Emails Show Russia-linked Hackers Tried 5 Times to Break into Hillary Clinton’s Private Server

THANKS HILLARY CLINTON FOR PUTTING AMERICA AT RISK FOR YOUR SELFISH PURPOSES.

EMAIL-GATE CONTINUES TO GET WORSE FOR HILLARY CLINTON …  The AP is reporting that Russian linked hackers tried at least 5 times to break into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. It turns out that the hackers knew Hillary Clinton was using a private email account that they tried a phishing attempt on her private email in the form of a phony speeding ticket. Unbelievable, this is what happens when you have a private email account with no security measures. Had these emails been on a government server, it would all but be assured that they would have never gotten through cyber security.

Hillary Clinton Email_phising

Russia-linked hackers tried at least five times to pry into Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private email account while she was US secretary of state, emails released Wednesday show.

It is unclear, however, if she clicked on any attachment and exposed her account.

Clinton received the infected emails, disguised as speeding tickets, over four hours early on the morning of August 3, 2011.

The emails instructed recipients to print the attached tickets, which would have allowed hackers to take control of their computers.

Security researchers who analyzed the malicious software in September 2011 said that infected computers would transmit information from victims to at least three server computers overseas, including one in Russia.

But the phishing attempts highlight the risk of Clinton’s unsecure email being pried open by foreign intelligence agencies, even if others also received the virus concealed as a speeding ticket from Chatham, New York. The email misspelled the name of the city, came from a supposed New York City government account and contained a “Ticket.zip” file that would have been a red flag.

Most commercial antivirus software at the time would have detected the software, identified it as dangerous and prevented users from infecting themselves. It was unclear if the State Department’s network security would have flagged the infected message, or what precautions were in place protecting Clinton’s server in the basement of her home in Chappaqua.

George Zimmerman Back in the News & Under Fire After Retweeting Photo of Trayvon Martin’s Corpse

 GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, GO AWAY, TURN OFF ALL SOCIAL MEDIA AND JUST GO AWAY.

George Zimmerman finds himself back in the news and once again it is because of his own doing. Over the weekend Zimmerman retweeted a a pic of the corpse of Trayvon Martin used as evidence in his murder trail where he was found not guilty. The user called Zimmerman a “one man army.” The tweets have since been taken down; however, Zimmerman then went on a rant wondering when other hateful and threatening pics toward him on Twitter would be taken down as well.

It has always amazed me that Casey Anthony had more sense than both George Zimmerman and O.J Simpson that once they were given a get out of jail free card, the tot mom basically went into hiding to live her life while Simpson and Zimmerman kept pushing the narcissist envelop. Note to George Zimmerman, you might want to take a look as to where OJ is these days and cool it.

George Zimmerman’s Twitter trolling has reached a new low.

Days after retweeting an image of Trayvon Martin’s corpse, Zimmerman went on a depraved Twitter tirade Monday afternoon, spewing racist rants and boasting about “mocking all you trolls.”

The man who shot and killed Martin three years ago also gave out an apparent stranger’s phone number, referring “all media inquiries” to the unsuspecting man.

“Gee..I sure hate offending people that have plotted and tried to kill me and my family…” Zimmerman wrote with one tweet, with a photo matching President Obama with Virginia murderer Vester Flanagan.

Last Night Hillary Clinton Apologized For Her Private Emails … But What Exactly Is She Sorry For?

Last night in an interview with ABC News Hillary Clinton made a formal apology for the use of her private emails while she was Secretary of State. But Ron Fournier of National Journal brings up some very important questions, like what is it exactly tat you are apologizing for? In his article Ron Fournier puts forth numerous questions that Hillary Clinton must answer.

Hillary Clinton unethical

“I’m sorry about that,” Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton said six years after seiz­ing con­trol of gov­ern­ment email and after six months of deny­ing wrong­do­ing. Just this week, it took three dif­fer­ent in­ter­views in four days for her to beg the puni­est of par­dons: “I do think I could have and should have done a bet­ter job an­swer­ing ques­tions earli­er.”

