Gov. Ron DeSantis vows to crack down on Communist China stealing intellectual property from Florida

Awesome governor. Expect a landslide re-election in Florida for Governor DeSantis in 2022. Any Floridian who votes against DeSantis is nuts.

Ron DeSantis vows to crack down on China stealing intellectual property from Florida

By Washington Examiner, March 3, 2021

Gov. Ron DeSantis proposed new safeguards to crack down on China’s attempts to steal intellectual property from Florida.

“For far too long, the Communist Party of China and other foreign adversaries have been deliberate in their economic infiltration of other nations, the United States in particular,” DeSantis said Monday. “China has made it a mission to steal intellectual property from our businesses, our government, and our academic institutions — all to further fuel their global objectives.”

“We will place strategic safeguards against foreign influence by closing loopholes, strengthening institutional vetting, and applying common-sense protections for Florida schools, government entities, and more,” he added.

Florida Speaker of the House Chris Sprowls said he found evidence of China stealing intellectual property from universities, such as the University of Florida and the University of Central Florida.

“We found that there are no limits to the depths to which other countries, especially China, will go to steal our science and technology,” Sprowls said. “Foreign adversaries use our university systems, local governments, research institutions, and companies to intimidate, influence, and steal their way to strategic advantage. Today, we are introducing legislation to combat foreign influence in our public institutions and prevent corporate espionage in Florida.”

Disclosing donations of $50,000 or more from seven “countries of concern” is among the proposals. The countries include China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia, Syria, and Venezuela.

DeSantis added that anyone seeking a contract with Florida worth $100,000 or more must disclose ties to the seven countries listed.

The announcement on Monday came after the Republican governor delivered remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. A straw poll conducted during the conference found DeSantis as the clear choice of attendees for the 2024 presidential election if former President Donald Trump doesn’t run.

Twitter Bans Three More Dissenters

The social media platform has no problem boasting about interfering in elections for the Left—but a big problem with people objecting that it was done.


They’re going to silence us all, eventually, if they can. On Saturday, the sanctimonious and hypocritical censors of Twitter came for Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft, radio host Wayne Allyn Root, and freedom activist Pamela Geller. Their crime? It appears to have been the heinous act of skepticism toward the official line, specifically, their refusal to accept at face value the official line about the 2020 election.

Root said:

“I am in shock. It appears to be a permanent ban. Although I don’t know. Twitter never warned me. . . . And never sent any communication saying I’ve been suspended or banned. I simply tried to tweet yesterday afternoon and could not. But unlike a previous suspension . . . My followers suddenly said 0.”

What Twitter wrote to Geller made clear what was going on:

Your account, PamelaGeller has been suspended for violating the Twitter rules.

Specifically, for:

Violating our rules about election integrity. You may not use Twitter’s services for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in elections. This includes posting or sharing content that may suppress voter turnout or mislead people about when, or how to vote.

Note that if you attempt to evade a permanent suspension by creating new accounts, we will suspend your new accounts. If you wish to appeal this suspension, please contact our support team.

Thanks,

Twitter

This is absurd from start to finish. Neither Pamela Geller nor Root nor Hoft did anything to “suppress voter turnout or mislead people about when, or how to vote.” Twitter apparently hasn’t even bothered to update its ban notice since before November 3. Nor did they do anything along the lines of “manipulating or interfering in elections.”

Still, there is no doubt that if Geller did take Twitter up on its magnanimous grant to her of a chance to appeal, the appeal would be denied. Twitter’s nameless, faceless wonks are judge, jury, and executioner, and no one can question their sagacity or righteousness of their decisions.

What Geller, Root, and Hoft did, of course, was simply report and highlight the many irregularities and unanswered questions surrounding the 2020 presidential election. Twitter, along with the other social media giants and the establishment media outlets, are labeling all questioning of the election as “lies” and are busy banning any suggestion that there was anything amiss about the election at all, without even bothering to explain all the issues. This is the way a guilty person who is trying to cover up his misdeeds acts, not the way a victor behaves when he knows he has won fair and square and is happy to set the record straight.

Meanwhile, these new bans came just two days after Time published an article titled, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.” In it, Time’s Molly Ball boasted of

a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.

Not rigging the election, but fortifying it. Right. And how exactly does one “fortify” an election? From the looks of Ball’s article, by rigging it.

Ball presents abundant indications of manipulation and chicanery in a fulsome self-congratulatory tone that works assiduously to turn reality on its head. A photo of Detroit campaign workers covering the windows so that no one could see what they were doing as they counted the votes—not exactly a hallmark of a free and fair election—is spun with the caption: “Trump supporters seek to disrupt the vote count at Detroit’s TCF Center on Nov. 4.”

Ian Bassin, cofounder of Protect Democracy, is quoted boasting that “the system didn’t work magically. Democracy is not self-executing.” It has to be executed by someone else, and it looks as if Bassin and others like him were only too happy to serve as executioners.

Contrary to Bassin’s statement, our “democracy” (which, as you may know or should know, is—or was—actually a republic), is set up to be “self-executing,” that is, the process should not be more complicated than each candidate making his case before the voters, and the voters freely voting. Ball details how corporate interests silenced opposing views and manipulated laws to ensure their desired result, all while writing darkly about Trump and his “henchmen” attempting to steal the election and destroy our “democracy.”

Time and Molly Ball may not have intended it, but now the cat is out of the bag. So the next step of the political and media elites is to silence those who keep pointing out the abundant signs of voter fraud, claim that they’re “lying,” and that they have to be muzzled for the public good.

Hence the banning of Wayne Allyn Root, Jim Hoft, and Pamela Geller. But as of this writing, Molly Ball and Time still have their Twitter accounts. See, there is “manipulating or interfering in elections” and there is “manipulating or interfering in elections.” Twitter is fine with boasting about doing it for the Left. Twitter is not fine with people who oppose it pointing out that it was done.

It’s all reminiscent of an older charge that has been leveled against Pamela Geller: that of being an “Islamophobe.” When she would quote bloodthirsty Islamic jihadis justifying their actions by quoting the Koran, she—not the jihadis—was called an “Islamophobe.” Her words—not those of the Koran—were dismissed as “hate speech.”

It has all been a shell game from start to finish, and the game isn’t over. The Left has arrogated to itself the right to judge what can and cannot be said in the public square. The Hoft, Root, and Geller Twitter accounts are not the first casualties of their fascist suppression of dissent, and they won’t be the last. Freedom of speech? Pah! That is so 20th century. Don’t you want to join Molly Ball and Time in the brave new world, in which one saves democracy by destroying it? You may not ultimately have any choice, comrade.

Rudy Giuliani Sued by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.3 Billion

Giuliani sued by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.3 billion

By Associated Press

Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit on Monday against Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who led the former president’s efforts to question the validity of the 2020 election.

The lawsuit seeks more than $1.3 billion in damages for the voting machine company, a target for conservatives who said it was part of a massive election fraud scheme, blaming it for Trump’s loss and alleging that its systems were easily manipulated.

Dominion’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in the District of Columbia, is among the first major signs of fallout for the former president’s allies and the ultimately unsuccessful effort to question the results of the 2020 election.

“For Dominion — whose business is producing and providing voting systems for elections — there are no accusations that could do more to damage Dominion’s business or to impugn Dominion’s integrity, ethics, honesty, and financial integrity,” the lawsuit says.

WATCH: Israel officially opens embassy in UAE

Health officials warn: Israel’s closures may last longer

“Giuliani’s statements were calculated to — and did in fact — provoke outrage and cause Dominion enormous harm.”

The suit is based on statements Giuliani made on Twitter, in conservative media and during legislative hearings where the former mayor of New York claimed the voting machine company conspired to flip votes to President Joe Biden.

Dominion provided machines for the state of Georgia, the critical battleground that Biden won and which gave Democrats control of the U.S. Senate.

“Dominion brings this action to set the record straight, to vindicate the company’s rights under civil law, to recover compensatory and punitive damages, and to stand up for itself, its employees, and the electoral process,” the lawsuit read.

