Freedom of Press Foundation, PayPal and the Pierre Omidyar Connection

In recent days, the Freedom of Press Foundation dropped its support of Wikileaks and it’s founder Julian Assange’s legal fund citing ““FPF’s board unanimously found — upon review of the available evidence — that the financial blockade by the major payment processors is no longer in effect, and as such, we will soon cease processing donations on behalf of WikiLeaks readers, as stated by Trevor Timm.”  (Washington Times article ) This being said, the truth is far from this statement as the U.S. DoJ continues to seek prosecution of Wikileaks staff and Assange as well as the government advocating the end of Wikileaks donations through the introduction of new bills like Section 623 of the Intel Act of 2018.

The question is why would an organization originally founded by Julian Assange for the sole purpose of receiving donations decide to end such support?  The answer lies in a man named Pierre Odiymar who is known for founding the site Ebay and for his board position at PayPal, and also created the Intercept news organization.  He is a Clinton Foundation donor ( link to article 55 million donation by Pierre Omidyar ) and donated well over 100k to the Anti-Trump super pac.( link here: Omidyar gives 100 k to Anti_Trump Super Pac ).

Pierre’s blatant hatred of free speech (unless it supports his political views), is seen here in his Twitter feed.

When he refers to Nazis, he is asking for the free speech of “Conservatives” and those who disagree with him to be silenced.  So how can a man who so blatantly disagrees with Free Speech have any influence on an organization that claims to advocate it and support journalists who are being persecuted? Follow the money.

According to this article Keeping Secrets , Omidyar paid Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald 250k to join the Intercept, both of whom are on the board of directors at FPF.  If you look at this graph, Micah F Lee another board member is paid a large sum of money through First Look Media, also of Pierre Omidyar fame.  DS4H260XUAANv7-.jpgDS4H260XUAANv7-.jpgDS4OVimXkAArl7g.jpg

Laura Poitras of “Risk” and “Citizen 4” fame also received funds for the documentary “Risk” about Julian Assange. She went back to edit it and smeared the editor of Wikileaks.  DS4H260XUAANv7-.jpg

Up until a few months ago, the Intercept’s funding was public which showed financial resources coming from Pierre Omidyar’s NASDAQ securities. Removing this, is simply a publicity stunt in order that Omidyar can distance himself from the Intercept and appear to have no influence on its journalists.

Omidyar, who publicly smears President Trump has in essence declared war on Wikileaks before through the bank blockade of 2010 as PayPal was involved in that scandal as well.  The only reason for dropping support of Wikileaks is purely political in nature and may very well be instrumented by the Clintons themselves. It is obvious that Omidyar is using a strategy presented in the “Wikileaks Threat” to take down his opponents.  ( Wikileaks Threat pdf ).  Here is the strategic planning by these three “intel” organizations ( Palantir Technology, HBGary & Berico Holdings) in 2010 used by Bank of America and other banking structures.


Wikileaks relies completely on contributions from donations through our support. If you can convince supporters by making their donations appear illegal, you can destroy an organization. Also, by pushing a false narrative through the media that Wikileaks received their leaks in 2016 from Russia, you can remove far left supporters of the agency.  Creating stories and spreading this disinformation has become a regular occurrence with media organizations in the United States recently and has infected free press and free speech.

Recently, Micah F Lee has slandered the editor of Wikileaks on Twitter and is currently trying to smear his reputation.  This also is included in the “Wikileaks Threat.”DRiIN_RV4AA8_xN (2).jpg

There is no truth in this claim as allegations were dropped by Sweden in May of 2017.  This is clearly slander and libel and promotes defamation of character by a board member and is very unprofessional on his part. He also has made it evident on Twitter that he does not support free speech unless it is his own as seen here. 1_HJYAvErrBp78jw6y54G6Iw.jpeg

This is also evidence of the possible strategy being used by federal agencies to crush the Wikileaks media framework and further dismantle support and morale. Why would a good upstanding foundation allow a board member to behave so unprofessionally without consequence? Is this a case of “Follow the money” where big corporations use their power and funds to control good causes.

The biggest critics in 2010 of the Wikileaks bank blockade are now funded by none other than Pierre himself as seen in the chart below. This is an obvious attempt to silence the critics that are against his Wikileaks agenda.DS4TBTnXUAEeozp

Is it not obvious that Omidyar’s involvement in the dropping of Wikileaks support by the Freedom of the Press Foundation is a business ethical code violation and conflict of interest on his part. Is there a connection to all of this and the DNC and Podesta emails released prior to the election? Has FPF sold out to the DNC and Paypal? Is there evidence of play to pay?

They say “Money Talks and People Walk” and the strategy to take down Wikileaks as definitely put stress on the media organization financially.  It is now evident who is behind this new “blockade”. the FPF’s disenchantment is obviously based on funding from Omidyar.  How better to get the board to back down from their own ethics than to offer a substantial sum of money in the form of wages?

Needless to say, this dropping of funds by FPF should make patrons stronger in their support of this persecuted institute that has never been wrong in 11 years.


Freedom of the Press Foundation, Wikileaks Threat PDF and the Strategy To Bring Wikileaks To Its Knees

In recent weeks, Freedom of the Press has chosen to end its five-year stint as a surrogate for Wikileaks donations.  According to the Washington Times, (article seen here Washington Times articles ) FPF dropped them because ““FPF’s board unanimously found — upon review of the available evidence — that the financial blockade by the major payment processors is no longer in effect, and as such, we will soon cease processing donations on behalf of WikiLeaks readers,”  Trevor Timm, the foundation’s director, wrote in a Dec. 9 email to WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.  

But is this the real reason for the sudden unanimous decision by the board to end support? Is it possible that the Freedom of Press Foundation dropped support for Wikileaks due to a strategy outlined in the “Wikileaks Threat” PDF? (Seen here Wikileaks Threat link )  Did an agency of the US use this strategy to turn the board of directors at FPF against it’s Founder?  I have included a copy of part of the strategy used by First of America in 2010  and the following intel agencies ( Palantir Technology, HBGary & Berico Holdings) in hopes of destroying Wikileaks.  As you know, this strategy didn’t work.



Is it possible that the board voted unanimously because they were pushed and chose professional preservation over their own belief system?   In February of 2017, Wikileaks and Julian Assange began running #Vault7 revealing CIA documents exposing 4th amendment violations of US citizens privacy.  These documents also showed the incompetence of this agency and was an embarrassment to the organization.  Was there response to use this strategy to destroy Wikileaks and put doubts in the minds of moderate supporters?

Did the CIA fuel the fire by pushing the “Russia” narrative on to the left-leaning board members in order to further sabotage their relationship with Assange? Was this all a plan to plant hatred in the minds of both sides? After all, Julian Assange founded the Freedom of the Press Foundation when the bank blockade of Wikileaks took place.  How better to bring down the morale of the staff and the editor himself than to pressure the foundation into dropping their support?

Is the “Russian” witch hunt more than just a plan to impeach Trump but to also put an end to the existence of Wikileaks and its director Julian Assange? Many of the directors were unhappy with the results of the election and the media placing the blame on Wikileaks would further feed the fire.

How better to slander the name of the editor and publisher of #Vault7 then to have his own colleagues defame his name on social media? The CIA would not hesitate to use such a strategy against what they think of as a foe, so why not?

Media already has pushed a disinformation campaign against Wikileaks in the past and continues to spread false facts.  It wouldn’t be hard to push this in the right direction and disenchant those who are on the left to turn on WL.  It is already happening with the average liberal citizen so why not the FPF who are mostly Democrats? The CIA or other agencies could easily identify certain board members as potential turncoats, looking for behavior that would show doubt in Assange. Believing that Wikileaks would fold without the support of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, any smart intel organization would target such individuals with propaganda and pressure.

Will we ever know if this is the case?  Maybe not but then again, a lot of things come to light when we don’t expect them to.

Rumors About Julian Assange and Facts About the DoJ Possible Charges

In recent days, since Christmas when Julian Assange deleted his Twitter account, there have been rumors flying that include his possible “safe passage” to the US and that he is free.  However, they are just that, rumors.

I will explain why and also show you the possible charges the Department of Justice in the United States is looking at charging Wikileaks and Assange with.

First, let’s look at the current hearsay that Julian has received safe passage to the US via a Navy vessel to the United States and is currently in a “safe house” to testify.  The United States DoJ and CIA are wanting to arrest Wikileaks staff and Julian with charges,   including conspiracy, stealing of government property and/or violating the Espionage Act, because of the cables on war crimes in 2010. (See Washington Post article Justice Department Debate ).  President Trump in April responded to the question whether or not the DoJ should pursue reopening the case with “Go ahead”.There was never an offer from Assange to trade information for a pardon on the table as many fake news sites reported.  The United States government still wants to arrest Assange and put him behind bars for being a publisher.

