    Legal experts are going through the FBI’s redacted affidavit used to obtain the “search and seize” warrant to enter Mar-a-Lago three weeks ago and remove presidential records, including documents classified and the highest levels, believed to have been stored there by Donald Trump. It appears the general consensus from legal experts is this document is damning for the former president, both on the volume of documents he allegedly unlawfully held, and on the nature of the documents: not only classified but classified at some of the highest levels, and so dangerous if they were given to America’s adversaries that, as the affidavit states, “lives can be at risk.” Attorney David Laufman, a former Chief of the Counterintelligence and Export Control Section (CES) in the National Security Division at the Department of Justice (DOJ), called the volume of evidence the FBI and DOJ has “pulverizing” in an appearance Friday on MSNBC, and that Trump should expect to get a target letter.

    A federal judge has rejected the plea deals of a naval engineer and his wife because they weren't harsh enough - after they were found guilty of trying to sell information about nuclear-powered submarines to a foreign government.  Jonathan Toebbe, 43, and his schoolteacher wife Diana, 46, plead guilty to violating the Atomic Energy Act earlier this year in a deal asking for between 12.5 and 17.5 years in prison for Jonathan, and three for Diana. But the couple withdrew those pleas after US District Judge Gina M. Groh said the the terms were not proportionate to their crimes. 'I find the sentencing options available to me to be strikingly deficient,' Groh said during the sentencing in Martinsburg, West Virginia, after noting she normally honors the terms of a plea deals even if she doesn't not agree with, 'Make no mistake, these defendants have been charged with very serious crimes.' The prosecution and defense alike appeared taken aback by Groh's ruling, according to The Washington Post, but made no comment. The judge set a trial date for January, 2023, but the Toebbes will...
    Juul on Friday asked a federal court to block a government order to stop selling its electronic cigarettes. The e-cigarette maker asked the court to pause what it calls an “extraordinary and unlawful action” by the Food and Drug Administration. The company filed an emergency motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington as it prepares to appeal the FDA’s decision. The FDA said Thursday that Juul must stop selling its vaping device and its tobacco and menthol flavored cartridges. The action was part of a sweeping effort by the agency to bring scientific scrutiny to the multibillion-dollar vaping industry after years of regulatory delays. To stay on the market, companies must show that their e-cigarettes benefit public health. In practice, that means proving that adult smokers who use them are likely to quit or reduce their smoking, while teens are unlikely to get hooked on them. The FDA said Juul’s application left regulators with significant questions and didn’t include enough information to evaluate any potential risks. Juul said it submitted enough information and data to address all issues...
    Prince Andrew's formal legal response to allegations made by Virginia Roberts in her civil case against him has been described as 'defiant.' A more jaundiced assessment might characterise it as vague and sometimes baffling. In his answers and 'affirmative defences', there are 41 straight denials and a further 40 assertions that the prince 'lacks sufficient information' to admit or deny other claims she makes. Amid incredulity at some of the responses, legal experts questioned the wisdom of his insistence of a trial by jury which they suggested may be a bluff 'to buy time'. A court-set deadline required the prince to answer Roberts' original complaint by Wednesday. A more detailed response may presumably follow. But given the wealth of evidence already in the public domain concerning Andrew's relationship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, a number of his statements will still cause puzzlement. On two occasions the wording in his legal defence is ambiguous enough to suggest that he denies Maxwell was ever a 'close friend' or that she introduced him to Epstein.  Yet during his disastrous...
    The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), chief online regulatory agency for the Communist regime, on Tuesday imposed a half-million-dollar fine on Weibo, the Chinese microblogging site that stands in for Twitter. Weibo was vaguely accused of posting “information forbidden by law and regulations,” which means it did not censor its users aggressively enough to please the authoritarian government. The South China Morning Post (SCMP) speculated the “forbidden” information might have pertained to tennis star Peng Shuai, who was made to disappear after accusing a high-ranking Chinese Communist Party (CCP) official of sexually assaulting her a decade ago.  Peng leveled her accusation in an emotional Weibo post, which Communist Party censors erased within minutes of her posting it.  Many Weibo users acted quickly enough to screen-shot the post before it was obliterated, so the censors shifted into higher gear, blocking searches for information about her and deleting her name from Chinese websites. The Party even censored Western media broadcasts that mentioned her. The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) suspended all tournaments in China at the beginning of September due to the...
    President Biden and Anthony Fauci address the Omicron variant in late November Guardian: Omicron seems to carry higher Covid reinfection risk, says South Africa Scientists warn of higher rate of repeat infections but say vaccines appear to protect against serious illness As the EU’s public health agency warned that Omicron could cause more than half of all new Covid infections in Europe within the next few months, evidence was emerging, however, that vaccines still appear to offer protection against serious illness. According to new evidence collected in South Africa by its National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) the latest epidemiological evidence suggests that Omicron can evade immunity from infection with earlier variants and is causing reinfections at three times previous rates.

