North Korea’s Holiday Gift Card to U.S. Comes with a Warning

Kim Jong-un to Resume Long Range Missile Testing?

Cristal M Clark

Well it’s that time of year, you know where one would normally attempt to spread cheer and good will towards all of mankind, but not North Korea, no Kim Jong-un apparently decided to send his romantic former lover Donald Trump a holiday warning, albeit no one is quite sure what that entails, exactly.

kim-jong-un-warns-us-crimeshop

In a statement translated on the state news agency, Ri Thae Song, a first vice minister at the North Korean Foreign Ministry working on US affairs, accused US policy makers of leveraging talks with Kim Jong Un for domestic political gain.

“The dialogue touted by the US is, in essence, nothing but a foolish trick hatched to keep the DPRK bound to dialogue and use it in favor of the political situation and election in the US, it is entirely up to the US what Christmas gift it will select to get.”

trump-mad-at-kim-jong-un-crimeshop.jpg

Not sure about how the rest of you feel about this but it certainly sounds like someone (Donald) is in the dog house.

This is not the first time North Korea has referred to it’s ICBM as a gift for the US, back for July 4th 2017 they test launched an ICBM and referred to that test as a gift for the US.

To be clear talks between the US and North Korea have stalled after all North Korea could resume it’s long-distance missile tests, as we get closer to the country’s self-imposed end-of-year deadline for nuclear negotiations with the Trump administration.

All in all, if the Trump administration did not see this one coming, I am utterly shocked Kim after all has been dropping quite a few hints towards this the past several months.

Trump Impeachment Total Joke? 

Trump-destroys-U.S.-crimeshop

Impeachment Hearings 

Cristal M Clark 

Did anyone watch the impeachment hearings the last two weeks? If you did, like me you found them to be a complete and total predictable bore. Does anyone other than CNN feel they were a waste of time?

The House had been looking into whether Trump improperly pressured the new president of Ukraine to conduct an investigation into potential political rival Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, by holding up military aid and a White House visit.

That’s it huh? 

trump-impeachment-crimeshop.jpeg

So he asked for dirt on a political rival by withholding taxpayer dollars from a country the majority of the US doesn’t want money going to in the first place?

Do you know how political rivals get dirt on each other? 

They pull shit like this, the only difference is that Donald Trump is more in your face about it, he simply does not give AF and chooses to just do it right in front of us.

Just because presidents of the past didn’t get caught doesn’t mean they never did it, in any capacity up to and including withholding aid, blackmail, tariffs, etc. 

I honestly feel like Trump should be scolded for pissing on the carpet and we should all just move on. 

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

And let’s not forget that the majority of American’s are sick of the US supplying foreign aid to any nation while neglecting to dump funds into our own nationwide problems and issues. Trump’s supporters have not ever for one second lost sight of that, in fact I am shocked he did not get a standing ovation over this. 

Aside from all of that does anyone really think the majority of the Senate will vote to impeach? The majority happens to be the Republican Party who has not wavered in its support of our president.  

I don’t always agree with Trump or his policies, his Tweets but honestly this impeachment crap is just garbage. Every politician does it, they just don’t do it as publicly as Donald Trump and the reality since CNN loves doing those daily reality checks is actually pretty simple. 

Donald Trump already knew politicians do things like this, they do it discreetly and privately so as not to get caught and Donald Trump is showing the entire world just how messed up US politics are, he’ll do the same thing someone else has done but he’ll do it right in our faces. 

That is not a crime, supporting his country by withholding aid to anyone for whatever reason he chooses is not a crime, whether or not it is for personal gain, to get dirt on someone, it’s not like he diverting the funds to his own bank account. 

Maybe now that the public hearings are over the mainstream media can find something else to shove down out throats until we can’t breathe until the next thing and so on.

Political Themed Ransomware is Finally Here

Car-Hacking-Crimeshop

Trump and Clinton Ransomware Hits the Internet

Cristal M Clark

I’ve actually been wondering where our political themed ransomware is, like scammers have literally tried everything else right? Well the good news is, political themed ransomware is finally here. 

