Hacker Archives Every Deleted Parler Post -“Very Incriminating” UPDATE

UPDATE: FAR WORSE THAN WE THOUGHT:

By Monday, rumors were circulating on Reddit and across social media that the mass disemboweling of Parler’s data had been carried out by exploiting a security vulnerability in the site’s two-factor authentication that allowed hackers to create “millions of accounts” with administrator privileges. The truth was far simpler: Parler lacked the most basic security measures that would have prevented the automated scraping of the site’s data. It even ordered its posts by number in the site’s URLs, so that anyone could have easily, programmatically downloaded the site’s millions of posts.

Parler’s cardinal security sin is known as an insecure direct object reference, says Kenneth White, codirector of the Open Crypto Audit Project, who looked at the code of the download tool @donk_enby posted online. An IDOR occurs when a hacker can simply guess the pattern an application uses to refer to its stored data. In this case, the posts on Parler were simply listed in chronological order: Increase a value in a Parler post url by one, and you’d get the next post that appeared on the site. Parler also doesn’t require authentication to view public posts and doesn’t use any sort of “rate limiting” that would cut off anyone accessing too many posts too quickly. Together with the IDOR issue, that meant that any hacker could write a simple script to reach out to Parler’s web server and enumerate and download every message, photo, and video in the order they were posted.

‘It’s just a straight sequence, which is mind-numbing to me,” says White. “This is like a Computer Science 101 bad homework assignment, the kind of stuff that you would do when you’re first learning how web servers work. I wouldn’t even call it a rookie mistake because, as a professional, you would never write something like this.”

We thought that by wandering over to Parler we could breathe easy with our comments.  After all we thought we would not be censored for the most part and it appeared it was going to be live and let live. No data mining. (Chuckle time)

We are in for a nasty shock.

We could fire off a comment feeling free as a twitter bird.. well a bird then. Sort of like the early days of E-Mail.

Now we find that all of our comments and videos are identifiable to us, most including our location, have been harvested from Parler.

BACK TO THE STORY:

Want to know how it works?:

“I want this to be a big middle finger to those who say hacking shouldn’t be political,” said @donk_enby, whose efforts are documented at ArchiveTeam.org. She says that the data will eventually be hosted by the Internet Archive.

Our concern with Parler should have started in November

@donk_enby told Gizmodo that she began digging into Parler after the company issued denials about an email leak unearthed by the hacktivist Kirtner, who has been credited with founding the hacker group Anonymous. @donk_enby said she was able to independently locate the same material herself at the time.

Kirtner, creator of 420chan — a.k.a. Aubrey Cottle — reported obtaining 6.3 GB of Parler user data from an unsecured AWS server in November. The leak reportedly contained passwords, photos and email addresses from several other companies as well. Parler CEO John Matze later claimed to Business Insider that the data contained only “public information” about users, which had been improperly stored by an email vendor whose contract was subsequently terminated over the leak. (This leak is separate from the debunked claim that Parler was “hacked” in late November, proof of which was determined to be fake.) –Gizmodo

Following last week’s incursion into the US Capitol building by Trump supporters and the founder of a BLM group, a researcher who goes by the Twitter handle @donk_enby got to work archiving every post from that day made on Parler – a conservative alternative to Twitter where many claim the protesters coordinated leading up to the incident which left five people dead. Enby calls the evidence “very incriminating.”

Then, after Amazon announced that they were going kill conservative Twitter rival Parler, @donk_enby began archiving posts prior to the 6th, ultimately preserving approximately 99.9% of its content, according to Gizmodo.

Hoping to create a lasting public record for future researchers to sift through, @donk_enby began by archiving the posts from that day. The scope of the project quickly broadened, however, as it became increasingly clear that Parler was on borrowed time. Apple and Google announced that Parler would be removed from their app stores because it had failed to properly moderate posts that encouraged violence and crime. The final nail in the coffin came Saturday when Amazon announced it was pulling Parler’s plug. –Gizmodo

Included in the data harvest is “original, unprocessed, raw files uploaded to Parler with all associated metadata.

As Gizmodo notes, aside from obvious privacy implications, the archived data may serve as a “fertile hunting ground for law enforcement,” after dozens of suspects have been arrested in recent days following last week’s incident.

Of course, the data can also be used to help doxx conservatives by cancel-crusaders on the left, who go to great lengths to ruin the lives of their ideological opponents.

Before we go and sign up at the next social media upstart “Let the Buyer Beware!”

After all we would follow Trump into the fires of hell. Most of us were spared with the worse of this one.

I for one do not want to hear anymore from Parler and their spokes people. What you allowed to happen is far worse than any data mining. What say you?

