          Senate Supports Moore But Not Cain for Fed       Comment   Translate Page      

When looking at the dumpster fire we call the American political environment, I think we can all agree that the last thing we really needed was more Herman Cain. As I explained yesterday in my Senate Republicans Wish the Democrats Could Filibuster Trump’s Nominees piece, the senior GOP leadership in Congress certainly feels that way. They were already begging rank-and-file senators to call the White House and warn them off nominating Cain for a position on the Federal Reserve before Cain called them a “bunch of yahoos” on Wednesday night.

Herman Cain, whose prospects for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors have grown shaky before President Donald Trump even nominates him, likely gave his detractors in the U.S. Senate more reason to oppose his confirmation with comments at a University of Kansas lecture Wednesday night.

Cain, 73, the long-time business executive and 2012 presidential candidate, warned against the dangers of socialism, renewable energy and Medicare for all. He described the Senate Banking Committee, which would vet him if he were nominated, “as a bunch of yahoos.” He compared the right to health care to the right to own a Cadillac, and said God would decide when it was time to stop using fossil fuels.

“When God is ready for us not to have fossil fuels, he’ll find a way,” the former Godfather Pizza CEO told the audience at the Vickers Lecture Series at School of Business.

Cain also likened himself to Dr. Martin Luther King, and said: “You reach a point in your successful career where making more money isn’t inspiring enough.”

Cain’s reward for those remarks was to learn that his nomination is almost certainly doomed.

A fourth Republican senator announced Thursday that he would oppose Herman Cain if President Trump nominated him to the Federal Reserve Board, all but dooming his potential appointment.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), a close Trump ally, told reporters that “if I had to vote right now, there’s no way I could vote for” Cain. The president had floated the businessman for the Fed board last week.

Cramer’s opposition makes him the fourth Republican to denounce Cain’s potential nomination, effectively ending Cain’s chance at confirmation. GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Cory Gardner (Colo.) and Mitt Romney (Utah) all came out against Cain on Wednesday.

With four of the 53 Senate Republicans opposed to Cain, he would not reach the necessary 51 votes for confirmation without getting support from Democrats, which is unlikely.

I’m not certain, but it looks like perhaps the Senate Republicans are drawing a hard line against Cain so that’ll have some cover to accept the other insane nomination Trump is floating for the Fed.

Stephen Moore may have been held in contempt of court for failing to pay child support and alimony and he may owe more than $75,000 in taxes to the IRS, but that doesn’t seem disqualifying to a lot of Senate Republicans:

“I know Stephen Moore, he’s a smart man, he’s the head of Club for Growth,” said Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL). “We have to do this in regular order, but I think he would probably be a good voice on the Fed. One, he’s got to be nominated first. Second, he’s got to be confirmed.”

“I said, ‘Pay your taxes; pay your support!’” Shelby said, when asked about Moore’s financial problems.

“Stephen is a solid guy, I know Stephen pretty well. I think Stephen has been right about a few things, with regard to the Fed’s treatment of interest rates, especially,” [Sen. Kevin] Cramer said. “I want to hear more about the specific issues surrounding some of his financial situations.”

The North Dakota senator added that he did not see Moore’s run-in with the IRS or the divorce settlement being disqualifying for his nomination if he had cleared up both issues.

So, the way it looks right now, the dumpster fire will get less Herman Cain and more Stephen Moore.

          Kim Kardashian pivots to law      Comment   Translate Page      
"First year of law school," Kim Kardashian West told US Vogue in her May cover interview, "you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts." (For the record, there are a few others, too, including constitutional law and civil procedure). For Kardashian, "Torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and crim law I can do in my sleep. Took my first test, I got a 100. Super easy for me."

Kardashian announced this week in the same interview that she began a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer and wants to take the California bar exam in 2022. (She is not enrolled in law school. Under California law, aspiring lawyers can undertake an apprenticeship and if they pass the bar exam, they can practice law -- even without a law school degree).

The reality superstar's pivot to becoming a lawyer -- apparently motivated by her stated desire to do more to improve the criminal justice system, "to fight to fix it," -- has prompted a mixed response. Many have predictably derided the move as idiotic, telling her to stay in her lane. Others have called the criticism sexist, highlighting the obvious comparison between Kardashian and Reese Witherspoon's character in the 2001 movie "Legally Blonde," Elle Woods -- also initially dismissed in her law school efforts because of her looks and past persona.

The bottom line is this: Kardashian is inspiring for choosing a new path as a 38-year-old mother of three -- and she is also the nauseatingly privileged proof that in today's America, no option is off-limits for the very wealthy.

In many ways, this is the most interesting thing Kim Kardashian West has ever done. And it says a lot about the susceptibility of the public and press to her carefully-constructed image that so few saw this coming.

There are some obvious ways in which this path makes sense for Kardashian. Her father, Robert Kardashian, was a well-known lawyer, part of OJ Simpson's defense team. She has already demonstrated an interest in the law, making herself heard on criminal justice issues and playing a significant part last year in President Trump's release of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman who'd been in an Alabama prison on a nonviolent drug charge since 1996.

Meeting with Trump, alongside CNN commentator and activist Van Jones, plus several lawyers, Kardashian West helped persuade the President with a force of argument Jones described as "the most effective, emotionally intelligent intervention that I've ever seen in American politics." She has also worked for months with #cut50, a bipartisan advocacy group aiming to reform the criminal-justice system. Compared with some of her other ventures -- advertising dangerous slimming teas to her legions of young female fans, for example -- this looks not just like a step in a far more positive direction, but a break from the brand the Kardashian family has built over the years.

The Kardashians are described in public discourse variously as mercenary, feminist, impressive, groundbreaking, and sickeningly superficial. There are strong arguments to be made for every case, but despite so many opposing characteristics, they tend to be referred to as a monolith -- not individuals so much as component parts of a vast, unprecedented money machine.

Kim Kardashian, for years the most famous member of her family, was somehow the most Kardashian. She was the most polished, the most bankable (until sister Kylie Jenner's ascent), almost inhumanly adapted to the constant whirl of 5 a.m. workouts, three-hour makeup sessions, photo shoots and paparazzi that the machine demanded. She leaned in to the living doll persona, which the media so eagerly bestowed upon her, and as a result, many now have difficulty imagining her as anything but that.

Throughout 16 seasons of the reality show that made her family world-famous, Kim's demeanor has scarcely changed. A couple of upsetting instances aside, she has remained placid throughout, more prone to asking questions than volunteering confidences herself. When emotions ran high as Caitlin Jenner went public with her transition, Kim was often the mediator, allowing everyone their say, but intervening to defuse tense conversations when necessary.

In a way, it is her predictability that makes Kim Kardashian such comforting television. With her, you always know what you're getting. In retrospect, some of those considered responses signpost a personality that could be mesh with a career in law.

When in 2017, Kardashian described the process of identifying the men who robbed her at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room in October 2016, she was matter of fact. She itemized events without adding color or emotion, even noting that the men who had attacked her were 'pretty honest' in their recall of that night. Her most revealing comment was that it was "interesting" to know that they had been following her for over a year. She added that she was "thankful" for the experience, as it had afforded her "all the background info'"she needed on how she could protect herself in future.

