Eyewitness to the Agony of Julian Assange

(02.10.2020)

Q: Having watched Julian Assange’s trial firsthand, can you describe the prevailing atmosphere in the court?

The prevailing atmosphere has been shocking. I say that without hesitation; I have sat in many courts and seldom known such a corruption of due process; this is due revenge. Putting aside the ritual associated with ‘British justice’, at times it has been evocative of a Stalinist show trial. One difference is that in the show trials, the defendant stood in the court proper. In the Assange trial, the defendant was caged behind thick glass, and had to crawl on his knees to a slit in the glass, overseen by his guard, to make contact with his lawyers. His message, whispered barely audibly through face masks, was then passed by post-it the length of the court to where his barristers were arguing the case against his extradition to an American hellhole.

Consider this daily routine of Julian Assange, an Australian on trial for truth-telling journalism…

Prozess gegen Julian Assange: Der Racheakt

Die Stimmung war erschütternd. Das sage ich, ohne zu zögern; ich habe bereits in vielen Gerichtssälen gesessen und selten so ein unfaires Verfahren erlebt; das hier ist schlicht ein Racheakt. Wenn man einmal von den Ritualen absieht, welche mit der „britischen Justiz“ verbunden sind, hat es einen bisweilen an einen stalinistischen Schauprozess erinnert.

Ein Unterschied dazu war, dass der Angeklagte in den Schauprozessen im Gerichtssaal stand. Im Assange-Prozess war er hinter dickes Glas gesperrt und musste, unter Aufsicht seines Wächters, auf Knien zu einem Schlitz im Glaskasten krabbeln, um Kontakt zu seinen Anwälten aufzunehmen. Seine Nachricht, die er kaum hörbar durch eine Maske flüsterte, wurde dann mittels kleiner Post-it-Zettelchen quer durch den ganzen Gerichtssaal getragen, dorthin, wo seine Anwälte ihn gegen die Auslieferung in ein amerikanisches Drecksloch verteidigten.

Führen Sie sich einmal folgende tägliche Routine von Julian Assange vor Auge …

SPOTLIGHT ON: BARBARA RIGGS

(Frühjahr / spring 2006)

„Once the first plane hit, we implemented emergency evacuation plans for our field office located in World Trade Center #7. All these individuals were in the process of being evacuated when the second plane hit. While the Secret Service law enforcement personnel assisted NYPD and NYFD evacuate the towers, the administrative staff and temporary personnel were escorted to safety. Secret Service Special Officer Craig Miller was killed while assisting in the evacuation of one of the towers. Later that day, the USSS New York Field Office was lost as World Trade Center #7 collapsed.

Thru monitoring radar and activating an open line with the FAA, the Secret Service was able to receive real time information about other hijacked aircraft. We were tracking two hijacked aircraft as they approached Washington, D.C. and our assumption was that the White House was a target. While the White House was evacuated, the Secret Service prepared to defend the facility.“

Berliner Behördenmikado

Am 2. August veröffentlichten wir hier das Interview mit den Hamburger Kutschern, die mit Deckung der zuständigen Hamburger Behörde dem Bundesgesetz PBefG guerillamäßig offensiv zur Durchsetzung gegen Söldner und Comandantes der sich überstaatlich verhaltenden Geldbesitzer temporär verholfen hatten und somit deren Vertreibung flankieren konnten.
Dabei kam das Gespräch zwangsläufig auf die gut durchdachte Jagdkampagne des umtriebigen, ersten Vorsitzenden der Berliner Taxivereinigung (BTV), Richard Leipold, mittels der App „btMv“, welche auch der Berliner Behörde „Labo“, für die Aufsicht des Taxi und Mietwagenverkehrs zuständig, seit ihrer öffentlichen Einführung 2018 bekannt gewesen ist.

Warum jedoch in Berlin mit dieser ultralegalen Strategie kein Bundesblumentopf, geschweige denn ein Positionsgewinn für das Taxigewerbe in Berlin zu gewinnen war, darüber haben wir mit ihm kürzlich gesprochen. Richard Leipold engagiert sich für das Taxigewerbe seit 35 Jahren, war zunächst Chef der Tarifkommission und danach in verschiedenen Funktionen in den Berliner Taxiverbänden zuständig.

Nurse documents chilling experiences at NY Hospital

Olzewski also noted:

„Ventilators are likely to be the leading cause of death in the pandemic. Sedatives and paralytics combined with barro-trauma from pressurized air kill 90 percent of those vented at Elmhurst (and by extension, much of the world).
Nosocomial (in-hospital) infection is the main vector of transmission. At Elmhurst, “Covid Rule-Out” and “Covid Confirmed” are housed in the same rooms. PPE is not changed between patients. Rooms are not properly or even marginally cleaned after Covid deaths.

Isolated from family, patients at Elmhurst who do not have “Do Not Resuscitate” orders are being treated as though they did. Nurses were told not to perform CPR on at least one “full code” patient, in violation of their oaths and licenses.
Delayed treatment due to the government mandate to stay inside, and the government recommendation to not seek early outpatient help, combined with the restriction in New York and elsewhere on promising, even proven therapies during the early stages of illness, massively compounds the death rate.

