The question lurking behind this satire is; if Wikileaks is in a position to crush ‘the Russians did it’ DNC bs, why haven’t they? Because Assange is more important than pulling the rug out from the morons in DC using the patent ‘hack’ bullshit to jack geopolitical rivalry and tensions with Russia, incredibly, dangerously high? Craig Murray needs to come clean –

Craig Murray
(& result of the moron-o-meter exam)

I’d perused the Wikispooks biography page on Craig Murray [1] and noticed a few things. Craig Murray insists he has lived…

“as a dissident where I have devoted my life to exposing, and trying to counter, the evil of the neo-conservative policy pursued by our political class at the behest of the corporations who fund them. I have suffered a huge loss in money, status and most of the other normal aspirations. But what I have gained is invaluable. I have respect and love, while Blair and Straw will forever be despised”

Well, Craig, as much as I despise the neoliberals Blair and Straw and their neoliberal policies, you certainly don’t have my respect and love. Notice the first symptom of a personality flaw: the cultural imperative where drive to wealth and status is a “normal aspiration.” I very much doubt Murray has preserved his original working class dialect for everyday use. In Britain, the first words out of one’s mouth typically identifies a person’s class affiliation.

Handicapped by upper class aspirations = minus one point.

Doesn’t know the difference between a neoconservative & a neoliberal = minus one point.

“Following publication of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Report on the CIA’s Use of Torture in December 2014, Craig Murray said “Can I just say how pleasant it is to be vindicated ten years after being sacked by Jack Straw for opposing the torture and extraordinary rendition programme – which Blair and Straw claimed I was inventing.” In an audio interview on 12 December 2014, Craig Murray recounted his experience to Scottish journalist and broadcaster Derek Bateman examining the legacy of Labour in a week when revelations about state-sanctioned torture by the CIA under Bush/Cheney further threaten the reputation of the Blair government” -Wikispooks

…Murray’s ‘pleased to be vindicated’ based on a calculated whitewash report where CIA complicity in a far wider legacy of kidnapping to torture had been glossed over is hardly the stuff of playing hardball against the team of criminals. Murray should have done the math; 119 prisoners (the report’s numbers) renditioned to black sites versus eleven thousand identified renditions plane flights just doesn’t add up [2]

Sucked up an establishment produced, deliberate whitewash of CIA renditions = minus one point.

Murray believes in virgin birth, the tooth fairy and the patent nonsense World Trade Center Building 7 died of fright on 9/11, no matter thousands of professionals with understanding of steel & concrete structures conclude there was at least one, indisputable, professionally engineered building demolition at WTC on 9/11 [3]

“Craig Murray announced in 2010 that he would summarily remove any comments about 9/11 from his website, stating his own position that “I do not believe that the US government, or any of its agencies, were responsible for 9/11. It would just need too many people to be involved. Someone would have objected”” -Wikispooks

Cowardly aversion to ‘conspiracy theorist’ label = minus one point.

Murray is a professionally trained diplomat but not a spook. This is clear on more than one point (see a second point in his Wikileaks interactions) and this one goes to Murray’s rank fail on how spy agencies propagandize their own people with false intelligence reports when backstopping lies via a technique called “eyewash” [4], [5]

“Craig Murray has publicly supported the Al Jazeera documentary, “Lockerbie: What Really Happened?” which concluded that the Lockerbie bombing was ordered by Iran and carried out by the PFLP-GC, with help from Hezbollah, and if Libya had a role, it was secondary. Murray blogged that “The information on Lockerbie published in today’s Daily Mail from an Iranian defector, matches precisely what I was shown in a secret intelligence report in the FCO just around the time of the first Iraq war. It was decided that this would be kept under wraps because the West needed Iran and Syria’s quiescence in the attack on Iraq”” -Wikispooks

Yo, Craig, wake-up call, your Iranian defector likely took MI6 script matching your own case of eyewash (backstopped the lie you’d been fed), the Pan Am 103 bombing easily should be a reprise of the murder of Dag Hammarskjold, only in this case was Britain and South Africa’s intelligence services execution of Bernt Carlsson who’d been preparing prosecution of Her Majesty’s government yellow cake trafficking [6], [7]

Does Her Majesty a favor with an eyewash blind spot = minus one point

And finally we have Stickyleaks…

“I took half an hour out yesterday from building the Doune the Rabbit Hole site to take part in a worldwide broadcast in support of Julian Assange. You can see me here on YouTube from 3 hours and 43 minutes in, though you may prefer to watch Slavoj Zizek who is on just before me ❤️❤️❤️

“The fact that I could broadcast video to people all over the world from a beautiful but remote field in the shadow of the Trossachs, via a mobile phone connection, is an example of just why the state and corporate media can no longer dominate the narrative with their propaganda. That is the main subject of my brief talk” craigmurray.org.uk July 2018 [8]

Ok, so Craig Murray, who has all but admitted he met with Seth Rich in the DNC leaks case (probably to verify the authenticity of the mails prior to Wikileaks paying cash to Rich, not to be the conduit) and possibly (very likely) as a surveilled  high profile associate of Wikileaks got Rich identified as the DNC source, causing Rich to be assassinated (a trained spook uses a cut out to prevent just this sort of scenario)…

murray_wikileaks-1

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things” -Craig Murray

…somehow doesn’t understand (cannot connect the dots) the fact Julian Assange was a critical gear in the intelligence agency (primarily CIA & MOSSAD) information operations responsible for the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ … leading to not only revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt but also the overthrow of Gaddafi and the Syrian ‘civil war.’ How does Craig Murray, when evangelizing with his perception of Assange as a hero, drive that square peg into the round hole of Wikileaks supported the intelligence agency geopolitical engineering called the Arab Spring? [9], [10], [11]

