A Racketeer is someone who makes money from a pattern of illegal activities.

(Apr. 21, 2017)—President Bill Clinton labeled the tragic conflicts in Rwanda (1994) and Kosovo (1998) as genocidal rage. What are the odds of one U.S. president encountering not one but two "genocides" in very small countries within four years? What changed to trigger such sudden furor? Who paid for it? Who organized it? What was the end game?

With the benefit of hindsight, a rogue C.I.A. aligned with globalist corporations appears to have been the secret power fomenting these acts of violence. It appears that in classical spy misdirection, the over one million victims of Rwanda and Kosovo were made out to be the causes. This false narrative was supported by a complicit mainstream media.

On May 12, 2005 FBI Special Agent In Charge Ted L. Gunderson said "people in our government . . . a rogue outfit" inside the C.I.A. is behind all the acts of terror since Bill and Hillary Clinton came to power in 1993. (Editors' Note: Many links in this post, like this one, are bookmarks in a detailed TIMELINE and bibliography. Once clicked, please be patient for it to load and go automatically to the timeline entry)

Gunderson, a former station chief in Memphis, Dallas and Los Angeles and candidate for FBI Director in 1979, called them a "covert military criminal enterprise, government enterprise, primarily by US military intelligence, that is operating full throttle and everybody [in the FBI and Justice Department] refuses to investigate it."

Clinton's racketeering for Deep State globalism

In the two days before George Bush became President, Bill Clinton made some telling moves that can only be understood now.

Clinton pardoned his former C.I.A. spy chief John M. Deutch for mishandling classified information and likely much more. Deutch was C.I.A. director when it appears the scheme to form a Deep State shadow government global Internet-based surveillance system was hatched.

Notably, Deutch's daughter-in-law, Marne L. Levine, worked for Larry Summers as Treasury Secretary (1993-2001), Harvard (2002-2004), National Economic Council (2008), and now at Instagram (2014-current) where she is chief operating officer. Summers had popped up as Instagram's sole director just before Instagram sold to Facebook for $1 billion. Summers' former student, Gmail founder and chief of staff at the Treasury Department, Sheryl K. Sandberg, brokered the Instagram deal as Facebook chief operating officer. The collusion is evident. Summers and Sandberg were colleagues with Russian oligarchs Yuri Milner and Alisher Usmanov. Milner and Usmanov were also Goldman Sachs partners in Moscow.

These seemingly unconnected events now show, in hindsight, that the C.I.A., Google, Facebook and those with whom they collude have been part of a globalist takeover plan for decades. It certainly proves they planned long ago to control the Internet, email and social networking.

For the record, along with C.I.A. Deutch, Clinton also pardoned his fugitive financier buddy Marc Rich who was living in Switzerland to escape extradition to the US. for tax evasion.

Then, in a weird twist, Clinton appointed Microsoft’s CEO Bill Gates and his national security spy attorney, James P. Chandler, to the National Infrastructure Assurance/Advisory Council (NIAC). Why would the outgoing President take such a proactive step when the next president could easily cancel the order?

The theft of the social networking invention

At the time of his NIAC appointment, James P. Chandler was also the patent attorney for Columbus OH innovator Michael McKibben and Leader Technologies. Leader had engaged him in early 2000 to protect and patent their new invention: social networking. Chandler became a Leader director as well.

In the mid 1990's, McKibben had rebuilt AT&T's email system, AT&T Access Plus 3.0, in time for the launch of Windows 95 by Bill Gates. (Secretly, Gates & AT&T had temporarily fallen out on how Microsoft was going to control Internet email and browser protocols, opening the door for McKibben's team.)

McKibben then founded Leader Technologies to innovate an entirely new approach for Internet collaboration. McKibben had seen that legacy "groupware" software platforms offered by IBM, AT&T and Microsoft (i.e., Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, Novel Groupwise and IBM Websphere) would fundamentally fail to scale to the transaction volume needed by the emerging Internet. In fact, McKibben and his team successfully revived and dramatically enhanced the AT&T Email system after the AT&T Lotus/IBM Network Notes and cc:Mail offerings failed to work as advertised. AT&T sales promotion (Nov. 28, 1995): "We've enhanced it so much it's out of this world."

Unknown to Leader, Chandler was already colluding with IBM, AT&T, Microsoft, the Clintons, C.I.A., NSA, FBI, Eric Holder, David Kappos, the Bushes, Larry Summers, Robert Mueller and John Podesta, among many, and stole Leader's invention to fix the technology shortcomings of their shadow government—in the name of "national security" of course. Leader's investors had risked over $10 million dollars and Leader's engineers had created over 750,000 lines of source code. This invention, stripped of its personal security and privacy programs, is the engine that drives the rogue CIA-controlled "social" Internet today in a diabolical public-private racketeering scheme of global proportions.

During this time, Mark Zuckerberg was a junior in high school. Zuckerberg's now well-recognized pathological lying would fit the profile needed by the C.I.A. MKUltra mind control program. Zuckerberg's all-too-perfect Harvard narrative was quickly promoted by Fortune magazine's David Kirkpatrick in The Facebook Effect, and Hollywood in The Social Network. The Zuckerberg phoenix-like Harvard dorm story emerged: (1) after Clintonista C.I.A. agent Larry Summers was appointed president of Harvard, (2) C.I.A. agent Marne L. Levine became his chief of staff, (3) Summers and Levine fended off four other competing Harvard facebooks (Ceglia, Winklevosses, Greenspan, Harvard admin) until Leader Technologies' invention was debugged (Oct. 28, 2003), and (4) the warrantless surveillance of Americans was initiated by Project Stellar Wind. In addition, certain unsolved New York "Craigslist killer" abductions and the disappearance of Jessica Taylor on Long Island keep coming into view given the shadow government's preference for using sex, drugs, pedophilia and murder to blackmail and control targets. What is known from sworn testimony is that Zuckerberg favored Craigslist for arranging dates and advertising his programming services back then. Craigslist is how he first met Paul Ceglia and others. See FBI Special Agent In Charge Ted L. Gunderson.

New, Apr. 25, 2017: Clearly, Congress, the Justice Department or local law enforcement in Long Island needs to impound Zuckerberg's 28 stonewalled computer devices from Harvard (2003-2004) before they are destroyed by his attorneys, McManis Faulkner LLP and Gibson Dunn LLP, who have had custody of them and have lied to and misled multiple federal and state courts about this important evidence. It might include instant message (AOL IM) discussions of poison ivy, unmarked burlap sacks, an apartment on top of a Chinese restaurant, a Ute car handy for hauling, or not. See also AFI. (Mar. 26, 2017). "House Intelligence Committee: Impound Zuckerberg's 28 computers and prove real Russian meddling."... Russians working with the Clintons long before the 2016 election.

1st Clue: Both Presidents Bush and Obama extended and enhanced the NIAC's powers with more than 23 additional executive orders. This became a technology platform that is parallel to the NSA's, but used without regard to the Constitution. This duplicity is confirmed by William Binney, the NSA's chief architect, pushed out on Oct. 31, 2001.

