Tell us something new Julian..

No, more likely Assange is a Intelligence agency asset,  who will leak certain stuff, but really he is there to be a central collection point for all would-be whistleblowers, and so he can keep the REALLY volatile stuff out of the public eye.  You know, stuff about underground bunkers, the destruction of the dollar, one world currency,  that kind of stuff.

Woe to the whistleblower who trusts Julian Assange, IMO.  He won't sell you out, he will just sit on the information and tell you they are waiting for the right time to release it.

Remember, he was a hacker IN JAIL who got let out early for cutting a deal, I mean, for good behavior.

<s>But the US government said they hated the USA because of their FreeDumbs? Wow, what a game changer, colour me suprised!</s>

BobWatNorCal's picture

Cool, now print some stuff about China, Russia, Iran, Syria, France, Mexico, ... so we can compare and contrast.

LowProfile's picture

Not that it would excuse anything, but I agree.

Out with it.  All of it.

BobWatNorCal's picture

Sorry about that. Won't be forthcoming.
Not on the agenda.
Ya know?

"Out with it.  All of it."

 

We call for it every day.  The proverbial head is over the proverbial toilet. Just go ahead and put a finger down the global throat, and puke already.  Now, that would be a sight to see.

The Federal Reserve Charter expires 12/21/2012. In europe, that date is expressed 21.12.12.

What is Mathew 21:12?

"And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves."

coincidence, im sure.

 

you have about 2 years to spend those dollars. the dollar will cease to exist, the fed charter will not be renewed. ironic that it correllates to the bible verse where jesus kicks the moneychangers out of the temple.

 

this could be by design.

so you must think the dollar will remain the worlds reserve currency. you must think the dollar will survive the actions of the corrupt and banker-infiltrated political process we are seeing now...

now, THAT is the funniest thing I've seen on ZH yet. Good for a hearty laugh, ty.

have a nice sleep. night night.

fairly obvious this is government approved. the pentagon is not this helpless... is it?

wouldnt they attack the site so it couldnt expose the information... if it wanted too?

or does this tie in to the "kill switch"; they will try to make it look like they are doing damage control or it "puts the troops in harms way", so they can kill internet freedoms and the first amendment when they want too.

Wikileaks has been publishing that info for years.

http://wikileaks.org/wiki/Category:Countries

Screwtape Letters's picture

Wikileaks will print it just as soon as someone is willing to part with the information.  It's a site for whistleblowers (god bless it), not a news organization.

Plus, I don't mind if the military's dirty laundry gets aired.  Wikileaks will deserve some credit when we finally put an end to torturing people, so they get a thumbs up in my book.

The big question I have is, where are all the whistleblowers in the financial industry who can provide documentation of Wall Street's crimes.  I started a zerohedge forum topic on just this issue: http://www.zerohedge.com/forum/challenge-all-reformed-or-not-banksters-who-read-zh

I think we all realize now that it is the public that is going to have to bring the banksters to justice.  The administration, the regulators, and congress have all been bought off and will only act if there is no other choice.

Mercury's picture

Yeah, either that or they have an agenda and they could care less about outing Castro, China, Iran, Chavez etc.

Speaking truth to power ...of course... why would you ever think otherwise? - I'm sure they're just waiting for the slightest chink in the armor, the smallest window of insight to go public with like revelations in places like this.

jeff montanye's picture

you meant to say "couldn't care less".  and how could you not have mentioned the palestinians?  i feel cheated.

This debate reminds me of "Never go against a Sicilian" routine from "The Princess Bride":

Man in Black: All right. Where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right... and who is dead. 
Vizzini: But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his enemy's? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me...."

Good God - If Wikileaks is Psiops or Cointel - it's going to have some legit info and some bs info...  If its a legitimate site - it's going to have some legit info and some bs info...  This is where one uses judgment.

Regardless of the greater purpose of the website - there is some pretty damning stuff on there that can be taken at face value [ie Apache helicopters shooting folks rendering aid]

First, as you know, two wrongs don't make a right.

But second, I lost a nephew in that war and would like to think it was for a worthy cause, not this BS.

CH1's picture

Quite so. I want the docs on Russia, China, and all the others too. If not, this becomes just another stilted, mostly political, America-bash fest.

Translation from US duplicity mode: Quite so. I want to believe there is no docs on Russia, China, and all the others too. As I believe there is not, I also believe it is another stilted, mostly, America Bash fest.

And of course, I am a big fan on responsibility. Others performing an action should not dilute my own responsibility in performing the said action.

Etc...

Maybe, would be easier to admit that you approve of what is going on down there.

John Self's picture

I approve of what is going down there. 

That wasn't so hard.

That your post got so heavily "junked" would indicate you are actually onto something.

People just don't want to believe it........

We are all totally beyond FUCKED!

MeTarzanUjane's picture

Agreed. Tyler should override that and reset it to zero, not junk.

Wikileaks should have a junk feature. But maybe that is the Porpoise of the document flood. Just as an attorney in discovery phase is visited by 20 tractor trailers full of "evidence", box after box of junk. A needle in infinite haystacks.

