IN THE WIKILEAKS: U.S. Political Elite In A Satanic Abuse Cult?

This is so bad. And this is not fake news: everything I claim here can be validated by going to, select the appropriate archive, search for "pizza" or "hotdog" or "hotdog stand" or "hot dog party" and so forth. Sick people. We need accountability, big league investigations. Not dumb jokes from Stephen Colbert, because this is not funny; it's a disgrace to our nation, and a genuine national security concern.

Correction- The leaked intelligence firm's email is from their VP of Intelligence, not their "head" of Intelligence. Still as relevant here.

And thank you all for the support, but this is not about me. It's about the possible victims and stopping future "rituals" from taking place. I didn't discover this stuff, I'm simply lending my platform to grow awareness, as every journalist should do in this case until we have real answers from authorities.

The Pakistani defense minister threatened Israel with nuclear war on Twitter

The Pakistani defense minister threatened Israel with nuclear war on Twitter, apparently responding to information from a site known for peddling out-of-this-world conspiracy theories.
Pakistani Minister of Defense Khawaja Muhammad Asif tweeted a thinly-veiled threat towards Israel on Friday, “reminding” it that Pakistan is a nuclear power that will strike back if attacked.
Asif appeared to be reacting to an article from the website AWD, which claimed that Moshe Ya’alon, the Israeli defense minister, threatened to use nuclear weapons on Pakistan if the country sent troops into Syria.
“As far as we are concerned, that is a threat, if, by misfortune, they arrive in Syria, we will know what to do, we will destroy them with a nuclear attack,” Ya’alon said in a presumed AWD exclusive. There are but two problems with the news story. First, Ya’alon left the post of Israeli defense minister back in May.
And second, he never said it, according to the defense ministry’s prompt reaction.
AWD itself could not seem to get its story straight, referring to Ya’alon as both “Israeli defense minister” and “the former Israeli Defence Minister” in the article.
Asif, however, apparently chose to be (arguably) safe rather than sorry, and issued his warning to Israel regardless.
The Israeli Ministry of Defense was quick to react to Asif’s statement, pointing out it was based on false information.
Neither country has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and both Israel and Pakistan are considered to be nuclear powers. Israel is widely thought to have had the atom bomb since the 1960s, though it has never publicly admitted it.
Pakistan, meanwhile, developed its own nuclear arsenal in response to India’s, and indeed, Khawaja Muhammad Asif had already threatened to nuke India back in September.
Diplomatic relations between the two countries are non-existent: as a Muslim country strongly opposed to the Jewish state, Pakistan does not even recognize Israel, though dialogue does take place through third parties. Although there used to be a small Jewish community in Pakistan, mainly concentrated around Karachi, it gradually disappeared as anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiments became more widespread.
AWD News has been described as “extremely dubious” by fact-checking site Snopes, which analyzed one of its articles claiming King Abdullah of Jordan murdered his wife, Queen Rania (who is alive and well).
A quick glance around the site also reveals that Vladimir Putin is dead and Russia is planning an attack on Saudi Arabia, among other things.

The Conservative Tribune reports, Well, here are a few well-checked facts for you… Snopes — neutral, reliable, trustworthy Snopes — is a quagmire of embezzling, pot-smoking licentious greed. There, I’ve said it, but I don’t feel one bit better. Founder (with wife Barbara) David Mikkelson is embroiled in a legal battle following their highly contentious divorce last year. Barbara claims that David embezzled $98,000 in company funds, took private trips and paid for prostitutes as a business expense, and that he put his mistress, Elyssa Young, now his wife, on the payroll, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.

“Ministry of Truth” Plus $611 Billion for the Military in 2017: Obama Quietly Signs the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” into Law

Late on Friday, with the US population embracing the upcoming holidays and oblivious of most news emerging from the administration, Obama quietly signed into law the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military in 2017.

