    A victim of Jeffery Epstein says the Duke of York being stripped of royal duties is not enough,  because he's still living a 'privileged and wealthy life' following his friendship with the disgraced paedophile. The former model who uses the name 'KiKi' and claims she was sexually assaulted by Epstein in 2004 at the age of 19, and in February penned an open letter to Prince Andrew urging him to cooperate with the FBI's probe into the late financier.  Speaking to FEMAIL ahead of Crime + Investigation's Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, she insisted Andrew should be 'held accountable' for his friendship with the paedophile, and that it's 'ridiculous' to think being stripped of royal duties is a worthy 'punishment'.  In November last year, Andrew took early retirement from royal duties in the wake of his disastrous Newsnight interview in which he failed to express sympathy for Epstein's victims, amid allegations from Virginia Roberts Giuffre...

    While Donald Trump continues to slip in the polls against Joe Biden, the president still remains ahead among two demographics – male and white voters, but the presumed Democratic nominee is still ahead in almost every other demographic. Overall, if the election were held today, Biden would earn 49 per cent of the vote, which is 8 per cent more than Trump's 41 per cent, according to a Fox News poll released Sunday. 'First of all, I'm not losing, because those are fake polls,' Trump told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace in a pre-recorded interview. 'They were fake in 2016 and now they're even more fake. The polls were much worse in 2016.'  Trump has continuously dismissed polls showing Biden winning as 'fake,' claiming they will be proven wrong just like what happened in his 2016 victory against Hillary Clinton. The president also still refuses to say if he...

    President Donald Trump brushed off a question about why more black people are dying at the hands of police, arguing 'so are white people.' Trump called the killing of George Floyd 'terrible' but bristled when CBS' Catherine Herridge asked him why black people are 'still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country.'  'So are white people. So are white people. What a terrible question to ask. So are white people,' he responded during an interview at the White House on Tuesday. 'More people, by the way. More white people.'  Although half of the people shot and killed by police are white, The Washington Post found in July study of five years of police shootings, black Americans are shot at a disproportionate rate.  While black Americans account for less than 13 per cent of the U.S. population, they are killed by police at more than twice the rate of white...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The coronavirus has canceled organ transplants nationwide but UPMC said donations in Western Pennsylvania haven’t been disrupted at all. Waiting lists for deceased donors remain long and many “would be” recipients never live to get one. That’s why doctors tell KDKA that they want more people to know about living donors. There are only a few qualifying organs for this type of procedure, and one of them is the liver. “Roughly 95 percent come from a deceased donor and only five percent come from a living donor,” said Abhi Humar, chief of transplant at UPMC. (Photo Credit: KDKA) Dr. Humar said roughly 25 percent of people die while on the waiting list. If there’s a willing match, this option gives people a much faster shot at a second chance. This strongly benefits people like 71-year-old Al Jaworski of Westmoreland County. He and his wife, Cookie, are waiting...
