The Re-Opening Of The Swedish Assange Case Should Be Welcomed

Authored by Craig Murray,

That the Swedish investigation into the rape allegation against Julian Assange is being re-opened is something that ought to be welcomed. The alternative would be for this accusation to hang unresolved over Julian’s head forever. The Swedish prosecutors now need finally, as my father used to say, either to piss or get off the pot. They need to decide whether there is sufficient evidence to charge or not.

There is no reason for delay. The Swedish police have had seven years to investigate this case and all the evidence has been gathered and all statements taken – the last being the interview of Julian Assange in the Ecuadorean Embassy in 2017. Hopefully to review the evidence and decide whether to charge will not now be a lengthy procedure. It is worth noting, contrary to much misreporting, Julian Assange has never been charged with anything in Sweden.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Assange is to leave the British prison in which he is now languishing, having him be in a Swedish courtroom may be profoundly less hazardous to his health; in an American jail, there is always, it appears, to be room for political assassinations.

If you don't believe me, just think of the murder of Whitey Bulger in a Federal jail last year.

Senior Admin Official: "A Trade Deal Isn't Close; US Could Be In For A Long Trade War"

Despite a flurry of meandering hot-then-cold trade war tweets from President Trump, US futures have been powering higher all morning. But then along came Axios to pour cold water all over the growing trade-deal optimism after the stock market's worst one-day selloff since January.

According to Axios, senior administration officials told senior White House reporter Jonathan Swan that a trade deal with China "isn't close" and that the US "could be in for a long trade war."

Swans' sources said the differences between the two sides "are so profound taut, based on his read of the situation, he can't see the fight getting resolved before the end of the year."

That's a much longer timeline than the three-four weeks Trump touted Monday night, who touted the possibility that the a meeting with President Xi at the G-20 in Japan next month could yield an agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps a slight bit of flexibility on both sides, might work to get these talks moving again; but until that happens, get really ready for a really tough economic time ahead.

Boeing Settlement Hinges On How Long Doomed 737 Max Passengers Knew They Were Going To Die

Boeing and its insurers are likely to pay an amount of money to the families of those who died in the 737 Max crashes that is directly proportional to one grim measure: how long the victims knew they were plunging to their deaths. Additionally, as part of a legal fight to determine Boeing's financial liability after the 737 Max crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia, passenger's families could be paid compensation based on grief, sorrow, loss of companionship and lost future paychecks.

According to an estimate from Bloomberg, the claims could total as much is $1 billion, and some legal experts believe the final amount could be even more, if evidence shows that Boeing knew about flaws in their planes prior to the tragedies taking place. This idea has already prompted investor lawsuits against the company, claiming it hid safety risks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boeing used to be a company with a stellar reputation for safety; that there was knowledge on the part of the execs, that there were real, possibly fatal flaws in the design these 737s, is more than a little scary.

Whoever knew about this, and sat on it, should be looking at real jail time, and NOT, thank you very much, in a Club Fed.

Will Amazon Put UPS Out Of Business?

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

Amazon's new robot packs 600+ boxes per hour vs humans at under 200. With that announcement comes a $10K offer to quit.

Lights Out Warehouse

Please consider New Amazon Machines Pack 600 Orders Per Hour, Could Replace Thousands of Jobs.

The new machines, known as the CartonWrap from Italian firm CMC Srl, pack much faster than humans. They crank out 600 to 700 boxes per hour, or four to five times the rate of a human packer, the sources said. The machines require one person to load customer orders, another to stock cardboard and glue and a technician to fix jams on occasion.

Including other machines known as the “SmartPac,” which the company rolled out recently to mail items in patented envelopes, Amazon’s technology suite will be able to automate a majority of its human packers. Five rows of workers at a facility can turn into two, supplemented by two CMC machines and one SmartPac, the person said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unskilled labor is rapidly becoming a thing of the past; those with jobs very much at risk, because of these developments, will have to learn how to talk to the "brains" of these systems, and some will simply not be able to do it, or keep up with the rapidly evolving technology.

To get a better, and perhaps, chilling view of a potentially very dystopian future, watch the film "AI", short for artificial intelligence.

There is a scene in the film, where the humans are so furious, about having been pre-empted by robots, doing the jobs they used to to, and in essence, taking over their jobs, that they start torturing some very human-looking like robots to their extinction.

