Julian Assange Crushes Obama Narrative: "Our Source Is Not The Russian Government"

Tyler Durden's picture

As Obama gets set to announce retaliation efforts against the Russian government for "hacking" the 2016 election, Julian Assange has come forward, once again, to confirm that his source is not the Russians.  Appearing on the Sean Hannity radio show, Assange had the following to say:

Assange:  "Our source is not the Russian government."


Hannity:  "Let me be clear, Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?"


Assange:  "That's correct."


Meanwhile, even James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence who oversees the 17 intelligence agencies that Hillary loved to quote during the campaign, confirmed, after the election, that he had no "good insight" into where WikiLeaks received they're information.

James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence (11/17/16):  "As far as the WikiLeaks connection, the evidence there is not as strong and we don't have good insight into the sequencing of the releases or when the data may have been provided.  We don't have as good insight into that."

So, just to summarize where we are.  WikiLeaks, the organization behind both the DNC and Podesta leaks, has confirmed repeatedly that its source was not the Russian government.  James Clapper, the head of Hillary's 17 intelligence agencies, has confirmed that he has no "good insight" into where WikiLeaks got their information.  But the Obama administration, utilizing the full might of the corrupt mainstream media, is about to "retaliate" against the Russian government, without a shred of credible evidence, as the mainstream media continues to spin a dangerous narrative based on "anonymous" sources at the CIA.  Does that about sum it up? 

Here is the full interview with Assange:

Of couse he is. Don't believe the false narratives that he is dead or been detained.

DjangoCat's picture

Where's the beef?  "Of course he is" is not evidence.

UndergroundPost's picture

Meddling Marxist Obama seems to want a war or two (China!) as he leaves office to finalize his revolution. Assange is irrelevant to his ambitions to Fundamentally Transform America

swampmanlives's picture

Trump is a Marxist too. He rallied up the working class,  promised to get their jobs back and overthrow the elite if they voted for him. Doens't get any more Marxist than that.

UndergroundPost's picture

If Trump is anything, he's certainly not a Marxist. Back to the library swampman

What's truly remarkable

is that Julian Assange is being listened to

by a very large, conservative Republican audience

on the Sean Hannity Show  (!!!)

My, how times have changed . . .

I lean towards he's an intelligence asset. Could be the white hats vs the black hats? The whole thing could be a psy op. It's very well done if Trump is in on it. Curiouser and curiouser.

El Vaquero's picture

Except Trump hasn't vowed to seize the means of production, which is literally what it takes to be a Marxist.  He has only vowed to put tariffs on imported goods.  Big difference.

swampmanlives's picture

Perhaps it is a bit of a stretch, nonetheless, Trump has threatened to punish the free market by limiting their ability to produce goods where the cheapest labour is. Of course Trump is not a complete commie, but it can't be denied there were Marxist undertones in his campaign.

Tax revenue and consumer growth comes only from putting the best part of 95 million more people to work.

Not kicking some financial can, noob.

swampmanlives's picture

Perhaps there are 95 million out of work, but that is only if you include students and your 90 year old grandman who is retired. The number is more like 55 million if you take those people out.

DuneCreature's picture

You can verify this how? ... His voice?

He sounds to me like he's answering and speaking too quickly to be Assange.

Is all impossible to really verify.  All I know from observation over the last few decades is that whatever a politician is jumping up and down about is usually a lie.

Tall Tom's picture




That is Assange...




The speech patterns are identical.


HOWEVER it seems as if the tape was edited as there is no time delay or response lag due to transmission distance to and from a GeoStat Comm Satellite..


So were Assange's answers to original questions from Hannity? Or was it patchwork?


That is why it seemed too quick. That is the inconsistency.

Tall Tom's picture




I wrote that the tape is not evidence as it seems to have been doctored.


I just described why it seemed too quick.


They are NOT in the same room. They are on a telephone. There is supposed to be a time delay.

I just replied to you because it was the last post in that sub thread.  I wasn't meaning to reply to your statement.

I did however just read an interesting post by salinaslayer at voat.  It certainly makes sense...


"As you probably read already, a load of files in wikileaks had their date mysteriously changed to "01-Jan-1984 01:01"

If you google "nineteen eighty-four 0101" these are the two first pages:



In page 102 of the first link you will find:

"The door opened. The cold-faced young officer stepped into the cell. With a brief movement of the hand he indicated Ampleforth.

'Room 101,' he said."

The main character is imprisoned in that section of the book, the room is 101, the dates are clearly not a coincidence.

Julian Assange has been taken, do not believe anything they say until you see him, do not trust Wikileaks, do not leak to Wikileaks, download the files from the torrents if you have to and minimize your exposure to the website."

Sorry but I talk to individuals in Europe where the time zones are 9 and 10 hours apart and there is never a noticeable time lag. This is using voip via phone as well as software.

sleigher's picture

Listen to the interview to understand of what he writes.  It is not normal regardless of distance.

bh2's picture

The session was likely pre-recorded.

