Assange Tweets Famous Chess Match Depicting "Safe White King" One Day After Ecuador Grants Citizenship

One day after Julian Assange was granted Ecuadorian citizenship, the Wikileaks founder tweeted a cryptic picture of a famous 1918 chess match in which Cuban chess master José Raúl Capablanca defeats U.S. champion Frank Marshall using a pawn. 


The move which Assange tweets can be seen below at approximately 7:14, in which the narrator says "And the white king is finally feeling safe." 


Theories naturally began to swirl in various corners of the internet, with some suggesting Assange's tweet is a message to his followers that he, "the White King" is safe. Others took the "white king" to mean President Trump - who is well protected while a pawn is used to win the match.

Black's queen has been marginalized to an ineffective slot behind white's still-standing and strongly-defended king-knight pawn. Capablanca is able to finally develop the resources patiently waiting on the queen side. Although not as flashy as Marshall's full assault in the opening, Capablanca's pawn attack comes at a better time and is much more devastating. A slow-motion invasion of black's deserted queen side.

Others pointed out that Capablanca's name translates to "White Hat" - a phrase commonly referring to an ethical computer hacker or government operative. 




Given the timing of Assange's Ecuadorian citizenship, at minimum the tweet suggests that some type of wheels are in motion, and Assange's stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in London - going on six years, is close to an end. 

On Wednesday we reported that Julian Assange had been granted an Ecuadorian passport based on information found on a government website - one day after Ecuadorian officials made a veiled threat to evict him from the Embassy. That day, Assange tweeted a picture of himself wearing an Ecuador football shirt - fueling speculation: 

This was followed by Ecuador's largest newspaper, El Universo, reported the news, citing "reliable sources". And now, it is confirmed. More from Reuters:



The speculation was put to rest on Thursday, as the Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) announced that Ecuador had indeed granted naturalization to Julian Assange on December 12. The reaction of the MFA comes one day after Quito reportedly granted an ID card to Assange.

The nation's foreign minister announced Thursday that officials had decided to permit Assange's naturalization while they look for ways to resolve his situation.

Ecuador gave Assange political asylum after he sought refuge in the embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden for investigation of sex-related claims.

Sweden dropped the case, though Assange has remained in the embassy because he is still subject to arrest in Britain for jumping bail.

The Ecuadorian passport could obtain his first step to obtaining diplomatic immunity, as Ecuador wants to resolve Assange’s indefinite embassy stay. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for five years.

Ecuador usually issues such ID cards for people claiming residency status, which are called cedulas. The Vienna convention on diplomatic relations states that someone who holds a diplomatic passport is immune from prosecution. It is still no guarantee, however.

However, as VoA reports, the UK Foreign Office rejected a request from Quito to grant the whistleblower diplomatic status. The passport was reportedly granted to him on December 12.

Ecuador’s foreign minister says the country is seeking a “dignified and just” solution with the UK government over Assange’s case. For now however, Assange isn't going anywhere:



Or will he???

Iran, Iraq and Syria inked an agreement to run a pipeline through, and shortly thereafter the ‘civil war’ in Syria truly heated up.

Given Israel’s hopes of selling Golani and Leviathan oil and gas to Europe, it is not difficult to imagine that preventing the Iran-Syria pipeline would be a high priority for Ashkenazistan, no?

Not to mention US corps like Noble and Genie.

But Syria was long on the menu anyway, of course.  As you know.


The notion the US was spending billions  to help Qatari gas compete with the Israelis in selling to Europe was, of course, fucking absurd.


The group with most influence long calling for the dismemberment of Syria were and are Zionist Jews/neocons, and while the Saudis and Qataris also have influence, it is nothing like that of the Israel Lobby and a heavily Jewish media.

A pipeline through syria is absurd. Where do you from Syria? 500 miles of ocean? Seems a lot easier to just go through Turkey, and any pipeline from Qatar could as well go through Iraq, or to Iran. The Syrian pipeline narrative has never made any sense. Ask anyone pushing it where this pipeline is supposed to go from *crickets*

There were two natural gas pipeline scenarios, Qatar/Saudi Arabia pipeline and the Iranian pipeline. Syria wanted to go with the Iranian pipeline.

The USA supported Qatar/Saudi financing of the Syrian civil war. All three, the US. Qatar and Saudi Arabia supplied mercenaries, weapons and munitions.

Turkey was/is in a recreating the Ottoman empire mode because of it's crazy leader. He wanted parts of Syria, mainly the Turkman tribal regions which he has now deployed Turkey's army for long term occupation.

Why did the US become involved, a pipeline through Syria would block Russian natural gas supplies to Europe. A Qatar Syrian pipeline to Europe replaces the Russians natural gas as the sole natural gas supplier to Europe.

Very close, but no cigar, Ultra Deluxe.   The picture changed substantially

four and a half years ago when Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the fourth son

of the previous Emir, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani became the 8th Emir

of Qatar on 25 June 2013 after his father's abdication.


This was a very productive season for our friend, Vladimir Putin, who received

Edward Snowden in Moscow almost simultaneously with Tamim's succession.  

Tamim's father was of the old school and a loyal vassal of the Saudi Liege Lords.

Tamim was educated at Great Britain's Sherborne School

International College) in Dorset,and at Harrow School,

where he sat his A-Levels in 1997.He then attended the 

Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, graduating in 1998.

Sheikh Tamim promoted sport as part of Qatar's bid to

raise its international profile...


