Angelina Jolie saved the world as Lara Croft and stole men’s hearts as a spy in Mr & Mrs Smith. Now, the star appears to have added real-life crimefighting to her CV. Documents leaked this week claim she once offered to act as a honeytrap to snare African warlord Joseph Kony. She allegedly hatched a plot with the International Criminal Court’s then-chief prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, in which she’d lure Kony to dinner. Jolie is yet to comment but, if it’s true, she joins stars like Marlene Dietrich in reported links to covert ops.

Law professor Pamela Karlan did more than cross the line in taking a cheap shot at President Donald Trump’s son, Barron Trump, in her pro-impeachment testimony. In openly demonstrating her strong personal animus against Trump, she disqualified herself as an expert witness. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not intimating that these proceedings have anything to do with evidence. They are merely a ruse to formalize the Democrats’ pre-ordained conclusion. In responding to a softball question about the difference between a president and a king, Karlan said, “Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article 2 does not give him the power to do anything he wants, and I’ll just give you one example that shows you the difference between him and a king, which is the Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.” These leftist academics are so used to being intellectually … [Read more...] about LIMBAUGH: Trump-Hating Leftists Are No Friends Of The Constitution
Felicity Huffman tweeted about "back to school hacks" before she was caught up in a college admissions scandal.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is not prepared to splash the cash when it comes to signing Paul Pogba . The Manchester United star continues to angle for a move away after missing out on a transfer during the summer window. Pogba hasn't featured for the Red Devils since the end of September after suffering an ankle injury. But Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane remains extremely interested in signing the United wantaway in the near future. However, Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo report president Perez isn't as keen on the Frenchman and is only willing to sanction a cut-price deal of £50m. The Madrid chief was the stumbling block in the summer too, after being unwilling to meet United's £180m price tag after spending almost £300m on new talent at the Bernabeu. Perez is still unwilling to push through a deal before the summer and his low-ball offer is unlikely to persuade United chiefs to part ways with their star attraction, even if the player continues to look for … [Read more...] about Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez names price he will pay for Paul Pogba transfer
