Jon Stewart: ‘pizza doesn’t need cleavage to be sexy’

In October 2013, Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show had a supposedly-funny (not) segment by decidedly unfunny “Senior Women’s Issue Correspondent” Kristen Schaal on “sexy” Halloween costumes.

Schaal said “If you are going to sexually objectify yourself, what better way than to become a sexy inanimate object” like a pizza costume? An image of a blonde in a pizza dress was flashed on the screen (2:23 mark in the video below).

To which Stewart said something really strange (2:37 mark):

“I don’t know that pizza needs cleavage to make it sexy, you know what I mean.”

Schaal said, “I don’t think they go far enough. Ladies, why are we being so coy about this? Why don’t we just show everyone what we mean when we put on those sexy kitty/carrot/nurse costumes and take things to the obvious next level?”

Schaal brings out a woman encased in a giant vagina costume, and says: “I call this one ‘the sexy vagina’. And what better way to get everyone thinking of sex than to dress up as the place where sex happens?”

Then Schaal hangs a mockup of a big slice of cheese-and-pepperoni pizza on the vagina costume and says, “But we all know the one thing that makes giant vaginas sexier? Pepperoni.” At which point, Stewart is squirming with discomfort.

Reportedly, the Jon Stewart pizza video is repeatedly taken down by YouTube. Thanks to enterprising posters on Voat.co, I learned how to save the video to my computer. Here it is:

The entire unfunny segment on The Daily Show makes no sense to us innocents, until we plug in the woeful knowledge some of us have acquired some three years after that Daily Show was aired — Pizzagate’s world of pedophile code-words where, according to The Daily Sheeple and others on the Alternate Media:

  • pizza = girl
  • cheese = little girl
  • hotdog = boy
  • pasta = little boy

Urban Dictionary confirms the meanings of some of the code-words, including:

Did you know that Jon Stewart and Anthony Weiner once were roommates? After college, they shared an apartment in Soho and have been friends for many years.

Weiner is the disgraced former New York Congressman, husband of Hillary’s right-hand aide Huma Abedin, and convicted felon. On May 19, 2017, Weiner pleaded guilty in federal court to transferring obscene material to a minor — a 15-year-old girl (“pizza”) in North Carolina. Under a plea agreement, Weiner faces a sentence of 21 to 27 months, and will be required to register as a sex offender. Sentencing is scheduled for September 8, 2017.

Planned Parenthood Will Close 4 Iowa Clinics Due To New State Restrictions

mammograms

Don’t’ believe the fearmongering of this article from Refinery29. There are still PLENTY of health care clinics in Iowa. My quick search found the following:

The Iowa Association of Rural Health Clinics has a list of over 140 rural health clinics in Iowa. And of course, there are the countless other municipal health care clinics as well as private health care facilities.

Plenty of facilities for Iowa residents to receive “vital health services” that only Planned Parenthood can provide.

From Yahoo (Refinery29): Following in Texas’ disastrous footsteps, four Planned Parenthood clinics will close in Iowa because of the state government’s actions to partially defund the health organization. Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad signed a health and human services budget that discontinued the state’s federal Medicaid family planning waiver and replaced it with a state program that excludes any clinic that offers abortions.

Planned Parenthood of the Heartland announced on Thursday that it will close one third of its 12 health centers in Iowa this summer, leaving an estimated 14,600 patients in Quad Cities, Burlington, Keokuk, and Sioux City without their current healthcare provider.

Iowa’s $1.77 billion health and human services budget keeps roughly the same amount of funds for family planning as the previous year, but places new restrictions on which facilities can receive money to cover low-income patients’ health care. Because the Hyde Amendment already prevents federal funds from paying for abortion, the budget change is the latest attempt by Republican politicians to shut down abortion providers.

Defunding Planned Parenthood and forcing clinics to shutter keeps low-income women from accessing vital health services such as contraception and cancer screenings, as the organization says abortions make up roughly 3% all services it performs.

Back in 2011, Texas took similarly drastic measures, cutting its family planning budget by more than $70 million and directing it away from clinics that provided abortion. Across the state, 25% of all family planning clinics closed, and about 30,000 fewer women had access to a health clinic two years later.

