Whistleblower: Obama-era Deep State Surveillance Program Spied on Trump, Judges, Others

As the endless drone of “Trump/Russia collusion” continues, more evidence is to coming to light that key Democrats — including President Barack Obama — used the power of the surveillance state to illegally spy on prominent Americans — including Donald Trump (even before he was a candidate). As part of what President Trump has repeatedly called a “witch hunt,” the Obama administration collected confidential data on Trump and others, according to freedom activist lawyer Larry Klayman, who is also the founder of both Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch.

Klayman’s claim is not new. In fact, it is not even really his claim. It comes from his client, former NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery, who “left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information, much of which is classified,” showing “the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump” and Larry Klayman himself, according to a an op-ed piece written by Klayman in March 2017. The purpose of that illegal Deep State surveillance — Klayman surmises — is “for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.”

Given the way the Deep State (and its Democrat political accomplices) have attacked, derided, smeared, and undermined Donald Trump since as soon as he became a viable candidate, it is easy to follow — and believe — Klayman’s assertion

In June 2017, Klayman joined Montgomery in suing former FBI Director James Comey, alleging that the FBI (under Comey’s leadership) was involved in a cover-up of the FBI targeting both Klayman and Montgomery — along with others — as subjects of illegal surveillance. As Klayman stated after filing the suit:

Former FBI Director Comey and his agency have not only illegally spied on Mr. Montgomery and me, but have covered up and thus engaged in an obstruction of justice of the FBI’s and the other intelligence agencies’ illegal and unconstitutional mass surveillance. In the process of this illegal behavior, they have seriously damaged Montgomery and me, and they will be held fully accountable under the rule of law, for this and other tortious acts which should also now be included in the on-going grand jury investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

When Montgomery walked away from his NSA/CIA contract in 2015 with those hundreds of millions of damning documents, he did so as a whistleblower. But — as Klayman wrote in the above-cited op-ed piece, “when Montgomery came forward as a whistleblower to congressional intelligence committees and various other congressmen and senators, including Senator Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who, like Comey, once had a reputation for integrity, he was ‘blown off;’ no one wanted to even hear what he had to say.” Klayman offers two believable possible reasons for the cold shoulder Montgomery received from the congressional intelligence and judiciary committees: “Montgomery’s allegations were either too hot to handle” or those committees “already knew that this unconstitutional surveillance was being undertaken.” The second option would mean that the Deep State has deep roots and may well be controlling some on those committees. It could be that the coercion and blackmail Klayman mentioned is at the foundation of that control.

The lawsuit against Comey stems from then-FBI Director Comey burying Montgomery’s evidence. After being “blown off” by those who — as part of their congressional duties — are charged with watching the watchers, Montgomery went to Klayman. With the help of the Honorable Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (who also served as presiding judge of the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court from 1995 to 2002), Klayman brought Montgomery forward to FBI Director James Comey, through his General Counsel James Baker.

After receiving an immunity deal to prevent being charged for removing classified information, Montgomery turned over the hard drives to the FBI and submitted to being interviewed by agents. In that interview — which was conducted and videoed by Special FBI Agents Walter Giardina and William Barnett — Montgomery “laid out how persons such as then-businessman Donald Trump were illegally spied upon by Clapper, Brennan, and the spy agencies of the Obama administration,” according to Klayman. Even more damning, Klayman says Montgomery told the agents that the information on those hard drives shows that “these spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, which illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.”

What was the result of that interview and the turning over of those drives? Nothing. Montgomery was again ignored.

While both Montgomery and Klayman are controversial figures, that fact is irrelevant to the point of whether what they are telling is the truth. That is best determined by examining their claims in light of the evidence. That evidence is damning to the Deep State.

On March 19, 2017, Lt. General Thomas McInerney, who seved as as commander of 11th Air Force in Alaska, as well as other top military positions under the secretary of defense and the vice president of the United States before his retirement in 1994, was a guest on Ann Arbor’s WAAM radio program “Operation Freedom.” McInerney told host Dr. Dave Janda that he had just received from retired Four-Star Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, who had served as Commander of the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet from 1985 to 1987, information showing that “President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan oversaw a secret computer system known as ‘The Hammer.’”

