Trump Administration & the Arrest of Meng Wanzhou

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

G2-2018-crimeshop

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.

Think Your iPhone is Safe From Malware – Think Again!

iOS-Malware-Crimeshop

Malware Able to Spy on iPhone User Data

For those of us with iPhones, it goes without saying that we love iOS, we pay a lot of money for the added security that Apple offers, plain and simple.

tim-cook-apple-crimeshop

But, if you think iOS is completely safe from malware, as I have said before, you are mistaken.

kaspersky-labs-moscow-crimeshop

Kaspersky Lab’s has in fact, found proof that a small spyware government contractor happens to be selling iOS malware.

And that malware, well it actually works in the iOS environment.

Negg, the government contractor has developed a “custom iOS malware that allows GPS tracking and performs audio surveillance activity.”

Kaspersky Lab researcher Alexey Firsh told Motherboard:

“We have uncovered an iOS implant, we assume that at the moment of discovery it was in a development stage and was not fully adapted to infect potential victims.”

malware-targets-apple-ios-crimeshop

Apple has been notorious for incredibly secure devices and for locking down it’s devices making them difficult to jailbreak, which make them less susceptible for malware to be installed on them.

Of course for those that are skilled in the fine art of developing malware and who like a challenge, they have always been willing to find ways around Apple’s security for a very high price.

DonaldThrowingMoney-crimeshop

Companies will pay around $3 million for software that jailbreaks and hacks iPhone and sadly researchers simply do not  report bugs to Apple because others pay better than Apple does.

To make matters worse, several groups specialize in the creation of iOS malware, specifically for the purpose of jailbreaking a device so that the malware can be downloaded on it.

Even worse than that?

-saudi-arabia-crimeshop

Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Saudi Arabia paid $55 million to purchase iPhone malware made by the NSO Group.

Governments worldwide are willing to shell out some pretty big cash just for the privilege of being able to hack into an iOS device.

Take a step back and let that sink in iOS lovers. .

Apple has made great strides to protect its users data, by the same token Apple has also alienated themselves from the rest of the world.

While at the very same time, painting a very large target on its own back.

And when Apple’s customers really fully realize what this means, it might change the way Apple’s stocks look, in the long term.

When one feels that it is above all of the rest and puts itself on a pedestal, it runs the very high and probable risk of becoming public enemy number one, not to mention being knocked right off of that pedestal.

DONALD TRUMP – Replace CNN With Worldwide U.S. Propaganda Network

Donald-Trump-takes-down-media-crimeshop

Donald Trump Attacks Cable News – Again

Another Monday, another attack on cable news by Trump.

cnn-CrimeShop

Trump again took to Twitter and had this to say:

“While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition. Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way, something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT! ”

fox-news-crimeshop

I’m sorry but doesn’t the US already have a worldwide propaganda network, FoxNews?

mainstream-media-weapons-of-mass-deception-crimeshop

Not to mention that Trump is just tossing around completely false claims in that CNN’s ratings here in the US seem to be low.

They aren’t and while I feel they get carried away with every major news stories they air, they do have some pretty impressive ratings.

trump-takes-on-media-crimeshop

Of course this is not unlike past claims towards CNN, NBC, MSNBC notably, Trump never seems to knock his already existing propaganda network, FoxNews.

Earlier this month Trump’s ridiculous feud with CNN reached a high point when he and Jim Acosta got into it during a press conference where the two had an pretty heated exchange the day after Republicans were dealt big losses in the midterm elections.

first-amendment-crimeshop

The argument ended with Trump and CNN arguing over first amendment rights.

Yet, I have to sit back and look at the reality of the situation in all honesty here, Trump has a degree of a point.

technology-better-than-trumps-state-of-the-union-crimeshop

The actual truth is that every cable news giant is already a propaganda churning network as it is.

Really, sit back and watch every single one for a week.

propaganda-media-controls-us-crimeshop

Here you will find biased reporting all the way around, we have some that you will find filling every news report with either pro-Trump or anti-Trump one sided reporting, sexism, some networks are clearly still full of racism while others support Trump in attempting to stifle the growth that we have achieved for our brothers and sisters in the LGBTQ communities.

The point being is that cable news does in fact abuse it’s first amendment rights because instead of actual reporting they are attempting to create fans through biased and not entirely truthful or factual reporting.

