The Kremlin dictator claimed, without providing evidence, that Britain's elite forces were training Ukrainian troops on how to damage atomic power lines in Russia. The despot threatened dire consequences for the UK while admitting his thinly veiled threat would be interpreted as 'nuclear blackmail'. Putin...

    London--Drug industry officials blamed for conspiring against people worldwide in the fraudulent World Health Organization (WHO) swine flu campaign of 2009, are now linked to two murdered journalists. The conspiracy, in which a third of the officials on the emergency committee are now criminally implicated for promoting a false fright to sell billions of dollars of "required" vaccinations, extends worldwide. Additional American journalists are threatened in this developing story. The first writers to bring the "PharmaWHO" fright and fraud to light, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, and Jane Burgermeister, are both in serious jeopardy from related reprisals.

    Special Counsel John Durham is not yet finished with his investigation into the Obamagate scandal, and a new report says his efforts have expanded. According to recent court filings, Durham has gained access to a significant amount of FBI internal affairs files in his effort to uncover the Obama administration’s maneuvers to promote bogus allegations against Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. Team Obama’s disingenuous investigation of the anti-Trump allegations, called Crossfire Hurricane, relied on the discredited Christopher Steele dossier, which was paid for by party activists. The Washington Times reports that “Three times in his 19-page submission Mr....

How much of your supply chain runs across the ocean?" "“The disruption of ships, ports, communications and shipping lanes is a genuine threat. This is crippling to the larger economy/larger supply chains—especially with things stretched thin today,” says Steve Moore, chief security strategist at Exabeam. “Amazon is even building its fleet with its own technology to control these problems more effectively.”"

    The nation’s leading expert on protecting the electric grid from attack urges governors to take the lead because the Biden administration won’t. In a new alert, Peter Vincent Pry, the executive director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security, said concerns are growing that Russia, North Korea, and Iran are inching closer to testing an electromagnetic attack on the U.S. grid, or parts of it. He noted the current crisis in Ukraine could spark a Russian attack, and he cited state media making the threat in the past. “In April 2021, during the previous big crisis between...

    A global conflict between the great powers of the world is already "in full swing,” according to a senior Russian diplomat, and it's happening in cyberspace.

The WikiLeaks publisher, 50, who is being held on remand in the maximum-security jail while fighting extradition to America, was left with a drooping right eyelid, memory problems and signs of neurological damage. He believes the mini-stroke was triggered by the stress of the ongoing US court action against him, and an overall decline in his health as he faces his third Christmas behind bars.

    ORIGINAL: The Michigan State Republican Party on Friday revealed that a software glitch caused 6,000 Republican ballots to be counted toward Democrat's totals. The issue was eventually corrected when officials in Antrim County hand-counted the ballots, which caused their county to flip to President Donald Trump. According to the Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman, 48 of the state's 83 counties use the same software from Dominion Voting Systems. There are now issues arising in Georgia in Spalding and Morgan Counties after it was revealed that a software update Monday night caused voting machines to crash on Election Day.

    Israel appears to be behind a cyberattack earlier this month on computers at Iran's Shahid Rajaee port that caused massive backups on waterways and roads leading to the facility, the Washington Post reported on Monday (May 18). Citing unnamed US and foreign government officials, the Post said the May 9 disruption of Iranian computers was presumably in retaliation for an earlier attempted cyberattack on rural water distribution systems in Israel. The Israeli Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters on the Post report. The managing director of Iran's Ports and Maritime Organisation, Mohammad...
