At least two Palestinians are reported to have died during a day of rage in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed the deaths. It said Israeli soldiers fatally shot one man near the Gaza border amid clashes over Washington’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Dozens of Palestinians are said to have been injured in the violence.
As Friday prayers ended, scuffles broke out. Reinforcements were deployed in and around Jerusalem's Old City.
Water cannon were used in some areas, in response to stones thrown by protesters, while thick, black smoke could be seen as tyres were burned and tear gas fired.
US President Donald Trump's decision was a contentious one. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of the state they seek, but Israel regards Jerusalem as its eternal, indivisible capital.
Pres. Obama was labeled by most economists who were biased hacks as one of the worst presidents of modern times in terms of economics.
However, that didn't stop president Obama for trying to take credit for the entire first year of Donald Trump's presidency! President Obama even thanked himself for the millions of jobs brought into the United States from deals created by Donald Trump. The irony is that most of these jobs are manufacturing jobs that Obama himself mocked president Trump during the campaign over, even specifically saying the 40,000 number president Trump quoted during the campaign was an absolute ridiculous number. Now we know the number has reached 200,000 a month! Far exceeding even Donald Trump's estimates before becoming president.
If this morning’s employment report has you down, just listen to President Obama. The U.S. economy is gorgeous, he insists.
“In the United States, our economy is growing again,” Obama crowed during his trip to Germany last month. And the American people would appreciate all of this “if we had been able to more effectively communicate all the steps we had taken” to improve it, he recently told one news outlet.
“It is very hard to get good stories placed” about the economy, Obama whined to college journalists last week. “People will assign you stories about what’s not working. It’s very hard for you to write a story about, ‘Wow, this thing really works good.’”
That grammatical gaffe aside, a failure to communicate is not among Obama’s myriad weaknesses.
As his self-confident and hilarious appearance at last Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner confirmed, Obama is a gifted speaker. The national media have eaten out of his hand since he descended from the heavens, fully formed, at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. As president, he can summon two dozen TV cameras and just as many microphones just by crawling out of bed every morning. So, the notion that Obama cannot express his economic message “good” deeply insults the intelligence of the American people.
While Obama can talk the bark off a banyan tree, he cannot make Americans hallucinate prosperity. Here is the sad picture they actually see.
The unemployment rate has improved significantly, from 7.8 percent at Obama’s January 20, 2009, inauguration to 5.0 percent in April.
However, as more and more Americans stop looking for work, the Labor Force Participation Rate on Obama’s watch has fallen from 65.7 percent to 62.8 percent, a level last measured before Obama in March 1978. Since Obama took office, this metric has slid 4.1 percent.
Last month saw the creation of 160,000 jobs, a widely panned number, and much below the 200,000-plus jobs generated in five of the last six months. Nothing about the latest employment report spells “boom.”
Meanwhile, annualized GDP growth nearly stalled in the first quarter at a meager 0.5 percent. This is down from already tepid 1.4 percent growth in the fourth quarter of 2015.
Obama is the only U.S. chief executive in history not to preside over even a single year with 3 percent GDP growth, as the Institute for Policy Innovation’s Tom Giovanetti observes:
‘From 1790 to 2000, U.S. real GDP growth averaged 3.79 percent,’ entrepreneur Louis Woodhill explained at RealClearMarkets. He expects final figures to show that ‘2015 will have been the tenth year in a row that real GDP growth came in at under 3.0 percent.’
During the Obama years, the number of Americans below the poverty line is up 3.5 percent.
Real median household income: down 2.3 percent.
Americans on Food Stamps — 33 million then, 46 million now: up 39.5 percent.
Americans who own homes: down 5.6 percent.
National debt — $10.63 trillion then vs. $19.19 trillion last Wednesday: up 80.5 percent.
Former President Barack Obama thanked himself in a speech Tuesday in which he took credit for American economic growth occurring under Republican President Donald Trump.
Obama told an adoring crowd at a Chicago climate summit that despite “resistance at every step of the way,” his administration’s efforts to fight climate change resulted in a better economy.
