Hactivist Jeremy Hammond pleaded guilty this morning in a New York courtroom to violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) as a member of the Internet collective known as Anonymous. He is now slated to be sentenced on September 6 and faces no more than 10 years in prison. Hammond, 28, was arrested last March and charged with hacking into the computers of Strategic Forecasting Inc., or Stratfor — a global intelligence company based out of Austin, Texas.
He has been held in jail for nearly 15 months since being apprehended and faced a potential life sentence if convicted by a jury. After spending more than a year behind bars — with weeks spent in solitary confinement — Hammond pleaded guilty early Tuesday for his role in the Stratfor hack as well as eight other computer network intrusions.
Hammond wrote a statement which was released today and gives a good explaination as to why he opted for this plea deal.
Tonight we will discuss the Hammond case and plea deal with Daily Dot columnist Lorraine Murphy aka raincoaster, Andrew "Panda" Blake, Subverzo and more!
This morning, District Judge Loretta Preska told 27-year-old Jeremy Hammond and a courtroom full of supporters that she will not be stepping down at this time from the federal case against the young political activist, who’s accused by the government of hacking private intelligence firm Stratfor during a highly-publicized security breach in late 2011. Prosecutors say Hammond, an alleged member of LulzSec, hacked into Stratfor and obtained a trove of personal information, including personal correspondence between executives and thousands of credit card credentials belonging to subscribers of a paid service offered by the company. In recent weeks, though, it’s been discovered that Judge Preska’s husband, attorney Thomas J. Kavaler, was victimized in that very hack. Mr. Kavaler’s personal information, including his credit card numbers, were leaked in the hack attributed to Hammond. Despite this knowledge, though, Judge Preska said Thursday that she is reserving judgment in recusing herself from the case. Hector Xavier Monsegur, a hacker who famously operated on the Web as LulzSec ringleader “Sabu,” will be sentenced in federal court for crimes that preceded the Stratfor hack. But although Sabu’s rap sheet is long and his crimes arguably heinous, he is expected to be let off easy: according to court documents, he pleaded guilty back in August 2011 but has had his sentencing delayed because of his ongoing cooperation with federal investigators. In fact, FBI agents provided him with the very computer used by Hammond to upload the hacked Stratfor files just two months later. Tonight Vince will be joined by Andrew Panda Blake to discuss this and anything else on your mind!

A warning to Romneyites--don't listen to this show! You will NOT be happy campers if you do!
I was proven right about Romney's Grand Amnesty Plan! In the second debate, Romney actually shouted over Soetoro-Obama "I'll get it done! I'll pass it next year!" There's no doubt about Romney's plans now. Plus, he denied he supported 1070 but that he only supports the E-verify provision which he didn't bother stating is "mandatory" for all businesses in Arizona.
I mentioned the assault on a black Cleveland, Ohio bus driver by a black woman who punched and spit on him.
I discussed the story on two law professors stating that Soetoro-Obama's Executive Amnesty "is unconstitutional".
I talked about the CA Secession Movement which is quietly alive and well.
Josh Barro wrote an excellent piece today at bloomberg.com on "The Final Word On Mitt Romney's Tax Plan" and I discussed this at length.
This show went over 32 minutes--enjoy!
BTW, this show has broken the record and is now the most-listened-to episode in the nearly 4 years of "broadcasting"--thank you all so much!

Fear that Mormonism would be a problem for voters, Romney spent millions of a "we are just like you" campaign. But the real problem may be a ban on blacks in the hierarchy of the Mormon church which likens blacks to children trying to do things that they are too immature to acccomplish. How does religion play in American politics, especially when it is less than inclusive?

I cant justify $40 a month (for a premium supbscription), i dont have time to schedule guests..
for the free version, you have to wait till 11pm EST which is too late and ruins sleep to discuss such things before bed .. i dont make money at this, alot of other people do a show that do it better , have been doing it longer and make money at it .... i have almost no listenership -- have to spend time promoting it to get less than half-dozen live listeners .. it just doesn't seem to add up to needing to do something more than once a week ... at least not for the negative news we are polmugated and pummeled with daily ..
cant justify daytime hours of productivity doing other things to do a show then, unless of course it is for promotion of something ... (or not a negative news edition)

What's good for Facebook and its employees could be very good for California's treasury. If the Palo Alto company goes public this year, as many have speculated, the state stands to reap hundreds of millions of dollars in capital gains taxes from Facebook investors and employees profiting from stock sales. That could bring a much-needed windfall to a state government facing a $9.2 billion deficit.
