A democratic, hacker collective, actively seeking out and nullifying targets with any means needed
Now who do we know who is a Democrat, a hacker, and a writer who has published research about decision making collectives? That sure does sound like … Neal Rauhauser.
Who has a history of recruiting via Twitter for complex, long term projects like Progressive Congress News? Again, Neal Rauhauser rears his infamous head.
They aren’t gonna get very far asking people to contact by DM when they only follow eleven reporters likely to pick up hacktivism stories. I guess media whoring is easier than the delicate, gritty work of forging a team out of random grassroots activists.
Seeing the word ‘Russian’ and the bird of prey rising with wings displayed and elevated reminds me that about six months ago I trolled some paranoid retards with @AnonWolfrune. The account was made up to look like one of the highly theoretical Ukrainian neo-Nazi members of Anonymous.
Who do we know that speaks Arabic? Why that sounds like @OsborneInk, an Arabic speaking U.S. Army cryptologic linguist who pitched in with me on an analysis of data Anonymous got from the Syrian Electronic Army last year. Recall that Matt and another person both go FBI visits in September of 2013 after a Twitter account operated to look like me made a threat against the Buffalo FBI field office.
Hrm, who used to live in Michigan? Did you guess Neal Rauhauser? Right again! A crime like this would certainly get anyone Neal Rauhauser knows in Michigan a visit, wouldn’t it?
The originals are gone now, but the very first method @ProjectViridium tried to get attention was … posting a manifesto on Doxbin, a companion project of Encyclopedia Dramatica. They also have a companion site for revenge pornography called PinkMeth, which is being sued by a wingnut lawyer in Texas.
Four days from now there is a hearing in Texas regarding Rauhauser vs. McGibney Texas Appeals Case 02-14-00215-CV, which will likely result in a $1,000,000 sanction jointly and severally against James McGibney and his company, ViaView. One of McGibney’s cronies made a public production of getting in touch with the lawyer on the PinkMeth case back when it made the news. Now isn’t that interesting?
Wait a minute!! Do you think … could it be … someone about to lose a frivolous lawsuit … and face a huge sanction … would have created an online presence made to look like the other party … and then used it to claim a federal crime … that carries a lengthy prison sentence? And just in case they couldn’t get the DOJ to serve as their personal army … manufacturing and planting evidence … with an eye on that wingnut lawyer … so he’ll take the risk of coming after me?
Now maybe that’s just a whole pile of dots, just some of life’s little coincidences, arranged by a mind sensitized by too much conflict. But @ProjectViridium sure looks to me like someone tore up my playbook, added in a few cybercrime clippings, and made a collage. I am not the only one that came to this conclusion.
Fiat justitia ruat caelum.
