Vladimir Putin – Great Leader or Ruthless Monster?


Vladimir Putin – Was Willing to Shoot Down A Passenger Plane


On March 18 Russians will go to the polls to elect a new leader, which as you might imagine some have suggested that Putin might not win this election because he is well, some would perceive him as a jerk of sorts.

Over the weekend social media was a flutter about a new documentary “Putin,” where Vladimir openly admitted that back in 2014 he was willing to have a passenger plane shot down.

To put matters into perspective however, Putin was informed that a passenger plane had been taken hostage and the intended target was the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

In the end, the passenger plane was not shot down because well, the call was nothing more than a drunken prank.

Way to go, drunken pranksters, you could have been responsible for the killing of innocent people.

Initially I was taken aback a little by that news only because that for me, I am not tasked with keeping my entire nation or it’s people safe, so it’s easy for me to cast stones and think that Putin might be some type of monster.

However, if I were to ponder carefully upon the issue at hand I quickly realize that while I might want to believe that I myself would have made a completely different decision off the cusp, for a world leader making that decision is not as easy as we’d all like to think.

Options have to be weighed and lives have to be considered carefully and in this case the question of how many lives could have been lost vs how many passengers might have been on the plane went through Putin’s head.

No one has to like or agree with Putin’s initial decision, the fact remains that had that been a real situation, the choice he was willing to make at the end of the day, would have been the right one.

For Putin, I would imagine having been faced with the possibility of shooting down a passenger plane full of passengers vs allowing for it to take out Sochi and all of those attending the Winter Olympic Games could not have been an easy one to have made.

If anyone is under that impression, you might want to think twice because no leader wants to be the man or woman who was responsible for shooting down a passenger plane full of passengers, regardless of the circumstances.

We’d all like to believe that we as individuals would not make that decision because to most of us, it is not something we have ever had to face, it is not something we go about thinking of on a daily basis and our response to it would in fact not be the same.


For a leader however, they are from a different breed for the most part, although I have no explanation for Trump here, in general however, most world leaders do take the job very seriously and are sometimes faced with having to weigh ordering the loss of some lives in order to save great many more lives.

This is not an easy choice and one that I believe weighs quite heavily upon the souls of many leaders in our world today.

So what does that make Putin?


In my mind he’s a good leader, while yes he does some underhanded things at times, what leader of any nation with the exception of the Queen doesn’t? When compared to someone like Donald Trump, Putin by far deserves to be known as a great leader hands down.

He is the guy that would order a passenger plane to be shot down in order to save the maximum number of lives vs just a few.

That is what a leader should be doing.

Vladimir Putin’s Spy Game


Russia Double Agents – Beware

I keep having to tell my partner that I am not a spy, he asks me everyday almost, in fact last night after our date at the movie Black Panther he jokingly asked me if I felt a sense of connection with the spies in the movie.

The life of a spy, well that carries way more danger to it than I care to live every day.


This past week news started to break however with regards to a double agent that some suspect was poisoned by Russia for his betrayal of his onceloved homeland. Sergei Skripal, who was once a colonel in Russia’s GRU military intelligence service was poisoned along with his beloved daughter.

Sergei was born 6/23/1951, once convicted of spying on the UK back in 2006. Back in 2004, Sergei was arrested by Russia for trading some fairly sensitive intel about Russia to MI6.

The rumor was that Sergei had all of the makings of a James Bond style spy because of how it was that he traded intel to MI6.

What’s more is now questions are starting to surface with regards to the deaths of Surgei’s wife and son.

Sergei’s wife died in 2012 at the age of 59 according to the official report from a type of cancer, yet that has not stopped conspiracy theorists from asserting that somehow Russia may have very well ordered her to be executed as a way of sending a very clear message to Sergei.

To add further mystery here, neighbors said that Sergei’s wife in fact died in some type of car accident regardless of what the official autopsy report stated.

Sergei’s son died in 2017 at the age of 43 in of course some type of auto accident and the family cleaner claimed that Sergei’s son died of liver issues, which would makes sense if he drank excessively.


Vladimir Putin does have a long and rich history of having a zero tolerance policy with regards to double agents who trade Russian secrets, which is understandable, the US has policies so her own as does just about every other foreign nation who employs spies.

