This is why no one should believe anything on Wikipedia until it has been confirmed by 2 or 3 PRIMARY sources and the background/context is fully known and understood. #Wikipedia #KentHovind #FreeKentHovind #FreeKent #MargaretCRodgers
I noticed Wikipedia discredit Anything that's not Main Stream NWO SPONSORED agenda
Hi Jonathan. Take a look at what I wrote on her Wiki page.
Yo Jonathan, I clicked on your link to check out the document so that I could paste it into the BIAS ARTICLE. The document was not there. Is there another link that you could post for us? I too believe that Wikipedia is GARBAGE and want to expose it for the Satanic Shill that it is. God bless you brother!

ROSA KOIRE ~ "Secrets Behind U.N. AGENDA 21 & Global Sustainability" [Age Of Truth TV] [HD]
Age Of Truth TV ROSA KOIRE:
The agenda 21 plans have been signed for 179 countries around the world with out the knowledge and agreement of the population on each country
Populations are being moved into these large major urban areas, which is the rise of the City State...
what is does ..... it destroys the national control ... then the City State becomes more powerful ... than the Nation...
this is the shift of power ... so you have for example in the USA ... we have representative government ... city, county, state...and federal...
we not for all of those of those levels... so if you are not part of that neighbourhood council, which is hand selected ...
to represent the point of view that is elected to support Agenda 21 ... if you are no part of that ... then you are an outsider... you are a decenter ….
and you are not listened to ... this is how this plan in run .... through so called concensus
But under Agenda 21 it is
You don't vote for any of those in any meaningful
way.. its not representative and the lowest level is neighbourhood,
and that represents the community ... that's you ...
What will happen to those people that they consider outsiders?
Answer by Rosa Koire:
Just right now ... I am not going to call myself a victim .. because I am certainly not a victim ...
but I have experienced what happened when someone comes out and tells the truth about this .
Have you had any trouble as a result of speaking about this?
I have yeh... I have ... my local newspaper .. I reported a corrupt politician who ended up losing his position..
and what a received as a result of that is having an article about me .... with my photograph saying that I was a shadowy person...
... that my group was shadowy ... that we were not to be trusted ... basically what they do is that they chill your civil rights if you speak out..
.. and this happen regularly .. I think that this Southern Poverty Law Centre has called up a hate group ... which is absolutely ridiculous …..
Please tell us what group that you belong to:
Ok ... Post Sustainability Institute
Interesting ... I would like to ask a question ... you said Democrats ... and you consider yourself to be a Democrat..
I do .. I would say that the Democratic Party have go off .... and are now progressives .... they are actually socialists ...
I am a Democrat . I am a Liberal ... I'm on the left..
What's politically today between the Democrats and the Republicans?
Answer: Not much ... no it's just window dressing..
Question: Does it matter to vote?
Answer: Well .. I think on a local level .. it definitely does ... because we need to run for office ourselves...
we need to work on taking back control .... to occupy our government ...
So you think there is a difference in agenda between of the Democrats and the Republicans?
No ... I didn't say that.. no in fact now ... I would say that is is just window dressing ...
are you supportive of abortion rights or not? .. and they just switch off every four years..or whatever..
you know .. maybe one side supports gun rights... and the other side doesn't ... right now or whatever..
um ... but I think that essentially they are all globalists ... and party issues are irrelevant
the political process is designed to keep people fighting each other ...
obviously people are not going to like it that I am saying that there is not a lot of difference ...
yeh ... they are all globalists ...
So you think that it changed for the better when Obama was elected the president of the USA?
Absolutely not... I am a registered Democrat ..,,, and I have been a registered democrat
since 1974 ... Nbut I did not vote for Obama at the time..
Did you vote for Hillary Clinton?
No I did not ... I voted for the Libertarian Candidate ... both times... I did not know who it was...
the thing is this red and blue ... sometimes when I go and speak out around the United States I wear purple...
A different mixture between the two?
Answer; Because this is a farce ... it is a manipulation of the population...
its a way to get people to sit and squabble about Gay Rights until their tearing each other's hair out..
instead of looking at the fact that we are being destroyed from within ...in our county...
regardless of ..
Question: This is a deliberate diversion..
The New World Order .. is something that the politicians ..
that all the politicians on both sides of the party lines have talked about for years...
also in Europe ... all over the world actually ….
please tell us ... What Is The New World Order?.. according
to you . and what is their goal?
What is the goal of the New World Order?
The New World Order is a total transformation ... and total transformation of anything requires the destruction ...
for example ... this glass was once sand ... the sand is gone .. this has been destroyed ...
and transformed into glass... in order to have real chance .. you have to destroy what is currently existing ...
The New World Order is a simply a transfer from the Old World... from the Old School ...
from the old way of doing things ... the old individual city and nation states ...
to a single totalitarian global control network .. and I think that it has been discussed for a long time...
and I think that with Technocracy where its at the point now ... this is the dream of the Nazis to have progressed to the point..
and to the Soviets ...
So its a Nazi Agenda...
I would say that any communism ... socialism ... Nazi .... China.... any political ideology ..
Yeh ... any ideology that is based on centralised control ...ah.. is a totalitarian state..
The difference here.. of what we are seeing here is that they are continuing with the illusion ...
They are hollowing it out from the inside ... so they will continue .. things will look somewhat the same..
is an incremental plan ...
So what's the difference between the New World Order Agenda... and the UN Agenda 21...?
It is the Agenda 21 .. this is it ... this is it..
But all the politicians have talked about that..?
Have talked about the New World Order?
They kind of dropped that in there.
They dropped it in?
They kind of dropped that in there .. yeh ..
Not everybody will notice it..
No everybody will remember that they said that ..?
Basically all of them basically said that...?
Even from the times of Hitler and up to Obama ..?
Bush .. Tony Blair ... and whoever..
Yeh... Hitler said it... yeh..
So its interesting that they actually said it publicly?
An there we have it again...
what's the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans?
Really .. when they both talk about ..implanting and planning and wanting to have the New World Order...
Yeh... there is no difference... this is what globalisation is..
Globalisation is the standardisation of all systems...you can't control systems that are not in alignment with one another..
you can't control them centrally .... so this is what Globalisation is all about ..
its about bringing all of the systems under on centralised stardardisation control... whether it is law enforcement ... or land use.. energy .. water...
educational systems .. telecommunications .. everything... into so called .. in law... into harmony .. they call it... harmonisation...
so that everything can be controlled centrally . and that is of course Globalisation ... and removing any impediment to that Globalisation process..
is how the New World Order is established...
So please tell us about what the United Nations actually stands for ... officially ..
or what you think it stands for and what their agenda is secretly .. so to speak?
Well .. of course the concept of the United Nations .. through the League of Nations .. and the idea that ...
well we are going to beat our swords into plough shares... and never made war again .....
ad you can not go to war unless everyone has voted that it is OK.... and we're going to .. you know..
Lots of war are going all over the place ..?
And supposedly no one is going ti have anymore power than anyone else
What the UN is .... is a perfect framework for the implementation of a One World Government ….
and many of the New World Order organisations are modeled on the United Nations .. on the general assembly and ...
what they are doing is that they are agreeing by consensus ... they're creating the framework so that rules, regulations, laws etc can not be broken …without complete response...
But these rules, regulations and laws can't be changed by people's consent?
Oh.. absolutely.. the people have no impact..
So voting doesn't matter?
Answer: Yes... voting in irrelevant..
That's why its so important to take this back on a local level … because has gone on a really long time...its gotten out of control ..
and all we can do not is fight … and pull it back … this is the only choice we have … we can't … otherwise we've completely lost...
so the way to do that is locally … the framework for their One World Government is completely … is Governance … not Government ..
its governance.. through unelected boards and commissions … that are representative... and they make some decisions somewhere ..
and these decisions are imposed on us.... so international trade agreements .. which the EU started with a trade agreement .. Coal and Gas Trade Agreement … all international trade agreements end up trumping international law... so right now the United State is making the Transpacific Partnership Agreement .. with around 12 Pacific Rim Nations …. and in December this year .. the Transatlantic Agreement Partnership with the EU … so this is how this happens .. through .. and obviously when you have a world run by mega corporations … you want to get rid of regulations or restrictions of movement of goods... and populations .. and also you want to a reduction of wages … and that's where moving people into dense city centres .. where they have limited land and limited choices … you can also lower their wages …
So the United Nations is not really what it seems?
Is that what you are saying .. that the official face of the United Nations..
the peace keeping..
Yeh .. all the countries working together … working for world peace..
The World Health organisation … what it is .. is a way to standardise the world .. to harmonise the world … and that is the plan..you know .. the plan itself is supposed to bring up the developing nations … through the IMF and World Bank … but of course the trade off is that you end up completely in debt .. their minerals are now available for exploitation .. so who's paying for it … those nations themselves … its not about the developed nations assisting the underdeveloped nations .. its about … the developed nations exploiting and controlling the undeveloped nations …
But most of the politicians from around the world who are part of the UN and go there … and are part of all that .. don't you think that they think it is a good thing... do you think they know about this ..
The supposedly this evil agenda you are talking about?
Answer: Oh yeh.. they all know .. yes they do ..
They all know … on every level..
No not on the local level
The people that get chosen to attend these meetings?
The people that get chosen to attend these meetings to represent .. you know .. often times local county people will go .. these are chosen by ICLEI the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives …...
these are people who are already in the game …
Answer Response: Yes they do ..
How do you know that they know?
Well I can take the example of my own particular research that I've done in my own local area … of California … where my county supervisor was on the national board of ICLEI the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives …… and she also went to Copenhagen... for the 2007 World Summit …. representing Cinema County …. area of Northern California … and she is a Globalist …. and this was the reason she went representing the area because of who and what she is … because of her position … you see this all across the United States …. this is not a thing that no one knows about and is not heard of .. it is just the people do not know about it …
But how many people are part of this Agenda..
Its huge …
An they know about it and don't talk about it..
Well … if you talk about sustainable development to the guy on the street …
he's going to think you are going to do recycling and creative water use .. such as turning the water off when your brushing your teeth … and that kind of thing … that's what sustainable development means to the average person … what sustainable development really is … The New World Order … and a full total transformation ..
You are in that field as well .., right …that is your background
My background .. I am retired
I was an expert witness in land use and land valuation .. for the California Department of Transportation ..
I was a commercial real estate appraiser … district branch chief … and expert in testifying in land values ...
and that's how I found out about this …
So that's how you got involved in this ...
yeh … because I saw that people were not able to use their land anymore …. that they have to go to a land planning department in a city to find out what I can value the property as … some piece of land or some large development … and there was no way to know … because people were not being allowed to use their property ..
So what inspired you to go out their publicly and talk about I and .. you know .. being really brave about it .. going out there and making people aware of this …
Well … that story is kinda woven in with my book .. which is called "Behind The Green Mast - UN
Agenda 21" … and that is in there because I though that it was important to show people how just and average person with a good intention … could help make people aware as to what was going on … I thought that I was going to alert my local government as to what was going on … I was going to help them see what was happening …. and how I was targeted and attacked and basically it is a very interesting story … so …. I thought in my career..
You wanted to do good..
I just follow the truth … that is what my expert says .. you don't testify in court on something that isn't true … unless you are a fool … so everything I do .. I fully research … and I researched this .. and I thought wow … this is a conspiracy … it ain't no theory … you know …
A lot of researches talk about population control … to depopulate the world … what are your thoughts on that?
Well I do know that China .. being one of the countries that agreed to and voted for Agenda 21 … one of the 179 nations that agree to and voted for Agenda 21 ....
China is also part of it .. along side America .. Europe and everything …
179 countries agreed to and voted for Agenda 21 … I think there is only 196 countries in the whole world … and I think by now all the countries in the world have all agreed to and voted for Agenda 21 ….
So there is no conflict between countries, nations and continents
No... not as far as that goes … everyone has a local agenda 21 plan … so in China … if you go on the UN website …. I think it might still be there .. if not .. I think you can find it on the WayBack Machine … China's local Agenda 21 says they're working on a sterilization vaccine … with the United States and India … and that was back in 1997 … so if you look at the global bio diversity guide book … which is 1140 pages long which is a sort of a compliment to Agenda 21 … you find in there that the world's carrying capacity simply isn't sufficient to manage the populations …
do you think that is true .
I think that is not true .. I think that what is happening in the world .. is that the population is actually decreasing … that in many countries I think that … I just travelled through Europe .. and I can't remember any country where they were replacing their population ..where every couple was having two children ...but
many countries are way below that … the Unites States were below that … I think it was 1.35 or something like that...
So we do actually have the resources to feed everybody on this planet .. its a lie about depopulation .. the whole thing... wanting to depopulate the world …
Yeh … well .. I am not an expert in that myself … but I would say that … with the tremendous amount of information that is available … the world have greatly advance the ability ( I am not talking about GMO) to maximise crops … to ….
Well …. Monsanto is part of Agenda 21...
Please talk about that briefly …. that is very interesting ..
Well there is some thing called The World Business Council for Sustainable Development
I do have on the Democratic's 1 Agenda website … and I am going to talk about why its called democrats.... its on Agenda 21 too... on that website I do have a lot of posts on the world business council for sustainable development … Monsanto is a member … there are many …. many large corporations that are members … for that .. so for them what sustainable development means is quite different for them … as against you guy on the street thinking about turning off the tap when he is brushing his teeth … so Monsanto is committed to domination of the world's food … just like WallMart is a partner in Agenda 21 … WallMart is the model for the future … one stop shopping … right … are you familiar with WallMart?
One stop shopping right …. if you want to take a look at the example for that … read … Looking Backward … I think it was written by Edward Belamy … in 1987 … something like that .. its a Utopian Novel .. you don't need to travel far from your home … you don't need to travel at all... because every few miles you have a store identical to the one near your home.. and a couple of miles away …. and … that's all there is .. and there are no other options … when you have something like that … you have a dominator .. the same a Monsanto … so basically you have no competition … this is what all the large corporations are looking for …. they want to destroy competition …
They basically decide what to put in the one stop shop ….
You have no choose … you go on there and there are five of whatever it is … and you get to pick one ….
Why would they genetically modify the food … the things we drink... the medicine we use … the vaccines people talk about ….
There are a not of theories about why …
my expertise is not why … I think anyone who wants to control a population … wants to make them passive .. wants to encourage people to do group thinking … to not ask questions .. to not decent … and to also reduce the population … maybe not make it as fertile .. because there is not need for a large population .. there used to be in the 1800's when you had a huge farm … you needed a lot of people to work the farm … you really don't need that many people anymore … with robotics and ..
that's all part of the depopulation …
That makes sense ..
I do not really go into that .. I only really talk about what I have absolute proof for … however, these thinks make sense and the fit with that model …
How about behaviour modification and mind control and MK Ultra Technics .. deemed to be somewhat linked … do you have any awareness of the facts about how mind control … have possibly of been used for … personally or globally ?
Yeh well … right now .. in the United States ..all over the United States … in every city in the US, there are city meetings …. and I am not talking about when you go to your local council and they are doing the business of the day … and citizens go and watch it and get up and speak for three minutes … these are were citizens are invited to give their opinion on this cool new plan … for the centre of the city to build high rise buildings in the centre of the city and have high transportation in the centre of the city .. these plans are all the same all over the United States and the rest of the world … so when you get people out of the rural areas who have to put them somewhere …. so these plans … the idea of Agenda 21 ..
if people only knew about it they might object to having a dictatorship imposed on them … so the plan is designed to have the illusion that it comes from the Grass Roots … that it is a consensus …
that everyone is in agreement .. that this is something that we all want … its a good positive thing … and what the governments are using .. first of all they are using consultants … they hire consultants .. the consultants are trained to manage groups to manage meetings .. and they use … a Rand Corporation Technique called the Delfy Technique … which is a mind control technique … this is being used in every city in the United States right now … and I'm not familiar whether its being used in Europe .. but I would bet that it is … and people are brought into these meetings and ..
Can you just tell us what the Delfy Technique is?
OK … great .. the Delfy Technique is what it is … it is a plan that is designed to give people the impression that they are having and impact on whatever decision making is happening … while they have been brought to a predetermined outcome … so its a way of neutralising opposition … creating artificial consensus … and then totally manipulating the population to ask for what they are being given … and giving them the illusion that they are being given something that they have created out of the grass roots themselves …
Like problem … reaction … solution
That's the Hegalian Dialectic
And that's the big view of how this all happens …
Its like for instance climate change …
Problem … well what is the solution .. Agenda 21
so you couldn't have ….
So climate change is also a hoax ...
Is also an implanted lie ..
Well .. what I say about climate change … I am not a scientist … I have read a lot of things …
I certainly have a lot of questions about climate change and I do not advocate that it is justifiable … but what I do say … regardless of whether its true or not .. it would have been invented .. because it was such a wonderful tool … to implement Agenda 21 world wide …
