US and Ecuador deny conspiring to take Julian Assange offline

H/rt reader squodgy:

“We don’t need any more proof than this.

Kerry obviously threatened them, as it has repeatedly over the last fifty years….if in doubt please read “New Confessions of an Economic Hitman” by John Perkins, it explains how the UasA has covertly taken over the world via bribes, corruption and blackmail in favour of Global Corporations, and if leaders rejected their advances they were either accidentally killed in plane crashes or ousted by engineered coup.”

US and Ecuador deny conspiring to take Julian Assange offline:

The governments of the US and Ecuador have denied that they conspired to silence Julian Assange, after the WikiLeaks founder’s internet access was cut off at his London embassy home to stop him releasing damaging information about Hillary Clinton’s US election campaign.

Ecuador confirmed late on Tuesday that it had intervened at the weekend to temporarily restrict Assange’s internet access, pointing to a “wealth” of WikiLeaks publications “impacting on the US election campaign” as the reason. WikiLeaks has released successive dumps of damaging material over recent months from inside the Democratic party and the Clinton campaign, which the US government has blamed on Russian state hacking.

Mystery Deepens Around Fate Of Julian Assange

Mystery Deepens Around Fate Of Julian Assange:

The following tweets posted by WikiLeaks yesterday set off a massive bout of speculation over the fate of Julian Assange who has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for nearly 4 years.  There has been much speculation that the sudden change in support for Assange from the Ecuadorian government was prompted by political leverage being asserted by the Obama administration to thwart the release of emails that are proving to be very damaging to the Hillary presidential campaign.

Now, just this morning, WikiLeaks sent the following tweet, quoting “multiple US sources,” saying that, in fact, John Kerry personally asked the Ecuadorian government to shut down Assange and his leaks of Clinton’s emails.

AND NOW: Kerry Calls For War Crimes Probe Against Russia, Syria

Kerry Calls For War Crimes Probe Against Russia, Syria:

It will likely not come as a surprise that just one day after George Soros slammed Russian president Putin for “heinous crimes against humanity“, giving the greenlight to the media and policymakers to follow suit, moments ago the paragon of non-interventionist foreign policy, US Secretary of State John Kerry, said that Russia and Syria should face a war crimes investigation for their attacks on Syrian civilians.

When making the statement, Kerry alleged that Syrian forces struck another hospital overnight, killing 20 people and wounding 100, adding that Russia and Syria owe the world “more than an explanation” about why they keep hitting hospitals and women and children.

“Russia and the regime owe the world more than an explanation about why they keep hitting hospitals, medical facilities, children, women,” Kerry said after meeting with the French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault on Friday. “These are acts that beg for an appropriate investigation of war crimes.”

John Kerry Gives Russia An Ultimatum: Stop Bombing Aleppo Or All Cooperation Ends

John Kerry Gives Russia An Ultimatum: Stop Bombing Aleppo Or All Cooperation Ends:

In the latest, and most dramatic – if perhaps entertaining – escalation of diplomacy between the US and Russian, earlier today Secretary of State John Kerry threatened to cut off all contacts with Moscow over Syria, unless Russian and Syrian government attacks on Aleppo end. Kerry issued the ultimatum in a Wednesday telephone call to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Kerry told Lavrov the U.S. was preparing to “suspend U.S.-Russia bilateral engagement on Syria,” including on a proposed counterterrorism partnership, “unless Russia takes immediate steps to end the assault on Aleppo” and restore a cease-fire.

John Kerry’s State Department Funneled MILLIONS To His Daughter’s Nonprofit

John Kerry’s State Department Funneled MILLIONS To His Daughter’s Nonprofit:

Excellent reporting from Ethan Barton at The Daily Caller.

Good thing the taxpayers paid for John Kerry’s daughter’s venture because he’s only ‘worth’ $300 million himself. (Officially. It’s probably a lot more.)

(From The Daily Caller)

More than $9 million of Department of State money has been funneled through the Peace Corps to a nonprofit foundation started and run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

US Won’t Release Text Of Secret Deal With Russia To Bomb Syria:

“At one point we’re going to be asked to support in greater detail this Russo-U.S. plan, so to do that we will need to have all the information,”

France is calling on the United States to share details of a deal it struck with Russia on Syria, saying the information—pertaining to a temporary cease-fire followed by joint airstrikes on militants—crucial to ensure extremists and not mainstream rebels are targeted. However, Washington refuses, with a State Department spokesperson saying there are “legitimate concerns” that releasing the details could derail a plan.

Thirteen hospitalized in Chicago after AC goes down

Thirteen hospitalized in Chicago after AC goes down:

I wonder if the victims agree with John Kerry that air conditioners are a bigger threat than ISIS. Or might they think the LACK of air conditioners could be a problem?

“Dozens of postal employees sickened by heat at River North facility,” reads the headline.

Almost 30 U.S. Postal employees were treated Saturday morning for heat-related illnesses after the air conditioning went down in a postal office in Chicago.

Thirteen employees were hospitalized and multiple others sent home.

Air conditioners as big a threat as ISIS, says Kerry:

With nincompoops like this in charge, I fear for civilization itself.

“Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State,” says this article.

Kerry wants to phase out hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) from basic household and commercial appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, and inhalers.

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy is one of the U.S.’s lead negotiators in the discussions in Vienna, says The Washington Examiner. “She said Thursday that one of her goals is to move the HFC agreement into force by the end of the year.”

John Kerry Shocker: Says Iran ‘Helpful’ in Fight Against ISIS in Iraq

John Kerry Shocker: Says Iran ‘Helpful’ in Fight Against ISIS in Iraq:

Throughout the US occupation of Iraq from 2003-2011, the US regularly blamed Iran every time the war was going poorly, even though both they and Iran were backing the same Shi’ite-dominated government. In the early going of the ISIS war in Iraq, the US has often complained about Iran’s involvement, even though again, they are on the same side.

So while he may be stating the fairly obvious, Secretary of State John Kerry made some very controversial statements today when he said that Iran was “helpful” in the war against ISIS, and acknowledged that they and the US have “a common interest” in ISIS’ defeat.

State Department Syria memo: Setting the stage for war with Russia

State Department Syria memo: Setting the stage for war with Russia:

Secretary of State John Kerry met Tuesday morning with several of the State Department “diplomats” who drafted an internal dissent memo calling for the US to launch air strikes against the Syrian government, supposedly as a means of bringing an end to the five-year-old war that has claimed well over a quarter of a million lives and driven over half the Syrian population from their homes.

The New York Times reported that Kerry and 10 of 51 mid-level operatives who signed the memo “engaged in a surprisingly cordial conversation” over the memo, which was leaked to the media virtually before the ink on it was dry.

True Reason for Kerry’s Warning to Russia, Assad Over Syria Truce

H/t reader squodgy:

“Another piece of the jigsaw leading up to WW3…..”


True Reason for Kerry’s Warning to Russia, Assad Over Syria Truce:

As President Obama nears the end of his second term, his administration’s patience over the Syrian state of affairs is running out: indeed, a five-year war has not resulted in ousting Syria’s legitimate president Bashar al-Assad.

On Wednesday US Secretary of State John Kerry “warned” Damascus and Moscow that Washington’s “patience was not infinite,” while commenting on ceasefire violations in Syria.

“Russia needs to understand that our patience is not infinite, in fact it is very limited with whether or not Assad is going to be held accountable,” Kerry told reporters after meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Oslo, Norway.

Humpday Humor? Country That Executes Gay People Pledges To Help US Avenge Orlando Shooting:

Submitted by Daniel Mcadama via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

Here is further proof that US foreign policy fact is stranger than fiction: one day after the Orlando shooting where some 50 patrons of a homosexual bar were gunned down, US Secretary of State John Kerry sat down to dinner with with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Washington, D.C. and, according to the State Department, “discussed this weekend’s shooting in Orlando and expressed their shared commitment to continue their cooperation in combatting the spread of violent extremism, both regionally and internationally.”

Russia Quashes Kerry’s Talk of Syria Partition

Masonic handshake between Kerry and Lavrov

Russia Quashes Kerry’s Talk of Syria Partition:

State Department is making noises about willingness to abandon regime change and settle for a ‘mere’ partition of Syria, but Russia is having none of it

It wasn’t so long ago that London was accusing Russia of plotting to partition Syria. The context of the allegation was that supposedly Russia has begun to see it will not be able to win in Syria and had now settled for carving out an Alawite mini state for Assad.

Yet three weeks later and one Turkey-rebel supply route less and it’s Washington which is talking up partition instead. And furthermore doing so from a position of weakness that UK’s Philip Hammond had been earlier deluding himself that the Russians were working from.

John Kerry Threatens US Banks Over Russia Bond Sale

John Kerry Threatens US Banks Over Russia Bond Sale:

Russia wants to sell some bonds and President Obama isn’t happy about it.

Moscow is looking to issue “at least” $3 billion of foreign bonds in what amounts to the country’s first international issuance since the West imposed sanctions on The Kremlin in 2014 after the annexation of Crimea and Russia’s alleged role in “destabilizing” Ukraine (because it was very “stable” before).

Since the sanctions were imposed, relations between Moscow and Washington have only gotten more contentious and when Russia began flying combat missions from Latakia on September 30, it was trotted out as evidence that Vladimir Putin is indeed determined to reassert Russian influence by sheer force.

John Kerry Makes Last Ditch Effort To Avert World War III As Saudis, Turks Prepare For Syria Invasion:

Tomorrow, John Kerry will meet Sergei Lavrov and several of his other counterparts from Europe and the Mid-East in Munich in a last ditch effort to revive Syrian peace talks, which fell apart amid an intense Russian air assault on rebel positions in Aleppo.

For all intents and purposes, the rebels are surrounded. Initially, it appeared that the “moderate” opposition might be able to persist and bog down the Russians and the Iranians with the help of supplies from the US, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia. Those hopes faded over the past two weeks when Hezbollah advanced on Aleppo and ultimately encircled the city, cutting the rebels off from key supply lines and triggering a mass civilian exodus.

An Exasperated John Kerry Throws In Towel On Syria: “What Do You Want Me To Do, Go To War With The Russians?!”

An Exasperated John Kerry Throws In Towel On Syria: “What Do You Want Me To Do, Go To War With The Russians?!”

“Russian and Syrian forces intensified their campaign on rebel-held areas around Aleppo that are still home to around 350,000 people and aid workers have said the city – Syria’s largest before the war – could soon fall.”

Can you spot what’s wrong with that quote, from a Reuters piece out today? Here’s the problem: “could soon fall” implies that Aleppo is on the verge of succumbing to enemy forces. It’s not. It’s already in enemy hands and has been for quite some time. What Reuters should have said is this: “…could soon be liberated.”
