Phoenix Open Streaker

Naked Breakdance Moves?!

… Hilarious Video

2/1/2018 8:38 AM PST

Exclusive Video

The streaker who busted onto the green at the Phoenix Open on Wednesday didn’t just run around — he TRIED really hard to pull off some naked breakdance moves … and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

The wannabe dancer is Adam Stalmach — a 24-year-old idiot who somehow snuck onto the 17th fairway during the Pro-Am in front of hundreds of people … and put on a naked show before cops rushed in and arrested him. 

Shocker … cops say he was probably wasted. 

He’s been charged with indecent exposure and two counts of disorderly conduct.

Also, he kept his socks on the entire time … so technically, not a full streaker???

Good luck with the hangover, bro …

Bypolls: Congress trounces BJP in Rajasthan, Mamata's TMC wins big in Bengal

no thumb


JAIPUR/KOLKATA: The Congress and the TMC on Thursday swept the bypolls to three Lok Sabha and two assembly seats in Rajasthan and West Bengal by impressive margins, dealing a huge blow to the BJP days ahead of assembly elections in three states.

The BJP came in for severe drubbing in Rajasthan where it is eyeing a second straight term, with Congress candidates thumping its nominees in two Lok Sabha and one assembly seats.

Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress+
quelled the BJP challenge in West Bengal with ease as its candidates won the Uluberia Lok Sabha and Noapara assembly seats, trouncing their nearest saffron party rivals.

After making a remarkable turnaround in its electoral fortunes in neighbouring Gujarat late last year, the Congress put up a muscular performance in Rajasthan where its candidates wrested Alwar and Ajmer Lok Sabha and Mandalgarh assembly seats from the BJP by impressive margins.

Karan Singh Yadav of the Congress trounced his nearest BJP rival Jaswant Yadav by a whopping 1,96,496 votes in Alwar, while the main opposition party’s nominee for Ajmer Raghu Sharma beat BJP’s Swaroop Lamba by an impressive margin of 84,414 votes, the state election office said.

The Congress’s Vivek Dhakad won the Mandalgarh assembly seat, defeating his nearest BJP rival Shakti Singh Hada by nearly 13,000 votes. Rebel Congress leader Gopal Malviya, who contested as an independent, failed to alter the outcome.

celebrations

The defeat for the BJP came days after the release of period film ‘Padmaavat’ which saw an upheaval of sorts in the state, with the influential Rajput community up in arms against its screening, claiming it distorted historical facts and projected queen Padmini of Mewar in poor light.

Though the BJP government stood solidly behind the Shree Rajput Karni Sena, which spearheaded the protest against the the film, to stall its release, the gesture did not pay off as the party lost the Ajmer seat that has sizeable population of Rajputs.

The recent incidents of vigilantism in the name of cow protection, including the lynching of a Muslim man Pehlu Khan in Alwar over allegations of cow smuggling, appeared to have consolidated the minority community electorate behind the Congress.

The BJP had won all the 25 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state in the 2014 general elections.

The party, which wrested power from the Congress in in Rajasthan in 2013, had 161 MLAs in the House of 200.

With today’s win, the Congress’s strength in the Lok Sabha has gone up to 48.

Buoyed by the results, a jubilant Congress president Rahul Gandhi hailed the party’s Rajasthan unit for its impressive show, calling the outcome a “rejection” of the BJP by the people.

“Well done Rajasthan Congress! Proud of each and every one of you. This is a rejection of the BJP by the people of Rajasthan. #RajasthanByPolls,” Gandhi tweeted.

The Congress’s electoral distress, however, continued in Mamata Banerjee’s citadel of West Bengal where it finished a poor fourth in both Uluberia Lok Sabha and Noapara assembly constituencies. Both its candidates lost their security deposits.

The BJP, which is seeking to position itself as the chief opposition party, increased its vote share in both seats, with its candidates finishing second. CPM candidates ranked third.

