About the kid [Seth], I’ll tell you what I know. What I know comes off an FBI report. Don’t ask me how. You can figure it out, I’ve been around a long time. The kid, just, I don’t think he was murdered, I, I don’t think he was murdered because of what he knew. The kids a nice boy, 27, he was not IT expert, but he learned stuff. He was a data programmer, but he learned stuff. And so he’s living on one street, someone, in my eyes,- he’s living in a rough neighborhood and in the exact where he’d been living, as I’m sure you know, there have been about 8 or 9 or 10 violent, uh not robberies, most of them with somebody brandishing a gun and it’s the kids hands, I’m telling you look, I’m sure you know what, his hands are marked up, the cops concluded he fought off the people, tried to run they shot him twice in the back with a 22 small caliper. And then, they, the kids that did it ran, they got scared, they didn’t take his wallet.
Ok. So what the cops do is this: And this is where nobody knows, what I’m telling you, and maybe you know something about it. When you have a death like that DC cops, if you’re dead, you don’t just generally go yep I know (unintelligible) you have to get into the kid's apartment and see what you can find. If he’s dead you don’t need a warrant but most cops get a warrant because they don’t know if they’ve guys has, has a, a roommate. You need a warrant. So they get a warrant. I’m just telling you, there is such a thing. They go in the house and they can’t do much with this computer. It’s (unintelligible) the cops don’t know much about it. So the DC cops they have a cyber unit in DC and they’re more sophisticated. They come and look at it. The idea is maybe he’s a series of exchanges with somebody who says I’m going to kill you motherfucker over a girl or… and they can’t get in. The cyber guys do a little better but they can’t make sense of it so they call the, they call the FBI cyber unit, the DC unit.
The Washington field office is a hot shit unit. The guy running the Washington field office he’s like, he’s like, you know, he’s like a three star at an army base he’s already looking for four, you know what I mean? He’s gonna go in a top job. There’s a cyber unit there that’s excellent, given. What you get in a warrant is, the public information you get in a warrant doesn’t include, uh, it does not include the affidavit underlying what, why you are you going in, what the reasons are that... That’s almost never available, um, I, I can tell you that the existence of a warrant is a public document 99% of the time. So, um, on the same warrant, they call in the feds. The feds get through, and this is what they find. This is according to the FBI report. What they find is he makes cont- first of all this is what you have to know, you have to know some basic facts, one of the basic factors, in that there’s no DNC or Podesta emails that exist beyond May 22nd. May 21st, May 22nd is the last email from either one of those groups. And so what the reports says is that sometime in late spring, we’re talking June you know summers in June 21st, late spring would be after, I presume, I don’t know, I’d just say late spring, early summer and he makes contact with Wikileaks. That’s in his computer and he makes contact.
Now, I have to be careful because I, I’ve know, I, met Julian 10 or 12 years (ago?) I stay the fuck away from people like that, you know. He’s invited me, and when I’m in London I always get a message “Come see me at the Ecuadorian” but I say fuck no I’m not going there I’ve got enough trouble without getting photographed. And he’s under total surveillance by everybody but anyways. So, they found what he’d done. He had submitted a series of documents, of emails. Some juicy emails from the DNC, and you know, by the way, all this shit about the DNC, um, you know, whether it was hacked or wasn’t hacked, whatever happened, the Democrats themselves wrote this shit, you know what I mean? All I know is that he (Seth) offered a sample, an extensive sample, you know I’m sure dozens of email and said: “I want money”. Then later Wikileaks did get the password, he had a Dropbox, a protected Dropbox, which isn’t hard to do, I mean you don’t have to be a wizard IT, you know, he was certainly not a dumb kid. They got access to the Dropbox. He also, and this is also in the FBI report, he also let people know, with whom he was dealing, and I don’t know how he dealt, I’ll tell you about Wikileaks in a second. I don’t know how he dealt with the Wikileaks and the mechanism but he also, the word was passed according to the NSA report, “I’ve also shared this box with a couple of friends so if anything happens to me it’s not going to solve your problem”. Ok. I don’t know what that means.
I don’t know whether you- Anyways, Wikileaks got access, and before he was killed- I can tell you right now Brennan is an asshole. Uh, I’ve known all these people for years. Clapper is sort of a better guy but not rocket scientist, the NSA guy’s a fucking moron, and they don’t- you know the trouble with all of those guys is that the only way they’re going to make it to a board or two and get hired by (?) and get some fat cat contracts is if Hillary stayed in. With Trump they’re gone, they’re done, they’re going to live on their pension, they’re not going to make it. And I gotta tell you guys, they don’t want to live on their pension, they want to be on boards (?).
I have somebody on the inside, you know I’ve been around a long time, and I write a lot of stuff. I have somebody on the inside who will go and read a file for me. This person is unbelievably accurate and careful, he’s a very high-level guy and he’ll do a favor. You’re just going to have to trust me. I have what they call in my business a long-form journalism, I have a narrative of how that whole fucking thing began, it’s a Brennan operation, it was an American disinformation and fucking the fucking President, at one point when they, they even started telling the press, they were back briefing the press, the head of the NSA was going and telling the press, fucking cock-sucker Rogers, was telling the press that we even know who in the GRU, the Russian Military Intelligence Service, who leaked it. I mean all bullshit. They were telling the stupid . . . I worked at the New York Times for fucking years, and the trouble with the fucking New York Times is they have smart guys, but they’re totally beholden on sources. If the president or the head of the (???) to actually believe it. I was actually hired at the time to write, to go after the war in Vietnam War in 72 because they were just locked in. So that’s what the Times did. These guys run the fucking Times, and Trump’s not wrong. But I mean I wish he would calm down and had a better a better press secretary, I mean you don’t have to be so. Trump’s not wrong to think they all fucking lie about him. I can tell you right n… [end of tape]

