ISIS Offers To Assassinate Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin

ISIS Supporters Feeling Left Out – Vow New Attacks on America and Russia

 

Well, it looks like ISIS is feeling left out with all of the recent talk of hurricanes, Russian Hacking, fake news, North Korea, the Iran Nuclear deal and Trump’s ill advised, ridiculous tweets and open attacks on the US media.

 

ISIS-CrimeShop

 

Rather than easing themselves back into the game of war and talk of destruction and attacks, they just went for the gold and threatened to assassinate both Trump and Putin.

 

ISIS-Trump-Putin-CrimeShop

 

In the newly released propaganda image they decided to show off bullet ridden photos of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, then took it a step over the top and invited its followers to stage more attacks on the United States, Trump, Russia and Putin.

“Lie in wait for them at every chance to ambush.”

 

Obama-CrimeShop

 

Here’s the kicker, ISIS was using Obama’s image until a few months back, they didn’t even bother to acknowledge Trump as the President of the United States until just recently.

I’m guessing ISIS most likely thought Trump becoming President of the United States was just more bad American TV and far from actual reality.

And to be fair, it is an easy mistake to make here, has anyone sat down and read a lot of Trump’s tweets, seen the guy on TV, at News Conference, speaking?!?!?!?

It took time to actually sink in so it took them time to believe the gravity of the situation here.

ISIS has also just recently claimed to have been behind the shooting in Las Vegas. Last week ISIS claimed that Steven Paddock converted to Islam roughly 6 months ago, a claim federal agents are having a hard time finding any evidence of.

The reality is that ISIS has been losing ground for a while here and it looks like they want back into the game but they are having a hard time actually getting themselves back into the game full force if you will.

 

ct-trump-north-korea-nuclear-war-crimeshop

 

Unlike threats coming from North Korea, ISIS is not as easy to just take care of. They are the perfect example of cutting the head of the snake and watching the body keep going.

Clearly, ISIS is not bright enough to have figured out that they really do not want to dance with Trump here.

Maybe they do not have TV, they can’t get on social media, they don’t read or watch news from anywhere in the world.

If they did,  they would have seen that Trump is a little on the crazy side. And by a little, I really mean a lot.  

America has enough problems with just Trump alone, he not the guy to threaten because Trump is not afraid to take to Twitter and start name calling, insulting ISIS and making threats towards ISIS.

On the other hand, American intelligence should be paying close attention to the latest threat coming out of ISIS and any of it’s supporters.

ISIS very well could be smart enough to have figured out the lack of support Trump has from American’s at this juncture.

It looks a lot like they are attempting to build an army from the inside by capitalizing on individuals who loath Trump and who are disturbed enough to take action.

Kim Jong-Un’s Mental State Finally Called into Question?

Kim-Jong-Un-CrimeShop

North Korea – Kim Jong-Un

 

Not sure if anyone caught some the recent headlines the past couple of days with regards to Kim Jong-Un’s mental frame of mind.

If not, I guess some have questioned it which is odd to me but whatever.

 

Insane - Donald- Trump-CrimeShop

 

We all know that he and Trump are loose cannons, yet while I do question at times Trump’s frame of mind, I have never doubted that Kim is clear, concise and making moves that would ensure that his legacy lives on and thrives.

 

north-korea-nuclear-war-crimeshop

 

At any rate, the CIA felt compelled to chime in on the subject recently stating:

“”Waking up one morning and deciding he wants to nuke, he wants to rule for a long time and die peacefully in his own bed.”

I would tend to agree with that as I have pretty much said it before. North Korea is not and will not strike first unless they are provoked enough into doing that.

Which is why they have subtly at times attempted to provoke others into starting a war. For  North Korea, starting a war with America or any of her allies is suicide and North Korea is fully aware of that.

 

Seoul-North-Korea-fires-missile-from-Pyongyang-CrimeShop

 

So the reality is they will continue to test missiles and cause fear among everyone. It is after all one of the most basic rules of war, make others believe that you are more powerful than you truly are.

It’s all about instilling fear here.

North Korea also poses a significant cyber threat to America which is not something you see in the news often. North Korea has a second internet link from (it’s not China), TransTeleCom, a state owned provider from Russia.

 

DDoS-Attack-crimeshop.jpg

 

In fact the US attempted a pretty big DDoS attack on North Korea recently and Russia gave them more bandwidth so as to help cope with that.

The funniest part of that news is that, the contract between North Korea and TransTeleCom was put together and signed off on a few years back.

