Greenwald: New York Times aka the mainstream media welcomes Assange’s arrest

THIS ARTICLE IS FROM 2018!

and it seems it is exactly what was about to come in 2019 for Assange.

https://theintercept.com/2018/07/21/ecuador-will-imminently-withdraw-asylum-for-julian-assange-and-hand-him-over-to-the-uk-what-comes-next/

it shows two things:

The only place for western whistle blowers to be safe – is and remains Russia

If this legislative situation does not improve (and it does not look like it) speaking out against crimes – in the democratic west – will get you in serious trouble – even when law is on your side – just as if you would speak out against the Mafia in Italy.

This translates as: Western governments are more or less like a mafia and people have every right to abolish them.

While Moscow seems to be the only safe place for whistle blowers, Moscow will not make “extra efforts” to protect whistle blowers.

You will have to look after your self, pay rent yourself and so on.

the world is taken hostage by debt in foreign currency

the debt game is very old and is heavily used by the mafia “you owe us protection money”.

it’s a sad day and we wonder what will come out of this.

Julian Assange was arrested

Here you can see how much a vote counts, because people in Ecuador have voted for a more pro US president – and that is the result.

Julian Assange 47, has been living at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012

“In march 2012, in the capital of Belize, the brother of the President of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, Edwin Moreno Garcés was a phantom company, commonly referred to as offshore under the name INA INVESTMENT CORP.

His name is not an acronym or anything like that but the acronym of the last three letters of the three daughters that the president of Ecuador Lenin Moreno Garcés had with his wife Rocío González Navas:

IrINA, CarINA and CristINA

The phantom company of which the Chairman says have nothing to do, but takes implicit the name of their three daughters was in the first instance created with the purpose of receiving monies through the “entrepreneur,” and at the same time their front man Xavier Macias Carmignani is levied, the product of kickbacks to certain companies such as china’s SINOHYDRO and the panamanian RECORSA, paid for the lobbying carried out in the awards of certain concessions granted by the state.

In one of those movements, no more or less than $ 18 million was paid.

What are the INA PAPERS?

The INA PAPERS are an important series of documents that confirm the existence of a criminal organization led by the president of Ecuador Lenin Moreno Garcés and that having as its members his wife, First Lady Rocío González, his close friend, businessman and front man Xavier Macías Carmignani, his wife María Herdoiza Patiño, the sister-in-law of President Guisella González, the brother of the president, Edwin Moreno Garcés and the former ambassador of Panama to Mexico, Ricardo Alemán Alfaro along with half a dozen lawyers and secondary characters, by means of at least a dozen societies ghosts (offshore) incorporated in various tax havens have committed a series of crimes that include money laundering, tax evasion and tax compliance, the traffic of influences and the collection of coimas (bribery) to the detriment of the Ecuadorian state, the scope of which, given that illicit acts have been committed in different countries, has resulted in what, according to INTERPOL standards in the area of money laundering, categorizes as a transnational crime.
Ghost companies, crimes and lavish lives.

Names pompous as the HOLY SPIRIT HOLDINGS, FOUNDATION AMORE, FOUNDATION ESMALAU, FUNDACIÓN PACHA MAMA, INVESTMENTS LARENA, INVESTMENTS MASPAL, MANELA INVESTMENT CORP., PROBATA INVESTMENTS, SAN ANTONIO BUSINESS CORP, TURQUOISE HOLDINGS LTD, VALLEY VIEW BUSINESS CORP along with the infamous INA INVESTMENT CORP are some of the companies fantasy that this criminal organization used for decades for in addition to committing all of the crimes previously referred to, have been used as a bridge to the acquisition of goods lavish vehicles such as Ferrari brand, Wallets of crocodile, jewelry, the payment of eccentric trips around the world and even the acquisition below the level of real estate of apartments in luxury condominiums in Spain.

In this site we propose to the reader either a simple occasional person or an investigative journalist, see and record firsthand the evidence that opens the doors of presidential corruption in the Republic of Ecuador.

UN:

UN experts urge UK to honour rights obligations and let Mr. Julian Assange leave Ecuador embassy in London freely

GENEVA (21 December 2018) – UN human rights experts today repeated a demand that the UK abides by its international obligations and immediately allows Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to walk free from the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been for over 6 years, fearing arrest by British authorities if he leaves, and extradition to the US.

“States that are based upon and promote the rule of law do not like to be confronted with their own violations of the law, that is understandable. But when they honestly admit these violations, they do honour the very spirit of the rule of law, earn enhanced respect for doing so, and set worldwide commendable examples,” the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) said.

In December 2015, the Working Group concluded in its opinion No. 54/2015 that Mr. Assange – who at the time had a European arrest warrant issued against him for an allegation of crimes committed in Sweden ‑ was being arbitrarily deprived of his freedom and demanded that he be released.

“Under international law, pre-trial detention must be only imposed in limited instances. Detention during investigations must be even more limited, especially in the absence of any charge” said the experts. “The Swedish investigations have been closed for over 18 months now, and the only ground remaining for Mr. Assange’s continued deprivation of liberty is a bail violation in the UK, which is, objectively, a minor offense that cannot post facto justify the more than 6 years confinement that he has been subjected to since he sought asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador. Mr. Assange should be able to exercise his right to freedom of movement in an unhindered manner, in accordance with the human rights conventions the UK has ratified,” the experts further said

The WGAD is further concerned that the modalities of the continued arbitrary deprivation of liberty of Mr. Assange is undermining his health, and may possible endanger his life given the disproportionate amount of anxiety and stress that such prolonged deprivation of liberty entails.

“The United Kingdom has ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and has a responsibility to honour its commitment, by respecting its provisions in all cases,” the experts said.

“As the High Commissioner for human rights said several years ago, human rights treaty law is binding law, it is not discretionary law. It is not some passing fancy that a state can apply sometimes and not in the other,” the experts recalled.

“In addition, the recommendations of the WGAD Opinions are expected to be implemented by all States, including those which have not been a party in the case concerning Mr. Assange,” said the experts.

“On 10 December, the world celebrated International Human Rights Day. Seventy years ago, on that very day, the United Nations proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the mother of all rights contained in subsequent conventions, including the ICCPR.

“It is time that Mr. Assange, who has already paid a high price for peacefully exercising his rights to freedom of opinion, expression and information, and to promote the right to truth in the public interest, recovers his freedom,” the experts concluded.

This statement by the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention is endorsed by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, Mr. Michel Forst.

ENDS 

Background: Mr. Assange, a computer programmer and freedom of expression and information advocate, is the founder of Wikileaks, created to enable whistle-blowers to make public information they deem should be known in the public interest.

Mr. Assange was arrested on 7 December 2010 in the United Kingdom, pursuant to a European Arrest Warrant issued against him after he was accused of sexual misconduct in Sweden. That accusation has not been substantiated and after he was interrogated in London the Swedish Prosecutor decided in 2017 not to pursue the investigation.

Mr. Assange has been de facto arbitrarily deprived of his liberty since 2012 without charge or trial. He was first detained on remand and in isolation for 10 days in a prison in London; he then spent 550 days on bail terms constituting house arrest, pending his appeal before the UK’s Supreme Court against his extradition to Sweden. When the Supreme Court upheld the extradition decision, he sought political asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador on 16 August 2012, citing fears of being extradited from Sweden to the USA. He claimed that he had reasonable grounds to believe that should he be extradited to the USA, he would face trial for having published, through Wikileaks, thousands of US classified diplomatic cables and documents. Ecuador granted him political asylum and later Ecuadorian citizenship.

The United Kingdom has indicated that Mr. Assange’s fear to be extradited to the USA was unfounded. In April 2017, in his first public speech since becoming head of the CIA, Mr. Michael Pompeo described Wikileaks as a “hostile intelligence service” which claimed to act in the name of the defence of freedom of expression, freedom of information and privacy. The same month, the US Attorney General stated that it was a US priority to arrest and detain Julian Assange. On 15 November 2018, evidence emerged that the US Department of Justice was preparing an indictment against him but the charges have remained classified.

As a result of the Swedish Prosecutor’s decision not to pursue the investigation against Mr. Assange, the European Arrest Warrant against him was nullified. The remaining ground for arresting him is his violation of the terms of the bail in 2012, when he walked to the embassy of Ecuador to seek political asylum. The terms of bail included reporting daily to the local police station.

The UK authorities have made it clear that should he leave the Ecuadorian Embassy he would be arrested. An arrest warrant has been issued against Mr. Assange by a British court,  and police have been assigned since 2012 to stand-by 24/7 at the embassy gate to arrest Mr. Assange should he exit the diplomatic premises.

gesellschaftliches Engagement und Sozialkompetenz unter den Rahmenbedingungen der (Assozialen)Marktwirtschaft: (scroll down until you reach – the English version)

natürlich: Wenn man dem Chef zur falschen Zeit (in einer Zeit konstanter Krisen ist es immer die falsche Zeit) ein evtl. sogar ein gut gemeintes, wahres Wort sagt – riskiert man die Kündigung – also lässt Man(n)/Frau (Angestellter) es.

Das Engagement eines Mitarbeiters in einem Betrieb wird vielfach – nicht nur nicht wertgeschätzt – sondern oft auch bestraft – habe ich vielfach erlebt – mach ja nicht mehr wie unbedingt nötig und frag ja nicht mehr nach wie unbedingt nötig – assoziiere Dich auf keinen Fall mit dem Betrieb – in dem es nur um Posten, Macht, Geld, Profit-Maximierung und Effizienz geht.

Alle Beziehungen auch die privaten zwischen Familie, Freunden, Partner, Ehepartner, Menschen wird auf das materielle reduziert – der Mensch vereinsamt und verwahrlost geistig, seelisch, sozial und emotional.

Menschen wissen nicht mehr – wie man Kommuniziert – was sich gehört und was sich nicht gehört in zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen / Ehen / Freundschaften / Bindungen – dass man Freundschaften pflegen muss – dass es ohne Respekt und Höflichkeit nicht geht.

Kurz: Ein Puff / ein Betrieb ist ein Verein – in dem es nicht um zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen sondern um’s Geld und nur um’s Geld geht. Die Psyche ist dabei eher “störend” bzw. lästiger aber am Ende doch entscheidender Faktor – weil alle Menschen unterliegen ihrer Psyche und auch ihres Unterbewusstseins – egal wie sehr diese sich bemühen diese Wahrheit zu ignorieren.

Ignorieren von Wahrheit hat sowieso keine Nachhaltigkeit – aber noch geht es ja (grad noch so).

Ohne sozial kompetente, respektvolle Kommunikation wird die Kooperation massiv erschwert wenn nicht sogar verhindert.

Auf gut Deutsch: Ohne respektvolles Miteinander kommt keine Kooperation zustande – wird die Kooperation sabotiert – Betriebsabläufe lahmen oder kommen durch innerlichen Streik zum erliegen oder werden sabotiert.

Seltsamerweise – und daran sieht man wie ausgegoren die Dummheit dieses Systems “Geld” und “Kapitalismus” eigentlich ist – weil genau darauf eigentlich keiner wirklich wert legt.

Einmal habe ich im Radio gehört: “Was braucht man in der Ausbildung zum Raumausstatter?” “Sozialkompetenz”

Ich dachte mich trifft der Schlag. Das kann doch nicht wahr sein – unglaublich! Ist die Menschheit doch intelligent?

Soziale Kompetenzen sind ein vom “Geld” massiv vernachlässigter Faktor, der aber vielfach entscheidend ist für zwischenmenschliche Kooperation (neben Macht-Überlebens-Zwängen), es bedeutet einfach nur wieder: dem Geld ist der Mensch selbst eigentlich egal.

Dem Geld ist soziale Kompetenz egal, dem Geld sind Familien, Freundschaften, Ehen egal.

Aber Kooperation, Familien und Freundschaften und Ehen sind für die Menschheit entscheidend.

Was wiederum bedeutet dieses Geldsystem sabotiert die Überlebensfähigkeit der Menschheit.

Scheinbar ein Faktor – der gesellschaftspolitisch so “träge” (schwer veränderbar) ist, dass man diesen offensichtlichen Missstand als “won’t fix” “nicht behebbar” bezeichnen muss? FRAGEZEICHEN? (ich versuche es natürlich trotzdem immer wieder… besonders frustrierend ist wenn die eigene Familie sich als hartnäckig beratungsresistent erweist)

English:

social commitment and social skills (InterHumanCompetence) in the framework of the (antisocial) market economy:

of course – pissing off the boss will get you fired – i have seen it – one psychological hurtfull word at the wrong time (in a time of constant crisis there is almost no right time for even the most well ment words) will get you fired faster than you can say “snapchat”.

The commitment of an employee in a company is often not only not appreciated – but often punished – I have seen many more do not more than is strictly necessary and do not ask more questions than absolutely necessary, it has psychologically often profen devastating for an employee to associate her/himself with the company, because at the end of the day it’s all about positions, influence/manipulation(cheating, lies, fakes), power, money, profit-maximization and efficiency – classic capitalism.

All relationships are between family, friends, partners, spouses, people is reduced to the material level – which bad sideffects for man: lonelyness, social and mental neglected, emotionally neglect, emotionally neglect.

People no longer know how to communicate properly with each other in respectfull ways – people do not know anymore what is appropriate in interhuman relationships / marriages / friendships.

Example: one must cultivate friendships – like a plant needs water every now and then – without respect and courtesy it won’t work.

In short: a bordell / a business / an group of prostitutes is an association – in which it is not about interpersonal relationships but about money and only about money.

The Psyche is rather a “disturbing” or more annoying but ultimately decisive factor – because all people are subject to their Psyche and also to their subconscious mind – no matter how much they try to ignore this truth – it will stay true until the end of mankind.

Ignoring truth is unsustainable.

Without sociall skills, respectful communication, cooperation is massively hampered, if not even prevented.

In other words: without respectful commnication – cooperation  is sabotaged – the business comes to an halt.

Oddly enough – this is one symptom – that shows how deranged the stupidity of this system “money” and “capitalism” is – by neglecting those important factors on a massive scale (allmost ALL of mankind).

Once I heard on the Radio: “What do you need in the training of the interior designer?” “Social skills”

I thought – go ahead blow my mind.

That can’t be true – incredible! Is humanity intelligent?

Social skills are a “money” massively neglected factor that is often crucial for human cooperation (in addition to Power-Survival-constraints), it simply means: the money man himself really doesn’t matter.

The money doesn’t matter to social skills, the money doesn’t matter to families, friendships, marriages.

But cooperation, families and friendships and marriages are crucial for humanity.

What, in turn, this money system sabotages humanity’s viability.

Apparently a factor – the socio-political so “sluggish “(difficult to change) is that this obvious maladministration must be described as “won’t fix” “not recoverable”? Question mark?

(of course, I keep trying… especially frustrating is when your family proves to be persistently resistant to advice) (probably poorly auto translated by https://translate.yandex.com/… cause sometimes there is no time at work)

how did it all begin?

the “trade union” EU was started by coal and steel companies – partly as a peace project (because the one who controlled steel and coal could build and ship more weapons) – partly as a free trade project (money, money, money).

in 2018 the EU feels like a abstract monster living in abstract Brussel – far away from the people it makes laws for.

The EU has democratic deficits in it’s construction – only a small amount of people can propose laws – the parliament (750 people) can not propose laws – only veto them –  the 28 people of the european commission (EC) actually have all the power – “it alone has legislative initiative in the EU” (src)

President Jean-Claude Juncker
First Vice
President
Frans Timmermans
Vice Presidents

It feels like a money-controlled Union – and via money and debt it was how self appointed power greedy “elites” tried to hold the construct together – to be used as a powerful geo-economic trade weapon against whoever threatens the “elites” power.

how the euro currency came into existance

after the collapse of the soviet union – the DDR (East-Germany) wanted to unite with West-Germany again (1989, fall berlin wall).

But Mitterrand (President of France at this time) feared that Germany – again – could become too powerful – and yes there are power-addicted politicians in every country also in Germany – so he accepted German unification of East and West only – if Germany would abandon the “Deutsche Mark” and France and Germany would share the same currency – the “Euro” currency – with one cental bank in Frankfurt (why in Frankfurt? Why not in Brussels?) to rule them all – was born.

Kohl (at this time Chancellor of Germany) accepted the – unofficial – deal.

lured into catastrophe – leading with fear?

“In 1977, Francois Mitterrand, then the leading opposition politician in France, told the magazine Nouvel Observateur: One has to be careful not to turn the common market into a mere free trade zone. Neither Greece nor Spain are in a position to join the Community.” (src)

And Mitterrand was right – Greece WAS not ready to join – but Goldman Sachs helped to fake the balance sheet of the country to make it look like it as – we all know how it ended with severe austerity that let to poverty and suicide and gave rise unemployment – protests – right wing populism in Greece.

“Everyone dances as long as the money-music plays – if the money-music stops (no credits/loans are given out anymore) – the party stops”

Who is the troika?

European Commission (EC), the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) demand the harsh austerity program from Greece because it can not “pay back” the (mostly private) banks.

even worse: no cooperative trade – rather trade war and power projection by money and debt?

“The German government has long been accused by critics of profiting from Greece’s debt crisis.

Now there are some new numbers to back it up: Loans and bonds purchased in support of Greece over nearly a decade have resulted in profits of €1.34 billion for Germany’s finance ministry (Scheuble) which confirmed the number in response to a parliamentary query from the Green Party, according to a report by German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung.” (src)

But this time – the way back – Grexit – regaining the right to print their own “Drachma” money

seems harder and Mr Varoufakis (the then Finance Minister of Greece) fears the market could speculate against Greece if they would plan to get their national currency back. (!? not 100% sure how this is supposed to work but okay)

“Another shameful distortion of what I said (evident to anyone who actually reads the article. My line “we must be prepared for Grexit in order to fend off Grexit” was presented as “Greece must ditch the euro”. Trump has nothing on you when it comes to wilful distortion”

An interesting fact: Long serving Ex-Minister of Finance of Germany Scheuble spoke with Varoufakis and told him – Greece is made an austerity-example to put pressure on France – to pass whatever law – banks love?

Scheuble: “i needs the troika in Paris”

Macron – now seems to feel the pressure of those financiers – and out of fear to become like Greece – follows the neoliberal orders and imposes more and more austerity / exploitation on the French people – knowingly – that it did not work for the Greek economy – and it will NOT work for the French economy.

it used to be called theft – now it is called reform

they say: you can’t have a better life – there is not enough money for everybody – but there is always enough money to save the financial system when private banks are about to collapse.

it is simpled printed by the ECB and lend out to those banks for 0%.

That is how capitalism works: Exploitation

But as everybody knows – the French Revolution started in France.

Macron was educated at elite-academy École Nationale d’Administration (ENA), and served 4 years as  Investment banker for Rothschild & Cie Banque.

In 2014 he attended the Bilderberg-conference.

So you can tell there is something fishy going on – and he is NOT with the people – but with financial criminals.
