Are We Facing The Summer of Violence?

Cristal M Clark

Tonight we as a nation are faced with yet another mass shooting, this one in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which has left 4 dead including the gunman. In Uvalde, Texas, last week a gunman slaughtered 19 kids and two teachers and injured at least 17 people last week. A mass shooting in Buffalo last week. 

We are seeing unprecedented acts of violence creep up here in the US and on top of all of that, we are starting to finally see strong signs of a looming recession. 

If we get hit with a recession, it would be at the worst possible of times for the United States. If the events of last week in Uvalde did not leave you reeling with outrage I cannot fathom what sort of individual you are. We are hearing more and more cries for gun control and quite honestly, gun control is not the problem here. It is the very departments who are tasked with overseeing potential threats to this nation and blatantly ignoring the red flags, whilst sitting idly by and doing nothing so as to prevent yet another mass shooting. 

It is time to take a very honest and hard look at what the issues are and solve them before we legislate for more gun control. Who keeps letting these shootings happen? 

Who? 

Well, if you look back at quite a few of our mass shootings in the nation, the FBI and in some cases local law enforcement. They had these individuals on a list, interviewed quite a few of them, our law enforcement agencies knew that most if not all of these mass shooters were problematic in nature, prior to a mass shooting, knew them to be mentally unstable and they stood out of each shooters way and allowed for the mass shootings to happen. 

So I would venture to say with absolute conviction that our very own men and women in uniform that line, the thin blue line failed at the whole protecting and serving part. And it’s not just mass shootings, hundreds of crimes are being reported every hour in this nation and nothing is fucking done about it. 

But you know what the thin blue line is engaging in rather than protecting and serving? Well that is quite the interesting thing, they have been engaging quite in common thuggery. 

Our law enforcement agencies were not created to protect and serve by the way, they were created under an administration that sought to control this country not to protect and serve. Policing was created under the civil war as a militarised group and to this day, our entire system is rife without moral, decency and a criminal mindset and still very much militarised. 

The Uvalde police stood outside and let children be slaughtered by a madman and they do not give a fuck for your sorrow. What policing has been for many years is a group of individuals who go after certain types of people, they harass, profile, intimidate, con people, kidnap, hold at gunpoint, bribe, set up and encourage criminal activity for the sole purpose of busting people. What they are not doing, is protecting and serving. 

Law enforcement in the United States makes up the largest organised criminal organisation in the world or perhaps second to the Narcos and the Sicario. They serve to intimidate and harass and incarcerate. In fact the entirety of our legal and judicial system does just that. They were designed to go after particular groups of individuals. Racketeering, for example, DA’s love this charge because the implications will allow for enhanced sentencing right, it means you can lock someone up who is not a murderer for the maximum amount of time, but if you look at all of the things that make up a racketeering charge it makes no bloody sense at all. I was held as prisoner in my own home and that guy didn’t get charges like racketeering, but lets say my neighbour who is part of a group law enforcement has targeted and labelled them as someone who is part of a criminal organisation, like a chess club but a wee bit more daring and my neighbour takes a hostage? Well he’s certainly fucked, he’ll be charged under what is that, the Colorado Organised Crime Control Act (CRS 18-17-104) The Colorado Organised Crime Control Act prohibits a number of criminal activities aimed at members of criminal enterprises. It prohibits racketeering activity, which generally includes crimes committed by gangs or organised crime. 

Law enforcement is utilising labels to do all of the things individuals who are charged under this law with, and they do it to those individuals because of a label. Law enforcement in the United States actively engages in the very activities that make up Organised Crime in this country. And we are turning a blind eye to it. 

So no, more gun laws simply will not work. We need to address the how and why and change those laws as well as the very people today we are tasking to enforce them. Today’s Policing is not the answer neither is the FBI for that matter, whatever book they are going by, well it needs to be tossed and rewritten to better fit into today’s world. The whole system in its very entirety needs to be torn down and changed. And more gun control is not going to fix a thing. 