An that's not speculation?
No .. because … you have to have crises.... you have to have a crisis in order to propose a solution … and you can't have these localised crises anymore … like war .. because its too local … so they needed a global crisis … so short of creating some aliens coming down from somewhere … they needed to create a crisis … whether its being fully created …. it is being used to create and promote Agenda 21 … the first major crisis is of course Global Warming .. and Climate Change .. the second of course was 9/11 … the war on terror .. the war on terror is the second major crisis that is being used to implement Agenda 21 …
What are your thoughts on 9/11 - 2001?
Well I never believed the official story when I turned on the TV and watched the fist tower collapsing..
You never believed it..
No I never believed it …
Do you think that 9//11 was part of a mind control technique..
Well .. there's nothing better than terrorising a population … to get them to accept the Patriot Act … which was already written for implementation …. and the congress was vilified … what do mean you want to read that 1,000 pages … how dare you … its under attack … this is what was the outcome.. this is what people need to do .. you know you got to engage … what's the outcome of the these things … OK you can hear the story .. firstly I can not think of anything more ridiculous or stupid … 19 guys with box cutters .. who they had no idea who they were the day before … then the day after all their photos were in the New York Times … along with someone's passport that happened to fall out .. and miraculously survived … it was all completely unbelievable
may be they rolled down the windows...
Just the entire thing … I never believed it for a second … but here we are in 2013 …
Was it Osama Ben Ladin?
I don't know...
Was he a CIA operative … probably … but the ting is that they needed some even like that … in order to impose the restrictions that they did … you know .. if you fly anywhere you practically have to strip in order to get on a plane … Agenda 21 is a hard thing to implement … in the last third of it … the first part
Even at some airports you have to have your fingerprints taken …
No they don't .. but their set up now … this is the next step .,,, they are set up for full biometrics … if you're a frequent flyer and you want to cruise through and don't want to be harassed .. you can have your eyes photographed and your finger prints taken …. I always to the .. I won't to the hokie pokie for them … I make them pat me down … and I do get harassed … I give them … I don't give them a hard time … I say .
" Hey .. is this all you can think of doing for a living …. … you know is there anything that you won't do for them ..? " .. and ah.... that's not real popular with those people … but the thing is that …
That's not the only thing that changed since 9/11....?
everything changed … everything's changed … you know this is the justification for the National Defence Authorisation Act … you know we have American Citizens indentified as potential terrorists .. all of us are being treated as a criminal …
So there's no terrorist threat?
Well … whether they invent a terrorist threat .. whether they allow a terrorist threat to happen or they create terrorist cells themselves … I mean …. the point is to terrify the populous and also to justify the chilling of our civil rights … and taking our freedom ….and also to implement ..
To violate the constitution?
Well of course ... certainly .. the constitution in the United States is based on individual rights … life - liberty and pursuit of happiness … the government exists to protect those individual rights … that's the only reason the government is there …. but … this plan is dependant on communitarian rights .. that says that the rights of the individual have to be balanced with the rights of the community... and the community .. what is that ? …. there is no community .. there is no deliniated community … and there are no community rights written into Agenda 21 anywhere .. they can change at anytime … so if you are balancing the rights of an individual .. with the rights of the community .. well the rights of the community have a lot of weight .. the weight of the individual are like a feather …. the individual has no rights against the rights of the community …
So recently they wanted to change the gun laws in America … and actually did after the recent school shootings .. there's been a lot of those … and the Boston Bombings .. can you tell us a little about those terrifying episodes in American History …
Well the second amendment states that the individual has the right to bear arms.. and just like the rest of the constitution it is being chewed away at … and attacked..
So do you actually think its a good thing that people have arms at home?|
I think that the right to bear arms is important … do I think that having a cannon in my closet is going to stop some stealth fighter that's going to bomb my neighbourhood … No.... but on the other hand I do think that we have the right to hold and bear arms and learn how to defend ourselves as individuals .. and I think .. I have certain new answers on that .. but that's my position on the second amendment ..
Look at what happened at the school shootings?
Well … I mean I think that you do need to look at the school shootings … I'm not sure if you are talking about Columbine and children at Sandyhook …. what really did happen at Sandyhook? …. I don't think that's been …
What do you think happened at Sandyhook?
Well I don't know … I really don't know … I have a lot of questions about Sandyhook?
What do you question?
Well I question the validity of what happened there and how it was portrayed in the press... as I do with anything that I see in the press.... because the press is a propaganda organ … its designed to influence the public in a specific way ….
There's a lot of journalist from different newspaper and different publications … whatever … that are presenting all of this news as fact as it is the same story .. and they do not all speak together … they don't all work together …
Well … you get the news feed … you get the people who are put up there and doing those interviews .. well I think it would be quite interesting to do an investigation on Sandyhook and I would be very interested to see that .. I do not know if its been done … just knowing that crisis actors are used … that even that such a thing as crisis actors exists … that people who are actors..
Crisis actors …. ae actors that ..
People that couldn't get a role in Hollywood?
May be …. maybe ..?
There are many people acting .. maybe they get tired of waiting tables?
Why would anybody want to do that ?
For a huge salary .. or … what are we talking about …
There really is a profession of crisis actors..
what they do .. they go into … let's say a mall... and they work with the mall Owner and some of them take the roll of people that are just walking around in the mall and others would take the roll of police and others would take the roll of the shooter … and you bring in the local police force and you train them as crisis actors .. so they are paid and trained to act as if their in a crisis situation ..
Like the Boston Bombing as well?
Yeh …. like a situation like that … and maybe like that …
But do you think that this is either speculation that this could be true or could this be part of an MK Ultra technique … being departmentalisation of the brain through trauma .. what we have heard that is used for mind control techniques .. personally inflicted mind you …
You know that's not my personal area of expertise … I don't really know about that .. I have questions … just like many people …
You would think that that would get out … using crisis actors?
Well that's known thing … you can put that into your search engine and this is a profession … actors do
this … whether they are hired … I really do not know anything about it … I am just like any other person speculating and thinking about it … but I would say that anything that serves to exist to helping keep a population … frightened passive and unwilling to question would further the United Nations Agenda 21 ….
So what are your thoughts on the Edward Snowden - Bradley Manning-Wikileaks …massive NSA disclosure about massive surveylance all over the world … what are your thoughts on that?
So interesting … um …. I wrote an article about Snowden .. I called in Snowed In on July 4th, because it was the 4th of July … and thinking about freedom... and um … I think it is quite interesting that Edward Snowden has ended up in Russia … who is Edward Snowden really .. I don't know … I think it is very interesting.
Who do you think Edward Snowden is?
I don't know … I really don't know … I think its great ..
He worked for the NSA ..
He went public with this information that they were literally..
Well of course all nations surviel each other … allies spy on allies .. that's not new..
but what Edward Snowden said that they are spying on the regular average population .. nearly everybody ..
An that … I thought it was great to reviel that to the general population .. I called him a hero … I think its really essential that people understand that .. if I were to tell you that the government was going to force you to carry on you at all times … a global positioning system monitor .. and something where you will be telling the government regularly how you were feeling … where you were …who you were with and what you were doing … you would say that there was no way I am going to go along with that … and yet you probably have a smart phone?
Why would they want to do that?
Well … total information … this is you know .. the Nazi's could only dream about having a system like that … it was impossible at that time to listen to every single conversation on the phone … it was impossible to read every letter … it simply was not possible ….
it wouldn't be that interesting … most people's conversations are boring ..
Not if your looking for decent … you're looking for spies … your looking for resistance … of course that's what you are going to be doing … you're going to be opening and sensoring letters, your going to be listening on telephone conversations … you know in q room of five people … one of them will be a spy … look at the amount of energy that takes … the tremendous amount of personnel …
They have access to everybody if they want to?
Well they do want to .. now we know about the Utah Facility … in Utah … in the United States … a million and half square feet on Camp Williams Airforce Base …. well actually its a military intelligence .. part of it is underground … its a military base … you can't access it … they have just built a million and a half square feet … its enormous … for data collection …. and their collecting fully encrypted data … that is being transferred .. this is all transatlantic cable … all communications of any kind …. are being collected there..
Of everyone on the planet ..?
Yes …. now they say that it is anything that goes through the United States.... but it includes all transatlantic cable traffic …. so what … what … they are doing is collecting things that ..
Even the Internet
All Internet exchanges … bank records .. hotel records … money exchange .. health records ...any information .. Internet … telephone … everything .. and um … this is all being collected .. even your encrypted stuff … because they think at some point that they will be able to break that code. … so it can be held …. they have a tremendously huge facility …. they had to move out of Boltimore … they had a facility in Boltimore, Maryland … but it was drawing so much power … so much energy that they were browning out the city of Boltimore … causing the city to literally losing their power … so they had to move it to Utah on an Airforce Base …. anyway … what I am trying to say is that data collection is essential to the United Nations Agenda 21's sustainable development …. its right there in the document that data collection and information sharing is essential, because obviously …. you can't unify .. you can't centralise … you can't standardise all of the data ….
So this is exactly what George Orwell said in 1984 … his book … his famous book …
You know its funny because .. when ah … when Aldous Huxley … wrote Brave New World .. right … and so Aldous Huxley received George Orwell's book from him .. um … Huxley wrote his book first .. and then 1984 was published afterwards … and Orwell sent Huxley a copy … and Huxley said.... " man this is a great book … this is excellent … but I think that things are going to look a lot more like my vision of the future in Brave New World … because in my book everyone' on Soma … test tube babies .. everyone's happy … everyone's doing just what they want to do … it is easier to control a population that is willingly going along … and that's why the plan they have called Agenda 21 is so dangerous …. because is indoctrination … childhood indoctrination is fully a part of this plan, so that children are being indoctrinated into accepting to be working in cohorts with the government …. working with consensus …
Instead of wars?
Yeh .. because wars are messy and dirty … and too much of a hassle ..
People talk about the possibility of a Third World War emerging soon … that kind of contradicts that a little bit..
Well .. I would say … in the developed nations... now the developed nations .. their whole goal is to exploit the underdeveloped nations … you know fully..
Like Africa ,, India … and wherever …
Yeh … like the continent of Africa, which has tremendous mineral wealth ….
Could we feed Africa if we wanted to ..?
I don't see why not?
Just the idea that we keep people … but I am sure the goal would be to just clear everyone off of that continent … because there is tremendous mineral wealth there … and the just the access to that is so desireable … and the populations are unstable .. they are kept unstable …. through … look at what's going on right now in Seria …
I was going to ask you about that..... what's the story behind the whole Serian Crisis now?
It looks like what is happening is that slowly … country by country .. the're going from military dictatorships
to religious dictatorships … to the Moslem Brotherhood … Islam is perfectly designed to implement Agenda 21 … because Islam requires submission …
Would it be a religious war or a financial war ?
or power structure war or ?
I think what we are going to see .. rather that all that World Wat Three kinda thing … will be much more focused on using selective terrorism … to strategic terrorism … to manipulate and control populations and inserting controllable … well this was the old model … that's what Sadam Huisen was doing in there …. make your own dictator … insert the dictator that is going to work with you … that wat you can exploit whatever you need to and you only have to deal with one person .. its more efficient … its the ultimate efficiency … and this Agenda 21 Plan is nothing but efficiency …. and this is the plan .. the whole idea is that is you can create instability in a region … then obviously you can have transformation …. because in order to transform … you have to destroy …. so that's obviously what we are seeing there in Seria … is the destruction of a stable … if dangerous system …. what the end result is going to be … we ask ourselves what did we come out with … what is the end result in Egypt ? What are we seeing? What is the end result? It is the implementation of sharia law
That's religious as well?
Yeh but it is not really religion … what it really is .. it is about control …. its really about total standardisation of systems … and total control … this is why it will work seamlessly … and is seamlessly connected with the framework of Agenda 21 …
So religion is again just been used as some sort of diversion … ?
Its a tool
Its a tool ?
So what's you general take on religions in general …?
What did Karl Marx say …. " Religion is the opiate of the masses..."
I think that Gya is the official religion of Agenda 21 …
The earth is the creator … the Earth in God … and all of us serve that God …
um … I am not just talking about that … yes …. we love nature and want to be part of it...
that we know we are part of it … human beings are considered to be a blight on nature..
and under Agenda 21 … human being are to be managed and out into islands of human habitation...
and everything else around that is to be left .. supposedly prestine … but I am sure that beyond what you can see will be full exploitation … of whatever resources there are ….
So how much liberty does the individual taxpayer have today …. because there going to be very frightened and very scared to hear this kind of information that your giving them..
Yeh … good … I don't know what it takes to get people to be active … but I think I have seen a real response on the United States ….. I have been travelling for the last three years … lecturing about this .. people are recognising … everyone knows there is something wrong … the idea is that they are not quite clear as to what it is …. and all these things are fragmented and people will fight about park meters … not realising that this is all part of the standardisation of systems and control ….. or their educational system … people will go and fight about the educational system … not realising it is part of Agenda 21 … so I think what's happening for the individual … is that people are more and more recognising that there is no guy on a white horse that is going to run up and save you …. there's no hero in this fight and there's no Switzerland in this fight … there is no neutral place … people come up to be and say .." where's the safe place? … where can we go in the world? …" .. and like you stay right were you are and you fight it there … you go down to your local government council and let them know that you know what's going on … and you hold people to account..
People would be too frightened to do that ...right?
Well look … nobodies holding a gun to your head right now …. if your too afraid right now …
how's it going to be when their really closing in ?
We have a moment now when we are free …. yes its a hassle to travel ….but you can still do it … yes its a hassle to hold private property … but you still can .. now is the time when we need to speak out …. if your not brave now … you will never be brave …. this is our opportunity to be the resistance …. you know I like to say this .. there isn't anybody whose listening to this, or watching this … who wouldn't have got up in the morning and put on a Nazi Uniform …. everybody thinks that they would have been in the resistance .. this is out time … this is the resistance … and this is the opportunity and our time to take the resistance and be the resistance …. and not to think that we can just remain passive …. and expect that noting's going to happen and to think it's way out there … its somewhere else .. its right here no matter where you live …. its in your town …
So whats the most important advice that you can give to people in general ?
People listening to you right now?
Refuse to collaborate..
Refuse to cooperate..
while you still can …
You mean with government or the state or ..officials
Yes … all of the above...
per say ...
… I do not have a Facebook account
I do not carry a smart phone
I know that it probably impacts my ability to reach people …
and if its your chose to use these forms of media .. then get out and use it … its great that you do that if that is your choice...
things that you don't have to do but are volunteering to do … refuse to cooperate … refuse to comply … um … if your volunteering with groups that support the United Nations … and Agenda 21.. the Long Association
for instance has an advocacy wing for sustainable development …
… or you are shopping at Walmart .. remove yourself from that equation … refuse to collaborate …
refuse to donate and volunteer your time …. set back ….if your children are in school and being indoctrinated … take responsibility for teaching them what ….
It takes a lot of bravery to do this for the average person...right?
Who also has to deal with fear … the fear of every thing … the fear of bad circumstances for the family or for the children …
Mm … Mm .. I don't know if its bravery …. it really requires some energy and focus … and you really have to … its like some hard work …. but I was interviewed somewhere … someone was asking me …. I was talking about Nazi Germany … and the interviewer asked me …" Why didn't the Jews fight back?"
And I say you know .. they did … but the first guy that went "Hey this is wrong" ..got shot … and pretty soon if you do that enough times in front of enough people … people are like ..wow … I'm not going to step out … I'm just going to go along to get along …. nobody's shooting you now …. this is it …. if you want to participate in saving the world … if you want to save your individual rights ….. then this is the time to do it .. I have 20 pages in the back if my book … and a lot of information on my website on specific things that you can do … for instance … we have made up flyers …. which um …. "When was the last time you opened up you front door to pick up your morning lousy newspaper and found a flyer on your doorstep that said …
"Is everyone talking about you and Agenda 21 … ? and on the other side it says "What's wrong with sustainable development … when was the last time you saw anything like that … we've put out hundreds of thousands of those …. and they are available on our website … print them out …. take them to your printers …. and make a hundred copies and get out early in the morning and put them out on doorsteps …in the morning … don't try and hand it to people because they don't want to take it …. and say …"Oh don't give me anything" …. put it on their doorstep … what we need to do is educate … ourselves and each other … so that wee understand what we are doing … then we are in a position where we can discuss this intelligently and where we can actually fight back … people don't even know what's going on … and we going to win without a fight … are we going to lose without a fight … I don't think so ..
No Fear ?
No fear …
Ending by interviewer..
Its been very fascinating talking to you Rosa Koire …. thank you very very much for doing this interview Age of Truth TV …

