The Artistic Whistleblower

Epstein Victim Says: Trump, Clintons, Dershowitz And Rothschilds Were All Involved In Sexual Offences Against Minors And That Ghislaine Maxwell Has Threatened With Links To The Rothschild Family And Secret Service Agencies. She claims there were “thousands” of victims (5 girls a day).

Maria Farmer, a victim of sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein, has revealed the string of high-profile politicians and influential figures that were frequently seen at the Epstein mansion, where a long-running string of sexual offences is believed to have taken place. People involved included, US President Donald Trump, Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz and both Bill and Hillary Clinton.

This article is mainly taken from here. This article has links to the interviews with Maria Farmer and references the Netflix documentary where she also tells her story.

Farmer also claims that Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s girlfriend and alleged accomplice, who is in prison awaiting trial, threatened her by saying that she was protected by the Rothschild family and Israeli secret service agents. She then went on to say that she had received death threats warning her against speaking out against Epstein and Maxwell.

Farmer brought her story regarding Epstein and Maxwell to the attention of the FBI in 1996, though the case was, according to Netflix documentary ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’, not properly followed up. Epstein was later convicted of sex crimes in the mid-2000s, for which he received a short prison sentence. In 2019 he was then arrested on charges of sex trafficking underage girls and allegedly took his own life in prison before justice was served. Widespread rumours have circulated that Epstein was in fact murdered in order to cover up the involvement of powerful people who used his sex-trafficking ring.

Jeffrey Epstein was an investment billionaire while alleged accomplice Maxwell is the daughter of former British Member of Parliament and media mogul, Robert Maxwell, who died mysteriously on his yacht in 1991 while under investigation for embezzling a pension fund. Farmer reports Ghislaine Maxwell knew Prince Andrew way before their official statements including Maxwell knew Sarah Ferguson before she married Andrew.

Farmer gave the interview in which she made the allegations to journalist Whitney Webb, in which she appeared to imply that her initial allegations were not taken seriously because she named all of the influential people she believed had conspired with Epstein. She said:

“The worst part was I named everyone. I named everyone who I thought was a co-conspirator at the time. So I named Alan Dershowitz, Donald Trump, absolutely the Clintons. These were people that I saw coming and going, that I knew were a part of it. I made it really clear that this was a very scary thing for children and I see between 5-10 girls a day going upstairs.”

“She says to me, my dad was a very powerful man. She had a French passport, English passport, Israeli passport, and an American passport … Later when she was talking to me she says, the Rothschilds were the greatest protector of her family.”

Farmer’s 15-year-old sister is also believed to have suffered abuse at the hands of Epstein and Maxwell. Some now believe that as Maxwell awaits trial, she will cooperate with authorities in order to receive a lighter sentence, and could, in fact, name the full list of powerful individuals involved in the sex trafficking ring. Thereby, brining a whole house of cards down upon a shady elite.

Farmer refers to Wexner and Dershowitz

Wexner

Leslie Herbert Wexner (born September 8, 1937) is an American billionaire businessman, the founder and chairman emeritus of L Brands, starting as an exclusive clothing retailer and expanded to include Victoria’s Secret, Abercrombie and Fitch, Express, and Bath & Body Works. Wexner stepped down as CEO of L Brands in February 2020.

Wexner had a close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein that began in the 1980s and continued until at least 2007. He was the primary billionaire client of Epstein since1987. In 1991, Wexner granted Epstein power of attorney and had instated him as a trustee on the board of the Wexner Foundation.

Wexner has been accused of failing to take action when complaints were raised against Epstein, including after executives of L Brands reported (in the mid-1990s) that Epstein was abusing his power and connection to Wexner by posing as a recruiter of Victoria’s Secret models. The artist Maria Farmer contacted local and federal authorities about an assault she endured by Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell while working as an artist-in-residence on Wexner’s Ohio property in 1996. Within a year of Farmer’s complaint, the actress Alicia Arden filed a police report in Los Angeles detailing that Epstein had misrepresented himself as a recruiter for Victoria’s Secret prior to another alleged assault.

In early 2006, Epstein was charged in Florida with “multiple counts of molestation and unlawful sexual activity with a minor.” The New York Times reported that it was 18 months after the charges were raised that Wexner cut his ties to Epstein.

