COMMUNIST styled organized voting frauds “An Omen for November? New Jersey Councilmen Charged With Mail-in Vote Fraud|The New American “.

Comment by tonytran2015: This is only a practice run for COMMUNIST styled organized voting frauds. Once fraudsters have gained power by legal means they will make laws to make it impossible to vote them out.

Approximately one in five of all the votes in a Paterson, New Jersey,
spring election have been thrown out by a judge for being fraudulent.
Now four men — three of them Democrat councilmen — have been charged
with at least four counts of election fraud in connection with the incident.

… The May 12 election in Paterson came under strong suspicion of fraud
when the U.S. Post Office found several hundred ballots in one mailbox.
The discovery set off an investigation by the attorney general’s Office of Public Integrity and Accountability, which found many additional incidents of ballot theft and ballots fraudulently filled out. More than 3,000 votes in the election were ultimately disqualified as fraudulent.

Councilmen Michael Jackson and Shahin Khalique, along with Councilman-Elect Alex Mendez, have all been charged with the following:
fraud in casting mail-in vote in the third degree; unauthorized possession of ballots in the third degree; tampering with public records in the third degree, and falsifying or tampering with records in the fourth degree. Mendez faces additional charges of second-degree election fraud and third-degree false registration or transfer. A fourth accomplice, 20-year-old Abu Razyen, is charged with fraud in casting
mail-in vote and unauthorized possession of ballots in the third degree.

‘Russian bounty’ story shifts: NYT now claims Afghan CRIMINALS & not Taliban were paid, cites anonymous sources again | Aletho News

RT | June 30, 2020

…The new article, published Tuesday, says that “electronic data showing large financial transfers from a bank account controlled by Russia’s military intelligence agency to a Taliban-linked account” was intercepted by US spies and “bolsters suspicions” that Russia offered bounties to militants – as claimed by the Times last week.

Once again, the Times quotes anonymous sources – “three officials familiar with the intelligence” – so the claim is impossible to verify. No evidence of the alleged electronic transfer is provided, only a third-hand hearsay that “analysts concluded from other intelligence that the transfers were most likely part of a bounty program.”

The article eventually gets around to quoting several local officials from Afghanistan, who say that several people who transfer money through an Islamic banking system are suspected of being part of a ring of middlemen” between Russia and “Taliban-linked militants.”

The ‘hawala’ banking system does not actually use electronic transfers. Moreover, the article says the Afghan security forces found “a half-million dollars” – presumably in cash – in one Kabul home about six months ago. Safiullah Amiry, described as “the deputy provincial council chief” in Kunduz, “said the Afghan intelligence agency had told him the raids were related to Russian money being dispersed [sic] to militants.”


The issue has roiled Washington since Friday, with both Republican and Democratic lawmakers demanding briefings on the issue and information on how President Trump and his national security team have handled it. Republicans lawmakers were briefed by the White House on Monday, and a group of Democrats were briefed Tuesday.

While White House officials said Mr. Trump never received an in-person briefing on the reported threat to U.S. troops, information about the intelligence assessment apparently was included in his written daily intelligence briefing, a Republican lawmaker said.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R., Texas) after a White House briefing Monday told NBC News that he thought the intelligence was included in the President’s Daily Brief, often known as the PDB, a collection of highly sensitive intelligence presented to the president each day. “I believe it may have been” in the PDB, he told NBC News Monday.

Mr. McCaul said that intelligence presented to the president generally “has to be credible, actionable intel” and officials were still in the process of vetting the intelligence and “looking at ideas” about how to proceed.

In a separate interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mr. McCaul said one intelligence agency was “strongly dissenting” with another, but he wouldn’t name the agencies at odds or the issues in question.

Following a White House briefing Tuesday, Rep. Adam Smith (D., Wash.), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said White House officials outlined evidence of Russian wrongdoing.

