Daily Pundit Is Down Under DDOS Attack – Again

Yes, Daily Pundit once again came under a DDOS attack starting about 7:45 AM PT today.

There seems to be an early morning time frame pattern to these assaults.

Unfortunately, the new mechanisms I implemented to try to thwart these attacks have failed.  The site is completely down with a dead server at the moment.  Hostgator admins are working on the problem, but at the moment I don’t have a time frame for a resolution.

My regular email is down, but you can reach me at icebergwtq@gmail.com if necessary.


Daily Pundit Down Under DOS Attack

Since about eight a.m. Pacific time today, the DP main site has been experiences a Denial of Service attack that has brought down the site.

Not much I, or Hostgator (apparently) can do about it until it subsides.  My apologies.

Welcome to the Daily Pundit Backup Site

I’d been planning to do something like this for a while now, but never quite got around to doing it.

Today, what with D’s main site being down for more than six hours (as of now) I went ahead and pulled the trigger.

I’ll add a link to the menu at the main site as soon as it comes back up, and I suggest you bookmark that link.  I’ll be updating and whatever here whenever the main site isn’t working.

This is a barebones site – no archives beyond what are created going forward, but it will at least permit the conversation to keep on going.

Thanks for your patience!

This Fish Stinks From the Head Down

The Obama campaign takes its vendetta against a political opponent to the FEC. The FEC staff, as part of an extraordinary campaign to bring down AIP and other 501(c)(4) groups, reaches out to Lois Lerner, the woman overseeing IRS targeting. Mr. McGahn has also noted that FEC staff has in recent years had an improperly tight relationship with the Justice Department—to which the Obama campaign also complained about AIP.

It’s becoming ever more clear that Obama won the 2012 election by outright fraud.  He used government agencies to not only suppress the vote, but to enable massive and widespread illegal voting for his side.
