Sacha Baron Cohen Nails The Problem With Zuckerberg’s Freedom Of Expression Defense

Westlake Legal Group 5da98f752000000912506110 Sacha Baron Cohen Nails The Problem With Zuckerberg’s Freedom Of Expression Defense

Sacha Baron Cohen used a metaphor involving a restaurant owner and neo-Nazis to tear into Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s claim that the social media platform champions freedom of expression.

The British actor and comedian posted a scathing thread on Twitter in which he dubbed Zuckerberg’s speech at Georgetown University on Thursday “disingenuous” and reminded the billionaire that “he is not the government, but the owner of a private business and not subject to the 1st Amendment!”

“If he owned a fancy restaurant and 4 neo-Nazis came goose-stepping into the dining room and were talking loudly about wanting to kill ‘Jewish scum,’ would he serve them an elegant eight-course meal? Or would tell them to get the f**k out of his restaurant? It’s the same thing,” added the “Borat” star.

“He has every legal right, indeed a moral duty, to tell them to get the f**k out of his restaurant,” concluded Cohen, who last year pranked numerous political figures with his satirical Showtime series “Who Is America?” and most recently portrayed real-life Mossad agent Eli Cohen in Netflix’s thriller “The Spy.”

Zuckerberg’s address also drew criticism from Bernice King, the daughter of the late civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. Zuckerberg in his speech alluded to the role of freedom of expression in the civil rights movement.

“I’d like to help Facebook better understand the challenges #MLK faced from disinformation campaigns launched by politicians,” King replied, a reference to Facebook’s refusal to block ads featuring false statements from politicians. “These campaigns created an atmosphere for his assassination,” she added.

Big post-debate cash hauls for Buttigieg, Klobuchar could spell trouble for Biden

Westlake Legal Group AmyKlobuchar-Concord-Oct.2019 Big post-debate cash hauls for Buttigieg, Klobuchar could spell trouble for Biden Paul Steinhauser fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-debate fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/amy-klobuchar fox news fnc/politics fnc b2630e59-25ca-5c28-b64b-87b82fa60d41 article

CONCORD, N.H. – Sen. Amy Klobuchar – giddy after a lack of sleep and rave reviews for her debate performance – touted to the jam-packed crowd inside a café in New Hampshire’s capital city that she raised $1.1 million in the 24 hours after Tuesday’s Democratic presidential nomination showdown.

The haul was nearly a quarter of what she brought in during the entire July-September third quarter of fundraising.

BUTTIGIEG, KLOUCHAR SLAM WARREN FOR NOT SAYING HOW SHE’LL PAY FOR MEDICARE-FOR-ALL

Highlighting that most of the money was from small-dollar contributions, the Minnesota Democrat told reporters “that shows something happened, that people were watching and they responded. And that is a very big deal for us.”

As Klobuchar spotlighted her post-debate haul, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who also excelled during the showdown, reported bringing in $1.1 million in the same 24-hours following the debate.

His campaign touted that Wednesday was “one of our biggest fundraising days yet.” And Buttigieg communications director Lis Smith showcased that the campaign “saw more traffic to their website in the past 24 hours than any other day.”

At the debate, both Buttigieg and Klobuchar took aim at co-front runner Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts over how she’d pay for her proposed government-run Medicare-for-all plan.

The aggressive moves throughout the debate by both Buttigieg and Klobuchar literally paid off. And the potential surge for the two candidates trying to appeal to more centrist voters in the party could spell trouble for another more establishment contender: former Vice President Joe Biden.

AMID BIDEN’S CAMPAIGN CASH WOES, TOP ADVISERS VOW THEY HAVE ENOUGH MONEY

Biden was the unrivaled front-runner in the race from even before he declared his candidacy in late April. But Warren caught up with him this autumn in many of the most recent national and early voting state polls. And Biden’s been eclipsed by Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Buttigieg when it comes to the crucial fundraising race.

