Hamlin wins Kansas NASCAR race, final eight set

Denny Hamlin was surrounded by Joe Gibbs Racing teammates at the front on the final restart, and that put Chase Elliott in the most difficult and precarious of situations. Somehow, he figured, he needed to find a way to beat them all to advance in NASCAR’s playoffs. It turned out second place was good enough.

Hamlin roared away with a push from behind from teammate Kyle Busch on the second shot at a green-white-checkered finish, and Elliott was unable to chase him down. But deep in the field, Brad Keselowski was going backward, and the spots he lost in the elimination race at Kansas Speedway were enough to send Elliott through in the final cut-off spot to the round of eight.

Hamlin won the race. Elliott felt almost as if he did.

“You have to stay fighting in these things, especially with the late-race restarts,” he said. “Just excited we get to fight another race. Back up against the wall, to come out here and battle for the win, that’s what you have to do when you’re in the position we were in.”

In a bit of irony, it was Keselowski who helped bring out the caution in the first overtime when he got into Daniel Suarez and triggered a wreck that collected teammate Joey Logano. The field was nearing the start-finish line but the caution light came on before the leader took the white flag.

If Hamlin had crossed a split-second quicker, the race would have been over and Keselowski safe.

“I pushed as hard as I knew how and didn’t quite do good enough on the last restart and that was it,” Keselowski said. “We clawed as hard as we could and there were times it looked like we were going to be fine and times it didn’t. In the end it didn’t work out.”

Kyle Busch ultimately finished third, followed by Kurt Busch and William Byron. But the key was Keselowski, who dropped from 13th to 19th on the final restart and out of the next round of the playoffs.

He ended up three points — equal to three positions on the track — below the cutoff line.

Byron was the next driver eliminated despite a strong run at Kansas, where he would have needed a win to advance. Alex Bowman and home-state hero Clint Bowyer also were eliminated.

“I did think we were OK,” Keselowski said, “but obviously we weren’t.”

The win was the fifth this season for Hamlin, who already was in good shape to advance but picked up valuable playoff points with the win. He’d finished in the top five at Kansas twice in the past couple years, but the trip to victory lane was the first for his Joe Gibbs Racing team since 2012.

“This was a tough track for us. We didn’t run very good here in the spring,” said his crew chief, Chris Gabehart. “We got a few key adjustments that turned us into a dominant car.”

The frenzied push to the finish Sunday began when Blaney scraped the wall with 14 to go, causing his tire to go down and a caution flag to fly. Elliott was three points behind Keselowski at that point, but the savior of Hendrick Motorsports’ playoff hopes made a big move on the restart to climb to fourth place, and that put the pressure right back on Keselowski to make up ground.

Elliott was still in good shape until another caution flew, jumbling the front of the pack and giving Keselowski a chance. He made a quick stop and picked up three spots on pit road, putting Elliott back in a situation where it appeared he would need a victory to advance.

“I was under the impression,” he said.

The entire field got through the first playoff restart cleanly, but Keselowski ran out of room deep in the pack and nudged Suarez, sending him into the wall. Logano also was heavily damaged in the wreck, throwing his own playoff hopes into question as another OT approached.

Hamlin got a good jump on the restart, and Elliott dived low and got in line. He immediately moved forward into second place while Keselowski began hemorrhaging positions, and the change that was made in the final two laps was enough to send Elliott into the next round.

“If you ever get to Homestead, you’re going to have to fight for a win,” he said. “Proud of the effort. Learned a lot. To be able to come out here and, like I said, in our minds have to win, come and fight for one, to finish second, I think is step in the right direction for us.”

OTHER PLAYOFF DRIVERS

Bowyer had a strong finish in eighth, but the playoff contender was a non-factor most of the day despite needing a win to advance. Kevin Harvick started 40th after inspection issues and never making it on the track to qualify, but he worked his way through the field to finish ninth.

“That was not a very good weekend from top to bottom,” Harvick said. “I just didn’t have a very good car and didn’t have a very good day on pit road. Nothing went right all weekend. It was definitely one of the worst weekends we have had in a while.”

ALL THE REST

Among non-playoff drivers, Erik Jones was among his three Gibbs playoff teammates in contention for the win before finishing seventh. Jimmie Johnson rallied from a slow start to finish 10th.

