ALERT!!! DonaldJTrump.com Is On A Server In Putin’s Backyard! HOURS LEFT TO TELL THE WORLD.

This is Maltego, everyone. It is our opinion we have much to be grateful to it for. It has given us the silver bullets we’ve been waiting on to free us from the monsters who have taken over our country. Donald Trump’s website tried to hack me yesterday, but I didn’t end up looking at the email from beloved Sucuri, the security plugin. We get all our IP addresses from hackers. I had a hunch just where to look to see who it connected to.

This is Maltego, network fingerprinting tool extraordinaire and made by the beloved Paterva.

As it worked out, my hunch was absolutely right.

Thank Maltego, everyone. It gave us our silver bullet. Neither Trump nor Bernie ran the last election’s campaign with honor.

Now we pay them back for it.

So as all of you know, we here at Millennial Democrats have been covering the story of how #FarLeftIsAltRight pretty much since it began. We’ve had plenty of low-level circumstantial proof all this time, enough so that we who’ve been around a lot know who is on the level and who is not. We have known all this was real since then, but sadly, even after Robert Mueller’s two year long Russiagate investigation concluded, we did not have the proof. Not the ironclad stuff we really needed.

As of about three hours ago, that finally changed. Donald Trump’s website is linked directly to Vladimir Putin’s, as well as Guccifer 2,0’s and gwbush.com which is Zack Exley’s site. I cannot tell you people how surreal that was; everything I’ve ever hoped for and never expected or even thought in my wildest dreams. See for yourselves.

They were ALL there. Tencent from China, Namecheap from Los Angeles (Igor Efimenko), everybody. All the hackers I have really seen a lot.

They’re even sharing a network with OVH, whose owner, billionaire Octave Klaba, was the one operating the Trik Spam Botnet a few years back. It’s right there on his network.

43 million emails, it stole and then botched and exposed to the world. Then Mirai botnet hit them- an obvious deflection, and insurance scam besides. Now, worst of all, I have every reason to believe they’ll be coming for us very soon with a third botnet attack. They are massing for it all along the perimeter of the entire outer circle of the network. You’ve never seen anything uglier.

Maltego gives them red shapes fashioned after depth charges. Here’s some more.

It’s crazy to think we’ve got to face this, but at least this time we know it’s coming- and, in fact, is already here in at least two places- Seattle’s Emerald Ocean (another frequent hack attemptee of mine) and the server of Trump himself.

They have also acquired a great many Facebook servers; that also cannot be good news.

If Robert Mueller would have known what we do now- if he had gotten on that server and seen what is there, the whole entire event would have ended differently.

Not all of the evidence you’ll be seeing tonight is from Maltego, either, but has been confirmed by a variety of other tools and persons including my security plugin Sucuri, whois.com, a network scanning program called Nmap, and a search engine that only searches for devices, Shodan. Digital evidence does not lie; hear, therefore, what it has to say.

God, it’s unreal. I got Trump and Bernie in the same week, and both by examining their websites. First Zack Exley (Bern) at gwbush,com and now this. This is just too much good luck to hope for.

Silver bullets. baby.

All right, moving on. This is www.donaldjtrump.com, the website that tried hacking me today. Good old Sucuri caught them just like all the rest- and it turns out they are ALL connected.

VERY weird stuff around it. On September 9, 2015 they bought numerous blank domain names and have left them dormant since.

Whois.com had no data whatsoever which I have never seen before, but a simple Nmap scan revealed them to be present, even with some ports open.

It is impossible to say just what, but one thing is certain. They are hiding something.

Raising awareness has always been the goal. Now, for the FIRST TIME, we have something to raise awareness about. This will kick the opposition down a well. Going forward, the task is clear. We have to tell everyone in the world what we now know. If we can make this story news somehow before this evening this whole thing just might turn around for us. Stranger things have happened, and miracles do exist.

We’ll keep hoping- but all the while, we’ll be working on taking Ben Franklin’s old adage to heart.

“God helps those who help themselves.”

On that note, Democratic family, we might as well get to it.

To Brandon the Impostor, Millennial Democrat Who Isn’t- Words of Welcome and Warning.

