Professors rally behind MIT Media Lab director after Epstein funding scandal
‘The conversation has veered into increasingly pessimistic territory,’ a new petition says
By Mary Beth Griggs | Aug 27, 2019

A group of prominent academics have signed a letter in support of MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito, as MIT reckons with the revelation that it accepted around $800,000 in funds from convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The letter seeks to gather support for Ito, who has apologized for accepting funds from the now-deceased financier.

Epstein had a reputation for cultivating relationships with scientists, and funded many scientific projects, including some at MIT. He was also linked to deceased MIT professor and AI pioneer Marvin Minsky, who was recently accused of having sex with one of Epstein’s underaged victims. Epstein also gave money to the Media Lab, among other institutions.

In the wake of the new charges, Epstein’s support has become a source of public shame for the Media Lab. Ito published a public apology on August 15 acknowledging that the MIT Media Lab received money from Epstein’s foundations. “I knew about these gifts and these funds were received with my permission” Ito wrote, adding, “I also allowed him to invest in several of my funds which invest in tech startup companies outside of MIT.”

In the apology he vowed to “raise an amount equivalent to the donations the Media Lab received from Epstein” and send that to non-profits focused on supporting survivors of trafficking. He also promised to return the money that Epstein had invested in his funds.

But the revelation had already created significant discord within the Media Lab. On August 10th, Ethan Zuckerman, the director of the Center for Civic Media at the Media Lab resigned. In a Medium post published later, Zuckerman cited Ito’s acceptance of funds from Epstein as the reason he was resigning.

“The work my group does focuses on social justice and on the inclusion of marginalized individuals and points of view. It’s hard to do that work with a straight face in a place that violated its own values so clearly in working with Epstein and in disguising that relationship.” Zuckerman wrote.

The Epstein-Funded Child Porn Hub MIT Media Lab That Murdered Aaron Swartz
By Yoichi Shimatsu | August 28, 2019

After probing his deep-state background and Illuminati connections, I was hoping to be rid of the Jeffrey Epstein file but here we are spinning another round in this Part IV of a saga of sexual perversion and financial crime that refuses to go away. It’s a cold day in hell for me to find any agreement with The Daily Beast, which means the Netherworld must now be sufficiently frozen to toss a few snowballs at child-porn producer Nicholas Negroponte and his acolyte Joi Ito. As founder of the MIT Media Lab and his pedophilia sex-fiend buddies with American diplomats and major corporations, including Boeing, all in with the George W. Bush team, Negroponte was involved in systematic rape and video production of kiddie porn at a Phnom Penh orphanage, that was busted by “the Father’s group” of anti-pedophile activists, which included Wayne Madsen, the late Gerald Thorns and me. Those tiny victims, mostly boys ranged from six to 14 years of age, along with a few subteen girls for some hetero action, until their expulsion on orders of Queen Monica of Cambodia. These crimes of underage porn produced at the MIT Media Lab later culminated in that coven’s role in the murder of reddit editor and anti-pedophile activist Aaron Swartz in January 2013.

To give credit where’s it’s due, the Beast exposed Epstein’s secretive funneling of investment funds through Nick Negroponte’s MIT Media Lab as a conduit to tech “start-ups” involved in next-gen sexual perversion to amuse the mind-raped heirs of elite families when they get a bit older with their own bio-synthesized AI-capable sex androids, presumably modeled after young kids from your neighborhood.

Jeffrey Epstein, who had a personal preference for teenage girls, was their angel investor, providing an estimated one million dollars or more to the Lab’s bag-man Joichi “Joi” Ito, whose background check discloses zero academic or engineering qualifications for being in charge of anything except the janitorial service at MIT, indicative again of the intellectual level of the baboons with the Bush crime mob and their queer pals in the Obama regime, who managed to subvert academia.

Further on, this essay will examine the occult Shabbatean roots of the Greek Jewish Negroponte family from Calchika, the Venetian fortress of Negroponte on the Aegean island of Euboea (Evvia) where their pimping Khazarian Jew ancestors flourished in the service of the Doge of Venice and the Ottoman court, as continued into our present era in Ambassador John Negroponte’s relishing of the perverse sadistic torture at Abu Graibh Prison in military-occupied Iraq. The elite’s sex crimes against defenseless children are legacy operations of cults that operate in secret like vampire covens in Eastern Europe and Turkey as depicted in the “Underworld” series and the Dracula movies. Nick and John, you diabolical scum, walk quickly on dark nights though you’ve tired with age, because it’s never too late for the ghosts of your victims to insert and squeeze the castration tongs when you least expect it.

Ventriloquist’s puppet

The stand-in for Nick Negroponte as current lab director, Joi Ito, has just apologized for his secret meetings inside Epstein’s posh homes to collect “gifts and funds” to MIT along with an undisclosed amount for Ito’s private investment company. Under pressure of media coverage, MIT disclosed that Jeffrey Epstein donated $800,000 to Joi Ito and Seth Lloyd, the latter involved in quantum computing theory, without providing further details as to the specifics of project allocation. Ito claimed the MIT Media Lab received $200,000 of that sum and admitted that Epstein also channeled an undisclosed amount into one of Ito’s private investment fund. This funneling of large sums of money, of unknown origin (when Epstein’s prime business client Les Wexner is now complaining about grand larceny due to misappropriation from his fortune) is a financial crime implicating Ito and possibly other individuals with the governing board at the Media Lab and MIT administration. To assume Negroponte had no insider knowledge is absurd considering his crime biography.

Instead of launching a credible investigation into the MIT-Epstein nexus, the university administration has quietly encouraged a “non-official” petition by Media Lab faculty, fellows, staffers and students in support of bag-man Ito to retain his position as crook-in-chief, even though he has, this late in the game, failed to disclose any specifics about the amounts, recipient research projects and individuals involved, and the purposes of Epstein’s funding. Due discipline at major universities, including MIT, requires legal contracts for major donations, which Ito and his board have failed to produce for public inspection. His admission of a secret financial relationship with Epstein came long after the media expose of the donor’s sexual misconduct with underage girls.

