ITS JUST WONG.
WASHINGTON – China was behind the massive hack that compromised tens of thousands of Microsoft Exchange email servers worldwide, the Biden administration claims, as the United States joined with other world powers to blame Beijing’s intelligence agency for a wide array of malicious cyber operations that targeted dozens of industries. The condemnation from the U.S. and its allies came as the Justice Department announced indictments against four Chinese nationals, including three state security officers, who were accused in a years long hacking scheme in which they allegedly stole trade secrets, confidential business information, sensitive technologies and scientific research from dozens of companies, universities and government entities in several countries, including the United States.
Microsoft alleged Chinese spies exploited flaws in the Exchange Server software to steal email inboxes from U.S. organizations. Pulse Secure VPN hacking also hit transportation, telecom firms, FireEye the US led western intelligence spying alliance says
Blah blah article, after article, after article, repeats this allegation all based when you read the fine print and not the headlines on unnamed intelligence agencies or endorsed by tech firms whose business partners are the USA own spy services.
Then at last I found a case where the alleged hacks can be pinned down to an app which China is said to be hacking. Or did I?
“The popular short-form video sharing app, which is already banned in India, is facing a similar roadblock in the US, where the Trump administration has escalated its threats to ban the platform along with WeChat. Even as ByteDance and Microsoft are hammering out a possible deal, the big question is: should you delete TikTok off your phone? Privacy and security worries about the app have run rampant in recent weeks, with the US government warning that it puts ‘your private information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.’ To answer the question, the best way is to unpack the app itself and follow the data trail. That’s exactly what security researcher Baptiste Robert (@fs0c131y) did.And what he found is proof that the app isn’t doing anything different from what other apps like Facebook are already doing.In fact, a recent CIA assessment obtained by The New York Times found no evidence that the app had been used by Chinese spy agencies to intercept data. Aug2020″.
Desperate for a direct link I find talk of a firm called Cycraft being hacked by alleged hackers and who is Cycraft exactly?
CyCraft Japan joins the Nippon CSIRT Association in 2020. CyCraft Technology describes itself as “the fastest-growing cybersecurity firm in Asia.” CyCraft boast it clients include multiple government agencies, Fortune Global 500 firms, top banks and financial institutions, critical infrastructure, airlines, telecommunications, hi-tech firms, and SMEs. In Q1 2020, CyCraft won multiple gold awards in Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.
So your telling me the ;Chinese hackers targeted a cyber security firm.
Whose mates are who exactly?
“NCA was founded in 2007 with the primary goal of fostering cooperation, intelligence sharing, and strengthening trustworthy relations between CSIRTs in Japan to better facilitate prompt, intelligence-driven responses. NCA provides a secure forum for members to cooperate with each other and solve common problems collectively. “NCA CSIRT team, from various organizations across multiple industries and fields, gather regularly at NSA conferences to discuss relevant and current threats and trends, observed attack behavior, attack and defensive playbook modifications, and more”.
NSA stands for national Security Agency the USA cyber-spies who do hack people computers and have being proven to do this on numerous occasions.
SPIES LIKE US – CYBER SPOOKS COMPLAIN ABOUT BAD GUYS DOING WHAT THEY DO
But what about that Microsoft email hack?
Well funny you should mention that.
In 2013 Microsoft collaborated closely with US intelligence services to allow users’ communications to be intercepted, including helping the National Security Agency to circumvent the company’s own encryption, according to top-secret documents obtained by the Guardian. The files provided by Edward Snowden illustrate the scale of co-operation between Silicon Valley and the intelligence agencies over the last three years. They also shed new light on the workings of the top-secret Prism program, which was disclosed by the Guardian and the Washington Post last month.
Microsoft also worked with the FBI’s Data Intercept Unit to “understand” potential issues with a feature in Outlook.com that allows users to create email aliases;
In July last year, nine months after Microsoft bought Skype, the NSA boasted that a new capability had tripled the amount of Skype video calls being collected through Prism;
Material collected through Prism is routinely shared with the FBI and CIA, with one NSA document describing the program as a “team sport”.
