The Times has always been a newspaper by, and for, the elite, but by squeezing out the few alternative voices that you once employed, it no longer publishes those articles that illuminate and connect us to a world outside the Beltway, or beyond Harvard Square.

“[The U.K.] should be focusing on trying to stop this terrible conflict, not assisting the Saudi government. British companies should be very cautious indeed in what they are supporting. Yemen is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and getting worse by the day.” – Anna Macdonald, director of a global arms-control organization

Israeli authorities attempt to steal the children of a lawyer who saved others’ lives

Lawyer Meir Mickey Givati

Marianne Azizi writes:

The State of Israel was founded on the theft of children. The Old Testament relates how children have been sacrificed: Joseph was sold, Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son. Stories go as far back as history books began. Seventy years ago Yemenite children were taken to Israel for adoption or experimentation – this is still headline news as protesters demand apologies and answers.

Now in 2018 the practice of taking children from parents continues. In 2017, the Israeli government admitted to doubling the number of children removed from their homes from 10,000 the previous year to 20,000. Even more embarrassing is the admission that the authorities have actually lost some of the children, and hundreds are unaccounted for after being taken.

The lack of rights for children is astonishing in an allegedly democratic state, with a child being snatched every 30 minutes by the ‘Welfare’ authorities.

Lawyers who are fighting to save children in the juvenile system face daily struggles against the corruption of the courts – the collusion between doctors, psychologists, social workers and judges to keep children locked away from their biological parents. Experts have expressed concerns, claiming that a massive 80 per cent of children do not need to be removed from their homes.

There are insufficient words to properly describe how the Israeli establishment murders a man from within, first by taking his children, then his mind and his soul…

One such lawyer, Meir Mickey Givati, has been fighting to save children for almost a decade. He sees abuse daily: children drugged on Ritalin and Risperdal, beaten, raped and brainwashed. As an Orthodox Jew with strong connections to Chabad, he can hardly be described as anti-Semitic. In the last 12 months, an unprecedented attack was launched by the Israeli establishment to destroy his life, in order to prevent him from continuing his work and exposing the illegal practices carried out daily against children.

The sequence of events is almost unbelievable, but the only surprise for him was the speed in which his whole life and family were dismantled.

There are insufficient words to properly describe how the Israeli establishment murders a man from within, first by taking his children, then his mind and his soul – a practice familiar in many communist and totalitarian states throughout history. It takes everything that creates a man, and systematically destroys it.

The warning of the attention he was under emerged when he was invited in March 2018 to the police for an investigation. Having an exemplary career and with no criminal record, he attended in confidence. After three hours, the police were unable to hold him further, because they needed special papers to hold a lawyer. However, within two hours they were back with the papers, and he was taken and held for six hours for interrogation.

He was told he could never emulate another human rights lawyer in Israel, a man already ‘removed’ by the state. He was also told that he must break off all connections with the author of this article. Then came a chilling warning, that as a man with five children he should reconsider his working practices in the interest of his family life. A No Exit order was placed him – without a judge. 

He realised that he had been under surveillance since at least November 2017, when he had been in New York visiting clients, with another separate trip to Italy in February 2018. 

It was to take only three further months before his entire life was shattered. First, he hired an expert in the field of computer hacking and was informed that his office had over 21 tracking devices in his computer systems, and printouts showed that he had over 20 computers linked to his router, with fake Google pages being planted into his computer to track the subjects he had been researching. It sounded like the stuff of James Bond movies.

I originally wondered if he was just being paranoid, but after a day of research, I realised it had been an understatement. His Facebook was being hacked almost hourly, with false posts being written. His WhatsApp was fully compromised, and even the call recorder application had phone calls with one side recorded and then disappearing on the second playback.

His router, laptop and mainframe computer were fully targeted, and even the lawsuits he had prepared were open to view by the malicious forces watching him.

