“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public”

This expert (speaking at a public meeting), and it is worth the listen, says that masks are only good for virtue signalling, that the lock-downs are counter-productive madness, covid amounts to nothing more than a bad flu and that’s exactly how it should be treated (stay home from work, take warm soup & don’t visit the elderly), politics playing medicine is driving panic, only the vulnerable (e.g. care home residents) should be protected & 3 to 5 thousand IU of vitamin D daily reduces their chances of clinical covid dramatically, people under the age of 65 have a one in three hundred thousand chance of dying from the disease, and that testing is worthless because positives DO NOT indicate there will be a clinical case and in precise quotation the testing is “driving public hysteria.”

At just over five minutes, it is really worth a listen:

Transcript:

“This is Dr. Hodkinson, I just wanted to let you know I’m standing by.

“OK, well we would love to hear from you, the floor is yours.

“Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to address you on this very important matter. What I’m going to say is lay language, and blunt. It is counter-narrative, and so you don’t immediately think I’m a quack, I’m going to briefly outline my credentials so that you can understand where I’m coming from in terms of knowledge base in all of this.

“I’m a medical specialist in pathology which includes virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the UK. I’m the ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association. I was previously an assistant professor in the Faculty of Medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was the chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa, but more to the point I’m currently the chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina selling the COVID-19 test.

“And I might, you might say, I know a little bit about all of this. The bottom line is simply this: There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. Other than protecting older, more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine and that’s a very dangerous game.

“There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny and we decided when we would return to work. We didn’t need anyone to tell us.

“Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue-signaling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people — I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense — seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.

“Social distancing is also useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as well as was stated in the Great Barrington Declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting.

“And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for COVID. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection. It’s simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless you’re presenting to the hospital with some respiratory problem.

“All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control, give them all 3,000 to 5,000 international units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood of Infection.

“And I would remind you all that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this.

“The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you’re proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. It’s simply outrageous! It’s just another bad flu and you’ve got to get your minds around that.

“Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You’re being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health for this province. I am absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow.

“Thank you very much”

As a ‘social scientist’ (of sorts) the study I would like to see is on how mass social hysteria (an induced ‘societal-wide’ panic attack) methylates entire peoples’ DNA, damaging their immune function, almost certainly greatly aggravating the numbers of people presenting with serious infections. As well, nothing quite like ignorance effectively preparing populations to be even more susceptible for the next pandemic, eh? [1]

Meanwhile, let’s all be good boys & girls, keep the ignorant nanny state politicians happy so they have no excuses to double-down on their idiocy, i.e. play by the rules dictated by our rulers until they can find their gonads and sanity returns (sooner or later, the idiots should be able to sort ‘It’s the economy, Mr or Ms Stupid MP’), and most of all don’t let fear drive you into a worse social circumstance than that already created.

At nearly 70 years, I don’t need this infection but I also don’t need ‘increased measures’ (social controls), especially if I have had the virus already and gotten over it like any other bad cold.

23 Nov update:

“In their ruling, judges … referred to several scientific studies. Most notably this study by Jaafar et al., which found that – when running PCR tests with 35 cycles or more – the accuracy dropped to 3%, meaning up to 97% of positive results could be false positives. The ruling goes on to conclude that, based on the science they read, any PCR test using over 25 cycles is totally unreliable. Governments and private labs have been very tight-lipped about the exact number of cycles they run when PCR testing, but it is known to sometimes be as high as 45″

“It is the habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they would prefer not to examine” -Thucydides

*

Decolonization as envisioned by the United Nations is (in real effect) little more than a self-serving Western propaganda ploy; assuaging ego where there is in fact little wider social consciousness of what (and what has not) been accomplished. To achieve de facto (authentic) decolonization, to begin, this should require the decolonization of the psyche of those ‘indigenous’ populations educated into Western way of thinking. This would be no mean task!

When the colonizing powers ‘withdrew’ and ‘lip-serviced’ (should sound like political fellatio) ‘the right of self determination of peoples’ … they left intact unnatural colonial borders that in any case DID NOT respect the purported right of self-determination, rather put in place multiple Western infected national psyches within so-called ‘indigenous’ leadership determined to (more often than not) behave like Whitemen (Western European mentality.) This has further created numerous cases of social friction across the globe, particularly concerning so-called ‘minorities.’

The related ‘meme of democracy’ has accomplished the following few examples of too many examples to list in one short article:

The largest stateless ‘minority’ in the world (5,000,000 compared to ‘sovereign’ Montenegro’s 500,000), that is the Kurds, are in (varying degrees of) conflict with Iran, Iraq, Syria and (not least) Turkey, due to persisting colonial borders. This leaves the Kurd population open (across several vectors) to murderous geopolitical (read intelligence agency) manipulations in endless iterations (most recently by the USA & Israel.)

In the so-called ‘international law’ (a Western developed concept) Azerbaijan is allowed an Azerbaijani majority exclave, Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, separated by the territory of Armenia, but Armenia is NOT allowed an Armenian majority exclave, Nagorno-Karabakh, separated by the territory of Azerbaijan. Common sense calls this hypocrisy. Common people adhere to common sense and the Armenian common sense is cynically exploited in Ottoman imperial style geopolitical machinations:

So, what would be the point of common sense (a gift of our creator) in the view of those who propose to rule us? I doubt they could answer this question in any sensible (read honest) way for the fact there is no sensible or (especially) altruistic justification of the preceding. Any honest answer would have to take in account incompetence, greed & political-cultural narcissism (imperial arrogance) often prohibits the de facto right of self determination of peoples, any pretensions of decolonization at the United Nations notwithstanding.

In light of the preceding, just suppose (a laughable fantasy) the West were to take up Russia on an offer to repeat the plebiscite in Crimea with international observers; a plebiscite is the most democratic of all democratic principles. The obvious outcome would be (and why the ‘democratic’ West would never agree to this proposition) Crimeans would overwhelmingly (again) exercise their right of self determination to join the Russian Federation. Furthermore, the whole (majority ethnic Russian) East of Ukraine might then demand equal right to determine its own future and wellah, suddenly Putin’s Russian borders extend West to the Dnieper River. The Western states insistence Crimea remain a part of Ukraine is a case of the West maintaining a stance of ‘democracy for me, but not for thee.’

Meanwhile, the crude Spanish judicial system (dominated by judges aligned with the Popular Party, a political legacy of Franco) has jailed and continues to bring to trial those Catalan separatists who dared do what? They held a plebiscite (that most democratic of all democratic principles) to separate Catalonia from Spain (a state that has historically treated the Catalans as lackeys only fit to lick the Spanish boot.)

To keep this short, we’ll jump to Kosovo; where the Western states (NATO & the EU) has determined Serbia is not fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Albanians) on their own territory but the now purported (by the West) independent Kosovo is fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Serbs.) Never mind the inconvenient fact that recent Kosovo ‘leaders’ are being arrested and delivered to international tribunal for crimes against ethnic Serbs (includes organ harvesting), also not to mention the 250,000 Serbs driven from Kosovo in an ethnic cleansing pogrom following the NATO bombing of Serbia. Hey! Isn’t that just the sort of act the bombing was supposed to stop? NATO ‘just allowed’ that to happen when they’d grabbed control? Huh. Maybe that Albanian ‘majority’ wasn’t statistically big enough to justify an independent Kosovo (and secure Kosovo a ‘right’ to host Camp Bondsteel.)

