Ecuador to hand over Assange to UK ‘in coming weeks or days,’ own sources tell RT's editor-in chief

RT | Jul 20, 2018

Ecuador is ready to hand over the WikiLeaks founder to the UK in “coming weeks or even days,” RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said citing her own sources, as prospects of his eviction from the embassy are back in the media.

My sources tell [Julian] Assange will be handed over to Britain in the coming weeks or even days,” Simonyan wrote in a recent tweet which was reposted by WikiLeaks. “Like never before, I wish my sources were wrong,” she continued.
Simonyan's message comes, as speculations Ecuador is in talks with the UK over the future of Assange are back again in British press. Earlier this week, the Times reported Britain is locked in top-tier discussions with the Ecuadorians in a bid to remove Assange from their London embassy.

Sir Alan Duncan, the Foreign Office minister, is said to be spearheading the diplomatic effort.

Sources close to Assange said he himself was not aware of the talks but believed that America was putting “significant pressure” on Ecuador, including threatening to block a loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) if he continues to stay at the embassy.

The Times report comes just weeks before a visit to the UK by the newly-elected Ecuadorian president Lenin Moreno, who has labeled Assange a “hacker”, an “inherited problem” and a “stone in the shoe.”

There have been other worrying signs indicating Assange is steadily becoming a troublemaker for Ecuador. In late March this year, the Ecuadorian government has suspended Assange’s communication privileges with the outside world, cutting off his Internet connection at the embassy.

The move was sparked by Assange’s alleged breach of an agreement to refrain from interfering in other states’ affairs. Previously, he blasted the Spanish government for cracking down on the Catalan independence movement.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012 when he asked the Latin American state for asylum. The 47-year-old was wanted by Sweden on sexual assault allegations, but feared the extradition would lead to him being transferred to the US and prosecuted without a fair trial.

The US has been saying that Assange was “engaged in terrorism,” with Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, last year calling his arrest a “priority.” Over the years, WikiLeaks has published hundreds of thousands of classified US files, including the cables on the Iraq War, leaked by whistleblower Chelsea Manning in 2010.

Despite the Swedish investigation against him being closed in May last year, the Australian journalist was still unable to leave the embassy because of an outstanding British warrant for allegedly breaching bail conditions and no guarantees of him not being sent to the US.

Over the years, the whistleblower has been supported by activists and human rights groups, who demanded he be freed. A UN panel also found that Assange’s stay in the embassy amounted to “arbitrary detention,” but it wasn’t enough to change his fate.

Libtard Time magazine’s ‘creepy’ Putin-Trump cover is what media subversion really looks like

RT | Jul 19, 2018 | Simon Rite

Staring out from the front cover of this week’s ‘Time’ magazine is a striking, unsettling picture of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump morphed into one. The hidden, yet unsubtle messaging behind the image is equally unsettling.

Time describes the image as “meaning to represent this particular moment in US foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland.”  However, what it really represents is the way that a major US media outlet wants its readers to see these two men.  As strange and creepy figures who are in some way linked.
The publication cannot write a story which backs up allegations that the two presidents have some kind of conspiratorial relationship, but it can print an image which insinuates it, demanding your attention and entering your subconscious. If investigators want a textbook example of how the media attempts to subvert and influence, then look no further.

How many other morphed images of world leaders has Time featured on its famed front page?  None. There is no Trerkel, no Macrump not even a Tru Jong-Un. With these leaders there is no conspiracy to sell and no bandwagon on which to jump.

The US is still wrestling with the reality of Trump as president and claims of election interference. The mainstream constantly debates how it was allowed to happen at all, and here Time wants to provide the answer in one unsettling picture. It must have been Putin, the two are so close they could be one person the image suggests, they’re two sides of the same coin.

RT can exclusively reveal that the two do, in fact, have extremely serious connections: they both currently find themselves as the leaders of the two biggest nuclear powers on Earth. That is an incontrovertible fact and, as Trump said in Helsinki, he decided to take a political risk by meeting Putin in an attempt to reduce tensions. In America’s current political climate that is more than enough to get you an insidious Time magazine front page.

The idea is not original. German news magazine ‘Der Spiegel’ did the identical thing last year by morphing the two men on its cover page. The aesthetic was less psycho warfare horror movie, and more Soviet schtick.
Der Spiegel’s headline was at least more transparent in what it was trying to say ‘The double regent: how much Putin is in Trump?

Time’s simple ‘The Summit Crisis’ is short and ambiguous enough that the reader has more time to let the hidden meaning of the image settle in.

Has it worked?  You only have to look on Twitter to see the words people are using to describe the front page: “Creepy,” “nightmare,” “scary” and “chilling.” Time magazine: mission accomplished.

Mystery of Antarctica’s Ice [Video] without Youtube Propaganda Statement

Adapt2030 | Jul 19, 2018

Editor's note: Youtube is now brazenly adding global warming fraud info statements directly beneath the channel of Adapt2030 in an attempt to sway people's mind about their false claim. See here.

Antarctica holds many mysteries, from lost civilizations burried in ice to military bases and everything in between. The ice is a focal point on the continent, both land and sea. New studies are unequivocally showing gains in sea ice and land continental ice thickness and overall coverage. I present to the findings which run contrary to the main stream narrative.

THIS A KEY MOMENT IN WORLD HISTORY: Deep State in Total Panic & Fully Exposed

SGT Report | Jul 17, 2018

Former CIA Director John Brennan and others are "threatening the killing of Donald Trump" when they accuse him of treason, so says our friend Harley Schlanger, "and I think this is a key moment in world history where Americans have to get behind their President and defend him from these people who are trying to put a regime change in Washington."

CRISPR DNA-editing may result in serious genetic damage – study

RT | Jul 17, 2018

Researchers have raised alarm over the king of genome-editing tools, CRISPR, after major DNA deletions were detected during the gene-editing process, suggesting the risk of genetic damage is much greater than previously thought.

CRISPR/Cas9 is one of the newest genome-editing tools and is considered very powerful. It can alter sections of DNA in cells by cutting at specific points and introducing changes at that location.

While the tool is already extensively used in scientific research, it is also poised to become the gene editor of choice in clinical contexts with potential for treating diseases such as HIV, cancer or sickle cell disease.

However, this new study, carried out at the Wellcome Sanger Institute in the UK, suggests the technique is not as safe as previously thought and could lead to dangerous changes in some cells and, potentially, even cause cancer.

"This is the first systematic assessment of unexpected events resulting from CRISPR/Cas9 editing in therapeutically relevant cells, and we found that changes in the DNA have been seriously underestimated before now,” study co-author Professor Allan Bradley said in a statement.

Researchers carried out a full systematic study in both mouse and human cells and discovered that CRISPR/Cas9 frequently caused extensive mutations – but at a great distance from the target site where CRISPR/Cas9 was used to make the edit.

Usually during the cell repair process a few DNA letters get changed at the specific target –  this allows relevant genes to be disabled. However, during these experiments CRISPR caused deletions or rearrangements more than 100 DNA letters long in around a fifth of cells. These mutations happened in some cases several thousand DNA bases away from the target site.

“In the clinical context of editing many billions of cells, the multitude of different mutations generated makes it likely that one or more edited cells in each protocol would be endowed with an important pathogenic lesion,” the study states, adding that this could eventually cause a few of these cells to turn cancerous.

“There’s a risk of causing cancer sometime in a patient’s lifetime,” Bradley told New Scientist. “We need to understand more before rushing into human clinical trials.”

Researchers also warn that standard DNA tests may not be able to detect the genetic damage caused by CRISPR.

The findings, published in the journal Nature Biotechnology, are expected to have implications for how CRISPR/Cas9 is used in a clinical context going forward, and also reignite interest in finding alternatives to the gene-editing tool.