TMC candidate Sajda Ahmed trounced Anupam Mallick of BJP by over 4.74 lakh votes in Uluberia Lok Sabha seat in Howrah district.

She secured 7,67,219 votes as against 2,93,018 votes bagged by the BJP candidate.

Sajda is the wife of TMC MP Sultan Ahmed, whose death necessitated the bypoll.

The BJP’s vote share in Uluberia doubled since the 2014 general elections when its candidate had secured little over 1.37 lakh votes.

In Noapara assembly constituency in North 24 Parganas district, TMC candidate Sunil Singh humbled his BJP rival Sandip Banerjee by over 63,000 votes.

The bypoll in Noapara was necessitated following the death of sitting Congress MLA Madhusudan Ghose. The Congress had won the seat in the last polls but its candidate Gautam Bose could manage barely 10,523 votes.

Assembly elections in Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland are slated later this month.

The BJP, which has its governments in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, is seeking to make inroads into the three election- bound states.

Bart Scott: Jets Shouldn't Cut Robby Anderson After Nutty Arrest

Ex-Jets Star Bart Scott

Don’t Cut Robby Anderson

… Despite Nutty Arrest

2/1/2018 9:17 AM PST

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Jets star Bart Scott hopes his old squad doesn’t fire star WR Robby Anderson in the wake of his crazy arrest (where he allegedly threatened to bang a cop’s wife). Here’s why … 

1) “He’s too young”

2) “He’s too talented”

3) “His salary’s controllable” (i.e. “he’s cheap”)

You’d think Robby could get the ax after allegedly going 105 mph in a 45 zone and then telling the arresting officer he was going to find the dude’s wife and “f*ck her and nut in her eye.”

Of course, Bart says Anderson crossed the line (if the allegations are true) — but he shouldn’t lose his job over it. He lays out the case for us on camera. 

Important to note — doesn’t seem like Bart realizes Robby IS facing 3 felony charges … though he pled not guilty to all of ’em.

How French climber on Pakistan’s ‘killer mountain’ was forced to leave behind her friend to save her life

no thumb


A French mountaineer who was rescued in a dramatic nighttime operation on Pakistan’s “killer mountain” has told how she had to leave her weak and bleeding climbing partner and descend the peak alone in darkness.

Elisabeth Revol, speaking exclusively to AFP from a hospital in France’s Haute-Savoie region – where doctors are assessing whether she will require amputations due to frostbite in her hands and left foot – said rescuers urged her to leave behind Tomek (Tomasz) Mackiewicz, a Polish national.

She earlier described the decision as “terrible and painful”.

It was Revol’s fourth attempt, her third with Mackiewicz, to scale the 8,125-metre (26,660-foot) Nanga Parbat during the winter season, when they ran into trouble amid frigid temperatures and high winds.

An elite group of Polish climbers managed to reach Revol but were unable to get to Mackiewicz, who was stranded further up the mountain.

Revol, who weighed just 43 kilograms (95 pounds) following her ordeal, left France on December 15 and began her adventure with Mackiewicz on January 20.

A few days later, as they approached the summit, she says they “felt good”. By early evening they finally reached the peak – making Revol the first woman to scale the mountain in winter, without oxygen or sherpa.

But their joy was short-lived.

“Tomek told me ‘I can’t see anything any more,’” Revol recalled.

“He hadn’t used a mask because it was a bit hazy during the day and by nightfall he had ophthalmia (an inflammation of the eye). We hardly had a second at the top. We had to rush to get down.”

Mackiewicz clung to Revol’s shoulders and they began the long, difficult descent in darkness.

“At one point, he couldn’t breathe,” Revol said. “He took off the protection he had in front of his mouth and he began to freeze. His nose became white and then his hands, his feet.”

They huddled overnight in a crevasse, trying desperately to shelter from the biting wind.

But Mackiewicz no longer had the strength to continue the descent and by sunrise, his condition had deteriorated further.

Revol recalls that he had “blood streaming from his mouth”, a sign of oedema – a build-up of fluid in the body and the ultimate stage of acute mountain sickness, which can be fatal without urgent treatment.

