Livid that @KiwibankNZ - who I'm a foundation customer of - blocked my ATM card & all my online payments leaving myself & 2 children stranded in Russian winter/COVID crisis w/ no access to funds because I paid NZD$15.06 (USD$10) to a @DalaiLama-linked mindfulness & meditation org
They said they would unblock my card/account but then didn't and their international "services" helpdesk is not open again until Monday (and even then only for an 8 hour window), meaning we face two days unable to buy food or water or pay any of our bills.

NOT COOL, @KiwibankNZ
Very interesting: have Kiwibank added Buddhist meditation services to the list of people they are financially censoring?…

Would be strange considering the US House of Representatives just passed a resolution in support of Tibet:…

Very smart people told me: never write about what you are doing in the future, only the past or what is already completed.

I never listened to them

Being real is more important to me than being clever. I'm not reputation or results-driven. I'm love-driven

A personal thread:
Multiple ppl have been needling me to appear on video more

(Observant watchers will have noticed that I have barely made any public appearances this year)

I've turned down nearly all radio and video interview requests in 2020. I've deferred requests to other relevant ppl

The truth is, I've never liked being on video. I've never liked having my picture taken. I don't like fronting campaigns. I spent my life trying to avoid public speaking, or being on a stage.

I use the skills I have only when I feel compelled to do so. And only for 1 reason

Do you remember when Micah Lee and Cora Currier, while attempting to smear Julian, attacked WikiLeaks *SUPPORTERS* in a hit piece for The Intercept - targeting a housewife and a librarian?

I remember
The article ADMITTED to being based on "an assumption"

The Intercept editors let it pass

cc @ggreenwald
It was only through me intervening by having a public fit at the reporters, that the names of *A LIBRARIAN AND A HOUSEWIFE* were redacted by The Intercept

Really "fearless journalism" going after members of the public who support WikiLeaks

My meagre comments on Glenn leaving The Intercept (TI), are below:

1. Everyone who suggested @ggreenwald was in cahoots with Omidyar to found The Intercept to shut down Snowden reporting should be eating their hats today

2. When Glenn edited TI *every* article was scintillating
...I should say "co-edited" but ran out of room.

In 2014+, I would go straight to TI every morning & read every single article on the website. It was groundbreaking content. Now I can't even remember the last time I visited the site. It is by in large vacuous mainstream drivel..
...that is virtually indistinguishable from any of 1,000 other churn outlets.

By contrast, Glenn's personal reporting has remained as vital a shining light as ever.

3. While I understand why people are using Substack & its obvious benefits, I do not personally want him there

As promised, my most recent article has been updated with evidence that the cyberstalker who was targeting @_taylorhudak, @action_4assange & myself has now been caught targeting.......... himself.

I'll save you the reading time. Screenshots in the thread below this tweet.

Idiot sends idiotic messages to us. Idiot sends idiotic messages to himself. Idiot claims they're from someone else. Idiot gets busted because idiot is an idiot.

Idiot then cries "poor me" and makes up more idiotic stories because... idiot is an idiot.
Idiot claims my followers are threatening him. Insinuates I'm somehow responsible. Except I don't follow or communicate with the people he claims are doing it. And I'd already specifically stated that I didn't want any harm to come to him

Idiot circulates fiction about me

Dear People

On the below thread I want you to please tell me everything that upsets you about this user interface, application, the company that owns it & if someone else has already said it, in reply, like it.

Also feel welcome to suggest fixes to your gripes!

Complain away:
I'll start. It upsets me that timelines are no longer time-linear - I want my posts to appear in the order I post them and not with any regurgitated junk (or advertiser's junk) in between my posts
I hate all of this

I'm seldom shocked anymore by the depravity of those who smear me. But today I am.

Below Left: a tweet being circulated as "proof" I never said I was being targeted when I left NZ

Below-right: tweets from the same date, account, conversation.

But they've been edited out.
The audacity of their lies is incredible

The most basic fact check catches them out
Their big scam is predicated upon the idea that I never said I was being targeted when I was in NZ.

But I talked about it consistently.

Here is a 2014 video of me discussing the targeting, with one of the most famous NZ activists of all time:
