CONFIRMED: S. Korean National Intelligence Service meddled in 2012 election

The United States controls much of what happens in South Korea, while China controls virtually nothing in North Korea.

South Korea’s National Intelligence Agency (NIS), formerly the Korean Central Intelligence Agency has admitted using psych-ops during the 2012 South Korean Presidential election which helped the hard-liner Park Geun-hye win the vote over her more peace minded rival Moon Jae-in. The NIS used bogus social media profiles to distribute  propaganda targeting voters with misinformation aimed at swaying the vote away from Moon and towards the militant Park. The NIS now admits it in fact swayed the vote using these illegal methods.

The NIS released the reported admitted its criminal culpability in election tampering as President Moon who finally won a fair election in May of 2017, has ordered an investigation of the agency which is modelled on and maintains extremely close contact with America’s CIA.

Moon pledged to end a culture of corruption which ordinary Koreans have been appalled with. This rage saw President Park’s time in office attracting mass protests before she was impeached and imprisoned in March of 2017.

Park herself is the daughter of former President Park Chung-hee, a far-right former South Korean dictator who in spite of a generally good relationship with the US and South Korean intelligence agencies, was assassinated by the then head of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency in 1979.

The scandal of the Intelligence Service’s effective rigging of the 2012 election through cyber warfare will certainly galvanise increasingly anti-American sentiments in South Korea as it is widely and generally correctly assumed that the South Korean Intelligence Service still works hand in hand with Washington’s CIA.

According to the NIS report,

“The teams were charged with spreading pro-government opinions and suppressing anti-government views, branding them as attempts by pro-North Korean forces to disrupt state affairs,

Our psychological warfare against North Korea is important, but our psychological warfare against the South Korean public is pretty important, too”.

The Moon administration has condemned the NIS for the report saying that it is a sign of further political meddling which serves to undermine the government’s independent investigation of the fraudulent 2012 election as well as other nefarious activities of the NIS.

This report confirms what I wrote in The Duran prior to the 9 May 2017 South Korean Presidential election. I stated that the United States in tandem with South Korea’s NIS is keen on limiting South Korea’s sovereignty while using North Korea as an excuse.

I wrote at the time,

“With North Korea and the United States trading rhetorical jabs like geo-political boxers, few people have considered how recent events in South Korea may have effected the American decision to intensify the situation in North Korea.

 This year, on the 10th of March, South Korean President Park Geun-hye was removed from office. She was later arrested and is currently still behind bars.

President Park was deeply pro-American and considered to be on the militant end of the spectrum of South Korean politics.

Although Park’s removal from office stemmed from wide ranging allegations of corruption, many South Koreans who favour a political and demilitarised approach to solving the Korean peninsula’s protected problems, breathed a collective sigh of relief.

 There is a clear relationship between American rhetoric and military manoeuvrings becoming intensified and Park being removed from office and put under arrest.  Whether this relationship is causal or coincidental is best determined by analysing who might benefit from accelerating tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn has ruled himself  out from running in the next Presidential election which will take place on the 9th of May.

Among the current contenders, recent opinion polls have shown that Moon Jae-in is leading the race.

Moon’s policies are generally to the left of former President Park and many have speculated that he could seriously challenge American military dominance of South Korean foreign policy.

If a large war broke out in the Korean peninsula prior to the 9th of May, it would likely result in the postponing of the election, an election where two candidates whose foreign policy stance is far to the left of the outgoing administration, will likely finish on top.

It is no secret that many members of the US intelligence community and military community would prefer a more right-wing, military orientated leader in Seoul.

Could it therefore be that the US deep state has decided that in persuading Trump to get more bellicose about North Korea, that Trump could see his approval ratings go up and that simultaneously the US could retard South Korea’s political march to the more peace orientated left?

Stranger things and indeed more wicked things have happened. This is certainly a possibility”.

The new admission from the NIS is proof positive that what was written as a theory has been fully vindicated by fact. It should not come as a surprise as the United States continues to treat South Korea as a kind of client state in spite of the independence minded attitude of the Korean people. By contrast, China most certainly does not have this kind of close relationship with the deep state of North Korea.

From installing puppet dictators like President Park Chung-hee, to the close relationship between South Korea’s intelligence agency and the US CIA, to the forced installation of US THAAD missile in South Korea in spite of mass protests,  South Korea is not as independent from Washington as many would like to believe.

Furthermore, one of the more unusual ways in which the US has exerted power over South Korea was by importing the practice of medical circumcision to Korea after the Korean War. While both ritual circumcision as well as Anglophone medical circumcision was unknown in Korea prior to the presence of US troops, it is now almost universally practised among South Korean men. This serves as a weapon psychological warfare to try and draw an artificial distinction between South and North Koreans in order to create a mindset of two Korean peoples when in fact all Koreans are of the same ethnic, linguistic and cultural background. The current division is entirely political, but among Korean males, the US has attempted to make it physical.

Furthermore, the practice helps easily identify a would be spy or double agent based on an irreversible and easily observed physical characteristic.

Finally, in the event of gruesome combat, the practice would help identify the bodies of the victims in the event of severe facial disfigurement.

The United States is doing to South Korea what it falsely accuses China of doing to and with North Korea. China has little control over Pyongyang but the US, much to the anger of South Koreans, still has a great deal of power and influence over Seoul.

Nigel Farage To Back Another “Vote Leave” Campaign If UK Holds Second Brexit Referendum

Nigel Farage said Friday that he would be willing to wage another “Vote Leave” campaign, even if he needed to use another party as the “vehicle” for his opposition.

Pro-European MPs from various political parties are pushing back against claims made by Prime Minister Theresa May’s government that a second Brexit referendum – which supporters have branded as a “People’s Vote” on May’s deal – would take roughly 14 months to organize, according to RT.

But while support for a second vote grows, one of the most notorious proponents of the original “Vote Leave” campaign is hinting at a possible return to politics to try and fight the effort.

After abandoning UKIP, the party he helped create, late last year, Nigel Farage said Friday that he would be willing to wage another “Vote Leave” campaign, even if he needed to use another party as the “vehicle” for his opposition. Farage also pointed out that a delay of Brexit Day would likely put it after the European Parliament elections in May.

“I think, I fear that the House of Commons is going to effectively overturn that Brexit. To me, the most likely outcome of all of this is an extension of Article 50. There could be another referendum,” he told Sky News.

According to official government guidance shown to lawmakers on Wednesday, which was subsequently leaked to the Telegraph, as May tries to head off a push by ministers who see a second referendum as the best viable alternative to May’s deal – a position that’s becoming increasingly popular with Labour Party MPs.

“In order to inform the discussions, a very short paper set out in factual detail the number of months that would be required, this was illustrative only and our position of course is that there will be no second referendum,,” May said. The statement comes as May has been meeting with ministers and leaders from all parties to try to find a consensus deal that could potentially pass in the House of Commons.

The 14 month estimate is how long May and her government expect it would take to pass the primary legislation calling for the referendum (seven months), conduct the question testing with the election committee (12 weeks), pass secondary legislation (six weeks) and conduct the campaigns (16 weeks).

May has repeatedly insisted that a second referendum wouldn’t be feasible because it would require a lengthy delay of Brexit Day, and because it would set a dangerous precedent that wouldn’t offer any more clarity (if some MPs are unhappy with the outcome, couldn’t they just push for a third referendum?). A spokesperson for No. 10 Downing Street said the guidance was produced purely for the purpose of “illustrative discussion” and that the government continued to oppose another vote.

Meanwhile, a vote on May’s “Plan B”, expected to include a few minor alterations from the deal’s previous iteration, has been called for Jan. 29, prompting some MPs to accuse May of trying to run out the clock. May is expected to present the new deal on Monday.

Former Tory Attorney General and pro-remainer MP Dominic Grieve blasted May’s timetable as wrong and said that the government “must be aware of it themselves,” while former Justice Minister Dr Phillip Lee, who resigned his cabinet seat in June over May’s Brexit policy, denounced her warning as “nonsense.”

As May pieces together her revised deal, more MPs are urging her to drop her infamous “red lines” (Labour in particular would like to see the UK remain part of the Customs Union), but with no clear alternative to May’s plan emerging, a delay of Brexit Day is looking like a virtual certainty.

The National Security Agency Is A Criminal Organization

The National Security Agency values being able to blackmail citizens and members of government at home and abroad more than preventing terrorist attacks.

Paul Craig Roberts

Via Paul Craig Roberts…


Years before Edward Snowden provided documented proof that the National Security Agency was really a national insecurity agency as it was violating law and the US Constitution and spying indiscriminately on American citizens, William Binney, who designed and developed the NSA spy program revealed the illegal and unconstitutional spying. Binney turned whistleblower, because NSA was using the program to spy on Americans. As Binney was well known to the US Congress, he did not think he needed any NSA document to make his case. But what he found out was “Congress would never hear me because then they’d lose plausible deniability. That was really their key. They needed to have plausible deniability so they can continue this massive spying program because it gave them power over everybody in the world. Even the members of Congress had power against others [in Congress]; they had power on judges on the Supreme Court, the federal judges, all of them. That’s why they’re so afraid. Everybody’s afraid because all this data that’s about them, the central agencies — the intelligence agencies — they have it. And that’s why Senator Schumer warned President Trump earlier, a few months ago, that he shouldn’t attack the intelligence community because they’ve got six ways to Sunday to come at you. That’s because it’s like J. Edgar Hoover on super steroids. . . . it’s leverage against every member of parliament and every government in the world.”

To prevent whistle-blowing, NSA has “a program now called ‘see something, say something’ about your fellow workers. That’s what the Stasi did. That’s why I call [NSA] the new New Stasi Agency. They’re picking up all the techniques from the Stasi and the KGB and the Gestapo and the SS. They just aren’t getting violent yet that we know of — internally in the US, outside is another story.”