Yes, the pauses would have been edited out in the interest of time and continuity.

No, that isn't evidence the speaker was an Assage look-alike.

And if Assage were kidnapped or killed, there is no reason to believe the Ecuadoran Embassy would join in a plot to suppress that news.

Tall Tom's picture




It is not evidence that Assange is still alive which is the point.


Pauses are generally not edited out of telephone interviews aired on Main Stream Media. I can show you a plethora of those telephone interviews on YouTube.


Since it was a telephone interview, unless it was on Skype, which it was not, then it would be impossible to see the appearance of the interviewee.


And as for the Ecuadoran Embassy spies...er...Ambassadors and staff...They do have families and they are vunerable to threats and retaliation. And I do not put that past the CIA to carry those out.


By the way...Thank you US Government for declaring my apartment vacant. I should take the hint that they may disappear me from this residence.


So that may be a downside as to posting your street address on Zerohedge as I have done previously..


So no. I do not that past the CIA. They will Black Bag anyone that they want.

Tall Tom, have a look at this video interview with Julian Assange and John Pilger on RT:


it should start from 17:40. this is the only visual proof of life of assange since wikileaks went temporarily offline in october. and it has some very strange glitches which happen not even between sentences or words to make interview shorter via legitimate editing.

it just extremely suspicious we haven't seen him in his natural environment since the shady incidents in the ecuadorian embassy in october. 

Escapeclaws's picture

He is niether alive nor dead but both because he is in a superposition of states.

The guests on the talk shows usually have to be prepared to speak quickly and lose no time or else the host will interupt.

Tall Tom's picture




It is interesting that he can anticipate the question before he hears it as there is a significant time delay in transmission of the question and a time delay in receivung a response.


They are not in the same room.


They are separated by an ocean.


And as it takes time to travel the 22,500 miles to the GeoStationary Comm Sat...and the 22,500 miles back...even at light speed that will take some time..Bit this interview sounded as if they were in the same room when supposedly it was by intercontinental telephone.


Not like a Cell Phone which is almost instantaneous as they are transmitted through GWEN Towers...




That is how I know, without any doubt, that it was doctored.

BarkingCat's picture

Call Europe and have a conversation with someone there and then get back to us.

I have done it many times and don't detect any sort of delay.

Emergency Ward's picture

Is there a reason you think the transmission was via satellite rather than via undersea fiber-optic cable? 

RedDwarf's picture

You can go around the globe 9 times in one second at the speed of light.  There is no reason for there to be a delay.  Please stop writing huge long comments with tons of padding taking up large amounts of real estate when you are so deeply ignorant.

Z_End's picture

Then I would say you are hearing what you want to hear. He is alive and well, and I suspect will be helping to release more interesting info very soon.

Paranoia around here becoming a self feeding entity.
Not saying a certain degree of paranoia isn't healthy...
It just has to be tempered with an equal degree of common sense.
So much out there is paranoia purely for the sake of it. Knee jerk. Ditto with false flags and other Ops.
At this point the Man doesn't even need to pull false flags and other psychological ops because a huge section of the population defaults to that assumption.

The danger here is that...it was their point all along.
They've openly stated that you will know when they've succeeded when you can no longer tell the difference between lie and truth.
That's paraphrasing, but you should be able to get the point.
We are basically there now.

I know they can work wonders with audio and now video but I pray that he is alive.

DjangoCat's picture

Needs more evidence.  Some of the video where he points to Hillary classified (C) emails I have seen some time ago.  Not convinced, but we can hope.

decon's picture

Of course he is.  He's got his finger on the deadman switch for devastating information and they know it.

besnook's picture

the msm has spent millions shoring up their evil russia meme for the cunt and her zionazi cabal. they won't back down in the face of the facts. the truth is just another pawn to them.

Funny, it's like the CIA is trained to lie.

no one will listen, but thanks for trying, Julian.

the narrative is set in stone now

OK..maybe "irrelevant" too strong...it's just I need some action here besides all the hype. I just can't see any prosecutable potential here, esp with DOJ bought & paid for. Maybe "forgery" or pandering or perjury or some silly shit, but they won't even do that. Any lawyers out ther? Could Tump DOJ bring charges?

scraping_by's picture

The fog of lies sliding us into the Iraq war was mostly low level officials threatened by Bolton, Cheney, and Rice. Barry wants to repeat, 'We create out own reality.'

----_-'s picture

"I just can't see any prosecutable potential here"


do you know what i see? i see a chip under your skin. you sill dont have it but if you dont see any reason to percecute and arrest criminals like obama then you are qualified to say what the 99% always say: "iahhhh and meeeeeh"

because people who dont like to prosecute illegal criminals like obama are doomed to be chipped by the same illegal criminals


good luck

scraping_by's picture

Note that for all the grovelling, Comey never did anything legally irreversable. The evidence is still in the file, so prosecution is still on the table. And will be for a few years, yet.

cosmictrainwreck's picture

HUH?? I simply asked WHO THE FUCK is gonna prosecute? I personally don't work for DOJ
