This week I finished reading a book titled “Ransomeware Hunting Team.” As I read I began to realize why passwords are so important, and necessary. Each time I write about passwords it is negative. I hate passwords with a passion. My favorite saying is that the only one that a password protects me from is me. Fortunately, I have only encountered a ransomeware attack once in my lifetime, and I was smart enough to ignore it, and also wise enough to restart my computer in Safe mode, I got lucky. The thought of my computer being invaded by a complete stranger who then sends a nasty-gram asking for money to get rid of him makes the hair on my arms stand at attention. The only thing scarier is encountering that same man on the street who sticks a gun in your face and demands your wallet.

In the book “Ransomeware Hunting Team” the authors tell a story of the heroic effort expended by a few people in the world who take the opposite stance as the thieves. The main characters are hackers who specialize in, and get delight from being able to unlock the thief’s key, and to save the victim from paying the ransom. At first, these brave hackers were the only ones fighting the hundreds (or maybe thousands) of evil-hackers who everyday hold unsuspecting victims hostage. It took decades of cooperation between the good-hackers and the FBI to finally develop enough clout to fight back effectively. In the mean time, evil-hackers had bilked billions of dollars from individuals and corporations.

I still believe that better computer designs, and more secure software can be developed to squash the ransomeware developers. But will anyone be able to force computer and software companies to do that?This is such a big problem that it will take a concerted effort by our government to enact regulations and controls that will make it impossible for evil-hackers to function.

To my surprise, yesterday I read headlines that airlines had been shut down nationally due to an unknown computer outage. My mind immediately jumped to suspect ransomeware, and Russian hackers looking to get rich by imposing such a grand scheme as shutting down the major transportation system in the country. It is a documented fact that the USA has imposed sanctions on Russia, and the sanctions are working. It is also known that the USA is assisting Ukraine in the war with Russia. This is not just a coincidence. The shutdown of the USA air transport system is most likely Vladimir Putin getting revenge on the United States for waging war against Russia by using Ukraine as a proxy.

Of course the airlines have denied that the problem is not due to ransomeware. It would be too embarrassing for them to admit such a thing, and it would be even more embarrassing to admit that the FAA has sent Russia tons of money to get the system back up and running. It would be even more damaging to learn that the FAA system was so out of date that it was susceptible to crash just like Southwest Airlines. We spend trillions of dollars every year to run our country, but I’d be willing to bet that there isn’t one nickel in the budget for upgrading crucial computer systems.

My prediction is the Department of Transportation, run by a weakling rookie, will spend more money trying to find the root cause than they would spend on a system upgrade.

Just Who Is the Traitor?

I just got this today. I am laughing my ass off. The liberals will brand this as fake news.



Let me see if I got this straight….
If we get nuked by missiles from North Korea,
it’ll be by missiles built with technology given to China by Bill Clinton,
funded by Iran with money Obama gave them,

with warheads developed from uranium sold to Russia by Hillary
and refined by Iran into weapons-grade plutonium in Russian centrifuges

bought with money Obama gave them.

And Trump’s trying to undo this shit storm…but he’s the Traitor!

Affirmative Action President

I’m watching Tucker Carlson debate with some yokel about the deal Hillary made with the Russians to sell them 20% of U.S. uranium reserves, and a vision of my cartoon from March 7, 2010 came to mind. At the time I drew this funny I was being facetious, sarcastic, and sardonic in my attack of Obama; the only way I knew how to fight him. His spending was out of control for the entire eight years he spent golfing for a living. Little did I know then that our government would actually follow a scenario similar to that in the cartoon.

Granted that in my scenario Obama tells Hillary to sell nuclear bombs, but selling pure refined bomb-grade uranium is pretty much the same thing. A country trying to develop nuclear weapons would be light years ahead if they didn’t have to first reduce tons of ore to get a few ounces of uranium. It would be similar to the soda jerk who creates a special sundae without having to milk the cow to make the ice cream first.

Why or how Obama and his cabinet escaped prosecution, or impeachment is a mystery. The only theory I have to offer is that Obama was an Affirmative Action president, thus he was protected from any negative comment. Another theory is that the Republicans in Congress have cojones the size of the period at the end of this sentence, and were really Republicans in name only (RINO), and they were too afraid to make waves for fear of being castrated by the press for appearing to be racist.

Remember When?

Remember when Donald Trump formed a business partnership with the Russian government and his company got $53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano …..that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as “Putin’s Child?”
           Oh wait, that wasn’t Trump; it was John Podesta.
Remember when Donald Trump received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow that was paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies?
             Oh wait, that was Bill Clinton.
Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State giving control of it to Rosatom, the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation?
            Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn’t a part of approving a deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his e-mails were leaked showing he did lie about it?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.
Remember when Donald Trump got $145 million from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton
Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian oligarchs like the chairman of a company that is part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster;  the wife of the mayor of Moscow and a close pal of Putin’s?
          Oh wait, that was the Clinton Foundation.
Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the ‘ “The Cold War is over?”
           Oh wait, that was President Obama.
Man, Trump’s ties to Russia are REALLY “disgusting!”
