  • The Business Deals That Could Imperil Trump (NY Times finally gives up on Russia scam?)

    Put aside Russian collusion for a moment. Press pause on possible presidential obstruction of justice. Forget Stormy Daniels. The most significant recent development involving the president may be that the special counsel, Robert Mueller, has subpoenaed Trump Organization business records as part of his inquiry into Russian interference in the presidential election. Those documents — and records recently seized by the F.B.I. from the president’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen — might answer a question raised by the president’s critics: Have certain real estate investors used Trump-branded properties to launder the proceeds of criminal activity around the world? We pored over...

    State Dept. Official Reportedly Passed On Second Trump ‘Dossier’ Written by One of Clinton’s Most Discreditable Supporters Last week, the Guardian reported the FBI is looking at a second Trump “dossier,” in addition to the one compiled by former British spook Christopher Steele at the behest of the Clinton campaign. The second dossier is allegedly compiled by Cody Shearer. “One source with knowledge of the inquiry said the fact the FBI was still working on [the ‘Shearer dossier’] suggested investigators had taken an aspect of it seriously,” notes the Guardian. “It raises the possibility that parts of the Steele dossier,...

    Nobody could have known, several years ago, that technological progress could make life so complicated in Echo Park. But along Baxter Street, everyone seems to have a story about the ineptitude of drivers — following directions from navigation apps — who can't seem to handle one of the steepest inclines in Los Angeles. "The car came through our garden, went through two fences and ended up backwards hanging over our driveway," said Jason Luther, who was describing an accident that happened during the last rains. "A lot of people can't make it up the hill," Baxter resident Robbie Adams said....

    Courts are faulting the search, but allowing the information, as case law lags behind technology Emilio Jean won his appeal, but he might as well have lost. Arizona law-enforcement officers violated Mr. JeanÂ’s privacy rights when they rigged a GPS device to a tractor-trailer he was co-piloting and tracked it for three days without a warrant, the stateÂ’s highest court ruled in January. But the Arizona court declined to throw out the illegally obtained evidence, a move that likely would have set Mr. Jean free. Instead, he is serving the rest of his 10-year prison sentence for attempting to haul...
  • The Air Force Turned Off GPS To Rehearse a War Without It

    The U.S. military is worryingly dependent on GPS. Our global positioning satellites tell planes where they are, provide targeting info for smart weapons, and support communication and navigation systems. But in a war with a tech-advanced adversary—think China, Russia, or Iran—GPS could become a big liability because it could be jammed, spoofed, or outright destroyed. So how does the U.S. Air Force train for such a scenario? Simple—just turn it off.

    A new report by the Washington Post reveals a very senior FBI official shared intelligence with dossier author and former British spy, Christopher Steele. Christopher Steele has many old contacts at the FBI from when he was a British spy. He tapped into those old contacts in mid-2016 to warn about Trump’s ‘connections to Russians’. It turns out an FBI agent revealed the name of Trump campaign volunteer, George Papadopoulos to Christopher Steele on October 1st, 2016 during a meeting in Rome, according to this report. Steele had never heard of Papadopoulos. Why is the FBI sharing intel with a...

    TEL AVIV — Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS, stated in testimony it “makes sense” to him that the FBI paid for a trip to Rome by the former British spy who was contracted by Simpson’s company to produce the largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier. Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, to do the work cited in the anti-Trump dossier. Last July, Steele reportedly traveled to Rome, where he met with an FBI contact to supply the agency with the anti-Trump dossier and other information he found during the...

    TEL AVIV — For the past three days, Sen. John McCain’s office has not responded to Breitbart News phone and email inquiries seeking clarification of the Arizona politician’s role in delivering the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration. In a New York Times oped last week, the founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped get the dossier to McCain using an “emissary,” with the goal of McCain passing the information contained in the questionable document to U.S. intelligence agencies. The disclosure raises...

