oh, you thought the empire runs open and honest legal procedures? read the following about the assange situation/court process, and then tell us how a combination of kafka and alice in wonderland will provide any redress for any but the empire;

The first week of the Julian Assange extradition trial has concluded, to be resumed on May 18th. If you haven’t been following the proceedings closely, let me sum up what you missed:
The prosecution is working to extradite Assange to the US under a US-UK extradition treaty, a treaty whose contents the prosecution now says we should ignore because they explicitly forbid political extraditions. The prosecution says it doesn’t matter anyway because Assange is not a political actor, yet in 2010 the US government that’s trying to extradite him labeled him a political actor in those exact words. Assange’s trial is taking place in a maximum security prison for dangerous violent offenders because that’s where he’s being jailed for no stated reason and despite having no history of violence, which means he’s kept separate from the courtroom in a sound-resistant safety enclosure where he can’t hear or participate in his own trial. The magistrate judging the case says he can’t be allowed out of the enclosure since he’s considered dangerous, because he’s been arbitrarily placed in a prison for dangerous violent offenders. The magistrate keeps telling Assange to stop speaking up during his trial and to speak through his lawyers, yet he’s being actively prevented from communicating with his lawyers.
Make sense?
Not even a tiny bit?
Oh. Okay. Let me more..........
julian assange is being railroaded into life in prison for journalism. free speech is on its way out and his situation is the harbinger of that demise;

The extradition trial for journalist and publisher Julian Assange is nothing but a travesty. His brutal persecution by American and British authorities is a shocking indictment of these Western states and their hypocritical pretensions about professing democratic rights and rule of law.
Assange may be the one sitting in the dock. But the whole world can see that it is not he who is really on trial, but rather the so-called authorities who are persecuting him.
The 48-year-old Australian-born founder of Wikileaksis being prosecuted for one simple reason. He exposed war crimes and global corruption perpetrated by the U.S. government and its Western allies. The abysmal fate he finds himself in stems from that concise truth.
Ever since Assange published war crimes committed by the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2010-2011, he has been hounded for revenge. Despite confinement for seven years at an embassy in London, seeking asylum, Assange went on to expose more colossal corruption such as illegal global spying against governments and citizens by the U.S. state. For these “crimes”, he has been hunted down, mercilessly.
In order to conceal the travesty, the American government is demanding that Assange be extradited from Britain to face criminal charges of espionage and computer hacking. If he is extradited, which will be decided after further court hearings in Britain later this year, Assange could be facing 175 years in prison. This week was the opening of the extradition more.........
its probably here but you won't notice because the federalies and tv will tell you all is fine, until, it isn't;

Exactly a month ago I warned that the Corona Virus outbreak was going to pop the “Everything Bubble.” I did something fairly subtle. I buried my main message under a whole heap of cow manure. It doesn’t make a rat’s ass if I was right or wrong about calling for a market crash in October or the Fed dumping piles of new crisp $100 bills onto a bonfire in September.
This time I’m going to put my message right at the top so no one can miss it. I quote from the January 27th piece, “This has the potential for being the biggest mass casualty event in world history. At the very least it will take down the financial system as the world economy grinds to a halt with efforts to contain the virus.”
In short, the world is fucked.
I didn’t want most people to understand that when I said it. If they had, there would be panic and you wouldn’t be able to buy food, fuel or water. 
Face it, 97% of people want to believe all the crap handed out by their governments. Maybe 3% are willing to think for themselves.  I’ve written a couple of books about investing and finance where I tried to show how to make money once you learn to think for yourself. There are no gurus or experts, only people who can think.
I aimed my piece a month ago at the 3%. Because if anyone was following the NEWS (?) from China, the virus is an utter disaster and that’s true in a developed nation. Once it spreads to Africa, as it surely will, it is going to be the biggest catastrophe the continent has ever faced with potentially the deaths of tens or hundreds of millions. 
The numbers from China seem to indicate a death rate of above 2% for those under hospital treatment but far higher for the vastly greater number of people who caught it and eventually fell over dead. The Chinese government tossed them in bags and burned them. Eventually they will be putting them in landfills because they can’t fry them fast more........
its most entertaining for me to read the constant stream of foolishness about russians mucking about in 'our elections' as its fully absurd. the list of elections the empire has fully broken is too long for me to attempt to list but my favorite is the time magazine cover with yeltsin on it as it covered the fully open involvement of the empire in that russian election;

Those hapless individuals who run the United States are again slipping into a fantasy world where Americans are besieged by imaginary threats coming from both inside and outside the country. Of course, it is particularly convenient to warn of foreign threats, as it makes the people in government seem relevant and needed, but one might recommend that the tune be changed as it is getting a bit boring. After all, there are only so many hours in the day and Russian President Vladimir Putin must pause occasionally to eat or sleep, so the plotting to destroy American democracy must be on hold at least some of the time.
Yes, anonymous sources and the guys and gals who made the Iraq war a reality are now claiming that the Kremlin is at it again! Hints over the past year that Putin might try to replay 2016 in 2020 only do it better this time have now been confirmed! Per one news report the enemy is already at the gates: “U.S. intelligence officials told lawmakers last week that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election campaign by aiming to cast doubt on the integrity of the vote and boost President Donald Trump’s re-election.”
And there’s more! In a New York Times article headlined “Same Goal, Different Playbook: Why Russia Would Support Trump and Sanders: Vladimir Putin is eager both to take the sheen off U.S. democracy and for a counterpart who is less likely to challenge his territorial and nuclear ambitions,” it was revealed that the Kremlin is intending to also help Bernie Sanders, so whichever way the election goes they more.......  
there are a lot more aspects to the beer virus than you may have considered. in this article engdahl shows you how you may soon be out of any drugs your doctor prescribes, or the hospitals can find;

The grave risks and dangers in the process of worldwide out-sourcing and so-called globalization of the past 30 years or so are becoming starkly clear as the ongoing health emergency across China threatens vital world supply chains from China to the rest of the world. While much attention is focused on the risks to smartphone components or auto manufacture via supplies of key parts from China or to the breakdown of oil deliveries in the last weeks, there is a danger that will soon become alarmingly clear in terms of global health care system .
If the forced shutdown of China manufacture continues for many weeks longer, the world, could begin to experience shortages or lack of vital medicines and medical supplies. The reason is that over the past two decades much of the production of medicines and medical supplies such as surgical masks have been outsourced to China or simply made in China by Chinese companies at far cheaper prices, forcing Western companies out of business.
Sole source China
According to research and US Congressional hearings, something like 80% of present medicines consumed in the United States are produced in China. This includes Chinese companies and foreign drug companies that have outsourced their drug manufacture in joint ventures with Chinese partners. According to Rosemary Gibson of the Hastings Center bioethics research institute, who authored a book in 2018 on the theme, the dependency is more than alarming.
Gibson cites medical newsletters giving the estimate that today some 80% of all pharmaceutical active ingredients in the USA are made in China. “It’s not just the ingredients. It’s also the chemical precursors, the chemical building blocks used to make the active ingredients. We are dependent on China for the chemical building blocks to make a whole category of antibiotics… known as cephalosporins. They are used in the United States thousands of times every day for people with very serious infections.”
The made in China drugs today include most antibiotics, birth control pills, blood pressure medicines such as valsartan, blood thinners such as heparin, and various cancer drugs. It includes such common medicines as penicillin, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), and aspirin. The list also includes medications to treat HIV, Alzheimer’s disease, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, cancer, depression, epilepsy, among others. A recent Department of Commerce study found that 97 percent of all antibiotics in the United States came from China.
Few of these drugs are labeled “made in China” as drug companies in the USA are not required to reveal their sourcing. Rosemary Gibson states that the dependency on China for medicines and other health products is so great that, “…if China shut the door tomorrow, within a couple of months, hospitals in the United States would cease to function.” That may not be so far more.........
this is one way in which those in charge, who we never know are, increase their control over you. this is happening with variations in iraq and india. there are probably more but those are the two i know of for sure. kissenger spoke of controlling the food supply when he was with nixon. how deep does this go;

