Trump's Jerusalem move: 'A blunder with consequences'

President Donald Trump's decision to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem is a blunder driven by domestic US politics, but with international strategic consequences, Middle East analysts and former US diplomats say.

The US president, shortly after coming into office nearly a year ago, had raised some hopes of a renewed Middle East peace process by holding a series of meetings with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in Washington, Bethlehem and New York.

But last week, Trump announced that the US is formally recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital and will begin the process of moving the US embassy to the city from Tel Aviv, raising doubts from the Palestinians, as well as Middle East analysts about the US' role as a broker of a potential peace deal.

Unemployment insurance claims in Alaska are at ‘historic lows’

While Alaska has lost jobs in the current state recession, claims for unemployment insurance have fallen to "historic lows," according to the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Typically, the opposite is true: Claims for unemployment benefits usually increase when employment goes down and the unemployment rate goes up.

But "since the fourth week of 2017, the (insured unemployment rate) has been at a record-setting low compared to the same week in any prior year," the labor department said in a report released this month. "This means the fewest people ever are receiving unemployment benefits, when adjusted for the size of the covered workforce."

So what's going on?

Up to 'ONE BEEELLION' vid-stream gawpers toil in crypto-coin mines

Security experts claim four extremely popular video-streaming websites have been secretly loaded with crypto-currency-crafting code.

According to AdGuard, the massive Monero-mining operation was discovered when ad-blocking plugin developer was fine-tuning its ad blockers to catch and block sites that attempt to hijack web surfers' spare CPU cycles for mining.

"While analyzing the first complaints, we came across several VERY popular websites that secretly use the resources of users' devices for cryptocurrency mining," AdGuard cofounder Andrey Meshkov explained this week.

"According to SimilarWeb, these four sites register 992 million visits monthly. And the total monthly earnings from crypto-jacking, taking into account the current Monero rate, can reach $326,124.85."

AdGuard says the sites – openload, Streamango, Rapidvideo, and OnlineVideoConverter – are often linked for other pages as embedded players, increasing their reach over hundreds of millions of visitors.

Password Stealing Apps With Over A Million Downloads Found On Google Play Store

Even after so many efforts by Google like launching bug bounty program and preventing apps from using Android accessibility services, malicious applications somehow manage to get into Play Store and infect people with malicious software.

The same happened once again when security researchers discovered at least 85 applications in Google Play Store that were designed to steal credentials from users of Russian-based social network VK.com and were successfully downloaded millions of times.

The most popular of all masqueraded as a gaming app with more than a million downloads. When this app was initially submitted in March 2017, it was just a gaming app without any malicious code, according to a blog post published Tuesday by Kaspersky Lab.

However, after waiting for more than seven months, the malicious actors behind the app updated it with information-stealing capabilities in October 2017.

British Man Still Using Christmas Lights Purchased 48 Years Ago

When Ross Shaddick puts up the lights on his Christmas tree at home, he takes pride in the fact that they’re a decade older than he is.

Even more incredible, not a single bulb has been changed.

The 38-year-old Shaddick lives in Plymouth, England, and says his mom bought the lights back in 1969 for a whopping 3 pounds ? the equivalent of around $58 in 2017.

Although the lights came with a spare set of bulbs, Shaddick says he’s never needed to replace them, according to the British news agency South West News Service.

By comparison, he bought some LED Christmas lights two years ago for around $25, and they’re already on the fritz.

A review of the texts between senior FBI agent Peter Strzok and senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page were sent to lawmakers Tuesday night. The texts are the subject of an ethics investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general, and they show the senior officials repeatedly offering harsh opinions about political figures. Among many other comments, the two called Trump “an idiot.”

AL Election Stolen by the Democrats via PervasiveVoting Fraud, Recount Demanded, Courts OrdersBallots Destroyed

As it turns out, write in votes were all going to Moore and they suddenly flipped for Jones. This has triggered official suspicions that the election was stolen. Add to this the fact that purely black areas suddenly stopped turning in enough votes to push Jones way ahead once he was a little bit ahead makes things look very suspicious. It was obviously calculated, and not a legitimate count.

There are rumors about the write-in ballots being thrown out due to the obvious tampering. At latest reporting that I have seen, Moore is only 4,000 away from Jones. An impossible razors edge. If the write-ins that got stolen are discarded, Moore will win, but there will still be an automatic recount. How that is managed will determine it all, if the ballots are still present and there are enough witnesses, major fraud may get busted.

How John McCain Delivered Clinton’s Phony Dossier to the FBI

In January of this year, after the infamous Trump/Russia “dossier” had been made public through news reports and a full publication on BuzzFeed News, we learned that Sen. John McCain was at least partially responsible for putting the information in the hands of the FBI. In a statement to Fox News, McCain tried to downplay his role in creating or disseminating the dossier, which has since proven to be a work of fiction developed, paid for, and peddled by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

White House pumps brake after Rex Tillerson says no 'precondition' for North Korea talks

The Trump administration pumped the brakes after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson indicated a shift in policy towards North Korea, telling a gathering in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday that the State Department is willing to talk with officials from Pyongyang “without precondition."

