Venezuelan leader to Trump: "'Get your pig hands out of here"

President Vladimir Putin pledged the food aid in a telephone conversation with his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro this week, Venezuelan and Russian officials said.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez decried the US sanctions on Twitter as "outrageous and unacceptable".

In March, the Venezuelan Supreme Court temporarily dissolved the National Assembly and assumed the powers of the legislature.

There was an global outcry against the court's de facto annulment of the National Assembly, which the opposition won in late 2015 during an unprecedented economic and social crisis. Those decisions have since been partially reversed.

"President Trump's aggressions against the Venezuelan people, its government and its institutions have surpassed all limits", Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said in a statement on state television, accusing Washington of seeking to destabilize Venezuela and foment foreign intervention.

"“By imposing these targeted sanctions, the United States is supporting the Venezuelan people in their efforts to protect and advance democratic governance in their country", he said.

Ford to cut 10% of global workforce
President Donald Trump throughout his early days in office has pushed for automakers to create jobs in the U.S. Product Development and Ford Credit, which already are improving total operating efficiencies in other ways.

The eight named for sanctions include the president of the Supreme Court, Maikel Moreno, and the seven principal members of the court's Constitutional Chamber.

The sanctions mean that any assets that those people named have in the United States are frozen, and USA businesses and individuals may not do business with them.

Maduro spoke on state television for some two hours on Thursday soon after the sanctions were confirmed but made no mention of them.

Speaking in Washington alongside visiting President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia, Venezuela's neighbor, Trump called the humanitarian situation “a disgrace to humanity” and promised to help fix it, but he offered no new USA approach.

Unlike countries within the US orbit, Russian Federation has stood by Venezuela's side.

Trump's comments came one day after the Venezuelan government announced it was sending more than 2,500 troops to a trouble-hit region on the border with Colombia to try to quell weeks of violence that have claimed 44 lives nationwide.

Former US Rep. Anthony Weiner to plead guilty in sexting case
Weiner has admitted to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor, and won't appeal his sentence. Weiner could potentially avoid jail time , although he'll be required to register as a sex offender.

Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, who had pushed for further sanctions, called the measures a message “to Maduro and his thugs that their actions are not going to go unpunished.”.

Authorities have linked at least 46 deaths to the almost two months of protests.

Elected in 2013, Maduro has accused the opposition of plotting a coup against him with U.S. backing.

The Treasury Department said the eight judges named - out of a total of 32 on the full court - were responsible for some of the more abusive recent legal decisions in Venezuela, including stripping National Assembly members of immunity, voiding laws passed by the assembly and taking on legislative functions.

"Get your hands out of here", Maduro said to the USA president.

"We are ready, all trade agreements have already been signed and very soon Russian Federation will supply Venezuela with 60,000 tons of wheat per month on a stable basis starting from this year", Maduro said, according to state news agency AVN.

Pirated Windows is a risky bet, says security company
The exploit surfaced online back in April with the Shadow Brokers data dump, which Microsoft had already patched on March 14. If these companies are found guilty of being negligent on their security updates , they could be in a lot of trouble.
