          Russophobia, A WMD (Weapon Of Mass Deception)      Comment   Translate Page      

Authored by Jean Ranc via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Russophobia, as psycho-social-political pathology, is diagnosed as a disorder in The West since before the 1000-year-old Roman-Orthodox religious schism and most recently manifested with a vengeance in the course of the 2013-14 with Edward Snowden’s revelations of mass surveillance by the US and its covert activities leading to the Ukraine coup with Russophobia used thereafter as a weapon of mass deception to inflame this latent pathology in the public.

After more than a year since we first heard the BBC “breaking news” about the “Russians Poisoning the Skipals”, all we have are allegations, but there is still no real evidence to present before a judge and jury for a just trial, only media propaganda which has provoked even more fear and hysteria meant to distract people from the government’s bungling and high level of anxiety over Brexit by once again blaming Russia. Never-the-less, it prompted politicians to administer instant sanctions against Russia as punishment. That first day, the "evidence", presented in the usual clipped, "authoritative" British accents, included interviews with a conservative British MP, then the former US Ambassador to Russia, Alexander Vershbow (2001-05), now with the notoriously hawkish US-based think tank, the Atlantic Council. Thus, the three of them: the BBC “journalist” and the two “experts”, colluded to transform false allegations into "facts"... fueled, as always, by their perpetual prejudice, RUSSOPHOBIA, in the course of their propaganda war to force Russia to surrender to American-led Western Domination or else: have their economy destroyed & their people suffer. Indeed, it is a threat to the whole world played to the discord of rattling nuclear swords with a chorus of vindictive Russian oligarchs, whom Putin expelled for robbing the Russian people. So, now living in London as expats, they would seem to be the more likely culprits. All the while elsewhere in London, thanks to our “special US-UK relationship”, Julian Assange has been excommunicated and imprisoned in a tiny “cell” at the Ecuador embassy for revealing embarrassing American secrets via Wikileaks.

There we have it: the poisoning of our minds by the media and politicians which are owned and controlled by the US-UK-EU 1%, who benefit from Western Hegemony. So, these deluded few are now desperately defending it from the rising powers led by Russia and China with India not far behind demanding a multi-polar, democratic world order.

My search for the roots of this particularly vicious and extremely dangerous hate campaign began in a Dartmouth College Russian Foreign Policy course, which led me to the book, “Russophobia: Anti-Russian Lobby and American Foreign Policy” by San Francisco State University Professor Andrei P. Tsygankov (2009). And there, the detoxification of my mind began as I studied his deft, well-documented deconstruction of the political propaganda disseminated “by various think tanks, congressional testimonials, activities of NGOs and the media” (preface p. XIII)

Then in Italy the following winter, I discovered the work of the Swiss journalist, Guy Mettan, in the Italian geopolitical journal, LiMes: an excerpt from his book, “Creating Russophobia: From the Great Religious Schism to Anti-Putin Hysteria” (2017). There, Mettan informs us that this psycho-social pathology in Western Civilization” goes back more than 1000 years: to the division of Christendom between the Orthodox and Roman churches. Indeed, his research into the depths of history confirms the diagnosis by our renowned American psychiatrist, Robert Jay Lifton, in his 2003 book, “Superpower Syndrome: America’s Apocalyptic Confrontation with the World”. Therein, Lifton states: “More than merely dominate, the American superpower now seeks to control history. Such cosmic ambition is accompanied by an equally vast sense of entitlement, of special dispensation to pursue its aims.” (p.3) And Mettan’s analysis of Russophobia also underscores the work of University of Chicago Professor John J. Mearsheimer, our leading international relations “realist” in his three Henry L. Stimson lectures at Yale University November 2017: “The Roots of Liberal Hegemony”, “The False Promises of Liberal Hegemony” and “The Case for Restraint”: with his book, “The Great Delusion: Liberal Dreams, International Realities” published in 2018.

But what about “Russian Aggression” in Ukraine & Crimea?

In the first place, it was the astute Mearsheimer, who, in the Sept-Oct 2014 Foreign Affairs, informed us “Why the Ukraine Crisis is the West’s Fault: The Liberal Delusions That Provoked Putin” (pp 77-89), but the American foreign policy establishment, together with ambitious politicians and the me-too media, paid no heed and continues to repeat its fabricated “facts”.

Never-the-less, Mearsheimer is backed up by Richard Sakwa, Professor of Russian and European Politics at the University of Kent. In Sakwa’s book, “Russia Against the Rest: The Post-Cold War Crisis of World Order”, 2017, we turn to the section on “Reality Wars and American Power” on p. 217 to read: “It does indeed seem that Russia and Western elites live in totally different worlds, divided by different epistemological understandings of the nature of contemporary reality. The Ukraine crisis crystallized the profound differences between Russian and Atlanticist understandings of the breakdown and its causes.” And he continues on p. 218: “Elite and policy-maker perceptions and attitudes forged in the Cold War years sustain these legacies and frame the discussions of such crucial issues as NATO enlargement, democracy promotion in the post-Soviet area, and strategic arms talks.” Adding that these “are no longer so much legacies as self-regenerating narratives and modes of discourse that preclude a more open-ended understanding of the dynamics and concerns of Russia today.”

Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now; we create our own reality.”

[In 2004, journalist Ron Suskind wrote in The New York Times magazine that a top White House strategist for President George W. Bush—identified later as Karl Rove, Bush’s Deputy White House Chief of Staff—told him, “We’re an empire now, we create our own reality.”]

Thus, we’ve become trapped in a contrived “reality” promulgated by neo-conservative warriors under cover of neo-liberal “democracy-spreading-humanitarian-interventionists” to justify an American Empire promoting itself as the indispensable “Liberal World Order”. However, under that global order, as Sakwa points out on p. 219: “If a foreign power is considered to have violated ‘international order’, then it can be overthrown” as a rationale for American “regime change” anywhere around the world: whether to control the supply of copper in Chile or oil in Iran. And, with its eye on Russia’s vast oil, gas and other natural resources, America claims the right to threaten Russia by ringing it with weapons which we would not abide were the Russians to place missiles in Mexico…as the Soviets did in Cuba to defend it after our “Bay of Pigs” invasion that brought humanity to the brink of nuclear war. Thus, Russia was defending itself in Ukraine against further NATO expansion while Crimean citizens, by majority vote in a democratic referendum, chose to rejoin Russia as they had been one country ever since Catherine the Great…except for an interval in the '50s when Crimea was” gifted” to Ukraine while they were all members of the Soviet Union.

“Ditching Solzhenitsyn, Defender of Russia”

And not to forget that in 1974, after being expelled from the Soviet Union, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn and his family fled first to Zurich then to Vermont in 1976 and lived on a farm near Cavendish, where he continued to write and publish his work. Meanwhile, Mettan, as a journalist covering events related to Russia, became quite distressed over "the widespread prejudices, cartloads of clichés and systematic anti-Russian biases of most western media." And he went on to say that “the more I traveled, discussed and read, the wider I perceived, the more the gap of incomprehension and ignorance between Western Europe and Russia became evident. 

"That was why, during the 1990s, I was shocked by the way the West treated Solzhenitsyn. For decades, we had published, celebrated, and acclaimed the great writer as bearing the torch of anti-Soviet dissidence. We had praised Solzhenitsyn to the skies as long as he criticized his native country, communist Russia. But as soon as he emigrated, realizing that he preferred to isolate himself in his Vermont retreat to work rather than attending anticommunist conferences, western media and academics began to distance themselves from the great writer.

"The idol no longer matched the image they had built and was becoming a hindrance to their academic and journalistic career plans. And once Solzhenitsyn had left the United States to go back to Russia and defend his humiliated, demoralized motherland that was being sold at auction, raising his voice against the Russian 'Westernizers' and pluralist liberals who denied the interests of Russia to better revel in the troughs of capitalism, he became a marked man, an outdated, senile writer, even though he himself had not changed in the least, denouncing with the same vigor the defects of market totalitarianism as those of communist totalitarianism.

"He was booed, despised, his name was dragged through the mud for his choices, often by the very people who had praised his first fights. Despite that, against all odds, against the most powerful powers that were trying to dissuade him, Solzhenitsyn defended his one and only cause, that of Russia. He was not forgiven for having turned his pen against that West that had welcomed him and felt it was owed eternal gratitude. A dissident today, a dissident wherever truth compelled, such was his motto. This deserves to be remembered." Mettan, pp. 15-16 in “Creating Russophobia”.

Russophobia: akin to Racism

From another perspective: Mettan’s chapter on "German Russophobia" set me thinking that this "Western Supremacy" political-cultural pathology known as Russophobia is like the racism which I knew growing up in totally segregated Oklahoma. Until in high school, I became so perplexed and appalled by the curtain of hate and “justifications” in which we were smothered: the Negro schools on the other side of town? and why were there separate waiting rooms, drinking fountains & restrooms in bus and train stations?...that I began poking holes in the curtain to see what was outside...and found a book in the library: "South of Freedom" by Carl Rowan, an African-American Minneapolis Star Tribune journalist, describing his journey from South to North. So, thanks to what I learned from Rowan, I began to tear the whole damned curtain down...at least in my mind.

Whom the Gods would destroy, they first drive mad?

So, here’s a Swiss journalist punching a hole in this wall of Russophobic Western Supremacy… and through that gaping hole, we are reminded that the Russians are Europe’s neighbors who sacrificed more than 26 million of their own lives to save Europe, America and Russia from the Nazis. These are not poor "niggers" from the Eurasian ghetto we've been trying to club into submission as second-class citizens of “The Liberal World Order” dominated by US; they're nuclear-armed and no longer willing to sit at a separate, inferior table with no vote and no voice over who makes the rules...nor are China, India and Brazil. And last year, while the wave of Russophobic hysteria over alleged “Russian poisoning” was rolling out of the UK and engulfing the Western world in the latest siege of mass madness…with only Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British Labor party, having the courage to stand up in Parliament on the Ides of March and demand Evidence! only to be pilloried by the mindless politicians and media…led by the once esteemed BBC. And the week following the August 7, 2018 Trump-Putin Helsinki summit, will surely go down in psychiatric circles as another case of mass media-political delusions led by cheer-leader-in-chief, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC.

Meanwhile, not to forget that it was Hearst newspaper propaganda that whipped the American public into a war frenzy to support our first step in empire-building: our 1898 intervention in Cuba’s war for independence from the Spanish Empire which had dominated all of Latin America for 500 years. As the former NYTimes journalist/bureau chief in Istanbul, Berlin & Central America, Stephen Kinzer reminds us in his latest book "The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire", Twain, Booker T. Washington and even Andrew Carnegie leading a handful of other anti-imperialists...were not able to prevail against Roosevelt with his Rough Riders and the Hearst newspapers’ war propaganda.

Regime Change Comes Home

Never-the-less, after a very long run of American “regime change” abroad leaving a bloody trail of destruction, dictatorships and chaos from Iran in 1953, when we joined with the British to overthrow the democratically-elected President Mohammad Mossadegh to maintain the Brit-US control of its oil…on through Guatemala, Vietnam and Chile…to name a few of our interventions…we were back for a second round with “coalitions of the willing” or not? in the Middle East where our regime-change machine managed to plow its way through Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya…before breaking down in Syria. Until now it’s been brought home again, renovated and renamed “RussiaGate” for another attempt at removing a President for trying to mend US relations with Russia. Though even after more than a year of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigations accompanied by such cinematic support as the movie, “Felt”, another “Watergate” re-run. Did anyone else notice the resemblance between “Felt” and Mueller? And despite the media’s commemoration of its 44-year-old “moment of courage” with the movie “The Post” to promote Trump’s ouster, our democratically-elected President, as of this writing, remains in power. However, in this rush to “regime change”, didn’t the our “ruling elite” read Jane Mayer’s “The Danger of President Pence” in the 10/23/17 New Yorker? At least the 70s' “ruling class” was smart enough to remove an unqualified Vice President Spiro (who?) Agnew…before “regime changing” Nixon and replacing him with the more or less benign Gerald Ford.

A Florentine Epiphany

But back to last January in Florence, Italy, when I was hiking in the hills beyond the Piazzale Michelangelo, with its spectacular view of that Renaissance city and its centerpiece, the Duomo, I came across the Villa Galileo, which had been his last home after his trial as a “heretic”, during which to save himself from torture and execution, he was forced to deny his helio-centric vision and henceforth lived under “villa arrest”, from 1631 until his natural death in 1642. While pondering his fate, I continued walking along the gently rising, ever-narrowing road between ancient stone walls overlooking villas and olive groves until I reached the peak, where I felt as if I were standing on top of the world as I contemplated both the Arno and Ema river valleys far below and where I swear I heard Galileo declare: “The world does not turn on an American axis!”

