Opinion: How Pseudo Events Are Used by Media to Manufacture Controversy

Originally published @ The Epoch Times

The public was lied to for close to two years by legacy news outlets and public figures with claims there was “evidence” that the Trump administration colluded with Russia. Contrary to their claims, the Mueller report showed there was no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia. The report showed that all those rumors of evidence, all those anonymous sources, all of it was lies.

What’s important to remember is that for these outlets and public figures, facts don’t matter. What matters is how they can twist the facts to keep the public misled and distracted in order to keep their false narratives alive.

During an April 23 White House press briefing, a CNBC reporter asked whether or not Trump is “going to accept Russian help in the 2020 election?”

White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley responded, saying “I don’t understand the question … he’s already denounced multiple times Russian involvement.” He noted the Mueller report shows Russian attempts to interfere were known since 2014, and “Barack Obama did nothing … We now know why. He thought Hillary Clinton would, in fact, win the election.”

Maintaining False Narratives

Questions such as whether or not Trump would “accept Russian help” in the upcoming elections build on the false narrative these legacy outlets have been pushing. They perpetuate false narratives by keeping them alive in the public consciousness.

Yet, by posing a question in a way that assumes something took place, it forced the press secretary to provide comments these outlets could use for new headlines.

Hillary Clinton pulled a similar move the same day, and stated on April 23 her opinion on Trump in the Mueller report that “any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted.”

Keep in mind, that’s the same Hillary Clinton who was let off on the investigations into her use of a private email server to handle classified information. The DOJ under Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch had set an unusually high threshold for prosecuting Clinton, effectively ensuring from the outset that she would not be charged.

Meanwhile, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), who serves as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is being accused by ranking member Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) of misleading the public on the Mueller report by falsely claiming that the special counsel intended for Congress to decide whether Trump obstructed justice.

An open letter to Nadler points to the specific questions in the Mueller report, and notes: “The passages are not, in fact, an invitation for Congress to pick up where the Report left off. As you are certainly aware, the legislative branch writes the laws and the executive branch enforces them.”

After providing additional evidence and quotes from Nadler, it states, “Your deliberate misrepresentations to the American public threaten the fundamental separation-of-power doctrine, are dangerous, and need to stop.”

Altering Meaning

The idea is not to alter the information being released, but instead to alter the context of the information. By altering the context, it changes the conclusions people come to after seeing or reading the information being released.

It’s classic psychological warfare at play, meant to alter the way people interpret information.

The legacy news outlets, driven to maintain the warped perceptions formed by these narratives, will latch onto any incident they can find. The more controversy they can stir up, the more chaotic of a picture they can create—regardless of facts—the more agitated the public becomes, and the less likely they’ll reflect on the information rationally.

We saw this recently when Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) downplayed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks saying that “some people did something.” Trump posted a video on Twitter that showed Omar making her comments alongside footage of the 9/11 attacks. The legacy media reacted by defending Omar and by criticizing Trump of “racism” and “hate.”

Regardless of facts, incidents like these are meant to serve a purpose. The narrative is meant to control public perception and lead it to partisan conclusions, and this can’t work without double standards and half truths.

With this type of reporting, the idea is to give the public an inaccurate picture of events for the sake of “perception management.”

Crisis and Response

Another focus of these tactics is to create a crisis on the ground and in the public consciousness that public leaders can respond to with legislation.

When Michael Wolff wrote his book “Fire and Fury” that attempted to frame the Trump administration as being chaotic, he admitted in his prologue that some sources lied to him, some sources contradicted others, and he used these to settle on “a version of events I believe to be true.”

As Law & Crime noted, Wolff was “accused of including fiction in what’s presented as a non-fiction book, and he admits that not all of his sources were trustworthy, but he doesn’t specify what’s fact true and what’s false.”

Even though it was a piece of fiction, framed as nonfiction, it was used by legacy news outlets and by politicians to frame a new talking point that Trump was “mentally unfit” for office. This led to headlines such as one from The Atlantic on Jan. 12, 2018, “The Psychiatrist Telling Congress Trump Could Be Involuntarily Committed: A Yale professor says she’s telling lawmakers that the president may actually be ‘dangerous.’”

Democrat leaders used this crisis to introduce the “Stable Genius Act” to make Trump take a psychological evaluation. This served the purpose of perpetuating the illusion of chaos and instability; yet quickly backfired when Trump did take a mental evaluation that concluded he was both mentally stable and intelligent—reinforcing his “stable genius” line.

Facing the ongoing flurry of false narratives and chaos operations, overall, Trump has shown an uncanny skill in taking these narratives and turning them to his advantage.

And at the end of the day, Trump has shown a strong ability both to endure and deflect these tactics, expose lies as they occur, not fold or retreat when attacked, point out the double standards, and not hesitate to laugh at the ridiculousness of the claims.

NXIVM Sex-Cult Prosecutors Have Alleged Evidence Of Illegal Clinton Campaign Contributions For “Political Influence”

Originally published @ ZEROHEDGE

US Attorney Richard Donoghue asked a federal judge last month for permission to present a mountain of new evidence in the NXIVM sex-cult trial – including evidence of an “illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign,” in the “hopes of obtaining political influence to advance their own agenda,” according to a March court filing.

“At the suggestion of a political operative, who has since pleaded guilty to an unrelated New York state bribery charge also involving campaign contributions, the contributions were “bundled” and presented to the candidate at a fundraising event attended by conspirators,” the filing continues.

And whose “presidential primary campaign” did the group allegedly attempt to buy influence with?

None other than Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to former NXIVM publicist-turned-whistleblower Frank Parlato, who told Big League Politics “I was there, and I knew that the contributions were made by more than a dozen NXIVM members to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

At present, the judge overseeing the case has not responded on the case docket.

Founded by accused pedophile Keith Raniere, NXIVM started out as a multi-level-marketing self-help business for people who wanted to “reach their potential” through various courses.

NXIVM’s Clinton connections have been known for some time 

After being run out of Arkansas in the early ’90s by then-Governor Bill Clinton’s attorney general on charges of fraud and business deception, Raniere and NXIVM executives emerged a decade later only to donate $29,900 to Hillary Clinton’s 2006 presidential campaign a decade later. At least three NXIVM officials are (or were) “invitation-only” members of the Clinton Global Initiative, according to the New York Post.

Meanwhile, NXIVM’s ‘inner sanctum’ turns out to have been sex-cult known as ‘DOS’ – which Parletto says stands for “dominus obsequious sororium,” or “master over the slave women.”

Raniere’s inner cadre included Seagrams heiresses Clare and Sara bronfman, who joined NXIVM in 2002 and subsequently contributed $150 million of their inheritance to the organization, while Claire bought 80% of Wakaya island off the coast of Fiji for $47 million in 2016, according to Vanity Fair.

Female members of DOS – such as former Smallville actress Allison Mack, would procure women for Raniere – who required that prospective “slaves” upload compromising collateral into a Dropbox account. One such recruit-turned-coach was India Oxenberg – daughter of Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenbergwho met with prosecutors in New York in late 2017 to present evidence against Raniere. 

Allison Mack​​​​

Raniere and Mack were arrested on federal charges which include sex trafficking, forced labor, wire fraud conspiracy, human trafficking and other counts. Most recently, Raniere was accused of having sex with children and producing kiddie porn, to which he has pleaded not guilty.

Mack – who allegedly held the second-most-senior position in NXIVM, pleaded guilty earlier this month to racketeering charges and manipulating women into becoming sex slaves.”I believed Keith Raniere’s intentions were to help people, and I was wrong,” a tearful Mack told a Brooklyn judge. “I know I can and will be a better person,” she added.

Prior to his death, Clare and Sara’s father, Seagrams founder and former president of the World Jewish Congress Edgar Bronfman (whose funeral Hillary Clinton spoke at), told Vanity Fair of NXIVM “I think it’s a cult.”

Wikileaks Document Exposes a “Secret US Base on the Moon”

Originally Published at Collective Evolution

  • The Facts: A document published by Wikileaks clearly implies that the United States had a “secret” base on the Moon that was destroyed by Russia. It’s one of many interesting documents that suggest strange things are and have been happening on the Moon.
  • Reflect On: Is our world really as it’s been presented? There are millions of pages of documents that are classified by multiple countries every single year, how is it possible to really determine what’s going on behind the scenes? Why does secrecy rule?

“The Assange arrest is scandalous in several respects, and one of them is the effort of governments, and it’s not just the US government… The efforts to silence a journalist who was producing materials that people in power didn’t want the rascal multitude to know about… That’s basically what happened. Wikileaks was producing things that people ought to know about those in power, people in power don’t like that. So therefore we have to silence it”
. – Noam Chomsky (source)

*Note from author: I recently published anarticle that goes into detail about what Julian Assange’s arrest tells us about our world.

The idea that something strange may be happening on the Moon is not far fetched at all. In fact, given all of the information that’s now available within the public domain on the subject, it’s hard to see how it’s not a fact. We’ll get to some of that information later in this article; but first, let’s draw our attention to a strange Wikileaks document titled, “Report That UR Destroyed Secret Moon Base.”

Unfortunately, the document is not an electronic document, therefore access to its full contents is not available online. For anybody truly interested in reading the entire thing, a Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) may be in order.

Without speculating here, we can conclude that this is what it says it is, a report regarding possible space wars that are taking place in the classified world. The document title alone not only exposes the reality of these alleged wars, but the possibility of a “Secret Moon Base” belonging to the United States that apparently was in operation until it was destroyed by “UR.” (Soviet Union)

You can view it in the Wikileaks archive here.


So, what other information exists, besides this document, showing that something strange is and has been happening on the Moon? There’s a lot of information, so it’s hard to know where to begin.

First of all, the idea of bases on the Moon have been an open discussion within the government for a long time, although the information isn’t easy to find, but it’s definitely out there. A document from the government’s own publishing office is a great example. It clearly shows one of the goals of the United States government is to build a base on the Moon, and this is as far back as 1966. (source)

A portion of the document reads, with reference to presidents Kennedy and Johnson in a statement by HON. George P. Miller:

I also believe that we can and will achieve the goal set by Presidents Kennedy and Johnson: a manned landing on the moon before 1970. My own confidence in our rapidly advancing science and technology is such that I can visualize many more dramatic achievements ahead, although I will fix no timetable for them. 1. The exploration of the lunar surface, and possibly the establishment of one or more permanent bases there.

Furthermore, decades old documents have been declassified discussing this topic, showing just how serious and far possible advancements with these intentions have gone.

Take a look at the screen shot below, taken from the CIA electronic reading room in the form of a memorandum that was addressed to the CIA director regarding “Military Thought (Top Secret)” by Lieutenant General Korenevskiy.


The document above really goes into detail regarding the importance of weaponizing space. This brings to mind another document from Wikileaks, in the form of an email that was sent to politician John Podesta from Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, and Dr. Carol Rosin. It reads as follows:

Dear John, Because the War in Space race is heating up, I felt you should be aware of several factors as you and I schedule our Skype talk. Remember, our nonviolent ETI from the contiguous universe are helping us bring zero point energy to Earth. They will not tolerate any forms of military violence on Earth or in space. The following information in italics was shared with me by my colleague Carol Rosin, who worked closely for several years with Wernher von Braun before his death. Carol and I have worked on the Treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space, attached for your convenience.

A declassified report by the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center from June 1959 shows just how seriously they considered a plan called Project A119. In general, they wanted to investigate the capability of weapons in space as well as gain further insight into the space environment and the detonation of nuclear devices within it.

Interesting to say the least, but it’s important to recognize the intentions behind the letter, and that is the recognition that humans have brought and will continue to bring their destructive ways into space by weaponizing it or attempting to weaponize it.

With all of this documentation, it’s also interesting to look into witness testimonies from credible sources.

In the 1950s, Colonel Ross Dedrickson was responsible for maintaining the inventory of the nuclear weapon stockpile for the AEC, and for accompanying security teams testing the security of the weapons, among many other duties. When it comes to weaponizing space, which is clearly outlined within multiple documents linked above, this is what he had to say:

“I also learned about incidents involving nuclear weapons, and among these incidents were a couple of nuclear weapons sent into space that were destroyed by the extraterrestrials… At the very end of the 70s and the early 80s, we attempted to put a nuclear weapon on the Moon and explode it for scientific measurements and other things, which was not acceptable to the extraterrestrials. They destroyed the weapon before it got to the Moon.” (source)

Dedrickson is one of hundreds of whistleblowers with verified, credible and impressive backgrounds to speak up about an extraterrestrial presence. In that same interview, he went on to state that:

A spacecraft went to the rescue of Apollo 13, and they accompanied Apollo 13 on their voyage around the Moon back to Earth. And on two occasions they thought they might have to transfer the crew to their spacecraft, but they saw them safely back to Earth.

This may explain why several astronauts have also been quite outspoken about an extraterrestrial presence, like Edgar Mitchell, Brian O’Leary, Story Musgrave, Gordon Cooper and many others.

Another document from 1965 regarding the CIA keeping tabs on Soviet space plans reads as follows:

Keep in mind, this was more than 50 years ago.

Below is an interesting quote from Carl Sagan:

It is not out of the question that artifacts of these visits still exist, or even that some kind of base is maintained (possibly automatically) within the solar system to provide continuity for successive expeditions. Because of weathering and the possibility of detection and interference by the inhabitants of the Earth, it would be preferable not to erect such a base on the Earth’s surface. The Moon seems one reasonable alternative. Forthcoming high resolution photographic reconnaissance of the Moon from space vehicles – particularly of the back side – might bear these possibilities in mind. (source)

George Leonard’s 1976 book, Somebody Else is on the Moon, and Fred Steckling’s 1981 book, We Discovered Alien Bases on The Moon, also come to mind when discussing this subject.

Members of the Society For Planetary SETI Research (SPSR) recently published a paper in the Journal of Space Exploration about certain features on the far side of the Moon that appear in the crater Paracelsus C. Titled “Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C,” it argues that these features might be artificial in origin.

The study makes a great point when it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis:

A decidedly conservative mainstream scientific establishment often rejects anomalies based on subject matter alone, i.e., there cannot be alien artifacts on the moon because there are no alien artifacts on the moon (or other planets). Such a view is an example of circular reasoning, based on the belief that extraterrestrials do not exist, or if they do exist that they could not have traveled to our solar system.

The truth is, “there is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” – Dr. Brian O’Leary, former NASA astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor (source)

When it comes to the Moon, man-made bases may not be the only ones there.

