Someone smarter than me why malfeasance in office isn't a basis for the elected county sheriff to arrest a D.A. and sequester them awaiting trial away from office due to impending public corruption investigation on willful failure to enforce the law?
[NYPOST] Police officers fatally shot the gunman who murdered a manager at a Houston Cracker Barrel when she tried to protect a co-worker from being mugged, officials announced Sunday night.
Undercover deputies from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office were conducting surveillance on the murder suspect, a 28-year-old black male, when they saw him leave the location around 6 p.m. and begin walking down the street, Mike Lee, assistant chief with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, said at a presser.
He was approached by the deputies, who called him by name before two deputies opened fire when they believed he had a weapon.
"He began running from them and as they were chasing them, he made some gestures as if he were pointing a weapon at them. At that time our deputies opened fire ... on the suspect," Lee said.
The suspect was transported by a 3 hr circuitous route
to Kingwood Hospital in Houston, where he was pronounced dead. He's dead, Jim! His name is not being released until he’s ID’d by the county forensics office.
Sgt. Dennis Wollford of the department’s homicide unit said the suspect had two open felony assault warrants, and was "believed to be armed and dangerous."
Wollford said there’s "not an obvious gun that we’ve located," but said officials are still processing the scene.
Beloved 59-year-old grandmother Robin Baucom, who had worked at the Cracker Barrel for nearly 34 years, was inside the eatery early Saturday when two men in a Dodge Charger pulled up near the front door, the Star-Telegram reported.
A man got out of the car and attempted to snatch a purse from another employee as she tried to get in the door. Baucom saw what was happening and ran to unlock the front door so the employee could get inside, pushing the mugger as he tried to force his way through the door.
[NYPOST] Virginia police have arrested a man in connection to the disappearance of a 28-year-old shop clerk, who has not been seen since she went to take out the trash after closing up shop last week, authorities said.
Tyrone N. Samuel, 50, of Heathsville, was arrested and charged with the abduction of Ahreal Smith, whose whereabouts are still unknown, Northumberland County Sheriff Johnny Beauchamp announced Sunday.
Several local businesses and organizations have pooled together a $9,400 reward for any information leading to her.
Smith was last seen around 9 p.m. Wednesday at the Claraville Little Sue Store in Heathsville where she works. She was spotted on surveillance footage leaving the store to start her car around 9:05 p.m. before returning inside, police said at a presser.
[NYPOST] An Ohio man stole a car while a teenage passenger was asleep in the backseat, leading police on a high-speed chase while the teen texted real-time location updates to authorities, police said.
Raylon Scott, 19, was snoozing in the backseat of a 2012 Audi A4 at a Hyundai dealership in Findlay when Justin Vaughn, 32, suddenly hopped in the driver’s seat and sped off with Scott still inside.
Scott and his friend, Kharisma Guajardo, 17, had brought the Audi there to the dealership to trade it in.
Police were quickly notified that the vehicle was stolen, and Guajardo was able to track the vehicle as it took off "at a high rate of speed" eastbound on US 224.
Scott texted his friend real-time updates of their location "as well as messages about [Vaughn’s] driving and threatening behaviors." The messages were forwarded to authorities, Findlay police said in a blurb.
Police from neighboring Tiffin tracked and located Vaughn, who fled and prompted a vehicle pursuit into Seneca County.
The pursuit ended when Vaughn crashed the Audi northwest of Sycamore. Both Vaughn and Scott suffered minor injuries from the crash, police said, and were treated at the scene by Sycamore EMS. A Seneca County Sheriff’s Office deputy also received an injury to his hand.
Vaughn was arrested after the crash and transferred to the Findlay Police Department.
He was incarcerated at the Hancock County Jail on charges of kidnapping, aggravated robbery, and motor vehicle theft.
[BREITBART] A suspect allegedly sucker punched a 79-year-old man with a cane in Brooklyn on Friday, according to video footage of the incident.
Authorities said it took place at approximately 12:00 p.m. on Fourth Avenue near Carroll Street at the edge of Gowanus and Park Slope, Pix 11 reported.
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) posted video of the incident on Saturday.
The footage showed the suspect arriving on a motorized scooter and leaving it on the side of the road. He approached the sidewalk where the victim was standing holding a cane near another person.
The man scanned the area, then apparently hit the victim in the head with his fist, according to the clip. The victim fell on the pavement and the suspect went back to the scooter and fled.
