Russian Nationals, Cyber Scheme Infected Thousands of Computers

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Charges Announced in Malware Conspiracy

Indictment

The case appears to have begun in 2011. The DOJ has connected Yakubets and Turashev to cyberattacks as recently as March of this year, according to the indictment. As a part of its investigation, the U.S. in 2010 transmitted a mutual legal assistance treaty request to Russia, and according to Bowdich, the Russian government was “helpful to a point.” Once the hackers were in possession of the bank credentials, they would use “money mules” to funnel the funds into foreign bank accounts. In one case, an employee of a Pennsylvania school district clicked on a graphic in a phishing email sent by Yakubets and Turashev, and the two later attempted to transfer nearly $1 million from the district’s bank account to a bank in Ukraine. The malware was deployed by Yakubets and Turashev infected tens of thousands of computers across North America and Europe, including two banks, a school district, four Pennsylvania companies, and a North Carolina firearms manufacturer.

Two Russian Nationals Engaged in Cybercrime Scheme That Infected Tens of Thousands of Computers

The U.S. Department of Justice today joined with the U.S. Department of State and the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency in charging two Russian nationals with a vast and long-running cybercrime spree that stole from thousands of individuals and organizations in the United States and abroad.

Along with several co-conspirators, Maksim V. Yakubets and Igor Turashev are charged with an effort that infected tens of thousands of computers with a malicious code called Bugat. Once installed, the computer code, also known as Dridex or Cridex, allowed the criminals to steal banking credentials and funnel money directly out of victims’ accounts. The long-running scheme involved a number of different code variants, and later version also installed ransomware on victim computers. The criminals then demanded payment in cryptocurrency for returning vital data or restoring access to critical systems.

Dridex is typically spread through phishing emails. In its early phases, these messages were sent in massive, widespread campaigns. More recent attacks have been more strategic—specifically targeting businesses and organizations that have valuable computer systems and access to significant financial resources.  The malware is usually delivered through a link or attachment that appears to come from a trusted source.

“Although their realm is a digital one, this is one of the world’s largest organized crime groups,” said FBI Supervisory Special Agent Adam Lawson of the Major Cyber Crimes Unit. “They are personally getting rich, and new organizations and individuals are being victimized every day.”

Turashev and Yakubets were both indicted in the Western District of Pennsylvania on conspiracy to commit fraud, wire fraud, and bank fraud, among other charges. Yakubets was also tied to charges of conspiracy to commit bank fraud issued in the District of Nebraska after investigators were able to connect him to the indicted moniker “aqua” from that case, which involved another malware variant known as Zeus.

Assisted in some cases by money mules who funneled the stolen funds through U.S. bank accounts before shipping the money overseas, the group stole or extorted tens of millions of dollars from victims. Among those affected was a Pennsylvania school district that saw $999,000 wired out of its accounts and an oil company that lost more than $2 million.

The FBI, in partnership with the State Department’s Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program, also announced a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to the arrest of Yakubets, who is alleged to be the leader of the scheme. The reward is the largest ever offered for a cyber criminal.

“The actions highlighted today, which represent a continuing trend of cyber-criminal activity emanating from Russian actors, were particularly damaging as they targeted U.S. entities across all sectors and walks of life,” said FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich. “The FBI, with the assistance of private industry and our international and U.S. government partners, is sending a strong message that we will work together to investigate and hold all criminals accountable.”

According to the charges, the co-conspirators distributed the malware through email phishing campaigns. In the early years, these messages were sent in massive, widespread campaigns. More recent attacks have been more strategic—specifically targeting businesses and organizations that have valuable computer systems and access to significant financial resources.

Victims were tricked into opening a document or clicking on a graphic or link that appeared to be from a legitimate source. The link or attachment downloaded the malicious code onto the user’s machine, where it could also spread to any networked computers.

According to FBI Supervisory Special Agent Steven Lampo, this campaign deployed a stealth type of malware designed to avoid detection by antivirus software. “The full program does too much and is too big to avoid detection,” Lampo said. The smaller piece of code, however, can inject itself into the running processes of the machine—beginning a process that allows the full suite of malware to load onto the machine or network. The malware’s creators were constantly creating new variants of the code to avoid antivirus tools.

GOP War Room v. Pelosi’s Impeachment?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Do the Republicans in both Houses of Congress need to collaborate with the Department of Justice to create a war room to counter the Democrat’s impeachment operation? Yes, and there are several legal and factual avenues to explore. But one, in particular, is already in play. In fact, it has been in play since at least 2016, long before former Vice President Joe Biden announced his candidacy for President of the United States.

The Democrats for months have been alleging that President Trump invited a foreign power into our 2020 election process by asking a favor of the Ukraine President. They additionally charge President Trump for publicly asking China for the same thing. Remember, President Trump said in the phone call: can you do US a favor, OUR COUNTRY has been through a lot. That is not a personal favor for President Trump but rather a service to our nation as a whole. Given the decades of rampant corruption in Ukraine and frankly in our own country, you would think the Democrats would want the same favor when it comes to money-laundering and interference in our election(s).

So, let us go back to that one avenue already in play since 2016 and that is Rosemont Seneca and Bohai Capital.

