    👇👇👇 on the move… Patel is top shelf.

    NSC staffer and FISA abuse report author becomes top aide to acting spy chief Richard Grenell

    ‘ Kash Patel, who previously served as an aid to the House Intelligence Committee’s Devin Nunes, was appointed to be a senior adviser to new acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell.

    A source told CBS News that there is a new mandate to clean house, including a “top to bottom” review of ODNI operations that have expanded since 2005. Patel’s move was first reported by Politico.’

    On the prospect of an indictment or a handful of indictments focused on or around John Brennan, I have always assumed that, as with other crimes involving bigger and smaller fry, that the investigators catch many small fry in crimes for which evidence is overwhelming, paint for them the picture of long prison sentences, then offer leniency in exchange for cooperation in fleshing out the evidence that will convict the bigger fish. In such cases, indictments often are unnecessary, because the prosecutors and agents put together Criminal Informations, along with guilty pleas, and file them together with the court, starting and ending the criminal culpability phase against a particular defendant in a single step.

    So I would assume that, to indict Brennan, there would likely be many criminal informations and guilty pleas unsealed at the same time. The people we know of who can be viewed as soldiers in a Brennan initiated and led criminal conspiracy include: Bruce and Nellie Orh, Stefan Halper, Joseph Mifsud, Mark Waldman, Glenn Simpson, Lisa Page, Bill Priestap, Peter Stzrok, Andy McCabe, James Comey, various leakers and sundry other operatives.

    ‘The Eyes of Darkness’: A Work of Fiction or Prophecy?

    What are the odds? Dean Kuntz, American “suspense writer Dean Kuntz published a best-selling novel in 1981 called The Eyes of Darkness. This dark thriller, written almost 40 years ago, tells the story about how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) created a deadly virus called Wuhan-400 in a secret laboratory in the Wuhan suburbs in Hubei Provence. This virus, the storyline goes, is purposely designed as a biological and chemical weapon. It is highly infectious and 100 percent lethal. In many ways, Kuntz’s work of fiction is eerily similar to the current outbreak of the coronavirus COVID-19.”

    A lot of the details are obviously wrong including lethality and such but he wrote this 40 years ago!

    Chinese Embassy sends emails to WI. Senator suggesting that Wisc. officially praise China’s efforts to combat virus.

    …….” “The awkward truth is, this request almost certainly didn’t only go to Wisconsin,” he said. “The Chinese embassy felt completely comfortable doing this because it often works. Even when it doesn’t, people rarely go public, so there’s no downside to trying.”

    Crazy stuff, interesting article:

        The tweet and thread commentary is very recent, yesterday. The news article from 2019 was there for background.

        It’s important as this move by the PRC has Vietnam (and others like Malaysia and Taiwan) ready to light the zippo.👇

        “Beijing moves to strengthen grip over disputed South China Sea
        New administrative units for Paracel and Spratly Islands are seen as helping to tighten control and help allocate resources and manpower
        There are multiple competing claims in the areas in question and the move risks further tension with the US“

        Excerpt:

        Using the Chinese names for the Paracel and Spratly Islands respectively, the Ministry of Civil Affairs announced on Saturday: “The State Council has recently approved the establishment of the Xisha and Nansha districts under Sansha city.”
        According to the notice, the Xisha administration will be based in Woody Island, also known as Yongxing Island. Meanwhile, the Nansha administration will be placed in the Fiery Cross Reef, referred to as Yongshu Reef in Chinese.

        The announcement came at a time of heightened tensions with the US and Vietnam over the South China Sea.

    And the recent message by the PLA central command on ‘National Security Day’ reminding citizens to have eyes in the back of their heads to root out spies aka foreigners, is a fairly clear notice to Taiwan and of course Hong Kong, we are coming with our ‘weapons of peace’.

        D’oh. At least the message is getting a roger. He used the Chinese platform Zoom to conduct official business before he contracted the virus.🤣🤣🤣 everyone from Asia Pacific and elsewhere took the US warnings seriously and banned it.
