Mercedes Spies On Drivers By Secretly Installing Tracking Devices In Cars And Passing Information To Bailiffs – The Sun

Mercedes has sparked a privacy row by admitting it spies on drivers with tracking devices covertly installed in its cars. The secret sensors, fitted to all new and used motors sold by the firm’s dealers, pinpoint the vehicle’s exact location.

The firm sold more than 170,000 new cars in Britain alone last year. Mercedes will not say how long it has used the sensors. And it insists they are only activated in “extreme circumstances” – when finance customers have defaulted on their payments.

But it admits sharing car owner information and vehicle location details with third-party bailiffs and recovery firms who repossess the cars.

Ex-Cabinet minister David Davis today called for the Government to investigate. He added: “This is not the first time big business has behaved like Big Brother – but it’s rare to be quite as deceitful as this.

“I have to question whether it is even legal to pass on information to other people such as bailiffs…

Trump Administration Seeks To Terminate Flores Settlement Limiting Detention Of Migrant Families – Daily Caller
.

.
The Trump administration is seeking to terminate the Flores settlement, an immigration-related court order that prevents most migrant family units from being held in detention centers for more than 20 days, the Daily Caller has learned.

Eliminating the Flores settlement would allow the U.S. government to hold migrant children and their families indefinitely while they await court proceedings.

The 1997 Flores v. Reno decision by the Supreme Court laid out specific conditions under which unaccompanied migrant children could be held in detention, and was later expanded to place time restrictions on the detention of migrant children accompanied by family members…

Drunk Florida Man Steals Walmart Mobility Scooter, Is Nabbed By Police When He Stops At Convenience Store To Recharge Battery – Angle News

A tipsy 59-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stealing a mobility scooter from Walmart and driving it about a mile away until the batter ran out. John Davis was taken into custody Saturday night just before 11pm after police found him attempting to recharge the scooter at a gas station.

According to a police report, Davis boosted the ride from the Walmart on Bay Pines Boulevard in St Petersburg, which is about 20 miles from his home in Palmetto. He then drove the $1,500 scooter ‘off of Walmart property and continued riding it approximately one mile’ away from the store.

Walmart employees notified authorities who later found Davis trying to recharge the scooter at a Wawa gas station. When officers questioned Davis, he reportedly told them that he was riding a stolen vehicle.

In his mugshot, Davis appears to have been injured at some point during the day. He’s seen with one bloodshot eye with bruising under it…

Trump Calls For A Big Fed Rate Cut, Again Criticizes Central Bank Chairman – Wall Street Journal

President Trump on Monday called for the Federal Reserve to sharply cut interest rates and again criticized the central bank’s chairman for a “horrendous lack of vision,” while reiterating his belief that the U.S. economy is strong.

The president said in a pair of tweets Monday morning that the Fed should cut its benchmark interest rate by at least a full percentage point and resume its crisis-era program of buying bonds to lower long-term borrowing costs. Such moves would typically be considered only when the economy faces serious peril, which Fed officials don’t believe to be the case.

White House officials have said in recent days that they don’t believe the U.S. is headed toward a slowdown.

Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, said Sunday that there were no signs of a recession and that the White House is considering tax cuts aimed at the middle class, which Mr. Trump floated before the 2018 midterms but didn’t ultimately pursue…

Trump Administration Plans Big Cuts In International Spending, Including African Abortion Funding – CBN

A senior Trump administration official tells CBN News that the White House plans to cut abortion funding in West Africa as part of their goal to drastically cut America’s international foreign aid around the world.

Specifically, the blueprint would no longer provide ‘voluntary family planning money’ to the countries of Sierra Leone, Niger, Burkina Faso, and Benin.

“The President himself has stated that there is a lot of fat in the foreign assistance we provide,” according to the senior official. “While there are many great programs we support around the world, taxpayer dollars should not be spent on ‘voluntary family planning’ in Africa – which could include abortion…

Fake Cop Arrested After Pulling Over Real Detectives, Police Say – Law & Crime

Don’t you hate it when you’re pretending to be a cop, and you pull over real ones? Then these guys have the nerve to confront you. Outrageous!

Valiery Portlock, 25, is charged first-degree criminal impersonation of an office, second-degree reckless endangerment, unlawful fleeing from a police officer, and other traffic violations, in Nassau County, New York, according to Newsday.

The defendant, a resident of the hamlet of Hicksville, was driving a Nissan Sentra at about 11 a.m., cops said. He attempted to pull over an unmarked van by using an air horn and emergency lights, officers said. Surprise, surprise, there were electronic squad detectives inside.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has removed sections of her campaign website that had disputed claims about her heritage, including the results of a DNA test that showed she had scant traces of Native American ancestry.

Until Sunday, Warren’s website included a video of the Democrat receiving the results of the genetic test, which showed that she had between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American ancestry. Warren initially touted the results as a vindication of her claims throughout her academic career that she has Cherokee ancestry.

In April 1986, Warren listed herself as “Native American” on a Texas state bar registration form…

Sanctuary County Sheriff Ignored ICE Detainer, Released Illegal Alien Charged With Rape – USIACR

A North Carolina sheriff has been accused by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials of ignoring an ICE detainer in the case of an illegal immigrant who was captured this month – two months after he was released on bond in a rape case.

“By releasing a previously deported alien facing serious criminal charges, Mecklenburg County chose to release a serious public safety threat onto the streets of Charlotte where he was free to potentially harm others for nearly two months until his capture by ICE,” the agency officials said Friday.

Charlotte police arrested Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo June 14 on rape and indecent liberties with a minor charges. Online records show Pacheco-Leonardo was accused of having sex with a child under the age of 13. He was due back in court in October.

Planned Parenthood Set To Lose $60 Million In Annual Funds On Monday, Following Trump Administration Rule Change – Big League Politics

The Trump administration is cracking down on Planned Parenthood, the federally-subsidized abortion provider that has killed and dismembered millions of babies nationwide,by denying them the annual funds they have come to rely upon from the taxpayer.

Planned Parenthood is set to lose as much as $60 million in annual funding from the federal government, as a new rule from the Trump administration is set to go into effect. They announced they intend to withdraw from the Title X program, as those funds are now denied to family-planning entities that provide abortions.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco still has a chance to overturn the rules, as Planned Parenthood and their allies have filed a lawsuit to overturn Trump’s decision. However, the panel of judges had previously ruled to allow the Trump administration to move forward with the rule change.

If the 9th District stops the Trump administration, the legal battle will likely not end there…
