[PJ] Federal employee Henry Kyle Frese was arrested today for allegedly leaking national security secrets to reporters at CNBC and NBC. One of the reporters was his girlfriend. Read the indictment here.
Frese was a federal employee at the Defense Intelligence Agency. It comes as no surprise that Frese ‐ like so many other federal employees in Washington, D.C. ‐ is full of hatred toward Donald Trump and willing to use his personal power and government job to attack the president and conservatives. Let's peruse his Twitter feed before it disappears.
Frese went to college and graduate school in Canada. His posts routinely cover national security and foreign affairs issues. They are also vehemently hostile to Donald Trump and his foreign policy. A post just this week regarding Turkey and Syria says, "Once again we remind our current, and any potential future allies, that at some point we will [expletive] them over." I could find no postings on his Twitter feed regarding the Obama administration meddling in Israel's elections or striking up a nuclear deal with Iran.
Frese didn't just hate Trump, he hated those around Trump, including Sebastian Gorka. Upon reading that Gorka would be traveling with Trump, Frese attacked Gorka by posting an imaginary quote from a White House official: "You know what would be good optics right now? SecState travelling with someone who was disgraced from the White House and has clear ties to European white nationalist groups." Gorka does not have ties to European white nationalist groups.
Frese traveled quite a bit. Every month or two, he could be found hiking Kilimanjaro or sipping beer in an Eastern European capital, visiting London or the low countries, Morocco, Berlin, Australia, all in the space of a year or two. It was quite a travel experience for a lowly federal employee. Perhaps it was work-related, all those different destinations. Excessive foreign travel can be a marker for a national security risk.
My only surprise is that this guy didn't show up as a phony Whistleblower on Adam Schiff's House committee to impeach Trump. I guess he stepped on his own pecker first before he could do this. Timing is everything.
[NYPOST] Four men were killed inside an after-hours club in Brooklyn early Saturday when a gambler opened fire, sparking a wild shootout, police and sources said. "Go fer yer guns, Buck!"
The chaos unfolded just before 7 a.m. at an after-hours club called Triple A Aces on Utica Avenue in Crown Heights, cops said. "Call."
Around 30 people ‐ including several strippers ‐ "Bring dem boobies over here and bring me luck, baby!"
were inside the small club, gambling with cards and playing the dice game cee-lo, when one of the players pulled out a gun in an attempt to rob his fellow gamblers, sources said. "I think that there pot is mine!"
It was unclear whether the shooter ‐ who had been gambling for about an hour before the fatal shootout ‐ was upset over losing money or had come to the club to steal cash, sources said. "One or the other."
"That's right, Bart!"
As shootout began, another reveler pulled out their own weapon, shooting and killing the would-be robber, according to sources. [BANG!]
"Aaaiiieee! Y'got me, Bart!"
The scene was "mayhem" as the bullets flew and panicked party-goers fled through different entrances of the club, a high-ranking law enforcement source told the Post. "Yep. That's right. It wuz bullets and boobies, all over the place!"
"People were trying to get out," the source added. "Nobody wanted to stay!"
In all, four men were pronounced dead at the scene and five others were hurt, including several who were hit by gunfire, officials said. "I wuz hit by a booby. Hurt like the dickens, it did."
Medics rushed three of the injured to Brookdale University Medical Center and two to Kings County Hospital, officials said. "Doctor Quincy to the white courtesy phone!"
One victim sustained a leg injury while fleeing the chaos, police said. "Hey! Look out!"
"Ow! My leg!"
The maimed ‐ two of whom lived out of state ‐ Dat'd be Noo Joisey...
range in age from 32 to 49 years old, police said. "They ain't kids. They just thought they wuz."
At least 15 rounds were fired, Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at a news briefing outside the club, where he praised responding officers. Fifteen rounds, four dead, five wounded, at close quarters.
Two guns, a 9mm and a revolver, were found at the scene‐though Shea said there may be more. If it's a revolver they call it a .357 or a .38...
But landlord Samuel Revells, who owns the building, claims he knew nothing of the club’s after-hours operations. "I know nothing! No-thing! Tell them, Hogan!"
"I thought they were having birthday parties, things for funerals in there," he claimed. "In the two years since I leased it to them, we haven’t had any problems, no police."
