durham & barr’s investigation of the Spooky origins of russia-gate expands


‘Barr & Durham travel to Rome, as walls close in on [Russia-gate’s] mysterious Professor Mifsud (Video)’,
October 10, 2019, raymcgovern.com

Ray links to the Oct. 8, 2019 duran.com video (25 minutes; but worth it), he explains:

“The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the highly unusual trip to Rome, Italy, taken by U.S. Attorney General William Barr and Russiagate-origin-Investigator, John Durham.  Their ostensible purpose was to listen to a secret tape of Maltese Professor Joseph Mifsud, the man many believe is the contracted spy who kicked off the Mueller investigation.  They did more, of course, than simply listen to a tape.

The origins of Russiagate are about to unravel. The trip to Rome, plus the expected results of the investigation of those who approved the FISA warrants for surveillance of Carter Page, which is led by Justice Department IG Michael Horowitz, have seriously rattled the Democrats, corporate media, and other aficionados of the Russia-gate caper.  The best defense being an aggressive offense, they came up not only with “Ukraine-gate,” but also with an “impeachment inquiry!” The “inquiry” appears to be on shaky legal/constitutional grounds and Trump’s lawyers today explained why he refuses to cooperate.  Hold onto your hats.”

fascist Modi twists the screws even more tightly on Kashmiris

This is some of the backstory; I’d high-jacked one of my own recent threads when I’d seen this evil news on Twitter by Sameera Khan, as I must have written a dozen diaries on Kashhmir and the genocidaire Modi’s failure to hold a self-determination plebiscite over the past several years, among his many other dark deeds perpetrated on his own citizens.

‘India to build Israeli style “settlements” in Kashmir’, Ayesha Alam, crescent international  (a few bits):

The people of Kashmir have suffered decades of Indian military occupation and aggression including rape, torture and mass killings. Now the Hindu fascist Bharatiya Janata Party plans to build Israeli-style settlements for Hindus in Kashmir.

the UK, Sweden, and US respond to Nils Melzer’s accusations of torture


(published under a different title by Oscar Grenfell at wsws.org, July 29, 2019.  I’ve received  gracious permission from the site’s editor to use any and all of the site’s content w/ attribution; this is the simplest way to bring the news, although Wikileaks on Twitter has a lot of it piecemeal.)

“UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer last weekend publicly released detailed letters he sent to the governments of the United States, Britain, Sweden and Ecuador in May, documenting their responsibility for the “psychological torture” inflicted upon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as a result of a decade-long political persecution.
