"All terrorist actions are staged incidents, because acts of terror alienate the very people whose support the people blamed for the terror act need." -- Michael Rivero
Some 60,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate, a chemical used as both fertilizer and a component in explosives, went missing as it was shipped by rail from Wyoming to California last month, prompting four separate investigations.
A railcar loaded with 30 tons of the chemical left Cheyenne, Wyoming, on April 12. The car was found to be empty after it arrived two weeks later at a rail stop in the Mojave Desert, according to a short incident report from the explosives firm that made the shipment.
The company, Dyno Nobel, made the report May 10 to the federal National Response Center, or NRC. The report also appeared last week in an NRC database of California incidents managed by the state Office of Emergency Services last Wednesday.

Having taken a few months off of his senatorial duties to recover from a stroke and depression, Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman is back and, well, not necessarily better than ever. He recently appeared as spokesman for a group of Democrats encouraging Joe Biden to invoke the 14th amendment to end the debt limit crisis and not only did he stumble through his statement, he also came dressed in shorts and a hoodie looking like a wayward teenager.
According to Reuters, at the upcoming NATO summit in Vilnius this July, alliance leaders will approve thousands of pages of secret military plans that will detail how to respond to a Russian attack.
The plans will be vastly different than anything drawn up during the Cold War as NATO has expanded from 16 members to 31 since the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. The documents will also outline how NATO members should upgrade their forces and logistics.
“Allies will know exactly what forces and capabilities are needed, including where, what and how to deploy,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said of the war plans.
As Reuters writes, "The move signifies a fundamental shift - NATO had seen no need to draw up large-scale defense plans for decades, as it fought smaller wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and felt certain post-Soviet Russia no longer posed an existential threat."
... people point out to Sy Hersh and his "denigrating" of Russian Army. Let me explain something:
1. Sy Hersh may be a very good investigative journalist with zero background in military science, engineering science and Russia. He may know who blew up NS 2, but he wouldn't know the difference between shit and shinola in any serious issue related to Russia as a whole, and Russian Armed Forces in particular.
2. He denigrates himself when waxing "strategic" because he wouldn't know what strategy of Russia is both on national level and, especially, on the military one is--for that one should have a solid military-intel background. Sy Hersh has neither even if one considers, as many professionals in Russia do, that he is a conduit for important leaks from one of the power blocks within US political power structure. He certainly should stick to what he does best and that is investigate a government level mischief.

In an interview with Fox News, U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) hinted that Republicans may re-open probes into Hillary Clinton that were dropped by the FBI in 2016. The interview comes after special counsel John Durham’s report confirmed that her campaign was responsible for the launching of the bogus “Russian collusion” probe.
The Florida lawmaker told Fox that the bogus investigation into Trump’s campaign would never have gained necessary momentum without a partisan mainstream press. “The media was in on this from the beginning, in my view. They’re the ones who were willing to launder out Hillary Clinton’s phony, made-up information about Donald Trump,” Donalds said.
“So her media friends are not gonna come out now and say, ‘Oh yeah, you know what? We were wrong, and this is damning,’” he continued. “They’re just gonna laugh it off, cover it for one or two days, and then ignore it. This is really dangerous for our country.”
Later in the interview, he agreed with U.S. Reps Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on reopening the shuttered investigations into the Clinton Foundation, which were shut down shortly before the 2016 election. “I totally agree, we should definitely be looking into this,” Donalds said. “Because you have a situation here where they had some basis of information there to start those inquiries. And the report clearly shows, you have I believe it was Peter Strzok and other people high up in the FBI who came in, and in one meeting, shut it all down,” Donalds said.

Kari Lake attorney Kurt Olsen argued in his closing argument in her election challenge case Friday that at least 70,000 mail-in ballots were not properly verified in accordance with Arizona law, and therefore the election must be set aside.
The November race between Republican Kari Lake and Democratic Gov Katie Hobbs “was decided by 17,117 votes. That, however, is out of 2.59 million votes, a difference between the two candidates of 0.67 percent,” he said.
“The number of ballots at issue whether the court were to set aside for illegality, the 70,000, the 274,000 in a proportional manner … this election should be set aside,” Olsen added.
“Your Honor, the election was unlawful,” Olsen told the judge. “[Arizona statute] 16-550 was not complied with. Defendants don’t dispute our expert. They don’t dispute the evidence,” the attorney said.
A GOP lawmaker on Friday suggested that the Republican-led House jump-start new investigations into failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after special counsel John Durham’s report cited her campaign as being responsible for the phony ‘Russian collusion’ allegations against her rival, Donald Trump.
In an interview with Fox News, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) responded after co-anchor Sandra Smith noted that much of the mainstream media came out in defense of the FBI even after Durham’s report also pointed out that the bureau launched an investigation into Trump’s campaign over the collusion charges despite having no evidence to indicate they were valid.
“The media was in on this from the beginning, in my view. They’re the ones who were willing to launder out Hillary Clinton’s phony, made-up information about Donald Trump,” he said, adding it was “the same information that she used with her friends at the upper echelon of the FBI to start the ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ investigation.”
