This is interesting and frightening

By Patrick Van Roy On June 13th, 2021 at 5:13 pm

The FBI is reeling over the weekend after learning that a “high ranking” Chinese defector to the United States with knowledge of the nation’s bioweapons was recently obtained by the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and kept a secret and hidden from the FBI for three months.  The news broke Friday by former Fox News reporter Adam Housley.

“Being told the increased pressure on China in recent days is due to a defector with intimate knowledge,” Housley reported. “In fact, Wray didn’t know right away because they wanted to make sure they got all they needed before telling him.” 

“Also…US intelligence believes China is trying to produce variants that suggest it came from bats to cover up that it originally came from a lab,” Housley continued. “The belief is still that it escaped accidentally, but was allowed to spread.”

According to RedState’s Jen Van Laar, FBI Director Wray was “ambushed” by the news of the defector, and the CIA was also kept in the dark. According to the DIA, this was done with precautions to keep the defector from suspected Chinese moles in those security agencies.

The reason for the Title of the Post……

One of the reasons Osama Bin Laden was able to accomplish 9/11 was that the different U.S. Intel Communities didn’t talk to each other. The creation of the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) was specifically done to solve this Problem along with the Patriot Act to make it Legal for Foreign Intelligence to be shared with Domestic Intelligence Agencies. Before 9/11 this did not happen and apparently it is STILL NOT HAPPENING.

The Chicom Flu aside if this story is accurate it says we are vulnerable due to the same INCOMPETENCE we suffered from prior to the last attack on the U.S. that claimed 2,996 people’s lives.

Tit for Tat

The White House has said Biden will bring up ransomware attacks emanating from Russia at the meeting. That issue is in the spotlight after a cyber attack disrupted the North American and Australian operations of meatpacker JBS USA.

A Russia-linked hacking group was behind that attack, a U.S. source familiar with the matter said last week.

Asked if Russia would be prepared to find and prosecute cyber criminals, Putin said Russia’s behaviour here would depend on formal agreements being reached by Moscow and Washington.

Both sides would have to commit to the same obligations, he said.

“If we agree to extradite criminals, then of course Russia will do that, we will do that, but only if the other side, in this case the United States, agrees to the same and will extradite the criminals in question to the Russian Federation,” he said.

Some questions about your “Insurrection”

By Patrick Van Roy On June 13th, 2021 at 1:49 pm

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) has sent a letter to the U.S. Capitol Police asking how and why a key door to the Capitol that was initially locked, became unlocked, allowing hundreds of unauthorized people to enter the Capitol on January 6.

 The American people deserve an accurate and complete understanding of what happened on January 6.  To provide that historical record, it is important that all aspects of that day—from the peaceful protests on the Ellipse to the acts of violence in and around the Capitol—are fully and fairly examined.  In order to ensure the most accurate understanding of what occurred at the upper west terrace doors on January 6, I ask that you please provide the following information by no later than June 24, 2021:

1.       Do you agree with the assessment above that on January 6, 2021, starting at 2:33 p.m. at the upper west terrace doors, approximately 309 unauthorized individuals gained entry into the Capitol at this location?  If not, please provide the number of individuals that entered the building at this location.

2.       Does USCP still believe approximately 800 unauthorized individuals entered the Capitol on January 6?   If that estimate is not correct, what is the current estimate and why has it been revised?

3.       In order to fully understand what happened at the upper west terrace doorway, it is important to hear from the officers that were present at that location.  Have these officers filed detailed reports of this incident?  Has USCP conducted transcribed interviews with them?   If so, I request copies of these reports and transcribed interviews.  If not, I respectfully ask for the opportunity to interview these officers. 

4.       Does USCP know why at approximately 2:26 p.m. an individual could not open the left door at the upper west terrace entrance, but seven minutes later, at 2:33 p.m., another individual could open that same door?  Does USCP have any indication that this door was locked at 2:26 p.m. and then unlocked by 2:33 p.m.?

5.       Please produce security footage of the interior and exterior cameras located near the upper west terrace doors from 2:20 p.m. to 2:50 p.m. on January 6, 2021.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

Sincerely,

Ron Johnson

United States Senator

The noxiousness of this rebuke

By Patrick Van Roy On June 13th, 2021 at 1:43 pm

Israel isn’t the only country that’s having to cope with a US administration threatening to undermine its security.

