Stormy Daniels, Who Never Kept Promise To "Meet Immigrant Children", Arrested After Fondling Undercover Cops At Strip Club Reader 07/12/2018 (Thu) 14:21:00 Id: bfce2e [Preview] No. 10931 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who has made headlines for an alleged affair with Donald Trump, was arrested while performing Wednesday night at a Columbus, Ohio, strip club after allegedly having physical contact with patrons.

Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti in a Twitter post claimed the arrest "was politically motivated, and "reeks of desperation."

Police said Daniels was busted after allegedly touching three different undercover vice police officer during her performance at the Sirens club, in violation of state law barring anyone who is not a family member from touching a dancer who is either nude or semi-nude.

Court documents reportedly claim that Daniels, during her peformance, forced faces of club customers into her breasts and used her exposed breast to smack their faces. She also allegedly fondled the breast of female customers.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was released on bail within hours of being arrested on three counts of misdemeanor sex offenses, according to an NBC affiliate. She is scheduled to appear in court Friday.

Daniels was arrested by Columbus Police and charged with three counts of "Illegally Operating Sexually Oriented Business - Employee Knowingly Touch Any Patron," according to online court records. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Franklin Municipal Court on Friday morning.

Police brought Daniels to the Jackson Pike Correctional Facility around 4:30 Thursday morning.

Back in 2007, Ohio lawmakers passed the Community Defense Act. The law restricts the hours that sexually oriented businesses can operate. It also states that a patron cannot touch a nude or semi-nude dancer in a club anywhere on the premises or in the parking lot. When asked if he knew about the law, Avenatti said, "I'm aware of the law. I think it's a ridiculous use of resources."

Beautiful.

I don't have a problem with her stripping for a living. I have even less of a problem with her maximizing the monetary value of temporary notoriety, even when done to the expense of other causes. The real fun here is to be found in a philosophical approach to life wherein laws only apply to businessmen and politicians.

I hope for her attorney's sake he insisted on an upfront pay-as-you-go schedule, and has remained attentive to his accounts receivable.

Good! Russian Military Moving Into Libya To Prevent Future Destabilization Reader 07/12/2018 (Thu) 16:35:24 Id: c4c407 [Preview] No. 10938 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
U.S. intelligence agencies are closely monitoring Russian military activities in Libya for signs that Moscow may soon build a military base in the divided North African state.

Intelligence reports indicate that Russia is planning to expand its Syrian bases at Tartus and Hemeimeem to Libya.

The possible Russian move into Libya represents the most recent failure stemming from the policies of President Obama that backed Islamist rebels who overthrew and killed Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi in 2011.

Mr. Obama has said that the failure to prepare for the aftermath of the ouster of Gadhafi was the worst mistake of his presidency. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also came under fire for failing to provide security for Americans who were attacked and killed in Benghazi after Gadhafi’s fall.

The push for a Russian military presence in Libya is being led by retired Maj. Gen. Khalifah Haftar, whose militia forces, the Libyan National Army, control eastern Libya. Russian private military forces have been operating in eastern Libya since March 2017, including the RSB Group that has deployed several dozen armed mercenaries to join forces with Haftar militias.

News reports from Libya stated recently that the RSB Group mercenaries are engaged in advance work, scouting locations for a Russian military base in Tobruk or Benghazi.

In addition to RSB, the notorious Wagner Group of Russian mercenaries also is operating in eastern Libya, reportedly to service Gen. Haftar’s Russian-supplied weaponry. Wagner mercenaries also are helping set up an intelligence network for the general’s forces.

Despite all LIES, Gadhafi was killed by the US because he was fighting against radical terrorists, desired prosperity and productive industry to better his society during his leadership. Most of all, Gadhafi did not respect the US petrodollar reserve currency status and wanted to trade outside the dollar, with nations like Russia.

Leaked: German Army Armed With Broomsticks, Can't Even Pay Their Fair Share For NATO Reader 07/12/2018 (Thu) 03:13:00 Id: c0d17a [Preview] No. 10916 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Germany's military is so underfunded its troops used BROOMSTICKS painted black as mock weapons during a Nato defence exercise.

But the highly embarrassing episode, revealed in a leaked report, is just the beginning of the country's woes as it fights to reverse chronic army shortages.

It comes as Donald Trump has vowed to make Chancellor Angela Merkel increase her defence spending to reach the minimum spending obligations all Nato members must adhere to.

General Harald Kujat, a former chief of staff of the German armed forces, later described it as a "huge embarrassment".