Yep, and so long as we all believe in this insane idea that one group of people is supposed to rule everyone else, we remain fucked.

Yes makes me embarrassed for my country - luckily he is in the minority and is living in northern Alberta.

I do want to look into the phenomena at some point though. The majority of Canadians who write on US financial blogs tend to represent the most extreme Canadian political views. Not sure why. 

Dionysus's picture

Take heart -- we moderate Canadians are here too.  Perhaps we just tend to lurk more.

Spitzer's picture

Look at your avatar.. which gay bar did you stumble out of ? Celebrites on Granville ?

Arkadaba's picture

Hell your avatar is fashioned after Eliot Spitzer! When I first saw that I thought you were being facetious but now thinking ... maybe not.

I actually like Spitzer but Wall street does not. They think he is a douche. When he was charged with the prostitute thing you could hear cheers (literally)  throughout the financial district.

Spitzer's picture

Free sex is the most expensive sex you will ever get.

pan-the-ist's picture

Wouldn't it be cool if he really was spitzer? Soooo cool.

ColonelCooper's picture

Agreed.  I see no reason to think he is anyone but. 

Arkadaba's picture

Not much luck with ladies? Why am I not surprised.

Spitzer's picture

if that is why you think men go to escorts then you dont know what you are missing.

Its the guys that need the approval that dont go to escorts

jeff montanye's picture

it is the approval/change from unwilling to willing/actual hesitancy to reveal that is the real charge.  the actual sex is a bit anti-climactic.  but then again it may be like that some like sweet and some like tart. 

Lower Class Elite's picture

Well, you sure know your gay bars, don't you Spitter?

Spitzer's picture

have you ever sent 150,000 men to war with a gun in one hand and a pocket pussy in the other ? Get real, shit happens man.

midtowng's picture

Some people on ZH define the word "compassion" as "weakness".

CH1's picture

For me it's the same as hearing the word "social" - I immediately grab my wallet.

Al Gorerhythm's picture

You are just as much a Nazi as a "Turn A Blind Eye" villager, who lived and worked near the death camps of WW2 in Nazi Germany. They're only rabble-rousing towel heads, right?

Spitzer, you are walking neon sign that spells; SICK CUNT. May you and your ilk rot from the balls up.

Spitzer's picture

I don't think people understand my point. This is war, did you need wikigeeks to tell you that there is some bad shit going on there ?

Get real, of course there is and it should surprise none of us.

traderjoe's picture

Is it a war or a police action? Are we conquering or attempting to establish a 'democracy'? Did the citizens we are killing actually do anything to us? 

I believe those questions are relevant. If we are there in an attempt to help form some kind of democracy, then the tactics we use to accomplish this can influence the success of our mission. 

I agree that war is hell, but that does not, nor should it, diminish our responsibility to win that war with honor and an attempt to set a higher (but realistic) standard. 

Saying none of this should surprise anyone is far too apologetic to the atrocities committed...

Spitzer's picture

The Americans are winning the war with honor and that is my problem with wikileaks. Nobody is perfect.

 

Oh regional Indian's picture

"Winning the war with honor"

Seriously? Boy, you sure have an interesting definition of honor.

You are truly conditioned Spitz, but of course, I remember all my interactions with folks like you during my time in the US. It never ended well because most often, they just started foaming at the mouth and telling me to "go Home". Of course most of them were maximum a couple of generations old in the US themselves, so the  kool-aid was still tasty.

Omnihumanity (Cliff High Phrase, I like), collectively is under influencs well beyond their control, fortunately or unfortunately.

If you want to understand why we are so war-minded, look no further than around you. Planet been acting up lately? Mega Storms, Mega disasters, Mega Quakes.... everything bad happening to a "never-before" degree. Mega financial crisis. Hmmmmmm...... let us see...

If your house was on fire, would you be able to sit and sip a wine in your living room and be kind andloving all around? Probably not, you'd be a panicked fool, running around trying to douse the flames, save your things, your family, whatever.

Well, the earth is on fire.

How can we, it's residents be comfortable? Even if my house is not burning yet, I can see a trend. Most people can sense it.

People sicker than ever before? Check. More crime globally? Check. Species disappearing? Check. Identities in crises? Check. Society disintegrating? Check.

It's just that time folks and the pressure is peaking (or is it Bejing???).

The system will give and we are all going to feel th epain. To doubt that is to deny reality.

But still, in the midst of all this, it's possible to be kind, generous.

I'm glad Spitzy here is neither friend nor family.

Good luck to you Spitzy, you are going to need it.

Don't agree

How would you have liked to live through the great depression, fight in WW1 and then send your kids or grand kids to fight in WW2 ? That was hell.

This nation building experiment that the US is doing is not as bad as you think. The saddest part is that the US is broke. The US is doing a noble thing. They could have easily turned Iraq and Afstan into a parking lot.

Wait till China is the world superpower and a couple of their buildings get leveled by muslim terrorists. The Chinese WILL turn the middle east into a parking lot, and then wikifags et al will be begging for George Bush back.

I am actually looking forward to China being the superpower, then maybe I can board an international flight without taking my shoes off because the whole middle east will be known as lake China.