That program was used to conduct “illegal and unconstitutional government data harvesting and wire-tapping.” While reading the message from Lyons, McInerney states that Montgomery is the original source of the information. The revelation of “The Hammer” meshes perfectly with WikiLeaks “Vault 7” revelations of a CIA project code-named HAMR that is used to conduct mobile phone hacking for the purpose of turning a target’s mobile phone into a surveillance tool.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller — who is leading the investigation of Trump/Russia collusion — is also implicated as being involved in the illegal surveillance program during his tenure as Director of the FBI from 2001 to 2013. In an exclusive interview with CDN, Klayman said that the FBI, under Mueller, was the supplier of the computers used to conduct the illegal surveillance on Trump and others. Montgomery is quoted in the article as declaring, “This is very, very, very powerful technology, and it was created under Robert Mueller’s watch. The last person I would think that should be investigating Donald Trump is Robert Mueller, who was collecting information on Donald Trump ten years ago…. Mueller has a huge conflict of interest, a huge conflict of interest.”

Further evidence comes from the trove of text messages back and forth between those two now-infamous FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were no more careful about exposing their political agenda than they were about exposing their extramarital affair. Strzok and Page worked on both the Clinton e-mail server investigation and the Trump/Russia collusion investigation. Text messages back and forth between the two reveal plans to protect Hillary Clinton from the consequences of operating an illegal e-mail server and an “insurance policy” they and others inside the Deep State had in place to either keep Donald Trump from winning the election — or at least deligitimize his presidency, if he were to win.

Mueller — who is up to his neck in the illegal surveillance of Trump (years before he was a candidate) and other private U.S. citizens — appears to be that “insurance policy.” And — to put in the for-what-it’s-worth column — it was Mueller, in his capacity as FBI Director, who personally delivered the Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) to Russia as part of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s UraniumOne scandal. That scandal filled Hillary’s financial coffers while selling off roughly a quarter of America’s uranium reserves to the very people she and Mueller are now accusing Trump of colluding with.

Within hours of McInerney’s revelation of “The Hammer,” Strzok and Page texted back and forth about Klayman and Montgomery, mentioning them by name, saying about an e-mail they had just received, “I’m not going to respond to the whole group. The Klayman/Montgomery stuff in the email Jim just sent is utter BS. Best to say nothing and brief later if necessary.”

The weaponization of illegally gathered data on “Supreme Court Justices, 159 Article III judges, elected officials, and 20 million other Americans” including Donald Trump, alleged by Montgomery and Klayman and demonstrated by the evidence that continues to come forward, seems to have been the Deep State’s most powerful tool in controlling the direction of America. With the surprise election of Trump, that program appears ready to be fully exposed. That is exposure the Deep State cannot stand.

I Don’t Want This Billion Dollars’: Ex-CEO Mark Karpeles Shuns Mt. Gox Windfall

Gox Mark Karpeles

Former Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles publicly claimed he “doesn’t want” a windfall of 160,000 bitcoins, which should go to shareholders under Japanese law.


Karpeles: Get This $1.127 Billion Away From Me!

In a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ Q&A session April 3, the defunct cryptocurrency exchange’s most infamous figure faced fresh criticism as he confirmed shareholders were in line to receive 160,000 BTC ($1.127 billion USD). 

Mt. Gox is currently in the process of reimbursing users who lost funds during the infamous hack in 2014.

Under Japanese bankruptcy law, claims “were registered in the valuation of Japanese Yen on the bankruptcy date,” Karpeles explains, with the difference in exchange rate resulting in a ‘glut’ of bitcoins which, according to the rules, should be distributed among shareholders. 

“That’s the only way any bankruptcy law can reasonably work. And yet, in this case, it produces an egregiously distasteful outcome in that the shareholders of MtGox would walk away with the value of over 160,000 bitcoin as a result of what happened,” he wrote on Reddit. 

I don’t want this. I don’t want this billion dollars.

Mt. Gox Creditors Cry Foul

The process of returning funds to Mt. Gox’s long-suffering creditors has taken over four years and resulted in considerable frustration on the part of those who lost money. 

While mass Bitcoin sell-offs to credit victims began in the last quarter of 2017, some are still hugely resentful of Karpeles, who is seen as the embodiment of the mismanagement, which continues to deprive them of their own funds.

Mt. Gox Where is Our Money

One creditor, cryptocurrency commentator known as Flibbr, vented their frustration on social media as the Q&A continued, having submitted a query which went unanswered by Karpeles.

