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.

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.

Hillary Clinton's pollster Benenson Strategy Group says she is tanking; Trump supporters unstoppable

On October 18, 2016, the hacker(s) Anonymous claims that “a source inside the [Hillary] Clinton campaign has leaked an internal polling document that shows her support is gone”.
https://youtu.be/jbcBgwRBMAs?t=31s
The document is a report titled Salvage Program from the Benenson Strategy Group, the pollster and strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. The report looks professional and credible. It’s called Salvage Program because its goal is to “salvage” — to rescue, save, recover, restore — Hillary’s campaign, which is tanking.
In the words of the report (my words are in green):

“At this point Donald Trump has both momentum and enthusiasm. Distrust in the mainstream media is blunting the impact of the collective polling narrative [which implies that the polls we are told are fraudulent — their data manufactured to favor Hillary]. As Election Day approaches, Hillary Clinton’s favorable ratings have crashed to historic lows (12%) in non-partisans and Donald Trump is consolidating support (97% of LV Republican-identifying respondents are either enthusiastic or very enthusiastic about voting for Trump).”

Before we go any further, let’s take a look at what Benenson Strategy Group is, so as to determine if the Salvage Program report is credible.
To begin, an AFP report on Oct. 19, 2016 names Joel Benenson as a pollster for Hillary Clinton and quotes him:

“we don’t appear to be generating the excitement or a sense of a fresh, new candidacy we had hoped for.”

joel-benenson
Wikipedia identifies Benenson Strategy Group (BSG) as “a strategic consulting firm,” i.e., a company that uses polling data to provide advice on political strategy to politicians, political parties, and business corporations. The CEO (and presumably the founder) of BSG is Joel Benenson, 64 — a “pollster and consultant known for his role as a strategist for Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. He is currently the chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.” Born “in New York City to a Jewish family,” Benenson is:

“the CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, a strategic consulting firm, and serves as a communications and polling advisor to the [Obama] White House. He has been a strategist for U.S. senators, governors and mayors, as well as Fortune 500 companies. He was a pollster for the DCCC in 2006, when the Democrats won back the majority in the House of Representatives. […] Benenson is also the Co-Founder of iModerate Research Technologies. In January 2015, Hillary Clinton hired Benenson and Robby Mook as strategists.”

The Benenson Strategy Group’s report, Salvage Program, is 7 pages long, and is marked “Do Not Distribute – Do Not Copy” at the bottom of each page. Fellowship of the Minds is posting information from Salvage Program because we believe this constitutes a ‘fair use’ of copyrighted material as provided for in section 107 of the US Copyright Law.
Here’s a screenshot of the top of page one of Salvage Program, showing BSG’s address and the logos of BSG and the Clinton Foundation (who pays BSG):
benenson-strategy-group-logo

Note: On its “Contact” page, BSG has a different address for its location in D.C.: 1901 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Suite 1000, Washington, DC 20006; phone (202)339-6060. According to a Yahoo search, both the 1901 Pennsylvania Ave. and the 1000 Potomac St. addresses are BSG’s. It appears the 1000 Potomac St. address is not for the public. 1000 Potomac St. is the Flour Mill Building, comprised of retail stores on the first floor, and offices and condos above.

benenson-strategy-group-phone-no-202-339-6060
BSG’s Salvage Program report begins by specifying that “no skews or narrative screens were employed”:

  • “Skews” refers to pollsters skewing polling samples to favor Democrats by overpolling or overrepresenting Democrats, i.e., having a larger percentage of Democrats in the polling sample than the actual percentage of Democrats in the U.S. population.
  • A “narrative” is a story; an account. To “screen” is to “conceal, protect, shelter”. Polling results are translated by the pollster and the media into a “narrative” because too many Americans are uninformed about the methodology and statistics of public opinion surveys/polls, and so rely on having the polling data explained to them. “Narrative screen” refers to a misleading textual account or narrative of the polling data.

Translated into plain English, “no skews or narrative screens were employed” means the BSG report Salvage Program is delivering the truth of what BSG has found in its polls, not the lies that we are told everyday from pollsters who skew their polling samples, and from the MSM’s misleading, contrived narrative accounts of the polling numbers.
Let’s begin with the “Executive Summary” of the polling data discovered by Benenson Strategy Group — Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist and pollster:

Executive Overview: Hillary Clinton Flash-Crash to 12% Favorable, Losing 19-77% Nationally
At this point Donald Trump has both momentum and enthusiasm. Distrust in the mainstream media is blunting the impact of the collective polling narrative. As Election Day approaches, Hillary Clinton’s favorable ratings have crashed to historic lows (12%) in non-partisans and Donald Trump is consolidating support (97% of LV Republican-identifying respondents are either enthusiastic or very enthusiastic about voting for Trump).
Among independents, Hillary voters who are exposed to any alternative media (73%) are aware of the WikiLeaks emails and find them either disturbing (54%) or deeply disturbing (18%). Among liberal-identifying whites, support is shifting from Hillary (-27 since October 1st) to Donald Trump (78%) or Jill Stein (21%).
For voters who solely consume mainstream media only 28% are aware of the WikiLeaks emails and of those, only 8% are aware of the content. For these voters Clinton leads Trump by +8.
Minority voters are less likely to consume alternative media (only 14%) and are less likely to be aware of the email leak (only 18% for males, 9% for females). Even with this group, enthusiasm is down 63 points compared to October 2008.
On other fronts, the counter-narrative [against Trump] is failing as well. Most heavy consumers of social media understand that the allegations against Donald Trump of sexual misconduct have largely been debunked (77%). We understand that communications strategies in that space have
been unable to reduce the impact of this messaging. Worse, among white males in telephone polling 93% of them either approve (72%) or strongly approve (21%) of Donald Trump’s hot-mic tape.
Only 39% of women approve of them however a majority (64%) say they ‘understand that confident men talk that way.’ In effect, these allegations have been diffused.
On a positive note, most respondents who were liberal-leaning (83%) or Independent (59%) were unaware of the messaging front concerning Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct. While the vast majority (88%) were aware of consensual extra-marital relationships, the mainstream media approach to the stories has left only 8% of liberal-leaning voters and only 19% of independents aware of the allegationsof rape.
On a disturbing note, some 70% of Republican-leaning voters are aware bussed-in voting, false-face operations, and dead-man’s-party registration drives. This may necessitate severe strategy changes for November.

Here are the findings of Benenson Strategy Group’s accurate (non-skewed, non-narrative screened) polls:
(1) Support for Hillary is “collapsing”:

  • Both “soft” and “hard” support.
  • The “collapse” is “steady and pronounced” after the first presidential debate.
  • Damage from reports of Hillary’s ill health “has metastasized” — “Hillary is widely considered sick, untrustworthy, and [even] most Hillary-leaning Democrats would vote to replace her”:
    • Only 21% believe Hillary to be healthy, with no ailment(s); 4% are not sure.
    • The majority (75%) believe she is sick (18% pneumonia, 16% brain cancer, 16% vascular dementia, 13% anti-social personality disorder, 10% Parkison’s disease, 2% Alzheimer’s disease).
  • Among those who know about the WikiLeaks emails, on whether Hillary “hates ‘everyday people’, 52% answered “yes”, 15% answered “no”, 33% answered “not sure”.

(2) Support for Trump is surging (“momentum”), enthusiastic, and “virtually unstoppable”:

  • The Democrats have failed in their schemes to damage Trump:
    • Most Americans believe he has the temperament to be President: 33% say “he fights the mainstream media’s lies”; 27% “his temperament is winning”; 21% “he is a strong, Alpha-male personality”; 12% “a president willing to get angry is what we need now”; 5% “his temperament will frighten America’s enemies”.
  • Trump voters are “virtually unstoppable”:
    • Asked if disastrous events such as “threat of war,” “natural disaster,” “active riots/civil unrest”, “lethal epidemiological agent (smallpox)” would stop them from voting, 74% of “hard Trump supporters” answered “None”.
    • In contrast, 0% of “hard Clinton supporters” answered “None”.

(3) The Alternative Media have come of age:

  • Americans who avail themselves of the Alternative Media know about Hillary’s unsecured email server, the WikiLeaks emails, Democrat voter fraud, and other information the MSM don’t tell or don’t emphasize. They are supporters of Trump, including even some Democrats.
  • Hillary supporters truly are low-information voters — they rely solely on the MSM and don’t pay attention to social media and the alternative media: “voters who solely consume mainstream media only 28% are aware of the WikiLeaks emails and of those, only 8% are aware of the content. For these voters Clinton leads Trump by +8.”
  • That explains Hillary’s support among racial minorities because they are “less likely to consume alternative media (only 14%) and are less likely to be aware of the email leak (only 18% for males,
    9% for females).” But even with this group, their enthusiasm for Hillary is falling — “down 63 points compared to October 2008.”

(4) Americans are catching on to the fake polls:
The BSG report says “The public has lost faith in polling” because:

“Poll-driven narratives have been pushed too far, alienating most of the voting population. The use of polls as a psychological weapon has also been noticed (especially on social media). As the poll-gap narrative becomes ever more extreme, obvious visible evidence (rally-size, yard-signs, bumper-stickers, memes / social-media posts) becomes more and more obviously contradictory. Attempts at shaming outspoken poll-deniers such as Bill Mitchell on Twitter have failed in 2016 where they succeeded (Dean Chambers) in 2012. We are in uncharted territory.

Even hooks into non-philosophically compromised pro-Republican polling outfits such as FOX, Rasmussen, and Gravis have not produced

substantial results.”

