Limestone Networks, a Dallas company, tries to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter

Three times today, a company based out of Dallas Texas, Limestone Networks, made several attempts to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter.  Every single attack Limestone made, our firewalls blocked out.

In 1986, Congress passed the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the federal statute that prohibits unauthorized computer access. Under federal law, unauthorized computer access describes the act of:

  1. Knowingly accessing a computer without authorization to obtain:
  2. Financial information
  3. Information from a governmental department or agency
  4. Information from any protected computer with the intent to defraud
  5. Knowingly causing the transmission of a program, information, or code from a protected computer
  6. Knowingly accessing a protected computer and causing damage and loss to that computer

According to our counsel, the penalty for hacking includes high fines and sentences of up to 10 years of prison time.

Limestone Networks is based out of Dallas Texas, and the official IP address that tried to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter several times today is:

Limestone Networks was contacted for comment but refused. Bigger question for us reporters is why? Why would a company based out of Dallas be so interested in hacking into the Gold Bar Reporter?

The Gold Bar Reporter is a small online news source from Washington State.  Dedicated to exposing mainly corrupt politicians, especially ones that prey on our children.

 

Perhaps someone from Limestone networks is helping a disgraced and now terminated Director of Snohomish County Emergency Management  cover up his crimes against women and children?  Could this be some kind of connection to the pedophilia ring that Jack Abramoff blew the whistle about involving Washington State politicians from  Olympia during the late 1990s who were sexually abusing kids inside Washington State’s foster care system?

Interesting to note that Boys Town in Omaha Nebraska keeps looking up John E Pennington, Snohomish County.

Remember Boys Town was the center of massive sex abuse scandal from the 1900s called the ” The Franklin Sex Abuse Scandal.”

 


Disgraced man who killed 43 people in Oso mudslides using false academic credentials, again!

penny

John Edward Pennington, labeled a sociopath and declared autistic by two King County Washington State doctors, committing more felonies against the taxpayers, once again caught using false academic credentials, but this time in Alaska

We recently learned that John E Pennington is on the loose claiming to be a PhD student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  Did he forget that he needs a real Bachelor’s Degree first?

In 2017, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud) were held liable to Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block for the tort of forgery, see below.

 

From FEMA to Snohomish County, to Pierce County Washington, “Lunatic on the loose”

On February 22, 2017, Pierce College public official and man responsible for killing of 43 people in the Oso mudslides, John E. Pennington, verbally assaulted a Pierce County Sheriff’s Officer caught on camera.  He also verbally threatened the Gold Bar Reporter’s process server who served John Pennington with more complaints and a subpoena.

Unfortunately, John Pennington’s criminal conduct was caught on camera and witnessed by several onlookers at the Piece County Courthouse, including three Sheriff’s Officers.

The Gold Bar Reporters recently learned that John Pennington has been treated for major mental health problems, and was kicked out of Vanderbilt College as a result.

Imagine a man with mental health problems sat as a Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County.  A major breach to health and welfare to the taxpayers of Washington State.


John Pennington is being sued for his latest racketeering crimes and posting defamatory and untrue statements on a website he and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington run titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  Both were served with new complaints on Thursday, and by John Pennington’s threats and tactics to intimidate court officers were witnessed on camera.

” Looney Tunes, What’s up Doc? ”

“Lunatic on the loose” John E Pennington has been trying for over eight years to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter’s reports on his and our former bank frauding Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud Snohomish County, Washington 2005).    Why, to hide their criminal racketeering conduct the Gold Bar Reporter have been exposing for over the last ten years, including a foe online website the Penningtons set up to cyber-stalk their opponents.

Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in November 2016, and he too admitted he was a anonymous cyber-stalker on the Penningtons’ website while he was a Gold Bar public official. Beavers and the City are being sued for gross civil rights violations.

On Thursday February 22, 2017, the lunatics tried for the tenth time to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter, but this time forum shopping in Pierce County.  A county where Crystal Hill Pennington doesn’t live and a county where John Pennington managed to fraud state taxpayers ( and our children) with false academic credentials obtaining a job teaching our youngsters.

Imagine you sign up for Homeland Security degree at Pierce College and your classes are being taught by a man who has admitted to having and using false academic credentials


 

FALSE ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS, JOHN E. PENNINGTON’S FRAUD

UPON THE TAXPAYERS

http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/    ( Seattle Times report on John Pennington’s false credentials)

 

Please see the attached ABOVE PDF Government Accountability Report  ( or link provided above) on public official John E Pennington’s online diploma mill school of choice.  I also include Seattle Times article in support of John Pennington’s false academic credential.

 

As both reports unmistakably confirms the IRS found that California Coastal sold degrees at flat rates.  As such,  Mark Lindquist, please consider this letter and supporting evidence in support on my criminal complaint against John E. Pennington as he produced his fraudulent online degree to obtain a benefit in violation of

 

RCW 9A.60.070

(a) In a written or oral advertisement or other promotion of a business; or

(b) With the intent to:

(i) Obtain employment;

(ii) Obtain a license or certificate to practice a trade, profession, or occupation;

(iv) Obtain admission to an educational program in this state; or

(v) Gain a position in government with authority over another person, regardless of whether the person receives compensation for the position.

(3) The definitions in this subsection apply throughout this section and RCW 28B.85.220.

(a) “False academic credential” means a document that provides evidence or demonstrates completion of an academic or professional course of instruction beyond the secondary level that results in the attainment of an academic certificate, degree, or rank, and that is not issued by a person or entity that: (i) Is an entity accredited by an agency recognized as such by rule of the student achievement council or has the international equivalents of such accreditation; or (ii) is an entity authorized as a degree-granting institution by the student achievement council; or (iii) is an entity exempt from the requirements of authorization as a degree-granting institution by the student achievement council; or (iv) is an entity that has been granted a waiver by the student achievement council from the requirements of authorization by the council. Such documents include, but are not limited to, academic certificates, degrees, coursework, degree credits, transcripts, or certification of completion of a degree.

(4) Issuing a false academic credential is a class C felony.

(5) Knowingly using a false academic credential is a gross misdemeanor.

 

As for Pierce College, I’d like some comment from the Dean of Students and/or  Board of Trustees Chair Ms. Roseblatt on why Pierce College approved employment of John E. Pennington with such fraudulent degrees.

As a taxpayer, I have standing to bring not only a criminal complaint for John Pennington false filings, but also a civil charge for state ethics violations.

Our children deserve better from us.


VERBALLY ASSAULTING COURT OFFICERS

John E. Pennington has yet one more credential to add his resume, threatening public and court officers.

With each new credential, the Gold Bar Reporter will update his resume.

Criminal charges have been filed against John E Pennington with his court appearance this month.