The 21st Century Inquisition

So how is it that we now have contemporary Inquisitors persecuting so many truth tellers…such as Edward Snowden, our electronic age “Solzhenitsyn?” in Russian exile; Chelsea Manning, imprisoned some 7 years for revealing US brutality in Iraq; Julian Assange confined to his Ecuadorian Embassy exile in London since August 2012; Katharine Gun, a whistleblower attempting to stop the Iraq invasion, who faced 2 years of British imprisonment before her case was dropped; James Risen, former New York Times journalist who was persecuted by our “justice” system for revealing our government’s surveillance of US!

Any Good Sense Left?

So, do we the people have enough good sense & independent thinking left to follow the advice of Henry David Thoreau?

“Let us settle ourselves, and work and wedge our feet downward through the mud and slush of opinion, and prejudice, and tradition, and delusion, and appearance, that alluvion which covers the globe, through Paris and London, through New York and Boston and Concord, through church and state, through poetry and philosophy and religion, till we come to a hard bottom and rocks in place, which we can call reality.”

          Ecuador Hacked After Julian Assange Arrest      Comment   Translate Page      

Two days after the Thursday arrest of Julian Assange at Ecuador's London embassy, several government websites were hacked; including Ecuador's official website, the Central Bank of Ecuador, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ecuadorian Assembly in the UK, according to Gateway Pundit's Cassandra Fairbanks, who was in London last week and documented the run-up to Assange's arrest. 

Concurrent with the breach, a hacking group operating under the name "AL1NE3737#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F218872" released a database containing the full names and passwords for what appear to be 728 Ecuadorian government employees. 

Furthermore, Ecuador's sites were hit with Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. According to DefCon Lab.

Among those involved in these attacks stand out from the groups / hacker DeathLaw , 5UB5, Cyb3r C0nven Security and Al1ne ( Pryzraky ).

DoS actions has consistently been against the Ecuadorian government targets, the country that gave Julian Assange to the UK police." -DefCon Lab

...

The hacker Al1ne ( Pryzraky ) performed page defacements against and released a list of vulnerable targets related to the government of Ecuador

As noted by Fairbanks, "The cyber attack was reminiscent of 2010’s “Operation Avenge Assange” which was launched by the broader “Operation Payback” effort. The movement lead to hacktivists hitting companies such as PayPal, PostFinance, Mastercard, Visa, and others who had blocked services to WikiLeaks with a distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack. This is when a website is flooded with fake traffic until it crashes and goes offline." 

Following Assange's Thursday arrest, more than 70 MPs and peers signed a letter urging the UK home secretary to ensure that the WikiLeaks founder is extradited to Sweden if Swedish authorities request it. 

Sweden is considering whether to open a previously-dropped investigation into allegations of rape and sexual assault against Assange. 

The United States, meanwhile, wants to try Assange for the largest-ever leak of government secrets in 2010.  On Thursday, the Justice Department hit him with an indictment that claims the WikiLeaks founder helped former US Army intelligence analyst crack DoD password using Linux.  

"The indictment alleges that in March 2010, Assange engaged in a conspiracy with Chelsea Manning, a former intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army, to assist Manning in cracking a password stored on U.S. Department of Defense computers connected to the Secret Internet Protocol Network (SIPRNet), a U.S. government network used for classified documents and communications," reads a DOJ press release

Materials Manning released included videos of various US airstrikes in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the "Iraq War Logs" and "Afghan War Diary." 

Assange faces five years in prison if convicted in the Manning case. 


          The Legal Narrative Funnel That's Being Used To Extradite Assange      Comment   Translate Page      

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

Isn’t it interesting how an Ecuadorian “asylum conditions” technicality, a UK bail technicality, and a US whistleblowing technicality all just so happened to converge in a way that just so happens to look exactly the same as imprisoning a journalist for telling the truth?

Following the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, top UK officials all began simultaneously piping the following exact phrase into public consciousness: “No one is above the law.”

“This goes to show that in the United Kingdom, no one is above the law,” Prime Minister Theresa May told parliament after Assange’s arrest.

“Julian Assange is no hero and no one is above the law,” tweeted Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

“Nearly 7 years after entering the Ecuadorean Embassy, I can confirm Julian Assange is now in police custody and rightly facing justice in the UK. I would like to thank Ecuador for its cooperation and @metpoliceuk for its professionalism. No one is above the law,” tweeted Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

Over and over again that phrase showed up to be unquestioningly re-bleated by the human livestock known as the British press in all their reporting on the Assange case: No one is above the law. No one is above the law. No one is above the law. Something tells me they really want people to know that, with regard to Julian Assange, no one is above the law.

But what is “the law” in this particular case? What they are constantly referring to as “the law” with regard to Assange is in fact nothing more than a combination of ridiculous bureaucratic technicalities which can be (and have been) interpreted very differently, but are now instead being interpreted in a way which just so happens to lead to a truth-telling journalist being locked in a cage, awaiting extradition to the same government which tortured Chelsea Manning.

Now, the US is a Free Democracy™. When you are a Free Democracy™, you can’t just go around imprisoning journalists willy nilly simply for telling the truth about your government. That’s something other countries do, bad countries, the kind of country the US routinely invades in order to help spread Freedom and Democracy™. The US would never do that. But it would diddle a bunch of narratives in such a way that just so happens to achieve exactly the same result.

As we discussed yesterday, the Trump administration’s extradition request is accompanied by criminal charges which are based on the same information which the Obama administration declined to charge Assange for, a point which has been discussed in more detail in a new article by The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald and Micah Lee. The Obama administration looked at the evidence and concluded that there was no way to charge Assange with anything without endangering press freedoms, then the Trump administration looked at literally the exact same evidence and said screw press freedoms, we’re going after him. They wanted to punish Assange and show the world what happens to a journalist who exposes US war crimes, so they changed the narrative to make it happen.

But they couldn’t extradite Assange from the UK if the British government didn’t legally have Assange in custody.

To get around this problem, the UK, which is functionally just a province within the US-centralized empire, used a bail technicality to justify his arrest. After the Swedish government decided to drop its sexual assault investigation without issuing any charges, Assange’s legal team attempted last year to get a British arrest warrant dropped for a bail violation which went into effect when the WikiLeaks founder took political asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy. The judge in that case, Emma Arbuthnot, just happens to be married to former Tory junior Defence Minister and government whip James Arbuthnot, who served as director of Security Intelligence Consultancy SC Strategy Ltd with a former head of MI6. Lady Arbuthnot denied Assange’s request with extreme vitriol, despite his argument that British law does have provisions which allow for the time he’d already served under functional house arrest to count toward far more time than would be served for violating bail. The British government kept police stationed outside the embassy at taxpayers’ expense with orders to arrest Assange on sight.

But they couldn’t arrest Assange as long as he had legal political asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy.

To get around that problem, Ecuador’s new president Lenin Moreno found himself being courted by the US government, meeting with Vice President Mike Pence and reportedly discussing Assange after US Democratic senators petitioned Pence to push for Moreno to revoke political asylum. The New York Times reported last year that in 2017 Paul Manafort met with Moreno and offered to broker a deal where Ecuador could receive debt relief aid in exchange for handing Assange over, and just last month Ecuador ended up receiving a 4.2 billion dollar loan from the Washington-based IMF. And then, lo and behold, we just so happen to see Ecuador justifying the revocation of political asylum under the absurd claim that Assange had violated conditions that were only recently invented, using narratives that were based on wild distortions and outright lies.

In this way a kind of narrative funnel was created, funneling Assange from the embassy to British police on the imaginary narrative that Assange had violated asylum conditions and that he needs to serve time for a bail violation, which in turn allows for Assange to be funneled from the UK into the US on the imaginary narrative that he broke some kind of law by trying to help Chelsea Manning cover her tracks and avoid detection, which is all made possible by the fact that the government of Australia (another province in the US-centralized empire) has refused to provide any protection for its citizen. And the end result just so happens to look the same as what you see when a journalist tries to expose malfeasance in an overtly totalitarian government.

This is called Nice Guy Fascism. With a little narrative manipulation you get to act just like a brutal totalitarian regime and then say it’s not because you’re a brutal totalitarian regime, it’s because you’re deeply deeply concerned about the adherence to a specific interpretation of the bureaucratic technicalities of bail protocol. No one is above the law. No one is above the law. No one is above the law.

They keep saying “No one is above the law,” but what they really mean is “No one is safe from the law.” Our rulers are using Assange to show that they can get anyone who tells the truth about them, even if there are laws and policies in place which ostensibly prohibit that.

Manipulators love the rule of law, because they are able to twist it toward their infernal ends. It’s always possible to squint at laws in such a way that it allows them to be interpreted to the benefit of the powerful, which is why lawyers are often horrible human beings. All the most horrific things that have been done throughout the history of civilization have been carried out not by criminals but by law-abiding citizens, because they were perfectly legal under the ruling governments of that time. Genocide, slavery, torture, the use of the atomic bomb: all perfectly legal and state-sanctioned in their time.

They want you looking at “the rule of law”. They want you fixated on it. But really “the rule of law” is nothing other than a series of mental narratives which are treated as reality by existing power structures. Assange is a prisoner by narrative, because he punched holes in the authorized narratives of the powerful. Whoever controls the narrative controls the world.

La Prensa

Quito, EcuadorDos aviones con más de 170 venezolanos parten este sábado desde Ecuador al país suramericano en el marco del plan "Vuelta a la Patria", con el que ya han retornado desde suelo ecuatoriano a Venezuela 2.

600 desde septiembre, informaron a Efe fuentes de la Embajada venezolana en Quito.

Dos aparatos parten esta tarde desde la capital ecuatoriana y uno de ellos hará escala en la ciudad costera de Guayaquil, para recoger a venezolanos que desean regresar a su país y que han gestionado el traslado a través del Consulado de Venezuela en esa urbe, precisó a Efe el encargado de Negocios de la Embajada, Pedro Sassone.

Se trata de los vuelos número 28 y 29 a nivel regional desde que se iniciara este programa por el que el Gobierno de Nicolás Maduro fleta aparatos para repatriar a migrantes venezolanos que por diferentes circunstancias se encuentran en países latinoamericanos y desean regresar.

A nivel internacional más de 13.

000 venezolanos han retornado de países como Perú, Argentina, Chile en República Dominicana y Colombia, aunque este último ha impedido recientemente que estos vuelos sobrevuelen su territorio nacional.

En este sentido, el encargado precisó que los vuelos entre Quito o Guayaquil y Caracas, que tenían un promedio de dos horas y media de duración, están llegando a demorarse hasta cuatro horas y media debido a que las aeronaves deben circunvalar el territorio colombiano.

Sassone indicó, además, que desde que se puso en marcha el plan "Vuelta a la Patria" en el segundo semestre del año pasado, Ecuador y Perú han sido los países "con mayor frecuencia" de vuelos dispuestos.

El encargado adelantó que para el próximo 27 de abril se tienen planificados otros dos vuelos adicionales en el marco del programa de repatriación.

La situación económica acuciante inevitablemente ligada a casos de discriminación empuja a muchos venezolanos a querer regresar a su país pese a la situación de precariedad y carestía de la vida, que se ha tornado en acuciante con los peores apagones de su historia y la subsiguiente falta de agua potable.

Los aproximadamente 230.

000 emigrantes venezolanos que se encuentran en Ecuador representan el 1,3 por ciento del total de la población del país, que es en la región el que alberga más refugiados en proporción a su extensión territorial y número de habitantes, indicó hoy un comunicado del Ministerio de Economía y Finanzas ecuatoriano.

          Comment on How Very Shakespearean by Longrider      Comment   Translate Page      
The Ecuadorians have been complaining about his behaviour for some while now. Given that it's been a repeated theme, I'm inclined to believe them. Not least because these complaints predate the election of the new president. It's one thing to grant asylum to someone entering your embassy. It's entirely another to have a house guest for the next seven years who shows no signs of leaving. Sure, I wasn't there, but the balance of probabilities is in their favour here. I do not accept that there is a precedent being set here. The Ecuadorians faced a specific set of circumstances. They appear to have run out of patience. It does not automatically follow from this that another whistle-blower will be handed over to a hostile state in future. Niemoller really doesn't apply here because Assange is not on a list of people being persecuted and we might be next. We are not living in a fascist state that rounds up dissenters, despite my concerns about things like free speech. He is very much the author of his own downfall. Sure, you can argue that what he did, he did for the greater good and I acknowledged that in the OP. However, actions have consequences. If you choose to take on the might of the establishment by breaking laws, then sooner or later it will come back to bite you and you have to accept that breaking the law - even if you believe the law to be wrong - may result in prosecution. It's the chance you take. The greater good is unlikely to save you. In this case, I'm inclined to go along with Sargon - he is a narcissist who happened to do some good here, but brought this on himself. I find it really difficult to have any sympathy. The jumping bail charge still stands regardless of the Swedish charges being dropped, so due process must follow. We can only wait and see on that one. As for any extradition proceedings, I would expect them to be followed according to the law.