In other words, the phony polls are not working because the American people are not stupid — we can see that the polling data contradict the HUGE turnouts for Trump rallies compared with Hillary’s anemic rallies.
The one thing about BSG’s Salvage Program report that had puzzled me when I first read it last night was the report’s last part on “Salvage Options” — BSG’s recommendation on how to “salvage” Hillary’s failing presidential campaign.
Not recommended are the following:

  • Red Dawn: a (simulated) foreign invasion.
  • Cobalt Rain: a “radiological attack”.
  • BLRiot: Referring to BlackLivesMatter riots, the report said: “while staged civil unrest could prevent pockets of America from voting, the damage [from the Alternative Media’s uncovering of the riots being staged] is too wide-spread.”
  • Zikpocalypse: Referring to the zika virus epidemic, the report says: “Improved strains of ZIKV have been delivered and we have disseminated them to operatives. Unfortunately this will suppress women voters more than men (even as ZIKV2 is lethal in adults). This would hurt Hillary Clinton and Trump voters are willing to risk lethal pathogens to vote.”
  • Sharia Escalation: Referring to Muslim provocations, the report says: “States have blocked key immigrant operatives. Without the required Muslim-Islamist population in place, the IE plan will not be sufficiently impactful.” I have no idea what “IE plan” means.
  • Unnatural Disaster: “HAARP is in skeleton crew mode. Subterranean thermobaric devices in fracking mines are untested. Surveys suggest this might not stop Trump voters.”

After reviewing all the unrecommended methods to “salvage” Hillary’s campaign, the BSG report concluded with one “salvage” recommendation. Called “FIRESIGN,” the recommendation is to launch a Project Blue Beam-type fake extraterrestrial event. In the words of the BSG report (p. 6):

“For almost two decades the Department of Defense and NASA have coordinated on a black book project under the codename FIRESIGN.
FIRESIGN’s aim is to create a religious “awe effect” in enemy populations to create an instantaneous psychological soft-kill (abject submission). The operation uses high powered lasers to project real-seeming images on the sodium layer 100km above the surface. These images can cover hundreds or even thousands of square miles and can appear completely real, three dimensional, and can move.
These visual cues are augmented with pulsed ELF electromagnetic emissions (see: PROJECT SANGUINE) that attack the specific areas of the prefrontal cortex that are stimulated during religious
experience. In limited tests, subjects have been able to be overwhelmed on both axis of vastness (an overwhelming of the subject’s frame of reference) and a powerful need-for-accommodation. The mix of these two will produce inaction, lack of focus on self or individual interaction, and gross transformations in mental equilibrium (a Road-to-Damascus Experience).”

There have been discussions in the Alternative Media about Project Blue Beam — a conspiracy theory by Quebecois journalist Serge Monast, which he published in his book Project Blue Beam (NASA). Monast claimed that NASA will attempt to implement a New World Order via a gigantic “space show” of a technologically-simulated Second Coming, wherein three-dimensional holographic laser projections will be beamed all over the planet to lead people to follow a false New Age religion with the Antichrist at its head. Monast died of a heart attack in 1996, which his believers suspect was an assassination.
I was puzzled by why the BSG report would recommend in effect Project Blue Beam, for if there’s a (simulated) ET invasion, wouldn’t that work to Trump’s advantage? In a crisis of that magnitude, why would Americans turn to a sickly old woman instead of a kick-ass alpha-male male?
The answer is in one of the BSG polling questions.
There was a second question asking “hard Trump supporters” what disastrous event would stop them from voting. Recall that in a previous question, an astonishing 74% of “hard Trump supporters” answered “None”.
But another question listing different disasters got a lower percentage (17%) of “None” responses from “hard Trump supporters”.
Presented with four epic disasters, the percentages of “hard Trump supporters” who said the disaster would stop them from voting are:

  • 8% for “shooting war in neighborhood”
  • 16% for “Biblical event”
  • 17% for “external invading force”
  • 38% for “attack by extraterrestrials”

benenson-poll-on-what-events-would-lead-trump-supporters-not-vote
In other words, “hard Trump supporters” are so determined to turn out to vote for him on election day that only an extreme event of an attack by extraterrestrials would stop 38% of them from voting.
That is why, based on its own polling findings, the Benenson Strategy Group’s Salvage Program made the recommendation that FIRESIGN — a simulated ET invasion — be used to salvage Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
You can read Salvage Program for yourself here. I’ve also uploaded it to FOTM‘s media library for safekeeping. See “Benenson Strategy Group Salvage Program“.
Is the BSG report genuine or a very skillfully put-together and professional-looking fake? You be the judge.
I do find it noteworthy that the BSG report’s poll findings are consistent with what was said in that memo to Patrick Murray, the director of Monmouth University’s Polling Institute. Alas, my post on that memo, “Leaked Monmouth U. polling memo: Democrats ‘despondent’; Hillary unpopular with Millennials & minorities, seen as a ‘lying harpy’,” as well as the original source — the memo on Scribd — are both scrubbed. I took down that post because I was threatened with a lawsuit to “Cease & Desist” by an email from Monmouth University’s attorney.

According to Forbidden Knowledge TV, as of Oct. 28, 2016, “The Benenson Group has neither confirmed nor denied the authenticity of the Salvage Program.”
