Manafort's Secret Side Business in Florida?

Manafort’s work as a lobbyist for foreign governments was well known, and Manafort attorney Kevin Downing described him at the Monday hearing as an “international consultant” who worked on campaigns and overseas investing and had a lot of clients in New York City. The news that he also does some work in tech came up after Downing mentioned that Manafort did a “bit of work down in Florida” and that he’s “got a business down in Fort Lauderdale.” That piqued U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s curiosity. “What’s the business?” she asked.

“It’s a telecommunications business,” Downing replied. “It’s developing secure cell phones, and it also does make them relatively or virtually indestructible.”

Downing did not respond to HuffPost’s questions about the telecommunications business on Monday or Tuesday, and Judge Jackson issued a gag order on Wednesday that restricts attorneys’ comments to the media. (Jackson had admonished Downing after he spoke to cameras outside the courthouse after Manfort’s first court appearance.)

HuffPost has tried to find out more about the business. We’ve searched Florida business records, Fort Lauderdale tax records, poked around job boards and checked the transcript of Manafort’s hearing to make sure we didn’t miss any clues. But so far, we’ve come up short. (Do you know more? Email ryan.reilly@huffpost.com.)

Has NASA Facebook page been taken over by Russian bots too???

I have always loved the NASA articles and beautiful photographs, but I have noticed that lately whenever there is an interesting little article about space exploration (nothing really wild or outlandish) there is a HUGE barrage of attacks in the comment section that everything is fake and it is some kind of conspiracy from Nasa trying to brainwash us. What the heck??? Especially regarding the recent article that says " explore the edge and our ICON mission".

Venezuela raises possibility of Russian military help to counter US, after Kremlin meeting today

Confident in Russian aid in the face of more threats from Washington, Maduro thanked Moscow for its help and spoke of the respect and mutual admiration between former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Putin that has continued today. Calling it a win-win relationship, Maduro said cooperation with Russia had made Venezuela’s armed forces "three times stronger over the past 15 years."

Maduro thanked Putin publicly for his ongoing support and called him the true leader of the world.

“Putin is the leader of the emerging world, the world we want to live in. Putin carries the banner of decorum, dignity and peace,” he said.