This will be ignored by the media.
It is telling also that the Imran Awan story is being blanket ignored by the corporate media.

This is great stuff.  I think most people know that the press is lying to us.  People aren't watching TV news anymore.  There rating has collapsed, except for maybe Fox News, but even they're not real popular.  But what gets me, if you watch the news, they act like they're still in the game, like people are watching them or something. And they keep on with their bullshit even though its killing them.  
 
Its like America is wearing a mask, its all fake, its all make believe. 
 
I don't know, I don't think there's enough protest, calling them out, showing them up.  We're just letting it go, so what ever happens, no one to blame, but our self. Something will happen, sooner or later, this charade can't go on.  If we went to war with Russia.  We would loose.

The state crushed Occupy Wall St, largely cheered on by the sort of right wing cretins that populate WB.

I suspect this will go the way of the Benghazi scandal. The wingnuts will make a fuss about everything but the substantive criminal actions that could result in real action.
The squealing on the right will be about disguising the criminal actions of operatives of both factions of the war party.
They were never ever going to go after the real story of Benghazi because their own were heavily involved in the scheme of transporting weapons to McCain's militias in Syria.

Everyone would lose.
You Americans need to rein your elite in before they destroy the world. Nobody wants their shit.
America (whatever that is) has no right to rule the planet whatsoever.

Here's an interesting article from the news journal Commentary about how often Hersh has been wrong or deceitful.
 
https://www.commentarymagazine.com/articles/the-deceits-of-seymour-hersh/

Here's a piece of that article.
 
For his reporting on My Lai, Hersh won the Pulitzer Prize, and the story made him, in the words of then-New York Times managing editor A.M. Rosenthal, “the hottest piece of journalistic property in the United States.” The Times promptly hired Hersh to work in its Washington bureau, where the sloppiness that would come to define his journalism career soon became evident. In 1974, he claimed that the former U.S. Ambassador to Chile, Edward Korry, was involved in a coup d’état the previous year. It wasn’t until 1981 that Hersh would write a 3,000-word, front-page retraction exonerating Korry that Time referred to as “the longest correction ever published.”
This experience did nothing to dissuade Hersh from making grave and poorly substantiated charges, almost always based upon the assertions of what would soon become the defining feature of the Hersh oeuvre: anonymous sources. In a 1983 book on former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Hersh alleged that former Prime Minister Morarji Desai of India was a paid agent of the Central Intelligence Agency, receiving $20,000 annually. Hersh based the accusation on what he claimed were interviews with six confidential sources. Desai sued Hersh for libel, but due to his advanced age was unable to travel to the United States for the trial. Given the nature of American libel laws, which heavily favor defendants (particularly journalists using anonymous sources), Hersh won, claiming a great victory for the First Amendment in the process. Desai’s lawyer said, “We just had to take Mr. Hersh’s words for it that he talked to someone”—words that must apply to anyone who reads Hersh’s journalism.
In 1991, Hersh published The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy, which featured a variety of stupendous (and occasionally, contradictory) allegations. To take but a handful: Hersh alleged that, during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israel blackmailed the United States into launching a weapons airlift by threatening to deploy its nuclear arsenal against Arab adversaries—a claim that Richard Nixon later said had “no foundation whatsoever.” Hersh also wrote that Israel had targeted cities in the Soviet Union with its nuclear arsenal while simultaneously passing along American nuclear secrets to Moscow.

John - nobody is perfect in this world and you can make up anything on anybody, just twist this and that, add a little here and take a little from there, just pick someone and go for it.  I'm not falling for it. To bad you are one of many who are apart of the problem and not the solution.  You got a story there from Hersh - prove it wrong, disagree, but you don't win a thing discrediting another person.  Doesn't make you any better or any smarter.

So true.  He may become the next victim of the Clinton machine.  What's the count today?  I lost track.

The good thing is the information is out there and people are tuning in, at least the ones that can't be led like slaughtered sheep.  As I understand the elite are running a massive pedophile ring and that also comes from credible sources.  We are finding out just how utterly disgusting these people are.

JG Baseless smear job so typical of Forward. Hersch is obviously not sufficiently adoring of the Zionist lobby for their taste.

This was a story in the Enquirer.  I remember disgusing it with a young man who was a Trump supporter who bought in for his friends.
