Freedom of the Press is Dead Worldwide
CIA Director Pompeo claims Wikileaks is a "hostile secret service," not a medium and Julian Assange is not a journalist. Wikileaks embodies what a free press should do as the fourth branch - control power. This indispensable function as a democratic watchdog is the reason why press freedom is an essential asset of all constitutional states. Watchdogs must be under special protection. Democracy cannot function without watchdogs.

Uncle Tom's Empire
April 16th, 2019

I don't normally do this kind of thing, but, given the arrest of Julian Assange last week, and the awkward and cowardly responses thereto, I felt it necessary to abandon my customary literary standards and spew out a spineless, hypocritical "hot take" professing my concern about the dangerous precedent the U.S. government may be setting by extraditing and prosecuting a publisher for exposing American war crimes and such, while at the same time making it abundantly clear how much I personally loathe Assange, and consider him an enemy of America, and freedom, and want the authorities to crush him like a cockroach.

Now I want to be absolutely clear. I totally defend Assange and Wikileaks, and the principle of freedom of the press, and whatever. And I am all for exposing American war crimes (as long as it doesn't endanger the lives of the Americans who committed those war crimes, or inconvenience them in any way). At the same time, while I totally support all that, I feel compelled to express my support together with my personal loathing of Assange, who, if all those important principles weren't involved, I would want to see taken out and shot, or at least locked up in Super-Max solitary ... not for any crime in particular, but just because I personally loathe him so much.

Why Russiagate Will Never Go Away
Given that Russia's economy today is smaller than Italy's and its military budget wouldn't buy a toilet seat or hammer in the U.S. military procurement system, the question of why Russia would seem a great mystery outside of history. And left unstated is that the U.S. defense industry needs enemies to survive. 'Radical Islam,' an invention of oil and gas industry flacks that turned out to be serviceable for marketing Tomahawk missiles and stealth fighter jets as well, lost some of its luster when ISIS and Al Qaeda came over to 'our side.' And humanitarian intervention ain't what it used to be with Libya reduced to rubble and open-air slave markets now dotting the landscape.

Finally, apologists for Russiagate claim that it has been nowhere near as dangerous as WMD lies. Let's see: a cadre of national security officials spent two-and-one-half years claiming that it has secret evidence that the President of the U.S. colluded with the leader of a foreign government to assume power and then use his office for the benefit of that foreign leader. Following, the domestic press claimed that the U.S. 'was under attack' and 'was at war' with this foreign power. Meanwhile, the U.S. went about arming anti-Russian militias on Russia's border while unilaterally abrogating a short-and-intermediate range nuclear weapons treaty after publicly announcing that it was 'modernizing' its stockpile of short-and-intermediate-range nuclear weapons.

Roger Waters On Assange Arrest: Freedom Of Information "Absolutely Essential"
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6smG6po8YVw

(Pink Floyd bassist and composer, Roger) Waters asks: "What is Julian Assange if he's [not a journalist]?"

"Theresa May comes from a long line of lackeys, Cameron before her and Blair before him... We've all seen what's happened since the Second World War with the moving away from the welfare state that the Attlee government put in place... towards more and more dependence on the United States, with their nuclear submarine bases in Scotland and so on and so forth; we know that we are 'under the thumb'. Well we, the British people, need to get out from under the thumb and say: No. This is wrong. This is illegal."

Binney: NSA Has 32 Pages of Communications Between Seth Rich—Julian Assange
Bill Binney, one of the founding fathers of the NSA, and universally acknowledged to be one of the most brilliant people who ever worked for the U.S. government, has offered clarification on this issue in a brief interview with Ed Butowsky he gave two days ago.

In this interview, he offers a devastating rebuke of the fraudulence of the Mueller report's analysis of "Russian hacking". But the truly fascinating part occurs at about 6:40, where Binney discusses Clevenger's FOIA request.

Here's what Binney says:

"Ty Clevenger has FOIAed information from NSA asking for any data that involved both Seth Rich and also Julian Assange.

And they responded by saying we've got 15 files, 32 pages, but they're all classified in accordance with executive order 13526 covering classification, and therefore you can't have them.

That says that NSA has records of communications between Seth Rich and Julian Assange. I mean, that's the only business that NSA is in&#8202;—&#8202;copying communications between people and devices."

The financial markets seem to be the measure of all things. Corporations are subsidized with trillions. In their "competition," small and medium-size businesses are the fools.

Fake News Tsunami - Trump's 'Collusion' And Corbyn As 'Dangerous Hero'
In Alerts 2019 Post 05 April 2019 Last Updated on 05 April 2019 By Editor

According to corporate journalism, a tidal wave of 'fake news' has long been threatening to swamp their wonderful work reporting real news. The ProQuest media database finds fully 805,669 hits for newspaper articles mentioning the term 'fake news'. The key sources of such fakery are said to be social media, and above all, of course, Russia.

