Trumps ‘leaked’ 2005 Tax form 1040 – What you need to know.

If it looks like a turd, smells like a turd… it’s a turd. NOTE : This post has updates at the bottom. Well, well, well. Why do the craziest things keep happening regarding issues surrounding Donald Trump, just at the right time? Take for example the latest stunning revelation, his ‘leaked’ 2005 1040 tax form. Well I’ve got a few thoughts on this, but first I’ll present you with some non-alternative facts. Sometime in recent days Donald Trumps 1040 form (partial) appeared in Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and tax expert David Cay Johnston’s snail-mailbox at his home address. Here’s what he received: It’s worth noting this document does NOT include Trumps 2005 schedule – which would show exactly where he’s getting money from,...

Russian Infiltration of the US Federal Government

NOTE: THIS POST HAS UPDATES AT BOTTOM For the next thirty seconds, I want you to disregard all political affiliation and ponder this; How many ‘coincidences’ does it take to make a fact? In the first week of December Sergei Mikhailov, the head of the Russian FSB cyber unit was in a meeting, when men came in, put a black bag over his head, and dragged him out. He hasn’t been seen since. And now he’s been charged with Treason, presumably for giving information to the United States of America. He’ll face a secret military tribunal and nobody will ever know what happens to him. Shortly thereafter Ruslan Stoyanov, head Russian FSB counterintelligence whose job it would have been to find spies, was also arrested as a traitor. In the last week of December, an ex-KGB ...

In Soviet Russia, We Get Out-Propagandered By A Guy in a Jingly Hat

NOTE: This post has multiple updates at the bottom. So my mom called last night and asked me “How’s things, anything interesting going on with you?” I replied, “Ahh you know nothing much. Plodding along”. She has no idea I even have a blog, and if I told her she wouldn’t have a clue what I was jabbering about anyhow. Last Friday evening, I decided to give Russia a little gentle prod. Nothing too spectacular,  just a message that all their meddling in US affairs, up to and including their salvos in Cyber against US targets wasn’t going unnoticed. It’s a dirty job, but someones gotta do it. My ‘message’ came in the form of a simple XSS injection, made possible by a vulnerability in the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. Th...

He knows he’s not crazy because that’s what the voices say

THIS POST HAS BEEN UPDATED AT THE BOTTOM So there’s been a modicum of drama on my Twitter timeline in the last couple of days. Allow me to fill you in. While I try not to give trolls, crazies and stalkers any air-time here, I truly believe some feel it is a ‘badge of honor’ or some shit. But in the worst cases I feel it’s my civic duty to try and ‘direct help’ their way. And also try and direct ‘normal’ people out of their way. So here’s the thing. Often people engage me in DM’s, often it’s just fine. But sometimes it’s not. Sometimes people unload and vomit all their problems and deep seated issues to me. I tend to answer rarely, and when I do, keep it short, not wishing to fan the flame. But I’m always polite, ...

Twitter Can Fix Twitter With Just a Few Lines of Code

Hey friends, heads up – I provide links in this post. They provide context. I stumbled across a really interesting article by Charlie Warzel over on Buzzfeed this morning. It was titled “A Honeypot For Assholes”: Inside Twitters 10-Year Failure to Stop Harassment. One of the key things noted in the article – for me anyway – was the following “If Twitter had people in the room who’d been abused on the internet when they were creating the company, I can assure you the service would be different”. That’s something I totally get as someone who’s been targeted, harassed, and abused by Twitter troll accounts endlessly for many years, some of them the same sad individuals persistently, no, relentlessly for nearly seven years and counting...

GUEST POST by Kronykal Jones: The ‘Internet of Feels’

Let’s talk about emotions. Now I know what you’re thinking. Kron?! Wtf?? Yes, it’s me, and I want to talk about feelings. We’re all on social media and before you engage further, gather round, sit your ass down and listen up. I’ll wait while you have a shot of your favorite poison. We good? Ok. Then let’s do it. Feelings are important. They truly are. They’re the basis of empathy, which is extremely important, and often lacking, in our society. Without empathy, compassion wouldn’t exist. Hope… Love… Kindness… All of these things require empathy. Feelings. I’ve been told on more than one occasion that I’m dead inside. I’m heartless… A robot… Those closer to me know that’s not so. It’s true ...