Wikipedia exposed 2006 By Alek Boyd
To those who like me have been reporting the evolving crisis in Venezuela the newscame as no surprise: Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that anyone can edit, is, to put it mildly, utterly unreliable. It didn't surprise us because we bear witness of how Hugo Chavez's and Venezuela's pages have been edited almost beyond recognition. In fact apologists of Hugo Chavez have expressed their pride on their 'editing work' in Wikipedia. Logically the only natural conclusion one could reach in light of it is that no Wikipedia entry can be trusted.
The revelation of the true identity of Essjay -aka Ryan Jordan- reinforces apprehensions towards the online encyclopedia. A 24 year old managed to con not only the Wikipedian community but also Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia's founder. The fact that Wales went as far as establishing a working relationship with Jordan without even bothering to undertake the perfectly normal credential-checking processes to be expected between an employer and its employees speaks volumes about Wales duty of care towards his pet project.
Wikipedia does not check the credentials of its editors, that much is known. However knowledge about its editing processes and criteria remains scant. A request to remove links to my site -vcrisis.com- from all Chavez related pages was introduced by another anonymous Wikipedian. Flanker, as his online name goes, argued that vcrisis.com was not a reliable sources of information with regards to Venezuela. But who is this Flanker character and what reasons prompted him to make such request? What I know is that he is an avowed apologist of Hugo Chavez and frequents comments sections of sites publishing commentary on Venezuela in order to advance the premise that Chavez's Venezuela is the closest approximation to paradise on earth. I also suspect that he is not even Venezuelan, neither is Sandy, that other Wikipedian involved in the issue. So how come people characterized by their superficiality of knowledge and partisanship about our issues get to decide what constitutes reliable information sources? Furthermore how come they are allowed to rewrite history without providing credible evidence to substantiate their claims?
Recently another Wikipedian (Maracucho) created a page about me that draw the ire of Chavez's fans and so they started editing it. When I noticed it I tried to delete the whole thing, knowing full well the infantile approach that Wikipedians have for facts. I could not, but was advised to take the issue with the Wikipedia Information team [email@example.com] that granted my request to have my page deleted.
I guess the take away message is that orthodox encyclopedias, with responsible editing processes, will continue being the preferred choice of serious people.
Without going into details it is a fact that https://www.wikipedia.org completely removed an important Wikipedia page because there was pressure from powerful people and organisations in the city which the Wikipedia page wrote about .... which talked about a series of books that were purchased by the state government reference library ...... that exposed endemic corruption in the legal, police, court, public trustee, political, business, media, finance circles of the capital city of this particular state. This led to the reasonable belief that professional journalists are paid on a full time basis by people and organisations to write Wikipedia articles in the way powerful want such Wikipedia articles written ...... and to also monitor all Wikipedia articles that are written about the city and state they are asked to monitor ..... and if any such Wikipedia articles have not been written in the way these powerful people and organisations are happy with ... then to gather together a few senior Wikipedia editors that will agree to completely remove such non approved Wikipedia articles .... so that the history of the city and state is written about in the way these powerful people and organisations would like ....

Venezuela's Corruption at the OAS
Hugo Carvajal arrested in Madrid on drug trafficking charges
2019 By Alek Boyd
Former chavista intelligence chief Hugo Carvajal -travelling as Adolfo Jose Mourinho-
was arrested yesterday in Madrid. Spanish sources report Carvajal had arrived
in Spain (from the Dominican Republic) back in March. Sources familiar with Carvajal's
arrest report that while his identity was fake the Venezuelan passport used was legitimate.
Spain had been informed of an international arrest warrant (drug trafficking) pending on
Carvajal in September 2018. Carvajal is fighting DoJ extradition request on the
basis of "arraigo" (having roots) in Spain: his son lives in Madrid. Carvajal's extradition
might be used as leverage in negotiations between Spain and
the Trump administration regarding Repsol operations in
Venezuela (procurement of diluents to PDVSA, which have been sanctioned by Treasury).
PDVSA oil sales during Rafael Ramirez reign: $1.3 trillion USD
What's DoJ waiting to arrest Rafael Ramirez & his criminal network?
WSJ ignores Carreyrou, prints David Boies propaganda
Why hasn't DoJ arrested Rafael Ramirez? Exhibit Andorra
By Alek Boyd
It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Rafael Ramirez, former concurrent Energy Minister and CEO of Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), basically managed Venezuela's income between 2004-2014. While at the helm of PDVSA, over $1.2 trillion got past his hands. Ramirez is even on the record, admitting that he oversaw transfers between PDVSA and the Venezuelan State worth some $480 billion. These are mind blowing figures, specially so considering the size of Venezuela, its population, and current state. Ramirez presided over the world's largest corruption scheme. Criminal doesn't even begin to cover what Ramirez & co did. Upon Hugo Chavez's death, Ramirez's power started to wane, and he was elbowed first to a diplopost at the U.N., and then sacked altogether. His network of utterly corrupt collaborators got supplanted by another.
U.S. government warns Repsol about PDVSA
2019 By Alek Boyd
About a month ago, Reliance let it be known that it was to halt diluent exports to Venezuela... from its U.S. based subsidiaries. Before Reliance's announcement, sources had informed this site that Brian Ballard had been retained to lobby in Mukesh Ambani's favour with the Trump administration. Ambani seeks lifting of sanctions, so his business can keep booming at Venezuela's expense. A set of PDVSA shipping data obtained by this site shows that, between 24 Feb - 16 Mar, Reliance lifted 7,600,000 barrels of Venezuelan crude.
Swiss financial watchdog probing Julius Baer on Venezuela deals
2019 By Alek Boyd
Via Gotham City we learn of a probe that FINMA, the Swiss financial watchdog, is doing on Julius Baer, one of the boliburgeoisie favourite money laundering banks. It is refreshing news, when considering that a Julius Baer director sent a threat of legal action when we highlighted his connection to Matthias Krull, the cause of FINMA's probe. Gotham City links to a couple of articles on the topic: one at NZZ by Zoe Baches, and another at at Inside Paradeplatz by Lukas Hässig. In all, it is reported that 70 Venezuelan clients with 700 bank accounts linked to Matthias Krull were identified. Beatriz Sanchez gets a mention, and so does Angelo Mazzarella, proxy / banker of another set of thugs that had deals with Krull / Julius Baer in the past.
Death by Medicine a film by Gary Null
Death By Medicine takes a hard examination at the dominant medical paradigm contributing to America’s health crisis. Based on Gary Null’s ground breaking book on the hundreds of thousands of injuries and deaths caused by conventional medicine, the documentary looks at the medical industrial complex, the pharmaceutical industry’s usurpation of the nation’s medical schools, research, falsified drug clinical trials, peer reviewed scientific journals, and the complicity of federal health agencies to permit this to happen. The result is a medical system unfounded on sound science. Why is there a lack of oversight by government regulatory agencies and private interest lobbyists call the shots for national healthcare? From FDA and FBI raids on cherry and dairy farmers to the halls of Congress, we witness the hostile attack on the natural health industry. We witness what happens when a mercenary healthcare system and the failures of a just and fair healthcare policy leaves the US as the 37th healthcare system in the world. The result is the American medical system is broken and corrupted by money rather than scientific fact, and the answer is to create a new medical paradigm that addresses the health of people rather than raising of stock prices, careers and reputations.

11 October, 2018
Today, 11 October 2018, WikiLeaks publishes a "Highly Confidential" internal document from the cloud computing provider Amazon.
The document from late 2015 lists the addresses and some operational details of over one hundred data centers spread across fifteen
cities in nine countries. To accompany this document, WikiLeaks also created a map showing where Amazon’s data centers are located.
Amazon, which is the largest cloud provider, is notoriously secretive about the precise locations of its data centers.
While a few are publicly tied to Amazon, this is the exception rather than the norm. More often, Amazon operates out of data centers
owned by other companies with little indication that Amazon itself is based there too or runs its own data centers under less-identifiable
subsidiaries such as VaData, Inc. In some cases, Amazon uses pseudonyms to obscure its presence. For example, at its IAD77 data center,
the document states that “Amazon is known as ‘Vandalay Industries’ on badges and all correspondence with building manager”.
Amazon is the leading cloud provider for the United States intelligence community. In 2013, Amazon entered into a $600 million contract with
the CIA to build a cloud for use by intelligence agencies working with information classified as Top Secret. Then, in 2017, Amazon announced
the AWS Secret Region, which allows storage of data classified up to the Secret level by a broader range of agencies and companies.
Amazon also operates a special GovCloud region for US Government agencies hosting unclassified information.
Currently, Amazon is one of the leading contenders for an up to $10 billion contract to build a private cloud for the Department of Defense.
Amazon is one of the only companies with the certifications required to host classified data in the cloud.
The Defense Department is looking for a single provider and other companies, including Oracle and IBM, have complained that
the requirements unfairly favor Amazon. Bids on this contract are due tomorrow.
While one of the benefits of the cloud is the potential to increase reliability through geographic distribution of computing resources, cloud infrastructure
is remarkably centralised in terms of legal control. Just a few companies and their subsidiaries run the majority of cloud computing infrastructure around
the world. Of these, Amazon is the largest by far, with recent market researchshowing that Amazon accounts for 34% of the cloud infrastructure services market.
Until now, this cloud infrastructure controlled by Amazon was largely hidden, with only the general geographic regions of the data centers publicised.
While Amazon’s cloud is comprised of physical locations, indications of the existence of these places are primarily buried in government records or
made visible only when cloud infrastructure fails due to natural disasters or other problems in the physical world.
In the process of dispelling the mystery around the locations of Amazon’s data centers, WikiLeaks also turned this document into a puzzle game,
the Quest of Random Clues. The goal of this game was to encourage people to research these data centers in a fun and intriguing way,
while highlighting related issues such as contracts with the intelligence community, Amazon’s complex corporate structures,
and the physicality of the cloud.pe your paragraph here.

Assange: "The son of a bitch is me" - statement on the sentencing hearing of US journalist Barrett Brown
Wednesday December 17
17 December 2014
“How corrupt can we be? Let us take Barrett Brown campaigning against Fox’s calls to assassinate Julian Assange, and flip that to say he’s campaigning for the assassination of FBI agents and use that to put him away for a decade. And then, if he tries to talk about this abuse in order to re-establish the true context, we’ll gag him!”
Nothing so well describes the surreal universe that has enveloped the United States as yesterday’s sentencing hearing of Barrett Brown.
Barrett has been jailed without trial for over two years now. He faces eight and a half more years. His next sentencing hearing is due in January 2015. The situation also involves me personally and the work of WikiLeaks.
Barrett Brown's Hunter S Thompson style, his public lampooning of the US security state and his defence of WikiLeaks and Anonymous did not win him friends in the US administration and soon enough the FBI was looking for any excuse to take him down.
The case against Barrett Brown can be broken down into two parts. Two charges against him occur as a direct result of his journalistic work on our Stratfor materials (anonymizing his sources and discussing, with others, the material they provided to him). These charges are at odds with national and international protections for the press and freedom of expression. The third charge concerns his speech acts after the FBI threatened to charge his mother unless he handed over his source material. There are no other charges.
The FBI showed up at his mother’s home on March 6, 2012. His mother hid Barrett’s journalistic notebooks among her pots and pans; an action any son could be proud of. Barrett didn’t co-operate and so the FBI made good on its threat. His mother was charged, convicted and eventually placed on six months probation—for obstructing the course of justice.
“My better judgement was clouded by my maternal instinct” she wryly told the judge.
Barrett reacted to this injustice inflicted on his mother like any son would. He became ill-tempered. But, being an American from generation Y, his anger was expressed on social media.
Barrett, a journalist as well as a son, said he was going to “ruin” the FBI officer concerned by investigating his connections—including those of his adult children. Not a complete fool, he stated, in the same sentence, that this was not a threat of violence, but rather the equalisation of a double standard: doing what the Bank of America did against WikiLeaks when it asked US intelligence contractor Aaron Barr to map out WikiLeaks’ relationships, including, specifically, with the journalist Glenn Greenwald.
Barrett’s angry comments to his friends was at odds with the times. Twitter is a police interview that never ends. Facebook has all your friends wearing a wire. Youtube has you in the dock talking to the judge. Every social media user creates a vast library of statements that may be taken out of context by vengeful or ambitious officials. Users should be displayed their Miranda rights each time they log on.
The most serious claim against Barrett Brown is that six months after the March 6, 2012 FBI raid on his mother’s address he tweeted “illegally shoot the son of a bitch”. It sounds bad. It is a clear incitement to murder. The FBI claim that the “son of a bitch” Barrett was referring to was one of their agents. That is false. The “son of a bitch” is me—and the person who called for my assassination was not Barrett Brown.
Barrett’s full retweet was “dead men can’t leak stuff… illegally shoot the son of a bitch”. The quote is from Fox news host Bob Beckel, who called for my assassination—an injustice that Barrett was trying to draw attention to. Here is the video proof.
The FBI took no action against Bob Beckel or the numerous other senior figures calling for my assassination. A bill was put before Congress to declare WikiLeaks staff “enemy combatants” in order to make our assassination legal. It did not pass, but the FBI still refused to act.
Two days after Barrett retweeted the Bob Beckel statement, the FBI arrested not Bob Beckel, but Barrett Brown. He has been in jail ever since.
The Barrett Brown case is such an obvious injustice that a public campaign by his lawyers to place the Beckel statement back into its proper context would be an obvious step for his defence team.
Indeed, after being publicly monstered by the FBI’s decontextualisation effort, Barrett Brown and his lawyers fought to place the quote back into its proper context. As a result he and his legal team were gagged.
“Brown has shown his intent to continue to manipulate the public through press and social media comments,” the government claimed to the court on August 8, 2013. Public commentary “made by or condoned by the defense will ‘undermine a fair trial.’” As a result, the court ruled it was necessary“to restrain Counsel and Defendant from making prejudicial statements to the press and media.”
How fine, how noble, how egalitarian. Fair trial rights for the government as well as the defence! Neither the defence nor the government can state their case to the public while Barrett Brown rots in jail awaiting his sentence—except to repeat the formal charges made by the government. Neither the greatest King nor the most destitute beggar may sleep in a box on the street. Fair’s fair!

