Although Facebook continues to keep me locked out of my account and has forced my hand to contact my lawyer later this morning, we will continue to publish news throughout the day as we always do. My trusted writers all have access to my FB account, and they will publish the stories you need to know. But you should go directly to DMLNews.com throughout the day and bypass the social media giant.
It is imperative that you get the DML APP if you want to remain in constant touch with us. I don’t know where this will end between Facebook and myself, but I have grown tired of the battle. It’s time to stand up and be treated fairly as a customer, and I plan to do so.
As for “The Truth” later today at 11 a.m., I will be with one of my kids who still has access and will have them do a LIVE streaming. I will take over, of course.

The letter comes on the eve of Sessions’ testimony before the same committee, scheduled for Tuesday. READ MORE

4) Actor Tom Sizemore was removed from the set of “Born Killers” for allegedly violating an 11-year-old girl during a photo shoot... Tom Sizemore was removed from the set of “Born Killers” for allegedly violating an 11-year-old girl, according to his former cast and crew.
Sizemore, the star of gritty 90s movies like “Saving Private Ryan,” “Black Hawk Down,” and “Heat,” was accused of sexually assaulting the young girl during a photo shoot towards the end of filming in 2003, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.
The girl, who played a minor role in the movie, which was a separate film from “Natural Born Killers,” in which Sizemore also starred, was sitting on Sizemore’s lap for the picture when the actor is alleged to have either rubbed his finger against the girl’s vagina or inserted it inside. READ MORE
5) Adelson, Bannon have reportedly broken ties over GOP direction… Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas billionaire and GOP megadonor, has reportedly broken ties with Stephen Bannon over the former White House chief strategist’s campaign of challenging Republican incumbents in 2018.
Bannon pledged to oust Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., from his leadership role while Adelson is “supporting Mitch McConnell 100 percent,” Andy Abboud, a spokesman for Adelson, told Politico.
