As of 11:00 PM EST Friday December 3, the following Domains/IPs resolve to WikiLeaks. Your mileage may vary, try other URLs or IPs if the first doesn’t work.
WikiLeaks.org was rendered unusable this morning and the site’s alternative domain name, WikiLeaks.ch, was also downed in the afternoon (though later resolved), following a move by EveryDNS.net to remove the domains from its service.
The downings have made the site somewhat difficult to access during the day, but an updated list of known, working domain names and IP addresses will be kept at the top of this article to provide access to the site’s information as it faces a growing backlash. IP addresses do not rely on any third party domain name service and should be considered the most reliable, albeit less convenient ways to get to the site.
EveryDNS.net is a free DNS service provider based in New Hampshire, and insisted its decision to remove WikiLeaks’ domains was strictly due to their inability to safely handle the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against the site without risking all the other domains they manage. They insisted they don’t have any political problems with WikiLeaks.
This is in stark contrast to Amazon.com’s decision to remove the site’s content in the wake of a threat by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I – CT), as Amazon insisted that they were easily able to cope with the DDoS and simply decided that WikiLeaks puts people at risk.

This is it folks. This is the epochal battle of our times. The outcome will define freedom, such as it is, for decades to come.
"Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty. "

Yea I think you're right about that. This is huge.
I don't think that this is the Big One. But you can at least make a long list of smelly spineless obedient state-control molluscs that need to be nailed to crosses.
Except the internet doesn't work that way. That is why the internet is a threat to the Powers That Be. The information is out there. The website are still up and running. To get rid of the files the government would have to delete the files from every single computer that downloaded it.
does any one know if the is a lump file on torrents or something so people can all just start getting the whole thing at once?
Go to your favorite bittorrent search site — I like btjunkie.com — and search for wikileaks. Various bits and pieces are there already. You can help out by uploading whatever's not already there.
Viva la revolucion!