[AFRICANEWS] Four Malawian protesters have been charged with the murder of a policeman who was stoned to death during festivities between pro- and anti-government demonstrators outside the capital Lilongwe, police said Saturday.
A wave of protests has gripped Malawi since disputed elections in May, and Superintendent Usumani Imedi was killed on Tuesday trying to restore order as violence erupted like lava from a volcano at Msundwe, a trading outpost west of the capital.
The festivities broke out as a group of protesters attempted to stop supporters of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party from travelling to President Peter Mutharika’s first rally in the city since his election win.
IT SHOULDN'T BE HAPPENING IN A DEMOCRACY WHERE TOLERANCE AND DISSENTING VIEWS ARE THE BENCHMARK.
Police front man James Kadadzera told AFP that four anti-government protesters were charged with murder on Friday: Frank Mastone, 28, Kondwani Chisindo, 23, Godfrey Banda, 30, and Licktone Mtiche, 30.
The police also arrested 40 others following Imedi’s death and charged them with endangering the lives of road users.
All the suspects, except one juvenile, appeared before a magistrate in Lilongwe on Friday.
[PRESSTV] Ecuador President Lenin Moreno orders the capital Quito and surrounding areas to be placed under curfew and military control, on the 11th day of deadly protests against government austerity measures.
[PRESSTV] North Korea ...hereditary Communist monarchy distinguished by its truculence and periodic acts of violence. Distinguishing features include Songun (Army First) policy, which involves feeding the army before anyone but the Dear Leadership, and Juche, which is Kim Jong Il's personal interpretation of Marxism-Leninism, which he told everybody was brilliant. In 1950 the industrialized North invaded agrarian South Korea. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force opposing the invasion, with the United States providing around 90% of the military personnel. Seventy years later the economic results are in and it doesn't look good for Juche... has demanded Tokyo pay compensation for a fishing boat that sank earlier this week in an incident which Pyongyang described as a deliberate and "gangster act" in the Sea of Japan.
The North’s foreign ministry "strongly demanded" that Tokyo pay compensation for the vessel that went down in the sea on Monday, after colliding with a Japanese patrol boat that was chasing it out of the waters.
"We strongly demand that the Japanese government compensate for the infliction of the material damage by sinking our vessel," the unnamed front man was quoted by the official Central Korean News Agency (CKNA) as saying on Saturday.
It also called the collision as deliberate and "a gangster act" by Japan.
"If such an incident occurs again, Japan will face an undesirable consequence," it added.
Satoshi Kuwahara, a Japanese fisheries agency official, said on Monday that the Japanese patrol boat was warning the North Korea vessel to leave the area, which falls under Japan's exclusive economic zone.
When foreign vessels illegally operate in Japan's waters, Japanese patrol boats often send an audio message, display a warning sign on an electric bulletin board, or spray water at them, Kuwahara said.

[PRESSTV] South Korea has announced a plan to purchase 20 additional F-35 fighter jets from the United States, in a move that is likely to infuriate North Korea ...hereditary Communist monarchy distinguished by its truculence and periodic acts of violence. Distinguishing features include Songun (Army First) policy, which involves feeding the army before anyone but the Dear Leadership, and Juche, which is Kim Jong Il's personal interpretation of Marxism-Leninism, which he told everybody was brilliant. In 1950 the industrialized North invaded agrarian South Korea. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force opposing the invasion, with the United States providing around 90% of the military personnel. Seventy years later the economic results are in and it doesn't look good for Juche... which has already warned Seoul against the deployment of the jets in the region.
The South’s arms procurement agency announced on Friday that it will begin the second phase of its plan to acquire stealthy fighter jets "in 2021 for the five years to come."
Some $3.3 billion will go toward buying the additional Lockheed Martin-made aircraft, said the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA).
Seoul has already ordered 40 F-35 under a 2014 deal worth about $6.4 billion.
The first delivery of the fighters started earlier this year. It has so far received 8 jets, while a total of 26 more planes will be delivered by the end of next year, according to the South Korean air force.
Earlier this month, the military displayed some of its newly acquired jets for the first time.
The move came despite North Korea’s call in July on South Korean authorities "to come to their senses before it is too late" and stop purchasing the aircraft.
Pyongyang warned then that it would begin developing "special armaments" capable of destroying the fifth generation aircraft if South Korea did not cease its deployment of the jets in the region.
