*Hackers Used New Weapons to Disrupt Major Websites Across U.S.:
Major websites were inaccessible to people across wide swaths of the United States on Friday after a company that manages crucial parts of the internet’s infrastructure said it was under attack. Users reported sporadic problems reaching several websites, including Twitter
and The New York Times
. The company, Dyn
, whose servers monitor and reroute internet traffic, said it began experiencing what security experts called a distributed denial-of-service attack just after 7 a.m. Reports that many sites were inaccessible started on the East Coast, but spread westward in three waves as the day wore on and into the evening. And in a troubling development, the attack appears to have relied on hundreds of thousands of internet-connected devices like cameras, baby monitors and home routers that have been infected — without their owners’ knowledge — with software that allows hackers to command them to flood a target with overwhelming traffic.

*Biden: I’d Take Trump ‘Behind the Gym’:
A fired-up Joe Biden
went after Donald Trump
on Friday, saying he would take the Republican presidential nominee “behind the gym” if the two were still in high school. The vice president was responding to Trump’s lewd comments in which he bragged about using his celebrity status to sexually assault women.

That’s what I wish.”
*LBN-INVESTIGATES: Anyone remember when Jeh Johnson vowed that our borders weren’t open to illegal immigration, or when President Obama promised that anyone who recently crossed into the U.S. from Mexico wouldn’t be allowed to stay?The lie detector test determined: those were untrue. According to recently released data reviewed by MRCTV, the Department of Homeland released another 52,147 illegal alien kids into the United States in fiscal year 2016, averaging about 149 per day. Processed as “refugees,” these children are in many cases sent to a family member who’s also here illegally. A total of 5,203 kids were released in September alone, based on the numbers ORR released in August. Not only is the year-end number shocking in its size alone, it’s also nearly double the number of kids the administration released in FY2015, when 27,840 unaccompanied minors were sent to sponsors in the United States.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
signed into law the nation’s first bill that would prohibit advertising of illegal units on home sharing sites in the state.

. The new law imposes fines of up to $7,500 per violation for advertising units that do not comport with a 2010 law making home sharing in multifamily units for less than 30 days in New York City illegal.

*LBN-COMMENTARY By Charles Krauthammer: The case against Hillary Clinton could have been written before the recent WikiLeaks and FBI disclosures. But these documents do provide hard textual backup. The most sensational disclosure was the proposed deal between the State Department and the FBI in which the FBI would declassify a Clinton email and State would give the FBI more slots in overseas stations. What made it sensational was the rare appearance in an official account of the phrase “quid pro quo,” which is the currently agreed-upon dividing line between acceptable and unacceptable corruption.
