US Department of Veterans Affairs Discloses Data Breach Impacting Nearly 50,000 Veterans
The personal information of approximately 46,000 US veterans was compromised after unauthorized individuals gained access to a Financial Service Center application, the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disclosed on Monday.
According to a press release, the unauthorized users who gained access to the application managed to change financial information and divert multiple VA payments intended for medical treatments of US veterans.
“A preliminary review indicates these unauthorized users gained access to the application to change financial information and divert payments from VA by using social engineering techniques and exploiting authentication protocols,” the agency said.
VA’s financial department said that the compromised application was taken offline until it passes a complete security review.
“To prevent any future improper access to and modification of information, system access will not be reenabled until a comprehensive security review is completed by the VA Office of Information Technology,” the VA added.
Although the agency took immediate action to mitigate the breach, individuals whose Social Security Numbers may have been compromised are now vulnerable to identity-theft related crimes.
The VA said it would provide free credit monitoring services to affected individuals and will advise additional instructions on how to safeguard personal information.
“To protect these Veterans, the FSC is alerting the affected individuals, including the next-of-kin of those who are deceased, of the potential risk to their personal information,” the statement reads. “The department is also offering access to credit monitoring services, at no cost, to those whose social security numbers may have been compromised.”
The department encourages individuals notified of the data breach to contact the FSC for additional information. “There is no action needed from Veterans if they did not receive an alert by mail, as their personal information was not involved in the incident,” the VA added.
Families need to be aware that Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” movie specials will be very different this year since the network will be including LGBTQ content and characters in its original movies for the first time ever.
For example, The Christmas House, set to air Sunday, November 22, at 8:00 p.m. CST will include a gay couple. The cast features Johnathan Bennett and Brad Harder as gay dads-to-be through adoption.
Hallmark Channel, owned by Crown Media Family Networks, announced its plans to start introducing gay and transgender storylines into its movies after receiving online complaints about the lack of obvious LGBTQ content in its lineup of holiday movies.
Michelle Vicary, executive vice president of programming at Crown Media Family Networks, said in a recent secular interview that the 2020 holiday programming reflects “our most diverse representation of talent, narratives, and families.
“Our holiday table is bigger and more welcoming than ever,” she added in a press release. “Our movies are rooted in warmth and positivity, meaningful connections, family gatherings, and seasonal traditions — a winning formula we hope will bring our millions of viewers much-needed levity and holiday cheer at the end of a tough year.”
So many people feel betrayed by Hallmark, which used to be set apart from other channels because of the wholesome, family-friendly content it aired. However, in less than one year, the network decided not only to air LGBTQ commercials, which One Million Moms petitioned and began to boycott in December 2019, but also to produce and air movies pushing the gay agenda by featuring lead gay characters in homosexual relationships.
The once conservative network has caved to LGBTQ pressure and has done a one-eighty from the wholesome content the channel once aired, and the network is now catering to the Left.
1MM is boycotting all things Hallmark. This includes Hallmark Channel, Hallmark wrapping paper, greeting cards, Christmas ornaments, etc.
Please sign our unique petition stating you will specifically boycott ‘The Christmas House’ movie on November 22 by not watching Hallmark Channel that day and by not purchasing any Hallmark products as long as Hallmark pushes the LGBTQ agenda.Now, please share with your family and friends.
Global Child Sex Abuse network uncovered with ties to US
A tip earlier this year from the United States has led to the uncovering of a major child sex abuse network in Australia with ties to the U.S., Canada, Asia, Europe and New Zealand.
According to The Associated Press, Australian authorities announced Wednesday that 16 men have been arrested in New South Wates, Queensland and Western Australia in recent months on 828 charges of sexually abusing children, producing and distributing child abuse material and bestiality.
Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Justine Gough said that a child care worker and a children’s soccer coach are among those facing charges. Gough added that investigators had identified a total of 46 victims in Australia as young as 16 months and no older than 15 years.
“No child should be subjected to abuse and violence from the people they trust, whether that is a family member, a childcare worker or a soccer coach,” Gough said, according to the AP. “Sadly and heartbreakingly, this has been the case for the victims.”
A total of 18 “matters” have been referred to the U.S., where three men have been arrested in connection to child abuse material, the news service noted.
The investigations resulted from a February tip from the U.S. National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, according to Gough, which warned Australian police that a New South Wales man was uploading child abuse material.
Upon the arrest of a 30-year-old man, authorities reportedly searched his computer, which revealed an online child abuse network with which the man was connected.
Gough said that the pedophile circle used “the regular internet,” as well as the dark web, to connect with each other and share materials.
When contacted by the AP, the Homeland Security Investigations’ representative to Australia, Adam Parks, declined to comment on the three arrests in the United States.
However, he did say there were several ongoing investigations within the country, adding that the child abuse ring was a global network “rooted in Australia.”
This comes as several investigations in recent months have uncovered human trafficking networks across the U.S.