Clinic closures in the Lone Star State also forced women to drive four times farther to have an abortion. A Texas Policy Evaluation Project (TxPEP) study found that Texas women whose closest clinic stayed open drove an average of 22 miles, while women whose closest clinic closed drove an average of 85 miles for health services. The women furthest from an open clinic had to drive more than 250 miles.

Iowa’s new regulations forced clinics to close right away, which foreshadows what will happen if the healthcare bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives earlier in May becomes law. The GOP’s American Health Care Act proposes cutting off Medicaid reimbursements Planned Parenthood currently receives for treating low-income patients for one year unless its clinics stop performing abortions.

“We have seen what happens in states like Texas, and now in Iowa, when politicians attack access to care at Planned Parenthood — it’s devastating, and sometimes deadly, for the women who are left with nowhere to turn for care,” Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, chief medical officer at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement to Refinery29. “I am concerned about the health and well-being of the people in Iowa who now can no longer turn to their trusted health care provider.”

Texas has already proven that when a state cuts off Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid funds, it forces clinics to close and keeps women from getting the health services they need. Now, Iowa has followed suit and essential care for women is at stake in one more state.

A liberal explains why she’s leaving the SJW cult

There is hope for America.

The Left’s vile behaviors since Hillary Clinton’s electoral loss to Donald Trump are so over-the-top, they are alienating some liberals.

Keri Smith is one of them. In a confessional essay, Smith calls the Left’s cultural Marxist ideology “a cult” and points to the hypocrisy of “social justice warriors (SJW)” whose hateful and murderous speech and behavior belie their professed values of equality, justice, liberty, tolerance and love — something that we on FOTM repeatedly have noted.

The most important part of Smith’s essay is her pointing out that the Left are trodding the dangerous path of dehumanizing their political opponents. (Recall Hillary Clinton’s dehumanization of Trump supporters as “deplorables”.) By dehumanizing, i.e., regarding other human beings as less than human “things,” violence and murder become justified. Don’t we slaughter livestock for food because they’re nonhuman “animals”?

That’s the tactic the Left have employed against the unborn — that the unborn human life growing in a woman’s womb is not a human person, but is merely a lump of bodily tissue, much like toenail that we clip and discard.

Smith writes in Medium on May 13, 2017 (I supplied the bold and red-color emphasis):

I’ve been undergoing a pretty significant change in the way I interpret the world [….] I know some of my friends have wondered why I’ve lately been so critical of the left, my home, so I wanted to share with you what a vocal part of my particular and admittedly self-selected echo chamber is like.

Smith then reproduced what appears to be a Facebook post by a fellow liberal:

Smith continues:

For the record, this is not illustrative of all of the left or even and especially of all of my liberal friends. […] I was talking with a friend who is also liberal and she does not see this kind of stuff regularly, like I do […. M]y vantage point may shed some light on why my beliefs are changing, and on where I see things possibly headed.

I see increasing numbers of so-called liberals cheering censorship and defending violence as a response to speech. I see seemingly reasonable people wishing death on others and laughing at escalating suicide and addiction rates of the white working class. I see liberal think pieces written in opposition to expressing empathy or civility in interactions with those with whom we disagree. I see 63 million Trump voters written off as “nazis” who are okay to target with physical violence. I see concepts like equality and justice being used as a mask for resentful, murderous rage.

The most pernicious aspect of this evolution of the left, is how it seems to be changing people, and how rapidly since the election. […] How easy is it for ordinary humans to commit atrocious acts? History teaches us it’s pretty damn easy when you are blinded to your own hypocrisy. When you believe you are morally superior, when you have dehumanized those you disagree with, you can justify almost anything. In a particularly vocal part of the left, justification for dehumanizing and committing violence against those on the right has already begun.

I don’t yet know what to call this part of the left. Maajid Nawaz calls them the “Regressive Left.” Others call them SJWs (Social Justice Warriors) or the Alt-Left. The ideology is post-modernist cultural marxism, and it operates as a secular religion. Most are indoctrinated in liberal elite colleges, though many are being indoctrinated online these days. It has its own dogma and jargon, meant to make you feel like a good person, and used to lecture others on their ‘sin.’ “Check your privilege”- much like “mansplaining” and “gaslighting”- all at one time useful terms- have over time lost a lot of their meaning. These days I see them most frequently being abused as weaponized ad hominem attacks on a person’s immutable identity markers….a way to avoid making an argument, while simultaneously claiming an unearned moral highground in a discussion.