Karpeles did an AMA on reddit 1 hour ago. I posted to him how come he gets to keep all the btc, i get fucked all, when he’s the one that committed fraud and kraken/jesse are incompetent and cannot respond to emails or make a working website @jespow@krakenfx @MtGoxpic.twitter.com/wEbfTYWM06

Other Reddit users praised Karpeles for his current handling of the situation, describing his words as “pretty fair” and acknowledging his limited input on the reimbursement procedure.

NRA’s Marion Hammer wants water agency abolished over gun club dispute

NRA’s Marion Hammer wants water agency abolished over gun club dispute

George Silvernail Jr. watches as another man shoots at the Skyway Trap & Skeet Club. Pollution from lead bullets and shot fired from the club is a source of contention with the water agency.

The National Rifle Association’s most influential lobbyist blasted a state water agency Tuesday, demanding that Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature abolish the Southwest Florida Water Management District for what she called violations of the Second Amendment.

Marion Hammer, whose Florida concealed weapons permit is License No. 0000001, is upset at the agency commonly known as Swiftmud because of a decade-long conflict over a Pinellas Park gun club and lead pollution caused by spent ammunition.

Hammer, who has been lobbying for the NRA since 1978, called Swiftmud “a malignant state agency that uses unlimited tax dollars in what I can only call an evil attempt to steal private property and destroy a small private business.”

“They clearly think they are above the law,” Hammer, 78, said in an email to the Tampa Bay Times. She’s also calling for Attorney General Pam Bondi and the governor’s inspector general to investigate the agency and prosecute everyone involved.

The Skyway Trap & Skeet Club, which has been around 71 years, sits next to Sawgrass Lake Park. The park, owned by Swiftmud, has had to deal with pollution caused by all the lead bullets and shot fired from the club. 

In recent years the gun industry has become so concerned about lead pollution that the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturing Institute published a manual to show ranges how to avoid harming the environment — a manual prepared with the NRA’s help.

The manual says the lead in spent bullets and shotgun pellets that accumulate around outdoor ranges can dissolve and spread, polluting the ground, contaminating nearby wetlands and streams, and poisoning fish and other wildlife. At indoor ranges, lead dust generated by the firing of guns can be inhaled by customers and employees, leading to health problems.

The state Department of Environmental Protection sued Skyway in 2000 over the lead contamination. The case went to mediation, during which Swiftmud offered to pay for cleaning up the gun club land if the club moved. 

Swiftmud got involved because the agency, created by the Legislature in 1961, is in charge of protecting the water resources in a 16-county area with a population of 4.7 million people.

Club officials said they would not agree unless Swiftmud also bought a specific property as the club’s new home, paid its moving and legal bills and reimbursed it for lost income. Swiftmud said no.

Because of that suit, Hammer prodded the Legislature in 2004 to pass a bill banning any state agency from ever suing a gun range. She called such lawsuits “back door gun control” and contended then that state officials were “drunk with power, and they think they can bully anybody they want.”

The legislation said a change was necessary because the high cost of fighting off lawsuits filed by overly aggressive state regulators “threatens to destroy the sport shooting and training range industry.” 

However, state records showed no privately owned range had ever been driven out of business by a lawsuit mandating cleanup. Although Hammer said Skyway wasn’t the sole cause of the legislation, it was the only one being sued.

Just as the measure passed, Swiftmud and the DEP reached a settlement with the gun club that resulted in the taxpayers footing the $25 million bill to clean up a million pounds of lead in the park and lake. 

The club was supposed to erect a barrier to block any more shots from going into the lake, but it has not done so. Last summer Swiftmud went to court to enforce the agreement, and sought a judge’s order to forbid any further shooting until the matter is resolved. Last month, a judge said the shooting would have to stop for now.

That’s what angered Hammer. She contends Swiftmud failed to carry out its promise to build a berm that the shot barrier would sit atop. She also says Swiftmud’s legal action violates the 2004 law signed by then-Gov. Jeb Bush, although a judge has ruled otherwise.

“The district has attempted to engage Skyway in a dispute resolution process provided by the settlement agreement and remains hopeful that Skyway will proceed in good faith to honor its obligations under the agreement,” Swiftmud spokeswoman Susanna Martinez Tarokh said. 

She did not address Hammer’s call to abolish the agency. Neither did the governor’s staff, at least directly.

“We are confident water management board members and the NRA can work together on a solution that is good for everyone,” Scott spokeswoman Jackie Schutz said.