Farm Crisis: Soybeans Crash To Decade-Low As Trade War Intensifies

Soybean futures fell 25% in 50 weeks since the inception of President Trump's trade war early last summer.

CBOT Soybeans futures plunged to their lowest level in a decade as China on Monday said it would raise tariffs on $60 billion in US goods in retaliation for Trump's decision on Friday to raise duties on $200 billion in Chinese products to 25% from 10%. The deepening trade war has pushed American farmers onto the verge of disaster.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These people, along with unemployed factory workers, were the essence of his base; he knew, in just what tone, and demeanor, to address their anger and ire about jobs leaving the US, and about farmers who couldn't get a fair deal on their crops.

Now that they believe they have been betrayed by the man they had hoped would save them, what is going to happen now in 2020?!

Unless he is able to get the tariffs stopped and soon, and staunch the economic blood-loss, leading to our farmers' collective financial ruin, he is going to lose this critical part of his base in the next election.

These are people who do not forget betrayal easily.

Burnout Nation

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

The economic and financial stresses will exceed the workforce's carrying capacity in the next recession.

A number of recent surveys reflect a widespread sense of financial stress and symptoms of poor health in America's workers, particularly the younger generations. There's no real mystery as to the cause of this economic anxiety:

-- competition for secure, well-paid jobs that were once considered the birthright of the middle class is increasingly fierce;

-- the pay and predictability of the jobs that are available are low;

-- high-paying jobs are extraordinarily demanding, forcing workers to sacrifice everything else to keep the big-bucks position;

-- the much-lauded gig economy is tracking the Pareto Distribution, as 80% of the income accrues to the top 20%, and those trying to earn a lower-middle class income in the gig economy are working long hours to do so;

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I know that Mike and I are working harder than we ever have before, in terms of hours necessary just to keep WRH alive; it has become a plus-time, full-time vocation for both of us, and the emotional and financial strains of this are definitely affecting us negatively.

BEX ALERT - US Officials Claim Iran or Iranian Proxies Damaged Ships in UAE Waters - Report

US officials said Monday that initial assessments of an incident over the weekend in which four oil tankers were damaged by explosions in Emirati waters point to Iranian involvement.

Four oil tankers — two Saudi, one Emirati and one Norwegian — off the coast of the Fujairah, in the United Arab Emirates, suffered on Sunday what the UAE Foreign Ministry called "sabotage operations." The explosion blew a five-to-10 foot hole in each ship near or just below the water line, a US military team told AP Monday.

"Iranian or Iranian-backed proxies" are believed to be behind the attack, according to US officials.

Tariffs: The Taxes That Made America Great

A tariff may be described as a sales or consumption tax the consumer pays, but tariffs are also a discretionary and an optional tax.

If you choose not to purchase Chinese goods and instead buy comparable goods made in other nations or the USA, then you do not pay the tariff.

China loses the sale. This is why Beijing, which runs $350 billion to $400 billion in annual trade surpluses at our expense is howling loudest. Should Donald Trump impose that 25% tariff on all $500 billion in Chinese exports to the USA, it would cripple China’s economy. Factories seeking assured access to the U.S. market would flee in panic from the Middle Kingdom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me more than the tariffs, is the uncomfortable understanding about how quickly trade wars can become shooting wars.

and I can guarantee you, we do NOT need a shooting war with China right now.

Our military doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the manufacturing; or the money to insure a positive outcome to a war with China (and/or Russia)

Apple Needs A 14% iPhone Price Hike To Offset Higher Tariffs: JPM

One of the companies that has been hit the hardest following the latest escalation in trade war between the US and China, and which not only is reliant on Chinese consumers to purchase its products and services on the mainland, but also produces iPhones in China and is thus subject to a double whammy of anti-American sentiment and higher export tariffs, is Apple, with its shares sliding -11% since the start of last week and 5% on Monday, on fresh worries relating to escalating trade war and the imposition of tariffs on imports from China, as well as on concerns over the consequences of the recent Supreme Court decision allowing a lawsuit against Apple practices in the App store.

In a note published this morning, JPMorgan writes that while it is difficult to precisely attribute the magnitude of the share price decline between tariffs and the lawsuits, "it is fair to say that the majority of the share price decline is driven by tariff
concerns."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Understanding this, is going to cause people to look for cheaper alternatives, at least for the time being.

