Kushner as a Colonial Administrator: Let’s Talk About The ‘Israeli Model’ – by Ramzy Baroud – https://www.telesurenglish.net/opinion/Kushner-as-a-Colonial-Administrator-Lets-Talk-About-The-Israeli-Model-20190613-0009.html – “He has been pushing his so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ relentlessly  while including in his various meets and conferences countries such as Poland, Brazil and Croatia, but not Palestine… Indeed, this is what transpired at the Warsaw conference on ‘peace and security’ in the Middle East. The same charade, also led by Kushner, is expected to be rebooted in Bahrain on June 25… Much has been said about the subtle racism in Kushner’s words, reeking with the stench of old colonial discourses where the natives were seen as lesser, incapable of rational thinking beings who needed the civilized ‘whites’ of the western hemisphere to help them cope with their backwardness and inherent incompetence… Kushner, whose credentials are merely based on his familial connections to Trump and family friendship with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is now poised to be the colonial administrator of old, making and enforcing the law while the hapless natives have no other option but to either accommodate or receive their due punishment.”

Turkey Supplied Idlib Militants With Anti-Aircraft Missiles: Reporthttps://southfront.org/turkey-supplied-idlib-militants-with-anti-aircraft-missiles-report/ – “Russian news agency Sputnik claimed in a new report released on June 14: ‘Turkey’s support for armed the groups has begun to take a new turn recently, it is characterized by providing them with advanced weaponry, such as TOW and Kornet [anti-tank guided] missiles, in addition to man-portable air-defense systems [MANPADs],’ Bassel Shartuh, Sputnik’s reporter in Hama, said in the report… According to Sputnik, one of the Turkish-supplied MANPADs was used by the militants to hit a Su-22M4 fighter bomber of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) over northern Hama last week. Shartuh said that the warplane survived the hit

The service would recruit spies for the Mossad and provide information of interest for Israel.”

NYT: US Implemented Malware Into Russia’s Power Gridhttps://southfront.org/nyt-us-implemented-malware-into-russias-power-grid/ – “The US was ramping up alleged digital attacks on Russia’s power grid ‘in a warning to President Vladimir V. Putin,’ the NYT reported citing mostly anonymous current and former government officials… According to the outlet, interviews conducted over the last three months described a previously unreported deployment of US computer code inside Russia’s power grid and other targets. The alleged move was a classified accompaniment to more publicly discussed action directed at Moscow’s alleged hacking and disinformation attempts surrounding the US 2018 midterm elections… Anonymous advocates of the alleged strategy said that it had been long overdue after years of warnings from the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI that Russia had allegedly inserted malware that could sabotage American power plants, oil and gas pipelines, or water supplies in any future conflict with the United States.

US Military Intelligence Accuses Russia of Nuclear Testing – DIA provides no evidence of accusation – by Jason Ditz – https://news.antiwar.com/2019/06/14/us-military-intelligence-accuses-russia-of-nuclear-testing/ – “As one Russian MP pointed out last time the DIA made such an accusation, nuclear tests aren’t exactly secret. There is a huge global array of seismic devices that would immediately detect any nuclear tests carried out, and no such tests have been detected in Russia.”

UK signs Assange extradition papers to US – The US request still needs to be approved by the British courts – by Zia Weise – https://www.politico.eu/article/uk-sajid-javid-signs-wikileaks-julian-assange-extradition-papers-to-us/ – “The U.S. extradition request will still have to be approved by the British courts. Assange is due to appear in court Friday for a hearing on the matter, according to Javid… ‘There is an extradition request from the U.S. that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it,’ Javid said, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today program Thursday… He added: ‘It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts.’ ”

Exclusive: Facebook’s Process to Label You a ‘Hate Agent’ Revealed – by Allum Bokhari –  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/06/13/exclusive-facebooks-process-to-label-you-a-hate-agent-revealed/ – “The document, titled “Hate Agent Policy Review” outlines a series of “signals” that Facebook uses to determine if someone ought to be categorized as a “hate agent” and banned from the platform… Those signals include a wide range of on- and off-platform behavior. If you praise the wrong individual, interview them, or appear at events alongside them, Facebook may categorize you as a “hate agent.”.. Facebook may also categorize you as a hate agent if you self-identify with or advocate for a “Designated Hateful Ideology,” if you associate with a “Designated Hate Entity” (one of the examples cited by Facebook as a “hate entity” includes Islam critic Tommy Robinson), or if you have “tattoos of hate symbols or hate slogans.” (The document cites no examples of these, but the media and “anti-racism” advocacy groups increasingly label innocuous items as “hate symbols,” including a cartoon frog and the “OK” hand sign.)”

