Michael Bloomberg Slams 'Epidemic' Of Political Lies As Danger To Democracy

Billionaire and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg lashed out Saturday at the “epidemic of dishonesty” in politics that he said poses “one of the most serious dangers” to American democracy.

During a commencement speech at Rice University in Texas, Bloomberg slammed the “endless barrage of lies” and “alternate realities” in national politics.

“People are entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts,” he said.

Bloomberg didn’t single out President Donald Trump, though, he has called Trump’s candidacy a “con.” Bloomberg said Saturday that rampant dishonesty in politics is now “bigger than any one person … than any one party.”

He also held up presidents of the past — George Washington and Abraham Lincoln — as models of honesty. 

“How did we go from a president who could not tell a lie to politicians who cannot tell the truth?” Bloomberg asked. “Today when we look at the city that bears Washington’s name, it’s hard not to wonder, ‘What the hell happened?’”

Bloomberg sharply criticized “enablers” who tolerate and defend lies.

Lies, he said, are only the start of a profound disturbance in U.S. politics.

“When elected officials speak as though they are above the truth, they will act as though they are above the law,” Bloomberg said. That invites “criminality” in the “form of corruption [and] abuse of power.”

“These abuses can erode the institutions that protect and preserve our rights and freedoms and open the door to tyranny and fascism,” he added. 

Watch the rest of the speech is in the video above.

Bloomberg just last month committed $4.5 million to fund the United States’ annual commitment to the Paris climate agreement after Trump announced that the nation is withdrawing from the pact. He also last month criticized Environmental Protection Agency head  Scott Pruitt for “abandoning” the environment “100 percent.

Simpsons Creator Refuses to Apologize for ‘Apu,’ and Exposes Danger of ‘Pretending to be Offended’

simpsonssimpsons

Simpsons creator Matt Groening knew he would stir up controversy when he decided to give life to show character “Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.” But maybe he had no idea how much, or didn’t care. Whatever his motivation for introducing the world to Apu, his character has predictably drawn the consternation of the politically correct police department.

But according to Groening, the outrage is fake news and those who take offense to the stereotypical Indian character are simply pretending to be offended. In a revealing interview with USA Today, Groening was asked if he had any comments about Apu being a stereotype of the Indian Community.

“Not really,” Groening responded. I’m proud of what we do on the show. And I think it’s a time in our culture where people love to pretend they’re offended.”

One of those concerned citizens to whom Groening was likely referring is comedian Hari Kondabolu. Even though Kondabolu has made a living employing his self-deprecating humor, often making fun of his own Indian heritage, he decided to attempt to kill Apu by making a documentary. “The Problem With Apu,” as it is titled, attempts to reveal just how stereotypical, racist, and offensive Apu is to the Indian-American community.

TruTV’s documentary even assembled A-list actors to opine about how offensive Apu is to them. Those actors include Kal Penn, Whoopi Goldberg, and others.

Kondabolu readily admits Apu sounds like his father but seems more offended that long-time Simpson voice-over actor, Hank Azaria, a white man, was tapped as the voice of Apu.

None of that bothers Groening. And it really does not seem to bother Kondabolu, who is now making money off of attacking a fictitious animated character who looks and sounds like many Indian-Americans people encounter on a daily basis. In the end, Apu is simply funny, and a somewhat true to life persona as many people view him.

‘So what makes Apu so stereotypical?’ one might ask. For starters, Apu is a Kwik-E-Mart owner, not that he couldn’t have been, to fit the stereotype, a taxi cab driver, deli owner, doctor, or smoke shop owner.

His voice is choppy, quick, and slightly nasalized, which emphasizes a South Asian and until people created an issue out of it, millions of Americans—including those from India—found humor in it.

In the Youtube video below, Kondabolu spoke freely with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show and admitted, “I don’t really give a shit” about Apu. He revealed that the network, TruTV, wouldn’t like his comments.

Such an admission proves Groening’s point, one could say. The offense isn’t real and isn’t born out of something truly offensive. That is proof enough that Kondabolu is doing the critical documentary for the same reason Groening makes the Simpsons. It’s about the money, honey!

Kondabolu admitted that he had made fun of Indians relentlessly. “I milked it for as much as I could…about four or five years,” until he said, 9/11 happened. That is when he claims he changed. But he has not. He is still making money from pseudo-outrage over the Simpson’s character Apu and his White guy voice-over, Hank Azaria.

Co-writer/Executive Producer of the Simpsons, Dana Gould, simplified Apu’s character by telling Kondabolu why he is so funny. In a way, with his choice of words, Gould put to death any talk of Apu’s character as being an attempt by the show’s creators to be racist.

