Maryland man accused of plotting ISIS-inspired terror attack near DC is indicted

A Maryland man accused of plotting an ISIS-inspired terror attack at a tourist site near Washington, D.C., was indicted Wednesday on a terrorism-related charge, the Justice Department announced.

Rondell Henry, 28, of Germantown was indicted on federal charges of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, the DOJ said.

Henry moved to the U.S. from Trinidad and Tobago 11 years ago and is a naturalized citizen.

He is accused of stealing a U-Haul van in Alexandria, Va., and driving it to Maryland, where he intended to use it as a weapon at the National Harbor complex on the Potomac River, according to previously filed court documents.

Prince George’s County Police reviewed surveillance footage and found the stolen van on March 27. Henry was arrested the next day after police say he tried to jump a security fence. He has remained detained pending a trial.

ISLAMIST TERROR PLOTS IN EUROPE DECLINING, BUT SCHEMES GETTING MORE ‘CREATIVE,’ ANALYSIS SAYS

Henry originally considered a March 27 attack at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, but he was unable bypass security there, so he drove to National Harbor instead, prosecutors said.

Henry is said to have told investigators he wanted to carry out an operation like the 2016 attack in Nice, France, in which a driver deliberately drove a truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day and killed 86 people.

He wanted to kill as many “disbelievers” as he could, Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Windom said during a detention hearing on April 9.

Henry allegedly watched ISIS propaganda videos of beheadings and fighting and found the actions admirable and brave, prosecutors said in a court filing. Investigators also uncovered Henry’s discarded phone and found images of armed Islamic State fighters, the ISIS flag and the man who killed 49 people and injured 53 others at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., three years ago.

If convicted, Henry will face up to 20 years in prison for the charge of attempting to provide material support to ISIS, and up to 10 years for transporting a stolen vehicle. Henry was first indicted in April and pleaded not guilty to transporting a stolen vehicle across state lines.

Doorbell-cam company Ring partners with 405 police agencies across US to share footage, fight crime

Westlake Legal Group 485467-ring-video-doorbell-2 Doorbell-cam company Ring partners with 405 police agencies across US to share footage, fight crime Melissa Leon fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/tech/topics/privacy fox-news/tech/technologies/video fox-news/tech/companies/amazon fox news fnc/tech fnc c0909ecd-3858-5e58-be25-e7bf78a871a9 article

Amazon’s doorbell-camera company, Ring, has partnered with more than 400 law enforcement agencies to give them access to video footage from outside homes, a new initiative that’s raised warning flags with some privacy advocates.

Some 405 police agencies have been using Neighbors Portal, an extension of the company’s Neighbors app, Ring founder and CEO Jamie Siminoff said in a blog post.

The video-sharing partnerships allow police to request footage during specific time frames and in certain areas, though authorities can’t see live streams of residents’ front doors, and homeowners have the right to nix requests for footage.

AMAZON’S POLICE PARTNERSHIP FUELS PRIVACY CONCERNS

The company’s new Active Law Enforcement Map lets users see which local agencies are participating in Neighbors, Ring said, and the map will be updated.

The Neighbors Portal lets local police engage with their community, Siminoff said, “from posting important information about crime and safety events in their neighborhoods to viewing and commenting on public posts as a verified law enforcement officer, to asking for help on active investigations by submitting requests for video recordings.”

The Neighbors app has already gotten stolen guns off the streets and recovered a diabetic child’s pilfered medical supplies, Siminoff said.

“Every member of a community plays a vital role in making neighborhoods safer, and we’re proud that our users can decide how exactly they want to contribute to those conversations,” he said.

“We’ve also been thoughtful about designing how law enforcement engages with the Neighbors app to ensure users always stay in control of the information they share, and that their privacy is protected.”