2nd Clue: This occurred just eight months before 9/11 and the Patriot Act. Remember, FBI Special Agent In Charge Ted L. Gunderson said 9/11 was a rogue C.I.A. false flag pretext designed to push the country into approving the Patriot Act that Gunderson said "takes away many of our constitutional rights and civil liberties."

Indeed, Clinton had formed NIAC by Executive Order 13130 on July 14, 1999. Nine weeks later on Sep. 29, 1999, Clinton ordered the C.I.A. to form a private venture capital company called In-Q-Tel. Two weeks later, on Nov. 12, 1999, Clinton and Summers abolished Glass-Steagall banking controls that ushered in the era of "too big to fail" banks, like Citigroup. Citibank then torched mortgage lending controls, thus making the 2008 crash inevitable. More collusion is evident.

The list of founding trustees for C.I.A. In-Q-Tel is telling. They are all prominent in the military-industrial complex that President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about in his Jan. 17, 1961 farewell address:

Telecredit, Inc., Lockheed, Xerox, Columbia University, Goldman Sachs, Marsh & McLennan Capital, Inc., Technovations, Inc., Global Technology Partners, U.S. Defense Dept., Lucent, Yurie Systems, AT&T, Teligent,Inc., Lockheed Missile & Space Systems, C.I.A. Added to these companies are NIAC "advisors" including Lockheed Martin, BellSouth, Symantec, Microsoft, Cisco, Mellon Financial, IBM (ISS), and Pfizer.

These companies all benefitted from the rogue C.I.A.'s installation of strongman Paul Kagame in Rwanda. In exchange for his Central African dictatorship, Kagame has guaranteed them mining access to petroleum, uranium and rare earth minerals used to manufacture products for the computer, mobile phone, TV, defense and high tech industries, as well as bribery and money laundering, including gold, diamonds, coltan, niobium, cobalt and copper in Central Africa.

All of these military-industrial complex companies were beneficiaries of the so-called “Rwanda Genocide” in 1994.


On May 17, 2001, former NSA analyst and Africa specialist, Wayne Madsen, told a Congressional Hearing that the tragic slaughter of one million Rwandans in 1994 was not based on Hutu versus Tutsi tribal hatred run amok.

The genocide narrative had been widely reported by globalists, including Presidents Clinton, Bush, Obama, many in Congress, Wikipedia and the Hollywood film Hotel Rwanda.

Rather, Madsen says the Rwandan massacre was a globalist and rogue C.I.A. “false flag” pretext to: (1) depopulate Rwanda and (2) consolidate control of uranium and petroleum as well as rare earth mineral mining of gold, diamonds, coltan, niobium, cobalt and copper in Central Africa.

Madsen and other investigators provide substantial evidence that the Rwandan genocide narrative fails even the most cursory analysis. For example, Wikipedia reinforces the mainstream narrative that 70-80% of all Tutsi Rwandans, representing 800,000 people, were murdered by supposed machete-wielding Hutu killers.

That would put the Tutsi population at 1.1 million. However, only 596,000 Tutsis lived in Rwanda according to the Center for Research on Globalization. Therefore, the globalist narrative is off by almost half. According to eyewitnesses, some mass graves labeled as Tutsi contained just as many Hutu victims.

Tragically, the mass murders in Rwanda were a pretext for the globalist rogue C.I.A. to put Tutsi strongman Paul Kagame into power at any cost to human life.

At the time of the October 1990 invasion of Rwanda, Paul Kagame was being trained by the globalist rogue C.I.A. at the Pentagon's General Staff and Command College at Fort Leavenworth, in Kansas (USA). Kagame returned and led the four year war that resulted in the deaths of perhaps several hundred thousand Hutu people between October 1990 and April 1994 alone. From Keith Harmon Snow.

The rogue C.I.A.’s high technology partners manufacture products and services vital to building a global C.I.A. spy surveillance system that parallels the NSA, but is not subject to the U.S. Constitution. These companies include Sony, Microsoft, Dell, Ericsson, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Nokia, Intel, Lucent, Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Motorola.

Paul Kagame is a regular guest of Bill & Hillary Clinton, The Clinton Foundation and the World Economic Forum. See “The Global Elite’s Favorite Strongman,” The New York Times, Sep. 07, 2013.

The Clintons' Rwandan racketeering pattern is evident:

  1. Target the resource that you want to control
  2. Recruit beneficiaries to this scheme as accomplices
  3. Infiltrate both the resource holder and his enemies
  4. Concoct a bad acts pretext to seize control of the resource (sex, drugs, genocide, intolerance, hate, Islamophobia, sexism, homophobia, racism, fake news, The Russians!, whatever works)
  5. Record your accomplices performing the bad acts to guarantee they don't expose you later
  6. Plant the bad acts evidence
  7. Pre-write the media narrative
  8. Send your mainstream media accomplices the narrative
  9. Proliferate your fake narrative among your mainstream media accomplices
  10. Accuse your resource target of your fabricated pretext bad acts
  11. Press the pretext in the media until you become the holder of the resource
  12. Or, abandon your pretext if you are exposed or achieve your objective. (e.g., The Russians! pretext was dropped overnight when President Trump bombed Syria)


Stopping genocide was the pretext in Rwanda, we believe.

That worked so well for Clinton that he repeated the playbook in Kosovo.

For the general public at the time, we were told that seething ethnic Serbian-Albian hatred led to "ethnic cleansing!" and "genocide!" in Kosovo. Who could question that story? Most Americans don’t even know where Kosovo is.

Like the rampaging Hutu-Tutsi Rwanda hatred narrative, Serbs and Albanians were characterized as equally seething in Kosovo.

Really? The narrative quickly falls apart upon further investigation.

Kosovo Refugees
Fig. 4—Kosovo Refugees.

Why Kosovo? What was the end game?

Only hindsight answers this question: Why Kosovo? Why destabilize Serbia whose Orthodox Christian majority has co-existed with Ottoman Muslims for over 400 years?

Kosovo is a primary migration path for Middle Eastern refugees moving into Europe. Prior to the C.I.A. / NATO intervention in Kosovo, the Balkan borders were guarded by the Serbian government in Bucharest where the predominant religion is Serbian Orthodox Christianity.

Fig. 5—The way in. Main European migration routes. Detections of illegal border crossings. Jan.-Jul. 2015. The Economist. Graphic: The Economist.

Serbian Orthodox Christian Church believers reach back to 1st century Apostolic times. Several bishops from the area now called Serbia participated in the First Council of Nicaea (325) where the Nicene Creed was drafted and the Canon of our modern Bible was first compiled. In the history of the Second Millenium, the Serbian Church has thrived despite 400 years of Ottoman Muslim domination (ca. 1459-1879) and 39 years under the Nazis, then Communists (ca. 1941-1980).

Given the choice, Serbian Christians were certain to resist being overrun by the forced migration of Islamists from the Middle East created by ISIS—now proved to be a creation of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Who can fault them for thinking that 400 years of Muslim Ottoman domination was enough? But of course, few in the West knew this history of Ottoman Islamic subjugation of an anciently historic Christian region.

