Gowdy on Comey since Q Drop 3...
"Saint James Comey," Gowdy, R-S.C., said on "Hannity," gave "pretty much the same as any other interview. He is always right. He gets to write the moral script."
Federal and local authorities seized 333 pounds of coc aine from inside a container shipping container at the Port of Baltimore during a multiagency examination on June 18, one day after the largest coc aine seizure in the history of Customs and Border Protection in Philadelphia.
"Ports America is the largest terminal operator and stevedore in the United States, with operations in more than 42 ports and 80 locations"
"With diversified port operations across all three U.S. coasts, Ports America offers a vast network of interconnected transportation solutions for customers."
Retired Rear Adm. Mark C. Montgomery was censured by Navy Secretary Richard Spencer for his role in the western Pacific’s tawdry web of bribery and kickbacks orchestrated by the portly Leonard Glenn Francis, who steered Navy port service business to his Glenn Defense Marine Asia company.
Fat Leonard’s fraud cost U.S. taxpayers nearly $35 million and triggered federal charges and disciplinary actions against scores of retired and active-duty Navy leaders.
Montgomery’s infractions occurred from 2007 to 2009, while he served as the head of Destroyer Squadron 15, according to the censure letter.
It details several instances of wrongdoing by Montgomery, who was nominated by the White House to direct the U.S. Agency for International Development.
President Donald Trump’s administration withdrew the nomination a few days before the Navy announced Montgomery’s censure.
Reports said these personnel might have violated military law or federal ethic rules in their dealings with Leonard Glenn Francis, a Singapore-based maritime tycoon.
Francis, 53, the owner of Glenn Defense Marine Asia firm, built relationships with a number of member of the U.S. Navy by enticing them with bribes ranging from thousands of dollars in cash, travel expenses and luxury items to prostitutes in order to extract confidential information from Navy personnel.
When 19 tons of coc aine were found on a container ship at the port of Philadelphia three weeks ago, America’s mainstream media, led by the Washington Post and the Associated Press, stood as one and pointed the finger at MSC, Mediterranean Shipping Company, the second largest container shipping line in the world.
They were wrong.
Now they are reporting that JP Morgan is the owner of the container ship and may be getting ready to take the hit.
For the ’Ndrangheta is a branch of the mafia which, having taken control of parts of Italy, is rapidly spreading its tentacles around the world.
f you’re an Italian, you can avoid the organisation only if you give up food, booze, cigarettes, clothes, travel, drugs, porn, betting, share-trading and renting a flat because it has interests in every aspect of daily life.
It also deals in fraud, counterfeiting, theft, gun-running, loan-sharking, kidnapping and people-trafficking.
But it’s the brutality of the ’Ndrangheta that is most shocking – a boss has just been arrested for killing a rival by feeding him alive to hungry pigs.
The 'Ndrangheta mafia from southern Italy made more money last year than Deutsche Bank and McDonald's put together with a turnover of €53bn (£44bn), a study has claimed.
The 'Ndrangheta is thought to have about 400 key "operatives" in 30 countries, but its activities are believed to involve as many as 60,000 people worldwide, the report said.
With its network of hundreds of family gangs based around the southern region of Calabria, it is even more feared and secretive than the Sicilian mafia.
Its roots go back to a criminal association specialised in gambling, the Garduna, which was created in the Spanish city of Toledo in 1412.

No. Q periodically will screenshot or copy an Anon post and simply repost using the Q tripcode authentication. This is saying Q is endorsing/recognizing without signing when he has nothing further to add.
