inauguration

As expected the radical alt-left protested in front of the Trump Hotel in DC and in front of the National Press Club where the Deploraball was being held.

Much like we’ve seen in almost all of the major protests by the left, this one got violent too.

Police had to step in and use peppers spray on many the protestors, as they grew more and more confrontational with the police and a few Trump supporters in the area.

The crowd was large but there are conflicting reports as to the size. Some reports are saying the size was roughly 400 people while a few other reports have the numbers closer to 1000.

DC police are ready for the weekend.

The Riot squad guarded the entrances to the buildings and was forced to push the crowd back the mob try to fight their way past.

We have seen this time and time again during the “peaceful” protests that the left attempts to hold. If the protestors are against Donald Trump, why are they fighting with the police?

Thursday night was the first night before a long weekend. Although there are a lot of protests planned for Friday during the inauguration, the real protest is expected on Saturday.

Some are reporting that as many as 200,000 women may show up on Saturday to march in the Women’s March on Washington.

A group called Millennials March wants a million millennials to march on Saturday, but since they are millennials, it doesn’t look like a million will show up.

There are a number of real threats that the FBI and DC police are going to have to worry about, but the protesters are the wild card. If they can protest in peace, then they will be able to make a point to the Trump administration.

If we see more of what we saw on Thursday night, then the protests will only serve as a way for Trump to stand firmly against whatever the protesters are complaining about.

Do you think that things will get ugly this weekend or do you think the progressive protesters will be able to stay in control?

Nukes

South Korean news agencies are reporting that North Korea is loading long-range nukes to be ready by the Inauguration.

The South Korean Joint Chief of Staff said in a statement on Thursday that the reports of missiles could not be confirmed operational, but that they were monitoring things closely.

South Korean reports say that two missiles are already loaded on temporary firing platforms.

According to the South Korean reports, an unnamed source said that the missiles are being prepped in order to send a “strategic message” to Donald Trump.

While the reports are not completely verified, they are specific about the types of missiles. The devices have been reported as being no more than “15 meters” which would be smaller than their current ICBMs.

This isn’t the first time North Korea has put on a display prior to a new administration taking over. They have been known to test nukes or attempt a missile launch, but this is the first time they have loaded nukes on long-range missiles.

U.S. military has plans to launch a new satellite on Friday and will stream the launch live. The new high-tech satellite will allow the Air Force to monitor missile launches around the globe.

Threats come often from the North Korean government, and they normally amount to nothing more than words.

Do you think that North Korea will actually fire a missile towards the US during the Inauguration?

Porky Politicians get a taste of the Trump Diet

In March of last year, the Heritage Foundation released their recommendation for a 2017 federal budget in a document titled, “Blueprint for Balance.”

According to numerous reports, President-Elect Trump plans to use the blueprint for his incoming administration and push Congress to pass the plans that include a $1.3 trillion tax break.

The Left is up in arms about the plan as it cuts programs preferential to minorities, women and the arts.

But the plan doesn’t just target the pet projects of Democrats, it cuts spending for non-combat research within the Department of Defense as well as subsidies to military commissaries.

The word “eliminate” occurs 230 times in the 180 page document.

As a reference, “reduce” occurs only 107 times.

The plan is an ambitious attempt to curb government spending and reduce its size and as such, is likely to face significant resistance in Congress.

A similar plan was proposed in 2015 and lost the House vote by a significant margin.

President Elect Trump will have to brow-beat pork-barrel politicians to give up their special projects and ear marks if he wants to abide by the spirit of the blueprint and make progress towards creating a smaller government.

A quick search of Washington D.C.’s Craigslist shows a strong availability of Inauguration Tickets . . . if you’re willing fork over $350 or more per ticket.

The tickets, which are not supposed to be sold, are being given away for free, if you purchase a more expensive item such as a $400 map.

The sales scheme is similar to the sale of Marijuana in the District. While selling marijuana is still illegal in D.C., if may be given away with no legal consequences. So if you purchase a $200 t-shirt, it will come with a bag of pot.

How did these Craigslist dwellers get the tickets?

For free from their members of Congress.

Since the election, any American could contact their Congressional representative and request tickets and they are provided at no cost and based upon availability.

These folks got out early and snagged armfuls of invites only to do exactly what they are not supposed to do, and turn around and profit off of them.

Capitalism in the works.

While the tickets are pricey, they are available to anyone who needs a last minute pass, which is a convenient, free-market alternative for procrastinators.

Jimmy Kimmel put people on the street to the test to see if they preferred Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act.

With the Senate taking the first steps to repeal the ACA, it was an interesting test to see how brain dead most people are.

In one of his last-minute, rushed acts, President Obama commuted the sentence of traitor, criminal and general nutcase, Bradley Manning.

And no, I won’t give this freak the courtesy of calling him “Chelsea” – he’s a dude and makes and an even uglier woman.

My personal disdain for Manning came after researching a story about his acts a few years ago.

Nothing has changed aside from the tempo of his shrills from behind federal bars in Quantico, Virginia

And Barack Obama fell for it.

Just to recap, Bradley Manning was an Army intelligence analyst as an enlisted soldier.

He was openly gay but also clearly mentally unstable. Before his deployment to Iraq in 2009, his commanders questioned his mental state and ability to deploy, but did so anyway due to a shortage of manpower.

As troops were deployed and fighting the enemy, Manning released three-quarters of a million documents containing sensitive and secret information to the world via WikiLeaks.

Why did he do this? Likely because he had a crush on Julian Assange and believed “she could be herself” in his chats online with someone assumed to be Assange.

For a comparison, Edward Snowden leaked evidence of the government committing crimes and spying on its own people. Snowden attempted to follow whistleblower procedures but was ignored.

Manning, betrayed the nation as a “brief respite from isolation and anxiety.”

He literally had no reason to release those documents other than that it gave him personal pleasure.

No joke.

But to show the true, demented personality of Manning, my mind always goes back to an incident he initiated as an Army solider.

Before his arrest, Manning assaulted a woman, Specialist Showman.

The incident was witness by an Army Captain who walked in to see Manning pinned to the ground by Showman, who had been attacked and hit by Manning.

For whatever reason, Manning decided it was cool to hit a woman (soldier or not) and then, his puny butt was pinned to the ground by the girl he attacked.

Manning’s defense attorneys used that incident to blame the Army, saying that if the military had discharged him at that time of “emotional instability” the treason would not have occurred.

Really?

Now that it’s more than established that Manning is a dangerous nut that belongs behind bars, the question remains, why would Obama pardon the man?

Who knows, maybe Obama has a crush on little Chelsea and her blonde locks.

We’ll never know, but hopefully a President Trump or Attorney General Sessions can find a way to keep Manning behind bars.

The FBI has confirmed what Judicial Watch reported last week, that the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter has ties to radical Islam and carried out the attack on behalf of a terrorist group. During a bond hearing in a south Florida federal court this week, an FBI special agent testified that the shooter, Esteban Santiago, communicated with Islamic terrorists in “jihadi chat rooms” and committed the massacre on behalf of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Santiago killed five people and wounded six others during the bloody rampage in the baggage claim area of the Ft. Lauderdale Airport earlier this month. Authorities immediately attributed the attack to mental illness, saying that Santiago was a Hispanic Army veteran that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Santiago has been charged with an act of violence at an international airport, which could get him a death sentence. According to the federal complaint, Santiago fired 10 to 15 rounds of ammunition from his firearm, aiming at his victims’ heads and walking while shooting in a methodical manner. At this week’s bond hearing, FBI special agent Michael Ferlazzo testified that Santiago said he was fighting for ISIS and had been in touch with other terrorists who were planning attacks in jihadi internet chat rooms. The judge ruled that Santiago be held without bond and his next court appearance is scheduled for January 30.

Last week Judicial Watch ignited a ruckus after revealing that Santiago is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad), downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online. The Obama administration’s efforts to keep the pertinent information quiet in the aftermath of the shooting brought up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya. In the Ft. Lauderdale attack the traditional mainstream media coverage promoted the government rhetoric that omitted any ties to terrorism even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf.

Records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Santiago (Hammad) is a radical Islamic terrorist that’s seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith (“there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger”) known as the Shahada. He also posted a thread about downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists on a weapons and explosives forum. The investigative news site that unearthed this disturbing information connected the dots between Santiago, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Hammad, an identity he created in 2007.

It’s still not clear why Santiago chose Ft. Lauderdale, out of all the nation’s airports, to carry out his attack. The facility is situated in Broward County, which has a large and growing Islamic community and questions remain involving who Santiago knows in the area. In 2015 Judicial Watch obtained records from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) that show an Al Qaeda terrorist who helped plan several U.S. attacks lived in Broward County and graduated from the local community college with a degree in computer engineering. His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, but he also has a Hispanic identity, Javier Robles, and for years he appeared on the FBI’s most wanted list. Back in 2012 Judicial Watch reported on a terrorist front group’s demands that Broward County public schools close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days, illustrating the influence that Muslims have in the region.

A generation ago, as Americans began logging onto the earliest versions of the internet, McAfee antivirus alerts were as ubiquitous as the sound of dial-up modems. For years, McAfee antivirus software was the standard in protection from spyware, Trojan horses, and other traps that allowed hackers access to your personal computer. Notwithstanding the recent controversy surrounding some of the activities associated with John McAfee — the 71-year-old software security pioneer — there is no denying he understands the benefits and pitfalls of government cybersecurity as well as anyone.

And he’s not optimistic about what the future holds if things do not change — immediately.

Since at least the Clinton Administration — notable for perhaps the first public cybersecurity battle over its plan to use a “Clipper chip” designed to break-through data encryption, and giving government snoops access to private phone conversations — the centerpiece of federal “cybersecurity” plans has been amassing an arsenal of hardware and software designed for mass surveillance, data collection and sharing, and streamlined analyses. Ostensibly, this weaponry has been intended to be used against terrorists and foreign enemies.

However, the 9-11 terror attacks completely flipped the script. Under President George W. Bush, these weapons became increasingly pointed inwards towards digital communications made within the United States, including those of U.S. citizens. This strategy was then refined – and accelerated — under President Barack Obama.