Everything super fine in the swamp….. would someone ask Parler about this breech?

Will the government internet ‘kill switch’ going to be used?

 

 

At 3pm ET on June 2, 2019 it appears that Google Cloud (affecting Gmail, YouTube, SnapChat, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook among others) mysteriously (and almost unprecedently) went offline. Was this the trial run?

This brought to mind Obama’s Executive Order just in case you think this is a tin foil hat thing. Congress had big plans too.

Incident began at 2019-06-02 12:25 (all times are US/Pacific).

Jun 02, 20 12:25 We are investigating an issue with Google Compute Engine. We will provide more information by Sunday, 2019-06-02 12:45 US/Pacific.

One Google insider explains (via YCombinator):

I work on Google Cloud (but disclaimer, I’m on vacation and so not much use to you!).

We’re having what appears to be a serious networking outage. It’s disrupting everything, including unfortunately the tooling we usually use to communicate across the company about outages.

There are backup plans, of course, but I wanted to at least come here to say: you’re not crazy, nothing is lost (to those concerns downthread), but there is serious packet loss at the least. You’ll have to wait for someone actually involved in the incident to say more.

The internet is having a very bad day… Zero Hedge  and more of the details and a tip of the hat.

 

 

 

If you think this couldn’t happen, check back at what Obama and Congress had in mind a few years ago.

Presidential powers over the Internet and telecommunications were laid out in a U.S. Senate bill in 2009, which proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet. But that legislation was not included in the Cybersecurity Act of 2012. I caught some discussion of this at the time, and the rationale was that  “misinformation” may need to be curtailed. Where did I hear that before? Anyone still wondering where we are headed with this? Think the Dems won’t try this again?

President Obama signed an executive order the week of July 12, 2012 that could give him control over the web in times of emergency.

According to The Verge, critics of the order are concerned with Section 5.2, which is a lengthy part outlining how telecommunications and the Internet are controlled. It states that the Secretary of Homeland Security will “oversee the development, testing, implementation, and sustainment” of national security and emergency preparedness measures on all systems, including private “non-military communications networks.” According to The Verge, critics say this gives Obama the on/off switch to the Web.

The order, known as the, “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions,” exists to hand over full control of communications and the internet to certain government authorities in times of natural disaster and security emergencies.

The wording for the executive order is of course lengthy and uses politician language, but the part worth pointing out is in section 5.2. It is in this section that the order states that Homeland Security will be able to monitor and control all non-military forms of communications in times of extreme measures, which is essentially giving the White House the on/off switch to the internet, according to some critics.

You can read more about the executive order, which still at the time still had 30 days before it became a law, over at CNET and The Verge. If you want to check out the order in its entirety, go to the White House press page.

Bonus:

Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness

In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is. It’s peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it’s for “Preparedness”.

Quote:

Sec. 201. Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a) The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:(1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;(2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;(3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;(4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;(5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and(6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials

Gov DeSantis takes down a CNN reporter in brutal fashion

 

I will admit that this past week I have been trying to avoid much of the news. I am just sitting back holding my breath on Georgia and D.C.  Fox news has dwindled in my estimation and News Max… what can I say. But a good take down of a CNN reporter is worthy of recognition. I was looking for a feel good post…  Love this guy DeSantis.  But Florida rocks other than the hurricanes…. enjoy.

 

Have a great day…

Porkulus extravaganza – Pet projects in $900 billion stimulus bill

We already know about the $600 checks for each adult and dependent. If you make less than $75K. This time, however, ‘mixed-status’ households where eligible citizens live with illegal immigrants, will not only receive payments – they can retroactively claim benefits after being left out of the last round.

Pork that is unimaginable. Wander over to Zero Hedge for the obscenity. Yet how about us poor working stiffs? Not much… but a special package for illegals.

Pork City:The Most Ridiculous Pet Projects In $900 Billion Stimulus Package

And now, on to the pork… which includes billions to foreign countries, US military weapons purchases which go above and beyond their budgets, $40 million for the Kennedy Center, and nearly $200 million so that federal HIV/AIDS workers overseas can buy cars and car insurance, among other things. Lots of foreign aid. Also included is $453 million to Ukraine, on top of the $400 million Trump eventually released. No word on how much of that goes to the ‘big guy.

The SolarWinds Orion Data Breach – a Silent Agenda by Foreign Actors UPDATE

How huge this breech is/was we will never know on our end. Enough to know that it is big. Worth attention that it is not getting with all of the election news:

Solarwinds related to Obama Clintons China Hong Kong election process:

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/12/breaking-exclusive-owners-solarwinds-related-obama-clintons-china-hong-kong-us-election-process/

The Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) also dispatched a warning, and further reporting on the issue pointed out the intrusion itself took place in May of 2020 and the malware was constructed to disguise itself within the SolarWinds’ system.

