"Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear." -- Harry S. Truman

After becoming Director of the CIA (DCI) in 1997, George Tenet did what Louis Freeh had done after his appointment as FBI Director. He began to cultivate close personal relationships with the rulers of Saudi Arabia. Like Freeh, Tenet grew especially close to Prince Bandar, the Saudi ambassador to the United States. Bandar and Tenet often met at Bandar’s home near Washington, yet Tenet did not share information from those meetings with his own officers who were handling Saudi issues at the Agency. The CIA’s Saudi specialists only learned about Tenet’s dealings with the Saudi authorities inadvertently, through their Saudi contacts. It seems that Tenet was operating within a network that surpassed the interests of the American public. Therefore the unsolved crimes of 9/11, attributed largely to young men from Saudi Arabia, should be considered in light of Tenet’s actions.

As Deputy Director for the CIA, in 1996, Tenet had worked to install one of his closest friends and confidants, John Brennan, as CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia. Brennan is now the DCI, but in his previous role, Brennan often communicated directly with Tenet, avoiding the usual chain of command. At the time, as an apparent favor to the Saudis, CIA analysts were discouraged from questioning Saudi relationship to Arab extremists.

The unusual relationship that both George Tenet and Louis Freeh had with Saudi intelligence (and George H.W. Bush) recalls the private network that was created in the mid-1970s to accomplish covert actions though means of proxies. This private network included disgruntled CIA officers who had been fired by President Carter, as well as the group known as The Safari Club and the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).

The FBI sent a SWAT team of 20 agents to the home of Hollywood actor Siaka Massaquoi in North Hollywood just before 6 AM back in June 2021.

The Chris Wray FBI felt it necessary once again to use the full force of the law to arrest a Hollywood actor in a predawn raid for walking into the US Capitol on Jan. 6.

We now know that 38% of the 800 protesters who entered the US Capitol on January 6th were waved in by Capitol Police at the West Terrace entrance.

Massaquoi is a staunch conservative and Trump supporter who left the Democrat plantation to support President Trump and conservative causes.

The White House has come under scrutiny for potential violations of the Hatch Act, a federal law designed to prevent federal employees from using their official positions to influence elections.

According to a letter shared by NBC News, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates were found to have acted “contrary” to the guidelines of the Hatch Act. This followed a warning issued to Jean-Pierre for using the term “MAGA” to negatively describe certain Republicans, which is considered a violation of the 1939 statute.

The Hatch Act, officially known as “An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities,” is a pivotal piece of United States federal legislation, enacted in 1939. Its core objective is to maintain the integrity and impartiality of the federal workforce by ensuring that federal employees conduct their duties in a nonpartisan manner.

Multiple employees reportedly warned the company's board of directors that this project, named Q* (pronounced 'Q star'), was becoming so advanced it could already pass math exams and perform critical thinking tasks.

And they felt Altman was not taking their warnings seriously.

In an interview this week, Altman did not deny the existence of the secret program that some employees said was responsible for his firing.

Instead, he called the revelation of Q* an 'unfortunate leak.'

When 1.1 million migrants arrived in Germany in 2015, Bild Zeitung launched a 'welcome' campaign, echoing the sentiments of then-Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had unilaterally opened the country's borders to Syrians fleeing civil war in their homeland.

The German people answered the call. They hung bunting on lampposts, waved balloons, offered food parcels and put up campbeds for the newcomers in sports halls, churches — and even in their own homes.

Which makes the new campaign by Germany's favourite paper, known to everyone simply as Bild, quite extraordinary.

Under the front-page headline 'Germany, we have a problem!', it has published a highly controversial 50-point manifesto telling migrants how to behave as the country experiences a national culture clash.

Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary said the bogus components came from the British supplier AOG Technics, which is not one of Ryanair’s approved suppliers.

Regulators have been alerted to fake parts found in Boeing and Airbus planes this year and investigators have allegedly traced the supplies back to AOG Technics. Aviation watchdogs in the UK, US and Europe have accused the company of supplying engine parts with faked certification documents, raising concerns over safety.

The Air Force said Friday it has decided to retire an F-35A stealth jet as it was seriously damaged by a bird strike in January 2022.