Ron Paul Warns Losing Income Tax Privacy Is A Real Danger

Authored by Ron Paul via The Unz Review,

Last week the New York Times published some of President Trump’s 1980s and 1990s tax returns information. The information detailed President Trump’s financial difficulties during that time. While you would not know it from reading some media reports, this is old news. In fact, President Trump openly discussed his financial difficulties on his popular reality television show.

What should be of great concern is the possibility that the person who leaked the returns - who the paper says has legal access to President Trump’s tax records - is an IRS employee seeking to undermine the president. This would hardly be the first time an IRS employee has leaked confidential information because he disagreed with the taxpayer’s politics. In 2014 the agency had to pay the National Organization for Marriage 50,000 dollars after an IRS employee gave names of the group’s donors to the group’s opponents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whoever did this should be handed their hat, and immediately sacked; this was just a really vindictive thing to do.

But the reality is, it could happen to ANYONE the government really dislikes, and wants to see driven from their job.

The Media’s Shameful Handling Of Bolton’s Iran Threat Claims Recalls The Run-Up To The Iraq War

Media-savvy U.S. government officials, political operatives, and lawmakers and their staffs from all political parties and ideological persuasions have no doubt, throughout the history of our great country, duped a fair-minded but unwitting reporter into writing a juicy story in order to get a piece of information into the public bloodstream without their fingerprints on it.

This is, in large part, how the Bush administration sold the U.S. invasion of Iraq to the American people: Feeding knowingly bogus or unsubstantiated intelligence on Iraq’s (nonexistent) WMD programs to reporters, who then published it as fact, without much in the way of critical scrutiny.

Despite the lessons we’ve learned from that debacle, it’s happening again with regard to the Trump administration’s march toward war with Iran.

Entrapments R US

By Janet Phelan

Recent actions by the Trump administration have commentators wondering if Trump’s pursuit of whistleblowers is simply a continuation of the prior administration’s War on Revealers. The Trump administration’s decisions to attempt to extradite WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange and to repeatedly jail Chelsea Manning in an effort to coerce her testimony against Assange may only be the most visible manifestations of a policy which protects, rather than exposes, Deep State agendas.

In fact, the Trump administration has exceeded Obama’s administration in its pursuit of whistleblowers. Last week...

RadicalPress Fundraising campaign by Arthur Topham, charged in Canada under the guise of "Hate Speech" by a forign lobby

Dear Supporters of Freedom of Speech,

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: this is a fundraiser for legal defense/challenge purposes.

As many of you are likely aware I was arrested again at my home in Cottonwood, B.C. on Monday, August 6th, 2018 by the Surrey based BC Hate Crime Team, allegedly for breaching my Probation Order. I was held in jail at the Quesnel, B.C. RCMP detachment while the "Team" awaited approval for a search warrant. When it was signed by a judge they entered my home and removed my computers and electronic files plus my hardcopy password book. I was released around 10 pm and driven back to my home by Cpl. Anthony Statham, lead officer for the "Team" after signing a "Promise to Appear" form stating that I would be present at the Quesnel Provincial Courthouse on October 16, 2018.

US mainstream media is contributing to rising risk of war with Iran

The U.S. mainstream press and television networks are committing media malpractice and contributing to the rising risk of an American war with Iran.

* The cable TV networks are almost completely ignoring the Trump administration’s threatening moves, which could end in either a violent accident or a deliberate attack by Israel, America, or both. Instead, CNN and MSNBC continue covering Russiagate, ad nauseum.

* U.S. print media is also mostly ignoring the story, except to take dictation from Pentagon sources without doing independent reporting.

* The pundits, with one exception, are also still silent.

Privacy Experts, Senators Demand Investigation of Amazon’s Child Data Collection Practices

Last year, a coalition of privacy advocates and child psychologists warned against putting an Amazon Alexa speaker anywhere near your child on the fairly reasonable grounds that developing minds shouldn’t befriend always-on surveillance devices, no matter how cute the packaging. Now, a group of privacy researchers, attorneys, and U.S. senators are calling on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate Amazon’s alleged violations of COPPA, a law protecting the littlest users of all.

IF Mike and I had children, we wouldn't want them anywhere near one of these devices.

