A Chinese company hacked Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server allowing the company to have access to virtually all her emails in real time according to a report by the Daily Caller.
God only knows what kind of information she allowed to be compromised. I’m certain this story will be reported prominently on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, etc. and there will be an announcement by the FBI that they’re re-opening the investigation. But I not holding my breath for either.
A Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington, D.C., area hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server throughout her term as secretary of state and obtained nearly all her emails, two sources briefed on the matter told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The Chinese firm obtained Clinton’s emails in real time as she sent and received communications and documents through her personal server, according to the sources, who said the hacking was conducted as part of an intelligence operation.
The Chinese wrote code that was embedded in the server, which was kept in Clinton’s residence in upstate New York. The code generated an instant “courtesy copy” for nearly all of her emails and forwarded them to the Chinese company, according to the sources.
The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that virtually all of Clinton’s emails were sent to a “foreign entity,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, said at a July 12 House Committee on the Judiciary hearing. He did not reveal the entity’s identity, but said it was unrelated to Russia.
Two officials with the ICIG, investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion, according to a former intelligence officer with expertise in cybersecurity issues, who was briefed on the matter. He spoke anonymously, as he was not authorized to publicly address the Chinese’s role with Clinton’s server.
Among those FBI officials was Peter Strzok, who was then the bureau’s top counterintelligence official. Strzok was fired this month following the discovery he sent anti-Trump texts to his mistress and co-worker, Lisa Page. Strzok didn’t act on the information the ICIG provided him, according to Gohmert.
Gohmert mentioned in the Judiciary Committee hearing that ICIG officials told Strzok and three other top FBI officials that they found an “anomaly” on Clinton’s server. More
Anyone who doesn’t believe Hilly’s home server wasn’t hacked by multiple countries is a fool. Surely this in no way contributed to the discovery and dismantlement of the US’s spy operation in China. An event that the NYT called “one of the American government’s worst intelligence failures in recent years.”Don't forget to Like The Washington Sentinel on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at The Republican Legion.

Look Not to Sweden: A Pandemic Failure
From the mid 1930´s though to the early 1990´s, most Western nations planned to be self-sufficient in case of closed borders and wars.
Probably the worst, and most naïve, example is the Kingdom of Sweden. (more…)
Rare, Powerful Idaho Earthquake Raises Alarms About ‘Big One’ as Yellowstone ‘Pulses’
If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
As if we don’t already have enough to worry about, now there are whispers of a possible earthquake-related cataclysm on the horizon.
Nearly the entirety of the world is in the midst of a lockdown the likes of which we’ve never seen in our modern era. Sure, there was the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, but few of us alive today remember much about that, and we are living in an entirely different world than that of a century ago.
In the USA alone, there is the possibility of 100,000 deaths – nearly twice as many American casualties as we suffered during the two decades of the Vietnam War.
Now, in the middle of all of this, we have some unusual seismic activity out west to worry about.
A preliminary magnitude 6.5 earthquake rattled Idaho on Tuesday with shaking felt across the region, including Washington state, Utah, Nevada and Canada.
Tuesday’s quake was the strongest in the state since the 1983 Borah Peak earthquake and reportedly killed two people. This earthquake was so strong that the eruptions of Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park were noticeably longer.
It is that last bit about Yellowstone that has some folks worried.
An area the size of Chicago in Yellowstone National Park has been inflating and deflating by several inches over the past decade
The Norris Geyser Basin, the oldest, hottest and most dynamic thermal area in the park, was observed to rise 5.9 inches each year from 2013 to 2015 – an unusual event that left researchers baffled.
Now, using satellite radar and GPS data, experts have determined the ground deformation was caused by magma intrusions trapped below the basin’s surface.
As magma made its way to the surface, the pressure pushed rocks above it up and created an erratic pulsating effect, according to National Geographic.
The Yellowstone Caldera has been fodder for conspiracy theorists and doomsday prophets for years, with many believing that the entire region could one day erupt violently, in what would trigger a mass extinction event here on planet earth.
We Told You So
On February 26, the world was warned about the growing extent of the Coronavirus. Our Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) company, IA Analytica tweeted;
“OSINT analysis: Coronavirus will be declared global Pandemic. All of Europe & U.S. will be infected. Our simulation also suggests that the Pandemic will expand into Africa and SE Asia and run for about two years. Potential risk that the current virus strain will mutate.” @analyticaia (more…)
Soros Wants Zuckerberg Removed from Facebook for ‘Helping’ Trump Reelection Efforts
Soros is apparently ignoring the years of conservative censorship that the platform has engaged in.
There are some folks who are just far too removed from reality to make sense of what they are saying. Liberal billionaire George Soros may very well fit into that category.
Soros has an immense amount of wealth, that’s for certain. He’s not like you or I in that regard. Instead, the Hungarian leftist lives in the ivory towers of the world, as part of the infamous 1%.
This distance between Soros and the rest of humanity was on full display this week.
The Daily Mail reports that leftist billionaire George Soros has called for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg to be removed from their positions at the company as he believes they are “helping Trump get re-elected” by refusing to fact check political ads.
In a letter to the Financial Times, Soros accused Zuckerberg and Sandberg of having a “mutual assistance agreement” with Trump that would “help him get re-elected.” Soros made similars claims in an op-ed published in the New York Times earlir this month titled “George Soros: Mark Zuckerberg Should Not Be in Control of Facebook.” Soros discussed the social media giant Facebook and stated that he doesn’t believe the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg — who controls 53 percent of voting shares of Facebook — should be in charge of the platform.
