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.

    A. The NRA overwhelmingly funds Republican candidates.

    B. The NRA professes a fundamentalist belief in the Second Amendment of the American Constitution; such as funding Mario Rubio in Florida who opposed any checks on gun purchases to mentally challenged persons.

    C. If the source of the funding is attacked then the consequences of such funding will also be attacked and hopefully reduced.

    Not rocket science and politically do-able.

    Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard tells a Labour women’s conference in Glasgow that he’s setting up an executive sub-committee to deal with sexism, racism and homophobia in the party. And then boasts that Scottish Labour will lead the way in promoting diversity. How about getting your house in order first before you claim to lead the way?

    Who will Richard appoint to chair his diversity committee?

    Not Hugh Gaffney MP surely.
    Nor Alex Rowley MSP.

    Ex-MP Sir David Hamilton who called Nicola Sturgeon a “wee lassie” to howls of laughter at Scottish Labour’s conference in 2015. How about him? Mmmm. Maybe.

    Councillor Davie McLachlan, Labour leader on South Lanarkshire Council but suspended for allegedly saying a racist remark to Anas Sarwar. A candidate to chair this? Probably not.

    Then there’s Tom McAughtrie who was a Labour councillor for 30 years in Dumfries and Galloway. He’s just been reprimanded by the Scottish Commissioner for Ethics in Public Life. He called LGBT campaigners “deviants”. But apparently he’s left the party, so that rules him out.

    They could parachute in someone from down south. After all it’s done all the time elsewhere in appointments in Scotland.

    How about Jared “sexy little slags” O’Mara MP? Or Clive “on your knees bitch” Lewis MP?

    Well, there’s lots of talent to choose from to make Scottish Labour the leaders in promoting diversity.

    Looks like The US Government, are not only completely out of their depth, they are looking complete and utter morons in Korea. Of course the Americans do the same here in Europe. It seems the Koreans North and South are going to unite, and tell the incredibly embarrassingly stupid Americans to go home, and take their weapons of mass destruction with them.

    We should do the same here in Europe and England. If the Scots want to be their “Best Friends” and join the American Controlled EU.. then that is up to them. I used to think they were clever, cos they used to be clever. They invented The Telly didn’t they? Now produced in Korea who are seriously embarrassing The Americans by being nice to their fellow Koreans, who the Americans seem to think they hate.

      Good comment but it’s a bit of a media over-swing to talk of quick reunification. Certainly Mike Pence was left glowering and brooding like the proverbial spare p****k at a wedding.There is a strong and growing feeling that the US is using South Korea as a forward base for encircling and threatening China rather than defence against an attack from the North.But we have been through this dance before with the Nordpolitik of Kim Dae Jung and Ro Mu Hyon. I am afraid that the Northern Kim clan are looking for a new source of funds now China and Russia are drying up, but will not give up their power in response.

        You are of course right. Sputnik News is well ahead of the curve in comparison with the BBC. Its article, the one you link, gives two arguments. One comes from an unnamed source the reporter chooses to call Sergei (probably a fabrication) and with the other it calls upon the wisdom of neo-fascist Andriy Parubiy. No wonder no thinking person believes an iota of what the BBC puts out as news.

      Tganks for your link to the Dangerous Globe website.
      I found this article concerning Grenfell Tower, A Dirty Job

      “We are obviously concerned about the power surge issue and the fact that, in the 16th July Scrutiny Committee report into the matter, it was stated that there was still confusion as to what precisely caused this issue.

      If you recall, the surges caused significant damage to electrical equipment belonging to many of the residents of Grenfell Tower and caused much upset, alarm, and distress. Thankfully the damage was limited to property, but there are real worries amongst the residents that something more serious could have occurred or indeed could occur in the future.”

      Recording voltages forms part of the regular checks on Electrical Installations. The electrical surges that set many electrical devices on fir prior to the fire, could have been current surges if the overload protection was out of date. For instance a 13 amp fuse will cook rather than blow on a fused spur switch if it is used for an immersion heater. In corporate property out of date overload protection is not usually regarded as a major problem because it would cost too much to replace.

      Far more serious is the fact that over-voltages were recorded at Grenfell Tower, which would imply serious defects in the mains transformers. These would also have been extremely expensive to replace.
      If the enquiry had done what it said it would do, which is to present a preliminary report in a few months highlighting the main causes of the fire, this information should already be made public.

      It is only because corporate negligence is common and frequent, that the powers that be refuse to publicise the main cause of the fire. Basic protection of the electrical installation is out of date in most corporate-owned property. Vast sums of public money are squandered on monitoring terrorism which our own government has
      itself created for fighting illegal proxy wars of aggression as part of modern colonialism, which we call eating your own vomit. Nothing is spent on the hidden infrastructure in locked cupboards in public buildings.

