Exclusive: Russian is understood to have had full access to secret data during decade at embassy
US counter-intelligence investigators discovered a suspected Russian spy had been working undetected in the heart of the American embassy in Moscow for more than a decade, the Guardian has learned.
The Russian national had been hired by the US Secret Service and is understood to have had access to the agency’s intranet and email systems, which gave her a potential window into highly confidential material including the schedules of the president and vice-president. Continue reading →
This is exactly why Trump still has his own highly trained security detail with him, in addition to the Secret Service. This alone shows that there’s a major problem within the Secret Service and likely points to infiltration, possibly moles or assassins. Whatever the case, it is clearly compromised as the evidence here shows.

As the last line of defense for the leader of the world, America’s Secret Service agents are tasked with risking their lives and even standing in the way of a bullet should it be headed towards the President.
But after a tumultuous election year some in the agency are not prepared to do their sworn duty.
In a series of recent Facebook posts Kerry O’Grady, reportedly one of the nation’s top Secret Service agents, said she would not be willing to take a bullet for the President. Continue reading →
(Natural News) Editor’s note: Donald Trump is officially the president of the United States. But what happens now could change everything…in sudden, unexpected ways.
Today, we’re featuring another important essay from Crisis Investing editor Nick Giambruno on this topic. On Wednesday, Nick said Trump could go down as the worst president…but it won’t be his fault. Today, he gives more reasons why Trump is destined to fail…and what you should be watching closely today.
The mainstream media hates him. Hollywood hates him. The “Intellectual Yet Idiot” academia class hates him.
The CIA hates him. So does the rest of the Deep State, or the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy.
They did everything possible to stop Trump from taking office. None of it worked. They fired all of their bullets, but he still wouldn’t go down.
Of course, the Deep State could still try to assassinate Trump. It’s obvious the possibility has crossed his mind. He’s taken the unusual step of supplementing his Secret Service protection with loyal private security. Continue reading →
The NBPP has surged to the forefront of America’s consciousness following the killing of two black men by police and the retaliatory murder of five white policemen in the space of three days last week.
Formed in Dallas, Texas in 1989, it is not an official successor to the Black Panther Party of the 1960s, but bears the same ideology.
Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton by testifying they wind up dead. In fact, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances.
Perhaps the most notable is Vince Foster. Foster was a partner at Clinton’s law firm and knew the inner workings of the Clinton Machine. Police ruled that death a suicide, though it is often noted that Foster may have been suicided. Continue reading →
Vladimir Putin now has his own private army to enforce policies he is borrowing from both Russia’s Soviet and czarist history.
The Praetorian Guard of the Roman Emperor became infamous as one of the ancient world’s most brutal military forces. Equal parts secret service, riot police and imperial bodyguard, this corps d’elite became a permanent force only after Caesar Augustus made himself sole master of the Roman world.
These handpicked soldiers were loyal first and foremost to the emperor. After the fall of Rome, the legacy of this imperial force inspired would-be emperors from Napoleon Bonaparte to Czar Peter the Great to create private armies.
A modern-day imperial strongman is resurrecting this idea once again!
After a year-long investigation, Bloomberg has reported details on the extent of a data breach, and the motive behind it.
Russian hackers had infiltrated Dow Jones & Co to steal information to trade on before it was made public, and the breach was “far more serious than a lower-grade intrusion” disclosed by the company, Bloomberg reported, citing sources.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Secret Service and the Securities and Exchange Commission are leading an investigation, which began at least a year ago, Bloomberg reported. (http://bloom.bg/1LSxcUI) Continue reading →
Hackers thought to be working for the Russian government breached the unclassified White House computer networks in recent weeks, sources said, resulting in temporary disruptions to some services while cybersecurity teams worked to contain the intrusion.
White House officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, said that the intruders did not damage any of the systems and that, to date, there is no evidence the classified network was hacked. Continue reading →
The huge cyberattack on JPMorgan Chase that touched more than 83 million households and businesses was one of the most serious computer intrusions into an American corporation. But it could have been much worse.
Questions over who the hackers are and the approach of their attack concern government and industry officials. Also troubling is that about nine other financial institutions — a number that has not been previously reported — were also infiltrated by the same group of overseas hackers, according to people briefed on the matter. The hackers are thought to be operating from Russia and appear to have at least loose connections with officials of the Russian government, the people briefed on the matter said.
It is unclear whether the other intrusions, at banks and brokerage firms, were as deep as the one that JPMorgan disclosed on Thursday. The identities of the other institutions could not be immediately learned.
The breadth of the attacks — and the lack of clarity about whether it was an effort to steal from accounts or to demonstrate that the hackers could penetrate even the best-protected American financial institutions — has left Washington intelligence officials and policy makers far more concerned than they have let on publicly. Some American officials speculate that the breach was intended to send a message to Wall Street and the United States about the vulnerability of the digital network of one of the world’s most important banking institutions.
“It could be in retaliation for the sanctions” placed on Russia, one senior official briefed on the intelligence said. “But it could be mixed motives — to steal if they can, or to sell whatever information they could glean.” Continue reading →
Do you still think the US military isn’t being purged, infiltrated and redirected? Even the morale of the Secret Service and US Navy is collapsing under the current White House administration.
Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” President Bill Clinton’s former director of the CIA James Woolsey said President Barack Obama’s attempt to blame poor intelligence is getting “less and less true” as he pointed to the forced resignation of the Head of [Defense Intelligence Agency] Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn who was “making it very clear he was very worried about the stability of the Iraqi army.” Continue reading →
LOS ANGELES, Oct 30 (Reuters) – Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, citing warnings by President Barack Obama and National Intelligence Director James Clapper about the threat of attacks on computer networks, on Wednesday announced the creation of the city’s first “Cyber Intrusion Command Center.”
The command center, which will be operated with the assistance of the FBI and Secret Service, will be staffed by cyber security experts who will scan the city’s computer networks for threats and quickly respond to breaches, according to the mayor’s office. Continue reading →
