This Police Department Is So Bad, a Cop Reported It to Black Lives Matter
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos Getty/FacebookBy September 2020, police officer Robert Black was at his wit’s end.Over his year of service in the department of Millersville, Tennessee, Black had allegedly been subjected to sexual harassment, including from a female officer who used a racist slur while grabbing his genitals. The police chief, whom Black suspected of harboring Ku Klux Klan ties, had allegedly made disparaging comments about Black’s biracial son. The assistant police chief was under investigation for allegedly assaulting his wife during a dispute over an alleged affair with a drug suspect. Through it all, management allegedly silenced officers’ complaints by instructing them to support the “thin blue line.”“Nobody would listen to what was going on up there,” Black told The Daily Beast. “Nobody cared.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

New Arizona ‘Voter Fraud’ Report Turbocharges the Crazy
Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastFor Donald Trump’s most fervent supporters, the Republican-led Arizona Senate’s “forensic audit” of more than 2 million ballots last November offered a chance to prove election fraud, or even overturn Joe Biden’s victory. Right-wing media were enthralled by the ballot counters’ often bizarre practices, including hunts for ballots made of bamboo fibers and suspicious ballot folds that would supposedly indicate Democratic election theft.But more than four months have passed since the initial date the report on the 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County was first promised, and the audit’s supporters are getting restless. The ballot count ended this summer and the ballot-counters even held a two-month reunion on Wednesday night. A number of issues have delayed the report, including a COVID-19 outbreak that infected the head of audit operator “Cyber Ninjas” and two of his employees.State Senator Wendy Rogers (R), whose advocacy for the audit has turned her into an up-and-coming figure on the national Republican fringe, this week acknowledged critics who have called the audit, in her words, “fake” and “not real.” Rogers claims the final report will be delivered to the Arizona state Senate next week.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Will Prince Andrew Pay His Way Out of His Epstein Mess?
Jon Thys/GettyPrince Andrew may well end up making a financial settlement with Virginia Giuffre, legal experts have told The Daily Beast, after lawyers for the prince participated at the 11th hour in the American legal process this week.Any such settlement would, of course, likely be couched in carefully negotiated verbiage specifying that Andrew did not admit to anything untoward. There would be no official admission of guilt. Individuals would be left to draw their own conclusions as to what such a payment would signify.Giuffre’s legal team did not respond to a request by The Daily Beast for comment. However that team, led by attorney David Boies, has clearly cast the civil lawsuit as a moral crusade, saying in court filings, for example, that it is “long past the time for [Andrew] to be held to account,” suggesting that any settlement that explicitly exonerated Andrew might be a bitter pill to swallow.

