German auto giant Volkswagen on Friday said it raced back into the black in 2016 as car sales hit an all-time high, in the latest sign of its "dieselgate" scandal fading into the rearview mirror. VW reported a net profit of 5.1 billion euros ($5.4 billion) last year, recovering from a stinging 1.6-billion-euro loss in the immediate aftermath of the emissions cheating revelations in 2015. "While the past fiscal year posed major challenges for us, despite the crisis the group's operating business gave its best-ever performance," chief executive Matthias Mueller said in a statement. The VW group -- which includes the brands Porsche, Audi and Skoda -- beat analyst expectations with record revenues of 217.3 billion euros, up nearly two percent on the year before. Underlying or operating profit rose to 7.1 billion euros, from a loss of 4.06 billion in 2015, it said.

Flawed takeover bids, bad lending, and a tower of legal bills have left the Royal Bank of Scotland deep in the red Sir Howard Davies, chair of Royal Bank of Scotland, described the £7bn loss the bank rang up last year as “stark”. But it is just a fraction of the bank’s towering total losses of £58bn over the nine years since it was bailed out by the taxpayer. And the bank will rack up even more losses this year.

Chung appeared to fear being assassinated by people involved in the money scheme tied to either the Clintons or Beijing. According to Wead, Chung filmed the "insurance" video after a former U.S. government official visited him while he was in hiding. The official told Chung that his "odds of survival actually increased by going public." In the video, Chung reportedly described how he feared for his life after going public with information about Chinese officials funneling money into Bill Clinton's 1996 reelection campaign. "He also claimed Democrats pressured him to stay silent about his dealings with the Clintons and said the FBI tried to enlist him in a sting against a top Chinese general at a Los Angeles airport," the Daily Mail reported. Chung was a key part of the "Chinagate" scandal in the mid-1990s, when evidence came to light that the Chineses government was funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars into Clinton's reelection campaign through American straw donors.

There are other Facebook pages that just aggregate the news, but we do more than that. We’re an actual organization. We bring in people to the anti-Trump movement.” If there is a media company that these pages seem to be channeling, it would be The Drudge Report, the news aggregation site founded by Matt Drudge, which first launched as a website in 1997. While Drudge has broken some big stories over the years (the biggest of all being the story that brought the Monica Lewinsky scandal to light), his site is focused on cherry-picking interesting and relevant stories and linking out to them so readers can learn more. Drudge plucks them from obscure news sites and large publications alike, and his site has become one of the most influential digital news outlets because of his eye for news. Drudge also brings an authentic, if controversial, conservative voice to his aggregation.
