Image inside Nov 16 - Men with facial hair are more attractive to women than men without it

2 people viewing this

| By Mr Scaramucci - 2 hours ago



A study suggests most women who date men really like a guy with facial hair, but not too much.

The paper published in the Journal of Evolutionary Biology surveyed about 8,500 women between the ages of 18 and 100.

They were asked to choose between photos of men with different levels of facial hair.

Here are the results:

1. Heavy stubble, about 10 daysÂ’ worth

2. Full beard

3. Light stubble


4. Clean shaven

The results are similar earlier studies about men and facial hair.

“The results indicated that the women found men with light stubble most attractive; these men were preferred as both short- and long-term partners,” said Jeremy Nicholson in Psychology Today.

“However, the women perceived male faces with full beards as the most masculine, aggressive, and socially mature; the women also thought these men looked older. Men's faces with light beards were considered the most dominant.”

Video inside Nov 16 - Troop Border Deployments & Trump's Dump: VICE News Tonight Full Episode (HBO)

Quote:

Published on Nov 16, 2018

This is the November 7, 2018 FULL EPISODE of VICE News Tonight on HBO.

1:58 What Democrats are going to say yes to, is investigating the Trump administration in every way possible. What that adds up to is a lot of hearings, a lot of grandstanding, and a lot of potential for overstepping.

7:46 Many of the gains that Democrats made in the House over midterms don't follow a usual trend.

9:11 The troop deployment is barely visible on the ground and people who live here say it's nothing more than a political stunt. But as a political maneuver, it seems to be working: Cruz won, and even in the place where you might least expect it, the GOP has completely fallen in line with Trump.

12:22 More than 4,500 migrants have arrived in Mexico City since Sunday. City officials are bracing to attend as many as 5,500 people

14:49 A nastier proxy war is playing out on the banks of the Chicago River. VICE News dives in-- literally with a remote submarine-- to get to the real story behind the Illinois AG's Clean Water Act lawsuit against the Trump Organization in sweet home Chicago.

Image inside Nov 16 - "Florida Man" walked into police station, asked to go to jail for child porn

2 people viewing this

| By Sin - 5 hours ago



A 24-year-old Pensacola man was arrested after he went to the Pensacola Police Department and told officers he needed to go to jail because he downloaded child porn on his cellphone.

On Nov. 9, Cory Hinsch walked into the police station at 711 N. Hayne St., approached an officer at the front desk and said he had child porn on his cellphone and needed to go to jail, according to a Pensacola Police Department arrest report.

He then put his cellphone up against the glass and showed the officer a picture of a young girl engaged in sexual acts.

Hinsch was taken upstairs, read his Miranda Rights and said he wanted to give a statement without the presence of an attorney. He told investigators he downloaded child porn from the "dark web" and agreed to let officers download and view his cellphone.

The detectives found two photos depicting child pornography on the cellphone.

Hinsch was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of child pornography. He was released Nov. 13 on $10,000 bond.

Trump supports old/new bill for prison reform--do Kim and Kanye deserve some credit?

2 people viewing this

Cliffnotes for those with short attention span:

Quote:

The President also spoke about Alice Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender whose sentence he commuted over the summer after the case was brought to his attention by reality television star Kim Kardashian.
"I'll never forget the scene of her coming out of prison after 21 years and greeting her family and everybody was crying. Her sons, her grandsons, everybody was crying and hugging and holding each other. It was a beautiful thing to see, it was a very tough situation," he said.
.
.
.
The new legislation would eliminate "stacking" provisions that result in offenders serving consecutive sentences for crimes committed using firearms; shorten mandatory minimum sentences, including reverting life imprisonment to a 25-year minimum for those convicted under the "three strikes" provision; and expand the "drug safety valve" to reduce the number of nonviolent drug offenders receiving mandatory minimum sentences.
Proponents of the bill made several changes to it to win backing from law enforcement groups, including excluding individuals convicted of some fentanyl-related offenses from accessing good time prison credits and a compromise provision to modestly expand the definition of a serious violent crime.
Now, I've bashed Kanye's whitehouse debacle on this forum before, but always maintained that if it helps even 1 person (like Kim with Alice Johnson), that I would applaud it, no matter how silly he made himself look. I'm truly bipartisan and while I'm liberal, I don't just vote democrat down the line. I'm prefacing because I know this will quickly divulge in a us VS them type of thread and it's important to note that this bill is a bipartisan effort. Also important to note that Bill Clinton was the one who passed the existing sh*tty policies in 1994 (to the democrats who automatically give their votes away).

