A major retail worker union is begging customers not to harass or abuse workers over the holidays

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 18:32
  • The RWDSU sent out a statement asking for customers to treat workers better this holiday season.
  • Nearly 60% of workers in a recent study said that customers treat them worse during the holidays.
  • The union emphasized that shortages and delays are not the fault of workers.

Retail workers are pleading with customers not to treat them poorly this Black Friday.

The Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU) put out a statement ahead of the shopping holiday imploring customers to treat workers with dignity and respect.

"Our members are eager to welcome customers back to stores this holiday season, but as incidents of harassment, violence, and hate continue to rise in stores workers are worried about their physical and mental safety," the union's statement said. The RWDSU represents over 100,000 US workers across retail chains, grocery stores, warehouses, and other industries.

Workers in service and customer-facing roles across the economy have spoken out about abusive customers and difficult work conditions lately. In a new survey of 2,000 workers, 59% said that treatment from customers gets worse around the holidays. The conditions could get even more stressful for the 40% of workers who said that they were afraid their employers wouldn't have enough workers to handle the busy retail season, and 43% said that their employers haven't done anything to prepare for increased workloads.

"The supply chain is still precarious as we emerge from the pandemic. Retail workers bear the brunt of shoppers' frustration," the union's statement said. "Tempers quickly rise when customers hear that coveted holiday items are stuck on shipping containers at sea and have been backordered for months; and especially if they've gone to multiple stores only to go home empty-handed."

Backlogs at ports are reaching historic highs combined with a lack of workers and overloaded warehouses to make holiday shipping slower this year, Grace Kay reported for Insider.

Instances of workers on the receiving end of abuse and extreme disrespect from customers have continued to appear over the past 18 months. Workers have reported attacks and aggressive customers in restaurants, big box stores, on flights, and in other settings. This treatment is bolstered by the "the customer is always right" mantra that gave customers license to treat workers poorly, Avery Hartmans reported for Insider.

"Workers are not to blame, and stores should provide security, safety protocols, and training to handle irate shoppers this season," RWDSU president Stuart Appelbaum said.

The UK will spend $667,000 to train staffers at the top finance regulator to identify crypto terrorist financing

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 18:29
  • The UK's top financial watchdog is looking for a contractor to train staff on spotting the use of crypto in financing terrorism. 
  • The Financial Conduct Authority has a £500,000 ($667,0000) contract to hire the services of a third-party specialist. 
  • The UK and the US have agreed to step up cooperation over threats from cybercrime. 

The UK's financial regulator is looking to hire a contractor that will train its staff to spot risks of money laundering and financing of terrorism through crypto assets.

The Financial Conduct Authority will pay a third-party firm for its services under a £500,000 contract ($667,000), according to a public notification, with the call for a contractor to remain open until December 16. 

The contractor should "provide access to a platform that can support the robust and efficient analysis of cryptoasset blockchain data and provide training and ongoing support in the use of this platform," the agency said. 

The notification was posted last week as was a statement by the US Department of Justice saying the UK and the US will work more closely together to combat terrorism and cybercrime. 

"Both the Deputy Attorney General and the Home Secretary committed and agreed to heighten the focus on illicit use of cryptocurrency and ransomware, as well as to continue the dialogue about emerging threats to national security," said the US Department of Justice, referring to US Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco and UK Home Secretary Priti Patel. 

In one case related to cryptocurrency risks in terrorism, a 28-year-old sales consultant in Britain was reportedly sentenced to 12 years in prison in September after being convicted of using bitcoin to fund the Islamic State terror group in Syria

The FCA earlier this year said a significantly large number of cryptocurrency firms weren't not meeting required anti-money laundering standards, leaving them to fall short in protecting against crime.

The US's refusal to accept reality in Ukraine could get a lot of people killed

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 18:27
President Joe Biden with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in the Oval Office, September 1, 2021
  • US officials continue offering security assurances to Ukraine amid escalating Russian military pressure.
  • Biden must honestly assess if it's worth starting a war over a territory with little significance to US security.
  • Sascha Glaeser is a research associate at Defense Priorities.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently met with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba in Washington and declared that the US commitment to Ukraine's security and territorial integrity is "ironclad."

The meeting between the two officials came as Moscow stationed 90,000 troops near the Ukrainian border, leading many to fear that a large-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine could be imminent. Ukraine has been mired in a war with Russia and Russian-backed separatists in the eastern Donbas region of the country since 2014.

