Wikileaks Provides Status Update On Julian Assange And The US Election

Over the past week concerns mounted that in the aftermath of the surprising decision by Ecuador to cut Julian Assange’s internet connection during the US election period (under pressure from John Kerry), that not all might be well with the Wikileaks founder, about whom Hillary Clinton allegedly jokingly asked whether he can be droned. Concerned speculation about the Ecuadorian embassy exile had risen to such an degree, that overnight Wikileaks announced it would provide a state update on Assange’s current status. It did so moments ago on twitter when the WikiLeaks Editorial Board issued the following statement on the status of Julian Assange, Ecuador and the US election.


The contents of the statement:

On Tuesday, the government of Ecuador issued a statement saying that it had decided to not permit Mr. Assange to use the government of Ecuador’s internet connection during the US election citing its policy of “non interference.”


Ecuador’s statement also clarified that it does not seek to interfere with WikiLeaks journalistic work and that it would continue to protect Mr. Assange’s asylum rights.


Mr. Assange has asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the United Nations has ruled he has been unlawfully deprived of liberty by the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of Sweden for the last six years. He has not been charged.


It is the government of Ecuador’s prerogative to decide how to best guard against the misinterpretation of its policies by media groups or states whilst ensuring that it protects Mr. Assange’s human rights.


WikiLeaks is a global, high volume publisher that publishes on average one million documents and associated analyses a year.


WikiLeaks publishes its journalistic work from large data centers based in France, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway, among others. Most WikiLeaks staff and lawyers reside in the EU or the US and have not been disrupted.


WikiLeaks has never published from jurisdiction of Ecuador and has no plans to do so. Similarly Mr. Assange does not transmit US election related documents from the embassy.


WikiLeaks is entirely funded by its readers, book and film sales. Its publications are the result of its significant investigative and technological capacities.


WikiLeaks has a perfect, decade long record for publishing only true documents. It has many thousands of sources but does not engage in collaborations with states.


Mr. Assange has not endorsed any candidate although he was happy to speak at the Green’s convention due to Dr. Jill Stein’s position whistleblowers, peace and war.

Reading between the lines, it appears that Assange is fine, if only for the time being.

Astronomers Capture 234 Signals From Space They Say Could Be Extraterrestrial – We Are Not Alone

new study has identified 234 stars, out of a sample of 2.5 million, that display an odd pulsing signal.

The two astronomers who conducted the study utilized data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey for their findings, and reported that the pulsing is much like what a signal from an intelligent alien race would look like if they were attempting to make contact. 

The astronomers, as well as outside experts, have raised speculations that there is a possibility aliens might be involved, and due to the lack of concrete answers regarding the strange behaviour, it is a realization that ought to be considered.

For their findings, the astronomers, Ermanno Borra and Eric Trottier from Laval University in Canada, looked at 2.5 million stars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) project. Their study, published in the journal Solar and Stellar Astrophysics, explains that they believe the signals recorded could be aliens attempting to make contact with Earth. Their conclusion came as result of a prior study conducted by Borra that envisioned the shape of an extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) signal. The 234 signals recently discovered are an exact match to this very shape.

Only 234 out of 2.5 million stars in our sun’s spectrum giving off this signal reveal a match with the prior ETI hypothesis. And while the astronomers suggest the possibility of alien communication, it’s just merely one of the many possibilities that they believe could be the cause, including “rotational transitions in molecules” or “rapid pulsations.”

The authors urge that this isn’t the discovery we’ve been needing to confirm that we are not alone in the universe, however. They admit more work is required in order to even further suggest this theory. They have also taken into consideration the doubtful situation that the signals are the result of highly strange chemical compositions in a small amount of galactic halo stars.

Scientific and technological explorations program Breakthrough Listen Initiative, which has Stephen Hawking and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on its board, has revealed plans to expand on the study’s findings, announcing that more proof from an outside source is required to prove the claims to be true.

In a statement the group said, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence,” and that “It is too early to unequivocally attribute these purported signals to the activities of extraterrestrial civilizations.”

They additionally state that “Internationally agreed-upon protocols for searches for evidence of advanced life beyond Earth (SETI) require candidates to be confirmed by independent groups using their own telescopes, and for all natural explanations to be exhausted before invoking extraterrestrial agents as an explanation,” they concluded.

A Reminder From Collective Evolution – We Are Not Alone

There is already compelling evidence suggesting that we are not alone, and that our planet has been and is being visited by  extraterrestrial intelligence.

