from the UK’s GCHQ: Websites targeted: “Cyber War Declared in U.S. and UK to Quash Vaccine Hesitancy as Nations Prepare for Mass Inoculations”

News organizations and journalists who raise legitimate concerns about Operation Warp Speed will be de-platformed to make way for the “required” saturation of pro-vaccine messaging across the English-speaking media landscape.

In just the past week, the national-security states of the U.S. and UK have discreetly let it be known that the cyber tools and online tactics previously designed for use in the post-9/11 “war on terror” are now being repurposed for use against information sources promoting “vaccine hesitancy” and information related to COVID-19 that runs counter to their state narratives.

A new cyber offensive was launched on Monday by the U.K.’s signal intelligence agency, Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), which seeks to target websites that publish content deemed to be “propaganda” that raises concerns regarding state-sponsored COVID-19 vaccine development and the multinational pharmaceutical corporations involved.

Similar efforts are underway in the U.S., with the U.S. military recently funding a CIA-backed firm — stuffed with former counterterrorism officials who were behind the occupation of Iraq and the rise of the so-called Islamic State — to develop an AI algorithm aimed specifically at new websites promoting “suspected” disinformation related to the COVID-19 crisis and the U.S. military–led COVID-19 vaccination effort known as Operation Warp Speed.

Both countries are preparing to silence independent journalists who raise legitimate concerns over pharmaceutical industry corruption or the extreme secrecy surrounding state-sponsored COVID-19 vaccination efforts, now that Pfizer’s vaccine candidate is slated to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by month’s end.

Pfizer’s history of being fined billions for illegal marketing and for bribing government officials to help them cover up an illegal drug trial that killed eleven children (among other crimes) has gone unmentioned by most mass media outlets, which instead have celebrated the apparently imminent approval of the company’s COVID vaccine without questioning the company’s history or that the mRNA technology used in the vaccine has sped through normal safety trial protocols and has never been approved for human use. Also unmentioned is that the head of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Patrizia Cavazzoni, is the former Pfizer vice president for product safety who covered up the connection of one of its products to birth defects.

Essentially, the power of the state is being wielded like never before to police online speech and to deplatform news websites to protect the interests of powerful corporations like Pfizer and other scandal-ridden pharmaceutical giants as well as the interests of the U.S. and U.K. national-security states, which themselves are intimately involved in the COVID-19 vaccination endeavor.

U.K. intelligence’s new cyberwar targeting “anti-vaccine propaganda”

The U.K. newspaper The Times reported that the U.K.’s GCHQ “has begun an offensive cyber-operation to disrupt anti-vaccine propaganda being spread by hostile states” and “is using a toolkit developed to tackle disinformation and recruitment material peddled by Islamic State” to do so. In addition, the U.K. government has ordered the British military’s 77th Brigade, which specializes in “information warfare,” to launch an online campaign to counter “deceptive narratives” about COVID-19 vaccine candidates.

The newly announced GCHQ “cyber war” will not only take down “anti-vaccine propaganda” but will also seek to “disrupt the operations of the cyber-actors responsible for it, including encrypting their data so they cannot access it and blocking their communications with each other.”  The effort will also involve GCHQ reaching out to other countries in the “Five Eyes” alliance (U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Canada) to alert their partner agencies in those countries to target such “propaganda” sites hosted within their borders.

The Times stated that “the government regards tackling false information about inoculation as a rising priority as the prospect of a reliable vaccine against the coronavirus draws closer,” suggesting that efforts will continue to ramp up as a vaccine candidate gets closer to approval.

It seems that, from the perspective of the U.K. national-security state, those who question corruption in the pharmaceutical industry and its possible impact on the leading experimental COVID-19 vaccine candidates (all of which use experimental vaccine technologies that have never before been approved for human use) should be targeted with tools originally designed to combat terrorist propaganda.

While The Times asserted that the effort would target content “that originated only from state adversaries” and would not target the sites of “ordinary citizens,” the newspaper suggested that the effort would rely on the U.S. government for determining whether or not a site is part of a “foreign disinformation” operation.

This is highly troubling given that the U.S. recently seized the domains of many sites, including the American Herald Tribune, which it erroneously labeled as “Iranian propaganda,” despite its editor in chief, Anthony Hall, being based in Canada. The U.S. government made this claim about the American Herald Tribune after the cybersecurity firm FireEye, a U.S. government contractor, stated that it had “moderate confidence” that the site had been “founded in Iran.”

In addition, the fact that GCHQ has alleged that most of the sites it plans to target are “linked to Moscow” gives further cause for concern given that the U.K. government was caught funding the Institute for Statecraft’s Integrity Initiative, which falsely labeled critics of the U.K. government’s actions as well as its narratives with respect to the Syria conflict as being related to “Russian disinformation” campaigns.

Given this precedent, it is certainly plausible that GCHQ could take the word of either an allied government, a government contractor, or perhaps even an allied media organization such as Bellingcat or the Atlantic Council’s DFRLab that a given site is “foreign propaganda” in order to launch a cyber offensive against it. Such concerns are only amplified when one of the main government sources for The Times article bluntly stated that “GCHQ has been told to take out antivaxers [sic] online and on social media. There are ways they have used to monitor and disrupt terrorist propaganda,” which suggests that the targets of GCHQ’s new cyber war will, in fact, be determined by the content itself rather than their suspected “foreign” origin. The “foreign” aspect instead appears to be a means of evading the prohibition in GCHQ’s operational mandate on targeting the speech or websites of ordinary citizens.

This larger pivot toward treating alleged “anti-vaxxers” as “national security threats” has been ongoing for much of this year, spearheaded in part by Imran Ahmed, the CEO of the U.K.-based Center for Countering Digital Hate, a member of the U.K. government’s Steering Committee on Countering Extremism Pilot Task Force, which is part of the U.K. government’s Commission for Countering Extremism.

Ahmed told the U.K. newspaper The Independent in July that “I would go beyond calling anti-vaxxers conspiracy theorists to say they are an extremist group that pose a national security risk.” He then stated that “once someone has been exposed to one type of conspiracy it’s easy to lead them down a path where they embrace more radical world views that can lead to violent extremism,” thereby implying that “anti-vaxxers” might engage in acts of violent extremism. Among the websites cited by Ahmed’s organization as promoting such “extremism” that poses a “national security risk” were Children’s Health Defense, the National Vaccine Information Center, Informed Consent Action Network, and Mercola.com, among others.

Similarly, a think tank tied to U.S. intelligence — whose GCHQ equivalent, the National Security Agency (NSA), will take part in the newly announced “cyber war ”— argued in a research paper published just months before the onset of the COVID-19 crisis that “the U.S. ‘anti-vaxxer’ movement would pose a threat to national security in the event of a ‘pandemic with a novel organism.’”

InfraGard, “a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and members of the private sector,” warned in the paper published last June that “the U.S. anti-vaccine movement would also be connected with ‘social media misinformation and propaganda campaigns’ orchestrated by the Russian government,” as cited by The Guardian. The InfraGard paper further claimed that prominent “anti-vaxxers” are aligned “with other conspiracy movements including the far right …and social media misinformation and propaganda campaigns by many foreign and domestic actors. Included among these actors is the Internet Research Agency, the Russian government–aligned organization.”

An article published just last month by the Washington Post argued that “vaccine hesitancy is mixing with coronavirus denial and merging with far-right American conspiracy theories, including Qanon,” which the FBI named a potential domestic terror threat last year. The article quoted Peter Hotez, dean of the School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, as saying “The U.S. anti-vaccination movement is globalizing and it’s going toward more-extremist tendencies.”

