  • Why was Senator Mark Warner using Signal and Disappearing Messages if he had Nothing to Hide?

    02/09/2018 1:44:19 PM PST · by bitt · 59 replies ^ | 2/9/2018 | Mark Cernovich
    Mark Warner was texting a Russian oligarch using an encrypted app, Signal, and his messages were set to automatically delete. FoxNews broke a huge story about Senator Mark Warner, which has been discussed elsewhere. What I haven’t seen anyone else cover is the fact that the “text messages” were not ordinary messages. Warner was communicating via Signal, an encrypted app. Moreover, Warner had his messages set to disappear. (The hour glass icon in the text exchange.)

    FORT HUACHUCA — Sounds of gunfire, explosives and soldiers yelling filled the brisk morning air Saturday as Company C of the 40th Expeditionary Signal Battalion held defensive live firing training. The training was held on range 1B — a fairly new addition to Fort Huachuca. This exercise was only the second live firing done on the range. Before it opened, the option the teams had for a similar experience involved traveling to Fort Bliss in Texas. “We don’t do live fire on other ranges (on the fort),” Tanja Linton, a spokeswoman for Fort Huachuca, said. First Lieutenant and 40th Expeditionary...

    Day-trippers and tourists complained they don’t know which way to turn while crossing streets in central London after being confronted by a series of arrows pointing in different directions. Around 50 sets of traffic lights near busy Trafalgar Square had their “walk” and “green man” images replaced with the new designs in June to coincide with an annual Gay Pride Festival.

    FORT HUACHUCA — “We will never forget,” Maj. Gen. John B. Morrison, Jr., told an audience of soldiers and civilians attending the annual Signal Cove of Remembrance observance Thursday morning at the Network Enterprise Technology Command on Fort Huachuca. It was the first time in the eight years since the cove was established that the annual ceremony did not add the name of another fallen soldier to the memorial, which is located just inside Greely Hall at the entrance to NETCOM. “Today’s ceremony is a time for all of us to remember the 101 signal soldiers and civilians who sacrificed...

    "We either caught something shortly after an event like two planets crashing together or alien intelligence," said Dr. Gerald Harp, senior scientist at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California, referring to the baffling light variations seen in the Kepler star KIC 8462852. And he and a team from the Institute are working hard at this moment to determine which of the two it is. Beginning last Friday (Oct. 16), the Institute's Allen Telescope Array (ATA) was taken off its normal survey schedule and instead focused on KIC 8462852, one of the 150,000-plus stars studied by NASA's Kepler Mission to...

    In 2008 NASA decided to send one of the heights of modern art — The Beatles' 1969 track "Across the Universe" — into the cosmos. And for 2013, one of the pillars of internet folk art is preparing for takeoff: An animated GIF is about to be sent into space for the first time ever. The message will be beamed over a giant radio dish in California tomorrow as part of the inaugural transmission of Lone Signal, a project that's hoping to communicate with extraterrestrials. The GIF will be sent toward Gliese 526, a potentially habitable solar system 17.6...

    Ever heard of Al-Aqsa TV? You may think you haven’t, but if you’re a longtime HA reader I’ll bet you have. They’re responsible for the charming children’s characters Farfour, the Jew-hating mouse; Nahoul, the Jew-hating bee; and Assud, the Jew-eating rabbit. Apart from their stellar children’s programming, they’re known for Holocaust revisionism and various forms of pro-terrorist/anti-semitic propaganda. Per Philip Klein, the Treasury Department designated Al-Aqsa TV as an arm of Hamas three years ago and therefore subjected it to U.S. sanctions imposed on officially recognized terrorist groups. (“Treasury will not distinguish between a business financed and controlled by a...

    PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) — Rick Santorum is tired, almost broke — and going home. The former Pennsylvania senator is taking a pause from Florida campaigning just days before the Tuesday primary that even he expects to deal him a third consecutive loss. Santorum says he would rather spend his Saturday sitting at his kitchen table doing his taxes than campaigning in a state where the race for the Republican presidential nomination has become a two-man fight between Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. The cash-strapped candidate acknowledges that he simply can't keep up with the GOP front-runners in Florida. "We're...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Virginia's state Senate elections next week are shaping up as an early signal for President Barack Obama ahead of national elections next year. Republicans have a strong shot at taking control of the state Senate from Democrats on Tuesday, political analysts said. A win would put state government solidly in Republican hands in an important swing state, and mark a sharp turnaround from 2008, when Obama became the first Democrat to win Virginia since 1964. Political analysts said loss of the 40-seat state Senate to Republicans would be a bad sign for Obama as he seeks to...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The job market is defying history. A dismal June employment report shows that employers are adding nowhere near as many jobs as they normally do this long after a recession has ended. Unemployment has climbed for three straight months and is now at 9.2 percent. There's no precedent, in data going back to 1948, for such a high rate two years into what economists say is a recovery. The economy added just 18,000 jobs in June. That's a fraction of the 90,000 jobs economists had expected and a sliver of the 300,000 jobs needed each month to...

    An astronomer picked up a mysterious pulse of light coming from the direction of the newly discovered Earth-like planet almost two years ago, it has emerged. Dr Ragbir Bhathal, a scientist at the University of Western Sydney, picked up the odd signal in December 2008, long before it was announced that the star Gliese 581 has habitable planets in orbit around it. Dr Bhathal had been sweeping the skies when he discovered a 'suspicious' signal from an area of the galaxy that holds the newly-discovered Gliese 581g. The remarkable coincidence adds another layer of mystery to the announcement last night...

    MELISSA, Tx -- Mark Robinson was driving through downtown Melissa last week when he was pulled over for failing the use his turn signal. But instead of getting a ticket, the officer took the 24-year-old to jail. He was booked, strip searched, and sat for 3 hours with criminals. “People talking about using drugs and shooting heroine. They asked me what I was in there for and I said a turn signal violation,” said Robinson. There aren't any warrants out for Robinson. In fact he says he's never been in jail. But he does admit to challenging the officer's questions...
