Am I Islamophobic?

Not in the least!

I prefer to see myself as being in touch with reality and not paying attention to the continual snow jobs offered up by the leftist tilt offered up by the media and our politicians.

Angela Merkel has been a woeful leader of Germany for far to long.

Her appeasement of Muslims is a matter of record.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The only way this could have been a better article is if hackers turned their abilities on members of the United States Congress and I’m speaking about Nancy Pelosi and her crew of leftist/progressives who are too ignorant or care less about the future of our Constitutional Republic.

In due time the same will befall them.

It’s the only way to insure the future of our Republic.

Look for more heads to roll.

 

 

Pelosi’s plan is dead on arrival as it takes 2/3 veto by the U.S. Senate to overturn an existing law with President Trump having the ability to use his veto power should he choose to do so.

(Bloomberg) — Hackers have released private data linked to Chancellor Angela Merkel and hundreds of other German politicians in the biggest data dump of its kind in the country.

The information includes email addresses, mobile phone numbers and personal chat transcripts, according to a review by Bloomberg News on Friday.

The data were leaked over the past weeks via a Twitter account called “G0d” that identifies itself as based in Hamburg and describes itself using the words “security researching,” “artist” and “satire & irony.”

It looks like the hackers got the passwords to Facebook accounts and Twitter profiles and worked their way up from there, said Simon Hegelich, a political scientist at Munich’s Technical University who has studied the manipulation of social networks.

 

 

“It’s a very elaborately done social engineering attack,” he said Friday by phone. “It’s a lot of data that’s been dumped.”

The German government is taking the attack “very seriously,” spokeswoman Martina Fietz said at a briefing with reporters on Friday.

The country has seen a range of intrusions in recent years.

Hackers tried to infiltrate computers of think tanks associated with the governing CDU and SPD parties in 2017.

A year earlier, scammers set up a fake server in Latvia to flood German lawmakers with phishing emails.

In 2015, attackers breached the network of the Bundestag parliament and stole 16 gigabytes of data. Security firm Trend Micro Inc. has linked the Bundestag attack and others to Pawn Storm, a group with ties to Russia — whose government has repeatedly denied it’s hacking foreign powers.

Bundestag Breach:

 

 

There was never any information leaked from the Bundestag breach despite its severity: hackers roamed the network for more than a week before they were detected.

The Bundestag’s entire IT system had to be taken down for several days to fix the problem.

 

Please see the entire article below.

 

The German government has since bolstered its technology protections, setting up a cyber-defense unit in 2017 staffed by thousands of soldiers and IT experts to protect military networks and key infrastructure such as power plants and hospitals.

Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security, known as BSI, is heading the investigation into the data dump at its cyber defense center.

So far the agency has no indication that government networks have been affected, the BSI said on Twitter.

Germany’s domestic intelligence agency BfV is reviewing the data and can’t yet comment because of the volume, a spokeswoman said.

‘Erode Trust’

“The perpetrators want to erode trust in our democracy and in our institutions,” German Justice Minister Katarina Barley said, according to news agency DPA. “Criminals and their backers must not be allowed to dictate debate in our nation.”

It’s unclear at this point whether the data release is linked to the 2015 Bundestag hack, and how significant it is.

It includes two email addresses and a fax number the perpetrators link to Merkel, and a letter by SPD lawmakers sent to the chancellor in 2016 that criticizes her handling of the refugee crisis.

The data connected to Merkel was not considered sensitive, Fietz said.

The data, which Germany is trying to remove, also includes what appears to be chat transcripts from Economy Minister Peter Altmaier.

More mundane material includes rental-car contracts and letters, some of them several years old. The attack appears to have affected all major German political parties with the exception of the populist Alternative for Germany.

The leaks were coordinated by four Twitter accounts that appear to be linked to the political right, Hegelich said.

For now, there’s no evidence pointing to Russia or the Bundestag hack from 2015, he said.

“This hack is different from breaching the Bundestag networks — which required a much higher level of sophistication,” Hegelich said. “But they’re no kids either.

It’s people that know about IT security.”

 

THE END

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

  1. Opinion says:

    This news is similar to the Wiki-Leaks news. What is interesting is that the “Leaked” data reveals which is being ignored by the Media. The “NEWS” is about what is in the data -m CORRUPTION!

    I now appears that the various governments around the world are corrupt to the core! This fact is not really news but is just being conformed.

    American’s knew Obama was corrupt but decided to allow the Media to lie. The very start of the Obama Administration was a fraud and Obama was never eligible to be the President of the USA. First, Obama was a Muslim and still is. Second, Obama installed Muslims into the very heart of America’s security system. Third, Obama openly discriminated against Christians. Obama in his words and actions demonstrated he hated America.

    The consequence of Obama’s actions was that many “Whistle-Blowers” came forward to revel the truth! The “Whistle-Blower” movement has now grown to a very sizable and vocal group who want America to know the TRUTH!

    The Spy Gate news is all true but the Media continues to hide the truth and the crimes. The Mueller Investigation is based on FRAUD but the Media hides the truth.

    Now, we, the People, are being exposed to the TRUTH. DISCLOSURE is happening and the Media is hiding the TRUTH here is America.

    NOW, Germany is getting a look at the TRUTH and it is not pleasant!

    WHAT is happening? The PEOPLE want to be free from the POLITICAL CORRUPTION!
