Newt Gingrich calls murder of Seth Rich an assassination

Assassination (noun): killing or murder for political reasons.

This morning, appearing on Fox & Friends, referring to the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said (0:41 mark):

“We have this very strange story now of this young man who worked for the Democratic National Committee, who apparently was assassinated at four in the morning, having given WikiLeaks something like 23,000, I’m sorry, 53,000 emails and 17,000 attachments. Nobody’s investigating that. And what does that tell you about what was going on, because it turns out it wasn’t the Russians. It was this young guy who I suspect was disgusted by the corruption of the Democratic National Committee. He’s been killed and apparently nothing serious has been done to investigate his murder.”

Meanwhile, Kim Dotcom — a German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur, businessman, musician, and political party founder who resides in Auckland, New Zealand — has come forth claiming that “I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the @Wikileaks source. I was involved.”

Kim Dotcom has been invited by Sean Hannity to appear on the latter’s TV show this coming Tuesday, May 23. Kim Dotcom tweets he will meet his legal team tomorrow (Monday) and issue a statement on Sean Hannity radio and TV on Tuesday.

DC Demonrats reportedly are in a panic.

An anonymous poster on 4chan who says he works in Washington, DC, writes:

Anons, I work in D.C.

I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.

This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and they’re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring down the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.

It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to “make an example of the leaker” is a huge smoking gun.

The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. circles will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.

If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. seen such a panicked reaction from anyone.

I have strong reason to believe that the smoking gun in this case is out of the hands of the conspirators, and will be discovered by anons. I know for certain that Podesta is deeply concerned. He’s been receiving anonymous calls and emails from people saying they know the truth. Same with Hillary.

Lastly, reward posters for information on Seth Rich’s murder are popping up in D.C.

Four days ago, this poster offering a $130,000 reward was spotted at a bus stop on Rhode Island Ave. in the Columbia Heights section of Washington, DC, where Rich was gunned down early Sunday morning, July 10, 2016.  (Source: imgur)

Proof that owner of bar where Seth Rich was last seen alive visited White House 4 days earlier

Yesterday, I published the post “Owner of bar where Seth Rich was last seen alive, may have visited Obama White House 4 days earlier,” in which I showed that White House Logs have a “Joseph P. Capone” visiting the Obama White House on July 6, 2016 — four days before DNC staffer Seth Rich was assassinated in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his apartment in Washington, D.C.

Rich’s behavior that night suggests he had been drugged:

  • According to Daily Mail, “Rich was unusually drunk. The 27-year-old DNC staffer could normally throw back Bell’s beer for hours without a problem, but that night he was uncharacteristically unsteady on his feet as he made his way out the door.”
  • “That was just not Seth. I never saw him drunk or even tipsy.” (Newsweek)

Both WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hacker Guccifer 2.0 had said Rich was the source of thousands of DNC emails that WikiLeaks published, to damaging effect on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

See “Arkancide: Seth Rich was murdered for leaking DNC emails to WikiLeaks

According to White House Logs, on July 6, 2016, a “Joseph P. Capone” visited the White House as part of a group of four, beginning at 12 noon and ending at 11:59 pm. The meeting location was the East Wing of the White House. The appointment (number U38825) had been made a week before on June 29, 2016. The other three people in Capone’s group were Allesandra J. Capone, Michael R. Capone, and Kymberlie N. Jeffery.

In my post yesterday, I asked if Joseph P. Capone is Joe Capone, the general manager of Lou’s City Bar that Rich had patronized before he was shot.

Here’s proof that the “Joseph P. Capone” who visited the White House on July 6, 2016, four days before Seth Rich was murdered, is indeed Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone.

The proof is a pic that Joe Capone tweeted on July 6, 2016, the day of his White House visit. But you won’t find that pic/tweet on Capone’s Twitter account because he appears to have deleted all tweets after May 18, 2016. Fortunately, an enterprising citizen journalist captured a screenshot of the tweet and posted it to 4chan:

As you can see, the pic was taken from INSIDE the White House, looking out onto the South Lawn fountain and, far away, the domed Thomas Jefferson Memorial.

Here’s a screenshot I took from Google Map, showing the White House at the bottom, the fountain, and the Jefferson Memorial at the top:

Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone must be a very special person to get a meeting in the White House’s East Wing, which Wikipedia says “serves as office space for the First Lady and her staff”.

