In a recent court filing, it was revealed that Nadine Menendez, wife of Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, allegedly received a diamond engagement ring as part of a bribe intended to sway her husband's influence.
This development is part of an ongoing federal corruption investigation into Senator Menendez, who was first indicted in late September. The allegations suggest that the Senator accepted extravagant gifts in exchange for leveraging his position in the Senate to benefit Egypt.
The court filing, submitted by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, suggests that the engagement ring for Nadine Menendez was part of a $150,000 bribe intended to favor the Egyptian government. The Senator is accused of acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Egypt.
As a concerned conservative mom, the shocking events that unfolded at Lakewood Church in Houston during the Spanish-language mass on Sunday have left me deeply troubled and questioning the safety of our places of worship. The attempted mass shooting by 36-year-old Genesse Ivonne Moreno has taken a distressing turn as new details emerge about her identity, motives, and legal status.
The Scene: Lakewood Church, home to renowned evangelical pastor Joel Osteen, witnessed terror around 2 PM on Sunday when Moreno entered the church with a rifle and her 5-year-old child. Despite off-duty officers swiftly neutralizing the threat, the tragic incident resulted in one churchgoer injured and Moreno’s child caught in the crossfire, with a grim prognosis for survival.
Another Transgender Shooter: What raises additional concerns is Moreno’s identification as transgender, having previously referred to herself as ‘Jeffrey.’ This incident adds to a disconcerting trend of transgender individuals involved in mass shootings, including Dylan Butler in Iowa, Audrey Hale in Nashville, Anderson Lee Aldrich in Colorado, Alec McKinney in Colorado, and Snochia Mosley in Maryland.
Political Affiliation: Moreno’s social media posts reveal her support for Bernie Sanders, with a “Free Palestine” sticker adorning her rifle. This political alignment adds a layer of complexity to an already perplexing situation, leaving many wondering about the potential influence of political ideologies on acts of violence.
Legal Status: Unconfirmed reports suggest that Moreno may have been an illegal alien from El Salvador, arriving in 2005. If true, her extensive criminal record since entering the country, which includes assault, theft, and drug possession, raises serious questions about the effectiveness of our immigration system in identifying and addressing potential threats.
As reports surface of organized gangs of illegal migrants committing thefts in wealthy communities around Detroit, concerned citizens question Congress's priorities. County Sheriff Michael Bouchard attributes the crimes to gangs from South America adept at bypassing high-tech security systems. The issue isn't confined to Detroit, as small towns like West Whiteland, Pennsylvania, face a surge in thefts and burglaries linked to illegal migrants.
Attorney Ty Clevenger is the bulldog attorney who has been going after the DOJ and FBI for years to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich murder.
Clevenger also investigated the unknown person who turned over the DNC and Podesta emails to Wikileaks during the 2016 election cycle. This was always the key to the Trump-Russia collusion nightmare.
No proof was ever offered up by the fake news legacy media, Democrats, or the intelligence community on this scandal. If Russia did not supply the DNC emails to WikiLeaks, then this was more proof that the DOJ’s Russia collusion story was a complete lie used to fool the American public. It certainly appears that was the case.
After years of denying they had anything related to Seth Rich, the FBI and DOJ were caught lying about the evidence they were holding. In September 2023, a judge finally demanded the FBI and DOJ provide all they had regarding Seth Rich to Attorney Clevenger.
The FBI responded, requesting another 66 years before releasing the information. They wanted it moved out like the JFK assassination reports.
A few days after the mostly peaceful protest against vote fraud at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, Disney CEO Bob Iger held an all-hands meeting announcing it was time for Disney to start “taking a stand” on political issues.
When Netflix launched its ad-supported tier in November 2022, it tried to tempt viewers in with discounted rates, hoping to win new consumers and sell their eyeballs to ad-slingers. But Amazon Prime, well, it went a different route.
Amazon simply shot over an email in December 2023, giving subscribers a heads-up that it would start showing ads on Prime Video early this year, and explained going "ad-free" would cost Prime members an additional $2.99 a month (or £2.99 in the UK). But a lawsuit [PDF] filed this week claims that move was "deceptive, unfair" and contrary to "plaintiff and class members' reasonable expectations."
According to the would-be class action suit, filed by Californian Amazon Prime subscriber Wilbert Napoleon in Washington State earlier this week, he and fellow media streaming fans were asked to "pay extra to get something they already paid for" to prevent the addition of ads.
A new iOS and Android trojan named 'GoldPickaxe' employs a social engineering scheme to trick victims into scanning their faces and ID documents, which are believed to be used to generate deepfakes for unauthorized banking access.
Security updates for these four vulnerabilities were made available by Ivanti well over a month ago on January 31, 2024.
According to the researcher, the total number of internet-exposed Ivanti servers is 24,239, meaning that more than half of them remain unpatched.
Regarding CVE-2024-22024, which was disclosed and fixed on February 8, 2024, Sejiyama's research shows a global patching percentage of only 21.1% as of today, leaving 19,132 servers exposed to the dangerous unauthorized access flaw.
Unfortunately, the flaws affecting Ivanti products were disclosed over a short period, giving administrator little time to prepare for applying the patches.
This complicates remediation efforts and heightens the risk of Ivanti systems being left vulnerable for prolonged periods, providing threat actors with a large list of potential victims.
The Deep State is well at work. With the threat of funding for Ukraine stalled in the House of Representatives, the propaganda begins. Sadly it appears high ranking Republicans are working with Team Biden to scare the American people about the threat of Russia in an effort to force strong pressure to pass the Ukraine Funding Bill.
