Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

The Energy Department and National Nuclear Security Administration, which maintains the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile, have evidence that hackers accessed their networks as part of an extensive espionage operation that has affected at least half a dozen federal agencies, officials directly familiar with the matter said.

On Thursday, DOE and NNSA officials began coordinating notifications about the breach to their congressional oversight bodies after being briefed by Rocky Campione, the chief information officer at DOE.

Minding my own business, wrapping gifts, and I receive a text:

MAGov Alert: Nearly half of MA is high risk for COVID-19. Celebrate safely with only your household so we can celebrate together in 2021. Mass.gov/holidays

Oh go fuck yourselves! This type of crap is why I now swear like a sailor.
Can someone in Congress start beating another politician with a cane, so that we can just skip all the bs and get straight to the civil war that we all know is going to happen at some point? I’m so tired of it all. 🤯

Hi, Dr. CCGirl!

I want to call those idiots in Congress and quote my dad:

"Get off your buttermilk butts and get busy!"

Here is a nice article that speaks for me and I bet you, too. Trump IS loved, people KNOW what he has done, that he WAS rightfully elected, and nothing will change that.

BuffyUK,

What type of law was she training them in....ELECTION law?

Narc, the DOE also issued this today:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette issued a prohibition order designed to reduce the risks that entities associated with the People’s Republic of China pose to the Nation’s bulk-power system (BPS). The order invokes the authority delegated to the Secretary by Executive Order 13920, Securing the United States Bulk-Power System (EO 13920), and takes effect January 16, 2021. The order prohibits utilities that supply critical defense facilities (CDF) from procuring from the People’s Republic of China, specific BPS electric equipment that poses an undue risk to the BPS, the security or resilience of critical infrastructure, the economy, national security, or safety and security of Americans.

“The bulk-power system is the backbone of our Nation’s energy infrastructure and is fundamental to our national security, the American economy, and our way of life,” said Secretary Brouillette. “It is imperative we secure the BPS against attacks and exploitation by foreign adversaries. This order is one of several steps this Administration is taking to greatly diminish the ability of our foreign adversaries to target our critical electric infrastructure.”

President Trump issued EO 13920 on May 1, 2020, and granted implementation authority to the Secretary of Energy. The prohibition order is exemplary of the Department’s commitment to pursuing a phased approach to the EO 13920’s implementation and provides a compliance grace period of several weeks to minimize potential procurement and supply chain disruptions.

The “Prohibition Order Securing Critical Defense Facilities” prohibits utilities that supply CDFs at a service voltage of 69kV or above from acquiring, importing, transferring, or installing BPS electric equipment, and is specific to select equipment manufactured or supplied by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of the People’s Republic of China. The order applies from the point of electrical interconnection with the CDF up to and including the next “upstream” transmission substation. Utilities subject to this order will be notified no later than 5 days from the issuance of the order.

Miss Marple: she would have taught whatever the CCP told her to teach.

Dr. CCGirl: Dennis is the place. "The civil war we all know is going to happen" I too think a civil war is coming.

Melinda: Raheem Kassan (sp?) has an interesting trans Atlantic accent, not posh but good enunciation. He tells a funny story about Carrie, the Prime Minister's girlfriend, says she used to bang on his window in the morning on her way to work.

Thanks MissM. Nice article, but I am not so sure that Trump has the “Kracken.” Maybe he does. Maybe he’s got a plan, but so far I don’t see it.
Anyway I appreciate the effort!

Stephanie, A bit unnerving reading all these posts about the nuclear systems hack and the new DOE rule re the national power systems.

I think I better take a break. I was trying to take a break by wrapping gifts, but then the State had to bud in, and that sent me back here. It’s a vicious cycle!

It appears every federal judge in the country is of the opinion no American citizen has standing to file a lawsuit to prevent election fraud.

QUESTION: Attorney Lin Wood stated that he has "documents" to support his alleged claims Justice Roberts (see below). My question why doesn't he release it to the public for all to see?

"The documentation of my claims about Justices Roberts & Breyer has been placed in hands of several third parties.

When one cannot attack message, all too often messenger is attacked.

But TRUTH cannot be denied. It cannot be destroyed. I have made sure of that TRUTH.

FDA panel endorses second Covid vaccine in U.S. as Moderna wins key vote in path to emergency use

henry

During the meeting Thursday, medical experts also asked the agency about allergic reactions after two cases occurred in Alaskan health care workers who took Pfizer’s vaccine. Doran Fink, deputy director of FDA’s division of vaccines and related products applications, said the agency would continue to investigate the cases.

Anyone know how many Alaskan healthcare workers got vaccinated? Are two allergic reactions a lot?

Georgia officials on Thursday caved to requests for a statewide signature matching effort after President Trump’s campaign has repeatedly asked for the study since the Nov. 3 elections.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced a statewide effort to review signatures for absentee ballots in all of the state’s 159 counties. The move is an attempt to rebuild trust in the state’s election process.

Henry,

Irony on steroids:)

Near universal back door. We all live in virtual glass houses.

SolarWinds, which has said in an S.E.C. filing it believes 18,000 customers downloaded Orion-related code containing the malware, also counts plenty of large companies among its clients.

I think I linked this a day or two ago, but it's got some positive points so I am doing so again:

Yes, your network now has VD.

But the challenge goes further than that. The attackers will almost certainly have used the malware to establish a persistent presence inside companies’ networks.

henry

Did I say VD?

“When you buy software, you’re buying a matryoshka doll of various vendors’ products nested inside and connected to the product [that] you think you’re buying,” says Joel Fulton, who was the CISO of data company Splunk before leaving to build a startup called Lucidium. “Your relationship is between you and your supplier’s unseen tertiary pyramid.” Combing through all of those pyramids is practically impossible, so CIOs will likely have to rely on random checks.


Someone needs to tell us if the supply chain vendors (Atlassian, Gitlab, GitHub, Chef etc) got hacked. This note points that way. Pro safety tip: all these software supply chain vendors have notification terms in the license agreements. These roll through to consumers exposed under things like Cal DataPrivacy. If the software cyber insurance vendors fail because systemic risk and dominoes, anyone downstream in the supply chain is toast. From software vendors to consumers.

I’m happy to blame Xiden for this disaster.

here was a rep speaking in the House this morning or yesterday who was talking about how the screaming of the justices could be heard through the walls.

“nuclear systems hack”

A touch of detail if interested...

DOE is responsible for civil nuclear power, naval reactors (that power carriers and subs), and nuclear warheads. If I had to guess, naval reactors would be seen as most sensitive, followed by certain aspects of warhead design.

NNSA is responsible for the non-nuclear portion of nuclear weapons (including PALs which enforce permissions to fire nuclear weapons), and for transportation of warheads. PAL design isn’t as sensitive as you might suspect, to improve security/stability we share PAL designs with some other nuclear powers.

MM2. "Get off your buttermilk butts and get busy!"

This is not an apt quote to use when referring to the Congress. After all, the House will work a full 150 days next year.

I remember your and JMH's faces when I said that Trump was the "least worst" of the available options for 2016.

Some of you appreciated him earlier than the rest of us, rse. But we all voted for him!
