China Preparing for Possible High-Profile Hacks?

China_hack_crimeshop

NSA Seems to Think So

rob-joyce-nsa-crimeshop.jpeg

Rob Joyce an official at the NSA seems to think that China is getting ready for some possible high-profile hacks, at least that is what he is telling the Wall Street Journal.  

china-hackers-breach-marriott_crimeshop

According to Rob, thus far China has focused it’s hacks on stealing trade secrets and spying which Rob could not be more wrong about by the way.

power-grid-cyber-attack-crimeshop

The suspicion is that China prepositioning itself to attack “critical infrastructure” such as energy, health care, finance and transportation.  

cyber-attack-us-infrastructure-crimeshop.jpg

What makes this a rather curious situation for the NSA – as far as the US Government is concerned this is simply just speculation, they have no proof of this – at all.

China has always denied conducting any hacking attempts, and the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Geng Shuang said to the NYT that: “China firmly opposes all forms of cyberattack and cracks down on it in accordance with the law.”

cyber-attack-us-Crimeshop

China by the way, as recently reported, the preliminary investigation results into the Marriott/Starwood hacking incident suggests it was in fact part of a Chinese intelligence operation.

hacking-US-Government-crimeshop

In all honesty the NSA is not so far off the mark in it’s suspicion of China.

However, the NSA is wrong to think China is merely prepositioning itself. China as well as other countries are already in a position to attack our “critical Infrastructure.”

While US leadership was asleep at the wheel other nations have had years to “preposition” themselves for a major cyberattack on the US and they are in fact already in a position for a major cyber attack on the US “critical infrastructure.”

Come now, nobody really believes that all of these hacks and cyber attacks were done just to merely siphon trade secrets and just simply to spy do you?

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.

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.

Vladimir Putin Loses Sight

shirtless-putin-hunting-crimeshop

Russians – Once for Putin, Want him Out.

 

Sometimes actually; more often than not great leaders tend to bite off way more than they themselves can actually chew.

They make promises they either had no intention of ever keeping or simply never took the time to see the bigger picture and are forced to renege on a promise  that they made to supporters.

Today, no one knows that better than Vladimir Putin.  

He has lost his view of his voters.  

Russia Putin

Here we are today with Vladimir Putin, who very well could have won the US presidential Election of 2016.

Polls showed that with zero doubt, if Putin had been able to run, American’s would have voted him into office by more numbers than anyone could keep up with over Hillary or Donald.

Russian President Vladimir Putin once, not too long ago, 2005 I believe vowed live on television, to Russians that he would never, ever raise their retirement age.

In all fairness that was back in 2005, and as of today, 10/3/2018,  well, he has raised the age of retirement age for Russian workers and broke the promise that he made not so long ago to his people.

putin-2019-calendar-crimeshop

Perhaps it was an uneducated promise, or perhaps he was too busy doing photo shoots, meddling in the US presidential election, sleeping with China, Iran, North and South Korea, Syria…

While Putin’s approval rating in Russia is falling and this appears to be rather catastrophic for Vladimir, the worst is that it has hurt, and I mean deeply hurt Vladimir’s public image.

putin-man-of-the-year-time-magazine-crimeshop

Something he cares more about than ratings, money, women, other countries.

His public image matters to him more than anything in this entire world.

While other news outlets are reporting that he has no plan to fix the situation, I am willing to venture a bet that he does, in fact,  have a plan to fix things, at least up to a point where it will fix his beloved public image.

The one thing he cannot stand losing.

CDC Greets Plane Full of Ill Passengers

CDC-Logo-crimeshop

Dubia – New York – The Walking Dead Maybe?

 

Did any other Walking Dead fans see a headline yesterday about Emirates Flight EK 203 and feel that fluttering of hope from deep within?