You think? By any ob­ject­ive meas­ure, the Demo­crat­ic pres­id­en­tial front-run­ner has re­spon­ded to her email scan­dal with de­flec­tion and de­cep­tion, shred­ding her cred­ib­il­ity while giv­ing a skep­tic­al pub­lic an­oth­er reas­on not to trust the in­sti­tu­tions of polit­ics and gov­ern­ment.

An apo­logy doesn’t fix that. An apo­logy also doesn’t an­swer the scan­dal’s most im­port­ant ques­tions.

1. While apo­lo­giz­ing in an ABC in­ter­view on Tues­day, you said, “What I had done was al­lowed, it was above board.” You must know by now that while the State De­part­ment al­lowed the use of home com­puters in 2009, agency rules re­quired that email be se­cured. Yours was not. Just nine months in­to your term, new reg­u­la­tions re­quired that your emails be cap­tured on de­part­ment serv­ers. You stashed yours on a home-brewed sys­tem un­til Con­gress found out. Why not ad­mit you vi­ol­ated policy? Why do you keep mis­lead­ing people?

Hillary Clinton_what

Suddenly the smartest woman in the world has no answers

Below are some of the questions being put forth that Hillary Clinton needs to answer with regarding to her email scandal. If she does not, she should not even be considered to be president if she failed the American people so as Secretary of State. Read the full article HERE.

2. If what you did was “above board,” then you wouldn’t ob­ject to all ex­ec­ut­ive branch of­fi­cials at every level of gov­ern­ment and from both parties stor­ing their email on private serv­ers – out of the pub­lic’s reach. Tell me how that wouldn’t sub­vert the fed­er­al Free­dom of In­form­a­tion Act and “sun­shine laws” in every state?

3. If what you did was “al­lowed,” then you wouldn’t ob­ject to all ex­ec­ut­ive branch of­fi­cials at every level of gov­ern­ment and from both parties us­ing secret serv­ers to shield them­selves from le­gis­lat­ive over­sight. Wouldn’t that un­der­mine the le­gis­lat­ive branch’s con­sti­tu­tion­al au­thor­ity?  Wouldn’t it lead to more polit­ic­al cor­rup­tion?

5. Who au­thor­ized the de­le­tion of 31,000 emails from your serv­er? Who car­ried it out? Were they ap­proved to re­view and se­cure clas­si­fied doc­u­ments?

18. If the FBI finds you im­prop­erly handled clas­si­fied in­form­a­tion, but does not charge you with a crime, will you main­tain that you did noth­ing wrong? (Yes, ma’am, that is a hy­po­thet­ic­al, but so is a pres­id­en­tial can­did­acy. Please an­swer.)

Former State Department Officials Say Hillary’s E-mail Defense is ‘Total BS’

Hillary Clinton’s email defense is as I like to refer to … “Bovine Scatology”.

It appears that others are calling BS on Hillary Clinton and her excuses with the email/private server scandal. Former State Department security officials are calling Hillary Clinton’s email defense total bull $hit. Any secretary of state should have known better. It would appear that Hillary’s excuses are wearing thin with ex-state department insiders. This scandal is far from a right-wing conspiracy witch hunt that Ms. Clinton would have every one believe. It just will not go away. Why, because it has merit and legs. For the first time I am actually believing that this might just sink her presidential run.

Hillary Clinton_BS

Former State Department security officials don’t buy Hillary Clinton’s latest alibi that she couldn’t tell that government e-mails — which she improperly, if not illegally, kept for several years on an unsecured home server — contained top-secret information because they lacked official markings and weren’t classified until later.

Such messages contain sensitive “keywords” distinguishing them from unclassified information, even if the material didn’t bear a classified heading as she claims.

The secretary would have known better, the department ­officials say, because she was trained to understand the difference when she was “read in” on procedures to ID and handle classified information by diplomatic-security officials in 2009.

Clinton also went through a so-called “read-off” when she left ­office in 2013. In that debriefing, security officials reminded her of her duty to return all classified documents, including ones in which the classification status is “uncertain,” which would have included the e-mails stored on her private server — which she only this month turned over to authorities. The read-off would have included her signing a nondisclosure agreement.