While some do not really think much of that, the reality is, if you are a sane ruler making intellectual decisions and long term goals…it would make sense to get a contract in place prior to pissing off the entire world with talk and threats of nuclear devastation.

I guess DDoS attacks are legal and perfectly okay when it is the United States Government launching such an attack on another country…just don’t try to launch one on the United States because then you become a criminal or a nation who has committed a crime against the United States.  

 

Russia-fake-social-media-crimeShop

 

No one should be surprised by Russia here either, they do after all like to play all of the sides.

As for Kim, he’s like a child in some aspects where he is testing the waters, pushing buttons, seeing how far he can take things before it’s taken too far in an attempt to get what he really wants.

It will be interesting to see how it eventually plays out here because in the long run, while I believe that Kim is not some delusional murderous maniac, I do not believe that he really understands what playing with fire is like.

That fire just so happens to be Donald Trump and Trump is at times more irrational than a two year old whose blankie is in the dryer.

Russia Successful at Dividing America?

russia-fake-social-media-CrimeShop.jpg

Russia – Serves up The Perfect Election Weapon

I continue to see these headlines with regards to Russia dividing Americans through fake social media accounts.

us-election-russia-hack-crimeshop

This morning CNN went on and on about the social media account that was found on both Twitter and Facebook under the name of “Blacktivist” which CNN dubbed a fake “black” activist account.

Okay fair enough however, when using words to describes things such as “black” or “white” you are by default stirring that social tension pot. Why not simply say something along the lines of “We found this activist site that the Russian’s created so as to cause even more racial tension and divide with regards to law enforcement here in america.”

See how much more classy that sounds?

While I don’t doubt that Russia did create that particular account, what caused the problem is still the problem. The media describes the fake account as a “black” activist account.

It’s a fake activist account. End of story. Viewers could clearly see what the accounts were when CNN posted images of the accounts posts.

america-the-divided-crimeshop

We were already a nation that was divided though and CNN should probably check its facts before skirting them and making it sound as if Russia really made the racial divide here in america worse.

It was already a boiling pot that was going to boil over on it’s own at any moment.

We already had racial tensions brewing with even more tensions brewing where law enforcement was concerned.

russia-kremlin-crimeshop

All Russia did was capitalize on our nation’s problems in order to gain more knowledge about us and where our heads were.

And by problems, it was all that, we all advertised, whether it was the mainstream media or individuals on social media posting things, we all advertised precisely what Russia exposed and capitalized on during the election.

russia-tampers-with-us-election-crimeshop

I also keep hearing this, particularly on CNN, “how did they know who to target?”

This morning was another spit out my coffee or choke laughing moment. A reporter on CNN asked a guest something to the effect of, “How did they know who to target, was it perhaps one of those calls placed to you where you were asked who they could market something like this to?”

CNN, the sky did not fall here, do you guys even read or watch the news at all? Do you even know what you are reporting on, on a daily basis or do you block that from your fragile egos, I mean minds at the end of the day and forget about it?

social-media-policing-crimeshop

What’s more, do you go onto social media at all?

Does CNN or any other media outlet actually pay attention to things other than themselves?

It is not rocket it science here.

mainstream_media_crimeshop.jpg

Russia knew who to target and what parts of the country in large part no thanks to mainstream media, second to that by actually looking at what people post from around this country on social media sites, including Reddit where anyone can read all of the forums without having to create an actual account and friend or follow someone.

Social Media Logotype Background

I wrote about this two nights ago, Russia knew who to target because here in america, we american’s expose our own secrets to everyone through social media, the mainstream media reports on speculation and opinion as if they were fact and they ask people really personal information and/or learn that really personal information and expose it. 

Really CNN, how do you think they figured out who to target. I’ve never heard a more ridiculous question being asked over and over again, in my life.

Nothing in the news is really news these days, so while CNN said over and over again this morning too, “you can’t get your news from social media”, the last time I checked, we couldn’t get our news from CNN either.

I heard over 45 minutes of pretty much speculation this morning, the guests to CNN? CNN was asking hypothetical questions and interjecting their own opinions, and nothing really got answered, what I did not hear a lot of was actual factual news aside from Puerto Rico, yet still the CNN anchors filled those moments with speculative questions that tend to go unanswered which leaves viewers to speculate further and then rumors start…

Russia didn’t make shit up here, they simply exposed the worst of each of us and utilized that to their advantage.

All of the fake ad’s, the fake news, the activist accounts, they were all based off of actual facts, things that were already happening here in america, things that people were already talking about, speculating about and in some cases spreading rumors as fact about.

