As Criminal Probe Advances, Prosecutors Focus On What Boeing Told The FAA

More details about the federal criminal investigation into the FAA’s certification process for the Boeing 737 MAX 8 leaked Friday night, appearing in the Wall Street Journal – a news organization that has consistently lead coverage of the investigation, alongside the New York Times and Seattle Times. Per the latest report, prosecutors are focusing on whether Boeing withheld crucial information from regulators – regulators who, as the NYT reported earlier this month, had delegated much of the approval process to internal units of the Boeing Company. Here’s more from WSJ on the criminal probe, which began late last year after a 737 owned by Indonesia’s Lion Air suddenly plunged into the Java Sea a few minutes after takeoff. The probe has only intensified since Ethiopia Airlines flight ET302 crashed under similarly mysterious circumstances just six minutes after takeoff. In the intervening weeks, questions about the plane’s new anti-stall system, known as MCAS, which was unique to the 737 Max, having been added to compensate for changes in the plane’s design. Additionally, Boeing has also faced scrutiny over “optional” safety features that some say could have prevented the crashes. Federal investigators are looking into whether Boeing provided incomplete or misleading information about the 737 MAX aircraft to U.S. air-safety regulators and customers, people familiar with the matter said. The focus on disclosures to regulators, which hasn’t been previously reported, is part of...

No-Deal-Brexit Doomsday-Plan: Soldiers In Nuclear Bunker Ready To Go

Authored by Joshua Rarrick via ValueWalk.com, The UK is facing tough days ahead as British Prime Minister Theresa May presses forward with Brexit. Citizens have been warned to begin stockpiling basic supplies, such as food and medicine, in the event that no deal is made between the European Union and the UK. While it might seem a bit extreme to those who live in the far western world, many people believe that if no deal is reached there will be widespread civil unrest. A Brexit doomsday plan has been put into action. Brexit Doomsday Plan Includes Troops Reuters reports that the UK has activated troops and deployed them to a special nuclear bunker beneath the Ministry of Defence. The action has been dubbed Operation Redfold, and it is a key part of the UK’s Brexit doomsday plan. According to the report, a total of 3,500 troops will be put on standby as the government begins to enter “very high readiness mode.” Sky News, claiming a government insider as their source, said that key departments that would most likely be disrupted by a no deal Brexit will be manning posts 24 hours a day to try and keep things under control. The departments of Health, Transport, and Defence were among key departments the report listed as being at the ready. What Is Operation Redfold? Operation Redfold is the military arm of Operation Yellowhammer, which is a Brexit...

WikiLeaks Raising $1 Million For Leaked Copy Of Mueller Report

DOJ staffers who like money and know where AG Barr keeps the keys to his safe, take note. WikiLeaks has launched a $1 million fundraiser over the next seven days “used to facilitate the full publication” of the long-awaited Mueller report, which was completed on Friday and submitted to Attorney General William Barr for review.  A summary of key findings is expected to reach Congress this weekend, which is expected to be made public. A release of the full report, however, will be up to Barr, the White House and Congress.  And while many on the left – including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer – are calling for the public release of the report so they can pick through its findings for “Gotchas!” to ride into 2020, conservatives are similarly calling for its release so they can finally put the conspiracy theory to rest and expose the investigation as a “witch hunt” once and for all.  How has it not been leaked yet — zerohedge (@zerohedge) March 22, 2019 Enter WikiLeaks:  ANNOUNCE: @WikiLeaks launches $1m goal for the full publication of the ‘Mueller report’.

Caitlin Johnstone Rages: “Mock The Russiagaters. Mock Them Ruthlessly”

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com, The Robert Mueller investigation which monopolized political discourse for two years has finally concluded, and his anxiously awaited report has been submitted to Attorney General William Barr. The results are in and the debate is over: those advancing the conspiracy theory that the Kremlin has infiltrated the highest levels of the US government were wrong, and those of us voicing skepticism of this were right. The contents of the report are still secret, but CNN’s Justice Department reporter Laura Jarrett has told us all we need to know, tweeting, “Special Counsel Mueller is not recommending ANY further indictments am told.” On top of that, William Barr said in a letter to congressional leaders that there has been no obstruction of Mueller’s investigation by Justice Department officials. So that’s it, then. A completely unhindered investigation has failed to convict a single American of any kind of conspiracy with the Russian government, and no further indictments are coming. The political/media class which sold rank-and-file Americans on the lie that the Mueller investigation was going to bring down this presidency were liars and frauds, and none of the goalpost-moving that I am sure is already beginning to happen will change that. Say it again: Mueller has indicted *zero* Americans for conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election, which was central impetus for the Special Counsel in the first place....

SPLC Implodes: President And Legal Director Resign Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal

The Southern Poverty Law Center – the “vicious left-wing attack dog” used by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon to identify “hate groups” – is unraveling.  A week after co-founder Morris Dees was ousted over sexual misconduct claims – with two dozen employees signing a letter of concern over “allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism,” the head of the SPLC, Richard Cohen, as well as the organization’s legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, resigned on Friday.  Morris Dees, Richard Cohen, Rhonda Brownstein Cohen had been with the organization 33 years and was one of its most prominent figures.  At 5:03 p.m. Friday, Cohen sent a message to staff, with the subject line “Stepping Down,” announcing that he, too, would be leaving the organization that he and Dees had turned into a research and fundraising juggernaut. “Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote, while asking the staff to avoid jumping to conclusions before the board completes an internal review of the Montgomery, Ala., organization’s work culture. –LA Times Earlier this week, the SPLC board of directors appointed Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, Tina Tchen – who, in an unrelated matter, unsuccessfully tried to pull strings and have the Jussie Smollett case transferred from the Chicago PD to the FBI. Tchen is heading up the inquiry into the sexual misconduct claims. Tina Tchen...