As far as our own bases are concerned, Karl Wolfe, who was a precision electronics photograph technician at Langley Air Force Base, became well-known when he provided his testimony at National Press Club in Washington, D.C. as part of Dr. Steven Greer’s disclosure project.(source)

Wolfe’s testimony revealed that he was taken into a dark room where images from NASA’s Lunar Orbiter were being developed and stitched together into composite images called “mosaics.”

“They were doing 35 mm strips of film at the time which were then assembled into 18 ½ x 11 mosaics. Those strips were from successive passes around the Moon and they would build up a photograph ,” Wolfe said.(source)

“We walked over to one side of the lab and he said, ‘By the way, we’ve discovered a base on the backside of the moon.’”

Dr. John Brandenburg, the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) and NASA, has also made some fascinating revelations. The mission discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994 (Source: page 16 of 18)(source)(source). But, according to Dr. Brandenburg, the Clementine Mission had an ulterior agenda:

“The Clementine Mission was a photo reconnaissance mission basically to check out if someone was building bases on the Moon that we didn’t know about. Were they expanding them?… Of all the pictures I’ve seen from the Moon that show possible structures, the most impressive is a picture of a miles-wide recto-linear structure. This looked unmistakably artificial, and it shouldn’t be there. As somebody in the space defence community, I look on any such structure on the Moon with great concern because it isn’t ours, there’s no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there.” (Quote from the documentary, “Aliens on the Moon.”)

There are other strange facts about our Moon that’ve been pointed out by some very credible sources. I go into more detail regarding the actual structure of the Moon and what it is as well as the evidence suggesting it could be artificially made in the article linked below:

Multiple Scientists Publish Papers Suggesting The Moon Is Hollow & Artificially Made

Welcome To The World of Secrecy

A Michigan State University economist teamed up with multiple researchers, including Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development. They found trillions of unaccounted for dollars missing from housing & D.O.D and going towards black budget programs. You can read more about that here.

We are talking about Special Access Programs (SAP). We have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” (source)

I am mentioning this stuff because, whatever is happening with regards to the Moon, you can bet that it’s being funded by trillions of dollars from within these deep black budget programs. These are our tax dollars hard at work.

We don’t really hear about black budget programs, or about people who have actually looked into them.  However, the topic was discussed in 2010 by Washington Post journalists Dana Priest and William Arkin. Their investigation lasted approximately two years and concluded that America’s classified world has:

Become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. (source)

CE founder Joe Martino recently went deep into this subject on an episode of CETV, it will be airing soon!

The Takeaway

Our world is not how it’s been presented. Many subjects once and that still are deemed as a “conspiracy” are clearly not a conspiracy. Strange things happening on the moon and UFOs, for example, are one of several great examples.

It’s OK to explore these things, but it’s vital that we examine good sources and present good sources when we do so.

Too Classified to Publish — Russia Opens Files on Nuclear 9/11 and Israeli Proliferation

Originally published in 2014 in Veterans Today
Written by Gordon Duff

The material below is a compendium of intelligence received, now known to be “laundered” through Russian Naval Intelligence on what we were told was on behalf of Snowden. Since that time, in the ensuing four plus years, we have found that a dissident FBI agent who filed suit against Director Robert Mueller for planning his assassination is likely responsible.

The narrative below includes photographs and drawings that were part of that drop, confirmed to have come from the US Department of Energy.

Some of the information may well be familiar to those who have followed the investigation. Some of the information has been superseded by corrected or more recent material. More important, much of this material was removed from publication and totally suppressed… Gordon ]

Too Classified to Publish: Bush Nuclear Piracy Exposed

Russia Opens Files on Nuclear 9/11 and Israeli Proliferation

(Veterans Today — Gordon Duff) The report below is taken from an intelligence dump by Russian sources. As the origin is from an intelligence agency in the form of a “leak,” there are always questions. Thus far, we have found that not only is the majority of the material confirmed, but several solutions to serious problems involving 9/11 are included.

I have redacted little here. However, this arrived with vast supporting documentation which can, in the future, be uploaded on SCRIBD for access. One key area is that the US had supplied Israel with surplus nuclear weapons.

We have a very solid confirmation on this. Back during the 1980s, Israel showed her inventory of Davy Crockett tactical nuclear warheads to one of our editors, who at the time was a senior NATO intelligence official. These early “micro-nukes” were taken out of the US inventory in 1978 and “disappeared.”

This highly classified report is being published unaltered, except for bad machine translation errors being repaired. My personal opinion is that this is NOT a disinformation piece, but rather represents a significant breakthrough. I believe that this is a rare glimpse behind the curtain.

I am publishing this for the use of those qualified to understand how little of this is really new. Those things that are new are groundbreaking. For those who find this all a bit over their heads, there is little I can do other than to let you know that this is the world “your elders” really live in, and that you finally have a chance to look in mom and dad’s top dresser drawer.

Too Classified to Publish

According to a retired FXX agent specializing in Israeli counter-intel: The type of nuclear devices used on 911 were a modified version of the W-54 nuclear artillery shells that were covertly provided to the Israelis between 1988 and 1998 from US surplus stockpiles illegally exported during the Bush/Clinton era.

Chemical analysis done by DOE Sandia was able to identify the chemical/radiation footprint or fingerprint of the warheads based on samples taken after 911 of the fallout at ground zero. (Editor’s note: Nuclear weapon use at ground zero is confirmed from multiple sources)

All plutonium-based warheads have a chemical fingerprint that can identify the type of design and where the PU was made and how old it is. This was the 911 blackmail on Bush 1 and 2, the illegal transfer of surplus US nuclear weapons to the Israelis, and why the continued cover up, along with the stolen gold and stock fraud that was happening on Wall Street, etc. According to file ENW57.pdf on page 66. (Editor’s note: Document received and confirmed)

Only a 2-kiloton device was needed to drop the buildings. A 2-kiloton device will produce a fireball of approx 150 to 200 feet in diameter at over 4000 degrees Centigrade – just large enough to melt the I beams of the central core of the building and drop them in place. The light flash would last less than 1 second and primarily be in the UV light range. Overpressure would only be at 60PSI max and directed upwards with the blast. See underground effect.

Fallout would be minimal and located to within ground zero range only. Radiation would drop to acceptable levels within 72 hours after the blast. Most fallout was trapped in the cement dust, thus causing all of the recent cancer deaths that we are now seeing in NYC amongst first responders. (Editor’s note: Consistent with site data)

Melted steel and iron oxide or “nano thermite” is a byproduct of the very high gamma ray / neutron flux induced into the central steel core. The radiation dissolves the steel into iron oxide, consuming the carbon and silicone in the steel. This explains the missing steel columns and the very important clue of the “vaporized’ 20-ton antenna tower atop the South tower. The upward blast of radiation literally vaporized it. Video evidence proves this to be true. (Editor’s note: Tower issue a vital one.)

9-11 Firefighters Revea Bombs Destroyed WTC lobby from The Impious Digest on Vimeo.

The total XXOO data file from DOE Sandia on the 911 event is well over 72 MB. P.S. Snowden didn’t have a Q clearance so he missed this one. Carnaby had a pretty good stash of documents on the subject. (All under the transit stuff.) The entire nuclear nonproliferation story of stolen nuclear material coming from Russia was an Israeli cover story to hide the original source of weapons material coming from the US stockpile. (Editor’s note: Fully confirmed)

Illegal distribution of US nuclear material to foreign allies was not limited to Israel. Virtually all NATO allies were in on this scam too. Dick Cheney was the bad guy on this one. Bush2/Cheney traded nuclear pits to foreign countries as IOU’s in order to get what they wanted. Tom Countryman, a well-known Israeli operative, is curiously now in charge of N.N.P. at the State Department under Obama.(?) He was put there by Rahm Emanuel.

It appears that the weapon of choice for the Israelis was the W-54 and follow on series of nuclear pits taken from the Amarillo, Texas, storage dump. This was what Carnaby was working on for Bush senior in Houston. A total of over 350 pits were transferred to the Israelis over a 10 to 20 year period of time. The W-54 type of pit design was the most desirable, due to the 2-point implosion pit design. This is the easiest to re manufacture and modify as compared to other circular pit designs.

The pill-shaped design of the W-54 type weapon contains over 1.5 times more plutonium than a standard pit. This would allow enough Plutonium to be recovered that was still of weapons grade use, even after 32 plus years of age. Americium build-up in the pit over time eventually makes the pit unusable as a weapon, so they have a limited shelf life based on how fast or slow the Plutonium was produced in the reactor at Stanford. Usually it was about 150 days max. Irradiation time in the reactor during production determines the shelf-life of the pit as weapons grade material. All of the micro nukes used by the Israelis are re-manufactured W-54 type series devices.

These devices were used in the Bali bombing and the London bombing and in Japan on their reactors. (Editor’s note: Nuclear weapon use in Bali confirmed) Also used in Damascus, Iraq and Afghanistan by the US. (Editor’s note: Multiple confirmation including site samples.)

These are stored in most Israeli embassies for ease of deployment. The ones used on 9-11 were kept at the Israeli consulate in NYC until put in place. After 9-11, the FBI now checks all diplomatic pouches with a Geiger counter before entering or leaving the US. The South African weapons were also surplus W-54 artillery shells acquired from Israeli; and final assembly and testing was done in South Africa with Israel assistance.
(Editor’s note: This explains Pelandaba production issues.)

This was done because the Israelis needed a testing ground in order to make sure that their rebuilt weapons would work as designed. (Editor’s note: Testing on Sept. 22, 1979 multiple confirmations.)

The North Korean weapons are also of the 155 mm artillery design as provided by Israel. The true North Korean nuclear weapons program is based on nuclear artillery use and not missiles. The plan is to use a massive artillery barrage on South Korea if war breaks out; this includes the use of small nuclear artillery shells to counter US tanks’ rockets and artillery.

The Saudis also have a stash of W-54s acquired from the US under Bush2. (Editor’s note: Confirmed) The Israelis have also provided them to India, Brazil, China, Taiwan, Japan, North and South Korea, etc. (Editor’s note: All but South Korea confirmed. Canada had been believed to be the source of Brazilian nuclear weapons.)

Dimona is a standard 75 megawatt thermal open top reactor as used in France for their plutonium weapons production program, their version of Stanford.

Due to over use as a fast breeder reactor by the Israelis, Dimona suffered a “steam explosion”, IE a flash over indecent due to neutron criticality back in the late 1980s under Bush 1. This shut down its operation for many years until repairs could be made. It now only operates at very low power levels due to neutron absorption damage to the containment vessel. Now mainly used for isotope production. This forced the Israelis to turn to stolen nuclear stockpiles from the US for the continuation of their nuclear program.

The Israelis knew that the nuclear material they acquired only had a limited shelf life left before it was no longer usable as weapons grade, then tried to dump it on the surplus market as fast as possible before it was of no use to them. So they dumped it on unsuspecting nations who would only sit on it and not be able to test it. These were the fissile tests in North Korea. (Editor’s note: Confirmed, multiple sources)

When everybody caught on to the scam such as Japan and Korea, (IE the Korean sub sinkings etc) they were angry because they paid big bucks for junk. This started a mini cold war with Israel and her off clients. However, with micro nukes, even as the plutonium ages, it will still fissile, producing a smaller size detonation well under 2-kiloton in size. So they can still be used as small dirty bombs or as very small tactical nukes, such as the nuclear artillery strikes on Damascus with rocket assisted W-54s. (Editor’s note: Confirmed strike, May 4, 2013) On the W-54 pit design, it is pill-shaped, and it is only about 4 inches in diameter and weighs about 24 pounds.

Most of the fuel is consumed in the plasma fireball when detonated, so there is very little plutonium fallout left to escape. If it is salted with other materials, the fallout can be even reduced to lower levels, such as in an enhanced radiation device or the so called neutron bomb. This is what was used on 9-11. The primary purpose of the nuclear weapon used on 9-11 was to produce a massive gamma ray / neutron flux that would vaporize about 150 to 300 feet of 6-inch thick steel I beams that constituted the central core of the WTC buildings. This created a free fall event as seen on TV that day. (Editor’s note: Critical information here.)

The flash would be hidden from sight due to the underground detonation. Most of the light was in the non-visible light spectrum, anyway. Over pressure would be reduced to 6 psi due to the blast traveling up the central core and neutron radiation vaporizing the TV antenna at the top of the building as see on TV. The fallout would be mainly vaporized concrete cement and iron oxide. This is why, after 9-11, they told everyone on TV that the beta radiation burns that people were getting were due to the caustic cement dust and not due to the radiation effects from the radioactive cement fallout. (Editor’s note: Fully confirmed)

The iron oxide found all over the place was what was left of the steel I beams. This was the so called Nano Thermite that was found everywhere. Fallout was limited to a 1-mile area around downtown NYC. See charts. (Editor’s note: Received)

Radiation decay was reduced to safe low levels after 72 hours, (Editor’s note: Fully confirmed) outside of ground zero itself. This is why the area was blocked off from the public for 3 days after the event, in order to let the radiation drop to safe levels.

VT: CIA Torture Report Ties Cheney/Bout to 9/11 Nukes

Information received this week from the highest levels of US counter-terrorism sources have confirmed that the reputed “Queen of Al Qaeda,” Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, a CIA torture victim now serving 87 years in an American “super-max” prison, was a CIA agent when captured and was imprisoned to prevent releasing information that could eventually lead to the arrest and conviction of then Vice President Dick Cheney.

The Cheney/Bout partnership was integral to the wholesale looting of America’s inventory of surplus and decommissioned nuclear weapons and placing dozens of nuclear warheads in the hands of rogue nations and terrorist groups.

Cheney and his henchmen were silencing critics, eliminating “loose ends” tied to Able Danger and 9/11 and completing the process of dismantling the last vestiges of representative government in the US and Western Europe. The story today ties the Valerie Plame scandal, a CIA agent exposed as retaliation at Cheney’s orders.

Our coup was when we learned that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, termed a veritable “female bin Laden” was not only CIA but an asset for Valerie Plame in an investigation originally aimed at Saddam but that had turned around and was pointing directly at the White House.

The Plame investigation, aided by Siddiqui’s proof no “yellowcake/Al Qaeda” plot had ever existed, went much further than initially intended. Cheney was revealed to be the “handler” for now imprisoned Victor Bout, revealed by the FBI in a 2007 Bangkok briefing to be greatly responsible for supplying the nuclear weapons nukes used on the WTC and, according to FBI sources, a cruise missile as well that the FBI asserts was used on the Pentagon on 9/11.