According to his Federal Election Commission filing, Biden had just under $9 million in his campaign coffers after spending more money than he raised the past three months. That’s far less than Sanders, Warren, and even Buttigieg.

“This week’s debate was the best yet for Mayor Pete and Sen. Klobuchar and came at a moment of prime opportunity for them,” noted Ben LaBolt, a Democratic strategist who served as a spokesman on Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign and national press secretary on the president’s 2012 re-election campaign.

LaBolt spotlighted that “Biden’s vote share is more gettable for pragmatic candidates like Buttigieg and Klobuchar than it is for Warren. The challenge now is to present a vision that shows what they could achieve in office versus a more systemically disruptive vision from Sen. Warren. The clock is ticking in Iowa and New Hampshire for that message to reach the remaining persuadable voters.”

Klobuchar, on frenetic post-debate swing through all 10 counties in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state, appears to get it.

She called her performance in this week’s debate “critical.” And with just three and a half months to go until the primaries and caucuses kick off, she emphasized “this is when the campaign season begins.”

Milky Way galaxy is a cosmic thief

Even Frank Abagnale, Jr. would be envious of this thievery.

A newly published study notes that the Milky Way stole several dwarf galaxies from the neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) galaxy, including the Carina and Fornax, as part of a merger between the two that is still ongoing.

The LMC is approximately 158,200 light-years from Earth and contains roughly 30 billion stars.

The research is based on new data coming from the Gaia space telescope and found that “at least four ultrafaint dwarfs and two classical dwarfs” used to be part of the LMC, according to a statement announcing the findings.

MILK WAY GALAXY’S CENTER EXPLODED 3.5M YEARS AGO

“These results are an important confirmation of our cosmological models, which predict that small dwarf galaxies in the universe should also be surrounded by a population of smaller fainter galaxy companions,” said one of the study’s co-authors, Laura Sales, in the statement. “This is the first time that we are able to map the hierarchy of structure formation to such faint and ultrafaint dwarfs.”

The cosmic swipes happened in the recent past, cosmically speaking, approximately 1 billion years ago. By comparison, the entire universe is widely accepted to be 13.8 billion years old.

“If so many dwarfs came along with the LMC only recently, that means the properties of the Milky Way satellite population just 1 billion years ago were radically different, impacting our understanding of how the faintest galaxies form and evolve,” Sales added.

Unlike spiral galaxies, like our own Milky Way, dwarf galaxies are small and only have a small number of stars, ranging from a few thousand to a few billion. The Milky Way is estimated to contain anywhere between 100 billion and 400 billion stars.

COMETS AND ASTEROIDS COULD BE FLINGING LIFE ALL OVER THE GALAXY, STUDY FINDS

The LMC and other galaxies like it host a great number of dwarf galaxies, many of which only contain dark matter, making them interesting to astronomers.

“The high number of tiny dwarf galaxies seems to suggest the dark matter content of the LMC is quite large, meaning the Milky Way is undergoing the most massive merger in its history, with the LMC, its partner, bringing in as much as one third of the mass in the Milky Way’s dark matter halo — the halo of invisible material that surrounds our galaxy,” said the study’s lead author, Ethan Jahn, in the statement.

Jahn added that it’s hard to know how many dwarf galaxies are hosted by the LMC (at least 7) and more may be discovered with further research.

“Small galaxies are hard to measure, and it’s possible that some already-known ultrafaint dwarf galaxies are in fact associated with the LMC,” he continued. “It’s also possible that we will discover new ultrafaints that are associated with the LMC.”

The study has been published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

350-lb Luchese mobster plotted crash diet to escape through prison window: officials

“The Shawshank Redemption” has nothing on this tubby Luchese mobster.

Christopher Londonio’s 2017 plan to escape the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn called for enlisting a wide array of characters, including his mother, his father, his estranged wife, a bookie from the Bronx and a priest, based on a just-unsealed FBI report.

It needed bedsheets, braided dental floss, a hacksaw blade, a safe house in Brooklyn and a hideout in Monticello.

