Reuters reporter ADMITS to colluding with Beto to HIDE story about his illegal hacker past from Ted Cruz race!

Reuters is now admitting in a story tonight that their top reporter on cyber security colluded with Beto O’Rourke in 2017 to keep a story on his illegal hacking deeds out of the press during his race against Ted Cruz.

And Ted Cruz is livid!

Here’s the story:

Reuters reporter Joseph Menn exclusively revealed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke belonged to one of the best-known groups of computer hackers as a teenager.

Within minutes, his special report was the most popular story on Reuters.com here and was picked up by other news outlets. But the origin of the story goes back more than two years.

Members of the group, which calls itself Cult of the Dead Cow, protected O’Rourke’s secret for decades, reluctant to compromise the former Texas Congressman’s political career.

After more than a year of reporting, Menn persuaded O’Rourke to talk on the record. In an interview in late 2017, O’Rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group, on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his Senate race against Ted Cruz in November 2018.



This is exactly why you can’t trust the media. It’s not always about what they say. Many times it’s about what they WON’T say. Why do you think the left pitched a ding-dong fit when CNN hired a conservative to be one of their political news producers. The left knows the media is in their favor and they don’t want to lose that like they did the Supreme Court (we hope).

Joseph Menn says in the interview that he was writing a book about this hacking group, so he agreed to keep this bombshell on the shelf to avoid hurting Beto’s chances against Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz responded to this on Twitter:

This is especially horrendous when you consider the treatment Republicans get from the press. Remember how the AP sent a lot of reporters to dig through the garbage to find dirt on Sarah Palin? And just look how they’ve treated Trump since he’s become president. Yet Obama got a pass from the media on all of his scandals and now it looks like Beto has gotten a pass too.

Pathetic!

The percentage of hackers who are actually intelligent in meaningful ways is tiny (but those few can be ridiculously smart). The fact that O’Rourke was thick with them tells you that he’s rat clever, but lacking in wisdom.

As a computer geek, I learned “hacking” skills in a day. The real pros have a lot of tables of specs memorized, and know which exploits fit which networks. I don’t do memorization. But with a handful of tools (coded up by much more intelligent network geeks), a middle-schooler can cause a lot of trouble.

The vast majority of skilled computer folks see hacking as kind of like playing with trains. You get over it. But you understand the fascination. It’s the ones who keep going back that bear watching.

(Real network pros excepted, of course. Someone builds the trains.)

In this day and age a “hacker” could mean anything from “visited 4Chan” to “he viewed a Facebook group.”

Phishing is considered hacking.

Making a copy account of a Facebook page is considered hacking.

Leaking downloaded emails is considered hacking.

Real, true, for sure computer hacking is the unauthorized access of a secured network. I can honestly say of the thousands of computer geeks I’ve met, maybe, maybe 5 were true hackers, and to a man (and one woman) they were employed by tech firms (Apple, Blizzard) to test networks.

Hackin’ generally refers t’ unauthorized intrusion into a ‘puter or a network. Th’ scallywag engaged in hackin’ activities be known as a hacker. This hacker may alter system or security features t’ accomplish a goal that differs from th’ original purpose o’ th’ system.

Hackin’ can also refer t’ non-malicious activities, usually involvin’ unusual or improvised alterations t’ equipment or processes.

True enough and I’m mostly in your boat or our boats are side by side. Any hacking I did was in the original meaning of the word; A person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities .

The correct term to use for the nefarious stuff is cracker. I suppose anyone with a modicum of interest in software, programming, etal experiences a short foray into that realm. For a while I fiddled with the likes of wireshark and like things on my home network, just to see. There’s nothing out there in the great ether worth my time to actually crack.

Now I just poke around with source based Linux distros, and might actually fix something and file a bug report.

“But when he’s running against Bernie etc, NOW it’s news” Senator Ted Cruz (R) TX

The important thing to remember here is that, eventually, they do eat their own young. However, given that Democrats would have happily elected a murderer to the office of POTUS in 1980, nominating an admitted felon is not even a stretch for them. After all, they nominated Hillary Rodham Clinton, who had committed a STRING of felonies on top of rank malfeasance during her tenure as Secretary of State under Obama that resulted in the deaths of four, brave, patriotic Americans and the conversion of the failed state of Libya into a terrorist stronghold and breeding ground.

Switch back to disqus: You just reminded me of something: Hillary actually helped Trump’s campaign at the beginning because she underestimated his potential to win the election. After the first poll Clinton vs Trump came out, where Trump was ahead by several points, she realized that she had made a big mistake. But it was already too late. Obama then started the operation Hammer and with the help of the DOJ, CIA, and FBI they started to infiltrate Trump’s campaign to destroy him. This is what we know today as the Mueller Probe: 2 1/2 years of no results and 15’000’000.– USD. It’s a small world after all if you think that the Billy Bush tape could have stopped history. Isn’t that amazing!!!!

Just like they gave a free pass to Obama and Hillary the Liberal media did the same with Beta, but we all know this is standard procedure for the left wing media.
Only problem with Beta now is more scrutiny about his creepy past is now surfacing since running for POTUS.
Cyber crimes fantasies about murdering children and obscene poetry is giving us a true picture of this creeps past.

These are the rules that Republicans know they have to play by, before ever stepping foot on the field. Any illusion that these are not the rules is delusional. By and large, the media are not producing factual information through investigative reporting, but are skewing, withholding, ignoring, or flat out lying. As we have seen with many montages, the media get their talking points from the Democrats, and they faithfully execute the game plan.

What is even more disturbing is that you can add the leftists in the bureaucracy to this mix as well. The FBI, IRS, DOJ, etc. are also coordinating (as we have seen as recently as last week) to destroy the right through any measure necessary.

So, in this case, Beto O’Rourke’s real name is Robert O’Dead Cow? I believe that we could track back Robert’s “blood bond” to the Royal Bush family and from there to the UK Royals. They are a lovely chapter I suppose called ” La Familia de Tejas”. When you select an idiot to run, it is because he is “family”. W. Bush was the perfect useful idiot and Jeb would have become the next one. So here he comes Robert with his depressed dog and ugly past.
Now that we have this college admissions scandal, I would love to finally see the educational records from Mr. Obama and how he got in: Foreign student? Who paid what and how much……

AvatarSusitna I actually believe that Obama got into Occidental by claiming he was a foreign exchange student. When he lived in Indonesia with his step father, he attended a Muslim school that you could only attend if you were a citizen of Indonesia. I also think his grades were probably sub par because he screwed off in college and was always hanging out and getting high with the “right” people which were the Marxist professors, the left wing activists and the outcasts. He wrote all about it in his book, Dreams from my Father.

To me this is “Occums Razor.” The simplest explanation is probably true.
