UnMasking the March

photo copy

We have written up quite a bit on Anonymous in the past, but not so much as of late because the Internet hive-mind has been on a bit of a hiatus (aside from DOXing the KKK and some murderous cops). This hasn’t stopped others, however, from co-copting the name and images of the internet hacker group to use for their own propaganda and political agendas. You remember Jamie Jo Corne from years back— well, there is a new co-opter in town and she is like a Sarah Palin of activism.

Christine Ann Sands

Christine Ann Sands

Recently, there was a march in Washington DC called the “Million Mask March” which was promoted as an “Anonymous” event. But how “Anonymous” was it? The woman behind the event is Christine Ann Sands, who gives out her info as:

We encountered Ms. Sands (or WhateverTheFuckHerNameis) while covering the crazy right-wing tea party event “Operation American Spring” (another clusterfuck of lunacy). She was trailing behind their meager march and homed in on any press like a heat seeking missile. Seriously, the most dangerous place in Washington is between Christine and a camera. We didn’t pay her any mind as we found her incredibly annoying and self-absorbed. We did a bit of research on her claims of activist fame and chose to ignore her– it’s the most effective technique to deal with people who thrive off unwarranted self importance.

Although Wonkette did give her some less than complimentary face time, she vanished into obscurity until she popped up when amateur leftist media sources were paying attention to the Million Mask March event in November of this year.

Digging into who this person is, she is obviously not really an Internet hacktivist at all– she is merely someone who has done several strange jobs in the past.

Oh how Mavericky!

Oh how Mavericky!

Her “internet activism” consists of trying to register as many URLs for other protest movements, like the OccupyDC protest, so she’s a glorified domain squatter.

We located a very interesting and pretty well researched pastebin on Ms Sands (or is it Mrs. Wahab?)

There are many accusations that this woman is a fed– and we are not ruling that out– but we are not going there yet

She does appear to be pretty well funded without any visible means of support ( she has a fancy painted up bus!) and even though her lunacy could very well be a ruse, she is apparently so flakey one would question if even the FBI would stoop to employ somebody this unhinged. She posted this long rant on her FB page:

Is there enough crazy here?

Is there enough crazy here?

Is she trying so hard to play a role that she is overdoing it? On the other hand… damn, this woman has some serious issues with reality.

Why is Russian Government TV involved?

Why is Kremlin TV involved?

Digging further, we also noticed that the Kremlin-funded Russia Today was also promoting this event. We are not the only ones who noticed this, as right wing blogger right wing blogger Kevin Tracy points out. Unfortunately, Tracy’s article is not accurate. He fails to expose who is really behind this event, claiming it was put together by actual Anonymous hackivists when it was not. He also fails to mention when Russia Today violated campaign finance laws to give the similarly unhinged Adam Kokesh airtime to use to raise money for the Ron Paul campaign.
Getting back to Ms Sands, she herself has been the doyenne of Russian government media quite few times.
Like Adam Kokesh, besides trying to co-opt Anonymous and the Occupy Movement (as both have tried to do) both were also involved with the right wing racist Ron Paul.

Christine has some opposition as well. The fellows we found who have the biggest beef with her are a chap named John Fairhurst and his comrades from Anti-Media who claim to be the original organizers of the march. We would feel a bit better about the march if they weren’t also Ron Paul supporters, but they are, in fact Fairhurst even asks Paul to come as speak at the Million Mask March on facebook thread.

Other Million March Organizers show an unsettling connection to rightwing/racist Ron Paul

Other Million March Organizers show an unsettling connection to rightwing/racist Ron Paul

There has been a long simmering movement coming from the third-position right wing to try to co-opt and manipulate leftist movements. Ms. Sands is part of that third position/Ron Paul/ pro-military revolutionary crowd who is trying to mislead disenchanted leftists into supporting something nefariously masked that they would normally be opposed to.

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 1.57.58 PM

We also speculate that she is connected to Charles Kacprowicz– he of the extreme right-wing pro-military extremist movement Operation American Spring. She has promoted information of his event on her facebook page.

