Newsweek editors clash with top executive over money laundering accusations

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 10:10 AM PST

According to a report from The Hill, Newsweek editors clashed with Chief Content Officer Johnathan Davis during a meeting in which Davis  chastised employees for reporting about the news site’s legal issues. During the meeting, Davis reportedly declined to answer questions regarding money laundering allegations and tax evasion.

The report is apparently based on a recording obtained by the Daily Beast. The Hill reports: The tension comes after Newsweek fired its editor-in-chief, executive news director and two senior writers earlier this week after publishing reports regarding financial challenges at the publication and a law enforcement raid in January. Last week, BuzzFeed highlighted a report that accuses Newsweek’s sister outlets of using fraudulent online ad practices.
 
"[The raid] led to the BuzzFeed article about the fake clicks, which you orchestrated," Gersh Kuntzman, a breaking news editor, said to Davis. "So you should be honest with everybody in this room: Are we running a money laundering operation? Are we evading taxes? You need to tell us that because we can't work here if you're a liar."

Davis didn’t provide any answers about the ongoing district attorney probe into the company, according to the Daily Beast report. 

"There's an investigation going on right now that's active," Davis said. "And they're going to come up with their own conclusions. And when that comes out, you're going to know the answer."
 
Davis also reportedly said that Newsweek's reporting on the raid and other issues unfavorable to the company derailed a major business deal overseas. 

"The recent string of articles has done real damage to our business relationships, to our partners," Davis, a co-founder of Newsweek’s reboot in 2013, said. "So there's a larger business context."

One editor took exception to Davis’s claim. 
 
"Do you think that the articles we published did more damage than the fact that we were raided and accused of ad fraud and there was a sexual harassment story that came out and there were questions about the ownership?" one asked. 

"Yes," Davis replied.

Famous comedian reveals 2yr old son died of brain cancer

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 09:27 AM PST

In a Friday Facebook post, star of “Catastrophe” Rob Delaney announced that his two-year-old son had died from cancer, leaving his family “devastated.”

According to the post, Henry Delaney was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016. The tumor was removed early last year, but the cancer came back  and Henry died in January.

“Henry was a joy,” Delaney wrote, “He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together.”

The full text of the Facebook post reads: I have very sad news. My two and a half year year old son Henry has passed away. Henry had been diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2016, shortly after his first birthday, following persistent vomiting and weight loss. He had surgery to remove the tumor and further treatment through the early part of 2017. Then the cancer returned last autumn and he died in January.

My wife and Henry’s older brothers and I are devastated of course. Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he’d moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals. His tumor and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities, but he quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum. His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound.

I am astonished by the love-in-action displayed by Henry’s mom and his brothers. They are why I will endeavor to not go mad with grief. I don’t want to miss out on their beautiful lives. I’m greedy for more experiences with them.

The NHS nurses and doctors and the home carers and charity workers who helped our family survive Henry’s illness will be my heroes until the day I die. I am desperately sad right now, but I can say with authority that there is good in this world.

If you’d like to help other families in the UK with very sick children, please make a donation to Rainbow Trust (https://rainbowtrust.org.uk) or Noah’s Ark (https://www.noahsarkhospice.org.uk) in Henry’s name or in the name of someone you love. Our family would be in much worse shape right now if it weren’t for them. I would also urge you to take concrete and sustained action to support the NHS, however you can. Do not take it for granted.

Finally, I ask that you respect my family’s privacy regarding this matter. I have nothing else to say that I haven’t said here.

Thank you, beautiful Henry, for spending as much time with us as you did. We miss you so much.

Professor slammed for using racial slur in class

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 09:21 AM PST

Several Princeton University students walked out of class after being triggered by anthropology professor Lawrence Rosen, who allegedly used the n-word multiple times during a lecture this week.

According to a report in The Daily Princetonian, the school’s newspaper, Rosen used the racial slur when asking a question Tuesday during his Anthropology 212 course, "Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy and Pornography."

"What is worse, a white man punching a black man, or a white man calling a black man a n—-r?" Rosen allegedly asked the students.

According to one student, Rosen, who did not return a message seeking comment Friday, used the word while describing "what is acceptable as free speech and what is not."

According to the Daily Princetonian:

"All the black students were looking at each other, as if asking whether he actually said that," said Destiny Salter '20. There were about six black students in the lecture, Holliday said.

According to Holliday, E Jeremijenko-Conley '20, who identifies as white, responded to Rosen by saying, "I'm not comfortable with a white professor using the N-word."

Holliday told the 'Prince' that Malachi Byrd '19 allegedly asked Rosen, "So are you just going to keep using the N-word?"

According to Salter, Rosen allegedly responded, "Yes, if I think it's necessary."

After this, Byrd walked out of lecture. Later on, three more students also walked out, according to Jeremijenko-Conley.

Byrd eventually came back to the class and asked if the professor would continue to use the offensive word in his lectures. Students began demanding he apologize, but he refused.

Trump meets cancer survivor who says the president saved his life (picture)

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 09:11 AM PST

During the 2016 presidential election, a campaign volunteer for President Donald J. Trump, Shane Bouvet, did an interview which drew Trump’s attention. Trump met with Bouvet in 2017 and gave him $10,000 to pay for his father’s bladder cancer treatment.

On Friday, Trump met with the Shane and his father, Donald.

Breitbart reports: Donald Bouvet is now cancer-free, prompting the president to invite them to visit him at the White House.

"I've always told Shane, one day I wanted to come here or meet you somewhere, shake your hand and look you in the eye and say thank you for saving my life," Donald Bouvet said to the president.

Trump replied that it was "incredible" that Shane would give his money to his father rather than keep it for himself.

"That is a tremendous story of the love of a father by his son," Trump said. "You just don't see it often and it's one of the beautiful things."

According to NBC, Trump told Shane: "You didn't have anything. And you gave all of it. … That’s an incredible son."

Trump also gave the Bouvets an additional check for $5,000 on Friday.

Muslim jihadi finds his terror trial humorous

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 09:11 AM PST

Laughing during court proceedings on Wednesday, Bronx would-be terrorist Sajmir Alimehmeti, 24, also smiled and waved to the courtroom as he was led away.

Alimehmeti is standing trial after allegedly attempting to provide material support to ISIS and lying on a U.S. passport application. He was arrested in May 2016 after showing undercover agents his favorite beheading videos, which he claimed to watch while working out.

Since he’s been in jail, prosecutors allege that Alimehmeti has also picked up "terrorist propaganda" from convicted Chelsea bomber Ahmad Rahimi.

Alimehmeti, who is a U.S. citizen, could face up to 45 years in federal prison.

Joy Behar sparks a fight with Meghan McCain (video)

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 09:01 AM PST

“The View’s” Joy Behar got into it with co-host Meghan McCain on Friday’s show after she declared, “As a Democrat, I’m offended by Republicans.”

Pushing the liberal narrative, Behar went on to say how she is “offended by a party that backs a racist.”

At the time, the women were discussing White House chief of Staff John Kelly having said he was “shocked” about the abuse allegations levied against former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who left the White House this week amid reports he physically abused two ex-wives. While showing photos of one of his alleged victims, Behar laughed at the notion that Kelly was “so shocked” by the news.

“We shouldn’t make levity of this, we’re talking about the abuse of a woman, we should not be laughing,” McCain reprimanded her, prompting Behar to retort, “We’re talking about Kelly, we’re not talking about abuse right now. Don’t say something like that.”

“We’re laughing at him being shocked,” said Behar.

“It’s very serious and as a Republican I am offended,” McCain continued, before Behar cut her off by stating, “As a Democrat, I’m offended by Republicans.”

Suspected killer says he was hired by victim

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 08:49 AM PST

A man arrested in Colorado for killing a 19-year-old woman says the victim hired him to kill her through a Craigslist ad.

