Marine killed in action in Iraq is ID’d by Pentagon

The Marine who died Saturday in Iraq’s Nineveh province while assisting the country’s security forces was identified as Gunnery Sgt. Scott A. Koppenhafer, a 35-year-old from Mancos, Colo., the Pentagon said.

The highly regarded critical skills operator, who was assigned to the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion,  was struck by enemy small-arms fire. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Opinion: Simone Biles isn't just best gymnast of her time, she's an athlete for the ages

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Opinion: Simone Biles isn't just best gymnast of her time, she's an athlete for the ages

SportsPulse: Simone Biles is the greatest gymnast her sport has ever seen and over the weekend she further cemented herself alone at the top. USA TODAY

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Simone Biles is human, after all.

Like the rest of America, Biles wanted to get another look at her historic triple twisting-double somersault pass on floor exercise, and she didn’t really want to wait another two hours to do it. So with time to kill until the rest of the rotation was complete, she dug her phone out of her gym bag, went on Twitter and found NBC’s video of it.

And then she retweeted it.

“I didn’t want to be the last person to see it!” Biles said, laughing.

“I just made sure I landed it OK,” she added. “I wanted to see how it looked.”

There is where her mere mortality ends, however.

It is easy to lose sight of just how spectacular Biles is, because she routinely does what was once considered impossible — and not that long ago, at that. When she came back to gymnastics after taking a year off following the Rio Olympics, it wasn’t for more titles or medals. It was because she wanted to push herself, to see just how much she could wring out of her considerable talents, and she’s done that.

Repeatedly.

But then there are nights like Sunday, when she does something so amazing, so awe-inspiring, that you are reminded we are watching greatness before our eyes.

And not greatness in the way that’s tossed around for every above-average athlete. True greatness that people will remember decades from now, recalling the details as if it happened only a year or two ago. Think Muhammad Ali’s Rumble in the Jungle, Michael Jordan’s flu game, Serena Williams’ win at the Australian Open when she was pregnant or Michael Phelps’ out-touching Milorad Cavic to win his seventh gold medal at the Beijing Olympics.

The triple-double is so difficult no other woman has ever done it, and few men even try it. Yet Biles got so much height Sunday the folks in the first half-dozen rows had to crane their necks to see her. The NBC replay showed she was actually above its boom camera, which means someone could have parked an SUV on the floor and Biles would have cleared it easily.

Take that, NBA Dunk Contest participants.

“You can tell from the crowd’s reaction when her name is mentioned. She’s such a draw,” said Tom Forster, the women’s national team coordinator. “Our sport hasn’t had one person, really, in that iconic role in a really long time.”

What makes it all the better is that Biles doesn’t fully appreciate just how big a deal she is.

Oh, sure. She recognizes there is a “Simone division,” as Aly Raisman coined it, and one for everybody else. How could she not? Biles has won every meet she’s entered since the 2013 national championships, often by large margins. She was almost five points ahead of second-place Sunisa Lee on Sunday night, a gap comparable to those non-conference routs by the SEC’s football powerhouses.

Biles won five medals at the Rio Olympics, four of them gold, and has more world titles than any other gymnast, male or female.

But in Biles’ mind, as a gymnast, she’s a small fish in the sports world’s big pond. Told that Mikaela Shiffrin, a two-time Olympic gold medalist in Alpine skiing, had retweeted the video of the triple-double with a crown emoji, Biles’ eyes widened.

“Whenever they retweet it or I see they reach out on Instagram, I feel like my heart stops because I’m like, ‘Wow, they actually notice me,’ ” she said.

Game recognizes game, as the saying goes, and there is an argument to be made that Biles is the best athlete in the world right now. Yes, better than Shiffrin, better than Williams, better than LeBron James, better than — you get the picture.

Every time she takes the floor, she changes her sport. Dazzling as her triple-double was, it wasn’t her only first this weekend. On Friday, she did a double-twisting, double somersault off balance beam. When coach Laurent Landi was asked if she would be bringing back “the Biles,” he grinned and asked, “Which one?”

Skills are named for the first gymnast who competes them at a world championships or an Olympics. Biles has so many, she’s lost count of them.

(For the record, the question to Landi was about her signature vault.)

“She’s crazy good,” Lee said. “She does stuff that I never thought people could do.”

