🔴UPDATE – 01/15/2016: There is a misunderstanding that has been spread (the individual has humbly apologized) that this post asks or draws a conclusion about the SERVER on which this website sits. It is clear that the website DOES NOT sit on a government server. That is not the question. This post asks a QUESTION (and QUESTION ONLY) about the DOMAIN REGISTRANT ADDRESS, NOT WEBSITE SERVER, used by the registrant on the reservation account. >>Please READ THE POST CAREFULLY before drawing conclusions.<<
A website has emerged, defendyourbase.net, that is a supposed representation of the militia that has repossessed the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. Below is a snapshot.
Upon discovering this website, I immediately began a small investigation starting with this question: “to whom is the website registered?” I visited WhoIs.com and made quite an interesting discovery: defendyourbase.net is registered under the following address:
The first red flag arose when I saw, “Washington, DC.” Then I looked up the address. In case you don’t recognize that address, here is 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington DC:
Yes, it is the White House.
This is the start of an investigation, so no conclusions have yet been drawn. However, I thought this was a very odd find and worthy of the public noting it.
Here are some questions:
- Who is this, “David Fry?”
- Does the archaic design of this website reflect typical government sloppy work, or is David really that bad of a designer?
- Was David Fry inserted into this occupation by the US government as an informant or provocateur?
- And, of course, why is defendyourbase.net registered to the White House?
The question could also be asked, “did the registrant put the White House address in there as a ‘stick-it-to-the-man’ type joke?” I Highly doubt it because all registration information would be mailed to the White House.
One last detail: A lookup of the website’s admin phone number, (518) 558-5500, led to a residence in New York and the tech name address is in Florida. Below is a snapshot of the entire WhoIs entry as of today, or you can see it for yourself here.
