China controls all U.S. Internet?

We have heard about the U.S. government’s back doors into internet servers and hubs. Anything the U.S. can do, China can do as well. They just need physical access to the device during the production stage. In every home where there is Internet, there is a modem. For instance, Comcast has Xfinity modems. Where are they made? In China.

If I were anxious to control free speech (like China, Russia, Cuba, and the Maduro puppet regime in Venezuela are), then my main concern would be to make sure that the truth does not go viral on the Internet. It’s not necessary to prevent it completely from getting out, since it can be diluted with propaganda lies. All one has to do is to make it slow in spreading, and a way to do that is to limit the ability of those who are spreading it to access the internet. In fact, that is exactly how the regime is acting in the ongoing conflict in Venezuela. This blog has been the target of such an attack for months (now the technicians have hopefully solved the issue, for now; it was an attack that made it very hard to access the server where this blog is hosted). But now I’m getting a different type of attack.

Several times a day my Xfinity modem stops transmitting certain information, in a very targeted way so as to affect only the channels I use to share information about Venezuela, nothing else. It goes away when I reset it, so the code that’s doing it obviously resides in software, it’s not hard programmed, it’s not in flash memory but in RAM. How do I know it is not in my computer? For two reasons: It cannot be resolved by restarting the computer, and it affects identical computers in the same way, even though I’ve never used them for communicating.

There are two possibilities, the first being that there is a backdoor into the Xfinity modem. A modem like that is a computer. When it starts it works, but then at some point of time, abruptly the communication stops working on certain channels, meaning it gets re-infected. The second possibility is that the hack is being done on the Comcast server that the Xfinity modem is communicating with, somewhere away from my physical location. It would have the same symptom, because when restarting the modem the communication channel is re-established, a new session is started in the server, and until the attacker identifies and corrupts the new session, everything will work.

But why go through all this trouble? I’m helping sharing the truth about Venezuela, I’m assisting Operación Libertad Venezuela, and although this was supposed to be secret (exactly to avoid these kinds of things), some not-so-bright freedom fighters have published it (such as Robert Alonso and Cristal Montañez), revealing that they don’t understand what they are up against. They obviously don’t understand the nature of their enemy. I’m going out of my way to help their country in its fight for freedom, and they repay me by putting my life in danger.

If you want to understand what the limits of the enemy are, watch this documentary (sorry, no English subtitles for non-English speech): The Soviet Story (2008). Maduro in Venezuela, Castro on Cuba, and Putin in Russia are all reincarnations of the same ideology, communism. They will react similarly because they follow the same “logic”. They will kill enemies, but not someone who by coincidence found out a forbidden truth; that person will just be prevented from communicating it. They believe in class warfare, but they will not kill the unwanted elements of society if there is a better way to get rid of them (having them flee to Miami is a better way, from there they will actually be sending money back to Cuba / Venezuela, and provide a staging ground for infiltrating USA). They may ruthlessly kill Smith, but leave Jones alone, because they are following orders and to kill the wrong person is a crime even for them. The easiest way to understand them is to think of them as the Mafia. They are the Mafia, the world’s greatest and most powerful Mafia.

If you wonder what role the Chines play in this, I have a question back for you: What’s the Chinese word for “mafia”? In Italy there are different mafia families. They can cooperate on projects without being united. Every family looks after it’s own interests. Crime is a capitalist endeavor; if the Chinese have a way of hacking internet, there is no reason they wouldn’t sell their services to another mafia family. For money, or for some other favor in return.

The bottom line is that the cyberwar is already in full swing, and the first victim – as always in wars – is the Truth. Except this time it quite literally is the truth that is targeted.

Glory to the Brave People

Gloria al bravo Pueblo. That’s how Venezuela’s national anthem starts, and now they have really shown that they are worthy of those words. They have risen up against a regime that for over a decade has used intimidation and implicit threat of violence against protests in order to make people passive and submissive. The Venezuelan

Oligarker är också judar

Venezuelas heroiska uppror söker regimens vänner nedvärdera genom att kalla dem som protesterar “fascistiska oligarker”. Detta argument är likvärdigt med att kalla dem “judesvin” som man gjorde på 1930-talet. Det är dags att vi börjar betrakta likvärdiga beteenden på samma sätt. Så, varför är egentligen rasism förbjuden? Om man får vara lite cynisk så finns

Varför protesterar venezolanerna?

Härom dagen skrev Helsinki Times att det är ett “mysterium” varför venezolanerna protesterar. Det är det naturligtvis inte, det enda mysteriet är hur en så idiotisk formulering kunde smyga sig in i tidningen, för den avslöjar bara journalistens oförmåga att göra sitt jobb och navigera förbi regimens penetrerande propaganda. Men nu finns det en hjälp

Sverige, Ryssland och kriget

Vad har Libyen, Syrien, Ukraina och Venezuela gemensamt? Innan jag kommer till det vill jag fästa din uppmärksamhet på att Sverige redan är inblandat. Den venezolanska diktaturens försvarare bedriver cyberkrig mot alla som försöker hjälpa till att sprida sanningen. För att propagandalögner skall fungera måste man också undertrycka sanningen. Det gör regimen genom att systematiskt

Facebook censures Venezuelan call for help

Facebook has censured an image posted in protest against the crimes against humanity committed by the dictatorial regime of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela. His thugs undressed a protester and forced him to walk naked. In protest many in Venezuela have also got naked, and today there was a naked march in Caracas to call attention

Hur Venezuela liknar Sverige

Det pågående upproret i Venezuela kan för en svensk publik bäst förklaras genom att gå tillbaka i vår historia, till Kalmarunionen, Engelbrekt och Gustav Vasa. Det är oklart hur det egentligen gick till när Sverige gick in i Kalmarunionen, och om det gick rätt till när Sverige hamnade under dansk överhöghet. På samma sätt är

The Battle for Democracy in Venezuela

On April 14, 2013, the Cuban regime stole the presidential election in Venezuela and gave the victory to their Colombian man, Nicolás Maduro. People took to streets all over the country but were gunned down. The candidate who really won the election, Henrique Capriles, caved in and called the protests off. At this point the

Queen of Shame: Elizabeth II

Last Friday, the Organization for American States (OAS) voted to hold their meeting behind closed doors, and then they took the ongoing crisis in Venezuela off the table. They needed two thirds majority to do this, which they barely got, so the votes of each country mattered. Among the 22 votes counted in favor of

One day Putin will cry “coup d’état in Venezuela!”

How will the crisis in Venezuela end? Some foreign leaders call for “dialog”. Forget it. That will never happen. The de-facto president, Nicolás Maduro, has no power. He is just a puppet for Castro, while the strong-man inside the country supposedly is Diosdado Cabello, although it’s increasingly clear that the only thing he is capable
