WikiLeaks subpoena covers all 650,000 Twitter followers as well

By Dark Politricks

Having just checked my Twitter follower list it appears that I along with 636,486 other people follow the WikiLeaks account and therefore all our details will shortly be winging their way over to the modern day Stasi-esque country that currently calls itself Amerika.

At first I only understood it to be the details of the actual Twitter accounts mentioned in the subpoena that were going to be sent over e.g Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, Rop Gongrijp and Birgitta Jonsdottir but it seems that point B2 of the attachment covers all followers of these accounts as well.

Point B2 requests information related to those accounts that include:

“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”.

If you also have followed one of the twitter accounts contained within the twitter/subpoena.pdf that has been issued then you too will also have your twitter account details put on a disk and shipped to the states so that a grand jury can print the names out, stick them on a wall and then take turns throwing darts at it to see which lucky prize winner will get a chance to join Assange, Manning and the others in the dock.

I joke of course but the whole thing is already so outlandish and far fetched that I don’t put it past any of the loons currently running Amerika to try and bring a few WikiLeaks followers over to their special contrived ahem I mean convened jury to explain to it why they have chosen to publicly declare their hatred of America and everything it stands for by following WikiLeaks.

I mean WikiLeaks is such a well known terrorist organisation that they must assume any follower is also a secret member of Hamas and has Bin Laden’s cave phone number on speed dial. Why else would they care who was following the Twitter account?

The only thing I can think of is that it is an excuse to go on a massive fishing exercise and use one of those huge new NSA super computers to map out all the virtual networks and relationships between online users that a normal web scrape wouldn’t achieve. This would be done in a similar way to how they used real time credit and debit card transactions after 9.11 to map terrorist networks and they already have large computers that are perfect for the job.

The added bonus is that not only do they then obtain a nice huge digital map of online dissenters they can also confirm the email addresses and IP locations as well which will then probably start another ball rolling to ISP’s and mail hosts to obtain traffic history and email logs. Oh the possibilities are endless and its a good job we live in a free world where we can freely talk and criticise the government without fear of being monitored and tracked…..

Potentially this would be some NSA techbods wet dream come true and I am guessing some bright spark realised that the easiest way to capture identifying details of the majority of the socially conscious and war dissenting blogosphere would be to legally wangle access to one of the kingpins of the social networks which is what they have done with their requests to Facebook and Twitter.

It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if the whole list of followers is quickly uploaded to the USA’s no fly list along with any other of the myriad of lists that the US government has started keeping since 9.11. It is not a joke to say that certain powerful people in the US government seriously believe WikiLeaks and internet freedom presents a real and present danger to their long term aims and the word terrorist and domestic extremist have diverted from their original dictionary definitions a long time back.

I guess there will be a few people worried about this news, people who have never so much as got a parking ticket in their life who are now part of the biggest news story of the decade. However I doubt anyone is going to get a free orange jumpsuit just for following or be-friending WikiLeaks on Twitter or Facebook and who wants to go to America anyway? The place is fast becoming a joke!

The country famed for its constitution, equal protection under the law and traditions of free speech has entered into a new level of unintended satire in which every new DOJ statement or Grand Jury indictment related to WikiLeaks just goes to show how right George Bush was when he said the constitution was nothing more than a piece of paper.

If you think you can just pop along to Twitter and un-follow the account then you are out of luck as WikiLeaks said themselves in a tweet a few hours back:

Too late to unfollow; trick used is to demand the lists, dates and IPs of all who received our twitter messages.

And anyway computers have long memories, longer than Elephants in fact which is why if you actually gave a shit about keeping your privacy online and avoiding grand jury subpoenas for the heinous crime of following someone on Twitter you would have been a bit more savy about the details you use.

Speaking of which I have build a proxy finder script which will run locally on your PC and find currently working proxies that can then be used to surf the web with. The thing with all the free proxy lists that you find is that by the time you get to them the proxy is usually dead and its estimated that only 1% will work. Therefore this script not only goes off and finds potential proxies it tests them in real time to ensure they work. If you are interested in buying this script then drop me an email.

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?
