  • 2056: Looking Backward from a Trump Future

    Gun Watch ^ | 4 November, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    The four decades since 2016 have seen a breathtaking restoration of the Republic of the United States of America.  Looking back from 2056, the historians and pundits say it was inevitable. The United States had enormous energy resources, an educated and ethical workforce, a history of entrepreneurial spirit. The fruits of the digital industrial age, genome processing, and robotic development were on the edge of explosion. The resurgence back from the malaise and blame America thinking of the Obama administration was certain to happen, with a wealthy, prosperous, powerful and free America the obvious result. It wasn't that way....
  • Twitter Verifies Sarah Jeong Without Making Her Delete Racist Posts

    08/17/2018 2:59:07 PM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 21 replies
    Even though Twitter forbids racist “epithets,” “tropes,” and “other content that degrades someone,” the posts remain on the platform. In fact, Twitter specifically describes “dehumanizing language” to be against its rules — like comparing people to dogs. Twitter has stripped conservative accounts of their verification on numerous occasions, and in November, the social network stopped taking requests for account verification, meaning that Twitter has to now verify accounts selectively. Tommy Robinson, Laura Loomer were stripped of their verification amongst many others, while WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been repeatedly denied verification, despite the fact that he has over 780,000 followers...
  • Soldiers Allege Laura Poitras, Had Foreknowledge of 2004 Iraqi Attack on U.S. Troops

    The Weekly Standard ^ | June 12, 2013 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    When Edward Snowden decided he wanted to release details about the NSA's intelligence operations to the public, he reached out to Laura Poitras, a 49-year-old film maker and political activist opposed to the war on terror. As the Washington Post noted on Monday, Poitras had "the odd distinction of sharing a byline in The Washington Post and in London’s Guardian newspaper last week on two blockbuster stories." snip But perhaps it isn't such a mystery why the U.S. government might want to question Poitras if you simply crack open John R. Bruning's 2006 book, The Devil's Sandbox: With the 2nd...

  • WikiLeaks Says it will Bring Hillary Clinton Down by October 21

    09/15/2018 9:37:56 PM PDT · by bitt · 96 replies
    President Donald Trump has one campaign yet to fulfill and WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange is vowing to see that one fulfilled sooner rather later. In his words – “If Trump doesn’t take Clinton down, we will.” For almost two years, Clinton and the Deep State have been hell-bent on drumming up a ‘Trump/Russia’ collusion story that has yet to produce anything beyond made-up stories and ‘anonymous’ insiders. It seems Assange realizes time is running out for him in exile and he needs to do something to do that has evaded the President.
  • A Security Expert Tied to WikiLeaks Vanishes, and the Internet Is Abuzz

    NY Slimes ^ | 09/07/2018 | Henrik Pryser Libell
    In a remote Norwegian town north of the Arctic Circle, a cybersecurity expert with ties to WikiLeaks checked out of a hotel, dressed in khaki hiking gear and carrying heavy baggage. That was on Aug. 20. No one has reported seeing him since. The disappearance of Arjen Kamphuis, 46, has so far flummoxed a widening police investigation that has chased stray clues and false leads in Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. Norwegian police have released statements saying that they have no idea whether he was a victim of foul play, but that they “are open to all possibilities.”...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Sept. 5, 2018
    The world's largest social media companies defended their decisions not to censor primary-source document publisher WikiLeaks, telling senators Wednesday the organization has done nothing that would justify being muzzled. Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., extracted corporate explanations after calling WikiLeaks a "non-state hostile intelligence service" at an open hearing of the Senate intelligence committee. Cotton asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg why they had not censored the document depot or its editor Julian Assange, an Australian-born critic of U.S. foreign policy.

    This weekend, the WikiLeaks Twitter account claimed that cybersecurity expert Arjen Kamphuis went missing on August 20, two days before he was scheduled to fly to Amsterdam. This comes amid concerns about the security of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is about to end his six-year self-imposed confinement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Norwegian police have opened an investigation into the disappearance of Arjen Kamphuis, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's associate, who was last seen in the northern Norwegian town of Bodo on August 20. ...

    Politico ^ | 8/15/13 | JOSH GERSTEIN
    The White House dismissed the bulk of President Barack Obama’s premier panel of outside intelligence advisers earlier this year, leaving the blue-ribbon commission largely vacant as the public furor built over the National Security Agency’s widespread tracking of Americans’ telephone calls. The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board stood 14 members strong through 2012, but the White House website was recently updated to show the panel’s roster shrinking to just four people. In the past four years, the high-powered group has waded into the implications of WikiLeaks for intelligence sharing, and urged retooling of America’s spy agencies as the United States withdraws...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Aug. 20, 2018
    A congressman who doubts that Russia hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 election has been unable to speak with President Trump despite a full year attempting to broker a pardon for WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange in exchange for information disproving Russian culpability. It’s unclear why exactly the White House has kept Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., at an arm’s length, and whether the decision is an example of uncharacteristic restraint by Trump or a result of interference by deputies fearing reputational or legal hazards. Rohrabacher told the Washington Examiner he believes that fear of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation has...