For example, one of the companies involved in the Henniges transaction was a billion dollar private investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). BHR was formed in November of 2013 by a merger between the Chinese-government linked firm, Bohai Capital, and a company named Rosemont Seneca Partners. Rosemont Seneca was reportedly formed in 2009 by Hunter Biden, the son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, Chris Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, and others.3The direct involvement of Mr. Hunter Biden and Mr. Heinz in the acquisition of Henniges by the Chinese government creates a potential conflict of interest. Both are directly related to high-ranking Obama administration officials. The Department of State, then under Mr. Kerry’s leadership, is also a CFIUS member and played a direct role in the decision to approve the Henniges transaction. The appearance of potential conflicts in this case is particularly troubling given Mr. Biden’s and Mr. Heinz’s history of investing in and collaborating with Chinese companies, including at least one posing significant national security concerns. This history with China pre and post-dates the 2015 Henniges transaction. For example, in December of 2013, one month after Rosemont Seneca’s merger with Bohai Capital to form BHR, Hunter Biden reportedly flew aboard Air Force Two with his father, then-Vice President Biden to China.4 While in China, he helped arrange for Jonathan Li, CEO of Bohai Capital, to “shake hands” with Vice-President Biden.5 Afterward, Hunter Biden met with Li for reportedly a “social meeting.”6 After the China trip, BHR’s business license was approved.7 In December of 2014, BHR also reportedly became an investor in China General Nuclear Power Corp (CGN), a state-owned energy company involved in building nuclear reactors.8 In April of 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) charged CGN with conspiracy to unlawfully engage and participate in the production and development of special nuclear material outside the United States which could cause “significant damage to our national security.”9 Then, in August of 2015, Gemini Investments Limited, another Chinese-government linked entity, purchased 75 percent of Rosemont Reality, a sister company of Rosemont 3 Seneca.10 Rosemont Realty became Gemini Rosemont and it reportedly focused on purchasing American real estate.11In September 2015, BHR joined with a subsidiary of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) to acquire Henniges for $600 million. AVIC acquired 51 percent of the company, and BHR acquired 49 percent.12 According to reports, the acquisition of Henniges by BHR and AVIC was the “biggest Chinese investment into US automotive manufacturing assets to date.”13 Because the acquisition gave Chinese companies direct control of Henniges’ anti-vibration technologies, the transaction was reviewed by CFIUS. CFIUS approved the transaction despite reports that in 2007, years before BHR teamed up with AVIC’s subsidiary, AVIC was reportedly involved in stealing sensitive data regarding the Joint Strike Fighter program. AVIClater reportedly incorporated the stolen data into China’s J-20 and J-31 aircraft.14

You will notice numbered footnotes in the text above. That text is part of a letter sent by Senator Grassley (Senate Finance Committee) to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin this past August. It is uncertain if Treasury responded to the letter. But hold on there is more.

In May of 2016, the Wall Street Journal had an interesting piece regarding the sale of fake Indian tribal bonds. 7 people were charged with this fraud. Among them was a former campaign adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry and a second man once dubbed by the media “porn’s new king” along with five others. Devon Archer, an advisor to Mr. Kerry’s presidential campaign in 2004 and Jason Galanis a former investor in the adult entertainment business allegedly duped clients into investing more than $43 million in sham bonds in 2014 and 2015.

Now Devon Archer and Hunter Biden were best of buddies. In 2014, there was a lot of money flowing into a Morgan Stanley account under the name of Rosemont Seneca Bohai, LLC c/o Devon Archer.

Nadler Hearing was a Dress Rehearsal for Impeachment

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Let us begin with the resistance lawyers Chairman Nadler had as witnesses. A short summary of all the witnesses is here.

One particular witness, Pamela Karlan is especially combative and you can see why in the video below.

This is a presentation she made in 2006.

She gave away a big clue in her response to a question stating that she spent her Thanksgiving holiday reviewing documents and testimonies. That translates to collaboration between either the Intelligence Committee or the Judiciary Committee prior to the hearing. The minority on both committees did not receive that same benefit.

Now as part of this continued resistance coup against the President there is also another scandal getting very little to no attention and that is Chairman Schiff essentially spying on other members of Congress.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff spied on the top Republican on his panel by obtaining his phone records and publishing them in an impeachment report, Minority Whip Steve Scalise said Wednesday.

“It raises a lot of serious questions,” the Louisiana Republican said.

“I want to know all the people Adam Schiff is spying on,” Scalise told the Washington Examiner. “Are there other members of Congress that he is spying on, and what justification does he have? He needs to be held accountable and explain what he’s doing, going after journalists, going after members of Congress, instead of doing his job.”

Schiff released a 300-page report Tuesday on the Democrats’ impeachment investigation that included call records obtained from AT&T.

Schiff also did the same to investigative journalist John Solomon in obtaining his call records. Neither Nunes or Solomon received a subpoena.

Adam Schiff has 2 aides who worked with whistleblower at ...

But how about more nastiness including having a planted mole in the Trump White House? One name is Sean Misko and there could be yet another, Abigail Grace.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff hired a former National Security Council aide who worked with alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella at the NSC during the Obama and Trump administrations the day after the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

It was previously reported by the Washington Examiner that public records indicated Sean Misko, 37, started work on Schiff’s committee in August as a professional staff member. A specific start date was not available until this week when the latest congressional quarterly disbursements were released.

The new records show that Misko’s official hire date was July 26.

Misko was the director for the Gulf States at the NSC between 2015 until the first half of 2018. The Washington Examiner has established that the whistleblower is a CIA officer who was on the NSC during the Obama administration and worked on Ukrainian issues with Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic candidate, when he was vice president.

Ciaramella, 33, is a career CIA analyst and was the Ukraine director on the NSC from 2016 until the summer of 2017. In October 2016, he was Biden’s guest at a State Department banquet.

Before joining the NSC, Misko worked in the Obama administration at the State Department for deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, who went on to become Hillary Clinton’s senior foreign policy adviser during her 2016 presidential campaign.

Both Ciaramella and Misko started their tenures during the Obama administration and left during the first year of the Trump administration. The Washington Examiner was told by a former senior White House official that both had a close, “bro-like” relationship while working at the NSC together.

A career CIA analyst with Ukraine expertise, the alleged whistleblower filed an Aug. 12 complaint with the Intelligence Community inspector general about the July 25 phone conversation between Trump and Zelensky.

The suspected whistleblower did this after meeting with a House Intelligence Committee aide on Schiff’s staff about the call, which is now the focus of impeachment proceedings. Before going to the Schiff aide, the whistleblower informed the CIA legal counsel’s office.

Schiff initially denied he knew about the complaint before it was filed in mid-August.

“We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to,” Schiff said on Sept. 17. However, the statement was false, and an aide from his staff had spoken to the whistleblower before the whistleblower complaint was submitted.

