Published

on

A prominent MSNBC journalist publicly slammed former Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly in the wake of Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) resigning from Congress, effective at 5 p.m. eastern.

Rep. Farenthold resigned after being caught paying $84,000 in taxpayer money to pay off a sexual harassment accuser.

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle linked Rep. Farenthold’s scandal to fired Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly.

O’Reilly settled a sexual harassment claim for $32 million.

Ruhle connected the scale of the two sex scandals.

O’Reilly has blamed God for not protecting him from legal accountability.

“You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I’m mad at him,” O’Reilly said in October. “I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn’t happen. I can’t explain it to you. Yeah, I’m mad at him.”

Fears of ‘collateral damage to democracy’ swell as Trump weighs withdrawing from global postal pact

Published

on

Thousands of absentee ballots could be uncounted in upcoming elections thanks to President Donald Trump's objection to a treaty which governs the international mail exchange for nearly 200 countries.

Citing disapproval of shipping rates it says unfairly favor China, the White House is weighing a potential withdrawal next month from the Universal Postal Union (UPU), a United Nations agency which allows for global postal service.

Without U.S. membership in the UPU, overseas voters could face high shipping rates for mailing their ballots as well as mass confusion, which could leave thousands of votes uncounted in 2019 and 2020.

Millions of Americans’ medical images and data are available on the Internet — and anyone can take a peek

Published

Medical images and health data belonging to millions of Americans, including X-rays, MRIs and CT scans, are sitting unprotected on the internet and available to anyone with basic computer expertise.

The records cover more than 5 million patients in the U.S. and millions more around the world. In some cases, a snoop could use free software programs — or just a typical web browser — to view the images and private data, an investigation by ProPublica and the German broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk found.

We identified 187 servers — computers that are used to store and retrieve medical data — in the U.S. that were unprotected by passwords or basic security precautions. The computer systems, from Florida to California, are used in doctors’ offices, medical-imaging centers and mobile X-ray services.

Is it an impeachment inquiry, an investigation or something else?

Published

on

There has been a gymnastic drama going on in the Capitol, where fans of impeaching Donald Trump and those who think that process is not the best way to confront the president are writhing in definitional arm-wrestling.

Weirdly, any value you might assign to the actual words used, you can expect a lot more confrontational congressional committees towards Trump’s White House in the next weeks. Those hearings may or may not add up to impeachment efforts, which has been true until now, of course.

The House Judiciary Committee, newly driven by the extraordinary efforts to land government meetings at Trump properties and to promise pardons for illegal acts to promote his agenda, has wanted to broaden the basis for impeachment, essentially to argue that profiting from the presidency is unconstitutional.
