LBN- Special Report- Monday

*DONE! Huma Abedin says she’s leaving Anthony Weiner:
Huma Abedin announced she is dumping her sexting hubby Anthony Weiner, hours after his latest online dalliances were discovered. “After long painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband,” Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, said in statement. “Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what’s best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”  Abedin and Weiner have been married since 2010 and have a 3-year-old son, Jordan Zain Weiner.

*LBN-INVESTIGATES: The Obama administration isexpected on Monday – a month ahead of schedule – to achieve its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year. As of late Sunday, 9,902 had been resettled in the United States, but more than 200 more are expected to arrive from Jordan and surrounding areas over the next day. U.S. Ambassador to Jordan Alice Wells told reporters the 10,000 target announced by President Obama last September will be reached on Monday. Barring an unlikely last-minute shift, the number of Christians among the 10,000 will be less than half of one percent. Of the 9,902 before Monday’s arrivals, just 47 (0.47 percent) are Christians, according to State Department Refugee Processing Center data.

*Foreign Hackers Hit Two State Electoral Databases:
Foreign hackers broke into two state election databases in recent weeks, according to a restricted FBI warning obtained by Yahoo News. The report comes amid unprecedented concerns that Russian state-sponsored hackers may be seeking to disrupt the November presidential elections. The FBI is now warning election officials across the country to take new steps to enhance the security of their computer systems. An FBI alert, labeled as restricted for “NEED TO KNOW recipients,” disclosed the bureau was investigating intrusions for two state election websites this summer, including one that resulted in the “exfiltration” of voter-registration data. The bulletin does not identify the states in question, but sources told Yahoo News they were Arizona and Illinois. One of the IP addresses listed in the FBI alert has allegedly surfaced before in Russian criminal underground hacker forums. Six states rely entirely on paperless touchscreen voting with no paper ballot backups.

*Weiner Quits Twitter After New Sexts:
Anthony Weiner deleted his Twitter account Monday morning following the revelation of new sexually explicit messages hetraded with a woman other than his wife. LBN reported Sunday night that Weiner, married to Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, sent a picture and messages to a woman on July 31, 2015. One of the images shows Weiner in his underwear with his young son next to him in bed. This is at least the third known instance of Weiner sending sexual messages to women. In 2011, the New York Democrat resigned his seat in Congress after accidentally tweeting a picture of his crotch. In 2013, his bid to become mayor of New York was torpedoed by nude photos he sent to Sydney Leathers. The latter incident is the subject of the new documentary Weiner.

*Doctors: OK to Drop Patients Who Refuse Vaccines:
It is acceptable for doctors to drop patients who refuse vaccinations on non-medical grounds, the American Academy of Pediatrics said Monday in a policy statement. The new position comes as 87 percent of pediatricians said they dealt with parents who did not want their children to be vaccinated—up from 75 percent 10 years ago. The organization said dropping patients due to vaccine hesitance should only be a last resort, and that pediatricians should start touting the advantages of vaccines early on. Many parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated believe that the immunizations cause autism, a theory that has been thoroughly debunked.

*WHO READS LBN? Comedian Lily Tomlin:


  1. The smell of young wine is called an “aroma” while a more mature wine offers a more subtle “bouquet.”
  2. In ancient Greece, a dinner host would take the first sip of wine to assure guests the wine was not poisoned, hence the phrase “drinking to one’s health.” “Toasting” started in ancient Rome when the Romans continued the Greek tradition but started dropping a piece of toasted bread into each wine glass to temper undesirable tastes or excessive acidity.
  3. A “cork-tease” is someone who constantly talks about the wine he or she will open but never does.
  4. Since wine tasting is essentially wine smelling, women tend to be better wine testers because women, particularly of reproductive ages, have a better sense of smell than men.
Drinking moderate amounts of wine may lead to more enjoyable sex for women
  1. An Italian study argues that women who drink two glasses of wine a day have better sex than those who don’t drink at all.
  2. Red wines are red because fermentation extracts color from the grape skins. White wines are not fermented with the skins present.
  3. In the whole of the Biblical Old Testament, only the Book of Jonah has no reference to the vine or wine.
  4. Early Roman women were forbidden to drink wine, and a husband who found his wife drinking was at liberty to kill her. Divorce on the same grounds was last recorded in Rome in 194 B.C.
  5. The world’s oldest bottle of wine dates back to A.D. 325 and was found near the town of Speyer, Germany, inside one of two Roman sarcophaguses. It is on display at the town’s Historisches Museum der Pfalz.
  6. There is increasing scientific evidence that moderate, regular wine drinking can reduce the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and gum disease.

*China’s ‘Jack the Ripper’ Arrested:

Police have arrested a man they believe to be the long-sought murderer dubbed “China’s Jack the Ripper,” for the grisly crimes that are reminiscent of the serial killer in Victorian London who was never caught. Gao Chengyong is accused of raping, killing, and mutilating 11 girls and women over 14 years. The youngest victim was 8 years old. Gao, according to police, cut off the victims’ hands, ears, and breasts. Authorities said test determined the 52-year-old native of western China matched DNA found at the scenes of the killings. He was apprehended in a grocery shop he operates, local news reported Monday. He has allegedly confessed to the crimes. Police said Gao was able to elude capture because he lived in such a small village that he was never fingerprinted for an ID card.

*Mylan to Make Generic Version of EpiPen:
The pharmaceutical company that makes the expensive, life-saving EpiPen—an auto-injector that comes preloaded with anaphylaxis treatment—will launch a generic version of the product in the wake of intense criticism over recent price hikes.Manufacturer Mylan said early Monday that a new generic will cost $300 for a two-pack, which is about half the regular version’s market price. It will be available within the next several weeks. Mylan CEO Heather Bresch called her company’s move “an extraordinary commercial response” to patient anger and frustration over the rising cost of EpiPen. Last week, the drug maker had offered discounts on the shots for lower-income patients and triggered further anger. The company was widely criticized by parents and politicians, including Hillary Clinton, following the latest price rises, which amounted to more than 400 percent over the past 10 years.


*LBN-INVESTIGATES: As of today, at least 110 Republican Leaders won’t vote for Donald Trump. This list includes current and former members of Congress, governors and high-level officials from Republican administrations.

*Renowned Dentist, Dr. Jay Grossman Argues Against Erroneous Claims By The Government On Flossing:
Dr. Jay Grossman,, disputes reports made on August 2, 2016 by the Associated Press on the removal of flossing by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service removal as a recommended practice. The removal from this year’s dietary guidelines comes after the government admits research has not been extensive or reliable enough to deem flossing “effective.”
Dr. Grossman is a Clinical Professor of Dental Medicine at Western University College of Dental Medicine, as well as a lecturer for 21 years at UCLA College of Dentistry. With a mission to provide the finest dental care available using state-of-the-art technology, he claims that the simple act of flossing is in fact effective and beneficial towards oral health.
According to the U.S. Healthy department, “flossing has no proven benefits.” Dr. Grossman argues that this comment is “not only false, it is dangerous and detrimental to the population.” Dr. Grossman believes if people trust the new government guidelines, there will be an increase in gum disease, cavities, and halitosis.
Claims that brushing your teeth are enough are simply not true, according to Dr. Grossman. “A tooth brush removes food and cleans most of the surface area of your tooth, however the only way to remove material between your teeth, is with floss.” Dr. Grossman argues that the effectiveness of flossing can clearly be seen when pieces of food are removed from in between teeth. According to the acclaimed dentist, “if you don’t floss, that food will stay in your mouth, decay and cause tooth and gum damage.”
Considering that only 50% of Americans floss daily, Dr. Grossman warns everyone not to fall into this category due to the, “erroneous and false reports.”
“Floss, it is imperative for your dental health,” states Dr. Grossman.

*LBN-R.I.P.:   ***Former pro-wrestling star and manager Harry Fujiwara—better known by his stage name Mr. Fuji—has died at the age of 82, according to World Wrestling Entertainment. Fujiwara managed famous wrestlers like “Magnificent” Don Muraco, Yokozuna, and George “The Animal” Steele. Fujiwara, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007, was known for his devious tactic of besting opponents by throwing salt in their eyes, small bags of which he kept in his tights.   ***Juan Gabriel, one of Mexico’s most acclaimed singers and composers, died Sunday at his home in Santa Monica, California. He was 66. Family members say the music icon died of a heart attack at around 11:30 a.m. Gabriel, a prolific songwriter, boasted 1,800 songs in his repertoire. He had just performedSaturday to a sold-out crowd at the Inglewood Forum as part of the MeXXico Es Todo tour. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto took to Twitter to express his sadness over the loss, writing, “a voice and a talent that represented Mexico. His music was a legacy to the world. He has gone too soon. May he rest in peace.”

*LBN-COMMENTARY by Lew Samuels: The National Anthem is a part of America and if Colin does not respect it he can move to Russia or North Korea, he my be happier there with their society.  He should be immediately fired by San Francisco and permanently banned from American professional sports.  Time to set examples of anti Americanism within our borders.

*LBN-COMMENTARY by Susan Estrich (Attorney, columnist): I remember, nearly 30 years ago, visiting Palestinian refugee camps where little children had cartoon coloring books in which the Jews were always the villains and thieves. “What happens to those children when they grow up?” I wondered then. I fear that we all know the answer.

*LBN-OVERHEARD:   ***Charlie Sheen may need more help with financial management than anger management. The former “Two and a Half Men” star, 50, has cut his child support payments to ex-wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller in half. The women each previously received $55,000 per month from Sheen, but are now pocketing approximately $25,000. Sources told the site that Mueller, 39, and Richards, 45, agreed to a deal because if they’d actually gone to court, they’d possibly only be granted $10,000 each per month, and that Sheen agreed to grant real estate to both his ex-wives in the settlement — as well as to appear on a reality show with Richards.
