News Burst 19 June 2022 – Featured News
- British Home Secretary Priti Patel has authorized the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States to be tried under the Espionage Act in a case which seeks to set a legal precedent for the prosecution of any publisher or journalist, anywhere in the world, who reports inconvenient truths about the US empire. Assange’s legal team will appeal the decision, reportedly with arguments that will include the fact that the CIA spied on him and plotted his assassination. “It will likely be a few days before the (14-day appeal) deadline and the appeal will include new information that we weren’t able to bring before the courts previously. Information on how Julian lawyers were spied on, and how there were plots to kidnap and kill Julian from within the CIA,” Assange’s brother Gabriel Shipton told Reuters on Friday.
- While in opposition, Australia’s newly elected Prime Minister Anthony Albanese had been critical of Assange’s imprisonment in the UK. “I don’t have sympathy for many of [Assange’s] actions but essentially I can’t see what is served by keeping him incarcerated,” Albanese said last February. Australian parliamentarians and advocacy groups have slammed Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s government for not “speaking up” for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a day after the United Kingdom Home Secretary Priti Patel approved his extradition to the US.
- “The decision issued by the UK Home Office approving the extradition of journalist Julian Assange is deeply devastating,” laments Taylor Hudak, journalist and editor at AcTVism Munich. “The western world is sending a message to all journalists and publishers that if you publish information in the public interest that embarrasses the US Empire and exposes its crimes you may face incarceration in a maximum security prison.” One of the great unanswered questions about Assange’s prosecution and planned deportation is what gave the US the right to even prosecute the Australian citizen, according to James O’Neill, Australia-based barrister. However, “it is not a question that has troubled the British… [who] are no more than lapdogs to the Americans,” the barrister remarks.
- The president of France, Emmanuel Macron, has said he would not rule out traveling to Russia and meeting with President Vladimir Putin, but only if certain preconditions are met. Paris supports Ukraine but will take measures to avoid any escalation of the conflict, the French leader told TF1 TV on Friday while visiting Kiev. The French leader said some people do not understand his policy of maintaining contact with Russia, but he “thinks it is France’s role” to continue to do so. Asked whether he would visit Russia, Macron said it would require certain preconditions and “gestures” on the part of the Russian president.
- Police officers and deputies in Polk County in the state of Florida have arrested a Disney World bus driver for attempting to solicit a 15-year-old girl for sex. Eleven other suspected child predators were also apprehended in the operation. Several months earlier, four Disney workers were picked up by officers in a similar sting. Zachary Hudson, a 30-year-old bus driver at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, talked online with an undercover detective posing as a 15-year-old girl, whom he told “age is just a number” and “described the things he wanted to do to her sexually.”
- Nearly two out of five people polled in an annual Reuters study reported sometimes or often avoiding consuming news, according to the survey, which was conducted by the media behemoth across 46 countries earlier this year and published on Tuesday. Fully 38% of respondents said they were avoiding news coverage of certain topics, such as in this case the Covid-19 pandemic, because coverage had become “repetitive” and “depressing,” a surge of 10 percentage points from the figures reported in 2017. Of those who confessed to avoiding the news, 43% complained there was too much coverage of politics and the pandemic, while 36% blamed the news for their poor mood and 29% lamented there was simply too much news to process.
- Chinese and Emirati companies, along with a network of Iranian petrochemical producers, have been hit by secondary US penalties for helping Tehran to “evade sanctions” by supporting the sale of its petrochemical products in international markets. The sanctions were introduced against two companies based in Hong Kong, three in Iran, and four in the United Arab Emirates, according to a statement released by the US Department of the Treasury on Thursday. All interests in property of the firms falling under US jurisdiction have been blocked and those who deal with them may also be sanctioned or penalized under some circumstances. The penalties were also imposed on Chinese citizen Jinfeng Gao and Indian national Mohammed Shaheed Ruknooddin Bhore.
- America’s 42nd president, William Jefferson Clinton, has recently revealed that he made efforts to delve into the nature of a certain conspiracy theory about aliens being kept at a US military base. During his appearance on the CBS’ “Late Late Night Show with James Corden”, Clinton mentioned that during his presidency, he and his Chief of Staff John Podesta “made every attempt to find out everything about Roswell [the town in New Mexico where UFOs were said to have been seen in 1947]”, and that they “sent people to Area 51 to make sure there were no aliens” there. “I said ‘We’ve got to find out how we’re going to deal with this because that’s where we do a lot of our invisibility research in terms of technology, like how we fly airplanes that aren’t picked up by radar and all that.’ So that’s why they’re so secretive,” he said. “But there are no aliens that I know.”
- Last year, the Pentagon confirmed the authenticity of a clip showing a mystery triangle-shaped craft flying near US ships during maneuvers off California in 2019. The video further heightened public interest in unidentified flying objects (UFOs), which had already been piqued by 2020 clips of UFOs flying in ways not thought physically possible. A Freedom of Information Act request has yielded The Drive five new videos from the July 2019 encounters between US Navy warships and mysterious UFOs operating overhead. The footage includes a pair of clips shot from aboard the USS Russell, the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer whose encounter with what appeared to be a triangle-shaped object sparked a public furor in April 2021 when video of the incident was first leaked to the press.
- Those wishing to have their bodies frozen in hopes of being restored to life sometime in the future would reportedly have to pay about $150,000. An Australian company offers those who can afford it an opportunity to have their dead bodies preserved and then revived in the future – provided, of course, that the technology involved works as intended. According to Daily Mail Australia, the bodies of the participants of this venture would be encased in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of about minus 196 degrees Celsius, to be preserved until medical technology becomes advanced enough to revive them. The not-for-profit organization behind this scheme is called Southern Cryonics and its HQ is located in Sydney, while the cryogenic facility itself is set up in Holbrook, New South Wales. Southern Cryonics already has 40 spaces to be filled at the first stage of the project, the media outlet notes, adding that the company plans to build 600 more spaces upon the construction of the additional storage facility.
- Earlier, Prince Andrew was banned from the annual Order of the Garter ceremony after Prince Charles and Prince William lobbied the Queen, sources cited by The Sun said. The ostracised Duke of York had purportedly hoped to use his appearance with the Royal Family as a “plot” to propel himself back to public life. Prince Andrew’s decision to skip Royal Ascot, the most glittering festival in the flat-racing calendar, held over five days in Berkshire each year in June, has given the Royal Family hope that the embattled Duke may be resigned to his fate, reported The Times. Although the Duke of York, 62, had originally been due to attend the race meeting, which would have involved taking part in the carriage procession with other senior members of the royal family, he opted out “without fuss”, a source was cited as saying.
- Namibia – A Windhoek jeweller is selling a fashion ring with the swastika symbol engraved on it for N$1500. The swastika is an ancient religious symbol which was appropriated by the Nazi party in the 1930s. Windhoek City Jewellers manager Moara Sohus says they keep the ring for business purposes only. “It’s just there for whoever is interested. If a customer comes into the shop and says they want a certain design, we cannot question them, since we have to make money,” Sohus says.