In August 2019, following Epstein’s second incarceration and prior to his death, Wexner addressed the Wexner Foundation in writing, releasing a statement that his former financial advisor, Jeffrey Epstein, had “misappropriated vast sums of money” from him and from his family.

Farmer suggests that Wexner was gay. He was certainly under Epstein’s control.

Deshowitz

His wikipedia entry is here. He seems to be plugged into every high profile court case since the 1980s including OJ Simpson and defense of torture in Iraq. Dershowitz was a member of the legal defense team for Jeffrey Epstein, who was investigated following accusations that he had repeatedly solicited sex from minors. Dershowitz had previously befriended Epstein through their mutual acquaintance Lynn Forester de Rothschild.

The investigation into Epstein concluded with a controversial non-prosecution agreement which Dershowitz helped negotiate on Epstein’s behalf.On June 30, 2008, after Epstein pleaded guilty to a state charge (one of two) of procuring for prostitution a girl below age 18. Thanks to this arrangement, Epstein was sentenced to (just) 18 months in prison.

Lock Down? Not so bad (for the rich)

Just to reiterate.

The Government Policy is biased and favours the wealthy. Millionaire MP Jeremy Hunt muses that the lock down “wasn’t all bad” (see picture)… forgetting his role in decimating NHS and Social Services while he was Health Minister and ignoring the results of pandemic simulations and rehearsals.

  • The UK has suffered from one of the worst death rates globally with nearly 45,000 victims…
  • Hundreds of thousands losing their jobs with dreadful unemployment figures…
  • Tens of thousands of businesses will never reopen…
  • Untold Mental Health problems, domestic abuse, impact on children…

Many Ordinary People are suffering badly…

Electoral Commission admits digital politics is a problem

The Electoral Commission has printed a report on the December General Election. It can be found here. (exact date of the report is not mentioned but is sometime in June). It is similar to the report given earlier. Election financial information is posted here but with no information on computer system costs.

The following are quotes from the report:

The election was generally well-run, but there is new evidence showing challenges for the future

The 2019 UK Parliamentary general election was held on Thursday 12 December. More than 40 million people were registered to vote, and the turnout of registered voters was 67%. There were high levels of satisfaction with the processes of registering to vote and voting. These were similar to other recent elections in the UK.

Beneath this generally positive picture, however, we have also seen evidence about concerns and problems at this election. Some people did not receive the service they should be able to expect, and many were not confident that the election was well run.

https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/who-we-are-and-what-we-do/elections-and-referendums/past-elections-and-referendums/uk-general-elections/report-overview-2019-uk-parliamentary-general-election

The concerns were as follows:

  • Misleading campaign techniques risk undermining voters’ trust
  • The rules for campaigners need modernising for the digital age
  • Tackling intimidation of candidates requires a holistic approach
  • Steps taken to secure the democratic processes must continue

These are quotes from the report:

People were concerned about misleading campaign techniques from across the political spectrum, and bias in the media. We received a large number of complaints raising concerns about the presentation, tone and content of election campaigns
Transparency about who is behind political campaigns online at elections is important for people in the UK. In our research after the election, nearly three quarters of people agreed that it was important for them to know who produced the political information they see online, but less than a third agreed that they can find out who has produced it

The UK Government and other bodies monitored digital campaigning during the election period for risks to democratic processes from foreign interference and organised disinformation. The UK Government has said that work to examine these aspects after the election is ongoing

The UK Government should also set out plans to modernise the rules for campaigners to keep pace with the digital age. The law should tell campaigners and digital platforms the amount and type of information they need to give to voters, the media, other campaigners and regulators, including to us.

At this election, Facebook, Google and Snapchat published libraries and reports of the political advertising run on their platforms and channels during the election. They also required political advertisers to put ‘Paid for by’ disclaimers on their political adverts.

These measures are a step in the right direction and they enabled us to see who is paying to place adverts. But they still don’t provide enough information about digital campaigning.

