"A Man Of Many Perversions" – Federal Cybersecurity Head Convicted Of Child Porn Charges

The following story is a warning as to why centralized power is so dangerous. It doesn’t matter whether the power is political or corporate, overly centralized power in all forms must be resisted whenever it appears. The worst of all worlds is when centralized political and corporate power unite in an unholy alliance, which is what has happened to America in recent decades. When this occurs, the combined forces of oligarchy simply begin to rapaciously feast on the citizenry with zero accountability. This is a fair description of the United States in 2014.

The primary problem with centralized power is that sociopaths (for obvious reasons) gravitate toward, and greatly covet, positions of power. Once entrenched in such positions, they are able to act upon their perversions with general immunity, and if they are caught, are often left in positions of power by others who at that point “own them” via blackmail. This of course is nothing new, it is how the game of power, politics and economics has been played since the beginning of time. It is also why decentralization of power is the natural evolution we as a species must embrace in order to build a better world.

Enter Timothy DeFoggi, the one-time cybersecurity director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, who received several awards for his government “service” over the years. The self-proclaimed man of “many perversions,” frequented a child porn site called PedoBook where he “exchanged private messages with other members expressing interest in raping, beating and murdering infants and toddlers.”

More from Wired:

As the acting cybersecurity chief of a federal agency, Timothy DeFoggi should have been well versed in the digital footprints users leave behind online when they visit web sites and download images.

 

But DeFoggi—convicted today in Nebraska on three child porn charges including conspiracy to solicit and distribute child porn—must have believed his use of the Tor anonymizing network shielded him from federal investigators.

 

But DeFoggi’s conviction is perhaps more surprising than others owing to the fact that he worked at one time as the acting cybersecurity director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. DeFoggi worked for the department from 2008 until January this year. A department official told Business Insider that DeFoggi worked in the office of the assistant secretary for administration as lead IT specialist but a government budget document for the department from this year(.pdf) identifies a Tim DeFoggi as head of OS IT security operations, reporting to the department’s chief information security officer.

 

Although anyone could use the sites, registered users like DeFoggi—who was known online under the user names “fuckchrist” and “PTasseater”—could set up profile pages with an avatar, often child porn images, and personal information and upload files. The site archived more than 100 videos and more than 17,000 child porn and child erotica images, many of them depicting infants and toddlers being sexually abused by adults.

 

DeFoggi became part of that sting after becoming a registered member of PedoBook in March 2012 where he remained active until December that year when the FBI shuttered it. During this time DeFoggi, who described himself as “having many perversions,” solicited child porn images from other members, viewed images and exchanged private messages with other members expressing interest in raping, beating and murdering infants and toddlers.

 

DeFoggi received many commendations during his government career, according to an exhibit list created by the government for his trial. The list includes several certificates of award from the U.S. Treasury, a certificate of appreciation from the State Department for his work on a Hurricane Katrina task force, several documents related to computer courses he attended and certifications he received.

"The penalty for pedophilia and other forms of rape should be:  THE DEATH PENALTY."

Then everyone that disagreed with them would be guilty of pedophilia. Like how currently everyone, including those fighting the DC US' and ZATO's occupation and rape of their country, is a 'terrorist.'

Government is, always is, the enemy, and more government can never fix government.

An American, not US subject.

Hell the US Government is the greatest Kiddie Porn producer of them all.

 

With the NSA and CyberNanny...I mean...what more can they ask for?

 

It is well known that the US Military, the Pentagon, was involved in a Kiddie Porn scandal which was quietly covered up. The NSA, after all, is the US Military Intelligence branch.

 

The US Military ENCOURAGED CHILD RAPE in Afghanistan and Iraq as part of the "torturing some folks" sessions. That is so easily documented.

 

AND THE TAXPAYER PAID TO HAVE THIS DONE. FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS SUPPORT.

 

Two plus two is five?

 

The people whom buy their kids Cell Phones, and Personal Computers in their bedrooms, and the rest, are doubly complicit in that they pay for these services from Private Corporations and then pay the US Government to spy on their children.

 

If anyone deserves the Death Penalty for the production of Child Porn then many here need look no further than in the mirror at themselves.

 

They will dismiss my post, perhaps, and continue PAYING their Phone bills so as to give the US Government a look at their children's privates.

 

Most are so deserving of the guillotine, Chris in KC. Where do you start?

Openly satanic. How many higher ups in the gov are of a similar bent? Far too many...

