The days rolled by last week and the strange case of the Assange affair kept me going back to my place on the net and putting up new content.  It wasn't just that I'm a comment dog who can't be on the internet without wanting to write something somewhere.  (Try it sometime if you don't write comments, see if you can make just one.)  And it wasn't simple outrage though I've plenty of that.  It was more personal.

Before Snowden and before Wikileaks I had become K-Dog.  It was early on when I became K-Dog.  The name was given to me by an anonymous commenter who had liked something I had written.  I was busy in those days.  I had come to the realization (actually horrible awareness) that smart people were not working the worlds problems.  No think tanks in universities coming up with plans to adapt the world to a future without oil or a climate.  No secret government bases with giant machines to scrub C02 out of the atmosphere or refine zero-point energy.  Nothing at all. 

Turns out if you think about the world's problems at all you right there with the smartest people in the room.  The common herd won't contemplate that which is beyond their vision.  Not even won't but can't!  Turns out be deep-seated psychological reasons for this cognitive black hole, and even that would not be so bad; if such people also did not vote.

Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives… and to the "good life", whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.”  <== Hunter S. Thompson
Let's toast to being born at time when there was plenty of sugar in the worlds petri-dish for all the yeast to thrive.
The seventies had led me to believe that people were working the earth's problems but it turned out the 70's had led to the brain-dead 80's during which time the seeds for the absolute annihilation of mankind were planted.  America's ability to adapt was about to be destroyed. 
During the 80's and 90's electronics were refined so mass surveillance became possible and those of the common herd who had power could not resist the temptation to use it.  It is not in human nature to ignore a benifit of technology.  There are deep-seated psychological reasons for this it turns out.  Then came 9-11 a plan for a new American Century.  Neocons took control and America became a different place.  Mesmerized by shock and awe few people noticed.
Surveilance is one thing, and the instant reaction is to think no big deal but, it is a big deal.  Surveillance brings management with it, the temptation was not resisted.  James Howard Kunstler had honed in on the collapse movement and was writing about depletion issues.  I began to comment on his blog.  Long story short I soon realized that some of the commenters at his blog had super powers.  A few names needed no sleep.  And following I.P. Addys from his site that a tracking service plugin provided I learned that most of the identities who were commenting on his blog were using 'the Department of Defense Network' to get to the website.  Actual origins appeared to be from every small military base in the country.  America had become a country silently being brainwashed by ideologies of the most ossified and conservative kind.  The ability of America to adapt to change had been taken away and our doom was sealed.
I did not have a website at the time.  I appeared to be someone who could just be  rolled over using a bit of terror.  Gang stalking and electronic harassment of many kinds.  It worked for a while but I adapted and survived.  I registered my website and now with Julian's Arrest I'm ready because the same people who want him were the ones who were harassing me.  It is personal.  Vault 7 personal.  Being followed by men in black suits personal and this being the Diner I'll have a small taste of:
"La vengeance est un plat qui se mange froide"  (Revenge is a dish best served cold)
I have a picture of one of the suits, I could post it but this article is not about me.  I will only give a link to it. The pic came from a website he asked me to visit when we met in person.  A website intended to put the fear of god into me.  I downloaded it. 
I'm writing to do a small part in getting the promise of democracy working again or something like that.  Because we don't have it now.  We have only the illusion of it.
From my website:
No Place For a Cat

I haven't seen the internet controlled like this since BP got on top of their Public Relations and spun the Gulf Oil Spill the way they wanted it spun.  No news on Julian Assange.  It took some sleuthing to find out he is now at Belmarsh prison.    This from 'Free Malasia Today'.  Good luck finding anything in the American press.

"Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is being held in London’s high-security Belmarsh prison which has housed some of Britain’s most notorious inmates, a legal source told AFP Friday.
















Aerial View














The prison in southeast London became one of the country’s best-known jails after Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs and career criminal Charlon Bronson – dubbed “the most violent prisoner in Britain” – were held there.












Main Gate











Opened in 1991 next to Woolwich Crown Court, it has frequently been used in high-profile national security cases."

From another Source:

Belmarsh, built in 1991 and located in southeast London, gained notoriety in the wake of the 9/11 attacks when foreigners were detained in the prison without being formally charged, leading some to call it 'Britain's Guantanamo Bay.'

