5 Whistleblowers Who Died Mysteriously

In the wake of the death on Wednesday of Iraq War veteran and computer security expert James Dolan, Sputnik decided to recall other whistleblowers that have passed away under rather vague circumstances.


1. James Dolan was a co-creator of the whistleblower submission system SecureDrop along with Aaron Swartz, who killed himself in 2013 following prosecution for an alleged criminal hacking incident. 36-year-old Dolan, who reportedly also took his own life, joined the Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) after Swartz’s death. The circumstances of Dolan’s death are yet unknown, however the FPF reported that he had been suffering from PTSD since the Iraq War.

2. Serena Shim, a promising journalist working for Iran’s Press TV media outlet, was killed in a “suspicious” car crash in Turkey just days after she gathered information on Turkish support for Daesh (ISIS), claiming they were helping the terrorists commit heinous crimes. In 2014, Shim reported that she received explicit threats from Turkish intelligence services, and died a few days after confessing on camera that she was afraid of being arrested for “espionage.” Press TV has refused to consider her death an accident.

3. Michael Ruppert, former Los Angeles police officer, went public as a whistleblower when he exposed corruption within the police department and the CIA. He was found dead in 2014, reportedly dying from a gunshot wound, and was deemed a suicide. While he left a recorded suicide message, saying that he took his life so that the CIA couldn’t murder him, some still believe that he was actually killed.

4. In 2017, the German news journalist Dr. Udo Ulfkotte was found dead, ten months after he exposed collusion between the CIA and German Intelligence. Ulfkotte alleged that the intelligence agencies bribe journalists into writing pro-NATO articles. In his book, entitled “Bought Journalists,” Ulfkotte reveals the details of the US and NATO propaganda machine, claiming that those who refused to work for them could consider their careers ruined. He said most media journalists in the US and Europe were “so-called non-official cover,” implying that they worked for an intelligence agency. Among the fake news stories Ulfkotte claims the CIA ordered him to publish was one claiming that the late Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi was building poison gas factories in 2011. The 56-year-old journalist reportedly died of heart failure, however many believe that his bestselling book cost him his life.

5. David Kelly worked for the British Ministry of Defense as a biological weapons expert back in 2003, when the Iraq war started under a pretext that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. When Kelly reported that no WMDs were found in Iraq, he was labeled a traitor by his colleagues, as well as by major politicians. Later in 2003, he was found dead with the initial report saying that he had overdosed on painkillers and cut his wrist. While some believe that he would not commit suicide, the government rejected any calls for an inquest into Kelly’s death.

FBI: Man planned Christmas terror attack for SF’s Pier 39

Officials have stopped a man who reportedly stated that “Christmas was the perfect day” for a terror attack in San Francisco and “did not need an escape plan because he was ready to die.”

We’ve learned the FBI has arrested a man by the name of Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto. According to a handwritten letter obtained by the FBI, Jameson also referred to himself as Abdallah adu Everitt ibn Gordon.

According to FBI documents, Jameson picked the Pier 39 location because he “had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area.” He added that it would be easy to “funnel” people into an area where he could inflict casualties.

Jameson reportedly said he was inspired by the New York terror attack on Oct. 31, when a man drove into a crowd and killed eight people, and the deadly 2015 shooting in San Bernardino.

The documents also say Jameson was posting and liking pro-ISIS and pro-terrorism content on Facebook.
And according to the documents, the suspect was discharged from the Marine Corps. He had prior military experience with a “sharpshooter” rifle qualification and expertise with rifle marksmanship.

Officials say Jameson was talking to an undercover FBI agent. They add that he was arrested earlier this week and a search warrant was executed at his Modesto home. Several firearms were found, along with fireworks.
ABC7 News contacted officials at Pier 39 to ask for a response, they say they did not know about this plot.

*(MORE FROM THE RELIGION OF PEACE) – ‘ISIS-linked’ man suspected of plotting car-ramming attack detained in Germany

German police have detained a man who they believe was plotting a car-ramming attack near an ice-skating rink in the city of Karlsruhe. He reportedly has connections to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

Investigators say that preliminary information suggests the man, identified as 29-year-old German citizen ‘Dasbar W.,’ planned to ram a vehicle into the stands near the ice-skating rink, which is located in the center of the southwestern city of Karlsruhe. He allegedly scouted the location in August and had unsuccessfully tried to get a job as a delivery driver, which would have given him access to the area and a vehicle.

The suspect is also said to have been distributing IS propaganda videos and promoting its ideology in Whatsapp group chats. Prosecutors say he traveled to Iraq twice between 2015 and July 2017 to join IS and undergo firearms training. They also say he carried out reconnaissance missions for militant attacks in the city of Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan.

“The accused, Dasbar W., is strongly suspected of having supported the terrorist group Islamic State on numerous occasions and therefore becoming a member of it,” prosecutors said in a statement. He is “strongly suspected of plotting a violent action.”

Dasbar W. was closely monitored by authorities ahead of his arrest on Wednesday. “We were faced with a very serious threat, which we approached with vigilance,” Baden-Württemberg Interior Minister Thomas Strobl told the German Press Agency (DPA). The suspect was brought before a federal court on Thursday.

The suspect’s arrest came a day after the one-year anniversary of the Berlin Christmas market attack, which killed 12 people and wounded hundreds of others. It also comes after authorities in Berlin raided the homes of suspected IS members last week, seizing evidence. Germany has been on high alert since last year’s Christmas market attack, with intelligence chief Hans-Georg Maassen stating earlier this month that security services are facing a record number of Islamists.

EU Dictator Tells Europeans – Surrender To The Invasion, Resistance is Futile

EU dictators in Brussels mandate acceptance of their invasion, their means to global government by imposing a replacement, non-assimilated population on distinct, sovereign

By Rick Wells

Dimitris Avramopoulos, the European Union’s Commissioner of Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship had a message for those who disagree with their policy of forced invasion, displacement and replacement of the European nation citizenry – go pound sand.

The cabal of globalist dictators headquartered in Brussels has mandated what will be and those patriots of various nations who don’t want to be overrun by demanding, non-assimilating, often criminal Islamists have no choice, in their view. Accept that they have lost their countries like good slaves, sit down and shut up.

If they wanted to rule themselves they should never have surrendered control to unelected foreign globalist bureaucrats. Now they can do as their told, accept that their new lot in life as second or third class citizens in their own land. Focus instead on learning not to be in the wrong place, to not make the wrong move that could get them or their family raped, hurt or killed by the unwelcome parasites.

Avramopoulos made his fatalistic declaration in a December 18th article in Politico. He announced to their prospective European slaves, former citizens of sovereign nations, ” It’s time to face the truth. We cannot and will never be able to stop migration.” It’s not that he wants to stop it, they’re the ones responsible. What he’s doing is telling the victims the same thing most rapists say, don’t fight back, just relax, surrender and it’ll be easier, maybe less painful. Accept your fate.

He chose the fabricated UN “holiday” of International Migrants Day to make his declaration, saying, “More than 244 million people are living outside their country of birth. Human mobility will increasingly define the 21st century. If we want to be ready for it, we need to start preparing now.”

Many would like to prepare a defense, which is not what Avramopoulos was referencing. If it’s an invasion that would be the natural response. What reason is there to prepare for a surrender? He claimed, “[Forced] Migration is our new reality. The time has come to start thinking, talking and acting about migration in a more comprehensive and long-term way, putting in place policies aimed at promoting integration and inclusion.”

In other words, their masters at the EU are going to continue with their scheme of destroying the cultures, religious values, heritage and cohesive natures of all European nations and they don’t want any more resistance. Just as with the United States Congress, the use of the word comprehensive means “look away and reach for the lubricant.”

After greatly understating the number of invaders as if it is some sort of perverse “success story,” Avramopoulos says a lot still remains to be done and assigns to all of the people of Europe the culpability that belongs to the globalist cabal and the EU for the destruction of Europe. He said, “We need to deliver on our promises.” If he and his globalist comrades made promises they can’t keep, that’s their problem.

He said, “We need to deliver on our promises to evacuate thousands of migrants from Libya either through resettlement or assisted voluntary return in the coming months. We need to reach a comprehensive [there’s that word again] and fair asylum reform by June. Fair to whom and what’s the hurry, Dimitris? Is the EU fearful there will be an uprising against their tyranny?

He continued, “We must also enhance legal channels for economic migration with a more ambitious Blue Card for highly skilled workers and kick-start targeted labor migration pilot projects in key third countries.” How many highly skilled workers are there in third world countries and again, why the rush?

He argued, “But we cannot continue taking an ad hoc approach, thinking and acting with only short-term deadlines in mind. When it comes to migration, we’re in it for the long haul. This is not a problem to solve or a challenge to address. Migration is deeply intertwined with our policies on economics, trade, education and employment — to name just a few. There you have it, Europe. You’ve all lost your countries – the dictator in Brussels proclaims it. Resistance is futile, have some cake.

Avramopoulos ended with a swipe at President Trump’s American uprising and those in Austria, Hungary, Poland and elsewhere, patriots who are saying “No” to their would-be globalist masters. Avramopoulos said, “Unfortunately, the recent discourse on migration — influenced by rising nationalism, populism and xenophobia — has limited our opportunities to put in place smart, forward-looking migration policies, at both the national and European levels.

We’ll take that as the only good news to come out of this subhuman mongrel’s foul mouth. Limiting their opportunities to implement their policies is a victory, with many more on the way. He should be taken for a ride into an Islamic no-go zone in Paris, London or even Brussels late some night and forced out of the car.

Let’s see how much he likes fearing for his life in the hellhole they’re imposing on the whole of Europe.


Cuckold country: Pension funds drained to pay for migrant welfare

 | Infowars.com – DECEMBER 15, 2017

The retirement age for Sweden’s pension funds will eventually rise to 69 due to the Muslim immigration boom in the country.

In short, the country is spending so much money on migrant welfare that it can no longer properly fund the pensions for native retirees.

Swedish media, which typically downplays immigration pitfalls, actually admitted the rise in the retirement age would result in “a major deterioration” of the quality of life for Swedes.

According to Epressen.se(translated into English):

Sweden’s need for welfare increases faster than our revenues.

Then the Minister of Finance, Magdalena Andersson, raises the height of retirement age.

“Looking at those who start working at 30, there should be opportunities to work longer than 65,” says Magdalena Andersson to Dina Pengar.

Andersson also implied the elderly will just need to “suck it up” to help out migrants:

She believes that there must be an attitude change in the elderly in the labor market.

“Those who are high up in the ages will have the opportunity to work longer,” says the finance minister.

Friatider.se (also translated into English) was even more frank with the news:

The minimum age for obtaining general pension will be increased gradually from 61 years, as it is today, to 64 years in 2026.

You should, therefore, be able to retire at the age of 64 at the earliest. In addition, employees must be entitled to work for 69 years.

“As we live longer, we also have to work longer if pensions can continue to grow. This agreement is an important step towards longer working life and thus higher pensions and more resources for welfare, “said the Alliance parties’ four representatives in the Pension Group in a statement.

But what it really is about is the big immigration to Sweden. This was reported Sweden’s municipalities and county councils (SKL) in its financial report earlier years.

Sweden is now officially a cuckolded country: not only are military-age migrants raping Swedish girls with impunity (the country’s rape rates is second only to South Africa) but now Swedes are expected to work until nearly 70 to pay for the freeloading migrant lifestyle.

Maybe Sweden should just go ahead and adopt an Islamic national flag as 4Chan suggested.

ISIS threatens attacks on US soil over Trump’s Jerusalem decision

Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has threatened attacks in the United States in retaliation for Donald Trump‘s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, according to one of the terrorist group’s social media accounts.


The message was relayed on an account on the Telegram instant message service. In that message, IS said it would carry out operations in the US, showing photos of New York’s Times Square and what appeared to be an explosive belt and detonator.

Calling the US president a “dog,” the message promised a response to that decision by “recognizing explosives” as the capital of the United States, Reuters reported.

Trump announced his formal recognition of the ancient city as the Jewish state’s capital last week. “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering,” he said.

The move prompted anger across the Muslim world, along with criticism from most EU states, Russia and China.

On Wednesday, Hamas renewed its call for a new infitada, or uprising: “The Hamas movement has called on the Palestinian people to face the Israeli occupation and adopt the blessed intifada option against it and against the American decision on Jerusalem,” Hamas spokesperson Abdullatif Al Qanoua told RT.

Meanwhile, Iran’s defense minister said Trump’s decision would speed up the destruction of Tehran’s arch rival: “(Trump‘s) move will hasten the destruction of the Zionist regime [Israel] and will double unity among Muslims,” Brigadier General Hatami told a meeting of senior military officials Monday, as cited by various Iranian media outlets.


‘Day of Rage’ protests were called in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem following Trump’s announcement, leading to hundreds being injured. Others demonstrated in Asian capitals and in Europe, with Israeli flags being burned in Berlin.

In an emergency UN Security Council meeting following the decision, British ambassador Matthew Rycroft said the UK “disagrees” with Trump’s decision, while France said it “regrets” the move. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has also stressed that Berlin “does not support” Trump’s decision, while EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the European Union would continue to recognize the “international consensus” on Jerusalem.

However, the US remains steadfast, with US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley stating on Sunday that “the sky hasn’t fallen” following Trump’s decision. She insisted that the move was the “right thing to do” and that it’s “just reality” that Jerusalem is indisputably the capital of Israel.

Haley also stated during the emergency meeting that only the United States – not the other 14 nations comprising the council – has credibility when it comes to mediating the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