It is worth pointing out that many so-called “anti-vaxxers” are actually critics of the pharmaceutical industry and are not necessarily opposed to vaccines in and of themselves, making the labels “anti-vaxxer” and “anti-vaccine” misleading. Given that many pharmaceutical giants involved in making COVID-19 vaccines donate heavily to politicians in both countries and have been involved in numerous safety scandals, using state intelligence agencies to wage cyber war against sites that investigate such concerns is not only troubling for the future of journalism but it suggests that the U.K. is taking a dangerous leap toward becoming a country that uses its state powers to treat the enemies of corporations as enemies of the state.

CIA-backed firm “weaponizing truth” with AI

In early October, the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Special Operations Command announced that they had awarded a multimillion-dollar contract to the U.S.-based “machine intelligence” company Primer. Per the press release, “Primer will develop the first-ever machine learning platform to automatically identify and assess suspected disinformation [emphasis added]. Primer will also enhance its natural language processing platform to automatically analyze tactical events to provide commanders with unprecedented insight as events unfold in near real-time.”

According to Primer, the company “builds software machines that read and write in English, Russian, and Chinese to automatically unearth trends and patterns across large volumes of data,” and their work “supports the mission of the intelligence community and broader DOD by automating reading and research tasks to enhance the speed and quality of decision-making.” In other words, Primer is developing an algorithm that would allow the national-security state to outsource many military and intelligence analyst positions to AI. In fact, the company openly admits this, stating that their current effort “will automate the work typically done by dozens of analysts in a security operations center to ingest all of the data relevant to an event as it happens and funnel it into a unified user interface.”

Primer’s ultimate goal is to use their AI to entirely automate the shaping of public perceptions and become the arbiter of “truth,” as defined by the state. Primer’s founder, Sean Gourley, who previously created AI programs for the military to track insurgency” in post-invasion Iraq, asserted in an April blog post that “computational warfare and disinformation campaigns will, in 2020, become a more serious threat than physical war, and we will have to rethink the weapons we deploy to fight them.”

In that same post, Gourley argued for the creation of a “Manhattan Project for truth” that would create a publicly available Wikipedia-style database built off of “knowledge bases [that] already exist inside many countries’ intelligence agencies for national security purposes.” Gourley then wrote that “this effort would be ultimately about building and enhancing our collective intelligence and establishing a baseline for what’s true or not” as established by intelligence agencies. He concludes his blog post by stating that “in 2020, we will begin to weaponize truth.”

Notably, on Nov. 9, the same day that GCHQ announced its plans to target “anti-vaccine propaganda,” the U.S. website NextGov reported that Primer’s Pentagon-funded effort had turned its attention specifically to “COVID-19 related disinformation.” According to Primer’s director of science, John Bohannon, “Primer will be integrating bot detection, synthetic text detection and unstructured textual claims analysis capabilities into our existing artificial intelligence platform currently in use with DOD … This will create the first unified mission-ready platform to effectively counter COVID-19-related disinformation in near-real time.”

Bohannon, who previously worked as a mainstream journalist embedded with NATO forces in Afghanistan, also told NextGov that Primer’s new COVID-19–focused effort “automatically classifies documents into one of 10 categories to enable the detection of the impact of COVID” on areas such as “business, science and technology, employment, the global economy, and elections.” The final product is expected to be delivered to the Pentagon in the second quarter of next year.

Though a so-called private company, Primer is deeply linked to the national-security state it is designed to protect by “weaponizing truth.” Primer proudly promotes itself as having more than 15 percent of its staff hailing from the U.S. intelligence community or military. The director of the company’s National Security Group is Brian Raymond, a former CIA intelligence officer who served as the Director for Iraq on the U.S. National Security Council after leaving the agency.

The company also recently added several prominent national-security officials to its board including:

  • Retired Gen. Raymond Thomas, who led the command of all U.S. and NATO Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan and is the former commander of both U.S. Special Operations Command and Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).
  • Retired Lt. Gen. VeraLinn Jamieson, the former deputy chief of staff for Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance who led the Air Force’s intelligence and cyber forces. She also personally developed “strategic partnerships” between the Air Force and Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and IBM in order “to accelerate the Air Force’s digital transformation.”
  • Brett McGurk, one of the “chief architects” of the Iraq War “surge,” alongside the notorious Kagan family, as NSC Director for Iraq, and then as special assistant to the president and senior Director for Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush administration. Under Obama and during part of the Trump administration, McGurk was the special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS at the State Department, helping to manage the “dirty war” waged by the U.S., the U.K., and other allies against Syria.

In addition to those recent board hires, Primer brought on Sue Gordon, the former principal deputy director of National Intelligence, as a strategic adviser. Gordon previously “drove partnerships within the U.S. Intelligence Community and provided advice to the National Security Council in her role as deputy director of national intelligence” and had a twenty-seven-year career at the CIA. The deep links are unsurprising, given that Primer is financially backed by the CIA’s venture-capital arm In-Q-Tel and the venture-capital arm of billionaire Mike Bloomberg, Bloomberg Beta.

Operation Warp Speed’s disinformation blitzkrieg  

The rapid increase in interest by the U.S. and U.K. national-security states toward COVID-19 “disinformation,” particularly as it relates to upcoming COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, is intimately related to the media-engagement strategy of the U.S. government’s Operation Warp Speed.

Officially a “public-private partnership,” Operation Warp Speed, which has the goal of vaccinating 300 million Americans by next January, is dominated by the U.S. military and also involves several U.S. intelligence agencies, including the NSA and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as well as intelligence-linked tech giants Google, Oracle, and Palantir. Several reports published in The Last American Vagabond by this author and journalist Derrick Broze have revealed the extreme secrecy of the operation, its numerous conflicts of interest, and its deep ties to Silicon Valley and Orwellian technocratic initiatives.

Warp Speed’s official guidance discusses at length its phased plan for engaging the public and addressing issues of “vaccine hesitancy.” According to the Warp Speed document entitled “From the Factory to the Frontlines,” “strategic communications and public messaging are critical to ensure maximum acceptance of vaccines, requiring a saturation of messaging across the national media.” It also states that “working with established partners — especially those that are trusted sources for target audiences — is critical to advancing public understanding of, access to, and acceptance of eventual vaccines” and that “identifying the right messages to promote vaccine confidence, countering misinformation, and targeting outreach to vulnerable and at-risk populations will be necessary to achieve high coverage.”

The document also notes that Warp Speed will employ the CDC’s three-pronged strategic framework for its communications effort. The third pillar of that strategy is entitled “Stop Myths” and has as a main focus “establish[ing] partnerships to contain the spread of misinformation” as well as “work[ing] with local partners and trusted messengers to improve confidence in vaccines.”

Though that particular Warp Speed document is short on specifics, the CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook contains additional information. It states that Operation Warp Speed will “engage and use a wide range of partners, collaborations, and communication and news media channels to achieve communication goals, understanding that channel preferences and credible sources vary among audiences and people at higher risk for severe illness and critical populations, and channels vary in their capacity to achieve different communication objectives.” It states that it will focus its efforts in this regard on “traditional media channels” (print, radio, and TV) as well as “digital media” (internet, social media, and text messaging).

The CDC document further reveals that the “public messaging” campaign to “promote vaccine uptake” and address “vaccine hesitancy” is divided into four phases and adds that the overall communication strategy of Warp Speed “should be timely and applicable for the current phase of the COVID-19 Vaccination program.”

Those phases are:

  • Before a vaccine is available.
  • The vaccine is available in limited supply for certain populations of early focus.
  • The vaccine is increasingly available for other critical populations and the general public.
  • The vaccine is widely available.

Given that the COVID-19 vaccine candidate produced by Pfizer is expected to be approved by the end of November, it appears that the U.S. national-security state, which is essentially running Operation Warp Speed, along with “trusted messengers” in mass media, is preparing to enter the second phase of its communications strategy, one in which news organizations and journalists who raise legitimate concerns about Warp Speed will be de-platformed to make way for the “required” saturation of pro-vaccine messaging across the English-speaking media landscape.

