Personal message from Whitewraithe – This really is the end.

Dear visitors and readers,

Unfortunately, with sad and profound trepidation I am informing everyone that my 10 year collaboration and friendship with Northerntruthseeker seems to be at an end.

It’s been a wonderful experience knowing this intelligent and passionate man from afar as we’ve never met since he lives in Canada.  However, over the past 18-months my life has taken a turn for the worse with a series of many unfortunate events that I’m still striving to overcome and attempt to move on.  Under these conditions it’s extremely difficult to stay positive when it’s down to life and death.

However, NT lives in a different world, a world where it’s very difficult for him to understand that some people live with terminal problems where life is constantly falling apart.  NT was blessed with superior intellect which provided the long-term position he’s held with a telecommunications company for over 35 years.  He’s ready to retire and once again I am attempting to rebuild my life at nearly 59.

Due to these differences we’ve had to go our separate ways because what brought us together as a team fighting political injustice no longer exists as I am basically out of the game.  I can no longer read and study the horrors of the world because it’s broken my psyche into a million pieces.  I’ve also recently learned that I am a highly sensitive individual and I feel the weight of the world pressing down on me constantly.  Therefore, I’ve had to turn my back on all that I have accomplished in nine years with this blog.   What I have accomplished though will stand on it’s own for the sake of posterity.

Right now, I’m getting ready to return to work and the real world once again and sincerely hope the situation will be a long lasting one until I can no longer work.

I would like to leave you with a video from one of the greatest super arena rock bands of all time – QUEEN.  The song is called Innuendo and here is a link to the lyrics and explanation of the song.  It was recorded toward the end of Freddie Mercury’s tragic short life, who was taken too soon from this world.   I still greatly miss his charisma as an entertainer and a very generous human being.

I will occasionaly look at comments and respond.

Signing off (for now.)

Russian official found dead from gunshot wounds in Moscow

WW~According to Jim Stone Freelance he has confirmed that these Russian assassinations are the real deal.  Read on……

 It’s a bad day for Russian President Vladimir Putin, with an ambassador shot dead in Turkey and now the head of a foreign ministry department killed in Moscow. Picture: Alexei Druzhinin, Sputnik, Kremlin Pool Photo via AP

THE head of a Russian foreign ministry department has been found shot dead in a Moscow apartment,

He has now been identified as 56-year-old Petr Polshikov, a high-ranking diplomat said to have been a senior figure in the Latin American section of the ministry.

A man’s body was found with a gunshot wound to the head, REN TV reported. Two shells were found along with a gun under the sink in the kitchen, a source told the news outlet. They claimed the wife of the man was also in the apartment.

Paramedics were filmed carrying a man wearing a white shirt into an ambulance.

The news comes on a dramatic day after nine were killed by a truck driving into a Berlin Christmas market and a Turkish off-duty police officer pulled out a gun at an art exhibition in Ankara and killed Russia’s ambassador to the country, Andrei Karlov, shouting: “Don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria!”

Police are still examining a number of theories over Polshikov’s death.

An Asian Peace Plan for the War on Christmas

As an ethnically Chinese Roman Catholic growing up in Singapore, Onam should never have been a festival I marked, much less celebrated.

But for many Indian-Singaporeans, Onam, a cross-faith festival that originated in the Indian state of Kerala, is a highlight of the year. And as a teenager, I was fortunate enough to have an Indian-Singaporean schoolmate invite me into her home to mark it with her family. Over the feast that her mother had laid out, Raadthie gamely explained the backstory of the harvest festival to me, involving the return of the divine King Mahabali to Kerala.

I’ve been thinking about that meal in recent weeks, as I’ve watched the venom spewed in the United States, where I now live, over the alleged “War on Christmas” — that’s the name Americans give to their internecine battle over wishing people “Merry Christmas” versus “Happy holidays” or other similarly inclusive phrases. It’s a fight that has metastasized to reach the highest levels of politics.

President Barack Obama has gotten some heat on social media for sending out a holiday — as opposed to Christmas — card again this year. At a victory rally in Wisconsin this month, Donald Trump stood in front of a line of Christmas trees and pointedly said, “When I started 18 months ago, I told my first crowd in Wisconsin that we are going to come back here some day and we are going to say ‘Merry Christmas’ again. Merry Christmas. So, Merry Christmas everyone. Happy New Year, but Merry Christmas.” The audience, primed by decades of right-wing media, reacted in ecstasy.

