ITCCS Update with Kevin Annett re: Pope Francis, Russia, China and Progress in Genocide Cases [video]

In this video, Kevin does a superb job of tying together many aspects of the global war against tyranny, and linking many countries in the financial scheme, the power-block and the genocide/child rape/child trafficking across multiple continents involving the Vatican, the British Monarchy, Latin America and Canada.

If the above are new issues for you, I highly recommend this short video interview with Canada’s Rev. Kevin Annett and Alfred Lambremont Webre.

This is also a valuable update and some positive news for those who have been following the ITCCS activities for some time and their initiatives in Common Law Courts despite recent strikes against members.

Bankster Update: Banksters Recently Arrested, Soon to Be, or Gunned Down [videos]

Thanks to Idaho Picker! (Logic Before Authority channel)  Woo-hoo!  What goes around comes around, and he says in the coming weeks there will be many more.

Now is not a good time to be a banker. We saw a rash of jumpers last summer and I wouldn’t be surprised to see another slew of those as I doubt if they’ll like the alternative.

Kim Dotcom Wants To Encrypt Half of the Internet To End Government Surveillance (Full RT Interview)

Interesting interview with some good points about Big Brother and the U.S. government. I wasn’t aware of this fellow before but thank you to Kim Dotcom for taking the cabal to task and fighting for for the privacy rights of people globally.

In an in-depth interview, Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom discusses the investigation against his now-defunct file-storage site, his possible extradition to the US, the future of Internet freedoms and his latest project Mega with RT’s Andrew Blake.

Screen Shot 2013-01-25 at 2.02.41 PM(RT) The United States government says that Dotcom, a German millionaire formerly known as Kim Schmitz, masterminded a vast criminal conspiracy by operating the file-storage site Megaupload. Dotcom, on the other hand, begs to differ. One year after the high-profile raid of his home and the shut-down and seizure of one of the most popular sites on the Web, Dotcom hosted a launch party for his latest endeavor, simply called Mega. On the anniversary of the end of Megaupload, Dotcom discusses the year since his arrest and what the future holds in regards to both his court case and the Internet alike. Speaking with RT’s Andrew Blake from his Coatesville, New Zealand mansion, Dotcom weighs in on the US justice system, the death of Aaron Swartz, the growing surveillance state, his own cooperation with the feds and much more.

‘­Hollywood is a very important contributor to Obama’

RT: You’ve blamed President Obama and the Obama administration for colluding with movie companies in order to orchestrate this giant arrest here in New Zealand. Is this kind of give-and-take relationship between Washington and Hollywood all that you say it is? Or are you just the exception? Does this really exist?

Kim Dotcom: You have to look at the players behind this case, okay? The driving force, of course, is Chris Dodd, the chairman of the MPAA [Motion Picture Association of America]. And he was senator for a long time and he is — according to [US Vice President] Joe Biden — Joe Biden’s best friend. And the state attorney that is in charge of this case has been Joe Biden’s personal counsel, Neil MacBride, and [he] also worked as an anti-piracy manager for the BSA, the Business Software Association, which is basically like the MPAA but for software companies.

And also, the timing is very interesting, you know? Election time. The fundraisers in Hollywood set for February, March [and] April. There had to have some sort of Plan B, an alternative for SOPA [the Stop Online Piracy Act], because the president certainly was aware — and his team at the White House was aware — that if they don’t have anything to give at those fundraisers, to those guys in Hollywood who are eager to have more control over the Internet, they wouldn’t have probably raised too much. And Hollywood is a very important contributor to Obama’s campaign. Not just with money, but also with media support. They control a lot of media: celebrity endorsements and all that.

So I’m sure the election plays an important role. The relationships of the people that are in charge of this case play an important role and, of course, we have facts that we want to present at our extradition hearing that will show some more detail about this and that this is not just some conspiracy theory but that this actually happened.