Failed basic espionage 101 by meeting directly with a Wikileaks source = minus one point

Doesn’t understand how organizations like Wikileaks serve intelligence agencies’ interests as in the case of the Arab Spring = minus one point

Narcissistic infatuation with Assange sans perspective, together with not interfered with in his electronic communications by intelligence agencies (allowed at youtube) because he’s actually not a threat as much as a manipulated stooge resulting in a limited hangout = minus one point:

Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept calls out the New York Times journalists exposing ‘fake news’ by pointing out they’re plagiarizing Russian media on what actually happened with the torched ‘humanitarian aid’ at the Venezuela-Colombia border. Huh? Yeah, it’s a head-scratch worthy of a political chimp, because Greenwald DOES NOT explore the most important question: who benefits from the NYT story in media that (Greenwald acknowledges) might as well be outright owned by the (deep) state. The real story here? White House occupying Kissinger-philosophy-neocon-Christian-Zionist-Pentagon centered ‘national security’ clique 0 – 1 wannabe White House occupying Brzezinski-philosophy-neoliberal-globalist-CIA centered ‘national security’ clique (noting there is some overlay between cliques from their respective bases of power.)

Russian media prints what you won’t see in your everyday liberal democracies’ newspaper; British intelligence had proposed a plan to massacre Catholic schoolchildren in Northern Ireland but this was a reach too far, even for the Ulster Protestant extremists:

Per the preceding story, I don’t expect for one minute Trump is clean (and it does not bode well a blackmail susceptible reality TV freak is POTUS) but he’s a petty criminal character by comparison to what’s covered up at the United States Department of Justice.

We begin with the straw man (or men.) Finally it has come to a time of accepting the Western political leadership is, in and of itself, a criminal class and the model of democracy a criminal model. It’d be better to return to the drawing board in the human experiment concerning social governance, whether political or religious, because:

In any democracy, ethics, self restraint, tolerance and honesty will always take a second seat to narcissism, avarice, bigotry & persecution, if only because people who play by the rules in any democracy are at a disadvantage to those who easily subvert the rules to their own advantage (Ronald’s Maxim)

Straw man number one: Hate crime and people preserving ‘original sin’ as a cultural motif in the living oxymoron of deciding what is hate. Example in American Christian culture would be the ‘hate watchdog’ Southern Poverty Law Center doesn’t touch the neo-Platonic pederasty that is the Catholic church where theology holds women can never be priests for the proposed ‘fact’ of Eve seducing Adam on behalf of evil. That’s not a ‘hate crime’ ?

This only get better (worse, actually) in a culture incompatible with its pretensions; where Saul of Tarsus (a.k.a. St Paul) demands all of creation is dirtied by original sin and ruled by Satan. [1] Thusly what ‘Saint Paul’ taught (part & parcel of a mythology superimposed on the historical Jesus) [2] is allowed to be shoved in people’s faces across the planet (the ‘Great Commission’), where it is proposed if you don’t accept being “covered in the blood of Jesus” (because you are dirty) you will burn for eternity and this isn’t a hate crime? If St Paul wasn’t the first self-hating human, certainly he is among history’s greatest of self-hating humans and it should say a lot he is a driving icon motivating Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence. When it comes to these Christian Zionists empowering Israel’s miscreant geopolitical behaviors, Bibi Netanyahu is a petty criminal by comparison. There is no related hate crimes noticeable by the Southern Poverty Law Center in regards to Mike Pompeo stating:

“we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ is our savior is truly the only solution for our world” -Mike Pompeo

Yes truly, this is the only solution backed by the usual suspects of empire killing people across the globe … and if you don’t play their game (practice their murderous brand of Christianity) [3] you’re not among the ‘new chosen’ and undeserving of not only privilege but your life is lesser than what ‘goy’ is to the ‘original chosen.’ A ‘heads up’ for Phil Giraldi [4] the fact of sixty million American Zionist Christians (one in four Americans who identify as Christian) pushing for a ‘Greater Israel’ tells me ‘Jews are the problem’ is a straw man. [5] In fact historically it has been Jews, not Jesuits, working to preserve the American constitution and the USA’s (none the less failed) adherence to the rule of law. [6]

We can close the preceding bit on the Americans with an ‘honorable mention’ (that’s irony, for those readers with a thick noggin) awarded to the American Civil Liberties Union for defending American Nazi hate speech (with no problems from the Southern Poverty Law Center) and now we’ll move on to the ‘mental midget’ Macron and his ‘anti-Zionism’ is ‘anti-Semitism’ straw man. [7]

“Anti-Zionism is one of the modern forms of anti-Semitism. Behind the negation of Israel’s existence, what is hiding is the hatred of Jews” -Emmanuel Macron

Now, just wait one f**king minute. Anti-Zionism could be an irrational hatred of Rastafarians. Anti-Zionism could be a VERY HEALTHY opposition to the religious (and closet political) agenda of Mike Pompeo & Mike Pence and their cult motivated ‘end of days’ apocalyptic vision [8] set in the Middle East based on ‘Bible Prophecy’ … and related policies supporting the Israeli religious right stoking tensions throughout the region. Anti-Zionism could also be support for international law denying the illegal occupation and annexation of East Jerusalem and Golan (with the West Bank likely to follow) where the Israeli political right is motivated to sleight of hand territorial ambitions in pursuit of a ‘Greater Israel.’