All of this follows on a few historical facts overlooked by the Western propaganda machine; Eastern Orthodoxy’s majority Serbian population in the region of Srpska Krajina recently (90s Balkan Wars) ethnically cleansed from Catholic Croatia by “Operation Storm” (never mind the Serbs have been made the boogeyman for everything that went wrong with the breakup of Yugoslavia), as well the fact unnatural ethnic borders have been enforced in relation to Republik Srpska, ensuring there will be ongoing tensions within Bosnia on the border of Serbia and not least, the remnant Serb majority region in the North of Kosovo is denied their right of self determination to join with Serbia, ensuring perpetual inter-ethnic conflict that serves only to weaken the institutions of state via ongoing radicalization of both populations, Orthodox Christian Serb and Muslim Albanian. Europe couldn’t do a better job of promoting a war of civilizations if it had actually tried, if one were to presume it is mere incompetence derived from ego-narcissism has birthed this circumstance into the present. But maybe it is more than that, a weakened state with artificial borders is ‘low hanging fruit’ posing possibility of consolidating control over a region culturally tied to Russia (as well historically coveted by the Catholic headquarters at Rome.)

Finally, it must be noted that, similar to the Sioux Indians had founded their culture upon a spiritual relationship to the Black Hills of South Dakota from which they had been expelled, Serbia’s relationship to “Old Serbia” (Kosovo) is little different; but imperial ambition had seen the Serbs ethnically cleansed by the Albanians on multiple occasions, first under the ‘patronage’ of the Ottoman Turks, then the Albanians were backed in further pursuing pogroms against Serbs by the fascist Axis powers of World War II (similar to Croatian Ustasha persecution of Serbs during the war) and finally a coup de grace of sorts was delivered by communism under Tito, who forbade ethnic Serbs to return to their homes in Kosovo following 1945. [1]

The epilogue to all of this would be the colonizing of Serbia by the European Union at the point of a gun:

This book review is reproduced for my Australian readers, particularly, but is recommended for everybody. The simple fact this review is banned in Australia gives added credence to the exposé it covers; the excellent journalism of John Helmer debunking the MH-17 (state sponsored) disinformation campaign cooked up by liberal democracies in the geopolitical game demonizing Russia. Originally found at John Helmer’s site. Reproduced with permission.

By Evan Jones, Sydney
@bears_with

The MH17 was brought down over six years ago. John Helmer, with others, has compiled a book on the farce that has attended the pursuit of cause and culprits. Australia’s involvement is peculiarly both integral and marginal.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was brought down over Eastern Ukraine on 17 July 2014. All 298 people on board lost their lives – including 196 Dutch, 43 Malaysians and 38 Australian.

Overseen by the Dutch, a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) was established in August 2014, formally comprising personnel from the Netherlands. Ukraine, Australia and Belgium. Malaysia itself was not admitted to the JIT until late November, reputedly because of  its scepticism towards the Ukrainian version of the cause of the shoot-down and who was responsible.

Before anybody had inspected the site, that line was that Russia and/or pro-Russian rebels against Kiev did it. The weapon was a Buk ground-to-air missile, the launcher brought in from Russia and returned after the dirty deed.

The JIT investigation and Dutch court case is effectively a Dutch-Ukrainian affair. As Helmer et.al (henceforth Helmer) note, Ukraine possesses the  ‘right as a JIT member to veto what is investigated, what is disclosed, who to convict’ (Ch.6). Belgium  (4 nationals dead) is out of picture. Australia is both inside and outside the tent.

Site material reclaimed is partial, and evidence is spotty. Ukrainian air traffic control data have not been released. However, two forms of evidence, Australian-linked, appears to be atypically decisive, at least in a negative sense.

Helmer (Ch.6): ‘Two reports by Australian coronial investigators, David Ranson, a pathologist from the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM) and Iain West, deputy coroner for the state of Victoria, have revealed the cause of death of the victims, ruling out shrapnel from an exploding Buk missile warhead. The first Ranson-West report, released in November 2014, [is outlined] here. A second report, eight pages in length and written by Ranson, followed a month later. This was sent to the Victorian State Coroner, Judge Ian Gray. …

‘To date, the consensus identification of the external blast source is a point to the left of the aircraft, forward of the left wing. … The record by [Dutch pathologist George] Maat’s Australian team members at [Dutch military base] Hilversum is that no Buk detonation could have taken place without filling the bodies of passengers on the left (port), forward side of the cabin, but the evidence of the bodies shows this didn’t happen.’

The Ranson report was released to victims’ families, discussed with the Australian Federal Police, and to select others. Ranson and West also spoke on the matter at the Asia-Pacific Coroners Society Conference in Melbourne on 14 November. However the material has subsequently been classified. Why?

The sister of the Malaysian MH17 pilot went to Halversum to inspect her brother’s body. She claimed that (Ch.8) ‘she had seen a film of his body and had been told by investigators there were no shrapnel or bullet wounds’. Her response was deflected in the Dutch media.

The Abbott government was in place. Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had a priori opinions on whodunnit (Chs.8 & 9). In early November, Abbott claimed: ‘“We were given very strong security advice [that is, from the Americans] in the days following the atrocity as to the type of weapon, as to the place from where the weapon was fired and as to the likely prominence of the weapon and there’s been nothing since then to question that original security advice.”’

Their interests ran contrary to the information that Coroner Gray had in his possession. Abbott, titular Rhodes Scholar, had trouble reconciling his will, impetuous, with the forensic evidence produced by Australian specialists.

According to former Army officer James Brown in 2016, Abbott had initially offered to send Australian troops to control the crash site. Brown is Malcolm Turnbull’s son-in-law and apparent conduit for Turnbull’s exposé of Cabinet activity. Abbott then willingly brought Australia into an American-hatched idea to send Dutch and Australian troops (of which 3,000) into Eastern Ukraine (Ch.18), with logistic support from others. Germany said it’s not on; the Dutch then said it’s unrealistic. But Abbott had the Australian military and security establishment in knots even after the potential European partners had pulled the plug.

Malcolm Turnbull became Prime Minister in September 2015, bringing his own brand of ambiguity to the fog. Turnbull promised the victims’ families action to find and prosecute those responsible, wanted to blame the Russians, yet was more circumspect than Abbott. Turnbull declined to issue certification as to the crash’s cause that would open the way for the Australian government to pay compensation to the families under the Supporting Australian Victims of Terrorism Overseas Act.

There was another source of dissidence from Australian specialists. The Dutch Safety Board, officially responsible for investigations, had quickly (with Ukrainian and American governments’ support) attributed the aircraft’s demise to a Buk missile. Yet the senior figure in the Australian contingent, the AFP’s Detective Superintendent Andrew Donoghue, urged caution. Helmer notes (Ch.14), citing Donoghue before a Victorian Coroners Court hearing 15 December 2015, ‘“initial information that the aircraft was shot down by a [Buk] surface to air missile” did not meet the Australian or international standard of evidence’.

In court, the forensic pathologist repeated conclusions contained in his late 2014 reports that no ‘distinctive pre-formed’ metal fragments had been found in the two CT scans of the Australian victim bodies.

Donoghue also noted that, courtesy of secret Australian government negotiations with Novorussian leaders, his Australian team had belatedly gained access to the crash site, in the face of Ukrainian government-enforced restrictions. Donoghue reported that some potential witnesses who had come forward refused to testify unless provided protection from Kiev reprisals.

Bizarrely, Deputy Coroner West’s judgment defied the evidence before him from Donoghue and Ranson, claiming that the Dutch Safety Board had it right in determining that a Russian Buk missile had caused the MH17’s destruction. This in spite of the fact that West’s name is attached to the first Ranson report of November 2014 which (with the second December report) notes the absence of metal fragments in the bodies that a Buk missile warhead would have produced.

In March 2017, then Attorney General George Brandis delivered to Prime Minister Turnbull advice that there remains (Helmer) ‘insufficient evidence of what and who caused the MH17 crash to meet the Australian statutory test of a terrorist act’ (Ch.21). Apart from attribution of guilt to culprits, there is the necessity to prove malicious intent.

Several days previously, the Ukrainian government (Helmer) ‘had applied to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to convict Russia of financing, arming and aiding terrorist acts, including the destruction of MH17’. Australian legal opinion thus undermined the Ukrainian government’s move, as well as the Joint Investigation Team’s renewed claim in September 2016 (Ch.18) that the Russians and the Ukrainian rebels reliant on them were responsible. The Dutch and Ukrainians aren’t listening.

