    Russian Hackers Reach U.S. Utility Control Rooms, Homeland Security Officials Say
    Blackouts could have been caused after the networks of trusted vendors were easily penetrated
    By Rebecca Smith
    July 23, 2018 7:21 p.m. ET
    Hackers working for Russia claimed “hundreds of victims” last year in a giant and long-running campaign that put them inside the control rooms of U.S. electric utilities where they could have caused blackouts, federal officials said. They said the campaign likely is continuing.

  9. I realize that this is off topic, but it’s something I came across that I thought might interest some people who may have at one time liked Glenn Beck

    . In years past, when he first came on the scene, I actually liked Glenn Beck and thought he brought out a lot of good information. Unfortunately, his good works were short lived and something happened to make him lose his mind, at least in my estimation. He has been going steadily downhill for quite some time now, but this is the absolute lowest point of his career.

    Apparently, Glenn is now openly and fully supporting one of the most depraved pedophiles who by any metric should be in jail. Beck should be put out of business if he’s not already. Disgusting.

      • last- I think Beck has gone so far down that maybe he is back to drinking and/or drugging. He freely has admitted that he is a recovering alcoholic and has spoken at length about his struggles. I simply can’t imagine any other reason he has gone so far off the rails unless it’s what you say, that they have some bad dirt on him. ** It must be pretty bad is all I can say, for him to defend this piece of human excrement.

        I think there are a lot of us who at one time liked and admired Beck. I remember his first shows on Fox and how impressed I was with his white boards and analysis.

        Just goes to show- you never really know about people.

        I don’t know how Beck thinks he can get away with this one, defending this guy’s despicable and obscene behavior. It is truly beyond the pale. This is not a free speech issue. This is about crimes against babies and innocent children.

        Glenn Beck should rot in hell along with all the other perverts.

      I agree. As a physician, I have observed his manifestation of mental illness progressively worsen in recent years. Without a neurological assessment, I won’t speculate on the nature of his sickness, but I strongly suspect it is very debilitating over time.

      I am confident that he is financially able to get excellent medical care/treatment, but, at best, it is only moderating the onset of what is likely to culminate in a very unfortunate failure of his mental health.

      Until his condition becomes obvious to casual observers, Beck will continue to negatively influence them, which is a shame.

      Looking at this from a purely business standpoint: in what world does defending someone with thousands of disgusting pedophilia references in his tweets help your “business?” How deluded is Glen Becks thinking? Does he really think this will get more listeners by defending this guy? Sick!

    Why revoke “cabal” security clearances?


    A: It makes it a crime to shared classified info with such individuals.

    They should have done this long ago.

    • Dutchman says:

      VERY good point. So, even though, since they are no longer working for government, so have no ‘need to know’, and therefore cannot directly access classified info, since they retain their clearance, those who ARE still working on Gov., in classified areas, can SHARE it with them, and that’s not illegal!

      Interesting, and ties in with godandcountry post farther down, about Sessions saying 27 active leak investigations!

      Even threatening to revoke clearances has got to make anyone sharing info with them QUITE nervous!

    Jeff Sessions, in Nov. 2017….


    “Wolfe’s arrest comes after Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified, in November 2017, that the Justice Department had numerous ongoing leaks investigations, including presumably this one. “Members of the committee, we had about nine open investigations of classified leaks in the last three years,” Sessions . “(By contrast) We have 27 investigations open today. We intend to get to the bottom of these leaks.”

    Even earlier, in August 2017, Sessions issued a stern warning to would-be leakers, “Don’t do it.”

    And now we see, thanks to Sundance, how Sessions went about both capturing Wolfe and what his sting operation revealed….


    You wanted direct, tangible evidence Sessions is a “white hat”, here you go.

    • MAGADJT says:

      Maybe he is a white hat, maybe he isn’t. The fact is that he stabbed POTUS in the back by crumpling like a cheap suit in his confirmation hearing and agreeing to recuse under dem questioning, all without discussing with POTUS first has caused every bit of this. An active AG would have stopped any of this from happening.


