Eyeballing Jackie Stokes and the Fed Campaign Against Hacker Freedom

Everyone saw what happened with the MAGA cap at Hackers On Planet Earth. A single attendee wore a MAGA hat and was the victim of assault and property theft, and the conference organizers banned the person that was responsible for the crimes. In the wake of that incident, there was an extreme amount of outrage on social media and mailing lists, largely from people who do not produce a single line of code associated with political causes and/or the federal government.

In the wake of this, a burn notice has gone out against the HOPE conference. Two people in particular have gone to all out war against them.

Jackie “Jax” Stokes and Jericho have been composing a “rapist list” of people they are alleging are responsible for sexual misconduct.

They are demanding the community expel the entirety of the people on the list. Of course, 2 of the people on this list are well established as guilty of sexual misconduct: Appelbaum and Draper are all known to be guilty of horrendously poor behavior, some of it criminal and all of it certainly grounds for expulsion. People knew about them for a long time before the community finally expelled them. There was a lot of reports. Three of the remainder, however, all happen to be major figures behind HOPE, and one is a close friend of theirs. I’ve heard no whispers about someone like TProphet, who has had nothing but nice things said of him. Funny enough, TProphet was explicitly told that he would be put on the list if he refused to support it. Seems more like extortion than justice, don’t you think?

Now I have some information that might perhaps shed some light on the situation. I’ve known Jax for decades, and she was a regular in #gnaa. That’s the Gay Nigger Associaton of America, for those uninitiated. She has, in my conversations with her, uttered the following words: faggot, gook, chink, jiggaboo, porchmonkey, nigger, and kike. She has made several rape jokes and laughed at those made by others.

In 2015 (one year after I got a massive swastika tattoo on my chest) she did the following things:

Publicly said I was her friend:

“Cracked up” at a comment where I was telling my adversaries I intended to start a pogrom (a violent purge of an ethnic group) against them:

Now, her comments in support of racist violence and rape were not youthful stuff. These were well into adulthood, and she was chill with this kind of behavior in 2015, not the distant past, so forgive me for thinking that this is difficult to reconcile with her current persona of putting pronouns and “ally” in her profile and being the hacker scene’s new number one champion of racial and sexual justice.

She also slept with dozens of vulnerable young men in several IRC channels I frequented– a few of them minors, and a couple of them in the GNAA. Images she sent teenagers ended up in the Dickscab archives. This won’t surprise people who are familiar with Jax’s behavior at Defcon. It is well known her sexual promiscuity there is the cause of her current divorce. She is to my knowledge guilty of some of the categories of sexual misconduct that she demands the punishment of others for without trial or charge.

In former days, GNAA debuted a lot of new technology. Novel attacks originated for the first time in the wild from GNAA laboratories on a pretty regular basis. In addition to specific attacks, actual real science and mathematics were pioneered in it and some of that got cited by places like Stanford. We were, in all honesty, a pretty decent hacker crew. If our output was legally defensible, we would use it. If it wasn’t, we would sell it. Jax brokered some of our stuff to governments in Africa and the Middle East. Eventually she switched clients and began a career track for the federal government, and mostly stopped hanging out with people like us that were probably risks to her clearance. But her exploit sales to the MENA region make a nice introduction to the rest of her behavior in the past week.

She’s accused Pilgrim of being an agent of a foreign government. She’s done it before, and she’s doing it again now. Pilgrim is a close friend of one of the people on her and Jericho’s “rapist list”.

The critical question in this discussion is: what if this accusation were true? What if, in fact, Pilgrim is an asset of a Lebanese faction? His family is indeed extraordinarily wealthy and powerful, and he has been eager to assist lots of hackers. He has invested in a lot of projects of various people, gave charitable donations at fundraisers for the medical and living expenses of hackers in need, and supported the charitable foundations of hackers. If he was a Lebanese intelligence asset, would he be any less of a friend to any of you?

If anyone in the hacking community honestly thinks that they have more to fear from the Lebanese government than the American one, I want them to say this absurd shit out loud. Please, Tweet this right now so we know who the fuck you are. Because I can tell you this– no Lebanese security services ever kidnapped my friends and tortured them until they killed themselves. There is not a year that goes by that I don’t shed some tears for Lance Moore and think that his mother is without a son because he faced the exact same charges with the exact same legal counterarguments in the exact same district as me. There is not a single day that goes by that I am not aware that there is a pile of corpses that didn’t have the will to make it through the beatings at the hands of United States federal agents, the starvation, and the solitary confinement to tell the government to eat shit in court. I’m sure few of you remember Lance, but I’m sure every single one of you knows what happened to aaronsw.

No Lebanese state authority has systematically subjected me or any of my friends to this kind of torture and terrorism.

