‘Last diplomat he knew’: Ecuador ousts London envoy, fuels rumors of Assange’s imminent eviction

0

from The Duran:

This new and sudden twist in the Assange saga has been met with concern by his supporters.

Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno has terminated the credentials of his UK ambassador, who has been at the center of negotiating the fate of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, as concerns mount over the whistleblower’s safety.

The decree, with which Moreno effectively sacked Ecuador’s London ambassador Abad Ortiz, was published by WikiLeaks on Wednesday. The document does not offer any explanation as to why Ortiz, who had been his country’s ambassador to the UK since 2015, is now being permanently recalled. Nor does it name a successor for the outgoing diplomat. The decree is effective immediately.

0

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Australia, Switzerland, Poland and Israel were the latest countries to reject the United Nations Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

The compact will force Western countries to open their borders, provide safe passage and funding for an endless wave of third world migrants.

The agreement will bankrupt the West. It is a globalist’s dream.

Already several countries have refused to sign onto the insane compact.

Hillary Clinton Says Europe Needs to Cut Immigration to Kill Populism

by Virginia Hale, Breitbart:

Failed U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said Europe should send signals that it will cut immigration, in order to combat the rise of populist parties.

In an interview with Britain’s left-wing newspaper The Guardian, Clinton said that while she admired “the very generous and compassionate approaches” taken on mass migration from the third world, “particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel”, globalist parties in Europe need to change tack in order to maintain voters’ confidence in centrist politics.

Authorities Are Using A “Mysterious New Tool” That Can Unlock Virtually Any Cellphone

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Your cellphone is a gold mine of information about where you have been, who you have been talking to, and what you have been doing online.  And now a “mysterious new tool” is enabling law enforcement authorities all over the nation to get access to that information on virtually any phone.  So if you end up going to prison someday, it could be the evidence that is pulled out of your cellphone that ultimately puts you away.  Of course most Americans never even consider that their own cellphones could be systematically gathering evidence against them.  For most of us, cellphones are simply extremely convenient tools that allow us to communicate effectively with the rest of the world.  But if the authorities decide to investigate you, your cellphone is going to be one of the first things that they want, and what they find on there could put you behind bars for a very, very long time.

Sweet Jesus, The Scams NEVER Stop

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

The entire “health industry” needs to be destroyed.

Not “reformed” — there is no reform possible — destroyed.

Everyone involved at the executive level must go to prison and, if the government won’t do it, well….. use your imagination.

Millions of sleep apnea patients rely on CPAP breathing machines to get a good night’s rest. Health insurers use a variety of tactics, including surveillance, to make patients bear the costs. Experts say it’s part of the insurance industry playbook.

Trump, JFK, and the Deep State: Part Q

by Jack Ravenwood, Unz:

We are now at year 55 since the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963. This defining event of the Baby Boomer generation still looms large over the American nation, ever finding new ways to stay relevant to contemporary events.

There have been two significant developments during the Trump presidency. First was Trump’s tweet in October 2017 saying that he would declassify all the remaining JFK files that the government is still withholding. I and many others who are interested in the JFK investigation were hopeful that this would happen, as I wrote in March of that year. While Trump’s supporters cheered and took it as further confirmation of Trump’s anti-establishment bona fides, the claim unfortunately turned out to be false. More than 15,000 records remain withheld, including some of the most important records that researchers have been waiting for, such as those on CIA man George Joannides.

Trump Signs Order Closing Border With Mexico, Authorizing Lethal Force

from ZeroHedge:

Yesterday we reported that president Trump had authorized troops stationed at the border to act in a law enforcement capacity to “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary” to protect border agents, including “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention. and cursory search.”

That wasn’t all: speaking to reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, the president said on Thursday that he also signed an order to close the U.S. border with Mexico, adding that he’s authorized troops to use lethal force against migrants who attempt to enter the U.S.

Anonymous Reveals Covert UK Special Ops on Hybrid Warfare in EU

from Sputnik News:

A hacker group claims to have obtained documents shedding light on the activities of a London-based NGO that officially has a noble mission: to “defend democracy against disinformation.” Instead, the project, known as Integrity Initiative, was reportedly used by London to interfere in the domestic affairs of European countries.

The online hacker group Anonymous said on Friday that the British government has created a “large-scale information secret service” across Europe, the US and Canada to meddle into the domestic affairs of European nations.

Things I Am Thankful For That Will Annoy Liberals

by Kurt Schlichter, The Burning Platform:

This Thanksgiving Day, there are many things that I’m thankful for, things that are a blessing in my life, and many things that are a traumatic source of pain to my enemies. Often, they are both at the same time. Now, I’m not sure if I’m doing Thanksgiving right by being thankful for the failure and misery of people who are bad, but I’m also thankful that I don’t care about such conundrums.

Anyway, here are some of the things that I’m thankful for this year…
