RUMOUR: Breitbart to release whistleblower name


Goose smashes through taxi window (in Radford, UK)


Police in Radford said a taxi driver got a major surprise when a goose smashed through a window and landed in the back of their cab.

Long-term care insurance, worth it ?

Yes, I know I need to also consult with a financial advisor on this.

I was thinking of buying it but wow, at my age (61) it's pretty expensive and only for 5 years maximum, at best, from what I've seen.

What do you know about LTC insurance ? Thank you for your help!


$50K reward offered to out Trump whistleblower


(yes I know the WE is right wing but I cannot find this anywhere else yet)

Two Trump supporters are offering a $50,000 reward for information about the national security whistleblower at the center of the Ukraine phone affair.

Controversial conservatives Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl said they would pay the money for “information relating to the identity of the ‘Trump Whistleblower.’”

The New York Times on Thursday reported that the whistleblower works at the CIA and was stationed in the White House when the call was made.

The duo have said their goal is to provide full transparency on the issue in which the administration has already released the transcript of the July 25 call and the inspector general’s report on it.

It was the NY Fed's first such rescue operation in a decade, the last occurring in late 2008.

"It's unprecedented, at least in the post-crisis era," said Mark Cabana, rates strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

In full: Boris Johnson interview from Luxembourg with BBC's Laura Kuenssberg


The BBC's Laura Kuenssberg sat down for an interview with Prime Minister Boris Johnson after his meeting with the European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker.

Here is the full transcript of what they said.

Laura Kuenssberg: You've just been with [European Commission president] Jean-Claude Juncker.

Do you feel you've made any progress since seeing him. I mean he could be the deal maker?

Boris Johnson: Yes. I mean obviously I've talked to him several times since becoming prime minister, but he's... I've known Jean-Claude for many, many years and he is a very, highly, highly intelligent guy and I think that he would like to get a deal if we possibly can, but clearly it's going to take some work.
