Wikileaks Honduras: State Dept. Busted on Support of Coup
According to a leaked cable, by July 24, 2009, the U.S. government was totally clear about the basic facts of what took place in Honduras on June 28, 2009. But a month after the cable was sent, the State Department was publicly pretending that the facts were murky and needed further study. Why did the State Department drag its feet, pretending that facts which it knew to be clear-cut were murky? Why didn’t the State Department speak publicly after July 24 with the same moral clarity as the July 24 cable from the Embassy in Honduras? Had it done so, history might have been different.

Why this matters now: because major US media refuse to report evidence of US “involvement” in coups in Venezuela, Haiti, and Honduras, or acknowledge that it exists, and that’s why we’re trying to help as many Americans as possible see the Oliver Stone documentary, “South of the Border.”

  1. Julian Assange ‘will be given asylum in Ecuador’

    Posted: August 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

    The WikiLeaks founder took refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London on June 19 after losing his appeal against extradition to Sweden where he is wanted over allegations of sexual offences.

    After formally applying for political asylum, a decision was due this week. In the meantime, a warrant for his arrest for breaching his bail conditions means he is likely to be rearrested if he steps outside the embassy.

    According to an official close to the government, Correa has already decided to approve Assange’s application.

    “Ecuador will grant asylum to Julian Assange,” a source told the Guardian.

    Resistance From a Cage: Julian Assange Speaks to Norwegian Journalist Eirik Vold
    Friday, 01 March 2013 00:00 By Eirik Vold, Truthout | Interview

    This is an exclusive English translation of an interview published Saturday, February 16, 2013, in the Norwegian news outlet Dagens Næringsliv.

    Quoting the srticle:
    “A cryptographer friend? Does that sound a bit like having a “hobbit friend” to you? Then let this be a warning: If you are not used to a modern Internet vocabulary, the story of Julian Assange is full of characters that may seem like they are out of a science fiction novel: cryptographer friends with vital secrets looking over their shoulders in order not to get caught; eccentric professors about to conjure up a quantum mechanics machine with the power to destroy all of cyberspace if it falls into the wrong hands; tiny torrent files, floating around in abstract space, unintelligible and meaningless when separated, but powerful information packages able to knock down governments if sewn together the right way and delivered to the masses. And they are all real and alive. Just as real and alive as the Swedish prosecutors and their extradition request for Assange or the CIA agents on a mission to stop WikiLeaks from leaking – as real as the heavy wooden door I just opened on my way into the Ecuadorian embassy in London and then shut carefully behind me. Aside from the will of a controversial South American president, that door is now the only barrier between Julian Assange and me on the inside, and the police officer from Scotland Yard (London Metropolitan Police) waiting patiently on the outside with handcuffs, a gun and orders to arrest and deport my interviewee.” -snip-

    “Assange explained how US foreign policy was exposed as violent and dishonest, how the revelations made the ground shake beneath corrupt and oppressive regimes and corporations all over the world and stimulated revolutions, as in Tunisia, and reformist movements in Ghana and Kenya.” – snip-

    “”The left? The left is still stuck in the 1960s,” Assange states drily. Ideologically, he is closer to the free market, even though he says markets always tend to evolve into monopolies unless they are forced to work freely.” -snip-

    “”In the same way that the ability to solve physical problems is limited by our understanding of physical laws, the ability to solve societal problems depends on our insight into human institutions. All political theories on how the world is and how it should be are built on such an understanding.” -snip-

    “Media organizations start off small. But when they grow, they are invited to sit down with the powerful. Then they become part of the same powerful elite that they are supposed to be critically monitoring,” he explains.

    “It’s shameful,” Assange says, “that a handful of activists in WikiLeaks have published more secret documents than the entire establishment press, with all its billion-dollar budgets, technical competence and human resources, all together.”

    We Are Bradley Manning
    by Chris Hedges

    I was in a military courtroom at Fort Meade in Maryland on Thursday as Pfc. Bradley Manning admitted giving classified government documents to WikiLeaks. The hundreds of thousands of leaked documents exposed U.S. war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as government misconduct. A statement that Manning made to the court was a powerful and moving treatise on the importance of placing conscience above personal safety, the necessity of sacrificing careers and liberty for the public good, and the moral imperative of carrying out acts of defiance. Manning will surely pay with many years—perhaps his entire life—in prison. But we too will pay. The war against Bradley Manning is a war against us all.

    Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)
    EFF and Other Groups to NSA: Are You Spying on Our TPP Work?
    “The NSA’s purpose for surveillance extends way beyond the purpose of fighting terrorism, including any “information with respect to a foreign power…that relates to…the conduct of the foreign affairs of the United States.” Since negotiations of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) (see our analysis of the new leaked text) and the EU-US trade agreement, the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (called T-TIP for short), are held in secret, it’s even more unsettling that our private communications may have been intercepted and handed over to an executive agency that has been enthusiastic about allowing corporations to dictate its core policy agenda. We and our colleagues co-operate internationally to fight against opaque policy-making processes to ensure that all Internet users’ rights are respected and upheld in these powerful bodies of international law. If the NSA is truly monitoring all of our electronic communications, the agency could be using that information to sabotage our work in this policy space.” snip
    “Digital rights organization, La Quadrature du Net, published a leaked document this summer that gave us a glimpse of negotiators’ plan to regulate the Internet and undermine users’ right to privacy”

    WikiLeaks Wins Case Against Visa: Ordered to pay ‘$204k Per Month if Blockade not Lifted’

    By RT

    April 24, 2013 “Information Clearing House” – Iceland’s Supreme Court has ruled that Valitor (formerly Visa Iceland) must pay WikiLeaks $204,900 per month or $2,494,604 per year in fines if it continues to blockade the whistle-blowing site.