Blinken's comments are just the latest example of a top Biden administration official failing to accept the geopolitical reality of Ukraine.

In September, President Joe Biden met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and reiterated that "the United States remains firmly committed to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russian aggression." A joint statement released after that meeting declared "the United States supports Ukraine's right to decide its own future foreign policy course free from outside interference, including with respect to Ukraine's aspirations to join NATO."

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said the same during a visit to Kyiv in October.

Is Biden really prepared to send young American men and women to fight and die over Ukraine? This kind of rhetoric from the Biden administration does not serve US interests and counterproductively increases the risk of the United States being dragged into a war with Russia.

By continuing to provide quasi-security guarantees to Ukraine, Washington is playing a dangerous game of escalation with Moscow. Russia's deployment of 90,000 troops near the Ukrainian border is likely Moscow calling Washington's bluff.

The United States has provided $2.5 billion in military aid to Ukraine since hostilities broke out. Despite this significant investment, the war has continued because the underlying geopolitical causes of the conflict have not been addressed — namely Russia's concern that Ukraine will be granted NATO membership.

Moscow fears Ukraine's accession into the alliance will result in US and NATO troops stationed directly on Russia's border. Moscow views the prevention of this outcome as a vital strategic interest and will do whatever is necessary to achieve its objective — including direct military intervention in Ukraine.

Indeed, Russian President Vladimir Putin has made it clear that NATO expansion in Ukraine would cross a "red line." Crossing that red line risks a sudden Russian attack on Ukraine which has the potential to escalate out of control.

With Russia already at war in eastern Ukraine, adding Kyiv to the alliance could result in catastrophe. NATO's collective-defense clause could require the United States and all other NATO allies to militarily defend Ukraine.

Given the risk of nuclear escalation, the Biden administration must honestly assess if it is worth starting World War III over a territory with little significance to overall US security.

Russia has proven that it is willing to bear significant monetary and human costs to prevent a western-aligned Ukraine. Years of tough economic sanctions and the estimated loss of several hundred Russian soldiers has done little to change Russia's objectives in Ukraine.

Unlike Russia, the United States simply does not have a strong enough interest in Ukraine worth risking a potential nuclear war over.

Ending the conflict will require a comprehensive political settlement that takes Russia's geopolitical anxiety into account. One may not agree with Moscow's security concerns; however, it is necessary to address them in pursuit of a peaceful resolution. Such a settlement should see Ukraine's territorial sovereignty restored and position Ukraine as a neutral buffer state, neither aligned with Russia nor the West.

A neutral Ukraine would not seek membership in NATO or any Russian security institution, nor would it allow either side to station military forces on its territory. Instead, this policy would reflect Ukraine's precarious geographical reality of being a large, but relatively weak, state situated between Russia and NATO Europe.

It is natural to feel sympathy for Ukraine's unfortunate circumstances. Continued US military aid and offering Ukraine false hopes that NATO will come to its defense only prolong the conflict and increase the risk of war between the United States and Russia.

Working toward a realistic resolution in the form of a neutral and non-aligned Ukraine could provide an opportunity for the world's two largest nuclear powers to form a stable and predictable relationship. The Biden administration would be wise to reverse its current escalatory course with Russia and pursue a US-Ukraine policy that actually increases US security.

Tesla fans flood JPMorgan's Yelp page with 1-star reviews as Elon Musk spars with the bank

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 18:25
Elon Musk.
  • JPMorgan's Yelp page was temporarily disabled after Tesla fans bombarded it with one-star reviews.
  • Elon Musk had said he'd give JPMorgan a one-star review if it didn't drop a lawsuit against Tesla.
  • The bank sued Tesla over Musk's failed bid to take the company private in 2018. 

Elon Musk fans aren't happy with JPMorgan right now, and they've taken to the company's Yelp page to prove it.

Egged on by the technoking himself, Tesla fans hit the US' largest bank's Yelp page with a slew of one-star reviews on Monday over the bank's $162 million lawsuit against the electric vehicle maker.

The bank says that Tesla breached a contract related to stock warrants it held after Musk tweeted in 2018 that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private. The barrage of bad ratings was inspired by Musk's comments to The Wall Street Journal that day about the lawsuit.