    <p>For much of the last two years, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr has been the Russia investigator who is seen but rarely heard on Capitol Hill.</p> <p>In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, the North Carolina Republican opened up about the investigation that has now consumed 19 months of his life. He says it has been “frustrating as hell” and much more difficult than he originally envisioned. But he says the integrity of the investigation — and its importance to the institution of the Senate — is something he has labored to protect.</p>

    This is core 2018 insofar as (a) it’s the single most explosive Russiagate accusation ever leveled at Trump, a strong suggestion of collusion coming from someone within his inner circle, and yet (b) because it’s Omarosa, because she’s trying to sell a book, because she and Trump are suddenly locked in a nasty feud, it’s completely unbelievable. Here’s the smoking gun that the president conspired with Russia during the election! Or, here’s a reality-show clown willing to say anything on TV to damage the reality-show host she worked for! Katy Tur pressed her for specifics and naturally she offered none....

    One of Stone’s Rules is “The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” Even I may have taken exception to that rule last Friday. If you followed the news last Friday, you know that my longtime friend Kristin Davis testified before Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury, that my longtime associate and wingman Andrew Miller was held in contempt for his refusal to testify for the grand jury, and that a subpoena was dropped on Randy Credico who, despite his public denials, was the source who first told me that Wikileaks had the goods on...

    Roger Stone said Monday that he may be willing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller, but vowed he would never testify against President Trump. "There is no circumstance in which I intend to be pressured in order to testify against the president. First of all, I have nothing that I could say about him that would be negative. Secondarily, I'm just not going to do that," Stone said during an appearance on CNN's "Outfront." "I wouldn't rule out cooperating with the special counsel if I can be helpful in some area, but there's no circumstance under which I would...

    WikiLeaks is claiming that the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked its founder, Julian Assange, to testify as part of the panel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The organization posted a letter on its Twitter account dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available “for a closed door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.” A spokeswoman for Warner declined to comment on witnesses. A spokeswoman for Burr also declined to comment. Assange’s legal team is...

    The Democratic National Committee on Friday officially served its lawsuit to WikiLeaks via Twitter, employing a rare method to serve its suit to the elusive group that has thus far been unresponsive. As CBS News first reported last month, the DNC filed a motion with a federal court in Manhattan requesting permission to serve its complaint to WikiLeaks on Twitter, a platform the DNC argued the website uses regularly. The DNC filed a lawsuit in April against the Trump campaign, Russian government and WikiLeaks, alleging a massive conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor. All of the...

    Lawyers representing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday served transparency advocates WikiLeaks with a lawsuit via Twitter, accusing the site of working with the Trump campaign and Russia to swing the 2016 election in President Trump's favor. The move came Friday after CBS News reports multiple attempts by DNC lawyers to serve legal documents to WikiLeaks representatives by email were met with no response. The DNC was one of multiple Democratic organizations hacked during the 2016 election, with the resulting emails and documents posted on WikiLeaks. The U.S. intelligence community believes Russia was behind the breach, with the intention...

    The hacking collective Anonymous is pledging to expose the people behind the "QAnon" conspiracy theory. The anarchist hacking group slammed the QAnon conspiracy as potentially dangerous and driven by a “brainless political agenda” in a video posted Sunday to what is widely considered the most reliable Anonymous Twitter account. “We will not see idly by while you take advantage of the misinformed and poorly educated,” the group said in the video, which was posted with the hashtags "#OpQ" and "#OpQAnon." The video depicts various figures with the Anonymous masks acting out certain aspects of the QAnon conspiracy over a constant...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Aug. 1, 2018
    Roger Stone, the Trump adviser whose claimed contact with WikiLeaks put him in the crosshairs of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, says President Trump should pardon WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange to defend press freedom. “Journalists everywhere should be disturbed if Assange is kidnapped and put on trial. It is a blow to independent journalism and a free press,” Stone told the Washington Examiner, as Assange's future becomes increasingly uncertain. In justifying a pardon for Assange, Stone cites a conclusion by Obama administration officials that prosecuting Assange for publishing classified information could set a precedent allowing for prosecution of journalists...
