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.
