KKKalifornia Freshman Pantsuit Congresswoman Caught Breaking New House "No Sex With Staff" Rule

Katie Hill, a freshman congress critter sitting in the vice chair of the "House Committee on Oversight and Reform" appears to have flagrantly violated a rule passed in February 2018 forbidding members of the House from sexing the staff (archived, archived). The no sex with staff rule as passed by the then GOP dominated house in response to the #metoo moral panic. Katie Hill of the Hill is alleged to have maintained sexual relations with at least two staffers, one of each sex.

Her present occupation of the Vice Chair of the particular committee she does further complicates internal USG power struggles playing out.

A circulating yet multilated photograph of an adult woman alleged to be the congresswoman grooming her subordinate in the nude is presented below:

USG And Israel Moving Towards "Mutual Defense" Treaty As Hawks Continue Pushing To Bomb Iran

Reports have begun emerging that suggest the USG and Israel are moving towards a "mutual defense" agreement, provided Bibi survives today's elections (archived). This movement comes as hawks inside the USG, Israel, and Saudi Arabia are escalating their anti-Iran talk in the wake of a Yemeni rebel attack using 80's vintage drones which crippled Saudi oil production over the weekend (archived).

One notable "mutual defense" agreement of historical interest had Britain opening the second World War after Germany intervened to stop the Polish government's genocide of ethnic Germans in Danzig (archived). With Israel already conducting airstrikes on its neighbors, it is very hard to see the move as anything other than a committment to further antagonize the Middle East.

MIT Media Lab Haunted By Epstein

MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito is out after revelations that the late Pantsuitist Jeffery Epstein was intimately involved with the lab and the extent of the relationship has been actively concealed (archived). Shortly before Epstein's death the late Marvin Minsky of MIT was one of the names loudly declared in the press as a beneficiary of Epstein's networking.

Macri Begins Implementing Capital Controls As Foreign Currency Reserves Exhaust

Three weeks after the prospect of a Kirchner-Fernandez government gutted the value of the Argentine peso, current Argentine president Macri's increasingly Kirchner-esque response to the crisis has hit a new milestone (archived). The current regime has declared Argentinos may buy no more than 10,000 USD in a month and that businesses in Argentina submit their USD purchase plans to the government lest they are determined to be "hoarding" USD.

This comes after Argentina has spent 21 days actively fighting the market and exhausting its foreign currency reserves by trying to prop up the Peso Argentina's value near 60 to the USD when the market clearly understands that the Peso Argentino's value should be far lower. The remaining reserves nominally belonging to the Argentine Central Bank are encumbered as collateral for loans and almost certain to be forfeited in the coming default.

Meanwhile, publications in the Northern Argentina calling itself the US lead by Forbes had been running pieces written by Peronists explaining why Argentina can't be in as bad of a position as its behavior is forcing it into (archived). At last they had been until today when they had to admit currency controls are back.

Pantsuit Social Engineers Begin Calling For Invasion Of Brazil Over Seasonal Wildfires

Leftist climate stooge Franklin Foer wrote a piece in The Atlantic calling for military intervention in Brazil with the aim of usurping democratically elected President Jair Bolsonaro and seizing control of the Brazilian Amazon for an ambiguously defined "international community" (archived). Last year US-based left/Pantsuits attempted to interfere in Brazil's internal politics in the run up the the presidential election with both the New York Times and Facebook attempting to prevent Bolsonaro's democratic election.

This year, for what appear to be entirely pantsuitist political reasons, the popular media in the US and Europe have decided to panick over seasonal wildfires in the remote Amazon. European Pantsuitist leaders, citing data from Brazil's own satellites, are derailing a pending EU-Mercosur trade deal over the wildfires constituting a violation of some sort of "environmental commitments" Brazil agreed to. Other European governments including Norway's pre-emtively stopped sending Brazil aid dollars before Bolsonaro's government could attempt to mobilizing a fire fighting and containment response.

As of press time there has been no organized outrage or regime change efforts over the far more numerous wild fires currently burning in Angola under the government of João Lourenço nor the Congo under Félix Tshisekedi's government. For some reason the similarly patterned seasonal wildfires afflicting the Bolivian Amazon under the government of Evo Morales don't appear to merit calls for regime change from the "international community" either. The wildfires that routinely sweep populated areas of California including last year's Malibu blaze, where far more logistical support is available to firefighting operations than the remote Amazon, also somehow failed to produce calls for deposing the Californian government.

Brazil has a population of more than 200 million people, a space program, and is a net exporter of military technology to the United States.

Impotent USG Unseals "Warrant" For Liberated Iranian Tanker

The USG has unsealed the "warrant" it issued for the seizure of the Iranian tanker released by Gibraltar yesterday. Far more interesting than the unsealed warrant is the press release announcing the unsealing of the warrant which is at the same time triumphantly self congratulating while including one very important caveat, bolded in the text of the press release reproduced below:

WASHINGTON – A seizure warrant and forfeiture complaint were unsealed today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia alleging that Oil Tanker “Grace 1,” all petroleum aboard it and $995,000.00 are subject to forfeiture based on violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), bank fraud statute, and money laundering statute, as well as separately the terrorism forfeiture statute.

John Demers, Assistant Attorney General, National Security Division, Jessie K. Liu, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Steven W. Cagen, Special Agent in Charge, Denver, Colorado, Homeland Security Investigations; and Jill Sanborn, Special Agent in Charge, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Federal Bureau of Investigation, made the announcement.

The documents allege a scheme to unlawfully access the U.S. financial system to support illicit shipments to Syria from Iran by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a designated foreign terrorist organization. The scheme involves multiple parties affiliated with the IRGC and furthered by the deceptive voyages of the Grace 1. A network of front companies allegedly laundered millions of dollars in support of such shipments.

A seizure warrant and a forfeiture complaint are merely allegations. The burden to prove forfeitability in a civil forfeiture proceeding is upon the government.

In announcing the forfeiture complaint and seizure warrant, U.S. Attorney Liu commended the work of those who investigated the case from HSI and FBI. They also expressed appreciation for the Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs for its assistance in this case. Finally, they acknowledged the work of Assistant U.S. Attorneys Zia Faruqui and Brian Hudak and National Security Division Trial Attorney David Lim who are handling this matter, with assistance from Paralegal Elizabeth Swinec and Brian Rickers, and Legal Assistant Jessica McCormick from the U.S. Attorney’s Office from the District of Columbia.

As Mircea Popescu very helpfully pointed out yesterday in response to this failure of the USG to impose its will:

get ready for a lot more "over usg objections" once Trilema opened the floodgates.

British Gibraltar Releases Iranian Tanker Over US Objections

The Iranian tanker captured by British forces and held in the Queendom's Gibraltar has been released (archived). The USG tried to intervene by having the US "Department of Justice" file a petition with local authorities to seize the vessel for themselves. That effort failed.