Will the real Millennial Democrats please stand up? 
Readers mine, it’s been a long four years, and no mistake is possible to make about it. Long, and ugly. The second week of 2020 is now underway, and the opposition is turning up the pressure now for all that they are worth. New tactics abound daily; we’re seeing a virtual onslaught from every angle- but, fear not, Democratic family, because we’re used to it by now. A lowly impostor aping my website is not the worst I’ve seen- but there is an intimacy to such an escalation that I once again find rather terrifying- not to mention truly irritating.

“Welcome! At Millennial Democrats, we are responding to millennial concerns and getting involved in the political process as millennials. Our message and our stance is clear. We are Democrats. We believe in helping actual people make actual changes for the better, in their lives and in society. As the youngest generation of voters, we’re about finding new and innovative ways to do that going in to the future. We are going to uphold the time honored traditions of Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama, by finding new ways to do good for the people living in the world. There is a reasonable alternative to the pandemonium created by the current administration. Please join us in the task of helping the concept evolve.” -Millennial Democrats, 7/17.

That, as most of you will recognize, is this site’s Home Page, its introductory paragraph. There have been signs before that people dig how I set up the site, with the city of New York and all; just seemed to fit, although my true interest here lies in the writing. It became obvious that this was the plan right from the top of their new Page, where they ripped off my language in the most shameless and inferior fashion.
“Millennial Democrats represent a group unlike any the US political process has ever seen. This organization is made up of volunteers who want to impact the political process and are tired of politics as usual. We are responding to the millennial generation’s concerns and are getting involved in the political process. We have learned from the history of Franklin Roosevelt, Barack Obama, and even politicians like Abraham Lincoln that there are alternatives to tribal politics: rational activism.” -an anonymous Brandon De Graff, speaking as the Impostor Millennial Democrats.org.
It’s not even subtle. I began looking into the website’s owner. It didn’t quite take me twenty minutes to find him. Or if it was over, it was just over:) I found his girlfriend and everything. Her name doesn’t need to get published here.
Yet.
So the natural question begs itself. What are the haps with that website?
I’m going to make an example out of this one.
Today a teammate and close friend brought me a meme made by Kaivan Shroff, the guy who does the very first Millennial_Dems on Twitter and also, I believe, on Instagram. I will freely admit I came in second in the beginning by about two weeks, it’s how we ended up MD-America on Facebook and Twitter.
Kaivan’s all right, we have similar moderate views and have always managed to comfortably co-exist. When I found out the meme was his I relaxed there, we know each other and follow each other on Twitter. I intend to reach out for collaboration one of these days, two independents with good hearts and a will to speak truth to power.
It would have been nice to have Brandon’s help too, but that’s not how this story goes.
As we write these words, the Iranian trouble is kicking into overdrive, impeachment is kicking off, and all of it is being handled in the most shoddy, slipshod, slovenly, sloppy and nowhere near secretive enough manner. Hezbollah has killed several Americans already (not that Tulsi Gabbard will bother to condemn her own best buddies), Iran is firing missiles at us, Iraq has firmly handed us an eviction notice for our soldiers and through it, all, above the din, rises the high reedy voice of Donald Trump, screeching at us to trust in the intelligence community. In short, the saga continues, half dystopia and half tragicomedy, bordering on hysteria.
One does not know whether to laugh or to cry.
Of course, this all raises a fairly basic question- MD, what are you screwing around for? There’s big shit in the news! This can wait, can’t it? Shouldn’t you be writing about Iran?
Quick answer? Of course, I should, and so I have been. It’s basically done, tomorrow’s article, covering the whole story in as succinct a tone as I can muster- a remarkably difficult task given the complexity of writing about Middle Eastern power dynamic, but one I’ll gladly tackle every time I get a chance. It is a perfect microcosm of what is going on everywhere for Democrats large and small. Foreign hackers, domestic trolls no less vicious, elected politicians of both Parties, and all the big money in America without are targeting us every single day.