In a statement, Obama said that:
Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy national security programs, provides vital benefits for military personnel and their families, and includes authorities to facilitate ongoing operations around the globe. It continues many critical authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and to reassure our European allies, as well as many new authorizations that, among other things, provide the Departments of Defense and Energy more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles.”
Much of the balance of Obama’s statement blamed the GOP for Guantanamo’s continued operation and warned that “unless the Congress changes course, it will be judged harshly by history,” Obama said. Obama also said Congress failed to use the bill to reduce wasteful overhead (like perhaps massive F-35 cost overruns?) or modernize military health care, which he said would exacerbate budget pressures facing the military in the years ahead.

But while the passage of the NDAA – and the funding of the US military – was hardly a surprise, the biggest news is what was buried deep inside the provisions of the Defense Authortization Act.

Recall that as we reported in early June, “a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth had been quietly introduced in Congress. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information. Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a “whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”

Also called the Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016 (S. 2692), when introduced in March by Sen. Rob Portman, the legislation represents a dramatic return to Cold War-era government propaganda battles. “These countries spend vast sums of money on advanced broadcast and digital media capabilities, targeted campaigns, funding of foreign political movements, and other efforts to influence key audiences and populations,” Portman explained, adding that while the U.S. spends a relatively small amount on its Voice of America, the Kremlin provides enormous funding for its news organization, RT.

“Surprisingly,” Portman continued, “there is currently no single U.S. governmental agency or department charged with the national level development, integration and synchronization of whole-of-government strategies to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.”

Long before the “fake news” meme became a daily topic of extensive conversation on such discredited mainstream portals as CNN and WaPo, H.R. 5181 would task the Secretary of State with coordinating the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to “establish a Center for Information Analysis and Response,” which will pinpoint sources of disinformation, analyze data, and — in true dystopic manner — ‘develop and disseminate’ “fact-based narratives” to counter effrontery propaganda.

In short, long before “fake news” became a major media topic, the US government was already planning its legally-backed crackdown on anything it would eventually label “fake news.”

Proof #BoycottDelta Was A Fake Media Hoax

Repeaters Not Reporters: The Presstitute Hillary and Obama Apologist Sockpuppet Ted Baxter Media

US Propaganda is legal, authorized and in full bloom. The US Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (Public Law 80-402), popularly referred to as the Smith–Mundt Act, was enacted after WWII and specifies with a degree of particularity the terms in which the United States government can engage global audiences, a procedure also known as the dissemination of propaganda. What was prohibited specifically under the statute was domestic propaganda circulation and propagation as we transitioned from WWII into a more refined and civilized Cold War worldview. Ahem. This was as to officially sanctioned propaganda (or truth) and not the more covert efforts such as was seen in such smash hits as Operation Mockingbird and other CIA efforts to massage and form journalistic truth and reportage. 

But that changed. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (section 1078 (a)) amended the US Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987, allowing specifically for materials produced by the State Department and the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) to be released within U.S. borders for the Archivist of the United States. What does all this mean? Propaganda. US propaganda. Most Americans miss the potential harm that this inspires as that would involve awareness, vigilance and rudimentary fact-finding and research. 

Then came this Orwellian information lockdown that our somnolent public missed yet again. On November 30, one week after the Washington Post launched its witch hunt against "Russian propaganda fake news," with but a mere 390 votes for, the House quietly passed "H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 – a bill which deals with a number of intelligence-related issues, including inter alia Russian propaganda, or what the government calls propaganda, and hints at a potential crackdown on "offenders" and he now dread fake news. Keep in mind that this dovetailed with the usual idiots rolling out stories how Russian propaganda efforts helped spread said fake news during the elections and, it appears, somehow writer instrumental in securing a victory for Kremlin agent and Putin crony Donald Trump. Remember this WaPo whopper that later contained a retraction within a reiteration of the specious piece as it dialed back its referencing of the now discredited PropOrNot. These folks make Snopes seem authoritative by comparison. And one final word, it seems that some detractors of this thing called freedom of speech when it traverses certain barriers and limits is and should be susceptible to Espionage Act prosecution. As they say, you can’t make this up.