“As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far — a streak that still continues, by the way.”
He then added a zinger: “Thanks Obama.”
A new survey reveals that young people believe being called a “snowflake” could be damaging to their mental health.
A new survey by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 percent of 16 to 24-year-olds believe the term “snowflake” is unfairly applied to millennials. 74 percent of respondents took it a step farther, arguing that they believe the use of the label could have a negative effect on young people’s mental health.
The study was born out of interest in the term “snowflake generation” which was originally used to describe young people who thought they were unique or special. Some suggest it was popularized by a line in the 1996 novel Fight Club and its 1999 film adaptation: “you are not special, you are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.” The word’s meaning eventually evolved to mean “overly-sensitive.” It is often used to describe college students who claim that they are offended by controversial or even mundane ideas.
Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, has embraced the rise in popularity of the term. “There is a kind of new Victorianism,” he said. “Every generation gets offended by different things but my friends who teach in high school tell me that their students are very easily offended.”
Rep. Jim Jordan: There are a couple of fundamental questions here. Did the FBI pay Christopher Steele? I asked that of the Attorney General two weeks ago he wouldn’t answer the question. Did they actually vet this dossier?… Because it’s been disproven, a bunch of lies, a bunch of National Enquirer garbage and fake news in this thing. Did they actually check it out before they brought it to the FISA Court which I’m convinced they did. And all of this can be cleared up if they release the application that they took to the court… I think they won’t give it to us because they did pay Christopher Steele. I think they did use the dossier as the basis for the warrants to spy on Americans associated with President Trump’s campaign… (Strzok) is the guy who took the dossier to the Fisa Court.
TUCKER CARLSON: “The Mueller independent investigation has deep ties to the Democratic Party establishment. His name is Aaron Sibley. He is described as Mueller’s right-hand man. Back in 2015, he was a lawyer and represented Hillary Clinton’s I.T. Staffer Justin cooper. Cooper is the one who personally put in the secretary of state’s private illegal surfer stomach server in her home. They were stonewalled again and again. Documents that we obtained today show the frustration of homeland security and government affairs committee and trying to get to Mr. Cooper. Cooper chose to cancel the interview. “We are troubled by your attorney.” Take that and for a minute. A lawyer who played a defense role and a federal investigation into Hillary Clinton is now playing an offense of role and a federal investigation against President Trump. This is not the first time the Mueller probe has been dodged by questions of partisanship.”
Planned Parenthood could be breaking the federal law known as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that requires abortion clinics, hospitals and other places that do abortions to provide appropriate medical care for a baby born alive after a failed abortion or purposefully birthed to “let die.” That would be one of the potential ways Planned Parenthood could produce a “fully intact” baby to sell to StemExpress for research. Most “crunchy” abortion methods would do damage to the baby’s body.
The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact aborted babies.
The Justice Department has launched a federal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices and the sale of fetal tissue.
In a letter first obtained by Fox News, Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd formally requested unredacted documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the same panel that led the congressional probe into the women’s health organization.
“The Department of Justice appreciates the offer of assistance in obtaining these materials, and would like to request the Committee provide unredacted copies of records contained in the report, in order to further the Department’s ability to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of that report based on the full range of information available,” Boyd wrote.
Fox News has learned that last month, the FBI first requested the unredacted documents from the committee.
Fox News is told that Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said they needed to receive a letter and be assured that the documents would be used for investigative purposes.
The letter, sent to Grassley and Feinstein on Thursday, is a rare confirmation by the Justice Department of a federal investigation.
The judge presiding over the case of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has recused himself. The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has confirmed that Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself from the case, but has not revealed why. With Contreras out, the case has been reassigned to Judge Emmet Sullivan — an appointee of former President Bill Clinton.
Beverly Young Nelson has finally admitted that she forged a portion of the infamous high school yearbook that she and attorney Gloria Allred used as proof of her accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
And in yet another blow to the credibility of ABC News, the disgraced, left-wing network downplayed the bombshell by presenting this admission of forgery as adding “notes” to the inscription. Worse still, the reporter actually coaches Nelson, puts words in her mouth, downplay the enormous significance of her deceit.