    The Carolina Panthers, who along with the Miami Dolphins have been the only teams closely linked to Deshaun Watson, will no longer pursue the Houston Texans embattled quarterback, according to NFL Network. NFL Network reported on Wednesday that Watson has only waived his no-trade clause for the Dolphins. A deal could be struck between the Dolphins and Texans before the NFL’s Nov. 2 trade deadline. It is unclear if other teams teams are still interested in trading for Watson, despite facing allegations of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior in 22 active lawsuits. The Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles have been mentioned as possible trade suitors despite Watson’s unsettled legal situation. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday at the owners meetings that the league still doesn’t have enough information about the lawsuits to make a decision on potential discipline. He also said there is not enough information to place the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback on the commissioner’s exempt list, and that the league is waiting to see all the information gathered in the suits. The Texans reportedly are seeking at least...

    (CBS DETROIT) – Another act of violence led to another innocent victim clinging to life. “Right down the street from me there’s a kid shot in the head,” said Kevin Winston, a resident on Stahelin Street on Detroit’s west side. READ MORE: Contract Talks To Resume At Kellogg's Amid Cereal Strike“Yeah, that’s heartbreaking. That’s very heartbreaking, you know, I have kids of my own.” According to Detroit Police, a sleepover ended violently when a suspect fired over a dozen shots outside this home on the 18600 block of Stahelin early Tuesday morning. Two of those bullets hit a 15-year-old. “This is a plea to the community for help,” said DPD Second Deputy Chief Rudy Harper. “We don’t have any leads at this time regarding this shooting and we’re asking anyone with information to come forward.” Detroit Police say the teen was shot in the head while sleeping at a friend’s house just after 1:30 a.m. “We see this too often on the news that our young people are being victims of gun violence and it has to stop, enough is...
    Megyn Kelly slammed President Joe Biden’s administration for looking “the other way” when it comes to the truth about the origin of COVID-19. “Forgive me but, these fuckers have lied to us for long enough and we need to know the truth,” Kelly told her guest Josh Rogin, a columnist for The Washington Post, during her Sirius XM radio show “The Megyn Kelly Show” on Wednesday. “We need to know.” (RELATED: Previously Redacted Email Between Peter Daszak, Anthony Fauci Suddenly Sees Light Of Day) “People died, millions of people are dead and Peter Daszak is allowed to get away with his lies,” she added, noting the EcoHealth Alliance President who collaborated closely with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) lab before the pandemic.

