It’s time to grab the popcorn and pull up a comfy chair, folks.
Recently, CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski went on the hunt for damaging audio/video of Donald Trump’s appearances on the Howard Stern show. (Trump and Stern are friendly; Trump has appeared on the show numerous times and said some pretty disgusting things.) When the impish hacker community learned that Kaczynski was begging the internet for some easy material, the jokesters at /pol on 4Chan began inundating him with fake information. The thread (and the prank) were soon discovered by Kaczynski who complained about the activity… which only encouraged more trolling from 4Chan, including some hacks of Kaczynski’s email account. It was at this point that the liberal Hillary support group Correct the Record (CTR) got involved. CTR threatened to use an NSA style tool called FoxAcid to find and expose the leaders of Anonymous, 4Chan, Reddit, and other online groups.
The hacker world did not take the threat as it was intended because instead of cowing to Democrat pressure, the community exploded in anger and has now launched an all-out assault on the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Obama administration, and the crony media that is allowing their corruption to continue undeterred.

#Anonymous first pulled out emails from the WikiLeaks story that seemed to indicate that Justice Scalia’s death may not have been completely natural.

Didn’t think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard.
“Wet works” is a known code for assassination, in case you were wondering.
Then #Anonymous turned to the women accusing Donald Trump of sexual harassment and found some reason to be suspicious of her story.
#Anonymous saved their harshest criticism and most damning evidence of corruption for Hillary Clinton.
Folks, this is just the beginning. #Anonymous is promising that there is more to come as they excitedly await the next WikiLeaks document dump.
The 2016 campaign for the White House has already been among the most disturbing and convoluted trips the nation has ever been on, but the most interesting moments may yet be ahead of us. If #Anonymous and their friends at 4chan, Reddit, and elsewhere on the web can stay focused on the Clinton machine… it may mean the end of the Democrat Party as we know it. One thing is for sure, the relatively anonymous denizens of the Internet are not the people that Hillary Clinton should have been stirring up with just a month to go before the election, and Clinton is about to learn why.