Such myopic maelstroms rage on in the United States, ever more violently, especially at the time of year when multiple winter holidays — Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and, yes, Christmas — are taking place. Which is why the aspect of my Onam experience that seems most relevant at such moments isn’t what our motley group of Chinese- and Indian-Singaporeans (and one Eurasian) ate or did at the celebration — it’s the fact that it was so wholly unremarkable and just plain natural that we all got together to celebrate in the first place.

Singapore is a multiethnic country where it was understood that divisiveness had no place in any conversation or at any dinner table. Growing up, I was taught that all holidays were equal. I was brought up to respect them all — which, at the very least, included offering well wishes to my friends who celebrated them, regardless of our religious or ethnic differences. And if we were lucky, we’d be invited over to toast that holiday — and eat.

The official public holidays listed by Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower include Christmas, Chinese New Year, Deepavali (or Diwali), the Muslim Hari Raya Puasa and Hari Raya Haji, Good Friday, and the Buddhist Vesak Day, among others. That reflects Singapore’s own eclectic heritage, mixing Chinese, Malay, and Indian with an overlay of British colonial culture. And once those holidays rolled around, we not only looked forward to having those days off — we also wished our Muslim, Hindu, Christian, and Buddhist friends well, even if we didn’t share the same faith. At my family’s Chinese New Year celebrations, it was always perfectly natural for our Hindu or Muslim friends and colleagues to pop by for a cup of tea and a bite to eat.

Out of all of these, Christmas is the holiday celebrated with the most immense gusto — albeit in a largely secular way outside of Christian circles. My friends of all religions and ethnicities in Singapore gather for Christmas dinners and brunches, exchanging presents and often even donning festive colors and regalia. (I’m sure if the tropical temperatures were more cooperative, ugly Christmas sweaters might even make an appearance.) Singapore’s Orchard Road becomes an explosion of tinsel and chintzy lights as each mall competes to see which can put up the most bombastic Christmas displays — many of which often drape their facades.

My childhood friend Joanne Balaraj recently wrote an email to me recalling the numerous holiday meals of all sorts she has always had in Singapore. “The friends’ houses we visited and the family meals we partook of on their religious holidays. My mother will always be famous among my friends for her sainted biryani, which was a staple on the dinner table at Christmas,” she wrote. “This is what it means to be Singaporean. What made each of us comprises part of a culture that made all of us.”

My Malay-Singaporean friend Amelia Abdullahsani noted recently that although she is Muslim, she not only sends out Christmas and holiday cards every year in December, but also that once the tinseled trees start appearing, she finds herself wishing everyone who crosses her path a Merry Christmas. “I’ve been saying ‘Merry Christmas’ my whole life,” she said. “It just rolls off my tongue like ‘How’s it going?’ or ‘Good afternoon,’ like the past couple weeks when I’m at the store or a restaurant. When I leave, I say ‘Merry Christmas’ instead of ‘Goodbye.’ I have no clue if the person celebrates Christmas or not — it’s just something I say as a greeting.”

Growing up, I often thought that the feasting, gift giving, and the rivers of sparkling lights that Singapore’s shopping streets become at this time of year were all a bit too much. I bristled at how it all made Christmas feel just a little too commercial. But now, after being in the United States and seeing the longtime bitterness over the simple act of holiday well-wishing, I see that it’s not.

Commercial or food-centric or not, the important point was that we all came together — and not just for Christmas but for Chinese New Year and Deepavali and everything in between. These festivals for us — regardless of religion or race — were about coming together to break bread and celebrate one another’s different cultures and understand them, after all. And it’s clearer to me now more than ever that we were the better for it — for us seeing the blurred lines of all our holidays and embracing them as one. I only wish my adopted country could see this, too.

EARLY RED ALERT WARNING – Is War on the Horizon?

From JIMSTONEFREELANCE.COM –

Remember the back channel communications censorship I talked about? I bet this is why!

America suddenly stopped all fuel supplies to Mexico, and it has created a crisis. This would be done in a run up to an ENORMOUS WAR.

Mexico suddenly ran out of gas this evening. There was no warning. Due to government policies, Mexico decided to remain dependent on American oil and gasoline. Pemex does not do much (if anything at all) with actually getting oil out of the ground. So Mexico is dependent completely on foreign oil and TODAY, WITHOUT WARNING, EVERY SINGLE GAS STATION SUDDENLY RAN COMPLETELY OUT OF GAS. THIS WOULD HAPPEN IF AMERICA SUDDENLY STOPPED SELLING OIL TO MEXICO TO BUILD UP SUPPLIES IN AMERICA FOR A HUGE WAR AND THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT SAID NOTHING ABOUT IT. SINCE WORD ON THE STREET IS THAT THE NEXT GAS WILL COME FROM CHINA AND THEY HAVE TO WAIT FOR IT TO ARRIVE, THAT SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY POSSIBILITY.

In the city I am in, Claudia and I went from station to station and arrived just as each station ran out of gas. And then panic set in, people started freaking out and mobbing whatever gas stations had any left. So I figured the neighboring state might have some, and have an old Fiat that sips gas like a mosquito (seriously, it is amazing) and had enough gas to drive into the neighboring state and back and still drive for a while if we found none. And it was obvious we were leading the pack out of town in a panic to find gas elsewhere.

I got to the first station in the neighboring state, and it had gas. So we topped it off totally. And then I drove into a medium sized city, bought 10 liter water bottles, found another station there AND GOT THE LAST GAS OUT OF THAT STATION. The pump was blowing air bubbles into the last bottle but we managed to get enough gas to drive at least 1500 KM. Then all the stations ran out of gas there too. We got word from that station that there will be no more gas until next year for the entire country.

HEADS UP: WORD ON THE STREET IS THAT THE NEXT GAS TO BE SOLD IN MEXICO WILL COME FROM CHINA AND NOT THE U.S.

AMERICA STOPPED SELLING GAS TO MEXICO ALL OF A SUDDEN AND MEXICO NOW HAS TO WAIT FOR TOTALLY UNSCHEDULED TANKERS TO ARRIVE FROM CHINA BEFORE THERE WILL BE ANY MORE GAS. There were street explanations made by common people, such as one of the refineries is having a problem but I know what refinery it is they were talking about and it has numerous cracking facilities and there is no way it could just go down. So that story is B.S.

Mexicans are also tweeting everywhere that it is just a game the government is playing and that they want to get the gas from China because it will be cheaper and the government will sell it for more and make a pile of cash. But that does not wash AT ALL because you don’t just suddenly hang a country with zero fuel. THE FIRST CARS WERE ALREADY STALLED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WHEN WE WERE COMING BACK. People are ALREADY running out of gas because you can’t buy it anywhere. Mexico is heading straight into an enormous crisis.

COLD HARD FACT WITH ALL OF THIS: This is a total hairbinger of war on the horizon. You could not get a better early indicator of an impending war than this, because absent the need to keep all the gas in preparation for war, why on earth would America just suddenly cut off the supply? War is the only plausible answer. WAR TO KEEP TRUMP FROM TAKING OFFICE. THIS IS YOUR EARLY WARNING, GET READY NOW.

Final comments (for now)

I just spoke to other Mexicans, and they said this has never happened before EVER. There have been times when individual stations ran out of a particular grade of gas, but not all gas, and NEVER at all stations. This is a totally unique situation that has NEVER happened before EVER. Trolls will hit this topic and poke fun at Mexico and they will tell you to ignore this. DO NOT IGNORE THIS, it is a HUGE situation and a genuinely unique occurrence. Even taxi cabs are stalled now, this is HUGE.

It is like someone just suddenly pulled the plug without warning, family in another city tweeted they could not get gas, so we checked where we live and stations were closing left and right as their pumps suddenly ran dry (because the ones that still had gas were getting mobbed and drained) and then we drove out of state and the stations there were running out of gas also. We got the last of it out of the second station we got gas from (fortunately) right when we maxed out what we could get. We’re set for months with careful driving because that Fiat eats so little gas, and no, I feel lucky, not selfish because though for us it was a lot of gas, we only got enough to top off a large SUV. our gas is not just going to blow out a 4 inch exhaust pipe.

I am worried, because if gas really is going to take as long to arrive as they say, people are going to FREAK OUT. It might be dangerous to have a car that is still going.


Then this just in from West Texas – WW~

Mysterious gas shortage in northern Mexico is causing a rush on the pumps in West Texas

managing-traffic_1

PRESIDIO, Texas — On Tuesday afternoon, dozens of cars, many with Mexican license plates, spilled out from the Exxon gas station onto the shoulder of the road as drivers waited in the sun to fill up on gas before returning home.

They’re not crossing the border to save a few bucks at the pump, but because frontier towns like Presidio are the only places where the Mexicans from Chihuahua can buy gas in recent days.

