Raggedy Bernie Sanders Will Never Be President. Joe Biden Will- A Countdown To Iowa.

Bernie Sanders is not going to be our President. One look at him is enough to tell you that; Americans love a winner, and that is not a role Bernie can play. Then after you hear him yelling, you can doubly forget it. Regardless of all the endless dollars that have poured into his creation, regardless of his fanatical following’s ferocity, Bern is a bust just as much now as he was in 2016. Democrats will come together behind literally anybody else, but we want nothing to do with the Bern. He’s a chickenhawk, scam and aggressive panhandler all rolled into one, like a prestigious university dual major, I can’t wait for the day I stop having to even write his name. I’m sorry the day came when I had to start.

On the other hand, Senator Joseph Bissonette Biden of Delaware, father, former vice-president, and all-around good guy, has the best of all possible chances. He will get a chance to demonstrate tonight once again why he’s in a league of his own when compared to the rest.

Tonight the final Democratic debates of the pre-Iowa caucus season are here, and the only thought on my mind is to protect the primary by any necessary means. We can’t let things get too out of hand or it’ll be 2016 all over again. Bernie, who is either foolish or evil for even running again, since he knows no true Democrat will ever accept him as their Party’s leader, kicked things off in his usual bullying style with a surprisingly vicious attack on his old friend Elizabeth Warren, a fight that has been coming for some time. They are now squabbling like a pair of aged turkeys jostling for feed, the alfalfa pellets that are so reminiscent of neo-progressive voters.

Joe Biden, like Hillary Clinton, knows better than to get deeply involved. Let them have at each other, what a blast. He won’t bother engaging with Bern since nothing good can possibly end up coming out of it. Bern is Murphy’s Law weaponized and given human form. His idea of philosophy is, Anything that can go wrong will go wrong- because as soon as I get the power, it will all be smashed to bloody smithereens by Great Destroyer me! Scourge of the millionaires and billionaires.

We weren’t aware back then, but the Bern is a millionaire too. Jesus God.

After the zoo that has been the last four awful years, the country needs to heal. We have to somehow find a way to cope with and process all that we’ve been through. Not one but two demagogues showed up, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, and both shattered tranquility anywhere they could find it. All of us on every side have essentially been living in hell, and need nothing now so much as a little peace of mind and peace and quiet; we’ve been dancing on quicksand all this time. We need the measured, sane leadership of Joe Biden.

There’s no real beginning or end to the list of Bernie’s blunders, models all of gross insensitiveness, inefficiency, and intellect-free decision making. Remember that one time he started ripping up President Obama- whose dirty sweat socks were more capable and well-spoken than the Bern- on Martin Luther King Jr. Day? What a slap in the face of America’s black community that was, the very people that he now begs and cajoles for support. He is an embarrassing liability to every cause he claims somehow to espouse.

We can knock this one out of the park without even mentioning 2016. It has been a long three years with this guy.

How about the time he tried accepting a keynote speaker’s invitation from the foulmouthed and bestial Linda Sarsour, who wants to “take away” the vaginas of other women, to appear at the Women’s Convention of 2017? When American women found out and made their feelings known, Bern backed out so fast you’d have thought he’d seen a ghost. He did the same thing at the Women’s March later that year, with the same result, showing he has no respect for women at all.

This is why his women’s rights record reads like an excerpt from Stag Magazine- on purpose.

Quoth St. Bernard,

“A man goes home and masturbates, to his usual fantasy- A woman tied up, a woman on her knees, a woman abused. A woman enjoys intercourse with her man- as she fantasizes being raped by three men simultaneously.”

“Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like ‘Girl of 12 raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?”

Who are we nominating for president again? Judge Roy Moore of Alabama? It’s clear Bernie knows to what they are appealing, at any rate, and why not? He always has the answers, to everything!

It has really been a long few years.

The first election of the primary season will be the same as it is every year, the Iowa caucus. This year it will be held on February 3; just three short weeks away. It is the first step on the way out of the miniature Dark Ages that terrible 2016 became- but it is not a critical one. Iowan voters have let themselves go haywire good in the past. The Bern’s overperformance there last time empowered and encouraged his tilting at windmills campaign, as did his expected victory in New Hampshire. Hope springs eternal in the human heart, they say, especially when hundreds of millions of dollars were spent to put it there, and for one special moment, they truly believed they could win.

