    ➜⇢➤Julian Assange and Lockdown Injustice

    Scribes of the Julian Assange case must surely gawk with a sense of horrified wonder at each proceeding unfolding at the Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London.  Assange is in a battle that can only be described as titanic, seeking to avoid the clutches of the US Justice Department, not to mention its legal system, and convince District Judge Vanessa Baraitser about the merits of that argument.  The gigantic canvass confronting all participants in this squalid tale of vexation and oppression is the nature of journalism itself, and the central point of sharing confidential state information that sheds light on impropriety, atrocity and corruption.

    That canvas, however, eludes the judge.  Baraitser has insisted through the entire process, including the four days of extradition hearings now passed, that Assange deserves to remain caged and monitored.  The farcical show of hobbled justice must go on, including the risk posed to his frail being by the coronavirus.

    On Tuesday, April 7, during the course of yet another court duel, Assange’s legal team attempted to convince the judge to grant legal anonymity to the WikiLeaks publisher’s partner.  As with so many efforts, it ended in heroic failure, which could only be put down to a judge who does her work in a hermetic chamber mute to the world.  https://ahtribune.com/world/wikileaks/4054-julian-assange-lockdown-injustice.htm

    ➜⇢➤Israel Needs the Arab World to Be Ruled by Dictators

    In February, the chief of the Mossad, Israel’s global death squad, visited Doha, the capital of Qatar; Yossi Cohen was accompanied by Major General Herzi Halevi, the head of the Israeli army’s Southern Command. They went at the invitation of Emir Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani and met with national security advisor Mohammed Bin Ahmed Al-Masnad.

    Their meetings were effectively indirect negotiations with the Gaza Strip’s ruling authorities, led by Hamas. The Israelis reportedly argued for the natural-gas-rich emirate to continue paying millions in aid to the besieged coastal enclave.

    Even these indirect, limited negotiations with Hamas – the Islamic Resistance Movement whose armed wing opposes Israel’s military incursions – were treated as a minor scandal in Israel under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The visit to Qatar was revealed by his bitter rival, the former minister (and anti-Arab psychopath) Avigdor Lieberman, who told the media about it in order to embarrass the Prime Minister in the most recent round of the apparently interminable cycle of General Elections in Israel.  https://ahtribune.com/world/north-africa-south-west-asia/4053-israel-needs-arab-world-ruled-by-dictators.html

    ➜⇢➤Pompeo has forgotten Iran’s system changed 41 years ago: Official

    The Spokesman for Iran’s Guardian Council reacted to the US Secretary of State’s comments about changing Iran’s ruling system.

    AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Spokesman for Iran’s Guardian Council reacted to the US Secretary of State’s comments about changing Iran’s ruling system.  Iran Press/ Iran news: Abbasali Kadkhodaei said in a tweet on Wednesday that the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has forgotten that the ruling system of Iran changed 41 years ago.

    “Former head of the CIA terrorist organization Secpompeo @ claims that the popular system of the Islamic Republic of Iran must change! He has forgotten that this action was taken 41 years ago, not on his advice, but because of the illegal interference of the United States, it's looting Iran's resources, and numerous crimes against the Iranian youth and people,” Kadkhodaei twitted.

    Pompeo said in a press conference that Iran will remain under sanctions, and Tehran must change its behavior, and the Iranian people must understand the importance of it.   https://en.abna24.com/news//pompeo-has-forgotten-iran’s-system-changed-41-years-ago-official_1023907.htm

    ➜⇢➤Liberal Treated With Hydroxychloroquine Hopes He Still Dies Of COVID-19 To Prove Trump Is Stupid

    NEW YORK, NY—When Jeffrey Walton tested positive for COVID-19, he hoped for a speedy recovery. But since he has been treated with hydroxychloroquine, the experimental treatment President Donald Trump has been touting, he now hopes he dies quickly to help prove that Trump is an idiot.

    While Trump has been giving people hope that hydroxychloroquine could save lives, his political opponents have called it false hope and claimed Trump has no idea what he’s talking about. Walton, a lifelong Democrat and progressive, had joined in calling Trump “irresponsible” and an “ignoramus” and now has an opportunity to prove it by simply dying. “It’s such an opportunity, I don’t want to pass it up,” Walton said.

