A sexual assault suspect who is included in FBI’s list of 10 Most Wanted Fugitives was spotted in South Carolina.
Carlson was accused of sexually assaulting a woman and striking her head with a gun during a burglary that occurred on July 13, 2017, in West Los Angeles. He was arrested by Los Angeles police two months later.
He was charged with burglary, assault with intent to commit rape, and assault with a deadly weapon, but was released on bond.
He then traveled to Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, where he has ties. The FBI, however, said that he likely left the state with a large amount of cash, a stolen handgun, and a rental car.
In the latest news that doesn’t sound a lot like news, Facebook has been hacked and your private messages have been exposed. Adding insult to injury, your private messages are being sold on the black market for 10¢ per account. The Verge offers the following details.
“The breach was first discovered in September after one of the hackers advertised the stolen data on a forum. The message details were obtained after users downloaded a malicious browser extension that then scraped the information from their accounts. The hackers then sold access to the information for 10 cents per account. The group told BBC that their ‘database includes 120 million accounts,’ but that number could not be confirmed by outside cybersecurity experts.”
At this time, there is no way to tell if your account was one of those that were stolen. Most of the stolen accounts were from Ukraine and Russia. But some are known to be from the US, UK, and other parts of the world.
Elon Musk was forced to defend his decision to join President Donald Trump’s economic advisory council during an interview on the Recode Decode podcast with Kara Swisher. Musk argued that he took his opportunity to push for legislation regarding climate change, saying that the fight was “still worth trying” and “I did my absolute best,” according to reports from Business Insider.
While Musk made it clear that his intentions were good, he did acknowledge that Trump didn’t give him a proper chance on the council.
Swisher said to Musk, “I said you shouldn’t go ’cause he was gonna screw you, remember?”
Musk replied, “Well, you were right.”
Could 16- and 17-year-olds vote in the next presidential election? Should they be able to do so? Those are the questions that are set to be put before the Washington D.C. City Council later this month.
A committee discussing the subject approved a resolution that would allow all D.C. residents, ages 16 and older, to vote in elections. It would not limit voting for these enfranchised constituents to local elections either: individuals who are 16 or 17 would be able to vote, just the same as everyone else, in the election for president, according to reporting from ABC News.
Would that be legal? The U.S. Constitution leaves the decision for how to regulate who can vote up to the states. The 26th Amendment does stipulate that states “shall not” deny the right to vote to individuals who are over the age of 18, according to a reading of the document at the Constitution Center online.
Comedian and actress Ilana Glazer, best known as star of the Comedy Central series Broad City, was scheduled to host a political candidate’s discussion on Thursday at a synagogue in Brooklyn, New York. But just two hours before the event, anti-Semitic graffiti was discovered scrawled on doors and in locations throughout the temple, according to the New York Times, leading Glazer to cancel the discussion.
Among the slogans written in black felt marker, theNew York Post reported, was the phrase “Kill all Jews!”
The New York Daily News also reported that the graffiti included the phrases, “Die Jew rats, we are here!,” “Hitler,” and “Jews better be ready!”
The anti-Semitic graffiti was discovered just five days after a gunman in Pittsburgh, reportedly shouting “All Jews must die,” entered a synagogue during Saturday morning prayer services and killed 11 worshippers, as the Inquisitr has reported.
The View has added a new co-host to the Hot Topics table, shaking up the panel with the addition of a popular and controversial commentator, who was originally slated to take the spot now occupied by Abby Huntsman.
Variety has reported that the series has added Republican strategist Ana Navarro as a guest co-host one day a week.
The show has always had one guest co-host for Fridays, to keep the panel at five when Whoopi Goldberg is out as the moderator for the last live show of the week. The last person to fill that seat was former GMA Weekend anchor Paula Faris, who departed the series this past summer.
Navarro will fill in on The View every Friday, rounding out the Season 22 panel of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, Sunny Hostin, and Abby Huntsman.
Variety reported that Navarro had been in talks to join the series as a full-time co-host in the fall.
A Tennessee death row inmate flashed a smile and waved goodbye before saying “let’s rock” after being asked by the warden if he had any last words — minutes before he was executed in the electric chair on Thursday, the National Post reported.
Edmund Zagorski, 63, became Tennessee’s first man to be executed by the electric chair since 2007. He was sentenced to death for shooting two men and slitting their throats during a drug deal that took place in April of 1983. Tennessee jurists did not have the option of considering life without parole at the time of his conviction.
