Mattis Says 19 Percent of U.S. Military Properties in the World Are Not Needed ​

http://thegoldwater.com/news/9857-Mattis-Says-19-Percent-of-U-S-Military-Properties-in-the-World-Are-Not-Needed

A good portion, at least an estimate 19 percent, of U.S. military properties around the world may not be necessary or unneeded, after all. That is according to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis as he shared to Congress, and urged the lawmakers to permit him to take a closer look, and determine which of such military assets are not necessary to keep.

Mattis provided a report to Congress earlier this month related to his claim as Pentagon is pushing lawmakers to allow a new review of properties under the Base Realignment and closure program, or BRAC, which could eventually result to shuttering of excess facilities in the 2020s.

Russia proposes punishing schools and parents if kids go to rallies amid anti-Putin protests

https://en.crimerussia.com/gover/russian-mia-proposes-punishing-teachers-if-kids-go-to-rallies-/

Timur Valiulin, the chief of the main department for countering extremism of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, suggested holding parents and teachers responsible if their teen children take part in uncoordinated political actions, he said in a statement during a President-backed meeting of the Human Rights Council, RBC reported.

"We are concerned about young people participating in uncoordinated street actions. The percentage of young protesters is growing. The ever-lowering average age of the participants is alarming," Valiulin said.

"We should think if we could introduce amendments or changes in order to hold accountable both the rally organizers and the parents of the participating schoolchildren, as well as the educators, too," the MIA official said.

Dan Brown Declares That ‘God Cannot Survive Science’

Dan Brown, author of the best-selling Da Vinci Code, has joined philologist Friedrich Nietzsche in announcing the death of God, declaring that “God cannot survive science.”

“Historically, no god has survived science. Gods evolved,” the American writer said last week at the Frankfurt Book Fair, where he launched the German edition of his latest novel, Origin. “All the gods of our past have fallen. So the question now is: Are we naive to think the gods of today won’t suffer the same fate?”

“Our need for the exterior God that sits up there and judges us… will diminish and eventually disappear,” Brown said.

Along with several other modern God-slayers, such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens, Brown paints an absolute opposition between God and science, such that only one of the two can survive. Thus, as science advances, it will necessarily take the place of God—a thesis that not all accept.

Billionaire George Soros Funnels $18 billion Into Open Society Foundations

http://thegoldwater.com/news/9858-Billionaire-George-Soros-Funnels-18-billion-Into-Open-Society-Foundations

The billionaire George Soros surprised the world over the last few years by pumping nearly $18 billion into the Open Society Foundations. The foundations essentially allow Soros to fund whichever political proposition he needs without being tied directly to the foundations motives.

The 87-year-old has amassed a net worth of $23 billion dollars, $18 billion of which has been funneled into Open Society Foundations. Soros himself lived through the Nazi occupation of his native country Hungary but later fled communist rule to the United States. The Open Society Foundation doesn't only fund political agendas, the foundation has also helped countries with issues such as refugee relief and public health efforts. The foundation has also funded Planned Parenthood and the Black Lives Matter movement. On the political end, the foundation spent $1.4 million to help pass California’s Proposition 47 which drug possession and minor theft charges to misdemeanors.

Russia Wants to Cash In On the Bitcoin Boom, Launches “CryptoRuble”

https://thegoldwater.com/news/9797-Russia-Wants-to-Cash-In-On-the-Bitcoin-Boom-Launches-CryptoRuble

Siluanov said since cryptocurrencies seem inevitable, Russia needs to create a legal framework already for the operations. He said: “We need to control these operations if these operations contravene the law, including money laundering legislation. The state cannot remain on the sidelines. The states sees all the risks that might arise during the purchase and sale of these cryptocurrencies, especially for the general public, who do not always have the requisite level of education.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin, however, said prior to Siluanov comments, that cryptocurrencies like bitcoin were used for criminal activity and would be blocked by his country’s central bank.

Male Victim Erasure and Backlash in #MeToo Campaign

https://thegoldwater.com/news/9759-Male-Victim-Erasure-and-Backlash-in-MeToo-Campaign

Why only women, though? Oh, right, because according to the narrative, men can only be the aggressors in physical or sexual assault situations. This situation cuts fairly deep as well. The legal definition of rape renders a woman literally incapable of rape unless she penetrates her victim for instance. I, for one, am an egalitarian and as such believe that a woman is capabe of anything that a man could do. That includes evils and atrocities. Oddly, the "halo effect" that protects women from stiff sentences a man might receive isn't considered one of the "dangerous gender stereotypes" feminism is concerned with eradicating.

Britain’s biggest child sex abuse charity has condemned Wiltshire Police for labelling a serial paedophile a ‘victim’ over claims he was raped by Sir Edward Heath as a child.

The 68-year-old man, who is in jail for child abuse, alleges that the former prime minister raped him in 1961 when he was just 11.

The rape claim is the most serious accusation that Wiltshire Police was able to produce after a £1.5 million, two-year inquiry that has shredded Heath’s reputation.

Male hospital patients receiving blood are more likely to die if they receive transfusions from a woman donor who has been pregnant, a new study suggests.

Researchers believe that antibodies acquired by women during pregnancy to protect the baby may trigger reactions in men which could prove fatal.

The most common cause of death was transfusion-related acute lung injury (Trali). Although the scientists warn that more studies are needed to replicate the findings, they say the results ‘if true, have significant clinical implications.’

The open-ended ban, announced last month, targeted people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela. It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the Supreme Court.

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

Donald Trump: Wall Funding Will Be Part of DACA Deal with Democrats

President Donald Trump restated his support for wall funding, telling reporters on Monday that it would be part of any deal with Democrats to legalize illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

“We need a wall in this country. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it,” Trump said during a press conference with Mitch McConnell on Monday. “We need a wall and that will be part of it.”

Trump was asked by ABC’s Jon Karl if he would insist that wall funding would be part of a deal with Democrats to provide a solution for DACA recipients.

The president pointed out that Mexico was “not doing particularly well” on stopping drugs and illegal immigration from coming into the United States, which was why it was a priority.

Trump also spoke about the wall during a cabinet meeting at the White House.

“We have a very good relationship with Mexico but there are a lot of problems, and we don’t want the drugs and we don’t want the crime, but we need the wall,” he said.

He also signaled his opposition to “chain migration,”

Recently, we’ve asked Congress to ensure that any proposed immigration reform ends chain migration,” he said. “It’s critical for creating a system that puts American workers and the American taxpayer first.”

Rick & Morty Szechuan Sauce Traded For Car

Popular culture and fads can be very powerful from time to time. The television series Rick and Morty is highly popular with kids and adults alike for its sarcastic communication between the main protagonists and it’s clear reference to the Doc and Marty McFly Jr friendship in the back to the future movies, which rank very highly with American 30- and 40-somethings.

There is another fad which Rick and Morty have started: Szechuan sauce.

In certain episodes the characters would refer to the sauce which was a one-time offer by McDonalds as a PR stunt for the movie Mulan in 1998.

A few weeks ago, realizing the great popularity of Rick and Morty and the timely references to the Szechuan sauce, McDonalds decide to offer the sauce once again. It was a knockout success. Huge lines stood streets long in front of every McDonalds franchise that had the mystery sauce on offer, mostly parents with their kids. And if your kids want something, then mister, you better get it for them.

Tranny Rapes 10-Year-Old Girl in Gender Neutral Bathroom. Who Could Have Predicted This?

That's right, a tranny went into the restroom and attacked a ten year old girl.

Miguel Martinez now faces one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor.

If the disgusting creature is found guilty, it could face up to 70 years in prison for its heinous crimes.

