YIPL / TAP Magazine Back Issues
    Steal These Files    


On May Day 1971, in Washington D.C. (or thereabouts - it makes a good legend), a flyer was distributed advertising a revolutionary newsletter named Youth International Party Line or "YIPL" for short.  This flyer was headed with a caption of "FUCK THE BELL SYSTEM."  The flyer told of a new "underground" newsletter that was anti-establishment and was to be published on a regular basis.  This was the beginning of the YIPL Newsletter, which later became known as TAP, and was founded by the late Abbie Hoffman and "Al Bell."

YIPL was aimed more towards ripping off the largest corporate giant at the time, none other than Ma Bell.  Of course, today we now know that the Bell System was probably one of the greatest technical entities to ever have existed.  Believe it or not, there was time when your telephone calls "just worked" and the audio quality was even pretty good!

See the Jew: Abbie Hoffman

Abbie Hoffman was your typical 1960s leftist and student "revolutionist" (a.k.a. pampered, whiny, rich kike).  Hoffman called for communal living, supported the drug culture, homosexuality & pedophilia, supported "divide-and-conquer" tactics against Whites, supported various pro-Zionist, Israel-first, Marxist ("progressive") causes over American causes, and attacked traditional/conservative (Gentile) ethics and morals.

He often called for the destruction of all Western governments, particularly the American nation itself.

"We shall not defeat Amerika by organizing a political party.  We shall do it by building a new nation - a nation as rugged as the marijuana leaf."

--- 1969 quote from Abbie Hoffman in the book Woodstock Nation: A Talk-Rock Album.

"From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing...

There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews.  It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others.  With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews.  Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders."

--- Quotes from Winston Churchill in his article Zionism vs. Bolshevism printed in the February 8, 1920 issue of the Illustrated Sunday Herald (page 5).

"We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever.  Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands.  We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which it is not in your nature to build."

--- Quote from You Gentiles, by Maurice Samuel.

"'The list of Jews who have been involved in leading revolutions [since the middle of the 19th century] is very long,' explains Prof. Moshe Zimmermann of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's history department.  'When a social group is not satisfied with its situation and feels it cannot change it - it will support a revolution.  The Jews were not satisfied because they did not have privileges granted to other sectors and therefore the idea of revolution - whether communist or liberal - was attractive to them.'"

--- Quote from Prof. Moshe Zuckermann, a historian at Tel Aviv University.  This is a great quote which goes a long way in describing the Jewish need to tear down Western Civilization.  They believe they are "God's Chosen" and cannot be free to do their own thing under Gentile rules of behavior.  Jews will continue to tear apart Western society until the bar is lowered to the level of a street gutter.  Then, and only then, will they be satisfied.

Abbie Hoffman idolized Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Mao Tse-Tung, etc.  He supported rioters, murderers, and your assorted "anti-American" types - all while living in the U.S. on the White man's tax dollars and under the White man's Constitution - of course.  Hoffman was basically a direct ideological descendant of the Jewish Bolshevik, and all-around tyrant, Emma Goldman (Red Emma).

Abbie Hoffman and his Semitic/Khazar criminal cohorts received massive financial support from Sol Yassenoff-types who amassed vast fortunes from shady real-estate dealings, stock market manipulation and speculation, currency manipulation, shady hedge funds, private central banking, or just general profiteering.

They also claimed to be "for the people," but in reality, they hobnobbed with some of the richest 1% and most influential people in the United States, including the Jewish editor of TIME magazine (who helped Hoffman beat a drug charge) and an Executive Vice President of AT&T - you know, the same company they claimed to "hate" so much...

Funny, you don't hear much about any of that...

"I hardly exaggerate.  Jewish life consists of two elements: Extracting money and protesting."

--- Quote from Nahum Goldmann, ex-President of the World Jewish Congress in his book The Jewish Paradox, 1978.

Hoffman went on to write the infamous book entitled Steal This Book and was one of the original "Chicago Seven" during the National Democratic Convention arrests in 1968.  These "tough" young Jews shouted 'No we won't go!' as the Gentiles around them were drafted to Vietnam...

Abbie Hoffman was also friends with a fellow anti-White, anti-Western, anti-American, filthy and fat little kike named Ira Einhorn.

Besides claiming to start Earth Day (or as educated people call it "Murder Your Girlfriend and Get Excused for it Because You're a Communist Jew Who Started a Phony Anti-Capitalist Movement Designed to Fool People into Believing You Care About the Earth in Order to Raise Money to Fund Other Rich Leftist/Totalitarians Who Want to Destroy Western Civilization" Day), Ira Einhorn is probably most famous for murdering his White girlfriend - the beautiful Helen "Holly" Maddux.

In September of 1977, Holly Maddux had her head bashed in and was left to die (and decompose) in a trunk in Ira Einhorn's Philadelphia apartment for 18 months - all while Ira still lived there!  With the help of now-Senator Arlen Specter (Jew), Einhorn was able to reduce his bail to only $4,000.  Normally, alleged murderers don't get bail...

Aided by the vast fortune and political power of Barbara Bronfman (Jew), the wife of Seagram Liquor heir Charles Bronfman, Einhorn was able to flee to Europe where he lived freely under the assumed name "Eugene Mallon."

After 22 years of living in Europe, Ira Einhorn was finally caught by the French police and extradited to the United States in July of 2001.

In December of 2002, Einhorn was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison for the first-degree murder of Holly Maddux.

Don't expect those faggots Cheshire Catalyst or Eric Corley to be covering that story at HOPE (or Wikipedia)!

"Counter-Culture" Con Men:  Ira Einhorn and Abbie Hoffman in 1969

Abbie Hoffman later gave up publishing YIPL and passed the torch onto others.  He became a fairly successful attorney and authored several other books, including Steal This Urine Test and Revolution for the Hell of It.

Abbie Hoffman finally did the world a favor when he commited suicide on April 12, 1989 by overdosing on phenobarbital.

The first 20 issues of the newsletter were simply called Youth International Party Line or "YIPL"  However, beginning with issue number 21, the name was changed to TAP, which stood for "Technological American Party."  This eventually led to them having trouble getting a bank account with the word "Party" in their title without being an actual bona fide political party.

Later, starting with issue number 59, TAP then stood for "Technological Assistance Program" with "Tom Edison" the new Editor-in-Chief.  Still later, TAP no longer stood for anything.  TAP - was simply "TAP."

The original TAP ceased publication with issue number 91 in 1984 with "Cheshire Catalyst" (Robert Osband) the last editor after Tom Edison's apartment was (intentionally?) firebombed and his computer equipment stolen in August of 1983.  TAP's subscriber base was said to have been around 4,000.

During its 13 year reign, TAP was often published sporadically.  Subscribers never really knew when they would get an issue.  Many subscribers complained about paying and then not receiving any issues.  Over the years, TAP published on many mediums.  TAP published articles on all kinds of unusual things, ideas, and tactics.  Most of them would be illegal if actually employed.  Phone phreaking was a major issue, plus there were articles on lockpicking, homemade highs and drugs, hacking, rip-offs, cons, scams, vending machine ripoffs, etc.  Most all of the subject matter was controversial and always "anti-establishment," and sometimes border-line anarchistic.  TAP was truly a legend as it united phone phreaks and other "techno-phreaks."

Actually, TAP was truly the first hacker newsletter, although the word "hacker" was virtually unknown at the time TAP began publishing.  It is amazing that TAP survived printing almost a hundred original issues.  Many E-zines and newsletters today never get past a few issues.

The "New" TAP

In March of 1989, the "new" TAP was born in Louisville, Kentucky.  A couple of hackers named Aristotle (Kevin Jones, Editor #92-#100), Predat0r (John Parrish, Editor #101-#107), and Olorin The White (Society for the Freedom of Information) began publishing their own version of TAP.  Their first issue was #92 - taking up the reins right where the original TAP left off.  The "new" TAP just never was the same as the "old" TAP.  The new TAP started off being "free" for a stamp.  Later, with around issue #101, a $10.00 subscription fee was incurred.  Many people had lost money on the "old" TAP, thus most subscribers were leery of sending in $10 to the "new" TAP.

Not surprisingly, the same problems existed with the new TAP as the old one - subscription problems and publishing deadlines.  Subscribers once again never knew when an issue would arrive.  Keep in mind that TAP was not a high class operation - it was usually printed on borrowed copy machines, donated paper, etc.  TAP was not a "Madison Ave" publication nor was it meant to be.

After publishing issue #107, TAP never printed another issue.  TAP is dead, and should remain dead.

TAP is Back!

"Well TAP isn't that easy to kill!  I'm sure it will re-surface in one form or another sometime in the next decade."

--- Quote from Cheshire Catalyst in a 1985 interview with "The Infiltrator" while at a TAP meeting in New York City.

Thanks to the voters in the United States being total idiots, TAP will be making an official comeback!

Put out by TA Publications and NESOG, the newest incarnation of TAP will have a more small-government, survialist, true-conservative, "Ayn Rand-esque" feel.  This follows the "get the hell out of my way" spirit which should drive any true hacker.  If you have ever voted for Hillary Clinton, then complained on your little "hacker" radio show that nothing in NYC works, this won't be for you...

The newest issue will start with #108 and will be released in January 2009.

    That's why my KGB instructors specifically stated, never bother with Leftists.  Leftists only serve a purpose during the destabilisation phase, after that they will be very unhappy people.  The system simply has no use for these idealistic people who will be squashed like bugs.  They are instrumental in the subversion process, only to destabilise the nation."

Letter-to-Editor: TAP, Issue #48

One of the major reasons I am displeased with what TAP
has become is that you have spent nearly 50% of the damn
space bitching and venting your spleen and other organs
about what you don't like about us, the readers.  We
subscribed because the original version contained inter-
esting and useful information, not the ravings of an
ego-maniac who is pissed at himself because he can't
handle the job, and wants somebody else to do it for him.
Knock off the crap, and get back to business, or I shall
cancel also.