The National Post reported that Zagorski’s execution was witnessed by five members of the media, as well as his attorney, the prison’s chaplain, and a representative from the attorney general’s office.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette shared the first line from the Mourners’ Prayer, the Kaddish, on the front page of the paper in Hebrew. The transliteration is “Yitgedal viyitkadash Schmei rabbah,” which means “Magnified and sanctified by Your name.”
The Hill is reporting that the Pittsburgh paper shared this line from the prayer traditionally said for the dead to honor the 11 people who were gunned down Sunday at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood.
Tonight is the start of the first Sabbath or Shabbat since the violent shooting that has rocked the country, and even though the Tree of Life Synagogue is still a crime scene, and so services cannot be held there, prayers are going out across Pittsburgh and the world for the families of those who were injured and killed by a lone gunman who stormed the sanctuary.
President Donald Trump has signaled new sanctions that his administration will be implemented against Iran by posting an image the parodied the popular television show Game of Thrones, according to reports from the Business Insider.
Trump took to Twitter and posted a photo of himself emblazoned with the phrase “Sanctions are Coming, November 5,” using the same font used on the show. The phrase used is a play on the term “Winter is Coming,” one of the show’s most popular catchphrases.
November 5 marks the day that the United States will re-impose the sanctions that were placed on Iran before 2015, when those sanctions were lifted after the signing of the Iran nuclear deal. The coming sanctions will affect Iran’s shipping, financial, and energy sectors.
Donald Trump Jr. wasted little time going after Alec Baldwin after the actor’s reported arrest in New York City.
Baldwin was taken into police custody on Friday afternoon in New York City after allegedly punching a man in the face in a dispute over a parking spot. Within minutes of the report coming out, the eldest son of President Donald Trump weighed in on Twitter, calling Baldwin a “piece of garbage.”
“Is anyone shocked at this piece of garbage anymore? As if the phone calls to his daughter weren’t bad enough,” wrote Trump Jr.
“He’s a lib so he gets chance after chance to be decent but always fails!”
The dispute reportedly took place near Baldwin’s home on East 10th Street in Manhattan’s East Village. As ABC News reported, Baldwin was taken into police custody over the fight and expected to be charged with assault.
On Friday, November 2, the Nigerian Army shared a tweet containing a video of Donald Trump recommending that American troops should open fire on migrants that throw rocks at them. The impetus behind the sharing of Trump’s video was suggested to be a means of justification for the Nigerian Army’s actions in killing Shia protesters earlier in the week, according to reports fromBusiness Insider.
On Monday, the Nigerian army fired upon a group of about 1000 Shia protesters, leaving 40 dead, according to reports from Amnesty International and witnesses from the protest. Nigeria’s military has long come under fire for its human rights abuses, but continues to be a partner with the United States. Nigeria regularly purchases warplanes and other military equipment from the U.S.
It seems that being a good boy goes a long way, and will get you off the hook even when you accidentally get into trouble.
This was recently the case for Charlie, a 120-pound Rottweiler-mix that ended up inadvertently injuring his owner — and quite severely, at that — during a hunting trip in the New Mexico desert.
Charlie is one of the three dogs with whom 74-year-old Tex Harold Gilligan shares his life. The man lives in Doña Ana County, and last week drove his canine companions into the desert west of Las Cruces to hunt for jackrabbits.
While the trip started innocently enough, Gilligan ended up getting gunned down in a bizarre accident that boggles the mind and defies imagination. The man wound up at an El Paso hospital after his dog shot him with the very same shotgun that was meant for the jackrabbits.
A college freshman lost her life when she fell from the top floor of an apartment building in Minneapolis during a Halloween party. The New York Post reports that Joia Simpson, 19, a student at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota, fell over two side-by-side railings on the morning of November 1. She died at the scene.
According to the Star Tribune, police are still investigating the circumstances of Simpson’s death. The police report states that they have questioned “at least” seven other partygoers, who are between the ages of 18 and 20. This is the second death of a University of St. Thomas student in as many weeks, as another student was found dead in her dorm room two weeks ago.
The school’s chaplain, Rev. Larry Blake, said that Simpson’s friends and fellow students were emotionally ravaged by the news of her death.
“This is a difficult time for them,” Blake said. “They are devastated.”
During a Reddit“ask me anything” session today, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders addressed the burning issue of US relationship with Saudi Arabia, urging the Trump administration to get out of Yemen.
