Russian spy ship spotted off US
coast a year ago returns to region

Fox News, by Lucas Tomlinson, Frank Miles

Original Article

The Russian spy ship first spotted near American waters last year is making its way back in the direction of the U.S., Fox News confirmed on Thursday. The Victor Leonov is still in the Caribbean, according to officials, but heading north off the coast of Florida, home to a U.S. Navy base located in North Florida, east of Jacksonville. The ship could be off the Florida coast by Friday if the ship maintains present course and speed, according to officials. There is also a ballistic missile submarine base located in southern Georgia known as Kings Bay, which is another likely destination for the spy ship to loiter and watch U.S. “boomers” —

Experts in FCPA law were estimating a fine of approximately $850 million to be handed down by the DOJ in exchange for settling without a trial. Holder announced the preparation of subpoenas while he was in Australia in 2011.

From the WSJ
https://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2011/07/22/doj-prepares-subpoenas-in-news-corp-inquiry/

“Issuing such subpoenas requires approval of Justice Department leadership, which hasn’t happened yet, the person said. The subpoena would give the Department broad authority to investigate relevant information relating to alleged foreign bribery and the alleged phone hacking of voicemail of Sept. 11 victims.
News Corp., which owns Dow Jones & Co., publisher of this blog, has been girding for a possible U.S. investigation, hiring high-profile attorneys who are experts in U.S. foreign bribery law, including Mark Mendelsohn, the architect of the Justice Department’s enforcement regime for the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act until he left last year to join the law firm Paul Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison LLP” (note the firm—same one used to clean house at Fox News Channel the last several years.)


Here are the disclosures of the DOJ declinations from Form 8-Ks filed by News Corp and Twenty-First Century Fox with the SEC on February 2, 2014:
On January 28, 2015, News Corporation (the "Company") was notified by the United States Department of Justice that it has completed its investigation of voicemail interception and payments to public officials in London and is declining to prosecute the Company or Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc.

Russian spy ships have been intercepting our communications non-stop since the 1960s and can do it anywhere in international waters. No news here.

And, by the way, NSA does it to them, non-stop.

The Russians are not at Florida for spying on the Navy. They are there for spying on PDT. I am sure they have a vessel off the coast of DC as well.

The Leonov is a joke. It can only intercept radio transmission. I imagine right now they´re listening to Revolution Radio Miami 93.5 FM. Do you have a request comrade?

NBC News corrects Michael Cohen story:
Feds have ‘pen-register,’ not wiretap
Washington Times, by Victor Morton    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/3/2018 5:33:15     Post Reply
NBC News retracted a key detail in the biggest story of the day — that special counsel Robert Mueller was listening in on phone conversations of longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, including at least one call with the White House. Early Thursday evening, the reporter walked that back in an appearance on MSNBC. Reporter Tom Winter, citing “three senior U.S. officials,” said his earlier story was incorrect about the type of surveillance being done on Mr. Cohen. (Tweet) “This is not a wiretap, instead it is a pen-register,” Mr. Winter said, going on to give a “plain English” description of the difference. “That means it’s a log

When Donald Trump became president, his Pennsylvania Avenue hotel quickly turned into a Republican power center where foreign governments, political groups, religious organizations and business interests have held dozens of events. The president and his family are regulars there, and the business appears to be flourishing. Trump International Hotel in Washington now figures in a potentially historic legal case alleging that the president improperly receives payments from state and foreign governments through the hotel – payments banned under the Constitution´s emoluments clause. Although Trump resigned

A glitch at Twitter has prompted the social media company to urge its more than 330 million users to consider changing their account passwords after some of them were exposed on its internal computer network. The company wrote a blog post informing users of the incident Thursday. CNET reports that the passwords were "unmasked in an internal log." There is no indication of how many users were affected, and the company said its investigation showed no passwords were misused or breached. "Out of an abundance of caution, we ask that you consider changing your password on all services where you've used this password," Twitter

House chaplain rescinds resignation

A House of Representatives chaplain who was pushed out by Speaker Paul Ryan has rescinded his resignation amid a backlash. In a two-page letter, reverend Patrick Conroy said he had not heard from Mr Ryan until the leader’s chief of staff approached him last month and asked him to resign. (Snip) Instead, Mr Conroy suggested, the decision may have been related to “my November prayer” - an apparent reference to a speech in which he issued a plea for fairness as Congress was debating a major tax overhaul. The measure was a priority for Mr Ryan, who has advocated tax cuts throughout his political career.

