Russia following U.S. in abandoning Open Skies Treaty

No.773066 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Russia’s withdrawal from the Treaty on Open Skies, announced by the Russian Foreign Ministry Friday, was inevitable due to the lack of desire to cooperate in the United States, spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry Hua Chunying told a regular briefing Monday.

"As I understand the direct reason behind Moscow’s decision to initiate the procedure to exit the Treaty on Open Skies was the US unilateral pullout despite the international position. It significantly undermined bilateral trust between the armed forces of the two countries and transparency between the sides," she noted.

"Russia tries to preserve the treaty but did not receive any positive reaction from the US or other parties to the treaty," the diplomat underlined.

"For a long time now, the US has stuck to the Cold War mentality and the America first policy, simultaneously leaving multilateral agreements and international organizations which affects the international arms control regime and disarmament. Facts show that a bright future can be secured through dialogue and cooperation rather than unilateral policies. China is calling on the US to listen to concerns of the international community and take measures to maintain global strategic stability, peace and security in the region and beyond," the spokesperson concluded.

Poll finds majority back charging Trump for inciting Capitol riot

A Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 54 percent of Americans believe President Trump should be charged with inciting a riot for the mob that stormed the Capitol last week.

A majority of people in the poll believe Trump should be charged, and 56 percent said Trump should be removed from office and not allowed to run again.

However, there was a stark difference between Democrats and Republicans over whether Trump should be allowed to run for the White House again.

Dating apps use images to ban rioters

No.771752 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm shocked Bumble is still a thing.
>Bumble, Tinder and others are freezing out rioters with help from law enforcement - and, in some cases, their own photos. Other app users have taken matters into their own hands by striking up conversations with potential rioters and relaying their information to the FBI.

>Tinder, Bumble and other dating apps are using images captured from inside the Capitol siege and other evidence to identify and ban rioters' accounts, causing immediate consequences for those who participated as police move toward making hundreds of arrests.

>Women and men have in some cases also turned the dating apps into hunting grounds, striking up conversations with rioters, gathering potentially incriminating photos or confessions, then relaying them to the FBI. Using the dating apps to pursue members of the mob has become a viral pursuit, with tips shared on Twitter and some women changing their location on the dating apps to Washington, D.C., in hopes of ensnaring a potential suspect.

>The moves cast a spotlight on how some unlikely sources have helped expand a digital dragnet for participants in a siege with deeply online roots, fueled by viral conspiracy theories, organized on social media and live-streamed in real-time.

>They also show how people are attempting to use the same tools to fight back, including by contributing to a wide-scale manhunt for dating-app users who played a part in the violent attack.

Anti-Christ exposed. Chapter 13 Book of Revelation deciphered. Please Read

Please take the time to read. I'm not a troll and I'm not looking to gain anything with sharing this information. The past month of my life I've had what I can only describe as divine intervention. I've never been psychic and I was never very religious. I don't understand why me but I don;t think I ever will. There is nothing special about me but it is what it is. I've detailed almost all of chapter 13 from the Book of Revelation with facts to back up exactly what I've been shown to understand. Please, even if you don;t believe anything I have to say just look at the facts of what I've uncovered. Look at the message I've been chosen to bring forth and please decide for yourself what to believe. Use your own relationship to God to ask for guidance and please, please share with as many people as you can. I've been doing this all alone and I need a few good people to step up and help me get this information out there. Please help me. We have to band together right now and there is nothing I would ask of anyone other than opening your heart and mind and deciding what you want for humanity going forward.

FBI reveals DOZENS of NEO-NAZIS and WHITE SUPREMACISTS on Terror Watch List were in COUP ATTEMPT

No.771843 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
On Thursday the Washington Post reported that “dozens” of people who are currently on the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database were in Washington D.C. to participate in the January 6 coup. An unnamed source told the Post that many are suspected white supremacists who had previously been entered into the database following prior interactions with state agents or informants.

The revelation that the domestic intelligence agencies knew that neo-Nazis and fascists were going to be in D.C. further exposes the lying claims of figures such as Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy, who stated the day after the coup that “no intelligence” suggested a threat to the Capitol. There is no doubt that hundreds of people within the sprawling military-intelligence apparatus were aware of who was going to be at the rally and what their intentions were.

Another unnamed official told the Post that some of the individuals suspected of having taken part in the coup were current and former police and military members as well as “senior business executives and middle-aged business owners.”

The leaking of the investigation to the Post points to the raging conflict within the state, substantial sections of which knowingly withheld intelligence information and additional security resources in order to facilitate President Donald Trump’s attempted putsch. So far the Justice Department and the FBI have announced charges against at least 70 individuals and have identified 170 people, a fraction of the thousands who descended on the Capitol, in the hopes of overturning the election.

Coup Attempt Was Backed By Law Enforcement And Intelligence Agencies

No.763561 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
The supporters of President Donald Trump who stormed the Capitol on Wednesday to stop the ratification of President-elect Joe Biden's election victory were attempting a violent coup that multiple European security officials said appeared to have at least tacit support from aspects of the US federal agencies responsible for securing the Capitol complex.

Insider spoke with three officials on Thursday morning: a French police official responsible for public security in a key section of central Paris, and two intelligence officials from NATO countries who directly work in counterterrorism and counterintelligence operations involving the US, terrorism, and Russia.

They said the circumstantial evidence available pointed to what would be openly called a coup attempt in any other nation. None were willing to speak on the record because of the dire nature of the subject.

While they did not furnish evidence that federal agency officials facilitated the chaos, Insider is reporting this information because it illustrates the scale and seriousness of Wednesday's events: America's international military and security allies are now willing to give serious credence to the idea that Trump deliberately tried to violently overturn an election and that some federal law-enforcement agents — by omission or otherwise — facilitated the attempt.

One NATO source set the stage, using terms more commonly used to describe unrest in developing countries.

"The defeated president gives a speech to a group of supporters where he tells them he was robbed of the election, denounces his own administration's members and party as traitors, and tells his supporters to storm the building where the voting is being held," the NATO intelligence official said.

COVID-19 whistleblower arrested in Florida for speaking the truth

No.772809 ViewReplyOriginalReport

Rebekah Jones, the data scientist who helped create Florida's COVID-19 dashboard, has turned herself in to police, in response to an arrest warrant issued by the state.

Jones is charged with one count of "offenses against users of computers, computer systems, computer networks and electronic devices," the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said in a statement Monday.

Jones has said she lost her job after refusing requests to manipulate data to suggest Florida was ready to ease coronavirus restrictions. Jones says she's being punished for continuing to speak out about how Gov. Ron DeSantis is handling COVID-19, citing her arrest and a raid on her home last month.

FDLE said in its statement that "evidence retrieved from a search warrant on December 7 shows that Jones illegally accessed the system sending a message to approximately 1,750 people and downloaded confidential FDOH data and saved it to her devices."

According to Jones, Florida investigators "found no evidence" related to the incident that officials said had triggered the raid: a chat message that was sent to a planning group on an emergency alert platform, urging people to speak out publicly about Florida's coronavirus strategies. She wrote on Twitter on Saturday, "police did find documents I received/downloaded from sources in the state, or something of that nature."

The arrest warrant, obtained by NPR, alleges that Jones gained unauthorized access to state health department software on Nov. 10 and sent a mass text to employees reading, "It's time to speak up before another 17,000 people are dead. You know this is wrong. You don't have to be a part of this. Be a hero. Speak out before it's too late."
