Securing Social Media

As always, strong password protection is the number one priority for securing social media accounts. This includes using your phone to enable two factor authentication (2FA) for them. Due to the simple fact that social accounts usually hold far less important data/information than emails, I am willing to bet anything that close to 100% of all hacks against your social accounts will be deterred if you simply enable 2FA for them. It is also a widely known fact that more social accounts are compromised as a result of weak passwords than any other single factor.

Password Security Guide + 2FA: https://roguemedia.co/2019/10/30/tutorial-learning-how-to-write-remember-un-hackable-passwords/

While using your social media accounts, just as with emails, never open a message from or click on links by users, senders or accounts you do not know personally, were not expecting to hear from or haven’t done business with in the past. As I have already with emails, hackers can phish your social media accounts all the same. Moreover, it is actually much easier for a hacker to uncover your “IP Address” through something like Facebook Messenger than it is through email. This can also be done without you clicking on any individual hyperlink. For example, you can find someone’s IP when engaging them on Facebook by using a simple sequence of “cmd commands” – which are freely available on every Windows device.

Like your mother always told you, never talk to strangers – especially online 😉

You can add an extra layer of security to your accounts by preventing them from being “indexed” by search engines and web crawlers. This can be accomplished by making small changes to your account settings. By default, the largest social media platforms are all designed to connect to search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo, in order to make social networking more accessible and convenient for everyone. However, allowing your account to be indexed means that theoretically anyone in the world could search for and find your account if they really wanted. Whereas if you disable your account from being indexed then the only people you personally give your account information to will know where to find it.

To do this, simply go under your accounts setting, scroll to Privacy Settings and uncheck the “Public Search Results” box. This will remove your profile’s page from Google, Bing, and Yahoo search returns. This is also a security practice instructed to Federal Employees and members of the US Defense Department.

Review: White Unveils New Tool for Reporting Social Media Account Closures

While I’m far from the first to report of it unveiling, I don’t really give a fuck – so I am writing this review here today. But, last night I decided to test out Donald Trumps newly unveiled tool/creation – an official web page launched by the White House designed solely to report the “unfair” closing of social media accounts While Trump is doing his best to sell this as an anti-censorship endeavor, indubitably, this move was designed to show support for the alt-right, White Nationalists, White Supremacists and neo-Nazi’s – essentially, the foremost outspoken groups in favor of our Commander In Chief.

If you need any proof of this, look no further than the fact that, starting just about two weeks ago, Facebook began blocking “White Nationalists.” This also adds to a very serious crackdown on conspiracy theorists and outspoken members of the alt-right over recent months/years, such as Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos – just to name a few. However, what I think most people are missing, or deliberately ignoring, is the fact that this crackdown is not only just effecting racists and extremists on the political right. Believe it or not, the crackdown have also effected many of my fellow “Comrades” working for on behalf of both Anonymous and CyberGuerrilla. For example, over the course of the last month alone, Twitter has closed the accounts of LulzSec Kurdistan, Pinoy LulzSec, International CyberGuerrilla A Column, and has even begun scrubbing the hashtag #CgAn offline as much as possible.

To this effect, I decided to investigate Donald Trumps new tool by reporting the closing of @CgAn_Doemela – a loose collection of CyberGuerrilla activists with over 21,000 followers which was inexplicably closed by Twitter just a couple weeks ago. For those of you whom haven’t used or investigated the tool for yourselves, I was actually quite surprised. I say this because the vast majority of information asked by the White House is about yourself, who you are, where you live, what social demographics do you belong to – et cetera. In fact, out of maybe 13 questions, only 2 of them are about the social accounts you are reporting closed in the first place 🤔.

Needless to say, while my actions were sincere, they were also kind of a troll – just to see what the White House was up to and to investigate whether or not they care about the closing of accounts of activists on the extreme political left, in addition to those on the extreme political right? I suppose we will have to wait to find out and see. In the mean time, if you haven’t tried to tool for yourself, you can access the White House’s page below.

Op-Ed: The Upcoming Trial of Julian Assange Is Much More Than A Court Case, It’s A Symbol of Our Time

I’m not exactly sure what it is I’m feeling today, but I fundamentally believe that humanity/society is on the verge of reaching a critical turning point in time/history – a time when we are all collectively going to have to decide if the internet is a tool for good or for bad? Perhaps it’s my past, perhaps it was the arrest of Julian Assange yesterday after 8 years of asylum, perhaps it was news that the President of Sudan resigned just weeks after the President of Algeria, perhaps its the result of all my coverage into “fake news” laws/regulations in countries such as France, China, Jordan, Iraq, Canada, Ethiopia and others, all while state run propagandists organizations like the Institute for State craft and Mossad receive millions/billions in taxpayer funding to do the same – or perhaps still maybe it’s a result of ACTA2 and Copyright reform protests around Europe.

I don’t know and I cant quite say for certain, but I can’t help but feel that humanity/society is on the cusp of something major right now – something revolutionary that will dictate all of our collective freedoms and futures. However, the questions I think we all need to ask ourselves is if we are on the right side of history? Are we all looking out for our own collective best interests/futures?

