Chris Brown‘s comment on Rihanna‘s recent Instagram photo has many of her fans less than thrilled.

On Thursday, the “Work” songstress posted a picture of herself modeling a look from her lingerie line, Savage X Fenty.

“Be the first to have this and more pieces from the @savagexfenty show now on SAVAGEX.com,” she captioned the snap.

A few hours later, the 31-year-old’s ex wrote in the comments section: “I wanna be the lamp” — referencing a prop in the background of the photo — along with a smirking emoji face.

Her fans immediately slammed the “No Guidance” singer for his remark.

Rihanna was a victim of domestic violence when Brown, who was her boyfriend at the time, assaulted her the night before the 2009 Grammys. She was left with visible contusions and bruises on her face. And Brown was sentenced to five years of probation and 180 days of community labor after pleading guilty to felony assault and making criminal threats.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels announce halt in attacks on Saudi Arabia

Yemen’s Houthi rebels said Friday they are halting all drone and ballistic missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, six days after claiming responsibility for a strike that crippled a key oil facility in the kingdom.

The announcement could be the first step toward a wider ceasefire in Yemen, but its effect remained unclear, and there was no immediate response from the Saudi-led coalition.

The halt was proclaimed by Mahdi al Mashat, the head of the Houthis’ supreme political council, which runs rebel-held areas in Yemen. He said the group was waiting for a “positive response” from Saudi Arabia. It was not clear what such a response would entail.

The Iran-backed Houthis claimed responsibility for the Sept. 14 attacks on Saudi oil facilities, briefly interrupting the production for five percent of the world’s oil supplies. The U.S. and the Saudis have blamed Iran, which denies any responsibility and has said that any retaliatory strikes would result in “all-out war.”

PENTAGON WEIGHING MOVE TO SEND MORE TROOPS TO MIDDLE EAST TO DETER CONFLICT 

Yemen has been ravaged by conflict since late 2014 when Houthi rebels, supported by Iran, captured much of the country, including the capital, Sanaa. In 2015, a Saudi-led military coalition launched an air campaign against Houthi rebels. More than 70,000 civilians have died since 2016 and millions more live on the brink of famine, according to the Armed Conflict and Location Event Data Project (ACLED).

‘SONIC WEAPON’ USED ON DIPLOMATS IN CUBA MAY HAVE BEEN PESTICIDE, STUDY FINDS 

Alternatively, Lebanese militant group Hezbollah called Friday for Saudi Arabia to cease its influence in Yemen’s civil war. In a televised speech, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah warned Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to stop inciting war “because your houses are made of glass.” Hezbollah and the Houthis are both backed by Iran.

“Continuing the war against Yemen with no solution is pointless. You are starting to pay the price,” Nasrallah said. “One strike knocked out half the oil production, and another strike, you can imagine what it will do.”

The Saudi-UAE-led coalition has carried out more than 18,000 raids on Houthi-held areas with logistical support from the U.S. The Houthis have significantly stepped up their attacks on Saudi targets in recent months.

Wall Street executive says stock market ‘would be very vulnerable’ if Elizabeth Warren becomes president

Westlake Legal Group Elizabeth-Warren-AP Wall Street executive says stock market 'would be very vulnerable' if Elizabeth Warren becomes president Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/economy fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox news fnc/media fnc article 082cc846-7846-582b-9b7f-f31d1b8be915

A Wall Street executive made a gloomy prediction on Thursday about a potential Elizabeth Warren presidency, suggesting that the stock market “won’t open” if she was sworn into office.

Omega Advisors CEO Leon Cooperman appeared on CNBC to express his concerns and shared his predictions on what would happen if the Massachusetts senator was elected.

“There’s unquestionably a shift to the left in this country. They won’t open the stock market if Elizabeth Warren is the next president,” Cooperman claimed.

He later explained his rationale; “When I said they wouldn’t open the market if Elizabeth Warren won, my way of just saying the market would be very vulnerable.”

When asked what will happen to the stock market if Warren clinches the Democratic nomination, Cooperman predicted that the market will be “lower” if she or her progressive colleague, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, becomes a “credible opponent” to President Trump, citing a potential “25 percent” dip in the market.

“Her policies are counterproductive, they’re negative for capitalism, and the capitalism is what brought America to the position that we’re in today,” Cooperman added.

