Jeff Bezos Phone 'Hacked By Saudi Crown Prince': Report

Jeff Bezos was allegedly hacked by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman or someone operating his WhatsApp account, according to The Guardian, so who knows.





Bezos was apparently hanging out in an encrypted WhatsApp chat room in 2018 when he opened an "infected video file" sent to him from the Saudi heir's account, instantly installing malware on his pho

ne. Within hours, large amounts of data had been exfiltrated - though exactly what was taken or how it may have been used is unknown.




The two men had been having a seemingly friendly WhatsApp exchange when, on 1 May of that year, the unsolicited file was sent, according to sources who spoke to the Guardian on the condition of anonymity. -Guardian




Recall that after the National Enquirer published an exposé in early 2019 detailing Bezos’s extramarital affair, the billionaire revealed that the publication had threatened to publish explicit photos of him unless he publicly stated that there had been no political motivation for the tabloid’s original story. Bezos would make no such concession - instead, penning a Medium post exposing the attempt.



And while the Enquirer's parent company AMI insists their source was Michael Sanchez, the brother of Mr. Bezos’ girlfriend - Bezos's security consultant consultant, Gavin de Becker, alleged the Saudis were behind the leak - as they had "been intent on harming Jeff Bezos since . . . The Post began its relentless coverage" of the murder of Saudi dissident and Post journalist, Jamap Khashoggi."



De Becker writes:




Our investigators and several experts concluded with high confidence that the Saudis had access to Bezos’ phone, and gained private information. As of today, it is unclear to what degree, if any, AMI was aware of the details.



We did not reach our conclusions lightly. The inquiry included a broad array of resources: investigative interviews with current and former AMI executives and sources, extensive discussions with top Middle East experts in the intelligence community, leading cybersecurity experts who have tracked Saudi spyware, discussions with current and former advisers to President Trump, Saudi whistleblowers, people who personally know the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (also known as MBS), people who work with his close associate Saud al-Qahtani, Saudi dissidents, and other targets of Saudi action, including writer/activist Iyad el-Baghdadi.



Experts with whom we consulted confirmed New York Times reports on the Saudi capability to “collect vast amounts of previously inaccessible data from smartphones in the air without leaving a trace—including phone calls, texts, emails”—and confirmed that hacking was a key part of the Saudis’ “extensive surveillance efforts that ultimately led to the killing of [Washington Post] journalist Jamal Khashoggi.” -Gavin de Becker (via the Daily Beast)




As the Post noted in October, "After Khashoggi’s killing in Istanbul, the planet’s richest man, who also owns The Post, became the target of waves of criticism from Saudi-based online trolls." (Also interesting, and perhaps related, is a $1 billion Saudi data center deal Amazon was vying for in March 2018, which began to fizzle out as early as February 2019 - as the dick-pic scandal unfolded.)



Sanchez, meanwhile, vehemently denied being AMI's source, while de Becker said in The Beast that Sanchez was contacted by the Enquirer first, not the other way around.



Michael Sanchez


AMI has repeatedly insisted they had only one source on their Bezos story, but the Journal reports that when the Enquirer began conversations with Michael Sanchez, they had “already been investigating whether Mr. Bezos and Ms. Sanchez were having an affair.” Michael Sanchez has since confirmed to Page Six that when the Enquirer contacted him back in July, they had already “seen text exchanges” between the couple. If accurate, the WSJ and Page Six stories would mean, clearly and obviously, that the initial information came from other channels—another source or method. -Gavin de Becker (via the Daily Beast)




AMI insists Sanchez was their source, however The Guardian now says it was the Saudis all along - at the highest level. Of course, given the publication, we should be wary that the Bezos-MbS 'source' is the same one who told them Manafort met with Julian Assange in the Ecuador's London embassy.

Demands Grow For FBI To Interview Prince Andrew Over Friendship With Jeffrey Epstein

Demands Grow For FBI To Interview Prince Andrew Over Friendship With Jeffrey Epstein

Attorneys for Jeffrey Epstein accusers have called on the FBI to speak with disgraced British royal Prince Andrew over his years-long association with Jeffrey Epstein, which would demonstrate "justice and accountability for the victims."





Attorney Lisa Bloom told The Telegraph that while it's "great" that Prince Andrew is stepping away

from his royal duties, he needs to cooperate with US investigators.



