This Surge Knight Was At “The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation”


After more than 20 years, I’ve finally decided to tell the world what I witnessed in 1991, which I believe was one of the biggest turning point in popular music, and ultimately American society. I have struggled for a long time weighing the pros and cons of making this story public as I was reluctant to implicate the individuals who were present that day. So I’ve simply decided to leave out names and all the details that may risk my personal well being and that of those who were, like me, dragged into something they weren’t ready for.

Between the late 80’s and early 90’s, I was what you may call a “decision maker” with one of the more established company in the music industry. I came from Europe in the early 80’s and quickly established myself in the business. The industry was different back then. Since technology and media weren’t accessible to people like they are today, the industry had more control over the public and had the means to influence them anyway it wanted. This may explain why in early 1991, I was invited to attend a closed door meeting with a small group of music business insiders to discuss rap music’s new direction. Little did I know that we would be asked to participate in one of the most unethical and destructive business practice I’ve ever seen.

This could finally be the end of the road for the record-label head who, a generation ago, helped bring the West Coast gangsta rap of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur to the mainstream, pushing aside the pop rap of artists such as MC Hammer and Tone-Loc and putting low-riders and gang signs into heavy rotation on MTV. In the process, Knight established himself as a legendary music-biz tough guy. His exploits — some mythic, some real — during the heyday of Death Row Records have become part of hip-hop lore: In the early Nineties, he allegedly shook down Vanilla Ice into handing over publishing profits, walking the rapper out to a hotel-room balcony to show him how far his fall would be. (“I needed to wear a diaper that day,” Ice said later.) In his memoir, former N.W.A manager Jerry Heller alleged that Knight and his cohorts, bearing baseball bats, intimidated Eazy-E into releasing Dre from his Ruthless Records contract. (The claims have never been substantiated.) Knight was sitting next to Tupac when he was gunned down in 1996 in Las Vegas; his participation in a fight on the night of the shooting would land him in prison for five years on a probation violation.

Analysis of Remarks by SAC Greg Bretzing at a Press Conference to Address the Ongoing Situation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge


With little fanfare, this is a raw analysis of the press conference that went with the release of Remarks by SAC Greg Bretzing at a Press Conference to Address the Ongoing Situation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge written statement present by FBI Portland
January 28, 2016

I will make it as easy to digest as possible within time constraints. This is not a polish piece. This is intended only to document in the most immediate fashion. If it warrants being polished this will be the draft it comes from. To use this analysis, please contact me. All rights reserved. This is the intellectual property of the Julia Clark Organization.

The source of the analysis is from shuff1111 of youtube. I do not know him. He only by chance was one of the first to have the Video of the press conference up. What I do find odd is that the press conference was not recorded and posted by any known agency or corporate media. Thank you shuff1111 for your service.

 

This is the Analysis derived: 

I have highlighted or noted points. This is not intended for laymen explanation. Please ask if you need more explanation or are curious about a highlight or note. 

1:10 trips over the word transparency

1:37 trips over the word several

3:42 video stream fails

3:42 says “Shortly the camera will pan back to” the video feed does not pan when it returns.

3:53 the video feed returns.

3:53 He says, “Oh, heads up.”

4:06 He says, “The camera is panning back to the jeep at this point.”

12:52 He states Oregon State Troupers were the ones that fired the weapons.

13:43 He uses “Umm” and tightened lips and sucked them inward

13:44 Shakes his head in a no fashion

13:47 He says, “That law enforcement showed great restraint while holding his hand in front of him in a barrier type way

13:50 He says “Then when the vehicle, then took off.” his voice quivers

13:51 Uses ‘Ummm”

13:52 He says, “you could see that it just about seriously injured, ahh, a law enforcement officer.”

13:53 a micro head shake

13:58 he says, “as its, as it barrels toward”

14:01 he says, “And that umm” pursed his lips together

14:06 He says, “based on the deadly force policy of the FBI and OSP Umm ahh that “

14:06 and extended blink

14:17 Uses “Umm” then says “as you can see afterwards and as I explained in the video, those pops and sounds that umm. Of course, there is no sounds in the video.”

