2…………> ICE Enforcement Actions On Criminal Aliens Released Due To California Sanctuary Policies
.
WASHINGTON – The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced the conclusion to a week-long targeted enforcement operation that resulted in the apprehension of over 125 at-large aliens across the state of California, where sanctuary policies have largely prohibited the cooperation of law enforcement agencies in the arrest of criminal aliens.
The ICE enforcement actions, which took place Sept. 28 to Oct 2, targeted aliens subject to removal who were arrested for crimes but were released by state or local law enforcement agencies, despite having active immigration detainers in place. Over 95% percent of those aliens arrested, had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges at the time of arrest.

3…………> Chilean Tree Bark: COVID-19 Vaccine Key Ingredient?

.

The Chilean biotech company Desert King is a significant actor in the race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. The firm has developed a procedure that allows for active agents to be extracted from the bark and wood of the quillaja tree, which only grows in Chile. Desert King sells the resulting powder to a British subsidiary of the US vaccine development company Novovax.

Novovax announced in late September that it had initiated its first Phase 3 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of its vaccine in the UK, and that it aimed to enroll 10,000 volunteers between the ages of 18 and 84 to take part.

4………….> Covid: Trump Free Of Symptoms For 24 hours
.
President Donald Trump has had no Covid-19 symptoms for more than 24 hours and has been fever-free for more than four days, his doctor says.
Sean Conley also said the president had not needed any supplemental oxygen since going to hospital on Friday. He was discharged on Monday.
Mr. Trump said he “felt great!” and later returned to the Oval Office for briefings, the White House said.
The news comes ahead of the key vice-presidential TV debate later.
Wednesday’s debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris is one of the most eagerly anticipated in years.
Many observers branded the first presidential TV debate between Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden as “ugly” and “chaotic”. Very little on policy was aired as the debate, on 29 September, descended into interruptions and insults.

5…………> ‘Trump-Russia’ Hoax: Clinton, US Intel Agents Have Much to Explain
.
President Trump authorised a “total declassification” of all documents related to the Russia probe, as well as the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, the move announced after the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, released a hand-written memo from ex-CIA Director John Brennan on an alleged “plot” by Hillary Clinton to tie then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to Russia, as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server” before the 2016 election. The notes were supposedly taken after then-CIA chief briefed President Barack Obama on the matter.

2…………> An Illegal Agent of Chinese Intelligence: Singaporean National In The United States 

.
Jun Wei Yeo, also known as Dickson Yeo, entered a plea of guilty today to one count of acting within the United States as an illegal agent of a foreign power without first notifying the Attorney General, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 951. Yeo’s plea was entered via videoconference before the Honorable Tanya S. Chutkan in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

“The Chinese Government uses an array of duplicity to obtain sensitive information from unsuspecting Americans,” said Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s National Security Division John C. Demers. “Yeo was central to one such scheme, using career networking sites and a false consulting firm to lure Americans who might be of interest to the Chinese government. This is yet another example of the Chinese government’s exploitation of the openness of American society.”

“Today’s guilty plea underscores the ways that the Chinese government continues to target Americans with access to sensitive government information, including using the Internet and non-Chinese nationals to target Americans who never leave the United States,” said Michael R. Sherwin, Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. “We will continue to prosecute those who use deceptive practices on the Internet and elsewhere to undermine our national security.”

“At the direction of Chinese intelligence operatives, the defendant targeted U.S. government employees and an Army officer to obtain information for the government of China. Mr. Yeo admits he set up a fake consulting company to further his scheme, looked for susceptible individuals who were vulnerable to recruitment, and tried to avoid detection by U.S. authorities,” said Alan E. Kohler Jr., Assistant Director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. “But this isn’t just about this particular defendant. This case is yet another reminder that China is relentless in its pursuit of U.S. technology and policy information in order to advance its own interests. The FBI and our partners will be just as aggressive in uncovering these hidden efforts and charging individuals who break our laws.”

