What you know and how you feel about this image defines your politics, at a crucial moment in history. You are either fighting for human rights, such as free speech & the public’s right to know, or you are in bed with the fascists. Not caring puts you in the latter camp, by default.
Julian Assange is being charged by the US Department of Justice with “conspiracy to commit computer intrusion,” alleging he helped US Army intelligence analyst Bradley/Chelsea Manning hack into a US government computer network storing classified material, back in March 2010.
The evidence they have is secret, and no one outside the deep state has seen it. Their idea is that it stays that way, with a secret trial & conviction in a kangaroo court. Most legal experts agree the DOJ’s case against Assange is weak, and would be defeated easily in open court, so “national security” become Trump’s trump card.
This embassy stand-off couldn’t go on forever, so now it is up to socialists to unite the people and free Julian Assange.
An anonymous whore for US/UK imperialism, cowardly speaking through her attorney Elisabeth Massi Fritz, stated to the media this morning, “We will do everything we can to get the prosecutors to reopen the Swedish investigation so that Assange can be extradited to Sweden and be prosecuted for rape. As long as the statute of limitations has not expired my client has hope for restitution.”
The original rape charges against Assange were dropped years ago, due to insufficient evidence, after an extensive investigation by a Swedish prosecutor. The whole ordeal reeked of a classic “honey trap” by the CIA, which is a world-wide leader in these types of dirty-tricks operations, along with media manipulation & psy-ops. This is the reason Julian Assange took asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in the first place.
The Big Lie the CIA, DOJ & Trump team are using now, is to accuse Assange & Manning of hacking into US intelligence computers, to reveal that the NSA/CIA/FBI/etc have already hacked into every American’s internet devices & have all their online activity in storage, without their knowledge or consent.
The #MeToo Democrats are just as complicit in this frame-up & travesty-of-justice as the Trump Republicans. Anything that distracts from the content of the Wikileaks releases is fake news.
Without Wikileaks & Julian Assange, the world would not know about US wars crimes in Iraq (above) & Afghanistan, ubiquitous NSA spying, and the DNC email leaks that proved the 2016 Democratic primary was rigged for Hillary Clinton, the favored candidate of Wall Street.
As for the DNC email leaks, it was surely NOT Vladimir Putin or any Russian agent, but most-likely DNC staffer Seth Rich. The DNC email leaks occurred in June, and Rich was murdered on July 10, 2016, about a block from his apartment in Washington, D.C. No money or jewelry was stolen, in what appears to be a profession hit. The case is still official unsolved.
Wikileaks published the DNC emails on July 22, after the New York Times, Washington Post, and all the rest refused. In the ensuing months, several attorneys in then-DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district in south Florida were murdered under suspicious circumstances, while investigating voter fraud. These murders also remain unsolved. That’s a taste of how high this conspiracy extends, and these are the methods they will use to hide the truth from the public, in order to stay in power.
The media, politicians and wealthy elite don’t want people to understand this, for good reason. It challenges their authority, and powerful people get nasty about that. This is what the persecution of Julian Assange has been about from the start. Only fierce & determined resistance will win his freedom, which will be a victory for all who demand truth and value the right to know.