Unfortunately, I believe that whatever this answer is or may be ultimately boils down to politics and political opinion. It seems to have started with extremist liberals in 2015/2016, but has seemingly infected the entire world ever since. For as bizarre a phenomenon as it was, US liberals/globalists in support of Obama/Clinton in 2015 actually subscribed to the notion that everyone must feel, believe and think the same thing about everyone, everything and every issue – almost literally. The idea that anyone whom did not subscribe to their logic or ideologies should be banned, blacklisted, censored or ousted from society. In other words, “it takes a village” and in order for organized society to work there is no room for dissent, and we must all be working together, on the same page and headed in the same direction – right Hillary? In fact, this attempted homogenization of opinion/society is exactly what led to the rise of the alt-right and other conservative extremists over that same time period – one form of extremism resulting in another, symmetrically.

My Video – State of American Politics 2015/2016:

Believe it or not, I still see this same phenomenon today in the arrest of Julian Assange – only in a somewhat different context. I see it in the re-jailing of Chelsea Manning a week before that and the jailing of Reality Winner a few weeks before that. It’s in the in the Mueller investigations of 2017/2018 and the Comey investigations of 2015/2016 before that. What I’m talking about is the weaponizing of political opinion. The arrogant and self-centered notion that it’s not alright for anyone to disagree with your personal opinions, beliefs or political ideology, and that anyone bold enough to do so must be investigated and/or punished to the full extent of your capabilities/authority – at least if you are the one’s currently in charge/power, that is.

The way I look at it, all across the world, its almost as if society/humanity is waging a political War against itself. It’s not only here in the US, its in the Macron Yellow Vests protests in France, all the Brexit nonsense in the the UK, the Turkish elections of 2019 – so on and so forth. In our modern time politics hasn’t just become a matter of intellectual discussion/debate anymore, it has become a weapon of War to be wielded – both literally and figuratively, foreign and domestic.

But ask yourself, who is this War really empowering? Whom is this War really punishing?

Macron is a multimillionaire President – while thousands of citizens have been arrested, dozens blinded and dozens more losing limbs. Donald Trump is still a billionaire/President of the United States, Bill and Hillary Clinton are still worth hundreds of millions in their own right and only their cronies/minions have been arrested – all while US citizens fight, hate and protest one another in the streets because of their words/policies.

On top of this, the Main Stream Media has never been more influential or profitable than it is today, and in 2019 the MSM has only continued to use their platforms to perpetuate belligerence and political Wars throughout society. We see this every night on Fox News and CNN and this also includes includes the publishing/peddling of the PropOrNotList in 2016, the Google Blacklisting’s of 2017 and Facebook/Twitter purges of 2018 – crippling the platforms of hundreds of small time online news startups, limiting competition, spitting in the face of free speech and freedom of the press while increasing the traffic/profit margins of legacy news publishers.

In our modern hatred for our political rivals, when I look around society all I see is people cutting off their own noses to spite their faces – so to speak. In their own political hatreds, people appear blind to fact that we are all collectively shooting ourselves in the foot. Not only have hundreds of online news platforms been shut down and/or banned offline, including some of my own creations, but people are actually now celebrating the arrest of Julian Assange and others like him. This is also much more symbolic than people understand/realize.

Say what you want about the man or his journalism, the fact of the matter is that everything Julian Assange has ever published 100% cut and dry real, factual material/information. Honestly, can Fox News, CNN, The Washington Post or New York Times claim this? Of course not! For God’s sake, even the Washington Post has to retract the PropOrNotList of 2016, months after the damage from it had already been done. Meanwhile, Julian Assange has never released a single “opinion piece” with his leaks, has never taken a deliberate political stand either direction and not a single one of his leaked documents has ever proven to be fabricated. Whether you like him or not, all Julian Assange did was publish real news/evidence and show people the truth.  Yet, Assange is the man society is after? Why? And what is the point?

I’m not sure what I have to say to make society understand, but I can’t help but feel as though we are on the precipice of something large here. In our blind hatred for our political rivals and in our rabid desire to shut them up, we are destroying our own individual freedoms and liberties, whilst simultaneously censoring free speech and spitting in the face of independent journalism. Society has become so shortsighted, it’s almost as if people do not understand or realize that power is temporary or relative. Sure you can pass laws in the here and now to silence your rivals while you are still in power, but what happens 2, 5, 10 years from now when someone else is in power? Congratulations, in your blind hatred you’ve just now censored yourself as well.

I just don’t understand why people in society have become so arrogant, wreckless and belligerent with their own political ideologies, and I don’t know what to say to make them understand how dangerous we have all become to one another and our collective futures as a result. The more I learn/consume, the more f*cked of a place the world feels or seems to be – if not in reality, then certainly in mentality. I don’t know what to do to educate society, I do not know what to say to make more people care or understand, and I certainly don’t know how to combat ignorance, racism, sexism and political extremism on all levels. The worst part is I don’t think people would even care enough to listen or learn even if I did. All I know is that much sooner than latter, before it’s too late, before we lose our rights to do so, society is going to have to make some serious decisions – decisions which threaten to hand over all of our freedoms and rights to Government regulation and large multinational conglomerates if we are not more careful.