    The court upheld the decision that Valitor had unlawfully terminated its contract with WikiLeaks’ donation processor, DataCell.

    “Today’s decision marked the most important victory to date against the unlawful and arbitrary economic blockade erected by US companies against WikiLeaks,” the organization’s press release stated.

    The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control

      At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US, says whistleblower William Binney – that’s a ‘totalitarian mentality’
      ““The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control”, Binney said, “but I’m a little optimistic with some recent Supreme Court decisions, such as law enforcement mostly now needing a warrant before searching a smartphone.””

    U.S., European authorities investigate possible new leaker: sources
    LONDON | By Mark Hosenball

    U.S. and European security authorities are investigating whether a previously unknown leaker provided sensitive intelligence documents to WikiLeaks about alleged U.S. spying on French politicians, according to sources familiar with the matter.

    WikiLeaks, the transparency lobby group, on Tuesday released purportedly classified National Security Agency (NSA) documents alleging that the U.S. eavesdropping agency conducted surveillance on three successive French presidents – Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and incumbent François Hollande.

  10. Oh me too. I immediately thought, “YAY!! We have another hero!” I don’t like my own Congressmen as much as I like Manning, Assange, and Snowden.

    THE PEOPLE hate secrecy. Why on earth are the wishes of THE PEOPLE defied?

    Guess he is still alive.

    “In June 2011, Obama administration implied to Iceland’s authorities they had knowledge of hackers wanting to destroy software systems in the country, and offered help, then-Interior Minister Ogmundur Jonasson, said in an interview with the Katoikos publication.”
    “However, Jonasson said he instantly became “suspicious” of the US good intentions, “well aware that a helping hand might easily become a manipulating hand.”

    Reuters / Toru Hanai ​WikiLeaks still under investigation, but not its supporters, says DOJ

    Later in the summer 2011, the US “sent a planeload of FBI agents to Iceland seeking our cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks,” Jonasson said.”

    You cannot know how much I disrespect Obama. I never respected him. But I am deeper into disrespect. What a total wiener the Obama chump is!! I mean, he lies, he manipulates. He thinks the american people are STUPID. I don’t feel stupid. In fact, Obama never duped me once. I never believed in him, was always suspicious of him. I had no hope in him whatsoever, and I am Democrat (but not for long). NOw who is stupid?! HE is.

    “A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first in a series of leaks the whistleblower organization has dubbed ‘Vault 7.’ WikiLeaks said that ‘Year Zero’ revealed details of the CIA’s “global covert hacking program,” including “weaponized exploits” used against company products including “Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.””

    “Among the more notable disclosures which, if confirmed, “would rock the technology world”, the CIA had managed to bypass encryption on popular phone and messaging services such as Signal, WhatsApp and Telegram. According to the statement from WikiLeaks, government hackers can penetrate Android phones and collect “audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.””

    “Another profound revelation is that the CIA can engage in “false flag” cyberattacks which portray Russia as the assailant. Discussing the CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group, Wikileaks’ source notes that it “collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.”

    “As Kim Dotcom summarizes this finding, “CIA uses techniques to make cyber attacks look like they originated from enemy state. It turns DNC/Russia hack allegation by CIA into a JOKE””

    “As Kim Dotcom chimed in on Twitter, “CIA turns Smart TVs, iPhones, gaming consoles and many other consumer gadgets into open microphones” and added ” CIA turned every Microsoft Windows PC in the world into spyware. Can activate backdoors on demand, including via Windows update””

    “Dotcom also added that “Obama accused Russia of cyberattacks while his CIA turned all internet enabled consumer electronics in Russia into listening devices. Wow!””

    Sure puts a new light on a few current issues, doesn’t it?

  16. I want to relate here again three experiences I had during Obama’s first presidential campaign. He kept telling us how we had a voice. So I wondered, and kept wondering, how he hears our “voice”. So I called his campaign headquarters in Chicago. On all three occasions that I called, once I got someone who was said to hear my voice, this person collected all my personal data stopping just short of my bra size. They never once tried to listen to me, to let me share my voice, where I was protesting the use of Brezinski’s advice. From then on, I knew that he was all about data collecting and that he had no interest whatsoever in what I had to say, what anyone had to say. So in essence, when he lied to this country, he wasn’t lying to me because I didn’t believe him. He lied to those who followed him. He lied to those who believed in him. He didn’t lie to me because I already did not believe what he had to say.

    Obama’s surveillence state tripled in cost from Bush’s spy state. This is not about party. This is about the New World Order. The two political parties are all about the New World Order, and not about political ideologies. Those ideologies are merely smoke-screen.

    I am liking Trump more and more.

    My question is this: can my smart TV be used in the above manner if I refused to put fiber optic cable in this house? I still use co-ax (SP?) in this house, tho the cable company really did try to insist I change it, … multiple times. I sited that replacing it would compromise the integrity of the house. Now I have placed surge-protector power strips past the big surge protector so that i can reach down and turn off the power to the TVs and to the computer. They have to be able to power the tvs and computer from outside this house to be able to spy. I know this can be done with transistors, the wireless power transference. But I don’t think there are any transistors in this house and certainly not in my digital appliances.

  17. You think that Obama’s hacking is out of character? NOT!!

    Want me to continue to look at all those people who say Obama hacked them? Surely not.

    Wikileaks founder Julian Assange reminded us in a tweet that former President Obama had a real penchant for wire tapping and/or hacking conversations of world leaders, both “rivals” and “friends”:
