    … 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.

    … 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).

    … 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.

    to commit acts of terror, but before they can charge them for it, they have to give them money for supplies and then teach them how to build their bombs and then charge them under the Trading With the Enemy Act.
    Don't forget Bill Clinton's other friend Marc Rich who he pardoned at the last minute.

    If you repeat a questionable story often enough people will accept it as fact.

    from the same article, there are gems like this one

    Robert L. Roach, Counsel to the Senate investigation, outlined during the hearing the services that Citibank had provided to Raul Salinas, brother to then President of Mexico, Carlos Salinas, as follows:

    “The private bank…established a shell company for Mr. Salinas with layers of disguised ownership. It permitted a third party using an alias to deposit funds into the accounts, and it moved the funds out of Mexico through a Citibank concentration account that aided in the obfuscation of the audit trail. Cititrust in the Cayman Islands activated a Cayman Island shell corporation called a PIC, or private investment corporation, called Trocca, Ltd., to serve as the owner of record for the Salinas private bank accounts…

    There are many more people who got great deals with laundering money through Citibank. And those pin heads won't modify my mortgage? I guess it's possible that if I was trying to launder money from my home then I might have better luck?

    It sure seems that every day we are learning more about how corrupt our government is and how they let the big crooks get away with crimes that if we little people try to do, we end up in prison for decades if not life.
    How many people are in prison for smoking marijuana while it's been legalized in some states?
    John Edward's two Americas is still in effect.

    the saudi rulers' need to pacify their citizens and divert the young away from challenging their regime has certainly exported an awful lot of trouble around the world.

    @joe shikspack

    In addition, always anxious to direct the anger of Saudi citizens outward, Saudi rulers continued to encourage their own young men to wage jihad overseas. In the 1980s, the plight of oppressed Muslims from Palestine and Lebanon to Bosnia and Chechnya was broadcast on state television and taught in mosques as a way of whipping up feverish support for fighting abroad. A survey of Saudi men who volunteered to fight in Afghanistan, Bosnia, or Chechnya, or to train in Al Qaeda camps found that most were motivated by the desire to help their suffering Muslim brothers and sisters.
    Saudi officials, religious groups, charities, and private individuals became prolific sponsors of international terrorist groups as disparate as the Taliban, Al Qaeda, the Pakistani Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT), and the Al-Nusra Front in Syria. In 2008, a U.S. Treasury official testified in a congressional hearing that Saudi Arabia was the location from which more money was going to Sunni terror groups than any other place in the world.
    A Wikileaks-revealed 2009 cable quotes then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as saying: “Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide … More needs to be done since Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Tayyiba and other terrorist groups.” Three other Arab countries listed as sources of militant money were Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates, all neighbors of Saudi Arabia and members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

    @Ellen North and still survive. That will spin out of control soon enough. The trouble is that there is a Deep State cabal around that tries to pitch the idea of limited or winnable nuclear wars. They have undying faith in their counter-measures, but not for any good reason apparently.

    Nuclear war contains multiple redundancies, and there are never any winners.

    @Pricknick I think reading about what millions of people are talking about is really cool. I am glad people here on this site bring it to my attention, since I am media-deficient.
    It is up to me if I think it has merit.
    And up to you, as well.
    It is not a reflection on this site. It would die away with no comments if nobody gave a shit.
    On the Seth Rich murder and Kim Dot.com stories, lots of us are hungry to read and digest the information and I am so glad to have that info here.

    It should be, that is, unless you live under the thumb of a giant municipal bureaucracy that wants to be paid its salary(ies)...and... charges separate fees for any service actually rendered. Here it's upwards of $700, plus $25 for each certified copy of the judgement(s).

    I have an eight page booklet describing the steps, and there are many, to complete name change and gender change. Needless to say, the necessary funds are daunting.

    @Ellen North For the record, the particular corporate media mouth who made that statement was Chris Cuomo.

    first segment from yesterday's Democracy Now! I hope everyone watches it. Medea's been all over the place of late. I just got a copy of her book, guess I'll give it a read. Here she is with Thom Hartmann on RT:

    given the recent watergate theme, i would guess that trump will blame the plumbers. Smile

    @Not Henry Kissinger

    Plus Marc Elias has 20.2k followers on twitter
    Bruce Spiva has 32 followers on twitter

    This probably explains the stupid, offensive, incoherent reasons Spiva gave during the motion to dismiss hearing.

    It also gives PC a certain degree of plausible deniability. Other threads have pointed out that it didn't seem likely Spiva would not be prepared for the judge's question about the relationship between the DNC and the state Dem parties. Yet given Spiva's lack of day to day familiarity with the ins and outs of that relationship (which Elias created), it could very well be that they have kept him at least somewhat in the dark and that Spiva doesn't truly know all the shady details.

    Ignorance of the facts of the matter is not a viable excuse for attorney at bar. It redounds on his ignorance and ill-preparedness.

    in the age of trump, the media is pandering to those whose only thought about muslims is that they are bad.

    parry has been doing great work lately, being a rare voice of reason in the media.

    i can't imagine that trump would be any more likely to crack down on wall street banksters than obama was. obama owed wall street deeply for arranging his election to the presidency, but trump owes wall street for the financing that has allowed him to have wealth and notoriety.

    it looks like buzzfeed is compounding their irresponsibility by playing a bunch of irritating, nuisance lawyer tricks, trying to change venues to inconvenience the plaintiff.

    i hope that the court sticks it to buzzfeed for their actions.

    there's a need to form that 3rd party and otherwise vote only for known progressives (who can later cross to that 3rd party of the people,) to also support the attempted take-over of the corrupt Dems where nothing better offers and refuse to support corporate representatives of either of the evils literally killing us all.

    Although they are Democrats, at least for the time being, I would gladly vote for Tulsi and/or Nina.