Much of which points to what may be the real reason black and brown Americans seem to be disproportionately affected by COVID-19. They are likely not dying because of some alleged genetic predisposition or a peculiar array of Covi-combustible comorbidities. But they are certainly dying from an underlying condition: a defunded, criminally negligent, and corrupt hospital system, which during this crisis seems to take extra pains to do them in, and which may be financially incentivized to do so.“

As a result of these diametrically opposed experiences, she has the ultimate „perspective on the pandemic“.

Der Brandanschlag in Solingen am 29. Mai 1993 und die halbe Wahrheit

Fazit: Das Versagen des Geheimdienstes ist sein Erfolg

Wenn man nicht wüsste, dass sich diese „Arbeit“ des Verfassungsschutzes, diese Art der Aufklärung vor einem Vierteljahrhundert zugetragen hat, würde man sofort an den „NSU-Skandal“ denken. Doch genau das wäre extrem kurz gesprungen.

Seit einem Vierteljahrhundert wird an dieser Praxis nichts geändert. Der Verfassungsschutz wird nicht dazu verpflichtet, seine V-Leute als Zeugen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Die politisch Verantwortlichen decken diese Form der Sabotage.

Seit einem Vierteljahrhundert begehen V-Leute (schwere) Straftaten und sind „safe“ (wie es der V-Mann ‚Kirberg‘ ausdrückt), wenn sie doch ins Visier polizeilicher Ermittlungen geraten.

Seit einem Vierteljahrhundert werden im Schutz des Geheimdienstes (mögliche) Beweismittel beseitigt, Ermittlungen sabotiert, was in der Summe zu dem Ergebnis führt, dass der Inlandsgeheimdienst „Verfassungsschutz“ noch mehr Geld, noch mehr Personal, noch mehr politische Schützenhilfe bekommt, von jeder Regierung, in jedem Farbton.

Und als wollten die politisch Verantwortlichen unter Beweis stellen, dass das Eingestehen und Bedauern von „Pannen“ nicht mehr ist als Juckpulver, hat die amtierende Bundesregierung noch etwas draufgelegt: Im Zuge der Nicht-Aufklärung der NSU-Morde wurden die ‚Arbeitsbedingungen‘ des Verfassungsschutzes deutlich verbessert. Musste dieser bislang verleugnen, verdecken und vertuschen, dass V-Leute an (schweren) Straftaten beteiligt sind bzw. diese ermöglicht haben, sind sie nun weitgehend straffrei gestellt:

Fox’s Wallace presses O’Brien on contradiction between Trump threat claims, briefing

“It does seem to be a contradiction. He’s telling Laura Ingraham [about imminent attacks], but in a 75-minute classified briefing, your top national security people never mentioned this to members of Congress. Why not?” Wallace asked O’Brien on “Fox News Sunday.”

“I wasn’t at the briefing, and I don’t know how the Q&A went back and forth. Sometimes it depends on the questions that were asked or how they were phrased,” O’Brien said.

Iran has vowed revenge against the U.S. But it seems to be in no hurry.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran refuses to take any emotional and hasty action,” Brig. Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi, a spokesman for the armed forces, told Iran’s Mehr news agency on Saturday.

“We will set up a plan, patiently, to respond to this terrorist act in a crushing and powerful manner,” he said. “We are the ones who set the time and place of our reciprocal response.”

„Let me tell you one thing: Our leadership has officially announced that we have never been seeking war and we will not be seeking war,“ Dehghan said.

„It was America that has started the war. Therefore, they should accept appropriate reactions to their actions. The only thing that can end this period of war is for the Americans to receive a blow that is equal to the blow they have inflicted. Afterward they should not seek a new cycle.“

Lula To Fight Neoliberalism to Restore Democracy in Brazil

„The days I was detained in the Federal Police (of Curitiba) strengthened me politically and today I have a greater will to fight until the restoration of democracy in Brazil,“ he said.

Nun ist gewiss, weshalb RAI-News 24 das Assad-Interview cancelte (Video)

Herr Präsident, Sie sind mehrere Male bezichtigt worden, chemische Waffen eingesetzt zu haben. Und dies war das Instrument vieler Entscheidungen. Die Schlüsselpunkte und roten Linien für viele Entscheidungen. Vor ungefähr einem Jahr fand das Douma-Ereignis statt. Das als eine weitere rote Linie angesehen wurde, nachdem dort Bombardierungen stattfanden, die weitaus schlimmer hätten ausfallen können, doch es hörte auf. An diesen Tagen kommt durch Wiki-Leaks heraus, dass in dem Bericht womöglich etwas falsch dargestellt wurde. Also niemand ist bislang in der Lage mitzuteilen, was wirklich passiert ist, doch in der Berichterstattung über das Geschehen könnte etwas falsch gelaufen sein.

Seit Anbeginn dieses Narrativs betreffend chemischer Waffen, haben wir gesagt, dass wir diese nicht einsetzen. In unserer Lage ist es unmöglich, sie zu verwenden. Aus vielen Gründen. Sagen wir logistische Gründe.

