'Tonight Sarah Palin returned to the restaurant to apologize for the fracas around her previous visit,' he told DailyMail.com. 'In accordance to the vaccine mandate and to protect our staff, we seated her outdoors. 'We are a restaurant open to the public, and we treat civilians the same.'

Putin moves his elite paratroopers to Ukrainian border in Belarus in yet ANOTHER troop build-up amid invasion fears - while US sends Kiev 300 lethal Javelin anti-tank weapons and warns Russia is planning to go in by mid-February
A train with the Russian troops and their equipment (inset bottom centre) was spotted moving west towards the potential war zone and appears to be the 217th Guards Parachute Regiment of the 98th Airborne Division. Meanwhile, a plane loaded with 300 Javelin anti-tank missiles landed in Kiev overnight (top), the latest part of a $200million US military aid shipment designed to bring death and destruction to Vladimir Putin's forces if he decides to invade (Putin bottom right). Javelins are American-made infrared missiles (bottom right) that lock on to their targets before rising high into the air and slamming down, making them particularly deadly against tanks because their armour is thinnest on the top.
Brazen thieves are strolling out of stores in NYC's wealthy Upper East Side with bags full of stolen goods: One Rite Aid is being forced to close after being targeted DAILY and small business owners fear they'll suffer the same fate
Brazen thieves have been hitting the same Upper East Side Rite Aid for months, forcing it to close - and now, numerous small businesses in the upscale Manhattan neighborhood, where residents say they are on high alert because of rising crime, are worried they will soon suffer the same fate after a string of thefts. Shelves are already bare in the Rite Aid store, located at the corner of 80th Street and 2nd Avenue because it will shut its doors for good on February 15, the manager told DailyMail.com, a day after a thief was caught on video boldly sauntering out with shopping bags full of stolen goods. The brazen incident in one of New York City's wealthiest neighborhoods was only captured on camera because actor and comedian Michael Rapaport had stopped by to shop at the store himself. He said it was 'pathetic' that brazen crime continues to spiral in the Big Apple because of soft-on-crime policies. 'These criminals know there are no ramifications. We have to put more of these mfers in jail,' he fumed to DailyMail.com. The Rite Aid's closure is just one of many in the city. On February 8, a Hell's Kitchen store which has been rife with robberies in recent months will close, and on the Upper West Side, another store which experienced daily thefts shut down in November. The chain announced last year that it was shutting down about 63 stores across the US in the next few years, citing cost-cutting measures - but workers say that the thefts are part of the reason for the closures as inventory dwindles.

Hochul - who is running for a full term after replacing sex pest ex-Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2021 - has said she'll be meeting Bragg for the first time on Friday. 'I know full well the powers that the governor has - I'll be having a conversation very shortly to convey, to let him tell me what his plans are and make sure that we're all in alignment.' Hochul has stopped short of demanding Bragg's removal from office, but added that she will 'be monitoring the situation very closely' to the New York Post Wednesday.

Prince Andrew's defiant 41-denial response to Virginia Roberts' sex abuse lawsuit puts him on a 'collision course with the palace' as he demands a JURY trial and says Ghislaine Maxwell was NOT his 'close friend'
Prince Andrew (pictured centre 2001) last night demanded a 'trial by jury' as he hit back at accusations of rape and sexual assault made by a Jeffrey Epstein 'sex slave'. In his official response to claims made against him by Virginia Roberts (pictured centre at age 17) five months ago, the Queen's son issued 41 denials, rejecting all allegations of wrongdoing - but said a further 40 times that he 'lacks sufficient information to admit or deny' other claims. Andrew denies he ever sexually abused Roberts and refuses to 'admit or deny' her assertions that she was a victim of Epstein. He even denies being a 'close friend' of Epstein's girlfriend and now convicted sex trafficker, Ghislaine Maxwell (pictured right. Andrew and Maxwell pictured together bottom left)
Biden WILL nominate first black woman to SCOTUS to replace judge Stephen Breyer, 83, this summer: Choices include judge who provoked Republicans with 'Presidents aren't Kings' ruling, and sister of Stacey Abrams
President Joe Biden will keep his campaign promise to name a black woman to the Supreme Court, the White House confirmed on Wednesday amid reports Justice Stephen Breyer will retire at the end of the current term. The current court term will end in June or early July. Biden pledged during the 2020 presidential campaign to name a black woman as justice. 'The president has stated and reiterated his commitment to nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that,' White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at her daily press briefing. The pick would be historic, marking the first time a black woman was named to the highest court in the land. Several names are in the mix, including federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who issued the 'presidents are not kings' ruling; Leondra Kruger, a justice on California's Supreme Court; federal Judge J. Michelle Childs of South Carolina who is a favorite of Rep. Jim Clyburn; and Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, serves on Georgia's district court and is the sister of the voting-rights advocate Stacey Abrams.