‘Operation Takedown’

RT: The US Justice Department wants to extradite you, a German citizen living in New Zealand operating a business in Hong Kong. They want to extradite you to the US. Is that even possible?

KD: That is a very interesting question because the extradition law, the extradition treaty in New Zealand, doesn’t really allow extradition for copyright. So what they did, they threw some extra charges on top and one of them is racketeering, where they basically say we are a mafia organization and we set up our Internet business to basically be an organized crime network that was set up and structured the way it was just to do criminal copyright infringement. And anyone who has ever used Megaupload and has any idea about how that website worked knows immediately that it was total nonsense. But they needed to chop that on in order to have even a chance for extradition. But in our opinion, you see, all of that was secondary. The primary goal was to take down Megaupload and destroy it completely. That was their mission and that’s why the whole thing in Hong Kong, for example, they called it Operation Takedown. And I think everything that’s happening now, they are trying on the fly to doctor it around, and found a way to find a case. They probably came here and thought“We will find something; that these guys have done something wrong.” In the indictment, if you actually read that, it’s more like a press release. There’s nothing in there that has any merits.

RT: When the raid happened one year ago today, it got a lot of people talking both about the Internet and about this character, Kim Dotcom. But it was a lot of talking and not so much action, because here it is one year later and this case is still happening. Back up earlier this month, and we saw Aaron Swartz — an online information activist — pass away, and only in his mid-20s. And it got a lot of people talking, so much so that members of Congress have actually asked for changes to federal computer laws so that this doesn’t happen again. What is it actually going to take to get people to stop just talking and to actually start acting?

KD: Our case is going to be the one that will have much more attention down the road because it is a crucial case for Internet freedom. And I think more and more people realize that and the government is quite exposed here because they really went in with completely prosecutorial abuse and overreach and ignoring due process, ignoring our rightsspying on usillegal search warrants, illegal restraining orders, illegal spying. The whole picture, when you look at it, shows that this was an urgent mission, done on a rush. “Take them down, I want them to go.” And it was a political decision to do that. And the execution was extremely poor, and the case is extremely poor, because that is something they thought that they could worry about later. It was all about the takedown. “Let’s send a strong message to Hollywood that we are on their side.”

RT:And now it’s been a year and nothing has progressed. At least for them. It seems like the case is falling apart day by day.

KD: Let me give you one example of how crazy this is. We have a judge here who said, “Please show us your evidence about your racketeering allegations. Show us that these guys were setting up some sort of organized crime network,” because that’s what the extradition will focus on primarily. They are using the organized crime treaty to get us extradited. So the US appealed that and said, “We don’t want to show you what we have.” And then they appealed to the high court and the high court then said, “We want to see it.” And they just keep appealing it, all the way to the court of appeals and to the Supreme Court. And what does that tell you? If you don’t even want to show us your cards — show us what you have! If you have such a strong case and are seriously interested about getting someone extradited, why waste all this time? Just show your hand. And they don’t have anything because we haven’t done anything wrong. We were law abiding. We were a good corporate citizen. And they knew that the time they came here to do this. They just wanted to take us down.

‘I want to reestablish a balance between a person and the state’

RT :The new program, Mega, is fully encrypted, and you’re touting it as an encrypted program so that people will want to use it. Do you think this is even necessary, right now, that people need encryption on the Internet?

