    Instead of undergoing a full-scale rebuild, the Cleveland Cavaliers are expected to be more aggressive in building a competitive roster in the 2020 offseason. After acquiring Andre Drummond before the 2020 February NBA trade deadline, rumors are circulating that the Cavaliers will be going after another star who will be available on the trade market this fall.

Look, it's possible,' the comedian and political commentator said Friday on his HBO show 'Real Time With Bill Maher'.  This comes after newly-released court documents from Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Guiffre claim Clinton was spotted on the Caribbean island of Little Saint James some time after his presidency ended in 2001.  The former president has repeatedly denied ever visiting the island and maintains he knew nothing of the dead billionaire's years of abuse of young girls.  Bill Maher insisted 'it's possible' that 'horny guy' Bill Clinton was on pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's 'sex island' on...
    Citing Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, WrestlingNews.co reported that NXT star Ridge Holland is being praised as “the next big thing” by people within WWE.

    The Supreme Court has been remolded into an appendage of the Republican Party—as was the intent. When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in February of 2016, Senate Republicans discovered a heretofore unidentified, now-infamous caveat to President Barack Obama's constitutional powers: Black presidents aren't allowed to fill vacant Supreme Court seats during an election year. The Senate refused to even consider the nomination of Merrick Garland, who was put forward by Obama for the role; instead, the seat was simply left vacant for the duration of Obama's term. When Republican Trump was installed as president the next year, the Senate swiftly confirmed his own conservative nominee. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and fawning Trump golf partner Sen. Lindsey Graham, among...
