John McAfee goes dark again following disappearance of body double

"Do not be concerned by my absence," he tells his Twitter followers

Cyber security pioneer and crypto advocate John McAfee will today go dark again, “for at least 48 hours”, he announced on Twitter.

This followed on from a series of tweets regarding one of his body doubles, who went missing en route to the Blockchain Cruise event, where he was due to give McAfee’s keynote speech. Yep, you couldn’t make this stuff up.

On the run

Last month, we reported McAfee’s belief that the US government would soon act in order to silence him. “I want you all to know that everything I have done, I have done for the cause of freedom. I want a world in which authorities discover crimes, not manufacture them. A free world,” he told his almost one million Twitter followers.

McAfee is on the run from US authorities who earlier this year indicted him, his wife and four members of his staff for tax fraud.

And during May a dramatic statement appeared on social media. “Developing events have made it necessary for John McAfee to go dark,” someone wrote on his Twitter account. “Please be advised that this account will be operated by staff until further notice.”

That was followed by a link to an interview with Newsweek, in which he said: “I’ve seen a lot of shit that people have not seen. I see a world in America that makes me want to cry”.

He added that “we are being lied to by the government from every single corner of the world. The CIA provides [info], which is deceptive, manipulative. The government provides information which is manipulative and deceptive. So if you ask me, for example, what my position is, on anything, how the f*** would I know? Because I don’t have any information that is real.”

Americans, he insisted, need to wake up and understand that they have a corrupt government, a system of slavery, in effect. “I mean we work for three to four to five months every year for the government for free, in terms of paying income taxes. Is that not slavery?”

McAfee has this week continued his campaign against the powers-that-be, tweeting out a link to an article entitled ‘Corruption’.
