PIERS MORGAN: Hillary and the hypocritical Democrats aren't defending American democracy from foreign meddling, they are a clear and present danger to it
Cast your minds back to a few weeks before the US election, when it never crossed the Hillary camp's elitist, arrogant minds that Trump, the ignorant Neanderthal, could beat her, the woman dubbed 'the most qualified candidate in history' by President Obama. Then Trump sensationally triumphed, sparking weeks of Biblical scale weeping and wailing from those who opposed him. First, Green loser Jill Stein's pathetic recount failed. Now, the Clinton camp has launched one final, breathtakingly stupid and dangerous Hail Mary - an attempted coup by members of the Electoral College to try to overturn the election result.
EXCLUSIVE: General Mad Dog's bloodiest battle - how Trump's pick for the Pentagon erupted with f-word rant as his all-out effort to crush jihadi 'nest of vipers' in Fallujah was over-ruled by George W Bush
President-elect Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of Defense, retired Marine General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis (left, and top right in 2004), 66, is a tough-talking intellectual who favors aggressive tactics. Trump's decision to name Mattis as the Secretary of Defense won praise from military officials and defense experts. Of all the battles that Mattis has fought, the First Battle for Fallujah showed how the general used his decades of studying military history to draw up a strategy to occupy the center of jihadi rebellion. The First Battle of Fallujah came after four American contractors working for Blackwater, a private military company, were ambushed as they drove through the city (bottom right). But he exploded with anger when politicians balked at the price in blood and treasure.

Reality TV clip of Florida mom telling an undercover cop she was '5,000 percent sure she wanted her husband killed' before she 'ordered a hitman' is shown to murder-for-hire trial again as jury admits they are deadlocked
Undercover audio and video recordings are again being played for jurors deliberating the fate of Florida woman Dalia Dippolito (pictured in court left on Tuesday) accused of trying to hire a hit man to murder her then-husband, Michael Dippolito (pictured with her inset) in 2009. The six jurors asked on Tuesday to review tapes of Dippolito talking to an informant and an undercover officer posing as the hit man (a grab from one the videos, right). If convicted of solicitation of first-degree murder, the 34-year-old Dippolito would face a possible 20-year sentence. In one tape, she tells police informant and her former lover and police informant Mohammed Shihadeh to find her a hit man. In another, she tells Boynton Beach Detective Widy Jean she was '5,000 percent sure' she wanted her then-husband Michael Dippolito killed. Those 2009 conversations were seen by millions when shown on television's 'Cops.' Dippolito was convicted in 2011, but that verdict was thrown out on appeal. Deliberations began on Tuesday morning.

Mothers who potty-train babies from BIRTH: Believe it or not, it's the new parenting fad. Experts say it's risky, but these proud moms insist it's good for baby - and the planet
Jill Williamson (left and inset), from South Croydon, has been 'potty-training' Ryker since birth and swears she knows, from his movements and demeanour, exactly when he needs to 'go' and usually - usually - gets him to the toilet on time. A study published in the scientific journal Urology in 2012 indicated some children develop a habit of 'chronic holding', in which they resist the urge to go to the toilet, leading to constipation, bladder problems and urinary tract infections. And those most prone to the condition are those who were potty trained early - especially before the age of two. According to Feilim Murphy, consultant paediatric urologist at the Portland Hospital in London, the early training interferes with the natural maturing process of the body and brain. Becca Heorton (right), a 33-year-old midwife and mother from Peckham, South London, is not convinced by the warnings, however.