SR 1415 – Edward Snowden Says Don’t Rely on a Fake News “Referee”

Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on Edward Snowden Says Don’t Rely on a Fake News “Referee”

Staying on top of this fake news issue is absolutely essential to defeating the invasion. 
How can we counter it successfully?
Just the way we have done it in the last year – with the swarm - all us little people risking a little of our assets and time - moving in approximately the same direction.
But we don’t need to empower some international referee to tell us what’s fake and what’s real. The very reason this channel exists is a natural reaction to the fake news of the MSM in the first place. 
No, our part in this victory was a natural, organic, self-organizing, unstoppable force of the collective will of we, the little people to find truth.
But this was only the first battle of a very long war. In fact, all we won so far was the ability to continue to fight back. Had we lost this opening major battle, our fate would have been sealed. Now, civilization has a chance.
Hat tip to my old friend Nathan Martin for the term “swarm”. 
No one told us what to do – we all just did what we could – and it worked. How could any army stop a swarm of a million bees?
In other words, our only reliable strategy is maximum decentralization – not a reliance in a centralized and obviously biased major new-media corporation to be the referee of truth. 
Although I didn’t know it until Breitbart did a story on it yesterday, NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden made the same point in a Periscope livestream to the Real Future Fair on Nov. 15th.
“The answer to bad speech is not censorship. The answer to bad speech is more speech.” 
“The problem of fake news isn’t solved by hoping for a referee but rather because we as participants, we as citizens, we as users of these services help each other.”
“To have one company that has enough power to reshape the way we think, I don’t think I need to describe how dangerous that is.”
We’ve all helped to empowered soon-to-be President Trump. Now his job is to identify and take out the most vulnerable single points of failure of the invaders as he boosts the overall health of the U.S. and of freedom-loving people abroad. 
The #1 vulnerability to me, is their money supply. For example, there are 15 to 20 boats pouring refugees across the Mediterranean into Italy right now (see SR 1380). 
This invasion by sea takes lots of money and can easily be interdicted by a powerful navy. Individual nations have pretty much stopped the invasion over land now.
#2 is their centralized communication sources. Terror magazines can be interdicted as well. World terror cannot be normalized.
Our job is to continue to pound out the truth. For example, the forces of globalism say there isn’t an invasion – “move on, nothing to see here” is their message. 
Importantly, Germany this week, for the first time said they ARE now at war - implying a recognition that there IS an invasion.
MSM news is really a heavily-centralized form of organized propaganda – and since it’s centralized, it’s vulnerable. 
Every day, well-thought-out media talking points are disseminated for the MSM to recite. Those who comply will always be well-funded. 
We will never be well-funded, but thanks to you, we are at least surviving at this point. 
However, YouTube is hitting us every day now with copyright strikes for the slightest infraction, even for reports produced years ago. Content creators have no effective way to protest. There is no referee standing for our team in this daily battle.
For example, virtually any news we put out concerning the European invasion situation is demonetized now. 
That won’t stop us from putting it out; it just prevents us from getting paid for our work.
What the free world needs is some serious competition for YouTube. 
But hey, it’s Christmas and we all helped win a great victory and now we should celebrate HOW that was done.