“Nelson admits she did make notes to the inscription,” ABC News tells us. “But the message was all Roy Moore.”
“Beverly, he signed your yearbook,” ABC News reporter Tom Llamas says.
“He did sign it,” she replies.
“And you made some notes underneath.”
“Yes,” Nelson says.
Six people have been injured after an out of control car crashed into pedestrians on a pavement in New York.
The vehicle, a black Lincoln, is reported to have jumped a kerb in Manhattan near the World Trade Centre after striking at least two cars.
Pictures and footage from the scene show the car mostly on a pavement with a damage front.
Other images show a bike crushed under a Ford Explorer that is understood to have been hit by the Lincoln before it drove on to strike a Mercedes.
Officials said they received a call to the scene on Liberty Street and Broadway shortly before 1.30pm and that it does not appear to be terror related.
None of the victims are believed to have been seriously hurt and have been taken to a number of local hospitals. including Bellevue and Presbyterian Downtown.
A New York Police Department spokesman confirmed the Lincoln hit one vehicle at Liberty and Broadway before heading east for one block where it struck another vehicle then mounted the pavement.
The driver of the Lincoln, said to be aged in his 60s, has been detained and is being questioned.
According to NBC New York, both the Lincoln and Explorer had Taxi and License Commission number plates.
The site of the incident is less than a mile from the spot where eight people were killing and many injured in a truck attack last month.
Suspect Sayfullo Saipov pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and terror in relation to the attack.
He is next scheduled for a hearing on January 23.

Following weeks of accusations made against him, Sen. Al Franken has announced he is stepping down at the end of the year.
“I am proud that during my time the Senate I have used my power to be a champion of women and that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside every day. I know there’s been a very different picture of me painted over the last few weeks, but I know who I really am,” Franken said on the U.S. Senate floor Thursday morning.
“Serving in the United States Senate has been a great honor of my life. I know in my heart that nothing I have done as a Senator, nothing, has brought this honor on this institution and I am confident that the ethics committee would agree. Nevertheless today I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate,” Franken added. “Even today, on the worst political day of my life, I feel like it’s all been worth it.”
“When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well how exectly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. “I’m going to negotiate a better deal.” Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.
If sanctuary policies for illegal immigrants got Kate Steinle killed, did Donald Trump’s harsh anti-immigration rhetoric help pave the way for her assailant’s unexpected acquittal last week on murder, manslaughter and assault charges?
Trying to make sense of Steinle’s horrific death was difficult enough. Now we must process the criminal justice system’s horrifically lenient treatment of her killer. Two years ago, a man with a lengthy criminal record—a man who should not have been in the country in the first place—fired a stolen semiautomatic pistol on a crowded San Francisco pier. The bullet ricocheted off the pavement and into the back of a 32-year-old woman out for a stroll with her father. The shooter then threw the gun into the San Francisco Bay and fled, while his victim died in her father’s arms.
Everyone acknowledges that Jose Ines Garcia Zarate is the man responsible for Steinle’s death, yet the system in place to bring the killer to justice seems far more interested in his well-being than it ever was in hers. At the time of the shooting, Mr. Garcia Zarate had racked up seven felony convictions and been deported from the U.S. five times. His lawyers argued that the stolen gun, which the defendant said he found under a bench, went off by accident. Prosecutors brought several charges. The jury could have found Mr. Garcia Zarate guilty of murder, manslaughter or even assault with a deadly weapon, but it declined to convict on any of those counts. Instead, he was found guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He could face up to three years in state prison—a term he may have already satisfied.
During his race for president against Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump spoke frequently and forcefully about the Steinle case and how local law-enforcement officials deal with the undocumented immigrants they encounter. “My opponent wants sanctuary cities,” he said in his nomination acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last year. “But where was the sanctuary for Kate Steinle?”