And really there's no way to tell what impact Ye may have had, if any (which is why I'm asking your opinions). We can't "prove" anything, but it can be debated.

On one hand, this bill has been worked on since the Obama administration by a lot of the same folks pushing it today, so calling it a Trump victory would be wrong. Obama admin ,because they lost big in the primaries, got obstructed by the Mitch Mcconnells of the game on this sh*t and it didn't go anywhere. Fast forward and the dynamics of congress has shifted to democrats at least controlling the house now and things like this will be easier to pass. For those who say this is not enough, you're absolutely right. This ain't actually "prison reform"...it's a "sentencing reform." The move to make "prisons" into actual 'rehabilitation centers' is what we need...treatment, not cages that reinforce the behaviors that got them there. BUT it's appropriately called the FIRST STEP act because everything begins somewhere and any little bit helps some people out there.

Tbh, I really don't care about the Kanye aspect and just wanted to bring this to your attentions, but know that's probably what this will turn into and it's tangentially hip hop-related, so have at it...thoughts?

Nov 16 - JUST IN: Judge Rules in Jim Acosta vs TRUMP - ACOSTA & CNN for the WIN!!!!

2 people viewing this

| By Juliette DaBlok - 7 hours ago

Updated 10 mins ago
WASHINGTON -- A federal judge in Washington is ordering the Trump administration to immediately return the White House press credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta.

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly announced his decision Friday morning.

CNN had asked that Acosta's credentials be returned while a lawsuit over their revocation goes forward.

The network's chief White House correspondent has clashed repeatedly with Trump and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in briefings over the last two years. But the White House pulled his credentials last week following a combative press conference in which he clashed with Trump.

President Trump sparred with CNN's Jim Acosta at a news conference Wednesday. A White House staffer took his microphone before Trump called him a "rude, terrible person."


The judge is a Trump appointee.






Trump is going to be pissed lol.

Nov 16 - the toupees ‘very major’ new tax cut dies a quiet death

2 people viewing this

| By messy marv stan - 7 hours ago




visit this link http://www.msnbc.com/rach .. es-quiet-death


About a month ago, Donald Trump first declared publicly that he and congressional Republicans were working “around the clock” on a “very major” new tax cut, which would be ready no later than Nov. 1, despite the fact that Congress was effectively out of session until after the elections. No one in Congress had any idea what the president was talking about, and even White House officials quietly conceded they were “mystified.”

Quote:

Trump didn’t care. The plan, which appeared to exist only in his imagination, quickly became a major applause line at the president’s campaign rallies. Pressed by reporters for details, Trump boasted that he and his team had came up with a way to make his new tax plan “revenue neutral based on certain things.”
The Nov. 1 deadline came and went, and the plan the president promised to present never materialized. Yesterday, Politico published a report suggesting the policy, which never really existed in any meaningful way, is dead.


Quote:

White House officials are not counting on a big infrastructure package or a deal on the kind of middle-class tax cut Trump promised at the end of the campaign.

“We’ve been noodling more on this middle-class tax cut, how to structure it, and even pay for it,” National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said in a recent interview in his West Wing office. “I don’t think the chances of that are very high, because the Democrats are going to go after the corporate tax and all that stuff.