Giuliani did not respond to a reporter’s message seeking comment.

During an episode of Giuliani’s podcast, he charged that “Dominion had stolen the election ‘technologically,’” the lawsuit alleges, and warned listeners that cybercriminals could steal the titles to their homes online.

Dominion has also sued Powell, who claimed that the company was created in Venezuela to rig elections for the late leader Hugo Chavez and that it has the ability to switch votes.

The lawsuit also alleges Giuliani’s statements about Dominion and the election being stolen helped lead to the breach on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol.

“Having been deceived by Giuliani and his allies into thinking that they were not criminals — but patriots ‘Defend(ing) the Republic’ from Dominion and its co-conspirators — they then bragged about their involvement in the crime on social media,” the lawsuit states.

So it begins! President Trump Banned from Twitter Permanently

The Leftist Tech Giants and their Democrat Socialist/Commie enablers may well find out what the founding fathers were getting at when they designed the First Amendment to the Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

They knew that when people are silenced and their views forced underground that violence would soon follow.

Free speech is how we blow off steam!

However, the fools now running wild in Big Tech are too young and too stupid to know what history has told us repeatedly.

From Breitbart:

Twitter Permanently Bans President Donald Trump

Twitter has permanently banned the account of the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” said Twitter in a statement.

Twitter previously removed a video from the president that called on his supporters to peacefully disperse and respect law an order, which the president posted less than an hour after reports that D.C.’s Capitol Hill was in the process of being stormed.

The president reiterated his condemnation of violence the next day.

This comes after Facebook and Instagram along with other big tech platforms indefinitely suspended the president’s access, cutting off a key line of communication between the president and the citizens of this country.

For more than four years, Breitbart News has reported on the rapidly increasing, undemocratic power of Silicon Valley companies, and their growing determination to interfere in the political affairs of the United States and other countries.

More here.

Most patriots still on Twitter like me (I am a small fry there) are losing followers by the hundreds (me, nearly 1,500 in the last few days) and thousands (James Woods, tens of thousands) literally overnight.

Surely Twitter is targeting us, but I suspect some of the loss has to do with the droves of people now leaving Twitter as Trump’s tweets were a magnet for them in the first place.

Driving Trump underground is sheer foolishness.

In one twenty-four period Twitter reduced my followers by 63,000.

The purge is on and unabashed in its ruthlessness.

Silencing voices is a sign of tyranny. The only sure truth about Twitter is that it is most decidedly not an unbiased “forum” for free speech.

— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) January 9, 2021

Many patriots are moving to Parler, however news was bad there last night as the site was down entirely.  I don’t know if it is up today, but they may not last long:

From Engadget:

Apple and Google crack down on Parler after violent threats

Apple and Google have told the “free speech” social media app Parler that it must begin moderating its users content, following violence at the US Capitol this week. The app — a Twitter alternative popular among Donald Trump supporters and the far-right —  has faced renewed scrutiny for its role in the planning of the attacks. [What “planning?”  Where are the reports of “attack” planning?—ed].

On Friday, as pressure grew for Apple and Google to remove it from their stores, Google suspended Parler from the Play Store, citing “continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the U.S.”

More here.

Next, citing the (embarrassing to the Democrats) invasion of the Capitol on Wednesday, they will take away our right to assemble….

Gee where in history have we learned about these fascist and communist tactics to drive political opposition underground—places where it never went well.

PROOF: Desperate Cover-Ups Prove Criminal Conspiracy to Overthrow Election

“Where’s the proof?” the MSM collectively chants, while pocketing their “mockingbird” blood money. Well, now we’ve got plenty. In addition to the bounty of evidence the media continues to ignore, we now have the most helpful evidence to ever inform any investigation: sloppy cover-ups by the criminals themselves.

In a word, the “proof” can be found in the many disparate “cover-ups” surrounding Dominion voting machines.

One by one, every warehouse, every repository of impounded equipment containing proof of Dominion’s widely documented, top-down role in awarding states to Joe Biden fraudulently — is attacked, raided, or destroyed, along with the proverbial “paper trail” leading inexorably to justice for these most seedy of crooks: the men willing to sell out America, for money. Judas would blush. Benedict Arnold would marvel at the audacity.

Dominion’s own IT chief is a documented member of ANTIFA who was observed saying he’d fixed the election to ensure a loss by Pres. Donald J. Trump. Dominion’s own manuals promote the ability to change vote tallies after the fact, as a desirable feature of their software. Dominion training videos show company employees instructing poll workers in the means of cheating and switching votes.

There’s more. Every state where Dominion equipment was used reported mathematically IMPOSSIBLE vote surges 100% for Joe Biden all between 10 pm and 3 am, and all supplying the exact number of votes needed to break Trump’s sizable leads in those states. Still not convinced?

Then, consider that when polls closed, Trump led in every one of those states. What happened? Dominion happened. The witching hour struck, and “presto,” Dominion machines logged voodoo Biden landslides (with higher support than even Obama received in 2012) in every one of the states in question.

Moreover, in excess of half (greater than 60%) of precincts were “reporting” (that means “all done counting”) in each of those states when polls closed, making the bumps for Biden wholly impossible without accepting voter fraud as the explanation.

CLICK HERE FOR AN INFOGRAPHIC OF THE ELECTION RESULTS IN 4 SWING STATES.
For example, Michigan’s 100k+ votes for Biden at 3 am all came from Detroit precincts showing 0% of registered voters. This is in spite of counties needed to win the state all going for Trump in 2016, and all going for Trump in 2020 — with even higher turnout this year. But 100k votes from 0% of registered voters and all mail-in, and all for Biden and none for Trump logged on Dominion machines — and we are supposed to believe the blue-collar counties which turn the state blue or red suddenly don’t matter? “Nothing to see here”? “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain; the great and powerful Oz has spoken.” Funny, the “wizard” of Oz was an old geezer with borderline dementia and a penchant for lying his ass off, too.

Dominion knows it is in deep water. But the smart(matic) move would’ve been to stay quiet, not give critics any more ammo, and make the FBI obtain subpoenas for every additional piece of incriminating evidence sought by Trump. Like an episode of “Columbo,” however, Dominion just couldn’t handle the heat, couldn’t take the stress. Dominion leadership just couldn’t keep their nerve. They made a “run” for it, so to speak, and in more ways than one.

Some examples include: Blowing up warehouses in Nashville, wiping the machines in Georgia in time for the runoff, moving its corporate offices multiple times and changing its DBA — all since the US election was concluded. In short, Dominion is engaged in a huge number of overt, in-our-faces, blatant cover-ups. But far from “covering” anything “up,” these actions signal desperation, and above all, prove Dominion is guilty.

Dominion might as well have signed a confession, and turned states evidence. Dominion’s actions arguably prove that its corporate officers, and by extension, the entire Democratic party / Biden machine, perpetrated massive and historic vote fraud on the American people.

In the animal kingdom, there are species that cannot see their prey unless the prey moves. If there is no flight, there is no dinner for some of nature’s predators. But like the quail in the Disney classic “Bambi,” who nervously exclaims, “I can’t take it! I can’t take it!” before flying into a hunter’s line of fire, Dominion was unable to wait out the inquest, to gracefully accept the discomfort of “hiding in plain sight.” In its efforts to conceal criminal conspiracy, Dominion has unwittingly made itself an easy target for Trump’s metaphorical “buckshot.” And Trump is taking aim.

Thanks Dominion, for confirming what we already knew: your company perpetrated an unparalleled, unprecedented, and historically unmatched criminal conspiracy against the American people to destroy their voice and steal their vote.

Smoking guns this obvious used to belong in a Woodward and Bernstein blockbuster. Too bad, since those schmucks sold out. Pamela Geller has all the moral high ground these days. Let’s hope her next book thoroughly unravels the mess that is the 2020 US presidential election.