A statement from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said President Trump's views on North Korea, which has repeatedly threatened the U.S. with its missile and nuclear weapons programs, "have not changed."

"North Korea is acting in an unsafe way not only toward Japan, China, and South Korea, but the entire world," Sanders said. "North Korea's actions are not good for anyone and certainly not good for North Korea."

Just two weeks after North Korea once again put the world on nuclear war alert by launching its most advanced Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) to date - which experts believe could reach New York or D.C. with a nuclear payload - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in surprising statements Tuesday indicated that the US would be willing to hold talks with North Korea without any preconditions.

And it appears the North may have already responded to the overture: according to comments from UN political affairs chief Feltman crossing the Reuters wire on Tuesday evening:

N.Korea agrees "it is important to avoid war. "
We have left the door open for negotiations.
N.Korea did not offer any type of commitment to talks.

Bill O’Reilly Claims Women Paid $200k to Make Harassment Claim Against Donald Trump

In an appearance on Glenn Beck’s radio program, the former Fox News host made a sensational claim. According to O’Reilly, his team of investigators discovered a tape in which a lawyer offers a woman $200,000 to “accuse Donald Trump of untoward behavior.”

Here’s what he says: “It exists. We have urged the person who has the tape to hand it over to the U.S. attorney, because my investigative team believes there are three separate crimes on the audio tape.”

O’Reilly then answered if he’ll release the tape himself. Here’s what he said: “I may have to go to the U.S. attorney myself. I don’t want to have to do that and inject myself into the story, but I had my lawyer listen to the tape. … There are at least three crimes on the tape. So as a citizen, I may have to do this.”

Alabama court gives last-minute order that could impede recount procedure

Controversy swirled over the mechanics of the Alabama Senate election after the state supreme court intervened at the eleventh hour to give election officials a green light not to preserve electronic ballot records that could form the basis of a recount.

A court in Montgomery, the state capital, issued an injunction on Monday afternoon ordering election officials around the state to preserve digital images of the ballots cast by Alabama voters in the hard-fought contest between controversial Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones.

But the supreme court stayed that injunction almost immediately following a protest lodged by Alabama’s chief election official, the secretary of state, John Merrill. Voting rights experts denounced the ruling as a blow to transparency in a state that already has a flawed vote recount procedure and a somewhat checkered history of questionable election outcomes that the state’s senior officials and courts have allowed to go unchallenged.

'F TRUMP': Texts between ex-Mueller team members emerge, calling Trump 'loathsome human,' 'an idiot'

Text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in 2016 that were obtained by Fox News on Tuesday refer to then-candidate Donald Trump as a "loathsome human" and "an idiot."

More than 10,000 texts between Strzok and Page were being reviewed by the Justice Department after Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe after it was revealed that some of them contained anti-Trump content.

The messages were sent during the 2016 campaign and contain discussions about various candidates. On March 2, Strzok texted Page that someone "asked me who I’d vote for, guessed [Ohio Gov. John] Kasich."

Israel minister threatens Arab MKs: ‘There will be a time when you won’t be here’

“Every day in the Middle East some 400 people are murdered in Arab countries, with close to 1,000 people wounded,” Lieberman said during the debate. “In Yemen 160 people are being murdered every day. Who cares? Look at how many terror attacks there are every day. Is someone talking about war crimes? Those who are sitting here are war criminals, the entire Joint List are war criminals.”

The minister’s remarks came just a day after he had attacked the Palestinian residents of the Wadi Ara area of the country, saying they “do not belong to the State of Israel”.

According to its fans, the Guardian is the world’s leading “progressive” news outlet. A place full of latter-day Sydney Schanbergs shining light where darkness prevails. They contend it stands apart from the corporate press, due to being controlled by the Scott Trust, and cite its open-access website as proof of its commitment to freedom of information. Successful campaigns on gay marriage and transgender rights are also used to illustrate how the paper often captures the zeitgeist.

Criticism after Danish school cancels Christmas to avoid ‘preaching’ to non-Christian children

Parents of local children, education officials and leading Danish politicians have criticized a primary school after it chose to cancel the traditional Christmas service, due to the presence of students of immigrant backgrounds.

"We took the decision because we have children who are not Protestant,” Marianne Vederso Schmidt, the head of Gribskolen in Graested, a town of fewer than 5,000 people in eastern Denmark, wrote in an intranet posting earlier this month.

Schmidt noted that the decision may have been overdue, as the education law forbids preaching “and it must be left to the individual families whether they want to privately attend a service.”

"This is not the way a government should be managed, this is not the way a country should be managed and everyone knows it's only going to get worse. Compromises are carried out at our expense, so when it starts smelling like elections, simply call for elections and don't spring something new on the public every week," Gabbay criticized.
