De-Manufacturing Consent- “Hacking the System: Reality Wars & the Case of Jeremy Hammond”

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Vivien Lesnik Weisman

Guillermo is joined by journalist and documentary filmmaker, Vivien Lesnik Weisman. We discuss Vivien's upcoming film The Hacker Wars (previously titled The Reality Wars), including the individual cases of Andrew "Weev" Auernheimer, Barrett Brown, and the recently sentenced Jeremy Hammond.

We go into detail on the Hammond case and review Jeremy's path from Chicago-based activist to enemy of the state and political prisoner. We discuss the importance of Hammond's "epic hack," what the public learned as a result, and what made him such a threat to the establishment. We also discuss the government's infiltration of hacktivist groups, COINTELPRO, the "Anonymous as a PSYOPS" question, and much more.

Podcast Show #118- Sibel Edmonds & Peter B. Collins Unplugged- Big Time!

This week Boiling Frogs Show brings to you an unusual segment. Peter B. and I decided to have a show where we just talk-talking the talk. The day we recorded this show my mood was totally affected by Jeremy Hammond’s speech during his sentencing session. We talked about that. We also discussed my latest commentary on Activism Within the System and what it means, and from there we ventured into the major disinformation campaign brought to you by Democracy Now, the pseudo-alternative fronts, Peter B.’s coverage of the Roger Shuler case, and beyond. Just to let you know, this was a show where I didn’t have to bite my tongue 😉
