President George W. Bush, is designed to arm a ballistic missile with a conventional warhead, bringing the range and speed similar to a nuclear weapon to conventional strike.

The weapon has virtually unprecedented range for a conventional weapon and has the ability to hit anywhere in the world in a matter of minutes in some instances.

The concept of the weapon is to enable fast attack against enemy targets from safe standoff distances quickly, potentially at the beginning of a conflict. This would enable rapid attack without having to wait for deployment options or placing vital war assets in closer range of enemy attack. In essence, should a conflict quickly break out, CPS will give command authority a “rapid hit” option to possibly deter further war or destroy crucial enemy targets with “tactical surprise.”

NAVY STRATEGY FAST-TRACKS NEW WEAPONS FOR ‘OFFENSIVE’ ATTACK

Firing this weapon from the new stealth destroyer brings several new strategic and tactical advantages.

First and foremost, arming the ship with CPS aligns with the service’s strategic requirements for the ship which, as of 2017, migrated from an initial conception of a largely land-attack destroyer to the “premier strike platform in the surface fleet,” Vice Adm. Rich Brown, Commander, Naval Surfaces Forces, said at the SNA symposium.

As a “blue water” attack platform, the Zumwalt is now being prepared for major power warfare on the “open ocean” and therefore armed with long-range weapons, sensors and other lethality-enhancing technologies.

Also, the integration of this long-range strike weapon onto a maritime platform such as the new Zumwalt will capitalize on the ship’s stealthy characteristics, thus allowing for surprise attacks with a lower chance of being detected by enemy sensors. The ship is built with external contours designed to be less detectable to enemy radar.

“The inherent capability of this ship is signatures. (stealth, low radar signatures) It is designed to be stealthy and carry the fight offensively to the adversary,” Smith said.

NAVY ACCELERATES NEW SHIP RADAR TO SUPPORT EMERGING ‘SEA-ATTACK’ STRATEGY

Arming the Zumwalt with this weapon, Smith explained, is at the moment merely something being considered or “looked at” for future possibilities and not yet a program of record.

While the program has had various starts and stops in recent years, Congressional decision-makers and Pentagon weapons developers are now giving the weapon a new push toward operational status. A 2019 Congressional Research Service Report, called “Conventional Prompt Global Strike and Long Range Ballistic Missiles,” cited increased budget requests for the program. In particular, the Pentagon’s 2019 budget request increased its desired amount for CPS from $201 million in 2018 to $278 million in 2019, the report says.

Part of the program’s ups and downs over the years relate to some stated concerns that, if a conventional weapon travels with the speed, range and trajectory of a nuclear-armed missile, adversaries might be confused as to the precise nature of an attack — and mistake it for a nuclear attack.

NAVY PLANS ‘BLUE FORCE’ OPEN WATER WEAPONS STRATEGY FOR NEW FRIGATE

“CPS could upset stability and possibly increase the risk of a nuclear response to a U.S. attack,” the Congressional report states.

Despite this stated concern, developers of the weapon say that it would be distinguishable and not function as a substitute for nuclear weapons but rather a way to “supplement U.S. conventional capabilities,” the CRS report explains.

Navy SEAL, doctor becomes astronaut: ‘A true privilege and honor’

Westlake Legal Group Tweet-US-EMBASSY-SEOUL Navy SEAL, doctor becomes astronaut: 'A true privilege and honor' Frank Miles fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/us/military/navy fox-news/science/air-and-space/nasa fox news fnc/science fnc be3ad5cf-85f7-5123-bb45-af8f4a9fa0c6 article

He was a physician who trained at Harvard University.

He served as a Navy SEAL.

Now he is set to become the first Korean-American to join a NASA mission in space.

Dr. Jonny Kim, son of poor South Korean immigrants who arrived in Los Angeles in the early 1980s, is the American Dream.

The 35-year-old started his career as a seaman recruit after graduating from Santa Monica High School in 2002.

