A former U.S. Army helicopter pilot admitted to serving as a paid agent of the Chinese government, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Thursday. Shapour Moinian pleaded guilty to making false statements during security background checks and also admitted to accepting payment in exchange for passing aviation secrets obtained from his defense contractor employer to Chinese agents, the DOJ announcement stated. Moinian now faces 15 years in prison and a fine up to $500,000 for his crimes at his August 29 sentencing.(Snip)After serving in the U.S. Army between 1977 and 2000, Moinian worked for the Department of Defense and various defense contractors, according to the DOJ announcement.


Our various Patriotic Agencies are far too busy trying to frame our previous president and planning domestic unrest events to bother much with military secrets being sold to their spiritual sister nation.

The name sounds Armenian. Armenia was a part of the Soviet Union. Was he a recent immigrant?

He was a helidopter pilot some years ago but ended up working for defense contractos. Then this Chinese “ recruiter” found him. Shades of Swalwell! Here is the very detailed press release from the US Attorney in San Diego. Details exactly what he did and when.

Everything seems to indicate that he was born here. Don’t go crazy over his name. Armenians flooded into America during the Turkish genocide. This was in the World War I era, so many have been here for over a hundred years. Many settled in the rich, fertile parts of California because they reminded them of home. Generally good people, good citizens..

Re #15 that was just one charge. There’s more: Moinian faces up to five years and a $250,000 fine for the false statements count. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for acting as an agent for the Chinese regime. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 29. Re his military service and retirement work: Moinian served in the U.S. Army from 1977 through 2000. After retiring, he worked for various cleared defense contractors in the United States and the Department of Defense. A “cleared” status indicates that “a contractor is permitted to work on projects that involve classified information,” according to the press release. According to his plea agreement, while Moinian worked as a defense contractor on various aviation projects used by the U.S. military and intelligence agencies, he was first contacted in 2017 by a Chinese national who claimed to be a recruiter for an online employment service. The individual offered Moinian the opportunity to consult for China’s aviation industry.

Sounds like the all American boy in this era. Clinton and Biden are known to have done about the same thing, just at a different level and of course they are Democrats. In the end, especially if this person fits within one or more categories of the Democrats identity politics mantra, Biden or Pelosi may give him a gold medal, as in this era where it is certain now that the inmates have taken over the DC UniParty asylum, anything can happen there.

A “professional booster” with an alleged penchant for shoplifting at Manhattan retailers notched what could be her 100th bust over the weekend—and was released without bail yet again on Sunday. Michelle McKelley, 42, was arrested late Saturday for allegedly pocketing $125 worth of goods from a CVS in Lower Manhattan, and then was freed under the state’s soft-on-crime criminal justice reforms. Prosecutors said in Manhattan Criminal Court Sunday that McKelley has failed to appear in court 27 times on her multitude of past arrests—and has five other pending cases.(Snip)McKelley, who described herself to cops as a “professional booster,” was last cut loose Thursday

The United States—long a beacon to reproductive rights activists in Latin America—will now start to resemble those countries without Roe’s guarantee of a right to legally access abortion, say campaigners. For activists in places such as El Salvador, where abortion is entirely banned, and Venezuela, where there exists on the statute an exception to save the life of a woman though in practice is equally criminal, the decades-long success of campaigners in the US was often an inspiration. For women in Argentina, where “Green Wave” activists succeeded in their own landmark victory to secure legal abortion in late 2020, there was support from counterparts in the US

San Antonio—There were 27 patients scheduled to receive abortions Friday at Alamo Women’s Reproductive Services in San Antonio. Some were already waiting outside when the clinic opened at 9 a.m., doing their best to ignore a group of protesters at the parking lot entrance, shouting at them through a loudspeaker. “You don’t have to go in!” the activists pleaded with the women. “They murder babies!” The clinic’s longtime owner, Dr. Alan Braid, was back in his office when his daughter, Andrea Gallegos, the executive administrator, ducked in. “It’s out.

Pfizer announced Saturday that tweaking its COVID-19 vaccine to better target the omicron variant is safe and works—just days before regulators debate whether to offer Americans updated booster shots this fall. The vaccines currently used in the U.S. still offer strong protection against severe COVID-19 disease and death—especially if people have gotten a booster dose. But those vaccines target the original coronavirus strain and their effectiveness against any infection dropped markedly when the super-contagious omicron mutant emerged.(Snip)Moderna recently announced similar results from tests of its combination shot, what scientists call a “bivalent” vaccine.
