There is also the question of #Russiagate. It goes without saying that #Trump would covet an opportunity to settle scores with the #Democratic Party over that #witch hunt, which, in cahoots with the #mainstream #media, stalked the #US leader and his administration for two painstaking years. And even now, after the release of the #Mueller Report, the Democrats refuse to throw in the towel and are plotting to #interrogate the interrogator himself, #RobertMueller. This is where #Julian #Assange might help halt the madness, although that is not to suggest, of course, that he is necessarily predisposed to such an opportunity. Yet he may find himself with no choice in the matter.Any guesses whose name was brought up in the course of the meeting between Binney and Pompeo? Yes, that of #SethRich. Again, whether or not that proves to be significant remains an open question.
Although the mainstream media may be #ignoring #Binney’s findings, that doesn’t mean everyone is. In October 2017, Binney paid a visit to #CIA headquarters, at the invitation of #DonaldTrump, where he met with then agency director Mike #Pompeo, as cited by The Intercept.
~ Will Julian Assange ‘Team up’ With Trump to Bury Russiagate – and Just Maybe the Deep State – Once and for All?

CNN analysts tied to Qatar—media report
Analysts double as Qatar-tied propagandists, attack Saudi Arabia, UAE
Dubai: US media outlet Conservative Review reported that several of the “so-called national security experts at CNN that you see on television every night have direct links to the nation of Qatar, a terror-funding, Islamist enclave in the Middle East that has placed itself on the warpath against America’s most important regional allies.”
Viewers would never know about the connections “because none of the CNN regulars disclose their financial and/or institutional ties to Qatar when they appear on the airwaves.”
“And off air, they are also not forthcoming about their Qatar-backed connections. Even when it comes to discussing issues where they have a clear conflict of interest, such as commenting on Israeli, Saudi, or UAE affairs, these CNN contributors have no issue going to bat against Qatar’s rivals, while never mentioning that their editorial freedom is restricted or that they are personally compromised,” the magazine reported on Tuesday.
Conservative Review named four “CNN regulars”, including two full-time employees, and said they “double as Qatar-tied propagandists, but you would never know it if you only watched CNN.”
Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt severed ties with Qatar on June 5, 2017 accusing it of harboring extremists and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.
Several attempts to resolve the conflict have failed in the past two years.

La direction ministerielle dirigée par Emmanuel Hoog ( ancien PDG de l’AFP ) a remis son rapport sur la création d'un conseil du journalisme. Il suggère :
- l'adoption de la charte de Munich comme charte commune à toute la profession pour servir de base aux jugements;
- la création de trois collèges composés de : journalistes, éditeurs de presse et citoyens;
- que sa création soit spontanée sous la forme d’une association initiée par les médias eux-mêmes.
Il propose de charger ce conseil :
- de répondre aux demandes visant à reconnaître certaines pratiques médiatiques comme contraire à la morale civique et à la déontologie journalistique;
- de la rédaction de publications plus générales sur le fonctionnement des médias;
- d'un pouvoir de « labellisation » des médias pour lutter contre les fake-news.

George Monbiot (The Guardian)
No one is coming to save us. Mass civil disobedience is essential to force a political response.
Had we put as much effort into preventing environmental catastrophe as we’ve spent on making excuses for inaction, we would have solved it by now. Everywhere I look, I see people engaged in furious attempts to fend off the moral challenge it presents.
The commonest current excuse is this: “I bet those protesters have phones/go on holiday/wear leather shoes.” In other words, we won’t listen to anyone who is not living naked in a barrel, subsisting only on murky water. Of course, if you are living naked in a barrel we will dismiss you too, because you’re a hippie weirdo. Every messenger, and every message they bear, is disqualified on the grounds of either impurity or purity. (...)
The political class, as anyone who has followed its progress over the past three years can surely now see, is chaotic, unwilling and, in isolation, strategically incapable of addressing even short-term crises, let alone a vast existential predicament. Yet a widespread and wilful naivety prevails: the belief that voting is the only political action required to change a system. (...)
The media, with a few exceptions, is actively hostile. Even when broadcasters cover these issues, they carefully avoid any mention of power, talking about environmental collapse as if it is driven by mysterious, passive forces, and proposing microscopic fixes for vast structural problems. The BBC’s Blue Planet Live series exemplified this tendency. (...)
Catastrophe afflicts people now and, unlike those in the rich world who can still afford to wallow in despair, they are forced to respond in practical ways. In Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, devastated by Cyclone Idai, in Syria, Libya and Yemen, where climate chaos has contributed to civil war, in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador,, where crop failure, drought and the collapse of fisheries have driven people from their homes, despair is not an option. Our inaction has forced them into action, as they respond to terrifying circumstances caused primarily by the rich world’s consumption. (...)
Our system – characterised by perpetual economic growth on a planet that is not growing – will inevitably implode. The only question is whether the transformation is planned or unplanned. Our task is to ensure it is planned, and fast. We need to conceive and build a new system based on the principle that every generation, everywhere has an equal right to enjoy natural wealth. (...)
The time for excuses is over. The struggle to overthrow our life-denying system has begun.

Women’s groups have added to pressure on Sajid Javid to ensure Julian Assange is extradited to Sweden. Failure to do so would effectively endorse “rape culture”, they claim.
A coalition of campaigners representing survivors of sexual violence urged the home secretary to focus on the unresolved rape allegations emanating from Sweden against Assange. They fear that US charges – relating to Wikileaks’ disclosures – may be given priority in the UK. #JulianAssange #WikiLeaks #Rapeandsexualassault #DianeAbbott #Sweden #Media #Law #Politics #Europe #UKnews
