Witches Of Moonlight Falls (Season 4): Part 33}

- New Target -

Black Widow was patching through to a fellow comrade, a KGB operative. She had hacked into the intelligence database and her file had finished uploading, her next target had been revealed. She is yet to find out what he has in common with the Crumplebottom sisters, that information seems to be classified. 

Black Widow: “Who is he? Why is he so important that his death must come before the sisters? I can’t keep changing objectives, I’ve already got enemies out there after me, worry not! The Black Widow can handle anything!”

KGB Operative: “His name is Ivanov Rasputin, he is very dangerous. Don’t take him lightly. He’ll be at Waylon’s strip club tonight. You’ll go undercover as a worker there and assassinate him silently. No attention should be attracted at all. Understood? By all means poison his drink or use your signature gadget… Deadly lipstick.”

Black Widow opens her weaponry draw… She only has two weapons, she’s not ready for a new mission. Ammunition is desperately needed. One knife and one pistol is not enough, she’ll have to get creative. She still has her electric bracelets and poisonous lipstick so maybe she’ll have to use beauty as her weapon tonight.

Black Widow looks into the face of her new target, the man she has to kill… It’s not the first time she’ll have blood on her hands. Buy why him? The witches were so close to her and she failed to kill them. Black Widow then realises that her mission change could have something to do with entering this alternate reality.

Black Widow: “OK, I’ll update you when I get to the strip club, I hate going undercover as as stripper, ugh!”

Just when Natalia thought she’d have time to relax with some coffee before she prepped for her mission….

         …She hears a helicopter outside!

- Widow Ambush! -

Hacking into the computer on the intelligence database may have triggered Natalia’s location! She’s highly wanted by many organisations. Hopefully no more than a helicopter full of amateur spies comes her way. She has a bounty on her head! Has she been double crossed? The KGB could’ve warned her that using that code would expose her as a spy!

The helicopter wasn’t landing, agents were coming to kill her! She had to act fast, not as her cover but as the Black Widow! “Damn it.” She said as she saw men dangerous men lining out the helicopter and landing on her high rise apartment balcony. She was low ammunition, in fact she didn’t really have any combat resources. She’s going to have to take them down without a gun, that’ll be hard.

Who the hell are they? Who sent them?

They think they can kill the infamous Black Widow? Legends die hard. Black Widow may be on many people’s hit lists but she’s talented at surviving. Master at hand to hand combat, dodging and an official escape artists, she’s the worlds greatest spy. They send two agents to take her down? Pathetic! She’ll kill them with ease.  

Unidentified Agent: “Landing, approaching hot zone.”

Unidentified Agent 2: “We have a visual on target. Elimination in progress.”

Black Widow: “Oh really? We’ll see about that!” she said smirking at them through the window.

The only thing between Black Widow and these ‘agents’ was the large glass windows, and without a gun or any weapon all she has is her poisonous lipstick, a pistol that won’t survive another reload and a knife! Not good! Natalia is already on a loosing streak… Then again… She is the Black Widow!

The agents take aim at her, she has to take them out, and fast. She has many options. She could throw the knife, use the last of the pistol bullets wisely or get creative. Y’know Falling from a top of a skyscraper is a pretty horrible death but it’s quick and saves time.

*BLAM BLAM BLAM* 💥🔫

She moves swiftly as shots are fired, one wrong move and she’s dead.

The Types as Assassins/ Spies

ENFP: They’re the type you least expect. This makes them particularly lethal. Their use of Ne-Fi gives them a multi-angle perspective on any situation and Fi will help them resist emotional manipulation. However since they are a feeling type, they would probably use poison since it’s more indirect.

INFP: A little quiet, a little offbeat, and very charming. Rely on manipulation to infiltrate the system before deploying a knockout gas and stealing the information. Only kills the witnesses. 

ENFJ: Probably a leader in their organization, they get in with the powerhouses of the organizations they need to take over and call in someone else to do the dirty work. 

INFJ: Unique and mysterious, they would probably take the job for the fascinating opportunity. They might want someone with them at first to show them the ropes and impress them later with a silently brilliant plan.

ESTP: Go big or go home. ESTPs are the most likely to go with a 007 approach. Fancy suits, gorgeous dresses. Sensual, stealthy, with just a touch of cliché. Would probably use simple double pistols or something that makes a statement like a flame thrower.

ISTP: More likely to be a hit man than an assassin, purely because they work alone. Just because they don’t have a fancy headquarters doesn’t mean that they don’t take their job seriously. As long as they don’t let their temper get the best of them, their mission is almost guaranteed to be a success. 

ESTJ: Their team will be like puppets dangling from their fingers. They take their job seriously, as well as their role in it. It’s all business to them, but it’s a successful one.

ISTJ: They don’t mess around. They may have the tact of a squirrel that was hit by a car, but who needs words when you’re skillfully avoiding all contact with the people you’re about to annihilate? Would most likely use something detached and quick like a turret.

ESFP: They would be on the front end of the cool technology you see, but only if it matches their outfit. ESFPs make up the femme fatales and tall-dark-handsomes of plenty of spy movies. 

ISFP: A bit more quiet than the ESFP, but that gives them a mysterious touch that they use to their advantage. They probably use a weapon you’ve never seen and never will (and live to tell about it.)

ESFJ: It’s hard not to trust them, and they can be much more intelligent than they show off. Once you underestimate them they’ll show their potential as your worst nightmare. M-16s are a likely choice of weapon.

ISFJ: Similar to the ESFJ, ISFJs aren’t really the assassin “type.” That means when they do choose that path, they’re determined to prove themselves. Look. Out. Probably use a semi-automatic weapon of sorts.

