Julian Assange backs up the evidence Russia is clean
by Alex Bruce
William Binney, former Technical Director of NSA goes over the proof that the DNC emails published by Guccifer 2.0 were downloaded locally and not hacked remotely, as perpetrated by the Establishment politicians, the US Department of Justice and in an Intelligence Community Assessment Report by selected analysts from NSA, CIA and FBI issued in January 24, 2017.
Binney says the highest transfer rate was 49.1 megabytes per second, which is much faster than possible from a remote online connection. He says some colleagues challenged this assumption and ran various tests, from the Netherlands, Albania, Belgrade and in the UK and he says, “The fastest rate we got was from a data center in New Jersey…to a data center in the UK and that was 12 megabytes per second, which is less than a fourth of the rate necessary to transfer the data, as it was listed from Guccifer 2.0…However, it is the perfect download rate for a thumb drive.” He says their findings don’t prove who did it but they do prove that the data breach was local and did not consist of an overseas hack.
The next observation made by Binney seems to mesh with statements recently made by alleged Seth Rich murder witness, “Luke” who claims that US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had long been running an operation to monitor and to manipulate the DNC’s emails.
Guccifer 2.0 posted data on July 5th and on September 1st, 2016. “If you looked at it and you ignored the hour and the date but looked at minutes seconds and milliseconds, those two datasets merged just like that. So, that meant that Guccifer 2.0 was manipulating the data. He was taking one file down, splitting it into two parts, issuing one for the 5th of July and one for the 1st of September; so he’s fabricating…this shows he’s manipulating and and changing the data and so, the whole thing about Guccifer 2.0 is a fabrication…it’s worse than that, though…”
Binney makes a face and describes how the FBI and the CIA were basing their whole case about Russian hacking on this fabricated data and more embarrassingly for him, since he worked there for decades, NSA officially stated that it had “moderate confidence” that the emails were authentic.
Binney says NSA has access to all Internet traffic and are able to categorically say who hacked what from where. The fact that they never came forward with these details is what initially told him that the US Government’s allegations about the DNC emails are false.
Former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan and other members of the US political establishment are using this fabricated Guccifer 2.0 data as evidence of Russian hacking. Their chicanery is based on digital manipulation that is easy for anybody to understand. Even worse, they and other establishment Democrats keep repeating that “17 US intelligence agencies” have vouched for the authenticity of these Guccifer 2.0 logs, which is a lie.
Meanwhile, WikiLeaks publisher, Julian Assange has offered to give proof from his end that the DNC emails were not hacked by the Russians and Kim Dotcom, New Zealand founder of MegaUpload has offered to provide evidence that Seth Rich was the leaker.
Binney confirms that an FBI report exists, which says that Seth Rich’s computer had information going back and forth to WikiLeaks and that NSA would easily be able to substantiate this report.

Kremlin Press Release – February 22, 2016 21:50
The President made a special address following the adoption of a joint statement by the Russian Federation and the United States of America, as co-chairs of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG), on the cessation of hostilities in Syria.
I just had a telephone conversation with President of the United States of America Barack Obama. The phone call was initiated by the Russian side, but the interest was certainly mutual.
During our conversation, we approved joint statements of Russia and the US, as co-chairs of the ISSG, on the cessation of hostilities in Syria. Adoption of the statement was preceded by intensive work by Russian and American experts. We also made use of the positive experience we accumulated over the course of cooperation in eliminating chemical weapons in Syria.
Our negotiators held several rounds of closed consultations. As a result, we were able to reach an important, specific result. It was agreed that the cessation of hostilities in Syria commences at 00:00 (Damascus time) on February 27, 2016 on terms and conditions that are a part of the Russian-American statement.
The essence of these conditions is as follows: by 12:00 pm on February 26, 2016, all parties warring in Syria must indicate to the Russian Federation or our American partners their commitment to the cessation of hostilities. Russian and American troops will jointly delineate the territories where these groups are active. No military action will be taken against them by the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic, Russian Armed Forces and the US-led coalition. In turn, the opposition will cease all military action against the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic and other groups supporting them.
ISIS, Jabhat Al-Nursa, and other terrorist organisations designated by the United Nations Security Council, are excluded from the cessation of hostilities. Strikes against them will continue.
It is fundamentally important that Russia and the US, as co-chairs of the ISSG, are prepared to launch effective mechanisms to promote and monitor compliance with the ceasefire by both the Syrian Government and the armed opposition groups.
To achieve this goal, we will establish a communication hotline and, if necessary, a working group to exchange relevant information. Russia will conduct the necessary work with Damascus and the legitimate Syrian leadership. We expect that the United States will do the same with regard to their allies and the groups they support.
I am sure that the joint actions agreed upon with the American side will be enough to radically reverse the crisis situation in Syria. We are finally seeing a real chance to bring an end to the long-standing bloodshed and violence. As a result, humanitarian access to all Syrian citizens in need should be made easier.
Most important is the creation of conditions for launching a long-term political process through a broad inter-Syrian dialogue in Geneva, under the auspices of the UN.
Unfortunately, recent history has many examples where one-sided actions not sanctioned by the UN, which favour short-term political or opportunistic interests, have led to dramatic results. These examples are on everyone’s lips: Somalia, Iraq, Libya, Yemen.
Against this background, Russian-American agreements on the cessation of hostilities in Syria, and their joint implementation in coordination with all nations participating in the International Syria Support Group, can become an example of responsible actions the global community takes against the threat of terrorism, which are based on international law and UN principles.
I would like to hope that the Syrian leadership and all our partners in the region and beyond will support the set of actions chosen by representatives of Russia and the US.
Russian President Vladimir Putin believes global warming is a “fraud” — a plot to keep Russia from using its vast oil and natural gas reserves.
Putin believes “there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries, including Russia,” Stanislav Belkovsky, a political analyst and Putin critic, told The New York Times.
“That is why this subject is not topical for the majority of the Russian mass media and society in general,” Belkovsky said.
Putin has been casting doubt on man-made global warming since the early 2000s, according to the Times. In 2003, Putin told an international climate conference that warming would allow Russians to “spend less on fur coats,” adding that “agricultural specialists say our grain production will increase, and thank God for that.”
Vladimir Putin, action man and Russia’s first pin up choice
Putin’s comments likely came after his staff “did very, very extensive work trying to understand all sides of the climate debate,” according to Andrey Illarionov, Putin’s former senior economic adviser, who’s now a senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute.
“We found that, while climate change does exist, it is cyclical, and the anthropogenic role is very limited,” Illarionov said. “It became clear that the climate is a complicated system and that, so far, the evidence presented for the need to ‘fight’ global warming was rather unfounded.”
The New York Times published an article on how the Russian media’s skepticism of global warming is being driven by Putin’s laissez faire attitude on the issue. The Times bashed the Russian autocrat for offering “only vague and modest pledges of emissions cuts ahead of December’s U.N. climate summit in Paris.”
Russia’s largely state-run media has spent little to no time covering global warming despite huge fires raging across Siberia. Instead of blaming the fires on warming, Russian news outlets tended to focus on “locals who routinely but carelessly burn off tall grasses every year, and the sometimes incompetent crews struggling to put the fires out.”
Such reasoning wasn’t good enough for the Times, which argued that “Russian media continue to pay little attention to an issue that animates so much of the world.”
Russian media leaders argue it’s not just the tone being set by Putin, but a weak economy and unemployment woes are a top concern of the Russian public — they don’t seem to care much about the weather.
“It is difficult to spend editorial resources on things that are now a low priority in the midst of the economic crisis,” Galina Timchenko, who runs a news site, told the Times. “Unfortunately climate change is not very interesting to the public.”
Low oil prices have hampered Russia’s economic growth, and spurred the Putin administration to take more action abroad, fomenting conflict in Ukraine and supporting the Assad regime in Syria. But at home, Russians are feeling the bite of cheap oil and western sanctions.
Compliant media exposed dancing to government spin doctors fabricating a white wash
By Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept – 14 June 2015
Glenn Greenwald is a journalist, constitutional lawyer, and author of four New York Times best-selling books on politics and law.
Western journalists claim that the big lesson they learned from their key role in selling the Iraq War to the public is that it’s hideous, corrupt and often dangerous journalism to give anonymity to government officials to let them propagandize the public, then uncritically accept those anonymously voiced claims as Truth. But they’ve learned no such lesson. That tactic continues to be the staple of how major U.S. and British media outlets “report,” especially in the national security area. And journalists who read such reports continue to treat self-serving decrees by unnamed, unseen officials — laundered through their media — as gospel, no matter how dubious are the claims or factually false is the reporting.
Western intelligence agencies say they have been forced into the rescue operations after Moscow gained access to more than 1m classified files held by the former American security contractor, who fled to seek protection from Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, after mounting one of the largest leaks in U.S. history.
Senior government sources confirmed that China had also cracked the encrypted documents, which contain details of secret intelligence techniques and information that could allow British and American spies to be identified.
One senior Home Office official accused Snowden of having “blood on his hands,” although Downing Street said there was “no evidence of anyone being harmed.”
Aside from the serious retraction-worthy fabrications on which this article depends — more on those in a minute — the entire report is a self-negating joke. It reads like a parody I might quickly whip up in order to illustrate the core sickness of Western journalism.
Posted by EU Times on Mar 20th, 2015
A new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that the Ministry of Civil Defence, Emergencies and Disaster Relief (MChS) has issued an order for all companies employers to prepare for nuclear war, while at the same time the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has slammed the US for flooding Europe with tanks and armored vehicles.
According to this report, the MChS issued their order on 16 March to companies and employers to immediately provide their workers with radiation suits and gas masks as part of the “war orders” issued by President Putin. and which we had previously reported on.
With these “war orders” being necessitated after the uncovering of a United Kingdom plot to launch a nuclear first-strike against the Federation this week, a situation made even graver after the arrest Tuesday (17 March) of US Navy Captain Heather E. Cole for her failing to, likewise, launch American nuclear weapons against Russia on Monday (16 March) this report continues, the Kremlin remains “alarmed” that no one seems to be in charge of the United States anymore.
Raising this “state of alarm” even higher, this report says, was that Federal Security Service (FSB) Director Alexander Bortnikov has still been unable to contact President Barack Obama whom he had just met during a private White House visit a few weeks ago in Washington D.C. wherein the American leader stated he may not be able to stop this war.
With , the MoD further states in this report, the General Staff has ordered the immediate deployment to combat status of tens-of-thousands more troops bringing the number to over 80,000 now preparing for war.
The MoD further confirms in this report that the Federations strategic nuclear bombers have been mobilized in Crimea and that Iskander nuclear missiles are now being deployed in the Kaliningrad region, which borders Poland and Lithuania, too.
Important to note, this MoD report says, are that the Federations military actions are solely in response to the aggressive war moves of the United States against Russia, which includes tomorrows start of the US Army’s 1,100 mile armored column journey along the western border, dubbed “Dragoon Ride”, comprised of American troops from the 2nd Cavalry Regiment and the 12th Combat Aviation Brigade (providing air support).
Equally important note, this report continues, is that the threat against the Federations northern border with Norway, where thousands of Norwegian troops continue their “Joint Viking” deployment of armored vehicles and artillery against Russia, continues with no end in sight.
Most ominously, however, MoD experts in this report say, was President Obama’s order this week to immediately deploy to Germany 800 tracked and wheeled vehicles, which when combined with the 220 Abrams main battle tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles the US has sent to Eastern Europe, the 120 Abrams battle tanks and armored vehicles sent to Latvia, and the hundreds of other tanks and armored vehicles stuffed into Norwegian caves for a US Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB)…all within the past 8 months…the addition of these estimated 1,400 “vehicles of war” to Europe by the Americans clearly show the deadly intentions of the West against Russia.
And to anyone doubting the intentions of the US in wanting to wage war against Russia, this report grimly reminds everyone, it was just 11 months ago that the Obama regime was trumpeting its removal from Europe of America’s last remaining battle tank on the continent, and as we can, in part, read as reported by the Stars and Stripes News Service on 19 April 2014:
“Amidst the still-ongoing crisis in Ukraine, the Obama administration is moving the last U.S. battle tanks from Germany and, thus, from Europe.
At the same time, the Pentagon also is disbanding two of the U.S. Army’s heavy brigades in Germany. Last year, the 170th Infantry out of Baumholder disbanded, while the 172nd Separate Infantry Brigade at Grafenwöhr is in the process of doing the same.
John Vandiver reports for Stars and Stripes, April 4, 2014, that the U.S. Army’s 69-year history of basing main battle tanks on German soil quietly ended last month when 22 Abrams tanks, a main feature of armored combat units throughout the Cold War, embarked for the U.S.
On March 18, the remaining tanks were loaded up at the 21st Theater Sustainment Command’s (TSC) railhead in Kaiserslautern where they then made the journey to the shipping port in Bremerhaven, Germany. There they boarded a ship bound for South Carolina.
“There is no [U.S.] tank on German soil. It’s a historic moment,” said 21st TSC spokesman Lt. Col. Wayne Marotto.”
As to why and how our world went from last April when no US battle tanks remained in Europe, to 11 months later when they continue to flood onto the continent in the hundreds and thousands, and in the face of a massive Russian military response, should be plain to see for anyone caring to.
Now all that remains to happen is the “planned” false flag incident forcing us all into a war very few will ever know the true reasons for, but which the majority of whom, sadly, will also become its casualties.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott with his blind adherence to US foreign policy and dialogue with the corrupt President Obama, is jeopardising future Australian trade with one of the world’s largest emerging economies after China. Russian trade is worth $400m a year mainly in agricultural products, but Putin has gone tit-for-tat with Abbott since he announced trade sanctions. Putin will easily side step the puny sanctions imposed by the West as this clip shows. Abbott should have stayed out of the wrangling over Ukraine between Russia and the Zionists backed by the US. Federal and State Liberals look like having their shortest ever terms in political history, but the unfortunate consequences will be another totally hopeless, corrupt and morally bereft Labor Party Government and lining us up for WW3.
Either ASIO and ASIS have fallen asleep at the wheel or Abbott has refused their advice about the real motives behind the two Malaysian Airline debacles.
In Ukraine, West’s ‘Terrorists’ Are Russia’s Heroes
The Moscow Times

Dmitry Lovetsky / APA Donetsk People’s Republic fighter throwing a water bottle to colleagues as they arrive at gas station to refuel their tank in eastern Ukraine this month.
If President Vladimir Putin is facing the biggest international backlash of his 14-year reign, it is because he has — in the eyes of the West — violated the one great taboo of the post-9/11 world: supporting terrorism. The problem is, viewed from a Russian perspective, Putin has done nothing of the sort.
It would be impossible to understand the Kremlin’s stance on Ukraine without first taking into account the fact that the pro-Russian rebels branded “terrorists” in Western discourse are widely seen in Russia as noble freedom fighters.
Parallels can easily be drawn to the way the Islamic terrorists vilified in the West have been revered by their many followers at home — think Hamas in the 1980s. But possibly a better analogy can be found in the legacy of Che Guevara, who, prior to reaching posthumous superstardom, had been a communist icon loathed and hunted by the CIA as a public enemy.
In light of this global failure to see eye to eye, Putin is left without the option of abandoning the pro-Russian uprising even if he wanted to, as doing so would brand him a traitor, backstabbing the nation’s heroes, experts and activists told The Moscow Times.
“It has already been said that the new Russian generation is not ‘Putin’s generation,’ but ‘[rebel leader Igor] Strelkov’s generation,'” Russian nationalist ideologue Egor Prosvirnin said Sunday.
Betraying the Heroes
The insurgency’s popularity leaves Putin — whose approval rating has soared against the backdrop of his support of the rebellion — hostage to public opinion at home, Petrov said.
The president’s approval rating currently stands at 83 percent, the highest showing since 2008, according to a survey by U.S. pollster Gallup held between April and early June. The study polled 2,000 Russians and had a margin of error of 2.7 percentage points.
But as the insurgency bogs down and Western pressure mounts, the Kremlin is looking for ways to disassociate itself from the rebels — without alienating a public that holds the insurgency in such high esteem, experts said.
Analysts interviewed for this story declined to elaborate on the extent of negative implications for Putin in case he “betrays” the nation’s heroes.
But Petrov pointed out that a similar ideological U-turn in Ukraine triggered the string of protests that led in February to the ousting of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who abandoned a planned association agreement with the EU only days ahead of its signing last fall in favor of a snap alliance with Russia.
“Putin is definitely aware of how it worked out for Yanukovych,” Petrov said.