“There are accents that by their nature to white Americans, sound funny. Period,” Gould said.

Last week, Azaria was a guest on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert where he discussed Apu and his character. Azaria told Colbert the fact that anyone was bullied or teased by Apu’s character “makes me sad,” and he admitted that there is a lot of talk about what to do with Apu.

Azaria said he would be “perfectly willing to step aside” if, as he says, it was “the right thing to do.” He also said he would welcome South Asian writers or voice-overs into the studio. And that is precisely what the Simpsons critics want: Representation. They want a seat at the table. But it is unclear if Groening and Gould are willing to change the formula for their show’s success. After all, The Simpsons is the nation’s longest-running primetime scripted TV show.

 

There is a dangerous precedent being set in America right now, and it all stems from the act of being offended and the actions one takes to prevent future ‘offenses.’ It is important to note that the freedom of speech is under attack and it is a bipartisan effort. Many of those complicit in the quelling of free speech are merely useful idiots and have no idea they are participating in one of the most effective forms of censorship humanity has ever seen.

All people have to do to silence anyone with whom they disagree is to now claim their speech offended them.

Telling people what words they can and can’t say and how they can say them to ‘protect’ others is chilling and nothing short of tyrannical. Freedom of speech does not come with terms and conditions as words alone, less the obvious yelling “fire” in a movie theater, cannot cause physical harm.

The act of being offended is a choice taken by those who hear certain words. Limiting or changing language does nothing to stop someone from offending in another manner or being offended.

Before his death in 2008, George Carlin wrote a book titled, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?in which he blasted everything from the dumbing down of America to the politically correct police.

In his book, Carlin explains how being politically correct is actually intolerance disguised as tolerance.

Political correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people’s language with strict codes and rigid rules. I’m not sure that’s the way to fight discrimination. I’m not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech.

Indeed, just like it is Kondabolu’s right to make a movie criticizing Apu, it is Groening’s right to make fun of stereotypes. It’s called freedom and there are no better options. If they can silence one of us, they can silence any of us.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

Assange In Grave Danger, Hated Because Clintons Control Media – Pamela Anderson

WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange is in grave danger, isolated inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, according to his friend Pamela Anderson. The actress blamed a pro-Clinton media of making Assange ‘hated’ in Hollywood.

Anderson is a close friend of Assange, but was turned away from the embassy when she tried to visit him last month. Ecuador cited Assange’s tweet about Catalan separatists as a pretext to jam his phone and internet access and stop him from receiving any visitors.

The last time Anderson talked to Assange was March 27, the day his access to the outside world was shut off.

“He’s cut off from everybody,” the Baywatch star told the Hollywood Reporter (THR) in an interview published Wednesday. “The air and light quality [at the embassy] is terrible because he can’t keep his windows open and he can’t get any sunlight. Even prisoners can go outside, but he can’t.”

The US intelligence community accused WikiLeaks of being a “Russian cutout” after the outlet published internal Democratic National Committee emails, as well as emails from the private account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta, during the 2016 US presidential election.

Assange actually sought sanctuary inside the Ecuadorian embassy back in 2012, fearing he would be extradited to the US on espionage charges because WikiLeaks had published thousands of US government documents related to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in 2010.

“He’s been wrongly accused of so many things,” Anderson told THR. “He’s so misunderstood… especially in Hollywood, and really hated, because of the Clinton monopoly on the media.”

“I always try to humanize him because people think he’s a robot or he’s a computer screen or he’s not this human being,” Anderson said.

This is not the first time the actress has raised an alarm over Assange’s isolation. Appearing on ITV’s ‘Good Morning Britain’ last month, Anderson expressed fear he could die inside the embassy.

The actress believes WikiLeaks provides a valuable public service, and that accusations against Assange are bogus, according to THR.

“There are people in the world that don’t question authority,” she said. “They just think, ‘Oh, somebody smarter than me has figured it out, and I’m gonna go on with my day and I don’t have any feeling about it because I’m too busy.’ I think that’s dangerous.”

Canadian-born Anderson became a US citizen during her star turn in the 1990s. She has since swapped the beaches of Malibu for the French Riviera, living in Marseilles with her soccer star boyfriend Adil Rami.

HIDDEN SUGAR DANGER: Breakfast blueberry muffins contain as much sugar as a can of Coke


Image: HIDDEN SUGAR DANGER: Breakfast blueberry muffins contain as much sugar as a can of Coke

(Natural News)
You probably don’t think twice about reaching for a blueberry muffin when you want a snack because you believe it’s the healthier option compared to a cupcake. However, according to a report, a blueberry muffin may have the same amount of sugar as a can of soda.