Sidney Powell’s Election Fraud Case Before SCOTUS is a Gamechanger

Late Friday, Powell and her team filed a request with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking it to take up a case previously filed in a Detroit federal court, in the hopes the U.S. Supreme Court will take up their case before the Electoral College votes.

Sidney Powell’s team acknowledges in its filing it would be a rare move, they argue the court must act to prevent Biden from winning the Electoral College vote on Monday.

“The issues raised are weighty as they call into question who is the legitimate winner of the 2020 presidential election. These exceptional circumstances warrant the exercise of the Court’s discretionary powers,” the filing states in part.

Later, Powell and her team note, “once the electoral votes are cast, subsequent relief would be pointless.”

Team Trump must be allowed to have a fair hearing at the SCOTUS.

Why Sidney Powell’s case before the SCOTUS is a gamechanger

Everything up until now has been like the pre-game warmups for the judiciary. Now, it’s game time as Sidney Powell’s case heads to the Supreme Court.

By Noqreport, December 17, 2020

A week before Christmas, many Trump supporters have resigned themselves to the notion that this is their last holiday with a duly elected president in the Oval Office. Former Vice President Joe Biden is going to win, they think, because everyone from mainstream media to Big Tech has said it will be so. Even many in conservative media have thrown in the towel.

What the left and some on the right don’t want you to know is there’s still time to make things right. The Supreme Court verified that today by docketing attorney Sidney Powell’s case on voter fraud in Michigan. They do not take cases that have no potential of making a difference.

https://twitter.com/WW_NEWS_/status/1339612856455720960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1339612856455720960%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fgellerreport.com%2F2020%2F12%2Fsidney-powells-election-fraud-case-before-scotus-is-a-gamechanger.html%2F

The answer lies in what Powell, many pundits, and I have said is the most important information the Supreme Court needs to hear. As “CulturalHusbandry” noted on Twitter, the lawsuit has the forensic audit.

This is what Powell has affectionately referred to as “The Kraken.” The information found on the Dominion Voting Systems servers details clear evidence of massive voter fraud, the type that is capable of flipping an election if allowed to proceed unimpeded. This audit shines a bright spotlight on what every contested state in the nation (and technically every state, period) should be addressing in a hurry, namely the technological side of 2020 election fraud.

With this information before the Supreme Court, we have an opportunity to see how they will treat complex vote-count manipulation issues. Unlike other cases, this one does not dwell on suspicious changes to election protocols or constitutional challenges to COVID-19 lockdown prompts. It deals with hard evidence, and the Supreme Court is much more likely to address an issue of blatant voter-count tampering than whether or not mail-in ballots are fair.

Many have lost faith in the Supreme Court because they declined to hear the last two cases, but those cases had challenges from the start. As I detailed in episodes of the NOQ Report before those ruling came down, I had zero confidence in either of them yielding fruit. The Kraken, on the other hand, will challenge the Supreme Court to make a decision on merits. Sidney Powell’s case has unambiguous merits, particularly as it pertains to Dominion Voting Systems.

China Engaged in ‘Mass Surveillance’ on Americans’ Mobile Phones, Report Finds

On a side note, a group founded by far-left tech giants Google and IBM is working with a company that is helping China’s authoritarian government conduct mass surveillance against its citizens, The Intercept can reveal.

China Engaged in ‘Mass Surveillance’ on Americans’ Mobile Phones, Report Finds

The Chinese regime exploited vulnerabilities in the global mobile telecommunications network to conduct “mass surveillance” on Americans, according to a recent report by a cyber research firm.

By Cathy He, The Epoch Times, December 17, 2020:

By analyzing signals data, the report by Washington-based Exigent Media found that Beijing, working through state-owned telecom operator China Unicom, was the leading source of attacks against U.S. mobile users over 3G and 4G networks in 2018.

The regime exploited well-known network vulnerabilities, which allowed it to track, monitor, disrupt, and intercept communications of U.S. phone subscribers while they traveled abroad. The vulnerabilities are centered around the legacy mobile SS7 signaling system, described in the report as “a patchwork system enabling network operators around the world to communicate with each other for international roaming services.”

The Chinese cyberattacks targeted tens of thousands of U.S. mobile users from 2018 to 2020, Gary Miller, the report’s author and a former mobile network security executive, told The Guardian.

“Once you get into the tens of thousands, the attacks qualify as mass surveillance, which is primarily for intelligence collection and not necessarily targeting high-profile targets,” Miller said. “It might be that there are locations of interest, and these occur primarily while people are abroad.”

That the attacks were routed through a state-controlled operator indicates a state-sanctioned espionage campaign, Miller told the outlet.

The analyst also found that in 2018, two Caribbean operators were also involved in a series of attacks on U.S. phone users targeted by China Unicom, suggesting coordination between these networks. The two operators were Cable & Wireless Communications (Flow) in Barbados and the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC).

The report found that from 2019, attacks from China decreased, while those originating from the Caribbean networks shot up—suggesting that Beijing was attempting to mask its activities through foreign operators.

“China reduced its attack volumes, favoring more targeted espionage, likely using proxy networks in the Caribbean and Africa to conduct its attacks, having close ties in both trade and technology investment,” the report stated.

Citing Beijing’s expanded investment in the Caribbean, such as Chinese telecom giant Huawei’s partnership with BTC on the Bahamas’ 4G rollout, the report questioned whether this indicated a “strategic signals intelligence alliance between China and the Caribbean.”

The report added it was likely that Caribbean operators have sold or leased network addresses to Chinese entities, allowing them to conduct espionage, potentially without the operators’ knowledge.

Cable & Wireless, the company that owns Flow and BTC, said in an emailed statement to The Epoch Times that it was “carefully reviewing the information in the media reports.”

The company added that it continuously monitors its networks across all its markets including Barbados and Bahamas and has “robust security policies and protocols in place to protect the data of our customers.”

China Unicom in a statement to The Epoch Times said it “strongly refutes the allegations that China Unicom has engaged in active surveillance attacks against U.S. mobile phone subscribers using access to international telecommunications networks.”

In April, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) warned that the U.S. operations of China Unicom and two other state-controlled telecoms could be shut down, citing national security risks.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said federal agencies were “deeply concerned” about the companies’ vulnerability to the “exploitation, influence, and control of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Report author Miller found that attacks on U.S. mobile users continued in 2020, originating from Chinese and Hong Kong sources, as well as other countries.

“Unfortunately, these attacks will continue globally between mobile operators until full accountability, reporting of the attacks, penalties, and control of external ‘partners and customers’ who are provided with access to networks are exercised,” Miller told The Epoch Times in an email.

“This needs to happen immediately.”

Dominion Audit: Ballot Error Rate Was At Least 85,000 Times Higher Than FEC Allows

Bad news for Democrat crime syndicate.

Dominion Audit Contains Bad News: Ballot Error Rate Was At Least 85,000 Times Higher Than FEC Allows

B By Randy DeSoto, The Western Journal, December 15, 2020 at 8:19am

A Michigan judge ordered the release Monday of an independent forensic audit report of the Dominion Voting Systems machines used in Antrim County, which flipped from a win for Democrat Joe Biden to President Donald Trump after a glitch was discovered and corrected.

The audit, which was led by Russell Ramsland of the Dallas-based Allied Security Operations Group, revealed over a 68 percent ballot error rate — at least 85,000 times higher than the Federal Election Commission guidelines allow.

Additionally, Ramsland’s team reported the “extremely suspicious” absence of logs regarding the abnormally high number of digitally adjudicated ballots.

Antrim County in northern Michigan made headlines last month after the discovery of an Election Day computer “glitch” that had falsely switched the county from a win for Trump to a Biden victory.

The amended results showed the president winning the county with 9,748 votes to Biden’s 5,960.

Ramsland’s report said that of the 15,676 individual voting events recorded on the Dominion Voting Systems in Antrim County, 10,667 ballots — 68.05 percent — were errors.

The allowable election error rate established by the FEC guidelines is 1 in 500,000 ballots, but Ramsland’s team used 1 in 125,000 or 0.0008 percent, making the requirement less strict to account for vagueness in the law, Ramsland said in a text to The Western Journal.

U.S. Treasury, Commerce Department, USG Agencies Hacked Through SolarWinds [Dominion IT Provider] Software Backdoor

Communications at the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments were reportedly compromised by a supply chain attack on SolarWinds, a security vendor that helps the federal government and a range of Fortune 500 companies monitor the health of their IT networks. Given the breadth of the company’s customer base, experts say the incident may be just the first of many such disclosures.

Government agencies have issued warnings about the fresh spate of attacks, apparently from nation-state actors against major security vendors.

The SolarWinds Director sold $45.7 MILLION in stock options before the security hack hit the news

Kreb Security…..hackers believed to be working for Russia have been monitoring internal email traffic at the U.S. Treasury and Commerce departments. Reuters reports the attackers were able to surreptitiously tamper with updates released by SolarWinds for its Orion platform, a suite of network management tools.

In a security advisory, Austin, Texas based SolarWinds acknowledged its systems “experienced a highly sophisticated, manual supply chain attack on SolarWinds Orion Platform software builds for versions 2019.4 HF 5 through 2020.2.1, released between March 2020 and June 2020.”

In response to the intrusions at Treasury and Commerce, the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) took the unusual step of issuing an emergency directive ordering all federal agencies to immediately disconnect the affected Orion products from their networks.

“Treat all hosts monitored by the SolarWinds Orion monitoring software as compromised by threat actors and assume that further persistence mechanisms have been deployed,” CISA advised.

blog post by Microsoft says the attackers were able to add malicious code to software updates provided by SolarWinds for Orion users. “This results in the attacker gaining a foothold in the network, which the attacker can use to gain elevated credentials,” Microsoft wrote.

From there, the attackers would be able to forge single sign-on tokens that impersonate any of the organization’s existing users and accounts, including highly privileged accounts on the network.

“Using highly privileged accounts acquired through the technique above or other means, attackers may add their own credentials to existing application service principals, enabling them to call APIs with the permission assigned to that application,” Microsoft explained.

Malicious code added to an Orion software update may have gone undetected by antivirus software and other security tools on host systems thanks in part to guidance from SolarWinds itself. In this support advisory, SolarWinds says its products may not work properly unless their file directories are exempted from antivirus scans and group policy object restrictions.

REVEALED: SolarWinds Director Sold $45.7 MILLION in Stock Options Last Week Before CISA Announcement Sunday

By Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit. December 14, 2020:

Last night the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a rare Emergency Directive 21-01, in response to a KNOWN COMPROMISE involving SolarWinds Orion products.

This was only the fifth Emergency Directive issued by CISA under the authorities granted by Congress in the Cybersecurity Act of 2015

CISA reported a breach of the SolarWinds Orion products.

This Emergency Directive called on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.

This Emergency Directive called on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.

Dominion is still not powered down.

Analysist Identifies ‘Phantom Voters’ Used to Dilute Legal Votes in Several States

Fake people who cast votes. In Arizona alone, he identified as many as 300,000 of these voters.

Analysist Identifies “Phantom Voters” Used to Dilute Legal Votes in Several States

By: Dr E, Washington Pundit, December 15, 2020:

Enthusiasm is contagious and Bobby Piton has no shortage of it. Piton became an instant success after his appearance at the first round of hearings on election integrity in Arizona. Piton, an investment advisor and managing partner of Pre-Active Investments, is also a self-proclaimed math enthusiast, who was called in to assist a colleague to decipher election data from Arizona, just days before the hearing.

Piton analyzed the data from Arizona’s own government databases and discovered a unique subset of voters who could not be identified by their binary sex (male or female), which he termed ‘U’ voters. In Arizona alone, he identified as many as 300,000 of these U voters. He believes the voters comprising the U group are “phantoms”, or fake people who cast votes.

To prove his theory, Piton identified a subset of about 95,000 of these “phantom sleeper voters” in Arizona. A group of volunteers led by Liz Harris, candidate for AZ state representative in the 17th district, set out to determine whether these voters existed or whether they were truly phantoms. Of the 95,000 names identified, Piton narrowed down the potentially fake voters to a subset of 3899 potential phantoms on which to focus their efforts. He estimated 20 to 30% would be non-existent phantoms.

https://twitter.com/BobbyPiton3/status/1337112741614653449?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1337112741614653449%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fgellerreport.com%2F2020%2F12%2Fanalysist-identifies-phantom-voters-used-to-dilute-legal-votes-in-several-states.html%2F

Harris and her team set out to find these voters and began a door-knocking campaign. The volunteers were able to knock on 2000 doors in an attempt to find the individual voters on the phantom list. They were successful in finding 1000 people willing to talk to them and of those, 539 voters who should have resided at the residence were non-existent. That is an incredible 53.9% of the registered voters who were “phantom sleeper voters”.

https://twitter.com/BobbyPiton3/status/1338095162426265603?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1338095162426265603%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fgellerreport.com%2F2020%2F12%2Fanalysist-identifies-phantom-voters-used-to-dilute-legal-votes-in-several-states.html%2F

Piton believes the algorithm he devised could be used to easily identify fake voters in every state.

https://twitter.com/BobbyPiton3/status/1336323965493465093?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1336323965493465093%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fgellerreport.com%2F2020%2F12%2Fanalysist-identifies-phantom-voters-used-to-dilute-legal-votes-in-several-states.html%2F

He also theorizes that the phantom voters are used to cancel out a legal vote, yet remain hidden from detection. This is accomplished by casting a vote for the phantom, then modifying the voter rolls. He believes his theory can easily be proven by looking at the timestamps of changes made to a state’s voter files.

https://twitter.com/BobbyPiton3/status/1336759437260972034?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1336759437260972034%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fgellerreport.com%2F2020%2F12%2Fanalysist-identifies-phantom-voters-used-to-dilute-legal-votes-in-several-states.html%2F

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1337385736530780161?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1337388180622995456%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es2_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fgellerreport.com%2F2020%2F12%2Fanalysist-identifies-phantom-voters-used-to-dilute-legal-votes-in-several-states.html%2F

A similar effort is now underway in Pennsylvania, where Piton has gone on to identify Phantom Sleeper Voters. Thus far he has uncovered nearly 288,220 records that appear to be phantom sleeper voters in the 67 PA counties.

https://twitter.com/BobbyPiton3/status/1338530418790948867?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1338530418790948867%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fgellerreport.com%2F2020%2F12%2Fanalysist-identifies-phantom-voters-used-to-dilute-legal-votes-in-several-states.html%2F

In looking into one congressional race in the state, volunteers were able to discern 34% of identified phantom voters were in fact fake people.

Piton likens these phantom sleeper voters to a digital invading army. They attack by voting, then retreat into hiding by being deleted from the records. He plans to continue identifying these fake voters, and expose what he says is the ‘biggest fraud in history”.

China’s Facial Recognition AI Targeting Uighurs IS The Gestapo

We’re hearing Gestapo thrown around a lot lately. It’s almost as though the legions of easily-propagandized ignorants wore out the constant mis-use of Nazi, Fascist and Hitler. Most of the Gestapo iterations of this are complete nonsense.

Most. Not all. The Chinese Communist government’s police state apparatus is the modern day equivalent of the Gestapo. A report leaked to the Washington Post shows that the Chinese Communist government has tested, and is presumably using, AI facial recognition software developed by Huawei to identify the Muslim ethnic minority of Uighurs and alert police — read, Gestapo. The Post story reports:

“The Chinese tech giant Huawei has tested facial recognition software that could send automated “Uighur alarms” to government authorities when its camera systems identify members of the oppressed minority group, according to an internal document that provides further details about China’s artificial-intelligence surveillance regime.

“A document signed by Huawei representatives — discovered by the research organization IPVM and shared exclusively with The Washington Post — shows that the telecommunications firm worked in 2018 with the facial recognition start-up Megvii to test an artificial-intelligence camera system that could scan faces in a crowd and estimate each person’s age, sex and ethnicity. If the system detected the face of a member of the mostly Muslim minority group, the test report said, it could trigger a ‘Uighur alarm’ — potentially flagging them for police in China, where members of the group have been detained en masse as part of a brutal government crackdown.”

Make no mistake. This is a high-tech yellow star, except instead of being physically pinned on Jews, it is digitally affixed to Uighurs — or those unfortunate enough to look Uighur. The Chinese government is on a determined genocidal mission to exterminate this minority as it continues to boot stomp other minorities and dissenters. The Chinese government is, at this point, the largest source of organized evil actions in the world.

President Trump broke with 40 years of American acquiescence to Chinese cruelty, expansionism, technology and patent theft, trade cheating and spying on U.S. companies and governments, all in return for cheap manufacturing labor. It had been a Faustian bargain for the U.S., particularly middle class, blue collar workers, innovators and patent-holders. Americans and the rest of the world had been paying for it.

Trump was right to call out China, launch the trade wars that were bearing the fruit of better deals, push back on the expansionism and cut Huawei out of providing the U.S. 5G hardware. This latest revelation could hardly have made it more clear. He also unapologetically referred to them as Communists, which they are in repressive actions on a par with the Soviets.

But it looks like Trump will be leaving the White House and his successor, Joe Biden, has a frighteningly comfortable history dealing with the Chinese and quite possibly personally profiting from doing it. Biden has said he believes that a stronger China is good for the world — a mind-numbingly naive, or corrupt, take on this tyranny — and intends to roll back many of Trump’s policies dealing with this international scourge.

You can almost picture a mildly clueless Joe Biden standing in for another mildy clueless Western leader, Neville Chamberlain. After meeting with Herr Hitler in 1939, Chamberlain/Biden waive a piece of paper declaring peace in our times. It was a rueful mistake then, and it is a rueful one now. The devil’s due is frightful to consider.

There had been some bipartisan support developing for stronger dealings with China than pre-Trump, but given the level of Trump animosity that has left much of American progressivism incapable of rational thought, and Biden’s predilection to go soft on the Beijing killers, there is a real threat that once again they will be loosed.

An aggressively expansionist, spying everywhere China and a nuclearized Iran — another distinct possibility under Biden unless Israel militarily intervenes — would create a much more dangerous world than Biden is inheriting from Trump.

ACTION: Call on Congress to Investigate Pornhub!

This is what we’ve been working towards. The tipping point in our war. Pornhub will soon fall. We need your help right now though. The next week will make a big difference!

Pornhub profits off of the abuse of hundreds, likely thousands, of victims of child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, rape, and non-consensually produced pornography uploaded to their website.  

Survivor Rose Kalemba broke the silence by speaking to the BBC in a groundbreaking expose earlier this year and now more survivors have come forward in this investigation in the New York Times by Nicholas Kristof. One told him, “Pornhub became my trafficker,” and said, “I’m still getting sold, even though I’m five years out of that life.”

The Times reports, “Yet there’s another side of  [Pornhub]: Its site is infested with rape videos. It monetizes child rapes, revenge pornography, spy cam videos of women showering, racist and misogynist content, and footage of women being asphyxiated in plastic bags. A search for ‘girls under18’ (no space) or ‘14yo’ leads in each case to more than 100,000 videos. Most aren’t of children being assaulted, but too many are.”

Dani Pinter, our Senior Legal Counsel, who is featured in the Times piece, commented to me today that many of the victims she has interviewed are suicidal as a result of Pornhub’s criminal exploitation and monetization of their rape.

Justice for survivors requires that this impunity ends now.

Contact your Members of Congress NOW! This will take you 1 minute. Look what we accomplish when we get just a few of us speaking up. YOUR VOICE MATTERS!

Please join the National Center on Sexual Exploitation in urging Congress to:  

  1. Investigate Pornhub and #ShutItDown 
  2. Rescind CDA 230 Immunity 
  3. Pass the EARN IT Act (S. 3398 / H.R. 8454) 

Email Congress

Please take a minute to do the following as well:

  • Share the New York Times article wherever possible. If posting on Twitter, thank the author @NickKristof!
  • Comment directly on the NYT article to show public support of the movement. Pro-exploitation trolls are already trying to take over the narrative.
  • If you, or someone you know, has been exploited online via Pornhub, Twitter, Reddit, etc., please contact us. We may be able to help you seek legal action.
  • Consider a donation to grow this movement.

Your donation to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation today will go towards assisting survivors of Pornhub’s abuses file lawsuits to hold them accountable.

WATCH: Tech Millionaire Funds Hacking Team, ‘Says Election 100% Rigged. Not Even close!’

UPDATE 11/26/2020: We caught them!


“We are not on either team.” “I did not vote for Trump”

“The odd thing is the DHS was warned of all this in August.”

” I’ve funded a team of hackers and cybersleuths and other people with odd skills. We’ve been on this since August. One side story we’ll pursue one day is DHS was warned of all this in August and September. We tried very hard to….. but it was all crammed down from high levels.

RION: The experts Byrne is funding is an elite cyber security team that has been hired by the state of Texas to investigate a series of irregularities in the Dallas elections in 2018. The team consisted of members with backgrounds in military intelligence and federal law enforcement, for instance, the electronic irregularities in Dallas 2018 was rooted in Dallas as use of Dominion voting machines.

This group has been on Dominion’s trail over two years.

BYRNE: I’ve been up there since without since August and expanding and funding further and deeper investigations. So we really, I felt, kind of had the answer when everyone woke up November 4 and saying, “what happened?”. We couldn’t quite believe we couldn’t get anyone to listen to us.

RION: Their findings include a detailed list of impossibilities Dominion machines processing more ballots than is physically possible. Real time data showing Biden vote dumps that are statistically impossible and dozens of backdoor ways in which votes by the thousands can be changed, manipulated or deleted.

BYRNE: When you’re talking about, you know, thousands of votes in a row for one candidate. Just to give you. Just to give you the mathematical odds against it. If you’re talking about a group that has a 96% percent affinity for vitamins or go magic which I’m very heavily Biden board. The chance of having 100 votes in a row for Biden if it’s not if the chance of every vote is 96% for Biden, the chance he would have 100 in a row is about 1.6%, the chances you would have 1000 in a row, goes to about a couple quadrillion to one, and the chances that you would have the kinds of numbers we were seeing were there a place where there were 10s of thousands of votes in a row for Biden, the chances are quadrillions of quadrillions of quadrillions against that could ever happen in nature

RION: You didn’t necessarily vote, you did not vote for Donald Trump. You are a libertarian

BYRNE: That’s correct.

RION: And you are doing this, why?

BRYNE: I never voted Democrat or Republican or Democrat in my life. This is about the Constitution. These are goons. If we lose this moment, the Constitution is done. We are never back. We will never have a free and fair election again.

RION: I’ve spoken to your, your guys behind the scenes, they’re very, they seem very knowledgeable and they’ve pulled incredible data and you see a clear pattern between the major swing states in this regard…

BYRNE: It’s more of a clear pattern, we know exactly what happened. its everything – its just just a matter of how quickly can we get it all built up and explained in such a way, it’s absolutely clear there’s no, there’s no, there’s no shades of gray about this,

RION: Byrne says the lecture was 100% rigged and it’s not just real time data proving this.

BYRNE: We have more more than the data we have the data. We have hundreds of affidavits. We’ve been we’ve also had people gathering and organizing that effort. And we have the, the analysis of the equipment itself so that’s really the three buckets. And we’re getting it out but first feeding it to, you know, those who want it, which are basically Sydney’s and Rudy’s people.

I want to emphasize we’re not on other team where we’re independent.

RION: To that end, Byrne as a free agent has been feeding his groups, intel and findings to any group who can use it in court against dominion, it’s supporting anyone who wants to data and

BYRNE: I’m putting it up on my own website which is called the deep capture. I’m putting these different stories and facts and write ups on there so anyone can go there and find them. But this isn’t even close I want to show people that this isn’t even close. If you could freeze time and let this all play out through the courts what would be exposed is 100% clear this whole thing was rigged.