14:28 He says, “flash bangs, ahh, sponge projectiles that pierce the window and oc gas

14:44 shakes head

14:44 He says “all occupants in the jeep surrendered without incident” shakes head again

14:50 He says “ahh with no violence”

15:00 smiles

15:06 Purse and smacks lips, their latest.

16:48 Serious look, looks, down and to the right, takes a deep breath uses “Umm” 3 times while explaining

18:23 He is asked if this is a stop for a traffic violation. The question clearly amuses him. He first clearly states, “no.” then says, “Not that I’m. Well, then. You know what, I don’t know, there might have been” takes a ha, “that was not the purpose of the call err the stop”

  • This is troubling. He clearly and jovially changes the case file to fit his theory. He says,”No.” firmly, then catches himself. Dismisses himself and stops that dismissal midsentence. then moves to the willing chair with the statement, “well, then”, and  makes a choice to fudge the records with the justification, “You know what” statement, then proceeds to change the record.
  • However, his utterance and mistaken word of using call instead of stop. Highly suggests that  that the call the Bundy’s had hours before from the FBI negotiator was also a fabrication and not in good faith.

 

18:29 He takes a question about distance. He says that he “You know, the exact distance, I can’t tell you. That’s why we actually show you the video. You can tell that a period of time went by and that they were traveling at a high rate of speed. Umm. He purses lips and licks them. “And they had plenty of. And again they were, they were stopped for well over four minutes. And then they chose.. as I said two nights ago or last night.” smacks lips, “Actions have consequences”

19:19 stumbles over the word truck, using car instead and correcting himself.

19:23 he says, “And is currently in our custody, umm” then purse lips

19:34 he says, “But umm as the video clearly shows”

Screenshots of questionable moments.

These are points noted while watching of questionable moments.

4 Alternate Theories on Who Hacked Sony — NYMag


While North Korea complained about The Interview to the United Nations in July, it appears the film’s connection to the Sony attack originated in the media. In an email sent to Sony executives three days before the attack, the apparent hackers wrote in broken English, “monetary compensation we want.” There was no mention of The Interview in these initial communications, and on December 1 someone claiming to be a Guardians of Peace spokesperson told CSO Online that reports citing the film as the motivation for the hack were untrue. “We are an international organization including famous figures in the politics and society from several nations such as United States, United Kingdom and France,” the hacker claimed. “We are not under direction of any state.”

being able to uy someone would have been useful in getting information to be able to bust him and his location.

One time when I was having  very difficult time with cowing from many redflag accounts, rotharmy put up a video that had been obtained by surveillance . It was a surveillance of him I had no doubt. After that the cowing against me lightened up

I wonder if I can find the video I am speaking of.  Nope could not find it. If I happen upon it in any of my blogs, I’ll put it over here, if I remember to.

Sony Pictures Knew of Gaps in Computer Network Before Hack Attack | Re/code


Auditors found that since transitioning from a third-party vendor in September 2013, Sony Pictures had failed to notify the corporate security team to monitor newly added devices, such as web servers and routers.

Studio management told the auditors its corporate security team is focused on bolstering devices on the perimeter of Sony’s networks and that it hasn’t applied “the same level of rigor” for other, non-security devices such as routers and web servers. The document doesn’t go into detail as to why a different standard was applied.

By the end of July, Sony Pictures provided a current inventory of all devices to be tracked.

Auditors also found that Sony Pictures failed to reconcile the list of security devices its corporate team should have been monitoring with those it was monitoring. As a result, they might have missed additional devices being added to or removed from the networking, adding that “critical security devices may not be monitored.”

Sony Pictures’ in-house staff pledged to develop a process for keeping track of its devices by Oct. 31 — barely a month before hackers made their presence on the studio’s corporate network known.
