White House has warned European allies to prepare for a Russian INVASION of Ukraine with further border military build-up and tensions over gas supplies
Troubling reports of an increased amount of tanks and artillery at Russia's border with Ukraine prompted Biden to send his CIA chief to Moscow to express 'serious' concerns in a talk with Russian President Putin. Secretary of State Antony Blinken echoed similar concerns in a press conference with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba yesterday, telling reporters that 'We're concerned by reports of unusual Russian military activity near Ukraine. We're monitoring the region very closely, as we always do, we'll continue to consult closely as well with allies and partners on this issue.' Russia denied accusations it was planning an attack but expressed anger over American warships in the Black Sea that it says sailed too close to its territory.

Panel investigating January 6th MAGA riot tells ex-Trump aide Mark Meadows to appear Friday at 10 am for his deposition or he will be held in contempt of Congress
The House committee investigating the January 6th insurrection in the Capitol told former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows that he must appear for his deposition at 10 am on Friday or he will be considered in contempt of Congress. Panel chairman, Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, wrote to Meadows attorney on Thursday night to say there is "no valid legal basis" for Meadow's noncompliance with panel's subpoena. 'Simply put, there is no valid legal basis for Mr. Meadows's continued resistance to the Select Committee's subpoena.

'We don't want any more black pastors': Defense attorney for three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery wants Rev. Al Sharpton BANNED from court for 'intimidating' nearly all-white jury
A defense attorney for one of the three white men charged in the murder of black jogger Ahmaud Arbery (inset) has sought to ban Rev. Al Sharpton (right) from the courtroom, claiming he is 'intimidating' jurors. Defense attorney Kevin Gough (left) on Thursday raised his concerns with the activist's presence in the Georgia court, but did not find a receptive audience in Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley. 'If we're going to start a precedent, starting yesterday, where we're going to bring high-profile members of the African American community into the courtroom to sit with the family during the trial in the presence of the jury, I believe that's intimidating and it's an attempt to pressure... or influence the jury,' said Gough, who represents William 'Roddie' Bryan.
Security footage of Ahmaud Arbery visiting semi-constructed house FIVE times in months before he was shot dead is shown to jury as they watch four-hour deposition from homeowner who called 911
Jurors in the trial of three Georgia men charged with Ahmaud Arbery's death were shown footage of the 25-year-old visiting a house under construction multiple times in the months before his death. It is the same home Arbery was later spotted wandering into that sparked the deadly chase by ex-cop Gregory McMichael, 65, and son Travis, 35, through the predominantly white neighborhood of Satilla Shores in the coastal city of Brunswick, Georgia on February 23, 2020. Jurors were shown the footage as they watched a four-hour recorded deposition by construction boss Larry English, 51, (top inset) who was building a 'dream second home' two houses away from the McMichaels. Arbery was first seen at the property on October 25, 2019 (main) before visiting again on November 18, (top) December 17, and on February 11, 2020. He was seen at the home a final time during the day 12 days later on February 23 when he was chased and killed.
Iran-backed Houthi Rebels storm US embassy in Yemen and seize at least 25 hostages and files: State Department demands release of Yemeni staff
Iranian-backed Shi'ite Muslim Houthi forces have taken at least 25 people connected to the US embassy in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a, local reports have said. The compound shut in 2015, and the conflict-ridden nation has been embroiled in a civil war for nearly seven years. The State Department confirmed to DailyMail.com that the insurgents have taken staff and equipment hostage, and is demanding their release and that they vacate the embassy compound. Since the facility shut down, the US has been conducting its diplomatic Yemeni relations out of Saudi Arabia. According to the regional reports, three of the hostages are a former embassy employee who worked for the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative, an economic official there and an employee of the United States Agency for International Development.
Crime-ravaged Seattle is now so dangerous the city can no longer protect its own workers: Security guards are hired to walk county staffers to station or ferry (but you're on your own if you work in the private sector)
Seattle has become so dangerous that the city can no longer protect its own employees, with security guards now escorting them after they finish work. King County's new 'walking bus' will debut on November 15, and see council workers based in Downtown Seattle and nearby Pioneer Square escorted to a nearby train station and ferry terminal each evening.