“He’s spying on you!” cries the federal asset as she admits she reports your interactions and business with her to the feds. Links: Twitter, Archive

If you honestly think that Pilgrim’s government cares about spying on you more than your own, please say so out loud. If you honestly think that you have more to worry about from any Lebanese forces than the agencies that read Jackie’s clearance reports, please, say this out loud so we can laugh in your fucking face.

Now for the mercenary aspect of this. Yes, Pilgrim has worked to bring a lot of capital and political resources to hackers worldwide. Who among you think that the sole bidders on your work product should be Jax’s bosses? Who thinks it is good for your advancement and future to be limited to a single client, your own government? If it is true, and Pilgrim was contracted by foreign security services and using their capital to advance their state interests, who that actually produces code instead of prostitutes themselves for information would actually see him as anything other than a useful ally and resource?

Who that actually writes code for a living thinks that the federal government should have total veto power over who you interact with, who you do business with, what political rallies you and your friends may attend, and what Presidents you can support by wearing a hat? Because that is the subtext of all of this.

I don’t believe that Jax yucking it up about me threatening ethnic cleansing or saying nigger with all my edgy shitlord friends is indicative of her being a racist, nor do I believe that her putting pronouns and “ally” in her profile is indicative of her being a legitimate champion of social justice. Jax, in the decades I have known her, has never gone out of her way to help any of her fellow human beings. She has, universally, been about advancing the cause of Jax. Right now she is working overtime to show how useful she is to the state to ensure her place on its teat as whoring around the blockchain community ceases to be effective rent seeking.

Jax was my friend. I don’t really have a dog in this fight, but I will not let stand this level of self-serving behavior at the expense of the community for the sole benefit of the people that put me in prison and tortured me. Every single bit of Jax’s current behavior is steeped in a level of hypocrisy that is simply unfathomable. I have never seen this kind of mercenary corruption from anyone that I’ve ever called a friend in the hacker community.

2600’s HOPE conference did not cave to the demands of a bunch of deep state cogs that don’t want engineers to vocally support a President that is bad for them and their budgets, so Jax’s constituents want it destroyed.

Jackie’s backers think Pilgrim may be associated with parties in Lebanon who theoretically might have thwarted some of their operations, (totally unproven, and he remains uncharged with any crime in his own country or ours, by the way, though I’m sure if it was true that Jax’s employer would do everything they can to try to get your friend charged with a crime) ergo you can’t be friends with him, you can’t take a check from him, and you can’t cooperate with him on projects.

That’s what all this is about: your right to free speech, free association, and lawful commerce.

They want total control over your thoughts, your social circles, and your work product, forever.

I think the hacker community, as a whole, should tell Jax and Jericho exactly what they think of this.

An open letter to Matt Parrott

In the years since it was revealed you had meetings with law enforcement you’ve shown increasingly erratic behavior that I think that you need to address for the safety of people around you.

Instead of simply saying that your meetings with law enforcement were a mistake, first you claimed they didn’t happen and that I was lying. Now you claim that it was only the state police. You continue to justify your actions in talking to cops. FYI, it is unacceptable to talk to cops– even if it is only the state police– about movement activities in any form. Here’s a good explanation of why:

Please watch this video. I have linked it several times in relation to you. Please refute the attorney’s points and tell the world why it was okay for you to talk to law enforcement. Years have gone by and it is a little late after so much shilling for you to simply say, “well, it was a bad idea and I won’t do it again– anyone that talks to cops now is a traitor and not welcome around me.” That would be the correct and rational thing to do, and people would accept it– or at least I would. Instead you descend into personal attacks. Why do you do that when confronted with the issue of meetings with law enforcement? Why do you take this as a personal attack on your operations? Why is it integral for you to talk to cops?

Now comes this recent issue of membership lists. Instead of explaining why your lists are good (in response to a post that you weren’t even named in) you go into some insane fugue. The only justification that you air is this:

Some folks wish to lead, wish to make a stand, wish to be more fully vetted by our leadership,

But it’s absolutely obvious you can’t vet with a real name or address. That provides nothing for you. Informants and infiltrators get into organized crime rings which have budgets of $100MM and can threaten people with execution. You think you’re somehow going to do better than them? The only way you can vet people is by growing a metric of trust by their actions over time– which is something that can be done with equal efficacy whether you know them by “Uncle Adolf” or “Joshua Connor Moon”. Why do you need real names to vet people?

Once again, if you have some sort of unique system for telling someone’s intentions just by a short string of text, let the world know, that’s probably something you could make millions off of. If not, you should probably focus on deleting data which you don’t need and shouldn’t retain.

No lists is timeless advice. James Mason said it in SIEGE. Some of SIEGE has not stood up to the test of time, but this advice is even more relevant now in the age of the Internet where you don’t need to make physical mailing lists for people to read your ideas.

It’s weird that the site that is pro-American and just about meme posting is taking security more seriously than the close affiliation of groups who say America is irredeemable and secession or overthrowing the US government is the only real solution. It seems to me it should be the inverse if you were actually making an honest attempting at doing what you claim you are doing. Either you’re not making an honest attempt or you’re not thinking clearly about it.

Finally, your fraudulence reaches its peak in your claims about me. While some of them are publicly debunked already, I will dissect this one:

Furthermore, I am an IT professional who specializes in security, DDOS, and hacking issues. Unlike some self-promoting recent arrivals whose claim to fame is that they got busted with a social engineering “hack,”

Firstly, you are not remotely tangental to the information security industry, which I have interacted with my entire adult life until dedicating myself fulltime to this movement. You have never published a single exploit. I can point to some of mine (CVE-2010-1099) that are not the bug that got me arrested. Furthermore, there was absolutely no social engineering in the bug disclosure that the feds used as pretext to falsely arrest me. It was found entirely by technical analysis– finding the iPad encryption keys on the device, decrypting the caches on the OS and running strings to find the URL in question. You can listen to the prosecutor describe it in court transcripts, if you want third party details on what happened. The only public spectacle I’ve created that can said to not involve any kind of technical action was my Twitter ads thing, which to be honest was still pretty fucking brilliant.

The hack that got me busted is hardly my only claim to fame. Years before being indicted by the feds (and years before you had done anything related to racial activism), I was being quoted about the Jewish control over finance in articles related to trolling in the New York Times magazine. Before Heimbach was doing his white student union, my racist podcast with tens of thousands of viewers was getting attacked in magazines like Fortune. You are the self-promoting recent arrival, not me. I typically downplay my involvement. You don’t even know how many sites depend on me.

I was responsible for dozens of high profile hacks– I selectively disclosed a bug in LJ (biggest social media site in the world at that time, in 2006) to my hacker crew that lead to widespread posting of fake suicide notes on livejournals. I was part of doing all sorts of clever and funny things to Freenode. I removed every faggot book on Amazon from their search rankings, to a torrential rain of sodomite tears. I have a long and storied history that extends before and after my false arrest, up to and including printing millions of leaflets on other people’s printers.

If you had the kind of mind that would be able to think of any of this stuff you would have already been doing it bro. You’re a PHP monkey, not a hacker. Your attempt to pretend your information security accolades exceed mine is a form of laughable fraud, Parrott. You have no references in that sphere, while my public ones are far too numerous to list in two paragraphs. My private ones filled a multi-page CV once, back when I was actually employed in that industry which you are not a part of.

This is the underlying issue with you. When confronted with sane, rational criticisms of your actions, from interacting with law enforcement authorities to marching around with drug addled street thugs and obvious informants in stahlhelms, you respond with abject histrionics, deflections, and lies. Now you are curiously allying yourselves with the establishment media, feds, and the SPLC against the most censored publication in history.

It’s very curious that you have managed to have absolutely zero trouble with law enforcement. I started talking about Jews in public in 2006 (far before your partner was shilling for Israel) and after I got good at it they tried to frame me for terrorism so the FBI could have pretext to drop my name to Jewish groups, and when that showed no sign of stopping me they falsely indicted me, arrested me, bulldozed my home, and tortured me. You seem to have had no trouble advocating for neo-Nazi anti-racist Russian Orthodox Christian feminist communist anti-Americanism alongside the Oxycontin romper stomper crews. This, given your other behaviors, is pretty suspect.

FYI, your covenant partner NSM (who also keep lists) have been named specifically in the FBI false flag terror attack against a train in rural Nebraska. You know, the one that was done in total silence with no injuries and only a brief train stop, and that people only found out about because Jewish advocacy groups have PACER alerts for terms like Nazi and white supremacist? Can you imagine if the feds arrested a real white supremacist terrorist? There would be nationwide wall to wall coverage of their victorious press conference. Why would the feds have him put business cards from groups like the NSM in his wallet, do you think? If you can’t see what is happening you’re an absolute drooling retard.

Parrott, I understand you are feeling enormous pressure and having some sort of emotional issues as a result. Nothing else could possibly explain this latest meltdown over a post you or TWP weren’t even cited in. Nobody would blame you if you found something else to do for a while. I understand that you and your partner are much newer arrivals to realtalk than I and have not found a lot of success in it. We’d be happy to help you think of ways you could act that don’t involve risky behaviors with questionable individuals. If you come to your senses, you’ll be welcomed back into our movement.  Until then, have fun in your ghetto full of degenerates that think it’s okay to talk to police. I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun in your special outfits.