The unit was supposed to be ready to deploy whenever a Nato member was threatened, he warned.

He added: "If that is not the case, then both for Nato, and for the Federal Republic of Germany, this is a huge embarrassment," The Telegraph reported.

And a spokesperson for the Defence Ministry stated: "In the case of the Boxer armoured vehicle, it was being used as a mobile headquarters, and a weapon is not foreseen and not necessary for a mobile headquarters.

"It was not a fighting vehicle. So we have no explanation why the soldiers would simulate a weapon."

In 2015 it also emerged the German military was using ordinary civilian Mercedes vans as stand-ins for armoured personnel carriers.

And those weren't as much prisons as mandatory resorts. The intent, anyway. If it wasn't for Typhus spreading lice (which also affected German front lines) and Allied bombing of supplies causing starvation for both camp prisoners and soldier alike, I'd check myself into one of those camps.

Absolutely, of all things I actually heard a conservative German-American Christian talk show host talk about this in detail before, that the reality of these supposed "death camps" was actually false, they were prison labor camps and the only reason so many people died in those labor camps was because German railroads and other transportation infrastructure was being bombed. Therefore the Germans could not get the necessities they needed (food, water, proper sanitation, medicine, etc.) to the prisoners and they ended up dying in those camps.

I'm not going to argue about whether those camps were for political prisoners, perhaps they were, but the truth is no one was "gassed" or tortured in any way. All death was due to the natural consequences of war. When I heard this guy talking on the radio (he's a staunch conservative Christian) I was like "damn" they are going to throw him off the fucking airwaves. And they did.

A combination of incompetence, poor training and inaction led to the Valentine's Day massacre of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida - claim 15 current or former students in a new federal lawsuit which points the finger directly at Broward County law enforcement.

"Law enforcement choked," said Detroit civil rights attorney Solomon Radner, who filed the lawsuit, adding "Cops are heroes, and they’re supposed to be heroes."

The lawsuit was filed in federal court because it alleges constitutional rights were violated, and because Florida courts cap lawsuit awards against local governments at $300,000, reports the Palm Beach Post.

Defendants in the suit include Sheriff Scott Israel and disgraced former school resource officer Scot Peterson, who was seen on CCTV footage driving a golf cart up to the high school building during the shooting, only to hop off, unholster his gun, and run behind a concrete wall for cover.

BREAKING: Broward County Sheriff's Office releases security video showing Deputy Scot Peterson's actions (or inactions...) during the February 14 shooting. pic.twitter.com/QnILMn87Yp

— Wired Sources (@WiredSources) March 15, 2018

Peterson, 54, dubbed the "Broward coward," was blasted by Sheriff Israel a week after the shooting - who said Peterson should have "went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer," adding that the deputy's failure to act left him "devastated" and sick to his stomach.

The lawsuit claims that during “eight minutes of hell,” numerous “failures by numerous government actors, including law enforcement, strongly continued to Shooter’s ability to carry out this horrific attack without which this attack could not have happened.”

Peterson lied, told other officers not to do their jobs.

Following the shooting, Petersen issued a statement through his attorney denying any wrongdoing - and said that he thought the shots were being fired from outside the school.

The records appear to support Broward Sheriff Scott Israel’s contention that Peterson, a longtime school resource officer, should have entered Building 12 to engage Cruz and try to prevent deaths. They also appear to show that other deputies may have refrained from rushing into the school at the direction of Peterson and a Parkland captain. The response by the agency has been the subject of national scrutiny, and is currently under review by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. -Miami Herald

The lawsuit reads in part:

"Defendant SCOT PETERSON was at all pertinent times a Broward County deputy and was specifically tasked with protecting the Plaintiffs, even [if] it meant risking his own life. It was and is a heroic job and one upon which people reply in the case of a life and death emergency. He was tasked with the job to protect the children at the school with the knowledge that he was possibly the only armed person in the immediate vicinity of the school. His job duties required him to run towards danger at risk of life and limb, and not to run away from danger for the sole purpose of sole-preservation."

The suit then goes on to claim "His arbitrary and conscience-shocking actions and inactions directly and predictably caused children to die, get injured, and get traumatized."

Also named in the suit is Broward County Captain Jan Jordan for allegedly refusing to allow emergency personnel to enter the school, as well as school guard Andrew Medina for failing to stop the shooter "even though he saw Shooter walk past him and he recognized Shooter to be a known danger to the school."

