Assange Judge’s Husband Runs Security Firm With Ex Head of MI6 1235


“Security Intelligence Consultancy” SC Strategy Ltd has only three directors. One is the husband of the judge in yesterday’s Assange ruling. One is the former Head of MI6, Sir John Scarlett, who is synonymous with crooked security operations and personally wrote the notorious dossier of lies on Iraqi WMD, thus causing the subsequent deaths of millions of people. One is Lord Carlile, who was notably close to protected Establishment paedophiles Greville Janner and Cyril Smith. Is the British Establishment not endlessly fascinating?

The corporate media has published no information about “Lady” Arbuthnot’s background and sinister links at all, despite the fact it is uniformly carrying her jibes at Assange as a major story. There can be no clearer example of the fact that it is the corporate media which, deliberately and systematically, spreads fake news, while bloggers get out the actual facts via social media.

To anyone to whom British corruption is not axiomatic, it appears pretty rum that the judge in the Assange case is married to a government parliamentarian and close to the security services.

“Lady” Arbuthnot’s Husband

There is some interesting background in the Mirror here. The taxpayer paid £1,200 in restaurant bills for “Lady” Arbuthnot and her husband in one long weekend jaunt to Turkey alone.

If anybody thinks the Assange case had anything to do with justice, they are very mistaken. Please read my analysis of “Lady” Arbuthnot’s judgement here.

    I don’t know how much damage microwaves do, but I do know that a microwave oven isn’t the strongest source of them that most people are exposed to. Have you got a mobile phone, Tony? Consider Newton’s inverse square law as you press that microwave transmitter to the side of your head.

    The microwave radiation transmitted from your phone needs to be strong enough to reach a mast, let’s say one kilometre away. Radiation is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source – half the distance, four times as strong; quarter the distance, sixteen times as strong. How thick is your skull, Tony? One centimetre? Then the phone is 100,000 times nearer to your brain than it is to the mast, so square that and the microwaves bathing your brain are ten billion times stronger than those received by the mast.

    Now admitedly a microwave emits stronger radiation than a phone, but you don’t press your face against it several times a day for long periods. If you simply must have a mobile phone, go handsfree and don’t keep it in a pocket next to your gonads.

          An analogy which may give you food for thought:
          Consider visible light, from a less energetic band of the electromagnetic spectrum. Imagine seeing a torch from one kilometere distance, then shining it into your eye from 1 cm away. The light would be ten billion times brighter and would destroy your retina.

    Meanwhile the state brosdcasters BBC politics show is in full propaganda mode. First Gordon Brewer, give Colonel Ruth Rape Clause Davidson a free hand to oppose independence, then the lickspittle Brewer, ask her a few very soft questions on Brexit.

    However Brewer was in his glory trying to blame the SNP and in particular Humza Yousef for Besst from the East bringing Scotland to a halt.

    It was a Red Alert weather warning the first since records began.

    Of course it brought the rUK to a complete standstill, but hey Brewer can’t blame the SNP for that, yet. What p*ick Brewer is.

    This is typical of the foreign owned BBC, roll on indy.

      “It was a Red Alert weather warning the first since records began.”

      You mean the first since the NSWWS introduced the impacts based traffic light warning service system in 2013.

      The very fact they have Red warnings shows they expect them to happen so a competent government should prepare for them.

      Fortunately essential services were able to bypass the muppets at Holyrood and call in someone they could rely on.

        So was the rUK prepared?

        I don’t recall the media berating May over the weather from Siberia bringing chaos. Europe as well, was caught out albeit, the Scandanavians were prepared as usual.

        I don’t recall reading Merkel or Macron being blamed for way they handled the bad weather.

          In England the had to close the M62, the route across the Pennines, but they emptied it before they closed it, they didn’t leave people sitting in their cars in sub zero temperatures all night like they did on the M80.

          Theresa may went on twitter to thank the people who kept Britain moving not to try and blame everything on lorry drivers.

            So where did I say the M62 was the only road which had to be closed?

            My point was, as I’m sure you must have realised, that after closing the M62 they emptied the M62, took the vehicles off in convoys behind snow ploughs. In Glasgow on the M80 people were left in their cars for nine hours.

            You are behaving very much like one of the Nationalist cult members who see any criticism of the SNP as a criticism of themselves. Criticise the hell out of them and they will spend less on their pet Nationalist projects and more on preparing for extreme weather. Nobody knows the Gaelic for “Road Closed Snow” anyway.

            Fred : In Glasgow on the M80 people were left in their cars for nine hours.

            3 days ago, a friend of mine was stuck for 9 hours on a snow blocked road between London and Dorset. You wouldn’t know about this because Theresa didn’t mention it on Twitter.

            Then your friend should be criticising the authorities in England and if anyone tries to excuse it by saying it was the worst snow since records began or that he is part of a conspiracy by the foreign owned media he should speak out and put them right.

            Then your friend should be criticising the authorities in England …

            No, as I told you before, I think it is ridiculous to expect authorities to spend billions insuring against a once in a decade inconvenience. If you lived in non-SNP controlled Dorset where you would be free to have sensible opinions, would you rather they spent the money on schools, hospitals and other constantly used services, or on a fleet of moth-balled snowploughs that get used once in a blue moon?

          • Republicofscotland

            You bitch about the SNP/weather now you’re going on about Gaelic road signs, which if I’m correct were initiated by the Scottish branch offices of Lab/LibDem, whilst in government in Holyrood in 2003.

            Bilingual roadsigns weren’t instigated by the SNP as part of its dastardly obsession with inculcating separatism, but by the first Labour/Lib Dem administration in 2003 in the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act, which set out “the status of the Gaelic language as an official language of Scotland commanding equal respect to the English language”.

            It was passed by the second Labour/Lib Dem government in 2005, and subsequently enthusiastically backed by many of Carlaw’s Tory colleagues.

            But then that doesn’t count in the eyes of a zealous Britnat, does it now?

            My friend left his car at his brother’s home in Dorset while he travelled in Thailand. His brother collected him from Heathrow and they got stuck in snow on the way back. He emailed me from a snowdrift looking for sympathy. I replied “Karma” in reference to a photo he’d sent from a beach when the snow first hit the UK. I don’t know which road. Probably one of these :

            Now how about answering my question : “You live in the south of England … hospitals or snowploughs?”

    • fred

      But I don’t live in the south of England, I live in the north of Scotland where I think both hospitals and snow ploughs are important and if we have reached a point where I have to choose one or the other then my government has failed.

      Normally when people claim something is “real history”, it means junk history. And in the case of Peter Kuznick, and his collaborator Oliver Stone, it is just that.

        • Anon1

          I would start by challenging him on his ridiculous belief that Truman’s tough stance on the USSR was brought about by his being called a “sissy” at school.

          Truman’s tough stance on the USSR was brought about by its aggressive expansionist polices immediately following WW2, as documented in Anne Applebaum’s Pullitzer Prize-winning “The Iron Curtain – The Crushing of Eastern Europe: 1944-1956”.

          But then Anne Applebaum does original research, not junk history line Kuznick and Stone.

            maybe applebaum should have researched the fact russia had been invaded twice in a generation by germany through e europe – most recently at a cost of 28 million russian dead.

        However, yes, the Japanese did not want to be beaten by the Russians, the Yanks certainly did not want Russia to control Japan after the war, and they knew the Russians would be able to get to Japan with sufficient forces to take it. So to kill several birds with two Nukes: they got the Japanese to surrender (which they would have done anyway, as long as the Emperor was not imprisoned or tried for War Crimes – and indeed that arrangement was granted even after the bombing), they beat the Russians to Japan, and they showed the power of the atom bomb to Russia, in order to warn them against expansionism. They also got to test the effects of radiation on millions of people.
        Incidentally, our ‘beloved’ Winston Churchill had urged the US to nuke Russia at the end of the war, but luckily the US refrained.

    Craig, is there anything you can add to the report about the British diplomat in the US, Benjamin Norman, with regards to a leaked British diplomatic telegram? The document describes tactics and strategy towards damaging Syrian and Russian aspirations in the region and seems plausible. With your knowledge of how things work in in the diplomatic world, could this leak be authentic?

