>On Monday, the United States Secret Service told NewsChannel 4 that a special financial and cyber crimes task force is assisting Moore police in its investigation.

>The group, called the Economic and Identity Theft Task Force, is made up of several different local, state and federal agencies, including Moore police and the FBI.

>Authorities say a detective assigned to the task force is using the forensic resources of the Secret Service to investigate evidence collected as a part of the investigation into Sen. Shortey.

>On Wednesday, the Moore Police Department released a redacted report containing details of an incident at a motel between Sen. Ralph Shortey and a 17-year-old.

>When police went to check on a juvenile at the Super 8 in Moore earlier this month, officers said they smelled a “strong odor of raw marijuana” coming from Room 120.

>imagine the massive offended outcry from the super patriots of republican party if hillary clinton's campaign had been caught attempting to hide a payment of this magnitude from the filthy commies. when its their guy, even treason is permissible. such patriotism.

New corruption allegations lodged in Ukraine against President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, have thrust Manafort back into the forefront of ongoing scrutiny over whether the Trump team coordinated with the Russian government to influence the U.S. election.

The allegations were disclosed Tuesday at a news conference by a Ukrainian lawmaker who said he had obtained documents showing that Manafort had attempted to hide payments he had received from the party of Ukraine’s former president, who is living in Russia and wanted on corruption charges­ in his home country.

A spokesman for Manafort called the claims “baseless” and said some of the documents released Tuesday appeared to be fabricated because the letterhead and signatures did not match those belonging to Manafort.

The spectacle in Kiev came just hours after FBI Director James B. Comey confirmed the existence of a federal probe into possible connections between Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin.

It also followed an apparent effort by the White House to distance Trump from the man who helped lead his campaign during five critical months into last summer, with White House press secretary Sean Spicer declaring Monday that Manafort had played a “limited role for a very limited amount of time” in the campaign.

Manafort, 67, a longtime lobbyist and Republican strategist, was hired by the Trump campaign in March 2016, a time when Trump was winning primaries but feared he could still lose the nomination if his team failed to properly master arcane convention rules and wrangle votes from Republican delegates. In May, he was named the campaign’s chairman.

From the start, there was focus on Manafort’s ties to pro-Russian figures, given Trump’s repeated calls to forge closer relations to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin and Russia’s emerging role over the summer in seeking to meddle in the U.S. election.

>> No. 115998 ID: d4c8ee
It wasn't just $12 million. There was also $10 million annual starting in 2006.
>Manafort proposed in a confidential strategy plan as early as June 2005 that he would influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and the former Soviet republics to benefit the Putin government, even as U.S.-Russia relations under Republican President George W. Bush grew worse.

>Manafort pitched the plans to Russian aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska, a close Putin ally with whom Manafort eventually signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006, according to interviews with several people familiar with payments to Manafort and business records obtained by the AP. Manafort and Deripaska maintained a business relationship until at least 2009, according to one person familiar with the work.

Two leading members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are asking the FBI and the Justice Department to hand over any warrant applications related to possible wiretaps of Donald Trump and his team after the president accused his predecessor of illegally tracking his conversations.

Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), the top Republican and Democrat on the Judiciary Committee’s crime and terrorism panel, wrote Wednesday to FBI Director James B. Comey and acting deputy attorney general Dana Boente asking for “copies of any warrant applications and court orders — redacted as necessary . . . related to wiretaps of President Trump, the Trump Campaign, or Trump Tower.”

Boente was recently put in charge of such issues at the Justice Department after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from matters pertaining to the Trump campaign.

“We would take any abuse of wiretapping authorities for political purposes very seriously,” Graham and Whitehouse wrote. “We would be equally alarmed to learn that a court found enough evidence of criminal activity or contact with a foreign power to legally authorize a wiretap of President Trump, the Trump Campaign, or Trump Tower.”

Trump’s weekend accusation that the Obama administration had ordered wiretaps of his phones, delivered via Twitter, sent members of Congress into a frenzy this week. Some Republicans quickly responded positively to the president’s demands for a congressional investigation, while Democrats and other Republicans expressed alarm that Trump had made such an accusation without providing any evidence to support it.

Comey has already asked the Justice Department to refute Trump’s accusation. White House officials have tried to deflect that, calling for a congressional investigation — and refusing to answer questions about what evidence the president’s accusation rests upon until such an investigation commences.

