Jun 18 - Netanyahu ordered illegal shredding of docs before Bennett takeover|
@news By People Talk 9 minutes ago
Shortly before Israel's Naftali Bennett took over as prime minister, his predecessor Benjamin Netanyahu ordered documents be shredded in his office, a report claimed yesterday. Sources who worked for Netanyahu said the former prime minister ordered them to discard the documents on Sunday, one day before the new government was due to take office. It was unclear which or how many documents were allegedly destroyed.
According to both civil service regulations and a cabinet decision, the shredding of documents is illegal. All documents, whether public or private, are meant to be preserved in the office's archives, particularly documents pertaining to professional matters.
In a statement, the Prime Minister's office stated it was "unfamiliar with this issue," but claimed it would look into it. A Netanyahu spokesperson denied the claim entirely, stating that "no such thing ever happened."
The documents are stored in safes situated in an area known as the "Aquarium" where the prime ministers and their most senior aides sit. This area of the office typically contains the schedules of senior officials, documents concerning their work and other material. As mandated by law, the documents in the safes were to be moved to the office's archives to be filed so that Bennett, his ministers and his senior aides could access them.
The report quoted unnamed staff who worked for the former prime minister and reported that they had been ordered to shred the documents on Sunday morning, hours before a coalition of parties working to remove Netanyahu from office took over. The staffers said that the order came directly from Netanyahu himself.
On Monday, Netanyahu handed the office and its formal powers over to Bennett after his 12-year rule. The meeting was reportedly unusually abrupt, ending without a traditional handshake, ceremony, or photo-op.

Jun 18 - Man shot next to two children in New York|
@news By People Talk 2 hours ago
Two young children narrowly missed getting hit by gunfire during a shooting on a sidewalk in New York on Thursday evening.
The New York Police Department (NYPD) is asking the public for help in identifying two men involved in the incident, one of whom opened fire on another man multiple times while the victim was on the ground next to the children.
Video footage from the incident, which took place in the Bronx, shows a man running away from a gunman before falling to the ground, taking the two young children down with him.
One of the a*sailants, dressed in all black with the majority of his face covered, runs up to the group and continues shooting at the man at near-point-blank range as the kids Â— ages 5 and 10 Â— scramble around him.
The victim and children try to get up and run away multiple times as the gunman continues to fire.
"Yes, those are children with the victim, who were very fortunately not injured," the NYPD wrote in a tweet accompanying the video it released Friday.

UK's ÂŁ2bn drop in EU exports 'a disaster'|
@news By People Talk 2 hours ago
The UK has experienced a ÂŁ2 billion loss of exports to the EU at the first three months of this year, a number described as a Â“disasterÂ” by the UKÂ’s Food and Drink Federation (FDF).
According to new figures published by the FDF on Friday, the UKÂ’s food and drink exports to non-EU markets were higher than sales to the EU in the first quarter of 2021.
Â“The loss of ÂŁ2 billion of exports to the EU is a disaster for our industry, and is a very clear indication of the scale of losses that UK manufacturers face in the longer-term due to new trade barriers with the EU,Â” said Dominic Goudie, head of international trade at the FDF.
The FDF, which is an industry lobby group, has revealed that UK sales to the EU has fallen by 47 percent compared with the same period last year, due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and postÂ–Brexit trade relations.
Sales to Ireland dropped by more than two thirds over the first three months of this year, while exports to Germany, Spain and Italy plunged by more than 50 percent since March 2020.
UK imports from the EU also experienced a loss of 10 percent, with vegetables, wine and fruit falling between 14% and 20%.
The FDF said the fall in EUÂ–UK trade will be extended Â“when full checks are implemented at UK borders in 2022.Â”
Meanwhile, John Whitehead of the Food & Drink Exporters a*sociation criticized the situation, saying that Â“whilst some of this large drop can be put down to end of year, stockpiling [and] significant business has been lost as a direct result of the additional bureaucracy, customs delays and costs of trading with the EUÂ”.