Meet the Hacker Who Rigged/Hacked Elections

How to Hack an Election

Andrés Sepúlveda rigged elections throughout Latin America for almost a decade. He tells his story for the first time.
By Jordan Robertson, Michael Riley, and Andrew Willis | Bloomberg March 31, 2016

It was just before midnight when Enrique Peña Nieto declared victory as the newly elected president of Mexico. Peña Nieto was a lawyer and a millionaire, from a family of mayors and governors. His wife was a telenovela star. He beamed as he was showered with red, green, and white confetti at the Mexico City headquarters of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, which had ruled for more than 70 years before being forced out in 2000. Returning the party to power on that night in July 2012, Peña Nieto vowed to tame drug violence, fight corruption, and open a more transparent era in Mexican politics.

Two thousand miles away, in an apartment in Bogotá’s upscale Chicó Navarra neighborhood, Andrés Sepúlveda sat before six computer screens. Sepúlveda is Colombian, bricklike, with a shaved head, goatee, and a tattoo of a QR code containing an encryption key on the back of his head. On his nape are the words “</head>” and “<body>” stacked atop each other, dark riffs on coding. He was watching a live feed of Peña Nieto’s victory party, waiting for an official declaration of the results.

When Peña Nieto won, Sepúlveda began destroying evidence. He drilled holes in flash drives, hard drives, and cell phones, fried their circuits in a microwave, then broke them to shards with a hammer. He shredded documents and flushed them down the toilet and erased servers in Russia and Ukraine rented anonymously with Bitcoins. He was dismantling what he says was a secret history of one of the dirtiest Latin American campaigns in recent memory.

For eight years, Sepúlveda, now 31, says he traveled the continent rigging major political campaigns. With a budget of $600,000, the Peña Nieto job was by far his most complex. He led a team of hackers that stole campaign strategies, manipulated social media to create false waves of enthusiasm and derision, and installed spyware in opposition offices, all to help Peña Nieto, a right-of-center candidate, eke out a victory. On that July night, he cracked bottle after bottle of Colón Negra beer in celebration. As usual on election night, he was alone.

Sepúlveda’s career began in 2005, and his first jobs were small—mostly defacing campaign websites and breaking into opponents’ donor databases. Within a few years he was assembling teams that spied, stole, and smeared on behalf of presidential campaigns across Latin America. He wasn’t cheap, but his services were extensive. For $12,000 a month, a customer hired a crew that could hack smartphones, spoof and clone Web pages, and send mass e-mails and texts. The premium package, at $20,000 a month, also included a full range of digital interception, attack, decryption, and defense. The jobs were carefully laundered through layers of middlemen and consultants. Sepúlveda says many of the candidates he helped might not even have known about his role; he says he met only a few.

His teams worked on presidential elections in Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, El Salvador, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Venezuela. Campaigns mentioned in this story were contacted through former and current spokespeople; none but Mexico’s PRI and the campaign of Guatemala’s National Advancement Party would comment.

As a child, he witnessed the violence of Colombia’s Marxist guerrillas. As an adult, he allied with a right wing emerging across Latin America. He believed his hacking was no more diabolical than the tactics of those he opposed, such as Hugo Chávez and Daniel Ortega.

Many of Sepúlveda’s efforts were unsuccessful, but he has enough wins that he might be able to claim as much influence over the political direction of modern Latin America as anyone in the 21st century. “My job was to do actions of dirty war and psychological operations, black propaganda, rumors—the whole dark side of politics that nobody knows exists but everyone can see,” he says in Spanish, while sitting at a small plastic table in an outdoor courtyard deep within the heavily fortified offices of Colombia’s attorney general’s office. He’s serving 10 years in prison for charges including use of malicious software, conspiracy to commit crime, violation of personal data, and espionage, related to hacking during Colombia’s 2014 presidential election. He has agreed to tell his full story for the first time, hoping to convince the public that he’s rehabilitated—and gather support for a reduced sentence.

Usually, he says, he was on the payroll of Juan José Rendón, a Miami-based political consultant who’s been called the Karl Rove of Latin America. Rendón denies using Sepúlveda for anything illegal, and categorically disputes the account Sepúlveda gave Bloomberg Businessweek of their relationship, but admits knowing him and using him to do website design. “If I talked to him maybe once or twice, it was in a group session about that, about the Web,” he says. “I don’t do illegal stuff at all. There is negative campaigning. They don’t like it—OK. But if it’s legal, I’m gonna do it. I’m not a saint, but I’m not a criminal.” While Sepúlveda’s policy was to destroy all data at the completion of a job, he left some documents with members of his hacking teams and other trusted third parties as a secret “insurance policy.”

Sepúlveda provided Bloomberg Businessweek with what he says are e-mails showing conversations between him, Rendón, and Rendón’s consulting firm concerning hacking and the progress of campaign-related cyber attacks. Rendón says the e-mails are fake. An analysis by an independent computer security firm said a sample of the e-mails they examined appeared authentic. Some of Sepúlveda’s descriptions of his actions match published accounts of events during various election campaigns, but other details couldn’t be independently verified. One person working on the campaign in Mexico, who asked not to be identified out of fear for his safety, substantially confirmed Sepúlveda’s accounts of his and Rendón’s roles in that election.

Sepúlveda says he was offered several political jobs in Spain, which he says he turned down because he was too busy. On the question of whether the U.S. presidential campaign is being tampered with, he is unequivocal. “I’m 100 percent sure it is,” he says.

Sepúlveda grew up poor in Bucaramanga, eight hours north of Bogotá by car. His mother was a secretary. His father was an activist, helping farmers find better crops to grow than coca plants, and the family moved constantly because of death threats from drug traffickers. His parents divorced, and by the age of 15, after failing school, he went to live with his father in Bogotá and used a computer for the first time. He later enrolled in a local technology school and, through a friend there, learned to code.

In 2005, Sepúlveda’s older brother, a publicist, was helping with the congressional campaigns of a party aligned with then-Colombian President Alvaro Uribe. Uribe was a hero of the brothers, a U.S. ally who strengthened the military to fight the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). During a visit to party headquarters, Sepúlveda took out his laptop and began scanning the office’s wireless network. He easily tapped into the computer of Rendón, the party’s strategist, and downloaded Uribe’s work schedule and upcoming speeches. Sepúlveda says Rendón was furious—then hired him on the spot. Rendón says this never happened.

For decades, Latin American elections were rigged, not won, and the methods were pretty straightforward. Local fixers would hand out everything from small appliances to cash in exchange for votes. But in the 1990s, electoral reforms swept the region. Voters were issued tamper-proof ID cards, and nonpartisan institutes ran the elections in several countries. The modern campaign, at least a version North Americans might recognize, had arrived in Latin America.

Rendón had already begun a successful career based partly, according to his critics—and more than one lawsuit—on a mastery of dirty tricks and rumormongering. (In 2014, El Salvador’s then-President Carlos Mauricio Funes accused Rendón of orchestrating dirty war campaigns throughout Latin America. Rendón sued in Florida for defamation, but the court dismissed the case on the grounds that Funes couldn’t be sued for his official acts.) The son of democracy activists, he studied psychology and worked in advertising before advising presidential candidates in his native Venezuela. After accusing then-President Chávez of vote rigging in 2004, he left and never went back.

Sepúlveda’s first hacking job, he says, was breaking into an Uribe rival’s website, stealing a database of e-mail addresses, and spamming the accounts with disinformation. He was paid $15,000 in cash for a month’s work, five times as much as he made in his previous job designing websites.