    Doctor Glenn Logan, Walton’s physician, says he’s been up and down. “After we gave him the hydroxychloroquine, he got really excited about the idea of dying to prove Trump is dumb, and his good mood helped his condition, and he started to improve. Because that would only help Trump, his getting healthier made him depressed, which caused his condition to deteriorate. Which made him really happy. Which helped him recover and... Well, it’s been a weird cycle.”

    Dr. Logan has been warning Walton that there is a chance he could fully recover. Walton is trying to prepare himself for this -- a world where everything isn’t black and white and Trump can be right about some things -- but he insists he’d much rather die. https://babylonbee.com/news/liberal-treated-with-hydroxychloroquine-hopes-he-still-dies-of-covid-19-to-prove-trump-is-stupid

    ➜⇢➤ “A Systematic Issue of Disparity”: Black People in Louisiana Account for 70% of COVID-19 Deaths Louisiana faces one of the worst outbreaks of the coronavirus in the United States. New data shows black people account for 70% of all the state’s coronavirus deaths, though they comprise just 32% of the state’s population. Louisiana also has the highest incarceration rate in the country, and more than 65% of the people in its jails and prisons are black. At least 28 people are infected, and 22 corrections staff have tested positive. State corrections officials are sending infected prisoners to the Louisiana State Penitentiary — known as Angola, the largest maximum-security prison in the United States — where they are being held in Camp J, a notorious part of the prison that was shut down in 2018 because of inhumane treatment. 
The ACLU of Louisiana sued to stop the statewide transfer of COVID-19 patients to Angola prison, but a judge denied the request last Thursday. We speak with Alanah Odoms Hebert, executive director of the ACLU of Louisiana, and Albert Woodfox, who served the longest time in solitary confinement of any prisoner in the United States — 44 years in Angola prison. His memoir is “Solitary: Unbroken by Four Decades in Solitary Confinement, My Story of Transformation and Hope.”   https://www.democracynow.org/2020/4/8/louisiana_coronavirus_prisons

    ➜⇢➤Albert Woodfox: COVID-19 Offers Public a “Small Window” into What Prisoners Face in Solitary Confinement

    As millions shelter in place around the world, we speak with Albert Woodfox, who served the longest time in solitary confinement of any prisoner in the United States. Known as one of the Angola Three, along with Robert King and Herman Wallace, Woodfox was held in isolation for nearly 44 years at the Louisiana State Penitentiary, known as Angola. He was convicted of killing a guard in jail, but always maintained his innocence. He says he was targeted for co-founding the first Black Panther chapter in Angola. He was released in 2016 and is now 73 years old. His memoir is “Solitary: Unbroken by Four Decades in Solitary Confinement, My Story of Transformation and Hope.” Woodfox says that while speaking to people around the country, he is often asked to describe what solitary confinement is like. “We never had a reference other than our own experience,” he says, “but this coronavirus pandemic, now people have a small window into what it is like.”

    ➜⇢➤Fake Coronavirus Data, Fear Campaign. Spread of the COVID-19 Infection

    Do not let yourself be misled by the fear campaign, pointing to a Worldwide coronavirus calamity with repeated “predictions” that hundreds of thousands of people are going to die.

    These are boldface lies. Scientific assessments of the health impacts of  the COVID-19 have been withheld, they do not make the headlines. 

    While COVID-19 constitutes a serious health issue, why is it the object of  fear and panic?

    According to the WHO, “The most commonly reported symptoms [COV-19] included fever, dry cough, and shortness of breath, and most patients (80%) experienced mild illness.”  

    Examine the contradictory headlines:

    ➜⇢➤ ‘Collateral Murder’ and the My Lai Massacre

    Comparing the reaction to the evidence of two war crimes reveals how much the United States has changed in the past 50 years, writes Joe Lauria. To gauge the transformation in the response by the U.S. military, the mainstream media and the public to a U.S. war crime, one need only compare the reactions to two of the most heinous American crimes:  the 1968 My Lai massacre in Vietnam and the gunning down of innocent Iraqis on a Baghdad street in 2007.

    The latter was captured on a cockpit video from attacking Apache helicopters and revealed in a video released by WikiLeaks ten years ago today. Wikileaks obtained the video from a conscientious U.S. Army intelligence analyst, Chelsea Manning.

    The My Lai incident was revealed to the public in Nov. 1969 through the reporting of investigative journalist Seymour Hersh. An army veteran whistleblower, Ronald Ridenhour, had first written in early 1969 to the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department and members of Congress revealing credible details about the massacre. It lead to a military investigation.

    The probe found that U.S. Army soldiers had killed 504 unarmed people on March 16, 1968  in the village of My Lai, including men, women and children. Some women were gang-raped by the soldiers.  The military investigation led to charges against 26 soldiers.  Just one, Lieutenant William Calley Jr., a C Company platoon leader, was convicted. He was found guilty of the premeditated murder of 109 villagers. (Given a life sentence, he ultimately served only three and a half years under house arrest.).  https://www.globalresearch.ca/collateral-murder-my-lai-massacre/5709068

    ➜⇢➤Bureaucrat: Stay Home and Starve

    How many Americans will be frightened by the necessity to buy food and feed their families?

    Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House “coronavirus response coordinator,” said on Saturday all plebs must stay out of grocery stores. She didn’t offer an alternative. Instead, she repeated the hand washing and 6-foot “social distancing” mantra.

    “This is the moment to not be going to the grocery store, not going to the pharmacy, but doing everything you can to keep your family and your friends safe and that means everybody doing the 6-feet distancing, washing their hands,” said the life-long bureaucrat. 

    I am reminded of President George H.W. Bush confronting a grocery store scanner on display at the National Grocers Association convention in D.C. in 1992. Bush probably hadn’t seen the inside a grocery store in decades and this new technology struck him as remarkable. He was bedazzled by that red scanner light, part of a mundane reality for millions of Americans.

    I seriously doubt Ms. Birx does her own shopping. As a top-level flunky of the state and its preferred transnational corporate crony clients, Brix likely dispatches servants to do the shopping and cooking. She has more important tasks at hand, such as frightening the public into subservience with scary worst-case speculation minus hard data, pushing house arrest, and repeating ad nauseam the hand-wash-social-distance mantra.  https://www.globalresearch.ca/bureaucrat-stay-home-starve/5709085

    ➜⇢➤The US has mobilised over 21,000 troops to be deployed across states in the event of social disorder. - Continue   

    April 07, 2020 "Information Clearing House" - The spectre of the coronavirus pandemic in the US has darkened decidedly, with President Trump warning of a harrowing next few weeks from a surging disease death toll. Into the malevolent mix are reports of American citizens buying up firearms as if there is no tomorrow.

    In recent weeks, gun sales have hit record highs amid public fears of a breakdown in law and order. Most of the sales were among first-time buyers, according to reports. During March, before the government-ordered shutdown of businesses due to the coronavirus epidemic, mandatory FBI background checks showed a huge spike suggesting gun sales had gone through the roof.

    Some 3.7 million checks were carried out in that month alone, corresponding to individuals purchasing firearms.

    Bear in mind too that each individual can buy several guns under the same application. Bear in mind too that the US is already the leading nation for citizens owning firearms, with an estimated 390 million pieces in circulation, equivalent to more than one weapon for every citizen. Bear in mind too that the US is the world’s leader in deaths from mass shootings.

    That's in "normal" times, never mind the highly anxious present development over COVID-19.    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55029.htm

    ➜⇢➤Is This Virus Fraud a Killing Experiment for Population Control?

    By Gary D. Barnett

    “Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health-care resources more prudently – rationing, by its proper name – the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.”
    ~Steven Rattner–“Beyond Obamacare”. www.nytimes.com. September 16, 2012.

    April 06, 2020 "Information Clearing House" -   The day has arrived when freedom has ceased to exist in this country. It still remains a state of mind for those in the masses that have little ability to think critically or to see the reality staring them in the face. This is symptomatic of a population in mental turmoil, this brought about by long-term indoctrination leading to mass ignorance and blind nationalism. The tyrants of all past history must be smiling as they look upon the United States today, a perfect totalitarian storm of two classes. One is the political elite and powerful, and the other is the rest of society; weak and dependent on their masters. Once any country’s people succumb to obedience, all that is left is slavery.

    A time has come when all are told where they may go, what they are allowed to do, what they may purchase, what medical care they may or may not receive, how long they must remain in home prisons, and soon they will be told they are required to vaccinate with poison delivered by partners of the criminal state. Control over the population is almost complete, as government is stripping all individuality by eliminating or controlling by force our culture, religion, and independent views and thought, in order to bring about a new order. This order will be a top-down controlling governing system, and one that relies on a frightened and obedient populace. Life as we have known it will cease to exist, as total control of every aspect of societal behavior and economy will be executed by the few while all others remain in a cage of oppression. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55028.htm

    ➜⇢➤Imagining a Department of Actual Defense in a Time of Coronavirus

    The microscopic little coronavirus is showing once again the failure and limitations of militarism in addressing the pressing issues facing humanity.

    by David Swanson  (DavidSwanson.org) — When a few thousand people were murdered on September 11, 2001, I was actually stupid enough – I kid you not – to imagine that the general public would conclude that because massive military forces, nuclear arsenals, and foreign bases had done nothing to prevent and much to provoke those crimes, the U.S. government would need to start scaling back its single biggest expense. By September 12th it was clear that the opposite course would be followed.

    Since 2001, we have seen the U.S. government dump over a trillion dollars a year into militarism, and push the rest of the world to expend another trillion dollars a year, much of it on U.S.-made weapons. We’ve seen the creation of permawars, and the normalization of long-distance, push-button murder with drone wars. All of this has generated more terrorism in the name of fighting it. And it has come at the expense of actual defense.  https://www.mintpressnews.com/imagining-department-actual-defense-militarism-time-coronavirus/266378/

    “Who’s Going to Pay For it?” A Dying Patient’s Last Words Before Being Placed on a Ventilator

    In a country that leads in slashing budgets and encouraging individualism, the top-down failure to respond to the coronavirus has been uniquely American in flavor.

    by Alan Macleod  Who is going to pay for it? Those were the last words a patient dying of COVID-19 asked Derrick Smith, a certified registered nurse anethetist in New York City. The man appeared more concerned about the potential cost he and his family might incur than the loss of his own life. Smith shared his experience in a now viral Facebook post about what he described as the worst experience of his professional career.

    “[His] Last words I’ll never forget // the response my patient gasped out (between labored breaths) to me and my team, after we explained that he needed to be intubated and placed on a ventilator. We then called his wife to have him speak to her for what was likely his last opportunity, as many patients do not recover once tubed,” he wrote, describing having to hear a dying patient use his final words to worry about healthcare finances as “next-level heartbreaking.”  https://www.mintpressnews.com/healthcare-coronavirus-dying-patients-last-words/266410/

    ➜⇢➤Sweden using ice rinks and shipping containers as morgues overflow due to Covid-19 deaths 

    Swedish authorities are resorting to refrigerated shipping containers, ice rinks and canteen fridges to store the nation’s dead as the Covid-19 death toll rises and burials are postponed across the country.

    Long weekends such as the Easter Holidays can cause a backlog but this has been exacerbated by the coronavirus epidemic and ensuing deaths and backlog at cemeteries, many of which are closed as a precautionary measure. 

    In both Gothenburg and Stockholm, hospitals have resorted to renting out ice rinks and refrigerated containers for use as temporary cold storage for the deceased, while Karolinska University Hospital in Solna has resorted to using a cold storage room for food as a temporary morgue. 

    “The big bottleneck is that our mortuary is not properly dimensioned for such a large city that we are in. It is then important for relatives to arrange the funerals so that the deceased become coffin-bound and thus can be handled by the cemetery administration,” Gothenburg funeral director Katarina Evenseth told Swedish Radio

    She added that the ice rink "will work great" as the "coffins placed on the hockey rink" due to the dearth of business amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. 

    Meanwhile, Claes Ruth of Karolinska University Laboratory said the situation was "strained" as the "inflow of bodies is greater than the outflow," a situation which, rather grimly, applies to "all hospitals" in the country.

    Stockholm's Danderyds hospital has seen a fivefold increase in the number of bodies sent to the morgue while Karolinska's body count has risen by a factor of eight, to between 100 and 150 bodies.  https://www.rt.com/news/485249-sweden-ice-rinks-containers-morgues/
