>A nerve agent was used to try to murder a former Russian spy and his daughter, police have said.

>Sergei and Yulia Skripal were found unconscious in Salisbury on Sunday afternoon and remain critically ill.

>A police officer who was the first to attend the scene is now in a serious condition in hospital, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said.

>Mr Rowley, head of Counter Terrorism Policing, said government scientists had identified the agent used, but would not make that information public at this stage.

>"This is being treated as a major incident involving attempted murder, by administration of a nerve agent," he said.

>"Having established that a nerve agent is the cause of the symptoms... I can also confirm that we believe that the two people who became unwell were targeted specifically."

>Czech president Miloš Zeman has said the country produced the novichok nerve agent for testing but it was then destroyed.

http://praguemonitor.com/2018/04/27/czech-intelligence-works-out-report-novichok-zeman

>The Czech counter-intelligence service BIS has worked out a report that President Milos Zeman ordered on whether the Novichok nerve agent was developed or stored in the country, BIS spokesman Ladislav Sticha told CTK on Thursday.

Apparently, every other country knows what this "top secret Russian" nerve agent is, how to produce it and store, which isn't surprize by any measure since know-how for it has been openly cited by many sources. What is interesting, though, is that, supposedly, OPCW members are not to produce or store any chemical weapons.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_Weapons_Convention

Actually, it looks like a post-modern type loyalty-securing strategy. If you are siding with Britain or any other major Western power, you are obliged, apparently, to believe everything they say and do everything they want, even if it is nonsensical, suicidal or physically impossible. We're not running short on bullshit anyway, there's always something, any day of the week.

>In a joint report, German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, the weekly Die Zeit and broadcasters NDR and WDR said Germany’s BND spy agency had secured the sample of the Novichok nerve agent from a Russian scientist.

>The sample was analyzed in Sweden and the chemical formula was given to the German government and military, the report cited sources as saying. Western countries used the information to help develop countermeasures.

On the long list of countries who stole Russian chemical warfare secrets in the past, there's at least two new names now. That, of course, adds to the early claims that there's only one country capable of producing it. As history demonstrates, this is a normal situation for any imperialistic western country - if you give them a chance of reconciliation, they will plunder your technologies and resources, and use them against you.

But wait, what's this? We found the PROOFS! Russia does produce Novichok!

Well, this is pretty funny statistic considering that nobody ever saw the people who did this and the cameras are placed all over the town.

>Timeline of events (all times approximate)

Well, they can at least say they know the events with a precision of 1 meter, 1 second and 1 person. You can just go on Google Street View and observe how thoroughly the city is recorded for everybody's convenience.

Well, camera spotting is one of my secondary habits when I stop by somewhere. Look to the pole on the left, there's CCTV sign. Then look across the bridge. Then go through the tunnel in the building and look at the ceiling. Then watch to the left at the exit. These cameras seem to be brand new - if you compare the shots from June 2017 and September, they are replaced from old box-like versions.

>The Netherlands told Moscow on Friday it will hold the Russian state legally responsible for the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July 2014, after investigators concluded that a Russian army missile system was used in the attack.

>MH17 was shot down over territory held by pro-Russian separatist forces in eastern Ukraine as it flew from Amsterdam en route to Kuala Lumpur, killing all 298 people onboard, roughly two-thirds of them Dutch.

>A team of international investigators said on Thursday that the “Buk” missile system used to bring down the passenger plane came from the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Brigade, based in the western Russian city of Kursk.

>“It is the first time the finger points to one specific country,” Prime Minister Mark Rutte told reporters after an emergency cabinet meeting. “We are holding Russia responsible for their role in the deployment of the Buk rocket system.”

>The diplomatic escalation comes at a time when relations between Western powers and Russia have reached their lowest point in decades.

>“Russia didn’t cooperate with the international legal requests in relation to the investigation,” Rutte said, referring to the probe carried out by prosecutors from Australia, Malaysia, Belgium, Ukraine and the Netherlands.

>The Netherlands and Australia informed Moscow that it expects Russia to now provide full assistance to the investigation, which is in the final stage of identifying perpetrators to be tried under Dutch law.

Here's the funny thing about "investigation" - people are concentrated on the things that are present on the footage. On the other hand, they probably should have focused in the other things that aren't present - namely, the rest of the "convoy" aside from the truck itself. Or maybe about fully operational Ukrainian AA defence system deployed in the region.