Instead, the plaintiffs claim, Medina "radioed ahead to warn fellow monitor David Taylor that a suspicious kid was headed his way."

The Broward Sheriff's office as well as Broward County Public Schools said on Tuesday morning that they don't comment on active suits, according to The Post.

Hopefully this will provide us with more answers of what really went down that day, such as the issue of students seeing "multiple shooters dressed in swat-style gear" that day.

UK's State-run Healthcare System Fires Doctor Who Correctly Classified Gender of Children Reader 07/11/2018 (Wed) 16:42:34 Id: 659163 [Preview] No. 10899 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A Christian doctor has been fired from a top government role over his belief that gender is determined at birth [and ironically IT IS, but how dare we face!].

Dr David Mackereth, who has worked as an NHS doctor for 26 years, was deemed ‘unfit to work’ after he said he would refuse to identify patients by their preferred gender.

The senior doctor was told he could not be employed as a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) disability assessor if he refused to identify patients as being of a sex that they did not see themselves as.

The Telegraph reports: https://archive.fo/r5u56

The 55-year-old father of four believes sex is genetic and biological, so established at birth.

He confirmed his right to freedom of speech has been denied as he has been classed “unfit” to work for the department because of his religious convictions.

And, the medic from Dudley in the West Midlands fears many other professional people of faith could also be dismissed simply for knowing realities about gender.

Dr Mackereth, who registered as a doctor in 1989 and spent most of his career working in Accident & Emergency wards, said: “I’m not attacking the transgender movement. But, I’m defending my right to freedom of speech, and freedom of belief.

“I don’t believe I should be compelled to use a specific pronoun. I am not setting out to upset anyone. But, if upsetting someone can lead to doctors being sacked then, as a society we have to examine where we are going.”

Monsanto aggressively ‘bullied scientists’ and hid weedkiller cancer risks, a lawyer argued on Monday in a landmark lawsuit against the agrochemical corporation.

“Monsanto has specifically gone out of its way to bully and to fight independent researchers… they fought science,” attorney Brent Wisner told the court.

Johnson worked as a groundskeeper for a the school district in Benicia, just north of San Francisco, and was responsible for applying Roundup. Lawyers showed the jury photos of lesions and rashes on Johnson’s skin after he was regularly exposed to the chemical and was eventually diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in 2014, at age 42.

“The simple fact is he’s going to die. It’s just a matter of time,” Wisner said in court, as Johnson lowered his head and his wife cried in the seat next to him. “Between now and then, it’s just nothing but pain.”

Wisner, who said the trial would include commentary from 10 current or former Monsanto employees, also read aloud internal corporate documents obtained during the case. In response to one critical study about glyphosate exposure, Donna Farmer, product protection lead, wrote in an email: “How do we combat this?”

Wisner also referenced an email from Farmer in which she gave colleagues guidance on how they could publicly talk about science, writing: “You cannot say that Roundup does not cause cancer.” The Monsanto lawyer later said this comment had been taken out of context and presented in a misleading way.

A strategic corporate document also revealed Monsanto’s public relations plan to “orchestrate outcry” in advance of the IARC glyphosate classification, Wisner told the jury.

Wisner further cited Monsanto emails from decades prior, in which the company was working with a genotoxicity expert who reviewed a series of 1990s studies. He raised concerns about Roundup impacts on humans and suggested further areas of research. After the expert’s analyses, Monsanto representatives began considering finding a different expert and also started working on a press statement saying the product carried no risk, according to Johnson’s lawyer.

Wisner also read documents that he said showed how Monsanto strategized plans to “ghostwrite” favorable research.

Monsanto has continued to assert that its herbicide is safe, a claim that Johnson’s legal team is challenging, arguing that “scientific fraud” has contributed to Roundup marketing.

The hacker sought buyers for maintenance documents about the MQ-9 Reaper drone, a remotely controlled aerial vehicle used by the Pentagon and other parts of the government to conduct offensive strikes or reconnaissance and surveillance operations.

Discovery of the attempted sale of the stolen documents comes amid heightened concern about how U.S. military secrets may be insufficiently protected from hackers. Military officials said last month that the Defense Department’s inspector general was investigating a major security breach after Chinese hackers allegedly stole data pertaining to submarine warfare, including plans to build a supersonic antiship missile.

There was no evidence that the hacker who acquired the Reaper drone documents was affiliated with a foreign country, or that he was intentionally seeking to obtain military documents, said Andrei Barysevich, a senior threat researcher at Recorded Future, the U.S.-based cybersecurity firm that spotted the attempted sale. Instead, the hacker scanned large parts of the internet for misconfigured Netgear routers and exploited a two-year-old known vulnerability, involving default login credentials, to steal files from compromised machines.