Jun 18 - Utah Mom Blames Pfizer & Moderna Covid Vax for Hospitalizing Both Son & Husband|
@news By 4REAL 6 hours ago
My son being an athlete and only 17 years old wasn't in a high risk category, but we did feel pressured to administer the vaccine,' Romney said
'There's no other explanation': Utah mom blames COVID vaccines after her 17-year-old athlete son and her husband were BOTH hospitalized with rare blood clots after getting Pfizer and Moderna shots
A mother in Utah is blaming COVID-19 vaccines after her 17-year-old son and her husband were both hospitalized with rare blood clots soon after receiving the shots.
'There's no other explanation for what happened to my son and my husband, we are pretty certain that it was a direct result of the vaccine,' Cherie Romney said in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday.
Romney's son Everest, a healthy six-foot-nine high school basketball player, got his first Pfizer shot on April 21 and began experiencing severe symptoms less than 24 hours later, and her husband Preston suffered clots after getting a Moderna shot, she has said.
Public health officials including the CDC say that the Pfizer and Moderna shots are not a*sociated with an increased risk of rare blood clots, which were seen in a small number who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
But Romney wants to highlight her family's experience as pressure mounts to vaccinate children, who are at incredibly low risk from COVID-19, and as more colleges require young and healthy students to get vaccinated in order to return to campus.
In the interview with Fox host Tucker Carlson, Romney said that her family had felt pressured to get the vaccines out of fear they would be required for school sports or travel.
'We felt a lot of pressure to go get the vaccine. We thought, let's hurry and go get that done before the summer season of basketball starts,' she said.
'I didn't think there was a chance my son or my husband or myself really were going to experience some significant side effects from COVID,' Romney said.
'My son being an athlete and only 17 years old wasn't in a high risk category, but we did feel pressured to administer the vaccine,' she added.
Romney said that Everest began to develop swelling in his neck later that night, and that five days later he was unable to move his head or neck.
'I took him to the pediatrician and the pediatrician said it has nothing to do with the shot, it really doesn't, I think it is a pulled neck muscle,' she said.
Eight days later, Everest was in the pediatric ICU with two blood clots in his brain and one in his neck, Romney said.
While hospitalized, Everest spoke out saying that he also believed the vaccine played a role.
'I think that it caused the swelling and the swelling caused the clots. I don't think that it was directly related, but indirectly the cause of the clots,' he told KSL-TV.
Officials at the hospital declined to comment when pressed by reporters at the NBC affiliate, referring inquires to the Utah Department of Health, which sent a statement.
'To date, there has been no evidence that either of the mRNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) cause the extremely rare blood clotting issues that have been confirmed with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine,' the statement said.
'Millions of people in the United States have received COVID-19 vaccines under the most intense safety monitoring in American history,' the department said.
Romney says that her husband Preston was hospitalized 'with over 100 blood clots in his lungs' the weekend after her son was discharged from the hospital in May.
She has said that her husband had to have a quarter of his lungs removed to treat the clots. He has also since been released and is in stable condition.
In the U.S. about 313 million doses of COVID vaccines have been administered. The CDC's VAERS reporting database tallies 3,848 blood clotting incidents across all three authorized vaccines, suggesting the incidence of clots is roughly 1 in 100,000.
The severe clots a*sociated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are even more rare, and nearly all of them were found in young adult women under the age of 50, according to the CDC.
The background rate of blood clots that normally occur every year is significantly higher, with roughly 1 or 2 out of every 1,000 Americans experiencing some form of clotting, according to the CDC.
However, Romney's troubling story comes as U.S. health authorities push to vaccinate children under the age of 16, worrying parents who fear there is too little clinical trial data to make an informed decision.
Romney's son Everest, a healthy six-foot-nine high school basketball player, got his first Pfizer shot on April 21 and began experiencing severe symptoms less than 24 hours later
On Thursday, the CDC is set to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the higher-than-expected number of young men who have had heart inflammation after receiving the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
The emergency CDC meeting will address the 226 plausible cases of heart inflammation in young people - mainly affecting teenage boys and young men - after receiving their second doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
While the CDC acknowledged last week that the number of cases was higher than expected, they said it was still rare.
On Wednesday top advisors in the UK reversed course on the planned rollout COVID vaccines to children, saying more data is needed.
Experts on the UK's Joint Committee on Vaccination are understood to have raised 'serious ethical concerns' about vaccinating children because of the tiny risk they face of becoming seriously ill.
The group will release fresh guidance on the highly controversial topic of vaccinating children by the end of the week, according to the Telegraph.
It will urge the prime minister to hold off vaccinating under-18s in the immediate future and wait for more safety data to come out of the US and Israel.
Everest was hospitalized in the pediatric ICU with two blood clots in his brain and one in his neck. He was released last month and has been recovering at home

Jun 18 - mypillow guy confronted by jordan klepper..... "you guys are horrible"|
@news By messy marv stan 6 hours ago
https://www.mediaite.com/ .. -are-horrible/
The Daily ShowÂ’s Jordan Klepper has made a lot of hay by visiting MAGA rallies for great comedic gain and using his deadpan delivery to illustrate many of the willfully misinformed followers of former President Donald Trump.
Last week, Klepper visited a MAGA rally hosted by MyPillow CEO, and chief stolen election conspiracy theorist, Mike Lindell, and the interview between the two went about how you would imagine
The segment opened with interviews with rally-goers that were pretty much what one would expect: nonmedia savvy individuals leaving themselves vulnerable to editing that makes them look even worse than they reveal themselves to be. But it was the confrontation between Lindell and Klepper that was the Â“money shotÂ” as it were.
Klepper skeptically confronted the MyPillow CEO on his stolen election conspiracies. Â“This is the crime of the century youÂ’re describing and they came to the MyPillow guy,Â” he said, before challenging him on his efforts. Â“Is this helping, Mike? Ginning all this up?Â”
Â“Do you know what this is doing?Â” Lindell avoided the question and hit back at Klepper, who answered Â“ItÂ’s perpetuating anger, fear, and attacking our democracy.Â”
Klepper then compared LindellÂ’s constant promising of new evidence that will finally prove his baseless conspiracies to other unsolved mysteries. Â“ItÂ’s like watching that Bigfoot show,Â” the Daily Show host said. Â“They donÂ’t find Bigfoot at the end, but if you tune in next week, maybe itÂ’s going to happen.Â”
Lindell didnÂ’t like that comparison and stormed off with a disgusted wave, saying, Â“You guys are horrible.Â”

Jun 18 - Dow falls more than 500 points to close out its worst week since October|
@news By Sin 6 hours ago
Stocks fell on Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average on pace for its worst weekly loss since January, as traders worry the Federal Reserve could start raising rates sooner than expected. Economic comeback plays led the market sell-off.
The blue-chip average dropped 413 points, bringing its week-to-date losses to 3.1%. The S&P 500 fell 0.9%, pushing its loss this week to more than 1.5%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite dipped 0.8%.
St. Louis Federal Reserve President Jim Bullard told CNBCÂ’s Â“Squawk BoxÂ” it was natural for the Fed to tilt a little Â“hawkishÂ” this week and that the first rate increase from the central bank would likely come in 2022. His comments came after the Fed on Wednesday added two rate hikes to its 2023 forecast and increased its inflation projection for the year, putting pressure on stock prices.
Â“The fear held by some investors is that if the Fed tightens policy sooner than expected to help cool inflationary pressures, this could weigh on future economic growth,Â” Truist Advisory Services chief market strategist Keith Lerner said in a note. To be sure, he added it would be premature to give up on the so-called value trade right now.
Pockets of the market most sensitive to the economic rebound led the sell-off this week.
The S&P 500 energy sector and industrials are down 4.5% and 3.3%, respectively, week to date. Financials and materials meanwhile, are down more than 5% each. These groups had been market leaders this year on the back of the economic reopening.
The decline in stocks came as the FedÂ’s actions caused a drastic flattening of the so-called Treasury yield curve. This means the yields of shorter-duration Treasurys Â— like the 2-year note Â— while longer-duration yields like the benchmark 10-year declined. The retreat in long-dated bond yields reflects less optimism toward economic growth, while the jump in short-end yields shows the expectations of the Fed raising rates.
This phenomenon is hurting bank stocks particularly as bank earnings could take a hit when the spread between short-term and long-term rates narrows. Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase shares on Friday lost more than 2% each. Citigroup fell by 1.7% and was headed for its 12th straight daily decline.
Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said Wednesday that officials have discussed tapering bond buying and would at some point begin slowing the a*set purchases.
Â“This weekÂ’s first whiff of an eventual change in Fed policy was a reminder that emergency monetary conditions and the free-money era will ultimately end,Â” strategists at MRB Partners wrote in a note. Â“We expect a series of incremental retreats from the FedÂ’s benign inflation outlook in the coming months.Â”
Commodity prices have been under pressure this week as China attempts to cool rising prices and the U.S. dollar strengthens. Copper, gold and platinum fell once again on Friday.
Friday also coincided with the quarterly Â“quadruple witchingÂ” in which options and futures on indexes and equities expire. Many expected trading to be more volatile in light of this event.

Jun 17 - Kim Jong Un Says Pyongyang Ready for Dialogue or Confrontation With US|
@news By People Talk 1 day ago
In June, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appeared in public for the first time after an almost month-long absence, turning up at the first meeting of the political bureau of the governing party, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
North Korea's Kim Jong Un stated at a plenary meeting of the central committee of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea that the country must prepare for "both dialogue and confrontation" with the United States during the presidency of Joe Biden, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Thursday.
Kim, in his remarks, stressed that preparation for confrontation is especially important "in order to protect the dignity of our state" and guarantee a "peaceful environment".
During the meeting, Kim outlined a strategy of relations with Washington, noting the "policy tendency of the newly emerged US administration", according to KCNA.
The North Korean leader also called "for sharply and promptly reacting to and coping with the fast-changing situation and concentrating efforts on taking stable control of the situation on the Korean peninsula",
In early June, Kim appeared in public for the first time after almost a month - an absence that triggered another round of speculation regarding his health and political status.
His comments in regard to relations with the United States come after Pyongyang earlier accused Washington of "hostile policy". US President Joe Biden outlined that he would not meet Kim unless there is a denuclearization pledge from the North Korean leader.
Currently, the White House said it will use "a calibrated practical approach" with regard to its relations with North Korea.