Allowing Macron to define anti-Semitism per his preceding quote (straw man) would be to give Bibi Netanyahu and his über-right alliance cover for pursuit of the (patently illegal) Greater Israel; where as of February 2019 everyone who’d been identified as “Anti-Zionist” while opposing the Greater Israel project (but not Israel within its United Nations established borders) can now be smeared as anti-Semite. Perhaps few, if any, greater favors had been done for the criminal element in Jewish Zionism and the historical fraud of Ben Gurion, whose admitted disingenuous acceptance of Israel’s lawful borders were a means to an end: in a drive to establish Israel beyond its lawful boundaries. [9]

How is it Macron had suddenly decided to ‘gift’ the criminal element within Zionism a world class opportunity to smear that very criminal element’s enemies? The answer is obvious and straightforward; the Jesuit educated, anti-Semite Macron had ‘stepped on his dick’ (an American military expression) when he’d proposed to rehabilitate Vichy France leader (Nazi collaborator who ‘led’ France during the terror of Klaus Barbie) Marshal Petain [10] and set himself up for blackmail.

A consummate criminal politician of the Western stripe, the blackmailed Macron then performed political fellatio on some one certain actor (likely MOSSAD leapt at the opportunity) to save his career; and the President of the Fifth Republic has now defined the ultimately sane element in anti-Zionism as anti-Semitic.

As for the rest of the story, here is example of everything you need to know about threats MOSSAD is capable of carrying through, a straw-man, and what the Macron ‘legacy’ might have faced:

“Emmanuel Macron was found dead in his home after having sex with a scarecrow that he had dressed up in a wig, lipstick and strap-on sex toy.

“The molested remains of Macron’s scarecrow were discovered in his home after neighbours reported a foul smell coming from the building.

“Police forced their way into Macron’s private home in a Paris suburb, and were stunned to discover the 40-year-old politician lying dead.

“Next to him lay a scarecrow that had been dressed up as a woman – but wearing a strap-on sex toy.

“Bernard Bajolet, a spokesman for the prosecutor, said: “We initially thought there were two bodies but then realised one was a scarecrow wearing lipstick and a long-haired wig.

“It was lying next to the deceased and had a six-inch strap-on penis.

“There were no signs of violence and we are working on the assumption that Macron died during sex with his scarecrow” [11]

On Intimidation, Cowardice & Corruption
(at the International Criminal Court)

“Drill and uniforms impose an architecture on the crowd. An army’s beautiful. But that’s not all; it panders to lower instincts than the aesthetic. The spectacle of human beings reduced to automatism satisfies the lust for power. Looking at mechanized slaves, one fancies oneself a master” -Aldous Huxley

The United Nations is an experiment in democracy founded on the Western principles of international law. Angela Merkel’s conflating globalism with multilateralism (these are NOT the same thing) notwithstanding, the United Nations is a global body established by multilateral treaties. This does not establish ‘globalism’ but serves as a platform for facilitating relationships between sovereign nations. The International Criminal Court is example of this, where the ‘Rome Statute’ (the multilateral treaty establishing the court) had been ‘midwifed’ from within the UN but created a court (the ICC) that is ostensibly independent. However the UN Security Council may refer cases to the ICC, the UN has no authority over the court and no power to extend or curtail the courts jurisdiction, which is solely over those nations which had opted to enter into the treaty (Rome Statute) creating the court.

However, if the institutions of the United Nations are notoriously politicized and corrupt, and they most certainly are [1] it follows the UN’s closely aligned institutions might be expected to show similar symptoms.

We have recently seen these symptoms (read on) but it should be noted the ICC had been undermined from its inception, particularly by the USA in what appears on its face to have been a geo-strategic policy of fraudulent engagement of the Rome Statute process. In short, the USA participated in the setting up of the court but used its considerable influence to prevent the court adopting a principle of universal jurisdiction. With the court at its formation limited to jurisdiction over nations entering into the Rome Statute treaty, the USA would appear to have disingenuously joined the court (signed on) but never seriously pursued ratification (the legal necessity of a democratic nation’s parliamentary body affirming the state executive signature) and therefor never came under the court’s jurisdiction.

What had been created is a social oxymoron in actuality; a core body of nations (Europe, EU & NATO nations, particularly) determined never to self-prosecute but to use the prosecutorial vehicle provided by the Rome Statute as post-colonial geopolitical device aimed at African states in ongoing state of neocolonialism. Consequently the court has seen to the prosecutions of politicians from Congo, Kenya, Sudan and Ivory Coast but not the French role in Rwanda’s genocide or Paul Kagame, a USA darling:

“He’s [Kagame] actually gotten a free ride from the ICC despite all the evidence of his army creating, sponsoring militias in Congo since 2002. Militias sponsored by Kagame’s troops have plundered, killed civilians and recruited child soldiers in the Congo yet Kagame and his commanders have not been indicted by the ICC” [2], [3], [4]

Relevant to the French immunity (impunity), this raises a question concerning whether European states signatory to the Rome Statute, that is a “coalition of the willing” should have been liable for what amounts to a ‘crime against humanity’, or an estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 dead civilians having resulted due to infrastructure destruction (e.g. disease via water contamination), when Iraq had been invaded despite the invading states’ leaders (notably Tony Blair) knowing that invasion’s premise was false. Are the EU & NATO states’ accountability waived by the ICC?

It hardly seems a ‘crime of aggression’ need be adopted to hold states responsible for their acts where existing statutory law should be adequate.

