    The Times of Israel is reporting that a new computer virus 'more powerful' than the Stuxnet worm that devastated the Iranian nuclear weapons program in 2010 has been unleashed on Iran's "infrastructure and strategic systems." While the extent of the damage is unknown, the new virus has been described as “more violent, more advanced and more sophisticated" than Stuxnet. That virus, jointly developed by US and Israel, is believed to have set back the Iranian nuclear weapons programs by several months to several years depending on the source. The report came hours after Israel said its Mossad intelligence agency had...

    The New York Police Department is removing nearly 3,000 body cameras from use after one of the devices worn by a Staten Island officer exploded into flames, police officials said on Sunday. The recall of the Vievu-brand LE-5 cameras could delay the departments plan to outfit all 23,000 patrol officers with body cameras by December, and adds another twist to the complicated history surrounding the mechanisms... The police said other camera models, including the LE-4, are not affected by the order.

    <p>This week, a new series of Project Veritas undercover videos was released. The videos show federal employees boasting that they are engaging in efforts to overthrow capitalism from within.</p> <p>In one of the videos, Stuart Karaffa, a Management and Program Analyst with the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations within the Department of State, told the Veritas investigative reporter our goal is to resist everything, to F*ck sh*t up at every level. Karaffa bragged, I spend most of my workday on Democratic Socialist activity. I compose all my emails during the day, but I carefully wait until after 5:30 pm to send them. That way I can argue that my political activity is done on my own time. Maybe Ill get caught, but its impossible to fire federal employees.</p>

    Google is in the spotlight after internal emails show conversations between employees highlighting a desire to manipulate search results on the heels of President Trumps controversial travel ban in order to mute conservative viewpoints and push ways to combat the ban. Like many Silicon Valley titans, Google has drawn the ire of conservatives who feel right-leaning views are condemned from within. But internal company emails made public by Fox News Tucker Carlson Tonight on Thursday appear to show employees wanted to curate Google's algorithm to boost left-leaning political views on immigration. The emails were written on Jan. 29, 2017...

    Late last week, the astronauts aboard the International Space Station woke up to some distressing news: There was a leak somewhere on the station, and air was escaping into space. After an extensive search, the leak was finally found and plugged with tape and gauze, and the air pressure inside the station has been stabilized. But now that the crisis has passed, theres a new concern for the astronauts and the space agencies that manage the station. How exactly did that hole get there in the first place? At first, the theory was that a stray micrometeorite collided with the...

    The Republican chairman of a congressional panel investigating a 3-million-gallon spill of toxic wastewater from an inactive Colorado gold mine said Tuesday the mine was purposely breached by a government cleanup team. The assertion by House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop of Utah contradicts claims by the Obama administration that the cleanup team was doing only preparatory work at the Gold King mine. Once it was breached, wastewater loaded with lead, arsenic and other contaminants fouled downstream rivers in Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. Bishop cited an email in which an Interior Department official said the spill last August...

    One of the most obvious reasons for the failure of Hillary Clinton to win the presidency in 2016 stems from the former Secretary of States longstanding reputation as one of the most corrupt and crooked politicians of our modern era. Clinton, who rose to power at her husbands side, has long been on the shadowy, clandestine side of American political theater, having founded The Clinton Foundation as a charitable organization through which the former First Lady could funnel illicit funds and wield power from behind the virtue signaling shield of philanthropy. Of course, it only took a few decades for...

    The term deep state has been so over-used in the past few years that it may seem meaningless. It has become standard practice to label ones political adversaries as representing the deep state as a way of avoiding the defense of ones positions. President Trump has often blamed the deep state for his political troubles. Trump supporters have created big conspiracies involving the deep state to explain why the president places neocons in key positions or fails to fulfill his campaign promises. But the deep state is no vast and secret conspiracy theory. The deep state is real, it operates...

    Washington, D.C. - Michael Maloof was back in the game. He and another Pentagon aide, David Wurmser, drove the short distance from the Pentagon to CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. It was early October, a good season in Washington, but Maloofs nerves were on edge during the scenic ride along the tree-lined George Washington Parkway. snip Maloof was a legend within the Pentagon circle that tracked arms proliferation. His office was obscure, but it performed a crucial national security function. snip The Pentagon wanted years of intelligence reporting on al Qaeda, Iraq, Iran and other potential targets in the war...

    One of the three F-15K aircraft delivered by U.S. aerospace company Boeing to the South Korean Air Force (ROKAF) in September had severe defects allegedly due to the poor quality of work at a St. Louis manufacturing facility, industry sources said Thursday. On Sept. 9, Boeing delivered three of the second batch of 21 F-15Ks ordered under a 2008 contract, following the delivery of 40 F-15Ks under a previous deal in 2002. But one of the newly arrived aircraft had an engine damaged by foreign objects, and fuel transfer and avionics glitches, the sources said, citing testimony of Korean technicians...