Perv Josh Duggar Admits Cheating on Wife After Data Released in Ashley Madison Hack

OK, IT’S OFFICIAL, JOSH DUGGAR IS JUST A DEGENERATE PERV …

Following the release of members data by hackers from the affair orientated web site, Ashley Madison, former reality TV star Josh Duggar admitted today that he had subscribed to the website and cheated on his wife. Really, you scumbag? If it wasn’t bad enough that Josh Duggar skated on molesting his sisters when he was a teen and was never punished for it, now we find out the one time executive director of the Family Research Council, who stepped down in disgrace, was a paying member on the adulterous website Ashley Madison and cheated on his lovely wife. This goes beyond hypocrite, YOU ARE A POS SCUMBAG!!!

Former reality TV star Josh Duggar on Thursday admitted cheating on his wife after reports that he had subscribed to the Ashley Madison affair website, apologizing for being “the biggest hypocrite ever.”

“While espousing faith and family values, I have been unfaithful to my wife,” Duggar, 27, a former campaigner for family values who appeared on the TLC show “19 Kids and Counting,” said in a statement posted on his family’s website.

“The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country I was hiding my own personal failures,” he added, calling himself the “biggest hypocrite ever.”

The Discovery Communications-owned network last month cancelled “19 Kids,” after disclosures in May that Duggar had sexually abused four of his sisters when he was a teenager, one of whom was under 10 years old at the time.

Duggar apologised in a statement, saying he “acted inexcusably,” and resigned from his job at Christian lobbying group Family Research Council.

In an earlier version of Duggar’s statement posted on the family’s website and reported by People magazine and Buzzfeed, he said “I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”

Josh Duggar Spent $1000 on Ashley Madison Site?

People can ask for forgiveness and can be forgiven, however, there has to be remorse, true remorse, not the kind that one gets just because they are caught red handed with their hands in the cookie jar.

15,000 Government Emails Revealed in Affair Ashley Madison Website Leak, Including IRS, DHS & Obama White House (Update: Josh Duggar Said To Have Multiple Accounts)

WELL ISN’T THIS EMBARRASSING … 15,000 Government email accounts used to register accounts were hosted on government servers.

As reported at The Hill, 15,000 government emails were used to register accounts on the “want to have an affair on your spouse or significant other” website, Ashley Madison. According to reports, the 15,000 of the email addresses used to register accounts were hosted on government and military servers. The Department of Veterans Affairs is the largest, non-military federal user of Ashley Madison; however, also represented on the list includes emails that could be tied to multiple administration agencies, including the State Department and Department of Homeland Security, House, Senate and Obama White House. Hmm … isn’t that interesting.  Ashley Madison, whose tagline is “Life is Short, Have an Affair,” after the the hacking group called “Impact Team” might now be changing their motto to, hope you got screwed, because now you really are.

Well at least we know none of the .gov email accounts belong to Hillary, so she can avoid at least one scandal.

Ashley Madison website

Thousands of clients using the affair-oriented Ashley Madison website listed email addresses registered to the White House, top federal agencies and military branches, a data dump by hackers revealed.

The detailed data, released Tuesday, will likely put Washington, D.C., on edge. The nation’s capital reportedly has the highest rate of membership for the site of any city.

Indeed, more than 15,000 of the email addresses used to register accounts were hosted on government and military servers.

Buried in the list are emails that could be tied to multiple administration agencies, including the State Department and Department of Homeland Security, as well as several tied to both the House and Senate.  

For a month, hackers using the name “Impact Team” have been holding hostage the dating profiles of those who registered on the site. The group threatened to publicly out the potential adulterers if the site’s owner, Avid Life Media, didn’t take down Ashley Madison, which uses the tagline, “Life is short. Have an affair.”

Security researchers said on Wednesday that they believe the data released following the hack at Ashley Madison is authentic.

“This dump appears to be legit,” said David Kennedy, CEO of information security company TrustedSec, which monitors cyber attacks, in a blog post. “Very, very legit.”

UPDATE I: Family Values Activist Josh Duggar Had a Paid Ashley Madison Account.