The MSM are strenuously avoiding any mention of Seth Rich, but are using the alleged but groundless Russia-Trump collusion to deflect attention away from Rich’s murder. Please help me publicize about this brave and principled young man via email and social media.

Update (May 20, 2017):

According to George Webb, an Alt. Media reporter, who visited Lou’s City Bar and interviewed Joe Capone (with the latter’s lawyer present), Capone said he wasn’t in the bar the night of July 9, 2016, but was in Ocean City, MD with his family (beg. 2:05 mark), and that “friends” were talking with Seth Rich in the ambulance on the ride to the hospital (2:56 mark)

Bill Hicks Channel Breaks News On Mueller

Wikileaks Reveal Former FBI Director Mueller Gave Russia Uranium In 2009

Patrician looking Robert Mueller may not be the right man for an unbiased investigation.

Wikileaks and the Alex Jones Channel continue to reveal secrets the deep state are trying to shroud. Let us pray this one finds its way onto the FoxNews and other MSM, so it can’t be ignored. Thank you Julian and Alex.

Owner of bar where Seth Rich was last seen alive, may have visited Obama White House 4 days earlier

At a little past 4 AM early Sunday morning on July 10, 2016, 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich was shot about a block from his apartment in a residential neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

More than 10 months after he was shot, Rich’s murder is still unsolved.

Both WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hacker Guccifer 2.0 had said Rich was the source of thousands of DNC emails that WikiLeaks published, to damaging effect on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

See “Arkancide: Seth Rich was murdered for leaking DNC emails to WikiLeaks

According to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s Public Incident report, responding to the sound of gunshots at 2134 Flagler Pl. NW., police officers were on the scene by 4:20 AM and found Rich laying on the ground in the southwest corner of the intersection of W St. and Flagler Pl. NW., having been shot in his back but alive and conscious. He was taken to Washington Hospital Center where, at 5:57 AM or an hour and 37 minutes after police had first found him, was pronounced dead by an attending physician.

See “Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was alive and conscious when found by police

According to an anonymous poster on 4chan who claims to be an ER surgery resident at Washington Hospital Center who had operated on Rich’s “small” non-fatal gun wounds in his liver and bowel, Rich was stable and in recovery after his surgery, only to die under suspicious “fishy” circumstances hours later.

See “ER surgeon at Seth Rich’s hospital says his wounds were not fatal

According to a Daily Mail investigation, before he was shot, Rich was a patron at Lou’s City Bar, a sports pub he frequented five or six nights a week. Daily Mail reporter Alana Goodman writes:

“Rich showed up alone that evening and sat at his usual leather stool in the corner of the bar. He was a regular at the pub, often showing up straight from the office in a shirt and tie and lugging his laptop bag.”

Rich left Lou’s City Bar at 1:45 AM (the bar closes at 2 AM on Saturday nights).  Goodman recounts:

“Clearly inebriated, he was offered a ride home but refused, saying he was heading to Wonderland, another bar about 10 minutes walk away. No one at Wonderland could recall seeing Seth that morning but the bar shut up at 2:30.”

The general manager of Lou’s City Bar is Joe Capone. See his LinkedIn page here, and his Twitter @joecapone0206 here.

Now, citizen journalists on 4chan have uncovered that the general manager of Lou’s City Bar, Joe Capone, may have visited the Obama White House at least three times, the last visit being a mere four days before Seth Rich was murdered:

  1.  White House Logs show that on November 12, 2011, a “Joseph A. Capone” visited the White House as part of a group of 356, beginning 11:30 am and ending at 11:59 pm.
  2. White House Logs show that on Tuesday, October 2, 2012, a “Joe Capone” visited the White House at 1:30 pm, as part of a group of 19 people. The appointment (number U43297) was made by caller Alison Kula at 12:00 pm the day before, on October 1, 2012 . The appointment was scheduled to begin on October 2 at 1:30 pm with Felice Gorordo in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building 430bc. According to , Capone et al.‘s visit ended at 11:59 pm. This was Capone’s first visit since records were released in 2009.
  3. White House Logs show that on July 6, 2016, a “Joseph P. Capone” visited the White House as part of a group of four, beginning at 12 noon and ending at 11:59 pm. The meeting location was the East Wing of the White House. The appointment (number U38825) had been made a week before on June 29, 2016. The other three people in Capone’s group were Allesandra J. Capone, Michael R. Capone, and Kymberlie N. Jeffery. If this Joseph P. Capone is Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone, then he must be a very special person to get a meeting in the White House’s East Wing, which Wikipedia says “serves as office space for the First Lady and her staff”.

Note: The 11:59 pm may be a default ending time.

Are 2011 White House visitor “Joe Capone”, 2012 White House visitor “Joseph A. Capone” and 2016 White House visitor “Joseph P. Capone” the same person?

Spokeo found a Joseph A. Capone, 56, who lives in Vienna, VA, but has a P.O. Box in Washington, DC. Vienna, VA is 17.2 miles by car from Washington, DC.

According to Email Finder, there’s a Joseph P. Capone, who is in his mid-40s and lives in Olney, MD, which is 18 minutes by car from Washington, DC.

Update (May 20, 2017):

There is photographic proof that the “Joseph P. Capone” who visited the White House on July 6, 2016,  four days before Seth Rich was murdered, is indeed Lou’s City Bar general manager Joe Capone.

ER surgeon at Seth Rich’s hospital says his gun wounds were not fatal

Yesterday, on the Internet chat forum 4chan, an individual who goes by the alias of Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) claimed to be a surgery resident at Washington Hospital Center who had attended to Seth Rich — the 27-year-0ld Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer who leaked thousands of damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

Rich was shot in the early morning hours (around 4 a.m.) on Sunday, July 10, in a residential area of Washington, D.C. Although police say Rich was the victim of a “random burglary,” his killer(s) left behind Rich’s wallet, watch and cell phone.

Unless Anonymous comes forth to reveal his/her identity, there is no way for us to know if Anonymous is who he/she claims to be. However, as you will read for yourself, I find Anonymous to be credible because of the display of medical knowledge and use of medical shorthand terminology.

This is what Anonymous said:

  • Seth Rich was shot twice in the back.
  • He sustained a “small injury” to his liver and “several small bowel injuries” — none of which was fatal.
  • He was taken to the operating room, where his injuries were treated.
  • He was then moved to ICU (Intensive Care Unit) where he received blood transfusion. He was stable, his blood pressure normal.
  • 8 hours after Rich arrived at the hospital, the place “swarmed” with law enforcement officers. Everyone, except the attending physician and a few nurses, was kicked out of the ICU. There were no visiting hours, which is abnormal for ICU.
  • That morning, Anonymous and the other doctors were instructed not to make rounds (visits) on “the VIP that came in last night” (Seth Rich).
  • When Rich died, no one other than the attending physician was allowed to see him. There was no code alert or call for a cardiopulmonary resuscitation team. Although Anonymous was with a patient in the next room, he/she was blocked from attending to Rich.
  • At the time, Anonymous couldn’t understand why the patient Rich was treated that way and thought the whole thing to be “fishy”. Later, when he found out that the patient was Seth Rich, Anonymous “was terrified”.

Here’s a screenshot of Anonymous’ post (click to enlarge):

4chan deletes its contents at the end of each day, but the thread on which Anonymous had posted was briefly archived, which enabled me to copy what Anonymous wrote (see below) before the archived thread was removed.

Below are Anonymous’ post and his responses to 4chan readers’ queries:

Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) 05/17/17(Wed)13:12:50 No.125912863:

4th year surgery resident here who rotated at WHC (Washington Hospital Center) last year, it won’t be hard to identify me but I feel that I shouldn’t stay silent.

Seth Rich was shot twice, with 3 total gunshot wounds (entry and exit, and entry). He was taken to the OR emergently [sic] where we performed an exlap and found a small injury to segment 3 of the liver which was packed and several small bowel injuries (pretty common for gunshots to the back exiting the abdomen) which we resected ~12cm of bowel and left him in discontinuity (didn’t hook everything back up) with the intent of performing a washout in the morning. He did not have any major vascular injuries otherwise. I’ve seen dozens of worse cases than this which survived and nothing about his injuries suggested to me that he’d sustained a fatal wound.

Note: “OR” means operating room; “exlap” refers to exploratory laparotomy — is a surgical operation where the abdomen is opened and the abdominal organs examined for injury or disease. It is the standard of care in various blunt and penetrating trauma situations in which there may be multiple life-threatening injuries; “resected” means cut off or remove.

