The foul-mouthed teenage girl whose appearance on the Dr. Phil show may have launched the internet's new favorite meme. But in truth she's just a Boynton Beach, Florida, kid who is the product of a dramatically severed relationship, according to more than a decade's worth of Palm Beach County court documents.

Danielle Bregoli, the 13-year-old girl whose catchphrase – "Cash me outside, howbow dah?" – has brought 3.4 million followers to her Instagram page, is the daughter of a Palm Beach Sheriff's deputy.

In an exclusive interview with The Palm Beach Post, Ira Peskowitz expressed outrage at the crude images and videos featuring his daughter all over the internet. 

"That behavior is appalling. And it's appalling that anyone can think it is acceptable behavior. And Dr. Phil? Shame on him," Peskowitz told The Palm Beach Post this week as his daughter was scheduled to make a second appearance on the TV show.

Search and rescue efforts in California's Joshua Tree National Park led to the discovery of two bodies embracing one another. They are believed to be Joseph Orbeso, 21, and Rachel Nguyen, 20.

According to KESQ and KABC, the couple was last heard from in late July, and search teams later located their car near the beginning of one of the park’s trails. Their last known contact was a cellphone ping in the area, and their belongings were found still inside the Airbnb they were renting, as they never checked out.

Orbeso’s father, Gilbert, and a group of search and rescue workers launched a months-long search for the hikers, making a huge breakthrough on Sunday as they scaled 30-foot cliffs and covered new ground. Clothing, food wrappers and water bottles led them to the bodies, which were picked up by a helicopter and sent to a coroner’s office to confirm the identities. Orbeso’s father, however, is certain that the remains belong to his son and his son’s girlfriend.

“A sense of relief that we have found them after going a long time on these hikes. I feel like we have closure. We know we found them. That was our main goal, to find them. And I’m glad we did that,” he said, according to KESQ.

"Hope they can rest in peace now," he added, KABC reported.

Official identification of the remains is pending and will follow completed autopsies.

Trump presses tax reform as Senate begins debate on GOP budget outline

Published: Wednesday, October 18, 2017 @ 2:08 AM

President Donald Trump urged conservative activists on Tuesday night to help lobby Senators in favor of a GOP tax reform package, as despite some infighting, Republicans seemed like they would be able to approve a budget outline this week in the Senate, a plan which would allow for future legislative action on a tax bill – without the threat of a Senate filibuster.

“Let’s give our country the best Christmas present of all – massive tax relief,” the President said in a speech at the Heritage Foundation, where his vow of big tax cuts drew large cheers from the audience.

“This is our once-in-a-generation opportunity to revive our economy,” Mr. Trump added, though he acknowledged that he doesn’t expect much support from Democrats in the Congress.

Before any tax bill can be brought up on the floor of the House and Senate, both chambers must approve a budget outline for 2018, which authorizes the use of the ‘budget reconciliation’ process for tax reform – helping the GOP to avoid a Senate filibuster. That was the same legislative tool used in a failed bid to overhaul the Obama health law.

In an important sign for the White House, Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) – who had been absent for weeks with an illness, returned to Capitol Hill on Tuesday – and then, GOP leaders won the support of another key Republican Senator, who has tangled repeatedly with the President.

“I support the Senate budget resolution because it provides a path forward on tax reform,” said Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who still wants GOP leaders to add more money to the budget outline for military needs.

Still not ready to commit to the budget or tax plans was Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who lobbed a series of pointed jabs at both McCain, and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), accusing them of trying to use budget gimmicks to funnel more money to the Pentagon, instead of finding ways to restrain spending.

In a first test vote, the Senate voted 50-47 in favor of beginning debate on the budget framework for 2018, which would balance the budget by 2026. A House budget outline would achieve that a year later.

No Democrats joined with Republicans to begin the Senate debate, as right now, the White House faces a difficult task in getting any Democratic lawmakers to endorse the President’s budget or tax plans.

“It’s going to be hard to get the Democrats, because they’re obstructionists, and they vote in blocks,” the President said in his Tuesday night speech.

If no Democrats cross party lines on taxes, that makes it all the more important for the GOP to stick together in the Senate, or the GOP could face the same outcome as on health care reform.

No legislative language for a tax reform plan has been released as yet by the GOP. Lawmakers don’t expect to see all the details until next month.

Georgia Mother Kills Two Youngest Sons By Placing Them In The Oven

Jameel Penn says he learned his boys were in trouble when their mother called him via video chat.

Lamora Williams panned around the room, and Penn saw his sons on the floor.

“After I seen what I seen, you know I called the police,” Penn said in an interview Sunday.

But Lamora Williams’ first call wasn’t to Penn.

Longtime friend Neesa Smith told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Williams called her first Friday night.

“I asked her what was wrong and she said, ‘I can’t do it no more,’” Smith said.

The friend said that Williams told her the boys were dead. “I said, ‘Call the police Mora. Just call the police,’” Smith said.

Williams was arrested Saturday and charged with murder after her two young children, ages 1 and 2, were found dead inside their southwest Atlanta home.

The two boys had “received burn marks on their bodies at some point,” according to Atlanta police. Investigators hauled an oven away from William’s Oakland City West End apartment.

Williams, 24, told police she left the children with a caregiver at noon Friday and returned home late in the evening, finding the children dead and the caregiver gone. But police say they do not believe Williams left her children with a caregiver. She has been booked into the Fulton County jail.

“I ain’t got no soul no more,” Penn said during a vigil Saturday, as he held onto his 3-year-old, Jameel.

“Ja’karter, Keyante, my world, my everything. I’m lost,” he said.

Friends and family members described Williams as a good-hearted, but overwhelmed woman who meant well.

The 24-year-old single mother of four had help from Penn and her 6-year-old daughter’s father’s side of the family, but it wasn’t enoughthey said.

Williams quit a job about a month ago because she couldn’t find a sitter for the kids, according to Smith. “Nobody could tell what she was going through,” she said.
