Dear Mrs McCormick, you can take your subpoena and stick it where the sun don’t shine (or words to that effect)

Taken from

Mrs. McCormick,

The fine people of WikiLeaks alerted me on Twitter that the subpoena you sent to Twitter, Inc. demanding all kinds of records, in fact, includes me too.

Under B 2, the document requests “all records and other information (…) including non-content information associated with the contents of any communication or file stored by or for the account(s), such as the source and destination email addresses and IP addresses”.

I hereby confess that I am one of the 635,561 followers of WikiLeaks on Twitter. I also follow Gabriel Garcia Marquéz and someone called PJCrowley. Just saying. To make things worse, I also signed a petition together with over a hundred colleagues in support of WikiLeaks – I think they’re doing a great job – and against the kind of thing your department is doing.

I’m also one of the 1,516,269 people who “like” WikiLeaks on FaceBook – I’m assuming that they received a similar subpoena. I also like the “Diving Wrecks and Reefs” page, the “Latin American Art” page, the “NO A LA REELECCION DEL RECTOR GUSTAVO GARCIA DE PAREDES” page as well as the “Fossil Sharks of Panama” page. Oh, I was also the first journalist in Panama to report on the leaked cables from your embassy. Juicy stuff! I thought I might as well make a full confession here and I don’t want to withhold vital information.

So, now that you have my confession, what are you gonna do with this information, if I may ask; put us all on a no-fly list? Guantanamo? Or some Kuwait torture chamber? A cease and desist order against over 2 million people to stop them from liking or following WikiLeaks?

Anyway, maybe I should thank the US Department of Justice for including me in this “criminal investigation”. It’s not every day that one gets to be part of history, even if it is a flawed attempt at damage control and political pandering.

Next time you need anything, feel free to ask,

Yours truly,

Okke Ornstein

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! 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 is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

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!