Yet Turnbull continued to publicly blame Russia. On 5 March, the Sydney Morning Herald reported Turnbull, in the context of a stoush with Senator Pauline Hanson, thus:

‘But Mr Turnbull said there was no doubt Russia was involved in the 2014 “murder”. “Vladimir Putin’s Russia is subject to international sanctions, to which Australia is a part, because of his conduct in shooting down the MH17 airliner in which 38 Australians were killed. Let’s not forget that,” he said. “That was a shocking international crime. Vladimir Putin’s Russia is not, and should not be, an object of admiration in any respect.”’

Turnbull was wearing two hats – one as lawyer, the other as politician.

Part Three of Helmer’s book (‘The standard of proof’) is devoted to the Dutch prosecutor’s absence of proof. Part Four is devoted to the trial of four accused individuals – three Russians and a Ukrainian – amidst disdain for the absence of proof, involving  a travesty of Dutch law itself.

The farcical character of the proceedings has been ignored in the Australian media. The  Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) is representative.

The  SMH did report (8  March 2020) the disgust of the Russian Ambassador to Australia at the lack of evidence for the ‘official’ accusations of Russian guilt.

The  SMH also gave voice to one Jerry Skinner (27  May 2018), an American lawyer, flamboyantly seeking victim family clients to sue first Malaysia then the innately evil Russians for their murderous act. Skinner claims to have ‘helped negotiate $2.7 billion from the Libyan government to compensate families  of victims of the Lockerbie air disaster’. Given that the Libyans were not responsible for this atrocity (see Helmer’s Ch.25), Skinner’s talents are evidently remarkable. Helmer deals with Skinner and his litigious law firm in Chs.16 & 23.

The bulk of  SMH coverage of the MH17 crash and the investigatory and legal aftermath has been carried by successive London-based correspondents Nick Miller  and Bevan Shields. Miller and Shields have dutifully repeated the Western correct line without deviation.

What and who to believe? The detached Australian might ask, how could Dutch authorities be engaged in skulduggery? Aren’t the Dutch a decent and progressive people?

Well not quite. As is noted of the MH17 book’s co-author: Max van der Werff, he ‘began his career as a citizen journalist investigating the torture of civilians by the Dutch colonial administration during the Indonesian war for independence’.

As legal academic  Ramses Wessels reported  in 2008, the Netherlands opportunistically abandoned its previous neutrality in joining NATO in 1949. Wessels notes: ‘During the Cold War, the Netherlands proved  to be an active and loyal member of the Alliance, which allowed for a much larger role in international affairs than its size would justify.’ Ah, punching above their weight – where have we heard that before?

The Netherlands continues its allegiance to what has become, following the fall of the Soviet Union, a transparently criminal organisation.

As for the economy, the opportunistic Netherlands has probably been the second biggest beneficiary after Germany of the European Union and its exploitative hierarchy. Not content with its perennial trade surplus, the Netherlands has turned itself into a tax  haven at the heart of the EU (documented meticulously by Gabriel Zucman), that status becoming particularly attractive to trans-border European companies (such as Airbus and Peugeot/Fiat).

In short, predictably, the Netherlands has no principles, only interests. And thus it is with the MH17 show trial.

In the meantime, the victims’ families are treated as mere pawns in a brutal revamping of the Cold War, with the post-coup Ukraine dictating terms via the seemingly respectable Dutch court system. It is a phenomenon beneath contempt. You’ll have to read Helmer et.al because you won’t read about it in the Australian MSM.

So, Navalny’s Soros worshiping clique is asserting he has been poisoned. Immediately a plane is dispatched from Germany to snatch his body (lingering with a bit of inconvenient life) or better said, ‘rescue’ a gravely ill man from the nefarious Russian state; invoking the ghosts of Litvinenko, Nemtsov (oops, he was shot, not poisoned), and Skripal.

What do all of the above share in common?

1) None of them were in any sense a threat to Putin or the Russian state, in short, all of them had either outlived their usefulness (Litvinenko, Skripal) or never lived up to the expectations (Nemtsov, Navalny) of the West’s propaganda machine (read manipulations by foreign intelligence agencies.)

2) All of them become more useful to the West’s propaganda machine when dead, rather than appearing increasingly impotent, or irrelevant, while alive. How? Their deaths can be blamed on EVIL PUTIN!

Now, before we delve into the unthinkable, let’s (merely for the sake of argument) all rollover and assume Navalny has been poisoned. But not necessarily by the Russian state.

What?! If you have no conscience or soul (a prime ‘talent’ for those waging clandestine warfare via assassinations on behalf of the state) or simply ‘believe’ a wrong can be made into a right (along the lines of thinking ‘Navalny will never pull a color revolution off in Russia, but if Putin ‘poisons’ him, and this helped the West, no doubt he’d understand’ (you know, the future debriefing of Navalny in a WASP/Catholic chapter of Heaven that more or less excludes the Orthodox albeit with ‘chosen’ Soros sponsored exceptions.)

To demonstrate the pure hypocrisy of the West pointing to Putin and the ‘Russian regime’ as ‘poisoners’ one need look no farther than Western intelligence agencies own enraged idiots that cannot keep their mouths shut, this ‘gem’ of an example came in the wake of the Snowden revelations:

“…a US Army Intelligence Officer stated to Buzzfeed: “I think if we had the chance, we would end it very quickly.” [USA intelligence would like to find Snowden] “Just casually walking on the streets of Moscow, coming back from buying his groceries. Going back to his flat and he is casually poked by a passerby. He thinks nothing of it at the time starts to feel a little woozy and thinks it’s a parasite from the local water. He goes home very innocently and next thing you know he dies in the shower.” [1]

Now, if perennial color revolution non-threat Navalny risks looking ultimately impotent (he’d been at it too long with too little result) and would serve the interests of empire better if suddenly dead, and indeed he had been poisoned, probably the Russian state should be the last suspect. So, if it wasn’t Putin, who was it? News for you Kira Yarmysh, Ivan Zhdanov, Leonid Volkov, Cinema for Peace, Pussy Riot and countless other manipulated  stooges, chances are that Navalny, if actually poisoned, was hit by Western intelligence for the fact he was ineffective and therefor ‘transitioned’ from a useless idiot into a useful dead idiot. That thought brings up a bit of recent news:

“A minister has revealed real James Bonds can now eliminate enemies in countries other than war zones.

“Defence minister Annabel Goldie was asked if UK agents target foes “located in non-belligerent states”

“She replied: “The Government may draw on wide a range of tools including lethal force where there is no other effective option” [2]

There you go; United Kingdom had just gone on record as authorizing its intelligence agencies to carry out assassinations in Russia (among other countries.) Meanwhile Putin doesn’t need (or want) the negative publicity of another murder falsely pinned on his ‘regime’, for ‘edification’ in these matters, check out the alternative Skripal narratives, there’s plenty of credible investigators with sites proposing and/or developing evidence refuting the official line. [3], [4], [5], [6]

News for all of you Soros wannabe color revolutionaries, if you think Bernard Émié, Alex Younger, Gina Haspel, Bruno Kahl, Yossi Cohen, or any of the rest of the Western intelligence heads, actually care so much as a rat’s ass about people like Navalny, you’re as dumb as anything has ever set foot in God’s creation. If Navalny were convertible from a color revolution useless idiot to a Western intelligence propaganda operation’s useful dead idiot, to better serve the agenda of Western intelligence, that’s exactly what he’d be, a useful dead idiot. It is not only perfectly plausible that’s what happened to Litvinenko, Skripal, and if poisoned, now Navalny, it is actually far more likely Western intelligence did it than any likelihood these morons had been hit by the Russian state.

