    A father has left his neighbors 'laughing their heads off' after accidentally ordering a 25-foot inflatable Santa. Matty James, 32, believed he had purchased a eight foot blow-up Father Christmas from eBay - only for the festive whopper to turn out to be 25 feet instead. The nightclub owner, from Southport, Merseyside, spent $130 on the inflatable decoration in the hope of sprucing out the outside of his home for the festive season, but was left open-mouthed when the flaccid St Nick was blown up earlier this month.

    Maybe he was trying to get a jump on the company’s upcoming liquidation. Long before Toys ‘R’ Us announced plans to go out of the toy business, an employee at a store in Virginia stole nearly 3,000 toys before flipping them on eBay for nearly $123,000, authorities said. Obaid Sheikh, 25, stole 2,970 toys during his four years of working at a Toys ‘R’ Us location in Fairfax and then sold the items online, WJLA reports. An asset protection manager for Toys ‘R’ Us launched an investigation in October 2017 after a string of thefts at the store. He later...

    A Virginia man was sentenced yesterday to two years in prison for stealing more than 100 Civil War-era documents from the National Archives, including some he tried to sell on eBay. Howard Harner, 68, took letters authored by Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and other historical figures. Federal prosecutors sought a lengthy sentence to help discourage trafficking in stolen American history. Harner, of Staunton, pleaded guilty in March to hiding the documents in his clothing and smuggling them out of a National Archives research room from 1996 to 2002. Prosecutors said he made $47,314 by selling the documents to a...

    As the 2014 midterm elections approached, the media were quick to criticize conservative donors like the Koch brothers for backing issues important to them. But journalists largely ignored the incredible financial power being used to promote the liberal agenda. Five top donors – Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Pierre Omidyar, Tom Steyer and George Soros’s own son, Jonathan – are major funders of the left. Together, they have contributed at least $2.7 billion since 2000 to groups pushing abortion, gun control, climate change alarmism and liberal candidates. That’s not how major media depicted them. Broadcast networks applauded when billionaire hedge fund...

    Let’s start with a caveat from one of the authors of The Intercept’s story, just so we’re clear on what *isn’t* being alleged. very very important: there’s nothing in the NSA report indicating the actual voting machines or vote tabulations were compromised— Sam Biddle (@samfbiddle) June 5, 2017 Was that the goal, though? The piece is long and difficult to excerpt so I’ll try to summarize. According to the NSA (CBS has confirmed that this is indeed a real NSA report), last August Russia’s military intelligence unit — the GRU — hacked into a software company, likely VR Systems...

    The alleged US operative, Maryland-based Mohamed Elshinawy, was charged with attempting to support ISIS in December 2015. Federal agents believed he was selling computer printers on eBay as a front for receiving funds via PayPal from the terrorist organization, the Wall Street Journal reports. The funds allegedly came from Siful Sujan, who was killed in a 2015 drone attack. The $8,700 Elshinawy received from Sujan was allegedly intended to help fund a terrorist attack. Elshinawy was convicted after investigators reviewed his Western Union and PayPal records. Investigators subpoenaed eBay, which provided Elshinawy’s account and transaction information.
