BREAKING: Anonymous Hits Chamber
Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 08:27 AM by kpete
Source: Daily Kos

As we speak I'm sitting on a mile high pile of, I guess, unauthorized data released about the US Chamber of Commerce. Thousands and thousands of docs released a few hours ago. Wanna help read through the docs and see what horrific secret things the Chamber is up to? There's thousands of these docs.
http://www.filedropper.com/chambersecrets2


******This document release contains content from the American Legislative
Exchange Council, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Mackinac Center.

................

The torrent contains information about:
- The US Chamber of Commerce
- The ultraconservative think tank the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Michigan
- The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)

2. Maybe someday the Chamber (R) will actually support America & Americans
Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 08:56 AM by SpiralHawk
That would be nice change of pace...Though I doubt the exposed documents will reveal anything they have done that was in fact helpful for America, since the Chamber (R) is so clearly anti-honor & anti-integrity, and so into deviant fellating of predatory multinational RepubliCorps (R) with allegiance only to PROFIT.

4. paths
Both files are encrypted using the http://truecrypt.com system. We
don't feel a great need to protect this content since we're distributing
it, but we do feel a need to help you improve your tradecraft.

The larger file, ALEC-Chamber-Mackinac.tc, is the content itself. The
password for this is "Barrett Brown".

The smaller file, Press-Release-2.tc, contains clarifications that may
or may not be needed, depending on how wise those who download this
data prove to be. If the need becomes apparent we will provide the
password to Barrett Brown, with the expectation that he will release it
via http://anonnews.org and other channels.

19. ANONYMOUS/CHAMBER **********UPDATE*********
Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 09:52 AM by kpete
Download the documents here:

Important: You'll also need a torrent client like utorrent or BitTorrent to receive the documents...and you'll need TrueCrypt to decode it
http://www.filedropper.com /...

To open the file you will also need something called TrueCrypt which you can download here.

Instructions:

1. Download TrueCrypt after you've finished loading the massive data dump to your computer.

2. Then open TrueCrypt (click the TrueCrypt icon)

3. Click Select File and locate the huge file from your local computer.

4. Select a directory in the top window...I used the Z directory

5. Click Dismount

6. Ignore the warning the system gives you about armageddon and system failure -- if it actually gives you a warning.

7. Enter the password Barrett Brown

8. Then...you'll get a choice of which file you want to open...and from there on out it's pretty much millions and millions of pdf files.

Happy reading! Bring a barf bag.

33. The nice thing about TrueCrypt is that it decrypts the file "in situ".
There's no need to expand the decrypted data to a different directory and thus chew up hard drive space; TrueCrypt mounts it as a virtual volume and decrypts it in RAM.

Nice.

After all, they are the ones that are supposed to protect consumers from corrupt and dishonest companies, yet they're one of the most corrupt organizations out there.

Start with them to find out which individual companies are the worst offenders, then go after them one by one.

over anything or anybody else: Their own hubris and ego make them think they are invincible...untouchable.

Groups like Anonymous and Wikileaks have begun to show them that even they, in their secured ivory towers and gated communities, are vulnerable.

The truth will be exposed, and they should be worried.

24. Since they went after the Mackinac Center and ALEC, this seems to be at least in part
their response to the Wisconsin GOP going after Professor Cronon's emails after he wrote about ALEC, and Michigan's Mackinac Center going after professors in that state.

and will continue to do so if left unchecked.

Problem is that they are so deeply embedded into every little crack and crevice. If we have no one in office that is our advocate, what are we to do?

29. The Chamber is salting the peer network with malware-containing fake files...
Peerblock is going nuts with hosts identified as "malware infested" trying to connect to people downloading this torrent.

Nice try, shitheads. Ain't gonna work, but nice try, nonetheless.

34. What a BEAUTIFUL THING!
And as an aside, this might well spell relief for the Postal Service. If these organizations are forced to give up hackable electronic communications, there may well be a run on first class stamps! This might well spur a resurgence in the office furniture industry too! Think of a comeback for file cabinets!!!

207. That's exactly my point. Hit them where it hurts, in the pocket book. If you hang a few of their
friends, instead of scaring them you will only delight them as they see less competition. Nationalize the banks. Now that will get their attention.

I believe those talking about hanging a few capitalists are speaking metaphorically anywayz.