“The intelligence services of the United States and Russia are essentially at war” -Dmitri Trenin, Colonel, GRU (retired)

There is little reason to believe Covid 19 would not be subject to the intelligence agency driven propaganda wars between the Western democracies and Russia & China. For those who’ve studied the Western propaganda method, it is clear the Edward Bernays’ ideal has triumphed on behalf of corporate boardrooms. In short, ‘public relations’ (media) is suborned to the sole benefit of the capital/corporate model. Western intelligence has become heavily invested in preserving what the USA calls its ‘vital national interests’, a euphemism for Western corporate control of the world’s resources and markets. All of this plays in the model envisioned by Bernays (pervasive lying to the public while incorporating principles of psychology), refined and applied to the modern media with a robust assist from the USA’s Central Intelligence (to which the NATO and European states intelligence agencies are practically feudal vassals.) From Carl Bernstein’s “CIA and the Media” in 1977, to the more recent confession of Udo Ulfkotte in his 2014 book “Bought Journalists: How Politicians, Intelligence Agencies and High Finance Control Germany’s Mass Media”, it is demonstrated Western media has (for many decades) been taking prepared script from Central Intelligence and ‘friends.’ No matter the light Bernstein (who folded back into mainstream, Wikipedia avoids directing readers to his 1977 work) or Ulfkotte (who found his audience in the German right) might be cast in now, both parties are/were veteran mainstream media personalities and their claims are credible.

Russian propaganda (I’ve not studied the Chinese method), on the other hand, recognizes Western media is so corrupt, the Russians need only more or less stick to the facts when reporting, to convince intelligent people their news platform is the superior model and ‘go to’ source to discover what is actually happening. Where the story might have ‘inconveniences’ that must be dealt with, the preferred Russian method is to initiate what I call ‘the flip’ (related to ‘lies by omission.’) Misleading, under-reporting is the result. Time to time, this becomes a quite notable event, where the Russian propaganda method skews things along (somewhat goes along with) the Western story-line; to neutralize the demonization employed by the Western intelligence (modified Bernays) model. When the Russians run with a Western propaganda lie, in order to ‘flip’ it, it usually is a ‘whopper’ (a really big lie.) A contemporary example of this would be the Russians allowing the patently fraudulent Dutch Buk missile story to gain traction at Sputnik & RT because the Russians have solid evidence that particular missile was in the possession of Ukraine when MH 17 was downed. That the Ukrainians (independently of the MH 17 downing) exploded that missile to create false evidence and blame Russia is not a story (argument) the Russians are interested in. The Russian propaganda approach (flip) is ‘if you want to claim that missile brought down MH 17, fine, we have the original Soviet era paperwork showing Ukraine possessed it’ (never mind all parties know it was a Ukrainian Air Force SU 25 combat jet brought down the civilian passenger plane.)

With the Covid 19 epidemic, there may be emerging evidence of a similar approach; where Russia to now has more or less played along with the West’s propaganda game (and ‘flipped’ it with high profile technical & humanitarian aid, e.g. to Italy) concerning the Covid epidemic rather than open up to be overtly demonized. But now Sweden and a particular (very well accredited) Russian virologist/geneticist may have thrown a bit of a monkey wrench into the propaganda machine’s gears. Follows is the Russian online magazine Izvestia interview that goes counter to all of the hysteria we see generated elsewhere. So, what are the real facts? Will there be a second Covid 19 wave? Do people lose their Covid immunity? These are valid questions.

**

Izvestia: Based on the fact that 20% of people with antibodies to coronavirus were officially recorded in Moscow, we can safely assume that 40-60% of the capital’s residents already have immunity to it, Pavel Volchkov, head of the MIPT genomic engineering laboratory, told Izvestia in an exclusive interview. This means that there will be no second wave of morbidity in the capital, the expert is sure. In addition, the virologist shared his views on exactly how the COVID-19 pandemic began. He is leaning towards the laboratory-origin version of SARS-CoV-2.

Izvestia: Pavel Yuryevich, from your point of view, how many people in Moscow already have immunity to SARS-CoV-2?

Volchkov : Recently, an article was published by Swedish scientists who conducted a study of T-cell immunity (“Sustainable T-cell immunity in recovering patients with the asymptomatic COVID-19 course”), the results of which I personally had long been waiting for. They analyzed a large number of biological samples by conducting an expensive ELISPOT analysis (Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSpot – T-cell detection method). It turned out that even those who did not have IgG antibodies had T-cell immunity. And there are two to three times more such people in the population than those with antibodies.

Izvestia: What does it mean?

Volchkov: If in Moscow [it is] officially recorded 20% of people with high titers of IgG antibodies, then you can safely add another 20-40% to this figure. It turns out that about half of Moscow residents are immune to coronavirus. They will not get sick anymore.

Izvestia: Recently, articles appeared that showed that antibodies are lost …

Volchkov: And that’s fine. They must be lost. This always happens. There is a half-life of IgG, IgM, IgA antibodies. Their amount in the blood begins to fall six months to a year after meeting with the infection. There are so few of them that this amount cannot be detected by any test. What is the purpose of antibodies? Here the virus flew into the respiratory tract, infected a group of cells, created a small local focus (with a mild course of the disease). The immune system recognized these cells and localized them – it is like the city of Wuhan was closed in China. It turns out that a large number of antibodies do not seem to exist, but the immunity has formed and worked. However, it is concentrated in T- and B-memory cells. When the infection again is exposed to a person, the immune system recognizes it, the cells will begin to produce antibodies.

Izvestia: Does it make sense then to test for IgG antibodies?

Volchkov: It does. This test is cheap and gives us a cutoff. This cut-off now is 20%. So we can multiply this amount by two to three times. It’s hard to say the exact number, for this you need to conduct a large-scale study using expensive ELISPOT analysis, as the Swedes did.

Izvestia: Is it possible to say that the ‘herd’ immunity that everyone has been talking about for so long has already taken shape in Moscow?

Volchkov: For the multi-million population city, today’s figures in the region of 700 new infected per day indicate that it has formed. If we really had only 20% of the residents with immunity, then with open restaurants and shops, we would expect a much larger number of infected people.

Izvestia: But after all, on this figure (+700 people per day) you can maintain for a long time. Or not? What is your prediction?

Volchkov: I think this figure will now begin to decline and will reach zero at the end of August. It is clear that in the capital for a long time there will be imported cases from regions that belatedly began to ‘pick up’ the coronavirus.

Izvestia: That is, the second wave will not happen?

Volchkov: For Moscow, it is already impossible. Now people who have formed natural immunity in the capital are 40-60%. If the dynamics continues, their number will increase by the end of August to 80–90%.

Izvestia: And in other cities of Russia, the second wave is possible?

Volchkov: Only in those that are well insulated and where there is an extremely low level of infection. In big cities, definitely not. If you have already burned the grass, then the burned-out areas cannot be ignited again. Do you know how firefighters fight fire? They take and burn the front of the strip to stop the fire. This strip is our buffer immunity.

Izvestia: But what about the fact that the virus mutates and the body may simply not recognize it?

Volchkov: In any case, it does not mutate very quickly. Even the seasonal flu virus needs several years to re-infect you. And then in the event that part of its segments, and the flu has eight, will be re-sorted, that is, replaced by parts from another influenza virus. Coronavirus is single-segment – it cannot change that way.

Izvestia: But can it recombine?

Volchkov: Maybe. But this event is more rare. It must take at least a couple of years for it to be able to return and cause you some kind of pathology. And still it will not be comparable to the first time. The immune system at least somehow recognizes it, which means it [the immunity] will work. A secondary immune response will develop.

Izvestia: The war of supporters of the natural and artificial origin of the coronavirus continues on the pages of the media, on social networks and blogs. What can you say at the moment when so many articles about its structure have been published?