Follow Up: Highlights from First Annual April Lulz Day 2019

On March 31st 2019, I published an article advertising “April Lulz Day 2019,”  an international hacking operation to be launched on April 1st 2019 on behalf of international LulzSec affiliates worldwide. Therefore, it only seems right to do a follow up article here today, chronicling all of the “festivities” associated with the operation – you’re welcome @TheInternet. While I’m certain I did not uncover them all, below is a list of hacks, leaks and defaces from April 1st – at least that I was able to find.

So, what were the highlights you ask!? Ohh, I don’t know, nothing major, “only” about 16 websites were crashed via DDoS attack, 5 websites had their databases hacked and leaked online, 28 websites were defaced, at least 500 Twitter accounts were closed and over 1,000 Facebook accounts were hacked – 😏. Below you can see the full run down, attributed to the sources behind them. All sites marked with “hxxp” are websites crashed via DDoS attacks.

Understanding The Weaponization of Modern Cyberspace & The ‘Secret World’ of International Corporate Espionage

This is a concept which needs some explaining, because no one has really ever taken the time to break it down – at least from what I have seen. What you need to understand is that we live in a unique time in world history, and we are all headed towards an equally unique and uncertain future.

What I mean to say is that the 21st century is an exceptionally prosperous time in human history, there is no mass global Wars, there’s no great plague, the majority of us all have running water, plumbing, electricity, refrigeration and the like, we have bikes, cars, automobiles and planes and the entire world can theoretically be accessible/connectable with the click of a button. Not only is the modern 21st century perhaps the single easiest and most peaceful time in human history, but the human race is now also interconnected in ways that prior generations could have never imagined possible.

With that established however, not all is right as rain. For example, over the course of the last several years the United States, Germany, NATO and the like have all gone on to officially declare “cyber space” and “the internet” as the 5th domain/relm of Warfare – joining more traditions domains of Warfare such land, sea, air and space.

Learn More – NATO’s Recognition of Cyberspace As New Domain of Warfare: https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/1029776.pdf

However, as humanity continues to grapple with its understanding and regulation of our new technologies, we are only just now beginning to see/realize the weaponizing of the internet, internet conglomerates and their infrastructure – and this phenomenon is slowly beginning to rear its ugly head across nearly every other aspect of society these days. For example, consider the following evidence.

Google & The Department of Defense

I start off with Google for a number of reasons, chief among them is the fact that they are the single largest and highest grossing firm on the net. As Google is an American business, what you should know is that the company has a number of active contracts with the United States Government – particularly the United States military industrial complex. If you would like an example, look no further than “Project Maven,” a joint military operation currently underway with the help of Google researchers, developers, staff and Artificial Intelligence algorithms – some of which have recently made international headlines.

It should therefore go without saying, but you can not have a contract with the United States military without your full loyalties belonging to them. For this very reason, this also means that enemies of the US Government, or any other international Government agency for that matter, cannot rely on or trust Google to ensure their full security, privacy or look out for their best interests – especially in regards to contentious geo-political issues/events. In other words, as an American-based business and active military contractor, Google is loyal to the US military and for better or worse, has become a de facto branch of/for it – even if no one actually admits this out loud.

Consequentially enough, this is also why Google has always been restricted by “The Great Firewall of China,” and has recently faced banishment from Russia entirely as recently as just a few weeks ago.

Microsoft, Encryption Back-doors & Government Espionage

Similar to Google, Microsoft is yet another American based business with deep running ties to the United States military industrial complex. For example, every computer owned by the US Army and US Cyber Command is now literally mandated to run exclusively on Microsoft Windows 10 software and Operating Systems.

https://twitter.com/MSinDOD/status/770962514406313986

Now, I want you to notice the dates of those two Tweets above – August 29th and 31st, 2016. I bring this up because just a few weeks prior to this, on August 10th 2016, the Kremlin came out with a press release announcing how it was their immediate intention to begin switching all government/military computing systems off Microsoft and on onto domestically produced software – directly because of Microsoft‘s deep running ties with the US Government and US military.

It wasn’t until just a few months after this, in November 2016, that the Kremlin literally called switching over all their software away from Microsofta matter of national security.” Going on to explain how the Kremlin now believes that “software developed by American companies, such as Microsoft, could hide back-doors and bugs that could help other nations spy on their plans.” Also going as far as to say “not replacing foreign IT would be equivalent to dismissing the army.

Read More – Russia’s Plan To Abandon Microsoft & Foreign Software 9/17/2016: https://news.softpedia.com/news/president-elect-donald-trump-can-t-stop-russia-s-war-against-american-software-510294.shtml

If you think this conundrum is unique to Russia, you are mistaken. Believe it or not, Microsoft has similarly been banned from all Government systems in China dating back to 2013. This is when the country first interrogated then political asylum seeker/NSA contractor Edward Snowden, whom revealed that the United States has been secretly using Microsoft to conduct espionage on the Chinese Government and its companies for decades. Not only this, but Microsoft‘s own search engine, Bing, was also banned in China as recently as January 2019 – for essentially all the same reasons.

ZTE & Corporate Espionage

Consequentially enough, this sets me up perfectly for my next bit – America’s banning of the Chinese-based telecommunications conglomerate known as Zhongxing Telecommunication Equipment – otherwise simply referred to as ZTE. Truth be told, I first learned of this news after attempting to go into an AT&T in store in downtown New York City for repairs on my phone, only to find out that AT&T refused to fix my screen because it was a ZTE product – based out of China. They informed me that it was no longer their policy to service and/or fix any Chinese based phone, and advised me to purchase a new American phone – to which I declined, and not respectfully.

Regardless, similar in many ways to to the complaints international Government agencies have been levying against American tech giants for years now, the US has now started levying against other international tech giants/conglomerates. It is just a shame that this information is generally not available or public knowledge to the average American hopelessly wandering around our society.

Kaspersky & US Election Hacking

Along the same lines, throughout the course of 2017, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) made it a top priority to ban Kaspersky Lab anti-virus and other software from all Government systems around the United States. This is because, upon investigation, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation had come to believe that US government employees and personnel were originally compromised via the Kaspersky Lab products they had installed on their devices, which granted the Russian based software conglomerate root access over all their systems. Put more directly, the US Government had come to believe that Kaspersky Lab roots were the whole reason that Russia was able to hack the 2016 Presidential election and US Government employees so easily in the months just before it – especially considering Russian laws requires Russian companies to make all of their data freely accessible to the Kremlin. These laws are also why Kasperky later moved all of their severs out of Russia and into Switzerland by 2018, even though the public damage to the company had already been done.

However, it must also be stated while there was never any cut and dry evidence released indicating that this was indeed the case, at least publicly, and there are still technically court cases ongoing surrounding these allegations, the US Governments ban of Kaspersky has been implemented nonetheless. As a result, Kaspersky has also faced similar bans throughout Europe.

I also don’t know what it says about me, but I just bought a new computer two weeks ago and the first thing I did was install Kaspersky Lab software on it. I also own a ZTE phone 😉.

Facebook & Psychological Warfare

The last two sections of this article are almost exclusive to Rogue Media Labs, at least I have not seen anyone else reporting on these issues outside of Russia. The first is the fact that Facebook has quite literally become a military weapon – and no, I am not talking about Russia’s use of fake news, fake advertisements or propaganda either. While yes, those were huge problems in their own right throughout 2015/2016, new developments as of 2018/2019 are far more troubling and grotesque. More specifically, I am talking about the US Governments use of Facebook as a means of waging so-called “Psychological Warfare” against our adversaries.

Learn More – Russia Bans Military Personnel from Using Social Media To Counter-Act US Sponsored Psych-Ops: https://roguemedia.co/2018/11/09/russia-bans-active-duty-military-personnel-from-sharing-on-social-media/

You may recall a 2017 statement by James Mattis in which he personally stated how, as a result of complacency and improper funding of the US Department of Defense (DoD) under the previous administration, the United States has now fallen behind the rest of the world in several realms of Warfare – such as cyberspace, ultimately allowing the US elections to be hacked in the first place. Regardless, in an effort to ‘catch back up with the rest of the world,’ not only has Trump begun heavily investing back in the US military industrial complex, but we as a nation have also begun experimenting with new, unconventional forms of Warfare. For the purposes of this particular article I would like to talk specifically about Psychological Warfare and our use of Psych-Ops, as well as how these operations can be and are already actively being carried out online – in some instances, exclusively through Facebook.

Read More – US Military Field Manual on Unconventional Warfare: https://roguemedia.co/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/US_Army_Field_Manual_Unconventional_Warfare_2008.pdf

If you were previously unaware, in November of 2018 the Kremlin signed a new piece of legislation into law officially banning all active duty military personnel from owning social media accounts or sharing across social platforms. This is because, at the time, according to the Kremlin itself, social platforms such as Facebook had begun being used to collect “analysis of the activities of the Russian military.” Explaining how “The data shared by the servicemen online is used to apply psychological and information pressure on Russia and its military as well as forming biased opinions on state policies of Russian authorities in society.” Not only this, but the US Government had also taken it a step further by using platforms like Facebook to wage psychological Warfare against Russian soldiers serving abroad in locations such as Syria and Africa.

For example, given that Facebook hosts its servers inside the United States, the US Government has started hijacking their platform in order to pretend to be friends or family members of Russian troops serving abroad. Not only does the US Government do this to organize psychological profiles on individual members of Russia’s military, but in some instances they also use Facebook accounts to cause Russian troops “distress” back home – by faking/fabricating conflicts, arguments or unfortunate circumstances with friends and family back in Russia.This was done to make Russian troops feel as though aspects of their lives were completely falling apart outside of their control back home, thus taking away pride/focus from their military efforts as they served abroad. It may have taken a few months to figure out, but the Kremlin did eventually catch on.

Despite however low down and “dirty” of a trick that is, this remains our current reality – at least under our new Commander In Chief Donald Trump as we continue to exploit American businesses internationally.

Twitter & Spying

I am proud to say that this last bit is exclusive to Rogue Media Labs, because it features research I have personally pieced together over recent months. They say that some of the worlds greatest discoveries were made by accident, and this last bit of news is no different.

