    The FBI just warned banks that their customers’ accounts could be targeted by a worldwide ATM hacking scheme. The attack, known as an “ATM cash-out” or “unlimited operation,” is expected in the coming days, and will likely take place on a weekend or after banks have closed, according to information obtained by the FBI. Hackers will steal data by gaining access to bank systems or payment card processors. They’ll then alter bank data relating to fraud controls, maximum withdrawal limits, and even the amount of money in each account. Then, using the stolen information, they could withdraw large sums of...
  • In St. Paul gas station, cop told, 'I'm gonna take your gun,' charges say

    The man was 6-foot-4, weighed more than 300 pounds and wanted James Gray's gun, prosecutors say -- and he didn't ask nicely. It didn't take long for the St. Paul police sergeant to figure out "that things were going to break bad." It took Gray, two fellow officers and one vigorous wrestling match in a gas station to bring the suspect under control, according to court documents filed Monday. Anthony Michael Nickson, 49, of Hudson, Wis., was charged in Ramsey County District Court with five felonies -- three counts of terroristic threats and two of trying to disarm an officer....

    Energy Policy: The president said Tuesday the pipeline from Canada should be built if the State Department finds it will not add to carbon pollution and is in our national interest. But State already has — twice. 'Allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation's interest," the president said in his speech on climate change. "And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution." As with Benghazi, President Obama must not talk to the State Department much. For in...
  • Hunt for Christopher Dorner becomes major PR problem for L.A. police

    The hunt for alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner has turned into a major public relations challenge for law enforcement officials, in particular the Los Angeles Police Department working its way back from a history of corruption and abuse. Not only have hundreds of well-trained officers equipped with military-style vehicles – including helicopters with thermal imaging devices one pilot says can pick out a rabbit in a snowstorm – been unable to find the man charged with killing three people and wounding two others on a rampage aimed at police officers and their families. The LAPD also has been forced to...
  • Libya Attack Gains Steam as Issue in Race for President

    New York Times ^ | October 12, 2012 | By PETER BAKER and TRIP GABRIEL
    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s handling of the Libya attack has opened up a new front in the presidential campaign just weeks before Election Day, as Republicans seize on it to question the president’s performance as commander in chief. The dispute over the episode escalated after Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said during the debate on Thursday night that “we weren’t told” that Americans on the ground wanted security bolstered, despite testimony that requests were made to and turned down by the administration. Mitt Romney’s campaign on Friday accused the vice president of trying “to mislead the American public.”...

    "He had very tough things to say about the United States," said Ben-Eliezer, a member of the Labor Party who has held talks with Mubarak on numerous occasions while serving in various Israeli coalition governments. "He gave me a lesson in democracy and said: 'We see the democracy the United States spearheaded in Iran and with Hamas, in Gaza, and that's the fate of the Middle East,'" Ben-Eliezer said. "'They may be talking about democracy but they don't know what they're talking about and the result will be extremism and radical Islam,'" he quoted Mubarak as saying. Meanwhile, Doug Schoen,...

    EC analyzes Obama's first two weeks, and the emergence of a truly unique presidency, He's condensed much of the failure that took Jimmy Carter 4 years to (not) accomplish, and managed to do it in two short weeks. The attacks on private citizens and their free speech rights, the abandonment of the free market, the hypocrisy displayed by his cabinet - I even name the Obama's new dog for them!- all that and more in this rant!

    CARLISLE — There's little undisputed in this story, the tale of the tipped trailer. Frances Barton's single-wide, the one she had fully paid $5,000 for and was hoping to move to a little piece of land she was buying on a $250-a-month land contract, is now literally in pieces on Jim Gaunce's front lawn. And, everyone agrees, that leaves some 12 people — four adults and eight children ranging from 3 months to 12 years — facing Thanksgiving with no place to live. How, exactly, the mobile home came to this odd resting place is where the story gets complicated....

    Hundreds of Americans inappropriately placed on airline security watch lists and either banned from commercial air travel or subject to additional screening have also had to worry about identity theft for the past year. The Transportation Security Administration Web site set up to help innocent travelers clear their name has been deemed "insecure." A report issued on Friday by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee says that between October 6, 2006, when the TSA launched its Redress Management System [RMS] site, and February 13, 2007, when the site ceased operation following revelations about its lack of security, "[a]t least...
