>Travel aggregator Omio, which operates a multimodal transport planning and booking platform for intercity and long distance tips, has hopped over the pond to launch in North America — its first market outside its home base of Europe.

>From today, consumers in the U.S. and Canada can use Omio’s website or app to compare prices, schedules, duration and other variables for more than 23,000 train and bus routes across the two markets — with booking also baked into the platform. As well as wheeled regional intercity transport options the trip planner tool lets users view, compare and book flights.

>Omio says it’s partnered with “leading transport providers” in North America including Amtrak, VIA Rail Canada, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, OurBus and Academy for launch — saying “more routes and providers will be added through the year”.

>In total it says it’s partnered with more than 800 transport providers across Europe and North America.

>Just over a year ago the Berlin-based startup — formerly known as GoEuro — revealed it was rebranding, announcing an ambition to take its platform global, saying it would rely on an “a la carte” menu of products it had built up to cater to different-sized travel providers since the business was founded in 2013 to help it expand further a field and scale the business globally. Although CEO and founder, Naren Shaam, told us it was still deciding on its first stop beyond Europe at that point — with the US, South America and Asia all in the mix then.

>Rand Paul pledges to force Hunter Biden vote if GOP backs Dem impeachment witnesses
https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/478104-rand-paul-pledges-to-force-hunter-biden-vote-if-gop-backs-dem-impeachment
>inb4 theshill
Jewish Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) sent a public warning shot on Monday night, saying that if Republicans support Democrats' impeachment witness requests, then he will force votes during the trial on calling witnesses conservatives want to hear from.

"My colleagues can’t have it both ways. Calling for some, while blocking others," Paul tweeted, referencing a Politico report on a similar private warning he gave his GOP colleagues against supporting Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer's (D-N.Y.) request that former national security adviser John Bolton testify.

"If we are going to give a platform to witnesses the Dems demand, I look forward to forcing votes to call Hunter Biden and many more!" Paul continued.

Paul's public warning comes as Senate Republicans are privately haggling over the rules resolution for President Trump's impeachment trial.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said last week that she was working with a small group of Republican senators to ensure the resolution allows for both Trump's team and House impeachment managers to call witnesses.

>Hunter Biden
What testimony could Hunter Biden possibly give that has probative value in this case?
https://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/fre/rule_401
If he wants to investigate or prosecute the Bidens for something, he can go ahead and do it. Nothing they did changes the fact that Donald Trump broke the law, and Republicans don't get to derail Trump's trial with irrelevant bullshit.

Christian Eugene Mosco came up with what appeared to be a sure fire way to win his criminal case in which he was accused of threatening or extorting Jon Hall Chevrolet, a report said. Mosco declined to file criminal charges against himself, the report said.

Only problem is Mosco can’t do that, for at least two very important reasons. First, he is the person charged with the crime, and second, Mosco is not a prosecutor, or even a lawyer.

Mosco, 47, is now facing a slew of additional felony charges that could send him to prison for decades, including impersonating a prosecutor and practicing law without a license. Mosco is listed as a transient in an arrest report but his current home is the Volusia County Branch Jail, where he is being held without bail.

Those charges are on top of the second-degree felony Mosco was already charged with of threats or extortion after investigators said he emailed Jon Hall Chevrolet in Daytona Beach in May 2019 and demanded $50,000 and a 2019 Chevy Malibu in exchange for not revealing two years-worth of sales-records containing customer’s Social Security numbers.

Mosco said he found the records but Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood told a TV station at the time that he believed the records were stolen.

Mosco was arrested and charged with threats in the Jon Hall case.

On Sept. 26 an “announcement of no information” was filed in Mosco’s case. An announcement of no information means that prosecutors have decided not to file charges against someone.

But Laura Panzarino, an employee in the office of Volusia County Clerk of the Circuit Court Laura Roth’s, saw the filing the next day and thought the “no info” announcement was suspicious because prosecutors had already filed “an information” against Mosco, meaning they had charged him.

This almost reminds me of another story about a guy who pretended to be a deer. It happened in Florida too. He pretended to be a deer on the side of the road hoping someone will pull over and try to pet him. He would then carjack that person.

Unfortunately, that didn't happen. He was shot and killed by some Bubba who thought he was a deer. During hunting season, of course.

https://www.courthousenews.com/trump-campaign-adviser-pleads-guilty-to-child-porn-sex-trafficking/

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (CN) – An informal adviser to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign who testified in the Mueller probe pleaded guilty Monday to charges of child sex trafficking and possessing child pornography.

