Via Gothamist:

Three years to the day after the launch of Occupy Wall Street, the anti-capitalist, anarchist-infused popular movement that rapidly caught the imagination of the country inspiring hundreds of encampments across the nation, some of its longest-standing and most visible participants are suing each other in the Supreme Court of New York. Over a Twitter account.

The suit asks for $500,000 in damages.

The lawsuit, which was filed today, concerns the @OccupyWallStNYC account, which has has been one of the primary voices of Occupy from the very beginning.

The Swedish Armed Forces confirmed on Friday afternoon that two Russian SU24 fighter-bombers had been detected flying over the country.

According to the Foreign Ministry, the planes passed through Swedish airspace to the south of Öland last Wednesday at lunchtime. The planes were one kilometre inside Swedish territory for about 30 seconds.

The Armed Forces had followed the planes’ movements and knew where they were, said Gabor Nagy of the Swedish Air Force. The Foreign Ministry said the Russian Ambassador had been summoned so that Sweden could make a formal protest.

Foreign Minister Carl Bildt described the flights as “the most serious aerial incursion by the Russians during my years as foreign minister.” Bildt has asked the Armed Forces for a full report into the incident.

Among the many groups some of our favorite people: CAIR, SEIU and the Democratic Socialists.

Turkish Hostages Held By ISIS Released

“See, we release prisoners from countries who pay us!”

Via CNN:

Dozens of Turkish hostages abducted by Islamist militants in northern Iraq were freed Saturday after three months in captivity.

Militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria raided the Turkish consulate in June and seized 49 people, including Consul General Ozturk Yilmaz.

Others abducted included his family, children and other citizens who were at the consulate in Mosul at the time, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

Of the total, three were local employees and 46 were Turkish citizens. All were freed and the latter are now in their home country, Turkish authorities said.

Now apologize for the replacement refs!

Via CBS:

He’s finally come out of hiding.

Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL wants to implement new personal conduct policies by the Super Bowl.

Goodell was short on specifics at a news conference Friday, his first public statements in more than a weekabout the rash of NFL players involved in domestic violence. More defiant than contrite as he was hammered with questions, Goodell said he has not considered resigning.

“Unfortunately, over the past several weeks, we have seen all too much of the NFL doing wrong,” he said in his opening statement. “That starts with me.”

The league has faced increasing criticism that it has not acted quickly or emphatically enough. The commissioner reiterated that he botched the handling of the Ray Rice case.

“The same mistakes can never be repeated,” he said.

Although the parents of slain journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff were warned of possible federal charges if they paid a ransom to their jihadist captors, the US Senate has approved a reward for information on the killers.

Just before leaving for a seven-week recess, the US Senate unanimously passed legislation that allocates $10 million for any information leading to the capture of individuals who participated in the beheading of two American journalists this month.

Happy weekend in Obamaville!

Via Chicago Tribune:

A teen was shot to death and at least 14 other people, including a 12-year-old boy, were wounded in shootings between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

The most recent shooting was a homicide that happened about 4:10 a.m. in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, and the boy killed was the seventh person shot in a few-block area of the West Garfield Park and Lawndale neighborhoods.

A 16-year-old boy was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital. Police had a difficult time finding the boy because the 911 caller gave a location of Jackson Boulevard and Pulaski Road but the boy was found in an alley about half a block west of Pulaski just north of the boulevard.

The boy was able to give his name and said, “Please don’t let me die,” according to police.

Experts: ISIS Cyber-Attack Against America Unlikely

Considering they can barely operate Twitter, I agree.

Via Time.com:

Experts say the Islamist militants’ social media savvy doesn’t translate into a real cybersecurity threat against the U.S.

In the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria’s (ISIS) drive to establish what it calls a new caliphate, the group has gathered between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters, partly thanks to its recruitment campaign over social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Widely disseminated video footage of executed American and British citizens have become ISIS’s tools for terror; the Internet is ISIS’s vehicle.

Slate Writer: “What If iPhone 6 Plus Is Too Big? Am I going to have to start carrying a purse?”

Talk about a first world problem…

Via Slate:

As I stood in line at my local AT&T store Friday morning, preparing to plunk down $399 on Apple’s next big thing, a fear crept into my thoughts: What if the iPhone 6 Plus is too big to fit into my pants pocket? Am I going to have to start carrying a purse?

This, of course, is not a novel problem. Half the smartphone-buying population has been grappling with it stoically for years, because the pockets on women’s clothing tend to be Lilliputian. Only with the growing popularity of “phablets” like the 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note, however, has the pocket-or-purse dilemma begun to affect men. Predictably, we’re freaking out.

