Open Letter to President Trump on Ecuador Declaring Julian Assange’s Diplomatic Status

Dear Mr. President:

Sir, in recent days, Ecuador declared Julian Assange diplomatic status in Britain only to have the UK reject his status. This is unprecedented and in fact, against international law. By supporting his status as a diplomat Mr. President you would be gaining support from many outside supporters around the world as well as many Wikileaks supporters here in the United States.  This would benefit you in many ways.  You would not have to go through a lengthy pardoning process and would gain even more support from those of us who want to see Assange freed after his 5.5-year political asylum inside a room the size of a small office. This would also appear to the general public as you supporting international law.

Julian Assange has been detained by the United Kingdom for over 7 years on allegations by Sweden that were dropped last May after Sweden meeting with Assange.  The only thing keeping him there is the possible extradition to the US to face charges which are bogus in nature and were made up under the Obama administration.  Julian Assange and Wikileaks are simply media that published documents given to them just like Washington Post journalists Woodward and Epstein during the Watergate scandal.  Just as the New York Times has purportedly released leaks given to them, so Wikileaks has done the same.  The difference is that Wikileaks has never had to retract a story in its 11 years existence as being false.

Last year, Wikileaks and Julian Assange released emails from the DNC and John Podesta that exposed the corruption of Clinton and her colleagues during the primaries and beyond.  The emails showed media collusion with the Clinton campaign and many of the Clinton Foundation crimes against humanity. This in fact, helped get you elected sir and Wikileaks deserves our appreciation and thanks for saving us from the destruction of a Clinton Presidency and enabled you to MAGA.

Please sir, a pardon would be in order but by supporting his diplomatic status it would allow Julian Assange safe passage to his political asylum in Ecuador where he is now a citizen.  After his detainment, it has affected Julian’s health and well being as seen in this article Possible ramifications of Julian’s detainment

As a United States journalist and citizen, I implore you to support his diplomatic status as a world leader and a compassionate, outstanding human being.

Thank you

A Concerned Citizen

 

Whistleblowers, Hacktivists and Leakers: Is there a difference?

When you hear these words, what does it make you think of? Many people believe that all 3 are criminals or that a hacktivist is a felon.  But wait.  If any of the 3 do what they do for to expose a wrongdoing in a government and show the people the documents that prove the act happened, should that be a crime?

The 3 names that come to mind are Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and Lauri Love. Chelsea was in the military when he leaked his documents to Wikileaks. He was convicted of being a traitor but later set free for releasing classified documents which disclosed war crimes by the US.  Edward Snowden is a whistleblower who showed us all how the government is spying on us and violating our 4th amendment rights to privacy.  Lauri Love is a hacktivist who will be going on trial for also gaining data by hacking into a US database.  All 3 are considered criminals in the US.

Is disclosing a scandal really a crime?  What about Julian Assange and Wikileaks who simply published information given to them that also exposed corruption at the highest level of government?  Julian Assange would face 45 years in prison if extradited to the United States.

Ask yourself this.  If whistleblowers, hacktivists, and leakers did not exist, would governments be held accountable for the misconduct they hide behind closed doors?  Are laws too strict on these individuals?

Yes, in the United States the laws are incredibly strict.  No other democracy in the world has stricter laws.  Punishment for individuals who commit an act of exposure often faces the rest of their life in prison and outrageous fees.  In fact, most face more time than a rapist, murderer or pedophile.  Why should they get more time than acts of violence?

Simply put, the treatment of the above is unfair and oftentimes way overboard.  It is time that government officials stop persecuting these people and reward them for doing the right thing.  After all, when we turn our heads to wrong, we are just as guilty.

 

An Open Letter to the Parliament of the UK Regarding Julian Assange

Dear Sirs/Madams:

In recent days, it was announced via media that Parliament will be voting on the possible release of Julian Assange. I feel this would be a great relief to your government financially as well as gaining respect from your constituents.  It has been over 7 years since this started and it is time for this nonsense to come to an end.  Looking at the case as it stands, detaining him further makes a mockery of your honorable government and places you in a corner.

Continuing to guard the Ecuadorian Embassy with police officers who are funded by the government is simply a bad decision and a waste of tax money.  The citizens of the UK deserve that money to be towards their safety and Julian Assange simply is no threat whatsoever to anyone.

