Walmart's Black Friday Samsung TV Deal Is Insane — and Sales Are Live Right Now

No need to wait until Black Friday itself.
More

Retailers like Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Sears have already published their Black Friday ads. So shoppers know what’s coming down the pike in terms of doorbusters and bargains—including all the best Black Friday TV deals.
But you don’t have to wait until next week to snag a great deal on a TV. Special promotions for early Black Friday TV deals are already live at some stores. In fact, Walmart just launched a “Samsung Savings Event” with big discounts on most items made by the popular electronics brand—including TVs. The vast majority of electronics on sale come with free two-day shipping or, if you’d prefer, free store pickup.
One of the best TV deals we’ve seen so far for the holiday season—including deals coming up for Black Friday 2017—is the Walmart sale on a 55-inch Smart LED TV. The list price given by Walmart is $1,199.99, but right now the TV is on sale for only $447.99.
That’s a discount of a whopping $752 off the list price.
Granted, the $1,200 list price is probably quite inflated. But after checking around to see the best TV deals from Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and other competitors, as well as the best upcoming Black Friday TV deals, Walmart’s sale price for this 55-inch Samsung TV stands out as quite an amazing deal.
Best Buy is advertising a 55-inch Toshiba LED 4K TV for only $279.99 as part of its Black Friday 2017 sale. But it’s not a “smart” TV like the one Walmart has on sale right now, and most buyers generally consider Samsung a superior brand. Target is advertising a Samsung 58-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $649.99 on Black Friday, and while it’s larger and a higher-end model than the 55-incher on sale right now at Walmart, the Walmart TV is arguably a better deal with a price under $450.
Here are some other Samsung deals available at Walmart right now:
• Samsung BD-J5700 Blu-ray & DVD Player with Wi-Fi: $47.99 (listed at $99.99)
• Samsung Galaxy Tab E Lite 7-inch 8 GB Tablet: $67.99 (listed at $119.99)
• Samsung 40-inch 4K Smart LED TV: $327.99 (listed at $549.99)
• Samsung 50-inch Smart LED TV: $477.99 (listed at $899)

'Lighten Up' Says Ohio Supreme Court Justice Who Bragged of Sex With 50 Women

Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O’Neill

Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O’Neill.[/caption] Sitting Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O’Neill boasted Friday on Facebook that he had “been sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females.” In the same post, he lashed out at the “dogs of war” criticizing Sen. Al Franken and said he was “sooooo disappointed by this national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago.” The original version of O’Neill’s post, which he later edited, is below: In an interview later on Friday with Cleveland.com, O’Neill—who is running as a Democratic candidate for the Ohio governorship—cited media scrutiny of Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, saying Moore was being denied due process over allegations of past sexual misconduct. The reaction to the Facebook post was swift, bipartisan and decidedly negative. Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor was among the chorus: “I condemn in no uncertain terms Justice O’Neill’s Facebook post,” O’Connor said in a statement. “No words can convey my shock. This gross disrespect for women shakes the public’s confidence in the integrity of the judiciary.” “We have to be better than this,” tweeted Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, a Republican candidate for governor. “At a moment when our country is having a tough but necessary conversation about sexual harassment and assault, the last thing women needed were Justice O’Neill’s degrading and downright strange comments,” Ohio Democratic Party chairman David Pepper said in a tweet. O’Neill joined the state Supreme Court bench in 2013. Before that he worked as a registered nurse, and he was a judge on Ohio’s Eleventh District Court of Appeals from 1997 until 2007. In another Facebook message late Friday afternoon, O’Neill defended his original post and took aim at “sanctimonious judges who are demanding my resignation,” urging them to “lighten up”:

Saudi Sheikdown: Arrested Royals Offered A Deal – Your Money For Your Freedom

As we noted shortly after the Crown Prince’s purge of potential rivals within Saudi Arabia’s sprawling ruling family, while the dozens of arrests were made under the pretext of an “anti-corruption crackdown”, Mohammed bin Salman’s ulterior motive was something else entirely: Replenishing the Kingdom’s depleted foreign reserves, which have been hammered for the past three years by low oil prices, with some estimating that the current purge could potentially bring in up to $800 billion in proceeds.
Furthermore, the geopolitical turmoil unleashed by the unprecedented crackdown helped push oil prices higher, creating an ancillary benefit for both the kingdom’s rulers and the upcoming IPO of Aramco.

And, in the latest confirmation that the crackdown was all about cash, the Financial Times reports today that the Saudi government has offered the new occupants of the Riyadh Ritz-Carlton a way out…. and it’s going to cost them: In some cases, as much as 70% of their net worth.
Saudi authorities are negotiating settlements with princes and businessmen held over allegations of corruption, offering deals for the detainees to pay for their freedom, people briefed on the discussions say.In some cases the government is seeking to appropriate as much as 70 per cent of suspects’ wealth, two of the people said, in a bid to channel hundreds of billions of dollars into depleted state coffers.The arrangements, which have already seen some assets and funds handed over to the state, provide an insight into the strategy behind Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s dramatic corruption purge.
The crackdown has led to the detention of hundreds of royals, ministers, officals and the country’s richest oligarchs including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the billionaire, Waleed al-Ibrahim, the founder of Middle East Broadcasting Center, which owns Al Arabiya, the Saudi satellite television channel, and Bakr bin Laden, chairman of the Saudi Binladin construction group and brother of Osama bin Laden.
Additionally, as we reported, the crackdown sent members of the country’s wealthy upper crust scrambling to liquidate their holdings and move their cash offshore, where they might have a better chance of keeping it away from the Saudi government.

Some of the suspects, most of whom have been rounded up at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh since last week, are keen to secure their release by signing over cash and corporate assets, the FT’s sources say.
“They are making settlements with most of those in the Ritz,” said one adviser. “Cough up the cash and you will go home.”One multi-billionaire businessman held at the Ritz-Carlton has been told to hand over 70% of his wealth to the state as a punishment for decades of involvement in allegedly corrupt business transactions. He wants to pay, but has yet to work out the details of transferring those assets to the Saudi state.
Settlements for royals will also include pledges of loyalty as MBS prepares himself to take the Saudi throne, though his father, King Salman, has vigorously denied these rumors.

One detainee told his staff that the authorities may be looking to take ownership of his main business. Families of detained suspects have started to hire consultants to assist efforts to secure their relatives’ release and to ring fence the damage to their business interests.

(Click to enlarge)“They are looking for ways to isolate the tainted shareholder and keep the business going,” said the adviser.
The settlements aim to recover billions of dollars allegedly earned through “corruption” at a time when the government is grappling with a recession triggered by prolonged low oil prices and a budget deficit that widened to $79 billion last year.
The country’s attorney-general has said he is investigating allegations of corruption amounting to at least $100 billion – though the total value of assets seized could be as high as $800 billion. Though the Financial Times puts the high-end figure at a relatively modest $300 billion; to make up for the delta, more arrests are still expected.
Regular Saudis, who’ve seen their benefits cut and some of their jobs taken away, support MBS’s decision. “Why should the poor take all the pain of austerity,” said one Saudi academic. “The rich need to pay their way too.”
In Saudi Arabia, they are about to do just that.