That question still looms after last week’s verdict given that sanctuary cities like San Francisco, which restrict cooperation between local police and federal immigration authorities, see no need to change their ways. Before the shooting, Mr. Garcia Zarate was in custody and on track to be deported (yet again) but was first transferred to the San Francisco Jail on an outstanding drug-related warrant. After city prosecutors declined to prosecute that case, he was released despite a request from federal agents to hold him for deportation. Which is to say that this wasn’t a mix-up. The San Francisco authorities did not make a mistake. Mr. Garcia Zarate didn’t fall through the cracks. He was released because that was the policy for dealing with illegal aliens, and it’s still the policy. Kate Steinle’s killer would be released again today.
Around 500 cities and counties in the U.S. can be described as illegal immigrant sanctuaries, though the level of cooperation with federal authorities varies. The Department of Homeland Security says that it doesn’t have the manpower to patrol the interior without help from the nation’s 765,000 police officers. Some police departments counter that sanctuary ordinances strengthen relationships between law enforcement and immigrants. If people in a community fear that the police are there to deport them, they are less likely to report crimes and public safety suffers. But isn’t fear of deportation also a deterrent to entering the country illegally? Doesn’t lax enforcement of our immigration laws beget more violations of our immigration laws?
Steinle’s death illustrates the significant trade-offs involved in constructing sanctuary jurisdictions. Americans understandably want immigration policies in place that prioritize the needs and concerns of U.S. citizens, not foreign nationals. In effect, San Francisco’s sanctuary policy prioritized the Garcia Zarates, which is another outrage.
The reputation of the FBI, especially special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team, has taken a huge hit since it was found out Mueller was forced to fire an anti-Trump agent.
Congressman Trey Gowdy, who served as a federal prosecutor for six years, knows a thing or two about enforcing justice and weighed in over Twitter about the latest FBI debacle.
Gowdy tweeted, “The Bureau has had a really bad last 18 months. This makes it worse.”
CNN’s MJ Lee took a shot at Congressional Democrats over their past silence on Sen. Al Franken’s (D-MN) sexual misconduct allegations, calling their refusal to speak out “remarkable.”
A flood of Democratic senators swept down on Franken on Wednesday, calling for their colleague’s resignation, but that did not impress the CNN reporter.
“Obviously this is something that we have been keeping track of over the past couple of weeks as these allegations of sexual harassment began to mount,” she said of Democratic criticism of Franken. “Up to this point, the silence was pretty remarkable.”
Lee also reported that Franken is a “popular colleague” among Democrats, and the liberal senators did not want to call for his resignation.
As President Donald Trump announced that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, American and Israeli flags were projected onto Jerusalem's Old City walls. The flags were screened on the 16th century walls from Jaffa Gate in the direction of Mount Zion in a show of appreciation. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said that Trump’s announcement “is a historic declaration that sends a clear message to the entire world that the US stands with the Jewish people, the State of Israel and Jerusalem.” -- “As a gesture and expression of the courageous friendship between the American people and the people of Israel, we decided to project the American and Israeli flags onto the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City, the ultimate symbol of the strength of the Jewish people’s connection to Jerusalem for over 3,000 years,” Barkat said in the statement. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a statement of gratitude to President Trump for his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Protests erupted throughout the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and cities across the Middle East on Thursday in what was dubbed a “day of rage” after President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Trump announced on Wednesday that he would "officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital," sparking worldwide outrage, including from Washington's closest allies in the region. Some Palestinian leaders called for a new intifada, or uprising, in response to the controversial move.
In the wake of his speech, Palestinian factions called for a general strike on Thursday, while the Palestinian Education Ministry canceled classes so students and teachers could participate in the demonstrations.
Ben Shapiro said President Donald Trump’s plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital is an act of "political bravery" and "moral courage." Trump on Wednesday ordered the State Department to begin moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians. The move is expected to inflame tensions across the Middle East. On "Fox & Friends," Shapiro said this a ground shift and a necessary move to achieving lasting peace in the region. "What President Trump is doing is not just a recognition of reality, it's also an act of political usefulness," Shapiro said, explaining that all of the Middle East peace negotiations over the past 20 years have been preconditioned on the idea that Israel would give up its "eternal capital." He said that is "insane," as Jerusalem has extraordinary religious and historical importance to the Jewish people.
