Sharyl Attkisson: please ask Marcy Wheeler about the Tor Exception, and then "what is a "targeted individual."

More and more, we see reporters are targets of the “Fourteen Eyed Monster,” aka the NSA warrantless hacking, redirection, and targeting scheme.And, keep the CIA plausible deniability that I write aout all over ROGS here in mind as you read this case study of computer hacking, redirection, an monitoring of a targeted individual, CBS news reporter Sharyl Attkisson, and American citizen.
And-remember: one of the main threats of “gang stalkers” is that they will force a “target” to go broke suing them.

While forensically, we must look at “organized gang stalking” as “counter-intelligence stalking,” which is what it is properly called in the intelligence agency, law enforcement and military circles where it originated, we also must look at the complaints of “targeted individuals much the way that Marcy Wheeler, aka emptywheel.com and others are starting to see the term: as something more than ‘ordinary complaints.
Because what these claims are is EXTRAORDINARY complaints-once we weed out the counter-intelligence psychobabble, disinformation, misinformation, and the massive fraud that most of the spy-state is.
And, we can begin to perform a biopsy on many cases that otherwise defied explanation up until recently, such as the “kill book” that some BLM agents brag about, as they literally stalk people to suicide, using hidden methods and tactics of counter-intelligence that never see the inside of a court room.
Or former New Yarwk Times reporter James Risen’s case of being stalked for 12 years because he did what journalists are supposed to do in a healthy democracy-he protected his source Jeffrey Sterling, who was railroaded by the CIA;for allegedly revealing a cartoonish CIA plot.

Or the well known cases of “frame jobs” such as how the Beatrice Six were literally bullied into Stockholme Syndrome and framed for a crime they didn’t commit. But like I say quite frequently-in a word where counter-intelligence stalking is designed to “slice the enemies throats with Occam’s Razor,” well, get out the ROGS BINGO card for the case of Sharyl Atkisson too, because many-if not all OGS is political stalking that began in the “building the haystack era of political policing via database abuse.
And-take note of the similarities across ALL of these cases, because “hacking the computers of TI’s” is one of the most common threats in the dialectic online.

    From SharylAttkisson.com:
    It “is not a mistake; it is not a random event; and it is not technically possible for these IP addresses to simply appear on her computer systems without activity by someone using them as part of the cyber-attack.” –David Scantling, cyber-security expert.
     

    I’m frequently asked about the status of my lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice over the secret, unlawful intrusions into my computers, exposed in 2013. As my federal case moves slowly through court system, there is a new development: ongoing forensic work of my computer laptop system has revealed a second government Internet Protocol (IP) address used in the illegal cyber-attacks on my computer laptop system.
    The IP addresses don’t belong there.
    In a new affidavit filed in federal court last week, cyber-security expert David Scantling states, “[T]he presence of these USPS addresses on [Attkisson’s] computer is not a mistake; it is not a random event; and it is not technically possible for these IP addresses to simply appear on her computer systems without activity by someone using them as part of the cyber-attack.”
    Scantling served as a contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and as a Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employee. He’s familiar with “Advanced Persistent Threat” (“APT”) cyber-attacks. In fact, he developed and deployed similar APT cyber-attacks against foreign government, commercial, insurgent and terrorist targets. He also developed and deployed cyber-security countermeasures in the private sector to defend against such attacks.

    Interestingly, both government IP addresses found embedded deep in my computer system trace to the U.S. Postal Service (U.S.P.S.), which has been known to cooperate with intelligence agencies on various levels. The U.S.P.S. refused to cooperate with me, prior to my lawsuit, after my forensics expert recovered evidence of an IP address mysteriously residing in my computer. At the time, an agency official dismissed the forensics evidence as some sort of unexplainable mistake, and refused to help us learn how its IP addresses are maintained and accessed so we could identify the perpetrators.
    Tracing the evidence of the government-related intrusion to individual participants hasn’t been easy. The attackers attempted to erase their tracks once they were discovered. And neither the U.S.P.S. nor the Department of Justice (DOJ) are voluntarily cooperating. But experts familiar with the tools and tradecraft that are proprietary to government intelligence agencies have painstakingly recovered and pieced together compelling forensic proof as to attribution.
    “There can be no reasonable question that an [Advanced Persistent Threat]-style cyber-attack was carried on Attkisson’s computer systems and Internet connection,” stated Scantling in an affidavit filed last week. “Specifically, the APT methods deployed against [Attkisson’s] computers and Internet connection…were sophisticated and of the type only available to government-type activities and operations.”
    This latest information builds upon earlier forensic examinations already conducted by: a confidential government-linked source, an independent forensics specialist hired by CBS, and a forensics expert consulting on my lawsuit.

