George Sorbane Quotes:
1. “The important papers the Founders left us were the most significant writings in recorded history after the Holy Books, a magic trek for peace and guidance in times of trouble, a forgotten and often ignored dimension of the Nation founding.”― “The Endless Beginning”

2…………> Father & Son Drug Dealing: Dark Net Enterprise
An Irvine man who was part of a father-and-son crew that illegally distributed methamphetamine on one of the world’s largest darknet marketplaces pleaded guilty today to a federal criminal drug charge, 11 days after a federal jury found his father guilty of drug charges.
William Thomas Glarner IV, a.k.a. “Billy,” 34, pleaded guilty to one felony count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. U.S. District Judge David O. Carter has scheduled a September 23 sentencing hearing, where Glarner will face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison and a statutory maximum sentence of life in prison.
Glarner admitted in his plea agreement that he used at least three monikers to obscure his true identity on the darknet, including on the “Tor” darknet browser, where he conducted more than 1,500 sales of controlled substances, including methamphetamine. The term “darknet” refers to computer networks that utilize some of the Internet, but provide greater anonymity, allowing vendors to sell goods and services – such as illegal drug sales – often in exchange for virtual currency.
Glarner obtained drugs from various sources, and along with others, mailed drugs to darknet customers nationwide by using such services as the U.S. Postal Service and commercial couriers, according to the plea agreement.
Carter has scheduled a September 23 sentencing hearing, where Glarner will face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison and a statutory maximum sentence of life in prison.
3…………> Benghazi Murderous Terrorist Mustafa-al-Imam: Indicted By DOJ
Mustafa al-Imam, a Libyan national aged 48 years old, was found guilty of terrorism charges for his participation in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Special Mission and Annex in Benghazi, Libya, where Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. government personnel Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty died in the attack at the Mission and the nearby Annex in Benghazi.
“We will never forget those we lost in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 – Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Ambassador Christopher Stevens,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “And we will not rest in our pursuit of the terrorists who attacked our facilities and killed these four courageous Americans – they must be held accountable for their crimes. I want to thank the agents, analysts, and prosecutors – and all of their partners in the U.S. government – who are responsible for this important investigation.”
Al-Imam was captured in Libya on Oct. 29, 2017. He was found guilty of conspiracy to provide material support and resources to terrorists and maliciously destroying and injuring a dwelling and placing lives in jeopardy by a jury on June 13, 2019. The former charge is punishable by up to a maximum of 15 years in prison, while the latter charge is punishable by up to a maximum of 20 years in prison. The jury failed to reach a verdict on 15 other charged counts, leading the court to declare a mistrial on June 17, 2019. The government has not yet announced whether it plans to retry Al-Imam on the remaining counts. The maximum statutory sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes. The sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the court after considering the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
4…………> Facebook Digital Currency: Ripe For A DOJ Monopoly Lawsuit
Social media giant Facebook has unveiled plans to launch a new digital currency, called Libra, next year, saying people would be able to make payments with the currency via its own apps, as well as on messaging service WhatsApp, with Uber and Visa are also likely to accept it in future, it said.
The concerns about how people’s money and data will be protected, as well as over the potential volatility of the currency, with Facebook said Libra would be independently-managed and backed by real assets, and that paying with it would be as easy as texting.
It is the latest foray by a tech giant into the payments sector, after Google Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay – although none of those services are based on a crypto-currency.
Would you trust a company that has been accused repeatedly of violating human rights of people and arbitrarily closing accounts it does not like, to handle your money? Dig out this one by yourself!
5…………> US Strike Against Iran: Reports Abound
The United States is planning to carry out a “massive” tactical attack on an Iranian target, a Western diplomat at the UN headquarters in New York has told Israel’s Maariv newspaper, as the world have expressed concerns over deployment an additional 1,000 troops to the Middle East following last week’s apparent sabotage attacks against two oil tankers off Iran’s coast.
“The bombing will be massive but will be limited to a specific target,” the anonymous source said, without specifying exactly what type of target this might be, but the Jerusalem Post suggested that the attack may target a facility linked to Iran’s nuclear program.