Cisco Talos Group discovered a payload named Trump.exe meaning that malware developers have finally begun to add some politics in with their malicious payloads.

hacker

Computer hacker or Cyber attack concept background

Cisco Talos found the politically-themed payload while investigating a recent MalSpam campaign, then they decided to look into other malicious programs that contained political references or themes and found hundreds of other examples.

The Talos Group discovered a ransomware called the “Donald Trump Screen of Death,” which is a screen locker. The screen locker attempts to lock users out of Windows while showing them various pictures of President Trump, which gives me daymares honestly. 

They also found a program called the Trump Crypter which is used to obfuscate malware code so that it cannot be detected by security software.

This actually has been going on for just a little while. 

Does anyone remember the “CIA Election AntiCheat Control”  that had been discovered back in 2016, that showed a picture of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump that told victims to send $50 or their vote in the upcoming election wouldn’t count?

Then there’s the harmless program called Dancing Hillary that allowed users to make Hillary Clinton dance.

President Barack Obama’s likeness has sadly also been used by malware developers to create an injector with an Obama theme. This injector can be used to inject malicious code into legitimate processes in an attempt to evade security software.

And because 2020 is an election year, my guess is we are going to start to see a hell of a lot more of this going around.

Smugglers Outsmart Trump’s Border Wall

holes-in-trumps-border-wall-crimeshop

Trump’s Border Wall – A Complete Joke

Cristal M Clark

We’ve sort of seen it all with Trump’s wall, people climbing it, digging under it, stealing parts of it and now, it appears that smugglers have decided, fuck it and are in fact, cutting right through the wall. 

US agents and officials with knowledge of border wall damage are reporting to multiple news outlets that yes, smugglers have been cutting through the steel and concrete portions of the wall, creating openings wide enough for people and drugs to be smuggled through said openings.

trump-cool-with-holes-in-border-wall-crimeshop

What’s really funny is that Trump really does not seem to be bothered by this news, in fact when asked about it, his response was “You can cut through just about anything.” 

borderwall-colorado-crimeshop

Tf? Didn’t he inform the world a couple of weeks ago that he was building a wall in Colorado that you can’t cut, crawl over or dig under? 

The smugglers are utilizing reciprocating saws which can cut through the bollards in a matter of minutes. Taking it a step further, smugglers also try to hide a breach in the barrier, by returning the cut in the bollard to its original position or using a putty that looks like the hole has been fixed, so that they can keep using that opening.

Regardless of being fixed and welding the damaged bollards, smugglers still return to the same spot because the metal and the concrete at the bollards’ cores have already been weakened, making it easier to damage again. 

You sort of have to hand it to the cartels and smugglers for showing us all just how pathetically ridiculous Trump’s ideas for keeping the US safe from illegal imigration and drugs, and  just fail, over and over again.  

And BTW the wall at the southern border and all of it’s fixes are being paid for by us, US taxpayers.

The Kurds Deserved Better

Trump’s Actions Cause Damage That Cannot Be Repaired 

Cristal M Clark 

As it stands, the US in the eyes of the world is not to be trusted. The dangerous game of cat and mouse that Trump just played in an effort to make himself look good so severely damaged our reputation worldwide that it may never truly be repairable.

Trump-syria-turkey-crimeshop

Trump made a rather idiotic promise to his base who clearly did not understand why we had troops in Syria, rather than educate themselves they just clung on to a lack of true understanding. 

Trump-destroys-U.S.-crimeshop

Hence, Trump without a care in the world and a lack of any form of knowledge as to why we had troops in Syria just pulled them out. 

Now he is vowing sanctions and military action, a day late and more than a dollar short, he broke our vow, our word, something so sacred, that millions of people who fight alongside American Soldiers, who depend on the help of our troops to protect them and their families cannot trust the US at her word any longer. 

IMG_2260 - Edited

Trump wanted to ruin the post-WWII global order and isolate America from the rest of the world and one way to accomplish that is to call the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and give him the green light to cross the Syrian border and crush the Kurds…without U.S. resistance. And that has caused more damage than Trump will ever begin to understand. 

Trump wants to create a sort of utopia, one where the US does not have to work with or answer to the worldwide platform, we do not have to play nice, we get our way simply because we are a powerhouse of wealth, dominance and white people. 

What he fails so clearly to understand is that you cannot have that ying without a yang and in doing so, he has endangered the lives of millions. Isis was never done if anyone recalls after all. 