The identity of the Schiff aide who spoke to the whistleblower has not been made public, and it has not been confirmed until now that Misko was on Schiff’s staff at the time.

By Oct. 5, it was reported the whistleblower had never indicated to the inspector general he contacted Schiff’s office before filing the complaint against the president. Three days later, the whistleblower met with the inspector general to clarify why he did not mention his meeting with Schiff’s staff, saying he did not think that anything of “substance” was discussed. Details here.

Both Adam Schiff and Gerry Nadler do not make a move without the knowledge and approval of Pelosi, so she has a hand in this. Taking a wide view for the last 3+ years, the orchestration against President Trump and those in his administration has been well choreographed and when added up the sum is terrifying. Just imagine what we don’t know.

Conservative Media Killing Operation Mockingbird

By: Lloyd Marcus

While I was visiting a relative, CBS evening news was on TV in the background. It felt like water torture hearing arrogant reporters authoritatively lie about president Trump and every political issue. Their deceptive message was: Republicans are mean and Democrats are good. Incredibly, 95% of the broadcast was fake news.

Could I escape being bombarded with fake news in my car? No. Every news break on the radio was crafted to imply that Trump is guilty of everything and Republicans are mean.

Clearly, there is a coordinated fake news media campaign to instill hatred for Trump, America, Christians, Conservatives, Republicans, Trump supporters, and straight white men. It is as if a daily memo is sent to Democrat media operatives. “Okay everyone, the phrase of the day is “Trump is an existential threat.” Every news broadcast finds a way to fit it in.

“Here’s Amy with the weather report.” “Thanks, Jim. It will be stormy today. And speaking of stormy, Trump is an existential threat.” No one knows what “existential threat” means. But it sounds smart and is intended to sell the lie that Trump is extremely dangerous.

Democrats are currently blitzing the media with their lie, “Trump is a cult leader.” What they are really promoting is Trump supporters are a small minority of mind-controlled hateful crazies.

I remember seeing The FBI Story, a 1959 movie starring Jimmy Stewart. As a child, I thought FBI agents were awesome men. We’ve learned that there are bad actors in the FBI and CIA. Allegedly, Operation Mockingbird is a program launched by the CIA in the 1950s to manipulate media to spread propaganda. Writer Deborah Davis reports that Operation Mockingbird recruited prominent American journalists and oversaw front groups.

Evidence suggests Operation Mockingbird is alive and well today. Shockingly, we have learned that the FBI and CIA played major roles in spreading the lie that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election from Hillary.

Hillary paid for a lie-filled dossier written about Trump. Hillary’s gross dossier even claimed that Trump paid prostitutes to urinate on a bed slept in by Obama. Her operatives in the FBI used the gross dossier to illegally acquire warrants to investigate whether or not Trump stole the election. The absurd investigation lasted three years, costing taxpayers $32 million.

CNN and MSNBC victimized their tiny leftist audiences 24/7 for the three-year bogus investigation. They promised Trump’s guilt would be confirmed and he would be humiliatingly booted out of office. The Trump resistance movement was devastated when the investigation concluded that Trump won the election fair and square.

Moving on to their next treasonous scheme to remove Trump, Democrats launched a news narrative claiming Trump committed impeachable crimes during a phone call with the president of Ukraine. Democrat Adam Schiff read Trump’s extreme bullying outrageous demands on national TV. I watched it on TV in the doctor’s office waiting room. I thought, “Oh my gosh. Trump said that?” Schiff assumed he could get away with lying about the content of the phone call because presidents do not release the content of conversations with foreign leaders. Trump blew Schiff’s scheme by releasing the transcript of the phone call. But here is where it gets really crazy and unbelievably arrogant.

Democrats and fake news media simply ignored the transcript. Based on Schiff’s lying version of the phone call, Schiff held impeachment hearings on national TV for two weeks. In essence, Schiff and fake news media told the American people, you are too stupid and unsophisticated to detect Trump’s obvious crimes during the phone call.

After each day of Schiff’s hearings, fake news media excitedly reported that “bombshell” testimony confirmed Trump’s guilt. In truth, none of Schiff’s witnesses could name a crime committed by Trump.

Displaying their off-the-chain arrogance, everything fake news media reported about the impeachment hearings were lies.

If we did not have conservative media countering fake news media lies, millions would be clamoring for Trump to be marched to the impeachment guillotine. Remarkably, Trump’s approval rating rose after the impeachment hearings.

I recently tweeted, “I wish to express my utmost respect and thanks to conservative media and congressional Republicans for daily fighting and explaining Democrats’ and fake news media’s coup to remove our president via Schiff’s kangaroo court impeachment hearings.”

Thank God for Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, conservative talk radio, Fox News and the internet.

Fake news media is not all-powerful. Despite a fake news media blackout, 1.7 million of us showed up in 2010 for a Washington D.C. Tea Party rally to protest ObamaCare.

In 2016, fake news media gifted Hillary’s presidential campaign with a billion dollars worth of lie-filled news stories designed to destroy candidate Trump and Trump the man. They failed. Hillary and her minions were devastated when Trump defeated her in an electoral landslide. We are well on our way to killing Operation Mockingbird.

We remember where we were during important events. It was 1988. During my lunch break, I returned a VHS movie to the video store — got back into my car and turned on the radio to listen to conservative talk show host Tom Marr on WCBM, 680AM in Baltimore. To my shock and disappointment, Tom’s show was replaced with some new guy, Rush Limbaugh.

This song cracks me up. I love it. The Rush Hawkins Singers’, “Thank the Lord Rush Limbaugh’s On.”

Our world is a work in progress

By: Tabitha Korol

It was by sheer chance that I came across a letter written by a self-described unqualified person who nevertheless had the temerity to comment at length where s/he had little expertise.  The venue was classes held for and taught by retirees, usually professionals in their field.   This course concerned the history of America, our progress over the past 100 years, and the changes to our culture.  The presenter was Captain F of the United States Navy, who has Masters’ degrees in Engineering, Naval War College (Home of Thought for the USN), and International Affairs; and the complainant was someone who, despite the years, seems to have joined the mindset of those high school and college students who fulminate emotionally against concepts that differ from their own, excusing themselves from the need to offer substantive facts.