>Independent Polish journalist Stanislaw Remuszko said that freedom of speech is the backbone of democracy and the most important thing in life.

>”I have been working as a journalist for more than 40 years now and I believe that expressing one’s mind, even if it differs from that of the powers-that-be, is our sacred right. Saying only what the government wants to hear has nothing to do with free speech. If they arrested Kirill Vyshinsky only because he said things Ukrianian authorities don’t like, then he had every right to do so and is not to be punished, let alone arrested, for doing that,” Remuszko said.

The funny part though, you won't find any publications in the West about this treacherous breach of human rights. Because freedom of press is a concept of fiction.

>The decree, which Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed on May 14, prolongs measures taken last year against Russian media companies-- including Rossiya Segodnya (Russia Today), Sputnik, VGTRK, NTV, REN TV, TNT, OTR and others - that restricted or suspended their access to Ukrainian telecommunications networks. The decree also barred the outlets' journalists from entering Ukraine for the next three years and froze any assets that they had in the country.

If the freedom of speech, freedom of press and other freedoms can be throttled as it fits to interests of ruling class, they are not freedoms at all.

>Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the suspected gunman who opened fire at a Texas high school on Friday morning, apparently posted photos of neo-Nazi iconography online, according to social media accounts flagged by classmates and reviewed by The Daily Beast.

>Pagourtzis, 17, was booked into Galveston County Jail for capital murder on Friday. He allegedly killed 10 people at Santa Fe High School, where he was a student. Explosive devices were left inside the school near Houston, authorities said. Pagourtzis reportedly had an assault-style rifle, shotgun, and pistol.

>Texas Gov. Greg Abbott told reporters that Pagourtzis said in journals he wanted to kill himself after the shooting. Instead, he surrendered to police.

>Before his arrest was announced, two Santa Fe students also told The Daily Beast that Pagourtzis was the gunman and they confirmed a Facebook account with Pagourtzis’ name belonged to him. Attempts by The Daily Beast to reach Pagourtzis’ family were unsuccessful.

>On April 30, Pagourtzis apparently posted a t-shirt with “born to kill” printed on the front, boasting that it was custom-made.

>That same day, Pagourtzis posted multiple pictures of a duster jacket emblazoned with a variety of symbols including the Iron Cross, a German military award last given by the Nazis, and a hammer and sickle. He said he equated the Iron Cross with “bravery,” and the hammer and sickle with “rebellion.”

>Several visual novel publishers and developers are reporting that due to a sudden change in Steam's content guidelines and policies, their games are under threat of being removed from Valve's platform. Several visual novel makers have made public that Valve threatened to remove their games if they aren't altered to fit content guidelines by the end of the month.

>Early this morning, MangaGamer published a blog post regarding its visual novel Kindred Spirits. The company writes, "Kindred Spirits, has also been targeted by Steam's sudden and abrupt content policy shift and has been threatened with removal if the content of the game is not modified."

>Kindred Spirits on the Roof first made headlines as Steam's first "uncensored" visual novel. However, reviewers seemed to respond positively to the game's frank depiction of sexuality, with Kotaku even calling the game "pretty tame."

>MangaGamer made it clear in their blogpost that the company "went to great pains to run the game's content by Valve representatives." This meant mangagamer sent "along every potentially questionable graphical asset along with advanced builds of the title-to ensure that the feeling was mutual."

>John Pickett of MangaGamer told Motherboard that Kindred Spirits underwent a "vigorous" review by Valve's representatives, and "Valve spent several weeks reviewing the game to check the content and game MangaGamer its full approval and guarantee that it fell within Valve's content standards."

>Paddock also ranted about "camps" the Federal Emergency Management Agency set up after Hurricane Katrina, which he claimed were a "dry run for law enforcement and military to start kickin' down doors and … confiscating guns."

>In a handwritten account, a woman said she overheard a man she believes to be Paddock talking with another man at a Las Vegas restaurant just three days before the massacre. She told police that Paddock seemed angry about the 1990s standoffs at Waco, Texas, and Ruby Ridge in Idaho.

>"At the time, I just thought 'strange guys' and I wanted to leave," said the woman.

ZTE, which reached an agreement with the government on the charges, was further accused of lying to investigators and obstructing a probe into their actions.

