On the ropes

"The 'missing' surveillance footage of Jeffrey Epstein's first suicide attempt is FOUND, a day after it was reported missing from Manhattan jail" (Lenthang)!

"Syria Launches New Idlib Campaign - UN Battle Over Control Of Aid For Syrians" (Moon).  There's a lot of wailing going on over the Russia/China humanitarian veto of more supplies for the terrorists.

Tweet (Chuck Ross):
"NEW: George Soros gave $1 million in 2017 and $500k in 2018 to The Democracy Integrity Project, the brainchild of Fusion GPS and Daniel Jones, through his group, Fund for Policy Reform."
This is really strange, as Twitter never acts outside of the confines of the strictures of the Deep State:  tweet (Borzou Daragahi):
"In blow to pro-MbS, Trump, and MEK propaganda operations, Twitter cuts 88,000 Saudi-linked accounts, shares data about 6,000 of them blog.twitter.com/en_us/topics/c"
Tweet (Ben Norton):
"The International Criminal Court (ICC), which spends pretty much all of its time prosecuting Africans, has finally announced that it is investigating war crimes by the Israeli apartheid regime"
Absolutely nothing will come of this - it appears to be just a shake-down of the Khazar billionaires which will go away once the shekels arrive - but the Khazars are freaking out anyway:  "In Israel's Attempt to Deflect ICC Prosecutor's Call to Probe War Crimes, It Admitted to the Occupation" (Landau).