Her recent foray into criminal justice also isn't the first time that digging below her contoured surface has revealed unexpected depths. Following the Parkland shooting last year, she tweeted to urge Congress to do its job and "protect Americans from senseless gun violence." She also took to Twitter in 2015 to denounce lax gun laws, after David Conley bought a gun online to kill his ex-girlfriend, her husband, and her six children, including his own son (she tweeted, "Does this not sicken you?"). She did so again after the 2017 Las Vegas music festival shooting to share an image denouncing high capacity firearms as inconsistent with the Second Amendment.

Every time she has spoken out on gun laws, Kim has been met with derogatory remarks such as, "Stick to selfies." But she has backed up her tweets. In 2016, she met with gun violence survivors from Sandy Hook and San Bernardino. For several years, she's been a creative council member of the organization Everytown For Gun Safety, which is dedicated to gun safety and fighting for legislative reform. In 2017, she recognized National Gun Violence Awareness Day by speaking out against a bill signed by Trump that revoked an Obama-era regulation. She may not always broadcast it, but Kim Kardashian does her homework.

As far as her metamorphosis from reality star into woke lawyer goes, the proof will be in the pudding. If her previous activities -- not to mention the acquisitive tendencies of her mother, Kris Jenner -- are any indication, within the next decade we will see a Kardashian law firm, capitalizing on the family name but well-stocked with qualified lawyers to ensure it goes the distance (and makes as much money as possible). For now though, as a woman whose career thus far has been fed by sex appeal and social media, Kardashian's move is a bold one, picking a direction that demands a completely different skill set, and flies in the face of expectations. When asked by Vogue what she will be remembered for, she replied aptly, "For my many talents."

          Климат      Comment   Translate Page      
В этом посте я вам расскажу, почему я думаю, что нам крышка и никто уже нам не поможет.

Вообще, наука о климате — климатология — попадает в поле интересов СМИ только в последние годы, хотя первые действительно содержательные исследования и проекции антропогенной деятельности и её воздействия на экосистемы планеты начали появляться ещё в шестидесятые годы. Сами нефтяные корпорации заказывали проведение подобных исследований и выстроение проекций на будущее, а затем, как уже общеизвестно, годами спонсировали кампании по замалчиванию и маргинализации результатов этих самых исследований, если их получали третьи лица.

Несмотря на то, что в высших кабинетах власти в огромном количестве стран сидят самоубийственные олигофрены, которые до сих пор позволяют себе разве что не шутки шутить на тему изменения климата, его последствия (тизер, так сказать) мы можем наблюдать воочию, уже сегодня. Пройдёмся по новостям за последнюю неделю.

11 апреля Midwest немножечко подтопило из–за необычного количества осадков, которые единоразово выпали в этом месте, фермеры понесли многомиллиардные убытки (которые не будут оплачены государством)

https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather–news/us–disaster–aid–wont–cover–lost–crops–in–midwest–floods–farmers–out–millions–of–dollars/70007922

12 апреля случился первый ураган в Непале. Вообще — первый, у них за всю историю их не было ни разу, у них даже слова в диалекте такого нету.

https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586–019–01159–w

Фермеры, в частности выращивающие кофе, перебираются из Центральной в Северную Америку из–за того, что урожай бьёт отрицательные рекорды на родине.

Поголовье сардин сократилось на 98% и теперь ожидается запрет на их отлов в северной части Тихого океана.

https://www.sfchronicle.com/science/article/Dramatic–sardine–population–decline–means–likely–13718772.php

Сегодня начинается затяжной ураган, угрожающий всем Южным Штатам одновременно

https://abcnews.go.com/US/major–severe–storms–tornado–outbreak–expected–deep–south/story?id=62375543

Если будете интересоваться вопросом, как ваш покорный, то сможете находить такие новости чуть–ли не каждую неделю. Про сокращение популяции насекомых в Европе, про практически полный вылов всего поголовья трески в Балтийском море, много про что ещё.

Что я отметил для себя и почему решил написать пост: события очевидно начинают ускоряться. Все эти успокаивающие разговоры политиков про то, что "нужно начинать действовать сегодня, чтобы к 2040м годам отказаться от использования фосилов" уже не внушают доверия, если человек интересуется новостями, которые связаны с климатом.

Реальность такова, что у нас уже тёплые течения морские и океанские потихоньку по пизде идут (рекламирую мега трекер вообще всех статов Земли без смс и бесплатно:https://earth.nullschool.net — он не всегда доступен, имейте терпение и жмите ф5, если не получится подключиться с первого раза. Ну, или попозже зайдите, оно того стоит: это карта морских потоков, волн, ветра, температуры поверхности, выбросов со2 — Вещь, короче). Реальность в том, что мы можем увидеть свободную от льда Арктику уже к 2025–26 году. Реальность в том, что вечная мерзлота тает в Канаде и России. А ведь мы сейчас по сути только ощущаем выхлоп индустриальной цивилизации 20 летней давности! То есть, если мы даже сейчас отрубим абсолютно всё индустриальное производство по всему миру и уйдём жить в пещеры и поля, то мы не сможем остановить потепление средней температуры Земли в течение следующих 20 лет как минимум, причём потепление будет идти теми же темпами. Очевидно, что цель Парижских соглашений — знаменитые 2 градуса Цельсия до 2020 года — недостижима, и уже сегодня мы можем читать мысли учёных, изучающих Арктику, что мы можем смотреть на потенциал до 4 градусов вплоть до 2020 года. А ведь есть ещё и учёные, которые говорят (не без оснований), что Межправительственная комиссия ООН по вопросам изменения климата не учитывает тот факт, что океан поглощает и отражает огромное количество тепла, которое поступает к нам от Солнца. Нагревая общую температуру воздуха мы лишаем океан той разницы в температуре с поверхностью, которая позволяет ему эффективно охлаждать Землю, проливая дожди от побережья до середины континента. А ведь есть ещё планктон, который производит до двух третей кислорода на планете, и существованию которого угрожает ацидификация океанов.

Ну вы понели, проблем ОЧЕНЬ много, а решений, из тех, которые политики могут предложить людям и корпорациям, просто не существует как технически так и объективно. Мы можем хоть расстреливать людей, курящих сигареты и жгущих костры, но мы всё равно не добьёмся предотвращения грядущих климатических катастроф. А уж если думать не утрируя, то и подавно: вы посмотрите на Францию одну! А ведь это — экономически неолиберальный подход к исключению товара из обращения — отымать нельзя, нужно просто сделать дороже, а потом мега дорого. И он не сработал, наглядно демонстрируя зависимость современного общества от бензина, дизеля и других видов топлива для двигателей внутреннего сгорания.