AMAZON TACTIC NUDGES SHOPPERS TO PRIVATE-LABEL BRANDS JUST BEFORE THEY CLICK ‘BUY’

Ring launched Neighbors in May 2018. It said this past February that its app has helped reduce crime. Ring also pointed out that users had “full control” over who views their video footage, and that “only the content that a user chooses to make publicly available on Neighbors (by posting it to the app) can be viewed via the Neighbors app or by local law enforcement.”

“Ring does not view or share a user’s videos that are not posted to the app without the user’s express permission or a valid and binding legal demand properly served on us,” the company said.

Even so, Ring’s announcement on Wednesday caused many critics to sound the alarm over privacy issues.

“By sending photos and alerts every time the camera detects motion or someone rings the doorbell, the app can create an illusion of a household under siege,” Matthew Guariglia of the Electronic Frontier Foundation told USA Today. (The nonprofit digital rights group says it defends digital privacy and free speech.)

“It turns what seems like a perfectly safe neighborhood into a source of anxiety and fear,” Guariglia said. “This raises the question: Do you really need Ring, or have Amazon and the police misled you into thinking that you do?”

Others took to Twitter to express their disapproval of the law enforcement partnership.

“One more reason to not use [Ring],” said SpaceSimGuy. “Big brother just keeps getting bigger.”

The public response led Ring to clarify how the system works.

“Recent coverage of the Neighbors program is misleading,” the company tweeted in response to the criticisms. “We want to set the record straight — you are in control of your videos. They are only shared if you post them or provide consent. Police go through Ring when making a request, and you can decline.”

Jason Chaffetz: Gillibrand dropping out of 2020 race a ‘realistic’ decision

The decision by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., to exit the 2020 presidential race is beneficial to New York state and realistic for the lawmaker, according to Jason Chaffetz.

Gillibrand’s decision shows her campaign failed to gain traction, Chaffetz claimed Wednesday on “The Five.”

“It’s a realistic viewpoint,” he said. “She never caught on, didn’t have a message that resonated.”

“She can blame a lot of things — it just did not work. I think it’s better for her and New York and everybody else.”

KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND DROPS OUT OF 2020 PRESIDENTIAL RACE

The New Yorker, who first joined the Senate after Hillary Clinton was nominated secretary of state by then-President Barack Obama, thanked her supporters on social media.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Gillibrand wrote.

“Now let’s go beat Donald Trump and win back the Senate.”

Adding to Chaffetz’s reaction, host Dana Perino claimed some political observers in the state were beginning to express serious doubts about Gillibrand’s presidential viability.

“There were people in New York starting to say, ‘Excuse me, you know you’re not going to become president, why don’t you focus on being here at home?'” Perino said.

In a separate video on Twitter, Gillibrand said she nonetheless wanted to win the party’s nomination. “But it’s important to know when it’s not your time and to know how you can best serve your community and country.”

She added, “I believe I can best serve by helping unite us to beat Donald Trump in 2020.”

Prior to becoming senator, the 52-year-old was a Democratic U.S. congresswoman from an upstate district.

Former acting AG: Potential for IG’s Comey-centric report to ‘lay bare a lot of the rumors or innuendo we’ve heard’

Westlake Legal Group Comey-Whitaker_AP-FOX Former acting AG: Potential for IG's Comey-centric report to 'lay bare a lot of the rumors or innuendo we've heard' fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/person/james-comey fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 4c555ed2-c9b0-57d2-ae04-30be5fbaa3fa

Former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said the potential release of an inspector general report focusing on ex-FBI Director James Comey could shed new light on why he was fired.

Whitaker, who served in the interim between former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and current AG William Barr, claimed Wednesday on “The Story” that Comey and top brass operated as if they were “above the law.”

“I think it’s going to lay bare a lot of the rumors or innuendo we’ve heard,” he said of the potential release from the inspector general.

“It’s going to say specifically what Jim did leak and how he leaked it.”

FEDS IN FINAL STAGES OF POSSIBLE PROSECUTION DECISION FOR MCCABE

The purported document is said to concentrate on the former FBI director’s leaking of memos detailing his interactions with President Trump just prior to his firing.

