Russia Killing Journalists

shirtless-putin-hunting-crimeshop

Since 2000 dozens of Russian journalists have somehow met an untimely demise.

Russia Putin

The latest being, Maxim Borodin who suddenly fell or threw himself from his 5th floor balcony in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

Maxim had done some rather colorful stories about crime and political corruption, including a piece about Yevgeny Prigozhin, an oligarch who has been indicted by the United States for running the “troll factory” that helped Russia try to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

One thing Russia does not like, is negative press and so it makes sense that reporters in Russia who cover it, end up oh, dead at one point or another.

In March 2007, Ivan Safronov, who was investigating the sale of Russian arms to Iran and Syria, died after falling from a fifth-floor window.

Funny story, Ivan’s death was ruled a suicide.

Oddly, in February 2012, Victor Aphanasenko, editor of a newspaper that had been investigating paramilitary raids in southern Russia, died after slipping in his home.

November 2009, independent broadcaster Olga Kotovskaya fell to her death from a 14th-floor window.

Olga had been battling for control of her station with a member of the government.

Her death was also ruled a suicide.

In March 2017, Nikolai Gorokhov, the lawyer for Sergei Magnitsky, who was the source of reporting on Russia’s largest tax fraud, fell from a fourth-story window while trying to move a bathtub.

Who can forget Mikhail Lesin, who was Vladimir Putin’s state media czar but who had somehow fallen out of favor with Vladimir, and was found dead in November of 2015 after a fall in his hotel room in Washington, D.C. The FBI says he fell from extreme drinking and had “blunt force trauma to the head” and injuries to his neck, arms, legs and torso.

While and Independent autopsy ruled otherwise.

On the list of murdered or suicidal Russian reporters sits 30 individuals who stood up for the greater good.  

For all of you journalists in Russia, if you need to get a story out and are afraid of death, hit me up, I can and will get your story out.

James Comey – Donald Trump – The High School Musical.

trump-vs-james-comey-crimeshop

So, if like me whenever you have opened up the news on your device you have noticed the high school drama that has been playing out between President Donald Trump and Former FBI Director James Comey.

Now even Congress the and then Senate are involved as well as some former and current employees of the FBI.

All with ‘expert’ opinions.

This comes on the heels of James Comey’s book that was released on the 17th.

James-Comey-A-Higher-Loyalty-Crimeshop

Every mainstream article headline that I read left me feeling as if I were a young girl again and in high school.

Headlines that read much like:

“In tonight’s news, Trump raised one eyebrow when he heard James Comey compared him to a mob boss. Hear what our experts have read into that!”

“James Comey casually strolls through the park feeding birds stale bread as Trump calls him a slime ball, hear what our experts have read into that.”

“Tonight at 6pm ‘Current or former FBI ‘Official’, well we don’t care which he is, quite frankly, we don’t really know because he reported to under the condition anonymity which, may or may not be true, has an opinion with regards to James Comey and his book.”

“Trump walked out of the White House with one pant leg crumpled up. Stay tuned as our experts weigh in.”

“In exclusive video James Comey was seen walking through his house in a house robe, omg, hear what our experts have to say about James Comey’s mental frame of mind.

“Watch James Comey gaze at our reporter, its super intense and you cannot look away once you see it, we promise it’s super good and our reporter did not ever at one time look away, so like a cat, she won.” (Not sure what she won but according to a mainstream media outlet who shall remain unnamed, that reporter is the shit.)

Is it just me or has the mainstream media gotten way out of control with reporting on this Comey-Trump lovers quarrel?

Every lead in is like the opening for a game show.

It’s a book release for the love of God, a book that details someone’s personal experiences with Trump, it is not proof of any wrongdoing on the part of Trump because for that, one would need actual evidence.

Unless of course we no longer require that here in the US to convict someone.

Journalism-dead-crimeshop.jpg

Oh wait, that’s right, the media does not require evidence to convict someone these days.

At any rate, enough is enough, I think everyone is really tired of headlines filled with expert options with regards to Comey and Trump’s feud.

Let us make our own thoughts on the matter without the mainstream media’s incessant need to go well over the fine line of reporting and turn the nightly news into nothing more than propaganda reporting.

