Assange “suffering from severe depression”, High risk of suicide “if extradition appears imminent.”, Witness Prof. Michael Kopelman September 22, 2020

Assange “suffering from severe depression”, High risk of suicide “if extradition appears imminent.”, Witness Prof. Michael Kopelman September 22, 2020

“Replying to this last point, the prosecution pointed out that a Grand Jury against Assange had been established by Obama and there was no indication the investigation had been closed. Feldstein agreed, the “Obama administration was very eager to file charges against Assange and they conducted a very aggressive investigation.” All of which speaks for the point that Assange is being sought for political reasons—motivations which are common to the whole American ruling class. It was current Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden who branded the WikiLeaks publisher and journalist a “high-tech terrorist.””…Laura Tiernan and Thomas Scripps, Sept 9, 2020

“Why John Brennan, Peter Strzok and DOJ Needed Julian Assange Arrested”…The Conservative Treehouse November 3, 2019

 

 

From Consortium News September 22, 2020.

“6:35 am EDT: Court is in session.  Prof. Michael Kopelman has been sworn in, standing in the actual wooden stand of the court, as the defense’s first witness on Tuesday.  Kopelman is a professor of neuropsychology at King’s College, London. He testifies that Assange is suffering from severe depression with loss sleep, appetite and weight loss. He also found a high risk of suicide “if extradition appears imminent.”  Kopelman said Assange has had a history of clinical depression and said his risk of suicide would increase if extradition was imminent.

Consortium News is limiting the detail of testimony about Assange’s mental health conditions after an appeal from Kopelman and defense attorney Edward Fitzgerald to the media to do so.

Of all the efforts of the defense to prevent Assange’s extradition, this testimony might have the greatest effect on the court. Ruling against extradition on medical grounds would it seems bypass the political controversies in this case.

Cross 

On cross examination Lewis is trying to question Kopleman’s credentials, saying he was not a forsenic psychiatrist, who work in prisons. Kopelman retorted that he had spent time in many prisons and that even Lewis had once urgently called upon him for his expert testimony in an extradition case. That brought laughter in the courtroom, even from Judge Baraitser.”

“That is what has brought you here. You are here because you have failed in humility, in self-discipline. You would not make the act of submission which is the price of sanity. You preferred to be a lunatic, a minority of one. Only the disciplined mind can see reality, Winston. You believe that reality is something objective, external, existing in its own right. You also believe that the nature of reality is self-evident. When you delude yourself into thinking that you see something, you assume that everyone else sees the same thing as you. But I tell you, Winston, that reality is not external. Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal. Whatever the Party holds to be the truth, is truth. It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party. That is the fact that you have got to relearn, Winston. It needs an act of self-destruction, an effort of the will. You must humble yourself before you can become sane.”…George Orwell, 1984

JK Rowling attacked books burned for Speaking out on Sex and Gender Issues, Modern day Nazi thugs and Thought Police burn books, Rowling Thought Criminal

“With those children [Winston] thought, that wretched woman must lead a life of terror. Another year, two years, and they would be watching her night and day for symptoms of unorthodoxy. Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party.”…George Orwell, “1984”

“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”...Adolf Hitler

“”You’re a traitor!” yelled the boy. “You’re a thought criminal!””...George Orwell, “1984”

 

More evidence we are reliving history, Nazi Germany, and living “1984.”

From Jonathan Turley September 20, 2020.

“Rowling’s Books Burned or Banned Around the World Over Her Personal Views Of Gender”

“A TikTok series show people around the world burning copies of Rowlings’ books. In one video of a burning pile of books by TikTok user @elmcdo, a voice is heard saying

“You have to stop using ‘death of the author’ as an excuse to have your cake and eat it too. While the reader’s perspective is an important part of interpretation and meaning, it is impossible to completely divorce a work from its creator. The positive impact that J.K. Rowling’s work had on millions of readers does not negate how her hateful lobbying has affected the trans community.”

That sums up the logic of every book burner in history.  You cannot read a book because of the views or religion or identity of the author.  It is better to burn the book to protect society.