    With back-to-school in full swing, safety experts and law enforcement are urging parents to be mindful of what they share in regards to a popular social media photo trend with kids – as it could make them easy targets for predators. On Aug. 8, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office in Woodstock, Illinois, shared an image of Deputy Sherriff Tim Creighton exemplifying a common online theme in which parents post images of their children posing with a sign to celebrate the first day of a new school year. (McHenry County Sheriff's Office) The two-snapshot Facebook post shows Creighton holding a poster titled, "My first day of school" with the left side sharing mock information such as name, age, grade, teacher and name of school in attendance. The right image has those personal details blurred out, suggesting that it’s unsafe to include it in a picture.  The post was shared upwards of 69,000 times, with many commenters thanking the sheriff’s office for the crucial tip that parents should never share the following: School name Age Teacher's name and grade Identifying...
    Federal agencies responsible for safeguarding the security and personal data of millions of Americans have failed to implement basic defenses against cyberattacks, according to a report from Senate investigators released Tuesday. The agencies earned a C- report card for falling short of federally-mandated standards in the 47-page report by the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations of the Senate Homeland Security Committee. The report also concluded that Americans' personal information remains at risk in the wake of a slew of high-profile cyber attacks and evaluated two years of inspector general reports. The audit accuses eight critical agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the State Department and the Social Security Administration (SSA) of relying on outdated systems, ignoring mandatory security patches and failing to protect sensitive data such as names, date of birth, income, social security numbers and credit card numbers. In 2020, the White House reported 30,819 information security incidents across the federal government— an 8% increase from 2019 – according to the report, which also evaluated the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Department of Housing and Urban Development...
    Republican Sen. Tom Cotton and Rep. Dan Crenshaw are launching a new initiative to locate and eliminate “woke” training programs in the U.S. military. “Enough is enough,” Crenshaw, a retired lieutenant commander with the United States Navy and a Navy SEAL, said in a tweet. “We won’t let our military fall to woke ideology.” The duo added a feature to their own congressional websites that allows military service members to anonymously report instances or pieces of training that are perceived as “woke.” “We have just launched a whistleblower webpage where you can submit your story. Your complaint will be legally protected, and go to my office and @SenTomCotton,” the Texas Republican tweeted. Enough is enough. We won’t let our military fall to woke ideology.

    The New York Times' executive editor Dean Baquet admitted in a Monday interview that the liberal "newspaper of record" failed to accurately verify data provided by anonymous sources concerning an alleged briefing given to Rudy Giuliani by the FBI. Baquet told The Washington Post, "We weren't rigorous enough," when describing why corrections had to be made to false reporting that Giuliani received an FBI briefing warning him that he was the target of a Russian disinformation campaign.  The report, which was originally published Thursday, was retracted by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and NBC News on Saturday.  MSNBC'S NICOLLE WALLACE SLAMMED FOR PERPETUATING 'LIE' ABOUT RUDY GIULIANI FBI BRIEFING "I think we all tend to drop our guard when we get beat and are trying to catch up," Baquet said while blaming the egregious error on reporters scrambling to match The Washington Post's reporting, who were the first to break the inaccurate story.  "We need to grill sources more to make sure we understand exactly what they’re confirming.

    Just three songs from a playlist can be used to identify its curator from a lineup, a new study claims. Researchers in Israel conducted experiments to see if song choices could be linked to their curator, even without knowing their music tastes. They found undergraduate students were able to identify others from three pieces of music – but the experts did not deduce how they did it.   The findings are of concern because streaming giants could potentially identify anonymised users by listening habits, which 'constitutes a significant threat to privacy disclosure', they say.   According to the researchers, three songs from a playlist are enough to identify the person who chose the songs. Hence, companies like YouTube and Spotify (pictured) can accumulate a great deal of information about their users based only on their music choices SPOTIFY USERS FURIOUS AFTER UK PRICE HIKESpotify will increase the prices of its premium subscriptions in the UK from April 30.

    Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday that big tech is “aiding and abetting” China’s mission for “global dominance.” “China and big tech, they have a cozy relationship,” Blackburn said. “And they have been allowing the Chinese Communist Party to spew all of their information. I can’t find anywhere they’ve been censored or blocked or banned.” “Big tech is aiding and abetting the Chinese Communist Party in their push for global dominance, and we are going to have to stand against it,” she added. Blackburn said that by enacting the “virtual you” agenda, Americans could fight back against big tech’s dominance and censorship practices. “This is what we will tell big tech: ‘you cannot track, follow, listen, data mine, or share your information, your information with a third party without getting your explicit consent,'” she said. “It is your privacy.” Blackburn remarked that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg once admitted Facebook acts more “like a government than a company.” The Tennessee Republican said she would work to remove big tech’s Section 230 legal immunity...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his health department's top official defiantly defended the administration's nursing home policy on Friday, as the Democratic governor said he should have provided more public information "sooner" but he also "should have been more aggressive" in fighting "lies" by his "crazy" Republican opponents.  Cuomo made the comments during a press conference, saying he was "complacent" in not addressing the "falsities" and "attacks" against himself. This, after the Democratic governor remained silent about a watchdog report that said Cuomo's nursing home directive was likely responsible for more than 1,000 additional resident deaths during the coronavirus pandemic, despite numerous denials by the administration that their order was heavily to blame.  A top Cuomo aide admitted recently that the administration purposefully withheld accurate COVID-19 death information from the Justice Department who was probing nursing home cases in four states including New York.  Cuomo insisted on Friday that the information his administration provided was accurate at the time but admitted that he "did not produce public information fast enough."  "This creates a void," he said. "And conspiracy theories and politics and rumors fill that void and you can't allow...
    GIBSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in North Carolina are asking the public for help in an investigation that involves homemade explosive devices in Gibsonville. The FBI said in a press release on Tuesday that at least five homemade explosive devices have been found along Wood Street in the town outside of Burlington. The agency said that residents have also reported hearing explosions for the last several months. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who are responsible. “The FBI is extremely concerned someone is reckless enough to build these devices and careless enough to leave them lying around a neighborhood for anyone to find," said Robert R. Wells, special agent in charge of FBI Charlotte. "We are grateful no one has been hurt and committed to finding out who is responsible. We hope the community will help us resolve this dangerous situation." Anyone who encounters a suspicious item or device should not touch it and contact 911 immediately.

