Hollywood movie studios launched new legal action Tuesday against operators of sites that help connect people to movies on three major peer-to-peer file-sharing networks.

In the United States and the United Kingdom, the Motion Picture Association of America, the main lobbying arm of U.S. film studios, filed civil lawsuits against more than 100 operators of BitTorrent "tracker" servers that point to locations where digital files of movies, music and other content can be found.

CNBC's Larry Kudlow is asking publicly what many voters have pondered privately: is President Barack Obama exploding welfare to buy votes?

As Kudlow explains, Mr. Obama's welfare explosion cannot solely be explained by the dismal economy; rather, something known as "categorical eligibility" now allows citizens eligible for one welfare program to automatically or "categorically" be eligible to receive several more. The practice, which began under President George W. Bush, has skyrocketed under Mr. Obama. Indeed, as Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) explained in a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack earlier this year, research by University of Chicago economist Casey Mulligan has concluded that "most of the increased spending on welfare programs (including food stamps) since 2007 is the result of expansions in eligibility, rather than increases in the number of people who would have been eligible under pre-recession rules."

In an explosive report set to send shockwaves through official Washington, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) released a 108-page GAI investigation into the threat of foreign and fraudulent Internet campaign donations in U.S. federal elections.

Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president's campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to "gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks." There's more...

A new report by the Government Accountability Institute finds that JP Morgan has made at least $560,492,596 since 2004 processing the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards of 18 of the 24 states it has under contract for the food stamp program.

Indeed, JP Morgan's Christopher Paton told Bloomberg News that food stamps are big business for the big bank: "We are the largest processor of food stamps in the country...[the EBT program] is a very important business to JP Morgan. It's an important business in terms of its size and scale.... Right now volumes have gone through the roof in the past couple of years or so. The good news from JP Morgan's perspective is the infrastructure that we built has been able to cope with that increase in volume."

If there were any doubt that Eliot Spitzer has spiraled down into further delusion and irrelevance, it was erased Friday afternoon in an embarrassing and bizarre shootout between the disgraced former NY Attorney General and CNBC's Maria Bartiromo.

At issue were allegations that a trove of private emails may exist showing the former purchaser of high-priced prostitutes launched a personally motivated prosecution against former AIG chief Hank Greenberg. Of the eight charges Spitzer brought against Greenberg, six have been dropped, with the last two in the process of being dismissed, according to Greenberg's lawyer. Still, throughout the interview Spitzer alleged numerous times that Greenberg engaged in "fraud," despite the fact that no federal or state court has ever found as much. "You can't say 'fraudulent' because there's no indictment. You can't just throw around the word 'fraud,'" challenged CNBC reporter Maria Bartiromo. "Why have six out of eight charges been dropped?"

Gov. Jerry Brown finished deciding late Sunday the fate of bills passed by the Legislature, signing into law a measure that bans the open carrying of handguns in California.

The handgun bill, AB144 by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-La Canada Flintridge (Los Angeles County), takes effect Jan. 1 and was backed by law enforcement officials throughout the state who said the practice created a public safety issue as the public and police cannot tell whether the weapons are loaded. It creates a misdemeanor for people who carry unloaded handguns, though gun-rights advocates who have pushed the issue say they will respond by carrying long guns, such as rifles and shotguns.

Investigations in Oregon, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, New York and other states have in recent years found disturbing evidence of police officers abusing steroids. But Connecticut police insist they've never seen it here.

A national expert who's been studying steroid use in all types of subcultures from athletics to the military believes "tens of thousands" of cops all across the U.S. are on such illegal drugs. But the head of the largest police union in this state, a man who spent 20 years with the Milford P.D., says the issue has never even been raised in any Connecticut disciplinary hearing he knows about. A recent scandal in New Jersey turned up 248 public safety officials - most of them cops - who were getting steroids prescribed by a steroid-abusing doctor, and New Jersey officials responded by ordering random police drug testing. But a Connecticut State Police spokesman says his department doesn't do that. Just last month, a federal appeals court ruled a New Jersey police chief was within his rights to order several of his officers to undergo testing for steroids, strip them of their weapons and put them on desk duty.

In a very strange and sad story developing out of Pennsylvania, one of Michael Bloomberg's "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" members has found himself in jail.

James Schiliro, mayor of Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, was arrested this past Thursday for official oppression, reckless endangerment, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, and furnishing a minor with alcohol. Schiliro ordered a local policemen to bring him a 20-year-old male to his home. At which point Schiliro allegedly served the minor alcohol and tried to have sex with him. When the minor refused, Schiliro apparently retrieved multiple handguns, where he then proceeded to fire one of them in the minors direction as a form of intimidation.