    • giyane

      http://www.syrianews.cc/rotten-diplomatic-meeting-launched-un-frenzy-syria/

      We are not allowed to discuss USUKIS intentions for establishing a Greater Israel in part of Syria.
      This article makes clear that USUKIS reject Syrian deliberations on Syria at Sochi. They want to spin out the war and place Israeli peace-keeping troops as an outcome of re-vamped Geneva talks. Benjamin Norman and Donald Trump are united in the opinion that this stupid war has been lost by USUKIS and the sooner they admit it the better. Using Al Qaida and Daesh was thought up by failed US general Betrayus and London doesn’t want to lap up US vomit for them. We have moved out from under the blanket of US-EU co-operation and will form new alliances with China and Russia after Brexit. The dogs of war must eat their own.

      • duplicitousdemocracy

        US and UK interests just so happen to coincide with Israeli policy on the fracturing and weakening of Syria, who would have thought it? Giyane, you would appear to believe the conflict is all but over and I hope you are right but the levels that the three amigos mentioned above will sink to knows no bounds. Moreover, Benjamin Norman appears to have gone silent on the twitter account he had previously been prolific on. Again, I hope this is a sign that the diplomatic telegram has started a catastrophic meltdown for this odious warmonger that has been beating the drum for war from his (previously) safe office in Washington. These people think they live in a cocoon that will be forever safe and perhaps it is currently. But that isn’t guaranteed to last forever and if traitors like Benjamin Norman can’t see beyond their safe houses, maybe they aren’t as clever as they think they are.

    ‘…Over the past five days, only two children have managed to escape the terrorist-held Damascus suburb, despite the introduction of daily humanitarian pauses, according to the Russian military.
    Terrorists who control Eastern Ghouta have imposed a curfew during humanitarian pauses and banned civilians from gathering in order to prevent them from leaving the area through the humanitarian corridor, Russian Major-General Vladimir Zolotukhin stated on Sunday.
    “The civilians who violate the militants’ rules are subjected to public punishment,” he pointed out.
    The Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Syrian reconciliation also said that the militants in East Ghouta shelled a medical aid post close to a checkpoint near the settlement of Er-Rikhan. The shelling, however, resulted in no casualties, the center added.
    Meanwhile, the Syrian army said it continued to secure the humanitarian corridor for civilians, adding that militants tried to use residents as human shields. The state-run news agency SANA also reported citing anonymous sources that the government troops had advanced “on several fronts,” liberating several villages and farms in the area.
    The situation around the humanitarian corridor in East Ghouta has been tense recently, with militants who entrenched themselves in the area constantly violating the truce and preventing civilians from escaping the besieged suburb. The militants also shell Damascus from East Ghouta regularly, causing damage to buildings and injuring civilians…..’

    Now is that news we ought to be told, or is it not? Not according to our ‘free, honest’ presstitutes. Why? Because it goes against the demonisation of Assad and Putin.
    They cannot say they haven’t heard the news, because it has been ought on Reuters and a brief report in the Jerusalem Post.
    And why haven’t those dashing Daesh PR people, the ‘White Helmets’, told them? And the one-man band in Coventry or wherever who runs the MI5 outfit the Syrian Observatory or whatever it’s called been blasting out the news?

    However, I think it highly unlikely, that any of the people who have posted on Craig Murray’s blog, over the last 10 years, or so, are actually being paid by the Intelligence Services (like GCHQ in Cheltenham or The CIA in Langley)

    I think those who can’t for example get 2 planes knocking down 3 buildings in New York , are simply victims, of extremely intensive American Propaganda, served up to them on a daily basis. I find it extremely difficult to believe, that either The US or UK government, are paying any of these people any money, to write such crap here. Mossad maybe – I have come across that lot, years before I started posting here, but even then, they were pretty obvious.. (What’s the rate?)