Evidently, the globalists decided that Serbian Orthodox Christians in Kosovo needed to be demonized and Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian Muslim minority given the territory. The Islamist KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army) fighters, including mercenaries from Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, destroyed 155 Serbian Orthodox Christian churches and monasteries during the conflict, some dating to the 12th century. These are more inconvenient facts proving that the allegations of supposed Serbian genocide were faked.

The amount of human energy, emotion and scholarship that has been consumed to disprove the Clintons' "genocide!" lie is tragic. That time and human creativity could have been so much better spent uplifting humankind rather than having to defend against these devils. Give a devil power and what do you get? Clinton & Co.

As observed earlier, the Clintons learned from Rwanda that genocide sells to an American public that is more concerned about Tom Brady's deflated football and endless titillation from 256-max character text messages.

In seminal testimony to Congress on Feb. 02, 1999, C.I.A. Director George J. Tenet fanned the flames of this narrative when he claimed that the Serbian Army (Christians) had massacred 45 “innocent civilians” in Račak, Kosovo (Muslims).

President Clinton and the mainstream media immediately seized on this story, labeled it genocidal rage, and Račak became the pretext for NATO intervention.

Staged Racak genocidal rage and faked photos

Račak, Kosovo
Fig. 6—Račak, Kosovo.

However, investigative journalists for Accuracy in Media discovered that the Račak genocide story was a hoax. They proved that the photos used to justify the NATO intervention were fake. The supposed Račak massacre never happened.

In truth, the French newspaper Le Figaro journalist Christophe Chatelet was in Račak the day of a battle between Serb and KLA forces, just hours after the Serbian forces withdrew.

Chatelet saw nothing notable to an experienced journalist. He saw one dead and four wounded—the casualties of a gun battle between two armies. The next day he returned with colleague Renaud Girards to an international media circus with 45 civilian bodies staged in the streets and farmhouses. He saw perhaps a dozen or more bodies thrown into a ditch that weren't there the day before. And, he did not see the commensurate spent bullet shell casings that one would expect at the scene of a mass murder of civilians at close range (Clinton's speech:"sprayed with bullets"). Nevertheless, newly-minted talk of Serbian Army genocide was repeated in unison by the KLA fighters who had returned after the battle. Clearly, Račak was chosen as Clinton's pretext for NATO/U.N. intervention.

President Clinton jumped on the fabricated genocide narrative and painted a horrifying picture of Serbian (Christian) atrocities against the KLA (Islamists), saying:

"We've seen innocent people taken from their homes, forced to kneel in the dirt and sprayed with bullets; Kosovar men dragged from their families, fathers and sons together, lined up and shot in cold blood. This is not war in the traditional sense. It is an attack by tanks and artillery on a largely defenseless people whose leaders have already agreed to peace." Clinton declared, "Ending this tragedy is a moral imperative."

The New York Times chimed in, saying:

"Some of the dead were found with their eyes gouged out or heads smashed in, and one man lay decapitated in the courtyard of his compound. The victims included one young woman and a 12-year-old boy. Many were older men, including one who was 70." It added that "many had been shot at close range" and that villagers said that "the Serbian forces had rounded up the men, driven them up the hill and shot them." Amb. William Walker, head of the Kosovo Verification Mission, had called this an "unspeakable atrocity" and "a crime against humanity."

Notice the Extreme Emotion Baiting by President Clinton and The New York Times—"forced to kneel in the dirt" "sprayed with bullets" "dragged from their families" "lined up and shot in cold blood" "defenseless" "eyes gouged out" "heads smashed in" "decapitated" "13-year old" "older men, one 70" "shot at close range" "rounded up" "unspeakable atrocity" "crime against humanity"

These are mass media emotion triggers developed and tested by the C.I.A.'s MKUltra mass mind-control program. These smear techniques were used succesfully by Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump. Fortunately, not used well enough. Perhaps America's lethargic public is finally waking up?

When Le Figaro's Christophe Chatelet was asked how he could explain how his report the previous evening of one dead could have ballooned to 45 bodies strewn all over the village and talk of genocide. He said, "I can't solve that mystery."

Despite the Le Figaro journalists confirming that Račak was a hoax, members of Congress quickly fell in line behind the Islamist KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army). They even compared the KLA to America’s 1776 colonist “freedom fighters.” No one seemed to care that many of the KLA fighters were imported from Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia.

“genocide!” a pretext that has worked ... no more

The “genocide” narrative has worked. Rwanda and Central Africa are today controlled by a C.I.A.-installed strongman. Central Africa's rare earth minerals and blood diamonds flow freely to America's rogue C.I.A. and its high technology military-industrial complex. Rwandans mourn their dead souls.

An Islamist-controlled Kosovo has allowed the free flow of Syrian immigrants into Western Europe. Kosovars mourn their dead souls.

Clearly, accusations of genocide are easily sold as pretexts to a sleeping, undiscerning public. What was not fake was the tragic murder of over a millions of Rwandans and Kosavars. Did the parents of these globalists not teach them that mortality and judgment for our deeds before God comes to us all?

Bill Clinton oversaw two “genocides” in small countries during his eight years in office. Both pretexts saw minorities aligned with the globalist rogue C.I.A. come to power.

In true Saul Alinsky form (accuse your opponent with what you are doing), the victims in Rwanda and Kosovo were called the butchers.

What is different now?

  • The Clintons are out of power
  • George Soros no longer runs the U.S. State Department
  • The Clinton Foundation is exposed
  • The Deep State shadow government has been exposed
  • A rogue C.I.A. is exposed
  • The British have voted to leave the European Union
  • Donald Trump is President
  • Populism over globalism is exploding worldwide

Defeat the Globalists

Justice for their victims

The rogue C.I.A. globalist shadow government is currently in control of global Internet “Big Data” and is spying on all of us.

Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barack Obama enabled a C.I.A.-run shadow government to be established that controls our technology led by IBM, Microsoft, Google, AT&T, Cisco, Yahoo, Oracle, EMC, Dell, Lenovo, Symantec, Juniper and Facebook, among others.

This rogue C.I.A. technocracy is running the Internet and must be dismantled.

"The Internet of Things" Silicon chips have rogue C.I.A. backdoor keys burned on them

WikiLeaks, Shadow Brokers and others have shown us that the current Internet is fundamentally compromised down to the electronic chip level and must be scrapped.

No amount of adjustment can fix a silicon chip with a backdoor encryption key burned onto the circuitry. That chip must be thrown away.

This is the devilish level to which the rogue C.I.A. has stooped to accomplish its technocratic takeover. They appear hell bent on robbing our property, privacy and well-being to control us forever.

We need a digital Manhattan Project to fix the Internet. Now.

    “Again, it’s happening, it seems. I just saw it as I was walking in, so that’s a terrible thing. And that’s a very, very terrible thing that’s going on in the world today. But it looks like another terrorist attack. And what can you say? It just never ends.

    While the claims of collusion between Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia seem to have dropped abruptly off the media radar, there is a new report of collaboration between a U.S. political campaign and foreign powers.