EDITORIAL:

Anyone who reads this blog or follows me on Twitter knows I’m a huge fan of Apple products I even wear the same shoes as Apple founder Steve Jobs because we share the exact same foot problem.

Yesterday, I bought an iPhone 6 Plus and not only do I not find it hard to fit in my hands, I also don’t have this pocket problem he has.

I exaggerated the phone above the pocket line so you can see it’s actually in there.  However, in my Levi 501 jeans, the phone fits perfectly below the pocket line.

So my suggestion to Mr Oremus is that he  wear jeans that are made for men.  I’d start with Dickies – work my way up to Levi’s.

Feds Mum On Prosecutions Of Illegal Alien Border Crossers

HOLDER-ILLEGALS1

Nothing to see here, law enforcement says the program the feds are scaling back is “crucial to public safety”…

Via ABC:

The federal government refuses to say whether prosecutors in Yuma, Arizona, have scaled back a years-old program that guarantees jail time for most immigrants caught crossing the border illegally and which law enforcement officials say is crucial to public safety.

Reports that federal prosecutors have stopped some prosecutions under Operation Streamline surfaced nearly two weeks ago when Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder seeking information on the status of the zero-tolerance program that circumvents the civil immigration system and lumps together months’ worth of criminal proceedings into one day for immigrants caught crossing the border illegally.

Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot said in a letter to the senators that he had been informed that federal prosecutors in Yuma are no longer going after first offenders.

But the government has been completely silent on the issue. Public affairs officials from the Department of Homeland Security, Justice Department and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection have all refused to answer questions about whether the program has been scaled back.

Brett Worsencroft, president of the Border Patrol union for Yuma Sector border agents, said the U.S. Attorney’s Office has in fact ended prosecutions of first-time offenders.

“Operation Streamline is like one of the last strongholds we have as a deterrent. Our manpower is dwindling on a daily basis,” Worsencroft said. “The fence can only do so much.”

Worsencroft said the program was a large factor in the steep decline in border-crossers in Yuma because it sent a message that even first-time offenders would serve jail time and because it allowed agents to focus their attention on drug smugglers and other dangerous criminals.

Getting rid of prosecutions for first-time offenders is a “free ticket into the U.S.” for those who cross the border without legal status, he said.

Satanists To Hand Out Literature To Public School Kids In Florida

Via The Blaze:

Satanists have announced that they will be joining a national atheist group in handing out controversial literature to public school students in Orange County, Florida.

Among the materials reportedly planned for this school year are a Satanic-themed coloring book, “pamphlets related to the Temple’s tenets, philosophy and practice of Satanism, as well as information about the legal right to practice Satanism in school,” according to a press release from The Satanic Temple.

While both the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a secular activist group, and The Satanic Temple, a New York City-based organization that “facilitates the communication and mobilization of politically aware Satanists,” disagree with the decision to allow religious materials, both plan to combat Bible dissemination by giving out their own ideological literature at public schools in Orange County.

‘Interceptor’ Cellphone Towers Discovered Near White House And Senate

How does the government not know what these are and who is behind them? Oh, that’s right, Obama regime, porous security where it matters…

Via Washington Times:

Mysterious “interceptor” cellphone towers that can listen in someone’s phone call despite not being part of any phone networks have turned up near the White House and Senate.

A company that specializes in selling secure mobile phones discovered the existence of several of the towers in and around the nation’s capitol.

“It’s highly unlikely that federal law enforcement would be using mobile interceptors near the Senate,” ESD America CEO Les Goldsmith told the technology website Venture Beat on Thursday.

The towers are also capable of loading spyware onto a mobile device before passing off a victim’s call to a legitimate network.

“My suspicion is that it is a foreign entity,” he told Venture Beat.

Into this cauldron in Africa, we are sending our soldiers.

(Reuters) – Eight bodies, including those of three journalists, were found after an attack on a team trying to educate locals on the risks of the Ebola virus in a remote area of southeastern Guinea, a government spokesman said on Thursday.

“The eight bodies were found in the village latrine. Three of them had their throats slit,” Damantang Albert Camara told Reuters by telephone in Conakry.

However, Guinea’s Prime Minister Mohamed Saïd Fofana, speaking in a television message that had been recorded earlier, said 7 bodies of 9 missing people had been found.

He said six people have been arrested following the incident, which took place on Tuesday in Wome, a village close to the town of Nzerekore, in Guinea’s southeast, where Ebola was first identified in March.

Cincinnati Robbery Victim Defends Himself, Two Suspects End Up In Local Hospital

Robbers picked a 60 year old off duty security guard.

Via Cincinnati Enquirer

A 60-year-old robbery victim fought back by firing several gunshots at a suspect late Tuesday, Cincinnati police said.