So what if Russia is behind the poisoning of the the double agent and his daughter?

You read that right, so what, spies know what they are getting themselves into when they sign up, this is far from unusual or surprising and it is well known worldwide that Sergei in fact gave Russian imtel to MI6, he by default betrayed his own nation, he is guilty of espionage and so should be be punished for that.

The UK sent a sort of hilarious warning to Russia over this mysterious poisoning of the double agent, they promised a “Robust Response,” should the UK find evidence that Russia is in fact behind the poisoning.

Honestly, it is highly unlikely that the UK will find a ton of concrete, nail in the coffin evidence, they did not the last time this happened.

To be even more honest, this is not surprising at all in the world of spies and double agents.

Wrong or right, this is the life of a spy, particularly that of a double agent. They know full well what they are signing on for so if they are trading intel of any type, one should fully expect something to happen, no one happily skips off into a field of flowers here.

When it comes to Russia, they have a fairly robust group of spies that are highly skilled at what they do, not mention a leader that his pretty fearless, betraying one’s nation by becoming a double agent and then being punished for that move is actually an unspoken law in the world of spies, espionage and engaging in the life of a double agent.

In the world of being a spy, rules are not followed, lies are told, secrets are traded and loyalty is very hard to come by.

Cellebrite Can Hack Any iPhone – Including iPhone X?


Hacking iPhones


Have you ever wondered who in the security world could possible hack your iPhone? I have actually and as it turns out a rumor from a couple of years ago stands to be pretty true.

When the FBI could not hack the San Bernardino shooters iPhone they asked for a little help, and they actually got it.

The reason the FBI was unable to gain access to the shooters phone if you’d like to take this lovely stroll down memory lane, was because someone had attempted to access it over 10 times, thus they got locked out of the phone.

The FBI asked Apple for help but Apple refused so, they turned to the world for assistance and at the time it was widely speculated that Cellebrite was able to successfully get the FBI that highly sought after access to the shooters phone.

Now if you are like me, you keep everything stored digitally, all records, all transactions etc, but if you are, let’s say a terrorist who is hell bent on killing it is highly unlikely that you would store much digitally, at the very least you would wipe everything you own so that no trace of anything could ever be found.

Which is pretty much what the FBI found in the San Bernardino shooters iPhone, nothing, but at least they gave it a shot.


At any rate Cellebrite and Israeli security firm, was in fact able to get the FBI into the phone and has now been able to successfully hack into all of the iPhone product line, including the beloved iPhoneX and as an added fun bonus, they can also hack into a locked iPad.

To be fair, Cellebrite has long touted some pretty advanced technological skills and has been able to hack into both Apple and Android devices in the past fairly easily.

Sadly, if you are under any type of impression that Cellebrite could be the only people in the world that are capable of this, think again because if they have found ways to get into a locked device, no matter what device, so have others.

What’s more is think about how far advanced with technology another country is, than America is.

All due no less to two very defining factors, our leadership and the public who screams for the ability to allow for law enforcement to have ways into our devices and or personal details but only when it suits us.

NRA – About to Find Itself Extinct – Like Dinosaurs


The National Rifle Association – Peddling Death for Profit

Have you ever found yourself reading a news story or watching the news and doing that face plant thing?

Several times this past weekend I have found myself doing just that at each and every story with regards to the NRA.

These idiots are actually starting to fight back against the growing list of companies and organizations who are pulling support for such and outdated, dinosaur of an organization whose ideals and beliefs really do not fit into today’s society.

Related image

Here is what the NRA said this past weekend:

“Let it be absolutely clear, the loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world.”

The NRA made that statement in response to the growing number of organizations such as airlines that are no longer going to give the NRA discounts. The NRA also accused companies and organizations of displaying political and civic cowardice.

Well, let me make one thing clear to the NRA, your organization and your beliefs are about to become extinct like the dinosaurs once became.

The last thing the NRA wants to do is to start to argue political and civic cowardice, that by far is the biggest hypocritical statement they could have made, for the NRA is the largest group of Americans that practice in the fine art both political and civic cowardice in that they hide behind this thing that makes people feel as if rights are deserved, a thing that is given simply because one is born an American Citizen.

