When Zelo Street posted on the visit to the Ecuadorian embassy in London’s upmarket Knightsbridge district by Nigel “Thirsty” Farage, who came over all coy about the incident later and even suggested he never discussed where he went or who he saw - like heck - some of those commenting did not believe either that Julian Assange, who is holed up in the building, was a Russian asset, or that Farage may be one too.
Squeaky lack of patriotism finger up the bum time
But recent revelations by those Stateside investigating the connections of the Trump gang and its hangers-on to the gangsterist régime of Vladimir Vladimirovitch Putin suggest that not only is Assange fatally compromised by his relationship with the Russians, but also that Mr Thirsty is in it up to his neck. The thought that this great self-proclaimed patriot may owe allegiance to a country other than the UK will have Kippers spitting feathers.
I’ll go further: when long-serving Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who represents California’s 43rd Congressional District, put together “Trump’s Kremlin Klan”, and included such luminaries as Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, and yes, Assange in their number, one face was missing - Nigel Farage. The evidence is stacking up by the day.
When Politico compiled seven charts laying out the ties between the Combover Crybaby and the Russians, the third of these - “Trump and Putin, via campaign advisors” - shows Roger Stone linked to Assange via someone named only as “Mystery Person”, the man who told Stone that Clinton campaign emails were about to be published by Wikileaks.
The identity of the “Mystery Person” has been all but revealed by Martin Longman in an article for the Washington Monthly. Titled “Did Nigel Farage Serve as Roger Stone’s Intermediary?”, he teases readers with this revealing paragraph.
“The reason people are so interested in Roger Stone’s connections to Julian Assange is because he is a longtime close associate of Donald Trump and business partner with his campaign manager Paul Manafort, and he freely admitted on more than one occasion that he had a backchannel to Assange that provided him with advance notice on (at least the general outlines) of what they would be leaking before they actually leaked it”.
And the key date on that front is August 8 last year: “During an August 8 speech, Stone said, ‘I actually have communicated with Assange’ and then referred to a Wikileaks ‘October surprise.’ Stone subsequently stated that while he had never met or spoken to the Wikileaks founder, the men had a ‘mutual friend’ who served as an ‘intermediary’”.
Roger Stone Tweeted that same day that he had had dinner with Nigel Farage.
Longman also muses “WikiLeaks dumped a bunch of CIA files on the internet yesterday, which also makes Farage’s visit today to Assange especially interesting”.
He concludes “Stone has himself admitted getting his inside information from an intermediary with Julian Assange. He has admitted to dining with Nigel Farage in the relevant time period. Nigel Farage just met with Donald and Ivanka Trump and Steve Bannon less than two weeks ago. Nigel Farage just visited the Ecuadorian embassy in London where Assange lives and couldn’t remember why when questioned about it on the sidewalk outside”. And remember that reference to Paul Manafort?
Ah well. The Boston Globe has something to share with its readers about Manafort: “Trump’s former campaign chairman secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance Putin's interests”. Not only does it keep coming up Russians for the Trump gang, but it is very much coming up Russians for the former head Kipper.
Op top of that, current UKIP leader Paul Nuttall is another who sings the praises of Putin. And that’s before mentioning names like Arron Banks, and Russia’s largest commercial bank Alfa Bank, which latter may also be under investigation by the FBI.
It’s looking more and more as if that visit to the Ecuadorian embassy by Mr Thirsty was plainly and simply a dead giveaway. And the involvement of someone from broadcaster LBC is looking increasingly like one of those Most Unwise And Inadvisable Moves.
Is Nigel Farage really a patriot? Maybe, but the country name may not be Great Britain.