The Yemen war is “an unbelievable and horrific humanitarian disaster,” Senator Sanders said, adding that the war is also unconstitutional “because Congress, which has the war-making authority in our form of government, has not authorized it.”
“We should not be allied with a dictatorship like Saudi Arabia who is leading the effort in that war. Let’s get out of Yemen as soon as possible and help bring humanitarian help to that struggling country.”
In March this year, as Vox reported, along with Republican Senator from Utah Mike Lee and Democratic Senator from Connecticut Chris Murphy, Bernie Sanders introduced the resolution to stop American support for Saudi forces in Yemen.
The GOP-controlled Senate, however, voted to kill the initiative.
At least four people are injured and one is dead after a gunman opened fire inside of a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, heading into the weekend. The status of the victims who were wounded in the incident is still unclear, but what is known is that the suspect turned the weapon on himself after pulling the trigger.
USA Today reports that at some point after 5:30 p.m. a hysterical woman barged into The Bar at Betton to alert employees and patrons that a shooting had taken place inside of the yoga studio that operates on the second floor of the 1950 Thomasville Road location. Witnesses noticed that she was followed by a man who had blood coming out of his head, and a couple of other traumatized locals. The Tallahassee police tweeted out a warning for residents and employees in the area to avoid the vicinity just after 6 p.m.
Robert Bowers appeared in court on Thursday to plead not guilty to multiple criminal counts, as well as 11 counts of murder. Bowers allegedly entered a Pittsburgh synagogue on October 27 screaming about Jews, and began shooting as many of the worshippers that he could.
Bowers, 46, is facing the death penalty for his alleged crimes. Today he is known nationwide as a hate-monger and a killer, but before last Saturday very few people knew Bowers, the Washington Post reports.
Bowers began life without much of a stable home, if marriage and divorce records are any indication. His mother was married to a man named Randall G. Bowers when he was born in August of 1973, but the pair were divorced about a year later.
His mother, Barbara, remarried a man named Robert Saiter while Robert Bowers was still a toddler, around 3- or 4-years-old. But these two were together for less than a year before they decided to call it quits.
Jacob Wohl’s bad week may have just gotten even worse with allegations that his fake private investigation firm accepted $1,200 from a formerly homeless woman to find a stolen car, then broke all contact with her.
Wohl went from right-wing Twitter troll to national figure this week after floating bizarre sexual assault allegations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Even before Wohl came forward, several reporters noted that they had been contacted by a woman claiming she was offered money to make false allegations against Mueller. Later in the week, Wohl and Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman held a press conference where the woman they said would be making the allegation never showed up and their story fell apart under questioning from reporters.
Twitter accounts known for pushing Kremlin disinformation campaigns are also helping make Blexit trend, a Daily Beast investigation reveals.
Started by right-wing internet personality Candace Owens, Blexit – an internet movement urging blacks to abandon the Democratic Party – has reached almost viral proportions, but as it turns out at least 16 percent of Blexit tweets have been published by accounts known for pushing Kremlin fake news in the past.
What seems to be a disinformation campaign is not only being promoted by Owens but also by other right-wing Twitter personalities.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kanye West was thought to be part of the campaign, until he denied participating in it via Twitter, accusing Owens of using his name to push for Blexit, even though the rapper has “nothing to do” with the movement.
For Candace Owens, this is not the first time to get caught up in a scandal.
Twitter is not messing around this time.
After the micro-blogging site, along with Facebook, was criticized heavily for its inability to recognize and suspend fake Russian accounts responsible for tipping the 2016 presidential elections in Trump’s favor, Twitter is trying to make sure the same thing does not happen again. As part of this effort, Twitter removed more than 10,000 bots pretending to belong to Democrats which constantly advised others to refrain from voting in the midterms, according to Slate.
An Australian man is behind bars after a court convicted him of encouraging his wife to commit suicide so he could collect a million-dollar life insurance policy, BBC News is reporting.
Graham Morant, 68, was sentenced to ten years in prison for convincing his wife, Jennifer Morant, 56, to take her own life so he could collect on a life insurance policy worth $1.4 million AUD (about $1 million USD.)
Mrs. Morant suffered from chronic pain, depression, and anxiety, but was not terminally ill. Nevertheless, on November 30, 2014, Mrs. Morant was found dead in her car, with a note that said, “Please don’t resuscitate me.” Outside of her car was a gasoline-powered generator, which Jennifer had used to produce the deadly carbon monoxide fumes that would claim her life.
