JKB UPDATE: Joseph Kristian Black & Very Interesting Article / Point of View of author Lee J
Main stream Media will take anything, LulzSec & Anonymous are not Extremist
Published July 30th, 2011 By Lee J
NOTE: This is our POV on the situation that’s on-going,
Over the past few days, a lot of main stream media outlets have got our attention, now its unlike us to go off stories or even read stories from the main stream media as it is almost all ways wrong or misleading information/reports, but this story is hot topic and totally wrong in every aspect, the media has been played and drawn into pit of shit.
Ok so you wonder what this is about, in case the topic has not given u any sort of clue ill break it down nice and slowly.
So lets look at this article from guardian.co.uk, first the information they have used is purely from @th3j35t3r aka Jester a well known hater of Anonymous and Jester has put together a Anonymous-LulzSec-Terrorist-Ties”>document and uploaded it to scribe about Anonymous, @LulzSec, @anonymousSabu twitter accounts avatar and a music artist.
So you serious guardian? u buy that crap?
Now lets get this part clear. the music artist for one, is just like any other who sings, they use words to battle, this does not mean they support or do the things they may say in songs etc… BEAST1333 is a music artist and that’s all. Many Past and present artist do the same, Tupac, N.W.A, even ice-t and Mr CUBE…. so yeah take a look at the wider picture. Music is Music.
Speaks out freely and DOES NOT make any claims of links to terror networks.
anonymouSabu The Real Sabu
@jamesrbuk #1 I’m not the leader of LulzSec. #2 I’m still surprised jester googling “hamas flag” and posting ties to my avatar = newsworthy
Jester is simply a troll, who has a hating for Anonymous, LulzSec or anything to do with them. In the past he has him self said to be taking down anonymous and Lulz Sec, that he has doxs on them and all the normal stuff, so u can see a trend of whats been going on.
As you have probably noticed we do not follow him at all, and there is comes down to two words, attention seeker.
Some Reporter:( we not going to cause more trouble for him )
Ok recently around the time of the Murdock hack we caught action of a bit of crap between the LulzSec Twitter account and a well know reporter. By the end of this argument the reporter had said “not to mess with reporters”, which i guess could come across as a threat…so yeah keep that in mind whilst thinking about why a main stream media has picked these stories up at all.
Ok so i wanna point a simple fact out, Anonymous is made up of everyone and anyone, Of coarse there is a possibility but the real fact is, the real anonymous and lulzsec are not Extremist, Terrorist or anything along them lines. Anonymous fights for a reason, a real reason they support any and every country, they support you if your black, white, fat, skinny, disabled, or even dead…. Anonymous is a Activist group that Uses Hacktivism to get the word across, this does not make them terrorist, it makes them Modern day Protesters, doing peaceful protest, not flooding the streets with hundreds of people who leave litter and a big mess to clean up afterwards or going on a rampage that costs hundreds of thousands to fix, this is the most peaceful form of protesting you can get, they use Art, Media, social media, and fingers to type as their tools of choice, once again PEACEFUL PROTEST.
Now some BS doxs:
Latest from Jester:http://pastebin.com/vrVey16U
And some dox: http://pastebin.com/qnQYF64s
Couple of the doxs.
Dox — The Jester
OPERATION FROSTY – ANONFRONT
1. To determine The Jester’s real identity.
2. To determine the identity of Joe Black & his relation to The Jester.
Results (so far…)
Real Name: Ryan M Berg (Believe M is Michael)
What he looks like: http://homepost.kpbs.org/files/2010/12/Ryan-Berg1.png (To be honest, I expected him to be an obese American computer geek who lives in his Mom’s house, his XerXes tool open in one window and his level 85 Human Paladin called Ihatelulzsec in another…)

The whois simply suggests that the site is protected by a proxy. Aww well.
Before the organization, Ryan served as an infantry Marine, deploying twice to Iraq–once in 2004 and again 2006. Upon his honorable discharge in 2007,
he went to school on the New GI Bill and soon transferred to the University of California where he majored in English and Public Discourse.
Other: Attends or attended Berkeley University
Served two tours in Iraq as a Marine.
Member of Returning Veterans of America
Managing director at Black&Berg Security (Berg being Ryan’s part of the company, I don’t think this company is a full time job…)
An article about Ryan M Berg and his military history was posted here on December 21st, 2010: http://homepost.kpbs.org/tag/whatfits-org/
Ryan Berg also had a website for his pseudo-fake security firm: www.blackbergsecurity.us

Another “venture” that Berg seemed to attempt was Web Design. He started a Facebook page called “Right Face Web Design”
The page on Facebook only got 7 likes. Aww
The description on the page says:
Right Face web design is a full service web and graphic design firm located in Omaha, Nebraska. We employ a team of educated and talented web artists that would love to meet with you to discuss your needs.
At Right Face, we do it all–from designing a custom website to writing and perfecting the content on every page. When you choose Right Face, you can count on professionalism, quality, and dependability.
The address on this page was PO BOX 24602, Omaha, NE 68124. This suggests it was in 2007, before moving to Concord in 2008.
He created a website for it, www.rightface.org, however this didn’t last long. The whois simply suggests that it was behind a proxy.
Another site with evidence of Ryan B on is a simply advertisement for a Pool Table. Lulz.
Pool Table, Olhausen 9 foot Light to Medium in Color – $1500 (50th Izard, Dundee): For Sale in omaha
$1500 very little wiggle room, however I will lower the price because of the cost a bit because of the disassembly/reassembly. It is in wonderful condition, so come over and have look, we can play a few games, and you can decide whether you’d like to take her home with you. I bought it 5 years ago and played on it for 2 years. I am selling it because I just graduated from college and I don’t want to find a job right away. Go figure.
call me 510.684.5316 available anytime.
Location: 50th Izard, Dundee
The number matches Ryan’s number given on other sites.
Here’s a random account, nothing filled in but it seems to be Berg, again.
There could be more d0x I’ve missed out, so this will remain unfinished.
To come next: Joseph K Black
Dox — Joseph K Black
OPERATION FROSTY – ANONFRONT
Now it’s Joe Black’s turn. If you haven’t already read J35T3R’s d0x, read them first.
Joseph Kristian Black makes no attempt to hide his identity, although I warn you; this might be for a reason. I believe Joe Black HIMSELF is a living Psyop. But this is all the information I’ve garnered on him, whether he himself be real or not.

Working with the students at ITT Technical Institute was a very rewarding position for me. I was able to make a huge impact in a very short amount of time.

I was fortunate enough to be able to work in the same place that I went to school and those memories of both the students and the faculty are among some of my favorites.
