The basis of #Lockdown logic rests on the following core motives, beliefs:

1. Society must remain locked-down/socially distanced until 'cure' (vaccine) is ready.

2. Now we must rearrange society, culture, life so as to mitigate future risk of 'the disease'....

#endthelockdown
3. In order to 'save lives' we must all accept orders/regulations of UN/WHO & Central Govts. Everyone must 'be on board' w/new rule set, or we're all at risk of more pandemics.

4. To 'save lives', ALL citizens must give up freedoms, liberties for good of the global collective.
5. 'All life is precious'. You cannot put a price (in economic terms) on human life.

So regardless of your ideological interpretation of 1-5, all of this would've been patently rejected 6 months ago & should also be today. Because 1-5 do not apply NonLockdown countries/state.

It's very noticeable now how some 'influencers' who self-identify as 'Communists' & 'Marxists' (of the Middle Class variety, mainly academics + Media personalities) on 'The Left' are actively promoting draconian #Lockdown in West & see it as a political opportunity... (con't)
2) amid panic & insecurity, and seem to believe that all this economic/public suffering is 'necessary' as it will somehow hasten an 'end to Capitalism' bringing forth a new utopia where THEIR 'ideas' will be at the center of politics, these 'ideas' they hope to implement...
3) In my conversations w/some of these persons, they're not at all ashamed to openly eschew civil liberties in favor of some 'greater good' and want to see UBI + other 'socialist programs' like healthcare (which Europe already has anyway), 'climate change reforms' and so on...

It's right to question the current over-the-top freak-out over the #Coronavirus avidly pushed by politicians, selected corps & their MSM media adjuncts - all demanding that *we the people* give Gov carte blanche powers to shut down sections of economy, devalue the currency etc...
2) ... based on what threat exactly? They have NO IDEA what the real Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is. So there's no way to accurately compare just how 'deadly' it is in relation to other emergencies. Hence, how can Gov justify such extreme lockdown measures? Answer: they cannot...
3) It's important to note the initial hype used to push this idea of a "global pandemic" was essentially fake news about the CFR of the Spanish Flu of 1918. Our MSM ran with junk science to over-exaggerate, project a false picture of #COVID19 fatality: wired.com/story/covid-19…

ASSANGE HEARING UPDATE:

#JulianAssange #WikiLeaks
2) While James Lewis QC and his US prosecution team appeared to have the upper hand at end of play on Wed, today Ed Fitzgerald QC led #JulianAssange's defense argument that extradition exceptions for political offenses enshrined in Int'l Law/Treaties are in fact applicable...
3) ... previously Lewis invoked British Constitution & sovereignty of Parliament which can neither 'confer, nor deny any rights' not explicitly mentioned in 2003 Extradition Act, effectively rendering any defense argument e.g. Int'l Law, Treaties or Human Rights null & void...

ASSANGE HEARING UPDATE: #JulianAssange defense lawyer Mark Summers just debunked and dismantled two of prosecution's chief allegations re US extradition request... (con't)
2) #JulianAssange defense reminded prosecution that #WikiLeaks did not release unredacted cable first, and flagged up role of disgraced @guardian writer #LukeHarding as actual culprit publishing password to raw cables which then spread online. WL published doc after all that..
3) Prosecution's allegation that #Assange & #ChelseaManning had cracked hash pw to obtain classified documents is provably false. As was allegation that #Julian 'solicited the theft of classified docs' by creating "Most Wanted List...

(8:30am) Supporters of #JulianAssange gathering outside of Westminster Magistrates Court for case schedule hearing, starting soon. #FreeAssangeNOW #WikiLeaks
(10:45am) 1) Both #Assange defense team and prosecution (representing US) seem to agree on a bifurcated hearing in Feb, and May, as both seem to require more time to prepare. However, Judge Baraitser is pushing back, wanting to fast-track proceedings....
2) Defense lawyer Mr Fitzgerald describes daunting prospect of preparing expert witnesses in what's clearly an incredibly complex case, involving digital analysis, forensics, international treaty and extradition law, all of which makes this a 21st century bell weather case...

One of key reasons why #Labour & #Corbyn got hammered is because many voters swallowed the propaganda campaign of Corbyn being an 'antisemite' & 'IRA sympthiser' w/much of lies coming from benches of Labour itself. Jeremy then topped himself by pivoting on #Brexit because...
2) ... he was weak and beaten into a corner and at the mercy of the traitors & establishment operatives embedded in his own party. By dithering on #Brexit he was a goner, and his adversaries knew that full well. Blairites handed Tories a mandate in order to slay #JeremyCorbyn...
3).... it's a simple as that. It was a NeoLiberal coup for sure, but to be honest if half the #Labour voters were not smart enough to see what was happening in front of them, then they deserve to lose big - many were too easily led by deceivers at The Guardian etc, still aloof...

I was in Court Room No.3 for #JulianAssange US extradition hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court in London. The following are some of my observations from today's proceedings...
#WiliLeaks #AssangeHearing
1) The court room was very small, only space for a handful of friends, family and maybe 10 members of the press I could see. #JulianAssange appeared via video link from Belmarsh Prison and his physical appearance looked...
2) ... markedly better in terms of his weight, I am merely going by the video shot from torso up, but face seemed to be slightly fuller than the extremely thin face in leaked video (allegedly shot in April or May). He had full beard, hair slightly longer, combed back, wearing...

I feel sorry for #CNN's #WolfBlitzer because he's probably clueless. A truly disgusting display of ignorance & abuse - using the name of Ellie Wiesel to launder the sordid reputation of a terrorist-affiliated phony NGO the #WhiteHelmets - to sell an illegal war on #Syria...
Firstly, they are not the "Syrian Civil Defense" - the #WhiteHelmets stole the name from the REAL Syria Civil Defence who are member of the ICDO since 1953, real volunteers rescuers, not video propaganda production operatives. Wake up Wolf: 21stcenturywire.com/2016/09/23/exc…
Wolf, If you value your integrity, then spend 15 minutes watch this video exposing the #WhiteHelmets. All of the evidence is documented. These are terrorists, criminals, thieves, killers hated by normal #Syrians, used by our gov's to create a narrative:

1) With all due respect @ggreenwald, your colleague @jeremyscahill penned a truly rotten piece for @theintercept "Moscow Mueller: What the Indictments and Plea Agreements Mean for Donald Trump" (Nov 2017) which pushed a number of conspiracy theories & slandered @GeorgePapa19...
2) This screed was full of Empty Wheel style speculative #Russiagate musings & #Resistance projections, a la "Just because there's no collusion indictments, doesn't mean he's not guilty" etc.
