Hacker Group Anonymous Brings Peaceful Revolution To America: Will Engage In Civil Disobedience Until Bernanke Steps Down

Tyler Durden's picture


The world's most (in)famous hacker group - Anonymous - known for effectively shutting down their hacking nemesis security firm (with clients such as Morgan Stanley and, unfortunately for them, Bank of America)- HBGary, advocating the cause of Wikileaks, and the threat made by one of its members that evidence of fraud by Bank of America will be released on Monday, has just launched communication #1 in its Operation "Empire State Rebellion." The goal - engage in "a relentless campaign of non-violent, peaceful, civil disobedience" until Ben Bernanke steps down and the "Primary Dealers within the Federal Reserve banking system be broken up and held accountable for rigging markets and destroying the global economy effective immediately."

The Anonymous manifesto:

  • We are a decentralized non-violent resistance movement, which seeks to restore the rule of law and fight back against the organized criminal class.
  • One-tenth of one percent of the population has consolidated wealth in unprecedented fashion and launched an all-out economic war against 99.9% of the population.
  • We are not affiliated with either wing of the two-party oligarchy. We seek an end to the corrupted two-party system by ending the campaign finance and lobbying racket.
  • Above all, we aim to break up the global banking cartel centered at the Federal Reserve, International Monetary Fund, Bank of International Settlement and World Bank.
  • We demand that the primary dealers within the Federal Reserve banking system be broken up and held accountable for rigging markets and destroying the global economy, effective immediately.
  • As a first sign of good faith we demand Ben Bernanke step down as Federal Reserve chairman.
  • Until our demands are met and a rule of law is restored, we will engage in a relentless campaign of non-violent, peaceful, civil disobedience.
  • In our next communication we will announce Operation Empire State Rebellion.

Michael, put the Bic down and step away.  Here we have one of the few groups on the planet with a passion, competence, knowledge, and reputation similar to the ZH fanatics; they are willing to champion our favorite cause, and they appear to have both a grudge and a plan.. It sounds like they have a more tactical focus than we have so let's find out what their plan is and see if there is some way we can help.

+1 clymer, "...believe it when I see it indeed".

Great news that the lids finally look like being blown off the systemic corruption underlying so much of western society. What starts in the US will quickly spread through Europe imho.

I do wonder though how many ZH posters are really ready and willing to be the Guy Fawkes' that they make out. There is a lot of bluster and BS posted here everyday however I'd like to know how many actually understand what the impact would be on their way of life should the system be reset.

Your talking about circumstances that lead to civil wars and also battles to maintain your soverignty. And while many of you are loading your chambers to troll this and claim that soverignty is a load of BS anyway, I am sure you'd not be so cocky if you'd spent any real time time in 3rd world countries and seen how the "others" are living (that doesn't include 2 weeks a year on a sun lounge either).

Helping Anon to shed light on corruption and begin the process of making people accountable is something that could be a turning point in history however calling for essentially dissolving your way of life is either idiocy or just hot air.

Well done Anon for keeping this dream alive.

I think that the view that the government is watching YOU and cares what YOU think is only slightly less narcissistic than people who think that in a Universe of a billion galaxies there is some supreme being that cares if YOU pass your fifth grade math exam.

Threaten a major public official by leaving a message at the WH might get Secret Service attention, training with al Qaeda in Waziristan might get you flagged at the sirport upon return...but absent something like that, you are all safe to speak your mind.  Seriously, the PTB couldn't care less about the comment section of ZH;  it exists for our amusement and our delusions of grandeur.

I think that reality is what got you junked 19 times, because everybody wants to be more significant than he is, and does not want his utter insignificance to be thrown in his face.

On ZH we are told continually about all the "deading" the nefarious PTB do or have done, all the governments they've overthrown, etc.  This goes unquestioned.  Ask for a list, however, and even the most conspiratorially minded couldn't fill a single sheet of Post-it.  Of course, toss out a name like Mossadegh (six decades ago, maybe) and everyone gets a welcome dose of confirmation bias, content again they know the "real story".

Tried to read your post a couple of different ways - but really can't dial in on your position so well.

