ASSANGE COLLARED

By Pete Moore On April 11th, 2019

Good news for the Met Police budget. Despite moaning about so-called austerity, they still had tens of millions to post a permanent guard outside the Ecuadorean Embassy.

Not such good news for Assange of course. The Swedes have said they’ll revisit the case made against him there. American authorities are rather keen to get hold of him for spilling what they’ve been up to.

He won’t be a free man for a long, long time.

  1. More ‘alternative facts’

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-wikileaks-julian-assange-2016-us-election-emails-arrest-video-a8865821.html?fbclid=IwAR3XYpCRnVK3SRipDuFTenHL_i7iW6gsY5WsDlg8eGzSjVv49-DTkbkqci8

  2. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy

  3. All the wikileaks stuff that the left is annoyed about – was any of the material ‘fake’ or untrue?

    In any case, Trump is now shown to be fake and untrue – so much for ‘democracy’.

  4. Trump is now shown to be fake and untrue

    Yes, that was clear to many of us around 1991.

    Sorry you got snookered.

  5. Phantom –

    Assange has revealed war crimes, surveillance abuses, political corruption, media malfeasance and more, not just in the US but around the world.

    Why don’t you want us knowing about such things?

  6. He has endangered the good work of US informants, allies, troops and spies, as well as human rights activists in various rough places

    He’s not a good guy and if he spends the next 25 years in prison well that’s an awful shame

  7. It was insane to watch the number of police take him out and put him in the van. As far as I know he hasn’t broken any law in the UK, and as far as I believe he hasn’t broken the law in Sweden either.

  8. He’s not a good guy and if he spends the next 25 years in prison well that’s an awful shame

    “He exposed, in 2016, how wildly corrupt the Democrats and Clintons are. That’s why the American left hates him. If he stuck to GWB-era war crimes we’d love him.”

  9. No real American likes him.

    He’s a very bad guy.

    Well, perhaps he started out meaning what he said and just got cornered by the system, a system which really does want you and me gone, and replaced by lettuce-people…..

    https://dailystormer.name/new-caravan-of-invaders-leaves-honduras-heads-to-the-us-to-work-in-trumps-foreigners-only-factories/

    Daily Mail:

    Nearly one thousand people gathered in the Honduran town of San Pedro Sula on Tuesday evening to form a new caravan bound for the US border.

    The hopeful migrants first mobilized on social media, their number taking authorities by surprise as previous online appeals have failed to garner a significant response.

    ‘There are more than 800, almost a thousand,’ a police official told AFP.

    Among the bustling crowd were a number of families with young children seeking to escape the rising violent crime and unemployment levels currently blighting the Central American country.

    Americans shall find that these invaders are the blight of their own land, and shall now become the new blight of the US.

    lol just kidding the Jews really want you dead. The economy is just the scapegoat.

    Never forget that you, your family, and your people are all that matters.

    The retarded economy can go fuck itself.

    As long as we’re here and we’re a people, we can unfuck it or create a better system.

  11. He has endangered the good work of US informants, allies, troops and spies, as well as human rights activists in various rough places

    OK – I seem to have missed that in the ‘wikileaks’. Can you provide either links, or pointers which I can check myself?

    Being a prick doesn’t mean you spend years in prison. If only popular people had rights then they wouldn’t be rights, they’d be privileges.

    Assange published classified information. So did Ben Bradlee. Should he have had his collar felt by the Nixon administration?

  13. Allan

    Trump is sincere on the matter of immigration and about trade. He’s a fake on most all other matters but he is straight on those two things.

    He doesn’t know much about the complexities of trade, but he’s sincere on it.

    On illegal immigration etc, he has run up against a Democrat party that is pro open borders and against Democrat type judges who wish to tie him up in knots on the matter.

  14. Assange published classified information.

    He has endangered the good work of US informants, allies, troops and spies, as well as human rights activists in various rough places

    On the first one, I believe that it was classified information that revealed dishonesty and subterfuge which is why it was classified, and on the second one I’m still none-the-wiser

  15. On illegal immigration etc, he has run up against a Democrat party that is pro open borders and against Democrat type judges who wish to tie him up in knots on the matter.

    So the outcome of an electoral process was thwarted by the system, like Brexit?

  16. So the outcome of an electoral process was thwarted by the system, like Brexit?


    Trump is a minority candidate who snuck in on a technicality.

    And he’s not a dictator.

    The Congress, with its elected Democratic Representatives and Senators is co-equal to him.