Our laws here in the US by the way are instilled by judges who interpret them, yes, nothing is actually literal. So no the entire system before we can control mass shootings is already designed for failure.

Quite honestly, I wore the other boot once and I know all too well how law enforcement entraps certain people and why they choose to do that, it’s not right and it is never fair to the individuals who are ultimately charged and incarcerated. Law enforcement willing set them up, willingly engaged in criminal activity and created the drama so as to create the crime just so that they can charge them for no reason at all. On the flip side of that, I still talk to quite a few coppers, they don’t give a fuck anymore, they feel the public discontent and they don’t care about you, me or anyone. Many departments and agencies are hurting because they cannot fill the void. 

All of this is of particular importance because the sure tell signs of a recession are already here, and as people lose jobs, homes, food, shelter, comforts, they will in fact, react in violent ways. And do you believe the police or the FBI are going to step and protect any of you? Do you?

We must fix our legal system, every law written and change out our current bitter, hateful and uncaring law enforcement entity before we will ever be able to fix madmen with guns slaughtering innocent children.

 Russia and China Are Teaming Up

Cristal M Clark

Some might say that Russia and China teaming up sounds insane but the reality is they are two of the most powerful nations, both poised to surpass the United States in almost everything and that includes the coveted roles of World Leaders and Space Leaders.  

The two have presented a plan to build the joint International Lunar Research Station (ILRS). The proposed lunar base is slated to be ready for crewed visits by the year 2036 and it is important to note that it is completely unrelated to the NASA-led Artemis program, which is to land on the moon by 2024, and have the first woman of color on board. To other nations it has also become painfully clear that date is pretty unlikely for the United States. The better bet is that Corporate Space Travel is going to get us to the Moon and elsewhere a lot faster than NASA. 

ILRS is open to other nations joining them, which makes a lot of folks wonder why the United States isn’t joining. We are already losing our footing as a world leader. Do we really want to lose any more ground by not working with other nationions in the effort to explore outer space? The point here is, we have all but ruined any chance of this planet’s ability to continue to support life for the long term, shouldn’t we start learning to play together in an effort to save life as we know it? Or does the US still think it’s king to all?

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.

Cop Tied to Cartels?

RCMP-Crimeshop

Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Cristal M Clark 

Cameron Ortis, 47, the civilian director of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) intelligence unit, was charged last week with 3 counts of breaching the Security Information Act and two criminal code offenses. Basically, he has been charged with attempting to sell national secrets. 

cameron-ortis-canadian-intelligence-crimeshop

The charges go all the way back to 2015 and allege that Cameron attempted to sell high level secrets to an unnamed foreign entity. 

The bad news is that no one is really quite sure just who that foreign entity was, some speculate it was China, others believe it to be drug cartels. 

Canada is having some relationship issues with China currently yet, the drug cartel idea seems to be most fitting in this case. Cameron does happen to have a background in East Asian affairs and, according to his Linkedin profile, speaks Mandarin. So, it would not be far fetched to believe he was selling intel to China. 

I know how it sounds however, Canada is big on BlackBerry smartphones, Vancouver happens to host a pretty seedy company tasked with upgrading the BlackBerry smartphones with unhackable encrypted communications for drug cartel bosses in Mexico, the United States, and in Australia. 

Odd right?

Naturally, this upgrading for the cartels has been happening without the consent and knowledge of well, the makers of BlackBerry, which is even more odd and outlandish. 

To make matters worse this has the potential to be an embarrassment for the Canadian security establishment, because of her intelligence relationships with, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Cameron had “Top Secret” clearance, which means that he also had access not only to the files of Canada’s 20 intelligence-gathering agencies, but also to those of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. 

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Commissioner of the RCMP, Brenda Lucki are trying to work with her allies to ensure that nothing super significant was sold. 