While the actual specifics of the 2021 hack on Microsoft remains unclear and the allegations against China are at this stage no better than the claims used to bring about war in Iraq in 2002. A war began on the pretext of ‘proof’ the intelligence community which was later proven to have been fabricated. After it killed over 100,000 people and no one involved in that conflict had access to nuclear weapons capable of killing hundreds of millions.
This is not to suggest that China and Russia are not involved in hacking, that would be naive to say the least. Firms like Hainan Xiandun Technology Development Co,who targeted various industries – including defense, education, biopharmaceutical, aviation, maritime proprietary information would economically benefit Chinese companies whether their is a direct link to China (who lets face it are no saints) or not.
Yet three major points need to be underscored and bold lettered here.
One: The evidence offered up today in terms of the narrative state like China and Russia alone are behind the wave of cyber attacks plaguing industry and the public is of still of a low quality. No better than that offered up for Iraq and proven to be fake. Are we really going to go down that road again?
Two; Issue one is compounded by the fact that those making the allegation have a credibility issue themselvess having being caught lying to the public for decades as the Pentagon Papers, The Church Committee, The Iran Arms for Hostages Contra scandal, the BCCI Banking intelligence scandal, The Chilcott Inquiry and Wikileaks all testify to among many other scandals involving the Five Eye Intelligence club.
Three; There ‘witnesses’ are American corporations who are not only rivals of China but are the only parties to date who can be documented for certain as hacking the public on behalf of intelligence agencies. Agencies who are of course part of the Five Eyes club and now blaming China as they ask for even more money and power and the right to kick your civil rights to the curb. Civil rights which they have been caught abusing illegally and secretly on behalf of the US corporations now supporting their claims regarding China.
Do China and Russia engage in cyber espionage? Absolutely.
A PAPER TRAIL WHICH DOES NOT END IN MOSCOW
Yet so do the western powers and lets not loose sight of the fact that to date its only western powers and their corporate allies who can be identified with 100% certainty of having specifically orchestrated mass hack against ordinary civilians.
Further when we look at the case of spying against Five Eyes the case of Cameron Ortis, the transnational (where organised crime and state meet in the dark) showed the real threat posed to Five Eyes came not from state actors such as China or Russia but that Ortis was spying for non state actors namely crime cartels – while five of Ortis own colleagues have launched a private prosecution saying Ortis was being protected by his superiors. The situation is reminiscent of the plot lines for the Bond movie Spectre where The Nine Eyes program, a project of alliance of nine countries’ secret services (which are a parody of Five Eyes) to share intelligence to create a global secret network with virtually unlimited possibilities of spying on the people in the interest of national security becomes compromised by Nine Eyes model of public private partnerships with non state actors and becomes instead a vehicle used to commit crime on behalf of organised crime syndicates whose power and wealth rivals that of traditional nation state actors.
And in the case of the 170 million frozen by NZ police in 2020 identified as belonging to the Russian bitcoin hacker Alexander Vinnik, who was based in Cypress, it should be noted that money was not frozen until an internal investigation was launched following Ortis arrest.
Vinnik accounts in NZ however date back to 2003, set off a bank warning (not acted on) in 2010 and can be found in the leaked Paradise Papers database. Where it is being speculated the data base itself was leaked by Russian intelligence – a view formed by some due to the fact the leaks lack of any really incriminating data on Putin inner circle namely) relating to firms with ties to known money launderers – especially those with Russian Oil Cypress connections which Russian authorities have being keen to investigate as will. If the Paradise Papers did come not from Russia it seems strange it has so much material which incriminates the West and their is nothing there which makes Putin look bad.
Vinniks New Zealand firms at 412 Lake Road Takapuna Auckland fits the profile used to launder hundred of millions of dollars through New Zealand in 2009 that were used by Russian cartels – which my two books State Secrets 1 & State Secrets II document, with company files and photos, as being active in NZ.
The Alfa Bank, which is one of Russia’s biggest banks and whose owners have longstanding ties to Mr. Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu who was accused of running a secret cyber-communications channel between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian authorities which however the Democrats failed to prove On June 11, the bank filed lawsuits alleging a criminal conspiracy by unidentified defendants (John Doe), who ostensibly forged emails by manipulating DNS data to make it appear that the bank was communicating with the Trump Organization. where the companies that owned and administered the Trump server are located.