Top Russian Diplomat’s Secret Life With Millionaire Mistress Exposed
Russian Foreign Ministry/TASS/GettyRussian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has reportedly bankrolled his mistress’s travel abroad with him on official diplomatic trips to almost two dozen countries around the world, according to a new bombshell report from Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny’s team. The report, entitled “Yachts, bribes and a mistress. What Minister Lavrov is hiding,” details a plethora of luxury digs and yachts enjoyed by the couple, including a yacht owned by the notorious oligarch Oleg Deripaska, which has been graced by the likes of Belarusian model Anastasia Vashukevich, better known by her pseudonym Nastya Rybka.Lavrov, 71, is married and has a daughter. His alleged female companion, Svetlana Polyakova, is an actress and a restaurateur, with no known qualifications that would justify her apparent affiliation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Property records unearthed by reporters show that Polyakova and members of her family own real estate in Russia and the U.K. worth about 1 billion rubles ($13.6 million), as well as a fleet of luxury cars worth a total of about 40 million rubles ($545,000).The Navalny team’s Thursday report was a follow-up to an investigation released earlier this week by iStories, an independent Russia-focused investigative news outlet. Based on information provided by sources within the Foreign Ministry, the outlet found that Polyakova’s relationship with Lavrov is reportedly so close that her friends listed her contact information as “Svetlana Lavrova.” She participated in public events alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin and was included in the elite entourage allowed to be in his presence.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Clint Eastwood Takes on Toxic Masculinity—and Himself—in ‘Cry Macho’
Courtesy Warner BrothersClint Eastwood is the last remnant of an era of “macho” Hollywood movie stars, and the shot that introduces him in Cry Macho—panning up from his cowboy boots to his wide-brimmed hat, his figure cast in silhouette as he steps out of an antique Chevrolet pickup truck—confirms that, even at age 91, he’s as imposingly masculine as ever. No matter a preceding image of a hand operating a vehicle’s shifter, Eastwood isn’t changing gears at this point in his career (and life), and his latest is yet another in a long line of superb films that pays homage to his legendary big-screen persona while simultaneously deconstructing the very tenets upon which it’s built.An adaptation of a 1975 N. Richard Nash novel that numerous A-listers have previously tried to produce, Cry Macho (Sept. 17, in theaters and on HBO Max) is a tender and moving variation on a tale Eastwood has been telling, in altered forms, for decades. Mike Milo (Eastwood) is an ex-rodeo star and rancher who, in 1979, is fired by his boss Howard Polk (Dwight Yoakam), whom Mike promptly tells, “I’ve always thought of you as a small, weak and gutless man. But you know, there’s no reason to be rude.”Mike takes shit from no one, but he’s also a broken-down loner with a history of tragedy and substance abuse. One year later, he’s living a solitary life—marked by sitting solo at dusk on a folding chair outside a modest residence decorated with ribbons, trophies, and newspaper clippings of his pre-injury glory days—when Howard reappears and collects on a debt by asking Mike to travel to Mexico to retrieve his son Rafo (Eduardo Minett), who lives with his supposedly abusive mother.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Should Generals Break the Rules to Stop a Rogue President?
Saul Loeb/AFP via GettySeven months after leaving office, Hurricane Trump’s legacy continues to spew second-order sewage over America.Consider the recent revelations about Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who is now involved in his own controversy. The details are murky, but according to Peril, the new book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, Milley violated his authority by assuring his Chinese counterpart that the U.S. wouldn’t attack them. “If this is true,” tweeted Alexander Vindman, who served as a key witness in the first Trump impeachment trial, “GEN Milley must resign. He usurped civilian authority, broke Chain of Command, and violated the sacrosanct principle of civilian control over the military. It’s an extremely dangerous precedent. You can’t simply walk away from that.”Vindman—the former Director for European Affairs for the U.S. National Security Council—has a point. America’s founders feared military coups so much that they insisted on civilian control of the military and even distrusted standing armies. But let’s be honest: Outrage over Milley is tempered by the sense that someone had to be ready in case Trump attempted a coup—or decided to push the nuclear button on his way out the door.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Let Britney Spears Enjoy Her Time Offline. You Wish You Had It, Too.
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photo GettyThe last good place on the internet—Britney Spears’ Instagram, duh—is no longer. The pop princess, who’s been freshly released from her shady conservatorship, went out with a bang. Specifically, she posted a snap of her bikini-clad bum with the caption “Here’s my ass,” and the news that she became engaged to boyfriend Sam Asghari. Then, overnight, the feed disappeared.According to Page Six, there’s nothing to worry about. Spears just needed a reset. As an “insider” told the tabloid, “She’s happy and in a great place, and silence can be a powerful thing and a powerful message. This was her decision.” The singer tweeted as much, writing: “Don’t worry folks… just taking a little break from social media to celebrate my engagement... I’ll be back soon!”She’s not the only one. Vogue’s October cover star, Lorde, explained in her profile why she’s been off of the social media grid since 2018: “I could sense that it would be very bad for the work and for me if I stayed online,” she said, adding “I started to see the phone as a portal. I can’t keep going through that portal, in the same way that I wouldn’t just take mushrooms all these moments of a day. It’s too deep a tunnel.” A “coder friend” even helped her block certain sites on all of her devices.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Could There Be a Non-Vaccine COVID Cure?
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyThere could be another line of defense against COVID-19 on the medical horizon—one that doesn’t involve taking horse medication or even vaccine boosters.According to Dr. Scott Gottlieb, author of Uncontrolled Spread, former FDA commissioner, and a member of Pfizer’s board of directors, there are three promising pills in development to help treat COVID like “Tamiflu for influenza,” he tells Molly Jong-Fast on the latest episode of The New Abnormal. Of course, vaccines are the best way to slow the spread of COVID-19 and prevent serious infection and hospitalization, but the more protection, the better.Subscribe to The New Abnormal on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Amazon Music, or Overcast.

Lawmakers Look to Crack Down on ‘Hack for Hire’ Business
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / GettyIt’s a classic story of what happens when spies go rogue, but instead of the typically draconian punishments associated with treason, three former U.S. cyberoperatives who worked for the United Arab Emirates after leaving government service are getting off with a fine.The three men—Marc Baier, Ryan Adams, and Dan Gericke—have agreed to pay $1,685,000 to avoid jail time, according to court filings. In doing so, they’ve acknowledged that they committed hacking crimes and violated U.S. laws meant to restrict the export of military technology to foreign governments after leaving the intelligence community and military to hack journalists, activists, and dissidents—some of whom were American citizens.But since they have agreed to pay the fine and “cooperate fully” with investigators—and never again obtain security clearances, which will ostensibly keep them away from classified materials—prosecutors have agreed to drop all charges in three years.Read more at The Daily Beast.