Recorded Future said it has notified the Defense Security Service and the Department of Homeland Security about the hacker’s activities. A DHS spokesman said the agency was reviewing the information provided by Recorded Future but deferred further comment to the Air Force. The Air Force and DSS didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Posing as a potential buyer, researchers at the cyber firm contacted the seller, and during weeks of back-and-forth discussions were sent screenshots of the purportedly stolen documents. Those documents included the name of an Air Force captain stationed at the Creech Air Force Base in Nevada from whom the hacker is believed to have obtained the stolen drone files.

Serves them right. And if they continue the stupidity they'll keep having their secrets lifted. Why would you store military secrets in a fucking "cloud storage" dumb fucks!? Jesus Christ, even I keep my files more secure than that and I'm a no one. Air-gap your systems, use old-school Unix or Linux systems, store your sensitive stuff OFFLINE and in a locked up Faraday caged area with restricted access like NORMAL militaries do!



Elon Musk Throws A Fit After Thailand Navy SEALs Reject His "Robot Rescue", Successfully Save Kids In Cave Reader 07/11/2018 (Wed) 12:48:44 Id: 52d5a2 [Preview] No. 10891 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Elon Musk – continuing his recent streak of bizarre behavior - has publicly questioned the authority and expertise of one of the key individuals responsible for successfully navigating the rescue of 12 boys and one soccer coach trapped in a cave in Thailand.

If there has been one major world event that has brought people together and dominated the news over the course of the last several days, it has been this successful rescue. The rescue sparked jubilation and feel good headlines worldwide like this one, from the Guardian:

The group was trapped unexpectedly after the cave flooded due to heavy downpours and they were stranded for more than nine days before anybody was able to reach them or definitively figure out their location. 18 days later, all 12 boys and their coach were rescued successfully, thanks to the efforts of Thailand’s Navy SEALs and a collaborative effort by thousands of people who helped bring a happy ending to this national news story.

The ending was feel good for just about everybody – except Elon Musk.

Musk had thrust himself into the headlines of the story over the last few days as he frantically posted on social media about efforts that he was trying to lead to construct a device that could help rescue the trapped individuals.

Within the last 72 hours, Musk posted that his team of engineers had come up with an "escape pod" that they had tested locally in a swimming pool and were going to deploy to Thailand to try to help with the rescue efforts. Musk himself also wound up traveling to Thailand. Over the last 48 hours, Elon Musk and the story became intertwined with one another, with some people commending him for his efforts to try and help and others accusing him of trying to thrust himself into the spotlight of the national event where his help wasn’t specifically asked for.

Regardless, as the rescue effort took place over the course of several days and finally, when on Tuesday it was reported that all 12 children and the coach were in fact safe, Musk's "escape pod" wasn’t deployed or used in any fashion.

And instead of assuming that "all’s well that ends well" and being happy for the individuals who were rescued, Musk took it upon himself on Tuesday to actually question the authority of one of the joint commanders of the operation.

The Guardian picked up the story on Tuesday and wrote:

Elon Musk has questioned the expertise of Thai rescue officials who turned down his offer of a submarine, despite their having organised the successful rescue of all 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave.

The entrepreneur had offered his help and posted footage of tests being carried out on the apparatus he proposed in recent days.

But while Narongsak Osatanakorn, the head of the joint command centre co-ordinating the operation, acknowledged Musk’s offer he said that the mini submarine would not have been practical for the cave rescue.

“Even though their equipment is technologically sophisticated, it doesn’t fit with our mission to go in the cave,” Osatanakorn told reporters.

In response, Musk said Osatanakorn was “not the subject matter expert”, adding that he believed he had been “inaccurately described as rescue chief”, and should be more accurately referred to as the “former Thai provincial governor”.

After this, Musk said he was going to leave the mini-sub behind in case it becomes useful in the future.

And THIS is what subsidies do to companies, folks. They make them entitled, arrogant and out of touch with reality.

Musk, seriously, focus on fixing all the vulnerabilities with those overpriced hackable vehicles that the CIA still has backdoor access into. Stop complaining when a legit professional turns down a business offer. You rely on taxpayer dollars (subsidies) and are currently wasting more of our money. If it were not for those subsidies the free market would have killed your insolvent business LONG AGO.