MI6 Are The Lords of the Global Drug Trade
By James Casbolt – Former MI6 Agent c. 2006
It may be a revelation to many people that the global drug trade is controlled and run by the intelligence agencies. In this global drug trade British intelligence reigns supreme.
As intelligence insiders know MI5 and MI6 control many of the other intelligence agencies in the world (CIA, MOSSAD etc) in a vast web of intrigue and corruption that has its global power base in the city of London, the square mile. My name is James Casbolt and I worked for MI6 in 'black ops' cocaine trafficking with the IRA and MOSSAD in London and Brighton between 1995 and 1999. My father Peter Casbolt was also MI6 and worked with the CIA and mafia in Rome, trafficking cocaine into Britain.
My experience was that the distinctions of all these groups became blurred until in the end we were all one international group working together for the same goals. We were puppets who had our strings pulled by global puppet masters based in the city of London.
Most levels of the intelligence agencies are not loyal to the people of the country they are based in and see themselves as 'super national'. It had been proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the CIA has been bringing in most of the drugs into America for the last fifty years (see ex LAPD officer Michael Rupert's 'From the wilderness' website for proof). The CIA operates under orders from British intelligence and was created by British intelligence in 1947. The CIA today is still loyal to the international bankers based in the city of London and the global elite aristocratic families like the Rothchilds and the Windsor's. Since it was first started, MI6 has always brought drugs into Britain. They do not bring 'some' of the drugs into Britain but I would estimate MI6 bring in around ninety percent of the drugs in.
They do this by pulling the strings of many organised crime and terrorist groups and these groups like the IRA are full of MI6 agents. MI6 bring in heroin from the middle east, cocaine from south America and cannabis from morocco as well as other places. British intelligence also designed and created the drug LSD in the 1950's through places like the Tavistock Institute in London. By the 1960's MI5, MI6 and the CIA were using LSD as a weapon against the angry protestors of the sixties and turned them into 'flower children' who were too tripped out to organise a revolution. Dr Timothy Leary the LSD guru of the sixties was a CIA puppet. Funds and drugs for Leary's research came from the CIA and Leary says that Cord Meyer, the CIA agent in charge of funding the sixties LSD counter culture has" helped me to understand my political cultural role more clearly".
In 1998, I was sent 3000 LSD doses on blotting paper by MI5 with pictures of the European union flag on them. The MI5 man who sent them told my father this was a government 'signature' and this LSD was called 'Europa'. This global drugs trade controlled by British intelligence is worth at least Â£500 billion a year. This is more than the global oil trade and the economy in Britain and America is totally dependent on this drug money. Mafia crime boss John Gotti exposed the situation when asked in court if he was involved in drug trafficking. He replied "No we can't compete with the government". I believe this was only a half truth because the mafia and the CIA are the same group at the upper levels. In Britain, the MI6 drug money is laundered through the Bank of England, Barclays Bank and other household name companies. The drug money is passed from account to account until its origins are lost in a huge web of transactions.
The drug money comes out 'cleaner' but not totally clean. Diamonds are then bought with this money from the corrupt diamond business families like the Oppenheimers. These diamonds are then sold and the drug money is clean. MI6 and the CIA are also responsible for the crack cocaine epidemic in Britain and America. In 1978, MI6 and the CIA were in south America researching the effects of the natives smoking 'basuco' cocaine paste.
This has the same effect as crack cocaine.
They saw that the strength and addiction potential was far greater than ordinary cocaine and created crack cocaine from the basuco formula. MI6 and the CIA then flooded Britain and America with crack.
Two years later, in 1980, Britain and America were starting to see the first signs of the crack cocaine epidemic on the streets. On august 23, 1987, in a rural community south of Little Rock in America, two teenage boys named Kevin Ives and Don Henry were murdered and dismembered after witnessing a CIA cocaine drop that was part of a CIA drug trafficking operation based at a small airport in Mena, Arkansas. Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas at the time. Bill Clinton was involved with the CIA at this time and $100 million worth of cocaine was coming through the Mena, Arkansas airport each month.
For proof see the books 'Compromise' and 'Dope Inc'. On my father's international MI6 drug runs, whatever fell off the back of the lorry so to speak he would keep and we would sell it in Britain. As long as my father was meeting the speedboats from Morocco in the Costa del Sol and then moving the lorry loads of cannabis through their MI6, IRA lorry business into Britain every month, British intelligence were happy. As long as my father was moving shipments of cocaine out of Rome every month, MI5 and MI6 were happy. If my father kept a bit to sell himself no one cared because there was enough drugs and money to go round in this Â£500 billion a year global drugs trade. The ones who were really paying were the people addicted.
Who were paying with suffering. But karma always catches up and both myself and my father became addicted to heroin in later years and my father died addicted, and poor in prison under very strange circumstances. Today, I am clean and drug-free and wish to help stop the untold suffering this global drugs trade causes.
The intelligence agencies have always used addictive drugs as a weapon against the masses to bring in their long term plan for a one world government, a one world police force designed to be NATO and a micro chipped population known as the New World Order.
As the population is in a drug or alcohol-induced trance watching 'Coronation Street', the new world order is being crept in behind them. To properly expose this global intelligence run drugs trade we need to expose the key players in this area:
1- Tibor Rosenbaum, a MOSSAD agent and head of the Geneva based Banque du Credit international.
This bank was the forerunner to the notorious Bank of Credit and Commerce international (BCCI) which is a major intelligence drug money laundering bank. 'Life' magazine exposed Rosenbaum's bank as a money launderer for the Meyer Lansky American organised crime family and Tibor Rosenbaum funded and supported 'Permindex' the MI6 assassination unit which was at the heart of the John F. Kennedy assassination.
2- Robert Vesco, sponsored by the Swiss branch of the Rothchilds and part of the American connection to the Medellin drug cartel in Columbia.
3- Sir Francis de Guingand, former head of British intelligence, now living in south Africa (and every head of MI5 and MI6 has been involved in the drug world before and after him).
4- Henry Keswick, chairman of Jardine Matheson which is one of the biggest drug trafficking operations in the world. His brother John Keswick is chairman of the bank of England.
5- Sir Martin Wakefield Jacomb, Bank of England director from 1987 to 1995, Barclays Bank Deputy Chairman in 1985, Telegraph newspapers director in 1986 ( This is the reason why this can of worms doesn't get out in the mainstream media.
The people who are perpetrating these crimes control most of the mainstream media.
In America former director of the CIA William Casey was, before his death in 1987, head of the council of the media network ABC. Many insiders refer to ABC as 'The CIA network.) 6- George Bush, Snr, former President and former head of the CIA and America's leading drug baron who has fronted more wars on drugs than any other president. Which in reality is just a method to eliminate competition. A whole book could be written on George Bush's involvement in the global drug trade but it is well-covered in the book 'Dark Alliance' by investigative journalist Gary Webb. Gary Webb was found dead with two gunshot wounds to the back of his head with a revolver. The case was declared a 'suicide'. You figure that out.
Gary Webb as well as myself and other investigators, found that much of this 'black ops' drug money is being used to fund projects classified above top secret.
These projects include the building and maintaining of deep level underground bases in Dulce in New Mexico, Pine gap in Australia, Snowy mountains in Australia, The Nyala range in Africa, west of Kindu in Africa, next to the Libyan border in Egypt, Mount Blanc in Switzerland, Narvik in Scandinavia, Gottland island in Sweden and many other places around the world (more about these underground bases in my next issue).
The information on this global drugs trade run by the intelligence agencies desperately needs to get out on a large scale. Any information, comments or feedback to help me with my work would be greatly welcomed.
Police arrest of Julian Assange was kidnap, former diplomat says Friday, April 26, 2019
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was “kidnapped” from the Ecuadorian embassy where he lived for almost seven years after being dragged out when his diplomatic asylum was removed, a former senior diplomat has said. Fidel Narvaez, who worked at the London embassy as a consul for most of the time Assange lived there, launched a scathing attack on the decision by Ecuador President Lenin Moreno to allow police to enter the building and make an arrest earlier this month.
“What the President has done is unforgivable – it has brought shame to my country,” he said in an interview with the Press Association.
"It was a smear campaign, a smokescreen to cover up the fact that Ecuador was handing over a political refugee to be persecuted”
“It was basically a kidnapping. Julian did not walk out of the embassy of his own accord – he was dragged out by force, which is outrageous.”
Mr Narvaez said that following Mr Moreno’s election last year, staff at the embassy changed, and Assange basically became “persecuted”, denied access to the internet or phones and only allowed to see his lawyers. “They tried to break him down, imposing unbearable conditions and isolating him for months. He was living under a hostile environment, denied visitors and constantly being accused of breaches of a new protocol. He wasn’t even allowed to have a radio.
“Surveillance cameras were installed, recording every meeting he had with his lawyers and doctors, which is a huge breach of his right to privacy, and violates the United Nations human rights charter.” Mr Narvaez strongly refuted claims by Mr Moreno that Assange was disrespectful to embassy staff, did not clean up after himself or take care of his pet cat. “It was a smear campaign, a smokescreen to cover up the fact that Ecuador was handing over a political refugee to be persecuted. That is a crime.”
Mr Narvaez said he believed the UK Government was never interested in resolving the impasse. Joe Cannataci, a UN Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy, had been due to meet the WikiLeaks founder inside the Ecuadorian embassy.
.Statement on Julian Assange's situation - 27 September 2018
Due to the extraordinary circumstances where Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been held incommunicado (except visits by his lawyers) for six months while arbitrarily detained in the Ecuadorian embassy, Mr Assange has appointed Kristinn Hrafnsson Editor in Chief of WikiLeaks. Mr Assange will continue to be the publisher of WikiLeaks. Mr Hrafnsson is an Icelandic investigative journalist selected in 2010 as Icelandic journalist of the year (his third award) for his role in the Collateral Murder publishing collaboration with WikiLeaks. That same year, he became spokersperson for the organization and kept that post until 2016. Since then he has overseen certain legal projects for WikiLeaks. Kristin Hrafnsson says: "I condemn the treatment of Julian Assange that leads to my new role, but I welcome the responsibility to secure the continuation of the important work based on WikiLeaks ideals..."

Two Clintons -41 years - $3 Billion
A Washington Post investigation reveals how Bill and Hillary Clinton have methodically cultivated donors over 40 years,
from Little Rock to Washington and then across the globe. Their fundraising methods have created a new blueprint
for politicians and their donors.
The Clintons have raised $3 billion in support of their political and philanthropic efforts over four decades. Nearly
all the funds went to support six federal campaigns and their family foundation.
By Matea Gold, Tom Hamburger and Anu Narayanswamy - Published on Nov. 19, 2015
LITTLE ROCK — Over four decades of public life, Bill and Hillary Clinton have built an unrivaled global network of
donors while pioneering fundraising techniques that have transformed modern politics and paved the way for them to
potentially become the first husband and wife to win the White House.
The grand total raised for all of their political campaigns and their family’s charitable foundation reaches at least
$3 billion, according to a Washington Post investigation.
Their fundraising haul, which began with $178,000 that Bill Clinton raised for his long-shot 1974 congressional bid,
is on track to expand substantially with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 White House run, which has already drawn
$110 million in support.
The Post identified donations from roughly 336,000 individuals, corporations, unions and foreign governments in support
of their political or philanthropic endeavors — a list that includes top patrons such as Steven Spielberg and George Soros,
as well as lesser-known backers who have given smaller amounts dozens of times. Not included in the count are an
untold number of small donors whose names are not identified in campaign finance reports but together have given
millions to the Clintons over the years.
The majority of the money — $2 billion — has gone to the Clinton Foundation, one of the world’s fastest-growing charities,
which supports health, education and economic development initiatives around the globe. A handful of elite givers have
contributed more than $25 million to the foundation, including Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra,who is among
the wealthy foreign donors who have given tens of millions.
Separately, donors have given $1 billion to support the Clintons’ political races and legal defense fund, making capped
contributions to their campaigns and writing six-figure checks to the Democratic National Committee and allied super PACs.
The Post investigation found that many top Clinton patrons supported them in multiple ways, helping finance their
political causes, their legal needs, their philanthropy and their personal bank accounts. In some cases, companies
connected to their donors hired the Clintons as paid speakers, helping them collect more than $150 million on the
lecture circuit in the past 15 years.
The couple’s biggest individual political benefactors are Univision chairman Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl, who have
made 39 contributions totaling $2.4 million to support the Clintons’ races since 1992. The Sabans have also donated at
least $10 million to the foundation.
The Clintons kept big contributors in their orbit for decades by methodically wooing competing interest groups —
toggling between their liberal base and powerful constituencies, according to donors, friends and aides who have
known the couple since their Arkansas days.
They made historic inroads on Wall Street, pulling in at least $69 million in political contributions from
the employees and PACs of banks, insurance companies, and securities and investment firms. Wealthy
hedge fund managers S. Donald Sussman and David E. Shaware among their top campaign supporters,
having given more than $1 million each.
The Clintons’ ties to the financial sector strained their bonds with the left, particularly organized labor.
But unions repeatedly shook off their disappointment, giving at least $21 million to support their races.
The public employees union AFSCME has been their top labor backer, giving nearly $1.7 million for their campaigns.
The Clintons’ fundraising operation — $3 billion amassed by one couple, working in tandem for more than four decades —
has no equal.
By comparison, three generations of the Bush family, America’s other contemporaneous political dynasty, have raised
about $2.4 billion for their state and federal campaigns and half a dozen charitable foundations, according to a
Post tally of their fundraising from 1988 through 2015 — even though the family has collectively held the presidency
longer than the Clintons.
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."..".. Wikipedia is meant to function with unpaid volunteers who can create and edit
Wikipedia web pages about different subjects and people ...over the years the editor user base built up to a peak of
around 100,000 volunteer unpaid editors in around 2007 and then gradually started to decline ... the volunteer
unpaid editors would then create a Wikipedia Web Page and all put their input into editing a Wikipedia Web Page
until there was a general consensus reality as to what the facts of the person or subject matter was on the
particular topic of the Wikipedia Web Page was ... then as these things start to calcify ... the hierarchy of Wikipedia
takes place and control ... so now Wikipedia is not completely egalitarian ... there are administrators ...a sort of
Wikipedia Supreme Court ... the Arbitration committee which obviously ends up with various factions vying for
power ...by 2007 Wikipedia become the Utopia of Rules ...to use a phrase..."..
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges..." ... Wikipedia say they have around 100,000 volunteer editors ..
.congressmen ... business people become extremely concerned about what is on their Wikipedia page…”
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges..." A report on Wikipedia stated stated that editors
found hundreds of what you call "Sock Puppets" linked to one company... Wiki PR which explained that it employed
not only of the garden variety by also professional administrative editors capable of deleting and freezing pages ..
Wiki PR claimed over 12,000 clients from household names Viocom to Priceline to minor firms .. whose pages
were repeatedly deleted for not meeting Wikipedia's notability standards ... "
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.... " Sock Puppets are basically fake accounts that are all run by one person
but pretend to be multiple people ... in Wikipedia if there is a disagreement you want to have other people to come
in and take your side ... because in that way there is some sort of democratic element to it... but the Wiki Pr Scandal
was because they were openly advertising there services on this website and finally it emerged that they were
advertising on their website but they were not advertising who they were on Wikipedia ...so ... the fact that they
had corralled admin people in Wikipedia to help them edit and delete websites ... the admin people in Wikipedia
are meant to be more trust worthy ... these business es are concerned because when you Google their business
name and their Wikipedia entry turns up and nobody wants to look bad.. "
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges..... "you were right about the USA Government interfered
in Wikipedia ... a tracing program called Wiki Scanner discovered that computers at CIA headquarters did edits to
entries on the US invasion of Iraq and the biographies on the former CIA Head William Colby and former
US Presidents Ronald Regan and Richard Nixon .. also an FBI computer was also used the edit the Wikipedia page
on Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility.... e-voting machine-vendor Diebold deleted 15 paragraphs from a
Wikipedia article on e-voting machine-vendor Diebold, excising an entire section critical of the company's machines....
while the Vatican and the British Labour Party were also prolific in editing Wikipedia pages ... since the intelligence
agencies have had to try and camouflage their edits or outsource their edits or outsource them to third parties"...
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.." it was pretty easy to do that ...just get some guy to front for them ...
they were being so obvious about it.. well as its anonymous ... anyone can do it... lets just edit from our work computer ....
that's like really bad upset …”
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges..... "... so you have a huge network of entities outside Wikipedia ...
constantly revising and editing Wikipedia and one of the things that you point out in your article is that often the
prime target of these edits are those critical of capitalism, imperialism, such as George Galloway ...and there have
been all sorts of fake entities as somebody presenting themselves as Philip Cross who made 14 edits to my own
Wikipedia page ... but goes after figures such as George Galloway and Jeremy Corbyn ... if it is a single person ...
ho knows... made hundreds of thousands of edits ... 130,000 edits to more than 30,000 pages and all of them ...
are about defaming critics ... "
George Galloway is a British politician, broadcaster and writer. Between 1987 and 2015, with a gap in 2010–12,
he represented four constituencies as a Member of Parliament, elected as a candidate for the Labour Party and later
the Respect Party.
Jeremy Bernard Corbyn is a British politician serving as Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition
since 2015. Corbyn was first elected Member of Parliament for Islington North in 1983. Ideologically, he identifies
himself as a democratic socialist.
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.." ... this is one of these obsessive types ... he will make a tiny little change and
if it is left alone he will edit it a little bit more ... this is obviously the sign on an extremely obsessive person ...
or a team that is working in concern ... I mean .... if you look at the amount of time editing .. it is the equivalent of
a full time job and then some ... so I find it difficult to believe it is a single person ... but there is definitely a
political double standard ..I mean people like Philip Cross are allowed to go after the left wing... the progressives ...
the anti capitalists ...anti imperialists ..."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. "... so as you point out while they are defaming those figures ...
there's very clear intent ... on he part of the managers of Wikipedia to prop up other figures such as Hillary Clinton ... "
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.." ... yes Hillary Clinton was the beneficiary of the most obvious
Wikipedia PR Campaign that was coming straight from the top .. they hired the Clinton Foundation's PR Firm ..
the Manasion Group ... yeh ... Wiki Media the non profit arm of the Wikipedia ... they made around $75 million
last year on revenue .. in the form of donations .. it used to be donations form users ,.. now its donations from
users and large corporations and governments ... like the government of Kasistan ... they'll take money form anybody ...
you pay the money and you get the right desired coverage ... its no surprise if you look at the list of companies
that have donated to Wikipedia ..they have pretty nice Wikipedia pages .. you are not going to find any Philip Cross

with the Donald Trump page..."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... well if you look at the Hillary Clinton Wikipedia Page compared to
the Donald Trump Wikipedia Page .. there will be all sorts of unsighted and unsourced allegations against
Donald Trump that he said something racist about this and that ... yo will see a whole page devoted to the
Russiangate Conspiracy .... whereas with Hillary Clinton... her Wikipedia Page is so sanitised ...
i think its much shorter ..."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. "... you as an outsider cannot make any changes..."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... yes it is protected ... there are varying levels it is protected .. ...
there would be users coming into regularly trying to set the record straight and edit the Hillary Clinton Wikipedia Page ...
there was definitely a user who regularly came in and changed any edits made on the Hillary Clinton Wikipedia Page ..
such as edits stating that the Clinton Foundation had taken off with a lot of money from Haiti ... non of these edits
were allowed to remain on Wikipedia during election season ... nothing negative such as the emails scandal
surrounding Hillary Clinton .... was allowed to remain during election season ... I don't know the full level of protection ....
there seems to be varying levels of protection .... there are protected pages and ever more highly protected pages .. t
here is no doubt that Hillary Clinton has definitely got Secret Service Protection of her Wikipedia Page ..."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... "..The New York Police Department white wash
dozens of Wikipedia entries in March 2015 when Wiki Scanner Technology linked hundreds of edits to computers

he's not notable ... it has to be noteable if is going to be in Wikipedia ...I think a guy leaving his bachelor party
riddled with 50 bullets if pretty notable .. but ... I don;t know ... I'm not the NYPD .... they modified the entry to
make it sound like a much more reasonable procedure than it really was ... the other ones are allowed to make
the changes until somebody catches them ... then there is a big scandal.."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges ... "... look at Jeremy Corbin...
describe Jeremy Corbin's and the Labour Party ..."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski..".. this is one of the insidious ones ... it is not like they are outright
lying about the guy ... but there is a question of the undue weight they give to different materials.....
part is about his political party and his political achievements ..ans then the bottom half is all the
allegations of his comments of anti-semitism and the labour party .. it just like making this guy out to be Adolf Hitler ....
you know ... you guys need to write about something else .... "
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " from you conclusion Wikipedia is pretty amicable
to these kinds of changes... "
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... oh yeh ... there is definitely a double standard ... as you said ...
they go after the anti capitalists ... the anti imperialist ones...

Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski..".. well Jimmy Wales got his start on the Internet running
a Porn Search Engine...Bomis or Bommis? .. I'm not sure how to pronounce it .. then there was this side project of an encyclopedia ..
but it was too expensive and took too long to create the information to put onto the website... as it was not making any money ..
then they came up with the idea of outsourcing the edits... but then he realised that he could not run adds on it and
thus did not want to work for him ...if he was going to put adds on there which was meant to be an depository of knowledge ...
he quickly turned Wikipedia into a non profit ... and since found a way to cash in that way ...."

which is one of the reasons why the two co-founders split ... Jimmy Wales tried to white wash the other
co-founder out of history ..this guy Larry Sanger who ... Wikipedia really was his pet project ...
who didn't like the whole anti-elitism of the thing ... he said the trolls came in and took over and this
is what the story of Wikipedia has been ever since ...the trolls came in and took over ... so its like ..."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges .... " .. you quote ... is it ..'Kings Indian'..the user name ...

There is no editor or copy editor, and no one takes responsibility for the final product?' .... "
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski..".. and that's what you've got with Wikipedia ...
it's treated with this sacred information source .. Google uses it as a fact check .. so does YouTube and ... FaceBook
was going to use it for a while and know their using snopes.com (The definitive Internet reference source for
urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation) ... which is just as bad ... yeh its the first thing you see
when you Google you're name ... if you're a notable person .. if you Google a company ... or you Google anything ...so ...
Wikipedia are the Sacred arbiter of knowledge ... its terrifying when you look at who's doing the editing ... "
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " you argue that those who have close personal
relationships with Jimmy Wales ... such as Tony Blair ... or one can assume Hillary Clinton ... from her Wikipedia Page ...
are edited in such a way to take out anything that is remotely negative against them .... talk about Tony Blair for instance ...
I didn't know this but Tony Blair's financial wealth is 37 homes, ten houses an 27 flats ... worth £27 million pound plus
millions of pounds distributed through a network ... I don't know this ... I suppose that is what you get for selling
out the Labour Party ... and shoving the Iraq War down our throat ... working as public relations on behalf of
dictators in Kuwait ... in Egypt and everywhere else ..."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski..".. yep .. and Jimmy Wales doesn't really want anybody to know about that ...
so Jimmy Wales will through temper tantrums if someone mentions that when the Kazakhstan Scandal broke that Wikipedia had ..."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... "... please explain as this is a kind of window of how it works... "
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... also Wiki Media ... the non profit arm of Wikipedia was funding someone
affiliated with the government of Kazakhstan to basically to basically beef up and expand the Kazakhstan
the Wikipedia page ... because they have Wikipedia for most of the world's languages at this point ..
and they tried to make out that this was an independent Wikipedia Organisation in Kazakhstan ...
when the guy used to work for the State TV Station ... the guy that runs Kazakhstan Wikipedia ... Wiki- Billiom ...
I believe its called ... and its funded by the Kazakhstan Sovereign Wealth Fund ... so this guy is so tied in with
the dictators of Kasistan ...its not even funny ... but Jimmy Wales goes ... 'no its independent ...
I have nothing to do with Kazakhstan ... this is an outrage ... and of course this was the same time that
Tony Blair was consulting .. made $13 million dollars consulting PR for Kazakhstan and so its very incestuous ...
and the fact that Jimmy Wales tries to pretend that this is not in any way objectionable morally is hard to swallow .."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " ... what do the pages look like? ..."
.. investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... its basically the official line of everything from the Government of Kazakhstan and they basically took entries from the Kazakhstan State Encyclopaedia and put them into Wikipedia ... well why would you want people to write their own? ....."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " in 2011 ... this was the year that Wikipedia's founder was named Wikipedian of the Year ... being the same year 14 police massacred 14 protesters during an Oil Field Strike that turned into a riot ... and the government declares a state of emergency and restricts access to journalists ...."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... yep... so the only information you are going to get out of Kazakhstan
is by reading the Wikipedia page on Kazakhstan ... something tells me that this massace wasn't going to be
on the Kazakhstan Wikipedia page ... "
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " ...what has this done to our system of information ...
I'm surprised as somebody who has watched ... i do not go onto my Wikipedia site too much ... but when I go on there ...
there are always trolls that have written in garbage ... often falsehoods ... or an you say ... it maybe nominally sourced falsehoods ..
.what is this doing to our system of information...?.."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski ..." well its just ...its the fact that people take this as value is really
degrading the meaning of the concept of truth ... for one thing ... because it has become this consensus thing ...
where anybody who has an axe to grind and get in there and ruin somebody's reputation .. and sometimes
you try to fix that lie they have told about you and it is impossible and you can't get your page taken down ...
they pride themselves in not taking people's pages down ... "
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " also it is about which publications they consider
credible and those which they don't...
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... that too ...."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " ... so Mother Jones of the Nation are not considered
credible sources ... basically any source outside of the mainstream ... "
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski..".. so any alternative media are not allowed ... so..."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " ... what about Fox News?.."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski..".. Fox News was only made 10 years ago which is primarily an advertising network...

RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... " ... how effective do you think its been in terms of
altering public perception .."
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski..".. I unfortunately think its been quite effective ... because if somebody isn't very
well versed in this topic ... like say progressive and leftist politics ... and they go to Google somebody's name ...or they
look them up on Wikipedia ... and that is what they will see .. and they don't really know ... because they are only interested
in these things on a surface level ... they don't know to question .. I mean .."
RT America’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Chris Hedges.. ... "... they also don't know the biases of the people editing
the Wikipededia Page .... because they are anonymous ... we don't know who they are .... "
Investigative journalist Helen Buyniski.."... you can see there is a page for edit history where you can at least see the
editor's username and you can at least see the editor/user's other edits are but ... most people do not have time or the
inclination to do that ... there are obviously some ideology motivated actors ... which only just work on a certain thing...
which is supposed to be against the rules ... but one again the rules only apply to some people ... "

PRISM has been largely forgotten in the wake of more recent NSA/CIA scandals, but at the time of its exposure,
Facebook and Google were in the process of creating secure portals to allow the NSA to more easily access their data,
and it’s absurd to think they halted that project because of a silly leak. The Snowden revelations managed to change
precisely nothing about how Americans interact with the security state, except to erode the expectation of privacy we
once had. A browser plugin, back doored to the NSA, tracking one’s un-American activities, is the setup for the worst
kind of Minority-Report-esque pre-crime detention. And thanks to the same National Defense Authorization Act that
allowed the Pentagon to turn its venerable propaganda apparatus on American citizens, the security state can detain us
indefinitely without a warrant should the mood strike - even mow us down like dogs in our homes if it doesn’t like our
NewsGuard itself is supposedly staffed by “real journalists” as opposed to the algorithm that protects us from
conspiracy theories on YouTube, and it has already been exposed as hopelessly corrupt. Those in the
mainstream media who’ve heard of NewsGuard were perplexed by its rating of Fox News as “trustworthy,”
believing a right-leaning network could not possibly rate the coveted green checkmark. All was made clear
when Fox broadcast a puff piece hailing NewsGuard as the “killer app” that would save journalism - a clip
NewsGuard immediately added to the list of "endorsements" on their website. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.
This corruption became even clearer when NewsGuard was persuaded to change its “untrustworthy” rating
of the Daily Mail, the British tabloid which was also the first mainstream news source to be declared untrustworthy
by just a handful of editors on Wikipedia. The Mail, for all its flaws - and there are many - has more traffic than
any other online news outlet (not counting aggregators like Drudge). When an anonymous Mail editor wrote a
polite point by point refutation and sent it to NewsGuard, their rating was changed to green, ensuring the Mail
would not publish a scathing attack on the noble censor - which could have smothered it in its cradle - while
also making the plugin look eminently reasonable (see, they do change their ratings if they’re wrong!).
Everybody wins! MintPress, of course, tried the same thing months ago, only to be ignored and vilified.
Breitbart, miffed after being slighted by the NewsGuard team despite their diligent cheerleading for every
neocon regime-change operation, compiled a telling list of proven hoaxes the extension has approved.
More than anything else, the list highlights the obvious perils of a blacklist - scare stories like the
Washington Post’s infamous “Russia hacked Vermont utilities” are never properly retracted because they’re
designed to percolate in the reader’s subconscious so the next time they read about Russian malfeasance
they’re more favorably inclined toward the idea. Facts are stupid things that merely get in the way of a good
narrative. In the same way, a story published on Breitbart or RT - even if it came from ur-Reliable Source
the Associated Press - gets the scarlet shield of shame through guilt by association. NewsGuard is laughably,
irredeemably flawed, and no intelligent person would ever download it.

The UK has passed a law giving up to 15 year jail sentence for viewing "terrorist" websites. Next they will declare Wikileaks a "terrorist" organization. Happy (belated) 70th Birthday to NATO! Now Go Home, You've Outlived Your Purpose
Helen of Destroy: Published on Apr 9, 2019
NATO was founded 70 years ago to "contain" communism as embodied in the Soviet Union. This means it has lived nearly 30 years past its expiration date. Without an enemy to keep it in check, NATO has metastasized in a way that would turn any cancerous tumor green with envy, growing with leaps and bounds even as its raison d'être faded into memory. It now contains more than twice as many countries as it did when formed, some of which abut Russia's borders, and seems to exist for the sole purpose of provoking Russia - and extorting tribute payments from its component countries, with a hint that something nasty could befall them should they fail to cough up 2% of GDP. Anyone who smirks at this suggestion need only research Operation Gladio - the real mission NATO covered for, which continues to this day. Any countries that got out of line - leaning a little too far to the left, say, or (in more recent years) calling out the war crimes of one particular non-NATO US ally - might suddenly find themselves victim of a terror attack (spoiler alert: there's no "might" here - it never fails).

Wikileaks Julian Assange accusers Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilen
are accused of being CIA Operatives

Swedish authorities issue an arrest warrant for the founder of whistleblowers' website
with no actual charges laid against Julian Assange
David Batty and agencies
guardian.co.uk, Saturday 21 August 2010 13.20 BST
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilen - Wikileaks Julian Assange accusers
Swedish authorities have issued an arrest warrant for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange without any charges being laid.
The warrant was issued late yesterday, said a spokeswoman at Sweden's prosecutors' office in Stockholm.
She said Assange should contact the Swedish police for questioning about the accusations of molestation and **** in two separate cases "so that he can be confronted with the suspicions".
Assange has denied the charges, which were first reported by the Swedish tabloid Expressen, on Wikileaks' Twitter account.
Julian Assange implied that they were linked to the release by the whistleblowers' website of a huge cache of US military records on the Afghan war, which were published in collaboration with the Guardian and two other newspapers.
Assange wrote: "The charges are without basis and their issue at this moment is deeply disturbing."
Earlier postings on the Twitter account implied the accusations were part of a dirty tricks campaign against the Wikileaks founder, who has been strongly criticised by the Pentagon.
"Expressen is a tabloid; No one here has been contacted by Swedish police. Needless to say, this will prove hugely distracting.
"We were warned to expect 'dirty tricks'. Now we have the first one."
Last month Wikileaks released around 77,000 secret US military documents on the war in Afghanistan.
US authorities criticised the leak, saying it could put the lives of Nato troops and Afghan informants at risk.
Julian Assange has said that Wikileaks intends to release a further 15,000 documents in the coming weeks - a pledge condemned by the Pentagon, which has demanded the deletion of the files from the website.
Julian Assange, an Australian citizen, was in Sweden last week to apply for a publishing certificate to make sure the website, which has servers in Sweden, can take full advantage of Swedish laws protecting whistleblowers.
He also gave a talk about his work and defended the decision by Wikileaks to publish the Afghan war logs.

Protesters against WikiLeaks banking blockade, the "PayPal 14", largely victorious
Saturday November 1,
01 November 2014
On 7 December 2010, the same day Julian Assange was remanded to prison without charge, an extra-legal banking blockade was erected against WikiLeaks – as a direct result of WikiLeaks' publications – by a number of US financial services giants including PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Bank of America and Western Union.
More than 1,000 people took part in a harmless online protest against the blockade, which attempted to flood the PayPal website with network requests.
The banking blockade against WikiLeaks was subsequently found to be illegal in the European courts and most of the companies involved, including PayPal, Visa and MasterCard, have conceded defeat.
A number of the PayPal blockade protesters were charged by US authorities. For almost four years these protesters, most of whom had never engaged in a protest before, faced threats of imprisonment for what was by all accounts a harmless measure against extra-legal economic censorship.
The most well-known subgroup, the "PayPal 14", had a significant victory on Thursday, beating felony convictions and jail time.
Each will still have to pay $5,600 in "restitution", a figure drastically lower than the $5.5 million in "damages" that PayPal initially, and falsely, claimed. Supporters of the protesters, including the Wau Holland Foundation, have raised monies to defray these costs.
Stanley Cohen, a defence attorney for Mercedes Haefer, one of the accused, said last year that the terms of the plea deal were reached "based upon strength, not weakness; based upon principle, not acquiescence".
"It did not involve cooperation and did not involve any of the defendants renouncing their conduct. They all stood up and said: 'We did what you said we did... We believe it was an appropriate act from us and we're willing to pay the price'."
WikiLeaks' publisher Julian Assange said: "When I first heard about these protests against the financial censorship of WikiLeaks I was in prison, and this expression of popular will lifted my spirits. I know first-hand how grinding years of court cases can be, but also the pleasure in standing up for what you believe in. I encourage everyone to do what they can to help the PayPal 14 and others to get back on their feet as they clear these hurdles."

Sweden Tells the UN that Indefinite Detention Without Charge is Fine
05 February 2015
The United Kingdom's costs for its embassy "siege" against Julian Assange, who has not been charged with an offence, has hit 10 million pounds, Scotland Yard confirmed today.
Meanwhile, damning footage has been released from the United Nations.
Sweden fell under fire at the UN over its decision to insist on the detention of Assange for more than 1,500 days without charge. It aborted its own press conference after pointed questions from journalists, and explicitly stated that it had no problem with indefinite detention without charge, not just for Mr Assange, but as a principle. Most countries place strict limits on detention without charge. In the UK and Australia, and in the US (except for Guantanamo Bay), a matter of hours.
Mr Assange said: "Sweden has imported Guantanamo's most shameful legal practice - indefinite detention without charge."
On 26 January 2015 Sweden was the subject of the United Nations Human Rights Commission Universal Periodic Review (UPR) at the UN in Geneva. Fifty-nine human rights organisations filed complaints against Sweden's behaviour in the Assange case as part of the UPR.
UN member states also reviewed, questioned and made recommendations to Sweden on their human rights policies and record. During the session seven member states made recommendations involving Julian Assange's case, raising concerns about how Sweden treats the rights of those with asylum and those it detains pre-trial, and especially those detained without charges: Argentina, Cuba, Ecuador, Macedonia, Nicaragua, Slovakia and Uruguay. Sweden neglected to respond within the session to most of these countries' concerns, except to recall its non-recognition of Mr Assange's asylum.
After the UPR session the Swedish delegation – headed by Annika Söder, State Secretary for Foreign Affairs – held a press conference at 1pm outside the UN room in which the UPR had been conducted. The press conference lasted only 4 minutes before Ms. Söder abruptly cut it off after finding that all the questions were about Sweden's mishandling of Assange's case.
After the press conference WikiLeaks journalist Sarah Harrison (well-known for "rescuing" Edward Snowden from Hong Kong) approached Anders Rönquist, Director-General for Legal Affairs at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, to ask for a response to Ecuador's recommendations. These were that Sweden time-limits any type of detention where the person has not been charged, and that Sweden implements more mechanisms in their prosecutorial procedures to ensure the rights are protected of those that have asylum or are refugees. The Director-General responded that Sweden was under no obligation to limit time in pre-trial detention, or limit the time someone is detained, even if not charged. He stated that he had no issues from a human rights perspective of detaining someone indefinitely, even if they have not been charged.
Julian Assange, Editor-in-Chief of WikiLeaks, has not been charged with any crime in any country although he has been formally detained by Sweden's detention decision for 1,522 days – 960 days in the embassy.
He has been given asylum by the government of Ecuador to protect him from the threat of the United States Government, which is preparing an "espionage" case against Mr Assange and WikiLeaks that is "unprecedented in scale and nature". The offences listed so far total 45 years. Sweden and the United Kingdom are blocking Mr Assange's right to take up his asylum. While Sweden refuses to use any of the standard legal mechanisms available to question Mr Assange over allegations, the UK, whose spending on policing the Ecuadorian embassy in London today, Thursday, 5 February 2015, hits 10 million pounds, prevents him taking up his legal right to asylum.
WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson said: "It is embarrassing to see the UK Government spending more on surveillance and detaining an uncharged political refugee than on its investigation into the Iraq war, which killed hundreds of thousands."
This video was shot by filmmakers "El Colectivo", who are shooting a forthcoming documentary "The Challenge" about former investigating Judge Baltasar Garzón, who attempted to extradite Chilean dictator General Pinochet from the United Kingdom. Judge Garzón is now head of Assange's legal team and was scheduled to give a press conference later that day about the UPR and new developments in the US case against WikiLeaks and its staff.Type your paragraph here.
Edward Snowden: Assange’s Arrest and the Mueller Report Show
a ‘Two-Tiered System of Justice’
In this week's CYBER podcast, we sat down with Edward Snowden to talk
about his life in Russia, Julian Assange, and press freedom.
When Edward Snowden was stranded in a Russian airport, before the government of Vladimir Putin granted him asylum, he turned to WikiLeaks and their lawyers for help. Since then, Snowden has inevitably been linked to WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.
Naturally, when Snowden sat down with CYBER host Ben Makuch, we asked him what he thought about Assange’s case. For Snowden, the story about Assange’s arrest should focus more on Ecuador’s motivations, and the fact that Assange is being held to a different standard than president Donald Trump. The former NSA analyst mentioned the fact that Ecuador got $4.2 billion in funds from the International Monetary Fund in early March as a sign the country was getting closer to the West, and in turn more inclined to give up Assange.
“Journalists who have been covering the story haven’t really been looking at that, because Julian as an individual is such a tragically flawed figure,” Snowden said.
Snowden also criticized people who changed their minds about Assange after the 2016 election.
“A lot of Americans now hate Julian,” he said. “Even though the sort of people who are on the center to the left part of the spectrum had been singing his praises during the Bush administration, now they’re on the other side because of his unfortunate political choices in the 2016 elections.”
Yet, Snowden defended Assange’s journalism work in the lead up to the 2016 elections, arguing the leaked emails, which major media companies covered, showed that the Democratic Party tried to favor Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. That, Snowden said, “had profound public interest.”
As Motherboard reported last week, the Department of Justice says that it isn’t positive that Assange helped whistleblower Chelsea Manning crack a password hash in order to obtain cables related to the Iraq War, but that he’s being charged with that crime anyway. Snowden juxtaposed his treatment with that of Trump’s treatment in Robert Mueller’s report.
“Mueller says it didn’t actually result in obstruction because the people that Trump ordered to do this simply ignored him,” Snowden said. “The DOJ’s defense of not charging Trump is look he tried to commit a crime but he failed to actually do this. And at the same time they’re charging Julian Assange under precisely the opposite theory. Where they say ‘Look, Julian may not have actually cracked a password—we don’t have any evidence that he did, we’re not even going to try to prove that he did, we’re going to say that the agreement to try is enough.”

“So this is a real question of a two-tiered system of justice. Where if you’re the president and you try to commit a crime, you can skate,” he added. “Why is it that journalists are being held to a higher standard of behavior than the president of the United States?”
Finally, Snowden attacked the Department of Justice for charging Assange with conspiracy to crack a password, “a pretty low level infraction relative to the things Assange has been accused of in his life.”

Julian Paul Assange Statement on the US 2016 Election
08 November 2016
On the eve of the election, it is important to restate why we have published what we have.
08 November 2016 By Julian Assange
In recent months, WikiLeaks and I personally have come under enormous pressure to stop publishing what the Clinton campaign says about itself to itself. That pressure has come from the campaign's allies, including the Obama administration, and from liberals who are anxious about who will be elected US President.
On the eve of the election, it is important to restate why we have published what we have.
The right to receive and impart true information is the guiding principle of WikiLeaks – an organization that has a staff and organizational mission far beyond myself. Our organization defends the public's right to be informed.
This is why, irrespective of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election, the real victor is the US public which is better informed as a result of our work.
The US public has thoroughly engaged with WikiLeaks' election related publications which number more than one hundred thousand documents. Millions of Americans have pored over the leaks and passed on their citations to each other and to us. It is an open model of journalism that gatekeepers are uncomfortable with, but which is perfectly harmonious with the First Amendment.
We publish material given to us if it is of political, diplomatic, historical or ethical importance and which has not been published elsewhere. When we have material that fulfills this criteria, we publish. We had information that fit our editorial criteria which related to the Sanders and Clinton campaign (DNC Leaks) and the Clinton political campaign and Foundation (Podesta Emails). No-one disputes the public importance of these publications. It would be unconscionable for WikiLeaks to withhold such an archive from the public during an election.
At the same time, we cannot publish what we do not have. To date, we have not received information on Donald Trump's campaign, or Jill Stein's campaign, or Gary Johnson's campaign or any of the other candidates that fufills our stated editorial criteria. As a result of publishing Clinton's cables and indexing her emails we are seen as domain experts on Clinton archives. So it is natural that Clinton sources come to us.
We publish as fast as our resources will allow and as fast as the public can absorb it.
That is our commitment to ourselves, to our sources, and to the public.
This is not due to a personal desire to influence the outcome of the election. The Democratic and Republican candidates have both expressed hostility towards whistleblowers. I spoke at the launch of the campaign for Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, because her platform addresses the need to protect them. This is an issue that is close to my heart because of the Obama administration's inhuman and degrading treatment of one of our alleged sources, Chelsea Manning. But WikiLeaks publications are not an attempt to get Jill Stein elected or to take revenge over Ms Manning's treatment either.
Publishing is what we do. To withhold the publication of such information until after the election would have been to favour one of the candidates above the public's right to know.
This is after all what happened when the New York Times withheld evidence of illegal mass surveillance of the US population for a year until after the 2004 election, denying the public a critical understanding of the incumbent president George W Bush, which probably secured his reelection. The current editor of the New York Times has distanced himself from that decision and rightly so.
The US public defnds free speech more passionately, but the First Amendment only truly lives through its repeated exercise. The First Amendment explicitly prevents the executive from attempting to restrict anyone's ability to speak and publish freely. The First Amendment does not privilege old media, with its corporate advertisers and dependencies on incumbent power factions, over WikiLeaks' model of scientific journalism or an individual's decision to inform their friends on social media. The First Amendment unapologetically nurtures the democratization of knowledge. With the Internet, it has reached its full potential.
Yet, some weeks ago, in a tactic reminiscent of Senator McCarthy and the red scare, Wikileaks, Green Party candidate Stein, Glenn Greenwald and Clinton's main opponent were painted with a broad, red brush. The Clinton campaign, when they were not spreading obvious untruths, pointed to unnamed sources or to speculative and vague statements from the intelligence community to suggest a nefarious allegiance with Russia. The campaign was unable to invoke evidence about our publications--because none exists.
In the end, those who have attempted to malign our groundbreaking work over the past four months seek to inhibit public understanding perhaps because it is embarrassing to them – a reason for censorship the First Amendment cannot tolerate. Only unsuccessfully do they try to claim that our publications are inaccurate.
WikiLeaks' decade-long pristine record for authentication remains. Our key publications this round have even been proven through the cryptographic signatures of the companies they passed through, such as Google. It is not every day you can mathematically prove that your publications are perfect but this day is one of them.
We have endured intense criticism, primarily from Clinton supporters, for our publications. Many long-term supporters have been frustrated because we have not addressed this criticism in a systematic way or responded to a number of false narratives about Wikileaks’ motivation or sources. Ultimately, however, if WL reacted to every false claim, we would have to divert resources from our primary work.
WikiLeaks, like all publishers, is ultimately accountable to its funders. Those funders are you. Our resources are entirely made up of contributions from the public and our book sales. This allows us to be principled, independent and free in a way no other influential media organization is. But it also means that we do not have the resources of CNN, MSNBC or the Clinton campaign to constantly rebuff criticism.
Yet if the press obeys considerations above informing the public, we are no longer talking about a free press, and we are no longer talking about an informed public.
Wikileaks remains committed to publishing information that informs the public, even if many, especially those in power, would prefer not to see it. WikiLeaks must publish. It must publish and be damned.
The Battle for the Future of Fox
Lachlan Murdoh is in a Trump trap.
by GABRIEL SHERMAN - Vanityfair.com
APRIL 25, 2019
ILLUSTRATION Of Donald Trump BY JOE CIARDIELLO.
From the Vanity Fair Magazine May 2019
“EXECUTIVES ARE VERY WORRIED FOX & FRIENDS WILL BE NEXT”:
AFTER TAKING OVER FOX, LACHLAN MURDOCH IS IN A TRUMP TRAP
When advertisers rebelled at outrage anchors like Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson, Trump called Lachlan’s daddy, Rupert Murdoch, to keep them on the air. Inside the battle for the future of the network.
One evening not long after he was appointed Fox Corp. C.E.O., Lachlan Murdoch invited Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan for dinner at Giorgio's, in Santa Monica. Murdoch was trying to quell a nascent rebellion. Levitan, whose Emmy Award-winning sitcom is produced by Fox's entertainment division and has been the longest-running comedy series on ABC, had joined Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and Ghostbusters director Paul Feig in publicly denouncing Fox News's cheerleading of Trump's immigration policies. “I'm disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do with @FoxNews. This bullshit is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for,” Levitan wrote on June 18, in response to Fox News host Laura Ingraham's calling migrant-children detention facilities along the Mexican border “essentially summer camps.”
Like many in the media business, Levitan hoped that the ascension of the younger generation of Murdochs would usher in more moderate politics at Fox News—glasnost, at long last. Levitan told Lachlan that Fox News was destroying America and implored him to control Ingraham, Sean Hannity, and Tucker Carlson, a person briefed on the conversation told me. But Lachlan quickly dashed that dream. According to the source, Lachlan told Levitan that he wasn't embarrassed by Fox News. He reminded Levitan that the Murdochs had never censored shows like his or The Simpsons or Family Guy, so why couldn't Levitan live with a few conservative voices on one cable-news network?
For Lachlan, at the time, the call was easy enough. The Murdochs were in the process of divesting themselves of Levitan's show, along with the rest of the family's entertainment business, in a $71 billion deal with Disney. The Trump-hostile assets would be gone; peace would reign in Murdoch world. But for Lachlan and Fox, the Trump dissonance didn't end post-Disney deal—in some ways, it's even gotten worse. The network has never been more powerful—and at the same time so vulnerable. Fox programs influence Trump daily, but that has opened the network up to charges that it is State TV. Inside Fox, a long-running cold war between the network's journalists and right-wing, prime-time hosts has turned hot. Fox journalists, bristling at being branded an arm of the Trump White House, are lobbying Fox News C.E.O. Suzanne Scott and president Jay Wallace to rein in Fox & Friends, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, and Jeanine Pirro. “Reporters are telling management that we're being defined by the worst people on our air,” a frustrated senior Fox staffer told me last month. News staffers are feeling emboldened to go after Trump in increasingly visible ways. Fox's opinion hosts, meanwhile, have made the case that the prime-time lineup not only reflects the audience's worldview but is responsible for the majority of the network's advertising revenue and fees paid by cable companies that carry Fox. “We make the money,” an anchor close to Hannity told me. According to a source, prime-time staff complained to Fox management in March when a Muslim producer on Bret Baier's staff tweeted criticism of Jeanine Pirro.
“You can't have a producer attacking talent. [Roger] Ailes would never have allowed that,” a prime-time staffer said. While Fox's prime-time shows generate the lion's share of the network's ratings and ad revenues, there have been increasing issues with lost advertising. Many blue-chip companies don't want to buy time on those shows because of the divisive pro-Trump content. “Executives are very worried Fox & Friends will be next. If advertisers start bailing on them, they're screwed,” an insider said. (Marianne Gambelli, Fox's president of ad sales, responded: “Advertisers know the value of our loyal and engaged audience and we expect no change in our business going forward.”)

ON CONTACT: Wikipedia – A Tool Of The Ruling Elite
Apr 6th 2015,
US INTELLIGENCE WHISTLEBLOWER says that the US government can see nude photos on your phone.
The former NSA security contractor, who is currently exiled in Russia, sat down with English comedian John Oliver to explain US intelligence security.
The controversial Patriot Act, signed into US law in the wake of the September 11 attacks, is due to be reauthorised on 1 June.
Snowden says that he did not steal and leak the information on US spying to solve a problem.#
“I did this to give the American people the chance to decide for themselves the kind of government they want to have.”
“The NSA has the greatest surveillance capabilities that we’ve seen in history. They will argue that they don’t use this for nefarious purposes against American citizens. In some ways, that’s true.
“The real problem is that they are using this capability to make us vulnerable to them and then saying while they have a gun to your head “I’m not going to pull the trigger, trust me”.
He says that he joined the NSA because he feels that mass surveillance can be useful.
“Spies are great when they’re on our side, but when they’re off the leash, they can be very dangerous.”
When challenged by Oliver whether that decision can be made by the public who are uninformed on the issue, he agrees that the US public doesn’t care about foreign surveillance.
The comedian then reframes the issue, asking if people should be worried about their “dick pics” being seen by government agencies.
“Well, the good news is that there’s no program named, ‘The Dick Pic Program’.
“The bad news is that they’re still collecting everybody’s information-including your dick pics.”
“I guess I never thought about putting it into the context of your junk.”
He then explains how and why the US government can take the information, but says that Americans should continue taking pictures of their privates.
“You shouldn’t change your behaviour because a government agency is doing the wrong thing.
“If we sacrifice our values because we’re afraid, we don’t care about those values very much.”
The Snowden interview starts at 14 minutes.
British and American spies hacked company that makes Irish driving licences
Edward Snowden claims the NSA and GCHQ also targeted SIM cards used by companies including Vodafone and O2
Feb 25th 2015,
CONCERNS HAVE BEEN raised over Gemalto, the Dutch company at the centre of a new Edward Snowden leak, after it emerged that the firm provides Irish motorists with their new, credit card sized driver’s licences.
According to documents released by the whistleblower, the American National Security Agency (NSA) and British GCHQ (Government Communications HQ) together broke into the internal network of Gemalto beginning in early 2010.
The Road Safety Authority has confirmed that it has contacted Gemalto about the breach, which experts have warned will have wide-spread implications.
The primary aim of the covert intelligence agencies appears to have been to steal the encryption keys on Gemalto mobile phone SIM cards – allowing spies to monitor the voice and text data of potentially many millions of customers throughout the world.
The Dutch multinational provides some 2 billion SIM cards a year to 450 companies worldwide – including Vodafone and O2/Three in Ireland – and it is not known exactly how many of these were compromised.
Inquiries by TheJournal.ie, however, have found that Gemalto is also the firm responsible for the new “Sealys” driver’s licence in operation in Ireland since October 2013.
A statement on the company’s website describes the importance of security in its roll-out of e-Passports, e-IDs, and Sealys drivers licences in countries including the UK, France, the Netherlands, India, Morocco, and many others.
“Very often, it [the licence] also serves as an identity document, particularly in countries which do not have a national identity card program. This is just one more reason why it has to be highly secure.”
The smaller, credit-card sized licences were introduced under then Transport Minister Leo Varadkar, following an EU directive to harmonise driver’s licenses across the continent.
A spokesperson for the Road Safety Authority (which oversees Ireland’s driver’s licences) would not say whether the RSA was concerned about the alleged breach, but issued this statement:
“The RSA is, through the licence card producer, in touch with Gemalto who are undertaking an investigation into the allegations made around covert surveillance.”
Fergal Crehan, a barrister and data protection expert, expressed concern at the reports:
“If [the NSA and GCHQ] can hack into Gemalto to target SIM cards, there’s nothing to stop them hacking into Gemalto to breach driver’s licences.”
‘We have their entire network’
It has also emerged that Gemalto provides “additional security” to AIB’s online banking service, having signed a multi-year contract in 2011.
“Gemalto is delivering the complete, future-proof Ezio solution including strong authentication software, Ezio Club EMV card readers as well as consulting services,” said a statement at the time.
A spokesperson for the bank told TheJournal.ie they had been in contact with Gemalto, but claimed: “The alleged infringement relates to Gemalto’s SIM production network. We engage with Gemalto for a different product entirely.”
This does not, however, appear to be the case. One of the top-secret slides leaked by Snowden includes a statement by British spies that “We believe we have their entire network.”
Source: The Intercept
Fergal Crehan told TheJournal.ie the alleged British-American hack was “a huge over-reach in what’s considered ‘offering aid to terrorists.’”
“Gemalto employees were targeted simply for doing their jobs – because they had useful information. Does that mean everyone who works in a bank, or in the post office, is now fair game?”
He added that the Irish government should raise such concerns with their British and American counterparts – pointing to “tough talk” among politicians from the Netherlands, in the wake of the revelations.
Dutch MEP Sophie in ‘t Veld last week said US and UK governments were “behaving like cowboys, and nobody is holding them to account.”
Information security consultant Brian Honan summed up the “very worrying” implications of the alleged hack.
“It would mean that anyone using a SIM card made by Gemalto in their mobile phone or other devices, is at risk of mass surveillance by these agencies.”
He also pointed to a certain double standard on the part of the US government, if the allegations are proved true.
“The NSA allegedly hacked into the network of a commercial operator in a foreign country [the Netherlands.]But just a few months ago we saw the United States imposing sanctions on North Korea for allegedly hacking Sony to prevent the release of a film.”
He also pointed to a certain double standard on the part of the US government, if the allegations are proved true.
“The NSA allegedly hacked into the network of a commercial operator in a foreign country [the Netherlands.]But just a few months ago we saw the United States imposing sanctions on North Korea for allegedly hacking Sony to prevent the release of a film.”
Three Ireland confirmed in a statement that they have “issued SIMs to customers that were manufactured by Gemalto,” but said they “have no reason to believe that any of our customers are at risk.”
Vodafone, for its part, told TheJournal.ie:
“We have no further details of these allegations which are industry-wide in nature and are not focused on any one mobile operator.We will support industry bodies and Gemalto in their investigations.”
Gemalto, for its part, on Wednesday confirmed that the NSA/GCHQ attack “probably happened,” but claimed that only the company’s “office networks” were breached.
Their week-long investigation concluded that the hack “could not have resulted in a massive theft of SIM encryption keys.”
The NSA may be able to listen to phone calls around the world
That’s according to Edward Snowden.
Feb 20th 2015
A DUTCH COMPANY that makes SIM cards for mobile phones says it is investigating reports that it was hacked by Britain’s electronic spying agency in cooperation with the U.S. National Security Agency.
Amsterdam-based Gemalto, which describes itself as the world leader in digital security, said in a statement that it could not immediately confirm the reported hack and “had no prior knowledge that these agencies were conducting this operation.”
The company produces two billion SIM cards a year.
A story posted yesterday on the US website The Intercept, based on documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden, said the hack was aimed at stealing codes that would allow both the U.S. and British governments to seamlessly eavesdrop on mobile phones worldwide.
Gemalto says it “will devote all resources necessary to fully investigate” the reported hack.

Government silent as Snowden docs reveal access to Ireland's internet cables
It has been revealed that UK authorities have access to one Irish submarine internet cable.

A NEW RAFT of documents released by Edward Snowden to a German newspaper allegedly details UK authorities’ access to Ireland’s internet traffic.
However, the Government has remained silent on the issue this morning.
The documents, published earlier this week by Süddeutsche Zeitung with the Irish connections identified by The Irish Times, revealed an extensive list of submarine communication cables that the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) has access to.
One of these is SOLAS, a 232km cable that stretches from Kilmore Quay in Wexford to Oxwich Bay in the United Kingdom.
Owners of the cable contacted by The Irish Times denied any knowledge of the activity.
Two other cables, ESAT1 from Kilmore Quay to Sennen Cove and ESAT2 from Southport, also appear on a list of cables.

Earlier this week, as part of an inquiry into the murder of UK solider Lee Rigby, it was revealed that UK authorities collect so much data that they are unable to access or monitor it all.
“However, the resources required to process the vast quantity of data involved mean that, at any one time, GCHQ can only process approximately *** of what they can access,” the report read.
As detailed in this inquiry earlier this week, some security services do have access to internet traffic to facilitate investigations.
UK spies can't handle all of the data they collect
This was disclosed by GCHQ during an inquiry into the investigation of Lee Rigby’s murder.
Nov 25th 2014
A REPORT PUBLISHED this morning on the investigation into death of British solider Lee Rigby has focused attention on how much data intelligence authorities can monitor online.
The Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament found that one of two men who murdered the Fusiller, Michael Adebowale, had discussed online his plan to kill a soldier with an individual overseas, codenamed FOXTROT.
Both had been tracked by MI5, with Michael Adebolajo considered a high-priority person of interest, but authorities failed to spot this conversation.
Adebowale and FOXTROT spoke “in the most graphic and emotive manner” of the plan, five months before murdering Lee Rigby, saying it was prompted by UK involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The finger of blame has been pointed at an unnamed US company. The committee’s chairman has gone so far as to say that they are ‘unintentionally providing a safe haven for terrorists’.
However, while this conversation was missed, intelligence agencies knew an awful lot about the pair – and everyone else.
One section of the report explains that Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, can target internet communication that travels over major internet cables.
While they say that they can only view a small level of internet traffic, the amount of data is so large they only have resources to access a certain amount of it at a time.
Here’s the section in full:
“GCHQ also has access to communications as they move over the internet via the major internet cables. This provides the capability to intercept a small proportion of internet traffic: in theory, GCHQ can access around ***% of global internet traffic and approximately ***% of internet traffic entering or leaving the UK.
However, the resources required to process the vast quantity of data involved mean that, at any one time, GCHQ can only process approximately *** of what they can access.
This means that the odds of collecting the content of the communications of an individual who is not specifically being targeted are *** – even if their communications have met other selection criteria they are ***.
If GCHQ had unknowingly ‘picked up’ the exchange between Adebowale and FOXTROT using this collection capability, the fact that neither Adebowale nor FOXTROT were under active investigation at the time means that the communication would not have been selected for further analysis.”
Facebook named as host of chat which described horrific murder plan for a soldier
After the solider’s death, an online discussion about killing a solider between one of the men and someone overseas was uncovered.
Nov 25th 2014
TWO ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS who murdered Fusilier Lee Rigby in a London street had been under scrutiny by intelligence services, a report has found, and one had expressed his intention of killing a soldier in an online exchange months before the attack.
The BBC has learned that the previously unnamed company ‘on whose system the exchange took place’ is Facebook.
The Silicon Valley firm has been accused of providing a safe haven for terrorists.
On the platform, Michael Adebowale said he wanted to kill a soldier and discussed plans to do so in the “most graphic and emotive manner”.
The UK’s Intelligence and Security Committee said Facebook believes it not does not have an obligation to identify conversations such as these.
The ICS says that if British spies had known of the declaration, “there is a significant possibility” they could have prevented the murder.
But the online exchange was only discovered after Adebowale and Michael Adebolajo killed Fusilier Rigby in May 2013.
The lawmakers concluded in the report published today that spy agencies had made mistakes, but that with the knowledge they had at the time they “were not in a position to prevent the murder of Fusilier Rigby”.
The two men, Adebowal and Michael Adebolajo, had appeared in seven different investigations by MI5.
A statement from the committee read:
“There were errors in these operations, where processes were not followed, decisions not recorded, or delays encountered.”
“However we do not consider that any of these errors, taken individually, were significant enough to have made a difference.”
While Adebolajo had been considered ‘high priority’ for MI5 investigations, “Adebowale was never more than a low level [subject of interest] and the agencies took appropriate action based on the rigorous threshold set down in law”.
However, if authorities had uncovered before that attack a conversation about killing a solider between Adebowale and an individual overseas, ‘he would have become a top priority’.
The statement also notes that major US companies consulted during the investigation did not actively monitor and review suspicious content, and instead rely on user reports:
What is clear is that the one party which could have made a difference was the company on whose system the exchange took place. However, this company does not regard themselves as under any obligation to ensure that they identify such threats, or to report them to the authorities. We find this unacceptable: however unintentionally, they are providing a safe haven for terrorists.”
They also did not feel compelled to comply with UK warrants, although new legislation has been brought in to amend this.
The chair of the report, MP Sir Malcom Rifkind, siad Rigby’s death “was first and foremost a tragedy for his family and friends”.
“Our thoughts are with them today.”

