The rumors are true: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have teamed up with former “Great British Bake Off” host Mary Berry for a Christmas-inspired television special highlighting various charitable causes.

On Nov. 30, Kensington Palace confirmed reports that the royals and the celebrity baker will star in “A Berry Royal Christmas,” slated to air on Dec. 16 on BBC1.

Prince William, Duchess Kate and Berry partnered for four engagements to “prepare festive food” as a thank-you for charity volunteers working during “the Christmas period,” the palace wrote on Instagram, in addition to visiting other philanthropic groups.

The women also travel to the U.K.’s first “dry bar” established by Action on Addiction, and visit people affected by addiction who have been helped by the Liverpool center in the special.

In an additional feature of “A Berry Royal Christmas,” Prince William and Berry visit The Passage in London, which is the largest resource center for homeless and insecurely housed people.

During the one-off episode, Prince William reportedly spoke of the importance of philanthropy and generosity that his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, both personally exemplified and instilled in him since childhood.

“I find that you hear and you understand and you learn so much more by giving a bit of your time, a bit of your day, to just be around [those in need,]” the prince said, according to People.

Trump campaign bans Bloomberg News from events over ‘troubling and wrong’ decision

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6111037711001_6111042654001-vs Trump campaign bans Bloomberg News from events over ‘troubling and wrong’ decision fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Brian Flood article 09a833a3-aa36-50ed-91e6-70eb934e8453

President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign will no longer issue credentials to Bloomberg News because of its decision to investigate Trump, but not his political opponents, campaign manager Brad Parscale announced Monday.

Bloomberg News announced last week that it wouldn’t investigate its namesake owner, Mike Bloomberg, while he runs for president, or any other Democratic presidential candidate for that matter, but would continue to investigate President Trump.

“The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong,” Parscale wrote in a statement. “Bloomberg News has declared that they won’t investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors, many of whom are current holders of high office, but will continue critical reporting on President Trump.”

EX-BLOOMBERG NEWS EDITOR SLAMS OUTLET’S POLICY NOT TO INVESTIGATE MIKE BLOOMBERG, OTHER DEM CANDIDATES

Parscale said he is “accustomed to unfair reporting practices” but Bloomberg News’ decision takes it too far because “most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly.”

Bloomberg launched his 2020 campaign last week with a one-minute ad, which was posted on social media. Along with the video, Bloomberg posted a written statement on his campaign website in which he laid out why he was the best candidate to defeat President Trump next November.

“Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events,” Parscale wrote. “We will determine whether to engage with individual reporters or answer inquiries from Bloomberg News on a case-by-case basis. This will remain the policy of the Trump campaign until Bloomberg News publicly rescinds its decision.”

KELLYANNE CONWAY SLAMS CNN’S WOLF BLITZER FOR BRINGING UP HER MARRIAGE: ‘I’M EMBARRASSED FOR YOU’

“The accusation of bias couldn’t be further from the truth. We have covered Donald Trump fairly and in an unbiased way since he became a candidate in 2015 and will continue to do so despite the restrictions imposed by the Trump campaign,” Bloomberg Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait told Fox News.

Micklethwait is the same editor who sent a memo to staffers, obtained by The Washington Post, in which he declared the newsroom will “continue our tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation)” and that it would extend the same policy to his opponents in the Democratic primaries, but not to President Trump.

Micklethwait added that “if other credible journalistic institutions” publish investigative work regarding the former New York City mayor, Bloomberg News will either publish or summarize it for readers. The decision to avoid investigating 2020 Democratic presidential candidates sparked backlash and confusion, including former Bloomberg Washington D.C. bureau chief Megan Murphy, who slammed the organization in a series of tweets.

“It is truly staggering that *any* editor would put their name on a memo that bars an army of unbelievably talented reporters and editors from covering massive, crucial aspects of one of the defining elections of our time. Staggering,” Murphy wrote. “This is not journalism.”

Gabrielle Union speaks out amid controversial departure from ‘America’s Got Talent’

Gabrielle Union is speaking out following her controversial departure from “America’s Got Talent.”

The former “AGT” judge took to Twitter on Sunday to reply to a tweet from writer Joelle Monique that listed what a “solid apology” looks like.

