North Korea’s foreign minister has accused Donald Trump of declaring war on his Country and said Pyongyang now has the right to shoot down US bombers. The North Korean prime minister said that this could also apply to US warplanes that are not even in North Korea’s airspace. The White House called the statements “absurd.” The Pentagon warned Pyongyang to stop provocations. North Korea’s comments were in response to Trump’s Tweet that North Korea’s leaders would not “be around for much longer” if they continued their rhetoric. According to BBC news(UK) (@BBCNEWS), North Korean Prime Minister Ri-Yong-Ho told reporters as he was leaving the UN General Assembly on Saturday “The whole world should clearly remember that it was the U.S. who first declared war on our Country.” The North Korean Prime Minister added “Since the United States declared war on our Country, we will have every right to make counter-measures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our Country.” White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was mostly able to avoid and dodge questions about the statement by North Korea’s Prime Minister at the press briefing this afternoon, as the majority of the press corps were more focused on the president’s remarks about NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem to protest police brutality in the Country. Over the weekend at a rally in Alabama the president said that NFL owners should “fire those son of a bitch*s” if they don’t stand for the National Anthem.
Move over Taylor Swift and “Look What You Made Me Do.” A new queen, and a new single has just moved in to grab that number one spot. Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow is now the number one song in America. The song has received major plays everywhere all summer, and has now officially moved Cardi into that coveted number one spot. Bodak Yellow is the first solo song by a female rap artist to top the charts in 19 years! Cardi B is only the fifth female rapper to ever hold the #1 spot. Cardi now joins Lauren Hill, Lil’ Kim, Shawnna, and Iggy Azelia as the only female rappers to hold such an honor.
Cardi B’s rise to stardom has really been an amazing thing to witness. From Instagram, to Love & Hip Hop, to a successful rap career, and now to the #1 song in the Country. Wow! Through it all, Cardi has remained consistently…..Cardi. She has not changed one bit. When I saw Cardi on Love & Hip Hop I had no idea that she was even a rapper. I thought she was just another person that was being brought on the show to make trouble and fight. I was wrong. Love & Hip Hop was just a stepping stone and not a career move for Ms. B. You have to love, or at least respect Cardi B’s grind from the bottom to the top. It’s proof that if you work hard enough, and maybe catch a break here and there, you can achieve your dreams. Congratulations Cardi!
Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for sexting with a minor on Monday. Sentencing Judge, Denise Cote also slapped Werner with three years of supervised release. Judge Cote also stated “because of the defendant’s notoriety, there is intense interest in the defendant’s plea and sentence. It could make a difference in lives and is a very significant part of this sentence.” Cote also added “This is a serious crime that deserves serious punishment.” CNN (@CNN) reported that Werner cried when the sentence was handed down.
In May of this year, Werner pleaded guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor. The charges stem from communications that Werner had with a then, 15 year old girl on Social Media sites between January and March of 2016. For those of you who may have visions in your mind of Werner going to one of those hardcore penitentiary’s like you’ve seen on tv shows like “OZ” and “The Night Of”, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but it’s highly unlikely that this will be the case in Werner’s situation. Federal prisoners are housed based on guidelines which factor in: nature of the crime, criminal history, and a few other determining factors. A first time, non-violent sex offender like Werner will most likely be sent to a prison camp to serve his 21 month sentence, which could end up being as little as 15-18 months if he plays his cards right. Prison camp is exactly what it sounds like. No cells, no barbed wire, no prison guards roaming the recreation yard carrying large rifles. There’s probably not even a “Big Bubba” there anxiously awaiting Werner’s arrival. Prison camp is pretty much like the summer-overnight camp that you went to when you were a kid. The only difference is, this one is for adults. Adults who have been convicted of a crime. Werner will report to a yet to be disclosed, or decided prison on November 6 of this year.
Dwayne Wade is giving back about $8 million to get out of Chicago. It was announced yesterday that Wade and the Bulls both agreed to the terms, making the 35 year old Wade a free agent. The buyout makes the rumors of Wade reuniting with his friend and former teammate, Lebron James look a little more possible. This time the duo could possibly be united in Cleveland. Along with the Cavs, sources have sited Miami, San Antonio, and Oklahoma City as possible landing spots for D-Wade. Wade hinted to the Associsated Press (@AP) that his decision may be a quick one, or that something may already be in the works, when he said “I’m going to take tonight and some of tomorrow and speak to the teams and players that are on my list and take it from there.” Wade also added “My decision is a pure basketball decision, and I’ll makes the one that fits me best at this point in my career and with what I feel I have to offer a team that needs what I have to offer.” My guess is that Wade has already made the decision to join Lebron down in Cleveland, at least for one season. Who knows what the future holds after that. Where do you think Wade will end up?
