Chicago rapper G Herbo was arrested for battery on Wednesday morning. The arrest stems from an argument Herbo allegedly had with the mother of his child, Ariana Fletcher. Fletcher is allegedly currently 14 weeks pregnant by professional boxer Gervonta Davis.




TMZ (@tmz) reported, Fletcher and Herbo got into an argument on Wednesday morning. The argument allegedly got heated and there was some loud yelling. Police say that Herbo allegedly assaulted Fletcher at some point during the argument. Herbo left and later returned, at which time the police questioned him about the argument. The police eventually arrested Herbo and charged him with simple battery. The police said Fletcher sustained minor scratches during the alleged altercation. Herbo’s bond has been set at $2000.







Rapper T.I was arrested while attempting to gain entry into the gated community he lives and owns a home in, during the early hours of Wednesday morning. USA Today (@USATODAY) reports, Henry County Deputy Police Chief, Mike Ireland said a security guard called police to Eagles Landing Country Club in Stockbridge, about 30 minutes southeast of Atlanta, around 4am. The security guard said that he’d allegedly been in an argument with T.I, who had lost his key. T.I was attempting to enter the gated community so he could return to the home he owns with his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris and the couples’ children.




When the police arrived, T.I was arrested and charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness. He was booked and released on $2,250 bail. T.I’s lawyer, Steve Sadow said that T.I identified himself to the security guard and phoned his wife, waking her up from her sleep to have her confirm his identity to the security guard.




“The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. Words were exchanged and apparently, the guard and/or supervisor called the police. When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip’s side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip.” T.I’s lawyer, Steve Sadow said in a statement to NBC affiliate 11Alive.


Respect is earned not given! This was the message that Eagles players held onto all week leading up to last night’s NFC Divisional Playoff matchup against the red hot Atlanta Falcons. The #1 seed Philadelphia Eagles were underdogs against the #6 seeded Atlanta Falcons…..at home! That was about as disrespectful as disrespect could possibly get. Yes, the Birds are without starting QB Carson Wentz, who likely would’ve been MVP this year if not for a late season injury, but, as big of a factor that Carson Wentz was in the Eagles 13-3 record and number seed in the NFL playoffs, he didn’t do it alone. Now, because Wentz is out, the Birds are suddenly underdogs against a number 6 seed who barely snuck into the playoffs? Yeah, that was disrespectful, that was very disrespectful!




Before we get into anything else, let’s be clear about this: THE EAGLES DID NOT PLAY A GREAT GAME. Just our luck, we were 5 points better than the Falcons…..on that day. I believe that the Eagles would’ve lost that game last night against any other NFC team still left in the playoffs. (Saints, Vikings) But, the Birds were good enough to beat the Falcons last night. Especially the defense. Julio Jones had 9 receptions for 101 yards, and Tevin Coleman had 79 rushing yards on 10 carries, but the Eagles still held the Falcons high-powered offense to just 10 points. Looking at the game, and seeing the stats, are two different things. Because a lot of the night Tevin Coleman and Julio Jones seemed unstoppable. The Falcons seemed to move the ball up and down the field at will. The fact that they only came out of this game with just 10 points is amazing, and a major credit to the defense, especially the d-line.




The Eagles offense was not actually as terrible as it looked at times. Nick Foles was an efficient 23/30 for 246 passing yards, and more importantly 0 interceptions. Foles connected with 8 different receivers in the game. RB Jay Ajayi rushed for 54 yards on 15 carries. The stats looked pretty good on paper, but the game didn’t look that way a lot of the time. Foles looked very shaky early on, but in the 2nd half he seemed to settle down and find a little groove. Foles was actually not really that terrible, although I think we would be having a very different conversation if Matt Ryan had completed that final pass in the end zone to Julio Jones. But, he didn’t, and the Eagles pulled out a scrappy 15-10 win at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philly.




Lats night showed how important having the number one seed in the playoffs really is. The fans down at the Linc were out of their minds. The noise bothered the Falcons offense many times over the course of the game. The Eagles will have that home field advantage once again next week when they play the winner of the Saints/Vikings matchup. Yesterday’s game against the Falcons was an ugly affair. But as crazy as this may sound, an ugly game seems to work in favor of the Eagles at this point. If yesterday’s game had gone the way Atlanta had hoped it would (wide open and high scoring), the Eagles wouldn’t have had a chance. Before yesterday’s game, saying that the Eagles could possibly make it to the Super Bowl with Nick Foles at QB probably sounded stupid. This morning, being just one win away from that wild dream becoming a reality doesn’t seem so crazy anymore. In an ugly game, at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philly, the Eagles can actually pull out a win against the Saints or the Vikings. Call me crazy, but I really believe this. I predict an all PA Super Bowl this year! STEELERS VS EAGLES


I guess this is part of Donald Trump making America great again? Eliminating words that threaten him in some type of way? I’m not sure what the purpose of this is, or why there was a need to eliminate the CDC from using certain words in official documents pertaining to their budget report, but, here we are. And just like everything else, this feels like a small step toward something much bigger, and most likely very sinister.




The Washington Post (@wapo) reports, policy analyst at the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, were told of a list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget. Those forbidden words: vulnerable, entitlement, diversity, fetus, evidence based, science based, and transgender.




In some instances, the analyst were given “alternative phrases”. Instead of science based or evidence based, the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes.” In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.




Spokesman for the Health And Human Services, which oversee the CDC told the Washington Post, they “will continue to use the best scientific evidence available to improve the health of all Americans. HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions.”




The question of how to address such issues as sexual orientation, gender identity and abortion rights, all of which received significant visibility under the Obama Administration, has surfaced repeatedly in federal agencies since Trump took office. Several key departments, including HHS, as well as Justice, Education, and Housing and Urban Development, have changed some federal policies and how they collect government information about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans.




Could be about nothing……..or it could be what I said earlier……… most things the Trump administration does, look like the beginning of something much larger and much much more sinister. Take from that what you will, but don’t say you didn’t see a thing coming when that thing finally reveals itself. The writing has been on the wall since the day Trump took office.
