Julian Assange trying tell the whole world he is not a stooge of Trump? Try again …

New Trump book “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff. Full PDF: https://t.co/sf7vj4IYAx
— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) January 7, 2018
Fire and Fury has become an instant best-seller since it went on sale on Friday, with hard copies sold out in many stores within an hour.
Mr Trump has begun legal action against the author, seeking to discredit the book’s allegations against him as fake and disputing Mr Wolff’s claim that he personally interviewed the President before writing the book.
Now, in an unprecedented move, Wikileaks has posted a link on Twitter to a Google Drive document that appears to contain the entire manuscript, although it is unclear whether it is the final version that went to publication.
WikiLeaks has given no explanation for its move.
It is unclear whether it was seeking to undermine the book’s sales or simply provide an alternative copy of the book, since it sold out.
But it is the second time WikiLeaks has apparently supported the US President.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, the whistleblowing site published a substantial number of embarrassing emails from Hillary Clinton that undermined her campaign for the presidency.
Meanwhile, Mr Trump’s own tweets appear to have contributed to boosting the book’s sales, at least according to some customers who bought it.
“I hate paying retail price for anything, but I made an exception buying this book because Trump wanted to stop its publication,” wrote one reviewer on Amazon.com.
“In essence, I bought the book precisely to spite Trump. Hopefully the author will donate a portion of the proceeds to the movement to impeach Trump.”
“Good Read. Probably wouldn’t have ever read thanks for the book suggestion Donald,” wrote another.
Eighty-five per cent of reviewers have given the book a 5-star rating, although US media have reported that Amazon was deleting many negative reviews.
Many buyers are still scathing of the book.
“Not worth wasting your time reading this nonsense. Instead should of bought a box of chocolates,” wrote one.
“I found the writing difficult. There are too many grammatical errors and run-on sentences. Have your dictionary ready. He likes to show how smart he is by using pretentious words. I hoped this would be a fun read but after chapter one, I returned it for a refund,” said another.
Tonight’s Wikileaks PDF drop of Wolff’s book has inserted Q’s into the titles of chapters 6 & 10
O’s have been removed and replaced with Q’s
Chapter 6 ‘HQME’
Chapter 10 ‘GQLDMAN’
610 is the ‘Julian’ year. Google it if you want proof.
megalynn44: What are those two chapters about?
Ninjakick666: The version cryptome is housing has the same Q in those two titles also.
vts845: where was posted?
edit: find on cryptome twitter, mine was with “O” O’s. reading in a pc, so it can be a device issue?
edit2: i thought that they where on the index, but they are on the title of the chapters… my mistake
couchumina: So WikiLeaks has gone from leaking emails to leaking copyright books. Wonder why they posted a book costing it sales that’s bagging out Trump . Whats the point of posting this book on there site ?
pby1000: It is strange that the pages are not numbered. Chapter 6 starts on 91/327 and Chapter 10 starts on 146/327.
heresmything: Was it a bad OCR scan?
Odor_punchout_16: Year 610 Apr 6 Lailat-ul Qadar, night koran descended to Earth
dankmanstan: Wikileaks is so pro Trump it is pathetic
dagonn3: I heard that’s in the real book too, at least for chapter 6.
Why does Wikileaks trigger outcry?
Whenever I defend WikiLeaks, some American comes in with an ad hominem attack that I’m a Trump supporter. Can someone explain to me why so many Americans consider WikiLeaks to be supporting Trump?
Just to refresh your memories, WikiLeaks has informed the world about
- Swiss banks and tax avoidance
- Secret American Congressional Reports
- Scientology Leaks
- American War Crimes in Iraq
- Afghanistan and Iraq War Logs
- Guantanamo Files
- NSA Mass Surveillance here and here
- TPP Documents and TTIP Documents
- Saudi Diplomatic Cables
- The IMF and the Greek Crisis
At this point everyone was loving WikiLeaks. There’s even plenty there for Americans that are only concerned with with issues that narrowly affect themselves. At that point almost everyone was supporting WL, and daily we had people from the deep state in the MSM calling for Assange to be killed, WL to be shut, calling WL criminal, that they need to be exterminated, etc. WL was considered one of the greatest forces in journalism and politics in history, with impeccable honesty.
And then the DNC and Hillary leaks happened. That alone was enough to convince many people that the MSM and the Deep State had been right all along about WL. Now here is full of people convinced that the mere fact that WL accepted the Hillary-related leaks and published then somehow proves they support Trump and they’re run by the Russians.
Well you know what? If you believe that, you’ve swallowed the MSM propaganda hook, line and sinker. I’m not sure why anyone who believes there’s some connection between WL, Trump and Russia is even here — an independent media organisation that has done an enormous amount to enlighten genuine, bona-fide conspiracies–you’ve fallen for the Republican/Democratic false dichotomy pushed by the MSM, the idea that those two parties are somehow different and not two heads of the same devil, you’ve fallen for the MSM propaganda that WikiLeaks–who revealed war crimes under Bush, tax avoidance, global trade deals that only benefit the extremely rich, global mass surveillance by the West–are somehow some kind of evil organisation. If you’ve fallen for the MSM propaganda that WikiLeaks works for Trump and Russia simply because of the Hillary-related leaks.
Instead of listening to and believing the MSM uncritically, maybe you should stop to consider well-repected independent journalists and commentators; people like Robert Parry‘s site about “Russiagate”; people like Seymour Hersch; Max Blumenthal; Ron Paul; and that’s just off the top of my head.
So next time someone defends WikiLeaks, stop your gob before you accuse that person of being a Trump supporter.
whiterabbitobj46: Assange is of course a f–king Russian plant.
SJWPussyLibtard: Sorry dude but it’s beyond obvious that Wikileaks has been working on behalf of Russia and Trump for the past couple years. We all saw the direct messages between Wikileaks and Trump Jr. People keep pretending that was just some innocent back and forth and yet wikileaks didn’t reach out to any other campaign. Nor did they tell them what and when to push stories.
Wikileaks lied about Russia being a source for them. They’ve said “yeah we can’t tell you who the source is but it’s *definitely* not Russia. Seth who? Seth Rich? I dunno man, not Russia though.” Too bad Papadopulous knew Russia had stolen emails months before Wikileaks dropped them for Russia.
Remember the pussy grabbing tape? Literally 1 hour after that tape came out, Wikileaks scrambled to their computers and released a bunch of Podesta emails. Oh thanks Wikileaks, what a desperate attempt to soften the blow for Trump. Julian has also said they never sit on information or time their releases. Yeah well that’s a lie too.
All you have to do is just look at their Twitter and it’s obvious that they spend all their time sucking Trump and Putins dick and shitting on their enemies. Wikileaks even bad mouthed the Panama papers because they mentioned Putin. What a joke. A company all for transparency talking shit about the Panama papers.
Wikileaks doesn’t give a f–k about transparency. All they care about is furthering an agenda. And that agenda is pro Putin and pro Trump.
MoronToTheKore: I dunno, man, I find it kinda hard to believe Wikileaks only had damaging information on Hillary during this 2016 campaign. If an ex-MI6 agent can figure out an entire narrative, what might people have sent to Wikileaks?
And if Wikileaks chose not to divulge that info…
Seems like as of the last two years there has been a shift in Wikileaks behavior. What was once something I admired is now something that seems suspect.
It isn’t partisan behavior to recognize Wikileaks has changed.
swordofdamocles42: i used to defend WL too… but its a limited hangout they have released nothing of real importance to the big picture. while also gatekeeping who knows how many REAL whistleblowers.
Golden_Shart: Because everyone knows WikiLeaks has been compromised for a long ass time.