A newly released affidavit says the accused killer answered an ad titled, "I want to put a hit on myself.”

According to Denver7: Joseph Michael Lopez, 22, was arrested Thursday evening and booked into the Adams County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of Natalie Bollinger, of Broomfield, Colorado.

Bollinger was found dead in unincorporated Adams County on Dec. 29, 2017, about 26 hours after she was reported missing.

The police document released Friday details the steps and procedures Adams County investigators took to arrive at Thursday's arrest. It also detailed the suspect's claims he killed Bollinger execution style at her own request.

The document further outlines how investigators were led to Lopez after searching the victim's phone and discovering more than 100 text messages between the two on the night she was reported missing. Lopez says the conversation was in response to the ad Bollinger allegedly placed on the classified ad website, the content of which has yet to be disclosed.  

The affidavit continues and states that Lopez arranged to pick up Bollinger from her Broomfield apartment on Dec. 28. He told detectives after he picked Bollinger up, they discussed how he would be paid and how Bollinger allegedly wanted to be killed, "on her knees… executed from behind," according to the police document. Lopez said Bollinger brought her own gun.

According to the affidavit, Lopez admitted to shooting and killing Bollinger with a single gunshot to the head. He said Bollinger "knelt down on the ground and that he knelt down along her left side and slightly in front of her." He then claims they both said a prayer, he got up, closed his eyes and shot the teen. He took off with Bollinger's purse and the gun.

Clinton pal Tariq Ramadan charged with raping 2 Muslim women

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 08:36 AM PST

Hillary Clinton’s pal Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder and Hamas funder Hassan al Banna, was denied bail after he was arrested in Paris last week on charges that he raped two Muslim women.

Ramadan, a professor at Oxford University, also reportedly “seduced and had sexual relations with teenage girls at a Geneva school where he once taught”, according to a report in Judicial Watch:

The women say Ramadan told them they were special before having sex with them in the back of his car. One of the women was 14 at the time and the others were 15 to 18 years old. They say Ramadan used his authority as their teacher to seduce them. Oxford University placed Ramadan on a leave of absence after the rape allegations surfaced as well as other accusations of assault and sexual harassment.

"Professor Ramadan's teaching, supervising and examining duties will be reassigned, and he will not be present at the University or College," reads a statement issued by Oxford in early November. "The University has consistently acknowledged the gravity of the allegations against Professor Ramadan, while emphasizing the importance of fairness and the principles of justice and due process."

Judicial Watch points out that when she was Barack Obama's Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton signed special orders to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties had banned them from the United States. One of them was Ramadan.

As the nation's chief foreign affairs adviser, Clinton exercised her exemption authority to allow Ramadan and South African sociologist Adam Habib, a critic of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, back into the country. The State Department had repeatedly denied their visa claiming the men present a national security threat. 

According to a report in Fox News, Ramadan, 55, lectures on what he says is a reform-minded Islam. Critics, however, accuse him of engaging in “taqiyah,” an Arabic word for dissimulation to protect oneself or the Islamic faith, and think he has a “far more obscure hidden agenda.”

Omarosa compares Trump to accused rapist Bill Cosby

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 08:22 AM PST

Former Trump aid Omarosa Manigault compared President Donald J. Trump to accused rapist and comedian Bill Cosby on Thursday night’s  “Celebrity Big Brother.” Manigault told former Cosby co-star Keshia Knight Pullman that her standing by the president was like Pullman standing by Cosby, as he faced rape allegations.

TMZ reports that another former Cosby co-star, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, disagrees with that comparison. They report: Malcolm-Jamal Warner thinks Omarosa’s Donald Trump-Bill Cosby comparison is unfair … because she knew what she was getting into BEFORE she went to work with the Prez.

The former ‘Cosby Show’ star was at LAX Friday when he addressed Omarosa’s convo on “Celebrity Big Brother” with Keshia Knight-Pulliam. She tried to justify being loyal to Trump by pointing out Keshia stuck by Cosby during his sexual assault trial.