The complicity of DARPA and the National Science Foundation in this campaign of misdirection under a blanket cover-up is yet to be exposed. This level of financial fraud demands FBI action and Massachusetts state attorney general’s probe into the MIT Media Lab, including its role in the Cambodian pedophile-child porn project and the murder of Aaron Swartz. The nexus of evil must be dismantled in a court of law and the culprits assigned long prison terms. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos needs to step into this quagmire, which threatens to suck down MIT and Harvard into a swamp of distrust.

Minority Report

Contrary to the ethically stunted majority of MIT Media labbers, two of its professionals resigned in protest of the hidden relationship between Ito and Epstein, and undoubted its shadow director Negroponte. As reported in CBS News: “Ethan Zuckerman, director of the lab’s Center for Civic Media, said that director Joi Ito had failed to disclose the deceased financier’s funding of the MIT incubator as well as investments Epstein made in Ito’s personal venture capital fund.

“Visiting scholar Nathan Matias, who works on the social impact of online platforms, said in a blog post that he, too, was severing ties with the Media Lab over business relations that occurred after Epstein’s ‘appalling crimes were already known.’” Well done, gentlemen, for setting an ethical example.

Two honest individuals versus 100 ethically impaired careerists who signed the support letter, plus several cowards who remain anonymous, in favor of Ito’s continuing as director. This is a scandal of academic complicity in criminal activities and ethical lapses at one of the nation’s most respected institutions of higher learning, setting a disgraceful example for America’s system of higher education. That said, who and what is Joi Ito?

Houseboy in Charge

Due to the moral influence of my father from a samurai clan who went off to war in the U.S. Army’s 442nd Regiment against the Nazi-led forces in Europe (yes, there is such a thing as real men among wimpy Asian Americans), I get uncomfortable whenever having to discuss our subservient immigrant phenomena of “houseboys” like actor James Shigeta, Lt. Sulu aka George Takei and this creepy Joichi Ito, and various mango smoothies named Cary or Grant. Orientalism, with its sexual exoticism, is a powerful undercurrent in Western societies that have neocolonial commercial interests in Asia, with Ito’s suspect role as a purveyor to pedophiles of Japanese child porn being a case in point.

Joichi Ito’s academic biography is noteworthy for its lack of mention of graduation from any university, not even with a bachelor’s degree, having been a dropout from Tufts and the University of Chicago. One of his disappointed teachers said that Joi believed himself to be too “creative” but actually was too lazy and undisciplined to attend class. His curriculum vita is otherwise packed with honorary mentions and highfalutin titles, obviously exchanged for generous donations by this fraudster. Institutional bribery bought his ticket to ride.

PSY op Tokyo

His “big start” in tech came with development of the PSY network in Tokyo, thanks to a little help from Cable and Wireless PLC, a private-sector telecom that fronted for the British CGHQ spy agency (equivalent to the NSA) operating out of Hong Kong and Australia. The Brit intel connection also links the Negroponte brothers to UK Princes Charles and Philip, those descendants of the King of Greece, a Brit-installed puppet during the Greek independence struggle against the Ottoman Turks in which Lord Byron figured so publicly. Is the MIT Media Lab actually a British intelligence outpost in the Ivy League? What else can explain Joi Ito’ mercurial rise based on nothing but hot air?

Anyway in the early 1990s, Japan’s early Internet system was being developed by a coalition of computer departments at leading universities, which called itself TWICS. In that early phase, my Japan Times Weekly webpage was the runaway leading website in Japan, but was forced to shut down under the threat of an advertising boycott made against the parent newspaper by Dentsu, then the world’s largest ad agency, which boldly told our executives about its plan to control the top 5 websites in Japan for online advertising purposes. My replacement website was titled “Archipelago”, a description for insular Japan borrowed from Alexander Solzenitsyn’s novel “The Gulag Archipelago“. At that moment, Joichi Ito was a bit player, virtually unknown who made his first fortune quietly from the British imperial spy apparatus.

The GCHQ, for those who have not kept up with the Brit spooks, has more recently been directly implicated in the Russiagate scandal against Donald Trump, the rise of Huawei out of colonial-era Hong Kong, and John Podesta’s excursion to New Zealand for the false-flag staged at ISIS mosques in Christchurch, plus a player in Ghislaine Maxwell’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, and the hidden hand behind the Negroponte neocon brothers and the MIT Media Lab. Therefore, this logical thread suggests that the British top queers aka the Rothschild-Goldsmith cabal were ultimately behind the murder of Aaron Swartz and before that the arson that killed banker Edmond Safra, patron of the Aleppo biblical and Torah scholars opposed to the Illuminati State of Israel. The Illuminati fingerprints are all over the Epstein-Wexner-Maxwell affair.

Absurdity always accompanies evil, that is provided by Joi’s sister Mimi, a cultural anthropologist at UC Irvine who “studies” geek “culture”, for instance, computer gaming without her having any clue of how cheats and points are traded for money by these ethically stunted young criminals spending all their hours in game parlors (to avoided being tracked down by cybersleuths). Then again, she’s probably spent a lot of geeky hours in the dark web trolling for virtual goods to sell to sexually bent gamers. It’s hard to believe that top universities are permitting pseudo-academic “researchers”, but then again whenever I meet intellectually devoid professors I start to believe in the improbable.

Brit Fags

Now what does British-Australian intelligence have to do with child porn during Joi Ito’s early Internet days in Tokyo? I can recall one of my sub-editors who was married to staffer at the Australian Embassy expressing her dismay at embassy cocktail parties, where the male staffers (to the disgust of their wives) boasting about their outrageous sexual exploits against little brown boys and girls, in a game of one-upsmanship between cringeworthy pedophiles. That was in the same time frame that several European diplomats were arrested at their home-country airports for possession of child porn. One Spanish offender, who was second secretary at the Tokyo embassy, was caught bringing in a couple of suitcases full of Japanese child-sex videos, which included Caucasian men raping sub-teens and even infants.