Walking-dead-CrimeShop.jpg

How many of you thought to yourselves “Thank God the Zombie apocalypse is finally here, Trump is gong to be eaten by a staffer.”

the-Walking-Dead_crimeshop.jpg

It would be a welcome relief for thousands of Americans because a zombie apocalypse is a step up from the presidency in this country.

billboard-trump-idiot-crimeshop

Of course, knowing our illustrious President, he would find a way to capitalize on a zombie apocalypse and pat himself on the back through Twitter.

dumb-trump-crimeshop

Trump tweeting prior to acknowledging a zombie apocalypse;

Trump: “My fellow Americans, trust me when I say this, no plane full of sick passengers and crew ever came to America, there is no zombie apocalypse.’

‘That is fake news, which I think we can all agree on, has to go. It is clear collusion between Robert Mueller, some anonymous source within the White House, Russia, China, Iran, Syria, pretty much a lot of the Middle East like that ISIS. Others involved, North Korea, Colin Kaepernick, Nike, James Comey, Obama and Hillary Clinton, who are all people that are out to get me as I have proven many times before. They are trying to cause chaos and fear in America to divide us, to try to distract us all from what’s really happening, real news, like how I am making America great again.”

Trump: “Yes a plane full of sick passengers did arrive from the Emirates, but it is fake news that the CDC does not know the cause. Folks trust me, I mean really trust me when I say this, the entire flight, all of the crew and passengers became violently ill upon learning that Jeff Sessions has not done his job since day one of heading the department of Justice.”

idiot-Donald-Trump-CrimeShop

Trump’s tweets after deciding to capitalize on the zombie apocalypse;

Trump: “I know some of you think Zombies are a bad thing but I gotta tell you this my fellow American’s, they all agree that I am the best president that the United States has ever had, I am doing more for the zombies and non zombies than any president has previously done for anyone, ever.”

Trump: “Speaking of fake news, the zombies believe that any news about Russian collusion and the 2016 election, Bob Woodward’s book, all those Omarosa recordings are fake news and I think we can all agree that fake news needs to go away, it just has to go we need to start directing the zombies to all fake news media outlets like CNN and let them send a clear message that America will not stand for any more fake news.”

Trump: “Make America Great Again and folks that is just what I have done here. This zombie apocalypse is just what America needed. I have created more jobs in America than any president previously has by creating jobs for the zombies.”

Trump: “Zombies don’t even ask for paychecks, we just toss them a journalist or someone who doesn’t support me, like Jeff Sessions and they eat them. I have created more jobs for the zombies than any other president ever could, and these zombies’ folks don’t even want housing so because of me the cost of housing is going to go down in record number and because of all of that, I have made America great again! No other president can say that, they just cannot say that!”

Trump: “At least the zombies have a real excuse for not kneeling for the National Anthem, like a rotting limb could become detached from the body and also because of the zombie apocalypse the zombies and I agree that they don’t need shoes so for all those folks planning to burn your Nike gear, you no longer have to because of zombies and me Nike sales are going to drop drastically.”

uae-plane-from-dubia-sick-passengers-crimeshop.jpg

All joking aside Emirates Flight EK 203 from Dubai landed in New York yesterday and was in fact greeted by health officials along with local authorities because passengers and the crew had fallen ill during the flight.

Basically, a plane full of sick people is cause for national concern and it is treated as such, except for, well I guess those guys over at the CDC don’t watch much of the Walking Dead.

the-walking-dead-crimeshop

11 out of 549 individuals went to the hospital and those 11 are still in the hospital. The remaining passengers and crew were allowed to carry on to their respective destinations.

The CDC is still investigating at the time of writing this to see what made everyone sick but as it were have determined that it is not communicable at this juncture.

Rest assured my Walking Dead Fellow Fans/And Fellow Anti Trump fans, we may still see a zombie apocalypse given that the CDC has not yet determined what is going on if anything. So, we may yet get a break from the likes of Donald Trump.

Fingers crossed.

