BREAKING: Ex-pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli has bail revoked in New York securities fraud case, heads to jail.
3:08 PM - 13 Sep 2017

NEW YORK — Former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli had his bail revoked and was headed to jail Wednesday while awaiting sentencing for a securities fraud conviction.

A judge heard arguments about whether the provocative online antics of Shkreli, dubbed the Pharma Bro, were bad enough to put him behind bars and decided to have him taken into custody immediately.

A judge said Shkreli’s offer to pay a $5,000 bounty for a Hillary Clinton hair with the follicle was “solicitation of an assault.” The judge said Wednesday that’s not protected by the First Amendment and there’s “a risk someone may take” Shkreli up on his offer.

A defense attorney had argued in court papers that Shkreli’s recent offer to pay a $5,000 bounty for securing a Hillary Clinton hair with a follicle while she’s on a book tour was merely a tasteless joke comparable to some of President Donald Trump’s derisive comments, not a threat worthy of putting him behind bars.


Sarah Huck Sanders is an idiot. Dems the DEMOCRATIC PARTY!!

Sarah Huck Sanders is an idiot. Dems = the DEMOCRATIC PARTY!! She is an inarticulate fool.

"THEY" .... The "Republic" Party can't take time to choose correct words when they speak in public.
And Sarah Huck Sanders is a Redneck white trashy woman.

I can't stand her. I throw up a little in my mouth every time she gets to her podium.

TRUMP IS AN EVIL MAN. Trump tells cabinet Hurricane Irma means wealthy need their tax cuts faster.

Trump’s got another priority for his cabinet: massive tax cuts for the uber rich.
That’s right. At today’s cabinet meeting, Trump made sure every cabinet member present knew that the hurricane means a “speed up” in delivering on his “tax reform” agenda.
Despite the populist rhetoric, the reality of Trump’s push for tax cuts could not be more clear: massive tax breaks for corporations and the nation’s millionaires and billionaires.

TRUMP: To create prosperity at home we’ll be discussing our plan for dramatic tax cuts and tax reform. And I think now with what’s happened with the hurricane, I’m gonna ask for a speed up. I wanted a speed up any way, but now we need it even more so. So we need to simplify the tax code, reduce taxes very substantially on the middle class. And make our business tax more globally competitive. We’re the highest anywhere in the world right now.

Where is the smoke coming from? Map shows 74+ wildfires burning in western states

KHQ.COM - If you're wondering where all of the smoke in the air is coming from... the answer is probably not one specific fire. Currently there are more than 74 major wildfires burning in 8 western states including Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and California. Dozens of those fires are burning in our immediate region.

The map below is a map of US wildfire locations (active/recent) and other sources of information related to wildfires, including social media. Click on the areas of interest and zoom in to explore.

According to the map legend, all of the fire symbols are showing actively burning fires. The areas in purple are areas with an excessive heat warning.Area in gray show regions where there is an air quality alert in effect.

Due to all the smoke and ash in the air, KHQ has called for a Weather Authority Alert which will remain in place through Wednesday afternoon. Those with breathing problems, sensitivities or allergies should limit their time outdoors.

"Driver James Alex Fields Jr. was wearing white shirt and khakis." To follow Trump's ideas is moronic; to follow his fashion is brain dead.

This has to be comedy: POTUS tells sen. McConnell to get back to work ... while at his golf course.


Senate defies Trump on call to investigate Hillary Clinton

President Donald Trump's relentless calls for more investigations into Hillary Clinton, her emails and the Democratic National Committee are largely being ignored in Congress, where Republicans spent years and millions of dollars on Clinton probes that turned up nothing. And Senate Republicans say Trump is wrong in prodding his attorney general via Twitter to revive an inquiry into the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee who lost the election to Trump.

"It harkens back to the notion of a banana republic," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said of what he called Trump's "inappropriate" calls for investigations into Clinton. "It's what dictators do, they look to punish their enemies."


It's questionable as to whether Sessions would be able to order an investigation into Clinton even if he were inclined to do so: In his letter of recusal, Sessions noted he was sidelining himself from "any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for president of the United States."

Democrats said the concept of a president browbeating his attorney general to take action against a political rival is entirely misguided.

"I didn't support him for the job, but Sessions is doing his job," said Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. "It's one more example of this president's disrespect for the rule of law."


I am with this guy .... We can see Russia from New York City.


Gees i wish someone within the IRS would provide Trumps taxes !!! Whistleblower style.

why is Trump going crazy??? Is it because Mueller has asked IRS to go after Trumps Taxes?

WE NEED A hero !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Unconventional Idea

But what if the returns were dumped on the committee’s lap by an IRS employee without the Committee having made a request? That could happen under the very last paragraph in subsection (f).

Section §6103(f)(5) is a whistleblower exception to the general rule of nondisclosure. It permits disclosure of tax returns to one of the tax-writing committees by “any person who otherwise has or had access to any return or return information under this section” when that person believes that “such return or return information may relate to possible misconduct, maladministration, or taxpayer abuse.”

The plain language of this provision suggests that an IRS employee who otherwise has authorized access to Trump’s tax returns could blow the whistle on Trump if that employee believes Trump’s tax returns related to “possible misconduct” or “possible maladministration.”
