Wikileaks Vows Weekly Disclosures Between Now and November Election

[ Ed.  note – I don’t know what Wikileaks has in store. Maybe an “October surprise,” as some people are obviously hoping for. Of course the thought occurs that there may be more than one October surprise heading our way, and it’s entirely possible the buffoons at the State Department, along with the buffoonish secretary of defense, are planning October surprises of their own. Something, at any rate, to keep in mind as you read the article below. I’m also tossing in an interesting commentary on Hillary’s 2009 coup in Honduras, which hasn’t gotten quite as much attention as her destruction of Libya two years later. ]

October Tease: Trump Supporters Left Sleepless and Exasperated

21st Century Wire

This was one of the most eagerly anticipated ‘cyber’ events ever, but today’s ‘October surprise’ turned out to be an October tease.

On Monday, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange warmed up the international community, and more importantly Trump supporters, when he hinted, “If we are going to make a major publication about the U.S., we wouldn’t do it at 3 a.m [Tues].”

As it turns out, after much hope and lots of hype, Trump supporters couldn’t even get to first base with Assange this morning…

Originally, Assange was scheduled to deliver his announcement Vatican-style from the balcony of his residence inside the Ecuadoran embassy in London, but due to reports of a death threat, a decision was made to change venues, opting instead for a video link from the embassy to Berlin where a Wikileaks 10 year anniversary event was being hosted by his colleague Sarah Harrison.

Over in America, the Trump camp was buzzing with the promise that Hillary Clinton would be mortally wounded by this morning’s big reveal. Trump’s online again-offline again surrogate-cum-secret agent, Roger Stone, was over the moon with joy, and even tweeted:

Trump backer Alex Jones insisted that the Wikileaks document dump would be “historic” and that “the Clintons will be devastated!” and even went so far as to promote a live broadcast special on his channel Infowars.com, promising to unveil the ‘devastating’ news.

In the end, nothing happened. There were no documents revealed.

In the end, nothing happened. There were no documents revealed.

It is still possible that the major information release previously promised by Assange is imminent, and Assange did hint at this in the wake of the DNC leaks which led to the resignation of chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and others over systemic Democratic Party corruption. In his statement, he reiterated the incredible workload that he and his team have in vetting all the information in their possession before it’s released. Wikileaks also has to be careful in order to preserve the integrity of the leaks, but also to organize and catalogue the information for press and public consumption.

Assange has since indicated that waves of documents will now be revealed in a time-released fashion, with some items dumped each week, right up until the US election on November 8th.

When asked during his Berlin videocast about what the impact might be based on his knowledge of the information, Assange simply relied:

“We think they’re significant.”

  1. Early voting has already begun in some states. If Wikileaks really has some new devastating material to release related to Hillary, it shouldn’t be delayed.

  2. I used to support Julian ,but after what he did about the Hillary releases I can no longer send money or stand behind him .If he really has something on her release it,if not leave her out of it.