So, just to point it out anyhow... we are screwed either way.  Do you really think the dream is alive?  The dream died a long time ago - since then, it has been an illusion - the same as thinking your vote matters.  History suggests we are in for rough ride and turning points are unavoidable.  Delaying the pain might only deepen the pain.  Quite a gamble.

I agree there are lots of folks who don't really know what they are asking for.  Not so much here at ZH as in mainstream.  But still true.

ah, a realist. while wanting to watch it burn to eradicate the corruption but unwilling to set the fire oneself, once lit we must choose to either 1) work to put the flames out, 2) sit and watch, or 3) fan the flames. all options involve a conscious decision, and any one of us may alternate in our impulses at any given time. but, once the flames are started, those opting for the sit and watch approach will be carried (willingly or not) by those opting for 1 or 2. Egypt, Algeria, Bahrain, Lybia, soon Iran and rest of ME, eventually China and the West. who knows what will spark the flame or when, and does it really matter? we will all be participants, one way or another.

ZH/Tyler gives a nudge, but each of us must set our own premise.

I think this is a very smart way to revolt against TPTB.  The information they supposedly have access to and the ability to 'reveal' it would be more effective than actual boots on the ground.

I for one am well traveled.  Living and working in the third world, war ravaged states for many years at a time.  I am also presently on 'probation'.  I am fully aware that my freedoms are at risk, more so than most, for taking any kind of stance because of my probationary status, BUT it is time to take a stand.  I fully accept the 'transition' period & the consequences.


I am 'RED' on this forum.

Fliers and Stencil ideas are wanted to spread the info to the masses.

I'm not an armchair revolutionary. I spent half my fortune supporting Ron Paul's Presidential campaign and am prepared to spend the rest restoring the US Constitution. I was a campaign organizer in SW Florida and was out on the streets waving signs for over a year to get Dr Paul name recognition because the lamestream media for their corporate interests ignored him and disparaged him continually. We started the fucking Tea Party Movement for crying out loud and made some progress in changing the culture of Congress, but that is too little too late. The country and monetary system are totally fucked right now. If we got Ron Paul elected back then, we may have had a mild depression, but would be mostly through it by now just like Iceland.

I have a better understanding of the intricate details of WHY we are in this mess then most people, who is responsible for it, and what needs to be done to fix it. I actually got my first introduction to Ron Paul when bloging on "Housing Panic" blog, blog owner no longer active, but there I first saw a video of Dr Paul giving a speech on the House floor and knew immediately back then we needed that guy to lead the country or all hope would be lost. Ron Paul lost and true to my prediction all hope was lost to fix the problem. The goal now is clear and I do not make threats lightly. Anonymous articulated the problem and demands perfectly and it's a good starting point. Complete reforms will follow if we are successful.

You libertarians are so fucking ignorant and delusional, it's truly amazing that you can put your pants on. 

Iceland? !!  Are you fucking kidding me? !!  You think that a tiny island in the North Atlantic with a population of 300k, and a GDP of $12B is even remotely comparable to the United States?  Un-fucking-believable! That's like comparing a muni default in Danville Illinois, to a default of the US Treasury.  You're equating fire crackers to nuclear bombs.  

Delusional to the MAX!!  Totally mentally unbalanced.  

ONE bank on Wall Street (JPM) makes nearly 50% more in PROFITS (2010 profits of $17.4B) than the entire GDP of Iceland.  JPM's assets are over $2 trillion, which is almost 200 times greater than the entire GDP of Iceland.  And that's just ONE of our banks!

You libertarians live a pure fantasy world, completely detached from reality and common sense.  You have NO understanding of the consequences that you ask for.  NONE.  You're etherized by your doomer fantasies of urban warfare, anarchy, underground bunkers and archaic visions of America that harken back to the pilgrims and colonial days.  The world evolved, yet your mind didn't. 

Of course, I shouldn't expect too much from someone who (yesterday) wished the Japan disaster occurred on our own turf.

These hackers are anything but dummies.