This brings us to a recent case filed by this reporter points to corruption. For purpose of defining corruption in the case at hand, identified by the court’s filing reference ICC OTP-CR-295/18 [5] it is asserted (by this reporter) any case of acquiesce in the face of intimidation is a form of corruption, where cases are shelved as opposed to pursued in good faith. Recent example of this is demonstrated in the resignation of an ICC judge citing two instance where the ICC had been subject to threats or subverted. [6]

In the first instance, Turkey arrested an ICC judge with Turk nationality under the pretext of ties to Gulen, an excuse often used by the current Salafi leadership of Turkey to rid itself of principled Sufi members of Turkey’s civil service. [7] The UN Secretary General, rather than confront Turkey with a principled stance no UN member state will unilaterally set precedent with the removal of ICC judges, allowed the precedent to stand.

The other instance causing his resignation (mentioned by Judge Flugge) is the well publicized (policy) threats against the ICC by USA National Security Advisor, John Bolton, in his speech to the Federalist Society. [8]

According to Christopher Black, a longtime barrister working the several international tribunals, including the ICC, the USA plays strongly:

“First of all through key personnel they have placed in the ICC, for example the prosecutors, some judges who are willing to do what they want…

“A judge in my case was threatened by Americans working there that if certain passages in the judgement acquitting the general I was defending were not removed he would face physical problems. This is the type of gangsterism they use to get their way in these tribunals”

Also specific to the USA, at a separate tribunal, according to Black:

“Not only was a judge in my case at the Rwanda tribunal pressured but I myself was threatened by the CIA while I was there to stop raising questions and presenting evidence they [the US side] did not like” [9]

The preceding suggests Turkey may have arrested the judge with Turkish nationality as a quid pro quo on behalf of a 3rd party to dispense with a judge perceived as a threat. In any case it’s clear the ICC is compromised.

Bearing the preceding in mind, in the case filed by this reporter, to begin it should be noted it was the ICC itself invited my filing, when the Office of the Prosecutor had responded, on 3 July 2018, to a letter I’d emailed to a German international law attorney on, 30 June 2018, copied to the ICC.

In both the letter and the complaint a clear line of evidence had been provided pointing to Turkey had (false-flag attack, in league with al Qaida) arranged the indiscriminate murder of well over 1,000 civilians at Ghouta, Syria in August of 2013. According to a Turkish parliamentarian, Eren Erdem, citing Turkish state produced investigative files in his possession, the chemicals used to produce the Sarin gas in this attack had been sourced in Europe. Turkish MP Erdem is on record stating:

“All basic materials are purchased from Europe. Western institutions should question themselves about these relations. Western sources know very well who carried out the sarin gas attack in Syria. They know these people, they know who these people are working with, they know that these people are working for Al-Qaeda. [What] I think is Westerns are hypocrites about the situation”

In this regard it is noted the court’s Office of the Prosecutor takes on the responsibility of assembling evidence:

“At the ICC, most evidence is collected and secured by the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP)” [10]

In the present case (ICC OTP-CR-295/18) the filing party (Ronald Thomas West) had assembled ample evidence to justify initiating a preliminary investigation that should have triggered the court looking into whether there had been the associated crime of ‘aiding and abetting’ committed within ICC jurisdiction. To bolster this, the case had been made an additional, associated crime of aiding and abetting had been demonstrated where German intelligence had misinformed German politicians of the facts actually surrounding the Ghouta sarin attack, so far as to blame Assad.

This last (immediate preceding) would not necessarily constitute a prosecutable crime (depending on what the judges might be inclined to believe on a given day) but there is more. This reporter had provided the necessary evidence to the concerned politicians correcting the record; indisputable evidence Turkey’s intelligence agency was providing sarin to al-Qaida militants within a timeline consistent with the Ghouta attack. [11]

This evidence submitted to the German executive (office of the Federal Prosecutor) and oversight (parliamentary leadership of all parties represented in the federal parliament) was never acted on; the German political establishment closed ranks across the political spectrum to deny the government of Syria honest assessment of the Ghouta attack. The false-flag crime accordingly sustained as a successful political ploy in regime change endeavors by EU and NATO states where those very states have become complicit in aiding and abetting a war crime with the act of material concealment of the actual perpetrators identity (a NATO state.) [12]

The German politicians (and related institutions) had been provided with the evidence on 2 December 2015. By the time this (very same) evidence had been provided to the ICC in a formalized complaint on 4 July 2018, thirty one months had passed without action by the Germans, satisfying the requirement Germany should have had opportunity to redress the wrong.

On 6 February 2019, one week after the resignation of Judge Christoph Flugge, the ICC Office of the Prosecutor replied to this reporter with:

“The Office of the Prosecutor has examined your communication and has determined that more detailed information would be required in order to proceed with an analysis of whether the allegations could fall within the jurisdiction of the Court. The Prosecutor has determined that, in the absence of such information, there is not a basis at this time to proceed with further analysis”

Essentially what the ICC has done is, to shelve the case with a demand this reporter who’d made the filing (at their invitation) provide information beyond simple and clear evidence aiding and abetting of a war crime is ongoing by a state within the jurisdiction of the court. This general, non-specific language, in the common vernacular, are called ‘weasel words.’

Why? Clearly the ramifications of adopting the practice of prosecuting the politicians empowering false flag geopolitical engineering by intelligence agencies is frightening and no doubt opposed by politician & spy alike.

Were the ICC to proceed in this case (whether it were a successful prosecution or acquittal), not only would it likely topple Angela Merkel, but it likely brings into reach Davis Cameron and his spy chief Alex Younger, also Francois Hollande and his spy chief Bernard Bajolet… and so on.

In the case of Germany, there is a safe assumption: There will be no prosecution of these crimes due to a German constitutional loophole larger than the Brandenberg Gate … “for the good of the state.” Because at the end of the day, it is (a commonly used German expression) “just not possible” to rock the boat with Turkey or cross the USA.