A mysterious gas shortage in the Mexican border state, home to some 4.8 million people, is pushing many Chihuahuenses to make the tedious cross-border journey into Texas to fill their tanks.

A line of vehicles snakes across Presidio waiting for their turn to fill up the tank at the gas stationSasha von Oldershausen

But Presidio, a town of 6,000 people and just three gas stations, wasn’t prepared to receive the long line of empty-tanked vehicles snaking up from Mexico.

The temporary gas crisis in Mexico, which has turned into a temporary boon for gas station owners in Presidio, shows how neighboring border communities lean on each other in hard times. ‘Cause that’s what neighbors are for.

Still, it’s one thing to borrow a cup of sugar, and another thing to ask for 8,000 gallons of gasoline.

Tom’s Service Station, an affiliate of Texaco, ran out of gas just two hours after it opened on Tuesday morning.

“We sold about 1,000 gallons of gas between 8:30 and 10:30,” said Norberto Ornelas, the owner of the service station.

Norberto Ornelas, owner of Tom's Service Station, can't believe how fast he's selling gas these days.Sasha von Oldershausen

Norberto Ornelas, owner of Tom’s Service Station, can’t believe how fast he’s selling gas these days.

He says on an average day he sells about 400 gallons, and usually orders new shipments of petroleum every 10 days. But due to the unexpected lineup of vehicles from Mexico, Ornelas had to place an emergency order for a next-day delivery.

The town’s Exxon station also ran out of gas, and by the time a new shipment arrived late Tuesday morning a long queue of thirsty cars was already lining the sidewalk, while the town’s constable directed traffic at the entrance. A couple hours after the tanker truck arrived to refuel the Exxon station with 8,000 gallons, the pumps had already drained more than one-third of it into the waiting cars.

Javier Parada, a Kentucky resident, said he had been vacationing in Chihuahua before he had to cut his trip short due to the gas shortages there. Parada yelled irritably at the man in the car before him, who stalled briefly after he’d finished pumping gas.

“I’ve been waiting for one-and-a-half hours,” Parada told me when he finally got his turn. “There’s no gas in all of Chihuahua.”

This small Texas town is experiencing a rush on the pumpsSasha von Oldershausen

“It’s a huge problem,” said Rigo Saenz, who drove over from Ojinaga, a Mexican city of 22,000 just across the border from Presidio. He says local media outlets in Chihuahua are reporting that the state would be without gas until Friday.

But it could be longer than that. Ernesto Laphond, president of the union that represents some of the biggest gas stations in Mexico, said his group expects gas supplies won’t return to normal until Sunday.

Laphond says the gas shortage is due to a number of factors, including technical problems at a Mexican gas refinery, followed by a “panic buying” —a sudden rush on the pumps that doubled the normal demand for gas.

Adding to the problem, he said, was the untimely closing of 20 local gas stations due to an ongoing internal legal dispute.

The gas lines started early at Valero gas stationSasha von Oldershausen

But there might be something else going on as well. Mexican news outlets claim state oil company Pemex has pinched Chihuahua’s gas supplies by half since early June. And some people suspect dirty politics is at play.

Several Mexicans who made the trip to Presidio to buy gas on Tuesday said they suspect the choke in their local gas line is due to political frictions caused by Mexico’s Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), which recently lost the governor’s seat there to its chief political rival, the National Action Party (PAN).

But whatever the case is in Mexico, the gas station owners in the struggling city of Presidio are enjoying the endless line up of people waiting to hand them money.

“This thing was surprising,” said Ornelas, rotating a tire at his service station. “It’s good for business.”

Is Trump walking into a hornet’s nest of warmongers itching for WWIII?  WW~

This is an older report from Jim Stone –

Now it is time to worry about scenario 2

I have been accused of avoiding scenario 2 in the message box because of the election steal in progress in Penn, and it is ANOTHER BIG ONE. Here it is:

In every sense of the word, Trump is a righteous cop walking into a drug snorting money laundering child gang rape scene complete with organ trafficking and many other absolutely enormous crimes. And almost ALL of the top billionaires and trillionaires are at that party. And every last one of them is armed. Their weapons are not the usual weapons. What are they?