Trump – James Comey – Battle of Morals and Unethical Behaviors

trump-vs-james-comey-crimeshop.jpg

James Comey and Donald Trump Waltz

James-Comey-A-Higher-Loyalty-Crimeshop.jpg

In the days ahead of former FBI Director James Comey’s new book “A Higher Loyalty” it had already made the list of Amazon’s top selling books and also made a certain list of Donald Trump’s that shall remain unnamed at this juncture.

James-Comey-CrimeShop

In the book James Comey dishes in his always classy way, dirt on the current president, he compared Trump to a mob boss, which actually is not far off the mark truth be told.

Comey described in vivid detail about a time that Trump encouraged Comey to disprove, basically lie about an affair that Trump had had just so that he could reassure his wife.

So here we have the man, our president asking the head of the FBI to disprove, meaning make up evidence that really does not exist in an attempt to cover up a wrong that our president commented against the sanctity of his marriage.

trump-2018-pakistan-tweet-crimeshop

We already knew that Trump was a lying hypocrite though didn’t we?

Some are accusing the former director of the FBI of being unprofessional, giving the FBI a further tarnished image because he is releasing way too many details about his time with president Trump.

Trump of course has called Comey an “untruthful slimeball.”

The two are having a war of words currently.

Getting back to James however, some are bothered so much so by the book not so much because of the details James shares but because of the truly vindictive nature and way in which the dirt on Trump is delivered in the book.

It is rumored that those in Washington are very disturbed by the vindictiveness in the book.

Fair enough however, allow for me to point out that in today’s world if you want to hit the top of the food chain, that would be the behavior one would need in order to Trump, Donald Trump at his own game.

Not too long ago, many watched and complained about The Bachelor, where the show aired the bachelor breaking a woman’s heart on national television. Viewers then took to Twitter to tweet shock, horror and disgust, but the reality is how many actually stopped watching the show or will?

The show actually had really high ratings.

People get off on watching others being hurt, insulted or people simply behaving in a vindictive manner.

Yesterday I read an article where a woman was celebrating her breakup with her cheating ex by taking to social media and making mention of it, only in turn to humiliate her ex and the article was more or less about revenge and was sure to mention how many hits her story had received.

Take a stroll through any social media account around and you will for a fact see a video, an article, pictures of some type of horrible vindictive, hateful behaviors right here in the US.

Donald-Trump-takes-down-media-crimeshop

The vindictive behavior has only been encouraged and increased since Trump has taken office if anyone has watched his presidency the past year.

The behavior has also been encouraged by social media, the news, television shows, music, everywhere you look, you see encouragement for that behavior.

And Trump, constantly behaves as an insolent dog would, tweeting vindictive, hateful tweets, tempting the fate of the world by attacking other nations verbally, in writing and with childish insults, name calling and threats.

Trump has turned the beauty of the White House into nothing more than a swamp of trailer trash.

What could be more vindictive than a lot of what we have witnessed by our own president this past year?

The reality is that America loves revenge and vindictive behavior and until we simply ignore it, it is here to stay like it or not.

That type of behavior currently makes millions for some.

James-Comey-Crime-Shop

And for James Comey, that means that he is about to cash in on it not to mention that despite the fact that James has always been a man of class, his vindictiveness in his book is still 100 times classier than Donald Trump could ever dream of being.

Trump to Slow his Roll?

Trump Ruins Bid for Re-Election in 2020 – Kills off Republican Party?

TRUMP_republican-party-crimeshop.jpg

Some are suggesting that Trump might just be alienating himself of beloved supporters for his highly sought after bid on the 2020 election by tweeting some pretty vicious attacks on the likes of Amazon and a rumored trade war with China.

Oh but wait, he also has no advisors left in the Oval Office either, so that guy is pretty much running solo for now.

Look out world, Trump is about to go on a tangent and have a temper tantrum at some point here because he has no one around to tell him to stop before he tweets and/or opens his mouth in general.

Realistically, he loves to criminalize, insult and tell off anyone who goes against what he is for and what he tells himself to be true and/or factual, even when it’s total bullshit.