Plans to ‘hack Earth’s weather’ could start World War 3, panicked scientists warn – by Charlotte Edwards –  https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/9293808/weather-hacking-world-war-3/ – “CLIMATE change may end up causing World War 3 if individual countries start to try and save themselves by hacking the weather with a process called geoengineering… Many experts are in favour of geoengineering, which involves manipulating the atmosphere by blocking sunlight or isolating excess carbon, but weather hacking in one region could have negative impacts in another and lead to global conflict, according to scientists… The worse case scenario is that Earth’s atmospheric chemistry is irreversibly altered and causes freak weather conditions like monsoons, hurricanes and heatwaves that could kill thousands and increase global tensions… However, geoengineering may be the only way to reach the goals for reducing climate change set out in the Paris agreement and so many countries may agree to trialling it anyway.”

Brazil: Millions Protest Bolsonaro’s Neoliberal Pension Reformhttps://www.telesurenglish.net/news/Brazil-Millions-Protest-Bolsonaros-Neoliberal-Pension-Reform-20190614-0005.html – “In Brazil the Popular Brazil Front, People Without Fear Front along with hundreds of other social movements and student organizations, as well as twelve of the country’s largest trade unions are staging a massive general strike against President Jair Bolsonaro’s plan to privatize the nation’s pension system… ‘We know that this pension reform is a fraud, it’s a lie, and the working class is going to pay a high price for it. That is why we are out here,’ Luiz Gonzaga da Silva, leader within the Central of Popular Movements (CMP) told the press Friday morning as the nation was brought to a halt from the strike.”

I recommend yesterday’s X22 Spotlight interview of Michael Pento. Pento seems to have a lot of credibility with Dave, who seems to kind of pussyfoot around with some of the assertions he makes aggressively on X22 Reports – about Trump controlling the Fed, etc., which Pento pretty much blows out of the water with his confident analyses of the historical moment based on his deep understanding of financial systems. The picture Pento paints is not one of a system that anyone has substantial control over, but of one that is running away from anyone’s ability to reign it in, and that is taking us for a ride to remember, and not in a good way. The Purge Is Coming, Then A Reset Of The Currency: Michael Pento” – Though Dave puts “Then a Reset Of The Currency” in the title, the reset Pento is suggesting is hardly the orderly reorganization of world finances that Q speaks of. It’s of some kind of “reset of the currency” after several YEARS of “stagflation” – extreme low growth and high inflation, essentially a major depression (a word that Pento uses), followed by “a collapse.” Hardly Happy Days are Here Again.

UK signs Assange extradition papers to US – The US request still needs to be approved by the British courts – by Zia Weise – https://www.politico.eu/article/uk-sajid-javid-signs-wikileaks-julian-assange-extradition-papers-to-us/ – “The U.S. extradition request will still have to be approved by the British courts. Assange is due to appear in court Friday for a hearing on the matter, according to Javid… ‘There is an extradition request from the U.S. that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it,’ Javid said, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today program Thursday… He added: ‘It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts.’ ”
Seven Reasons To Be Highly Skeptical Of The Gulf Of Oman Incident – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/06/14/seven-reasons-to-be-highly-skeptical-of-the-gulf-of-oman-incident/

From the Blast-From-The-Past Desk: The US Empire Is Acting Like A Desperate, Cornered Animal, Because That’s What It Is – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/03/02/the-us-empire-is-acting-like-a-desperate-cornered-animal-because-thats-what-it-is/ – “This is both good news and potentially very bad news. The good news is that once America is no longer the seat of a depraved dominant plutocracy that is trying to rule the world, there will no longer be a vested interest in keeping Americans poor, impotent, and blinded by propaganda in order to ensure that the populace of their home base doesn’t rise up and seize political power. All the resources that now go toward endless war and global domination could then be used by the American people, for the American people, while still maintaining a military to protect the nation’s easily-defended shores. A real economy that isn’t propped up with the barrel of a gun could emerge, and the good qualities of a decent citizenry could enable them to thrive like a real, normal nation… The bad news is that cornered animals are dangerous, and desperate times call for desperate measures. There is indeed the very real possibility that America’s oligarchs will plunge the nation and its allies into a humanity-threatening world war rather than acquiesce to the emergence of a multipolar world and lose their empire. The more of our fellow humans we can awaken to what is going on, the greater the likelihood of the former future rather than the latter. I really hope we win.

SHOCK as Trump signs executive order that will end most regulations and oversight on genetically engineered food – by Mike Adams – https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-06-12-trump-signs-executive-order-genetically-engineered-food.html – “Even though Trump is far from an “establishment” Republican, to the frustration of health-conscious Americans, he just signed an executive order that might as well be called “the GMO Streamlining Act.” As reported by the Associated Press, this executive order directs federal agencies to reduce or eliminate regulations and oversight mechanisms that might help ensure the safety of genetically engineered crops… In other words, President Trump just ordered the federal government to turn American into a massive GMO experiment where anything goes.”

Pompeo Says Intelligence Points to Iran in Tanker Attack in Gulf of Oman – by Edward Wong – https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/13/us/politics/oil-tanker-attack-pompeo.html – “Mr. Pompeo did not present any evidence to back up the assessment of Iran’s involvement. The assertion is certain to further fuel tensions between the Trump administration and Iranian leaders, which have been at heightened levels since early May, when the White House announced military movements in response to what American officials have said is an increased threat from Iran… Speaking at a news conference in Washington, Mr. Pompeo said the sabotage against the two tankers was only the latest in a series of recent violent acts by Iran… ‘Taken as a whole, these unprovoked attacks present a clear threat to international peace and security,’ he said… ‘Iran is lashing out because the regime wants our successful ‘maximum pressure’ campaign lifted,’ Mr. Pompeo said Thursday. He added that the administration’s policy continues to focus on using diplomatic and economic pressure to ‘bring Iran back to the negotiating table at the appropriate time.’ ”

The Incredible Disappearance of Shai Masot – by Craig Murray – https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2019/06/the-incredible-disappearance-of-shai-masot/ – “The overwhelming majority of the tens of thousands who will read this article know who Shai Masot is and know why his activities are absolutely central to the Willsman story… And here is the truly terrifying thing: The overwhelming majority of the mainstream media “journalists” who produced those scores of stories about Willsman also know exactly who Shai Masot is and why his activities are central to the Willsman narrative. And every single one of those journalists chose to self-censor the crucial information that casts a shade over the “Willsman is an anti-semite” line. Every single one. Their self-censorship is not necessarily a conscious and singular act, though in many cases it will be. They are simply imbued with the line they are supposed to adopt, the facts they are supposed to ignore, to forward their career and remain accepted in their social group… Because the plain truth is that the Al Jazeera documentary The Lobby (part 1 below) showed to the entire political world that Mr Willsman’s thesis about the involvement of the Israeli Embassy in British politics and its objectives is broadly true.”

F-35′s Stealth Coating Has Big Problems With Supersonic Speedshttps://southfront.org/f-35-stealth-coating-has-big-problems-with-supersonic-speeds/ – “The F-35 B and C joint strike fighters can only fly at supersonic speeds for short bursts of time at very high altitudes before there being significant risk of structural damage and loss of stealth capability, Defense News reported, citing documents exclusively obtained by the outlet… Moreover, the US Department of Defense has no plans to implement a fix to the problem, which not only influences the F-35 airframe, but also the low-observable coating that keeps it stealthy, in addition to the many antennas located on the back of the fighter jet… The F-35 Joint Program Office reportedly classified the issues for the “B” and “C”, respectively for the US Navy and Marine Corps, models as separate category 1 deficiencies, indicating in one document that the problem presents a challenge to accomplishing one of the key missions of the fighter jet. Category 1 is the most serious class of deficiency… Notably, both deficiencies were first observed in 2011 when both the F-35B and F-35C fighter jets flew at Mach 1.3 and Mach 1.4.”

The Trade War Is About To Become An Economic World War III – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/06/the-trade-war-is-about-to-become-an-economic-world-war-iii.html – “…the ideals that globalists hate get blamed for the wars they help start, then they introduce their centralized systems as a “solution” to the problems they created. The trade war situation will be no different… The public enthusiasm for the trade war is an artificially induced fervor, perpetuated by elites within the Trump Administration cabinet, including Rothschild banking agent Wilber Ross, Council On Foreign Relations member Robert E. Lighthizer, Goldman Sachs member Steve Mnuchin, and Bilderberg attendee Mike Pompeo. It showcases a clear desire to escalate global tensions.  But why?”

Saudis Suggest Iran-Backed Houthi Rebels Responsible For Tanker Attack – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-13/2-tankers-damaged-after-suspected-torpedo-attack-near-strait-hormuz-oil-soars – “And just like that…war with Iran is now almost assured… Roughly one month after the US accused Iran of attacking Saudi- and UAE-docked oil tankers with naval mines in the Strait of Hormuz, two oil tankers were attacked in the Sea of Oman (not far from where the prior attacks occurred), leaving both ships seriously damaged, Bloomberg reports… So far, no casualties have been reported. The attack left one of the ships “ablaze and adrift,” according to the Associated Press… Sailors from both vessels were being evacuated as the US Navy rushed to assist… senior officials from the US and UAE have attributed the attack to a “state actor,” though they neglected to explicitly name Iran… All this is happening before the investigation into the attacks has even begun. And BBG’s Javier Blas pointed out that should Iran be found responsible, it would be a strange turn of events since the Front Altair is owned by John Frederiksen, the owner of the Frontline Tanker company, who moved oil for Iran during the “tanker war” with Iraq… A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition supporting Yemen’s government in the country’s civil war has come out and blamed Iran for Thursday’s attack, saying they believe they can connect it to a similar tanker bombing last year in the Red Sea committed by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels. The spokesman called the attack a “major escalation”, and reiterated in what sounded to us like a thinly veiled threat that Saudi Arabia has the capacity to protect its vital institutions.”

California Lawmakers Plan to Give Health Benefits to Illegal Immigrants – by Hannah Bleau – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/10/california-lawmakers-plan-give-health-benefits-illegal-immigrants/ – “Democrat state lawmakers in progressive California have agreed to a plan that would extend health benefits to qualifying illegal immigrants residing in the state… The legislature has a June 15 deadline and is expected to approve the deal in the coming days. It essentially extends eligibility to California’s Medicaid program to young low-income illegal immigrants between the ages of 19 and 25. The move is part of a broader budget plan, which clocks in around $213 billion… Expanding California’s Medicaid program to low-income illegals would cost the state about $98 million per year. According to the Associated Press, roughly 90,000 will qualify… ‘California believes that health is a fundamental right,’ State Sen. Holly Mitchell (D) said, according to the news outlet… A number of Democrat state lawmakers wanted to take it a step further, offering coverage for all illegals in the state, but Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom rejected the proposal, citing rising costs.”

US fuels conditions at refugee camps enabling terrorists’ return to Syria, says top brasshttp://tass.com/world/1063074 – “The United States is artificially creating inhuman conditions for refugees at the Rukban and Al-Hawl camps under its control, thus creating the risks that terror groups might return to Syria, Head of the Russian National Defense Management Center Col. Gen, Mikhail Mizintsev said on Monday… The general stressed that the control by the US and its allies over the Syrian territories and also the Rukban and Al-Hawl camps delays the effort to end the Syrian conflict, worsens the crime situation and hinders the process of returning refugees.”

Iran Calls For ‘Elimination’ Of Dollar To Stop US ‘Economic Terrorism’ – by Tyler Durden  – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-10/iran-calls-elimination-dollar-stop-us-economic-terrorism – “Iran has been preparing for de-dollarization for quite some time. Earlier this year, Iran announced that four of its banks had developed a gold-backed cryptocurrency called PayMon… Iran is also escalating its de-dollarization effort by seeking a bilateral rial-yuan agreement with China… The writing is on the wall for dollar hegemony: Iran is leading the charge, intending to eliminate the dollar from its trade, a move that could potentially lead to a shooting war with the Americans.”

Belt and Road Harmony – and Hostility – by Brian Cloughley –  https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/06/11/belt-and-road-harmony-and-hostility/ –  “On June 5 the Washington Post reported that in its most recent persecution of migrant children “The Trump administration is cancelling English classes, recreational programs and legal aid for unaccompanied minors staying in federal migrant shelters nationwide.” One shelter employee spoke for all civilised people when he said that “educational classes and sports activities are crucial to maintaining physical and mental health while the children are in custody” but this means nothing to Trump and his followers, so many of whom seem to be bigots who actually take pleasure in making life disagreeable and distressing for people who have done them no harm but have in some fashion displeased them… The BRI is drawing nations together, and Trump Washington doesn’t like this sort of thing, except on its own strict terms. The mammoth project that is intended to benefit all who care to join it is anathema to a country that Trump declares is “the greatest place on earth,” and whose representatives seek every opportunity to denigrate the venture which, so far, involves over sixty nations… At the 2018 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Vice President Pence told 21 national leaders (including President Xi) that the United States doesn’t “offer a constricting belt or a one-way road” and in March 2019 Secretary of State Pompeo declared the BRI to be ‘a non-economic offer,’ against which Washington is ‘working diligently to make sure everyone in the world understands that threat.’ ”

The Immortal State – by Jon Rappoport – https://www.davidicke.com/article/540393/the-immortal-state – “The huge central government of every major nation in the world would like to be immortal. It would like to exist for all time. It would like to justify its status and importance by continuing on into an indefinite future. It would like to become so powerful and persistent that no citizen even bothers to imagine an alternative… The current size of government in any big city in the world dwarfs the original 18th-century federal government in the United States. And this isn’t even considering the various partnerships modern governments enter into with giant corporations and banks… Modern governments help spawn synthetic archetypes, the most prominent of which is “good citizen.” A person tries to support and obey all the rules and edicts, while somehow working to improve government. The archetype exists because the most important element has been lost: PARTICIPATION.”

Daily Mail Loses Nearly 50% Of Daily Search Traffic After Latest Google Algorithm Change – by Chris Menahan – http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=60314 – “Google is now screwing over even normie-tier right-wing news sites in their quest to purge all content from the internet which counters leftist narratives in advance of the 2020 election… From Fast Company: ‘A few days ago, Google warned publishers that change was on the horizon. The search giant was tweaking its algorithm, and it wanted to let publishers know that they may notice a shift. The company said the change (dubbed the June 2019 core update) wasn’t huge–but any algorithm change will likely affect the websites that rely on accruing search results.’.. The new algorithm was launched this past Monday, and some publishers are already taking a big hit. Most notable among them is the Daily Mail, which reportedly complained about losing up to 50% of its daily search traffic as a result of this update. The SEO director of the website even seems to have taken to Google’s help forums to report the huge drop, as spotted by the blog Search Engine Roundtable. He added that they saw their “Discover traffic drop by 90%” and it ‘has not improved.’ ”

From the Beyond-Kafkaesque Desk: Drama on the tarmac: US judge foils secret deportation to Israel – by Ali Abunimah – https://electronicintifada.net/content/drama-tarmac-us-judge-foils-secret-deportation-israel/27551 – “To understand the almost unbelievable chain of events of recent days, we have to go back to 2003, when Ashqar reached an agreement with ICE to voluntarily leave the United States… If he did not comply, he would be ordered deported to Jordan… Ashqar had a job offer to teach abroad and was planning to leave the US, but US authorities prevented him from complying with the agreement: Immediately after he signed it, the government summoned him to appear before a grand jury in Chicago… Ashqar refused to testify and in 2007 the government indicted him for conspiracy and obstruction of justice… He was the co-defendant of Muhammad Salah in a 2007 “terrorism” trial in Chicago that was part of the US government’s post-9/11 nationwide crackdown on Palestinian activists as part of its “war on terror.”.. Ashqar and Salah were acquitted by a federal jury on all the charges supposedly linking them to fundraising for Hamas… Salah, who died in 2016, was nonetheless convicted of a single count of obstruction of justice and spent less than a year in prison… Ashqar was convicted on one count of criminal contempt of court for his refusal to testify before US grand juries and received an extraordinarily harsh sentence of 11 years.”

On Biblical Celebrities and Jewish Symbolism – by Gilad Atzmon – https://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2019/6/9/on-biblical-celebrities-and-jewish-symbolism – “On Friday, the entire Jewish media sphere was shaken by the fact that the DC Dyke march decided to ban the Jewish Pride Flag… Apparently the march’s organizers decided to ban “nationalist symbols,” including flags that represent what Jewish event organizer, Yael Horowitz, called ‘nations that have specific oppressive tendencies.’.. March organizer Rae Gaines, another Jewish ethnic activist and a member of the left-wing Jewish group IfNotNow, — wrote via Facebook Messenger to would-be participant A.J. Campbell, the former director of the lesbian Jewish group Nice Jewish Girls, ‘The issue (with the Jewish Pride flag) is where the Star of David is positioned in a way that looks like an Israeli flag, it creates an unsafe space.’.. We are being treated to a Jewish street fight at the heart of the LGBTQ shtetl.”

