Wikileaks Spokesman: Only Way To Stop Whistleblowers Is To Shut Down The Web

Intelligence experts warn Assange could be taken out by Mossad, other “friendly” security agencies

Wikileaks Spokesman: Only Way To Stop Whistleblowers Is To Shut Down The Web 081210assange

A spokesman for Wikileaks has told the media that the website continues to function as normal without it’s founder Julian Assange, and that the only way it could be stopped is for the entire internet to be shut down.

In an interview with ABC News, Wikileaks’ spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson noted that Wikileaks is still on track with a prearranged schedule of releasing information.

Hrafnsson said that Wikileaks remains active despite the detention of Assange, the cutting of access to funds and donations and the continuing denial of service attacks, presumably all carried out at the behest of the US government.

“It is not derailing us in any way,” said Hrafnsson, adding that a group of five to six people is running Wikileaks’ operations in Assange’s absence.

The website has 750 mirror sites all over the world, and has threatened a huge classified information dump if attempts to it shut down are carried through.

The aggressive action taken against wikileaks also threatens to spur widespread backlash in cyberspace and beyond.

“This is a turning tide and starting a trend that you can’t really stop unless you want to shut down the Internet.” Hrafnsson told ABC.

Today we also learned that Sen. Joe Lieberman intends to push for investigation of media outlets that reported on the WikiLeaks cables, and possibly even prosecution, a move that would constitute a chilling attack on the first amendment.

“We are getting seriously close to censorship in the U.S., and that must surely go against the fundamental values the country is based upon,” Wikileaks spokesman Hrafnsson added.

Meanwhile, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern told Russia Today that he believes Assange’s life is in danger:

“From the people with power’s perspective, what they want to do is intimidate people.” McGovern said.

“What they want to do is say that even though we have no evidence against this fellow, even though it’s clearly a setup, we’re going to go after him and we’re going to make sure that every newspaper in the world, when it mentions Julian Assange, it will mention also the word ‘rapist’. It’s a matter of intimidating others in an effort to prevent further disclosures, but the cat is out of the bag.”

“If you look at the statements coming out of the department of defense and also the department of justice, you have very implicit threats. They say we’ll try to do this the right way, but there are other ways, everything is on the table. That’s the same thing the Attorney General said, there are other ways we can get at this. I suppose what he means is other ways than legal ways.”

“So yes, I am very afraid, I think that Julian Assange is in danger, personal danger, personal safety. And it wouldn’t have to be the CIA, it could be some of these “friendly” intelligence services. Mossad comes immediately to mind, who are specialists in targeted assassinations.”

In the light of the threat Assange faces, it is likely that he turned himself in to the British police, not only in order to attempt to clear his name, but considering that he may be safer under custody and under more media scrutiny than effectively staying hidden away.

Assange recently told Spanish media that he has “had hundreds of specific death threats from US military militants” warning that those close to him could be murdered in an attempt to silence him. “Recently the situation has changed, with these threats now extending out [to] our lawyers and my children,” he said.

Former NSA analyst Wayne Madsen added that Assange was likely used as a pawn by the US government as a way to draw attention to the issue of cyber defense and general internet freedoms, but could now have “outlived his usefulness”.

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.

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?