The two similar complaints allege a criminal conspiracy by unidentified defendants (John Doe), who ostensibly forged emails by manipulating DNS data to make it appear that the bank was communicating with the Trump Organization. That story then tits for tats depending on the bias of the numerous authors who exonerate and demonize Trump based on personal bias with few considering the notion Trump is every much a part of the Deep State (driven by big oil, arms, banking and now big water) as the Clintons, his old party pals, ever where.
MOORE LOVE FROM RUSSIA BUT NO LOVE FOR PUTIN
It needs to be noted in Alfa Bank affair you will find another New Zealand connection as the bank set up a charity called the Altimo Foundation. This would be chaired by Michael Moore the former Christchurch MP, who became New Zealand Prime Minister before being appointed to top role in several international organisations including the WTO, UN as well as being New Zealand Ambassador to Washington in 2010, during the Obama administration.
Moore was made ambassador the same year he accepted the chair of the Altimo Foundation and was made a member of the Trilateral Commission member and a member of New Zealand top government advisory board the Privy Council. The Trilateral Commission is a non-governmental policy discussion group closely associated with organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations which are used to shape public opinion and influence western media.
Altimo patron Altimo Holdings & Investments Ltd. is a British Virgin Islands company based in Cypress. A majority of its shares are owned by CTF Holdings, a Gibraltar limited liability headed by Vladimir Ashurkov which backs Alexei Anatolievich Navalny a Russian opposition leader, lawyer, and anti-corruption activist. Navalny came to international prominence by organizing anti-government demonstrations and running for office to advocate reforms against corruption in Russia, and against President Vladimir Putin and his government. Altimo Foundation is also named in the Paradise Paper data base, which has unearthed large scale money laundering and tax evasion.
In August 2020, Navalny was hospitalized in serious condition after he was poisoned with a Novichok nerve agent. Navalny collected information and talked about the work of United Russia in the housing and utilities sector. Special attention was paid by Navalny to Tomskvodokanal LLC. The company engaged in the maintenance of water supply networks throughout the city of Tomsk on behalf of the French group Veolia and Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) investing in water and sewer infrastructure. Velioa is one of the major players in New Zealand’s emerging water privatisation with Veolia in 2019 wining a 17 million council-owned water services company, for Wellington Water, to operate and maintain the four wastewater treatment plants that serve metropolitan Wellington. The contract was secured after waste water leaked following a power outage (which was also the means by which Fancy Bears hacked NZ stock exchange). in 2019 The World Bank today announced a two-year debarment of French water engineering company OTV and the one-year debarment of Brazilian water treatment technology company Veolia Water Technologies Brasil Ltda. (VWT Brasil) in connection with fraudulent and collusive practices during a bidding process under the World Bank-financed Río Bogotá Environmental Recuperation and Flood Control Project in Colombia.
Again its not an issue that Putin is a ruthless dictator, Nor is this author arguing Putin would not throw his own people under the bus if an opportunity to enrich himself came along. However so many of Putin’s so called pro-democracy critics have themselves a record of corruption and collusion with western intelligence agency as well as the western oil and water and banking interest.
Thus whiles western spies accuse China and Russia of hacking corporations and state controlled critical infrastructure which they increasingly maintain will be the target of a 9/11 style cyber attack against the public lets not forget the issue of Russian hacks on public utilities by Russian hackers so far does not just include Putin back hackers. It does however suggest hackers who have western intelligence connections.
‘VEOLIA ALOHA’ SMART CITY MADNESS IN THE AGE OF FULL PRIVATISATION & MASS SURVIALLANCE
In 2018 red flags on NZ cyber security began to ring loudly in Waikato when an engineer discovered the wastewater was discharging into the Waikato River. Turning off the wastewater station’s pumps “required access to its computer software”. This “required a password” (but not a password that was user specific) meaning the change was deliberate. Anyone with access to the computer terminals within the greater Hamilton city area that were connected with this software could have done this. The Council was however unable to find out who changed that setting or how they gained access.
