Wikileaks – Research – Part 2 of 2


While conducting vetting research, I came across this recent attack on Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. It is of note because of who she is and Voice America sponsoring her , along with Oprah favoring her.
========
While discussing the bust of the Silk Road, Alvarez goes out of his way to link Assange and Snowden to the Silk Road.

BTW, a quick side note; this guy has an eerie profile that matches guys like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, which makes me wonderer we are getting a peek into a generational shift in thinking about markets and the government that could have some really scary consequences.

Ahh yea, like scary young lonely white guys

with the smarts to cause some serious damage

and who are up to no good. Somebody get them a girl friend, please.

The program concludes by joking   about the silk road is what happens when young people do not have jobs.

John McAfee October 11, 2013 – The Costa Report
@ 1:37:00 Mentions Julian and Snowden
segment begins @ 1:35:00
It is the closing segment to the show.

She is best known for her controversial book, The Watchman’s Rattle, which offers an evolutionary explanation for modern problems such as government gridlock, terrorism, obesity, the decline in education, violence, etc.

and The New York Times speculated whether Costa would be “Oprah’s Next Star.”[6]
The success of  The Watchman’s Rattle  led to a syndicated weekly radio news program called  The Costa Report. The program is characterized by its nonpartisan nature. Each week Costa interviews newsmakers ranging from  Ron Paul,[23]  Pat Buchanan,[24]  Vint Cerf,[25]  and  Alan Dershowitz[26]  to  Michael Dukakis,[27]  John R. Bolton[28]  and  Noam Chomsky,[29]  in search of solutions to global challenges. The program is in its third season and airs in Chicago,[30]  Seattle,[31]  Tucson,[32]  San Jose, Portland and other metro areas throughout the United States.[33]
In 2011,  The Costa Report  was syndicated by The Business TalkRadio Network  [34]  and VoiceAmerica.[35]

Wikileaks – Research – Part 1 of 2


Chief Joseph Nez Perce ... No. 2 U.S. official...

Astroturfing- Astroturfing Syndicate

To many these terms may be new or even unknown.

Astroturfing is defined by Wikipedia as:

Astroturfing is the practice of masking the sponsors of a message (e.g. political, advertising, or public relations) to give the appearance of it coming from a disinterested, grassroots participant.

Syndicate is defined by Wikipedia as:

A syndicate is a self-organizing group of individuals, companies, corporations or entities formed to transact some specific business, or to promote a common interest. In most cases formed groups aim to scale up their profits. Although there are many legal syndicates formed around the world, people tend to link the term syndicate to various criminal activities.

Astroturfing Syndicate would be the combination of the two

Organized groups of individuals, companies, corporations or entities that practice the masking of sponsors of a message to give the appearance of it coming from a disinterested, grassroots participants.

Defining social behavior in the digital realm is processing at a very quick pace. In addition, as the digital space becomes more ingrained with daily lives the effects are felt across the human spectrum. In fact, many people do not go one single day without hearing an audio clip or viewing a video clip. Moreover, those that do not luxuriate within the internet are encapsulated into the digital realm by television and or radio. Eventually, all are encapsulated because even if the person lives in a remote location, those that govern are encapsulated into the digital age.

In essence digital media on the internet is more permanent than that which is not. An individual can listen to a recording made 2 years ago as easily as one made last week, especially if the information is mirrored or the site that hosts it is maintained.

As a criminologist the sociology aspect of this is profound and ground breaking.

Many people witnessed the James Clapper lies to congress. Many people witnessed James Clapper confess to perjury when Clapper said that he had chosen “I thought was the most truthful or least most untruthful manner” when he testified.

Yet, he has not been charged. However, astroturfing syndicates engage in a form of witness intimidation.

That is one notable example many have knowledge of from their own digital experiences. Yet, there are many crimes the general population witness, such as crimes committed by BP during the oil spill clean-up of the US Gulf Coast region, that are not as globally known, but very well-known regionally nonetheless. Astroturfing syndicates are engaging in witness cowing and intimidation.

It would be naïve, if not unbalanced to think that the cowing and intimidation patterns do not go from digital to non-digital instances.

Witness intimidation is a crime.

Research has shown that astroturfers seek out individuals to cow and intimidate. That criminal anti-social behavior is called stalking, be it digital or non-digital.

  • The free chat service is shut down due to abuse.
    • September 23 , 2013
    • waiting on reply for request of time-line
      • excerpt from request:
        • Due to the nature of spanking large companies with deep pockets and addressing corruption in general, The Julia Clark Organization has endured maleficence, directly and indirectly, against The JC Organization, peripheral structures, and our people.I am interested in knowing the time line of abuses; If possible the nature of the abuses and any other information surrounding the maleficence.

The Wikileaks Organization

  • Had IRC for many years
    • I am not familiar with the exact number of years
  • systematically targeted
    • Server attacked repeatedly, making TOR the only option
    • TOR nodes were destabilize until they were inoperable – repeatedly
    • Web-based chat attacked by Astroturfs , and Social Engineers with the intent make Wikileaks look bad and harm Wikileaks and supporters
      • closed web-based IRC October 13 , 2013

Wikileaks Organization and The Julia Clark Organization

  • The Julia Clark Organization contacted Wikileaks via Mr. Julian Assange and the Ecuadorian embassy via H.E. Ana Albán Mora to express unity in the support of human rights.

The Julia Clark Organization for over a year has inspected and regarded The Wikileaks Organization. During this time The Julia Clark Organization has explored the fundamentals of Wikileaks. Though enjoyable task, Wikileaks is a very serious landscape. Observations have been limited to Wikileaks proper with a minor outlay into the Wikileaks party and its rift.

The Julia Clark Organization will publish limited discoveries, draw and develop in-depth studies , and broaden the scope of observations as time and funds permit.