UP NEXT

Keselowski won the spring race at Martinsville, though that probably doesn’t make him feel much better returning now that he’s outside the playoffs. Logano edged Hamlin in the playoff race a year ago.

Pennsylvania man arrested in 2 murders after campground fight

Two men were shot and killed early Saturday morning at a Pennsylvania campground after attempting to intervene in a domestic dispute between another man and his girlfriend, according to officials.

The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release the incident happened around 2 a.m. Saturday at the Homestead Family Campgrounds in West Rockhill Township, located about 20 miles south of Allentown.

The victims and the suspect were among a group of 16 friends and relatives on an annual camping trip taking place this weekend at the campground.

NEW ARREST FOR CALIFORNIA WOMAN WHO LIVESTREAMED DRUNKEN DRIVING CRASH THAT KILLED SISTER

Prosecutors said that 40-year-old Miles K. Jones of Philadelphia fatally shot Eric Braxton, 41, and Arthur Hill, 46, also of Philadelphia, after the pair intervened in an argument between Jones and his girlfriend.

Miles K. Jones, 40, of Philadelphia was charged with criminal homicide, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person in connection to the shooting.

Early in the morning, an argument had erupted between Jones and his girlfriend, and the woman told Jones to leave the tent they were sharing, according to prosecutors. That argument then escalated into Jones flipping the tent before the victims came to the woman’s assistance, officials said in a news release.

“He returned about 15 minutes later with a loaded 9-mm. handgun and he shot both victims,” Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said at a news conference.

Jones was charged with criminal homicide, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person and was arraigned on Saturday afternoon. The 40-year-old is currently being held without bail at the Bucks County Correctional Facility and is scheduled to have his next court appearance on Oct. 31.

The shooting remains under investigation by Bucks County detectives, in addition to the Pennridge Regional Police Department and Central Bucks Special Response Team Crime Scene Unit.

27 Maya ritual sites discovered on online map by eagle-eyed archaeologist

An eagle-eyed archaeologist has used a freely available online map to locate 27  Maya ceremonial sites in Mexico.

Takeshi Inomata, a professor of archaeology at the University of Arizona, made the discovery using a LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) map he found online last year, according to the New York Times. LiDAR technology harnesses a laser to measure distances to the Earth’s surface and can prove extremely valuable to study what is hidden in areas with thick vegetation.

The 2011 map, which covers 4,400 square miles of the Mexican states of Tabasco and Chiapas, was published by Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography, the Times reported.

‘FIRST OF ITS KIND’ ANCIENT MAYA TOOL DISCOVERED IN LAGOON

Inomata told Fox News that the discovery followed his research at the site of Ceibal in Guatemala, where a ceremonial complex dating back to 1000 to 900 B.C. was found. “We then went to this area (Tabasco) thinking that there may be similar ceremonial complexes of this period,” he explained, via email. “It was great to see that there [are] more sites of this type than we expected. It is also remarkable that they had very standardized rectangular formations.”

Although visible on LiDAR maps, many sites, such as one dubbed “La Carmelita” are difficult to find in ground-based surveys, according to the Times.

The discovery of the 27 lost Maya ritual sites sheds new light on the ancient culture. “This is the period when people were just starting to use ceramics and adopting a sedentary way of life,” he explained. “The presence of these formal ceremonial complex in this early period indicates that certain rituals and religious ideas spread over a wide area as people accepted new ways of life.”
INCREDIBLE MAYA DISCOVERY: ANCIENT KING’S MASK UNCOVERED IN MEXICO

The Mexican Institute of Anthropology and History also participated in the project.

There have been a number of fascinating Maya discoveries across central America in recent years.

Experts recently discovered a unique ancient tool that was used by Maya salt workers more than 1,000 years ago. Fashioned from the mineral jadeite, the chisel-style implement was found at the site of Ek Way Nal, a Maya salt works in southern Belize that is now submerged in a saltwater lagoon.

MYSTERIOUS LOST MAYA CITIES DISCOVERED IN GUATEMALAN JUNGLE

Last year an ancient mask depicting a 7th-century Maya king was discovered in southern Mexico.

Also in 2018, archaeologists harnessed sophisticated technology to reveal lost cities and thousands of ancient structures deep in the Guatemalan jungle, confirming that the Maya civilization was much larger than previously thought.

