Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

The political stuff is just for fun. Hackers hacked Hillary for $$PROFIT$$

Are Russian Government or Russian criminals interested in our election?

Putin hacking U.S. Elections?  It’s a dangerous lie. 

Clinton is also threatening to make a “No fly” zone in Syria. The aircraft involved are Russian piloted by Russians.

Keep in mind that the fully armed Russian Navy is a mile from Britain’s shore. About the same psychological effect as watching fully armed Russian Navy ships from the Atlantic City Boardwalk. 

Russia is responding to Clinton:

I think the "Russians" hacked Hillary's email not to influence elections. They hacked low hanging fruit that could give them access to a multi-trillion dollar money tree.

Some 17 year old in Russia was snooping online and noticed Hillary's doors were wide open. He figured out she had access to a large number of billionaires and the chase was on.

Clinton's email gave access to the multi-billion dollar Clinton Foundation, but that's chump change. The big money is in Clinton's donors, the corporations and countries like Saudi Arabia where commerce is tightly controlled by government.

The political stuff is just for fun. Hackers hacked Hillary for $$PROFIT$$

To Russians Putin hacking Democrats email is such an obvious lie that it's silly.

Our Prohibition made a common everyday beverage illegal and led to organized crime in the United States.

In the Soviet Union almost any private business selling anything was illegal. For basic survival, not just a beer, citizens of the Soviet Union had to embrace organized crime.

I know a dental technician who said, “In Russia, I was a millionaire.” He had to hide his gold from the KGB under his floorboards, but he could bribe almost any public official.

In Soviet Russia organized crime was deeply embedded in government. Now organized crime is Russia’s government.  

Hacking is a crime in former Soviet countries but it's a misdemeanor. 17-year-old hackers who successfully hack an overseas business are celebrated like soccer stars. Here they most likely end their careers in prison. So it's easy to see how people here believe the nonsense about Putin trying to control our election.

"MOSCOW -- When it comes to finding original ways of virtually stealing real money, Russian criminals are in a class of their own. With an estimated annual turnover of more than $2 billion a year, the Russian cybercrime industry is the source of at least a third of all viruses, Trojans and other malicious software, or malware, sent around the world.

"In terms of sophisticated types of malware, Russia leads the way,” according to Kyle Wilhoit, an American cyber-security expert.

Take, for example, the recent data breach at Target. Investigators have traced the software that was used to steal millions of shoppers’ credit-card details back to a 17-year-old hacker from St. Petersburg named Sergey Taraspov. He allegedly wrote the program and then sold it for $2,000 on a Russian-language website. At least 40 different criminals, most from the former Soviet Union, used the code to attack American retailers. So far, at least 110 million American shoppers had their credit card numbers stolen with his software.

Wilhoit says this type of hit, known as a point-of-sale attack, shows serious skill.
“Russia is where they develop most of these types of attacks,” he said. “It’s a technology that not many other virus writers would understand. They go to the trouble of figuring it out because they know that’s where the money is.”
There are a number of reasons why Russia is the leading producer of malicious software. While universities here still produce highly trained engineers and mathematicians, the legitimate economy is offering them jobs that pay very little by western standards. An average Russian computer engineer earns about $24,000 a year, which doesn’t buy much in Moscow, the world’s most expensive city. The other resource Russia seems to have in unlimited supply is organized crime with strong ties to the government, which tends to look the other way when it comes to cybercrime.
'Hackers only really get prosecuted when they attack targets inside Russia,” said Wilhoit.

My blog, CoatesvilleDems, consistently gets about 200 to 250 page views in 24 hrs. The United States has always had the largest "audience".

For about 4 months it bumped to 400 to 500 in 24hrs,  about 1/2 from Eastern Europe & former Soviet countries. That's now stopped.

Was Russian government involved? I don't think so. Most criminal hacks come via former Soviet countries where stealing online is an embedded part of the local economy. Clinton's wide open State Department/Clinton Foundation email is a trillion dollar gold mine for criminal hackers. 
And when she is president "Russian" hackers will continue to follow the money.
