U.S. Air Force Airmen in Charge of Nuclear Weapons ... Trippin' on LSD

5/24/2018 6:50 AM PDT

Now this will scare the crap out of you ... a group of Air Force airmen responsible for guarding nuclear weapons were heavy into LSD and cocaine.

The jaw-dropping revelations just surfaced ... and not because the government wanted it known. Turns out one of the airmen screwed up and posted a big enough hint on social media to raise eyebrows, and through a series of Freedom of Information Act demands, the Associated Press got the story.

The service members were part of the 90th Missile Wing, responsible for one third of the 400 Minutemen 3 missiles tucked away in silos across the northern Great Plains.

The LSD use was especially problematic, because it's an hallucinogen that can permanently mess up the brain. As the Air Force noted in a dozen court marshals during the scandal -- which went down in 2015 and 2016 -- LSD has "profound effects" from even a tiny amount, causing "paranoia, fear and panic, unwanted and overwhelming feelings, unwanted life-changing spiritual experiences, and flashbacks."

One of the airmen who was tripping said during a bad acid trip, "I'm dying! ... When is this going to end?" Another talked about how much he enjoyed the drug, saying, "Minutes felt like hours, colors seemed more vibrant and clear."

It wasn't just a random guy dropping acid. This was a full-blown drug ring.

Disciplinary action was taken against 14 airmen. Two accused airmen were acquitted and 3 others were not charged. Others served time in jail.

Rep. Al Green to President Trump One More Racial Slur & I'm Coming For You!!!

5/24/2018 7:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump has officially been put on notice by a Democratic lawmaker hell-bent on impeaching 45 ... and it's got nothing to do with the Russians.

We got Congressman Al Green at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday and wanted him to clarify the statements he made last week ... saying there's a likelihood impeachment articles would be filed if Democrats regain control of both branches in Congress.

Green's adamant Trump's committed impeachable offenses, but his beef has nothing to do with Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Russians meddled in the 2016 elections. Green argues there's bigotry emanating from the presidency, and he's out to put an end to Trump's act.

Donald Trump Players Who Don't Stand Don't Belong In America!

5/24/2018 5:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump fully supports the new NFL policy on the national anthem -- he says players who don't stand should maybe "not be in the country."

The President spoke with "FOX & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade -- saying, "You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing. You shouldn't be there."

He added. "Maybe you shouldn't be in the country."

There's one part of the new policy Trump didn't like -- the option players have to stay in the locker room.

"I don't think people should be staying in locker rooms. But still I think it's good."

Of course, Trump has been railing for a while against players who demonstrate during the anthem -- and wanted NFL owners to fire Colin Kaepernick for starting the movement

By the way, Donald Trump has bragged how much he opposed the Vietnam War -- the method of protest back then was burning the flag. 

Tomi Lahren No Charges for Water Thrower

5/24/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who threw a glass of water at Tomi Lahren will not face criminal charges, and she actually has Tomi to thank for that ... partly.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the act of tossing water at Tomi is not harmful enough for cops to bring charges or open an investigation on their own. We're told Tomi herself -- or her mom, who was also hit with water -- would need to file a police report.

Sources close to Tomi tell us that's not going to happen ... so no charges will be coming.

As we reported ... the conservative Fox News contributor was having brunch with her mother at a Minneapolis bar last weekend when a woman chucked the water at her unprovoked.

The incident led President Trump to tweet out vocal support for Tomi, saying everybody is with her.

We're guessing this doesn't apply to the water thrower ... even if Lahren is letting her off the hook.

Stormy Daniels Eat Your Heart Out, Trump ... I Got a Key to WeHo!!!

5/23/2018 5:19 PM PDT

'Stormy Daniels Day' is official in West Hollywood -- the mayor just declared it, the porn star thanked the crowd after receiving a key to the city ... and yes, this is real news.

Stormy was honored in front of Chi Chi La Rue's Wednesday by Mayor John J. Duran and Mayor Pro Tem John D'Amico -- who peppered in a "joke" before presenting her with the key.

Daniels then gave a quick thank you speech and praised the community for its principles of treating everyone with fairness and dignity ... and standing up to bullies.

Clearly, that part was meant to tweak President Trump -- something Stormy has plenty of experience doing. Allegedly.

Malcolm Jenkins Rips NFL Anthem Policy 'Won't Let It Silence Me'

5/23/2018 2:32 PM PDT
Breaking News

Malcolm Jenkins says he will not let the NFL's new national anthem policy "silence me or stop me from fighting" ... saying the owners are "[thwarting] the players' constitutional rights."

The Philadelphia Eagles star never took a knee during the anthem -- but did raise his fist -- and has been very outspoken about players like Colin Kaepernick having the right to protest if they so choose. 

So, when the NFL announced the new anthem policy on Wednesday -- requiring players on the field to stand -- Jenkins sounded off. 

"What NFL owners did today was thwart the players' constitutional rights to express themselves and use our platform to draw attention to social injustices like racial inequality in our country," Jenkins says.

"Everyone loses when voices get stifled."

"While I disagree with this decision, I will not let it silence me or stop me from fighting."

"The national conversation around race in America that NFL players forced over the past 2 years will persist as we continue to use our voices, our time and our money to create a more fair and just criminal justice system, end police brutality and foster better educational and economic opportunities for communities of color and those struggling in this country."

