Two AWOL soldiers joined a far-right militia in Ukraine. They returned and killed a Florida couple,


The listing said, "For Sale: Lot of Guns," and Serafin Lorenzo was interested.

The 53-year-old who went by Danny liked to buy expensive items and resell them for a profit, and the cache of guns he found on ARMSLIST.com offered the bargain he was looking for. There were four Glocks, a couple of 9mm pistols and nine high-powered rifles. The Florida seller, a guy named "Jeremy," wanted just $3,000 cash.

Police wouldn't find Lorenzo and his wife in the church parking lot until the next morning. Next to Lorenzo's body was a bill of sale for 15 firearms — and a cellphone that would send the FBI down a wild path stretching halfway around the world leading to the alleged perpetrators.

On Wednesday, federal prosecutors identified the ex-soldiers as Alex Zwiefelhofer, 22, and Craig Lang, 29, in an indictment charging them with a host of federal crimes tied to the double homicide in Estero, just south of Fort Myers. The 33-page complaint traces the soldiers' zigzagging paramilitary campaigns across the world, starting in Ukraine and, in Lang's case, finally to Venezuela, revealing how some military veterans have been drawn to extremist causes overseas.

Strange story...

Trump's OTHER whistleblower: Federal employee claims to have evidence

suggesting 'improper influence' in IRS audit of the President's tax returns


As the nation fixates on an intelligence whistleblower and what they may or may not know about Donald Trump's call with the Ukrainian President, another whistleblower is waiting in the wings.

A federal employee told the Ways and Means Committee last month of possible evidence of 'improper influence' in the IRS's audit of Trump's tax returns.

The existence of the whistleblower was contained in a quietly-filed motion by committee chair Richard Neal to a federal judge in an attempt to get hold of the President's tax returns, and was not widely reported at the time.

But Nancy Pelosi's announcement of an impeachment inquiry into Trump, which will involve the Ways and Means Committee, has brought the claims into the spotlight.

Hackers find voting machines used throughout the US are vulnerable to attack


For the third straight year, elite hackers from around the world who spent a long weekend hacking into voting equipment have released a report detailing vulnerabilities in machines still in use across the country.

Each of the more than 100 machines the researchers looked at were vulnerable to at least some kind of attack, said Georgetown professor Matt Blaze, one of the Def Con Voting Village's organizers.
The report will be of particular concern to lawmakers going into next year's Presidential election.
"I'm going to get this in the hands in every member of the US Senate," said Oregon senator Ron Wyden, the most outspoken election security advocate in the Senate, as he introduced the Def Con Voting Village report.

If anyone just watched some of MF45's UN news conference...we are way past impeachment!!

He needs to be locked up with the criminally insane!!

Katy Tur just said she feels like it's like the movie Groundhog Day.

I don't know how I missed this...the Bowling Green massacres continue...

Probe of missing Georgia votes finds 'extreme' irregularities in black districts


A trove of documents turned over in a congressional probe of missing votes in Georgia’s lieutenant governor race — along with other voting issues — revealed serious irregularities.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee is investigating whether voting machine errors caused a large drop-off in votes in the lieutenant governor race between Democrat Sarah Riggs Amico and Republican Geoff Duncan, who won the election by about 123,000 votes. The probe is looking at why so many fewer votes were recorded in the race compared to other statewide races, as well as the voter suppression issues that plagued the 2018 state elections.

There were 159,000 fewer votes cast in the lieutenant governor race than in the gubernatorial race between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp. While it is common for down-ballot races to see fewer votes, the lieutenant governor race had twice as much drop-off as other statewide races, even though it was the second race on the ballot, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

There were 80,000 fewer votes cast for lieutenant governor than in other down-ballot races, which represents a 4 percent drop-off from the gubernatorial race, compared to a 2 percent drop-off among even less charismatic down-ballot races. For various reasons, this appears illogical. Historically, the lieutenant governor race has had a much lower drop-off rate than other statewide races in previous elections.

More at link. In Florida we have seen these "undervotes" since 2000. There have been a number analyses that showed republican manipulations (it's always the GOP who win by a little), and often it's down ballot races too. With the GOP and Russians in cahoots together, it's an election nightmare. I wish the debates would focus more not election integrity.

For whatever reason, the hurricane is still heading due West and aimed at Mar-a-largo...

If it doesn't turn, it will be a bullseye.

Crossing over Grand Bahama Island now.


MSNBC just announced a disclaimer that MF45 said "Alabama" was going to be hit by Dorian...

but the NWS says that's not possible. Meanwhile, MF45 said he, "had never heard of a force 5 storm"...but someone had a quote from him from 2017 saying he had never heard of a "5" storm...so he forgot that he didn't know what he had never heard of before!!!