“They did not dispute that there is some intelligence that supports the conclusion,” Mr. Smith said. But they insisted there is other intelligence “that disputes the conclusion,” he said.

“I think there is certainly enough there to pursue it further,” Mr. Smith added. “There is certainly enough there” to factor this into the relationship with Putin and Russia, he said.

FCC Issues Final Orders Declaring Huawei, ZTE National Security Threats

The U.S. telecommunications regulator voted in November 5-0 to issue the declaration and proposed requiring rural carriers to remove and replace equipment from the two Chinese companies from existing U.S. networks. “We cannot and will not allow the Chinese Communist Party to exploit network vulnerabilities and compromise our critical communications infrastructure,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement Tuesday.

Huawei and ZTE did not immediately respond to requests for comment but have previously sharply criticized the FCC’s actions.

FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks said on Tuesday that “untrustworthy equipment” remains in place in U.S. networks and said the U.S. Congress must allocate funding for replacements.

In May 2019, Trump signed an executive order declaring a national emergency and barring U.S. companies from using telecommunications equipment made by companies posing a national security risk. The Trump administration also added Huawei to its trade blacklist last year.

Hong Kong security law: Anger as China’s Xi signs legislation – BBC News

China forcing birth control on Uighurs to suppress population, report says – BBC News

China is forcing women to be
sterilised or fitted with contraceptive devices in Xinjiang in an apparent attempt to limit the population of Muslim Uighurs, according to
new research.

The report, by China scholar Adrian Zenz, has prompted international calls for the United Nations to investigate.

…It is believed there are about one million Uighur people and other
mostly-Muslim minorities detained in China, in what the state defines as
“re-education” camps.

China previously denied the existence of the camps, before defending them as a necessary measure against
terrorism, following separatist violence in the Xinjiang region.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on China to “immediately end these horrific practices”.

Ban on Chinese apps surprises India content makers – BBC News

What prompted the ban?

India’s Ministry of Information Technology has said the ban was the result of
“many complaints from various sources” about apps that were “stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorised manner”.

… US senators have even called for an investigation into TikTok, which fiercely rejects such claims.

The Indian government said in its statement that, “the
compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures”.

… In 2017, Alibaba’s UC Browser had come under the scanner for allegedly leaking mobile data of Indian users. And that year, India’s defence ministry asked all armed personnel and officers to uninstall 42 Chinese apps it classified as “spyware”, according to media reports.

China steps up attacks on Australia, says spying allegations just ‘the tip of the iceberg’ – ABC News

Yesterday, the Chinese Government-owned Global Times published a story alleging that Chinese authorities had disrupted an Australian spy operation two years ago.

The nationalistic paper also posted pictures of items which it said had
been seized, including cash, a compass and a map of Shanghai.

Australian government officials ridiculed the claims in private, while Prime
Minister Scott Morrison dismissed questions about the article by saying:
“I wouldn’t be relying on Chinese state media for your sources.”

But late yesterday, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian threw
the Government’s weight behind the Global Times story, saying there was
“irrefutable evidence” of Australian spying in China.

“The Five Eyes intelligence alliance has long engaged in cyber espionage, spying and surveillance on foreign governments, companies and
individuals. This is not a secret to anyone,” he said.

Chinese state media accuses Australia of spying campaign, says agents were arrested in 2018 – ABC News

Comment by tonytran2015: Which spying school still teaches its trainees to carry tourist/(public transport) maps and compass ? Haha !

Beijing’s main attack dog media outlet the Global Times published an article
saying an Australian spying operation was disrupted in China two years ago.

The jingoistic tabloid posted pictures of what it claimed were items seized, which included a map of Shanghai and a compass.

It also claimed Australian spies were operating under the cover of diplomatic passports from the embassy in Beijing.

The paper said Chinese authorities arrested the Australian spies involved in the alleged operation.

The claims come amid increasing concern about China’s espionage activities
in Australia, with China warning it will take stronger measures to crack down on Australian espionage.