“A solid apology comes in three parts. 1. Sincerely admit wrong doing directly to the offended party. 2. Be twice as loud correcting your mistake as you were making the mistake. 3. Lay out steps to correct your behavior in the future. Anything less is covering your own a–,” Monique’s tweet read — to which Union responded, “This! This! AND THIIISSSSSSS!!!!!!”

DWYANE WADE SAYS GABRIELLE UNION WAS FIRED FROM ‘AGT,’ PRAISES WIFE FOR ‘STANDING UP FOR WHAT SHE STANDS FOR’

Union’s response comes in the wake of an NBC-issued statement to People magazine following reports of her departure.

Production company Fremantle, NBC and Simon Cowell’s production company, Syco Entertainment, told People, “’America’s Got Talent’ has a long history of inclusivity and diversity in both our talent and the acts championed by the show.”

“The judging and host line-up has been regularly refreshed over the years and that is one of the reasons for AGT’s enduring popularity. NBC and the producers take any issues on set seriously,” the statement continued.

The news of Union’s departure was initially broken by Variety. The report alleges that Union was subject to various racial criticisms, including her many hairstyle changes, which were perceived as “too black” for “AGT’s” core demographic — a critique Union reportedly received over half a dozen times.

Union was also reportedly not a fan of a racially insensitive joke made by Jay Leno on set.

During the filming of an interstitial segment, Leno joked about a painting that featured Simon Cowell surrounded by dogs. Leno joked that the dogs looked like something one could find “on the menu at a Korean restaurant” — much to the chagrin of “the very few Asian staffers” on the show. The comment was later edited out of the Aug. 6 episode.

Union allegedly urged producers to report the incident to NBC’s human resources department — to no avail.

Second Amendment Case May Fizzle Out at the Supreme Court

Westlake Legal Group 02dc-scotus-facebookJumbo Second Amendment Case May Fizzle Out at the Supreme Court washington dc Supreme Court (US) Second Amendment (US Constitution) New York City gun control firearms Decisions and Verdicts

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court’s first Second Amendment case in nearly a decade may not end up changing anything, judging from questioning at arguments on Monday that focused largely on whether the repeal of a New York City law made the case challenging it moot.

“What’s left of this case?” Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg asked. “The petitioners have gotten all of the relief they sought.”

The other three members of the court’s liberal wing made similar points. “The other side has thrown in the towel,” Justice Sonia Sotomayor told a lawyer for the challengers.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., a member of the court’s conservative majority, asked questions that seemed aimed at making sure that the case was truly moot. But two other conservatives, Justices Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Neil M. Gorsuch, seemed ready to decide the case, saying that the repeal of the law did not settle every question before the court.

Justices Clarence Thomas and Brett M. Kavanaugh asked no questions.

The law had limited city residents who had “premises licenses” from transporting their guns outside their homes. It allowed them to take their guns to one of seven shooting ranges within the city limits, but it barred them from taking their guns anywhere else, including second homes and shooting ranges outside the city, even when they were unloaded and locked in a container separate from any ammunition.

Three city residents and the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association sued to challenge the law but lost in Federal District Court in Manhattan and in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. A unanimous three-judge panel of the Second Circuit ruled that the ordinance passed constitutional muster.

After the Supreme Court granted review, the city repealed its law, apparently fearful of a loss that could sweep away other gun-control regulations, too. For good measure, New York State enacted a law allowing people with premises licenses to take their guns to their homes and businesses and to shooting ranges and competitions, whether in the city or not.

Paul D. Clement, a lawyer for the challengers in the case, New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York, No. 18-280, said the restrictions imposed by the ordinance were at odds with the Second Amendment.

Richard P. Dearing, a lawyer for the city, responded that the ordinance was no longer on the books, meaning that there was nothing left for the court to decide.

The larger question in the case, one the court may not address, is whether lower courts have been faithfully applying its key precedent, District of Columbia v. Heller, which was decided by a 5-to-4 vote in 2008. The decision revolutionized Second Amendment jurisprudence by identifying an individual right to own guns, but it ruled only that the right applied inside the home, for self-defense.