"If JPM doesn't withdraw their lawsuit, I will give them a one star review on Yelp," the CEO told the Journal. "This is my final warning!"

By Tuesday morning, JPMorgan's Yelp page had dozens of negative reviews, including: 

  • "JP Morgan Sucks from a Tesla owner."
  • "That's what you get for playing with Elon."
  • "They got my order wrong. I wanted curly fries."
  • "One star only for their frivolous lawsuits against their business partners, particularly against Tesla."
  • "I'm here for Tesla obviously. Giving u one star for suing the company."

A few Tesla-related ratings slipped past Yelp's defenses into the recommended reviews. Later Tuesday, posting new reviews of the bank was disabled, Yelp said. 

"This business recently received increased public attention, which often means people come to this page to post their views on the news," an alert on the page said. "While we don't take a stand one way or the other when it comes to this incident, we've temporarily disabled the posting of content to this page as we work to investigate the content you see here reflects actual consumer experiences rather than the recent events. Please note that we apply this same policy regardless of the business and regardless of the topic at issue."

Musk hasn't spoken publicly about the review bombing but responded to a tweet parodying a one-star Yelp review of JPMorgan that says, "Used to come here. Service has degraded. Place is just living off its name. Doesn't accept DOGE." The Twitter user captioned the image, "Elon's Yelp review of JPMorgan is lit."

Musk responded with the fire and laughing emojis.

—Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 23, 2021

 

Yelp did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Tesla could not be reached for comment. 

"We have provided Tesla multiple opportunities to fulfill its contractual obligations, so it is unfortunate that they have forced this issue into litigation," JPMorgan told the Wall Street Journal of its suit.

For the third time in one month, Southern California ports delayed doling out millions of dollars in fines for lingering shipping containers

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 18:22
  • On Monday, Southern California ports delayed collecting fines for cargo that had lingered too long.
  • The fines went into effect on November 1, but won't be collected until at least November 29.
  • The fines have been delayed three times since they were announced on October 25.

The ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach delayed the collection of millions of dollars in punitive fines for shipping companies that had let cargo containers stack up at terminals on Monday — the same day the locations were scheduled to begin the process.

The two ports pushed the deadline back to November 29. It's the third time that the fines have been delayed since they were first announced in October.

The executive directors of the twin ports said in a in a press release on Monday that there has been a 33% decline in idling cargo since the fines were announced.

Last week, the executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, Gene Seroka, said the ports had seen "significant improvement" in efforts to clear the containers out of the shipping terminals.

"Clearly, everyone is working together to speed the movement of the cargo and reduce the backlog of ships off the coast as quickly as possible," Port of Long Beach's executive director, Mario Cordero, said last week.

But, the 33% decline in shipping container backlogs might not be as optimistic as it sounds.

Data from the Port of Los Angeles shows that most of the containers at the site were moved when the fines were first announced. To date, at the Port of Los Angeles alone, over 26,000 containers have remained at the location for over 9 days — meaning the aggregate cost for the containers in Los Angeles would come to over $2.6 million from the first day past the grace period and climb to over $100 million per day within a week.

When the fines were initially announced, shipping container dwell times at both ports were at an all-time high and 58,900 containers were set to be fined.  

The shipping containers began accruing $100 per day fines on November 1. The fees increase by $100 each day the containers that will move by truck remain in the ports past 9 days, while goods that will move by rail incur fees after 6 days. 

Multiple experts previously told Insider they expect the fees to do little to move the goods out of the ports, though the extra costs will likely mean higher prices for consumers. Last week, 85 business groups, including the National Retail Federation, penned a letter to the Federal Maritime Commission, warning the charges will be passed further down the supply chain, Freight Waves reported.

The new daily fees would be an add-on to even higher demurrage fines. Carriers are charged demurrage fines for every day the container stays at the port past its allotted time — typically between four to seven days after the container is unloaded from the ship. The fines range from $75 to $300 per day and can grow the longer the container remains in the port.

Earlier this month, Hapag-Lloyd warned in its earnings call that the fees may also lead to an increase in abandoned cargo.

MacBooks already on sale for Black Friday, and deals include a MacBook Air for $949

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 18:02

Prices are accurate at the time of publication.

Black Friday is around the corner and officially starts on November 26, and combined with Cyber Monday 2021 on November 29, it's undoubtedly the best time of year to pick up a new MacBook Air or MacBook Pro on a sweet discount.

