Well What a Surprise

BREAKING: America First Media Names Public Officials at Hospital the Morning of Seth Rich Shooting

America First Media has brought forth new findings in their investigation into the 2016 homicide of DNC employee Seth Rich. An inside source with knowledge of what occurred at the hospital on the early morning of July 10, 2016 has revealed former DNC Chairperson Donna Brazile and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser arrived shortly after EMTs had delivered the injured victim for emergency treatment of two gunshot wounds to the torso.

Rich, age 27 at the time, was expected to survive his injuries but unfortunately died during surgery much to the surprise of the EMTs who had claimed he was conscious but confused at the scene of the shooting.

With little to no information released publicly about the homicide by DC Metropolitan Police, America First Media investigators had confirmed last year the hospital was, in fact, MedStar Hospital, and the surgeon, who had commenced operating and ultimately pronounced Seth Rich deceased at 5:57am, as being Dr. Christine Trankiem.

Why were two high profile political figures at the hospital in the early morning hours? Who advised them of the shooting so soon after it occurred? Was Seth Rich more than the mid-level employee he had been made out to be by the media and the DNC?

Donna dedicated her book to Seth and said this in an interview:

Brazile talked about Rich on ABC News’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. She told the host about her critics: “They don’t know what it was like to be over the DNC during this hacking. They don’t know what it’s like to bury a child. I did: Seth Rich.”

Here are a few interesting articles on Seth Rich and people who are trying to find the truth about his death.

Feds say 'no' to request for Seth Rich records

Why won’t Seth Rich’s brother authorize Wikileaks to tell what it knows?

‘Too Big to Fail’: Russia-gate One Year After VIPS Showed a Leak, Not a Hack

A Spy Coup in America?

Hopefully the truth about Seth's death and his role in the DNC computer files will one day be known. If he was the one who gave Wikileaks the DNC computer files then that will be the end of Russia Gate since the whole thing relied on the original claim that Russia hacked the DNC computers. Hillary and Podesta blamed Russia for hacking the computers to keep people from focusing on the content of the files. It worked. Did the media spend any time discussing them?

Interesting article.

Seth was likely a Brennan hit, too, that was finished in the hospital.

I can't understand how and why "they" are letting this information out and keep waiting for the hammer to fall. It's been a couple months now and I'm still able to access some damaging material.

And that meme of Seth Rich is just fucking heartbreaking.

"Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich."--Napoleon

@dkmich

A conspiracy is a "bad thing" planned by two or more people. Don't most bad things require the cooperation and/or silence of two or more people? So why does the very use of the term "conspiracy theory" invite scoffing at the theory in question?

"Conspiracy theory" was used occasionally before the assassination of JFK, but did not become a persistent term of ridicule connoting insanity until then. Some call it a "weaponized" term because simply using the term strongly implies that sane folk should ignore the theory, which must mean the theorist is a loon.

Federal criminal statutes, written by allegedly intelligent lawmakers, certainly recognize that conspiracies exist. Why shouldn't we?

(This post is not about the death of either JFK or of Seth Rich, but is a general comment--perhaps a linguistic "conspiracy theory" of my own.

...not long after the Warren Commission investigated the assassination of JFK.

http://www.jfklancer.com/CIA.html

and

This pathbreaking analysis by Professor James Tracy shows how the term “conspiracy theory” is being used to label critical analysis and dissenting viewpoints.

“Conspiracy theory” is a term that at once strikes fear and anxiety in the hearts of most every public figure, particularly journalists and academics. Since the 1960s the label has become a disciplinary device that has been overwhelmingly effective in defining certain events off limits to inquiry or debate. Especially in the United States raising legitimate questions about dubious official narratives destined to inform public opinion (and thereby public policy) is a major thought crime that must be cauterized from the public psyche at all costs.

Conspiracy theory’s acutely negative connotations may be traced to liberal historian Richard Hofstadter’s well-known fusillades against the “New Right.” Yet it was the Central Intelligence Agency that likely played the greatest role in effectively “weaponizing” the term. In the groundswell of public skepticism toward the Warren Commission’s findings on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the CIA sent a detailed directive to all of its bureaus. Titled “Countering Criticism of the Warren Commission Report,” the dispatch played a definitive role in making the “conspiracy theory” term a weapon to be wielded against almost any individual or group calling the government’s increasingly clandestine programs and activities into question.