As for Bondi, her staff said any such investigation would have to be undertaken by local prosecutors. Hammer was not happy about that, declaring that Bondi’s staff “always punts. But I don’t let them punt. … It’s a shame when you have to explain their jobs to some of her employees.”

In August, the Pinellas County school system stopped sending students to Sawgrass for their fourth-grade environmental education field trips “out of an abundance of caution due to concerns about lead,” district spokeswoman Lisa Wolf said. She added the district did not notify parents because Florida environmental officials did not deem the levels to be dangerous to the children.

Hammer is not alone in demanding action. Allen D. Conner, who owns Roberts Mobile Home Park adjacent to Sawgrass Lake, has been coming to St. Petersburg City Council meetings for months to warn that lead contamination might seep into the city’s water lines. 

City officials deny that could happen.

Hammer, who was the national NRA’s first female president, wields tremendous clout both in Tallahassee and nationwide. She wrote Florida’s concealed-weapons law, which was then copied by 40 other states. She’s also the author of the state’s controversial Stand Your Ground law, which was copied by other states as well.

In 2009, when 20,000 schoolchildren signed petitions to change the state bird from the mockingbird to the osprey, Hammer — a mockingbird fan — single-handedly persuaded legislators to reject that request.

Fact-checking Netanyahu’s ‘Dramatic’ Statement on Meeting State’s Witnesses

The police don’t have to let state’s witnesses confront their accusers, and corruption doesn’t necessarily include cash

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivers a statement live on I24 TV channel at the Prime Minister's Office, Jerusalem, Israel, January 7, 2019.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu complained on Monday about the way the police and prosecution were handling the investigations into his affairs, saying that he requested to face state’s witnesses in the corruption probes against him and was denied twice.  

But while a suspect may ask the police to allow him to confront his accusers, it is not a given right and the police do not have to acquiesce.

It is not uncommon to allow the confrontation between suspect and witness, which, when done, is usually at the initiative of the police who hope to examine the dynamic between the two. But the police make selective use of such confrontations. In rape cases, for instance, the behavior of the suspect during a confrontation may speak volumes.

Section 293 of Israel’s penal code, titled “Methods of bribery,” explains that graft may take myriad forms: “In connection with a bribe it is immaterial… whether it was in cash or in kind, a service or any other benefit,” the law states.

Speaking at a Bar Association conference in April, Justice Anat Baron said that corruption can take various forms, among which she noted fawning media coverage. Donating to a nonprofit association dear to the heart of a public official, or providing free advice, are also corruption, she said, adding: “The crime of corruption can also take form when the beneficiary of the benefit is not a public servant but a third person, and even if at the end of the day, no benefit was given” – note the case dubbed “2000” involving a deal for sweetheart media coverage of the Netanyahus by the Yedioth Ahronoth publishing group, which did not ultimately come to fruition.

What the prime minister said in his address to the nation on Monday evening was not accurate. In February 2017, the white-collar crime prosecutors filed charges against Ashkelon mayor Itamar Shimoni for taking bribes from the businessman Alon Davidi in the form of adulatory coverage in the local paper Davidi owns, Kol Ashkelon. Davidi, according to the charges, also bought an internet site that had been critical of Shimoni, and closed it down. It is true that the courts haven’t ruled on the matter yet, but the point is that the prosecution feels that sweetheart coverage is a bribe.

On Monday, Netanyahu stated that the prosecution is failing to summon witnesses who have information contradicting the claims against him. For instance, Netanyahu claimed: “I heard that they did not summon the most important regulator in Case 4000, the antitrust commissioner.” In the so-called Case 4000, Netanyahu is suspected of giving regulatory concessions to the Bezeq telecoms monopoly, owned by his friend Shaul Elovitch, in exchange for favorable coverage of himself and his family on a popular news site owned by Elovitch, Walla.

Also in the context of Elovitch, permission for his company Bezeq to formally merge with its subsidiary Yes, a cable TV company (the issue at the heart of Case 4000) required the permission of two regulators: the antitrust commissioner, and the Communications Ministry. The merger was approved in 2014 by an acting antitrust commissioner, Assaf Eilat, with a number of contingencies, and this was before Netanyahu took over as communications minister. The professional elements at the ministry had approved the merger, as said with contingencies, including a reform to introduce competition into the wireline market to diminish Bezeq’s monopoly over phone lines.

The thing is that those contingencies were removed during Netanyahu’s term as communications minister and that of Shlomo Filber as director-general of the Communications Ministry.

