During a press conference, AG Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey acknowledged a concern that the terrorist attacks in Brussels would inspire copycats.
Speaking at “The Revenant” premiere at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo yesterday, DiCaprio stated the US needed to “do its part” in fixing climate change, and that includes voting Democrat.
“We need somebody, certainly in the most powerful country in the world, who believes in modern science, who believes imperical truths,” the actor stated. “We should not have a candidate who doesn’t believe in modern science to be leading our country. Climate change is one of the most concerning issues facing all of humanity and the United States needs to do its part.”
Although he didn’t mention Republicans by name, GOP candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz like many in the party routinely deny the left’s constant climate fears. Meanwhile, Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders make climate change a staple of their agendas.
The Titanic actor was previously criticized after using his 2016 Oscars acceptance speech to promote the climate change agenda, despite his own lavish lifestyle.
“Climate change is real,” he said at the 88th Academy Awards. “It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat affecting our species. We need to work together and stop procrastinating.”
Donald Trump’s latest attacks against Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly are “beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate,” the network said in a statement Friday.
The Republican candidate, who first attacked Kelly in August for her hard-hitting questioning at a GOP debate, called for a boycott of the top-rated primetime cable news show “The Kelly File.” As with past social media insults directed at Kelly, Trump got personal, calling Kelly “sick” and “overrated.”

The shooter, Vester Flanagan, gave no sign of his destination or next move when he fled after gunning down the journalists from Roanoke station WDBJ7 on Wednesday, theFranklin County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
The gunman had an arsenal that he claims to have stumbled upon in a park near the train station. Like three other men accused of drawing up failed plans for attacks in France recently, the suspect denied any links to terrorism, telling his lawyer he was homeless and only wanted to rob a train “to eat.”
Instead, the assault rifle jammed, and he was tackled and bound with a necktie by three Americans and a Briton who were celebrated Monday with France’s highest honor. Now, with many lives potentially saved on the high-speed train by quick-thinking and courageous passengers, the limits of security measures were thrown into relief by a lone attacker during a less-sophisticated act of violence.
As a result, many speculate that Turkey, which has categorically opposed the creation of a sovereign Kurdistan near its borders, is using ISIS as an excuse to engage in military action, but doing so mostly against the PKK and the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG and YPJ). “In Turkey’s recent roundup of 1,300 people it identified as terrorism suspects, 137 of those arrested were linked to the Islamic State and 847 were linked to the P.K.K.,” notes The New York Times, “At the same time, Turkey bombed P.K.K. positions in southeastern Turkey and northern Iraq, claiming that the militants could attack Turkish areas from across the border.”
