Julian Assange is a hero

By Christopher R Rice

Julian Assange is a hero. Who cares what the intelligence community thinks. They are obviously not that intelligent if they keep getting hacked.

If the intelligence community has a problem with Assange than the American people have a problem with our intelligence community. It means the Democrats are using the US intelligence community against the American people.

Americans trust Assange. The US Intelligence Agencies have been compromised and are corrupt agencies.

The information Assange leaked was of illegal operations of the government and their agencies, they call Assange a traitor for sharing the truth with the public and yet the people who’s crimes he exposed are all still walking free.

The UK lost, appealed, and – lost again. The UN instructed the UK and Sweden to take immediate steps to ensure Mr. Assange’s liberty, protection, and enjoyment of fundamental human rights. No steps have been taken, jeopardizing Mr. Assange’s life, health and physical integrity, and undermining the UN system of human rights protection.

Now, the United Nations has found that the United Kingdom’s request for review of this decision (filed on March 24) was inadmissible; the United Kingdom has now reached the end of the road in its attempt to overturn the ruling. As a member of the Security Council and the United Nations Human
Rights Council, the United Kingdom must respect its commitment to the United Nations, and release Mr. Assange immediately. Now, more than ever, moral leadership is required; maintaining Mr. Assange’s effective detention (which stands at six years as of 7 December, 2016) will only serve to green light future abuses against defenders of free speech and human rights.

Mr. Assange stated “Now that all appeals are exhausted I expect that the UK and Sweden will comply with their international obligations and set me free. It is an obvious and grotesque injustice to detain someone for six years who hasn’t even been charged with an offense.”

Regardless of how you feel about Assange, Wikileaks, or what they choose to release, everyone should be frightened by what appears to be an aggressive government action attempting to silence free speech and suppress important work for transparency and accountability.

The public deserves to know what is happening to Julian Assange. Right now. This affects all of us, and the future of our democracy.

Wikileaks is reporting that their founder Julian Assange’s internet connection “has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans.”

Assange has spent years in the embassy of Ecuador. Read Timeline to learn the key developments in the case. Journalist John Pilger’s article ’Julian Assange: The Untold Story Of An Epic Struggle For Justice’ is to date one of the best accounts of the miscarriages against Assange in this case. More.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed by President Donald Trump has issued arrest warrants for Julian Assange and WikiLeaks reporters

The former British ambassador to Cuba, Paul Webster Hare, wants the British police to invade the Ecuadorian embassy and ferret out Julian Assange – in the name of preserving diplomacy:

“The Ecuadorians have partially cut Assange’s access to the Internet – perhaps until after the election. But that will not solve the problem.

“Now the U.K. legal authorities have to decide whether the precedents Assange has set in handling “stolen” property while residing in a diplomatic mission is sufficient reason to rescind temporarily the inviolable status of Ecuador’s mission.”

In the Bizarro World we live in today, invading the inviolable territory of an embassy is “diplomacy pushing back,” as Ambassador Hare puts it. He goes on to burble: “It’s time for diplomacy to reassert itself in a world that seems increasingly willing to reject consensus-building in favor of stoking nationalist fervor.”

Whatever that means.

So what, exactly, is the rationale for invading what is legally Ecuadorian territory? According to Hare, WikiLeaks has been picking on the United States exclusively, and so it doesn’t really qualify as an advocate of transparency:

“To have an impact, transparency must be applied to every state – not used to bludgeon just one. If it wants to be valued as a window into duplicitous diplomacy, then WikiLeaks should probe the communications of all states.”

Where has the Ambassador been since 2008? As The New Yorker pointed out:

“In December, 2006, WikiLeaks posted its first document: a ‘secret decision,’ signed by Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys, a Somali rebel leader for the Islamic Courts Union, that had been culled from traffic passing through the Tor network to China. The document called for the execution of government officials by hiring ‘criminals’ as hit men.”

Assange followed that up by exposing how Kenyan leader Daniel arap Moi had looted his own country. That year, everything from illegal activities engaged in by Cayman Islands banks to the membership lists of the far-right British National Party found their way to the pages of WikiLeaks. The next year it released intercepted phone conversations that exposed the role played by Peruvian politicians who enriched themselves in the “Petrogate” scandal. The first news of a major nuclear accident at the Iranian nuclear facility at Natanz was revealed by WikiLeaks. That year also featured a number of other revelations involving governments other than that of the United States, but let’s move on to some of the major ones in subsequent years: in 2012, WikiLeaks published the Syria files, a compendium of millions of emails sent and received by Syrian government officials and state-owned companies: in 2015, WikiLeaks published the Saudi cables, consisting of thousands of emails, cables, and memoranda by Saudi government officials.