M. Sands” is a fitting appellation as sand is a fine mass that is quite unusable for any kind of construction – in this instance, the building of ideas.  It was clear from his/her letter that here was just another person who had uncritically accepted the language of the left regarding climate change and  sustainability, yet felt qualified to dismiss these seminars as “unproductive.”

Rather than intelligently ponder the information offered over the six-week-course period by a man who had achieved the distinguished position and rank of captain in the United States Navy, the complainant chose to cower behind a full set of conditioned prejudices.  S/he expected the instructor to provide a summation on what we must do now to achieve world peace when the world doesn’t even share the same definition of “peace.”  For us, it is security, respect, harmony, mutual understanding and an end to hostilities.  For Islam and socialism, it is living in complete subservience under either of those totalitarian ideologies.

In the written grievance, Sands asked how America should go forward into the “new world,” meaning that s/he had already defined the world with the terminology of the left – the catastrophists who have alienated and polarized so many people with their frenetic campaign to reduce the standard of living for most of Earth’s population.  Despite Sands’s rigid beliefs, no credible scientific body has ever said that climate change threatens the collapse of civilization, much less predict the extinction of the human species.  There is no scientific basis for the doomsayers – not that humans will die or even how they would die.  The world is a work in progress.

What is true is that we are being subjected to a barrage of lies and pseudo-science by the so-called elite, with the purpose of frightening the masses (particularly the children, the next generation) into surrendering every aspect of daily life to their control – from the food we eat to the clothes we wear, to lessened healthcare, diminished transportation, and to the impoverished life that existed before the Industrial Revolution.  They do not reveal that today’s humans produce enough food for 10 billion people, 25% more than needed, and wheat yield relies more on tractors, irrigation and fertilizer, and fossil fuels for shipments than on climate changes.  The denial of our freedom of choice is the Golden Fleece coveted by the lef, who exalt themselves as the only ones with the percipient intelligence to be trusted.

Captain F spelled out what we should know, and he rightly did not presume to provide a definitive recipe for the future. This would have been presumptuous, considering that the vagaries of the future, our choices for good or ill, remain in flux.

We know that natural disasters have occurred throughout history, but the displacement of people is more often due to armed conflict, especially in Islamic regions.  However, economic development makes us less vulnerable to most of the threats.  With the increase in our expertise in transportation and aid (such as first responders to areas of natural disasters), there has been a 99.7% decline in the death toll from those natural disasters.  Therefore, advancement and improvement under the auspices of our current administration should continue unimpeded.

Instead of promoting safety, comfort and an improvement in the economies that allow people to stay in their home countries, the Globalist-leftists are using these now-restive populations to destabilize western societies.  Migrants from Central and South American countries have the hope of living better, some expecting handouts, but it is known that the encouragement and financing are made by the left for a globalist agenda, and they include George Soros, transnational organizations, corporations, churches, celebrities, and more.  Migration from Arabic countries is due primarily to the harsh life dictated by Islamic law and by the Koranic command to spread Islam worldwide, whether by an overwhelming population or by the sword.  The subsequent increased crime rate throughout Europe is destabilizing the entire continent, causing the indigenous population to leave.  Many have concluded that this disruption is by design.

The UN guidelines about CO2 that call for the masses to eat, dress and live as in an earlier era do not apply to the elite.  We will stop driving our cars, but they will continue their transnational flights.  The future that should concern us is one that is dominated by an overarching Big Government, the United Nations, that assumes it knows best and therefore has the right to manage the lives of the ignorant masses.  Their influence extends deeply into academia, as children are always the first line of attack.  Schools are robbing the students of an education that teaches critical thinking, the power to reason, the essential ability to make decisions based on facts rather than feelings.  The ability to think for oneself is lethal to the Globalist-leftist agenda.

The educational textbooks, rife with Islamic and Marxist propaganda, must be replaced with the moral law of our Judeo-Christian heritage.  The left is planning to return our world to the era prior to the Industrial Revolution, with the populace unable to create or grasp how to improve their lot.  This is why we must not cede our rights to government-controlled healthcare, gun control, indistinct borders and the loss of our sovereignty.

Sands demands a complete itinerary of our future direction.  We have no strategy other than staying the course set for us by our Founding Fathers and not being overcome by those who want to destroy our progress.  Sands called us arrogant, but it is not arrogance to say that we have created the best nation on the planet with the best laws by which to live and thrive, and ours is the ultimate destination of migrants.

When Mrs. Powell of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” he unhesitatingly replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”  The best way to ensure that Islam, socialism, Marxism, etc., do not get to overtake us, is to continue to work for the American ideals of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, by maintaining the strongest defense for times of war while still living in peace; encourage research and production, and be an inspiration to people in other nations.   We must never accept the ideologies that lead to the restriction of liberty, the forfeiture of happiness and even the loss of life.

I believe that we are back on course despite an eight-year setback and if our current administration is permitted to continue with reducing taxes, balancing trade with other countries, improving our military (Teddy Roosevelt’s “Walk softly and carry a big stick”), and disallowing the Marxist faction of our government to take hold, we will be able to look forward to a good future for generations to come.  And those like M. Sands who are self-censoring will hopefully continue to benefit from a social order with which s/he is allowed to disagree because the one s/he espouses would not tolerate such dissent.

The actual names have been removed to protect their privacy.

Mayor Pete and Jeffrey Epstein: Spawn of the Sexual Revolution

By: Cliff Kincaid

The Culture Wars are mostly over, and the sexual revolutionaries have won. But they are not proclaiming total victory. They want a gay president in the White House, in order to complete Barack Hussein Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America. With their eyes on the prize, they want to mandate through executive order a risky HIV/AIDS vaccine.  But such a vaccine could backfire and spread the disease to more people.