The Japanese yakuza-owned studios were the world’s leading producer of child rape and S&M videos, available in uncensored format only for export. The underground trade and file-sharing over the Internet at his PSY operation (TWICS would have detected massive online porn) should explain how Joi Ito endeared himself to the high-end pedophile studio known as the MIT Media Lab. In that early era of the Internet, videos were too large for file-transfer and so shipments by TNT overnight air-express (the American founder of TNT was a serial rapist of underage Filipina girls). Ah, yes, those golden days of underage rape across Asia from Japan to Thailand.

Pressure from the Interpol forced the Japanese pedophile video industry to go underground. Many outsiders have wondered what accounts for the grotesque genres of Japan’s porn industry including elaborate knot-tying bondage, dripping candle infliction of pain, student gang-rape of teachers, 100-to-1 ratios of men to lone woman in the semen coverage rituals called bukkake, scatalogical poop fests, golden showers, female ejaculation, “new-half” trannydom and other demented rites with a rear-religious quality akin to Satanism? Partly because of racism payback whenever the more bizarre sex acts are staged by the ethnic Korean mafia out to humiliate the Japanese, much like how the Jewish cabaret owners in Weimar Berlin took out their race hatred against German Christians though deviant performances like the dog leash walk, scat-eating coprophilia acts (still enjoyed by Eric Schmidt and his Google technology freaks from Stanford), transvestism, leather and rubber fetishes, lesbian shows, and so on.

Underdogs can be rabid vicious mutts that need to be put down before their affronts to public decency bring on another race war by the majority against the criminalized minority. Koreans like the Jews indulge in complaints against discrimination while failing to address the question of provocation, as seen among many newer minorities in the USA with their Antifa posturing and nudity at gay-lesbian marches. If one was to be accepted, learn to live with others instead of assaulting their sense of decency.

CV of a Faker

Back to the Joi boy, the socially approved innocent who was appointed at Harvard Law as a “professor at Practice” (whatever that means): “Ito is chairman of the board of PureTech Health and serves on several other boards, including The New York Times Company, the MacArthur Foundation and the Knight Foundation. He is also the former chairman and CEO of Creative Commons, and a former board member of ICANN, The Open Source Initiative, and The Mozilla Foundation. Ito is a serial entrepreneur who helped start and run numerous companies including one of the first web companies in Japan, Digital Garage, and the first commercial Internet service provider in Japan, PSINet Japan/IIKK. He has been an early-stage investor in many companies, including Formlabs, Flickr, Kickstarter, littleBits, and Twitter. He has received a lifetime achievement award from Oxford Internet Institute” Impressive for a college dropout.” Blah-blah-blah. Show us the credentials.

Joi Ito is one of those tech con artists, spewing optimistic predictions to gain the naive trust of gullible investors and foundation grant-makers, not an educator or researcher, which is exactly what’s wrong with the over-leveraged, absurdly hyped tech sector and the Ivy League, where inventiveness is mainly focused on ridiculous e-commerce scams, redundant apps and counterfeit digital currencies. The bust of tech shares is looming, promising to wipe-out bigger than the dot.com bust. Sayonara, Elon and Zuck!

Last and least mentionable: “Ito has been awarded honorary doctorates from The New School and Tufts University and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Ito is a visiting professor of practice at the Harvard Law School.” So he failed attend classes in his freshman year at Tufts and now Ito has a doctorate from that same prestigious institution of higher learning. What a disgrace for Tufts! Pull your kids out of that fraudulent diploma mill. Because on Christmas I hope to give the university president a silver beggar’s cup to piss in.

Another point that hasn’t been raised is: Japan does not permit dual citizenship with the USA making his appointment at MIT an even bigger stretch. (Whereas dual citizen status is granted to Japanese descendants born in Peru and Brazil, based on those nations’ fascist alliance with Imperial Japan in the run-up to World War II; meaning the USA is still considered an enemy state.) As a Japanese citizen, Joi Ito cannot hold U.S. citizenship. A non-citizen with no college degree with prestigious Ivy League postings? How is this possible without payoffs? Why not appoint John Gotti’s grandson to the Wharton School?

Another mongrel from the Jewish kennel

Joi Ito’s obscure origins involved a father who immigrated from Kyoto to work as researcher for the Detroit auto industry. Somehow his mother became particularly close to Stanford Ovshinsky, a battery designer and solid-state “inventor” (who never studied electrical engineering), who “treated Joichi Ito almost like a son.” Hmmm. This so reminds me of that other Polish Jew named Bernard Krisher, the Tokyo correspondent for the Moonies’ UPI, who gained notoriety as a pedophile during the Cambodian orphanage affair. Ovshinsky’s father was from Minsk, then Lituania but now Belarus, in that same border regions dominated by the Frankist-Shabbetean sex cult, discussed in my earlier articles on the Epstein-Wexner family origins.

To those familiar with Operation Paperclip-Overcast, Ovshinsky’s “inventions” in solid-state electronics are not impressive works of a creative genius, given the fact that most of those “inventions” were developed in wartime Germany and hijacked (without an iota of concern for copyright). During World War II, Ovshinsky worked at the Goodyear plant in Litchfield, Arizona, where he modified lathes to produce artillery shells, and in the postwar period worked for the defense contractor Hupp Corporation, an assembly plant for Army vehicles. While maintaining the pretense of being an “inventor”, Ovshinsky was one of dozens of contracted managers with the Defense Department procurement program, transferring captured German technology to the private sector. Ovshinsky later established an electronics parts company in Nara, Japan, presumably with Mrs. Ito as his translator and guide-companion.

Therefore with the connections to Operation Paperclip, which morphed into DARPA, Joi Ito grew up as one of the Pentagon brats just like Jeff Bezos, the favorite boy of his maternal grandfather Lawrence Preston Gise, a founder of NASA and DARPA, as disclosed in one of my earlier articles for rense.com. It’s called nepotism, folks, based on “family secrets” reinforced by incest. These hand-me-down “geniuses” are mere managers and secret-protectors, not bright lights. Another one of these Jewish family heirlooms is Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the NASA-awarded “science genius” with a thick Yiddish accent, whose “uncle” with the Kirshenbaum clan at Mount Sinai hospital’s research center facilitated her research on a microscopic worm.