    But the campaign was that of Hillary Clinton, and the chief architect was Barack Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, the report says.

    “One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election – Hillary’s,” writes George Neumayr in the American Spectator.

    “Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy,” Newmayr wrote.

    “He used their phone intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.”

    The Spectator said Brennan’s CIA “operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump.”

    Sharyl Attkisson
    A remarkable timeline assembled by ace investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson shows just how often the Obama administration apparently spied on friend and foe alike.

    With all of this information gathered in one place, WND then compiled a list gleaned from Attkisson’s timeline of all those whom the Obama administration is suspected of targeting either by spying, or investigating and/or prosecuting using intelligence information.

    And the list is impressive.

    Former U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif.
    Pro-Israel lobbyists
    FBI contractor and whistleblower Shamai Leibowitz
    Tea-party groups
    New York Times reporter James Risen

    WND asked Attkisson: Given the sheer number of areas in which it engaged in spying, did it not seem clear that the Obama administration had weaponized the intelligence community?

    “I think the facts of the timeline speak for themselves, and people are free to draw their own inferences,” she replied.

    Staff. (Apr. 20, 2017). Developer of Moscow oceanarium files lawsuit against Facebook Trading offshore. RapsiNews.

    MOSCOW, April 20 (RAPSI) – Developer of construction project for Marin Gardens oceanarium in Moscow has filed 633 billion rubles (about $11 billion) lawsuit against Facebook Trading Limited company registered in Cyprus, court records read on Thursday.

    The lawsuit reached the Moscow Commercial Court on April 11 and was not commenced because of improper formalization. Marin Gardens asks the court to recover debt from the defendant in this case. The plaintiff has earlier been controlled by former owner of Kazakh BTA Bank Mukhtar Ablyazov and the defendant is also related to the ex-banker.

    The Moscow Commercial Court declared Marin Gardens bankrupt in October 2016. The company’s debt was nearly as high as 8.2 billion rubles (about $146.4 million), almost all of it was owed to BTA Bank.

    According to the case documents, Marin Gardens has granted a $99.4 million loan to the Facebook Trading Limited just a day after receiving $99 million from Legendcatch Services Limited. In 2010, the Moscow Commercial Court noted that most of the funds were not used for construction but were transferred to various offshore companies under the guise of using them for investments. This guise was allegedly created specifically for the main creditor, BTA Bank.

    The court stated that Facebook Trading Limited is owned by Ablyazov.

    In a podcast interview, WikiLeaks head Julian Assange characterized his site's most recent series of leaks as showing "all sorts of illegal actions by the CIA."

    In the same interview for the "Intercepted" podcast, Assange accused the CIA director of slamming him "to get ahead of the publicity curve."

    The comments came at the beginning of the interview conducted by Jeremy Scahill of The Intercept, as the two discussed CIA Director Mike Pompeo's recent speech calling out WikiLeaks as a "nonstate hostile intelligence service."

    "In fact, the reason Pompeo is launching this attack is because he understands we are exposing in this series all sorts of illegal actions by the CIA, so he’s trying to get ahead of the publicity curve and create a pre-emptive defense," Assange said.

    The conversation addressed recent allegations that WikiLeaks has stretched the facts in its descriptions of what the CIA files showed. Those allegations were made in The Hill and other news outlets, including The Intercept.

    Today, WikiLeaks' lawyers have written to Google and the US Department of Justice concerning a serious violation of the privacy and journalistic rights of WikiLeaks' staff. Investigations editor Sarah Harrison, Section Editor Joseph Farrell and senior journalist and spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson have received notice that Google had handed over all their emails and metadata to the United States government on the back of alleged 'conspiracy' and 'espionage' warrants carrying up to 45 years in prison.

    Importantly, the warrants reveal for the first time a clear list of the alleged offences the US government is trying to apply in its attempts to build a prosecution against Julian Assange and other WikiLeaks staff. The offences add up to a total of 45 years of imprisonment.

    The US government is claiming universal jurisdiction to apply the Espionage Act, general Conspiracy statute and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act to journalists and publishers – a horrifying precedent for press freedoms around the world. Once an offence is alleged in relation to a journalist or their source, the whole media organisation, by the nature of its work flow, can be targeted as alleged 'conspiracy'. Julian Assange, WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief said: 'WikiLeaks has out endured everything the Obama administration has thrown at us and we will out endure these latest "offences" too.'

    Two of Trey Gowdy’s Investigators Vanish Amid Pedophile Investigation

    Two undercover investigators working for Congressman Trey Gowdy, on behalf of the Congressional Committee, have mysteriously gone missing in Arkansas during an investigation into child sex trafficking. The special investigators, assigned by the Justice Department to remain independent of the FBI, have reportedly disappeared without a trace whilst in Little Rock with Congressional subpoenas to conduct a search of the private residence at the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library.

    The two men, who identities remain classified, were on a private contract with the federal government and were believed to have been investigating connections between high-ranking officials and an Elite pedophile ring. According to phone records, the federal investigators’ last known location was on route to Little Rock, Arkansas. There are also reports that their vehicle was found in a rest area just outside Little Rock with the keys still in the ignition. Straight-talking Congressman Gowdy has been tasked by President Trump to head-up investigations on behalf of the Congressional Committee into human trafficking, corruption, Russian hacking allegations, and Hillary Clinton’s emails after fears that the FBI had been compromised.

    President Donald Trump is “a hostile revisionist power” at the heart of the free world dedicated to overturn the “U.S.-led liberal order,” according to Foreign Affairs – the mouthpiece of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations.

    “The United States and Europe were supposed to stand shoulder to shoulder to protect the gains reaped from 70 years of cooperation. Instead, the world’s most powerful state has begun to sabotage the order of created,” wrote Gilford John Ikenberry, Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. “A hostile revisionist power has indeed arrived on the scene, but it sits in the Oval Office, the beating heart of the free world.”

    President Trump broke “70 years of tradition by signaling the end of U.S. support for the European Union” when he endorsed Brexit and expressed “common cause with right-wing European parties that seek to unravel the postwar European project,” Ikenberry added.

    That laptop shared by disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, vice chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, may have contained files damaging to the Clintons after all.

    That, at least, is the claim of Roger Stone, 64, the longtime political operative and Donald Trump supporter, who is himself now the subject of the FBI's investigation into possible contacts between Trump-campaign operatives and Russian agents. Stone has denied any collusion and has offered to testify before the congressional committees that are also investigating Russian interference in the election.

    On Nov. 6, just two days before the presidential election, FBI director James Comey announced that an examination of the laptop had turned up no new evidence against Clinton, who had been under investigation for her use of a personal email server.

    What if our belief in self-government is a belief in a myth? What if the election of one political party over the other to control Congress changes only appearances? What if taxes stay high and regulations stay pervasive and the government stays oppressive and presidents fight wars no matter what the politicians promise and no matter who wins elections? What if the true goal of those whom we elect to Congress is not to be our agents of self-government or even to preserve our personal liberties but to remain in power by getting re-elected?