I have been wondering why more people on the left are not speaking up against violence, in favor of free exchange of ideas and dialogue, in favor of compassion. But I know why. I was in the cult. Part of it is that you are a true believer, and part of it is that you are fearful of being called an apostate — in being trashed as a sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, fascist, white supremacist nazi. A friend recently wrote to me privately to say they find my latest posts “refreshing,” and that they believe in free speech, but as someone who works in entertainment, they can’t say anything that might cause them to lose their job. As someone who has gone through and is still going through a change in my underlying systems of belief, I can say this: when you finally get past fear, it is so liberating. After a lot of self-reflection, I eventually came to the opinion that if I lose friends or jobs over trying to speak and find the truth in situations, and to do so in a way that reflects my belief in compassion, then perhaps those were not friends or jobs that were healthy for my growth.

Since shedding the prison of my former ideology, I have a renewed passion for reading, a newfound interest in philosophy, psychology, history and spirituality. Instead of trying to fix others, these days I try to focus on improving myself, which I can tell you is a *much* harder though less futile endeavor. I question myself daily. I try to make a gratitude list daily. I try to meditate, although I admit I’m pretty shitty at it so far. I observe my emotional response to stimuli, then try to let it pass and practice empathy in my disagreements with others. Many times I fail, but over time it is getting easier (though I doubt it will ever be easy). I believe I finally understand that quote, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” It is not enough to speak about a belief in equality, justice, liberty, tolerance and love if by your actions you are illustrating the opposite by dehumanizing people, calling for their murder, justifying physical violence against them. Your actions speak louder than words.

[…] I believe taking on the task of honestly assessing and trying to improve my character, and speaking up for principles of equality, justice, free speech, liberty, peace and love in a WAY that supports those principles rather than increasing resentment, hatred, and murderous rage, is the way to change the world. If that makes me a moron, a naive peacenik, a privileged bigot -a heretic- in your ideology, so be it.

Keri Smith is to be applauded for her clarity of vision, honesty, and integrity. What a shame that she has seen the truth, but not her fellow liberals in the MSM.

Sunday Devotional: ‘unclean spirits came out of many possessed people’

Acts 8:5-8

Philip went down to the city of Samaria
and proclaimed the Christ to them.
With one accord, the crowds paid attention to what was said by Philip
when they heard it and saw the signs he was doing.
For unclean spirits, crying out in a loud voice,
came out of many possessed people,
and many paralyzed or crippled people were cured.
There was great joy in that city.

Exorcists often say real cases of demonic possession are rare, but the above passage from the Acts of the Apostles says otherwise.

As an example, Catholic News Service reports on Feb. 17, 2005 that:

“Two Italian exorcists preparing priests and seminarians to respond to reports of demonic possession have affirmed that the devil is real and can possess people, but it does not happen as often as many people think.”

The late Gabriele Amorth, Vatican’s chief exorcist who passed last September 16 at age 91, said again and again in his writings and interviews that while demonic possession is on the rise across the world because “Today Satan rules the world” and “The masses no longer believe in God,” real cases of possession nevertheless are rare.

But Fr. Amorth emphasized that demonic attacks come in forms other than demonic possession — the full possession by a demon or demons of a human’s body, not the soul. There are five other types of demonic attacks:

  1. External physical pain caused by Satan: Demonic activity that manifests as physical pain, such as the physical beatings and torment demons inflicted on some saints, e.g., St. John of the Cross and St. (Padre) Pio.
  2. Diabolical oppression: Severe to mild events that plague the individual where “There is no possession, loss of consciousness, or involuntary action and word.” Some examples are Job’s severe afflictions and St. Paul’s thorn in his flesh (II Cor 12:7).
  3. Diabolic obsession: “Symptoms include sudden attacks, at times ongoing, of obsessive thoughts, sometimes even rationally absurd, but of such nature that the victim is unable to free himself.” Moreover, “the obsessed person lives in a perpetual state of prostration, desperation, and attempts at suicide. Almost always obsession influences dreams.”
  4. Diabolic infestation: “Infestations affect houses, things, or animals.”
  5. Diabolical subjugation or dependence: This is the classic Faustian bargain or pact with the Devil. In Fr. Amorth’s words, “people fall into this form of evil when thy voluntarily submit to Satan. The two most common forms of dependence are the blood pact with the devil and the consecration to Satan.” Fr. Malachi Martin called this total or perfect possession. Since the human, with full consent and assent, voluntarily invites in the demon(s), we would not expect the totally possessed person to seek an exorcist. In other words, the cases of demonic possession that come to the attention of exorcists are only of the partial or incomplete variety, which is a frightening thought.