Those memos were then passed by Comey to Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University, who in turn gave them to The New York Times.

Comey later admitted to that arrangement during congressional testimony.

According to Whitaker, that situation exemplified the questionable “culture” Comey oversaw inside the bureau.

DOJ WILL NOT PROSECUTE COMEY FOR LEAKING MEMOS AFTER IG REFERRAL: SOURCES

“These folks were running their own plays,” he said. “They did not believe they were in the chain of command at the Department of Justice. Jim is really demonstrating why he was fired, quite frankly.”

More from Media

“I think one of the things [the IG report] is also going to lay bare, once you hear the story of Comey and McCabe told together, is that there was a culture of leaking in the senior offices at the FBI that really was out of control.”

Whitaker, a former federal prosecutor in Iowa, added the culture he said Comey instilled was “dangerous.”

Regarding Andrew McCabe, who was Comey’s deputy director at the FBI, federal prosecutors appear to be close to a decision on whether to charge the newly minted CNN contributor.

A source close to the process said that McCabe has had a “target on his back” because of the Justice Department inspector general findings against him over actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as well as his role in the surveillance warrants against Trump campaign associates during the Russia election-meddling investigation. McCabe is a former deputy and acting director of the FBI.

Amazon tactic nudges shoppers to private-label brands just before they click ‘Buy’

Amazon has introduced a new feature that markets its private-label brands right before consumers add rival products to their shopping carts.

The Washington Post conducted dozens of product searches and saw offers for a “similar item to consider” featuring an Amazon brand appearing just above the area where shoppers click to add a purchase to their cart.

The boxes reportedly touted lower-priced Amazon versions of everyday items like Glad trash bags, Dr. Scholl’s gel insoles and Energizer batteries.

The retail behemoth, of course, has a huge amount of power over what’s sold on its platform thanks to its data-mining capabilities. That dominance is drawing scrutiny from regulators and lawmakers in America — including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who wants to break up Amazon on antitrust grounds.

According to reseach firm eMarketer, Amazon is expected to account for more than 37 percent of all e-commerce sales in the U.S. this year.

“It’s an ad at exactly the moment the customer is ready to buy,” James Thomson, a former senior manager in business development at Amazon and now a partner at brand consultancy Buy Box Experts, told The Washington Post. “I don’t see how that’s not unfair.”

Amazon defended itself in a statement to The Post, likening the promotion to the way any store would push its own private-label goods.

AMAZON SLAMMED OVER PRODUCT SAFETY ISSUES

“Like any retailer we promote our own brands in our stores, which provide high-quality products and great value to customers,” Amazon spokeswoman Nell Rona told The Post. “We also extensively promote products from our selling partners.”

The Post found examples of AmazonBasics being shown to shoppers searching for diapers, coffee pods, beauty products, vitamin supplements, nicotine gum and more.

Juan Williams blasts MSNBC host for reporting unverified Trump story: ‘Outrageous claim’

Fox News’ Juan Williams reacted angrily Wednesday to MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell making a questionable report about President Trump Tuesday night, calling it an “outrageous claim.”

“It seems to me we’ve gone away from gatekeepers in journalism, you know, because social media is like who has it first and who can just make an outrageous statement that gets lots of clicks,” Williams said on “The Five.” “And this was an outrageous statement.”

O’Donnell and fellow MSNBC host Rachel Maddow were discussing how Trump was “able to obtain loans when no one else would loan him any money” when he tossed out the unverified speculation.

WHITE HOUSE SLAMS MSNBC FOR UNVERIFIED REPORT, SAYS LEFT-WING OUTLETS HAVE ‘WEAPONIZED’ THE MEDIA

“I stress ‘if true,’ because this is a single source who has told me that Deutsche Bank obtained tax returns… this single source close to Deutsche Bank has told me that Donald Trump’s loan documents there show that he has co-signers. That’s how he was able to obtain those loans and that the co-signers are Russian oligarchs.”

It seems to me we’ve gone away from gatekeepers in journalism.