The father, who has also chosen to remain anonymous to avoid 'physical harm' any backlash could entail and has a 'medical background,' told Fox News that he believes there is no stopping Thomas from reaching the highest level.

He believes that other families don't speak out because think there's 'nothing they can do about it' but he wants to, on behalf of the swimmers and their aspirations.
Pregnant Miss America contestant's born-again Christian husband, 37, is shot dead in front of her and their two-year-old son as they spread the word of God in rough Alabama neighborhood: Boy, 17, is arrested for murder
The slain husband of a former Miss America contestant was gunned down in a rough part of Alabama while educating impoverished strangers about the powers of God, his friends and family say. Thomas Hand Jr., 37, was sharing information about Christianity in the Montgomery area on Saturday with his wife and toddler when a man - mumbling - walked up to him and shot him, his friends told DailyMail.com. His wife, former Miss Mississippi Christine Kozlowski Hand, confirmed the account in a brief interview with Dailymail.com, saying: 'What you said is true. It was a complete random act of violence.' Hand - a fitness buff and ex-competitive bodybuilder - discovered God in 2018 and soon became infatuated with Christianity. He and his wife made it a Saturday tradition to visit low-income areas in Alabama and share religious teachings. 'He tried to spread the word of God, and he's shot,' longtime friend Kevin Rayan told DailyMail.com. A 17-year-old was arrested in the Montgomery shooting and faces a charge of capital murder in the death of Thomas Hand Jr., 37, on Saturday afternoon, according to police, who later named the suspect as Jerimiah Walker of Montgomery.
MEGHAN MCCAIN: I finally got Covid and it was so horrible it made me doubt if America will ever recover from this pandemic. It WILL but not with moronic Biden in charge
MCCAIN: In isolation, I started ruminating as to whether the last days of American greatness were finally upon us, like so many pundits have been circulating over the past few years. No wonder there is a pandemic of depression, suicides and malaise. While it is not rational for me to think President Biden could stop a virus, however it is rational for me to believe he would help make the treatment, testing, and overall morale of the country better. Maybe this is the best that Biden and his administration thinks America has to offer or deserves, but I assure you there will be others out there who do not feel that way. And they will not let this country continue to be this sick - physically, emotionally, financially. We are Americans, we can do so much better than this and we owe it to ourselves and the generations ahead of us to do better. Biden may not believe in morning in America, but I sure as hell still do, just not under his failed leadership.

Woman who got pregnant by a RAPIST at age 17 reveals her devastation after learning that her husband of 17 years - who raised her child as his own - was bisexual and had been cheating on her with men for 14 YEARS
Sara Schulting Kranz, 48, said she was filled with 'anger, pain, loss, shame, and regret' after she found out that her husband was living a secret double life. She said that uncovering her spouse's shocking infidelity brought up the severe trauma that she had faced when she was raped as a teenager. Sara (pictured left in a recent image) - who is now a life coach and certified wilderness guide in Hermosa Beach, California - met a man at the age of 17, who raped her and got her pregnant. She decided to keep the baby, her first son, and one year later, she met her future husband, David Kranz (pictured top right with Sara and her son on their wedding day), at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 17 years into their marriage and two more sons later, David admitted that he was bisexual and that he had been 'betraying' her with men for 14 years.

Shane Burcaw, 29, and his wife Hannah, 26, opened up about being in an interabled marriage on StyleLikeU's What's Underneath: Couples series. He was born with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a neuromuscular disease that causes muscles to deteriorate over time, and is in a wheelchair.

