Did Anonymous Take Down Amazon?

Late Sunday the corporate media was abuzz with headlines making the case that the internet hacker group Anonymous was responsible for the takedown of Amazon in the UK and Europe.

Shadowy hackers taking down retail sites at Christmas. It’s a propaganda victory for those who propose government regulation of the internet.

“Anonymous, a group of online hacktivists who support the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, has claimed responsibility for a series of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks in the past week,” reported The Press Association.

“The Anonymous group was alleged to have tried, but failed, before to attack the giant online retailer in retaliation for Amazon removing the controversial WikiLeaks material from its servers. The group later issued a statement saying it did not want to bring down the store in the Christmas period,” wrote the Wall Street Journal.

Last week Russia Today interviewed a man going by the name “Anon” who claimed the group was opposed to attacking the online retailer. Anon said attacking Amazon was “too much” and the group decided not to do it. “It didn’t fail, we just decided not to attack them” said Anon.

Did Anonymous change its mind over the last two days?

Add to the feeding frenzy the prospect of Anonymous attacking the Electronic Freedom Foundation, at least according to comments posted to Twitter. From WebHostDirctory on December 10:

Considering Wikileaks and its defenders are supposed advocates of free thought and speech they seem quick off the mark to condemn the people who speak against them. A quick scroll down the Op_Payback Twitter will show you what I mean. They describe ‘ColdBlood’ (the Anonymous spokesperson who O:P have denied associations with) as a ‘raging f**king faggot’, British PM David Cameron as an ‘ass hole’ and tweet that “@DAVELEGG SUCKS C**K”. Hardly the finesse of a political movement trying to be taken seriously.

After all the screaming headlines about some ill-defined attack on Amazon, the Journal wrote the following late this evening:

There was no credible evidence that the group did hit the sites, but it certainly appears that and did have some sort of temporary problem. Watchmouse data appears to confirm both the British and German sites had a blip. Unconfirmed reports said the problem was felt across other European sites including .fr, .at and .it.

Servers, especially retail servers around Christmas, experience “blips” and outages routinely. Once again, the corporate media has sensationalized a story in order to push forward a larger agenda.

Over at the crown jewel of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, the Washington Post, an op-eder has drawn up sides in the so-called “Long War” as envisioned by the neocons of the Bush era.

“The latest fighters on one side are Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, and the media-dubbed “hacker army” that has risen in his defense in the past week, staging coordinated attacks on government and corporate institutions that have stood in his way,” writes Tim Hwang.

The global elite announced their designs on the internet through Jay Rockefeller. The supposed representative of the people of West Virginia said a few months ago that we’d be better off if the internet was never invented. Rockefeller is working with both Democrats and Republicans to reinvent the internet and render it useless as an alternative news source. The FCC is helping them in the effort.

Officialdom is working feverishly to pass legislation to regulate the internet. Anonymous hackers pestering credit card companies with more or less futile denial of service attacks make selling the task to a gullible public easier. If we can believe establishment polls, the American people think Wikileaks should be prosecuted.

“Just as automobiles cannot be sold or operated on public highways without meeting certain minimum safety standards, we also need minimum Internet and cybersecurity safety standards for our information superhighway,” said Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, D-Md., from a Maryland fusion center. Cardin introduced the Internet and Cybersecurity Safety Standards Act. The law would require the federal government and industry to collaborate and develop minimum internet standards for users of computers and other devices that connect to the Internet, according to The New New Internet.

Rogue hackers taking down cherished retail sites in the last two weeks before Christmas is an orchestrated event. The people who have stolen our government will continue to portray the internet as lawless frontier rife with hackers, unscrupulous whistleblowers, and jihadi terrorists until they pass some sort of legislation that strangles and neuters the medium.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