In December 2008, voting machine hacker Michael Connell died in a plane crash within days of asking for protection, claiming Karl Rove had threatened him if he came forward regarding charges of rigging both the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.

Thus, when Libby/Liebowitz was convicted, it was openly accepted that he was protecting Cheney from the fallout of simply “running his mouth.” In truth, as we will establish, even Cheney’s proven role in pushing America into an illegal war is only the tip of the iceberg.
The Cheney/Bout partnership was integral to the wholesale looting of America’s inventory of surplus and decommissioned nuclear weapons and placing dozens of nuclear warheads in the hands of rogue nations and terrorist groups.

Bout and his fleet of transport planes carried the arms for “Charlie Wilson’s War” in Afghanistan, hauled first opium and later heroin by the ton for American school children, and was the “go to” supplier for all covert weapons for both “freedom fighters” and terrorist groups as well, at least those working for the CIA, Mossad along with British and French intelligence.

PLAME

Siddiqui worked directly for Valerie Plame, a CIA agent purposefully “outed” when her husband, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, disproved White House claims of “yellowcake uranium” smuggling by Iraq. White House Security Chief, Scooter “Libby” Leibowitz was convicted of the Plame leak, although sources now confirm that the “outing” of Plame was done at the orders of Cheney and was passed on to the media by retired General Paul Vallely, a Fox News employee who has recently been filmed meeting with leaders of the ISIS/Al Qaeda terror group in Turkey and reputedly Syria as well.

When Plame was “burned,” her assistant, Dr. Aafia, was then listed as part of the now debunked yellowcake “network” and fled to Pakistan, where she was kidnapped and taken to Bagram Air Force Base, as outlined in CIA torture records. Sources close to Plame tell us that the film, “Fair Game,” a highly fictionalized account of her story starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn, but never promoted and barely released, was produced in order to “settle accounts.” The producers of the film are Israeli nationals; and sources confirm the film project was undertaken at the request of Israeli intelligence sources as a way of laundering “hush money.”

UK TELEGRAPH GETS IT VERY WRONG

This week, the UK Telegraph, using sources from the Daily Mail, published a lengthy article describing “convicted terrorist” Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s process of radicalization and, quite frankly, defending her rendition kidnapping, her 5 years of rape and torture, and the murder of her children by CIA-paid contractors. If only this were the whole story, a cover up of torture as part of a war on terror. It is not. The Telegraph has a long reputation of being a cover story “drop box” for MI-6, so the story was passed around quickly among those who take a special interest in such things.

This week a source within the Able Danger investigation, working directly with the Department of Defense and IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and part of the original team that brought down rogue FBI agent Robert Hansen as well, tells of a different story regarding Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. Aafia was a CIA agent targeted by the Bush administration because her operational unit, headed by Valerie Plame, one involved in NNP (nuclear non-proliferation) was ready to order the arrest of Vice President Dick Cheney and top officials of the US Department of Energy, the organization that, with the Department of Defense, maintains America’s nuclear weapons inventories.

Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger of the Reagan era was arrested at his home one morning by a similar operational unit for crimes committed in the Iran-Contra Affair and was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice. Public and secret pardons by Bush (41) cover not only Weinberger but up to 138 Reagan officials.

After the 2000 US presidential election, where George Bush (43) was “appointed” compliments of a Supreme Court ruling that stopped the Florida vote count, loyal elements in defense and security became convinced the election began a coup. In December 2008, voting machine hacker Michael Connell died in a plane crash within days of asking for protection, claiming Karl Rove had threatened him if he came forward regarding charges of rigging both the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.

For those in Defense and Intelligence, the “convenience” of 9/11, however, represented something more than a power grab. Nuclear investigators were immediately dispatched, gathering samples and radiation readings, including one VT editor, a nuclear physicist and IAEA investigator, who is photographed at “ground zero” dressed as a utility worker. This team is responsible for the DOE 9/11 Report received by White House, Pentagon and Congressional leaders in 2003.

When the report was never made public, the team released the highly classified photographs depicting the huge nuclear crater with swirls of melted granite. Later, after the (alleged/now disproven..really from a dissident FBI agent) Snowden leak and Veterans Today publishing of key report components, the investigative team came forward, not only confirming their findings of nuclear weapons use on 9/11 but continued their work using highly classified documents published by Russian nuclear investigator Dimitri Khalezov.

When Israeli teams, then living in safe houses in New Jersey and under surveillance by FBI agent Mike Dick’s teams, moved the nuclear weapons into the World Trade Center parking lots in white moving vans as told of in the DOE report, it was not known that the parking places chosen had a strategic purpose.

The DOE teams were, at that time, unaware that the huge freon tanks, technology no longer in use, that cooled the towers, were located under the parking places chosen for the devices, described in the report as “two stage nuclear thermobaric weapons.” In subsequent revisions, after the nuclear design teams at Los Alamos National Laboratories read the Khalezov report, the energy weapon effect noted by many including Dr. Judy Wood could finally be explained.

In a report edited by members of the original Department of Energy 9/11 investigative team, the 26,000 gallon freon tanks provided a massive deuterium boost that traveled up the elevator shafts, destroying the structural integrity of the Twin Towers. From Veterans Today August 28, 2014:

The third really big one was placed over the air conditioning Freon storage tanks in the utility room, or just under it in the utility pipe gallery, as stated by Dmitry. This one made the giant crater formations left under the buildings foundations and was the cause of the
melted steel and thermal effects seen on 9-11.

When the 1.5kt nuke went off next to the storage tanks containing 26 tons of liquid Freon, it turned it into Hydrogen Floride (H2F), or in the nuclear weapons industry, it is called Deuterium Fluoride (DF), the stuff that hydrogen bombs are made of. This produced the desired thermal effects needed to vaporize the central core and over half of the Twin Towers in less than 10 seconds. No other explosive device could do that. Dmitry was off only on the size of the weapons used, but all other data checks out correctly. He was too correct, so his source was an inside player. This is why D.O.J wants him!!

If his story were untrue, then they would not go to this much trouble to keep him locked up in a Thailand jail waiting extradition to the USA. That fact alone tells you something BIG!!

Blast Effects. When the 1.5KT nuke went off under buildings 1 and 2, it sucked most of the 26 tons of liquid Freon from the cooling system into the fireball. Due to thermal heat of 4 million degrees in the center of the fireball and neutron absorption, the Freon was split and then fused into Deuterium Fluoride…

As in the IVY Mike nuclear Pacific test in 1952 of the first Hydrogen Bomb — producing the massive over yield due to the extra Freon being converted into extra Deuterium. On 9-11, this acted as extra external “Deuterium Boost Gas”, boosting the Thermal Yield of the 1.5 KT weapon at least 10 to a maximum of 100 times. 15 to 150 KT thermal output
not in blast energy.

That would put the overall “thermal energy” released between 15KT and up to 150KT at 100% efficiency. Most likely closer to 10% efficiency would be more practical. This is a crude Teller “Lair Cake or Alarm Clock” boosted nuclear fission design only used back in the 1950s test shots. Dmitry’s claims of 150 KT thermal was a bit too big. However, if the weapon had been twice this size — 3KT vs 1.5 KT — it would have taken out the lower half of Manhattan, including the entire Wall Street financial district, and the fallout would have taken out half of NYC, and not by accident!!!!