1. The ability to wreak financial armageddon at will.
2. The ability to spark wars at will.
3. The ability to raise mayhem, such as cutting communications and power at will.
4. A completely scamming press.
5. Ownership of a huge portion of America’s intelligence apparatus.
6. The Samson option.
7. The ability to just cancel oil deliveries.
8. The ability to modify the weather and create natural disasters.
9. The ability to credibly threaten Trump’s life.
10. The ability to stage false flags and ram them down our throats.
There are many other things that I can’t even think to itemize.

So, if Trump just walked in on their party, and they have all these weapons, do you think they will shoot? I’d say that is probable, even with an election win that is solidified by the electoral college actually voting. We still need to pray for Trump and for the saving of this nation.

Figure this: Let’s just talk about ONE (1) of their crimes: Intentionally sabotaged vaccines. Trump knows about that, and is not going to play ball. What could happen? All of the pharmaceutical companies that intentionally manufactured that crap and destroyed millions of children ON PURPOSE are going to pay the piper, and it is going to trickle all the way up to Soros, Rothchild and probably Rockefeller who had this done to soften the population and make it easier to manage in a new world order. Do you think they want to be held accountable for that? Would they try to stop it? Would they be safe ANYWHERE ON EARTH after they destroyed children in every corner of the globe? Answer: OBVIOUSLY NO. So will they go down in flames, or will they use one or more of the 10 weapons mentioned above to avoid being called to account? They intentionally wiped out countless children, would they go a step further and maim the globe? YOU GUESS.

Russian ambassador to Turkey dies after gun attack in Ankara – Foreign Ministry

https://www.rt.com/news/370774-russian-ambassador-shot-ankara/

The perpetrator, who was wearing a suit and a tie, shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (‘God is great’ in Arabic) during the attack.

Following the shooting of Karlov, the assailant shouted: “Don’t forget Aleppo! Don’t forget Syria!”

“Only death can take me away from here. Whoever has a role in this cruelty, they will pay for it one by one. They will,” the man went on to say. Since last year, Russia has been providing Syrian government forces with air support in their fight against terror groups and rebels.

Turkish NTV broadcaster says that three other people were also injured in the attack on the ambassador.

The attacker himself has been killed by Turkish Special Forces in a shoot out that followed.

The gunman was a police officer, Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu confirmed.

Previously Interfax, citing a source in the Turkish military, reported that the perpetrator had presented a police ID as he entered the exhibition.

Meanwhile, a picture allegedly showing the perpetrator’s personal file, apparently proving he was indeed a police officer, was posted on social media.

The Russian ambassador to Turkey has died after being shot by a gunman in Ankara, where he was attending a photo exhibition, the Russian Foreign Ministry has confirmed.

LIVE UPDATES: Russian ambassador shot dead in Ankara 

“This is a tragic day in the history of Russian diplomacy. Today, Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov died after being shot at during a public event in Ankara,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Monday evening.

The assault on the Russian ambassador is an “act of terrorism,” she added.

“We are in touch with Turkish officials, who assured us that there will be a thorough and comprehensive investigation [into the case],” Zakharova said.

The ambassador, Andrey Karlov, was shot as he was delivering a speech on the opening of the exhibition “Russia in the eyes of Turks.”

The attack on the ambassador might be an attempt to jeopardize relations between Moscow and Ankara, Russian MP and member of the International Relations Committee, Elena Panina said.

I believe that this is a provocation to disrupt improved dialogue between Russia and Turkey. Moreover, we know that [Turkish President] Erdogan is due to visit the Russian Federation. Therefore, it is a pure provocation,” Panina told RIA Novosti news agency.

Speaking to RT, Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights Konstantin Dolgov said that the death of Karlov was a huge loss.

“He [Karlov] was a very talented diplomat, very experienced diplomat. It’s a very big loss for all of us.”

“All those, who planned this attack, those who participated in perpetrating this terrorist act, in carrying it out, will be brought to justice, there is no doubt about that,” Dolgov emphasized. The diplomat also noted that “there is no justification whatsoever for such a terrorist act and there is no justification for terrorism as a whole.”

I fear that soon the curtain will finally be brought down on the puppet show that passes for democracy in America, and those who for decades have been pulling the strings will come raging into the light, red in tooth and claw.

The illusion that the people really have a choice of president every four years will be irreparably shattered.

The old British truism that “it does not matter whom you vote for, the government always gets in” can also be applied to the US presidency – usually all candidates are approved and massively funded by the modern incarnation of Eisenhower’s infamous “military-industrial complex” and then assiduously supported by cheerleaders in the old corporate media, leaving the electorate with damn little meaningful choice.