54. Has anyone here heard of Hebert Cain - "Tea Party favorite".
Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 12:32 PM by peacetalksforall
http://www.theroot.com/views/who-herman-cain

"Who Is Herman Cain?
The outspoken corporate executive and Tea Party favorite explains why he could be the second black president."

He spoke at a Summit of ALEC which is mentioned above - it appears to be a NON-PARTISAN think tank. This guy shows up in top position in the photo listing of speakers at the ALEC Summit. He was first listed ahead of Eric Cantor and Newt Gingrich and another Republican. So much for non-partisan.

If this guy is going to be the second black president' the R's better get all their corporate media to get going.

This organization appears to be one of two top think tanks tightly joined to the CofC.

http://www.alec.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=meetings_sp...
American Legislative Exchange Council

Anyone have any stories about ALEC? Are we about to learn some?

Which has the title " 101 Recommendations to Revitalize Michigan"

Here are some excerpts:

# 1 "End mandatory collective bargaining for government employees who already enjoy civil service protections." and
# 20 "Repeal laws that mandate binding arbitration in labor disputes between local government and police or firefighter unions." and # 32 "Repeal the ban on directonal drilling for oil and natural gas under the Great Lakes." and
# 41 "Repeal the "minimum wage" law, which makes it illegal to pay a person less than $7.40 per hour, regardless of voluntary agreements between an employer and employee."

and so on and so on...

96. TrueCrypt;
A GREAT application. It's based on Open Source material. One of its many features is that it will create partitions that cannot be detected by any known means. What this means is that you can install anything on your computer inside a TrueCrypt partition and lock it out with a password that will take longer than the universe has been around to crack. They talk of 124 bit and 1012 bit decryption. Hell, you can put a million bit decryption on your files with this puppy. Also, this gives anyone plausible deniability. When the feds come knocking and want what's on your computer, you can say there is nothing wrong on it and the feds cannot tell otherwise.

Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 04:59 PM by nc4bo
this is gonna take a while to get through..

The Myths of the Great Depression is rather telling: "Government Programs helped lower unemployment by putting American's to work" is a myth is one of the title quotes.

BTW this is Mackinac. tons of privatization stuff - they want to privatize EVERYTHING.

Here's a winner: Tea Party Toolbox. Seems the Chamber enjoys working with them and is cultivating their support. It's like a huge circle jerk.

Just still browsing and opening what seems interesting to the eye. The Asian Brochure NEW talks all about increasing trade and economic business opportunities between Asia and the U.S. but I fall to see any discussion about U.S. or Asian workers. Fair wages, real fair trade instead of the onesided Walmart mess we see so much of....

Here's another gem: from 14483laborimmigrationactv: Chamber would like to remove: Pay Equity Laws based on sex discrimination; Repeal Civil Rights Act of 2008, fighting the Lilly Ledbetter law, Family and Medical Leave Act; new OSHA amendments; Alernative Dispute Arbitration Methods (nursing homes and car accidents, etc.; former government bidders who were blacklisted for various worker violations should not be blacklisted and allowed to bid; Patriot Employer Act (businesses found to be "patriot employers" get preferential tax treatment; wants to allow international labor organizations to influence U.S. law.......also wants to increase cap on HB 1B and EB so they can import more labor (I guess to replace us?).

Ect.

Wish I could post all this stuff - there's just so much of it. Lots of letters and the propaganda is just overwhelming.

There's alot of immigration stuff here but I'm inclined to agree with some of it in that we do need to address immigration reform but I bet they are not for the same reasons. That immigration problem is a sore spot with the 'baggers.

Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 08:16 PM by LandR
I downloaded the file in a total of 72 minutes and am still seeding right now, so I don't think the file has become unavailable. Plus, even if this torrent became broken, thousands have the file now and anyone could easily create another torrent, so there is no stopping this information. Though, after looking through these files for a little while, I have mostly found documents that are already online. In other words, most of these documents aren't insider documents with scandalous information, but these documents are mostly a nice collection of bullshit from each of these organizations.

if it asks for you to sign up, something is wrong.

apply the TRUECRYPT password (Barrett Brown) to the LARGE 1 gig file only to decrypt. it produces hundreds of PDF text files.


id upload it zipped up and decrypted but i don't know how.

so nyah nyah. i have it and you don't.(j/k) ;-)

this is is a PB torrent link. don't know anything about it except that it's one big zip file. no clue about encryption. it might be faster though.