What’s missing from Soros’ comment is context, however.
Facebook has been working diligently over the course of the last several years to subvert conservative viewpoints, both by employing algorithmic adjudicators and human censors alike. There is no conspiracy to have Trump reelected, not by a long shot, but Soros is far too removed from the regular world to understand this.
Parody Video of Pelosi Tearing SOTU Speech Stays Online Despite Democratic Protests
Facebook doesn’t care about your feelings, and that has irked the Democrats to no end.
Tuesday night’s State of The Union address was one for the history books, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempting to steal the spotlight from President Trump at the event’s conclusion.
With the rip heard ’round the world, Pelosi fomented her place in the pantheon of the progressive “resistance”, tearing a gifted copy of the President’s address in half while the rest of the chamber politely applauded the achievements outlined by Trump in the speech. The moment immediately went viral, with predictably divided opinions as to how the gesture fits into the national narrative.
Many saw the act as a show of disrespect for those whom the President lauded during the State of The Union address itself, including a member of the fabled Tuskegee Airmen.
Now, an edited video that made it appear as though the ripping stunt was in direct relation to the celebration of the brave service member is making the rounds online, and the left is helpless to stop its spread.
Within hours, the speaker’s office was demanding both social media companies remove the video, arguing it was unfair to Pelosi, who actually stood and applauded the airman during the speech.
Both Facebook and Twitter decided against removing the Trump video, although the companies cited different reasons for their decisions.
The dispute became public Friday when Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, posted a link to a criticism of the video Friday afternoon, writing “The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests.”
The argument turned fierce in a hurry.
Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesman, replied to Hammill on Twitter: “Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?”
Hammill fired back: “What planet are you living on? This is deceptively altered. Take it down.”
Critics of Facebook have repeatedly chastised the platform for allowing misleading content, which often remains on the site for the purpose of financially capitalizing from the controversy that it creates.
Teen Shocks NASA by Finding New Planet 3 Days Into Internship
A New York high school student shocked the scientific establishment by identifying a new planet only three days into his internship.
A New York high school student shocked the scientific establishment by identifying a never before seen planet only three days into his internship.
Wolf Cukier, 17, was interning at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland last year when he uncovered what became known as TOI 1338 b — a planet orbiting two stars instead of one, Yahoo News reports.
The teen caught the telltale signs of a planet while reviewing data captured by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), NASA said.
“I was looking through the data for everything the volunteers had flagged as an eclipsing binary, a system where two stars circle around each other and from our view eclipse each other every orbit,” Cukier said. “About three days into my internship, I saw a signal from a system called TOI 1338.”
“At first, I thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong. It turned out to be a planet,” he added.
The teen chalked up some scientific firsts with his identification:
TOI 1338 b is the first circumbinary planet discovered by TESS, according to NASA. The planet is around 6.9 times larger than Earth — nearly the size of Saturn — and lies in a system 1,300 light-years away in the constellation of Pictor.
The world orbits the two stars every 95 days, the agency said. One star is about 10 percent bigger than our sun, while the other is a cooler and dimmer M dwarf that is only a third of our sun’s mass.
Cukier likened his discovery to the Star Wars planet, Tatooine.
“I discovered a planet, which has two stars that orbit around. So, if you think to Luke’s homeworld, Tatooine, from Star Wars, it’s like that. Every sunset, there’s going to be two stars setting,” Cukier said.
The high schooler joked that the rest of his internship didn’t live up to its first 72 hours.
“Funny thing is, I didn’t find anything else for the rest of the internship, even though I found one on like day three,” he said.

FBI Issues Warning Over Black Friday Television Sales, Citing Cybersecurity Risk
It might not be your fellow shoppers that you need to worry about.
If we’re being honest, Black Friday might be one of the most disturbing pop culture events in the United States.
It’s consumerism run rampant, and it reeks of excess in ways that few other materialistic machinations do. It’s a declaration to the rest of the world that Americans are so focused on what they have, that they are willing eschew their own morality to get more for less.
Witnessing the inevitable violence and chaos of these Black Friday events can be more than a little bit disheartening, and there are certainly dangers to be had for those foolish enough to brave the doorbuster madness.
But what if it were the items themselves that you need to be wary of, and not the lesser inclinations of your rival shoppers?
The FBI’s Portland, Oregon, field office shared some tips this week for anyone who needs to secure a smart TV.
Some models of smart TVs include built-in cameras. They can be used for video chatting with friends and family, and some can let the TV recognize who is watching and suggest programming based on their past preferences.
To prevent being a victim of hackers via your new television, the FBI has a few tips for would-be buyers.
Because each smart TV is different, owners should search for the exact model number online and words like “microphone,” “camera” and “privacy” to learn how to control those features.
Don’t leave security settings on the default option and chance passwords if possible. It’s also a good idea to check how to turn off microphones, cameras and personal data collection ahead of making a purchase, and considering a different model if they can’t be turned off.
A piece of black tape can help when a camera can’t be turned off.
Check whether the manufacturer can and whether it does update the device with security patches.
The FBI is also concerned that some smart TV’s could be used as a sort of backchannel into accessing your home router and wifi, which could lead to any number of issues more devastating than unwanted camera access.