Inside Plato’s Cave

Joi Ito is surrounded by a crew of likewise dodgy characters. The petition is online, but The Daily Beast’s Taylor Hatmaker has done a great job of condensing it: “Some of the prominent signers of the petition to keep Ito include former presidential candidate Lawrence Lessig, Whole Earth Catalog creator and tech icon Stewart Brand, managing partner of MIT Media Lab’s venture fund Habib Haddad, MIT Media Lab founder Nicholas Negroponte, LittleBits founder and CEO Ayah Bdeir, and Harvard genetics professor George Church. Church previously apologized for his own connections to Epstein, chalking the relationship up to ‘nerd tunnel vision.’” Tunnel Vision? There is actually light at the end of a tunnel. These benighted ignoramuses are more like those blind believers inside Plato’s cave.

So now that George Church is outed as an Epstein researcher, we’re right back to “transhumanism”, which is not a transition for humanity but a genocide-in-planning that can more accurately be called the Post-Human Future, the roboticization of our simiian species to function like “intelligent” machines, albeit with less efficiency. Among that list of MIT Media Lab notables one can detect a Turing machine logic that reduces human cognition to electro-mechanical imaging, processing and patterning programs as opposed to our mammalian intuitive natural perceptions and surreal leaps of logic. The Media Lab promotes interdisciplinary attempts to render thought into algorithms, essentially in denial of the human propensity to a higher calling as well as our negation capability to hold out for a more demanding solution than what’s on offer, or as Nancy Reagan put it: “Just say no.” And that is exactly why the managerial class prefers mechanics over human intelligence. At a macro level, the post-human agenda is to turn a maddeningly complex human society into an ant colony.

George Church, molecular biologist specializing in genetic editing, CRISPR, was co-initiator of the BRAIN project launched by President Barack Obama, which is (face it, folks) a continuation of MK-ULTRA, using plug-in chips to fine-tune cognition after the initial experiments by those pioneering Doctors Sydney Gottlieb with LSD studies and Ewan Cameron through electro-shock therapy produced such excellent results in the assignments for Mark David Chapman and Whitey Bulger.

An innovator of chip-DNA synthesis, Professor Church has been the director of research projects at the Department of Energy (DOE), National Institutes of Health (NIH, genomics) and the Wyss Institute of Synthetic Biology. For those who recall my Pizzagate series, Hansjorg Weiss is the Swiss philanthropist who ran Synthes, a producer of prosthetics, implants and biomaterials, which was hit with medical malpractice suits for illegal experiments that killed several patients. Wyss was a friend and associate of John Podesta until he was scared off by the risk of blackmail following sexual performances at private showings. Herr Doktor Victor Frankenstein, where are you now that we need you?

To simplify the difference between the mechanistic post-human approach to science and a humanitarian philosophy of existence, one can look at MIT Lab researcher Aya Bdair’s “little bits” concept, which represents proteins and other long molecules with manipulable magnetic blocks, something like Lego pieces without holes and pegs. Linking her twisting pieces gets the player to falsely assume that biology is mechanical and that its biochemical configurations can be represented through mathematical modeling. In opposition to this constructionist viewpoint, life is energy, electromagnetic and biochemical via synapses and cytokines, moving with ever-changeable fluidity and reactivity to the point of being uncontrollable by external intervention, being both dancer and the dance, and at the quantum level ultimately inter-dimensional. A computer cannot begin to model those levels of complexity and therefore replicating even the simpler life-forms is beyond the grasp of the futurists.

Jeffrey Epstein’s sex life reflected that mechanistic outlook, with insertion of an organ in to another organ (as put in the Robert Burns poem that influenced “The Catcher in the Rye“, “when a body meets a body passing through the rye”) with casual sex as a mere physical function, devoid of the energy dimensions of hormones, nerves pulses, emotional longing, psychological imaginings and mammalian affection. His research quest for synthetic biology spawning of sex cyborgs reflected his mental isolation from the immense range of expectations, perceptions, reactions, emotions and communication that arises spontaneously in the love between a man and a woman. A cyborg made of “beyond meat” protein and methyl cellulose controlled by artificial intelligence algorithms is not in anyway equal to the human it is modeled after. After all the experiments with sex cyborgs are done, one fact will remain: the Post-Human Future is a dead end.

Negroponte’s inhuman past in Cambodia

Can you recall Colonel Kurtz, with Marlon Brando in that role? “The horror, the horror!” Like that PT boat crew sent to terminate the madman gone native, I was one of troopers who stumbled on Nick Negroponte’s encampment inside a sprawling Cambodian orphanage. The path to it, however, with dirty cops pointing guns to my head.

Media Lab founder Nicholas Negroponte was our Col. Kurtz, a core organizer of a pre-puberty predator ring in charge of kiddie porn sent by encrypted files from his computer lab at a Cambodian orphanage on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. At the time over several years after 2002, I was a member of an unofficial “The Fathers’ Group” of anti-pedophile activists who defied bribed-off Cambodian police and sex fiends at the U.S. Embassy to crack a child-sex ring run by Bernard Krisher, former UPI chief based in Tokyo who was a Moonie, and Nicholas Negroponte, who set up an Apple computer-learning center with video equipment and an outdoors transmission tower in the schoolyard, to transmit rape clips of boys as young as 6 years old. Shutting down his child-sex coven was a brutal challenge involving murders, assaults and threats, eventually resolved only through the intervention of Her Highness Queen Monica (the Cambodian orphanage affair is recapped at the end of this essay).

This notorious affair, which was sanitized over but never punished by the State Department, CIA or FBI, served up proof of Nick Negroponte’s role as a purveyor of child-rape porn to elite government officials and their corporate supporters. Without an ounce of official support, our team used night-vision videocams to provide the honest Cambodian cops with the identities of sex predators entering and leaving bordellos pimping sub-teen children.

Later, the investigative journalist Wayne Madsen traveled with me to the orphanage where teachers informed us of “weekend parties” for visiting American diplomats and corporate executives in 5-star hotels in Phnom Penh. Dozens of children were sexually violated, with a core group of compliant victims of both sexes of “average age 10 years old.” Jeffrey Epstein is a statutory rapist, Negroponte’s group are by comparison monsters, who compounded their criminal spree by arranging the murder of Aaron Swartz, the heroic Reddit editor who broke into an internal link on the MIT campus to hack the wire feed of child-sex videos prior to encryption. The corrupt New York police, of course, attributed his hanging by the neck in his apartment, even though the belt was several sizes larger than his waistline.

