In a piece published as part of their end of the week newsdump the NYTimes wrote a piece concerning Deputy US Attorney General Rodney Rosenstein's stalled coup attempt against US President Donald Trump (archived). According to the story after Rosenstein authored a memo recommending James Comey's firing Rosenstein solicited persons1 with access to the White House to surveil the president while Rosenstein himself would gaslight the president. Then according to the plan Rosenstein and conspirators would use recordings of a man reacting in anger to having been gaslit as evidence of "incapacity" and mount a coup from there.
Given the Pantsuit venue in which the report appeared, the plot appears to have been unsuccessful to the point its supporters had to escalate the gaslighting by collaborating with Pantsuit media to publish the plot, likely with critical details altered in order to bait the president into acting clumsily before he cements hold of the Senate in this fall's midterm elections. Earlier this month the NYTimes published a piece (archived) claiming to be from a Trump administration insider sabotaging President Trump's agenda from the inside. While the earlier piece is as likely to be fanfiction as it is the daydreams of a deskriding pantsuit manlet in a government office, the point of publishing these pieces is clearly to bait Trump into premature retaliation before the next congress is sworn in.

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.
Russian President Putin and Jewish Leader Bibi Netanyahu are offering measured, concilliatory words after Israeli planes conducting air strikes in Syria used a Russian Il-20 observation plane as radar cover leading to its destruction by Syrian air defenses (archived). Soon after the plane went down Russia was swift to condemn Israel for their role in the destruction of the planeand loss of the crew.
Israel has been intervening in this Syrian civil war through airstrikes and other means with the apparent goal of escalating and prolonging the conflict.
The International Monetary Fund has issued a report containing numerous threats against the Marshall Islands over the latter's early stage explorations into reducing their economy's USD dependence (archived). After being forcibly captured by the USG during in the 1940's and used for target practice while the USG was developing nuclear weapons, the Marshall Islands achieved a negotiated dependent-independence from the US while maintaining the bezzle-USD as their currency.
For much of the history of money in the Marshall Islands, the USD worked because they recieved USD reparations over being used for target practice, but those payments are about to run out. Without that stable ingress of Unified Standard Dosidoes the Marshall Islands is asking themselves what to do while the USG backed IMF tells them to fuck themselves.
Today while at a campaign event Brasilero Presidential frontrunner and Great Again candidate Jair Bolsonaro was gravely injured when a layabout stabbed him as he was being carried on the shoulders of his supporters (archived). The socialist fiend was identified as 40 year old piece of shit Adélio Bispo de Oliveira (archived). Bolsonaro remains alive in critical condition at the time of this writing. Adélio Bispo de Oliveira's favored candidate, the corrupt motherfucker Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva remains in prison.
Reports are emerging that Serbia has begun negotations with breakaway Kosovo in order to swap land along the border so that a number of ethnic Serbs won't have to suffer the indignity of living in Kosovo anymore (archived). Serbia and breakaway Kosovo were functionally separated during a conflict which saw the Clinton Global Initiative1 engage in widespread bombing. During that conflict the Serbs downed at least one "stealth" aircraft under Clinton's command.
The National Police in Paraguay are reporting that 42 FN FAL battle rifles in their armory have been swapped for replicas (archived). During the Cold War the FN FAL was referred to as the "the right arm of the Free World" despite during that period having largely been used by colonial powers in efforts to impose their will on smaller groups that said "no". Firing a full power 7.62 mm cartridge the FN FAL enjoys a far greater effective range than the small bore reduced power arms branded "assault rifles" now favored by major state actors. At present the FN FAL is used in some role by non-state actors in every ongoing conflict with bleeding casualties that matters.
The replicas are reportedly made of wood.
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.
Reality Winner, a former NSA contract worker who made the mistake of leaking to Omidyar and Greenwald's honey trap The Intercept, has been sentenced to 63 months in prison after pleaing guilty. Reality Winner was identified through "anti-counterfeiting dots" which were helpfully preserved by The Intercept when they published pdf scans of the printed secrets she delivered to them.
Reality Winner will be spending her incarceration at Federal Medical Center, Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas at her own request. The length of the sentence is anomalously long for an unauthorized disclosure case. This demonstrates once again that a guilty plea is not a bargain.
Intel has begun attaching a license clause prohibiting comparative benchmarking to its CPU microcode updates (archived). Intel has spent the past year deluged with reports of critical flaws in their CPUs related to speed optimizations which fundamentally compromise the ability of their chips to be secure, especially in multi user systems. This fumbling by Intel to supress comparative benchmarks between patched and unpatched chips is only their latest attempt to paper over how much of their chips' fradulent speed advantage is lost with anything resembling effective mitigations1 for these engineered holes.