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/eastern-ghouta-latest-syria-army-advance-rebel-district-civilians-deaths-a8237411.html
    So I socked it to ’em:
    ‘..Very few of the 400,000 people thought to live in the area of farms and towns have been able to use the humanitarian corridors set up on Monday. The routes have been routinely shelled, with President Bashar al Assad’s forces and rebel factions blaming each other for the violence….’ Ah, when there is a CW attack, immediately it is blamed on Assad,  though it would make no sense at all for him to use them. Cui bono?
    Why on earth would Assad shell a humanitarian route arranged by Russia? And why on earth shoul Assad not wish civilians to get out to safety?
    A little bit of common sense wouldn’t go amiss here.
    HERE is the reason people have been unable to flee through the hamanitariancorridors:  https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201803041062206267-militants-e-ghouta-curfew/
    Instead of the weasel worded BS ‘both sides blame each other’, is it not possible for observers to see what direction the shells are coming from? Of course it is, but that would give the lie to the headchoppers being ‘Moderate Rbels’.
    The headchoppers know their a** is grass if they don’t keep the civilians as human shields and hostages, and everybody knows it.
    Again, it is highly likely that chlorine gas was used, but obviously by the ‘headchoppers’:
    ‘…and also promised a “firm response” if international investigators determine chlorine gas was used in a bombing on Sunday that killed two children and hospitalised 18 other people…’ A firm response against who? Their proxy Jihadists?
    ‘Breaking: 3 trucks loaded with ‘tons’ of chlorine enter Syria’s Idlib from Turkey – reports’:
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/eastern-ghouta-latest-syria-army-advance-rebel-district-civilians-deaths-a8237411.html
    ‘White Helmets Ready for ‘False-Flag’ Chemical Attack in Syria – Report’:
    https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201802201061828547-white-helmets-chemical-attack-syria/
    Why is it not reported that it is the headchoppers who are stopping people getting out?
    I’m sure the Russians would be more than happy to have a Western Reporter go to the evacuation point, and see for themselves.
    And you quote some woman who said they are afraid of retribution if they cross into Government held territory? Honestly, how much sense does that make?
    Where were the Western reporters after Aleppo was liberated? They lost interest – they didn’t go to interview the survivors, to get their harrowing tales of the blood-bath everyone was predicting – or that the survivors were blessing Assad and the Russian and dancing in the streets.
    By lying and promoting the demonisation of Assad and Russia, our MSM are complicit in the terrible death, destruction and refugee problem that has been deliberately unleashed upon Syria by the West and it’s cronies and proxies.

      Paul Barbara,

      Hopefully, most of the war in Syria will soon be over

      “Russian Army in Damascus” by Thierry Meyssan

      http://www.voltairenet.org/article199874.html

      And so far as

      “By lying and promoting the demonisation of Assad and Russia, our MSM are complicit in the terrible death, destruction and refugee problem that has been deliberately unleashed upon Syria by the West and it’s cronies and proxies.”

      I personally think these lying scumbags should stand trial, on the charge “War Crimes against Humanity”

      One of the worst, currently is the man who put a bounty on Tony Blair’s Head..

      “Why I’ll be rewarding the latest attempt to make a citizen’s arrest on Tony Blair ”

      https://www.theguardian.com/politics/shortcuts/2014/jan/21/reward-attempt-citizens-arrest-tony-blair

      So what has happenned to George Monbiot since then? I always thought he was a nice bloke, though I often disgreed with him…

      Now it seems, he has turned to The Dark Side, though it is entirely possible he has been brainwashed, and he doesn’t understand, what he is writing, and the implications re promoting even more war and sufferring in Syria…

      I quote in evidence this..

      “https://off-guardian.org/2017/11/24/syria-experts-and-george-monbiot/”

      I can’t believe, that I nearly met this man at a Festival in Wales. He invited me.

      I would like to think, he is either completely brainwashed or incredibly stupid.

      I wouldn’t like to think, he knows what he is doing, and he is just plain evil, though I can’t rule out the possibility.

      Tony

    ‘UN to deliver aid to Syria’s Eastern Ghouta as campaign continues’:
    https://www.alaraby.co.uk/english/news/2018/3/4/un-to-deliver-aid-to-syrias-eastern-ghouta
    It’s a London based media outlet, ‘The New Arab’: ‘Al-Araby Al-Jadeed’:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Araby_Al-Jadeed

