It’s Monday, even though I’m writing this on Tuesday. I’m working with a new schedule, so my normal pattern of writing before going to sleep might not be tenable for the next few weeks. I’ll do what I can, since we’re getting close to some craziness about to drop.
FBI DID NOT INFORM TARGETS OF RUSSIAN HACKING ATTACKS
This came out on Sunday from the AP. Out of the 80 targets that the AP contacted, only 2 were previously told of the hacking attempts by the FBI. The rest found out from the AP.
PROJECT VERITAS TRIED TO SCREW WITH THE WASHINGTON POST. IT DID NOT GO WELL
James O’Keefe is a lying sack of shit, a corrupt gun for hire whose lies have lead directly to innocent people dying violent, needless deaths.
Recently, his group Project Veritas attempted to discredit the Washington Post, sexual abuse victims, and decency in general by trying to show that the media is biased against Roy Moore.
This plan blew up in their face.
WaPo received a random tip from someone claiming to have some dirt on Roy Moore. When the Post did their research, it turned out that the woman, Jaime Phillips, was a paid operative of O’Keefe’s.
The Post confronted her with the evidence, including her GoFundMe page looking for money to move to New York to fight the evil media, called bullshit on every part of her story, and recorded her recording the interview. Then, they followed her to PV HQ, confronted O’Keefe, and recorded that as well.
Oh, by the way, Trump has donated to O’Keefe and PV before. They were involved in several ploys during the 2016 election, so there is a good chance that he is on Mueller’s radar.

JAMES WOOLSEY MEETS TRUMP AT MAR-A-LAGO FOR DINNER
James Woolsey is a former CIA Director, and was a witness to the September 2016 meeting where Mike Flynn conspired with the Turks to kidnap a cleric. James was interviewed by the Special Counselor, and supposedly testified before a grand jury.
Last week, Trump invited him to dinner in Florida. They talked for over an hour.
I wonder, what are the odds that Woolsey was wearing a wire?

That’s it for now. Once I figure out a format and schedule, I’ll work with that until the new year. This might also force me to write structured articles more often.
Let’s see how it goes.
Thank you, and have a good one.
