Today is July 30 and these are the stories I am watching.
1-Trump: Sharpton a ‘con man’
The war of words between President Trump and House Oversight and Reform Committee Chair Elijah Cummings, D-Md.,over the condition of Baltimore and the border crisis has expanded to include the Rev. Al Sharpton, a staunch Cummings supporter. Sharpton held a press conference Monday to condemn Trump’s criticism of Cummings. Ahead of the Sharpton press conference, Trump called the activist a “con man” and “troublemaker.” Sharpton replied by calling the president a “bigot.” Trump then claimed that “Billions of dollars have been pumped in” to Baltimore. “The money was stolen or wasted,” Trump tweeted. “Ask Elijah Cummings where it went. He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!” Deputy White House Pres Secretary Hogan Gidley had advice for Trump critics: Consider Sharpton’s history and don’t take his advice.
DML: Trump should make these sort of tweets on a daily basis. Expose the criminals each and every day.

3-Capital One breach leaves 106 million vulnerable
Capital One Financial Corp., the fifth-largest U.S. credit-card issuer, said Monday that a hacker accessed the personal information of approximately 106 million card customers and applicants, one of the largest ever data breaches of a big bank. The announcement came the same day the alleged hacker, Paige A. Thompson, was arrested by federal agents in Seattle. The bulk of the exposed data involves information submitted by customers and small businesses in their applications for Capital One credit cards from 2005 through early 2019, the bank said. The information included addresses, dates of birth and self-reported income.
DML: Any bank endorsed by Alec Baldwin is never getting my business. “What’s in your wallet?” Ain’t a Capital One card, thank goodness.
4-Jury: Katy Perry ripped off Christian rap song
Katy Perry is getting in trouble for stealing from music made for the Lord. A jury on Monday found that the pop idol’s 2013 hit “Dark Horse” improperly copied a 2009 Christian rap song.Monday’s decision, setting up arguments over how much the singer and other defendants will owe, was returned by a nine-member federal jury in a Los Angeles courtroom. It came five years after Marcus Gray and two co-authors first sued alleging “Dark Horse” stole from “Joyful Noise,” a song Gray released under the stage name Flame.
DML: Another liberal big mouth proves she’s no good.
5- Study shows CBD can help with healthy weight loss.
A recent study has linked cannabidiol (CBD) to healthy weight loss. The research, published in the journal Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, linked cannabidiol to three causes of “fat browning”, which turns the dangerous white fat associated with obesity and diabetes into hard-working brown fat cells. These actively aid weight loss by burning extra calories through thermogenesis, your body’s heat-production process. What’s more, CBD reduces the expression of proteins involved in creating new fat cells, and it boosts the number of mitochondria in your brown fat cells. This could further increase their fat-stripping power, the scientists suggest.