Every story is one sided with cable news these days.

Journalism-dead-crimeshop

Cable news, the mainstream media, they are far more responsible for creating some of the very major issues we face on a daily basis in the US.

They have by far, done way more damage than our President and Russian Meddling combined.

And because of that continual abuse, maybe the US should take a hardline against cable news and do away with it all together.

iPhone Customers File Class Action Lawsuit

app-store-monopoly.-crimeshop

App Store – Just a Big Monopoly?

Turns out, not all Apple lovin iPhone owners are all that thrilled with Apple’s App Store which only allows Apple Approved apps to be allowed into it’s marketplace.

apple-app-store-crimeshop

So those customers got together and filed a Class Action Lawsuit that the Supreme court plans to rule on in late June.

A lawsuit Apple hopes the nations Highest Court throws neatly out the window.

And, I’m with Apple on this one.

Those customers need to become Android users post, haste.

One of the biggest reasons for Apple only allowing approved apps onto it’s marketplace is because Apple is really, really good at reviewing apps so that no app in its marketplace has malware on it, unlike those one with let’s say and Android would find on the Google Play Store.

Google-Play-Store-crimeshop

Just this holiday weekend it was discovered that Google’s Play Store had apps on it’s marketplace that ended being installed 500,000 + times by its users.

Apple generally works really hard to make sure something like that does not happen before the app is ever offered on it’s marketplace. Apple does charge developers a 30% fee for each app offered once approved in its marketplace.

Technically, that is not a monopoly. Almost all apps from Google Play to the App Store are the same, the only difference is generally related to compatibility, trusted developers and those that contain malware.

David Frederick, a lawyer representing the customers had this to say:

“Apple’s intentionally closed system prevents competition, which enables the App Store to collect a higher price than if Apple were forced to entice app seekers in a competitive market.”  

Not sure if David has any Apple products or not, I do and side by side, almost all of the apps offered on both Google Play and the App store are the same.

Each marketplace is built specifically for different platforms.

Suing Apple over what it allows onto it’s marketplace is the very equivalent of telling Apple to change its entire platform.

Daniel Wall, a lawyer for Apple, says the company, is not stifling competition but had, “created a dynamic new industry where none had existed before, which drove an explosion of development and innovation in mobile apps.”

And, for the last 40 years, the courts have held that when there’s an illegal monopoly, only the direct purchaser can sue for damages.

Which means, you can’t sue Apple.

Only the app developers could sue, because they are the actual buyers of Apple’s distribution service not those of us that simply own an Apple product.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals however, reversed that.

US-Supreme-Court-Crimeshop

So Apple is taking matters all the way to the top.

And for once the Trump administration is doing something intelligent, siding with Apple on this. The Justice Department said it would be particularly hard to figure out whether the App Store overcharges, since the prices are set by tens of thousands of app developers and not Apple, if you wanted to be technical about it.

And I do love technicalities.

Guess we’ll all have to wait until June to see how the court rules this go around.

Once Putin’s Bitch – Russia Loses Faith in America

CNN to Blame?

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov:

“U.S. Unpredictability Under Trump Causing Global Concern”

Trust me Dmitry, even American’s would agree with you on that.

drunk-trump-crimeshop

Everything under Trump hangs in the balance these days.

cnn-CrimeShop

Now if you were to ask Trump about this, I am sure he would gladly blame the likes of CNN or maybe MSNBC perhaps, rather than actually own up to his deplorable rhetoric, lies, tall tales, half truths.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Dozhd TV:

“The fact that America has become unpredictable lately is no secret to anyone, such unpredictability from the largest country, the most powerful economy in the world, is the subject of deep global concern.”

In fact, in recent months the relationship between the United States and Russia has begun to crack, the bromance between Putin and his beloved Donald Trump has seemingly been unable to withstand the test of actual time and Trump’s complete idiocy.

trump_drunk-public-speech-crimeshop

For even a spokesman for the Kremlin to state this publicly is evidence of the worlds inability to have faith much less trust in the United States due to our leadership.

Dmitry’s words have been both, heard and echoed across the globe, with a nod of agreement felt from other nations.

The rumor is that Trump and Putin are scheduled to meet soon in Buenos Aires, a meeting that is sure to be a tense one.
