Lady Gaga's dogs recovered safely after theft, shooting

STEFANIE DAZIO

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lady Gaga's two French bulldogs, which were stolen by thieves who shot and wounded the dog walker, were recovered unharmed Friday, Los Angeles police said.

A woman brought the dogs to the LAPD's Olympic Community Police Station, just northwest of downtown, around 6 p.m, said Capt. Jonathan Tippet, commanding officer of the department's elite Robbery-Homicide Division.

Lady Gaga’s representative and detectives went to the station and confirmed that they were the dogs, Tippet said.

The singer is currently in Rome to film a movie.

The woman who dropped off the dogs appears to be “”uninvolved and unassociated" with Wednesday night's attack, Tippet said.

In a tweet Friday night, the LAPD said the woman had found the dogs “and reached out to Lady Gaga’s staff to return them."

Her identity and the location where the dogs were found won't be disclosed for her safety and because of the ongoing investigation, the LAPD said.

The dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot once as he walked three of the singer's dogs in Hollywood. Video showed a white sedan pulling up and two men jumping out. They struggled with the dog walker before one pulled a gun and fired a single shot before fleeing with two of the dogs. The third escaped and has since been reunited with Lady Gaga's representatives.

The dog walker can be heard on the video saying he had been shot in the chest. He is expected to survive his injuries, Tippet said.

Lady Gaga on Friday repeated her offer of a $500,000 reward for the return of her dogs — whose names are Koji and Gustav — with no questions asked. Tippet said since police were not involved in the reward, he did not know if the woman would receive it.

“I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You’re forever a hero," Lady Gaga said in an Instagram post.

Our goal is to create a safe and

Former U.S. gymnastics coach John Geddert kills himself hours after being charged with 24 crimes

Chris Cwik

Former U.S Olympics women's gymnastics head coach John Geddert died by suicide Thursday.

Geddert, 63, died hours after he was charged with 24 crimes, including sexual assault, racketeering and human trafficking.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel confirmed Geddert's death and said, "This is a tragic end to a tragic story for everyone involved."

Geddert was expected to turn himself in at the Eaton County Sheriff's Department at 2:15 p.m. Eastern, but did not show up, according to the Detroit News.

Twenty of the 24 charges against Geddert were related to human trafficking. Geddert also received one charge of racketeering and two charges of criminal sexual assault of a teen.

Geddert's final charge involved lying to investigators over the Larry Nassar case.

John Geddert linked to Larry Nassar

Nassar — who was sentenced to 175 years in prison in 2018 — served as the U.S. Olympics women's gymnastics team doctor during Geddert's tenure as head coach. Nassar pleaded guilty to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual assault in 2018. He was sentenced to a maximum of 60 years in prison in 2017 for child pornography crimes. Over 150 of Nassar's victims spoke at his sentencing, which lasted seven days.

Geddert was mentioned multiple times during Nassar's sentencing. One woman claimed Geddert was informed about an "inappropriate procedure” Nassar performed on the woman when she was 16. The woman's mother reportedly confronted Geddert about Nassar's behavior in 1998. That contradicted statements Geddert made to officers during the Nassar investigation, when Geddert claimed he was unaware of Nassar's crimes.

At Nassar's sentencing, one of Geddert's former gymnasts said Geddert deserved “to sit behind bars right next to Larry."

After being suspended by USA Gymnastics in 2018, Geddert informed parents at his gymnastics club — Twistars — he was retiring. He turned over ownership of his club to his wife, Kathryn, in 2018.

Ghislaine Maxwell admitted Jeffrey Epstein had secret tapes of Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, reporter claims

Ghislaine Maxwell admitted that Jeffrey Epstein had secret recordings of Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, a CBS News producer has claimed in a new book.

The British socialite, who is awaiting trial on charges of procuring girls for Epstein to abuse in the mid-1990s, was reportedly duped by journalist Ira Rosen into confirming that the sex offender had taped his famous friends.

Reports that Epstein had planted secret recording devices in his homes and - it was rumoured - had potentially incriminating tapes of his many powerful associates have circulated for years but have never been verified.

