I sat down at my computer on New Year’s Eve, 2007, with the intent that I was going to start writing in earnest. I have never done a full count of words of my four year run on DailyKos, but it’s between half and three quarters of a million.
This blog has played host to several hundred thousand words since its inception in the fall of 2011, covering everything from political protest to geopolitics in the arc from West Africa to the Indus river valley. I find that I learn best when attempting to explain things to others.
The first thing I did in 2014 was announce an end to a long running series of information operations dating back to 2010 which targeted various anti-government extremists who have intruded into my personal and professional life. All Good Things Must End, the final post on the Conspiracy Brokers web site, recaps the final three months and provides pointers to another victim’s civil RICO suit, which appears to be moving along nicely.
The individuals mentioned on the front page aren’t there by accident. They worked long hours, some times for years, and took a lot of foolish risks to earn that place of honor. It would never occur to me to commit a crime and then try to frame someone else for it. I have picked through the treasure that spills from intrusions, but social engineering, wire tapping, and then signing my own name to the leak when the content comes out? Wow.
The combination of poor character and poor methods needed to achieve these things and to always get caught in the process demand such recognition.