Sepúlveda was dazzled by Rendón, who owned a fleet of luxury cars, wore big flashy watches, and spent thousands on tailored coats. Like Sepúlveda, he was a perfectionist. His staff was expected to arrive early and work late. “I was very young,” Sepúlveda says. “I did what I liked, I was paid well and traveled. It was the perfect job.” But more than anything, their right-wing politics aligned. Sepúlveda says he saw Rendón as a genius and a mentor. A devout Buddhist and practitioner of martial arts, according to his own website, Rendón cultivated an image of mystery and menace, wearing only all-black in public, including the occasional samurai robe. On his website he calls himself the political consultant who is the “best paid, feared the most, attacked the most, and also the most demanded and most efficient.” Sepúlveda would have a hand in that.

Rendón, says Sepúlveda, saw that hackers could be completely integrated into a modern political operation, running attack ads, researching the opposition, and finding ways to suppress a foe’s turnout. As for Sepúlveda, his insight was to understand that voters trusted what they thought were spontaneous expressions of real people on social media more than they did experts on television and in newspapers. He knew that accounts could be faked and social media trends fabricated, all relatively cheaply. He wrote a software program, now called Social Media Predator, to manage and direct a virtual army of fake Twitter accounts. The software let him quickly change names, profile pictures, and biographies to fit any need. Eventually, he discovered, he could manipulate the public debate as easily as moving pieces on a chessboard—or, as he puts it, “When I realized that people believe what the Internet says more than reality, I discovered that I had the power to make people believe almost anything.”

According to Sepúlveda, his payments were made in cash, half upfront. When he traveled, he used a fake passport and stayed alone in a hotel, far from campaign staff. No one could bring a smartphone or camera into his room.

Most jobs were initiated in person. Sepúlveda says Rendón would give him a piece of paper with target names, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers. Sepúlveda would take the note to his hotel, enter the data into an encrypted file, then burn the page or flush it down the toilet. If Rendón needed to send an e-mail, he used coded language. To “caress” meant to attack; to “listen to music” meant to intercept a target’s phone calls.

Rendón and Sepúlveda took pains not to be seen together. They communicated over encrypted phones, which they replaced every two months. Sepúlveda says he sent daily progress reports and intelligence briefings from throwaway e-mail accounts to a go-between in Rendón’s consulting firm.

Each job ended with a specific, color-coded destruct sequence. On election day, Sepúlveda would purge all data classified as “red.” Those were files that could send him and his handlers to prison: intercepted phone calls and e-mails, lists of hacking victims, and confidential briefings he prepared for the campaigns. All phones, hard drives, flash drives, and computer servers were physically destroyed. Less-sensitive “yellow” data—travel schedules, salary spreadsheets, fundraising plans—were saved to an encrypted thumb drive and given to the campaigns for one final review. A week later it, too, would be destroyed.

For most jobs, Sepúlveda assembled a crew and operated out of rental homes and apartments in Bogotá. He had a rotating group of 7 to 15 hackers brought in from across Latin America, drawing on the various regions’ specialties. Brazilians, in his view, develop the best malware. Venezuelans and Ecuadoreans are superb at scanning systems and software for vulnerabilities. Argentines are mobile intercept artists. Mexicans are masterly hackers in general but talk too much. Sepúlveda used them only in emergencies.

The assignments lasted anywhere from a few days to several months. In Honduras, Sepúlveda defended the communications and computer systems of presidential candidate Porfirio Lobo Sosa from hackers employed by his competitors. In Guatemala, he digitally eavesdropped on six political and business figures, and says he delivered the data to Rendón on encrypted flash drives at dead drops. (Sepúlveda says it was a small job for a client of Rendón’s who has ties to the right-wing National Advancement Party, or PAN. The PAN says it never hired Rendón and has no knowledge of any of his claimed activities.) In Nicaragua in 2011, Sepúlveda attacked Ortega, who was running for his third presidential term. In one of the rare jobs in which he was working for a client other than Rendón, he broke into the e-mail account of Rosario Murillo, Ortega’s wife and the government’s chief spokeswoman, and stole a trove of personal and government secrets.

In Venezuela in 2012, the team abandoned its usual caution, animated by disgust with Chávez. With Chávez running for his fourth term, Sepúlveda posted an anonymized YouTube clip of himself rifling through the e-mail of one of the most powerful people in Venezuela, Diosdado Cabello, then president of the National Assembly. He also went outside his tight circle of trusted hackers and rallied Anonymous, the hacktivist group, to attack Chávez’s website.

After Sepúlveda hacked Cabello’s Twitter account, Rendón seemed to congratulate him. “Eres noticia :)”—you’re news—he wrote in a Sept. 9, 2012, e-mail, linking to a story about the breach. (Rendón says he never sent such an e-mail.) Sepúlveda provided screen shots of a dozen e-mails, and many of the original e-mails, showing that from November 2011 to September 2012 Sepúlveda sent long lists of government websites he hacked for various campaigns to a senior member of Rendón’s consulting firm, lacing them with hacker slang (“Owned!” read one). Two weeks before Venezuela’s presidential election, Sepúlveda sent screen shots showing how he’d hacked Chávez’s website and could turn it on and off at will.

Chávez won but died five months later of cancer, triggering an emergency election, won by Nicolás Maduro. The day before Maduro claimed victory, Sepúlveda hacked his Twitter account and posted allegations of election fraud. Blaming “conspiracy hackings from abroad,” the government of Venezuela disabled the Internet across the entire country for 20 minutes.

In Mexico, Sepúlveda’s technical mastery and Rendón’s grand vision for a ruthless political machine fully came together, fueled by the huge resources of the PRI. The years under President Felipe Calderón and the National Action Party (also, as in Partido Acción Nacional, PAN) were plagued by a grinding war against the drug cartels, which made kidnappings, street assassinations, and beheadings ordinary. As 2012 approached, the PRI offered the youthful energy of Peña Nieto, who’d just finished a successful term as governor.

Sepúlveda didn’t like the idea of working in Mexico, a dangerous country for involvement in public life. But Rendón persuaded him to travel there for short trips, starting in 2008, often flying him in on his private jet. Working at one point in Tabasco, on the sweltering Gulf of Mexico, Sepúlveda hacked a political boss who turned out to have connections to a drug cartel. After Rendón’s security team learned of a plan to kill Sepúlveda, he spent a night in an armored Chevy Suburban before returning to Mexico City.

Mexico is effectively a three-party system, and Peña Nieto faced opponents from both right and left. On the right, the ruling PAN nominated Josefina Vázquez Mota, its first female presidential candidate. On the left, the Democratic Revolution Party, or PRD, chose Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a former Mexico City mayor.

Early polls showed Peña Nieto 20 points ahead, but his supporters weren’t taking chances. Sepúlveda’s team installed malware in routers in the headquarters of the PRD candidate, which let him tap the phones and computers of anyone using the network, including the candidate. He took similar steps against PAN’s Vázquez Mota. When the candidates’ teams prepared policy speeches, Sepúlveda had the details as soon as a speechwriter’s fingers hit the keyboard. Sepúlveda saw the opponents’ upcoming meetings and campaign schedules before their own teams did.

Money was no problem. At one point, Sepúlveda spent $50,000 on high-end Russian software that made quick work of tapping Apple, BlackBerry, and Android phones. He also splurged on the very best fake Twitter profiles; they’d been maintained for at least a year, giving them a patina of believability.

Sepúlveda managed thousands of such fake profiles and used the accounts to shape discussion around topics such as Peña Nieto’s plan to end drug violence, priming the social media pump with views that real users would mimic. For less nuanced work, he had a larger army of 30,000 Twitter bots, automatic posters that could create trends. One conversation he started stoked fear that the more López Obrador rose in the polls, the lower the peso would sink. Sepúlveda knew the currency issue was a major vulnerability; he’d read it in the candidate’s own internal staff memos.

Just about anything the digital dark arts could offer to Peña Nieto’s campaign or important local allies, Sepúlveda and his team provided. On election night, he had computers call tens of thousands of voters with prerecorded phone messages at 3 a.m. in the critical swing state of Jalisco. The calls appeared to come from the campaign of popular left-wing gubernatorial candidate Enrique Alfaro Ramírez. That angered voters—that was the point—and Alfaro lost by a slim margin. In another governor’s race, in Tabasco, Sepúlveda set up fake Facebook accounts of gay men claiming to back a conservative Catholic candidate representing the PAN, a stunt designed to alienate his base. “I always suspected something was off,” the candidate, Gerardo Priego, said recently when told how Sepúlveda’s team manipulated social media in the campaign.

