Julian Assange Faces His Fate Two Out Of Three Ecuadorian Presidential Candidates Want To End His Asylum

After more than four years sheltering inside Ecuador’s Embassy in London, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange could have Wikileak’s signature hourglass run out. Two out of three Ecuadorian presidential candidates want to end Assange’s asylum.

Since the Wikileaks founder was offered asylum by Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa in 2012, Assange has watched the world change dramatically from his tiny room at the country’s embassy in London.

This Sunday, Ecuador will hold the first presidential election in more than a decade not to be contested by Correa. Voters will elect a new President and National Assembly. Incumbent President Rafael Correa is not eligible for re-election, having served two terms.

On the eve of the election, let’s take a look at what the top three presidential candidates have said they will do regarding Assange’s asylum if they become elected.

Lenín Moreno – PAIS Alliance – Left-wing

The favorite is Lenín Moreno, who served as Vice President of the Republic from 2007 to 2013, serving under President Rafael Correa. His election as Vice President was notable because as a paraplegic, Moreno was one of the world’s few disabled national leaders. For his work providing respect and dignity to handicapped people, he was nominated for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize.

Lenin Moreno will maintain asylum for Julian Assange, but will ask him to be more delicate in matters of international politics.

The official candidate said on Thursday, February 9, 2017, that the country is “protecting his life” because Ecuador does not apply the death penalty. But he clarified that his administration would make a request to him: “We will ask Mr. Assange to be much more delicate at the moment that he treats the international politics, mainly with countries with which we have a good relation”. This statement was made after participating in a conversation with the Ecuadorian Broadcasting Association in Guayaquil.

Guillermo Lasso – CREO – Centre-right

Guillermo Lasso is an Ecuadorian businessman and politician. He was the presidential candidate for the Ecuadorian general election in 2013 for the party called Creating Opportunities. He arrived in second place. Lasso is the largest share holder in Banco de Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest financial services network.

In early 2017, Lasso launched his second presidential campaign to succeed incumbent President Correa for Creating Opportunities in the 2017 presidential elections, as Correa had already served his two-term constitutionally defined limit.

Lasso promoted an independent judiciary and free speech. The opposition and civil rights organizations consider judicial autonomy and press freedom to be threatened under the administration of President Correa.

Bearing this in mind, you might think Lasso would be supportive of Assange, but you’d be wrong. Lasso says the costly asylum can no longer be justified.

In an interview with the Guardian, Lasso, of the rightwing Creo-Suma alliance, said it was time for the WikiLeaks founder to move on because his asylum was expensive and no longer justified.

“The Ecuadorian people have been paying a cost that we should not have to bear,” he said during an interview in Quito. “We will cordially ask Señor Assange to leave within 30 days of assuming a mandate.”

Cynthia Viteri – PSC – Centre-right to Right-wing

Cynthia Viteri of the Social Christian Party who is standing in tomorrow’s election says Ecuador has more important things to spend its taxpayers’ money on than Assange.

Viteri would rather see the cash currently being spent on housing Assange, going on school lunches for children.

She told local newspaper El Comercio: “As president of this nation, I need the money used for his upkeep, for example, to pay for my children’s school lunches.”

Conclusion

Although the current government has maintained its position of solidarity, all involved have grown increasingly frustrated with a situation that Ecuador’s top diplomat described as “something out of a John le Carré novel”.

“Our staff have been through a lot. There is a human cost,” said the foreign minister, Guillaume Long. “This is probably the most watched embassy on the planet.”

NATO Continues Obama Era Arms Buildup Under New Administration

Article via Anti-War:

After over two years of buildup in the Baltic Sea area of Eastern Europe, NATO is running out of places plausibly near Russia to justify putting more troops in. They see the Black Sea, however, as a next big target for buildup, with the first US troops arriving earlier this week in Bulgaria and Romania.

The Obama Administration started the NATO buildup in 2014 in the Baltics, talking up the idea of a Russian invasion of Eastern Europe, and even though the invasion never happened, Obama and his successor, President Trump have dutifully continued the buildup with no signs of slowing down.