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

Furthermore this shows that Donald Trump is mentally, not well. He has fantasies of grandeur, being some type of superhero, a great untouchable ruler. It reminds me of a stalker I have currently, so the mental frame of mine I know all too well, that manipulative, victim game they play to excuse the obsessive behaviors. 

His illusions are so far from actual reality that it is frightening. 

Now no matter what he does to fix it, our word can no longer be trusted worldwide. 

Trump is simply to mentally unhealthy, unstable and lacks a basic understanding of what it means to be president, he has advisers for a reason yet he refuses to utilize them. 

trump-not-fit-for-office-crimeshop - Edited

His base, is just as dangerous as he is. Some refuse to see the truth others understand the truth yet are so willing to look past it because they want different without really understanding the consequences of that.

And the Kurds who have been so loyal to us, they deserve so much better, so much better.

Former F.B.I. Director Wants an End to the Trump Presidency

US-Hero-James-Comey-Crimeshop

James Comey

Cristal M Clark 

The man a lot of people think caused the Trump presidency is now vowing to help end it. I don’t blame him, I mean you have to be pretty damn stupid to want to continue with more of the Trump show in 2020. 

James-Comey-STop-Trump-CrimeShop

James Comey was never one to want to be thrust into the spotlight however since 2016 he has more often than not found himself squarely in it. He is actually doing quite well despite having been fired, he is actually making more money these days. 

IMG_2260 - Edited

He is also not much of a fan of Donald Trump, nor is Trump of James. Yet James seems to have a calmness about him about it all. He has been watching Trump rip apart every single foundation that made this country and as with most of us, Trump and his ideals, his followers, well those are the things nightmares are made of. Sometimes, even daymares. 

James Comey really doesn’t like having a Twitter account as media reports state, I doubt even Obama loves having one, but the reality is that people need and want them both to have Twitter accounts. Sometimes those of us little people need to be reminded of what real leadership is about so that we do not start to lose faith in a system that has been ravaged, pillaged, raped and torn apart by our current President. 

James-Comey-CrimeShop

Despite the fact that many believe James Comey all but handed Trump the Presidency, James has a huge following. I include myself in that following. The reality is that Trump had already won the Presidency, many of us watched the numbers and wrote about it in the months and weeks leading up to the election. It was an inevitable given. James didn’t do that, I lived in Florida during the election, I heard and spoke with many of his supporters. This year I went to Pennsylvania and spoke to a different breed of his supporters, James Comey did not win him the election. 

James Comey is still a very highly respected man within the FBI, some agents joined the FBI because of that man. When James tweets, it is often powerful and thought provoking. 

Lately it’s been reported that he wants to help ensure that Trump does not see another 4 years in the White House which has been turned into a meth trailer park since Trump’s arrival. 

Yet James is unsure of what to do, feeling helpless. 

Well James, welcome to the club. 

Trump’s base can be divided into two very clear types of individuals, those that do not want the same A-Typical politician type in office believing that career politicians are out of touch with the working class, they do not understand us or our needs etc. 

trump-not-fit-for-office-crimeshop - Edited

The other half are more your white supremacist types. They also however, do not want a career politician in office for the same reason the other side doesn’t yet the white supremacists want to hold back women, blacks, hispanics, and take us back to something like the 1950’s era where white men rule. 

We cannot change any of those individuals, we know that Trump’s base will ignore the truth even when it’s proven and still support him. 

So we need to better understand them instead of simply labeling them and then we need to work those that are running against Trump. 

Those are the people who need to change so that they can effectively change the mind of the voter and gain the trust of all of Trump’s base. 

The other huge advantage for anyone running against Trump has is our younger generations and those that were born in mine. Our sheer numbers outnumber Trump’s base and the majority of us do not agree with his policies, his sexism, racism and we just want a mentally ill, unbalanced and unhinged man sitting in the Oval office. 

The problem is, since Trump got into office people have lost faith in our voting system, younger generations do not fully understand it, how it works, much less how important it is to actually vote. 

We also do not want another old white man in the Oval office, so sorry Joe and Bernie. Many have lost faith in our political world, law enforcement, pretty much that Make America Great Again slogan, is and has been anything but that. 

