A plume of smoke rose over central Kabul shortly after midnight and sirens could be heard. Inside the embassy, employees heard this message over the loudspeaker: "An explosion caused by a rocket has occurred on compound."
Officials gave the all-clear about an hour after the blast and reported no injuries...
A bombshell revelation was barely noticed at National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s hearing Tuesday, when his counsel revealed in court the existence of a Justice Department memo from Jan. 30, 2017 exonerating Flynn of any collusion with Russia.The memo, which has still not been made available to Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell, is part of a litany of Brady material she is demanding from prosecutors. The memo is currently under protective order and Powell is working with prosecutors to get it disclosed, SaraACarter.com has learned...
Michael Flynn’s counsel revealed Tuesday in court the existence of a DOJ memo from 1/30/17 exonerating Flynn of any collusion with Russia. Refill your popcorn if you’re low!
It also featured the phone numbers and other contact information for a number of prominent figures, including former White House strategist Steve Bannon, Blackwater founder Erik Prince, and several phone numbers for Trump, including one listed as his cell.
But on Monday morning, the entry for the memo was missing from the court docket... The White House did not respond to a request for comment, and Stone’s attorneys declined or did not return requests for comment...
Isn't it funny how Roger Stone publicly disses Bannon, but behind the scenes they are friends? Remember when Stone identified "17" fbi vehicles during the raid of his home? Not 10, not 15 or 20, specifically 17. I think you know where we're going with this.
Andrew Kowalczyk, 44, was also sentenced to a life term of supervised release after years of litigation and attempts to obstruct justice, including soliciting the murder of an assistant U.S. attorney... The mother of the victims testified that Kowalczyk bought her girls, then 8 and 2-year-old twins, toys, clothing, diapers, shoes and even a birthday cake with their names on it. He also paid for their Portland, Ore., hotel rooms and would regularly babysit the children while the mother looked for work, according to court documents.
...They found his cameras and a hard drive that contained 650 child pornography images and videos. Several files showed him sexually abusing two very young children and metadata embedded in some of the digital images revealed they were taken using the camera found in Kowalczyk's luggage.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Puerto Rico said Tuesday that the president of Cobra Acquisitions, Donald Keith Ellison, gave FEMA’s deputy regional director airline flights, hotel accommodations, personal security services and the use of a credit card. In return, Ahsha Nateef Tribble “used any opportunity she had to benefit Cobra,” said U.S. Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodríguez, including accelerating payments to the company and pressuring power authority officials to award it contracts. According to the indictment, Ellison lavished Tribble with helicopter tours over Puerto Rico, hotel rooms in Fort Lauderdale and first-class airfare from San Juan to New York. Ellison also gave a job to a friend of Tribble, Jovanda Patterson, who had been FEMA deputy chief of staff in Puerto Rico before resigning in July 2018 to work for Cobra Energy, according to the indictment. In return, Tribble, who was FEMA’s primary leader in trying to restore electric power after Maria, lobbied to secure more contracts for Cobra, according to the indictment.
... the team of Russian, Swiss, British, American and Finnish scientists was developing polysulfur heterocycles to tackle cancer when they suddenly realized the implications of the drug’s mechanism were much bigger than anticipated... “The importance of the results is that the same drugs can be used for different types of diseases (cancer, HIV, etc.),”said Oleg Rakitin, doctor of chemistry and professor at SUSU. The mechanism that neutralizes HIV essentially snipes the zinc atom from the HIV virus molecules, thus deactivating them and rendering the virus inert.
A new version of Monopoly wants to show women what life is like on the other side of the gender pay gap. Called Ms. Monopoly, the new variant of the never-ending Hasbro board game gives female players a financial advantage over their male opponents in what appears to be some sort of misguided attempt to champion female empowerment.
In the game, female players will collect $240 when passing “Go,” while male players will collect the usual $200 as in the original version of the game. This, says Hasbro, provides “a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men.”
It’s definitely an “everything and the kitchen sink” type concept: big, chunky 22-inch wheels; a powerful battery with 400 to 500 kilometers (248.5 to 310.7 miles) of off-road range; huge, wraparound windshield; hammock-style rear seats; a phone port on the steering column; suicide doors; and on-road Level 4 autonomous capabilities (meaning the vehicle can drive itself within a defined geographic area).
Oh, did I mention this thing has drones for headlights? Yeah, that’s right: drones that fly ahead of the vehicle to light the way. Extravagant? Absolutely. Impractical? Most certainly. Nonetheless rad as hell? You bet...
The hard-line group has elected Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) to be the new Freedom Caucus chief, replacing the current chairman, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.). Meadows, a founding Freedom Caucus member and one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill, will step down on Oct. 1 but is expected to remain on the group’s board.
The deal is driven in part by Mayo’s desire to expand its use of artificial intelligence, which relies on modern computing environments where data can be securely shared and manipulated by physicians and researchers. While large portions of Mayo’s clinical data will be stored in Google’s cloud, hospital officials emphasized that Mayo will control access to that information...
Laughably, the New York Times says, “The informant’s information was so delicate, and the need to protect the source’s identity so important, that the C.I.A. director at the time, John O. Brennan … sent separate intelligence reports … in special sealed envelopes to the Oval Office.” Yet Brennan himself compromised this source through his authorship of the DNI report.
CNN now admits it “initially withheld” information “which adds further understanding to the value of the informant” and that “was subsequently reported by the New York Times.”...
“Around 12:45 p.m., a derailment occurred in Union Pacific’s Dupo Yard near Carondelet Avenue between Main and Adams Road. Both crossings are closed. The train was being built for departure at the time of the derailment, which caused a tank car to catch fire. Initial information from the scene indicates that the tank car contains a flammable liquid called methyl isobutyl ketone. It is typically used as a solvent. Union Pacific is working with area first responders to put out the fire. Our yard and nearby intermodal ramp were safely evacuated. At this time, no injuries have been reported.”
Brittany Bramell, the CIA director of public affairs, told CNN:
“CNN’s narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false. Misguided speculation that the President’s handling of our nation’s most sensitive intelligence—which he has access to each and every day—drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate.” [..]
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said,
“CNN’s reporting is not only incorrect, it has the potential to put lives in danger.”
While dismissing some claims, US District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco said users could try to hold Facebook liable under various federal and state laws for letting app developers and business partners harvest their personal data without their consent on a “widespread” basis. He rejected Facebook’s arguments that users suffered no “tangible” harm and had no legitimate privacy interest in information they shared with friends on social media.
It’s been an interesting few days for Flynn. Friday, the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) sent a 5-page letter commanding Flynn to comply with a subpoena by appearing before the Committee on Sept. 25. Predating that demand by just a few days, Flynn’s defense team filed a motion which argued that his prosecution team had engaged in “malevolent conduct” by withholding exculpatory evidence... While Powell said that it was her intent to show that the whole case should be dismissed due to prosecutors’ “egregious” misconduct, she didn’t completely rule out a motion to withdraw Flynn’s guilty plea. To be clear, Powell said “I don’t think [where this is going is] a motion to withdraw the plea,” she didn’t say “no, that will never happen.”