The Democratic 2020 hopeful offered a response to Cooperman on Twitter.

“Our economy works great for people who can use their money and power to become even richer and more powerful,” Warren wrote. “But I’ve got a plan to ensure it works for everyone else too. If that scares hedge fund billionaires like this guy, fine by me.”

Dems call for impeachment of ‘criminal’ Trump as new details surface on call with Ukraine

Westlake Legal Group Castro-Trump-AP Dems call for impeachment of 'criminal' Trump as new details surface on call with Ukraine Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/julian-castro fox news fnc/media fnc d8a84004-2477-5f77-8f5d-01fd05ab4c0b article

President Trump faced fresh calls for impeachment on Friday after a new report claimed Trump asked the president of Ukraine numerous times in a single phone call to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that, in a July phone call, Trump repeatedly asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to work with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani on a probe into Hunter Biden. The call came a month before Trump put a hold on $250 million in military aid to Ukraine — a hold that was eventually released after objections from the Senate.

Joe Biden, now a Democratic presidential candidate, has faced scrutiny for months over his past role pressuring the country to fire its top prosecutor while he was leading a corruption investigation into a natural gas company that had ties to Hunter. Giuliani has suggested that Biden, as VP, worked to protect the company from investigation. Biden said on Friday that the claim has no credibility.

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, a 2020 candidate, responded to the report by calling Trump a “criminal” who need to be impeached “immediately.”

WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT, REPORTEDLY ON TRUMP ‘PROMISE’ TO FOREIGN LEADER, TOUCHES OFF DC FIRESTORM

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., renewed his impeachment calls on Friday, accusing Trump of “moral vandalism.” “This story is stunning and should be shaking Washington right now — Donald Trump’s moral vandalism disqualifies him from being president. As I’ve said before, it’s time for impeachment proceedings,” he tweeted.

Fellow 2020 contender Beto O’Rouke had already called for impeachment in reaction to statements made by Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s attorney, on Thursday night. “When will Congress have the courage to act?” he asked in an apparent dig at leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

DEMOCRATS AREN’T ACTUALLY IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT– YET, BUT THEY ARE DIGGING DEEP

Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, claimed the House had “no choice” but to impeach after the Journal’s report surfaced.

“Everything Nixon did during Watergate pales in comparison to Trump using the power of the Presidency to pressure a foreign leader who needs U.S. Aid to investigate a political opponent,” Pfeiffer said.

The whistleblower controversy seemed to raise even more concerns among the 2020 field, many of whom already called for the president’s impeachment.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., called on Friday for the whistleblower to come forward, offering protection as he defied the administration. She also suggested that Trump was trying to interfere in the 2020 election like, according to her, he did in 2016.

More from Media

“He has openly invited interference and now we have information that suggests that again, he is engaged in that kind of behavior,” she said at a campaign stop. “What he fails to understand is that he is the President of the United States and that office … is the people’s office — not his office,” she added.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., didn’t directly address the report on Twitter but did dispute Trump’s attorneys’ claims that he couldn’t be criminally prosecuted.

“Yes, he can,” she tweeted on Friday after the Journal’s report surfaced. Trump, for his part, has denied any wrongdoing.

“The Radical Left Democrats and their Fake News Media partners, headed up again by Little Adam Schiff, and batting Zero for 21 against me, are at it again!” he tweeted, referring to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif. “They think I may have had a ‘dicey’ conversation with a certain foreign leader based on a ‘highly partisan’ whistleblowers … statement.”

“Strange that with so many other people hearing or knowing of the perfectly fine and respectful conversation, that they would not have also come forward. Do you know the reason why they did not? Because there was nothing said wrong, it was pitch perfect!” he added.

Louisiana police officer killed, another wounded, and 2 suspects are held

Westlake Legal Group 469767a6-iStock-Police-Tape Louisiana police officer killed, another wounded, and 2 suspects are held Louis Casiano fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 226e6f29-9f1c-52b3-b108-28154ea7d837

A Louisiana police officer was killed Friday and another was wounded following a vehicle chase in a New Orleans-area suburb, authorities said.

Witnesses said the chase began after a traffic stop near State Routes 22 and 190 near Mandeville.

A suspect got out of the vehicle and allegedly shot at a Mandeville police officer, who died. Another officer arrived and was shot as well, WVUE-TV reported.

