China and Iran Move Into Western Hemisphere Through Venezuela

Published

on

WASHINGTON — Top-level national security sources are revealing new details about the Chinese and Iranian plan to move into North American waters.

For years, the two countries planned to build government installations in the Caribbean and Venezuela. Some of these bases of operation are already built and maintained with full-time employees.

China, which holds a mutual-defense treaty with North Korea, and Iran, which maintains positions in South America, are coming under new scrutiny at the highest levels of the U.S. government. For years, U.S. leaders proved ignorant or apathetic to these advances in the Western Hemisphere. Socialist president Nicolas Maduro holds power in Venezuela, which is ravaged by financial crisis.

China and Iran’s moves are now finally coming to light:

China Launched A Satellite For Venezuela

The Chinese alliance with Venezuela became visible last month, when the Chinese government launched a surveillance satellite from the Gobi desert for use by Venezuela.

Nasaspaceflight.com reported:
China launched the second remote sensing satellite for Venezuela using a Long March-2D (Chang Zheng-2D) launch vehicle on Monday. This was the first use of the CZ-2 rocket after a mishap occurred in December 2016 with the first Gaojing mission. The failure caused major disruption to the Chinese launch schedule.
the VRSS-2 (Venezuela Remote Sensing Satellite-2) is the second remote sensing satellite built by China to Venezuela after the VRSS-1 Francis Miranda (2012-055A) launched on September 29, 2012, using a Long March-2 launch vehicle from Jiuquan. The contract for the launch of VRSS-2 was signed in October 2014″

China, which chairs the U.N. Security Council, also supported Iran’s launch of a rocket carrying a satellite into space.

China has been moving into the Carribean for the past several years.

China built a port on a remote island of The Bahamas 180 miles off the U.S. coast, prompting suspicion from locals who are concerned about China’s potential military ambitions in the area. The port is staffed by Chinese workers but is not operational for trade.

During the construction of the port, a top official with The Bahamas’ then-ruling progressive party vowed that “China will actively provide military assistance to the Bahamas and defense dialogue.”

Bahamian sources say that residents are afraid to talk about the new Chinese installation in Coopers Town, which has a population of 676 on the island of Abaco.

Iranian Warships Move Into The Gulf Of Mexico

Iranian warships are moving into the Gulf of Mexico to interact with Venezuela’s presence in the region.

“Our fleet of warships will be sent to the Atlantic Ocean in the near future and will visit one of the friendly states in South America and the Gulf of Mexico,” said Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi.

Iran and Venezuela have a longstanding relationship.

In 2011, former CIA agent Chet Nagle reported for the Daily Caller on an agreement between Iran and Venezuela to build a joint military base. Nagle reported:

“On November 25th, the respected German journal Die Welt published a report that Iran and Venezuela agreed on October 19th to build a joint military base. That complex will include medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBMs) like the Shahab-3 (range 1,200 miles) and Scud-B and Scud-C missiles (range 185-340 miles). Those weapons will enable Chavez to make missile strikes on much of South America, the Caribbean Basin and, with the Shahab-3, even American cities…

Iran has already built what it calls a “tractor factory” in Venezuela, the most heavily guarded and secret tractor factory in the world. The fenced compound is so secret that even Venezuelans are not allowed to enter it; only Iranians are allowed inside. (There are reports that Ahmadinejad visited the facility some months ago.) The factory is in a remote area, not far from a uranium deposit former Venezuelan officials estimate holds 50,000 tons of ore.”

Die Welt reported:

“Iran is building intermediate- range missile launch pads on the Paraguaná Peninsula, and engineers from a construction firm – Khatam al-Anbia – owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguaná in February. Amir al-Hadschisadeh, the head of the Guard’s Air Force, participated in the visit, according to the report. Die Welt cited information from “Western security insiders.””

