Russia’s Infamous Election Hackers Are at it Again


Russia Election Meddling



Yesterday, Trump went on and on with accusations that are completely baseless against China, claiming that they are attempting to meddle in our latest round of elections.


What’s really true however is that reports are beginning to surface implying that Russia’s GRU, better known as Fancy Bear (U.S. intelligence agencies have identified Fancy Bear as two units within Russia’s military intelligence directorate), has secretly developed and deployed new malware that seems to be impossible to eradicate, capable of surviving a complete wipe of a target computer’s hard drive, and will allow the hackers to return as many times as they would like.

The European security company ESET discovered the new malware and reported that It works by rewriting the code that is flashed into a computer’s UEFI chip that controls the boot and reboot process.

The code is designed to maintain access to a high-value target in the event the operating system gets reinstalled or the hard drive replaced, which under normal circumstances would eradicate the malware.

This not the first code to hide in the UEFI chip and Russia’s new malware works only on PCs with security weaknesses in the existing UEFI configuration.

Not in this case, the new malware does seem to prove that Fancy Bear is more robust, powerful and potentially dangerous than the world previously thought.

Donald Trump – UN Speech


United Nations – Laughs at Trump


The U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, well they actually laughed at Donald Trump during his speech, where he touted himself as the best president the US has ever had.

Once again making grossly inaccurate statements of having done more for this country than any other president ever has.

Case in point, North and South Korea, Russia, Iran and China.

Outwardly it may appear that Trump has won with his threats, tantrums and sanctions but if one were to take a step back, it is pretty clear that they are working together as a united team.

Something Trump is really too stupid to see.


So, after yesterday’s ill thought out speech, that the UN laughed at, this week’s award goes to none other than Donald Trump himself.

Congrats our leader in chief.

WhatsApp Video Provoke Villages to Lynch Mobbing?


WhatsApp – Telangana, India


In the southern state of Telangana, India people pay more attention to the news circulating on WhatsApp than from any other source and this past summer, the news created panic, mayhem and some disturbing crime.

One a particularly warm night something unusual began to take place. Something the local police had not ever seen before.

The streets emptied early and every resident shuttered themselves behind locked and bolted doors just after dusk – in more than 400 villages.

Authorities were puzzled by the unusual behavior, it was summer after all and very hot and dry. Children usually played until much later in the night, villagers would sit outside enjoying the night breeze.


Turns out, some disturbing video was circulating on WhatsApp. Some of the disturbing video’s depicted adults being disemboweled, others showed children being abducted. Each video came with messages that were meant to be a warning, one of such messages was that tribespeople were killing villagers to steal human organs.

Each of the villages has roughly over 2 dozen WhatsApp users where it is said that media literacy is low.

During the investigation, police learned the disturbing and frightening videos actually started circulation way back in March, possibly even earlier.

In April two women who missed a bus after performing at a religious function decided to stay in the village overnight. Around midnight that night a drunken fool saw them and woke his village informing them that “child kidnappers” were in town.

That of course sent a lynch mob after the women who were saved in the end but not after being beaten.

From April to May it was reported that at least 13 similar incidents had occurred, in just one village.

In April mobs across India attempted to mob at least 25 individuals.

This proves just how powerful social media in this decade have become worldwide.

Some have turned to the sites for news and in some areas because that is the only way they can really get news.


While these sites fight any form of regulation, the honest truth is perhaps we might need to look at strict regulation that would hold the site itself responsible for allowing content to spread panic which then results in a lynch mob or two or a dozen or more.

Or we could simply wait until people just start killing one another.

Dive Team Finds Body Instead of Mannequin


Warwick, RI


When you poll the workforce you generally find out that people really do not much care to do those forced trainings we more often than not have to do.

I would imagine that would be the case especially for a dive team training from Warwick, RI.

warwick - ri- dive team-crimeshop

On Wednesday a police dive team was tasked with training, they were to search for a mannequin hidden in the Pawtuxet River as part of a body-recovery drill, when they recovered an actual body instead.

The officer who spotted the body under a bridge said he at first believed it to be the dummy they were looking for.

Police believe the corpse had been in the water for about a day before being discovered.

So, the training session turned into a recovery operation leaving one diver patrolling the river area for an extended period of time.

News of the discovery broke when the Cranston police said they were assisting the Warwick police with a report of a body found in the Pawtuxet River near Narragansett Parkway.

The body is thought to belong to a 55-year-old man, with his identity being kept under wraps until his next-of-kin have been notified. No cause of death has been released, but it is not being treated as suspicious.

No word on whether or not they ever located the mannequin they were to search for.

NYPD Cop Ran Gambling and Prostitution Racket




For the most part, police in our nation are great, every now and again though you run across one or two that simply want no part in actually upholding the law, particularly when it comes to themselves.

Ludwig Paz, a respected and highly decorated NYPD officer, as it turns out became the ring leader of an illegal gambling and prostitution ring in New York.


Ludwig is a retired vice detective who used his knowledge of policing to run the rackets while evading the detection of law enforcement for a time.

He was caught naturally, but not after reaping the financial benefits.

His excuses are:

A Costly Divorce

Child Support

The recession of 2008

He and his new wife were earning roughly $2 million between August 2016 and September 2017 running the illegal prostitution and gambling outfits.

Which they were happily blowing on fancy and pricey new cars, clothing as well as other expensive luxury items.

Take note that he and his new wife were not happily spending the funds on his children.

So, this week’s award goes out to Ludwig Paz, thanks for all of your years of service as a cop with the NYPD and in turn taking your knowledge of evading the law and legal system to break the law.


Kudos Ludwig.

Elon Musk’s Wish to be Sued – Granted?



Thailand Cave Rescuer Vernon Unsworth

This is a rather bit odd for a tiff between two adult men but here we go.