Biden pays tribute to son Beau, the 'great negro pitcher' Satchel Paige and troops killed in Afghanistan in Veterans Day speech at Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on its Centennial
President Joe Biden paid tribute to his son Beau, the 'great negro' baseball player Satchel Paige, the troops killed in Afghanistan and Colin Powell during his Veterans Day address at Arlington National Cemetery. 'Each of our veterans is a link in a chain of patriots that has stood in defense of our country,' Biden said, remarking how his own son, Beau, had called him to tell him he would be serving in Iraq. 'I said, "What in the heck have you done,"' the president recalled. Biden paid tribute to a number of veterans alive and dead during his speech at the Memorial Amphitheater, which took place after he and First Lady Jill Biden attended a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which turned 100 years old on Thursday. Biden is the first president since President Dwight Eisenhower in the 1950s to have had a child who served in an active conflict. The late Beau Biden was a member of the Delaware Army National Guard and was deplayed to Iraq in 2008 as an Army lawyer. Beau Biden died of brain cancer in 2015. The president has suggested that burn pits in Iraq could have played a role in his son developing the fatal disease. During his remarks, Biden pledged that veterans' care would be expanded to include diseases caused by Agent Orange and burn pit exposure. It's been historically rare for a president's child to see battle, but Quentin Roosevelt, the son of President Teddy Roosevelt, was killed in action during World War I in 1918, nearly a decade after the president left office.
Actor Wallace Shawn DEFENDS Woody Allen from daughter Dylan Farrow's childhood sexual abuse allegations and says 'she, her mother Mia and brother Ronan are trapped in pledging eternal loyalty to the accuracy of her account'
Actor Wallace Shawn, who has appeared in six Woody Allen movies, defended the filmmaker against sexual abuse claims by daughter Dylan Farrow in an op-ed, writing that the allegations don't 'square with the sense' he has of Allen. Shawn, 77, says Dylan may have misremembered her claims that Allen touched her inappropriately when she was 7 years old in 1992. He also posited that Dylan may have been influenced by her mother Mia Farrow's feelings toward Allen. At the time, Mia and Allen were estranged and Allen was just beginning a relationship with another one of Mia's daughters, Soon-Yi Previn. Shawn's defense, published in TheWrap on Wednesday, mirrors the lines put forth by Allen and his supporters since the case became public in the early 1990s as part of a custody battle between Allen and Mia. Dylan's brother Ronan, a journalist who has reported extensively on sexual assault by powerful men, has supported Dylan's allegations. Their brother Moses Farrow, Allen, and their adopted sister Soon-Yi, who is still married to Allen, categorically deny them. In a lengthy 3,500-word essay, Shawn criticized Dylan's rebuke of actors who continue to work with Allen despite her allegations, which she resurfaced in a New York Times op-ed in 2014.
Defense rests in Kyle Rittenhouse trial after days of dramatic meltdowns, explosive testimony and courtroom clashes that could still see the case tossed with a mistrial
The eighth day of Kyle Rittenhouse's trial is in session in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Judge Schroeder could now call a mistrial at any time should he decide that Prosecutor Thomas Binger has over-stepped in any way. Early this morning the judge revealed that the court has been inundated with offensive emails, some calling the judge a racist. Speaking ahead of the start of testimony Judge Schroeder said he would deal with all such things adding, 'I wouldn't want to be those people'. The defense is moving rapidly towards the conclusion of their case and could rest today. It has just three witnesses left to call with all three expected today. On Wednesday Rittenhouse broke down in the witness stand as he recalled the moment he was 'ambushed' by Joseph Rosenbaum the night he shot him dead.

In response to the video of Kyle Rittenhouse (right) sobbing as he claimed self-defense for killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber in 2020, Lebron James (left) tweeted, 'What tears?????' 'I didn't see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.' James had previously been critical of the state's decision not to file charges against the white officer who shot Black, a black man, calling it a 'blow to the heart and to the gut.' The tweet was the first time the Los Angeles Lakers star has spoken out about the Rittenhouse trial since it began last week.
NYC Mayor-elect Eric Adams brushes off BLM threat to 'riot' and cause 'bloodshed' if he deploys plainclothes anti-crime unit: Doubles down on vow to send NYPD cops to crime-ridden areas and says 'this is my promise and I'm going to do it'
The comments came from New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome after debating Adams during a contentious closed-door sit-down event with the incoming Democrat leader. While Adams was able to make headway with the activists on his plans to fight poverty in the black community when he takes office, the former NYPD captain vowed to bring back the controversial anti-crime units composed of about 600 plainclothes officers that target violent crimes - something BLM was angry about. The mayor-elect doubled down on his promise Thursday, saying: 'This is what I'm going to do. That was my promise and I'm going to keep it.' Adams and Newsome also clashed about accountability on Wednesday, with the mayor-elect hitting back at the activist and saying Newsome, too, needs to be held accountable - not just sit back and make demands. The closed-door sit-down was held in Brooklyn and live-streamed on Instagram. Newsome said outside Brooklyn Borough Hall on Wednesday. 'There will be riots. There will be fire, and there will be bloodshed.' Bottom-inset: BLM protests in New York in September 2021.

