Guest Post: "The Hacker-Prank of The Brexit Do-Over Petition", by Tiffany Gabbay of Truth Revolt

This is an absolute must read as it is critical that you understand how the Financial-Political Complex works to subvert you through their willing accomplices in the "mainstream media".

You Know That Brexit 'Do-Over' Petition MSM Reports Has '3+ Million Signatures'? Well, It's a Hacker-Prank,

by, Tiffany Gabbay

As if we needed further proof that the mainstream media are barren of a single shred of journalistic integrity and that its members are in dire need of public flogging...

So desperate are media elite for a Brexit vote reversal that they are literally reporting lies as incontrovertible fact. No sooner had the majority of British voters made their voices heard with a vote to exit the European Union, than mainstream media at home and abroad begin peddling the narrative that Brits were "remorseful" over their decision and wanted a "do-over."

How on earth members of media knew precisely how millions of British voters felt in the 24 hours following the vote is beyond us. Perhaps they went door to door to ask. Perhaps they acquired new telepathic abilities. 

No. They just lied. As they always do. 

You've probably seen the popular story circulating MSM this weekend that claims a referendum petition is in the works calling for a Brexit re-vote and that it's garnered around 3 - 3.5 million signatories thus far. 

As recently as Monday, June 27, CNN reported that so many people rushed to sign the petition that the official government site where it is housed crashed. Yes, that's how badly MSM wants you to believe that Brits realized the "error of their ways" and that, despite their conclusive vote to exit the E.U., what Brits "really want" is a chance to re-cast their votes to "remain."

Worst of all was ABC's George Stephanopolous, who on Sunday touted the 3-million "strong" petition and who, along with guests, actually had the gall to say Britain's standing in the world has been, "slightly diminished" and that also diminished is the U.S.-Britain "special relationship." 

Only it turns out that many of the petition's signatories are fabricated in a prank engineered by hackers 4Chan and Anonymous (we are unclear if it is "the" Anonymous or just a lone hacker posting as "anonymous").

The blogHeatStreet did the journalistic work the BBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, SkyNews and just about every other mainstream outlet failed to do, exposing the petition's signatories as fraudulent. The site reports:

The BBC’s desperate shilling for Remain will come under increasing scrutiny as we exclusively reveal that the supposed ‘popular petition’ for a second referendum – wholly illegal and unworkable, and unprecedented in British history – is a prank by notorious sh*tposters 4 Chan.

The BBC, the UK’s national broadcaster, gleefully reported, as real, with no basic journalistic checks, an online petition that appeared to be growing at a colossal rate. By 1:30 pm, it was one of the fastest-growing petitions in history.

So fast, in fact, that somebody should have checked for bots and scripts. The BBC is failing totally in its Charter Duty to perform basic journalistic research.

HeatStreet provides a screenshot of the actual script used to fabricate the new Brexit re-call petition votes: 

HeatStreet rightfully boasts that it did the "basic journalistic work that the BBC failed to do" and that it alone brought readers "the proof that the spamming of the petition is a magnificent 4Chan prank that the Chads and Stacys of the BBC and liberal media swallowed whole." Indeed.

Among the more glaringly obvious indicators that the petition was a prank? The IP addresses for so-called signatories came from all over the globe, including Ghana, Vietnam, Uganda and Turkmenistan. In addition, between 40,000 to 50,000 "signatories" came from Vatican City, which has a population of about 800 and another roughly 30,000 signatories came from -- wait for it -- North Korea.

HeatStreet also scoured online hacker forums and found what some on the web are saying about the hoax:

They’ll look at the IPs and wonder how the fuck people from north Korea and the Vatican are voting

Most online petitions are fraudulent as fuck anyway due to the lack of any verification needed and the fact that you can make a petition over anything.

Anyone remember the petition by /jp/ to ban normalf*gs and janitors? Something to that effect anyway.


How long until they blame Putin’s hackers for it?

Hackers were boasting on social media about their hilarious prank from the get-go, yet the MSM and leftwing globalists just couldn't accept it: 

Ironically, only RussiaToday, The Telegraph and the Mirror UK thus far have reported that a "fraud probe" is underway after finding that at least "77,000" signatures proved fake.

The HeatStreet site provides additional proof, however, that the hoax goes deeper than a mere 77,000 signatures. The site shares screenshots of hackers boasting about the prank as well as additional code hackers have used both past and present to crash Parliament's websites and petitions. 

Obvious questions that should have been ever-present in any journalist's mind are: how could a petition garner that many signatures in such short order, and, where do these signatories come from? Prompting said journalist to think: surely, there must be something awry with that poll, I best look into the origins of these so-called "signatures" before reporting them to the world as factual. 

That would, however, mean doing one's job and presenting facts rather than revisionism. 

There are no depths too low for the mainstream media, which time and again expose themselves as the shameless cretins that they are.

How Vulnerable is the Shaky

How Vulnerable is the Shaky US Economy to Brexit Fallout and European Bank Meltdown?

European Banks Crushed, Worst 2-Day Plunge Ever, Italian Banks to Get Taxpayer Bailout, Contagion Hits US Banks


Contagion is infecting US banking stocks. As I’m writing this, Goldman Sachs is down -1.2%, Wells Fargo -1.3%, JPMorgan -3.1%, Morgan Stanley -3.3%, Citibank -4.1%, and Bank of American -6.1%.

These wounds among US banks are just cosmetic compared to the bank massacre happening in Europe, where the ECB is now fully engaged in trying to deal with a Financial Crisis under the cover of Brexit Chaos. Read… ECB Blows €400bn on “Brexit Black Friday” Bank Bailouts

The emerging consensus view is, as Pentagon analysts put it, “Brexit may lead to Frexit (French exit), the collapse of banks, populism, nationalism and anti-globalism.” This is also likely lead to an end to Khazarian mafia sponsored Mulsim immigration.