Mr Rosen, an award-winning producer, said he spoke with Ms Maxwell ahead of the 2016 presidential election and, acting on a "hunch" that recordings existed, duped the socialite into apparently confirming his theory.

In his memoir, Mr Rosen writes that he told Ms Maxwell: "I want the tapes. I know he [Epstein] was videotaping everyone."

Mr Rosen claims that Ms Maxwell "gave me a stern look and pointed a finger in my face. She said: 'I am the daughter of a press baron. I know the way you people think. If you do one side, you must do the other. If you get the tapes on Trump you have to do Clinton'."

Mr Rosen replied: "I will. I will go wherever the story goes."

Last year Mr Trump said he had met Ms Maxwell "numerous times" but was "not a fan" of Epstein, whom he had a falling out with about 15 years ago.

A spokesperson for Mr Clinton has previously said his friendship with Epstein came to an end before the financier's was convicted of soliciting a minor for sex in 2008.

The producer believes Ms Maxwell's comments confirmed reports that Epstein, who was accused by dozens of women of procuring them for sex convicted of soliciting a minor in 2008, had secretly recorded the elite friends he hosted at his various properties. No tapes have ever been forthcoming.

Ms Maxwell, the daughter of the late media tycoon Robert Maxwell, is being held without bail in a Manhattan jail while she prepares for a July trial.The 59-year-old has always denied any wrongdoing.

Ms Maxwell's lawyers have repeatedly complained about her treatment in the Metropolitan Detention Centre in Brooklyn.

Just this week, her legal team claimed she had been “physically abused” by prison guards, is losing her hair and is “withering to a shell of her former self”.

"Recently, out of view of the security camera, Ms. Maxwell was placed in her isolation cell and physically abused during a pat down search," lawyer Bobbi Sternheim wrote to a New York Judge.

“When Ms Maxwell recoiled in pain and when she said she would report the mistreatment, she was threatened with disciplinary action,” she added.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons has not responded to the latest claims, but in December they defended Ms Maxwell’s jail conditions, saying she received three meals a day, could use the recreational areas and had more than eight hours of call time each month.

who are we in debt to

 

just who are we in debt to ......and who are we  borrowing from


This week in Bidenomics: The new king of debt

Rick Newman
·Senior Columnist

Former President Donald Trump once declared himself “the king of debt.” President Joe Biden will resoundingly dethrone him.

The Congressional Budget Office published its semiannual economic forecast on Feb. 11, and the numbers are astonishing. CBO estimates the federal budget deficit this year will hit $2.3 trillion, which believe it or not wouldn’t be the biggest ever. The deficit last year was $3.1 trillion, the largest in U.S. history.

But the 2021 estimate doesn’t include the $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan” Biden and his fellow Democrats in Congress are drafting. Add in that measure, and the 2021 deficit could hit $3.7 trillion, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

Deficits will stay near or above $1 trillion for the foreseeable future, with the national debt likely to rise by at least $7 trillion through the end of Biden’s term. The debt rose by about $5.6 trillion during Trump’s four years, with more than half of that coming in 2020.

The salient question: Does it matter? Economists have changed their views on this during the last decade, because the predicted ravages of massive debt have never materialized. In theory, too much government borrowing can crowd out private borrowing, pushing interest rates up, slowing growth and causing inflation. Rising rates make it more expensive to borrow money, worsening the problem. A government caught in this trap can either print more money—exacerbating inflation—or impose painful spending cuts and tax hikes that pummel living standards.

None of that has happened since the Great Recession ended in 2009, despite many rumored sightings of the “bond vigilantes.” Economists now think it’s more important to flood the system with money during a downturn such as we’re in, and deal with the debt later. One lesson from the Great Recession was that there wasn’t enough government stimulus, which is why the recovery was painfully slow.

If the Biden bill passes, fiscal stimulus this year and last will be roughly 7 times what the government pumped into the economy during the Great Recession. A faster recovery ought to put people back to work faster and boost output, increasing tax payments on the other side and bringing in more federal revenue eventually than would come in without massive stimulus.