Besides, the UN has ruled his detainment to be inhumane as he receives no sunlight, fresh air or proper exercise.  This simply should be viewed as an embarrassment. It would certainly be in the best interest of the government and the people to allow him safe passage to his place of political asylum. Simply put, the constant surveillance is an eyesore and a thorn in your side.

It would be a terrible travesty if, for any reason, Julian Assange should fall ill in the Embassy and would tarnish the UK’s reputation.  Please take these things into consideration and release this refugee.

Thank you.

 

Do You Have One of The Most Toxic Substances in Your Salt Water Tank? Probably

My fiance and I knew that the coral known as zoanthid or more commonly known as Zoas, are poisonous but we didn’t realize just how bad it could be. On Monday, January 22nd, 2018, we found out accidentally.  It’s common for owners of saltwater tanks or ‘reefers” to boil live rock when it gets algae on it. Algae is bad for the tank and thus must be gotten rid of.  My fiance removed a rock covered in hair algae and put it on the stove in a pot to boil off the unwanted substance.  What he did not notice was the 4 small heads of zoanthids growing amongst the algae.  3 hours we were both in the ER wondering if we were going to die from inhaling palytoxins.download (4).jpg

Good grief, you are thinking. How could this happen?  Case studies show this is a common occurrence as well as the accidental ingestion or injection of this poison.  Luckily, we knew what had happened but there is no known antidote.  The only thing the doctors can do is treat the symptoms and hope for the best.  Symptoms of palytoxin poisoning include the following:  palytoxin symptoms. 

a bitter/metallic taste, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, mild to acute lethargy, paresthesia, bradycardia, renal failure, impairment of sensation, muscle spasms, tremor myalgia, cyanosis, and respiratory distress. In the fatal cases of palytoxin poisoning, the poisoning mostly results in death due to myocardial injury

My fiance was not exposed like I was as I was sitting on the other side of the sink in the living room and he went to the back bedroom to use his computer. We were lucky, many are not.  download (5).jpg

The biggest question I want to raise in regards to this horrible accident is why doesn’t the federal government regulate the sale of this poison?  Why are there no warnings when you purchase zoanthids?  Anything else that is a known toxin must be marked with a warning before purchase.  Because it is unusual for someone to expose themselves to palytoxin, there are few case studies as my doctor admitted. We went to Mayo Clinic which is one of the best hospitals in the world and you could still see the fear in the doctors’ eyes as they attempted to treat us.

I have severe lung damage from exposure which should improve with time and am lucky to be alive today.  My ICU doctor informed me that my lungs looked like I had been in a high impact car crash and told me over and over again that he thought the prognosis was good (all, while the doubt in his mind, showed on his face).   After treatments of steroids, oxygen, diuretics, 4 breathing treatments a day, threats of a breathing tube, oxycodone, Tylenol, and Benadryl I was released after 5 days in the ICU. I am currently healing at home.

Please, before you buy any type of coral or fish for your tank, educate yourself on what you are buying and how to handle it safely.

The Targeting of Friends and Supporters of Assange

wikileaks_large_by_bmmd-d37mr7a.pngFor the record, anyone who potentially supports Wikileaks or Julian Assange, media or otherwise has become a possible target by the US government and the Deep State.  Whether you are a journalist like Caitlin Johnstone, a Republican member of the House like Dana Rohrabacher who visited Julian or a radio host like Randy Credico, you find yourself in the predicament of being a person of interest. Another person who became a bull’s eye in the Deep State’s sight is Trevor Fitzgibbon, but why?d60fc-1bxb7lnw-bs1f5tfijxq2tq

The United States Department of Justice continues to neither deny or admit to wanting to extradite Julian Assange on charges of espionage and theft of government property.  In fact, several times they have denied the allegation of seeking charges against him.  (However, this is not true.)  So why go after supporters and friends of Wikileaks?  Why has the Senate Intel Committee included Section 623 of the Intel Act of 2018 to declare Wikileaks and its founder a hostile intelligence agency when all they really are is a publisher? Are they afraid that Wikileaks will expose more of their corruption and criminal activity? We must assume so.

Obviously, they see supporters and friends alike as a serious threat to the establishment. Words like racist and Russian spy have been applied to supporters and friends alike.  Caitlin Johnstone was targeted shortly after Wikileaks and Mr. Assange tweeted several of her articles.  Randy Credico was subpoenaed to appear in front of the Senate Intel Committee after interviewing Julian.  (He claimed the 5th amendment shortly thereafter).

Trevor Fitzgibbon’s life and PR business were destroyed after being accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault which were later dropped by the court systems.  Trevor continues to struggle currently.  He had represented Assange, Wikileaks, and Manning as a PR consultant and was then targeted.450DCkvVAiVoAA3AWp

Don’t forget Jacob Applebaum who was also accused of sexual misconduct who worked with Wikileaks and developed Tor.  However, Mr. Applebaum was never charged with any crime.  They succeeded however in assassinating his character.

Then there is the attacks on supporters on Twitter. I, myself, have been a victim of this.  Whether they are just trolls looking to be offensive or actual government supported bots, many Wikileaks supporters have found themselves being assailed for their backing of the organization.  Sometimes, receiving threats, as well as character assassination and even doxxing.  How many of us have questioned these onslaughts to be directly from the US government to attempt to scare us away from our vigils and support?

The even bigger question raised is how long before our government’s agency come after us as criminals for abetting the enemy?  Section 623 definitely opens the door to this possibility.  We are not outlaws in society.  We simply see the drastic inhumanity in what they are doing to Assange through his detainment and want real justice for a man who did nothing but tell the truth.

In other words, as US citizens and friends of Assange, we are all viewed as possible advocates for an organization they view as a terrorist agency simply because they publish documents exposing corruption in governments.  This is simply an atrocity and a violation of our Rights as citizens of the United States and is a terrible example to the rest of the world.

 

Is it Fake or Is it Real? The News Today

download (3).jpgCan you even trust the media today?  This is a very good question.  So much of what we see and hear is made up propaganda to pass on a bias opinion.  Many times, an article comes out only to be retracted as false. So how can we tell the difference?  I am going to share a process I use.  However, it is not 100% full proof by far but I think helps.download (2).jpg

  1. Has the story been repeated by several credible news sources?  Has the story been retracted or proven false by another media outlet?
  2. Does it sound too far out to be true?  Oftentimes, journalists like to throw the extreme out there to get attention to their story and make it go further. Beware of insane headlines
  3. Watch multiple media outlets.  Don’t just watch a liberal channel or a Republican channel.  Make time to watch both to see what each says about the headlines.  Then make your own educated decision which is right.
  4. Wikileaks is a reliable source of information in that they have never had to retract a story in 11 years and have won all court cases accusing them of false information.  They do not have all the answers to your questions but if they say something, believe it.
  5. Not all conspiracy theories are true as we all know.  Look it up in a reliable search engine.  Educate yourself so that you can’t be led astray by fake news.
  • Don’t let the media or anyone else give you the information you need.  Take the time to look up resources and see what everyone else is saying. School yourself in everything you can.  The key is to

Freedom of Press Foundation, PayPal and the Pierre Omidyar Connection

In recent days, the Freedom of Press Foundation dropped its support of Wikileaks and it’s founder Julian Assange’s legal fund citing ““FPF’s board unanimously found — upon review of the available evidence — that the financial blockade by the major payment processors is no longer in effect, and as such, we will soon cease processing donations on behalf of WikiLeaks readers, as stated by Trevor Timm.”  (Washington Times article ) This being said, the truth is far from this statement as the U.S. DoJ continues to seek prosecution of Wikileaks staff and Assange as well as the government advocating the end of Wikileaks donations through the introduction of new bills like Section 623 of the Intel Act of 2018.

The question is why would an organization originally founded by Julian Assange for the sole purpose of receiving donations decide to end such support?  The answer lies in a man named Pierre Odiymar who is known for founding the site Ebay and for his board position at PayPal, and also created the Intercept news organization.  He is a Clinton Foundation donor ( link to article 55 million donation by Pierre Omidyar ) and donated well over 100k to the Anti-Trump super pac.( link here: Omidyar gives 100 k to Anti_Trump Super Pac ).

