    This judge never heard the expression "bringing a knife to a gun fight" if he is willing to compare an assault rifle to a pocket knife.

    Objection!
    Their definition of law abiding citizens that deserve the right to bear arms is compromised of a mostly white high middle class and above bigoted people.

    It’s only a coincidence that most of mass shooters, right wing terrorists groups and insurrectionists fall into the description above.

    If any of you feel like eating at Burger King this month, try their new chicken sandwich, because they're donating every 40 cents from it to LGBTQ causes:

    And they trolled Chick-fil-A in the process.

    So, I came across a rather interesting Twitter thread that was posted yesterday. I'll post a link to a more formal story and a link to the thread. The short version is this, an encrypted messaging app that has been frequently used in the criminal underworld has, the entire time, been run by the FBI, and every single message sent on it was blind CC'd to them.

    Hundreds arrested in global crime sting after underworld app is hacked
    European and Australian police join forces with FBI to seize weapons, drugs and $148m in cash

    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...-ironside-an0m


    The Story
    Spoiler:

    The FBI set up its own encrypted platform used by hundreds of criminals around the world, in an “unprecedented” sting operation that led to more than 800 arrests in 18 countries, law enforcement officers have said.

    The operation by the FBI and Australian and European police, ensnared suspects in Australia, Asia, Europe, South America and the Middle East involved in the narcotics trade.

    More than 800 suspected members of organised crime gangs were arrested and $148m (£104m) in cash seized in raids around the world, along with tonnes of drugs, cryptocurrencies, weapons and luxury cars.

    At a press conference in San Diego, the FBI said it was behind An0m, a supposedly secure encrypted messaging app, which was secretly developed and sold to organised crime networks.

    Federal investigators deliberately shut down two rivals: the Canada-based Phantom Secure, closed in 2018 and accused of providing customised end-to-end encrypted devices to criminals, and a second Canadian firm, Sky Global, rolled up in March and also accused of involvement in crime.

    Unwitting users then flocked to An0m, believing it to be secure.

    In reality, the FBI received a blind copy of every message sent. By the time the operation was wound up on Monday more than 27m messages had been intercepted, sent across 12,000 devices in 45 different languages.

    Seventeen foreign nationals were charged on Tuesday with racketeering after a sealed grand jury indictment was opened in the southern district of California. Eight have been detained. The others are fugitives. All helped to sell and distribute encrypted An0m phones, it is alleged.

    Across the globe nine law enforcement officers in touch with criminal gangs have also been arrested, the FBI said. As a result of An0m’s “staggering intelligence” numerous drug shipments were intercepted, including a delivery of cocaine from Ecuador to Spain hidden inside containers of refrigerated tuna, it added.

    The Australian prime minister said the operation “struck a heavy blow against organised crime – not just in this country, but one that will echo … around the world”. “This is a watershed moment in Australian law enforcement history,” Scott Morrison added.

    The effort was “one of the largest and most sophisticated law enforcement operations to date in the fight against encrypted criminal activities,” said Jean-Philippe Lecouffe, the deputy director for operations of Europol, the agency that coordinates police activity among the 27 European Union countries, in a news conference in The Hague.

    Operation Greenlight/Trojan Shield, conceived by Australian police and the FBI in 2018, was one of the biggest infiltrations and takeovers of a specialised encrypted network.

    Using An0m, the FBI helped to infiltrate the phones into 300 criminal groups in more than 100 countries, Calvin Shivers of the FBI’s criminal investigative division told reporters in The Hague. He hailed the “innovative” way technology had been used to “bring criminals to justice”.

    In a pattern repeated elsewhere, one Australian underworld figure began distributing phones containing the app to his associates, believing their communications were secure because the phones had been customised to remove all capabilities, including voice and camera functions, apart from An0m.


    As a result, there was no attempt to conceal or code the details of the messages, which police were reading and in many cases translating.

    “It was there to be seen, including ‘we’ll have a speedboat meet you at this point’, ‘this is who will do this’ and so on,” said the Australian federal police commissioner, Reece Kershaw. “We have been in the back pockets of organised crime … All they talk about is drugs, violence, hits on each other, innocent people who are going to be murdered.”

    Shivers said the FBI had been able to see photographs of “hundreds of tonnes of cocaine that were concealed in shipments of fruit”. Australian police said they had arrested 224 people, including members of outlawed motorcycle gangs.

    On Monday alone, they seized 104 firearms, including a military-grade sniper rifle, as well as almost A$45m (£25m) in cash, including A$7m from a safe buried under a garden shed in a suburb of Sydney.

    In Europe, there were 49 arrests in the Netherlands, 75 in Sweden and over 60 in Germany, where authorities seized hundreds of kilograms of drugs, more than 20 weapons and over 30 luxury cars and cash.

    The operation also revealed that gangs were being tipped off about police actions, which prompted “numerous high-level public corruption cases in several countries”, according to an affidavit from an FBI agent.

    Kershaw said the Australian underworld figure, who had absconded, had “essentially set up his own colleagues” by distributing the phones, and was now a marked man.

    “The sooner he hands himself in, the better for him and his family,” he said.


