CHINA HACKING SONY

Just when we thought we were done with dots-that-might-be-connected to recent goings on in Asia, there's this:

FBI warns U.S. businesses of new Chinese cybercrime scheme

Now, you're probably thinking what I'm thinking: Sony (a Japanese company, ultimately), in its American branch, is hit with a massive hacking operation, by groups or individuals in China, with whom Japan is holding a regional summit later this month in the wake of the earthquake and nuclear disasters, to which Hillary Clinton has been recently invited. Now, something here smells, and I don't think it's China.

For one thing, such a blow at Japan would seem definitely to run counter to the publicly stated goals of the summit, and would be a political risk - should the Japanese government ever be able to pin it definitely on Beijing - to undertake. So initially I think we're looking at some more hidden player.

For another thing, the blow appears to be more of information-gathering, nature and directed toward the American branch of Sony, rather than the Japanese per se. What bothers me, then, is that again, my intuition tells me - and it's only intuition, nothing more - that we're looking at a story that is connected to all the other goings on in Asia, and possibly with the bearer bonds story.

But if it isn't the Chinese government, then who? One possibility is that China is simply being used, or perhaps even set up, as a shill here by someone else. If so, then ultimately, a clue will be provided by what the Chinese government does in response to this story. Rest assured, they will respond quickly, perhaps quietly, but they will respond. If their response is to shut it down, then in all likelihood the people in China responsible for the hacking were acting or working either for themselves out of pure greed, or for someone else. If, on the other hand, the operation is shut down and reemerges elsewhere in China, then I think, yes, that the case could be made that this was a covert operation on the part of that government.

But for now, my gut says, yes, something smells here, but it isn't China.

    The age of cybercrimes….There is a dire need to improve on cybersecurity and cyber regulations.

  2. Look whatever the impetus for the for the creation of the DoE in the 1970s, today, in 201, the DoE runs all of the nuclear weapons programs–that’s doing something, even if you don’t agree with doing that something.

    Don’t imagine that the DoE has much to do with Detroit making so many inefficient cars. That’s more a Reagan policy change and a huge drop in the price of oil in the mid 1980s.

  3. Rather like the Kennedy-Khrushchev Summit was scuttled by the strange U-2 situation with Francis Gary Powers, you mean? That’s my gut speculation.

  4. What is logic, or who’s logic ?
    This is an example from a forum.

    Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at
    night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

    Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?” So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions and one person to do time studies.

    Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?” So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people, one to do the studies and one to write the reports.

    Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?” So they created two positions, a time keeper and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

    Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?”
    So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, an Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

    Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year, and we are $918,000 over budget. We must cut back.” So they laid off the night watchman.
    NOW slowly, let that sink in.

    Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter.
    Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY….. during the Carter Administration?
    Anybody?
    Anything?
    No?
    Didn’t think so!
    Bottom line: We’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency…the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember!
    Ready?? It was very simple . . . and, at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

    The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977 TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.
    Hey, pretty efficient, huh???
    AND, NOW, IT’S 2011 — 34 YEARS LATER — AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS “NECESSARY” DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR. IT HAS 16,000
    FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES, AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE! THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR
    FOREHEAD AND SAY, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?”

    A little over 34 years ago, 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.
    Ah, yes — the good old Federal bureaucracy!!

    NOW, WE HAVE TURNED THE BANKING SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND THE AUTO INDUSTRY OVER TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT?
    Hello! Anybody Home?

  5. On other thought that occured to me, what if the USAF was doing a systems structural analysis of the Playstation network, to hopefully be used at a latter date?

  6. Dr Farrell,
    Is it right to think that Fucushima earthquake, the nuclear plant devastation, the China hacking activity on Sony, and the EU ban on herbs from China (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itaMSyFWo9I) are somehow connected to each other? I really would like to know what you think is happened right now…

    1. Well, my gut reaction is always to think things ARE related until proven otherwise… my only question would be the ban. As for what is happening my take remains what it has been since 9/11…the NWO elite crowd are actually under some severe pressure, there is factional infighting and their desperation seems to me to indicate this.

      1. Or saying with another words, the last events, both the Libyan venture, where USA “stepped down” the rule to NATO and let France in trouble, and the immigration wave of the asylum seekers, tiding over Italy and Spain are bringing immense pressure over EU that makes any kind of economic measures against Asia hysterical. It also gives a convenient shifting of the social interest from Fucishima to Europe, isn’t it?

      2. Hi Dr. Farrell,

        I couldn’t agree with you more- but when will most people wake up and realize that EVERYTHING is related (and being manipulated on a scale grander than most can/want to even suspect)?-

        and yes, I agree, amongst NWOrderists there simply has to be factional infighting- anyone that intrinsically greedy (money/power) will not want to share booty with anyone else-

        many warmest regards,

        Larry