Pierre’s blatant hatred of free speech (unless it supports his political views), is seen here in his Twitter feed.

pierre twet

When he refers to Nazis, he is asking for the free speech of “Conservatives” and those who disagree with him to be silenced.  So how can a man who so blatantly disagrees with Free Speech have any influence on an organization that claims to advocate it and support journalists who are being persecuted? Follow the money.

According to this article Keeping Secrets , Omidyar paid Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald 250k to join the Intercept, both of whom are on the board of directors at FPF.  If you look at this graph, Micah F Lee another board member is paid a large sum of money through First Look Media, also of Pierre Omidyar fame.  DS4H260XUAANv7-.jpgDS4H260XUAANv7-.jpgDS4OVimXkAArl7g.jpg

Laura Poitras of “Risk” and “Citizen 4” fame also received funds for the documentary “Risk” about Julian Assange. She went back to edit it and smeared the editor of Wikileaks.  DS4H260XUAANv7-.jpg

Up until a few months ago, the Intercept’s funding was public which showed financial resources coming from Pierre Omidyar’s NASDAQ securities. Removing this, is simply a publicity stunt in order that Omidyar can distance himself from the Intercept and appear to have no influence on its journalists.

Omidyar, who publicly smears President Trump has in essence declared war on Wikileaks before through the bank blockade of 2010 as PayPal was involved in that scandal as well.  The only reason for dropping support of Wikileaks is purely political in nature and may very well be instrumented by the Clintons themselves. It is obvious that Omidyar is using a strategy presented in the “Wikileaks Threat” to take down his opponents.  ( Wikileaks Threat pdf ).  Here is the strategic planning by these three “intel” organizations ( Palantir Technology, HBGary & Berico Holdings) in 2010 used by Bank of America and other banking structures.

Wikileaks relies completely on contributions from donations through our support. If you can convince supporters by making their donations appear illegal, you can destroy an organization. Also, by pushing a false narrative through the media that Wikileaks received their leaks in 2016 from Russia, you can remove far left supporters of the agency.  Creating stories and spreading this disinformation has become a regular occurrence with media organizations in the United States recently and has infected free press and free speech.

Recently, Micah F Lee has slandered the editor of Wikileaks on Twitter and is currently trying to smear his reputation.  This also is included in the “Wikileaks Threat.”DRiIN_RV4AA8_xN (2).jpg

There is no truth in this claim as allegations were dropped by Sweden in May of 2017.  This is clearly slander and libel and promotes defamation of character by a board member and is very unprofessional on his part. He also has made it evident on Twitter that he does not support free speech unless it is his own as seen here. 1_HJYAvErrBp78jw6y54G6Iw.jpeg

This is also evidence of the possible strategy being used by federal agencies to crush the Wikileaks media framework and further dismantle support and morale. Why would a good upstanding foundation allow a board member to behave so unprofessionally without consequence? Is this a case of “Follow the money” where big corporations use their power and funds to control good causes.

The biggest critics in 2010 of the Wikileaks bank blockade are now funded by none other than Pierre himself as seen in the chart below. This is an obvious attempt to silence the critics that are against his Wikileaks agenda.DS4TBTnXUAEeozp

Is it not obvious that Omidyar’s involvement in the dropping of Wikileaks support by the Freedom of the Press Foundation is a business ethical code violation and conflict of interest on his part. Is there a connection to all of this and the DNC and Podesta emails released prior to the election? Has FPF sold out to the DNC and Paypal? Is there evidence of play to pay?

They say “Money Talks and People Walk” and the strategy to take down Wikileaks as definitely put stress on the media organization financially.  It is now evident who is behind this new “blockade”. the FPF’s disenchantment is obviously based on funding from Omidyar.  How better to get the board to back down from their own ethics than to offer a substantial sum of money in the form of wages?

Needless to say, this dropping of funds by FPF should make patrons stronger in their support of this persecuted institute that has never been wrong in 11 years.

Freedom of the Press Foundation, Wikileaks Threat PDF and the Strategy To Bring Wikileaks To Its Knees

In recent weeks, Freedom of the Press has chosen to end its five-year stint as a surrogate for Wikileaks donations.  According to the Washington Times, (article seen here Washington Times articles ) FPF dropped them because ““FPF’s board unanimously found — upon review of the available evidence — that the financial blockade by the major payment processors is no longer in effect, and as such, we will soon cease processing donations on behalf of WikiLeaks readers,”  Trevor Timm, the foundation’s director, wrote in a Dec. 9 email to WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.  

