"Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans."


I'll take the 3 day ban, this was too monumental not to post. Reports on the_donald subreddit also suggest he is still safe but the US and UK government are trying to force the Ecuadorian embassy to extradite him.

Periscope: the_donald subreddit member is posting. He can't get inside the embassy.

Edit: They released pre-commitment codes on twitter as well:

pre-commitment 1: John Kerry 4bb96075acadc3d80b5ac872874c3037a386f4f595fe99e687439aabd0219809

pre-commitment 2: Ecuador eae5c9b064ed649ba468f0800abf8b56ae5cfe355b93b1ce90a1b92a48a9ab72

pre-commitment 3: UK FCO f33a6de5c627e3270ed3e02f62cd0c857467a780cf6123d2172d80d02a072f74

I can't say I'm surprised by the timing, but i'm more surprised they haven't come after him sooner.
All this says to me is the information wikileaks is releasing must be very damaging to HRC. If she doesn't win her career in politics is done. She'll never be able to run for elected office anywhere in the US.

I really hope the don't assassinate him though.

Well let's keep in mind that these are possibly theatrics and his internet is fine.

Either way it's probably good for Trump though as it keeps a spotlight on the DNC/HRC etc...
 
RE: Julian Assange's Internet Has Been Severed

Streisand effect plus he has a dead man switch. The Gov't should've left him alone but now they've gone and made it worst esp since #FreeJulian is trending and now everyone is free to post memes on fb re: Wikileaks to bring more attention to the issue since its a hot topic for no reason.

In this time of apparent great peril and high interest in Assange's current status (and high traffic to Wikileaks twitter) the next and latest tweet is a link to donate...

^ Dude, Assange has been living in that embassy for, what, 5 years?

He's earned the right to ask for a few donations.

Even if this is a publicity stunt, it's massively helpful for Trump's campaign. As someone else pointed out, #FreeJulian has been trending on Twitter all night. If nothing happens, it just looks like they got scared of the attention and backed off. Meanwhile thousands of people are being exposed to more of the leaks.

Enigma brother, I'm not saying the man doesn't deserve donations or shouldn't ask for them, far from it.

My point is that the whole twitter world is watching the Wikileaks feed to find out what's up with him, and no doubt the persons running Wikileaks twitter are well aware of the wild speculation and concern. Read the comments- "Is Julian ok?", "Is Julian dead", "Well what's the latest??", "Is everything ok?".. etc. But, not for the first time, they've chosen to let the speculation run and not comment- besides to ask for donations.

Same thing happened with the announcement a couple weeks ago, stayed up and watched.

I wish him well, and hope something big is revealed, and it's helpful regardless of what happens- but I'm not getting duped again.

A video of a member calling the embassy to see if he is there. He first asks if he is there, then the person on the phone says she cant discuss that and finally at the end he asks if he's still alive. Not sure on the legitimacy.

Can anyone confirm what these pre-commitment codes are for? From Gizmodo (a Gawker source, hence my question): "Essentially those unique codes are proof to anyone reading the documents in the future that their contents remain unchanged: alteration to the leaks will likewise alter those 64-character codes."

In other news, apparently Pamela Anderson stopped by the embassy to give Assange a vegan lunch:

If Assange was silently taken out, poisoned or whatnot and the Ecuadorian embassy made some sort of deal with USA to poison him or turn him over in the middle of the night, how would we find out about it? It sounds like they had some sort of contingency in place, if he is dead, hopefully he actually had some information that he was holding back.

262- What Gizmodo said is correct. This system has been used a few times by others recently.

One of the streamers was stopped by a lady asking him if he's looking for Julian Assange. The stream then abruptly ended.

The lunch was just a cover. She was there to assist in his escape, silently cutting glass with those nips.

@GlobalMan:

I understand where you're coming from, but I don't think they have any more information than has been released. It's the middle of the night and they don't seem to have direct contact with him.

Tweeting out a donation link is not an indication in either direction. They could be asking for donations because it's a publicity stunt, or they could be doing it because they have a ton of traffic and their leader's safety is at risk.

And we'll likely never know if it was a hoax anyways, as I alluded to above.

You're all ignoring the most important talking point.
