Palin’s Email Traffic With Osama Bin Laden – Updated

The Illegal invasion of Governor Sarah Palin’s privacy by a bunch of low-life cyber criminals is an interesting test of moral character for the liberal media and politicians. Clearly, for the “anything to win” left, the invasion of privacy AND the publication of private information to the world is seen as a crowning victory for the liberal movement (now looking a bit fascists in the double standard of when laws apply and don’t apply, the trigger being political association). But let’s think this through as a sane average American.

Palin’s family emails and details are fair game in this desperate liberal world. But if Palin had sent emails to Osama Bin Laden to discuss joint plans, then the liberal loons would be saying the Bush administration was violating Palin’s 4th amendment rights if they monitored those emails to determine if they were associated with a national threat.

So here we have the brave screwed world of the left. If Palin emailed a known terrorist and the government intercepted them (but kept them from the public for privacy reasons) it is a crime by the government against the citizens. But if Palin emails her family and some cyber-yahoo intercepts them and splashes them across the globe it is a beautiful thing.

Every one got that?  ROTFLMAO!

Update: I guess a little lesson in the Constitution is in order for our education challenged friends on the far left. Anyone pointing to the allegation Palin used her personal email to subvert official email and archiving processes needs to remember we have the rule of law – not the rule of vigilantes. First off, we are all innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Second, only a judge who has been presented with compelling evidence can authorize the investigation of personal information. No judge would allow personal details irrelevant to a charge (like cell phone numbers) to go into the public record.

So, when you hear someone claim the act of invasion is justified by the rumors of wrong doing remember – this is how Nazis dispensed ‘justice’. This is un-American. Whose next libs – Palin supporters? Going to go after the rest of us?

    As a protected status person the Secret Service is obligated to report and coordinate with the FBI on this and I believe different laws come in to play.

    Somebody could be in the deep darks.

    I see Federal PMITA prison in someone’s future.

    Stock up on the KY.

    I’m sure Obama’s campaign is going to come out with a statement condemning this as utterly inexcusable. Right?

    AJ, what this is all designed to do is cast aspersions on Sarah. The talking points I heard tonight on Greta Van Susteran’s show were this:
    Did Sarah use her personal email for business exchanges so they would not be subpeoned? The Politico guy brought this up and was his main talking point….not that Sarah had her personal account hacked into…nah, we wouldn’t want to focus on the law being broken now would we…

    Bring it on. This will again be a huge backlash. The dems think they can create scandals where none exist.
    You and your communist mentors are vulgar and will NOT SUCCEED.

    And I LOVED the interview on Greta’s show with Mrs. Rothchild. She hit the nail on the head! We will NOT have a democrat extremist in OUR HOUSE. Go Lynn! Sock it to the Leftist global socialists a.k.a “o”.

    I have been watching the thread over at hot air. There is a plausible chance that they have nailed the person who did it. It could have been a son or stepson of a Democratic state representative from Memphis, Tennessee. It’s still developing.

  7. It’s All Morally Relative…

    For a liberal, if the target is the Republican candidate for VP, then breaking the law and inviting the scrutiny of the Secret Service and the FBI is worth it….

  8. It appears Obama’s Digital Brownshirts are really *dumb* Digital Brownshirts, just like the originals:

    “Ramuglia got into the proxy business a few years ago, after schools began blocking access to an online game site he used to co-own. Pretty soon, people began using the proxy service to access YouTube, Gmail, MySpace, and dozens of other sites that are routinely blocked by IT departments.

    To prevent abuse of the service – such as the occasional bomb threat or other illegal act that’s been known to happen – Ramuglia logs each user’s IP address, along with the time and web destination. That often isn’t enough to track down people who access extremely popular websites. But in this case, the perpetrators included a whole string of random-looking characters when posting screenshots of Palin’s hacked account. That will probably be enough for him to pinpoint the proverbial needle in the haystack.”

    This mistake makes it a “Gimme” for the US Secret Service to run down and imprison these yo-yos prior to the election.

  9. It appears that the “Digital Brownshirt” was an low tech skill adolescent (in behavior) from Chicago.

    He/she used google to find the answers to Yahoo’s password recovery questions to get into the account.


    “I missed the original incident, but monitored the discussion and repostings afterward to see what I could learn about what had happened and who was responsible.

    There are several misconceptions and errors in most accounts of this story, including your post. Most significantly, the perpetrator(s) were not members of an infamous group of hackers. I don’t blame you for misunderstanding this, because in all the media coverage regarding the war with Scientology the media has completely failed to explain what Anonymous is.

    Anonymous is not exactly a group. It is people using the umbrella of a web discussion board for cover to be as offensive, funny, strange, or whatever as they want.