In the meantime he was transferred to the ICU and transfused 2 units of blood when his post-surgery crit came back ~20. He was stable and not on any pressors, and it seemed pretty routine. About 8 hours after he arrived we were swarmed by LEOs and pretty much everyone except the attending and a few nurses was kicked out of the ICU (disallowing visiting hours -normally every odd hour, eg 1am, 3am, etc- is not something we do routinely). It was weird as hell. At turnover that morning we were instructed not to round on the VIP that came in last night (that’s exactly what the attending said, and no one except for me and another resident had any idea who he was talking about).

Note: “post-surgery crit” is post-surgery critical care, referring to the patient’s  hematocrit level, i.e., the percentage of red blood cells circulating in the blood; “pressor” means “tending to increase blood pressure”; “LEOs” is law enforcement officers; “not to round” means not to make bedside visits.

No one here was allowed to see Seth except for my attending when he died. No code was called. I rounded on patients literally next door but was physically blocked from checking in on him. I’ve never seen anything like it before, and while I can’t say 100% that he was allowed to die, I don’t understand why he was treated like that. Take it how you may, /pol/, I’m just one low level doc. Something’s fishy though, that’s for sure.

Note: “No code was called” means no emergency alert was sounded for a cardiopulmonary resuscitation team; “/pol/” refers to “politically incorrect” posts on 4chan.

A commenter challenged Anonymous:

prove you are not a larper.
what are the list of medications you administered throughout the entire process?

Note: “a larper” is someone who engages in larp or live action role playing, i.e., someone online pretending to be someone else.

Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) 05/17/17(Wed)13:26:47 No.125914751:

When he [Seth Rich] arrived to the trauma ward he had LR running, I don’t keep up with how much he got but less than 2 liters before we rolled to the OR.

Note: “LR” is Lactated Ringers (solution), a common fluid replacement for patients who have lost blood or other body fluids; “PRBC” is packed red blood cells; “FFP” is fresh frozen plasma.

No transfusion was done in trauma; the massive transfusion protocol was started because he was hypotensive on arrival but by the time the cooler (4u PRBC, 2u FFP) was ready we were on the way to the OR and honestly I don’t remember if he got any of it beforehand; he responded well to just IVF resuscitation so we went ahead with the surgery any just ended up giving him 2 units afterwards (the crit we got in trauma was returned just after we left and was low, ~24 IIRC but it wasn’t communicated to us… teamwork fail for sure but that can happen when we’re rushing to the OR)

Note: “hypotensive” means abnormally low blood pressure.

As for the rest of the meds? You’d have to ask anesthesia I guess. He didn’t need anything from us in the ICU except a propofol/fentanyl drip to maintain sedation while intubated but that’s pretty par for the course. The important part was that he was hemodynamically stable and not requiring pressors.

Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) 05/17/17(Wed)13:36:13 No.125915975

I haven’t spoken to the attending who was on staff that night but the other resident I was with that night doesn’t remember it in any clarity (he was called to traumas as part of his rotation but that was ancillary to his ICU -different ICU btw- duties). Basically he said, “yeah that was weird, right?” At the time we were way more concerned with the rising class / new interns (July 1st is a terrifying time to be a patient lol) to make much notice… it always stuck in my head as something super bizarre but it was a long time before I even realized it was Seth Rich. When he arrived he was assigned by our system a trauma number, not a name as his patient ID. I only knew him at that time as Tra### (no freaking way that I remember the actual number). When it came to light who he was a while later I was floored. And terrified.

Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) 05/17/17(Wed)13:39:36 No.125916400

Nope, nothing in the head so no freaking way we’d CT before going to the OR with a clear intraabdominal GSW. No need to FAST or anything, just stabilize and go to the OR

Note: “CT” is CAT scan; “GSW” is gunshot wound.

One could always just increase the propofol drip or give him a ton of roc and screw with the vent settings. No idea if that happened but it’d be easy if you have the right meds and access

Anonymous (ID: rhotYJAg) 05/17/17(Wed)13:53:57 No.125918189

He had two holes in his right flank and one in the left upper quadrant. In trauma you always assume by protocol that 3 holes = 3 bullets but it was pretty clear that he was shot twice by the trajectory of the bullet (eg, his liver injury). I’ve also seen enough GSWs to know that the media doesn’t get the number right every time.

Yeah, I’m not going to do that. Way too dangerous.

Alright anons it’s been swell but I’ll be gone for the next few hours for regular residency meeting / journal club BS. Take everything you read especially from the MSM with a grain of salt as usual but don’t stop digging.

