The timing of this event felt auspicious. Just after the latest Brexit delay and the Netanyahu victory. Just after Attorney General Barr’s low-key signal to Congress that yes, he did think the Trump campaign was spied on. These three pop to mind. What else? Feels like this Assange event was staged for maximum effect as a false flag to distract and “change the narrative.” But cui bono?
Not even an hour ago, a new, long Q drop, after only one other (tiny) Q drop (yesterday) in nearly two weeks, and this one, once again claiming, “We have the source.” Meaning Assange. You might search “Assange” on the qmap.pub site. It’s instructive, though I’m not sure how. Clearly, he’s an asset of some kind. Will he be extradited to the U.S. to face trial himself, or to bear witness to others’ crimes? Or will one be disguised as the other? Of course, the idealist in me wants Trump to exonerate him, and to even celebrate his courageous truth-telling. And truly, this is one man who has lived his truth for more years than any of us would like to count, no matter what the cost to his life.
This morning’s arrest, three questions. It was done in the daytime, in full view. To get the press involved as much as possible? Why?
And what’s up with the three hands in the photo that went viral? Is something photoshopped? If so, what?
So far I’ve only seen one comment on twitter asking about the three hands. To me, it’s the weirdest thing about the photo, even weirder than the book he was carrying, its cover in full view, though maybe the three hands weirdness is there to draw attention to the book. Why? To presumably send a message to his supporters?
t didn’t take long for twitterers to figure out it was Gore Vidal on the cover, his book , published in 2014 (Gore himself died in 2012). History of the National Security State.
Here’s vintage Vidal, in the sixth out of seven Real News videos:
For more juicy Vidal quotes see this.
But it was the winking, thumbs-up photo of Assange in the police van on his way to court that took the cake:
Speaking of the National Security State, how’s this for a statistic?
Trump claims to want to stop all the wars while upping military spending.
I wonder what Vidal would say about Trump.