Apple now only sells MacBook laptops with the company's own M1 line of processors. The 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air run on the standard M1, while the newer 14-inch MacBook Pro runs on the M1 Pro, and the new 16-inch MacBook Pro runs on the M1 Max. 

There will surely be Intel-based MacBook deals out there, which have their place. However, Apple's M1 processor is so far ahead in terms of performance and price than Intel-based MacBooks that we're only recommending M1-based MacBooks.

As of the time of writing, however, early Black Friday deals on Apple laptops are pretty scarce. We've already encountered deals that have gone out of stock within the time this article was written. We'll update this page as soon as new deals pop up.

Best early MacBook deals for Black Friday 2021

MacBook Air M1 (2020)

The MacBook Air is the least expensive laptop you can buy from Apple, and yet it runs on the same M1 processor as the 13-inch MacBook Pro M1. That means it's equal in power to the 13-inch MacBook Pro for $200 less. The main difference is that the 13-inch MacBook Pro comes with a built-in fan that's designed to better cool the M1 processor for intense workloads, especially video or photo editing. The MacBook Pro also has slightly better battery life, too. Otherwise, it's the Mac laptop that most people should opt for.

You can read our review of the MacBook Air M1 here

Apple MacBook Air (M1)The latest MacBook Air released in late 2020 gains Apple's new M1 processor, which brings impressively fast performance and long battery life, for under $1,000, making it the best Apple laptop overall.$949.00 FROM B&HOriginally $999.00 | Save 5%$949.00 FROM AMAZONOriginally $999.00 | Save 5%$999.00 FROM APPLE$949.99 FROM BEST BUYOriginally $999.99 | Save 5%

MacBook Pro 13-inch M1 (2020)

The MacBook Pro is barely thicker or heavier than the MacBook Air, and it comes with better battery life and a slightly brighter screen. The built-in fan will help for longer intensive workloads.

Keep this article bookmarked throughout the Black Friday shopping season, as we'll be updating it regularly with the latest MacBook deals and keep scrolling to read more about why the best deals are worth your time and money.

MacBook Black Friday FAQsWhat MacBook deals did we see last year?

Last year, we saw the M1 MacBook Air go down to $899 from its usual $999 price. We also saw the M1 13-inch MacBook Pro get up to $150 off.

We saw deals for Intel-based MacBook laptops, since they were still around, and we can surmise that we'll see something similar for this year's M1-based MacBook Pro laptops. Last year, the 13-inch Intel-based MacBook Pro was between $150 to $230 off, and the 16-inch MacBook Pro had deals that took up to $300 off. 

When will MacBook deals start?

MacBook deals have already started, but we're expecting the best deals on Black Friday itself. The best deals may not stick around during the Thanksgiving weekend, but they could pick back up on Cyber Monday. 

Should I wait for Black Friday to buy MacBook products?

That's a tough one. MacBook laptops with deals can fly off the digital shelves very quickly considering their popularity, especially when the best deals hit on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you're looking for the best deals on a MacBook laptop, you'll likely have to be very active on Black Friday and Cyber Monday rather than casually perusing — keep this page open on your computer to get the latest on deals and when they're in stock.

This book encourages readers to overcome overconfidence and embrace not knowing everything.

Trump was upset by his connection to Sean Parnell's faltering Senate campaign and blamed Donald Jr. for the fallout after his endorsement: report

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 17:46
Sean Parnell.
  • Trump in recent weeks was dismayed by his link to Sean Parnell's faltering campaign, Politico said.
  • Trump had endorsed Parnell and reportedly blamed Donald Jr. for his ties to the Senate campaign.
  • Parnell suspended his campaign Monday after losing custody of his children amid abuse allegations.

Former President Donald Trump in recent weeks expressed dismay at the state of Sean Parnell's Senate campaign in Pennsylvania and blamed his son Donald Jr. for his ties to the faltering campaign, Politico reported.

Parnell, an Army veteran and former congressional candidate who was highly touted by Trump's son and endorsed by the former president in September, suspended his campaign on Monday after losing a child-custody battle.

A judge in Butler County, Pennsylvania, awarded Parnell's estranged wife, Laurie Snell, primary custody and sole legal custody of their three children, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Earlier this month, Snell testified that Parnell choked her until she fought back to escape and that he hit their children and repeatedly hurled obscenities at her, The Inquirer reported.