It described the purchase and testing of the aircraft as an "extremely dangerous action which will trigger our reaction."
[DAWN] Two daughters of a labourer were kidnapped and allegedly gang-raped by a group of men in Punjab's Kabirwala tehsil, police said on Friday.
According to a First Information Report (FIR) of the incident, the two sisters were asleep in their room when five men entered their house located in Koraibaloch area and kidnapped them on gunpoint at 2am on October 10.
The suspects took the two women, who are in their 20s, to a mango orchard and subjected them to gang rape, according to their brother, on whose complaint the FIR was registered.
The family then sought the help of a panchayat (village council) to seek the release of their daughters by the men whom they suspected to have kidnapped the women.
Later on Thursday, the five suspects dropped the two women near their house. The sisters were naked when they were released, their brother told DawnNewsTV.
After the incident was reported by the victims' father at Kabirwala Saddar cop shoppe, Khanewal District Police Officer Umar Saeed Malik formed teams to apprehend the suspects.
A medical examination conducted at Tehsil Headquarters (THQ) Hospital Kabirwala confirmed that the two women had been raped, DPO Malik said.
He said one primary suspect in the case was arrested and raids are being conducted at various locations to nab the other four men. The arrested suspect confessed to his crimes, the DPO said.
[TheTruthAboutGuns] Roh’s case was heard in a bench trial (at his option) in which only the judge hears the evidence and renders a verdict. US District Court Judge James V. Selna deliberated for a year and then wrote a tentative order in April.
In his order, Selna agreed with Roh’s argument that the ATF’s definition of an AR-15 lower as a firearm is faulty.
That, no doubt, set off alarm bells from LA to DC. If the ruling were allowed to stand, that would set a very inconvenient precedent, one that would make AR-15 lowers like any other part of an AR platform rifle...just another gun part that could be made and sold through the mail to just about anyone. No serial number or background check needed.
[FoxNews] A Northern California man dependent on an oxygen supply died Wednesday, shortly after power cuts by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. affected his home, fire officials said Friday.
Robert Mardis, 67, died roughly 12 minutes after PG&E cut power to his home and the surrounding area. An autopsy report concluded the man died of severe coronary artery atherosclerosis, according to the Sacramento Bee.
Fire personnel responded to a call around 3:40 a.m. and found Mardis unresponsive on the floor of his home, according to El Dorado County Interim Fire Chief Lloyd Ogan. He was found wearing a nasal cannula, used to deliver oxygen to the nose, and was hooked up to a PPAP machine for that purpose. Mardis' family told Fox 40 he couldn’t reach his battery-powered tank in time. The new Gods must have their sacrifices
Backup O2 supply for mobility or for emergency's always present. So he was alone. No caregiver. He obviously had a heart attack. The cheap route are these oxygen concentrators. Because of insurances or self pay you are tied to a 50 foot line. This was sloppy. PG&E should have been contacted. Arrangements could have been made. Power generator, H tank and so on. Who is at fault if the molecular sieve material has degraded (O2 concentration drops below prescribed prescription).
[BREITBART] Using puberty-blocking drugs on pre-pubescent children in order to stultify their sexual development “is a crime against humanity,” said Camille Paglia, professor of humanities and media studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She offered her remarks on Tuesday’s edition of Dennis Prager’s eponymous radio show while discussing her latest book, Provocations: Collected Essays on Art, Feminism, Politics, Sex, and Education.
Paglia highlighted left-wing denial of the biological origins of sex, including left-wing framing of sex as an arbitrary and subjective social construct. “These ideas aren’t based on any actual study of biology,” she said.
Paglia noted much of the news media’s ambivalence towards the aforementioned experimentation on children:
I think that experiments of unproven drugs — drug protocols — on children is a crime against humanity, and it should not be tolerated. It amazes me there is hardly any media attention to this matter. I think the future will look back with surprise and shock at the ethical indifference of the major media right now in the United States to this going on. It is simply not right. These drugs have not been fully tested, and we’re using children as experiments? Boys forever are going to have, in adulthood, a child’s size penis? I cannot believe that this is happening without protest.
“Don’t imagine that the child knows his or her future identity at age three, or ten, for that matter,” added Paglia. “Flash-freezing a child’s development through the introduction of drugs — pre-puberty, on and so on — seems to me, should be recognizably, not just wrong, but horrific.”
