Manning Threatened With INDEFINITE Solitary Confinement Over Expired Toothpaste



These bas****s are really looking for any excuse they can to torture whistle-blowers. Perhaps they hope to set the precedent for any future conscientious objectors, preventing the truth of the evil that they perpetuate from ever reaching our ears.
It seems Chelsea Manning had “prohibited reading material”( HOW the hell does a gal in maximum security obtain anything “prohibited”?? And how the heck is reading material something you could prohibit??) and could face ANOTHER life-changing bout of solitary confinement. Perhaps this next one will make her think she’s an African Elephant, so horrific is this sort of psychological torture.
Other “infractions” Chelsea was responsible for included, shudder, attempted disrespect (how? Just how?), medicine misuse relating to expired toothpaste( TOOTHPASTE! How is using expired toothpaste a crime? She was saving you money!) and disorderly conduct for pushing food onto the floor (how about accidentally dropping a piece of meat? Betcha that counts if you’re a whistle-blower!)
The penalty for these HEINOUS crimes: a maximum of INDEFINITE SOLITARY CONFINEMENT. Yeah. This is obscene.
The prohibited reading material apparently includes a Vanity Fair Magazine with the athlete formerly known as Bruce Jenner on the cover. Seriously, if the LGBT community can get up in arms over a male student who identifies as a woman wanting to enter a female toilet, imagine the kind of trauma Chelsea is going through in an ALL-MALE prison… Though admittedly the prospect of solitary confinement for her entire 35 year sentence is probably EVEN WORSE. Yet the mainstream media never seems to address that concern…
Her attorney, Nancy Hollander had this to say:”I think it’s harassment. It appears to be an attempt to silence her. Chelsea writes quite a bit. She is vocal. Certainly its not a national security issue.”

Nancy has it right, but I reckon they were doing more than that, it was not only a threat designed to silence her; they were trying to gauge the public backlash they would receive as a result, and if it were insufficient, they would have her in solitary confinement in a heartbeat.
Thankfully, the American People fought back with a petition of more than 100,000 signatures. The authorities decided not to go through with the punishment, despite finding her “guilty”  of ALL FOUR charges. They were clearly spelling it out to her… that if they wanted to, they could have her put through the horrific ordeal that she had to go through at the beginning- only for 35 years this time.
“I was found guilty of all four charges at today’s board; I am receiving 21 days of restrictions on recreation – no gym, library or outdoors,” announced a tweet sent from Manning’s official Twitter account, @xychelsea.
There should have been a million signatories though; but with just a hundred thousand, you the People have pushed them back. That is why information, and caring about issues like these is so important. The authorities would have more of us numbed to this, but I say we should keep fighting.

Shocking: Saudi Arabia Has Over 100,000 Empty Air Conditioned Tents For Over 3 Million But Has Refused To Take Refugees [Images]



People fleeing from conflict zones in the Middle East to Europe have surged to an unprecedented level, leaving many European nations confused about how to create a reasonable solution to deal with the influx.
This influx is largely due to the increase in violence in Middle Eastern countries especially in Syria where fighting between government troops and many rebel factions over the past four years have devastated the civilian population.
Most refugees who escape to neighboring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon are left in very miserable conditions. Circumstances are insufficient for accommodating them and hence some have no alternative but to risk their lives on the high Mediterranean Sea to reach Europe.

But in a latest revelation by the Free Thought Project, more than 100,000 empty air conditioned tents which can accommodate over 3 Million have been discovered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia almost unoccupied.
And the sad story is that Saudi Arabia together with some western countries are the forces fuelling this refugee crisis. The Amusing Planet reports that the sprawling networks of high quality tents are located in the city of Mina, spreading across a 20 square km valley. The tents are only used for 5 days of the year by Hajj pilgrims who are in Saudi Arabia for their religious duty.

The tents are said to measure 8 meters by 8 meters. The tents were permanently constructed by the Saudi government in the 1990’s and upgraded again in 1997 to be fire proof. They are divided into camps which include kitchen and bathroom facilities.
By critical estimation, the tents are said to have capacity to provide shelter for almost all of the 4 million Syrian refugees that have been displaced by the civil war. A war in which Saudi Arabia has been actively funding and arming jihadist groups.

Due to the increasing criticisms of the dullness of the Saudi government in the refugee crisis, the government said it has taken 500,000 Syrians since 2011. However, the Washington Post has disputed this claim. The paper said Gulf Arab nations like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and others have taken in precisely zero Syrian refugees. Many other rights groups have also said the figure given by the Saudi government is false. It is said many Syrians legally migrated to Saudi Arabia to work even before the war. And the Saudi government is using them to create a window to escape blame.
r 2
Meanwhile, as Saudi Arabia has shamefully failed to honor its moral obligations towards the refugees, it has ridiculously offered to build up to 200 mosques for the 500,000 migrants a year expected to pour into Germany. This is how low Saudi Arabia has lowered the crisis. It has surrendered common sense and its religious duty to share greed and vanity.
No wonder a reckless act by the country’s authorities led to the collapsing of a crane in the centre of the Grand Mosque of Mecca, killing more than 100 pilgrimages. Some images posted on social media showed lightning strike moment before the crane collapsed.

The Amusing Planet states in plain language that “For the rest of the year, Mina remains pretty much deserted.” This means the tents will have no use. Meanwhile, people are struggling somewhere to have just a place to put their heads down.
r 5
The likelihood of the Saudis inviting Syrian refugees to stay in Mina is virtually zero. The thousands of empty tents serve as a physical representation of the hypocrisy shared by wealthy Gulf Arab states when it comes to helping with the crisis. They are a complete disgrace to humanity.

The Refugee Crisis In Europe: Citizens of Iceland Offer Their Homes To Over 11,000 Refugees


In the past few months, people fleeing from conflict zones in the Middle East to Europe have surged to an unprecedented level, leaving many European nations confused about how to create a reasonable solution to deal with the influx.
This influx is largely due to the increase in violence in Middle Eastern countries especially in Syria where fighting between government troops and many rebel factions over the past four years have devastated the civilian population.
Most refugees who escape to neighboring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon are left in very miserable conditions. Circumstances are insufficient for accommodating them and hence some have no alternative but to risk their lives on the high Mediterranean Sea to reach Europe.

According to Mercy Corps, the number of Syrian refugees has leaped from 100,000 in 2012 to 3.8 million in 2015 due to violence and religious domination.
However, few nations like Germany, France and Sweden have called for commitment within the European Union to provide humanitarian help to these desperate people fleeing for their lives, Hungary and majority of Central and Eastern European nations are reluctant to put any help on the table. In fact, the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Mihály Orbán has even threatened to start arresting migrants who enter the country through the Serbian border. Many refugees are still left stranded in Hungary currently.

But apart from the few nations in Western and Northern Europe who have demonstrated the desire to help, the Nordic island nation of Iceland is even planning something big to deal with the situation.
According to the Plaid Zebra, Icelanders are embracing an “open door” policy, welcoming in thousands of immigrants searching for a brighter future to their country.

The citizens of the country are said to have recognize the desperate need to assist these refugees who are simply searching for safety. They have started working very closely with their government to increase the number of immigrants they can accept into their country.
It is said the idea of opening the country for refugees was started by the activist, Bryndis Bjorgvinsdottir. She created a Facebook group addressing Iceland’s Welfare Minister and demanding a change in their current agreement to only accept a minimum of 50 refugees.

She wrote in her letter “They are our future spouses, best friends, the next soul mate, a drummer for our children’s band, the next colleague, Miss Iceland in 2022, the carpenter who finally finishes the bathroom, the cook in the cafeteria, a fireman and television host”, adding that the lives of these refugees are no different from those in Iceland and that they deserve respect and compassion.
Her effort went viral on both mainstream and social media. Other citizens started backing her demands and currently, it is said the group has over 11,000 homes willing to accept refugees, offering to pay for their flights and introduce them into society in exchange for working permits and residence papers.

The Prime Minister, Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson also announced that there is a new committee that is focusing on creating a new immigration policy. He admitted there has been overwhelming support from the general public in favor of flexible asylum laws. There country is therefore preparing assiduously to admit many migrants to its full capacity in the few coming days.
Many humanitarian activists have welcomed the development in Iceland and have urged others to do so as human life needed be accorded with the greatest dignity.

Barrett Brown: Essays of the Incarcerated



It’s a story of retaliation, but not one of physical from. Barrett Brown’s letters, published on The Intercept, encompass a mind under scrutiny and round the clock Big Brother surveillance, simply because of who he is.
When reading Barrett Brown’s reflections of his time incarcerated inside a federal prison, you can see a lot of charm between his lines. The “perverted guardians,” as one comment states in response to his essays, hits the nail on the head: Brown is serving a sentence within a sentence, beside murderers with “interesting lives,” for offences whittled down to the few because the FBI couldn’t nab him on the ‘important charges.’
Brown’s essays are well worth the read, in them he tries to make sense of his world inside the prison walls, and sometimes in solitary confinement. He files a complaint against officers, citing retaliation, and finds himself being drug tested and breathalyzed before being placed in isolation. Granted they find a home brew in his locker, and granted he admits this, but the story is about the journey rather than the results.
The 23 hour lock down seems to be almost welcomed – if he can get his hands on a good book – and maybe for good reason. For Brown, the insanity of it all is difficult to take, and through his essays he deconstructs them in search of meaning and truth. His conclusions are somewhat clever, intelligent, and above all, insightful. The ludicrous nature of his situation is clear: it just doesn’t make sense.
In a world where “dealing meth is 15 times more serious than shooting someone with a shotgun,” or where an Anonymous supporter on minimal charges is imprisoned in a Federal Prison to share cells with murderers, is mind boggling for all who try to make sense of the picture.
He critiques a book he had the displeasure of reading and appears to parallel it:

Barrett Brown hasn’t lost the plot…he just sees the world in which he lives for what it really is.

World War III – Who Will Be Blamed?



If you want to start a to war, the unwashed masses must be convinced to send their brothers, sons and fathers to die on the front lines. The specter of an external enemy must be etched into their collective mind through trauma, exaggeration and repetition. History must be whitewashed, twisted and cherry picked down to a politicized nursery rhyme. At no point should the real motives or consequences of such an endeavor be discussed.

Anonymous Explains #OPDeathEater With Examples of Pedophilia Among UK Politicians


This video by a member of Anonymous is self-explanatory: it begins by naming the MPs who voted against protecting the witnesses to the alleged pedophilia going on in the UK, and then speaks a message that we should heed. Addressing David Cameron, it calls out his attempts at brushing the pedophile rings under the table by calling these allegations “conspiracy theories”.
Anonymous will not stand by and allow such abuses to continue unchecked.
Using information that is widely available on news reports, as well as  a report which had beenapparently collated from this blog, retrieved by FOIA requests apparently made by this individual. (my attempts to independently verify the claims have resulted in several  hits, but it should be noted that much of the list resulted in no legitimate hits, suggesting that much of this video’s list of politicians may simply be based on rumor, sensationalism and speculation. On the other hand, there is a real problem of politicians abusing kids as reported even by mainstream media sources, and a real effort to cover it up as I will cover later. If children were harmed and the mainstream media was covering up the majority of cases, I would be hard-pressed to ignore this source. So yeah, take it with a pinch of salt.)

The video explains in detail the reports and real cases of pedophilia that is allowed to occur among the UK’s media and political elite. Politicians and other individuals were apparently convicted and jailed for possession of “hardcore” child porn, “multiple sex attacks on children”, Sado-masochistic attacks against children, indecent assault on a 15-year-old boy, rape of a woman on her wedding day, threats to kill rape victims, rape of a 4-year-old girl, masturbation in front of children… These are but a few of the cases of pedophilia that were caught (as cited by the video),  and in some cases politicians have faced jail or had to resign… the list goes on for a fair bit longer, which would seem to prove that pedophilia is endemic to UK politics, and is no “conspiracy theory” as Cameron would claim. The sheer number of politicians that were caught suggests that the real number who have not is astronomically large, and the gamut of politicians involved span all the major parties, which would suggest that one is literally voting for pedophile A or pedophile B.
Pedophile rings doubtlessly exist among UK politicians, where Margaret Thatcher was involved in a cover-up for one of her associates…The video continues to detail recent events where pedophilia by politicians and media personalities are covered up by the police who have received dossiers of evidence proving guilt, and this is clearly the tip of the iceberg since MPs refuse to vote for more protection for whistle-blowers who fear being prosecuted by the UK’s Official Secrets Act.

Operation Death Eater is not just restricted to the UK; it is a global operation to uncover the pedophiles who have managed to obtain power, and a wake-up call to any who still trust them. Anybody can contribute information on politicians who engage in pedophilia would be greatly appreciated. They are not only dishonest, evil and corrupt… they are probably already being blackmailed by other politicians or corporate interests.
