    Roger Stone actively worked to get Julian Assange a pardon, text messages reveal.

    Longtime Trump aide and Republican operative Roger Stone actively worked to get WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange a “blanket pardon,” according to text messages obtained by Mother Jones.

    A text message Stone sent to his ally Randy Credico, who is a New York-based comedian and left-leaning political activist, saw Stone admit that he had been working on a pardon for Assange. Credico is the same man who Stone has named as his backchannel mediator with WikiLeaks, but Credico denies the claims.

    “I am working with others to get JA a blanket pardon,” Stone texted Credico this January. “It’s very real and very possible. Don’t f**k it up.”

    “Something very big about to go down.”

    garbage dump

    Everyone knows that crime is a nasty business. But those living in the State of New Jersey have learned the hard way that crime also stinks. For most of a year, someone has been taking a dump on New Jersey roads in the form of loaded diapers. Local police finally sniffed him out as reported by Fox News.

    “William Friedman, 68, was spotted in a box truck dropping a load of soiled diapers on the road near Routes 47 and 40 in Gloucester County around 3:15 a.m. Sunday, Franklin Township Police said.

    At least three times a week, Friedman would dump the diapers in one area before changing locations and times, making it difficult for officers to catch the suspect, police told Southern New Jersey’s Vineland Daily Journal.”

    Sarah Sanders defends Donald Trump's response to suspicious packages to media figures.

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders embraced an odd line of defense to justify Donald Trump’s response to the spate of mail bombs sent to Democrats this week. According to Politico’s Twitter account, while speaking to reporters, Sanders said that the president shouldn’t be blamed for the attacks any more than Bernie Sanders was blamed when a self-confessed supporter, James T. Hodgkinson, shot a congressional staffer and members of the congressional police force in Virginia last year, as CNN reports.

    Sanders said that Trump was “not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone, no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice.”

    a shooting at a kentucky kroger has left two dead

    A deadly shooting at a Louisville Kroger grocery store may have been racially motivated, with a white man allegedly murdering two African-American people and talking about race while exchanging gunfire with a bystander.

    As WOIO-TV (Cleveland) reports, on Wednesday afternoon a gunman walked into a busy Kroger on Louisville’s east side and shot several times at an African-American man. The shooter then exited the store and fired shots at an African-American woman. Both victims died at the scene.

    At some point during this crime, a bystander exchanged gunfire with the alleged gunman, later identified as 51-year-old Gregory Alan Bush, who is white. During the exchange, Bush allegedly mentioned race.

    “Whites don’t kill whites.”

    Bush fled the scene, but only managed to get a few blocks before he was apprehended and placed into custody by police.

    bodies washed up on the hudson river

    The bodies of two women who were stuck together by duct tape washed ashore on the Hudson River, and police are trying to piece together who the women were and how they died.

    As The Metro reports, a passerby in Riverside Park noticed the bodies lying on the rocks and alerted police. He has been identified by Radar Online as 40-year-old Martin Castillo, who was riding his bike through the park when he made the grisly discovery.

    “The bodies were on stones. One of them was facing up. She was a woman. I couldn’t believe it. I can’t see how this happened.”

    Authorities believe that they were brought in by the tide and then left there as the waters receded. The bodies show no signs of trauma, and as of this writing, it is unclear if foul play is suspected.

    A large blue octopus sits on the floor of a giant tank on display at an aquarium.

    Marine biologists have just made one of the most adorable discoveries as they were working in Hawaii.

    While studying Hawaii’s coral reefs, scientists with Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Park on the Big Island noticed two rust-orange colored critters with eight tentacles floating on plastic debris. Upon closer inspection, Fox News reported that they discovered the creatures to be miniature versions of octopuses.

    “During a surface break from coral reef monitoring our Marine Biologists noticed something small when they picked up several items of floating plastic marine debris. This beautiful little octopus was found among the debris,” the park posted on Facebook at the time of the discovery in August.

    Andy Rubin sitting in a chair on a stage, speaking with 'Wired.'

    Google has protected three executives at the company who were accused of sexual misconduct over the past decade, according to an explosive new report from the New York Times. Andy Rubin, who left the company in October of 2014, and two other executives had claims of sexual misconduct brought against them. Instead of taking a hard stance against the individuals, Google protected them and — in two instances — gave the executives generous compensation packages.

    When Andy Rubin left Google, then-CEO Larry Page gave the Android mobile software creator a warm send-off.

    “I want to wish Andy all the best with what’s next. With Android he created something truly remarkable — with a billion-plus happy users,” Page said.

    Prior to his departure, Rubin was accused by an employee of having coerced her into performing oral sex on him. The two were having an extramarital relationship at the time, and Google was made aware of — and investigated — the claim. Rubin was asked to resign.

    LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 20: Michael Avenatti attends Politicon 2018 at Los Angeles Convention Center on October 20, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Phillip Faraone/Getty Images for Politicon)

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) made waves Thursday when he asked the Department of Justice to investigate both Julie Swetnick and her attorney Michael Avenatti for allegedly false statements made during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

    Swetnick came forward shortly after Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to report that she, too, witnessed inappropriate sexual conduct from Kavanaugh many years ago. Swetnick was not included in the brief FBI probe into Kavanaugh, which was ignited after Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford says that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 1980s, while both were attending a party.

    The FBI probe into Ford’s claims lasted less than a week. Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court in a 50-48 Senate vote just days after the FBI report was completed. This report was not made available to the public, and has since been locked in a vault.

    The Time Warner Center in New York City.

    The Time Warner Center, the building where CNN headquarters in New York City is located, was partially evacuated for a second time this week, after a pair of unattended packages sparked fears inside the building. Police soon after gave the “all clear” for patrons to re-enter the building, however, after it was deemed that there wasn’t any danger surrounding those packages.

    According to the Twitter account of MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin, there was another suspicious package discovered in the building.

    “CNN is reporting that the NYPD is responding to reports of a suspicious package in the Time Warner Center where CNN is located,” Griffin tweeted.

    CBS News also tweeted out that the building is being evacuated.

    “The Time Warner Center in New York City, where CNN offices are located, is being evacuated, one day after a mail bomb was sent to the network’s offices, reports say,” the news network said. “It is not known if the incidents are related.”

    Teenage Mom Jenna Folwell Googled Ways To Kill A Baby 100 Times Before Drowning Her 4-Week-Old Son, Police Say

    Jenna Folwell, 19, was arrested on Thursday after she reported that her 4-week-old infant son was abducted from a park in Chandler, Arizona — but the baby was found dead and Folwell confessed to killing him, according to a report by Phoenix TV station KPNX.

    Folwell initially told police that she was placing the infant in a car seat when an unknown person appeared from behind her and blinded her by pulling a bag over her head. The unknown person then abducted the baby, named Rainer, according to the story Folwell told the investigating officers, KPNX reported. Police then searched the area, but when they got to Folwell’s own apartment they made a grim discovery — the body of little Rainer, sealed inside a black duffel bag.

    Donald Trump holds an LGBT rainbow flag given to him by a supporter.

    The Inquisitr has earlier reported that President Donald Trump’s administration considers restricting the definition of gender so it would be based on the individual’s genitalia at birth.

    The idea drew flak from critics particularly from the LGBTQ groups, which announced protests and rallies in response to the proposal.

    Now, reports emerge that the American mission to the United Nations also attempts to remove the word “gender” from human rights documents of the United Nations.

    US diplomats are reportedly lobbying to change the word “gender” to “woman” in a move that some consider as an attack to the transgender and gender-nonconforming people.

    The Guardian reported that at a recent meeting of the UN’s Third Committee, which tackles agenda related to social and humanitarian affairs as well as human rights issues, US officials have been seeking for a rewrite of the general assembly policy statements.

    Taft Point cliff in Yosemite at sunset

    Two people died on Thursday after plunging from a popular overlook spot in California’s Yosemite National Park. A couple was at the park’s Taft Point when they apparently fell from the 7,500-foot high spot, according to the New York Post. The deaths are the ninth and 10th fatalities in the park this year.

    “A male and female visitor died in an apparent fall from Taft Point in Yosemite National Park. Yosemite National Park Rangers are recovering the bodies this morning,” a release from park rangers said. “This incident is under investigation and no further details are available.”

    The incident comes just a week after a photographer snapped a photo of an engagement in the same location, which went viral on social media. Taft Point is a popular overlook, with views of Yosemite Falls and El Capitan. It is also a common place for selfies and photo opportunities. Hikers can reach the granite ledge with a one-mile hike from Glacier Point Road.

    Trump Jr. Likes Tweet Promoting 'Fake Bombs' Conspiracy Theory

    Donald Trump Jr. liked a Twitter message promoting a far-right conspiracy theory pertaining to bombs sent to President Trump’s critics and opponents, The Daily Beast reports.

    “Breaking: White Powder in bombs not biological or dangerous. Likely baby powder,” the tweet accompanied by a Fox News video says. “#FakeBombHoax #VoteRed.”

    Far-right Twitter users are theorizing that bombs sent to George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Maxine Waters, CNN, and Robert De Niro — all of whom are either President Trump’s fierce critics, political opponents, or both — were so-called “false flags,” covert operations designed to produce sympathy among the American public, and tip the scales in the favor of the Democratic Party in the upcoming midterm elections.

    According to the New York Times, some prominent right-wing media figures have picked up on the conspiracy theory, spreading it to their followers.