Then the voting down South started, and all that was gone like the mirage of an oasis, Hillary Clinton’s lead became insurmountable instantly, and every week it just got worse. So did the behavior of his followers, who soon displayed the racism and sexism their foul breed is known for, every chance they got. Considering that their master once wrote something like this rape essay here- for fun, I might add, on his leisure time no less, can we really be surprised that not very long from his defeat in July of 2016, one of them put this picture up on the door of a black church?

This is what we're fighting.
This is who they are, these far leftists we’re constantly attacked and assaulted by. These will be the people running the government if ridiculous Bern should stumble out a win.

By Super Tuesday Bern was in dire straits, and within the next few races, it became clear to any sane observer of sense that the jig was really up. His devotees, not yet completely insane prior to April, shrieked and howled at the moon like so many hyenas and wolves, and soon they resolved to bern down anything they couldn’t conquer- which was pretty much everything. Likewise, they made common cause with the Russians and their Macedonian flunkies, like Oliver Mitov here.

These pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook groups were all partially run by Macedonian hacker Oliver Mitov, who may or may not even exist.

As you may have guessed by now, Bernie’s foreign policy has a lot to do with the Russians he was boozing it up with in the video of his honeymoon below, a presidential display if ever there was one. Putin definitely felt the Bern and maybe hopes one day to feel some more of him. This ad he put out on Facebook for the Bern suggests it’s grossly possible.

This is Buff Bernie, a Russian rendition. Notice the poorly worded and clearly unnatural English they have here. This was typical, and precisely what caught my attention in the first place.

Buff Bernie, for the love of all creation. You don’t know whether to go blind or-

Well, fill in the blank.

Why someone would have spent his honeymoon in Russia, hanging out with a bunch of men, I do not pretend to know. A sodden intoxication, yowling Woody Guthrie songs with Communists in the Soviet Union, shirtless and disheveled and the most slovenly sight I’ve ever seen.

Judge for yourself.

You’ve got yourself a classic there, Bern. I can’t tell you how much I’m feeling you right now. Perhaps you and Putin and Vitali Shkliarov, another skeevy Ruskie working on your “central to the Russian interference plot” campaign, will all go out a-wassailing next Christmas, or at the next Russian military parade.

You should have been on trial beside Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort, Bern, or at least testifying against him like your old campaign manager Tad Devine. You admitted blatantly to having known the Russians were involved in helping you and hurting Hillary Clinton when the whole world knows you sat idle and did not a thing to help.

You knew, Bern. The country was in danger, our electoral process was being used by foreigners as toilet paper, and the whole world was laughing at us. You are supposed to be our next commander-in-chief, which means it’s your job to protect this country, all of it. But you said nothing. Then later, in that interview, you lied on TV and said you lot had sent warning specifically; that was nothing but a joke from our perspective, the people who stayed to nail things down when your lunatic band of foreign and robotic Merry Men summoned a tornado down on us all. Just so we understand each other, you are nothing but a traitor. And your brat supporters false-reported the tweet offline.

Why have we been saddled with this moldy albatross around our necks, O Lord? Take this cup from us-please!

Any examination of Bernie’s record reveals him as a fraud. He boasts that he is not a Democrat and is brazenly appallingly proud of it. He voted against the Brady Bill five times. He once shoved his wife out of the way, on a stage in front of a crowd, at a campaign event because she talked for too long. “Don’t stand next to me!” he shouted at her like an animal.  He was the most libertarian candidate in the 2016 race. His campaign had more than a dozen Federal Election Commission violations. His foreign policy talk about Iraq is misleading since he had nothing to lose by voting no and since his record is full of other hawkishness, including fervent support of the Serbian bombings of Kosovo he reviled Hillary Clinton for. The big problem we had in 2016 is that no one bothered to vet Bernie much because he was such a weak candidate, he should have just collapsed like MoveOn.org’s other pick, Martin O’Malley. We didn’t know who or what we were up against last time. Now we do.

And we do not intend on forgetting.

With thanks to Alternet for the writing and the data.