And then there was the toughest goal of all: a crash diet-exercise regimen to ensure that the 350-pound mobster could squeeze through the prison’s window.

According to the November 2017 FBI report, the wiseguy allegedly figured he had “nothing to lose” by trying to escape from the MDC because at the time he was facing the death penalty for the 2013 murder of gangster Michael Meldish.

MAFIA KILLING IS FIRST NEW YORK MOB BOSS HIT EVER RECOVERED ON VIDEO: REPORT

Londonio confided in another inmate, bank robber David Evangelista, after learning he also faced heavy time for a previous escape attempt.

He told Evangelista that he had used a razor to “cut the caulking around” an MDC window and had used “braided dental floss” to begin “perforating the glass.” He also showed Evangelista a box “filled with bed sheets” that he had been storing under his bed to lower himself down to the street from his eighth-floor cell.

Londonio said that he had asked the prison chaplain to allow his local priest to visit him.

The priest’s mission was to smuggle “a diamond-tipped hacksaw blade” into the MDC that Londonio could use “to cut through the steel window guards” of his cell.

The report also detailed Londonio’s diet efforts.

“A central element of Londonio’s plan involved losing enough weight to insure he fit through the opened window,” wrote agents Theodore Otto and Christopher Munger.

Can our friends trust the US as an ally? Most Americans say Trump’s Syria move has hurt

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close Can our friends trust the US as an ally? Most Americans say Trump's Syria move has hurt

President Trump said Syria has “got a lot of sand” while talking about Turkey’s invasion of the country. USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — Most Americans believe that President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from the Syrian border has damaged America’s reputation around the world as a reliable ally, a new USA TODAY/Ipsos Poll finds. 

Even Republicans, typically in Trump’s corner, by 44%-36% say the nation’s reputation has been hurt.

Many of those surveyed express uncertainty about what to think; only half say they are very or somewhat familiar with rapidly changing developments in the region. The abrupt U.S. withdrawal opened the door to a Turkish military assault on the Kurds, who had been aligned with U.S. forces against ISIS. The White House announced Thursday that Turkey had agreed to a five-day ceasefire to allow Kurds to withdraw from the area.

Overall, a 37% plurality of Americans calls the president’s decision to withdraw the small contingent of U.S. troops wrong because it upset stability in a dangerous region; 27% say it was right because the United States has too many military commitments around the world. More than one in four Republicans see the decision as wrong.

Turkey cease-fire: Mike Pence announces that Turkey agreed to a five-day cease-fire in its Syria assault

Opposition swells among those who are more familiar with what’s happening in the region. By nearly 2-1, 58%-30%, they say the president made the wrong call.

“The decision to remove troops from northern Syria has not proven to be popular with the American public,” said Cliff Young, the president of Ipsos. “While Americans remain divided on most topics, there is some surprising unanimity here, especially among people more familiar with the decision.”

Overall, 54% say the withdrawal has damaged the nation’s standing as a trusted ally. 

The decision has put Trump at odds not only with some GOP voters but also with GOP lawmakers. In the House Wednesday, more than two-thirds of Republicans joined every Democrat in passing a resolution that condemned the withdrawal as a step that endangered the Kurds and benefited Russia, Syria and Iran.

In the USA TODAY/Ipsos poll, Americans by more than 3-1, 61%-19%, say the nation has an obligation to protect the Kurds, who have been U.S. allies in battles in Syria and Iraq. That sentiment crosses party lines, including 72% of Democrats and 60% of Republicans.

And there is bipartisan concern that the ISIS fighters who have escaped Kurdish prisons in the chaos are likely to pose a terrorist threat down the road: 54% predict they will be a threat in the region, 44% say they will be a threat in the United States. 

Trump did get credit from two-thirds of Republicans for delivering on his campaign promise to “end endless wars.” By 57%-26%, Republicans say they back his Syria policy, despite concerns about its consequences.

Overall, however, just 31% of those surveyed say they support the president’s policy on Syria.

