Fox News' Chris Wallace is 'jealous' of the final presidential debateOne thing is for sure: Thursday night's presidential debate was a far more civil and — dare we say — normal event than the first. Moderated by NBC's Kristen Welker, the candidates stayed more or less on topic, something the first debate's moderator, Fox News' Chris Wallace, didn't fail to notice.Asked for his response to the second and final debate, Wallace said: "First of all, I'm jealous. I would've liked to have been able to moderate that debate and get a real exchange of views instead of hundreds of interruptions."> Chris Wallace: "I'm jealous.

Ghislaine Maxwell could not contain frustration as she 'pounded' desk during bad tempered deposition

Fri, 23 Oct 2020 05:05 | The Telegraph

Ghislaine Maxwell could not contain frustration as she 'pounded' desk during bad tempered depositionGhislaine Maxwell could not hide her frustration during an increasingly heated and bad tempered legal deposition that was unsealed in New York. Several times during the seven-hour exchange, which took place over two days, her anger boiled over as she was forced to answer repeated questions about allegations made by a woman she insisted was a serial liar. At one point, unable to contain her emotions, Miss Maxwell “very inappropriately and very harshly” pounded the desk, forcing them to take a break. She was being quizzed about Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s claim that she was just 15 when she was first introduced to Jeffrey Epstein at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, which she furiously insisted had been fabricated to make the story “more exciting.” “Can we agree she was not the age she said… that is obviously, manifestly, absolutely, totally a lie,” Miss Maxwell said. Sigfrid McCawley, for Ms Roberts Giuffre, interjected, stating for the record that Miss Maxwell had banged the desk “in an inappropriate manner.” “I ask she take a deep breath and calm down,” she said. “I know this is a difficult position but physical assault or threats is not appropriate so no pounding, no stomping, no.”

Croatia accused of brutality, sexual abuse against migrantsSARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Danish aid workers stationed in the Balkans say dozens of migrants have alleged they were brutalized by Croatian law-enforcement officers when they tried to cross into the European Union nation, before being summarily expelled back to Bosnia. Nicola Bay, the head of the Danish Refugee Council in Bosnia, told The Associated Press Friday that 149 migrants of varying nationalities, independently interviewed by his staff in the country over the past 10 days, reported being exposed to “extremely abusive” treatment by Croatian police. The testimonies include allegations of brutal and prolonged beatings, of people being stripped naked and being forced to lie like logs stacked on top of each other, Bay said, adding: “In two cases, we have reports of severe sexual abuse.”

Texas Boogaloo Fired AK at Minneapolis Police Precinct, Feds Say

Fri, 23 Oct 2020 14:02 | The Daily Beast

Texas Boogaloo Fired AK at Minneapolis Police Precinct, Feds SayA member of the far-right “Boogaloo” movement allegedly opened fire on a Minneapolis Police building in May at the height of protests over the killing of George Floyd, according to federal charges announced Friday.Ivan Hunter, 26, is accused of one count of riot for his alleged participation in the protests, during which prosecutors say he fired 13 rounds from a semi-automatic rifle into the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct. Hunter is also accused of close contact with a man accused of two murders earlier this year. Both are self-described members of the “Boogaloo” movement, a loosely affiliated far-right and libertarian coalition that preaches insurrectionary violence in the hopes of setting off a civil war.It was not immediately clear whether Hunter had an attorney.Boogaloo members have had a visible and sustained presence at racial justice protests this year. Some claimed to support Black Lives Matter, or at least oppose police, a pervasive villain in Boogaloo circles. In private, some Boogaloo groups were more open about hoping to co-opt the protests to boost their own message: a Boogaloo trio arrested in Nevada earlier this year is accused of trying to spark violence at a Black Lives Matter protest in order to incite unrest.According to a criminal complaint, Hunter and other members of his Boogaloo group traveled to the Minneapolis protests, in part to rally their cause. “Lock and load boys. Boog flags are in the air, and the national network is going off,” one member of the group allegedly posted to social media ahead of the trip. Some of the men allegedly traveled far for the event; Hunter is from Texas. At least two other members of that crew, Michael Solomon and Benjamin Teeter, were arrested earlier this year for a weird plot to overthrow the government that allegedly involved attempting to provide aid to the foreign extremist group Hamas. Those arrests are among more than two-dozen recent busts on Boogaloos, including some accused of fomenting a plot foiled by state and federal law enforcement to kidnap or possibly even kill Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer this month.Boogaloo Protesters Get PA System and Milk From CopsWhile in Minneapolis on May 27, Hunter allegedly helped set the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct building on fire and shot 13 rounds into it before running off shouting, “Justice for Floyd,” an act said to be captured on camera. Other protesters are believed to have been in the building at the time, the criminal complaint alleges.Hunter allegedly bragged about the incident on Facebook, posting, “I’ve burned police stations with black panthers in Minneapolis.” In a private message, he allegedly told a friend that “My mom would call the fbi if she knew what I do and at the level I'm at w[ith] it."An often-murky set of characters has been accused of property damage following Floyd’s killing in Minneapolis in May. Four men were previously charged for allegedly helping set the city’s Third Precinct building on fire, a blaze that was cheered by some protesters and disavowed by others. In at least one case, an associate of a white supremacist group is accused of breaking windows near the protests while dressed in black in an apparent attempt to make protesters look bad.That man, Mitchell Carlson, was identified in a search warrant, and has not yet been accused of a crime. The search warrant for Carlson, filed in July, sought cell phone tower data about his whereabouts, indicating an active and high-tech effort to identify people accused of property damage during the protests.The Boogaloo movement began coalescing online in late 2019. Hunter and Steven Carrillo, an Air Force sergeant accused of murdering two law enforcement officers, were apparently early members of the scene. The criminal complaint against Hunter indicates the pair were in communication by at least December.On March 14, Hunter allegedly messaged Carrillo to “start drafting that op [operation]. The one we talked about in Decembre. I’ma green light some shit.”The two stayed in contact even after Carrillo allegedly carried out his first murder, on May 29, of a federal security officer in California.“Go go go,” Hunter allegedly messaged Carrillo four hours after the killing, which took place two days after Hunter allegedly fired into the police station. Carrillo responded with a question mark.“Boog,” Hunter clarified. “Boog” or “boogaloo” is also the name of the group’s prophesied civil war.“Did,” Carrillo responded.Hunter: “Luv”Carrillo: “Currently in hide mode”Hunter: “Go for police buildings”Carrillo: “I did better lol.”While Carrillo was on the run, he allegedly sent Hunter money. On June 6, Carrillo was accused of shooting and killing a second police officer and arrested after a car chase during which he reportedly wrote “boog” on the hood of a car in blood.Hunter allegedly told an FBI source that he and Carrillo were founding members of a Boogaloo group called the “Happy Friends Group,” which encouraged violence if police tried to take their guns. After another Boogaloo adherent’s arrest, Hunter allegedly said he would start “killing people” in retaliation.On his Twitter, which was still live on Friday, Hunter had previously pushed back on allegations that the Boogaloo movement was violent.“We are not violent Extremists, we are for liberty and freedom from oppression,” read a June post he retweeted.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Today's Horoscope

Aries Horoscope for Saturday, October 24, 2020

Whatever you do, make sure that the other person knows where you are coming from. If you play it cool for now, you`ll be shortchanging yourself and presenting a false face to someone who really needs to know what is going on. Be accommodating, but think of yourself as well. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to pretend that you do not have needs that should to be tended to. If you do, you may just be building up resentment that could sabotage things down the road. So be honest, present the facts as you know them, and expect only the best from others.
Taurus
It`s time for the Bull to get moving. If you can get other people to get active with you, you have a much better chance of sticking with it. Set up a walking or running group at your office or in your neighborhood, or organize a group of people who want to start eating healthier. It might be a good idea to exchange recipe and ideas about how to stay fit with friends and family members as well, Taurus. There is definitely strength in numbers, and the more people you can get to participate, the more successful this adventure into better health will be.
Gemini

Give yourself permission to have some fun. You`ve been working hard, and you deserve a break from the daily grind that`s been wearing you down lately. If you have someone special in your life, spend as much time as possible with them. Fun and romance go hand in hand, so you`re sure to have a good time no matter what the two of you do together. Single Geminis can have great adventures as well, especially if you have some friends who are willing to take a chance. You have an excess amount of energy, so doing something physical, like recreational or competitive sports, is a great way to pass the time.
Cancer
Deal with family or roommate issues before leaving the house, if possible. The small things that are bothering you in the morning will only grow stronger throughout the day, and you won`t be able to get any real work done if your personal problems are on your mind. Take a proactive approach to solving communication problems and don`t be afraid to be the one who speaks up first. The situation you need to deal with is probably on everyone else`s mind as well, but they don`t have the guts to come out and say so. Once this is all over with, they`ll thank you for breaking the ice.
Leo

You are a great friend, and your pals are lucky to have someone like you in their lives. You go out of your way to help them when they have problems, and you`re fun to hang out with as well. Sharing your feelings can help you become closer to someone new, but try not to share too much too soon. The intimate details of your life shouldn`t be revealed until you know that you can trust the other person. You have the most fun with people who like to do the same kinds of things that you do, although you`re open to learning about new things, too.
Virgo
Instead of participating in mindless chatter, sit down and have a real heart-to-heart with someone. Your family and friends really want to know what`s on your mind, and this is the perfect time to share your thoughts with them. Philosophy is especially interesting to you right now, and it`s fun to exchange ideas and concepts with people who have something interesting to say and who can give you a new perspective on a broad range of topics.
Libra

Libra loves to look at beautiful things. You appreciate all kinds of aesthetically pleasing objects, and you can definitely relate to the saying that `beauty is in the eye of the beholder.` You see people, places and things in a new light, and you`re anxious to apply your newfound appreciation to everything and everyone you come in contact with. Take a camera with you wherever you go, because the way a leaf looks on the ground or the angle of a shadow on the sidewalk may never look that way again. You`ll be glad you were able to capture an image of the way it looked the moment you saw it.
Scorpio
Although you`re usually very strong-willed, you just don`t have much of an opinion about anything right now. As far as you`re concerned, other people can make all of the decisions that need to be made without your input. You aren`t averse to tossing ideas back and forth with your friends or coworkers, but you aren`t interested in coming to any kind of real conclusions. If you`re in a leadership role, you might want to delegate your authority to someone else for a while, at least until you`re a little more willing to make concrete decisions.
Sagittarius

To put it simply, you just aren`t ready for what you`re supposed to be doing. You definitely need more time to prepare. Whether you`re getting ready to take a test, give a presentation, going to an interview or simply answer someone else`s pressing questions, you need a little wiggle room. Rushing doesn`t work to your advantage at the moment, and if you`re pushed into performing before you`re ready, you won`t like the results. Make up an excuse, create a diversion or do whatever you have to do in order to buy yourself more time, Sagittarius. In this case, the ends justify the means.
Capricorn
Are you doing this because you really want to, or because you feel that you have to? Your personal or professional life -- or both -- is in question at the moment, and you`re the only one who can make a change. Although making a giant leap might seem like a scary prospect, your timing is actually just right. The Universe is helping you right now, guiding you toward greener pastures and bluer seas. Take the first step and don`t look back. Someday your friends and relatives will be talking about what courage it took for you to do this.
Aquarius

You`ve been following orders and doing what you`re told like a good girl or boy, but now the time is right to step out on your own and experience something totally new. When you`re in charge, you aren`t afraid to do things that other people consider wacky, silly or downright crazy -- and just think of the great stories you`ll be able to tell when you`re finished! If you can find other people who want to join in, you`re more than happy to bring them along, and who knows -- there may actually be a certain amount of camaraderie among this crowd after this long strange trip is through.
Pisces
You love to feel useful, so this is a good time to find something that`s broken and try to fix it. It doesn`t have to be anything big, but you get a great amount of satisfaction from mending things right now. Darn some socks, fix a chair leg or glue together the dish that you broke a few days ago. If everything around you seems perfect, lend a friend a hand. And don`t feel like you have to concentrate on physical things either -- a friend`s heart or an animal`s spirit can count as broken things as well -- and the reward you get if you`re able to fix things them is tenfold.