  17. Trump is a minority candidate who snuck in on a technicality.

    Did that not happen before? Oh yes – so it did, but Bill Clinton was ‘approved’. One would think that a President of the US would have sufficient power to carry out the central plank on which he was elected otherwise, why bother with the charade?

    Anyway, back to…….

    He has endangered the good work of US informants, allies, troops and spies, as well as human rights activists in various rough places

  18. “Oh yes – so it did, but Bill Clinton was ‘approved’. One would think that a President of the US would have sufficient power to carry out the central plank on which he was elected otherwise, why bother with the charade?”

    Tell us how well Bill Clinton’s health care plan went.

  19. Bill Clinton got the largest number of votes each time he ran.

    Trump did not. He was the beneficiary of a rigged system.

  20. He won’t be a free man for a long, long time.

    I’m not so sure about that. I have a sneaking suspicion that Trump will not pursue the extradition. He owes Assange big time for the Hillary emails leak in 2016 and he will not especially want Assange to have his day in court for fear of what else he might spill the beans on. Nigel Farage was spotted coming out of the embassy two years ago, the day after he returned from the states. The speculation is that he was conveying a message from Trump.

    This extradition could be like the Mexico wall.

  21. Trump denied any link to Wikileaks. Assange confirmed no link with Trump.

    Mueller found no link – none, zilch, zero, nada – between Trump and Wikileaks.

    Peter, why persist in these fantasies? It’s undignified.

  22. Trump was greatly helped by Putin whose goons hacked the Democrat email server and Assange who dripped out the hack results from June – October to cause maximum damage to Clinton. It is not too fanciful to claim that this episode swung the election.

    Trump could easily get his sock puppet AG to abandon the extradition on some spurious basis. Watch this space.

  23. Well if Trump denied it, That’s that

  24. Yes Phantom, we know he never lies.

  25. Mommy why did they drag Santa from that building….. that’s what he looked like.

    I think he should just be set free to walk the streets….. 😉

  26. Bad guy who pretends to be good and is supported by congenital liars like Allan is enough route to his comeuppance. Who is leaking now biatch?

  27. En route.

  28. congenital liars like Allan……..

    Ah yes – I really do believe that 6 million jews were murdered in a microwave oven, and that Ann Frank wrote her own book 🙂

    I’ve no idea who or what Assange is, and his absolute avoidance of certain topics raises suspicion – or then again, he knows better than to mention jews, Israel, 9/11 etc.

    What I saw from RT footage as linked below is a non-violent man being taken out of a piece of foreign land by several smirking British police and carted off for processing. Here’s an accurate view of these events and their significance……..

    https://dailystormer.name/trump-i-know-nothing-about-wikileaks/

    I really thought that Trump was going to blow the lid on the whole DNC/Seth Rich thing during the campaign.

    But to even know about the Hillary Clinton ordering a hit on Seth Rich for leaking the DNC dirt to Assange as revenge for screwing over Bernie Sanders theory, Trump would have had to be capable of using the internet.

    Few people his age use the internet as a source of research or information.

    I don’t think Trump read much about the contents of the emails (so that rules out him being woke on #pizzagate) but Bannon or Miller probably did and they prodded the old man to say something about them from time to time, but that’s about the extent of Trump’s understanding of the situation, it seems.

    Either way, despite professing his admiration for WikiLeaks during the campaign and getting a huge boost from the whole debacle, Trump decided to return the favor with a betrayal.

    That Trump betrays his supporters is a given, fully confirmed.

  29. Phantom,

    No real American likes him.

    He’s a very bad guy.

    Wow phantom! You and Patrick have more in common than I thought.

  30. Patrick Van Roy,

    Mommy why did they drag Santa from that building….. that’s what he looked like.

    if he just put the Santa costume on, he could have snuck out of the embassy no problem last Christmas.

  31. Assange put American and other lives in danger.

    I’m not going to give him a medal for that

  32. I’m not talking about your opinion on Assange. I’m talking about your ‘no real American’ comment.

    The news

    “Julian Assange is the reason I put tape over my computer’s camera” – SERIOUSLY??

    https://www.digitalspy.com/tech/a795242/can-people-spy-on-me-through-my-laptop-or-smartphone-camera/

    It’s not just your laptop you need to be worried about either. Scarily, connected baby monitors have repeatedly been the subjects of unlawful viewing, while the Edward Snowden leaks revealed that the NSA long ago gained backdoor access to the cameras within your iPhone or BlackBerry devices.

    https://www.spiegel.de/international/world/privacy-scandal-nsa-can-spy-on-smart-phone-data-a-920971.html

    SPIEGEL has learned from internal NSA documents that the US intelligence agency has the capability of tapping user data from the iPhone, devices using Android as well as BlackBerry, a system previously believed to be highly secure.