It was designed that way. Over 90% of this energy is released as fast neutrons and Infrared energy, with accompanying Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation. Less than 10% was in mechanical blast energy or over pressure. Most of this was absorbed in the ground as shock waves and created the massive cavities left below the buildings. The off-centered large cavity was located just below the Freon cooling plant storage tank location, which is a big forensic clue as to the energy source used on that day.

The mostly unburnt and highly-ionized Deuterium Fluoride gas (Formally known as Freon-12) produced by the blast, (over 20 tons of it) was trapped in the building debris piles and accounted for all of the post 9-11 thermal effects of molten steel, hot spots, and out-gassing of very caustic gasses, ETC. This stuff, due to neutron excitation and very high
ionization levels, will stay very hot until the appropriate neutron-absorbing chemicals are added to the ground in order to stop the ongoing low level neutron chain reactions from occurring, similar to what is happening in Japan with their nuclear 3-11 disaster.

BACKGROUND

After 9/11, the US set out to create what appeared to be a worldwide terror organization, in order to justify both a political crackdown within the US and, as had been made public on many occasions by former NATO head General Wesley Clark… the long planned military takeover of the Middle East and Central Asia.

Part of this plot involved creating a cover story involving 500 tons of “yellowcake uranium”, supposedly bought by Al Qaeda and transported to Iraq to supply a nuclear program later found to never have existed. The Bush White House, at the orders of Vice President Dick Cheney, went to a terrorist group within the Italian intelligence agency, SISMI, part of the group responsible for the Gladio terror bombings and the kidnapping and murder of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro.

They created documents outlining imaginary transactions and sent them to CIA headquarters in Rome. SISMI chief Nicolo Pollari took the reports directly to the White House, where Cheney asked friends within the CIA and Department of Energy — part of a covert working team that included arms smuggler Victor Bout — to prepare reports citing the severity of the threat posed by these known forged reports.

DEEP BACKGROUND

A US Army intelligence group working within Israel, headed by Colonel James Hanke, had discovered that the nuclear weapons facility at Dimona had suffered a catastrophic accident between 1988 and 1990. Israel’s nuclear weapons inventory could no longer be maintained, and expanded from domestically produced weapons grade nuclear material. Israel’s complicity was proven when, according to sources within the IAEA and Able Danger team, a combined operation between the US Department of Defense and Department of Justice, initially headed by FBI Agent John O’Neill, had discovered discrepancies in the US nuclear weapons inventory.

It was not just 350 missing nuclear pits, but fully one third of America’s post SALT II (Strategic Arms Limitations Talks) inventory. The records of our nuclear weapons inventory had been systematically sabotaged to hide this attack on America’s weapons inventory, or so they thought.

Able Danger established the presence of an espionage organization in the United States that was answerable personally to Benjamin Netanyahu. The organization included the then head of the Dept. of Energy, the AIPAC Lobby, the Anti-Defamation League, key commanders of America’s nuclear forces, the Joint Special Operations command under VP Dick Cheney, and members of the International Atomic Energy Agency, a UN organization.

Their investigation had tied corrupt officials at the highest levels of the US Department of Energy to the leak of classified nuclear “pit” configuration data and altering records of decommissioned nuclear weapons. Three hundred fifty W54 nuclear warheads were missing from inventories at the Pantex nuclear facility in Amarillo, Texas.

An investigation team led by Roland Carnaby, the CIA agent killed in a mysterious shooting in 2008, discovered that the missing “pits” had been stolen and taken to a nearby meat packing facility, where they were sorted using leaked DOE data in order to allow them to be safely melted down and reconfigured to replace the depleted Israeli stockpile. Investigators from the DOE and IAEA confirm that weapons from this stolen stockpile were used in the demolition of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 — nuclear “pits” originally produced at the Hanford DOE facility in Washington.

This information was part of the highly classified 2003 9/11 report given to congressional and White House leaders only, and later leaked by Russian Naval Intelligence, believed to have been among a trove of documents received from Edward Snowden. (later found to be a cover story to protect a real whistleblower)

In March 2013, a group of business executives meeting in Tulsa, Oklahoma, received a briefing on the 2003 “Nuclear 9/11” report as part of a “Threat Assessment Conference”, where Veterans Today staff were among the presenters. The briefing also included a version of the now famous “Shrimpton nuclear scare” story, confirming the recovery of a
missing nuclear weapon somewhere in the EU in 2012. This was the biggest collection of private jets ever to grace Oklahoma.

9/11 AND AFTERMATH

Leaked documents on the Able Danger investigation, received in September 2014, revealed that most investigation functions had ended in 1998 at the request of President Clinton, then under impeachment threat tied to his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, in a reputed Mossad “honey trap.” It was Clinton’s gutting of Able Danger that may well have made 9/11 possible, leaving in place Israeli and Saudi teams, the Cheney/Bout organization and the
AIPAC intel coordinators.

Investigative chief and FBI Special Agent John O’Neill left government service and pursued leads until his untimely death during the 9/11 “event”. According to a 2005 report, thirty-five of the Able Danger investigators were also killed on 9/11 when the Pentagon office they were called to for an emergency briefing by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Myer, (who did not show up for the meeting and did not die, a lucky day for him) was demolished by an airliner, though little or no physical evidence of such a happenstance exists. (Myer took over the JCOS before 9/11, but was confirmed afterward. Prior to 9/11, it was Myer that facilitated the destruction of nuclear weapon records while heading the Pentagon’s nuclear accounting group.)

After 1998, the FBI investigation team was divided into two units under the supervision of Special Agent Mike Dick; one team was tracking arms dealer Victor Bout, and was coordinated with IAEA investigators. The second unit investigated the theft of the “pit matching” documents and centered on the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC, eventually leading to the arrest of leaders of that group. Charges were later dropped when the White House refused to turn over required evidence; and Attorney General John Ashcroft, one of the key planners of the CIA torture program, ordered an end to the investigation. Witness statements included testimony indicating White House officials had passed key nuclear secrets to Israeli embassy representatives at a Washington cocktail party in the presence of both Paul Wolfowitz and Condoleezza Rice.

The second unit, assisted by CIA agent Roland Carnaby, followed the theft of nuclear weapons from the sorting facility near Amarillo to a fertilizer plant outside Waco, Texas. In April 2014, as Snowden reputedly handed Able Danger documents to Russian intelligence, the plant where the nuclear weapons were stored, the West Fertilizer Plant, was destroyed in a mysterious explosion.

The entire operation was run by Victor Bout, working directly for the office of the Vice President of the United States, according to private sources with access to the Plame/Siddiqui investigation. The nuclear pits had been moved by truck to the Port of Houston, where they had been placed on ships and transferred to the Canary Islands and later to Mauritania. The weapons were, according to Able Danger documents, stored at a mine controlled by former South African Prime Minister De Klerk inside a region controlled by the rebel Polisario Front. From there, weapons were sold to Taiwan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and other nations, along with restocking Israel.

Other weapons were set aside for use by intelligence agencies. IAEA sources report weapons from Hanford/Pantex were used for the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, at the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia in 1996, the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, and the Bali bombing in 2005. The IAEA confirms up to 50 nuclear weapons have been used surreptitiously since 1945, often in configurations that minimize blast and radiation.

