U.S. – That’s Okay Because We Are Going to Crackdown on Beijing

Approximately 500 million guests have been caught in a cyberattack that involved the Marriott Hotel chain.

A JW Marriott hotel is seen in Los Angeles

The Marriott just happens to be the top hotel provider in the United States for US government and military personnel.

According to the latest and greatest rumor in Washington, that cyberattack was brought about by Chinese hackers working on behalf of the Ministry of State Security.

infant-social-security-numbers-for-sale-on-dark-web-crimeshop

This really is not a huge shock to be honest. Isn’t everyone hacking everyone these days?

Our data which we entrust with just about everyone we do business anymore is up for sale and/or theft, like it or not.

big-tech-sells-user-data_crimeshop

According to 4 government officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, The Justice Department is preparing to announce new indictments against Chinese hackers working for the intelligence and military services.

Also, the Trump administration plans to declassify intelligence to reveal concerted efforts by Chinese agents, dating to 2014 or earlier, to build a database containing names of executives and American government officials with security clearances.

Some are suggesting that the moves are in part due to the fact that the Trump Administration is worried that that the 90-day trade truce negotiated between President Trump and President Xi Jinping in Buenos Aires two weeks ago may do little to change China’s behavior.

Some have gone so far as to say, that includes coercing American companies to hand over valuable technology if they seek to enter the Chinese market, as well as the theft of industrial secrets on behalf of state-owned companies.

Which is in fact, something that China is very well known for doing.

In this instance the administration is truly looking out for the best interests of America.

Kelsey Berreth – Missing

missing-kelsey-berreth-crimeshop

Woodland Park, Colorado

woodland park-colorado-crimeshop

Kelsey was last seen publicly on surveillance cameras shopping at the Safeway in Woodland Park with her daughter on Thanksgiving. Officers said she later exchanged her daughter with her fiance and that was the last time anyone has seen her.

Oddly, 10 days went by before anyone reported her missing and even more odd, just 3 days after anyone last saw Kelsey, on November 25th, police say her cell phone pinged in Gooding, Idaho roughly 800 miles away from Woodland Park.

Her family has said that this is not like Kelsey who is a devoted mother, close to her family and devoted to her job as an aviation instructor at Doss Aviation in Pueblo, Colorado.

The phone went on to send a text from Kelsey’s phone to her employer stating that she would not be into work the following week. Police say Kelsey’s fiancé, Patrick Frasee, is being cooperative. He told police the last text he received from her phone was on November 25th as well.

He told officers he had not seen her since Thanksgiving when he met to exchange their daughter.

He also did not report her missing, it was Kelsey’s mother who did that on December 2nd.

A search of her home revealed nothing missing, nothing to indicate she had planned a trip or any type of travel.

It also did not appear that a struggle took place.

At this juncture police are treating the case as a missing persons case however, my belief based off of what I have seen and am sensing, deeply, if you catch my drift, is that they should be looking at the case differently. 

kelsey-berreth-crimeshop

No mother would just up and leave her small child without a reason. Additionally, Kelsey seemed to be leading a happy, productive life.

Although to play devil’s advocate, people have gone to great lengths to up and vanish when life has simply become too much.

I do not believe this is the case here, however.   

It is pure, seemingly planned coincidence that the phone pinged from 800 miles away, 3 days after she went missing. It feels too planned.

That also happens to be a fairly common maneuver of someone who is attempting to cover his or her tracks.  

The reality of that is when you do not see obvious signs of a struggle, or any indication that she was going somewhere she did not want to go, she ended up leaving with someone that she knows and trusted.

Because that text gave a lot more away than the sender intended it would, something not good happened, things are quite amiss.

And that would have had to have been someone who is close to her.

Close enough to know how to get into her phone should she not be able to do that herself.

Most parents of small children tend to make sure they keep cell phones locked down because kids love playing with them.

My sense is that the phone and Kelsey were not together at least in the physical living sense at the time the text was sent.

I am more curious as to why it was that Kelsey’s fiancé had not reported her missing, no concern for the woman he was engaged to?

Police should refocus the investigation because it was no coincidence that the texts came 3 days after she had gone missing from another state.

Markets Worry of A New Financial Crisis in 2019

markets-set-to-crash-crimeshop

Stock’s Hit Hard Causing Fears

Over the last few years, we’ve seen stocks continue to rise, it is true that some stocks rose upwards of $17, $18 trillion.

