In other news, over 24 countries including the United States say North Korea has been breaking caps on imports of fuel set by the U.N. Security Council in 2017. The fuel is presumed to be coming from Russia.

Meanwhile, confidence among America's CEO's has fallen to the lowest level in almost three years according to Business Roundtable.

Finally, The Wall Street Journal reported that internal emails from Facebook show Mark Zuckerberg knew the platform was a privacy nightmare and even questioned the company's practices before moving ahead with everything anyway.

The report says employees at the company are concerned that the emails could come under scrutiny during an investigation from the Federal Trade Commission.

The FTC is investigating whether security lapses related to the Cambridge Analytica scandal violated a 2012 consent decree between the agency and Facebook, according to the report.

The emails, which were described to the Journal reporters but not seen, reportedly show that Zuckerberg raised questions about how the company was sharing data with third-party developers, suggesting he knew of potential problems.

      “Art of the Steal” Don’t pay people the money you contractually owe them.

      Y’know, I work for a sub-contractor on the office side and it amazes not that the majority of people are conservative (which in and of itself I don’t understand in this industry but whatever) but that many of them are up with trump. This is a man that would stiff my company if it was under contract with him. From a business perspective how can one not extend the professional courtesy to other contemporaries to not support this asshole? It baffles me.

    The Russian government may be providing the most brutal dictatorship on the planet, that also just happens to be quite determined to develop nuclear weaponry with vital resources such as fuel. Having spent years obsessively carping about, nitpicking and eventually undoing the Iran nuclear deal, what is the response from the party of tough guys?
