Trump Accused of Being a ‘War Criminal’ Who Committed ‘Homicidal Negligence’ by Watergate Journalist

Carl Bernstein, a journalist, best known for covering former President Richard Nixon during the Watergate investigation, has now accused former President Donald Trump of being a “war criminal.”

Bernstein is a frequent Trump critic who exposed the Watergate affair in the early 1970s, accused Trump of “delusional madness” that is “on a scale and a scope we have never experienced in an American president in our history.”

“I think we need to calmly step back and maybe look at Trump in a different context,” he said on CNN’s Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter Sunday. “He is our own American war criminal of a kind we’ve never experienced before.”

Bernstein asserted that Trump “transcends the political,” prioritizing his own electoral future in a manner “so extraordinary in our history.”

“I think what we’re talking about, Trump’s crimes as an American war criminal in his own country that he had perpetrated upon our people, including the tens of thousands of people who died because of his homicidal negligence in the pandemic, putting his own electoral interest above the health of our people when they were slaughtered during this pandemic,” he continued. “Looking at his actions in terms of fomenting a coup in which to hold on to office in which the head of the American military, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff has now compared Trump — not the press, not reporters comparing Trump to Hitler — but rather the head of the American military comparing him and his movement to brownshirts, to the Reichstag fire. This is a huge wake-up call to this country when Gen. Milley, the head of the American military, has said this.”

Trump was also accused of downplaying the impact of COVID-19, which, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, resulted in over 600,000 deaths in the United States. Supporters of the former president have contended that mandating masks and enforcing strict COVID-19 standards harmed economic recovery efforts and infringed on individual liberty.

On Jan. 6, the then-president addressed a rally dubbed “Stop the Steal,” in which he claimed that widespread voter fraud took place during the 2020 presidential election. The rally devolved into a mob assault on the Capitol, which is currently being investigated and prosecuted.


Britney Spears’ Ex-Husband Reveals Their Marriage was Consummated in the Back of a Limo in Las Vegas

Jason Alexander, Britney Spears’ childhood boyfriend and ex-husband, revealed exclusively to the Daily Mail on Sunday about his infamously brief marriage to the singer. Jason revealed that he and Britney consummated their marriage in the back of a limo following their shotgun wedding.

Britney checked into a Las Vegas hotel under the nickname Alotta Warmheart during the height of her career in 2004. She then met Jason, a childhood friend whom she had flown into Las Vegas earlier that day via private aircraft. The pair then decided to marry, and the marriage became a source of public ridicule following its subsequent annulment.

Britney’s legal team allegedly forced her to cancel the relationship two days after the 4 a.m. ceremony to safeguard her reputation.

“It was just so crazy, man,” Jason recalled in the new interview, adding, “We were just looking at each other and said, ‘Let’s do something wild, crazy. Let’s go get married, just for the hell of it.”

The two escaped in a rented lime green limo and headed to A Little White Wedding Chapel, which is best known for shotgun weddings. Charlotte Richards, the chapel’s owner, stated, “I guess the limousine driver got fired because he had no business taking them out.”

“Beautiful gal — all I could tell you. She was one very beautiful lady, and she was not drunk.”

According to Jason, the couple completed their marriage after the wedding by having sex in the back of the extended limo.

Jason further stated that Britney’s family was “ringing warning bells” by hastily annulling the wedding.

“The men in black swooped in, along with her mum and other family members, and they made us sign paperwork under duress to end our marriage,” he stated. “We didn’t want to annul it. They lied to us. It was always about controlling Britney and controlling her money.”


Pink Offers to Pay Fine Following Violation of ‘Sexist’ Bikini Dress Code by Norwegian Women’s Handball Team

Pink, a three-time Grammy Award winner, has expressed her support for the Norwegian women’s handball team following their protest against a “sexist” dress regulation. The 41-year-old musician offered to pay the team’s $1,765.28 European Handball Federation penalties.

“I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR ‘uniform,'” Pink wrote on Twitter Saturday. “The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM. Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” Pink wrote on her Twitter Page.

The EHF stated that the women competed in “improper clothing” by wearing shorts rather than the required bikini bottoms during the European Beach Handball Championships. The IHF’s rules state that “female athletes must wear bikini bottoms… with a close fit and cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg. The side width must be of a maximum of 10 centimeters.”

The Norwegian squad was sentenced to pay 150 euros per teammate, or around $1,700.

