Sex, Lies and Julian Assange

Sex, Lies and Julian Assange

Four Corners – Australian Broadcasting Corporation (2013)

Film Review

Sex, Lies and Julian Assange provides a detailed timeline of his 2010 visit to Sweden. It casts serious doubt on the sexual assault allegations against him.

Aug 11, 2010 – Assange arrives in Stockholm with traveling companion Sofia Wilen. The primary purpose of his visit is to negotiate with the Pirate Party for Wikileaks to use their Internet server, located inside a former nuclear bunker to discourage hacking. Anna Ardin, one of his accusers, plans to be away and offers him the use of her apartment.

Aug 13, 2010 – Ardin arrives home a few days early and has consensual intercourse with Assange. They both acknowledge using a condom which broke. Ardin subsequently claimed Assange both pinned her down and deliberately broke the condom.

Aug 14, 2010 – They participate in a public forum together and Ardin organizes a crayfish party for Assange – during which she tweets about being with “the coolest people in the world.” A friend offers Assange alternative accommodation, but Ardin wants him to reman at her apartment.

Aug 15, 2010 Ardin and Assange attend a dinner party together organized by the Pirate Party.

Aug 16, 2010 Assange, with Ardin’s knowledge, travels to a nearby village to have sex with Sofia Walen.*

Aug 17, 2010 He returns to stay with Ardin at her apartment.

Aug 20, 2010 Wilen phones Ardin about Assange’s failure to use a condom and having sex with her when she was half asleep. Ardin and Wilen visit the police together to inquire whether Assange can be forced to undergo testing for STVs. When she learns the police plan to charge Assange with sexual assault, Wilen refuses to sign her statement, claiming she’s been railroaded. The prosecutor leaks the charges to the Swedish tabloid media without notifying Assange of the charges.

Aug 21, 2010 Assange presents to Swedish police for questioning, and a senior Swedish prosecutor withdraws the rape charge but maintains the molestation charge. Assange decides to remain in Sweden to prove his innocence.

Sept 15, 2010 After repeated offers to make Assange available for further questioning, his lawyer is informed there is no arrest warrant against him and he is free to leave Sweden.

Nov 28, 2010 Assange leaks the first of 250,000 embarrassing (classified) cables exposing US war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Nov 30 2010 At Sweden’s request, Interpol issues a Red Notice for Assange’s arrest

May 2012 After losing his Supreme Court appeal against extradition to Sweden (which he and his lawyers fear will extradite him to the US to potentially face torture and the death penalty), Assange is informed the 14 days granted for his appeal to the European Court has been reduced to 0. He’s seeks, and receives, asylum in the Ecuadoran embassy – based on their fear that his human rights may be violated.

The film makes no reference to Ardin’s past history of involvement with a CIA-linked anti-Cuban group (see Raw Story)

It also makes no mention of the possible role of George Bush’s dirty tricks guru Karl Rove, long time advisor to Swedish Prime Minister Frederic Reinfeldt, in the Swedish decision to prosecute Assange (see Shadow Proof)

Presumably this will all come out at Assange’s extradition trial.


*During Assange’s visit to Wilen, Ardin tweets:  “He’s not here. He’s planned to have sex with the cashmere girl every evening, but not made it. Maybe he finally found time yesterday?”  See

Wild Bee Population Collapses By 90% In New England, Study Warns

Researcher wars as wild bee populations collapse so will crop yields, which could produce food shortages across the country.

― ஜ ۩ Whiskey Tango Texas ۩ ஜ ―

Researchers from the University of New Hampshire conducted astudyto document declines in about 100 wild bee species critical to pollinating crops throughout New England. What they discovered, according to the study, was a collapse in the wild bee population across the state,reported AP.

https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/wild%20bees.jpg?itok=IQvwzFVcResearchers analyzed 119 species in the state from a museum collection at the college dating back more than a century. Sandra Rehan and Minna Mathiasson published the study in the peer-reviewed journal called Insect and Conservation Diversity this month. They concluded 14 species found across New England were on the decline by as much as 90%. Several of the species include leafcutter and mining bees.

“We know that wild bees are greatly at risk and not doing well worldwide,” Rehan, assistant professor of biological sciences and the senior author on the study, said in a prepared statement. “This status assessment of wild bees…

Some Interesting Facts You May Not Realize When You Think About Julian Assange

When Julian was only 25 years old, he helped the Australian police bust a huge pedophile ring.

Angel Fox's blog

Most people when they hear the name Julian Assange immediately think of his publishing work through Wikileaks. They may think of his illegal detainment for nearly 7 years in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. You may only know his work from the 2016 US Presidential election. There is more to this man than just a journalist however. Not only is he a son, father, brother and friend, Assange is a pioneer, an author and a courageous soul full of heart.

When Julian was only 25 years old, he helped the Australian police bust a huge pedophile ring. That alone makes the man a hero and in most people’s case, the end of hearing about them. Assange wasn’t done changing the world though. With an IQ rumored to be over 170 and a knack for computers, he was destined to make a difference.

In 1997 Julian co-wrote a book with Suelette…

How to Be Homeless in Japan

How to Be Homeless in Japan

Our Human Planet (2018)

Film Review

This two-part documentary focuses on homelessness in the Japanese city of Osaka. When the Japanese economy collapsed in the 1990s, many older workers lost their jobs. Last year Osaka (pop 19 million)  had 18,000 homeless, mostly men. It’s easier for women who lose their jobs to return to live with family.

Part One (How to be Homeless in Japan) focuses on an 63-year-old man who makes a living collecting aluminum cans to sell at a recycling center. His work day starts before dawn, and he makes roughly $8 a day. In Osaka, one of the most expensive cities in the world, this earns him two meals of day old rice and fish, a cup of tea and a cup of sake. His spends his afternoons in the library reading.

Part Two (Japanese Homeless Fight Back) focuses on organizing efforts by Osaka’s homeless to protect themselves and better meet their needs. In addition to setting up an immaculate tent city on the grounds of a national monument, a number of them run a charity that uses expired supermarket food to provide two hot meals a week for all Osaka’s street people.

It also features a march Osaka’s homeless organized to protest the death of a homeless man kicked to death by unemployed youth.

 

Japan’s population is shrinking by a quarter of a million people every year

How do you stop your country’s population shrinking?

While some obvious suggestions may spring to mind, coming up with policy responses is not often simple. Nowhere is this felt more acutely than in Japan, where the population declined by more than a quarter of a million last year.

That’s the equivalent of three times the amount of people it takes to fill London’s Wembley Stadium in just 52 weeks, and it’s showing no signs of slowing. The total population was 126 million in the year to October 2018, a fall of 0.2% compared with a year earlier, and the eighth consecutive drop.

Japan’s demographic challenges are well documented. As well as having one of the fastest-shrinking populations in the world, ageing is a key issue. Taken together, these problems underscore the challenges facing the country’s government and raise questions about the policies that might help, including loosening immigration rules and improving labour-force participation […]

22 out of 101 members of the “New Freshmen” in Congress have worked for the C.I.A. or been in the Military (Intelligence)

Quote

Original article: Jesus Christos! The old Soviet Union had rules about KGB and other intelligence services, barring them from public office! This a huge fucking conflict of interest, do I really need to comment? Clandestine services have secret oaths and alliances to foreign powers. Their prior work in Intel wasn’t just about collecting information as MSM/Hollywood have the public believe but running what is called PsyOps and disinfo campaigns in every corner of the globe, including “Democracies” like USA and 51st state of the USA, Israel.
