    It started innocently enough: Andreas H. Koertel, 46, was pulled over in a traffic stop. Then things got hairy in hurry. Turns out Koertel, a German national, was in possession of meth and illegal weapons, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, so he was booked into jail on multiple charges, KXTV-TV reports.

    Carly Fiorina: Ted Cruz can stop Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton I ran for president because I believe it is time to take our country back from Washington and restore power to the people. I still believe that. In fact, I believe it more than ever. It is time to challenge and reform the system that has put too much economic and political power in the hands of too few. It is time to put a real constitutional conservative in the White House. My husband and I live in Virginia where we had a primary recently. While my own name...

    Carly Fiorina is ending her bid for the Republican presidential nomination. The former Hewlett-Packard executive announced the decision on Facebook Wednesday after finishing seventh in New Hampshire's primary. "While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them," Fiorina said in a post. The writing was on the wall after she didn't qualify for last week's ABC News debate, and a last-minute campaign on her behalf to allow her in was unsuccessful. Fiorina's...

    Some who know Fiorina’s business background believe her ascension to the White House would be ruinous for the nation. One candidate has seen her fortunes rise following a stand-out debate performance last week: Carly Fiorina. The former corporate leader shot up from well back in the polls to second place in the pack, with 15 percent support, while Trump’s lead fell from 32 to 24 percent. However, some who know Fiorina’s business background believe her ascension to the White House would be ruinous for the nation.

    HP's plan to shift workers off its payroll and have them work as contract workers for a partner named Ciber isn't going exactly as planned, multiple sources have told Business Insider. HP didn't actually follow through with its threat to fire all of the employees if they refused the new job offer. A few of the employees who refused the new offer are now being asked to stay on at HP as if no layoff ultimatum ever happened. To recap: HP told several hundred employees in its Enterprise Services division, HP's consulting unit, that HP had lined up a new...

    So as CNN ginned up its debate format to boost its ad rates from $5,000 per spot to a dense $200,000 and more, the three hour descent into the successful male versus female, exercise in futility played out. Here is how another female saw the stage show. Donald Trump began his campaign with a theme of “Competence,” rather than “Political Correctness” and that is what we saw. Trump ran the table. He was split-screened with the other speakers, thereby increasing his optics meter. We saw The Donald in front of Ronald Reagan’s Air Force 1. We saw him respond with...

    Earlier this week, someone who had read my piece about Donald Trump’s less-than-A+ record in business asked me if I’d write something about Carly Fiorina’s business record and why I think despite Democratic and Trumpette knocks on it, it actually indicates that she would do a good job as President (full disclosure: I have worked with and consulted for Carly Fiorina in the past). With that in mind, here goes nothing.First, let’s start broad brush, with the basic recognition that Carly Fiorina is a self-made woman. Unlike Trump, she comes from a family of academic types, not business people—let alone...

    One week after 9/11, Michael Hayden, the director of the National Security Agency, the electronic surveillance arm of the U.S. government, had a long list of problems. High on the list was the fact that the NSA needed a ton of new high-tech equipment, particularly servers, right away, to handle a vastly expanded, critically important workload. Hayden called up the CEO of Hewlett Packard, Carly Fiorina. “HP made precisely the equipment we needed, and we needed in bulk,” says Robert Deitz, who was general counsel at the NSA from 1998 to 2006. Deitz recalls that a tractor-trailer full of HP...

    And? CNN said Tuesday it is amending the criteria for candidates to qualify for its Republican presidential debate later this month, possibly clearing the way for contender Carly Fiorina to be part of the main-stage debate. Fiorina has battled for weeks to be included in the Sept. 16 main event, arguing that CNN was relying too heavily on old polling to determine which candidates would make the top-10 cut. Frankly, I don't get it. What does Fiorina bring to the party? She was a disaster at HP; not only did she get fired by the board the company lost half...

    She’s running for President on her track record as CEO of HP, but if that’s the case, Fiorina might want to rethink her strategy. -snip- Still, with a scant 5% of Fortune 500 firms employing women CEOs, her leadership of a huge global enterprise in the macho field of IT is impressive. But how did she do? The answer in short is: Pretty badly. In 1999, a dysfunctional HP board committee, filled with its own poisoned politics, hired her with no CEO experience, nor interviews with the full board. Fired in 2005, after six years in office, several leading publications...

    “I come from a world outside of politics, where track records and accomplishments count.” Those were the words of Carly Fiorina, a Republican candidate for president, earlier this year. Readers of the business pages know her as the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard. For much of this early campaign season, in the crowded field of Republican candidates, Mrs. Fiorina didn’t look as if she had much of a chance at the White House. But recently, in the afterglow of her impressive performance in the first Republican debate, Mrs. Fiorina has begun to make significant gains in the polls that have...

    Dirty money from the US computer company Hewlett-Packard helped Russia’s autocrat Vladimir Putin secure his power. The Leipzig State Court will soon make a ruling on a large corruption case. The prosecution accuses the US computer company Hewlett-Packard of paying at least 7.6 million Euros in bribes to Russian officials to secure a dominant position in the Russian market. But in reality, the documents reveal a much greater scandal. It was Vladimir Putin who enabled this corruption scandal. The bribe money from HP ensured Putin the loyalty of a clique of state attorneys. And helped him take control of the...

    She’s running for President on her track record as CEO of HP, but if that’s the case, Fiorina might want to rethink her strategy. Fresh from strong debate quips, Carly Fiorina has improbably raced from 14th to fifth place in the New Hampshire Republican primary polls and now enjoys a 70% favorability rating in Iowa, ahead of such career politicians as Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, George Pataki, and Lindsay Graham. It is time to take her candidacy seriously and examine her leadership record. Having never held elected office, she has staked her...

    We have never succeeded in shrinking the size of government," Republican Carly Fiorina told "Fox News Sunday." She said she would do it. "We have a bunch of baby boomers who are going to retire out of the federal government over the next five to six years. I will not replace a single one," she promised. "And yes, we need to actually get about the business of reducing the size, the power, the cost, complexity and corruption of this federal government." Host Chris Wallace played a video clip of Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) criticizing Fiorina for...

    This entire phony genre of journalism is now well beyond embarrassing. Do you know what a fact is? That’s easy. Of course you do. Fact is an objective truth not subject to interpretation or dispute. Water is liquid if it’s above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s a fact. Thursday comes after Wednesday. That’s a fact. The address of the White House is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. People who deal in actual facts can recognize that an assertion is either fact-based or its not. It’s really not that complicated. That’s for normal people who understand what a fact is. But there are other...

    Carly Fiorina’s nearly six-year reign at Hewlett-Packard Co. ended abruptly Wednesday as board members forced her out, disappointed by her inability to transform a plodding technology giant dominated by printer sales into a more nimble innovator. H-P’s stock, which has gone nowhere for two years and is down two-thirds from its peak in 2000, rose almost 7 percent after earlier soaring almost 11 percent on the news of her ouster. Board members said they fired the chief executive — perhaps corporate America’s most influential woman — because Fiorina failed to slash costs and boost revenue as quickly as directors had...

    The biggest scandal in today's release of Hewlett Packard Q1 earnings was not that, just as the Nasdaq is knocking on 5000's door, it reported revenues of $26.8 billion missing consensus expectations of $27.3 billion, while beating non-GAAP EPS by 1 cent to $0.92 (up from $0.90 a year ago) entirely due to a massive reduction in outstanding stock and some truly gargantuan non-GAAP addbacks (GAAP EPS declined from $0.74 a year ago to $0.73) pushing the stock down 7% after hours. The biggest scandal was the company announced that having cut 44,000 workers so far, it will cut...

    Carly Fiorina is gearing up to run for president. National Journal reports she already has begun hiring staff. Fiorina has run for office only once, as the Republican challenger to Sen. Barbara Boxer of California in 2010 -- and she lost. Still, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO won prime attention by running and losing. She's on "Meet the Press" all the time. She's still rich and still good-looking. (In 2010, Fiorina and husband Frank claimed a combined net worth of $30 million to $120 million.) Insiders think she's probably running for vice president; if Hillary Clinton is the Dems' nominee, the...