Russia was able to figure out, which was not a secret CNN, nor was it a secret, that american’s were already divided, they used that division among us in order to sway the election.

But was that really the only goal?

Not by a long shot.

Russia was able to expose america truly expose our every weakness from the inside out, to the world.

Modern Keyboard With Colored Social Network Buttons.

People post and share everything across multiple social media accounts, we overshare information, we discuss openly our true feelings on forums where we never have to meet the other people we are chatting with. You never know who is on the other end.

mainstream-media-crimeshop

The media has overplayed the fact that we have all of this racial division, police shooting unarmed young individuals and beating them and the media were the one’s that drilled into our heads the very idea of the wording “Unarmed, young black man.” the media also overplayed the drug epidemics that are sweeping our nation, doctors prescribing opiods like skittles, impoverished parts of our own country that we ignore while at the same time looking down our noses at for instance impoverished nations such as North Korea, the cost of living in some housing markets is so high that people have to share studio apartments with multiple people, where is big brother helping on that one? Oh wait, they are more concerned with access to Americans private email, cell phones and private data, access to social media accounts…go see Russia because they were able to obtain that, am I right? Health care in this nation is a complete and utter joke, our politicians take advantage of the system far more than any citizen, the rich get away with murder while the poor suffer the consequences 3x’s over for a simple shoplifting, you get the point, as the list could go on for days.

Thanks mainstream media, I was paying attention…but I wasn’t the only one or so it would appear. The media in this country tends to turn the news into something that it was never intended to be, entertainment. Everything is a huge, dramatic story that plays out for days on end.

We were an open book and the media played a much bigger role in that than they desire to admit, however along with that, each of us who are on social media, forums of any kind and the like bare some of that blame as well because we too overexposed our true feelings, our problems in this nation, and how we felt about those problems. Speculation, rumor and fact, we let it all out and really did kid ourselves into thinking that no one was paying attention, or at the least, that no one would ever think to use it against us.

And, if you were to push, dig and try to learn more, you might learn that the election was not the only goal here.

Our intelligence agencies should at the very least know that. Russia is far from finished here.

Russia-fake-social-media-crimeShop

Russia ladies and gentlemen, really just used what was going on here in a truly remarkable way and bitch slapped us with it, and hard.

Russia created and deployed the most unexpected weapon that has ever been created and with expert precision, they used it against us, even though we were one mass of multiple moving targets.  

They didn’t kill a single soul in the process. They didn’t have to.

Vladimir Putin

It was pure genius.

The other night I said that Russia couldn’t have done it any better, and that is hands down fact.

Russia to America – We Know Your Citizens Better Than Your Government Does

facebook-mark-zuckerberg-russia-sponsored-ads-crimeshop.jpg

Mark Zuckerberg & his Facebook Russian Troll Farm Woes

 

Does anyone remember last year when Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg vowed to put an end to fake news on Facebook? I do, but as a woman one might expect that, always bringing up the good old days to toss it back in your face, at just the right moment.

Vladimir Putin

 

Perhaps Mark should have been more focused on all of those accounts that they identified on 9/6/17, that appeared to have had $100,000 in ad spending (the number could be much higher) from June of 2015 to May of 2017 that in fact, violated its policies, and were found to be linked to a Russian trolling farm…that was backed by the Russian Government.

mark-zuckerberg_crimeshop.jpg

 

Bravo Mark…bravo.

So now Mark seems a wee bit lost here, he went from full on denial to being open to “reviewing” proposed legislation should it pique his subtle interest.

Overall, Facebook had several opportunities to catch this and deal with it, long before it made headline news, like back in 2015.

The problems were:

Blatant Denial

Lack of Staff

Searching for any type of related ads

Taking our then President a bit more seriously

Having the ability to suck it up and take the blame gracefully

Stop blaming automated algorithms (Facebook’s favorite scapegoat), and just suck it up and take responsibility

 

facebook-crimeshop.jpg

 

Many are wondering and asking how Russia figured out who to target with these ads?

 

Social Media Logotype Background

 

Well, that is actually a pretty easy one. Russia, they knew what the average american dreamed of and wanted in terms of the perfect balance of its government and it’s people.

 

crimeshop_Social Media.jpg

 

We could spend all day and night trying to guess as to how they knew that, but the honest truth is, has anyone taken a walk through social media lately?

It’s an open book into what american’s think, feel, how we live, what we want, what we desire, our hopes, dreams, information about our interpersonal relationships, how we feel about our jobs, and how we feel about our government, what we would like to see it doing.