To be clear, most people can’t. But Biles isn’t most people. She’s a special athlete who does spectacular things. Appreciate her singular greatness while you can because it won’t last forever, and we won’t see anyone like her again.

Priyanka Chopra called out as ‘hyprocrite’ by audience member during panel

Priyanka Chopra was called a “hypocrite” on Saturday during a Beautycon panel talk in Los Angeles by an audience member who accused her of encouraging war in the India-Pakistan conflict.

Ayesha Malik, who is Pakistani, was handed the microphone during a Q&A portion of Chopra’s panel discussion on global beauty standards.

“It was kind of hard hearing you talk about humanity because as your neighbor, a Pakistani, I know you’re a bit of a hypocrite,” Malik said to the Indian actress and film producer.

The woman referred to a Feb. 26 tweet in which Chopra wrote, “Jai Hind,” which means “Victory to India,” and the hashtag #IndianArmedForces.

“You are a UNICEF ambassador for peace and you’re encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan. There’s no winner in this. As a Pakistani, millions of people like me have supported you in your business of Bollywood —” Malik continued before the microphone was grabbed away.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA SAYS SHE WAS BULLIED FOR HER RACE IN HIGH SCHOOL: ‘IT AFFECTED MY SELF-ESTEEM’

Chopra quickly responded to the woman, saying, “I hear you. Whenever you’re done venting. Got it? Done? OK, cool.”

“I have many, many friends from Pakistan and I am from India,” she continued.

“And war is not something that I’m really fond of, but I am patriotic, so I’m sorry if I hurt sentiments to people who do love me and have loved me, but I think that all of us have a sort of middle ground that we all have to walk, just like you probably do as well.”

Chopra then criticized Malik’s approach in the way that she addressed her.

“The way you came at me right now, girl, don’t yell. We’re all here for love. Don’t yell. Don’t embarrass yourself,” she said. “Thank you for your enthusiasm and your question and your voice.”

On Sunday, a Twitter account identified as Malik addressed the controversial moment.

“Hi, I’m the girl that ‘yelled’ at Priyanka Chopra. It was hard listening to her say, ‘we should be neighbors and love each other’ — swing that advice over to your PM,” she tweeted.

“Both India and Pakistan were in danger. And instead she tweeted out in favor for nuclear war.”

Malik accused Chopra of gaslighting her, tweeting, “She gaslit me and turned the narrative around on me being the ‘bad guy’ — as a UN ambassador this was so irresponsible.”

With Epstein’s Death, Accusers Seek New Legal Recourse

Westlake Legal Group  With Epstein's Death, Accusers Seek New Legal Recourse

This March 28, 2017, photo, provided by the New York State Sex Offender Registry, shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein died by apparent suicide while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

AP

With Jeffrey Epstein’s death by apparent suicide on Saturday, his accusers lost any chance to watch him stand trial for the sex trafficking and conspiracy charges brought by federal prosecutors in Manhattan last month.

But they may still have other ways to pursue justice.

The wealthy financier was found unresponsive in his jail cell while awaiting trial at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. Epstein had been put on special observation status, under which he would be housed with a cell mate and receive check-ins from prison staff every 30 minutes. In the hours leading up to Epstein’s death, that was not happening, a person familiar with the investigation told NPR’s Ryan Lucas.

Epstein’s death “effectively ends” the criminal case against him, says Kerry Lawrence, who spent a decade as a federal prosecutor in the same office that brought charges against Epstein in July.

That leaves Epstein’s accusers with the option of pursuing civil cases against his estate, Laurie Levenson, a former federal prosecutor and Loyola Law School professor, told NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday.

“The recourse is through the civil cases, the lawsuits against his estate,” said Levenson.

That’s a direction that at least some of Epstein’s accusers appear to be heading toward. On Saturday, Lisa Bloom, an attorney for several of Epstein’s accusers, posted to Twitter calling for the administrators of Epstein’s estate to “freeze all his assets and hold them for his victims who are filing civil cases.”

“Our civil cases can still proceed against his estate … We’re just getting started,” she wrote.

The exact size of Epstein’s estate remains a mystery, but according to Bloomberg, the estate included a $77 million mansion on New York’s Upper East Side, an island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a ranch in New Mexico and homes in Paris and Palm Beach, Fla. He had a net worth of at least $500 million, according to Bloomberg.