We have been publishing articles on the topic for a number of years, to learn more about it, you can visit the exopolitics section of our website here.

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The Bigger Picture

Obviously this topic brings in a hose of questions, from science to religion and more. Hopefully it’s not used as another scare tactic, the same way that false flag terrorism is used.

It’s hard to think that it’s a coincidence that most of this (UFO/ET) hype started around the time we began testing nuclear weapons. One thing is for certain, our planet is in dire need of our attention, and perhaps the whole message of ‘looking out there’ is to look a little deeper at ourselves, and into ourselves?

What do you think?

How the FBI may soon use internet meltdowns like Friday’s as an excuse to hack YOUR devices

Debates about internet security and the limits of state power just got a lot more interesting. Unless you don’t use the internet, you likely know that on Friday a number of major websites were down for hours. These sites were victims of a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack targeting a DNS company called Dyn. The attack targeted not the temporarily blocked websites themselves (like Twitter and the New York Times), but rather the service (the DNS) that facilitates translations between human to computer language and allows users to connect to websites. It wasn’t that was down, per se, but rather that people typing into their web browsers couldn’t find the site. The attack worked by infecting more than ten million internet connected devices like surveillance cameras with a virus called Marai—what’s known as a ‘botnet’—and using those devices to send millions of requests to Dyn’s servers, until the system overloaded and buckled.

Why All The Yawning Over The Yuan?

Authored by Mark St.Cyr,

When it comes to China all the main stream media will ever cover is something in regards to a “hot topic of the day” brought about by either a political discourse, or some celebratory exhibition being observed within its boundaries. When it comes to trade, or business topics, they’ve pretty much abandoned them in total, leaving that realm for the “business/financial” outlets.

So it’s no wonder that when it comes to trade, or monetary issues most haven’t a clue. However, one would think when it came to the #1 financial headline generator that had the ability to send markets plunging reminiscent of a “Black Monday” causing global financial panic worldwide, and triggering (the first time in history) a tripping of all three circuit breakers on the U.S.’s major futures markets, while simultaneously causing the Federal Reserve for the first time in its history to openly state “international developments” as a root cause and catalyst to postpone a monetary decision that is supposedly U.S. centric only. The business/financial media would be all over it. Yet? (insert crickets here)

What is that #1 generator you might ask? Hint: The Yuan.


Except for places like Zero Hedge™ and a few others. When it comes to anything about China’s latest currency devaluation (whether by design or not) one would think there was a media blackout on the subject. I find that strange only for this reason: If you remember the day you woke up in August of last year thinking “Here we go again!” Where some markets had plunged over 1000 points bringing back all the fears of 2007/08. The root cause of that was: the Yuan, and its sudden devaluation.

Only after what seemed (and jawboned) like stabilization (and a note to Jim Cramer from Tim Cook on China implying “nothing to see here, move along” added in for extra measure) did the markets bounce back off the lows to then resume their monetary policy captured antics.

So with that all said for context, the question must be asked: Were you aware that the Yuan tumbled to lows not seen in 6 years? Remember – in August of 2015 the Yuan went to a level that sent markets roiling globally. We’re now well under (or above depending how you measure) that level, and falling further.


Do you think with what you now know that that should be a front-page headline across at least one major financial/business main stream media publication? I know I do.

Or, is that now sooooo 2015? I’m sorry, but this is not something trivial. And if you’re in business, or of the entrepreneurial mindset – not paying attention to this matter is not an option. This is where out-of-the-blue type scenarios with tremendous repercussions such as what happened in August of last year originate, then germinate. If you want proof – just think back to that August so many would like to forget.

Now some will think “Maybe there’s no concern because the politburo has it under control?” It’s a fair response, but there’s a problem inherent with the answer, or answers.

First: If the Chinese are doing it in a “controlled” type manner, it reeks of “currency manipulation” tactics for others (think U.S. presidential politics as of today) to latch onto and build support, as well as strengthen a case for retaliation. i.e., placing tariffs, etc, etc.

If you think about it from the Chinese perspective: that would mean you were openly, and intentionally goading as to fuel some version of a trade, or currency war. When you come at it using that thought process; it just doesn’t make sense. Both from a tactical standpoint, as well as political. Hence lies what maybe even a more troubling scenario. e.g., They’ve lost control.

The only other reason more troubling than the first – is the second. For it is here where things become quite precarious, as I’ve stated many times: “The currency markets are where you must keep your eyes and ears affixed. It’s where the real games are played and won.” And losing control of one’s currency has implications for all others, both warranted, as well as unintended. And it seems this latter scenario might be more on point than the former.

In just a little more than a month ago HIBOR (Honk Kong’s overnight CNH funding rates) exploded to their highest levels since the beginning of the year. The reasoning behind this speculated by many was in direct relation to the oncoming of holidays where liquidity can become scarce. It’s a valid point. However, there was another reason just as compelling with far more onerous tones which many failed to connect the dots to. Here’s how Zero Hedge explained it. To wit:

“However, the most likely explanation is that in order to force Yuan shorts to capitulate as 6.70 remains just barely within reach, the PBOC is simply continuing to squeeze the yuan shorts and raising the cost of shorting yuan, as explained last week.


Ultimately, the PBoC weakened its yuan fix by 169 pips to 6.6895 versus yesterday’s 6.6726, even as many were expecting the USDCNY to finally breach the 6.70 resistance level, the defense of which may have explained today’s aggressive spike in HIBOR tightening.”

Less than a week later the above was proved out correct when the afore-mentioned HIBOR surge took place. And once again, this is where that “second” answer I alluded to possibly being more of the issue that the “first” brings with it the real concern.

It would appear that China has been actively pursuing a currency strategy to keep sellers (i.e., shorts) at bay by any means available – no matter how dramatic. They have introduced measures which have exploded HIBOR nearly 200% in overnight trading scare tactics as to either punish, or decimate any bearish bets against anyone currently holding, and better yet, even thinking about placing on the Yuan.

The “magical” level implied by the politburo, which they seemed to be telegraphing in no uncertain terms, was at or about 6.70 (USD/CNH.) They’ve held this level, or manipulated aggressive tactical repercussions to ensure a stability at this level since that fateful exhibition in last August when it was evident control was slipping at best, lost at worst.

Since then they’ve shown blatant disregard as to hide their involvement if it meant holding that level through their inclusion into the SDR (Special Drawing Rights basket of currencies,) as well as ahead, during, and following a G-20 meeting. Holding that 6.70 line-in-the-sand has been assumed to be paramount. Until now….

As of this writing the current level is 6.775 and rising. At first glance that number might not look like much. But in currency markets, (especially where leverage is used in multiples that can bankrupt nations let alone “traders” in one fell swoop) it’s very concerning. For it’s far above what China has demonstrated as “acceptable” and could cause retaliatory measures (again out-of-the-blue) by the politburo that have rippling effects throughout the entire currency spectrum.

Which brings us back to those two troubling questions and answers: Are we on, or about, to see a massive currency move by China as to defend its currency against the shorts? Or, has China lost control and we are on the verge of a massive devaluation with impending monetary and trade ramifications to be felt throughout the global markets?

There is a “third” option, but I’m sorry to say – it’s worse that either the above. And that is, much like I’ve stated previous about “weaponizing the Fed” could cause intended distresses via the monetary channel.

China may have decided to strike first, not by intervening, rather, by something more innocuous, but just as devastating: By standing on the sidelines.

I’m afraid we shall find out – much sooner than later.

A Nation Of Immigrants?

A new billboard off interstate 35 is causing a lot of dispute among Austin's citizens. As CBS Austin reports, the advertisement hints undocumented immigrants should join the dating site to avoid deportation.

The sign reads, "Undocumented Immigrant? Before You Get Deported, Get a Sugar Daddy,” and it is just off highway I-35 near Frontage Road.

Jacob Webster, the online's site CMO says he decided to run the ad “in response to Donald Trump's promise to deport all 11 million of the nation’s undocumented immigrants.”

“ skews heavily towards Hispanic women, with that demo making up over 31% of all the females on our site nationally and over 53% in Austin,” said Webster.

The company launched back in 2009, and now has about 3.9 million members in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia.

Even though did not mean the billboard to seem racist, many are questioning the provocative message.

The World is Waking Up and it’s Magic to Watch

Phillip J. Watt, Contributor
Waking Times

It’s inspiring to witness many of the earth’s people, especially in the Western world, becoming aware of the deep corruption in our social system, particularly because society is building its innate capacity to actually do something about it.

More and more people now understand that we are ruled via a corporatocracy where the money supply, banking, governmental policy and other vital public infrastructure has been hijacked by the oligarchs and the corporate elite. In addition, public discourse and the official narratives are dictated by the corporate media who are owned by the same people who control macro public policy via their political puppets, as well as the unprecedented wealth they have at their disposal.

Their ultimate agenda is of course ultimate power, which is dressed up in a pretty dress of “let’s save the planet!”. Of course the degradation of our natural systems needs a fresh approach, yet their covert game to win a planetary control-system has been brilliantly exposed for the world to see.

In stride, the people are fighting back in both explicit and subtle ways. Some examples include:

  • Independent media has exploded, where more people now get their news from it compared to the propagandized mainstream press;
  • The information which exposes the lies of the ‘programmed beliefs’ is increasingly circulated by an awakening populace;
  • Global and local action groups are forming to reverse the sellout of our system;
  • Greater numbers of people are growing or sourcing organic, chemical-free food and are personally filtering any contaminants out of their water supply;
  • Parents are home-schooling their children in greater numbers, or at least giving them more holistic and healthy information as their core education;
  • Conversations of substance are increasingly occurring at pubs, supermarkets and community events, making it harder for the sleeping masses not to face the uncomfortable truths about our sick system; and
  • Individuals and families are unplugging from the control-grid the best they can, as well as reconsidering and re-prioritizing what’s truly important in life.

That’s a good segue into the other dimension of the waking up process. A great awakening is occurring in terms of the deeper layers of reality, including the way the scientific philosophy on life has been intentionally designed to keep us disempowered and disconnected with our true nature.

Exit scientific materialism. This theory has long been debunked by the quantum and parapsychological sciences because human consciousness has clearly been shown to play a co-creative role in the manifestation of our interconnected reality.

Not that this hasn’t been known in one way or another by basically every culture on earth since the beginning of time.

Yet, materialism is still the dominant philosophy of not just the dogmatic discipline we call mainstream science, but also of many minds within the truth and freedom network. When it’s pretty much common knowledge that medical, energy and other corporate-related science has been distorted and suppressed for the benefit of the control-system, why would it be any different when it comes to the philosophical implications of scientific exploration and its associated evidence?

After all, we know that the elite use ritual and symbolic spells to achieve their goals, so clearly they themselves believe beyond the adolescence of a matter-based reality. And when we consider how successful they’ve been, obviously they’ve tapped into the energetic dance in a productive way, at least for themselves.

The fact remains however that there is a huge network of people who are becoming conscious of the nature of consciousness itself. A term to describe this is spirituality, but in summary it’s simply about understanding the connection we have with each other and reality at large, as well as rediscovering the various layers which make up the self.

If you haven’t viewed through this lens in your quest for clarity, you’re unfortunately missing a profound piece of the philosophical puzzle.

In any case, the awakening community is doing some amazing work, even if it’s split between the system-focused and spiritual-focused mindsets. There are of course many balance-minded individuals and groups who are doing both, but for the time being this remains the exception, not the norm.

That will change though. The veterans of truth-seeking, as well as the newly initiated to the conscious society, are energetically primed to create a balance between these two areas of exploration. After all, there is always an opportunity for the magic to be at strength with the madness, just like the positive charge is equal to its negative counterpart, in accordance with natural principles.

That’s duality, in one action.

To reflect on which ways in which you’ve personally woken up, watch the following short documentary.

Survey Reveals More Americans Want Clinton Indicted Than In The White House

The Clinton campaign has seen its share of controversy these days, thanks largely in part to released WikiLeaks documents. And with the presidential election just weeks away, the looming concern over Hillary Clinton’s potential win continues to raise questions and spark discussion over her various scandals. Many wonder if she will ultimately land in jail as opposed to in the White House.

And despite the FBI choosing not to prosecute Clinton, a recent poll took matters into its own hands to expose just how wrong their decision is.

A survey of 1,000 likely voters, which took place on October 18 and 19 by Rasmussen Reports, asked if the participants agreed with the FBI’s decision not to file criminal charges against Clinton, regardless of the fact that she had been careless and may have exposed classified information to hostile countries. The results, which were released on Friday, revealed that 65 percent of the voters surveyed agreed that Clinton broke the law by storing the classified emails on her private server and therefore should have been jailed. Another 39 percent, however, went to those who agreed with the FBI’s decision not to. When split between the Republican and Democratic voters, the survey revealed that 85 percent of Clinton supporters sided with the FBI’s decision.

But 92 percent of Donald Trump supporters felt that Clinton should have been prosecuted. Trump has been very candid with the public about his opinions regarding Clinton’s scandal, of which she deleted 30,000 of her emails as opposed to giving them to the FBI. Trump even promised that Clinton “would be in jail.”

“If I win,” he said at the presidential debate held on October 9, “I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.”

And when Clinton retorted with, “You know, it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” Trump butted in, “Because you would be in jail.”