A cyber security firm, FireEye, found the intrusion door, identified the source code and tracked it to SolarWinds.  FireEye then notified law enforcement and federal agencies who then began reviewing the breach:

WASHINGTON – The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) tonight issued Emergency Directive 21-01, in response to a known compromise involving SolarWinds Orion products that are currently being exploited by malicious actors. This Emergency Directive calls on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.

….

FireEye’s investigation revealed that the hack on itself was part of a global campaign by a highly sophisticated hacker that also targeted “government, consulting, technology, telecom and extractive entities in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East,” the company said in a blog post Sunday night. “We anticipate there are additional victims in other countries and verticals.” (more)

SolarWinds’ has a massive client list including all the sensitive government agencies and most of the top Fortune 500 companies.  There have been reports that executives at SolarWinds are being reviewed for making stock transactions prior to public notification of the cyber hack.

Melinda Gates Is ‘Incredibly Disappointed’ That Americans Will Get the Vaccine First

Billionaire globalist Melinda Gates is “incredibly disappointed” that President Trump has put Americans first in line to receive the Wuhan coronavirus vaccine.

Melinda Gates believes the senile old fool Biden will end the dark months of Trump. Gates said she was looking forward to Joe Biden becoming president and bringing his “global leadership” to the White House before warning of “dark months” to come while Trump remains in office. Yes, welcome globalists to a Biden administration.

Well folks…..guess who paid for this vaccine with billions of buckeroos?

Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, told CNN’s Poppy Harlow that it’s America’s and other high-income countries’ responsibility to make sure impoverished nations get access to the vaccine just as quickly as everyone else.

“Everybody needs this vaccine,” complained Gates. “If we only get it to the high-income countries, this disease is going to bounce around. We’re going to see twice as many deaths. And our recovery of our economies is going to be much slower than if we get the vaccine out to everybody.”

The only thing consistent with these globalists is they always want America to come last.

“I just knew it was coming and I was just incredibly disappointed,” Gates said about Trump’s America First executive order.

Sounds about right for Biden. He went to Europe and called America an embarrasment.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

China says ‘has people at the top of America’s core inner circle of power & influence’

We learn that China looks forward to a Biden administration and not having to deal with Trump. Says it all doesn’t it? Tucker includes a tape from the Chinese.

With any luck the Bidens should be charged with treason with his son. John Kerry should be asked about how is son is doing as well.

No surprise but of course this all comes out after the election.

Look what’s coming back to the White House – our savant John Kerry

(It’s on a loop)

Here is a refresher from an earlier post:

Joe Biden: ‘China not bad folks, not competition to us’

Of course let us not forget Biden in February before announcing his candidacy did the bend over thing in Europe.

Joe Biden goes to Europe and blasts America – Calls the U.S. an ’embarrassment’

Speaking to European allies, Biden trashed America with an open hostility.

“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” Biden asserted.

“The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”

Speak for yourself Joe.

Here is more from the Chinese professor for those who have the stomach for it.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

Biden and his broken foot story – Anyone really believe him?

 

Am I the only one that thinks Biden’s story about his fractured foot makes little sense? Finally someone questions him.

Let me start here. Seriously? A CAT scan for a broken bone in the foot? No x-ray or MRI? It would seem the more plausible. I had read where he was going to have to wear a “boot a couple of weeks.”  I have had friends with the same injury and it was no couple of weeks. Better yet? Now he claims he has several versions of his boot so “boot light” is worn for the interview included in this post.

 

(I am not a doctor but I play one.)

 

 

 

 

We never know where he gets the CAT scan.

Gateway Pundit:

Joe Biden supposedly slipped and fractured his foot while playing with his German shepherd named Major on Saturday.

But he hid it from the media for a full 24 hours.

Joe Biden’s team also tried to block the media by maneuvering a press van so that reporters and photogs couldn’t see Biden as he entered the orthopedic office last weekend.

Translation: Alleyway is no doubt a hallway:

Perhaps lunch bucket Joe got a little dizzy and who knows….

It’s a Friday here at the bunker … not much juice left in the tank from all the hearings.

Let me end with a video that someone should show Joe. What can happen when you don’t keep up with your food taster checking things out or visit Fort Marcy Park. Joe’s days are numbered. You betcha.

Just for laughs and giggles. A reminder of the deep state.

 

Other than the lying weasels, all is well in the swamp.