One of the political winners in the cultural revolution is Democratic Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, the South Bend, Indiana, Mayor who “married” another man and is leading the polls in Iowa, which holds its first-in-the-nation caucus February 3, 2020. He is one of the top fundraisers among Democratic candidates, assembling what the New York Times calls “a nationwide network of donors that is anchored by many wealthy and well-connected figures in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender political circles.” These are many of the same people who propelled Barack Hussein Obama into the White House in 2008.

On the cutting edge of a Marxist cultural revolution, Buttigieg promises to fund a cure for HIV/AIDS and update the U.S. passport program to include a third, non-binary gender option, “X”. His 18-page gay rights campaign document cites the United Nations as a possible legal basis for intervening in family life and protecting “intersex infants and children” from those who believe in traditional genders.

His late father Joseph Buttigieg was a Notre Dame professor and expert on the ideology of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian communist dedicated to overthrowing Western civilization and Biblical values. Like father, like son.

Mayor Pete’s disadvantage is that many black voters active in the Democratic Party are resisting his candidacy, in part over the gay issue.

Another Sexual Pioneer

Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire pedophile with high-level contacts in politics and the media, was also interested in children as sexual objects and devoted much of his work to fighting AIDS. He told one of his alleged victims, 15-year-old Jennifer Araoz, that he was “a big AIDS activist.” Whether Epstein was HIV positive or not has not been answered.

We do know that he was a “transhumanist” who wanted to live forever and saw AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases as obstacles in his way. He supported the Elton John AIDS Foundation for the purpose of combatting HIV resistance to drugs,  a follow-up to the Epstein-funded Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University which helped John Hopkins University “develop a database to predict the effect of drugs on the HIV virus and notably HIV resistance.” The purpose is to develop potential HIV treatments and cures.

It’s clear this was a subject he had a personal interest in.

Since the discovery of HIV, an estimated 36 million people worldwide have died of AIDS-related illnesses. An estimated 700,000 Americans have lost their lives to HIV since 1981.

Epstein and Clinton

The obvious answer to AIDS, both here and abroad, is sexual abstinence outside of traditional marriage. But that wasn’t a viable option for womanizer Bill Clinton, who, as president, launched an emergency program to create an AIDS vaccine, calling it “a national mission.”   As a result, HIV/AIDS vaccines have been in human trials in the U.S., some of them funded by the U.S. Government, and other areas of the world. Since HIV/AIDS was first recognized in the United States in 1981, the U.S. Government has spent hundreds of billions of dollars on HIV/AIDS and an AIDS vaccine without a cure being found.

Today, three experimental vaccines are said to be entering the last stages of testing and the “experts” say an HIV vaccine could be ready for widespread use in 2021.

Interestingly, it is reported that Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane took Clinton to tour AIDS “prevention and treatment” project sites in Africa in 2002. Epstein was described by  Clinton in a statement as someone with “an in-depth knowledge of 21st-century science” and committed to “citizen service and combating HIV/AIDS.”

It is significant that billionaire Bill Gates, who met several times with Epstein, is funding and promoting an HIV/AIDS vaccine and was photographed at a so-called “Billionaire’s Dinner” sponsored by the Edge, a group that included Epstein as a member.

Dazed and Confused

Buttigieg’s path to becoming a sexual revolutionary was different than Epstein’s. It is not clear why Buttigieg left the Catholic Church, where a gay Mafia targeted young boys for sexual abuse. But we do know that he went to Harvard, smoked dope, and eventually joined an Episcopal church, where he married another man. He says God created him as a practicing and proud homosexual.

The HIV/AIDS epidemic “disproportionately” affects gay men, he says, ignoring the scientific evidence that dangerous sexual practices, such as those outlined in the book, The Health Hazards of Homosexuality, dramatically increase the odds of getting sick and dying from AIDS and other diseases.

But with the support of the Association of LGBTQ Journalists, a group funded by most major media organizations, he seems to be counting on the “fake news media” to carry him to victory. Hard questions about Mayor Pete’s personal lifestyle — and demands for the release of his medical records — are considered totally out of bounds.

For example, the article by Don Boys, “Pete, Since You Brought it Up, How ‘Gay’ Are You?” was widely denounced for examining the homosexual lifestyle in graphic terms.

For his part, Buttigieg has been silent about the homosexual lifestyle he champions that is responsible for most of the HIV cases in the U.S. Of the 38,739 new HIV diagnoses in the U.S. in 2017, 70 percent were gay and bisexual men.

Medical Freedom

Rather than change their behavior, the homosexuals want a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine to enable them to continue to engage in dangerous and promiscuous sexual activity. Buttigieg’s campaign document declares that “we must continue searching for a cure and a preventive vaccine” for HIV/AIDS but is silent about making the AIDS shot mandatory. Clearly, he doesn’t want to scare people. However, government experts speak in the medical and scientific journals about the need for such a vaccine to be compulsory in order to be effective. Another brutally honest paper, “Anticipating HIV Vaccines: Sketching an Agenda for Public Health Ethics and Policy in the United States,” notes, “If individuals perceive a significant protective effect of an HIV vaccine, they may be more willing to engage in risky behaviors.” That’s precisely why the gay lobby wants the vaccine. Such a vaccine gives a green light to the sexual practices which gave us the AIDS epidemic in the first place.

You don’t have to be an “anti-vaxxer” to recognize the dangers. Millions could be infected before they realize the government and Big Pharma have made a deadly mistake. An AIDS vaccine will have a form of AIDS or HIV in it, and the government will not be able to guarantee in advance that it is safe or effective. That’s why a federal program exists to compensate victims of vaccines.

The Swine Flu vaccine scandal of the 1970s is an example of what can happen. Hundreds of people came down with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological disorder, after getting the flu shot. A rotavirus vaccine for children was withdrawn from the U.S. market in 1999 for safety reasons. Research conducted by attorney Walter Kyle indicates that contaminated polio vaccines may have led to cancers and some cases of AIDS in humans.

