A young woman with a crush on Dylan Storm Roof was entrapped by the FBI and hit with terrorism charges (archived). As per their usual modus operandi, the USG stooges further isolated and aggravated the socially isolated young woman until their became her entire social circle after which, the stooges arrested her in Toledo, Ohio. Earlier this week, also in Toledo, an FBI radicalized ISIS sympathizer was arrested after being similarly prepped for captivity by USG stooges (archived).
The "Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers" announced their retraction of 29 articles published within the past two years in their journal "IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility" (archived). Curiously the withdrawn articles are not identified. The IEEE is pinning the retractions on some sort of misconduct involving three volunteer editors, also unnamed, who the group saw fit to bar from further membership. Apparently in US Academia's post-post modern age enumerating problems is fine, but naming them is not.
The Tumblr app has been removed from the Apple App store over the Verizon subidary's hosting of child porn images (archived). As child pornography is at the same time a high priority USG prosecution target and only of interest as an article of consumption to "law enforcement" officers and bureaucrats, it remains to be seen how many cops and bureaucrats Verizon communications will give up for prosecution… provided their own executives manage to avoid lockup.
In their latest auction, the United States Marshall Service will be putting aproximately 660 on the block in six lots of 100 Bitcoins and one lot of "60.xxxx Bitcoins" (archived). The auction flyer lists a number of civil and criminal cases, and they make a point of emphasizing that the fiat account details they published for accepting payment will not accept requests for ACH debit transactions. The three figure amount of Bitcoins being auctioned in a 2018 USMS show has fallen substantially from the five figure numbers they advertised in 2015.
Two weeks into the effort to capture the local cannabis market launched by a criminal organization referring to themselves as the "Canadian Government", they are without product to sell (archived). New actors in the cannabis market aligned with this upstart Canadian cartel are failing to keep up with demand for the most easily cultivated crop of of commercial value ever developed. Physical store fronts are reducing hours and closing for much of the week as they face a complete absence of any product to sell. The shortages are not of any particular kind or grade of cannabis in a way that suggests misreading demand in a selective consumer market. The shortages are of any weed at all.
The winners in this situation are the black and gray market actors satisfying the market they have long supplied in the face of a coordinated bullying campaign to rob them of their livelihoods. As this situation continues, the new Canadian cartel is faced with four options:
- They surrender their failed efforts to be a cartel, admit their mistakes, and open the market up by tossing the rulebook.
- They reach out to the people they tried to squash in a spirit of friendship and hope their efforts are met with forgiveness.
- They continune their effortful ignoring of the black and gray markets in the end writing off their own cartel play as a public health service achieving a Uruguay situation.
- The claws come out and in the name of revenue "legalization" is made more oppresive by tax agents than prohibition ever was.
It is still early in the game, and there is little information on how this criminal organization which decided to get into the drug trade is going to play the collision between their plans and reality. However, persons at risk if the claws do come out are advised to maintain their operational security without relaxing simply because "legalization" is the word of the day. It is necessary to remember the enemy is indeed a criminal organization that decided to attempt capturing the local drug trade.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is begging China to "act like a normal nation" and avoid capturing developing nations in a debt trap leading to decades of pain widely distributed around the world (archived). This appeal seemingly crafted to tear at the heartstrings is void of a certain necessary context: Trapping developing nations in debt and amplifying their pain is the US and EU's schtick and they would very much like China to step back and get out of their way.
Chinese foreign investment isn't always without controversy where it occurs, but it tends to have a transparency the old IMF scheme lacked. Raw materials for otherwise inaccessible finished goods is a rather kind deal compared to what was on offer before.
3D printing enthusiast Cody Wilson has been charged in Tavis Country, Texas with "sexual assault of a child" after allegedly paying a sex worker he met through "SugarDaddyMeet.com" 500 USD to have sex with him in a hotel room (archived). Pantsuit media outlets are referring to the sex worker as the "accuser" and she is cited in the affidavit making allegations against her customer. Police are citing surveilance footage of his vehicle at the meetup location as evidence. In the past Cody Wilson pretended to Bitcoin involvement in collaboration with Amir Taaki.
According to the US Department of "Justice", Andrei Tiurin/TYURIN was abducted in Georgia and extradited to Manhattan where he will face Preet Bharara's replacement Geoff Berman (archived). The abduction victim Tiurin is accused of digitally humiliating many US banks, other financial institutions, and financial news services.
Today the ongoing discontent of the criminal organization known as the United States Government over China's refusal to share samples H7N9 strain flu viruses frothed up in pantsuit publications (archived). H7N9 is an avian flu strain seen in 2013, and as with other avain strains there have been some number of homo sapiens that have fallen ill from the virus.
China's reluctance to share is understandable considering that shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States a weaponized strain of anthrax cultivated by the United States Government was deployed in a manner that intentionally incited further terror within the United States itself. Trusting that same criminal organization which either negligently or complicitly allowed its bioweapons to be deployed in anger on its own soil with a potentially much more virulent pathogen would be simply irresponsible.
A report investigating a Denial of Service botnet has revealed a substantial number of wireless gateways emplaced in emergency vehicles and around numerous USG infrasctructure sites that are full of holes (archived). These ready bake botnet nodes are embedded in networks as varied as airports, hydrogen refueling stations, and ambulance fleets. In addition to being recruited into producing poor internet weather, when installed in vehicles they can allow tracking the vehicle with sufficient resolution to guess what kind of vehicle: police, fire fighting, etc is ferrying around the vulnerable wireless gateway. Fixed installations of the vulnerable gateways has in several cases been documented as motivated by a desire to provision emergency access to the networks so compromised by the device's installaton.
