LBN- Special Report- Monday

*FBI Obtains Warrant, Could Take Weeks to Read New Emails:

Law-enforcement officials confirmed to multiple outlets late Sunday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had obtained a warrant to begin reviewing newly discovered emails that may be relevant to the probe of former Secretary of StateHillary Clinton’s private email server. It reportedly could take weeks to scour through around 650,000 emails contained on top Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s estranged husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop, although exact estimates have varied. FBI Director James Comey announced last Friday that the agency had found new emails relating to its probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and subsequent reports have indicated they were recovered as part of the investigation into Weiner’s sexting allegations. Metadata contained on the computer suggest thousands of messages were sent to or from Clinton’s private server. The FBI is also tasked with determining whether some of the emails are duplicates of messages they already reviewed, and whether there is any classified information.

*CRISES! Chicago Has Deadliest Weekend of the Year:

This past weekend was the deadliest in Chicago since the beginning of the year, with 17 people fatally shot and 42 wounded between Friday afternoon and early Monday morning, according to the Chicago Tribune. This weekend’s violence brings the total number of homicides this year to 638, an increase of 217 from this time a year ago. Seven of the 17 people killed were under the age of 20, according to the Tribune, including a middle-school honors student and 17-year-old twin boys.

*Cubs Stay Alive With Game 5 Win:

The 2016 World Series will head back to Cleveland after theChicago Cubs won a close Game 5 over the Indians, by a score of 3-2. Cubs starter Jon Lester threw six solid innings, keeping the Indians to two runs, before closer Aroldis Chapman went long for 2⅔ innings, striking out four and giving up only one hit, keeping Cleveland from tying the game and potentially winning the series. Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant’s fourth-inning home run began a three-run outburst that inning, setting Chicago’s lead they kept the rest of the game. The Fall Classic will head back to Progressive Field for Game 6 on Tuesday evening, with Chicago’s Jake Arrietafacing Josh Tomlin of the Indians.


*21 Million Election Votes Cast So Far Says Media Expert:

At least 21 million Americans have already cast their ballots for the 2016 election so far, with Democrats outperforming Republicans in most areas according to media expert and author Michael Levine ( A spot of weakness for Clinton, though, was African-American voters in North Carolina, who have not quite voted at the same level as they did in the 2012 race. Still, Democrats had a wide lead in that state, with 43 percent to the GOP’s 31 percent. According to Levine “most of the Democratic gains this year are owed to high turnout among Hispanic voters, who have in the past tended to wait until later to vote”.

*Now ISIS hides bombs inside teddy bears and toy trucks: 

In the war-ravaged town of Mosul, a teddy bear or truck is a rare treasure to a child. But these innocent-looking toys are actually the trigger for sinister booby traps that detonate as soon as they are touched. The ploy marks a sickening new low for Islamic State, who currently hold Iraq’s second largest city, as they can only be intended to target children. Adults would walk straight past them. These and other cunningly disguised improvised explosive devices (IEDs) have been put on display at a training centre for locally-trained bomb disposal experts as 40,000 soldiers, state-sanctioned militia members and other fighters prepare to encircle Mosul to cut off IS forces from outside help.

*Abortions by Pill Now Rival Surgery:

New data show American women are now undergoing medication abortions nearly as often as surgical abortions, which, according to Reuters, has marked a turning point for the procedure in the United States. Restricted access to surgical abortions and innovative efforts to dispense prescription medications have led to the new approach. Forty-three percent of pregnancy terminations at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country used medication in 2014. In 2010, that percentage was 35. Among states with few or no restrictions, such as Michigan, that percentage stood at 55 percent. In Iowa, it’s 64 percent. The prescription medications used to induce abortions were approved by the FDA in the U.S. 16 years ago, but lawmakers in several states have put many restrictions on their use. Nationwide, there has been a decline in women seeking abortions.

*LBN-INVESTIGATES: Based on latest combine polls, Hillary Clinton has a 90% chance to win.

*JEWS NOT WANTED: A group of Israeli tourists looking for board while planning a trip to Germany next summer were shocked after a guesthouse in the southwestern region of Baden-Württemberg last week urged them to cancel their reservation due to their nationality. While planning a vacation for next August, the four Israeli families reserved lodging at the Mattenhof guesthouse in the Black Forest town of Zell am Harmersbach, explained one of the party’s members, Igor Tsehansky. However, shortly after confirming the reservation, the administrators of the guesthouse contacted the Israelis with a slew of messages and notified them that they should cancel the booking. Tsehansky said that he and his friends received the German-language notice less than week after making the arrangements.  “We don’t Want have Guests from Israel, because our apartments are Not for them [sic]. Please cancel the Booking,” read a Google translated message that Tsehansky posted to Facebook.

*LBN-BUSINESS INSIDER:   ***The total value of American imports and exports fell by more than $200 billion last year. Through the first nine months of 2016, trade fell by an additional $470 billion. It is the first time since World War II that trade with other nations has declined during a period of economic growth.   ***General Electric said on Monday that it would combine its oil and gas business with Baker Hughes, looking to increase its scale to battle the effects of a prolonged slump in oil prices that has eaten into results and prompted job cuts across the petroleum sector. The new company, which G.E. referred to as the “new” Baker Hughes, would be one of the world’s largest providers of equipment, technology and services to the oil and gas industry. In 2015, the businesses had $32 billion in revenue, and operations in more than 120 countries. It also would be better able to compete with Schlumberger and other oil services companies.

*LBN-HEALTH WATCH: Is butter, along with other sources of saturated fats, back on the table, as many have recently claimed? It is. Just not in the quantities the meat, dairy and fast-food industries might have you ingest. Unless you have a medical condition that dictates otherwise, there’s no reason to cut anything – not butter, ice cream or Porterhouse steak — completely from your diet as long as you mainly eat plant-based foods (vegetables, fruits and whole grains), lean animal protein and fish and don’t go overboard on foods rich in saturated fats that can cause harm in excess. That’s the conclusion of the best available evidence reviewed for maximizing the health of body and brain and enjoying a long life.

*Billy Bush’s wife is furious about that Donald Trump tape: 

Billy Bush
’s “locker room talk” with Donald Trump continues to haunt him. NBC fired him over the leaked tape, and sources say his wife is even more angry than his former bosses.“Billy Bush’s wife, Sydney Davis, was furious about the tape. Not just because of what was said, but because he was stupid enough to put himself in that position. It wasn’t just the . . . vile talk, it’s because he insisted the woman hug him and Trump. It was creepy. She was so furious that she refused to speak with him for a while — and she’s still furious. They are having marriage problems. He didn’t apologize to her for the embarrassment he caused in his statement. And she hasn’t released a statement at all,” an NBC insider told us.