Volchkov: I came to the conclusion that the probability of the virus overcoming the inter-species barrier without human help [accidental eating of a bat carrier SARS-CoV-2] is significantly less than the one that it had help. By help, I mean prolonged cultivation of the virus in the laboratory, the introduction of amino acid modifications, experiments to infect human cells if possible. All this is described in the famous article of 2015 [Nature magazine, November 9, 2015]. In favor of this hypothesis is also the location of the city of Wuhan.

Izvestia: How is that in your thinking?

Volchkov: Wuhan is located in the very center of China. Bats are not found there. They live in the south, in Yunnan, on the border with Vietnam. It was there that they were caught to isolate new coronaviruses, which are now stored in the collection of the Wuhan laboratory. Although theoretically it can be assumed that they were brought thousands of kilometers to eat.

Izvestia: But it is possible?

Volchkov: Yes, perhaps. But in practice, traditional cuisine is considered traditional because its menu contains local species of animals. If the virus ‘jumped’ onto a person when it was eaten, it would be found in Yunnan, on the border with Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar. From there the epidemic would have spread.

Izvestia: Speaking about the origin of SARS-CoV-2, you can only consider probabilities?

Volchkov: I’m afraid so. In the [genome] sequence it is not written: ‘I am made synthetically.’ There are no obvious ‘donkey ears’ – traces of a genetic engineering structure. But there is a hint of it. This is the famous furin insert, about which much has already been said.

Izvestia: But could it find itself in the genome of the virus during recombination?”

Volchkov: It could. However, the likelihood of this event greatly increases, provided that you create thousands of amino acid mutations. And the fact that American and Chinese scientists did this is proved by the 2015 article. If you look at the publications of these scientific groups, it becomes clear that they are very active, have worked with these viruses for a long time. In addition, the Chinese have a large library of coronaviruses, where the most genetically close sample of RatG13 has been discovered. It was brought to the Wuhan Institute of Virology from Yunnan in 2013. For seven years, when it was cultivated, passivated, it could naturally acquire a large number of mutations. In addition, science has made great progress in this regard over the past 10 years. We live in an era of synthetic biology, when you can synthesize some parts de novo, and then ensure a seamless insertion of such a synthetic part into the genome.

Izvestia: That is, 10 years ago, you would definitely say, looking at the genome, what is inserted there?

Volchkov: Exactly. And now there are technologies of extended genetic synthesis, when thousands of nucleotides can be synthesized. You simply send the letter sequence to a special company that synthesizes it and sends it back. The possibilities are huge now. In this way, whole libraries of new coronaviruses can be generated. Suppose there are 10 million of them there. And then you can choose the most promising one from them, assemble it using the reverse genetics method and test for the ability to infect human cells.

Izvestia: That is, from your point of view, the probability that the virus has leaked from the laboratory is quite high?

Volchkov: Yes. An argument in this favor is also that coronaviruses were not considered particularly dangerous for some time. And it was possible to work with them at the second level of protection [there are four of them, the third and fourth levels, according to the American classification, are especially dangerous. – Izvestia]. Actually, this is understandable, because the initially isolated viruses could not pass from an animal to a person to overcome the inter-species barrier and, accordingly, from person to person.

Izvestia: That is exactly what was affirmed at the very beginning of the pandemic …

Volchkov: At the second level of protection, it could easily fly out and infect the scientist. And what’s important: it’s impossible to see right away. The funny thing is that the one who brought this virus out of the laboratory did not even understand that they did it. And still may not understand to now.

An aside: insofar as freedom of press is concerned, something so straightforward with counter-narrative as the preceding interview in what amounts to Russian ‘mainstream’ news would NEVER pass muster and go to press in the Western corporate media.

This article first appeared at Fort Russ News

CIA, Google, Crowdstrike & the DNC non-hack

I’d noticed on 8 February that Russian news (Sputnik) had sucked up a propaganda misdirection fed to the (more usually) intrepid John Solomon, raising a question, why this story now? That Manafort’s ‘Black Ledger’ was a forgery is old news. The only thing new here is, the suggested idea the ‘Black Ledger’ might have ‘Made in Ukraine’ stamped somewhere on it in fine print:

[Rick Gates] “account … raises the possibility that someone fabricated the document in Ukraine […] its uncertain origins raise troubling questions about election meddling and what constitutes real evidence worthy of starting an American investigation” [1], [2]

Excuse me, but this is like trying to conceal Frankenstein’s sutures with a band-aid. Where Solomon has been misdirected to in regards to Ukraine election meddling, the so-called Manafort ‘Black Ledger’, is penny-ante poker by comparison to what has been spread all over the recent news on the subject of Ukraine and election meddling: President Trump’s call to Ukrainian President Zelensky requesting investigation into CrowdStrike:

CrowdStrike - 1

^ All of the top Google search results (and for pages after) are about Trump hitting up Zelensky to investigate a ‘debunked conspiracy theory.’ But wait a minute. When the top result is the New York Times demanding we all ignore a story as ‘fake news’, it’d be more than intuitive to look into the matter deeper. Especially when google’s habit in uncomfortable matters (to the status quo) is burying opposed results, via so-called ‘search engine optimization’, there’s a dark side to this, as well recalling Tulsi Gabbard’s lawsuit. [3], [4]

To begin, we have a look at who really does not want you looking into the CrowdStrike story: That would be Google. Google began as a Central Intelligence Agency funded start-up:

“Seed-funded by the NSA and CIA, Google was merely the first among a plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘information superiority’” 

“The origins of this ingenious strategy trace back to a secret Pentagon-sponsored group, that for the last two decades has functioned as a bridge between the US government and elites across the business, industry, finance, corporate, and media sectors. The group has allowed some of the most powerful special interests in corporate America to systematically circumvent democratic accountability and the rule of law to influence government policies, as well as public opinion in the US and around the world” [5], [6]

By now, google is absolutely one of the intelligence world’s ‘big boys’ and where are they putting their (2015) money?

“Security startup Crowdstrike is expected to announce a $100 million investment from Google Capital next week, a person close to the company told Business Insider, although this source did not reveal the valuation.
CrowdStrike was founded by two ex-McAfee execs in 2011. It offers a cloud tool that helps governments and enterprises discover and stop an attack as it it occurring” [7]

Humnn, who did Business Insider fail to name?

Alperovitch - 1

The Business Insider article excerpt (at [7], preceding the illustration) fails to name CrowdStrike’s co-founding executive, Dimitry Alperovich, who happens to be an anti-Putin Yeltsen era Russian expat (moved to the USA in his early teens) within a present day web that ties to Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, Hillary Clinton, Burisma (the Bidens’ thing), an Adam Schiff staffer (!), Robert Mueller (a long time CIA asset, notable for framing Libya for Lockerbie and sandbagging the BCCI money laundering investigation into the CIA’s Iran Contra arms and narcotics trafficking), and is a fellow at the Atlantic Council (the organized Atlanticist lobby, these days mostly a Putin-bashing club.) [8], [9], [10], [11], [12], [13]

Well, what to do with all of that?

$100 million in 2015 from CIA mega-asset Google (run by a super Clinton fan) to an Atlantic Council Fellow/cyber security expert tied to a Ukrainian billionaire & Burisma, with the Clintons & Bidens stirred into the mix and wellah, less than a year later Putin hacked the DNC which is actually a fairy tale. [14], [15], [16], [17]

Recalling this newsworthy rant begins with John Solomon calling for initiating an American investigation into the old news about Manafort and the fake ‘Black Ledger’ that had possibly been initiated in Ukraine and Sputnik getting a case of hot pants over the story, one wonders where Solomon believes any such investigation might go. The direction Mueller took the Lockerbie investigation when framing Libya? The direction Mueller took the BCCI investigation when protecting CIA Iran-Contra arms and narcotics trafficking? Mueller refusing to act on a mountain of evidence amassed by law enforcement naming Enrique Prado as a serial killer for a drug cartel because Prado was also a high ranking CIA officer? The direction Mueller took the Russiagate investigation when he took CrowdStrike’s word as gospel and never seriously investigated ‘the Russians did it’ DNC mails hack story? All of these stories wrap up under the CIA’s erstwhile Poppa Bush (41) and now Trump’s Attorney General William Barr. Oops. It follows, Trump’s real problem with begging anywhere/everywhere for an investigation into CrowdStrike just might be someone who works for him.

