When diving into the recent multi-terabyte leak that is sweeping the globe in a media frenzy, what has been dubbed the “Panama Papers,” it takes a very brief amount of research to find a wide variety of discrepancies and various information “loose ends” within the papers.
To dive right into this, the first major red flag (similar to flags raised by the Snowden Files) is that these documents have not been released to the public yet, nor will they be. Gerald Ryle of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), heading the organization that is guiding the journalism on the matter, said in an interview,
“We’re not WikiLeaks. We’re trying to show that journalism can be done responsibly.”
“Shots Fired” an informative article by Zerohedge.com reads on the matter, and the shots have indeed continued with retaliations from Assange himself. WikiLeaks has since taken up a social media campaign discussing the heavy support and funding of the Panama Papers coming from the Soros Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and USAID.
Researchers like Jon Rappoport and James Corbett have been diligent in pointing out the dangers in these massive, institutionalized data-leaks as what they call “selective leaking.” Rappoport and others have conclusively documented how Nixon’s Watergate scandal was one of these selective leaks, where the media was given a green-light to fry Nixon. As well, the Snowden Files can nearly conclusively be shown to be this type of selective leaking. Not only does the number change often when discussing the amount of files Snowden actually took, but it would take decades upon decades to release all the Snowden Files at the rate they have currently done so. Not to mention Snowden’s largely unnoticed CIA connections before he began working with the NSA. This is still just the tip of the iceberg, with Watergate, Snowden and the Panama Papers; they are very much playing themselves out as a textbook example of the media and recognized institutions getting a green-light to make accusations proposed by this leak. This is not to say that any of these scandals and documents were false, quite the contrary, but that they were simply allowed to happen, to one degree or another, with designs to influence public opinion by selective releasing incriminating documentation on enemies of the western elites.
On another brief, passerby note, one of the obvious reasons for elites selecting this leak is evidently for purposes of further smearing Vladmir Putin’s image and credibility. Unfortunately, when top media outlets like FOX and CNN tackle these cases of “Putin scandals” in the Panama Papers, they are highly suggestive, presumptuous, and full of half-truths. While Putin’s name is reportedly in the Panama Papers, it is through degrees of relationship where he is mentioned–not implicated in any crimes. Of course, the documents haven’t been released, so there’s no way to actually verify this one way or the other. But this is the official narrative that the Mainstream Media is running with as well, which is why they have to use suggestive implications of Putin’s dealings, instead of actual documentation. The video report below by James Corbett has more details on the matter:
With WikiLeaks promoting documentation of NATO-funded Islamic terrorism during the Paris Attacks, and now calling out the selective-leaking of the Panama Papers, it certainly lends credibility to his name, but even Assange cannot be totally ruled out as some sort of selective-leaker. However, it has always seemed the case that if any of these journalism/activism groups/outlets are authentic, it would be Assange and WikiLeaks, and there doesn’t appear to be any evidence of his lack of authenticity other than speculation.
What can be said on the matter is that the Panama Papers are fishy at best, and seem to bear a clear agenda. With the average American beginning to wise up to this elitist game of deception and misdirection, it will be interesting to see how the public responds as the truth is revealed in real time.