What we dislike about the government, a candidate, what we speculate, the rumor mill…you name it, I could go all day with this list.

The point is, that if I can see that within the first 5 minutes of being on any social media account that I have, so can everyone else, and it matters very little who you friend, block, unfriend. Things are shared whether you like it or not.

And let us not forget our own media here in the US, they tend to spread as much misinformation as they possibly can, rarely do a correction story, bring on “experts” to talk about what they think is going on and in general, report speculation and opinion as if they were facts.

It would not have taken much or long for the Russian’s to figure out just what type of fake news or ad’s it sponsored much less who to target.

All of that said, it does not negate the fact that people do not buy into what they do not believe or want to believe.

So many bought into the fake news and all of those fake ad’s because deep down, it was truly something they wanted to believe in.

You cannot package it any better than Russia did here.

They knew the American people better than our own government did at the time and I am willing to bet, that they still do.

Kremlin Bomb Threats – Spread Across Russia

bomb+threats-Russia-CrimeShop.JPG

Russia – Over 45,000 Evacuated

In sort of a rather odd twist of fate, news reports coming out of Russia seem to indicate that Russia has been experiencing a wave of bomb threats the past few days that have resulted in over 45,000 individuals being evacuated from over 200 buildings, in 29 Russian cities.

russia-kremlin-crimeshop

Some suspect that it is either foreign interference or a domestic anti-terror drill.

Today, 15,000 were evacuated from various buildings across Moscow after bomb threat calls were made to 12 shopping centers, 3 train stations and at least 4 universities.

red-square-Russia-CrimeShop

The calls are being made over the internet, which makes them very difficult to trace. It’s been reported that the callers will call into emergency services, name multiple locations and tell emergency services those locations have explosive devices inside.

Of course Russian officials who have searched each location after the calls, have come up empty handed.

It has also been reported that an anonymous source in the law enforcement have told the media that mass evacuations were prompted by a spam attack “masterminded from abroad.”

While several regional news outlets have quoted unidentified military officials who seem to think that the evacuations are part of a Russian anti-terror exercise, performed in preparation for the 2018 World Cup.

Frants Klintsevich, Deputy Head of the Defense Committee said in a phone interview that “There’s never been anything like this before, it’s 100% telephone terrorism. The only goal is to set off destructive processes to sow panic.”

That or, people get so used to them or tired of them that they begin to ignore them…which is not good.

At any rate, several cities in Russia are investigating the calls as “knowingly false reports of terrorist acts,” a criminal offense in Russia that is punishable by up to 3 years in prison.

This is pretty typical Russia for you, conduct these anti-terrorism drills, but do not tell local authorities or citizens so we can test our own systems.

Then again, it could also very well be some group conducting some tests for a future potential attack somewhere in mother Russia.

That also makes sense if you are part of a terrorist organization, do the legwork upfront and look for systematic breakdowns and weaknesses.

Then exploit those breakdowns and weaknesses through a terrorist attack while also having the benefit of having called in so many fake bomb threats, that the citizens wherever the attack might occur, are more likely to blow off and ignore an actual bomb threat.

We may never really know what is behind the mass bomb threats throughout Russia because officials in Russia can’t even seem to agree where the calls are stemming from or why.

G-20 Summit – USA Gives Up World Leadership

G-20-Summit-Crime-Shop.jpeg

China and Germany – look to take the torch from the U.S.  

It’s been rumored that the US has pretty much retired from world leadership since the day that Donald Trump took office.

Putin-Trolls-Donald-Trump-Crime- Shop

And with each passing day, it does look more and more like that is, in fact the case.

Before we get into the nitty, gritty let’s back up to before Trump was inaugurated into office shall we and do a slow waltz.

Many of us out here in the real world warned everyone, that if Trump did not mend his childish ways he would end up an embarrassment to the US Presidency and make the United States a country the world once looked up to, a laughing stock.

This years G-20 Summit is yet another shining example of Donald Trump’s inability to actually lead a nation like a leader should rather than behave like a petulant child. The only difference is that instead of stomping his feet, screaming and crying, he is having his tantrum the adult way by, sending barbaric tweets in an effort to insult those that he dislikes or disagrees with, tweets that are at times strewn together with misinformation instead of facts.

Both China and Germany have already moved into to position to take the beloved torch and run with it at this years G-20 Summit. For those of you that do not already know this, The U.S. traditionally takes point in the search for common approaches to the big global issues of the day at G-20 summits.