The victim told police a man who appeared to be in his late teens ran up behind him on Epworth Avenue in Westwood about 11:15 p.m., pointed a gun at him and demanded his wallet, said Lt. Tim Brown, the night chief.

Once the wallet was turned over, the victim – who has a license to carry a concealed weapon – pulled out his own gun and the two men faced off, Brown said.

The victim fired his gun when the suspect refused to put his gun down.

The suspect took off, jumping into a car and driving away.

It was not clear if he was injured, Brown said, but police are now investigating if two people who turned up at hospitals with gunshot wounds overnight are connected.

A 17-year-old arrived at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center about midnight with a gunshot wound to his left thigh.

He told authorities he walked there from Walnut Hills after he was shot while playing basketball at Frederick Douglass Elementary School.

Also, an 18-year-old woman was treated for a gunshot wound to the right side of her head that did not penetrate her skull.

She told police she was walking down Harrison Avenue at McHenry Avenue in Westwood about 11:15 p.m. when she realized she had been shot, Brown said.

Both shooting victims are expected to recover. Neither are cooperating with police, Brown said.

Breaking: Police May Be Outside Hideout Of PA Shooter Suspect Eric Frein, Gunfire Heard

Via Daily Mail:

Eric Frein, one of the FBI’s most wanted and the man authorities say killed a Pennsylvania state trooper last week, may soon be apprehended.
Today, authorities in Pennsylvania believe Frein is hiding in the forests near his hometown of Canadensis and the state police barracks in Blooming Grove where authorities say he killed Cpl. Byron Dickson and wounded Trooper Alex Douglass.

An official told CNN police are presently outside Frein’s alleged hideout and there has been gunfire.

CNN reported the person got inside the home through forced entry.

The home is reportedly in Barret Township, according to WBRETV reporter Andy Mehalshick.
Police have said Frein nurses an unspecified grudge against law enforcement and government. Authorities say they consider it unlikely he will target the public.

The FBI most wanted release notes:

‘Frein is known to be a heavy smoker, a weapons enthusiast, and a survivalist. He claims to have fought with Serbians in Africa, and he has studied Russian and Serbian languages. He may have shaved his head on both sides and have long hair on top.’

Police have phrased it as he might be living out his ‘Cold War’ reenactment.

In checking out his MySpace account we noted that he referenced Che Guevara and the 13th Guards, a Soviet rifle division. He has a picture standing in front of St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Belgrade as his profile pic as well as a connection to the Radovan Karadzic, the “Butcher of Bosnia”.

He also belonged to a group called Istocni Vuk, or “Eastern Wolves”, who played Serbian military reenactors. Multiple pictures can be seen here. He appears to be the person in charge of that account, as the account holder references a picture of Frein, and says “Out of breath, I have a smoke”.

British And American Hostages Were Tortured, Made To Fight Each Other For Amusement Of ISIS

Above is a picture of hostage John Cantlie with Prince Harry and Prince William. He was the photographer on a motorcycle trip with the two princes. Reports are that he would not have voluntarily made the statements that he did on the recent video.

Via Daily Mail:

The Mail can today reveal that the Briton John Cantlie and his fellow hostages have been put through ‘a living hell’, according to security sources with intimate knowledge of their ordeal, and have even been forced to fight with each other for the entertainment of the jihadis.

In interviews with security sources and other former hostages, our investigation provides the first detailed account of what happened to Cantlie and the other men. It makes for gruesome reading.

After Cantlie and Foley were seized near the border, they were moved from prison to prison by the hostage takers before being passed to IS. The torture began almost immediately, overseen by British jihadists who became known by the hostages as ‘The Beatles’.

Both Cantlie and Foley were ‘water boarded’ – an interrogation technique that simulates drowning, in which the victim is strapped down with their mouth and nose covered with cloth, before large quantities of water are poured over their faces. They were also electrocuted and shot with Tasers, stun-guns which cause temporary paralysis, after being dragged from their cells to be ‘punished’ for any behaviour their captors deemed a breach of their rules.

Sounding like a presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton picked on an easy target Thursday, slamming Congress as “an evidence-free zone” where the reality of Americans’ lives “is so far from the minds of too many.”

Speaking at a panel on women’s issues at the liberal Center for American Progress, Clinton said efforts to raise the minimum wage, provide affordable child care and ensure women receive equal pay for equal work have been blocked by lawmakers’ disconnected from citizen’s daily struggle.

Those issues are “roiling beneath the surface of the political debates” she said, and need to prominent in future elections.[...]

Clinton didn’t mention it, but her remarks came a day after a special House panel formed to investigate Sep. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi held its first hearing.