San Francisco May Lock Up Mentally Ill Homeless People – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-04/san-francisco-may-lock-mentally-ill-homeless-people – “San Francisco authorities are expected to consider a Tuesday proposal that would force mentally ill drug addicts into treatment centers against their will, according to ABC News… Known as conservatorship, the program has the endorsement of Mayor London Breed and others, who say it’s a necessary step to deal with often-homeless addicts who may be a danger to themselves or others. The program would allow a court to appoint a public conservator for those who have been involuntarily detained for psychiatric hospitalization at least eight times in a year under section 5150 of California’s welfare and institutions code. According to the report, treatment could last for up to a year. So far, San Francisco’s public health department has identified 55 individuals who would qualify for the program, and 48 more who have been detained six or seven times.”

MSM Mourns Death Of CIA-Backed Syrian Al-Qaeda/ISIS Ally – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/msm-mourns-death-of-cia-backed-syrian-al-qaeda-isis-ally-466d12a597de – “You will see continuing melodramatic garment-rending from the US State Department and its mass media stenographers about “war crimes” and “human rights violations” as though the responsibility for this violence rests somewhere other than on the US-centralized power alliance, but they will be lying. What these warmongering propagandists are doing is exactly the same as paying a bunch of violent thugs to break into a home and murder its owner, then standing by and sounding the alarm about the way the homeowner chooses to fight off their assailants.”

Judge Orders British Man Opposing 5G Released from Jail – Attempts to Silence Him Failed – by John P. Thomas –  http://healthimpactnews.com/2019/judge-orders-british-man-opposing-5g-released-from-jail-attempts-to-silence-him-failed/ – “Mark Steele told me what happened: ‘It all started with the Council sending council officers, workers, and councilors to my home to exaggerate and fabricate evidence about the events that happened as they engaged with me… I knew all the time this was a set-up and I played along. We now have all of the evidence of the false statements and perjury of the witnesses… Two councilors made false witness testimony about me and I was arrested. I spent a day in Police custody. It all came out in court and I was charged and found guilty of a lesser offence as I had admitted calling them baby killers… Then they sought a full gagging order in the Civil Courts to stop any output about 5G from me. Their claim was I was frightening vulnerable people in the area. This was the civil case, which failed… The Judge demanded that the 5G risk be debated. I was given an injunction to not break the law, which I haven’t… I did send two emails to all councilors telling them to do their duty and uphold the law. I mentioned the crime of not complying with the law – [As a result] the court said this was intimidation of the Councilors and I was fined £250 suspended for two years… The Council is still trying to silence me about 5G. However, the problem they have is the Court has sanctioned me to carry on the campaign. The recorder Nolan stated the ‘public have a right to know,’ ‘this is democracy in action.’ ”

Totally fun read (if you’re into this kind of thing): The Arrival of the Anti-Christ, Delayed – by Israel Shamir – http://www.unz.com/ishamir/the-arrival-of-the-anti-christ-delayed/ – “Thus, the two great plans of Bibi: the trilateral meeting in Jerusalem and Deal of the Century went down when Bibi failed to form a government. These nasty plans weren’t aborted by Israeli Left, or by American alt-Right, neither by Russian Orthodox Christians. One man did it: Avigdor Lieberman, an Israeli politician, the head of a small party representing Russian Israelis. It is difficult to like him, but he sabotaged or at least postponed the advent of the Jewish Messiah, aka Antichrist… I’d compare him with Gollum, the revolting and treacherous creature that followed Frodo in the Lord of the Rings. When Frodo had made his mad attempt to claim the Ring for himself, Gollum had saved the quest. He bit off Frodo’s finger and fell with the Ring into the Fire River of Orodruin. Even Gollum may have something yet to do, Gandalf concluded… He did it out of sheer spite. Netanyahu did not treat him with due respect; he felt himself used and never appreciated. In the end, he refused all tempting offers of Netanyahu and fell into Orodruin together with the Knesset… For the readers dissatisfied with the simple explanation of sheer spite, I can offer another version rumoured in Israel. They say Lieberman did it following wily Putin’s orders. Putin was not keen to be pushed by Netanyahu and Trump to act against Iran; he didn’t want to quarrel with these two leaders either. He activated Lieberman and torpedoed the new Netanyahu’s government. Se non è vero, è ben trovato. If it is not true, it is a good story.
