"This case is a retribution. It is a signal to all of you that if you expose the interests that are driving war they will come after you..."

"... they will put you in prison and will try to kill you. The Biden administration should not issue assurances. They should drop this shameful case that should never have been brought."

I'm pretty sure, not positive, that I agree.

The global coordination by multiple G7 countries and treatment of Assange is proof - among so many other proofs - that a deep and unelected trans-national intelligence apparatus exists and actually runs things in the West's 'liberal' democracies. This has nothing to do with republicans or democrats, or dweebish far-left/right dialectic, and everything to do with a regulatory ratchet that only ever turns in one direction....either for their interests or against their enemies.

Schumer to Trump and by extension Assange: "The intelligence community has six ways from Sunday to get you."

Joe Smith said...

Assange is a journalist who published information that damaged the regime and we are all more aware because of it.

He should get a medal.

If he's smart, there is a dead-man's switch that will release a lot of inconvenient information should he be assassinated like Epstein...

Enigma said...

Have the Deep State people with their fingers in Ukraine and Obama's ventures been exerting pressure to keep Assange and Snowden stigmatized as evildoers and quiet? Why did the left flip-flop about the expansion of post-9/11 "NeoCon" national security laws in just 8 years? How did Jeffrey Epstein gain access to all those Eyes Wide Shut people, and how did he get those neck injuries? And let's not forget, who killed JFK and MLK Jr?

We got a global government, but it seems to be a global mafia instead of public voting body.

I thought Trump pardoned him?

Aggie said...

High time the persecution campaign was taken off the road. I'm not sure a 'dead man' switch for data dumps would help, given the amount of government overreach that presently exists on the internet, one way or the other, but all of them concentrated with precisely the wrong, most untrustworthy people.

Enigma said...

@Howard: I thought Trump pardoned him?

Trump broached the idea of a pardon but got slammed hard by the Intelligence Community and Deep State operatives. In due course this flowed together with his poking into Ukraine, the 51 highly-paid doofuses who denied the reality of Hunter's laptop, and other defensive cover-up efforts by our Keystone Kops government.

The corrupt right, too. Or, to be succinct, "the right, too."

This is encouraging, but I can't assume this is the first step in his being freed from incarceration and from all legal sanctions against him. I will hold some small hope, however, more than I had previously.

Interested Bystander said...

Assange has spent over 10 years in isolation. He's dead broke and his friends have for the most part deserted him, fearing govt. retribution. So what is to be gained by further persecution, um, prosecution? Nothing. Leave the guy alone. Let him get on with his life.

Joe Biden, America's Putin said...

Trump should have pardoned Assange, Howard.

That he didn't was probably due to the same insider frauds telling Mr. Trump to let Hillary off the hook.

Trump often listens to the wrong people. your people.

Michael K said...

Like "Conspiracy Theories" that turn out to be true in a year, Assange has been right more often than not. Hence he must be punished.

Real American said...

Assange's argument is that journalists are free to commit crimes in pursuit of their story. He is accused of being an accomplice to the theft, not just a recipient of leaked government documents. Running away and hiding is evidence of guilt.

Mind your own business said...

Let us see if the UK has enough soverignty left to tell the US to piss off. I doubt it, but it would be a pleasant surprise.

The US vendetta against Assange will be another historical blot on America's deeply flawed Deep State.

What if we're the bad guys?

traditionalguy said...

The man who knew too much. Assange is a dead man. No one will stand up for him in fear of the 6 ways from Sunday guys destroying them.

Speak for yourself...

All government is Mafia.

"Assange's argument is that journalists are free to commit crimes in pursuit of their story. He is accused of being an accomplice to the theft, not just a recipient of leaked government documents. Running away and hiding is evidence of guilt."

That is not his argument. His argument is that journalists have always received secret information and documents from those who wish to reveal secrets, and the First Amendment has protected them in publishing secret information. He also denies he participated in the theft of documents. Of course, our government claims he participated in the thefts in order to get around the First Amendment's protection and to defame Assange. "Running away and hiding" reflected Assange's astute awareness (as with Snowden) that the US is a cruel and vindictive state, determined to crush those who endanger the empire's prerogatives, using any tactics of punishment necessary, (not exempting murder).

We are. No "if" about it.

Jupiter said...

'What if we're the bad guys?'

I am nonplussed to find myself on the same side as Cookie, and instructed to speak for myself, by Joe Smith. Cookie, don't you think it depends upon who you mean by "we"?

And for Joe Smith;
See better, Lear, and let me still remain
The true blank of thine eye.