THE CIA’S FORGOTTEN CHILDREN

There are strange parallels in the story of two accused “Al Qaeda” operatives. While the general public thinks of Al Qaeda as a terror group, in truth, according to Able Danger documents, Al Qaeda is a joint operational sector of Saudi, Israeli and US intelligence. This dirty little secret has compromised American security greatly, due to the blackmailing position both of these countries have had over the US.

Two of the major “terror figures” of Al Qaeda, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and Osama bin Laden, have been confirmed, at the highest levels, to be CIA operatives. After 9/11 both fled… Dr. Aafia to Karachi and bin Laden, who had recently received kidney treatments at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, where members of congress and top VIPs receive their care, to Tora Bora. Bin Laden died of complications from advanced kidney disease on December 13, 2001, after denying any involvement in 9/11 and advising those concerned to “look closer to home” (CIA FOIA Press Release dated 24 September, 2001.) Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto claims Osama Bin Laden was murdered by Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh long before 2007, one of the men convicted of killing U.S. journalist Daniel Pearl. Her own assassination soon followed.

The curious story of Bin Laden and his second “death” in Pakistan is similar to that of Aafia Siddiqui with her reputed murderous attack on he CIA captors during a waterboarding session at Bagram Air Force Base. Prior to the release of the recent and highly controversial CIA torture report, the reputed actual “re-killer” of bin Laden came forward. The story, as we are told, has an aging bin Laden in the upper floor of a home in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
Bin Laden is said to have leapt to his feet, grasping an AK47 in one hand while holding a hostage in another. While standing on a bed, bin Laden is brought down in a hail of gunfire, like something out of a cowboy film.

The Aafia story is if anything worse.

We are told Dr. Aafia, confined to a wheelchair, in this case “literally” held down by handcuff “tie raps”, was brought in for a waterboarding session. The US Air Force facility had been hosting summary execution and torture sessions for Aafia and other prisoners for years. Aafia had been raped repeatedly. She was down to 80 pounds and unable to walk.

There the story, an analog of the bin Laden tale, gets more bizarre. Dr. Aafia is said to have broken her tie wraps, listed as “ISO 527-1:2012 standard,” in a fit of rage. There were five men in the room, most over 200 pounds, four of whom were “special operations trained”, including one US Navy Seal, one CIA agent and two FBI agents. The fifth member was a “translator,” please pay attention as this will be an important point. The crippled 80-pound torture and rape victim is reputed to have knocked all four men to the ground, seizing an M4 carbine from one of them. According to transcripts, in order to save the lives of the four “terror war-fighters”, the “translator”, using his weapon shot Dr. Aafia in the abdomen.

This is the crime Dr. Aafia was convicted of, not terrorism but resisting torture. Now here comes the most curious part of all. Dr. Aafia lived in the United States for 11 years, the wife of a Boston anesthesiologist. Aafia taught at MIT, where she received her doctorate in microbiology before joining the CIA. Aafia had spoken English all her life, published in English and taught in English at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Why did she need a translator? You just can’t make this stuff up…

Wikileaks Founder Assange Arrested in London on US Extradition Request

Originally published at The Epoch Times
By PETR SVAB, April 11th, 2019

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested by British police and carried out of the Ecuadorian Embassy on April 11 after his host country revoked his asylum, paving the way for his extradition to the United States.

The United States alleged Assange engaged in a 2010 conspiracy with former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning (now Chelsea Manning), who served seven years in military prison for leaking classified data, and charged him with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion, with a maximum penalty of five years.

Assange was caught on camera as he was carried head first out of the embassy shortly after 10 a.m. by seven men to a waiting police van.

“UK must resist. UK resist. Resist these attempts by the Trump administration. UK must resist,” he’s heard shouting in the video posted on social media.

Compared to pictures from two years ago, Assange looked noticeably aged on April 11, now with a full white beard. He flashed a wink and a thumbs-up, as well as the victory sign, through the van’s window.

He spent seven years in the few rooms provided to him at the embassy.

“The whole House will welcome the news this morning that the Metropolitan Police have arrested Julian Assange, arrested for breach of bail after nearly seven years in the Ecuadorean Embassy,” Prime Minister Theresa May told Parliament to cheers and cries of “Hear, hear!” from lawmakers.

Police said they arrested Assange, 47, after being invited into the embassy following the Ecuadorian government’s withdrawal of asylum. Once brought to the police station, he was rearrested on an extradition request from the United States. He later appeared in the Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

Conspiracy Charges

The UK warrant stemmed from Assange’s skipping bail in a case in which a Swedish woman accused him of sexual assault. Swedish authorities dropped the charge in 2017, but the breach of bail warrant in the UK remained.

In the United States, Assange was indicted in March 2018 for conspiring with Manning to breach the Army’s computer system in 2010. Manning provided Assange with nearly 750,000 classified or sensitive military and diplomatic documents, which Assange then published on Wikileaks, the online disclosure platform he founded in 2006.

The indictment, released April 11, alleges that Assange encouraged Manning to steal more documents, saying that “curious eyes never run dry.” He also allegedly agreed to help Manning crack a password that would have allowed Manning to access the Army computer system under a different username, which “would have made it more difficult for investigators to identify Manning as the source of disclosures of classified information.” The indictment doesn’t disclose if Assange was successful in cracking the password.

Manning was arrested in March and remains in custody for refusing to testify to a grand jury investigating Wikileaks.

‘Hostile Intelligence Service’

Some journalists have come to Assange’s defense, saying the charge is an affront to journalistic freedom.

But the U.S. government has long drawn a distinction between Wikileaks and news media.

“It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is—a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” State Secretary Mike Pompeo, then-CIA director, said in April 2017.

“Assange and his ilk make common cause with dictators” and “do not care about the causes and people they claim to represent.

“If they did, they would focus instead on the autocratic regimes in this world that actually suppress free speech and dissent. Instead, they choose to exploit the legitimate secrets of democratic governments—which has, so far, proven to be a much safer approach than provoking a tyrant.”

Russian Hacking Link

On July 13, 2018, special counsel Robert Mueller filed charges against a group of Russian operatives for allegedly hacking files of the employees of the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

The documents and emails were released through two fictional personas—DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0—as well as a third entity not named in the indictment, though, based on the context, is likely Wikileaks.

Assange has denied all along that the DNC emails came from a Russian hack, instead, saying that it was a leak. He has also alluded that the source may have been Seth Rich, voter expansion data director for the DNC. In the early hours of July 10, 2016, Rich was gunned down about a block from his Washington home in what police called a possible robbery attempt. None of his valuables appeared to have been stolen and the police never identified a suspect.

New Zealand hacker Kim Dotcom also claimed Rich was the source, but provided no evidence aside from a claim that he, himself, was involved.

The Waldman Link

Adam Waldman, a lawyer to Assange in 2017, also represented Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, as well as interests of former British spy Christopher Steele. In early 2016, Steele appeared to be lobbying Justice Department official Bruce Ohr on Deripaska’s behalf and dropped Waldman’s name in the process. Later that year, he was paid by the DNC and the Clinton campaign to produce a dossier of unsubstantiated claims about Trump–Russia ties, which was then used by the FBI to obtain a spying warrant on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The circumstances of surveilling the Trump campaign are now under investigation by the Justice Department.