Based on the data from the report, blueberry muffins contain at least eight teaspoons of hidden sugar. Sometimes, the snack even contains 35 grams of sugar, which is almost the same as a can of Coca-Cola. Now, campaigners are pushing for more detailed nutrition labeling following the release of the findings.

The Obesity Health Alliance (OHA) and Action on Sugar compared blueberry muffins being sold at cafes, supermarkets, and train stations in the U.K. The list, which contained data on 28 muffins, revealed that 17 muffins had more than 22 grams (g) of sugar. This is equal to six teaspoons, which is almost the entire daily limit for a 10-year-old child.

Seven of the blueberry muffins on the list had more than seven teaspoons of sugar or an adult’s entire daily allowance. Overall, muffins sold at railway station stores contained at least 19 percent more sugar per portion, with some 32 percent bigger than blueberry muffins sold in supermarkets. (Related: 7 Health Foods that Aren’t Healthy.)

The researchers warned that because there was a lack of nutrition labeling on products sold at popular stores in train stations, most shoppers aren’t aware of the sugar content of the products that they consume.

The muffins with the highest sugar contents came from McDonald’s and Pret A Manger which both contained eight teaspoons. Meanwhile, blueberry muffins from Caffe Nero, Starbucks, and Tesco had seven teaspoons of sugar.

The importance of choosing healthier snacks

OHA’s Caroline Cerny explained that even though we believe a blueberry muffin is “a reasonably healthy option for a snack,” especially when compared to cakes or chocolates, the figures imply that this isn’t always true.

The variations in the muffin size and sugar content make it hard to control sugar consumption. Cerny added that some of the muffins being sold have double the sugar as other blueberry muffins. However, this also means that the industry can still minimize the sugar content of their products to provide consumers with healthier snack choices.

Kawther Hashem, a registered nutritionist from Action on Sugar, explained that during the holidays, families passing through busy stations usually purchase these muffins and children would most likely consume them. But since some muffins contain high amounts of sugar, it would mean that the children would also be consuming “their entire recommended limit of sugar that day, if not more.”

Professor Russell Viner, president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Healthemphasized the need for proper nutritional labeling so families can be aware of the sugar content of food. Clarifying this misunderstanding could be one step closer to helping families makes healthy snack choices.

Healthy snack recipes

Instead of buying a blueberry muffin with too much sugar in it, try to make these healthier snack alternatives at home:

  • Avocado cracker – Get some avocado, multigrain crackers, pepper, salt, and a tomato. Put some avocado on a multigrain cracker, and you can add optional ingredients like a ¼-inch thick slice of plum or romano tomato. Add some salt and pepper to taste.
  • Hummus and veggies mason jars – You’ll need some carrots, celery, hummus, and peppers for this snack. Get a small hummus jar for portion control then divide the portioned servings of hummus with the fiber-rich vegetables.
  • Monkey toast – Make some monkey toast using a banana, bread, chia seeds, honey, and peanut butter. Spread the peanut butter on toasted bread, put some sliced bananas on top and sprinkle some chia seeds on the toast. Finish it off with a drizzle of honey.

Putin Says ISIS Remains Global Danger Despite Military Defeat

Home » Europe, Politics, Terrorism, Wars / Conflicts » Putin Says ISIS Remains Global Danger Despite Military Defeat



 


Despite the successful counter-terrorism mission in Syria and Iraq, the Daesh* terrorist group is still capable of conducting raids in different regions throughout the world, and in order to confront it, we need to think about new forms of international cooperation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

“Despite its military defeat, the terrorist group Daesh retains a significant destructive potential, the ability to quickly change tactics and conduct sorties in various countries and regions throughout the world. Other extremist structures also pose a great danger,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his greeting to participants of the Moscow Conference on International Security.

Given these conditions, Putin believes, “it is necessary to think together about new forms of multilateral cooperation that would allow us to consolidate the gains made in the fight against terrorism and to prevent the further spread of this threat.”

Daesh, a Salafi jihadist terrorist organization, proclaimed itself a global caliphate and kick-started a large scale offensive in 2014 in Iraq and later in Syria. By 2015 the group had managed to seize large areas in western Iraq and eastern Syria, containing about 2.8 to 8 million people and imposed its own radical form of the Sharia law there.

As an outcome of the Russian-Syrian and US-led coalition’s anti-terrorist efforts, the terrorist organization has lost over 90 percent of its territorial gains in Syria and Iraq, as well as its strongholds in Deir ez-Zor, Mosul and Raqqa.

*Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS) is a terrorist group banned in Russia

So You Think the Danger Is Over?

The election of Trump did not solve all of our problems, However, many Americans act as if that is exactly what has happened.

Last fall, the average American discovered the world of the Independent Media. They read and/or listened intently about the dangers associated with electing a morally depraved individual like Hillary Clinton. However, as soon Donald Trump was elected, many of these newly awakened persons went back to sleep thinking that the danger had passed. The danger is more prevelant than ever before.

In life, like sports, it is necessary to return to fundamentals. We need to recall that the Deep State supported Hillary and they were defeated because they let use their platforms to defeat them. The globalists underestimated our collective ability to wake up a slumbeing public. In order to prevent any more backsliding by the general public in terms of standing up to the Deep State, it is time ro review who they are, what they stand for and how they supported Hillary. Hillary may be defeated but her benefactors have not gone anywhere. They are looking for the next liberal, American-hating candidate to represent their agenda.

Below is a summary of their belief systems. After reading through the following, ask yourself a question, is the war between good and evil over, or should you stay engaged?

History Speaks Will America Listen?

America stands upon the precipice of an economic Armageddon, or WW III as we are witnessing the most gigantic theft of public and private assets in the history of the planet. Conspicuously missing from the national conversation of America’s pending economic collapse is the answer to the question; “Where did our money go and who is responsible for this unprecedented theft?” Tangible assets just don’t disappear into thin air, they are redistributed. So,where did our money go and who is responsible?  The answers to these questions do not reside in the plethora of extensive present day analysis. Rather, the reasons and people responsible for the economic subjugation of the United States lie in the words of past statesmen, bankers, journalists and historians.

Will these people destroy the planet to get what they want. Let’s let them tell us in their own words.

Depopulation Quotes

 

Depopulation Quotes

No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”

David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary.”

Initiative for the United Nations ECO-92 EARTH CHARTER

“One America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say in order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”

Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier

“A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.”

United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment

“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline would be ideal.”

Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major United Nations contributor

Is anyone else bothered by the fact that this pack of Eugenicists are overseeing our elections? Perhaps the officials at the United Nations stand alone among elite leaders on the planet.

Although it is painfully obvious that the United Nations elite have a high level of contempt for the average person, surely those people responsible for educating our children will teach the time honored virtues of the United States Constitution. Surely, they will teach their students to develop a healthy respect for American sovereignty so that the genocidal lunatics running the United Nations are unable to put their genocidal schemes into motion. Upon further review, this is not the case as I bring to you the words of those who educate and mold the minds of our young people.

War and famine would not do. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the population crisis is to be solved. AIDS is not an efficient killer because it is too slow. My favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world’s population is airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. “We’ve got airborne diseases with 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that. “You know, the bird flu’s good, too. For everyone who survives, he will have to bury nine”

Dr. Eric Pianka University of Texas speaking on the topic of reducing the world’s population to an audience on population control.

A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells, the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.”

Stanford Professor Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

“We have to take away from humans in the long run their reproductive autonomy as the only way to guarantee the advancement of mankind.”

Francis Crick, The discoverer of the double-helix structure of DNA

It strongly appears that the Eugenicists patrolling corridors of educational institutions possess the same disdain for mankind as do the lunatic officials from the United Nations.

These are just a small representation of the belief systems that oppose humanity.

These are the just a smatter of the philsophies of those who oppose us. These belief systems permeate Google, Amazon, Hillary Clinton, Wasserman Schultz, the Rockefeller, the Rothschilds and people like Hillary Clinton. These people back the liberals. They are Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Knowing this, isn’t it important to stay engaged?

Stephen Colbert is "a danger to this country" Nunes



 


Comedian Stephen Colbert is no laughing matter, according to House Intelligence Committee head Devin Nunes, who said his jokes are a “danger.” He accused Democrats of using Hollywood to deflect evidence of their own wrongdoings.

Rep. Nunes (R-California) was the butt of jokes in an episode of the Late Show, which saw Colbert travel to Washington, DC to question congressmen about the alleged Trump-Russia collusion. Colbert handed out copies of a memo which read: “Devin Nunes is a [redacted].”

“This is the danger that we have in this country,” Nunes said when asked about Colbert by Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Saturday. “The left controls not only the universities in this country, but they also control Hollywood in this country, and the mainstream media, so conservatives in this country are under attack, and I think this is a great example of it.”

The California representative went on to dismiss the left’s excitement about the Russia investigation. “On the one hand you’ll see the left and the media running out there saying, ‘oh my gosh, it’s the end of the world, the Russians hacked our democracy, and we have evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.’ However, they can’t show it, they have no proof,” he said.