Let’s just say, that China and Germany are basically being moved ahead in the line to take the torch because the Trump Presidency has been accused of dropping the said torch since Trump was inaugurated.

And speaking of dropping the torch, ball, the U.S. Presidency…

To make matters worse, in a recently released Pew Research report, 37 countries were asked if they had favorable views of our newly elected President and if they trusted him to do the right thing with regards to world affairs.

contries-don't-trust-trump-crime-Shop

The answer although not shocking, is really, really bad. Trump is losing ground, ground he is not going to win back anytime soon.

In all but 2 countries the overall feeling of President Donald Trump is a thumbs down. With Countries losing confidence in the United States and her President at an alarming rate.

The 2 countries that do however favor Trump:

Israel and well you might have already guessed this one:

putin-trolls-james-comey-toasts-crime-shop

Russia.

4th-of-july-fireworks-Denver-Crime-Shop

So as we head into the Celebration of the Declaration of Independence I’m left with one question, does Donald Trump in anyway represent the ideals this once great country was about? Does he really represent America or just himself and his selfish ego?

I’m wondering how many more times and he will drop the proverbial ball and still remain in office?  

It is only a matter of time after all, he will eventually drop that ball on the wrong person, country or in the wrong way and eventually he will end up in his own web of deceit.

Take for instance the bit about not having tapes of between he and James Comey…can you really trust his word? Comey may well have given up the fight knowing that even if he did have tapes, Trump very well would have destroyed them…if I was like Trump, I would and then dare the guy coming after me.

Kaspersky investigator arrested for treason 

kaspersky-lab-crimeshop

Russia – Kaspersky Labs

Personally this move did not come as a total surprise to me at all. Russia has arrested a top level investigator one Ruslan Stoyanov who happened to be head of computer incidents investigations unit with the Kaspersky cybersecurity firm.

ruslan-crimeshop

What’s more is that Russia has charged Ruslan with treason although they are not kissing and telling us exactly why they up and arrested him for treason.

Ruslan at one time had been involved in some pretty big arrests pertaining to cybercriminals in Russia.

The details are at best pretty sketchy, Ruslan was arrested alongside one Sergei Mikhailov. Sergei as it so happens did not work for Kaspersky, instead he worked for the FSB.

The FSB is better known as The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation and it is the principal security agency of Russia.  

The arrests by the way did not just happen. They happened in December or so I am told.  

Investigators are examining money that Ruslan allegedly received from foreign companies or entities which looks a lot like someone might be in the habit of procuring and selling intel and more specifically, working with foreign states.

Which happens to be why I am not surprised by this turn of events.  It is not far fetched that someone working on the inside, particularly with Ruslan’s resume in terms of having worked for Kaspersky but also for the Moscow Cyber Crime Unit at the Russian Interior Ministry, to buy, sell or trade intel, become a hacker or hire hackers and work with foreign states.

This move has left many feeling the arrest of Ruslan to be unprecedented. Arrests for Treason by the way are nothing new in Russia. Many see this particular arrest however, as the destruction of Government relationships with firms like Kaspersky.

Then again, the arrest could be a move in order to drive home a point to the cybersecurity world.

Only time will tell on this one.

Russia Admits Hacking the GOP?

hacking-crimeshop.jpg

Russia – hacking – RNC

No Russia did not admit to hacking anything here in america and they’d really like for america to stop accusing them of it. 

Vladimir Putin-Crimeshop.jpg

It’s enough already…

To be honest, I am kind of with them on this one.

Truthfully, I am still only seeing lip service provided by intelligence officials here in america. I have not seen any tangible proof of all of this Russian hacking that went on.

And do know that the NSA is pretty keen to Russian hacking, they’ve seen it and studied it before so they’d be able to catch it…still though.

These hackers released intel in an attempt to sway public opinion with regards to the 2016 US Presidential Election and I agree with that.

That’s per our intelligence here in the US. But do they really know for a fact that was Russia and not an insider instead?

Did it really sway public opinion all that much? Even if it did none of what was released was a threat to national security and it was all true.

What’s more is that officially, election numbers after votes were cast were not hacked and changed in any way.

I know that I like being informed about the person that I am going to vote for and if he or she is dishonest or the party they are part of is dishonest I’d like to know that.

I am an American Citizen, I have a right to full disclosure about the person and his or her party when I am casting my vote.

Whether or not political organizations like it.

But to see Russia get all of this blame is getting rather old. It may or may not have been Russia, either way our own intelligence communities and military have done the very same thing to other nations and countries.