>Last month, Commerce Department decided to trigger the harshest penalty in the agreement, which was initially suspended in 2017. Because ZTE made additional false statements during the probation period, the department banned American companies from buying or selling the phone maker's products for the next seven years.

http://www.11alive.com/article/news/local/13investigates-will-lauren-giddings-killer-get-a-new-trial/93-530201238

Four years after he admitted to the murder of his neighbor and Mercer Law classmate Lauren Giddings, Stephen McDaniel will soon get another day in court to explain why he believes he deserves a new trial.

McDaniel filed a Habeas Corpus petition in February stating his constitutional rights were violated during the pre-trial proceedings.

In part, he claims the previous Bibb District Attorney gained access to legal documents McDaniel requested from jail and prosecutors used that information against him in court.

McDaniel also questions the competence of his attorneys for not pursuing this and other issues in court.

"Part of the strength and benefit of a guilty plea is that assurance that it is very unlikely to be undone," said Bibb District Attorney David Cooke.

He says it is extremely unlikely that a judge would grant McDaniel's request given the circumstances surrounding the case.

>According to Mike Minerva, a Tallahassee public defender and member of the defense team, a pre-trial plea bargain was negotiated in which Bundy would plead guilty to killing Levy, Bowman and Leach in exchange for a firm 75-year prison sentence. Prosecutors were amenable to a deal, by one account, because "prospects of losing at trial were very good." Bundy, on the other hand, saw the plea deal not only as a means of avoiding the death penalty, but also as a "tactical move": he could enter his plea, then wait a few years for evidence to disintegrate or become lost and for witnesses to die, move on, or retract their testimony. Once the case against him had deteriorated beyond repair, he could file a post-conviction motion to set aside the plea and secure an acquittal.

Confessed killer in Lauren Giddings dismemberment murder sues lawyer for malpractice
The contentious-yet-tenuous legal wranglings of Stephen McDaniel continue to confound and hassle some of the very people who helped keep him off death row.

A month after graduating from law school in 2011, McDaniel broke into the apartment of Lauren Giddings, his next-door neighbor and Mercer University law school classmate, then strangled her and cut up her body.

In 2014, McDaniel, now 32, pleaded guilty and described in open court his version of how Giddings was slain. Earlier this year, though, in a last-ditch form of appeal that he filed from prison, McDaniel claimed that the police and prosecutors — and his own lawyers — may have wronged him.

Then last Wednesday, on what would have been Giddings’ 34th birthday, McDaniel, in a handwritten civil filing claiming legal malpractice, sued one of his former defense attorneys for upward of $200,000. McDaniel’s lawsuit contends that Macon lawyer Floyd Buford mishandled a wrongful-death lawsuit that Giddings’ parents filed against McDaniel after the killing.

McDaniel, serving a life sentence with the possibility of parole, now claims that Buford settled the wrongful-death claim against McDaniel’s wishes. Under the settlement, McDaniel, should he ever earn any money, would owe the Giddings family up to $80 million.

But McDaniel contends there was an offer to settle, one that Buford ignored, that would have imposed no financial sanctions and required only that McDaniel never earn any money from a book about the murder, if he chose to write one.

$8.63bn wasted on Russian "stealth fighter" fraud scheme
http://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/8-63-billion-advanced-fighter-aircraft-project-with-russia-put-on-ice-118042000029_1.html

>The proposal for India and Russia to jointly develop an advanced fighter — the eponymous Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) — has been formally buried. Business Standard has learnt that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval conveyed the decision to a Russian ministerial delegation at a “Defence Acquisition Meeting” in end-February.

>Doval and Defence Secretary Sanjay Mitra, who attended the meeting, asked the Russians to proceed alone with developing their fifth-generation fighter. They said India might possibly join the project later, or buy the fully developed fighter outright, after it entered service with the Russian Air Force.

>New Delhi and Moscow have discussed the FGFA since 2007, when they agreed that Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) would partner Russia’s Sukhoi Design Bureau (Sukhoi) in developing and manufacturing the fighter. In 2010, Sukhoi flew the fighter, called Perspektivny Aviatsionny Kompleks Frontovoy Aviatsii, or “Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation” (PAK-FA). Seven prototypes are currently in flight-testing.

