Chicks on the right are now confirming that capital authorities have arrested a former intern for publically releasing personal information belonging to three prominent Republican senators during a heated confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
27-year-old Jackson Cosko was caught after a former co-worker found him using a computer in the Senate offices of Maggie Hassan, where he recently worked as a “legislative correspondent/systems administrator,” but no longer had clearance to use. Cosko was confronted by the co-worker and then he left Hassan’s office.
The staffer then e-mailed the person who had caught him and threatened to release even more information, including information about lawmakers’ children, if they ratted him out. “If you tell anyone I will leak it all. Emails, signal conversations, gmails. Senators’ children’s health information and socials.”
Luckily, the threat did not deter the person from calling the police and they arrested Cosko. Shortly thereafter authorities confirmed that the staffer, Cosko, was not supposed to have access to Hassan’s office and that he used another person’s log-in information to use the computer.
If convicted, Cosko faces five federal charges of making public restricted personal information. Along with making threats in interstate commerce, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, and obstruction of justice/witness tampering.
He was also charged with second-degree burglary and unlawful entry in Washington, D.C. He could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted on the charges. Lock him up!
Here is more on doxxing via The Conversation:
“Imagine this: there’s a knock at your door. “Pizza delivery!” It’s the fifth time in the last hour that you’ve had to say to a delivery-person: “No, I really didn’t order anything.” That’s irritating.
“Half an hour later, there’s another noise at the door. This time it’s forced open as your house is stormed by the heavily armed and aggressive special response unit of your local police force. They’re responding to a tip-off that warned them of a hostage situation at your address. That’s not just irritating. That’s dangerous.
“Why is all this happening? Turns out, you’ve come to the attention of a cluster of mischief makers and misanthropes in one of the internet’s dank corners.
“You’ve been “doxxed”. Your private information has been posted, perhaps by an anonymous imageboard user, who’s implored others to “do with it as you will”.
“This might sound far-fetched, but these sorts of internet-enabled attacks have become more frequent in recent years. In fact, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been cautioning citizens about “swatting” (see below) since 2008.
“It has become common to see articles about how these attacks have affected politicians (both Republican and Democrat in the US), celebrities, journalists, businesses, video game streamers, and public servants.
“What is doxxing?
“Doxxing – named for “documents” or “docs” – is the act of release of someone’s personal and/or identifiable information without their consent. This can include things like their full legal name, social security numbers, home or work addresses and contact information.
“There’s no set format for a “dox”; the doxxer simply publishes whatever information they’ve managed to turn up in their searches. Sometimes this even includes the names and details of their target’s family or close friends.
“As a tactic of harassment, doxxing serves two purposes: it intimidates the people targeted by invading and disrupting their expectations of privacy; and it provides an avenue for the perpetuation of that person’s harassment by distributing information as a resource for future harassers to use.
“Technology and security expert Bruce Schneier argues that 2015 will see even more doxxings, as “everyone from political activists to hackers to government leaders has now learned how effective this attack is”.
“What is swatting?
“Swatting – named for the US police Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) teams – is the act of making a false report to the police with the intention of having a heavily armed response team sent to the target’s home.
“This is made even more problematic by the militarisation that local US police forces have undergone in the last decade through initiatives like the Department of Defense’s 1033 program, which allows the pentagon to provide military grade weapons and equipment to local police forces on a free, permanent loan.
“Technology journalist Sarah Jeong describes this as “assault by proxy”, as the police can cause serious injury to the targets of these swatting attacks.
“How do these attacks happen?
“Unfortunately, the technical barrier to doxxing or swatting a person is low. A doxxer can acquire information on their target through a variety of legitimate public sources. Or, more nefariously, through social engineering techniques.
“Swatting often just requires the name, phone number and address of the intended target. Swatters often use cheap or freely available anonymizing technology to disguise their identity, or to “spoof” the phone number of their target, when making their false report — a move that makes their crime difficult to police.
“These attempts also prey on the good faith basis with which emergency responders treat their callers, and as a result valuable police time and resources are diverted away when they may be needed elsewhere.
“How can you protect yourself?
“If you find yourself at the receiving and of these forms of intimidation and abuse, you’ve likely done nothing wrong. People are doxxed and swatted for all sorts of imagined wrongs, as banal as having an opinion on the internet or playing video games.
“Unfortunately, the prevalence of doxxing and swatting is, in part, born of a perfect storm in personal data insecurity and easily-abused systems for reporting crime. There are no perfect solutions for avoiding being doxxed or swatted except making yourself a more difficult target by adopting strong information security practices.
“While the simplest solution for online security is not having online data, this is impractical in the digital age because major parts of our social and professional lives are intermediated through web services. That said, there are a few precautions you can take to increase the security of your data online.
“One of the first steps in securing your personal details is discovering to what extent they’re already out there and publicly available. If you find old accounts or websites you no longer want, sites like justdelete.me can provide information about having your account deleted from certain websites.
“Don’t re-use passwords for multiple services
“This can be difficult, as a new password for every service you use will be taxing to even the best of memories. The best, most complex passwords will be challenging to guess or to brute-force, but also difficult to remember.
“Here’s where technology can make life easier; a password manager app, like LastPass, KeePass or 1Password can help you set unique, complex passwords for each service you use, and let you secure them behind a single, more memorable password.
“Though password managers come with their own risks, I’d argue that the benefits of using complex passwords can outweigh these.
“Turn on two-factor authentication
“Two-factor authentication requires that people trying to access your account have access to a password as well as a “trusted device” – typically your mobile phone – in order to receive an authentication code before gaining access to your account. The Two Factor Auth website lists popular web services and their support (or lack of support) for two-factor authentication.
“You can find more information in advice from people who’ve experienced these attacks, and at websites like Crash Override Network, a support network for the targets of online abuse that provides some excellent guides on online security, and how to cope with doxxing and swatting attacks.”
Who wants to bet there is more to this story? Does anyone actually believe the narrative that a simple IT staffer did this all on his own? Why would he? Whatever happened here we can rest assured that once the FBI gets done with him he will be singing like a canary and naming names.