    “internal NSA documents” – were those released by Wikileaks? No wonder all drones want Assange in jail. The main point is that it isn’t Assange’s crew that is hacking everybody’s privacy – it’s the ‘agencies’ who are doing it, and material released by Assange shows this to be the case. Phantom attempts to divert to Assange being the culprit, but facts show that it is not.

  35. You don’t want to trust too many actors

    Including Julian Assange, who abused Ecuadorian hospitality terribly

    He’s seriously messed up in the head

  36. There was once a time when many supported Assange, seeing him as a scourge of big governments and their abuses

    But he has been a one way actor, revealing US information but not Russian information, acting in concert with Russian intelligence, seeking to manipulate the US election process

  37. Phantom, on April 14th, 2019 at 6:07 PM Said:

    Who told you that?

    But he has been a one way actor, revealing US information but not Russian information, acting in concert with Russian intelligence, seeking to manipulate the US election process

    The information released by Assange shows that the US (and the west) is corrupt, financially and morally. We are told daily by the system that it isn’t and that democracy is supreme – yet the facts show that it is corrupt and beyond repair. As for Russia, I already know that it’s corrupt, so give me something that I don’t know:

    https://www.mintpressnews.com/john-pilger-julian-assange-arrest-warning-history/257337/

    The glimpse of Julian Assange being dragged from the Ecuadorean embassy in London is an emblem of the times. Might against right. Muscle against the law. Indecency against courage. Six policemen manhandled a sick journalist, his eyes wincing against his first natural light in almost seven years.

    That this outrage happened in the heart of London, in the land of Magna Carta, ought to shame and anger all who fear for “democratic” societies. Assange is a political refugee protected by international law, the recipient of asylum under a strict covenant to which Britain is a signatory. The United Nations made this clear in the legal ruling of its Working Party on Arbitrary Detention.

    But to hell with that. Let the thugs go in. Directed by the quasi fascists in Trump’s Washington, in league with Ecuador’s Lenin Moreno, a Latin American Judas and liar seeking to disguise his rancid regime, the British elite abandoned its last imperial myth: that of fairness and justice.

    Lenin Moreno?

    “The Assange case is a morally tangled web,” the paper opined (The Guardian). “He (Assange) believes in publishing things that should not be published …. But he has always shone a light on things that should never have been hidden.”

    These “things” are the truth about the homicidal way America conducts its colonial wars, the lies of the British Foreign Office in its denial of rights to vulnerable people, such as the Chagos Islanders, the expose of Hillary Clinton as a backer and beneficiary of jihadism in the Middle East, the detailed description of American ambassadors of how the governments in Syria and Venezuela might be overthrown, and much more. It all available on the WikiLeaks site.

    Phantom – who exactly did Assange’s revelations endanger? I’ve asked you for links etc. but you haven’t replied

  38. Let’s look at what are known to be facts, as linked to sources…….

    http://www.unz.com/article/after-7-years-of-deceptions-about-assange-the-us-readies-for-its-first-media-rendition/

    The political and media class crafted a narrative of half-truths about the sex charges Assange was under investigation for in Sweden. They overlooked the fact that Assange had been allowed to leave Sweden by the original investigator, who dropped the charges, only for them to be revived by another investigator with a well-documented political agenda.

    They failed to mention that Assange was always willing to be questioned by Swedish prosecutors in London, as had occurred in dozens of other cases involving extradition proceedings to Sweden. It was almost as if Swedish officials did not want to test the evidence they claimed to have in their possession.

    I wasn’t aware of any of that and, if you’re like Phantom and only get your news from CIA-approved outlets, you won’t know these things either.

    https://www.smh.com.au/technology/rape-case-reopened-against-assange-20100901-14nr9.html

    The case was dismissed last week by the chief prosecutor, Eva Finne, who overruled a lower-ranked prosecutor and said there was no reason to suspect Mr Assange had raped a Swedish woman who had reported him to police.

    The woman’s lawyer appealed against the decision and yesterday the Director of Public Prosecutions, Marianne Ny, decided to reopen the case.

    Ms Ny also said another complaint against Mr Assange should be investigated on suspicion of ”sexual coercion and sexual molestation”. That overruled a previous decision to investigate the case only as ”molestation”, which is not a sex offence under Swedish law.

    Strangely enough, “It is quite possible for Marianne Ny, the Swedish prosecutor who revived the case after Finne dismissed it, to travel the short distance to London to interview him. It has happened before in much less high-profile cases. She knows where to find him, after all.

    “But despite Ny’s aggressive pursuit of other angles to this case, she has dragged her feet for years over this simple and essential stage of her investigation to determine whether there is any substance to the claims against Assange.”

    The political and media establishment ignored the mounting evidence of a secret grand jury in Virginia formulating charges against Assange, and ridiculed Wikileaks’ concerns that the Swedish case might be cover for a more sinister attempt by the US to extradite Assange and lock him away in a high-security prison, as had happened to whistleblower Chelsea Manning.

    They belittled the 2016 verdict of a panel of United Nations legal scholars that the UK was “arbitrarily detaining” Assange. The media were more interested in the welfare of his cat.

    I didn’t know that either.

  39. Assange is a spy and should be treated as one. Period.

  40. Patrick Van Roy, on April 14th, 2019 at 6:58 PM Said:

    Assange is a spy and should be treated as one. Period.

    For whom is he spying? Who enagaged and paid him – provide some evidence?

    Anyway, the facts of the case are there to be seen, and I was as ignorant of them as Phantom, Patrick, mahons et al.

  41. I believe that the Ecuadorian government is saying that he abused their hospitality in multiple ways

  42. I believe that the new Ecuadorian government would say whatever it wants to say in order to get a $4.2 billion loan, with the usual ’emolliments’ to the government…..

    https://www.enca.com/business/imf-approves-42bn-loan-ecuador

    WASHINGTON – The International Monetary Fund on Monday approved a $4.2-billion, three-year loan for Ecuador, part of a broader aid package to help support the government’s economic reform program.

    The Washington-based lender agreed to the terms of the financing late last month, and the final approval of the IMF board on Monday releases the first installment of $652-million.

    IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the aid will support the government’s efforts to shore up its finances, including a wage “realignment,” gradual lowering of fuel subsidies, and reduction of public debt.

    Christine Lagarde – her corruption is well-known…..

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/dec/19/christine-lagarde-avoids-sentence-despite-guilty-verdict-in-negligence-trial

    Christine Lagarde has been found guilty of negligence in approving a massive payout of taxpayers’ money to controversial French businessman Bernard Tapie but avoided a jail sentence.

    Oops – my error. She was ‘negligent’ and not corrupt. The bribes ended up in the recipients’ hands through negligence and not by intent 🙂

    Lagarde was the finance minister under Nicolas Sarkozy between 2007 and 2011, when she became head of the IMF – replacing her disgraced compatriot Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who had been put on trial for attacking a New York hotel maid. She referred the case to a private arbitration panel, which awarded Tapie more than €400m. She was accused of “negligence with public money” for having paid up and not contested the award, which experts had advised against.

  43. Ah, so it’s a conspiracy.

    Good thing we have Allan to tell the true facts!

  44. Phantom – das Reich, das absolutely Reich. I provided the facts and you have provided nothing in return. There above, cohenciding with Assange’s arrest and removal from foreign soil in the land of Magna Carta, is $4.2 billion being allocated to Ecuador by a CEO who is corrupt negligent with large sums of money. Just step over it 🙂

  45. Phantom – you work in finance. What would be Lagarde’s cut from the deal, typically? And how much would end up in the pockets of Lenin? Your best estimate

  46. I’m not ignorant of anything…. his leaks got American assets killed.

    He’s on borrowed time.

  47. and it took him 4 years to come back but Tiger Woods won the Masters

  48. Patrick Van Roy, on April 14th, 2019 at 8:28 PM Said:

    I’m not ignorant of anything…. his leaks got American assets killed.

    Show me

  49. Patrick – as I stated at 6.30pm and 6.57pm, there was so much about the Assange affair of which I was ignorant and, since the arrest, I’ve had reason to read up on it. For you to state that you’re “not ignorant of anything” isn’t mere ignorance but culpable stupidity which would be criminalised in a healthy society. It’s not merely profound ignorance, but proud ignorance, and there’s no debating or discussion with that.

    Anyway, the facts as presented stand without challenge.

  50. 14 years…..

  51. Allan he’s a spy…. did he have information that didn’t belong to him…YES Did he publish that information…. YES

    He’s a spy, shoot him.
