The Mystery Of The Death Of Seth Rich

Are We Being Distracted from Bigger Issues In Media's Obsession Over Fake Trump/Russia Collusion?

Let’s examine the issues here. According to the Washington Post, Trump gave his Russian counterparts information “considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government.” Specifically:

Apparently, this information was too sensitive for Trump to give to Russian representatives, but not too sensitive for anonymous officials to leak to the Washington Postwho turn broadcasted it to the entire world. Although the Post hasn’t divulged the minute specifics of this classified information, the outlet did state the following:

“The Post is withholding most plot details, including the name of the city, at the urging of officials who warned that revealing them would jeopardize important intelligence capabilities.”
In other words, the Post also knows the details of this classified information. Anonymous officials can leak sensitive information to an unaccountable media outlet, but Trump can’t disclose that information to a delegation of people who could actually benefit from the information? How does that work?

According to Russian-state owned RTRussian president Vladimir Putin is ready to release a full transcript of the meeting in question to prove that no sensitive leak took place in the first place.

This Washington Post story is quite possibly a distraction (one of many distractions taking place right now). Most of the corporate media is paying very little attention to a story that broke on Fox News regarding the murder of DNC staff member Seth Rich, who many believe to be behind the leaks that rocked the Democratic campaign last year.

Much like the PostFox News also relied on an anonymous source, but the story appeared to contain a crucial difference at first. A former D.C. homicide detective and Fox News commentator, Rod Wheeler, who was hired by Rich’s family to probe the case (he is not an anonymous source) seemed to confirm there was email exchange between Rich and Wikileaks, stating, “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”

According to CNN, Wheeler was actually referring to reports within the media and said he only learned of any potential link between Wikileaks and Rich from a reporter at Fox News.

While both sides of the political coin incessantly chase these rabbit-hole windmills in order to try to demonize or absolve Russia of the numerous allegations against them, something far more sinister is playing out behind the curtains.

As much as the mass media would like to pretend Trump is really in bed with Russia – and as much as the Trump administration has proven itself to be adept at playing along with this narrative – the truth is that Syrian troops backed by Russian airpower were advancing towards an American training base in Syria over the weekend.

The doomsday clock is ticking, and Russia and the U.S. are seconds away from an all-out confrontation. The neocons within the Trump administration want these wars to go ahead as planned, but the nationalists who bolstered Trump in his bid to become U.S. president do not.

The other disturbing aspect of this Washington Post story is that unless someone from within Trump’s meeting in the Oval Office directly spilled this information to the Post, the transfer of this information to the media entails that the CIA could very well be spying on Trump, too.

As it transpires, the Washington Post is practically in bed with the CIA, anyway.
The CIA has an agenda, and they want to quell any hopes of a potential peaceful future between Russia and the U.S. Without the American public fearing a Kremlin monster hell-bent on world domination, the CIA and many other global institutions would cease to have any real meaning or purpose.

No matter how much the media desperately tries to get people to focus away from the murder of Seth Rich and make false claims that the parents don’t want the hunt for his killer, Rich’s parents are very thankful for those helping to find his killer. Kim Dotcom who claims to know Seth Rich will have a public statement released on Tuesday, though we don’t know if he will have any bombshells related to Seth Rich. What we do have is a video statement released by Seth Rich’s parents a couple of weeks ago, thanking people on the Internet for help finding the killer of their son.

Despite media censorship: Seth Rich parents thank people for help finding son’s killer

The MEDIA is lying about Seth Rich saying #SethRich parents want this to stop. Here's a video from his parents THANKING the internet!

The media can lie and obfuscate all they want. It’s no coincidence that once the story about Seth Rich’s murder came up again last weekend, the so called “leaks” from the Washington Post and New York Times began. The Democrats and Hillary Clinton are trying to hide something regarding the murder of Seth Rich. The only way they know how is to illegally leak information to these two failing newspaper in hope of drawing American’s attention to the so called Russian collusion that doesn’t even exist.
The truth on Seth Rich’s murder will come out, and his parents will have some sort of vindication. But until it does, the media and Democrats are going to do whatever they can to avoid covering the story of Seth Rich and his mysterious murder last July.