The rumors are running pretty rampant in both the US and in Canada about just what Cameron had access to, who he sold it to and why, some even suggest that the FBI had been the ones to alert Canadian Authorities about Cameron but US officials have neither confirmed nor denied that.

Trump Administration Says Goodbye INF Treaty

TrumpPutinINF-Crimeshop

Hello Nuclear Arms Race?

By: Cristal M Clark

In rather delightful news today, the Trump Administration has announced the United States departure from the nuclear missile treaty with none other than Russia.

Some are speculating this might be the start of a new and improved nuclear arms race. In fact, some reports are stating this move might “kick-start” a new nuclear arms race, which if I am not mistaken has already started, long before the US backed out of the INF today.

Mike-Pompeo-crimeshop.jpg

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during this morning’s press conference that, “Russia has jeopardized United States security interests, and we can no longer be restricted by the treaty while Russia shamelessly violates it.”  

inf treaty-crimeshop

Mike is not wrong either. Russia’s new nuclear-capable missile actually violates the 1987 INF that the country signed with the United States back in 1987.

Some would still argue that the US should have remained in the treaty and somehow attempted to talk Russia into behaving rather than misbehaving.

Putin-CrimeShop

Whenever someone does that with me, my first move is to misbehave personally so, I doubt very much that Russia, knowing what we know about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Moscow, will shape up and play nice when Trump or his administration demand them to do so.

The mistake that Trump made here however, was that he failed to discuss this move with Europe prior to announcing it and that has started a bit of a novella throughout the world.

Additionally, now that the US has left the treaty, Russia is pretty much out of the dog house and in the clear so as to not abide by it which is leaving some to worry about a potential war in the long run because, by simply leaving the treaty, we no longer have any leverage with Russia.

Then again Russia as well as other foreign countries were already building up their nuclear capabilities up while at the same time disregarding the treaty.

So why would the US even stay in it, no one else is playing nice in the sandbox after all.

In a rare move, I actually agree with Trump and his Administration on this one. The US simply cannot remain part of a treaty with others where we are the only ones who are actually abiding by that treaty.

New Ransomware Attack Strikes – Russia and Ukraine

 

bad-rabbit-attack-Crimeshop

 

Bad Rabbit Ransomware – Coming to a Country Near You Soon!

 

First can I just ask who in God’s name is naming some of this ransomware because dubbing the newest attack “Bad Rabbit” gives me nightmares about a horror movie I once saw as a child from 1972 entitled “Night of the Lepus.”

 

night-of-the-lepus-CrimeShop

 

This newest attack has already hit Russia and Ukraine and according to US officials, this newest attack has hit several other countries in addition to Russia and Ukraine, they have seen it hit Germany, Poland, South Korea and Turkey as well, so far.

News reports from the US are currently filtering in, slowly but the attack has in fact hit the United States, no word yet on how many have been affected.

Since the majority of the victims from this attack as it stands as of right now have been in Russia, it is fair to assume that Russia may have been the intended target here.

 

WannaCry-ransomeware-crimeshop

 

It does actually bare some pretty eerie similarities to WannaCry and Peyta, Malware analyst Amit Serper, principal security researcher of Cybereason,  did happen to release a tweet with instructions for stopping the attack from happening.

 

kim-jong-un survives-US assassination-plot-crimeshop

 

I almost hate to say it here, I have just one very small suspicion that this might be the work of some government somewhere in the world that simply wants to prove a point.

Bad Rabbit is for sure coming to a country near you sooner rather than later, but I bet you won’t be seeing it hit North Korea, any time in the near future.

Putin Caves to Restrictions Imposed By The United Nations

United States Ready for War With North Korea?

 

Putin-Imposes-UN-Sanctions-CrimeShop

 

Vladimir Putin managed to catch the world by surprise today as he announced that Russia would in fact, adhere to UN sanctions against North Korea by putting a halt to various types of economic, scientific and technical ties with Pyongyang in accordance with sanctions imposed by the U.N. Security Council.