Publishers Weekly reports a new and upcoming Brontë-related novel:
PW is first to report that, five days after receiving the manuscript, Atria’s Daniella Wexler preempted a debut historical novel, Brontë’s Mistress by Finola Austin, based on the true, heretofore untold story of Lydia Robinson and her affair with Branwell Brontë. According to the publisher, “the novel gives voice to the courageous, flawed, complex woman slandered in Elizabeth Gaskell’s The Life of Charlotte Brontë as the ‘wicked’ elder seductress who corrupted the young Brontë brother, driving him to an early grave and bringing on the downfall of the entire Brontë family.” Danielle Egan-Miller at Browne & Miller negotiated the deal for world English and audio rights.

Keighley News reports Easter activities at the Parsonage: 
We're really enjoying the spring sunshine at the moment, as are some early Easter visitors to the museum.
Some schools have already broken up for the Easter holidays, and as such the museum is bustling with visitors.
We’ve got free talks and walks through the holiday period so visitors can enjoy 20-minute talks at 2pm every day, on a range of subjects, depending on the specialist interest of our wonderful and knowledgeable museum assistants and volunteers.
You might get to hear about life and death in Haworth, learn about the Bronte servants, or the early years of the Brontë siblings. Each talk is unique!
On Wednesday April 24 instead of the talks we will be leading a guided walk up onto Penistone Hill (weather permitting!) to get a sense of the landscape which was so inspirational to the Bronte family.
And also on holiday Wednesdays we have our popular Wild Wednesday drop-in workshops. In the first workshop you’ll be able to make Easter bunny cards, and the second workshop continues the Easter theme with the opportunity to make beautiful Paper Easter Eggs – much healthier than chocolate ones!
All these activities are free with admission to the museum.
Spring also brings the return of our Late Night Thursdays, where you get to experience the museum after hours. These late nights occur on the third Thursday of every month, so our first this year is April 18 – just a few days before Charlotte Brontë’s 203rd birthday!
Visiting the Parsonage that evening will be characters who knew Charlotte well – Tabby, the Brontës’ faithful and long-serving housekeeper, and John Brown, the sexton and Branwell’s drinking partner – and they’ll be sharing their knowledge about life in the Parsonage with Charlotte and her sisters.
After 5.30pm admission is free to visitors who live in the BD22, BD21, and BD20 postcode areas and Thornton, birthplace of the Brontës. Last admission is 7pm.
Spring is also a fantastic time to experience our new audio experience, which features the poems of Emily Brontë set to music by The Unthanks.
The experience is free with admission to the museum – you simply pick up the audio equipment from the shop desk, where you’ll be given an easy-to-follow map, and then you head out in Emily’s footsteps up to Penistone Hill. You can book ahead via the website if you want to guarantee a particular time.
The reviews have been overwhelming positive, with plenty of visitors tweeting lovely comments, whilst The Guardian reviewer described it as ‘quite incredible’. High praise indeed!
And finally, we were all very excited last week when Frank Cottrell Boyce paid us a visit to discuss plans for the work he’ll be doing with us in the second half of the year. (Diane Fare)
The Guardian reviews the reality show Just One Night: The human heart has hidden treasures
In secret kept, in silence sealed;
The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures,
Whose charms were broken if revealed.

It's undoubtedly a tough genre to get right.

The Irish Times and grand Irish homes:
Tarbert House in Kerry has been in the Leslie family since 1690. Ursula Leslie, a founder of the America-Ireland fund that she says “has put a lot of money into Ireland,” returned here with her late husband John in 1970. A retired barrister, she used the tax relief to help put the ancestral roof in order as well as repairing 13 of the house’s many windows – through which in 1854 the newly-married Charlotte Brontë must have gazed over the wooded parkland.

The Daily Mail publishes a story of how Julian Assange hid on Kathy Lette's attic before seeking asylum in Ecuador's embassy:
She described her frustration with his refusal to read women's literature, adding: 'When he was in Wandsworth prison I sent him in a big box of books by Jane Austen, the Brontë's, all my favourite female authors and said "now that you're a captive audienceread these books." (Joe Middleton & Ross Ibbetson)

It's undoubtedly a tough genre to get right. Todd uses two literate protagonists, the mostly chaste Tessa (Josephine Langford) and the brooding, tattooed Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin), as stand-ins for the uneasy lovers of classic literature found in such novels as "Wuthering Heights," "Jane Eyre" and "The Great Gatsby." (Caroline Seadman, Catholic News Service).
Inspired by “punk edits” of Styles on the internet (fan edits where celebrities are photoshopped and covered with tattoos and piercings), Todd wrote a fanfiction where Styles wasn’t in a boy band but was a college bad boy who seduces—and eventually falls in love with—Tessa, an innocent freshman who lives in his dorm. She called the story After. “It was more along the lines of a modern-day Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights than anything to do with the actual Harry Styles,” she says. (Jason Pham in StyleCaster)
Not that he's your typical bad boy, though, since he seems to have very literary tastes. Spotting a book on Tessa's shelf, he comments, "The Great Gatsby, that's a good book." He's also able to quote from Wuthering Heights and engage in a spirited classroom argument with Tessa, about Pride and Prejudice, in which the subtext is inescapable. (Frank Scheck in The Hollywood Reporter)
After,” which wasn’t screened in advance for critics, also falls into that desperately referential category of love story that name-checks Austen and the Brontes as if that automatically places itself in the same lineage of swoon-worthy classics. (Robert Abele in The Wrap)
Dessuten er han selvoppnevnt ekspert på trøblete romanhelter i britisk litteratur; Mr. Darcy fra «Stolthet og fordom» (Jane Austen) og Heathcliff fra «Stormfulle høyder» (Emily Brontë) og dessuten er han alltid iført en Ramones-T-sjorte. På spørsmål om hvem han elsker høyest i verden svarer han selvsagt «meg selv». En sånn fyr må man jo bare falle for. I bøker. Og på film. (Inger Betzrud in Dagbladet) (Translation)

The Brontë Myth by Lucasta Miller
Okay, I’d rather read about the Wollstonecrafts/Shelleys, or the Peabodys, because I think the Brontës are a bit overrated…but like the Plath biography, which was a biography of her biographies, this book tries to demystify the myth that surrounds the Brontës. (Sarah Ullery)

"...Since 2015, Correa—who lives with his family in Brussels, Belgium—had used the social platform to great effect, using strongly-worded posts, video interviews, and live-streams as a platform amid the Ecuadorean media’s de facto blackout of the former leader, who remains reviled by the center-right former opposition and sections of the country’s left.
Former President Correa minced no words in his assessment of Moreno, denouncing him in an English-language tweet as “the greatest traitor in Ecuadorian and Latin American history … Moreno is a corrupt man, but what he has done is a crime that humanity will never forget.” ...

IT IS STRAIGHT-UP TREASON, IT'S A DAMN MASSIVE INVASION... 

Trump Fires Off Late Night Tweet – Calls Democrats’ Open Border Policies “TREASONOUS”

President Trump fired off a late night tweet Wednesday, calling the actions taken by Democrats to keep the borders wide open, “TREASONOUS.”

Thank you, President Trump for calling it what it is!
“I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is putting our Country at risk. Will not let this happen!” Trump said in a tweet.

There is a huge crisis at the US-Mexico border with record number of illegal aliens flooding into the United States.
Asylum seekers are being released into communities because of dangerous “catch and release” policies and Congress refuses to act.
No doubt these caravans of illegals are being funded by open border zealots looking to destroy US sovereignty.
Multiple caravans full of military-aged Central Americans and other migrants from all over the world are currently marching to the US border where they will seek asylum then be released into the US.

Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch said that in his sector alone, border agents have captured people trying to enter the country illegally from more than 50 different countries, including Turkey, China, Bangladesh, Egypt and Romania. “People are traveling across hemispheres to attempt to illegally enter the U.S., using the same pathways as the Central Americans,” he told lawmakers.
“Karisch noted that Border Patrol has apprehended more families illegally crossing the border in the first five months of fiscal 2019 than during all of fiscal 2018,” Fox News reported. “Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehended more than 76,000 migrants across the border in February and said it was on track to apprehend more than 100,000 in March. In the Rio Grande Valley alone, Karisch said that at current pace, they would have more than 260,000 apprehensions in his sector by the end of fiscal 2019. There were 162,000 in RGV last year. He also said that his agents apprehend, on average, 1,000 people a day.”
President Trump declared a national emergency in February to secure funding for a border wall, however, the insanely dangerous asylum laws are causing the biggest surge of illegal aliens flooding over the border.
Despite nearly 100,000 illegal invaders being apprehended by border patrol in the month of March alone, Democrats continue to give comfort and aid to the invaders by refusing to stop the border surge.
Judge Richard Seeborg on Monday blocked President Trump’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait their turn for an immigration judge to hear their cases.
Judge Seeborg, an Obama appointee in San Francisco, granted a request by a civil liberties group that sued the Trump Administration on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America.
Trump is right — what the Democrats are doing with the border is treasonous.

Dear Savannah, 

You can’t make this up.
Yesterday I went to the Attorney General’s Office in New Hampshire to give them proof of voter fraud.  An admission from an Atkinson man who voted twice in the same election in two different states.

You can view the video HERE.
How did they respond?
They handed me and my executive producer a grand jury subpoena.  
Did the summons mention anything about voter fraud or double voting?  Of course not. 
We are now ordered to appear before a grand jury in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire for an investigation.

Our journalists found a man who admitted to double voting.  Breaking the law!
Now, the response of the AG’s office isn’t to investigate the double voter, but instead our operations.
I will not budge.  I will not capitulate.  And I will not cave to this political pressure.
I will keep releasing voter fraud videos in New Hampshire and I will not be not be intimidated by the misguided use of the grand jury process to try and prevent our lawful investigative journalism.
I'm not asking for your money, I'm asking for your help.
Please help me put pressure on the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office to investigate this voter fraud case right now.  
Please call their investigator Robert J. Sullivan at:603-271-1182
Or you can email him atRobert.Sullivan@doj.nh.gov
Tell him the following:
Please investigate Robert A. Bell for admitting to voting twice.  Why did you subpoena James O'Keefe, the journalist, instead of subpoenaing the person who voted twice? 
Be Brave!

"...Offenders are said to be sent to "re-education" camps to clamp down on social media use.
Mandatory spyware is downloaded onto citizen’s phones to restrict what citizens can access.
And police check mobiles for evidence of foreign social media apps like Twitter or WhatsApp.
Xinjiang is home to 11 million Uighurs - one of China’s fifty-five ethnic minorities who have their own language and mainly practice Islam.
The Chinese government is accused of routinely targeting citizens of the region with “counter-terror” measures and brutal policing.
Kasim, who claims to be a Xinjiang native, shared what he says are secretly taken pictures inside the secretive region, which the Chinese government restricts access to by outsiders.
He says he used special software to bypass the government's censors and post the images on Twitter.
And he said living in China is “like Nazi Germany” and likened the Chinese Communist Party to ISIS..."

Your car is watching you. Who owns the data?

Computers on wheels raise thorny questions about data privacy

If you’re driving a late model car or truck, chances are that the vehicle is mostly computers on wheels, collecting and wirelessly transmitting vast quantities of data to the car manufacturer not just on vehicle performance but personal information, too, such as your weight, the restaurants you visit, your music tastes and places you go.
A car can generate about 25 gigabytes of data every hour and as much as 4,000 gigabytes a day, according to some estimates. The data trove in the hands of car makers could be worth as much as $750 billion by 2030, the consulting firm McKinsey has estimated. But consumer groups, aftermarket repair shops and privacy advocates say the data belongs to the car’s owners and the information should be subject to data privacy laws.
Yet Congress has yet to pass comprehensive federal data privacy legislation. And although Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, has said he would like to see federal privacy legislation passed by the end of the year, it is unclear if that goal can be met.
Financial technology is changing how we do business, and regulators are trying to catch up

WIKILEAKS set 21st century model for cyber-leak journalism...

          Este es el verdadero sentido de las palmas de Domingo de Ramos      Comment   Translate Page      
REDACCIÓN CENTRAL, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- Este domingo millones de católicos acudirán a las iglesias para iniciar la Semana Santa con el Domingo de Ramos y recordar así la entrada triunfal de Jesús en Jerusalén cuando fue recibido por sus discípulos y la población con palmas y ramos de olivo.

No obstante, ¿cuál es el verdadero sentido de estas palmas una vez bendecidas?