Therefore, the idea that he is in the United States under protective custody is not only false but a blatant lie.

For whatever reason Assange deleted his Twitter account on Christmas Day, it has nothing to do with rumors that he is exchanging information with the United States.  The United States continues to seek extradition of Wikileaks staff and Julian Assange.Also, people who are close to Julian would sound the alarm had  Mr. Assange disappeared.  First of all, his mother would contact every news source she could I am sure. He has close friends and staff members who contact him frequently and they would’ve been up in arms.

So, let’s put this to rest now and sleep easy. Julian is safe in the Embassy as he has been. No worries.

Catalonia Update: Interview with @DemocracyInCatalonia

spain-destroyed-catalonia-crisis-1100279.jpgSome are wondering what is happening in Catalonia since they voted for independence in October and Spain called for a special election. Well, I reached out on Twitter to my Catalan followers and received several responses.  Here is the most detailed response I have received so far:

Angel Fox: Can you tell me what the current situation in Catalonia is?


  1. The current situation is the following: After the referendum on 1 October, the Spanish state initiated a legal offensive. It began before actually. But it hardened after the referendum. Jailing all of the Catalan independence movement leadership became the goal of State prosecutors. The crimes of rebellion, sedition, misappropriations are being used against the former government ministers. Some are in prison in Madrid, some have fled to Belgium. The Spanish government triggered article 155 of the constitution () removing self-rule from Catalonia, but also calling elections. Presumably, Rajoy called elections early on as a result of pressures from the EU (or let’s say Germany), but those would have been in private. The official line so far in Europe is: “we don’t meddle in (other) member states internal affairs”. Anyway, as expected the elections yielded a parliament that looks pretty much the same as the previous one, with some minor changes.

  2. Ciudadanos now concentrates the unionist vote. The unionist vote has been mobilised through Catalan bashing and outrageous lying in the Madrid media. Most mother-tongue Spanish speakers is Catalonia are unionist leaning and get their news from the Madrid media as Catalan media is in Catalan language. They are also generally first or second generation immigrants from other parts of Spain that live in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, the so called industrial belt, aslo know as red belt (beacuse they used to vote socialist) and now called orange belt because they vote Ciudadanos.. in Catalan elections, not Spanish elections, where they vote Podemos.

  3. Anyway, Ciudadanos was the most voted party, and the PP collapsed in Catalonia.

  4. So, the pro-independence camp won again with Puigdemont’s party getting over 21% and Junqueras getting 21% too. But Puigdemont is in Belgium and Junqueras in prison.

  5. On 4 January there will be a hearing and the possibility that the judge may release Junqueras who has now been re-elected to take his seat in parliament… personally I don’t expect it to happen. The investiture session is meant to take place on the 17th, and there is talk of Puigdemont being made president by parliament remotely, I guess in writing or videoconference somehow. But the constitutional court will probably not allow that. 19 of the newly elected members of parliament are facing trials and long prison terms..

What will the government do..? I don’t know. It will depend on a variety of pressures and calculations. As important as what the government does right now is what the judiciary does. How directly does the government control prosecutors and judges is not completely clear to me. On the one hand they do appoint them and they share this fanatical ideology about Spanish unity. So with prosecutors, there’s a chain of command and they obey the minister who obeys Rajoy. With judges, be it the supreme court or audiencia nacional, they too are political appointees. But I don’t know if they can just get told what to do..

Angel Fox: What do you see the Spanish government doing next?

@DemocracyInCatalonia: So, I guess I’m not answering your second question. I guess they would like to find a way of stabilizing the situation and to recover normality. Their international standing has taken a hit. Spain is no longer that “friendly albeit sort of average western-European country”, they care about reputation that’s for sure, but Spanish unity is even more important. I am 40 years old, I’ve been living in Barcelona for 18 years, I’m culturally Spanish (as opposed to Catalan), half-Irish (hence my English).. anyway, these are completely unchartered waters for us.

Angel Fox: How are the Catalan people responding to the current situation?

@DemocracyInCatalonia: As to the last question, very quickly: On the pro-independence side there is a very high degree of determination, it has become a question of democracy and dignity. On the unionist side, it is very confusing.. mainly many people who are not usually political have been mobilized to vote through the demonization of separatism by the media. The challenge for the independence movement is to make greater inroads amongst Spanish speakers and convince them about the virtues of the Catalan Republic as a democratic project on which to build the kind of decent society which is impossible within the Spanish state.