For those whoÂ’ve watched Trump and his operation closely in recent years, the fact that Trump made up a fictional policy, and peddled it as if it were real, is hardly shocking. Indeed, itÂ’s one of the key takeaways from his farcical little story: the president simply says stuff, without any meaningful concerns about whether his stuff reflects reality in any way.

But that’s not the only lesson. The fact that Trump made up a tax policy just weeks ahead of Election Day – it was exclusively for the “middle class,” he said – was also emblematic of the fact that even the president realized that the actual Republican tax package was a political failure.

Quote:

Indeed, the rest of the GOP’s pitch wasn’t much better. With time running out before the midterms, after nearly two years of attempts at governing, Trump came up with an entirely new vision, consisting of a made-up tax plan, fears of an imaginary “invasion,” a health care “plan” that didn’t exist, and chatter of an executive order the president hoped to issue – but could not legally expect to implement – that would’ve negated part of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.
Now that the elections are nearly over, that agenda has suddenly disappeared. The cynicism behind TrumpÂ’s gambit is breathtaking

Image inside Nov 15 - Gofundme scam: story that raised $400,000 for ‘homeless vet’ allegedly made up

2 people viewing this

| By Sin - 1 day ago


he viral story of a New Jersey couple that crowdfunded $400,000 for a homeless veteran took a shocking turn after prosecutors alleged it was all a scam.

The couple—Mark D'Amico and Kate McClure—launched the GoFundMe campaign in November last year, claiming it was for a man called Johnny Bobbitt Jr. who, they said, gave McClure his last $20 to get home safe after her car ran out of gas while she was driving into Philadelphia.

The story spread like wildfire online, and resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations being sent from people who wanted to also help Bobbitt Jr. But officials said today the trio concocted the tale and will face charges including conspiracy and theft by deception.

D’Amico, 35, and McClure, 28, turned themselves in to Burlington County prosecutors this week. Bobbitt Jr., 35, was arrested in Philadelphia yesterday and will be sent to New Jersey. NBC10 Philadelphia first reported the couple and Bobbitt Jr. prevented donors from getting information “that would affect their judgment about solicited contribution to that fundraising effort.”

Philadelphia law enforcement officials also told NBC10 Thursday that Bobbitt Jr. had been “considered a fugitive of justice from Burlington County in relation to the GoFundMe incident.” Burlington County prosecutors announced their findings in a Thursday press conference.

"The entire campaign was predicated on a lie," said prosecutor Scott Coffina.

GoFundMe told the prosecutors that it will work to refund money to anyone who donated. Officials said today that Bobbitt Jr. had been "fully complicit" in the scheme. D’Amico and McClure have since been released, while Bobbitt Jr. remained in custody facing extradition.

Prosecutors said the couple had known each other for about a month before the fake story was first posted online. It remained unclear who had the original idea for the scam, officials noted. For the second free charges the trio faces, the sentences could be between 5 to 10 years.


It became clear in recent months that the relationship between the three had been deteriorating. In August, Bobbitt claimed he could not access any of the money donated to him via GoFundMe. As the situation escalated, and lawyers became involved, D’Amico said that he would only hand over the remaining cash once Bobbitt Jr. stopped using drugs and got a job.

The couple’s attorney, Ernest Badway, claimed Bobbitt Jr. had stolen items from the couple, while Bobbitt Jr. countered by saying he had only received around $75,000 of the cash and that the couple had been lavishly spending the rest. GoFundMe said it was “looking into the claims of misuse” regarding the campaign. The couple were ordered by judge to hand over the cash.

According to the New York Post, Badway said in September this year that D’Amico and McClure would “likely be indicted” because of the alleged misuse of funds. “I will no longer be able to continue our representation of them in this matter,” he said at the time, reported the New York Post. It remained unclear just how much money was spent—but the pair denied wrongdoing.

Nov 15 - Navy SEALs and Marines charged with murder in horrific hazing incident

2 people viewing this

Navy SEALs and Marines charged with murdering Green Beret in horrific hazing incident



Two SEALs from the Navy's elite Seal Team Six and two Marines have been charged with murder and involuntary manslaughter in the death of Army Green Beret Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar in Mali in June 2017. If the case moves to a court-martial, the four members of some of the U.S. military's most elite units face the possibility of life in prison without parole.

"Charges were preferred yesterday against two Sailors and two Marines in the death of Army Staff Sergeant Logan Melgar, who died June 4, 2017, while serving in Bamako, Mali," said a Navy statement.

"The four personnel face charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice including Felony Murder, Involuntary Manslaughter, Conspiracy, Obstruction of Justice, Hazing and Burglary," the statement said.

Charge sheets identify the two SEALs as serving with Naval Special Warfare Development Group, the official name for SEAL Team Six, the elite unit most famous for carrying out the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. The two Marines belong to the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command.

The charge sheets allege that on the night of June 10, 2018, the four special operations service members obtained duct tape, broke down the door into Melgar’s sleeping quarters, bound him up with duct tape and then strangled him to death while in a chokehold. The charge sheets do not provide a motive for Melgar's death but under the burglary charge alleges that the four broke into Melgar's bedroom "with the intent to assault."

Another charge of hazing alleges that they had allegedly committed "hazing" by breaking into his bedroom "while he was sleeping and participating in an assault."

The four service members also face charges of obstruction of justice for denying their use of duct tape, lying that they had drunk alcohol and providing false timelines about what happened that night.

One of the SEALS is alleged to have gruesomely tried to cover up the damage to Melgar's trachea by carrying out a cricothyrotomy, normally a life-saving procedure where an incision is made in the trachea to help with breathing.

The circumstances of Melgar's death had initially triggered an Army investigation that was referred to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) last September. Last week, NCIS referred its completed investigation to Admiral Charles Rock the Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, to decide how the case should proceed.

Melgar was part of a small group of U.S. military personnel working in Bamako, Mali in support of the U.S. Embassy. The Lubbock, Texas, native enlisted in the Army in January 2012 as an 18X. In 2013, he started his Special Forces training and was assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) in 2016, after he'd completed the Special Forces Qualification and Special Forces Engineer courses.

Melgar conducted two deployments to Afghanistan as an engineer sergeant.

"We honor the memory of Staff Sgt. Melgar, our thoughts remain with his family and teammates," said Captain Jason Salata, a spokesman for U.S. Special Operations Command.

"If these allegations of misconduct are substantiated, they represent a violation of the trust and standards required of all service members. We trust our service members to safeguard our nation's most sensitive interests and to do so with honor."

"We will not allow allegations or substantiated incidents of misconduct erode decades of honorable accomplishments by the members of US Special Operations Command," he added. "Ours is a culture of professionalism and accountability, which prides itself in being a learning organization that uses critical self-examination in a relentless dedication to improvement."

The four will face a preliminary Article 32 court hearing on Dec. 10 that will determine if they will face a general court-martial. A Navy spokesperson says the maximum penalty they currently face is life without parole, but that could change if the Article 32 hearing determines the case merits a capital court-martial which carries the death penalty.

The four service members are currently not being held in pre-trial confinement.

Nov 15 - 5 of Khashoggis killers will get their heads chopped off

Quote:

Saudi Arabia has charged 11 men with murdering journalist Jamal Khashoggi

Kingdom will seek death penalty against five of those directly involved in killing

But prosecutor said Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not involved

Saudi believes Khashoggi was killed with lethal injection, then dismembered

Foreign minister said 'mistakes happen' but killers will now be brought to justice

Five Saudi officials are facing the death penalty after being accused of murdering journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Shalaan al-Shalaan, the kingdom's deputy public prosecutor, revealed on Thursday that 21 people are in custody over the killing and charges have been brought against 11 of them.

Al-Shalaan requested the death penalty for five who 'are charged with ordering and committing the crime and for the appropriate sentences for the other indicted individuals'.