What US Social Media Is Doing and What US Social Media Should be Doing

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ~ Edmund Burke . Look up. Read that Edmund Burke quote. Again. I’ve been saying for nearly SEVEN YEARS, and documenting here on my site how jihadis have been radicalizing and recruiting foreign fighters and more importantly ‘lone wolf attackers’ online. Back then they were using their own privately hosted servers in Europe (Belgium, Russia, Sweden) and the Middle East (Doha, Qatar). I was watching this happen 7 years ago and decided to take my own ‘offensive cyber countermeasures’ with a view to disrupting and destabilizing their infrastructure, servers, and even their trust relationships with service providers in an attempt to push them off their own platforms and fu...

How to Win a ‘Cyberwar’ with ISIS.

“Never interrupt the enemy while he’s making a mistake’ ~ Napoleon I’m gonna start with one simple sentence: We have the upper hand here. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it, but make no mistake WE HAVE THE ADVANTAGE, just as long as we don’t squander it. Here’s why: Nearly 6 years ago, as many of you know I started taking down jihadist recruiting, propaganda websites and forums. At that time they were often self-hosted servers, or offshore hosting providers, they were not prevalent on US social media like they are today. Most of the targets I chose were hosted overseas. My strategy then was really simple. I was trying to make it as difficult as possible for the bad guys to trust and maintain their own servers, and lines of communication. I figured I...

Public Service Announcement: Media folks, ‘Anonymous’ are Suckering You.

“The problem with ‘Anonymous’ quotes from the internet is you can never tell if they are true or not” ~ Abraham Lincoln NOTE: THERE ARE UPDATES AT THE BOTTOM. Pointing out the obvious is getting really tedious. But, in the absence of anyone else doing it, and with the new rash of crap coming from their cheeto-stained lips, combined with the fact that *some* media are actually buying into their rhetoric and bluster it’s only fair that there’s a counter-balance provided. After all we’re all about ‘freedom of speech’, right? Yesterday ‘Anonymous’ came out with yet another of their oh-so-scary videos ‘declaring war on ISIS‘. I about fell of my perch laughing. Yes, it’s the EXACT same tired old footage of a pre-...

Sincerest Form of Flattery? Well, I Guess So.

“It’s better to fail in originality than succeed in imitation.” Melville Let’s talk a little bit about motivation. I’ll start with my own. Nearly six years ago I noticed (before they invaded social media) that Jihadists were leveraging the internet via forums hosted by themselves on their own servers, to radicalize & recruit a homegrown threat. This got under my skin and I wanted to do what I could to disrupt their activities. That was my motivation, I was pretty successful, nobody had previously gone down this path. How cute, another imitator. While some of my actions over the years have generated some media interest, this was never my primary goal. As I keep saying ‘fame is lightning, you can no more seek it out than you can avoid it’, and I ...

CIA Director Brennan AOL ‘Hack’ – What You Need To Know

“If you shake a tree with dumbasses in it, don’t be surprised when dumbasses fall out” ~ Me Let’s get to it. The So-Called ‘Hack’ Recently media reported that CIA Director John Brennan’s PRIVATE AOL (I know right?) email had been ‘hacked’. This is a misconception. The account was not ‘hacked’ it was Social Engineered. Social Engineering basically means you are really good at being full of shit. You lie to people to solicit information from them, either by phone or email. In this case the perps fooled a Verizon employee (who are Director Brennan’s cell provider) into giving them what were essentially security question details – in this case the last 4 digits of his Credit Card among other things, and they used thi...

Guest Post By Branndon ‘ShadowDXS’ Pike

“Be humble, be gracious, and make peace with inner fears before stepping out into the limelight and allowing yourself to be subjected to all of humanity”. ~ Maximillian Degenerez Funny how things work out. I never thought I’d see this day, and I never thought I’d let a guest write a blog post. Here’s a very much shortened backstory as to why. I get trolled by losers. A lot. One of the worst persistent offenders over the years has been Branndon Pike AKA @ShadowDXS on Twitter, here’s an example of his ‘work’. Recently though, I’d noticed a huge change in him. I asked around, and some good people, @NetSecrex (Dan Ford) and @Sehnaoui (Khalil ‘Pilgrim’) informed me that Branndon was trying to get his shit together and had finally...
