  • Man blows $1M on cars, strippers and cocaine after bank glitch

    12/09/2016 8:04:15 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 58 replies
    A debt-ridden student blew $1.3 million on sports cars, speed boats, strippers and cocaine after a bank error gave him an unlimited overdraft. Wannabe playboy Luke Moore lived the high life for two years before he was caught by cops and jailed on fraud charges. The Australian treated himself to luxury holidays, a $57,000 Aston Martin, a $22,000 Maserati and a $33,000 boat while living the ultimate bachelor lifestyle. But he was slapped with a four-year jail term last year after the banking glitch came to light. Moore, 29, went free last week after winning an appeal of his conviction...

  • State Department deliberately cut embarrassing questions from press briefing video

    The State Department acknowledged Wednesday that someone in its public affairs bureau made a “deliberate” request that several minutes of tape be cut from the video of a 2013 press briefing in which a reporter asked if the administration had lied about secret talks with Iran. The embarrassing admission by State Department spokesman John Kirby came three weeks after another spokesperson insisted that a “glitch” had caused the gap, discovered only last month by the reporter whose questioning had mysteriously disappeared. “This wasn’t a technical glitch, this was a deliberate step to excise the video,” Kirby told reporters. Kirby said...

    WASHINGTON – Though the Homeland Security Department has not terminated a high-ranking department official accused of resume fraud, sources say she's been denied the security clearance she needs to perform her job. Laura Callahan, the department's deputy chief information officer, was placed on paid leave in June while officials investigate her academic credentials. The advanced degrees she lists on her resume are from a diploma mill. Callahan's assistant, Jim Shepard, says she is still out on leave and has not been fired. However, sources say she was denied Top Secret clearance and is appealing the decision. Callahan's lawyer did not...
  • Clinton has been burying emails since she was First Lady

    While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal recordkeeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a government position. As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive White House e-mails, known internally as “Project X.” In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server. The massive hole...

    In case you missed it over the weekend, National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes admitted in a lengthy New York Times Magazine profile that the Obama administration used the media to manipulate and lie to the American people about the nuclear deal with Iran. Here is one of the lies pushed by the administration, which David Reaboi highlighted yesterday at The Federalist. First, the lies and the denials about the negotiations. It took months before a few dogged journalists started to ask questions about the talks Obama officials were engaged in with Ahmadinejad’s regime. In February 2013, then-State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland...

    The director of State Department press relations told reporters Tuesday that a glitch was likely responsible for the mysterious disappearance of a portion of video from a press briefing in 2013 that reportedly shows the Obama administration deceiving the media and public to sell the Iran nuclear deal. Elizabeth Trudeau was responding to a story that Fox News’ James Rosen reported the night before on how the administration had campaigned extensively to deceive the media and the American people about key aspects of the Iran agreement. In his report, Rosen said he just learned that video from the State Department’s...

    How Apple's music services all work is a little confusing, but in no way is the company interested in getting rid of your music library. Credit: Thinkstock A blog post has been making the rounds since Thursday, saying that Apple Stole My Music. James Pinkstone, writing on his company’s blog, tells a tale of losing 122GB of music files because of Apple Music. Plenty of websites are trumpeting this story, saying that Apple Music is the big bad wolf. But I’m afraid that isn’t the case.The author of this blog post begins by citing a bit of a conversation he...
  • More than 3,000 Washington prisoners mistakenly freed early (computer glitch)

    OLYMPIA, Wash. - More than 3,000 prisoners in Washington have been mistakenly released early since 2002 because of an error by the state's Department of Corrections that resulted in wrongly calculated sentences for about 3 percent of the prison population. At a news conference announcing the error Tuesday, Gov. Jay Inslee said he has ordered immediate steps to correct the longstanding computer glitch. "Frankly, it is maddening," Inslee said. Authorities say a July 2002 state Supreme Court ruling required the Corrections Department to apply good-behavior credits earned in county jail to state prison sentences. However, the programming fix ended up...

    If you are near a gas station in metro Milwaukee, you might want to stop and fill up. Right now. As oil prices have hit their lowest price in 6 years this week, gasoline prices in Milwaukee are soaring. Wholesale gasoline prices are now higher than retail prices in the upper Midwest and that means prices at the pump will jump in coming days. "It's going to be very ugly," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at gasbuddy.com. The wholesale price of gasoline has risen 90 cents since Monday. As of Wednesday morning, the wholesale price was higher than retail,...

    For the second time in five weeks mighty United Airlines, the world’s second-largest carrier, has been brought to its knees by a “technical glitch” that promises to impact more than half-a-million travelers today at the height of the busiest travel period of the year. The Federal Aviation Administration lifted its full ground stop order at around 9:20 a.m. ET. A ground stop order means that no aircraft – in this case no aircraft flown by United and its United Express EXPR +0.05% regional airline partners – can take off. United flights already in the air were allowed to continue but...

    Complete Headline: Obama administration sent 800,000 people the wrong Obamacare subsidy information – and 50,000 will need to file their 2014 taxes a SECOND time The Obama administration said on Friday that the Internal Revenue Service sent incorrect tax information to about 800,000 Americans who enrolled in new medical insurance plans through Healthcare.gov. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Health and Human Services subagency that handles Obamacare, sent them forms that contained an error which would cause them to miscalculate the government subsidy for their insurance policies. That, the administration admitted, would change the amount of their tax...

    Kevin McCarthy of Thousand Oaks, California, was surprised last spring, when he learned his family doctor of 14 years could not accept the Blue Shield insurance he'd purchased under Obamacare. He said he was "outraged" because when he was shopping for his policy, Blue Shield confirmed his doctor was covered. "We were duped," McCarthy said. "Hoodwinked is another good term." Here's what happened. Insurance companies -- to save money -- are quietly selling what are called "narrow networks." They sharply restrict the number of doctors and hospitals people can see. In some cases, people may be limited to 30 percent...

    If you got health coverage through President Barack Obama's law this year, you'll need a new form from your insurance exchange before you can file your tax return next spring. Some tax professionals are worried that federal and state insurance marketplaces won't be able to get those forms out in time. That could lead to delayed tax refunds for millions of consumers.