Blackmail Material

Whatever the origin of AIDS, the sexual revolution has been facilitated by sexual practices being spread by the use of mobile dating apps. Buttigieg says he met his husband on a dating app, a revelation that sounds innocent enough until you discover that another popular app, Grindr, which also appeals to gays, was owned by a Chinese company. In this case, the scandal, which involves potential blackmail, has gotten some media attention.

It apparently dawned on some U.S. “intelligence” officials that the Chinese Communist Party could obtain “compromising photos and messages from some of America’s most powerful men — some openly gay, and some closeted,” as columnist  Isaac Stone Fish put it. His column, which appeared in the Washington Post, even suggested that Chinese communist security forces “could leak compromising photos of gay American generals” and “send male honeypots to targets in the American national security apparatus.”

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) ordered the sale of Grindr on national security grounds but the transaction doesn’t have to be consummated until June 2020. Two Senate Democrats got involved on behalf of the LGBTQ movement, saying 3.6 million people were using Grindr and that their personal information, including HIV status and last HIV testing date, could be compromised.

Of course, forcing the Chinese to sell their stake in the company does not eliminate the problem. They can still hack into Grindr and other apps for blackmail material, and probably already have done so.

Buttigieg, a military veteran, should be concerned about all of this. Yet, he seems more concerned about homosexuals being able to conceal their HIV status when they have sex with other gays. He was on a CNN LGBT Town Hall program saying he wants to do away with laws throughout the country which makes it illegal to knowingly give someone HIV. The argument is that such laws stigmatize HIV/AIDS carriers and that the disease isn’t an automatic death sentence anymore because of AIDS drugs.

Criminalizing Christianity

Faced with a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine for their children, parents with common sense will figure out that their children can easily avoid the disease they are supposedly being “protected” against through changes in behavior and lifestyle. That is a much safer option than having a dangerous and potentially lethal foreign substance injected into their bloodstream.

But that means teaching kids about traditional morality and avoiding the homosexual lifestyle, and that’s something that the homosexual cabal behind Buttigieg will not tolerate. And since Buttigieg says that he opposes religious and personal exemptions to vaccines, that means parents will go to jail for refusing to have their children injected with an HIV/AIDS vaccine.

Jeffrey Epstein and Pete Buttigieg are very different people. But the AIDS epidemic which has left so many dead and dying can be traced back to the sexual revolution that sparked their political interests and careers. Epstein, a member of exclusive organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations, died under mysterious circumstances, while Buttigieg seems to have the inside track among the rich and powerful to be president.

Did Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler Read Federalist No. 65?

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

While Nancy Pelosi has been ‘prayerful’ during this impeachment inquiry process, Congressman Adam Schiff, HPSCI Chairman has been touting the Constitution and poor old Congressman Jerry Nadler, Chairman of the House Judiciary remains lost as he was forced to give up control of the impeachment process after the stupid hearing with Corey Lewandowski. Meanwhile…

Whitaker will testify before House panel after tense back ...

Nadler, a lawyer himself, has previously railed against impeachment during the Clinton scandal, has invited 3 Constitutional lawyers as witnesses for his first impeachment hearing and the Republicans were only granted 1 witness. Seems Nadler needs several law classes and he and the others meaning Pelosi and Schiff should actually read Federalist No. 66. More on that later.

Nadler has called: Noah Feldman, a Harvard Law professor. His position on impeachment and argument is that President Trump can be impeached even without evidence of a crime. He published an article in The New Yorker in May of 2017 stating his argument which is all the actions of the president are a pattern and can be collectively used in sum as impeachable. Feldman has also called for a Special Counsel to be assigned to investigate Rudy Giuliani and AG William Barr.

Another Nadler witness is Pamela Karlan, a law professor at Stanford. Her concentration including being on the faculty at Stanford is voting rights and political processes. Karlan was on the Obama shortlist to be a Supreme Court Justice while her resume includes being an attorney for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and was a commissioner on the California Fair Political Practices Commission. Outside of being known as snarky, she often quotes poetry in her classes. Karlan was one of the 42 legal scholars that signed a letter before Trump took office urging him to change his views on several issues and was very critical of his rhetoric.

The last Nadler witness is Michael Gerhardt, a law professor at the University of North Carolina. Gerhardt penned an article in the Atlantic stating that impeachment proceedings are fully legitimate. Gerhardt is also a CNN legal analyst and was once the deputy media director for Al Gore’s senate campaign. Further, Gerhardt counseled Clinton on judicial selections and was Special Counsel to Senator Patrick Leahy on the nominations to the Supreme Court of Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

The only witness the Republicans were allowed to invite was Democrat and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. Turley appears to be an okay feller when it comes to Constitutional law. He has provided testimony often on The Hill. He is often the ‘go-to’ person for being a Constitutional originalist and protector of separation of powers within government. Turley has called out the Democrats several times including over the Russia investigation. In a recent interview, Turley had this summary on the impeachment:

The fact is I think that this is the – well certainly the shortest investigation, it’s certainly the thinnest evidentiary record, and it’s the narrowest impeachment ever to go to the Senate, if they were to go on this record….did they prove something was contemptible or impeachable? Contemptible is not synonymous with impeachable. The President does set policy. They have three conversations, two of them directly, one with Senator Johnson, one with Ambassador Sondland, where Trump denies a quid pro quo….so you have a conflicted record. And the question is what do you need to remove a sitting president?…

Whether this is intentional or not, it seems designed to fail in the Senate.

Meanwhile back to Federalist No. 65:

Hamilton argued that the Senate was the body to hold the impeachment trial and not the Supreme Court where evidence of misconduct of public men was a violation of public trust, meaning that society is a victim of that violation. That misconduct would contain injuries to society itself. In Federalist No. 66, Hamilton went on to further argue that the impeachment proceedings would seldom fail to agitate the passion of the whole community and divide parties into less friendly factions stating it would become a condition and test of political strengths between warring political tribes.

It is no wonder that President Trump reminds the nation often of his accomplishments as they are hardly injurious to society, in fact just the opposite.

Georgia on My Mind

By: Linda Goudsmit | Pundicity

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp is poised to select Kelly Loeffler to replace Georgia’s retiring Republican Senator Johnny Isakson. Kemp’s choice has provoked vehement opposition from conservative Georgians and the White House. Why is Kemp’s choice so controversial?