LiveScience reports that hundreds of Maya artifacts that may have been used in ritual animal sacrifices have also been discovered at the bottom of a Guatemalan lake.

From its heart in what is now Guatemala, the Maya empire reached the peak of its power in the sixth century A.D., according to History.com, although most of the civilization’s cities were abandoned around 900 A.D.

Cabot Phillips: Dems don’t want Biden in 2020 and many can’t name his accomplishments

Democrats don’t want an establishment candidate in 2020 like former Vice President Joe Biden, editor-in-chief of Campus Reform Cabot Phillips said Friday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with host Steve Doocy, Phillips said that Democrats seemingly don’t even know what Biden’s accomplishments are.

Biden claimed on the stage of the fourth presidential debate on Tuesday that he was the only candidate who had gotten anything really big done.

“I think this is what happens when you’re never asked the ‘why.’ I think so many Democrat voters, they’re never asked the why of having to explain: “Why do you support who you do? What are the accomplishments you could point to?” Phillips told Doocy.

BIDEN RAMPS UP ATTACKS ON WARREN, DISMISSES HER AS A FELLOW FRONT-RUNNER

He added: “If you’re a Donald Trump supporter, every single time you tell someone that, it’s, “Why? Why do you?”

“So, you’re always having to arm yourself in knowing the accomplishments of who you like and I think when you’re not asked that why question, you see these kinds of responses,” said Phillips.

In August, Phillips took to the streets to ask liberal supporters what they thought of Biden’s track record.

“I’ll be honest with you, I’m drawing a blank on what he accomplished,” a man said.

One woman just told Phillips: “No.”

A younger man in a Michigan State shirt admitted, “I don’t know if I have an answer for that.”

“To these people’s credit, I don’t know if there’s exactly a long laundry list of accomplishments people can point to for Joe Biden beyond saying: ‘Well, he’s been in D.C. for 30, 40 years. He was vice president,'” he noted.

Phillips told Doocy Biden’s platform so far based on his long career in politics is not attractive to this electorate.

“I’ve talked to thousands of voters in the last two years with leadership institutes…so many of them continually say, ‘I want someone [who is] going to shake it up,'” he said.

“I think the Democrat electorate in 2020 is similar to what Republicans had in ’16. They don’t want an establishment candidate,” Phillips predicted.

“So, every time Joe Biden goes up and says, ‘I’ve been in D.C. Here’s what I’ve done.’ I think that almost drives them further from him because they don’t want an establishment candidate this go-around.”

Helen Hunt hospitalized after SUV flips in car accident: reports

Helen Hunt is recovering Thursday after a vehicle she was riding reportedly flipped over during a car accident in California.

Hunt, 56, was hospitalized after the accident, which happened Wednesday in the Mid-City neighborhood of Los Angeles, TMZ reported. The “Mad About You” star was riding in the back of an SUV when another car reportedly clipped hers.

Video of the accident published by TMZ appears to show the SUV driving through an intersection when suddenly it’s T-boned by a white car. Hunt’s SUV flips over on its left side.

The actress was reportedly taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in stable condition. She left several hours later and suffered no major injuries, her rep told the news outlet.

A rep for Hunt did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

Cuba Gooding Jr. compared to Joe Biden by his lawyer in alleged groping case

Cuba Gooding Jr.’s attorney tried to defend the actor from groping allegations Tuesday — by comparing the charges to complaints leveled at Joe Biden for getting too handsy with a female politician.

“This indictment constitutes a distorted overreaction pandering to the current hypersensitive climate where innocent common-place gestures are now misperceived and mischaracterized as offensive as exemplified by the incredible condemnation of former Vice President Joseph Biden, who innocently touched a woman’s shoulder,” said defense lawyer Mark Jay Heller in Manhattan Supreme Court.

CUBA GOODING JR. PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO NEW SEXUAL MISCONDUCT CHARGES, COULD FACE UP TO 12 ACCUSERS

Heller gave the eyebrow-raising defense after the Oscar-winning actor was arraigned on four misdemeanor counts of sex abuse and forcible touching. He’s accused of squeezing a woman’s breast June 9 at a Midtown hotel bar and pinching another woman’s butt Oct. 24, 2018, at lower Manhattan nightclub TAO.

Police are investigating Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. for allegedly touching a woman inappropriately at a New York City nightclub in June 2019.