— Juan Williams

Trump’s legal team sent a harshly worded letter to NBC Wednesday demanding an apology and retraction

Williams criticized O’Donnell’s reporting and his apology that he tweeted Wednesday.

“I mean by his own admission he really didn’t have the story,” Williams said. “No journalist in America would say ‘a single source’ and that you haven’t gone to your editors and nobody has vetted this story.”

Williams blamed O’Donnell’s urgency to report the unverified story on what he called “confirmation bias.”

“In other words, they take stories that they want to be true and then they say, ‘Oh, you know what? I’m going to believe this story’… ‘I’m not going to check it out because that might get in the way of my good feelings,'” Williams said. “And people don’t seem to understand this is a mistake. It’s not good.”

Midwest farmers’ Trump loyalty tested by new corn-ethanol rules

After President Trump levied tariffs on China that roiled global markets, the patience of many Midwest farmers with a president they mostly supported in 2016 has been put to a significant test.

The trigger wasn’t Trump’s China tariffs, but the waivers the administration granted this month to 31 oil refineries so they don’t have to blend ethanol into their gasoline. Since roughly 40 percent of the U.S. corn crop is turned into ethanol, it was a fresh blow to corn producers already struggling with five years of low commodity prices and the threat of mediocre harvests resulting from bad weather.

“I’ve never seen farmers so tired, so frustrated, and they’re to the point of anger,” said Kelly Nieuwenhuis, a farmer from Primghar in northwest Iowa, who said the waivers were a hot topic at a recent meeting of the Iowa Corn Growers Association. Nieuwenhuis, speaking to The Associated Press, said he voted for Trump in 2016, but now he’s not sure who he’ll back next year.

ICE OFFICES, WORKERS HIT BY WAVE OF VIOLENCE AND THREATS

“That’s our own country stabbing us in the back,” farmer Randy Miller said. “That’s the president going, ‘The oil companies need to make more than the American farmer.’ … That was just, ‘I like the oil company better or I’m friends with the oil company more than I’m friends with the farmer.’”

The Environmental Protection Agency last month kept its annual target for the level of corn ethanol that must be blended into the nation’s gasoline supply under the Renewable Fuel Standard at 15 billion gallons for 2020. That was a deep disappointment to an ethanol industry that wanted a higher target to offset exemptions granted to smaller refiners. Those waivers have cut demand by an estimated 2.6 billion gallons since Trump took office.

At least 15 ethanol plants have been shut down or idled since the EPA increased waivers under Trump, and a 16th casualty came Wednesday: the Corn Plus ethanol facility in the south-central Minnesota town of Winnebago. The Renewable Fuels Association says the closures have affected more than 2,500 jobs.

The 31 new waivers issued this month came on top of 54 granted since early 2018, according to the association. While the waivers are intended to reduce hardships on small oil refiners, some beneficiaries included smaller refineries owned by big oil companies.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said at a farm policy summit in Decatur, Ill.,  on Wednesday that Trump will take action to soften the effects. He would not say what the president might do or when, but said Trump believed the waivers by his EPA were “way overdone.”

NJ mom charged in toddler’s death nearly one year after remains were found in alley: prosecutors

A New Jersey mother was taken into custody on Wednesday, indicted on charges including the murder of her toddler son a year ago, prosecutors said.

Tynaizha Brown, 24, of Camden, was arrested about 10:20 a.m. after a Camden County grand jury indicted her in connection with the death of her 22-month-old.

The investigation began on Oct. 11, 2018, when a passer-by found the decomposing remains of a toddler in an alley in Camden. Investigators said they believed the body of the boy, Jah’vi Brown, had been there for at least two weeks, Fox 29 reported.

Prosecutors said the toddler’s father, Anthony Burnett, came to the Bellmawr Police Department last Dec. 6 to report his son missing, saying he hadn’t seen him for months. Investigators said a DNA sample of the missing boy was compared to the remains, and his identity was confirmed.