All we need now is for someone like Kim Jong-un or someone else to start tempting fate here and getting into a tweet altercation with Trump, then all hell breaks loose.

amazon-crimeshop

Trump’s idea of going to war with a giant like Amazon could be the start of a pretty big fall for Trump not to mention and this is important, his trade war with Asia is costing US farmers so he can count those votes out.

death-of-the-american-farmer-crimeshop

Overwhelmingly and rightfully so, Amazon has more supporters than does Trump and his entire administration both past and current combined, that includes his recently departed advisors.

To make matters even worse for Trump and the entire Republican Party, it was reported just today by Reuters that the older white Americans who once clamored for Trump are now leaving the party in troves.

Not just a few are leaving, it’s troves.

That is not good news for Trump and his party.

protest-trump-era-crimeshop

Factor in the fact that more and more Americans are taking to the streets to protest the Trump era and it’s beginning to look a lot like the Republican Party is about to obtain a pretty big and unwanted blackened eye.

The point is, yes while watching Trump has been a constant source of entertainment it looks a lot like people are tiring of his antics and not well thought out ways of handling things like healthcare, potential world war, trade and the like.

If Republicans lose major footing now it’s tough to say just how long it will take them to gain that back, if ever.

Then again, maybe Trump will slow his roll just a little and bring in some real experts to patch things over?

U.S. Army Sniper Becomes International Hitman

US-Army-Snipers-CrimeShop.jpg

 

Ex Soldiers Becoming Hitmen

What’s one to do with that U.S. Army sniper training?

us-army-hitmen-crimeshop.jpg

 

Become an international hitman.

A former U.S. Army sniper Joseph Hunter and not one but two former U.S. soldiers, Adam Samia and Carl David Stillwell are accused of becoming contracted hitmen for an international crime boss, one Paul Le Roux, who had some sort of vendetta against a real estate agent, Catherine Lee, in the Philippines who the crime boss felt had cheated him in some way.

So, as the story goes, he contracted out the three former U.S. Soldiers and offered to pay them to take out the real estate agent in execution style back in 2012.

The investigation has shed light onto what some are calling a private fraternity of mercenaries, trained by the United States Army, who are willing to ruthlessly kill for hard cold cash.

Catherine was in fact murdered upon a return from a trip she had taken to the countryside of Manila, she was shot twice in the face, her body was found on a pile of garbage on the side of the road.

After the men were paid, they were ordered back to the US where they were promptly arrested in 2015 for the hit.

Not making the wisest of choices, Carl David Stillwell had a picture on his phone of a bloody head wrapped in a towel dated on or around the time of Catherine’s murder, then he admitted to being in the driver’s seat of the van when she had been shot.

What’s more is that prosecutors also had surveillance of Joseph from a sting in Thailand that resulted in a completely separate conviction for plotting to kill a DEA agent.

In the surveillance recording, Joseph is overheard speaking about killing people for Paul Le Roux.

The murder of Catherine Lee actually does lack quite a bit of hard cold evidence that would tie all three to the murder, some of which is physical, no eyewitnesses and the like.

Regardless of the lack of actual evidence, all three men are still on trial for the murder of Catherine and it’s highly likely that they will all three get convicted.

So if anyone was wondering what to do with that US Army Sniper training, the answer is not to become a hitman, especially if you happen to be careless enough so as to get caught.

Hackers Targeting Your Office Gossip?

ransomware-crimeshop.jpg

Those Instant Message Services Aren’t so Private

Traditionally, when you think of a hacker being able to obtain your information, you might think that you somehow ended up innocently installing some form of malware which in turn opened up your work or home network to hackers.

dark-web-crimeshop

Which is pretty true, and one type of service we rarely think about are those instant messaging services used by many within the corporate world these days.

The amount of information your employees share on those unmanaged services is actually a lot more critical to an organization’s inner workings that one might really think.

What that opens any organization up to is a ransomware attack.

Using intel gleaned from an instant messaging service, hackers can obtain some pretty important details about an organization’s inner workings, it’s projects, it’s client base, how much money is involved with particular contracts and deals and they can even obtain details with regards to both current past employees.

Many of these instant messaging programs used are more often than not are not entirely secure and not that, they are not managed by a member of management much less a member of IT if an organization has an IT department.

Truthfully and also sadly, employee’s who partake in the fine art of office gossip using these types of services do not think about the vast amount of information they are gossiping about or sharing with one another much less, that the information could potentially be used in some future ransomware attack on the organization, it’s employee, bank, customer, etc.