Luego de ser bendecidas, muchos fieles suelen colocarlas en algún lugar privilegiado del hogar y las utilizan como un sacramental, es decir, como “signos sagrados con los que, imitando de alguna manera a los sacramentos, se expresan efectos, sobre todo espirituales, obtenidos por la intercesión de la Iglesia” (CIC 1667).

A pesar de esta precisión, son muchas las personas que acostumbran colocar las palmas benditas detrás de la puerta "como amuletos, con fines curativos o para mantener alejados a los malos espíritus o a los rateros, lo cual es una superstición”, advirtió el Sistema Informativo de la Arquidiócesis de México (SIAME).

Esta creencia –según el SIAME– es errónea debido a que “el verdadero sentido de las palmas en nuestro hogar es tener presente que Jesús es nuestro rey y que debemos siempre darle la bienvenida en nuestro hogar”.

Una vez termine la Semana Santa, se sugiere llevarlas “a la iglesia para que sean quemadas y emplear su ceniza precisamente en el ‘Miércoles de Ceniza’, principio de la próxima Cuaresma”, concluye el SIAME.

Se estima que existen 2600 especies de palmas, pero la planta que produce las hojas que se usan el Domingo de Ramos solo puede sobrevivir en climas tropicales o subtropicales.

En los lugares donde no se pueden encontrar palmas o están en peligro de extinción, como es el caso de Colombia o Ecuador con las “palmas de cera”, se pueden utilizar ramas de olivo, saúco, abeto o de otros árboles.

En el "Caeremoniale Episcoporum", libro que contiene los ritos y ceremonias latinas de la Iglesia Católica, se sugiere que en estos casos, al menos se le adjunten a las ramas de olivo flores o cruces hechas de palma.

Robert Tibbo, a lawyer for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, told RT that he believes Ecuador's decision to strip away Julian Assange's asylum is based on a very weak legal case and may amount to a breach of the constitution. "Number one, there is a very high threshold to strip someone of an asylum. For what's available in [the] public domain, I don't see any evidence that would justify President [Lenin] Moreno or his administration stripping [Julian Assange] of that asylum status," Tibbo told RT. The lawyer said that by giving Assange only a "30-minute notice" before revoking his asylum and citizenship, Ecuador appears to have violated his rights under its own laws.
          Giuliani: Assange could reveal Ukraine was behind Russia collusion 'plot'      Comment   Translate Page      
President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani, in an exclusive interview with the Washington Examiner, said Julian Assange could expose a "plot" involving Ukraine to falsely accuse Trump of colluding with Russia. The WikiLeaks publisher was arrested Thursday in London and urged resistance to the "Trump administration" as he was dragged out of Ecuador's embassy to face extradition. Assange helped elect Trump with 2016 dumps of damaging Democratic emails allegedly hacked by Russia. He was charged with a single count of computer-hacking conspiracy relating to Chelsea Manning's 2010 leaks of military and diplomatic secrets. Trump distanced himself from the case, but Giuliani said Assange's apprehension - after nearly seven years in the embassy - could benefit the president, who was recently exonerated of criminal collusion with Russia by special counsel Robert Mueller.
          The US charge against Assange is fraudulent and that's a fact      Comment   Translate Page      
Julian Assange sits in a jail cell today after being betrayed by the Ecuadorian government and his home country of Australia. A British judge named Michael Snow has found the WikiLeaks founder guilty of violating bail conditions, inserting himself into the annals of history by labeling Assange "a narcissist who cannot get beyond his own selfish interest." So that tells you how much of a fair and impartial legal proceeding we can expect to see from the British judicial process on this matter. But the real reason that Assange has been surrendered by the Ecuadorian government, imprisoned by the British government, and ignored by the Australian government is not directly related to any of those governments, but to that of the United States of America. An unsealed indictment from the Trump administration's District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, accompanied by an extradition request, charges Assange with "conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for agreeing to break a...

Quito, 13 abr (EFE).- El arresto del australiano Julian Assange, capturado por Scotland Yard en el interior de la Embajada de Ecuador en Londres, fue para el Gobierno del presidente Lenín Moreno como librarse de "una piedra en el zapato", aunque el camino parece seguir siendo pedregoso para el Ejecutivo ecuatoriano.

Hillary Clinton is delighted over the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Asssange
Hillary Clinton celebrated the arrest of Julian Assange on Thursday, saying that WikiLeaks founder needs to “answer for what he has done.”

The 2016 presidential loser weighed in on Assange while at a speaking event with her husband Bill Clinton.
Time.com reports: Assange was arrested earlier Thursday at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and the U.S. has charged him with conspiring with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer at the Pentagon.
WikiLeaks’ publication of Democratic emails stolen by Russian intelligence officers during the 2016 election season hurt Clinton’s presidential campaign. Donald Trump, Clinton’s Republican opponent, frequently showered praise on Assange during the final weeks of the campaign and cheered on the release of damaging emails from Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta.
Assange was arrested after Ecuador revoked the political asylum that had kept him holed up at the embassy for nearly seven years. The U.S. is seeking Assange’s extradition.
Clinton said Thursday, “The bottom line is that he has to answer for what he has done, at least as it has been charged.”
In a tongue-in-cheek nod to Trump’s hard-line immigration stance, Clinton added, “I do think it’s a little ironic that he’s the only foreigner this administration would welcome to the United States.”

a heap-load of righteous indignation.. wow! Are you from the war-wing of the Dem Party? Noam Chomsky on Democracy Now. excerpt: "Well, the Assange arrest is scandalous in several respects. One of them is just the effort of governments—and it’s not just the U.S. government. The British are cooperating. Ecuador, of course, is now cooperating. Sweden, before, had cooperated. The efforts to silence a journalist who was producing materials that people in power didn’t want the rascal multitude to know about—OK?—that’s basically what happened. WikiLeaks was producing things that people ought to know about those in power." I also strongly suggest John Pilger: https://consortiumnews.com/2019/04/12/assange-arrest-a-warning-from-history/

          Se deslinda Inglaterra de juicio a Julian Assange, fundador de Wikileaks      Comment   Translate Page      
Más de 70 legisladores británicos pidieron al gobierno que se asegure de que el fundador de WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, enfrenta a la justicia en Suecia si la fiscalía del país reabre un caso por violación en su contra.

En una carta firmada el viernes en la noche, los diputados instaron al secretario de Interior, Sajid Javid, a "hacer todo lo posible para promover acciones que aseguren que Julian Assange pueda ser extraditado a Suecia en el caso de que Suecia presente una solicitud de extradición”.

Las autoridades judiciales suecas suspendieron su investigación sobre un presunto delito sexual grave hace dos años ante la imposibilidad de acceder al activista australiano, que estaba refugiado en la embajada de Ecuador de Londres con estatus de asilo político.

Assange fue arrestado el jueves luego de que el gobierno de Quito le retiró la protección. Está detenido por las autoridades británicas y se enfrenta a una solicitud de extradición a Estados Unidos por la acusación de conspiración para entrar en una computadora del Pentágono.

El fundador de WikiLeaks, que niega haber cometido delito alguno, está en la prisión de Belmarsh, en el sureste de Londres, a la espera de una condena por violar los términos de la libertad bajo fianza en el país y tiene previsto luchar contra el pedido de extradición a Estados Unidos.
          Justice Department Charges WikiLeaks' Assange With Computer Hacking Conspiracy      Comment   Translate Page      
Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit DAVID GREENE, HOST: Let's update you on the story that has been unfolding all morning. WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange was arrested in London this morning. He's now facing charges in the United States. He had been living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012. And we spoke earlier with WikiLeaks editor Kristinn Hrafnsson, who told us that British authorities should respect Assange's asylum there. KRISTINN HRAFNSSON: It is a gross violation of international treaties and an outrageous behavior in all respects. A country simply shouldn't revoke the status of that kind when it has been granted in the first place. GREENE: Now, the Ecuadorian government said they had cause to revoke Assange's asylum. British authorities said they were arresting him because he violated his bail and was due in court and did not show up. But this story is much more complicated because this morning, the U.S. Justice Department has charged Assange with conspiracy

Técnico Universitario vs América, el rodillo rojo andan urgidos por sumar un triunfo para escalar puestos en la tabla

Pese a conseguir un valioso punto en Ponciano al empatar 0-0 contra los albos, sin duda no sirve de mucho para Técnico Universitario en vista que aún permanece en zona de coleros en la tabla, por esta razón es fundamental ganar ante un rival directo aparte tienen mayor ventaja futbolística ya que han demostrado gran trabajo colectivo pero no han estados finos en la eficacia. Se espera el apoyo incondicional de su gente a causa de que el empuje de su hinchada es relevante para darles el respaldo a sus jugadores.

El volante con llegada, Charles Vélez, andan convencido de salir de este mal momento. “Confiar en nosotros mismos  por ahí si te complica que seis fecha no ha sumado, pero bueno a la parte te da para trabajar duro son cuatro puntos, pero si queremos pelear los Play Off tenemos que empezar a sumar de a tres teniendo que sumar como sea”, sostuvo el profesional al periodista @JavierAranda_91.

En tanto se refirió al encuentro contra América. “Va ser un contrincante complicado, por ahí ellos también quieren sumar salir de la última tabla de posición y nosotros buscamos queremos sumar los 3 puntos”, remarcó el mediocampista de los albirrojos.

Por su lado el  verdolaga estuvo a muy poco de someter a los canarios pero al final repartieron unidades al quedar 2-2, por ello aún se mantienen en la última posición con apenas tres puntos ante ello están obligados a sacar un buen resultado positivas en tierras ambateñas sabiendo que la tarea será compleja ya que el adversario buscar imperiosamente en su reducto.

El Nacional vs LDU Quito, militares buscan someter a los funebreros en el clásico añejo

La dura derrotar 3-1 obtenida frente a los camaratas, anda desconcertados en El Nacional en vista que se empieza asomar en la tabla de coleros con apenas cinco unidades sumadas, por esta razón los rojos son conscientes que deben levantar cabeza ante un viejo rival de la ciudad como es LDU Quito. Si bien es cierto llegan como favoritos los albos, no hay duda que en esta clase de compromisos los puros criollos sacan ese carácter que indudablemente nos asegura un duelo muy peleado en la mediacancha pero lo que es seguro que tendremos es muchos goles.

Por su lado el Rey de copas andan con mucha bronca tras tener una mala racha estas semanas, sabiendo la única salida es empezar a sumar de a tres sobre todo en la Serie A Ecuador, donde se ubican en el casillero diez con doce unidades a siete del líder negriazul, sin duda teniendo muy pocas posibilidades de avanzar a la siguiente ronda de copa, ahora los blancos necesitan enfocarse con todo en el campeonato domestico donde está obligado a recuperar terreno.

El buen mediocampista, Jefferson Alfredo Intriago, comprende que es un cotejo especial, el cual esperan salir de este incomodo momento. “Siempre los encuentros con ellos ha sido difícil, puede ser un partido para ellos recuperar aire en nuestro caso será una final por la mala racha que estamos teniendo por ende tenemos que esforzarnos. Lo importante del grupo es que no escuchamos nada afuera y esto lo sacamos adelante”, dijo para radio la positiva.

Para culminar fue en mencionar piensa primero en ellos, no tanto en las ausencias del rival. “Nadie duda de la gran condición que tiene Balda, estamos en una situación que solamente tenemos lo de nosotros independiente del adversario que haga, buscaremos del primer minuto porque esto es Liga de Quito, somos un cuadro que debemos revertir esto por la hinchada y la familia que lo sufre”, puntualizó el atleta nacido en Manabi.

          Ecuador: Good Bye Lenín Por Alfredo Serrano Mancilla      Comment   Translate Page      


El sector empresarial también ha marcado distancia con el presidente; lo ven muy débil, saben que se aproxima su final, y es mejor no quedar pegado a él.



Se va y él lo sabe. Ni siquiera ha llegado a los dos años y su imagen positiva sigue en caída libre. Según las dos últimas encuestas realizadas por Celag, Lenín Moreno pasó de tener un saldo neto positivo de 2,8 puntos en noviembre de 2018 a uno negativo de 19 en marzo de este año. A estas alturas, pocos creen que sea él quién esté gobernando. Con datos de la misma encuesta, la mayoría de los ecuatorianos piensa que son los grupos económicos, el Gobierno de Estados Unidos y Jaime Nebot los que realmente dirigen al país, muy por delante de la rectoría del propio presidente.

Se mire por donde se mire, Lenín tiene los días contados y él es consciente de ello. No tiene apoyo popular, como bien se demostró en los resultados de las recientes elecciones seccionales; tampoco tiene estructura partidaria propia; y ni siquiera tiene gabinete propio porque la mayoría de los ministros son representantes de intereses corporativos. Por su parte, los aliados políticos han iniciado un proceso de alejamiento sin retorno, porque ya no le necesitan para lo que fue la transición soñada que debía poner freno a Rafael Correa.