Another assault from the Krisher-Negroponte lackeys in Phnom Penh resulted in a roadway ambush outside of Sihanoukville on a New Zealand collegue in the father’s group, who had met with Madsen and also knew an informer inside the Krisher child-care NGO network in Phnom Penh. In the middle of night, he was beaten by the paid-off cops until blood poured out of his ears and all 10 fingers were bent back out of their sockets in the hands. He eventually died a few years later due to the long-term effects of those injuries. The pedophile coven were disappointed that he had survived the attack.

The paid-for hit was in retaliation for one of their own volunteers at a pre-school nursery who had visited him to disclose the sexual abuses by the Krisher ring, which included the boss’s son and daughter-in-law. That informant was soon thereafter executed and they tried to assign the blame to our member. The coven suspected our Kiwi friend of bribery, never considering that one of theirs might have pangs of moral conscience about organized rape sanctioned by the highest officials in the U.S. government and its intelligence operations in Southeast Asia.

The existence of Cambodian child-sex tapes was detected by reddit editor Aaron Swartz who pursued the clues from San Francisco to New York and onto Cambridge, Mass., to the MIT campus sprawled along the dirty water of the River Charles. As I have pointed out in the past, he was then working on research grant for the Edmond Safra foundation, under the cover of open access to academic research but his personal passion was to expose the politically connected pedophile. The late tycoon Safra gets a lot of bad press from Illuminati-controlled publishers, but in reality he was one of few traditional Jews to resist their perversion of the Jewish community and the Hebraic tradition. Although I’ve been vocal on this issue, it really is the moral responsibility of faithful Jews to launch action against the perverse and criminal heresy.

The Original Blackfriar’s Bridge

Negroponte is an Italian surname that translates as the Black Bridge, named for the wooden passage over the dark waters of the channel between the Greek mainland near Athens and Euboea Island in Aegean. The Venetian fortress in Chalkida, Euboea or Evvia, is therefore called Negroponte castle. The eponymous Greek Jewish family of Nick and John were perhaps servants of the Venetian lords. The charismatic “messiah” Sabbatai Zevi was born in Smyrna, a port on the Turkish mainland, but his family were originally from Greece, and possibly served as spies for Venice following the fall of Euboea to the Turks in 1490. In contemporary history, the Negroponte family’s most prominent members are the brother Nicholas with the MIT Media Lab and John, the former neoconservative UN Ambassador for George W. Bush. By no coincidence, the Podesta family, headed by John and Tony of Pizzagate fame are also long ago Venetian Jews, whose surname derives from “pedestal”, the corrupt concierges in charge of audiences with the Doge (ruler) of Venice. That city, being allied with the Eastern Roman Empire rather than Rome, was a center of barbaric sorcery and witchcraft, as implied by the custom of wearing masks to disguise one’s going to places of illicit activity, run by the Khazarian Jews, a black tradition kept up by the Negroponte brothers.

A large population of Khazar Jews emigrated from the region between the Caspian Sea and Georgia to flee the rival Turks (both tribes have origins in what is now Xinjiang, western China). A stream of Khazar Jewish refugees moved through Venetian Euboea northward to the Black Sea to form large communities in greater Poland and Lithuania, the homelands of the Epstein and Wexner families respectively. Others like the Negropontes remained behind, living under Turkish rule, when in the early 18th century the self-proclaimed “messiah” Sabbatai Zevi recruited much of Greek Jewry to convert to Islam as the “Donmeh” or hidden Jews, first disclosed in recent years by Wayne Madsen in his field reporting in Turkey. The Shabbetean cult was, as discussed in my earlier articles on the Epstein-Wexner affair a promoter of pedophilia, group orgies and homosexuality, introducing these to the Hapsburg court and to the Frankfurt-Hesse region of Germany, the center of financial power for the Rothschild house of usury. This deep history of a vicious warped cult explains my description of them as a coven.

Global Population Reduction

Bill Gates has been a guest, at least on one flight, aboard Epstein’s Lolita Express Boeing 727. Their secretive encounter goes a long way toward understanding the hidden agenda behind transhumanism, which is the planned genocide of the major of the human population, which will eliminate more lives than all previous genocidal events in past history. Never mind Himmler’s drop in the bucket compared to the Gates-Epstein plan for mass destruction. The very tact that androids are going to be needed as workers and personal assistants indicated at least 7 billion people are being targeted in the soon-coming clean sweep. The biowarfare labs certainly have sufficient deadly pathogens to accomplish the task while the elites will be in Earth orbit or on moon bases.

“Transhumanism” has genocidal implications of technology-enabled savagery at its most extreme, which is why I prefer the more accurate term of the post-human order. In this regard it is quite fitting for Joi Ito being a Japanese citizen to be running the project much like the”modernization campaign” at Nanking achieved by eliminating its native population in 1937-38.

It may seem financially inefficient to spend many millions of dollars on technology-enhanced sexuality when humans are willing to that task for free or, nowadays, the price of dinner and hotel room with a Tinder date. Investment in human-resembling cyborgs makes more sense in terms of the population-reduction agenda of the Gates and Rockefeller foundations. Jeffrey Epstein served on the board of trustees for the Rockefeller University, one of the original brain trusts for eugenics and population control of lesser subtypes. From the perspective of reducing the total number of births worldwide, this anti-humanistic agenda has been advanced through investment in promoting sexual identity movements, since homosexuality and transgender options result in birth-rate reduction without surgical intervention. Partner androids, far more advanced that present-technology sex dolls, will be the means to maintain the illusion of normative coupled relationships while precluding the potential for breeding offspring.

Due to religion-based belief systems, sex-partner cyborgs will not reduce population growth in Muslim and Catholic developing economies, which oppose popular use of condoms and birth-control pills. By logical deduction, human-resembling sex androids are being develop for after the great kill-off of 7 billion people. Sex cyborbs are, therefore, part of post-genocide social engineering for the planned survivor group, to prevent another wave of human population expansion, in other words, a steady-state demographic system.

