Key Witness Admits Lying About Julian Assange, a Major Blow to U.S. Extradition Case, Yet Western Media Ignores This Development, by Ron Ridenour | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

This newest development probably increases the chance that fifty-year-old Assange dies of an unexpected heart attack or kills himself in prison in the near future. If he dies, expect no questions from the legacy media. From Ron Ridenour at

Former WikiLeaks volunteer, who became an FBI informant for $5,000, says he fabricated important parts of the accusations in the U.S. indictment.

Conclusive evidence: Julian Assange committed no crime of hacking or seeking access to telephone recordings of Icelandic MPs. This revelation comes from the witness who lied about that, in order to please the United States prosecution against the publisher in the extradition trial, in London, last summer. Key witness in Assange case admits to lies in indictment – Stundin

Sigurdur Ingi Thordarson, an Icelandic citizen and former WikiLeaks volunteer, who became an FBI informant for $5,000, told the Icelandic newspaper Stundin that he fabricated important parts of the accusations in the U.S. indictment. Thordarson also admits that he mispresented himself as an official representative of WikiLeaks, and that he stole documents from WikiLeaks staff by copying their hard drives.

Thordarson has a documented history with sociopathy and has several convictions for sexual abuse of minors and wide-ranging financial fraud. He admitted lying in the June 26 interview. He also confessed to having continued his crime spree whilst working with the Department of Justice and FBI and receiving a promise of immunity from prosecution.

U.S. officials presented a last minute updated version of an indictment against Assange to Magistrate Vanessa Baraitser. which included alleged “crimes” based on several lies that Thordarson fed them. While the magistrate rejected extradition on humanitarian grounds, due to Assange’s deteriorated health and the possibility of suicide, she supported all the prosecutions’ arguments that Assange had violated U.S. 1917 Espionage Act for which he could be sentenced up to 175 years by a U.S. special court. The U.S. District Court in Eastern District Virginia has never found innocent any accused violator of that act since the area is dominated by U.S. intelligence services’ employees who live there.

The Safest Way to Open a Can Without a Can Opener – The way I see things …

Comment by tonytran2015: It is very easy to use one hand to hold the can and the other to safely hold the sharp, strong tip of a HEAVY blade firmly against the puncture point on the top lid of the can. The sharp edge of the blade is kept safely away from both hands. Raise the whole configuration of can and blade upwards by one foot (30 cm), then lower it to the original position with some speed. The can will be stopped suddenly by the table top while the inertia of the blade will cause it to puncture the can.


H/T Mental Floss.

This is a useful hack to know if you do not have and need a can opener.

I was given a P-38 can opener fifty years ago that I still carry.

… you might find yourself eager to tuck into a can of baked beans, only to find that you have no way of actually breaching its thin metal lid.

But, as Country Living explains, the lid is much flimsier than most of the other metal utensils in your kitchen. And while you may be inclined to reach for the biggest, sharpest one—say, a butcher’s knife— to open the can, you can actually get the job done without stabbing it like a murderer in a hokey horror film

Your best bet is a spoon...