DonaldThrowingMoney-crimeshop

In turn it has created quite a buzz among the wealthy which has caused the hunger of pure greed to follow. People can not get enough it would seem.

nyse-wall-street-crimeshop

On the flip side of that however is what is commonly referred to as the market doom and gloom predictions and some are already predicting a brand new financial crisis, just in time to ring in a new year.

financial-crisis-2019-crimeShop.jpg

The reality:

Overall, stocks are down 1.5 percent this year, after hitting phenomenal heights in early October.

Hedge funds are having their worst year since the 2008 crisis.

Household debt recently hit another record high of $13.5 trillion which is up $837 billion from the previous peak

And all of that happens be a mirror image of what preceded the Great Recession.

Massive run-up in stocks, real estate and other assets have fueled a decade of low interest rates.

76 year old Jim Rogers, the influential fund manager and commentator, has forewarned of a crash that will be “the biggest in my lifetime.”

financial-crisis-crimeshop

Currently the mountain of student debt is in reality just a $1.5 trillion bet that a generation of underemployed young people will ever be able pay off a hundred grand in tuition loans in an economy where even hedge funders can’t seem to afford the cost of living.

Just back in 2008, it was the housing market that was faced with the very same type of delima.

At present a lot of former students simply are not paying back the loans, more often than not, simply because they can’t pay.

By comparison to 2008 these are massive amounts of unaffordable loans being made to people who can’t pay them, who may ever be able to pay them back.

Quite a bit of that debt is owed to the Federal Government by the way which is not going to hit banks like the crash in 2008 however, the current burden of debt is already beginning to wipe out the next generation of home buyers and auto purchasers.

Ever since the Federal Reserve started printing money in the name of “quantitative easing” to pull us out of the last financial crisis, money has been cheap, and seemingly any American who can prove just a couple of weeks worth of employment can obtain a credit line and has been able to fake “rich” by spending it like its water.

Currently, that system is now running in reverse. Ouch!

As a result, the Fed has been hiking rates and spooking markets in order to stave off inflation and other potential ills.

China out of any nation worldwide has the worst debt, ever. In China they dumped cash into what they dreamt would be world class working cities, homes, factories, shopping centers and the like, now all sit as ghost towns lying in waste and utter ruin.

Add to that the country also more than doubled its population to roughly 1.4 billion people.

If the China debt-bomb gets pricked by a pin, it will affect the entire world because China’s debt is a ticking time bomb that will explode eventually and that fallout is worldwide with nowhere to hide. It is not a matter of if, but when.

Some are speculating that Brexit, well that could cause all sorts of countries just up and leaving the European Union which in turn could affect the world markets.

2019-Financial-Crisis_.CrimeShop

Will the markets crash in 2019 or not?

No one knows for sure really, one thing is for certain, those deep within the financial industry are already bracing themselves and planning for a potential crash in the coming new year.

Impeachment Hearings Highly Probable Now?

robert-mueller-trump-crimeshop

Trump Getting Worried

A new rumor heading out the door this weekend is that Donald Trump is beginning to worry about the possibility of facing impeachment hearings.

impeachment_clock_crimeshop

In absolute honesty, I am pretty shocked we have not yet crossed that bridge. Leaving Trump President is the equivalent of handing the keys to patients at an insane asylum.

In either case, on the eve of a brand new week, it’s starting to look a lot like impeachment hearings are more probable than ever.

fat-ass-trump-crimeshop

And Trump is beginning to worry.

Some of the allegations against that are being levied against Trump were revealed through a sentencing memo written by federal prosecutors for the president’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen.

In that document, references Trump as “Individual 1,” says that the president led the criminal conspiracy to pay off two women with whom he allegedly had extramarital affairs.

Which is in fact, cause for impeachment hearings into the conduct of one Donald J Trump.

robert-mueller-CrimeShop

Robert Mueller has been connecting the dots and has in fact found; obstruction intended to hide the truth about the Trump campaign, Trump, his business organization, and his family from the investigators and our nation.

impeach-trump-cimeshop

Trump has no more henchmen because they all turned on him in the end and it is abundantly clear that he is not going to be able to bully his way out of this one

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been able to get indictments against 33 people in his ongoing investigations with regards to the Trump campaign and if they colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.

No one however, has been charged for colluding with Russia, but various other crimes have been uncovered. Robert Mueller’s final report is expected soon, and word on the hill indicates that many politicians are suggesting that the president could be impeached, or even criminally indicted and jailed.

Robert-S-mueller-Crimeshop

Let’s all just hope for number 2 here because that is the only way we’ll ever be able to take the mans Twitter account away.

Trump Administration & the Arrest of Meng Wanzhou

Huawei-CFO-Crimeshop

Huawei, Chief Financial Officer Faces US Charges

Huawei-crimeshop

If anyone has been paying attention to the news lately, Chinese telecom giant Huawei has faced quite a bit of backlash worldwide, mainly it has been accused of installing spyware, malware and data mining programs into its smartphones then selling those devices worldwide and then stealing consumer data.

