Federal prosecutors weigh charges against Democratic powerbroker in Manafort-linked probe | 14 Sept 2018 | Federal prosecutors in New York are weighing criminal charges against former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig as part of an investigation into whether he failed to register as a foreign agent in a probe that is linked to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to sources familiar with the matter. In addition, these sources said, prosecutors in the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York are considering taking action against powerhouse law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, where Craig was a partner during the activity under examination. Prosecutors are considering a civil settlement with the firm or a deferred prosecution agreement with Skadden, these sources said.

Six nuclear power plants are in Hurricane Florence's path, officials say

Six nuclear power plants are in Hurricane Florence's path, officials say | 12 Sept 2018 | Federal officials expressed confidence the six nuclear power plants in Hurricane Florence's path are [allegedly] safe, but some experts aren't so sure, warning that flooding and torrential rains could overwhelm their defenses. The six nuclear power plants in North and South Carolina sit directly in the storm's projected path, according to Mary Catherine Green, spokeswoman for Duke Energy, which owns all six. Duke's Brunswick Nuclear Plant and its Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant near Raleigh, both in North Carolina, are the closest to where the hurricane is forecast to make landfall, Green said.

Dianne Feinstein Withholding Brett Kavanaugh Document From Fellow Judiciary Committee Democrats

Dianne Feinstein Withholding Brett Kavanaugh Document From Fellow Judiciary Committee Democrats | 12 Sept 2018 | Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have privately requested to view a Brett Kavanaugh-related document in possession of the panel's top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein, but the senior California senator has so far refused, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation. The specific content of the document, which is a letter from a California constituent, is unclear, but Feinstein's refusal to share the letter has created tension on the committee, particularly after Feinstein largely took a back seat to her more junior colleagues last week, as they took over Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings with protests around access to documents. The letter took a circuitous route to Feinstein, the top-ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. It purportedly describes an incident that was relayed to someone affiliated with Stanford University, who authored the letter and sent it to Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Democrat who represents the area.

Hurricane Florence: Outer bands lashing North Carolina coast

Hurricane Florence: Outer bands lashing North Carolina coast | 14 Sept 2018 | Hurricane Florence already has inundated coastal streets with ocean water and left tens of thousands without power, and forecasters say conditions will only worsen as the hulking storm slogs inland. Screaming winds bent trees toward the ground and raindrops flew sideways as Florence's leading edge whipped the Carolina coast Thursday to begin an onslaught that could last for days, leaving a wide area under water from both heavy downpours and rising seas. The storm's intensity diminished as it neared land, with winds dropping to around 90 mph by nightfall. But that, combined with the storm's slowing forward movement and heavy rains, had Gov. Roy Cooper warning of an impending disaster.

The deal is expected to be announced in court Friday, but it remains unclear whether Manafort has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors or is simply conceding to a guilty plea...according to three sources with knowledge of the discussions. Manafort and his most senior defense attorneys spent more than four hours Thursday in discussions with a team of special prosecutors who are involved in the ongoing investigation into whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

US senator claims Britain's MI6 is planning a fake chemical weapons attack on Syria

US senator claims Britain's MI6 is planning a fake chemical weapons attack on Syria | 10 Sept 2018 | Virginia state senator Richard Black (R), fresh off a sit down with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, turned up on Arab TV last week making an extraordinary [albeit factual] claim about one of the closest allies of the US. Mr Black said Britain's MI6 intelligence service was planning a chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people, which it would then blame on Mr Assad. "Around four weeks ago, we knew that British intelligence was working towards a chemical attack in order to blame the Syrian government, to hold Syria responsible," Mr Black said on Al Mayadeen, an Arab news channel based in Beirut. Mr Black said later that he meant the British were planning not to carry out an attack themselves, but to either direct rebels to do so or stage a phony attack, with actors posing as victims. Mr Black also said some chemical attacks previously reported to have occurred in Syria were British fakes, pulled off with help from volunteer first responders known as "White Helmets".

Netherlands ends support for Syrian 'rebel' groups, including one labeled 'terrorist' by Dutch govt | 12 Sept 2018 | The Netherlands will end its support for Syrian militants, since the program did not yield the "expected" results. Earlier, journalists found one of the groups had been labeled 'terrorist' by the Dutch justice department. "The opportunity to quickly change the situation [in Syria] is extremely small," reads the letter the lower house of the parliament by Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok and Minister for Foreign Trade Sigrid Kaag, announcing the end of support programs for the militants in Syria. The support for militants is set to end immediately, yet the White Helmets will [insanely] be funded until December, according to the document.

White Helmets making films of 'chemical attacks' with children in Idlib - Russian military | 12 Sept 2018 | The White Helmets [Western-backed terrorist group, working with al-Qaeda] have shot at least nine videos intended to serve as proof in accusations that the Syrian government conducted a chemical weapon attack using chlorine against civilians in Idlib, the Russian military claims. A number of Middle Eastern TV channels and a regional affiliate of a US broadcaster "have shot nine videos, in Jisr al-Shughur city in Idlib province, of a staged chemical attack" that will be blamed on the Syrian government, the Russian Reconciliation Center In Syria said in a statement on Wednesday. All videos show activists from the White Helmets group, which purportedly provides assistance to civilians, the statement claims.

