  • Chinese scientists guilty of ‘researching while Asian’ in Trump’s America

    South China Morning Post ^ | 06/29/2019 | Peter Waldman
    The dossier on cancer researcher Wu Xifeng was thick with intrigue, if hardly the stuff of a spy thriller. It contained findings that she’d im­properly shared confi­den­tial information and accepted a half-dozen advisory roles at medical institutions in China. She might have weathered those allegations, but for a larger aspersion that was far more problematic: she was branded an oncological double agent. In recent decades, cancer research has become increasingly globalised, with scientists around the world pooling data and ideas to jointly study a disease that kills almost 10 million people a year. International collaborations are an intrinsic part of...

    Iran executed an ex-contract employee on charges of spying for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, Reuters reported Saturday. Jalal Hajizavar left his post at the aerospace organization of the Iranian defense ministry nine years ago. He was convicted by a military court after an investigation which discovered documents and spying equipment at his home, according to Reuters, which cited an IRIB news agency report. Hajizavar was reportedly executed at the Rajai Shahr prison in Karaj, west of Tehran.

    The Shin Bet revealed an attempt by Iranian intelligence to set up an espionage infrastructure in Israel and arrested Taar Shafoot, a Jordanian citizen born in Hebron. During the Shin Bet interrogation, it was revealed that Shafoot, a Jordanian businessman, had entered Israel on behalf of Iranian intelligence to carry out missions intended to promote the establishment of infrastructure in Israel and in Judea and Samaria that would serve secret activities of the Iranians. The connection between Shafoot and Iranian intelligence began in Lebanon, where he met two Arabic-speaking handlers from Iranian intelligence, who called themselves Abu Sadek and Abu...

    Of late I have been watching what I consider to be some pretty good spy shows. So I am going to list them. I have ROKU and most of these I found available on streaming channels. Epix Channel: Here is found two really good shows worth watching: "Berlin Station" series set in modern Berlin of the CIA station there. "Deep State": Modern day spy series set in the U.S., England, and the Middle East. The plot is pretty believable and concerns the Military Industrial Complex. On Showtime I have been binge watching "Homeland". Great show and plot, I have just...

    A database containing records of tens of millions of users of various dating apps has been found publicly accessible, according to a researcher who says it remains unclear who amassed the data. In a blog Wednesday, security researcher Jeremiah Fowler said he discovered the database and that it was not protected by so much as a password. The 42.5 million records, which appeared to belong to multiple apps, were stored on a U.S.-based server and largely contained the IP addresses and location data of American users. The apps to which the data belongs include Cougardating, Christiansfinder, Mingler, Fwbs (friends with...

    How many FBI informants were run against Trump’s people? Were there other “honey traps,” such as Azra Turk, sent to flirt with and extract information from Trump aides in the hope of using the information to continue to justify their spying? We know that this wasn’t the first informant, nor the last, given that Turk was also accompanied by longtime FBI informant and University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper while attempting to essentially entrap Papadopoulos. It also can’t be forgotten that Halper reached out to more Trump campaign aides along the way too, such as Carter Page and Sam Clovis....

    A US national Wednesday pleaded guilty to the charges of helping and supporting Pakistan-based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba involved in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. Michael Kyle Sewell, 18, who was arrested in February, admitted to encouraging an individual, identified in court documents only as coconspirator 1, to join Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). He now faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to USD 250,000. The sentencing is scheduled for August 12. According to the guilty plea, Sewell provided the coconspirator, who he spoke to on social media, with contact information for an individual he believed could...

    Former FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that "it sure looks like" President Donald Trump had criminal intent to commit obstruction of justice during special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. At a CNN town hall in Washington, Anderson Cooper asked Comey whether, based on the redacted version of Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, he believed Trump had criminal intent to commit obstruction. "It sure looks like he did, in connection with a couple episodes -- the direction to (former White House counsel) Don McGahn to get the special counsel fired is to my mind a flaming example"...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is scrutinizing the findings in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report about Joseph Mifsud -- the mysterious professor from Malta who helped ignite the Russia probe in 2016 – and wants to know exactly who he was working for when he spoke with former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos. It has long been suggested that Mifsud was connected to Russian intelligence. But Nunes, in a Friday letter obtained by Fox News, questions that assumption, saying Mueller’s report “omits any mention of a wide range of contacts Mifsud had with Western political institutions and individuals.” Mifsud is...

    It’s beginning to look like Obama has been spying on all sorts of Americans way before he spied on Trump. The list of victims just keeps getting longer: Congressmen, reporters, probably judges as well when he was not having them smothered with pillows. This is way beyond Watergate, this is activity that endangered the very fabric of American freedom itself. If not for Hillary losing who knows how bad the state of the republic would be today? This was a crime against America, indeed civilization itself, because America is its best defender. It needs a label worthy of the crime....

    The wife of former Chief of Staff to Mike Pence Joshua Pitcock was working for Peter Strzok and investigating into Hillary Clinton’s crimes. This comes after it was reported on Thursday that lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were “cultivating sources” to spy and inform them on President Trump. It is not clear at this point Pitcock’s involvement in this development. Sara Carter has more: The texts and sources reveal that Strzok had one significant contact within the White House – Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Joshua Pitcock, whose wife was working as an analyst for Strzok on...

    The Federalist ^ | 4/11/19 | David Harsanyi
    Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, publisher of whistleblowers, and Vladimir Putin’s lackey, was arrested in London on behalf of the U.S. government for “computer related offences” after Ecuador withdrew its asylum protection. Assange, who had skipped on bail in the summer of 2012 when under investigation for sexual assault and rape in Sweden, took up residency in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for the next seven years. Assange’s transparent cooperation with Russian intelligence in its efforts to undermine American interests and embarrass the United States is hardly in question. The notion Assange is a non-ideological warrior fighting to expose the...

    Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning wants out of a Virginia jail — and is getting support from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manning, 31, who was jailed on March 8 on contempt charges by a federal judge for refusing to testify to a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks, wants to be released as the judge’s order is appealed. Manning, 31, is also asking to not be required to testify, reiterating her stance earlier this month to Virginia federal Judge Claude Hilton that she has no intention of doing so. Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday that Manning has been “trapped in solitary confinement” for refusing...

    A 32-year-old Chinese woman, who said she wanted to talk to President Trump’s family about economic relations between the United States and her home country, lied her way into Mar-a-Lago over the weekend before she was arrested, U.S. Secret Service agents said. Yujing Zhang, who said she was sent by a fellow Chinese national named Charles, was charged with making false statements to a federal officer and entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds. She appeared in U.S. District Court on Monday and a public defender was appointed to represent her. She is to return to court next...

    A former U.S. Air Force intelligence specialist accused of espionage for Iran, Monica Witt, was allegedly radicalized in part during a stint at a George Washington University, which has taken $100 million from Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries.

In some cases, the programs have been staffed by academics who are critical of U.S. policy and who publicly espouse fringe positions. Witt was charged Feb. 13 by the Department of Justice with sharing government secrets with Iranian officials. She was allegedly helping create a cyber-hacking operation on fellow former...

Witt had been given high-level security clearances and had been deployed to the Middle East, prosecutors said. “Monica Witt is charged with revealing to the Iranian regime...