According to Tracy Hucke, the poor bastard tasked with being the defense attorney of the shemale who raped a child; claims that her client not only identifies as a female but chooses to go by the name Michelle.

Listen Miguel, Michelle, Michael, motherfucker; I don't care what your name is… You're a man.

You were born as a man. You are a man.

A mentally ill one albeit, and a disgusting pedophile that deserves execution, but you cannot be anything other than what you were born as.

The 10-year-old girl's mother says that this foul beast walked into the restroom with her young daughter and began fondling the child's breasts, then proceeded to touch her vagina; before finally using his penis to penetrate the child.

Nurses at the Wyoming Medical Center completed a sexual assault exam and found redness and abrasions on the girl’s genitalia.

Absolutely sickening. Transgender mentally ill individuals are often times simply Pedophiles and Child Rapists who use this as a cloak to assist them in fulfilling their demented fantasies.

These people are monsters, and there's no way around that fact.

The letter was forwarded to Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry on Monday and available via his public email.

Most of the Jaguars, including owner Shad Khan, locked arms during the anthem on Sept. 24. About a dozen players took a knee during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Wembley Stadium. Similar demonstrations happened across the NFL as players, coaches and executives responded to President Donald Trump's suggestion that teams should punish players making any sort of statements of protests during the national anthem.

The Jaguars demonstrated in unity as a team and then stood for "God Save The Queen."

Rob Schneider is known for goofy comedy heavy on the fart jokes and bad puns and light on deep meaning, but his recent comments are absolutely no laughing matter.

No, it's not what you may be thinking. Rob Schneider was not sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein.

Schneider explains the agents, casting directors, producers, directors are rife with abusive power-trippers and sexual predators. There is not one woman it hasn't happened to Schneider says.

"There was a gross director and it happened to me." A director "who has passed away" invited him up to his hotel room and while reclining in a bathrobe asked Schneider to crawl around on the ground. According to James Van Der Beek he too was harassed by a creepy director "who had passed." Actor Terry Crewes also opened up abouut the rampant abuse making it clear that gender is no barrier to assault and abuse from the Hollywood elite.

With a sample taken from over 8,000 resumes which were sent out to to companies over the period of a year; the results were absolutely conclusive in showing that reservists were a whopping 11 percent less likely to receive a call for an interview from employers.

The resumes which were sent in the batch of eight thousand were identical replicas minus one key difference which is that half of them had the applicant listed as an active member of one or more branches if the United States Military Reserves while their counterparts listed as former Reservists on the documents.

You see, Federal Law is supposed to exist to ensure that if a United States Military Reservist or Active Duty Service Member is deployed they're guaranteed by the Federal Government to have their former job with any employer within the United States of America protected and available to them when they return.

LAPD Board Could Approve Controversial Drone Program Tuesday

The civilian panel that oversees the Los Angeles Police Department will consider approving a drone pilot program Tuesday — several months after the department first presented what it called a limited plan to use the technology.

Approval of the program would come despite opposition from activists who consider the technology a threat to civil liberties, and after only 6 percent of the 1,675 emails the department received about the program were in support of it.

The Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners held a meeting two weeks ago, when it approved the guidelines for the 1-year pilot program. Now, after posting the guidelines on the department’s website for two weeks and receiving more public feedback, the board is scheduled to vote on its final approval.

The commission first heard a presentation on the guidelines for the proposed LAPD program in August, and the department held four public meetings to get feedback.

Once on the scene, Sharpe apparently had hoped officers would kill him in a suicide-by-cop narrative, because he jumped into his vehicle and forced them to give into a high speed chase along the Interstate.

Dana Loesch forced to move due to 'repeated threats from gun control advocates'

National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch said Sunday she was preparing to move from her home "due to repeated threats from gun control advocates."

In a series of tweets, Loesch explained some of the threats she has recently experienced.

"One guy hunted down my private cellphone number, called when police were here, threatened to shoot me in my front yard,"

In another post, Loesch said someone posted photos of her house, and "threatened to rape me to death."

The threats haven't just targeted Loesch, but have also focused on her children.

She recently slammed "Saturday Night Live" actors who made fun of gun owners in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, saying during an appearance on "FOX & Friends," they "lack the courage of their own convictions."

Loesch said the anti-Second Amendment jokes are told by celebrities who often have armed security guards to protect them.

"Why don't you give up the firearms that your private security is holding?" she said. "You're not being more virtuous just because you're paying someone else to carry it. You're outsourcing it because you lack the courage of your own convictions."

United States prepares for the worst with North Korea

The Trump administration has not ruled out direct talks with North Korea but the United States and its allies must be “prepared for the worst” if diplomacy fails, the deputy secretary of state said on Tuesday.

​“Eventually, we don’t rule out the possibility of course of direct talks,” John L. Sullivan said during a meeting in Japan, Reuters reported.

“Our focus is on diplomacy to solve this problem that is presented by the DPRK. We must, however, with our allies, Japan and South Korea and elsewhere, be prepared for the worst, should diplomacy fail,” he said, referring to North Korea by its official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

Sullivan’s comments come amid the backdrop of joint military exercises in the waters off the Korean peninsula between US and South Korean troops and a warning by a North Korean envoy that “nuclear war” may be imminent.

​“The situation on the Korean peninsula where the attention of the whole world is focused has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment,” North Korea’s Deputy U.N. Ambassador Kim In Ryong told a U.N. General Assembly committee on Monday.

The Trump administration’s top diplomats said they are still pursuing a diplomatic solution to the standoff with the reclusive regime.

Harvey Weinstein’s Fall Opens the Floodgates in Hollywood

Harvey Weinstein is certainly not the first powerful man publicly and credibly accused of sexually harassing or abusing women in recent years.

Since 2015, the Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, the Fox News prime-time host Bill O’Reilly and the comedian and actor Bill Cosby have suffered professional, financial or reputational setbacks after numerous women told stories of their sexual misconduct.

Those stories dominated news cycles, to be sure, but the outcry accompanying Mr. Weinstein’s downfall seems louder and more impassioned — perhaps because Mr. Weinstein’s accusers include stars like Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.

“I think this is a watershed moment,” said the producer Gail Berman, who had top jobs at Paramount Pictures and the Fox network.

Mr Gilberto Escaramilla’s brilliant plan imploded when he took a day off and someone else answered the phone. If not, he would still be selling state-funded fajitas to a lot of restaurants and shops in the area.

On August 7, Mr. Escaramilla had probably gone to the beach for a day with the family when a driver from Labatt Food Service in Harlingen called ahead to the juvenile justice center to say that he would be shortly arriving with some 800 pounds of fajitas. The woman who answered the phone was alarmed as her kitchen does not serve fajitas.

FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.

Ben Affleck’s Harvey Weinstein woes threaten ‘Justice League’

The impending release of a superhero movie for the holidays, especially one with box-office record breaker Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in it, should make the good folks at Warner Bros. dream of Lambos and extra pizza toppings from all the “Justice League” loot that will roll in starting Nov. 17. Except …

Ben Affleck (a Harvey Weinstein-detractor who then apologized for his own inappropriate behavior that came to light) also stars as Batman. And the Cantabrigian’s co-star is none other than Jason Momoa, whose infamous 2011 “Game of Thrones” rape joke resurfaced last week in a video. He has also apologized for his “tasteless comment.”

Some Batman fans have taken to Twitter, calling for Affleck to hang up his bat cape (or for the studio to do it for him). Of course, there were multiple change.org petitions back in 2013, demanding the Affleck not be cast in “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and he proved to be a popular incarnation of the Caped Crusader.