Quite a few problems here…

Whilst admitting a problem, the EC did not have any solution. Plus they are gaslighting you. Gaslighting by ommission. The EC report did not admit the full scope of the problem which have been known about since at least EU Referendum and 2016 Presidential Elections. We know this because Elizabeth Denham, the UK ICO Commissioner (that regulates data privacy) announced the problem with social media and data analytics in 2018!

Fact 1: The fact that the electoral registration system is broken. Local Council election management systems are out of date. Central Government systems (and no doubt Dominic Cummings’ Voter Intention Collection System) has far better demographic systems which could automatically update electoral rolls.

Fact 2: The EC do not even admit that the social media platforms collect “pyschographic” information – a more likely barometer of voter intentions than any sample survey. The EC is out of touch with the digital world. While the ICO recognises the problem (in part), they have no teeth to do anything about it.

Fact 3: The EC do not mention the true level of postal vote problem – only that there was some confusion. When some people apparently tried to register three times or so, and late into the election process, this is a warning that voter fraud is being undertaken! (The process is described here).

Fact 4: But worst of all is the online manipulation of voters and even mainstream media by fake news spread by bots and sockpuppets (fake accounts). This is not just a vague Trump-style throw away… but it was specifcally recorded, tracked and documented… even by the BBC! This event alone demonstrates the vast power that computers and automation (weilded by the Tories) can do to twart the democratic process. This issue is not addressed either by the EC or ICO.

I’ll leave the conclusion of this article as as a quote

“The invisible, ‘behind the scenes’ use of personal data to target political messages to individuals must be transparent and lawful if we are to preserve the integrity of our election process.”

Elizabeth Denham, the UK ICO Commissioner November 2018

Release the Russia Report

The wife of a former Putin ally has donated £325,000 to Boris Johnson’s Conservatives as he continues to sit on a report into Russian interference, reports Business Insider.

  • The wife of a former minister in Putin’s government has become the biggest ever female donor to a political party in the UK.
  • Lubov Chernukhin, who is married to ex-Russian finance minister Vladimir Chernukhin, gave £325,000 to the party in the first quarter of 2020.
  • This reportedly included £45,000 for a game of tennis with Boris Johnson.
  • Johnson is under pressure to release a report into Russian interference that was completed in October 2019.
  • A Conservative party spokesperson said all donations are “properly and transparently declared” and “comply fully with the law.”

No-one is chasing this, the Acuri Scandal is dismissed or the 80 seat majority won by election fraud.

PRRA – Covid-19 is manmade

Following from the previous post about Covid-19 Source Theories which concluded that in all probability that the virus was deliberately released to suit a billionaire agenda is the discussion of whether the virus came from bats with a natural genetic mutation or was deliberately man-made.

So quick lession in genetics… you can identify whether a genetic change is a natural mutation or “spliced”. See diagram. Natural mutations do not suddenly appear in the gene sequence in the perfect arrangement for maximum damage. (By the way, these slides have been adapted from Chris Martenson’s analysis of published material on the Covid-19 virsus. The full video is given below).

This is what we see with Covid-19 (in picture refered to as “SARS-CoV-2”). The insert of sequence “PRRA”. This isn’t a natural mutation but a splice into an “unused slot” within the gene sequence.

This isn’t just a random set of changes but very specific, very deadly changes. This PRRA sequence is known to be responsible for “furin cleveage” – this allows the virus to cut through lung tissue to causes maximum damage to humans. It is common in other deadly viruses. But these viruses with PRRA are not airborne; the propety of airborne transmittabilily is associated with cold viruses in the SAR group. See the diagram showing the family tree of related viruses: Covid-19 is a complete “outlier” in this respect; being both deadly and airbourne. It is some distance away from Bat-Covid

The conclusion is that a) virologists are lying to us b) Covid-19 is man-made.

There is much more detail in this video, describing the history of virus splicing including who was doing it and who is now saying “oh this is not man-made” (Indeed, the same people).

Full Video

There is no likelihood of highly transmittable, deadly virus turning up “naturally” within a short distance of Biological Weapons establishment especially when considering the virus has all the hallmarks of being man-made. So was there an accidental leak or deliberate release? Many people take the view that nobody would be so stupid to put covid-19 into the world deliberately. Unfortunately the gaslighting, the suppression of debate, the deliberate lying, the public should NOT be giving the US/UK Muppet Governments the benefit of doubt but assume the worst of worst; that a) the virus is man-made and honed to be deadly and b) it was released deliberately to meet billionaire and eugenic goals.