With the ensuing turmoil surrounding Parnell, the Republican candidate chose to end his once promising campaign.

"There is nothing more important to me than my children, and while I plan to ask the court to reconsider, I can't continue with a Senate campaign," he said in a statement on Monday. "My focus right now is 100% on my children, and I want them to know I do not have any other priorities and will never stop fighting for them."

A source told Politico that before Parnell's exit, Trump was "fixated" on the situation, expressing disappointment with being connected to the campaign's struggles, and couldn't believe the developments in Parnell's custody battle. Donald Jr. had been a catalyst for his father's endorsement of Parnell, Politico reported, adding that the deterioration of the Pennsylvania Republican's campaign was disconcerting to the former president.

Despite Snell's allegations earlier this month, Trump did not withdraw his support for Parnell.

Trump's team had moved forward with a January fundraiser for Parnell at the former president's Mar-a-Lago Club in South Florida, according to Politico.

Trump's and Parnell's teams did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment. 

The GOP is now tasked with getting a handle on the still fluid Senate race in Pennsylvania as it seeks to rally behind a successor to the retiring two-term Sen. Pat Toomey.

With Parnell in the rearview mirror, the remaining Republican candidates include Jeff Bartos, a real-estate developer, and Carla Sands, who served as the US ambassador to Denmark under Trump. David McCormick, a combat veteran who runs the prominent hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, has also been mentioned as a prospective candidate. Former Rep. Ryan Costello, a moderate Republican from the vote-rich Philadelphia suburbs who served in Congress from 2015 to 2019, might also jump into the race, a source told Politico.

And Mehmet Öz, the cardiothoracic surgeon and longtime television personality known as Dr. Oz, has made some behind-the-scenes moves to enter the race.

Democrats see Pennsylvania — a state narrowly carried by President Joe Biden in 2020 — as one of their best pickup opportunities in their quest to retain control of the Senate next year.

Democratic candidates in the race include Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, Montgomery County Commissioner Valerie Arkoosh, state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, and US Rep. Conor Lamb.

Tech billionaire whose ex-staff allege he kept a 'harem' of women and schemed to kill his critics accuses the New York Post of defamation

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 17:36
Musician Won-G, Mike Goguen, and Andrew South arrive at The Grossman Burn Foundation's "Art Of Humanity" Gala at SLS Hotel on October 8, 2010 in Beverly Hills, California.
  • Michael Goguen is accusing the New York Post of defamation after the tabloid reported on a lawsuit filed against him.
  • The tech billionaire was a former partner at venture capital firm Sequoia Capital.
  • Goguen says allegations that he recruited women for sex and threatened to have those who would expose him killed are "ridiculous and defamatory."

Tech billionaire Michael Goguen is accusing the New York Post of defamation after the newspaper ran a story about a lawsuit that alleges Goguen used his fortune to run an illegal enterprise that recruits, transports, and pays off women for sex. 

Insider has viewed a copy of a letter that a representative for Goguen sent to the Post, which reported on the lawsuit Saturday in an article by staffer Isabel Vincent.

"Ms. Vincent and the Post either knew the statements in the article were false, or acted with a reckless disregard as to their truth," reads the letter from Bruce E. Van Dalsem, an attorney representing Goguen.

Goguen's attorneys sought to dismiss the lawsuit, which was first filed in February, in June, claiming the plaintiffs didn't have standing to bring the lawsuit and failed to describe a pattern of illegal activity.

Four ex-employees of Goguen's — Matthew Marshall, John Maguire, Keegan Bonnet, and Anthony Aguilar — filed a significantly amended version of the lawsuit in September. In it, they allege that the 57-year-old billionaire used his wealth and influence to run a sex trafficking operation in Whitefish, Montana, a town of just over 7,700 nestled in the Rocky Mountains.

According to the amended complaint, Goguen had an "extramarital sex life involving tens of women at any given time, which Goguen referred to as 'the harem,'" and made Marshall his fixer. Goguen frequently sent Marshall graphic photos and descriptions of his sexual encounters, and showed him a spreadsheet of around 5,000 women he had sex with, the lawsuit alleges.

The billionaire paid women to "have sex with him, to perform other deviant sexual acts with him," and had sex with one acquaintance's wife and 16-year-old babysitter, the lawsuit alleges. When people who learned of Goguen's lifestyle threatened to expose it, the lawsuit alleges he tried to have them killed.

