Julian Assange jailed but defiant as extradition battle begins

  • Published on Apr 12, 2019
  • The Justice Department may have to fight for months or even years to bring Julian Assange to the U.S. British police arrested the WikiLeaks founder at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London Thursday after his diplomatic asylum was removed. Assange faces a charge of conspiring with Chelsea Manning to hack Pentagon computers in 2010. Imtiaz Tyab reports.

    Assange is a more important and better person than anyone who will be jailing or judging him.
    Our world is upside down people.
    But, it's crazy to understand that we the people could have him free in a week if we all chose to.
    IF, (and of course it will never happen), but IF every single person who respects him, called their reps and congress people and simply stated that they will be staying home from work until he is released.

    Can you even imagine half of all jobs not being done? This country would shut down in 3 days.
    No food delivered into New York City for 3 days shuts it down. I could go for 6 months easy without a paycheck and it would an awesome thing to watch our so called leaders beg people to return to work.
    After he is out, we could just not go back for a few more days, just to let it sink in.
    Be a good movie plot.

    It wasn't random Julian Assange was arrested
    clutching a book. He didn't just happen to be
    reading Gore Vidal when the police arrived. It's no
    coincidence that he made sure that the cover of
    the book was visible for all the world's journalists
    to see and photograph.
    Immediately after they loaded Assange into a van
    a handful people in places around the world left
    their homes and headed to their various local
    bookstores and libraries, each clutching a piece of
    paper with a series of numbers which they
    received from Assange long ago.
    They had the cyphers all along, but were waiting
    on the key.

    well if you thought your rights were slim before, guess what if Julian gets charged with conspiracy to hack Big Gov. computers there goes the 1st ammendment out the window as well, he only reported the facts he recieved from a hacker, that is what a truth reporter is supposed to do, it is cutting the toung out of free speaking journalism, bad enough they already misinform and fake debunk everything to the point of utter confusion, but now they step up and just show if you report truth you will be shut up into a cell to forever shut you up, make no mistake, this is an assault on every last standing honest human American.

    From Manning's Wikipedia article:
    "Assigned in 2009 to an Army unit in Iraq as an intelligence analyst, Manning had access to classified databases. "
    As an analyst with TS/SCI access, there was no need to hack anything. He read traffic day in and day out and was tasked to make sense of it. The indictment that Assange helped him "hack" a database is beyond ridiculous to anyone who has ever worked in a SCIF. This was the politicized Obama DOJ abusing its authority to oppress a troublesome dissident in Assange. The persons who signed the indictment should themselves be indicted for abuse of authority.
    Assange will be completely cleared by President Trump, GPE, the same president who just trolled you into a predictable reaction. Assange will declare that Seth Rich provided the DNC emails, corroborating evidence, either material or through testimony of DOJ/FBI criminals who have turned state's evidence, will be provided to prove Assange right, and a hammer the size of Jupiter will come down on all of those involved, including agents of influence in the press.

The DNC brought in Crowdstrike to "verify" that the Russians hacked them. You can research Crowdstrike and its Ukrainian operators on your own. This "RUSSIA!!" business got started after Seth Rich's death (an attempt to cover??). Assange all but declared that Rich was the source when he pointed out that whistleblowers have to be careful, and pointed out the death of Seth Rich. I could go on. Your turn DD, whatchagot?

      H Pn - It will take much longer than that, but he clearly wasn’t thinking how best to escape the clutches of the eagle. He wasn’t indicted during the Obama administration. Had he faced the music in Sweden, he would be home free today. On the other hand, he wants nothing more than to be a martyr, with mobs in the streets shouting in his defense. I think he’s loving the attention.

    After all the information Wikileaks has released, what has changed? Most people are asleep and live in a dream world of slavery to their masters no matter what information is released. Assange is a whipping boy and is being used to keep the sheep in line.

      Torture was approved by higher ups, but cigarette girl and her boy friend were the only ones that did time. Things may or may not change for the better (What ever that is?), but the corporate media no longer has control of the narrative. The real problem is that no one is in control of anything. People and groups only have influence. Will humanity drive off a cliff? Maybe, but how the future turns out is what we deserve as a species.

      +See More Toys did you think abuse of prisoners of war was something new, or exclusive to the United States?
      pretty sure she went to jail for it.
      Why no mention of Russia with the Panama papers? 🙈
      did you also think the accidental killing of civilians during war was something new? (yeah, I saw the video, they didn't know until it was too late that they were civilians).
      I think what you're trying to say is that there were really no game changers.

    • See More Toys

      Well, I have only read and heard surmised versions of the tons of information that Wikileaks released. Remember "Cigarette Girl" from that Iraq prison? The Panama Papers and the offshoring of massive wealth to avoid US taxes? The real story is that so much information was released that it was kind of like a very nice but large meal. Much to large to eat it all at once, but if you eat as much as you can, you get a bellyache. The corporate media has used that to their advantage. Also, Wikileaks released WORDS and not video or pictures (except those US helicopter guys killing people for fun.) Mass media needs the simplicity of photos and video to dumb stuff down.
