Donald Trump is the Kanye West of White People



Someone just called me pugilistic.  Not sure what that means but it just makes me want to punch him.


Poor Democrats.  The Republican candidates are saying such bad things about each other it will be hard for the Democrat nominee to come up with any new criticisms....they can just quote the 2nd place Republican.

CYBERSECURITY

Man gets 46 months for email scam that told lawyer to send client's $250K to 3rd party


Share14
An Ohio man was sentenced this month to 46 months in federal prison for sending a spoofed email that tricked an upstate New York real estate attorney into sending $250,000 from a client’s real estate transaction to a third party.
Paul Lacey, 56, was also ordered to pay $337,002.64 in restitution in the Rochester, New York, case, according to the Livingston County News and the Rochester Business Journal.
An affidavit says Lacey sent an email last year to an unidentified Dansville, New York, attorney that seemed to come from a client of the lawyer. It instructed the attorney to transfer the client’s $250,000 from a New York bank to a Georgia account set up by Lacey in the name of a fake company.
After learning that the email wasn’t from the client, the lawyer contacted the FBI, which identified Lacey as a suspect from bank surveillance footage. He pleaded guilty in October to a single count of engaging in financial transactions involving illegally obtained funds.
It isn’t clear from news coverage whether any of the $250,000 has been returned, or how the court came up with the restitution figure.
An earlier WFMJ story says the feds accused Lacey of withdrawing $95,000 of the transferred money from an Atlanta account.

The Happiest Place On Earth: Disney Outsources More Jobs To Foreign Workers While Asking Existing Workers To Donate Part Of Their Wages To Support Lobbyists

by jonathanturley
disney worker breaks downThere was a gut-wrenching moment in the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration this week as Leo Perrero, former Disney IT worker, broke down in tears as he recounted how the company fired him and his colleagues despite record profits so that the company could give their jobs to cheaper foreign workers. The video is below. The company then ordered them to train their replacements or lose their severance pay. At the same time, Disney CEO Bob Iger sent a letter to the remaining company’s employees, asking for them to donate money to support the company's lobbyists in Disney's political action committee, DisneyPAC. Disney has been at the forefront in securing draconian copyright laws and protections from Congress.

Court Tosses Out Indictment of Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry

by jonathanturley
perry2I have long been critical of the indictment of former Texas Governor Rick Perry. Two years ago, Perry was indicted by a grand jury in Austin on charges of abuse of power. The charges stem from Perry carrying out a threat to veto funding the budget for the Travis County Public Integrity Unit, which handles political corruption investigations. The charges have now been dismissed but I remain concerned that such charges were brought in the first place.
2 sides to the story. here is a different take

Appeals court judge is detained, but makes flight, after loaded gun found at airport in his luggage


Share1
A Michigan Appeals Court judge is the subject of a criminal investigation after a loaded gun was reportedly found in his carry-on luggage on Sunday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
Authorities said Judge Henry William Saad, 68, who has a permit to carry a firearm, was briefly detained after federal Transportation Security Administration personnel spotted a Smith and Wesson .357 revolver in his luggage around 8:30 a.m. as it was going through an X-ray machine, according to the Detroit Free Press and WJBK.
However, the judge made his flight to Fort Myers, Florida, after police processed him at the scene for the possible misdemeanor ordinance violation, according to WDIV. The Wayne County prosecutor’s office will determine whether to pursue the case after an investigation is completed.
Ordinarily, those found with firearms are processed at a police station, an airport spokesman told WDIV, but it is up to the officer’s discretion.
A spokesman for the state court administrative office told the Free Press that Saad’s status on the appeals court is unchanged following the incident.