The YouTubers, who document their lives on their 'Squirmy and Grubs' channel, said the validity of their relationship is constantly being questioned by strangers. Hannah explained they get comments from jealous 'straight men' who wrongly assume that Shane can't have sex with her and think she should be with them. Shane noted that sex for them doesn't 'look like what you see in the movies,' but he 'can totally do it' and is usually the one to initiate it.
Where are the original Charlie Brown cast members now? As fans mourn death of voice actor Peter Robbins after his suicide, FEMAIL reveals what has happened to the other stars of beloved TV special, 57 years on
More than five decades after the first Peanuts special hit TV screens, fans are mourning the tragic loss of Peter, who was the original voice of Charlie Brown. The actor's family confirmed on Tuesday night that he died by suicide last week at age 65. Peanuts was first created as a comic strip in 1950 by Charles M. Schulz, and characters Charlie, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Violet, and Snoopy captured the nation. The comic became so popular - earning 355 million readers by 1960 - that it inspired a TV special called A Charlie Brown Christmas, which came out in 1965. It's been 57 years since the first Peanuts special aired, and the cast has certainly come a long way since then.

Thief dubbed 'the snake burglar' who has stolen thousands from California businesses is filmed wriggling on floor of gold exchange to evade security alarms before making off with $50,000 in silver
A thief known for his unique approach - slithering into businesses to avoid motion-activated alarms - has been caught wriggling into a gold exchange and making off with $50,000 worth of silver. Surveillance footage shows the so-called 'snake burglar' crawling on the carpet of Crown Gold Exchange (inset) in Riverside, California, about 55 mi east of Los Angeles, sometime last week. The thief broke into a vacant storefront next door, used a hammer to break the drywall, and wriggled into Crown Gold Exchange, where he spent five minutes rummaging through the backroom, owner Cesar Meyer told KTLA. His approach is similar to that of a burglar who broke into at least six businesses in Riverside in recent months, police say. At Body Tan Salon and Spa, a man kicked in a side window at ground level and cut through sheet rock before sliding in and taking all the money from the register. California has been plagued by smash-and-grab looters and rising property crimes during the past year.

Julian Fellowes' new period drama, premiered in the US on Monday and on HBO and Virgin Atlantic in the UK last night, but failed to impress critics from The Guardian and New York Times, with the latter branding the series a 'dime-store Downton' that presented a 'muddled and slapdash portrait' and a tale that bordered on caricature. Meanwhile, the Guardian's Lucy Mangan compared it to a variant of the coronavirus and advised viewers to arm themselves with PPE.
A tale of two Australias: Millions hit the beach to celebrate national day while Indigenous protesters stage alternative 'Invasion Day' marches demanding the date be axed
Australia Day, held on the 26 January every year, is a controversial date in the country as it marks the anniversary of British colonisation of Australia, with Indigenous activists considering it as 'Invasion Day'. Millions of Australians hit the coast on Wednesday and enjoyed traditional BBQs and backyard cricket on the beaches. But scores of Indigenous rights activists took to the streets of the Australian capital Canberra and cities across the country and called for the national day to be shifted from January 26 - a date many Indigenous people mark with a massacre and mourning ceremonies. Argument rages over how history should remember a fleet of 11 British ships carrying a human cargo of convicts arriving at Port Jackson in present-day Sydney on January 26, 1788. For indigenous Australians, Australia Day marks the start of white colonisation and persecution, including massacres of their people.

It takes a village! Single mothers who couldn't afford family homes of their own buy a house TOGETHER where they now live with all five of their kids as 'platonic spouses'
Holly Harper, 41, from Washington, D.C. detailed how she bought a four-unit apartment building with her friend Herrin Hopper in an essay for Insider. After separating from her partner of 17 years in early 2018 and selling their family home, she knew she couldn't afford a duplex or condo in the area on her budget. In June 2020, Harper and Hopper bought a place together and offered the fourth unit to another single mother as a rent-to-own option. After a few months, the three mothers and their five kids were all living under the same roof with three dogs, two hamsters, and a gecko.
