Julian Assange’s Internet Access Cut Off By Ecuador:

Let’s get right to it. Earlier today, Julian Assange had his internet access severed.

Here’s a translation of the statement from the government of Ecuador, in whose embassy he’s been trapped since 2012:

Assange Tweets Famous Chess Match Depicting “Safe White King” One Day After Ecuador Grants Citizenship

Assange Tweets Famous Chess Match Depicting “Safe White King” One Day After Ecuador Grants Citizenship:

One day after Julian Assange was granted Ecuadorian citizenship, the Wikileaks founder tweeted a cryptic picture of a famous 1918 chess match in which Cuban chess master José Raúl Capablanca defeats U.S. champion Frank Marshall using a pawn.

The move which Assange tweets can be seen below at approximately 7:14, in which the narrator says “And the white king is finally feeling safe.”

Theories naturally began to swirl in various corners of the internet, with some suggesting Assange’s tweet is a message to his followers that he, “the White King” is safe. Others took the “white king” to mean President Trump – who is well protected while a pawn is used to win the match.

Ecuador: Propaganda as News – with Rebuttal from Amazon Watch

Ecuador: Propaganda as News – with Rebuttal from Amazon Watch:

At the end of January a news article appeared, “Ecuador To Sell A Third Of Its Amazon Rainforest To Chinese Oil Companies,” and has resurfaced again and again on the internet. Posted on progressive websites such as Reader Supported News, Daily Kos, “The PeoplesVoice.org”, “ThinkGlobalGreen.org”, the story often comes with maps of the affected area, and include pictures of indigenous peoples living peaceably with nature or protesting against oil drilling.

US and Ecuador deny conspiring to take Julian Assange offline

“We don’t need any more proof than this.

Kerry obviously threatened them, as it has repeatedly over the last fifty years….if in doubt please read “New Confessions of an Economic Hitman” by John Perkins, it explains how the UasA has covertly taken over the world via bribes, corruption and blackmail in favour of Global Corporations, and if leaders rejected their advances they were either accidentally killed in plane crashes or ousted by engineered coup.”

US and Ecuador deny conspiring to take Julian Assange offline:

The governments of the US and Ecuador have denied that they conspired to silence Julian Assange, after the WikiLeaks founder’s internet access was cut off at his London embassy home to stop him releasing damaging information about Hillary Clinton’s US election campaign.

Ecuador confirmed late on Tuesday that it had intervened at the weekend to temporarily restrict Assange’s internet access, pointing to a “wealth” of WikiLeaks publications “impacting on the US election campaign” as the reason. WikiLeaks has released successive dumps of damaging material over recent months from inside the Democratic party and the Clinton campaign, which the US government has blamed on Russian state hacking.

‘Julian Assange losing internet access possible US cyber attack’

H/t reader squodgy:

“OK the Ecuador Gov have accepted they blocked Assange internet access, but do they have the ability to do that?

Remember the Hidden hand controls CIA, MI5 & 6′ and Mossad, and thus, by proxy both the NSA and GCHQ. What are the chances…..???”


It is unlikely that Ecuador, supporting whistleblower Julian Assange, deprived him from the opportunity to use internet, says Peter Van Buren, former officer, US State Department’s Foreign Service. The countries like the US have much more reasons for that, he added.

According to Wikileaks’ twitter feed, Ecuador cut off Julian Assange’ internet access on Saturday. The same day more than a dozen Wikileaks members reportedly had their Internet and phone connections cut.

RT: Wikileaks claims Assange’s Internet access has been cut by Ecuador. What do you make of this? Could there be a third party involved here?

Peter Van Buren: It is difficult to surmise an explanation why Ecuador would have cut his internet services. Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy for so long; there has been no political change in the Ecuadorian government. I can’t even take a guess why they might have done that to him.

At the same time, imagining the reasons a third party might have cut that internet access are fairly easy to do. Assange has embarrassed the US government. The US government has made claims that he is working with the Russians, and that the Russians with Assange are trying to disrupt or interfere in America’s election. And we’ve seen reports over the weekend that the US is planning some form of retaliation in cyberspace. It is not unlikely that that retaliation may include poking the bear in the nose, perhaps starting with cutting off Assange’s internet access.

RT: Presuming that was Ecuador who cut the internet connection, do you think there is a possibility they were forced to do that?

Ecuador Admits They Silenced Assange Because Clinton Leaks Were ‘Interfering’ With US Election

Blankfein-Hillary-Clinton

Julian Assange abruptly had his tether to the outside world purposely cut off Monday, when — as Wikileaks announced on Twitter — his “internet connection was intentionally severed by a state party.”

Several hours later, Wikileaks added:

“We can confirm Ecuador cut off Assange’s internet access Saturday, 5pm GMT, shortly after publication of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speeches.”

Ecuador Admits Censoring Assange Over “U.S. Election”; Denies “Yielding To Pressure From Other States”

Ecuador Admits Censoring Assange Over “U.S. Election”; Denies “Yielding To Pressure From Other States”:

Just moments ago, the Ecuadorian government confirmed that it intentionally cut Julian Assange’s internet access due to his publication of a “wealth of documents impacting the U.S. election.”  Despite what seems to be the Ecuadorian government caving to political pressure from the Obama administration, the statement takes special caution to reassure everyone that the decision was in response to “sovereign decisions alone” and that Ecuador “does not yield to pressure from other states”….sure, though we do wonder how many drafts John Kerry’s staffers went through at the State Department before finally approving these comments for dissemination.

Here are some key excerpts from the Ecuadorian statement:

Mystery Deepens Around Fate Of Julian Assange

Mystery Deepens Around Fate Of Julian Assange:

The following tweets posted by WikiLeaks yesterday set off a massive bout of speculation over the fate of Julian Assange who has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for nearly 4 years.  There has been much speculation that the sudden change in support for Assange from the Ecuadorian government was prompted by political leverage being asserted by the Obama administration to thwart the release of emails that are proving to be very damaging to the Hillary presidential campaign.