This has been true from Reagan to Bush the First, from Clinton the First to Bush the Second and then on to Obama (the First?). It was supposed to have been true in the most recent election, where the elite’s choice pointed towards a contest between Bush the Third or Clinton the Second, either one of whom would have worked to the interests of Wall Street and continued the increasingly dangerous, interventionist, and hawkish global US foreign policy.

As a little aside, since when did the USA fall for the concept of inherited political power, a de facto new monarchy? But then an oxymoronic billionaire “man of the people” crow-barred his way into the contest and slashed all the strings of puppetry and privilege. Enter, stage left, the bullish, seemingly bigoted, and bemusingly successful Donald Trump.

As a Brit, currently cut adrift in a pre-Brexit Europe, I hold no brief for the dangers he may or may not pose to the much-vaunted American way of life in the good ol’ homeland. However, as I have stated before, with The Donald’s apparent determination to follow a strategy of US isolationism, to cut a deal in Syria, and effect a rapprochement with Russia, the wider world may just have dodged a nuclear bullet or at least an era of unending war.

Plus, the American people appear to have wanted a change, any change, from the hereditary privilege of the Washington elite. That change could well have come from another outsider, Bernie Sanders, if he had been given a fair chance. However, as we know from the leaked Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Podesta emails, the Democratic Party would stop at nothing to ensure the anointing of the chosen one – Clinton the Second.

So why do I think that there may be a coup d’etat looming in America’s very near future?

Trump was elected on the promise of “draining the swamp” of the Washington political and corporate elites – this is deeply threatening to the vested interests, not least the CIA, whose daily briefings have been spurned by Trump, thereby rupturing the co-dependent relationship between the president and the politically compromised intelligence agencies that has existed since 9/11 and which has caused so much global harm, starting with the ill-informed and illegal rush to war in Iraq in 2003. I shall return to the CIA later.

The American elite is facing the inauguration of a self-professed outsider who is threatening all their easily-bought privileges, one who seems more interested in cutting deals with countries than bombing them. Nor do they like his nominees to high office, especially that of Rex Tillerson, the current CEO of ExxonMobil, to the post of Secretary of State – after all, he has a track record of cutting deals too and with the Russians no less. Such a person as the top US diplomat might, gasp, help to bring to a close the new not-so-Cold War that is so important to the hawkish warmongers and their masters in the thriving US arms and security industry.

Therefore, once Trump had been declared the official Republican nominee, the establishment push-back was all too predictable. The story of “Russian hacking” was initially trailed merely as media bait to divert the press from the real story – Hillary Clinton’s potentially illegal use of a private web server while acting as Secretary of State.

Then in November WikiLeaks began to release even more damaging emails from the DNC and the Podesta files, which demonstrated quite how the Democrats had stitched up the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. The Democrats immediately cried foul – it must indeed be the Russians hacking their files and handing the information to WikiLeaks (now cast as a ‘Russian stooge’ – a move extremely useful in America’s ongoing attempts to frame the prosecution of WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange as “espionage”, even though he is an Australian publisher stuck in Europe).

Unusually, Assange went on the record to say the emails Wikileaks published did not come from the Russians: the whistle-blowing site traditionally refuses to discuss its sources.

Then former UK Ambassador and WikiLeaks ally, Craig Murray, went public by saying that, while he was in Washington earlier this year, he was given files that were then published on WikiLeaks. His view is that the information came from a Democrat whistleblower with legal access – it was a leak by an insider, not a hack by an outsider.

Also earlier this week a group of former senior US intelligence officials, including the former Technical Director of the NSA, wrote an open letter to Congress explaining that, if indeed the Russians had hacked the DNC, the NSA would have been able to provide evidence to to prove this. Yet, at such a time of potential constitutional crisis, none has been forthcoming, either directly or via the CIA, even in the face of calls for the usual congressional hearings and special investigations.

So there is apparently no substantive evidence of Russian hacking during the election. However, there does appear to be some evidence around the issue of Clinton’s illegal server.

Eleven days before the American election the Director of the FBI, in the wake of the Anthony Weiner sexting case, reopened the investigation into the Clinton server scandal and published the fact, as he said, in the national interest. This caused howls of rage from the Democrats, and again “Russian hacking” was hyped in the media, thereby easily conflating the concept of the illegal server, the alleged hacks, the Russians, into one big lump of geek-speak that most people would not have the will to disentangle. Two days before the election, James Comey backed down, but the hacking seed had germinated.

