Today was a weird one. On one hand, we’re dealing with the fallout of the Las Vegas shooting. On the other, the world continues.
TRUMP IN PUERTO RICO MAKES AN ASS OF HIM SELF. DEATH TOLL RISES TO 34 HOURS AFTER HE LEAVES.
That last part is a little confusing. Earlier in the day, the official death toll was 16. Hours later, it was raised to 34. 18 people didn’t just spontaneously die. These people were dead for a while, but there is a process to declaring someone deceased. I’m not completely sure of the process, but if there aren’t any clerks or coroners to sign off on the deaths, they aren’t officially dead.
Expect more people to officially die in the next few days.
Canada is debating their own version of the Global Magnitsky Act, which targets those who routinely commit human rights abuses. This targets Russia in general, and Putin specifically. Putin threatened retaliation against Canada if they pass this bill.
As a side point, it looks like Russia is ramping up its attacks on Canada and their upcoming elections.
We’re just getting started with learning how the Russians did it. 10 million ad views on 3,000 ads, at a cost of $100,000. The ads were targeted to people in key districts that had tendencies to either buy into crazy ideas, or were already sympathetic to their cause.
The Mercer Family, the money behind Breitbart and Cambridge Analytica, are paying some of Donald Trump’s legal fees, and started this the day that Comey was fired.
The Mercer’s are in it up to their necks. If Trump goes down, they’ll follow.
One of the hackers involved in Russia’s hacking of the election was arrested in Spain. Peter Leshayov, a man responsible for one of the largest bot nets in the world, was nabbed while on vacation in Barcelona.
Where it gets interesting is, while in police custody, he told his wife that he was arrested for his role in the American election.
Russia fought his extradition to the United States.
So, let’s say that the most powerful attorney in the United States says “hand over all of your emails concerning White House business. Do something stupid, and we will fuck your day up.”
What is the stupidest thing that a person could do?
If you answered “set up a personal email server hosted by my family in the company headquarters, and possibly open everyone up to even further investigation” then congratulations, you are the dumbest motherfucker in Washington, D.C.
You’re also either Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump.
The article that I linked to did some quick, yet in-depth network tracing that showed that the mail servers used for ijkfamily.com, the domain they created for their mail, were actually two mail servers used by trumporg.com.
This is incredibly stupid. If those servers weren’t already under investigation, they are now. And there’s a good chance that one of those two forwarded classified documents to this unsecured email.
Those servers open up the entire IT infrastructure of Trump Org to a subpoena. This includes backups, servers they communicated with, and any devices they talked to.
Don’t forget the IT Staff. Think any of them are loyal enough to do time for Jared?
The irony that email could take down the Trump’s is not lost on me.
IN OTHER NEWS:
That’s it for today. I’m expecting to hear some bigger news about Jared Kushner before the end of the week. There’s been too much noise recently.
Thank you, and have a good one.