The attack on Kosovo is hardly the extent of Sanders’ hawkishness.
While it’s true he voted against the Iraq war, he voted in favor of
authorizing funds for that war and the one in Afghanistan. More
recently, he voted in favor of a $1 billion aid package for the coup
government in Ukraine and supported Israel’s assault on Gaza. At a
town hall meeting he admitted that Israel may have “overreacted,” but
he blamed Hamas for the entire conflict. When an audience member asked
why he refused to condemn Israel’s actions, he told critics: “Excuse
me! Shut up! You don’t have the microphone.”

Hey, Bern! Why didn’t you condemn Russia’s actions? Remember all those times you refused to vote to sanction them? Disgusting. This old failure has passed three bills in three decades, folks, and two of them were for renaming local post offices. Talk about spunk and American initiative, boy. What a hard worker he is, this man who never had a job at all until age thirty-seven. How people figured a guy who’d spent half his life in the Congress was a political outsider back then I will never understand.

Foreign policy is an area in which the Biden/Bernie gap becomes a chasm, a gaping abyss. The ancient Norse Vikings believed that all life on Earth arose from a massive Gap of Gaps, from which poisonous fumes rose like socialism and somehow created all we have. Go figure. Anyway, a gap that size is the one we’re talking about here. When it comes time to talk about fitness for the task of representing us well in the world, these two guys Biden and Bern are a ludicrous comparison to make. It’s like comparing apples to dog turds. They might as well be on different planets. We’ve got to stay focused on that and make sure everyone else does too.

By this point, parties on all sides are well aware the next six months promise a circus beyond anything P.T. Barnum ever dreamed of.

America doesn’t require or desire a return to what former President Warren G. Harding once called “a return to normalcy”, because what is normal in today’s world is a freakish caricature of what it meant thirty years ago when we were kids. Professional wrestling spilled out of our television sets and took over the world. Everything seems like a skit now, and Bernie is the perfect Heel to Trump’s Hero. Normal is probably out.

Never Bernie.

But we can have sane and decent again. Joe Biden is not a crazy socialist with a fifty trillion-dollar health care time bomb ready to set off in our economy. He knows what he’s doing in there. We have gone through too much in the Trump era for any more shenanigans from a demagogue, and we need someone capable enough to clean this whole mess up. We, center Democrats, have held the line; we became that rock in the river, tethered to a principle, and ready with a plan at every turn. These days Joe is the best representative we’ve got, which is the other half of the reasons to reject the candidacy of ridiculous and rusty Bernie Sanders.

We simply do not need the guy. Go back to writing op-eds about Saturday mail delivery, Bern, like back in 2014- when you were suddenly rebranded and made a superstar, seemingly at random…

More on that in future articles. Count on it.

In conclusion, it is not only Bernie’s incompetence and unfitness for the role that ensures he never will be President. We’ve got a better guy, one who is more popular, more polished, more professional, and just plain superior to the Bern even when he’s at his abysmal best. Joe Biden was the most recent vice-president Democrats have had, and under Barack Obama, no less, who turned out to be a genius. He has the information and skill that this will take. His unpleasant Gollum-like opponent is just plain lacking by comparison- and objectively.

While Bern was renaming post offices and little else, lounging around the Senate like the white Clarence Thomas, Biden was all over the world handling American affairs and representing her people with the utmost decorum and skill. Can he speak like John F. Kennedy? No. But that makes him all the more perfect for this time and place, in which nothing is more needed than a plainspoken, honest sort of fellow, the one your guts tell you you can trust- a No Malarkey sort if you will (check that awesome Group out on Facebook). Biden is a kind and genuine man, a finder of lost children. Bernie is the guy to lead us farther out into the wilderness. That old zombie will never, ever, EVER be the President of America, and for that, we really can be grateful.

From Millennial Democrats, starting today, look for All Biden, All The Time, until Iowa and beyond. We are in it to win it, and the day to fight in earnest together has come. You can find us without too much trouble at @MilDemsAmerica on Twitter. On Facebook, we’re Millennial Democrats- America and her fifty auxiliary State Pages. Our parent organization Organizing For Democrats has a great many Groups and Pages also, and allied organizations in the family such as the good folks at the WIRAPress Files, links shown here in blue, or the Musing Madman’s Madhouse, a blog living right next door to this one, so to speak, or talkingbarrysense.wordpress.com for another. Last, we’re newly on Instagram at millennialdemsusa. Check us out. And check out Joe Biden, while you’re at it.