In October, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (R) said that a trafficking probe, called Operation Autumn Hope, resulted in 179 arrests and 109 victims rescued. The effort included more than 50 law enforcement agencies and other organizations as part of a mission to end sex trafficking across the state.
In August, Ohio’s Operation Safety Net led to the rescue of 25 children aged 13 to 18 in just three weeks after its launch, according to the U.S. Marshals Office.
That same month, Operation Not Forgotten in Georgia recovered 39 children aged 3 to 17, with nine people arrested at the time.
Why President Trump’s Crackdown on Human Trafficking Matters to Pro-Life Voters
The Pro-Life Movement is primarily focused on ending abortion in America and giving support to pregnant women who would otherwise be vulnerable to abortion. While it may seem that the matter of human trafficking is a separate cause, in reality, the abortion and the trafficking of women and children are intertwining causes.
Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, wrote last month about Planned Parenthood’s involvement in conducting abortions on women and minors who were sex-trafficked. In that article, Newman quoted from a report published by the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) that stated a shocking statistic.
Out of 768 sex-trafficked women who responded to their survey, nearly 90% (683) had at least one abortion between the ages of 11 and 17. Eighty-eight percent of those 683 women, noted that their abortions had taken place at Planned Parenthood.
While, President Donald J. Trump has done much to take away abortion funding and establish policies that respect and protect innocent life from the moment of conception until natural death, what many may not know is that during President Trump’s first term, there has been a dramatic crackdown on human trafficking within the United States.
Since President Trump’s administration began in January 2017, and through August, 2020, the USA Today reported that the FBI along with Homeland Security Investigations and ICE have made 8,559 criminal arrests related to human trafficking. The number of arrests have increased each year – all of which have outstripped the number of arrests during former President Barack Obama’s last year of office.
Another news story reported that during the Trump Administration, approximately 1,300 missing children have been rescued by the U.S. Marshall’s service through August 2020. And that does not even take into account the adult women who have been rescued.
In October alone, a quick Internet search turned up the following news stories:
October 9, 2020, in Reno, Nevada: A sting conducted by the FBI’s Northern Nevada Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force made 28 arrests. All arrestees “knowingly engage[d] in, and pa[id] for, sex acts with a minor.”
October 26, 2020, in Honolulu, Hawaii: A task force comprised of the FBI, AG’s office, the Honolulu Police Department and other federal, state and county agencies rescued five minor girls, ages 16-17, from sex trafficking. Their investigation into the traffickers continues.
October 26, 2020, in Beaumont, Texas: In a story headlined as a case of “Modern Day Slavery,” a two-day joint operation involving the Beaumont Police Department and the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office netted the arrest of 21 men, half of which believed they were arranging to have sex with minor girls. Shockingly, the Texas Attorney General’s office noted that there are an estimated 79,000 victims of youth and minor sex trafficking in Texas at any given time.
October 27, 2020, throughout Ohio: Federal, state and local law enforcement joined together in “Operation Autumn Hope” which was an impressive statewide crackdown on sex trafficking. In all, 109 human trafficking victims were rescued – 45 of which were minors. The joint task force arrested 179 male traffickers.
October 27, 2020, in Oak Grove, Missouri: Ten women and three under the age of five were discovered in a human trafficking sweep that included state and local law enforcement. Five men were detained. The investigation is ongoing.
Of the 124 women and children rescued from human trafficking rings in these October incidents alone, if 90 percent of them had at least one abortion, in keeping with the abortion rate reported in the AAPLOG study results, that would mean over 110 abortions may have taken place as a result of sex trafficking.
“When human trafficking is stopped, abortions are also prevented,” said Troy Newman. “That makes ending human trafficking a huge issue for pro-life voters. The Trump Administration has done more to address human trafficking than before it, and we are grateful to them for the lives this enormous effort has saved.”
Vice President Mike Pence held a conference call on January 9, 2019, in which he sought support for the border wall. During that call, he told participants, including Operation Rescue staff, that human sex traffickers and other criminals were victimizing women and children by the thousands, and that human trafficking over the U.S./Mexico was, at that time, a two-billion-dollar annual trade.
President Trump’s border wall has contributed to hindering human traffickers who were pouring over the U.S. Border with Mexico before he took office. Trump announced over the weekend that 400 miles of border wall have so far been completed, making the border safer than it has ever been.
“Trump’s heroic crackdown on human trafficking has saved lives and spared women and children torment at the hands of their traffickers. We support his efforts to protect the innocent – from the unborn to adults – from exploitation, abuse, and death,” said Newman. “For the pro-life supporter, Trump has more than earned our votes. The pro-abortion Biden-Harris ticket, wants to re-open our borders to illegal crossers, and that will surely include human traffickers. That, along for their radical support for abortion, disqualifies Biden and Harris from receiving our votes. I look forward to a second pro-life Trump term.”
