Wikileaks Activates "Contingency Plans" After Unknown "State Party" Cuts Julian Assange's Internet Connection

In what may be the first official retaliation against Julian Assange and Wikileaks since the organization started disseminating the hacked Podesta emails, this morning WikiLeaks announced it has "activated contingency" plans after Assange's internet link was intentionally cut off by a state party, WikiLeaks has said in a tweet.

There was little actual detail, aside from a subsequent tweet in which WikiLeaks called on the public to support it by donating.

Previously on Sunday, there was concern about Assange's well-being when Wikileaks tweeted out what some suggested were the "dead man keys" that are allegedly the encryption codes for highly damaging secret documents to be uneviled in the case of Assange's death.

These may have been the "contingency plans" referred to in the subsequent Wiki tweet.

Even former outspoken Trump advisor Roger Stone got involved tweeting that "John Kerry has threatened the Ecuadorian President with "grave consequences for Equador" if Assange is not silenced" adding that "Reports the Brits storm the Ecuadorian Embassy tonite while Kerry demands the UK revoke their diplomatic status so Assange can be seized."

So far this appears to be just wild speculation. The latest news in the Assange saga comes as WikiLeaks continues to release on a daily basis hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta, which could ruin Clinton’s chances of becoming the next US president. Clinton’s campaign has suggested that WikiLeaks is working together with the Russian government to help defeat them in favor of Trump. The latest, 9th, batch comes amid revelations of Clinton’s cozy relationship with the mainstream media, and how they work closely to control the media landscape and set up stories that show her in a favorable light. Earlier this month, it emerged that Hillary Clinton reportedly wanted to “drone” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange when she was the US secretary of state.

So far there had been no intervention by outside entities to attempt to silence Julian Assange, so the latest intervention "by a state party", if confirmed would be a notable escalation in the status quo, and suggests that Wikileaks may have even more damaging revelations to come.

I feel for the guy. He must know he is a dead man walking.

I hope what he's got is enough to execute this psychopathetic corrupt sick bitch for high treason. If a few others from her inner circle went down with her, so much the better.

Yeah, plus it is kind of coincidental that just a couple of days before the third debate, they resort to force majeure measures against Assange. Which means he had some serious shit coming up.

Manthong's picture

Well, F all of them.

Does that mean they cut off interweb to the entire embassy?

Ok so do we need to beam a mesh or hugely high power directional and uninterruptable bi-directional high freq link?

It can be done

It can be done on a laser..

So much for the incremental drip, drip, drip of documents from Wikileaks... Get ready for a deluge of dirt on everyone from the Queen of England to Barry the bathrrom bandit...

Do these clowns actually think taking out Assange will stop the dumps?

Which Hollywood script are they working from this time?

Haus-Targaryen's picture

For information related to the FCO, Kerry & Ecuador hashs see:

Seems like these tweets with hashs are threats, including one to Ecuador.  It could explain state actor severing internet connection.  These are used as an anchor to compare future releases to.  If the hash from a future release does not match what was just posted then it has been altered.  

If Assange is threatening Ecuador with a data dump related to them, then things are very serious for the guy.  

Keep this on your radar. 

If true, this will be a very interesting week.

If they kill him, they better forget about waging any cyberwar with Russia, because they're going to have a cyber-civil-war at home.

Assange is an international villain, trying to rig our free and fair elections by smearing the Democrats. He needs to be stopped at all costs. And BTW Zerohedge, you might want to be careful looking into these wikileaks releases by yourselves as CNN has warned that it is illegal to do so unless you are an accredited media outlet:

Just a warning.

Jesus! I hope it is sarcasm, or you're the biggest fuckin' idiot, I've ever come across!

How can I be an idiot for having a mainstream opinion and quoting CNN?

There it is, the punch line.

And ZH will keep on arguing about whether it's funny, or is even offered as a joke.


CuttingEdge's picture

Quoting CNN?

Now you see, MDB, that is why you do not get it.Any of it.

This guy one of your favourites? Because the only audience he apparently has are fucking imbeciles, judging by that clip.


If you are attempting satire, it has to be at least remorely believable...

CNN audience is the lobby of every hotel and car wash. If not for the public places this TV operates in it would have been out of business.

Yep, he jumped the shark.  I'm disappointed.

..........because they are idiots and propagandist.

Let us not again be deluded with false promises and deceitful assurances; but let us judge what men will do by what they have done.

ThisIsMadness's picture

YOU cannot avoid being an idiot. 

Creeps's picture

Now that's what I call bait! 

If you haven't figure out that MDB_ is a troll (and a genius one at that) by now than you haven't been on ZH for very long. 
Not that you won't meeting people like MDB_ IRL, but when you do, just agree and amplify.  Here’s an example of amplifying a shitlibs view, like the one MDB_ has.  If an individual doesn't have a mainstream opinion, which we all know is backed up by accredited experts, then as a society it is our obligation to evaluate that person for mental disorders and re-educate them, for society’s protection and progress. 

Your Creator's picture

they should do this to the leftist media.

Stranger_in_a_Strange_Land's picture

Indeed.  Must be from accredited experts.  For example, read this exchange:


Literal quote:  "I think I’ll go with expert opinion on the source of the hacks, rather than your advocacy."


A call to create the Ministry of Truth, a shutdown of information, and CNN's admonition to only accept their truth, is met with cheers and rejoicing from those types.  It reminds me of that line from the Star Wars flick, "So this is how liberty dies...with thunderous applause."


Simply mindblowing the extent of mindlessness the U.S. populace is steeped.

I down voted you for calling MDB a genious.


richinSpirit's picture

Mental disorder(for some):

Willingness to think or believe with transparency in public.

Cure(for some):

Re-order mind of the mind's operator by external means

I mean, really?

You could just pray for a renewing of your own mind, but remember the source of those methods; for sure not the right way for some.

You just answered your own question. Believe CNN? Good Lord!

That was hilarious.......even though I don't post ....alot I old school zero can they not get your sarcasm ......

Sarcasm your ass.
MDB is serious, I have come to realize.

I like to believe that MDB projects, with exacting precision, the very model of the psyche with which we do battle.

cayman's picture

In theory MDB could actually exist, but it would have to be in Columbia and within the boundaries of the ten miles square.  That's the only place where the parasite could draw what it needs to survive and without rejection by the host.

Of course MDB is stirring the pot of those who are intellectually challenged. I cannot believe how many posts I have to skip because they relate to some asinine thing he said. For anyone under the misimpression MDB is a satirist, you can find all the hilarity you seek by vacating ZH and focusing your attention on the MSM. It's all there for you. Otherwise, I beg you, don't encourage this troll/hack by acknowledging his comments.

MDB is a troll, stop feeding him!!!!!