    What if they use government to aid their own re-elections by bribing us with our own money -- the rich with bailouts, the middle class with tax breaks and the poor with transfer payments?

    What if Congress has written laws that are too complex for its own members to read and understand? What if the language of most federal laws is intentionally arcane so that ordinary voters cannot understand it? What if that language is actually written by faceless bureaucrats and not by accountable members of Congress? What if members of Congress in fact rarely read any legislation before voting on it? What if some legislation refers to secrets and secret procedures that only a few members of Congress are permitted to see and utilize?

    What if when the select few members of Congress who are permitted to see those secrets do see them, those members are themselves sworn to secrecy? What if that means that our elected representatives -- our supposed agents of self-government in the government -- do not fully know what the government is doing and that even if they do, they can’t legally tell us?

    What if our representatives in Congress don’t really represent us? What if they really represent a political party? What if each political party is controlled by a small leadership group that punishes members who defy it? What if Congress has written laws and rules that permit its leaders to punish members’ defiance? What if another way to characterize defiance of political party leadership is political courage?

    What if the laws that Congress has written about the CIA have delegated congressional power to a small secret committee of members from both houses of Congress and both political parties? What if that committee can authorize secret wars in foreign lands conducted not by the military but by the CIA? What if the reason these folks authorize the CIA and not the military to conduct secret wars is the existence of federal laws that require reporting to and a vote of the entire Congress for the military to be used but require only the small secret committee to approve for the CIA to be used?

    Jonathan Taplin. (Apr. 22, 2017). Is It Time to Break Up Google? The New York Times.

    In just 10 years, the world’s five largest companies by market capitalization have all changed, save for one: Microsoft. Exxon Mobil, General Electric, Citigroup and Shell Oil are out and Apple, Alphabet (the parent company of Google), Amazon and Facebook have taken their place.

    They’re all tech companies, and each dominates its corner of the industry: Google has an 88 percent market share in search advertising, Facebook (and its subsidiaries Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger) owns 77 percent of mobile social traffic and Amazon has a 74 percent share in the e-book market. In classic economic terms, all three are monopolies.

    We have been transported back to the early 20th century, when arguments about “the curse of bigness” were advanced by President Woodrow Wilson’s counselor, Louis Brandeis, before Wilson appointed him to the Supreme Court. Brandeis wanted to eliminate monopolies, because (in the words of his biographer Melvin Urofsky) “in a democratic society the existence of large centers of private power is dangerous to the continuing vitality of a free people.” We need look no further than the conduct of the largest banks in the 2008 financial crisis or the role that Facebook and Google play in the “fake news” business to know that Brandeis was right.

    While Brandeis generally opposed regulation — which, he worried, inevitably led to the corruption of the regulator — and instead advocated breaking up “bigness,” he made an exception for “natural” monopolies, like telephone, water and power companies and railroads, where it made sense to have one or a few companies in control of an industry.

    Could it be that these companies — and Google in particular — have become natural monopolies by supplying an entire market’s demand for a service, at a price lower than what would be offered by two competing firms? And if so, is it time to regulate them like public utilities?

    Consider a historical analogy: the early days of telecommunications.

    In 1895 a photograph of the business district of a large city might have shown 20 phone wires attached to most buildings. Each wire was owned by a different phone company, and none of them worked with the others. Without network effects, the networks themselves were almost useless.

    The solution was for a single company, American Telephone and Telegraph, to consolidate the industry by buying up all the small operators and creating a single network — a natural monopoly. The government permitted it, but then regulated this monopoly through the Federal Communications Commission.

    AT&T (also known as the Bell System) had its rates regulated, and was required to spend a fixed percentage of its profits on research and development. In 1925 AT&T set up Bell Labs as a separate subsidiary with the mandate to develop the next generation of communications technology, but also to do basic research in physics and other sciences. Over the next 50 years, the basics of the digital age — the transistor, the microchip, the solar cell, the microwave, the laser, cellular telephony — all came out of Bell Labs, along with eight Nobel Prizes.

    In a 1956 consent decree in which the Justice Department allowed AT&T to maintain its phone monopoly, the government extracted a huge concession: All past patents were licensed (to any American company) royalty-free, and all future patents were to be licensed for a small fee. These licenses led to the creation of Texas Instruments, Motorola, Fairchild Semiconductor and many other start-ups.

    True, the internet never had the same problems of interoperability. And Google’s route to dominance is different from the Bell System’s. Nevertheless it still has all of the characteristics of a public utility.

    *** END, GS comment, PART I ***

    1. *** BEGIN, GS comment, PART II ***

      We are going to have to decide fairly soon whether Google, Facebook and Amazon are the kinds of natural monopolies that need to be regulated, or whether we allow the status quo to continue, pretending that unfettered monoliths don’t inflict damage on our privacy and democracy.

      It is impossible to deny that Facebook, Google and Amazon have stymied innovation on a broad scale. To begin with, the platforms of Google and Facebook are the point of access to all media for the majority of Americans. While profits at Google, Facebook and Amazon have soared, revenues in media businesses like newspaper publishing or the music business have, since 2001, fallen by 70 percent.

      According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, newspaper publishers lost over half their employees between 2001 and 2016. Billions of dollars have been reallocated from creators of content to owners of monopoly platforms. All content creators dependent on advertising must negotiate with Google or Facebook as aggregator, the sole lifeline between themselves and the vast internet cloud.

      It’s not just newspapers that are hurting. In 2015 two Obama economic advisers, Peter Orszag and Jason Furman, published a paper arguing that the rise in “supernormal returns on capital” at firms with limited competition is leading to a rise in economic inequality. The M.I.T. economists Scott Stern and Jorge Guzman explained that in the presence of these giant firms, “it has become increasingly advantageous to be an incumbent, and less advantageous to be a new entrant.”

      There are a few obvious regulations to start with. Monopoly is made by acquisition — Google buying AdMob and DoubleClick, Facebook buying Instagram and WhatsApp, Amazon buying, to name just a few, Audible, Twitch, Zappos and Alexa. At a minimum, these companies should not be allowed to acquire other major firms, like Spotify or Snapchat.

      The second alternative is to regulate a company like Google as a public utility, requiring it to license out patents, for a nominal fee, for its search algorithms, advertising exchanges and other key innovations.

      The third alternative is to remove the “safe harbor” clause in the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which allows companies like Facebook and Google’s YouTube to free ride on the content produced by others. The reason there are 40,000 Islamic State videos on YouTube, many with ads that yield revenue for those who posted them, is that YouTube does not have to take responsibility for the content on its network. Facebook, Google and Twitter claim that policing their networks would be too onerous. But that’s preposterous: They already police their networks for pornography, and quite well.

      Removing the safe harbor provision would also force social networks to pay for the content posted on their sites. A simple example: One million downloads of a song on iTunes would yield the performer and his record label about $900,000. One million streams of that same song on YouTube would earn them about $900.