The first bit of information I would like to share is something I have already shared a few months ago, which is the fact that Twitter is absolutely using their service to spy on its users. Not only can this be evidenced by the fact that every deleted Tweet attached to an owners account is secretly sent directly to Twitters internal servers, but also by the fact that I have personally caught the service recording one of my private messages with a famous hacker known as Nama Tikure. As previously reported, as I was physically typing it out on screen, a custom key logger built by yours truly accidentally caught Twitter bots clicking on my URL address literally 19 times in a 17 second time period. For some perspective on this, I never even pressed ‘enter’ onto the chat. Meaning that all of these clicks were recorded on my end, with all 19 IP Address ranges listed assigned exclusively to Twitter bots. In other words, I accidentally caught Twitter red hand trying to secretly record and log every last aspect of my private messages – and I am certain this isn’t or wasn’t an isolated incident.

Learn More- Twitter Caught Clandestinely Intercepting The Messages of Its Users: https://roguemedia.co/2019/01/15/twitter-bots-caught-clandestinely-logging-the-private-messages-of-their-users/

The second bit of research is something I accidentally discovered last night, completely unrelated to this article and also 100% accidentally. I could describe it in more detail, but this article is already long enough. So ironically, I instead direct you to the following Tweet…..

Wrapping Things Up

I’m almost embarrassed to admit it, but the whole reason I got riled up enough to write this article was the fact that, upon buying my computer, I was immediately offered 25 GB of free storage from DropBox. Sounds like an amazing deal – right? Who wouldn’t want to jump all over that – right? How generous and caring of a company Dropbox must be! Right?

Well, I’m sorry to 💩 on your parade, so to speak, but that just isn’t exactly the reality of the situation at hand here. I know it’s getting a bit redundant at this point, but the fact of the matter is that Dropbox is a subsidiary – an American subsidiary. Moreover, as the US Governments Supreme Court case with Microsoft proves, as an American company, the US Government has the right to any/all data owned by that company if the Government truly wants it.

See where I am going here? The reason why Dropbox is offering 25 GB of free space to anyone who wants it is so that ignorant sheeple, I mean citizens, will upload all of their data to it – so that the US Government can own all that data themselves. The worst part is the fact that Dropbox is subsidized to mislead you to do exactly this, which is also why they can afford to offer up some much free storage space to so many people for free. I know, yay Capitalism – right? 😏.

UK Parliament Releases 8th & Final Report Into Fake News Interference

Last week the United Kingdom’s Parliament released their 8th and final report in conclusion of their two year long investigation into international “fake news” programs, providing unique insight into how UK government researchers believe fake news and other propaganda programs like them may have manipulated society, culture, government agencies, elections and/or businesses practices worldwide between 2017 and 2019. Produced by the House of Commons under the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee and officially entitled “Disinformation and ‘fake news’: Final Report,” the 111 page report specifies a number of changes that researchers believe the UK Government needs to make to crack down on future abuses, as well as a set of guidelines for legislators to follow to safeguard/protect future elections.

Perhaps most notably, as least here in the United States, was the UK’s chastising of Facebook for what they deemed to be blatant violations of data privacy and anti-monopoly laws. Interestingly enough, these criticism as similar to the ones Mark Zuckerberg faced during his testimony in front of US Congress April 2018. Also somewhat ironically, the UK’s report on the manipulation of fake news programs comes in the midst of a series of international leaks implicating as secret Government agency known as the Institute for Statecraft, funded exclusively to create and disseminate fake news and other propaganda in countries all around the world.

Understanding The Principles, The Economic Perversion Modern Capitalism Has Manifested

I think it goes without saying, but my brain just doesn’t seem to function the same way or interpret the world like everyone else in society. That having been said, one of the weirdest advertisements I keep coming across here in ‘American society’ is a new commercial currently being pushed on behalf of the Coca-Cola company, which is just a :facepalm: to have to watch. For example, every time I go to the movie theater and sit down for previews I see the following video, literally every single time without fail:

Feels all heartwarming and fuzzy, right? Makes you feel really good about the world and what the Coca-Cola company is doing, right? Well, that’s just not the way my mind works. For example, every time I see that video my internal monologue reads something like “Seriously? Coca-Cola does know it’s a liquid candy manufacturing company which infuses its products with carbon-dioxide, that first got famous by mixing cocaine in with their product, right?….. I wonder how much they’ve contributed to Americas diabetes epidemic? …… I wonder how many of their plastic bottles and bottle caps are now currently floating around the great Pacific Garbage Patch or clogging up some whales stomach right now?

For the life of me, I just cant understand why a liquid candy corporation is trying to sell itself as some great utopian humanitarian hero of the future? It literally makes no sense to me. But then again, maybe I am just cynical – you think?

With that established, the whole ordeal reminds of an old “Opinion Editorial” I once wrote a couple years ago, but have since taken down – long since forgotten. The theme revolves around the concept of how Capitalism has a unique way of corrupting or perverting society, whilst also incentivizing immorality and empowering corruption. What I mean to say it that, at least from my perspective, it just feels like Capitalism has a unique way of motivating people or businesses to make as much money as humanly possible, instead of motivating them to do the best job as humanly possible or produce the highest quality product they can.