The Air Force said a comprehensive analysis with its U.S. manufacturer, Lockheed Martin, showed that the F-35A suffered damage in about 300 components, including the airframe, structure, engine and control and navigation system.

Considering the high costs and long period needed for repairs and other security concerns, the Air Force's review committee concluded that it is better to retire the aircraft than to fix it. The plan will be finalized with the defense ministry's approval.

Israel’s military has made no secret of the intensity of its bombardment of the Gaza Strip. In the early days of the offensive, the head of its air force spoke of relentless, “around the clock” airstrikes. His forces, he said, were only striking military targets, but he added: “We are not being surgical.”

There has, however, been relatively little attention paid to the methods used by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to select targets in Gaza, and to the role artificial intelligence has played in their bombing campaign.

As Israel resumes its offensive after a seven-day ceasefire, there are mounting concerns about the IDF’s targeting approach in a war against Hamas that, according to the health ministry in Hamas-run Gaza, has so far killed more than 15,000 people in the territory.

The IDF has long burnished its reputation for technical prowess and has previously made bold but unverifiable claims about harnessing new technology. After the 11-day war in Gaza in May 2021, officials said Israel had fought its “first AI war” using machine learning and advanced computing.

Former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, who had been the Democrats’ star witness at the Jan. 6 congressional hearings, made substantial revisions to her statements and the information she had supplied in transcribed interviews with the U.S. House of Representatives reaching back to February 2022.

These revisions had been kept secret from the American public.

The 15-page errata sheet, which was recently discovered by Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), contains substantial revisions to Hutchinson’s narrative of pivotal incidents surrounding the Capitol riot, Just the News reported.

These include, among other things, whether guns were present at the Washington D.C. rally preceding the riot on January 6, 2021, and her knowledge of a meeting where chants allegedly urging to “Hang Mike Pence” were allegedly uttered.

A digital signature indicating Hutchinson’s approval of the revisions was included on the errata sheet.

The GOP-controlled House on Thursday voted on a major issue involving migrants who are currently in the U.S. illegally amid a record surge following President Biden’s day-one reversals of his predecessor’s highly successful immigration and border enforcement policies.

Lawmakers passed a provision that bars the use of public land to temporarily house illegal migrants while they are applying for asylum, according to Colorado Newsline.

“The bill, H.R. 5283, passed with a majority of Republicans in support, 224–203,” the outlet reported, adding that the bill’s fate in the upper chamber is also certain, but not in a positive way for the GOP.

“It’s dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate, where Democrats hold a slim majority, and many Democrats criticized the bill as a messaging tactic for the 2024 elections, where hard-line immigration policies are the cornerstone of the GOP platform,” the outlet reported.

The inmate who stabbed former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in federal prison last week did so 22 times, with an improvised knife, according to recently filed criminal charges. He also admitted to corrections officers that he would have killed Chauvin had they not responded as quickly as they did.

The U.S. Attorney's Office identified the alleged perpetrator as 52-year-old John Turscak. He now faces charges of attempted murder, assault with intent to commit murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, and assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Chauvin was badly hurt after he was stabbed in a federal prison one week ago; the charging documents indicate the stabbing happened in the law library at the Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson, Arizona. Chauvin is currently serving his 22-year-old sentence there. The former police officer was convicted of killing George Floyd during an arrest in May 2020.

The latest push to curb Second Amendment rights comes in the form of a Democrat-led bill that seeks to impose a sweeping firearms ban with exceptions that gun rights groups say are so fuzzy that the prohibition could prohibit nearly all semi-automatic handguns.

The bill, dubbed the Gas-Operated Semi-Automatic Firearms Exclusion Act (GOSAFE) that a gun rights group panned as "perhaps the most sweeping gun prohibition bill of the 21st Century," was introduced on Nov. 29 by a number of Democrat senators, along with an Independent—with no Republicans joining.

Generally, the key idea of the bill is to ban firearms that can be fired quickly (along with accessories that increase firing speed) and have the ability to accept magazines with a capacity of 10 rounds or more, all in a bid to limit "a firearm's ability to inflict maximum harm in a short amount of time."

Europe may be experiencing its most significant real estate meltdown since the global financial crisis. The abrupt ending of easy monetary policies and soaring interest rates have led the property and retail conglomerate Signa Holding GmbH to declare bankruptcy following its inability to secure funding. 