Life under a Tory government: “‘I spoke to impoverished families in 1975 and little has changed since then’ John Pilger writes in The Mirror

 

John Pilger interviewed Irene Brunsden in Hackney, east London about only being able to feed her two-year-old a plate of cornflakes in 1975. Now he sees nervous women queueing at foodbanks with their children as it’s revealed 600,000 more kids are in poverty now than in 2012.

When I first reported on child poverty in Britain, I was struck by the faces of children I spoke to, especially the eyes. They were different: watchful, fearful.

In Hackney, in 1975, I filmed Irene Brunsden’s family. Irene told me she gave her two-year-old a plate of cornflakes. “She doesn’t tell me she’s hungry, she just moans. When she moans, I know something is wrong.”

“How much money do you have in the house? I asked.

“Five pence,” she replied.

Irene said she might have to take up prostitution, “for the baby’s sake”. Her husband Jim, a truck driver who was unable to work because of illness, was next to her. It was as if they shared a private grief.

This is what poverty does. In my experience, its damage is like the damage of war; it can last a lifetime, spread to loved ones and contaminate the next generation. It stunts children, brings on a host of diseases and, as unemployed Harry Hopwood in Liverpool told me, “it’s like being in prison”.

This prison has invisible walls. When I asked Harry’s young daughter if she ever thought that one day she would live a life like better-off children, she said unhesitatingly: “No”.

What has changed 45 years later?  At least one member of an impoverished family is likely to have a job — a job that denies them a living wage. Incredibly, although poverty is more disguised, countless British children still go to bed hungry and are ruthlessly denied opportunities..

What has not changed is that poverty is the result of a disease that is still virulent yet rarely spoken about – class.

Study after study shows that the people who suffer and die early from the diseases of poverty brought on by a poor diet, sub-standard housing and the priorities of the political elite and its hostile “welfare” officials — are working people. In 2020, one in three preschool British children suffers like this.

In making my recent film, The Dirty War on the NHS, it was clear to me that the savage cutbacks to the NHS and its privatisation by the Blair, Cameron, May and Johnson governments had devastated the vulnerable, including many NHS workers and their families. I interviewed one low-paid NHS worker who could not afford her rent and was forced, to sleep in churches or on the streets.

At a foodbank in central London, I watched young mothers looking nervously around as they hurried away with old Tesco bags of food and washing powder and tampons they could no longer afford, their young children holding on to them. It is no exaggeration that at times I felt I was walking in the footprints of Dickens. 

Boris Johnson has claimed that 400,000 fewer children are living in poverty since 2010 when the Conservatives came to power. This is a lie, as the Children’s Commissioner has confirmed. In fact, more than 600,000 children have fallen into poverty since 2012; the total is expected to exceed 5 million. This, few dare say, is a class war on children.

Old Etonian Johnson is may be a caricature of the born-to-rule class; but his “elite” is not the only one. All the parties in Parliament, notably if not especially Labour – like much of the bureaucracy and most of the media — have scant if any connection to the “streets”: to the world of the poor: of the “gig economy”: of battling a system of Universal Credit that can leave you without a penny and in despair.

Last week, the prime minister and his “elite” showed where their priorities lay. In the face of the greatest health crisis in living memory when Britain has the highest Covid-19 death toll in Europe and poverty is accelerating as the result of a punitive “austerity” policy, he announced £16.5 billion for “defence”. This makes Britain, whose military bases cover the world as if the empire still existed, the highest military spender in Europe.

And the enemy? The real one is poverty and those who impose it and perpetuate it.

#FreeAssange: The Guardian’s Silence Let UK Trample on Assange’s Rights + Protest “The Guardian’s Role” + “The War Logs” 10th Anniversary 21 Oct. 2020

 Update 21 Oct. 20: 

Marking 10 Years since the Iraq War  Logs

The Guardian’s Silence Let UK Trample on Assange’s Rights in Effective Darkness

On the eve of a demonstration outside the paper’s office in London, Jonathan Cook issues a statement about The Guardian’s abandonment of its former media partner.

WISE Up, a solidarity group for Julian Assange and whistleblower Chelsea Manning, is due to stage ademonstrationoutside The Guardian offices on Oct. 22 to protest the paper’s failure to support Assange as the U.S. seeks his extradition in an unprecedented assault on press freedom.

The date chosen for the protest marks the 10th anniversary of The Guardian’s publication of the Iraq war logs, leaked by Manning to Assange and which lie at the heart of the U.S. case to reclassify journalism exposing crimes against humanity as “espionage.”

Here is my full statement, part of which is due to be read out, in support of Assange and castigating The Guardian for its craven failure to speak up in solidarity with its former media partner:  

Julian Assange has been hounded out of public life and public view by the U.K.  and U.S.  governments for the best part of a decade.

Now he languishes in a small, airless cell in Belmarsh high-security prison in London — a victim of arbitrary detention, according to a UN working group, and a victim of psychological torture, according to Nils Melzer, the UN’s expert on torture.

If Judge Vanessa Baraitser, presiding in the Central Criminal Court in London, agrees to extradition, as she gives every appearance of preparing to do, Assange will be the first journalist to face a terrifying new ordeal — a form of extraordinary rendition to the United States for “espionage” — for having the courage to publish documents that exposed U.S.  war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The Guardian worked with Assange and WikiLeaks on vitally important documents – now at the heart of the U.S.  case against Assange – known as the Afghanistan and Iraq war logs. The latter were published exactly a decade ago today. They were a journalistic coup of global significance, and the paper ought to be profoundly proud of its role in bringing them to public attention.

Protest Call Out! Thursday 22/10/20 at 12 noon The Guardian’s Role in the Persecution and Prosecution of Julian #Assange https://t.co/OJhq1ElaLW

— Emmy Butlin (@greekemmy) October 20, 2020

During Assange’s extradition hearing, however, The Guardian treated the logs and its past association with Assange and WikiLeaks more like a dirty secret it hoped to keep out of sight. Those scoops furnished by Assange and whistleblower Chelsea Manning enriched the paper financially, and bolstered its standing internationally. They also helped to pave its path into the lucrative U.S.  market.

Unlike Assange and Manning, The Guardian has suffered no consequences for publishing the logs. Unlike Assange and Manning, the paper has faced no retribution. While it profited, Assange continues to be made an example of — to deter other journalists from contemplating following in his footsteps.

The Guardian owes Assange.It owes him a huge debt for allowing it to share in the journalistic glory of WikiLeaks’ revelations.

It owes him a duty of care as its partner in publishing the logs.

It owes him its voice loudly denouncing the abuse of a fellow journalist for doing the essence of journalism — holding the powerful to account.

It owes him and its own staff, and the young journalists who will one day take their place, its muscle in vigorously defending the principle of a strong and free press.

It owes him, and the rest of us, a clear profession of its outrage as the U.S. conducts an unprecedented assault on free speech, the foundation of a democratic society.

And yet The Guardian has barely raised its voice above a whisper as the noose has tightened around Assange’s — and by extension, our — neck. It has barely bothered to cover the dramatic and deeply disturbing developments of last month’s extradition hearing, or the blatant abuses of legal process overseen by Baraitser.

The Guardian has failed to raise its editorial voice in condemnation either of the patently dishonest U.S.  case for extradition or of the undisguised mistreatment of Assange by Britain’s legal and judicial authorities.

The paper’s many columnists ignored the proceedings too, except for those who contributed yet more snide and personal attacks of the kind that have typified The Guardian’s coverage of Assange for many years.

It is not too late for the paper to act in defence of Assange and journalism.

Assange’s rights are being trampled under foot close by The Guardian’s offices in London because the British establishment knows that these abuses are taking place effectively in darkness. It has nothing to fear as long as the media abdicates its responsibility to scrutinize what amounts to the biggest attack on journalism in living memory.

Were The Guardian to shine a light on Assange’s case — as it is morally obligated to do — the pressure would build on other media organizations, not least the BBC, to do their job properly too. The British establishment would finally face a countervailing pressure to the one being exerted so forcefully by the U.S.

