Flynn ally sought help from 'dark web' in covert Clinton email investigation

Flynn ally sought help from dark web

A close associate of Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn arranged a covert investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, and through intermediaries turned to a person with knowledge of the “dark web” for help.

Flynn, a retired three-star general who led chants of “lock her up” at last year’s Republican national convention, is a central figure in the FBI’s investigation into whether the Kremlin worked with the Trump campaign to sway the US election.

Like Agent Orange before, burn pits sicken new generation of veterans

Military burn pitsD.J. Reyes served as a top Army intelligence officer in combat zones across Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Those were long days, long nights, a lot of stress, a horrible environment," Reyes said. "But I had a mission to do."

When he retired, a doctor found scar tissue on his lungs, evidence of long-term respiratory problems.

Now Reyes is one of nearly 120,000 people who have registered with the Department of Veterans Affairs because of health problems they blame on their exposure to burn pits — the military's crude, low-tech method for disposing of trash in war zones.

Trump will scrap critical Obamacare subsidy

Obamacare being killed by TrumpPresident Donald Trump plans to cut off critical subsidy payments to insurers selling Obamacare coverage, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The decision to end the payments, worth an estimated $7 billion this year, marks Trump's most aggressive move yet to dismantle Obamacare after months of failed GOP repeal efforts on Capitol Hill. The move is likely to draw lawsuits and may put pressure on Congress to appropriate funding for the subsidies, which help insurers reduce out-of-pocket costs for low-income Obamacare customers.

Mass hysteria may explain 'sonic attacks' in Cuba, say top neurologists

Sonic attacks in Cuba may be mass hysteria:neurologistsThe blaring, grinding noise jolted the American diplomat from his bed in a Havana hotel. He moved just a few feet, and there was silence. He climbed back into bed. Inexplicably, the agonizing sound hit him again. It was as if he’d walked through some invisible wall cutting straight through his room.

Soon came the hearing loss, and the speech problems, symptoms both similar and altogether different from others among at least 21 US victims in an astonishing international mystery still unfolding in Cuba. The top US diplomat has called them “health attacks”.

Airplane biofuels destroying rain forests

A new plan to accelerate production of biofuels for passenger planes has drawn stinging criticism from environmentalists who argue that most of the world’s rainforests might have to be cleared to produce the necessary crops.

At this Florida juvenile justice program, staffers set up

Palm Beach Juvneile Corrections Facility

The allegations were straight out of Oliver Twist: Teens said there were maggots in the food — and barely enough of it. The youths wore threadbare and filthy clothing. They lacked soap, toothpaste, deodorant, socks. The medical care was lousy, toilets overflowed and the buildings were crumbling. Officers choked and punched them.

For discipline and diversion, workers organized fights among the detainees. And sometimes they bet on them.

The delinquent boys came and went. But Palm Beach Juvenile Correctional Facility remained.

Is Sean Hannity the Greatest Threat to John Kelly’s Job?

Sean Hannity biggest threat to John KellyJohn Kelly’s constant battle to contain Donald Trump remains a Sisyphean task. The harder the White House chief of staff tries to control the flow of information reaching the president—limiting his exposure to unsolicited opinions, curating the printouts he receives from staffers, and planning to bar him from excessive mingling at Mar-a-Lago, which he’s been known to convert into an open-air Situation Room—the more the president reportedly chafes, making late-night calls to allies from the East Wing and sending inflammatory early morning tweets.

Among the most powerful outside advisers to the president, the Los Angeles Times reports, is Fox News host Sean Hannity—a longtime Trump cheerleader who has apparently managed to circumvent Kelly, inserting his own clamorous opinions into an already chaotic White House.