Bloomberg reports that Signa, also the co-owner of New York's Chrysler building, has assets upwards of $25 billion as of the end of 2022. It filed for insolvency in Vienna on Wednesday. 

"Despite considerable efforts in recent weeks, the necessary liquidity for an out-of-court restructuring could not be sufficiently secured," the company said.

Signa's current debt load totaled around $5.5 billion, according to creditor representative KSV1870. There are over 273 creditors impacted by the proceedings.

In July, The Gateway Pundit and Cowboy Logic offered proof that the DOJ edited video to incriminate the Oath Keepers during their trial.

Today we offer evidence that the DOJ’s star witness in the Oath Keepers trial, Special Agent David Lazarus. lied under oath and was not present during an alleged confrontation as he testified in court. He was in a different location.

In July 2023, Donna Fiducia and Don Neuen co-hosts of Cowboy Logic on Real America’s Voice, released evidence that the Biden DOJ edited footage from January 6 in order to convict innocent January 6 protesters and Oath Keepers members.

This is a very serious charge and Don and Donna provided all of the evidence on their show.

Don sent The Gateway Pundit this synopsis: During the Oath Keeper trials (all three trials), the issue of guarding Capitol Police Office Harry Dunn was a critical point.

Senator Dick Durbin’s push to shut down Senator Marsha Blackburn’s investigation into Epstein’s flight logs comes after a long series of actions covering for the billionaire pedophile.

Which makes many wonder why Durbin is working so hard to protect Jeffrey Epstein.

“Democrat senator Dick Durbin of Illinois adjourned a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing before holding a vote on whether or not to approve Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee’s subpoena for the Jeffrey Epstein flight logs,” the National File reported.

“It turns out that Dick Durbin personally tried to shut down the Jeffrey Epstein disclosure movement by disparaging those who believe in a ‘grand conspiracy’ surrounding accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epsteins’ death. Durbin is a close ally of former President Bill Clinton, who palled around with Epstein and flew on Epstein’s private jet,” the news outlet charged.

“This is MAGA Country!” hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett is likely headed back to jail after he lost his appeal in court.

Smollett will have to finish his 150-day jail sentence. He has only served 6 days in jail.

The New York Post reported:

An appeals court on Friday upheld the disorderly conduct convictions of actor Jussie Smollett, who was accused of staging a racist, homophobic attack against himself in 2019 and then lying about it to Chicago police.

Smollett, who appeared in the TV show “Empire,” challenged the role of a special prosecutor, jury selection, evidence and many other aspects of the case. But all were turned aside in a 2-1 opinion from the Illinois Appellate Court.

Smollett had reported to police that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack by two men wearing ski masks. The manhunt for the attackers soon turned into an investigation of Smollett himself, leading to his arrest on charges he had orchestrated the attack.

In a move that has prompted many to wonder which is the bigger banana republic, Venezuela or the US, Joe Biden's new BFF, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro (who has promised to export a few barrels of oil to the US president - now that draining the SPR is no longer an option - to keep gas prices low ahead of the 2024 presidential election in exchange for sanction relaxation and defacto recognition by the White House that Maduro is the dictatorially "democratically" elected president of Venezuela, making a mockery of a decade of Western virtue-signaling sanctions), on Sunday Caracas is set to hold a referendum among Venezuelans on annexing (i.e., invading and taking over) a whopping 160,000 sq km of extremely oil-rich land in neighbouring Guyana.

If you haven’t updated your iPhone, iPad or Mac recently, you’re going to want to install the latest patches now as Apple has released emergency security updates to address two new zero-day vulnerabilities.

As reported by BleepingComputer, these new zero-days have already been exploited by hackers in their attacks. However, Cupertino hasn’t provided further details on how hackers are using them nor has it revealed which Apple users are currently being targeted.

Both of these zero-days (tracked as CVE-2023-42916 and CVE-2023-42917) were discovered in Apple’s WebKit browser engine which powers Safari and is also used in many of the company’s apps for iOS, iPadOS and macOS.

If exploited, these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to gain access to sensitive information stored on Apple devices through an out-of-bounds read weakness or to execute arbitrary code by using malicious webpages to take advantage of a memory corruption bug.