MJW’s not having it, and explains he and Keshia grew up with Cosby — long before the flood of sexual misconduct allegations — and considered him family. 

Malcolm adds … Omarosa made a conscious choice to get in with Trump, despite all his controversial comments on the campaign trail. 

Warner said it is hard to compare the two circumstances. You may watch the video with his comments in the video below, as well as the referenced clip from “Celebrity Big Brother.”

Trump tweets: Defends himself for defending Porter

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 08:19 AM PST

Trump on Saturday raised questions about a lack of due process after two White House aides resigned this week following allegations of past domestic abuse.

“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?,” Trump tweeted.

DML responded to the tweet: “There is never an excuse for a man hitting a woman. Any man who does such a thing is a wimp. How about the life of the female being destroyed? They take abuse out of fear of many things. Perhaps a tweet about domestic abuse would be better served. Sometimes you are clueless.”

Trump has come under fire after he came to the defense of former aid Rob Porter who is accused of hitting his two ex-wives.  On Friday, during a presser held in the Oval Office, Trump said nothing about the two women potentially being victims of domestic abuse, instead he praised Porter’s work at the White House and repeated that the former aid says he is innocent.  WATCH

Trump under fire for defending Porter amid spousal abuse claims (video)

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 08:06 AM PST

President Donald Trump is under fire for defending former aide Rob Porter after the man’s two ex-wives accused Porter of physical and emotional abuse.  Pictures released by the DailyMail revealed one wife with a black eye.

Trump on Friday told reporters that Porter, who resigned when the abuse allegations became public this week, had "worked hard" at the White House and then wished him well.

"It's a, obviously, tough time for him. He did a very good job when he was in the White House. And we hope he has a wonderful career," said Trump after allegations surfaced against Porter. He added, "He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent.”

Women's groups and Democrats immediately condemned Trump’s comments and complained that he did not mention the Porter’s ex-wives in his comments.

Critics also zeroed in on White House chief of staff John Kelly, questioning his handling of the matter and wondering how long he will manage to maintain his job in light of Trump's growing frustration. They also raised questions about how seriously the president takes allegations of domestic abuse.

POLL: Most Americans believe Obama improperly surveilled Trump

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 08:00 AM PST

Despite more than a year of relentless propaganda perpetrated by Democrats and the liberal-leaning mainstream media, a new poll from IBD/TIPP shows that "Americans overwhelmingly believe the Obama administration 'improperly surveilled' Donald Trump's presidential campaign."

According to the data, 55 percent of Americans now believe it is "likely" that the Obama administration "improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 election."

Americans who believe Obama played dirty during the election include:

  • 31 percent of Democrats
  • 87 percent of Republicans
  • 55 percent of Independents.

And 54 percent want a special counsel to investigate "whether the FBI and the Department of Justice improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election."

Only 35 percent believe that the FBI and Justice Department attempted to outright frame Trump for colluding with the Russians.

newly-released Rasmussen poll shows that 50 percent of Americans "believe it's at least somewhat likely senior federal law enforcement officials broke the law in an effort to prevent Donald Trump from winning the presidency." Only 40 percent disagree.

Another Rasmussen poll from this week shows that only 42 percent of Americans believe Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election more than the FBI. Moreover, a full 34 percent believe the FBI meddled more than the Russians, while 24 percent are unsure.

Trump Tweet: It’s all starting to come out

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 07:55 AM PST

Trump tweeted Saturday the following message: “According to the , a Russian sold phony secrets on "Trump" to the U.S. Asking price was $10 million, brought down to $1 million to be paid over time. I hope people are now seeing & understanding what is going on here. It is all now starting to come out – DRAIN THE SWAMP!”

The tweet comes less than 24-hours after the president decided not to release the 10-page FISA memo written by Democrats.  It also comes on the heels of another Saturday morning tweet in which Trump said he didn’t release the memo because it was “too political.” 