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

Now it appears that the Trump Administration is stepping in and asked that Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s Chief Financial Officer be arrested in Canada and accused of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran through a Huawei subsidiary called Skycom, charges that if true will end up with Meng serving up to 30 yars in a U.S. prison.

But let’s look at the background of Meng before we all jump the gun and pass along judgement. Meng’s father just so happens to be a major figure in President Xi Jinping’s inner circle. Yes, he is a big part of that boys club.

And it is for that reason that many are wondering if the Trump administration orchestrated the charges against Meng for the sole purpose of using her as leverage that it can use towards the US/China war on trade.

President-X-Donald-Trump-Crimeshop.jpeg

US economic advisor Larry Kudlow has implied that the talks regarding the trade accord will not be seriously affected but, President Xi has not yet spoken about the matter.

Oddly, Meng’s arrest happened, quite literally, as Trump and Chinese President Xi were sitting together at a working dinner in Argentina.

At present Anti-U.S. outrage is reaching a boiling point within the Chinese media, and that has the potential to trigger nationalist demonstrations that will put pressure on the Chinese government.

trump-administration-crimeshop

Many worldwide are wondering if the Trump administration is being duplicitous or incompetent, for the charges against Meng, what everyone does know for sure is that if it is proven that the US has used the arrest of Meng in any way so as to sway the trade acord or any part of the Chinese government, the US will pay a very big price over it.

Saudi Arabia Lobbied Trump During Campaign?

saudia-arabia-prince

Trump – Saudi Love Affair

You know you do have to hand it to Donald Trump for all of his bullshit, the guy is still sitting in the White House and instead of holding the title of “janitor” he is still the president of the United States.

crushing-dumbness-of-donald-trump-crimeshop

Nothing is off the table with Trump at the helm it seems, collusion, sleeping with a hooker, I mean, who wouldn’t right, but now it’s starting to come to light that not even bribing the president in order to get favors also fair game.

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

Why didn’t any of the rest of us think of this, we could have bribed him right out of the White House.  

The WaPo released a report in reference to Saudi Arabia bribing Donald Trump using and this is absolutely disgusting, US War Veterans.

That is pretty below the belt in all honesty.

-saudi-arabia-crimeshop

According to the report the Saudi Arabian government funded a group of lobbyists who booked around an astonishing – 500 nights at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

Those rooms, they were filled with unsuspecting U.S. veterans, in what is being described as an alleged scheme to send Saudi money into the Trump Organization, which began in late 2016.

The Story goes a lot like this:

“Saudi-funded lobbyists began offering free trips to D.C. to military veterans, under the guise of having them protest the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), a new law, backed by the families of Sept. 11 victims, [that] opened the door to costly litigation alleging that the Saudi government bore some blame for the attacks. (The veterans were told the law could cause other countries to retaliate, and might lead to vets being prosecuted overseas for actions their units had taken while at war.)”

Rumor has it however, that those who were sent to D.C. didn’t really protest much, they didn’t even know why in the hell they were going, which left one simple question, if no one was really protesting why were the veterans really being sent to Trump’s D.C. hotel?

donald-trump-bribed

The obvious and more than abundantly clear reason of course, to bribe one Donald J Trump, newly crowned President of the United States.

bribing-trump

Trump is clearly in pretty deep with things, yet, he still hasn’t fully understood the extent of favors he owes certain world leaders, those that got him to where he is, those who lined his pocketbook.

idiot-trump-crimeshop

The effort to buy America, that goes pretty deep worldwide, and more than just the few we have read about were in on that.

Including those that outwardly do take the hard-line with Trump and his administration.

Too inept to truly understand that he sold himself out while at same time, selling out the United States.

These leaders who bought him the US Presidency, should Trump not play well with them, will in fact ensure that he loses his coveted seat at the big kids table.

NYPD – Tells Officers Please Do Not Record Your Naughty Bits With Your Body Cam

nypd-crimeshop.jpeg

NYPD 79th Precinct

Have you ever been sitting around with your body cam, bored and itching to shoot some video of your testicles? No?

Me either, oddly enough.

NYPD- Raymond-Williams-bodycam-testicle-pic-crimeshop

But for Detective Specialist Raymond Williams of the 79th Precinct of the NYPD, I guess the temptation was just too much.