Now it is coming into bloom – last week the CIA re-entered the fray, with reports about Russian hacking leaked to both the Washington Post and the New York Times. Since then, nameless “intelligence sources” and grandstanding politicians have been falling over themselves to speak to this subject, but it all remains very evidence-lite.

Plus there is apparently by no means a consensus amongst all seventeen of the US intelligence agencies with regards to the CIA’s claims. Indeed, until recently the FBI has directly contradicted them, and the FBI is in the business of pulling together evidence to prosecute a case under law.

That, now, is all changing. Only recently it was reported that the FBI is now supporting the CIA’s “beliefs”. I was puzzled about this volte face until I read this prominent op-ed by Clinton campaign manager, John Podesta, in the Washington Post where, in addition to blaming the Russians for “hacking the election” (note, no longer just the DNC emails and his own), he is attacking the FBI and its head, James Comey, and suggesting that the organisation is broken and “what’s broken in the FBI must be fixed and quickly”. Perhaps, for whatever reason, Comey can see the overturning of the election result as a real possibility now and is desperately rowing back.

In parallel, it seems that the CIA is fearful of retaliation if, against all their endeavors, Donald Trump does indeed get sworn in as the 45th president of the USA on 20th January next year. That goes some way to explaining why they are challenging the election result by pushing this line that the Russians “hacked the election”, the new headline that has morphed through the global MSM over the last couple of days from belief to established fact, with no evidence produced.

The CIA claims that Russian “hackers” were delving around in the emails of both the Democratic National Congress as well as the Republican equivalent for months before the November election. And yet only the Democrat emails were, the CIA asserts, passed on to WikiLeaks and thereby published to order to sway the election result. Where is the proof? They have produced no evidence, in the face of of expert testimony from former senior intelligence officers as well as direct assertions from WikiLeaks about the source of the DNC leaks. Indeed, the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, is refusing to brief the Congressional intelligence committees, despite repeated requests from the members.

That has not stopped the global mainstream media from whipping up an imagined new truth: that the Russians “hacked the election”. And the media frenzy has grown exponentially over the last few days.

This is why I fear an American coup d’etat, possibly starting as soon as 19th December, the date when the Electoral College meets to ratify the election of Trump. All this Cold-War, anti-Russian hysteria is being used as a stick to beat the Electoral College members into ignoring their duty and vote in the way directed by the majority of the people of their state whom they are pledged to represent. Plus, who knows what juicy carrots may also have been offered?

If enough prove faithless to the electorate, then the election result will be overturned and Clinton the Second could ascend to the American throne. Even if the Electoral College does its sworn duty to the people, I fear that the CIA anti-Trump campaign may now have gathered so much momentum that the establishment may still find a way, any way possible, to stop Trump’s inauguration as president – after all we still have five weeks to get through before 20th January.

Trump is a known unknown and retains potential possibilities intriguing to the wider world. However, if the Electoral College starts a coup d’etat on Monday and against all constitutional norms the coronation of Clinton proceeds, we know all too well what lies ahead: war.

Very important interview of Christopher Jon Bjerknes by Renegade Broadcasting’s Kyle Hunt

Kyle Hunt of Renegade Broadcasting Conducted an Exclusive Interview Regarding My New Book E = mc2 AND THE JEWISH AGENDA

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

Kyle and I covered many of the themes of my book E = mc2 and the Jewish Agenda, including:

The Jews created the “Mutually Assured Destruction” system, or “MAD”. Jews Leo Szilard and Albert Einstein famously issued a letter to President Roosevelt urging him to begin what came to be called the “Manhattan Project” to develop an atomic bomb primarily to be used against Germany. Jews Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, and David Greenglass, then spied for the Soviet Union to provide them with the ability to manufacture atomic bombs. This jewish enterprise produced the Cold War, which is a fratricidal and potentially genocidal war among the White Race, in that 95%+ of the nuclear bombs in existence are held in the arsenals of historically White nations and are targeted principally at Whites.

I propose an alternative to the Jews’ system MAD, which I dub “MAP” or “Mutually Assured Preservation”; whereby Whites recognize their common racial interests and employ their nuclear arsenals as a means to guarantee their survival, rather than their assured destruction.