For starters, President Trump helped Kemp get elected, and POTUS has made it widely known his preference to fill the senate vacancy is conservative Rep. Doug Collins.

So, who is Kelly Loeffler and why is she controversial?

Businesswoman Kelly Loeffler is the chief executive of Bakkt, a subsidiary of Atlanta-based Intercontinental Exchange Inc (ICE) and co-owner of Georgia’s Women’s National Basketball Association team the Atlanta Dream. Atlanta News Now reports that Loeffler’s application to Governor Kemp states:

“From working on the family farm to creating jobs and opportunity in the business world, I have been blessed to live the American Dream. I am offering myself to serve hardworking Georgians as a political outsider in the United States Senate to protect that dream for everyone.”

But that’s not all!

Kelly Loeffler is married to Jeffrey Sprecher the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE) and Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange. Jeffrey Sprecher owns the NYSE? Yep!

A December 12, 2013 Reuters article, ICE completes takeover of NYSE, describes the transaction, “The deal, which was worth $10.9 billion as of November 1, gives ICE control of Liffe, Europe’s No. 2 derivatives market, as well as the New York Stock Exchange, which has been at the center of American capitalism since it was started in 1792.”

According to Wikipedia, “Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) is an American company that owns exchanges for financial and commodity markets, and operates 12 regulated exchanges and marketplaces. This includes ICE futures exchanges in the United States, Canada, and Europe, the Liffe futures exchanges in Europe, the New York Stock Exchange, equity options exchanges and OTC energy, credit, and equity markets. ICE also owns and operates 6 central clearing houses: ICE Clear U.S., ICE Clear Europe, ICE Clear Singapore, ICE Clear Credit, ICE Clear Netherlands, and ICE NGX.”

According to Fortune Magazine, “In August 2018 Intercontinental Exchange announced it was forming the new company Bakkt, which is intended to leverage Microsoft online servers to manage digital assets. Bakkt was said to be working with Boston Consulting Group (BCG), MicrosoftStarbucks, and others to create a software platform. The Bakkt ecosystem is expected to include federally regulated markets and warehousing along with merchant and consumer applications. Its first use cases will be for trading and conversion of Bitcoin (BTC) versus fiat currenciesKelly Loeffler is Bakkt’s CEO.”

Bakkt, a subsidiary of Sprecher’s Intercontinental Exchange, was valued at $740 million after series A funding round March 2019. So what is the problem and why does it matter that Loeffler is Bakkt’s CEO?

Kelly Loeffler and Jeffrey Sprecher’s personal wealth is not the problem, their philosophical aspirations regarding globalized trading with a global cryptocurrency like Bitcoin through Bakkt is the problem.

Today’s worldwide clash between globalism and national sovereignty is reflected in American politics. The Leftist/Globalist axis has attacked the America-first agenda of President Donald Trump and repeatedly attempted to unseat him through impeachment or defeat him in the 2020 presidential election.

The unsuccessful coup attempts against President Donald Trump have been coordinated by the deep state through the intelligence community to destabilize and overthrow the president because of his America-first policies. President Donald J. Trump is the existential enemy of globalism and is unapologetically committed to American freedom and American sovereignty. His presidency is challenged by the Democrat party support for open borders and uncontrolled immigration that facilitates the one-world government envisioned by the globalist political elite.

The difference between global trade and globalism is being intentionally blurred to disguise globalism’s sinister objective of a New World Order of internationalized one-world government. One of the essential requirements for national sovereignty is a national currency. The United States dollar is our country’s national currency. Globalists Kelly Loeffler and her husband Jeffrey Sprecher support the internationalized cryptocurrency they are promoting with Bakkt where trades will be conducted with Bitcoin instead of fiat currency like the U.S. dollar.

Bitcoin is the world’s first global, digital currency. Its use eliminates the need for central banks or even the nation-state’s government that regulates banks. Bitcoin is the global currency of an internationalized planet. It is the currency of globalism’s New World Order and one-world government.

The fact that Kelly Loeffler is a woman, a business leader, and a registered Republican cannot erase her $750,000 support for globalist RINO Romney in 2012, or the globalist ambitions of the Bitcoin exchange she leads. Kelly Loeffler is a globalist and a dangerous choice for American sovereignty because her Senate vote could theoretically tip the scale against President Trump’s America-first agenda.

Globalists are determined to stack the political deck with senate seats of Romney supporters like Loeffler rather than republicans who support President Trump’s America-first agenda like Georgia Rep. Doug Collins.

So, who is Governor Brian Kemp and why would he choose a globalist like Kelly Loeffler? Georgians want to know – and so do I.

Gov. Newsom Takes Control of California Pension Fund

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

$700 billion… the California governor wants full control of that for climate change programs, for road/transportation programs and to reduce vehicle miles traveled. Remember, the largest California boondoggle is the high-speed rail system that is likely the worst and most corrupt program across America.

Earlier this year, President Trump pulled nearly $1 billion of federal money for the high-speed rail project in California that was to connect Los Angeles to San Francisco and be completed by 2033. This rail system was to only cost $77 billion and now the project construction has been reduced substantially in size where the estimated costs are in the $20 billion range. The estimated costs have jumped from $77 billion to as much as $98.1 billion.

High-speed rail taking shape even as opponents seek to ...

The California Governor is still on the hook and he wants to have financial management over the state’s pension fund.

California Pension Fund Urged to Divest from Gun Sellers ...

In part: Newsom’s order directs the state’s Transportation Agency, pension funds and the department that manages government contracts to reconsider how they spend the public’s money with an eye toward investing in projects that could help Californians prepare for climate change.

The executive order “is the governor saying ‘I am prioritizing this in a mainstream way across the government. The state as a major investor and asset owner needs to take climate change really seriously,’” said Kate Gordon, director of the governor’s Office of Planning and Research.