      I’m under no delusion that, with libertarian tech moguls like Peter Thiel in President Trump’s inner circle, antitrust regulation of the internet monopolies will be a priority. Ultimately we may have to wait four years, at which time the monopolies will be so dominant that the only remedy will be to break them up. Force Google to sell DoubleClick. Force Facebook to sell WhatsApp and Instagram.

      Woodrow Wilson was right when he said in 1913, “If monopoly persists, monopoly will always sit at the helm of the government.” We ignore his words at our peril.

    This week we learned that the ever “media friendly” smiling publicity hound of the House of Representatives, Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, would not run again for his seat next year. Ironically, as Chaffetz announced that he would step down from his seemingly powerful role as chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee – a body that is the investigative “scandal arm” of the House – it was revealed by Circa News that an investigation he had conducted over the tragic shoot down of Extortion 17 was part of an elaborate government cover-up, itself criminal in nature. Had Chaffetz remained as chairman, ironically, his own committee would have had to investigate and likely take action against him. Let me explain.

    Extortion 17 was a hastily arranged mission in Afghanistan in 2011 whereby 30 American servicemen, 22 of them special ops, were sent into battle allegedly to kill terrorists and then shot down by the Taliban, with the financial and other assistance of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the complicity of then Afghan President Hamid Karzai, one of the most corrupt politicians in world history. Here is the video of a presser we held on May 9, 2013 explaining this tragedy. This occurred just three months after Osama bin Laden was allegedly killed. (A picture of bin Laden’s body has never been disclosed publicly. Some have speculated that he died before of natural causes and that President Obama claimed credit to further his 2012 election effort.) Several brave heroes died tragically on that fateful day, Aug. 6, 2011.

    According to The New York Times, FBI agents met in early October with the former spy, Christopher Steele, to discuss his future work on the dossier. Steele had started compiling research in June on Trump’s potential ties to Russia. He was working for Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was a client of an ally of Hillary Clinton’s.

    The Times reports that Steele and the FBI settled on a $50,000 payout if the ex-MI6 agent could corroborate information contained in his dossier.

    As The Times notes, the payment was never made, perhaps suggesting that Steele was not able to confirm information in his memos.

    What looks to be just another private jet parked at Wellington Airport may in fact be carrying a plane-load of spies who are said to be in the country for a secret meeting in Queenstown.

    The tail number – five small, black digits on the back of the plane – reveals the private jet belongs to none other than the United States' Central Intelligence Agency, also known as the CIA.

    The aircraft's arrival ties in with a top-secret meeting of the Five Eyes nations in Queenstown.

    Five Eyes is the name of the global spying alliance of the US, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

    Officials from the world's largest spy network are meeting in Arrowtown, near Queenstown, where a massive security operation is underway.

      Queenstown, where it's rumoured the meeting will take place this weekend.

      Leaders from the Five Eyes intelligence network will be meeting in New Zealand this weekend.

      Officials from the world's largest spy network - made up of the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand - will meet in Arrowtown, near Queenstown, where a massive security operation is underway.

      Government officials are refusing to confirm details or provide names, but police confirmed no former head of state would be visiting, after the rumour mill tipped the visitor could be Barack Obama, with Microsoft founder Bill Gates' name also put into the mix.

      FBI Director James Comey could be among those attending the conference, if speculation is correct.

      The Prime Minister's office said more than one VIP is coming to New Zealand. Responding to reports of a "very important person" visiting Queenstown this weekend, a spokesman for Bill English said several "senior officials from overseas" would attend a Government-hosted conference.

      "Due to specific security requirements we cannot comment further at this time. However, as police have pointed out they are not aware of a visit to Queenstown by a current or former head of state," he said.

      Australia's Director-General of Security Duncan Lewis could also attend.

      Australia's Director-General of Security Duncan Lewis, United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo are among those thought likely to attend.

      Security had been beefed up, and would include members of the police special tactics group and more than a dozen staff from Christchurch, the Otago Daily Times reported.

      The area has been the venue for such top-level meetings before. In November 2014 the military heads of the Five Eyes intelligence network met in Queenstown, with the presence of a US Air Force plane at the airport a tell-tale sign.

      NZ Chief of Defence Lieutenant General Tim Keating even tweeted a cosy pic of his counterparts enjoying a cup of tea during the meeting.


      Queenstown Lakes District Councillor Scott Stevens said speculation initially from residents of Millbrook and Arrowtown Business Group members was Obama was coming.

      That then changed and people speculated the arrival of Bill Gates, who is the world's richest man.

      "Bill Gates has been here on a number of occasions. He loves Arrowtown," Stevens said. "He does attract a large security detail."

      Stevens said there was a security "recce" late last year.

      The Hills director of golf Craig Palmer said someone was coming, but he knew nothing of their plans.

      "We do know he likes his golf though," Palmer said.

      Millbrook Resort marketing manager Ciara Craig had "no idea". Former US president Bill Clinton stayed there in 1999.

      A spokeswoman from exclusive Arrowtown restaurant Saffron said "no comment" when asked about a VIP for dinner this weekend.

      Queenstown Airport communications manager Jen Andrews said "in this instance unfortunately I'm not able to help".

      Police were tight-lipped. When quizzed about security for the person, Senior Sergeant Paula Enoka said police did not comment on operational matters.

      A spokeswoman said police were not aware of a visit to Queenstown by a former or current head of state. "In general New Zealand police does not discuss security matters."

      A prominent Queenstown source told Stuff on Wednesday morning reports of a former head of state jetting into the resort were false. "It is not a former head of state or ex-world leader," the source said.

The reason he gave for that recommendation was not that US wars in the Middle East are inevitably self-defeating and endless, but that it would reduce the "pressure on Assad, Iran, Russia and Hezbollah".

    The whole war on terrorism has been, in effect, a bait-and-switch operation from the beginning
    That suggestion that the US sell out its interest in counter-terrorism in the Middle East to gain some advantage in power competition with its adversaries was rightly attacked as cynical.

    But, in fact, the national security bureaucracies of the US – which many have come to call the "Deep State" - have been selling out their interests in counter-terrorism in order to pursue various adventures in the region ever since George W Bush declared a "Global War on Terrorism" in late 2001.

    The whole war on terrorism has been, in effect, a bait-and-switch operation from the beginning. The idea that US military operations were somehow going to make America safer after the 9/11 attacks was the bait. What has actually happened ever since then, however, is that senior officials at the Pentagon and the CIA have been sacrificing the interest of American people in weakening al-Qaeda in order to pursue their own institutional interests.

    All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA's human ("HUMINT") and electronic ("SIGINT") spies in the seven months leading up to France's 2012 presidential election. The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks as context for its forth coming CIA Vault 7 series. Named specifically as targets are the French Socialist Party (PS), the National Front (FN) and Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) together with current President Francois Hollande, then President Nicolas Sarkozy, current round one presidential front runner Marine Le Pen, and former presidential candidates Martine Aubry and Dominique Strauss-Khan.

    Nowrouzzadeh was an integral member of the team that drafted the much-maligned 2015 deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran over that theocratic dictatorship’s nuclear program. During the negotiations leading up to that deal, Breitbart News reported that Nowrouzzadeh previously had worked for the National-Iranian American Council, a lobbying group with connections to Iran’s Islamic fundamentalist leadership.