Proponents of gun rights have been frustrated by lower-court rulings that have generally upheld various kinds of gun-control laws, often relying on a passage in the Heller decision that said some restrictions were presumptively constitutional.

“Nothing in our opinion,” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote for the majority in a passage that was apparently the price of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s fifth vote, “should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

Justice Scalia died in 2016, and Justice Kennedy retired last year.

Royal family crisis deepens with Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts’ interview set to air

With aftershocks from Prince Andrew’s nuclear TV interview still reverberating, a new explosive tell-all is expected to further rock Buckingham Palace.

Virginia Roberts, who claims she was trafficked by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with the fallen British royal on three occasions nearly 20 years ago, is expected to appear in a BBC interview scheduled to air Monday. The broadcaster tweeted out a 20-second preview of the interview on Thursday.

In the clip, Roberts, now known as Virginia Giuffre, responded to the 59-year-old’s denial of her allegations by saying: “He knows what happened, I know what happened, and there’s only one of us telling the truth.”

Roberts claimed Epstein paid her to have sex with the prince on three occasions starting in 2001, including one with London. Roberts said she was 17 when they first had sex.

PRINCE ANDREW’S EPSTEIN SCANDAL WILL RESULT IN ‘HEATED SHOWDOWN’ WITH ‘FURIOUS’ PRINCE CHARLES: REPORT

Roberts did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment in regards to her upcoming interview.

In the Nov. 14 TV interview with Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II struggled to defend himself about his relationship with the late disgraced financier, who was accused of sex trafficking. Andrew claimed he had “no recollection of ever meeting” Roberts, “none whatsoever.” The Duke of York also implied that a now-famous photograph showing him with his hand around Roberts’ waist was doctored.

“I have absolutely no memory of that photograph,” the prince insisted. “I’m afraid to say that I don’t believe that photograph was taken in the way that has been suggested.”

The interview has been widely considered a public relations disaster for Andrew, who announced shortly after it aired that he would be stepping down from all of his royal duties.

PRINCE ANDREW FORCED TO MOVE OFFICE OUT OF BUCKINGHAM PALACE: REPORT

Epstein died Aug. 10 after being found unconscious in a Manhattan jail cell, where he was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. His death has been ruled a suicide.

U.S. officials are still looking into the case, and a number of civil lawsuits against Epstein’s estate are in progress.

Royal expert and author Leslie Carroll, author of “Royal Pains: A Rogues’ Gallery of Brats, Brutes, and Bad Seeds,” previously told Fox News it’s undoubtedly a difficult time for Queen Elizabeth, who is faced with one of the worst scandals for the royal family in its modern history.

“I feel a bit sad that at this stage in her life… the queen can never relax her hands on the reins of the monarchy and completely trust the younger generation to carry on,” Carroll told Fox News. “[She] is said to be ‘disappointed’ by Andrew… He’s always been a wild one, but he went off the rails by associating with Epstein, to begin with.

PRINCE ANDREW TO ‘STEP BACK’ FROM PUBLIC DUTIES OVER JEFFREY EPSTEIN RELATIONSHIP

“The queen will continue to ‘neither complain nor explain’ because she was raised to do so; and with ‘duty first’ as a core belief,” Carroll continued. “[She]… needs to keep the country together as its moral spine, demonstrating the ‘there will always be an England’ sentiment that has kept Britain’s monarchy the longest-running show in history — still going after over a millennium.”

Royal historian and blogger Marlene Koenig told Fox News that Andrew’s brother Prince Charles, who is next in line for the throne, was involved in the decision to have Andrew step back from public duties “for the foreseeable future.”

“I think there is only so much that the queen can do,” Carroll explained. “Charles is the future king and he has been involved in all the conversations about Andrew. There is no doubt that his voice was heard in the decision to have Andrew step down as a working royal. I won’t be surprised if more decisions follow after he returns from New Zealand… We do not know how this story will end… more legal issues for Andrew? Or will he be further pushed gently into the good night?”

CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY: WHY PRINCE ANDREW SHOULD ‘SHUT UP’ ABOUT JEFFREY EPSTEIN

Melissa Cronin, an investigative journalist who is also the executive producer of a podcast titled “Epstein: Devil in the Darkness,” also told Fox News Andrew’s woes are far from over.

The podcast features exclusive interviews with members of Epstein’s inner circle, including his longtime chauffeur, his jail mate – who alleged to have witnessed his first suicide attempt three weeks before his death – as well as a woman who claimed she helped recruit “Epstein’s stable of young massage therapists at his New Mexico compound.”

Cronin has been reporting on the billionaire New York financier since 2014 and was one of the first to uncover new revelations about how he used his connections to “shield his predatory behavior with young girls.”

PRINCE ANDREW’S EX LEFT JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S NEW YORK APARTMENT ‘BECAUSE SHE WAS BEING WATCHED’

She believes Andrew isn’t being truthful with the press.

“He may not have known at the beginning of their friendship [about Epstein’s perversions],” Cronin said. “[But] he absolutely continued to have a relationship with Epstein after it was public knowledge that he had these underage women… They were photographed together walking in Central Park after Epstein’s plea deal in Palm Beach, in which he pleaded guilty to procuring with an underage prostitute. He was sentenced to prison for that… After all became public, Prince Andrew was still seen with him in New York walking through Central Park, deep in conversation, like two close friends.”

Cronin alleged that based on her investigation, Giuffre may not have been the only “young woman” from Epstein’s circle that Andrew was involved with.

“We know of at least one other incident where he spent with a young woman who was not Virginia Roberts,” claimed Cronin. “We spoke exclusively with a staffer at the New Mexico property who told us that she personally served Andrew during a three-day visit, in which he was given a young woman as his companion. And, while the staffer that we talked to had seen Virginia Roberts at the ranch before, she said that this woman that spent time with Andrew was not Roberts.”

PRINCE ANDREW’S JEFFREY EPSTEIN INTERVIEW SLAMMED AS TOTAL DISASTER BY VIEWERS, MEDIA

“But, there’s still more to be revealed,” Cronin continued. “[Reports suggest] that there’s a lot more information that the world still doesn’t know about Andrew and Epstein that could be released… There are a lot of possibilities and a lot of questions about what’s to come. It’s hard to say what [the palace] would do in the face of additional evidence…. As I said, there are so many files that have yet to be leaked, to be released. There’s still a lot of secrets that are uncovered.”

Alabama kicker Joseph Bulovas pens heartfelt letter after missing game-tying field goal vs. Auburn

Alabama lost a heart-breaker to rival Auburn in their Iron Bowl matchup on Saturday and Crimson Tide kicker Joseph Bulovas received some flak for missing a field goal that would have tied the game.

Bulovas’ field goal attempt hit the left upright in the middle of a 48-45 game. Alabama would eventually lose the game and potentially any chances of making the College Football Playoff. A disappointed Bulovas penned a letter to Crimson Tide fans apologizing for the missed kick.

“After reflecting on the game, I just wanted to express my apologies to the entire Crimson Tide nation,” he wrote. “Nobody was more disappointed than myself. Regardless of the circumstances, that is a kick I should make in my sleep and nobody is as big of a critic as I am of myself. To the fans, my coaches, and my teammates; I promise you will never see a guy work as hard as I will for the entirety of my career because I owe that to all of you.

“I refuse to let this be anything more than a bump in the road and I’m confident I will come back better because of it. I wear my emotions on my sleeve and this one was hard to take to say the least, but I have confidence in this team and in myself and that’s what’s motivating going forward. I have and will always give it everything I’ve got for this team which is something that will never change. God Bless and Roll Tide.”

Bulovas had hit a 43-yarder earlier in the game. He was 8-for-11 during the season on field-goal attempts.

Alabama’s loss can’t be pinned on just one play. The defense gave up 48 points while the offense turned the ball over twice on two Mac Jones interceptions — both of which resulted in touchdowns.

House Intel Will Release Impeachment Report Ahead Of Landmark Hearing

Westlake Legal Group 5de53fbb1f0000201edf027f House Intel Will Release Impeachment Report Ahead Of Landmark Hearing

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House impeachment report on President Donald Trump will be unveiled Monday behind closed doors for key lawmakers as Democrats push ahead with the inquiry despite the White House’s declaration it will not participate in the first Judiciary Committee hearing.

