1…………> The Snake Within: US Spy

 

Thursday, August 23, 2018

Federal Government contractor charged for removing and transmitting classified materials to a News Outlet Reality Winner, 26, of Augusta, Georgia, was sentenced today to five years and three months in prison for removing classified national defense material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet.

Winner was arrested by the FBI at her home in Augusta, on June 3, 2017. The parties filed a plea agreement on June 21, in which Winner agreed to plead guilty to the one-count indictment charging her with unlawful retention and transmission of national defense information. The parties agreed that a sentence of imprisonment for 63 months followed by a three-year term of supervised release is the appropriate disposition of the case. The Court accepted the plea agreement at sentencing.

“The defendant schemed to take and disclose classified information she had sworn to protect – and then did so almost as soon as she had the chance,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers.

“Today, she has been held accountable for her crime thanks to the hard work of the Department’s prosecutors and agents. I hope their success will deter others from the similar unlawful action in the future.”

Winner was a contractor assigned to a U.S. government agency facility in Georgia. She had been employed at the facility since on or about Feb. 13, 2017, and held a TOP SECRET//Sensitive Compartmented (SCI) clearance during that time. Before that position, Winner had served in the U.S. Air Force from 2010-2016 and held a TOP SECRET//SCI security clearance. Evidence presented at the change of plea hearing established that on or about May 9, 2017, Winner printed an intelligence report that was classified at the TOP SECRET//SCI level, and she removed it from the facility where she worked. Information may be classified as TOP SECRET if its unauthorized disclosure can reasonably be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security of the United States.

3…………> Impeach Me, Get Poor: Trump

 

U.S. President Donald Trump warned that any effort to impeach him would have dire economic consequences.

“If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be inferior,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News.

“I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who’s done a great job.” Trump was responding to speculation that Democrats would seek to impeach the president should they re-take the House of Representatives in November’s midterm elections.

The effort gained renewed energy after Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen told a district court judge in New York that he made hush money payments to an adult film actress and a former Playboy model “at the direction” of Trump with the intent to “influence the election.”

Cohen did not name the two women, nor did he directly name Trump, but said he was working “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office.” The timeline, however, matches up with Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal who allege affairs with Trump.

 4…………> A Voice From Beyond: Al Baghdadi

 

 Islamic State claims to have released an audio message of leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the first purported speech in nearly a year from a man that intelligence communities are unsure is still alive.

The IS leader called on Middle East citizens to overthrow leaders Baghdadi’s last message was in September last year, and his whereabouts are unknown, despite multiple reports of his death.

The 55-minute audio statement entitled “Give Glad Tidings to the Patient” was released by the extremist group’s central media arm, al-Furqan Foundation, congratulating militants for recent attacks claimed by IS in Canada and Europe. The recording also offered greetings to Muslims for Eid al-Adha, a feast which is celebrated this week. The audio message was posted with a description claiming that the voice belonged to Baghdadi, who declared himself ruler of all Muslims in 2014 after capturing Iraq’s central northern city Mosul.

5…………> Mueller, Get Lost: Trump Supporters

 

The fact that two former Trump advisers are facing prison time may have provoked a media firestorm in the nation’s capital, but to the president’s core supporters it’s just a distraction from the excellent work he’s doing.

“This is the sort of stuff that should be in People magazine,” says James Montfort III, when I call him to ask what he makes of the legal turmoil surrounding Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.

“It’s more important to get North Korea to give up their nuclear arms; it’s more important to make sure Mexico is playing fair on trade – than it is to worry about whether Donald Trump had consensual sex with someone years ago.”

Whether or not President Trump directed Mr. Cohen, his former personal lawyer, to pay porn star Stormy Daniels “hush money” is irrelevant to James from Virginia. He is far more interested in talking up what he says are the president’s considerable achievements in office.

“This is not going to change my loyalty or dedication to him,” he says, arguing that the national conversation should instead focus on issues such as low unemployment and a healthy economy.

1…………> Voice Of China: Pacific 


In a clear sign of the ever-rising power of China as a world leader, one of its radio stations has taken over some of the shortwave radio frequencies once used by the Australian Broadcasting Company in the Pacific region, following the broadcaster’s decision to end shortwave services.

The ABC chose to end shortwave radio broadcasts in early 2017 and state-owned broadcaster China Radio International now uses Radio Australia’s old frequencies while its overseas broadcasting in the Asia Pacific is being reviewed

Claire Moore, Labor’s spokeswoman for international development and the Pacific, said she was not surprised Chinese services snapped up Australia’s old frequencies.