"For President Trump to recognize that this isn't going anywhere, that the freedom of Israel is just inherently connected with the freedom of Jerusalem … it's a recognition of a reality that's necessary in order for real peace to be achieved in the region, not based on false stupidities that have been promulgated for the last couple decades," Shapiro said.
In Interview This Weekend, President Trump Said the Administration is Going to Make a Decision in the ‘Not Too Distant Future’; Senator Says Comments Suggest Administration is Indecisive on Embassy Relocation
With 2018 Fast Approaching, Schumer Reaffirms His Position That Jerusalem is Undivided Capital of Israel & Says U.S. Should Move Embassy to Jerusalem
U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today said that the U.S. Embassy in Israel should be moved to Jerusalem. In June, President Trump signed a waiver delaying the relocation and, soon after, the Senate passed Schumer’s resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem. More than three months later, Schumer is renewing his call for action.
“This year is the fiftieth anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, yet with 2018 fast approaching, the U.S. still hasn’t moved the embassy or made clear its commitment to Israel’s capital,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “President Trump’s recent comments suggest his indecisiveness on the embassy’s relocation. As someone who strongly believes that Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel, I am calling for the U.S. Embassy in Israel to be relocated to Jerusalem. Moving the embassy as soon as possible would appropriately commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Jerusalem’s reunification and show the world that the U.S. definitively acknowledges Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.”
This week, in an interview with former Governor Mike Huckabee, President Trump said, “We’re going to make a decision in the not too distant future.” Schumer today said that the U.S. should move the embassy as soon as possible and make its commitment to Israel’s capital clear.

You’ve got to hand it to feminists: Just when you think they can’t get any crazier, they go ahead and up the ante. If I’ve written some version of this line before—and I’m sure I have, because today’s feminists are truly the unwanted gift that keeps on giving—please forgive me. My brain tissue is a little scarred by what I’ve just seen.
Perhaps, if you’re unlucky, you’ve witnessed it too: A new video from the group “FCKH8,” a really creative name that would make for a spectacular license plate. Okay, it would actually make a pretty moronic license plate, but I’m trying to say at least one charitable thing about this group of reality-challenged weirdos. FCKH8’s new “feminist advocacy” video, which has already gained hundreds of thousands of Facebook “likes,” features…well, I’ll let their poorly punctuated press release speak for itself:
Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work, and where 1 in 5 women are raped or sexually assaulted in gender-based violence, little girls between 6 and 13 years-old dressed as pretty pink princesses drop F-bombs to draw attention to society’s continued sexism. Asking the question, ‘What’s more offensive? A little girl saying f*ck or the sexist way society treats girls and women’ these adorably articulate little ladies in sparkling tiaras turn the ‘princess in distress’ stereotype on its head and contrast the F-word with words and statistics society should find shocking such as ‘pay inequality’ and ‘rape.’
Spoiler alert: If you like shrill, indignant, oddly self-assured children screaming at you about fake statistics and imaginary oppression, all while dropping more F-bombs than that drunk, impassioned George Wendt look-alike who once sat behind me at a disastrous Chicago Bears game, you will love this video. Sadly, the little girls, likely excited for their huge Internet star turn showcasing the appalling poor judgment of their parents, are not remotely “adorable.” They are insufferable. However, let us forgive these tragic, sassy, satin-clad pawns. They know not what they do.
Don’t Blame the Pretty Princesses
They do not know, for instance, that the “1 in 5 women are raped or sexually assaulted” statistic is laughable, based on a long-discredited online survey with self-selecting respondents and standards equating “attempted kissing” or drunk sex with assault. Similarly, they don’t know that America’s legendary “pay inequality” largely stems from the personal choices of women, not a dastardly, conspiratorial patriarchy trying to keep the ladies down.
On Sunday, Fergie attended TrevorLive LA, a fundraising gala by the Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBT youths.