17 years after 9/11, al-Qaeda rebranded by US government and media as besieged rebels

17 years after 9/11, al-Qaeda rebranded by US government and media as besieged rebels | 11 Sept 2018 | Seventeen years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the US government and media outlets have decided that al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] is now a rebel group worthy of our sympathy. As somber newspaper headlines mark the anniversary of the devastating attacks, some commentators have pointed out that the terrorist group accused of murdering 3,000 Americans seventeen years ago is now occupying northeastern Syria -- with the US threatening to take military action if the "rebels" are evicted from the region by the Syrian army and its allies. The United States has spent an estimated $1.5 trillion on its Global War Against Terrorism, launched in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, but the United States seems to find itself providing diplomatic cover -- not to mention excellent press -- to the terrorists that it once vowed to eradicate.

Fahrenheit 2018: Amazon Begins Banning Controversial Books

Fahrenheit 2018: Amazon Begins Banning Controversial Books | 11 Sept 2011 | Amazon has officially entered dystopian territory by banning an entire range of dating advice books because they violate unspecified "content guidelines." Controversial author Roosh Valizadeh revealed the ban last night, tweeting, "Amazon has removed 9 of my books from sale, including my newest book Game, which was ranking in the top 1000. They won't tell me the specific reason. Many of the books were on sale for 5+ years." Valizadeh later received an email from Amazon informing him that "content guidelines" were broken, but was again given no specifics. "I feel like I'm in a Franz Kafka novel," he tweeted.

Preparing the WTC for Destruction

Preparing the WTC for Destruction | 14 Sept 2011 | What are the odds that an avant garde Austrian art group was given access to the 91st floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center to remove windows, erect platforms outside the structure and leave material that could only be viewed by a close passing helicopter on a clear day? Well, they are 100%. What are the odds the art troupe are named after an explosive called Gelatin? What are the odds this group is sponsored by a cultural group who has an Israeli agent as a member who lived blocks from Mohammed Atta the terrorist who hated modern art and crashed an aircraft into it? Well, they are 100%. What are the odds that the markings on the cases that lined the walls of the space they were using were the same markings used for a special fuse holder assembly that allows for complex wiring? Well, they are 100%, too. What are the odds the New York Times actually published a full-page feature in August even showing pictures of the artists at work? Yes,100%.

It added the intelligence came from local residents of Jisr al-Shughur. It also said that an Islamist group was provided with two canisters of a "chlorine-based chemical" for the purpose of the operation. The Russian military said the footage would include scenes of White Helmets operatives treating supposed victims of an apparent barrel bomb chemical weapon attack by Damascus.

Suspicious Package Reports Continue In Connecticut Amid Federal Probe

Suspicious Package Reports Continue In Connecticut Amid Federal Probe | 07 Sept 2018 | Reports of suspicious packages continued Friday, days after federal authorities said Gary Joseph Gravelle was under investigation in connection with the discovery of a series of white powder packages and threatening communications starting Wednesday.

Trump expected to declassify Carter Page and Bruce Ohr documents

Trump expected to declassify Carter Page and Bruce Ohr documents | 09 Sept 2018 | President Trump is expected to declassify, as early as this week, documents covering the U.S. government's surveillance of Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the investigative activities of senior Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr, according to allies of the president. Republicans on the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees believe the declassification will permanently taint the Trump-Russia investigation by showing the investigation was illegitimate to begin with... They allege that Bruce Ohr played an improper intermediary role between the Justice Department, British spy Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS -- the opposition research firm that produced the Trump-Russia dossier, funded by Democrats. (Ohr's wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS on Russia-related matters during the presidential election -- a fact that Ohr did not disclose on federal forms.) And they further allege that the Obama administration improperly spied on Carter Page -- all to take down Trump.

Stephen Paddock had $1.3million held across fourteen bank accounts when he allegedly launched deadly shooting spree

Stephen Paddock had $1.3million held across fourteen bank accounts when he allegedly launched deadly shooting spree --When police raided his hotel room following shooting they found $41,000 worth of weapons and firearm accessories | 09 Sept 2018 | The [alleged] Las Vegas gunman had a mysterious fortune worth more than $1.3million held in separate bank accounts at the time of his shooting spree. Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, also owned a shocking collection of weapons and firearm accessories, found in his home and his Mandalay Bay hotel room where he launched his attack, worth $62,000. Las Vegas police said Paddock kept his money in 14 bank accounts and in his last two years of life he splashed out $1.5million, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. It's not clear whether authorities will sell his arsenal of weapons, which is still in FBI custody. The filing only mentioned 13 accounts but Las Vegas police previously reported he had 14 bank accounts. It's not clear why there's a discrepancy in the number of bank accounts reported. [Apparently, being a weapons dealer for the CIA/FBI pays very well...until you're just the latest false flag patsy.]