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 2.02.40 PM

A word of caution for all leftists and anti-fascist activists: just because something looks revolutionary, it does not mean their goals are your goals. Ms. Sand is a right-winger and a conspiracy quack; she is tied in with pro-militia groups, Ron Paul and the right wing racist Russian government’s propaganda machine. The parallels between her and Adam Kokesh are almost identical.

A word for leftist amateur media- do your homework! Don’t be an unwitting propaganda tool!

Supporting this kind of façade is political suicide.

Anonymous Vs. HBGary Federal

u mad?

February 4th, 2011, HBGary Federal CEO Aaron Barr gave an arrogant interview to the Financial Times, (which can be found here) where he claims that he knows the identities of the “leadership” of anonymous, has proof to support this allegation and is planning on using this to generate buzz about an upcoming speech he was to give at a cybersecurity conference in San Francisco later in February. Aaron Barr confessed to knowing the risks with such an undertaking, but he claimed to be prepared for them.

What happened next was stunning in its speed and brutality. Anonymous– which does not like being threatened, even with fabricated information– hacked rootkit.com, which is the personal website of Aaron’s corporate chief, Greg Hoglund. From there, anonymous was able to gain access to Greg’s email where they claimed to be Greg and sent HBGary’s technical director an email asking to open up port 59022, drop the firewall and to confirm the password. The technical director dutifully opened the port, dropped the firewall and provided the correct password.

Anonymous then had access to HBGary’s website and HBGary Federal’s website. They then downloaded the email files (“Spools”) for Aaron, Greg, and Aaron’s co-workers Phil and Ted. From there, they lured the still-incognito Aaron into a private IRC channel to confirm his identity. They did this by implying that Anonymous’ next target was HBGary Federal and– by virtue of having access to Aaron’s email– saw Aaron send an email attempting to warn his corporate masters of anon’s impending attack. With Aaron’s identity confirmed, they announced to him that they knew who he was and that they had possession of all of HBGary and HBGary Federal’s email.

Anons flooded into this chatroom and began mocking Aaron, who feebly attempted to defend himself by lying and claiming that he never intended to sell his information to the FBI, whereupon Anonymous produced his anonymous-v2.pdf file and the email that displayed his intention to attempt to sell both this file and HBGary Federal’s services to the FBI. Aaron proceeded to lie throughout this altercation, quitting in a rage several times before claiming that Anonymous had committed severe crimes and that they had “messed with the wrong opponent.” Aaron Barr finally exercised his divine right of stomping off the internet like a bratty child by offering the weak-assed excuse that anonymous was attempting to hack his home router, so in a fit of internet wizardry that completely justifies his six-figure salary, he turned his router off.

Seriously, he gets paid a six digit salary for THIS?

Penny of HBGary was brought into the chat, where she was advised to be honest as anonymous had possession of all of her emails and could verify if she was telling the truth or lying outright. Penny, being a corporatist, chose the lying path and claimed that she nor hbgary knew anything about Aaron’s activities. Anonymous quickly proved this false. While all of this was going on, Anonymous posted the 4.70 gigabyte archive to the pirate bay for the public to view.

Thanks to anonymous’ activities with chanology, a multitude of news outlets were notified and supplied with copies of the archive, where they proceeded to pick through them and pick out notable scandals, including HBGary’s involvement in a scheme cooked up by lawyers for Bank of America to intimidate, harass and blackmail journalists favorable to Wikileaks; and another scheme devised at the behest of the US Chamber of Commerce to infiltrate, subvert and hack major unions.

The fallout is still ongoing. Major IT companies are cutting all ties with HBGary, federal agencies are dumping HBGary and HBGary Federal and all companies that have installed HBGary products have been advised to discontinue their use and seek replacements due to the massive security hole this leak has produced. The juciest and most damning tidbit of all is the fact that HBGary was in possession of the infamous Stuxnet trojan– the same trojan that was used to infect and disable Iranian uranium centrifuges. Since it’s been leaked, the source code for Stuxnet is now available online for all to view.

