A dispatch from caucus99percent
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Skripal case was totally bogus and made up by British intelligence and wonders of wonders the Integrity Initiative. It was just one more false flag event to get various results. More money for the U.K.'s defense budget. More sanctions on Russia. And getting lots of Russian Federation personnel kicked out of numerous countries.
Other disturbing allegations have also surfaced recently around the Skripal incident in relation to the British government-funded Integrity Initiative, including evidence that suggests advanced planning of a ‘catastrophe’ which could be used to then expel Russian diplomats from the UK and US, as a re-run of Cold War play executed by UK intelligence in 1971 under the heading of Operation Foot.
Watch this video and see how far back the incident was cooked up and the reasons why it was.
In another somewhat bizarre news release this week, British authorities are claiming that the roof of the home of former UK-Russian double agent Sergei Skripal is to be dismantled by “military teams,” who will then replace the wooden roof as a “precautionary measure” to guard against “residue contamination” according to a report filed by the BBC. However, UK officials still insists that the Skripals first came into contact with the alleged deadly Russian-made chemical weapon nerve agent when it was sprayed on the front door handle, so it’s difficult to see why the British military are going to rebuild the roof of of Skripal’s modest semi-detached home in Salisbury.
Remember how many stories we were told about this? Novichok was put in the car's air system. No it was on the car door handle. No it was put in the food. Finally we were told that it was on the outside door handle at his house. But then how did Yulia get exposed? Did both of them close the door?
Remember that this incident with the Skripals happened just before Russia was going to be hosting the Soccer World Cup. And that it occurred after the Winter Olympics where a Russian contestant was accused of drugging and kicked out. Funny how the media didn't spend as much energy on reporting that he didn't actually do that. (or was it during the summer ones?) oh well it did happen. False allegations were made just to get at Russia. F'ck the Olympics if this is allowed to happen.
This article is very detailed and has lots of information that excerpting it can't do it justice so read for yourselves about this.
One file apparently dating to "early 2015" — "Russian Federation Sanctions" — written by the Institute's Victor Madeira outlines "potential levers" to achieve Russian "behaviour change", "peace with Ukraine", "return [of] Crimea", "regime change" or "other?". The suggested "levers" span almost every conceivable area, including "civil society", "sports", "finance" and "technology".
In the section marked "intelligence", Madeira suggests simultaneously expelling "every RF [Russian Federation] intelligence officer and air/defense/naval attache from as many countries as possible". In parentheses, it references 'Operation Foot', the expulsion of over 1000 Soviet officials from the UK in September 1971, the largest expulsion of intelligence officials by any government in history.
The section on sports also suggests "advocating the view [Russia] is unworthy of hosting [sporting] events" — and the section marked "information" recommends the sanctioning of 'Russian' media "in West for not complying with regulators' standards".
Operation IRIS Begins
On 4 March 2018, former Russian military officer and double agent for MI6 Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Salisbury, England.
Within days, the Institute had submitted a proposal to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, "to study social media activity in respect of the events that took place, how news spread and evaluate how the incident is being perceived" in a number of countries.
The bid was accepted, and the Initiative's 'Operation Iris' was launched. Under its auspices, the Institute employed 'global investigative solutions' firm Harod Associates to analyze social media activity related to Skripal the world over.
It also conducted media monitoring of its own, with Institute 'research fellow' Simon Bracey-Lane producing regular 'roundups' of media coverage overseas, based on insights submitted by individuals connected to the Initiative living in several countries. One submission, from an unnamed source in Moldova, says they "cannot firmly say" whether the country's media had its "own point of view" on the issue, or whether news organizations had taken "an obvious pro-Russian or pro-Western position", strongly suggesting these were key questions for the Initiative.
How long has Integrity Initiative been active and how many articles, events, etc has been shaped by them? What year did Obama make it legal for our government to spread propaganda without consequences if they were caught? It's not like we weren't being bombarded with it before that happened, but it sure seems that it's gotten much worse since Trump became president doesn't it?
So not only has Orwell's NewSpeak become reality where history is going to be rewritten, but we're going to see that alternative websites being more difficult to find if not removed from the web altogether. NewsGuard is going to be the gatekeepers for this. This is another reason why net neutrality was nullified and restoring it wasn't a priority for congress. The deadline to vote on it passed last December and now it's going to be up to Nancy to bring it up again.
Buckle up kids we're in for a bumpy ride.