The Guardian should have stood up for Assange long ago, when the threats he and investigative journalism faced became unmistakable. It missed that opportunity. But the threats to Assange — and the causes of transparency and accountability he champions — have not gone away. They have only intensified. Assange needs the Guardian’s support more urgently, more desperately than ever before.

The Guardian’s Role in the Persecution and Prosecution of Julian Assange – A Disgrace to Journalism and a Mortal Danger to a Free Press

By Maxine Walker

Julian Assange is responsible for publishing the most massive and important leaks of US government documents showing the reality of its (and UK/NATO partners) wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  These 2010 leaks created a tidal wave of disgust at the revelations of war crimes, corruption, torture, rendition and death squads. The US/UK were determined to annihilate Assange and ensure that such exposure would never happen again.

Consequently, today Julian Assange, a journalist and publisher, sits, silenced in Belmarsh Maximum Security prison, awaiting a ruling on his extradition to the USA on charges of espionage carrying a 175-year sentence. He is a victim of years of ‘arbitrary detention’ and psychological torture according to UN organisations and experts.

A journalist and publisher charged with espionage for publishing the truth? Surely you would expect other journalists – seeing the danger to honest journalism – to rally to his defense. Especially the Guardian which claims to stand for liberal values and benefited greatly by collaborating with Assange and WikiLeaks on publishing the Afghan and Iraq material.

Think Again. They did the Opposite.

The oh so liberal Guardian has in fact taken the lead media role for the past 8 years in smearing, lying about and ridiculing Julian Assange. More than any other media outlet, it has shaped and weaponised mainstream liberal opinion into an Anti-Assange lobby.  By doing this the Guardian has given enormous support to a massively well-resourced US/UK campaign to ‘Get Assange’ and has helped to pave the way for his imprisonment in the USA.

Cartoon by Oisele

Since 2012 they have printed a stream of half-truths, outright lies and smears accusing Assange of being variously:  A Russian agent and Putin Ally – PROVABLY FALSE A Trump supporter – PROVABLY FALSE A narcissist/Egotist/ A bail absconder/an outlaw – PROVABLY FALSE

The Guardian has ignored repeated violations of his human and legal rights.  They have shown not a flicker of curiosity about his prison conditions (effectively solitary confinement); his psychological torture; his court cases (he appears in court in a glass box as though a dangerous prisoner)  or about US intelligence agencies extraordinary and illegal surveillance of Assange (24-hour video and audio recordings of his meetings with lawyers, doctors, journalists etc)  in the Ecuadorian Embassy. Instead they have waged warfare against Julian Assange.

Guardian gutter journalism- No smear too low

The following is a  just a small proportion of the Guardians gutter journalism: In 2015 the UN Working Group Arbitrary Detention (a body of eminent lawyers and experts) ruled that Julian Assange had been arbitrarily detained since 2012, a ruling made against enormous pressure from the US and UK governments. The Guardian’s Marina Hyde (who later called Assange “the biggest arsehole in Knightsbridge”) taking the Government line wrote:” I don’t want to go out on too much of a limb here, but my sense is that the finest legal minds are not drawn to UN panels as a career path. … Perhaps UN panellists are like UN goodwill ambassadors, and even Geri Halliwell could be one. …” She was happy to torch not only  Assange’s rights but also the last hope of those illegally detained by repressive governments.

After the Ecuadorian and UK governments illegally breached Assange’s asylum and dragged him out Ecuadorian Embassy in 2019, the Guardian’s Hadley Freeman wrote mockingly: “I love stories about badly behaved houseguests and Julian Assange has raised the bar” followed by her recycling of the most insulting and unfounded insults about his behaviour.

In 2018 Luke Harding and other Guardian writers began a concerted campaign to link Assange with the Kremlin. Offering no evidence whatsoever, Harding and others simply increasingly referred to his ‘ties to the Kremlin.”  Kathleen Hall Jamieson asserted that “it now clearer than ever” that “the Russian cyber-theft” of thousands of Democratic Party emails was “abetted by Assange’s WikiLeaks”  Harding and others wrote the fictional: ‘Revealed: Russia’s secret plan to help Julian Assange escape from UK.’  Finally, Harding invented an entire episode in which he claimed that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had held three secret talks with Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy.  This was strenuously denied by all and, given that the Embassy was amongst the most surveilled building in London, evidence would have existed. Any functional journalist would have known these stories were intelligence plants designed, as we now see, as part of the softening up process for Julian Assange’s 2019 ejection from the Embassy and current Extradition proceedings against him.

Most recently the Guardian has barely covered his Extradition hearing at the Old Bailey nor the enormous threat to press freedom represented by his case. They covered Jonny Depp’s court case more.

The Guardian has lied so much it is now part of the US Prosecution case

The US Extradition case against Assange is wholly politically motivated but the US Prosecutors have to pretend crimes have been committed by Julian Assange. One of their accusations is that Assange risked lives and caused harm by failing to redact names.  At the Old Bailey they repeatedly quoted from a book about WikiLeaks authored by Guardian journalists, David Leigh and Luke Harding which claims that Assange was recklessly indifferent to the safety of US informants named in leaked files. This not true. Serious journalists who had worked with Assange on the leaks testified at the Old Bailey that Assange was scrupulous about risk minimisation and redaction.  The Leigh/Harding book also, unforgivably revealed a complex password entrusted to Leigh by Assange that provided access to an online cache of unredacted documents.  Assange is now in the dock for this and still the Guardian continues to lie.

If a plane takes off from the UK with Assange shackled on board destined for life in a US supermax prison – the Guardian will bear a large part of the blame.

Free Julian Assange

The Guardian’s Role in the Persecution and Prosecution of Julian Assange – A Disgrace to Journalism and a Mortal Danger to a Free Press

By Maxine Walker

Julian Assange is responsible for publishing the most massive and important leaks of US government documents showing the reality of its (and UK/NATO partners) wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  These 2010 leaks created a tidal wave of disgust at the revelations of war crimes, corruption, torture, rendition and death squads. The US/UK were determined to annihilate Assange and ensure that such exposure would never happen again.

Consequently, today Julian Assange, a journalist and publisher, sits, silenced in Belmarsh Maximum Security prison, awaiting a ruling on his extradition to the USA on charges of espionage carrying a 175-year sentence. He is a victim of years of ‘arbitrary detention’ and psychological torture according to UN organisations and experts.

A journalist and publisher charged with espionage for publishing the truth? Surely you would expect other journalists – seeing the danger to honest journalism – to rally to his defense. Especially the Guardian which claims to stand for liberal values and benefited greatly by collaborating with Assange and WikiLeaks on publishing the Afghan and Iraq material.

Think Again. They did the Opposite.

The oh so liberal Guardian has in fact taken the lead media role for the past 8 years in smearing, lying about and ridiculing Julian Assange. More than any other media outlet, it has shaped and weaponised mainstream liberal opinion into an Anti-Assange lobby.  By doing this the Guardian has given enormous support to a massively well-resourced US/UK campaign to ‘Get Assange’ and has helped to pave the way for his imprisonment in the USA.

Cartoon by Oisele

Since 2012 they have printed a stream of half-truths, outright lies and smears accusing Assange of being variously:  A Russian agent and Putin Ally – PROVABLY FALSE A Trump supporter – PROVABLY FALSE A narcissist/Egotist/ A bail absconder/an outlaw – PROVABLY FALSE

The Guardian has ignored repeated violations of his human and legal rights.  They have shown not a flicker of curiosity about his prison conditions (effectively solitary confinement); his psychological torture; his court cases (he appears in court in a glass box as though a dangerous prisoner)  or about US intelligence agencies extraordinary and illegal surveillance of Assange (24-hour video and audio recordings of his meetings with lawyers, doctors, journalists etc)  in the Ecuadorian Embassy. Instead they have waged warfare against Julian Assange.