But is this the real reason for the sudden unanimous decision by the board to end support? Is it possible that the Freedom of Press Foundation dropped support for Wikileaks due to a strategy outlined in the “Wikileaks Threat” PDF? (Seen here Wikileaks Threat link )  Did an agency of the US use this strategy to turn the board of directors at FPF against it’s Founder?  I have included a copy of part of the strategy used by First of America in 2010  and the following intel agencies ( Palantir Technology, HBGary & Berico Holdings) in hopes of destroying Wikileaks.  As you know, this strategy didn’t work.

DSE443-V4AAEfk5.jpg

ClVDlWpXEAA4y2r.jpg

Is it possible that the board voted unanimously because they were pushed and chose professional preservation over their own belief system?   In February of 2017, Wikileaks and Julian Assange began running #Vault7 revealing CIA documents exposing 4th amendment violations of US citizens privacy.  These documents also showed the incompetence of this agency and was an embarrassment to the organization.  Was there response to use this strategy to destroy Wikileaks and put doubts in the minds of moderate supporters?

Did the CIA fuel the fire by pushing the “Russia” narrative on to the left-leaning board members in order to further sabotage their relationship with Assange? Was this all a plan to plant hatred in the minds of both sides? After all, Julian Assange founded the Freedom of the Press Foundation when the bank blockade of Wikileaks took place.  How better to bring down the morale of the staff and the editor himself than to pressure the foundation into dropping their support?

Is the “Russian” witch hunt more than just a plan to impeach Trump but to also put an end to the existence of Wikileaks and its director Julian Assange? Many of the directors were unhappy with the results of the election and the media placing the blame on Wikileaks would further feed the fire.

How better to slander the name of the editor and publisher of #Vault7 then to have his own colleagues defame his name on social media? The CIA would not hesitate to use such a strategy against what they think of as a foe, so why not?

Media already has pushed a disinformation campaign against Wikileaks in the past and continues to spread false facts.  It wouldn’t be hard to push this in the right direction and disenchant those who are on the left to turn on WL.  It is already happening with the average liberal citizen so why not the FPF who are mostly Democrats? The CIA or other agencies could easily identify certain board members as potential turncoats, looking for behavior that would show doubt in Assange. Believing that Wikileaks would fold without the support of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, any smart intel organization would target such individuals with propaganda and pressure.

Will we ever know if this is the case?  Maybe not but then again, a lot of things come to light when we don’t expect them to.

Rumors About Julian Assange and Facts About the DoJ Possible Charges

In recent days, since Christmas when Julian Assange deleted his Twitter account, there have been rumors flying that include his possible “safe passage” to the US and that he is free.  However, they are just that, rumors.

I will explain why and also show you the possible charges the Department of Justice in the United States is looking at charging Wikileaks and Assange with.

First, let’s look at the current hearsay that Julian has received safe passage to the US via a Navy vessel to the United States and is currently in a “safe house” to testify.  The United States DoJ and CIA are wanting to arrest Wikileaks staff and Julian with charges,   including conspiracy, stealing of government property and/or violating the Espionage Act, because of the cables on war crimes in 2010. (See Washington Post article Justice Department Debate ).  President Trump in April responded to the question whether or not the DoJ should pursue reopening the case with “Go ahead”.There was never an offer from Assange to trade information for a pardon on the table as many fake news sites reported.  The United States government still wants to arrest Assange and put him behind bars for being a publisher.

Therefore, the idea that he is in the United States under protective custody is not only false but a blatant lie.

For whatever reason Assange deleted his Twitter account on Christmas Day, it has nothing to do with rumors that he is exchanging information with the United States.  The United States continues to seek extradition of Wikileaks staff and Julian Assange.Also, people who are close to Julian would sound the alarm had  Mr. Assange disappeared.  First of all, his mother would contact every news source she could I am sure. He has close friends and staff members who contact him frequently and they would’ve been up in arms.

So, let’s put this to rest now and sleep easy. Julian is safe in the Embassy as he has been. No worries.