Тут и там иногда можно почитать пик–ми–ап новости типа "Ура! Европа согласовала план по отказу от ДВС к 2035 году!", но что–то никто вообще как будто бы не думает о том, насколько наш мир хрупкий. Как вы думаете, долго протянет международная торговля, если сбор урожая будет провальным одновременно в России, США, Китае и Бразилии? Да даже пускай только в США и России? Вы думаете, экспорт–импорт будут бизнес эс южуал работать? Цены взлетят, но и это подобие торговли в стиле Венесуэлы, но на рынке зерна, просуществует недолго. Сталкиваясь с невозможностью обеспечить продуктовую безопасность, скорее всего, экспорт зерновых просто будет взаимоисключён из торговли, а странам останется рассчитывать на локальное производство — очень дорогое и не покрывающее потребностей как минимум четверти населения страны.

Что в таком случае будет делать государство — элиты, главы корпораций, всяческие сенаторы–премьеры–министры? А я думаю, что они окопаются просто. У них деньги есть, люди, готовые им служить до конца за эти деньги и за гарантию безопасного размещения для себя и семей у них также найдутся. Поэтому, собственно, для них можно сохранять статус–кво в политике до самого последнего дня. Им просто не выгодно сейчас что–то делать, даже если бы это что–то могло изменить картину с нашим климатом хотя бы на градус назад.

Из неофициальных прогнозов, как всегда бывает, можно выделить две крайности:

1)Эффект изменения климата слишком глобален и инертен, только наши внуки действительно столкнутся с ним в полную силу

2)Нам осталось в лучшем случае 8 лет до каскадно воспроизводящих друг друга цепочки катастроф, гуманитарных бедствий и массовых смертей гражданского населения от голода и нехватки медикаментов.

Истина обычно где–то посередине, поэтому лично я думаю, что у нас есть ещё около 10–15 лет относительно комфортной жизни даже в случае реализации наиболее пессимистичных сценариев развития ситуации.

Цените своё время, вот что.

GoFundMe Returns Over $400,000 Scammed By New Jersey Grifters

Tue, 12/25/2018 - 17:20

GoFundMe has returned over $400,000 to people who donated to a trio of scam artists who fabricated a story about a homeless good Samaritan. 

39-year-old Mark D'Amico (left), 28-year-old Kate McClure (center) and 35-year-old Johnny Bobbitt (right) are facing theft and conspiracy charges.

"All donors who contributed to this GoFundMe campaign have been fully refunded," GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne said in an email, adding that "while this type of behavior by an individual is extremely rare, it's unacceptable and clearly it has consequences."

The company is fully cooperating with investigators. 

Kate McClure, 28, Mark D'Amico, 39, and drug-addicted homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt, 35, were charged with theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception in November, after the three concocted a story that Bobbitt had given McClure his last $20 after her car ran out of fuel, leaving her stranded on the side of I-95 in a dangerous Philadelphia neighborhood. 

The GoFundMe scam was uncovered after McClure and D'Amico refused to give Bobbitt over $300,000 of the $402,000 raised - causing Bobbit to lawyer up, alleging that the couple committed fraud and conspiracy by taking large amounts of the donations to "enjoy a lifestyle they could not afford" and using the account as "their personal piggy bank."

The net proceeds were $360,000 after fees, which went into an account controlled by McClure. Bobbitt received approximately $75,000 of it according to Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina.

"The entire campaign was predicated on a lie," said Coffina during a November press conference. "Less than an hour after the GoFundMe campaign went live McClure, in a text exchange with a friend, stated that the story about Bobbitt assisting her was fake," he said. 

In one of the texts read by Coffina, McClure allegedly wrote to a friend, "Ok, so wait, the gas part is completely made up but the guy isn't. I had to make something up to make people feel bad. So, shush about the made up stuff." -ABC

After the story went sideways - and reports emerged that the couple had pilfered most of the money meant for Bobbitt, police raided McClure and D'Amico's home looking for evidence in the case, and seizing a BMW they bought with charitable donations.

          Senate Supports Moore But Not Cain for Fed       Comment   Translate Page      

When looking at the dumpster fire we call the American political environment, I think we can all agree that the last thing we really needed was more Herman Cain. As I explained yesterday in my Senate Republicans Wish the Democrats Could Filibuster Trump’s Nominees piece, the senior GOP leadership in Congress certainly feels that way. They were already begging rank-and-file senators to call the White House and warn them off nominating Cain for a position on the Federal Reserve before Cain called them a “bunch of yahoos” on Wednesday night.

Herman Cain, whose prospects for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors have grown shaky before President Donald Trump even nominates him, likely gave his detractors in the U.S. Senate more reason to oppose his confirmation with comments at a University of Kansas lecture Wednesday night.

Cain, 73, the long-time business executive and 2012 presidential candidate, warned against the dangers of socialism, renewable energy and Medicare for all. He described the Senate Banking Committee, which would vet him if he were nominated, “as a bunch of yahoos.” He compared the right to health care to the right to own a Cadillac, and said God would decide when it was time to stop using fossil fuels.

“When God is ready for us not to have fossil fuels, he’ll find a way,” the former Godfather Pizza CEO told the audience at the Vickers Lecture Series at School of Business.

Cain also likened himself to Dr. Martin Luther King, and said: “You reach a point in your successful career where making more money isn’t inspiring enough.”

Cain’s reward for those remarks was to learn that his nomination is almost certainly doomed.

A fourth Republican senator announced Thursday that he would oppose Herman Cain if President Trump nominated him to the Federal Reserve Board, all but dooming his potential appointment.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), a close Trump ally, told reporters that “if I had to vote right now, there’s no way I could vote for” Cain. The president had floated the businessman for the Fed board last week.

Cramer’s opposition makes him the fourth Republican to denounce Cain’s potential nomination, effectively ending Cain’s chance at confirmation. GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Cory Gardner (Colo.) and Mitt Romney (Utah) all came out against Cain on Wednesday.

With four of the 53 Senate Republicans opposed to Cain, he would not reach the necessary 51 votes for confirmation without getting support from Democrats, which is unlikely.

I’m not certain, but it looks like perhaps the Senate Republicans are drawing a hard line against Cain so that’ll have some cover to accept the other insane nomination Trump is floating for the Fed.

Stephen Moore may have been held in contempt of court for failing to pay child support and alimony and he may owe more than $75,000 in taxes to the IRS, but that doesn’t seem disqualifying to a lot of Senate Republicans:

“I know Stephen Moore, he’s a smart man, he’s the head of Club for Growth,” said Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL). “We have to do this in regular order, but I think he would probably be a good voice on the Fed. One, he’s got to be nominated first. Second, he’s got to be confirmed.”

“I said, ‘Pay your taxes; pay your support!’” Shelby said, when asked about Moore’s financial problems.

“Stephen is a solid guy, I know Stephen pretty well. I think Stephen has been right about a few things, with regard to the Fed’s treatment of interest rates, especially,” [Sen. Kevin] Cramer said. “I want to hear more about the specific issues surrounding some of his financial situations.”

The North Dakota senator added that he did not see Moore’s run-in with the IRS or the divorce settlement being disqualifying for his nomination if he had cleared up both issues.

So, the way it looks right now, the dumpster fire will get less Herman Cain and more Stephen Moore.

          Facebook's Oculus ships VR controllers with creepy hidden messages: 'Big Brother is Watching'      Comment   Translate Page      

Ramin Talaie/Corbis via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Tens of thousands of Oculus Touch controllers are delivering a little bit more than virtual reality.