"It's great that he's stepping away from his royal duties, but it's really not about that — it's about justice and accountability for the victims, so it's important that he says he's going to cooperate with law enforcement," said Bloom.




Bloom said Prince Andrew should answer questions from all the accusers' attorneys — in particular the attorney of Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleges she was coerced into having sex with Prince Andrew on three separate occasions when she was 17.



Giuffre has offered a detailed account of a March 10, 2001, encounter in which she said she danced with the prince at Tramp nightclub in London before he had sex with her.



Guiffre publicly released a photograph of her and Prince Andrew in which he has his arm around her waist, which she says was taken at the house of Ghislaine Maxwell, who an ex-girlfriend of Epstein's who has been accused of acting as his "fixer" at the time. -Business Insider






Meanwhile, attorney Gloria Allred who also represents Epstein accusers, urged the prince to provide any evidence that might help victims seek justice "without conditions and without delay," including emails, texts and calendars - adding that the prince's staff should also provide relevant information, according to the BBC.



Allred added that if the prince didn't offer information voluntarily, he might be asked to speak under oath in a criminal investigation into potential Epstein co-conspirators, along with civil lawsuits brought by Epstein's accusers.



"I haven't made a determination yet as to ... whether we will need to take Prince Andrew's deposition," said Allred, adding "But I'm saying he should provide it in any civil case as well, where his testimony might be relevant."



"It's totally extraordinary," veteran royal watcher and Majesty magazine editor-in-chief Ingrid Seward told CBS on Thursday. "You don't expect a member of the royal family to be caught up in the life of a seedy pedophile. You just don't."



Really Ingrid?

Prince Andrew To Officially Disappear From Public Life After Interview Disaster

Prince Andrew To Officially Disappear From Public Life After Interview Disaster

Pedo pal Prince Andrew says he's stepping away from public duties for the "forseeable future" after giving an interview to the BBC widely panned as a "catastrophic mistake" as he fumbled through questions about his friendship with dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.



In a Wednesday statement, Andrew says that he has asked the Queen for permission to step back fro

Read More
m public duties, and that he regrets his "ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein."




Corporate logos vanish



Meanwhile, now that Prince Andrew is "taking a step back from public duties for the foreseeable future" now that his "former association" with Epstein has become a "major disruption" to his family's work, it's becoming clear that the UK business community made clear it is no longer comfortable with the Duke of York.



With the entirety of the Royal Family's resources at his disposal, it's surprising that Prince Andrew wasn't able to come up with a better excuse after one of Jeffrey Epstein's accusers said she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was still a minor. Delving deep into her account of the act, Andrew said that he couldn't have possibly slept with the young woman, because, during the period in question, he was unable to sweat because of a sports-related injury.





Prince Andrew, his accuser, and the missing Ghislaine Maxwell



In her account of the encounter, the young woman describes how the Duke of York sweated all over her.



Really? That's your excuse? You couldn't sweat?



Then there was the disastrous BBC interview (watch the full thing below):





While Andrew has now cemented his status as the new black sheep of the royal family, it appears global corporations are, perhaps for the first time, publicly backing away from a member of the royal family.



 



To wit: Reuters reports that corporations have pulled their logos from a website for an organization founded by the prince, who is the second son of Queen Elizabeth. Though Andrew's involvement with Epstein has been known for years, as US prosecutors push ahead with investigations into those who were close to the ultra-wealthy pedophile, Andrew's rambling excuses and denials have brought embarrassment and renewed attention.



He has also been accused of showing a "lack of compassion" to Epstein's victims.



So it's hardly surprising that corporations are distancing themselves from Andrew. Hence why the “supporters” page on the website of Andrew’s Pitch@Palace entrepreneurship program, which is intended as a platform to boost the work of entrepreneurs...



[cached version from October]





...was no longer available this week.





Cached versions of the page, from October of this year, showed it carried the logos of brands including KPMG, AstraZeneca, Barclays, Cisco, Standard Chartered and Bosch.





Insurance broker AON confirmed it had also asked Pitch@Palace to remove its logo from the website.



Pitch@Palace didn't immediately return Reuters' request for comment.