Obviously these are rather stark conclusions, no doubt many will label this article “Conspiracy Theory”. Rational arguments against these conclusions are welcome. But only if they are “rational”.

June Gaslight

Ripped off from Facebook with Gaslighting Adjustments…

The odd nugget of journalistic genius and wisdom whereby Jeremy Corbyn is blamed for the loss of the election needs to be addressed. This is an attempt at covering-up the widespread PysOp against Corbyn. That’s why people supposedly “didn’t like him.”

The fact that he behaved less ruthlessly than your average politician DID NOT lose him the election at all. If it wasn’t for the illegal rigging of the result he won fair and square. The #antisemitism lies and #propaganda weren’t enough to do the hatchet job on their own. That’s why the Russian interference documents will never be published. Any document that goes anywhere near it will be swamped with redaction lines. This government is corrupt. Observe how the #jobsfortheboys #nepotism is ever present.

Look at the huge areas of gaslighting currently happening in June 2020:

  • Continuing destruction of the environment and health standards. While eyes are on #COVID19 they are dismantling and overwriting all sorts of things such as food labelling and standards to allow the introduction of GMO foods, hormone injected beef and cholrinated chicken… or restarting fracking… or starting the planning process for a SECOND new Nuclear power station. HS2, the whitest elephant in the room, blunders on. We need rail investment, but honestly, it would be cheaper to build a tunnel from London to Birmingham than this nature-blighting, vanity project.
  • Human rights. The small print accompanying everything they do, but we, me, you, everyone, are not informed of the really awful bits. If you dig you’ll find them. Our rights are being eroded by the day, just play around with searches and you’ll find all sorts. #powergrabs
  • Funding for Overseas Aid will go, that was announced this week. Thinly veiled statements of intent to reduce funding for countries with black citizens in favour of white populations. So much for #blacklivesmatter
  • In your face embarassment. A £million for a paint job on an aeroplane for Presidential-style jaunts. Peanut money, I guess, but its return will be increasing British embarassment every time BJ steps out of it.
  • The Rich Getting Away With It. Prince Andrew will see no force applied for him to face old murdered Epstein’s antics. The rich are on holiday… A new royal yacht. Shame about the poor people.
  • Expect Austerity Measures. Austerity is no more a useful or necessary strategy than it ever was. #austerity #unnecessary What we need is a Jobs Guarentee, Modern Monetary Theory and a Green New Deal – the right wing agenda in UK and USA is unlikely to deliver us any change to the current capitalist foot stamping on the face of humanity. Triple lock on pensions is to go. They could also tax the rich! But they won’t of course.
  • The constant lies from the UK government! Lies about COVID death numbers, for instance. The total is at least 20,000 more than the “official” toll. Withholding the newer, higher R number. None of the “5 rules” satisfied. #science A 2nd wave of COVID19 is surely unavoidable; though they try to mould every detail on briefings to sound like all the stupid measures they’re about to take aren’t going to kill lots of people. They stopped “following the science” months ago but they lie about it. They blame Apple for the flop of the contact tracing app but that’s a lie too, they never even spoke to them. Hancock just stood there lying into the camera, not realising that Apple may be able to hear him. #idiot #liar
  • Brexit Disaster Imminent. A worldwide pandemic isn’t important enough to slow that runaway train down! Pile that on top of the #pandemic and see what a catastrophe we’ve got on our hands. A brilliant legacy for our kids and grandkids. All the Brexiteers will be dead, they won’t be the ones to feel the pain.
  • An Un-United Kingdom. #Scotland is likely to not only go Independent but rebuild Hadrian’s Wall!
  • No change in the mainstream media propaganda machine which includes not only the right-wing, billionaire-backed newspapers but also the BBC, all TV, all Hollywood output. Even social media platforms! It is all Gaslighting. If it was just shades of opinion it wouldn’t be so bad. But no the real facts are not even being discussed. Meanwhile, Julian Assange is slowly but surely dying, again where’s the media coverage and outrage? Another hero that should be celebrated, but he’ll die instead. He has committed no crime (that he hasn’t paid for) Unless you say publishing factually correct information on war crimes, a crime. #wikileaks

Welcome to the Brave New 1984 World Order.