“People in the Pacific were telling us that shortwave was a tried and true mechanism in their parts of the world, they relied on it and they knew about it.
It was always an issue to see if shortwave was available if it was being used and we weren’t using it, that other players would come into space,” she said.

For the young ones that do not remember the cataclysmic events of the last 60 years, shortwave radio was the only way the people behind the “Iron Curtain” can hear the outside world, and in fact any erected dictatorial barrier of suppressing the real news by a never-ending row of tyrants, who have been now replaced by baby-faced New Wolrd Disorder billionaires who control the Internet, and we are about to find the hard way when the dialectics strikes back at our stupidity in case of trouble.

2…………>DHS Secretary Attacked: Hecklers

One of the protesters who heckled the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during a dinner at a Mexican restaurant in DC has been identified as Allison Hrabar, a DoJ paralegal specialist who caught the ire of conservatives and the US Department of Justice (DoJ) that is  reviewing her conduct when more than a dozen protesters with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) entered the restaurant Tuesday evening, with one giving a small speech asking, “Secretary Nielsen how dare you to spend your evening here eating dinner when you’re complicit in the separation and deportation of over ten thousand children separated from their parents?” 

 

The protesters were seeking to make a statement against the since-reformed “zero tolerance” policy, which exacerbated the separation of undocumented children from their parents when they were arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an agency under DHS, and therefore Nielsen.

“If kids don’t eat in peace, you don’t eat in peace,” protesters chanted.

3…………>Human Wave From Africa: Sea Migrants

Libyan navy on Thursday rescued 379 illegal immigrants in two separate operations off the western coastal town of Garrabulli, a navy spokesman said.

Libya’s coast guards rescued 237 migrants of 11 African nationalities on two rubber boats 20 miles (32 km) and 36 miles off Garrabulli, some 55 km east of the capital Tripoli, Libyan navy spokesman Ayoub Qassem told Xinhua.

Qassem said the second operation took place 25 miles (40 km) off Garrabulli, and rescued 142 immigrants.

“The boat carrying the migrants was broken, and bodies of three migrants were recovered from the site,” the navy spokesman said, confirming that all the 379 rescued immigrants have been taken to Tripoli’s naval base and handed over to reception centers. 

 

 

 

4…………> “Angel Families” In The White House: Trump

 

“These are the American citizens permanently separated from their loved ones. I cannot imagine it being any worse, but we promise to act with strength and resolve. We’ll not rest until our border is secure, our citizens are safe and we end this immigration crisis once and for all,” President Trump said on before introducing family members of victims killed by illegal immigrants amid outrage over the separation of migrant families.

Laura Wilkerson, whose son was killed in 2010 by an undocumented immigrant, told audience members: “None of our kids had a minute to say goodbye. We weren’t lucky enough to be separated for five days or 10 days. 

“We were separated permanently.” 

“Your loved ones have not died in vain,” he told the group of so-called Angel Families at the White House.

5…………> Market Report 06/22/2018, cover shortstop 24650, CG(10922), 11/22/17 

Closed position short 24400, cover shortstop 24500, for a loss of 50 DIA points.

Previous position long 24500, stop 25100 for a gain of 600 points. New position short 25050, cover short stop at 24650 for a gain of 400 points.

Stocks were up 119 to 24581, breaking the important support level of 24800, next support at 18900, DJ futures +109, attempt to stage a covering short rally may be underway.

Gold up to 1271.1 and USD/CHF at 1.00 despite President Trump setting tariffs on Chinese products. Translation? As the dollar goes down, we have to wait and see if the new Fed Chair Jerome Powell will continue pressuring gold and the Eurasian block with it down below $1000/oz in an economic WW3. Watch cover short at 24,650.

We have to wait and see if new Fed chair Powell will attempt to destroy Eurasian block by sending gold prices below 1000, despite the fact both Russia and China have been buying their whole gold production in local gold backed currency instead of money printing machines. In other words, US has lost controls of the precious metals complex, and with Trump’s infrastructure and tax cut campaign the National debt will soon be at, or over 30 trillion dollars, since D.C. swamp alligators have no intention dropping their pet projects. Read “Ziban Must Die” for more details on the coming collision of Trump’s administration with “Deep State” operators funded by the billionaires’ supporters of the New World.