'Table of six and no friends': Axed RHOC star Kelly Dodd heckles Heather and Terry Dubrow at restaurant in foul-mouthed tirade following feud over COVID
Recently axed RHOC star Kelly Dodd launched a foul-mouthed attack on former co-star Heather and her husband Terry Dubrow on Wednesday evening, as they were eating dinner at a West Coast restaurant. The feuding reality stars came to blows earlier this year, when Kelly, 46, claimed she and husband Rick had contracted COVID-19 from Heather's 16-year-old son Nicholas, 16. Finding herself at the same dining establishment as Heather, 52, and Terry, 63, the former Real Housewives of Orange County star began to insult the couple as she filmed them over her shoulder. In her social media videos, Dodd pointed fingers at the couple, calling them "losers" with "zero friends" and alleging they threatened to sue her and her husband, Rick Leventhal. "Should I ask these assholes why they're suing me?" Dodd asked. "Terry and Heather. Why are they suing me? I think [Rick] might ask why they put a cease and desist on us."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a glamorous gala in New York City last night to celebrate the military on the eve of Veterans Day in the US and Armistice Day in Britain. Meghan Markle arrived at the 'Salute to Freedom' event - held on an aircraft carrier which houses the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum - in a flowing red Carolina Herrera gown with a long train which was slashed to the thigh. The 40-year-old mother-of-two's dress for the gala matched her red satin $350 Giuseppe Zanotti slingback stilettos - a color chosen to match the red poppies she and Prince Harry both wore on their outfits. Harry was in black tie, with the KCVO (Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order) Neck Order and Star on his bow tie. This is a medal given by the Queen in recognition of distinguished personal service to the monarchy. Asked on the red carpet whether Meghan was proud of her husband, she replied: 'I'm always proud of him.' Harry, who served in the British Army for ten years, handed out medals for the Intrepid Valor Awards to five service members, veterans and military families who are living with the 'invisible wounds of war'.

Princess Charlene may NOT move back to Monaco palace: Sister-in-law claims royal return to apartment above chocolate shop where she lived before going to South Africa
Princess Charlene of Monaco may not live with her husband in the Prince's Palace following her return home, nor even resume her public engagements, MailOnline has learned. The claims are made by Chantell Wittstock, Charlene's sister-in-law and PR for her charitable Foundation in South Africa. The princess may return to the apartment (pictured inset), some 200 yards away from the palace (as illustrated by the map), where she was living before leaving for South Africa in January. It will inevitably cast a shadow of doubt over the staged photocall earlier this week when Charlene was reunited with Prince Albert, 63, and their children after a 10-month absence from Monaco (left).
Tiger King... the second bite! It was a lockdown TV sensation - the series about big cat owners that ended with a hitman drama and a long jail sentence. As it roars back, what does the woman Joe Exotic wanted dead have to say?
One of its stars desperately wanted to be in it but is in prison, the other is so determined to stay out of it that she's gone to court. As for the supporting cast of characters, well, many of them have returned and they're as outlandish as ever. Tiger King is back and the surprising monster streaming hit of the pandemic promises to be just as deranged second time round. Tiger King, alias Joe Exotic, suited those crazy times to a tee - a mullet-haired, assault rifle-brandishing, drug-abusing, gay polygamist, hillbilly showman. He ran an anarchic roadside zoo in Oklahoma full of lions and tigers, and was fighting a vicious battle with his nemesis, Florida big cats rights activist Carole Baskin.
Terror of the Trenches... never looked so REAL: New colorized images give a glimpse of the carnage and camaraderie during some of WWI's bloodiest battles
The photos, which have also been carefully restored, feature in The Great War Illustrated 1915. The book was written by Roni Wilkinson under the pen names William Langford and Jack Holroyd, whilst the images were colourised by his son, Jon. Most of the images in the book were taken in France and Belgium on the Western Front, but others show troops as they fought soldiers from the Ottoman Empire in the disastrous Gallipoli campaign in what is now Turkey. One photo (left) shows Scottish troops - who had been dubbed 'devils in skirts' or 'ladies from hell' by German soldiers who had never seen men in kilts - sitting in a trench on the Western Front whilst accompanied by a dog. Also seen are three soldiers from the York and Lancaster Regiment outside the entrance to their dugout near the Yser Canal in Belgium in July 1915 (bottom). A third photo shows troops in Turkey (top right) as they carry their weapons and equipment.

The fast-fashion waste mountain: Gigantic pile of clothes including Christmas sweaters and ski boots looms over desert in Chile - a symbol of how the industry is polluting the world
The Atacama desert in Chile is home to a mountain of discarded clothing (pictured), containing everything from Christmas sweaters to ski boots, as the pollution from the industry of fast fashion continues to grow. Some 59,000 tons of clothing arrive each year at the Iquique port in the Alto Hospicio free zone in northern Chile, where it is bought by clothing merchants or smuggled across the border to other Latin American nations. But at least 39,000 tons that cannot be sold end up in rubbish dumps in the desert. According to a 2019 UN report, global clothing production doubled between 2000 and 2014, and the industry is 'responsible for 20 percent of total water waste on a global level.' The same report said that clothing and footwear manufacturing contributes eight percent of global greenhouse gases, and that 'every second, an amount of textiles equivalent to a garbage truck is buried or burnt.' But the fast fashion clothing mountain has encouraged some to develop companies focused on recycling the fabrics for more sustainable ends.

Cat burglar! Harpo the klepto-kitty 'steals' toys and fridge magnets after his owner trains him to fetch items she wants!
The footage was captured in Portland, Oregon, by owner Rain, of her 13-year-old cat called Harpo. It shows Harpo carrying a range of objects to his owner, including a large plush toy killer whale, and meowing proudly as he delivers them. Rain said she first became aware of the cat's kleptomaniac tendencies when Harpo was aged two. When he turned eleven she started to train him by turning the stealing into a game, so he wouldn't take things she didn't want him to. She shares clips of her 'glorious goofball' Harpo's 'heists' on social media, and she and her cats have more than 1,800 followers on Twitter alone.