After Assange, Ecuador’s Lenin Moreno escalates persecution of critics and perceived foes

The US-backed, neoliberal Ecuadorian leader is persecuting Swedish software developer Ola Bini for his political sympathies, censoring critical media, and jailing progressive leadership in a sweeping crackdown.
By Denis Rogatyuk

The arrest, sentencing and the plans for the extradition of Julian Assange from the United Kingdom to the United States continue to provoke waves of condemnation from all around the world, along with disgust at the government of Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno and its increasing subordination to the US.

This was the first time in living memory of many that a government allowed a foreign law enforcement agency to enter its sovereign territory – the Ecuadorian embassy in London – and take into its custody a publisher of journalism, whose status as a refugee had been recognized internationally by the United Nations, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, Amnesty International and other international organizations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all those who believe Assange should be prosecuted, I have one question; when was the guy ever proven to be wrong?!?

The short answer is, NEVER.

I rest my case.

Syria - OPCW Engineering Assessment: The Douma 'Chemical Weapon Attack' Was Staged

Source: Moon of Alabama

On April 7 2018 Syrian 'rebels' claimed that the Syrian government used chlorine gas and Sarin in an attack on the besieged Douma suburb near the Syrian capital Damascus. They published a series of videos which showed dead bodies of mainly women and children.

The claim of the 'chemical attack' was made shortly after U.S. President Trump had announced that he wanted U.S. troops to leave Syria. It was designed to "pull him back in" which it indeed did. In an illegal 'retaliation' the U.S., Britain and France launched a number of cruise missiles against Syria. Most of them failed to reach their targets.

Moon of Alabama published a number of pieces on the issue which are listed below.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to feel very sorry for those who continue to believe this government's lies, when it comes to warfare; the "excuses" for the vast amount of US meddling, are primarily just that; "excuses" to serve as justification for US governmental and military intervention.

Liberal talk show host Rachel Maddow hasn’t yet come to terms with the fact that the entire Donald Trump-Russia collusion hoax has turned out to be just that (a hoax) as she continues to spew her garbage on air even claiming the president had lied.

Maddow told former FBI General Counsel James Baker in a one-on-one sitdown conversation on Friday that the Mueller Report describes “factual connections” to the Russians.

However, she refuses to point out that Robert Mueller himself and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton actually were colluding with the Russians and were involved in talks that lead to the covert sale of one-fifth of U.S. uranium reserves in which the Clintons and others profited.

Assessment by the engineering sub-team of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission investigating the alleged chemical attack in Douma in April 2018

The conclusion of the Engineering Assessment is unequivocal: the alternative hypothesis that the cylinders were manually placed in position is “the only plausible explanation for observations at the scene”.

Our last Briefing Note listed two other key findings:

It is no longer seriously disputed that the hospital scene was staged: there are multiple eyewitness reports supported by video evidence
The case fatality rate of 100%, with no attempt by the victims to escape, is unlike any recorded chlorine attack.

Taken together, these findings establish beyond reasonable doubt that the alleged chemical attack in Douma on 7 April 2018 was staged.

Al Baghdadi: The US Couldn’t Wish for a Greater Ally

By 2013 the US-led proxy war on Syria had stalled. A staged chemical attack and threats of direct US military intervention were thwarted by Russian efforts to diplomatically resolve the impasse through the declaration and disposal of Syria's entire chemical weapons arsenal.

With US-backed militants having already reached the full extent of their gains on the battlefield and now facing incremental but inevitable defeat -- the US appeared to be out of time and out of options.

Then suddenly -- as if on cue -- Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, alleged leader of the so-called "Islamic State in Iraq and Syria" (ISIS), was resurrected after US claims he had died years early, and provided the US with the perfect pretext to militarily intervene in Syria anyway...

US Warns Iran Might Attack Commercial Ships as US Military Buildup Continues

There is no real evidence that Iran is even considering taking such an action, but the US Maritime Administration issued a statement Friday claiming that it was possible Iran would attack commercial ships, maybe even oil tankers, in the waters around their country.

This is a continuation of US claims of an Iranian attack, which would be used to justify the ongoing US military buildup in the area. US ships, warplanes, and other assets continue to arrive in the region, so the excuses also continue.

CIA and Mossad conflating intelligence to push US into military conflict with Iran: Expert

America’s CIA and Israel’s Mossad are conflating and distorting intelligence to push the United States into a military conflict with Iran, according to Scott Bennett, a former US military psychological warfare officer and political commentator.

