A brutal irony: UK PM May, says “arrest of Assange proof no one is above the law”

Let us be perfectly perfectly clear here:

The life’s work of Julian Assange was to try and show how in fact all the elites were living and acting with perfect impunity from the law. The arrest and silencing of Assange is to make sure they can continue to do so. Wouldn’t we all love to know what Wikileaks had on the way May and her cohorts cheated the BREXIT process. And the secret dealings of the EU?

That, would be grounds for a highly justifiable revolution should the public ever be allowed to know how manipulated, deceived cheated and plotted against they are by these supranational orgs.

His name was Seth Rich.


There are already worthy and interesting comments questioning the label we might apply, or how we may think of Assange.

I don’t want to suggest how we should think of him. But I do think we should temper our decision based on some of the information that Lara Logan gives in this astonishing interview with mark Levine.

This isn’t verbatim as I saw this part days ago. But she said one thing that really got to me:

Quoting someone else, Gary Webb I think…

“…I realized that I did not get the Pulitzer Prize and do all these speaking tours because I am so great or my work is so profound, but because I never wrote anything good enough to be worth supressing”.

And THAT, is why I admire Mr. Assange.

(If anyone chooses to watch this interview and transcribe the quote accurately in the comments, I will replace it with the accurate one. But I think I caught the spirit of her remark. Its in the first 1/3 of the interview.)


Here is the actual excerpt:

  1. I am not sure what to think about Assange. Blog posters that I respect have told me he is a traitor. OTOH, he has released info that was crucial to our understanding of what the heck was going on in the DNC.
    I actually fall toward the hero side…
    I would really like to know who stole the DNC emails. Was it Seth Rich?

    • I know what you mean about Assange, I don’t know what to think about him.

      The best info I have is that Seth Rich stole the emails from the DNC and gave them to Assange. As to who murdered Seth Rich I think we all know who ordered the hit but the name of the hit man is not known. I have heard several names but don’t know if the hitman is one of those or not.

      • I think it may have been done by two Russian hit men. Of course I don’t know this for certain, but a short time after he was found dead, there was a witness report that these two hit men ( known to be used for nasty work by Dems) were near the scene. I paid little attention at the time, but two days later I began to get curious, so went back to locate that report and it had disappeared. It was posted on Reddit.

        • There are also reports about a DC Policeman with ties to Hillary and about an Emergency Room Doctor with ties to the Dems. Those are just the ones that sping to mind. That is why I didn’t name anyone.

  2. It is very, very frightening what is going on, as THE GOOD PEOPLE across the Western Hemisphere have almost no voice left to defend the truth. BUT…..the truth will come out eventually, it always does. Then it will be THE PEOPLES turn.

  3. Lara Lomer does a very good job of calling out the Propaganda Media for being over paid whores who don’t deserve the name of journalists.

    We are facing a crisis of massive proportional, one that will speed technological inovations are the many sides in the coming wars will compete to see who has the most and best weapons. It will change the course of humanity and head us in directions that most haven’t thought about.

  4. zero hedge – The DOJ’s Entire Case Against Assange Hinges On This One Critical Piece Of Evidence

    Assuming he is successfully extradited (legal experts say there is a chance he might be able to successfully fight extradition, despite the blatant antipathy expressed toward him by British judges), Julian Assange will stand trial in a courtroom in Alexandria, Virginia where prosecutors from the Eastern District of Virginia will try to prove that he broke US law by goading Chelsea Manning into turning over hundreds of thousands of classified documents.

    To recap: Prosecutors surprised Assange’s supporters when they revealed in their extradition warrant that, rather than pursuing him on espionage charges, or charges related to Wikileaks’ publication of the classified documents, only one charge had been levied against Assange: conspiracy to hack a government computer.

    In the Assange indictment, prosecutors claimed that after Manning had already handed over hundreds of thousands of documents to Wikileaks, Assange tried to help the former Army private and intelligence analyst crack a password that would have allowed her to access hundreds of thousands of documents.

    However, Assange never succeeded in cracking the password, at least not as far as prosecutors are aware. What he did allegedly do was conspire with Manning to transmit the documents she had succeeded in stealing, while – and this is key – encouraging Manning to turn over more documents when she expressed reluctance.

    To support its case, the government has obtained chat logs from March 2010 showing Manning communicating with a mysterious individual who alternatively went by the handles “Ox” and “pressassociation”. The government believes this user was Assange. After transmitting hundreds of thousands of war logs from Iraq and Afghanistan and detainee assessment briefs from Guantanamo Bay, Manning said her stash of secret documents had run dry.

    “After this upload, that’s all I really have got left.”

    To which her co-conspirator replied: “Curious eyes never run dry in my experience.”

    The indictment also references a claim made by Manning during her court martial statement that she had discussed the value of the Guantanamo detainee assessments with the person alleged to be Assange.

    “During my conversation with Nathaniel, I asked him if he thought the DABs were of any use to anyone. Nathaniel indicated, although he did not believe that they were of political significance, he did believe that they could be used to merge into the general historical account of what occurred at Guantanamo.”

    Manning added: “After this discussion, I decided to download the data.”

    That’s it.

    As for how they intend to conclusively prove that Assange was the individual who corresponded with Manning on the Jabber chat service they were using…well…that hasn’t yet been revealed.

    Meanwhile, Amnesty International has become the latest organization to warn the UK not to extradite Assange to the US, out of concern that he could face human rights violations while there, while adding that the legal mechanism that allowed British police to enter the embassy has not yet been made clear.

    “Amnesty International calls on the UK to refuse to extradite or send in any other manner Julian Assange to the USA where there is a very real risk that he could face human rights violations, including detention conditions that would violate the absolute prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment and an unfair trial followed by possible execution, due to his work with Wikileaks.

    “We are aware of allegations of rape and other sexual violence against Julian Assange, which should be properly investigated in a way that respects the rights of both the complainants and the accused and be brought to justice if there is sufficient evidence against him. If Sweden decides to pursue an extradition of Mr. Assange from the UK, there must be adequate assurances that he would not be extradited or otherwise sent to the USA.

    “It remains unclear what formal process took place to allow the UK authorities to enter the Ecuadorian embassy and detain Julian Assange, who had reportedly had his Ecuadorian citizenship suspended yesterday. We urge the UK authorities to comply with the assurances provided to Ecuador that he would not be sent anywhere he could face the death penalty, torture or other ill-treatment.”

    As the Assange’s legal team prepares to fight extradition, Manning is still sitting in a Virginia jail, after spending a month in solitary confinement, for refusing to cooperate with a grand jury, a tactic that the government is using to try and coerce answers out of her.

    But if there’s one takeaway from this case, it’s that the charges aren’t what’s important, as Tulsi Gabbard so eloquently pointed out.
    The arrest of JulianAssange is meant to send a message to all Americans and journalists: be quiet, behave, toe the line. Or you will pay the price.

  6. MSNBC – Why Assange’s Arrest Is A Huge Moment In The Russia Investigation

    Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah, New York Times Washington Correspondent Charlie Savage and former FBI Executive Assistant Director Bob Anderson join MTP Daily to discuss Julian Assange’s arrest and its connection to the Mueller investigation.

    • My favorite ruling on this subject came from a Coroners Jury in South Missouri in the 1920s, they said the man committed suicide by stabbing himself in the back with a bolt action rifle.

  7. @ Rita - you might need your proverbial vomit bucket for this one

    Hillary Clinton reacts to the arrest of Julian Assange

    • @ Martin 🙂 vomit bucket or ventilator 😉

      I have a picture (in my twitter arsenal) in which an uppety and posh dressed cat calls her butler with the caption reading:

      “”Jenkins prepare the finest carpet, I wish to vomit”

      (Unfortunately, luddite that I am, I don’t know how to post it here 🙁

    • Listening to this skanky hag droning on about people being held accountable causes me to reflexively gag look skyward for any thunderbolts.

      This hyper-corrupt Socialist traitor cannot be imprisoned soon enough. The damage done during her tenure in State was incalculable. As BH0’s Mini-Me, hers would have been a de facto third 0bama administration: Something a smaller or less well-chartered nation easily might not have survived.

      As it was, America narrowly avoided disaster after eight long years of presidential corruption, mind-bending in scope and scale.

      PS: Few things short of her stultifying 2016 election loss could remotely approach the retribution she’s due just for that condescending, £ü¢kïñg smarmy-ãss pedagogue tone she never £ü¢kïñg stops using.

      Only a terminal phase masochist could ever live through her cries of passion. One of the Gorgons would be more pleasant to mount.

      Something’s a dead cert: Rarely in modern history has a married couple (couple of what?) so richly, so very aptly, so unbelievably fittingly, deserved each other.

    Re: Gary Stephen Webb, author of “Kill the Messenger”. Died of Arkancide with the trademark suicide of TWO self-inflicted gunshots to the head.

    Lara Logan: Well, Gary Webb won the Pulitzer and then he was destroyed. This man killed himself, by … by the way, by shooting himself twice in the head. Which is quite an achievement, and ah … he said, ‘I was going, you know, to journalism colleges, and I was giving speeches, and I was getting awards and, you know, I was being lauded, and, and ah … and recognized by my whole profession, and then I realized what it was really about. It wasn’t because I was so great, and because my work was so good. It was ‘cause I’d never done, I’d never written anything important enough to suppress.’