It is clear to me that the Catalan people are not giving up. However, the Spanish government is clearly fascist and Rajoy, as a dictator, intends to try and squash their victory and his call for a new election backfired.  President Puigdemont will continue his presidency in exile until these issues can be resolved.  Hopefully, it is done peacefully for the sake of my friends in Catalonia. Peace be with you and love.2017-02-05_lif_27997581_I1.JPG

Lauri Love’s Case and the Need for a Trial At Home

You probably haven’t heard of Lauri Love and if you have, you probably just know about the case for a trial in the UK rather than the United States.  Yet there is more to this man than meets the eye.  He is and was a political activitist. He is most well known for his role in the student and Occupy Movement in Glasgow during 2011- 2012.  He is prominent in the hacking and surveillance online community and has Asperger’s syndrome. This would hinder him in any US prison and American confinement does not treat conditions like his. In fact, a man like Lauri would be at high risk of suicide in this type of situation.images (4).jpg

There is also a big difference in length of sentence between the United Kingdom and the US.  The US is extremely harsh on people like Lauri, whistleblowers and leakers.  Lauri would face at least a 99 year sentence under US laws.  In the UK, he would probably get a much shorter sentence that would include months rather than years.

The fact is that if a person committed a normal crime in Britain like rape or breaking or entering, they would not be extradited to another country to face charges even if the offense was against an individual from a foreign country.  Lauri Love faces extradition to the US due to his involvement in OpLastResort, an alleged crime committed in England  not the United States.  Even though this crime was against the government in the US, it should be tried where it happened.  lauri_love.jpg

Lauri is severely depressed and needs our support.  We need to stand up against his extradition and end his persecution by the US government’s cruel treatment of people like Love.


Open Letter to the Freedom of Press Foundation Regarding Wikileaks


John Cusack, Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, John Perry Barlow, Edward Snowden, Daniel Ellsberg, Rainey Reitman and Micah Lee:twitter_banner.width-1600.png

It has come to my attention that you have dropped Wikileaks as one of your sponsorships.  According to your website, your mission statement is worded as such:

Our Mission. Freedom of the Press Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping support and defend public-interest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption, and law-breaking in government.

If you truly believe in your statement, you would not have dropped Wikileaks and it’s founder Julian Assange as they are being persecuted by a corrupt and law-breaking government (The United States).  Instead, you have bowed to their political pressure and have shown that you do not follow your own mission.  Julian Assange helped establish your foundation and you choose to treat him like a dirty rag and toss him to the side.  You obviously do not appreciate those who have helped you.DRiIN_RV4AA8_xN.jpg

On top of this, you have allowed Micah Lee to make derogatory, defaming statements about Assange on Twitter.  He deserves to be sued for libel and slander for making such horrific statements, not to mention fired and yet he is still on your board.  This shows the public you are unworthy of further donations.  I wish you the best in your endeavors, whatever the hell they may be.  As for myself and Wikileaks supporters, we will be boycotting you as you are not what you say you are.

WikiLeaks Loses Freedom of the Press for their Donations

Recently the Freedom of the Press Foundation announced it would no longer be taking WikiLeaks donations and redistributing to them.  Julian helped found this organization in  2012 in response to the banking blockade imposed by the likes of Visa, PayPal, etc on the publishing agency in response to documentation released at the time.  This is a statement regarding the FPF’s decision by Assange.DRV2lnlWsAAVQRU

The statement released by the FPF in the Washington Times article Wikileaks Loses Support is as follows:

“FPF’s board unanimously found — upon review of the available evidence — that the financial blockade by the major payment processors is no longer in effect, and as such, we will soon cease processing donations on behalf of WikiLeaks readers,” Trevor Timm, the foundation’s director, wrote in a Dec. 9 email to WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.

In my firm opinion, FPF has bowed to political pressure and we should no longer support any of its functions.  They are traitors to their cause and to their founder.  Snowden is on the board and refuses to comment on this catastrophe.  After January 1st, they will no longer be a funnel for Wikileaks.

Another quote from the Washington Times:

“The pressure against WikiLeaks, its staff and its allies has increased as a result of our CIA and Democratic party publications,” Mr. Assange wrote in the email.

“The FPF faces criticism for receiving donations on our behalf, but that is its function,” wrote Mr. Assange. “If it bows to political pressure it becomes part of the problem it was designed to solve and yet another spurious free speech organization—of which there are plenty.”