Several members of Congress have said that Trump needs to publicly explain the substance behind those allegations before Congress should dig into it. The leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, meanwhile, have agreed to include an examination into potential wiretaps in their ongoing probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections — though they acknowledged that there is no evidence yet that such wiretapping took place.

>The New York Times has confirmed that Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano sourced his false allegation that former President Barack Obama asked British intelligence to spy on President Donald Trump to a discredited former CIA analyst. This analyst, Larry C. Johnson, floated the conspiracy theory on the Russian state-sponsored news network RT on March 6, the week after Trump's original accusation that Obama was responsible for an illegal wiretap.

>On March 13, Napolitano told hosts of Fox News' Fox & Friends that Obama circumvented the American intelligence community to ask "the British spying agency" for "transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump" without "American fingerprints." Napolitano's claims were cited by White House press secretary Sean Spicer while defending Trump's baseless claims that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election.

>On March 14, Media Matters uncovered the link between Napolitano's claims and an interview Johnson gave to RT. The New York Times confirmed Media Matters' reporting that Napolitano used Johnson as "one of the sources" for his "claim about British intelligence." The Times also noted Johnson's direct involvement in spreading false rumors that video existed of Michelle Obama using a racial slur against white people. From the March 17 article:

>Mr. [Andrew] Napolitano's unlikely leap into global politics can be explained by his friendship with Mr. Trump, whom he met with this year to discuss potential Supreme Court nominees. Mr. Napolitano also has a taste for conspiracy theories, which led him to Larry C. Johnson, a former intelligence officer best known for spreading a hoax about Michelle Obama.

>Mr. Johnson, who was himself once a Fox News contributor, said in a telephone interview that Mr. Napolitano called him on Friday and requested that he speak to The New York Times. Mr. Johnson said he was one of the sources for Mr. Napolitano's claim about British intelligence.

>Mr. Johnson became infamous in political circles after he spread false rumors in 2008 that Michelle Obama had been videotaped using a slur against Caucasians. In the interview on Friday, Mr. Johnson acknowledged his notoriety, but said that his knowledge of surveillance of Mr. Trump came from sources in the American intelligence community.

Closer to $50 million current year dollars. It's a freight helicopter that carries twice what the previous aircraft carried to the same range, while being the same size. That's a pretty monumental increase in improvement and would warrant the cost...



if it was real. But it's not, the idiots arrive at the cost of $122 million by dividing the total program cost ($25 billion) by 200 of the lot aircraft plus prototypes. This is fucking retarded, by that logic F-35 is $691 million.

The B-50 was the other way around. The USAF needed the improved B-29D but they were scrapping most of the old war production B-29s. So to get congress to approve it they changed the designation number.

There was also the FJ-1 Fury, a straight wing jet derived from the P-51 design, and the FJ-2/3 Fury, a navilized F-86. And the FJ-4 Fury which was again a F-86 but was again different from the FJ-2.

>Seems like Putin scooped the MSM on this one

An intriguing Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that former President Barack Obama fled Washington D.C. this past Friday (10 March) traveling to New York City, Omaha (Nebraska), San Jose (California) and ending up in Hawaii—all occurring within 36 hours while he sought elite allies to defend him, and keeping him ahead of investigators from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) of the US Department of the Treasury (DoT) seeking to interview him about one of the largest drug busts in American history occurring in the Caribbean aboard a fishing vessel named the Lady Michelle.

According to this report, nearly immediately upon taking office as President Donald Trump’s Attorney General on 9 February, Jeff Sessions, as head of the US Department of Justice (DOJ), was handed a top secret file by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey detailing the nearly two-decade long crimes of 12 current and former security and intelligence officers belonging to the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) who for at least 18 years under both the Bush and Obama regimes had smuggled into the United States at least $100 million worth of cocaine.

Four days after Attorney General Sessions received this top secret file on these Bush-Obama regime drug criminals from Director Comey, on 13 February, this report continues, he ordered their immediate arrest—and that was meant to coincide with former President Obama being out of the United States as he was vacationing in the Virgin Islands.

Upon their learning that Attorney General Sessions had ordered the arrest of this Bush-Obama regime TSA criminal drug ring, this report details, “surrogates/accomplices” of former President Obama vacationing with him in the Virgin Islands attempted to contact a Guyana national named Mohamed Nazim Hoseain—whom the SVR had previously identified as being an organizational member of the Islamic terror group known as the Muslim Brotherhood—and that President Trump is now preparing to name as a terror organization too.