The victim received treatment at the scene regarding a head injury, officers noted.
The elderly man was later identified as Ralph Belgrove, and the man on the scooter identified as 29-year-old Disheem Riley, according to the Daily Mail.
"Although the video is slightly blurry, a still photo of the Riley saw him identified within hours of the footage being released. He has been slapped with assault and menacing charges," the report said.
Officials have not released a motive for the assault or what could have led up to it.
During a recent broadcast of Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends First, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) noted there was "mixed messaging" regarding crime from New York City Mayor Eric Adams ...retired New York City police captain, member of the New York State Senate, first Black Brooklyn borough president, law and order Dem after a brief fling with the Publicans. The New York Times isn't fond of him, suspecting he may not actually be black... (D).
Adams talked tough on crime, yet praised Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg while Bragg vowed not to prosecute certain crimes.
Malliotakis stated, "So, what New York City is going to see now is our city, unfortunately, move toward the anarchy of Portland ...a formerly lovely city in Oregon, governed by an unholy alliance of communists, anarchists, and incompetents. In 2017 the city was named as the fifth most business-friendly in the nation. It took only three years for the city to degenerate to the point where it became a national embarrassment, with antifa and Black Lives Matter bullying taxpayers and occasionally shooting one as an example to the others... , the murders of reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown ...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel... , the smash and grabs of the Socialist paradise of San Francisco ...where God struck dead Anton LaVey, home of the Sydney Ducks, ruled by Vigilance Committee from 1859 through 1867, reliably and volubly Democrat since 1964... , and I am deeply concerned about this."
"If we’re going to continue to elect people like this in our city, Batman is not even going to be able to save Gotham anymore," she added.
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] The star of the former MTV show “16 and Pregnant,” Jordan Cashmyer, has died at the age of 26. Sixteen and Pregnant, Twenty Six and Dead
News of Cashmyer's death was revealed on her mother on Cashmyer’s father’s Facebook page. She did not reveal the cause of death.
Cashmyer, who struggled with homelessness and teen pregnancy, was disowned by her parents on the show who did not approve of her relationship with her boyfriend, Derek Taylor. After being kicked out of her parents’ home, Cashmyerand her boyfriend struggled to find work and housing. She eventually gave birth to her daughter Genevieve.
"Last night I received a call no parent ever wants," the Facebook post reads. "My oldest beloved daughter, Jordan has passed away, she was only 26 years old. Our hearts are truly broken. No parent should ever have to go through losing a child, EVER."
The post added: "Please keep my family in your thoughts prayers as we navigate through this terrible tragedy. Please understand and respect our privacy at this time. We are surrounded by the love and support of our children, granddaughter Lyla and family members."
As detailed by Fox News, Cashmyer's struggles continued well after the show ended. In 2015, she signed over the custody rights of her daughter to Taylor’s mother. Deadline reports that in 2017, Cashmyer was arrested for drug possession, but had apparently celebrated a year of sobriety early last year.
Her representative told E! News that he learned of her death on January 15.
"This is an incredibly sad day. Jordan was a sweet and caring person," he stated. "Last we spoke she was doing well and seemed to be in a good place mentally and physically. I wish people had the opportunity to know her beyond her struggles. I was always rooting for her and am grateful I had the chance to know and work with her all these years."
"Life wasn't always kind to her so now she is able to be at peace."
[Breitbart] On this day in 1996, Civil Rights icon Barbara Jordan died just weeks before Congress and then-President Bill Clinton were set to advance her reforms to illegal and legal immigration focused on protecting poor and working class Americans from waves of job-killing and wage-crushing mass immigration.
Jordan, a Democrat, became a fixture of the Civil Rights movement after becoming the first black American state Senator in the nation since 1883 and the first black American woman elected to the Texas State Senate. Later, in 1972, Jordan became the first black American woman to preside over a legislative body in the U.S. when she was elected president pro tempore of the Texas State Senate.
That same year, Jordan was elected to Congress. Her election marked the first time a black American woman would represent the state of Texas in Washington, D.C.
“For Martin Luther King, Jr. … he was fighting for jobs and fair pay for African Americans and that’s what Barbara Jordan was doing,” NumbersUSA President Roy Beck told Breitbart News.
Following President George H.W. Bush’s Immigration Act of 1990, which blew open the door for today’s mass immigration levels, Jordan chaired the United States Commission on Immigration Reform.
