“I don’t want to get blown up! I don’t want them to say it was some unfortunate bus accident. I try to stay away from the subject of Hillary, but go on,” Breitbart Editor and social media phenomenon Milo Yiannopoulos said when asked about the current state of affairs with Hillary Clinton.
Yiannopoulos said that when it comes to rumors about Clinton’s health, her campaign has done more harm by trying to hide it.
“We were told it was a crazy conspiracy theory, but was it ever a crazy conspiracy theory? It was just a bunch of people on the internet noticing that something was not quite right, and now finally everybody is like, ‘Well, we can’t quite ignore it now, can we? This is news, right? Look, it may be nothing, but so long as they lie about it, people are going to think it’s worse than it it. Unless it is really bad, who knows right?”
Yiannopoulos noted that because of the Clinton campaign’s silence, there could now be a “snowball effect,” whereas if she had addressed her health-related problems up front, her campaign could have played it down. Yiannopoulos also questioned how Clinton’s health will affect her debate performance.
“Just imagine, Trump is like a steamroller, you know? He’s just on it all the time, and whatever you think of him and his crazy answers to questions and all that—even those of us who love him and praise him as a god emperor sometimes are like ‘Did you have to do that?’ You know, nobody is perfect—he’s about as close as it gets… no, I’m kidding—he’s a steamroller. She’s going to get up there—she looks frail, she can’t speak properly, she has to drink this thickened water, apparently. How is she going to do in the debates? I don’t think anyone knows.”
However, when asked about whether health problems will cause Clinton to drop out, Yiannopoulos said, “A Clinton, really? No, of course not. She’s going to be in it until the bitter end.”
“Do you remember the ‘Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy?’ Hillary Clinton coined that phrase… to explain away her family’s misdeeds, their wrong-doings, and it remarkable to see the same [strategy now]. She did it in a speech about the Alt-Right, you know this vast right-wing conspiracy, where she effectively called half the country… bigots, racists and anti-semites. I mean, that’s the real conspiracy.”
EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Anonymous #OpIcarus the Operation Against Central Banks
Recently I spoke with a known Hacktivist and member of the Anonymous collective, who claims to have directly contributed to Operation #Icarus by successfully (DDoS) taking down 9 major banks over Memorial Day weekend.
He agreed to the interview on the condition of Anonymity, but proved his claims to me by sending me several screen shots.
The mainstream media has been quiet about the operation and some Anons have distanced themselves from the operation calling it an attack against innocent civilians.
When I asked, “What’s the reason for the Op?,” the hacktivist Anon said it was
“Anything but an attack against innocents. It was geared specifically toward the Central Banks, the Rothschilds, JP Morgan-Chase, and the rest of the Wall Street and banking elites. The war mongers; those that want World War 3…those who we know are funding ISIS.””
Anonymous released a list of institutions the collective plans to target, which is divided into four sections; websites associated with the U.S. Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Bank, and over 150 pages associated with national banks around the globe.
He went on to say that “no one involved in the operation was targeting the innocent”. According to insiders it’s another hacking group known as Lazarus who was raiding the banks for cash. He said that “Lazarus…was working on their own accord and acting with out the general consensus of the collective Op.“ He also stated they appeared to be from Korea, and the four raids on the central banks so far this year appear to be somewhere in the $50-$100 million dollar range. He also said said“more financial attacks will be carried out this year.”
He claims every attack averages to about $440,000 in damages. The press release on YouTube states exactly that – the operation is against the wealthy corporations and banks. They vow to hold down Paypal, MasterCard and other credit card companies, all central banks worldwide, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), and all stock exchanges.
Since the claims made in the press release that Anonymous was about to launch a historic attack against the finance industry, the threats and attacks have been carried out as more then 2 dozen banks have been hit by DDoS attacks already. Some members of the Hacktivist collective Anonymous have dismissed the operation, but that’s no surprise as Anonymous has always been diverse and divisive in its operations, as there are no leaders in the movement – only ideas. Ideas that people either choose to support or choose not to, its entirely up to them.
A full text of the interview is below.
Interview with Anonymous
“The reason for the Op was simple. After Rothschild and the other elite ruling families had already drained us and the middle east from every resource there possibly was and then continued to butcher millions more innocent people, we decided we had had enough. We have tried protesting, some have tried voting, we have tried marching. We have tried everything. They weren’t listening to us. Perhaps when we attack all of their Central Banks, they will find it harder to ignore us.”
“It was time for something like this to happen. Many people have been waiting for such an event. The Central Banks are more afraid of the people than they are letting on.”
“We have shown them just how vulnerable they are and that at any time, they can become our target. This is a lesson they had to learn.”
