Equifax Says Cyberattack May Have Hit 143 Million Customers

Equifax Inc. said its systems were struck by a cyberattack that may have affected about 143 million U.S. customers of the credit reporting agency, shedding light on one of the largest and most intrusive breaches in history.

Intruders accessed names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and driver’s license numbers, Equifax said in a statement. Credit card numbers for about 209,000 consumers were also accessed, the company said. Equifax shares dropped more than 8 percent in after-hours trading.

“This is clearly a disappointing event for our company, and one that strikes at the heart of who we are and what we do. I apologize to consumers and our business customers for the concern and frustration this causes,” Chief Executive Officer Richard Smith said.

The company set up a website,, that consumers can use to determine whether their information was compromised. It’s also offering free credit-file monitoring and identify-theft protection.

The incident is a stark reminder of the risk of consumers’ personal data being exposed online. It’s particularly worrisome for the millions of people who trust credit-reporting agencies like Equifax to handle and protect their financial information. [snip]

“It’s a huge deal,” said Tim Crosby, senior consultant with security-assessment firm Spohn, “You would expect these guys to have compartmentalized this data far enough away from a Web server — that there would not be any way to directly access it.” [snip]

If you have credit, (who doesn’t) you need to check whether your information has been compromised. Use the link here to find out: You will have to go through the chapcha check to get into it. DO IT! It is your security and money. Oh and by the way, IT’S ALL TRUMP’S FAULT including CA fires and the hurricanes. Why not!


Breaking NEWS


The Fake News didn’t report this

and it won’t make the national news. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in this case.
However, the MSM picks up on every word said by the President. and his family.

Malia Obama Fired From Cushy Internship At Spanish Embassy

There are reports that this story is false. We do know she is a dope smoker. She worked at the AMERICAN embassy, not the Spanish Embassy in Spain in 2016. If it proves to be false, we shall retract it as fast as the regular media does with stories about Republicans.

How Single Payer Health Care works

There are some real benefits to SPHC that other systems cannot match mainly reducing costs sharply and quickly. Since the fiscal controls are removed from the medical side of the equation, no ethical input is governing decisions.

ObamaCare has the same mechanism, the so called “Death Panels” which the Democrats pooh-poohed but those decision making entities wee included to remove those over a certain age and others whose conditions would cost above a certain level.

President Trump Offers to Help Charlie Gard, a Child Ordered Off Life Support in Britain

Since the British single-payer health system and the European Court of Human Rights have decided that a very sick child in London must be taken off life support — killed by state order — and not allowed to go to the United States for an experimental treatment, President Donald J. Trump announced on Twitter today that if the United states “can help little #CharlieGard,” we would “be delighted to do so.” [snip]

Although Chris Gard and Connie Yates reportedly have raised nearly $2 million to pay for the experimental treatment of their son, the British health care legal system will not allow them to take their child to the United States for treatment.

According to Crux, a Catholic online news source, “The therapy Connie Yates and Chris Gard want to give to their son is currently being administered to Arturito Estopinian, a six-year old who continues to improve on daily doses of the therapy. His parents, Arthur Estopinian and his wife Olga, have been in ‘constant contact’ with the Gard family.” [snip]

Commenting on the case, National Review magazine stated,  “The precedent established by Charlie Gard’s case will metastasize, as similar decisions have. It will be made to apply to children with more-familiar illnesses and better prognoses; it will be used to dismiss the input of parents whose values and priorities when it comes to medical care and end-of-life issues do not align with those of the state; it may be used simply to clear beds for ‘worthier’ patients in a health-care system with very limited resources.

“This, presumably, will be ‘compassionate,’ too. Any day now, they’ll kill Charlie Gard. But it’s in his own best interest. Don’t you see?”

Of course we see. With the Progressive view, allowing any individual to have a choice contrary to the State’s edict simply cannot be tolerated.

This used to translate in past times to “Droit du Roi” peasants.

One doubts that this will ever occur again since travel by Motor Vessel (MV) isn’t common now. This world moved to fast for the comforts and luxury of such mode of excursion.

This is possible only aboard a ship since other transport modes move too quickly to have this timing and position hold true.

The passenger steamer SS Warrimoo was quietly knifing its way through the waters of the mid-Pacific on its way from Vancouver to Australia.

The navigator had just finished working out a star fix and brought the result to the master, Captain John Phillips. The Warrimoo’s position was LAT.0 degrees 31′ N and LON.179 degrees30’W. The date was 30 December 1899.

First Mate Payton broke in…..”You know what this means…..we’re only a few miles from the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line”
Captain Phillips was prankish enough to take full advantage of the opportunity for achieving this navigational freak of a lifetime. He called his navigators to the bridge to check and double check the ship’s position. He changed course slightly so as to bear directly on his mark. Then he adjusted the engine speed.

The calm weather and clear night worked in his favour.
At midnight the SS Warrimoo lay on the Equator at exactly the point where it crosses the International Date Line.

The consequences of this bizarre position were several.
The bow of the ship was in the Southern Hemisphere and the middle of summer.
The stern was in the Northern Hemisphere and in the middle of winter. The date in the aft part of the ship was 31 December 1899. Forward it was 1 January 1900.

This ship was therefore not only in two different days, two different months, two different years and two different seasons, but in two different centuries all at the same time.

We can’t imagine anyone taking the time to arrange something like this now. The world is more concerned with much more mundane matters like making war, cheating one another over a few farthings and on a more personal level, being quite uncivil toward each other.

Parsing in Vermont, the Proggy way

One might ask Governor Scott just what oath he took when he was sworn into office. It seems to us here at Loon Watch, that oaths taken by public officials usually contain such words as uphold the law, follow the Constitution and other niceties like not breach the public trust and not commit misdemeanors.

We haven’t found any wording allowing for upholding only those laws found in favor. Strange that the people writing the Constitutions both State(s) and US didn’t put in that wording. Guess they weren’t Progressives.

From Vermont Watchdog:

Speaking at a press conference Thursday, Republican Gov. Phil Scott said he would consider deporting some criminal aliens residing in Vermont illegally.

The statement represents a modest change in the governor’s approach to illegal immigration, which has been at odds with the Trump administration’s policy and executive orders.

 HERE is the full posting from:

More excerpts from the article follow:

On March 28, Scott signed into law S.79 , a bill crafted to shield illegal immigrants from “compulsory collection of personally identifying information, or dissemination of that information for purposes of establishing a mandatory federal registry or database.”

Immigration experts have told Watchdog that concealing data about illegal immigrants could cause Vermont to lose federal dollars it receives to support a variety of programs, including law enforcement. [snip]

Vermont Watchdog has reported that among the characteristics the state wants hidden from federal immigration enforcement officers are immigration status, national origin, religion, race and color. But, following Scott’s statement on Thursday, it is uncertain how deportation in Vermont can occur without some state officials revealing the status of criminal immigrants in contradiction to the spirit of S.79.
