Visa and Mastercard blink, will now process Wikileaks donations.

  1. These 2 financials giants blinked (Wikileaks filed lawsuits in multiple jurisdictions for not processing Wikileaks donations).

    These 2 giants probably stopped payments, in the first place, to Wikileaks at the request of the US government!

    Powerful entities would rather knuckle-under to Wikileaks than fight a battle on the same side as the US gov't - which was previously top dog!

    This is a serious crack in the dike of "24-7" US gov't superiority.
  2. Interesting how there's no action on this thread! You'd think there's plenty of people who'd jump at a chance to attack to Odumbo administration!
  3. Suspicious.

    Mastercard and Visa both accepted payments to Wikileaks. Now both have, again, rejected payments to Wikileaks - on the same day. They act as one unit regarding Wikileaks.

    Both entities say there are no anti-trust concerns and no U.S. government pressure.

    I never found any of leaks shocking. I expected much more and was interested.

    Seriously. What happened to the supposed Big US Bank leak that was coming? What a fizzle out that ended up being.

    Nothing shocking comes from Wikileaks.