El sector empresarial también ha marcado distancia con el presidente; lo ven muy débil, saben que se aproxima su final, y es mejor no quedar pegado a él. A partir de ahora, la presión subirá. Los dueños de los dólares dejarán de liquidar exportaciones y acelerarán el proceso de llevarse el dinero al exterior gracias, precisamente, a la decisión de Lenín de eliminar el impuesto de salida de divisas. Así generarán la tormenta perfecta en base a una sensación de caos e incertidumbre, terreno en el que se mueven como pez en el agua, autoerigiéndose como imprescindibles. De esta forma, a Lenín se le va esfumando de su lado toda la batería de “amigos”, salvo los medios de comunicación, que por ahora no han virado de línea editorial, aunque les queda poco. Ya conocemos bien a estas grandes empresas: son de fácil conversión y siempre les gusta jugar con viento a favor. Seguramente ya han apostado por el nuevo caballo ganador. O sea, según ellos, Nebot.

Lenín hizo todo lo que estaba en el papel. Cumplió su tarea. Y entonces le llega su turno. Fue de usar y tirar, de la misma manera que ha sucedido con tantos otros presidentes latinoamericanos (véase el caso de Michel Temer en Brasil). Hizo lo debido en todos los frentes: a) persiguió judicialmente a Correa y a muchos otros políticos de la revolución ciudadana hasta el punto de meter preso a su propio vicepresidente; b) a marcha forzada, desmanteló todo lo que pudo del Estado para debilitarlo como mandan los cánones neoliberales; c) reformó a su antojo toda la megaestructura judicial cambiando a fiscales, jueces y miembros del Tribunal Constitucional así como al Órgano Electoral; d) en lo económico ha dado sus primeros pasos (especialmente en lo tributario) y dejado todo listo para que el FMI entre con todo, incluida la reforma laboral; y e) en lo internacional se fue rápidamente a servir a los Estados Unidos en todos los frentes: abriendo oficinas de Estados Unidos en el país para que puedan actuar como en la época de las bases militares; se lanzó contra Venezuela incluso reconociendo y recibiendo a Juan Guaidó como presidente interino; en la OEA se sumó a votar siempre según indicara el país hegemón; pidió a gritos ser miembro de la Alianza del Pacífico, y se sumó a Prosur al mismo tiempo que quiso enterrar a Unasur. Su última decisión desesperada, como manotazo de ahogado, ha sido retirar el asilo a Julian Assange, violando toda la normativa del derecho internacional, y ponérselo en bandeja a Estados Unidos para su extradición. Con ello mató dos pájaros de un tiro: por un lado, haciendo uso y abuso del Estado, se vengó de quien descubrió una trama de corrupción muy importante en la que el protagonista era él mismo, el mismísimo presidente; y, por otro lado, seguramente hizo su último gesto a favor de los Estados Unidos para que le garantizaran una salida digna y confortable al acabar su periplo presidencial.

Lenín es una magnífica demostración de que no hay que fiarse de aquel que sonríe demasiado en medio de la escena política. Quien fuera el máximo representante de la Misión Ternura acabó entregando a Assange, dando un paso definitivo para que se incrementen las probabilidades de que lo condenen a la pena de muerte. Otra paradoja más en la vida política de este personaje que se presentó en su momento como “centrista fanático”, a traer paz en tiempos de confrontación, y ciertamente sí, era verdad que no venía para confrontar, al menos no en el sentido de defender la soberanía del país, permitiendo que Estados Unidos haga de Ecuador lo mismo que hace en su vecina Colombia.

El final ya está escrito. No sabemos exactamente cuándo, pero seguramente será más pronto que tarde. Ya lo ha dicho hasta el mismo Nebot: no se puede esperar más, el 2021 es demasiado tarde. Y, por su parte, Correa sigue más vivo que nunca, lo que es inversamente proporcional al tiempo de vida política de Lenín. Las vías para salir son múltiples: muerte cruzada, revocatorio o simple renuncia y anticipo electoral. Sea como fuere el canal institucional, la política ya ha fijado la fecha de caducidad.

¡Good bye Lenín!

          Indignan: Assange y WikiLeaks...cinco preguntas y respuestas sobre la gravedad de una detención que ha sacudido el mundo....Por Redacción Vilaweb      Comment   Translate Page      
La detención del fundador de WikiLeaks constituye una enorme amenaza a la libertad de información en todo el mundo

1. ¿Quién es Julian Assange?

Julian Assange es el fundador y la cara pública de WikiLeaks, una organización internacional que ha publicado secretos oficiales que han ayudado a la sociedad a entender mejor cómo funciona el poder. Concretamente, WikiLeaks publicó unos documentos oficiales importantes relacionados con las operaciones militares de Estados Unidos en Afganistán e Irak, lo que cambió radicalmente la percepción de lo que ocurre.
WikiLeaks publicó el vídeo en el que se veía como soldados estadounidenses mataban desde un helicóptero varias personas, entre las que se encontraba un reportero de Reuters. Hasta entonces, los Estados Unidos habían negado los hechos. Posteriormente, se supo que la soldado Chelsea Manning era la fuente de la filtración. Manning fue condenada a 35 años de prisión, pero el presidente Barack Obama, en una de sus últimas decisiones, le conmutó la pena. Sin embargo, Manning volvió a entrar en prisión en marzo pasado, según WikiLeaks, a fin de presionarla para que acusara a WikiLeaks de estar detrás de su decisión de entregar aquellos documentos.
Después de la primera filtración, WikiLeaks publicó por medio de un conjunto de periódicos 92.000 documentos sobre la guerra de Afganistán entre 2004 y 2009. Los documentos demostraron comportamientos criminales del ejército de Estados Unidos, y la Casa Blanca acusó WikiLeaks de poner en peligro sus tropas. La publicación de esos documentos cambió completamente la percepción del público sobre aquella guerra.
Más adelante, el 22 de octubre de 2010, WikiLeaks publicó casi cuatrocientos mil documentos oficiales sobre la guerra de Irak que demostraban el uso sistemático de la tortura por parte del ejército de Estados Unidos y los asesinatos de civiles y gente desarmada. Se considera la mayor filtración de documentos clasificados de la historia.
El 28 de noviembre de 2010, WikiLeaks filtró una colección de 251.187 documentos de correspondencia interna del Departamento de Estado de Estados Unidos. Los documentos aportaron datos nuevos sobre una gran cantidad de cuestiones, tanto de política internacional como interna, de una multitud de estados.
Todas estas filtraciones se hicieron de acuerdo con algunos de los principales diarios y medios del mundo y tomando medidas para evitar situaciones potencialmente peligrosas para personas que no estuvieran directamente vinculadas a actuaciones ilegales.
A partir de 2010, los Estados Unidos comenzaron una intensa campaña de desprestigio y persecución de WikiLeaks que incluía dificultar técnicamente su trabajo y la difusión de las informaciones conseguidas. Por ejemplo, hicieron que las principales empresas informáticas renunciaran a alojar sus servidores y que Visa y Mastercard se negaran a aceptar donaciones para WikiLeaks. Como parte de la campaña, se reclamó la extradición de Julian Assange.

2. ¿Por qué razón Suecia pedía el  extradición?

En el marco de la campaña de presión a WikiLeaks, en noviembre de 2010, Suecia activó una orden de arresto internacional contra Julian Assange por unas acusaciones de agresión sexual y violación que él ya había negado tres meses antes cuando le interrogaron.
Assange se entregó a la policía británica, donde residía, el 7 de diciembre de 2010, y fue retenido diez días hasta que lo dejaron en libertad. Posteriormente, perdió el juicio por extradición y, antes de que el volvieran a detener, entró en la embajada de Ecuador en Londres, que le concedió asilo político. El 12 de diciembre de 2017 recibió la nacionalidad ecuatoriana.
Antes, el 19 de mayo de 2017, la fiscalía sueca había parado la investigación sobre la acusación de violación y pidió revocar la euroorden. La policía británica, sin embargo, mantiene la orden de detención por haber roto el acuerdo judicial de 2012 en refugiarse en la embajada de Ecuador.
No está claro que el Reino Unido atienda una posible demanda de extradición de Suecia o Estados Unidos. De momento, lo único que ha dicho es que no aceptará la extradición a un país donde pueda ser condenado a muerte, como sería el caso de los Estados Unidos. Cuando revocó la euroorden, Suecia advirtió que Assange podía ser detenido si entraba en Suecia antes de agosto de 2020.

3. ¿Por qué le persiguen los Estados Unidos?

Tras la publicación de los documentos militares de Estados Unidos, en 2010, el gobierno estadounidense ordenó perseguir Assange por espionaje. Documentos publicados por Edward Snowden demuestran que la justicia de Estados Unidos ha construido un caso contra Assange y espera poder extraditar para acusarlo de espionaje.
Durante la campaña electoral de 2016, WikiLeaks publicó una serie de correos electrónicos de la candidata Hillary Clinton enviados cuando era secretaria de Estado. Muchos periodistas consideran que estos correos hicieron daño a la campaña de Clinton y sirvieron para relacionarse Assange con una hipotética intervención rusa por las redes sociales para conseguir la victoria de Donald Trump.

4. ¿Cómo es que estaba refugiado en la embajada del  Ecuador en Londres y por qué le han entregado ahora?

Assange se refugió en la embajada de Ecuador cuando supo que había perdido el juicio sobre su extradición a Suecia. Expresó el temor de que las autoridades suecas, que en teoría el demandaban por delitos sexuales, el extraditado a Estados Unidos, que lo quería juzgar por espionaje.
El presidente de Ecuador en 2012, Rafael Correa, garantizó el derecho de asilo a Julian Assange por su defensa de la libertad de expresión y de la libertad de prensa y viendo que su vida corría peligro. A raíz de la detención de Assange, Correa calificó el actual presidente Lenín Moreno, que fue su vicepresidente, del ‘traidor más grande de la historia de América Latina’.
Assange residió desde entonces en una habitación de la embajada de Ecuador en Londres, sin ninguna posibilidad de salir al aire libre, más allá del balcón. Probaron varias veces de trasladarlo a Ecuador, pero las autoridades británicas advertían que pararían el vehículo si salía de la embajada, incluso si lo hacía en un vehículo oficial.
En 2015, Assange pidió el asilo político en el estado francés, pero François Hollande respondió que Assange no corría ningún peligro y que, por tanto, no había ninguna razón para darle asilo político. Islandia también se ofreció a acogerlo, pero volvió a surgir el problema de cómo abandonar el edificio de la embajada.
A partir de octubre de 2016, las relaciones entre Assange y Ecuador se complicaron por la publicación de las revelaciones de WikiLeaks durante la campaña electoral americana. Posteriormente, otras cuestiones, entre las que el apoyo de Assange al proceso de independencia de Cataluña, también le comportar problemas. El 28 de marzo de 2018, Ecuador cortó la conexión de internet a Assange por haber apoyado Carles Puigdemont raíz de la detención del presidente catalán.
El enfrentamiento con el nuevo presidente de Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, que tomó posesión del cargo hace justo un año, proviene sobre todo porque Moreno acusa Assange y WikiLeaks de la filtración de documentos que prueban su corrupción, a pesar de que Assange ha restado incomunicado desde marzo de 2018.

5. La detención de  Assange es legal?

No. La ONU ha dictaminado de manera clara que la detención de hecho de Julian Assange, obligado a permanecer dentro la embajada de Ecuador en Londres, es una detención completamente ilegal, ha pedido la liberación de Assange y una compensación por los años pasados ​​en estas condiciones.
Pero más allá de los hechos legales, la detención de Assange establece un terrible precedente que amenaza la libertad de prensa en todo el mundo, desde el momento que su persecución se basa en el hecho de que ha publicado documentos reales, muy relevantes para la sociedad entienda cómo funciona el poder. La publicación de material clasificado no puede implicar la consideración que quien lo publica es un traidor o puede ser acusado de traición. Si fuera así, ningún editor de ningún periódico se atrevería a publicar nada que no fuera autorizado. De hecho, los editores de los diarios que publicaron las filtraciones de WikiLeaks deberían estar en la misma posición de Assange desde un punto de vista lógico, teniendo en cuenta que el uno y los otros fueron los responsables de la difusión pública de unos documentos que no habían obtenido de manera directa.