‘Miserable Existence’

Assange stayed at Ecuador’s London embassy in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden for questioning in the sexual assault investigation.

A friend of his said the stay was hard to bear because of the solitude combined with, paradoxically, a lack of privacy.

“It was a miserable existence and I could see it was a strain on him, but a strain he managed rather well,” said Vaughan Smith, a friend who visited Assange. “The thing that was most difficult for Julian was the solitude.

“He was very tough, but the last year in particular was very difficult. He was constantly being surveilled and spied upon. There was no privacy for him.”

BREAKING THIS WEEK: “Day of Reckoning is Coming for the Deep State”

Originally published at Stillness in the Storm
by Justin DesChamps, April 4th, 2019

Rumors of mass arrests are nothing new. But it appears that for the first time in history, we’re actually witnessing a major mobilization to take down the Deep State. Some will argue that this is just another Cabal operation. In my review of those claims, I haven’t been able to confirm anything substantial—mostly rumor and unfounded suspicion. One thing is clear, the media is reporting on this Deep State takedown. Whoever is coordinating it, they want you to know. This fact, in concert with many others, in my opinion, suggests that at the very least, one faction of the Deep State is indeed being dismantled—the Clinton-Bush-Rockefeller faction.

This is a good reason to be hopeful. However, we should not let ourselves become complacent.

A people are the guards against undue power and influence, through our wise and unified efforts. Even if the Deep State is completely wiped from the earth, how can we guarantee that the new system will be any better? Because we’ve taken the time to understand what true justice, honorable government, and law are, along with an honest look at history. These are the keys to lasting freedom and prosperity. A people without wisdom in this regard is doomed to give up their freedoms to autocrats in a few generations.

Despite my doubts, I err on the side of hope with these developments. I think that whatever alliance is working against the Deep State wants the people to get wise and wake up.

In history, there have always been forces of goodness that work against evil. Often, only a small handful of dedicated individuals manage to hold back the floodgates of darkness. If you feel you are one of these individuals, don’t lose hope. Freedom will win with our help.

Barr Reviewing FBI Conduct During 2016 Election In Separate, Wide-Ranging Probe

Originally published by Zerohedge
April 4th, 2019

Attorney General William Barr will appear before the House of Representatives appropriations subcommittee on Tuesday for the first time since special counsel Robert Mueller submitted his Russia report surrounding the 2016 US election, reports Reuters

While the session is intended to explore the Trump administration’s $29 billion Justice Department fiscal 2020 budget request, Barr will undoubtedly face questions about the Mueller report and when Congress might expect to see a redacted version.

Barr has been working with Mueller to redact sensitive portions of the report, including grand-jury information following a ruling last week at the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. He has indicated that it will be ready by mid-April, in just a few days. 

Mueller turned his confidential report over to Barr on March 22 following a 22-month-long probe into whether Donald Trump may have colluded with Russia during his 2016 presidential campaign and whether Trump later obstructed inquiries into the matter.

On March 24, Barr released a four-page letter to Congress laying out what he said were Mueller’s main findings. Barr is expected to submit a redacted copy of the full report to the public and Congress by mid-April, or even sooner. –Reuters

Democrats are using the redactions to suggest that Barr and the Trump administration are holding back vital information which they hope might deliver the impeachment they’ve sought for more than two years, despite Mueller’s findings of no collusion – and AG Barr and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein determining that Trump did not obstruct the probe.

On Monday, Rep. Doug Collins – the top Republican on the Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee, wrote a scathing letter to the panel’s chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) accusing him of putting Attorney General William Barr in an “untenable but politically convenient situation.” Barr would be forced to “break the law” if he provides an unredacted report – and he doesn’t, Nadler will “label him as part of a cover-up.” 

According to Barr’s written testimony, the Attorney General will focus Tuesday’s discussion on issues including immigration enforcement, the opioid epidemic and combating violent crime. 

He is scheduled for a Wednesday appearance in front of a Senate appropriations panel.

The comments come after House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said over the weekend he was preparing to send eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week regarding alleged misconduct by DOJ and FBI officials during the Trump-Russia investigation. It is unclear whom Nunes will refer for investigation, and what the process at the Justice Department might be. –Fox News

Barr says he hasn’t seen Nunes’ referrals yet, adding “Obviously, if there is a predicate for investigation, it will be conducted.”

Update3: Barr says that the Justice Department’s Inspector General is working on reviewing the process used by the FBI to obtain a FISA surveillance warrant on Trump campaign aide Carter Page, and that the IG report will be complete in May or June. Barr also said that he’s overseeing a separate wider investigation.

Barr reiterates that Mueller is currently participating in the redaction process, and says the rationale for all redactions will be specifically explicated. Barr says the Report will be issued “within a week,” consistent with what he said all along. Another blow to the truthers.

Benjamin Fulford Interview: Asia Declares a NEW ERA – Prepare For Change

Benjamin Fulford’s sources (the alleged White Dragon Society, Japanese Government officials, CIA, Gnostics, Freemasons, Yakuza, etc) have an on and off track record and have also intentionally fed him disinformation in the past. That being said he has still been one of the most successful independent journalists in the fight to uncover clandestine geopolitics, and one of the only people to have been granted a legendary interview with the elusive David Rockefeller during his time working at FORBES. Despite the accuracy or inaccuracy of what is claimed it is still important to take in all data and then exercise personal discernment instead of instantly denouncing or praising anyone’s claims and research. It is better to consider and speculate than to blindly believe or deny.

Yellow Vests ransack MASONIC LODGE in French village

Originally published @ RT

A crowd of Yellow Vest protesters broke into and trashed a Masonic lodge in the French village of Tarbes. The ransacking has been condemned by the French government, who accused the protesters of “stupidity” and “intolerance.”

Some 450 protesters had gathered in Tarbes on Saturday for the 17th straight weekend of anti-government demonstrations. Around midnight, La Dépêche paper reported, some protesters began shouting “we’re going to the freemasons!”

A smaller crowd of protesters marched on the Masonic temple, with one battering down the door of the secretive organization’s clubhouse. More protesters pelted rocks at the building and eventually the group forced its way inside. They overturned furniture, trashed the esoteric art hanging on the walls, and stole four ceremonial swords; they gave these back later on.View image on Twitter

Police have opened an investigation, and France’s Interior Minister Christophe Castaner condemned the vandalism.

“After the Jews, the Freemasons,” he tweeted, alluding to alleged anti-Semitism within the ranks of the protesters. “When stupidity encounters intolerance, it is the worst.” Castaner also accused the Yellow Vests of having “no other project than hatred.”

Across the country, somewhere between 28,000 and 90,000 protesters took to the streets on Saturday to voice their opposition to the policies of unpopular president Emmanuel Macron, which, they say, benefit the rich but not the majority. Some 2,000 protesters have been injured and dozens maimed in clashes with police since November.

The movement’s organizers have planned a massive demonstration for next Saturday, timed to coincide with the end of President Macron’s three-month ‘Great National Debate,’ a public forum aimed at quelling the tide of dissent in France and forging “a new contract with the nation.”

The Yellow Vests have mostly focused their attention on Macron’s economic policies, and have not singled out the Freemasons as a target. However, the Masons’ secretive nature and powerful membership have made the organization a target for popular anger in the past and has fueled countless conspiracy theories.
