Laura Cox, the chair of the Michigan Republican Party, and Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, sent a letter Saturday to the Michigan’s State Board of Canvassers to “adjourn for 14 days” to allow an audit of Wayne County’s election results. Despite multiple lawsuits and claims from President Donald Trump’s campaign alleging widespread fraud in Michigan and Wayne County, no evidence has emerged.

“Enough, already. The fanciful conspiracy theories have been debunked,” the editorial board of the Detroit Free Press

U.S. judge calls Trump claim challenging Biden win in Pennsylvania ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’

(Reuters) – A federal judge on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit critical to President Donald Trump’s long-shot bid to overturn his Nov. 3 election loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden, calling his legal claim a “Frankenstein’s Monster.”

The Trump campaign had sought to prevent state officials from certifying the results of the election in the state.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations.”

Brann said that he “has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens.”

The lawsuit before Brann was filed on Nov. 9 and had alleged inconsistent treatment by county election officials of mail-in ballots. Some counties notified voters that they could fix minor defects such as missing “secrecy envelopes” while others did not.

“This claim, like Frankenstein’s Monster, has been haphazardly stitched together,” wrote

Steve Bruce calls Miguel Almiron’s agent an ‘amateur’ after radio claims

Miguel Almiron celebrates
Miguel Almiron has scored one goal in 10 appearances so far this season

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce has branded Miguel Almiron’s agent “an amateur looking to make a fast buck” after claims made on Paraguayan radio.

Almiron’s agent, Daniel Campos, said the Paraguay forward would have already left Tyneside if it had not been for the coronavirus pandemic, with Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid both interested in signing him.

“I couldn’t miss the quotes because they were so outrageous it was bordering on the ridiculous,” said Bruce.

“If it was Miguel, who I’ve had the pleasure to work with for the last 15 months, knocking on my door and having a problem, I’d listen.

“An agent who, two years in, is probably trying to profit again and take him somewhere else, is just hugely disrespectful to all of us basically, and to the club in particular who have served

Colin Kaepernick calls for release of Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted of killing a Philadelphia cop

Kaepernick publicly expressed support of the release of Mumia Abu-Jamal at a virtual conference this week. Abu-Jamal was convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer in 1981. He has served 38 years of a life sentence at a southwest Philadelphia prison thus far.
“When I was invited to speak on behalf of Mumia, one of the first things that came to mind was has been how long he’s been in prison,” Kaepernick said at the conference. “How many years of his life has been stolen away from him, his community and his loved ones? Mumia has been in prison longer than I’ve been alive.”

Kaepernick quotes Abu-Jamal’s own writing, describing his sentence as a “second by second assault on his soul.” He referenced the Black Lives Matter movement during his speech.

“Today we’re living through a moment where it’s acceptable to paint ‘end racism now’ in front of the Philadelphia … Read More

Hugh Grant Says His Wife Has ‘Never Liked’ His Rom Coms, Calls This Unexpected Film His ‘Masterpiece’

Hugh Grant may be one of the greatest British heart throbs of all time, but the 60-year-old actor’s wife, Anna Elisabet Eberstein, was never attracted to his hit rom coms like Notting Hill, Love Actually, and more. 

During a Wednesday appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Grant opened up about how his wife of two years is much more interested in his dramatic work, like his new mini-series, The Undoing

“My wife is the man in our house, really. She likes violent films, gangster films while I’m sitting there watching Roman Holiday or The Sound of Music or something,” he revealed. “So she’s never liked those films I did in the past, which are all romance and stuff. But now she’s starting to get a taste for [my work].” 

He noted that while Anna “did like” The Undoing, it had little to do with her

Mastercard CEO Calls for New U.S. Stimulus Quickly: NEF Update

The New Economy Forum is organized by Bloomberg Media Group, a division of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.

Mastercard’s Banga Calls for New Fiscal Stimulus Quickly (9:41 a.m. HKT)

“We need the fiscal stimulus and we need it relatively quickly,” Banga said at the forum. “Because I can see where the second wave is coming. You can see consumer spending beginning to get impacted again.”

He said that consumer spending now is in “relatively good shape” and that companies have reached a form of “normalization” amid the virus. “It’s a new normal,” he said. “We’re not really doing the things we used to.”

Nevertheless, he said there will likely be an economic recovery in the second half of next year, returning to a “pre-Covid kind of stage” as vaccines are widely distributed. — Dan Reichl, Jonas Bergman

Johnny Weir Calls ‘DWTS’ a ‘Popularity Contest’ After Elimination

Staying true to himself. Johnny Weir and Britt Stewart were visibly upset at the end of the Monday, November 16, episode of Dancing With the Stars. After their semifinal performances, they were the first pair eliminated when it was revealed they had the lowest number of votes by America. (Skai Jackson and Alan Bersten were also sent home after the judges chose to save Justina Machado and Sasha Farber over them.)

“It hurts a lot because it definitely feels like a popularity contest more so than a dance contest but that’s part of it,” the Olympian, 36, told Us Weekly and other reporters on Monday night. “I knew what I was signing up for. I can say wholeheartedly that I would always prefer to be myself than be popular.”

He also shared that he hopes his fans understand the importance of that message — especially in 2020.