1. Qui és Julian Assange?

Julian Assange és el fundador i la cara pública de WikiLeaks, una organització internacional que ha publicat secrets oficials que han ajudat la societat a entendre millor com funciona el poder. Concretament, WikiLeaks va publicar uns documents oficials importants relacionats amb les operacions militars dels Estats Units a l’Afganistan i l’Irac, fet que va canviar radicalment la percepció de què hi passa.
WikiLeaks va publicar el vídeo en què es veia com soldats americans mataven des d’un helicòpter diverses persones, entre les quals un reporter de Reuters. Fins aleshores, els Estats Units havien negat els fets. Posteriorment, es va saber que la soldat Chelsea Manning era la font de la filtració. Manning va ser condemnada a 35 anys de presó, però el president Barack Obama, en una de les seves darreres decisions, va commutar-li la pena. Tanmateix, Manning va tornar a entrar a la presó el març passat, segons WikiLeaks, per pressionar-la perquè acusés WikiLeaks de ser darrere de la seva decisió de lliurar aquells documents.
Després de la primera filtració, WikiLeaks va publicar per mitjà d’un conjunt de diaris 92.000 documents sobre la guerra de l’Afganistan entre el 2004 i el 2009. Els documents van demostrar comportaments criminals de l’exèrcit dels Estats Units, i la Casa Blanca va acusar WikiLeaks de posar en perill les seves tropes. La publicació d’aquells documents va canviar completament la percepció del públic sobre aquella guerra.
Més endavant, el 22 d’octubre de 2010, WikiLeaks va publicar gairebé quatre-cents mil documents oficials sobre la guerra de l’Irac que demostraven l’ús sistemàtic de la tortura per part de l’exèrcit dels Estats Units i els assassinats de civils i gent desarmada. Es considera la més gran filtració de documents classificats de la història.
El 28 de novembre de 2010, WikiLeaks va filtrar una col·lecció de 251.187 documents de correspondència interna del Departament d’Estat dels Estats Units. Els documents van aportar dades noves sobre una gran quantitat de qüestions, tant de política internacional com d’interna, d’una multitud d’estats.
Totes aquestes filtracions es van fer d’acord amb alguns dels principals diaris i mitjans del món i prenent mesures per a evitar situacions potencialment perilloses per a persones que no estiguessin directament vinculades a actuacions il·legals.
A partir del 2010, els Estats Units van començar una intensa campanya de desprestigi i persecució de WikiLeaks que incloïa dificultar tècnicament la seva feina i la difusió de les informacions aconseguides. Per exemple, van fer que les principals empreses informàtiques renunciessin a allotjar els seus servidors i que Visa i Mastercard es neguessin a acceptar donacions per a WikiLeaks. Com a part de la campanya, es va reclamar l’extradició de Julian Assange.

2. Per quina raó Suècia en demanava lextradició?

En el marc de la campanya de pressió a WikiLeaks, el novembre del 2010, Suècia va activar una ordre d’arrest internacional contra Julian Assange per unes acusacions d’agressió sexual i violació que ell ja havia negat tres mesos abans quan el van interrogar.
Assange es va lliurar a la policia britànica, on residia, el 7 de desembre de 2010, i va ser retingut deu dies fins que el van deixar en llibertat. Posteriorment, va perdre el judici per extradició i, abans que el tornessin a detenir, va entrar a l’ambaixada de l’Equador a Londres, que li va concedir asil polític. El 12 de desembre de 2017 va rebre la nacionalitat equatoriana.
Abans, el 19 de maig de 2017, la fiscalia sueca havia aturat la investigació sobre l’acusació de violació i va demanar de revocar l’euroordre. La policia britànica, però, manté l’ordre de detenció per haver trencat l’acord judicial del 2012 en refugiar-se a l’ambaixada de l’Equador.
No és clar que el Regne Unit atengui una possible demanda d’extradició de Suècia o els Estats Units. De moment, l’única cosa que ha dit és que no acceptarà l’extradició a un país on pugui ser condemnat a mort, com seria el cas dels Estats Units. Quan va revocar l’euroordre, Suècia va advertir que Assange podia ser detingut si entrava a Suècia abans de l’agost del 2020.

3. Per què el persegueixen els Estats Units?

Després de la publicació dels documents militars dels Estats Units, el 2010, el govern americà va ordenar de perseguir Assange per espionatge. Documents publicats per Edward Snowden demostren que la justícia dels Estats Units ha bastit un cas contra Assange i espera poder-lo extradir per acusar-lo d’espionatge.
Durant la campanya electoral del 2016, WikiLeaks va publicar un seguit de correus electrònics de la candidata Hillary Clinton enviats quan era secretària d’Estat. Molts periodistes consideren que aquests correus van fer mal a la campanya de Clinton i van servir per a relacionar Assange amb una hipotètica intervenció russa per les xarxes socials per a aconseguir la victòria de Donald Trump.

4. Com és que està refugiat a lambaixada de lEquador a Londres i per què lhan lliurat ara?

Assange es va refugiar a l’ambaixada de l’Equador quan va saber que havia perdut el judici sobre la seva extradició a Suècia. Va expressar el temor que les autoritats sueques, que en teoria el demandaven per delictes sexuals, l’extradissin als Estats Units, que el volia jutjar per espionatge.
El president de l’Equador el 2012, Rafael Correa, va garantir el dret d’asil a Julian Assange per la seva defensa de la llibertat d’expressió i de la llibertat de premsa i veient que la seva vida corria perill. Arran de la detenció d’Assange, Correa ha qualificat l’actual president Lenín Moreno, que va ser el seu vice-president, del ‘traïdor més gran de la història de l’Amèrica Llatina’.
Assange va residir des d’aleshores en una habitació de l’ambaixada de l’Equador a Londres, sense cap possibilitat de sortir a l’aire lliure, més enllà del balcó. Van provar unes quantes vegades de traslladar-lo a l’Equador, però les autoritats britàniques advertien que aturarien el vehicle si sortia de l’ambaixada, fins i tot si ho feia en un vehicle oficial.
El 2015, Assange va demanar l’asil polític a l’estat francès, però François Hollande va respondre que Assange no corria cap perill i que, per tant, no hi havia cap raó per a donar-li asil polític. Islàndia també es va oferir a acollir-lo, però va tornar a sorgir el problema de com abandonar l’edifici de l’ambaixada.
A partir de l’octubre del 2016, les relacions entre Assange i l’Equador es van complicar per la publicació de les revelacions de WikiLeaks durant la campanya electoral americana. Posteriorment, altres qüestions, entre les quals el suport d’Assange al procés d’independència de Catalunya, també li van comportar problemes. El 28 de març de 2018, l’Equador va tallar la connexió d’internet a Assange per haver donat suport a Carles Puigdemont arran de la detenció del president català.
L’enfrontament amb el nou president de l’Equador, Lenín Moreno, que va prendre possessió del càrrec ara fa just un any, prové sobretot perquè Moreno acusa Assange i WikiLeaks de la filtració de documents que proven la seva corrupció, malgrat que Assange ha restat incomunicat des del març del 2018.

5. La detenció dAssange és legal?

No. L’ONU ha dictaminat de manera clara que la detenció de fet de Julian Assange, obligat a romandre dins l’ambaixada de l’Equador a Londres, és una detenció completament il·legal, ha demanat l’alliberament d’Assange i una compensació pels anys passats en aquestes condicions.
Però més enllà dels fets legals, la detenció d’Assange estableix un terrible precedent que amenaça la llibertat de premsa a tot el món, des del moment que la seva persecució es basa en el fet que ha publicat documents reals, molt rellevants perquè la societat entengui com funciona el poder. La publicació de material classificat no pot implicar la consideració que qui el publica és un traïdor o pot ser acusat de traïció. Si fos així, cap editor de cap diari s’atreviria a publicar res que no fos autoritzat. De fet, els editors dels diaris que van publicar les filtracions de WikiLeaks haurien d’estar en la mateixa posició d’Assange des d’un punt de vista lògic, tenint en compte que l’un i els altres van ser els responsables de la difusió pública d’uns documents que no havien obtingut de manera directa.

          Ecuador-Gobierno Corrupto de Lenin Moreno-Represión: Dictan prisión en Ecuador a colaborador de Assange ....La Jornada      Comment   Translate Page      





Quito. Un juez de la Unidad de Flagrancias de Ecuador ha dictado orden de prisión preventiva contra el ciudadano sueco Ola Bini, investigado por su supuesta relación con el fundador de Wikileaks, Julian Assange. Bini está acusado de un delito de ataque a la integridad de sistemas informáticos.

Bini fue detenido en Ecuador poco después de que el Gobierno del país andino entregara a Assange a las autoridades británicas después de siete años encerrado en la Embajada ecuatoriana en Londres. En concreto fue arrestado en el Aeropuerto Internacional Mariscal Sucre de Quito cuando se disponía a viajar a Japón. Tras el arresto, fue interrogado y el juez ordenó inmovilizar sus cuentas bancarias.

La ministra del Interior de Ecuador, María Paula Romo, ha explicado que Bini residía desde hace cinco años en Ecuador y que tenía vínculos con Wikileaks. Además, ha señalado dos desplazamientos internacionales de Bini hacia Perú y España que coinciden con viajes del ex ministro de Exteriores Ricardo Patiño, quien otorgó el asilo a Assange.

Romo ha indicado que su último desplazamiento fue hacia Venezuela hace un mes y medio. "Si se ha cometido algún delito, que la justicia lo determine, lo examine, pero no podemos permitir que el Ecuador se convierta en un centro de piratería o espionaje", ha apuntado en declaraciones recogidas por el diario 'El Comercio'.

Según Romo, Bini y otros dos hackers rusos habrían participado en actos de desestabilización en coordinación con funcionarios del "régimen anterior".

Patiño, sin embargo, ha rechazado estas acusaciones y ha denunciado una persecución en su contra, ya que "no conoce" al sueco. Bini es un conocido programador, defensor del software libre y de la privacidad en Internet.

          Indignado: ¡Libertad inmediata para Julian Assange!....Pronunciamiento de la Red de Intelectuales, Artistas y Movimientos Sociales En Defensa de la Humanidad      Comment   Translate Page      
ALAI




La Red de Intelectuales, Artistas y Movimientos Sociales en Defensa de la Humanidad expresa su más solidario respaldo al periodista Julian Assange, destacado miembro de la REDH, quien ha dedicado su vida a la defensa de los derechos humanos, la libertad de expresión y el acceso a la información de interés público. Por sus extraordinarias contribuciones ha sido galardonado por The Economist, Amnistía Internacional UK, Premio Ars Electrónica, Premio Sam Adams, Medalla de Oro de la Fundación Sydney para la Paz -por su coraje excepcional e iniciativa en la defensa de los derechos humanos-, personaje del año 2010 elegido por lectoras/es de la revista Time, entre otros.

Expresamos honda preocupación por el proceder del gobierno ecuatoriano que, violando la institución del asilo, ha entregado a Julian Assange al gobierno británico, con un altísimo riesgo de extradición a Estados Unidos donde su vida corre peligro. Rechazamos los pretextos utilizados por el gobierno de Ecuador para justificarse, tales como la acusación de haber “intervenido en asuntos internos de otros Estados”, e incluso de una presunta intromisión en “intentos de desestabilización de Ecuador” imputada a Wikileaks.

Nos preocupa que el gobierno de Lenín Moreno aduzca precautelar la protección nacional, “evitar que el país se convierta en un centro de delitos informáticos”, mientras que, como parte de una acción que deja nefastos precedentes, él mismo emitió en 2018 un Protocolo Especial de Visitas, Comunicaciones y Atención Médica, que sometió al asilado a una serie de restricciones de sus libertades fundamentales y coartó su derecho a la comunicación, suprimiéndo hasta el acceso a la conectividad, a la información y a la expresión.

Recordamos que los siete años de asilo de Julian Assange –convertidos en reclusión en los dos últimos- obedecen a persecución política, a represalia por la difusión de materiales que Wikileaks liberó y difundió, al amparo de la transparencia de la información. Las informaciones y datos sobre política internacional y geopolítica, pusieron en evidencia crímenes de guerra y prácticas injerencistas de los gobiernos de varios países y grupos de poder, principalmente de los Estados Unidos, país que aspira a lograr una pronta extradición y juzgamiento.

La Red de Intelectuales, Artistas y Movimientos Sociales en Defensa de la Humanidad, organización mundial defensora de los derechos humanos y del Derecho a la información y la Libertad de Expresión, hace un llamado vigoroso al gobierno del Reino Unido a mantener una observancia estricta de los principios e instrumentos de derechos humanos, que en el caso incluyen una ‘protección especial’, como estipula el Informe de la Organización de Naciones Unidas sobre Assange (Opinion No.54/2015concerning Julian Assange) y la Opinión de la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos. Esta protección debe excluir cualquier escenario de extradición a los Estados Unidos, toda vez que Scotland Yard ha reconocido que la detención obedece a un pedido con ese propósito, formulado por ese país.