3…………> Is the 2nd Wave Here Already: EU Leader Says 

.

The second wave of COVID-19 infections has already hit the Islamic Merkeldom of Germany, according to the state premier of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer:

“The second wave of coronavirus is already here. It is happening every day,” the center-right leader of the eastern German state said.

“We have new outbreaks of infection every day, which could turn into very high numbers”, pointing out that the pandemic had brought the people of Germany together.

Meanwhile for the fourth day in a row, the US has reported over 1,000 deaths from COVID-19, total of 145,352 deaths since the outbreak began, and total infections in the US rose by at least 68,800 to over 4 million.

5…………> Three Federal Agents Could Be ‘Permanently Blinded’ By Laser Attacks From Portland Protestors

.

Demonstrations outside the courthouse in Portland have grown increasingly violent as the Trump administration sent in federal officers to crack down on the continuous nightly protests in the city.

Three federal agents who were deployed to Portland, Oregon amid ongoing protests were “left permanently blinded” by the rioters using lasers “pointed directly into their eyes” in clashes they were involved in, another’s hand was impaled by planted nails, and yet another federal agent was shot with a pellet gun, leaving a wound deep to the bone, with the Trump administration’s press secretary saying the government “will not stand by and allow anarchy in our streets”.

The agents were injured during a confrontation as a 1,000 person crowd of protesters came up to a federal courthouse, when ‘peaceful’ Antifa/BLM punks also threw fireworks at the federal courthouse, and there were threats to cut the building’s water supply, according to the White House.

2…………> From Russia With Love: COVID-19 Medicine?

.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, with over 1,270,000 confirmed cases across the world and at least 69,450 fatalities from the disease, as the countries involved in the war with the  corona-virus are introducing further measures to curb the spread and urging people to stay at home to be safe and also ease the pressure on healthcare systems amid the crisis.

The United States remains the country hardest hit by the pandemic with almost one-fourth of the world’s infected (at least 337,000), while Italy and Spain remain the main center of the outbreak in Europe with the highest numbers of deaths (15,887 and 12,641 respectively).

The Islamic Merkeldom of Germany, is approaching 100,000 confirmed cases, as Russia’s Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) said that is has developed a treatment for COVID-19 based on the drug Dalargin, and clinical trials of the treatment are getting underway, the agency’s press service stated on Monday.

The Federal Medical-Biological Agency has developed a treatment for severe forms of pneumonia that lead to respiratory failure caused by a corona-virus, based on … the synthetic hexapeptide Dalargin, that is already accredited in Russia as a treatment for trophic ulcers and protecting vital organs such as the lungs and liver, the new treatment already been tested on animals, with success rates between 70 and 100 percent, a promising result after weeks of grim, and deadly news from across the world.

3…………> COVID-19 Attack On Global Leadership: PM Boris Johnson In Intensive Care As Symptoms ‘Worsen’

.

Prime Minister Mr. Boris Johnson has been moved to intensive care in hospital after his corona-virus symptoms “worsened”, 10 Downing Street has said, moved on the advice of his medical team and is receiving “excellent care”, has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to deputize “where necessary”.

The prime minister, 55, was admitted to hospital in London with “persistent symptoms” on Sunday evening:

“The prime minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of corona-virus. Over the course of [Monday] afternoon, the condition of the prime minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the intensive care unit at the hospital. The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication.”

Chancellor Rishi Sunak said his thoughts were with the prime minister and his pregnant partner, Carrie Symonds, and that Mr Johnson would “come out of this even stronger”.(BBC)

4…………>  Russian White Supremacists Are Terrorists: President Trump

.

US President Donald Trump has labelled a Russian nationalist group as a terrorist organization, in the first time the US government has applied the label to a white supremacist group:

“These actions are unprecedented,” said Nathan Sales, assistant secretary of State for counter-terrorism about “The Russian Imperialist Movement”, believed to have offered military training to neo-Nazi fighters, aided election interference in the US, and also clearly negating “the racist accusations” on Mr. Trump, who  has previously been criticized for failure to do more about the threat of white supremacy.

The terror designation gives the US government authority to block Americans from providing material support or engage in financial dealings with such groups, authorizing the Treasury Department can block any American assets belonging to a named terrorist group, and its members can be prevented from entering the US.

5………..> CLOVID-19 Secret Agents: Our Cats? Is Your Feline Socially Distanced?

.

Researchers at the Harbin Veterinary Research Institute in China have found that the novel corona-virus, also known as COVID-19, can be transmitted between cats. Domesticated house cats are also able to pass the virus on to members of their species, but not very easily, said Hualan Chen, a lead researcher of the paper which was published in the “bioRxiv” scientific journal on March 31. The study has found that ferrets and cats can be infected with COVID-19, and can also pass the virus on to members of their species — under laboratory conditions. There is less risk with other domesticated animals.

A gunman identified as Robert Bowers yelling “all Jews must die” stormed into a Pittsburgh synagogue during Saturday Sabbath services and shot worshipers, killing at least 11 people and injuring six more.

The attack took place during a baby naming ceremony, and the suspect exchanged gunfire with police and was shot several times.

President Trump says “some protection inside the temple” may have reduced casualties as suspect reported to be a white male” was taken into custody after the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood in the US state of Pennsylvania.

Mr. Bowers, aged in his 40s, is in hospital in a fair condition and the FBI said during a press conference that the shooter used an assault rifle and three handguns in the attack, but there was no indication he was known to law enforcement before the shooting.

3…………> Putin’s GRU: Under A Microscope

 

.

Incensed by the boldness and the brutality of Russian military Intelligence operatives, the British, American and Dutch intelligence agencies all expressed their anger with the GRU, accusing it of being behind five cyber attacks since 2015; the US issued search notices against seven of its agents, and the Netherlands published details of the agency’s attempts to spy on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in the Hague.

The Russian spy agency is alleged of perpetrating the attempted assassination of former double agent Sergei Skripal, as well as allegedly orchestrating the hacking of Democrat internet servers during the 2016 presidential race.

In addition, GRU agents were said to be involved in a coup attempt in Montenegro in October 2016 and allegedly hacked the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2018. Finally, the Spetsnaz special ops forces under its control were the first to enter Crimea during the 2014 takeover.

“The Kremlin sincerely believes that Western secret services fomented the 2014 Ukrainian revolution, so Putin felt that he was in an unofficial war of sorts with the West and that he needed to act accordingly,” according to Western analysts.

1…………> Chinese “Five Fingers”: A CIA Mole 

A federal jury convicted Kevin Patrick Mallory, 61, a former Central Intelligence Agency case officer of Leesburg, Virginia, on espionage charges related to his transmission of classified documents to an agent of the People’s Republic of China. 

“It is a sad day when an American citizen is convicted of spying on behalf of a foreign power,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “This act of espionage was no isolated incident. The People’s Republic of China has made a sophisticated and concerted effort to steal our nation’s secrets. Today’s conviction demonstrates that we remain vigilant against this threat and hold accountable all those who put the United States at risk through espionage.” 

According to court records and evidence presented at trial, in March and April 2017, Mallory traveled to Shanghai and met with an individual, Michael Yang, whom he quickly concluded was working for the People’s Republic of China Intelligence Service (PRCIS). During a voluntary interview with FBI agents on May 24, 2007, Mallory stated that Yang represented himself as working for a People’s Republic of China think tank, however, Mallory stated that he assessed Yang to be a Chinese Intelligence Officer. 