ENTP: Simultaneously the operations and technology specialist, ENTPs are a great option for getting rid of who you need gone. Their creativity can get them out of sticky situations they may find themselves in and their charm can get them into the deepest secrets of their victims. Would use something fun like katana blades or throwing knives.

INTP: They make quick work of their missions, but they explore the possibilities to get something out of it. Quick to get inside their victim’s mind, they may leave with more than just a success sticker. Would probably use a machine gun or sword.

ENTJ: Definitely the organization type, they probably lead their headquarters. They pick the juiciest missions for themselves and are quite secretive about how they always get off without a scratch. Poison and daggers are their weapons of choice.

INTJ: They’re strategic masterminds when it comes to getting in and getting out with maximum efficiency and effectiveness. Probably use a revolver.

The Greatest Itching Powder Prank in History

During World War II British intelligence and Secret Services were probably the best at spying and clandestine warfare in all of history.  Almost every major Allied operation had a good amount of deception and trickery which made the Germans chase their own tails on a number of occasions.  Often, their operations depended on advanced technology, a complicated network of spies and double agents, and a great amount of luck.  However, some British spy operations seemed less like James Bond missions and more like childhood mischief.

During the war, the British SOE (Special Operations Executive) began a program to smuggle itching powder into the Third Reich.  The itching powder developed by SOE was no common joke shop itching powder, but a powder so potent that exposure could be excruciating, with some needing hospitalization if exposed.  The itching powder was smuggled into Germany from Switzerland in foot powder tins, where resistance groups working as laundresses and clothiers sprinkled the powder on military uniforms.  The hardest hit was the German Kriegsmarine (navy), when in October of 1943 25,000 U-Boat crew uniforms were contaminated with the itching powder.  What resulted was a massive epidemic of severe dermatitis that swept through the U-Boat fleet.  The epidemic was so bad that one U-Boat crew had to turn around and return to port for medical treatment. 

German uniforms were not the only target for itching powder attacks.  Other targets included bedding, underwear, and toilet paper.  When a sizable amount of itching powder was smuggled into Norway, the Norwegian resistance made especially effective use of it by sprinkling the powder in condoms.  As a result in Trondheim throughout the war numerous cases of German soldiers being hospitalized for extreme pain from their private parts were reported.

MALL OF AMERICA SECURITY CATFISHED BLACK LIVES MATTER ACTIVISTS, DOCUMENTS SHOW

(by Lee Fang || @lhfang)

Documents obtained by The Intercept indicate that security staff at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota used a fake Facebook account to monitor local Black Lives Matter organizers, befriend them, and obtain their personal information and photographs without their knowledge.

Evidence of the fake Facebook account was found in a cache of files provided by the Mall of America to Bloomington officials after a large Black Lives Matter event at the mall on December 20 protesting police brutality. The files included briefs on individual organizers, with screenshots that suggest that much of the information was captured using a Facebook account for a person named “Nikki Larson.”

Metadata from some of the documents lists the software that created them as belonging to “Sam Root” at the “Mall of America.” A Facebook account for a Sam Root lists his profession as “Intelligence Analyst at Mall of America.”

The fake Larson account featured a profile photo that a Google reverse image search shows is identical to a photo associated with a woman who is Facebook friends with Root.

The account, previously found at this url, was deleted soon after The Intercept contacted the Mall of America for this story.

On December 11, as news of the planned Black Lives Matter protest began to spread, the “Nikki Larson” account was updated with a banner image of an (apocryphal) Martin Luther King Jr. quote: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” At some point, the Larson account “liked” the Black Lives Matter Minneapolis Facebook group.

After the December 20 protest, the city charged 11 protesters with six different criminal misdemeanors. The city and mall are seeking over $65,000 in restitution for police and mall expenses.

Information collected from Facebook was used by the Mall of America security team to build dossiers on each activist. A document on Nekima Levy-Pounds, one of the activists charged by the city, includes screen grabs of  her Facebook account. Levy-Pounds, professor of law at the University of St. Thomas, told The Intercept that the Larson account befriended her in December.

Another dossier profiling activist Lena Gardner contains pictures, a timeline listing where to spot her in videos from the protest taken by protestors and by Mall of America security, as well as information scraped from her social media accounts. Similar documents were created for at least eight other activists.

The Larson account appears to have been created in 2009, and had 817 friends, many of whose pages showed they were involved in Minnesota political activism. The account also “liked” Facebook groups associated with Ferguson activists, the American Indian Movement Interpretive Center, Occupy Minneapolis, SumOfUs, the SEIU Minnesota State Council, and Communities United Against Police Brutality, among others.

The Bulgarian Umbrella Gun,

Created by the Bulgarian Secret Service with the help of the KGB, the Bulgarian umbrella was a pneumatic gun hidden within an umbrella.  When fired compressed gas would shoot a small pellet about the size of a pinhead.  While on its own such a weapon would not seem deadly, all that was need was for the pellet to pierce the skin, as it contained small amounts of the toxin ricin.  Ricin is an extremely potent toxin which even in tiny amounts can kill a person within days.

On September 7th, 1978 the Bulgarian dissident writer Georgi Markov was waiting for a bus in London when he felt a sharp sting on the back of his thigh.  When he looked behind him, he saw a man with an umbrella, who quickly ran away and drove away in a taxi.  Later that day, Markov fell ill and had to be rushed to the hospital.  He recounted the events with the umbrella man, and expressed that he believed he was poisoned.  Three days later he was dead.  An autopsy found a 1.7mm diameter pellet in his thigh which held minute amounts of ricin.  Cause of death was officially noted as assassination by poisoning.