But Goguen alleges Marshall may have an ulterior motive for throwing accusations his way. According to a November 5 article from the Flathead Beacon, Marshall struck a deal to plead guilty to federal charges of tax evasion and defrauding Goguen. Marshall is scheduled to be sentenced in March 2022.

In a statement to Insider, a spokesperson for Goguen accused Marshall of filing the lawsuit in the hope that it would help him with his criminal case, prior to his plea deal. Goguen's attorneys said in the letter sent to the Post that the other plaintiffs are Marshall's former partner, a cousin, and a man who participated in an alleged money laundering scheme with Marshall. 

In a separate statement to the Post, Goguen called the claims "ridiculous and defamatory," noting that Marshall was a "recently convicted felon" seeking "to cause my family and I as much damage as possible before his upcoming sentencing."

"It's hard to believe that we're at a time in society when disgusting nonsense like this — crafted from the evil and twisted imaginations of a convicted felon to openly and publicly retaliate against his victim — is given the same weight by the media as the fact and evidence-based conclusions reached by the FBI and the criminal justice system," Goguen said.

An attorney for the Post didn't respond to Insider's request for comment on Monday.

Goguen tasked his head of security with paying off women, the lawsuit alleges 

Marshall, an alumnus of the State Department, began working for Goguen in 2013 to oversee private security operations.

Over time, the lawsuit claims, Goguen made Marshall his right-hand man by installing him as vice president or a trustee of various legal entities.

Goguen also tasked Marshall with paying off women and property expenses so that his then-wife wouldn't find out about his affairs, the lawsuit alleges.

"At Goguen's direction, Marshall was being asked to purchase, out of his personal accounts, vehicles, jewelry, earnest money deposits on properties, and to provide cash or other items for Goguen's mistresses, or as hush-money payoffs," the lawsuit alleges.

Goguen also asked Marshall to take care of the women in his "harem" in other ways, according to the amended complaint.

On one occasion, Goguen asked Marshall to fly to Africa to help out two Playboy Playmates on a safari who said they lost their passports, the lawsuit alleges. Marshall declined to fly there, the complaint continues, but used local contacts to help the women out.

Paying and transporting the women to and from Goguen's properties in the Whitefish area amounted to sex-trafficking, the lawsuit alleges. 

"Goguen would traffic and pay for his harem of women to have sex with him, or to birth illegitimate children with him, often by purchasing for them through means of interstate commerce, cars, houses, and by giving cash or other items of value for these women to be a part of the Goguen Sexual Scheme," the lawsuit says.

Goguen is also accused of asking his security chief to kill people who confronted him

On several occasions, Goguen suggested or instructed that Marshall kill people who confronted him or otherwise threatened to expose his lifestyle, the lawsuit alleges.

The first time, according to the complaint, was after Goguen slept with a friend's wife and 16-year-old babysitter. Goguen paid for the friend's wife's legal expenses, which the lawsuit claims made the ensuing divorce "longer and more expensive than it would have been otherwise."

He also paid for a security team to track the friend's whereabouts and harass him and his children, the lawsuit alleges.

Goguen is accused of amassing land and power in Whitefish, Montana.

The lawsuit alleges that on September 19, 2014, Goguen sent Marshall a message through the encrypted messaging app Wickr, under the alias batman234, where he complains Marshall's efforts hadn't gone far enough.

"[REDACTED] has pushed me too far and his occasional reminders he might help blow the lid off my personal life requires an extreme response," the message quoted in the lawsuit says. "The cyber route isn't having the impact on him that I was hoping to achieve. Buddy, he's [REDACTED] with my life, career, etc. and the potential for me being destroyed if he gets traction with the authorities or press is significant. This requires an extreme response."

Goguen then suggested killing the friend, the lawsuit alleges.

"He will [REDACTED] destroy the 'bigger picture' for us if he's not stopped. He needs to be killed," the message included in the lawsuit says. "I know that's a VERY big ask but we are in defcon 5. We can discuss details in person but we do NOT have conversations about this on our cell phones. Wickr only…"

Goguen then sent Marshall three of the friend's addresses and told him "that last one is up in Lake Tahoe, which is a lot less populated than his other loc," the lawsuit alleges. He also wanted Marshall to target the friend's phones "for cyber crimes," according to the complaint.

"Marshall did not follow through on Goguen's solicitation to have [the friend] hacked or murdered at 'a lot less populated' location," according to the complaint. "Marshall explained to Goguen that it 'doesn't work this way' and sought to dissuade Goguen from going to extreme measures against his enemies."

The lawsuit further alleges that, on one occasion in 2015, Goguen asked Marshall to execute a man whose girlfriend Goguen slept with and who threatened to reveal aspects of the billionaire's lifestyle to his then-wife. And on another occasion later that year, after a hacker Goguen hired refused to surveil and harass his enemies and threatened to call law enforcement, Goguen directed Marshall to "gun him down," according to the complaint.

The lawsuit alleges that Goguen used his Silicon Valley fortune to traffic women in Whitefish

Goguen is worth around $5 billion, according to The New York Post. The billionaire seemingly accrued his fortune working at Sequoia Capital, a top technology-focused venture capital firm based in Menlo Park, California. In 2012, Goguen told the Flathead Beacon that he'd been part of the Sequoia Capital team that decided to make early investments in tech giants like Google, Yahoo, and YouTube. A 2014 profile from Forbes lists Goguen as one of the top partners at Sequoia. 

He began using some of that money to make a splash in Whitefish and the surrounding region. The Flathead Beacon reported that Goguen had spent "$10 million in personal funds" to help the region establish a "state trust land plan" resulting in the Whitefish Trail; furnished law enforcement with "state-of-the-art helicopters;" and poured money into local philanthropic causes. Goguen said he was just giving back to the community.

"I view coming up here as a relief valve," he told the Flathead Beacon. "It's a wonderful counterbalance to my day job."

Representatives for the city of Whitefish didn't respond to Insider's request for comment on Monday. 

According to the lawsuit, Goguen's vast 3,200-acre estate outside Whitefish includes a 75,000 square-foot house; another 10,000 square-foot lake house; other houses for family members and staff; and a 25,000 square-foot underground bunker designed to withstand nuclear blasts. The lawsuit also alleges Goguen owned "safe houses" in the area where he conducted extramarital affairs with women, including ones he trafficked.

In the lawsuit, Marshall alleges that Goguen poached him from his job at the US State Department, and that the two men founded the Amyntor Group, a private security business. Marshall's co-plaintiffs, Aguilar, Bonnet, and Maguire, were recruited to work for Amyntor. The lawsuit alleges that when their work relationship soured, Goguen conspired to "falsely accuse Marshall of wire fraud, money laundering, and tax evasion to the FBI and IRS." 

This isn't the first time that Goguen's sex life and financial dealings have come under scrutiny. In 2016, the billionaire's former mistress, Amber Laurel Baptiste, accused Goguen in a lawsuit of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, as well as human trafficking. According to the recent lawsuit against Goguen, the billionaire had at one point suggested Marshall kill Baptiste as well.

Baptiste ultimately lost her lawsuit and was ordered to pay more than $10 million to Goguen, as well as abide by a restraining order. A spokesperson for Goguen said in a statement to Insider that Baptiste is the only person to accuse Goguen of misconduct.

These are the 10 talked about stocks on Reddit's WallStreetBets

Businessinsider - Tue, 11/23/2021 - 17:32
  • Reddit's WallStreetBets forum entered the mainstream during the January GameStop craze. 
  • Driving stocks like GameStop to AMC Entertainment, retail investors congregating on the subreddit are a force in the stock market.
  • These are the 10 most popular stocks WallStreetBets is talking about right now.

Following which stocks Reddit's WallStreetBets crowd is talking about this year has paid off, as several have gone through epic rallies and seen heightened volatility. 

From GameStop in January to AMC Entertainment in June, the more than 11 million-member forum has driven the conversation in so-called meme stocks that have exploded higher amid overwhelming demand from retail investors. The surge in stocks with shaky fundamentals has led to several hedge fund blowups that were caught on the opposite side of the trade betting against the company in question.

GameStop's short-squeeze, in-part led by the WallStreetBets crowd, led to a more than 50% drawdown in multibillion-dollar hedge fund Melvin Capital. Meanwhile, the sharp rally in struggling movie theater chain AMC Entertainment caused billions of dollars in losses for short-sellers in May and June.

As traders look to replicate the success of WallStreetBets stocks, one data aggregator is compiling the most mentioned stocks on Reddit's forum.