SR 1414 – Merkel Wants Facebook to Enforce Leftist Propaganda Machine

Good evening, I’m still reporting on
Merkel Wants Facebook to Enforce Leftist Propaganda Machine
Germany is said to be considering fines of up to $500,000 Euros against Facebook should they not remove so-called “fake news” from their site within 24 hours.
The political party of Angela Merkel is behind the new initiative because – they claim – that they are worried about Russian interference in their upcoming 2017 federal elections in which Angela Merkel has announced that she will run for Chancellor once again. 
However, she and her leftist Christian Democrat Union face a huge headwind of rising populism dedicated to ending the migrant invasion – especially in light of the recent truck massacre in Berlin.
So what’s going on here is Merkel is getting Facebook head, Mark Zuckerberg to run interference for her with Facebook moving into the role of international propaganda minister. 
Should Facebook not implement “fake-news” detection services sufficient to detect and remove all fake news from its pages within 24 hours, then they will get a fine of up to $500,000 Euros.
Who determines this? Merkel, of course. 
This is THE most dangerous attack on freedom of the press at the international level in my lifetime. 
Facebook takes the political heat off of Merkel. Otherwise, Merkel would have to be seen as suppressing all news in Germany with which she disagrees. 
And trust me, by the time her election comes up in the fall of 2017, the German people are going to be boiling with anti-Merkel rhetoric. But if Merkel was seen as suppressing it, that would be way too reminiscent of the Hitler propaganda machine. So, the simple answer is to make Zuckerberg and Facebook do it.
This is just the latest in a disturbing wave of anti-fake news suggestions specifically tailored to suppress only pro-populist news sites – such as this one. It was the fake news of the MSM that gave us the opportunity to proliferate as a naturel reaction to the MSM.
I have been on the front lines of seeing this fake news situation develop. It came in two forms. The major form was the fake news coming over the television channels. Gone are the days of careful reportage – moderate and even-handed.
But the worst of it was the stories deliberately designed to fake out smaller operations – like this one – with stories that sounded correct, but contained poison pills that if swallowed could easily be exploited to make the populist/nationalist news sites look stupid or amateurish. 
These stories were not the work of amateurs, but propaganda professionals. There would be no incentive to go to that much work to make up a story which would have only a brief incendiary life in the spotlight before proven fake.
It is dangerous to have the government decide what news is fit to print. If anything needs to be hands off to government it is control of the news thru government censorship. That’s the most essential pillar upon which dictatorships are built. That’s why freedom of the press comes in the 1st Amendment to our Constitution.
Merkel’s real motive here is to “force” Facebook to do her dirty work for them – a sort of censorship by proxy. This is just a trial balloon to see if anyone calls it out for what it is.
The right solution for freedom-loving governance is to let we, the people, work this out organically. We don’t need a government ministry of propaganda to help us out.

Despite active terrorist investigation, NYT avoids possibility Berlin attack linked to terror

The New York Times posted a headline entitled “9 Dead in Berlin After Truck Drives Into Christmas Market,” which suggests a truck became self-aware and decided to kill.
The headline certainly avoids the possibility that a ISIS-inspired terrorist drove the truck into a Christmas Market in Berlin, killing nine late Monday night, even though German officials said they were investigating the attack as a potential act of terrorism.
Now, to the NYT’s credit, its reporter mentioned “truck driver” in the lead sentence and did make reference to the similar Nice, France, terrorist attack earlier this year – but only did so near the bottom of the article.
She also downplayed the role Islamic terror played in that attack.
“The episode immediately evoked memories of the attack last July in Nice, France, when a truck driver ran over and killed more than 80 people during Bastille Day celebrations,” the Times reporter stated. “Though that carnage came in the midst of a series of terrorist attacks linked to jihadists in France, it was never clear if the Islamic State or other Islamist groups were connected to the driver, who had a long history of disturbed and violent behavior.”
Really? Then why did France later arrest 11 people suspected of helping the Nice driver, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, with his attack? The 11 arrested were also linked to arms smuggling.
Additionally, ISIS encouraged lone wolf attacks in the West.
“Rig the roads with explosives for them,” stated ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al Adnani in 2014. “Attack their bases. Raid their homes. Cut off their heads. Do not let them feel secure.”
That alone is reason enough to not shy away from a potential terror link in the Berlin attack, but if you were to read just the New York Times and CNN headlines, you’d think the attacks were launched by autonomous vehicles.
One headline on the front page of CNN reads: “Truck kills 9 at Berlin Christmas market.”
“A tractor trailer barreled into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin on Monday night, killing nine and injuring at least 50,” reported CNN. “Officials are investigating the crash as an act of terrorism, according to a German intelligence official familiar with the matter.”
That’s a misleading headline then if officials are actively investigating the incident as an act of terrorism, unless trucks can become radicalized and kill.