This article was originally published in 2016.
In order to receive development assistance, Tanzania has to give Western agribusiness full freedom and give enclosed protection for patented seeds. “Eighty percent of the seeds are being shared and sold in an informal system between neighbors, friends and family. The new law criminalizes the practice in Tanzania,” says Michael Farrelly of TOAM, an organic farming movement in Tanzania.
In order to get developmental assistance, Tanzania amended its legislation, which should give commercial investors faster and better access to agricultural land as well as a very strong protection of intellectual property rights.
‘If you buy seeds from Syngenta or Monsanto under the new legislation, they will retain the intellectual property rights. If you save seeds from your first harvest, you can use them only on your own piece of land for non-commercial purposes. You’re not allowed to share them with your neighbors or with your sister-in-law in a different village, and you cannot sell them for sure. But that’s the entire foundation of the seed system in Africa’, says Michael Farrelly.
Under the new law, Tanzanian farmers risk a prison sentence of at least 12 years or a fine of over €205,300, or both, if they sell seeds that are not certified.
‘That’s an amount that a Tanzanian farmer cannot even start to imagine. The average wage is still less than 2 US dollars a day’, says Janet Maro, head of Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania (SAT).
Under pressure of the G8
Tanzania applied the legislation concerning intellectual property rights on seeds as a condition for receiving development assistance through the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition (NAFSN). The NAFSN was launched in 2012 by the G8 with the goal to help 50 million people out of poverty and hunger in the ten African partner countries through a public-private partnership. The initiative receives the support of the EU, the US, the UK, the World Bank and the Bill & Melinda Gates more.........
video-rebel usually has longer periods between posts but this is quick on the heels of another so i missed its release day. so far all i've read from this individual is accurate so the predictions about the beer virus are worth watching;

Perhaps I should rewrite the title above so it is more self-explanatory. Liberal Democrats will destroy the US West Coast because they will not stop the homeless from defecating in the streets and spreading fatal communicable diseases. Destruction to be Apocalyptic within 14 months.
Why 14 months? Because Vitamin D-3 is the sunshine vitamin and is depleted during the winter. 14 months would be the end of winter and just passed spring break 2021.
Half of all the homeless in America live in California because unlimited legal and illegal immigration has made the former Golden State the most unlivable hellhole imaginable. Three of the 4 cities with the most homeless in California are in the north, San Francisco, Santa Rosa and San Jose. The fourth is Los Angeles. This is not the first plague to hit California. A doctor in San Jose told me they had 2 cases a month of bubonic plague from illegal aliens. And a doctor in LA has been trying to raise hell over communicable diseases amongst the homeless which would include bubonic plague.
The homeless might not yet have the Wuhan virus. But when the first man does get it, his feces will be aerosolized and allowed to infect workers, shoppers, conventioneers and tourists rushing past the stench to get to where they were going. San Francisco has 265,000 more people commuting into the city than out. One in ten SF Bay Area workers  commutes more an hour every morning and every evening. The reason for this is high rents due to more..........

five minutes of brother nathanael speaking about bernie and guns;
some times the 'thin blue line' is absolutely ignorant and fearful, as the following story will show you. the curious thing i think, is that they also usually refuse to take responsibility for their actions during times they demand that others do so, like those they are attempting to arrest;

Caldwell, ID — Cops in Idaho managed an epic act of incompetence when they shot up and teargassed a woman’s home — even though she had given them the key — after initiating an hours-long standoff with an empty home, occupied only by the family pet.
“Basically, they had a standoff with a dog,” Shaniz West’s attorney said at the time. Now, after fighting the corrupt system that left this innocent mother and her children homeless, she is fighting her case all the way up to the Supreme Court, thanks to the Institute of Justice.
The question brought forth before the Supreme Court of the United States is this: If you tell cops they can search your home, can they legally stand outside and fire dozens of tear gas grenades inside and destroy everything you own, and do so with impunity?
So far, the answer has been yes they can. Hopefully, however, that is all about to change.
West’s nightmare began in 2014 when she told her ex-boyfriend he needed to leave her home. She told him that she was leaving and when she came back, he needed to be gone. This happened, and Fabian Salinas — a wanted felon — took his belongings and left.
When West, who was six months pregnant, returned with her children, an eight-year-old and six-month-old, a slew of Caldwell police SWAT officers surrounded her more........