Lawrence says he thinks it will be difficult to proceed with a civil action since Epstein can’t be put on trial for his alleged crimes. “He wasn’t deposed, and now he’s not available to defend himself,” he says. “Any restitution that they might have sought for victims or forfeiture of assets in connection with the prosecution all effectively disappear.”

The strength of any potential civil cases could hinge on what federal prosecutors uncover in what they say will be an ongoing investigation.

In a statement released Saturday, Geoffrey S. Berman, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, said the investigation into Epstein’s sex trafficking case will continue. Berman said his office’s investigation into the “conduct charged in the Indictment — which included a conspiracy count — remains ongoing.” The mention of the conspiracy count suggested prosecutors may be turning their focus to Epstein’s past associates.

It remains unclear who, if anyone, might become the focus of any widening investigation. Just one day before Epstein was found dead, court filings in a lawsuit against one of his longtime confidantes, Ghislaine Maxwell, were unsealed. According to the Miami Herald, in a deposition Maxwell denied allegations that she helped Epstein acquire girls or young women.

“The prosecutors have said that they’re continuing to investigate. Now, they didn’t bring charges against any of the co-conspirators when they did charge Epstein, so I’m not sure how likely it will be,” said Levenson. “But there’s a lot of pressure on them now, given that Epstein’s gone, to find out who else was involved and whether they can be criminally charged.”

While federal prosecutors press ahead with their investigation, Paul Cassell, a law professor at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, says he intends to double down on the work he’s been doing for the last 11 years — trying to make it possible for federal prosecutors in Florida to go after certain alleged co-conspirators in what he calls the financier’s “large criminal apparatus.”

In 2008, Epstein was convicted in state court but shielded from federal prosecution under a plea deal that granted him — as well as four unnamed co-conspirators and “any potential co-conspirators” — immunity from all criminal charges, the Miami Herald reported.

Epstein pleaded guilty to two counts of solicitation of prostitution, including one with a minor, and was sentenced to 18 months in jail, but was allowed to leave for work five days a week and was released five months early. Former U.S. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta resigned from his post last month after facing scrutiny for his role in brokering the deal during his time as a U.S. attorney.

Cassell, who represents four of Epstein’s alleged victims, is pushing to get the non-prosecution agreement thrown out — a move that could expose any of Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators to federal prosecution in Florida. He says it could also open doors for federal prosecutors in New York.

In February, a judge ruled that the agreement had violated the victims’ rights. Now, says Cassell, the judge must decide what the remedy for that violation should be. If the judge decides to toss out the agreement, prosecutors in Florida could have a new path toward pursuing charges against Epstein’s associates.

She might be voted most likely to suc-sssssseed.

A wayward snake photobombed a back-to-school picture of a seventh-grader in Alabama who was lining up for the perfect photo next to a tree in Auburn.

Brooke Mills, the girl, was posing for a “Summer’s Over” picture on Thursday, according to AL.com. The picture is traditional at the beginning of the school year, the report said.

“Lord it was scary,” the girl’s mother told the paper.  She said she tried to keep her composure, but she told her daughter to get away from the tree.

“I said it calmly, but I’m sure my face said it all,” she said.

Conservative Pundit S.E. Cupp Quits The NRA In Powerful Plea For Gun Control

Westlake Legal Group 5d50d16e240000a945937eef Conservative Pundit S.E. Cupp Quits The NRA In Powerful Plea For Gun Control

Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, a longtime NRA advocate once featured as an “NRA Mom” in an ad campaign, said she has quit the organization in an emotional call for stronger gun control laws. 

“I am so sick and tired of participating in this predictable cycle of politics, where a mass shooting happens, the left calls for new gun laws ― some meaningful, some unproductive ― the right yells ‘slippery slope’ and hides behind the Constitution,” she said on her CNN show on Saturday. 

“Nothing happens, nothing changes,” she said. “And with the next mass shooting, we do it all over again.”

Cupp spoke a week after 31 people were killed in two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, which came a week after three people were killed in Gilroy, California

She said that in the past, she’s defended the NRA and its members and argued against stricter gun laws.