Will “Justice League” find superhuman strength (or just loads of fans who want to see the DC Universe on the big screen) to overcome box office doom? Or will the Weinstein scandal prove to be its Kryptonite (wrong character, but you get it)?

George Soros Transfers $18 Billion to His Foundation, Creating an Instant Giant

George Soros, who built one of the world’s largest fortunes through a famous series of trades, has turned over nearly $18 billion to Open Society Foundations, according to foundation officials, a move that transforms both the philanthropy he founded and the investment firm supplying its wealth.

Now holding the bulk of Mr. Soros’s fortune, Open Society has vaulted to the top ranks of philanthropic organizations, appearing to become the second largest in the U.S. by assets after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, based on 2014 figures from the National Philanthropic Trust.

Soros Fund Management LLC’s 87-year-old founder now shares influence over the firm’s strategy with an investment committee of Open Society. Mr. Soros set up the committee and is its chairman, but it is meant to survive him, people familiar with it said.

Escaped cow causes chaos as it knocks down tot, gets hit by car while charging into Prospect Park

Cops were scrambling to corral a rampaging baby cow that escaped a slaughterhouse and bowled over a 1-year-old girl as it ran into Prospect Park Tuesday, police and witnesses said.

The NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit trapped the cow inside the Parade Grounds near Coney Island and Caton Aves. after startled parkgoers called 911 around 11 a.m.

They were awaiting the city’s Animal Care Centers to come and sedate the animal, which toppled over a small child and was struck by a car before scrambling into the Parade Grounds.

“I was with my son Kamren and this cow ran out of Prospect Park and ran over a baby girl,” said Alexis Small, 20. “The mom was just crying and trying to calm her down. She was in such pain, I couldn’t even imagine.”

Republican John Culberson: China Unwilling To Cooperate In Space

The question as to what should be thought of China’s intentions in space was put before Republican John Culberson as he was sitting on a discussion panel during the Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop held in Huntsville.

Mr. Culberson chairs the subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee that writes NASA's budget, so when he talks about space, people tend to listen.

His answer as to any possible US-Chinese cooperation in space was rather negative, unfortunately.

Mr. Culberson said: "I think it's fine to partner with the Europeans. They've been with us and do very very good work. Unfortunately, the Chinese government has proven to be one of the most aggressive in the world at, frankly, stealing intellectual property. We all need to understand with our eyes wide open that the Chinese space program is owned lock, stock, and barrel by the People's Liberation Army."

Certainly, the alleged stealing of intellectual property is a serious matter which Mr. Culberson said the Chinese did "at every opportunity they get."

Factorization Flaw Cripples Millions of High-security Crypto Keys

Officials from Estonia revealed that they were closing the ID card public key database to prevent abuse. Further warnings were issued sometime last week, by Google, Microsoft, and Infineon. They all warned about how the weakness can impair the protections built into TPM products, which are ironically designed to give an additional measure of security to high-targeted individuals and organizations.

"In public key cryptography, a fundamental property is that public keys really are public—you can give them to anyone without any impact on security," Graham Steel, CEO of encryption consultancy Cryptosense said, adding that the property had been broken due to the above case.

This implies that if one has a document that is digitally signed with someone's private key, they can't prove that it was really them that signed it. Also, if one sent sensitive data that was encrypted with someone's public key, they can't be sure that only they can read it.

Minorities and critics of the government are faced with the ruthless state security forces to contend with yet they have very few avenues to contest their actions. The anti-gay sentiment is deeply rooted in Chechnya and is an ideology that is very widespread among its people. Not only do LGBT people face persecution from their own government, they also have to worry about "honor killings" from other community members or even their own families. "Honor Killings" is the ruthless practice of killing someone who 'tarnishes the family honor'. Basically, any reason someone wishes to use can be invoked to commit an "honor killing." If a woman sleeps with a man outside of marriage or is even raped they are at risk of being killed by their own families in the name of 'honor'.

The presidential spokesman gave a recommendation to those who are victim's of these practices or suffer abuse at the hands of law enforcement, he says they should report the cases to the authorities. Basically he says to report the abuse to the ones who are committing the abuse so obviously, that's not going to benefit the victims.

Astronomers Strike Gravitational Gold In Colliding Neutron Stars

For the first time, scientists have caught two neutron stars in the act of colliding, revealing that these strange smashups are the source of heavy elements such as gold and platinum.

The discovery, announced Monday at a news conference and in scientific reports written by some 3,500 researchers, solves a long-standing mystery about the origin of these heavy elements — which are found in everything from wedding rings to cellphones to nuclear weapons.

It's also a dramatic demonstration of how astrophysics is being transformed by humanity's newfound ability to detect gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of space-time that are created when massive objects spin around each other and finally collide.

Mitch McConnell ATTACKS Steve Bannon During Joint Presser with Trump

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Steve Bannon on Monday during his joint press conference with President Donald Trump.

McConnell has failed to pass ANY significant legislation since President Trump entered office in January.

Nothing!

Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon announced his plans to replace the deadbeat Republicans who trash President Trump and stall the conservative-populist agenda in Washington DC.

Last week Steve Bannon warned the GOP elites, ” We’re going to cut off the oxygen to Mitch McConnell.”

McConnell didn’t like that.

Today McConnell lashed out at Steve Bannon for going after GOP senate seats in the 2018 election.

Mitch McConnell: The goal here is to win elections in November… My goal is to keep a senate majority. The way you do that is not complicated. You have to nominate people who can actually win because winners make policy and losers go home. We had one skirmish in 2016. We kept the majority in the senate. So our operating approach will be to support our incumbents and in open seats to seek to nominate people who can actually win.

While the US is preparing military options to deal with an attack by North Korea, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday said the administration will continue to pursue a diplomatic solution, saying the “efforts will continue until the first bomb drops.”

Republican lawmakers' troubles deepen as Koch donors and Bannon take aim

Less than a year after Republicans gained control of Washington with President Trump amid heady promises of action, political pressures from multiple directions are bearing down on House and Senate lawmakers whose stalled agenda threatens to exact a toll heavy enough to endanger their majorities.

The messy dilemma congressional Republicans face was starkly visible at two venues in recent days, where powerful factions within the party vented their anger.

At one — a gathering at an expensive New York hotel of wealthy donors aligned with the conservative Koch brothers — frustrations ran so high over the GOP’s inability to deliver on campaign promises that some warned of a wipeout in the 2018 midterm elections. Donors suggested that their financial backing for Republican campaigns could dry up if lawmakers fail to make progress, particularly on tax cuts.

Squirrels Use Sophisticated Technique To Separate Nuts By Type, Study Finds

Some squirrels go a little nuts when it comes to sorting their acorns, a new study finds.

Researchers at UC Berkeley observed the behavior of 45 nearby fox squirrels over a two-year period, finding that they use what’s known as a “chunking” behavior — organizing items into various smaller subsets in order to better manage the overall collection — to categorize their various nuts.

This is notable because humans also use chunking techniques, although generally for storing information, whether the data is of a spatial, linguistic, or mathematical variety. Taking your email, for example, and dividing the messages into various folders could be considered a form of chunking.

Fox squirrels use this strategy to divide the nuts they gather over a year — between 3,000 and 10,000 — into what the researchers term “subfolders,” one for each type of nut.

California Will Block Moves for a “Muslim Registry”’ Across the State

http://thegoldwater.com/news/9709-California-Will-Block-Moves-for-a-Muslim-Registry-Across-the-State

California lives up to its name and status of being a so-called “sanctuary state” as it will prevent a Muslim registry from being implemented in the state.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a much-watched bill on Sunday that will effectively prevent the creation of Muslim registry should President Donald Trump opt to go ahead with such a proposal he campaigned hard for in 2016.