The handheld devices from the Facebook-owned VR company are being shipped to consumers with hidden messages inside the controllers that say “The Masons Were Here” and “This Space For Rent," the company said.

"Unfortunately, some 'easter egg' labels meant for prototypes accidentally made it onto the internal hardware for tens of thousands of Touch controllers," Oculus co-founder Nate Mitchell announced on Twitter on Friday, referring to the hardware that will accompany the new Oculus Quest and Rift S headsets set to ship this spring.

"The messages on final production hardware say 'This Space For Rent' & 'The Masons Were Here.' A few dev kits shipped with 'Big Brother is Watching' and 'Hi iFixit! We See You!' but those were limited to non-consumer units," Mitchell wrote. The latter two messages were only in the prototypes shipped to developers.

iFixit is a group-sourced online repair manual and parts company that aims to teach consumers to repair their own electronics and reduce waste. The site posts deconstructed consumer electronics equipment whose insides might reveal such hidden text.

"While I appreciate easter eggs," Mitchell tweeted, referring to inside jokes in software and media, "these were inappropriate and should have been removed. The integrity and functionality of the hardware were not compromised, and we've fixed our process so this won't happen again."

The preemptive announcement and apology were released quickly for a company that has been criticized for being slow to react to problems with its products and services.

"This was a process error. The messages were meant as easter eggs for prototypes only and should have been removed pre-production," a Facebook spokesperson wrote to ABC News in an email. She confirmed that the units, which have yet to be shipped, will not be recalled.

Unfortunately, some “easter egg” labels meant for prototypes accidentally made it onto the internal hardware for tens of thousands of Touch controllers.

While I appreciate easter eggs, these were inappropriate and should have been removed. The integrity and functionality of the hardware were not compromised, and we've fixed our process so this won't happen again.

The mistake messages won't be visible in plain sight, the company confirmed.

"The messages are on an internal component of the controller – in other words, they’re inside the hardware," the Facebook spokeswoman wrote. "Thus, you’d have to take apart the controller to see either of the messages that will be on consumer controllers ('This Space for Rent' and 'The Masons were Here')."

          Designer makes history with the world's most expensive car      Comment   Translate Page      

Martyn Lucy/Getty Images(GENEVA) --  French hypercar maker Bugatti may have turned 110 years old this year, but it's still making history.

Bugatti unveiled the "La Voiture Noire" (The Black Car) in March at the Geneva Motor Show, a one-of-a-kind vehicle that was sold to an undisclosed customer for 16.7 million euros ($19 million).

La Voiture Noire quickly earned infamy for being the most expensive new car ever built. That was not the intention, however, of Etienne Salome, Bugatti's head of interior design who conceived of its concept.

"The aim was not to have the most expensive new car in the world [and] that was not the reason why the customer bought it," he told ABC News. "The owner didn't ask for the price."

La Voiture Noire was actually a project 10 years in the making, according to Salome.

"We had tried this for years and it never really worked," the 38-year-old Frenchman explained. "It needed our new president [Stephan Winkelmann] to really push for that."

Salome and his team had drawn "thousands and thousands of sketches" over the years with the goal of designing a car that paid tribute to Bugatti's Type 57SC Atlantic, one of the rarest sports cars in the world. Only four were manufactured and Jean Bugatti, the eldest son of company founder Ettore Bugatti, supervised its development and construction in the late 1930s.

Salome, who was born in Paris, has been drawing since he was young, a hobby and passion that his mother, a finance director, strongly encouraged.

"I draw all the time," he said. "Drawing is my life. This is how I communicate with my team."

He designed cars for Kia, Mazda and Renault before landing at Bugatti, where he's been for the last 11 years. Salome said he could never work for another automaker after Bugatti, a marque that many enthusiasts regard as the pinnacle of the automotive industry.

Widely known for its $3 million Chiron hypercar, Bugatti has been slowing increasing production at its atelier and headquarters in Molsheim, France, to reduce the three-year wait time, according to Salome. The company delivered 76 cars, all hand assembled, to customers in 2018, up from 70 in 2017.

The goal is to deliver over 80 Chirons this year in addition to one Divo, its $5.8 million, 1,478-horsepower hypercar. Bugatti has restricted production of the Divo to 40 units and every one was accounted for before the car's debut in August.

"I honestly didn't believe we'd sell 40 cars," Salome said.

He concedes that the pressures to always create exceptional, unrivaled sports cars in a sector where "all the cars seem to look alike" can be daunting. Design is just one step of a very intricate and labyrinthine process.

"The car is the most difficult object to design because of the investment and time required," he said. "There are safety requirements, performance [targets], endless requirements. You have to work hand-in-hand with engineers. I can't do it without them."

He added, "When you work for Bugatti people expect you to deliver more than just doing a job. You have to give love to this brand. You have to over deliver always."

Salome won't limit himself to just cars. His next projects may be designing boats, bikes, watches -- even hotel lobbies.

"If you can do a car you can do any other product," he said.

          Freshman congresswoman Omar responds to President Trump's tweet      Comment   Translate Page      

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) --  Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar vowed her “unwavering love” for America on Twitter Saturday after President Trump and conservatives criticized comments she made about 9/11.

"I did not run for Congress to be silent," she wrote." No one person – no matter how corrupt, inept, or vicious – can threaten my unwavering love for America," she continued, without naming Trump directly. "Thank you for standing with me – against an administration that ran on banning Muslims from this country – to fight for the America we all deserve."

On Friday, the president tweeted a video that used footage of 9/11 with comments Omar made at the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The 43-second video captures Omar saying “some people hit something,” in reference to terrorists who killed thousands when they crashed planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. The video, which features dramatic music and video of the chaos in downtown Manhattan, asks “Some people hit something?”

But it does not show the entirety of Omar’s comments.

“For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” Omar said at CAIR in California last March. “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

Omar went on to say that the 9/11 attacks changed how Muslims are viewed in America, and encouraged Muslims to not tolerate being treated as “second-class” citizens.

But conservatives viewed Omar’s comments as dismissive of 9/11.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as “some people who did something.” Unbelievable,” wrote Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

Democrats quickly came to Omar’s defense, and suggested the president’s tweet took Omar’s words out of context and could potentially endanger Omar. Last week, a man was arrested for threatening to kill Omar because she is Muslim.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tweeted that the president should not use images of 9/11 for political purposes.

"The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence. The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack," Pelosi wrote.

Fellow Democratic freshman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called on Democrats to respond to Trump’s tweet and said that Omar's "life is in danger."

“Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today.@IlhanMN’s life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

Democratic presidential hopefuls also hit back at Trump’s tweet.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg accused the president of inciting hate and violence.

“Someone has already been charged with a serious threat on Congresswoman Omar’s life," Klobuchar wrote. "The video the President chose to send out today will only incite more hate. You can disagree with her words—as I have done before—but this video is wrong. Enough.”

For his part, Buttigieg tweeted that “[t]he threats against the life of @IlhanMN make clear what is at stake if we fail to to do this, and to beat back hate in all all its forms.”