Under his guidance, Qatar won the rights to host the 2014

FINA Swimming World Championships and the 2022 FIFA

World Cup. Tamim is a member of the International Olympic

Committee and the National Olympic Committee chairman. 

He headed Doha's bid for the 2020 Olympics.  The country

will host the football World Cup in 2022. Qatar is expected

to spend about $100 billion on infrastructure to prepare for

the event.

If Putin has drawn Russia closer to Qatar and it's young Emir - and he has through

Iran and Turkey - this could be very good news for Julian Assange and his escape

from the Ecuadorian Embassy.  Because Tamim also

heads the Qatar Investment Authority board of directors. Under his leadership, the fund has invested billions in British businesses. It owns large stakes in Barclays BankSainsbury's, andHarrods. The fund also owns a share of Europe's fourth tallest building, the Shard.

But that's another story.


I have to repeat here what I have said hundreds of times before: none of us can

know what is really happening on the world stage by reading or listening

to stories in the MSM.  All we can do is try to make educated guesses from

what we know to be fait accompli.  Like Tamim's becoming Emir in June 2013

and the Saudi blockade of Qatar in June 2017.


If Tamim had any doubts as to which side to align with, this story of September 22,

2016 had to have settled it.

Russia: Mossad, other foreign agents killed in Aleppo strike

Citing 'battlefield sources,' state media says its warships bombed

30 officers from Israel, Qatar and Western countries.

According to the Arabic-language version of Russia’s Sputnik news

agency, some “30 Israeli and Western officers” died when they were

hit by three Kalibr cruise missiles fired by Russian warships in a

“foreign officers’ coordination operations room” in western

Aleppo, near Mount Simeon.

When Tamim heard how the Russian Kalibrs wove through the mountains near Aleppo

to hit the US, Israeli and Coalition operations room, it's not surprising he decided to 

join up with the RF. 



"There were two natural gas pipeline scenarios,

Qatar/Saudi Arabia pipeline and the Iranian pipeline.

Syria wanted to go with the Iranian pipeline."

Now, there is no Qatari/Saudi Arabia pipeline and the Iranian

pipeline will be the Iranian/Qatari pipeline.

We really have no idea to what degree American interference in Syria differs between Obama and Trump because Obama oversaw so many covert operations there including support for Al Qaeda in hope that they would create an "Islamic State."


Declassified 2012 DIA Report:…


The US has no business in Syria but maybe knowing what's happening under Trump is an improvement over not knowing what's happening under Obama.

Right, but Trump has vastly expanded the footprint (at least 8 genuine bases) and number of spec ops.


Essentially, it is a flip flop - or rather a lie.  Trump’s Ziomasters want Syria balkanized (and part of that is preventing an Iranian pipeline) and have said as much for years.

Bush to Obama to Trump...  the thread of Zionist/MIC/banker control runs through them all while the hoi polloi worry about transgender bathrooms and kneeling meatwads.

BS, if Assange is released it's probably a hands off order given from top government officials. Assange is important to Trump, by now the congressman who met with Assange and railed against Chief of Staff Kelly blocking the information about how Assange can help the president and how Assange's arch enemy is Clinton, well, Assange is being released to broadcast and broadcast about the evil witch Clinton. Assange is GREAT support for Trump and Trump didn't even know it because Kelly blocked it. Trump is working to FREE ASSANGE.

Well, see? They "grant him citizenship" just to oust him, then he is off-ed by a faceless stooge of the Deep State. We never see a body, nor do we ever see him again between now and him actually leaving the embassy.

This is another kernel of info to help us understand that he will be leaving soon and that he is not a well-liked man. A lie. He is loved more than any King on this globe. This story is designed to malign us to him.

Julian, in my humble opinion, is dead. To God, I pray that I am wrong. We have no proof of life following his twitter feed going off a few weeks ago. None.

The dead man switch cannot be trusted and we know it isn't him. What came up following the blackout was certainly not him. Twitter cannot be trusted. We know that.

Before any of us gets excited, there is absolutely no evidence that Julian is alive. None. His twitter has been taken over by posers.

Until Pam Anderson or someone that Julian trusts sees him and talks to him and provides us with proof of life, Julian must be considered dead.

I would not be surprised if this new citizenship ploy is just a mechanism for Ecuador to save face (not publicly throw him out) and he is "killed" by a patsy, or other CIA/Mossad stooge while en route to a new home.

I'd love to be wrong on this, but nothing can be trusted coming from him after the twitter feed went dark and a fake popped up in his place.

The crazy hasn't even started yet

While it's easy for truthers to feel sympathy for Wikileaks, there is practically no doubt Assange is an agent based on access to information alone; much less the widespread media coverage- which is not given to those TPTB don't want promoted

Any 'death' of an agent like Assange is just as likely to be hoaxed

Unlike a few posters here, I don't believe in heroes.....

There is no evidence that he is alive. I see that the troll army is out in spades. Must have touched a nerve.

A pretty good job at narrative steering has been done since Julian went dark a few weeks ago. The attempt to mimic Julian's mannerisms and patterns of tweets has been pretty good.

The tell is the troll army being deployed to counter anyone who notices.

I wonder where he will go?  That has to have been hell, being stuck in a room in a small embassy for six fucking years.  Hope he enjoys freedom and doesn't end up locked in a cage!

Diplomatic immunity. Brilliant! That would allow him safe passage.