So what’s the antidote?

Jesus Christ.

Forever and always.

John 14:15-21

Jesus said to his disciples:
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
And I will ask the Father,
and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always,
the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept,
because it neither sees nor knows him.
But you know him, because he remains with you,
and will be in you.
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
In a little while the world will no longer see me,
but you will see me, because I live and you will live.
On that day you will realize that I am in my Father
and you are in me and I in you.
Whoever has my commandments and observes them
is the one who loves me.
And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father,
and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”

Love the Lord thy God fiercely — with your whole heart, your whole soul, your whole mind, and with all your strength.

And may the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,

Jihad-watcher Robert Spencer poisoned by Leftist in Iceland

Robert Spencer is an expert on radical Islam, a frequent guest commenter on Fox News, and has given seminars to various law enforcement units in the United States. An author of a number of books on Islam, including two New York Times bestsellers, Spencer is the founder of the Jihad Watch blog.

In a post on Jihad Watch, Spencer wrote that on May 11, 2017, shortly after he had delivered a lecture on the jihad threat in Reykjavik, Iceland, he was poisoned by a “young leftist” who approached him in the Grand Hotel’s bar.

Spencer writes:

It happened after the event, when my security chief, the organizers of the event, and Jihad Watch writer Christine Williams, who had also been invited to speak, went with me to a local restaurant to celebrate the success of the evening.

At this crowded Reykjavik establishment, I was quickly recognized. A young Icelander called me by name, shook my hand, and said he was a big fan. Shortly after that, another citizen of that famously genteel and courteous land also called me by name, shook my hand, and said “F**k you.”

We took that marvelous Icelandic greeting as a cue to leave. But the damage had already been done. About fifteen minutes later, when I got back in my hotel room, I began to feel numbness in my face, hands, and feet. I began trembling and vomiting. My heart was racing dangerously. I spent the night in a Reykjavik hospital.

What had happened quickly became clear, and was soon confirmed by a hospital test: one of these local Icelanders who had approached me (probably the one who said he was a big fan, as he was much closer to me than the “F**k you” guy) had dropped drugs into my drink. I wasn’t and am not on any other medication, and so there wasn’t any other explanation of how these things had gotten into my bloodstream.

For several days thereafter I was ill, but I did get to Reykjavik’s police station and gave them a bigger case than they have seen in good awhile. The police official with whom I spoke took immediate steps to identify and locate the principal suspects and obtain the restaurant’s surveillance video.

Iceland is a small country. Everyone knows everyone else. And so as it happened, I was quickly able to discover the identity, phone number, and Facebook page of the primary suspect, the young man who claimed he was a “big fan.” I don’t intend to call him.  Icelandic police will be contacting him soon enough, if they haven’t done so already.

However, I did look at his Facebook page, and as I expected, I saw nothing that might indicate that he really was a “big fan” of my work, or that he held any views out of the mainstream — which is, courtesy of Iceland’s political and media elites, dominated entirely by the Left.

The most likely scenario is that this young man, or whoever drugged me, heard that a notorious “racist” was coming to Reykjavik, by chance saw me in the restaurant, and decided to teach me a lesson with some of the illegal drugs that are as plentiful in Reykjavik as they are anywhere else.

I should have seen it coming. After all, my visit had triggered a firestorm of abuse in the Icelandic press, all based on American Leftist talking points. Every story about my visit had the same elements: the notice that the SPLC claims that I purvey “hate speech,” which is a subjective judgment used to shut down dissent from the establishment line; the fact that I am banned from Britain, with no mention of the key detail that I was banned for saying that Islam has doctrines of violence (which is like being banned for saying water is wet) and for the crime of supporting Israel; and the false claim that I incited the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik to kill (in reality, I’m no more responsible for Breivik’s murders than the Beatles are for Charles Manson’s). After the event, one article even featured a big photo of Breivik, but quoted nary a thing I said that evening.

Not a single Icelandic media outlet that ran a story about my coming or about the event itself contacted me for comment, much less for rebuttal to the charges they made against me. One TV station did air an interview with me in which the interviewer refused to believe that I did not feel responsible for the Breivik murders, and asked me about them again and again.

After the event, articles in the Icelandic press included quotes from the 50 protesters, but none included even a single quotation or description of anything we had actually said. None quoted any of the 500 brave Icelanders who braved the hatred of the politically correct elites to come to the Grand Hotel to hear me and Ms. Williams – a staggeringly large number in a country of 300,000 people.

It’s clear: jihad and Islamization are not subjects that Icelandic politicians and media opinion-makers want Icelanders to discuss.

That’s all the more reason why it must be discussed.

But meanwhile, I learned my lesson. The lesson I learned was that media demonization of those who dissent from the Leftist line is direct incitement to violence. By portraying me and others who raise legitimate questions about jihad terror and Sharia oppression as racist, bigoted Islamophobes, without allowing us a fair hearing, the media in Iceland and elsewhere in the West is actively endangering those who dare to dissent. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Center for American Progress and the rest who devote so much money, time and attention to demonizing “Islamophobes” are painting huge targets on our backs.

[…] I’m certain that whoever poisoned me in Iceland went away feeling happy over what he had done. If he told anyone what he did, I’m sure he was hailed as a hero. I’m also aware that many who read this will be thrilled at the fact that I became seriously ill. That in itself is a sign of how degenerate and evil the Left has become.

All over the West, as Leftist students riot and physically menace conservative speakers and Leftist spokesmen indulge in the most hysterical rhetoric to defame their foes, politicians cower in fear and decline to discuss these issues, only ensuring that the problems I identified when I spoke in Reykjavik will continue to grow in Iceland and elsewhere.

As they were rising to power in Germany, the Nazis indoctrinated their young followers with the same message: those who oppose us are evil. Those who brutalize them are doing a great thing. The Left’s demonization of its opponents today will lead to exactly the same thing. It already has for me, in beautiful Reykjavik.

The hospital’s medical report on Spencer says he tested positive for amphetamines and MDMA (Ecstasy).

Democrat for Arizona Governor Noah Dyer is proud of his promiscuity, adultery and group sex

Even though I’ve chronicled America’s descent into moral filth for some 8 years now, every day on FOTM, some news still surprise me.

This is one.

On November 6, 2018, all of Arizona’s executive officers will be up for election, as well as a U.S. Senate seat and all of Arizona’s nine seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Incumbent first-term Republican Governor Doug Ducey, who became governor on January 5, 2015, will run for re-election. Among Ducey’s Demonrat challengers is a man named Noah Dyer, who prefers being called Noé, the Spanish form of the Hebrew name Noah.

Dyer describes himself on his campaign website as “an executive, educator, entrepreneur, and author” and “currently the Vice President of Marketing Strategies at a prominent Phoenix ad agency”. Dyer’s LinkedIn page is more forthcoming on his current job: he’s VP of Marketing Strategies for the ad agency On Advertising for less than two years, since June 2015.

He also describes himself as having “served a Mormon mission in Costa Rica before becoming agnostic,” “has been married, divorced, a homeless person” and “the proud father” of four children.

But that isn’t what Dyer is really known for.

On his campaign website, Dyer boasts that he is (in capital letters):

“A REFRESHINGLY HONEST CANDIDATE FOR A MODERN ARIZONA”

“Refreshingly honest” about what?

On his campaign website, Noah Dyer pronounces that he:

  • Is sexually promiscuous: “Noah has had both deep and casual sexual experiences with all kinds of women.  He is an advocate of open relationships.”
  • Engages in group sex.
  • Has no respect for the institution of marriage, but commits adultery: “He’s had group sex and sex with married women.”
  • Sex texts à la Anthony Weiner: “He [Dyer] has sent and received intimate texts and pictures”.
  • Is proud of his sexual deviance and wants us to be just like him, all in the name of “self-expression” — the contemporary euphemism for satanist Aleister Crowley’s “No as thou wilt”: “Noah is unapologetic about his sexual choices, and wishes others the same safety and confidence as they express themselves.”