The big problem with putting US troops in places like Bulgaria and Romania though, is despite the Pentagon hype about this being all about Russia, those nations aren’t particularly close to Russia, and not even having proximity to the exclave of Kaliningrad, that northern European nations cling to as proof of a Russian threat.

This has NATO officials hyping up the idea of a big naval buildup in the Black Sea, which would challenge Russia’s Black Sea fleet. This has the advantage of Russia actually having a Black Sea fleet, albeit not a huge one, though the idea also has serious problems.

Chief among those is the Montreaux Convention of 1936, which strictly regulates the number of warships allowed into the Black Sea from nations that don’t have Black Sea coastal territory. NATO’s three Black Sea states are Bulgaria, Romania, and Turkey.

Which is the point at which, rhetoric aside, the NATO talk of buildup collapses. Bulgaria already publicly rejected the idea of such a NATO fleet, saying they have no intention of joining it. Turkey’s close cooperation with Russia in Syria is likely going to preclude them wanting to invest in a bunch of new warships to challenge Russia, and Romania’s Navy is itself extremely limited.

The result is likely to be some for-show deployments by other NATO members with real navies for wargames around the area, but with the Montreaux Convention limiting those deployments to 21 days, they aren’t going to amount to a practical permanent force.

Trump to Send NASA to ‘deep space’ With Plans to Privatize ‘Low Earth Orbit’

During Trump’s Inaugural address, he said: “We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space.”

How does President Trump aim to accomplish this goal?

One huge step: Trump’s plans to privatize ‘low Earth orbit’ and send NASA into deep space
Trump’s aim is to have humanity exploring the entire solar system by the 22nd century.

Robert Walker – former congressman – was chosen to draft Trump’s space policy during the campaign. He told Yahoo News about the administration’s plan to place “low Earth orbit” missions predominantly in the hands of the private sector – exceptions for military and intelligence satellites.

“As we look toward going back to the moon, going to Mars or further, we’ll want to have space resources that would be assembled in orbit so we could make them large enough and capable enough to do real deep-space activities.”

Axiom Space and Bigelow Aerospace have expressed keen interest in constructing commercial space stations, and to obtain technologies under development, such as constellations of satellites for Earth observation. They assess this to be profitable in the ‘low Earth orbit’ area, the region of space up to an altitude of about 1,200 miles. The International Space Station is in low Earth orbit.

Robert Walker has experienced skill in the space sector, being the first sitting member of Congress to be given NASA’s Distinguished Service Medal, their highest honor. He has also been involved in presidential commissions on the aerospace industry’s future and space exploration. Robert Bigelow – founder of Bigelow Aerospace, stated major aircraft manufacturers Boeing and Lockheed Martin have always had a keen eye on NASA and therefore on government funding. He claimed privatizing low Earth orbit is an important opportunity for “the little guys” to survive and establish.

Walker added: “What’s the best way for us to access space in the future? And what opportunities exist if you’re truly innovative about how your approach a space future?”

Walker claims space policy should highlight that the community of space is far larger than NASA or the military – private investors should take the opportunity to take part in achieving national goals. He calls for the National Space Council – a policy-setting body closed in 1993, to be reinstated under the leadership of VP Mike Pence to set national goals for all three stakeholders in space – commercial, military and civil interest. Bigelow argues that NASA’s approximate $19 billion budget should be doubled, and recalled conversations with William H. Gerstenmaier – associate administrator for the Human Exploration and Operations Directorate at NASA, claiming that the agency does not have the capability to return humans to the moon without assistance from the private sector.

Depleted Uranium Used in Syria Admits US

Article via The Free Thought Project:

One of the least talked about war crimes committed by the United States is the use of depleted uranium — a highly controversial radioactive waste that’s been dumped into Iraq by the ton. In spite of multiple international watchdog groups and health organizations pointing out the dangers of using DU, and in spite of the Pentagon claiming they wouldn’t use it, the United States just admitted to using it in Syria.

For those that aren’t familiar with the radioactive waste that is DU, it is the byproduct of the production of enriched uranium for use as fuel in nuclear reactors and in the manufacture of nuclear weapons. It is also the US military’s preferred material to use for armor plating and armor-piercing projectiles.

In the first three weeks of the conflict in Iraq in 2003, the US Military dumped more than 2,000 tons of this chemically toxic and radioactive waste onto the Iraqi people.

Because the half-life of DU is millions of years, the massive quantities dropped in Iraq over the course of the invasion continue to pose a serious health risk to those exposed to it. Amounts in bullets, shells, and bombs vary from 300 grams to 7 tons in the bunker-busters missiles — which rained down from the skies over Iraq — for years.

In the course of the two US-led wars in Iraq, it is estimated that tens of thousands of tons of DU have dropped from the sky onto the people.

The admitted use of DU is solely reserved to the United States and the United Kingdom. Since its adverse effects first began appearing, there’s been a massive effort to conceal the true and horrifying impact it’s had.

However, on Monday, a spokesman for the US Central Command (CENTCOM) told Foreign Policy that 5,265 armor-piercing DU rounds were used in November 2015, during two air raids against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) oil tanker convoys in the Deir ez-Zor and Hasakah provinces in eastern Syria.

A-10 ground attack aircraft fired the projectiles from their 30mm rotating cannons, destroying about 350 tanker trucks, according to CENTCOM spokesman Major Josh Jacques.

This admission by the US that it used DU comes in contrast to a March 2015 statement from the coalition spokesman who had explicitly ruled out its use in Syria, saying,“US and coalition aircraft have not been and will not be using depleted uranium munitions in Iraq or Syria during Operation Inherent Resolve.”

While the US loves to tout the exceptional toughness of DU, they continue to ignore, and, in fact, have covered up and denied the contamination of ground and water, and the significant risk of toxicity, birth defects, and cancer when inhaled or ingested by humans or animals.

Not only does DU pose a significant risk to those who live in the areas where the US has dumped it but it is also linked to tens of thousands of potential cancer cases among American troops.

However, those numbers are only estimated because immediately after the US began dumping tons of it in Iraq, the Veteran’s Administration began blocking medical journals from accessing cancer stats in its registry.

In spite of horrific cases of cancer among us troops — who were proven to test positive for DU in their urine AFTER coming back stateside — the DoD continues to claim it is safe.

The World Health Organization (WHO) even got on board with the coverup in 2013.

“The rates for spontaneous abortion, stillbirths and congenital birth defects found in the study are consistent with or even lower than international estimates. The study provides no clear evidence to suggest an unusually high rate of congenital birth defects in Iraq,” wrote the WHO in their summary findings of birth defects related to DU in Iraq.

However, this was in stark contrast to the findings from Iraqi Ministry of Health officials, who were involved in the same study. Doctors at the Basra maternity hospital in southern Iraq have told the BBC that they have seen a 60% rise in birth defects since 2003, according to the BBC.

The MOH officials confirmed that the joint report would furnish “damning evidence” that rates of birth defects are higher in areas experiencing heavy fighting in the 2003 war. In an early press release, WHO similarly acknowledged “existing MOH statistics showing high number of CBD cases” in the “high risk” areas selected for study, as reported by the Gaurdian.

However, none of that happened.

In spite of this coverup in the West, Iraqi doctors and multiple peer-reviewed studies have documented a dramatic increase in infant mortality, cancer and leukaemia in the aftermath of US military bombardment. In Fallujah, doctors are witnessing a “massive unprecedented number” of heart defects, and an increase in the number of nervous system defects, according to the Guardian. 

Analysis of pre-2003 data compared to now showed that “the rate of congenital heart defects was 95 per 1,000 births – 13 times the rate found in Europe.”

Official Iraqi government statistics show that, prior to the outbreak of the First Gulf War in 1991, the rate of cancer cases in Iraq was 40 out of 100,000 people. By 1995, it had increased to 800 out of 100,000 people, and, by 2005, it had doubled to at least 1,600 out of 100,000 people. Current estimates show the increasing trend continuing.

In a 2010 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health article, Busby and two colleagues, Malak Hamden and Entesar Ariabi, reported a 38-fold increase in leukemia, a 10-fold increase in breast cancer, and infant mortality rates eight times higher than in neighboring Kuwait.

These numbers are also likely far greater than reported as women in Iraq who give birth to babies with deformities feel stigmatized and often don’t report them according to Mozhgan Savabieasfahani, a Michigan-based environmental toxicologist who won the 2015 Rachel Carson Award.