The total national debt is now about $28 trillion, which is about 30% more than annual GDP. No sweat, say many economists. Harvard’s Jason Furman, who was President Obama’s top White House economist, argues that real interest payments on the debt as a percentage of GDP are well below the historical average, because of super-low interest rates. That would be the case with the Biden relief plan as well.

“We have substantial fiscal space, in fact more than we’ve generally had in the past,” Furman wrote in Feb. 11 a Twitter thread. “We can afford the additional debt associated with the American Rescue Plan plus substantial additional debt thereafter.”

Biden will love to hear that, because he’s got big spending plans after Congress passes the relief plan. Biden is reportedly developing an infrastructure program, including a green-energy onslaught, that could run from $1 trillion to $2 trillion. Since it wouldn’t be “emergency” spending, Congressional rules say there would have to be tax hikes or spending cuts to cover the cost. But there are ways around those rules and a sanguine debt outlook would ease the path toward passage.

None of this changes the fact that America has an entrenched habit of spending beyond its means. For years, health care spending on Medicare, Medicaid and other programs has been growing faster than the funding that supports it. The Medicare trust fund will probably run short of money at some point during Biden’s term. Social Security is solvent until the early 2030s, but that problem might arrive sooner given the plunge in tax revenue during the coronavirus downturn.

Trump made the problem worse. The 2017 Trump tax cuts slashed government revenue and sent the annual deficit higher, when it should have been falling amid solid economic growth and full employment. Trump and other Republicans promised the usual “trickle-down” magic, with more spending by those paying less in taxes fueling growth and tax revenue rising to new highs. It never happened.

Then coronavirus hit, and the spending spree was on. Where it ends, nobody yet knows. What we do know is a gargantuan deficit won’t be the thing that stops it.

Jenna Ryan, a Texas real-estate agent charged in the Capitol insurrection, says she 'bought into a lie' and regrets 'everything'

Jenna Ryan, a Texas real-estate agent who infamously took a private jet to Washington, DC, to attend what turned into the riot at the US Capitol and who has since been criminally charged over the insurrection, now says she is embarrassed by her actions and regrets "everything."

On January 15, Ryan was arrested and charged with two federal misdemeanor counts of knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted government building without lawful authority and disorderly conduct.

Ryan told The Washington Post she felt abandoned by the group of "patriots" who she said she came to the nation's capital to support.

"I bought into a lie, and the lie is the lie, and it's embarrassing," she said. "I regret everything."

As the FBI outlined in an affidavit, Ryan's participation in the riot was well documented on social media. Video footage from the event showed Ryan in the crowd that breached the Capitol wearing a "Trump" beanie hat. She also promoted her real-estate business, with her full name, to one of the many cameras rolling at the event.

Ryan also posed for a photo next to a broken window at the Capitol with a peace hand signal, according to the affidavit, captioning the photo on Twitter: "window at The capital. And if the news doesn't stop lying about us we're going to come after their studios next."

After the attack, she also bragged on Twitter: "We just stormed the Capital. It was one of the best days of my life."

Ryan told The Post that she didn't come to Washington, DC, to storm the Capitol but got swept up in the action when her group saw then-President Donald Trump on TV at their hotel telling his supporters to "fight like hell." Trump is now facing his second Senate impeachment trialon a charge of inciting the January 6 insurrection.

Two other people who rode on the same private jet with Ryan were charged on February 5.

Through an analysis of court records and public documents, The Post found that that almost 60% of those charged so far - for whom there is publicly available financial information - had experienced financial difficulties, including bankruptcies, foreclosures, unpaid taxes, and significant debt.

The Post said Ryan was among the suspects who had experienced "financial problems" and fell down a rabbit hole of right-wing media and the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Ryan, who lives in Frisco, Texas, and practices real estate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, was also barred from PayPal after she attempted to raise funds for her legal defense on the platform.

She was also one of the many suspects in the Capitol riot who were disappointed when Trump declined to pardon anyone charged in the insurrection.

"Not one patriot is standing up for me," Ryan told The Post. "I'm a complete villain. I was down there based on what my president said: 'Stop the steal.' Now I see that it was all over nothing. He was just having us down there for an ego boost. I was there for him."
