Court evidence show British government lying about Skripal case

Irrefutable evidence that the British government has been lying outright to Parliament, to the EU, to NATO, to the United Nations, and above all to their own people, about their degree of certainty of the alleged chemical attack on their soil, has come from their own High Court.

    While some EU countries are considering the option to recall their diplomats from Russia or expel Russian diplomats due to the incident with British spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter allegedly poisoned in Salisbury, sworn Court evidence directly obtained from Porton Down is strictly incompatible with what the British government has been saying.

    Scientists at Porton Down, the site of the Ministry of Defence’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), have not yet positively identified the alleged nerve agent as a “Novichok”, as opposed to “a closely related agent”.

    The Evidence
    16. The evidence in support of the application is contained within the applications themselves (in particular the Forms COP 3) and the witness statements.
    17. I consider the following to be the relevant parts of the evidence. I shall identify the witnesses only by their role and shall summarise the essential elements of their evidence.
    i) CC: Porton Down Chemical and Biological Analyst
    Blood samples from Sergei Skripal and Yulia Skripal were analysed and the findings indicated exposure to a nerve agent or related compound. The samples tested positive for the presence of a Novichok class nerve agent or closely related agent.

    And even if it were a “Novichok”, that would not prove manufacture in Russia. Moreover, a “closely related agent” could be manufactured by literally scores of state and non-state actors.

    The evidence indicates that in fact it may not have been such a nerve agent as is being alleged, much less in the Novichok class of fluorophosphates. That fits with the Salisbury Hospital emergency room doctor’s letter to The Times on March 16, in which he stated that exactly three people have been treated there, all for poisoning, with none of the three patients receiving antidotes for nerve gases.

    The attending physician went on to say no patients have experienced symptoms of nerve agent poisoning in Salisbury.

    Sir, Further to your report (“Poison exposure leaves almost 40 needing treatment”, Mar 14), may I clarify that no patients have experienced symptoms of nerve agent poisoning in Salisbury and there have only ever been three patients with significant poisoning. Several people have attended the emergency department concerned that they may have been exposed. None has had symptoms of poisoning and none has needed treatment. Any blood tests performed have shown no abnormality. No member of the public has been contaminated by the agent involved.

    Despite the clear evidence that British Prime Minister is lying, some EU member states are considering the possibility of recalling national diplomats and/or expelling Russian ones, a European source told Russian news agency TASS on the sidelines of the EU Council in Brussels on Friday.

    According to the diplomat, the countries include Poland, France and the three Baltic states. The EU has meanwhile decided to recall Ambassador to Russia Markus Ederer for consultations, the source added.

    On March 12, British Prime Minister Theresa May said it was “highly likely” that Russia was responsible for the attack on the Skripals and went on to accuse Russia of “an unlawful use of force” against her country.

    Both British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson and Theresa May have directly lied – May actually lied to the House of Commons. By parliamentary convention, a minister who has lied to the House should resign, as John Profumo did in 1963.

    A new article in the New Scientists confirmed the claims by various Russian scientists that the “Novichok” agents may have been produced elsewhere:

    Weapons experts have told New Scientist that a number of countries legally created small amounts of Novichok after it was revealed in 1992 and a production method was later published.

    In an interview with Deutsche Welle Johnson admitted that Porton Down had “Novichok” agents when the incident in Salisbury happened: “They do [have samples of ‘Novichok’]. And they were absolutely categorical and I asked the guy myself, I said, ‘Are you sure?’ And he said there’s no doubt.”

    It took more than two weeks after the incident for the British government to invite the OPCW to take part in the investigation of the case. The head of the OPCW says it will take another three weeks for the organisation to analyze the samples the British laboratory now handed over.

    The British police maintain that they would require several months to find out what happened to the Skripals.

    The British government, however, was sure of “Russian” involvement within a week.

    Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey, the police officer exposed to the unknown substance in the Salisbury attack, has been discharged from hospital. Bailey told The Independent that the experience had been ”completely surreal” and that “life would never be the same again”.

    A chief executive of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, on Thursday said the Skripals remain in hospital in a critical but stable condition.

    Earlier, the court was told the Skripals may have suffered life-long brain damage as a result of the substance they ingested.

    “The precise effect of their exposure on their long term health remains unclear but medical tests indicate that their mental capacity might be compromised to an unknown and so far unascertained degree,” the judge noted. The pair remain in intensive care under heavy sedation.

    A consultant treating them said Skripal was unable to communicate in any way, and his daughter was unable to communicate in any “meaningful way”.

    Skripal had links to the authors of the infamous Steele dossier, a smear job paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign against Donald Trump. The attack may have been a way to prevent Skripal from spilling the beans on Hillary.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”. The picture is from a protest against covid restrictions in Amsterdam in January of last year. Photo: Wion

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