It is a perfect irony, then, that 'the Mueller report', conducted by the US Department of Justice Special Counsel's Office, headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller, 'did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities'.

The CIA Takeover of America in the 1960s is the Story of Our Times
A Quasi-Review of A Lie Too Big To Fail: The Real History of the Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy by Lisa Pease

April 2nd, 2019

'We're all puppets,' the suspect [Sirhan Sirhan] replied, with more truth than he could have understood at that moment.

— Lisa Pease, quoting from the LAPD questioning of Sirhan

When Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated on June 5, 1968, the American public fell into a hypnotic trance in which they have remained ever since. The overwhelming majority accepted what was presented by government authorities as an open and shut case that a young Palestinian American, Sirhan Sirhan, had murdered RFK because of his support for Israel, a false accusation whose ramifications echo down the years. That this was patently untrue and was contradicted by overwhelming evidence made no difference.

Sirhan did not kill Robert Kennedy, yet he remains in jail to this very day. Robert Kennedy, Jr., who was 14 years old at the time of his father's death, has visited Sirhan in prison, claims he is innocent, and believes there was another gunman. Paul Schrade, an aide to the senator and the first person shot that night, also says Sirhan didn't do it. Both have plenty of evidence. And they are not alone.

Disinviting Jordan Peterson: The Faculty of Divinity, Cambridge and Approved Ideas
March 26th, 2019

He has sent so many cliques and groups into titters of anger, and the indignant have attempted to turn on him. The university environment should be the last place where dangerous ideas, and views, are stifled and stomped upon. In actual fact, we are seeing the reverse; from students unions to middle- and upper-managerial parasites and administrators, the contrarian idea must be boxed, the controversial speaker silenced and sent beyond the pale. Dissent and disagreement are lethal toxin to such affected notions as "diversity" and "inclusiveness".

It should be very clear that meaningless terms such as diversity and inclusiveness do very little to the content of actual intellectual conversation. Ideas are there to be debated, not accepted by high caste strictures. The modern academic environment suggests something quite opposite: a policing rationale, an insistence on thought control that is insidious and all too common in managed structures. When incorporated into the university structure, the bureaucrat takes precedence over the intellectual, the mindless cherry picker over the polymath. The more ideas you have, the more of a threat you will be, requiring regulation and the occasional ostracising. In broader public spaces, this may even require you losing a platform altogether.

Which leads us, then, to Jordan Peterson, agent provocateur and psychology professor at University of Toronto who was led to believe that he would be taking up residence for two months at the Faculty of Divinity in Cambridge University in Michaelmas Term. In a statement to the Cambridge student newspaper, Varsity, a University spokesperson confirmed "that Jordan Peterson requested a visiting fellowship, and an initial offer has been rescinded after a further review."

The media and the Mueller report
27 March 2019

The report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a political debacle for the Democratic Party and the corporate media. Day after day, the bulk of the establishment press, led by the New York Times, pumped out unsubstantiated claims and outright lies accusing Russia of subverting the 2016 election and branding Trump as an agent of Putin.

Mueller's report, after a sprawling investigation lasting nearly two years, has exposed the entire anti-Russia narrative as a hoax, perpetrated on the American people in pursuit of reactionary political ends. Journalist Matt Taibbi published an article on Saturday headlined "It's official: Russiagate is this generation's WMD," in which he wrote: "The Iraq war faceplant damaged the reputation of the press. Russiagate just destroyed it... As a purely journalistic failure, however, WMD was a pimple compared to Russiagate."

Those responsible—from the editorial offices of the major media outlets to the decision-makers in the Democratic Party—served as conduits fro the propaganda of factions of the CIA, the NSA and the FBI. They opposed Trump and sought either to remove him or politically cripple him on the grounds that he was insufficiently belligerent toward Russia and too reluctant to escalate military action in Syria and elsewhere.

The anti-Russia campaign revived the witch-hunting methods of the McCarthyite red scare. Its aim was threefold: first, to create an atmosphere of hysteria to justify preparations for war against nuclear-armed Russia; second, to channel the mass popular opposition to Trump in a right-wing, pro-war direction; and, third, to create a pretext for internet censorship and other attacks on democratic rights.

A Russiagate Requiem
April 2nd, 2019

So the Mueller report is finally in, and it appears that hundreds of millions of Americans have, once again, been woefully bamboozled. Weird, how this just keeps on happening. At this point, Americans have to be the most frequently woefully bamboozled people in the entire history of woeful bamboozlement. If you didn't know better, you'd think we were all a bunch of hopelessly credulous imbeciles that you could con into believing almost anything, or that our brains had been bombarded with so much propaganda from the time we were born that we couldn't really even think anymore.