George Nader, 60, entered his plea before U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema in Virginia’s Eastern District.

The stocky, bespectacled former Washington insider was succinct as Judge Brinkema read the offenses in detail and asked for his plea.

“Guilty,” Nader said in a gravelly voice, rapidly nodding his head in a huddle with defense attorneys John Jeffress of Kaiser Dillon and John Nassikas III of Arnold Porter.

Though it was expected the Lebanese-American businessman would go to trial in March, a criminal information filed on Friday signaled the decision to change course.

He told the court on Monday that he felt no pressure to enter the pleas and that he had not struck any side deals with prosecutors or anyone else before deciding to confess.

Nader was first charged in June 2019 with transporting and possessing pornographic images of children including some featuring toddler-age boys, baby goats and other farm animals. A month later in July, prosecutors added a sex-trafficking charge, saying Nader had arranged the transport to his Washington home of a 14-year-old boy from the Czech Republic in February 2000.

I read that.
He a lobbyist with strong connections to the UAE. He does what the neocons and Sunni pay him to do. He sounds super connected.

This is about the direction of the United States of America," Bannon said. "It's about the peace and prosperity of the world. Donald Trump's policy is working. And this is why [Nancy Pelosi] slow-walked this. She invited him to do the State of the Union, and then she purposely slow-walked this because she wants in the middle of the trial -- and I can see The New York Times' headline: 'Under a Cloud of Uncertainty, Trump Addresses the Nation.' He has to be acquitted. He will be acquitted and exonerated. That should happen. And then you do the State of the Union, because the whole world will watch this."

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/bronsonstocking/2020/01/12/bannon-says-trump-should-give-state-of-the-union-address-after-impeachment-trial-n2559388?amp=true

https://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/politics/476668-nancy-pelosis-great-impeachment-charade

Speaker Pelosi must simply continue to investigate Trump and submit the articles of impeachment to the senate AFTER the scheduled state of the union speech Feb 4 2020, there is still much to investigate and expose and 4 weeks is less than sufficient time for a thorough job demanded by the us constitution, earlier submittal dates ensure Democratic defeat in November, imagine another 8 years of Trump

a submittal prior to this speech will enable s McConnell to acquit Trump in less than 3 days and ultimately Trump's landslide into reelection in November, the acquittal is 100% certain, some GOP senators are merely acting as if they are undecided to appear impartial when in fact their vote is already certain, Trump will use the speech to continue to utter countless lies and claim the trial was fair and found him innocent, not to mention Trumps desire to denigrate the left up and into the speech itself in front of a national audience, the public at large believes what they hear including falsehoods that will go unchallenged on stage

don't rush Nancy, its only January

The Iraqi parliament decided to withdraw all foreign troops from the country. This was announced by Prime Minister Abdul Mahdi, reports Reuters.

It is noted that a plan to end foreign intervention should be implemented as soon as possible. “The exact time for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq has been submitted to parliament,” Mahdi said.

Earlier, the Iraqi parliament gathered at an emergency meeting. There they discussed the issue of ending the presence of foreign forces in the country.

In 2018, it was reported that at least 5,000 U.S. military are located in Iraq - this is the largest foreign contingent in the country. In addition to the United States, Britain, Germany, France and other European countries sent their troops there.

I totally see the blatant hypocrisy and trouble we cause. Any way to look at this besides realpolitik is rose colored glasses. We aren't the good guys and it is totally understandable why every country on earth would have reason to take pause at our actions.

All we are doing in the middle east now is using our military might to burn treasure killing and destabilizing brown people, while we create the very thing that next generation will be used to justify a hyper militarized surveillance state to "protect" us from the very monster we create.

