What would we do without government investigators or the media to uncover and report on the truth?

Answer: We’ll just do it ourselves.

The internet, even with all its downsides, has certainly done some interesting things for the way “normal” folks can do awesome things.  Are the authorities not doing their duty in investigating a (potential) murder case?  Covering things up are they?  Media not doing their jobs to honestly report facts and relevant current events?  No worries.  The centipedes and /pol/ are on top of things.

Just a couple examples from today.

On the Donald this morning, they were talking about Wikileaks’ twitter announcement: BREAKING: Sweden has dropped its case against Julian Assange and will revoke its arrest warrant

So now does Mr. Assange just need a pardon from Trump and he’ll actually get to leave the Embassy?  Some pedes seem to think leaving may be too dangerous for Assange even if that were possible, and that maybe it’s just a trap.  I almost wouldn’t put it past the pedes and/or /pol/ to somehow break Assange out of the Embassy and have him whisked away to some safe and undisclosed location.

Google, of course, failed me for any further information.  If you want truly breaking news, skip the news outlets, just go to the citizen investigators of the internet.

In other news, the centipedes and /pol/ are busy working to collect, archive and sift through every trace of Seth Rich on the internet (just one of many threads with them hard at work).  They’re analyzing his entire life and personality and picking out anything that would lead to confirmation that he was the source of the DNC leaks and was murdered for it.  As the circumstantial evidence amasses, it becomes increasingly easy to believe this “internet conspiracy theory.”

If it’s the so-called “unbiased media” and government officials — who we should supposedly be trusting over “weirdos” on the internet — who keep dishing out falsehoods and fake news, what are we supposed to think when the so-called “internet conspiracy theories” keep turning out to be true these days.  I’m not sure there is anything too weird and convoluted to believe, especially when it comes to politics.

His Name Was Seth Rich

And he wasn’t a Russian hacker.

Family’s private investigator: There is evidence Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to death

Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District’s Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich’s work at the DNC.

Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich’s death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right.

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.

Now, questions have been raised on why D.C. police, the lead agency on this murder investigation for the past ten months, have insisted this was a robbery gone bad when there appears to be no evidence to suggest that.

Wheeler, a former D.C. police homicide detective, is running a parallel investigation into Rich’s murder. He said he believes there is a cover-up and the police department has been told to back down from the investigation.

Wheeler also told us, “I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday].

Of course there was nothing prior to this suggesting that Rich had anything to do with Wikileaks, ‘cept for last August Julian Assange just randomly out of the goodness of his heart offering a $20,000 reward for information about the murder:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange implied in an interview that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer was the source of a trove of damaging emails the rogue website posted just days before the party’s convention.

Speaking to Dutch television program Nieuswsuur Tuesday after earlier announcing a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Seth Rich’s killer, Assange said the July 10 murder of Rich in Northwest Washington was an example of the risk leakers undertake.

“Whistle-blowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks,” Assange said. “As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.”

The only way the media will take this seriously is if it turns out Rich’s real name was Dimitri.