How/Where Can This Be Observed?

This “phenomenon” can be observed in America’s food market where companies, including Coca-Cola, use High Fructose Corn syrup instead of sugar in the production of their products. But did you know that High Fructose Corn Syrup is banned in many countries around the world, such as in Russia and throughout Europe? This is because High Fructose Corn Syrup is far less healthy than traditional sugar. However, American corporations have grown famous for substituting sugar with High Fructose Corn Syrup because it is far cheaper than sugar. Essentially, American companies don’t care if it makes for a lower quality product or how unhealthy it is for their end consumers, if Coca-Cola can save one penny per bottle flavoring with corn syrup instead of sugar then that’s exactly what they are going to do.

The phenomenon can also be observed in America’s toy manufacturing industry. Remember back in the 40’s and 50’s when everything was made of metal or tin? You can still find many of these toys available today as collectible items. This is because, back in the day, companies used to strive to produce high quality products – products that would stand the test of time. Today however, all of our toys are made out of plastic and break within a week of being opened. Once again, this is because it’s far cheaper to build/produce something made of plastic than it is metal – so this is the switch companies have made.

It can also be seen in America’s manufacturing industry, which saw millions of jobs outsourced to India and Asia throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s. Essentially, why would an American company pay an American $15/hr when they could pay some Asian worker $3/hr for the same job? Economically, it just doesn’t make any sense. Consequentially, this is exactly why all of Americas jobs were outsourced overseas to begin with, so that American capitalists could maximize their profit margins and make as much money as humanly possible.

You can even find it within Americas online entertainment industry. For example, remember when Mark Zuckerberg lost billions of dollars overnight, literally hours after announcing changes to Facebook‘s advertising systems – limiting the exposure of advertisements on his social network? At the time, Zuckerberg had came out with a manifesto explaining how he had arrived at this decision as a means of improving/helping society by cracking down on fake news and other click-bait related advertisements, but only proceeded to lose billions for it. Essentially, it served as a perfect example of why/how it doesn’t exactly pay to do the right or moral thing – at least in American society.

No matter where you look or what industry you’re observing, it just feels like the America’s economic model motivates businesses to strive to create the cheapest, lowest quality product they can – that someone will still actually be willing to spend their money on to buy. This is in place of challenging them to compete to produce the best or highest quality product they can, to stand out above their competition and therefore earn peoples money the right way. The way I see it, this is exactly how Capitalism has perverted Americas economic model and culture over time – hence the name of this article.

Ecuadorian Burger King Databases Hacked by Take Down Root, +155,000 Clients Effected

In news first brought to my attention via Defcon Lab, a hacking group going by the name of “Take Down Root” has claimed responsibility for a massive hack of Burger King, effecting franchise chains throughout the country of Ecuador. In a posting on Minds.com, an underground social media aggregator similar in many ways to Facebook, the group announced that have successfully hacked the data of well over 150,000 clients belonging to fast food chains online web portals.

According to the hackers, they managed to steal approximately 4.1 Gigabytes (GB) of data attached to a MongoDB web server hosted by GoDaddy.com in Scottsdale, Arizona – apparently where the franchise choose to host their data. All told, approximately 155,645 customers throughout Ecuador were effected, revealing information such as their unique identification numbers, full names, passwords and email addresses.

While the hackers declined to publicly release the data of each and every client effected, they did release screen shots from their activity whilst inside the database, as well as a small sample of 1,000 clients through the Pastebin web service.

Satirical: FSB/Kremlin Prepared to Declassify All Documents Corresponding To 2016 Election Hacking Campaign

** WARNING: This article is a Satire. I know this is a “big word” for my American viewing audience, so to specify, the definition of a satire “is the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.” Understand now? Didn’t think so. **

By now I think more and more people are starting to come to the realization/understanding that I have access to a lot of information that others do not, and have perhaps seen more than my fair share of things I shouldn’t have over the years. Not only do I remain one of Anonymous largest supporters, but dating back to 2015 I literally wrote the book(s) on how to remain/keep an Anonymous identity online. But on through today people look at my website and Twitter feed and ask, “how is it possible for one person to source so much content on a daily basis? How do you do it” they wonder?

Well, if you must know, I presided as contents specialist over one of the biggest “Russian Propaganda” outlets in the world from mid 2015 to November 2016 – at least according to the Washington Post and US liberal media, that is. If you didn’t pick up on it right away, this was also the exact same time period of the EU elections and US Presidential campaign season directly leading up to the month and year of Donald Trumps election – but that’s all just a coincidence, I think. Years after the fact, not only did my Government flag my work and the work I sourced to others as “Fake News,” but it has also been “Blacklisted” and banned from Google and Facebook as propaganda. Quite ironic that I have since gotten 4 different domains accepted for inclusion into Google News and 3 different pages verified by Facebook over the exact same period they were blacklisting all my previous work – don’t you think?