But not this time: 

“I am no longer an NRA member. Being right no longer feels righteous because in the wake of more mass shootings, acts of senseless violence that sent innocent people running for their lives, leaving children orphaned, loved ones dead on the ground, we must do something about guns.”

Cupp specifically called for universal background checks, gun violence restraining orders, raising the minimum age for gun purchases to 21, banning 100-round drums, fixing the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and mental health programs in schools. 

And she said some people, including domestic abusers and those who make violent threats, “should never have access to a gun of any kind, period.”

Cupp also predicted one of the arguments that will be used against her… because it’s one she’s used herself while on the other side of the issue.  

“I know, I will be accused of letting my emotions get in the way of facts here. I’ve made that accusation before,” she said. “But this is an emotional issue. How could it not be? In fact, it should be more emotional.”

She called for more emotion ― especially from Republicans and NRA members who support gun control.

Weekend of violence in Chicago leaves 2 dead, dozens injured

Westlake Legal Group Chicago-police Weekend of violence in Chicago leaves 2 dead, dozens injured Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/illinois fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc article 88bdb126-47c3-5274-9613-700bdf131bbe

Dozens of people have been injured and two have been killed in Chicago, Ill., in 33 separate incidents over the weekend where shots were fired, according to police.

At least 40 people have been wounded in the gunfire since early Saturday morning, according to police reports obtained by Fox News.

On Saturday around 3:15 a.m. a 19-year-old man was standing on a sidewalk in Humboldt Park, which is on the west side of Chicago, with a group of men when shots were fired, according to police. They said the teen was shot in the armpit and transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Also in Humboldt Park, about 15 hours later, police said a 47-year-old man was in a vehicle when “an unknown offender” approached the victim and fired shots.

CHICAGO WEEKEND SHOOTINGS LEAVE 8 DEAD, 40 WOUNDED

The man was hit twice and transported to an area hospital in critical condition. He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Police said no one is in custody in either case.

Authorities said a drive-by shooting on Chicago’s West Side early Sunday wounded six people, including one who is reported in critical condition.

Chicago police said the five women and one man were in a large crowd gathered on a street in the Garfield Park neighborhood when someone in a light-colored sedan opened fire.

A 25-year-old man was taken to a local hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the back. Three women were hospitalized in stable condition.

No arrests have been made in the case and the shooting remains under investigation by detectives.

Another drive-by shooting was reported later on Sunday where an 8-year-old girl was hit, according to Chicago police.

They said the girl was at a barbecue in Humboldt Park on the West Side around 3:55 p.m. when someone inside a blue Dodge Charger drove by and opened fire hitting her in the leg.

CHICAGO HAS MOST VIOLENT WEEKEND THIS YEAR: 52 SHOT, 10 DEAD

A witness told Fox 32 that the girl was outside, playing next to her mom when the shooters drove by in the blue car.

“They drove through the block three times, but the first time we thought it was ok because we know them,” she told the television station. “Then they pulled around a second and third time, laughed at us and then I heard six to 10 shots.”

She added that police just missed the shooters, passing their car as they drove off.

Chardonnay Burks, who identified herself as the girl’s 18-year-old sister, told Fox 32 that she was at work when someone called her and said her sister had been shot.

“How are you going to come through shooting when you see kids?” Burks told the station. “They were aiming for somebody else obviously, but my little brother is four and was outside. He could have shot him too.”

The girl is in “good condition,” according to police.

They said no one is in custody in that case.

Chicago police told Fox News the final number of those shot over the weekend will be released on Monday afternoon.

Republican family switches support to Democrats at Iowa State Fair

Westlake Legal Group bG7vfi3Red0lyhSy9UnE_ecgxQLccm5_bTcao4VdaAA Republican family switches support to Democrats at Iowa State Fair r/politics

As nice as this is to hear, it’s dangerous. Once Trump is gone (which will be 202 hopefully) then these people will just flock back to the GOP in the same numbers that they left, and we’ll get the same problem in a few more years time. 2022 perhaps in the mid-terms, Trump is a bad memory and people get out and give the GOP a majority again in both houses.

“Never Trump” is a start, but some actual insight and realising that it’s not just Trump, it’s the entire party, is what is needed. “Never GOP again” is what we should be hearing. Trump is just the pure manifestation of what they have been doing for 40 years.