FOX: Mexican Kidnappers Behead Businesswoman After Ransom Not Paid
The Democrats and the media call the border wall ‘immoral’. They say it is a fake emergency. The reason we need the wall on our southern border is a national security issue. It’s a matter of stopping vicious cartels, terrorists, and gangs from moving drugs, weapons, and people back and forth to sell to the highest bidder. It’s to stop criminals who have no regard for our laws and kill Americans whenever they can… or worse.
A Mexican businesswoman, unfortunately, provides an excellent example of exactly why we need that wall. She was kidnapped by a cartel. When her husband didn’t pay the ransom, they cut off her head and dumped her corpse in a garbage bag with a note. The body of Susana Carrera was found last Wednesday inside a bag in a parking lot in the coastal city of Coatzacoalcos in the state of Veracruz. She had been kidnapped a week earlier outside a friend’s house where she had gone to pick up one of her children.
The kidnapping took just minutes and Susana never even had a chance to scream. Shocking video shows how her kidnappers pulled her into a car. They grabbed her and quickly threw her into a car in a matter of seconds. This isn’t a one-off… this happens all the time in Mexico. One wonders when it starts happening more and more here in the US whether the left will even care. Perhaps after a few wealthy leftists have their heads cut off it will sink in.
The kidnappers left a note alongside the woman’s body, according to local media, which read: “This happened to me because my husband played the tough guy and didn’t want to pay my ransom.” You know that’s never the full story. The family was unable to raise the needed funds fast enough for the ransom according to the Heraldo de Mexico newspaper. The kidnappers reportedly asked for a ransom of 4 million Mexican pesos ($207,000). Most Americans couldn’t raise that kind of cash either.

Hours after her body was found, Carrera’s husband, Luis Manriquez, confirmed her death in a message on social media. “Thank you very much to everyone for your prayers and wishes for my wife Susana Carrera to return home. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to and she passed away.” That family is torn asunder and will never recover from this atrocity.
The husband and wife owned an aluminum company called Pezaliminio. It had an office in Coatzacoalcos. It’s unclear why the kidnappers targeted Carrera. The local media put out photos of Carrera’s body and a note. Prosecutors in Veracruz announced Monday that it had launched an investigation into how the photo was leaked to the media, which was probably taken at the medical examiner’s office. Since corruption is so prevalent in Mexico, that’s a no-brainer.
Fiscalía inicia carpeta de investigación y expediente administrativo por filtración de fotografía de los restos de…
“The Office of the Attorney General of the state will not tolerate situations like this one, which constitutes a re-victimization and a breach of the duty of secrecy within the investigation,” prosecutors said in a statement. Yes, they will… just as authorities do in sanctuary states such as California.
No arrests have been made so far and there’s an excellent chance no one will ever be arrested for this crime. The number of kidnappings has reportedly risen in the city of Coatzacoalcos, with 49 reported in 2018. More than 160 homicides were reported last year. These are the kind of criminals that the left is welcoming with open arms here in the US. #WeBuildTheWall

Illegal Sentenced To 60 Years For Sexually Assaulting, Impregnating 11-Year-Old TX Girl
An illegal alien was sentenced to 60 years in prison without the possibility of parole following his conviction for continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14. The Illegal alien impregnated an 11-year-old girl.
The victim faced her abuser in a North Texas court during the trial, officials stated. The case began when hospital officials treated the 11-year-old as she was 19-weeks pregnant.
Star Local Media reported:
“This innocent child showed remarkable courage by naming the monster who assaulted her; he will never harm another child again,” Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis told the local news outlet.
Illegal Alien Roli Lopez-Sanchez
In February 2018, medical professionals told police about an 11-year-old patient who was 19-weeks pregnant. The child disclosed that Lopez-Sanchez sexually assaulted her, and at the time of the offense, Lopez-Sanchez had ongoing access to the child.
Eli Molina of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County forensically interviewed the child, who described details of the sexual abuse. Child Protective Services investigated, and the victim and her siblings were removed from the home.
Last summer, at 12 years old, the victim gave birth. Plano Police Detective Kristin Nichols investigated the case and obtained DNA samples of the baby. After analysis, DNA confirmed Lopez-Sanchez was the father of the victim’s baby.
Breitbart News obtained jail records revealing that immigration officers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations placed an immigration detainer on the migrant for being in the U.S. illegally.
The young girl told doctors that 37-year-old Illegal Alien Roli Lopez-Sanchez raped her.
The Officials said he had continuous access to the child at the time. During the investigation, Eli Molina with the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County interviewed the little girl and said she provided details of the sexual abuse. Children’s Protective Services caseworkers removed the victim and her siblings from the home.

To think that the Democrat party doesn’t want to protect the American people from these disgusting animals is quite disturbing. They wouldn’t care if this happened to your child.