 

 

 

Michael Flynn reveals ‘KRACKEN’, the election, in first interview

 

A fascinating interview with Flynn who appeared on Worldview Weekend of all places. Included is General McInerney, NSA Whistleblower Kirk Wiebe and National Intelligence Author Mary Fanning.

It’s about 30 minutes long and well worth the ride. I have included a few pieces of the transcript as well as a link to the video interview.

Flynn discusses the infamous ‘THE KRAKEN’ and states it is a reference to the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, based out of U.S. Army Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, appearing on the Worldview Weekend broadcast with Brannon Howse in his first interview since being pardoned by President Trump, warned that Americans are living through a historic and dangerous period.

Flynn, who was immediately targeted for indictment by corrupt Obama administration operatives as soon as Trump took office, was pardoned Wednesday, Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving.

He said in the interview with Howse that America stands at a crossroads that will determine whether it survives as a free nation or becomes something “unrecognizable.”

“What’s happening in this country should never happen, and there’s no doubt in my mind we are going through a crucible of history, and if we don’t correct what it is that’s happening in the next couple of weeks, then I hate to really even think what will happen in our country going forward into the latter part of December and certainly into the next month.”

…..“…I’m upset, I’m determined, I’m going to be resilient, and I believe I reflect the millions of people across this country who feel the exact same way I do.”

‘THE KRAKEN’ is a reference to the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, based out of U.S. Army Fort Huachuca, Arizona, U.S. Air Force Lt. General Thomas McInerney (Ret.) revealed today.

Lieutenant General Michael Flynn (U.S. Army, Ret.), in his first interview since President Trump pardoned General Flynn for crimes he did not commit, said today on WVW-TV with Brannon Howse that “this is still a coup in progress.”

“Everything that we are experiencing right now actually is more than just an assault on President Trump. This is an assault on the American Republic,” General Flynn stated.

The 2020 election was rife with fraud in an attempt to steal the election from President Donald Trump on behalf of Joe Biden.

“The Founding Fathers may not have known about cyberwarfare, but they certainly recognized tyranny when they saw it,” General Flynn stated before the interview.

Democratic Party operatives and foreign actors perpetuated various types of election fraud. Foreign enemies assessed the U.S. election in an attempt to steal the election from President Donald Trump.

Norway Criminalizes Certain Hate Speech in Private Homes and Conversations

 

This is like a bad movie. Speech control leading to thought control. We already are being encouraged to rat out our neighbor if they are not “obeying” the Masters demand for correct behavior. Now to the point of discussions with our spouse? Tell me they have to be kidding. Biden is all in with this:

The move to criminalize speech has led to an insatiable appetite for new limitations and broader prosecutions. Norway is an example of this headlong plunge into speech controls and crimes in the West. This week the legislature adopted (without even a vote) a new criminal law that punishes people for saying anything deemed hate speech toward transgender people in their own home or private conversations.

People found guilty of hate speech face a fine or up to a year in jail for private remarks, and a maximum of three years in jail for public comments, according to the penal code.

….

Minister of Justice and Public Security Monica Maeland  declared victory because speech regulation must be “adapted to the practical situations that arise.” The “practical situation” includes speaking to your own spouse or family.

….

The most chilling fact is that European-style speech controls have become a core value in the Democratic Party. Once a party that fought for free speech, it has become the party demanding Internet censorship and hate speech laws. President-Elect Joe Biden has called for speech controls and recently appointed a transition head for agency media issues that is one of the most pronounced anti-free speech figures in the United States.

 

 

From Jonathan Turley:

The New York Post reports that Biden tapped Richard Stengel to take the “team lead” position on the US Agency for Global Media, including Voice of America, the Middle East Broadcasting Networks and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. As I previously addressed in a column, Stengel has been one of the most controversial figures calling for censorship and speech controls. For a president-elect who just called for everyone to “hear each other,” he picked a top aide who wants to silence many.  Since it would be difficult to select a more anti-free speech figure to address government media policy, one has to assume that Biden will continue the onslaught against this core freedom as president.  This is not the first Biden aide to indicate a crackdown on free speech in the new Administration and Biden himself has called for greater censorship on the Internet.

Last year, Stengel wrote a chilling Washington Post op-ed that denounced free speech as a threat to social and political harmony.  Like a number of liberal and Democratic figures, Stengel struggled to convince readers that what they need is less freedom:  “All speech is not equal. And where truth cannot drive out lies, we must add new guardrails. I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate.”

It is a trend that seems now to be find support in the media, which celebrated the speech of French President Emmanuel Macron before Congress where he called on the United States to follow the model of Europe on hate speech.