RUSH: 'FAKE NEWS' Being Led By Obama, Hillary And New York Times

Well obviously it could not have had anything to do with her creepy, fake smile, her human-like warmth or the swamp of corruption and even treason that she has made for herself. It must be the Russians! And FAKE NEWS! In his latest FIREWALL, Bill Whittle picks apart this nonsense and places the blame squarely on the head of the sore loser responsible for her thrashing.

Who is Criticizing Black Lives Matter?

An executive for the Eric Trump Foundation made the case on the floor of the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night that black lives have historically mattered less than the lives of others.
Lynne Patton, a black woman and an assistant to Eric Trump, son of the GOP presidential nominee, thrilled convention with a spirited argument that Donald Trump will repair racial divisions in the U.S.
“There’s not one person in this room who can dispute that historically black lives have mattered less,” she said. “My life mattered less. And whether we like it or not, there are people out there who still believe this to be true. As a minority myself, I personally pledge to you that Donald Trump knows that my life matters, that your life matters, that LGBT lives matter. He knows that veteran lives matter and he knows that blue lives matter.”
The crowd cheered and many came to their feet.
“I’m proud to stand here tonight and support Donald trump not in spite of the color of my skin, but because of the color of my skin,” she said.

David Icke: The 'Fake News' Hoax - The System is Desperate


This representative exhibition of modern journalism does little to advance the cause of professional credibility

U.S. Media outlets wonder why the average American is indifferent to their pearl-clutching anxiety over lost credibility.  With that in mind, perhaps this example is apropos on many levels. There’s a few layers to this story.
The “reporter/journalist” is Julia Ioffe.  A now fired writer for Politico, a frequent CNN guest and contributor, and a journalist recently hired by the Atlantic.
Yeah, suffice to say this representative exhibition of modern journalism does little to advance the cause of professional credibility.  However, the layers of irony only begin with the vulgarity.
The actual point of Ioffe’s contention, as described within The Hill link as the basis for her point of reference, is a report from Sara Murray of CNN claiming Ivanka Trump was moving into a White House office traditionally used by the First Lady.
So, essentially, Julia Ioffe for Politico, was using vulgarity to opine on a report from The Hill, who were reporting on a report from CNN.  Sounds like the concentric circles of media again.
However, the originating CNN report was completely false.  ie. “Fake News“.
Politico, via Ioffe, was commenting on a fake news story from The Hill, which was based on a fake news story from Sara Murray at CNN.
Yeah, what was that about credibility again? And yet the White House Correspondents Association is fraught with angst about possible Trump Administration changes to the current status of media operations in/around the White House?   Meanwhile, journalists tweeting “President Trump is fucking his daughter“, notwithstanding…. or something.  I digress.
Ms. Julia Ioffe was already leaving Politico, so when they said they fired her, it was no biggie.  Ioffe is headed to The Atlantic for her new job in Journalism.
So here’s the way Ioffe’s new boss at The Atlantic looks at it, per Emily Lenzner (Senior Vice-President of Communications):
julia-loffe-3-atlantic(link) – Oh, Ms. Ioffe “made a mistake” when she promoted a fake news story and said: “Trump is fucking his daughter“.  A mistake, like putting on two of the wrong colored socks, or something. She made a “mistake“, and she “apologized“.  Well, alrighty then.
I guess we, the media consuming public, are to believe the mistake didn’t actually outline the ideology, tone, perspective or internal sensibility of Ms. Ioffe, toward the President.
A person has to wonder what would happen to a reporter who publicly said President Obama was having sex with his daughters.  Just wondering…
We have a president-elect who popularized "saying what everyone is thinking," but I guess my phrasing should've been more delicate.
“What everyone is thinking“?… really?
People need to lay off @juliaioffe. She apologized, but of course Twiitter wants her burned at the stake. She's a great journo. Period.
