Becki Falwell, the wife of disgraced former Liberty University leader Jerry Falwell Jr., revealed in a tell-all interview released Monday that she used to make sex tapes with her much younger pool boy ex-lover, Giancarlo Granda.
‘I had a big Canon camera. A couple of times I put it on the dresser and Giancarlo agreed to it,’ Becki, 54, told Vanity Fair, alleging her husband did not know she and Granda, 30, had filmed them.
Jerry’s time as president of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, came to an end last year after Granda’s revelations about the years-long affair emerged.
Granda claimed that Jerry enjoyed watching him have sex with Becki after they first met in Miami in 2012, when Granda was 21. He even claimed that they formed a ‘throuple’ – a polyamorous couple who invite a third person to join their relationship.
Crime, anonymity and discord among neighbors and racial polarization are inevitable, and River Forest residents shouldn’t “long” for a community without them.
That was the message of “racial healing” expert and McCormick Theological Seminary professor Reggie L. Williams, who kicked off Mayor Cathy Adduci’s “White Accountability” re-education series for caucasian village residents at Dominican University with a lecture titled, “Longing for Mayberry: How Cultural Ideals Serve as Weapons of Exclusion.”
Mayberry, North Carolina was the fictional setting for The Andy Griffith Show, which ran on CBS-TV in prime time from 1960-68.
Vice President Kamala Harris said on TODAY Thursday that if Russian President Vladimir Putin takes “aggressive action” in Ukraine, the United States is “prepared to levy serious and severe costs.”
Harris’ remarks came after President Joe Biden predicted at a press conference Wednesday that Russia will invade Ukraine, saying his guess is that Putin “will move in, he has to do something.”
A senior administration official followed by telling reporters in a telephone briefing Wednesday night evening that the United States was prepared to impose sweeping sanctions on Russia regardless of the amount of territory seized in a possible invasion of Ukraine.
A top member of the U.S. team negotiating with Iran has left the role after urging a tougher stance on nuclear talks.
A State Department official confirmed that Richard Nephew, known as the architect of sanctions on Tehran, had stepped down as U.S. Deputy Special Envoy for Iran.
At the same time, the Wall Street Journal reported that two other negotiators had stepped aside because they wanted a harder negotiating position.
The team’s policy differences reportedly involved the enforcement of existing sanctions and even pulling out of the talks altogether.
Their departures, another blow to President Joe Biden’s foreign policy goals and a State Department grappling with Russian diplomats who appear poised for conflict in Ukraine, come at a critical time in talks that resumed two months ago.
Western diplomats say they hope for a breakthrough in the coming weeks – but critical differences remain between the two sides and Britain on Tuesday warned of a looming impasse.
Fox News’s Peter Doocy grilled White House press secretary Jen Psaki on the nationwide crime surge and skyrocketing murder rate during a press conference Monday.
“Does he [President Joe Biden] know that after a year in office people do not feel safe in this country?” Doocy asked, in reference to the soaring crime rate across the U.S. […]
“Well, I think we should be responsible in how we’re reporting to the public what the roles are and what the reasons are for the surge in crime,” Psaki said. “Gun violence is a huge reason for the surge in crime. Underfunding of some police departments and their need for additional resources, something the president has advocated for consistently through the course of his career, that’s something we know we need to take action on.”
A remarkable failure of meaningful reporting about the massive military buildup in and around Ukraine in recent weeks results in most Americans having no idea how close we have been brought to armed conflict with the Russian Federation.
Even those Americans who have sought out news about Ukraine can do little more than watch from the sidelines as those currently leading our nation inch us toward a potential catastrophe.
Although going to war is the most consequential decision that a nation can make, the people are rarely consulted by the elites, who are largely immunized from the consequences of their actions. If the people were actually consulted, wars would be rare events indeed.
The rhetoric about the Ukraine conflict is out of control. President Joe Biden threatens that Russia would “pay a heavy price” for any incursion into Ukraine. Secretary of State Antony Blinken warns of “massive consequences” for Russia. Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, “We don’t rule out first-use nuclear action.” First-use nuclear action rhetoric is not only extremely dangerous, but these types of nonsensical remarks also threaten the stability of the entire world.
Progressiveness and inclusivity aren’t exclusive to the real world. The M&M universe got their own major upgrade in those categories earlier this week. In the wake of the so-called “woke culture shift,” Mars, Incorporated is making strides to keep up with the cultural changes.
So, what’s changed?
Mars announced a new project on Thursday that comes as an effort to highlight the personality of their M&M’s instead of their genders. This includes a complete redesign of the green M&M. Known for her sexuality and seductiveness, the character previously wore white go-go boots. She was also featured in a variety of ads highlighting her sex appeal and even posed for Sports Illustrated. Pretty impressive resume for a cartoon candy.
The Supreme Court announced Monday it will reconsider race-based affirmative action in college admissions, a move that could eliminate campus practices that have widely benefitted Black and Hispanic students.
The justices said they will hear challenges to policies at Harvard and the University of North Carolina that use students’ race among many criteria to decide who should gain a coveted place in an entering class.
The cases would be heard in the session that begins next October, with a decision likely by June 2023.
U.S. stocks fell Monday following the S&P 500′s worst week since March 2020, as investors awaited more corporate earnings results and a key policy decision from the Federal Reserve.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost about 862 points, or 2.5%, falling for a seventh straight day. The S&P 500 dipped 3.1%. The benchmark is down more than 10% from its intraday high. The Nasdaq Composite declined 3.7%, falling deeper into correction territory.
The market action Monday followed a brutal week on Wall Street in the face of mixed company earnings and worries about rising interest rates.
Monday’s pullback put the S&P 500 down more than 9% this month, on pace for its worst monthly decline since March 2020 and worst January performance ever. The Dow was also headed for its biggest one-month loss since March 2020, falling more than 7%. The Nasdaq, meanwhile, has dropped roughly 14% in January and is on pace for its worst month since October 2008 — when it plunged 17.7%.