What is it all about? This affidavit was unsealed Monday.

It is alleged that Julian Assange conspired to help Chelsea Manning commit computer intrusion of a classified military network. That's it thats all. Real reasons of course are not for public consumption. You can find out about that if you read on.

The world, America darkens with time. Ignorance is celebrated and cultivated in a cultural tower of babble that pushes truth behind shadows where it can no longer be seen. Things were not always this bad. It was clear forty years ago that power corrupts and the only legitimate power is power that is open to scrutiny. This awareness has eroded. The Vietnam war made the need for scrutiny as clear as the sight of a high school football hero returning home in a body bag. But America forgot. Graft, theft, racism, and corruptions of all kinds are possible when doors can't be opened for a peek inside. America forgot that. Now America wants to kill a messenger who's crime is that he wanted you to know stuff.

The American troll army pushes the meme that Julian has nothing to worry about. He will quietly be deported to Australia they all say. They also don't want you to know about the affidavit. They prefer you believe in cat feces on walls and other fables. They absolutely don't want you to know that Vault 7 tools are used on American citizens.

Yet only misbehaving dogs have to worry about such things and you don't misbehave.

And that can stay true until the rules change and then they come for you. In the meantime enjoy the show. Here is something entertaining. Seven years after the fact and you likely still don't know the names of the women or the circumstances but if hating is your thing enjoy a thick slice of 'Me Too'.

She Accused Assange of Rape. Give Her a Chance for Justice

If you enjoy the article too much I'd like to remind you that nowhere does Heather Barr mention the name of 'the woman' anywhere. International extradition for crimes where victims are not named is not Ok IMHO. I think someone with even a third of a brain should be able to figure out why. The devil is in the details, or in this case lack of them. Heather also does not say that one of the women has vanished and that the other woman is connected to the CIA. Heather had many years to learn this and that this sort of thing is very much 'her thing' is very clear, so I think if you were a baby Heather would steal your candy.

Read my stuff from last week and you will learn the names. (I did not need seven years to learn them.) Somebody clue Heather in. Please.


Thursday April 11th 2019: (with more recent edits)

Breaking News, The arrest. I stand in solidarity. All four paws. (Europeans will not have to look it up to find out what solidarity means. Most Americans will need to do exactly that.)

10 x 10 bare concrete walls, 24/7 florescent lighting, and a room thirty feet below ground. Comparatively the embassy had to be a palace. Moreno is a pig. Somebody follow the money please.

Update$$: A 4.2 billion loan (numbers vary) guarantee from the International Monetary Fund, it seems.

Below are the honeypots. One has vanished off the face of the earth.

I recall at the end of the 1981 movie "Body Heat" William Hurt playing the male lead character Ned Racine sits in prison. Ned receives the High School yearbook of Matty Walker his vanished female lead in the movie in his prison mail. He tears the brown wrapper off and begins to read. Matty is a femme fatale played by Kathleen Turner in this movie who has duped Ned into killing her husband for insurance money. That's why Ned sits in prison.

In the yearbook is written the line, if I can recall it right, in response to the age old High School yearbook question of 'what do you want to be in life', Matty had answered.

'To be rich and live in a far away land'

A line something to that effect. So what is the parallel? Matty had vanished with funds.

Now Trump can put out any fake news he wants.

WikiLeaks official Defense Fund

( 46 BC ) At Ceasars triumph, Vercingetorix was marched through the Eternal City, then strangled at the Tullianum.

I like the story of Vercingetorix’s men who at least in a movie spirited his body from the place of execution in the middle of the night to bury it with dignity in the woods. Likely at great risk. Before his execution I think Vercingetorix had been in prison for seven years. I could be wrong.

Obama got Osama and the golden puffball will also be taking a triumph. Unearned riches if ever there were.

"Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one."Thomas Paine

Donald Trump, praised WikiLeaks often during his 2016 presidential campaign yet now he just said WikiLeaks is not his thing. “I know nothing about WikiLeaks,” Trump said “It’s not my thing.”

    Seven years is long enough for people to forget and make up all sorts of stories. What is Assange arrested for?

    For wanting you to see this.