Maurice Kirk: Undelivered letters from prison: contd. + “Abuse of Process Applications to Cardiff Courts” 18 Oct. 2020

As shown in previous posts, much mail was refused from being sent to recipients by the prison, written by Maurice Kirk whilst he was resident in it – even important recorded delivery mail to the Royal Courts of Justice, which had to be paid for by Maurice, were kept back and not sent. Completely illegal. Also, mail was not received by Maurice either – below are pic of just some of those letters [often with stamps] which were refused from being given to him, with more.

Abuse of Process Applications to Cardiff Courts

I have had delivered to Cardiff County Court my 25 page personal witness statement carefully written, for my readers from around the world, to simply reveal the multi thousands of UK’s funds simply to have me gaoled for a minimum 10 years, anything, just anything, to stop my million pound damages claim against the South Wales Police

the cause

for their 40 odd lost malicious criminal prosecutions case number, now blocked for an appeal , BS614159 plus 8

BUT THAT IS NOT WHY I enclose this early draft for RCJ on how disgusting the welsh penal system is- but who gives a dam other than those incarcerated ?

Exeter Crown court, shortly, will hear the outcome of John Graham’s prison stopped letters, a courtdisturbance to warrant the complainant being gaoled

As usual I buy all who attend a very good lunch, paid for in advance owing to the unusual ciecumstances all generated by the south Wales Police, chief senior prosecutor NS Evans Esq and His Honour Judge Di Evens not stopping this wicked situation from contimuing.

But, of course, the dreaded Covid 19 is endangering each of the above’s incomes with 5000 Crown court trials, is it, put on ‘hold’ so , of course they must boost their respective pensions by dragging on any futile case they can generate or however absurd and bizarre South Wales Police case they can throw at their ‘gravy train’ system.

WHY, for promotion as CPS Richard Thomlow had decided to quickly become a judge for criminally pursuing myT20097447 ‘machine gun’ criminal prosecution. Just as DC Hughes, female police officer that had sneaked into each day of my machine gun criminal trial despite, as prosecution witness, reporting evidence on oath, each day , as promised promotion which she promptly GOT!

JOHN GRAHAM, also a prosecution witness, has since tried to obtain return of his stolen communications with me, by Cardiff and Parc, Bridgend welsh prisons.

REQUEST FOR AN INTERNAL REVIEW

Dear Mr. Jukes,

Creator of my inspiration to expose just ‘what really goes on in our law Courts’

Seeing as I am denied my F.O.I.A. [S.A.R.]  / Data Protection Act request sent already [and attached to this message] to yourself, and after receiving the letter below [attached also] from a Mr. Jason Jenkins, a “Disclosure Officer” of S. Wales police I hereby ask for a formal internal review regarding the denial of my request.

It is believed the S. Wales police force does have the letter referred to in my request as Mr. Kirk was criminally charged and remanded in custody connected to the letter addressed to myself [amongst others] written by Mr. Kirk whilst previously resident in prison earlier in 2019, the letter allegedly having allegedly a possibly noxious “white substance” on it. This letter was stopped from being sent to myself by prison authorities / police at the time. The criminal charge of the letter which was attempted to be sent to myself has subsequently been dropped by the CPS.

I have already sent 3 forms of ID pertaining to myself after your request for ID.

For your information, the addition / amendment not sent with my written request, which was sent to Mr. Jukes at the S Wales police HQ at Cowbridge Rd. via recorded delivery R. Mail, is:

” Sent: 18 September 2020 10:59
To: matt.jukes@south-wales.pnn.police.uk <matt.jukes@south-wales.pnn.police.uk>
Subject: F.A.O.: Chief Constable Mr. M. Jukes, S. Wales police – Update to my F.O.I.A. / Data Protection Act / S.A.R. request

TO: Chief Constable of S. Wales police: Mr. M. Jukes, Police HQ., Cowbridge Rd., Bridgend, S. Wales,  CF31 3SU

FROM:  Mr. J. G. Graham

18 September 2020

UPDATE TO MY F.O.I.A. / D.P.A. Request to the Chief Constable Mr. M. Jukes, dated and sent 17 Sept. 2020:

Dear Mr. Jukes, Chief Constable of S. Wales police:

Please refer to my F.O.I.A. request to you, sent via R. Mail and also attached to this message. I apologise for leaving out an important part of my FOIA / Data Protection Act / S.A.R. request to you – that is:

Mr. Maurice Kirk [d.o.b. 12/03/1945, Somerset, UK]  was charged by the police in mid-2020 with:

” attempting to send a substance which caused distress to another [approx. May 2019] – the letter was stopped from leaving the prison last May 2019″

Mr. Kirk was in prison at the time of sending this letter, it being addressed to myself prior to it being stopped from leaving the prison, by authorities. This charge to Mr. Kirk was subsequently dropped in approximately June 2020.

My FOIA requests asks for a copy of this letter which was stopped as it had an alleged “substance” on it which might [qu.] “caused distress to another” [unqu.] – as it obviously exists as Mr. Kirk was charged with attempting to send it to myself. I request any other letters pertaining to myself that were not sent to me from either HMP Parc or HMP Cardiff from Mr. Kirk, during the times Mr. Kirk was resident in either of these prisons, whether they had any alleged “substances” on them or not.

The letter relating to the charge that was dropped for Mr. Kirk was referred to in part by the S. Wales police officer who wrote by email to myself – a copy of that email dated 06th July 2020 from officer “Brynsley Richards” of S. Wales police being sent with my 1st and original FOIA request letter to you sent on the 17 September 2020 via Royal Mail Recorded Delivery 1st class.  My F.O.I.A. request and attachment is attached to this email.

Thank you.

South Wales Police Machine Gun Conspiracy, to have me Shot, again in court on 12thc October 2020 – I am buying lunch

An early draft of my laboriously explaining, I am afraid, on how high ranking welsh police in the Vale of Glamorgan, due to their pensions now being at real a serious risk, (by locking me up for 5 years) had fabricated for me a MAPPA level 3 category 3 registration in order to stop my civil claim and if possible, having me shot in front of my wife, Kirsty and Daughter, Genevieve…. Oh yes, and who is next?

Fabricated following their having lost over 40 malicious criminal prosecutions while having my name removed from the veterinary register, on welsh police say so, using the remaining 11% from some 113 criminal allegations within nine years.

This machine -gun civil claim ,on Monday 12th Oct 3030 should be quite interesting in Cardiff’s Cardiff’s so called Civil Justice Centre

Hear is an earlier rough draft of about half of my my personal statement simply setting out exploring their deceit in some greater detail

Legal

This below Caswell Clinic fabricated data of Glanrhyd Hospital, Bridgend, was used in a secret Cardiff Crown Court hearing where I was unlawfully denied access when not even legally represented.

All while the fabricators of their chief constable’s machine-gun conspiracy are laughing all the way to the bank.

PLEASE READ WHAT HAD ME GAOLED FOR FIVE YEARS AND DESTROYED MY FAMILY

36.1 have been asked to give my mind to the issue as to whether or not Maurice Kirk is fit to plead and stand trial. Maurice Kirk clearly understands the nature of the charge and the significance of his plea. However, due to Maurice Kirk’s mental disorder described above, specifically his brain damage and its relationship to self-awareness, judgement, decision making, self-regulation of behaviour and control of emotions, combined with difficulty organising and sequencing information, his inability to filter out relevant information and his ‘ problems with attention and concentration, his overwhelming perception of himself as being a victim of persecution by the system, all of which are clearly evident in discussions with him concerning the alleged offence, he appears unable to address a specific legal and technical area of law necessary to appropriately conduct his defence.

37. Should Maurice Kirk be legally represented in court I would consider him fit to stand trial as a legal representation would be able to focus on the relevant matters.

38. Maurice Kirk’s current clinical presentation is clearly causing major problems for the Criminal Justice System, though is not of a nature and degree to warrant compulsory treatment. He would, however, benefit from continued contact with Mental Health Services to both monitor his condition and attempt to establish a relationship which would allow other treatment avenues to be explored.