      • Bull Durham says:

        DJT appointed James Comey instead of firing him. Sessions recommended during the Transition to Fire James Comey on day 1.

        DJT is to blame for all that Comey did to launch the SC.

        Accept that reality and then criticize Sessions if you want.

        DJT listened to Pence and got rid of General Flynn. Flynn had buried the DNI and CIA low on the Power Structure of Intel Agencies. If DJT had kept Flynn, the CIA and DNI would be suppressed, Flynn and the Oval office would have had control over the IC.

        Get the facts straight.

        DJT made two brutally bad decisions very early on. Day 1 and Day 23. He’s suffered the ramifications every since. Has nothing to do with Jeff Sessions recusing.

    So, on the fisa warrant or application;
    Firstly, there are those who have been impatiently urging VSG- should just “declassify everything, chips call where may”, and those arguing declassifying needs to be done more STRATEGICALLY.

    Seems to me we’ve got out answer, strategic it is.

    Also, the people who submitted these applications have known all along what was in them, (no basis), VSG- has known all along, and each knee the other knew.

    So, as he’s done, time after time, “Our GLORIOUS Bastard” SAID “It’s a witch hunt” over and over, THEN he SHOWS it.

    Like when he talked in the campaign trail, over and over about the crimes committed by illegal aliens. THEN, he has a news conference, and introduced Angel Moms.

    BAM! I TOLD you illegals were killing and taking citizens, here’s PROOF.

    It reinforces HIS credibility, and destroys his opponents credibility.

    And they call for it, every time!

      The Registrant Email is odd – it’s listed in a different font on this page, and is given as asf42@yahoo.com, although on the actual registration it’s ahmfattahi@gmail.com which turns up for iran-newspaper.com, iran-daily.com, iran-varzeshi.com and al-vefagh.com.

      asf42@yahoo.com email address turns up in the registration for the domains icpi.ir and iipa.ir and al-vefagh.com

      but whois.com shows a different email for the first two: abdolahzade.s110@gmail.com which gives us ion.ir, inn.ir, iransepid.ir, iipa.ir and irandailyonline.ir

      Note that the street address, 620 Eighth Avenue NYC is the NY Times building, which includes a lot of rental office space, so there are many organizations homed there. But the commonality of the telephone number seems inexplicable.

    What does Sara know?- “The committee members say the public has an inherent right to know the information contained in the FISA application, which was not disclosed in the 412 pages of highly redacted FISA documents released on Saturday.”

    https://saraacarter.com/house-intelligence-committee-asks-potus-to-declassify-19-pages-of-fisa-for-public/ By Sara Carter | July 23, 2018 | 3:34 PM EST
    Sara explains to Hannity that the missing 19 pages of the FISA application are crucial in the pursuit of justice.

    “In a letter released Sunday night, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is requesting that President Donald Trump declassify roughly 19 pages of the fourth application of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Carter Page.” The letter to Trump (which was signed by all Republican members of the committee) is dated June 24 and states, “In the course of the Committee’s investigation, we have uncovered irregularities with the process by which DOJ and FBI obtained information and sought and renewed three times a warrant pursuant to FISA on U.S. citizen Carter Page. Because DOJ and FBI continue to obstruct the Committee’s investigation, it is time to put the facts in the public domain, consistent with the need to protect intelligence sources and methods.”

    “To enable the public to understand the DOJ’s and FBI’s basis for obtaining the FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals, we respectfully request that you declassify and release publicly, and in unredacted form, pages 10-12 and 17-34, along with all associated footnotes, of the third renewal of the FISA application on Mr. Page,” it states. “That renewal was led in June 2017 and signed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. In addition, we enclose for your information a letter signed by all 13 Committee Republicans to the Presiding Judge of the FISC, asking her to conduct an investigation into DOJ’s conduct in obtaining the FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals.”