It is also estimated that the rate of congenital malformations among newborn babies is 14 times higher than that of Japan — immediately following the detonation of two atomic bombs.

And now, the people of Syria will begin their horrifying journey down the deadly path to the same fate as Iraq.

As the disturbing images in the video below from Democracy Now illustrate — War is hell.

Man Vandalizes Neighborhood With Breasts and a Penis During Standoff With Police (VIDEO)

Police have detained a man in Oakland, California, after he spent the morning strolling around a neighborhood with a rifle, shooting at police and civilians, spray painting breasts on a garage door, and a penis on a car.

Law enforcement was called to the scene shortly after 9 a.m. after witnesses called to report a man with a rifle firing rounds in the neighborhood.

When police arrived, the suspect, Jessie Enjaian, 32, a University of Michigan law school graduate, began shooting at an officer, KRON 4 reports. Several homes were struck with the bullets, but nobody was injured.

Jessie Enjaian

A helicopter flying over the scene showed him inside a home, pointing his own rifle out the window. Eventually, the suspect went outside and began spray painting breasts on a neighboring house. He then walked over and calmly began spray painting a penis on a car.

A nearby high school and several businesses were placed on lockdown as the incident unfolded.

Eventually, Enjaian was shot by a police officer and surrendered. He was transported to a local hospital, where he is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

It was later confirmed that Enjaian lives in the neighborhood where the standoff took place. He is also the co-founder and a computer engineer at the computer company Oakland Microsystems.

According to Oakland Police Spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson, Enjaian is accused of shooting at his neighbors, the police, and the media helicopter.

“This is extremely concerning for the Oakland police Department,” Watson said during a press conference. “We have a lot of traffic that comes through the area we also have a lot of schools in the area.”

Police had reportedly been called to his home earlier this week, over another report involving threats or a gun.

The motive behind the shooting and the vandalism remains unclear.

War Criminal Tony Blair Calls on Remainers to Block Brexit

Ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair called on Remain voters to block the Brexit vote, claiming Leavers voted on a “lack of knowledge”

Image result for Tony Blair

Amid already low favorability over his war crimes in Iraq alongside George Bush, this move came as no surprise. Tony Blair in an outspoken Remainer and consistently moves to block the majority vote.

Tony Blair has said it is his “mission” to persuade Britons to “rise up” and change their minds on Brexit, BBC reports, despite the 52% leave vote being a democratic victory for Brexiters – Blair is clearly intent on ignoring the democratic will of the people that voted to leave the EU.

Blair’s anti-Brexit speech was met with a barrage of criticism from former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, calling his Blair a “yesterday’s man”. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson responded, “I urge the British people to rise up and turn off the TV next time Blair comes on with his condescending campaign.”

Blair’s low favorability among the British people follows from his long record of corruption. In September 2016, the Sun reported Blair was dragged into a corruption probe over a huge sum he bagged to make a speech in Romania. Blair was payed a large sum of £185’000 just to make his speech in Romania.

Blair’s global business empire was reportedly being funded from as much as £16’000 from the average British taxpayer in 2015 alone.

The Daily Mail also reported in March 2016 that Blair “flew to Nigeria to meet the new President, Muhammadu Buhari, and offered to sell Israeli drones and equipment to help defeat Boko Haram.”

Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith claimed Blair’s Brexit comments were “arrogant and undemocratic”. Lib Dem Nick Clegg added he “agreed with every word”. Current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is silent on the words of the former PM and Labour leader.

Foreign Sec. Johnson hounded Mr. Blair with accusations of  “insulting the intelligence” of the British voters, he added: “I respectfully say to Tony Blair, those who call on the British people to rise up against Brexit, I urge the British people to rise up and turn off the TV next time Tony Blair comes on with his condescending campaign.”

“As for Tony Blair whatever his merits as a former Prime Minister this is the guy who would have taken our country into the Euro with what would have been catastrophic consequences, this is the guy who dragooned the United KIngdom into the Iraq War on a completely false prospectus with consequences which foreign ministers here are still trying to deal with.”

Blair clearly doesn’t gain much support from his controversial decision to continue to attempt a Brexit Block nearly a year after the June referendum in 2016.

Tech Company Creates A.I. Based Camera Recognition System To Be Used By Police

A stun gun company called Taser has just introduced one of the scariest inventions of our time a body recognition camera that will allow police to search for people and objects in video footage captured in real time and recorded video.

The technology will use automation and algorithms to detect faces and objects in video footage captured by on-body camera systems Vocativ reported.

The development of such advanced technology suggests that body cameras, which are already being worn by police departments across the country, could soon become powerful surveillance tools capable of identifying different objects, events, and people encountered by officers on the street.

While the idea is to use machine learning algorithms to speed up the process of combing through and redacting hours of video footage by allowing police to use keywords to search through video footage. And it’s worth noting that the current version of the technology doesn’t include facial recognition the company has previously stated to Bloomberg that they are working on implementing such Orwellian technology.

“If we think about that situation in Minnesota, maybe that officer did have some preconceptions about Castile, and maybe they were unhelpful preconceptions,” Rick Smith Taser’s chief executive officer said. “If the officer had known that Castile didn’t have a violent police record, as has been reported, his death might have been averted. “The more we can help reduce that uncertainty, the better.”

Such an implementation will be a major privacy risk, especially since there are no known current federal laws preventing police from searching through large databases to track someone’s every movement.

Where it will be good to catch real criminals if laws are not put into place to limit such technologies use to catching kidnappers and terrorist we could quickly be living in a “Strange Days” type of dystopia where the police can scan your every move. And even if there are laws that doesn’t necessarily mean that the people in charge are going to follow them so while this technology may make us “safer” it’s literally building the framework for a police state.

What’s scarier is it’s already starting in New York, the government privately asked surveillance companies to pitch a vast camera system they could install on bridges and tunnels that would scan and identify people who drive in and out of New York City.

Facebook already uses this type of technology with deep face so if you think such a technology is impossible you aren’t paying attention.

[RELATED: Google’s Artificial Intelligence Becoming ‘Human-Like’ With Aggressive, Greedy Behavior]

A Vocativ reporter talked to a Taser representative, and the conversation was mind-blowing, to say the least highlighting how far they want to take this new technology that is incredibly frightening.

“To clarify, Dextro’s system offers computer vision techniques to identify faces and other objects for improving the efficiency of the redaction workflow. AI enables you to become more targeted when needed,” Steve Tuttle, Taser’s vice president of communications, he said.

That means, he explained, that “you can show where a face starts in a video” to speed up a search, but that the technology “doesn’t identify individual faces or people.”

The company claims that its use of AI will be focused on “efficient categorization, semantic understanding, and faster redaction” of video footage as a method of “reducing paper work and enabling officers to focus on what matters.”

“Police officers are spending most of their time entering information into computers” about their interactions in the field, Smith said during the webcast. “We want to automate all of that.”

To further your paranoia, a Department of Justice study published last year found that at least nine different body camera manufacturers either currently support face recognition in their products or plan to add the feature later. To make you even more scared of big brother watching over your shoulder, a recent Georgetown University Law report, found that nearly half of American adults have been entered into their local law enforcement’s face recognition database. Increasing the chance that any random person walking down the street can be identified by the system allowing an unknown cop to track someone in secret in the protection of the excuse “I’m just doing my job” a very scary thought indeed.

For now, if you want to avoid this type of surveillance there is all sorts of technology and clothing that you can buy but there is no telling when this clothing and technology will become obsolete.

Man With Rifle Livestreams Himself Threatening Stranger Over Trump Sticker

A selfie-style video of a man with a rifle threatening a Donald Trump supporter at a gas station over a bumper sticker and “Make America Great Again” flag is going viral after being published to YouTube on Thursday.

The shocking video, obtained by Red Pill Philosophy, shows a man who goes by the name Neal Norles on Facebook, confronting the stranger at a gas station and demanding that he remove the sticker and flag supporting our president — while livestreaming himself making the threats.

“Hold up. Hey boy you voted for Trump?” Norles shouts at the stranger. “You did? Aw yeah that’s how you feel? That’s how you feel, huh?”

“Deport all of us, huh?” Norles continues on to ask. “You want us deported back over there or something?”

The Trump supporter responds saying “no,” and the man asserts that he is going to remove the sticker from the stranger’s vehicle.