39.1 I am aware that my opinion will cause significant difficulty for the court. I am also aware of the difficulties the court has had gaining further psychiatric evidence which to a degree is due to Maurice Kirk’s perceived ability to intimidate and threaten those who become involved in his case. Should Maurice Kirk require in-patient hospital treatment, I have concerns that a Medium Secure Unit would not be able to provide the degree of procedural security necessary to maintain the safety of its staff the confidentiality of other patients and the necessary security. Should the court wish a second opinion, they may wish to consider instructing a psychiatrist from a High Secure Hospital to assess Maurice Kirk both as to treatment and the environment in which that treatment should take place. I stress that the requirement for conditions of Special Security are purely as a result of Maurice Kirk’s communication with and encouragement of others, rather than his clinical presentation.

40. Maurice Kirk can return to court for any disposal that the court sees fit

Another MP Bitten by Blair’s Wicked 1997 Harassment Act

Claudia Webbe arriving at a Labour Party meeting to finalise the Party's 2019 General Election manifesto

Patrick Cullinane Esq, Sir Norm Scarth RN, WW2 Arctic convoy survivor and Dame Sabine Macneill of email fame I hope you are all ‘sitting comfortably’ and I will begin…what I am about to ‘publish and be damned’

BOYS & GIRLS

We now have a spokeswomen in The House to get this thoroughly badly drafted evil Act to be chopped up, burnt at the stake, hung , drawn and quartered and even rescinded

Labour MP Claudia Webbe has been charged with harassing a woman.

Ms Webbe, who represents Leicester East, is accused of one count of harassment between September 2018 and April this year.The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the 55-year-old MP is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 11 November.

Ms Webbe has said she is “innocent of any wrongdoing” and that she will “vigorously” defend herself in court.Labour has suspended Ms Webbe from the party and the party whip following the harassment charge, the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg understands.A Labour Party spokesperson said: “It would not be appropriate to comment on an ongoing case.

“Jenny Hopkins, from the CPS, said: “The CPS has today decided that Claudia Webbe, MP for Leicester East, should be charged with an offence of harassment against one female.”The CPS made the decision after receiving a file of evidence from the Metropolitan Police.

“Ms Webbe was elected as an MP in December’s general election, taking over the seat previously held by Keith Vaz.She remains a councillor in Islington, north London, since 2010, and was also a member of Labour’s National Executive Committee.Earlier in her career she acted as an adviser to Ken Livingstone when he was Mayor of London.

Patrick Cullinane Esq suffered an early death due to this wicked Act

Sir Norman had to early exile to Southern Ireland for fear of his life at 90 odd

Dame Sabine of email creation at Cerne laboratories had a ridiculously harsh 7 year prison term while I was let off with only a mere 5 years in the stench of welsh prisons.

As with the others named above, simply for publishing the truth a concept in life, incidentally, difficult to comprehend by those in authority where I once struggled for decades, South Wales, simply trying to practice veterinary surgery and bring up 1st and 2nd families without fear of reprisals.

I definitely GOT that bit wrong. South Wales has a climate tainted by deceit a concept in life, incidentally, where truth’ for them is difficult to comprehend.

I WILL HELP FUND THE STARTING OF A CAMPAIGN TO RID MY COUNTRY OF THIS MODERN EQUIVALENT OF THE 60s ‘SUS’ LAW simply for the POLICE TO LOCK AWAY THOSE WHOSE WHO ARE SIMPLY TELLING THE TRUTH

COVID19: German Neurologist Warns Against Wearing #Facemasks: ‘Oxygen Deprivation Causes Permanent Neurological Damage’ + Over 30,000 Health Experts Sign Declaration Against COVID-19 Lockdowns 14 Oct. 2020

 

German Neurologist Warns Against Wearing #Facemasks: ‘Oxygen Deprivation Causes Permanent Neurological Damage’ (+ it’s worse for kids): Dr Margarite Griesz-Brisson

This is one of the most important posts I have ever made, so please read it. I have written a transcript of some highlights from Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson’s recent and extremely pressing video message, which was translated from German into English by Claudia Stauber.

Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD is a Consultant Neurologist and Neurophysiologist with a PhD in Pharmacology, with special interest in neurotoxicology, environmental medicine, neuroregeneration and neuroplasticity. This is what she has to say about facemasks and their effects on our brains:

“The reinhalation of our exhaled air will without a doubt create oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation. There are nerve cells for example in the hippocampus that can’t be longer than 3 minutes without oxygen – they cannot survive.

The acute warning symptoms are headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, issues in concentration, slowing down of reaction time – reactions of the cognitive system.

However, when you have chronic oxygen deprivation, all of those symptoms disappear, because you get used to it. But your efficiency will remain impaired and the under-supply of oxygen in your brain continues to progress.

We know that neurodegenerative diseases take years to decades to develop. If today you forget your phone number, the breakdown in your brain would have already started 20 or 30 years ago.

While you’re thinking that you have gotten used to wearing your mask and rebreathing your own exhaled air, the degenerative processes in your brain are getting amplified as your oxygen deprivation continues.”

Over 30,000 Health Experts Sign Declaration Against COVID-19 Lockdowns

Declaration by 3 epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford elicits support and criticism
October 13, 2020 Updated: October 13, 2020

More than 32,000 medical doctors and health scientists from around the world have signed a petition against lockdowns put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19, saying the measures are causing “irreparable damage.”

As of Oct. 13, over 23,000 of the signatories were medical practitioners and 9,000 were medical and public health scientists. They have joined more than 400,000 members of the general public in signing the petition.

The petition is co-authored by Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a Harvard professor and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease; Dr. Sunetra Gupta, an Oxford University professor and epidemiologist with expertise in immunology; and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a Stanford University Medical School professor and epidemiologist with expertise in infectious disease and vulnerable populations.

“Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short- and long-term public health,” reads the petition, titled the Great Barrington Declaration, after the Massachusetts town where it was authored by the three experts on Oct. 4.

The declaration says lockdowns result in worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings, lower childhood vaccination rates, and deteriorating mental health, to name a few issues, all of which will lead to high mortality rates in the years to come.

“Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice,” the doctors write.

Instead of shutting everything down until a vaccine is available, the doctors say focus should be on minimizing mortality and social harm until herd immunity is reached. Herd immunity refers to when a population becomes immune to an infectious disease, which the doctors say will eventually be reached for all populations, and can be assisted by, but not dependent upon, a vaccine.

“Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza,” the declaration states.

The declaration says public health officials should aim to protect the most vulnerable population, while allowing those who are not vulnerable to “resume life as normal.”

“The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk.”

Measures to protect the vulnerable population, the declaration says, can include examples such as minimizing staff rotations at nursing homes, delivering groceries and other essentials to retired people living at home, and the elderly meeting family members outside rather than inside when possible. Meanwhile, all members of society should take simple hygiene measures such as hand-washing and staying home when sick to bring down the herd immunity threshold, the doctors say.

But young, low-risk adults should be allowed to work normally, rather than from home; schools should be opened for in-person teaching; and extracurricular activities such as sports should be resumed, the declaration says.

“Arts, music, sport, and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity,” the declaration says.

Dr. Matt Strauss, one of the Canadian doctors who has put his name to the declaration, told the Toronto Sun that most medical professionals he has talked to agree that the lockdowns are bringing more harm than benefit.

“I don’t even think my opinion is a minority opinion among the experts I work with,” said Strauss, a critical care physician and professor at Queen’s University School of Medicine.

However, the declaration also has its critics.

“We cannot reach herd immunity without a massive loss of life or a vaccine. It’s that simple. Honestly, it boggles my mind that intelligent people are signing on to this statement,” Dr. Irfan Dhalla, a general internist and a vice-president at Unity Health which operates two hospitals in Toronto, told the National Post.