Then there is Rabble Books and Games in Maylands, Perth. The owner owner Nat Latter proudly declared on Facebook that he had removed all fo the Harry Potter books from bookshelves to guarantee “a safer space for our community.” So you can buy a Rowlings book by having it retrieved from behind the back room like pornography.  It is a form of censoring by making it more difficult to buy some books rather than others because you disfavor authors with opposing views. Latter seems to relish the role of a book censoring book seller:

“Whilst stocking a book isn’t an endorsement (good grief, that would be a minefield), and we will always take orders for books that aren’t in stock, there are more worthy books to put on the shelf, books that don’t harm communities and won’t make us sad to unpack them.”

Does Latter also hide works with opposing views on gender from the Bible to the Koran to classic novels?”

From J.K. Rowling.

“For people who don’t know: last December I tweeted my support for Maya Forstater, a tax specialist who’d lost her job for what were deemed ‘transphobic’ tweets. She took her case to an employment tribunal, asking the judge to rule on whether a philosophical belief that sex is determined by biology is protected in law. Judge Tayler ruled that it wasn’t.

My interest in trans issues pre-dated Maya’s case by almost two years, during which I followed the debate around the concept of gender identity closely. I’ve met trans people, and read sundry books, blogs and articles by trans people, gender specialists, intersex people, psychologists, safeguarding experts, social workers and doctors, and followed the discourse online and in traditional media. On one level, my interest in this issue has been professional, because I’m writing a crime series, set in the present day, and my fictional female detective is of an age to be interested in, and affected by, these issues herself, but on another, it’s intensely personal, as I’m about to explain.

All the time I’ve been researching and learning, accusations and threats from trans activists have been bubbling in my Twitter timeline. This was initially triggered by a ‘like’. When I started taking an interest in gender identity and transgender matters, I began screenshotting comments that interested me, as a way of reminding myself what I might want to research later. On one occasion, I absent-mindedly ‘liked’ instead of screenshotting. That single ‘like’ was deemed evidence of wrongthink, and a persistent low level of harassment began.

Months later, I compounded my accidental ‘like’ crime by following Magdalen Berns on Twitter. Magdalen was an immensely brave young feminist and lesbian who was dying of an aggressive brain tumour. I followed her because I wanted to contact her directly, which I succeeded in doing. However, as Magdalen was a great believer in the importance of biological sex, and didn’t believe lesbians should be called bigots for not dating trans women with penises, dots were joined in the heads of twitter trans activists, and the level of social media abuse increased.

I mention all this only to explain that I knew perfectly well what was going to happen when I supported Maya. I must have been on my fourth or fifth cancellation by then. I expected the threats of violence, to be told I was literally killing trans people with my hate, to be called cunt and bitch and, of course, for my books to be burned, although one particularly abusive man told me he’d composted them.”

“So why am I doing this? Why speak up? Why not quietly do my research and keep my head down?

Well, I’ve got five reasons for being worried about the new trans activism, and deciding I need to speak up.

Firstly, I have a charitable trust that focuses on alleviating social deprivation in Scotland, with a particular emphasis on women and children. Among other things, my trust supports projects for female prisoners and for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse. I also fund medical research into MS, a disease that behaves very differently in men and women. It’s been clear to me for a while that the new trans activism is having (or is likely to have, if all its demands are met) a significant impact on many of the causes I support, because it’s pushing to erode the legal definition of sex and replace it with gender.

The second reason is that I’m an ex-teacher and the founder of a children’s charity, which gives me an interest in both education and safeguarding. Like many others, I have deep concerns about the effect the trans rights movement is having on both.

The third is that, as a much-banned author, I’m interested in freedom of speech and have publicly defended it, even unto Donald Trump.

The fourth is where things start to get truly personal. I’m concerned about the huge explosion in young women wishing to transition and also about the increasing numbers who seem to be detransitioning (returning to their original sex), because they regret taking steps that have, in some cases, altered their bodies irrevocably, and taken away their fertility. Some say they decided to transition after realising they were same-sex attracted, and that transitioning was partly driven by homophobia, either in society or in their families.

Most people probably aren’t aware – I certainly wasn’t, until I started researching this issue properly – that ten years ago, the majority of people wanting to transition to the opposite sex were male. That ratio has now reversed. The UK has experienced a 4400% increase in girls being referred for transitioning treatment. Autistic girls are hugely overrepresented in their numbers.

The same phenomenon has been seen in the US. In 2018,  American physician and researcher Lisa Littman set out to explore it. In an interview, she said:

‘Parents online were describing a very unusual pattern of transgender-identification where multiple friends and even entire friend groups became transgender-identified at the same time. I would have been remiss had I not considered social contagion and peer influences as potential factors.’”

MSNBC “We are a cancer “, Producer Ariana Pekary resigns, “This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic”, “Important facts or studies get buried” 

MSNBC “We are a cancer “, Producer Ariana Pekary resigns, “This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic”, “Important facts or studies get buried”

“We are a cancer and there is no cure”
“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic.”
“This cancer risks our democracy”...Ariana Pekary , former MSNBC producer

“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”... William Tecumseh Sherman

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

Those of us who care and are paying attention have known for years that MSNBC and the rest of the fake news media care more about their leftist Democrat agenda than the well being of this country and the humans being affected.

The media and Democrat mantra: “The end justifies the means.”

From Fox News August 3, 2020.

“MSNBC producer resigns from network with scathing letter: They block ‘diversity of thought’ and ‘amplify fringe voices’
Ariana Pekary said important facts and studies about the coronavirus would ‘get buried’

A former MSNBC producer wrote a scathing open letter explaining why she recently left the cable news network.

“July 24th was my last day at MSNBC. I don’t know what I’m going to do next exactly but I simply couldn’t stay there anymore,” Ariana Pekary wrote on her personal website. “My colleagues are very smart people with good intentions. The problem is the job itself. It forces skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.””

“She then quoted someone she described a “successful and insightful TV veteran” who said: “We are a cancer and there is no cure… But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”

Pekary, who described herself as an “integral member” of the MSNBC primetime show “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” used the “cancer” analogy to describe MSNBC’s coverage of the coronavirus outbreak and the racial unrest in recent months, writing: “The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings.”

“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The primary focus quickly became what Donald Trump was doing (poorly) to address the crisis, rather than the science itself. As new details have become available about antibodies, a vaccine, or how COVID actually spreads, producers still want to focus on the politics. Important facts or studies get buried,” Pekary explained.  “This cancer risks our democracy, even in the middle of a presidential election. Any discussion about the election usually focuses on Donald Trump, not Joe Biden, a repeat offense from 2016 (Trump smothers out all other coverage). Also important is to ensure citizens can vote by mail this year, but I’ve watched that topic get ignored or ‘killed’ numerous times.””

All you hear from the lying fake news media and ill informed politicians is about the uptick in Covid-19 cases.

Well duh! Of course.

From day one they have screamed about the need for more testing.

All this proves is that Covid-19 is less fatal to folks under 55 with no severe pre existing conditions and folks not in unprotected nursing homes.

For the week ending July 4, 2020, of the deaths from Covid-19, pneumonia and flu, only 1.3 % were from Covid-19!!

“Horowitz: The media’s coronavirus con: Would you rather be Florida/Texas or NY/NJ?

From listening to the mindless tropes from fact-free media headlines, one would think that all the Southern states are now at least as bad as New York was in March, if not worse; that the virus is intensifying; that it’s all taking place in states that didn’t lock down properly or long enough; and that the virus re-emerged because lockdowns were lifted, despite the funny timing of this “surge.” As such, only indefinite lockdowns can save us.

In fact, most of the surge is superficial and illusory, built on numerous accounting gimmicks. In addition, the virus is weakening more than ever; even the worst states are better than New York was; the superficial surge affects the states that were never hard-hit – both lockdown and non-lockdown states alike; the timing does not coincide with the reopening but with other factors; and the biggest factors driving it – border medical tourism, illegal alien agriculture workers, and possibly rioters – are completely ignored by the same people who are screaming “Coronavirus!” in a crowded theater.”

From Rush Limbaugh.

“COVID Deaths Plummet, But the So-Called News Remains Negative”

“The number of deaths associated with COVID-19 are way down. It’s why they’re not being reported. The game here is to scare you into siding up with a new lockdown. They want you to hear all these brand-new numbers of cases as deaths. But deaths are down. The curve was flattened.”