Givati recalls a day when I went to his office to interview him, noticing that we had both been watched for almost the whole day. Originally, he had assumed it was social workers, but it later turned out to be special forces.

I laughed at the fact that I was ‘a person of interest’ – I had always known that being a juvenile lawyer meant I would be marked. I knew that I would be exposed to child trafficking, drugs that are forced on children, helpless families, the abuse of power by the ‘Welfare’ [authorities] over low-income families. I knew the judges would make it difficult for me to win, and for this reason I focused on the process, the procedures which were vital to fair decisions. I had been fighting arbitrary removal of children from their homes for years, and my own children are a priority for me to be kept safe from the authorities.

On 22 June, out of the blue, after an argument at home, he found himself at a police station, facing the second ever interrogation of his life. After waiting six hours, he discovered he had been accused of 15 false offences: beating his wife and children, aggression and abuse, allegedly for the whole 12 years of his marriage. Though accustomed to dealing with hundreds of men of similarly charged men as clients, he was unprepared for the events and what would come. Within 30 minutes of his own questioning, the police informed him the file would not be pursued, and he was free to leave – but ordered to leave his home for 30 days. 

Within three hours of his release, a file was submitted to the courts, with proof this had been written earlier and prepared. In messages to his estranged wife, she was informed that the court and judge had been selected, and the judgment already made – all of this confirmed to her while she was giving over five hours of unfounded and false evidence. A protection order had been placed against him, a No Exit Order to leave the country – preventing him from visiting his European clients, and thus preventing him from earning any money. The same judge who had known him as a fighter against child abuse, ordered judgments in line with the ‘Welfare’ authorities’ methods – assessments, keep away from children and home, etc. 

The authorities’ plans began to unfold: false clients, phone calls every minute. His own wife had been compromised, and had befriended various ‘Welfare’ people as well as activist friends of dubious reputation.

Mr Givati had been unaware, that while paying for an accountancy course, his wife had actually been secretly training to become a social worker.

Lifting his No Exit Order to enable his international work to continue, with a deposit of almost a third of a million in assets and a cash deposit, his Facebook hacked yet again with a death threat written on his page, Mr Givati decided to leave the country. However, upon arrival at the airport he was refused exit on suspicion of both attempted murder and suicide. Suddenly the tax authority showed an interest in his inheritances.

Held for over three hours, he was released after showing that his Facebook had been hacked and reported as such. He left the country the next day with full knowledge of the police. His was not an escape – he was merely leaving to continue his overseas work while the Israeli judicial system was in recess.

More files were created, including a ‘dossier’ from his computer with real file names and bank account information, but with fabricated information added – this time involving his family, particularly his father. Sent anonymously, it included his court applications regarding his wife and children, unfiled but ready.

A new file was submitted, claiming economic violence against his own family – despite paying over $5,000 in just three weeks to cater for his children. It appears that an overdose of money is also classed as violence, and a recommendation was made by the authorities to place his children in a shelter – from a luxury villa to merely one room. The Battered Woman Shelter programme is another shell scheme under investigation by several journalists. The hacking continued in his office computer, and Facebook Messenger. Every message was read and forwarded to his family, including his clients’ messages.

The bailiff office received six files to confirm a permanent No Exit Order, including a file for only six shekels for toll roads on Route 6, paid for within days. Yet that was enough to place a permanent No Exit Order on him!

His address overseas was discovered, right down to the street name and number.  No privacy, no ‘escape’. The revelations of hacks and false files in court have been happening daily for over a month. Threatening calls were made, declaring he would face complaints in the Israeli Bar Association, with details given to him of goods he owned, and falsified letters written by him, in locations he had never been to.

The aim is to persuade him, using psychological warfare, that he is making it all up, or perhaps mentally unstable, framing him with false crimes. He is handling some high profile cases of people who have also been targeted by the Israeli state.

If there is such a thing as good news, the source of the hacking has been found. The message is that it is from a very high place, three organisations are involved, with experts now investigating whether or not the state is funding or sponsoring this takedown before it will be revealed. It is now a game of cat and mouse – with millions being spent on silencing him. 