There is little use in internet clampdowns by our manipulators, which are like trying to hold water within a tightening fist. What powerbrokers await is a new terrorist attack in the USA to shock & awe us back into censoring our own (and our neighbors') thoughts and words in support of our all-protecting nanny-state.
Good point. The government is not going to allow these leaks to capture the media's attention that much longer. And since the information is trickling down little by little it could be in the public's consciousness for a while. Something has to happen. How can they get Americans focused on what they want Americans to think and worry about? Another false-flag operation carried out supposedly by Osama or maybe Iran. Some aircraft incident, so we really start loving the T&A and submit to even more outrageous abuses by that idiot Pistole?
Someone is doing something about the lies and deceptions conducted by governments.., its militarism regime and how this machinery kills and operates and is not NY Times or LA Times.., or Washington Post and or Dagens Nyheter in Sweden and other News agencies or news papers.., the overwhelming reception and peoples support shows that people are sick and tired of governments and their deceptions and lies and for that.., that someone needs to be applauded by all…
Why does the U.S. hate truth so much? It puts them in the same league as the Zionists and the Israelis. Then they are in the same league, aren't they!
The world seems to be collapsing. No Government can be believed. Most of them are run by Corporations or by fanatical religious groups or immensely wealthy oligarchs or MSM billionaires.
Wasn't democracy supposed to be about government by the people, for the people?
It's a myth!
It was a trial. Athens was the first. It lasted a hundred years..
Our balloon started deflating when Reagan came into office.and we may have a rough landing.
The feudal lords are back in power behind their walls of power, lies, deceit and silence.
Actually, it started with Lincoln. All downhill from there, and bipartisan to boot.
media whores, guns and money……….!!
Interesting times these…I wonder if this is the final test before they jump up and throw off their floor-length shiny robes and reveal the evil that is hidden underneath. The USG (and those other govs in the same vein) have been pushing the people for years. A little at first and then a little more and in the past couple of decades, bigger pushes in more rapid succession. Clinton and Bush 41 really started the big pushes. The Patriot Act, which hardly anyone really understood passed with flying colors. The people hardly flinched. The INVASIONs of Afghanistan and Iraq created little more than a flush on the cheeks of the people and the FMSM helped squelch any real uprising. The people rallied around the flag of nationalism giving the government the go ahead to continue repealing our Rights and Freedom. And the people cheered when "Change" came on the heels of the Idiot in Chief left office, secure in the thought that HE (and his enablers) would never be prosecuted for their transgressions. Only the "Change" that came wasn't what many had envisioned. The only "Change" was that where once HOPE existed, realization that things weren't what they were led to believe settled in.
Wikileaks has lifted the covers and those who are paying attention realize that in fact, the rabbit hole is very deep. As someone (RickR30) above stated "something has to happen." The USG knows it can't completely make Wiki go away, the stuff is still out there – just harder to get at – and they know the average Joe isn't going to go to the effort to find it.
But, the fact remains the USG has to be able to control the flow of information if they are to retain the power they've accumulated over the years. So, yes, something has to happen that will allow them to shut down the information flow. And they KNOW that when they pull the plug, the majority of the people are going to nod their heads and as one voice say, "yes, protect us!!"
And that will be the end of the American Experiment – and all our freedom and rights will be toast. What will remain will be the sheep they've been grooming for years. And those who object will be hunted down and re-educated.
Sorry for the massive missive – the collective stupidity of the American people just got my dander up.
But, that's just this old Curmudgeon's opinion.
Wikileaks announced it will post banking information.
This is probably what is making them frantic.
Anything – but not our money!
Bradley Manning is the new Nathan Hale, and Jullian Assange the new Thomas Paine! The revolution has begun!
(This isn't engraved in stone. Feel free to offer your own comparisons of these our long-awaited heroes of current-day with those from the pantheon of heroes past.)
Found this editorial http://blog.opendns.com/2010/12/03/the-dangers-of…
while searching for openDNS. It's interesting that they pulled this stunt right after the reichstag passed this act. I'm still checking out openDNS – I was using it, or something similar, for a while and dropped it because I didn't see that it was actually doing anything.
I would probably would be more concerned if I had a better idea of what the heck was going on. Looks like a game changer, though.
Oh, yeah; good-bye Paypal, it's been nice.
I believe that Wikileaks is finis. Dead. They killed it. The website no longer comes in anymore and eventually will be erased. Go look at all the main US news and aside from say, the Huffingtonpost, there isn't even news about how the government is suppressing Wikileaks!
The British paper, the Guardian, continues to do major stories from this data dump but the NYT has turned the story on its head, PRAISING the State Dept and Obama for nifty Zionist negotiations! So why is these guys so freaked out?
Oh! If you read the actual cables, the truth emerges and the NYT is bending backwards to turn this into a plus for Zionism rather than viewing it realistically. Yup, according to our own cables written by cadres of Zionists, all of the Muslim dictators are on Israel's side so this is a great thing, a wonderful thing for the NYT which wants Israel to rule the world!
But the Times is NOT covering the destruction of Wikileaks. No way. The WP is pretending there is no news at all on this topic. I feel like we are living in the Soviet Union. Yup. Isn't this fun?
Speaking of this, I traveled in Europe in 1968 while going to school there and I was told by the State Department, I could not bring home any literature from Eastern Europe or the SDS in Germany so…I did exactly that because I was really pissed off. All that stupid propaganda back then about how free we were and how we could read anything…except for a long list of stuff forbidden to us, naturally.
They don't want the banking information to get into circulation.
It might put ideas into the heads of the cattle.
These people have checkbooks in the place of hearts.
Totally agree with the article, but the comments…
What the crap.. I haven't been to this site in about six years. Back then it was sane and rational in the comments… now every other post is One World Government this and Israeli Zionist Conspiracy that…
Totally agree.. The level of discourse in the comments has declined drastically over the years.
Let them crash the site…… Let them arrest Assange….. It ALL will in the end make wiki stronger and more aggressive………with a wider following……due to the publicity and intrigue……….
