LBN- Special Report- Monday

*Chelsea bomb suspect caught after shootout with cops: 
A 28-year-old Afghani native wanted in connection with blasts in Manhattan and New Jersey that left 29 wounded has been caught after shooting at a police officer in New Jersey, according to a report. Ahmad Khan Rahami was arrested after firing at the cop in Linden. Rahami, whose fingerprint was found on an unexploded device, was hunted in connection with the explosions that sparked fears of a local terror cell, according to federal officials. Ahmad Khan Rahami was wounded in a shootout with police before his capture in Linden, New Jersey. Video showed the bloodied Rahami, his right shoulder bandaged, taken away in an ambulance in Linden, New Jersey. One officer was shot in the vest and one in the hand during the shootout, the mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey, said. Investigators identified Rahami on Sunday afternoon using the cell phone on a pressure cooker device found in Manhattan and a fingerprint, a law enforcement official said.

*OOPS? —  DHS Mistakenly Gave Citizenship to 858 Immigrants:
The Department of Homeland Security mistakenly granted U.S.citizenship to 858 immigrants who were supposed to be deported, according to an internal audit. The immigrants were found to have used different names or dates of birth—items that were not noticed because their fingerprints were not in a government database, because they were still on paper files and not part of a computer check. The individuals came from countries that pose a national-security risk to the U.S., or those which are routine hotbeds of immigration fraud, the auditor reported. Officials don’t believe the flap is part of a larger problem within the government. An additional 953 people who were scheduled to be deported were also mistakenly naturalized, according to the inspector general’s report.

*Clinton on Attacks: Banning Entire Religion Won’t Work:

At a press conference Monday morning, Hillary Clintonexpressed solidarity with law-enforcement officials attempting to track down 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahimi, the man wanted in connection with bombings in Manhattan and New Jersey. The Democratic presidential nominee also took the opportunity to hit her opponent, Donald Trump, for his calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. “There are millions of law-abiding, peaceful Muslim Americans,” Clinton said, calling for a more advanced visa system. “So let’s not get diverted or distracted by the kind of campaign rhetoric we hear coming from the other side. This is a serious challenge. We are well-equipped to meet it. And we can do so in keeping with smart law enforcement, good intelligence, and in concert with our values.”

*Obama, Keen to Push Israeli-Palestinian Peace, Will Meet With Netanyahu: 
President Obama arrived in New York City on Sunday evening for three days that will mix election-year politics with a farewell to the world stage at the United Nations. But the visit comes against a suddenly tense backdrop, after a powerful explosion rocked a Manhattan street and a man claiming fealty to the Islamic State stabbed several people in aMinnesota shopping mall. The president’s diplomatic schedule also got more complicated. The White House announced Sunday that he would hold meetings at the United Nations with leaders from Israel and China. Both will be closely watched for signs of friction in relationships that have been marked by tension during Mr. Obama’s tenure. On Wednesday, he is scheduled to confer with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel at a time when he is weighing whether to propose his own framework for a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians over Mr. Netanyahu’s objections. The two leaders have clashed repeatedly over the Iran nuclear agreement and Mr. Obama’s pursuit of Middle East peace.

*Jimmy Fallon on Trump Episode Criticism: I’m Never Mean to Guests:
Jimmy Fallon has been reluctant to discuss the widespread criticism he received from critics and commentators following his silly and mostly-substance-free sit-down with Donald Trump last week. But cornered by a cameraman from TMZ after the Emmy Awards on Sunday, the Tonight Show host addressed the issue for the first time. First, Fallon said he cleared the bit where he mussed Trump’s hair with the candidate before he did it, because he’s not “one of those gotcha people.” Then, on the suggestion that he went “too soft” on Trump with his question, Fallon shook his head and asked, “Have you seen my show? I’m never too hard on anyone.” Asked which candidate will be better at defending New York after attacks like the one that occurred over the weekend, all Fallon would say is “get out there and vote.” Noting that he will host Hillary Clinton on the Tonight Show Monday night—in a pre-taped interview—Fallon added: “We’ll do something fun with her, too.”

*DID YOU KNOW? Did you know that (12) members of the White House staff read LBN daily?

*Secret Service Protecting Ivanka Trump:
The United States Secret Service has begun protecting Ivanka Trump as of Monday morning, following a weekend of explosions and attempted plots in New York City and New Jersey. It is unclear if there was a specific threat against Donald Trump’s eldest daughter that led agents to begin tailing her, or if the measure was purely precautionary.

