The Epstein 9/11 Octopus - Ripple Effect Roundtable

On this special 200th episode of The Ripple Effect podcast, James Corbett, Jason Bermas, Sam Tripoli and Whitney Webb join host Ricky Varandas for a roundtable discussion on Jeffrey Epstein, 9/11, and all the other tentacles of the octopus conspiracy.

12bytes: How is it that you have a discussion about the Epstein octopus without inviting one of the most important Epstein researchers, Ryan Dawson? Whitney Webb and Ryan Dawson are two of the most important people in this regard, but Ricky Varandas instead invites the sensationalist, pseudo-journalist Jason Bermas who, along with fellow moron Dylan Avery, was behind the 'Loose Change' videos which are so littered with impossibilities, fairy tales and stupidity regarding the 9/11 attack it's disgusting. As if that weren't enough, Varandas also invited Sam 'wanna-be-a-gangsta' Tripoli whose greatest intellectual contribution to the discussion is interjecting "OH MY GOD!" and "WOW!" repeatedly while others make their points. Luckily Webb dominates the conversation and reveals many extremely important highlights of the Epstein-Mossad-Jewish mafia conspiracy making the podcast worth watching.

Bolivia at the Crossroads: Choosing Between Continued Success or Handover to US Hegemony - Global Research

The United States has not stopped trying to change public opinion with false propaganda and making incredibly ludicrous promises to the population.

There are also flagrant lies circulating, that Evo and his families had stolen hundreds of millions of dollars and deposited them in a secret account in the Bank of the Vatican. Similar lies as are being spread about Nicolas Maduro, the Castro family, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the leaders of Iran and Syria and many more, who oppose the dictate of Washington.

Pro-Israel org says Warren campaign assured them that anti-occupation staffer wouldn’t be working on Middle East policy – Mondoweiss

The Democratic Majority for Israel (DMFI) was formed earlier this year by a group of well-connected Democrats and donors who were concerned about growing pro-Palestine attitudes within the party.

The group’s most consistent target has been IfNotNow, a progressive Jewish organization that has been asking the Democratic presidential candidates how they’d go about pressuring Israel to end the occupation. After IfNotNow activists asked Senator Elizabeth Warren about the issue this past July, DMFI put out a memo condemning the action and claiming that Warren had been the “victim of [a] hit-and-run.” The memo also contained sample, pro-Israel responses that it encouraged candidates to use if they happened to be confronted by IfNotNow members.

Burning trees and beating farmers: Israeli settlers wreak havoc on another olive harvest – Mondoweiss

Every year, without fail, Palestinians mark the beginning of autumn with the olive harvest. A sacred cultural event, families from across the country leave their towns and cities and head for their olive groves, passed down to them from the generations before.

It is unclear whether trial will proceed against just WBA.

Why the NordVPN network is safe after a third-party provider breach | NordVPN

To recap, in early 2018, one isolated datacenter in Finland was accessed without authorization. That was done by exploiting a vulnerability of one of our server providers that hadn’t been disclosed to us. No user credentials have been intercepted. No other server on our network has been affected. The affected server does not exist anymore and the contract with the server provider has been terminated.

  1. Even if at that time you were using that compromised server it’s nothing you should worry about… all the websites use https (your traffic is already encrypted and not visible neither by your ISP nor by VPN provider), so this ‘breach’ changes nothing…

    1. well, in full disclosure, they did mention a MiTM hack in the article, though they say it’s not trivial, and SSL/HTTPS can be MiTM’d also

      then there’s the whole thing of trusting the untrustable – a VPN