The situation in France has already become so chaotic that French police say they are becoming too exhausted to deal with the daily, violent demonstrations taking place throughout the country. French President Francois Hollande, who has only 11% public support, is trying to ban demonstrations but it is hard to see who will enforce his “ban.” In other words, France is headed for revolution.

“This is the worst period I recall, there is nothing like it,” is how former Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan described the general situation and the market chaos that followed the Brexit vote.

This may be the worst period Greenspan and his Rockefeller, Bush sponsors can recall but the Rothschilds are saying they made $2.5 trillion in one day on Friday by shorting all the stock markets and going long gold. This is their biggest bonanza since their insider trading on Waterloo. As the Rothschilds say, “the best time to make money is when blood is running on the streets.”

Indeed blood may well start running. Even top CIA experts are publicly saying a revolution is imminent in Europe and the United States.

However, if properly handled, this situation will be a good thing for the US,

National Cancer Institute Quietly Confirms Cannabis Can Cure Cancer

Their Report on Cannabis Antitumor Activity

Studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.

 A study in mice showed that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.

 A laboratory study of delta-9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed that it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in mouse models of liver cancer showed that it had antitumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.

But whether Trumpism captures

But whether Trumpism captures the White House or not, it is virtually certain that Brexit is a contagious political disease. In response to today's history-shaking event, determined campaigns for Frexit, Spexit, NExit, Grexit, Italxit, Hungexit and more centrifugal political emissions will next follow. - David Stockman

Gold is experiencing its best up day in the last seven years and the best up day when dominated in the British Pound in the last 42 years, up 15% overnight! - Nathan McDonald

I did the math if you are interested. The last COT report - the commercials were about 300,000 net short gold futures. Each contract is for 100 ounces. Gold went up about $60 in a matter of hours. This means they lost almost 2 billion dollars (1.8 billion to be more exact) in a matter of hours. - LeMetropole Café

"There really is nothing more that we can say here this morning in light of the massive push higher by gold in all currency terms. The monetary authorities shall have no choice but to be even more expansionary than they have been and gold shall continue to rise in Eur, Yen and dollar terms. Would, however, that we had owned gold in Sterling terms: what a trade that would have been!" - Dennis Gartman

"I can't think of a negative for gold," said. "The bulls are fully in control at this point." - Mr. Haberkorn

Perhaps most at stake for the elitists is the paper war on gold and silver that intensified when the metals threatened to go parabolic in 2011. But there is evidence that the paper-rigging scheme is failing. To the extent that a BREXIT event undermines the euro, one of the collateral consequences for the elitists is that it will hasten the conversion of fiat currencies into physical metal.

But there's a problem. The most glaring evidence of this problem is the catastrophic issuance of Comex paper silver claims on a shrinking pile of physical silver in Comex vaults. Since January 20th there's been a stunning decline in reported Comex silver inventory.

Currently, the amount of paper silver contracts issued on the Comex represents over one billion ounces of silver. This is more than seven times the total amount of physical silver reported to be sitting in Comex vaults.

It's 45 times more than the amount of "registered" (available to be delivered) silver on the Comex. It's 25% more than the annual global production of silver. - Dave Kranzler

it's obvious that JPMorgan et al are getting ever closer to being caught between a rock and a very hard place. They're not there yet Ted says, but the brick wall is staring them right in the face.

Something has to give - and it will - and soon. - Ed Steer

A New Balance Of Power In The Gold Market

Once this process gets going it will quickly clear out the inventories of the Western exchanges, leaving nothing for future arbitrageurs. The exchanges will then force those wanting delivery to accept cash instead, in effect defaulting on their promises. Then it's game over, with the big futures manipulators no longer a factor in pricing.

Furthermore, the script responsible is written in python, only nerds use python - i'd therefore bet my stack that this was indeed, a "hack" yes

Capital Flight Chaos - Safe Havens Are Tiny Markets

There's a preponderance of data that shows the world's major asset markets are dangerously overvalued. And when these asset bubbles start to burst, the 'save haven' markets that investment capital will try to flee to are ridiculously small. Investors who do not start moving their capital in advance of crisis will be forced to pay much higher prices for safety -- or may find they can't get into these haven assets at any price...

Greenspan Warns A Crisis Is Imminent, Urges A Return To The Gold Standard

"We're dealing now in very early days a crisis which has got a way to go. If we went back on the gold standard and we adhered to the actual structure of the gold standard as it exited prior to 1913, we'd be fine. Remember that the period 1870 to 1913 was one of the most aggressive periods economically that we've had in the United States, and that was a golden period of the gold standard."

Unresponsive script

I am totally inept when it comes to computers but I have been getting the unresponsive script messages also. On my computer I think they are coming from another site which I have open and I think it is Kitco. Anyway, when I close Kitco's site they seem to go away from any of the other sites where they have been showing up (like TFMR). Could it be that Kitco has been hacked in some manner? Does that make any sense at all?? This stuff is waaaay beyond my knowledge and understanding.

Do Over 'Petition'

When I heard about it - - after observing MSM 'reporting' for many years - - I just assumed they were lying . . . again. Viewing anything said by the MSM, politicians, or government bureaucrats as probably a lie - is a pretty good bet IMO. In the final years before the fall of the U.S.S.R., just about all the Russians I met there considered everything said by official sources to be a lie. Even many of the old folks who had fought The Great Patriotic War against the Nazis no longer believed the b.s.