    The Counter-Narratives

    The facts at hand are at odds with widespread attempts to establish public counter-narratives, resulting in reckless reporting in the past that wrongly implied the Department of Justice Inspector General (IG) had rejected any notion of an intrusion into my computer(s). In fact, the IG never even reviewed the primary computer in question—a CBS laptop—because CBS News would not permit it. I had asked the IG to examine my personal computer, in which two independent forensics examiners had also identified evidence of intrusions. The IG investigators found and described to me significant suspicious anomalies in that system much like the CBS laptop, unearthing similar efforts by someone to erase data and evidence. However, when the IG computer experts finished their review, the findings went to higher ups and the resulting report was inexplicably withheld from me in its entirety.
    I was shut out.
    Many months later, under pressure from Congress, the IG eventually released a very different-sounding summary of its forensics report to the press. It recast or excluded much of what the investigators had told me they’d found. I attempted to obtain the full report and original notes, some of which I reviewed while the investigation was underway, describing the suspicious activity found on my personal computer. However, the IG has stonewalled my Freedom of Information (FOI) requests for these documents for several years. If the Department of Justice won’t comply with FOI law, then what recourse does a citizen have?
    Meantime, instead of helping us get at the facts, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has attempted to block the federal lawsuit at every turn. For example, their lawyers improperly ignored our first notice asking that the appropriate U.S. Postal Service employee(s) appear to give testimony for discovery. The DOJ lawyers didn’t even go through the appropriate legal processes to oppose discovery; they literally ignored the motion entirely. If the nation’s top law enforcement body doesn’t follow the rule of law, what recourse does a citizen have?
    If the Department of Justice wishes to establish that it had nothing to do with the forensically verified intrusions into my computers, it should help us get to the bottom of who did — instead of obstructing the effort. Above all, in the interest of justice, the Justice Department should want to identify who would have spied on a national journalist reporting on a number of international news stories impacting political officials. To me, there are few more chilling scenarios from the standpoint of constitutional press freedoms and protections in our society.
    Deep gratitude to the honest patriots who have been sources for my case because they believe the government attack on a member of the free press is so egregious. (As the case progresses, it’s better to be on the side of the law than exposed as someone who knew but kept silent. Government whistleblowers will receive legal protection.)

The CIA hack and cell phone surveillance: gang stalking and cell phones

UPDATE 8-13-2020: the link to Spyera software below now goes to an absolutely riduculous page. I suspect that link to Spyera was a front for more spying.
And, the CIA/NSA contractor that is alleged to have dumped the CIAs zero day spy tools (the same types of tools that John Brennans CIA used to spy on US most hallowed institution, the US Congress) has been arrested, and tried, with the result that trial was declared a mistrial. But the agency and its lil’ helpers already had a backup plan: they (whoever “they” are in each case) stashed shitloads of child porn on the guys personal computer servers, which is standard practice in intelligence agencies like the FBI, CIA, Mossad, et al fear that they have a rogue agent who will blow the whistle about military black operations that utilize child porn.
UPDATE  10-04-2020: This post is incredibly popular the last couple days, though its best run.was in 2018, just as CIA contractor Joshua Schulte began to chip away at his political prosecution.
While some have criticised CIA contractor Joshua Schulte for having “weak OpSec (operations security ), in a world of smoke, mirrors, and mirrored cell phones and “electronic implants ” on peoples computers, perhaps no security is the best defense because Schultes own APPs, which are designed to remotely control any and all cell phones, and computers without the user even being aware if it,  provide him the criminal defense of total deniability, as this Obama era critic, and concealed -carry advocate “targeted individual and Libertarian” faces his second trial.
Look at these paragraphs below from Jason Koebler of Vice News (and Vice News itself a politically compromised organization, since its founder abandoned it due to intel agency pressure ) and note that every single claim of “weak security ” and other “evidence ” seeking to tie Schulte to various acts,and actions could easily been performed via a middle man attacker from Israeli, or any other anti-libertarian country.
In other words, any attacker, using Schultes own tools, could impersonate him online, AND make it appear as if he himself was doing it. Intel agency compromise operations,are exactly THAT strange, and brilliant.