“We think about 1965 having restarted mass immigration, but it was the 1990s that just shut the door on upward mobility for all Americans in the underclass,” Beck said. “It was just an abandonment of the underclass.”
Of course the Democrats have memory-holed their once-vaunted hero who spoke at the 1992 Democratic Convention and authored the report on immigration that recommended everything the OrangeMan was elected to do.
From the WABAC Machine, here she is summarizing a vision of border enforcement, skills-based immigration and Americanization of immigrants:
Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence:those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave.

[RT] The North Korea ...hereditary Communist monarchy distinguished by its truculence and periodic acts of violence. Distinguishing features include Songun (Army First) policy, which involves feeding the army before anyone but the Dear Leadership, and Juche, which is Kim Jong Il's personal interpretation of Marxism-Leninism, which he told everybody was brilliant. In 1950 the industrialized North invaded agrarian South Korea. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force opposing the invasion, with the United States providing around 90% of the military personnel. Seventy years later the economic results are in and it doesn't look good for Juche... n hacker group APT37 attacked the Russian Foreign Ministry and its employees in late 2021 and subsequently compromised the account of a government employee, US information security experts have reported.
According to researchers at US cybersecurity companies Cluster25 and Black Lotus Labs, and later reported by Moscow daily Kommersant, a phishing campaign was targeted at the Ministry back in October. The researchers claim that some employees were sent archives of documents and asked to provide vaccination details, while others were fed with links to malware disguised as software the Russian government uses to collect Covid vaccination statuses. As a result, one account was compromised.
From the compromised address, hackers managed to send a phishing email to Russian Deputy Minister Sergey Ryabkov on December 20 and also targeted the Russian Embassy in Indonesia.
APT37 is well-known for using software called Konni, a remote administration tool. It has been reportedly used to target South Korea, as well as political organizations in Japan, India, and China, among other countries. According to Kommersant, the group has been around since at least 2017.
This latest accusation isn’t the first time that North Korea has been blamed for attempted phishing attacks on Russia. In November last year, Kommersant reported that another hacker group, Kimsuky, sent phishing emails written on behalf of well-known Russian experts, scientists, and NGOs to experts on Korea in an attempt to obtain online login credentials.
Last week, Russian security services arrested a notorious group of hackers following information provided by US authorities. The Federal Security Service ... the successor to the KGB... (FSB) detained people in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Lipetsk Region who were allegedly members of REvil, a notorious ransomware group known for receiving millions in ransom payments.
As many as 15 server infrastructures were shut down on Monday in a global bust
German police led the take down of LabVPN and were helped by Britain's NCA
The NCA said the network was used by criminal gangs with links to cyber attacks
They 'cause significant economic harm to businesses', but would not say which
WHAT WAS LABVPN BEFORE IT WAS BUSTED?
LabVPN started in 2008 and allows cyber-criminals to control botnets and malware distribution. It offered VPN services on the Dark Web based on OpenVPN technology and 2048-bit encryption to provide online anonymity for as little as £44 a year. It was a popular choice for cybercriminals, who could use it to hide from the authorities. It was also used to create criminal infrastructure and communicate behind ransomware campaigns.
[BBC] Days of sightings of drones over key Swedish sites including nuclear plants have prompted the country's security service to take the lead in an investigation.Three nuclear sites have been targeted and sightings have been reported over airports and the royal palace.
Authorities have not speculated on who is behind the mysterious drones.
Police and the coastguard are searching the sea and islands around Stockholm, local media reports say.
The latest sightings on Monday evening involved a drone above the Forsmark nuclear plant, but security agency Sapo said it was also investigating earlier drone flights near the Ringhals and Oskarshamn power plants. Police appealed to the public to come forward with information.
They give racehorses lasix (thus the expression p*ss like a racehorse) to prevent pulmonary edema. I was on it as part of my BP regimen for a long time. I wonder if it would have any salutary effects similar to this.

Heparin (blood thinner) was on the Front Line COVID Critical Care doctors list in the spring of 2020.
The issue here is that airplane radar altimeters and 5G cellular are on adjacent frequency bands. Radiated energy bleeds from one band to another, causing interference. Interference with a plane's altimeter is probably not good. The two-dollar word is "adjacent band operation".
Radios can be engineered to be more selective about the frequencies they receive, but before 5G, this was not a requirement. On paper, there is no problem so we are going to do the real-world experiment and find out.