Given the time-factor of development of “near-real” substitute spouses, say within 20 years, you my reader are scheduled to die in the soon-arriving genocide. So eat, drink and be merry, or join the resistance. Anyone with children or grandchildren had better choose the latter, due to your moral obligation for family preservation and social responsibility. While the festering genocide is still in preparation, one must activate a counter-strategy and prepare for war. My father, as I mentioned, was in the American military unit that broken up the gates of Dachau, which in fact are not as bad as things to come in our brief moment of time. Remember this is a battle for the human future against insanely evil forces, so none can be spared for the crime of consenting to the agenda.

The world has recently seen the deliberate release of cloned mosquitoes that transmit ovary-destroying toxins into the human bloodstream during the Zika scare in Brazil and the ongoing vaccine-induced ebola “epidemic” in West Africa and now the Congo region. Under the cover of modern medicine and vaccination, the Rockefellers, Gates and Epstein’s convoy of tech companies, are preparing catastrophic campaigns of sneak mass murder.

The coming struggle is on two fronts: Against criminal science and also in strong opposition to Muslim and Catholic ideological propaganda against birth control in the developing countries, along with the “escape valve” of migration to the developed economies. Population-exporting nations, regardless of their natural wealth, need to be quarantined by sealing borders, so that the rising populations threaten their own national leaders and religious fraudsters who promote a high birth rate. Until those false values are squelched and realistic policies, there will be no peace or sustained development and therefore compromise is futile.

Be very clear that a new world war is shaping up, and planning and preemptive action needs to be taken against the two extremes: the advocates of population growth and the supports of genocidal population reduction. The global population will have to decline, but this should come about by consent and social policy, not by either terrorism or genocide. Jeffrey Epstein left behind time bombs that must be defused and junked. There are hundreds of thousands of madmen like him among us, and they must be rooted out from positions of power and influence, or there will be hell to pay in days and hours to come.

A whistleblower with deep connections within government dropped bomb after bomb in this broadcast from BeachBroadcast.com The first video is the entire interview which is a must listen while the second video is a summary of the hot details. Get this everywhere patriots! It’s HUGE! Alex Jones is refusing to report it because it’s not HIS story of course as usual! Put heat on Jones at showtips@infowars.com and tell him no more product sales if he censors this story! He should bring on the people who did this interview and John but I’ll bet any patriot $100 he won’t! This story is like something out of a movie!

Summary Video

Here’s some of the stuff covered.

In one part the whistleblower named “John” talks about how the FBI runs the terror attacks on America by pushing people they have infiltrated to do them! Just like the first WTC bombing! And when these attacks are planned the FBI asks, “What’s the spread?” which means how many civilians can we kill. They want maximum body counts! If there won’t be enough body bags they aren’t interested! This is the sick evil government we have now! And if any of you don’t support Trump and still vote democrat after learning all this stuff in this interview you’re evil too because you support killing God’s babies!

Rod Rosenstein was a cleaner who was busy sweeping up all the DOJ dirty secrets so Trump couldn’t find out about them and he was involved of course with framing Trump for the Russia hoax. Rod Rosenstein reaches out to the black hats, DEA, DOJ, ATF, Secret Service and a hit man for help! Rosenstein creates a thumb drive that will be switched with the real Seth Rich thumb drive when they take him out so when it’s found on Seth Rich’s body they can use this bogus information they put on there to frame Trump! Comey, McCabe and Rosenstein were all involved in this effort to frame Trump using this bogus thumb drive put on Seth Rich after they killed him and took his thumb drive! We’re three years in and not ONE person has every gotten in trouble at all for anything! It’s outrageous!

The DEA reaches out to the hit man who reaches out to the MS-13 gang who get two guys to do the dead. These two MS-13 members were originally supposed to badly beat up Seth Rich but he fought back and they had to shoot him. They did take the thumb drive and gave it to a guy named “Rosie” at the DEA. The MS-13 members originally drove to Seth Rich’s house from South Carolina on stolen tags and when “Rosie” at the DEA found out, he was beyond livid!

Seth Rich was still alive when he got to the hospital. There were two people that arrived at the hospital to make sure Seth Rich didn’t talk – Donna Brazille and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser! Two weeks after Seth Rich was killed, Donna Brazille becomes the DNC chair!

Meanwhile, “Rosie” from the DEA is so mad at the MS-13 assassins because they drove to DC with a stolen tag that drives to South Carolina and kills them himself! (Note by Glenn: I absolutely remember the news story about the MS-13 gang members killed in South Carolina) I had a feeling this was connected because it happened so fast after the Seth Rich murder. I knew it was probably somebody tying up loose ends.)

On his way to South Carolina, “Rosie” switches out of his government car and into his wife’s white car. His wife had an Easy Pass in the car and there was a photo taken of the car as it passed through the toll booth. This whistleblower knows where this photo exists but nobody in government is helping him! He’s been to see Nunes and nothing has happened yet because it’s been stopped by other people at every turn!

This whistleblower “John” went and approached a group of people within government to give them all this information! But surprise they were cockroaches too and they did nothing! They held on to the information for over two years! This group tried to take “John’s” name completely out of the information packet and put their names on it. They wanted to take credit for it all! Then they started offering $100,000 bribes to John to give them more information! John didn’t want anything for it!

Devin Nunes offered John secret service protection but this “group” stopped it! The then got the secret service protection authorized again for John but Rod Rosenstein shut it down when he was still there! John knows where this Seth Rich drive is! He knows everything! He’s a hero! John needs protection so I’m asking all patriots to send this story viral and get everybody you know to tweet Trump @potus and @realdonaldtrump! Go for it BeforeitsNews patriots! Let’s see what you can do with this story! May the light of God light up this story over the next 24 hours! I’m also asking all patriots to pray right now that this story reaches Trump!

Dekalb PD seek help in locating suspect in the alleged murder of his mother

One of my people was represented by this guy, and he stole $45,000.00 of her settlement. She and some other victims testified in Court a couple weeks ago. He was sentenced to 30 years, with 15 to serve. He was supposed to turn himself in 02/01/2019. He did not show up.

