Thread: Julian Assange Arrested on U.S. Extradition Warrant, London Police Say

  1. #241
    A little throwback from 2017-

    Liberty Blitzkrieg breaks down Pompeo's manic rant against Wikileaks as Psychological Projection:

    that the U.S. Justice Department is trying to figure out a way to prosecute the world’s most courageous and effective news publisher, Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, … [is] further evidence of the incredible insecurity and desperation of the American establishment. ...

    CIA director Mike Pompeo decided to respond with an unhinged nervous breakdown during a recent speech to the Saudi funded Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). … Here are a few excerpts ... courtesy of the CIA:

    “WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. … it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States, while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations.”

    This is what’s called “projection.



    “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is – a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia. … We know this because Assange and his ilk make common cause with dictators today. Yes, they try unsuccessfully to cloak themselves and their actions in the language of liberty and privacy; in reality, however, they champion nothing but their own celebrity. Their currency is clickbait; their moral compass, nonexistent…. Their mission: personal self-aggrandizement through the destruction of Western values. They do not care about the causes and people they claim to represent.

    More projection.
    “No, Julian Assange and his kind are not the slightest bit interested in improving civil liberties or enhancing personal freedom.”

    [More Projection]


    [Assange] has created the most powerful and impactful media organization of the 21st century, which is precisely why [NSA/CIA/Deep State] hate his guts. ...
    “So we face a crucial question: What can we do about this? What can and should CIA, the United States, and our allies do about the unprecedented challenge posed by these hostile non-state intelligence agencies? … we can no longer allow Assange and his colleagues the latitude to use free speech values against us.It ends now.

    The first thing to appreciate from the above excerpts is how uncollected and unhinged Mike Pompeo appears to be, and let’s also not forget that Donald Trump appointed Pompeo of his own volition. … Much of his commentary centers around simple name calling, for instance referring to Assange as a “narcissist,” a “false wizard” and a “demon” in the span of just a few short paragraphs. His seemingly unstable emotional state certainly doesn’t give me a lot faith in the CIA, not that I had much to begin with….


    Pompeo’s entire rant is filled with projection. … Psychological Projection … For instance, he accuses Assange of “seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations.” I mean, that’s basically the CIA’s mission statement, and its entire history is filled to the brim with “seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations.”

    Moving along, he states “Assange and his ilk make common cause with dictators today,” and also says about Wikileaks, “they do not care about the causes and people they claim to represent.” Both of these statements summarize U.S. foreign policy to a tee. After all, one of America’s closest foreign allies, Saudi Arabia, is not only one of the world’s most repressive, undemocratic states, it is also one of the leading propagators of radical Islamic terrorism ...

    Finally, Pompeo justifies his attack on the First Amendment by pushing a false “us versus them mentality.” … This implies that Assange and Wikileaks represent “the enemy,” while the CIA is somehow some shining white night. Unfortunately for Pompeo, this isn’t how many Americans see the situation.

    Prosecutors have struggled with whether the First Amendment precluded the prosecution of Assange, but now believe they have found a way to move forward. … The DOJ apparently spent 7 years trying to figure out how to void the First Amendment, yet it couldn’t jail a single bank executive during that entire time. What does this tell you about where the government’s priorities lie? … It is an imperial agenda to protect and secure the wealth and power of the few against the well being and liberty of the many. The U.S. empire doesn’t work for the people, it works for a small handful of elitists and insiders who have completely gamed a corrupt system for their advantage. The American people are starting to figure this out, partly due to the journalism of Wikileaks, which is why the deep state hates Assange so passionately.

    The American empire is becoming increasingly insecure and desperate, which also makes it increasingly dangerous. Empires don’t reform, and as we can see from Trump’s first 100 days …

    Jeremy Corbyn has called on the Government not to extradite Julian Assange, saying he had exposed evidence of atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Almost 12 hours his arrest, the Labour leader tweeted: "The extradition of Julian Assange to the US for exposing evidence of atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan should be opposed by the British government."
    He accompanied his social media post with a video tweeted by shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, which she said showed leaked Pentagon footage of a 2007 air strike in Iraq which implicated American armed forces in the killing of civilians and two journalists.


    Addressing the House of Commons on Thursday, Ms Abbott said Assange was in the "cross-hairs of the US administration" over his whistle-blowing activities.
    Ms Abbott said: "It is this whistle-blowing into illegal wars, mass murder, murder of civilians and corruption on a grand scale, that has put Julian Assange in the cross-hairs of the US administration.
    "It is for this reason that they have once more issued an extradition warrant against Mr Assange."
    In response, Home Secretary Sajid Javid said: "Why is it whenever someone has a track record of undermining the UK and our allies and the values we stand for, you can almost guarantee that the leadership of the party opposite will support those who intend to do us harm?
    "You can always guarantee that from the party opposite."
    Assange, with grey hair tied into a pony tail and sporting a long beard, was described by a judge at a packed Westminster Magistrates' Court as behaving like a "narcissist", as he advised him to "get over to the US" and "get on with your life".

    Anyone know where Rand stands on this matter?

    Here's the latest tweet from 4/11 (latest at time of post)



    No mention of Wikileaks or Assange below this tweet.

    How about his website? https://www.paul.senate.gov/

    As of the time of this writing, neither the word Wikileaks nor Assange appear.

    Tulsi Gabbard has no problem addressing the issue. In fact, so far, she's the only member of the District of Criminals to do so. Another reason to support Tulsi 2020. She's a REAL Leader.

    I just wish the founders of this country had the foresight to put a clause in the constitution that could act as a check against tyrannical governments.

    But, alas, they didn't.

    You must mean a "peaceful check" against tyrannical governments because they did put one in... The 2nd, and why they are so hell bent on removing it. The real problem is the immunities they have given themselves and authority from the very laws they impose on the masses.

    Lest we ignore her gun grabbing and socialist inclinations.

    $15 dollar minimum wage, Medicare for all.

    Just terrible.

    I am glad that over the last 9 years she has become a sharp critic of US interventionism (after she volunteered again to go back to Iraq) but really, she is simply an awful candidate.

    Yep.

    Especially when AG Barr said, in recent testimony, that he believes the Trump campaign was spied on, then Assange was arrested.

    They got Manning in prison, which I believe is a all diversion. I think this is more about what Assange knows about the DNC hacks and Seth Rich's death and they don't what that information getting out.