In May, Peña Nieto visited Mexico City’s Ibero-American University and was bombarded by angry chants and boos from students. The rattled candidate retreated with his bodyguards into an adjacent building, hiding, according to some social media posts, in a bathroom. The images were a disaster. López Obrador soared.

The PRI was able to recover after one of López Obrador’s consultants was caught on tape asking businessmen for $6 million to fund his candidate’s broke campaign, in possible violation of Mexican laws. Although the hacker says he doesn’t know the origin of that particular recording, Sepúlveda and his team had been intercepting the communications of the consultant, Luis Costa Bonino, for months. (On Feb. 2, 2012, Rendón appears to have sent him three e-mail addresses and a cell phone number belonging to Costa Bonino in an e-mail called “Job.”) Sepúlveda’s team disabled the consultant’s personal website and directed journalists to a clone site. There they posted what looked like a long defense written by Costa Bonino, which casually raised questions about whether his Uruguayan roots violated Mexican restrictions on foreigners in elections. Costa Bonino left the campaign a few days later. He indicated recently that he knew he was being spied on, he just didn’t know how. It goes with the trade in Latin America: “Having a phone hacked by the opposition is not a novelty. When I work on a campaign, the assumption is that everything I talk about on the phone will be heard by the opponents.”

The press office for Peña Nieto declined to comment. A spokesman for the PRI said the party has no knowledge of Rendón working for Peña Nieto’s or any other PRI campaign. Rendón says he has worked on behalf of PRI candidates in Mexico for 16 years, from August 2000 until today.

In 2012, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Uribe’s successor, unexpectedly restarted peace talks with the FARC, hoping to end a 50-year war. Furious, Uribe, whose father was killed by FARC guerrillas, created a party and backed an alternative candidate, Oscar Iván Zuluaga, who opposed the talks.

Rendón, who was working for Santos, wanted Sepúlveda to join his team, but Sepúlveda turned him down. He considered Rendón’s willingness to work for a candidate supporting peace with the FARC a betrayal and suspected the consultant was going soft, choosing money over principles. Sepúlveda says he was motivated by ideology first and money second, and that if he wanted to get rich he could have made a lot more hacking financial systems than elections. For the first time, he decided to oppose his mentor.

Sepúlveda went to work for the opposition, reporting directly to Zuluaga’s campaign manager, Luis Alfonso Hoyos. (Zuluaga denies any knowledge of hacking; Hoyos couldn’t be reached for comment.) Together, Sepúlveda says, they came up with a plan to discredit the president by showing that the guerrillas continued to traffic in drugs and violence even as they talked about peace. Within months, Sepúlveda hacked the phones and e-mail accounts of more than 100 militants, including the FARC’s leader, Rodrigo Londoño, also known as Timochenko. After assembling a thick file on the FARC, including evidence of the group’s suppression of peasant votes in the countryside, Sepúlveda agreed to accompany Hoyos to the offices of a Bogotá TV news program and present the evidence.

It may not have been wise to work so doggedly and publicly against a party in power. A month later, Sepúlveda was smoking on the terrace of his Bogotá office when he saw a caravan of police vehicles pull up. Forty black-clad commandos raided the office to arrest him. Sepúlveda blamed his carelessness at the TV station for the arrest. He believes someone there turned him in. In court, he wore a bulletproof vest and sat surrounded by guards with bomb shields. In the back of the courtroom, men held up pictures of his family, making a slashing gesture across their throats or holding a hand over their mouths—stay silent or else. Abandoned by former allies, he eventually pleaded guilty to espionage, hacking, and other crimes in exchange for a 10-year sentence.

Three days after arriving at Bogotá’s La Picota prison, he went to the dentist and was ambushed by men with knives and razors, but was saved by guards. A week later, guards woke him and rushed him from his cell, saying they had heard about a plot to shoot him with a silenced pistol as he slept. After national police intercepted phone calls revealing yet another plot, he’s now in solitary confinement at a maximum-security facility in a rundown area of central Bogotá. He sleeps with a bulletproof blanket and vest at his bedside, behind bombproof doors. Guards check on him every hour. As part of his plea deal, he says, he’s turned government witness, helping investigators assess possible cases against the former candidate, Zuluaga, and his strategist, Hoyos. Authorities issued an indictment for the arrest of Hoyos, but according to Colombian press reports he’s fled to Miami.

When Sepúlveda leaves for meetings with prosecutors at the Bunker, the attorney general’s Bogotá headquarters, he travels in an armed caravan including six motorcycles speeding through the capital at 60 mph, jamming cell phone signals as they go to block tracking of his movements or detonation of roadside bombs.

In July 2015, Sepúlveda sat in the small courtyard of the Bunker, poured himself a cup of coffee from a thermos, and took out a pack of Marlboro cigarettes. He says he wants to tell his story because the public doesn’t grasp the power hackers exert over modern elections or the specialized skills needed to stop them. “I worked with presidents, public figures with great power, and did many things with absolutely no regrets because I did it with full conviction and under a clear objective, to end dictatorship and socialist governments in Latin America,” he says. “I have always said that there are two types of politics—what people see and what really makes things happen. I worked in politics that are not seen.”

Sepúlveda says he’s allowed a computer and a monitored Internet connection as part of an agreement to help the attorney general’s office track and disrupt drug cartels using a version of his Social Media Predator software. The government will not confirm or deny that he has access to a computer, or what he’s using it for. He says he has modified Social Media Predator to counteract the kind of sabotage he used to specialize in, including jamming candidates’ Facebook walls and Twitter feeds. He’s used it to scan 700,000 tweets from pro-Islamic State accounts to learn what makes a good terror recruiter. Sepúlveda says the program has been able to identify ISIS recruiters minutes after they create Twitter accounts and start posting, and he hopes to share the information with the U.S. or other countries fighting the Islamist group. Samples of Sepúlveda’s code evaluated by an independent company found it authentic and substantially original.

Sepúlveda’s contention that operations like his happen on every continent is plausible, says David Maynor, who runs a security testing company in Atlanta called Errata Security. Maynor says he occasionally gets inquiries for campaign-related jobs. His company has been asked to obtain e-mails and other documents from candidates’ computers and phones, though the ultimate client is never disclosed. “Those activities do happen in the U.S., and they happen all the time,” he says.

In one case, Maynor was asked to steal data as a security test, but the individual couldn’t show an actual connection to the campaign whose security he wanted to test. In another, a potential client asked for a detailed briefing on how a candidate’s movements could be tracked by switching out the user’s iPhone for a bugged clone. “For obvious reasons, we always turned them down,” says Maynor, who declines to name the candidates involved.

Three weeks before Sepúlveda’s arrest, Rendón was forced to resign from Santos’s campaign amid allegations in the press that he took $12 million from drug traffickers and passed part of it on to the candidate, something he denies.

According to Rendón, Colombian officials interviewed him shortly afterward in Miami, where he keeps a home. Rendón says that Colombian investigators asked him about Sepúlveda and that he told them Sepúlveda’s role was limited to Web development.

Rendón denies working with Sepúlveda in any meaningful capacity. “He says he worked with me in 20 places, and the truth is he didn’t,” Rendón says. “I never paid Andrés Sepúlveda a peso.”

Last year, based on anonymous sources, the Colombian media reported that Rendón was working for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Rendón calls the reports untrue. The campaign did approach him, he says, but he turned them down because he dislikes Trump. “To my knowledge we are not familiar with this individual,” says Trump’s spokeswoman, Hope Hicks. “I have never heard of him, and the same goes for other senior staff members.” But Rendón says he’s in talks with another leading U.S. presidential campaign—he wouldn’t say which—to begin working for it once the primaries wrap up and the general election begins.
