    The ex-CIA software engineer suspected of leaking a massive, highly secret trove of U.S. hacking tools and source code to WikiLeaks has been charged in federal court with a series of Espionage Act violations. Joshua Schulte, 29, allegedly disclosed thousands of top-secret files outlining the extent of the CIA’s cyberwarfare capabilities in an unprecedented breach that triggered an intensive investigation even before WikiLeaks published the information in March 2017.

    **SNIP** Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the “Hillary Victory Fund” (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio. He has also been considered by California to be one of the state's biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the Kremlin. The donor, Edgar Sargsyan, contributed $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings, ands chaired a $100,000-a-couple Clinton fundraiser in Beverly Hills in September 2016.

    The West Point graduate, who last year posed in a picture holding a cap that had “Communism will win” written inside, is officially out of the U.S. Army with an other-than-honorable discharge. Spenser Rapone rocked the military community last year after his social media posts were revealed, showing him wearing a Che Guevara shirt underneath his military uniform.

    In case you needed another reason to feel far older than you actually are, a new survey by music streaming platform Deezer, via NME, suggests that by the time you hit 30, you reach something called “musical paralysis.” That means 30-year-olds have hit the threshold when they no longer seek out new music, or are open to listening to something new and beyond their established taste.... Survey participants gave various reasons for just why they’ve checked out of the music scene, mostly citing having children and too demanding a job to keep up with what’s new. A considerable 65 per...

    “They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are. There are concerns about whether all of them can be sent back, but I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families… We have to send a clear message: Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay. We don’t want to send a message that’s contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.”

    Obama administration placed children with human traffickers, report says The Obama administration failed to protect thousands of Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border since 2011, leaving them vulnerable to traffickers and to abuses at the hands of government-approved caretakers, a Senate investigation has found. The Office of Refugee Resettlement, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, failed to do proper background checks of adults who claimed the children, allowed sponsors to take custody of multiple unrelated children, and regularly placed children in homes without visiting the locations, according to a 56-page investigative report...

    Michael Caputo: INVESTIGATING THE DEMOCRAT DECEPTION In late May 2016, a man calling himself Henry Greenberg contacted Trump advisors Michael Caputo and Roger Stone offering negative information on Hillary Clinton. Both Stone and Caputo refused Greenberg’s offer, but in his May 2, 2018 interview with the Office of Special Counsel, Caputo noted the Mueller team knew far more than he did about the Greenberg approach. This set off alarms. Following his OSC interview, Michael Caputo deployed the financial resources of the Michael Caputo Legal Fund to investigate Henry Greenberg in the United States and Russia. The results of this investigation...

    Deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah, as expected, is making a power play to get his boss Sarah Sanders’ job as Press Secretary, according to multiple inside sources. Mike Cernovich reports on Shah’s alleged duplicity: Raj Shah leaked that story about Sarah Huckabee Sanders leaving the WH to drive a wedge between her and POTUS, so he could hopefully get her spot. Raj thought by including himself in the article, it'd throw people off the trail. My WH sources all laughing about this. Shah, a former Republican National Committee staffer, is known for marginalizing the independent media in...

    North Korean diplomats talking to South Korean officials in the demilitarized border zone between the two countries reportedly offered to remove the North's long-range artillery guns, which have been a dagger pointed at Seoul's throat for decades. Before North Korea tested its first nuclear weapon, before it even built its first facility to create fissile material, its artillery had established a strong deterrent against South Korea and the US. North Korea is estimated to have thousands of massive artillery guns hidden in hardened shelters among the hills and mountains of the country's rugged terrain. Artillery batteries located within range of...

    “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams told his large following on social media this week that President Trump’s critics are running out of psychological “trap doors” to explain his effectiveness. One of the first social commentators to predict Mr. Trump’s campaign success says his historic meeting in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is likely to produce large amounts of cognitive dissonance. “It may be my imagination, but I thought in the last few days online on Twitter that the level of vitriol and insult for Trump supporters and anybody who says anything about him is higher than I’ve seen in...

    Africans trying to reach Europe are being sold by their captors in "slave markets" in Libya, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) says. Victims told IOM that after being detained by people smugglers or militia groups, they were taken to town squares or car parks to be sold. Migrants with skills like painting or tiling would fetch higher prices, the head of the IOM in Libya told the BBC. Libya has been in chaos since the 2011 Nato-backed ousting of Muammar Gaddafi.(snip) An IOM staff member in Niger said they confirmed the reports of auctions in Libya with several other...

    SAN DIEGO — U.S. House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi will be in San Diego Monday to visit the U.S.-Mexico border in San Ysidro, and to tour a facility housing undocumented immigrant children who have been separated from their families or who arrived in the country unaccompanied. Pelosi is travelling with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other members of Congress. **SNIP** As a result of enforcing that policy, families who cross illegally have been separated from their children, because those accompanying the children are put into the criminal justice system.

    In the war over documents between the House and Senate committees investigating the FBI and other intelligence abuses and the FBI/Department of Justice, you might wonder why Congress keeps whining. After all, they say “We asked for these documents a year ago and still don’t have them!” “Why weren’t these sections included in what we requested?” And so on. You have probably heard that Congress has “oversight” powers over these executive departments and agencies. In a sense that’s true, although there was no Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1789. Indeed, there is no Department of Justice mentioned in the Constitution...