Mr Givati is certainly not alone, but his associations with key high profile activists in Israel has made him a major target and only the publicity will help him.

It must also be noted that the writer of this article has also been targeted, both in Israel and in her own country – with a friend questioned and told by the UK authorities she is now a list of “suspect of terrorists known to the State of Israel”.

The so-called “White Helmets” have “committed a huge number of crimes against the Syrian people,” said Vanessa Beeley who, along with Eva Bartlett, exposed the purported humanitarian activists as aligned with al-Qaida fighters in Syria. Israel and others are lobbying for hundreds of alleged White Helmets to be evacuated from Syria and repatriated in the West.

Rwandan Dictator Paul Kagame’s Paranoia Strikes Deep

NOVANEWS
Rwandan Dictator Paul Kagame’s Paranoia Strikes Deep
Rwandan Dictator Paul Kagame’s Paranoia Strikes Deep

“Dissidents say Kagame shuttered houses of worship because they were the last spaces in Rwanda where people felt safe from his totalitarian grip.”

He’s the President of Rwanda and the current President of the African Union, feted by the Brookings Institute , one of the most venerable ideological pillars of US capital interests. So why is Paul Kagame manifesting more and more signs of paranoia? Let’s consider just a few possibilities:

Assassination rumors

The Indian Ocean Newsletter reports that French intelligence warned Yoweri Museveni that Kagame was plotting to have his plane shot down over Rwanda, causing him to cancel a flight from Uganda to Burundi for a summit. If said plot had come to fruition, it would have been Kagame’s second presidential assassination by plane shoot-down over Rwanda. In 1994, his men shot down the plane carrying Rwandan Hutu President Juvenal Habyarimana and Burundian Hutu President Cyprien Ntaryamira from Arusha, Tanzania, to Kigali, Rwanda. That shoot-down triggered the infamous hundred days of ethnic massacres known as the Rwandan Genocide.

Is the claim credible? No hard evidence has been proffered. The Indian Ocean Newsletter is one of several regional reports included in Africa Intelligence Report, an online journal that describes itself as “the first information site on Africa for a professional audience” and charges substantial fees for all site access or per-article access. Credible or no, Kagame has his online attack dogs busy denying it.

“Kagame has been kidnapping or assassinating Rwandan refugees in Uganda.”

Are relations between Kagame and Museveni tense? No doubt about that. The two have been both partners and competitors in crime for many years, with recent emphasis on the competition. The most notorious moment of this partnership occurred in 2000 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where invading Rwandan and Ugandan forces fought each other over the gold and diamond smuggling trade.

More recently Kagame has been in the habit of kidnapping or assassinating Rwandan refugees in Uganda whom he considers his political enemies, triggering Museveni’s recent crackdown  on Rwandan spies. He’s also been trying to force Rwandans who’ve crossed into Uganda fleeing famine to return home. He knows from firsthand experience that significant numbers of refugees outside Rwanda may return as an insurgency, maybe even an insurgency backed by Uganda, like his own.

Speaking of insurgencies

An armed insurgency against Kagame has been reported. All the Rwandan exiles that I know seem to believe this, but no one knows or wants to say how serious it might be. My own guess is that an insurgency could succeed only if significant numbers of Kagame’s own troops turned against him. He has been seen wearing a bulletproof vest in Rwanda. A video  identified as Rwandan insurgents in training appeared on Facebook, where it was shared 237 [263 NOW] times.

Political prisoner Victoire Ingabire in peril

According to her political party, the United Democratic Forces of Rwanda, internationally celebrated Rwandan political prisoner Victoire Ingabire was moved into a cell with a former military officer whom she feared would kill her. The party said that the threatening cellmate has been removed for now. Ingabire attempted to run against Kagame in the 2010 presidential election but went to prison instead. The African Union’s highest court, the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights, ruled  that Ingabire should be freed because Rwanda denied her the rights guaranteed by the Rwandan Constitution, but the current President of the African Union scorns its highest court. In 2010, Victoire Ingabire’s courage radically changed international perception of the Kagame regime, exposing him as a totalitarian military ruler and war criminal. Congolese historian and activist Bénédicte Kumbi Njoko calls her African sister “a force of nature.”

7000 Rwandan churches and mosques shut down

Kagame has shut down 7000 Rwandan churches and mosques during the first six months of this year.This is not a matter of rumor or speculation; it’s reported by Reuters, AP, the BBC, and Christian journals including Christianity Today Baptist Press Religion News Service World Watch Monitor , and Christian Persecution News .

One hundred twenty-three religious leaders have gone missing, pastors have been imprisoned, and Human Rights Watch has been expelled from the country—again. Rwanda’s population of 12 million is roughly 60% Roman Catholic, 26% Protestant, 11% Seventh-day Adventist, and 3% Muslim, so it’s safe to say that the vast majority of those targeted are Christians of one sort or another.

This has caused shock around the world, and in the US Senate and State Department, making it one of Kagame’s most puzzling paranoid expressions yet.

Last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared in the Senate, where Arizona Senator Jeff Flake  asked him, “The country of Rwanda, right now, and you may be familiar with this because of this week’s focus on religious freedom, has indicated a move towards severe restrictions on religious freedom, particularly from outside groups. What are the plans of the State Department to let them know that that is not in their interest or ours?”

Pompeo responded, “Senator, I share your concerns. I’ll need to get back to you in terms of what actions we think will fit. I know we’ll call it out. I know we’ll label it for what it is. We do need to see. It is tragic and anyway, I share your concerns. It’s a huge challenge for us.”

Indeed. Rwanda has been a longstanding US ally, military proxy, and geostrategic lynchpin in East Africa, Central Africa, and the rest of the African continent.

Didn’t Kagame know that even his staunchest defenders couldn’t give this a positive spin?”

How will Christians and Christian Zionists react to this? Paul Kagame’s Rwanda has been hand in glove with Israel ever since he seized power in 1994.Both claim victim’s license to invade their neighbors—Congo and Palestine—and the US has staunchly supported that license politically, militarily, and financially. The US is Rwanda’s top bilateral donor .

Mike Pompeo attended last week’s Christian persecution exhibition in Washington, DC, which prominently featured the case of Rwanda, alongside those of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Turkey, Libya, Sudan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. So did Sam Brownback, the Trump Administration official assigned to look after the interests of Christians around the world, although his actual title is “Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.” The Kansas Republican extremist is the first Catholic to hold the position. He is also a prominent member of “The Fellowship,” aka “The Family,” which was the subject of Jeff Sharlet’s book The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power . Sharlet characterized Brownback himself as “God’s Senator” in a frightening 2006 Rolling Stoneprofile.

Paul Kagame’s Rwanda has been hand in glove with Israel ever since he seized power in 1994.”

David Himbara, former economic advisor to Paul Kagame, and Justin Bahunga, Spokesman for the Rwandan Democratic Forces, and others say that Kagame shut down the churches, using building code violations as an excuse, because they were the last spaces in Rwanda where people felt safe from his totalitarian grip.

Wasn’t this an extraordinarily stupid move, especially given the theocratic tendencies of the Trump Administration? Didn’t Kagame know that even his staunchest defenders, Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, couldn’t give this a positive spin? I asked David Himbara, who responded, “Totalitarian regimes aren’t always smart. They tend to shoot first and ask questions after.”

It’s hard to imagine the State Department and the Pentagon cutting Kagame loose while he’s still of greater use than not, but how much longer will that be? And what will it take to tip the balance?

Freedom Rider: Russiagate Covers Up Black Vote Theft

NOVANEWS
Freedom Rider: Russiagate Covers Up Black Vote Theft
Freedom Rider: Russiagate Covers Up Black Vote Theft

“The Democrats want our votes, but if we aren’t allowed to vote at all they pretend not to know.”