The order references funds that taxpayers typically think of as restricted, such as money earmarked for road improvements and for pension systems that have a financial obligation to earn as much cash as possible to provide retirement security for millions of government employees.

Newsom’s order happened to follow Caltrans’ release of a report describing decisions to adjust funding for highway projects that had been pledged to the Central Valley. The timing created an impression that the Newsom administration was tinkering with taxpayer-approved transportation plans.

Newsom’s executive order won’t change the restrictions lawmakers placed in the 2017 law that levied new taxes and fees on fuel and vehicle registrations to pay for road repairs, according to the state transportation agency. That law is projected to raise about $5 billion a year for roadwork.

But, the executive order could lead the California agency to adjust its plans for other funds, steering money to public transportation and other projects in dense communities near jobs to “reduce vehicle miles traveled.”

Newsom’s administration estimates the state has about $5 billion a year in transportation funds that could be redirected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. More details here.

Meanwhile, The Institute for Energy Research this past August took a hard look at the Green New Deal. After a careful study of the GND, there would be a required $10 tax increase on a single gallon of gas. Additionally, in order to eliminate gas-powered vehicles in favor of electric vehicles, gasoline prices would have to increase to $13 per gallon.

Consider the financial consequences to the nation’s economy and the cost of moving goods in the transportation sector…

The Green New Deal would cripple the U.S. economy by requiring carbon taxes ranging from $200 to $1000 per metric ton to spur replacement of current technologies in the transportation and electric generating sectors. If the United States were to implement carbon taxes of this nature, Americans would be devastated financially. And, given that the United States emits about 15 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions compared to China which emits 28 percent of the world total, U.S. reductions would have little impact on global atmospheric concentrations. According to China’s commitment to the Paris Climate agreement, the country will not begin to reduce carbon dioxide emissions until after the year 2030.

Most Americans would find $13 per gallon gasoline unacceptable. The impacts on households and businesses of all kinds would be enormous. A quadrupling of gasoline prices would plunge the U.S. economy into a deep recession. Policymakers should understand the consequences of their proposals.

While the impeachment process is going on in the House of Representatives, Speaker Pelosi was attending a UN climate change summit in Madrid. While there she declared that the United States was still in the Paris Agreement, in spite of President Trump exiting the United States from the non-binding agreement.

Gotta wonder where this is all going and where the collaboration is in the Pelosi orbit or that of Governor Newsom. Better ask some harder questions of those Democrat presidential candidates in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and beyond.

HPSCI Minority Report, No Evidence of Impeachment Grounds

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

In part:

House Republicans delivered a point-by-point rebuttal Monday to Democrats’ impeachment efforts, claiming in their own report that the evidence collected in the inquiry to date does not support the accusations leveled against President Trump — or rise to the level of removal from office.

“The evidence presented does not prove any of these Democrat allegations, and none of the Democrats’ witnesses testified to having evidence of bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor,” Republicans said in a 123-page report, timed to be made public ahead of the majority Democrats’ impeachment report.

The dueling narratives are emerging following two weeks of House Intelligence Committee hearings, where witnesses detailed their own knowledge of efforts to pressure Ukraine to launch political probes as U.S. aid was withheld over the summer. The committee is set to vote on Democrats’ final report Tuesday – likely to be another party-line moment – before transmitting that document to the Judiciary Committee, which holds its first public hearing Wednesday.

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif.; Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; and Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Michael McCaul, R-Texas, penned the minority report, which has been reviewed by Fox News. In it, they broadly defend the president’s actions in the face of accusations he withheld military aid and a White House meeting as leverage to pressure Ukraine to launch a probe involving the Bidens. More here.

***

Each year, the National Defense Authorization Act must pass both Houses of Congress and then have the president’s signature. For the last few years, military aid for Ukraine has been included as Ukraine has been fighting a hot war with Russia. Most recently, President Obama did fulfill the aid to Ukraine but it was all non-lethal aid as his reasons were to not further inflame tensions between the United States and Russia. The 2018 NDAA for Ukraine amounted to $350 million of lethal and non-lethal aid including training, technical assistance among other requests.

It should be noted that Ukraine maintains a military attache at the Pentagon that coordinates planning, war-gaming, training, aid and cyber warfare with our own military experts assigned to Ukraine.

EXPLAINED: How Ukraine Uses U.S. Military Aid (Think ...

The 2019 NDAA has $250 million for Ukraine under what is titled the USAI ( Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative). Two other key details of this aid include the assignment of an executive agent responsible for overseeing the aid process. Additionally, the Department of Defense must sign off on the fact that a small segment of corruption passes a standard test by the United States and those details are made clear before aid can be released. The DoD and the State Department certified twice that Ukraine had made sufficient reforms to decrease corruption and increase accountability.

Sufficient reforms?

By the way, the 2020 NDAA has $300 million in security assistance for Ukraine.

Yet… that does not settle any other parts of corruption in Ukraine. This is where the major disputes come from between the Democrats and Republicans. Corruption includes sham elections, money-laundering, banking financial fraud and theft and most recently the concerns of Ukraine naval ships seized by Russia in the Kerch Strait. (Sidebar: Russia did return those 3 naval ships after almost a year and they were stripped of all weapons, equipment, and even toilets. They were in such bad shape they had to be towed.)

President Trump has long been demanding other nations step up to fulfill their NATO obligations and further he has had major concerns that other countries are not making any substantial contributions to Ukraine. This was the reason for the Office of Management and Budget to hold for a few weeks the full release of military aid to Ukraine as told in testimony by Mark Sandy who is the national security associate deputy at the OMB. Sandy included in the closed-door testimony that there were several requests for additional information on what other countries were contributing to Ukraine and that information was provided to the Trump White House in early September. Trump officially released the aid on September 11. Aid had to be fully released by September 30 according to the law.

With a new president taking office in Ukraine it does stand to reason that the United States take a second look at conditions and the relationship between the United States and Ukraine given that the new president Zelensky was elected on combating corruption in Ukraine.

With all the new conditions and the slow-moving parts of our own government, the Minority report of the HPSCI on the impeachment inquiries having no basis does have legitimate points.