Dr. David Naylor, co-chair of Canada’s COVID-19 immunity task force, told the Post that given the prospects of the eventual arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine, “why on earth should we rush to embrace a reckless prescription for a demographically-selective national ‘chickenpox party’ involving a dangerous pathogen?”

Letter to Ford Against Lockdowns

In late September, a group of 20 doctors in Canada issued a letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford, arguing against a return to lockdowns amid a rise in COVID-19 cases.

“Lockdowns have been shown not to eliminate the virus,” said the letter, published by the National Post.

The doctors, which include professors of medicine from the University of Toronto, McMaster University, and the University of Ottawa, and different hospitals, say lockdowns slow the spread of the virus only as long as the lockdown is in place.

“This creates a situation where there is no way to end the lockdown, and society cannot move forward in vitally important ways including in the health sector, the economy and other critically important instrumental goods including education, recreation, and healthy human social interactions,” the letter says.

The doctors say the recent increases in cases in the province this time around are in people under 60, who are unlikely to become very ill as a result of being infected with COVID-19. While those over 60 accounted for over half of the cases during the peak of the pandemic in Ontario in mid-April, now they only account for less than 15 percent of the cases.

“In Ontario and other parts of the world, such as the European Union, increasing case loads are not necessarily translating into unmanageable levels of hospitalizations and ICU admissions,” the letter says.

“While we understand the concerns that these cases could spill into vulnerable communities, we also need to balance the actual risk.”

The doctors say officials should take the costs of lockdowns into consideration. This includes the negative health effects, such as the 40 percent rise in overdoses in some jurisdictions, delayed surgeries, delays in cancer patient diagnostics, and closure of schools.

“Our society has borne enormous pain over the past six months. It’s time to do something different,” the doctors write.

Meanwhile, a study published in the British Medical Journal last week says while initial restrictions were effective at reducing the burden in intensive care units in U.K. hospitals, maintaining the lockdowns would prolong the pandemic and increase the number of deaths.

“The model predicted that school closures and isolation of younger people would increase the total number of deaths, albeit postponed to a second and subsequent waves,” says the study, based on the data used by the British government when it imposed lockdowns in March.

R.I.P. Dave McGowan – Google refuses to allow you to see this man’s work – and he was given cancer to shut him up – 06 Oct. 2020

R.I.P Dave McGowan.

dave-mcgowan
Dave McGowan. 1960-2015.

“The only question now remaining, I suppose, is simply this: how long can we – the American people – allow a government to stand that is so depraved, so fundamentally corrupt and criminal, so completely lacking in any semblance of morals or basic human decency that it would traffic in the minds and bodies of our children?HOW FUCKING LONG?

Dave McGowan ,  June 2000.

December 18th, 2015.

Dave McGowan 1960-2015.

An Immense loss to those who are trying to learn and spread the truth.

On November 22nd 2015, American journalist and researcher Dave McGowan died of cancer. He was 55 years old.

McGowan provided quality commentary and research on a number of important issues but was perhaps best known for his work on the Moon landings.

Wagging the Moondoggie, Part 1

This probably explains the fact that McGowan’s death has largely been ignored, with a brief mention at Truth and Shadows and a piece at Memory Hole the only noteworthy mentions of his death alongside the conventional obituary that provides an outline of Dave McGowan’s life.

A lifelong Angeleno, David was born in Torrance on March 25, 1960, and died at home in Eagle Rock on November 22, 2015. He graduated from Torrance High in 1978 and from UCLA in 1983. In addition to owning his own construction business, he was a courageous and brilliant investigative writer whose insightful work opened the eyes and minds of many. He is survived by daughters Alissa, Megan, and Shane McGowan, parents J. Robert and Shirley Griffith McGowan, and brothers Michael and Craig.”

This brief tribute  comes belatedly as I expected that many others, better acquainted with McGowan’s work would chime in on this loss.

I appreciated McGowan’s work a great deal although I have never researched the Moon landings in detail and cannot claim with any confidence that they never happened, it is clear that the footage of the landings was all faked and it is highly likely that McGowan was correct to state the whole thing was a fraud.

Like the Holocaust, the Moon landings are used as a weapon to discredit those who question the Official story of any event as being either mentally imbalanced and “beyond the pale” in the case of the Moon landings, or ethno-religious hatred in the case of the Holocaust.

McGowan did some of the best and most important work on the Boston bombings of 2013.

Special Report on the Boston Marathon: The Curious Case of the Man Who Could Only Sit Down, Part 1

It was after this radio appearance on April 13th, 2015. that McGowan received a message that he should “watch out for cancer.” A week later he was diagnosed although it is entirely possible that these two things are not connected.

That work, along with his excellent 911 research and analysis, of 911, the Laurel Canyon intelligence driven music scene and so many other issues  created a proud legacy and set a fine example to others who would aspire to discover and share the truth.

The special thing about McGowan was the way he combined the hard headed approach of the professional journalist with the wild eyed freedom of the conspiracy researcher.

The Pedocracy.

Anyone in doubt as to the quality and versatility of McGowan’s writing need only read “the Pedocracy” McGowan’s little known but extremely high quality expose of the cover up of child abuse crimes and the blackmail networks that sit above them, he also produced a powerful account of the Finders cover up.

The Pedophocracy by David McGowan

The Pedocracy is one of the best pieces of writing on the subject, right up there with “the Franklin Scandal” by Nick Bryant and it is a work that Google have chosen to exclude from their search results.

Even a search on the precise title and author provide results that at  best, contain links to McGowan’s piece.

Searches on Startpage were equally useless.

Thanks.

Many thanks to Dave McGowan for his work and I hope he is in a better place and no matter how long it takes or how many fall along the way, one day the truth will emerge and hopefully Dave McGowan’s fine work helping so many on that journey will be properly remembered at that time.

LIVE UPDATES: ASSANGE HEARING DAY SEVENTEEN—US Intel Spying on Assange Detailed in Court, Including Plans to Kidnap or Poison Him

Consortium News is virtually “inside” the courtroom at Old Bailey, viewing the proceedings by video-link. Defense goes early with testimony on surveillance and threats to Assange on Day Seventeen of his resumed extradition hearing.

By Joe Lauria
Special to Consortium News

United States intelligence discussed plans to kidnap or poison Julian Assange, the court was told on Wednesday.

After the prosecution said it was unable to do checks on the two anonymous witnesses from the UC Global case in Spain, defense attorney Mark Summers read out the testimony in court a day earlier than had been expected.

The first witness described how he worked for David Morales, founder of UC Global, and was a 50 percent owner.  The witness discussed how in July 2016 Morales insisted on going alone to a security conference in Las Vegas.

When he returned to the Spanish offices, Morales spoke of a “flashy” contract with the Sands casino, owned by billionaire Sheldon Adelson to provide security on Adelson’s yacht. The witness said it did not make sense because the yacht already had security.

Morales told the office that the company, which had only one contract, to provide security at Ecuador’s London embassy, was now “playing in the big leagues.” He said the firm had “switched over to the dark side” in working with his “American friends” who will “get us contracts all over the world.”

The witness said he learned that Morales had an “illegal contract to get sensitive information about Julian Assange and the president of Ecuador.”

The witness said that Morales’ contact in Las Vegas was Zohar Lahav, the Israeli-American vice president for executive protection at Las Vegas Sands. Lahav had “agreed to cooperate with U.S. intelligence to provide them with information about Assange,” anonymous witness one testified.

UC Global had been using security cameras at the embassy that did not provide audio and daily reports were written by UC Global staff from London. “The parallel agreement with the U.S. authorities required that these reports would be sent to ‘the dark side,’” as Morales called it.

Morales traveled twice a month to bring these reports to his “American friends” in the U.S. The witness said, “I asked who the American friends were and he said U.S. intelligence. When I asked him specifically who, he cut me off.”