Now, just this morning, WikiLeaks sent the following tweet, quoting “multiple US sources,” saying that, in fact, John Kerry personally asked the Ecuadorian government to shut down Assange and his leaks of Clinton’s emails.

Wikileaks Provides An Update On The Assange Internet Outage

Wikileaks Provides An Update On The Assange Internet Outage:

It seems that the Obama administration’s efforts to save the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton is finally starting to yield tangible results as WikiLeaks just provided the following update that Julian Assange was cut off from using the Internet at the Ecuadorian embassy in London effective Saturday evening.

Clearly the lack of internet for Assange hasn’t slowed the release of Hillary’s emails as Part 9 of the Podesta emails were released yesterday and Part 10 was just released a few hours ago.

Of course, this comes just a few days after the Obama administration announced overt plans to escalate a cyber war with Russia over allegations they were behind the hacking of Hillary’s private email server.

Certainly, one has to wonder what this means for the future of Assange as clearly the Obama administration has applied sufficient pressure on the Ecuadorian government such that they have started to cave on their support of him.  Perhaps we should be checking flight logs for mysterious planes landing in Quito with billions of Swiss Francs on board.

Zika Virus Spreading Worldwide – Zika Used As Excuse To Spray People With Toxic Poison – The Corporate Media Unleashed

If your place has been fumigated with sulfuryl fluoride or its other toxic friends …

Wikipedia:

Methyl bromide was among the most widely used fumigants until its production and use was restricted by the Montreal Protocol due to its role in ozone depletion.

Widely used fumigants include:

  • phosphine
  • 1,3-dichloropropene
  • chloropicrin
  • methyl isocyanate
  • hydrogen cyanide
  • sulfuryl fluoride
  • formaldehyde
  • iodoform

… you better consider moving to another place, or you and your family will get sick, which sometimes takes a while, but it’s not worth waiting for it to happen.

Oh, and these bastards are not spraying to prevent the Zika virus from spreading, they are spraying you, the people, like bugs!

Maybe they want to spray and force vaccinate the entire world, who knows?

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa called on the police and military Monday to be prepared for destabilizing attempts by opposition groups ahead of a national strike set for mid-August.

“We need to be ready to confront them with the weapons of the law and the Constitution,” Correa said according to local news agency La Hora. ”To fight for the homeland, dear soldiers — without hoping for compensations — that’s the vocation of the truly uniformed.”

Ecuador smashes reforestation world record (redOrbit, May 18, 2015):

When Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa made his latest weekly address, he had some big news for conservationists around the globe. The President said his country had just broken the world record for reforestation.

Thousands of people had joined in to plant 647,250 trees of more than 200 species. The seedlings were planted all over Ecuador, taking advantage of the country’s wide range of climatic and geographical regions. New trees were introduced everywhere, from the Pacific coast to the high Andes and low-lying tropical Amazon basin.

According a Tweet by Ecuador’s Environment Minister, Lorena Tapia, 44,883 people took part in the record-breaking dig-in which covered more than 4,942 acres.

Ecuadorian President Says The CIA Is Attempting To Overthrow His Government (MintPress/ANTIMEDIA, MArch 25, 2015):

The CIA has a history of contributing to coups in Ecuador. Back in 1963, the CIA led a coup which deposed President Carlos Julio Arosemena because he criticized the United States and supported Fidel Castro’s revolution in Cuba.

Over the weekend several outlets reported that Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa made comments alluding to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) “being increasingly involved in the political opposition with the avowed aim of dragging the country into chaos.” 

The reports also claim Correa stated the CIA was attempting to weaken the government through “a series of coordinated nationwide protests.”

However, Ecuador has released a statement claiming the president was speaking about the role of U.S. intelligence services meddling the county’s affairs and support of opposition groups, but not direct involvement in the recent protests.

President Correa tweeted that the AFP incorrectly reported the news and accused the news agency of distorting the truth and misrepresenting his statements.

India’s Central Bank Will Sell Gold On The Market In Exchange For Gold At The Bank Of England

India’s Central Bank Will Sell Gold on the Market in Exchange for Gold at the Bank of England (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 2, 2014):

India’s gold policy over the last several years is about as dysfunctional as any government policy I have ever seen, and that’s saying a lot. In case you need a reminder, here are a few posts I have written on the subject:

The Times of India: “Almost Every Passenger on a Flight from Dubai to Calicut Was Found Carrying 1kg of Gold”

Gold Smuggling Increases 7x in India and Surpasses Illegal Drug Trade

Indian Temples Fight Back Against Government Gold Grabbing Plot

In a nutshell, Indians were buying too much gold for their government’s comfort, so the “authorities” stepped in with duties and import restrictions in an attempt to stifle the trade. So smuggling soared.

Fast forward to today. It appears the government has finally realized they can’t stop their citizens penchant for gold, so they have decided to dump central bank gold onto the market. What is incredible to me is that they are justifying this with a so-called “swap” into phantom gold at the Bank of England. The favored global hub of shady, rent-seeking, banker oligarchs.

What’s even more interesting about this is the fact that so many Central Banks seems to be swapping or selling their gold to Western interests. Most notably Ecuador selling to Goldman Sachs, which I highlighted in the piece: Ecuador to Transfer More Than Half its Gold Reserves to Goldman Sachs in Exchange for “Liquidity.”

Now from Reuters:

MUMBAI, July 2 (Reuters) – India’s central bank said on Wednesday it has sought quotes from banks to swap gold in its own vaults for international-standard gold, aiming to improve the management of its reserves.