But he exonerated Saudi's de-facto ruler Mohammed bin Salman by laying ultimate blame for Khashoggi's killing at the feet of two lesser officials.

Executions in Saudi Arabia are usually carried out publicly by beheading with a sword






Shalaan said the highest-level official implicated in Khashoggi's killing is former deputy intelligence chief Ahmed al-Assiri, who gave the order for him to be repatriated to Saudi Arabia from Turkey, where he was living in exile.

He added that it was 'the head of the negotiating team' dispatched to seize Khashoggi who then gave the order to kill him, without naming the man

Shalaan denied that Salman had any knowledge of the killing. The Crown Prince has blamed it on 'rogue elements' of the Saudi state.

That was a claim backed by foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir who said bin Salman has 'absolutely nothing to do' with the death.

'Sometimes mistakes happen... sometimes people exceed their authority,' he said before adding Saudi was taking steps 'to make sure this doesn't happen again.'


Meanwhile Turkey's public prosecutor said news of the charges was 'positive but insufficient'.

Turkey has previously said it believes officials at the very top level of Saudi's ruling family are to blame for the murder, but stopped short of accusing bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia added that it believes Khashoggi was given a lethal injection inside the country's consulate in Istanbul on October 2





Top intelligence officer General Ahmed al-Assiri was fired in connection with the death, and is now facing charges


His body was then dismembered and taken out of the building, Shalaan said, though admitted the kingdom does not not know where the remains are now.

Investigations are ongoing to find the remains, the prosecutor insisted.

Hatice Cengiz, Khashoggi's fiancee who was with him at the consulate the day he died to retrieve documents allowing them to marry, has demanded the kingdom hand back his remains for a proper burial.

After repeated denials, Saudi Arabia finally admitted in mid-October that Khashoggi had been murdered at the compound, but blamed it on a 'rogue' operation.

The prosecutor has requested the death penalty for the five who 'are charged with ordering and committing the crime and for the appropriate sentences for the other indicted individuals,' an official statement published by state news agency SPA said.

It said a total of 21 individuals were in custody in connection with the killing, 11 of whom have been indicted with investigations to continue into the others.

Turkey on Wednesday called for an international investigation into the murder.

Ankara has already shared voice recordings linked to the murder with a number of countries including Saudi Arabia, the United States and its Western allies





X-ray images taken in Istanbul's Ataturk airport of the hit squad's luggage showed syringes and radios. Jamal Khashoggi was killed on October 2 inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on the same day the 15-man squad flew in






Khashoggi's killing has plunged the world's top oil exporter into its worst diplomatic crisis since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, in which most of the hijackers were identified as Saudi nationals.

After first insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, Saudi authorities said he was killed in an argument that degenerated into a brawl before finally accepting what Turkey had said virtually from the start - that he was killed in a premeditated hit

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said the order to murder Khashoggi came from 'the highest levels' of the Saudi government.

The global fallout over the murder has tainted the image of 33-year-old Prince Mohammed - the de facto ruler and heir apparent - despite persistent Saudi denials that he was involved.

Khashoggi's murder has also led to increased scrutiny of Saudi Arabia's role in the Yemen war, which has pushed the impoverished country to the brink of famine.

The journalist went into self-imposed exile in the United States in 2017 after falling out with Prince Mohammed

Video inside Nov 15 - Man in charge of cybersecurity for 2020 Olympics has never Used a Computer

2 people viewing this

| By mr_underground - 1 day ago



In other words, nowÂ’s probably a good time to get all that valuable data onto removable physical media.

On 14 October, the Minister in charge of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, Yosh*taka Sakurada was questioned by opposition party members in the Japanese Diet. In one particular exchange with Constitutional Democratic Party member Masato Imai he made a surprising revelation.

Masato: “Have you ever used a personal computer yourself?”

Sakurada: “From the time I was 25 I ran my own businesses, so I always had secretaries and employees, and so I never touched a computer personally.”