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was alive and conscious when found by police

Two days ago, on May 15, 2017, Rod Wheeler, a private investigator affiliated with the family of slain Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich who was murdered last July in Washington, DC, told Fox 5 DC that there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.

According to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and the hacker Guccifer 2.0, Seth Rich had supplied thousands of damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

In an exchange of emails, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign officials John Podesta and Joel Benenson vowed to “make examples of” suspected leakers, for whom there would be “stiff consequences”.

Wheeler, a former D.C. police homicide detective, believes there is a cover-up of Rich’s murder, that the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) has been told to back down from the investigation, and that neither MPD nor the FBI have been forthcoming.

See “Arkancide: Seth Rich was murdered for leaking DNC emails to WikiLeaks

On Tuesday, a day later, Fox 5 DC tweeted that “DC Police say Wheeler’s assertion that detectives instructed to stand down regarding Rich case is false.”

Now, two new developments have come to light in the assassination of Seth Rich.

(1) Seth Rich was still alive when the police found him

According to D.C. Metropolitan Police’s CCN #16113797 Public Incident Report on Seth Rich (source: ScribD):

  • On July 10, 2016, at 4:20 a.m., Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officer Jody O’Leary responded to a gun shooting at a residential neighborhood in D.C. — the southwest corner of 2134 Flagler Place NW, Washington, DC 20001.
  • Officer O’Leary was assisted by MPD officers Robert Wingate Robinson, Derek Tarr, Shea Ellis, Benjamin Velez and Mark Lee (Velez and Lee wore body cameras).
  • The victim was Seth Conrad Rich.
  • Rich was shot in the back, not the head, and was still alive and conscious when police found him.

Note: An anonymous poster on 4chan who claims to be an ER surgeon, said Rich’s gun wounds were not fatal and was doing well after the operation, only to die several hours later under suspicious circumstances. See “ER surgeon at Seth Rich’s hospital says his wounds were not fatal“.

Here’s MPD’s “Public Narrative” on the shooting:

CIC reports the sound of gunshots at 2134 Flagler Pl. NW. Upon arriving to the scene, the decedent was laying in the Southwest corner of the intersection of W St. and Flagler Pl. NW. The decedent was conscious and breathing with apparent gunshot wound(s) to the back. The decedent was transported to local area hospital and was pronounced [sic] by attending physician at 0557 hours.

Below is a screenshot of the MPD Public Incident Report:

(2) Relative of DC police officer worked for Hillary Clinton?

Robert Wingate Robinson was one of the MPD officers on the scene of Seth Rich’s murder. On the Metropolitan Police Department’s website, he is listed as Robert Wingate-Robinson.

There’s a Nandi Robinson, 23, who lives with a Robert Robinson in Bel Air, Maryland, 57 miles from Washington, DC (Spokeo).

Nandi Robinson‘s LinkedIn page says that:

  • In 2010, she graduated with a B.A. in Economics from Michigan State University.
  • From April 2015 to April 2016, she worked as a Research Associate for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign Hillary for America.
  • From May 2016 to present, she is an IE Deputy Research Director at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in metro D.C.

Is Nandi Robinson related to MPD Officer Robert Wingate Robinson?

Seth Rich’s parents, Joel and Mary Ann, are asking people to disregard “conspiracy theories” about their son’s death, and insist that they firmly believe Seth was the victim of a random robbery as MPD claims, although the killer(s) did not take Rich’s wallet, watch, and cell phone.

Maxwell Tani of Business Insider writes:

Many top right-leaning outlets have dismissed intelligence and law-enforcement findings that Russia hacked and leaked private DNC emails in which top staffers were hostile to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 Democratic primary.

The insinuation that Rich leaked the emails has reignited the claim online that Rich’s dissatisfaction with the DNC, not Russian interference, influenced the election. On Monday, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange retweeted the Fox 5 story.

Rich’s family said Wheeler’s assertions were “unsubstantiated claims” and that they saw “no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press.”

“Even if tomorrow an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered, and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so,” the family said in a statement.