if you believe that the system, police included, will serve and protect you, and others, i suggest you read all of the following;

New York, NY — The death of 8-year-old Thomas Valva shocked the nation last month when it was discovered his New York cop father was alleged to have beat him and starved him before throwing him into an unheated garage where he froze to death. Now, as the investigation continues, we are learning that authorities were warned by multiple people on multiple occasions that NYPD officer Michael Valva was horrifically abusing his children, and no one acted. In fact, the only actions taken were against the mother, and helped Valva continue the abuse.
Eight-year-old Thomas died of hypothermia on January 17 after he was allegedly starved, beaten and locked outside overnight by his NYPD officer father. Valva allegedly washed the body of his autistic child in an attempt to warm the corpse, then lied to cops by claiming the boy fell in the driveway. On Jan. 24, Valva and his fiancee Angela Pollina were arrested and charged with murder.
It has since come to light that Justyna Zukbo-Valva, Thomas’ mother, had filed multiple complaints — with physical evidence — alleging the abuse. Instead of helping her authorities simply looked the other way. Not only was she never given help, Zukbo-Valva was treated like she was the abuser and lost custody as the true monster continued his horrifying treatment of his children.
According to the NY Daily News, who received the documents from Zukbo-Valva, after losing custody, this mother feared for the safety of her children, fought to save them, and was ignored and punished until Thomas was tortured to more.........
postings of two former cia agents in a row, and in this one, at the end, you can see a video that is at the base of the charges against assange. evidently its a security problem for the empire to have its crimes revealed;

The CIA and Pentagon are saying, in effect, “Trust Us.” What could possibly go wrong? — aside from a publisher of accurate information spending the rest of his life in prison.
We are about to see how malleable the British Court system is to diktat from Washington. Will the British embrace the flimsiest of circumstantial “evidence” from U.S. security services that have axes to grind?
Will British officials turn their back on 800 years of progress on the human rights wrested from King John at Runnymede? Are there today no “English Nobles” to thwart the obscene “legal” proceedings aimed at extraditing WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange to a U.S. prison for publishing the truth about U.S. and UK war crimes?
At Monday’s court hearing in London, James Lewis QC, argued the U.S. case using information the U.S. gave him from “secret sources” in Iraq and Afghanistan. Here’s Mr. Lewis:
“The U.S. is aware of sources, whose unredacted names and other identifying information were contained in classified documents published by WikiLeaks, who subsequently disappeared, although the US can’t prove at this point that their disappearance was the result of being outed by WikiLeaks.” more........
if you want to know more about how bizarre things are getting in the white house, read this by a former cia agent;

Here in the Land of Oz, otherwise known as Washington, one continues to run into people who should know better who insist that they have a friend in the White House who confirms that President Donald Trump is really a man of peace being obstructed as he seeks to withdraw the United States from senseless wars in Asia. They argue that the Deep State or Establishment, to include the media, are so blinded by Trump Derangement Syndrome that they cannot get behind his policies even when they would be good for Americans.
The problem with that argument is that there have been clear instances when the president could have followed through on pledges to reduce troop levels or withdraw completely from war zones before reversing himself and doubling down rather than doing the right thing. One need only cite the increases in numbers of combatants in both the Middle East and Afghanistan and the reversal of an initial decision to stage a complete withdrawal from Syria which instead turned into a move to occupy the country’s oil fields.
Others might argue that Trump reveals himself through his quixotic decision making and his willingness to play brinksmanship with powerful opponents as if he were upping the ante over a real estate transaction. Withdrawing with the JCPOA nuclear agreement with Iran was a major blunder, recognized as such by nearly every country in the world with the usual exception of Israel, while Trump’s repeated offers to talk with the Ayatollah reflect willful ignorance of Iranian political dynamics. The White House apparently considered the assassination of an Iranian Major General to be an inducement to the Persians to come to the table to discuss a broad range of more........
this is a short hornberger i post in its entirety. he is spot on in this short essay;