Raymond recorded a 32-second video of his testicles on a body cam which was then ‘accidentally’ discovered by a female staffer at the city’s Legal Bureau during a review of recordings.

nypd-body-cam-crimeshop

Raymond has subsequently been suspended for the prank which went down according to the report like this:

“Oct 2, Raymond took possession of another member of the service’s department issued body camera and recorded a 32-second second video consisting of him intentionally exposing his testicles while in the 79 Precinct Special Operations Office, Williams’ naked behind and testicles were on full display, and he even rubbed his penis.”

Wait a second, did this just go from innocent prank to full on soft-core porn?

To make matters worse, Raymonds position is that of a community liaison between police and citizens.

As a general rule of thumb, most officers do refrain from recording soft-core porn with ones body cam but for Raymond, it seems that he simply could not resist the temptation.

Head of MI6 – Warns Russia

alex-younger-mi6-crimeshop

ST ANDREWS, Scotland

The Head of Britain’s foreign intelligence service, Alex Younger, is about to send a clear warning to the Kremlin today in that Russia should not make the mistake of  underestimating the West.

FILE PHOTO: The MI6 Vauxhall Cross building raises the Rainbow Flag to mark its support for the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia in London

The warning follows a nerve agent attack on a retired double agent in England which in turn, stoked fears about Russian covert activity abroad.

sergei-skripal-russian-spy_crimeshop

The attack on Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer was in fact carried out by Russian agents, you would be pretty hard pressed to find anyone but those in the Kremlin who would argue that.

Yet, before everyone pounces on the back of Russia here, Sergi betrayed MI6 agents, US agents and many, many more, including those of his own homeland.

Basically the guy was all too willing to work with the highest bidder, his greed overtook his better judgement.

American and British Intelligence were both responsible for the deaths of scientists a few years back, so I hardly see the reasoning behind this casting of stones. Sergei was a dirtbag, he turned on his own when they wouldn’t pay him what he wanted so he sold them out to someone who was willing to pay more and he then turned on the hands the fed him all the way around making quite a full circle of betrayal and deceit.  

This is the oldest story in the book of spies.

The most curious aspect of all of this is that Russia has been busy creating allies with the west’s enemies, if anyone has bothered to notice this, at all.

Donald-Trump-takes-down-media-crimeshop

Those enemies are powerful, dangerous and unpredictable.    

Russia Putin

 

Which translates as the Kremlin is working up to something bigger than anyone has anticipated so far.

G20 Summit – Buenos Aires

Donald Trump – Making the US Look Even Worse

I heard a rumor about Trump’s plans to play the part of an actual diplomat at this weekends G20 summit and promptly spat out and dropped my beloved coffee.

Cup of tea spilling over a keyboard

I was in both disbelief and horror.

Inauguration Ceremony of United States President, Barack Obama, US Capitol, Washington DC, America - 20 Jan 2009

Someone should really inform the man that a real president would not feel the need to “play” the part of a real life diplomatic leader.  

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Campaigns Throughout Iowa

Trump has continually made the US appear foolish due to our complete lack of any and all leadership and the reality is, as we head into this weekend, Trump is going to face some challenges.

crushing-dumbness-of-donald-trump-crimeshop

We started a trade war, which has trickled down worldwide and hit every nations economy, thanks for that Donald.

We have seen a fairly violent confrontation between Russia and the Ukraine, Russia is currently unhappy with Trump and his administration of late not to mention that on Tuesday Trump threatened to cancel his meeting with Putin.

Trump went against his own administration with regards to the Jamal Khashoggi murder.

drunk-donald-trump-crimeshop

In the past with these at the G-7 and a NATO meetings Trump has come across as a know it all, lecturing others, threatening more worldly leaders than he has proven to be and sat like a spoilt, sitting child in the corner pouting because he did not get his way.

donald-trump-pout-crimeshop.jpg

And let’s also not forget that Trump is a climate change denier, inserting his own personal opinions as fact rather than take a step back and look at any, umm oh I don’t know, scientific proof.

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

The garbage going on at the border currently…I mean honestly between FoxNews and CNN no one knows what is really going on, but one thing we know for sure is that Trump is insistent hardened gang members, terrorists, and thugs are trying to kill our military and border patrol just to get into the US to rape and pillage.

The world has seen the US completely fall and stumble from her normal elegant and graceful position all because of one man who was elected to office, as this nation’s leader. 

Trump’s administration might be ready for him to travel to the summit but let’s be really clear on one thing, the entire world, including its leaders are fairly tired and weary of Trump’s dramatics, threats, denials,  completely fabricated stories and childish temper tantrums.

So let’s all take a deep breath and hope that Donald Trump behaves as a grown up, as a president and as a real world leader rather than a spoilt, pouting child.

It’s time to be a real world leader for a change, Donald Trump not a deranged lunatic who wants to blow everything up.