Covid-19: Competing Theories

As we come to work out how to get out of the death spiral assoctaed with the lock-down in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have to consider how we have got into this state and “what can we blame”…

Theories

This examines the competing theories to see if any

1. Natural Occurance – World Slow to Respond3. Made-it Happen – China to Blame
2. Natural Occurance – China as source and kept it quiet4. Made-it Happen – USA to Blame
Competing Theories for Covid-19 Pandemic

Theory 1

1. Natural Occurance – World Slow to RespondProCon
The science proves it is a natural virusScientists says the virus was natural and come from bats.Virulent virus – highly transmittable – never been seen before, just happens to come from city with a biological weapons establishment.
The MSM would tell the truthMainstream media narrative consistentMainstream media just reporting politician statements, owned by billionaires and not doing investigative reporting or holding government to account.
It is unexpectedNo-one would expect such a large scale pandemic and so unprepared for such an event.A Pandemic has been the number 1 risk in National Risk Registers for decades. There are many rehearsals and scenario planning for this event. The last one in UK was 2017 which identified the issue of lack of ventilators, ICU beds and PPE.
Our politicians are incompentant and corruptDifficulties in sourcing ventilators, PPE, testing kits. “Emails being lost in spam folder”. USA and UK seem in lock step in their levels of incompetance. Companies that are rewarded are either “cheap” and don’t conform to specification or from Tory Party donors.
Any talk that this is anything other than natural is a “Conspiracy Theory”As discussed here. “unlike most conspiracy theories, medical ones can have deadly consequences.”Making the subject taboo in the MSM makes rational discussion almost impossible.
Pros and Cons of Theory Number 1 Natural Occurance

Theory Number 1 is mainstream. It’s just a giant coincidence…

Theory 2

Natural Occurance – China as source and kept it quietProCon
It’s a naturally occuring virus but the Chinese covered up the extent on the problem.Whistleblowers were surpressed. No they weren’t.
Donald Trump said China was to blameChina surpressed newsChina identified Covid-19 “in the city of Wuhan” only in December 2019.
Pros and Cons of Theory Number 2 Natural Occurance – China as source and kept it quiet

Theory Number 2 is just a push towards Theory Number 3, trying to push the blame onto China.

Theory 3

Made-it Happen – China to BlameProCon
Virulent virus comes from city with a biological weapons establishment.Scientists from the P-4 Lab have worked on SARS and COVID like viruses since 2015 collaborating with USA.Coincidence that this highly transmitable virus has only decide to transmit at this time at a location that has a biological weapons establishment.
China’s main site of biological weapons is in Wuhan. Covid-19 could have leaked out.The worked was acknowledged as being risky. Fears of leaks from US Fort Detrick have happened as recently as Summer 2019. Virus researchers claim that lab procedures were tight and a lab leak couldn’t happen.
China wanted to surpress riots in Hong Kong.Riots stopped because of medical emergency.If it was premeditated why was the virus ground zero in Wuhan (central China) rather than an area closer to Hong Kong?
Donald Trump said China was to blamePresident of the USA had INTEL that China was to blame.Trump is a racist, point scoring, idiot in an election year.
Pros and Cons of Theory Number 3 Made-it Happen – China to Blame

Theory Number 3 arises because of the location of the P-4 Lab. So many people believe there was a leak from the Lab that this theory is mainstream: the Chinese are to blame but it was not pre-meditated.