Good grief, seriously? As if Josh didn’t have enough issues with inappropriately touching his sisters as a teen. How this? According to The Daily Mail, Josh Duggar revealed as having ‘paid almost $1,000 for multiple Ashley Madison accounts’ as 37 million would-be love-cheats are named by hackers who stole Ashley Madison accounts.

But data released online in the wake of the hack on Ashley Madison’s servers certainly seems to show otherwise. Someone using a credit card belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by his grandmother Mary—a home that was consistently shown on their now-cancelled TV show, and in which Anna Duggar gave birth to her first child—paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015.

Family Values Activist Josh Duggar Had a Paid Ashley Madison Account

According to the data, Josh Duggar was paying Ashley Madison in order to find an extramarital partner for the following acts:

“Conventional Sex,” Experimenting with Sex Toys,” One-Night Stands,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Gentleness,” “Good With Your Hands,” Sensual Massage,” “Extended Foreplay/Teasing,” “Bubble Bath for 2,” “Likes to Give Oral Sex,” “Likes to Receive Oral Sex,” “Someone I Can Teach,” “Someone Who Can Teach Me,” “Kissing,” “Cuddling & Hugging,” “Sharing Fantasies,” “Sex Talk.”

Donald Trump Instagram VIDEO Rips Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton … “Politicians are Having Fun on Your Dime While the World is Buring”

LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM … DONALD TRUMP IS SAYING WHAT MOST AMERICANS ARE THINKING AND ITS RESONATING …

Yesterday Donald Trump released a 15 second Instagram video that was both hard hitting and remarkable in many ways. First, in the age of new social media, this video that cost literally nothing to make and produce and reached many views as other campaigns spend thousands on highly produced TV ads. Second, Trump blistered both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as having fun and a grand old time juxtaposed to images of ISIS’s Jihadi John cutting innocent individuals heads off and the Consulate burning in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Stevens.

The message, “politicians are having fun on your dime as the world burns”. This is so powerful and effective because that is exactly what many Americans believe, but have no platform to say it. Enter Donald Trump and his brash, over the top, take no prisons style. But the GOP establishment is worried about his tone. Most Americans say, screw the tone, we want results and we want politicians working for We the People, not taking advantage of the perks of their political office. Why does it seem that Barack Obama has played more golf since he has been president than Tiger Woods, Babba Watson and Jordan Spieth? Believe it or not it has been 219 times after he has continuously claimed he will not rest until every willing and and able American can find a job, not one single veteran falls into homelessness and until we build an economy that is ready for America’s future. How’s that working out for America? And of course with Hillary Clinton, what difference does anything make.

MLB Cyber Crime: ST. Louis Cardinals Investigated for Hacking Into Houston Astros’ Database

Forget Deflate-gate, what about HACK-GATE …

Forget about “Deflate-gate” or “Moneyball” welcome to HACK-BALL. The St. Louis cardinals find themselves in the cross-hairs of an FBI and Justice Department investigation into the allegations that they hacked into the databases of MLB’s Houston Astros. This makes Deflategate, Spygate, etc pale in comparison. Why? Because the Feds are involved. This is going to be very interesting as to where this leads. So far no one in the Cardinal organization has been suspended or fired.

MLB needed a new scandal to deal with other than PED.

HACKED

Front-office personnel for the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the most successful teams in baseball over the past two decades, are under investigation by the F.B.I. and Justice Department prosecutors, accused of hacking into an internal network of the Houston Astros to steal closely guarded information about players.

Investigators have uncovered evidence that Cardinals employees broke into a network of the Astros that housed special databases the team had built, law enforcement officials said. Internal discussions about trades, proprietary statistics and scouting reports were compromised, said the officials, who were not authorized to discuss a continuing investigation.

The officials did not say which employees were the focus of the investigation or whether the team’s highest-ranking officials were aware of the hacking or authorized it. The investigation is being led by the F.B.I.’s Houston field office and has progressed to the point that subpoenas have been served on the Cardinals and Major League Baseball for electronic correspondence.

Law enforcement officials believe the hacking was executed by vengeful front-office employees for the Cardinals hoping to wreak havoc on the work of Jeff Luhnow, the Astros’ general manager, who had been a successful and polarizing executive with the Cardinals until 2011.