The use of theories is how difficult crimes are solved.

We need more conspiracy theories (critical thinking) not fewer. And the entire American public needs to collaborate on these, finding the connections, rejecting the dead ends, satisfying the logic until we get to the bottom of what is actually going on. Working together from a board of evidence. Growing a successful civilization using intelligence..

Had lying Donna been hoisted to head the DNC at the time of Seth's murder? If so, that makes it even more suspicious that Ms. Pick Up Da Phone showed up.

If I ended up in the hospital in the middle of the night, my coworkers -- though I seriously love a couple of them -- would NOT be joining me at the hospital. They wouldn't even know about it until the next day when I didn't show up for work. Family, yes. Coworkers and the flipping mayor? Bwahahaha! NO!

@Dr. John Carpenter But I can tell you that I showed up at the airport (with a throng of other supporters) to welcome Bernie home on June 8, 2016 ...the day after the California "primary" that the AP called before it even happened and where they canceled the exit polls. Anyway, up until then, Bernie had publicly been promising to take his fight "all the way to Philly."

When I had the opportunity to shake his hand that afternoon and say, "All the way to Philly, Bernie!", he immediately looked away and didn't respond. I knew right then something was off. His demeanor was in stark contrast to what it had been. And immediately thereafter, he commenced the "Vote for Her" and Russiagate bullshit that I just can't support.

Again, I don't have the answer. Just an anecdote.

@Dr. John Carpenter

that Bernie's actions were due to 'threats.' Let's remember, he didn't just drop out of the sky into the DC Cesspool right before the 2016 Presidential election--he's been serving at the Federal level since 1990.

Bear in mind, he periodically meets with 'O' at portentous points in time. And, he's currently part of the Dem Party Leadership--serving as the Chair of Outreach for the Senate since November 2016.

Remember, he met with 'O' right before the Iowa Primary. Then, more recently (March 2018), he met with 'O' to discuss "the future of the party and their different roles in it. They talked about what the party should be focused on, and what would be distractions. Obama discussed his views on the differences between idealism and practicality, and Sanders responded with his."

Bernie also met with 'O' right before 'O' publicly threw his support behind FSC as the Dem Party nominee.

IMO, it defies logic, that after 28 years he's still clueless as to how the Dem Party Machine/DC works. I just don't buy it. Sorry.

(Which is not to say that I believe that he has 'evil' intent. As I see it, he still believes in/adheres to the ol' LOTE philosophy.)

That voyage took courage. There were hard times, but they put down roots and settled in. Were their sacrifices worth it?

There are definitely those who lie brazenly (Brazile-ly?), are known to be lying, but get away with it anyway. Often times, in these situations, the truth would have served the liar better, but the lying liar chose to lie anyway.

Some of them will forever escape consequences of any kind, even in the court of public opinion, because the truth never found them out and never will. And "Be sure the truth will find you out" is but one example of things we were brainwashed to believe and expect, even though they had nothing to do with reality and/or with how the world actually works.

Here's Assange speaking about the risks his sources take to get them information. He brought up Seth's name without prompting and remember that Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information about Seth's murder. I don't think Wikileaks is in a habit of doing that.

Christine Assange's supposed admission caused many on Twitter to note that her son, Julian Assange, "heavily implied" that Rich was a Wikileaks source in an August, 2016 interview on Dutch television when he brought up Assange in the context of WikiLeaks whistleblowers, and then nodded his head when asked directly if Rich was a source.

Mrs. Assange has been busy lately with her tweeting. This site has posted Ray's article a few times.

The Twitterverse has loads of information about Seth, Mrs. Assange and VIPS.

Anyone have any updated information about Assange being kicked out of the embassy? Seems that this subject has been very quiet lately.

A republican congress member spoke with Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy and then supposedly he told Trump about it. Trump loved Wikileaks during the primary. He owes his presidency to them in my opinion. The Wikileaks posts are what made so many Bernie supporters not vote for Her. The least Trump can do is stop pressuring Ecuador and tell people in his administration to back off.
