The Springfield Police Department arrived on scene within three minutes of the call. Police stated that a young white male, appearing to be in his twenties, pulled up to the Walmart, where he donned body armor and military fatigues. Police say the man had tactical weapons. Police then say the man walked into the Walmart: Neighborhood Market where he grabbed a cart and began pushing it around the store. Police say the man was recording himself walking through the store via a cell phone. The store manager at the Neighborhood Market pulled a fire alarm, urging people to escape the store. Police say the man then made his way out an emergency exit where a firefighter held the man at gunpoint. At that moment Springfield Police arrived on scene and detained the man.
In late September 2016, Ohr describes a person (likely Christopher Steele) as “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being the U.S. President.” “Ohr knew that [Fusion GPS’s] Glen Simpson and others talking to Victoria Nuland at the U.S. State Department”... On December 5, 2016, Ohr promised to “voluntarily” give his wife Nellie Ohr’s Fusion GPS research to the FBI. He also provided the FBI with a report on Paul Manafort titled, “Manafort Chronology”... Steele also stated that he was limited in “his ability to testify before Congress” because of disclosure laws in the UK being more narrow than the United States.
...“This new Bruce Ohr FBI 302s show an unprecedented and irregular effort by the FBI, DOJ, and State Department to dig up dirt on President Trump using the conflicted Bruce Ohr, his wife, and the Clinton/DNC spies at Fusion GPS,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The FISA courts weren’t informed of this corrupted process when they were asked to approve and reapprove extraordinary spy warrants targeting President Trump.”

A letter from the lawmakers, addressed to Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray,... the senators decry a "growing" domestic terrorism threat and noted one of the attacks was reportedly carried out by a "white man motivated by racist and anti-immigrant hatred."... They pressed Barr and Wray to enumerate what steps their agencies had taken to respond to white supremacist violence. The Justice Department did not immediately return a request for comment on the letter Thursday morning...
Every news story about right-wing violence or “white supremacy”-linked violence is based on the same set of joke studies that count each and every murder involving a supposedly racist white person, no matter how ridiculous the circumstances, as racially motivated.
...when white people kill their own family members, even their own babies, that’s the kind of “white supremacy”-linked violence the Anti Defamation League is looking at. It’s not a rash of Ku Klux Klan members lynching blacks and Latino immigrants in the streets.
NBC Universal still plans to release the controversial movie “The Hunt” as scheduled on September 27 despite significant backlash over the film that depicts privileged vacationers hunting “deplorables” for sport... NBC’s Universal Pictures, which shares parent company Comcast with NBC News and MSNBC, told Fox News on Wednesday that the movie’s marketing campaign would be “temporarily paused” on the heels tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Universal Pictures declined further comment on Thursday... The Hollywood Reporter reported on Tuesday that the “violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals”... The movie has caused outrage, with conservatives calling it everything from “political violence” to “sick murder fantasies about right-wingers.”
Embarrassing! The black hand was caught red-handed! Leaders of "HK independence" organization met with Julie Eadeh of US Consulate General in HK. She is a subversion expert at the State Department. The Chinese people are not afraid of evil, nor are they afraid of causing trouble. pic.twitter.com/svtrbJC0Z8
There were reports suggesting Julie Eadeh is a trained subversion expert at the US consulate in Hong Kong. Her meeting with HK protesters would be evidence of US inciting and instigating the riots in Hong Kong. Is she under the direct order of former CIA chief Mike Pompeo? pic.twitter.com/jHazIpMM4K
A lawsuit was filed on Wednesday against Cincinnati's Institute for Reproductive Health, The Christ Hospital and Ovation Fertility claims another man's sperm was used to create the embryo. Attorneys for Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane, who are representing the family, says Rebecca's biological father may actually be a doctor at The Christ Hospital... In 1993, the Cartellones went to the Institute of Reproductive Health after struggling to conceive. After considering their options, decided to undergo in vitro fertilization. Dr Sherif Awadalla, the medical director of the institute's medical director, retrieved eggs from Jennifer and promised to fertilize them with Cartellone's sperm... For Christmas 2018, Rebecca, now 24, gifted her family at-home DNA test kits from Ancestry.com. The results came back in February showing that Rebecca shared none of her father's genetic make-up. A separate paternity test confirmed the two were not related in March.