The Senate Bill 31 sponsored by state Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) blocks state and local governments in California from releasing personal information to the federal government for the creation of any religious list, registry or database. It also blocks them from utilizing resources to create their own lists.

Gay Marriage Vote Heats Up - Australian Church Graffiti: Christians Are Nazis

https://thegoldwater.com/news/9648-Gay-Marriage-Vote-Heats-Up-Australian-Church-Graffiti-Christians-Are-Nazis

Australians get a letter in their mail asking whether the 1961 Marriage Act should be amended to include same-sex couples. The ballot carries a single question: "Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?" with the options "Yes" or "No".

The problem is that many are using this opportunity to blame a group for their opposition to the subject. The target? Christians.

Not for the first time since the vote started, an Australian church was sprayed with graffiti urging church-goers to 'Vote Yes, bash bigots' and 'crucify No voters'.

Drew Mellor, the head pastor of Glen Waverley Anglican Church, discovered the menacing words on Sunday morning. He said: “That's very unsettling for some of our older members of our church this morning. Some asked, 'Does that mean we're going to be bashed?”

We are working to quickly determine any basis for criminal charges against any public official who would abuse their office and the people of Puerto Rico in this manner.”

Several complaints have been received by the local San Juan office. Carlos Osorio, the FBI spokesman in Puerto Rico, declared: “I can’t say how many complaints we’ve had that local officials are misappropriating supplies. We’re looking into the complaints, as we do with any complaints that may have a criminal violation nexus.”

The US government had taken over distribution efforts from local Puerto Rico officials since 8 October, after first reports surfaced in the Miami Herald that some local mayors had ‘stumbled on the job’.

At the girl’s home, the man started attacking the teenager by slamming her against the wall. Something saved the girl before more harm could be done to her. As she was falling to the ground, a decorative basket that had some plates in it fell. The victim was able to grab one plate and use it to strike the attacker on the head.

That gave the teen some opportunity to escape from her attacker. The attacker also fled afterwards.

Police are still searching for the man that put a young resident to such an ordeal. Worse things could have been done to the girl if not for her quick thinking, bravery and lucky circumstances like taking hold of one of the felled plates.

In a state where most people are not that keen on refugee settlement, this seems like a stretch.

Just a year ago, citizens from Boise, Idaho were demonstrating against refugees being placed there on the municipal steps of the courthouse.

On average, these non-profit groups bring to the US on average each year some 15,000 Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa, and the Balkans, funded by Idaho tax money amongst others.

It seems unfair that the government should tax the people and then redistribute these taxes to non-profit groups of their choice, trying to promote causes that most people from Idaho are strictly against.

Last time one of those groups tried to do a presentation on a similar subject in Bonner County, in August of this year, the event ended earlier than foreseen as opponents of refugee resettlement dominated the near-capacity audience.

Rushing was arrested in December 2015 when Cpl. Shelby Riggs-Hopkins saw flakes of glaze on his car’s floorboard and assumed that those were pieces of crystal methamphetamine. Rushing tried to explain that those were likely sugar or crumbs from Krispy Kreme doughnuts he’d eaten, but roadside drug tests conducted by the Orlando police yielded positive for the illegal substance. Rushing was then arrested on a drug possession charge with a firearm. He spent 10 hours in jail before being freed after posting bond.

The teacher, who risked a 25-year jail term if found guilty, had always maintained her innocence, even though the school immediately placed her ‘on leave’ after the charges were filed.

Given the absence of physical evidence in the case, the jury relied solely on witness testimony for the ruling.

The prosecution team claimed that Ms. Thiel had sex with the boy both in late 2015 and early 2016, each time at her own condominium. The student was 16 years old at the time.

However, Ms. Thiel’s attorney, Mr. Michael Palmer, convinced the jurors when he pleaded that ‘the student has a massive incentive to get her convicted.’ First of all the mother of the boy was filing a claim against the Lake Pend Oreille School District, so a win, in this case, would help the boy’s mother win her case against the school.

Drug Induced Alabama Man Leads Police on High-Speed Chase before Crashing Killing Girlfriend

https://thegoldwater.com/news/9595-Drug-Induced-Alabama-Man-Leads-Police-on-High-Speed-Chase-before-Crashing-Killing-Girlfriend

Police say that the Lincoln literally hit the pole with such impact that it “wrapped itself around the pole”, ejecting 31-year-old Ashley Diane White from the car.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The utility pole transformer blew, dropping sparks on the car (and) catching it on fire about 10 minutes after the wreck," the crash report states. "The car caught fire from the gas leaking from the gas tank and burned the car up totally."

Toler was taken to Huntsville Hospital where the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences performed a drug screen on Toler’s blood.

Court documents which were released this past week alleged that Toler was indeed under the influence of "several controlled substances" when he "recklessly" caused White's death.

Experts warned that politicians could be exposed to blackmail or face a heightened threat of terrorist attack if those emails accounts were accessed. They have repeatedly asked politicians to step up cyber-security in Whitehall, the UK parliament.

It is believed by British intelligence that the attack was carried out by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, a group that President Donald Trump described as terrorists in yesterday’s speech.

The US president accused Tehran of violating the spirit of the landmark 2015 agreement and believes the international community is being quite naive in its dealings with the regime. As predicted, European powers are calling on the US today to let Iran off the hook and continue the opening up of trade.

The need for clarification from Campos testimony arises from a discrepancy in the timelines first put forward by Las Vegas Metro Police. Originally the LVMPD said Campos was shot while responding to the shooter's room AFTER he had opened fire on the crowd. That timeline has since been revised to show Campos was shot FIRST, a full six minutes before shots were reported being fired into the crowd.

It seems only Campos can confirm which timeline is accurate but maybe the pressure was too much for him and he has chosen to go into hiding. Or could something more sinister be at work and have taken Campos against his will? We will have to wait and find out.

The police also say it was not simply a case of a father losing his senses and snapping. The statements of the authorities now provide a stark contrast to the picture McNabb painted on Saturday as he spoke to local media and said he was determined to find his baby while crews exerted efforts to search for baby Caliyah. He even screamed at Channel 2’s Chris Jose, “I want my kid, man!”

McNabb, however, did not really “look”’ for his baby. Instead, he fled as investigators searched the woods of Hamilton Mill Road. He was later caught in a car wash half a mile away. He was then arrested for a probation violation.

The State Department officially anounced the withdrawl, slated to take effect December 31, 2018, saying, "This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects US concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO."

The United States would seek to "remain engaged …as a non-member observer state in order to contribute U.S. views, perspectives and expertise," the State Department added.

The withdrawal would also constitute a cost-saving measure for the US, the report added, with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson interested in halting American funding for the organization and paying off America's debt to the UN group, which is $500 million.

The problem is there is no fraud that has occurred either so Weinstein's firing is looking more and more like it was not legal, in the technical sense of the word only, obviously, his behavior should be punished but in the eyes of the law, the contract is legally binding.

They might be convicted criminals, but when it came to the heartbreaking devastation left by Hurricane Harvey this summer, they became heroes of sorts.

Inmates in Texas’ criminal justice system wanted to help those impacted by the Category 4 hurricane, which caused $200 billion in damage in the state.

“They were requesting to donate money,” said Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark. “It’s just something they chose to do.”

Cincinnati FBI Asking for Public's Help Identifying Woman in Child Porn Case

http://thegoldwater.com/news/9489-Cincinnati-FBI-Asking-for-Public-s-Help-Identifying-Woman-in-Child-Porn-Case

The Cincinnati Offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation have released images of a woman who they say may be able to help them save a child victim who's being abused in several child porn films, and the Cincy FBI needs the public to assist in identifying the woman.