“We have a wife that is grieving. We have children that are grieving,” Mandeville Police Chief Gerald Sticker told reporters at a news conference.

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Randy Smith said the injured officer was grazed. It was unclear whether the officers returned fire. The identities of the officers were not released.

Two suspects were taken into custody, Smith’s office said.

Gov. John Bol Edwards tweeted about the deadly attack.

“Our hearts go out to the officer’s family and friends, the people of Mandeville and the entire law enforcement community. Please join @FirstLadyOfLA and me in praying for our state today. #lagov #lalege,” he posted.

Missy Noel, who was at a golf tournament nearby, told NOLA.com that golfers were ordered off the course and told to shelter inside.

New details reported on Trump-Ukraine call as Dems clash with White House on complaint

The controversy over President Trump’s mysterious call with a foreign leader that prompted a whistleblower complaint ratcheted up Friday afternoon as a new report said it involved Trump asking the president of Ukraine numerous times in a single phone call to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

Meanwhile, after Trump called the whistleblower a partisan and dismissed the allegation as “another political hack job,” Democrats in Congress accused the president of trying to intimidate whistleblowers and demanded the administration hand over the complaint and a transcript of the call, while 2020 hopefuls renewed calls for impeachment.

CONTROVERSY OVER TRUMP PHONE CALL CENTERS ON UKRAINE, AS PRESIDENT DECRIES ‘PARTISAN’ COMPLAINT

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that, in a July phone call, Trump repeatedly asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to work with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani on a probe into Hunter Biden. The call came a month before Trump put a hold on $250 million in military aid to Ukraine — a hold that was eventually released after objections from the Senate.

Joe Biden, now a Democratic presidential candidate, has faced scrutiny for months over his past role pressuring the country to fire its top prosecutor while he was leading a corruption investigation into a natural gas company that had ties to Hunter. Giuliani has suggested that Biden, as VP, worked to protect the company from investigation. Biden said on Friday that the claim has no credibility.

“Not one single credible outlet has given any credibility to his assertion, not one single one,” he told reporters. “So I have no comment except the president should start to be president.”

What initially touched off the controversy is a secret whistleblower complaint that the director of national intelligence has kept from Congress, reportedly involving a “promise” Trump made to an unnamed foreign leader. In the latest development, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Thursday that the complaint relates to Ukraine. Fox News has not confirmed the reports.

WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT, REPORTEDLY ON TRUMP ‘PROMISE’ TO FOREIGN LEADER, TOUCHES OFF DC FIRESTORM 

Trump called that initial story “ridiculous” in the Oval Office, and said he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower. He wouldn’t say what was discussed in the call but said someone should “look into” Biden family connections to Ukraine.

“I have conversations with many leaders. It’s always appropriate. Always appropriate,” Trump said. “At the highest level, always appropriate. And anything I do, I fight for this country.”

Afterward, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and other Democratic committee leaders issued a statement demanding the administration hand over the complaint, after acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire would not share details of it with lawmakers.

“President Trump just went on national television—from the Oval Office—and personally attacked an Intelligence Community whistleblower who reported an urgent matter involving serious or flagrant misconduct,” the statement said, adding that the “brazen effort to intimidate this whistleblower risks a chilling effect on future whistleblowers.”

After the publication of the Journal’s story, 2020 Democrats quickly weighed in. Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro said that Trump “is a criminal.”

“He must be impeached immediately,” he said.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said that Trump “appears to be collaborating with foreign governments to attack America’s democracy” before she urged the whistleblower to come forward.

“I would absolutely urge this whistleblower to go directly to Congress, whether in closed session or in open session,” she said.

Schiff told reporters Friday that the whistleblower claim “deserves a thorough investigation.”

“Come hell or high water, that’s what we’re going to do,” he said. Democrats have been looking into whether Giuliani traveled to Ukraine to pressure the government to investigate the Biden activities, and have also sought a transcript of the July call between Trump and Zelensky.

The inspector general for the intelligence community received the whistleblower complaint and, according to correspondence with Schiff, considered the allegations “credible” and dealing with an “urgent concern.” Inspector General Michael Atkinson wrote that the DNI, “after consulting with the Department of Justice,” determined the complaint does not have to be shared with the intelligence committees under law. He wrote that he will “abide by that determination,” but disagrees with it.

