by Joe Lauria, Consortium News:

Decision on Assange’s fate will not come for at least another eight months.

A decision on whether Julian Assange will be extradited to the United States to face charges under the Espionage Act will not come until the end of February 2020 at the earliest, the Westminster Magistrate’s Court ruled on Friday.

Pentagon seeks to build global ‘consensus’ on Iran. Is it time to worry?

from RT:

The Trump administration is looking to “build international consensus” against Iran following attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. But what does that actually mean? And to what end is it used?

“The focus for myself and Ambassador Bolton and Secretary Pompeo is to build international consensus to this international problem,” acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told reporters outside the Pentagon on Friday.

Shanahan went on to say that the Pentagon would contribute to this effort by sharing intelligence with allies, as it did Friday when it released a video it claims shows Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) removing an undetonated mine from the hull of one of two tankers attacked that morning.

Persian Gulf attack: Cui Bono?

by Steve Brown, The Duran:

Search for the term, “Where does Israel import its oil from” and prepare to be surprised by the result. The number one search result returns information from Zion Oil, a religious right Wall Street affinity scam which has fleeced Bible-belt ‘investors’ for years, and now sells for .37 cents US per share.

Even so, Zion Oil has described Israel’s oil import dilemma quite well:  “Over the past 25 years, significant fuel imports have come from Angola, Colombia, Mexico, Egypt, and Norway. In more recent times, the Israelis have turned to Russia, Kazakhstan, and some of the other -stans for the bulk of their oil. In 2015 – 2016, most of Israel’s oil is supplied from the volatile Kurdish region.”

Japanese tanker owner claims crew saw ‘flying objects’ before attack, denies ship struck mine

from RT:

The Japanese company that owns the ‘Kokuka Courageous’ tanker has said its crew spotted “flying objects” before the attack in the Gulf of Oman, contradicting US claims that the vessel was damaged by a naval mine.

Yutaka Katada, president of Kokuka Sangyo, told reporters on Friday that sailors on board the ill-fated oil tanker observed “flying objects” just before the incident in which the ship caught fire and was badly damaged. The giant vessel was hit twice, first near the engine room and then on its starboard side.

The State of the Canadian Debt Slaves, and How They Compare to the American Debt Slaves

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

This, despite still ultra-low interest rates and the highest disposable income ever.

Canadian households are known around the world for their uncanny ability to pile on debt. And American debt slaves, who’d gotten trampled during the Great Recession, turn out to be lackadaisical these days in comparison.

The share of disposable income (total incomes from all sources minus taxes) that Canadian households spent on making principal and interest payments on their ballooning mortgage debts and non-mortgage debts reached a new record of 14.9% in the first quarter, despite still ultra-low interest rates and despite the highest disposable income ever, according to data released today by Statistics Canada:
