[WND] Could Howard Rubin end up tainting George Soros like Jeffrey Epstein tainted so many other billionaires?
Rubin is a top money manager who was a "right-hand man" for the leftist billionaire, according to the New York Post. He worked at the Soros Fund from 2008 to 2015, having come out of retirement to take the job, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
Now, he's the subject of a court case -- accused by multiple women of engaging in sadistic sex-for-hire practices that went way beyond what they had consented to.
And while he was known to be volatile professionally, it's not the kind of headline Rubin's career would suggest.
During 30 years on Wall Street, Rubin established a solid record working at other high-end investment firms. He was immortalized in "Liar's Poker," the debut book by Michael Lewis of "Moneyball" and "The Big Short" fame. In it, Rubin described how "the trading floor at Salomon Brothers felt like a Las Vegas casino. You made your bets, handled risk, in the midst of a thousand distractions."
Even then, some viewed him as an out-of-control Wall Street type.
[ABC] An Illinois woman is facing federal charges for allegedly disturbing wildlife in Yellowstone National Park after a video surfaced of her attempting to get an up-close cellphone photo of a momma grizzly bear and her three cubs.
Bob Murray, the U.S. attorney for the district of Wyoming, announced on Monday that charges have been filed against 25-year-old Samantha R. Dehring of Carol Stream, Illinois.
Dehring is ordered to appear before a magistrate judge in Mammoth Hot Spring, Wyoming, on Aug. 26 to answer to charges of willfully remaining, approaching and photographing wildlife within 100 yards. She is also charged with one count of feeding, touching, teasing, frightening or intentionally disturbing wildlife.
attempting to get an up-close cellphone photo of a momma grizzly bear and her three cubs.
Momma & cubs, this is impressively stupid. In fact, it is so stupid I wouldn't bother to prosecute her because she will eventually wander into traffic, fall off a cliff, or be literally eaten by bears.
We'll have you know, Miss Dehring-er
that this family of bears are VIPs.
They're respectable fauna now,
and not like Nancy's invitees.
This fine lady's husband f'rinstance
knew the bishop of Rome very well,
and frequently helped his eminence
get into his tighty whities.
While I understand the 100% stupidity of the Self-Picture with a wild Griz and yes she have had DARWIN teaching moment for it.
If she lives in Illinois then transfer the case to that Illinois district, since she wasn't arrested in Yellowstone district.
Or have that U.S. attorney / Marshall's office in Wyoming pay for her return ROUND TRIP Airfare and her stay in 3/5 star Hotel room, NOT a travel inn room for the duration of the court hearing and trial.
NOTE: The quoted 100 Yard rule is pure BS and suspect the US Attorney wants some MEDIA exposure maybe for Career building?
Hell here in Cherokee Nation Park NC/TN.
There are ELK, black bears, wolves and deer walking within a few FEET of tourists, not Yards.
I'll bet it is the same in Yellowstone.
Where Bears have learned how to pose and even open car doors to beg for handouts.
Government rationing of goods and essential services will soon become vital. We are essentially at war with China the pandemic. Moving to Florida should no longer be an option. You must do your part. Get the JAB. Mask up and shut up.
Having to politely wait-on 100 to 300+ people crammed in a poorly ventilated cabin, during a Pandemic for hours. Then deal with the Type "A's" acting like its a turf war demand better. Then add NOT knowing what the "Latest" official fact or fiction regarding anything Covid19/21D? related is.
I'll bet many, that have lived and survived thru the various US Gasoline, natural Gas, Medical Doctor, medicine, Ammo and food shortages over the last 40+ years. Are suitably stocked for the next 18 to 24 months.
Because likely you grew up learning to adapt and wasn't fed hand-n-foot and pampered. eg. If you were military brat you lived on Frozen Milk and bread thawed as needed.
What I see as the future sufferers are the ones that did not look 2 years down the road when the C-19 started.
Those that didn't bother to think about the plants closed or shutdown due to lack of workers to produce basic items like FOOD not masks and hand cleaners. eg. Bacon
So likely they did not imagine stockpiles/Inventories would be seriously depleted or even sold to the highest bidder eg. China and USA Hogs in 2020-2021.
So they did not see the likely upcoming 2021-2020+ spot Shortages.
BTW: Next time anyone is in the Super Market, start looking at the BEST BY DATES. Too many canned items are now running barely at 1 year. Where before we were seeing canned items running 18 to 24+ months.
Also note: the growing empty shelves ... yes even in Wally World food isles. eg... Rice shelves are partially stocked at best and usually sold out of brands like "Water-Maid" or 25% to 30% higher prices.
[KENS5] "We have an urgent situation in the Coastal Bend.... All area hospitals are on divert, which means they cannot accept patients. This includes Corpus Christi, Victoria, Kingsville, Beeville, and San Antonio.
There are beds available but no nursing staff for them."

Well forcing employee's to be vaxed could only exacerbate the problems. Many quit. Many refuse the edicts.Now nurses I am told are striking about this. The constant problems must go on. Just do as the Democrats do and throw money at the problem. Well, as we all know that has never worked but does for elections. This is an orchestrated fantasy world we now live in. The wizard of oz has bungled things badly. So you think it can't get worse? you wanna bet?.
#2 Wow 5-7 liters. Gas exchange must be extremely poor. I have seen 10 on face mask and additional 7 liters nasal canula combined. Not good at all. Then because of the Vax so common. Blood clotting threw out the body, everywhere I suspect.
[Washington Examiner] U.S. intelligence officials face bipartisan congressional pressure to explain their use of surveillance powers, following a rebuke from a federal judge and Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s high-profile dispute with the National Security Agency.
"Our institutions are only as good as the American public’s confidence in them," Florida Sen. Marco Rubio wrote a top intelligence official, requesting an investigation of Carlson’s allegation the NSA violated his privacy. "The NSA publicly responded to Mr. Carlson’s allegations with a statement on Twitter that frankly only created more questions."
Rubio, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, did not dispute the NSA’s denial of wrongdoing in Carlson’s case. Yet, Rubio’s request for "a formal inquiry" into Carlson’s complaint coincided with a sharper rebuke of the FBI, which has drawn bipartisan ire due to a federal judge’s revelation of "pervasive" misuse of data collected by the NSA.
"We each share an obligation to protect Americans’ civil liberties," Indiana Republican Rep. Victoria Spartz and California Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren wrote in a Tuesday letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray. "However, the FBI has repeatedly violated the civil liberties of Americans through widespread misuse of Section 702 data."
According to him, the heat wave will affect many regions in the European part of Russia, but in some continental regions the average temperature will reach 43C (109.4 F).
"It is very hot on the lower Volga, in the Astrakhan region. Up to 43C in the Volgograd region, in the Rostov region also up to 43C, as well as in the south of Stavropol," said the head of the Hydrometeorological Center.
The same abnormal increase in temperature, according to Wilfand, will occur in cities on the Black Sea coast.
"Vacationers go for warmth, but it's actually hot there. Even on the Black Sea coast up to 35 ºC and in the Sochi area too. In Simferopol 30-37C, in Sevastopol 30-35C," he noted.
Multiple gunshots heard in Nasby, Kristianstad, as police rushed to scene
Three people have been hospitalised in a serious condition with gunshot wounds: two men in their twenties and thirties, and a woman in her sixties
Police said three males had been arrested in connection with Tuesday's incident
Sweden's Expressen newspaper reported that those detained were teenagers
Nasby has been classified by police as a vulnerable area after recent riots and murders, high unemployment and low education
Sweden is the only European country where fatal shootings have risen significantly since 2000, primarily because of the violent activities of organised criminal gangs
In conclusion, better than fifty-fifty odds that the gunmen were Muslim gangbangers of one or another ethnicity, and slightly lower odds they were non-Muslim Eastern European gangbangers. But unless one knows who lives in that community, that information will likely never be reported.
[IndianExpress] Claiming that timely introduction of Ivermectin since the first wave has helped the state maintain a relatively low positivity rate despite in its high population density.
A year after the country’s first Covid-19 cluster, with 5 cases, was reported in Agra district, the Uttar Pradesh government has claimed that it was the first state to have introduced a large-scale "prophylactic and therapeutic" use of Ivermectin and added that the drug helped the state to maintain a lower fatality and positivity rate as compared to other states.
Citing the results from Agra in the month of May and June last year, following which the use of Ivermectin, a medicine to treat parasitic ailments, along with Doxycycline was introduced as a protocol across the state for both prophylactic as well as treatment purposes, the state Health Department said it would conduct a controlled study once the second wave of the pandemic subsides.
The state Health Department introduced Ivermectin as prophylaxis for close contacts of Covid patients, health workers as well as for the treatment of the patients themselves through a government order on August 6, 2020, after a committee headed by the Director General, Medical and Health Services, gave it the go ahead.
"Uttar Pradesh was the first state in the country to introduce large-scale prophylactic and therapeutic use of Ivermectin. In May-June 2020, a team at Agra, led by Dr Anshul Pareek, administered Ivermectin to all RRT team members in the district on an experimental basis. It was observed that none of them developed Covid-19 despite being in daily contact with patients who had tested positive for the virus," Uttar Pradesh State Surveillance Officer Vikssendu Agrawal said.
He added that based on the findings from Agra, the state government sanctioned the use of Ivermectin as a prophylactic for all the contacts of Covid patients and later cleared the administration of therapeutic doses for the treatment of such patients.
Claiming that timely introduction of Ivermectin since the first wave has helped the state maintain a relatively low positivity rate despite its high population density, he said, "Despite being the state with the largest population base and a high population density, we have maintained a relatively low positivity rate and cases per million of population".
