After talking about the family of left-wing billionaire George Soros, conservative podcaster Dan Bongino disclosed something “weird” that had happened to him earlier this week.
The former Fox News personality claimed that his website, BonginoReport.com, was subjected to what he called a coordinated cyberattack as he was discussing the family on his Monday program, which is broadcast on Rumble.
“We were under just relentless assault. I do not believe it was an accident. Weird, right?” he said.
While Bongino was talking about the recent transfer of authority from George Soros to his son Alexander within the Soros family, the cyberattack happened. The son is anticipated to support the left-leaning and cosmopolitan agenda of the Soros-funded Open Society Foundations.
In that conversation, Bongino claimed that his website was the victim of a “massive DDoS attack,” also known as a “deliberate denial of service” attack, which aims to overwhelm servers by flooding websites with bot traffic and block access by actual users.
Senior editor at Human Events Jack Posobiec revealed on Tim Pool’s podcast that a similar attack occurred on his website around the same time.
“We are currently under what I am told by my tech guys [is] a deliberate attempt to take down HumanEvents.com,” he said on the program Monday.
Posobiec clarified that the attack occurred immediately following the website’s publication of a story comprising 17 audio recordings that reportedly revealed instances in which President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, accepted bribes.
“We put out the article summarizing all that, [and] the whole site goes down,” Posobiec said.
On Saturday, a Daily Mail article that revealed the Soros family’s efforts to further undermine the American legal system and advance leftist ideals through American media was linked from Bongino’s website.
The source reported:
The Soros family also boasts significant influence over American media. An analysis from the Media Research Center found numerous media outlets employ journalists who also serve on boards of organizations that receive large amounts of funding from Soros.
Those companies include ABC, NPR, the New York Times, CNN, CBS, PBS, and countless smaller outlets, such as the Sacramento Bee, Seattle Times, LA Times and Baltimore Sun.
The media has long shielded George Soros from criticism, portraying it as conspiratorial. But as Silicon Valley entrepreneur David Sacks recently tweeted, Soros has been very clear in his intention to mold America in his vision by leveraging millions over the democratic process. And that is certainly worthy of scrutiny.
“Soros sought to have an outsized impact on public policy…” Sacks wrote. “In any other context, the influence of money in politics would be a legitimate topic of conversation. Indeed, it is highly appropriate in a democracy to recognize when a special interest has subverted the public interest.”
In order to explain his resignation from the network, Bongino appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show last month alongside another former Fox News host.
“I think a lot of people think this may be some kind of anti-Trump thing. I gotta say — that wasn’t my case,” Bongino said.
“I was not targeted. My show, they were dying to re-up — we negotiated for an entire year. So I can’t tell you like, ‘Oh, Fox got rid of me,’ because they didn’t. The liberal jerk wads are gonna go, ‘Oh Dan Bongino was fired.’ I just give them the middle fingers. It’s just stupid,” Bongino said.
“I negotiate my own deals. I don’t have an agent. I do my own business deals. I don’t need any, I do my own business. They wanted the show. I just had a different vision for my role at the network, and that’s okay. I’m not the Saturday guy, Megyn. I’m sorry, I can’t work six days a week,” he added.
“I’ve got young kids, and I’m not working six days a week. And even though we recorded the show on Friday, you know, the inside baseball of Fox, what happens when there’s breaking news? Which with Trump out there is all the time — you gotta be on,” Bongino concluded.