“After 9/11 we all said we were changed," he wrote in one of a series of tweets. "That we were stronger and more united. That’s what ‘never forget’ was about. Now, a president uses that dark day to incite his base against a member of Congress, as if for sport. As if we learned nothing that day about the workings of hate.”

          The long way home again: Cory Booker returns to Newark for his 2020 campaign      Comment   Translate Page      

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

(NEWARK, N.J.) -- Sen. Cory Booker, the high-profile Democrat who entered the 2020 race after a near-decade-long journey to become the second African-American president, returned to his native Newark, New Jersey for his first big campaign rally on Saturday.

In a speech to those gathered in the city where he once served as mayor, Booker urged that the nation "can't wait for change."

"There are so many places like that across America. Not just cities like this one – farm communities and factory towns that, like us here in Newark, have been given up on and talked down to… counted out and underestimated," he told the crowd. "We can’t wait when powerful forces are turning their prejudice into policy and rolling back the rights that generations of Americans fought for and heroes died for. We can’t wait when this administration is throwing children fleeing violence into cages, banning Muslims from entering the nation founded on religious liberty, and preventing brave transgender Americans from serving the country they love."

"And we can’t wait because many of our most serious challenges as a nation were with us long before Donald Trump entered the White House," he added.

The 49-year-old’s kickoff event, which he called, “a moment that we’ve been building for since the start” in an email to supporters, is his first official rally as a presidential contender. The event launches Booker’s two-week “Justice for All” tour with the goal of building “a more just” country.

During the campaign tour, Booker is expected to highlight the defining challenges confronting the country and underscore the urgency needed to achieve "real and inclusive justice," his campaign said in an email on Friday. He is also primed to address economic and environmental injustice, as well as injustice across voting rights, reproductive rights, education and gun violence.

"I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame," the New Jersey senator said in his official campaign announcement to supporters in February.

In Newark, Booker spoke before an audience of many of his most passionate supporters -- people like Keri Szewczyk, who works as an event planner for Prudential Financial in Newark and showed up early for Saturday's Booker rally. .

“I’m voting for Cory -- I know that for sure,” Szewczyk, 22, told ABC News. “It’s such a beautiful city and ultimately he’s made it that way.”

“I think the fact that he’s not afraid to stand up to people, and his Senate discussions, and being just, like, into politics in general -- he’s not afraid to stand up with what’s right, even if it’s unpopular,” she continued. “And I feel like we lose that in politics nowadays. So I think that we need somebody like him.”

Szewczyk said she was drawn to Booker by his positions on issues like immigration, but was initially impressed with his stance and marijuana decriminalization.

“The first one was the decriminalization if marijuana that I had a lot of respect for because it’s not enough to just legalize it, it needs to be decriminalized.”

She said she’s backing Booker not only for where he stands on key issues, but because “he’s home for me. He is the New Jersey Senator.”

The former Newark mayor’s long-standing commitment to fighting for criminal justice traces back to his formative years in the inner-city. On the campaign trail, he often invokes a common story about growing up as a young African-American in a predominantly white neighborhood. His message of unity derives from the city blocks of Newark -- where he says young men are shot, hard-working Americans remain on food stamps and opportunity is often skewed towards the rich and powerful.

"I do live with a sense of urgency. I had a young man shot with an assault rifle on my block last year,” he said in a March interview with ABC News’ senior Washington reporter Devin Dwyer. “I go to my bodega around the corner from me and see people who work full-time jobs but still use food stamps. Every single day I live with that sense of urgency that we’ve got to solve these problems, and the knowledge that we can’t solve them divided."

Booker ascended to the national political stage after over seven years as mayor of his hometown. He first vaulted into the national spotlight for his youth and his emphasis on combating crime in the poverty-plagued city. His unconventional hands-on approach included frequent ride-alongs with the city's law enforcement and a high-profile education partnership with Facebook that involved Mark Zuckerberg investing $100 million into the city’s public school system.

“I’m the only one in this race who had to run and manage thousands of employees, a city in the middle of a recession, which was a depression for inner cities,” Booker told ABC News in that March interview. “We managed through crisis and we achieved things people said we couldn’t do. I’ve stayed put in the neighborhood where I first got my start and will never forget the people that believed in me and gave me my first chance.”

In crafting his narrative, Booker has pointed to his successes in transforming downtown Newark, revamping the city's recreational centers and starting a prisoner re-entry program, according to Andra Gillespie, a political scientist at Emory University and author of the 2012 book, "The New Black Politician: Cory Booker, Newark and Post-Racial America."

But some of his critics argue that he did not always meet expectations or the hype around his mayoral tenure with some in the city's inner core complaining that they were being left behind in the wave of gentrification and growth. There was also criticism that his burgeoning national profile meant that he spent less time in the city that buttressed his career.

The Newark Star-Ledger found that from Jan. 1, 2011 to July 2012, Booker spent 119 days out of the city -- a span of time that included some speaking engagements, late-night television appearances, vacations and holidays.

"I think there is a double-edged sword of the celebrity [of Booker]," Gillespie told ABC News. "The celebrity was able to attract a lot of attention. ... People focused on the hype. In terms of making a credible case of one, he has executive experience and two, the issues that he's been talking about are issues he's actually been thinking about for a long period of time, I think there's a lot in Booker's record that speaks to his investment and engagement with the issues he wants to champion as a presidential candidate."

When asked which mayors he parallels, Gillespie put him in the same category as former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, and former Washington, D.C., Mayor Adrian Fenty, who were elected around the same time in cities also long run by African American mayors. She noted that among that cohort, Booker has seen the most success as a politician.

When Booker arrived on Capitol Hill after winning a special election in 2013, and re-election in 2014, his support for crucial reforms over the last few years led to his rise to national prominence, including for the recent landmark First Step Act, a bipartisan and significant, generational change to prison sentencing laws.

Criminal justice reform has been a hallmark of Booker’s public sector career. He was an original co-sponsor of the criminal justice reform bill.

Earlier this month, he said he aims to "get back to a country being about substance and not just sentiment."

"We are dealing with systematic injustice in this country," he said at the National Action Network Conference in New York. “What will happen to the dream of America on our watch? The dream of slaves for freedom? The dreams of suffragettes … what will become the dream of our nation?”

But Booker has also signaled his openness to other big structural reforms that are dominating the 2020 debate such as changing traditional Senate rules on the filibuster and reparations for African-Americans.

In late March, New Jersey’s junior senator said to the hosts of the “Pod Save America” podcast, “When you talk about changing the filibuster rule I understand that we are heading, right now, we are heading that way, to people on both sides. ... I’m going to tell you that for me that door is not closed.”

Earlier this week, he introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate to form a commission to study reparations. His bill is a companion to H.R. 40, re-introduced this year by Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, of Texas, and which could be a means to study the impact of slavery in a way that is "realistically forceful and effective to help African Americans who never had the issue of wealth that was inherited."

"Since slavery in this country, we have had overt policies fueled by white supremacy and racism that have oppressed African Americans economically for generations," he said. "[The bill] will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed."

Before then-Sen. Barack Obama captured the White House in the 2008 election, some in the Garden State were familiar with Booker's ambitious work and him openly musing about becoming the country's first black president.

