The Geneva city parliament has adopted a motion demanding that the Swiss government offer asylum to controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

The somewhat surprising resolution was the result of an hour-long debate on Wednesday evening, framed in the context of providing better protection for whistleblowers.

The text was proposed by Eric Bertinat of the conservative right People’s Party – a party not usually known for backing acts of “civil disobedience”, in the words of Social Democratic politician Albane Schlechten.

Nevertheless, the proposition picked up enough support from left-wing politicians to withstand opposition from the centre-right Radical Liberals.

The People’s Party have also tried to push through legislation on the Geneva cantonal level to better protect whistleblowers, while at the federal level in Bern, one of its parliamentarians has raised Assange’s case before the Federal Council (government).

At the time, the response of the government about offering asylum to the 47-year-old WikiLieaks founder was negative: he is not a defender of human rights, it said.

Assange initially sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012 to avoid being extradited to Sweden, where authorities wanted to question him as part of a sexual assault investigation. That investigation was dropped.

Assange, whose website published thousands of classified US government documents, denied the Sweden allegations, saying the charge was a ploy that would eventually take him to the United States where prosecutors are preparing to pursue a criminal case against him.

Politicians Now Threatening And Encouraging Violence In The Land Of The Free

politicians-now-threatening-and-encouraging-violence-in-the-land-of-the-free

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

“Between now and November 6, you better put a catcher’s mask on your face because I’m going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes.”

Unfortunately this isn’t trash talk from some middle school bully… it’s a public threat made by a Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate to his incumbent opponent.

With the midterm elections tomorrow, I wanted to take some time today to remind you who your vote actually supports.

Politics has likely never been more divisive in the US… and the politicians continually stoke this flame, often times, like with the quote above, inciting their constituents to carry out violent acts against the opposing party.

It’s completely despicable that this has become the state of government in the land of the free… instead of focusing the public’s attention on solving the big problems the US faces (like debt), politicians stoke partisan flames to advance their own self interests.

And they encourage outright violence. One congresswoman encouraged supporters to attack members of the Cabinet if they saw them in public…

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Calling for violence because you don’t agree with the opposing party is totally pathetic. It’s something I’d expect to see in a third-world country, not the world’s leading economic power.

And it’s one of the many, many reasons I don’t vote.

At the end of the day, you’re forced to choose between two, self-serving candidates who will say whatever BS they have to gain/retain power.

People think they can use their vote to get “the right guy in power.” But the truth is, the new guy just turns into the last guy… because the whole system is broken.

The government spends almost every tax dollar it takes in to pay interest on its debt and on entitlements like social security and Medicare.

And the government’s own projections show the country going only deeper and deeper into debt.

How Politicians Are Creating the Worst Economic Crash in History | Armstrong Economics

how-politicians-are-creating-the-worst-economic-crash-in-history-armstrong-economics

01-11-18 07:26:00,

Politicians have totally and completely misunderstood the trends within the global economy and as a result, they are actually creating one of the worst economic debacles in history. I have explained several times that the bulk of investment capital is tied up in two primary sectors – (1) government bonds and (2) real estate. Because of income taxes, real estate has offered a way to make money in capital gains without having to pay income taxes. Money has looked to park in real estate around the world for many various different reasons as in Italy was the escape from inheritance taxes as well as banks or in Vancouver to gain a foothold for residency fleeing Hong Kong. In Australia, there was the Super Annuation Fund which allowed people to use retirement funds for real estate. In New Zealand, the new government wanted to declare foreign investment just illegal and in Australia, they made it a criminal act for a foreigner to own property and not inform the government they were foreigners. Over in London, they imposed taxes on property which created a crash.

People spend more when they believe that they have big profits in their home. The recession of 2007-2010 was so bad recording the worst of all declines since the Great Depression all BECAUSE it undermined the real estate values. People then spent less because they viewed their home declined in value. As taxes have been rising and the average home value collapsed, the velocity of money kept declining. Especially as real estate values declined and interest on savings accounts vanished hurting the elderly who saved money for retirement and discovered their savings were producing less income, the velocity of money just plummeted. The velocity of money began to turn up finally in the USA ONLY when interest rates began to rise. The retired could suddenly begin to make something on the savings for one in a very long time. This is something the ECB still has not figured out in Europe as it has wiped out both the elderly savings along with pension funds.

The USA targeted only New York and Miami requiring that title companies pierce corporate veils to discover who was really behind what. They did not impose taxes only on foreigners nor did they outlaw foreign ownership of property.

The Best Way To Educate Politicians And Government Agencies About Wi-Fi… | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

The Best Way To Educate Politicians And Government Agencies About Wi-Fi… | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

19-07-18 06:19:00,

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Slowly, but surely, many high tech consumers are coming to the rough realization that the very devices they have fallen in love with and depend upon, i.e., iPhones, smart phones, and other products that use microwaves to send and receive voice, data, photos, games, etc. are emitting frequencies which are affecting their wellbeing, giving them “brain fog” and exposing them to Electrosmog [1], a form of electronic pollution.

Furthermore, many folks have come to the extremely sad realization they now are electromagnetically hypersensitive (EHS), but don’t know what to do about it or how to deal with it.  That unfortunate health problem results from constant exposures 24/7/365 to EMFs and RFs emitted by utilities (electric, natural gas and water) AMI Smart Meters; cell phone and towers; HAN and LAN networks at work and at home; ubiquitous Wi-Fi, especially in schools, workplaces and public cafés; 4G and the super-fast 5G, which will have more serious health consequences [2-3] than is being acknowledged by the U.S. FCC, ICNIRP and the World Health Organization.

However, one extremely savvy consumer –activist, Cece Doucette of Ashland, Massachusetts, made a presentation before her local Board of Health which everyone ought to know about, study and emulate to educate others, and also to become an activist to protect yourself the best you can.

Here is Cece’s excellent presentation.
