‘You’re on my time’: Florida woman allegedly pulls gun on Uber driver and forces them to drive her around town: police

Published

A Florida woman pulled a gun on her Uber driver and allegedly made her complete suspicious tasks, according to the Palm Beach Post.

An Uber driver, who has not been identified, picked up Betty Jo Halter, 44, from a storage center. Once Halter allegedly got in the car she began loading items into the car really fast.

The Uber driver asked Halter to remove her items. At this point, Halter pulled out a gun from her purse.

“I’m not afraid to use it, b****,” Halter allegedly said. “You’re on my time, and will do as I say.”

Halter forced the Uber driver to turn off her phone so they couldn’t be tracked, and had her drive around multiple neighborhoods in search of another man.

Once they arrived at Halter’s destination, she made the driver unload the boxes. The Uber driver was not allowed to go home. “Your shift ends when I say it does,” Halter said.

However, once Halter stepped out of the vehicle, the Uber driver quickly drove off. The driver immediately called 911. Police arrested Halter at her home and she was charged with aggravated assault and  false imprisonment.

John Cornyn has never lost an election. He’s trying to convince Texas Republicans that his streak is in jeopardy in 2020.

“We are, I think, no longer the reliably red state we have been,” says the U.S. senator, who has emerged as a top target for Texas Democrats in 2020.

John Cornyn is an enigma.

It may not be his own doing. After all, it should be counterintuitive to describe the most powerful Texan to serve in the U.S. Senate since Lyndon Johnson as a shrinking violet.

But Cornyn is an outlier within a generation of larger-than-life Texas politicians who have become national fixtures for smiling in mugshots, blowing up their own party’s national conventions in a hail of jeerslivestreaming road trips, bragging about snuffing out a coyote while jogging, or filibustering while wearing pink sneakers or reading Dr. Seuss.

Morning Joe hilariously compares Trump 2020 to Elvis in 1977: ‘Lumbering across the stage, trying to sing the old hits’

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough compared President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign kickoff to Elvis Presley concerts in the months before the past-his-prime rock legend died from a heart attack.

The president treated his supporters at Orlando's Amway Center to a revue of his "greatest hits" -- attacking Hillary Clinton, immigrants, existing trade deals, the Washington "swamp" -- and the "Morning Joe" host said his act had grown stale and tired.

"I mean no disrespect to the king of rock 'n' roll, but this is Elvis in '77, just kind of lumbering across the stage, sweating," Scarborough said.

Corsica’s ‘cat-fox’: On the trail of what may be a new species

Published

on

In the forest undergrowth of northern Corsica, two wildlife rangers open a cage to reveal a striped, tawny-coated animal, one of 16 felines known as "cat-foxes" in the area and thought to be a new species.

"We believe that it's a wild natural species which was known but not scientifically identified because it's an extremely inconspicuous animal with nocturnal habits," says Pierre Benedetti, chief environmental technician of the National Hunting and Wildlife Office (ONCFS).

"It's a wonderful discovery," he tells AFP, holding the feline -- called "Ghjattu volpe" in Corsican -- found in Asco forest on the French Mediterranean island.