    Mail bomber could be traced back to Florida

    The world woke to fear on Wednesday and Thursday as more than a half-dozen explosive devices were mailed to some of the country’s most famous citizens. Suspicious packages arrived at various locations in the U.S. addressed to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Maxine Waters on Wednesday, among others, while Joe Biden and Robert De Niro were targeted on Thursday.

    CNN’s newsroom was evacuated live on air when a package containing a pipe bomb arrived at the building where they broadcast. The FBI is carefully investigating each and every package. The devices have already been sent to Quantico, Virginia, for further study and testing.

    Now, CNN reports that investigators have a lead on the suspect who sent these devices: many of the packages seem to have originated in Florida. Federal investigators are already in the state, and are presumably on the trail of the person or persons who sent the packages.

    Autumn leaves

    The eastern United States draws many people both near and far every autumn season. Leaf peepers come just to catch a look at the vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds that make up fall foliage. This year, it seems that many parts of the United States are lacking their usual colorful array. Accu Weather recently reported on the reason behind this mostly green season that’s happening further south of northern New England and the Great Lakes states.

    Dr. Mark Abrams, a professor of ecosystem science and management at Penn State University, recently spoke out about what’s up with this unusual autumn. This summer and fall were and are very wet in the region, says Abrams. Not to mention the region has also gone through a bout of rather unseasonably high temperatures that have followed all the way into October for many areas.

    President Donald Trump

    Donald Trump spent $10,000 on a portrait of himself at an auction in 2014 because no one else wanted it, lawyers claimed in a Manhattan court on Thursday.

    As the New York Post reports, this painting debacle is part of a lawsuit that’s been brought against Donald Trump by New York’s state attorney general for misappropriation of charity money.

    According to the article, Trump wanted to get the bidding started so he offered up the $10,000. But things didn’t go as planned. No one else at the event bid on the painting so he ended up having the foot the bill.

    Except that he didn’t exactly foot the bill, prosecutors say. They claim that Trump billed the Donald J. Trump Foundation for the unpopular painting. So, even he didn’t want to pay for it himself.

    But the allegations of dodgy “charity” spending go further than an unwanted piece of art.

    Cat

    Red Orbit recently reported on hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid in cats, a health concern which many pet owners may not be aware of. This condition often occurs in humans, but the bad news for felines is that they too can suffer a troublesome thyroid. Fortunately for these furry friends, hypothyroidism is rare for their species. They are also lucky due to the condition being transitory, or short term, which does not necessarily need any sort of intensive treatment.

    Most people are aware that thyroid hormones regulate metabolism, heart rate, and body temperature. The thyroid gland and the hormones it produces are essential for a healthy, properly functioning being. In cats, problems with underactive thyroid tend to occur following any sort of treatment for an overactive thyroid.

    Tyler the Creator Survives Car Accident

    All it takes is dozing off for a few seconds behind the wheel to find yourself in a very dangerous situation. According to People, Tyler the Creator is considering himself lucky after making it out of a near-fatal car crash alive. The accident occurred when the exhausted rapper briefly fell asleep while driving Wednesday night.

    Tyler has been hard at work lately completing music for the new film, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, coming out November 9. He will be featured on several vocals from the movie’s soundtrack and is also contributing to the production. According to Tyler, it was due to long hours spent on the film that he found himself in what could have quite easily been a far worse situation.

    Camila has a new ad campaign.

    Leonardo Di Caprio’s girlfriend, Camila Morrone, sent her Instagram fans into a frenzy when she shared a sneak peek at her new ad campaign for Jordache denim. In the photo, the model posed in a denim bikini top, jeans, and matching jacket. Camila wore her hair down, as she bit down on her left hand as she wore leather gloves with fringe. Fans let her know that she looked “gorgeous,” “stunning,” and “beautiful.”

    Camila also shared another photo from the photoshoot, this time flaunting her derriere in some light denim as she leaned on a wooden fence. Plus, other shots included one of her sporting a patterned bikini, which she modeled with a cowboy hat, according to the Daily Mail.

    Back in mid-December, DiCaprio was seen leaving her house, which was the first time the two were believed to be together. Since then, their relationship has been on full display, as they attended high-profile events together and even vacationed together.

    Church Fire Destroys Everything but one Painting

    On Tuesday, a devastating fire consumed First Baptist Church in Wakefield, Massachusetts. The beloved building was 150-years-old and will be deeply missed by the community. It is believed that it was a lightning strike in a powerful storm that caused the church to go down in flames. While church members mourn the loss of the building, they are finding comfort in one object that did survive the destruction.

    According to USA Today, a painting of Jesus was somehow left unscathed. To the surprise of church members, neither the fire or even the water used to extinguish the flames was enough to damage the piece of art. The painting depicts Christ crucified, with his arms outstretched. Church members are taking this as a sign that even though their physical place of worship is gone, God is still present in their lives.