Former GOP lawmaker turned media personality, Joe Walsh responded with a question about transparency.  He tweeted: “I’ve been watching all morning and I’ve yet to hear anyone demand Trump “release the memo.” Don’t these Fox News Trump supporters believe in transparency?”

DML responded to Walsh: “Joe, don’t bucket all supporters. There r plenty of reasonable people but Fox invites only those who want memos about BHO and HRC. Ever notice how Fox won’t interview real experts to argue against granting citizenship to DACA “kids.” But Fox will take impeachment ad money. CLOWNS”

According to Walsh, Trump blocked him on Twitter weeks ago when he questioned the president for offering amnesty.

Kim Jong Un extends invitation to South Korean president (video)

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 07:38 AM PST

A Saturday lunch lead to a rare invitation as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, invited South Korean President Moon Jae-in to visit her brother in Pyongyang.

The Washington Examiner reportsNothing has been settled on any trip north by South Korean President Moon Jae-in. But the verbal message to come at a “convenient time” from dictator Kim Jong Un, delivered by his visiting little sister, Kim Yo Jong, is part of a sudden rush of improving feelings between the rivals during the Pyeongchang Olympics. The result: a heady, sometimes surreal, state of affairs in a South Korea that has seen far more threat than charm out of the North.

Moon told Kim Yo Jong that the North and South should continue to build conditions for a summit, Moon spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said Saturday. The U.S. and the North should quickly resume dialogue, he said.

The lunch Saturday at Seoul’s presidential mansion between Moon and Kim Yo Jong was the most significant diplomatic encounter between the rivals in years. The night before, Kim Yo Jong and other North Korean delegates attended the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, watching a “unified” Korean team march under a banner showing an undivided Korean Peninsula.

After sitting at a table, Kim Yo Jong placed a blue document folder in front of her. She later gave that folder to Moon, and Moon’s office said it was a personal letter from her brother. Officials didn’t reveal what was written in it.

Trump Tweets: Dems FISA memo rejection

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 07:21 AM PST

President Trump decided Friday not to release the 10-page FISA memo submitted by Democrats.

Although the GOP heavy House voted to release the document, Trump waited 5 days to reject the memo.  Trump tweeted Saturday morning with the following message: “The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency. Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!”

Trump has received criticism from lawmakers who say he has something to hide, and on GOP member of the House said he read the memo and it posed no threats to national security.

DML News ran a poll Saturday morning asking readers if they are disappointed that the memo was not released as written, thus far 76% say they are not.

Trump Tweet: Jobless claims, DML responds

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 07:09 AM PST

President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday morning, “Jobless claims have dropped to a 45 year low!” two days after the Department of Labor released its weekly report.

Initial U.S. jobless claims plummeted to 221,000 in the seven days ended Feb 3. This was a decrease of 9,000 from the previous week’s un-revised level of 230,000, according to a DOL press release.

DML added to Trump’s tweet by writing: “Congrats to the millions of entrepreneurs and CEOs who take the initiatives, make the investments, and assume the risks to expand and create new jobs.”

Man convicted of raping and impregnating 3 young teens

Posted: 10 Feb 2018 06:54 AM PST

A Youngstown, Ohio, family is devastated after they tried to help a homeless man who ended up raping and impregnating the three young sisters who lived in their home.

Prior to his sentencing on Thursday for rape and sexual battery charges, assistant Mahoning County Prosecutor Jennifer McLaughlin recalled how 34-year-old Arnold Perry abused the trust of the girls’ family after their mother allowed him to move in when he had nowhere to  live, according to The Vindicator. He received 27 years in prison.

In 2015 and 2016, Perry raped both 14-year-old twins and their 12-year-old sister while living in their home.

McLaughlin said one of the twins had an abortion, but because their pregnancies were discovered too late to end them, the other two girls did give birth. “These girls will suffer the rest of their lives because of this,” she noted.