  • Schulte’s website allows us to easily connect many of his online personas and accounts to his real identity, discern his politics, his places of residence, and identify his friends and family members. This all came from someone who should, in theory, know better as someone who had access to highly sensitive information.
  • In addition to Project Wizard, Schulte also uploaded screenshots of his Gmail inbox, which have his name as well as emails that show information about his bank, his OKCupid account, his cell phone provider, his friends’ and families’ names, and more.
  • There’s a selfie he took of himself holding a “FUCK OBAMA” pint glass, and a shirtless mirror selfie he took in a hotel bathroom. There’s a folder called “facebook_convos” that are just a series of screenshots of him beefing with his Facebook friends and family about politics. He uploaded a resume, group projects and homework from college, and design files for a 3D printed gun called “The Liberator.”
  • There are narrated video tours of the inside of his house, screenshots of emails he sent to activists advocating for concealed handgun carry permits in Texas, saved IRC chats of “Josh” saying the n-word over and over, and yet more screenshots of his Gmail inbox, which—in the same screenshot—prove that we are looking at “Joshua Schulte’s” inbox and also reveal the pseudonym he used on several different websites. Other files he uploaded tie this pseudonym to a Blogger where he wrote extensively about his libertarian politics. The pseudonym is also present in logged-in screenshots he took of an online quiz that tested his “Brain Performance Index” on a site called Lumosity; he also uploaded a screenshot of the score he got on a MENSA practice test.

In the meantime, there,are literally thousands of APPs that can and do monitor phones in real time.
Targeted individuals often claim that their cell phones are being used as tracking devices, and that intelligence agencies are using them for target practice and experimentation. Now, we know that part of that is true: A disgruntled CIA contractor is alleged to have dumped a list of all the tools that the CIA has been using to spy on us via our cell phones for the last decades. But don’t just point the finger at the CIA, because then, you WILL sound crazy, and Dr.’s Sheridan and James might get a whack at your mind, mind mind!

UPDATE: This post is becoming one of the most popular on this blog. While I experienced “cell phone mirroring” as early as 2010, and “offline computer situation rooms” as early as 2001, you may have just discovered this vast plot against constitutional liberty. Read on, and use my ‘search this blog’ section to find posts relevant to your own OGS.
Then, in a side note, be aware that the US agencies have long farmed out all of their intelligence collection to private contractors, Israeli’s and the Five Eyes Alliance, so any given abuse of your phone could be by : any of 17 US agencies, or any of Britains eight agencies, and many more, not counting the douchebags who work in private security firms, and even local police agencies-and ALL OF IT without a warrant, or even a paper trail.

And the fact is that ALL 17 intelligence agencies in the United States have turned on American citizens, using us for target practice of varying shades of “illegal and unconstitutional” so, they have lot’s of Company (there’s a joke in there, somewhere, about “the Corporation, lol). Your country is also doing these same things to you and your countrymen.

UPDATE: This is one of my most popular posts. So I thought I would add a link for software tat you can buy to do some of the same stuff to these agents and agencies that they are doing to you. Here’s Spyera mirroring and more for cell phones, but there are many others you can use, many freeware (but be careful-most freeware comes with the hidden cost that it was created by-you guessed it….)

You see, these days, electronic tools and toys, entrapments and entrainments of electronic surveillance and propaganda tactics that were once directed at millionaires and mobsters, third world dictators and Iran Contra’s and Osama bin Laden are now directed at ordinary common people who buy houses next to the fire chief, or who seek to trim the budget; or smoke a joint here and there, or who forgot to pay their vehicle tax. This is partially due to the fact  that all of the agencies are crawling with corruption, and blackmailing each other, in the Spirit of the LEIU’s, who, bar none, perform more black bag jobs around America than any CIA agent ever did.

Related Story: Watch this video to see how some of us knew in 2005-2008 that our phones were being used as tracking devices. And, that some would repeat our conversations back to us. Watch it from 4:27 minutes. Disruption campaigns that target activists and others take on purely diabolical and bizarre proportions within six degree’s of a persons relations. The newscatser notes that the FBI use cell phones to “keep tabs on critical conversations between known members of the mafia.”

(psssst: Don’t tell anyone, but this story here about how retired LEO’s work with current LEO’s and intel gencies to perform assasinations and black bag jobs is one of America’s best kept seekrits)
And many wonder how it is that they could write something online, and then, shortly thereafter, have a squad car pull up outside their house.

This is enabled by the highly integrated, un-constitutional mechanism of OGS and the tracking in real time of targeted communications of targeted individuals, and coordinated with massive database abuse and fraud on the courts at the local, national, and international level.
Any researcher of OGS can verify that at least, it is true, that indeed 17 intelligence agencies ARE following targets, and doing many other nefarious things as well. Here, below, from the Intercept, is the case of the CIA software that mirrors your cell phone, and uses it to perform MIM attacks on YOURSELF; and here is a full list of the tools that these agencies use to target journalists, whistle blowers, the neighborhood crank, wankers, dole dippers and a few potheads the same as if they are all terrorists, with download links from Wikileaks). But be careful….honeynets and limited hang outs go two ways.

A concerted effort by the CIA produced a library of software attacks to crack into Android smartphones and Apple iPhones, including some that could take full control of the devices, according to documents in a trove of files released by WikiLeaks Tuesday.
The attacks allow for varying levels of access — many powerful enough to allow the attacker to remotely take over the “kernel,” the heart of the operating system that controls the operation of the phone, or at least to have so-called “root” access, meaning extensive control over files and software processes on a device. These types of techniques would give access to information like geolocation, communications, contacts, and more. They would most likely be useful for targeted hacking, rather than mass surveillance. Indeed, one document describes a process by which a specific unit within the CIA “develops software exploits and implants for high priority target cellphones for intelligence collection.”
The WikiLeaks documents also include detailed charts concerning specific attacks the CIA can apparently perform on different types of cellphones and operating systems, including recent versions of iOS and Android — in addition to attacks the CIA has borrowed from other, public sources of malware. Some of the exploits, in addition to those purportedly developed by the CIA, were discovered and released by cybersecurity companies, hacker groups, and independent researchers, and purchased, downloaded, or otherwise acquired by the CIA, in some cases through other members of the intelligence community, including the FBI, NSA, and the NSA’s British counterpart GCHQ , the documents indicate.
One borrowed attack, Shamoon, is a notorious computer virus capable of stealing data and then completely destroying hardware. Persistence, a tool found by the CIA, allows the agency control over the device whenever it boots up again. Another acquired attack, SwampMonkey, allows CIA to get root privileges on undisclosed Android devices.
“This is a very impressive list,” tweeted former GCHQ analyst Matt Tait, noting that at least some of the attacks appeared to still be viable.
Matt Green, cryptographer at Johns Hopkins University, agreed the leak was “impressive,” but concluded there weren’t many “technically surprising” hacks. This lack of originality may have stemmed from a desire on the part of the agency to avoid detection, judging from one document contained in the trove, in which apparent CIA personnel discuss an NSA hacking toolkit known as Equation Group and its public exposure. It was also previously known that the CIA was targeting smartphones; drawing on top-secret documents, The Intercept in 2015 reported on an agency campaign to crack into the iPhone and other Apple products.
In addition to the CIA’s efforts, an FBI hacking division, the Remote Operations Unit, has also been working to discover exploits in iPhones, one of the WikiLeaks documents, the iOS hacking chart, indicates. Last February, while investigating the perpetrator of a mass shooting in San Bernardino, the FBI attempted argued in court that Apple was obligated to give the FBI access to its phones by producing a weakened version of the device’s operating system. If the WikiLeaks documents are authentic, it would appear FBI and other elements of the intelligence community are already deeply involved in discovering their own way into iPhones. The compromise of the documents also calls into question government assurances in the San Bernardino case that any exploit developed by Apple to allow the FBI access to the killer’s phone would never be exposed to criminals or nation states….