KPMG, which was once a "founding partner" of Pitch@Palace, but said it ended its sponsorship on Oct. 31. Several UK media reported the decision was linked to adverse publicity surrounding Andrew at that time. Meanwhile, Standard Chartered said it would not be renewing its sponsorship of Pitch@Palace when it expired at the end of the year.

Royal Family Biographer Defends Prince Andrew: "Soliciting Sex From Minors Is Not Pedophilia"

Royal Family Biographer Defends Prince Andrew: "Soliciting Sex From Minors Is Not Pedophilia"

Authored by John Vibes via TheMindUnleashed.com,



Biographer for the Royal Family, Lady Colin Campbell, recently appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain where she defended Prince Andrew against claims of pedophilia.





In her defense of the disgraced prince, Campbell pointed to the “prostitution

Read More
” charge that Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of in 2008, and attempted to downplay the fact that the girls were underage by suggesting that he was simply hiring sex workers.




“You all seem to have forgotten that Jeffrey Epstein, the offense for which he was charged and for which he was imprisoned, was for soliciting prostitution from minors. That is not the same thing as pedophilia,” Campbell told a shocked panel Monday morning.




Host Piers Morgan immediately challenged her claims, saying:




If you solicited a 14-year-old for prostitution, you’re a pedophile.



You’re procuring an underage girl for sex. That’s what he was convicted of. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, with respect, that is nonsense.”




Campbell then immediately attempted to backpedal, claiming that a distinction must be made between a minor and a child.




“Was he? 14? Well, I’m not justifying Jeffrey Epstein. Pedophilia, I suspect there’s a difference between a minor and a child,” she said.



“A 14-year-old is a child. Legally, she’s a child,” Morgan replied.




Campbell then admitted that the prince may have “made many mistakes,” but insisted that his only mistake was being too clueless to realize that one of his closest friends was a predator.




“You can’t criticize someone because they aren’t as bright as you would like them to be,” she said.






The controversy surrounding Prince Andrew has grown since his Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis. In the interview, the prince gave a variety of bizarre excuses and defenses for the accusations against him, including a claim that he could not sweat due to a rare physical condition.



He also denied knowing about the trafficking victim, Virginia Giuffre—formerly known as Virginia Roberts—despite appearing in photos with her when she was under the age of 18. However, he has previously suggested that these photos are “doctored.” Photographic evidence has been uncovered showing that the prince does, in fact, sweat. He also claimed that even though he did not remember meeting the victim on the night that she said, he does vividly remember his alibi, saying he went to a Pizza Express in Woking before returning home that night.






“Going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me to do, a very unusual thing for me to do. I’ve never been… I’ve only been to Woking a couple of times and I remember it weirdly distinctly,” he said.




The interview was so disastrous for the Royal Family that one of Prince Andrew’s PR advisors quit in response to the broadcast. And to make matters even worse, a video clip from 1984 recently resurfaced showing Johnny Carson, then-host of The Tonight Show, making a joke about Prince Andrew being a pedophile.





None of this looks good for the Royal Family.

Saudi Arabia Can Destroy Iran In 8 Hours, Brags Saudi Prince

zerohedge News saudi arabia destroy iran hours bragssaudi prince All https://www.zerohedge.com   Discuss    Share

Via AlmasdarNews.com,



A Saudi prince posted on Twitter Thursday that Saudi Arabia’s military could destroy Iran in eight hours if they wanted to.



Prince Abdullah bin Sultan bin Nasser Al-Saud tweeted a video on Thursday that showed some of the Gulf kingdom’s F-15 warplanes in comparison to Iran’s F-4 Phantom jets.




In quotations, the prince tweeted: 




“Saudi Arabia can destroy Iran in 8 hours.”




And he further added, “What is hidden is greater. There is no force in the world that can stand up to our unity, our resolve, our renaissance and thank God.”



The Saudi prince cited an earlier report on Saudi Arabia’s military capabilities.



“Iran has no fighter jets that can reach Saudi Arabia,” according to an analyst interviewed on Channel 24 featured in the tweeted video. 


Via The National Interest

Saudi Arabia has for the past years been America's #1 arms purchaser, with up to 70 percent of the kingdom's arsenal now coming from the United States, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).





The analyst added Iran’s air force is outdated and weak, highlighting things like Iran’s old aircraft and limited number of Soviet-era MiG-29 fighter jets.