Eilat’s testimony could bolster Netanyahu’s defense that the professional elements had approved the deal and his signature on it was technical. However, the investigators believe that without the intervention by Filber and Netanyahu, the transaction would not have been carried out.

Writing in 2015 about the damage he would sustain if Netanyahu failed to approve the Bezeq-Yes merger, Elovitch stated: “No harm would be caused to the self-righteous reporters, but I would suffer enormous damage. If [Netanyahu] doesn’t sign, there’s no deal.”

Netanyahu also queried Monday why Yair Lapid hasn’t been investigated for meeting dozens of times with Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Noni Mozes in a secret location in Savyon; destroying documentation of the meetings; and ensuring that the Knesset members in his party Yesh Atid vote in favor of the so-called “Noni Law” that would have closed down rival paper Israel Hayom; and getting favorable coverage.

Case 2000 centers on discussions between the prime minister and Arnon Mozes, the publisher of the Yedioth Ahronoth daily, allegedly involving favorable news coverage for the prime minister in exchange for government policies benefitting Yedioth. But that investigation began serendipitously – because of tapes found on the telephone of former Netanyahu confidant and state’s witness Ari Harow. The tapes showed meetings between Netanyahu and Mozes in which they discussed favorable coverage in Yedioth in exchange for weakening Yisrael Hayom.

Presumably if similar tapes had been found documenting Mozes and Lapid talking about adulatory coverage in exchange for hurting Yisrael Hayom, Lapid would also have been questioned.

PM vows ‘we’re prepared for any scenario’ following Shin Bet head’s warning that foreign state is seeking to interfere in upcoming elections

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that Israel leads the world in cyber-defense, following a report that an unnamed nation planned to meddle in its upcoming general election.

“Israel is prepared to thwart a cyber intervention, we’re prepared for any scenario and there’s no country more prepared than we are,” he told reporters.

On Tuesday, Hadashot television news reported that the head of the Shin Bet security agency said Israel was bracing for a state-driven cyber intervention in the April 9 poll.

“A foreign state is planning on intervening in the upcoming elections in Israel, and it will intervene,” Nadav Argaman was quoted as telling participants at an event.

“I don’t know at this stage in favor of who or against who,” he reportedly said in Hebrew.

Though Argaman’s statements were made during an event hosted by Friends of Tel Aviv University, Israel’s military censor barred from publication much of what he said.

The Shin Bet later issued a statement saying that Israel “has the tools to locate, monitor and thwart attempts of foreign influence, if there should be any.”

“The Israeli security establishment can enable holding democratic and free elections in Israel,” it said in a statement late Tuesday.

Following the TV report, Labor MK Ayelet Nahmias-Verbin submitted a request to urgently convene the Knesset’s cyber subcommittee.

“Foreign interference in election campaigning could critically harm the public’s trust in the government, Israeli democracy and in particular the results of the election campaign, as the results must reflect the will of the voter,” she wrote in a letter to Likud MKs Avi Dichter and Anat Berko, who respectively head the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and Subcommittee for Cyber Defense.

Russia denied social media speculation it was the state planning to disrupt the Israeli vote.

“Russia has never interfered in elections in any country and has no plans to do it in the future,” presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in comments relayed by the Russian embassy in Israel.

The issue of foreign meddling in elections attracted attention following the 2016 US presidential campaign, during which, the American intelligence community has said, Russia interfered on behalf of Donald Trump.

Russia has also been accused of seeking to influence various elections around Europe through disinformation campaigns.

Ahead of municipal elections in October, Israel’s National Cyber Directorate said thousands of fake Facebook profile accounts created to spread false information about Israeli political candidates had been taken offline at the agency’s request, in the possible beginnings of a major attempt to influence Israeli voters.

Research: Hacking Wall Street – Restructuring the law for hackers’ trading schemes POSTED BY: TAMER SAMEEH JANUARY 9, 2019

As today one can buy Wall Street stock over the internet, a new form of securities fraudsters have recently been targeted by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This new breed of fraudsters execute their conspiring schemes through the internet, beyond the conventional boundaries of corporate boardrooms. They are cybercriminals who attack and compromise computer networks of business corporations, financial newswires, and law firms in order to phish non-public financial data that can help them gain an edge across financial markets. Many believe that you needn’t be a Wall Street insider to be able to pull off profitable insider trading.

hacking wall street.jpg

To respond to this, the SEC has decided to expand Section 10(b) of 1934’s Securities Exchange Act to include hackers via a new theory centered on insider trading. However, computer hackers who phish information that can be exploited for securities trading purposes are significantly different from typical defendants involved in insider trading cases. Such cases have been typically associated with two forms of defendants:

1- Corporate insiders, including directors and officers, breaching their fiduciary duty to companies’ shareholders via trading stock by relying on material non-public data, which is not disclosed to shareholders.