Biden landed in hot water in March after former Nevada politician Lucy Flores penned an op-ed for New York magazine, saying the former vice president and current presidential candidate made her feel “gross” when he grabbed her by the shoulders from behind and kissed her hair during a Las Vegas campaign event.

CUBA GOODING JR. FACING NEW CHARGE AS TRIAL IS DELAYED AGAIN

Three other women came forward and said that Biden had touched them inappropriately — including by giving one an Eskimo kiss and placing his hand on another’s thigh. Biden, however, was never accused of groping a woman’s breast or buttocks.

Heller called the Manhattan DA’s case against Gooding “incredibly weak.” Assistant DA Jenna Long said at the hearing that prosecutors would try to introduce evidence at trial from 12 other accusers to prove a pattern of abuse — although he is not charged for those alleged crimes.

A judge will ultimately decide whether the 12 additional accusers’ claims will be admitted at trial.

Hunter Biden breaks silence on Ukraine business dealings, claims he did ‘nothing wrong at all’

Hunter Biden broke his silence Tuesday in his first televised interview since his overseas business dealings came under scrutiny, maintaining he did nothing improper while he served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

However, the 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that accepting the lucrative position was, in retrospect, “poor judgment.”

“I know I did nothing wrong at all. Was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in many ways? Yeah,” he said in an exclusive sit-down with ABC’s Amy Robach at his Los Angeles home.

PROOF OF LINKS: PHOTOGRAPH SHOWS JOE, HUNTER BIDEN GOLFING WITH UKRAINE GAS EXEC

Biden said he did not discuss the Burisma Holdings board seat with his father, except for one “brief exchange” that was previously reported.

A photo obtained by Fox News last month showed Joe Biden and Hunter golfing in the Hamptons with Devon Archer, who served on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings with Hunter. Joe Biden had told Fox News that he never discussed his son’s foreign business dealings with him.

“I don’t regret being on the board. What I regret is not taking into account that there would be a Rudy Giuliani and a President of the United States that would be listening to this ridiculous conspiracy idea,” he said, claiming that the allegations of impropriety have been “debunked by everyone.”

Robach asked Biden if he would have gotten the board seat if he had a different last name.

“I don’t know, probably not,” he responded, explaining he left the board in April when the five-year term ended.

HUNTER MAY HAVE MADE ‘MILLIONS’ IN UKRAINE, NEWLY REVEALED DOCS SUGGEST

He said he made the decision so that his father would not have the “distraction” to deal with during his campaign. President Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, have urged Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden for pressuring the country to fire a top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin.

At the time, Shokin was investigating Burisma Holdings — where Hunter had a lucrative role on the board despite limited relevant expertise. Critics have alleged Hunter Biden, in effect, might have been selling access to his father, who had pushed Ukraine to increase its natural gas production.

The interview comes ahead of Joe Biden’s appearance at a Democratic debate Tuesday night in Ohio, while more of Hunter’s financial past is also being subject to scrutiny.

Although Trump repeatedly has hammered Hunter Biden’s ties to China and Ukraine, the latest cloud of suspicion came as Republicans pointed to resurfaced 2008 reports in The New York Times and The American Spectator. The articles, written as Barack Obama and John McCain vied for the White House, found that Hunter Biden received consulting fees from the financial services company MBNA from 2001 to 2005 — while his father, then a senator, was pushing successfully for legislation that would make it harder for consumers to file for bankruptcy protection.

The precise amount of the payments was unclear, but a company official once said Hunter Biden was receiving at least a $100,000 per year retainer, the Times reported. Hunter Biden previously had been an executive at MBNA beginning in 1996, but the consulting fees came years after his departure from the company as a full-time employee.

Aides to then-presidential candidate Barack Obama at the time denied that any lobbying had occurred, and insisted the payments were proper.

Dan Bongino: Most of media refuses to call out Adam Schiff’s false claims

Most of the mainstream media refuses to call out House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., over his false claims about his contact with the whistleblower who reported President Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader, Fox News contributor Dan Bongino argued Monday.

Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, pointed out on “Fox & Friends” that Schiff was rated “four Pinocchios” by The Washington Post for claiming he did not have advanced knowledge of the whistleblower’s concerns about the phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president.

“The story Adam Schiff told is simply not accurate. There was no quid pro quo, … his staff did meet with people associated with the whistleblower,” said Bongino, labeling Schiff as “brave about his dishonesty.”

“He goes out and speaks to the nation about evidence he doesn’t have, frequently.”

JIM JORDAN: PELOSI DECIDED ON IMPEACHMENT BEFORE SHE EVEN READ THE UKRAINE TRANSCRIPT

Schiff admitted on Sunday in a CBS interview that he should have been clearer about his contact with the whistleblower.

Fox News reported earlier this month that the intelligence community whistleblower did not disclose contact with Schiff’s staff to the intelligence committee inspector general (ICIG).

The sources said ICIG Michael Atkinson told lawmakers in a closed session that the whistleblower did not disclose the contact with the California Democrat’s committee and that Atkinson didn’t investigate that contact as he had no knowledge of it.

Sources also told Fox News that Atkinson revealed that the whistleblower volunteered he or she was a registered Democrat and that they had a prior working relationship with a prominent Democratic politician.

Bongino said overall, “very few” media outlets have been questioning Schiff’s story, claiming members of the White House national security staff have left to work with Schiff on the Intelligence Committee.

“Nothing illegal, but I’m suggesting it’s unusual, no? Why would you do that? These people still have professional contacts from where the leak we know emanated from, the National Security Council,” said Bongino.

Coach Marv Levy: NFL honors World War II ‘Greatest Generation’ – Each team has its own connection to war

I recently returned to the great city of Buffalo, New York, for the annual Buffalo Bills Legends Weekend. It’s a special time for me, with the organization bringing back many former players and coaches I admire and respect.

They are the foundation of the NFL team’s history and give it great pride, along with the Bills’ diehard and steadfast fans.

The league is currently commemorating its centennial season. The commemoration intends “to bring generations of football fans, players, communities, and all 32 clubs together for a unique line-up of programming andactivities.”

OLDEST LIVING AMERICAN WWII VETERAN CELEBRATES 110TH BIRTHDAY

One of those activities I would like all NFL clubs to embrace this season is honoring the “Greatest Generation.”

Two players were awarded the Medal of Honor for their World War II service: Jack Lummus of the New York Giants, who was killed in action; and Maurice Britt of the Detroit Lions.

World War II claimed the lives of 21 active or former NFL players in all, a former head coach and a team executive. While those are the ultimate sacrifices, each team has a unique story or connection to the war.

It’s not too much to ask for the clubs to dedicate a little extra time or resources to educate our youth about the sacrifices made by all Americans during World War II.

AOC gets choked up at climate forum: ‘My dreams of motherhood are now bittersweet’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., got emotional on Friday as she discussed how climate change affected her own personal outlook on life.

“I speak to you not as an elected official or a public figure, but I speak to you as a human being,” the freshman congresswoman told a climate summit in Copenhagen. “A woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet, because of what I know about our children’s future,” she added, apparently choking back tears.

She was giving her keynote address at the C40 World Mayors Summit which recently approved a global version of her “Green New Deal.”

Ocasio-Cortez went on to decry the impacts of climate change and indicating that Puerto Ricans died because they lived “under colonial rule.”

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ’S LATEST CLIMATE FIX — NO CHILDREN FOR YOU

“I speak to you as daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer. Just two years ago one of the deadliest disasters in the United States struck in the form of Hurricane Maria,” she said.

“The climate change-powered storm killed over 3,000 Puerto Ricans, American citizens — my own grandfather died in the aftermath — all because they were living under colonial rule, which contributed to the dire conditions and lack of recovery.”

She added that it wasn’t a “coincidence” that Hurricane Dorian had similar impacts on the Bahamas. “As many have noticed in an — noted in an awful turn the climate crisis has passed is first impacting those who have not only contributed to our emissions the least but have already suffered greatly in the global history of inequality, colonization, and imperialism stacking one injustice upon another,” she said.

The New York congresswoman traveled to Copenhagen for a meeting with the C40, a group of 94 mayors led by Los Angeles’ Mayor Eric Garcetti — who was just announced as the group’s new chair. There, several U.S. mayors supported the “Global Green New Deal.”

The plan aims to halve carbon emissions by 2030 through cleaner alternatives and the “strictest possible building codes.” It also seeks to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement’s goal of keeping warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius.