Curtis Ellis: CHECKLIST OF HILLARY’S CRIMES ALL IN 1 CASE

UNITED NATIONS – The Department of Justice dropped its case against an American charged with attempting to ship arms to Islamic terrorists. This one story contains pretty much everything that’s wrong with the Clinton-Obama regime: law breaking, deception, aid to Islamist terrorists, the mixing of public and private business and the politicization of all government agencies, including Justice.

It’s not like we haven’t seen it before with this crowd, but it’s rare we get to see it all in one place. Now we have.

As WND previously reported, on Feb. 11, 2014, the Department of Justice indicted arms dealer Marc Turi for allegedly making false statements in filing to obtain a license to supply weapons to Libya. The indictment essentially said Turi knew that weapons he was ostensibly selling to the Gulf state of Qatar would end up arming Islamist militias in Libya fighting to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi.

Turi’s defense attorney said if the case came to trial it would expose a covert gun-running operation conceived by the Clinton State Department to arm al-Qaida-affiliated militias in Libya. The operation would be a violation of a U.N. arms embargo and U.S. laws against providing material support for terrorist organizations. Under 18 U.S. Code 2339A & 2339B, penalties for providing or attempting to provide material support to terrorism include imprisonment from 15 years to life.

The Obama administration apparently knew Turi wasn’t bluffing. Rather than expose Hillary Clinton to campaign-killing headlines – and expose the public to the truth – Justice dropped the case.

If the case had gone forward, the American people would have learned the details about Hillary’s decision to turn her back on a key U.S. ally in the war on terror, arm known radical Islamist terrorists, reward a donor to the Clinton Foundation and launch a (second) foreign war on false pretenses.

A new report from the British House of Commons details the litany of lies and deceptions Hillary used to peddle her war in Libya.

Hillary said the rebellion in Libya was a spontaneous pro-democracy “Arab Spring” uprising. But it was well known long before 2011 that the groups involved in the uprising were radical Islamic terrorists.

The leaders of the “civilian uprising” were the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG. They had pledged allegiance to al-Qaida, and as the British tell us, they refused to take orders from non-Islamist commanders and assassinated the then-leader of the rebel army, Abdel Fattah Younes.

LIFG members had been jailed by Gadhafi until they pledged they’d never use violence against the regime. But nearly as soon as they were released, they took up arms against the Gadhafi regime.

Hillary for Prison 2 Yard Sign

As for Hillary’s claim that a civilian massacre was imminent, there was ample evidence that wasn’t in the cards. Libyan doctors told United Nations investigators that more than 200 corpses were Tripoli’s morgues following fighting in late February 2011, but only two were female – indicating Gadhafi’s forces targeted male combatants, not civilians. Nor did his forces attack civilians after retaking towns from the rebels in early February 2011.

But Hillary had made up her mind to back the radical Islamic terrorists against the advice of military and intelligence advisers, and she would tell any lie to make it happen.

The Wall Street Journal reports the Libyan jihadis received at least 18 shipments of arms from Qatar. One of the shipments from Qatar was intercepted by Gadhafi, as WND reported.

These arms shipments are significant for several reasons. Not least important, the rebels were designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization and it’s against the law to provide material support for terrorist organizations.

The Qatar connection is revealing. Qatar has donated millions to the Clinton Foundation. The Qatari royal family had back channel meetings with Secretary Clinton at the State Department. Maybe that’s what Hillary was referring to when, drumming up support for the Libya war, she told Arab leaders, “It’s important to me personally.

To recap: Lying to the American people – check. Putting personal interests before the national interest – check. Knowingly supporting radical Islamic terrorists – check. Breaking the law – check. Corruption of law enforcement – check. Cover-up – check. Appallingly bad judgment – check.

Hillary for prison 2016 Yard Sign

It was bad enough when Hillary Clinton dithered while radical Islamic terrorists attacked our diplomatic compound in Benghazi. Now we learn she helped give them the weapons they used to kill four Americans.

Nuclear Engineer: “Very huge catastrophe” for melted fuel to burn into ground — Radioactive material “will go all around the world” once in underground water — Chernobyl made cement barrier below reactor, #Fukushima did not (VIDEO)

Global Green USA: The Future of Nuclear Energy, Chernobyl and Fukushima:

At 2:00 in Natalia Manzurova, nuclear engineer called to Chernobyl for 4+ years to study radiation’s effect on the environment and to help cleanup workers:

To cover the burning reactor core, they started dropping bags of sand and cement into the reactor and all this stuff — due to very high temperature — melted, and covered the burning reactor as a lid. And for 24 hours the whole world was on the edge of a very huge catastrophe because from above the reactor was covered, was closed, but it was going to burn down. If the reactor burned through the ground, then all this huge radioactivity will go to underground water, and it will go all around the world.

In Fukushima, now they are cooling the upper part of the reactor, but the center of the reactor has been melted down, and this melted reactor will discharge huge temperature to the bottom of the reactor. If the tragedy that the melted reactors will go through the bottom to the underground, it’s the question.

Russian miners, in order for this not to happen, they had to drill tunnels. Sacrificing their own lives, they put cement into the tunnels on the bottom of the reactor, so the reactor will be closed from beneath.

———–

People think of the Japanese as being technologically much more advanced than much of the world.  What did they do @ Fukushima?  Absolutely nothing.  TEPCO has murdered us all, and instead of being made to answer for their crimes, they changed their name, and off to business as usual, literally walking away from the continuous radiation leaks, further murdering the rest of the world.  Why the hell does no one care?  Are we the equivalent of the walking zombies of tv shows?

