“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” the network said. “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”

The celebrity chef had been working on an upcoming episode for his award-winning show “Parts Unknown,” which featured Bourdain traveling to exotic locations all around the world as he indulged in local cuisine and customs.

In an email to employees, CNN president Jeff Zucker mourned Bourdain’s passing. “Tony was an exceptional talent,” said Zucker. “Tony will be greatly missed not only for his work but also for the passion with which he did it.”

Bourdain became an international star back in 1999 with an article he wrote for the New Yorker called “Don’t Eat Before Reading This,” a piece which eventually transformed into a best selling book, “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.”

He eventually made his way to the Food Network where he hosted “A Cook’s Tour” and then “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations,” which was nominated for an Emmy.

Sadly, Bourdain leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter, Ariane.

This is truly a sad, sad end to an extraordinary life and career. Thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones he left behind.

WATCH: Antifa Radicals Get Violent At Portland Protest, Attack & Pepper Spray Journalist (Videos)

HORRIBLE!

It’s no wonder President Trump is considering designating Antifa a domestic terror organization. The group has one goal: to impose their will by any means necessary in order to silence conservatives. That would be fascism, funny enough. Check out what’s currently happening in Portland… Independent journalist @Muffinpan503 was attacked & pepper sprayed. A woman tries to calm the angry shirtless man following him but is told to mind her own business as a white person. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162793066022858752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162793066022858752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F “I didn’t come to talk, I came to bring it out.” Things are getting tense at the antifa protest. Someone hit a man’s microphone to the ground. I recognize this shirtless man from Seattle last year at another antifa protest. He came up to me and said, “Death is coming.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162790907050991616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162790907050991616&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F A black man praises Jesus on a bullhorn. The shirtless protester yells at him: “Ain’t no f—ing white Jesus going to save the black man from the white man’s oppression, uncle Tom.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162797976823013376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162797976823013376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F More on Portland, via Guardian: As Portland prepared for what may be one of the biggest political demonstrations of the US summer, which authorities expected would lead to violence, Donald Trump threw into the mix a characteristically explosive tweet. “Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR’,” the president wrote from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday morning. “Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!” “Antifa” is a collective term for a loose affiliation of anti-fascist groups. Such counter-protesters have clashed with far right activists in the Oregon city throughout the Trump era, some of them wearing “black bloc” attire and face masks. Stay tuned for more…

REPORT: Not Long Before Epstein’s Arrest, He Rush-Ordered $100,000 Cement Mixer to Private Island

Hmm…Interesting, to say the LEAST!

You know when you call a business and ask them to deliver a cement mixer to your private island? Oh, have you never been in Jeffrey Epstein’s shoes? Now that a medical examiner has “confirmed” that the registered sex offender committed suicide, new information has just been released about what happened in the lead-up to his arrest. From Daily Wire: Convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a $100,000 cement truck rushed to his mansion in the Virgin Islands late last year, just days before a bombshell report was published by the Miami Herald which ultimately led to his arrest. Epstein “got the Carmix 5.5 XL self-loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year,” the Daily Mail reported. “Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner — even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit.” The timeline of events is important here, especially when taking into consideration other items that Epstein shipped to his other residences at times when he was facing legal troubles. Who are we kidding? Epstein was probably trying to bury some evidence, right? RIGHT!? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPMp9edgAeg That Jeffrey Epstein could commit suicide after being on suicide watch defies belief. There are many powerful men who wanted him dead, and their secrets to die with him. Epstein epitomized the sickness in the souls of so many men. #ToxicMasculinity https://twitter.com/tonyschwartz/status/1160188139941572608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188139941572608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F I have no idea how Epstein committed suicide while under suicide watch. There needs to be a thorough investigation. More importantly, I’m saddened for all the people who will be denied answers, explanations, and justice. https://twitter.com/marclamonthill/status/1160188503780671491?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188503780671491&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment…
