Page Six source claims she is being protected by powerful foreign interests. 'She is not in the US, she moves around. She is sometimes in the UK, but most often in other countries, such as Israel, where her powerful contacts have provided her with safe houses and protection,' the source said. Maxwell is being 'protected because of the information she has on the world's most powerful people,' the source said.

Trump issued a rebuttal, writing, “Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘Obama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country.”

The news comes just days after we reported that inmates were receiving training on how to become Starbucks baristas for "job security" purposes once they are released.
Seeing the rampant success of this program, the city is also planning on setting up ex-inmates with Metrocards and burner phones upon their release. The move comes as a result of de Blasio's new bail reform law, which is supposed to incentivize inmates to show up for their court appearances. Other incentives being offered - we swear we are not making this up - are winter coats, Steve Madden shoes and Mets tickets...

The California Consumer Privacy Act goes into effect January 1st, and it doesn’t look like anyone, even the state of California itself, is totally ready. Draft regulations for enforcing the law are still being finalized at the state level... The crux of the CCPA is this: if your company buys or sells data on at least 50,000 California residents each year, you have to disclose to those residents what you’re doing with the data, and, they can request you not sell it. Consumers can also request companies bound by the CCPA delete all their personal data. And as The Wall Street Journal reported, websites with third-party tracking are supposed to add a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” button that if clicked, prohibits the site from sending data about the customer to any third parties, including advertisers...
