  • Police baffled by couple found dead next to untouched bags of Taco Bell — and not much else

    Cameron and Courtney Hulet were lying on their living room floor when a neighbor saw them. The neighbor didn’t think much of it. She heard moans and figured they were asleep. She closed the front door, which the couple had a habit of leaving open, David Uhl, manager of the southeast Michigan village of Dundee, told The Washington Post. It was Tuesday morning. The neighbor didn’t see the Hulets all day, she told authorities. She went back to check on them later that night. They were still lying next to each other. Taco Bell bags and drinks sat next to them on a table, untouched. The woman had a male friend check on them, Uhl said. Police were called to the apartment shortly before midnight on

  • American hacker Jester warns Russia to stop interfering with U.S. election

    The American vigilante hacker known as Jester (whose signature graphic is shown above) took a swipe at Russia for hacking U.S. sites. The self-described “gray hat” hacker who calls himself “Jester” hacked the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website Friday night. His message: “Stop attacking Americans,” according to CNNMoney. Anyone who visited the Ministry website after the hack first heard the intentionally loud, annoying, attention-demanding dial tone sound that plays just before American emergency broadcast civil alert messages.

  • Navy Chief Petty Officer Jason Finan's death shows the risks of the U.S. role in Iraq

    New details from a U.S. military investigation into Navy Chief Petty Officer Jason Finan's death in Iraq are illustrating the twin risks of a bomb-ridden battlefield and shifting front lines in the campaign to retake the city of Mosul from the Islamic State militant group (ISIS). Finan on Thursday became the first U.S. military casualty in Iraq's offensive to capture the city of 1.5 million people, a highly complex operation that is expected to become the biggest battle fought in Iraq since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. At the time Finan was killed, he was helping troops avoid a roadside bomb he identified while they tried to reposition further back from the fighting—a precaution as ISIS advanced toward Iraqi forces, a top general said on Sunday, disclosing new information about the incident.

  • Trump Surrogates Continue Their Apologist Tour to Election Day

    It’s a thankless job being a Donald Trump surrogate these days. The job fell to campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus this weekend, and both twisted themselves in verbal knots casting the Trump campaign as something other than a foundering ship that’s headed to the bottom. After promising to deliver a “closing argument” in a speech on Saturday in Gettysburg, PA, Trump instead dedicated part of his remarks to promising to sue each of the dozen or so women who have accused him of sexual assault.

  • Eleanor Roosevelt’s ‘mistress’ died heartbroken and alone

    They called each other “darling,” “dear one” and “heart.” They told each other “je t’aime” and “j’adore,” and wrote more than 3,000 letters to one another. “All day I’ve thought of you . . . Oh! I want to put my arms around you, I ache to hold you close,” the normally reserved Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in March of 1933 to her beloved. No, not her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but a brilliant, bourbon-drinking, cigarette-smoking Associated Press reporter named Lorena Hickok, or Hick. Their romance is at the center of Susan Quinn’s engrossing double biography, “Eleanor and Hick: The Love Affair That Shaped a First Lady.” While Quinn is not the first to tell the tale of Eleanor and

  • Tensions high inside 'Jungle' refugee camp as demolition nears

    A large number of police will be on hand to prevent crowd problems. More than 1,000 riot police officers were deployed to the camp Sunday ahead of the closure, an Interior Ministry spokesman told CNN. Horse-mounted police were seen near the camp. "It's very tense because people know that change is coming," Jex told CNN. "There is a real acceptance that the camp is going (away)." The plan is to have the camp completely torn down by December, according to the French Ministry of the Interior. The camp sprawls over about 40 acres of sand dunes once used for landfill, with different nationalities in different sections. Many in "The Jungle" are reluctant to register as refugees in France because their

  • My Visit to the Trump Dump.... Sorry, Trump Tower

    "You land at LaGuardia, you land at Kennedy, you land at LAX, you land at Newark, and you come in from Dubai and Qatar [and] China, you see these incredible airports, and you land―we've become a Third World country," said Trump, around the time that his own building looked like this. Leaving the public garden, I headed to the lower level and passed the Trump Grill, where the door to the pantry was open. Stainless steel appliances are, as Trump would say, the best. They are tremendous. But they are a little more expensive than regular white, so what do you do? Theoretically, you put a stainless-steel sticker sheet over the white and fool someone into thinking they are seeing "the actual best."

  • Forget Duterte. The Philippines loves the United States.

    In the few months he has been in power in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte has seemingly convulsed relations between his country and the United States, a longtime ally and former colonial ruler. He has repeatedly made vulgar comments about America's president and envoy in Manila and, without much warning, threatened to throw out U.S. special forces operating in the country and end annual exercises with the U.S. military. Duterte went one provocative step further on a visit to China this week. “In this venue I announce my separation from the United States," he declared in Beijing's Great Hall of the People. He would go on to suggest that “Americans are loud, sometimes rowdy,” and that