    According to Politico, Nowrouzzadeh has been reassigned to the State Department’s Office of Iranian Affairs. As a career service employee, Nowrouzzadeh is protected from outright dismissal over political leanings.

    Julian Assange. (Aug. 27, 2013). Op-ed: Google and the NSA: Who’s holding the ‘shit-bag’ now? WikiLeaks.

    It was revealed last week, thanks to Edward Snowden, that Google and other US tech companies received millions of dollars from the NSA for their compliance with the PRISM mass surveillance system.

    So just how close is Google to the US securitocracy? Back in 2011 I had a meeting with Eric Schmidt, the then-Chairman of Google, who came out to see me with three other people while I was under house arrest. You might suppose that coming to see me was gesture that he and the other big boys at Google were secretly on our side, that they support what we at WikiLeaks are struggling for: justice, government transparency, and privacy for individuals. But that would be a false supposition. Their agenda was much more complex, and as we found out, was inextricable from that of the US State Department. The full audio and transcript of our meeting is available online here.

    The pretext for their visit was that Schmidt was then researching a new book, a banal tome which has since come out as The New Digital Age. My less than enthusiastic review of this book was published in the New York Times in late May of this year. On the back of that book are a series of pre-publication endorsements: Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Michael Hayden (former head of the CIA and NSA) and Tony Blair. Inside the book Henry Kissinger appears once again, this time given pride of place in the acknowledgements.

    Josh Meyer. (Apr. 24, 2017). Obama’s hidden Iran deal giveaway - By dropping charges against major arms targets, the administration infuriated Justice Department officials — and undermined its own counterproliferation task forces. Politico.

    When President Barack Obama announced the “one-time gesture” of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who “were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses” last year, his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehran’s pledge to free five Americans.

    “Iran had a significantly higher number of individuals, of course, at the beginning of this negotiation that they would have liked to have seen released,” one senior Obama administration official told reporters in a background briefing arranged by the White House, adding that “we were able to winnow that down to these seven individuals, six of whom are Iranian-Americans.”

    In reality, some of them were accused by Obama’s own Justice Department of posing threats to national security. Three allegedly were part of an illegal procurement network supplying Iran with U.S.-made microelectronics with applications in surface-to-air and cruise missiles like the kind Tehran test-fired recently, prompting a still-escalating exchange of threats with the Trump administration. Another was serving an eight-year sentence for conspiring to supply Iran with satellite technology and hardware. As part of the deal, U.S. officials even dropped their demand for $10 million that a jury said the aerospace engineer illegally received from Tehran.

    And in a series of unpublicized court filings, the Justice Department dropped charges and international arrest warrants against 14 other men, all of them fugitives. The administration didn’t disclose their names or what they were accused of doing, noting only in an unattributed, 152-word statement about the swap that the U.S. “also removed any Interpol red notices and dismissed any charges against 14 Iranians for whom it was assessed that extradition requests were unlikely to be successful.”

    Three of the fugitives allegedly sought to lease Boeing aircraft for an Iranian airline that authorities say had supported Hezbollah, the U.S.-designated terrorist organization. A fourth, Behrouz Dolatzadeh, was charged with conspiring to buy thousands of U.S.-made assault rifles and illegally import them into Iran.

    A New York Times report on Saturday claimed that FBI Director James Comey decided to reveal last year that he was re-opening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton because he suspected Attorney General Loretta Lynch was covering up for her — and because an email found by Russian hackers seemed to support those suspicions.

    The Times’ investigative report suggests that a U.S. intelligence agency managed to intercept some of what Russian hackers were stealing — and that one document, “described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far.”

    According to the Times, Comey feared that Lynch — who had insisted the Clinton probe be referred to as a “matter” and not as an “investigation,” and who suggested it the investigation was not criminal when, in fact, it was — would declare the case closed, and then Russian hackers would leak the document to undermine the FBI’s image of independence.

    Did your mother ever use the phrase, “Don’t cut your nose off to spite your face”? If you are unfamiliar with the phrase, it simply means that one should not enact revenge on a third party if it is going to harm oneself and this seems to be exactly what all forms of major social media, plus Google, are presently doing.

    As a caveat, please allow me to mention that articles on media don’t do well. However, this is one article you are going to read. If Google is permitted to continue on their path of extreme censorship, everything you will soon see, hear and read will be controlled. And when the New World Order is fully rolled out, you will have no clue that you have just entered Satan’s realm and you will lose total control.

    Led by Google, one of the most evil corporate entities on the face of the Earth, this monolithic corporation harming their own mainstream media (MSM) outlets so they can also drive the Independent Media (i.e. alt media) out of business.

    Presently, most alt media (i.e. the Independent Media) are bleeding money. Most sights are not coming close to a financial break even point because of extreme media censorship of their ideas and written expressions. For example, at Youtube, owned by Google, is demonizing any discussions of war, civil war, natural disasters (?), economic issues, mention of any controversial (ie sensitive events), etc.

    In other words, the alt media cannot write about the news. Fox and CNN’s social media outlets have largely been left untouched. However, I have discovered that this is changing as well. More on this development a little late in this article.

    This Obama Administration program and the extent of the fraud involved was uncovered accidentally by an attorney in the course of their legal research. Disheartened by the fraud and the extensive financial burden it places on hard working Americans, they were determined to make this fraud known along with this statement.

    There is nothing joyful in uncovering a fraud, especially one so vast and by persons in positions of trust. This wasn’t just a blow to law abiding Americans, it’s a full frontal assault on integrity. It was done at a time when many Americans found themselves at a critical juncture. They’re working harder, but getting poorer. For valuing personal accountability and fairness, they’re berated. It’s moved many Americans beyond agonizing over “how are we going to get by?”, to asking “why bother?”

    And why should they? How does one continue to prop up a system that punishes and demeans the contributor? A system that takes advantage of those that behave with integrity while rewarding and revering the lazy and those committed to destroying the faction that feeds them?

    They complain that wages aren’t growing, but they’re constantly replenishing the unskilled labor pool, thereby depressing wages. Then they expand the Earned Income tax credit, which forces taxpayers to subsidize businesses who will only pay minimum wage. They implement policies that force the exportation of skilled work, and allow abuse of an expanded H1B visa program that forces qualified Americans in tech positions to compete with cheaper foreign labor in the U.S.

    They have no policies on Tech colleges, where there has been a massive influx of foreign students, who are edging out in large numbers, talented, highly qualified, and much needed American students.

    And now this. What an affront to our families that denied themselves more children because it’s how the financially responsible behave. Because the economy demanded limited family size, we’re told we must import and support entire families for whom that wasn’t a consideration.

    As you’ll see in the short presentation, Obama didn’t just open the border, he opened it and obligated us to pay for all who entered, and their children, for their entire lives. It didn’t just include food stamps. It included cash, health care, housing, and free college. Yes, in 2014 alone, 58,000 children came across the border. All 58,000 are entitled to free college.

    If this makes you angry, just wait until you see what else they did under this program.

