News agencies around the world have claimed that the recent computer-virus outbreak known as Wanna Decryptor 2, or WannaCry, was designed and released by a DPRK-sponsored cyber-warfare team nicknamed Lazarus. The blatantly erroneous media claim are based on a single source: Simon Choi, a director of Seoul-based Hauri, the Seoul-based producer of computer-security software called the ViRobot. Hard evidence and background events show Lazarus to be a fictitious entity and part of a charade to shield the actual perpetrators of Wannacry and previous cyber-attacks including DarkSeoul and the strike against Sony Pictures Entertainment. The facts gathered thus far for this investigative report on the “Lazarus Deception” indicates that Hauri is a cyber-espionage group and propaganda voice for South Korea’s National Intelligence Agency (NIS, formerly known as the KCIA) and a vehicle for psychological operations (psyops) by that country’s Defense Ministry.

Government assisted killing of their own citizens for political purposes has become a common pattern. The media are getting ever bolder in disguising such events as ‘Terror’, spreading fear. The public swallows these lies again and again. British elections are planned for 8 June 2017. At the end of a pop concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester, an enormous ‘controlled’ explosion killed at least 22 people and injured 59, as reported by British media. Many of them are children and adolescents, as most of the concert-goers were young people. The singer is unharmed. The concert hall accommodates 21,000 people. After the blast, panic broke loose, resulting in a mass stampede. It is not clear whether people were also killed in the stampede.

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? Why? Which is the more likely scenario: That a frustrated employee leaked damaging emails to embarrass his bosses or a that foreign […]

Here’s what I saw unfold in the media during the 24 hours from Monday to Tuesday afternoon (May 15-16). On Monday, I saw blaring headlines throughout the day on Twitter about how Trump had betrayed some “highly-classified” intelligence secrets to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during their meeting last week. I was busy and paid […]

The deep state’s decision in ancient Rome—dominated by a bloated military and a corrupt oligarchy, much like the United States of 2017—to strangle the vain and idiotic Emperor Commodus in his bath in the year 192 did not halt the growing chaos and precipitous decline of the Roman Empire. Commodus, like a number of other […]

Former FBI agent and 9/11 whistleblower Coleen Rowley says former FBI head Robert Mueller, now appointed to investigate the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, participated in covering up the pre 9/11 role of the U.S. intelligence agencies and the Bush Administration, helped create the post 9/11 national security/surveillance state, and helped facilitate the pre-Iraq war propaganda machine PAUL JAY: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Paul Jay. On Wednesday afternoon, Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert S. Mueller to be a special counsel to investigate the Russia affair, those, not his words, those are mine, to look into the whole issue of alleged Russia interference in the American elections, and that would also, one think, include a look into what happened with James Comey, and James Comey’s firing, and his memo and such. So just who is Robert Mueller?

Thursday late night,18 May 2017, the Greek Parliament voted to accept another round of devastating troika (EC, IMF, ECB) conditions for an additional debt package of close to 5 billion euros. All of the 153 delegates of Alexis Tsipras’ Syriza-Anel coalition voted ‘en bloc’ for the suicide package, all 128 opposition members against. Nineteen didn’t […]

Recently a lot has and is being written on all possible ways of development of the situation with North Korea, specially after the victory of a new “oppositional” president of the Republic of Korea. The emphasis is made on the idea of an unprecedented military crisis in the Korean peninsula starting from an American preventive […]

An expert on plutonium science and a professor at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, Hecker is also a former director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Here he answers questions on Pyongyang’s […]

Continuing the probe into the Wanna Decryptor outbreak, during which that worm paralyzed nearly a quarter million computers worldwide, this second article retraces the hijacking of the EternalBlue exploit (which is vulnerable to WannCry) from the NSA’s vault of cyber-weapons by the team called the Shadow Breakers, who issued repeated warnings about the flaw in older Microsoft systems In a recent post, the Shadow Breakers explain that they had issued monthly warnings about the EternalBlue problem starting in February, giving Microsoft sufficient time to create a temporary fix, or “patch”. Despite being informed that the EternalBlue fault inside the Server Message Block (SMB) had been further expanded by the NSA, the software giant withheld the defensive patch from public release for months. Microsoft did not issue a patch or even a warning for XP and older systems until the WannaCry contagion was well underway, resulting in a shutdown of services at 40 hospitals of the British National Health Service (NHS).

The latest test of a far-reaching ballistic missile by North Korea came only days after South Korea’s new president Moon Jae-in was inaugurated, saying that he was prepared to engage in diplomatic talks with his northern neighbor. The missile test, which reportedly proves the North has achieved ballistic capability to launch a weapon strike on […]

Here we have a scoop hitting the mainstream media headlines to eclipse China’s One Belt, One Road summit, the Macron’s inauguration, Syria, never ending North Korea’s missile launches and the Turkish President Erdogan’s visit to Washington. US President Donald Trump is at the centre of a storm. The saga of the alleged Russian connection to Trump’s campaign is once again dominating the news. This time hue and cry was raised over President Trump allegedly revealing top secret/codeword information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting, a day after FBI chief James Comey was fired. The FBI director’s sudden dismissal unleashed reprimands from across the political spectrum, and the report once again quickly drew sharp criticism of the president. Current and former US officials say the divulgence jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State (IS) group.

(Click on the picture for a much larger, expanded and clearer size) Much outrage has been expressed in recent weeks over President Donald Trump’s invitation for a White House visit to Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines, whose “war on drugs” has led to thousands of extrajudicial killings. Criticism of Trump was especially intense given […]

There is no such thing as cyber security. The only choice is more security or less security, as the recent hack of the National Security Agency demonstrates. Hackers stole from NSA a cyber weapon, which has been used in attacks (at time of writing) on 150 countries, shutting down elements of the British National Health […]

This article was originally posted on the RT. In an extraordinary moment this week, Russian leader Vladimir Putin offered Washington a challenge to discover the truth over sensational US media claims that President Trump had leaked top-secret information to Russia. Washington rebuffed Putin’s offer. It was akin to the iconic scene in the sci-fi movie, […]

Ever since Chelsea Manning was revealed as the whistleblower responsible for one of the most important journalistic archives in history, her heroism has been manifest. She was the classic leaker of conscience, someone who went at the age of 20 to fight in the Iraq War believing it was noble, only to discover the dark […]