There’s plenty more, but you get the idea. The Ambassador has his head so far up his ass that he can’t think straight. That’s why he’s able to write the following:

“Assange’s actions, if not challenged, threaten core elements of diplomatic practice – like the right of diplomats to secure and unfettered communications – and could negatively impact how diplomacy is practiced around the world.”

What could “negatively impact how diplomacy is practiced around the world” more than the invasion of a country’s embassy by the host nation? Not even the Soviet Union and its Eastern European satellites undertook such an action: when Cardinal Josef Mindszenty was given asylum in the US embassy in Budapest after the crushing of the Hungarian Revolution in 1956, he stayed there for fifteen years, and the Communists didn’t dare touch him. That’s because even they recognized that to violate the sanctity of an embassy would have catastrophic consequences – but not Ambassador Hare. And he has the nerve to invoke the virtues of “diplomacy”!

Hare goes on to speculate that the Ecuadorian government, whose president, Rafael Correa, supports Hillary Clinton and despises Donald Trump, may soon tire of its troublesome guest: like the slimeball he is, Hare says this is “a delicious irony.” One can imagine him licking his lips as he wrote this.

On 3 July 2018, a judge in Ecuador ordered the arrest of Correa after he failed to appear in court during a trial surrounding the kidnapping of a political opponent. Correa, who lived in Belgium at the time, denied the allegations regarding the kidnapping.

And it’s true: Ecuador’s new president has lashed out at WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange even as he contends his government is working behind the scenes to help him out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

Lenin Moreno said in a televised interview that Assange had become “more than a nuisance” after he violated terms of his asylum by interfering in other countries’ political affairs.

Ecuador may very well kick Assange out into the street, where the British police have been waiting for years to grab him. The heroic founder of WikiLeaks has never been in greater danger. It’s been reported that Hillary said: “Can’t we just drone this guy?”

The great irony is Donald Trump was elected President but Assange is still not free. It’s hard to imagine Trump putting pressure on the Brits to make him leave the embassy after all, didn’t Trump declare “I love WikiLeaks!”?

We’re living in a Bizarro World, where up is down, right is left, a diplomat argues against the inviolability of embassies, and now after handing the white house to the Republicans they now seek Assange’s arrest.  Yes, it’s weird, but you know what? I kind of like it this way.

From CBS: Assange confirmed late last year that WikiLeaks was approached by a data firm working for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign during the 2016 election.

Assange said on Twitter that Cambridge Analytica had reached out to his group prior to November 2016.

He issued the tweet after news website The Daily Beast reported that Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix reached out to Assange during the presidential campaign about the possible release of 33,000 of Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. Those emails have never been publicly released.

Cambridge Analytica, which uses data mining to microtarget ads based on personality, claimed after the election that it had played a key role in Mr. Trump’s victory. The company was hired by Mr. Trump’s digital director Brad Parscale, although he told “60 Minutes” last month that he doesn’t believe their methods were so essential. According to Open Secrets, the Trump campaign paid Cambridge Analytica $5.9 million during the campaign.

The Trump campaign has long denied any connection with WikiLeaks, although Mr. Trump praised the entity during the campaign and even said he “loved” WikiLeaks.

U.S. Preps Arrest Warrant for Assange
One man has risked his own life for millions to be enlightened.

Whistleblowers are always needed to fend against corruption, what is needed now is a safe secure place for a whistleblower to go with their information without fear for their job, or worse fear for their (and/or their loved one’s) life.

Wikileaks record is reliable 100% of the time, why do we blame those who publish/expose the lies.

JFK was murdered in cold blood before our very eyes and the intelligent community who is responsible still has not released all of the information over 50 years later. The intelligence community failed to protect the president, failed to protect Americans on 9/11, failed to protect us during the Boston Marathon bombing, failed to protect anyone during the Las Vegas massacre, etc. So we owe them nothing.

Although the Tea Party is not a party in the classic sense of the word, research has shown that members of the Tea Party Caucus vote like a third party in Congress. Source: Wikipedia

What is the Tea Party? The Tea Party is the alt-right of the Republican party. And they have hijacked the Republican party and the country. My whole life I’ve watched as the Republicans pulled the Democrats further and further to the right. Which has created a one party system, of, for and by the super rich. With no one standing up for the working man.

Obama promised “change” but only maintained the status quo. Trump promises the same but his policies are requiring bailouts already, what’s next? And even if Trump does succeed his policies will only serve to make the rich a lot richer and the poor even poorer. And I’m tired of watching American voters get duped by these pied pipers.

Every time Trump distracts the national media with one of his ass clown acts you can bet that an environmental protection was just put on the chopping block. Along with your retirement, clean air, clean water, your pensions, workers rights and consumer protections. And all in the name of freeing up big business under the con game that the corporations responsible for raping the environment will now protect it at their own expense. Much like the tax cuts for the super rich will trickle down lies.