Every time you go to the airport and are forced to undergo the TSA screening process, including the possibility of pat-down searches, keep in mind that this is for one reason alone: to ensure that the CIA and the Pentagon continue to have the “right” to intervene and meddle in the affairs of other nations. That’s what the destruction of our liberty and privacy are all about —f oreign interventionism. It is not about protecting our freedom because no one is threatening to invade and conquer the United States.
The destruction of our liberty and privacy are justified under the rubric that the terrorists are coming to do bad things to us. But the reason that foreigners want to do bad things to us is because the CIA and the Pentagon insist on their “right” to continue doing bad things to foreigners with their coups, interventions, invasions, occupations, assassinations, kidnappings, indefinite detention, and torture.
If all U.S. troops and CIA agents in foreign lands were brought home and discharged or fired and sent into the private sector — that is, if all U.S. interventionism were to cease and desist — life for Americans would return to normal. No more anti-American terrorism and, therefore, no more war on terrorism. No more PATRIOT Act, no more mass secret surveillance, no more Homeland Security, and no more TSA.
Which will it be: liberty and privacy or continued interventionism and continued destruction of our rights and liberties in the name of keeping us “safe and secure” from the threats that their interventionism produces? .........source

dammed if you do, and dammed if you don't. used to be it mattered to me, but now i don't give a damn;

the day liberty died: israel's attack on the uss liberty, in eleven minutes;
it seems that there's only one truth allowed in the empire;

contrary to what 'our free press' continues to pound into your head, an armed citizen will be better off than an unarmed one under most all situations, and here is a good bit of evidence in support of that;

t’s no secret that mainstream press coverage of gun ownership in the United States tends to be in favor of gun control – especially when those reporting on the topic are not firearm owners themselves. Journalists focus on how many people are killed by guns, how many children get their hands on improperly stored firearms, and how many deranged individuals go on shooting sprees.
This anti-gun news bias is widespread among the “urban elite” who have very little personal experience with guns and yet write for influential newspapers like The New York TimesWashington Post, etc. Despite this bias, law-abiding private citizens owning guns does have positive impacts on American society that often go unreported – many of which are more..........
oh, you didn't know? this article will show you some evidence that the empire, with the hildabeest out in front, are responsible for the syrian war, and it was done for israel;

This article was originally published in 2018.
A leaked Hillary Clinton email confirms that the Obama administration, with Hillary at the helm, orchestrated a civil war in Syria to benefit Israel.   
The new Wikileaks release shows the then Secretary of State ordering a war in Syria in order to overthrow the government and oust President Assad, claiming it was the “best way to help Israel”.
The document was one of many unclassified by the US Department of State under case number F-2014-20439, Doc No. C05794498, following the uproar over Clinton’s private email server kept at her house while she served as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.
Although the Wikileaks transcript dates the email as December 31, 2000, this is an error on their part, as the contents of the email (in particular the reference to May 2012 talks between Iran and the west over its nuclear program in Istanbul) show that the email was in fact sent on December 31, 2012.
The email makes it clear that it has been US policy from the very beginning to violently overthrow the Syrian government—and specifically to do this because it is in Israel’s more..........
what would you do if cops showed up at your house, killed your dog, and then commanded you, at pain of assault and arrest, to cut its head off;

