China’s HUGE New Year’s Eve Windows Hack Attack Targets Millennial Democrats.

I’d just like to thank you, China. By including me in yesterday’s massive, personally motivated anti-Windows hack attack, as covered yesterday by Forbes Magazine, you gave me the best present anyone ever has, in this whole ten-year period. Furthermore, you used a Russian ransomware virus, but a variant of it created by yourselves, hinting strongly that you and Russia were in on this together-which I’ve also been saying for years. Proof of what you’re up to is not easy to find.

You really made my decade and my New Year.

I’ve been working on showing the world, China, what your horrible hacker jackals have been trying and failing to do to me for years, ever since the sonic attacks that injured our diplomats while visiting your country.

China Will Likely Be 2020’s Main Hacking Actor, Not Russia! Be Alert!

Last fall we did that piece telling the world to watch out for Chinese disinformation actors in the 2020 electoral cycle, perhaps beyond even the Russians- who are continuing to infest the Instagram community of Pete Buttigieg, even now.

This is from a second alt-right troll on Instagram, @harold.balls. But it’s got a certain horrifying logic about it too. “Be like Pete” is just creepy. Joker creepy.

But no matter how many failed attempts or brute-force attacks you’ve made against my website, it’s been an uphill battle telling the world what Microsoft and the Trump administration has not wanted to admit- that you, and not Russia, is the most skillful and numerous of our cyber-adversaries.

Then came yesterday’s one-two punch, which certainly did unsettle me for a few hours- with pure excitement.

First, there’s the unbelievably powerful malware my dear good Windows Defender Firewall caught you trying to use on one of my honeypot computers.

You didn’t think I’d leave the back door unlocked on a computer I actually use, did you, silly China? Boy, howdy. It’s called a honey trap for a reason, Ping-Pong. I caught you with a hunk of junk put together from spare parts in twenty minutes. Learn how to read.

(Speaking of reading, folks, this story’s in two parts, and therefore nowhere near as long as it looks; the second part is really just for specialists. Do with it as you please, the two halves are clearly delineated.)

This was an unreal discovery. That is military-grade ransomware you’re looking at there, folks. The fearsome Cerber virus. They tried to hit me with CERBER. I know how they did it, too; our tech guy baited them with a proxy network. He left the door open for them, the slobs. They came right in- and got caught red-handed.

I still can’t believe that an indy journalist like me, one who is not even getting paid to write their thoughts down, is being targeted by this level of resources. Even at this late stage in the game, Cerber is used to take huge hospitals hostage, not single citizens. Out of every piece of malware known to man, only the Stuxnet virus, which can send nuclear reactor cores into meltdown, is more terrible. Even the Botnet virus is not considered as dangerous. This is no kiddie script. Someone who sends that at you is not messing around. They hate you.

They personally hate you.

It has been confirmed that the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) has been tracking a hacking campaign against Windows users. Unlike recent threats involving zero-day vulnerabilities facing Windows users, this time the danger is a lot more personal.

Along with the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center (MSTIC), the DCU has been monitoring an advanced persistent threat (APT) [Editor’s note- APT37 is the group I correctly identified as being behind my site’s cyber-targeting last fall when warning our community to watch out for the Chinese in 2020] hacking group operating an extensive criminal network to compromise accounts and steal data.

Who is behind the Microsoft Windows attack campaign?

The threat group behind these cyber-attacks is thought to be based in North Korea and has been named as “Thallium” by Microsoft and is also known as APT37. The hacking group appears to have been targeting government employees, university staff, those working on nuclear proliferation issues, as well as world peace and human right. The majority of those targeted were based in the U.S. but Microsoft has confirmed individuals in Japan and South Korea also found themselves in the hacking crosshairs.

So I’ve been doing research on this all day, of course, and had planned to write something up about it soon anyway. But then around nine at night, I saw this about Microsoft attacks in this Forbes story released and came to understand it was not just me. Still, there were only a few hundred of us targeted, for personal and political reasons, out of a world of seven billion people.

It’s like a dark matter Pulitzer Prize.

Objectively speaking, it’s kind of a big deal. It represents a drastic escalation compared to what they’ve tried with me before. Hacking a website is still personal, even as a vast campaign of attacks meant to traumatize the whole free world’s community, but this is far worse.

I decoyed them, and they bit. As hard as they could. Like a striking snake.

They followed who they thought was me down a dark alley network, and tried to take me, prisoner. I wonder who the others they attacked were? The Forbes article said everyone targeted was a human rights and freedom activist, one they’d been stalking and preparing to savage for years. We should all get together.

Microsoft hit them back, and so did we. They got their asses kicked, too. I have said it before, and I’ll say it again. Don’t mess with the US, and least of all with American Democrats.

This will raise morale in our community, folks. The global elite has just been shown its hot cross buns again. They have money and resource advantages, yes, but in terms of personnel, they are the disadvantaged ones. They are NOT invincible and they CAN be beaten, by regular people, just like you and me- although, as a matter of fact, anyone who doesn’t specialize in the topic may want to stop here. It’s going to get technical. Those who would like to know more about our methodology are welcome to continue down below, where our tech guy will give you the whole story.

Going forward, whether or not we are technical specialists, we can thank our brave technical staff for taking this risk for us, and protect ourselves in the usual manner- by not clicking on strange links, and not opening strange emails. We cannot stress enough just how dangerous things are going to be for the rest of a year that began in so dramatic a fashion-and is guaranteed to get even worse.