As Binney had no documents to give to the media, blowing the whistle had no consequence for NSA. This is the reason that Snowden released the documents that proved NSA to be violating both law and the Constitution, but the corrupt US media focused blame on Snowden as a “traitor” and not on NSA for its violations.

Whistleblowers are protected by federal law. Regardless, the corrupt US government tried to prosecute Binney for speaking out, but as he had taken no classified document, a case could not be fabricated against him.

Binney blames the NSA’s law-breaking on Dick “Darth” Cheney. He says NSA’s violations of law and Constitution are so extreme that they would have to have been cleared at the top of the government.

Binney describes the spy network, explains that it was supposed to operate only against foreign enemies, and that using it for universal spying so overloads the system with data that the system fails to discover many terrorist activities. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50932.htm

Apparently, the National Security Agency values being able to blackmail citizens and members of government at home and abroad more than preventing terrorist attacks.

Unfortunately for Americans, there are many Americans who blindly trust the government and provide the means, the misuse of which is used to enslave us. A large percentage of the work in science and technology serves not to free people but to enslave them. By now there is no excuse for scientists and engineers not to know this. Yet they persist in their construction of the means to destroy liberty.

US Christians move to protect Christians in the Middle East

It is very good to stand up for Christians in places where they are persecuted in the world. We ought to start with the US and Europe.

Seraphim Hanisch

ISIS represents the single most prominent national or pseudo national entity that makes the persecution of Christians a central part of its activity. The would-be Islamic Caliphate is widely understood to be on its last legs, having been destroyed or driven out of most of the Syrian territory and Iraq, which it had gained in surprisingly swift conquests during the administration of US President Barack Obama. However, ISIS is not the only persecutor of followers of Jesus Christ. In fact, Christianity is by far the most widely persecuted religion on earth, with the last 100 years seeing more martyrdoms than in the entire history of Christianity before.

In this video, released by Fox Entertainment, Dede Laugesen discusses the activity of Christians in the US moving to help those abroad. The video is well worth watching, but with additional considerations.

Persecution of Christians has many forces, and although this piece largely concerns itself with causing the physical death of Christian believers, it also makes a point of “exclusion from civil society, loss of property, and many other things.”

This may or may not be code for the other type of persecution that has taken place against Christians, that being in what we might call “First World” countries, like the United States itself, England and others in Europe.

During President Obama’s terms, for example, Christians were actively persecuted through the Affordable Care Act’s provisions of (at first) trying to get one dollar of  everyone’s health insurance policy premiums to go towards providing abortifacients or contraceptives to anyone who needed them. This was a violation of American First Amendment rights (Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…) and the Roman Catholic Conference of Bishops in the US spoke out against it strongly. The answer from the Administration was basically a shell game – insurance companies were thus mandated to provide such services for no charge at all.

Of course, the insurance companies are not about to lose money, so the original idea of a dollar per premium payment essentially survived; it was just slightly more hidden.

In 2015 and 2016, American Christians began to notice in very widespread fashion that they and those believing in a traditional understanding of family life and marriage, were now considered “hateful, bigoted, homophobic” and other pejorative labels. Some were driven out of business, like the cake backers in Oregon and Colorado. Homosexuality, a lifestyle that has been condemned by all Abrahamic faith traditions since recorded history began, was made legal by Supreme Court fiat in the United States. Now parents have to deal with the reality of lesbian or gay hero characters being portrayed by the likes of Marvel and DC productions on TV at home, and some public schools are insistent upon teaching children about “my two dads” or “my two moms” and so forth.

As Tucker Carlson noted in his own video presentation about two weeks ago, the attack against traditional family values for the sake of economic gain has caused unbelievable destruction in American society. The legalization of cannabis has accelerated this.

With all this is probably the most powerful attack yet devised against Christian believers. That attack says something like this:

Christianity? Sure, it’s okay if you want to be Christian. We do not mind. But keep your faith in Church. Be nice to the rest of us who do not believe like you do. Your faith is yours to keep but it offends us. Jesus said to love everyone, but when you talk about your beliefs (that we disagree with) you are being a bad Christian because you are being hateful to people who are different than you.

Many Christians have silently buckled to this argument. And why?

It is in our nature as Christians to strive for compassion and kindness to others. In America, a large part of our church upbringing talked about being nice to others whether they deserved it or not.

But being “nice” is not the same as being honest. There are still a lot of great parents that know that being too nice to their children will kill them. Being honest, strong, disciplined… these are also measures of what Christian love is.

Christian love is rooted in reality. The reality of God, of who we are, our ability to do either good or evil to ourselves and those around us, and far more than being nice to others, facing the Lord at the last moment in life or at the Last Judgement. To survive and make it through that session means that we have to make decisions that may not look nice. They may look harsh, unkind, or hateful. But every sane adult probably remembers times his or her parents put their foot down and did not let them do something. At the time it seemed wrong. But later it proved lifesaving.

We are under an attack as severe as ISIS’ attacks on Christians in those other parts of the world. If the seculars of our culture can render our faith as irrelevant, then they have won, and we all suffer.