The Democratic majority on the House Intelligence Committee says the report, compiled after weeks of testimony, will speak for itself in laying out what Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., called the evidence of “wrongdoing and misconduct” by the Republican president over his actions toward Ukraine. It was being made available for committee members to review ahead of a vote Tuesday to send it to the Judiciary Committee for Wednesday’s landmark hearing.

Late Sunday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone denounced the “baseless and highly partisan inquiry.” In a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., he also declined the invitation for the president’s counsel to appear before his panel Wednesday.

Cipollone, in continuing the West Wing’s attack on the House process, said the proceeding “violates all past historical precedent, basic due process rights, and fundamental fairness.” Trump himself was scheduled to attend a summit with NATO allies outside London on Wednesday.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday it’s “very unfortunate” the Judiciary Committee is holding its hearing at the same time that Trump is representing the U.S. at the NATO summit.

“I regret that they’ve chosen to hold these hearings at the same time that the president and our entire national security team will be traveling to Europe, to London, to work on these important matters,” Pompeo said.

As the impeachment inquiry intensifies, Wednesday’s hearing will be a milestone. It is expected to convene legal experts whose testimony, alongside the report from the Intelligence Committee, could lay the groundwork for possible articles of impeachment, which the panel is expected to soon draw up.

Democrats are focused on whether Trump abused his office by withholding military aid approved by Congress and a White House meeting as he pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to launch investigations into Trump’s political rivals. The report also is expected to include evidence of possible obstruction of Congress by Trump’s instructions that officials in his administration defy subpoenas for documents or testimony.

Trump maintains he did nothing wrong, and as the House presses forward on an ambitious schedule toward an impeachment vote, the president and his Republican allies are aligned against the process.

Cipollone’s letter applied only to the Wednesday hearing, and he demanded more information from Democrats on how they intended to conduct further hearings before Trump would decide whether to participate in them. House rules provide the president and his attorneys the right to cross-examine witnesses and review evidence before the committee, but little ability to bring forward witnesses of their own.

Republicans, meanwhile, wanted Schiff, the chairman who led the inquiry report, to testify before the Judiciary Committee, though they have no power to compel him to do so, as they joined the White House effort to try to cast the Democratic-led inquiry as skewed against the Republican president.

“It’s easy to hide behind a report,” said Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee. “But it’s going to be another thing to actually get up and have to answer questions.”

Schiff has said “there’s nothing for me to testify about,” that he isn’t a “fact” witness and that Republicans are only trying to “mollify the president, and that’s not a good reason to try to call a member of Congress as a witness.”

Democrats were aiming for a final House vote by Christmas, which would set the stage for a likely Senate trial in January.

“I do believe that all evidence certainly will be included in that report so the Judiciary Committee can make the necessary decisions that they need to,” said Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., a member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees.

Trump has previously suggested that he might be willing to offer written testimony under certain conditions, though aides suggested they did not anticipate Democrats would ever agree to them.

Democrats had pressed Trump to decide by Friday whether he would take advantage of due process protections afforded to him under House rules adopted in October for follow-up hearings, including the right to request witness testimony and to cross-examine the witnesses called by the House.

“If you are serious about conducting a fair process going forward, and in order to protect the rights and privileges of the President, we may consider participating in future Judiciary Committee proceedings if you afford the Administration the ability to do so meaningfully,” Cipollone said in the Sunday letter.

Collins called the hearing Wednesday “a complete American waste of time of here.” He wanted the witness list expanded to include those suggested by Republicans. “This is why this is a problematic exercise and simply a made-for-TV event coming on Wednesday.”

Still, Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., a Judiciary Committee member, said he believes Trump would benefit if he presents his own defense. McClintock said he doesn’t believe Trump did anything wrong in the July 25 call with Zelenskiy that is at the heart of the investigation.

“He didn’t use the delicate language of diplomacy in that conversation, that’s true. He also doesn’t use the smarmy talk of politicians,” McClintock said.

To McClintock, Trump was using “the blunt talk of a Manhattan businessman” and “was entirely within his constitutional authority” in his dealings with Ukraine’s leader.

Collins appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and Demings and McClintock were on ABC’s “This Week.”