This week, a bombshell was dropped concerning murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich who was gunned down in what is said to be an attempted robbery in Washington, DC last July, and that bombshell would lead anyone to believe he was the source of the leaked emails that Wikileaks published last year just before the Democratic National Convention.  However, the Russian Embassy in the United Kingdom responded to the news with a picture that we used and it seems to be implying that Hillary Clinton was behind his murder.

Last August, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange implied that Rich was the Wikileaks source for the release of tens of thousands of DNC emails that were released.

In speaking of Rich's murder and making the suggestion, Assange said, "We have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States."

Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide investigator told Fox News, “My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.  I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”

“The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” Wheeler told Fox 5 DC. “They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”

Wheeler also claims that a source inside the DC police department told him that investigators were told to stand down in Rich's case.

In mocking the mainstream media outlets like the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, etc. Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge commented, "We're currently waiting for Wapo to confirm that Trump actually insisted the Russians send this tweet."
Of course, President Trump didn't insist any such thing, but the fact that the Russian embassy would send out such a tweet indicates that they think she was behind Rich's death, and to be frank, I think that too.  After all, consider the long line of bodies strewn in the wake of Hillary Clinton's pursuit of political power.

An FBI forensic report of Rich's computer -- generated within 96 hours after Rich's murder -- showed he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time, the federal source told Fox News.
“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.
According to the late Gavin MacFadyen of Wikileaks, there were 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments from Democratic National Committee leaders that were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.  The emails were dated from January 2015 to May 2016.
The DNC emails were released just 12 days after Rich was murdered, which led to then DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning and a flood of questions being asked regarding Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's shady dealings.
Wikileaks announced a huge reward for information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of those that murdered Rich.
“WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to a conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich,” Wikileaks announced.
In addition to the money offered by Wikileaks, The Washington Metropolitan Police is offering a reward of up to $25,000 and Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman has offered a $130,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Rich's murderers.
Surveillance video does exist of Rich's murder.  As of now, those that murdered Seth Rich remain at large.
If you have information about who may have committed the crime, you are urged to call 202-727-9099 or text a message to 50411.
While I don't believe Hillary Clinton pulled the trigger, I do question whether or not she had something to do with the Rich's murder since the release of all those emails to Wikileaks occurred just before he was killed, and Wikileaks released them inside of two weeks of his death.  What do you think?

Seth Rich, Craig Murray and the Sinister Stewards of the National Security State

Why is it a “conspiracy theory” to think that a disgruntled Democratic National Committee staffer gave WikiLeaks the DNC emails, but not a conspiracy theory to think the emails were provided by Russia?


Which is the more likely scenario: That a frustrated employee leaked damaging emails to embarrass his bosses or a that foreign government hacked DNC computers for some still-unknown reason?

That’s a no-brainer, isn’t it?

Former-DNC employee, Seth Rich, not only had access to the emails, but also a motive. He was pissed about the way the Clinton crowd was “sandbagging” Bernie Sanders. In contrast, there’s neither evidence nor motive connecting Russia to the emails. On top of that,  WikiLeaks founder, Julien Assange (a man of impeccable integrity) has repeatedly denied that Russia gave him the emails which suggests the government investigation is completely misdirected. The logical course of action, would be to pursue the leads that are most likely to bear fruit, not those that originate from one’s own political bias. But, of course, logic has nothing to do with the current investigation, it’s all about politics and geopolitics.

We don’t know who killed Seth Rich and we’re not going to speculate on the matter here.  But we find it very strange that neither the media nor the FBI have pursued leads in the case that challenge the prevailing narrative on the Russia hacking issue. Why is that? Why is the media so eager to blame Russia when Rich looks like the much more probable suspect?