The former Newark city council member was an early supporter of Obama’s presidential candidacy and shares his background in community organizing. He’s often drawn comparisons to the former president for his tenor on the trail and his message of optimism and love. Like many of the 2020 hopefuls, Booker hopes to garner the support of the Obama coalition -- which requires a swath of southern black voters to win the Democratic nomination.

The co-chairman of Obama’s 2008 campaign in New Hampshire, James Demers, likened Booker to the former Illinois senator, calling him “Obama 2.0” for energetic ability to connect with voters, the Los Angeles Times reported.

While Booker first won his mayoral election unexpectedly, after unseating the longest-serving mayor in the city's history, Sharpe James, his home state popularity is as strong as ever. Since announcing his bid for the White House, Booker is the only candidate in the deep field to secure the endorsement of every Democrat in his home state.

He earned the endorsements of more than 50 New Jersey Democrats, which includes New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, his colleague, Sen. Bob Menendez, every Democratic member of the House, the top leaders of both state legislative chambers, all four Democratic county executives, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka, every member of the Newark City Council and all 21 county Democratic party chairs.

          Capitol custodial staff report harassment from lawmakers in oversight investigation      Comment   Translate Page      

iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The U.S. Capitol’s overnight custodial staff allege they were sexually harassed, exposed to pornography in lawmakers’ offices and overheard conversations in which others were being harassed, according to a watchdog investigation into 10 years of sexual harassment reports in the Architect of the Capitol, the office responsible for maintenance and operations on Capitol Hill.

In a report submitted to Congress by the Office of the Inspector General, Architect of the Capitol staff said they often do not speak up about inappropriate behavior for fear of retaliation. One staffer reported no one had an answer for them when they asked during sexual harassment prevention training, "what happens if the harasser is a member of Congress?"

The report doesn't specify how many complaints about lawmakers were filed.

Congress asked the inspector general in October to look into years-worth of sexual harassment reports within the Architect of the Capitol, and whether that office was handling the cases properly.

The inspector general found there were 57 reports of sexual harassment over a decade. The report notes this number of reports is low for a workforce the size of the Architect of the Capitol , although it also acknowledges fear of retaliation could lead employees to choose not to report their experiences.

The report also found there is a "widespread perception that sexual harassment is a pervasive problem” within the Architect of the Capitol and the investigators attribute that perception to "lingering cultural bias."

The report highlighted the Architect of the Capitol for appearing “to be energetic in its efforts to improve the agency culture and create an environment of civility" and that "the results of our inquiry were primarily positive, with the majority of identified gaps already receiving the attention” of department officials.

Still, problems remain.

Employees said they don't trust the process to report harassment, and the avenues to report are overly complicated.

One staffer said “The whole system is [designed] to protect the Architect of the Capitol, EEO, Office of Compliance or any other assistance under this Agency."

          President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un willing to meet for third summit      Comment   Translate Page      

ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday that he is open to a third summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, citing their “excellent” personal relationship and understanding of “where we each stand.”

“I agree with Kim Jong Un of North Korea that our personal relationship remains very good, perhaps the term excellent would be even more accurate, and that a third Summit would be good in that we fully understand where we each stand,” Trump tweeted before heading to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, for the day.

“North Korea has tremendous potential for… extraordinary growth, economic success and riches under the leadership of Chairman Kim,” Trump added. "I look forward to the day, which could be soon, when Nuclear Weapons and Sanctions can be removed, and then watching North Korea become one of the most successful nations of the World!”

In a speech reported by North Korea’s state-run media, the Korean Central News Agency, Kim announced that he is willing to meet with Trump for a third summit and praised the personal relationship he has developed with Trump.

“As President Trump keeps saying, the personal ties between me and him are not hostile like the relations between the two countries and we still maintain good relations, as to be able to exchange letters asking about health anytime if we want,” Kim said.

But he added that before any meeting, the United States must change its policies toward North Korea and lift sanctions by the end of the year.

But he added that before any meeting, the United States must change its policies toward North Korea and lift sanctions by the end of the year.

 “We will wait for a bold decision from the U.S. with patience till the end of this year but I think it will definitely be difficult to get such a good opportunity as the previous summit,” Kim said.

Trump and Kim first met in June 2018 in Singapore, and their negotiations and correspondence via letters continued until their second summt in Hanoi, Vietnam, in February. But the talks broke down and the summit was unexpectedly cut short because North Korea wanted the United States to lift all sanctions, according to Trump. He has not said whether or not he has remained in contact with Kim since Hanoi.

At the White House on Friday, Trump met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in to discuss a path forward with North Korea and the potential for a smaller nuclear disarmament deal.

“There are various smaller deals that could happen,” Trump said “You could work out step-by-step pieces, but at this moment we’re talking about the big deal. The big deal is we have to get rid of nuclear weapons.”

          Former Trump adviser Roger Stone seeks dismissal of Mueller charges, access to report      Comment   Translate Page      

ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- Defense attorneys for Roger Stone, the veteran GOP operative and former adviser to President Donald Trump, filed court documents late Friday seeking to dismiss charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller and request access to his 400-page report in its entirety.

In his argument for charges to be dropped, Stone cited several consitutional clauses that “invalidate” the special counsel’s appointment and authority to prosecute.

“The appointment was illegal, the resulting office has been a nullity from inception, and all actions taken by this illegally appointed officer should be declared null and void,” Stone’s legal team wrote. “The indictment of Roger Stone should be dismissed with prejudice.”

Several federal courts have dismissed similar challenges to the special counsel’s authority on the basis that the investigative office was improperly appointed, including an appeals case brought by a former aide to Stone, Andrew Miller.

Stone’s legal team also sought access to the much-anticipated Mueller report in its entirety, according to the court documents, which Attorney General William Barr is expected to make public in a redacted form in the coming days.

“The Special Counsel Report may be of political interest to many. It may be of commercial interest to others. It may be of public interest to some. But for Roger Stone,” his lawyer’s wrote, “the Special Counsel’s Report is a matter of protecting his liberty. Only by full disclosure to him, can he determine whether the Report contains material which could be critical to his defense.”

The special counsel’s office indicted Stone in January on five counts of lying to Congress, as well as witness tampering and obstruction of justice as part of its probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddlers in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

Stone has pleaded not guilty to all seven counts.

Reached by ABC News for comment, Stone attorney Grant Smith said, "The filing speaks for itself."

Stone has repeatedly tested the boundaries of a gag order imposed by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, the federal judge overseeing his case in Washington, D.C.

The judge silenced attorneys and parties involved in the case in February, but largely left Stone free to discuss the investigation. Later that month, Jackson reprimanded Stone after he posted an inflammatory image targeting the judge on social media and expanded her gag order to include Stone.

Jackson later warned the longtime political provocateur of the “costs and consequences” of speaking publicly about the case, the court or Mueller. Since then, the famously outspoken Stone has kept a lower profile.

In March, Judge Jackson set a trial date for Stone on November 5.