Why the International Criminal Court matters (in the present moment) has little to do with justice and much to do with exposing the corruption of foundational principles across the spectrum of international institutions.

*

The ICC had been provided a nearly identical draft of this (preceding) with opportunity to comment. [13] Prior to releasing this for initial publication at the Ft Russ news website, two weeks have passed and no reply has been forthcoming. The ICC also declined to clarify the nature of “more detailed information [that] would be required” and has remained silent on my asking whether the German authorities had been contacted with request for information and if so, the nature of any reply.

Noteworthy is the ICC does not deny the “allegations” (the evidence is too strong) nor does the ICC altogether dismiss the possibility of jurisdiction (they have jurisdiction over complicit parties within the EU, only are either intimidated and afraid or too corrupted to exercise it, probably a combination) rather finds a ‘weasel words’ excuse to shelve a case that would call out the hypocrisy of the European signatories to the Rome Statute based on the criminality of the EU/NATO intelligence agencies.

The net result is, as of this moment the false-flag sarin attack at Ghouta, Syria (and murder of well over 1,000 innocents) during the month of August 2013 remains a successful sleight-of-hand attack blamed on the wrong party and the crime of aiding and abetting the perpetrators, it could be argued, extends to the International Criminal Court itself, in case where refusal to correct the public record protects the guilty parties. I would describe this as ‘international criminal complicity’ when a UN associated judicial body becomes aware of an easily rectified element of a major war crime, as simple as recognizing an evidence based false-flag, and instead chooses to sit on its hands.

The pity of it all is, if there were courage to pursue jurisdiction over those complicit parties within the Rome Statute’s signatory states, a precedent would be established perhaps leading (over time) to further precedent where anyone complicit in war crimes and crimes against humanity could be arrested when stepping on any Rome Statute nation’s soil and progress made in realizing accountability.

In any democracy, ethics, self restraint, tolerance and honesty will always take a second seat to narcissism, avarice, bigotry & persecution, if only because people who play by the rules in any democracy are at a disadvantage to those who easily subvert the rules to their own advantage

Recalling…

Is it a case of I don’t understand Russian propaganda or is it Russian propagandists don’t fully understand the Western mentality or is it a case of the Russians are handling the madmen of NATO with ‘kid gloves’ ?

…now we dig into the enigma of Russian propaganda in relation to Wikileaks and exactly ‘W.T.F.‘ is going on?

kim_dotcom - 1

Ignoring Kim Dotcom’s assigning of responsibility to Hillary Clinton (a deep state muppet whose singular intelligence is best represented in her giant ass), Dotcom has a point; Robert Mueller’s steadfast determination to avoid any interaction with Dotcom and Assange, only waiting to see them both buried in a maximum security USA prison (where they can’t talk.) Why? [1]

Because circumstantial evidence it was the (promptly assassinated) Seth Rich provided the DNC mails to Wikileaks with a memory stick is so strong, we are only missing the electronic trail of stick itself, and testimony of those (still alive) parties arranging transfer & receipt of data on the stick (together with evidence concerning the DNC mails’ chain of custody), or Kim Dotcom and Julian Assange (likely with an assist from Craig Murray), to send the whole Crowdstrike-Fancy Bear fairy tale to the sewer from which it had emerged (laundered false evidence likely originating with John Brennan’s CIA, THE reason our corrupt FBI leadership never permitted their cyber-experts to forensically examine the DNC servers), back down the toilet together with ‘the Russians did it’ accusation and Robert Mueller’s special counsel mandate. [2]

The Enigma(s)

Julian Assange’s only (or best) chance at avoiding extradition to the USA is to put the DNC mails evidence into the public domain and make the political price of his extradition too high, with the entire ‘the Russians did it’ case collapsed in the public purview. Instead, that moron insists on with-holding the evidence as a classified ‘bargaining chip’ evidenced in his attempt to negotiate a pardon from Trump via Dana Rohrabacher that utterly failed to get past the USA’s deep state minions (John Kelly) and saw Rohrabacher tuck his tail and withdraw from the effort. Result? Status quo ante, the ‘witch hunt’ (Robert Mueller farce) goes on.

Yet Russian propaganda continues to spin Wikileaks in a positive light even as that organization has caused tremendous damage to Russia’s geopolitical interests with allowing the false informing of the Western democracies populace with the DNC ‘hack’ fantasy, by refusing to put it to rest. Recent example is RT’s Jesse Ventura hosting guest John Kiriakou where they gush praise over Wikileaks and Kiriakou disingenuously insists Wikileaks has never given up a source, perhaps technically true…

At minute 10:50: “WikiLeaks is the only organization that has not blown a source” -John Kiriakou [3]

…but in actuality is a lie by omission, overlooking a non-Wikileaks player involved:

kim_dotcom - 1 (1)

[4] & [5]

kim_dotcom - 1 (3)

Setting aside the blatantly propagandized image of Wikileaks by Western press, one would expect either American ‘alternative’ media, or alternatively, Russian media, would have explored the numerous holes in what amounts to the urban legend surrounding Julian Assange & Wikileaks, because Assange’s  character is certainly not unassailable and the Wikileaks organization is certainly not immune to penetration and manipulation by intelligence agencies. Exploring this subject could/should include Assange’s refusal to provide evidence and name Seth Rich, a dead man, as the source, ending the charade, but he won’t. How is Assange getting such stupid advice as to refuse the act that could serve to save his butt by making his extradition too great a political price to pay? Yet exploring the obvious hasn’t happened in any serious way this investigator is aware of outside of this site’s own assessments. [6]

What is ‘radioactive’ having to do with exploring Wikileaks in this regard? Why isn’t alternative media and Russian media backing Kim Dotcom’s assertions and calling out Wikileaks on the DNC mails, there is quite strong independent evidence and sources, including Seymour Hersh, to support Seth Rich was the source. Is the alternative media intimidated at the thought of alienating Assange’s supporters to point of allowing the farce of ‘Russiagate’ go on? Is the real price the Russians are unwilling to risk to do with an idea the madmen of NATO would pull the nuclear trigger rather than face accountability, that is a case of ‘kid gloves’ ?