The year beforehand 2017 Russian oligarch Mikhail Alexander Khimich (whose cohorts include Cyber hacker Kim Dotcom) invested in NZ water industry in Waikato specifically investing in Ordover Trust and subsidiaries Waiwera water, Waiwerea Thermal Resort Ltd, Waiwera Global, Waiwera Water Ltd, Waiwera Infinity Ltd, and Robert Graham Institute Natural Waters The chief executive of the Robert Graham Institute, part of the Waiwera Group owned by Mikhail Khimich is Soviet spy who defected tothe West Dr Alexander Kouzminov, a former KGB Biological weapons inventor specialising in water borne disease and contaminents, was by then was working as Waikato’s Senior Policy Advisor for Water Policy, Science and Strategy at Waikato Regional Council.
In 2014 Kouzminov, who tested more than twice the legal drink-drive limit, was let off a drunk driving conviction. Like Khimich leniency had had being, on the grounds he would lose the right to travel overseas as a consultant for “several foreign intelligence agencies”. Another of Khimich’s former business associate is New Zealand citizen Alexander Kirichuk – formerly of the Ukraine. The business relationship soured so Kirichuck says after a “Russian who moved in similar circles” attempted to “recruit” Kirichuck daughter Victoria Kirichuk, a New Zealand police officer. After declining the offer to access the police database – a harassment campaign was waged against her and her family, which included death threats and instances of intruders on their property. The family filed multiple reports about the attempt and subsequent incidents with police, SIS, the US consulate, and the IPCA. These documents formed the basis of a RNZ investigation into why a whistle blower, an honest cop who said no to a bribe from Russian criminals, became the one hounded out of law enforcement with pressure put on her from on high, by authorities who instead seemed keen to protect the villains when she tried to complain of their attempt to bribe her to access the police computer network on their behalf.
While in contrast to the allegations of Russia and China hacking the public with ransom ware Israel Pegasus spyware an illegal surveillance software created by Israeli cyber intelligence firm NSO Group was and is turning up in the hands of cartels, dictators and rouge governments who date are using it not just to spy on people but is being used to track and hunt those it plans to assassinate.
Such as Jamal Kashoggi the Saudi journalist who revealed the Saudi Lockheed Martin backed Vison 2030 was not a blue print for Saudi modernisation (which would hasten democratic reforms) slick smart cities and renewable energy based on smart technology but was in reality a plan to make Saudi Arabia an arms and surveillance technology manufacturing hub in a move which would entrench the outdated Saudi patriarch and undermine democracy. A joint investigation of over a dozen media groups across the world probed an unprecedented leaked list of 50,000 mobile phone numbers of individuals mostly living in client countries of the NSO Group. (Termed the Pegasus Project, the collaboration of 16 media groups, including The Wire, was led by French journalism non-profit Forbidden Stories, which had accessed the data. The list was then subjected to further examination by media partners, with forensic analysis of phones conducted by Amnesty International’s Security Lab)
The 2009 Russian New Zealand laundering incident would see John Key promise to write a report and if he did he did little else. As was the case when New Zealand emerged prominently in later banks leak which incriminated numerous corporations and western politicians for tax evasions, laundering criminal proceeds and other acts of sleaze. Ironically many of these leaks which have incriminated western parties have also being attributed to Russian intelligence obtained through hacking. Those involved in the 2009 money laundering affair, which saw Ortis the Five Eyes traitor being hand pick by his superior (whom Ortis colleagues say were deliberately ignoring red flags) to ‘investigate’ it John Key styles, included American bankers who previously worked in US special forces and who have being in the heart of Vanuatu tax haven banking since the 1980’s Santos Rebellion. Back when a coup was launched on the island by a shadow US group known as the Phoenix Foundation who wanted to establish a money laundering hub who could be linked to many other well known names that have featured in CIA scandals including the Iran Contra Affair and the CIA’s assassination program Operation Phoenix.
The laundering ring also included transactions involving Renaissance Moscow, a merchant bank begun by the man who helped bankroll John Key’s stint as Prime Minister (following Keys career in Merill Lynch) Stephen Jennings formerly of Credit Suisse and before that the New Zealand Treasury Department. The head of Renaissance at the time is named Igor Sagiryan with Yuri Sagaidak, a former KGB general named as the vice president of Renaissance Capital. Later events show Renaissance who had enjoyed good relations with Russia was in the business of diddling both Russia and the USA or at the very less became a vehicle which facilitated such crimes.
