U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Venezuelan migrants in Colombia on Sunday as he wrapped up a four-nation tour of South America aimed at pressuring Venezuela’s socialist president, Nicolas Maduro.
Pompeo went to a migrant center in the border town of Cucuta with Colombian President Ivan Duque. Not far away, Venezuelan security forces with riot gear stood in the middle of the Simon Bolivar international bridge separating the two countries.
The image garnered widespread backlash among Twitter users, who then reported the tweet to the Secret Service.
“Threatening the President of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making ‘any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President’” said one Twitter user in a reply to the CBS account.
“@SecretService, please investigate this assassination threat against President Trump,” tweeted conservative activist Scott Presler...
The mission, called the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), uses a technique known as a kinetic impactor. It involves sending one or more high-speed spacecraft into the path of an approaching near-earth object — in this case, an asteroid. If successful, the rocket would steer the asteroid away from the Earth’s orbital path, avoiding the need for an Armageddon sequel, presumably. NASA demonstrated this on a smaller scale with the Deep Impact mission in 2005 — the name of yet another asteroid movie that we probably aren’t going to need a sequel for.
The Russians are hacking the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) on a mass scale in order to confuse thousands of ships and airplanes about where they are, according to a study by Centre for Advanced Defense (C4AD).
Law enforcement, shipping, airlines, power stations, your phone, and anything else dependent on GPS time and location synchronization, are vulnerable to GNSS hacking.
All of Britain's critical infrastructure is dependent on GNSS and GPS, according to a report commissioned by the UK Space Agency.
Russian president Putin's summer dacha is protected by a GNSS spoofing array that helps create a no-fly zone over his vast Italian-style mansion.
But local artist Carrie Woodburn told the Times the design was too “aggressive,” saying she felt it didn’t represent the community. Laguna Beach is a city of about 23,000 residents, about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles. "Folks thought it was a SWAT team, federal agents," designer Chris Prelitz observed. "So it had a very striking, strong impact, so much so that I think there might be some unintended consequences.”
Councilman Peter Blake was surprised by the backlash. He told the newspaper some people were concerned the design might worry the area's immigrants. “People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them,” he said.
The freshman congressman posted a video of his comments to NBC on Twitter, drawing attacks from numerous critics on Twitter on Saturday.
Talia Lavin, a New York University journalism professor who resigned from the New Yorker last year after she incorrectly identified a U.S. immigration agent as a Nazi sympathizer, slammed Crenshaw as “captain shithead” on Twitter. “The real victim, captain shithead, speaks,” wrote Lavin, linking to Crenshaw’s video. Freelance writer Rob Rousseau wrote to Crenshaw, “You’re deliberately lying about what [Omar] said you eyeless fuck.” The comment appears to have been removed... Eli Valley, a political cartoonist known for his anti-Israel drawings, suggested Crenshaw was a Nazi. “Wow it’s GOP-Nazy Party Terrorist Incitement Night on NBC,” wrote Valley, linking to Crenshaw’s comment.
The incident took place on January 18, 2013 following an event at the Minneapolis Convention Center featuring former Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The Somali president was set to stay the night at the Hotel Ivy, causing large groups of Somalis to follow the presidential convoy to the hotel, including Omar.
According to the police report, hotel staff requested police assistance in clearing the lobby, saying that anyone without a hotel room key was not welcome on the premises and needed to leave immediately. The officer handling the incident said the majority of people who were asked to leave were compliant. However, Omar, when approached, was “argumentative” and refused to leave.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced today the creation of a “VOICE Most Wanted” fugitives list, highlighting fugitives connected to victims and families of victims who have sought help or information from ICE through the Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office.

Law enforcement queries of Google’s massive mobile device Location History database, which employees call Sensorvault, has “risen sharply in the past six months,” the New York Times reported on Saturday, citing sources at the company... critics say it resembles a fishing expedition that raises constitutional questions under the Fourth Amendment, which restricts the scope of warrants and mandates authorities show probable cause to search...
A couple hours after the emergency teams arrived, school officials received a phone call from a student who took responsibility for the release of the chemical spray. That student now faces one allegation of criminal mischief which is a second-degree felony. Other allegations include 16 counts of assault with substantial risk of bodily injury which are class B misdemeanors and one count of disrupting a meeting-procession which is also a class B misdemeanor. Reportedly, the high school club, Turning Point USA had scheduled a speaker for that afternoon.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Sunday that he wants White House adviser Stephen Miller to testify before Congress over controversial immigration proposals, suggesting Miller is pulling the strings behind the scenes.
