“Security Intelligence Consultancy” SC Strategy Ltd has only three directors.

One is the husband of the judge in yesterday’s Assange ruling.

One is the former Head of MI6, Sir John Scarlett, who is synonymous with crooked security operations and personally wrote the notorious dossier of lies on Iraqi WMD, thus causing the subsequent deaths of millions of people.

One is Lord Carlile, who was notably close to protected Establishment paedophiles Greville Janner and Cyril Smith.

Is the British Establishment not endlessly fascinating?

The corporate media has published no information about “Lady” Arbuthnot’s background and sinister links at all, despite the fact it is uniformly carrying her jibes at Assange as a major story.

There can be no clearer example of the fact that it is the corporate media which, deliberately and systematically, spreads fake news, while bloggers get out the actual facts via social media. ... [Craig Murray - 14/2/18]

Durable Solutions: Once again the UNHCR produces another weaselly "update" that doesn't call for FREEDOM and an end to anti-refugee "deterrence", thus continuing to provide cover for Australia's illegal trafficking, indefinite imprisonment, torture and exile policy. [13/2/19]:

20 asylum seekers deported from Manus refugee concentration camp [The National - 1/3/17]:


... “All of these men signed but the big problem is that all of them were under pressure and threatened by immigration for a long time.

“Nobody has done research about the people who went back to their countries during the past four years, so we don’t know what has happened to them.

“It’s hard to imagine the cruelty of this policy and how they have put so much pressure on people who had suffered incredibly for four years.”

Boochani said that the Resettlement Support Centre, a company contracted to assist refugees seeking permanent resettlement in the United States, interviewed about 20 refugees per day.

The Resettlement Support Centre was contracted by the United States Department of Homeland Security.


“In Manus, there are no advisers for refugees to help them make decisions about their future,” he said.

“When refugees asked RSC (Resettlement Support Centre) company officers, they don’t give them any useful information.

“There is no assurance that they will reunite with their families and it’s very worrying .”

The fence effectively stopped asylum-seekers from Sudan and Eritrea from entering the country.

In a speech to the Congress on Judaism and Democracy, Shaked also said, “I think that ‘Judaizing the Galilee’ is not an offensive term. We used to talk like that. In recent years we’ve stopped talking like that. I think it’s legitimate without violating the full rights of the Arab residents of Israel.”...