Katinka Haltvik, a player, revealed that the team chose to change their uniforms at the last minute. “It was very spontaneous. We thought, ‘Let’s just do it now, and then see what happens,'” Haltvik told Norway’s NRK.

Norway’s Handball Federation (NHF) defended their decision, agreeing to pay the fine for each athlete. “I got a message 10 minutes before the match that they would wear the clothing that they were satisfied with. And they got our full support,” NHF President Kåre Geir Lio told NBC News.

“We are very proud of these girls who are at the European Championships in beach handball. They raised their voice and told us that enough is enough,” the organization wrote on Instagram. “We are the Norwegian Handball Federation, and we stand behind you and support you. We will continue to fight to change the international regulations for attire so that players can play in the clothing they are comfortable with.”

President Michael Wiederer of the EHF has since indicated that the organization will reconsider its present dress policy.

“I can confirm that the EHF will do all it can to ensure that a change of athlete uniform regulations can be implemented,” Wiederer said in a statement. “Significant efforts will be made in order to further promote the sport in the best way possible for everyone, regardless of gender.”


‘Joker Apps’ That Can Steal Your Cash and Read Your Texts Must be Deleted From Your Phones

Tech experts have cautioned consumers to erase “Joker apps” from their Android phones, which can steal money and read their text conversations. Another batch of apps has been removed from the Google Play Store after revealing that they carried the “Joker” malware, which can enroll users in subscription plans and charge their saved credit cards.

This particular sort of malware was first found in 2017 but has now made a resurgence, infiltrating 11 apps on Google’s Play Store, according to Zscaler’s ThreatLabz. The Joker malware, according to Zscaler, is “one of the most prominent malware families targeting Android devices.”

“Despite public awareness of this particular malware, it keeps finding its way into Google’s official application market by employing changes in code, execution methods, or payload-retrieving techniques.”

Google has removed the corrupted apps from the Play Store, but those who have already downloaded the apps are still in danger. Google does not have the ability to remove apps from individual phones.

The following apps were reportedly infected with malware.

According to Zscaler, the Joker spyware is intended to “steal SMS messages, contact lists, and device information, and to sign the victim up for premium wireless application protocol (WAP) services.”

Over the last year, dozens of Android applications have been reported as potentially malicious.

Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, blasted Android in June for being much less secure than the iPhone’s iOS software. According to Forbes, Cook stated that “Android has 47 times more malware than iOS.”

“We structured iOS in such a way that there will be only one App Store,” Apple’s CEO explained. “All apps are checked prior to being added to the store, which keeps a significant amount of malware out of our ecosystem.”


Citizen App is Hiring New Yorkers for $25 an Hour to Livestream Crime Scenes Using Mobile Phones

Citizen, a controversial neighborhood watch app, is paying New York City residents $200 per day to race to a murder scene, a three-alarm fire, or a traffic accident, whip out their phones, and begin filming. According to The Post, Citizen’s pitch asks New Yorkers to livestream crime scenes and other public catastrophes to persuade more ordinary folks to do the same.

Citizen accumulated $133 million from high-profile investors, including Peter Thiel and Silicon Valley venture companies Sequoia Capital and Greycroft, on the promise of real-time safety alerts for users near their homes and places of employment.

The vast majority of those notifications, which include videos, appear to have been generated by volunteers who were in the right place at the right moment. And this business model, which comes amid dwindling journalistic coverage of local news, saves the company money.

Once known as Vigilante, the program now has over 7 million users in 30 locations and is secretly recruiting “field team members” to go about the city following down emergencies.

Chris, who goes by the handle @cgutter_, spent Thursday riding across the Bronx, responding to at least six separate incidents, including a bloody bus collision on Morris Avenue and a report of gunshots on East 175th Street. According to his profile, Chris has streamed 1,600 videos totaling 1.52 million views.

When questioned last week about Chris’ regular streaming on the app, a Citizen official confirmed that he worked for the company. Nonetheless, Chris is not identified as a Citizen employee in the app. Rather, he appears to be another concerned New Yorker. Citizen asserts that it does not conceal the fact that it employs paid field team members.

The job posting said field team members would be “dispatched” to cover events, including “dog locked in car” or house fires. “In the event that witnesses, police officials [sic] or other parties to interview are available, you must take the initiative to interview them for app viewers,” the listing added.

“You will be live-streaming from your phone straight to the app, covering the event as news,” according to the job description offered by third-party casting agency Flyover Entertainment.