Yes, if you desire to rape, beat and kill young children you should:

1. Get your dick cut off

2. Offer your organs up to someone that really needs them (sorry, not enough funds for a morphine drip)

3. End it with a $.50 bullet to the brain

BellyBrain's picture

I like the way you're thinking here.  Except that their organs are probably tainted by their sickness.  Best to just cremate or compost them.

has to be nambla member lurking...  who else who down arrow any of this...  what is it they say now, its not disease, its an orientation?  sure it is...  and vampirism is trendy too...

So which child molestor / bankster / sociopath higher up the food chain did he cross or offend?   

That's the REAL question we should be asking.

"Here, I need you to investigate this child pornography ring.  You need to go deep undercover!!!!!"
"GASP!!!!  Look what he has on his hard drive!!!!"

Yeah, it confuses me.  I'll never know the truth.

'socio-path' is a p.c. term for a psychopath

These guys have Jack the Ripper beat by many orders of magnitude when it comes to piling up bodies and destroying peoples' lives.

NickVegas's picture

Yeah, it must be true because computers can't be hacked. I'm sure this man has no enemies.

PT's picture

and it doesn't even have to be hacked.  See my comment above: 5157092

I repeat:  I do not know.

PT's picture

But now the holder of child pornography has been caught, I only assume that soon the makers of the child porn will also be caught, right?  Right?

In the mean time, I shall remain suspicious of antivirus and Windows updates.  I mean, why could they possibly take so long?  What are they really up/downloading?  How could anyone know?  How do I really know that the empty sectors on my hard drive are really empty? ...

(it's easy even if you're not tech sawy, give it a try you won't regret, it's not only safer, it's faster, ubuntu may be the distro that works for the most right out of the box)

Here's the thing about big government.... we all know it's attracts sociopaths of all stripes.  That much I think we can generally agree about.  But do you know WHY?  Big government is about CONTROL in all aspects.  Including their own (especially their own).  Who easier to control and do your bidding that people you have dirt on and can manipulate/threaten into doing what you want them to?  You can use them and then conveniently dispose of them at whatever time fits your plans.

I will bet you they had the dirt on this sick-o LONG before these actions were taken against him.

john39's picture

If you want people who will do evil things to others, it helps to pick people who are already evil. In that vein, pretty sure they have a certain type of profile they prefer for cops these days...

NoDebt's picture

The higher the office, the stronger the pull of the psycho magnet.  Cops are pretty much entry-level positions in that regard.

"Here's the thing about big government.... we all know it's attracts sociopaths of all stripes."

This needs correcting. It is not "big" government alone which attracts sociopaths. All government attracts sociopaths.

The reason for limiting the size of government is not to eliminate sociopaths. It is to limit their power to damage society for their own benefit. Sociopaths will still run for office and will still say whatever they must say to be elected.

OldPhart's picture

Anyone else seriously consider running for office, then realizing that, if you somehow won, you'd have to work with those people on a day to day basis?

That has stopped me every time the thought came up.

centralized power is so dangerous.

Agreed, and often confused with Globalization, which in  its purest form isn't and doesn't neet to be about centralization at all.

 

Urban Roman's picture

Downtoolong is thinking of the architects and architecture of the Internet.

Policies and standards need to be universal and worldwide, and completely open and transparent.

Administration and enforcement need to be local, on as small a scale as possible.

Neither of the above rules are currently employed by the sociopaths-in-charge.

Sociopaths that grow up on the streets rise to the top of criminal enterprises (Al Capone).

 

Sociopaths that grow up in boarding schools and attend ivy league institutions rise to the top of financial and government institutions.

Very briefly. For a few short years I worked inside a Federal Govenment agency. I saw the type of people who were promoted to supervisor and manger positions, I learned what type sought advancement inside the non competitve world of Federal Jobs. Promotion was based on being one of a select set of back stabbers and sell outs, and power seeking fools. Disgust with this slime made me desperate to go elsewhere, and I did. A warning, these people are not normal, they are sick, evil, self centered and actually believe power is given to them for a reason.

This pervert kid fucker, who held great power over citizens is the tip of an ice berg of social blood suckers, and evil doers. I simply hate this scum, my hate is based on seeing them up close and personal.

You ol cold lake fokker, you. I look forward to meeting you halfway. Maybe in Kentucky. Gen Samuel Hopkins monument is there. He became a Senator after he left here, right across the water. Became a famous Senator, etc. But the home he built when he was a young hero, on George Washington's staff. Served at Valley Forge and before and beyond. And several of GW's staff have rolled down the creeks to be with me. Their Ghost's asked me to tell you to keep up the good work. Good Night.

Mark Foley - another classic example of perv-slime.

And THAT motherfucker is walking the streets.

MORE proof that the government is not to be trusted  - with fuck all.