Bennett made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Thursday while commenting on a statement by American Muslim Representative Ilhan Omar who has accused the Donald Trump administration of preparing the ground for direct confrontation with Iran using inflated intelligence data.

The lawmaker said on Wednesday that the US intelligence community was making up excuses to justify hostile anti-Iran policies just as it did before the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

‘Beautiful Diverse Sensational’: Israel sets up fake Eurovision boycott page to counter BDS campaign

However, according to a new website promoted via ads on Google, it now stands for how Israel is “beautiful, diverse, sensational.”

Manufactured Iranian Threat in the Persian Gulf

National Security Adviser John Bolton released a statement on May 5 announcing that the United States is deploying the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf. The action is “to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.” There was no clarification regarding any warnings the United States had received about Iran’s activity.

Col. Larry Wilkerson reads the statement as an indication that Bolton is “trying to provoke something” in the gulf.

Big Pharma Exec Pushing Opioids Found Guilty of Racketeering

By Arjun Walia

The term “big pharma” is really making its rounds as more and more people become aware of the fact that the major corporations that manufacture the majority of our “medicine” are actually criminals. The latest example comes from a recent case where a federal jury found multiple top executives of Insys-Therapeutics, a well-known pharmaceutical company that sold a fentanyl-based painkiller (opioids), guilty of racketeering charges and contributing to America’s current opioid epidemic...

US Officials Continue to Falsely Accuse Iran of Planned Attack

If the United States does manage to con itself into attacking Iran, something which seems increasingly possible as days pass, the narrative seems to be that US officials are convinced that Iran is going to attack them first.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo once again warned Iran not to attack, a warning that seems particularly nonsensical following reports where intelligence officials confirmed that the claims of an Iranian plot were heavily exaggerated to justify anti-Iran measures.

The heavy exaggeration is just growing though, with unnamed US officials telling NBC News that an unnamed Iranian official had okayed a potential attack on a US military target, an attack these putative officials tied to putative Iranian proxies, which is almost always administration doublespeak for Iraqi militias.

Ex-NATO commander pushing Cold War xenophobia to line his pockets – Jimmy Dore to RT

Why is retired US Admiral James Stavridis writing Cold War propaganda in TIME magazine in 2019? The answer is simple, says comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore: he makes bank doing it.

While Stavridis’ recent article in TIME is pretty extreme in its calls to sanction sports teams, symphonies and academic institutions for the crime of being Russian, Dore has a rather simple explanation for the former admiral’s anti-Moscow gusto:

By Daniel Taylor

Think of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the most memorable character, HAL 9000, having a conversation with David. We are essentially building this system. We are building HAL.” – NSA researcher

In a little-noticed bombshell report by James Bamford in 2009, it was revealed that the NSA’s massive database of information, including social media, was being used to create an artificial intelligence system that would “…one day be possible to know not just where people are and what they are doing, but what and how they think.”...

‘Duly elected leader’: Pompeo echoes falsehood about Venezuela’s Guaido

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo repeated the false claim that US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido is the ‘duly elected leader’ of Venezuela. Apparently he reads CNN.

Speaking in London after his meeting with UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Pompeo told reporters that Venezuelans had chosen Guaido to lead them.

“The Venezuelan people have spoken through through constitutional mechanism, they have put Juan Guaido as their interim president, and he is the duly elected leader there,” Pompeo said, adding that “Maduro is on borrowed time.”

The West – Full Spectrum Dementia: Bogus News Media, Corruption of Academic Research, Irrational Lies Fed into the Educational System

Journalism has never been free of propaganda. News has always been produced and marketed like any other commodity, satisfying and shaping consumers’ opinions, loyalties and taste. Over the last thirty years, the US elites and their allies have effectively eliminated conventional journalism in favor of propaganda and counter-propaganda serving their relentless war on the majority world. Integral to that war in recent years has been the purposeful manipulation of social media so as to usurp and compromise any remnants of orthodox news reporting.

'Deep fake' videos that can make anyone say anything worry U.S. intelligence agencies

A video of a seemingly real news anchor, reading a patently false script saying things like the "subways always run on time" and "New York City pizza is definitely not as good as Chicago" gives a whole new meaning to the term fake news.

But that fake news anchor is a real example of a fascinating new technology with frightening potential uses.

I was stunned watching the Frankenstein mix of Steve Lacy's voice coming out of what looks like my mouth.