“So far we have been taking the sites offline. However, with this being said, we have noticed the sudden increase in attacks on the banks since we started the event, by teams such as Lazarus who have already raided 4 banks. Team Lazarus have obviously been acting on their own accord outside of the Op itself, but we like to think that perhaps we contributed a little by pointing everyone towards the banks again. Ideas are like fires in dry woods, it only takes a small light to burn down an entire forest.”
“Its the business sites only. Our aim isn’t to hurt the ordinary man at all. With costs averaging on $440.000 per attack, with 50 banks, this has cost the central banks lots of money. Team Lazarus appear to be from Korea. They have done 4 raids on international Central Banks this year. Raids seem to be somewhere around the $ 50 – $100 million range. The US is calling it an outright attack on the financial industry. We expect this year to be full of them.”
“This year is going to be a massive year for attacks against the banks. Its either that or watch Rothschild and friends start world war 3 over Syria against the Russians and Chinese in September.”
“They’ve been in trouble since 2011, they lost a lot of family money which they are desperate to try and get back through any means necessary even to the point where they would create ISIS and then let them loose on us. They are starting to show just how vulnerable they are. Thats why I love these kind of attacks. A Ddos attack on all of Rothschild’s companies websites show the public exactly how vulnerable they are. The time of thinking they are “untouchable” is over. The moment they put their heads in the spot light with Genie Energy in Golan Heights, Syria, I knew that from that moment we would never let them go back into the shadows again. This year has to be an outright war against Rothschild and other elite ruling families. Their insane genocidal nature needs to be dealt with. They have lost touch with everything and everyone around them, and perhaps all these attacks on them, make them feel that little more human.”
“Yes. They are being hunted by many militia groups now also. Their time has come. They failed. Russia buying their independence from Rothschild banking and Iran maintaining its neutral zone has been a huge help. Also China building their economy back up the way they have done over the last decade. Yes, I can give you a list”
MEDIA ROOTS– Doug Mckenty from KZYX’s Thursday Morning Report conducts an hour interview with Bay Area artist and community activist Abby Martin of Media Roots, where she reports from “outside party lines”. They discuss the false left/right paradigm, the electability of non establishment candidates, the renaissance of citizen journalism, censorship in the corporate press and 9/11.
MEDIA ROOTS– A couple of weeks ago, John Vanderslice killed his headlining show at the New Parish in Oakland. As he milled around the merch table enthusiastically greeting dedicated fans, I approached him and asked if he would be willing to conduct an exclusive interview for Media Roots. His response was unexpected- a charismatic and resounding “Yes” that rang with genuine interest.
Even more disarming than his excitement for the interview was his likability. Not only is John an amazingly talented songwriter, musician and producer, but he is also one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever come across. More than anything though, he is an excellent storyteller.
Throughout his impressive and lengthy discography, three albums stand out as the most politically motivated: 2004’s Cellar Door is a raw, activist rock album with brilliant underpinnings in its lyricism; 2005’s Pixel Revolt is a more refined, beautifully structured album full of the same political angst; and 2007’s Emerald City, named after Baghdad’s fortified “Green Zone,” is a rock solid gem, brilliantly combining both the production quality of Pixel and the dark undertones of Cellar Door.
John’s songs are mostly narratives told through the eyes of different characters, giving him the ability to explore dark and controversial issues in a uniquely perceptive way. The political commentary throughout these albums range from 9/11 foreknowledge in the song Exodus Damage to the story of prostitution in Afghanistan in Trance Manual. The song White Dove explores humanity’s capacity to forgive horrific crimes of war, and Tablespoon of Codeine is about numbing your mind in order to cope with reality.
John Vanderslice’s sound can’t be boxed into any particular genre. It encompasses folk, rock, strings, electronic and experimental sounds. When his unique and amazing lyrics are added into the equation, his music transcends classification.
He runs the all-analog recording study Tiny Telephone in the Mission District of San Francisco, where bands like Deerhoof, Spoon and Death Cab for Cutie have recorded. I was lucky enough to sit down with John at Tiny Telephone for an in depth and candid conversation about the struggles of independent musicians, the US political system and foreign policy, and for some exclusive interpretive insights on a few of my favorite songs.
This is an exclusive Media Roots Radio interview with Utah based documentarian Brett Smith, conducted by Abby and Robbie Martin on February 23, 2011. In 2006, Brett’s love of films drew him into taking a film class where he was required to make a 15 minute short. That 15 minute short later turned into 40 minute documentary called Hypothesis.
Hypothesis is a documentary that follows physics professor Steven E. Jones during a pivotal time in his life. In 2005, Jones went public with a theory about 9/11 that was so controversial, it resulted in everything from hate mail, threats, and even bribery to try to end his research. Despite the outside pressures, Jones vowed to never give up on his pursuit of the truth.
