JULY 4 TH, 2018
After 16 years of bringing you fearless independent DAILY (7 days a week, 365 days a year) news and information, the time has come to change both the format and delivery rate of LBN not the mention its name.
Starting Wednesday, July 4th, 2018, LBN Elert will officially begin with a BANG by changing its name to LBN Examiner. It also changes its circulation schedule to weekly instead of daily. If you’re already a loyal LBN subscriber, don’t worry about not being included. You are still on the list!
*Detective didn’t believe alleged newsroom shooter was a threat before attack:
A Maryland detective determined that suspected Capital Gazette newsroom shooter Jarrod Ramos wasn’t a threat, years before the alleged gunman opened fire on its staffers. When the now-retired editor and publisher of the Annandale daily paper Thomas Marquadt called the cops on Jarrod Ramos in 2013 – a detective investigated and said he didn’t believe the accused killer was dangerous, Anne ArundelCounty Police Chief Timothy Altomare said on Friday. The detective, Michael Praley, said in a report at the time that he “did not believe Mr. Ramos was a threat to employees” at the paper, noting that Ramos hadn’t tried to get into the building and hadn’t sent “direct, threatening correspondence.” Ramos, 38, who filed a defamation lawsuit against the paper in 2012 for an article about him pleading guilty to harassing a woman — had been firing off threatening tweets aimed at the Gazette and its journalists.
*Trump ally Giuliani says end is near for Iran’s rulers:
U.S. President Donald Trump will suffocate Iran’s “dictatorial ayatollahs”, his close ally Rudy Giuliani said on Saturday, suggesting his move to re-impose sanctions was aimed squarely at regime change. The former New York mayor who is now Trump’s personal lawyer, was addressing a conference of the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an umbrella bloc of opposition groups in exile that seek an end to Shi’ite Muslim clerical rule in Iran. “I can’t speak for the president, but it sure sounds like he doesn’t think there is much of a chance of a change in behavior unless there is a change in people and philosophy,” Giuliani told Reuters in an interview.

All eyes are on James and Kawhi Leonard, who are both reportedly interested in the Los Angeles Lakers, while news about two other big-name stars has already shaken up the N.B.A. The latest reports have Paul George re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder on a — very surprising — four-year $137 million deal.
