President Trump Meets Putin Settle on Syria Cease-Fire | July 7, 2017

Putin And Trump Discussed Election Interference, Ukraine, Syria And Fighting Terrorism

|| Daily Caller

“President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met on the sidelines of the G20 summit Friday for more than two hours and discussed alleged Russian election interference, Ukraine, Syria and fighting terrorism.

This marked the first time the two world leaders met, and their meeting lasted 95 minutes longer than the 30 minutes that were originally scheduled.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters that Trump opened the meeting by asking about alleged Russian election interference and that him and Putin had a “lengthy and robust” discussion about it. Tillerson said that Putin “denied such involvement,” and the secretary of state described this as a “significant hindrance” in the relationship between the two nations.

Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, however, said that Trump accepted these assurances from Putin.

Tillerson told reporters that the two leaders are focused on looking forward, and that the “relationship is too important to not find a way forward.” He did add that the U.S. will work to get a “commitment” from Russia that they will not interfere in the elections of the U.S. or others.”

Refugee ‘advocate’ flees Europe due to fears over terrorism – caused by the very “refugee” policies he advocated

“Actor and immigration activist George Clooney will move to Los Angeles with his wife Amal and newborn twins Ella and Alexander due to security concerns at his England estate, according to a report.

Life & Style magazine reported last week that the 56-year-old Oscar-winner will move his newly-expanded family to his mansion in Studio City, California, after deeming his 17th century mansion in Sonning, England to be not sufficiently safe for them.

“As soon as Amal found out she was pregnant, he hired former Secret Service agents to assess all his properties and make recommendations for improvement,” an unnamed Clooney “insider” told the magazine. “His mansion in Studio City [Calif.] was deemed the most secure, and it’s within minutes of an LAPD station.”

Hackers Target U.S. Nuclear Facilities, Energy Infrastructure

“Since May, hackers have been attacking the U.S. energy infrastructure, including at least one company which manages a nuclear power plant in Kansas. The New York Times reported Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued an urgent report about the attacks last week:

Among the companies targeted was the Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation, which runs a nuclear power plant near Burlington, Kan…

Wolf Creek officials said that while they could not comment on cyberattacks or security issues, no “operations systems” had been affected and that their corporate network and the internet were separate from the network that runs the plant…

Hackers wrote highly targeted email messages containing fake résumés for control engineering jobs and sent them to the senior industrial control engineers who maintain broad access to critical industrial control systems, the government report said.

The fake résumés were Microsoft Word documents that were laced with malicious code. Once the recipients clicked on those documents, attackers could steal their credentials and proceed to other machines on a network.

Who is behind these carefully planned attacks aimed at our energy sector? According to both the NY Times and Bloomberg, all signs point to Russia. “The chief suspect is Russia, according to three people familiar with the continuing effort to eject the hackers from the computer networks,” Bloomberg reported late Thursday. Russia has previously attacked power grids in Ukraine so there is concern it may be trying to set up for a similar attack here in the U.S.”