    Here’s the short version: there is a site called It is an image posting site based on a popular Japanese site. The site contains multiple boards, each of which is dedicated to a particular subject. The most notorious of these boards is called /b/. /b/ is the board dedicated to random images. /b/tards, as its denizens are called, are interested only in their own amusement. Their sense of humor runs the gamut from sick to cruel to merely strange. Lolcats, as made famous by, originated on /b/. A lot of memes start there. There is a lot of racist humor — pictures of excited and happy black people in proximity to fried chicken abound. There is a lot of pornography. Sometimes it’s child pornography, although posting that is moderator grounds for banning — no, it’s not a pedophile ring; /b/tards post it because they think doing so is funny.

    4chan does not log participants. Most people don’t use or have usernames, and post instead as “Anonymous.”

    And every so often, a number of /b/’s anonymous denizens decide to make somebody’s life hell. Sometimes it’s a random person who offends /b/’s sense of propriety. Sometimes it’s a forum dedicated to a serious topic. Sometimes it’s Scientology. And Tuesday, it was Sarah Palin. Or it would have been.

    Sarah Palin’s email account was hacked by one person. Not a group.

    This person read her emails, then posted the username and password on /b/. This happened at about 4 in the morning on Tuesday. The idea was that the sea of Anonymous /b/tards would download the emails, upload porn, and cause all manner of mischief. Anonymous is not a group of hackers. Anonymous is more like gremlins.

    They are hyperactive adolescents in search of amusement and joy, which they often get by upsetting people and making messes. That’s what was happening here. Anonymous did not hack the account. A hacker tried to throw Sarah Palin to Anonymous. Not all of Anonymous was having it. One person threw a crowbar in the works.

    Other /b/tards were displeased to miss a chance at the lulz. The moderators stepped in. The thread was deleted.

    Later, other individuals created threads reposting screencaps of emails and the inbox, and put together a collection of these files. All mentions of these were purged by the moderators. So then some bright /b/tards decided to email what little stuff they had to the media.

    That’s pretty much it.

    This afternoon, in a thread that was later deleted, an individual claiming to be the original poster gave his account of what happened. I’ve attached screencaps. Here’s the text. The original poster used the name “rubico.”

    The linked email address for the poster was

    Hello, /b/ as many of you might already know, last night sarah palin’s yahoo was “hacked” and caps were posted on /b/, i am the lurker who did it, and i would like to tell the story.

    In the past couple days news had come to light about palin using a yahoo mail account, it was in news stories and such, a thread was started full of newfags trying to do something that would not get this off the ground, for the next 2 hours the acct was locked from password recovery presumably from all this bullshit spamming.

    after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)

    the second was somewhat harder, the question was “where did you meet your spouse?” did some research, and apparently she had eloped with mister palin after college, if youll look on some of the screenshits that I took and other fellow anon have so graciously put on photobucket you will see the google search for “palin eloped” or some such in one of the tabs.

    I found out later though more research that they met at high school, so I did variations of that, high, high school, eventually hit on “Wasilla high” I promptly changed the password to popcorn and took a cold shower…

    this is all verifiable if some anal /b/tard wants to think Im a troll, and there isn’t any hard proof to the contrary, but anyone who had followed the thread from the beginning to the 404 will know I probably am not, the picture I posted this topic with is the same one as the original thread.

    I read though the emails… ALL OF THEM… before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor…. And pictures of her family

    I then started a topic on /b/, peeps asked for pics or gtfo and I obliged, then it started to get big

    Earlier it was just some prank to me, I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be, just like all of you anon out there that you think there was some missed opportunity of glory, well there WAS NOTHING, I read everything, every little blackberry confirmation… all the pictures, and there was nothing, and it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fucked, I panicked, i still wanted the stuff out there but I didn’t know how to rapidshit all that stuff, so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state

    Then the white knight fucker came along, and did it in for everyone, I trusted /b/ with that email password, I had gotten done what I could do well, then passed the torch , all to be let down by the douchebaggery, good job /b/, this is why we cant have nice things

    The “white knight fucker” was the /b/tard who thought that going through Sarah Palin’s email wasn’t cool. He logged in, changed the password, and sent an email to a friend of Palin’s warning her and letting her know the new password. Unfortunately, he then posted a screenshot of this email to let the other /b/tards know their fun was over. He failed to blank the password, and they all tried to log in and change the password — which tripped the automated Yahoo! freeze. Since then, the account has been deleted. “Rapidshit” refers to — i.e., rubico wanted to download the emails, put them into one file, and put that file up on rapidshare for /b/tards and the world at large to download. But he panicked, or didn’t know how to download the emails, and so pawned that task off on Anonymous, which he didn’t realize wasn’t monolithic and in his favor.

    As Paul Harvey would say, ‘And now you know…. the rest of the story.'”

    The hacker has been identified and contacted by the Feds.

    He is the 20 year old son of a Tennessee State Representative.

    You guess the party.
