    Donald Trump faces 'total war' from Anonymous cyberattacks on April Fools' Day … li=BBnbfcL
    Hackers affiliated with the Anonymous hacktivist collective have vowed to relaunch cyber-operations against US presidential candidate Donald Trump from 1 April. They threaten to 'dismantle his campaign' by taking his election websites offline in a large-scale and orchestrated distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.

    A video taped message:
    "Dear Donald Trump, we have been watching you for a long time and what we see is deeply disturbing. Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States of America [but] you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideas. You say what your audience wants to hear but in reality you don't stand for anything except for your personal greed and power."

      Having been given the head's up hopefully Trump's campaign will take successful steps to ensure the would be attackers are thwarted.  I don't like the guy, but he has every right to campaign free of such obstructive tactics.

        I don't care if he's a target for Anonymous cyber attacks. Not my problem.

          It actually is your problem. Maybe not now. But, if we all had that attitude if it happened to you we'd all simply say we don't care. It's not our problem. I'd be curious to know how you felt at that point.

            Isolated, maybe?

    Thanks for posting this Stacy.  I was viewing a video earlier from the Chicago rally of Trump's, and saw an Anonymous cyberhacker member there.  I was wondering what was up with that. We already know that they are far-left-radical my gut reaction wasn't full of peaches and cream.  They may be blowing smoke again.

    Anonymous says they have dirt on Ted Cruz and they don't like that he stole votes away from Dr. Carson. I don't like that either, and I have some dirt on Cruz too. … -ted-cruz/

    Hope they go after Hillary for the voter fraud and coin flips.  But...

    They think disrupting a popular political candidate's web presence for a few days will damage his campaign?  This must be organized by teenagers who don't know of life off-line.  The sound-bite hungry media give him more exposure than his own web activities.  Hackers would have to take down every news site to reach their goal.  Silly kids.

      Agreed - his campaign doesn't rely on his web presence except Twitter

    Mr. Trump's websites are exceptionally protected. Checked them out a week or so ago, and it took me a few minutes to pass the security checks and enter the main content.

    Why is it that any truly mature adult  knows that free speech is EVERYONES right .   The actual  wording never stated that  free speech was only for liberals !  How is it that the far left simply out shouts anyone who doesn't Nazi- up to their mindless  rhetoric ?     Micro-phone grabbers  are not nor never have been for free speech , but only parroting each others drivel .  I saw it in the sixties  and it's back today except today , its much less centered around right and wrong  and merely involves the entitlements and selfishness .

    Want to see a sickening agenda , look at the education of children in America ,    the base agenda of teaching  them is entirely liberal - socialist bull,    Its no wonder so many of our immature  young adults are clueless about our system , our governing process , our history and future !   A hour of elementary teaching observation  tells the story of the new America .
