Malaysian Prime Minister Fumes "Obviously We Have Been Cheated By Goldman Sachs"

Goldman Sachs famously avoided liability after the Libyan Investment Authority accused the bank of squandering more than $1.5 billion belonging to the country's sovereign wealth fund after the bank plied employees of the fund with "hookers and five-star hotels" before losing all of their money in complex derivatives trades.

But as the DOJ ramps up an investigation into the bank's role in the sprawling 1MDB scandal (the federal government believes Goldman helped now-jailed former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak siphon $4.5 billion from the fund), it's looking like the bank (and possibly its ex-CEO Lloyd Blankfein, whose involvement in the scandal was recently revealed by Bloomberg) may not escape culpability this time.

What was supposed to be a generous gesture is turning into a real financial nightmare for Germans who took on the responsibility of assisting Syrian refugees in obtaining asylum.

More than seven thousand Germans who signed guarantor obligations in a bid to help Syrian refugees obtain asylum are suing the state, which has demanded that it have its expenses reimbursed for their medical insurance, housing and other needs, Deutsche Welle reported.

Trump Launches Massive Twitter Crusade Against Macron Amid EU Army Row

The fresh tweets came just a few days after US President Donald Trump dismissed his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron's idea of building a "true European army" as "insulting" and insisted that European states should first pay their fair share for NATO.

After returning from the Remembrance Day commemoration in Paris, where Donald Trump held a bilateral meeting with Emmanuel Macron, the US President launched into a Twitter tirade against his French counterpart, criticising his idea to build an EU army to protect the continent "with respect to China, Russia and even the United States":

The video was released by Canadian right-wing activist, author and internet personality, Lauren Southern, and will be a part of her new documentary film project 'Borderless,' which takes on the European migration crisis.

Brenda Snipes Could Depart as Broward Elections Chief: ‘It Is Time to Move On’

Embattled Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes suggested that “it is time to move on” from her time in office.

Snipes was asked about a tweet made by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush this week, who called on her to be ‘removed from her office following the [vote] recounts.” Bush appointed Snipes to the position in 2003 to fill the remainder of a term in office of Miriam Oliphant, who was removed over “incompetence” following elections in 2002.

California: Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site That State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up

Last night, the Woolsey fire burned the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL), a former nuclear and rocket engine testing site. Footage from local television showed flames surrounding rocket test stands, and the fire’s progress through to Oak Park indicates that much of the toxic site burned.

A statement released by the California Dept. of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) said that its staff,

“do not believe the fire has caused any releases of hazardous materials that would pose a risk to people exposed to the smoke.”

The statement failed to assuage community concerns given DTSC’s longtime pattern of misinformation about SSFL’s contamination and its repeated broken promises to clean it up.

California's Gov. Brown Again Blames Fires On Global Warming — He Couldn't Be More Wrong

California once again is burning, with hundreds of thousands of tinder-dry acres going up in flames. Gov. Jerry Brown says it's global warming. President Trump blames forest mismanagement. Who's right?

On Saturday, Trump tweeted: "There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!"

Brown's take was, well, different: "Managing all the forests in everywhere we can does not stop climate change," he said. "And those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies that we're now witnessing, and will continue to witness in the coming years."

JUST IN: STUNNING VIDEO Shows Election Worker Moving Boxes In Front Of Women Counting Broward Co Votes To HIDE Them From Public View

Was there another non-political witness who confirmed the partisan hack, Sheriff Israel’s findings or are we supposed to just believe him?

Now, in what is truly a remarkable act of defiance and non-transparency, a worker inside the area where "counted" ballots are being stuffed into bags, is alerted by workers on the floor, who are stuffing bags with ballots, that someone behind the observation windows (with emphasis on the word "observation") was videotaping the workers inside. The worker immediately springs into action and begins to moves a variety of boxes in front of the workers to conceal what they are doing from outside observers.

It’s time for the DOJ to step in and take control of this out-of-control process. Our elections are too important to be left up to a bunch of hack activists. Watch the video below and call to get the DOJ involved immediately!

Southern California's wildfire roars back to life again and prompts new evacuations as 'hurricane-force gusts' and dry conditions continue threat looming over area

Just when it seemed things were finally starting to calm down, Southern California's huge wildfire has roared back to life again.

A massive plume rose suddenly in the Santa Monica Mountains on Tuesday morning, prompting new evacuations at the same time thousands of residents are being allowed back in their neighborhoods.

Authorities sent aircraft to drop retardant and water on the new blaze as it broke out near the community of Lake Sherwood.

Forecasters had warned of continuing fire danger in Southern California due to persistent Santa Ana winds, the withering, dry gusts that sweep out of the interior toward the coast, pushing back moist ocean breezes.

Broward County Deputy Says Civil Rights Attorneys Were Handing Out Absentee Ballots to Inmates AFTER ELECTION

Annie Marie Delgado, President of TrumpTeam Florida 2020, conference called Ann Vandersteel with a a current DOJ employee and was a former high ranking Broward County law enforcement officer. He stated at 7:00 AM that same morning he received a call from a deputy in the Broward County jail. The Deputy said there was “corruption going on inside the jail and that he had never seen anything like it.”

Six months prior to this the Supervisor of Elections allowed non-felon inmates awaiting trial in jail to register to vote. This did not occur due to the security risk it posed if civilians were allowed to walk through the jail doing the voter registration and absentee ballot requests.

It was previously reported that mass murdered Nikolas Cruz was registered to vote from jail in Broward County.

After clashes with first lady and others, Kelly may soon exit White House

Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, is among those being considered for the job, three of the people said, though President Donald Trump has mused about other possible candidates.

Melania Trump has ensured the departure of one White House official, deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel, after she had a series of run-ins with the first lady’s office.

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, issued a pointed statement on Tuesday saying as much. “It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” Grisham said.

North Korea Warns US-South Korea Drills Violate Agreement

While there has been a lot of progress in recent months on improving ties on the Korean Peninsula, North Korea’s state media warned on Monday that the resumption of military drills between the US and South Korea violated a recent agreement.

On September 19, North and South Korea signed an agreement which was intended to bar either side from taking any action that might be perceived as hostile. This was intended to include military exercises with the US.

The US wasn’t a party to this deal, which was between the Koreas. They have, however, gone out of their way to reduce the number of wargames being conducted in South Korea. As tensions have risen recently, however, the US may be looking to conduct more such exercises.

South Korea downplayed the complaints, not directly denying that they weren’t violating the agreement, but rather insisting that the exercises was very small.and purely defensive.

Taliban Slaughter Elite Afghan Troops, as ‘Safe’ District Is Falling

With the Taliban carrying out offensives against several provinces around the country at any given time, the Afghan government has been forced to prioritize who gets reinforcements. This weekend, that meant sending special forces to the Jaghori District of Ghazni. The Shi’ite dominated district was long seen as “safe.”

That’s not panning out, however, as the Taliban are not only routing Shi’ite militias, but defeating the reinforcements as well, killing at least 25 commandos and continuing to advance deeper into the district.

On the surface, the district is only important in that it gives the Taliban a route to attack the important provincial capital, which it has long contested. It may be more significant, however, in that the reinforcement strategy is failing.

Saudi-Led Attacks on Yemen Port Escalate; 150 Killed in 24 Hours

Heavy fighting between invading Saudi-backed forces and the Shi’ite Houthi movement continues to escalate, with medics saying at least 150 people killed on Monday in just a 24 hour span. This is an increase of weeks of deadly fighting in and around the vital port city of Hodeidah.

Hodeidah is the main aid port into Yemen, and the last port under Houthi control. This means it is effectively the source of food for millions of Yemenis in the Houthi-controlled north, and aid groups warn the fall of the port could lead to famine.

The death toll is rising as the fighting moves deeper into the city, and its residential areas. The fall of the city’s main hospital over the weekend led to medical staff fleeing the area, and thousands of civilians remain trapped in the neighborhoods nearby.

Various international reports have cited over 300 rockets and mortars fired into Israeli, which began with a sustained barrage of about 100 within the first hour of the launches alone. What's been dubbed as a "revenge" attack on heels of Monday funeral prayers for slain Hamas commanders killed by Israeli special forces were quickly met with widespread airstrikes on the strip, including on a Hamas television broadcast building, and some 70 targets in total across the strip.

According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau data, the U.S. trade deficit will almost certainly set a record in 2018 for the first time in 12 years , new data suggests for the first time.

It's been a remarkable run without a deficit. To provide context, prior to 2006, the last record-setting year, the United States had set a record 11 of the previous 12 years.

It is also not without irony that the run of years without a deficit would come to an end under President Trump.

Trump, first as a candidate and since as president, has complained loudly and vociferously about how other countries, particularly but not exclusively China, have taken advantage of the United States, leading to large trade deficits.

NASA Scientist Warns: The Lack Of Sunspots Could Bring Record Cold

“The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age,” wrote Dr. Tony Phillips just six weeks ago, on September 27, 2018. The lack of sunspots on our sun could bring about record cold temperatures, and perhaps even a mini ice age.

Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018 and Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding, says Phillips, the editor of spaceweather.com. “The bad news,” according to Phillips, is: “It also delays the natural decay of space junk, resulting in a more cluttered environment around Earth.”

“It could happen in a matter of months,” says Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center on the cold snap that may be coming. “If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold,” says Mlynczak. “We’re not there quite yet,” he said.

Russia and China's 'attack on Google': Virtual wargame 'experiment' hits search giant with 'worst ever' internet hijack that intercepted search, cloud and business services

Google has been hit by the 'worst ever' internet hijack in the company's history, security experts say.

Information from users' Google searches, cloud-hosting services and the company's bundle of collaboration tools for businesses - known as G Suite - were all affected.

Data belonging to users across the globe was intercepted by servers in Nigeria, China and Russia - including those run by major state-owned telecoms providers.

Security experts suggested the hack was a 'wargame experiment' - meaning it may prelude similar, more wide-scale attacks from the nations involved in future.

Google is downplaying Monday's incident, saying it does not believe it was malicious, but has failed to allay fears that the personal data of millions of users may have been compromised.

A new type of court case has been slowly but steadily emerging within the American legal system: alleged crimes being detected from data supplied by smart devices. The very nature of the 1st, 4th and 5th Amendments to the Constitution appears to be at stake.

A New Hampshire judge appears ready to demand that Amazon turn over recordings from the home where two women were allegedly stabbed to death by Timothy Verrill. Verrill has pleaded not guilty, and this appears to be the first case in the state of New Hampshire where a judge is willing to summon data from a smart device – an Amazon Echo speaker – as evidence that could be central to a trial. The implications of this have also been stated by legal experts...