But without making this about myself, one of the most interesting pieces of “information” I’ve ever come across in all my years online was the alleged dirt that “the Russians” were holding over Donald Trumps head. To be more exact, back in 2013, well before Donald Trump ever became President, he traveled to Moscow for the Miss Universe Pageant. As the story goes, one night that Donald Trump returned to his hotel room he was sent a “gift” – a gift of the flesh; a prostitute. However, what Donald Trump did not know at the time was that this prostitute was deliberately underage, and given that everything in Russia has been ‘wiretapped‘ dating back to the KGB days of the Cold War, the Russians have been holding this over Donald Trumps head as “Blackmail” ever since.

Consequentially enough, this is the real reason why Donald Trump has refused to sign US Congressional sanctions against Russia into law, the reason why Jared Kushner has tried to outsource so much business to Russia over the years, as well as why Donald Trump has been an apologist for Vladimir Putin since first taking office – “allegedly.” I also call this ‘alleged information‘ for a reason, because as the saying goes, “there is a difference between facts and information” and if I was ever actually able to prove any of this, Donald Trump would either resign or be impeached, and I would either be winning a Pulitzer prize for journalism or assassinated – take your pick. #WhatUpKhashoggi! Too soon?

Why Any of This Bring This Up?

I bring this up because yesterday afternoon I came across a press release from Nikolai Murashov, deputy director of the Federal Security Service CTRC, explaining how the FSB is prepared to declassify all correspondence related to the US election hacking campaign of 2016 – if the FSB’s counterparts in the USA don’t object to it, that is. Before breaking this down, you seriously have to understand much of a loaded statement this really is.

For example, between Robert Mueller, the House of Representative, US Senate and God knows how many lobbyists working for or on behalf of different inter-governmental agencies, the United States has quite literally spent two years and hundreds upon hundreds of millions of dollars collectively trying to figure out what the Russians were up to in 2016. Not only this, but despite all of this time, money and effort, not a single one of these investigations has actually concluded yet, been closed or even “solved.” Yet as we site here today, December 12th 2018, the Kremlin is saying that they are fully prepared to publish everything these people/investigators have spent years trying to figure out, entirely for free with no strings attached – lulz.

So Why Ask US Permission?

This is exactly why I say you have to understand how much of a loaded statement the FSB’s announcement this week really was, because indubitably this is just a “Troll.” But despite the hilarity of it all, this may be no joking matter.

Of course Russia is ready to release this information to the international public right now, I mean think about it. Despite however strong the US Oligarchy may be, soon enough someone is eventually going to have to ask or demand Mueller to start wrapping things up already, and even Congress knows they can’t possibly let a 4 year old investigation distract from new/critical talking points headed into the 2020 election season. Within the next year, possibly sooner, everyone working for this Government is going to have start moving on with their lives, stop pouting about being bested by the Russians in 2015/2016 and start closing their investigations. Put a different way, all of these Russian investigations are going to be coming to an end within the next year, more likely that not before the first Presidential debates in December 2019.

You better believe that Russia would love nothing more than to declassify all of their documents relating to the 2016 election hacking campaign right now, because it would completely undermine the results of every US investigation into it. Essentially, who cares what Mueller, Warner and Burr think about what Russia did when you can have the actual intelligence documents/blueprint straight from the source; straight from the Kremlin? Moreover, how hilarious would it be for the Kremlin to spontaneously release all of this material within weeks of the conclusion of all these two year long Federal investigations? It would make the last two years and the hundreds of millions of dollars spent look/seem utterly worthless.

Secondly, the FSB’s announcement this week only puts added pressure on Trump and the US Government. Think about it, what if Donald Trump or someone working in his cabinet actually says “No” to Russia and tells them not to declassify the material? Wouldn’t that make it seem like he was trying to hide something –  or was “colluding” with them if you will to keep something secret? Don’t you think the US press would jump all over that? Do you know how bad the Trump Administration would look if someone representing him actually told Russia not to go through with it? That’s what makes the FSB’s announcement this week such a world class troll, or ingenious depending on how you want to look at it – because so many people are going to get f*cked by it either way, whether Russia decides to publish the documents or not.

But Such Is Informational Warfare – Right?

The even funnier thing about all of this is that Russia has already admitted to trying to undermine or meddle in the 2016 US Presidential election several times throughout the course of the last year and a half – just not necessarily using those exact/specific words.

For example, in February 2017 Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu publicly announced the formation of Russia’s newest military unit, an “Informational Warfare Unit” specifically designed to combat fake news/propaganda against Russia and spread it on their behalf across the global theater. While Shoigu indicated the unit had been active for quite some time before February 2017, the occasion marked the first time the Russian military was willing to admit to its existence. If that’s not enough evidence to sway you, just a few weeks ago the Kremlin officially filed motion in a New York City court room to dismiss charges against 10 Russian operatives charged as being Wikileaks sources for the Hillary Clinton and DNC email hack/leaks.