KD: I think it’s important for the Internet that there is more encryption. Because what I have learned since I got dragged into this case is a lot about privacy abuses, about the government spying on people. You know, the US government invests a lot of money in spy clouds: massive data centers with hundreds of thousands of hard drives storing data. And what they are storing is basically any communication that traverses through US networks. And what that means they are not spying on individuals based on a warrant anymore. They just spy on everybody, permanently, all the time. And what that means for you and for anybody is that if you are ever a target of any kind of investigation, or someone has a political agenda against you, or a prosecutor doesn’t like you, or the police wants to interpret something in a way to get you in trouble — they can use all that data, go through it with a comb and find things even though we think we have nothing to hide and have done nothing wrong. They will find something that they can nail you with and that’s why it’s wrong to have these kinds of privacy abuses, and I decided to create a solution that overtime will encrypt more and more of the internet. So we start with files, we will then move to emails, and then move to Voice-Over-IP communication. And our API [Application Programming Interface] is available to any third-party developer to also create their own tools. And my goal is, within the next five years, I want to encrypt half of the Internet. Just reestablish a balance between a person — an individual — and the state. Because right now, we are living very close to this vision of George Orwell and I think it’s not the right way. It’s the wrong path that the government is on, thinking that they can spy on everybody.

Gary McKinnon and the ‘Solar Warden’ Secret Space Program

If your brain is in overdrive trying to recall why the name Gary McKinnon is triggering an inaccessible file, Gary is the Brit who inadvertently hacked U.S. government computers while looking for UFO information.

All things happen for a reason, and having a distant family member with Asperger’s syndrome enables me to sympathize with this fellow and his family. I am relieved to know he will not be extradited to the States, although any crime he MAY have committed (I say, looks good on the Pentagon for keeping secrets from the People) would soon be forgiven when the new representatives step in to replace the Cabal.

At any rate, I think you’ll be intrigued to learn more about what Gary unearthed in his leisurely strolls through the classified files of the U.S. Government without Cosmic clearance. You’ll see why it was hidden from us, and that it involves the collusion of many countries, including Canda.

Home Secretary Theresa May has announced that Gary McKinnon, who was accused of hacking into the Pentagon’s computer network, will not be extradited to the US. The move is due to the risk of McKinnon ending his own life.

McKinnon, 46, suffers from Asperger’s syndrome. If convicted in the US, he could face up to 60 years in jail.

Gary Mckinnon 150x150 Gary McKinnon and the Solar Warden secret program

McKinnon was arrested in March 2002 for allegedly hacking into dozens of NASA and Pentagon computers. He has admitted the security breaches but said they were unintentional and that he was looking for evidence of UFOs.

And Gary found what he was looking for? According to McKinnon, he claimed to have found photographs, film, and other evidence of alien spacecraft secretly held by various U.S. government agencies.

McKinnon first hacked into NASA’s Johnson Space Center: He found a high definition picture of a large cigar shaped object over the northern hemisphere.

McKinnon later hacked into classified files of U.S. Space Command (incorporated into Strategic Command on October 1, 2002).

He found a list of officers’ names.. under the heading ‘Non-Terrestrial Officers’. Gary: “What I think it means is not Earth-based. I found a list of ‘fleet-to-fleet transfers’, and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren’t US Navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet.”

Gary Mckinnon sloar warden 150x150 Gary McKinnon and the Solar Warden secret program

McKinnon had found evidence of the highly compartmentalized program called under the military code word ‘Solar Warden’? A highly classified and secret fleet that operate in outer space, using antigravity technology.

McKinnon statements are similar to a note (June 11, 1985 – page 334) in the diary of former President Reagan:

Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.

A Space Shuttle held a maximum of eight people and only five were built for space flight. Was Reagan revealing the existence of a highly classified space program ‘Solar Warden’ that could accommodate hundreds of astronauts in orbit?

Ben Rich 150x150 Gary McKinnon and the Solar Warden secret program

Also Ben Rich Lockheed Skunk Works Director, admitted in his deathbed confession:U.S. Military travel to  stars and Extraterrestrial UFO visitors are real”, which can be interpreted as U.S. Military works together with Extraterrestrials, in the development of  space craft.

Ben Rich: “We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.”

McKinnon’s conclusion of a U.S. Navy space fleet is also supported by the comments of a serving U.S. naval officer who has revealed in private interviews that the U.S. Navy is in charge of policy when it comes to the use of advanced off-planet technologies.