*WHO READS LBN? Marketing Expert, Craig Valine:

*‘Game of Thrones’ Breaks Emmy Record:
HBO’s fantasy saga Game of Thrones and comedy Veep swept the Emmy Awards on Sunday, with Thrones becoming the most honored prime-time TV series in history with a cumulative 38 trophies. The show bested Frasier by one award after it claimed 12 honors on Sunday in Los Angeles. Veep nabbed the award for best comedy series. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the show’s star, grabbed her own sixth Emmy as best comedy actress. For drama awards, Rami Malek of Mr. Robot and Tatiana Maslanyof Orphan Black both earned trophies.

*LBN-SEE IT: Mischa Barton is in a dark downward spiral, say alarmed friends who’ve talked to sources and things seemed even worse on Emmy Night. As her fellow actresses received acclaim, sources say Mischa walk the streets of Los Angeles and winding up in a tattoo parlor.

*LBN-SPOTLIGHT: Shields and Brooks on Trump’s ‘birther’ lie:

*LBN-INVESTIGATES: For many, the art of seduction starts with dimming the lights. But a new study suggests that bright light may help men with flagging sex drives to shine in bed. Exposure to bright light – similar to daylight – boosts levels of the male hormone testosterone and can triple sexual satisfaction, the research found. Low sexual desire affects significant numbers of men after the age of 40. According to some studies, up to a quarter of men report problems depending on age and other factors. Because sexual interest varies with the seasons, scientists have suspected that it might be influenced by ambient light levels.

*LBN-R.I.P.:   ***James Stacy, who played a gunslinging drifter on the television western “Lancer” and, after losing an arm and a leg in a 1973 motorcycle accident, turned in memorable performances in specialized roles, died on Sept. 9 in Ventura, Calif. He was 79. The cause was anaphylactic shock after having received antibiotics, said his fiancée, Antigoni Tsamparlis.

*LBN-COMMENTARY by Kevin Fallon: “The only thing we value more than diversity is congratulating ourselves on how much we value diversity.” And so Jimmy Kimmel opened the Emmy Awards, offering a tongue-in-cheek critique on how self-congratulatory the television industry has become for its well-timed rewarding of a diverse slate of performers and creators. Airing a little more than half a year after the Oscars, which famously embarrassed Hollywood while exposing our culture’s institutionalized racial biases, failed to nominate a single actor of color for the second year in a row, the Emmy Awards arrived Sunday night with a record number of diverse nominees.

*LBN-COMMENTARY By Zuhdi Jasser: Last weekend marked the fifteenth anniversary of the tragic attacks of 9/11/2001 – anattack that changed the course of the world forever. Since that horrific day, countries around the world – chiefly my country of the United States – have found themselves in what seems like an endless war against various protean forms of radical Islam, whether or not they want to name the enemy for what it is. While our conflict with radical Islam did not begin on 9/11 (the United States and much of the world had been plagued by radical Islam for many years before that day), there is no denying the history-changing ramifications of those attacks – both in terms of war and geopolitics as well as in the hearts and minds of individuals worldwide, who continue to be challenged by the question of Islamism, or political, radical Islam.

*LBN-CURRENTLY READING: Criminal Attorney, Vincent Imhoff ( is currently reading: I am reading “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman
( I just completed the first chapter.  So far, the young girl is seven, “different” and her best friend is her storytelling Grandmother.  As the book opens the Grandmother has passed away and the main character is explaining her idiosyncrasies as well as those of her Grandmother’s.  It is a fun read.  I am looking forward to the story developing and I am trying to imagine the stories the Grandmother told this young girl and how she interprets them. I am at that point of the novel where the young girl has her instructions, but has not made a move on them yet.  I am eagerly awaiting the story’s unfolding.

*LBN-COMMENTARY by Paul Krugman: Does it make sense to vote for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president? Sure, as long as you believe two things. First, you have to believe that it makes no difference at all whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump moves into the White House — because one of them will. Second, you have to believe that America will be better off in the long run if we eliminate environmental regulation, abolish the income tax, do away with public schools, and dismantle Social Security and Medicare — which is what the Libertarian platform calls for. But do 29 percent of Americans between 18 and 34 believe these things? I doubt it. Yet that, according to a recent Quinnipiac poll, is the share of millennial voters who say that they would vote for Mr. Johnson if the election took place now. And the preponderance of young Americans who say they’ll back Mr. Johnson or Jill Stein, the Green Party nominee, appear to be citizens who would support Mrs. Clinton in a two-way race; including the minor party candidates cuts her margin among young voters from 21 points to just 5.