In a letter Tuesday, the general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Jason Klitenic, wrote that the agency is protecting the whistleblower and argued the allegation does not meet the definition of “urgent concern.” He said the complaint “concerned conduct from someone outside the intelligence community and did not relate to `intelligence activity’ under the DNI’s supervision.”

Maguire is expected to testify publicly about the whistleblower complaint on Sept. 26. after being subpoenaed by the House intelligence committee. Schiff had accused Maguire of withholding a whistleblower complaint from Congress and questioned whether he had been directed to do so by the White House or the attorney general.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has picked a side in the long-running debate over whether LeBron James or Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time.

The former Texas congressman was pressed on the highly-contested issue during an appearance on “The Bill Simmons Podcast” released Friday,

“Who is the greatest basketball player of all time?” Simmons asked. “You have to answer.”

“LeBron,” O’Rourke responded.

“Oh my God. I’m out,” a visibly agitated Simmons exclaimed.

“Who’s the greatest basketball player of all time?” the 2020 hopeful asked the host.

“Not LeBron,” Simmons shot back. “It’s Michael Jordan!”

“Oh,” O’Rourke said.

Simmons knocked O’Rourke’s answer as a “millennial response,” adding that he’s “connecting with the Millenials, though.”

“I’m connecting with my son, Ulysses,” O’Rourke joked.

“[Poeple] 35 and under all think LeBron is the best ever,” Simmons said. “They pushed Jordan out. They just know Jordan as, like, the bad Charlotte Hornets owner.”

The former ESPN writer and noted Boston Celtics fan later told O’Rourke that he had “won him back” after the candidate shared that Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird was the player that “caught his attention” when O’Rourke was a child.

How to protect yourself from ransomware using Windows 10

Westlake Legal Group iStock-hacking How to protect yourself from ransomware using Windows 10 fox-news/tech/topics/security fox-news/tech/topics/cybercrime fox-news/tech/companies/microsoft fox news fnc/tech fnc Brooke Crothers article aedefa95-f583-5ea0-be54-24e432c56ba2

Microsoft offers built-in ransomware protection for Windows 10. Here’s how to make sure you’re protected.

Ransomware is a particularly vicious type of malware that not only denies access to your computer system and data but demands a ransom be paid to unlock files.

And the amount of ransom demanded keeps going up. A multimillion-dollar demand to an organization isn’t unusual anymore.

ROBOCALL ‘HIJACKING’ IS ON THE RISE, REPORT WARNS

Ransomware typically spreads through phishing emails or by visiting an infected website.

Turn on ransomware in Windows 10

Microsoft has a feature under Virus and Threat Protection that allows you to enable ransomware protection.

Here’s how to turn it on: Type in “Windows Defender settings” or “Windows Security” in the Windows 10 Cortana search bar (typically in the bottom lower left of the screen).

SEXTORTION SCAMS ARE BACK, SECURITY EXPERT WARNS

Then click on Virus and Protection settings and scroll down to “Ransomware protection” and select that.

Note that you may not be able to access Ransomware Protection if you have another third-party antivirus program running. Microsoft will warn you that you’re using multiple antivirus programs and will recommend that you uninstall other antivirus programs if you want to enable Microsoft’s Ransomware protection.

After you’re in Ransomware protection, toggle on Microsoft’s “Virus and Threat Protection.” Then go to “Controlled Folder Access” then “Protect folders.”  This will protect files and folders you select from unauthorized changes.

For example, if you have Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft’s file hosting service, you can turn on protection for the entire drive. Then you can recover files if they get encrypted by a ransomware attack.

The goal, of course, is to block suspicious software but if an app is blocked that you know is safe, you can build a white list. Use the Controlled Folder Access to whitelist apps. You can do this by going to “allow an app through Controlled folder access.”

Another useful feature is “Block History” that shows what’s been blocked.

TURN OFF YOUR BLUETOOTH, WARN SECURITY EXPERTS

Note that access to Ransomware Protection settings may vary depending on your PC and what version of Windows 10 you’re using.

And be warned: if you’re not using a cloud-based file hosting service with automatic backup, you should make sure you’re regularly backing up files so a ransomware attack doesn’t lock you out of critical local programs and data on your PC.