“We don’t like that shit! We don’t like that shit! You gotta take that shit off your truck bro!” Norles yells at the man.

“Touch my sh-t and see what happens,” the Trump supporter responds.

The unhinged man, continuing to film himself, then says, “let me show you what’s going to happen,” as he pulls an assault rifle from his vehicle. He begins to walk towards the man he was threatening.

“I’m going to show you what’s going to happen, ain’t nothin’ gonna happen,” the man rages. “This nigga got me f-cked up,” he continues as the video ends with him approaching the flag and the sound of it being ripped down.

Responding to a request for comment from We Are Change, he asserted that I am “crazy as hell,” and claimed that he did not threaten the man.

“Where did I threatened him I protected myself after he said see what will happen if I take it off,” Norles said. “I neva pointed my gun at him nor made a threat to him saying I would kill him? So where?”

We explained to him that we did not say he directly threatened to kill the man, but threatened him and his property — with his gun.

“Yea I threatened his property I will take that but nevva once did I threat his life I don’t see how u get that,” Norles wrote.

When asked what happened after the video ended, Norles asked me if I voted for Trump. I responded yes and asserted that I was not the one being interviewed.

“Do u like black ppl?” Norles asked.

He then refused to continue being interviewed without payment, which we declined to offer. He responded saying, “then suck it easy baby.”

Norles on the right, via Facebook

According to Norles’ Facebook page, he resides in Kansas City, Missouri. He frequently livestreams himself ranting and raving on the social network. At the time of publishing this story — Norles was livestreaming himself screaming “f-ck Donald Trump” at passing vehicles while in the passenger seat of a car. Both that livestream, and the one featuring him brandishing the weapon, have since been deleted from his page.

College Student Suspended After Filming Professor On Rant About Trump’s Election Being “An Act Of Terrorism”

Caleb O’Neil, an Orange Coast College student, has been suspended after filming his professor Olga Perez Stable Cox going on an intangible rant, calling Donald Trump’s election “an act of terrorism”. The College has also demanded that the student write a letter of apology, explaining why he shared the video on YouTube.

The student who recorded Professor Olga Perez "Unstable" Cox last semester has been suspended. This is victim blaming at…

Posted by Orange Coast College Republicans on Wednesday, February 15, 2017

“Our nation is divided. We have been assaulted. It is an act of terrorism,” she told the students during her class.

The video was uploaded on YouTube and has divided the public significantly. The professor has even reportedly received death threats.

Campus Reform released the letter of suspension sent to O’Neil.

“You are suspended for a period of one full primary (fall/spring) semester in addition to summer term,” the statement from the college authorities said.

In the suspension letter, Orange Coast College called on O’Neil to write a “three page double space essay” in apology to Cox.

In the essay, O’Neil should discuss why he videotaped his psychology professor, “knowing that it was a violation of the course syllabus”,  as well as his thoughts and analysis on why he decided “to share this video with others” and what he “thought would happen to the professor”.

O’Neil also received an email from Interim Dean of Students Victoria Lugo, who said that the freshman was charged with “violating the student code of conduct”.

“This is clearly stated in the instructor’s course syllabus in addition to the student code of conduct. When we spoke, you stated that you felt badly about the things that had happened to individuals as a result of this incident. It is my hope that this experience will lead you to truly think through your actions and the consequences of those actions when making decisions in the future,” Lugo wrote.

On Wednesday, O’Neil filed an appeal to the college, according to Orange County Register newspaper.

“I pulled my phone out, because I was honestly scared that I would have repercussions with my grades because she knew I was a Trump supporter,” said O’Neil, 19, who openly supported Trump. “I thought Olga Perez Stable Cox was a good teacher,”

O’Neil’s attorney, Bill Becker has said the suspension is “excessive and discriminatory”, Orange County Register newspaper reported.

Earlier in January, Cox, defended her comments and said that “a woman, as a Latina, as a lesbian, as a refugee,” her speech was aimed to comfort students.

Although if that’s the case Cox may want to watch her own recording because it sounded an awful lot like scaring the students spewing that Trump is a racist which will only cause division amongst the students and could endanger some of the students who are Trump supporters.