The FBI is simply referring to the woman as ”Jane Doe 39”, who they believe is of Asian descent and possibly between the ages of 25 and 35 years old with long black hair.

Helping the FBI locate this woman could be crucial to saving a child since she appeared in a child porn video that was recognized by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

In the video, the woman appeared to have been speaking Vietnamese, and it's possible she's a victim of human trafficking herself.

She was wearing a white, yellow, blue, and red floral dress in the initial video, albeit that may not be enough to go on alone.

FBI Cincinnati spokesman Todd Lindgren said it remains unseen if the video was shared outside of Ohio but they most certainly believe finding this woman is crucial to their investigation.

Brooklyn man, 91, dies after home invaders tie up him and his 99-year-old wife

A 91-year-old Brooklyn man died, possibly from shock, Wednesday after cruel home invaders tied him and his 99-year-old wife up in their home.

The woman told police that at about 3:15 p.m., she felt someone come up behind her and throw a blanket over her head in their three-story house on Decatur St. near Marcus Garvey Blvd. in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

She said four men had somehow gotten into the house. They also tied up her husband.

“The house was not ransacked. We’re still trying to determine if anything was taken,” a law enforcement source said. “At the very least, it’s someone they knew.”

After they left, she freed herself and called 911.

The terrifying incident caused the husband to fall unconscious, and he later died at Interfaith Medical Center.

“She has no idea that her husband has died,” the source said.

There was no forced entry into the home, sources said.

Trump's Justice Department moves on Harvey Weinstein

The FBI has opened an investigation into Harvey Weinstein, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned.

DailyMail.com understands the move came at the behest of the Department of Justice, run by Donald Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which instructed the bureau to investigate the mounting allegations leveled at the movie mogul.

While it is unknown whether the DOJ order came directly from Sessions, the move is likely to be seen in a political light given Weinstein's friendship with Trump foe Hillary Clinton.

The move by the DOJ came amid rumors that Weinstein plans to head to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.

Spain Turns Screws on Catalans With Threat of Direct Control

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy stepped up pressure on Catalonia to halt its drive for independence, taking the first step in a process that could strip the region’s separatist government of its limited autonomy and impose direct control from Madrid.

Rajoy convened an emergency session of cabinet on Wednesday, at which ministers agreed to issue a formal request to the Catalan government for confirmation of whether it had declared independence. Rajoy cited “deliberate confusion” sown by the regional administration in Barcelona the previous day.

Catalan President Carles Puigdemont’s response to the request will determine what happens next, Rajoy said. “If Mr. Puigdemont makes clear his wish to respect the law and return institutions to normality, he would end a period of uncertainty, tension and rupture.”

Worker warned hotel before Las Vegas shooter opened fire on crowd

A maintenance worker said Wednesday he told hotel dispatchers to call police and report a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel before the shooter began firing from his high-rise suite into a crowd at a nearby musical performance.

The revised timeline has renewed questions about whether better communication might have allowed police to respond more quickly and take out the gunman before he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Worker Stephen Schuck says he was checking out a report of a jammed fire door on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay when he heard gunshots and a hotel security guard, who had been shot in the leg, peeked out from an alcove and told him to take cover.

Trump and Mattis team up to refute NBC nuke report, blast 'disgusting' press

President Trump and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis on Wednesday publicly refuted an NBC News report that claimed the commander-in-chief wanted to drastically increase the U.S. nuclear arsenal, with Trump calling the press "disgusting."

On the sidelines of a meeting in the Oval Office with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump slammed the NBC report that said he sought a “nearly tenfold increase” in the nuclear arsenal during a summer meeting.

“Frankly, it’s disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write and people should look into it,” Trump told reporters. “I never discussed increasing [the nuclear arsenal]. That is fake news by NBC, which gives a lot of fake news recently.”

Trump added that he only wants “modernization” and “rehabilitation” of the stockpile.

WATCH: Man Assaulted On New York Train-car, Authorities Not Concerned

Finally, fed up passengers threw the man off the train while authorities failed to intervene. One woman even threw her cup of soup on the man. While the man was shouting a racial slur, he was clearly doing it to get a rise out of the black passengers on the train and when confronted he hid behind the First Amendment arguing it allows him to say whatever he wants.

The video was filmed by Joshua Pyne who says he doesn't condone violence but he's "not gonna lose sleep over what happened to this guy." What the video fails to show is what happened before the camera started recording. The man seems upset by something that was either said her done to him that sent him off on the angry rant.

Michigan Judge Holds Order Giving a Rapist Parental Rights Over Victim’s Son

https://thegoldwater.com/news/9446-Michigan-Judge-Holds-Order-Giving-a-Rapist-Parental-Rights-Over-Victim-s-Son

On Tuesday county prosecutors also said in a released statement that the paternity issue was brought up when the mother asked for help from the state for her 8-year-old son. The statement further clarified that while Mirasolo was granted joint legal custody after the confirmation of his paternity, the mother was also provided with veto power over any rights he had to be able to see the child.

A DNA test last month confirmed that Mirasolo is the biological father of the boy.

The prosecutors stressed that the order “awarded the mother sole physical custody of the minor child”. They also said that the order is clear that, if the mother does not want the father to have visitation, she does not have to provide it. “

It was not also established as of Tuesday whether prosecutors were aware of Mirasolo’s criminal record during the assistance and paternity case- crucial information that could have altered the decision.

Police Officer Who Handcuffed Utah Nurse Fired

The letter directly criticized the former detective, "“You demonstrated extremely poor professional judgment (especially for an officer with 27 years of experience), which calls into question your ability to effectively serve the public and the department." Chief Brown also renounced Payne and cited a lack of confidence, "I no longer believe that you can retain a leadership position in the department."

The confrontation occurred on July 26 when Detective Payne demanded a blood sample from a patient in a coma following a fatal crash during a police pursuit. The subject whose blood Payne sought was a victim of a criminal who slammed his vehicle head-on into his truck causing it to burst into flames. The law cites one of three requirements to obtain a blood sample, patient consent (which he could not give being unconscious) a warrant (which Payne did not have) or the patient is under arrest (which he was not).

RIP Windows Phone: Microsoft officially pulls plug

Microsoft has finally pulled the plug on Windows Phone. Official confirmation came from a top Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore on Twitter.

“Of course we'll continue to support the platform.. bug fixes, security updates, etc. But building new features/hw aren't the focus,” Belfiore tweeted Sunday.

If there was any surprise at all it was that Windows Phone was still breathing. Gartner said that Windows Phone registered a near-infinitesimal 0.1% market share in the first quarter of this year, reflecting the overwhelming dominance of Apple's iPhone and all the many Android handsets.

That two-headed global monster not only took down Windows Phones, but delivered the same blow to the once dominant BlackBerry platform. Even Bill Gates recently conceded that he now uses an Android phone.

The boys went off to fight in Syria whilst the parents lied to the FBI about their whereabouts. No one knows where Arman, 27 years old, and Omar Ali, 26 years old currently are or if they even survived the Syrian war, but their parents are set to be sentenced for lying to the FBI tomorrow.

Mr. Mohommad Ali, 57 years old, still declines to talk to the press about his sons. But when he was interviewed by the FBI in 2015, he lied to them about their whereabouts, telling inspectors they were still in Cairo, Egypt.

His wife, Ms. Sumaiya Ali, 49 years old, also stated to the FBI her sons were in Egypt studying, that they were “very reserved” and had not made friends.

The court documents show that Mr. Ali “advised that his sons were peaceful, liked to study, and never indicated they would be affiliated with any terrorist group.”