Either way, here in the US our mainstream media and our own government need to start moving away from this ugly, very public blatant way in which they accused another country of something before they actually had any proof at all.

And then the very public threats of punishing Russia, it has just gotten to be so childish.

We expect more from our leaders and intelligence communities tasked with handling these types of investigations. IF you have to punish another country because they hacked into your political systems then do it and do it quietly.

Because our government has made this so public it has made me question more than once if they aren’t just full of it and blaming the wrong party here?

russian-hacker-attack-crimeshop

This Russian hacking or just someone hacking nonsense was just not handled very well by our government or our media.

At the end of the day, Donald Trump did not win because of Russian hackers, he won because he is Donald Trump and voters felt that he could be trusted more and that he was capable of doing the job.  

The last thing, the very last thing that any country should be doing is broadcasting to the world about just how vulnerable and unprotected your country really is when it comes to cyber security.

Vladimir Putin, Edward Snowden, the nuclear arms race and IKEA

IKEA-CrimeShop.jpg

Edward Snowden –  Russia- United States of America

Some of today’s headlines read:

Trump and Putin agree: Let’s revive the nuclear arms race – The Washington Post

Russia Gives US cold shoulder saying relations between countries ‘frozen’ – CNN

Congress: Snowden is in contact with Russian intelligence – CBSNews

I could go on here but to be honest, all of the articles were about the same.

The Washington Post aside because they actually did a decent job of reporting on the revival of the nuclear arms race, the majority of the rest of the headlines I saw were more about fear mongering and how Edward Snowden is a traitor and must die…

edward-snowden-the-crime-shop

First things first, Congress and US intelligence have absolutely zero proof to back up any claim that Edward Snowden is in contact with any intelligence agency or state sponsored hackers whatsoever, much less Russian intelligence.

Even if he was in touch with Russian intelligence, I am more than positive that he couldn’t possibly be giving them intel that they don’t already have access to or could get access to since Russia seems to employ every single decent hacker in the world these days…at least according to how it’s reported by our Government and our Media here in the US.

If you follow Edward Snowden on Twitter, you may have noticed his tweets today in response to the release of the HPSCI report that was released today, in an attempt to discredit Edward Snowden of course.

Edward Snowden tweeted:

“Sad result of the government’s misguided war on whistleblowers: it undermines the credibility of US Intelligence at a time we badly need it.”

And I couldn’t agree more with what he said.

Edward Snowden is a whistleblower, that is in black and white.

Edward could have tried to use the US Government’s whistleblower channels but the reality is that the United States Government has a pretty long history of not protecting whistleblowers regardless of the policy stating that it must.

Besides, he tried to warn the NSA of his concerns and he was blown off.

When will the government decide that the reality is, they need to hold themselves accountable.

The world knows now, the damage is done but rather than face the music it’s this childish behavior of “let’s get the guy who told on us and call him a criminal.”

The whole thing just reminds me of playground bullies who got busted for beating up some kid at recess.

Russia, Russia, Russia.

It’s not exactly a secret that the US has more or less ticked off Russia lately, of course the relationship is frozen and of course Russia wants to build up the nuclear arms programs.

Our Government hasn’t exactly done a stellar job of making sure they build proper relationships with the right world leaders the past few years, especially building a relationship with Vladimir Putin.

Why would Russia want to play in the same sandbox nicely?

vladimir-putin-_crimeshop

So in a speech today, Vladimir Putin may have mentioned that Russia wants to strengthen its nuclear forces and in response to that Donald Trump may have tweeted a little something about doing the same.

Makes sense because you can’t really have a nuclear arms race with yourself…technically of course.

The real news that’s under-reported is that, Russia and the US are not the only countries attempting to strengthen nuclear arms forces.

IKEA-sleepover-crimeshop.jpg

The best headline in the news today comes from IKEA who has a message for everyone: Please, stop having sleepovers in the stores.”

I get it, if you have ever walked through an IKEA you know what I am talking about here, sometimes it’s like a maze, a long, never ending maze and some of the furniture looks pretty comfy…

But…

Apparently and I had no clue this was even a thing, people are hiding in IKEA stores until closing and then having a sleepover and then sharing the sleepover with social media.

So if your weekend plans included a sleepover at IKEA, the chain really hopes that you have a change of heart, since they prefer you not.

Also, something that I don’t often do, ever, I am sharing the following message from WikiLeaks.
“This Christmas, support those who are unable to spend their holidays freely because they chose to expose the truth. https://couragefound.org/donate/