“I didn’t like the person I was growing up to become,” Kim said in a 2017 profile in the Harvard Gazette about his decision to enlist. “I needed to find myself and my identity. And for me, getting out of my comfort zone, getting away from the people I grew up with, and finding adventure, that was my odyssey, and it was the best decision I ever made.”

As a member of SEAL Team 3, he served as a combat medic, sniper, navigator and point man on more than 100 combat operations across two deployments to the Middle East.

His duty led him to his next career.

Kim told the Gazette about a wounded comrade: “He had a pretty grave wound to the face. It was one of the worst feelings of helplessness. There wasn’t much I could do, just make sure his bleeding wasn’t obstructing his airway, making sure he was positioned well. He needed a surgeon. He needed a physician, and I did eventually get him to one, but … that feeling of helplessness was very profound for me.”

In 2012, he earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics at University of San Diego. He earned a medical degree in 2016 at Harvard Medical School.

One year into a four-year residency at Massachusetts General Hospital he was selected as a NASA astronaut candidate.

Out of more than 18,300 applicants, only Kim and 11 other Americans were selected for the 2017 class.

Training started in 2017, and he graduated the program last Friday.

“A true privilege and honor to walk among the @NASA Astronaut Corps with my brothers and sisters. We know there are many qualified and deserving candidates out there – we’re the lucky ones to represent humanity. Let’s work towards a better future for our world and our children,” he tweeted on Monday.

As a member of NASA’s Artemis program, the triple threat is eligible for future missions to the moon, and perhaps even Mars.

“I’m excited for the adventure,” Kim told the Gazette in 2017. “I think it’ll be another occupation where I say, ‘I can’t believe I’m getting paid for doing this.'”

Westlake Legal Group  U.N. Court: Ruling To Be Issued Next Week In Rohingya Genocide Case

Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto leader, addresses the International Court of Justice during last month’s hearings in The Hague, Netherlands. The court has announced that a decision in the case will be issued next week.

Peter Dejong/AP

The International Court of Justice in the Netherlands announced Wednesday that it is poised to make a decision on whether it will order Myanmar to put an end to what human rights watchers say has been a campaign of genocide against the country’s Rohingya Muslim minority.

The United Nation’s top court says the order will be handed down on Jan 23.

In November, the West African nation of Gambia filed a lawsuit with the U.N. court, accusing Myanmar ‘s security forces of a brutal crackdown on the Rohingya that prompted more than 700,000 to flee the country for refugee camps and Bangladesh and left at least 10,000 dead, human rights groups estimate.

The suit specifically asks that the court “take all measures within its power” to prevent acts that amount to the crime of genocide, including killings, physical abuse, rape, sexual violence and burning of homes and livestock, which the suit alleges Myanmar has committed with the intention of trying “to destroy the Rohingya as a group.”

Human rights organizations have for years documented violence and discrimination directed toward the Rohingya, and the legal action taken by Gambia adds to the large body of research that has emerged since international groups say the campaign against the Muslim minority started in 2017.

Gambia’s action marks the first time a country without any direct link to the alleged atrocities has used its membership in the Genocide Convention to bring a case before the court.

While the court does not have enforcement powers, it is still a part of the U.N., meaning the order is being closely watched by human rights advocates around the world, since the order could set into motion repercussions if the country violates the court’s ruling.

“Other UN bodies could take steps to increase the power of the ICJ’s order and, by extension, increase the political cost should Myanmar fail to comply,” says Human Rights Watch.

In a separate legal process, the International Criminal Court is now investigating possible crimes against humanity committed in the country.

“Myanmar’s failure to hold its military accountable for atrocities against the Rohingya is finally turning the wheels of international justice,” said Phil Robertson, who is the deputy Asia director for Human Rights Watch. “Two international courts are now examining whether Myanmar committed genocide and who should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity against the Rohingya.”

Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto leader, defended the country’s actions during court hearings last month, saying there was no genocide orchestrated against the Rohingya.

Suu Kyi argued that her country’s security forces had simply responded to coordinated attacks by Rohingya insurgents, claiming the hundreds of thousands who fled the country were attempting to escape the violence, not the country’s military.

“The Gambia has placed before the court an incomplete and misleading factual picture of the situation in Myanmar,” she told the court, asking that the case be dropped. “If war crimes have been committed by members of Myanmar’s defense services, they will be prosecuted through our military justice system in accordance with Myanmar’s constitution.”

The 15-judge panel in the Hague rarely handles genocide cases, focusing mainly on disputes between countries under international law.

However the court rules, the order can be appealed and could take years to complete the case.

Gambia’s request for an immediate court order came as the first stage of a case in which it accuses Myanmar of breaching the Genocide Convention in its campaign against the Rohingya. Myanmar rejects the claim.

The full case will likely take years to complete.

CNN’s Brian Stelter lampooned on social media over documentary announcement

CNN’s critics had fun with the network’s in-house media reporter Brian Stelter on Wednesday when he promoted an upcoming documentary about “disinformation and the cost of fake news” on the heels of the liberal network settling a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit filed by Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann amid various other controversies.

“HBO just announced something I’ve been working on for a couple of years: A documentary titled ‘AFTER TRUTH: DISINFORMATION AND THE COST OF FAKE NEWS.’ The film will premiere on TV and online this March,” Stelter tweeted.

CNN SETTLES NICK SANDMANN DEFAMATION LAWSUIT

The film is directed by Andrew Rossi and executive produced by Stelter. It aims to explore “the rising phenomenon of ‘fake news’ in the U.S. and the impact that disinformation, conspiracy theories and false news stories have on the average citizen,” according to WarnerMedia.

“After Truth: Disinformation and the cost of fake news” will help explain “how post-truth culture has become an increasingly dangerous part of the global information environment,” the company added.

CNN’s critics had fun with the network’s in-house media reporter Brian Stelter on Wednesday when he promoted an upcoming documentary about “disinformation and the cost of fake news.”

Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News that “it’s hard to tell if this is a documentary or an autobiography.” 

“One of the most amazing things about the news media is they can’t even envision how people will look at what they are doing in a critical way,” Gainor said.

In addition to the recent settlement with Sandmann, Stelter’s tweet came as CNN was trending on social media because of backlash to CNN political correspondent Abby Phillip’s performance during the network’s Democratic debate in Iowa on Tuesday night.

The network cited unnamed sources close to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who claimed that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., told her that he didn’t believe she could win a presidential election because she’s a woman. Sanders denied the claim, but Warren affirmed the report — leading to a widely panned debate moment.

Despite Sanders’ debate stage denial, CNN’s moderator immediately turned to Warren and asked, “What did you think when Sen. Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?”

The moment was condemned by pundits on both sides of the aisle and resulted in a variety of disparaging hashtags related to the liberal network.

“CNN is usually a punching bag for conservatives in the Trump era, but I can’t say I’ve seen it so harshly criticized from the left as it is today due to last night’s debate and particularly the treatment of Bernie,” wrote The Hill media reporter Joe Concha.

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that it’s “incredibly ironic” the documentary was announced at the same time that “CNN is grappling” with a debate that was even panned by the far-left MSNBC.

“Add in Stelter’s recent complaint that calling D.C. journalists ‘swamp creatures’ is ‘hateful speech’ and you have quite the week for HBO to announce his latest ride atop his high horse,” Houck said, referring to a recent segment when the CNN media reporter condemned White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley for criticizing reporters.

Stelter’s announcement was immediately hit with criticism and mockery.

The announcement also came one day after attorney Michael Avenatti, who was a CNN guest hundreds of times at the height of his fame, was arrested over allegations that the high-profile lawyer scammed a client out of $840,000. Stelter once famously declared that he was taking Avenatti “seriously” as a 2020 Democratic presidential contender – so many critics responded to the documentary news with footage of the 2018 interview.
