Vishwanath Akuthota, a 2017 MBA graduate of the College of Saint Rose in Albany returned to the school this February to bring his vengance to the school's computers (archived). Akuthota used a commercially available USB Killer device to fuck some shit up as he filmed himself using the device. The device took the 5 volt USB power output to charge its reserves and then delivered a -220 volt discharge, repeatedly. This attack vector works on any device too lazily and cheaply engineered to include surge protection for both positive and negative voltages built into the USB ports.
Akuthota is allege to have caused ~60,000 USD in damage.
The US/UN backed "government" in Tripoli has issued an arrest warrant for leader Khalifa Haftar who has lead a campaign capturing much of the country (archived). Haftar's forces have kept the "Government of National Accord" in Tripoli under fire for the past two weeks. Six of Haftar's officers have had arrest warrants issued for launching airstrikes at "government" positions. Issuing arrest warrants in the face of airstrikes and an active seige demonstrates a strong committment to Pantsuitist form on the part of the National Accordist government as well as a lack of… actual national accord.
The "Brexit Party", Nigel Farage's successor to the UKIP, is moving experiencing polling movement that suggests a win in upcoming European Parliament elections (archived). These EU elections happening after the Brexit deadline but before the new Macronist, maybe Brexit deadline.
Meanwhile French Despot Macron is promising to rebuild Notre Dame in only five years while making the landmark construction "more beautiful" ensuring future visitors will only ever be able to view the Ruins of Notre Dame. With the investigation ongoing, arson speculation is being branded "conspiracy theory" material in mainstream Pantsuitist venues despite the recent trend of church arsons and desecrations in France (archived). A Google censorship tool flagged footage of the Notre Dame fire as "9/11 Conspiracy" content as well (archived).
The iconic Cathedral of Notre Dame is burning and the spire has collapsed. This is the latest in a recent string of fires at historic French churches. France's second largest church after Notre Dame, Saint Sulpice burned in an arson on March 17th, the Catholic holiday of Saint Patrick's day (archived). The fire at Notre Dame striking during the Catholic Holy Week may be a coincidence, but presenting the fire as an accident in the current environment would be a very hard sell.
Meanwhile on the secular front, this past weekend the Yellow Vest movement was once again violenced by French despot Macron for a 22nd consecutive week (archived). John Bolton has yet to propose a regime change intervention in France.
Years after Hillary Clinton created a power vacuum in Libya by ordering the Arab Springing of that country's last effectual government the fallout continues with a "rebel" group assaulting US backed "government" troop positions using warplanes (archived). As the US continues pushing for new "regime change" in Venezuela, the long to mid term results from "regime change" interventions continues to be anything by promising for those aligning themselves with groups recognized as "governments" by the US.
Numerous Oregon police officers were called to respond to the calls of a panicked woman afraid of a bathroom invader. Multiple Sheriff's department deputies and at least one K-9 officer were diverted to attend to the situation. Guns drawn the agents of the criminal US government opened the bathroom door only to discover a floor cleaning robot trapped in the bathroom (archived).
International malaise among US allies purchasing F-35 fighters continues as Japan loses one of their few over the Pacific, an event that has lead them to ground the rest of their F-35 fleet (archived). Other US allies including Italy are looking to escape the costly boondoggle while NATO member Turkey managed to escape the program by prioritizing the purchase of state of the art Russian air defense missiles over the fighters of a utility so questionable the US has had to resort to purchasing foreign turboprop aircraft to handle a portion of the F-35's designed mission.
This weekend the time kept by the USG's GPS constellation will hit its 1024th week since its 10 bit register last rolled over in 1999 (archived). This raises the potential for lazily implemented devices depending on GPS disciplined time to behave in rather undisciplined manners.
Long teased, the US finally suspended F-35 related deliveries to Turkey after realizing that Turkey was serious when Turkey decided Russian missiles were a better value proposition than US warplanes (archived). Other NATO allies including Italy have been looking for ways out of the F-35 money pit as well.
USG prosecutors are increasingly turning intra-marital disputes into federal cases for the purpose of disarming American males (archived).
Meanwhile, Illinois is looking to test legislation mandating serializing handgun ammunition with no grandfather clause allowing private possession of ammunition purchased before the serialization requirements go into effect (archived). The text of the proposed bill singles out .22 caliber rimfire ammunition as subject to the serialization requirement, and each round of traditional unserialized ammunition would count as a seperate offense. This is a serious problem for target shooters who buy .22 long rifle by the 500 round brick. The full text of the Illinois proposal scheduled for a hearing in committee tomorrow is presented below: Continue reading