    Here's a link to the original twitter thread I found it on:

    https://twitter.com/ericgarland/stat...00449013125123

    The thread:
    Spoiler:

    DOJ just unsealed the search warrant on the "encrypted" laughing telecom used by thousands of Mobsters worldwide RUN BY THE FBI THE WHOLE TIME and it is a goddamned children's treasury of awesome.

    Come, let us frolic!

    First, as a sweetener, since most of my readers are still bloodthirsty for perp walks of the dingleberries pictured below, remember that Dipshit McSonInLaw used these exact "technologies" to communicate with the Saudis and stuff.

    So, what follows is how fucked they are.

    The FBI, as some of continually remind the reader, has a great many tools available to Special Agents tracking Mob scumbags. This is just the experience of one SA.

    Also, remember that Trump Tower was *at least* home to money laundering and illegal gambling.

    This is just some of the hard evidence the FBI can use to nail RICO junkies: from phone bills to photos to flipped scumbag co-conspirators.

    AND THAT'S BEFORE WE GET TO THE PHONES THEY SELL CRIMINALS WHO USE THE FBI'S OWN PHONES LIKE MORONS IT'S TOO GOOD!!!

    GATHER 'ROUND, CHILDREN!
    Once upon a time there were Mobsters with SOOPER SEEKRIT communications whoops they got indicted because not actually seekrit woops prison

    So they Bad Man who ran the Last Sooper Seekrit Tech Company for Drug Dealers turned state's evidence in 2018 and gave up all the Mobsters he knew.

    And forfeited $80M in assets.

    And this left a space in the "suicidally dumb Mobster tech" market.

    See, drug dealers need real-time, encrypted, sooper seekrit communications.

    And the FBI wants real-time, *actually encrypted,* *actually secret communications.*

    There's a romance that awaits.

    JUST A NOTE TO SILICON VALLEY: some tech guys and investors doing bad things with you may actually be either CHSs or Special Agents undercover feeding you the next generation of The Product That Will Put You In Prison Forever.

    HERE'S THE AMAZING PART ARE YOU SITTING DOWN

    - FBI has the master key for encryption
    - EVERY message from Mobsters is blind cc'd to the FBI
    - All of it is observable in real time
    - All of it gets re-encrypted for real and saved by the FBI safe and sound

    BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAAA

    And the FBI knows the unique identifier of every last motherf**kin' Mob scumbag

    The indictments write themselves

    BWAAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAA

    The FBI worked with the Australian Federal Police (Australia's FBI, essentially) and they gave out their new special PrisonTeleportationPhones to special people - ONLY Mobsters. With the hopes that bigger bosses would use them.

    Neato!

    Interesting that while Bill Barr was at DOJ, FBI set this whole thing up but wasn't intercepting the comms...intriguing...

    Huh...FBI was drafting off the court order of a third country that intercepted all the Mob comms until that order expired...

    ...TODAY.

    no big deal just 20 MILLION messages intercepted from MAJOR CRIMINALS AND ONLY MAJOR SCUMBAG MOB CRIMINALS in 90 countries

    that's all

    AN0M IS ALREADY LEADING TO THE PROSECUTION OF POLITICIANS

    do you see where this is going?

    These phones are second only Bitcoin in their awesome ability to create court-ready evidence to put entire scumbag herds in the slammer.

    It's impressive.

    And lo, did the Mobsters yammer on these phone.

    Boy, did they. In *detail.*

    The Mobsters yammered about which corrupt officials helped them.

    Wow. Thanks guys!


    Seize 1500 kilos of cocaine? Pretty easy when you hear THE ENTIRE CONVERSATION OF EVERYONE ABOUT THE EVERYTHING!

    Refrigerated fish. 1400 kilos. Bye!

    Pineapples. 1600 kilos.

    Damn, it DOESN'T feel good to be a gangster.

    I don't know how the
    @FBI didn't pee themselves every time they read "Send secure message"

    SECURE! SEND! SECURE! BWAAAHAHAAA! MESSAGE!!!

    The rest of the search warrant application just explains why they want this guy's Gmail account to corroborate some stuff from the FBI's own service, Alexa, Order Me All The Prison Time™.

    But it's the implications that matter...

    This aforementioned dipshits USED FUCKING TWITTER DMs TO CONSPIRE WITH RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE.

    This seems portentous. Because there is more to come.

    The major implication is the PROSECUTION WATERFALL.

    Each of these investigations leads to bank accounts and bribes and PACs and campaign donations and businesses and mayors and governors and TV producers...

    And it's unstoppable now.

    his most recent alleged victim was the wife of a police commander whom he knew personally.
    the policeman went to the home, confronted the suspect, and found his wife's hacked-up body inside.
    .....I have no idea how the cop kept his control in that situation.
    Yeah, yeah, professionals... but I dunno man, when the situation is THAT personal then things can get unpredictable.

    You trusted this person, and you find your wife chopped up inside his home... how do you not just launch at him?

    Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media.


    The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais.


    The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death.


    Earlier on Wednesday, the Spanish High Court had agreed to extradite McAfee, who has been charged with a number of federal financial crimes in two districts in the United States.