Theory 4

Made-it-Happen – USA to blameProCon
Alleged by China that first cases of Covid-19 recorded in old age facility close to Fort Detrrick, the US Labs responsible for Biological Weapons.News story hereThis maybe some other disease.
Fort Detrick’s viral lab was closed down in August 2019 by CDC because of a leak (and various deficiencies).News story here. Note that Fort Detrick was also the source of the Anthrax that was distributed across USA after 9/11.Coincidence.
Pandemic rehearsal in September 2020News story here. Bill Gates has a specific agenda.Coincidence. There are many such rehearsals. Bill Gates is a philanthropist.
Alleged by China: US Troops brought Covid-19 to the Military Games staged in Wuhan in October 2019News story here.
• The American Military Games team trained at a location near Fort Detrick.
• The 300-strong US contingent to the Military Games stayed at the Wuhan Oriental Hotel, 300 meters from the Huanan Seafood Market where China’s outbreak began .
• 42 employees of the Oriental Hotel were diagnosed with COVID-19, becoming the first cluster in Wuhan. At the time only 7 people from the market had been thus diagnosed (and treated before the hotel staff). All 7 had contact with the 42 from the hotel. From this source, the virus spread to the rest of China.
• Five of the US troops developed a fever on Oct. 25 and were taken to an infectious-diseases hospital for treatment.
• Pompeo wanted the Chinese not to publicize what they had found.
• The Chinese point out that the US medal tally at the games was so low that the team selected for the games had an agenda other than athelitics.
Chinese propaganda.
If the USA is to blame then there must have been an agenda! Support for a billionaire’s agenda:
Billionaire’s getting rich from Covid-19
• Supporting a Eugenics agenda and reducing world’s population
Disaster capitalism
• Excellent timing of outbreak with relationalship to UK GE2019 (Won on two slogans: “Get Brexit Done” and “our wonderful NHS”)
• Excellent timing to hide No Deal Brexit, the non-publication of the Russia Report and Acuri Scandal.
• Excellent timing to hide any further Epstien revelations (and his relationships to Prince Andrew, Clintons, Blair and… Bill Gates (even after Epstien was in Jail) and Donald Trump!)
It’s not helping Trump!
Pros and Cons of Theory Number 4 Made-it Happen – USA to Blame

But That Means…

Surely Theory 4 is just too bizarre? If the USA were to blame they deliberately set out with pre-meditation to release Covid-19 on the world knowing that it would kill the old, poor, overweight and BAME… Well for that to happen they would have to have a good cover story… like being able to blame it on China… and extreme media coverage to make sure that the story stuck. It would mean that they would have to a huge and concerted military style pyschological operations. A giant PysOp!

It would also mean access to huge amount of data! Not to determine health outcomes but whether their PysOp was working! The data behind the COVID-19 pandemic was never reliable, with test kits being inaccurate, government policies inflating the death counts, and the media focusing solely on fear-based predictions that are repeatedly proven false. Indeed, there are scientists and government leaders from other countries, including Russia, Germany and Denmark, speaking out about how the coronavirus threat may have been exaggerated.

Who Benefits?

As reported in the Daily Gaslamp, the outcomes of the coronavirus scare have included huge windfalls for billionaires, financial institutions, and corporations. Legislation being passed in response to COVID-19 is largely beneficial to corporate interests. The outcomes for everyone else have been fear, unemployment, poverty, loss of freedoms, grave risks to democracy, and death.

The Covid Event closely follows plans disclosed 15 years ago by Strategic Communications Laboratories SCL which nominally closed down after the Cambridge Analytica scandal in 2018. SCL’s key associates include Nigel Oakes, Mark Broughton and the Behavioral Dynamics Institute, a virtual lab led by Professor Phil Taylor of Leeds University. The techniques include manipulating people to demand the new restrictions rather than simply forcing the laws upon us.

But you cannot help but conclude:

  • the people and agencies driving the coronavirus scare have a history of unethical behaviors, including hyping pandemics to push vaccines and other drugs;
  • appear to seek long-term profits through implementation of a highly controlled society
  • Eugenics-like behaviours…

Therefore, the response to COVID-19, not the virus itself, can be seen to be the problem. The virus had been deliberately selected, refined, tested and released… all for a eugenics based agenda and for profit. And the implications that it was released when it was is also important and no longer coincidental: the timing has been perfect for UK and USA regarding the elections and for Brexit…

And for this argument to be fully explored… I suggest the following parts 1, 2, 3 and (the best) part 4:

Review and Consider

One Rule for the Rich

… is to get rich quick.

Following on from Dominic Cummings blatant disregard for the lockdown rules imposed by this Tory Government that he engineered a fraudlent win last December, it has emerged from the Bureau of Investigation conflicts of interest between Cummings and the AI Health firms receiving government cash.