I've a bad habit of scanning over .txt docs but I remembered the HBGary reference in today's dump. I wonder if there are some names or some other additional information that can tie the Chamber with HB?

You've a good knack for the search!! The charter school/education issue is corruption central and we know it, maybe something there?

158. Maybe this means something;
As a random file I opened the file marked;

'2008_School_Choice_Academy_Attendance_Form'

I looked up school choice academy and the contact person, a Matt Warner and an organization called American Legislative Exchange Council 'ALEC.'

http://www.alec.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Cap_and_Tra...

These goons are into 'Limited Government, Free Markets and Federalism. According to their site they had a hand in repealing the Cap and Trade Bill. Real sleazes.

Anyway, according to ALEC's website this same Matt Warner is;

>>>>

Matt Warner

Director, Education Task Force


Matt Warner is the Director of the Education Task Force for the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a membership association for state lawmakers who share a common belief in free markets, limited government, and individual liberty.



Working with reform groups and other coalition members, Matt drives model legislation, conducts research, and consults with lawmakers on how to create a more competitive market for K-12 education services.



Prior to his current position, he was Director of Public Affairs at the James Madison Institute (Florida), and later joined the Atlas Economic Research Foundation as Donor Relations Associate. He has participated in radio programming around the country and his work has appeared in School Reform News and The Washington Times, among other publications.

>>>>

A quick look shows that ALEC is a front company that was instrumental in getting the Cap and Trade Bill defeated.

OK now, Matt Warner is a big wig at a neo-Conservative political action group. He is the go to person for a group of Charter schools in Salt Lake City. While the connection is obvious I do not understand the why.

Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 09:28 PM by wordpix
these anti-government goons love government when it hands over public funds to THEM. Get the funds for public charter schools and we're talking millions, probably. Cut the charter school costs to the bone and give to the "American Blue Skies" anti-cap and trade fund, instead.

Maybe. :shrug:

163. Anyone still have access to the link for Anonymous' HBGary email dump?
My main pc is down and with a bad heat sink, no way I can access it.

From today's Chamber of Commerce dump(emphasis is mine):


This document release contains content from the American Legislative
Exchange Council, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Mackinac Center.

The Chamber of Commerce came to our attention via the HBGary email
dump. Their connections to ALEC and the Mackinac Center are not entirely
clear, but the information we provide should help clarify things.



Maybe both of these releases need to be looked at together.

it might have been illegal, an email dump would have been more fruitful.

This looks more like mostly public and semi-public documents. Where it is EXTREMELY useful is in exposing their political strategy and talking points.

191. UPDATE 3 at that DKos diary: "Anonymous Urges Caution on Chamber Release"
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/04/30/971631/-BREAKI...

Anonymous posted this to their site anonnews.org

On April 29th a person using the twitter account @septscelles released a large file to Barrett Brown that purportedly contained secret US Chamber of Commerce documents. This file was later made available via File Dropper as a (strangely truecypted) torrent named "chambersecrets2". It is also reported to have been made available in an unencrypted form on the Pirate Bay.

Despite the promise of secrets and leaks, early research has thus far shown that this information is publicly available through a simple Google search. It's very possible that @septscelles is just an attention seeking troll. Despite this, there is a more insidious possibility. We learned from the HB Gary emails that the Chamber of Commerce was advised to feed the fuel between the feuding groups, disinformation." Specific mention was made of " messages around actions to sabotage or discredit the opposing organization submit fake documents and then call out the error

The file is very large, and will therefore take some time to fully examine. Nevertheless, we would like to state that this information was provided by an unknown party and may be an attempt to discredit Anonymous through a campaign of misinformation. More information will be coming soon.

198. Someone made mention before that there's really nothing malignant in the release
it does seem to be mostly propaganda brochures, itineraries (or whatever you call them) for meetings and trips, etc. real light weight stuff. I really saw nothing scandalous (could be wrong as I didn't go through all of it). Posted screen captures of some of it.

I found it mostly convenient that it's all in one place and it makes it pretty clear what the Chamber's intentions are and where they stand on certain issues (no surprises).

Sorry guys.