Mohamed Nazim Hoseain, this report explains, was unable, however, to be contacted by former President Obama’s “surrogates/accomplices” as the fishing vessel he was the captain of, named the Lady Michelle, was dead in the water about 70 nautical miles off Paramaribo, Suriname, in international waters after all of its electronics had been disabled by a US Navy EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft—and that shortly afterwards, on 16 February, it was boarded by the US Coast Guard whom discovered over 4 tonnes of cocaine valued at $125 million—and was the largest US drug bust in the Caribbean since 1999.

Arrested with Mohamed Nazim Hoseain aboard the Lady Michelle drug ship, this report continues, were Richard La Cruz, 49; Ne

Too many three-letter agencies in this report, I don't believe there's anything worth investigating. Though, after War On Drugs and war in Afghanistan it is no surprise to anyone with brain matter that top NATO figures are swimming in drug money.

>In exchange for information and assistance in quashing competing criminal syndicates, the Bush and Obama administrations let the Sinaloa cartel import tons of drugs into the United States while wiping out Sinaloa competitors and ensuring that its leaders would not be prosecuted for their long list of major crimes.
Old news are old.

>That story, with the typo-laden headline “Israeli Defense Minister: If Pakistan send ground troops to Syria on any pretext, we will destroy this country with a nuclear attack,” appeared on the website on Dec. 20, alongside articles with headlines like “Clinton is staging a military coup against Trump.”

>On her Tuesday show, Rachel Maddow teased a scoop: She had Donald Trump's 2005 tax returns. It was the first time his federal returns would be released.
>Anyway, when she finally revealed what was in the taxes, it was not a huge deal. Trump earned about $150 million in income in 2005, and paid $38 million in taxes, thanks to the alternative minimum tax, which he wants to kill.


Trump sends Maddow a "customer copy" of his own tax return, only Trump has access to this copy. Maddow thinks she made a journalism and releases them.
Tax returns prove Trump paid more in taxes than Obama, Sanders, and any other presidential candidate. This kills the MSM attack line of "hurr you dont support veterans with your taxes".
They also prove he had no payments from Russia whatsoever, thus defeating another MSM lie.

>In 2005, the tax returns show, Trump was still benefitting from the massive, $916 million loss he claimed in 1995. Documents obtained by The Times suggested it would technically have been possible for the president to convert that loss into a $50 million tax credit every year for 18 years afterward, but the new 1040 confirms that in 2005 he was, in fact, still taking advantage of that loophole – a loophole Congress closed in 1996, the year after he claimed it.

That loophole wasn't closed as much as modified heavily, the rate is lower now but callback loss is still in effect.

He was taxed at a rate that included the lost money, and he called back the tax credit on those losses.

When the government overtaxes you they don't get to keep the money, it's Trumps money for fucks sake. He was being investigated by IRS because Obama uses IRS as a weapon against conservatives.

In summary: Earlier this year Park Geun-hye, the daughter of Korea's third president/military dictator who was assassinated in 1979, turned out to have had this Rasputin style cult-leader/psychic and his daughter as BFFs/"spiritual advisors" who naturally used this position to take bribes bribes, blacklist people they didn't like, enable corruption, influence government, etc. (The guy who assassinated Park Senior claimed this was one of the motivations for killing him.)

The resulting corruption investigations have nailed a number of important people including the VP of Samsung who, amongst other things, formed a "equestrian team" for the company, said team received $8 million dollars and a horse worth $1 million but never grew larger than Female Rasputin's daughter and a single coach.

Currently the president's supporters have started rioting and attacking the police, and three of them have died so far, including a 70 year old man who apparently climbed on top of a police bus and then fell off.

>Park Geun-hye, the nation’s first female president and the daughter of the Cold War military dictator Park Chung-hee, had been an icon of the conservative establishment that joined Washington in pressing for a hard line against North Korea’s nuclear provocations.

>Now, her downfall is expected to shift South Korean politics to the opposition, whose leaders want more engagement with North Korea and are wary of a major confrontation in the region. They say they will re-examine the country’s joint strategy on North Korea with the United States and defuse tensions with China, which has sounded alarms about the growing American military footprint in Asia.