Llamamos a la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, a su Asamblea General y a todos los mecanismos de defensa de los Derechos Humanos, a hacer respetar la protección referida en sus ‘Informes Especiales’ -A/HRC/WGAD/2015/54-, y proteger la vida del periodista Julian Assange, perseguido político, que merece un tratamiento humanitario, con apego estricto e incondicional a la legislación internacional.

Convocamos a los gremios de periodistas, organismos defensores de la libertad de expresión y del derecho a la comunicación, a los movimientos sociales y populares, a las entidades defensoras de los derechos humanos y otras organizaciones, a movilizarse para exigir al Reino Unido la libertad de Assange, pues las acusaciones fraguadas que pesaban sobre él ya fueron desvanecidas y no subsiste ninguna acusación fundada.

¡Libertad inmediata para Julian Assange!

          Ecuador-Indignado: Correa concede entrevista a HispanTV sobre arresto de Assange....      Comment   Translate Page      



El expresidente de Ecuador, Rafael Correa, ha concedido una entrevista a HispanTV en la que aborda el arresto del fundador de Wikileaks, Julian Assange. Durante una entrevista concedida este jueves a HispanTV, Rafael Correa ha abordado los motivos del retiro del asilo y el arresto del fundador del portal Wikileaks, el periodista y activista australiano Julian Assange por la Policía del Reino Unido. Tras casi 7 años recluido en la embajada de Ecuador en Londres, la capital británica, Assange fue detenido por la Policía del Reino Unido después de que el presidente ecuatoriano, Lenín Moreno, le haya retirado al activista el asilo “por violar reiteradamente convenciones internacionales y el protocolo de convivencia”. El periodista ha sido arrestado tras romper el Gobierno de Moreno, el asilo concedido por su predecesor, Rafael Correa, en 2012, desde cuando Assange permanecía internado en la sede diplomática de Ecuador en la capital británica.

          John Pilger: Assange Arrest A Warning From History       Comment   Translate Page      

via John Pilger,

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.

Imagine Tony Blair dragged from his multi-million pound Georgian home in Connaught Square, London, in handcuffs, for onward dispatch to the dock in The Hague. By the standard of Nuremberg, Blair’s “paramount crime” is the deaths of a million Iraqis. Assange’s crime is journalism: holding the rapacious to account, exposing their lies and empowering people all over the world with truth.

The shocking arrest of Assange carries a warning for all who, as Oscar Wilde wrote, “sew the seeds of discontent [without which] there would be no advance towards civilization.” The warning is explicit towards journalists. What happened to the founder and editor of WikiLeaks can happen to you on a newspaper, you in a TV studio, you on radio, you running a podcast.

Assange’s principal media tormentor, The Guardian, a collaborator with the secret state, displayed its nervousness this week with an editorial that scaled new weasel heights. The Guardian has exploited the work of Assange and WikiLeaks in what its previous editor called “the greatest scoop of the last 30 years.” The paper creamed off WikiLeaks’ revelations and claimed the accolades and riches that came with them.

With not a penny going to Julian Assange or to WikiLeaks, a hyped Guardian book led to a lucrative Hollywood movie. The book’s authors, Luke Harding and David Leigh, turned on their source, abused him and disclosed the secret password Assange had given the paper in confidence, which was designed to protect a digital file containing leaked US embassy cables.

Revealing Homicidal Colonial Wars

When Assange was still trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy, Harding joined police outside and gloated on his blog that “Scotland Yard may get the last laugh.” The Guardian then published a series of falsehoods about Assange, not least a discredited claim that a group of Russians and Trump’s man, Paul Manafort, had visited Assange in the embassy. The meetings never happened; it was fake.

But the tone has now changed. “The Assange case is a morally tangled web,” the paper opined. “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 exposé 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 is all available on the WikiLeaks site.

The Guardian is understandably nervous. Secret policemen have already visited the newspaper and demanded and got the ritual destruction of a hard drive. On this, the paper has form. In 1983, a Foreign Office clerk, Sarah Tisdall, leaked British Government documents showing when American cruise nuclear weapons would arrive in Europe. The Guardian was showered with praise.

When a court order demanded to know the source, instead of the editor going to prison on a fundamental principle of protecting a source, Tisdall was betrayed, prosecuted and served six months.

If Assange is extradited to America for publishing what The Guardian calls truthful “things,” what is to stop the current editor, Katherine Viner, following him, or the previous editor, Alan Rusbridger, or the prolific propagandist Luke Harding?

What is to stop the editors of The New York Times and The Washington Post, who also published morsels of the truth that originated with WikiLeaks, and the editor of El Pais in Spain, and Der Spiegel in Germany and The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia. The list is long.

David McCraw, lead lawyer of The New York Times, wrote: “I think the prosecution [of Assange] would be a very, very bad precedent for publishers … from everything I know, he’s sort of in a classic publisher’s position and the law would have a very hard time distinguishing between The New York Times and WikiLeaks.”

Even if journalists who published WikiLeaks’ leaks are not summoned by an American grand jury, the intimidation of Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning will be enough. Real journalism is being criminalized by thugs in plain sight. Dissent has become an indulgence.

In Australia, the current America-besotted government is prosecuting two whistle-blowers who revealed that Canberra’s spooks bugged the cabinet meetings of the new government of East Timor for the express purpose of cheating the tiny, impoverished nation out of its proper share of the oil and gas resources in the Timor Sea. Their trial will be held in secret. The Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, is infamous for his part in setting up concentration camps for refugees on the Pacific islands of Nauru and Manus, where children self harm and suicide. In 2014, Morrison proposed mass detention camps for 30,000 people.

Journalism: a Major Threat

Real journalism is the enemy of these disgraces. A decade ago, the Ministry of Defense in London produced a secret document which described the “principal threats” to public order as threefold: terrorists, Russian spies and investigative journalists. The latter was designated the major threat.

The document was duly leaked to WikiLeaks, which published it. “We had no choice,” Assange told me. “It’s very simple. People have a right to know and a right to question and challenge power. That’s true democracy.”

What if Assange and Manning and others in their wake — if there are others — are silenced and “the right to know and question and challenge” is taken away?

In the 1970s, I met Leni Reifenstahl, close friend of Adolf Hitler, whose films helped cast the Nazi spell over Germany.

She told me that the message in her films, the propaganda, was dependent not on “orders from above” but on what she called the “submissive void” of the public.

“Did this submissive void include the liberal, educated bourgeoisie?” I asked her.

“Of course,” she said, “especially the intelligentsia …. When people no longer ask serious questions, they are submissive and malleable. Anything can happen.”

And did. The rest, she might have added, is history.

Kirolbet Baskonia

84 - 82

Morabanc Andorra

 

El Kirolbet Baskonia regresaba a calor del Buesa Arena para seguir sumando en la Liga Endesa. Los vitorianos asentados en la tercera plaza recibían a un Morabanc Andorra que busca una plaza en los Play-offs. El objetivo de los de Perasovic era claro, sumar una victoria que les certifique de manera matemática su presencia en las rondas por el título e ir recuperando sensaciones y moral para una próxima semana donde el CSKA y los cuartos de la Euroliga son el principal objetivo.

Ninguno de los dos equipos andaba fino en los primeros compases del partido, más errores que aciertos fruto de la precipitación, el 6-5 con el que se superaba el ecuador de este primer cuarto lo decía todo. Perasovic daba entrada a Shengelia y Hilliard para meter algo más de pólvora en un Baskonia frio y desacertado en ataque, pero estos cambios no daban el resultado esperado y el Morabanc Andorra no se despegaba (8-8 min.7).

Parecía que el Baskonia se escapaba con un providencial triple de Shields, pero ahí estaba Rafa Luz para responder con cuatro puntos consecutivos, una reacción que dejaba a los de Ibon Navarro a tan solo un punto del rival. Tras el frio inicio entrabamos una dinámica de intercambio de canastas, ambos equipos habían despertado y afinado su puntería, igualdad para cerrar este primer cuarto (20-18).

Un triple de Jelinek ponía por delante a los andorranos, pero poco les duraba la alegría puesto que el Baskonia respondía de manera inmediata y contundente, un 7-0 de parcial para volver a poner las cosas en su sitio (25-21 min.13). El partido estaba siendo un continuo tira y afloja, rachas por parte de ambos equipos y ventajas mínimas, ahora era Shurna el que asumía la responsabilidad anotadora de los andorranos, acciones de calidad para evitar que su equipo se descolgara en el marcador (29-26 min.15). El Kirobet Baskonia amarraba un valioso botín de siete puntos que supo mantener y aumentar pese a los intentos de remontada del rival, los vitorianos enfilaban el túnel de vestuarios con un 42-31.

Shurna y Rafa Luz volvían a encender la chispa del conjunto andorrano en un intento de volver a comprimir la ventaja. La energía de Diagne en defensa no bastaba para dar caza a un Baskonia que mantenía un colchón de puntos que rondaba la decena de puntos (51-41 min.27). Pese a ello los de Ibon Navarro no bajaban los brazos, un triple de Albicy y una buena acción ofensiva de Diagne acercaban a los andorranos en el marcador para cerrar este tercer cuarto con un 57-52 que mantenía el partido abierto.

El Morabanc Andorra seguía intentando dar caza a los locales, aprovechaba el momento de “pájara” ofensiva baskonista para acercarse y, nuevamente, comprimir el marcador (66-62 min.34). Shengelia y Garino aparecían cuando más lo necesitaba el Baskonia, canastas que daban tranquilidad y cortaban la espectacular reacción de los de Ibon Navarro (72-64 min.36).

Shurna y Jelinek hacían soñar con la remontada (78-76 min.39), momento crítico para un Baskonia que anotaba con cuentagotas. Los tiros libres se convertían en aliados inesperados para un Baskonia que estaba ya pidiendo la hora, 39 segundos que se hacían eternos. Diagne, con un espectacular mate, ponía el 82-79 a falta de 11 segundos, pero los tiros libres de Marcelinho Huertas bastaban para amarrar la victoria, un triple de Jelinek ponía el 84-82 final.

          La encrucijada de Luka Modric      Comment   Translate Page      

Es un futbolista hecho para el Real Madrid y él lo sabe. Lo supo desde que destacó en el Tottenham y escuchó el mensaje de los emisarios del club español. Su juego ofensivo y su calidad brillarían en el conjunto blanco mejor que en ningún otro lugar, porque el equipo madrileño se define por el ataque constante y estaría rodeado de hombres de similar nivel al suyo. No hubo que explicarle más datos. Como subraya Zidane, «a Luka hay que decirle pocas cosas». Fichó por el Madrid hace siete años, tras forzar su marcha ante Daniel Levy, dueño del Tottenham, y ha triunfado en España. Cuando conquistó su cuarta Champions vaticinó que sería muy difícil repetir lo que ha conseguido «un equipo que ha marcado esta época». Ese éxito y su excelente Mundial en Rusia, al frente de Croacia, le elevaron a la gloria. Recibió el Balón de Oro del Mundial, el premio The Best y el Balón de Oro que todos conocemos. Desgastado por esa campaña épica, sin descanso real en el verano, esta temporada no ha rendido.

Si se queda: tendrá contrato hasta 2021. En esta hipótesis, jugará hasta los 35 años y 9 meses en el conjunto blanco. Y recibirá un aumento de ficha. El nuevo contrato hasta 2021 significará un aumento salarial en reconocimiento a su Balón de Oro y su rendimiento a lo largo de siete años .

Tiene 33 años y ahora se plantea el dilema: continuar en el Real Madrid y retirarse aquí o marcharse a otro club y firmar un último gran contrato. Modric se encuentra en una encrucijada personal. Tras alcanzar su máximo apogeo hace un año, ha comenzado el descenso de su curva de rendimiento por razones lógicas de edad. Cumple los 34 el 9 de septiembre.

Si se queda podrá continuar después en la casa. Modric colgaría las botas en junio de 2021 y, si lo desea, permanecerá en la entidad como hombre cualificado del madridismo, como lo son hoy Roberto Carlos y Arbeloa

Observa que su club tiene que cubrirse las espaldas ante el futuro y desea contratar un centrocampista ofensivo. El informe de la dirección deportiva aconseja la adquisición de un mediocampista que dispare y tenga gol, que es la solución cuando los delanteros no pueden marcar. El Real Madrid ha tenido esa asignatura pendiente desde hace tiempo, pues ni Kroos ni Modric tiran a portería con asiduidad. Ancelotti ya se lo dijo al croata: «Solo te falta disparar más desde fuera del área». La presencia de Cristiano exigió habitualmente pases al portugués. Su promedio es de un tiro a puerta por partido, tanto con Ronaldo como ahora, sin él. Pogba y Pjanic son los primeros candidatos en ese objetivo de reforzar la línea media con visión de ataque.