It reports

Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson’s most senior aide, is facing conflict of interest accusations over a publicly undisclosed consultancy job at a healthcare start-up endorsed by the government and in pole position to receive cash from a £250m NHS fund.

Cummings advised Babylon Health, a controversial AI start-up, on its communications strategy and senior recruitment just months before its “GP at Hand” app was publicly backed by Matt Hancock, the health secretary…

“The links between Dominic Cummings in the heart of Downing Street, the health secretary and this AI health firm are increasingly murky and highly irresponsible,” the shadow health secretary, Jonathan Ashworth, said. “Mr Cummings’ work for this company raises serious questions about a potential conflict of interest given the firm could be in line to receive public money from this new £250m AI fund… Cummings should come clean on any other consultancy work he did before entering Downing Street so the public can have confidence that there are no other conflict of interest issues at play.”

Babylon confirmed Cummings was paid via his company, Dynamic Maps Ltd, which he set up in October 2017 as the sole director…

Babylon had been repeatedly boosted by Matt Hancock, who even promised to help change rules to benefit the company. At his visit to the company in September 2018, soon after his appointment as health secretary, he told staff how much he admired their work.

Bureau of Investigation

Big Data and Privacy Concerns

Under a recent relaxation of data-sharing restrictions, private companies can now be granted access to NHS patient data for valid Covid-19 purposes.

One company to note is Palantir. It has been accused of having its data-mining technology used for questionable purposes. Examples include a system used by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement to separate immigrant families and the use of its software in predictive policing tools by the Los Angeles Police Department. In 2018, Palantir admitted that an employee had helped Cambridge Analytica build its data-harvesting app in 2013-14…

Previously confidential NHS data could not be put under the control of anyone who was not a healthcare professional without a legal basis.

Doubts are growing about what happens once the coronavirus crisis is over. One insider told the Bureau: “I can understand why they are using Palantir, it has incredible software.” But they said they were concerned that the company was not known for being the most open and added: “I’d like to see it build a parallel system – so [the Palantir system] can get switched off when it is not needed anymore.”

Natalie Banner, lead on the Understanding Patient Data programme at the medical research charity Wellcome, said that the public do not object to private companies working with the health service as long as benefits to patients and the NHS are clearly prioritised. “The NHS can benefit from the capacity and technical expertise of technology companies, for example to build the data store,” she said.

Crucially, technology companies that work with the NHS during this crisis will develop a better understanding of the UK’s health data infrastructure, “which could give them an advantage in future discussions about providing services to the NHS”.

Rachel Coldicutt, former chief executive of the technology ethics think tank Doteveryone, said that: “Public services, funded by public money, must be open to public scrutiny – especially in times of great upheaval when lots of decisions are being made very quickly.

“Publishing the specification that Palantir is working to and appointing an emergency governance committee to give external oversight would help maintain trust in this volatile period.”

According to Wired, some 40 tech companies were present at a meeting with No 10 advisor Dominic Cummings in Downing Street on 12 March. Among their ranks were said to be several who have got the Covid-related health contracts, as well as the AI start-up Babylon Health.

Covid-19

This TDG article considers the different theories for the sources of Covid-19 and comes up with a startling conclusion and taps into work that others have been working upon, including compelling analysis that Covid-19 is manmade!

About this site

This site was set up in the wake of the strange Tory victory in the 2019 General Election. Strange because it was won by the Tories by the precise margin predicted by Dominic Cummings – 80 seats – and confounding all other polls. See this post.

What magic was Dominic Cummings using? IT magic! Used in conjunction with standard methods of commercial marketting and Pyschological Operations. The novel use of technology to infulence elections was invented by Cambridge Analytic and has been proven worldwide…

The impact on Democracy of the use of Big Data – the combination of demographic data, pychographic data and social media – is described in the Daily Gaslamp’s first animated movie.

A collection of the evidence for the GE2019 Fraud is given here. Postal vote fraud is nothing new to UK politics as evidence here. The government itself admits the “system is under strain” – even without considering the impact of technology (particularly the use of bots, AI and Big Data).

What have they done?