Detailed Analysis Results in the Port of Fukushima Daiichi NPS, around Discharge Channel and Bank Protection, Jan.30, 2014:

“The highest dose among the results previously announced in the ‘Detailed Analysis Results in the Port of Fukushima Daiichi NPS, around Discharge Channel and Bank Protection’”

Wall St. Journal, Jan. 31, 2014: Among the radioactive materials that were dispersed at the site, the potentially lethal alkaline earth metal [strontium] poses the biggest immediate concern, because, unlike cesium, it doesn’t get trapped in soil and tends to accumulate in bones of fish and animals if ingested. […] strontium has been slowly moving to deeper into ground water, which could be moving toward the ocean. […] Radiation levels in groundwater sampled from several monitoring wells have been very slowly rising since last summer and radioactive strontium has been detected since October, according to data from Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

The Asahi Shimbun, Jan. 31, 2014: A team of reporters from The Asahi Shimbun visited the site on Jan. 29. […] Another problem exists underneath the embankment on the eastern side of the plant site. Radioactive materials have been found to be spreading under that embankment. […]

City Channel 4, Published Jan. 21, 2014 (at 35:45):

Audience Question: I recently received a YouTube depicting radioactive contamination across the Pacific near to the U.S. West Coast as a result of the Fukushima reactor. No other news source appears to have acknowledged this scenario least of all the mainstream media. Is that fact or fiction.

Dr. Maureen McCue, founding member, faculty, and former director of the University of Iowa Global Health Studies Program and adjunct clinical professor in the Colleges of Public Health: I think it’s it fact that the mainstream media has not covered the phenomenon. I think we also experience regulatory capture in this country. I don’t know and I don’t think any of us know how much of the contamination is approaching the West Coast. It makes sense, when you look at ocean currents and wind streams, and the movement of marine life, that it will eventually reach the West Coast. In what concentrations, what amounts, nobody actually knows. It’s predicted that in fact it may concentrate as much on the West Coast as anywhere in Fukushima as it keeps coming wave after wave.

NHK, Jan. 31, 2014: TEPCO to look for more leaks at Fukushima reactor — The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is slowly finding out more about the damage at one of the reactor containment vessels. The destruction was caused by 2011 accident. […] The engineers are investigating leaks in a number of places in the containment vessel that houses the core at the No.1 reactor [and] estimate that up to 3.3 tons of water per hour is leaking from the 2 leaks. The operator is pouring 4.5 tons of cooling water an hour into the reactor. This means more than one ton of water may be leaking from unknown holes or cracks, as the water does not stay in the containment vessel.

NHK Newsline, Jan. 31, 2014: [Tepco is] discovering more damage at the reactor containment vessel. It says it’s going to take steps to avoid further contamination in  the area […] The engineers have also learned that more than one ton of water [per hour] is leaking form elsewhere. They plan to send in a robot again to search for other possible problems. They say they will expand their search to include the suppression chamber linked to the containment vessel. […]

Title: Model simulations on the long-term dispersal of 137Cs released into the Pacific Ocean off Fukushima

Source: IOPscience

Author: Erik Behrens, Franziska U Schwarzkopf, Joke F Lübbecke and Claus W Böning

Date: July 9, 2012

Emphasis Added

In the following years, the tracer cloud continuously expands laterally, with maximum concentrations in its central part heading east. While the northern portion is gradually invading the Bering Sea, the main tracer patch reaches the coastal waters of North America after 5–6 years, with maximum relative concentrations ( > 1 × 10−4) covering a broad swath of the eastern North Pacific between Vancouver Island and Baja California. Simultaneously some fraction of the southern rim of the tracer cloud becomes entrained in the North Equatorial Current (NEC), resulting in a westward extending wedge around 20°N that skirts the northern shores of the Hawaiian Archipelago. After 10 years the concentrations become nearly homogeneous over the whole Pacific, with higher values in the east, extending along the North American coast with a maximum (~1 × 10−4) off Baja California. The southern portion of the tracer cloud is carried westward by the NEC across the subtropical Pacific, leading to increasing concentrations in the Kuroshio regime again.[…]

Region I = Western Pacific

With caution given to the various idealizations (unknown actual oceanic state during release, unknown release area, no biological effects included, see section 3.4), the following conclusions may be drawn. (i) Dilution due to swift horizontal and vertical dispersion in the vicinity of the energetic Kuroshio regime leads to a rapid decrease of radioactivity levels during the first 2 years, with a decline of near-surface peak concentrations to values around 10 Bq m−3 (based on a total input of 10 PBq). The strong lateral dispersion, related to the vigorous eddy fields in the mid-latitude western Pacific, appears significantly under-estimated in the non-eddying (0.5°) model version. (ii) The subsequent pace of dilution is strongly reduced, owing to the eastward advection of the main tracer cloud towards the much less energetic areas of the central and eastern North Pacific. (iii) The magnitude of additional peak radioactivity should drop to values comparable to the pre-Fukushima levels after 6–9 years (i.e. total peak concentrations would then have declined below twice pre-Fukushima levels). (iv) By then the tracer cloud will span almost the entire North Pacific, with peak concentrations off the North American coast an order-of-magnitude higher than in the western Pacific.

MIT Center for International Studies — Japan’s Continuing Nuclear Nightmare, Oct 24, 2013:

Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (at 1:30:00 in): Talking about some of the failures […] what I’ve discovered on the academic side, is that when we went to offer our service, we wanted to go and help out, we didn’t have an agency in this country that really had an interest. NOAA was given the authority to look at this disaster and see what the US response should be. Their reaction was to continue this modeling effort to try and model where these things might be at. Not to do the on-the-ground field efforts. They said we don’t do that, we don’t measure radionuclides. Then they’d point across the aisle to the Department of Energy […] the ocean, that’s not their thing, it’s salty — that’s not their problem. Here we have in our country many reactors on oceans and don’t have even an authority or body that has a mission that includes fate of those radionuclides in the ocean. I think that’s a failure that we still haven’t solved […] It’s very obvious when you hear the stories about leaking tanks on land getting into the ocean, there’s a connection there. But we failed to fill that in, our ability to understand the consequences. […] One example of something we’re still trying to plug up as a failure.

‘Your Call’ hosted by Rose Aguilar, KALW, Jan. 16, 2014:

Ken Buesseler, senior scientist in marine chemistry & geochemistry at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (At 5:30 in): Historical weirdness going on — NOAA doesn’t study radionuclides per se at all in their programs, so they were looking at some of the debris and their predictions, but not the radioactive contaminants. That typically falls to the Department of Energy, but they tend to only focus their resources and expertise on land and groundwater […] not the general spread of radionuclides in the marine environment. So, we kind of fell between the cracks […] no one was responsible.
