S*x Cult Leader Keith Raniere Sentenced To 120 Years Behind Bars

S*x cult leader Keith Raniere has been ordered to spend the next 120 years behind bars. A judge sentenced the 59-year old in a Brooklyn courtroom Tuesday, more than a year after he was convicted on several charges including s*x trafficking, forced labor and racketeering.

Prosectutors say he created NXIVM [[ NEX - ee - yum ]] based in Clifton Park, New York outside of Albany to gain power over women. Raniere and his attorneys deny the claim. The group operated ostensibly as a personal and professional developement training organization to empower women. Several of Raniere's victims were in court asking for him to receive a harsh sentence. Raniere spoke on his behalf, claiming his innocence but apologizing to those he hurt.


Dodgers Top Rays To Claim First World Series Since '88

The Dodgers are World Series champions for the first time in 32 years. Mookie Betts scored the go-ahead run in the sixth inning and later homered as the Dodgers beat the Rays 3-1 in Game Six of the Fall Classic in Arlington, Texas. Seven LA pitchers combined to allow just five hits and one run.

Victor Gonzalez got the win in relief and Julio Urias recorded the final seven outs for the save. Nick Anderson took the loss after Blake Snell was pulled in the sixth for Tampa Bay. Snell struck out nine over five-and-a-third innings of two-hit, one-run ball. Randy Arozarena homered in the first inning for the Rays, who fell for the second time in the Fall Classic.

Meanwhile in World Series 2020 COVID-19 news, Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner did not get to see the end of the team's World Series clinching win Tuesday. A post game broadcast announcement said Turner tested positive for COVID-19, leading to his removal from the game. Commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed the positive test in a post-game interview with FOX. Turner was replaced at third base by Edwin Rios and was not on the field for the post-game celebration.

California continues to burn. Two quick-moving blazes have forced more than 85-thousand people to evacuate in Orange County. Most were due to the Silverado Fire burning near Irvine.

Amy Coney Barrett Sworn In As Newest SCOTUS Justice

Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett says she'll be an independent voice on the high court. After being sworn in Monday by Justice Clarence Thomas, Barrett said judges must remain outside the sway of politics. She said Supreme Court Justices making political decisions would be a dereliction of duty. Just a week out from the presidential election, Barrett now fills the seat of the late liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The high court now has a 6-3 conservative majority.

President Trump calls it a momentous day for Americans and the Constitution. He predicts Barrett will have a great impact on the high court. Meanwhile, dueling protests were held at the Supreme Court with some yelling and holding signs that read "The Confederacy was defeated. Take Trump Down." Other demonstrators wore badges reading "Confirm Amy."

He said if elected President his first order of business would be straightening out the budget.


Snow To Slow Colorado Wildfires; Power Shut Down In CA

An early winter snow storm is expected to help curb the advance of two major wildfires in Colorado. The National Weather Service today says cold temperatures, an increase in humidity and accumulating snow will continue into the early hours on Monday. CNN reports that the Colorado Office of Emergency Management's Trevor Denny says the winter storm and snowfall could "dampen any fire spread." The Cameron Peak Fire and the East Troublesome Fire are the two biggest wildfires in Colorado state history.

In northern California, the extreme hot, dry and windy conditions that favor wildfires there are leading to power shut downs. Pacific Gas & Electric is set to turn off power to hundreds of thousands of users in northern California. The utility says Red Flag high winds and extremely low humidity are conditions that are just too dangerous. The power shut downs will begin in stages this morning at 10:00-a.m. Pacific time for PG&E clients in eight counties. Power will be turned back on gradually Monday and Tuesday.

UK Coronavirus Vaccine Study To Infect Health Volunteers With Virus

The British government is clearing the way for a coronavirus vaccine study that will infect volunteers with the virus. Young, healthy volunteers will be deliberately infected in a controlled setting and some will receive an experimental vaccine. Health experts who support so-called challenge trials like this one say they're more efficient and require far fewer volunteers. They say when all volunteers are exposed to the virus, researchers can delivery scientific data more quickly.

FCC Chief To Review Communications Act's Big Tech Relevance

The head of the Federal Communications Commission says he is going to take a look at the relevance of the Communications Act of 1996 when it comes to Big Tech companies. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai tweeted his intention Thursday saying he will "clarify ambiguities" in Section 230 of the Communications Act as petitioned by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Pai says, "Social media companies have a First Amendment right to free speech. But they do not have a First Amendment right to a special immunity denied to other media outlets, such as newspapers and broadcasters."

Pai states he will clarify Section 230 which was conceived in order to protect from liability internet information providers that function as platforms to facilitate the unfettered dissemination of content created by third parties. Some argue that Section 230's liability protections do not extend to internet based publishers. The claim is that Big Tech search and social media companies have grown from their beginnings as neutral platforms of information conveyance back in the 1990s to behave today as agenda driven publishers.

Fireworks Expected As Senators Grill SCOTUS Nominee Amy Coney Barrett

The court, which is likely to include Barrett, will take up a case challenging Obamacare a week after Election Day. The Trump administration has joined states seeking to have the health care law declared unconstitutional.


WHO Special Envoy Says COVID-19 Lockdowns Should Be Used Sparingly

A World Health Organization Special Envoy says authorities should use the COVID-19 lockdown orders sparingly. In an interview with the UK's Spectator News on Friday, Doctor David Nabarro said the WHO doesn't consider lockdowns as the main way to control the coronavirus.

He says the WHO recognizes that lockdowns can "buy time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance resources, protect exhausted healthcare workers." Nabarro is calling on world leaders to not use lockdowns as the main COVID-19 control mechanism. He says lockdowns "make poor people an awful lot poorer."


Barrett Confirmation Hearings Start In Senate Today

Friends, Family, Colleagues Remember Rock Guitarist Eddie Van Halen

Rock guitarist Eddie Van Halen is being remembered by his friends, family and colleagues. The rock legend died Tuesday at age 65 at St. John Hospital in Santa Monica, California after a long battle with cancer. News of his death is drawing immediate reaction from Hollywood. His ex-wife, actress Valerie Bertinelli tweeted a series of broken heart symbols.

Billy Idol tweeted out a collage of photos of himself and Van Halen with the caption "Rest in peace guitar legend. We will miss you." Rocker Gene Simmons tweeted "My heart is broken." The Kiss member went on to say "Eddie was not only a Guitar God, but a genuinely beautiful soul."

Eddie is well known for his innovative and ground-breaking style on the guitar, which propelled the band Van Halen to super-stardom. Along with his brother Alex on drums, singer David Lee Roth and bassist Michael Anthony, Van Halen rose to prominence in the late 1970s and was considered one of the top acts in the world. Eddie was born in Amsterdam and was raised in Southern California.

He and ex wife Valerie Bertinelli have a son together, Wolf, who is also a musician and has been active in Van Halen. Eddie had been in poor health for years and was a cancer survivor. He had been out of the public eye for some time, which led to widespread speculation about his health again and the status of the band. He was born in 1955.


Trump Plans To Participate In Next Debate

Earlier on Monday, President Trump returned to the White House to continue treatment for coronavirus. He spent three nights receiving therapeutic treatment for the virus at Walter Reed Medical Center. His doctors agreed he was improving enough to go home. They confirmed today he's on several drugs and says he's not out of the woods yet.

President Trump Gets Experimental Antibody Cocktail Tested At Stanford

President Trump is being treated for COVID-19 with an experimental antibody cocktail that's being tested at Stanford Medical Center. Doctor Yvonne Maldonado says Trump got a single eight-gram dose of the cocktail. It's the largest dose and so far has shown to be the most effective.

She says the President is at greater risk because of his age, weight and cholesterol. The drug he's being treated with is from a manufacturer called Regeneron, and because it's so new, scientists still don't know how long it will remain effective.


White House Physician Issues Update On Trump

The White House physician says they have started Remdesivir therapy with President Trump and he is "resting comfortably."

Trump made the trip to the military hospital on Friday and is expected to remain there for a few days. Friday night the President tweeted things were going well for him.

NBC News Radio -- specifically you, Cameron Fairchild: I'm putting you on notice for your repeated use of the word "Democrat" in the newscasts this am. I am a "Democrat" and a "Democratic" voter. The first is a noun, the latter a modifier. When referring to the party, the correct word is "Democratic" (modifies the noun party) not "Democrat party". Quit echoing right wing nut jobs in your reporting. We see you...
