    ….as expected in these times of days when tweets can start a war


    Twitter banning ads from Russia’s Kaspersky Lab, makers of widely used personal computer security and antivirus software. Twitter points to U.S. claims that Kaspersky is linked to Russian intelligence, and says the company’s business model conflicts with its advertising rules.


    Justice Department Watchdog Probes Comey Memos Over Classified Information

    At least two of the memos that former FBI Director James Comey gave to a friend outside of the government contained information that officials now consider classified, according to people familiar with the matter, prompting a review by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog.

    Of those two memos, Mr. Comey himself redacted elements of one that he knew to be classified to protect secrets before he handed the documents over to his friend. He determined at the time that another memo contained no classified information, but after he left the Federal Bureau of Investigation, bureau officials upgraded it to “confidential,” the lowest level of classification.


    [b]I did take time off from work today & had close encounters with some deer that were startled … we still are in volatile times where we can swing 1% in either direction — all based on the “sound byte” of the day – whether true or false … I’m heading to bunkers at 4:20 in this crazed world we live in – lol 😉 Statistically, I would not want to be on highways as a few might be celebrating. Instead, I’m planting hot peppers & cherry tomatoes for what I hope is best garden ever 🙂

    And back to markets where some profit taking is underway … I was tempted to buy GE on dip – as indeed they did better than expected 🙂

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced Friday that his country will be suspending missile testing and closing a nuclear test site, several reports said.

    “From April 21, North Korea will stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” the Korean Central News Agency said, according to Yonhap News. “The North will shut down a nuclear test site in the country’s northern side to prove the vow to suspend nuclear test.”

    The announcement comes amid preparations for a meeting later this year between President Trump and the North Korean dictator. During the summit, Trump said he expected to talk with Kim about denuclearizing the hermit kingdom.
