According to Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake, police officers responded on Friday to a call of shots fired when the RV noticed a reported warning that the bomb would detonate in 15 minutes. Police evacuated the surrounding buildings and called the bomb squad. Shortly afterwards, the RV exploded.
A motive remained elusive more than 24 hours after Nashville Christmas explosion as investigators worked round-the-clock to raise unanswered questions about a recreational vehicle that blew up on a quiet holiday morning on a nearly deserted route. The attack, which damaged the AT&T building, continued to devastate cell phone and hospital communications in several southern states on Saturday, according to The Associated Press.
National File reported that the location of the Nashville explosion was in the same spot as a data center owned by a company called SunGard, on 200 Commerce Street.
The key points of the report are following:
- Silver Lake, a $75 billion investment firm with questionable ties to China, bought SunGard in 2005, according to a Blackstone press release.
- In 2015, SolarWinds was purchased by Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo for $4.5 billion, according to the SolarWinds website.
- Ten years later, Silver Lake sold SunGard to Fidelity National Information Services Inc. for nearly $11 billion in August 2015.
- Silver Lake has questionable ties to the communist Chinese, who President Donald Trump suggested may be behind the SolarWinds cyber attack as National File reported.
- SolarWinds board director Kenneth Hao “led the establishment” of a $75 billion investment firm into China. According to his biography on the Silver Lake website, Kenneth Hao “led the establishment of the firm’s offices in China and Japan and led Silver Lake’s investments in Alibaba Group” from 2008-2011.
- Months before the SolarWinds cyber attack, Thoma Bravo bought JD Power from a mysterious Chinese company called XIO Group for $1.88 billion in 2019, as National File reported.
- According to the Washington Post, both Thoma Bravo and Silver Lake sold hundreds of millions of dollars in SolarWinds shares just days before the announcement of the SolarWinds breach, raising concerns about potential insider trading.
- Furthermore, National File has confirmed that Dominion Voting Systems does in fact use at least one of SolarWinds’ products.
Dominion Voting Systems’ server connected to China and Iran
A former military intelligence analyst claims to have “unambiguous evidence” that the Dominion Voting Systems servers were both accessible to and compromised by rogue actors like Iran and China thanks to digital forensic analysis.
The claim appeared in an affidavit that accompanied attorney Sidney Powell’s 75-page lawsuit against officials in Michigan including Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and the Board of State Canvassers. The complaint, which was filed on November 25, says the affidavit was authored by an ex-electronics intelligence analyst who is in the 305th U. S. Military Intelligence Battalion and allegedly shows that “the Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent U.S. general election in 2020.”
The analyst reportedly has extensive experience serving as a white hat hacker for some of the world’s top election specialists. The identity of the analyst was redacted in the affidavit, but the individual found several interrelationships with foreign entities in a scan of Dominion network nodes, including access to a Dominion server by a network from Hunan, China. A different forensic review found links to an Iranian IP address, and these behaviors taken together indicate that foreign agents from aggressor nations had recent access to American voter lists.
