$20 million donated to viral border wall GoFundMe set to be refunded

Go Fund ME donations to be returnedThe $20 million that have been donated to a GoFundMe page to help fund President Donald Trump's wall along the southern border are going to be refunded.

Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage Jr., who started the campaign, announced on Friday he had formed a non-profit in Florida to receive money from GoFundMe contributions to build the wall himself with a team of officials without the help of the federal government.

"We are better equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border," Kolfage Jr. said in his announcement of the new plan. "Our highly experienced team is highly confident that we can complete significant segments of the wall in less time, and for far less money, than the federal government, while meeting or exceeding all required regulatory, engineering, and environmental specifications."

Navy sub commander relieved of duty for hiring prostitutes in Philippines

USS Bremerton sub commander hired prostitutes

The commander of a Navy submarine was relieved of duty last summer after admitting to investigators that he paid for “female accompaniment” while the boat was in port in the Philippines.

Capt. Travis Zettel was relieved of duty in August following a loss of confidence in his ability to command the fast attack submarine USS Bremerton, which is now tied up in Bremerton for decommissioning.

The incident occurred March 1 while the sub was ported in Subic Bay, according to documents released to the Kitsap Sun under a federal Freedom of Information Act request. NCIS agents interviewed a tipster to the Department of Defense Inspector General’s hotline that Zettel had told him and another sailor at a hotel pool that Zettel had “requested/ordered ten girls to arrive at the hotel.” Later, at dinner, the sailor saw Zettel with around 10 “provocatively dressed females outside the front door of the hotel.”

F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

FBI alarmed by Trump behavior after firing of Comey In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.

The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice.

Blow to low carb diet as landmark study finds high fibre cuts heart disease risk

blow to low carb diets in WHO study

Eating more fibre, found in wholegrain cereals, pasta and bread as well as nuts and pulses, will cut people’s chances of heart disease and early death, according to a landmark review commissioned by the World Health Organization.

The authors of the review, which will inform forthcoming WHO guidelines, say their findings are good news – but incompatible with fashionable low-carb diets.

The research is led by Prof Jim Mann’s team at the University of Otago in New Zealand, who also carried out the major review that informed WHO guidance on curbing sugar in the diet, leading to sugar taxes around the world.

Trump backs away from declaring national emergency to fund border wall

Trump backs off declaring national emergencyDonald Trump has backed away from his threat to declare a national emergency to fund his long-promised border wall, as pressure mounts to find a solution to the three-week impasse that has closed parts of the government, leaving hundreds of thousands of workers without pay.

“We want Congress to do its job,” the president said Friday during a roundtable on border security at the White House. “What we’re not looking to do right now is national emergency.”

Trump’s comments came amid reports that he was consulting White House attorneys and allies about declaring a national emergency, and using presidential powers to take unilateral action to construct the wall over the objections of Congress. He had earlier claimed that his lawyers told him the action would withstand legal scrutiny “100%”.

Congress approves back pay for workers affected by current shutdown, future ones

House of RepresentativesThe House on Friday cleared a bill that would ensure back pay for federal workers missing paychecks as a result of the partial government shutdown, as well as guarantee payment for employees affected by any future closures.
The measure passed with broad bipartisan support, 411-7. All seven votes against the bill came from Republicans.
"On the first day that some of our federal employees will miss their paycheck, Congress is saying and guaranteeing that workers will be paid not only for this shutdown, but God forbid if we have any future ones, that their pay will be guaranteed," Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday.

Syria troop withdrawal under way, says US-led coalition

Syria troop withdrawal has begun

The US-led coalition in Syria has begun withdrawing troops, a military official has said, after days of back and forth over Donald Trump’s surprise announcement of a rapid drawdown of the US presence in the country.

Col Sean Ryan, a spokesman for the US-led coalition fighting Islamic State, said the process of deliberate withdrawal from Syria had started, but declined to comment on specific timetables or movements.

There were no other details, and it was not immediately clear how many vehicles or whether any troop units had withdrawn.

Trump Made $35M Selling Real Estate in 2018: Forbes

Trump made $35 million in 2018

President Trump made $35 million selling real estate in 2018, according to a Friday report from Forbes. Although the day-to-day operations of the Trump Organization have been delegated to two of his sons, Eric and Don Jr., the president continues to own the business, allowing him to collect payments when buildings are sold.

Over half of that windfall came from a single sale in Brooklyn, Forbes notes, when Trump and associates sold a federally subsidized housing complex in Brooklyn for an estimated $900 million. Forbes estimates that Trump pocketed about $20 million from that deal. He also made approximately $5.5 million from selling 36 units of his 64-story tower in Las Vegas.