Look after yourselves and every Democrat. A lot of us have been dying and disappearing, and we already know what killers our opponents are. This ransomware is bad stuff; fastcompany.com called it No. 2 on their Five Most Dystopian Technologies of the Decade List. You do not want to play games on it. Putin, Xi, and Trump will stop at nothing and shirk no dirty work- but that doesn’t mean they’re winning. Just the opposite, in fact. Ours is the stronger side and always will be, so long as we insist on it.

Happy New Year, Democratic family, from your friends here at Millennial Democrats!

Why Lying is Bad-Donald Trump’s Impeachment Is Going Forward.

Greetings, readers of recent events! It’s been a while since I’ve had time to stop by here. Here’s a few words about why- and also, a few words as to how it all ties in with the impeachment of Donald Trump, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced around noon on Thursday would definitely proceed.

Ultimately, what the whole Ukrainegate scandal comes down to is that lying is bad and the illegitimate president lied. Trump is a terrible, unrepentant liar. He’s a totally unfit role model for American children. It’s for their sake that he has got to go.

Here at Millennial Democrats, the anti-disinformation war is central to our very purpose; we call that division MD-DissectFake. It is why we exist. To say, as people are doing in the disinformation age, that the truth no longer matters enough to fight for, and that in fact we now live in a post-truth reality in which Americans no longer value their values, is to speak pure evil and embrace a descent into nihilism and destability. Never that.

We have answered those people firmly today in announcing Trump’s impeachment will go on.

Donald Trump, with his unrepentant falsehoods on the subject of his now-infamous attempt to leverage Ukraine, withholding key funds needed for their war against Russia who has robbed them, has disgraced our country, as have the vitriolic rants against the whistleblower who brought this to America’s attention. Simply stated, this had to be done. No one is above the law in a country without kings, not even the President.

If that is not worth fighting for then nothing is.

Don’t let anyone tell you this is just partisan politics or a witch hunt, either. Pelosi never wanted to impeach Trump. She fought it every way she could for years, and we helped her, because of one key factor. We didn’t have enough yet, which sadly was still the case even after Robert Mueller‘s Russiagate investigation had concluded. Vladimir Putin laughingly said that it was as though a mountain had given birth to a mouse, which of course is what he wants to think.

This is how we know Vladimir Putin is beatable.

What Mueller’s investigation actually was, the perspective time brings us has helped us to understand, represented a vast foundation, something we could build a case upon so big it would one day dwarf Trump Tower.

At the time I predicted that a Donald Trump now flabbergasted with relief would soon find his worst instincts bolstered by an unrestrained ego, one he is nowhere near self-aware enough to realize. I was sure that sooner or later, something would happen where he’d bite off more than he could chew, and go down after all.

Sure enough, it did, and far faster than anyone figured.

When he told the President of Ukraine he needed him to open an unnecessary and spurious investigation into the son of former Vice President and most likely by far 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Joseph Bissonette Biden, Jr., Trump self-administered a slow-acting poison to his presidency. It is killing him even now.

“I need you to do me a favor though” will prove to be famous last words, like the ones never spoken by the doomed General Custer at the Little Bighorn.

I knew that if that day ever came, the 448-page morass of the Mueller Report (link provided) would be waiting for him, to catch him when he falls. It’ll gather flowers constantly, and will come whenever he calls. The Mueller Report would be there to open his each and every door.

It ain’t me you’re looking for, babe.

Not even close.

The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday voted to send their own voluminous report on Trump’s conduct to the Judiciary Committee, who in turn will physically write the articles of impeachment against Trump. Oh good, I thought, happy to be heading back up this way. Time to go hit Donald Trump again and topple him, like the statue of the founder of the Cheka, his poll numbers be damned.

I wouldn’t miss this for the world.

The importance of fighting disinformation is to me so basic that it’s engraved in my spirit at this point, and Trump’s horrid Ukraine behavior is the biggest reason why that I can think of. It is all along the same timeline as Russiagate and their interference in our 2020 election. Here at Millennial Democrats, we realize fully the necessity of fighting for the inclusion of honesty in the canon of American values, and I have been preparing.

For the last several years, more than twelve hundred hacking attempts have been made against this blog by radicals who do not agree with what I’m saying. They are politically motivated, and they’re running a vast Radical Disinformation Pipeline. Trump hit us hard using that channel many times, particularly damaging were the WikiLeaks email dumps of 2016. They will continue supporting him all through next year, and the heat is just beginning.

It’s time for us to fight back. By the way, a friend of ours will be launching a Technology Corps very soon, a nonprofit called Truth in Vision-Research and Tech Corps. Check it out; I think you will find it’s up to standards.

Just earlier this week, the Russians came back on social media, Instagram to be exact, and are now busily infesting the campaign of Pete Buttigieg, who has taken no action. This just started, and you folks are some of the first to know. Warn everyone you can; the moment we’ve been training for has come. Stay ready.

Going forward, we’ve got to remind people of what we’re fighting both for and against and stay true to our values, because getting rid of Trump becomes worthless if we’re just going to do the same that he is. Democrats are better than this. And very soon in court, we’re going to show the world why lying is bad-by paying Donald Trump the full wages of his crimes.