Meanwhile the witness noticed that Morales had suddenly grown noticeably wealthier. The witness testified that Morales was paid 200,000 Euros a month by the U.S.

After Donald Trump’s victory, the witness said, Morales’ trips to the U.S. increased and by July 2017 Morales ordered that the cameras at the embassy be replaced to provide audio as well as images.

A team from Spain went regularly to London to collect the recordings on hard drives and Morales would bring them to the United States.

Morales now demonstrated an “obsession” with the audio and video surveillance of Assange’s meetings with his lawyers at the embassy because the “American friends had requested it,” the witness said.

“I then put an end to our relationship and sold my shares,” said the witness.

Anonymous Witness Two

The second witness joined UC Global in February 2015 as an IT expert. He repeated that when Morales came back from first U.S. trip he announced that “we were moving into the premier league” and that the company had “moved to the dark side.”

Morales then said that the “American friends” were vetting the company so that  everything had to be encrypted.  After Trump’s victory, Morales became obsessed with obtaining as much as information on Assange as possible, and asked the witness to create a task force to capture and process the embassy material.

He was ordered to put in the new cameras and not to share its specifications and testified that he was ordered to lie if anyone asked whether the cameras also recorded audio. In June 2017, Morales received instructions that cameras  needed to be installed to provide “streaming” so our “friends in the U.S. could gain access to the interior of the embassy in real time,” the witness testified,

Morales said these instructions came from “the highest spheres.”

“I was alarmed and I told him it wasn’t possible to do,” the witness said. But Morales then emailed instructions in English, which the witness assumes came from the “American friends.”

The witness still said he refused because it was “manifestly illegal.”

In January 2017 the witness said Morales asked him to bug the entire embassy on orders of the Americans. Morales said the purpose was to record meetings with visitors but especially with his attorneys. Personnel in the embassy asked to monitor  the lawyers as requested by the “American friends, ” the witness testified.

They were also asked to gather Assange’s fingerprints from a glass, to steal documents from Assange and then to steal the diaper of a baby who was regularly brought to visit Assange. The Americans wanted to establish whether Assange was the father, but the witness said he refused and instead alerted the mother not to bring the child back to the embassy.

In January 2019 the witness said he was ordered to have stickers saying “CCTV” placed on the embassy windows. When he asked for what purpose, the witness testified that the “Americans were using laser microphones to listen into the embassy but that Assange was using a white noise machine that caused vibration of the windows. The stickers eliminated the vibrations.”

The second anonymous witness testified that in 2017 he was shown the iPad of an Assange lawyer that had been copied while meeting with Assange.

The witness said the Americans were “very nervous” about the visit of then California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher to Assange. “Morales asked me to control everything to do with that visit,” the witness said.

Morales also spoke with him about entering the Spanish offices of Assange lawyer Bathasar Garcon and some months later it was reported that those offices had been broken into.

Extreme Measures

In December 2017, the witness testified that “the U.S. was desperate” to get Assange out of the embassy, and that “more extreme measures should be used.”

“Leaving the embassy door open to allow Mr. Assange to be kidnapped and even poisoning was under consideration,” the witness testified Morales told him.  Summers for the defense then explained to the court how both witnesses approached an attorney who contact a court in Madrid that ordered an arrest warrant and search of Morales’ home, and issued charges against him.

Ellsberg Reaction

Before it was known that the testimony would come on Wednesday rather than Thursday, Daniel Ellsberg, the Pentagon Papers whistleblower who testified for the defense in the second week, wrote in an email message:

There has been a dramatic development in the Assange case: word that on Thursday (giving a day for the prosecutor to confer with the DOJ) there will be anonymous testimony that the CIA not only surveilled Assange’s conversations with his lawyers (and everyone else) in the Ecuadorian embassy but  they plotted to kidnap or poison him!That’s essentially the same information that ended my case and confronted Nixon with impeachment, leading to his resignation!  In other words, Julian may, miraculously, walk free on the basis of this (eventually), just as I did!

It is impossible to know of course what impact this testimony will have on Judge Vanessa Baraitser. That it was allowed by Baraitser with no objection from the defense is significant. However this is testimony from an ongoing case that has not been adjudicated, and may not be by the time Baraitser issues her decision in January.

However that this testimony showed that the prosecuting government prioritized surveillance on Assange’s privileged conversations with attorneys and that that government considered kidnapping or killing him has to weigh on her mind as the sort of government misconduct that set Ellsberg free, as he himself says.

Should she not find in his favor it is testimony that would perhaps have a better chance on appeal before the British High Court.

comments:

  • Linda Furr September 30, 2020 at 12:06 Sheldon Adelson? Why would a Las Vegas Casino billionaire care so much about Assange publishing harmful info about US war efforts? Oh, yes. Israel’s dreams of a “greater Israel” depend on US overthrowing strong secular leaders like Saddam Hussein, Mohammar Gadhaffi, and Bashir Assad for the Oded Yinon Plan 1981 to come to fruition. Tough luck, people of the Middle East. The US have billionaires who must be served.
  • George Sands September 30, 2020 at 12:05 I commend Consortium News for their dedication concerning Assange, and particularly for the fantastic live tweeting, daily video summaries, re-publishing Craig Murray and other important contributers like Jonothan Cook and others. I was extremely excited to hear that the UC Global / Spanish case materials would be allowed (anonymous witness statements!) and overjoyed to see the live tweets as some of that evidence was read in today. That the US was spying on the defense should be enough for the judge to throw this whole thing out. But, she is in a tough position with the government asking her to hold the extradition hearing (meaning they want the extradition) and having to represent UK jurisprudence. If I were her, I would *latch* onto the UC global evidence as a way to deny extradition purely on legal grounds. It takes all the “Freedom of the Press” and other political topics out of the judgement. i.e this is not a fair trial. The damage that she would do to the reputation of the british legal system if she were to allow extradition would be significant. But, here’s the rub. If she grants and it gets taken to the High Court, Assange may get “better justice”, but he’ll languish in jail for another long period. She could declare some form of “mis-trial” and ask that another be held in some “I’m not going to make a final decision” move, in which case Assange remains in jail. And, it is this second move which I think is far more likely. As we have seen regarding the US putting pressure on Germany and Italy during the case, they will be throwing the kitchen sink at the UK to not allow Assange out of prison. This is why Baraitser cannot ‘deny’ the extradition. If she does, Assange is instantly free. Bail violation is served. Swedish investigation dropped. There is nothing else in the way. Thus, she must declare either “allow” the extradition or some “mistrial” type of thing which keeps Assange in jail. The only way for Assange to regain freedom is the press and the public. This is why I commend Consortium News so heartily. You are doing your bit. And wonderfully, just as Assange put the general commercial media to shame by actually informing the public with a 100% accuracy record, you are now shaming most of the media by your efforts to report on this hugely important case, when they are not.

  • WikiLeaks is a multi-national media organisation and associated library. It was founded by its publisher Julian Assange in 2006. WikiLeaks specialises in the analysis and publication of large datasets of censored or otherwise restricted official materials involving war, spying and corruption. It has so far published more than 10 million documents and associated analyses. “WikiLeaks is a giant library of the world’s most persecuted documents. We give asylum to these documents, we analyze them, we promote them and we obtain more.” – Julian Assange said in an interview with Der Spiegel. The work of WikiLeaks has faced backlash from established authorities in the US resulting in an indictment against their publisher Julian Assange for their publishing work. He was arrested on 11th of April 2019 and imprisoned in maximum security prison HMP Belmarsh in London. The US Department of Justice has laid out charges against him with a potential 175 years imprisonment under Special Administration Measures. We stand in solidarity with Julian Assange through his ordeal. Please join us on Thursday 1st of October outside The Old Bailey in marking 14 years of WikiLeaks publishing. We shall hold posters marking the individual WikiLeaks Releases, hold banners Thanking WikiLeaks for their work in revealing war crimes and corruption.