Just the same, it’s got to wait until tomorrow. I’m making a point with this article, a simple one, and that is this. When they target our social media accounts and silence our voices, they are taking out the only weapons in the whole civil rights arsenal we can really use with safety and daring both, and this, of course, cannot be allowed. We already know the Iranian Cyber Army cannot be far away. It’s only a matter of time.
When the Northern Kurds of Syria were hit by the Turkish the day Trump left them hanging last fall, it wasn’t long before dying humans were reaching out to the world, sharing footage desperately of the atrocities committed in those hours in the hopes of exciting enough world outrage for the killing to stop. I’m proud to say I’m among the people chosen to spread those videos, and I did. The same thing happened last week when Iranian general Soleimani was killed. I was brought the video without even asking before 24 hours had gone by. Those things would never have happened for me had it not been for the online digital awareness-raising mouthpiece I have built.
Visibility in politics is our greatest defense against the literal one-world police-state the monopolist elite are building, and this we get through social media also; in fact, even such monumental events as the Arab Spring could never have taken place without Twitter. This is why in addition to my website Mariah Carey’s Twitter account was targeted by the Chinese on New Year’s Eve. It is not a game at all. We get our power here.
So when someone decides to target your work like this fakir of a Bernie Bot has me, it means they are trying to disarm you completely. In a world where the true struggles between sovereign states are all on social media now; there are no “hot wars” (meaning straightforward military battles) worth fighting, this cannot be allowed.
It was just over 24 hours ago when I happened to Google my website, the first time I’ve had to do so in quite a while. I half-fooled myself. It actually took a moment to take in fully what I was seeing: a second Millennial Democrats WordPress blog, gussied up to look as much like mine here as possible. Surreal as it seems, the fact is undeniable. An impostor has suddenly popped up online, and is using my name and my brand to mislead and waylay our people.
This too cannot be allowed.
It was very strange to see my work thus aped and replicated, by a smug little weasel who is thinking to ride my coattails and eat crumbs from my table to live. Strange and upsetting, in fact. I wasn’t expecting it at all and indeed had no idea it existed. Before today it’s been a bit since I needed to Google myself, and this whole time before there’s only ever just been two of us Millennial Democrats, both myself, seen today on top, and the Millennial_Dems who are a bit older than us. We get along fine. But this guy in the middle? He’s new, and he’s up to no good. His name is Brandon, his last name probably isn’t De Graff, and this is his picture.
Bernie Sanders is Brandon the Impostor’s choice for: The Best Candidate for 2020- but on his Page, however, he tries acting undecided.
He is baiting people off of Facebook onto Reddit and undoubtedly worse places later. That’s my big thing, you know; he’s cloaking his predatory instincts with my work and aesthetic.
Ever read that old Stephen King novella, Secret Window, Secret Garden?
You stole my story, Brandon, so to speak. That’s patently unacceptable, and more so for you than for me.
Those who use their strength and wit to poison and destroy their fellow children of God are damned. Change your ways now, for soon it will be too late. You’d better do some thinking about what I could have done to you if I weren’t so nice a guy. The next guy you try to pillage and rob may not be so forgiving.
I could have chosen many other pictures, including some I found in a certain kind of registry database, the kind you do NOT want your job finding out about; those pictures are in an as-of-yet unpublished, sort of, unabridged article, you might say; I like to think it’ll be Brandon’s choice whether or not that one comes out.
But I chose this one, with full respect to the JW Cassel in the brave post calling him out, because it came along with a real Democrat’s completely correct opinion of him as a lousy piece of garbage, one who voted for Jill Stein out of Bernie or Bust resentment.
The latest Tweets from BC DeGraff (@BrandonDegraff1). Don’t follow me if you’re not a Bernie Supporter. I’m NOT a Democrat. I’m not a Republican. I’m a Progressive writer.
Which is to say, he prison shanked the United States. Right in the guts.
For shame, Brandon. To stoke an unfair grudge this far. Cultivated for no good reason except sexism, deniable only because of Jill Stein’s milkwater gender. You lit your country on fire. We agree on one thing, at least; there’s not a Democratic bone in your body. But since you have decided to step up and claim your false flag title, please allow me to bring you up to speed.
A Democrat will stop at absolutely nothing. I think you are likely to regret, sir, your decision not to ape someone else’s hard work instead of mine.
I found him by Googling the large hashtag on the site’s front page- which sure does look a lot like my site’s front page-#ANYFUNCTIONINGADULT, itself this year’s Vote Blue No Matter Who.
That brought me to two Facebook Pages with the same name, one big, one little. It must have been the big one he made on purpose. The little one appears to be the default landing place for his Reddit threads, and that’s where he biffed it. I soon found the same comments were posted on Reddit. A few more back and forths and around the net later and I had everything.
They are going to muddy our waters by pretending to be us and capitalize on all our hard work for free, all the while diluting and perverting our message with all the Bern-feeling drivel they can muster. Just look at the Friends List on this guy.
Worst I’ve seen since Oliver the Macedonian, Brandon the Impostor. You guys should join pro wrestling and be a tag team- or join the President’s Cabinet.
These pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook groups were all partially run by Macedonian hacker Oliver Mitov, who may or may not even exist.
These pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook groups were all partially run by Macedonian hacker Oliver Mitov, who may or may not even exist.
Jesus God. That’s not just feeling the Bern. That’s positively molesting him.
From there I found a Facebook Page by the same name, and from there a Reddit account that appears to be managing a subreddit for Rachel Maddow, one u/akacats. It appears fraudulent, to understate the point unto ludicrousness.
It did not take long to realize I was down the Bern rabbit hole again, and it also didn’t take long to realize I most probably had found me a big juicy bunny, too.
Any Functioning Adult. I wonder which one of the usual suspects came up with this one? This kind of crap goes around every year; it’s nothing but a cheap trick, a way to get real Democrats to drop their guard. Last time it was Vote Blue No Matter Who.
Bernie’s people are not Democrats and take great pride in the ignominious fact; they’re more like carjackers, bullies, and thugs like the guy in the image I used for this article. That’s why he’s come sniffing around trying to steal my work. He made some lousy movie about the Bernie or Bust movement; if I can find a pirated copy or make a fresh one, I’ll give it a watch. The whole last four years have been like having the flu anyway; what’re a few extra retches among friends and Millennial Democrats? Brandon’s friend below who uses that button as her avatar at least had the capacity to be honest about that, which is more than I will say for him.
It just goes to show; if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em- or, if that’s not an option because you’re a radical, impersonate them and waylay those who support them. He’s put this honey trap out there to punish and hurt you, loyal readers, to get to me. They’ll continue doing this kind of crap, too, unless I can find a way to make such a course of action unpalatable for them.
So that’s what I’ve been working on. All evening, in fact.
The many Bernie Bots I showed earlier were most of his friends, of course. But the usual alt-right types were there in dreadful plenty also. That Any Functioning Adult 2020, ostensibly imploring us to recognize Donald Trump as the greatest threat, the only threat worth considering, is entitled to its opinion, of course; I thought the same myself in 2016, as I said before.
But if she is a sincere Democrat, and it’s nothing but policy differences dividing her and us, what in God’s holy name is she up to supporting the Brexit?
Regular readers of this blog will not be suspicious when I tell them there’s more of this kind of thing; a lot more. did find some things to write about what they might find inconveniencing, although of course nothing malicious or illegal.
Just good, old fashioned open-source intelligence can give you all the dirt you need- or cleanliness, in this case. Clear, pristine, virgin cleanliness. Got to hand it to ya, Brandon. You’re a regular Peter the Hermit where that subject is concerned. Sh4rki would be proud.
Brandon De Graff, this is your cue to start listening.
#AltRightIsFarLeft; this is just one more bitter ratf*cking testimonial.  You seem to know this quite well judging by who your friends are, Mr. Akacats on Reddit. But always remember where there’s life, there’s hope. You have been deep in the counsel of the enemy,  There is much good you could still do. Come back to the path of reason. Talk to me, we’ll help you tell your old friends to go to hell. There’s just one thing, really. As a sign of good faith, I’ll be needing you to take the fake website down or I will have to keep digging; if this is what I found after 20 minutes, what would I find in a month?
Civil political discourse is one thing; welcome to the arena, but be warned now: you have crossed the tideline out into dark waters. Do not make me sink you there.

 

 

 

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!