I vouch for him.

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!

A Democratic Letter of Request- Russia’s Invading Buttigieg. Help Me Tell The World.

Dear Democratic Family,
It is my sincere regret to inform you all that the Russians have returned onto America’s political scene. After a nearly three year period of dormancy, they have finished hibernation, and have now popped back up en masse and in earnest in time to get a headstart on the 2020 election cycle. The campaign appears to have just begun and has manifested in a most unusual and unexpected area- the Instagram community of Pete Buttigieg.

This is @potus_pete2020, the Russian hacker whose memes, also in the picture, caught my attention and helped me catch on ahead of schedule.

This was unexpected on every level. We have known the Russians were coming, of course; Vladimir Putin himself told us that. But even so, with characteristic chessplayer cleverness, they still found a niche from where they are almost impossible to see, and they did it in a brand new way. They have never chosen to support a moderate Democrat before, in all the time this has been going on, and it calls into question the persona of this rising blue star.

The Iowa caucus will be held on February 3rd, in less than sixty days from now. Before then, Buttigieg must state openly and strongly that he does indeed intend to prioritize national security, and he must take solid action against these trolls.

In order to get him to do that, this has to be a bigger story than I can make it on my own. Therefore, online Democratic coalition, I have written every one of you this formal letter of request, asking you for help raising national and world awareness about this. Call everyone you know. Do everything you can. The peril is close to absolute.

Slandering Pete Buttigieg, accusing him of anything, or even saying we don’t like him is not our intent. The Russians could be doing this just to disgrace him; we’re not ruling that out at all, nor indeed making any fact claims except the four below. Fact stretching and wild speculation is not in accord with journalistic standards. We draw no conclusions either way save two- Mr. Buttigieg must address this situation quickly, and the media must call on him to do so. That’s the only way we’ll ever know for sure.

Below are the facts that justify my recommendation that we watch him as closely as possible.

1. Pete Buttigieg has Russians infesting his Instagram community. They have mostly been inactive in American politics since Robert Mueller charged their thirteen nationals in 2018 and are actually quite rare. They are in no other platform, which makes sense since Instagram is new and yet has a billion members already. It is also nowhere near as regulated as Facebook and is, therefore, the perfect place for hiding in plain sight, preparing their strike without fear of discovery.

2. Pete Buttigieg is a personal friend of Mark Zuckerberg, a chronic persecutor of Democrats. They went to Harvard together. After they met on October 17 of this year in a highly underpublicized meeting, he hired two staffers at Zuckerberg’s behest. Within another thirty days, Russian trolls with Buttigieg’s name on them appeared and began multiplying prolifically.

3. Pete Buttigieg spoke dismissively when Hillary Clinton put Tulsi Gabbard in the public eye for being a favorite of Russia. “Statements like that ought to be backed by evidence,” he explained.  The Cult Education Forum alone has more than a hundred pages of information on the Gabbard family’s bizarre activities. How is it possible for a guy who is said to have learned the Norwegian language while literally on the toilet to be unaware of this?

Deserving of an Honorable Mention: Pete Buttigieg won an award-winning paper all the way back in the year 2000 about none other than Bernie Sanders and what a great guy he is.

All of these save number three have business with Russia directly. There are too many red flags here to count. An exhaustive vetting process of Pete Buttigieg and his campaign must now be undertaken by the voters. 

We do have one advantage, though like a mirage it will soon be gone. This is less than a month old; they are not well established. Interestingly, in that same 48 hours, the famous Russian troll farm GreenFloid, LLC tried to hack our website for the first time in years. Those are the ones who had held all the fake blacktivist rallies in Florida back then-and showed up heavily armed back then besides. Their reentrance onto the scene is more than just a warning sign.

If he starts early, if we start early, we can get out ahead of this and scatter those trolls like cockroaches, in the process showing the world what the difference is between us and the soon-to-be-impeached Donald Trump. No matter who Russian trolls say they’re for, we don’t want them around, and trying to “drown them out” is far too dangerous; not a sane risk to take after 2016. If Pete Buttigieg disagrees, let him give his reasons why. America deserves to hear them before voting in the Iowa caucus.

Sincerely yours,
The Millennial Democrats.
