MASSIVE - Hunter Biden “star witness” admitted to DOJ that he was getting information from the Kremlin and serving as a conduit for Russian disinfo.
Looks like the whole Hunter Biden “scandal” was a Russian psy-op — straight from Putin.
This year has been godawful on service operators on the net, the level of malicious garbage being slung is off the charts
In addition to The Big DDoS, SourceHut has seen about one layer 7 DDoS per week, and in any given week this year between 40 and 70% of all new accounts are spam. Our IP and email blocklists grew by several thousand entries this year.
I've spent basically all of my time in 2024 dealing with bullshit and none of my time doing anything useful for the platform or its users.
You know how young children will see some toy or shiny object on a store shelf, and somehow — by design! Marketers know what they’re doing! — they instantly •have• to have it, and are obsessed, and all sense and proportion go out they window and they need it now now NOW, but if they get it they soon abandon it because it’s junk that only looked good on the shelf?
It’s like that with CEOs and AI right now.
I keep seeing think pieces about how the US elections will be protected from foreign interference.
Babes, Trump and his family cannot afford to lose the election. Literally. They have to win.
They will throw every single thing at winning, legal or not. The call isn’t just coming from inside the house, the call is going to burn the house down on purpose.

General (Ret.) Wesley K. Clark, Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander on Donald Trump’s remarks
“On 9/11, when America was under attack, NATO nations all mobilized to come to our defense and fought alongside us to crush al Qaeda. They didn’t ask us for money. They didn’t put strings on it. That is the kind of iron-clad commitment that has kept Western democracies — including our own — alive for 75 years.
“For Donald #Trump to publicly signal to Vladimir #Putin that he can take as much of Europe as he wants, and we will sit by and cheer him on, isn’t just breaking the promise the United States has made, and it isn’t just threatening Europe. It is encouraging World War III, which will hit our shores and cost American lives.
“It is the kind of statement that can only come from a deranged and twisted mind. I do not say this lightly: The lives of every American, both in uniform and civilian, are at severe risk if Donald Trump wins this election.”
The leader of the GOP encouraging Russia to attack our NATO allies seems like the comment from a presidential candidate that everyone should be talking about this weekend.

1933: Hitler takes power.
I wish I could implant this into everyone’s brain.
It makes me sad at how accurate this is.