2019 had been unremarkable for the fact of pervasive political lying continues to unfold as though there could never be any ‘awakening’ (nothing changes.) The CIA initiated Mueller ‘special counsel’ caper pits one set of liars off another set of liars as though truth were anti-evolutionary in the American political construct. The sad fact is, that’s the truth of the matter; political lies have been part and parcel of the American social construct since the beginning, recalling Thomas Paine:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime”

Try as one might, there is no better description of Congress on either side of the aisle to be found by this reporter in Congress’ ongoing provocations of Russia. Congress is the abscess at the center of the infection, it matters not where the infection began; it is the Congress appropriates the money applied to the insanity of it all. Whether the information operations (PsyOps) demonizing Russia, the intelligence agencies related lying through their teeth about the disposition of certain events having to do with USA elections, or the Pentagon painting a dire picture of an ‘aggressive Russia’ requiring historic outlay of money (even as the USA military muppet NATO has marched itself to Russia’s borders, deploys permanent bases and engages in offensive war games), and, of course, military industrial lobbyists providing what can only be described as a kickback when one recalls it is prior appropriations is the source of the money that corporations return to Congress. In other words, prior contracts awarded on a profit basis are what enable corporations to send lobbyists to convince future Pentagon contracts should be awarded in what amounts to a ‘wine & dine’ feeding frenzy of cannibal maggots [1]

2018_lobbyist_$ - 1

Congress appropriates, Pentagon awards, corporate profits fund lobbyists in endless cycle. What is remarkable is how cheaply our congressmen are bought; considering the outlay in lobbyist money compared to the amount of maggot infested ‘bacon’ returned:

“Major components of the NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act] were a $635 billion allocation for Department of Defense and Department of Energy national security programs, $71.5 billion for overseas contingency operations (OCO, or fighting in foreign wars) and $5.3 billion to repair damage caused by extreme weather and natural disasters. The Defense Department’s full fiscal year 2020 budget totals $738 billion, an increase of $22 billion ($3.1%) year over year” [2]

Creating boogeymen is essential to keep this cycle alive. In this case, the NDAA also pumping 300 million for Ukraine’s military into this following legacy that had finally devolved to alliance with the Nazi’s in WWII (Stephan Bandera’s SS Galician Nazi army division) eventually leading to these same Nazis taking control of Ukraine in 2014 is not going to be appreciated by the Russians:

“The aim of the Austrian [Austro-Hungarian Empire’s] policy was to forever sever the internal ties between the Rusyn elite and the common Russian culture. For this purpose, for more than half a century considerable funds from the State budget were constantly allocated for printing publications preaching hatred towards Russia and artificially created Ukrainian nationalism. Not only national teachers, but also all the representatives of the intellectuals who were in direct contact with the population: doctors, agronomists, veterinarians, and others, were taught in the anti-Russian spirit using State grants.

“The refusal of the Russian self-identification became an obligatory condition for acceptance for public service, which also included educational institutions of all levels – from elementary schools to universities. And the fight against “Moscowphiles” was set as the main task for all the numerous Austrian State apparatus in Galicia” [today’s Western Ukraine] [3], [4]

And so it is, the USA Congress’ NDAA for 2020 includes pumping 300 million into exploiting a 200 years ongoing effort of Western empire, over several incarnations, to create instability, hostility and Russophobe enemies within Russia’s Western border regions, through the purposeful alienation of what had been Russia’s common cultural entities, and this is construed to be “countering Russian aggression.”

This incredible deceit or ‘subscribing professional belief to things he does not believe’ must, of course, be attended by information operations constituting what is in fact a manifestation of ‘the commission of every other crime.”

In this regard we enter 2020 with the ‘impeachment’ drama manifesting liars in every direction one looks, there is no single clean avenue to be found, whether in America’s Democrats, Republicans, mainstream or alternative media, the related EU & NATO nations’ political and information organs or ‘adversarial’ Russia itself. Of the more lying circumstance than this writer cares to note here, one circumstance is selected to illustrate an aggregate deceit of monstrous proportion, the impeachment relationship to the Russian ‘hack’ of the 2016 election.

 “who was at worst a Russian spy and at best a Russian stooge” ? [5]

As things turn out (in what can only be a damage control scramble), Carter Page was actually a CIA asset framed by an FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, when the FBI’s ‘Russiagate’ star chamber applied for FISA Court rubber stamp on a secret spying warrant. IF one CAN believe that, on its’ face it would seem the FBI screwed a CIA attempt to use the Trump campaign to penetrate the Kremlin, the complete reverse of Russians using the Trump campaign’s ‘collusion’ to penetrate the USA political establishment. Oh my.

It was only two short years previous, ‘Shifty Schiff’ (based on the so-called ‘Steele Dossier’) had demanded to know whether Page had met with “Kremlin linked professor” Joseph Mifsud and that’s where things get interesting. [6]

Joseph Mifsud’s lawyer has stated Misfud “was being directed, had long worked for Western intelligence, that he was being directed specifically, that he was asked to connect George Papadopoulos to Russia, meaning it was an operation, some form of an intelligence operation. That was his lawyer’s own words for this. If that’s the case, it means the flashpoint for starting this whole investigation was in fact manufactured from the beginning” [7]

The choice of words “western intelligence” is a little ambiguous but considering the ‘Steele Dossier’ had been ‘made in UK’, moving just a bit further on, it is clearly Her Majesty’s boogers are to be found in this recipe of ‘spook soup.’

“Over the last few months, Professor Joseph Mifsud has become a feather in the cap for those pushing the Trump-Russia narrative. He is characterized as a “Russian” intelligence asset in mainstream press, despite his declarations to the contrary. However, evidence has surfaced that suggests Mifsud was anything but a Russian spy, and may have actually worked for British intelligence. This new evidence culminates in the ground-breaking conclusion that the UK and its intelligence apparatus may be responsible for the invention of key pillars of the Trump-Russia scandal” [8]

So, we have  a second one hundred eighty degrees reversal, following on Carter Page had been a CIA (not Russian) asset, now we discover “Kremlin linked professor” Joseph Mifsud, more likely than not, worked for the British intelligence services. I mean, man, what’s to do with that?

Well, any half competent investigator should be able to hit a home run, batting right handed, over the left field fence, with what comes next.

The entire butt-load of lies the ‘Russiagate’ rests on, pivots on the accusation it was Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and this is presumed to be the material Mifsud alluded to when he informed George Papadopoulos the Russians had dirt on the Clinton campaign. Papadopoulos repeated this to an Australian ambassador, and in what appears to have been a set-up, the ambassador trotted the information to American authorities and all of this supposedly buttressed the out & out fake “Steele Dossier” that should have sunk the Trump campaign for POTUS. But it not only didn’t work, but because it didn’t work, it can’t be made to go away. That aspect is kindergarten forensic science.