"Did John Brennan's CIA Create Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks? by Larry C Johnson" (you can see why the CIA is so mad at Assange for leaking Vault 7):
"So guess what gullible techies "discovered" in mid-June 2016? The meta data in the Guccifer 2.0 communications had "Russian fingerprints."
We still don't know who he is or whether he works for the Russian government, but one thing is for sure: Guccifer 2.0—the nom de guerre of the person claiming he hacked the Democratic National Committee and published hundreds of pages that appeared to prove it—left behind fingerprints implicating a Russian-speaking person with a nostalgia for the country's lost Soviet era.
Exhibit A in the case is this document created and later edited in the ubiquitous Microsoft Word format. Metadata left inside the file shows it was last edited by someone using the computer name "Феликс Эдмундович." That means the computer was configured to use the Russian language and that it was connected to a Russian-language keyboard. More intriguing still, "Феликс Эдмундович" is the colloquial name that translates to Felix Dzerzhinsky, the 20th Century Russian statesman who is best known for founding the Soviet secret police. (The metadata also shows that the purported DNC strategy memo was originally created by someone named Warren Flood, which happens to be the name of a LinkedIn user claiming to provide strategy and data analytics services to Democratic candidates.)
Just use your common sense. If the Russians were really trying to carry out a covert cyberattack, do you really think they are so sloppy and incompetent to insert the name of the creator of the Soviet secret police in the metadata? No. The Russians are not clowns. This was a clumsy attempt to frame the Russians.
Why would the CIA do this? The CIA knew that Podesta's emails had been hacked and were circulating on the internet. But they had no evidence about the identity of the culprit. If they had such evidence, they would have cited it in the 2017 ICA.
The U.S. intelligence community became aware around May 26, 2016 that someone with access to the DNC network was offering those emails to Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Julian Assange and people who spoke to him indicate that the person was Seth Rich. Whether or not it was Seth, the Trump Task Force at CIA was aware that the emails, which would be embarrassing to the Clinton campaign, would be released at some time in the future. Hence the motive to create Guccifer 2.0 and pin the blame on Russia.
It is essential to recall the timeline of the alleged Russian intrusion into the DNC network. The only source for the claim that Russia hacked the DNC is a private cyber security firm, CrowdStrike. Here is the timeline for the DNC "hack."
Here are the facts on the public record. They are at odds with the claims of the Intelligence Community:
  1. It was 29 April 2016, when the DNC claims it became aware its servers had been penetrated. No claim yet about who was responsible. And no claim that there had been a prior warning by the FBI of a penetration of the DNC by Russian military intelligence.
  2. According to CrowdStrike founder, Dimitri Alperovitch, his company first supposedly detected the Russians mucking around inside the DNC server on 6 May 2016. A CrowdStrike intelligence analyst reportedly told Alperovitch that:
    • Falcon had identified not one but two Russian intruders: Cozy Bear, a group CrowdStrike's experts believed was affiliated with the FSB, Russia's answer to the CIA; and Fancy Bear, which they had linked to the GRU, Russian military intelligence.
  3. The Wikileaks data shows that the last message copied from the DNC network is dated Wed, 25 May 2016 08:48:35.  
  4. 10 June 2016--CrowdStrike waited until 10 June 2016 to take concrete steps to clean up the DNC network. Alperovitch told Esquire’s Vicky Ward that: 'Ultimately, the teams decided it was necessary to replace the software on every computer at the DNC. Until the network was clean, secrecy was vital. On the afternoon of Friday, June 10, all DNC employees were instructed to leave their laptops in the office."
  5. On June 14, 2016, Ellen Nakamura, a Washington Post reporter who had been briefed by computer security company hired by the DNC—Crowdstrike--, wrote:
    • Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach.
    • The intruders so thoroughly compromised the DNC’s system that they also were able to read all email and chat traffic, said DNC officials and the security experts.
    • The intrusion into the DNC was one of several targeting American political organizations. The networks of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were also targeted by Russian spies, as were the computers of some Republican political action committees, U.S. officials said. But details on those cases were not available.
  6. 15 June, 2016, an internet "personality" self-described as Guccifer 2.0 surfaces and claims to be responsible for the hacks but denies being Russian. The people/entity behind Guccifer 2.0:
  • Used a Russian VPN service provider to conceal their identity.
  • Created an email account with AOL.fr (a service that exposes the sender's IP address) and contacted the press (exposing his VPN IP address in the process).
  • Contacted various media outlets through this set up and claimed credit for hacking the DNC, sharing copies of files purportedly from the hack (one of which had Russian error messages embedded in them) with reporters from Gawker, The Smoking Gun and other outlets.
  • Carried out searches for terms that were mostly in English, several of which would appear in Guccifer 2.0's first blog post. They chose to do this via a server based in Moscow. (this is from the indictment,
    "On or about June 15, 2016, the Conspirators logged into a Moscow-based server used and managed by Unit 74455")
  • Created a blog and made an initial blog post claiming to have hacked the DNC, providing links to various documents as proof.
  • Carelessly dropped a "Russian Smiley" into his first blog post.
  • Managed to add the name "Феликс Эдмундович" (which translates to Felix Dzerzhinsky, also known as "Iron Felix") to the metadata of several documents. (Several sources went beyond what the evidence shows and made claims about Guccifer 2.0 using a Russian keyboard, however, these claims are just assumptions made in response to the presence of cyrillic characters.)
The only thing that the Guccifer 2.0 character did not do to declare its Russian heritage was to take out full page ads in the New York Times and Washington Post. But the "forensic" fingerprints that Guccifer 2.0 was leaving behind is not the only inexplicable event.
Time for the common sense standard again. Crowdstrike detected the Russians on the 6th of May, according to CEO Dimitri Alperovitch, but took no steps to shutdown the network, eliminate the malware and clean the computers until 34 days later, i.e., the 10th of June. That is 34 days of inexcusable inaction.
It is only AFTER Julian Assange announces on 12 June 2016 that WikiLeaks has emails relating to Hillary Clinton that DCLeaks or Guccifer 2.0 try to contact Assange. 
The actions attributed to DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 should be priority investigative targets for U.S. Attorney John Durham's team of investigators. This potential use of a known CIA tool, developed under Brennan with the sole purpose to obfuscate the source of intrusions, pointing to another nation, as a false flag operation, is one of the actions and issues that U.S. Attorney John Durham should be looking into  as a potential act of “Seditious conspiracy. It needs to be done. To quote the CIA, I strongly assess that the only intelligence agency that evidence indicates was meddling via cyber attacks in the 2016 Presidential election was the CIA, not the GRU."
"The FBI - Pushed By John Brennan - Lied To The Court Seven Times To Spy On The Trump Campaign" (Moon).  Sadly, Durham is going to be another cover-up/disappointment.  Some FBI traitors will be selected for nominal punishment.  Brennan's CIA pals have too much dirt on everybody for him to pay for his mass treason.

Part of the reason why I think the name should be officially changed to Assholia, with a Goatse flag: "The Day America Turned Bone Mean" (Butler).

"What has OUR Congress done for Israel Lately?" (Bacon). It is almost impossible to imagine, but ZOG is becoming much, much worse.

Roberts is growing increasingly straightforwardly honest:  "America on the Ropes" (Roberts). The ropes are Khazar.

"Media, Human Rights Groups Silent Over Politically-Motivated Murder of Journalist in Bolivia" (MacLeod).

"Inside Journalist Tareq Haddad’s Spectacular Departure from Newsweek" (MacLeod).  Of course, the striking thing is that 'journalists' never resign on the principle of not telling lies.  Never!  They just retype the press releases and pocket the shekels.

I know that The Saker has been dumping all over Zelensky, claiming he's too weak to make the decisions that are necessary to start to save Ukraine, but maybe he's got more backbone than anyone is prepared to concede:  "'Gas War' Averted: Russia & Ukraine Agree To Crucial Transit Deal, Defying The Hawks" (Durden).

"Billionaire Sheldon Adelson Is Trying To Use An Anti-SLAPP Law To Get Out Of Paying Anti-SLAPP Damages And It Ain't Working" (Masnick).
