Yesterday, there was a lot of talk about Assange leaking something especially damaging to Hillary....

Today, nothing.

Wonder what happened?

Last I heard (NPR this morning) he is postponing the release until December.

It operates with best value as a distraction to the media, i.e., something's coming, then maybe coming, then not coming, then speculation on whether they have anything meaningful, probably not, etc.

The narrative steals energy from other memes, such as, for example, the issue of Trump's taxes. Seen in this way, the tax leak helps Trump. There's no more mystery, ordinary people are not outraged, the story gets out, Trump is not seen as dishonestly hiding anything anymore. It's out. The Democrats have lost the power on the meme.

Similarly, if WikiLeaks does a dump, then the value is taken into account by the market. The narrative power associated with the "mystery" of what might be coming, ends.

Contributionally, attention and concern for Assange also ends.

I thought it was due out tomorrow. If it is postponed until December, then that sounds like it's a lot of nothing.

Rumor has it that it was going to be about her bad heart valve, but there is so many things, who knows.......

Oh, supposedly thursday. But it also has been rumored that he has been threatened with a drone strike....

To sharpen the point: it's not going to further Julian's goals for himself if he is d-e-a-d.

Think Obama didn't drop him a line? Release hacked materials that mess with our election and you will be buried at sea.

It turned out to be Trump's tax return

The month is young. You know the POS/DOO is not going to step away from the dirty tricks.

I think they have the judgment to identify actual threats to our state and the will to take them out.

Like the Donald says, she's not very nice.

How is releasing info of corruption of a politician a threat to our state ? I would consider it a threat to our state by not releasing the info....

I don't see why, if he's unwilling to stand on the balcony, this would interfere with releasing the documents.

And fear of a U.S. drone strike? In London? On a foreign embassy? BS. The guy is looking less and less credible.

The month is not over, but still.

Assange jumped the shark for me a while back. His idee fixe' on Hillary is just odd, given the real issues in the US and the world.

Fellas! Our Psycho red is the one who suggested the drone strike. Relax.

The lack of a document release after the manufactured rumour of one will play into Donald's hands just as well.

Your link doesn't go anywhere. The one in post #16 does.

Don't you ever get tired of being manipulated by people who make stuff up?

Maybe this is it. Pay to play for banks.

eta: although it came across my RT app today, this appears to be somewhat old news. . .

What does that RT stand for? "Russia Today"isn't it? They have some pretty good stuff but when it comes to US politics, I sometimes wonder if Putin writes it himself.

Russia today. Ya, they can have an anti us bias, especially when it comes to Syria and the ME in general. Since I posted this they have reissued the story with comments from the dnc. The hacker, guccifer, has released legit stuff in the past. This time either he/she has been fooled, is lying or the dnc is lying.

RonW and his tribe do not accept the legitimacy of snopes.com or any other fact-checking organization. They are all a bunch of Libtards don'tcha know?