“They want me on, as long as I talk about Russia. And I said, ‘What about black voters?’ ‘Well that’s race issues.’ The reason I’m allowed on MSNBC is because I’m with people like Joy Reid and Al Sharpton and others. Where’s the pale faced guys? Because they consider the vote theft issue a racial issue, and that ain’t their viewers.”
Greg Palast

The corporate media and their friends in the Democratic Party are whipping up so much hatred and disinformation that it is almost impossible to discuss Russia or its president, Vladimir Putin. Putin is a multi-purpose villain. He is blamed for the vote theft conducted by white Americans against black people that resulted in the Donald Trump presidency.

Because so much of the ginned up vitriol is conducted on orders from the Democratic Party, black people have joined in spreading the misinformation. The headline for a recent article in The Root proclaimed , “Evidence Shows Hackers Changed Votes in the 2016 Election but No One Will Admit It.” The alleged hackers in the story are said to be Russian. But apparently too much was alleged in this piece because The Rootlater removed the article with a disclaimer . “This story was an opinion piece asserting there was evidence that hackers changed votes in the 2016 election. However, a number of statements in the piece are disputed by experts. As a result, we have pulled it down for editorial review, and will update it once that review is completed.”

“Black people have joined in spreading the misinformation.”

What is clear is that the Republicans stole the 2016 election for Donald Trump with a combination of voter suppression and outright theft directed against black people. Trump supposedly won the state of Michigan) by a 10,000 vote margin, but more than 75,000 votes  cast in majority black cities Flint and Detroit went uncounted because of “malfunctioning” voting machines. An additional 449,000 voters in that state were purged from the rolls through the infamous Crosscheck  system.

The National Security Agency (NSA) planted a story of Russians breaching voting data. That claim was and is still denied by some of the states alleged to be victims. Like almost every other charge lodged against Russia there is no corroboration from a disinterested source. It is true that the state of Georgia mysteriously deleted voter data from servers.That happened because the scope of vote theft carried out with a paperless and easily hackable voting machine was about to be revealed in a lawsuit.

But all talk of stolen elections is forbidden in this country, even though it happens on a regular basis. While Republicans are the vote thieves the Democrats say little or nothing about the resulting defeats and the loss of their most loyal constituents’ citizenship rights. That is just one of the reasons they need to flog the Russiagate horse incessantly. They have nothing else to offer and are no more eager than Republicans to be associated with black people. They want our votes, but if we aren’t allowed to vote at all they pretend not to know.

“More than 75,000 votes cast in majority black cities Flint and Detroit went uncounted because of “malfunctioning” voting machines.”

Rootcolumnist Michael Harriott writes eloquently about the Republican vote theft schemes that guarantee victory for them. He rightly points out that purges of black voters  are accelerating with millions of people at risk of losing their rights. But he lost objectivity when he claimed that Russian hackers breached voting systems and actually changed votes. Even Robert Mueller says that did not happen. But the trauma of the Trump presidency and the irresponsible behavior of those explaining away their role in the debacle creates bad journalism. In the retracted piece Harriott actually uses the obsolete word Soviet not once but four times. Apparently the correct word Russian isn’t scary enough.

The 2016 election is a story of miscalculation by many people. Trump didn’t think he would win, the media who gave him free air time did so because they didn’t think he would win, and Hillary Clinton was so certain of victory that she didn’t campaign in the states that flipped and gave him an electoral college win. A sustained get out the vote effort and protection of the franchise by the Democrats might have countered the electoral larceny that made Trump the 45th president.

Who are the real villains in the story of the 2016 presidential election? Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, the greedy “consultants” who made off with $1 billion in campaign funds and still didn’t get their person into office, and Republicans who have perfected vote thievery. They will strike again and they will do so without any help from Vladimir Putin.