Anonymous has since created a searchable, web-based database of all 60,000 leaked emails, which you can peruse for yourself at the following sites and mirrors:
http://hbgary.anonleaks.ch//

Several lessons are readily apparent from this saga: silencing free speech and freedom of expression by underhanded means always backfires; many IT Security companies have incredibly lax security and the fact that they are employed by the federal government and paid with taxpayer dollars is laughable and insulting; attacking anonymous for personal and monetary gain is fatally idiotic.

Aaron Barr has joined Hal Turner and a long list of butthurt losers who thought they could silence the internet and failed.

He who lols last, lols best.

Right now, we're in Romania and Saipan.

THE STATE OF BRADLEY MANNING; WE HAVE ID’D HIS JAIL ABUSER!!!

A few posts back, we reported on a protest at the Quantico Marine Base where Manning is being held as a political prisoner.

Despite the failed attempts by the protesters to try to reach, contact and deliver a care package to Manning, hopes were that he was well. The fears are that he is being tortured by the biased and nationalist anti-freedom military who are keeping him there.

All of those fears have been confirmed in this report:

WikiLeaks GI’s complaint targets his Marine jailer
Associated Press
2011-01-21 11:03 PM

The lawyer for a soldier suspected of passing classified information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks is alleging wrongdoing by a military jailer.

David Coombs said Friday he has filed a complaint under military law with the commander of the Marine Corps base where Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is being held in Quantico, Virginia.

The lawyer said in a posting on his blog that Navy Chief Warrant Officer 4 James Averhart abused his discretion by placing Manning on 24-hour suicide watch from Tuesday evening to Thursday afternoon contrary to the recommendation of the military jail’s own psychiatrist.

Manning has been confined at least 23 hours day for nearly six months. His lawyer wants Manning’s maximum-security status changed to medium-security.

We found a photo of Marine Chief Warrant Officer 4 James T Averhart:

Wikileaks is the word!


On January 17, 2011, in Triangle Virginia protesters rallied at the main gate of Quantico Marine Corps base to demand the release of Bradley Manning, who has been held in solitary confinement for seven months following his May 27th arrest for his alleged involvement in the Wikileaks fiasco. Activists blocked half of the main road into the base and attempted to deliver a care package to Manning, which was denied by the base guards. Manning is charged with passing confidential information to Wikileaks, but he has yet to be tried or sentenced.

Open letter to the Department of Justice

This is posted on the very good site AnonOps Communications

It is in reference to the insane subpenus (subpoena) issued by the Department of Justice by going after internet users who “tweet” wikileaks instead of paying attention to right wing terrorists who are actually openly harming and murdering the public

UPDATE!! GREAT LETTER BY BLOGGER OKKE ORNSTEIN

From AnonOp Communications

Open letter to the Department of Justice
To Whom It May Concern

We are regretful of your actions to attempt to retrieve information from Twitter about the account belonging to “Wikileaks”, as by doing so you are attempting to remove the anonymity of the poster and by extension, their right to speech. We are confused as to why you have brought such a subpoena against Twitter, as there is little information you will gain from these details, leaving comments and observations on the world are to our understanding; not a criminal offence

Is this not the same type of action that you, DOJ, find reprehensible in other countries? How do you justify the same action in the US? No crime has been committed yet you assume that the populace at large will just “roll over” as always and allow this intrusion.

The time has come for the people of the world to take an active part in governing their own lives and freedoms. The world must become aware that its freedoms are in jeopardy. Today, Twitter, tomorrow, what? Recent events have shown that people are becoming tired of being treated this way. Why push an unwinnable confrontation when working for the same goal is always more productive (learn from history).

The US Government expressed concern over the Tunisian Government’s actions when they attacked protesters’ Facebook accounts. Is there a difference here? They attack and you use the “law” (loosely defined) to in essence do the same thing. What’s the possible difference? Your motives are the same.

Yours Faithfully

We do not forgive. We do not forget.
