Infowars And Natural News “Under Attack”

There is a story going viral right now that potentially affects all alternative media. I’ll let Jon Rappoport do the explaining:

 

Breaking: Infowars and Natural News under attack

by Jon Rappoport

February 22, 2017

Alex Jones’ infowars.com and Mike Adams’ naturalnews.com are both under attack.

Infowars has been dropped by its ad platform provider — adroll.com, which spreads ads for Infowars products to many, many media outlets. Last year, that ad operation accounted for more than $3 million in sales for Infowars.

Natural News has been “delisted” by Google. Google appears to have wiped out 140,000 pages of listings for Mike’s website. I just typed in “natural news” at Google and what came up was something different, natural.news — another tiny site owned by Mike, not naturalnews.com, as the top listing.

The Empire is striking back. This isn’t debate or discussion or even baseless accusation. This is war by attrition. And censorship.

This is part of the elite mantra: if we don’t like it, wipe it out.

If you’ve been awake for the past year, you’ve seen an escalation, along many fronts, of the so-called “Progressive” forces to censor what they don’t want to read or hear.

It’s taken a new turn. They want to take down key independent media outlets.

They want to narrow down the “information superhighway” to a one-lane road that runs directly into their headquarters, where all the big-time fake news is dispensed, every day, to the hypnotized masses.

Don’t let them win. At the very least, take the independent news you judge is vitally important and spread it out far and wide.

Finally, for now, a message to those individuals who, by work and sweat and intelligence, by their own efforts, have built and created independent news sites:

WHATEVER DIFFERENCES YOU MAY HAVE HAD, FROM TIME TO TIME, WITH ONE ANOTHER, THIS IS BIGGER THAN THAT. MUCH BIGGER. THIS IS ABOUT CENSORSHIP OF FREE SPEECH. THIS IS ABOUT A WAR AGAINST THE FREEDOMS WE HOLD DEAR, THE FREEDOMS THAT MEAN THE MOST WHEN THEY ARE UNDER ATTACK. DEFEND EACH OTHER.

Naturally there every reaction out there from hysteria, to a satisfied smugness from the sceptics.

My personal reaction is to stay calm and see how this plays out over the next few days. I smell a “wheels within wheels” plot of some sort. A trap perhaps? Are these sites being targeted in order to generate panic? If so I’m not taking the bait.

I’ll continue fighting for freedom of choice and freedom of speech in a calm and rational manner, and monitor the situation.

There are many ways to fight a war. Know thine enemy, and as the British say, Keep Calm And Carry On.

Martin.

Russian Ambassador To UN Dies of “Apparent” Heart Attack

vitaly-churkin

Just a day before his 65th birthday, Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin has died of an “apparent” heart attack.

Early reports say he passed out at his desk at the Russian Mission to the UN on East 67th Street in Manhattan around 9:30 a.m. this morning. Churkin was rushed to the hospital where he could not be revived. He was pronounced dead at 10:55 a.m.

The Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed Churkin “unexpectedly died” but provided no further details confirming exactly how he died. Western mainstream outlets are reporting “apparent heart attack” and an unnamed law enforcement official reportedly told CNN it was “cardiac arrest” with no further details.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is reportedly “deeply upset” at Churkin’s sudden and unexpected passing.

And suddenly everyone thinks we’re living in a James Bond movie.

 

Then again, there is the fact that a security officer was found dead with facial and head wounds inside the Russian Consulate in NYC on election day…

Don’t forget another Russian Ambassador was shot dead in Turkey in front of everyone in a truly unbelievable terrorist attack back in December…

Manning’s Freedom, Assange’s Expedition: The Game is Afoot.

 Image result for assange and manning

“President Barack Obama has defended his decision to free Wikileaks source Chelsea Manning, 29 years before her scheduled release.

He told his final news conference that “justice has been served”.

Manning was sentenced to 35 years for leaking diplomatic cables to the group, one of the largest breaches of classified material in US history.

The commutation of her sentence has been attacked by Republicans as sending the wrong message.”

Now, it doesn’t take a genius to tie that story to this one:

https://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/01/17/wikileaks-julian-assange-has-agreed-to-be-extradited-to-america-to-serve-time-in-prison/

So, the commuting of Manning’s sentence is a ploy to “get” Assange as a final “victory” for Obama and co.