    ‘…On Saturday, the UN passed a Syria-wide 30-day ceasefire, but violence has continued.
    Meanwhile, Russia has instead called for a five-hour daily “truce” to allow residents to evacuate Eastern Ghouta and for aid to be delivered.
    On Thursday, the US State Department called Russia’s humanitarian plan a “joke,” saying that residents did not trust the Russian truce plan.
    No civilians have left, nor have any aid convoys been delivered to the area despite the Russian announcement.
    While the air campaign has eased slightly, fighting on the ground only intensified. Neither the UN Security Council resolution calling for a 30-day ceasefire, nor the Russian-imposed five-hour “humanitarian pause” have done much to improve the situation in the rebel-held region east of Damascus.
    World leaders have expressed “grave concern” about the humanitarian situation. In a conversation with the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, the French President Emmanuel Macron said, “The UN convoys must immediately deliver medical assistance and food aid to the besieged population.”
    Macron also called on his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani to put the “necessary pressure” on the Syrian regime to halt “indiscriminate” attacks on civilians in Eastern Ghouta.
    The UN’s regional humanitarian coordinator for Syria, Panos Moumtzis, also sounded the alarm on Sunday over the increase in violence.
    “Instead of a much-needed reprieve, we continue to see more fighting, more death, and more disturbing reports of hunger and hospitals being bombed,” he said.
    “This collective punishment of civilians is simply unacceptable.”
    Eastern Ghouta has been under a devastating regime siege since 2013, leading to chronic food and medicine shortages which have brought its 400,000 residents to the brink of starvation…..’

    What absolute a**holes these Yanks are (not Joe Public, just the ‘Officials’):
    ‘..On Thursday, the US State Department called Russia’s humanitarian plan a “joke,” saying that residents did not trust the Russian truce plan…’.
    They know damn well why viritually no one has escaped, because their proxies are shelling the crossing-point, and threatening anyone trying to leave, just as they did in Aleppo.
    I hope the Russians or Syrians check the contents of these ‘UN Humanitarian’ relief trucks.

    The nationalist right wing is in ascendancy in Italy. Salvini, Berlusconi, et al. There will be a coalition with Five Star (sounds like a pop group. not) and Salvini’s Lega Nord. What! No Mussolini?

    Italy Election Gives Big Lift to Far Right and Populists
    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/04/world/europe/italy-election.html

    ‘Taken together, the votes cast for the Five Star Movement, the League and its post-fascist coalition partner, the Brothers of Italy party, run by Giorgia Meloni, depicted a dark mood in Italy and deep frustration with the governing, pro-Europe, Democratic Party of the center left.

    The Democratic Party suffered its poorest showing ever in national elections, continuing a Europe-wide collapse of the left, and putting into immediate question the future of its once-promising leader, former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

    One glimmer of hope for Mr. Renzi is the possibility of forming a grand coalition with Mr. Berlusconi’s center-right Forza Italia party. But even together they lacked the numbers to form a government.’

    Oh well the Britnats will be disappointed that Dunkirk only won a few Oscars for technical achievement, sound, film editing etc and not for Best Picture.

    They should keep ploughing on though. The world will eventually have to give in and accept that the conveyor belt of films about Winston Churchill and Queen Victoria are the highest cultural expressions humankind can produce.

    For now though the Yanks didn’t dig Dunkirk. It probably wasn’t violent enough for them.

    SG Cabinet Secretary Keith Brown is reported to be about to put his name forward for the SNP deputy leadership contest.

    Colonel Davidson wouldn’t like it if the Falklands Conflict veteran was put into the spotlight. Showing her up and all that. Just because he’s been in an actual shooting war. She once sprained an ankle whilst defending our freedom on a TA exercise don’t you know?

    Your Colonel is the preeminent military hero of Scottish politics. Gotta stay that way, despite this upstart Royal Marine guy. Where’s me bad ass tank?

    Terrible news today regarding British sports. Poor ‘Sir’ Wiggins accused of performance enhancing drugs and ‘Lord’ Coe accused of misleading parliament regarding Russian doping. Some saying its only the tip of the iceberg.

    Its also disappointing (and no doubt an unfortunate coincidence) to witness a real drop off in the meddle table rankings for Team GB at major sporting events since the 2016 WADA leaks. A lot of British athletes suddenly seem to have lost their ‘edge’ against the competition. Maybe Mo and Radcliffe can have a word?

    So it looks like a second Scottish referendum will be on the cards before the UK exits the EU, in 2019.

    A pro-EU and Scottish indy think tank has warned that after we exit the EU, Westminster won’t allow EU nationals a vote on Scottish independence, ergo it’s imperative that indyref 2 be held prior to the UK exiting the EU.

    After the disgraceful way in which the British government treated, as they like to call them “Johnny Foreigner” and still do, EU nationals votes will be important to the Scottish government during the up and coming dissolving of this union.