President Joe Biden last week ordered a senior American diplomat to issue a severe formal rebuke to Britain for the way it is dealing with the European Union over Northern Ireland.

Accordingly, Yael Lempert, the acting head of the US mission to the United Kingdom, issued a diplomatic reprimand to Britain’s Brexit minister, Lord Frost, and delivered a veiled threat that America’s proposed trade deal with Britain depended upon Boris Johnson’s government acceding to Biden’s demands.

The noxiousness of this rebuke — more commonly issued to adversaries than to an ally— doesn’t just derive from America interfering in the policies of a sovereign country. It’s also because, just as with Israel, this interference is based on an ignorant and dangerously partisan view that, under the guise of advancing peace, is in fact a powerful incentive to further violence and aggression.

Lempert told Frost that Biden wanted the United Kingdom to settle its dispute with the EU even if that meant making “unpopular compromises.”

She suggested that in his robust negotiations with the EU, Frost was threatening to undermine the 1998 Northern Ireland “Good Friday” peace agreement.

GHOULS

Christian Eriksen, a Danish footballer, collapsed on the pitch this afternoon during his country’s match against Finland. He received CPR on the pitch in Copenhagen while his teammates stood in circle, facing out, to provide some privacy. I watched the rugby when I came in so so didn’t see it, but I’ve read that the BBC belatedly cut away and went back to the studio when the seriousness of the situation was realised. Yeah, a man receiving CPR is serious.

So the cameras carried on rolling, focusing on Eriksen’s face while medics were struggling to keep him alive. While this was going on Eriksen’s wife came onto the pitch, in tears and distressed. The cameras focused on her too. Apparently many countries continued with the feed.

Pro-tip to tv directors: don’t be ghouls or voyeurs. Be discrete and cut away. For anyone who would continue watching – have a think about yourself.

(The medics did great, men of the match. Eriksen is stable in hospital tonight.)

BIDENS GULAG

By Patrick Van Roy On June 12th, 2021 at 7:07 pm

This week, five Republican senators sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding his office’s handling of January 6 protesters. The letter revealed the senators are aware that several Capitol defendants charged with mostly nonviolent crimes are being held in solitary confinement conditions in a D.C. jail used exclusively to house Capitol detainees.

Joe Biden’s Justice Department routinely requests—and partisan Beltway federal judges routinely approve—pre-trial detention for Americans arrested for their involvement in the January 6 protest. This includes everyone from an 18-year-old high school senior from Georgia to a 70-year-old Virginia farmer with no criminal record.

It is important to emphasize that the accused have languished for months in prison before their trials even have begun. Judges are keeping defendants behind bars largely based on clips selectively produced by the government from a trove of video footage under protective seal and unavailable to defense lawyers and the public—and for the thoughtcrime of doubting the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election.

The rule of law for anyone involved in the events of January 6 has been flipped on its head by the U.S. justice system; defendants are presumed guilty before proven innocent. The right to a speedy trial and the right to participate in one’s own defense are ignored, as are other constitutional protections.

Prosecutors insist the alleged crimes committed by Capitol protesters—unlike similar or more egregious crimes committed by leftist protesters last year—are exceptionally heinous because the acts resulted in an “attack on our democracy” and interrupted the official business of the U.S. Congress.

There is no difference between Biden’s Justice Department than any COMMUNIST DICTOTORS…. YOU ARE GUILTY and you may not see the Evidence against you, and you will remain in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT until we feel inclined  otherwise.

This is the Biden Administration……

 

STRAIGHT INTO MY VEINS

By Pete Moore On June 12th, 2021 at 7:00 pm

I hope your day was as nice as mine. In these here parts gin-clear chalk streams trickle off the downs. They combine to become a tributary of the River Test and flow south to the English Channel. It’s here that watercress has been grown for centuries. Buy it anywhere in the UK and there’s a good chance this is where it came from. So this is where I did a 12-miler today, by way of an abandoned medieval village.

Getting out and deep into the countryside is a drug to me. The idea of being anywhere else on a hot summer’s day anathema. I genuinely crave it and look forward to it all week. Get up and out early, start walking the trails and keep walking. A long time ago I took a Texan woman I was studying with out for a day, into the countryside near here. She was astounded at all the greens. She’d never seen so much green, which I put down to her coming from browns and yellows. What we can take for granted is always worth seeing through someone else’s eyes.
