  • Letters of Marque and Reprisal, hacktivist version

    Arms and the Law (blog) ^ | 26 July 2021 | David Hardy
    My friend suggested an imaginative use of letters of marque and reprisal, as authorized by the Constitution. These were the basis of privateering, perhaps the ultimate in privatization. The government would authorize the captain of a civilian vessel to seize enemy shipping, and sell it for his own profit. The letters ensured that if he was captured, he would be treated as a POW rather than as a pirate. A factor in ending the War of 1812 was that, while the US Navy was far too small to have an impact, American privateers (far outnumbering the Royal Navy) were inflicting...
  • John McAfee on life in prison… and the price of Dogecoin

    04/29/2021 12:56:33 PM PDT · by algore · 21 replies
    Incarcerated computer legend John McAfee says he’s stunned by the price of Dogecoin. Speaking from behind bars in a Spanish jail after being banged up on charges of cryptocurrency fraud and tax evasion, the 75-year-old was apparently shocked to hear the crypto hailed by Elon Musk and Snoop Dogg was now changing hands for as much as 30 cents a unit. “There are a few inmates that speak English well enough for John to have conversations with so that has helped him to not feel so isolated,” she said. McAfee hinted earlier this year that it was his involvement with...
  • Democrats’ Operative Got Secret Internet Connection at Wisconsin Election Center where the Ballots were Counted, Emails Show

    A veteran Democratic operative intricately involved in Green Bay’s November election was given access to “hidden” identifiers for the internet network at the hotel convention center where ballots were counted, according to emails obtained by Wisconsin Spotlight. Green Bay city officials insist the presidential election was “administered exclusively by city staff.” But the emails show that Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein, Wisconsin state lead for the National Vote at Home Institute, had a troubling amount of contact with election administration Nov. 4. “I’ll have my team create two separate SSID’s for you,” Trent Jameson, director of event technology at Green Bay’s Hyatt Regency...

    It is rare when a political action can be legitimately labeled seditious and treasonous at the same time. If you ever wondered why the Durham investigation was last seen on the back of a milk carton and why no one involved in thee Russian collusion hoax and the deep state coup to depose the duly elected President Donald J. Trump has been indicted, consider the actions of William Barr, whom Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro, speaking on Maria Bartiromo’s Sunday Morning Futures show on Fox News, dubbed Trump’s last attorney general and Biden’s first. At the end of Trump’s first...
  • General McInerney calls for President Trump to declare martial law and investigation of treason

    Worldview Weekend has released another bombshell interview with retired 3-star General Thomas McInerney. In the interview, Gen. McInerney publicly calls on President Trump to realize the seriousness of the cyber-war attack on America by invoking the Rebellion Act, removing Habeas Corpus (as Lincoln did) and initiating mass arrests under military authority. This call by Gen. McInerney, a highly accomplished military veteran and loyal patriot, seems to stem from the realization that much of the existing government has gone astray and is now colluding with the enemies of the nation. State governors have gone villains, court judges have gone villains, and...

    A devastating cyberattack on US government agencies has also hit targets worldwide, with the list of victims still growing, according to researchers, heightening fears over computer security and espionage.Microsoft said late Thursday that it had notified more than 40 customers hit by the malware, which security experts say came from hackers linked to the Russian government and which could allow attackers unfettered network access."While roughly 80 percent of these customers are located in the United States, this work so far has also identified victims in seven additional countries," Microsoft president Brad Smith said in a blog post.Smith said the victims...

    The scale of a sophisticated cyberattack on the U.S. government that was unearthed this week is much bigger than first anticipated. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said in a summary Thursday that the threat “poses a grave risk to the federal government.” It added that “state, local, tribal, and territorial governments as well as critical infrastructure entities and other private sector organizations” are also at risk. CISA believes the attack began at least as early as March. Since then, multiple government agencies have reportedly been targeted by the hackers, with confirmation from the Energy and Commerce departments so far.

    WASHINGTON — Over the past few years, the U.S. government has spent tens of billions of dollars on cyberoffensive abilities, building a giant war room at Fort Meade, Maryland, for U.S. Cyber Command, while installing defensive sensors all around the country — a system named Einstein to give it an air of genius — to deter the nation’s enemies from picking its networks clean, again.

She never blinked and held a stern, a serious face when she said it. She wasn’t joking and now we know why!

    A team of election security experts used a “Google for servers” to challenge claims that voting machines do not connect to the internet and found some did. It was an assurance designed to bolster public confidence in the way America votes: Voting machines “are not connected to the internet.” Then Acting Undersecretary for Cybersecurity and Communications at the Department of Homeland Security Jeanette Manfra said those words in 2017, testifying before Congress while she was responsible for the security of the nation’s voting system. So many government officials like Manfra have said the same thing over the last few years...

    ORIGINAL: The Michigan State Republican Party on Friday revealed that a software glitch caused 6,000 Republican ballots to be counted toward Democrat's totals. The issue was eventually corrected when officials in Antrim County hand-counted the ballots, which caused their county to flip to President Donald Trump. According to the Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman, 48 of the state's 83 counties use the same software from Dominion Voting Systems. There are now issues arising in Georgia in Spalding and Morgan Counties after it was revealed that a software update Monday night caused voting machines to crash on Election Day.