The survey also asked participants if the email scandal was an important part of their vote, to which 70 percent responded that it was, out of which 49 percent called it “very important.” And 27 percent revealed that the issue wasn’t important to them in the slightest. The most recent data from Rasmussen Reports shows that Donald Trump is ahead by a 43 to 41 percent margin over his Democratic opponent. Rasmussen has been denounced for overstating the popularity of Republican candidates in the 2010 and 2012 mid-term and presidential elections. The company was questioned for showing bias toward the GOP as well.

And other polls show that Clinton is actually in the lead, such as a Reuters/Ipsos poll that took place from October 14 to 20, and showed she had 44 percent support, while Trump had 40.

The 2016 presidential campaign has been among the most controversial and talked about ones yet, as scandals from both candidates, from Clinton’s leaked emails to Trump’s sexual misconduct, continue to be highlighted in media headlines. And many believe we are wasting our time arguing about it at all, since they say the election is likely rigged. And if Clinton does win, then about 70 percent of Republican voters claim it will merely be the result of an election rigged by Democrats, as the results of the Reuters poll reveals.

The Director Of Wikileaks & Julian Assange’s Mentor Gavin MacFadyen Dies

Gavin MacFadyen, the director of Wikileaks and founder of the Centre for Investigative Journalism (CIJ) has passed away at the age of 76. The cause of death is not yet known.

Wikileaks is an organization, along with several other whistleblowers over the past few years, that has blown open details of extreme corruption within the US political system.

Gavin MacFadyen was a hero, and so is Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and many others.  It’s amazing how mainstream media can imply that Wikileaks is a covert operation out to tarnish the reputation of the United States, and millions of citizens simply believe it.

Most of the leaks we’ve seen from Wikileaks are not at all surprising, and evidence has surfaced regarding corruption within this entire system for years. Wikileaks just further adds to that evidence and proves it correct.

Whether it be that most politicians are simply walking billboards, rigged elections, corruption in international politics, or the most sensitive state secrets beyond that, Gavin MacFadyen has played a revolutionary role and won’t be forgotten.

Because of him, millions of people now know that the term “national security” has been used to justify keeping secrets (read more about the Black Budget here), a tool used to prevent the exposure of what is really happening (because it’s wrong), and this is the passion that currently drives others to follow in Gavin’s footsteps in the quest for total transparency.

We must see the truth first in order to transform from it.

His organization, the CIJ, has helped break several major stories and has trained a number of prominent journalists.

Susan Benn released this statement on behalf of family, friends, and The Board and staff of the CIJ:

Over his lifetime Gavin was a fierce defender of justice and human rights around the world. He was a warm, caring, larger-than-life person who, as many will attest, engendered love and respect from all who met him. His life and how he lived it were completely in sync with the principles that he held dear and practiced as a journalist and educator – to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

Gavin founded the Centre for Investigative Journalism in 2003 to address the worsening media climate for in-depth, sceptical and adversarial reporting. Over the next 13 years he helped train thousands of reporters from over 35 countries, many of which are places where journalism is under attack and those who speak out are at enormous risk.  His students have gone on to great things in their careers and can point to Gavin as a mentor and inspiration. He has touched countless lives; his steadfast support for whistleblowers and journalists working in difficult environments has saved and given succor to some of the globe’s most threatened individuals and groups. He was the model of what a journalist should be.

Gavin was one of life’s bravest, most passionate and courageous souls. Prior to CIJ, as an investigative journalist, Gavin produced and directed more than 50 investigative documentaries, many for Granada Television’s World In Action. They covered countries as diverse as Britain, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Guyana, South Africa, Mexico, Hong Kong, Thailand, the US, Sweden, India and Turkey. He was banned from Apartheid South Africa, the Soviet Union, and attacked by British Neo-Nazis because of his films. The volume and quality of his body of work is unparalleled.

His loyalty to those under attack from powerful forces, particularly whistleblowers and journalistic groups like Wikileaks, will remain a beacon for years to come.

His commitment to exposing the true nature of power was his life force. He spearheaded the creation of a journalistic landscape which has irrevocably lifted the bar for ethical and hard-hitting reporting. Gavin worked tirelessly to hold power to account. He once said “Good journalism is always political journalism.”

We want to catalogue all the memories and stories that people have about Gavin on our website. Please email with your thoughts, stories, anecdotes, photos, videos, interviews, and anything else about Gavin that you want to share. Help us celebrate this wonderful, unique, and inspirational human being.

Below are the tweets from Assange via the Wikileaks twitter account.