Former presidents are allowed to receive classified intelligence briefings, mainly as a courtesy and to allow them to chime in with advice if it’s needed. While all of the living former presidents receive at least some briefings, Trump now will not. Biden told CBS News that he didn’t see the value in letting Trump continue to receive classified information. “What impact does he have at all, other than the fact he might slip and say something?” Biden said. While in office, Trump was known to dislike receiving the typical lengthy intelligence briefings that most presidents receive, forcing intelligence aides to find ways...

    (CNN)About 6 in 10 Americans don't know when or where to get a coronavirus vaccine, according a survey released Friday from the Kaiser Family Foundation. This comes after reports that President Joe Biden's administration must start from scratch with federal plans for distribution, having been left little to no framework from former President Donald Trump and his team."The Biden administration has been left with a huge challenge on vaccine administration. Most Americans don't know when or where they can get a vaccine, including older Americans who are already eligible to get a vaccine in a growing number of states," KFF President and CEO Drew Altman said.

    The following article is an opinion piece and reflects the views of only the author and not those of AllOnGeorgia.com. This week has echoed why I prefer covering local (and, in small increments, state) politics. I can’t stand the national scene, the rhetoric, the hysteria and as odd as it sounds, public corruption is peaceful because stories are free of partisanship. The headlines are atrocious enough to get people’s attention without the prerequisite “Where is my team on this one?” When I’m asked to visit a new town or begin a new investigative story, I ask myself 2 things: Why am I doing this? Is the desired outcome an improvement from the current situation? This standard came into play when I was investigating the City of Oak Park a few years ago. One of my sources, after sharing a boatload of information, said “Now what?” When I said that it was my belief that everything should be published for public consumption, he said, “I’m afraid that after you torch the...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — In some good news for restaurants just trying to hold on during the pandemic, $10,000 grants have been announced for local businesses trying to survive a Chicago winter. AS CBS 2’s Tara Molina reported, indoor drinking and dining are not allowed in the city right now as the pandemic rages. The owner of Mom’s Place, at 650 N. Dearborn St. in River North, said the $10,000 won’t be enough to get them through the winter under such conditions. But he said it sure will help. Mom’s Place is a classic bar and restaurant in a part of the city where they’re few and far between these days. Owner Ron Prokaski calls Mom’s a gathering place. “It’s a real Chicago thing, which is unique for down here,” Prokaski said. But what does a gathering place do in the age of COVID-19? Outdoor tables, chairs, and umbrellas worked all summer – and over an atypical beautiful weather weekend in November, But as temperatures dip? “There’s a lot more places that are going to close – a lot more...
    The focus of Governor Jared Polis's October 16 press conference was a plan for distributing a future COVID-19 vaccine that will be submitted to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention later today. But this information was accompanied by revelations regarding data about the novel coronavirus's current spread through the state, including a new record for daily cases and hospitalizations that continue to soar, with no end in sight. In revealing these figures, Polis encouraged people to cut back on gatherings. "If you have social plans this weekend with some friend to get together at their house or whatever it is, I suggest you avoid them for a few weeks," he said. The key Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment stats cited by Polis: 1,312 new positives today, as well as 352 hospitalizations. Those hospitalizations, he noted, are "the most since late May, and I am very concerned about this trend. We had three days over 1,000 cases, and our positivity rate continues to be just over 5 percent, which is the threshold from the World Health Organization about whether there...
    Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron responded to critics who have attacked him personally for his decision not to prosecute the officers directly involved in the death of Breonna Taylor during a Thursday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” appearance. Cameron was widely criticized after a grand jury decided to bring charges against only one officer, former Louisville Metro Police Department officer Brett Hankison, for three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree for rounds that hit a neighboring apartment. Tucker Carlson played several clips of people criticizing Cameron personally on air, attacks the Fox News host called “so cruel and so vicious so unfair” that he “hesitated to air them again” before bringing the Kentucky attorney general on to respond. WATCH: “It is so unfortunate that because I have a different political philosophy and because in my role as the attorney general and as the special prosecutor in the Breonna Taylor investigation, because I led with the facts and the truth and had that lead to the conclusion, somehow I betrayed my race,” Cameron responded. “It is repugnant. It is...
    Donald Trump Does the new report on Donald Trump‘s tax returns describe potential criminality? A former federal prosecutor says there’s enough to justify an investigation. And not just any ol’ probe: It would involve another special counsel. This article contains what federal agents and prosecutors call “predication,” which is the bare amount you need to open a criminal investigation. But who would investigate? The President himself oversees @IRS_CI and @FBI and @TheJusticeDept. /2 — Daniel R.

Alonso, a former federal prosecutor who worked in the Eastern District of New York. “Now, we’ve been down this path before, and it didn’t turn out well for the Attorney General who recused, and the Acting AG got a world of hell rained down on him for appointing a Special Counsel.” That’s a reference to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused from the FBI’s investigation into the...
    The editor-in-chief of the Atlantic explained why he used anonymous sources in a new report that said President Trump made disparaging comments about fallen and wounded soldiers during a trip overseas in 2018. During a Friday morning interview on CNN, Jeffrey Goldberg, who wrote the story published on Thursday that has been denied by several current and former members of the administration who were on the trip where the president allegedly called dead soldiers "losers" and dead Marines "suckers," defended the use of four anonymous sources whom he said have "firsthand knowledge" of the discussion. "They don’t want to be inundated with angry tweets and all the rest. And we push hard and that’s why you have to sort of do this reporting with even more belt and suspenders approach. You know, dotted I's and crossed T's and find multiple sources for it," he explained on New Day. "Each time this is a judgment call, right? Does the public’s interest in needing this information outweigh the ambiguities or the difficulties of anonymous sourcing and in this case," Goldberg added. "I...
    This Chalkbeat story was produced in partnership with Block Club Chicago, a nonprofit news site covering city neighborhoods. CHICAGO — George Washington High School on Chicago’s Southeast Side has held four different meetings in the last month to discuss whether to keep its police officers on campus. During each meeting, student Trinity Colon has been inundated with questions. Friends, acquaintances, and community members have reached out to Colon, the student representative on the local school council, on Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter to find out when the meetings will take place, how to find the link to access the livestream, and what’s on each agenda. “Students are not getting the information as well as they can be — it’s not transparent,” said Colon, a first-year student rep. Her school will vote whether to keep or remove school resource officers on Aug. 12. After a Chalkbeat Chicago and Block Club investigation found that multiple councils did not follow transparency rules around their police votes, including failing to post an agenda or meeting information so that the public could log in, Chicago Public...

    In Louisiana, Draya McCarty and Shakie Peters, both Black trans women, were found dead within the past week. The death of McCarty, who was found dead in Baton Rouge, has not so far been ruled a homicide, but advocates are watching for additional information. Peters, whose first name is spelled "Shaki" in some reports, was found dead on July 1 near Amite City and was initially misidentified as a man by the local sheriff's office. Police are investigating her death as a homicide. Louisiana Trans Advocates, an advocacy and social support organization, has called for law enforcement agencies investigating these women's deaths to release more information to the public and to their families. They are also calling for the police and members of the press to correct the name and gender they use for Peters. "Were it not for the advocacy of the family members of both Shakie and Draya, Louisiana Trans Advocates would not have learned of these two murders at all," the group said in a press release on July 4. A Black trans woman, Bree Black, who...