    Should the rampant gaslighting make you forget.

    If I make an edit here in my HTML pile of text it takes about the same time as it takes for a hellfire missile to hit a target as it does for my edit to appear as a change on this page once I hit 'fire'. Just like a goddamn video game kiddies play. I just turned this green and it took the same time for me to see the change as it did for the three hellfire missiles to hit their targets in this video.

    My wierdness with Vercingetorix? I'll allow Chris Hedges to explain. It is about empire:

    "The Trump administration will seek to try Assange on charges that he conspired with Manning in 2010 to steal the Iraq and Afghanistan war logs obtained by WikiLeaks. The half a million internal documents leaked by Manning from the Pentagon and the State Department, along with the 2007 video of U.S. helicopter pilots nonchalantly gunning down Iraqi civilians, including children, and two Reuters journalists, provided copious evidence of the hypocrisy, indiscriminate violence, and routine use of torture, lies, bribery and crude tactics of intimidation by the U.S. government in its foreign relations and wars in the Middle East. Assange and WikiLeaks allowed us to see the inner workings of empire—the most important role of a press—and for this they became empire’s prey."

    Empire is evil with patience. Enemies of empire are dealt with after humanity screams move on. It is not fair but perhaps Julian has another service to do. There is much evil. The existence of the rampant gaslight shows this. Something makes it shine so bright. Julian's job may only be half done.

    Too bad, for Julian deserves a break. But evil is alive well and flourishing. I pray evil now bites more than it can chew so that it is exposed in all it's orangeness.

    Trumps idea of MAGA exposed. Preparing America for a future this does not do! It won't do at all. Who was the guy who said 'The buck stops here'? He is on the Eisenhower Dollar. I hope he is right but the buck these days seems to be made of golden Teflon. To expect Trump to do more than resurrect the Neocon Bush Playbook was fantasy. The link is to ten year old news true, but it has the freshest of ink.

    Ink more fresh there can't be.

    I've learned more according to this AP article. The American indictment is in response to what is known as the “Vault 7 leak” in 2017. Vault 7 comprises thousands of pages of documents revealing details about CIA tools used to break into computers, cellphones and other consumer electronics used by targeted individuals.

    I can speak to the veracity of the contents of Vault 7 because I have had my personal electronics targeted by the same tools when I became a targeted individual myself for discovering details about behind the scene government internet manipulations.

    These tools I can attest are not used exclusively by our CIA but are a feature of all agencies which use American fusion centers. They are used by the FBI and Homeland Security to terrorise and deal with American Citizens who dare to investigate how deep our domestic spying apparatus goes. I can attest that rabbit hole is very deep from my personal experience. As I make an allegation I'll be specific.

    They pulled a boner. Mike went to High School with one of the 'spooks' who shadowed me five years ago. This spook was in a coffee shop Mike owned when I was came in. The spook was in his shiny black suit and blinding bleached white shirt sans tie, their uniform. Until you learn to turn your phone off they frequently get places before you do. The same spook had been in the coffeehouse a few months before and had told Mike, the owner, about his new job with the TSA.

    One of the things they can do is control your Netflix viewing on your T.V.

    It can and will mess with your head. When they pop your screen to scenes of families getting brutally murdered it will affect you. Having the controls go to exactly the right spot for the best dramatic effect to freak you out the most is very Steven Kingish and I believe 'they' enjoy 'getting the bad guy' way too much. It really does mess you up, it along with gang-stalking is a means of control which leaves no trace. I experienced the Full Monty. It is not called 'targeted' for nothing. And what they can do with phones when they are trying to drive you out of your mind is impressive and scary in a leg shivering sort of way. Your heart will do a years worth of thumping in a month before they finish with you, or you adjust. I adjusted but part of me will always be pissed and it takes more than a month to adjust. It takes many months.

    Oceania in spades. Rats in my face. They'd have you believe Eurasia influences your elections but you have no idea of the Orwellian nightmare America became before Trump was even an orange blob on the Oval Office horizon. What happened to me happened on Obama's watch. Since then I've been waiting for Trump to amp it up and wonder what has taken him so long. The boy has toys. Meanwhile the thoughtstopper of 'It Can't Happen Here' echoes the common awareness.