2- Corporate outsiders, including lawyers and broker-dealers, breaching confidentiality duty via trading securities by relying on data which was entrusted to them provided that it would not be utilized for personal gain.

On the other hand, a computer based hacker-trader is a special form of corporate outsider, who is unrelated to either the shareholders or information sources that could be exploited for personal profit. Moreover, oppositely to outsiders, who exploit their relationship to information sources for their personal profit, hackers solely rely on their technical skills in order to access insider information. In other words, even though the hacker-trader’s advantage was also clearly unfair, they leveraged it, not via privilege or unique connections, but via the rare combination of advanced technologies, criminal intentions, and risk taking.

A recently published paper delves into the challenge that lies in holding computer hacker-traders and cybercriminals liable for this modern form of insider trading. The paper adds to the currently available literature via debating that, even if courts eventually support the SEC’s suggested expansion of insider trading law to include hackers, some innovative hackers may still be able to avoid liability. The paper also provides a summary of the so-called traditional and misappropriation insider trading theories and reasons that explain why the present legal framework is not ideally structured to deal with computer hackers.

Two important hacker-trader/seller-trader cases:

The paper presents some of the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) criminal prosecutions and SEC’s enforcement actions brought specifically against computer hacker-traders. The paper focuses mainly on two cases:

1- SEC vs Dorozhko: In this case, the Second Circuit adopted a new theory of liability for computer hackers who exploit hacked information for trading purposes (i.e. hacker-traders).

2- SEC vs Dubovoy: This case involved a complex group of hackers who sold stolen insider information to hackers (i.e. hackers-sellers).

Dorozhko and Dubovoy illustrate the great difficulties associated with bringing computer hackers within the borders of insider trading law.

The paper also outlines current proposals for and against holding computer hackers liable for fraud associated with securities trading. Even though the Second Circuit took the right decision in the Dorozhko case via expanding the liability to include hacker-traders, the definition of the court for “deceptive hacking” was still limited. Consequently, Dorozhko is unlikely to extend liability to include computer hackers who engage in more advanced schemes in the future.

The paper’s bottom line:

By definition, computer hackers are extremely creative. As such, it won’t be long until they can develop innovative cyber-trading schemes that can bypass liability, since they do not actually steal insider information, as they deceivably misrepresent their identities throughout the process of purchasing securities.

The paper introduces a unique approach to SEC’s affirmative representation theory to illustrate the shortcomings of Dorozhko’s case. Instead of trying to fit hackers inside the mould of the conventional concept of insider trading and to limit liability to computer hackers that steal insider information, courts should determine if a hacker utilized “deceptive or manipulative” techniques throughout the process of trading of securities. As such, liability could apply whenever a computer hacker launches a cyberattack during a transaction involving securities, whether or not insider information was stolen. However, it still obvious that Section 10(b) is not capable of covering all cyberattacks targeting securities, e.g. nondeceptive informed forms of cyber-trading. Whether or not the government should regulate such conduct represents an even harder question to answer.

Gavin McInnes Says Nazis Are As Real As Bigfoot, The Real Issue Is Islamic Terror Training for Tikes

A favorite GOP ploy by its political operatives (like Alex Jones, Roger Stone or Gavin McInnes) is to position themselves in public discourse as the saviors of the weak pathetic beta-male pussies on the Left against the Muslim hordes that are coming to America (and Europe), as there is eventually going to be a ‘mono y mono’ fight between Muslims and Christians in a war of religious supremacy.

Thus, the Liberals must realize that the doomsday clock is ticking and Jesus is going to come from a cloud with a Sword and axe to help the Duck Dynasty guys kill towel heads, like shooting zombies in the Walking Dead, or the better yet, the Rules Of Engagement scene where they kill civilians.

Wake up Libtards, the Christian brothers of all races with their AR-15s are the only line of defense against Muslims that want to throw gays off roof tops.

But amazingly these Liberal pussies that can’t defend themselves are snatching away the right to bear arms from Republicans!

One guy that promotes this nonsense is Gavin McInnes, who is back in the sights of RWW, although at this point he might as well be a paid spokesman for the Watchdogs of non-Communist Trans-LGBT filth.

Ironically, Gavin should be monitored 24/7 and should not be allowed to go within 500 yards of a playground.

I am deeply horrified that he has a conservative platform, as he likes to put on fishnet stockings, sing songs from the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and take black dildos up his asshole live on his TV show.

McInnes is the founder of the “Proud Boys” fraternity, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has recognized as a hate group, although I thought they would classify it under the banner of LBGTQ community.

Let’s hear this right wing retard speak.

“The news is so disproportionately focused on Bigfoot. Bigfoot doesn’t exist. Nazis are not a thing. Islam is a thing,” McInnes said.

Can you imagine if there was white nationalist training camps? If there was dozens of white nationalist training camps where they did relays, and they had guns, and there was a woman lashed for disobeying, and you heard that they were planning school shootings? Can you even imagine? I think if one student even drew such a scenario on a piece of paper in class, it would be international news.”

Actually, the MSM is talking about the Muslim School Shooter camps in such terms, without trying to apologize for the Islamic faith. Seriously, Gavin would you have heard about this compound if organizations like NBC had not reported it?

Gavin is just rehashing the same story that everyone has heard and he acting as if he is red pilling us by using his sarcastic voice and moving his dick-sucking lips.

The New Mexico compound was mysteriously destroyed by authorities! What! What! What?! I would say that seems too incompetent on the part of investigators; I thought there purpose was to collect evidence for prosecutors, not torch the fucking crime scene! Not to mention “authorities” demolished an underground tunnel in which a child’s remains were buried, destroying possible evidence of the murder of a 3 year old.

What branch of Government is NBC calling the authorities? What US government agency did this hack job? The MSM is never clear on a goddamn thing!

Following a court order, authorities seized an RV at the New Mexico compound, where five adults are believed to have been abusing 11 children and training them for school shootings, to dismantle the RV and tear down the walls. Why? Tell me MSM.

Now all that’s left of the compound is ammo and a bulletproof vest, which sit in piles of uncollected trash. Obviously, MSM is still trying to instill the idea that the compound was a post for a fight yet to come.

The court documents said that the Black Muslims at the compound at the New Mexico “..had trained the child in the use of an assault rifle in preparation for future school shootings.”

There is nothing in these documents that say the Muslims in New Mexico were planning a violent overthrow of the US government by shooting up schools. Plus, these children weren’t even enrolled in school, and even if they were, being a Black Muslim from Brooklyn isn’t exactly off the radar in New Mexico.

Siraj ibn Wahhaj, the leader of the group, is accused of kidnapping his 3-year-old son in December. A young boy’s remains were found on the compound, but the remains magically disappeared under the custody of the authorities.

Office of the Medical Investigator identified the remains as those of 3-year-old Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, the son of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, who is alleged to have kidnapped the boy from Georgia in December, a spokesman for the The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center said in a statement released by the Taos County Sheriff’s Office.”

After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing hoax, Imam Siraj Wahhaj served as a character witness on behave of the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel-Rahman, who was given a life sentence for being the mastermind behind terrorist plots in the United States.

Then there is this enigma; the New Mexico Judge in the case released the suspects accused of running a Jihadi Terrorist camp, despite pleas by sheriff and the FBI.

Zero Hegde:

New Mexico judge’s decision to free five suspects operating a heavily armed camp where prosecutors allege 11 malnourished children were being trained for jihad while on the FBI’s radar.

I really don’t know how to make heads or tails of this story but the Independent will tell us the unhindered truth without any political bias, right?

The Independent:

A child who was among a group of youngsters being held inside a rural New Mexico compound, said they were being trained by their captors to conduct school shootings.”

What proof? It’s this shit all over again.

The Independent wrote an article titled “Germany lifts ban on depicting Nazis in video games” on August 10, 2018, which was one of many hit jobs that the MSM created to insinuate that modern Germany is totally run by Neo-Nazis who are training to establish a new 3rd Reich.

The picture above was used in the article, depicting psychotic Aryan woman handing an axe to a Nazi-bot as if Germany is handing back to its people the right to be National Socialist again. Nothing can be further from the truth. The ban was lifted to make Nazi iconography a target in a first person shooter game, in a society that fears live shooters and “doesn’t tolerate hate.”

Long story short; don’t trust a damn thing the media has to say about any story.