American’s do not need nor do they want the NRA to hide behind that loosely true statement they made over the weekend here, the one in that they stated that they “stand for and defend the individual rights and freedoms of America?”

That is inaccurate to say the least, the NRA stands for greed, power, money, and weapons, that are designed to destroy, hurt and kill, nothing more or less than that.

The NRA does not give a shit about our individual rights or freedoms, if they did they might want to bother themselves to be a bit more compassionate towards mass shootings and the cry for more gun legislation, legislation that might prevent such events.

Make no mistake here, the NRA has absolutely no regard for human life, the right to be able to actually live, and to live free of the fear some NRA supporting, gun toting pig who will mow us down when he or she decides to have a mental break down and utilizes those shiny little toys the NRA stands to protect.

The shiny little trinkets that make the NRA it’s actual money.

The NRA and its supporters do not stand to protect individual rights at all, they simply hide behind outdated and unneeded gun laws so they can continue to exist.

Now is the time to assist the NRA to become extinct much like the dinosaurs once did, for this is a group that serves no purpose whatsoever other than to protect themselves from rights that should no longer exist and to merley peddle death for profit.

Uber Eats Driver – Kills Customer?


Uber Eats Delivering Murder Now


Murder now comes with your Uber Eats order, free of charge if you are into that sort of thing.

In the latest round of bad news for Uber, it appears that one of its drivers for Uber Eats may have gone the extra mile and murdered a customer.

Uber Eats driver, Robert Bivines of Atlanta went ahead and turned himself into today for the murder of his Uber Eats customer Ryan Thornton over the weekend.

Apparently, the two men exchanged some dialogue right before Robert pulled out a gun and shot Ryan as he walked away.

It’s a complete shock given Ubers ultra strict policy prohibiting firearms at the workplace that one of it’s ultra safely screened delivery drivers would just happen to have weapon, let alone use it on a customer.


Uber in the past few years has taken quite a few hits for everything from paying taxes, to paying drivers a fair wage, sexual assault so one of it’s Uber Eats drivers murdering someone is not such a huge shock to be honest.

While Uber does background check it’s drivers, they do very little to ensure the policies they set forth are actually followed by their drivers.

At any rate, you might want to reconsider that Uber Eats order and just go pick up the food you want yourself, it’s better to be safe than risk being shot in the back by your Uber Eats Driver.

FBI To Be Closed?


Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell Seems To Think They Should!

In light of this last week’s mass shooting, Judicial Watch Director of Investigations, one Chris Farrell seems to think that the FBI should just shutter up shop and close for good.


What’s more is that Chris is blaming Christopher Wray, the current Director of the FBI for failing to protect America.


Which is totally laughable to me, correct me if I am wrong here but isn’t our entire government failing America these days?

At any rate, to be fair the FBI was warned at least twice about the Florida shooter, Nikolas Cruz making deadly threats, within the last 6 months.

I believe it was a year or so ago that I wrote a piece about known, felons who are also gang members living in Chicago, who were legally waltzing into gun shops and purchasing guns, so it’s not like the FBI isn’t failing all over the board here.


Before everyone answers yes, let us take a step back and look at the black and white here.

Sure we expect the FBI to kick in a mans door and take his weapons when we want it, not necessarily when it actually needs to happen.

This is a discussion I have a lot with my dad, who if you’ll recall from past articles does not feel that it is a doctors business as to whether or not he owns a gun, he also does not feel that the government should be allowed to decide who owns guns and who doesn’t.

Please, entertain me and wrap your head around that for a second. How many gun rights activists can’t seem to have the brains enough to fathom that yet they are pro-gun ownership?

It’s clearly time for a reality check and it is time that when we tell the government that we expect them to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals that we finally allow for them to kick in a mans door and take said legally purchased weapons when that individual shows clear signs of instability.

I make no apologies here, we scream and cry for justice and protection yet we are the biggest hypocrites of all when it comes to actually enabling the government and all of it’s agencies in particular law enforcement at all levels to actually prevent mass shootings by restricting the ability to do so behind gun rights.
