Trump Organization Will Walk Away From Its Struggling SoHo Hotel in New York

The announcement came on his television show, “The Apprentice.” Donald J. Trump would open his second luxury hotel in New York, a “work of art” in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan that would become “an awe-inspiring masterpiece.”

That was 11 years ago. The 46-story skyscraper, it turned out, was actually an albatross for Mr. Trump — drawing local opposition soon after its unveiling, partisan protests when he became a candidate for president and political scrutiny because of its early ties to a dubious Russian deal maker.

Now, in the latest sign of strain in the president’s family business, the Trumps want no more.

The Trump Organization has reached a deal that will allow the company to walk away from the property by the end of next month, the company said Wednesday. It is the second time this year the Trump name was erased from a hotel development, after a June announcement in Toronto.

U.S. government warns businesses about cyber bug in Intel chips

(Reuters) - The U.S. government on Tuesday urged businesses to act on an Intel Corp alert about security flaws in widely used computer chips as industry researchers scrambled to understand the impact of the newly disclosed vulnerability.

The Department of Homeland Security gave the guidance a day after Intel said it had identified security vulnerabilities in remote-management software known as “Management Engine” that shipped with eight types of processors used in business computers sold by Dell Technologies Inc, Lenovo Group Ltd, HP Inc, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co and other manufacturers.

Net Neutrality Easy Graph

If we repeal #NetNeutrality then this is what it's going to look like. This isn't a left/right issue. This is a freedom issue. The internet is the one of the last things we have that isn't controlled by the Gov. Don't let them censor us

Be on lookout for Russians in submarine heading for Trumps Mar-a-Lago

Be on the lookout for a submarine this Thanksgiving.
If you are in the vicinity of the Intracoastal Waterway from the Palm Beach Inlet to the Southern Boulevard Bridge, immediately report any unusual wakes, large underwater shadows and surfacing periscopes throughout the week.

Let’s hope that nothing comes of this. But better safe than sorry.

As you probably know, President Donald Trump is spending the holiday at his Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago, and we’ve got to maintain a secure perimeter there.

The potential threats from air, land and surface waters are well covered, but there’s a Russian-owned submarine that just showed up in the area. And we can’t take any chances of infiltration from below.

As Bundy trial begins, militia man Payne faces tough road to freedom

As he approached the jurors Wednesday afternoon in U.S. District Court, Assistant Federal Public Defender Ryan Norwood seemed thoroughly prepared to make his opening statement on behalf of client Ryan Payne.

It was just as clear Norwood had his work cut out for him.

Payne, a Montana resident, answered a call for help from Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy and his family in early April 2014. Whether that makes Payne a hero or a dupe largely depends on how you interpret the motives and facts of the case, but what’s not in question is the amount of trouble he finds himself in as his trial unfolds in U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro’s courtroom. Like his three co-defendants, if convicted he faces decades in prison.

As the leader of Operation Mutual Aid, a loose national network of militia groups, Payne encouraged like-minded people to bring their weapons to the Nevada desert to provide security for the Bundy family against the federal oppressors. It was clear even from lawyer Norwood’s opening remarks that his client didn’t spend a lot of time researching the grazing rights dustup between Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management before locking and loading his AR15.

Russian yacht docks in port; Will Putin friend pay Trump a visit?

RIVIERA BEACH —
Days before President Trump flies into town for Thanksgiving, one of the world’s most expensive yachts, owned by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, sailed into the Port of Palm Beach Friday afternoon.

The 533-foot Eclipse, valued at $400 million to $500 million, comes equipped with a pool, helipad, submarine and room for a crew of 92, according to marine websites. It made its way past The Bahamas and docked at 1:15 p.m, taking the slip normally reserved for the Grand Celebration, a cruise ship currently on hurricane-relief duty in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.

Originally booked to stay through Dec. 5, the Eclipse may have to leave Dec. 1, as it is being followed by the 644-foot World, billed as “the largest private residential ship on the planet,” which is scheduled to arrive that day.

Landowner near Keystone Pipeline leak says he isn't surprised

MARSHALL COUNTY, S.D. Crews are continuing to clean up what is considered the largest oil spill in South Dakota history. The incident happened around 6 a.m. Thursday morning and 5,000 barrels or 210,000 gallons leaked near Amherst.


One farmer, who owns land just north of where the oil leak happened and has pipeline underneath his property, says he isn't surprised that any of this happened.

"Well, it's like the other shoe dropping. We were told by a lot of people that when TransCanada put this thing in the ground that the conditions, it was sloppy, wet conditions, and they just drove it in cause in a hurry, time is money," Marshall County Landowner Kent Moeckly said.