“RUSH: Okay. So back to the theme, we don’t know what to believe. The news is conflicting with seemingly every report. We’re being inundated with news reports daily, hourly, on the record number of cases. We are, thus, to assume that those cases equal death, either now or eventually. And yet the actual percentage, number of deaths is declining, is declining so rapidly that the CDC says we may not even be near epidemic, much less pandemic, circumstances here.

Now, contrast that. Here’s some headlines from just the past couple days in the Drive-By Media. CNN: “As Trump gaslights America about coronavirus, Republicans face a critical choice.”

NPR: “Despite rising coronavirus cases, Trump’s focus appears to be elsewhere.”

Slate.com: “The economy is not going back to normal.”

From the BBC: “Coronavirus, FDA chief refuses to back Trump’s vaccine prediction.”

CNN: “U.S. is still knee-deep in the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, Fauci says.”

New York Times: “How America lost the war on COVID-19.”

Not a single hint of optimism. Just a never-ending, relentless pessimism about COVID-19 politicized to the max to make Trump look like a fool or a sociopath. That’s the express purpose. And it extends to issues beyond the virus in terms of what’s true, what isn’t, and most of it isn’t.”

Covid-19, pneumonia and flu all diseases that should be taken seriously.

But we don’t go around screaming “the sky is falling” every flu season.

Deaths are the apples in the apples to apples comparisons and reveal the ultimate impact of these diseases.

NY Gov Cuomo responsible for nursing home deaths, Blames Trump and scrubs evidence of his incompetence, NY Mar 25 advisory scrubbed between May 5 & 8

“No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”...NY advisory March 25, 2020 scrubbed  May 5-8

NY Governor Cuomo has been denying responsibility for the many deaths in nursing homes in New York.

He has made bizarre claims that Trump bears responsibility.

That is a lie.

And even worse NY has scrubbed the advisory of March 25, 2020. The advisory that clearly contradicts the CDC guidance.

From the NY Post May 20, 2020.

“First Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed nursing homes for a widely criticized directive from his Health Department barring the facilities from turning away coronavirus-positive people — now he’s pawning it off on the White House.

Critics should “ask President Trump” about it, the governor said Wednesday, arguing that the federal government actually cooked up the mandate — and that New York was just following Washington’s lead.

“Anyone who wants to ask, ‘Why did the state do that with COVID patients in nursing homes,’ it’s because the state followed President Trump’s CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance,” Cuomo told reporters in Albany who pressed him on whether he had any regrets about the directive, which may have played a role in the deaths of thousands of nursing home residents.

“They should ask President Trump. I think that will stop the conversation,” he repeated.”

From the NY State March 25, 2020 Advisory.

“DATE: March 25, 2020
TO: Nursing Home Administrators, Directors of Nursing, and Hospital Discharge Planners
FROM: New York State Department of Health

COVID-19 has been detected in multiple communities throughout New York State. There is an urgent need to expand hospital capacity in New York State to be able to meet the demand for patients with COVID-19 requiring acute care. As a result, this directive is being issued to clarify expectations for nursing homes (NHs) receiving residents returning from hospitalization and for NHs accepting new admissions.

Hospital discharge planning staff and NHs should carefully review this guidance with all staff directly involved in resident admission, transfer, and discharges.

During this global health emergency, all NHs must comply with the expedited receipt of residents returning from hospitals to NHs. Residents are deemed appropriate for return to a NH upon a determination by the hospital physician or designee that the resident is medically stable for return.

Hospital discharge planners must confirm to the NH, by telephone, that the resident is medically stable for discharge. Comprehensive discharge instructions must be provided by the hospital prior to the transport of a resident to the NH.

No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”

COVID-19 Long-Term Care Facility Guidance
April 2, 2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are issuing new recommendations to State and local governments and long-term care facilities (also known as nursing homes) to help mitigate the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Long-term care facilities are a critical component of America’s healthcare system. They are unique, as they serve as both healthcare providers and as full-time homes for some of the most vulnerable Americans.

In recent weeks, CMS and CDC, at President Trump’s direction, have worked together to swiftly issue unprecedented targeted direction to the long-term care facility industry, including a general prohibition of visitors implemented on March 13, 2020, as well as strict infection control and other screening
recommendations. However, recent observations made by CDC and CMS experts onsite in facilities have emphasized that even more must be done to universally implement this key guidance.”

“3. Long-term care facilities should immediately implement symptom screening for all.
• In accordance with previous CMS guidance, every individual regardless of reason entering a long-term care facility (including residents, staff, visitors, outside healthcare workers, vendors, etc.) should be asked about COVID-19 symptoms and they must also have their temperature checked. An exception to this is Emergency Medical Service (EMS) workers responding to an urgent medical need. They do not have to be screened, as they are typically
screened separately.
• Facilities should limit access points and ensure that all accessible entrances have a screening station.
• In accordance with previous CDC guidance, every resident should be assessed for symptoms and have their temperature checked every day.
• Patients and residents who enter facilities should be screened for COVID-19 through testing, if available.”

Question everything including Citizen Wells.

Your your brains and common sense.

We are being bombarded with lies about the impact of Covid-19 deaths on the US.

From Citizen Wells April 4, 2020.

3.5 million”Coronavirus Covid-19 US death stats April 4, 2020, 35 states 50 or less, 19 states 15 or less, NY and NJ account for half, Geography population and/or responsibility?”

The population of a state can be a factor.

However, CT, with a population of 3.5 million has 2,718 deaths while NC, the 9th most populous state with a population of 10.5 million has 492 deaths.

The prominent difference is CT being near the epicenter, NY City.

5 states, NY, NJ, MA, PA and CT account for 61% of deaths.

9 states, NY, NJ, MA, IL, CA, PA, MI, CT and LA account for 76% of the deaths.

Most of the US has a problem, but not one of the magnitude portrayed by the fake new media.

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

The following article was in the April 23, 2020 print edition of the Greensboro News Record. The article originated in the Washington Post and was given no attribution by the News Record.

The News Record, amazingly has become even more biased as a mouthpiece for the left and continues to present fake news with a heightened level of fake attacking President Trump.

From the Washington Post and printed in the Greensboro News Record.

“I live in Britain. Thank goodness there’s no Fox News here.

The United Kingdom and the United States are both hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic. Both countries are run by populist blowhards whose larger-than-life hair and egos are inversely proportional to their regard for expertise. And both of those leaders badly botched the crucial early months, failing to prepare testing or protective equipment as the disease silently spread unchecked through populations on both sides of the Atlantic.

But there’s something very different about life in Britain in the time of the novel coronavirus: There’s no Fox News here. Thank goodness for that.

Yes, we are also dealing with horrific death tolls. And sure, there’s plenty of polarization and anger (remember Brexit?).

But at least there aren’t crowds amassing in Westminster to protest public health interventions that save lives, encouraged by TV personalities who know better than to go there themselves. There isn’t a quack “doctor” who has never had a medical license given national airtime to say the exact opposite of what every serious infectious disease expert and epidemiologist in the country is saying. There’s no local version of Fox News pundit Sean Hannity, who has systematically played down concerns over the virus. There are no rightwing comedians being given a platform to hawk unproven drugs on television. And the prime minister isn’t responding to cable TV news by calling on his supporters to “liberate” Birmingham from the very measures that his administration officially supports. ”

“This is tragedy masquerading as farce. Fox News firebrands Ingraham, Hannity and Judge Jeanine Pirro are putting lives at risk. TV personalities who are paid millions of dollars a year are encouraging ordinary people to do things that could get them killed. Pirro said, “God bless them” in reference to the protesters. She implied that churches and synagogues should defy orders to not hold services. If she really supports the protests and illegal services, what better way than to attend with her relatives? There’s already disturbing evidence that some Fox News viewers listened to the reckless playing down of the virus during February and early March and took risks that ended their lives. “He watched Fox, and believed it was under control,” one family member of a deceased man explained. This isn’t the only evidence that Republicans who watch Fox News are more likely to believe the threat from the virus is exaggerated. The same risks apply to the “liberate” protests. Mark my words: Some of the people bunching together to chant “Give me liberty or give me death” without masks will die. But in the meantime, they’ll also infect innocent people and put doctors and nurses at higher risk of dying, too. So much for rainbows and Thursday night clapping.