In the age of suicide bombers and ‘backpack nukes’, it makes little difference, someone needs to call the criminals out; either you chance it and call their bluff or likely we could all get blown to bits anyway [7]

The left ones think I’m [on the] right, the right [wing] ones think I’m wrong -Leon Russell

To start, my message of what’s happening that’s important in its bearing on the new year, the USA animus towards Russia and all of its implications, we begin in a historical context with this screenshot naming the author of a patent lie:

Mueller_Lockerbie - 1

Insofar as 2018 stories, of the several geopolitical events of considerable importance, in my estimation it is the deep state’s Robert Mueller role-as-mole or charade as ‘special counsel’ should draw the necessary attention to underline the so-called ‘Trumanite’ network embedded in the USA’s security structures. Of the MANY exposures (in the public domain) of this man as a fraud devoted to what amounts to an anti-constitutional order that has stepped itself up and above the rule of law, there are three that stand out to degree to disqualify him as anything other than corrupt; 1) in his role as deputy attorney general during the Bush 41 administration, Robert Mueller headed up the USA end of the Lockerbie investigation that was later exposed by a Chief of Scots police as a frame-up of Libya due to false evidence and testimony provided by the USA, 2) it was Robert Mueller had been exposed by a United States Senate investigation (that was never acted on) showing the United States Department of Justice sandbagged the criminal case against Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) and subsequently 3) it was Robert Mueller’s FBI for a decade refused to arrest a serial killer, Enrique Prado, despite more than ample evidence (a proverbial ‘mountain’ of evidence) provided to the Department of Justice by both state and federal law enforcement.

The common thread in these events? It is the Central Intelligence Agency. The USA end of the Lockerbie investigation was tied to false physical evidence planted by the CIA and the FBI provided the ‘expert’ testimony of Thomas Thurman (exposed as a fraud) upholding the same under Robert Mueller’s watch, BCCI was all about the CIA’s Iran-Contra international arms and narcotics money laundering investigation Mueller worked to contain (damage control) and Enrique Prado is not only a serial killer responsible for multiple drug cartel related murders that Mueller’s FBI failed to act on, but also happens to double as a high ranking CIA official who moved on to Blackwater where the CIA’s own contract killings became outsourced (Prado remains free & has never been prosecuted.) Of the many instance of Robert Mueller’s dirty work for CIA, these three cases are remarkable for the fact they are reasonably indisputable. [1], [2], [3]

It follows, when Robert Mueller is assigned to support ‘the Russians did it’ forgone conclusion at the trial by Western media, it demands investigation of Mueller’s endeavors and it cannot come as a surprise there are numerous, major holes in ‘the Russians did it’ story replete with CIA fingerprints (Bruce & Nellie Ohr, Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike.) It follows, these are the 2018 ronaldthomaswest.com stories that bear on what will follow in the new year:

https://ronaldthomaswest.com/2018/12/20/usa-really-robert-mueller/

These preceding stories concern a social poison that could morph into WWIII when you think about in certain terms; The USA’s deep state/intelligence agencies framing Russia as a criminal with (excuse me) ‘trumped up’ charges is not like falsely accusing your local rival mobster. The difference is tremendous and what is frightening is, the small mentalities who believe they can produce a stool pigeon, e.g. Christopher Steele, to give false testimony and expect the result will be a conviction, are creating a very big problem for all of us, because you cannot simply lock Russia up … and the falsely convicted are not prone to be especially friendly towards their prosecutors. When the Russians see opportunity to rectify this injustice, because the perpetrators almost certainly will never admit their fraud, likely result will not be pretty. You and I dear reader, could pay for that. In a more radical scenario, with continuing pressure and tensions piled on, everyone could pay. Sans bullshit happy greetings, welcome to 2019.

Moving on, 2018 is remarkable for the fact I’d finally jelled my personal philosophy into print in the English language. This was exceptionally difficult because the pre-Western civilization that has shaped my views is not conducive to translation to Western thought and language per se. In fact I’m prepared to state almost all past anthropological endeavors in this regard are hopelessly flawed, especially those stemming from so-called ‘native studies’ programs (and their academic progeny) for the fact color of skin creates a pseudo or deceptive perception of validity. ‘Native studies’ is a politically correct euphemism for Western anthropology dressed up in red skins in a society which seems hopelessly trapped into lying to itself. Here is my attempted work-around:

My modest blog’s projected performance for 2018: 116 hits daily (on average for a bit under 3,500 per month.) This is up from 2017, but 2014 had been a stronger year, due to Ron Unz linking his assessment of the MH17 false-flag Malaysian airliner shoot-down over Novorossiya (the Donbass area of Ukraine) to my assessment of that same event.

Started in mid-2012, following Alternet discontinuing (and eventually deleting) my ‘soapbox’ blog, ronaldthomaswest.com began to get a bit of traction in 2013, with 2014 the blog’s strongest year, pulling in 45,000 hits. 2015 had about 40,000 (a lingering effect of Ron Unz linking to the MH17 piece), 2016 was at 26,000, 2017 bumped up to 36,500 views and 2018 is up to just over 42,000 reads. Over the lifespan of this blog, we are nearing 200,000 hits.

Alfreda Bikowsky and the Definition of Stupid, lampooning CIA renditions to torture with real statistics, is the most steadily read article over time (since it had been published in December 2014), and has consistently gained on the MH17 assessment and is this site’s most popular and enduring satire. As things stand, it is on track to become this sites all time most read piece in 2019.

The following ‘top ten’ are not all published in 2018 but were the most read for the year. The numbers are probably a bit higher than reflected in these stats as of 26 December; as there are approximately 3,000 reads for 2018 in the category ‘homepage/archives’ some of which probably are hits of articles in the following list. Amazingly, works in relation to my Native American experiences are the top two.

Finally, I continue to hold that sheer numbers are not necessarily the best marker for a blogs importance, who reads can be as important or more important. In regards to this, greetings to the spooks, some of you I admire and know, others I despise but nevertheless know you read here (and know who some of you are.)

Assange-Goodman - 1

An old American ‘boy-prank’ directed at a deserving person (to send a message) was to fill a small paper bag with a fresh dog shit, put just a little bit of lighter fluid (kerosene) on it, place this on the porch of the target, light the bag on fire, ring the doorbell and run. If all went to plan, the target would open their door to sight of a small fire and reflexively stamp it out with their feet. As a metaphor, I’m inclined to think someone had done this to Matt Taibbi, and perhaps, to the editors of RollingStone.

RollingStone’s Why You Should Care About the Julian Assange Case [1] by Matt Taibbi, is a piece this writer (yours truly) finds not only disingenuous but worthy of an intelligence agency propaganda award.

The thrust of the article being any prosecution of Julian Assange endangers journalism, we’ll dissect Taibbi’s premise concerning a very plausible secret/sealed indictment of Assange:

“Assange’s lawyer Barry Pollack told Rolling Stone he had “not been informed that Mr. Assange has been charged, or the nature of any charges.”

“Pollock and other sources could not be sure, but within the Wikileaks camp it’s believed that this charge, if it exists, is not connected to the last election.

““I would think it is not related to the 2016 election since that would seem to fall within the purview of the Office of Special Counsel,” Pollack said.

“If you hate Assange because of his role in the 2016 race, please take a deep breath and consider what a criminal charge that does not involve the 2016 election might mean. An Assange prosecution could give the Trump presidency broad new powers to put Trump’s media “enemies” in jail, instead of just yanking a credential or two. The Jim Acosta business is a minor flap in comparison”

These four paragraphs likely have Gina Haspel’s information operations people over at Langley, Virginia, orgasming in their pants. Taibbi omits the fact trying Assange on charges unrelated to the ‘the Russians did it’ is a solid means of shutting Assange up and burying him where he cannot shed any light concerning the 2016 elections’ intelligence agency caper. Trying Assange on unrelated charges, prior to sending him to deep isolation at, for instance, Florence ADX super-max, actually solves a CIA problem. How’d that work? The American legal principle of ‘relevance’ [2] where practically infinite technicalities can be argued to exclude any mention or reference to another case possibly pending before another court, such as the work of the incredibly corrupt [3], [4] special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, example given. Yep, sending Julian off to super-max on charges unrelated to the 2016 ‘the Russians did it’ would be perfectly predictable (desirable outcome) for those intelligence operatives who’d used Wikileaks to frame Russia, and some of Trump’s associates [5], [6], for meddling in the USA’s so-called ‘democratic processes.’ Hey, Matt Taibbi, was it Gina Haspel set the dog shit on fire you proceeded stamp out? Because a bit further on in his article, Taibbi goes on to screw it up even more:

“The perception that Assange worked with Vladimir Putin to achieve his ends has further hardened responses among his former media allies.

“As to the latter, Assange denies cooperating with the Russians, insisting his source for the DNC leak was not a “state actor.” It doesn’t matter. That PR battle has already been decided”

Beyond political fellatio, Gina Haspel would arrange a literal blow-job for Taibbi (even give it herself, if only she were pretty enough) because RollingStone has gone on record stating the DNC mails leak story is passé, out-of-fashion, old news. In other words, Taibbi is saying there is no point in investigative journalism looking into whether (the promptly assassinated) Seth Rich was Wikileaks’ source of the DNC mails, despite more than ample evidence, even a ‘preponderance of the evidence’ or the USA civil law standard necessary for conviction. [7] He might as well have written “Don’t go there.” Why? We’ll come back to this.

Taibbi:

“Although Assange may not be a traditional journalist in terms of motive, what he does is essentially indistinguishable from what news agencies do, and what happens to him will profoundly impact journalism”

This is not only wrong, Taibbi (apparently without noticing) contradicts it himself later in the article:

“…the relationship between Assange and the press deteriorated quickly. A lot of this clearly had to do with Assange’s personality. Repeat attempts by (ostensibly sympathetic) reporters to work with Assange ended in fiascoes … gain[ing] him a reputation for egomania and grandiosity.

“Partners like the Committee to Protect Journalists, who had been sifting through Wikileaks material to prevent truly harmful information from getting out, began to be frustrated by what they described as a frantic pace of releases”

Precisely. Journalists not only vet their sources (Assange, in the past, has stated Wikileaks does not [8] ) but they also must assess whether they can do more harm than good with the secrets they are in possession of, and consider how to finesse information that must be divulged in the public interest in such a way as to not create social chaos. One means of attempting this would be to refer the actual material (documents) evidencing state crimes to the apropos authorities, while restraining oneself to writing about having done this within the context of the story, putting the relevant authority on the spot and in a position of having to do something. Wikileaks dumping massive caches is not journalism. This is not a case of, as Taibbi would have it, “…what he [Assange] does is essentially indistinguishable from what news agencies do”, that is if the news-service is not corrupted and taking intelligence agency scripts to amplify fake stories and bury real stories (like the Associated Press, Reuters, Washington Post, New York Times do, and now, clearly, RollingStone also does.)

