UNINSTALL KASPERSKY SOFTWARE YESTERDAY!

If you have Kaspersky Anti-Virus, or any other software installed on your computer, uninstall that shit right the fuck now.

Then, rip the hard drive out, take it to a person who can get your special files off it, and only if you don’t have backups already.

Then buy a new computer, and never, ever, ever, ever, ever install ANY Kaspersky software again.

DO IT!  This post will still be here when you’re done.

Why go to such extremes?

Here’s why.  The Russians stole a metric fucktonne of information from the NSA, and they used Kaspersky to do it.

An NSA contractor who had Kaspersky installed on their computer, had downloaded some files to their laptop.  The Russians, using Kaspersky as a backdoor, tunneled in to this machine and stole all of the files on the laptop.  Since this mental midget didn’t get caught the first time, they kept doing this, until eventually other IC agencies found out about the leak.

 

IS JOHN KELLY OUT AS CHIEF OF STAFF?

This one comes from the Rumor Mill.  Take it with a grain of salt.  Sea Salt works well, but if you have Himalayan Pink Rock Salt, just use it.

Earlier this week, when Trump was on his way to Las Vegas, Chief of Staff John Kelly was not on Air Force 1 when it took off.  While not completely unusual, it did raise some eyebrows.

According to a couple people on Twitter, John Kelly either already had resigned or will resign.

Yep, that’s him listening to Donald Trump fuck up a speech at the U.N. by ad-libbing that Neo-Nazis are fine people.

The reporting is a little sporadic.  @AngryWhiteHouseStaffer (Angry) and @Alt_SpicerLies (Spicy) reported early in the day that Kelly had quit last week, but was serving out his notice.

Confirmation has been sketchy on this.  Expect to hear something about this tomorrow in the FRIDAY NEWS DUMP!

 

GENERALS SPEAKING OUT AGAINST TRUMP

This is a bit peculiar.  In a well-functioning American Republic, the Military Leaders defer to the Civilian leadership in pretty much everything that isn’t military business.  The Military serves the Citizenry, not vice-versa.

So, when multiple generals and admirals speak out against the President and his policies, that is definitely not normal.

Speaking out against a Senior Officer is heavily frowned upon in strict chains of command like the Military. (One of the reasons I didn’t serve.  It’s not that I have a problem with authority figures, I have a problem with idiots in authority, and I don’t always say the smartest thing in the spur of the moment.)  Speaking out against the Commander in Chief is nearly verboten.

The Military is acting like the conscious of the country while the President actively does the worst thing possible at all times.

 

BREITBART COURTED ALT-RIGHT.  HOW THE F*** DID BUZZFEED GET ALL OF MILO’S EMAILS?

Here’s a great article by BuzzFeed about Milo Yiannopoulos and how rose through the ranks at Breitbart from a Tech Editor to the Face and Voice of the Alt-Right.  It’s a very, very long read, but it is absolutely amazing.  This is the kind of reporting that used to be only the domain of the Washington Post or the New York Times.  Like, Pulitzer quality reporting.

This article asks “How does a Gay Jew with a Greek name and Black husband end up as the poster boy for a bunch of misogynistic, racist, hate-filled, anti-democracy white supremacists and Neo-Nazis?”

And yes, I’m aware that I censored out the F-Bomb in this section title, but dropped it like 10 times so far.

 

TRUMP AND THE “FAKE NEWS” TWEETS

Once again, Trump calls the media FAKE NEWS.  Once again, Congress says Not Fake.

This is getting old.  Every time Trump hears about a report he doesn’t like, he cries “Fake News.”  The worse the news, that tiny-handed prick jumps on the caps lock key, then attacks the place that reached out to him or the White House by comment.

 

SECRETARY OF TRANSPORTATION IMPLICATED IN USING PRIVATE JETS FOR TRAVEL.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has been accused of taking 7 trips on private jets.  If her name sounds familiar, she’s also Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s wife.

On top of that, The Cryptkeeper and Trump Spokeswoman KellyAnne Conway has been on several of those flights, and more details came out today about Ryan Zinke’s use of jets.

Chao, Shulkin, Perry, Mnuchin, Price, Zinke.  5 out of 15 cabinet members.  One has been forcefully resigned already.

 

NYC AG RETURNS SOME OF THE MONEY DONATED BY TRUMP

Guilty Conscience Much?  Or, is he returning money in an attempt to not appear dirty AF and avoid a corruption and bribery charge?

 

DEBUNKED IRS SCANDAL, AND THE FRACTURING GOP

New York Magazine wrote this article breakdown about the mass hysteria that’s taking over the GOP at times, this time against the IRS.

 

That’s it for …, oh, what’s that?  One more story?

What’s that?  oh…

ROBERT MUELLER MET WITH CHRISTOPHER STEELE THIS PAST SUMMER!

I talked about this yesterday, but I didn’t have an article confirming it.  The Steele Dossier was originally a piece of opposition research against Donald Trump paid for by one of his opponents in the GOP Primary (*cough*Jeb Bush*cough*).  That person hired Fusion GPS, who then contracted out former MI6 Agent Christopher Steele.  Steele, having previously worked on the FIFA corruption scandal, combined some of his previous work and rolled it into his job on Donald Trump.

The Dossier is definitely worth a read.  There are some salacious claims in there, but much of it has already been confirmed.  Multiple meetings, people, and places have been corroborated by the press, and reverse engineered by law enforcement and Congressional investigators.

This past summer, Steele shared his info with the FBI.  He shared his notes, his sources, his raw intel, all of it with the FBI.

And Bobby Three Sticks was part of that conversation.

 

That’s it for today.  I’m going to do a little neatening up tonight, and plan my next few long form stories.  I’ve got a few in the pipeline, like a breakdown of the Justice League, more articles on Crimes, a few more breakdowns of how the government works, how to spot propaganda, and why voter fraud is a red herring.

Thank you, and have a good one.