That's right, as I'm sure you're aware by now, it turns out President Donald Trump, a pompous former reality TV star who can barely string three sentences together without totally losing his train of thought and barking like an elephant seal, is not, in fact, a secret agent conspiring with the Russian intelligence services to destroy the fabric of Western democracy. After two long years of bug-eyed hysteria, Inspector Mueller came up with squat. Zip. Zero. Nichts. Nada. Or, all right, he indicted a bunch of Russians that will never see the inside of a courtroom, and a few of Trump's professional sleazebags for lying and assorted other sleazebag activities (so I guess that was worth the $25 million of taxpayers' money that was spent on this circus).

NSA's James Clapper Sings: Rats Out Obama For Spying OnTrump Campaign
Clapper (speaking with Anderson Cooper on CNN)

JAMES CLAPPER: Yes, well, this is — yes, as we've come to know the President, he is not a stalwart for a consistency or coherence. So it's very hard to explain that. One point I'd like to make, Anderson, that I don't think has come up very much before, and I'm alluding now to the President's criticism of President Obama for all that he did or didn't do before he left office with respect to the Russian meddling. If it weren't for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably, special counsel Mueller's investigation.

President Obama is responsible for that, and it was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. I think it's an important point when it comes to critiquing President Obama.

Judicial Watch Sues For Records Of Communication Between James Clapper, John Brennan, CNN
MARCH 27, 2019

(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced today it has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) seeking records of communications between former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and CNN around the time the Clinton-Democrat National Committee Trump dossier was being pitched to key media outlets.

A House report detailed that Clapper leaked information regarding the dossier to CNN in January 2017. The former ODNI chief signed on as an analyst for CNN in August 2017.

Judicial Watch is also seeking records of communications between Clapper and Obama CIA Director John Brennan regarding the dossier , which was authored by former British spy and FBI payee Christopher Steele.

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v. Office of the Director of National Intelligence and Central Intelligence Agency (No. 1:19-cv-00776)) after the agencies failed to respond to an April 23, 2018 FOIA request.

Papadopoulos Set Up By Mueller?
remember George Papadopoulos? Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, and the mysterious professor Joseph Mifsud? According to Papadopoulos, a woman who (he much later discovered) had a direct working relationship with (later-to-be) Special Counsel Robert Mueller — U.K.-based FBI lawyer and legal consultant Arvinder Sambei — introduced him to a series of contacts in Europe who were U.S.-U.K. intelligence assets in diplomatic circles and simultaneously worked with the Obama administration's intelligence gathering agencies (CIA, FBI, NSA, Department of Justice). Papadopoulos says he was being surveilled and monitored by these individuals and entities for a setup of the Trump presidential campaign with purported Russian ties.

Papadopoulos' U.S. Congressional testimony from last year has now been officially released in full and can be corroborated with his present-day comments (he had tweeted about Downer and other Europe intelligence activity during 2018).

He's published a new book titled 'Deep State Target' and is interviewed and speaks at length about the plot here :

A Match Made In Hell: Israel, Neoconservatism And The Military Industrial Complex
Why exactly does the US government go to war with so many of Israel's enemies, starting with Iraq? The costs have been enormous, the results horrible, the rewards imperceptible. The Iraq war was the second in a long series of US invasions, bombings and destructions of majority-Muslim states. Despite the devastation they cause and the lack of results, the regime change wars show no sign of slowing. How does this happen?

The explanation lies in the MIC and a deeply sinister marriage that has grown between them and Israel. Israel's wars have become major parts of the MIC's business plan. Every bomb Israel drops; every missile the US fires, every Muslim country the US invades makes money for the MIC. Israel receives over $3 billion in military aid from Washington every year. Most of this money immediately returns to US military corporations to buy weapons, making Israel a major profit center for them.

By allying with the MIC, Israeli leaders and their militant supporters, who became known as the Neoconservatives set out to reshape the world. The Pentagon and military corporations already had powerful lobbying programs in place. But industry lobbying typically took the form of 'Buy our product;' 'Try this weapon system.' They didn't lobby for new wars. Neoconservatives realized that if they could provide the enemies and promote the wars, the MIC would reap the profits, strengthening Israel in the process.

Film review: Dick Cheney: Revolutionary for the Super-Rich
In the film, the Cheney group appears like a resolute Mafia clan that took over the levers of power in no time after the election. The vice-president long ignored by the public pulled all the strings in all important areas: military, energy, bureaucracy and foreign policy. This group organized several massive wars presumably for industry-lobbyists - for base motives and with great criminal energy.

NZ Massacre Manifesto: Planned Years-In-Advance To Prompt U.S. Civil War Over Gun Rights
Excerpts from the posted-online manifesto of the New Zealand mosque mass murderer, include his claims that he planned an attack "roughly two years in advance".

The mass murdering shooter also claimed that he "could have chosen any weapons or means" including arson, explosives, blund instruments, vehicular attacks (incluiding cars, trucks and aircraft) but selected firearms "for the affect [sic] it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they [sic] would provide and the affect [sic] it could have on the politics of United states and thereby the political situation of the world."

"The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines. With enough pressure the left wing within the United states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the US will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty. This attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines," the shooter's manifesto wrote.