Mallory, a U.S. citizen who speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese, told FBI agents he traveled to Shanghai in March and April to meet with Yang and Yang’s boss. After Mallory consented to a review of a covert communications (covcom) device he had been given by Yang in order to communicate covertly with Yang, FBI agents viewed a message from Mallory to Yang in which Mallory stated that he could come in the middle of June and he could bring the remainder of the documents with him at that time. Analysis of the device, which was a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, also revealed a handwritten index describing eight different documents later determined to be classified. Four of the eight documents listed in the index were found stored on the device, with three being confirmed as containing classified information pertaining to the same U.S. government agency. One of those documents was classified TOP SECRET, while the remaining two documents were classified SECRET. FBI analysts were able to determine that Mallory had completed all of the steps necessary to securely transmit at least four documents via the covcom device, one of which contained unique identifiers for human sources who had helped the U.S. government. 

Mallory was convicted of conspiracy to deliver, attempted delivery, delivery of defense information to aid a foreign government and making material false statements. He faces a maximum penalty of life in prison when sentenced on Sept. 21. The statutory maximum penalty is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the judge.

2…………> “Barbed Wire Renaissance”: Turkey 

Obviously enlightened by Israel and President Trump’s much heralded “Mexico will pay for it, and gladly” wall along the Mexico border, all designed to keep “unwanted” friends and relatives out, Turkey has completed the construction of a 475-mile concrete wall along its border with Syria. 

A part of Turkey’s effort to increase security and combat smuggling and illegal crossings on a 566-mi border with civil war embroiled Syria, the wall will seal provinces of Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis, Hatay, Mardin, and Sirnak from hostiles intrusions. 

The border wall project incorporates physical, electronic and advanced technology layers, includes modular concrete walls, patrol routes, manned and unmanned towers and passenger tracks.

3…………> “Markets Up”: To Duterte Prison 

Eight Israeli fraudsters and nearly 500 Philippines call centers agents are now locked in the prisons of President Duterte, accused of promulgating a multimillion-dollar online investment scam, the Philippine National Police said. 

Following complaints from Australian and South African investors who had been victimized out of millions of dollars, the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG) and the Special Action Force raided three buildings in the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga province being used as the company’s offices. 

ACG director Chief Superintendent Marni Marcos Jr. said the company was allegedly involved in a fictitious stock trading business which held a portfolio of stocks that kept rising. 

“They showed their victims that they will invest in this because you saw it — the graph is going up, and you are going to earn money,” Marcos said at a press conference Thursday as quoted by Rappler, a Philippine-based online news portal.

4…………> Comrade UN’s Jet: IL62M 

Following a family tradition, Mr. Kim is known to use a special armored train for travel, but that’s not an option for getting to a state like Singapore, hence an Ilyushin-62M with a range of about 6000 miles puts the island safely within non-stop flying distance.  But there have been questions about the mechanical reliability and absence of advanced communications systems typical of modern planes, and Mr. Kim’s cargo plane, carrying heavy things like his limousine, can’t fly as far with a full load and might need to stop for refueling along the way.

5…………> The Crabs Of Wrath: Hooper Islands

Maryland’s remote Hooper Islands are beautiful and conservative, quiet and industrious, hence the mostly older population voted heavily for Donald Trump with his promise of a border wall, but now that immigration rhetoric risks their most important crab meat industry that for decades relied on Mexican “slave” workers employed under H2-B visas to do the labour-intensive work of picking tasty white flesh from the shells. 


“We’ve been getting these workers for 25 years and we depend on them,” says 81-year-old Dot Ruark who runs one of the picking factories that rely on Mexican workers. 
“And I don’t think we should have to go through what we have to go through every year.” Ms. Ruark’s picking factory is bustling with mostly female Mexican workers who laugh in Spanish as they finish a shift and collect their pay cheques. She is one of the lucky few to get visas for her workers this year. But she is watching friends have their workshops shut down as the President’s immigration crackdown bites with unintended consequences. “I mean it’s just hard, it’s hard to think that they’re sitting there and you don’t like that because we all work together down here and it’s just devastating you know,” Ms. Ruark said of her fellow factory owners.