What appears may have happened is, would be something like this: the deep state Clintonista faction backing Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan didn’t have the pull needed within his own (historically arch-conservative) agency to pull off the hit job on Trump’s campaign on behalf of the neoliberals so Brennan enlisted the British in what became a cellularized-hybrid operation (British intel x Brennan’s neoliberal cell.) Meanwhile (the promptly assassinated) Seth Rich had taken the DNC mails out of that organization’s server on a memory stick and sold the material to WikiLeaks (likely ‘facilitated’ by MOSSAD, Trump/Pence has been an Israeli wet dream.) [9]

Alerted to the DNC mails heist, subsequently, the ‘Russian Hack’ had been concocted by the neoliberals in British intelligence and handed to the Clintonistas at the FBI who colluded with CrowdStrike in the invention of Guccifer 2.0 but this story is too hot to let out of the bag because if it breaks open, the collateral damage would not only be widely geopolitical but could possibly result in a very few lonely lampposts in DC, the entire congress has been in the business of promoting this lie. And that is almost certainly why the pivotal but vanished Joseph Mifsud had to be made to ‘go away’ as a witness. [10]

Now, take a deep breath and consider this next: William Barr is a longtime CIA asset who’d actually worked for the agency in his early career and is notable for two events in his first stint as Attorney General (for career CIA operative George H.W. Bush), working to contain the Iran Contra debacle (inclusive of recommending pardons for Poindexter et al) but more importantly, crushing (includes assassination) investigation into the ‘Boys Town’ pedophilia scandal that led directly to the White House. This second instance no longer seems a far-fetched accusation in light of the recent Jeffery Epstein ‘expiration.’ [11], [12]

Bush41-call-boys

It follows, not only is long time CIA asset William Barr (damage control expert) engaged in ‘re-misdirecting’ the entire false narrative, Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s big mouth indicates this ‘re-misdirection’ is intended to frame the Ukrainians for framing the Russians on behalf of Brennan; in place of what had actually been a framing of the Russians by Brennan’s neoliberal faction in concert with British intelligence. This recent angle includes blackmailing Wikileaks into supporting the new false narrative, Wikileaks plays ball or Assange is buried. As well, the British would be badly burned if the actuality were known and no one knows where and how it all morphs from the end of 2019; in the warring factions contest. That’s the world of spooks. [13], [14]

So, what’s up with the Russian end in all of this? They probably don’t know what to do. As geopolitically unstable the entire business is, unwinding it, engineering the ‘Russiagate’ facts into the open, would be even more destabilizing. Then, there is a complicating factor where Russian propaganda has become deeply invested in creating a mythology of ‘Assange the crucified truth-teller’ when ‘flipping’ the Western propaganda narrative back onto itself. [15], [16]

Likely the Russians would be ok with ‘re-framing’ the false narrative onto the Nazis in Ukraine and the conservative faction at CIA recognizes (perhaps has even been communicated) this. That ‘truth telling’ Wikileaks has never openly acknowledged the facts surrounding Seth Rich would seem to play to what should be Russian concerns (and brings into question Wikileaks associate Craig Murray’s .ru email address, I’d put the full address here but that’d be opening to a ‘doxing’ accusation.) [17]

Moving on, a rare truth from a spook who essentially admits the near invincibility of the intelligence agencies’ reputations is so much myth:

“If the Mossad had to pay fines for operations it carried out over the years that failed, the state treasury would collapse” [18], [19]

Moving to conclude ronaldthomaswest.com’s 2019 end of year message and notes, just a short paragraph on stats, following on the 2018 end of year message and blog performance. As is the case each year, it is noted ‘who’ is reading is more important, by far, than raw numbers. 2019 is lower in overall numbers but not by much, a drop of about 5,000 hits or 2018’s rounded off 42,500 to 2019’s projected 37,500. There was a noticeable drop in the fall of 2019, when I’d turned my attention to a Native American project or translating pre-Columbian thought to modern (with attending few months sabbatical from geopolitics.) As predicted at the end of 2018, in 2019 a lampoon of CIA torture – Alfreda Bikowsky & The Definition of Stupid – showing (in a case with indisputable statistics) information derived from torture is actually worse than useless, became this blog’s all time most read piece, receiving multiple hits nearly every day after five full years.

To Gina Haspel’s behind the scenes in Langley, Virginia, that’s all folks!

queer bozo |kwi(ə)rˈ|ˈbōzō|
noun
any IC member believing a QAnon assertion is straightforward on its face: that queer bozo Robert David Steele actually believes longtime CIA operative William Barr will do the right thing.
ORIGIN 2019: ronaldthomaswest.com

So, yes, to be perfectly clear, the term “Queer Bozo” is altogether unrelated to this…

…when awarding the first Queer Bozo medal to Robert David Steele, no matter what the hillbilly is doing to the redneck in the video clip is a metaphor strongly resembling what Steele is doing to the Alt-Right community; when promoting Queer Anon, excuse me, I meant QAnon.

The rationale for awarding the first ever Queer Bozo medal to Steele is his promoting the irrational belief (QAnon assertion sucked up by the Alt-Right) that William Barr, whose Department of Justice (FBI), in his first term as Attorney General, sabotaged investigation into the minor child “call boy” visits to the Bush 41 White House…

Bush41-call-boys

…is going to clean up the pervasive pedophilia blackmail operations run by the intelligence agencies, ongoing to this day. Even were there to be a real hunt for some of the Epstein associated child rapists (it’ll be hard to ignore Bill Clinton & ‘friends’, with Clinton’s two dozen+ trips on Epstein’s private jet), if the ‘Conspiracy of Silence’ surrounding Barr during the George H.W. Bush administration is not opened up in the process, all you really have is what amounts to the homosexual neocon pedophiles going after the heterosexual neoliberal pedophiles or what’s otherwise known as a perverts versus perverts, deep state internecine war.

Further information: additional Geoff Bozos awards nominees (other categories) include Jeff Bezos & his CIA playground Washington Post, as well, nominees Pierre Omidyar, Edward Snowdon, The Intercept and Glenn Greenwald; who actually seem to believe Tor, developed and sponsored by the USA’s Department of Defense, is the way to go with online leaks and related communications, and other ‘alternative’ leak sites and billionaire and/or intelligence agency  sponsored journalists who never investigate wealth and its relationship to the real evil.

About Meduza

“…We value our independence and strive to be a reliable, trusted outlet for verified, unbiased information about Russia…”

Yet Meduza, with its’ investigative reporting, hasn’t touched one of the most important, ongoing stories concerning Russia in the 21st Century; rather serves to prop up the unverified, highly biased Western propaganda line accusing Russia of hacking the Democratic National Committee. We’ll come back to this but first:

Speech_Zone - 1

USA ‘color revolution’ hopeful (perennial loser), Alexy Navalny, whose support in Western press crosses every line of hypocrisy, is a lawyer. One might think that he would study the law of that foreign government which supports him most; and discover he could be, if a USA citizen protesting without a permit, be arrested, fined and/or jailed. Or, if by some rational consideration, Navalny (the hypothetical USA citizen), were to abide by the American laws governing protests & protesters, he could be confined to a ‘free speech cage’ (see above illustration.)

Navalny’s most recent protest he organized without a proper permit in Moscow? It was over Meduza Magazine’s investigative reporter, Ivan Golunov, detained on false charges by counter-narcotics police. According to the CIA’s favorite yellow sheet, the New York Times:

Organizers had called the protest to support a Russian journalist, Ivan Golunov, whom supporters say the police had framed on drug charges last week. Pictures produced by the police that seemed to show a drug lab in the reporter’s apartment had been faked. In a rare about-face, the authorities released Mr. Golunov on Tuesday, acknowledged that there was no evidence to support the charges and opened an investigation into the police who had detained him”

Ok, so Russia has corrupt police, now, for a comparison, try your favorite search engine with this precise terminology: “Police ‘throw down’ gun” and see what comes up; decades of American police habit of placing a gun in the hand of an unarmed man they’d shot dead. So, whose police are the greater evil? Let’s consult Jesus:

“You hypocrite! First pull the log from your own eye, so you may see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”

Back to Meduza and the story their ‘award winning’ investigative reporter Ivan Golunov (or any of the Meduza staff) won’t touch; how it is the Russian state had been framed for the Democratic National Committee [DNC] mails ‘hack’ that was actually a DNC insider leak by the assassinated Seth Rich.

