After 9 gigabytes of Macron-linked documents and emails were released on an anonymous pastebin website on Friday afternoon in what Macron’s campaign said was a “massive and coordinated” hacking attack, France – fearing a similar response to what happened with Hillary Clinton after 35,000 John Podesta emails were released one month before the US presidential election – cracked down on the distribution of the files, warning on Saturday it would be a “criminal offense” to republish the data, and warning the French media not to publishcontent from any of the hacked emails “to prevent the outcome of the vote being influenced.”
Quoted by Reuters, the French election commission said in a statement that “on the eve of the most important election for our institutions, the commission calls on everyone present on internet sites and social networks, primarily the media, but also all citizens, to show responsibility and not to pass on this content, so as not to distort the sincerity of the ballot.” Following a rushed meeting on Saturday morning, the commission which supervises the electoral process, said that the data been “fraudulently obtained and could be mixed with false information.” It is unclear, however, how it hopes to enforce any punitive claims, especially when much of the initial document distribution appears to have taken place offshore.
Domestically, in a similar reaction to the US media’s response to the Podesta emails, French TV news channels chose not to mention the hack, although the left-leading Liberation prominently featured the news on its website. Liberation author Cedric Mathiot wrote that the leak, and its timing, “wants to create chaos” adding that the information was distributed in an “unethical method.”
On Friday night, as news of what has been hashtagged as @MacronLeaks on twitter spread, Florian Philippot, deputy leader of the National Front, tweeted “Will Macronleaks teach us something that investigative journalism has deliberately kept silent?” In a tweeted response, Macron spokesman Sylvain Fort called Philippot’s tweet “vile”.
In another parallel to the Clinton leaks, Macron’s En Marche! party said the leaked documents dealt with “the normal operations of a campaign and included some information on campaign accounts.” It said the hackers had mixed false documents with authentic ones to “sow doubt and disinformation.”
But in the biggest parallel to the Clinton hacking, few have touched upon the actual contents of the documents, which some say confirm prior allegations of illicit financial dealings and offshore accounts, and instead merely sought to attack the messenger. Indeed, as journalist Kim Zetter noted overnight, “Telling journos to not report on hacked emails misses point that nearly all important leaks occur because someone broke law or a contract” and then followed up with the following rhetorical question, flipping the situation by 180 degrees: “If GRU, intending to assault dem., hacks Trump & publishes emails showing his direct connection to Russia, should journos report on those.“…
As reported on Friday evening, WikiLeaks tweeted that the leak contained “many tens of thousands” of emails, photos and attachments dated up to April 24, but it noted that it had come “too late” to affect the election results. In a follow up tweet, the controversial whistleblowing organization posted a tweet sharing the location of all #MacronLeaks archives which are “now available as uncensorable magnet links http://archive.is/aULcm” …

The UN’s system is indistinguishable from high-tech fascism with an environmental facade and a religious-like mind-control mechanism. The mid-level technocrats set the parameters on energy production and consumption subject to the parameters imposed on them by the invisible government, which essentially sets the equivalent of the laws of arithmetic and physics which are to be adopted as unquestioned doctrine. Everyone is to accept this doctrine as self-evident and tautologically obvious because no alternative model is to be conceptually accessible. Everything is to be brought under centralized control with the aim of maximizing the skim at the top while maintaining stability at the bottom. The latter requirement will necessitate preventing the formation of any kind of social or economic autonomy at any level including families. Everyone is to seek guidance from above in a religious-like structure with as little localized personal interaction as possible. People who can be trained to accept this system based on “science” and deduction will be recruited upwards. Those who can’t will be “islamified” and eventually eliminated.
This agenda will require a massive catastrophe to disrupt the social and economic structures and alternatives which are already in place and render the distributed memory of history embedded in the population irrelevant. In the long run, population control will be necessary to prevent localized social phase transitions (communities) which would disrupt the upward flow of production and the downward flow of control. Think of crystals precipitating from solution when the concentration exceeds (or the temperature drops below) a threshold. Population control is equivalent to keeping the concentration below that threshold, ongoing chaos and trauma is equivalent to keeping the temperature above. Continual war is a convenient tool to control both parameters while allowing for the destruction of “excess” production to keep the masses poor and controllable.
The gift of universal solar-powered distributed ongoing spontaneous creativity which is embedded in everything from mathematics to space-time to molecules to complexity itself is to be replaced by an 18th century steam-engine mechanical monstrosity, the kind of thinking that created environmental problems in the first place.
These people are autistic mono-minded megalomanics and they intend to make the entire population (or what remains of it) the same. Is the vaccine-autism connection a coincidence? Traumatized birth? Circumcision? These all act to inhibit individual interaction.
It’s tempting to speculate on the social structure at the top, where this confluence of power and autistic behavior originates and is perpetuated to this point in history. One obvious possibility is blackmail-bonding (i.e. the franklin scandal) whose philosophical overlay is luciferianism, http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/12/franklin-coverup-the-white-house-call-boy-ring/, a fitting “counter-creation” to universal life, love and empathy.
If so then no one is in control. The capstone of the pyramid is lucifer itself.
The issue which is often lost on those who promote unfettered capitalism as an ideology is that while grassroots capitalism is just mutually beneficial economic activity, larger scale capitalism inevitably gives rise to monopolies which in turn gives rise the very problem described in this article. This is the paradox which must be addressed if we are to survive in the long run.