And why have the mainstream news organizations put so much energy into discrediting the latest Fox News report, when– for the last 10 months– they’ve showed absolutely zero interest in Rich’s death at all?

According to Fox News:

“The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, law enforcement sources told Fox News.

A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report detailing the contents of DNC staffer Seth Rich’s computer generated within 96 hours after his murder, said Rich made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time….

Rod Wheeler, a retired Washington homicide detective and Fox News contributor investigating the case on behalf of the Rich family, made the WikiLeaks claim, which was corroborated by a federal investigator who spoke to Fox News….

“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and Wikileaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.” (“Family of slain DNC staffer Seth Rich blasts detective over report of WikiLeaks link”, Fox News)

Okay, so where’s the computer? Who’s got Rich’s computer? Let’s do the forensic work and get on with it.

But the Washington Post and the other bogus news organizations aren’t interested in such matters because it doesn’t fit with their political agenda. They’d rather take pot-shots at Fox for running an article that doesn’t square with their goofy Russia hacking story. This is a statement on the abysmal condition of journalism today. Headline news has become the province of perception mandarins who use the venue to shape information to their own malign specifications, and any facts that conflict with their dubious storyline, are savagely attacked and discredited. Journalists are no longer investigators that keep the public informed, but paid assassins who liquidate views that veer from the party-line.

WikiLeaks never divulges the names of the people who provide them with information. Even so, Assange has not only shown an active interest in the Seth Rich case, but also offered a $20,000 reward for anyone providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of Rich’s murder. Why? And why did he post a link to the Fox News article on his Twitter account on Tuesday?

I don’t know, but if I worked for the FBI or the Washington Post, I’d sure as hell be beating the bushes to find out. And not just because it might help in Rich’s murder investigation, but also, because it could shed light on the Russia fiasco which is being used to lay the groundwork for impeachment proceedings. So any information that challenges the government version of events, could actually change

Have you ever heard of Craig Murray?

Murray should be the government’s star witness in the DNC hacking scandal, instead, no one even knows who he is. But if we trust what Murray has to say, then we can see that the Russia hacking story is baloney. The emails were “leaked” by insiders not “hacked” by a foreign government. Here’s the scoop from Robert Parry at Consortium News:

“Former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray, has suggested that the DNC leak came from a “disgruntled” Democrat upset with the DNC’s sandbagging of the Sanders campaign and that the Podesta leak came from the U.S. intelligence community….He (Murray) appears to have undertaken a mission for WikiLeaks to contact one of the sources (or a representative) during a Sept. 25 visit to Washington where he says he met with a person in a wooded area of American University. ….

Though Murray has declined to say exactly what the meeting in the woods was about, he may have been passing along messages about ways to protect the source from possible retaliation, maybe even an extraction plan if the source was in some legal or physical danger…Murray also suggested that the DNC leak and the Podesta leak came from two different sources, neither of them the Russian government.

“The Podesta emails and the DNC emails are, of course, two separate things and we shouldn’t conclude that they both have the same source,” Murray said. “In both cases we’re talking of a leak, not a hack, in that the person who was responsible for getting that information out had legal access to that information…

Scott Horton then asked, “Is it fair to say that you’re saying that the Podesta leak came from inside the intelligence services, NSA [the electronic spying National Security Agency] or another agency?”

“I think what I said was certainly compatible with that kind of interpretation, yeah,” Murray responded. “In both cases they are leaks by Americans.”

With all the hullabaloo surrounding the Russia hacking case, you’d think that Murray’s eyewitness account would be headline news, but not in Homeland Amerika where the truth is kept as far from the front page as humanly possible.

Bottom line: The government has a reliable witness (Murray) who can positively identify the person who hacked the DNC emails and, so far, they’ve showed no interest in his testimony at all.  Doesn’t that strike you as a bit weird?