The space fleet, hidden and unknown to the public… operates under the US Naval Network and Space Operations Command (NNSOC) (formerly Naval Space Command). There are approximately 300 personnel involved at that facility

Solar Warden is said to be made up from U.S. aerospace Black Projects contractors, but with some contributions of parts and systems by Canada. United Kingdom, Italy, Austria, Russia, and Australia. It is also said that the program is tested and operated from secret military bases such as Area 51 in Nevada, USA.

Julian Assange Speach from Embassy of Ecuador

Assange, of WikiLeaks addresses the public of London and thanks them for their support as well as Latin America’s. He underscores that any action to expose unconstitutional behaviour is never too small and always of benefit.

Additionally, he calls for an honourable response from Obama and the release of those wrongfully imprisoned in America.

Julian Assange Will Be Granted Political Asylum in Ecuador

“Quito, Ecuador”

Quito- Officials close to the Ecuadorian President in Quito have advised that WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, will reportedly be granted asylum in Ecuador. Final confirmation is awaited from Correa.

Digital Journal reported earlier today that a decision on Assange’s asylum would be released soon after a meeting between President Correa and his Foreign Minister, Ricardo Patiño, on Wednesday.

However, Irene Caselli, reporter for The Guardian who is based in Quito, is reporting that an official, who is familiar with the government discussions, was quoted as saying, “Ecuador will grant asylum to Julian Assange.”

President Correa told Ecuadorian state television on Monday that a decision would be made this week, and Foreign Minister, Ricardo Patiño indicated that the president would reveal his answer once the London Olympic Games were over.

According to government sources in Quito, it is confirmed that despite the outstanding legal issues, President Correa will grant asylum to Assange. They added that this offer had been made to Assange several months ago, prior to his seeking refuge in the embassy. An official with knowledge of these discussions had said that the embassy had discussed the asylum request. He said that the British government “discouraged the idea.”

The Swedish government was also “not very collaborative”, he added. The official added: “We see Assange’s request as a humanitarian issue. The contact between the Ecuadorean government and WikiLeaks goes back to May 2011, when we became the first country to see the leaked U.S. embassy cables completely declassified … It is clear that when Julian entered the embassy there was already some sort of deal.

We see in his work a parallel with our struggle for national sovereignty and the democratization of international relations.” Difficulties will possibly be experienced by Assange when he tries to leave the embassy to head to Quito.

Patiño told Reuters on Tuesday, “For Mr Assange to leave England, he should have a safe pass from the British [government]. Will that be possible? That’s an issue we have to take into account.” Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy on June 19, after the British Supreme Court refused to reopen his appeal against extradition to Sweden on alleged charges of sexual misconduct.

Assange and his lawyers believe that the U.S. has already lodged a sealed indictment against Assange, and that his case might even be worse than the one of whistleblower Bradley Manning. The U.S. wants Assange over the release of secret cables which caused the U.S. major embarrassment.

Correa and Patiño have both said that Ecuador will take a sovereign decision regarding Assange. They say they view his case as a humanitarian act, and are seeking to protect Assange’s right to life and freedom.

Assange’s mother, Christine Assange, was recently in Quito for discussions with President Correa and Patiño. During her visit, María Augusta Calle, a congresswoman of the president’s party, and former head of the Sovereignty, Foreign Affairs and Latin American Integration Commission during the 2008 Constitutional Assembly, told Mrs Assange, “Our comrade the president, who leads our international policy, will grant Julian Assange asylum.” However, final confirmation from the President’s office that asylum has been granted to Assange, has not yet been received.

Current Update: Swiss Bankers drop holiday plans for fear of arrests

 

ZURICH/GENEVA | Thu Jun 14, 2012 11:43am EDT

(Reuters) – Browsing glossy brochures in search of an exotic and relaxing summer holiday is the norm for Swiss private bankers at this time of year.