Crawford County, GA — A horrifying video was submitted to the Free Thought Project previously showing two Georgia cops force a father to cut his own dog’s head off because one of them had just shot it. After battling this case for over two years, the innocent father who was forced to do the unspeakable is finally nearing  closure now that a federal judge ruled that his rights under the U.S. Constitution were violated. 
The family filed a lawsuit for damages sustained when police shot and killed their dog and then forced the father to cut off its head to bring it to the health department.
“The court agrees that Goodwin was right to be mad and upset when faced with the indignity of removing his pet’s head — clearly a disgusting, humiliating and revolting choice that no one should have to endure,“ U.S. District Court Judge Tripp Self said in the ruling on Friday, according to the Macon Telegram.
Joe Nate Goodwin and his wife, Natasha Dakon filed the lawsuit seeking more than a half-million in damages from that extremely disturbing incident.
“Under extreme emotional duress and distress, and under threat of incarceration and physical harm, Plaintiff Goodwin was forced to decapitate the dog with a knife,” the lawsuit states.
As the AJC notes, in addition to the “great physical and mental pain and suffering,” which has required counseling, Goodwin lost his job as a result of the actions, the lawsuit more.......
my first father in law was a vp for mitre corp which is a cia front. i've been watching the debate on whether chemtrails are real or just contrails. they are really chemtrails and don't do anything for us beneficial;

Evergreen Air is a CIA front company for chemtrail operations within the US, based out of Marana Air Park near Tucson Arizona and McMinville Oregon, near Portland.
A major missing piece of a grand conspiracy has been targeted by a drunk pilot. In a small town 30 miles east of the Pacific Ocean in Oregon is the center of a major global operation. 
At a bar in McMinnville, Oregon, an inebriated pilot attempted to impress one of the pretty ladies with tales of his secret mission.
The pilot’s pathetic attempt to portray himself as a Sean Connery or Daniel Craig caused him to (ante up) his importance and spill the secrets of the CIA’s asset Evergreen International Aviation.

Iran Now has Second Most Deaths from Coronavirus – Weird Coincidence!" (Anglin).  "US State Department Blaming Russians for Coronavirus “Disinfo” (Are They Talking About Me???)" (Anglin):
"With regards to the Coronavirus – I don’t actually know that this is a US bioweapon, nor do I state for a fact that it is a US bioweapon.
What I have said is this:
  • DARPA was doing research on a “novel Coronavirus” to be used as a bioweapon
  • The claim that the virus escaped from a Chinese lab – promoted by CIA shill Tom Cotton – was a hoax spread by State Department fake news outlets (why would they feel a need to preempt the bioweapon angle unless they were worried about someone proving it was not a natural virus? And how would they know it was not a natural virus?)
  • The disease appears to primarily affect Chinese people (though we do know now whites can contract it)
  • There is no valid explanation of where this came from (Chinese people have been eating bats for thousands of years)
  • The US government and Mike Pompeo in particular are obsessed with attacking China
  • The US State Department and the CIA were 100% responsible for the attempted color revolution in Hong Kong
  • As soon as the color revolution in Hong Kong fizzled out, all of a sudden this virus popped up
  • The virus has done extreme damage to the Chinese economy at the exact time that the US State Department was calling for attacks on the Chinese economy
All of that leads me to believe that the simplest and most obvious explanation for the virus is that it is a bioweapon released by the US government.
I will not state that I know this for a fact, because I do not know this for a fact. But given how hard it is to get facts while living in an information control grid, we have to rely on informed speculation as we attempt to understand what is going on." more.......
i have always re-posted this bloggers items, in part because i had knowledge and awareness of his subjects, and knew them to be accurate. this time i know virtually nothing about what he posts but re-post because in the past he's always been spot on, so i suggest you give great consideration to him on this subject;

A few observations.
Deagel Drops US 2025 Population Forecast To 54 Million by Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline TDC Note – The original chart Deagel produced, just a few shorts years ago, showed the U.S. population dropping to 65 million now it is revised to 54 million.
Maybe this famous Deagel population forecast was cognizant of a series of plagues and even a possible Civil War in America. A population of 56 million in America would be in line with the Georgia Guidestones which tell us the world should only have 500 million people. Americans would be around 11% of total world population.
Is it a coincidence that the virus was released in Wuhan which was also the pilot program location for China’s 5G 60 MHZ nationwide network? Hundreds of scientists tried to tell the UN that 5G networks would greatly harm human health. We do know that any virus will strike people with pre existing conditions the hardest. Maybe 5G 60 MHZ networks were a pre existing condition for everyone in China.
WHO did not bother to quarantine the Chinese who fled China directly which suggests either incompetence or a willful intent to spread the pandemic. Wealthy Chinese got out of China and bought airline tickets to destinations all over the world from Asian cities outside the Mainland. China has 360,000 students studying in the US and Canada.
Dr Paul Cottrell who practices in Manhattan is getting information from inside insurance companies, from the military, from family members with some kind of virus and from nurses treating patients. The CDC is low balling the number of cases. They are not testing people with the flu for the Wuhan virus. There are a lot more Americans with this virus than the CDC wants us to know more......