Fashion designer and film director Tom Ford and actor and singer Kristin Chenoweth were among the night's honorees, but attention has turned to Fergie's odd behavior after she interrupted Armie Hammer, who was onstage to make some remarks about Ford.
The incident began when Fergie approached the podium and tapped Hammer on the shoulder, indicating that she wanted to speak. "I'm actually Armie Hammer, thank you," she said.
The singer then proceeded to crack a few jokes about Hammer, saying, "I'm going to win at the Academy Awards, thanks."
She was soon interrupted when someone in the audience shouted out to Hammer, to which Fergie replied, "They love you, they really do, they really love you," presumably a reference to Sally Fields' iconic Oscar speech.
After a rough start, the singer then began to talk about Ford, but she soon changed the subject and started promoting a single from her new album — and then she broke out into song.

he Plainfield Police Department in Indiana placed a captain on administrative leave after she accused her coworkers of having "white male privilege."
According to the Indy Channel, on Nov. 1 officers in Plainfield, Ind., were asked to attend the Police Supervisors Transgender Awareness Training session.
The training session aimed to teach them how to interact with transgender members of the community.
The course was taught by a representative from the United States Department of Justice as well as a U.S. attorney.
The publication reported that halfway through the session, a 28-year veteran of the Plainfield Police Department questioned the instructors about a statistic, which suggests that transgender people are 3.32 times more likely to experience violence from police.
Video from the training session, provided by the police department to the Indy Channel, captured the exchange.
"My life has never been part of police violence," the officer said.
"Most of the people that I know have never been…accused the police of violence (SIC), so I guess I don't get where that statistic comes from."
The officer was the interrupted by Capt. Carri Weber.
"Because of your white male privilege," she stated.
According to the Indy Channel, the officer and others in the room were angered by Weber's comments.
An instructor attempted to regain control of the room to no avail.
The 23-year-old Canadian actress, born Mercedes Grabowski, died on December 5, her husband Kevin Moore said Canadian porn star August Ames has died aged 23, her husband has confirmed.
Her husband, director Kevin Moore, released a statement confirming the sad news, saying: “She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me.
“Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”
Ames was born Mercedes Grabowski in Nova Scotia and worked in a bar before she joined the adult film industry in 2013.
Since she began performing on camera in 2013, Ames has appeared in more than 200 films.
Her career kicked off in 2013 and she became one of the most popular porn stars on the internet.
This December, her videos on Pornhub had amassed more than 425 million views, making her the 9th most popular star on the site.
Has Corey Feldman been vindicated?
The former child actor claimed in October that he had given the names of sexual predators in Hollywood to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office in 1993 during their investigation into Michael Jackson's molestation charges. The Sheriff’s Office denied those claims, saying they had no records of Feldman revealing such information, until now.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Kelly Hoover told Fox News on Tuesday night in an emailed statement, “Following the recent inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office interview of Mr. Feldman in 1993, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office conducted an additional review for any stored items remaining from the Michael Jackson investigation. In a container which included the original reports from the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office located some detective working copies of audio recordings made during the investigation. A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located. The recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department. Due to the fact that this case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, we are unable to comment further and any documentation or evidence related to this case is exempt from release.”
Fox News had originally reached out to the Sheriff’s Office in October at which time they responded, “We are aware of the statements that Mr. Feldman is making regarding an investigation in 1993. Our records do not indicate that he named any suspects."
Feldman's rep told us, "[Feldman] is in possession of the tapes and justice will be served."
Feldman, 46, had claimed in a Today show interview with Matt Lauer that he “sat down and I gave them names. They're on record. They have all this information.”
The world's oldest eye has been found in a 530 million year old fossil.
The remains of an extinct sea creature include an early form of the eye seen in many modern day animals including crabs, bees and dragonflies, researchers believe.
Scientists made the discovery while examining the well-preserved fossil of a hard-shelled species called a trilobite.
The ancestors of spiders and crabs lived in coastal waters during the Palaeozoic era, between 541 and 251 million years ago.