Dayton gunman Connor Betts' depraved appetite for murder, drugs and Satanism is laid bare in series of chilling journal entries obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com. The warped loner, 24, declares himself a servant of 'evil incarnate' and rants about everything from schizophrenia to satanic rituals and massacres... The frightening pages were revealed by a former friend who paints a confounding picture of Betts as a frequent methamphetamine smoker who played violent video games - but was never a racist or interested in weapons... As cops search for a motive, friends and acquaintances have come forward to speak of a troubled young man whose 'dark thoughts' scared even himself.
Two other people knowledgeable about the discussions also confirmed the existence of the draft order.
None of the three people could say what penalties, if any, the order would envision for companies deemed to be censoring political viewpoints. The order, which deals with other topics besides tech bias, is still in the early drafting stages and is not expected to be issued imminently...
The leader of Italy's ruling League party, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, declared the governing coalition to be unworkable on Thursday after months of internal bickering and said the only way forward was to hold fresh elections.
The shock announcement follows a period of intense public feuding between the right-wing League and its coalition partner, the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, and it throws the euro zone's third-largest economy into an uncertain political future.
Salvini said in a statement he had told Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, who belongs to neither coalition party, that the alliance with 5-Star had collapsed after barely a year in power and "we should quickly give the choice back to the voters"...
A New Britain man contracted flesh-eating bacteria and had to have his leg amputated after swimming at Hammonasset Beach State Park, according to his family. Bruce Kagan, 68, was admitted to The Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain on June 30 after he began to feel sick... He had gone swimming at Hammonasset a few days earlier with a cut on his right leg he got while at work. His family believes that is how he contracted the bacteria.
Their presence is directly linked to temperature and salinity, being most abundant in warm (17-35 °C), brackish (5-25 ppt.) waters. Because of Florida’s warm climate, Vibrio are present in areas of the IRL year-round. V. vulnificus is most likely to be encountered in stagnant, inshore waters (especially near freshwater discharge) rather than in the ocean due to their inability to tolerate high salinities.
The lawsuit is the second this week from an ex-FBI official challenging the circumstances of his termination. McCabe was fired after a Justice Department inspector general report found that he had misstated his involvement in a news media disclosure regarding an FBI investigation. The watchdog office referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, which has been investigating. McCabe has denied any wrongdoing.
Interfax is reporting that the former president has been detained after a second raid, echoed by local media outlets stating the former president has surrendered. On Wednesday evening, Kyrgyz special forces attempted to detain Atambayev, who has been ignoring multiple subpoenas from the Interior Ministry. The raid went poorly, with the former president’s supporters rushing to his defense. The State National Security Committee (SCNS or GKNB) released a statement saying that its forces were equipped with rubber bullets, but Atambayev’s supporters fired back with weapons of their own. The fighting left one dead from a gunshot wound... and another senior police official in a coma. Eighty sustained injuries, according to Health Ministry officials. Atambayev’s supporters also took half a dozen special forces troops hostage, releasing them late in the day on August 8.
The Monmouth University poll surveyed likely Iowa primary voters and gave Yang the fourth poll he needed to qualify for the September debate. Yang’s campaign said he already met the number of unique donors, 130,000, that the Democratic National Committee stipulated for candidates to be allowed on stage. Yang’s qualification came after Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) recently became the eighth person to qualify. The other seven are: former Vice President Joe Biden, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), and Senators Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
A number of better-known candidates, including a slew of officeholders, have thus far failed to meet at least one of the benchmarks for the next round of debates. That includes New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (R-Hawaii), and former Obama administration official Julian Castro. The DNC announced that candidates will need to receive 2 percent or more support in at least four national polls or polls in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and/or Nevada.