the russians have been coming since 1917, to hear some speak of it but i'm sure that by now you've figured out that it is just another boogieman to wave at you at bedtime. then the russians got trump elected, but then we found out they didn't but now they're getting bernie elected, or maybe not. kunstler has been saying for a long time that we've been heading in the direction we now find ourselves with just in time manufacturing now facing no parts;

The metaphysical question, what does Russia want, is sounding a lot like the cosmic conundrum posed by Sigmund Freud: what do women want? Is Vladimir Putin transitioning to “become” a woman? It seems like the hormones are getting to him. One day he’s got a crush on Donald Trump, the next day he’s mashed on Bernie Sanders. At least according to America’s Intel Community. Or was that just Rep. Adam Schiff’s spin on the sigint served up to his House Intel Committee by one Shelby Pierson, “a senior intelligence official responsible for overseeing the issues of election interference,” as The New York Times described her. It looked, for a moment, like Mr. Schiff was trying to tee up a new killer-diller impeachment shot. But as usual with Mr. Schiff, the ploy went all Acme on him and blew up in his face.
Amazing how quickly the narrative flip-flopped, though, by whatever supernatural means the news media employs these days — Ouija boards, astral vision, virtual warping, metapotence, psionic equilibrium distortion, consort with the ghost of Allen Dulles…. One might deduce that the Democratic Party nomenklatura realized in a flash of insight that Russia’s affections were far more useful applied to Mr. Sanders than Mr. Trump, whose status among the Dems these days ranks as “worse than Satan.” Not much to work with there.
They’ve been struggling to find some means to stuff Bernie into the memory hole. They tried hauling Michael Bloomberg onstage to call Bernie a communist. That bombed (along with Mr. Bloomberg altogether). Everybody already knows Bernie spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union waiting on line with the new missus for tin plates of kohlrabi soup. Sunday night, they duped Bernie onto a 60-Minutes workout, with Anderson Cooper playing inquisitor. Andy put the screws to him on the question as to how America will pay for all the free stuff Bernie proffers. The answers were embarrassingly inconclusive and nobody cared, perhaps because nobody believes it anyway, not even the most righteous Bernie more............

forty minutes of curious things surrounding the q posts, with some things i find most curious;
julian assange is being persecuted by the empire for revealing its crimes. caitlin spoke about it and here is the transcript;

This is a speech I gave yesterday at a demonstration for Assange with the Socialist Equality Party Australia.
Tomorrow in the UK a judge will start the process of answering a very important question. It’s a question that many of us knew was the heart of this debate back in 2010, ten years ago, when this all started. It’s a question that they have been obfuscating, bloviating, huffily denying, smearing, gaslighting, and distracting from–basically doing anything they can to hide it from view.
It’s a question that they don’t want the public to know that we are answering. A question that goes to the heart of democracy, and to the heart of the role of the fourth estate, journalism. And that question is this:
Should journalists and publishers be punished for exposing US war crimes?
And, ancillary to that question: should we allow them to be punished by the very people who committed those war crimes?
Is that something that we want for our world, ongoing? Because our answer to this question is going to shape our society, our civilization, for generations to come.
There is no coming back from this for a very long time should the answer be, “Yes! Yes, it’s fine, war criminals should go ahead and punish journalists for publishing true facts about their war crimes.”
If we allow the answer to be yes, then the endless stupid wars that everyone wants done with, from Melbourne to Kabul, from Sydney to Syria, right across the world people are done with these stupid wars for more..........
seems possible;