          Pentagon awaiting new request from DHS that could send more troops to border      Comment   Translate Page      

US Army(WASHINGTON) -- After President Donald Trump told White House reporters on Friday that "we're gonna put more troops on the border," the Pentagon was awaiting a new request over the weekend from the Department of Homeland Security for more support along the Southwest border said the Pentagon's top official.

Previous discussions about what further role the U.S. military may play along the border with Mexico, according to one U.S. official who spoke to ABC News, included the prospect that the military could be used to build and manage tent cities to house migrants at two locations along the southwest border.

There are currently 3,900 active duty forces and 2,100 National Guardsmen serving on the southern border in separate missions supporting Customs and Border Protection.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan had earlier told reporters at the Pentagon that he expected an increase in U.S. military support to the Pentagon.

"It shouldn't come as a surprise that we would provide more support to the border," Shanahan told reporters.

"Our support is very elastic and given the deterioration there at the border you would expect that we would provide more support," he said.

However, Shanahan also said that the Pentagon had not received a formal Request for Assistance" (RFA) from the Department of Homeland Security.

" But we've been having a number of conversations with DHS," said Shanahan who added that this weekend a Pentagon planning team will follow up on what more support the Pentagon can provide along the border.

"Where are we on barrier construction? Where do we stand on the current support? and then on the areas we anticipate, What type of preliminary planning should we be doing prior to receiving that request for assistance," said Shanahan.

Like the previous RFA’s from DHS, the new one will list the additional capabilities that the agency needs along the border. Those capabilities will likely require more troops, but the exact number of troops will depend on how the Pentagon matches up what it can provide to meet the request from DHS.

A U.S. official said the Pentagon's discussions with DHS have included discussion of whether the U.S. military could be used to build and manage tent cities for migrants at two locations along the southern border

Another official said once the Pentagon receives the request from DHS, it will have to be reviewed to ensure that the requested capabilities fall under the legal restrictions for U.S. military troops operating domestically under the Posse Comitatus Act.

That would include whether the U.S. troops could interact with migrants should there be a request for a tent city to house detained migrants.

A Pentagon spokesman acknowledged that in the past the U.S. military has provided facilities to house migrants, but has not been involved in detention operations. . "We’ve never engaged in that and I don’t know if we have any plans to do anything like that,” said Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers.

          White House cheers decision by international court to reject Afghanistan war crimes investigation      Comment   Translate Page      

Tom Brenner/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) --  President Donald Trump on Friday celebrated a decision by the International Criminal Court to reject a request by the court’s prosecutor to investigate alleged war crimes committed in Afghanistan including the role of U.S. forces.

“This is a major international victory, not only for these patriots, but for the rule of law,” the president said in a statement. “We welcome this decision and reiterate our position that the United States holds American citizens to the highest legal and ethical standards. ... Any attempt to target American, Israeli, or allied personnel for prosecution will be met with a swift and vigorous response.”

National Security Adviser John Bolton, who has long been a critic of the ICC and declared in September “the ICC is already dead” as far as the United States is concerned, called Friday’s development a “vindication” of the Trump administration’s strong opposition to the international court.

“This is a vindication of the president’s support for American sovereignty, and a rejection of the idea that there can be accountability for American citizens by any authority other than American constitutional institutions,” Bolton said in a briefing with reporters Friday afternoon.

Human Rights Watch on Friday called the ICC’s decision a “devastating blow” to the victims of human rights violations.

In issuing its ruling not to proceed with the investigation, ICC judges said the investigation was unlikely to further the pursuit of justice because neither Afghanistan, nor the U.S., were expected to cooperate.

The court decision also comes a month after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the US would put visa restrictions of any ICC personnel seeking to investigate allegations of war crimes involving US citizens. Last week, it was confirmed that ICC prosecutor’s visa had been officially revoked, barring travel to the US with the exception of official business at the United States. Bolton said Friday those visa restrictions would remain in effect.

Asked if he thinks the ICC’s decision was related to the United States' actions on visas, Bolton at first said he “can’t speak to the timing.”

“Why it happened today as opposed to some other day I think it’s just the final l crash of an inadequate process,” Bolton continued, suggesting the decision had more to do with the weaknesses in the case to investigate than the U.S. actions.

While human rights advocates have accused the administration of trying to bully, and even interfere in the court’s workings, Bolton defended the administration’s actions.

“I don’t think it’s bullying to stand up to protect innocent American service members, members of the intelligence community, who are unjustly accused. When Americans violate their training and doctrine, whether they’re in the military or intelligence community, as a democratic constitutional society we are capable of holding our own citizens accountable,” Bolton said.

In its decision, the judges cited the prosecutor's request claiming "there is a reasonable basis to believe that, since 2003, members of the US armed forces and the CIA have committed the war crimes of torture and cruel treatment, outrages upon personal dignity, and rape and other forms of sexual violence pursuant to a policy approved by the US authorities."

“The decision by the International Criminal Court's judges to reject an investigation in Afghanistan is a devastating blow for victims who have suffered grave crimes without redress,” Param-Preet Singh, associate international justice director at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement. “This sends a dangerous message to perpetrators that they can put themselves beyond the reach of the law just by being uncooperative.”

Bolton made clear that the administration’s opposition to the court is unequivocal and based on a belief that it inherently conflicts with the U.S. Constitution.

Asked if the thought the ICC should have authority to prosecute Sudan’s Omar al Bash -- who has been indicated by the court -- for genocide, Bolton replied plainly: “It’s the position of the United States that the court is illegitimate.”

          7 crimes that shook the world of retail      Comment   Translate Page      

Target

  • Retail crime is ubiquitous.
  • But some cases prove to be more eye-catching than others.
  • From an airport iPad heist to a one-woman jewelry thief, here are some standout cases of retail crime.

Retail crime is on the rise.

In 2018, the National Retail Federation estimated that losses from organized retail crime were at "an all time high." The organization estimated that this form of crime costs the industry $777,877 per $1 billion in sales.

But some cases prove to be a bit more shocking than others.

Whether they involved sensational circumstances or a massive haul of millions of dollars, here are seven retail crimes that shook up the whole industry:

A couple was accused of robbing Safeway of $5 million.

ABC reported that Richard Remington and Angela Evans were accused of nicking $5 million worth of goods from different Oregon Safeway stores in 2011. Together, the couple was reportedly seen stealing on camera 178 times.

Cops arrested the pair after a store loss-prevention officer placed a tracking device on their car, according to the Oregonian.



A Stop & Shop owner was charged with using his store to launder millions.

Abduhl Sulaiman owned a Stop & Shop in Lexington, Kentucky, but in 2008 he was arrested on charges that he contributed to an illegal retail scheme.

Authorities concluded that Sulaiman also laundered money for a retail theft ring posing as a Kentucky business called Alpha Trading, according to the Lexington Herald Leader.

According to Retail Info Systems, Sulaiman laundered $60 million through his store.



Robbers made off with thousands of tablets at JFK.

Thieves reportedly made off with thousands of iPads using an airport forklift at John F. Kennedy Airport on November 12, 2012.

And it could have been an inside job. The New York Post reported that the FBI arrested a JFK employee after they learned he had allegedly made "suspicious inquiries to coworkers about the gadget shipment."

