Clinton & Trump: The Wealthiest Candidates Have The Most Bad-Credit Supporters

You can learn a lot from someone’s credit score. For example, people with excellent credit are more likely to prefer Taylor Swift to Kanye West and Charlie Rose to all other nighttime TV hosts. They’re probably in decent shape, too, as there’s a strong correlation between exercise frequency and credit health. The bad-credit crowd, on the other hand, likes hip-hop, soccer and James Corden. And they might also have a full household, considering that 37% of folks with 4+ children have bad credit scores.

90-year-old Florida man arrested for second time in a week after feeding the homeless again

Not everything has to be regulated. Not everything has to be codified and signed off on by the red tape gurus. Life CAN happen just fine without such interference. And when the government is stopping a man from feeding the hungry, rest assured something is very wrong with the regulations, the codes, and the local bureaucrats.

Mentally ill man dies without water in solitary confinement in Milwaukee jail

A mentally ill black man who died in a Milwaukee prison in April suffered from severe dehydration, a medical examiner concluded. Inmates said he was begging for drinking water days before perishing in custody. Terrill Thomas, 38, was sent to jail after two shooting episodes in which he allegedly was involved on April 14. In one he shot his best friend in the chest after suspecting him of trying to steal Thomas’s car. In another one hours later, Thomas opened fire at Potawatomi Bingo Casino and told everyone to leave. After being arrested, he told investigators there were a lot of snakes in the casino and it looked suspicious. Thomas suffered from bipolar disorder and, according to his family, had experienced a mental breakdown at the time of his arrest. His mother asked the police to take him into custody, saying her son had become violent and erratic.

DHS Accused of Sitting on Damning Border Report as Immigration Issue Drives Presidential Race

Federal lawmakers seeking to pinpoint the number of illegal immigrants who successfully sneak across the southern border ordered up a report from the Department of Homeland Security, but the agency refuses to release it and instead cites a misleading statistic that overstates the number who are nabbed, sources told Fox News. DHS denied it is holding back the report, but sources say it was completed in November and that it shows roughly half of adults who attempt to cross the border make it – approximately 250,000 in total.

Facebook censored a live stream video posted by Dakota pipeline protester; blames inadvertent removal on its automated spam filter

Facebook has admitted to censoring a video posted by activists protesting the Dakota Access pipeline, with the social network blaming the removal on its automated spam filter. The live stream video, published on Tuesday by the media collective Unicorn Riot, showed police arresting around two dozen protesters at a Dakota pipeline site. Unicorn Riot published a link to the live stream on its Facebook page, but the URL was blocked and other users were unable to share it. The link has since been restored, and a Facebook spokesperson apologized for the removal in a statement to Motherboard.

FBI Agent Posing as Journalist to Deliver Malware to Suspect Was Fine, Says DOJ

In 2007, an FBI agent impersonated an Associated Press journalist in order to deliver malware to a criminal suspect and find out his location. According to a newly published report from the Department of Justice, the operation was in line with the FBI's undercover policies at the time. Journalistic organisations had expressed concern that the tactic could undermine reporters’ and media institutions’ credibility. “We concluded that FBI policies in 2007 did not expressly address the tactic of agents impersonating journalists,” the report from the Office of the Inspector General reads.

French spy boss admits France cyberattacked Iran, Canada, Spain, Greece, Norway, Ivory Coast, Algeria, and others

Bernard Barbier presided over DGSE, France's answer to NSA, during the agency's period of fast growth, spending €500M and adding 800 new staffers; in a recent speech to a French engineering college, Barbier spilled a ton of secrets, apparently without authorisation. The first video upload of the talk was quickly yanked down, but new versions, with improved audio, are now online. The talk reveals that the NSA admitted to their French counterparts that US intelligence had hacked into France's seat of government, the Elysee; Barbier also took credit/blame for a string of cyber-offenses against France's allies, confirming for the first time that DGSE is not a "defensive" agency, but rather is involved in constant incursions against foreign powers.

Oliver Stone: DNC Leak an Inside Job

Well, I’m telling you I can’t go into all that information, but the point is haven’t we missed the content of what has been revealed?” said Stone. Buried beneath the propaganda offensive launched by Democrats and the establishment media blaming the Russians for the hack—an accusation now presented as fact minus substantial evidence—is the possibility the documents were exposed from within the DNC by a disgruntled staffer angry over the DNC's push for the nomination of Hillary Clinton and the underhanded subversion of the Bernie Sanders campaign. But there may have been a more nefarious objective behind the release of the documents.

The Mainstream Media Bet the Farm on Hillary–and Lost

The mainstream media bet the farm on Hillary Clinton, confident that their dismissal of every skeptical inquiry as a “conspiracy” would guarantee her victory. It now appears they have lost their bet. Let’s do something radical and be honest for a moment: the mainstream media has smoothed the path to Hillary’s coronation in countless often subtle ways. MSM “Opinion” hacks have unleashed unrelenting attacks on legitimate inquiries with accusations of “conspiracy” and obsequious kow-towing headlines such as “Can we please stop talking about Hillary’s health?”

Are the Russians Really Using Cyber Tricks to Undermine US Democracy?

On Sept. 5, The Washington Post published a front page story asserting that the Russian government is seeking to undermine American democracy at a crucial time, using unspecified “cybertools” to spread disinformation and chaos that could alter the outcome of the Nov. 8 presidential election. “US intelligence and law enforcement agencies are investigating what they see as a broad covert Russian operation in the United States to sow public distrust in the upcoming presidential election and in US political institutions,” the Postreported.

Self-Driving Vehicle Revolution to Wipe Out 4 Million Jobs

Tesla made headlines the other day with the first traffic fatality caused by its “Autopilot” system, which had failed to “see” a big tractor-trailer rig that had pulled right in front of the car. But humans fail to see things too, and gruesome accidents are happening with humans behind the wheel. Last year, 38,300 people were killed in traffic accidents in the US, up 8% from 2014, and 4.4 million were injured enough to require medical attention. Other manufacturers all have similar or better systems than Tesla’s beta version, but they’re more conservative in their hype and what they allow drivers to do.

Cops Test New Weed Breathalyzer On California Drivers

Your days tooling around town, hotboxing the car may be numbered. While driving impaired under the influence of marijuana has always been illegal, law enforcement and policy makers have had yet to arrive at a standard measurement to prove impairment. A new marijuana breathalyzer that immediately detects THC levels could bring them one step closer to regulating marijuana-related impairment on the roads.