Screenshots of two mails (no replies) I’d sent to Meduza on different occasions of their propping up of a tired ‘the Russians did it’ propaganda lie:

“Dear Meduza

When allegations which have been rebutted by multiple independent sources & experts…

“…In 2017, when he was finally arrested, Kozlovsky personally took credit for hacking the Democratic National Committee, claiming that he acted on Dokuchaev’s explicit orders. Already in pretrial detention when Kozlovsky made these allegations…”

@ https://meduza.io/en/feature/2018/08/07/it-s-our-time-to-serve-the-motherland

…are presented in a manner that allows for readers to take the allegations as plausible fact, it poisons the entire narrative (all of your article.) For a start, I suggest Meduza open to possibility the USA’s FBI is as (or more) corrupt as any agency in Russia and then have a read:

“Hello Meduza

Why do you go on discrediting your publication with this following, tired lie invented by US intelligence:

“According to U.S. intelligence, this was also a base of operations for 10 hackers and GRU officers who infiltrated the Democratic National Committee computer network”

@ https://meduza.io/en/feature/2018/11/06/what-is-the-gru-who-gets-recruited-to-be-a-spy-why-are-they-exposed-so-often

There was no Russian ‘hack’ of the DNC, it was an insider theft. It’s just a pity when an intelligence professional looks at your media platform and see you disseminate the very sort of disinformation you propose to expose, discrediting your larger work. Here’s the better information:

So, Meduza, the hard-hitting anti-corruption publication exposing dirt in Russian politics, ducks the biggest story of our time; how it is Russia had ‘hacked’ the DNC mails, actually an American intelligence agency fraudulent propaganda line and more: Meduza upholds this fake news story with 3rd party references rather than dig into what should otherwise produce displeasing result to all those in love with Navalny’s perception of Putin.

So, who is the boogeyman here, who are the liars? Putin or Navalny? Pravda or Meduza? Hosted by NATO Chihuahua Latvia, Meduza Magazine works out of an extreme Russophobe environment. One might suppose it were never a black & white world when faced with news about Russia from certain self-hating Russians –

As a longtime ‘unsuscribed’ person from all mails at Foreign Policy Magazine, not only the ‘Security Brief’ newsletter, it was interesting to me to receive an “internal test’ of the ‘Security Brief’ FP mail. What are the possibilities?

1) It was a straightforward snafu of the Foreign Policy web propaganda outlet.

2) Foreign Policy is losing readers and they ‘faked’ an erroneous mail to try and draw former subscribers back.

Both preceding scenarios indicate the ethically challenged Foreign Policy keeps the email addresses of former subscribers in their database. Then, there are these next possibilities:

3) A ‘disgruntled someone’ at Foreign Policy wanted me to see this issue of the ‘Security Brief’ newsletter (the narcissistic option.)

4) Someone else, possibly Britain’s GCHQ electronic spy service wanted me (and possibly a lot of people) to see it (the paranoid option.)

The third possibility (preceding) is straightforward enough; from the Maidan coup to MH-17 shot down by a Ukrainian fighter jet to ‘the Russians did it’ liberal democracies’ intelligence agency (dis)information operations (DNC ‘hack’ & Steele ‘dossier’), this reporter (yours truly) has on some occasions been at the forefront of poking holes in the steady diet of lies we are fed by the deep state’s handmaiden corporate media.

The fourth possibility is so simple as paying attention to one of my software’s security warning; so, rather than copy and paste the University of London SOAS ‘sponsorship’ logo into this post, defeating the ‘https secure’ option, I took a screenshot of the logo from the FP ‘Security Brief’ newsletter and reprocessed it to safely integrate when reconstructing the FP mail here (see below.)

In this post, I have truncated the “internal test” ‘security brief’ newsletter to leave that material most interesting to this reporter; the ‘evil Russians and fake news’ thumbnail (that is the actual fake news.) The short conclusion drawn is below the italicized text.

My letter in reply to Foreign Policy’s “internal test” ‘Security Brief’ newsletter (also forwarded to multiple addresses at London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies or SOAS)

Re: Tip

Dear Foreign Policy

Re: “INTERNAL TEST: Security Brief: The U.S. Military Has a Civilian Casualties Problem” I wish to inform you, having perused the snafu mail’s content, particularly concerning “getting thoroughly played by Russian intelligence in 2016” fraudulent story, my (soon to posted at this correspondent’s blog, with screenshot of your mail) lampoon titled ’The Scam’ begins:

Dear Sir:

I am Professor Bwana Ungawa, Director of the communications department at Lord Greystoke Institute of Technology. I am contacting you today regarding my former employ as United States Under Secretary of State for Public Information. My work oversaw the United States Information Agency’s black budget program to buy journalism and certain residual funds in the amount of USD$26 million, deposited in account at London. I was appointed curator of these non-returnable black budget funds for the purpose of lavish expenditures on staff at Foreign Policy Magazine; but to my astonishment a colleague correctly informed myself it is possible to buy a Foreign Policy correspondent for the price of a Banderista hooker from the West of Ukraine or about ten dollars! …*

*the expression ‘Bwana, Ungawa!’ (or Tarzan! Attention!) is taken from the 1940s Johnny Weismuller Tarzan movies. Tarzan author Edgar Rice Burroughs should be the FP ‘London Project’ patron saint of media fiction.

The Disinformation Beat

What to do. Not a day goes by without a warning about the danger of disinformation for politics and national security, so consider for once a proposal for what to do about it: empower national election commissions to create regulations for campaigning.

In an essay for FP, Arjun Bisen argues that calling on tech companies to regulate speech risks ceding too much power to non-democratic institutions and that a bit of smart regulation could go a long way toward improving the state of political campaigns in an era of disinformation.

Conversations about how to better handle issues of disinformation are also occurring in newsrooms. After getting thoroughly played by Russian intelligence in 2016 and blanketing the airwaves with coverage of emails hacked and leaked by the Kremlin, American newsrooms are doing a bit of soul searching about how to report on hacked documents, CNN reports. There is little evidence of stringent new policies being put in place, but the newsrooms surveyed by CNN say they will treat hacked material with care.

But the media is still struggling to understand exactly what constitutes disinformation, as Poynter reports. A lack of context or false context to apparently true information represents perhaps a greater problem than outright false material.

In other words, while referencing the Counterfeit News Network (CNN) & Poynter, Foreign Policy maintains the ‘hacked’ (a lie, these mails were almost certainly leaked from the inside by Seth Rich) DNC mails story should be retroactively looked at not for the mails newsworthy content but for the very fact they were reported on AT ALL (FP appears to have a problem with drawing attention to that content and questions as to the actual source of the leaked mails.) Placing the mails actual content under the authority of a regulatory body determining whether the ‘aura’ surrounding the story is desirable points to possible censorship and related imprisonment and fines for futue reporting outside the scope of the propaganda line.

The other noteworthy item in the ‘snafu’ mail is, London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies (university think tank) sponsoring the purveyor of the authentically fake news promulgated by Foreign Policy. That ‘special relationship’ with ‘Our American Cousin’ (the play Lincoln was watching when John Wilkes Booth shot him at Ford Theater) is going strong; We (Americans) support Britain’s phony Skripal poisoning narrative and Britain supports our (American) (dis)information operation concerning the DNC mails (with the Steele Dossier firmly fixed in the middle, an intelligence operation sponsored by both sides.)

Note: As I was finishing up this piece, Foreign Policy sent an ‘oops!’ mail apologizing for their snafu:

We’re sorry.

Yesterday, Foreign Policy accidentally sent you an internal email testing a new format for our Security Brief newsletter. We regret the error and have taken steps to ensure it won’t happen again. We value your continued readership and interest. 

And since we accidentally gave you a sneak peek, we welcome any feedback you’d care to offer on our new email format! If you’re not currently receiving Security Brief, sign up here, and we’ll be sure you receive the redesigned email

This points to 2) Foreign Policy is losing readers and they ‘faked’ an erroneous mail to try and draw former subscribers back (but also could be cover for 3 or 4)
