John McAfee offers cyber security services to Donald Trump in wake of massive incoming Anonymous attack

StaffRebel Columnist

John McAfee is running for president as a member of the Libertarian Party. He also just offered enormous support to Donald Trump.

In an article by McAfee for Business Insider, he writes “Anonymous on Wednesday announced all-out war against Trump, announcing for the first time, to my knowledge, the time and target of an attack in advance.”

He explains how the warning by Anonymous of an upcoming attack against Trump should not be taken lightly.

The threats come from a contributor to the Anonymous headquarters website named "Righteous”. The user is in charge of a group of hackers who attacked Turkey last year.

“As a longtime observer of Anonymous, I have never seen preparations to this extent for any prior hack in the group's history. Its level of assurance in the success of its attack, in spite of giving advanced notice, indicates that it wants the world to watch an event of serious proportions,” McAfee writes.

It is then that he announces he will offer his help to Donald Trump.

“It's too late in the game to design, implement, and install the systems necessary to ameliorate the coming attack. But I feel that whatever happens, Trump will emerge with a far deeper appreciation of what cyberattacks can do, and hopefully he will understand better the implications of a potential cyberwar. To this end I am offering, freely and without constraint, my services to his campaign in helping design a cybersecurity platform that will, in the event of his election, help protect America when the cyberwar that lurks on our horizon becomes a reality,” he says.

We will have to wait until the attack to see if McAfee is right and if his support will pay dividends.

Any person or group, who bends over backwards to stop the leading candidate in an election, is anti-democracy.
To add insult to injury, the cowards hide their faces. They have no morals or ethics or loyalty.
LETTHE PEOPLEDECIDE. Don’t interfere with the serious process of electing the future President.
As we all do, you get one vote per person. THAT’S IT!

Anonymous are dead-head losers, just like all those other groups who pretend to be something but are nothing. Get that, Anonymous? You are nothing. Have you noticed how all the misfits of the planet hide behind masks of some kind? ISIS, Al Qaida, robbers and thieves, Anonymous etc? Even most of our neighborhood terrorists. Most Muslim men wear beards – a partial disguise. And then there are the fake names. Anyone who hides behind anything are cowards. Darkness hides sin and light exposes righteousness. Anonymous and loser cowards. Guy Fawkes was a coward with murder in his heart – and he’s their hero? Really?

I notice that the front-runner for the US presidency has a recognizable name (Donald J. Trump) and no apologies for his truthful stand. Truth is never disguised.

How disappointing. Had high hopes these guys were going to do something useful like go after imams and pedoes and such. No doubt bought and paid for. Guess we need a group of right wing hackers.

Follow the money! – anonymous is not doing this simply to dis Trump – there must be a more coveted value than that.

Gotta love it! When Trump first came on the scene, nobody really cared. Sure another Perot or Nader that would stir up shite but in the end amount to nothing. Fast forward; WTF! Turns out the majority of americans are not as PC as the MSM kept telling us. So, what is the left to do? No-brainer. Violence and now cyber attacks. Brave New World!

I didn’t realize anonymous was so against the people! They are criminals.

An anonymous group of criminals!

Anonymous doesn’t believe in democracy.

I’ve said it before, anonymous if full of ship. Everyone was fawning over them when they said they were going after ISIS, but … then did nothing, and I was lambasted for saying anonymous was just show boating.

Typical left wing politics. Can’t campaign on their ideas or accomplishments but they’ll commit violent acts at opposition rallies along with other illegal activities to suppress others from a differing opinion. Their behavior is not free speech. Long past time the law was applied to our left wing Liberal criminals. I’d say it’s time the right started being obstructionists at Liberal rallies and then again we’re not left wing liberal children are we.

Great business move! Find that bastard and kick him up for the rest of his useless life.

The leftist criminals are shitting their pants over President Trump. That must be a good thing.

NSA will track these Anonymous vermin. The CIA will shoot them dead.

The US, through ICANN, owns the internet.

Bunch of paid geeks that like the laws only after they are caught.

Good gawd, is Soros funding commie hackers now? Makes sense.