WikiLeaks has published a huge trove of what appear to be CIA spying secrets.

The files are the most comprehensive release of US spying files ever made public, according to Julian Assange. In all, there are 8,761 documents that account for "the entire hacking capacity of the CIA", Mr Assange claimed in a release, and the trove is just the first of a series of "Vault 7" leaks.

Already, the files include far more pages than the Snowden files that exposed the vast hacking power of the NSA and other agencies.

In publishing the documents, WikiLeaks had ensured that the CIA had "lost control of its arsenal", he claimed. That included a range of software and exploits that if real could allow unparalleled control of computers around the world.

It includes software that could allow people to take control of the most popular consumer electronics products used today, claimed WikiLeaks.

"'Year Zero' introduces the scope and direction of the CIA's global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of "zero day" weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones," the organisation said in a release.

The public files don't include the cyber weapons themselves, according to a statement. The organisation will refrain from distributing "armed" software "until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the CIA's program and how such 'weapons' should analyzed, disarmed and published", it said.

>The problem isn't the CIA using electronic surveillance and espionage methods, the problem is what they do with it

This is what cracks me up about all the Snowden hate/leaks this, leaks that stuff. The what of it all is hardly surprising at all, but that part is what (barely) gets the populace riled up for a week or two before they forget again.

Meanwhile what Snowden leaked that caused the gov to flip out wasn't the lol methodology, it's *who* we were really watching. Which wasn't so much terrorist groups/foreign govs/or domestic spying... it was environmental groups.

  Initial Thoughts: Wikileaks CIA Vault7 Leak
>> No. 115856 ID: 813f6b

It's a very superficial and annoying vid to watch if you're technical and up to speed on Vault 7.

>In their haste to post articles about the release, almost all the leading news organizations took the WikiLeaks tweets at face value. Their initial accounts mentioned Signal, WhatsApp and other encrypted apps by name, and described them as “bypassed” or otherwise compromised by the C.I.A.’s cyberspying tools.

>Yet on closer inspection, this turned out to be misleading. Neither Signal nor WhatsApp, for example, appears by name in any of the alleged C.I.A. files in the cache. (Using automated tools to search the whole database, as security researchers subsequently did, turned up no hits.) More important, the hacking methods described in the documents do not, in fact, include the ability to bypass such encrypted apps — at least not in the sense of “bypass” that had seemed so alarming. Indeed, if anything, the C.I.A. documents in the cache confirm the strength of encryption technologies.

The CIA stuff got leaked man, everyone has access to their backdoors. This is open information. State and even non-state agents like terrorist groups potentially have access to vulnerabilities that can not only fuck over American companies and citizens, but also make someone else think a third party did it.

According to French intel sources anyways.

>According to a French journalist, Israel’s newly received F-35A Adir stealth fighters have already seen combat. Reportedly, a first air strike was flown against targets in Syria in January – less than a month after the jets first touched down in Israel.

>Georges Malbrunot, who writes for French newspaper Le Figaro, cited French intelligence sources. He posted on Twitter today that examples of the Israeli F-35 – two of which have been delivered to the country to date – took part in a raid over Syrian territory on the night of January 12-13. The mission saw them strike objectives around the capital, Damascus.

>According to Malbrunot, the F-35s targeted warehouses containing Russian-made Pantsir-S1 mobile surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems that Israel feared could be delivered from Syria to Hezbollah forces operating in Lebanon. The warehouse was located at Mezzeh, a military airfield in Damascus.

>During the same attack, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) also reportedly destroyed an S-300 SAM battery deployed near the Syrian presidential palace, on Mount Qassioun. According to the same unnamed French intelligence source quoted by Malbrunot, the F-35 aircraft finally overflew the palace of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, before returning to Israel.

>Malbrunot provided a final quote from an unnamed soldier, explaining that: ‘With the Pantsir, Hezbollah ensures that the Israeli Air Force is almost totally unable to operate over Lebanon.’

>Providing the account is true, it seems unlikely that Israel would admit the use of F-35s at this stage. However, in the past the IAF has been quick to put new assets into combat if required for specific missions – and the continued effort to prevent advanced weapons landing in Hezbollah hands may fit that remit.

I know we handed over the blueprints to china, but now I guess were handing over the final product as well.

So much for the claims of Russian missile salesmen.

Come on now.

I reportedly fucked your mom, so much for her virtue.
