The Destruction of Julian Assange - The Big Picture

by Richard Dolan
April 13, 2019

"What we are seeing right now is a full spectrum push against anything alternative.


Their war against so-called fake news - the ultimate irony, since they have always been the main purveyors of a fake reality.


What they don't understand, or seem to anyway, is that when the legacy mainstream media fails us again and again and again, that organizations like WikiLeaks will arise.


People like Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden and Julian Assange will step up because, thank God, we still live in a world where there are brave people with integrity and who are willing to fight for the rest of us.

…They exist because the system we live in cannot help but create them. As long as we live in this new form of creeping totalitarianism, this system will produce resistance like that.


This is a fight that is far from over.


And the voices for freedom and human decency and the right to investigate your own government - those voices live on and they will not be silenced."
Richard Dolan



Julian Assange is one of the most important journalists in history.


The information that has been revealed via Wikileaks has become part of humanity's shared heritage of freedom of information.


His organization's track record of accuracy has been impeccable, far more accurate than the dishonest legacy/corporate/mainstream/establishment media has ever been.


For this reason, Assange has been in the crosshairs of the American national security state for a long time. Now it appears they have him.


This is one more battle in the long war to roll back the freedom of information people have won since the creation of the Internet.

The Age of Injustice
by Paul Craig Roberts
April 11, 2019

April 11, 2019, brought us a new word for Judas: 'Moreno'... the puppet president of Ecuador who sold Julian Assange to Washington for his 30 pieces of silver.

This morning's arrest of Assange inside the Ecuadoran embassy in London is the first stage in Washington's attempt to criminalize the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Washington's man in Quito said he revoked Assange's political asylum and Ecuadoran citizenship because Assange engaged in free speech.

As race and gender diverse police dragged Assange out of the embassy this morning, I reflected on the utter corruption of three governments:

...and their institutions.

The British police showed no shame as they carted Assange from his embassy prison of the last seven years to a British jail as a way station on the way to an American one.

  • If the British police had any integrity, the entire force would have called in sick.


  • If the British parliament had any integrity, they would have blocked London's contribution to Washington's upcoming show trial.

  • If the British had a prime minister instead of a Washington agent, Assange would have been released a long time ago, not held in de facto imprisonment until Washington found Moreno's price.

  • If the Ecuadoran ambassador in London had any integrity, he would have publicly resigned rather than call in the police to take Assange. Is the ambassador so soulless that he can live with himself as the man who helped Moreno dishonor the reputation of Ecuador?

  • If the Anglo-American journalists had any integrity, they would be up in arms over the criminalization of their profession.

    President Trump has survived a three-year ordeal similar to Assange's seven-year ordeal. Trump knows how corrupt US intelligence agencies and the U.S. Department of 'Justice' (sic) are.


  • If Trump had any integrity, he would bring the shameful and embarrassing persecution of Assange to an immediate end by issuing a pre-trial pardon. This would also end the illegal re-imprisonment of Manning.

But integrity is not something that thrives in Washington, or in London, or in Quito.

When the 'Justice' (sic) Department does not have a crime with which to charge its intended victim, the department trots out "conspiracy."


Assange is accused of being in a conspiracy with Manning to obtain and publicize secret government data, such as the film, which was already known to a Washington Post reporter who failed his newspaper and his profession by remaining silent, of U.S. soldiers committing extraordinary war crimes without remorse.


As a U.S. soldier, it was actually Manning's duty to report the crimes and the failure of U.S. troops to disobey unlawful orders.


Manning was supposed to report the crimes to his superiors, not to the public, but he knew the military had already covered up the massacre of journalists and civilians and did not want another My Lai-type event on its hands.

I don't believe the charge against Assange. If Wikileaks cracked the code for Manning, Wikileaks did not need Manning.

The alleged Grand Jury that allegedly produced the indictment was conducted in secret over many years as Washington searched for something that might be pinned on Assange.


If there actually was a grand jury, the jurors were devoid of integrity, but,

  • How do we know there was a 'grand jury'?


  • Why should we believe anything Washington says after "Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction," "Assad's use of chemical weapons against his own people," "Iranian nukes," "Russian invasion of Ukraine," "Russiagate," and on and on ad infinitum?


  • Why believe Washington is telling the truth this time?


  • As the grand jury was secret because of "national security," will the trial also be secret and the evidence secret?


  • Is what we have here a Star Chamber proceeding in which a person is indicted in secret and convicted in secret on secret evidence?

This is the procedure used by tyrannical governments who have no case against the person they intend to destroy.

The governments in Washington, London, and Quito are so shameless that they do not mind demonstrating to the entire world their lawlessness and lack of integrity.

Perhaps the rest of the world is itself so shameless that there will be no adverse consequences for Washington, London, and Quito.


On the other hand, perhaps

  • the frame-up of Assange

  • the Russiagate hoax

  • the shameless attempt to overthrow democracy in Venezuela and install Washington's agent as president of that country,

...will make it clear to all that "the free world" is led by a rogue and lawless government...


Washington is speeding up the decline of its empire as Washington makes it clear that Washington is worthy of no respect.

No confidence that justice will be served can be placed in any American trial. In Assange's trial justice is not possible.


With Assange convicted by the media, even a jury convinced of his innocence will convict him rather than face denunciation for freeing a "Russian spy."

Assange's conviction will make it impossible for media to report leaked information that is unfavorable to the government.


As the precedent expands, future prosecutors will claim the Assange case as a precedent for prosecuting critics of the government who will be charged with intended harm to the government.


The age of justice and accountable government is being brought to an end.



Paul Craig Roberts Interview Julian Assange Arrest, Brexit, Venezuela
by Jason Liosatos Outside The Box
April 11, 2019

"The police sent there seem to be enjoying themselves, in helping a criminal organization in Washington destroy a person…

Where was the British parliament? Silent. No integrity there.


Where was the person that called the prime minister? No integrity there. They're all working for Washington. They're all a part… they're all henchmen to send a man to the gallows.


If I'd been the Ecuadorian ambassador there and I got the orders from Judas to sell Julian Assange, I would have publicly resigned rather than dishonor myself to that extent.

So what we see here is everyone accepts our age of injustice.

It's acceptable to what are called the great democracies, the United States and the UK - it's acceptable to publicly help a criminal organization in Washington, frame up someone.


Indeed, it's acceptable apparently to the entirety of the presstittute media to criminalize journalism, because that's what's being done.


Journalism is being criminalized and the journalists are supporting the criminalization of their occupation.

So, if we look at it realistically we can see the beginnings of it becoming a crime to criticize a government, to reveal any information unfavorable to a government.

Now with Assange, the show trial will be that he was a spy and that he helped Manning hack the American system so that Manning could get the documents to release.


Well actually, if Manning didn't know how to get the documents and Wikileaks did know, Wikileaks wouldn't need Manning.


So the government's case makes no sense on it's face. It makes you wonder about the… secret American Grand Jury that came up with the indictment.


Not a single member of that jury has an ounce of integrity. They have criminalized the first amendment of the United States Constitution.


Clearly these people are devoid of all integrity…"

My talk with Paul Craig Roberts, secretary to the treasury with Ronald Reagan, about the brutal arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy today, we also discuss the suppression of freedom of speech, the Washington coup in Venezuela, and the Brexit facade.



John Pilger - Julian Assange Exposed US' 'KILL THEM ALL' Mentality!
by GoingUndergroundRT
April 13, 2019

"This is an assault on journalism. But, you know, more than that, it's an assault on citizenship, because it can happen to anybody right across the world.


It is saying that international law doesn't apply. Julian was an accredited beneficiary of the whole notion of asylum…

If a regime as mired in murk and corruption as the Lenin Moreno regime in Ecuador is today, can call in the police in any country to arrest asylum seekers, then think of all the historical examples…"
John Pilger



We speak to legendary journalist and film-maker John Pilger who discusses the arrest of Julian Assange after his asylum status was revoked by Lenin Moreno of Ecuador and subsequent removal from the Ecuadorian Embassy.


He discusses the importance of Wikileaks' work, why it is a threat to the United States, the danger the arrest poses to journalists everywhere and the possibility of extradition to the US.

Correa on the Detention of Assange - "Moreno is a complete traitor"
by DW Español
12 April 2019

The ex-president of Ecuador Rafael Correa, the person who granted political asylum to Julian Assange, strongly criticizes the government of Lenin Moreno after the expulsion of the founder of Wikileaks from the Ecuadorian diplomatic legation in London.


Correa links that decision with the recent publication in Wikileaks of the "INA Papers", corruption plot that exposes Moreno's family circle.