Trump: Russia investigations an attempted 'coup' By BIANCA QUILANTAN
“This was a coup,” Trump told host Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity” in his first interview since the Mueller report's release. “This was an attempted overthrow of the United States
President Donald Trump on Thursday called the FBI probe into his 2016 campaign and subsequent investigations into Russian election meddling “an attempted overthrow" of his administration.
“This was a coup,” Trump told host Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity” in his first interview since the Mueller report's release. “This was an attempted overthrow of the United States
Trump insisted that special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election had gone “hog wild to find something about the administration which obviously wasn't there.”
Trump repeatedly said the 448-page Mueller report, a redacted version of which was released last week, proved no collusion and obstruction. He called the investigation a “one-sided witch hunt” by “angry Democrats” who are “very serious Trump .
“We have nothing to do with Russia except that we have been tougher on Russia than any administration in 50 years,” Trump said.
Trump also went on to say that people in his campaign had suffered greatly as a result of the Mueller probe, and that investigators had spent the past two years “ruining their lives.”
But he said the tables have turned with the Justice Department inspector general's pending investigation of the FISA process in the FBI probe of Trump campaign members, adding that some involved in the process should be "very nervous." The DOJ has said the investigation is expected to be completed by May or June.
Trump called the FBI's campaign investigation conducted in 2016 "the greatest political scandal in the history of our country. Again, bigger than Watergate. Because it means so much this was a coup. This wasn't stealing information from an office in the Watergate apartments. This was an attempted coup."
“The biggest problem with the Mueller report, he didn't mention any of this.” Trump later added.
“This was a coup,” Trump told host Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity” in his first interview since the Mueller report's release. “This was an attempted overthrow of the United States government.

Stossel: The Science Around Male Brains vs. Female Brains
It's politically correct to say men and women are mentally the same, but Stossel lays out science that says otherwise.
JOHN STOSSEL AND MAXIM LOTT | 10.15.2019
Lately, we've been hearing that men and women are biologically the same.
A BBC video claims, "There seems to be no purely male brains versus female brains."
"Seems like we're just not that different after all," echoes HuffPost.
Politically correct corporations act as if that were true. When Google engineer James Damore merely suggested that biological differences might explain why half the people in tech are not women, he was fired.
Professor Gina Rippon recently wrote a book that confirms the popular narrative. "New neuroscience that shatters the myth of the female brain" is the subtitle.
Rippon tells Stossel it's important to tell people that that men's and women's brains are the same, so people don't mindlessly follow gender stereotypes.
Stossel pushes back, "It's not natural that in school, more boys want to play football and more girls want to do ballet? I want to run and bang into people."
Rippon responds: "Well, I think actually girls might want to run and bang into people, but because there's an image that girls don't do that, they're stopped from doing that."
That's popular to say, but Stossel has covered research that shows big innate differences. In one experiment, students were blindfolded and then walked through the maze of tunnels. They were then asked which direction they'd moved. Men had a much better sense of that than women.
In another experiment, students were left in a cluttered room to wait. Later, women were much better at remembering all kinds of details about that room. Men were more likely to say: "I dunno, some stuff."
Of course, the students may already have been molded by a sexist society, Stossel notes. But newborns also show gender differences. Boys tend to look longer at objects, like tractor parts, while infant girls stared more at faces.
Stossel asks Rippon about that, who responds: "If you look very closely at the data, a third of the girls actually seem to respond more to the tractor parts than the boys."
"A third," Stossel repeats.
"A third," Rippon replies.
"But two-thirds didn't!" Stossel retorts.
Rippon says the study should be redone. "Do it again with a bigger set of newborns [and] a better controlled set of stimuli."
Evolutionary psychologist Diana Fleischman says there's overwhelming evidence of biological differences.
"Cultures around the world show very similar differences between men and women," she points out. "Men are more likely to seek status, women are more likely to take care of children. Women are more likely to stay in the home. Men are more likely to do dangerous, aggressive things like go to war."
Stossel pushes back: "Because we men have been socialized: 'Work's important!' And you women have been told by your mothers, 'Take care of the kids.'"
"Why would you see that across every culture in the world?" Fleischman responds.
"Even if you look at nonhuman animals…monkeys…they don't have culture, yet there's still these very large differences between males and females," she adds. In those species, too, males focus on war and status, while females nurture children.
Among scientists, these differences are well-accepted, Stossel notes. The journal Neuroscience cited 70 studies that found differences.
Stossel asked Gina about some of the most obvious mental differences.
"I stutter. Most stutterers are boys. It's not a brain difference?"
"Yeah, yeah. There are those kinds of brain differences and I'm definitely not a brain difference denier," Rippon replied.
"It's kind of how you've been presented by much of the media," Stossel responds.
The journal Nature, for example, ran an uncritical review of her book headlined, "Neurosexism: the myth that men and women have different brains."
The Guardian summarized her book with: "Are there any significant differences based on sex alone? The answer, she says, is no."
"Perhaps they haven't read the book," Rippon says.
Fleishman argues: "Gina Rippon seems to be a sex difference denier depending on kind of what audience that she's talking to."
In her speeches, Rippon does say things like: "They're thinking there's differences between men and women. People like me stand up and say 'actually no, there's not.'"
"It's an incredibly alluring message," Fleischman says. "It's really sad that it's not right."
Rippon worries that talk of sex difference will increase sexism, but Fleischman notes that minimizing sex differences can hurt people, too, by pushing them into fields they're not naturally suited for. Politicians pass laws to force "equality."
"Saying that men and women have different aptitudes isn't sexism. It's actually a statement about the true nature of the world," Fleischman says. "If we keep saying that those differences in what men and women choose to do are because of sexism, nobody's going to end up happy with what they're doing, and we're going to keep making laws to remedy what's actually just the result of freedom."

Julian Assange Is Being Used as a Smokescreen
SCHEER INTELLIGENCE PODCAST
Hosted by Robert Scheer Apr. 26, 2019

The recent arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has provoked a wide spectrum of responses in media, but many journalists seem to recognize the Trump Administration’s attack on the publisher as setting a dangerous precedent for freedom of the press. Bruce Shapiro, a contributing editor to The Nation and the executive director of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma at Columbia University School of Journalism, disagrees with Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer about Assange’s character, but not about the larger issues at hand.
Shapiro’s main concern about the WikiLeaks founder’s actions center around the alleged assistance he proffered whistleblower Chelsea Manning when she was trying to crack a password and the ethical ramifications of this decision. And yet, the potential use of the Espionage Act, which Shapiro reminds us, “has never been used against a journalist in the history of the United States, or against a publisher” is far more disconcerting to the journalist.
“The danger to press freedom by allowing the government to root around in source relationships like this, far outweighs whatever my judgments on Assange’s own character or state of mind may be,” the journalist tells the Truthdig Editor in Chief in the latest installment of Scheer Intelligence. “I think what we have to focus on now is how the government is … exploiting, you know, the complicating factors of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks to undermine all kinds of watchdog reporting here in the United States.”
What’s at stake, in other words, is not one man’s life but rather the very essence of the press freedoms the U.S. was founded on. Assange’s arrest is about national security reporting, the criminalization of source-journalist relationships involving leaking, and, more broadly, an “attempt to criminalize investigative reporting,” argues Shapiro. The Nation editor also notes the courage behind Manning’s decision to go back to jail rather than take further part in the government investigation into Assange.
“Chelsea Manning is doing something that I find unprecedented in the history of American journalism,” says Shapiro. “We often hear, or from time to time hear, about journalists going to jail to protect a source. I’ve never before heard of a source willingly go to jail to protect a journalist.”
Listen to the entire discussion between the two journalists regarding Assange, the rare heroism of whistleblowers and the government’s menacing assault on the First Amendment.

WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange says there is a "high chance" he would be killed in a US jail
Edited on Thu Dec-23-10 10:24 PM by Turborama
WIKILEAKS chief Julian Assange says there is a "high chance" he would be killed in a US jail if he were to be extradited from Britain on espionage charges. The Australian is on bail in Britain fighting a bid by Sweden to extradite him over sex assault claims, but Washington is believed to be considering how to indict him over the leaking of thousands of US diplomatic cables. Mr Assange told The Guardian it would be "politically impossible" for Britain to send him across the Atlantic, adding that the government of Prime Minister David Cameron would want to show it had not been "co-opted" by Washington. "Legally the UK has the right to not extradite for political crimes. Espionage is the classic case of political crimes. It is at the discretion of the UK government as to whether to apply to that exception," he said. Mr Assange added that if the United States succeeded in getting him extradited from Britain or Sweden, then there was a "high chance" of him being killed "Jack Ruby-style" in an American prison.

A historical refresher for anyone who might not know what Jack Ruby did...
On Sunday, November 24 Oswald was being led through the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters preparatory to his transfer to the county jail when, at 11:21 a.m., Dallas nightclub operator Jack Ruby stepped from the crowd and shot Oswald in the abdomen. Oswald died at 1:07 p.m. at Parkland Memorial Hospital—the same hospital where Kennedy had died two days earlier.
Four years after Eric Garner’s death, killer cop faces NYPD disciplinary hearing
By Leslie Murtagh
12 December 2018
Last week, more than four years after New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo killed unarmed Eric Garner on the streets of Staten Island with an illegal chokehold, Pantaleo faced the first hearing in a New York City Police Department (NYPD) disciplinary trial set to begin in May. Pantaleo’s supervisor, Sgt. Kizzy Adonis, will also face a departmental trial.
If convicted, Pantaleo, who was placed on desk duty and had his salary increased to $120,000 after the 2014 incident, could face penalties ranging from the loss of vacation days to the loss of his job. NYPD union officials, however, who say a chokehold never occurred, are holding out the possibility of no conviction taking place, which might put Pantaleo back on the streets of New York in uniform.
Garner, 43, was approached by police trying to apprehend him for allegedly selling cigarettes illegally. After Garner denied that he was selling anything, Pantaleo put him in a chokehold from behind, as three other NYPD officers piled on top of him and held his head down while Garner gasped, “I can’t breathe,” eleven times before going unconscious. Chokeholds, defined as “pressure to the throat or windpipe, which may prevent or hinder breathing or reduce intake of air,” were banned from NYPD use in 1993.
This explicit scene of police brutality and subsequent murder was caught on film in its entirety by Garner’s friend, sparking mass outrage by the millions who viewed it. Garner’s case, along with other high-profile police killings in 2014 such as that of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, led to large-scale demonstrations by workers and students in New York City and across the US.
In addition to the clarity of the events as they were recorded on video, the New York City Medical Examiner’s office classified Garner’s death a homicide resulting from “compression of neck, compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police.” But in a miscarriage of justice orchestrated by Staten Island’s then-District Attorney Daniel Donovan, a grand jury in 2014 decided not to indict Pantaleo, and he has never faced any criminal charges for his violent and illegal actions.
The Department of Justice (DOJ), responsible for monitoring local law enforcement conduct and pursuing civil rights offenses, never filed charges against Pantaleo under Obama, and has yet to do so under Trump. This, unfortunately, is not uncommon, with federal prosecutors failing to bring charges against police officers in 96 percent of civil rights cases in the past decade. The DOJ did tell the NYPD that it had no objection to an internal departmental trial.
This dragging out of the case over many years under both Democratic and Republican administrations shows the true interests of the ruling class seeking to protect their enforcers, while dissipating wide-spread anger with promises of possible action that end in yet further delays.
This federal tactic also facilitates the indefinite delay of any punitive measures by the NYPD, which has claimed that it is standard procedure to wait until the federal government resolves its own case on a matter before proceeding to an internal disciplinary trial. With the federal statute of limitations running out in July, the NYPD has finally begun Pantaleo’s trial ahead of any decision by the Justice Department, charging him with reckless and intentional use of a chokehold.
After the brief initial hearing last week, a press conference took place outside the NYPD courtroom. In a bizarre statement, Pantaleo’s lawyer, Stuart London, told reporters, “The problem is we need to educate both the media and the public that not only was there never a chokehold, but officer Pantaleo was just making a simple arrest using a seat belt technique [hooking an arm underneath an individual’s arm while wrapping the other around their torso].”
London said that a defense medical expert will confirm this information in trial, while the city’s Medical Examiner’s office refuted London’s statements, standing by its original conclusion that Gardner died of chokehold injuries.
Patrick Lynch, the president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, made a truthful though chilling statement: “We are going to bring forth evidence that Officer Pantaleo did exactly what he was trained to do.” This aligns with how Lynch described Pantaleo immediately following Garner’s death in 2014, stating that the killer cop was “a model of what we want a police officer to be.”
Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, who attended the hearing, told reporters she had “mixed emotions” and “felt sort of numb being in the room with my son’s murderer.”
The original internal police report, signed off on by Kizzy Adonis, omitted any mention of a chokehold. It would almost certainly have remained the official record if not for the video evidence. A vast amount of police violence goes unreported, and the possibility that a police officer will be tried for a murder, or even if he is tried, found guilty, is minuscule.
The very fact that Pantaleo has been free for years is a demonstration of the reactionary official political culture in the US that protects those armed forces the ruling elite rely on to police class lines and suppress growing opposition to unprecedented levels of social inequality.

Rape accuser took "trophy photo", says Assange
December 27th 2010
Taken from: http://www.awn.bz
Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilen
WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange
Anna Ardin (the main official Swedish complainant) is often described by the media as a “leftist”. Anna Ardin has ties to the US-financed anti-Castro and anti-communist groups. She published her anti-Castro diatribes (see here and here) in the Swedish-language publication Revista de Asignaturas Cubanas put out by Misceláneas de Cuba. From Oslo, Professor Michael Seltzer points out that this periodical is the product of a well-financed anti-Castro organization in Sweden. He further notes that the group is connected with Union Liberal Cubana led by Carlos Alberto Montaner whose CIA ties were exposed here. Note that Ardin was deported from Cuba for subversive activities. In Cuba she interacted with the feminist anti-Castro group Las damas de blanco (the Ladies in White). This group receives US government funds and the convicted anti-communist terrorist Luis Posada Carriles is a friend and supporter. Wikipedia quotes Hebe de Bonafini, president of the Argentine Madres de Plaza de Mayo as saying that “the so-called Ladies in White defend the terrorism of the United States.”
However we do not have to accept the single-bullet theory. Life is more complicated than that. In addition to her anti-Castro, pro-CIA streak, Anna Ardin apparently indulges in her favorite sport of male-bashing. A Swedish forum reports that she is an expert on sexual harassment and the male “master suppression techniques”. Once, as she was lecturing, a male student in the audience looked at his notes instead of staring at her. Anna Ardin reported him for sexual harassment because he discriminated against her for being a woman and because she claimed he made use of the male “master suppression technique” in trying to make her feel invisible. As soon as the student learned about her complaint, he contacted her to apologize and explain himself. Anna Ardin’s response was to once again report him for sexual harassment, again because he was using the “master suppression technique”, this time to belittle her feelings.
Ardin is apparently involved with a “Christian” Social-Democrat group. The Swedish church has a precious few male priests: what was once the struggle for female equality has ended up with men being effectively removed from service. Nowadays very few Swedish male-female couples marry in the church, or get married at all; most Swedish gay couples, however, are proud to become “man and wife” in the church. This is all good news for wealthy Swedes: deserted churches sell their properties (once enjoyed by the community) to be fenced off by the nouveau riche created by the latest privatization wave. So much for Swedish social democracy!
The second accuser, Sofia Wilen, 26, is Anna’ friend. Here is a video of an Assange press conference where one can see the girls together. Those present at the conference marveled at her groupie-like behavior. Though rock stars are used to girls dying to have sex with them, it is much less common in the harsh field of political journalism. Sofia worked hard to bed Assange, according to her own confession; she was also the first to complain to police. She is little known and her motives are vague. Why might a young woman (who shares her life with American artist Seth Benson) pursue such a sordid political adventure?//
