Celebrating the heroics of goalie Adrian after winning football’s European Super Cup last week, Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp launched into an impression of Rocky Balboa. The movie boxer, just like the Vietnam veteran John Rambo, is the creation of superstar Sylvester Stallone , who is celebrating 50 years in the movie business this summer. Next month the Hollywood legend , 73, is back on our screens again with Rambo: Last Blood, an incredible 37 years after releasing Rambo: First Blood. And Stallone says the battles he faces in his own life often resemble those Rocky has fought in the ring. “Every time I’ve failed, people had me out for the count, but I always come back,” says the seasoned actor, writer and filmmaker. Despite still feeling punchy with studio executives – who he says cost him £200million in lost earnings – the action hero has made a sizeable £330million fortune. He wrote and starred in Rocky – it made … [Read more...] about Sly Stallone’s rocky road from sleeping rough to Hollywood star

WASHINGTON – Jeffrey Epstein has hobnobbed with some of the world's most powerful people during his jet-setting life. Future President Donald Trump called him a "terrific guy." Former President Bill Clinton praised his intellect and philanthropic efforts and was a frequent flyer aboard his private jet. The arrest of the billionaire financier on child sex trafficking charges is raising questions about how much his high-powered associates knew about the hedge fund manager's interactions with underage girls, and whether they turned a blind eye to potentially illegal conduct. It's also putting new scrutiny on Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, who, as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, was involved in a 2008 secret plea deal that allowed Epstein to avoid federal charges. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday that Trump hasn't spoken to or had any contact with Epstein in "years and years and years." "The president told me this morning he hasn't talked to … [Read more...] about What did Jeffrey Epstein’s famous friends know and see?

Donald Trump has officially kicked off his re-election campaign with a grievance-filled rally in Florida as he jabbed and the press and the political establishment he ran against in 2016. The US leader complained he had been "under assault from the very first day" of his presidency by a "fake news media" and "illegal witch hunt" that had tried to keep him and his supporters down. Addressing thousands of supporters in Orlando, he accused his critics of "un-American conduct" and telling the crowd that Democrats "want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it". "A vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream," he said. Mr Trump ripped "radical" and "unhinged" Democrats even as he made only passing mention of any of the men and women running to replace him. The apocalyptic language and finger-pointing made clear that Mr Trump's 2020 campaign will probably look a lot like his successful run three … [Read more...] about Trump officially launches 2020 re-election bid at Florida rally