Our Allies no longer trust us, we don’t even trust us. 

So we need to work with those that are running against Trump, we need them to gain the confidence of the voter and its more than just promising to do this or that. For anyone running against Trump, when they say they are going to change something and promise that in a debate they need to back it up with a clear plan on how they can accomplish whatever it is. 

It’s all so easy to say isn’t it? 

The problem is that the world, the United States are split, we are split here, people are suffering and hurting in ways not a single politician running for office currently has even bothered to address let alone open his or her eyes to actually see. 

Trump-destroys-U.S.-crimeshop

Because they do not understand it, Trump has capitalized on it, he has acknowledged it, forget what you see on CNN and hit one of his rallies, he knows the suffering, he speaks to it, he simply points the cause of it to things like race, immigration, strict EPA laws, holding the wealthy back, and the like. 

He is clever, and he can speak to the suffering in the US in order to gain support. He knows the pain, he feels deeply the  pain and suffering in this country because he actually hears his supporters and can articulate what they are saying back to them in the form of promises that speak to his base. He can blame a problem on something like immigration, and make a promise thus gaining support. 

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

No one currently running is doing that. They are gaining support off of hope and only that. That is not enough because Trump can take that in a matter of seconds. 

So, James Comey what can any of us do here? We want to help and change it, the reality is that we are not running for office and Trump no matter how twisted and fucked up he truly is, he knows how to hear which is different from listening and he knows how to feed into what he hears.

Singapore – Most Competitive Nation in the World

Singapore overtakes US as most competitive country in the world-crimeshop

United States Dethroned for Falling Short

Cristal M Clark 

I guess it was bound to happen sooner rather than later, it seems like all the US wants to be the leader of these days, is the leader of the drama club if you look at the state of our presidency. 

WEF-Crimeshop

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), Singapore has overtaken the U.S. to become the most competitive nation in the world.

Here’s the list of the The 10 most competitive countries in the world

  1. Singapore
  2. United States
  3. Hong Kong 
  4. Netherlands 
  5. Switzerland
  6. Japan
  7. Germany
  8. Sweden 
  9. United Kingdom
  10. Denmark

To get the list, the  WEF measured the strength of 103 key indicators, such as inflation, digital skills and trade tariffs, across 141 countries.

The key indicators in the report were organized into 12 pillars, which included institutions, macroeconomic stability and health.

The United States held the top spot in 2018, we’re still in the game, just not in the A game. The United States received the highest score in the world in several subcategories, including ease of finding skilled employees (that is highly debatable however, I hire people all the time) and venture capital availability, with the United States also being ranked higher than any other country in the business dynamism pillar.

Trump-destroys-U.S.-crimeshop

Here’s where we sucked, trade tariffs (Thanks Donald), declining life expectancy, low digital skills among our overall population, and the WEF said the life expectancy in the United States is now lower than it is in China who didn’t even make the top 10 list. 

Damn. 

Singapore-most-competitive-economy-crimeshop

Singapore scored high for its public sector, labor force, diversity and it’s infrastructure, with its life expectancy ranked number one. In comparison, life expectancy in the U.S. is 66 years old, while in China it’s 68.

I can see that. 

Not surprising overall, Asia-Pacific was named the most competitive region in the world, followed by Europe and North America.

The report came with a warning. 

It warned that most economies were locked in a cycle of low or flat productivity growth. According to the reports authors, nations that have invested in 4 key areas:  human capital, improving their institutions, innovation and “business dynamism” would be best placed to withstand a global slowdown and to revive domestic productivity. However, they warned the effects of a slowdown were likely to be exacerbated by simmering geopolitical tensions.

“The changing geopolitical context and rising trade tensions are fueling uncertainty and could precipitate a slowdown, however, some of this year’s better performers appear to be benefiting from the trade feud through trade diversion.”

And, those countries included Singapore and surprisingly, Vietnam, which BTW was the most improved country in this year’s index in 67th place.

The WEF Urged policymakers to prepare for an evolving economic landscape, and they called on governments to better anticipate and implement the social policies that would be needed to prepare their populations for the 4 industrial revolution.

In case you are wondering, The fourth industrial revolution is the current and currently developing environment in which disruptive technologies and trends like, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) change the way we both  live and work. They either help or fuck shit up depending. 