In the motion linked above, dated November 18th 2018, the Kremlin specifically demands that their operatives be granted immunity in this case, because hacking Clinton and the DNC were tied to a deliberate military operation – and military actions/operations are granted immunity in individual courtrooms worldwide, regardless of the country perpetrating them. Given that the US has the largest military on Earth and is actively engaged in 7 different War zones right now, perhaps no other country on Earth benefits more from this immunity than the US does. Regardless, in doing so, Russia is directly admitting that the Kremlin ordered the hack of Clinton and the DNC as part of a much broader military campaign/operation in 2016 – they are even willing to testify to this in court!

Given the evidence, I am not quite sure why none of these Federal investigations have concluded or why the US public is last to know, but it is a general fact that Russia has already admitted guilt into election hacking/meddling years ago. Quite frankly, it’s a marvel how the US press organizations operate. This is also why, on through to today, all those millions spent and years lost investigating Russia’s influence is utterly useless. Whether the Russians declassify these documents or not, we already know the truth, we already know Russia was behind all of this. The fact of the matter is that all of these never-ending investigations into Russian meddling are nothing more than wastes of time and money, abusing resources to keep producing news headlines, keep the American public living in fear of Russia while making Donald Trump look as corrupt as possible. In other words, all of these Federal investigations into Russian propaganda are nothing more than “American Propaganda” in their own right – farcical at best.

Sorry if this is the first time you are hearing any of this or you are the last to know. But keep watching CNN, I’m sure they’ll have a breakthrough on any of these investigations any day now 😂

UK Parliament Publishes Seized Facebook Documents from Cambridge Analytica Scandal/Investigation

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. Yesterday, December 5th 2018, U.K. lawmaker Damian Collins released the entire trove of Facebook documents seized as a result of the 2018 Cambridge Analytica scandal and subsequent investigation, 250 pages in total. Among other things, the documents are said to detail Facebook‘s strategy/tactics when competing with other Apps or social platforms online, as well as how the company was known to White-list or protect the data from high paying companies/customers, whilst simultaneously exposing/exploiting the data of others.

Despite months of investigation, UK’s Parliament maintains that they have not been getting “straight answers” from Mark Zuckerberg or his company, which is why the decided to release the documents to the public this week – to step up public pressure on the company. Perhaps more importantly, the documents were also released as to give US authorities a chance to look over the information for themselves, especially considering that tens of millions of American voters were the ones implicated in the 2018 Cambridge Analytica data breach. If US authorities deem necessary, Facebook could face serious fines from the Federal Trade Commission in the near future- though that still remains to be seen.

For now, you have equal opportunity to view the documents in live time just as our own Government does – and honestly, how rare of an opportunity is that? This is why, along with UK’s Parliament, so too is Rogue Media Labs publishing the documents.

Report: Foreign Trolls Posing As US Veterans Online

A few weeks after Rogue Media Labs first published a report explaining how the Kremlin has started banning all active duty military personnel from social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, a new report has surfaced exposing how foreign actors have begun impersonating US Military veterans across social media. Entitled “Foreign Entities Imitating American Veterans Organizations and Sowing Discord with Falsified or Manipulated News” and prepared by the Vietnam Veterans of America, the 11 page report documents how unknown actors have actively begun trying to impersonate and/or infiltrate online groups tied to various US military veterans with the intent of sowing hostility and misinformation.

Presented to the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security last month, the report explains how “similar to widely-reported stories of “troll farms” sowing discord during the 2016 election cycle and specifically targeting veterans, these online entities operate by first appealing to patriotic, Americans, and once they have gained the trust of tens or hundreds of thousands of followers, they begin spreading manipulated and divisive news and other political content.” Considering that this sort of activity only seems to be on the rise across 2017-2018, the Vietnam Veterans of America is claims that getting out ahead of this issue may be “a matter of National Security” headed into the future

View Full Report Here: https://docs.house.gov/meetings/IF/IF00/20180411/108090/HHRG-115-IF00-20180411-SD014.pdf

Describing how these troll pages/accounts operate, researchers explain how “while most of these pages share junk memes of no significance, the page did occasionally share deceptive or manipulated news and political content that was likely shared to incite an emotional reaction from veterans.” This is interesting to note because in 2017 I specifically remember drafting a report teaching members of the public how to spot troll accounts and/or bots operating online, describing how nearly 100% of the time bot social accounts almost exclusively share inciteful memes just to get people riled up and emotional. Adding that if a social account shares nothing but politically charged memes, has thousands upon thousands of followers and makes random replies to comments that have nothing at all to do with the original comment posted, then in all likelihood you are dealing with a bot account – something seemingly verified by the Vietnam Veterans of America‘s Senate report.

You might also be surprised to know that almost all of the accounts implicated in the report were not created by “the Russians.” For example, the largest troll account uncovered by researchers was actually registered Anonymously through a .eu domain in Bulgaria. Other accounts investigated by the group traced back to the Eastern Europe and Ukraine. Sadly enough though, the group says that they have stopped reporting pages/trolls to Facebook for the time being. Not only has reporting pages been unsuccessful, but the group also notes that “simply shutting down pages does not prevent others from rising in their place, nor does it allow us to find out who is behind them or what their motivations are.” So, much like the FBI’s stance on ISIS terror accounts, Vietnam Vets feels as though it’s more important to keep these accounts active and monitor their activity to gather intelligence, rather than shut them down and force them offline – at least for the time being.