Complex reported that the heist scored robbers $1.9 million worth of iPad Minis.

          8 US servicemen killed during World War II honored in Italy on 75th anniversary      Comment   Translate Page      

Phoebe Natanson/ABC News(ROME) --  Seventy-five years after eight U.S. servicemen were summarily shot at a hermitage on the top of a mount overlooking the Italian village of Montebuono during World War II, local Italian and foreign residents came together to honor them.

The village organized more than 20 four-wheel drive vehicles to take roughly 80 participants, including local dignitaries and NATO representatives from the U.S., U.K. and Canada, to the commemorative ceremony on Saturday. The event included the town band playing the American and Italian national anthems, the unveiling of a new plaque and the laying of wreaths.

The eight servicemen had lived on the run for more than two months after escaping from an unmarked German prisoner-of-war train, which was travelling up through Italy to Germany. It had been repeatedly struck by U.S. B-52s on January 28, 1944, as it was crossing the Allerona Bridge, north of Orvieto in central Italy.

Little was known about the tragedy until documents were uncovered and a monument was erected near the rebuilt bridge in 2012.

Over 1,000 Allied American, Britons, South African and other POWs were on the train locked in about 50 cars being escorted by the retreating Germans. Ten cars were believed to have been destroyed.

It is still not known exactly how many of the POWs died but estimates range from 200 to 600.

Local people who came to help with the wounded described seeing a scene of chaos and horror and a "mountain of corpses," according to The Guardian. Records of great heroism have emerged as POWs helped the wounded or freed others still locked in the rail cars.

Approximately 200 people were wounded and were taken to nearby hospitals. A large number escaped across the hills, some heading south to try to reach the Allied lines, while others hid out waiting for the friendly troops to reach them on their northward thrust.

Some of the escaped POWs were recaptured and put back on trains to Germany and others caught escaping were shot. Historian Jane Kinrade Dethick, who has meticulously researched POWs in Italy, told ABC News that approximately 500 who weren’t wounded or killed escaped.

"Some were captured that day, some were captured after a week, some were captured after three months and some were never captured," she said.

Not much is known about the eight remembered on Saturday -- about how they were hidden at the hermitage and what their plan was to survive.

"All we know is that they were woken up one morning and killed, shot dead by the German military police who had the task of rounding up deserters from the Italian army, partisans and escaped prisoners of war," Kinrade Dethick said. "Why they didn’t arrest them and take them to their command, which is what normally happened, we do not know because there was nobody else there to tell us.

"They didn’t leave us any written records," she added.

Kinrade Dethick said three weeks earlier the group met an American airman whose plane had been shot down. He, too, was on the run, she said.

"They gave him their names and addresses and military numbers and when he joined up with Allied troops he told them about the eight," she added.

Dethick said there are two possibilities: that someone told the Germans about the Americans hiding on the hill, or that the servicemen fell into a net, since German police would scour the area to locate enemies shooting at them.

‘’They were there to capture the POW who may have joined the partisans or the partisans who they called ‘bandits,'" she said. "Basically, they were after anyone who posed a threat to their military."

The organization run by the Vatican may have known the servicemen, and someone in town, perhaps the priest, gave them money to buy food, Dethick believes.

The town continues to remember the soldiers every year and makes an annual pilgrimage to the hermitage. People in the town remembered their parents giving them bread and food and recounted hearing repeated shots from up on the hill.

Nello Lucchetti, an 88-year old local, remembers when he was just 13, climbing up to the hermitage after they were shot and seeing the eight bodies lying in a line on the ground.

Harry Schindler, a 97-year-old UK veteran who landed at Anzio in 1944 and still lives in Italy, came to the ceremony to pay his respects.

"My war is not over,’’ he told ABC News as his book, which recounts life in Italy during World War II, is entitled.

"I am still getting letters from grandchildren of people who fought in the war wanting to know more," he said.

Speaking to the townsfolk after the ceremony, Schindler recounted the immense kindness of the Italians who helped the Allied soldiers.

"The war would have been longer, more horrible, without that partisan help that liberated Italy," he said. "If we really want to remember these eight soldiers, we must explain what war was, not just how horrible war was – the deaths – but about the loss of freedom, how one couldn’t talk freely then and how we must work for peace and freedom.

"We have to make sure that our children will not have to do what we had to do, when the 1st World War ended," he warned. "The whole world said, 'Never again,' but in only 20 years, they were involved in another war."

He added that everyone should be indebted to the eight servicemen and the "thousands of young men who died when they came to Italy to remove a regime."

"We won, and so democracy and freedom returned to Italy," he added. "And when we came to Italy, the Italians, good people, helped us."

          Cory Booker Admits Releasing Migrants In Sanctuary Cities Would "Make Us Less Safe"      Comment   Translate Page      

Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker says that Americans would be "less safe" if illegal immigrants were released from locked detention centers into migrant-friendly American cities - a plan which President Trump has threatened to explore. 

When asked by Face the Nation's Margaret Brennan whether Trump's threat was an empty one, or if he was simply trying to create friction, Booker replied: "You say 'friction' -- I say he's trying to pit Americans against each other and make us less safe.

Following reports that the White House had discussed releasing a flood if migrants into Democratic-controlled, undocumented-friendly sanctuary cities, President Trump on Friday said that he was "giving strong considerations" to the idea. 

Earlier Friday, the Washington Post and ABC News reported that the Trump administration had twiced pushed for transferring migrants to sanctuary cities, citing anonymous senior government officials familiar with the matter. 

In response to taking detained migrants and placing them in the care of cities which have pledged to protect them, Democrats lashed out. 

"The extent of this Administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated," said Nancy Pelosi's spokeswoman Ashley Etienne in a Friday statement. "Using human beings—including little children—as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal."

Noting safety concerns, Pelosi's aide added: "The American people have resoundingly rejected this Administration’s toxic anti-immigrant policies, and Democrats will continue to advance immigration policies that keep us safe and honor our values."

On Saturday night, President Trump said over Twitter that "The USA has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities," and demanded that "they be taken care of at the highest level, especially by the State of California, which is well known or its poor management & high taxes!"

On Sunday Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) - chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said that he doesn't "see a legal way" to release undocumented immigrants into sanctuary cities. 

"More importantly, this is again his manufactured chaos he's created over the last two years on the border," said Thompson. "Before Donald Trump took office, we had a situation that was manageable. We had spikes, but it also went down, but what we have now is a constant pushing of the system so that it doesn't work.

House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS)

Thompson added that transferring the migrants to sanctuary cities was "not about keeping the country safe, but about partisan politics and wantonly inflicting cruelty." 

Perhaps Thompson could explain how taking migrants out of locked facilities and placing them in the care of sanctuary cities constitutes cruelty?

California Governor Gavin Newsom called the idea "asinine" - adding that it is "unserious," "illegal," and "sophomoric." 

"It really is the sophistry of adolescence. It's not serious. It lacks any rationale. It's insulting to the American people and to the intelligence of the American people. It's un-American. It's illegal. It's immoral. It's rather pathetic. I don't know what more I can say," said Newsom.
