SolarWinds, the company that suffered a devastating cyber attack in March, is owned by Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo. Until 2015, Silver Lake owned SunGard, an IT company with a data center virtually in the same location where the Nashville Christmas Day bomb went off yesterday.
On Christmas morning, police responded to a “gunshot” call and came across a strange motorhome that was near an AT&T building near Second Avenue and Commerce Street. Police couldn’t find any evidence of a shooting, so they called the bomb squad. About 30 minutes later the motorhome exploded after reading a recorded message saying “If you hear this message, please evacuate now.”
The explosion left three people injured, damaged buildings and disrupted AT&T service in the region. The bombing appears to be intentional according to the authorities.
The globalist / deep state has the history and motive for carrying out attacks like this and should be considered the prime suspect.
“We have mobilized additional resources, including our National Disaster Recovery Team, and we are bringing in several portable cell sites to help with recovery efforts,” said Jim Greer, spokesperson for AT&T.
National File has learned that the site of the explosion was the same location as a data center owned by a company called SunGard at 200 Commerce Street.
Silver Lake, a $ 75 billion investment firm with questionable ties to China, bought SunGard in 2005, according to a press release from Blackstone.
Wayne, PA – SunGard (NYSE: SDS) today announced the completion of the acquisition of SunGard Data Systems Inc. by a consortium of private equity firms organized by Silver Lake Partners which also includes Bain Capital , The Blackstone Group, Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. LP, Providence Equity Partners and Texas Pacific Group. “
In 2015, SolarWinds was purchased by Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo for $ 4.5 billion, according to the SolarWinds website.
“AUSTIN, Texas – October 21, 2015 – SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by leading private equity technology companies. , Silver Lake Partners and Thoma Bravo, LLC. Under the terms of the deal, SolarWinds shareholders will receive $ 60.10 per share or approximately $ 4.5 billion in cash. The deal was approved by the SolarWinds Board of Directors following a comprehensive review of strategic alternatives. “
Ten years later, Silver Lake sold SunGard to Fidelity National Information Services Inc. for nearly $ 11 billion in August 2015.
Silver Lake has recently been criticized for its questionable ties to Chinese Communists, which President Donald Trump believes may be behind the SolarWinds cyberattack, as reported by National File.
SolarWinds’ ties to China are starting to make their way into public view amid news of the cyber breach that allegedly hit the company in March. SolarWinds board director Kenneth Hao “spearheaded the creation” of a $ 75 billion investment company in China, as reported by National File.
According to his biography on the Silver Lake website, Kenneth Hao “led the establishment of the company’s China and Japan offices and led Silver Lake’s investments in the Alibaba Group” from 2008 to 2011.
Silver Lake also notes that “Hao is currently a director of the boards of directors” of several companies, including SolarWinds.
Months before the SolarWinds cyberattack, Thoma Bravo bought JD Power from a mysterious Chinese company called XIO Group for $ 1.88 billion in 2019, as reported by National File.
SolarWinds Director Seth Boro, a man who was instrumental in launching the private equity firm known as Thoma Bravo, “currently sits on the boards of several software and technology services companies in which certain investment funds advised by Thoma Bravo hold an investment ”. according to his biography on the SolarWinds website.
In 2019, Thoma Bravo bought JD Power for $ 1.88 billion from XIO Group, a mysterious Chinese company based in Hong Kong.
According to the Washington Post, Thoma Bravo and Silver Lake sold hundreds of millions of dollars in SolarWinds shares just days before the SolarWinds breach was announced, raising concerns about a potential insider trading.
“Silver Lake, a Silicon Valley investor with a history of high-profile tech deals including Airbnb, Dell and Twitter, sold $ 158 million in SolarWinds shares on December 7 – six days before news of the violation does not become public. Thoma Bravo, a San Francisco-based private equity firm, also sold $ 128 million of its shares in SolarWinds on December 7.
Together, the two investment firms own 70% of SolarWinds and control six of the seats on the company’s board of directors, giving companies access to key information and subjecting their stock transactions to federal financial disclosure rules. . While the owners of SolarWinds’ connections with China certainly raise eyebrows, the SolarWinds company itself also has close ties to China. SolarWinds partnered with Mr Tech in May 2020 to expand business opportunities in China, just weeks after the company’s breach, as reported by National File.
“The partnership has been extended to” enable companies in China – in all verticals such as banking, finance, insurance, manufacturing, education and other business sectors – to solve IT challenges and to monitor, manage and secure their applications and servers. , data, infrastructure and networks in on-premises, hybrid and multicloud environments, ”according to Business Wire.
Besides Mr Tech, SolarWinds’ channel partners in China include Westcon Solutions China, Kunlan Solutions (China) Inc and Beijing KaiYao Co., Ltd., according to their website. “
Additionally, National File has confirmed that Dominion Voting Systems in fact uses at least one of SolarWinds’ products.
In Sidney Powell’s trial in Georgia, China and Iran are proven to have access to DVS servers, according to an analyst with the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, as reported by National File.
National File was able to quickly verify that Powell cited a former 305th member in the lawsuit, who said that “a former electronic intelligence analyst under the 305th Military Intelligence with experience in electronic intelligence gathering on the SAM missile system ”told him that“ the Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran ”to manipulate the election.
As America recovers from the Christmas Day bombing, the SolarWinds cyberattack, credible evidence of widespread electoral fraud, and DNI John Ratcliffe’s confirmation of foreign election interference, the many Americans have more questions only answers.