    Do not ask for whom the liberal pays, the liberal is f*cking you.

The best politicians learn to cherish civil service advice which points out the flaws in their arguments. The worst surround themselves with sycophants who create a micro-climate which wraps a warm embrace around their worst tendencies.

    This idea of “speaking truth unto power” was central to the creation of the Magna Carta 800 years ago. It was then that large land-owners in England had the courage to challenge the taxes that the King was imposing. We often speak about the legacy it brought; the democratic development it led to; and the global influence it continues to have to this day.

    Federal Judge William Orrick III, who on Tuesday blocked President Trump's order to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, reportedly bundled hundreds of thousands of dollars for President Barack Obama.

    Orrick, of the Northern District of California, issued an injunction against the Trump administration after the city of San Francisco and county of Santa Clara sued over the president's plan to withhold federal funds from municipalities that harbor illegal immigrants.

    As reported:

    The ruling from U.S. District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco said that Trump's order targeted broad categories of federal funding for sanctuary governments, and that plaintiffs challenging the order were likely to succeed in proving it unconstitutional.

    The decision will block the measure for now, while the federal lawsuit works its way through the courts.

    The news comes on the heels of the Department of Justice threatening on Friday to cut off funding to eight so-called “sanctuary cities,” unless they were able to provide proof to the federal government that they weren’t looking the other way when it came to undocumented immigrants.

    The same judge issued a restraining order in 2015 against the advocacy group responsible for undercover videos purporting to show Planned Parenthood employees plotting to sell baby organs.

    At the time, The Federalist found that Orrick raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated more than $30,000 to groups supporting him.

    Julian Assange is editor of WikiLeaks.

    Mike Pompeo, in his first speech as director of the CIA, chose to declare war on free speech rather than on the United States’ actual adversaries. He went after WikiLeaks, where I serve as editor, as a “non-state hostile intelligence service.” In Pompeo’s worldview, telling the truth about the administration can be a crime — as Attorney General Jeff Sessions quickly underscored when he described my arrest as a “priority.” News organizations reported that federal prosecutors are weighing whether to bring charges against members of WikiLeaks, possibly including conspiracy, theft of government property and violating the Espionage Act.

    All this speech to stifle speech comes in reaction to the first publication in the start of WikiLeaks’ “Vault 7” series. Vault 7 has begun publishing evidence of remarkable CIA incompetence and other shortcomings. This includes the agency’s creation, at a cost of billions of taxpayer dollars, of an entire arsenal of cyber viruses and hacking programs — over which it promptly lost control and then tried to cover up the loss. These publications also revealed the CIA’s efforts to infect the public’s ubiquitous consumer products and automobiles with computer viruses.

    Former Obama White house Press Secretary Josh Earnest has said that the former president will speak out against the current White House incumbent if he feels that Trump crosses “clear red lines”.

    Earnest made the comments during an interview on MSNBC, when asked about Obama’s previous promise to get involved if he sees America’s “core values” as being under threat from the Trump administration.

    When the U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted two years ago to impose net neutrality regulations over internet service providers, Ajit Pai was in the Republican minority and issued a 67-page dissent.

    Pai is now chairman of the agency and about to begin the counterattack he’s long anticipated, moving to end the FCC’s strong legal authority over broadband providers and sparking a debate that pits old-line telecom companies against Silicon Valley upstarts.

    Kristen V. Brown. (Apr. 25, 2017). Leaked Documents Reveal the NSA Spying on Scientists to Find 'Nefarious' Genetic Research. Gizmodo.

    A new document made public this week via Edward Snowden’s leak of NSA documents reveals a fascinating aim of signals intelligence program: The agency, it turns out, monitored international scientific developments in hopes of detecting “nefarious” genetic engineering projects more than a decade ago.

    SIGINT is intelligence collected by monitoring electronic and communications signals. In 2013, documents leaked by NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed the extent of the agency’s reliance on this kind of intelligence to provide insight into the capabilities and intentions of foreign entities, as well as domestic targets. In the years since, documents have continued to trickle out of the Snowden leak that shed additional light on those efforts.

    One such document made public by The Intercept this week describes a use of NSA signals intelligence not previously known to the public. In 2004, an NSA cryptanalyst intern described looking for information about genetic sequencing in the signals intelligence collected by the agency.

    “The ultimate goals of this project are to gain general knowledge about genetic engineering research activity by foreign entities,” she wrote, “and to identify laboratories and/or individuals who may be involved in nefarious use of genetic research.”

    Cristina Laila. (Apr. 25, 2017). Former Obama Official: Climate Data Purposely Manipulated to Influence Public Opinion and Policy. Gateway Pundit.

    Former Energy Department Undersecretary, Steven Koonin confirmed what we already knew to be true. The Obama administration purposely manipulated ‘climate change’ data to influence public opinion and policy.

    Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.

    “What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

    He pointed to a National Climate Assessment in 2014 showing hurricane activity has increased from 1980 as an illustration of how federal agencies fudged climate data. Koonin said the NCA’s assessment was technically incorrect.

    Julian Assange. (Apr. 28, 2017). Scribbles. WikiLeaks.

    28 April, 2017

    Today, April 28th 2017, WikiLeaks publishes the documentation and source code for CIA's "Scribbles" project, a document-watermarking preprocessing system to embed "Web beacon"-style tags into documents that are likely to be copied by Insiders, Whistleblowers, Journalists or others. The released version (v1.0 RC1) is dated March, 1st 2016 and classified SECRET//ORCON/NOFORN until 2066.

    Scribbles is intended for off-line preprocessing of Microsoft Office documents. For reasons of operational security the user guide demands that "[t]he Scribbles executable, parameter files, receipts and log files should not be installed on a target machine, nor left in a location where it might be collected by an adversary."

    According to the documentation, "the Scribbles document watermarking tool has been successfully tested on [...] Microsoft Office 2013 (on Windows 8.1 x64), documents from Office versions 97-2016 (Office 95 documents will not work!) [and d]ocuments that are not be locked forms, encrypted, or password-protected". But this limitation to Microsoft Office documents seems to create problems: "If the targeted end-user opens them up in a different application, such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice, the watermark images and URLs may be visible to the end-user. For this reason, always make sure that the host names and URL components are logically consistent with the original content. If you are concerned that the targeted end-user may open these documents in a non-Microsoft Office application, please take some test documents and evaluate them in the likely application before deploying them."

    Security researches and forensic experts will find more detailed information on how watermarks are applied to documents in the source code, which is included in this publication as a zipped archive.


    Weeping Angel
    21 April, 2017

    Today, April 21st 2017, WikiLeaks publishes the User Guide for CIA's "Weeping Angel" tool - an implant designed for Samsung F Series Smart Televisions. Based on the "Extending" tool from the MI5/BTSS, the implant is designed to record audio from the built-in microphone and egress or store the data.

    The classification marks of the User Guide document hint that is was originally written by the british MI5/BTSS and later shared with the CIA. Both agencies collaborated on the further development of the malware and coordinated their work in Joint Development Workshops.