This brings us to Assange had attempted, via Dana Rohrabacher, a horse-trade with Trump, where Assange gets immunity from prosecution or a pardon and Trump gets definitive proof the Wikileaks DNC mails source was not Russia. [9] The people surrounding Trump, notably Chief of Staff John Kelly, shut that avenue down. [10] Taibbi, with his ‘don’t go there’ posed as “It doesn’t matter. That PR battle has already been decided” obviously isn’t going to touch this, rather wants it buried. Why?

Possibly, even likely, because of a phenomenon we had seen slip out of the closet during the Obama POTUS tenure, meetings with John Brennan on “Kill List Tuesdays” where America’s extra-judicial assassinations targeting list had been regularly updated, to include American citizens. [11], [12], [13]

We can likely add to the CIA’s three known assassinations of American citizens abroad these past seven years, two of those ordered by Obama and one ordered by Trump, at least two domestic assassinations by CIA, both of which tie into this assessment; Seth Rich and Michael Hastings.

Seth Rich removed, whether at that time incidental to present circumstance or not, doesn’t matter; that is to say if Rich was initially silenced for the leak to send a message, or silenced to remove a dupe, is immaterial to the present moment. Either way, Rich’s removal is part and parcel of what enabled the framing of Trump and Wikileaks for ‘Russian collusion.’ That’s a big piece of the ‘problematic witnesses’ solved for the people behind the making a patsy of Russia. It is entirely possible the DNC leak was initially a MOSSAD operation (Trump has been Bibi’s wet dream) and Rich was gunned down by Brennan’s CIA, with a ‘Russian collusion’ follow-on or the neo-liberal intelligence agency faction’s attempt to reverse the damage. A second possibility (the one I favor) is the leaked DNC mails by a duped Seth Rich reflects the internecine warfare between neocon and neoliberal elements in American intelligence. A third (least likely, in view of developments, but still plausible) possibility is, Rich’s had been an unmanipulated, straight-foward motivation based in a rather ‘naive idealism’ (victim of a Wikileaks bait and hook.)

Michael Hastings, whose car of its own will, took upon itself a desire to run into a tree at high speed and explode with the force of a military grade limpet mine, had been 1) investigating then CIA Director John Brennan, 2) in contact with Wikileaks, and 3) writing for RollingStone [14], all shortly before he died. A lesson Taibbi and his editors at RollingStone have taken to heart? It is no stretch of the imagination, at all, to assume Taibbi (and his employer) had subsequently been put on notice ‘you will take our script and run with it or die.’ The alternative is, RollingStone, editors & writers, had suddenly morphed into incredibly stupid parties who, by pure coincidence, appear to follow diktat and promote the intelligence agency line. Which do you think is more likely? Of course, it is also possible the insect species ignavum nominare [15] had crawled up Taibbi’s butt altogether independently of any specific threat.

Pointing towards wrapping this up, with turning our attention to Wikileaks per se, the following question must be posed: how is it certain alternative media stars miss that Julian Assange was a critical gear in the intelligence agencies (primarily CIA & MOSSAD) information operations responsible for the ‘Arab Spring’ … leading to not only revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt but also the overthrow of Gaddafi and the Syrian so-called ‘civil war.’ [16] How do Chris Hedges (RT’s On Contact), Caitlin Johnstone (medium.com), Glenn Greenwald (The Intercept), Vanessa Beeley (21st Century Wire), Raul Ilargi Meijer (Automatic Earth), and Elizabeth Vos (Disobedient Media), among others, with their defense of Assange, drive the ‘Assange is a good guy’ square peg into the round hole of Wikileaks assisting intelligence agencies geopolitical engineering the so-called Arab Spring? [17] This is also a question certain Wikileaks personalities should be asking themselves, notably Baltasar Garzon, Jennifer Robinson, and Craig Murray.

A second question the Wikileaks staff should be asking, among themselves is, whose strategy is it to conceal THE critical information, information that can only be helpful to Assange when it is made public: the method and source used by Wikileaks to acquire the DNC mails? Is this concealment a strategy of Sarah Harrison? Does Wikileaks have an uncompromised, professional counter-intelligence unit? Because if you don’t, you’re not only a lot of stooges, the lot of you are ultimately stupid. Take a lesson from Amnesty International:

“My conclusion was that a high-level official of Amnesty International at that time, whom I will not name, was a British intelligence agent. Moreover, my fellow board member, who also investigated this independently of me, reached the exact same conclusion. So certainly when I am dealing with people who want to work with Amnesty in London, I just tell them, “Look, just understand, they’re penetrated by intelligence agents, U.K., maybe U.S., I don’t know, but you certainly can’t trust them” [18]

Finally, when it comes to what Russia HAS done, it is to use their propaganda [19] to ‘flip’ the ‘Assangemania’ [20] infecting the Western alternative press, in a disingenuous way so as to promote Assange as a straight-foward example of a persecuted whistle-blower by the corrupt fascism of Western institutions, but this strategy ultimately props up ‘the Russians did it’ Western intelligence propaganda lie; and one wonders when the Russian press will get this. Assange’s currency as an asset is exhausted, no matter which side of the contest is taking advantage.