Hackers are no longer using stolen intel to just simply steal things like bank account information, they are using information in order to take an organization’s entire network for hostage.

WannaCry-ransomeware-crimeshop

Ransomware attacks saw a surge of 2,500% in just 2017 alone.

slack-crimeshop.jpeg

Slacks one of the most popular messaging services used in offices these days admitted back in March that they found and patched a vulnerability that would have given hackers full access to chat histories, shared files among other critical data. Chat logs from your workforce can be a valuable and rich source of intel to any hacker worth his weight in gold.

That is a pretty big deal, one which will continue to be a growing concern because hackers do not suddenly get stupid, fix one vulnerability and another will be found, usually by hackers first.

So how does an organization get around this type of situation?

Easy get rid of things like instant messaging programs in your office and force your employees to keeping that office gossip, at the water cooler.

Facebook Employees More Concerned with Leaks Than It’s Users!

facebook-thumbsdown-crimeshop

Facebook – Continues to Show Users No Love

andrew-bosworth-facebook-crimeshop.jpg

This week has not been a great week again for Facebook. In the latest news to hit, Andrew Bosworth a VP at Facebook wrote in part the following memo back in 2016:

“Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools. And still we connect people. The ugly truth is that we believe in connecting people so deeply that anything that allows us to connect more people more often is “de facto” good.”

Of course Andrew has also come out on Thursday and stated:

“I didn’t agree with it even when I wrote it.”

facebook-kids-messenger-crimeshop

How splendid, the guy writes a memo where he is basically saying that he considers it a good thing that terrorists could potentially connect, plot an attack and kill thousands of innocent people using Facebook, then takes it back by stating that he didn’t really agree with what he said, he was just trying to pump his team up.

To make matters even worse for Facebook, they have quite a few employees upset that the memo leaked, the employees rather than take the high road and publicly disagree with the memo have taken it upon themselves to delete messages and anything that might become newsworthy because they do not want the users knowing how they really feel.

These employees simply do not care about the user base at all. Period and end of story.

That’s really what it all translates to here.

Facebook is losing ground faster than it’s gaining any.

The very culture of Facebook turned from caring about its users to simply using them for profit.

Mark Zuckerberg Delivers Keynote Address At Facebook F8 Conference

The conference will explore Facebook’s new technology initiatives and products. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

Which is not a shock, but if Facebook wants to get back on top it’s time for a Facelift and to start going about getting rid of those that are openly and clearly showing the lack of any and all empathy towards its user base.

It’s time to stop promoting a culture of having a user base that does not value the user base it has.

Greed is a terrible thing and those in positions like Andrew Bosworth are undeserving of the position they hold.

FaceBook stands to lose more than it will ever gain back if crucial changes are not made and made soon.

Government Covered up Media Czar Mikhail Lesin’s Murder?

Mikhail-Lesin-CrimeShop

Christopher Steele Seems to Think So

Christopher-Steele-CrimeShop.jpeg

Christopher Steele gave the FBI according to sources, a file containing some type of information that suggests the US government hid important details into the death of Vladimir Putin’s former media czar Mikhail Lesin in that he did not die by accident, rather he was murdered, in cold blood.

Christopher Steele is the author of the famous dossier where he asserted that Russia helped to assist, support and Trump’s run for the Oval Office.

New details are surfacing indicating that Mikhail died by blunt force trauma that is consistent with being bludgeoned to death rather than a fall by accident and that he died at the hands of hired thugs.

russia-kremlin_CrimeShop

Thugs that were hired by one Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin.

Putin-Imposes-UN-Sanctions-CrimeShop

That makes sense when you consider that Mikhail died on the eve of some sort of innocent meeting with the US Justice department.

I do not believe the meeting was to just catch up on the days news events or to trade gardening ideas.

According to Christopher the hired thugs were instructed to hurt Mikhail but not to kill him, I guess they glossed over that last detail.

It happens.

According to sources, three other individuals working independently of Christopher, also told the FBI that Mikhail had been bludgeoned to death.

Mikhail’s lifeless body was found 11/5/15 in a Washington DC hotel room.

The corner’s official determination was that Mikhail died of blunt force trauma to the head and neck, torso, upper extremities and lower extremities.

