Update: Wikileaks has just confirmed that Ecuador has shut off Assange’s Internet access after he released Goldman Sachs speeches.
We can confirm Ecuador cut off Assange’s internet access Saturday, 5pm GMT, shortly after publication of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speechs.

Goldman Sachs is that powerful??? That’s scary. Goldman Sachs is the company that banned all their executives from supporting Trump with a new rule that only affects Trump.
Just as Assange was said to be about to leak information even more damaging against Hillary Clinton, and Internet link was cut by’ State’ actors, Wikileaks tweeted.
Did Ecuador just get threatened in some way? Julian Assange has received sanctuary in the Ecuadoran embassy in London and John Kerry is in London now.
Wikileaks tweeted out that “Julian Assange’s internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans.”
Maybe that’s the cyberattack Barack Obama was threatening Russia with (irony here).
Wikileaks also released three seemingly cryptic messages followed by what looks like a key but isn’t. Actually they are hash values.
The UK FCO is the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
The numbers and letters follow what might be an upcoming topic. They are fingerprints or hash values for files likely to be released on those three topics. It can be used to verify it’s the correct file or it could be used as proof of some statement for which evidence is later provided.
The SHA value is used to verify.
The SHA (Secure Hash Algorithm) is one of a number of cryptographic hash functions. A cryptographic hash is like a signature for a text or a data file. SHA-256 algorithm generates an almost-unique, fixed size 256-bit (32-byte) hash. Hash is a one way function – it cannot be decrypted back.
When the files are posted for download, you can run a check against it and that hash value will appear.
A reddit user posted this:
A dump file is likely on it’s way, and this is for people who download it to run a 256shasum against it to confirm it is authentic.
If you are on Linux, shasum shortcuts already work in terminals (I think)..if you are on Windows, you can use this: http://www.labtestproject.com/files/win/sha256sum/sha256sum.exe and basically, as long as that exe is in the same directory of the file you want to generate a sha256sum for, you can open CMD in Windows, and say sha256sum.exe filename.zip and it will spit out the 256sum. If..you happen to download whatever archive is on it’s way, you can do this, compare to the key WL posted..and you will know if its legit.
John Kerry is in London. Yesterday he met to discuss Yemen, Syria and had a working dinner with United Kingdom Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson (FCO), in London, U.K. Today’s schedule is to be determined. On the 15th, he met in Switzerland with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir and later with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, also in Switzerland. With Kerry in charge and the other buffoons who accompanied him like spokesperson John Kirby, it must have gone swimmingly.
Whether the files have something to do with these issues will soon be determined.
Whether he’s threatening the country of Ecuador remains to be seen. Would you doubt it?
Democrats have been claiming the leaked emails are fakes and some operatives have been releasing fraudulent Wikileaks emails. These hash values could guard against that.
In one odd note, Hillary supporter and sex queen Pamela Anderson, who is also a health food activist and animal lover, brought Julian Assange a vegan lunch yesterday to which he said she was “torturing” him bringing a vegan lunch. It is for publicity in all likelihood unless she’s a mole. The conspiracy theorists once claimed Marilyn Monroe was a Russian spy when she married leftist playwright Arthur Miller. People love those stories of dumb blonde posers.
For those who have been working underground for the last month, Assange – Wikileaks – has been posting very damaging material against Hillary Clinton and the Democrats with the promise of much more – every day until and after election day.