The mountaineer alerted everyone she could that they needed help but certain messages were lost in transmission.

Eventually, instructions came through from her rescuers. “They told me, ‘If you go down to 6,000 metres, we can pick you up, and we can get Tomek at 7,200 metres.’”

She added: “It wasn’t a decision I made, it was imposed on me.”

To Mackiewicz, she remembers simply saying: “Listen, the helicopter will arrive late afternoon. I must go down, they’ll come to get you.”

Sending her GPS coordinates to rescuers and convincing herself that she would survive, she took nothing with her for the remainder of her journey – “not a tent, not a duvet, nothing”.

Revol had thought the rescuers would arrive late that afternoon but when they did not turn up, she was forced to spend another night down a crevasse.

But “I knew I was getting out. I was in my hole and I was freezing cold but I wasn’t in a desperate situation. I was more worried for Tomek, who was much weaker”.

It was then that she began to have altitude-induced hallucinations, imagining that people were bringing her hot tea – and that to thank them, she had to give them her shoe.

She was barefoot for five hours, and developed frostbite.

Exhausted at 6,800 metres, Revol decided to stay put to preserve her strength and keep warm.

Her hopes were raised by the whirring noise of a helicopter overhead, but the wind was gathering strength and the rescue team was unable to land.

After realising she would have to spend a third night in the open, “I started to question whether I would survive,” she says, adding that she had not received a message sent by the Polish climbers telling her they were coming.

Finally, she began her final descent, with wet gloves and frozen feet, and managed to reach one of the camps. “And then I saw two headlamps arriving. So I started to yell. And I said to myself, ‘OK it’s going to be OK. It was incredibly emotional”.

Revol was later flown to Islamabad and on to Switzerland on Thursday, before being transported across the border.

Will she ever climb again? “I think I will,” she said. “I need this.”

BJP govt implementing social justice: PM Modi on Budget

no thumb


NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday described “social justice” as his government’s key motto, saying initiatives announced in the Union Budget showed it did not merely talk about welfare of the weaker sections but also worked to implement it.

Addressing MPs at a BJP Parliamentary Party meeting, PM Modi asked them to go to the masses to highlight the budget’s pro- people measures, terming it an “historic document” to fulfil his government’s aim of ‘sabka sath sabka vikas’ (With all, development for all), Union minister Ananth Kumar told reporters.

The prime minister asked the MPs to take the welfare programmes to the needy and not confine themselves to merely cutting ribbons, an MP,
who
was present in the meeting, said.

He asked MPs to travel across their constituencies in the next few days before Parliament meets next week and interact with people in not “technical” but simple language.

The prime minister cited the example of veteran BJP MP Hukumdev Narayan Yadav,
who
is known for his earthy communication skills.

Calling budget a “festival” for the government, he asked law-makers to connect with the people.

He spoke about ‘Ayushman Bharat’, which envisages health insurance for over 10 crore poor families, ‘Ujjwala yojna’, ‘Swachh Bharat’ and other initiatives like opening more hospitals, medical colleges and educational centres to stress the budget’s pro-poor credentials.

He described the health insurance scheme as the world’s largest social security scheme.

“Our government does not merely talk about social justice but also executes it,” he said, adding that people should be informed about how the government is spending more and more money on education and health sectors.

Social justice has traditionally been a political plank of socialist and the Left parties.

The prime minister said his government has constructed more than six crore toilets, calling them ‘izzat ghars’ (symbol of honour).

They are not only toilets but are a symbol of women’s respect and their empowerment, he said, according to Kumar.

BJP chief Amit Shah heaped praise on PM Modi and finance minister Arun Jaitley for the budget which, he told MPs, is “pro-farmers and pro-poor with a lot of scope for employment generation”.

Jaitley also briefed the MPs about the main highlights of the budget while Rail Minister Piyush Goyal briefed them about Modi’s visit at World Economic Forum meeting in Davos