Masato: “I can’t believe that someone who has never laid a finger on a computer is in charge of cyberspace security measures.”

Sakurada: “That is being handled comprehensively using the full resources of my office and the national government. I have confidence that there are no flaws.”

This is great news for me, because now I am clearly qualified to manage an F1 team despite never having seen a full race, and not really understanding how it works. All those driver guys and wrench-holding dudes are pros though and know what theyÂ’re doing anyway.

In Sakurada’s defense, however, his role is more of a delegator, overseeing a wide range of responsibilities – cybersecurity only being one fraction. No one can be expected to be an expert in all facets of the Games. But even considering that, I’d still feel iffy about putting a guy who has never touched a computer in charge of the register at Wendy’s, let alone a massive global event.

Despite the disconcerting news, comments online were more in awe that such a person could function without ever booting up a computer.

“Doesn’t he know you can get porn on there?”
“Forget cybersecurity, how does he get any work done nowadays?”
“Maybe he’s like the younger generation and only knows smartphones and tablets.”
“He’s a master of cybersecurity. The only foolproof way to prevent security breaches is to not have a computer at all. Genius!”
“Big deal. It’s not like the president of a steel company knows how to work in the factory.”

The 68-year-old ministerÂ’s remarks came at about the same time that Microsoft Japan warned of a heightened risk of cyberattacks to Olympic host countries. In the same year as the Games, Microsoft will be ending its support of Windows 7, creating a sort of perfect storm and potentially leaving many organizations with vulnerable systems during an exceptionally dangerous time.

| By phantomnation - 1 day ago



In a strange and gruesome incident, Greg Griggers, the district attorney for Alabama’s 17th Judicial Circuit, was shot in the face by a state trooper early Thursday afternoon, reports AL.com.

The former cop was shot to death by law enforcement at the scene.

“Griggers got shot in the face and they killed the ex-state trooper who shot him,” Michael Jackson, another DA, told AL.com Thursday afternoon.

“They say he’s going to recover,” Jackson said. “I got an investigator going down there [to Demopolis] right now, and they’re going to give me updates.”

WVUA 23 in Tuscaloosa reported that Griggers had been ambushed waiting in his car.

The motive for the shooting is unclear. Griggers, a Democrat, has served as district attorney since January 2003.

Quote:

Ukraine offers the worldÂ’s cheapest broadband internet, according to new research from Cable.co.uk, with a broadband internet package coming at an average monthly cost of exactly five US dollars per month
What’s more, broadband in Ukraine is not only cheap, but also fast – its cheapest package offers a very serviceable 20Mbps. Take-up however is still relatively low – only around half the population has internet access.
Quote:

Mauritania in North Africa is the worldÂ’s most expensive country to get a broadband deal, with an average package price of 768.16 US dollars per month
Cable.co.uk gathered broadband price data from 3,303 fixed-line broadband deals in 195 countries with the assistance of international consumer insight consultancy BVA BDRC between August 15 and September 20, 2018. Nine of emerging Europe’s countries make the global top 20, and only two – Azerbaijan (54th) and Armenia (74th) – fall outside the global top 50.

“Despite many countries providing faster access year-on-year, and the price of broadband fluctuating – sometimes wildly – from country to country, on average the price of broadband worldwide remains largely unchanged, falling just 1.64 per cent since the fourth quarter of 2017,” said Dan Howdle, consumer telecoms analyst at Cable.co.uk.

“In our worldwide broadband speed comparison, released earlier this year, similar disparities were apparent to those seen here. The countries with slow, patchy broadband infrastructure that supplies only a fraction of the population tend to be the most expensive. Likewise, those with exceptional, often full-fibre (FTTH) infrastructure supplying the majority of the population tend to be the cheapest, if not in absolute terms, certainly on a cost-per-megabit basis,” added Mr Howdle.

Emerging Europe has long been known for the speed of its internet, which has become a key factor in the regionÂ’s growth as a tech hub.