Regardless, this is just another attempt by the Deep State, CIA and our lovely Congress to destroy a media organization that should be protected by the First Amendment under free press.  I personally find this violation of my rights revolting and think it is time something is done by “We The People” to end this persecution.  Stand with myself and other supporters by boycotting the Freedom of the Press Foundation.8f085bcd676dd08204e847d8031e4a27--keep-fighting-inspiring-quotes

To the President Regarding the Recent Break In at a Wikileaks Office

Dear Mr. President:

It has been brought to our attention that the CIA may have entered a Wikileaks without permission to seize information. ( See attached: article on break-in )  This is not right. If they did so, it is completely illegal and is also morally wrong as it is stealing.  I ask that you speak to the head of the CIA about this and reprimand this action.  As a citizen of the United States I feel this is an overreach of the CIA’s power.  What are they trying to prove?

If it were not for last year’s releases on Clinton and the DNC this administration may very well have lost and we would be stuck with Hillary destroying our nation as did her predecessor.  We are thankful to Wikileaks for helping to save America from her greedy grasp and thankful that you are President.  We ask that you show your appreciation to Wikileaks and Julian Assange by pardoning all of them of any crimes they may have committed.  If you choose to, you can issue a preemptive pardon regarding them.

Wikileaks is simply a publisher and Julian Assange it’s editor.  All they have done is what the Washington Post and the New York Times has done in the past.  They distributed documents given to them.  This is protected by the First Amendment which reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

I am disgusted by the violation of this amendment and its breach of my rights.  Even though Wikileaks is a foreign agency, the right to free press and free speech covers them because I have a right to it.  Congress and the CIA have continually targeted WikiLeaks because they are afraid of exposure I believe.  It is time for this witch hunt to stop.  As you know, #Russiagate is nothing more than a fake inquisition to impeach you and try to jail the innocent.

We the People are tired of this joke of a probe for something that simply does not exist except on the other side.  Please speak with the head of the CIA and to Congress members to end this farce.

Thank you

Open Letter to the Senate Intel Committee Regarding Wikileaks and It’s Supporters


It has come to my attention, that recently, this Committee has not only been targeting WikiLeaks but also it’s supporters.  It appears that you have forgotten your vows to uphold the Constitution in doing so.  Not only have you violated the First Amendment Right to free speech and free press but you have violated the American People’s 4th amendment rights to privacy.  I am completely disgusted with this committee and feel that it’s members should resign immediately.

The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States clearly states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

When you attack Wikileaks, you attack the press.  Wikileaks has never had to retract a story in 11 years and has won all court cases that challenged the authenticity of its documents.  The only reason you are aiming at Wikileaks is because you know it has exposed government corruption, war crimes and your own ineptitude.  We The People deserve transparency and to know when our own government is committing crimes against us as well as other people in the world.  Your obvious witch hunt will only lead to the prosecution of innocent people who only wanted the truth to be seen and heard.

Recently, Diane Feinstein requested the Direct Messages of Julian Assange and Wikileaks from Twitter.  This included American citizens messages and is an encroachment on the 4th amendment and our rights to privacy.  By looking at personal messages, you infringe upon our personal space and We The People are not happy about this.  It is none of your business what a private citizen chooses to disclose to Wikileaks or Assange.  You were not elected to violate our rights as voters in this country.

I demand that you stop this witch hunt and close this investigation immediately and cease from targeting US Citizens and the press.  Remember, we  put you in office to represent us, you are not rulers of the people.

Thank you

A Concerned Citizen


In Response to the Recent Targeting of Myself and Another Individual

I will continue my support of Julian Assange and Wikileaks regardless to the current allegations that I am not a supporter but simply a troll.  It doesn’t matter if you hate me or not, my heart is not changed by other’s direct targeting.  Divide and Conquer is the psyops used by the US government to destroy Wikileaks support. I will not fall victim to this style of childish hatred and mayhem.

Julian Assange and Wikileaks has my utmost respect due to the fact they tell the truth.  They are my heroes and are the people I look up to.  Very few people have my total respect let alone my sincere devotion and backing.  Christmas is coming and I would hope that peace on earth will prevail amongst all of us. If this cannot then so be it. I can only control my own behavior and no one else’s attitudes or feelings.

Currently, we need to support Julian all the more as his 7 year detainment anniversary is right around the corner. Why is this man not free yet?  Why does the US government continue to harass and seek his arrest? This man is a publisher and editor nothing else.  He is no different than the editor of any national newspaper except that the CIA wants to bring his organization down for exposing the truth.