Igor Sagiryan was born in Tbilisi in 1952, graduated from Moscow State University and completed a joint post-graduate program of the Institute for U.S. and Canadian Studies and Harvard University. In 1987, he headed the department of press and information at the Committee for Youth Organizations of the USSR. In 1988–1989, he worked as a consultant at the International Department of the President of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. In 1991, Sagiryan helped Vladimir Putin launch a foreign bank subsidiary.
A further two ex FSB operatives and Renaissance employee were accused by the FBI hacking 500 million Yahoo email accounts in method closely resembling the Microsoft hack (while Wikileaks shows a record of corrupt US officials, within the Clinton administration, using Yahoo account to send email with sensitive information despite the Yahoo hack being common knowledge).
The same year a researcher working for Kaspersky further discovered Stuxnet, the US-Israeli worm that wrecked nearly a thousand Iranian centrifuges and became the world’s first openly acknowledged cyberweapon. Kaspersky’s anti-hackers would also expose a second weaponized computer program, which they dubbed Flame. It was subsequently revealed to be another US-Israeli operation aimed at Iran.
US court papers have called this the so-called “Magnitsky money” – a £150m tax fraud scheme in Russia tied to Renaissance Capital. Hermitage Capital was the largest foreign investment fund in Russia until 2005, when he was expelled from the country and Hermitage’s offices were raided. It is poignant to note when assessing Sagiryan loyalties to Russia that when Sagiryan was confronted over the Hermitage tax irregularities he urges the matter not be pursued through the authorities, (which Sagiryan as a Russian spy would not fear) but instead file complaints “unofficially” with his Sagiryan’s own contacts in the FSB (formerly the KGB) and to let Sagiryan quietly settle the matter. Even his critics admit they were at the time uncertain as to whether they were dealing with the FSB or the Russian mafia whose loyalties belong not to the Kremlin but the highest bidder and whose influence within government at times exceeds that of the actual government such is their reach and clout.
Sergei Magnitsky was an auditor at a Moscow law firm when he discovered what he said was a massive fraud by Russian tax officials and police officers according to Hermitage CEO William Bowder. After reporting the alleged theft of $230m (£150m) to the authorities, he was himself detained in 2008 on suspicion of aiding tax evasion and died in custody in November 2009. He acted as a legal adviser for London-based Hermitage Capital Management (HCM), where colleagues insist the case against him was fabricated to make him halt his investigations. Or at less that the version told by Bill Bowder which has being accepted as gospel by the same media peddling the Russian hack story who are the same people who accepted Iraq had weapons of mass destruction becuase the US intelligence community said so.
Court documents show how alleged wire transfers from the Russian organised crime group going into the UK bank account of Renaissance Capital – a Russian investment banking firm, which has offices in London. The US attorney’s office of New York said the organised Russian crime group, along with corrupt Russian government officials, “engaged in a broad pattern of money laundering in order to conceal the proceeds of the fraud scheme”.
Again no one is doubting corrupt Russians were involved but the question is were the Russian involved pro Putin or anti Putin? On November 22, 2019, German news magazine Das Spiegel did not think so and it published an article in which it claimed Browder accusations concerning the “Magnitsky Case”, “do not withstand thorough examination”. The English version appeared on November 26, 2019. After Browder filed a complaint against this article with chief editorship of Der Spiegel and the German Press Council, Der Spiegel published a further article, releasing its evidence and emphasising its stance on the matter.
“the German Der Spiegel, has run a story by Benjamin Bidder, a reporter posted to Russia for seven years, who exposes Browder as a fraud and his Magnitsky story as a fake. The lead by Bidder says: “When the US imposes sanctions for human rights violations, they invoke the case of one prisoner allegedly murdered in Russia. They are based on the reports of the investor Bill Browder. Is the West taken in by a fraudster? Yes, and he proves it“
There now is an ongoing lobbying campaign to repeal the Magnitsky Act (the “Campaign”) and rewrite the history of the Magnitsky Clinton ‘Uranium One story’ to suit those it incriminates as they weave a story short on hard evidence and based on hear say alone.