According to research, the hotel was first observed in the exact same location in the 1970s, but scientists at that time were limited in what their ability was in order to study it.

“At that time, the scientific community had just launched the first satellites that provided images of the sea-ice cover from space. On-site measurements in the Southern Ocean still require enormous efforts, so they are quite limited,” Dr. Torge Martin said of the mysterious hole.

The now recurrence supports a climate model of studies by a research group at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, who identified the so-called polynya as part of natural climate variability and explained its awe and wonder in the community of science.

We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues."

The issue has, of course, become highly politicized as Vice-President Pence walked out on an NFL game over the weekend as some players present on the field did not respect the US flag and the national anthem. President Trump has been critical of such players for weeks on end, resulting in many of his hard-core supporters simply ‘turning off’ for the games.

Owners are of course very aware of the business implications the anthem controversy is having. Up to this point, no major sponsors have dropped out but it is clear that the VP walkout is a turning point for many fans.

Bannon said he is declaring "war" on the Republican establishment and those that don't back what President Trump ran on. He said there is a "new game in town" and promised to "cut off the oxygen" to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and stop his fundraising for establishment candidates. Bannon said any person running for the Senate in 2018 that wants his support must oppose McConnell as the Republican Leader.

"Sexual assault," was the short, if not sweet reply. The Weinstein story just keeps growing.

Let's take a look into the past at a shooting that rocked America to the core in 1999, the Columbine high school shooting. Prior to the years leading up to Columbine, mass shooters were few and far between. Law enforcement had little experience with planning for or stopping gunman on the loose with the sole intent of mass murder without regard for their own lives or any others.

When Columbine happened in 1999, over 300 police from nearly 50 different law enforcement agencies responded to the high school but did not form an organized team to neutralize the shooters until many hours after the shooting began. It took nearly four hours after the first shots were fired for the first law enforcement officer to even enter the high school.

The failure to actively seek out and neutralize the two teenage gunmen at Columbine has been criticized time and time again and served as an important lesson for the law enforcement community prompting a change in tactics. Contrast the 3 hour and 45 minute time span it took for police to even enter Columbine high school with the 12 minutes that it took Las Vegas law enforcement to neutralize the gunman.

Going only by the name ”Mary Doe” in the court records, she argued her religion “does not adhere to the idea that life begins at conception, and, because of that, the prerequisites for an abortion in Missouri are unconstitutionally violating her freedom of religion protected by the First Amendment.”

Microsoft has a massive network of machines that are focused on using machine learning and artificial intelligence to detect threats on the Internet.

It is this data that is used to help identify threats through products like Windows Defender, Advanced Threat Protection, SmartScreen for Microsoft Edge and Windows Store apps, and exploit protections.

While machine learning and artificial intelligence are good at finding patterns and certain behaviors in data sometimes the power of the crowd can be useful in finding edge security threats and cases.

Well as of today individuals can now submit suspicious websites directly to the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) thanks to a new preview program.

Zuckerberg ‘Exploited Disaster’ With Puerto Rico Virtual Reality Stunt

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been labeled a “heartless billionaire” engaging in “voyeuristic tourism” by users of the social network after he appeared as a virtual reality cartoon in hurricane-hit Puerto Rico.

Zuckerberg appeared as a 3-D avatar alongside Facebook’s head of social virtual reality, Rachel Franklin, in order to demonstrate Facebook’s VR tool Spaces and discuss his company’s partnership with NetHope and American Red Cross.

Zuckerberg drew criticism from some Facebook users after appearing to forget the name of Hurricane Maria, the Category 4 storm that devastated the island in September, while simultaneously describing how VR is “magical” in its ability to virtually teleport people to disaster zones.

James O’Keefe Busts James Comey’s Purported ‘Godson,’ Video Editor at New York Times

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released another mainstream media exposé — this time, showing a former Democratic campaign operative who helps edit the New York Times‘ video content on social media platforms and apparently pretended to be James Comey’s godson.

In the video, New York Times Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich claims to have worked on social media for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and to have worked on his 2012 re-election effort. He also says he was a volunteer media strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, making her videos more “heartfelt.” Now, he says in the video, “I will be ‘objective.’ No, I’m not. That’s why I’m there. Like, after the Clinton campaign, I’m like, no I need to get back into news and keep doing shit because, like, this isn’t going to change.”

In the Project Veritas video, he is shown expressing his ideas for bringing President Trump down: “I’d target his businesses, his dumb f**k of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric, so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. … And you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down. … He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. … He would resign.”

Trump plays tax card in fight over NFL anthem protests

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the National Football League should not be given tax breaks, stepping up his criticism of the world’s top-grossing sports league over silent player protests at games against racial injustice.

“Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.

It was not clear what exactly Trump was demanding since the NFL gave up its tax-exempt status in 2015. The White House did not reply to requests for comment.

“The idea that we received some sort of tax break is not true so there is nothing really here to give up,” the NFL’s chief spokesman, Joe Lockhart, told reporters in a teleconference.

Google, Facebook, Twitter Scramble to Hold Washington at Bay

Last month, Google summoned about 200 staff from around the world for an annual policy meeting. One agenda item was very different this time: How to deal with the sudden drumbeat of calls in the U.S. to regulate the company for being too big.

The two-day retreat in Monterey, California, where employees from the $682 billion company plied Washington policy experts with questions about the pros and cons of its size, took place as Google confronts European antitrust claims and proposed U.S. legislation that would increase online publishers’ liability for content produced by others.

This week, the Alphabet Inc. unit disclosed new information that could further roil the regulatory picture: revelations that Russian-linked accounts used its advertising network to interfere with the 2016 presidential election. The news put Google in the company of Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc., both of which are embroiled in the controversy surrounding Russia’s involvement in last year’s U.S. elections. Executives at all three companies are scrambling to respond.

Wal-Mart To Add 1,000 Grocery Pick-Up Locations

With today’s press release in mind, it is clear that Wal-Mart has picked up the glove that Amazon threw at it with the purchase of Whole Foods.

Because when it went out and bought Whole Foods, Amazon started to focus on slashing prices across the grocery store segment of its offering, slowly creeping into Wal-Mart's territory by offering ever lower prices for grocery items.

Wal-Mart, just ahead of its annual investor day, repeated its outlook for 2019 whilst adding that it would invest heavily in online sales as well. It has invested $2 billion into its online business already whilst buying a number of popular online retailers since last year (Jet.com being the most famous one of those).

New Technology Can Determine Sex, Drug Use, And Substance Particles From Decades-Old Fingerprints

https://thegoldwater.com/news/9409-New-Technology-Can-Determine-Sex-Drug-Use-And-Substance-Particles-From-Decades-Old-Fingerprints

The Sheffield Hallam University has been working with the West Yorkshire police to pioneer the revolutionary technology. Dr. Simona Francese is the project leader and says the technology has already been used to detect blood in a 30-year-old fingerprint effectively proofing its potential in solving decades-old cold cases. Dr. Francese said, "I would want to see this technology in high-profile cases such a murder or rape. It's very sophisticated, it's expensive but it's worthwhile."

The new analytical process will be used to find traces of substances on or inside the ridges of a fingerprint by vaporizing the sample and firing it through an electric and magnetic field contained inside a vacuum. Different types of particles will behave in specific ways allowing them to be identified. The process can even determine the sex of an individual based only on which proteins found in the fingerprint.

You will remember that just last year the Turkish military tried to remove President Erdogan from power in a failed coup. The Turkish government claims that Mr. Fethullah Gulen is to blame for this coup. Mr. Gulen currently lives in the US.

The outgoing US ambassador to Turkey, Mr. John Bass, called back home and warned the State Department that Turkey was arresting a US consular worker.