Trump claims people illegally vote multiple times by changing their clothes

President Trump on Wednesday claimed that Republican candidates lost key races in last week's midterm elections due to voters casting multiple illegal ballots while wearing disguises.

In an interview with conservative outlet The Daily Caller, the president claimed that "potentially illegal votes" were responsible for Republicans candidates' losses, which he claimed resulted from voters returning to their homes or vehicles, exchanging clothes and returning to voting places.


“The Republicans don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes,” Trump told the Caller.

“When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on," he added.



The president also renewed his support for GOP-led voter ID efforts, while claiming again that Americans require IDs to purchase groceries.

“If you buy a box of cereal — you have a voter ID,” Trump said. “They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.”




The president, in recent days, has slammed Florida elections officials over the vote recount efforts in the state's elections for governor and U.S. Senate, which remain undecided as officials in two counties work to recount votes by hand.

Trump and Florida Republicans including Senate nominee Gov. Rick Scott have claimed that fraud is being committed by election officials in the state, arguing that the races should be called for Republicans.

Image inside Nov 15 - Infowars Infected With Credit Card-Stealing Malware

2 people viewing this

| By RAZAH CUTS - 1 day ago



Customers of the Infowars store are getting scammed every day but this time itÂ’s different. A security researcher discovered a form of malware embedded in the conspiracy siteÂ’s checkout process that records credit card details and transmits them to a remote server.

ZDNet interviewed Dutch security researcher Willem de Groot about his discovery of a strain of malware known as Magecart on the Infowars store. De Groot uses a custom-built malware scanner to monitor various websites for infections and he told ZDNet that heÂ’s kept tabs on Infowars for three and a half years with no signs of foul play.

But on Monday, he noticed some malicious code had been added to a block of JavaScript connected to Google Analytics. He said it appeared within 24 hours prior to its discovery. In a statement sent to ZDNet, Infowars founder Alex Jones said that “only 1,600 customers may have been affected,” and the company’s customer support team “is being contacted so they can watch for any unusual charges to their account and rectify them.”

Magecart has been used in various forms to gobble up credit card information across the e-commerce industry, with high-profile hacks hitting hundreds of thousands of victims at companies like NewEgg and British Airways.

Yesterday, RisqIQ and Flashpoint released an in-depth report linking the malware to at least seven different cyber-criminal operations. De Groot told ZDNet that the Infowars code was different than what was covered in the Flashpoint report. “While the shoddy implementation suggests an amateurish actor, the profile of its targets are above average,” he said. “Several of its victims are running Magento Enterprise, which is usually very well secured.”

While the piece of code was embedded on every page of the Infowars store, it reportedly only functioned when a user decided to check out. Every 1.5 seconds it would scrape the contents of the payment fields and transmit them to a server in Lithuania located at “google-analyitics.org.

Infowars did not immediately respond to our request for comment but Jones sent ZDNet a lengthy rant that boils down to something like, I havenÂ’t been pwned! It reads in part:

The corporate press is claiming that a Magento plugin to the shopping cart was the point of entry, but that is not true. Infowarsstore.com has never installed that plugin. We use some of the top internet security companies in the nation and they have reported to us that this is a zero-day hack probably carried out by leftist stay behind networks hiding inside US intelligence agencies [...]

The hack took place less than 24 hours ago; it is undoubtedly the hacker or hacker group that then reported this to the establishment corporate press in an attempt to scare business away from Infowarstore.com.
Jones went on to accuse “big tech, the communist Chinese, and the Democratic party” of being behind a sweeping effort to de-platform Infowars. We’ve reached out to Magento to confirm Jones’s claims that the point of entry did not involve one of the e-commerce company’s plugins and that he’s working closely with its “top security people”.

ItÂ’s also a little shocking to hear that Infowars has 1,600 customers in a single day. As Buzzfeed has outlined in detail, the site traffics almost exclusively in supplements with little-to-no provable health benefits that can be found elsewhere for a fraction of the price.

One lab test of a supplement called Anthroplex concluded that itÂ’s simply a zinc supplement that contains very little zinc. The lab claimed a more effective dose could be purchased for $7 while Anthroplex retails for $42.

Jones claims that many of the customers who made purchases in the time that the malware was active were re-orders, so their information may have not been stolen. Congratulations to them, I guess?

Image inside Nov 15 - US Has Spent $5,900,000,000,000 on War Since 2001: Study

| By RAZAH CUTS - 1 day ago



A new report from Brown University is aiming to provide a close estimate of the overall cost to the US government of its myriad post-9/11 wars and assorted global wars on terror. The estimate is that $5.933 trillion has been spent through fiscal year 2019.


This is, of course, vastly higher than official figures, owing to the Pentagon trying to oversimplify the costs into simply overseas contingency operations. It is only when one considers the cost of medical and disability care for soldiers, and future such costs, along with things like the interest on the extra money borrowed for the wars, that the true cost becomes clear.

That sort of vast expenditure is only the costs and obligations of the wars so far, and with little sign of them ending, they are only going to grow. In particular, a generation of wars is going to further add to the medical costs for veteransÂ’ being consistently deployed abroad.

Starting in late 2001, the US has engaged in wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen, and elsewhere around the world. Many of those wars have become more or less permanent operations, with no consideration of ending them under any circumstances.

44 dead dogs found in freezer of New Jersey woman’s home

A New Jersey woman was arrested after investigators found 44 dead dogs in plastic bags inside freezers and another 130 pooches living in “deplorable and inhumane conditions,” state police said Wednesday.

Donna Roberts, 65, of Oakshade Road in Shamong Township, is facing animal cruelty charges after state police investigators and inspectors from the Burlington County Health Department responded to her home Tuesday for an inspection.

The overpowering smell of animal feces and ammonia was so strong inside Roberts’ home that several of the investigators got dizzy and became nauseous, state police said. A subsequent search of the home revealed 130 living dogs and 44 dead animals that were packaged in plastic bags and kept in freezers throughout the house of horrors, state police announced.

Four of the dogs were in such bad shape that they had to be rushed to an emergency veterinary clinic. The remaining dogs were treated at the scene by animal welfare workers, state police said.

“Although the circumstance surrounding the demise of the 44 dogs that were discovered inside plastic bags in freezers remain under investigation, the deplorable and inhumane living conditions the rescued dogs were forced to endure is tragic,” NJ State Police Col. Patrick Callahan said in a statement.

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina said his office obtained a search warrant for Roberts’ home after concerns were raised about the welfare of animals on the property following a recently adopted ordinance regarding the housing of animals.

“We are appalled by the horrendous conditions these dogs were subjected to, and as a result, I authorized charges against the property owner, Donna Roberts.”

Roberts, who was charged with animal cruelty, has been released pending a court date, state police said.

Reached by phone, Roberts claimed that the puppies were all stillborn and that she forgot about the dead animals after putting them in baggies and storing them in her freezer seven years ago.

“I forgot all about them, they were in the cellar,” Roberts said. “They were in a freezer, and that’s what breeders do when dogs die. I forgot all about them. They were born dead and I didn’t kill them. They’re making a big deal out of nothing.”

Roberts said she and her boyfriend stored the animals to be sent to a veterinarian in Alabama to be autopsied, but claims the animal corpses in her basement simply slipped her mind. Her boyfriend, whom she declined to identify, died last year of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, she said.

Roberts said she raised a variety of breeds, including c00nhounds, Labradors, Boston terrier mixes and Havanese, as well as poodles, boxers and West Highland white terriers.

Her home was inspected following the passage of an ordinance in Shamong Township that capped the number of dogs at any private residence at 14, she said.

“Oh, most certainly,” Roberts said when asked if she plans to fight the charges. “I didn’t do anything wrong.”