The Campaign’s three objectives are:
A.To repeal the 2012 Magnitsky Act.
B.To remove the name “Magnitsky” from the Global Magnitsky Bill, which is currently passing through Congress.
C. To discredit the established version of events regarding the theft of $230 million from the Russian Treasury and the death of Sergei Magnitsky as told by William Browder, CEO of Hermitage (“Mr.Browder”), so as to assist the Campaign in meeting its objectives in relation to repealing the Magnitsky Law.
THE PETITION STATES. “I am writing to urge you to appoint a special counsel to look into the I am writing to urge you to appoint a special counsel to look into the Uranium One controversy surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as well as the relationship between Fusion OPS, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Clinton campaign, and Russian actors. controversy surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as well as the relationship between Fusion OPS, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Clinton campaign, and Russian actors. President Bill Clinton received $500,000*1 for a single Moscow speech from a Kremlin-tied Russian bank that was promoting Uranium One stock – all while the State Department under Secretary Clinton’s leadership was deciding to approve Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One. In 2017 it has emerged that the US Department of Justice has traced proceeds of the Magnitsky fraud to a bank account in Bournemouth held by Renaissance Capital Investment Management Ltd. Renaissance Capital (Russian finance corporation) “.
The firm is based in Nicosia, Cyprus. Renaissance Securities (Cyprus) Limited operates as a subsidiary of Renaissance Capital Holdings Limited. Renaissance Securities (Cyprus) Limited.is regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (Licence No: KEPEY 053/04).Founded in 1995.
Renaissance Capital is owned by New Zealand Stephen Jennings the man who banked roll John Key. Renaissance Capital was then co-owned by Russian oligarch Mikhail Prokhorov, who also owned the Brooklyn Nets basketball team. He unsuccessfully ran for Russian president against Putin in 2012.
Not all Russians are fan of Putin.
In 2016 agents of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) raided the Moscow offices of a company controlled by billionaire oligarch Mikhail Prokhorov. The FSB said on April 15 as part of an ongoing tax-evasion investigation.
Renaissance Capital was involved in selling Yukos’ assets, while reporting to the U.S. government via Ambassador William Burns (a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency) on the sales progress.
Its shareholders include Mr Yukos Oil’s former chief Mikhai Khodorkovsky who transferred his Yukos stake in 2005 to his former Russian-Israeli business partner Leonid Nevzlin, who now stands to be the main beneficiary of the compensation. Mr Nevzlin, based in Israel, heads the shareholders’ group called GML.
Mr Khodorkovsky now runs a US backed pro-democracy activist group called Open Russia, which was blacklisted as an “undesirable organisation” by the Russian authorities in 2017.
Yukos shareholders include Richard V Allen the former American National Security Adviser, who lives part time in Queenstown and who acted as the ‘bagman’ for Project Democracy a political action fund raising group which sought to assist the Iran Contra as the CIA run illegal operations, raise capital used to buy black-market Russian arms and fight proxy wars against the Soviet Union. Project Democracy contra funds would later be linked to Mexican drugs dealers and organised crime groups during the 1980s. This is not long after Vanuatu was first targeted by the CIA to be a money laundering hub for shady money from the agencies mates which my 1990s and 2000’s books State Secret document in relation to its links to National MPs such as Ross Meurant, a former policeman turned arms dealer, who was also a shareholder in Prok Bank Vanuatu along with former KGB officers Larissa and Victor Shumilov in 1995.
Prok would be established like Alexander Vinnik New Zealand based companies long before cyber allegation where being levelled by the US against Russia with the support of the collective fire power of western media – specifically those who are also affiliates with the deep state’s Council of Foreign Relations lobby (CFR). Back in the glory days of post Perestroika when Moscow and even the old KGB hardliners had opened it doors to western investors no questions asked as folks like Jennings and Allen came calling with literally bags of hard cash.
In 2018 450,000 Yahoo accounts were been posted online by Russian hackers. The U.S. then charged Sushchin Igor with one of the largest cyber breaches in history. The media widely reported Sushchin was an intelligence agent with Russia’s Federal Security Service—the successor to the KGB—less widely reported he was also working as security director for Renaissance Capital, the Russian investment bank Renaissance Capital, which paid former President Bill Clinton $500,000 for a one hour long speech in Moscow in June 2010.
Karim Baratov’s of Canada was also charged. His lawyers said their client hacked only eight accounts for the Russians and did not know that he was working for Russian agents connected to the Yahoo breach. Baratov was arrested in Canada and later agreed to forgo an extradition hearing and face the US charges. The Renaissance agents, Dmitry Dokuchaev and Igor Sushchin, used the information they stole from Yahoo to spy on Russian journalists, US and Russian government officials and employees of financial services and other private businesses, according to US prosecutors.
All of that got reported enmass but again there was hardly any western media outlets to be found who noted Russia would end up charging the two Russian intelligence agents identified as Dmitry Dokuchaev and Igor Sushchin for treason.
Dokuchaev was described as an officer in the FSB Center for Information Security, known as “Center 18”, which is supposed to investigate hacking. According to the Washington Post, which first reported news of the charges, he began working for the FSB not as hard zealot of Communist Russia but to avoid prosecution for credit card fraud. Dokuchaev was one of two “FSB agents” arrested in December 2016, according to Russian news agencies, and charged with treason over alleged cooperation with the CIA motivated by greed. A wee fact left out of of the CFR controlled western media syndicate reports.
Jennings is one of the key players in the smart cities being developed in Africa, such as Eko Atlantic and Tatu organisation, in partnership with the Clinton Foundation which Australia and NZ have together donated 50 million to date (along with 150 million for climate change by NZ and 50 million for development in Africa from CF spooked chocked partner CARE Australia who provided cover for Russian Antonov flown under the name Pacific Express hired to deliver aid which TVNZ reported as in fact owned by arms smuggler operating out of Auckland ). Jennings is the biggest investor in Rendevour Africa which is developing seven new smart cities across the continent: two in Nigeria (Alaro City and Jigna), another two in Ghana (Appolonia City and King City), and individual cities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia and Kenya. Overall, they cover 120 million sq m in total.
Jennings is also the chair of the New Zealand Initiative (formerly known as the Business Round Table), the chief lobby group who drive Local Government New Zealand. LGNZ is a curious neo liberal intervention of Rogernomics (whom Jennings credits as one of his muse back when Jennings was privatising NZ Rail for NZ Treasury) which has a minister but no actual ministry and is supported financially by and large by the critical infrastructure industry who can now be found as the beneficiaries of Covid and government funded economic stimulation package which our government has borrowed from offshore merchant banks. It comes as New Zealand pass the three water amalgamation legislation, the State Sector Reform bill, all of which empowers and enrich those the government now seeks to employ to manage it critical infrastructure and evolving smart city technology. The very same parties who can be found pushing water privatisation and smart cities ‘solutions’ to sustainability and climate change in New Zealand as meanwhile US dominated firms snap up the critical infrastructure here and in Australia need to make those proposal affordable to the public. In Africa smart cities have turned into a recipe for corruption and debt manufacturing and have being used as trojan horse by which the private sector can privatise and create a monopoly over public resources that address housing, food and water security.
In 2017 Clinton, shortly after she left the Obama administration, moved the state department to quietly “taking steps to purchase real estate in Nigeria from a firm whose parent company is owned by a major donor to the Clinton Foundation”. On March 20, 2013, William Franklin, an “international realty specialist” at the State Department, emailed Mary E. Davis, an American diplomat stationed in Africa, instructing her to “put on Post letterhead” an “expression of interest” by the department in purchasing property at Eko Atlantic never completed, the department now says – raised eyebrows because Ronald Chagoury is the brother and business partner, in the Chagoury Group, of Gilbert Chagoury, a Lebanese-born businessman whom federal records show has donated between $1 and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation. Gilbert Chagoury’s friendship with the Clintons can be traced back to the Clinton presidency.