Even a complete idiot would look at the corners report and call foul on the governments officially released findings with regards to Mikhail’s death in that they determined his death to be “accidental.”

One of my best friends in the entire world will go off the rail and binge drink until blackout and what I can tell you is despite the many falls and bar fights I have witnessed him get into, the guy when drunk usually walks away unscathed for the most part. A few stitches and patch work and he’s good to go.

Even drunk I find it really hard to believe that Mikhail sustained all of the injuries reported whilst in a drunken stupor and by falling down.

Classically, this was a beating and it was an ordered beating.

These are just facts if you look at the autopsy report, I do not have inside information, rather the facts are clearly in the autopsy report.

The only thing that can’t be found in the report is details of who actually ordered the attack.

For that, you need to look at other evidence.

Which will not be easy to be found, but not impossible.

Perhaps the real question is why would the government cover this up?

Maybe the answer lies in roads yet to be traveled that are ahead.

NRA Losing Ground in Effort to Influence Gun Policy

March-for-Our-Lives-2018_crimeShop.jpeg

#MarchForOurLives – Rises Above the NRA’s Effort to Silence the Message!

March-for-our-lives-CrimeShop.jpg

This weekend we witnessed the youth of America stand up with a clear message in the US, now is the time to end gun violence in this country.

We also witnessed the NRA stand up against the courageous youth in this country by, tossing insults at the youth who represent an increasing number of individuals who are deeply opposed to more gun ownership in our nation.

Emma-Gonzalez-crimeshop.jpg

One such insult was from Colion Noir a pro gun host at NRATV who had a few choice words for the Parkland shooting survivors:

“No one would know your names if your classmates were alive today.”

I actually beg to differ with Colion here.

photo-march-for-our-lives-crimeshop.jpg

It makes no difference if anyone lives or dies when someone enters a heavily populated building, school, mall, airport, if they shoot any weapon in the attempt to take lives, everyone will be paying keen attention.

What’s more is that everyone is paying keen attention to the NRA and what it has had to say and do since the Parkland school shooting.

March_for_our_lives.crime_Shop

The NRA wants to silence the outspoken youth in this nation through insults and hurtful words because the reality is, that is pretty much all the NRA has left. We all know the why, because they would prefer to use these types of shootings in an attempt to continue to influence gun policy so that they can continue to line those fat juicy pockets they have, with hard cold cash.

The problem that they are currently having with the Parkland survivors is a fairly simple problem.

2018-March-For-Our-Lives-CrimeShop.jpeg

The survivors and the groups growing numbers represent a nation that is kind of tired of gun violence and a nation that feels we have better options and no longer have a need to arm individuals with guns.

Techers-March-For-Our-Lives-CrimeShop.jpg

That is called evolution, evolving, humans have been enjoying that privilege since the day we became human beings.

And that is meant to happen, and guns, they don’t help us evolve past being what we always were, violent beings.

The youth of today it would seem would like to help us grow past that need for violence while the NRA and pro-gun activists perpetuate it at every turn.

While some would argue the point with me until blue in the face, I am rather impervious to the argument that everyone has a right to be armed, to the contrary, they do not and no one really needs to be armed at any given moment.

March-for_our_lives_2018-CrimeShop.jpeg

Period.

What is even more interesting is that I continue to see pro gun statements all about social media, touting the second amendment which very few actually truly understand the meaning of.

no-more-march-for-our-lives-crimeshop.jpg

The 2nd amendment does not exist so that the youth of this nation don’t have to run for their lives, as of today that 2nd amendment is what pro-gun groups and the NRA hide behind in order to influence gun policies that no longer fit, work for or suit a nation that is defying the odds when it comes to gun violence.

And

It is time to go about disarming the NRA and pro-gun activists all together, for those ideals no longer serve this nation or its people.

Rather than attempt to influence gun policy through exploiting these types of shootings the NRA and the politicians who allow the NRA to buy it’s way into congress should take a very hard look at what happened when the Tobacco industry fell.

By logic, all murderous industries may enjoy a degree of time living high off the hog, but eventually they will tumble and tumble hard they will.

That industry never came back fully and the cold hard reality is, that if the NRA doesn’t elect to take a back seat on its own, they will in fact be forced to, sooner rather than later.