The online poll of 1,006 adults, taken Wednesday and Thursday, has a credibility interval of 3.5 percentage points.

Hackers are draining ATMs across the US

Westlake Legal Group komandokomandokomandopic3 Hackers are draining ATMs across the US fox-news/tech/topics/hackers fox news fnc/tech fnc Brooke Crothers article 1cfdf119-de23-5424-944a-9e4f8eb1b46f

ATM hackers may have found a new home in the U.S., according to a recent report.

The number of so-called “jackpotting” attacks – getting ATMs to spit out all of the cash inside – in regions including the U.S. and Latin America has gone up, according to a joint investigation by Motherboard and German broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk. Large-scale ATM cash-out hacking had mostly been an overseas criminal enterprise.

The U.S. is a “quite popular” target for ATM hackers, a source told Motherboard. These types of cash-out crimes have been around for a while, as noted in a report from Trend Micro, a cybersecurity firm.

‘CIA SEXTORTION’ EMAIL SCAM MAKES ITS DEBUT

In 2013, a cybergang stole $45 million from ATMs around the world, the BBC reported. More than $12 million were taken from cashpoints in Japan using cloned ATM cards in 2016. The notorious Carbanak gang has stolen as much as $1 billion from banks around the world, including schemes that cash out ATMs.

Last year, hackers broke into computers at an Indian bank and walked off with $11.5 million in unauthorized ATM withdrawals — an incident that happened after the FBI issued a warning about the imminent scheme.

Krebs on Security, a cybersecurity publication, described how it works. “Just prior to executing on ATM cash-outs, the intruders will remove many fraud controls at the financial institution, such as maximum withdrawal amounts and any limits on the number of customer ATM transactions daily.”

With jackpotting, criminals use malware or hardware to get an ATM to dispense cash — sometimes into the hands of waiting “mules,” according to Trend Micro’s report. “ATM attacks continue to reap financial rewards for their perpetrators, which means we should not expect them to let up.”

A major weak point is that many ATMs are essentially ancient Windows machines, with a source telling Motherboard “these are very old, slow machines.”

Patrick Mahomes injury draws unsettling reactions from Chiefs teammates: ‘It looked deformed’

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was among those who appeared to be left unsettled after his teammate and reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes reportedly dislocated his kneecap during Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.

Mahomes suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Chiefs’ 30-6 blowout of the Broncos. Video appeared to show the team’s medical staff popping his dislocated kneecap back into place.

PATRICK MAHOMES APPEARS TO HAVE KNEECAP POPPED BACK IN PLACE AFTER INJURY IN CHIEFS-BRONCOS GAME

Kelce was asked about the injury after the game.

“His knee didn’t even look like a knee. It was all out of whack,” he said, according to ESPN.

Chiefs offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif relayed to reporters what Mahomes was saying when he went down.

“He was saying, ‘It’s out, it’s out,’” Duvernay-Tardif said. “Nobody really understood what he meant at that time and then we saw it. That’s when we started panicking.”

Adam Reiter, the team’s center, had Mahomes on top of him during the play.

“I think I was just yelling, ‘Get off me,’ but I didn’t realize it was him,” Reiter said. “And everybody’s telling me, I’m hearing from the refs, ‘Just stay still, stay still.’ And I’m just laying on my stomach face down. I just had to listen to the refs and not move. As soon as I realized it was his voice, I was like, all right, I’m not moving an inch.”

According to the Kansas City Star, Tyreek Hill screamed into the air and took off his helmet in frustration while Demarcus Robinson had to get away from the scene as quickly as possible.

“It looked deformed,” Robinson said, according to the Star.

Mahomes is expected to miss at least three weeks with a dislocated kneecap, the NFL Network reported Friday. There is reportedly “real optimism” he will be able to play after those three weeks. He is set to undergo an MRI at some point on Friday.

It’s unclear what the Chiefs will do at quarterback at this point. Veteran Matt Moore is the team’s backup.

Mahomes let fans know he remained optimistic after the injury.