The Jews have repeatedly used communism as a means to pit a people against itself, as in the cases of East Germany versus West Germany, North Korea versus South Korea, North Vietnam versus South Vietnam, Red China versus Taiwan and Hong Kong, etc. The Jews’ system of MAD pits the White Race against itself at a time when Whites could maintain hegemony over the world.

My book contains thorough proof from primary jewish sources that the Jews plan to exterminate Gentiles in the Messianic Age they are bringing about deliberately and without divine intervention. Nuclear weapons, which are essentially based upon the formula E = mc^2, provide the Jews with a means to accomplish their messianic prophecies which call for an apocalyptic war that will exterminate Genitles and ruin the old earth and eliminate all Gentile gods, paving the way for their new earth and new heavens of prophecy, where the Jews alone rule the planet Earth below just as their jealous jewish god rules the heavens unopposed from the planet Saturn above, as above, so below, which is a cabalistic principle.

Jewish monotheism finds it racial match in the Jews’ quest to kill off the rest of humanity. Just as their jealous god seeks to kill off all other gods, the Jews seek to kill off all other human beings, as above, so below.

This existential threat to human life is imminent, in that the Jews believe the old earth and all non-Jews are only destined to last for only 6000 years from the birth of Adam, at the end of which will be the war of the apocalypse. That date passed in the year 2000 AD, or 6000 Anno Lucis, and the Jews are eager to instigate a nuclear war to fulfil their self proclaimed mission. The Jews believe that the creation story in Genesis of six days of creation followed by a seventh day of sabbath rest is in fact an allegory to six thousand years of humanity followed by a seventh millennium of an exclusively jewish world. Rest for the Jews means the extermination of the Goyim which restores order to a corrupted universe. The Jews believe that Eve fornicated with the Serpent and that Gentiles bear this polluted blood that can only be cleansed from existence through genocide.

Judaism is an apocalyptic religion which spawned the apocalyptic religions of Christianity and Islam. Crypto-Jews are using Christianity and Islam as a means to provoke Gentiles into exterminating themselves in order to fulfil their apocalyptic prophecies. For centuries, the Jews have pitted Western Europe against Islam and Russia with Christianity, and Islam and Russia against Western Europe with Christianity and the Muslim faith. Christian Dispensationalism mirrors the Judaic belief in the jewish year 6000 and the messianic age, and was crafted as a subversive strategy by the Jews so that Christians call for their own demise.

My book concludes with a chapter detailing Einstein’s plagiarism of the world’s most famous equation and explains the reasons why the Jews pretend that Einstein was their god’s messenger and have made an holy icon out of the formula E = mc^2. For them, it is the means to genocide the hated Goyim, which they view as their divine mission on earth.

Kyle and I also discussed allegations that the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were part of a hoax. I reject the theory that atomic bombs supposedly do not exist, or alternatively that they did not exist at the time. They did exist and were used against the Imperial Japanese.

Our discussion inspired me to consider the source and motivations for the apparent disinformation campaign taking place, which denies the existence of atomic and nuclear weapons. I suspect it originates in the KGB/FSB and/or Mossad. Russians (also the Red Chinese) and Jews stand to gain if they can dupe Americans into doubting the existence of nuclear weapons. In do so doing, they discourage Americans from supporting the maintenance and enlargement of our nuclear weapons arsenal. They further discourage us from opposing Israel’s nuclear weapons arsenal and seeking to reduce Russia’s nuclear weapons arsenal.

The Russian’s have a strong motive to promote the disinformation claiming that nuclear weapons do not exist. Further evidence that they are behind this campaign is found in the fact that some of the same people who promote this theory do not call Putin a liar, a fraud and a hoaxster for threatening nuclear war against us.

The Russians are also likely trying to generate demoralization among Americans, so that we cannot form rational opinions regarding nuclear weapons, or terrorism. Kyle and I also discussed the view that most of the terrorism taking place is stage managed and does not in fact injure people. I believe that view is part of a Russian disinformation campaign covering up for their control of ISIS and Chechen terrorists, and is also meant to scapegoat the American government for their actions.

None of this communist behavior is new. The Soviets and their Satellites engaged in many such disinformation campaigns meant to mislead Americans, and some of the same voices which promoted those bogus theories are a part of the disinformation campaign to reduce our native support for our nuclear forces and opposition to Russian and Jewish nuclear weapons, and their drive to instigate a nuclear war and scapegoat America for it. I am concerned that well meaning people are being deceived into accepting this dangerous bolshevik propaganda which aims to subvert our defenses and which poses an existential threat to humanity.