Coronavirus Could Be on the Verge of Worldwide Breakout
Paul Craig Roberts
It is difficult to get reliable information about coronavirus.  The information difficulty is further complicated by interest groups using the outbreak for their own agendas.  For example, many both inside and outside China are using the spread of the virus to criticize the Chinese government.  Others, both inside and outside China, claim the virus is a bioweapon unleashed on China by the US.  Still others say the global elite has decided to implement a program to reduce the world population and that Bill Gates, one of the global elite, said some months ago that a global pandemic would break out at this time. Some Internet sites attract traffic by posting reports of massive numbers of Chinese deaths and crematoriums running 24/7. The official Chinese story has been that the virus originated in a market that sold wild animal meat.  The fact remains that Wuhan, apparently a city larger than any in the US, has been locked down for a month.
Francis Boyle (University of Illinois) is an expert on biowarfare weapon research.  He wrote the Biological Weapons Anti-terrorism Act of 1989, which is the US implementing legislation for the 1972 Bio-Weapons Convention.  In interviews (see for example, ) Boyle says he has read four scientific studies that confirm beyond doubt that the coronavirus is an engineered bioweapon. The studies show that the virus has elements added to make it easy to spread and elements that reduce the ability of the immune system to resist the virus. more

julian assange has been targeted by the empire for telling the truth they wish to be hidden, so there's a chance he may be extradited by the brits and spend what remains of his life locked in a box. 'our free press' spends a lot of ones and zeros demonizing assange when they aught to be speaking in his favor about the first amendment and since they don't its an indication of who owns them and what they actually work for;

Julian Assange started a leak outlet on the premise that corrupt and unaccountable power is a problem in our world, and that problem can be fought with the light of truth. Corrupt and unaccountable power responded by detaining, silencing and smearing him. His persecution has proved his own thesis about the world absolutely correct.
Power is the ability to control what happens. Absolute power is controlling what people think about what happens. Humans are story-oriented creatures, so if you can control the stories that the humans are telling each other about what’s going on, you can control those humans.
This is the power of narrative management. This is why governments and billionaires use propaganda, advertising, buy up media conglomerates and fund think tanks, employ public relations and spin doctors, buy up troll armies and bot farms: because they know that those who control the narrative, control the world.
You can do whatever you like, as long as you can control what people think about what you’re doing.
No one understands this better than Julian Assange. He famously said that if wars are started by lies, then they can be stopped by truth. That’s the basis of WikiLeaks. Bringing truth to the public in the most pristine and revolutionary way possible. They made it so people could leak documents to them safely, and then they released them with minimal redactions and editorial. Like many online innovations it cut out the middle man, and the middle man, in this case, are the media spinmeisters who normally present information with an overlay of establishment-friendly narrative.
You know the ones. The ones that are like, “Here’s what I found out, but more importantly, this is what you should think about what I found out”.
It had immediate effects. Global reach, exposing the most corrupt roots of the most powerful people in an environment where the growing alarm at the GFC, climate change and endless war meant that people were hungry for the truth about why these things are still happening despite their unpopularity and despite our every effort to stop them........
i love this meme world in which a lot can be said in a few words;

some fool thinks this looks good, i guess;

six minutes of tucker carlson speaking about those in charge of the empire, and you may not be pleased to hear it;
the state of politics in virginia right now;

the hypocrisies of the empire are on display daily;

In yesterday’s sentencing hearing for Roger Stone, a friend and former advisor to President Trump, federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson misspoke. According to the New York Times, prior to sentencing Stone to serve 3 years in jail for various offenses, including lying under oath to Congress, Jackson stated:
In government inquiries, “the truth still exists. The truth still matters.” Otherwise, she said, “everyone loses.”
What she should have said is that it is only in some government inquiries that the truth still exists and still matters.
Given that Jackson served in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington, D.C., for six years, surely she is familiar with the case of James R. Clapper, Jr., the former director of national intelligence.........