Since January, the UK Prime Minister has busily been avoiding taking responsibility for anything…

Response by Election Commission and Infromation Commissioner Office is given here. They both admit to problems with “social media” and data analytics but have no solutions.

Gaslighting – there is nothing to see… 😉

The Dog That Doesn’t Hunt

You have to make your own mind on this but it does look like the IOPC is like the Dog That Doesn’t Hunt… The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) examined the prime minister’s dealings with businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri, and whether her company benefited financially from their relationship but…

“Evidence required to establish whether Boris Johnson may have committed misconduct in public office had been deleted. The material stored in digital devices, email accounts and computer drives belonging to the mayor and his appointees was deleted when he left office in 2016.”

IOPC Report 2020

Notice the lack of mention of reviewing data on servers, archives or back-ups, which is where you’d expect to find the evidence.

“The requirement in the Greater London Authority (GLA) Records Management Guidance for any material concerning GLA business (which includes sponsorship and trade missions) to be transferred to executive officers prior to deletion appears not to have been followed.”

IOPC Report 2020

The report said there was

  • no record of the rationale for accepting Ms Arcuri’s attendance on trade missions
  • or sponsorship of applications for grants
  • or the decision to pay her lnnotech company almost £24,000.

Note that elsewhere the figures being discussed are much higher.

“Mr Johnson’s solicitors have said he has no relevant documents in his custody or control, and Ms Arcuri has said that she deleted any relevant email correspondence…” and the failure to ensure GLA records were secured… “may have prevented the review from reviewing relevant evidence”.

IOPC Report 2020

The GLA stated that email and computer drives of departing staff, including a mayor and their appointees, are “promptly deleted” as a matter of course, and that mobile phones and laptops are returned and wiped for re-use. [TDG: again no mention of servers, back-ups or archives]

The GLA’s own guidance says departing mayors should arrange for records to be preserved but “there is no evidence that Mr Johnson and his outgoing appointees transferred any records to executive officers at the end of the mayoral term in 2016, nor that they were reminded of their obligation to do so before they left”.

The IOPC called for the “matter of concern” to be addressed with a full audit of the GLA’s information retention policies. (TDG: In other words, the GLA had already wiped and shredded everything of any importance because of the l-o-n-g process of alerting them to the fact that the investigation was going to happen.)

The IOPC reported “months of efforts” to access evidence but concluded that there were no further “reasonable and proportionate steps that can be taken by this review or by any future criminal investigations which could result in the recovery of more material”.

The IOPC concluded that there was only evidence supporting reasonable suspicion that Mr Johnson committed misconduct in public office in relation to one of six allegations. That related to a 2015 trade mission in New York, where Ms Arcuri was permitted to attend despite the fact her company was not eligible to participate. The report said it “occurred after the time when we have evidence suggesting that there may have been an intimate/sexual relationship between Ms Arcuri and Mr Johnson”. A letter from Mr Johnson’s solicitor said: “If and when Ms Arcuri did attend any such events, our client was not previously expecting her to attend.”

After conducting interviews, taking statements and reviewing more than 900 documents reviewed, including eight years of relevant emails from other sources, the IOPC concluded that a criminal investigation could not be launched.

“For Mr Johnson to have committed an offence of misconduct in public office, there must be evidence either that he wilfully misconducted himself or that he wilfully neglected his public duties,” it added.

Trying to find another methaphor for “the Dog That Doesn’t Hunt”, this was the result: the term is modelled on the 17th-18th century phrase “that cock won’t fight”. In the days of cock-fighting, a cock that wouldn’t fight when out into the pit and so a natural metaphor for a plan that wouldn’t work. And indeed, Johnson may not have got his “leg over”… but, it does look the IOPC has just generated a lot of work with no intention of uncovering any misconduct. Both have indicated that there was a “relationship” and Arcuri milked it for all it was worth – she cannot be blamed for that – but see her videos on youtube – her technical prowess is not high despite her bravado. Whether there was sex there is, in any case, irrelevant (although it seems highly likely), Johnson should not use his public office to grant her favours AND THERE IS EVIDENCE HE DID THAT!

The only way to really decide his guilt would be in court. But this will not happen. The establishment will not be sending the Prime Minister to trial. Meanwhile, has anyone seen the Russia Report?