The report also said that many of the world’s largest and most innovative economies had education systems which were failing to keep up with the pace of innovation, including South Korea, France, China, India and Brazil.

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

As for the United States, we continue to lose our top spots the longer Trump remains in office, leaving many who once looked up to us now scratching their heads wondering if we are in fact the next reality TV show or is this is a nightmare we all might eventually wake up from.

Impeaching Donald Trump

Impeach-Trump-Crimeshop

To Impeach or Not to Impeach

Cristal M Clark 

So here we are again, Trump has gone and done something really stupid again and the news is ablaze with the idea and talk of a renewed effort to finally impeach Trump. 

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

Reports are circulating thanks to a whistleblower, that Trump in a July call pressured Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. Why is this an issue you may be wondering? Well, during that time frame the US was in fact withholding aid to the Ukraine, and after that call, a very short time later, the sought after aid was given. 

Meaning that if the whistleblowers account of what happened is true, Trump may be sailing perilously close to an open window, in his role he is not allowed to pressure another country to provide any information for personal gain, which he did. 

Joseph Maguire-crimeshop

Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson determined that the allegations were credible and of “urgent concern,” yet congress has yet to see the official report against Trump. The acting DNI under Trump, Joseph Maguire, is not allowing the whistleblower’s report to be shared with Congress, regardless of the fact that Congress issued a subpoena for it.  

WTF?!?!?

IS that a fucking joke? So let me get this straight, Trump really could walk down the street and murder someone and Congress wouldn’t be able to do shit about it?

Basically Joseph Maguire is saying something like “look, yes you have a smoking gun but, I am taking the stance that I want to bury my head in the sand and just pretend this isn’t serious so fuck you guys.”

Nancy-Pelosi-crimeshop

So Trumps camp just gave Congress and Pelosi the middle finger whilst also dropping trow and mooning them. 

finger-congress-crimeshop

Kudos. 

Legal experts say they have never heard of a DNI overruling an IG assessment to send a complaint to Congress either. Taking it a step further Legal experts on whistleblower complaints say Joseph Maguire is going too far.

Thank you Captain Obvious.. 

D.C.-based national security lawyer Mark Zaid, “We are seeing not just a politicization but a legalization of the whistleblower process that was never intended to exist. It was not intended that the system would be put under a microscope so that lawyers could derive any type of loophole interpretation, these are the type of cases that are supposed to be broadly interpreted.”

Again, no shit. 

Does anyone remember Edward Snowden?

I do. 

He made the choice not to use the US Government’s Whistleblower channels, this serves as a perfect example of why whistleblowers are better off going to the media rather than what the US Government insists are proper channels. 

The President of the United States can do whatever he wants and Congress takes a back seat and throws their hands in the air and just says “Oh Well.”

No action is taken, nothing is done and to an individual with Trump’s mentality we reinforce this crappie behavior.  

Thank you Congress for kicking every American right in the face by doing nothing but cry to the mainstream media.

Pigeon Shits on Lawmaker Sending Message Suggesting Lawmaker Shut It

Pigeon Poop Station – Chicago

As it turns out, Pigeon’s don’t dig it when you talk smack about them shitting everywhere.

Democratic state Rep. Jaime Andrade-crimeshop

Democratic state Rep. Jaime Andrade was discussing the problem of pigeon shit everywhere in Chicago’s poop station with a reporter when a pigeon overheard and took offense thus doing a fly by and shitting on said lawmaker, “Oh, did I just get… No, I didn’t… I did, didn’t I? I got a little bit,” after feeling the bird shit on his head. “I’ll just have to go clean up. … That’s what happens to my constituents. They get shit on all time.” 

idiot-trump-promises-revenge-crimeshop

I’m surprised Trump hasn’t been delightfully tweeting about this or maybe he and the offending pigeon are partners in crime? 

Rep Jamie Andrade has been attempting to address the situation at the station by suggesting things like installing a hose line for power washing because the sidewalks are literally covered in pigeon shit and feathers, which could if left unchecked can cause a health hazard. 

In cases you’d like to visit, poop station is a Chicago Transit Authority stop located at Irving Park Blue Line station.

Just be sure to take an umbrella.