    FOX News host Sean Hannity tonight invited Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, Rep. Jim Jordan and Circa News reporter Sara Carter on to discuss the latest breaking news that the intelligence community used the phony Russia dossier to spy on the Trump campaign. Sean Hannity told his audience he spoke with three separate sources who told him the phony Trump dossier was used to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on Donald Trump. The only item that was verified from the phony dossier was that Carter Page traveled to Moscow. Fusion GPS, the company behind the Hillary Clinton funded dossier,...

    LEONIA, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Leonia's drastic traffic experiment will take place later this month. As CBS2's Dave Carlin reported, the sleepy, little New Jersey town, a quarter-mile from the George Washington Bridge, is declaring 60 residential streets off-limits to drivers who use them as cut-throughs. Residents say they are sick of traffic tie-ups caused by commuters short-cutting. "They should stay on the highway," said Carlos Gomez, of Leonia. "Why bother us?" The ordinance establishes a $200 fine for short-cutters. But Leonia Mayor Judah Zeigler said it's really all about those apps. "The main reason and driver behind this legislation is...

    As The Hill‘s Mallory Shelbourne wrote Sunday, former FBI Director James Comey is back in the spotlight after one of the Bureau’s top agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails was caught sending anti-Trump text messages to a colleague. Mueller fired the agent, Peter Strzok, from the special counsel’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. “Peter Strzok, is considered one of the most experienced and trusted F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators,” claimed the New York Times. During an appearance on CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” Senator Lindsey Graham suggests Comey is under criminal investigation. The Hill reports: Article Continues Below...

    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Trump dossier testified to Congress earlier this month that he believed Russian operatives have infiltrated the National Rifle Association. Glenn Simpson, a founding partner of Fusion GPS, casually suggested in an interview with the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that the gun rights group had been breached, a source familiar with the matter told The Daily Caller. Fox News first reported about Simpson’s testimony on Tuesday night. TheDC’s source said that Simpson suggested the NRA-Russia connection in response to a line of questions from committee Democrats who asked whether any...

    The Washington Free Beacon, funded by GOP mega-donor Paul Singer was reportedly the original funder of Fusion GPS’ research project that attempted to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump — a project that would later be funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The Washington Examiner reported Friday that lawyers for the Free Beacon — a plucky conservative outlet based in the nation’s capital — funded the project from fall 2015 to spring 2016, when it pulled its funding.

    President Trump, in a wide-ranging sparring session with reporters Wednesday afternoon, blasted Hillary Clinton over new revelations her campaign helped fund a salacious anti-Trump dossier last year – calling the project a “disgrace” and claiming the tables have turned on Democrats over the “Russia hoax.” “They’re embarrassed by it, but I think it’s a disgrace,” Trump told reporters, before heading to Texas for a briefing on Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts and a Republican fundraiser. “It’s a very sad commentary on politics in this country.” In the midst of a court case that threatened to reveal the dossier’s funding, it emerged...

    LAKE MEAD (FOX5) - A section of Interstate 11 opened Wednesday between the 95 and Railroad Pass Casino. But some drivers said they are having a hard time navigating it, thanks to a glitch from GPS technology. When a 2.5 mile stretch of I-11 opened, Apple and Google maps didn't register it. Instead, it caused a major glitch, and instead of routing people down the 95 toward Boulder City and Arizona, drivers were being redirected all the way through Lake Mead National Park. The route takes more time and also comes with a $20 toll. "I pulled over with all...

    Reports of satellite navigation problems in the Black Sea suggest that Russia may be testing a new system for spoofing GPS . On 22 June, the US Maritime Administration filed a seemingly bland incident report. The master of a ship off the Russian port of Novorossiysk had discovered his GPS put him in the wrong spot – more than 32 kilometres inland, at Gelendzhik Airport. After checking the navigation equipment was working properly, the captain contacted other nearby ships. Their AIS traces – signals from the automatic identification system used to track vessels – placed them all at the same...