The WikiLeaks founder, however, is no fool, as his latest move demonstrates:

“The attorney for Julian Assange said President Obama’s commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence does not meet the conditions of the WikiLeaks head’s offer to be extradited to the United States if Manning were pardoned.

Obama on Tuesday commuted Manning’s sentence for leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, leading many to wonder whether that meant Assange was ready to surrender to the Department of Justice.

“Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning’s sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought,” said Barry Pollack, Assange’s U.S.-based attorney, via email.

“Mr. Assange had called for Chelsea Manning to receive clemency and be released immediately.”

Assange has not been publicly charged with a crime in the United States, but his legal team believes he may be charged “under seal,” where charges are kept secret to prevent a suspect from preparing an escape.

Assange first offered in September to trade extradition to the U.S. for a pardon for Manning. He reiterated the claim as recently as last week on Twitter.

“If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ case,” tweeted WikiLeaks’s official account on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the White House denied that tweet had anything to do with commuting Manning’s sentence.”

Now, the WikiLeaks founder, who is no fool, makes his next move:

The game is afoot. Next move…?

 

 

 

 

Russian Hacking Claims “Devoid Of Evidence”

RT

The US intelligence report on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election is uncritically supported by the same media which was biased in favor of Hillary Clinton during the campaign, WikiLeaks associate Craig Murray told RT.

The former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, and a self-proclaimed recipient of Podesta emails, which he said were received from a Democratic Party insider, called the report released on Friday by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence ‘hilarious’ and ‘devoid of evidence.’

“When I saw the report the other night I genuinely believed that was The Daily Mash or some other humorous site that had done a spoof. It seems such a mockery of what we’ve had, which is weeks and weeks of assertion without evidence. And it was so totally devoid of evidence, that I thought it must be a joke,” he told RT.

He added that the report failed to cite any factual evidence “because the assertions it is making are factually untrue.”

Murray believes that the report is full of “illogical assertions built on nothing.”

“The report asserts, for example, that President Putin must have ordered the hacking. It doesn’t say that the hacking of the election or influencing actually happened. But it says: ‘If it happened, he must have ordered it.’ And as evidence, it gives the fact that after the election, Russia did not question the validity of the election process and that it in some way supposes that Putin ordered that the process be hacked. It is nonsense,” Murray explained.

He also lambasted the document for making RT the centerpiece of the alleged Russian effort to undermine American democracy.

“[The report] makes it seem illegitimate and wrong for a media organization to broadcast any information that doesn’t go along with the American government’s wishes. One example is that the report states that RT broadcast a program critical of fracking, and that it proves that RT was setting up to undermine the American economy,” he said.

“That’s an astonishing assertion. There are millions of Americans, who are against fracking! It’s a blatant attack on the freedom of the press and an attempt to limit the area of legitimate debate.”

He criticized Western mainstream media for accepting the report uncritically instead of independently confirming the statements contained in it, like proper journalists are supposed to do. He said this trend was “extremely worrying.”

“They could only put out such a bad report with no evidence to back it up if they were already certain that the mainstream media would report it, support it, and not investigate it,” Murray remarked.

“The trouble is the Western mainstream media have very few journalists anymore. They are just stenographers who type out the neocon narrative and don’t question the official line. Nobody of any intelligence could have read this report and believed it. Almost certainly the MSM journalists, who are supporting the report, have only read some of it at the start and have not actually read through the thing.

“One of the points in the report is that it criticizes RT for saying that the mainstream media were biased in favor of Hillary Clinton during the US presidential election. That’s simply true. It’s like saying ‘the sky is blue.’ There was no doubt whatsoever where the bias laid. And now we see that the same mainstream media’s… coming out to support this report and destabilize the incoming president,” Murray concluded

Unanswered questions for ex-CIA officer Ed Snowden

Now that the documentary, Citizen Four, has been released, and now that it has won an Oscar, it’s time to revisit unanswered questions, which I raised soon after Snowden’s identity was revealed to the world.

This is not an article about the value of the documents Edward Snowden took from the NSA. I leave those judgments to others.

This article is about Snowden himself and his back-story.