Fake Terrorist: ISIS jihadist calling for attacks on U.S. & Australia is a Jew who lived with his parents in Florida

In March 2017, in separate arrests, a black man in St. Louis and two father-and-son dual US-Israeli citizens were arrested for pretending to be anti-Semites who made a rash of bomb and other threats against Jewish organizations in the U.S., Europe, Australia and New Zealand. See:

Yesterday, I came across another case of fake threats, by a Jewish young man living with his parents in Florida, who pretended to be an ISIS/Islamic State jihadist threatening to attack the U.S. and Australia.

Elise Potaka and Luke McMahon report for Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald that on Sept. 9, 2015, the FBI arrested 20-year-old Joshua Ryne Goldberg at his parents’ home in Orange Park, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida, for pretending to be an Australian-based Islamic State (IS) jihadist and for “distribution of information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction in furtherance of an activity that constitutes a Federal crime of violence”.

The police made the arrest after an FBI joint investigation with the Australian Federal Police based on information provided by Fairfax Media — one of Australia’s largest media companies and the owner of the Sydney Morning Herald.

Calling himself “Australi Witness,” Goldberg had posed online as an IS supporter working with other jihadists on plans to attack individuals and events in Australia and the United States. He even posted pictures of a bomb that he said he was making with “2 lbs of explosives inside”.

Goldberg is Jewish, not a Muslim, and has no real-world links with the Islamic State or any other terrorist group.

US Attorney Lee Bentley III said Goldberg:

  • Instructed a confidential source how to make a bomb similar to two used in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings hoax, with nails, metal and other items dipped in rat poison.
  • Provided five web links to sites containing instructions to make explosives as part of a plot to explode a bomb at a memorial ceremony in Kansas City, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The affidavit, released by Special agent William Berry of US Customs and Border Protection, says Goldberg initially denied to police that he had distributed information on how to make a bomb, but later admitted it and “further admitted that he believed the information would create a genuine bomb”.

In the leadup to an exhibition in Garland, Texas, at which pictures of the Prophet Mohammed were to be displayed, posing as “Australi Witness,” Goldberg tweeted the event’s address and urged people to go there with “weapons, bombs or with knifes”. Two Muslim men attempted an attack at the exhibition, and were killed by police. Australi Witness then praised them online as martyrs. Australi Witness Goldberg also urged followers to target Australian cartoonist Larry Pickering, who has previously depicted the Prophet Mohammed.

Goldberg, as Australi Witness, posed online as prominent Australian lawyer, Josh Bornstein. Goldberg established a blog on the Times of Israel in the lawyer’s name and, pretending to be Bornstein, posted an inflammatory article calling for the “extermination” of Palestinians. The Times retracted and apologized for the article. For his part, Bornstein said in a public statement that “I deplore racism…I’ve fought racism since I was four years old”.

When confronted, Goldberg boasted he had fooled “that guy” Bornstein into thinking that the online radical right-wing website “Daily Stormer did it.”

According to Wikipedia, Goldberg also pretended to be these other online personas:

  • White supremacist neo-Nazi on The Daily Stormer, Reddit, and European88.
  • Radical feminist.
  • Woman-hating misogynist on Reddit, advocating corrective rape against “whores and feminazis”, and offering tips on how to do so without getting caught.

Goldberg’s Australi Witness persona fooled journalists and terrorism experts.

As an example, Rita Katz, 54 — a Jew born in Iraq who is a terrorism analyst, co-founder of the D.C.-based private intelligence firm Search International Terrorist Entities (SITE) Intelligence Group, consultant for US and foreign governments, and has testified before Congress on online terrorist activities — said “IS supporter” Australi Witness held a “prestige” position in online jihadi circles and was “part of the hard core of a group of individuals who constantly look for targets for other people to attack”.

You can’t make this stuff up! — but evidently, terrorism expert Rita Katz can.

According to Wikipedia:

  • On Sept. 15, 2015, Goldberg appeared in court where he was ordered to undergo a 30-day mental health evaluation to determine his fitness to stand trial. If tried and convicted, Goldberg faces 20 years in prison.
  • On December 14, 2015, after an examination by psychologist Lisa Feldman at Federal Detention Center, Miami, US Magistrate Judge James Klindt ruled Goldberg mentally incompetent to stand trial and Goldberg was ordered to be undergo psychiatric treatment for four months at the Federal Medical Center, Butner.
  • On June 15, 2016, appearing again before Judge Klindt, Goldberg was described by prison psychiatrists as “improving”, and that there was a “good chance” of him being returned to competency to stand trial. Another status update was scheduled by Klindt for October 15, 2016.
