On Friday, April 14th, the Military District of Washington announced that General James Grazioplene (Ret.) was being charged with six specifications of rape of a minor on multiple occasions between 1983 and 1989. The Army said that the investigation remains open.
The government is on autopilot. The federal budget is largely consumed by entitlement programs for the elderly and the poor (considered “nondiscretionary”), and state budgets are increasingly eaten up by public-employee pension costs. As a result there is little room for the people to assert their will through the democratic process.
two very large and important indicators which provide absolute proof that all of the economies of the Corrupt West are in a Greater Depression: interest rates and energy demand.
[A Wall Street rich guy writes]many of my close friends are from a socioeconomic class that should be deeply loyal to the power structure. The big secret is that they aren’t.

Buried among this new treasure trove, there are several mentions of previously disclosed NSA top secret programs and software such as “STRAITBIZARRE,” used to control implants remotely, and “JEEPFLEA,” a project to hack the money transferring system SWIFT. These provide yet another hint that these are indeed tools stolen from the NSA’s elite hacking team.
Perhaps more surprisingly, the dump also included one tool that was used in the famous Stuxnet worm, arguably the world’s first digital weapon, used to hit an Iranian nuclear power facility and damage its centrifuges to slow down the country’s nuclear weapons program.
The tool that appears to link the new dump and the famous digital weapon is an exploit for Windows’ MOF files, which appears to be “almost the exact same script” used in Stuxnet,