It seems that Elon Musk did not much care for Thailand Cave Rescuer, Vernon Unsworth’s comments with regards to a mini sub that Elon built in an effort to help with the Thailand cave rescue in July.

The buzz is that Vernon negatively criticized a mini sub that Elon had built which Elon took offense to.

Elon’s response to that was to accuse Vernon of being a pedophile.

He kept referring to Vernon as the “pedo guy” on Twitter of all places. To make matters worse it seems that Elon sent a rather odd tangent based email to Buzzfeed and Buzzfeed in turn actually released excerpts of the email that Elon sent.


At one fatal point Elon stated “I fucking hope he sues me.”

In it he continually accuses the cave diver of being a child rapist while providing no evidence to support the odd and unusual claim.

In the end, Vernon decided he was sick of it and gave Elon precisely what he wanted and is now suing him for around $75K and a court order that prevents Elon from making false accusations with regards to Vernon being a pedophile.

Vernon is a British citizen who was directly involved with saving a boys’ soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave they had become trapped in.

As Brilliant as Elon is, at times he like many brilliant individuals tend to go off on a senseless tangent that turns out to be rather regrettable in the end.

But hey $75k is just a drop in the bucket for a guy like Elon so I say he just agree to hand it over to Vernon and sing a legal document stating that he will never mention the man’s name again and walk away with some shred of pride and dignity.

#Metoo Meets Men’s Groups


Men talking about how they feel


The MeToo movement stormed 2018 with such ferocity that it really shocked the entire world into viewing women differently not to mention highlight the bad behaviors of many men throughout the world.

It was bound to happen sooner rather than later. Women are for the most part really tired of being viewed, seen and treated as sexual objects that are far inferior to our male counterparts who are prone to such horrid behavior that it has ruined organizations, civilizations.

Look at the Catholic Church, a predominately run male organization that rapes and molests children and women.

We as a world, have taken a stand against such ideologies.

As the MeToo movement grows another has formed.

Several digital media and tech leaders have begun to embrace men’s only groups so that they too can express their feelings. Junto, Everyman and that like all have a purpose.

The groups encourage men to better learn how to have and create better professional and personal relationships.

Experts are not all that much for these groups. I mean it was the old boys club mentality that got to the MeToo movement after all.

But do experts really understand what the men are doing in the groups?


Unlike fighting it out “Fight Club”-style, men are sitting in small group circles weekly to talk through their feelings, allowing themselves to grow more vulnerable, to cry together.

By getting in touch with their emotions and themselves on a deeper level, they believe that they can be better employees, leaders, partners and parents and they are learning how avoid the past behaviors that allowed previous generations of men to treat women as second-class citizens.

Men have always been taught to hide or hold in their emotions, these groups are helping to teach them that is not always such a good thing.

Part of being masculine is the ability to feel, show and have just as many emotions as women do. Learning how to express those emotions in a healthy way will be key for many of the men in these groups.

Either way, I believe this is a step in the correct direction and I applaud them.

Brad Pitt Not a Home Builder?


New Orleans

Yesterday I saw something titled “Homes built by Brad Pitt falling apart…”

Could it be because he is an actor and not a carpenter, maybe?


All joking aside, the headline is a rather bit misleading. It is in reference to a foundation, The Make it Right Foundation that Brad started in an effort to help the victims of hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.


The keyword is “help” in that it was an effort to help them get to a point to where they, not Pitt or his foundation could rebuild their lives.

To be absolutely clear, Pitt did not build the homes himself, he hired what is called architects and contractors who are ultimately responsible for the shoddy work itself to be honest.


The homes are in rather bad shape, but in looking through initial pictures of them, they did not look to be built well at all in the first place.

What this really boils down to is that everyone want’s something for nothing.

A disaster occurs and people want free stuff, or stuff that replaces what they feel would cover the value of what was lost.

The problem with this frame of mind is that, the government, taxes, movie stars are not responsible for replacing anyone’s stuff in the event of a disaster.

While it is nice that some tried, they are not responsible for replacing anything that is lost due to a disaster.

Yes, it is unfair but that is also just life.

As for the homes built by the Make it Right Foundation, well they were touted as something they were not, however anyone who looked at them would have known that. Besides the reality here in the real world not the “I’m entitled to something for free” world is that you are not going to get a $200K home for around $130K.

That is simple reality.

But those that feel victimized again and that is what they are labeling it, are suing Pitt and his foundation.

Pitt I am sure had contracts built into the foundation that will undoubtedly protect him and for good reason, because he is not a carpenter but an actor. He hired what he thought were the right people in an effort to try to help which he did.

Perhaps some of those that were looking for the handout should have taken the time to consider that it was only a temporary and not lifelong.

The Woman who Helped Kidnap Elizabeth Smart to be Released from Prison

Utah Parole Board – 9/12/18 Idiots of the Week

As far as idiots go, here is a group of individuals that hide behind laws on the books rather than doing something to change those laws.


The Utah Parole Board has decided to allow Wanda Eileen Barzee to be released from prison early (9/19/18), due to receiving good time.

That is despite the fact that she has failed to comply with the conditions of her sentencing while in prison.

In most prisons, but not in Utah, prisoners who fail to comply with the conditions of sentencing get things like good time taken away from them and time added when they FAIL to comply with the conditions set forth through sentencing.

Which happens to be part of the whole idea of sentencing otherwise we would have no need for things like a Court System.


What truly makes this a complete travesty of justice is that the Utah Parole Board knew about this a long time ago, let’s just be completely honest here, they can’t hide behind not knowing since they are citing it now after all. They had ample time to change that.

Instead, they became complacent, lazy and just sat around collecting paychecks.

Congrats this week’s idiots, this aware goes out to the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole.