U.S. plans expulsions of at least a dozen Saudi military students whose colleague killed three at Pensacola naval base
https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/saudi-military-trainees-could-be-sent-home-following-fbi-investigation-into-shooting-that-killed-three-at-pensacola-naval-base/2020/01/11/1797cc78-34e1-11ea-91fd-82d4e04a3fac_story.html
At least a dozen Saudi military trainees in the United States could be sent back to their home country after an FBI investigation found connections to extremist rhetoric, possession of child pornography, and a failure by a small number of people to report alarming behavior by the gunman who killed three people last month at a Pensacola, Fla., military base, according to people familiar with the matter.
Federal law enforcement and military officials are preparing to announce developments in the case in a matter of days. The FBI has been treating the shooting as a terrorist incident, particularly after discovering an anti-American screed posted by the gunman just before the December shooting, according to the people familiar with the matter. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss decisions by government officials.
Several of the Saudis were found to possess child pornography, while others were found to have been a part of a social media conversation that included alarming support for extremism, according to one of the people familiar with the matter
A spokeswoman for the Justice Department and a spokeswoman for the FBI declined to comment. The planned expulsions of the Saudi trainees were first reported by CNN.

A missing goat that provided "therapy" for a depressed cow has been found safe and returned home in a police car.

Peaches disappeared on December 13 from a paddock next to the Maungaturoto Hotel in Northland.

The goat was purchased by hotel owner Robin Dickens to provide companionship after one of two of his pet cows died, leaving the other distressed.

Maungaturoto Hotel caretaker Joe Robin said she spotted Peaches on December 23 among a herd of goats outside a nearby property.

"Peaches is a lot whiter than the other goats, so I could tell it was her," she said.

"She was also sitting by herself away from the others, like she didn’t belong there."

Robin said the owners of the property claimed they had bought Peaches at a local market. The goat was believed to be stolen as the fencing to her paddock was cut when she was discovered missing.

"She was very shaken when we found her. We notified the police and they went and picked her up for us," she said.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/09/ceo-confidence-in-economy-has-cratered-consumers-say-things-are-ok.html

Consumers and corporate chieftains are heading in the opposite direction, with one group still brimming with good thoughts about the future and the other sure that tougher times are coming.

Recent surveys exemplify a trend that began a few years ago and has accelerated over the past several months. The gap between sentiment is broad and growing, though there’s some reason to believe that a change could be coming.

Chief executive officers and chief financial officers see an economy that is heading into a slowdown if not an outright recession. Recent surveys show that CEOs believe recession is the biggest risk in 2020, while almost all CFOs surveyed by Deloitte think the economy is likely to at least slow.

They view the U.S.-China trade war, a slowing global picture and increasing headline political risks as threats to the decadelong expansion that is the longest in American history.

But consumers are in the opposite camp.

While sentiment has leveled off from record highs, they still view conditions as generally positive. Spending remains strong even amid a growing savings rate, as consumers remain the beneficiary of a 50-year low in the unemployment rate and historic highs for the stock market.

I'd assume it's to create mildly visceral imagery linking a black guy getting arrested to corpses being tossed into a mass grave. Also to individualize the ones who are supposedly suffering.

As a white guy, I don't identify with "white people" as if it was some all-encompassing thing. So, like with a lot of other SJW type things, it ends up feeling like a petty tit-for-tat thing at it's core. i.e. "You spent 40,000 years lumping US into a single hivemind and now we're doing the same back.

Today, which is Monday FYI, Harvey Weinstein was falsely charged with more ridiculousness from the prostituter. They're claiming Harvey's not only a pedophile and rapist but also a manipulating con artist.

Smh. Look at him! (as shown in pic) He's pushing a stroller. Come on! How can this poor weak barely able to walk without medical assistance kind-gentleman be able to rape those Hollywood escort actresses? I say this is another sham! Like the Cosby one. Poor Bill has to sit in prison now because the justice system doesn't like black comedians who has nasty quiet sex with ugly white women. RACIST!

And Bingo was his name. Those women are all actresses. They know how to act like a victim. And I wouldn't doubt, poor Weinstein is the actual victim in all of this. Where's the justice there? Women own the victim role in this country. And when men are victimized, women laugh about it. As if guys are nothing.

Once I was gang-raped at a fraternity pledge. 5 female sorority co-eds sexually assaulted me for over 10 hours!

That horrifying night began when I was at a gas station panhandling for money, to buy beer with. One of them approached me and made an offer I couldn't refuse. "We got beer."

So they took me back to some strange house and brought me into a some sort of basement. They tricked me into sitting down on a chair and tied me up. Two of them held a funnel above me pouring beers down it into my mouth.

Then they began to sexually assault. And that continued on until the next morning when one accidentally untied me after I promised I would make some pancakes for her. I ran instead. Though they would later claim I didn't run, they kicked me out. Because they was done with me.