The sanctions by the way were imposed in November of 2016 so way to go Russia for providing that support to North Korea for almost an entire year after the fact.

 

EU-CrimeShop

 

The EU today decided to impose a total ban of EU investment on North Korea over its continued nuclear weapons development and subsequent testing.

They handed out asset freezes and travel bans on 3 people and  6 “entities,” which are normally just companies or organizations with ties to North Korea.

The EU actually did take a pretty big step further here by putting a ban on the sale of refined petroleum products and crude oil to North Korea and to add insult to injury, the EU elected to cut the amount of money people can send to North Korea from 15,000 to 5,000 euros ($17,700 to $5,900) the amount of money people can send to North Korea.

And the icing on the cake here?

The EU also elected to forgo renewing  work permits for North Koreans working in the ministers territories, apart from refugees and others in need of international protection.

 

Trump-Calls-For-New-Sanctions-CrimeShop

 

As for the US, Trump is going to ask other US allies to impose further sanctions upon North Korea when the White House makes it’s scheduled trip in November to  Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

 

Kim-Jong-Un-CrimeShop

 

It is beginning to look as if Foreign States finally realized just what a threat North Korea has become and are now taking action.

New Reports are indicating that the US is saying that they are ready for war with North Korea as well.

So?

That does leave the obvious question, is Kim Jong-Un ready to back down or risk ending up holding the very short end of the stick?

ISIS Offers To Assassinate Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin

 

putin-trump-crimeshop

 

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.

North Korea to The United States – “We will Destroy You Like Rabid Dogs”

North Korea Fires a New Missile – Japan Takes Cover

The US has confirmed as have South Korea’s media service and Japan that North Korea has fired yet another missile early Friday morning from from Sunan, which is the site of Pyongyang’s international airport.

north-korea-fires-missiles-crimeshop

The missile launched in an eastwardly direction which flew over Japan and landed in the Pacific Ocean.

Residents of Japan are being asked to avoid anything that could possibly be missile debris.

The White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed that President Donald Trump has been briefed on the launch by Chief of Staff John Kelly.

North - Korea-Fires -Missile-Over - Japan-CrimeShop

North Korea’s September 3rd nuclear test was so strong that it actually sunk an 85 acre area on the top of a mountain above the tunnels of where the test took place. That is according to new satellite images.

What’s worst is that North Korea has threatened to destroy, not just go to war with but, destroy The United States, South Korea and Japan.

Or at least a spokesperson for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, which oversees North Korea’s foreign affairs and propaganda had this to say:

“Let’s reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness, the US should be beaten to death as a stick is fit for a rabid dog.”

And with regards to Japan:

“The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche. Japan is no longer needed to exist near us.”

And finally, about South Korea:

“The group of pro-American traitors should be severely punished and wiped out with fire attack so that they could no longer survive.”

This from a country that continues to fire ‘test’ missiles that cannot seem to hit any type of significant land mass.

They either overshoot or under-perform…

Kim-Jong-Un-CrimeShop

True, Kim Jong-Un is waiting to see when would be the most opportune time to strike, however the clock is ticking the more he and his people run off at the mouth, the more enticing it is for the US to just blow up North Korea and turn it into ash rather than the other way around as North Korea has suggested recently.

Think about it, all the rabid dog threats or redneck jokes, accusations about Trump being crazy, that man, Donald Trump the one that encompasses all of those images, he is sitting in the oval office and with just a waive of the hand, North Korea could be done.

For a time, unless the entire country is wiped off of the face of the earth, we would only still be simply cutting the head off of the snake, the body will still go on.

Kim-Jong-Un-attack-Trump-US-world-war3-crimeshop

Simply put, Donald Trump and his team, they are pretty much the loosest of cannons we have here in America, and Donald Trump is our President, he and his team, they run this country, Kim Jong-Un might want to take note of that.