"For me, this has never been about taking a knee, raising a fist or anyone's patriotism but doing what we can to effect real change for real people. #thefightcontinues."

Cynthia Nixon Crushed by Cuomo ... Loses Party Endorsement

5/23/2018 1:43 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cynthia Nixon suffered a landslide defeat in her bid to become Governor of New York, but she's vowing it ain't over yet.

NY state's Democratic convention kicked off Wednesday, and sitting Gov. Andrew Cuomo got more than 95% of the delegate votes to secure the party's endorsement for a third term. The former "Sex and the City" star came up woefully short of securing the 25% she needed just to guarantee her a spot on September's primary ballot.

Cynthia -- who announced her candidacy back in March -- won less than 5% of the delegates. It'll be an uphill battle, but she says plan B is to get thousands of signatures on a petition to get on the ballot.

Mike Pence & Trump Celebrate NFL's New Anthem Policy ... 'Winning'

5/23/2018 11:07 AM PDT
Breaking News

Mike Pence is declaring victory over the NFL's new policy requiring players on the field to stand for the national anthem ... tweeting out, "#Winning."

Funny ... Pence tweeted out an article on the new policy from -- of all places -- CNN, which his boss has repeatedly trashed as "fake news." 

Also, Donald Trump retweeted Pence. 

But, this news is very real ... the NFL owners and commish have announced a new policy that says players don't HAVE to come out on the field for the anthem, but if they do ... they must stand. 

A team can be fined by the league if players do not follow the new rule. 

Players who don't want to stand are allowed to stay in the locker room for the anthem. 

The policy is already being ripped apart from critics who see the rule as a violation of players' rights. 

President Trump Can't Hide from Haters on Twitter ... It's Unconstitutional!!

5/23/2018 10:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump's taking a big ole 'L' in court and on Twitter, and it's a victory -- of sorts -- for the likes of Chrissy Teigen and Rosie O'Donnell.

A federal judge ruled on Wednesday it's unconstitutional for the Prez to block anyone on the social media platform just because they disagree with him or his policies. The judge said that because he's a government official, Trump can't censor opposing views. 

POTUS has famously blocked Chrissy, Rosie, Stephen King and, for some reason (fear of vampires?), author Anne Rice -- not to mention many non-famous tweeters.

Anyway, the judge said it doesn't matter that Trump started his Twitter account before he was in the White House -- fact is, he's there now, and he works for the American people.

Even the ones who strongly disagree with or troll him on the Internet.

Donald Trump Defense in 'Apprentice' Sexual Assault Case She Really is a Liar

5/23/2018 6:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump has a simple defense in the lawsuit filed against him by former 'Apprentice' contestant Summer Zervos ... she's a liar and truth is a defense.

Zervos sued Trump for defamation after he said she was making up the story he allegedly sexually assaulted her during a 2007 business meeting at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Zervos couldn't sue for sexual assault because of the statute of limitations, but after he said her case was "totally made up nonsense," she sued him for defamation calling him a "sexual predator."

Trump just filed an answer to her claim, denying the sexual assault allegation, adding he has an ironclad defense ... truth. 

Donald Trump Everybody Loves Tomi Lahren!

5/23/2018 6:35 AM PDT

Donald Trump showed Tomi Lahren some serious love after someone threw a glass of water at Tomi and her mom.

Trump tweeted, "Everybody is with Tomi Lahren, a truly outstanding and respected young woman!"

The conservative FOX News contributor was in Minneapolis this week with her mom over the weekend when a woman chucked the water at her ... unprovoked.

Trump may be over his skis by saying "everybody" is with Tomi. Lots of people have problems with some of her views ... comparing Black Lives Matters protesters to the KKK, firing shots at Beyonce for her Super Bowl performance, and calling Joe Kennedy III a "little limp dick."

If, however, Trump is limiting his comment to the water-throwing incident, then maybe most people agree.

Ex-Prez Vicente Fox Forget Netflix Money Grab, Obama ... The World Needs You!!!

5/23/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Barack and Michelle Obama are making a huge mistake with their Netflix deal ... according to Vicente Fox, who says they should focus on helping people, instead of making money.

We got the ex-Mexican Prez Tuesday in D.C. and asked him about the Obamas locking up a production deal to make films, series and documentaries for Netflix. He's not on board.

In fact, he fully challenged the former first couple.

Fox says their jump into entertainment comes at the worst time, because their leadership's desperately needed in other arenas.

Vicente's no fan of President Trump, and doesn't call him by name, but watch -- he urges Obama to help the Democrats win in November.

Translation: take down Trump's Republicans now ... make your showbiz bucks later.

The Royal Wedding might be over, but Stormy Daniels is getting royal treatment of her own from West Hollywood for her fight against Trump ... including receiving a key to the city.

The adult film star is being honored at Chi Chi La Rue's in WeHo Wednesday, May 23 -- which the city's proclaimed "Stormy Daniels Day" -- by Mayor John J. Duran and members of the City Council.

Stormy's set to get a city proclamation and key to the city in recognition for her leadership in the #RESIST movement, and for having "courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation."

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, adds ... "We should all thank Stormy for her courage and fortitude through this process!"

"Stormy Daniels Day" celebrations won't stop after her honor, though ... they'll just moves across the street to The Abbey later that night.