Hawaii is set to become the first state to ban the sale of sunscreens containing chemicals believed to be harmful to the environment. State lawmakers passed a bill Tuesday that prohibits the sale and distribution of over-the-counter sunscreens containing oxybenzone or octinoxate, two chemicals that have been found to "cause genetic damage to coral and other marine organisms." "These chemicals have also been shown to degrade corals´ resiliency and ability to adjust to climate change factors and inhibit recruitment of new corals," the bill reads. The contamination is "constantly refreshed and renewed everyday" by swimmers and

(Video) - Las Vegas police have finally released partial footage from police body cameras that showed officers nearing the hotel room where gunman Stephen Paddock unleashed a hail of gunfire on concert-goers last October. The video released on Wednesday comes from officers Sgt. Joshua Bitsko and David Newton, the Las Vegas Journal-Review reported. The first officer to enter the room, Levi Hancock, did not activate his body camera, for reasons that remain unknown to investigators. The footage appeared to show a group of armed police officers clearing the dimly lit room where Paddock, 64, was staying, the same room where he

New York - Iowa’s Republican-controlled legislature passed the most restrictive abortion ban in the United States on Wednesday, outlawing the procedure after a fetal heartbeat is detected, often at six weeks and before a woman realizes she is pregnant. (Video) The Senate voted 29-17 to pass the House of Representatives-approved bill, according to the legislature’s online voting tallies. The bill now goes to Republican Governor Kim Reynolds, an abortion opponent, who has not said publicly whether she will sign it into law. The legislation is aimed at triggering a challenge to Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 landmark

Two black men arrested for sitting at a Philadelphia Starbucks without ordering anything settled with the city Wednesday for a symbolic $1 each and a promise from officials to set up a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs. The men and their lawyer told The Associated Press the settlement was an effort to make sure something positive came out of the incident. "We thought long and hard about it and we feel like this is the best way to see that change that we want to see," said Donte Robinson, one of those arrested. "It's not a right-now thing that's good for right now, but I feel like we will see the true change over time."

Israel delivered a severe blow to Iran´s nuclear program by spiriting a cache of some 100,000 documents from a secret vault in Tehran that included details about nuclear-weapons production and test sites, senior Israeli officials told reporters on Tuesday. (Snip) Among the critical documents is a map of five secret nuclear test sites. One official quipped that any tests Iran might now do at those sites would no longer remain secret. Much of the information contained in the documents involves complex diagrams, graphs and information and will take a significant amount of time to reassemble, an official noted, hinting that Israel

Rudy Giuliani has said that Donald Trump re-paid Michael Cohen $130,000 after the personal attorney made the initial hush money payment to a porn star who claims to have had an affair with the president over a decade ago. Giuliani, who has joined Trump´s legal team in recent weeks, made the statement during an interview with Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel late Wednesday. Cohen faces a criminal probe into his business affairs by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, including over the $130,000 payment, which he has called legal.

These Congress members are sleeping on the job — and defending their right to do it. Crying poverty amid decade-long stagnant salaries and Washington’s steep cost of living, an increasing number of House lawmakers have turned into professional squatters at night, hitting the sack in their Capitol Hill offices — on everything from cots in closets to futons stashed behind constituent couches — to save a few bucks during the work week. “Washington is too expensive,” said Rep.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry argued Tuesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu essentially laid out the case for the Iran nuclear deal during a presentation alleging that Tehran was developing weapons in secret. “Every detail PM Netanyahu presented yesterday was every reason the world came together to apply years of sanctions and negotiate the Iran nuclear agreement — because the threat was real and had to be stopped,” Kerry tweeted. “It’s working!” Kerry added of the Obama-era agreement he helped negotiate. “That’s why Israeli security experts are speaking out.”

The reform movement fueled by political centrists is getting stronger all over the country, but it needs a heavyweight 2020 Independent presidential candidate to gain national traction and big-time financial backing. Ohio Gov. John Kasich ought to take up that challenge. He can’t get the nomination of his own party. Although he’s a lifelong Republican who won statewide in a key battleground state the GOP needs to win the presidency, he’s become much too moderate, not to mention high-principled and independent, for the party.
