    Goodbye American Information Technology Worker After serving four years in the Army I took advantage of my VA benefits enrolling at DeVry University of Chicago to obtain a degree in Computer Science. I started my career in Information Technology (IT) in 1986. I saw this as a field that would pay the salary needed to support my young family. I was correct in that I was able to find employment immediately after graduation with a company in Chicago and I have been fortunate to work in this field for the past 31 years providing for my family. Today I find...

    Whistleblower Chelsea Manning, who is in federal custody in Alexandria, Va., is recovering after attempting to take her own life Wednesday, Manning’s legal team said in a statement. Andy Stepanian, a publicist for Manning, said Wednesday that Manning was hospitalized after the event and is currently recovering. “Ms. Manning is still scheduled to appear on Friday for a previously-calendared hearing, at which Judge Anthony Trenga will rule on a motion to terminate the civil contempt sanctions stemming from her May, 2019 refusal to give testimony before a grand jury investigating the publication of her 2010 disclosures,” Stepanian said in a...
  • China completes second round of US$29 billion Big Fund aimed at investing in domestic chip industry

    China is making swift progress on its 200 billion yuan (US$29.08 billion) fund aimed at investing in home-grown semiconductor development, as the world’s second-largest economy looks to reduce dependence on foreign chips amid a tech war with the US. New investment is likely to lean towards applications in the downstream supply chain, such as chip design, advanced materials and equipment areas, according to the report. The fundraising progress comes amid an escalating tech war with the US, which has seen China tone down statements on its wider “Made in China 2025” policy ambitions, after President Xi Jinping first called for...
  • Post Coronavirus - If You Survive (vanity)

    With almost hourly reports of new cases of Coronavirus popping up in American cities it feels as though the enemy is stealthily parachuting in nearly unseen during the night. We hear reports but they seem so innocuous and far away that we seemingly aren't all that alarmed. However, if one steps back and thinks through what a worst case or near worst case scenario might look like - we might be doing so in the final few weeks of what we will remember as our past lives, before the virus, wishing we would have soaked more of what we once...

    A court hearing has been scheduled for Friday in an unsolved Obama-era scandal involving the brothers hired by House Democrats who were fired when one was identified as “an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives.” That was when a computer server containing evidence had gone “missing,” noted Washington watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking information on the Awan brothers case, “The Awan Brothers IT scandal implicates national security and involves a cover-up by House Democrat leadership and, now, the Deep State DOJ,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. **SNIP** “In a...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court ordered a hearing for Friday, December 13, 2019, on the Congressional Democrat IT (information technology) scandal involving the Awan brothers. The hearing was ordered in accordance with a November 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, which was filed after the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) failed to respond adequately to two separate FOIA requests (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-02563)). Judicial Watch’s first request, filed on May 26, 2017, sought: All records related to any investigations or preliminary investigations involving former congressional IT support staffers...

    President Trump declared a national emergency in February in his most direct attempt to secure the funding for his signature campaign promise: a “big, beautiful” wall along the U.S.-Mexican border. But even if he gets the billions of more dollars he would need to be the border wall — which is actually a combination of vehicle barriers and pedestrian fencing — the massive construction project faces a major hurdle, according to legal experts: The people who live along the border may not want to give their land up to the government.

    No tension, no dread, no sense of peril, no suspense… Pennywise, the most incompetent killer clown in movie history, returns for It: Chapter 2, which isn’t very good, but at least it’s long. Oh, man, is this sucker long; just a few minutes shy of three hours, and you feel every minute of it. Length is not necessarily a problem, not even when it comes to It. Stephen King’s 1986 novel is close to 1200 pages and plenty engrossing. The 1990 television miniseries is over three hours (it was originally broadcast over two nights), and while it’s not scary, Tim...

    A date has been set for the trial of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, 35, who could face up to 20 years in prison and millions of dollars in fines for fraud. U.S. District Court Judge Edward Davila on Friday scheduled the criminal trial for Holmes and her former deputy and ex-boyfriend, Ramesh 'Sunny' Balwani, 54, for August 4 of next year, with jury selection kicking off the week before. The pair face will face trial in federal court on charges that they lied to doctors and patients about test results and deceived investors about the finances of the now-defunct Silicon...

    Rose Gottemoeller said the next generation will change how cyber defense is handled A U.S. government official said that cyber defense has been slow-moving due to the current generation of policymaker's lack of technological understanding. Rose Gottemoeller, U.S. Acting Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security, recently visited the Estonian IT College in Tallinn to deliver a speech about cyber attacks and defense. In this lecture, she noted that a major issue with current cyber defense is the fact that many policymakers around the world don't fully understand technology used today. "The truth is there are a lot of senior...
  • JW Inside Report: How the Deep State Risked National Security over the Awan Bros. Scandal

    In this episode of “JW Inside Report,” investigative reporter Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller discusses his findings on the Awan Bros/Democrat IT scandal in his new book “Obstruction of Justice.” A Democratic IT staffer named Imran Awan was arrested in July 2017 on charges of bank fraud. He was employed with Debbie Wasserman Shultz and other congressional members. He is also a suspect in a cybersecurity investigation, having been banned from congressional networks earlier in the year. In addition, his relatives, also government IT employees, are currently being investigated for alleged involvement in defrauding the federal government as well...

    Imran Awan worked as Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s email server administrator in the House of Representatives. Nearly his entire family then joined the payroll of other Democrats, until they worked for 1 in 5 House Democrats and had — as the House inspector general called it — the ‘keys to the kingdom‘ and ability to access any file. 1. Imran worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz since 2004 and had the passwords to her devices A search of his name on WikiLeaks shows the DNC summoned Imran when they needed her device unlocked. (cont'd)

    **SNIP** “[I]n the July 2018 plea agreement,” writes Gingrich, “the DOJ stated that approximately 40 witnesses were interviewed throughout the duration of the investigation. Upon further examination, this number seems substantially inadequate for an investigation potentially involving so many individuals.” If investigators had simply interviewed all the members of Congress who Imran Awan and his crew worked for they would have had to speak with more than 40 people. As $120,000 in missing equipment is known to have been illegally written-off in just one member’s office Imran Awan was involved with (Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y.), investigators would have also clearly...

    **SNIP** The cover-up has been so effective that this isn't happening. Imran Awan, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.)'s I.T. aide, got off without jail time or restitution on only bank fraud charges. Congress got off without paying the price for possible corruption and for allowing a spy ring to run free in Congress. We can't even be sure that Congress has made the necessary reforms to stop another spy ring from infiltrating and spying on Congress and thereby using stolen data to blackmail a congressman, influence a vote, or just know where members of Congress stand on various pieces of...
