Bannon stirs the pot as voting starts in crucial European election

Bannon stirs the pot as voting starts in crucial European electionSteve Bannon, the adviser who guided Donald Trump's "America First" campaign in 2016, is trying to do the same now on an even bigger scale: promoting nationalist-populist parties in many of the 28 countries that begin voting Thursday in elections for the European Union Parliament. He has forged controversial alliances with right-wing parties in Britain, Italy, France and elsewhere, while like-minded leaders in other countries are mired in scandals. He predicts his allies will win nearly a third of the vote, forming a bloc that will undercut much of what the EU has tried to accomplish over the last 25 years.

SpaceX Rockets Were Endangered by Forged Inspection Reports: DOJ

SpaceX Rockets Were Endangered by Forged Inspection Reports: DOJREUTERSAn engineer responsible for inspecting space-vehicle parts that were sold to SpaceX and Department of Defense aerospace contractors has been charged with falsifying inspection reports, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday.James Smalley, 41, worked as a quality assurance engineer at the Rochester, New York-based PMI Industries, where he allegedly falsified signatures on at least 38 documents involving parts used by Elon Musk's SpaceX to build the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy series of crafts. At least 76 parts had falsified inspection reports or were outright rejected-but were still shipped to SpaceX for use, prosecutors allege.Smalley admitted to forging the names of at least three employees and of using his company laptop to copy and paste signatures and stamps onto falsified source inspection reports, according to a criminal complaint. "James Smalley took the act of forgery to a new level," said FBI Buffalo Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert. "A potentially catastrophic level with the potential to not only cost millions of dollars, but also jeopardize years of irreplaceable work."SpaceX Will Launch Human Tissue Into MicrogravityAt least seven NASA space-flight missions and two United States Air Force space-flight missions were affected by such parts from PMI, which has since shuttered, according to the DOJ.If convicted, Smalley faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. "The success of America's reinvigorated space program depends not just on American ingenuity but on American integrity as well," said U.S. Attorney James Kennedy Jr. "Such fraudulent conduct jeopardizes no only the success of the program but the lives of the brave men and women who rely on the integrity of not just the space vehicles themselves but all those who help to design and build them," he added. Smalley is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Rochester on Thursday.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast hereGet our top stories in your inbox every day.

Yemen's Houthis say they attacked Saudi's Najran airport by drone

Yemen's Houthis say they attacked Saudi's Najran airport by droneYemen's Iran-aligned Houthi movement on Thursday launched a drone attack on a Patriot missile battery in the airport of the Saudi city of Najran near the Yemeni border, the group's Al-Masirah TV said on Thursday. The Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis said the drone was intercepted and destroyed by the kingdom's air defenses. The Houthis, who ousted the Saudi-backed Yemeni president from power in the capital Sanaa in 2014, have stepped up missile and drone attacks on Saudi in the past 10 days in a resurgence of tactics that had largely subsided since late last year amid United Nations-led peace efforts.