The United States then announced just before the weekend that it was immediately suspending the issuance of non-immigrant visas in Turkey.

Furthermore, though it is by now public knowledge that Mr. Weinstein made legal agreements with at least 8 women to pay for their silence on allegations of sexual indecency, A-list actresses like Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow have said nothing so far.

China Denies US Cyber Attack Allegations, Blames Billionaire

http://thegoldwater.com/news/9363-China-Denies-US-Cyber-Attack-Allegations-Blames-Billionaire

The government of China has denied any responsibility for cyber attacking the US, but instead is blaming billionaire tycoon Guo Wengui.

The Chinese ministry of Public Security responded to a request from the US State Department saying it has found “no evidence” of any involvement but accused the Chinese billionaire of delivering fake documents to the US: “The falsified official documents and the false information he fabricated are sensational and outrageous.”

It is interesting that they would react in this manner of course, given the fact that Mr Wengui has brought various corruption allegations against a number of senior Communist Party officials whilst at the same time applying for political asylum in the US.

It was US Attorney General Jeff Sessions who brought up the alleged cyber attacks during his meeting with China’s Public Security Minister Guo Shengkun last Wednesday.

>Model Arvida Byström, 26, is known for breaking down gender stereotypes in the fashion industry.

A Swedish model has said that since appearing in an advert for Adidas with unshaven legs, she has received numerous threats of rape.

Arvida Byström, 26, who is also an artist and photographer, stars in a video and a photograph for the sports company as part of the Adidas Originals' Superstar range.

But since the campaign was launched, Byström has been subjected to online abuse with some suggesting that she should "stop brushing your teeth and wiping your ass too fucking feminazi retarded".

The model took to Instagram to discuss the photo, saying: "Me being such an abled, white, cis body with its only nonconforming feature being a lil leg hair. Literally I've been getting rape threats in my DM inbox. I can't even begin to imagine what it's like to not possess all these privileges and try to exist in the world. Sending love and try to remember that not everybody has the same experiences being a person."

Hitler oil painting attacked by screwdriver-wielding man who slashed at canvas

AN oil painting by Adolf Hitler has been attacked in a museum by a screwdriver-wielding man.

The enraged art viewer yelled "bastard" as he tried to destroy the artwork by the fuhrer.

The Hitler artwork was hanging in the Museo di Salo, a museum in the lakeside resort of Salo on Lake Garda in Italy, as part of a travelling exhibition.

According to a museum spokesman, the perpetrator was around 40-years-old and came intending to slash the painting.

Security guards managed to prevent the man from destroying the painting, although the perpetrator managed to escape the museum premises.

The picture suffered only small bits of chipping of the colours. The owner, a private collector in Germany, decided after examining the damage not to file criminal charges.

The painting, measuring 12 by 16 inches, has no official name and features a seemingly endless dark space with gloomy colours.

In the foreground, a man sits behind a table next to a standing figure.

The signature "Adolf Hitler" sits in the bottom-right corner.

Eleven people were injured on Saturday when a car collided with pedestrians near London’s Natural History Museum, in one of the capital’s busiest tourist areas, but police doused concerns it was a terrorist attack, saying it was a road traffic incident.

Police said it was believed the car had mounted the pavement outside the popular attraction in west London and collided with a number of pedestrians.

Officers had arrested a man aged in his 40s at the scene and he was now being questioned on suspicion of dangerous driving after being taken to hospital for treatment.

Britain has suffered five attacks blamed on terrorism so far this year, three of which involved vehicles, and the incident in an area packed with tourists at the weekend had prompted concerns that the collision had been a deliberate act.

Scotland Rejects Fracking, Citing Overwhelming Public Opposition

Scotland will block fracking indefinitely after a public consultation found overwhelming opposition to the practice, the British region's energy minister said on Tuesday in a victory for environmentalists.

Scotland imposed a moratorium on fracking, the process of fracturing underground shale rock to release gas and oil, in 2015 and that will now remain for the foreseeable future.

"The decision taken today means fracking cannot and will not take place in Scotland," Paul Wheelhouse told the Scottish parliament in Edinburgh. "Taking account of available evidence and the strength of public opinion, my judgment is that Scotland should say 'no' to fracking."

The method has run into stiff opposition in many countries. Environmentalists say it causes problems including pollution of the water table, and residents of areas where fracking is being considered fear increased noise, traffic, and other impacts.

Google dropped the Pixel’s headphone jack to lay the groundwork for a bezel-free phone

Another domino has fallen in the march toward a post-headphone jack world. Today Google became the latest company to drop the once ubiquitous port from its phones, though it hardly devoted any time to its own courageous move. The driving motivation for dropping the jack is pretty clear after a quick survey of the mobile landscape: the Pixel is moving to an edge-to-edge display.

“The primary reason [for dropping the jack] is establishing a mechanical design path for the future,” Google product chief Mario Queiroz told TechCrunch after the event. “We want the display to go closer and closer to the edge. Our team said, ‘if we’re going to make the shift, let’s make it sooner, rather than later.’ Last year may have been too early. Now there are more phones on the market.”

The move was “absolutely” a driving factor in the company’s decisions to launch its own AirPod competitor, the Pixel Buds, according to Queiroz. The company essentially created an opening in the market by dropping the jack, and it was able to step right in with hardware that also helps make Assistant more ubiquitous, while turning Translate into a real world version of Douglas Adams’ Babelfish.

Journalist Kim Wall's head found in sea near Copenhagen

The head of Swedish journalist Kim Wall has been found, two months after she disappeared on a trip with a Danish submariner, Danish police say.

Divers found bags containing her head, legs and clothing in Koge Bay, just south of Copenhagen, the city's police inspector Jens Moller Jensen said.

They were found not far from where Ms Wall's torso was discovered 11 days after she boarded Peter Madsen's submarine on 10 August.

Mr Madsen, 46, denies murdering her.

He also denies a charge of mutilating her corpse.

Mr Moller Jensen said the bags, found on Friday, had been weighed down with pieces of metal.

"Yesterday morning we found a bag within which we found Kim Wall's clothes, underwear, stockings, and shoes. In the same bag laid a knife, and there were some car pipes to weigh the bag down," he said.

He said a post-mortem examination confirmed the head was Ms Wall's and that it showed "no sign of fracture… [or] any sign of other blunt violence to the skull".

This would seem to contradict Mr Madsen's statement that she had died after hitting her head on a hatch.

Did Prostitue Hired By Las Vegas Gunman See Weapons Cache

http://thegoldwater.com/news/9298-Did-Prostitue-Hired-By-Las-Vegas-Gunman-See-Weapons-Cache

An investigator briefed by federal law enforcement says clues have led them to believe that the Las Vegas gunman hired a prostitute in the days leading up to the massacre. The 64-year-old gunman, Stephen Paddock, was reportedly seen with a mystery woman in the days leading up to the massacre. Authorities now believe that woman may have been a prostitute fired by Paddock.

Federal investigators are interviewing other call girls for information that may help them locate the mystery woman. More than five days has passed since Paddock's deadly rampage and investigators are still no where closer to discovering a motive. It is known that Marilou Danley was spotted in Asia traveling at the time of the shooting and she has since returned to America so it is unlikely she was the mystery woman. Investigators say they don't think Paddock had an accomplice, but they are now considering others may have been aware of what he was planning. Besides interviewing call girls, the FBI has asked anyone with information to call them through through the use of billboards.

Mr. Haroon wrote: "NY Needs to fall. This is a must."

Federal prosecutors charging the threesome explained that Mr. Al Bahnasawy said he wanted them to “shoot up concerts cuz they kill lots of people." He then provided a list of upcoming NY concerts and bragged about picking a venue in “a concert hall that’s far away from cops.”