The lockdowns are producing severe economic pain. Nobody wants them to continue. But the economic damage is being caused by a public health emergency. Saving the economy and saving lives requires the same strategy. If everything opens up prematurely, as many Fox News personalities suggest, we’ll be back at square one.

When all this is over, I hope Americans will have learned this lesson from Britain: A deadly pandemic is destructive enough.

We don’t need the dangerous nonsense spewed by Fox News to make it worse.”

Brian Klass is not listed as being a physician and is woefully uninformed on the information the US was being provided by China and WHO in January and February of this year on the Covid-19 virus.

Furthermore, from Professor Klass’ countryman George Bernard Shaw:

“those who candothose who can’tteach.”

My ancestors left England and Europe centuries ago. I am forever grateful.

Recently Citizen Wells called out the News Record for exceeding the fake news level of the Washington Post.

Greensboro News Record fake news on Trump and WHO worse than Washington Post, NR omitted truth from WAPO article, News Record awarded 5 Orwells

“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”… William Tecumseh Sherman

“The function of the press is very high. It is almost Holy. It ought to serve as a forum for the people, through which the people may know freely what is going on. To misstate or suppress the news is a breach of trust.” …. Louis D. Brandeis

Let me be clear.

I do not subscribe to the left mouthpiece fake news Greensboro News Record.

I did deliver and collect for them when I was 12.

I do intend to piss on their metaphorical grave when they go under which should be soon.

Imagine being more biased and fake news then the Washington Post.

Here is the most recent example.

From the Greensboro News Record print edition April 20, 2020 quoting the Washington Post.

“Americans at WHO told Trump about virus threat

More than a dozen U.S. researchers, physicians and public health experts, many of them from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, were working full time at the Geneva headquarters of the World Health Organization as the novel coronavirus emerged late last year and transmitted real-time information about its discovery and spread in China to the Trump administration, according to U.S. and international officials.

A number of CDC staffers are regularly detailed to work at WHO in Geneva as part of a rotation that has operated for years. Senior Trump-appointed health officials also consulted regularly at the highest levels with the WHO as the crisis unfolded, the officials said.

The presence of so many U.S. officials undercuts President Donald Trump’s charge that the WHO’s failure to communicate the extent of the threat, born of a desire to protect China, is largely responsible for the rapid spread of the virus in the United States.

The administration has also sharply criticized the Chinese government for withholding information.

But the president, who often touts a personal relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping and is reluctant to inflict damage on a trade deal with Beijing, appears to see the WHO as a more defenseless target.”

From the Washington Post and left out of the News Record article:

“”In a statement provided to The Washington Post after online publication of this article, Caitlin B. Oakley, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, confirmed that in January, HHS had 17 staff members, including 16 from the CDC, at the WHO, “working on a variety of programs, including covid-19 and Ebola.” She emphasized that the staff members were not “decision-makers.”

“Furthermore, I’d add that just because you have Americans embedded in WHO providing technical assistance does not change the information you are getting from WHO leadership,” Oakley said in an email. “We have learned now that WHO information was incorrect and relied too heavily on China.” Questioning why the WHO “did not press China harder,” she said that “the lack of transparency aided and abided by WHO leadership hampered understanding of the virus and delayed the global response.”

China “stalled for weeks” in allowing WHO experts to visit in January and February, Oakley said, “and the WHO never criticized them for the delay and even praised China for its ‘transparency.’ ””

.

.

“A G-7 statement issued after the call supported the need to review the WHO’s performance. “We cannot have business as usual and must ask the hard questions about how [the pandemic] came about,” said British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, standing in for virus-stricken Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But he stressed that a post-crisis review should be “driven by science.”

In announcing the funding cutoff, Trump said last week that the WHO parroted incorrect Chinese statements and “failed to investigate credible reports . . . that conflicted directly with the Chinese government’s official accounts.” He criticized “the inability of the WHO to obtain virus samples” that China continues to refuse to supply.

A Senate aide who has tracked the issue said “there was clearly an effort” by China “not to provide transparent data and information” in the early stages of the outbreak.