But while building weapons of offense, those in charge of America’s national cybersecurity eschewed formulating a comprehensive strategy for defense. This, as McAfee notes, was due to the government confusing “cyberwarfare” with “cybersecurity.”

“Our government defines cybersecurity by and large — especially the FBI, Department of Justice — as using cyber technology to make sure that American citizens toe the line, that there are no terrorist activities, and that we’re all monitored and controlled,” McAfee told Larry King in an interview last month.

The consequences of this singular mindset have not been pretty. Beyond scores of cyberattacks in recent years against private entities such as Sony (2014) and Dyn (2016) – the latter of which crippled internet access on the East Coast – government agencies have been frequently targeted as well, and with great success. These targets also include agencies tasked with the very responsibility of cybersecurity; the most embarrassing being an attack carried out against the FBI and CIA by a 15-year-old, resulting in the leaking of highly sensitive information on tens of thousands of FBI and DHS employees.

Consequently, McAfee asks, “is this the agency you want running America’s cybersecurity?”

To be sure, America’s spy agencies should be – indeed, must be –equipped with the tools to adapt and meet the rapidly evolving and ubiquitous security challenges in the digital age. However, amassing these tools cannot be its only focus as it has been in recent years; nor should such tools be used to blindly harvest and database the private communications of citizens accused or suspected of no crimes, as Trump’s pick for CIA director apparently desires. Not only are there serious constitutional questions surrounding these practices, but given the reluctance of all branches of government to adhere to virtually any meaningful privacy safeguards or use-protocols for such data, it is hard to trust these agencies with such sensitive data given their inability to protect even their own classified data from theft.

This highlights another pressing need – the development of effective defensive practices against cyber-attacks. While it is impossible to create a completely impenetrable firewall against hackers, the government’s demand for so-called “backdoors” into security systems and encryption “keys” exponentially weaken security measures in development. Rather than working to undermine data security, the government should be working directly with the private sector to boost these advancements; which would not only better protect private companies from attack, but also the government itself.

A good start for this is hiring security experts from the private sector, and even non-profit organizations aligned around exposing security flaws in the name of cybersecurity, to help spearhead the development of better cybersecurity protections; as opposed to the current plan of tasking law enforcement officials with the responsibility.

To make a “reboot” of the government’s cybersecurity strategy successful, it will require two major buy-ins from the new Trump Administration; neither of which appears imminent at first blush. The first is to finally recognize a problem exists with the way government is currently approaching cybersecurity. The second is a willingness to make a fundamental change to a culture of cyber-warfare, and instead focus on one of true cybersecurity – even if it comes at the expense of government’s grip over control of private communications.

McAfee is among many who actually understand the seriousness of this issue, but are not holding their breath waiting for this institutional change; nevertheless, he cares enough to raise the alarm. And we would do well to listen.

U.S. Park Police and D.C. Metro Police seized a weapons cache near the C&O Canal last week.

They were alerted to the find by a woman walking the trails near the canal. The women had found a violin case with two guns hidden within it.

When police searched the nearby area, they found another cache of both weapons and ammunition. The Park Service failed to provide specific details of the find other than saying that a number of weapons were discovered that included “long guns and pistols.”

Law enforcement said the guns and ammo were found in bags and buckets around the area.

The second cache was found approximately a quarter of a mile from the violin case in Northwest D.C., which is far from the inauguration route by D.C. standards.

Last week, a shootout occurred near the construction site of a U.S. Consulate in Mexico between the Mexican Army and ISIS-tied Cartel members.

It was reported that the group had planned to carry out terrorist attacks within the United States to disrupt the inauguration of President Elect Trump.

The Park Service has downplayed the find saying that none of the weapons were loaded and they did not pose a threat.

The possession of firearms in the District of Columbia is still effectively illegal (despite a court case to restore gun rights in the District).

Speculation has been fueled by several sites online assuming the guns were placed as part of a plat to assassinate Trump, however, abandoning firearms out of fear of prosecution or arrest is not uncommon in areas that are essentially gun free zones.

Bret Baier had egg on his face last night.

The Fox News host of Special Report was scheduled to cover Project Veritas’s newest work at 6 pm yesterday.

The video, which showed #DisruptJ20 activists planning to set off Butyric Acid bombs at the “Deploraball” that is taking place at the National Press Club building this week.

It was also rumored that both Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson were considering airing the undercover footage.

But at the last minute, Fox News turned tail and refused to air the footage . . . as has happened time and time again under the direction of Fox Corporate.

Despite having a representative of #DisruptJ20 on Fox & Friends recently, James O’Keefe has not appeared on Fox News in recent memory . . . only his work on occasion.

Despite the alt-left’s claims that Project Veritas and O’Keefe “selectively edit” the videos, the group’s record is extraordinarily sound . . . arguably better than the corporate media.

When pressed on Twitter as to why Baier pulled the coverage by James O’Keefe himself, the Fox News host did at least respond saying:

Why is it that Fox News will cover nearly any other story and even have guests on from an organization that was caught planning a terrorist act, yet they won’t air legitimate and proven footage from the nations’ premier undercover journalist?