"We just need guns in our hands," Mr. Al Bahnasawy continued. "That's how the Paris guys did it."

Mr. Haroon agreed, adding that after the concerted attack they should get into the subway and explode their suicide vests: "When we run out of bullets we let the vests go off."

Mr. Salic then wired the two amounts of money from the Philippines and Mr. Al Bahnasawy used it to buy bomb-making material online.

The THAAD missile launch system (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) was welcomed by Saudi Arabia and according to the official statement from the Saudi Kingdom, would strengthen "U.S. national security and foreign policy interests and supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of Iranian and other regional threats."

This latest multi-billion-dollar deal will help safeguard US jobs at defense companies whilst making it very clear to the US regional partners in the Gulf that President is completely on the same line as King Salman when he considers Iran as the number one enemy of peace in the region.

The US had already sold a THAAD system to South Korea, greatly angering China in the process who said it would harm the regional arms balance in Asia.

Proponents of the bill are conveniently forgetting, however, the side and welfare of the victims- something those opposed to the said bill is taking the cudgels for.

Republican lawmakers stood their ground and voted against the bill because it puts the public at risk. Among those who opposed the bill is Senator Joel Anderson of Alpine.

Anderson took to the floor during the debate and emphatically said: “I’m of the mind that if you purposefully inflict another with a disease that alters their lifestyle the rest of their life, puts them on a regimen of medication to maintain any kind of normalcy, it should be a felony.”

Drug company allegedly flooded the US with fentanyl as opioid epidemic deepened

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/drug-company-allegedly-flooded-us-fentanyl-opioid-epidemic-deepened-1642164

New Jersey has become the latest state to sue a drug company for allegedly fraudulently pushing the deadly opioid fentanyl at doctors and patients. Fentanyl, which is 50-100 times stronger than heroin, caused the death of pop legend Prince.

Insys Therapeutics produce Subsys – an oral fentanyl spray – only intended for cancer sufferers experiencing intense "breakthrough" pain who have used opioids before and developed a tolerance.

But the firm "used every trick in the book" to increase sales by targeting those those who didn't need it, New Jersey Attorney General Christopher Porrino said.

The state claims the Insys "greed" put hundred of lives at risk and was to blame for the death of at least one person: a 32-year-old woman proscribed Subsys for her fibromyalgia.

Paddock wired surveillance cameras in the hallway of his room to alert him to the authorities presence and when Campos arrived at the shooter's room he was greeted with a hail of gunfire through the closed hotel room doors. Besides the nearly 1,000 rounds the shooter expended out of his hotel room window, he also fired 200 rounds through the door of his room when security arrived. Without any warning, bullets began flying towards Campos through the locked door and he was struck in the leg. Campos quick response likely saved dozens of lives as he drew the attention of the shooters firepower almost immediately after the shooting started. Sheriff Joe Lombardo praised Campos for his heroism, "His bravery was amazing … because he remained with our officers providing the key pass to access to the door and actually clear rooms. His officers demanded he seeks medical attention."

Officers ultimately felt Galindo was an imminent threat and two officers fired one round each into the man after he refused commands to drop the gun. His arms were technically raised at the time the shots were fired but he still grasped a handgun. Lawyers for the officers who fired the shots argued the footage should not be made public yet since it could prejudice the selection of jurors should the case go to trial. CMPD said that Galindo's demeanor and vague responses made it difficult for the Spanish speaking interpreter to determine why exactly he was calling 911. As officers originally headed to the scene, a dispatcher can be heard saying, "Any Spanish-speaking officer that could assist North Tryon on an armed person call?"

Serving Warrant Leads to Wild Chase, Carjacking, River Jump Before Suspect Is Shot

https://thegoldwater.com/news/9282-Serving-Warrant-Leads-to-Wild-Chase-Carjacking-River-Jump-Before-Suspect-Is-Shot

The chase started at around 6:30 a.m., when FBI agents and Miami- Dade police officers arrived at the Padron’s home in north Miami-Dade simply to serve a warrant connected to a September 29 Wells Fargo bank robbery on Sunset Drive. FBI acting assistant special agent in charge Justin Fleck said instead of calmly receiving the warrant, the suspect grabbed a handgun and ran from the officers. He also carjacked a resident’s brown car nearby and drove away.

The police officers gave chase and pursued Padron along several highways in Miami-Dade, following him along the Palmetto Expressway and the Gratigny Parkway during the morning rush hour.

Authorities said Padron managed to cross into the city of Miami. He then abandoned his first stolen car and carjacked another at gunpoint close to Northwest 21 Street and 14th Avenue.

The police continued the chase until Padron left the second carjacked SUV under the 27th Avenue bridge. Instead of surrendering, he opted to jump into the Miami River.

Russia's Military Is Banning Selfies Because Soldiers Keep Revealing Their Location to the Enemy

http://time.com/4971824/russian-military-bans-selfies/

Russian soldiers may soon be unable to snap a quick selfie with their brothers-in-arms.

A new draft law from Russia's Ministry of Defense bans contract soldiers and military personnel from posting on social media over fears it could reveal their location to the enemy while deployed on the battlefield, the BBC reports.

Russia's Defense Ministry warned that foreign intelligence agencies and terrorist groups could use information posted by Russian soldiers to “destabilize the internal political and social situation in various regions of the world,” according to the Moscow Times. The concern is over geolocation data — now a regular feature of most social media networks — that can be used to identify the origin of a post or photo to within a few meters. Journalists have used this data to track troop movements and confirm the location of Russian soldiers.

The death of Venezuela’s Humboldt glacier

VENEZUELA is a tropical country, with rainforest in the south and east, and baking savannah stretching towards its northern Caribbean coast. The Sierra Nevada de Mérida mountain range in the north-west offers relief from the heat. In 1991 five glaciers occupied nooks near their peaks. Now, just one remains, lodged into a cwm west of Pico Humboldt. Reduced to an area of ten football pitches, a tenth of its size 30 years ago, it will be gone within a decade or two. Venezuela will then be the first country in the satellite age to have lost all its glaciers.

The retreat of the Humboldt glacier, named for Alexander von Humboldt, a German explorer of the 19th century, is the final stage of a 20,000-year process, the recession of an ice sheet that covered 600 square km (about 230 square miles) of Venezuela in the most recent ice age. Climate change has sped it up.

The announcement came a day after The New York Times reported that Weinstein has over the years reached at least eight legal settlements with women over alleged harassment.

The EU’s budget commissioner has warned of the risk of “civil war” in Catalonia, as fears grew over a looming independence declaration and major banks prepared to relocate their headquarters.

As another day passed with no sign of dialogue and pro-independence parties pushed for the declaration of a Catalan Republic as early as Monday, Gunther Oettinger, the budget commissioner, urged the two sides to talk.

"The situation is very, very disturbing. A civil war is planned in the middle of Europe," Mr Oettinger said in Munich.

”One can only hope that a conversation will be made between Madrid and Barcelona soon,” he continued, adding that the EU could only mediate talks “if asked”.

It will be abhorrent to most, but we need to explore the use of child sex dolls for paedophiles

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/child-sex-dolls-stop-me-attacking-real-children-says-paedophile-1641674

>Can paedophiles using child sex dolls really prevent real harm coming to real children?

Since March 2016, the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the UK Border Force have seized 123 child sex dolls, and the most recent case – the jailing of David Turner – has raised further questions over their use.

One of the very real fears, as Jon Brown, head of development at the NSPCC, has said, is that "there is a risk that those using these child sex dolls or realistic props could become desensitised and their behaviour becomes normalised to them."