“We were looking to WHO to provide that information, and they did not. It was unclear as to whether they didn’t get that transparency from the Chinese, or that they chose not to share what they did get under pressure from the Chinese,” said the aide, who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.”

The Washington Post bears some responsibility for the News Record fake news. Indeed their heading is misleading:

“Americans at World Health Organization transmitted real-time information about coronavirus to Trump administration”

For what really happened, examine the timeline of WHO and US interaction here.

From The Epoch Times:

“The WHO has said that Chinese authorities first informed it about the outbreak on Dec. 31, 2019. While that would have been a golden opportunity to mitigate the spread of the virus worldwide, the WHO conveyed none of its information to the world that day.”

“On Jan. 2, The Epoch Times reported on the efforts of the CCP to block information about the outbreak and the high levels of anxiety spreading throughout the city.

A Wuhan Health Commission directive prohibited all medical facilities in the city “from publicizing medical information without permission,” and online discussions about the outbreak were quickly censored. On Jan. 1, Wuhan police said that they had detained eight locals who had spread “rumors” about the outbreak.

As it turned out, at least some of the suppressed whistleblowers were doctors who had tried to warn colleagues about the new virus.

Panicked locals cleared Wuhan pharmacies of surgical masks and over-the-counter preventive Chinese medicines. China expert and physician Tang Jingyuan warned a government coverup might exacerbate the spread of the virus.

Meanwhile, the WHO remained silent.”

Giuliani exposes details and reach of Ukraine corruption, Bidens Senator Graham et al motives, Journalist Chanel Rion preemptively attacked

Giuliani exposes details and reach of Ukraine corruption, Bidens Senator Graham et al motives, Journalist Chanel Rion preemptively attacked

“The lady doth protest too much, methinks”… “Hamlet”, William Shakespeare

“One of the downstream consequences of Rudy Giuliani investigating the Ukraine corruption and money laundering operation to U.S. officials is that it ends up catching Senator Graham.”…Conservative Treehouse

“”You’re a traitor!” yelled the boy. “You’re a thought criminal!””…George Orwell, “1984”

 

I knew this story was important days ago.

Why? Because of the preemptive ad hominem attacks against journalist Chanel Rion and Rudy Giuliani when it was discovered they were doing investigations in the Ukraine.

Refer to Shakespeare and Orwell.

From the Conservative Treehouse.

“Former Ukraine Prosecutor Shokin: Joe Biden “Outraged We Seized Burisma Assets”, Could No Longer Pay His Son…”

“Rudy Giuliani traveled to Ukraine with OAN investigative journalist Chanel Rion.  The U.S. media are going absolutely bananas after finding out Giuliani is now gathering even more information about Joe and Hunter Biden’s corrupt endeavors within Ukraine.

In this interview former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin spoke to OAN about Joe Biden’s direct role in getting his office to stop investigating his son Hunter.  The problem for Joe Biden was when Shokin seized all of Burisma’s assets the Ukranian gas company could no longer pay his son Hunter Biden.  So the vice president demanded Shokin be removed.

When you combine this interview with the damning public statements delivered by the Ukraine prosecutor that replaced Shokin, Yuriy Lutsenko, things really get troublesome for Joe Biden, the Obama administration and Adam Schiff.

Prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko stated that after he replaced Shokin he was visited by U.S. State Dept. official George Kent and Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch; they provided a list of corruption cases the Ukraine government was not permitted to follow.

Prosecutor Lutsenko dropping specific corruption cases was critical because that allowed/enabled a process of laundering money back to U.S. officials.  [SEE HERE]

The potential for this background story to become part of a larger impeachment discovery is what has the U.S. media going bananas against Rudy Giuliani.

Senator Lindsey Graham is directly connected to the group of U.S. politicians who were participating in the influence network within Ukraine.  One of the downstream consequences of Rudy Giuliani investigating the Ukraine corruption and money laundering operation to U.S. officials is that it ends up catching Senator Graham.

Hence, earlier today Senator Graham said he would not permit Senate impeachment testimony that touched on this corrupt Ukraine aspect.

In essence Senator Graham is fearful that too much inquiry into what took place with Ukraine from 2014 through 2016 will expose his own participation and effort along with former Ambassador Marie Yovanovich.”