But many will be going no further than the Alps, fretting that Switzerland’s tax disputes with the United States and other nations could leave them open to arrest and extradition if they leave the country and are suspected of aiding tax cheats.

Even secretaries working on U.S. accounts at the banks are reckoned to be at risk, while one banker rang an advice hotline because he was worried about nipping over the French border to buy groceries.

All this comes as Switzerland negotiates to get U.S. probes against 11 banks dropped in return for payment of fines and the transfer of names of thousands of U.S. clients. It also wants a deal to shield the rest of its 300 or so banks from prosecution.

Several Swiss bank employees have been arrested or indicted in the U.S. since the long-running tax dispute broke.

Banks including HSBC and Credit Suisse have given about 10,000 employee names to U.S. authorities in an attempt to avoid the fate of private bank Wegelin, which broke up in January under threat of indictment, bank employees and lawyers said.

A middle office worker, who attended a Geneva advice seminar organized by The Association of Swiss Bank Employees (SBPV), and whose bank sent her name to U.S. authorities, cancelled plans to attend a school reunion in the States in July.

“I recently went to London but I had my radar on the whole time. I am very uncomfortable when I travel,” she said.

Former UBS banker Renzo Gadola, who received five months’ probation after co-operating with U.S. authorities, and Credit Suisse’s Christos Bagios, yet to be charged since his January 2011 arrest, are among Swiss bank staff to have been arrested in the States.

“Partners of the bank prefer to spend their holidays in Switzerland,” said a spokeswoman for Wegelin, which is contesting summons to face U.S. criminal charges that it conspired to help wealthy Americans evade taxes.

The SBPV set up a hotline this month and organized events in Geneva and Zurich to advise bankers about overseas travel.

Rudolf Wyss, former deputy director of the Swiss Federal Department of Justice, told Geneva-based bankers that if they had advised clients on U.S. soil or taken on a U.S. client from Swiss bank UBS, they should cancel all travel plans.

“If the banker goes to the States there is a real risk of arrest. I would advise not to leave Switzerland,” he told a tense SBPV meeting in Geneva on Tuesday.

“If there is an international arrest warrant you could be arrested, for instance, in France or Italy and then extradited to the States.”

And secretaries working on U.S. accounts could be summoned as witnesses if they travel to the States, he added.

An SBPV official said it has received several phone calls a day on the travel hotline, adding one member was even worried enough to call about crossing the French border for groceries.

In January, a finance ministry spokesman said Swiss banks had handed tens of thousands of pages of data to U.S. authorities, including names of client advisers, as part of an effort to reach a deal over the dispute.

And Swiss finance minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf remains hopeful of a deal before November’s U.S. presidential elections.

WARNED OFF

Yet some bankers have also been warned off going to Germany, where a deal to tax undeclared assets and shield banks from prosecution has yet to be ratified.

One asset manager said he uses a small family car for trips to Germany to avoid detection as a financial adviser.

Even banks not targeted by foreign tax probes have advised employees to think carefully before travelling.

“We have asked them to let us know if they are going to the United States because we do not want to risk them running into a situation,” said Bernard Kobler, CEO of Luzerner Kantonalbank.

One Geneva-based private banker who requested anonymity said bankers holidaying abroad should not carry client documentation, to avoid being accused of conducting business.

“Bankers are going for chartered holidays to avoid the risk of being accused of looking for business while they are on holiday,” said the chief executive of another Geneva-based private bank, who also asked not to be quoted by name.

“In December, I visited my wife and daughter in America and I told immigration I was a mortgage broker – I did not say banker,” joked Pierin Vincenz, chief executive of Swiss cooperative bank Raiffeisen at a recent conference in Zurich.

Bankers who really can’t go without sea and sun could choose from such places such as Tunisia, the Maldives or Vanuatu, where there is no extradition treaty with the U.S. – though to be truly safe, they must ensure the flight does not involve a stopover in countries with U.S. treaties.
