  • Hackers Showcase America's Vulnerabilities

    Among many claimed benefits, cryptocurrencies supposedly offer two significant benefits over fiat currencies: 1) autonomy and 2) discretion. This past week, the U.S. federal government took them both down. The U.S. Department of Justice issued a press statement that it had seized $2.3 million in cryptocurrency. The seizure was the result of the FBI's Colonial Pipeline investigation. As a reminder, Colonial Pipeline, the U.S.'s largest pipeline for refined oil products, was the victim of a cyberattack. Against the U.S.'s wishes and policies, Colonial Pipeline paid millions in ransom to retake control of the pipeline. According to the FBI, they had...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. border authorities arrested 210,000 migrants attempting to cross the border with Mexico in March, the highest monthly total in two decades and underscoring challenges in the coming months for U.S. President Joe Biden. The March total is a 24% increase from the same month a year earlier, when 169,000 migrants were picked up at the border, the start of a rise in migration that left thousands unaccompanied children stuck in crowded border patrol stations for days while they awaited placement in overwhelmed government-run shelters. Biden, a Democrat who took office in January 2021, pledged to reverse...

    Two Alabama men are accused of inciting or encouraging a riot after authorities said messages were spread online encouraging the spring break “takeover” of a Florida beach town, authorities said. More than 160 people were arrested, about 75 illegal guns were confiscated and several businesses closed during a wild weekend late last month in Panama City Beach, police said. Social media influencers and others promoted “Panamaniac” on Facebook and other social media platforms, authorities said. Demarion Ty’Quan Cooper, 20 and Rashad Boyce Glasper, 25, were arrested Thursday at their homes in the Alabama cities of Troy and Wetumpka, police said.

    Over 6,500 Russian citizens have been arrested over the past week after protesting against Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Demonstrations have expanded in recent days to 100 cities across Russia, with tens of thousands of protesters carrying signs and reading slogans against the war, while others laid wreaths near the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow. The Kremlin disapproved of the protests and had many of the demonstrators arrested. Videos released in recent days show mothers trying to explain to their frightened little children who have been arrested why they are behind bars. Most of the children were arrested when they went with...

    Another scandal for the "scandal-free" Obama administration. Not all ICE targets work construction or smuggle drugs. Some are key figures in the Dem machine. But the era of Obama corruption is over. There's a new sheriff in town. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week arrested two millionaire fugitives from Ecuador whose family donated heavily to American political campaigns. Roberto and William Isaías, 74 and 75, were detained Wednesday in Miami and taken to a detention facility for undocumented immigrants awaiting deportation, The New York Times reported Friday. ICE told the Times that the brothers were “unlawfully present” in...

    After invoking the “Emergencies Act” in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave not only the government extreme power of citizens, but now law enforcement are able to use excessive force when disbanding the protests. Recently, officers, fashioned in riot gear and wearing masks, pushed through the front lines of the protests, arresting fellow Canadians. But while there is no denying the violence being shown against the peaceful protesters making up the Freedom Convoy, the threat of being charged, imprisoned, and financially ruined might be nothing more than a scare tactic by the Canadian government. In the video, which is featured...

    President Joe Biden’s top Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials are set to issue a new memo that is likely to further cripple Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents’ ability to arrest illegal aliens. A class-action lawsuit, initially brought by a number of open borders groups, demanded recourse for illegal aliens who were arrested by ICE agents as part of “collateral arrests” in traffic stops and often without a judicial warrant.

    Iran, Turkey, and Venezuela's Super Facilitator: Who Is Slex Saab? On June 12, Alex Nain Saab Morán, a Colombian businessman of Lebanese  descent, was arrested at Amílcar Cabral International airport in Cape Verde. This was a huge blow to the Maduro regime’s illicit networks, as Saab is a key facilitator, involved in alleged corrupt dealings and money laundering in Venezuela since 2004.  His arrest was made after years of investigations on behalf of the U.S. and Colombia to uncover a myriad of shell companies that Saab; his business partner, Alvaro Pulido Vargas; and family members set up. Considered a fugitive in Colombia,...

    In 1836, James Bowie, William B. Travis, and 183-189 men defended the Alamo in Texas from one determined Mexican general-Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. The odds were not favorable for the brave men defending the Alamo against Santa Anna’s 1,800-6,000 attackers. The outcome was inevitable and 13days after the initial attack, Santa Anna was victorious. Those Texas defenders were tough and their death became a symbol of historic resistance. Fast forward 185 years and apparently the sacrifice of those brave men have been forgotten. Scenario #1: Biden refuses to shut the southern border and invites anyone and everyone to cross...

    Since supporters of then-President Donald Trump swarmed the US Capitol on January 6 — forcing Congress to go into lockdown and damaging the halls of government — 599 people have been arrested and charged with crimes. The FBI is seeking the public's help to identify people who took part in one of the most documented crimes in US history. But since many rioters were allowed to walk free on January 6, it's taking some time to track them down. This table includes the names, charges, and links to court documents of all the people charged so far. We're keeping it...

    As authorities investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol continue to pore over images and video of the riot, they've encountered a distressing trend: A growing number of alleged perpetrators had previously served their country. At least 52 active or retired military, law enforcement, or government service employees are among the over 400 suspects arrested for their alleged actions at the Capitol, according to an ABC News investigation based on military records, court records, interviews, and publicly available news reports. The arrests include over half a dozen ex-police officers and multiple former elected officials -- and represent some...