Hugo Chavez was photographed with Iranian paramilitary leader Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Nadqi, purportedly in 2009, and frequently convened meetings with then-Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.:

Center for a Secure Free Society

The Hill reported last August after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s visit to six Latin American nations:

“Earlier this month, the Brazilian journalist Leonardo Coutinho confirmed the strategic importance of Latin America to Iran’s military program in the magazine La Veja. Coutinho exposed an official document dated Aug. 3, 2009, showing that then-Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez had approved a $1.3-million investment for a joint venture between Venezuela’s state defense contractor, CAVIM, and Iran’s Parchin Chemical Industries. The project involved the establishment and improvement of facilities for producing nitrocellulose and nitroglycerine, both key components of solid rocket fuel. Cooperation between Iran and Venezuela’s military sectors has been well-known for years, but it was the first time an official document has emerged showing Chávez’s approval of joint military industrial projects. The sum is trivial, but the timing and the partnerships are of critical importance.”

Former Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was feted at deceased Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez’s funeral.

FBI Agent Assigned to Weiner Case Alluded to Child Porn on Laptop

Published

on

Buried in the middle of page 303 in the IG report is testimony from an FBI Agent assigned to the 2016 Anthony Weiner case that seems to have gone unnoticed since the document as released.

“Why isn’t anybody here,” asked the case agent rhetorically while testifying to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). Like, if I’m the supervisor of any [Criminal Informant] squad in Seattle and I hear about this, I’m getting on with headquarters and saying, ‘hey, some agent working child porn here may have [Hillary Clinton] emails.'”

Read the quote in full context here:

“In an October 3 email, the case agent stated that a ‘significant number’ of emails on the Weiner laptop appeared to be ‘between Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton’ (the latter who appears to have used a number of different email addresses,” the report says.

According to this section of the report, there were several emails found on Weiner’s laptop between Abedin and Clinton, and that same laptop may also have had child porn on it. Weiner is currently serving a 21 month sentence in Federal Prison for sexting a 15-year-old girl, and will be required to register as a a sex offender upon his release.

More broadly, the case agent assigned to Weiner’s case was explaining to the OIG that the FBI took no action to investigate Weiner’s laptop, and he could not understand why.

According to the case agent, he documented to his supervisor, an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) for the Southern District of New York whom he describes as a “friend,” his concerns with the investigation several times, starting with the October 3 email. He was hoping that the AUSA would contact District Attorney Preet Bharara and get him involved. Apparently, she did not.

“And I told [the AUSA], ‘I’m a little scared here,'” he said. “I don’t know what to do because I’m not political. Like, I don’t care who wins this election, but this is going to make us look really, really horrible.”

Two and a half weeks after initially alerting the AUSA about his concerns, on October 19, the case agent met with the AUSA in person. A second AUSA was present. Still, nothing was accomplished.

The case agent’s story of FBI inaction fits with disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok’s actions during the “investigation.” Big League Politics reported that Strzok slow-played the Weiner laptop search warrant:

“FBI agent Peter Strzok emailed the draft copy of the Anthony Weiner search warrant to himself on his private email address days before the election, which allowed him to make changes to the warrant without being detected by FBI documentation. This revelation came out in the Michael Horowitz inspector general report.

If Strzok had printed out the draft warrant at his office, it would be subject to official FBI records. But instead he sent it to his private email on October 29, which allowed him to print it off at home. Insiders believe that Strzok showed the draft warrant to other people, despite the warrant being under seal by a federal judge.

The Anthony Weiner warrant ended up being limited in scope, leaving out some of the private email domains that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin used to send each other classified information.”

BLP Passage Ends.

According to the OIG report, the case agent “was, getting, for lack of a better word, paranoid, that like, somebody was not acting appropriately, somebody was trying to bury this.”

Even members of the FBI were suspicious that the FBI was covering for the Clinton machine. What exactly were they covering up?

Trump To Meet With Putin In July

Published

on

Just days after a historic meeting in Singapore with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump is setting his sights on Russia.

Friday morning, President Trump took a stroll on the front lawn of the White House, stopping for an impromptu interview with Steve Doocy from Fox & Friends-marking the first time any American president has held an unannounced and unexpected meeting with the press on the grounds of the White House.

During the half-hour long interview with Doocy, President Trump discussed the possibility of meeting with Putin, “ We may, and it started because a reporter shouted to me, ‘Should Putin be in the G7?’, I said no, he should be in the G8.”

“President Trump is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin next month while he is in Europe for a NATO summit,” The Washington Post wrote, citing “a senior administration official and two diplomats familiar with his schedule.”

According to the newspaper, Trump’s “interest in a meeting with Putin became public in March after the Kremlin disclosed that Trump extended an invitation in a phone call with the Russian leader. But US officials say Trump privately has been asking his aides for a bilateral meeting ever since he met with Putin in Vietnam in November on the sidelines of a multilateral economic summit.” “After that meeting, the president said he wanted to invite Putin to the White House,” a US official said as cited by The Washington Post. “We ignored it,” the official added.

The Washington Post went on to explain that, “at the time, top aides in the National Security Council opposed the idea of a meeting and said they didn’t view Trump’s interest in a summit as an order to set one up.” ‘They decided: Let’s wait and see if he raises it again,” said the official.

Tuesday, June 5th, President Vladimir Putin told an Austrian news outlet-ahead of his visit to Vienna-that he speaks with President Donald Trump “regularly”. This was in response to a question about special counsel Robert Mueller’s February indictment of three Russian organizations and 13 Russians when bringing up his relationship to the American president.

Putin has denied Russian meddling in the U.S. election stating, “patriotically minded” hackers may have been involved, but that they were separate from the Russian government.

“Indeed Donald Trump and I have, firstly, met more than once at various international venues,” Putin said according to an official transcript from the Kremlin’s website. “And secondly, we regularly talk over the phone,” he said.

According to readouts available on the White House website, this makes the eighth time the two presidents have spoken by phone since President Trump was elected.

Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, when asked about a potential meeting said, “we don’t exclude” the possibility but that no specifics have been discussed, reported the Associated Press.

Richard Hooker, senior White House official in charge of Europe, told Russian news agency Tass on Thursday, that the White House had been exploring the idea of meeting in Austria, boasting close ties with Moscow and Washington.

The Russian economy was dealt a heavy blow back in April by the Trump administration when sweeping sanctions were imposed against Russian oligarchs.

Trump also said on Friday, “I think it’s better to have Russia in than to have Russia out. Because just like North Korea, just like somebody else, it’s much better if we get along with them.”

The U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman is currently arranging delegations for Republican senators to visit Moscow, which will end the drought of congressional trips to Russia since the U.S.-Russia relationship hit historic lows after Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine. After a military intervention in Crimea in 2014, Russia was banned from the group, something that President Trump has been very outspoken about blaming on Obama.

“President Obama lost Crimea because President Putin didn’t respect President Obama, didn’t respect our country and didn’t respect Ukraine,” Trump said Friday to a group of reporters on the front lawn of the White House.

Per usual, many are doubting the meeting will be very productive, but look at all that doubted President Trump could de-escalate the tensions with North Korea, let alone his ability to not only meet with Kim Jong Un, but to begin the full denuclearization of the country. There were naysayers then too.

President Trump has continued to fulfil promises made, and to leave the mainstream media scrambling for ways to spin events they thought they would never have to cover in their career–especially not with the person they loathe the most, U.S. President Donald J. Trump.

Paul Manafort Sent to Jail over Alleged Witness Tampering

Published

on

The former campaign chairmen for President Donald J. Trump has been ordered to jail pending trial for alleged money laundering and failure to register as an agent of a foreign government.

“The harm in this case is harm to the administration of justice and harm to the integrity of the court’s system,” Judge Amy Berman Jackson told Paul Manafort in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

Manafort is accused of calling and texting potential witnesses in upcoming trial. He was originally given a $10 million bail and sentenced to house arrest while his charges were pending. Manafort also entered a not guilty plea for witness tampering charges. His trial is set for September.

“I feel badly about a lot of it because I think a lot of it is very unfair,” said Trump.“I feel a little badly about it. They went back 12 years to get things that he did 12 years ago.”

The original charges are unconnected to alleged Russian “collusion”during the 2016 election for which there is still no proof, but Manafort was swept up in the investigation for his connection to the Trump campaign. His alleged wrongdoing took place a decade ago, well before his involvement with Trump.