To no surprise, the “Progressive” media have poured on their praise and admiration for Dyer, which he proudly displays on his website:

“Dyer’s openness is obviously unusual in a politician.” -Slate

“Without a doubt, we need more honest politicians.” -The Doctors

“Dyer is breaking entirely new ground.” -Huffington Post

“Everybody can appreciate someone who’s an open book.” -FoxNews.com

And if Arizona’s voters are not perturbed by Noah Dyer’s personal mores and sexual behavior, they should at least consider this:

“Noah has a negative net worth, given that he has nearly $100,000 in student loan debt. His income based loan repayment plan is actually insufficient to cover the interest, and his balance grows every year.” (Source: Noah Dyer’s website)

If Noah Dyer is voted to public office, Arizona voters should not be surprised by his fiscal incompetence for he has already and amply forewarned them with his “refreshing” honesty.

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

In the midst of the Democratic National Convention last July, WikiLeaks spoiled the Demonrats’ lovefest by releasing some 2,000 Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails.

Those emails show the DNC to be thoroughly corrupt. Long before Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Democratic primary elections and became her party’s presumptive presidential nominee, the DNC had become her tool, colluding with journalists to shield her, and working to undermine her Democrat opponent Bernie Sanders. (See “Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary”)

At about 4:19 a.m. on Sunday, July 10, 2016, a 27 year-old DNC staffer named Seth Conrad Rich was shot and killed in the 2100 block of Flagler Place NW in Washington, DC. The murder did not appear to be robbery-related because the killer(s) did not take Rich’s wallet, watch, and phone.

Rich, reportedly a supporter of Bernie Sanders, did voter outreach for the DNC.

Below is the D.C. Metropolitan Police’s poster offering a reward for information about the murder.

Ten months later, Rich’s murder is still unsolved.

Here are the reasons why the murder of Seth Rich is yet another case of Arkancide.

(1) John Podesta emailS On punishing leakers:

On February 21 and 22, 2015, there was an exchange of emails between Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman John Podesta and Joel Benenson, a pollster and chief strategist of Hillary’s campaign, about damaging leaks from the campaign.

Benenson initiated the exchange with an email on the night of February 21 (sent at 10:12 PM) to Podesta, in which he bemoaned a story about Hillary or the campaign, calling it “by far the most damaging story and most damaging type of story we can have.”

The next morning, Feb. 22, Podesta responded with an email saying that the story had been leaked by “big mouths blabbing” — “someone on the inside was talking”.

Benenson replied:

“I think Robby [Mook, Hillary’s campaign manager] rightly says that a lot of our leaks are coming through job searches we’re doing…. I think we have to make examples now of people who have violated the trust of HRC and the rest of the team. People going forward need to know there are stiff consequences for leaking, self-promotion, unauthorized talking with the press.”

To which Podesta replied:

“Agree…. I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it.

See the exchange of emails for yourself on WikiLeaks.

(2) Seth Rich leaked DNC emails to wikileaks

“People need to know there are stiff consequences for leaking,” wrote Hillary’s campaign chief strategist Joel Benenson.

“I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it,” wrote Hillary’s campaign chair John Podesta.

Below are two pieces of evidence that point to Seth Rich as the DNC insider who leaked the damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks, and was murdered (“stiff consequences”; “make an example of”) for it:

(A) On August 9, 2016, in an interview on Dutch television Nieuwsuur, WikiLeaks‘ founder Julian Assange effectively admits Seth Rich was the source of the leaked DNC emails. He said:

Whistleblowers have gone to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks, as a 27-year-old that works for the DNC was shot in the back, murdered, just two weeks ago, for unknown reasons, as he was walking down the street in Washington.”

Asked by his interviewer if Rich’s murder was a robbery, Assange says “No” and that “Our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.”

(B) Yesterday, Fox5 Washington, DC, reports:

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death….

Wheeler, a former D.C. police homicide detective, …believes there is a cover-up and the [D.C.] police department has been told to back down from the investigation.

‘The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,’ said Wheeler. ‘They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.’

When we asked Wheeler if his sources have told him there is information that links Rich to Wikileaks, he said, ‘Absolutely. Yeah. That’s confirmed.’

Wheeler also told us, ‘I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday].”

By “Tuesday,” Wheeler means today, May 16, 2017.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of Seth Rich’s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich had made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the DC Metropolitan Department.