Further investigation revealed that Jah’vi was last seen on Aug. 20, 2018, in Bellmawr, Fox 29 reported, adding that neither parent reported the child missing before Dec. 6.

TODDLER DIES AFTER FALLING INTO GREASE TRAP AT TIM HORTON’S RESTAURANT

In January, a medical examiner determined that the boy’s death was due to homicidal violence.

Prosecutors said there were two additional counts in the indictment: second-degree aggravated assault and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

Georgia man charged as serial rapist was recruit for police department that arrested him

A former police recruit accused of a series of rapes in Georgia was arrested by members of the same department where he hoped to work, officials said Wednesday.

Kenneth Thomas Bowen III, 24, was charged with seven counts of rape and one count of sexual battery, Clayton County Police Chief Kevin Roberts said at a news conference.

Roberts called the rapes “a cloud over our community.”

DNA testing from evidence collected at the crimes scenes connected Bowen to the rapes. Police said they took him into custody at his job but did not disclose the name of his employer.

Roberts stressed that Bowen was never a police officer.

“Kenneth Bowen was never a certified police officer with this agency,” he said. “He was hired by me in June 2018. He was also terminated by me on September 12, 2018.”

Bowen was dismissed from the police academy for being absent without leave and being “untruthful,” Roberts said.

“Had he not attempted to join the ranks of the Clayton County Police Department, it’s questionable as to when we would have apprehended him,” Roberts said.

Investigators eliminated multiple suspects through DNA testing, Clayton County Police Lt. Tom Reimers said. A review of 911 calls of suspicious people over the last several years led detectives to Bowen.

After obtaining his name and birthdate from a 2016 call, investigators found similarities between Bowen’s photo and police sketches from descriptions given by rape victims, Reimers said.

A warrant for Bowen’s DNA was obtained last week. After police surveilled Bowen at his job, they obtained his DNA during a traffic stop. The results came back Tuesday.

Nigel Farage: Brexit followed by boosted UK prosperity could be the end of the EU

If the United Kingdom makes a clean break from the European Union on Oct. 31 and continues to prosper on its own, it could mean the end of the Brussels-based bloc, according to Nigel Farage.

Farage claimed Wednesday on “Your World” that the EU is a key piece to the globalist view of the world and Brexit would be a major blow to that “project.”

“Us breaking free, us two years down the road being — seeming to do well, will be the end of the European Union,” Farage said. “The European Union is at the heart of the globalist project. We’ll be free of Greece and Italy and all of these economies that are doing so badly.”

QUEEN APPROVES BORIS JOHNSON’S REQUEST TO SUSPEND PARLIAMENT

Farage, a member of the European Parliament and leader of the Brexit Party, said the potential departure is not unlike President Trump’s election when it comes to deconstructing globalism.

“Brexit, Trump winning — these are all big blows back, big fights back against globalism,” he said.

“Globalism is about losing your national democracy, losing your independence, losing control of your borders. We are, with this Brexit battle, we are on the front lines of something that doesn’t just affect us, it affects America — it affects the whole of the western world.”

However, Farage expressed caution at how the United Kingdom should break from the union. He said while new Prime Minister Boris Johnson has brought an “optimistic” boost to 10 Downing Street, he fears the New York-born leader will execute an “amended form” of his predecessor former Prime Minister Theresa May’s failed Brexit agreement.

“It looks like he wants to go for an amended form of that withdrawal agreement, and that would still leave us very tied to the EU rules,” he said, adding such an exit from the European Union would also prevent any immediate bilateral trade deal with the U.S.

Farage also defended Johnson’s decision to get royal approval to suspend Parliament until mid-October, a request that was approved Wednesday by Queen Elizabeth II.

“We have a constitutional monarchy, which means Parliament operates through the… auspices of the queen,” he said, adding Johnson’s detractors had characterized the move as a “terrible trick” when in reality it was, “actually a very normal thing.”

He added Johnson should push for a “clean” Brexit, which he claimed would be the most effective way forward for the U.K.