Syria Readies to Launch Major Attack

syria-ready-for-war-crimeshop

France, US and UN Warn Syria

France, the US and the UN have all recently warned Syria that should they launch the planned major attack on Idlib it would be cause for disastrous consequences.

Idlib is the last major area that is being held by rebels and Syria is aiming to take it.

putin-assad-syria-crimeshop

Standing alongside Syria is Russia. Alongside Russia is Iran, then China lastly North Korea and with South Korea warming to North Korea these days, it appears that some major lines are being drawn into the sand.

The catastrophe could harm up to 3 million civilians.

Syria is known for utilizing chemical weapons and the US has gotten word of the factories in Syria where the weapons are made. The US is ready to launch an airstrike should Syria attack the rebel stronghold, which could potentially be just as disastrous.

trump-syria-crimeshop

Chemical weapons factories are no laughing matter and should be handled with extreme caution because quite simply put, we have no idea what is really inside and launching a missile attack puts those chemicals into our environment, our air, the ozone.

Until the sects of Islam find a way for peaceful cohabitation, the middle east will continue to be a mess because peace cannot be forced.

Kim Jong-un – Message to America

No Deal – Trump’s Tall Tale

 

Kim Jong-un is one feisty little man, isn’t he? He has recently begun to do everything in his power to ensure that the world is fully aware that the deal according to Trump, that was struck between the US and North Korea, well maybe never was.

prime-minister-shinzo-abe-crimeshop

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the Tokyo government reaffirmed Tuesday that North Korea posed a “grave and imminent” threat to Japan, despite Kim’s pledge on denuclearization.

president-moon-crimeshop

The South Korean president will be visiting North Korea next month and it appears that both China and South Korea along with Russia although rarely mentioned are beginning to outwardly side with North Korea.

putin-china-crimeshop

South Korea in fact is planning on building a new liaison office in North Korea which means that the parties intend on regular and consistent communications with one another.

mike-pompeo-crimeshop

Mike Pompeo’s trip to North Korea was called off due to a warning letter that had been sent to the US.

In it, the letter blamed the U.S.’s reluctance to advance discussions about a peace treaty and senior North Korean officials warned that talks were “again at stake and may fall apart.”

So, what does all of this mean?

idiot-trump-crimeshop

The reality is that the US never really had a set-in stone solid deal with North Korea and to Kim’s credit all he had to do was sit around and watch Trump destroy established relationships with other foreign leaders.

In turn, that gave Kim the advantage he desired and needed.

Powerful allies.

Putin and Trump – Time to Break Up?

Moscow-Capital-city-of-Russia-crimeshop.jpeg

Russia To Donald Trump – “We Really Don’t Support Your Sanctions”

 

Is anyone else getting the vibe that the Bromance between Putin and Trump is a lot like watching a Novella? You really don’t know if they have kissed and made up before watching as yet another dramatic argument unfolds.

putin-trump-bromance-crimeshop.jpeg

Maybe they should just agree to call it quits and break up the love affair, quite frankly, Putin could do better anyway.

putin-angry-crimeshop

So far this week Russia has slammed the US over the sanctions against Iran and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia would consider any US move to curb the operations of Russian banks or their foreign currency dealings a declaration of economic war.

This past Wednesday the US announced a new round of sanctions targeting Russia that seemingly did not sit very well with Russia.

Russia-Iran-crimeshop

Earlier in the week, Putin and his Russia noted that while the US may have reimposed sanctions against Iran after walking away from the 2015 nuclear deal, Russia announced that they would remain part of the accord and protect its economic relationship with Iran.

A pretty wise move personally.

That of course pissed the Don off and his response was that anyone doing business with Iran would not be doing business with the US.

So, as you can once again see here, Donald and Putin have once again found themselves in a lover’s quarrel.

This not a game Trump is going to win, sure he wants his empire to rise but his stupidity is only going to serve as the means to watch it fall.

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.