He then reversed the attack by pinning the “Russia collusion” accusation on the Democrats. Nunes said that when Republicans present “proof that not only did the Democratic party collude and get information from the Russians, and then an investigation was opened up into the Trump campaign to spy on the Trump campaign,” the left “resort[s] to going to their friends in Hollywood to make fun of people and attack people who are trying to get to the truth.”

“I enjoy the attacks, if they want to continue to attack me, that’s fine,” he added.

Colbert introduced the Capitol Hill segment by dismissing the much-hyped Nunes memo and the subsequent counter-memo released by Democrats. In Washington, he met with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) and asked whether there was “juicy stuff” to come out of the House Intelligence Committee. He also spoke to Senator Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) and head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Mike Warner (D-Virginia), whom he asked about the “pee-pee tape.”

Another danger for coral reefs: Plastic trash transports microorganisms that spread disease across the ocean floor

(Natural News)
The phrase “deep, blue sea” may slowly become a thing of the past, as more seas and oceans are being filled up with waste plastic. Its adverse effects have surely been felt by nearly all marine life, but a team of international researchers led by Cornell University has discovered one more unfortunate effect of plastic. They found out that plastic waste drifting in the ocean can adversely impact the corals it gets tangled with, as the material provides a favorable environment for microbial colonization.

The study, which was published in the journal Science, had researchers investigate 159 coral reefs in the Asia-Pacific region to determine how the plastic debris affects the coral, as well as the likelihood of disease of a coral tangled with plastic, visiting reefs from Indonesia, Australia, Myanmar, and Thailand.

The reason for this, the research team stated in their paper, is that there have been several studies of the impact of terrestrial pollutants in the ocean; however, the full effect of plastic waste in marine organisms has yet to be explored.

After surveying the reefs, the research team found that billions of plastic materials have been tangled in the reefs – with more spikey species getting tangled with more plastic materials. The amount of plastic in the sampled areas was estimated to be at least 11.1 billion items that are stuck in coral reefs across the Asia-Pacific. (Related: The plastic pollution problem is wide AND deep: Study finds sea animals from the deepest parts of the ocean, 7 miles down, have plastic in their stomachs.)

According to study lead author Joleah Lamb, plastic debris act as a “motorhome” for microbes.

“Plastics make ideal vessels for colonizing microscopic organisms that could trigger disease if they come into contact with corals,” she continued. “Plastic items – commonly made of polypropylene, such as bottle caps and toothbrushes – have been shown to become heavily inhabited by bacteria. This is associated with the globally devastating group of coral diseases known as white syndromes.”

If a plastic latches itself onto a coral, it becomes prone to disease. In particular, the study reported that once this happens, the likelihood of the coral to get a disease increases by 20 times.

This is because of the stress brought about by the plastic to the corals. In particular, it blocks the light source of the corals, leading to anoxic conditions which favor pathogen growth, as well as toxin release.

In addition, corals are physically injured when they come in contact with plastic debris. This leads to abrasion, which opens up the coral to pathogen invasion. When this happens, the immune system of the coral may be compromised, allowing pathogens such as Halofolliculina corallasia to infect it and cause complications such as skeletal eroding band disease.

The authors posited that if these conditions continue, the amount of plastic that will impact the marine environment will skyrocket to 15.7 billion items, which will ultimately affect corals the world over. When this happens, the effects will not only be felt by the tourism industry but by those in fishing and coastal protection as well – a combined net worth of $357 billion in goods and services provided.

Through this investigation, researchers opined that a decrease in the amount of plastic entering the ocean will be advantageous to coral reefs, especially as its chances of getting disease-associated mortality is reduced.

“Our work shows that plastic pollution is killing corals. Our goal is to focus less on measuring things dying and more on finding solutions,” concluded Drew Harvell, a senior author of the study. “This new work should drive policy toward reducing plastic pollution.”

Trump Is In Dire Danger

 

Plan A, the Russian-collusion-delusion failed and failed miserably for the Deep State.

Plen B, the planned removal of the President under the 25th Amendment disability clause for mental illness has failed.

The Deep State has fired all their political bullets and now all they have left is Plan C, which is where they keep the real bullets.

With the capture of a would-be assassin earlier in the week, the Secret Service has now gained some measure of plausible deniability. They can claim that if the worst happens, that they did their best.

This President is a walking, talking target. Beware of a lone assasssin with a diary which states, in advance what he is going to do. And of course, this would be assassin will be acting alone.