Chief of Internet security at the Pentagon resigned about 6 weeks ago because he did not want to be the fall guy for the hackers getting into the system.  10,000 attacks per hour and growing and he and the team are overwhelmed to try to stop it. 

Does anyone think this government or any of these financial criminals have the power to stop these guys from getting into the systems.  They have even gotten into the new ultra secure "web" that was suppose to be completely discrete from the WW web and attack isn't.

Look at how long Microsoft has been trying to defeat Zeus Botnet, what a year, and it is still penetrating passwords and financial records.

Rest assured, the hackers will not be stopped, and they will way or another.

While I applaud these guys, if the poor bastards do anything and get caught they'll get the full-court press terrorist treatment as a lesson to the rest of us.

Here is how we get back our country/world... I call it a consumer strike:

1.  DON'T BUY ANYTHING except food, fuel, necessary medicines and PM's.

2.  Don't watch TV, and especially DON'T BUY ANYTHING ADVERTISED on TV.

3.  Move your funds to community banks and credit unions.  NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH AN INTERNATIONAL BANK.

Extra credit (this really sticks it to 'em):

4.  Convert your assets to physical property/PM's and barter for your needs as much as possible.

5.  Buy used items as much as possible.

Folks, I'm sorry to say -- voting for either party won't change anything.  Peaceful protests, civil disobedience won't change anything.  Violence certainly won't.  But we can bring down the elite by going on strike.

STARVE THE BEAST, and pass on the word when ever you can.

Those who take it a step further, i.e. activists and "anonymous" types; protect them.  Hide them, help them, keep them sheltered.

A consumer strike is the most potent weapon in this kind of war . . . and far safer than bullets.

Hell, in this context, it is every bullet you don't fire that hits its mark . . . while preserving your ammunition  in the process.

And never has War demanded so little.

Actually, they will.  Keynesian type governments almost always collapse on their own.  Watch Japan to see how it happens.

Japan has destroyed nearly all of it's own capital.  All it takes at that point is a natural disaster to wipe out the remaining capital, and the government will collapse, and the people will starve and die.  Irwin Schiff predicted this decades ago, and outlined the process in this allegory:

Lehman Boys walking scot free?

According to the paper,Securities and Exchange Commission officials have begun to doubt they can prove that Lehman broke U.S. laws by moving nearly $50 billion in assets off its balance sheet to make it appear that the securities firm had lowered its debt burden.

I hope you all will forgive me, but I just find some irony in the posting of market action (however accurate or otherwise) within the confines of an article of this nature.   Am I the only one who finds the whole exercise to be feeding the beast?  I could say the comment is off topic, but I'd get reminders that this is a "financial blog".  If that is really the case why the article in the first place.   That's a rhetorical question.

How to profit from the earthquake, how to profit from financial Armageddon, how to profit from discomfort and misery.   Isn't this how we got here?   Maybe it's just me.

The MONSANTO crimes were exposed in "FOOD, INC", and The Kaisier Report and who did anything about it?  No one except maybe the Haitian farmers who burnt all the Monsanto seeds rather than plant them.

Vanity Fair, Ethical Investing, Diane Rhem, The Worldpress, and others have tried to expose and bring some justice to their practices, but nothing has happen.  Why, because government and financial interests are married to the beast and shall not cut off the hand that feeds them.

xactly.  All of these assholes are connected.  Monsanto basically is in control of the entire planets food evolution down to the molecular level.  In a few years they will be in control of everything food and in the process put out of business virtually all organic farmers if something is not done.  It is no secret they are genetically manipulating the crops/feed...I could go on but there is a ton of info out there on this.  I believe this goes hand in hand with the financial system that is designed to mentally imprison the bulk of humanity into subserviantism(just made up that word I think).  You control the money and you control the food, it's game over for anyone not in the know.  Technology progesses not on a linear scale but on an exponential level.  I try to explain this to my friends and anyone who'll listen.  We hit the expotential curve so it's not like we're talking 20-30 years, something major will be happening to the human race in the next 5-15 years if something is not done.  Call me crazy if ya want, but don't just stop with the financial information, arm yourself with all the information we have available while the internet is still open and free.