      When Labour lost the 2010 Election, Mrs Cox followed her political dream – eventually being elected MP in 2015. Mr Forsyth became Save The Children’s chief executive and Mr Cox went with him as director of policy, including responsibility for the ’empowerment of women.’

    Ruth Davidson appears on Peston and gets a totally free pass. Spends the first half of the interview talking about Oxfam and British overseas aid. The it moves on to Brexit and its all garbage spin about how the Tories are securing a great deal and how she’s sorted Scotland’s concerns with May. Absolute garbage. Just Davidson pretending to be the Tory leader in waiting while Scotland’s people get bullied into a major change for the worse we voted against.

    No questions about the Tory Brexit report’s dire assessment for the Scottish economy. Nothing at all about an independence referendum. The metropolitan media are pathetic. They’ve decided en masse that if they don’t mention a second independence referendum then it simply won’t materialise.

    No one else from Scotland invited on the show to air contrary views to Davidson’s.

    The Tory councillor Richard Nelson who is in a senior position in the Orange Order in Scotland has got quite a CV. As well as being the South Lanarkshire Council Tory group’s business manager he is a comedy hypnotist, a clown for hire at childrens parties who does magic tricks, a rehabilitation instructor at a high security state psychiatric hospital, a branch officer of the Scottish Prison Officers Association, a DJ and a President of the Apprentice Boys of Derry in Scotland. You couldn’t make it up.

    Well he’s certainly not lazy. But are more traditional Scots Tories happy that people who are senior in the Apprentice Boys of Derry or other OO groups are also representing their party at a fairly senior level?

    It’s interesting to watch the media, smear Corbyn on just about anything they can find, not that I care about Labour I don’t, they’re part of the problem in Scotland.

    However watching Peston and his flunkies, attempt to smear Corbyn over Venezuela, Russia and some loose assertion on spying whilst aiming it at Thornberry, brought back memories of the constant smear attempts by the media of Sturgeon and Salmond.

    When the British propaganda machine gets its sights set on demeaning and smearing someone, you can be sure it’s in defence of the status quo.

    Where’s Mundell? He was supposed to be on a trade mission to Hong Kong and Japan during the Commons February recess. There’s been no coverage of his Far Eastern trip in the media. He’s not tweeted since he left
    We reckoned he was avoiding being questioned about the Brexit report. But there’s probably more to it.

    We know of the Tory plans for a Scottish Office HQ in Leith and an exponential rise in staff to go with the Tory Tudor powers and devo powers grabs. Why is he so incommunicado? What’s he up to? Normally politicians’ trade trips get loads of media coverage. Their party machine makes sure of it. But there’s been nothing for Mundell’s tour. What is going on?

        Firstly Brexit will not save jobs just about every impact assessment has shown it will cost thousands of jobs.

    ‘Moscow on Saturday dismissed as “blabber” and “fantasies” allegations that it interfered in the election that brought President Donald Trump to power, denials that drew immediate scorn from U.S. officials.
    The traded barbs, made at the Munich Security Conference, came a day after the United States indicted 13 Russians for running a secret campaign to sway the 2016 vote.
    “I am amazed that… the Russians come, send someone every year to basically refute the facts,” US Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said.
    Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Munich attendees about the U.S. charges: “So as long as we don’t see facts, everything else is blabber……….”

    ‘Moscow calls on US not to play with fire in Syria’:

    ‘…“In the areas supervised by the US – east of the Euphrates and all the way to Syria’s state borders – they create authorities in such a way that they have no ties with Damascus providing them with assistance in various forms. All that can be a very serious problem from the point of view of compliance with the UN Security Council’s demands on ensuring Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
    US lets militants regain strength in American influence area
    Russia’s top diplomat drew attention to the al-Tanf US zone of influence created due to the United States’ unilateral and destructive steps. “The unilateral steps made by the United States, which declared the 55-kilometer area near al-Tanf its zone of influence is something we did not agree on,” Lavrov said….’

    The true motives and designs of the US and it’s crony ‘Coalition’ War Criminals and proxy headchoppers in Syria has been clear all along for the unblinkered.

    Of relevance too is: ‘The US is Executing a Global War Plan’:
    As the ‘Project for a New American Century’ document called for in 2000, the US must be capable of carrying out multiple major wars simultaneously. Yet STILL our MSM won’t report the truth.
    We shall wake up one morning (or not if it goes heavyweight nukes) and find ourselves in conflict with Russia and/or China and North Korea. And, of course, the blame will be laid at their door, instead of where it clearly belongs.

    So any form of Brexit for farmers that doesn’t emulate the status quo, will be disastrous for the farming community.

    Yet unbelievably the majority of farmers (in Scotland anyway) voted no to independence (to stay in the UK and the EU) and to leave the EU.

    Now impact assessments show that they’ll be hit hard by any Brexit that doesn’t mimic the current set up. I just can’t understand the mentality of these people, it’s akin to turkeys voting for Christmas.
