Reverend who led Halloween march to the polls in North Carolina charged with felony assault

Three weeks after two law enforcement agencies used pepper spray to break up a peaceful march to the polls in Graham, N.C., the county sheriff’s office said it would charge the march’s organizer, the Rev. Greg Drumwright, with felony assault on an officer and obstructing justice.

The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office said it has reviewed video of the Oct. 31 rally and alleged that Drumwright, reverend of the Citadel Church in nearby Greensboro, was involved in an “altercation” that left a deputy injured.

Drumwright, founder of the anti-racist coalition Justice 4 the Next Generation, brought two recent lawsuits against Alamance County Sheriff Terry S. Johnson and other local officials. His attorneys say the felony charges were designed to silence him.

“These charges are retaliatory in our view,” said Elizabeth Haddix, an attorney with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, which represents Drumwright in the two lawsuits. “We’re

Jamie Lee Curtis Reveals Terminally Ill Fan Received Early Screening of ‘Halloween Kills’

Jamie Lee Curtis helped give a wonderful gift to a fan.

While appearing on The Talk, the 61-year-old actress revealed that a terminally-ill fan in Charleston, South Carolina was able to get an early screening of the new Halloween Kills movie.

“They said that a young man that works [at the Terrace Theatre], Anthony Woodle, was diagnosed with cancer and didn’t have long to live,” Jamie explained.

“So David [Gordon Green, Halloween producer] showed him a movie that no one in the world has seen,” Jamie shared. “He showed Anthony and his fiancée, Emily, the chance to see the Halloween movie which I thought was a beautiful gesture and I simply followed it up by calling Anthony and started having a conversation to say, I could tell him any secrets.”

Halloween Kills was originally supposed to hit theaters this year, but because of the ongoing pandemic, the release has

Watch: Hubie Halloween trailer

Adam Sandler’s all encompassing popularity on Netflix shows no signs whatsoever of abating, with news that his latest movie is the most-streamed of 2020 in the US.

Seasonal horror-comedy Hubie Halloween, despite a swathe of shrug-worthy reviews, even achieved the accolade in under a month, the window of streaming data running from April 2020 to October 2020.

The movie only debuted on 7 October.

Hubie Halloween Is Netflix’s Most Popular Movie of 2020

Adam Sandler has done it again. Despite receiving mixed reviews for his latest Netflix feature Hubie Halloween, the movie has topped the streaming charts. According to a report by Variety, Hubie Halloween is Netflix’s highest-ranking movie of 2020 in the United States, beating out every other Hollywood movie and tv show. The only Netflix offering that managed to outperform Sandler’s movie was the Polish drama, 365 Days.

In any other year, topping the Netflix charts would have been a modest accomplishment for a Hollywood A-lister. But the Bizzaro version of reality that is 2020 saw streaming overtake cinema halls as the premier destination for movies. As such, the fact that Hubie Halloween has topped the Netflix charts makes it possibly the most-watched movie of the year, without having released in theaters for a single day.

Why Beijing Hopes for a Biden Win

Elections have consequences, both domestic and foreign. There is a consensus among China observers that Beijing hopes for a Joe Biden win this November, because the last time Biden was in charge, as vice president of the United States, China completed its control of the South China Sea.The South China Sea is one of the most important bodies of water on the planet. Besides China, multiple nations including Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines have their own, sometimes overlapping, claims to portions of the South China Sea. In addition to historic claims, according to the United Nations Convention for the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), a nation has sovereignty over waters extending twelve nautical miles from its land and exclusive control over economic activities 200 nautical miles out into the ocean.However, using its own map with a “nine-dash line,” China claims that

Boo you.

We all scolded and tut-tutted when Kim Kardashian posted about her lavish private island birthday getaway, but at least she had the decency to pretend like she was deeply “humbled” by it or something. At least she mandated a pre-private island quarantine. On Saturday, October 31, Fyre Festival scamstress Kendall Jenner threw herself a 25th birthday party with reportedly 100 people in attendance on the Harriet’s rooftop in West Hollywood. Photos show flyers at the event that read, “NO SOCIAL MEDIA, take all the photos you want, but please do not post on social media of any kind.” Probably because Jenner is on some level aware that hosting a crowded event full of people who don’t live together and travel often and could spread it to different places is … not a cute look. TMZ reports that the attendees included Justin and Hailey Bieber,

“NAS MARAJ !!!” he captioned the photos, referencing the stan account he ran for Minaj before his rise to stardom.

While Lil Nas X received celebratory comments from the likes of Andy Cohen, Iggy Azalea, Doja Cat and Lauren Jauregui, he also had to clap back at haters who criticized his costume.

“Your obsession you have with the lgbtq community is getting weird,” wrote one fan with screenshots of East’s Instagram Stories. “Do you have