In the mid-1990s, Chagoury donated nearly $500,000 to a voter-registration drive designed to help Democratic candidates, attended a White House dinner for premium donors, and met with high-ranking officials in the Clinton White House – including Susan Rice, now President Obama’s national security adviser – who were shaping US policy toward Nigeria. The State Department’s outreach to the Chagoury family, looking to buy property from the brothers, came less than a month after former President Clinton himself toured the Eko Atlantic project – for the second time. Franklin further instructed that the signed letter was to be “delivered to Ronald Chagoury”.
THE CLINTONS & THE CARING RADIOACTIVE MONEY LAUNDERING KIWIS.
As he prepared to collect his $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show. Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show. Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote the State Department on May 14, 2010, using the former president’s initials and forwarding the list of names to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s team.
Millions of New Zealand taxpayer dollars were donated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) to Hillary Clinton’s charity, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), a non-profit organisation created from the Clinton Foundation with the stated goal to reduce HIV/AIDs in Africa.
An MFAT spokesman confirmed to the NBR that between January 2010 and June 2016, $7.7 million of taxpayer funds had already been donated and another $6 million was to follow, keeping to a pledge to donate $13.7 million made by the government organisation in 2013. A total of $145 million ‘pay for play’ contributions was made to the Clinton Foundation by shareholders of Canadian company Uranium One, a mining company with concessions in Kazakhstan and the US.
Uranium One sought to sell these concessions to the Russians, but the deal had to be approved by a government committee due to the implications to national security. But the deal went ahead any way.
1. The US version of Sergi Manistsky scandal is fiction as Das Spigel maintains.
2. This means the billions in money laundered of Russian & Mexican drug money through NZ in 2009 can be now be tied to both the Clintons, the CIA, & Jennings Renaissance bank directly.
3. Most importantly we now have caught CIA assets using Russian Hackers to make out its Russia not the CIA doing hacks and spreading ransomware.
4. The evidence, in conntrats, offered up today that Russia and China alone are responsible for cyber hacking is of a low quality. No better than that offered up for Iraq and proven to be fake. Are we really going to go down that road again?
5. Those making the allegation have a credibility issue having being caught lying to the public for decades as the Pentagon Papers, The Church Committee, The Iran Arms for Hostages Contra scandal, the BCCI Banking intelligence scandal, The Chilcott Inquiry and Wikileaks all testify to among many other scandals involving the Five Eye Intelligence club. And to add to that point many of those caught hacking for the USA (or who have been Russians who turn out to be working as guns for hire) are individuals linked to one if not more of the scandals listed above. This is literally the usual suspects.
6. The ‘witnesses’ to the official narrative being pumped out by western media within the Council of Foreing Relation umbrella are largely American corporations who stand to gain and have a record of helping the usual suspect commit the very crimes they are now accusing Russia and China of. Which includes attacks on not just on rival corporations or state forces but include illegal attacks conducted against the public.
7. The public leaks within Five Eyes and US intelligence to date may at a stretch of imagination serve Russia China’s bigger picture goals. Yet currently the paymaster identified to date has been the non-state actors of corporations and organised crime whom US intelligence and Five Eyes have partnered up with as they conduct illegal operations, on both sides of the ‘iron curtain’ aimed at empowering and enriching themselves. Operations which do not make the world safer but have served as a major force in global and regional instability. It is organised crime that has being caught compromising Five Eyes, at its highest level, as opposed to state actors from Russia and China who have also being on the receiving end of such cartels
8. Western media has not learned a thing from the Iraq war and remain the tool of the Council of Foreign Relations which guides US foreign policy in accordance to the whim of US oil arms and banking sector and whoever they may be in bed with be it spies or just simply those with money to pay and play.
9. Cyber hacking is conducted by both sides. However the chosen western narrative has being to ignore that fact as they (they being the usual suspects) build a steady stream of blame at only Russia and China door. As a hacking event aimed at targeting specifically the public and critical infrastructure for profit is clearly in the wind. The question of course, in the event that a forecasted 9/11 scale cyber event takes place, is will western media bother to look at who stands to gains from such attack or will they repeat the error of 9/11 and war in Iraq and simply accept the claims of those with an extreme history of conducting abuse for personal enrichment.