>Russia said the PAK-FA met its needs, but the India Air Force (IAF) wanted a better fighter. So HAL and Sukhoi negotiated an $8.63-billion deal to improve the PAK-FA with the IAF’s requirements of stealth (near-invisibility to radar), super-cruise (supersonic cruising speed), networking (real-time digital links with other battlefield systems) and airborne radar with world-beating range. In all, the IAF demanded some 50 improvements to the PAK-FA, including 360-degree radar and more powerful engines.

>Defence ministry sources who played a direct role in negotiations with Russia say much of this money was earmarked for Indian production facilities for manufacturing 127 FGFAs, and for India’s work share in developing advanced avionics for the fighter. It also included the cost of four PAK-FA prototypes for IAF test pilots to fly.

>Now, the IAF has backed away from the FGFA because it argues the PAK-FA — which Sukhoi has been test-flying since January 2010 — is not stealthy enough for a fifth-generation combat aircraft.

Have you spoken to every each single American?

Having a story is nice but it's important to reality-check.

The US is a police state now. Americans should be out in the streets with pitchforks and torches, but instead they would rather shut up, cover their ears, and put their heads in the sand.

Weird.

>President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

>The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

>The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

>“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

TRUMP: I will be strongly pushing Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue - I hope

>The most difficult thing for you is to see the borderline of the situation. You may not notice the moment when the time of wavering and procrastination ends and begins the time of resolute actions. Look out for this transition and do not miss it.

H. R. Mcmaster out as National Security Advisor, set to be replaced by John Bolton.

>Career politician
>Warhawk with obvious hegemonistic tendencies
>Served as undersecretary of state for arms control and international security affairs under Bush and Powell leading up to the invasion of Iraq and beyond
>Strongly pro-Israel and anti-Palestine
>Supports pre-emptive war against Iran and North Korea

After reading the wikipedia article on him and Mehdi Hassan's article on him I have come to the conclusion that this guy is nuts, or a legit psychopath, or at very least has some serious mental problems.

I'm not really a fan of Mehdi Hassan but he hit the nail on the head here.

>Now, therefore, is the time to panic; now is the moment to sound the alarm. The bullies have come together. The “ideological” and “brutal” Bolton is about to be given a desk a few feet away from the Oval Office. As national security adviser, he’ll be the first one in the room and the last one out. “Trump is utterly ignorant of the world, prone to making impulsive decisions, and tends to defer to the most forceful voice in the room, especially when it conveys information with confident bluster,” observed Damon Linker in the The Week. “That would give Bolton enormous power to shape policy — which means the power to get the United States to launch big new wars as well as expand the numerous ones we’re already waging across wide swaths of the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia.”

>It should be a fire-bell-in-the-night warning about the value Moscow places on honesty, whether regarding election interference, nuclear proliferation, arms control or the Middle East: negotiate with today's Russia at your peril,

>Attempting to undermine America’s constitution is far more than just a quotidian covert operation. It is in fact a casus belli, a true act of war, and one Washington will never tolerate

>The notion that the Russians can help us with terrorism I think is delusional

>The Trump administration has not done enough to respond to Russia’s attack on the United States and our democratic institutions, Bolton said, and Putin must pay a heavy price for his actions.

>“I think that this is actually now a perfect time for President Trump to pivot to make it clear that he’s not going to permit additional [Russian] meddling, or meddling by any other foreign government in our election process,” Bolton said. “Whether you think [the Russians] were trying to collude with the Trump campaign or trying to collude with the Clinton campaign, their interference is unacceptable. It’s really an attack on the American Constitution.”

I believe Trump is incompetent. I believe his inner circle is corrupt. I believe Twain's opinion is uninformed. But to force the lady to apologize for saying she would have voted for a popular party candidate is fucking ridiculous.

>President Donald Trump twice gave James Comey an alibi for why a salacious report about the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow couldn’t be true: He never even spent the night in Russia during that trip, Trump told the former FBI director, according to Comey’s memos about the conversations.

>Yet the broad timeline of Trump’s stay, stretching from Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, through the following Sunday morning, has been widely reported. And it’s substantiated by social media posts that show he slept in Moscow the night before the Miss Universe contest.

>Now, flight records obtained by Bloomberg provide fresh details. Combined with existing accounts and Trump’s own social-media posts, they capture two days that, nearly five years later, loom large in the controversy engulfing the White House and at the heart of the Comey memos, which the Justice Department turned over last week to Congress.