Geben Sie mir einen!

Ein ganz einfacher Grund. Wenn Sie vorrücken, weshalb sollten Sie Chemiewaffen einsetzen? Wir sind am Vorrücken, warum sollten wir davon Gebrauch machen? Wir befinden uns in einer hervorragenden Lage, also warum sollten wir sie verwenden? Insbesondere 2018. Dies ist einer der Gründe. Zweitens, ein sehr konkreter Beweis, der jenes Narrativ widerlegt. Sollten sie Chemiewaffen zum Einsatz bringen. Dies ist eine Massenvernichtungswaffe, wir sprechen hier von tausenden Todesopfern zumindest hunderte. Dies hat sich jedoch niemals zugetragen. Es gibt nur diese Videos von inszenierten chemischen Attacken. Der Report, den Sie soeben erwähnt haben, die kürzlich erfolgten Leaks, besagen, dass es eine Diskrepanz gab zwischen dem, was wir in dem Video zu sehen bekamen, und was sie als Experten wahrgenommen haben. Der Chloranteil, von dem sie sprachen. Zunächst einmal Chlor ist kein Material für Massenvernichtungswaffen. Zweitens. Die Menge, die sie gefunden haben, könnten Sie in Ihrem Haus haben, zumal es in vielen Haushaltsartikeln vorkommt, die man beispielsweise zur Reinigung benutzt. Die exakt selbe Menge. Dies ist was die OPCW-Organisation getan hat. Sie hat den Bericht verfälscht und getürkt, nur weil die Amerikaner es so wollten. Glücklicherweise beweist dieser Report, dass alles was wir die vergangenen Jahre seit 2013 gesagt haben korrekt war. Wir hatten recht, sie lagen falsch. Dies ist ein Beweis, ein konkreter Beweis in Bezug auf diese Angelegenheit. Also nochmals, die OPCW ist voreingenommen, politisiert und amoralisch. Und diese Organisationen sollten eigentlich parallel mit den Vereinten Nationen zusammenarbeiten um weltweit mehr Stabilität zu schaffen. Stattdessen wurden sie als amerikanische und westliche Arme benutzt, um weiteres Chaos zu schaffen.”

US General Hints at War With Iran As US Troops Mass on Border

McKenzie noted that Iran increased its military spending from its recent low in 2014 to $27.3 billion, or six percent of GDP, in 2018.

White Helmets Whitewash: founder’s death, OPCW scandal lift mask on al-Qaeda’s ally in Syria

We speak to The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal, whose reporting has exposed the White Helmets’ ties to jihadists groups and its use as a PR tool for Western military intervention in Syria.

“We don’t know if there’s a cover-up around his [Le Mesurier’s] death — I can’t go that far,” Blumenthal says. “The real cover-up is around his life, as he’s being celebrated everywhere from the Guardian to the New York Times as this heroic figure, this kind of Gandhi of conflict stabilization; when his legacy is actually very dark and stained with blood.”

Putin praises Saudi-Russian relations, condemns Aramco attacks, in interview

“If anyone thinks that seizing tankers and attacking oil infrastructure can in any way affect cooperation between Russia and our Arab friends, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, that they can undermine or break down our cooperation with OPEC+, then they are profoundly wrong,” said Putin, addressing a question on regional security.

“On the contrary, we will forge ever closer ties because our main goal is to stabilize global energy markets,” he added, saying that Russia remained committed to the initiatives of the OPEC+ group of oil producers driven by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

„This is true for everyone. If Syria’s new legitimate government chooses to say that they have no more need for Russia’s military presence, this will be just as true for Russia.“

Trump said he asked his generals, „I want to know something before you go. How many people would be killed, in this case Iranians?“

The generals said approximately 150 people would be killed, the president said.

„I thought about it for a second and I said, you know what, they shot down an unmanned drone, plane, whatever you want to call it, and here we are sitting with a 150 dead people that would have taken place probably within a half an hour after I said go ahead,“ Trump said. „And I didn’t like it, I didn’t think, I didn’t think it was proportionate.“

Generalstreik in Brasilien am Freitag. Gewerkschaftsverband kritisiert Politik unter Präsident Bolsonaro. Ein Gespräch mit Jandyra Uehara Alves

„Seit dem durch ein Impeachmentverfahren legitimierten Putsch gegen Präsidentin Dilma Rousseff von der brasilianischen Arbeiterpartei PT im Jahr 2016 werden soziale und demokratische Errungenschaften hierzulande zurückgedreht. Zu den schlimmsten Maßnahmen gehörte das Einfrieren von Investitionen im Sozialbereich, in der Gesundheit und Bildung für 20 Jahre noch unter der Regierung von Michel Temer (Präsident von 2016 bis 2018, jW). Eine Resultat davon sind die heutigen Kürzungen im Bildungshaushalt um 30 Prozent. Dazu kam eine Reform des Arbeitsrechtes, die Errungenschaften aus den 1940er Jahren eliminierte.“
