Over this past weekend, reports of a massive “October surprise” from Wiki-Leaks and their founder Julian Assange began to make their way around the non main stream media. Reports varied on the precise details of the latest Wiki-Leaks data dump but one theme consistently remained: the Wiki-Leaks October Surprise was (and still is) about Hillary Clinton and was extremely damaging to her campaign.
The chain-of-events was relatively simple and went something like this:
- Wiki-Leaks announced via social media (since the traditional media attempted to hide the announcement) a press conference on Tuesday, October 4th that would include “damaging information” to the Hillary Clinton campaign. Julian Assange intended to deliver this announcement from the balcony of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where he has taken up asylum for the last number of years.
- On Monday morning, Wiki-Leaks announced a sudden cancellation of the planned event and revealed their decision to move the event to an “online announcement” citing “specific” security concerns without elaborating further.
- Throughout the day on Monday, reports began to emerge that highlighted Hillary Clinton’s previous, and potentially current attempts, to silence Wiki-Leaks – permanently. In 2010, multiple sources reported that Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, had proposed drone strikes on Assange to “silence him“. At that period in time, Wikileaks had made a similar announcement declaring their possession and imminent release of over 200,000 documents between State Department officials and a variety of foreign countries. ‘Can’t we just drone this guy?’ Clinton apparently asked during a staff meeting in 2010.
- On Tuesday, Hillary was asked about the reports and delivered a not-too-convincing, incoherent response where she said she couldn’t remember but if she did say order the assassination attempt it was clearly a “joke”. Video of her response is found below – watch her eyes as she begins her monologue.

While Hillary’s involvement in silencing the latest Wiki-Leaks data dump is unclear, what is abundantly clear is that Hillary and Bill’s pattern of silencing any and everyone who might get in their way has been exposed yet again. According to reports, Wiki-Leaks will reschedule their “discoveries” and will release them at some point before the November 8th election.
One can only hope Wiki-Leaks and their staff have invested in a bomb-proof bunker prior to revealing their October surprise, if history is any indication, the Clinton’s wont stop until they have been silenced for good.