Ex-Facebook VR exec says heÂ’ll turn U.S. troops into Â‘invincible technomancers,Â’|
@news By People Talk 1 day ago
Anduril founder Palmer Luckey announced Thursday that his start-up has raised an additional $450 million in funding, which will be used to Â“turn allied warf*ghters into invincible technomancers.Â” The company is now valued at $4.6 billion.
Luckey is best known for selling Oculus to Facebook in 2014 for $2 billion before he was fired in 2017 amid controversy for his political donations and financial support of far-right groups. But his announcement of the new funding was unusual.
Â“We just raised $450M in Series D funding for Anduril,Â” Luckey said on Twitter. Â“It will be used to turn American and allied warf*ghters into invincible technomancers who wield the power of autonomous systems to safely accomplish their mission. Our future roadmap is going to blow you away, stay tuned!
Technomancers sometimes appear in post-modern role-playing video games and in science fiction, often as sort of magical wizard-like people with technology enhancements.
Anduril Technologies is a defense company that, among other things, provides border control technology, including towers with cameras and infrared sensors that use artificial intelligence to track movement, in states such as Texas and California.
The company said itÂ’s capable of deploying its artificial intelligence platform, called Lattice, in other places, such as military bases in the U.S. to help detect and track instructions by other people and vehicles, including drones.
Elad Gil, who led the funding round, said Thursday that society isnÂ’t prepared for the growing number of threats and that companies such as Anduril can help in a multitude of areas, from natural disasters to cyberattacks.
He said Anduril provides Â“sensor networks, towers, drones, and powerful software that ties it all together Â— whose potential uses include protecting our troops on base, defending our energy infrastructure, combating wildfires, stopping human traffickers, creating a Â“virtual borderÂ” (a rare bipartisan idea), and f*ghting drug cartels. Many of these potential uses can directly save lives.Â”
Other tech companies are working to make American troops more lethal. Microsoft, for example, won an Army contract in March worth up to $21.9 billion to provide special versions of its HoloLens augmented reality headsets to U.S. f*ghters.
Andreessen Horowitz, 8VC, Founders Fund, General Catalyst, Lux Capital, Valor Equity Partners and D1 Capital all participated in the round.

Jun 17 - Supply crisis could send oil prices soaring above $100 per barrel|
@news By People Talk 1 day ago
Incredible demand, inflation, and shareholder pressure on oil supermajors to drastically cut emissions could lead to an oil crisis and oil prices above $100 within 3 years, says David Tawil, president of Maglan Capital.
Tawil has been very bullish on oil for some time, and thinks that the prices could hit $100 per barrel soon.
In the near term, oil prices have more room to rise, both from inflationary standpoint but also from demand standpoint, he told Fox Business.
Oil prices are set to rise Â“consistently and considerably now into the end of the year,Â” Tawil said.
Moreover, supply from the oil supermajors could be also coming off, due to shareholder and environmental pressure. In the United States, the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) concerns, as well as the US AdministrationÂ’s push toward renewables and away from fossil fuels, would also contribute to lower supply and lead to a supply crunch in coming years, according to Maglan CapitalÂ’s Tawil.
The worldÂ’s largest independent commodity traders are also bullish on oil, not ruling out $100 oil.
Although oil may not be headed to a new supercycle, prices still have room to rise from current levels because of a strong demand rebound and expected tightness in supply, top executives at Trafigura, Vitol, and Glencore said at the FT Commodities Global Summit earlier this week.
There is a chance for $100 oil, TrafiguraÂ’s CEO Jeremy Weir said, adding Â“You need higher prices to incentivizeÂ… and also maybe to build on the cost of carbon in the future as well. You also need to attract capital in the business.Â”
Â“Higher from hereÂ” for the next six months, Glencore's Head of Oil Marketing, Alex Sanna, told the same event.
Russell Hardy, CEO at the world's biggest independent oil trader Vitol, also said that $100 per barrel oil is "of course a possibility," but warned the overenthusiastic bulls that "we're in a slightly artificial market at the moment," as the OPEC+ group still has around 5.5 million barrels per day (bpd) to bring back to the market, by April 2022 per current plans.
