White House Hack Attack
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill Gertz

Original Article

Posted By:nhchemist, 9/30/2012 8:45:13 PM

Hackers linked to China’s government broke into one of the U.S. government’s most sensitive computer networks, breaching a system used by the White House Military Office for nuclear commands, according to defense and intelligence officials familiar with the incident. One official said the cyber breach was one of Beijing’s most brazen cyber attacks against the United States and highlights a failure of the Obama administration to press China on its persistent cyber attacks.

Comments:
Why does the incompetence of this administration not surprise me?

In other news, while the Chinese successfully hacked into our defense network, somehow they accidentally triggered multiple launches. It was quite a coincidence that Beijing was the sole target...

I am hard pressed to even think up a more corrupt, incompetent and pathetic administration! But wait, I am sure they will sink lower tomorrow.

This is my standard comment tonight on many of these articles on L.com

Don't forget to thank the Clinton administration's relaxing of regulations keeping high tech computers out of Chinese hands. For no other reason than the Clinton's own givng natures, of course. Cough! (Loral) cough! (Kaffeklatch cash) Cough!

This had to have been an "inside job". There should be no way that a server in China could "physically" access our defense network otherwise. (The thumb drive attack on Iran's nuclear centrifuges is an example of an "inside job". Someone physically accessed a "legitimate" computer on their network.) In this case, someone had to physically attach a hardware "bridge" to permit access by a computer outside this "closed" network. Software hacking notwithstanding and beside the point. (This network was physically closed, wasn't it??????)

Why is this not considered an act of war? This is incredibly dangerous to this nation and should be treated as a sneak attack. There must be consequences to China over this.

I need to add that radio uplink access to a military satellite would also come under "physical access". That prospect is even scarier. It would mean that the Chinese could hack anything that is tied into the satellites. As #8 indicates, that would constitute a war action on the level of our cracking the Japanese code in WWII.

I hope I'm not banned for posting again, but don't forget the drone that was downed ("meaconed"?) in Iran a few months ago. That drone was controlled by military satellites, and a bit of reverse engineering may have led to the physical "link". There also might have been more than we were told in the tail of the helicopter that crashed during the UBL raid in Abbottabad. There might also have been a mole at one of our bases in the ME. I'll stop now - too scary to think about this any further.

There is obviously an extremely dangerous breach of security in the Øbama regime. The terrorists in Libya knew exactly when and where to attack our embassy to capture and kill our ambassador. It was reported our ambassador was also viciously tortured before he was killed. Apparently there was some kind of big CIA operation going on in that embassy the terrorists knew about and may have been the true target of the attack.

We have had documented and undocumented Chinese pouring into this country for years now. Many find their way into tech jobs. I've worked with a few who are engineers. I wouldn't be surprised if some have passed their acquired knowledge back to Beijing.

Wow, just wow. How much incompetence and corruption needs to come out on Obama and this administration to wake up the media to the fact that if the United States goes down we ALL go down with it; not just us either, the world would erupt into chaos. I have never been more frightened in my entire life for the safety of my kids and grand kids as I am now. What will the future hold for them? This is more than an election, it is a matter of life and death for this nation. We must win or history will show that America was lost on our watch. Pardon my drama.

So let's speculate a bit. You are the head of China's Intelligence cyber unit. You have cracked yor way into this system. Do you:
A) Do nothing and watch how they react?
B) Cause the U.S. to launch a pre-emptive strike against Russia?
C) Cause the U.S. to launch a first strike against a rural remote portion of China to justify retaliation?
D) All the above in sequence to assure your sole domination of the world economically and militarily?

I liked this part: "The WHMO arranges the president’s travel and also provides medical support and emergency medical services, according to the White House’s website." Did you ever stop to think that with what we owe China, THEY might want him out of office, just to protect THEIR interest? His medical records just might surface, or his travel could be "interrupted" , unexpectedly, natch.

The Chinese have selected exactly the American missiles they want to launch.

They picked one from Column A and two from Column B - - with hot-and-sour soup and egg rolls.

But wait - - they'll be hungry for more U.S. missiles in about an hour.

Launch the missiles - - and leave the egg rolls.

For the top defense computers, networks and various secure systems, there is supposed to be, in place, a plan to immediately change any and all access codes in the event that ANY breach has been made on any of the systems. It's done that way just to prevent anyone or any country to gain access and attempt to use the information against us. But, given the incompetence of this administration, I wonder if this was actually done.

How NH Dems made Havenstein
eligible for governor
Union Leader [Manchester, NH], by Drew Cline    Original Article
Posted By: nhchemist- 4/10/2014 10:25:30 PM     Post Reply
Walter Havenstein of Alton is running for the Republican nomination for governor. Democrats claim he is ineligible because although he has lived in New Hampshire since 1999 and maintained his legal domicile here all that time, he also was a legal resident of Maryland from 2008-2011. The New Hampshire Constitution states that the governor “shall have been an inhabitant of this state for 7 years next preceding.” (Snip) Because of the Democrats’ insistence that “domicile” be kept strictly separate from “residency,” Havenstein has been a legally domiciled inhabitant of New Hampshire since 1999.

Sanitary-minded pool-goers who preach "no peeing in the pool," despite ordinary and Olympic swimmers admitting to the practice, now have scientific evidence to back up their concern. Researchers are reporting that when mixed, urine and chlorine can form substances that can cause potential health problems. Their study appears in ACS´ journal Environmental Science & Technology. (Snip) They conclude that swimmers can improve pool conditions by simply urinating where they´re supposed to -- in the bathrooms.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana recently told a Nashua, N.H., audience about his experience with a school bully. Bullying is a nationwide problem, but the bully Jindal was describing was U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who recently tried to crush school choice in Louisiana. Last Monday, March 17, parents in New York City who send their children to Success Academy, a Harlem charter school, filed suit in federal court to stop another school bully, Mayor Bill de Blasio, from denying them previously arranged space in a public school building.

He or she was obliged to write something pleasant about the car´s driving. The "North American Fiat 500L delivers excellent performance and great driving pleasure," this person perjured blandly.

James E. Ryan, a former state representative from Franklin who served as a state chairman for then-Sen. Joe Biden´s presidential primary campaign in 2008, was arrested without incident in Connecticut Tuesday as a fugitive from justice. The state of New Hampshire listed him as a fugitive and issued a warrant for his capture on Feb. 21 when his whereabouts were unknown, said Jeff Lyons, spokesman for the state Department of Corrections. Ryan, 56, entered state prison on Feb. 9, 2010, and was paroled June 24, 2013. Before he left the state and was listed as a fugitive, he was to

The American gun control movement is going corporate. Still reeling from the stinging legislative defeats of 2013, proponents of tougher firearm regulations are increasingly turning their focus to private sector campaigns. Gun control groups have claimed victories in recent months, successfully pushing Starbucks to declare guns unwelcome in stores and persuading Facebook to crack down on unregulated firearm solicitations. With no end in sight to the congressional gridlock that has thwarted more stringent federal gun laws, groups say they will continue to apply pressure on major companies.

Branford, Conn. - A Branford police officer is off the job after he got into a fight online with someone about gun ownership. That officer is on leave after he told someone online he couldn’t wait to bang down his door and take his gun. A heated Facebook discussion with a Branford police officer that John Cinque says the cop took too far. “I’ll give my left nut to have the ability or have the opportunity to kick your door in and take your guns.” That was one of the comments Cinque says was over the line. But there is a whole thread of questionable remarks said to be posted by Officer Joe Peterson.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