No hay que estudiar tres carreras para entender que si se ejecuta una de esas operaciones, Modric o Kroos serán los primeros afectados. Uno de los dos, o ambos, perderán su condición de titulares fijos.

El mejor asistente blanco, siete pases de gol

El Balón de Oro tenía asegurada por contrato la renovación con el Real Madrid por un año más, hasta 2021, y debe decidir si ejerce ese derecho y sigue en la entidad dos temporadas más, hasta los 36, y se retira aquí, o si aprueba una de las ofertas que posee, entre ellas la del Inter, que sigue perenne y que le destinaría posteriormente a China para ganar allí una ficha similar a las de la Premier. La decisión no es fácil. El club madrileño le ha concedido esta campaña extraordinaria de contrato en reconocimiento a su buen hacer durante siete años y al Balón de Oro, el colofón de su carrera profesional.

Si se queda, disfrutará de un aumento económico de su ficha. En la cúpula de la casa se analiza que es un futbolista que no ha dado un problema a la entidad y Modric sabe que, de permanecer en el equipo, podrá continuar en la empresa una vez cuelgue las botas. Será un representante cualificado del madridismo, como lo son Roberto Carlos y Álvaro Arbeloa en la actualidad.

La disquisición de Modric es si debe seguir en el Real Madrid. Este curso no ha funcionado a su nivel y augura que habrá un cambio general en un equipo dirigido y remodelado por petición de Zidane. No quiere ser un suplente de lujo o un titular discontinuo. Tiene el Balón de Oro en su palmarés y no puede vivir esa realidad.

El balance de la temporada refleja que ha disputado 41 partidos, pero ha sumado 3.192 minutos reales de juego porque fue sustituido por Lopetegui y por Solari en una docena de ocasiones. Los dos preparadores le dieron encuentros para que pudiera adquirir la forma, tras el enorme esfuerzo del Mundial, que pasó su precio, pues Modric no tuvo un verdadero asueto en vacaciones, ya que jugó la final de la Supercopa de Europa en el ecuador de agosto. Alcanzó su mejor momento físico en enero. Sin ser su mejor «perfomance», lleva cuatro goles y es el primer futbolista del Real Madrid en asistencias, siete.

Zidane le hablará claro

Zidane ha manifestado al club y a sus pupilos que está centrado en ganar las siete jornadas de Liga que restan y no piensa dialogar sobre el futuro de cada futbolista hasta que finalice el campeonato, el 19 de mayo. El entrenador hablará muy claro con Modric. Se conocen bien y no habrá rodeos con el jefe del fútbol del Real Madrid en el césped. El croata ha sido la extensión en el campo de Zidane durante el último trienio. El técnico francés le dirá sin tapujos si a partir del mes de agosto será titular con él, si rotará con un posible fichaje o si directamente le aconseja marcharse porque comenzará como suplente y podría aprovechar una última gran oferta económica casi con 34 años.

Una etapa prodigiosa

Ancelotti se lo quiso llevar al Bayern hace dos veranos y el croata dijo «no». El Inter lo intentó hace diez meses sin pagar un traspaso, en una presión de los representantes sobre el Real Madrid que recibió respuesta del club español con una denuncia contra el equipo italiano, presentada en la FIFA. Los dirigentes interistas solo querían abonar 18 millones de transferencia, el dinero que le permitía el «fair play» financiero de la UEFA. La denuncia acabó con la intentona.

La diatriba interior de «Lukita», como le llama el vestuario, es grande. El centrocampista siempre hace balances analíticos de su carrera y piensa que, con cuatro Copas de Europa, se encuentra a una de emular la legendaria era de Di Stéfano y Gento. Le gustaría empatar con aquel gran Real Madrid. Está a gusto en la entidad y tiene amigos que serán para siempre, como Ramos y Keylor. Le dolería dejar el equipo donde ha logrado más éxitos de los que pudo soñar. Solo una exposición clara de un futuro incierto le hará marcharse.

          Steve Jobs habría padecido VIH que ocasionó su muerte, Wikileaks filtra pruebas      Comment   Translate Page      
Luego de la detención del fundador de Wikileaks, Julian Assange, y tras casi 7 años asilado en la embajada de Ecuador en Londres, la compañía habría liberado algunos documentos clasificados.

Uno de los archivos desclasificados tendría que ver con el fundador de Apple, Steve Jobs, quien presuntamente fue diagnosticado VIH el 1 septiembre de 2004.



Aunque se desconoce si Jobs conocía su condición médica respecto al VIH, el empresario sí habría muerto de cáncer pancreático, ya que, de los dos consentimientos médicos liberados por Wikileaks, uno de ellos dice que el exCEO de Apple firma de enterado para realizarse una cirugía de cáncer "pancreático renal" en un centro médico de California.

La filtración de los documentos no especifíca si la muerte de Steve Jobs se debió a complicaciones de cáncer y el VIH que padecía.




Los documentos filtrados están publicados en el sitio el archivo de Wikileaks.
          Se deslinda Inglaterra de juicio a Julian Assange, fundador de Wikileaks      Comment   Translate Page      
Más de 70 legisladores británicos pidieron al gobierno que se asegure de que el fundador de WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, enfrenta a la justicia en Suecia si la fiscalía del país reabre un caso por violación en su contra.

En una carta firmada el viernes en la noche, los diputados instaron al secretario de Interior, Sajid Javid, a "hacer todo lo posible para promover acciones que aseguren que Julian Assange pueda ser extraditado a Suecia en el caso de que Suecia presente una solicitud de extradición”.

Las autoridades judiciales suecas suspendieron su investigación sobre un presunto delito sexual grave hace dos años ante la imposibilidad de acceder al activista australiano, que estaba refugiado en la embajada de Ecuador de Londres con estatus de asilo político.

Assange fue arrestado el jueves luego de que el gobierno de Quito le retiró la protección. Está detenido por las autoridades británicas y se enfrenta a una solicitud de extradición a Estados Unidos por la acusación de conspiración para entrar en una computadora del Pentágono.

El fundador de WikiLeaks, que niega haber cometido delito alguno, está en la prisión de Belmarsh, en el sureste de Londres, a la espera de una condena por violar los términos de la libertad bajo fianza en el país y tiene previsto luchar contra el pedido de extradición a Estados Unidos.

          John Pilger: Assange Arrest A Warning From History       Comment   Translate Page      

via John Pilger,

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.

Imagine Tony Blair dragged from his multi-million pound Georgian home in Connaught Square, London, in handcuffs, for onward dispatch to the dock in The Hague. By the standard of Nuremberg, Blair’s “paramount crime” is the deaths of a million Iraqis. Assange’s crime is journalism: holding the rapacious to account, exposing their lies and empowering people all over the world with truth.

The shocking arrest of Assange carries a warning for all who, as Oscar Wilde wrote, “sew the seeds of discontent [without which] there would be no advance towards civilization.” The warning is explicit towards journalists. What happened to the founder and editor of WikiLeaks can happen to you on a newspaper, you in a TV studio, you on radio, you running a podcast.

Assange’s principal media tormentor, The Guardian, a collaborator with the secret state, displayed its nervousness this week with an editorial that scaled new weasel heights. The Guardian has exploited the work of Assange and WikiLeaks in what its previous editor called “the greatest scoop of the last 30 years.” The paper creamed off WikiLeaks’ revelations and claimed the accolades and riches that came with them.

With not a penny going to Julian Assange or to WikiLeaks, a hyped Guardian book led to a lucrative Hollywood movie. The book’s authors, Luke Harding and David Leigh, turned on their source, abused him and disclosed the secret password Assange had given the paper in confidence, which was designed to protect a digital file containing leaked US embassy cables.

Revealing Homicidal Colonial Wars

When Assange was still trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy, Harding joined police outside and gloated on his blog that “Scotland Yard may get the last laugh.” The Guardian then published a series of falsehoods about Assange, not least a discredited claim that a group of Russians and Trump’s man, Paul Manafort, had visited Assange in the embassy. The meetings never happened; it was fake.

But the tone has now changed. “The Assange case is a morally tangled web,” the paper opined. “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 exposé 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 is all available on the WikiLeaks site.

The Guardian is understandably nervous. Secret policemen have already visited the newspaper and demanded and got the ritual destruction of a hard drive. On this, the paper has form. In 1983, a Foreign Office clerk, Sarah Tisdall, leaked British Government documents showing when American cruise nuclear weapons would arrive in Europe. The Guardian was showered with praise.

When a court order demanded to know the source, instead of the editor going to prison on a fundamental principle of protecting a source, Tisdall was betrayed, prosecuted and served six months.

If Assange is extradited to America for publishing what The Guardian calls truthful “things,” what is to stop the current editor, Katherine Viner, following him, or the previous editor, Alan Rusbridger, or the prolific propagandist Luke Harding?

What is to stop the editors of The New York Times and The Washington Post, who also published morsels of the truth that originated with WikiLeaks, and the editor of El Pais in Spain, and Der Spiegel in Germany and The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia. The list is long.

David McCraw, lead lawyer of The New York Times, wrote: “I think the prosecution [of Assange] would be a very, very bad precedent for publishers … from everything I know, he’s sort of in a classic publisher’s position and the law would have a very hard time distinguishing between The New York Times and WikiLeaks.”

Even if journalists who published WikiLeaks’ leaks are not summoned by an American grand jury, the intimidation of Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning will be enough. Real journalism is being criminalized by thugs in plain sight. Dissent has become an indulgence.

In Australia, the current America-besotted government is prosecuting two whistle-blowers who revealed that Canberra’s spooks bugged the cabinet meetings of the new government of East Timor for the express purpose of cheating the tiny, impoverished nation out of its proper share of the oil and gas resources in the Timor Sea. Their trial will be held in secret. The Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, is infamous for his part in setting up concentration camps for refugees on the Pacific islands of Nauru and Manus, where children self harm and suicide. In 2014, Morrison proposed mass detention camps for 30,000 people.

Journalism: a Major Threat

Real journalism is the enemy of these disgraces. A decade ago, the Ministry of Defense in London produced a secret document which described the “principal threats” to public order as threefold: terrorists, Russian spies and investigative journalists. The latter was designated the major threat.

The document was duly leaked to WikiLeaks, which published it. “We had no choice,” Assange told me. “It’s very simple. People have a right to know and a right to question and challenge power. That’s true democracy.”

What if Assange and Manning and others in their wake — if there are others — are silenced and “the right to know and question and challenge” is taken away?

In the 1970s, I met Leni Reifenstahl, close friend of Adolf Hitler, whose films helped cast the Nazi spell over Germany.

She told me that the message in her films, the propaganda, was dependent not on “orders from above” but on what she called the “submissive void” of the public.

“Did this submissive void include the liberal, educated bourgeoisie?” I asked her.

“Of course,” she said, “especially the intelligentsia …. When people no longer ask serious questions, they are submissive and malleable. Anything can happen.”

And did. The rest, she might have added, is history.

          China, Russia "Spread Disorder" And "Corruption" In Latin America: Pompeo      Comment   Translate Page      

Speaking Friday in Chile upon the start of his three-day South American tour, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called out China and Russia for spreading "disorder" in Latin America through failing investment projects that only fuel corruption and undermine democracy, especially in places like Venezuela. 

According to Bloomberg, Pompeo specifically listed a failing dam project in Ecuador, police advisory programs in Nicaragua, and Chinese loans to the Maduro government, which goes further back to Chavez.

Pompeo asserted Chinese loans in Latin America “often injects corrosive capital into the economic bloodstream, giving life to corruption, and eroding good governance.” Both Beijing and Moscow have ultimately spread their economic tentacles into the region to “spread disorder,” he added.

In what appears an effort to sustain momentum toward pressuring regime change in Caracas, America's highest diplomat met Chilean President Sebastian Pinera earlier Friday, and will hit Paraguay, Peru next, and finally on Sunday will travel to a Colombian town on the border with Venezuela.

Pompeo and Piñera also generally discussed the U.S.-China trade war and Beijing's “Belt and Road” initiative, with Pompeo suggesting he was optimistic about solving the tariff war with China. But the focus remained finding a US-desired outcome to the Venezuela crisis. 

According to Bloomberg

As part of the broader pressure campaign on Maduro, Pompeo said the U.S. has revoked visas for 718 people and sanctioned over 150 individuals and entities. On Friday, the U.S. sanctioned four companies it says transport much of the 50,000 barrels of oil that Venezuela provides to Cuba each day.

Late last month Pompeo had even more directly addressed Moscow, calling on Russia to “cease its unconstructive behavior” after it deployed a small troop contingency to Caracas to service existing military equipment contracts. Notably, Venezuela also has Russia's S-300 air defense missile system, which over the past month have been reported deployed to a key airbase south of the capital of Caracas. 

And in February Pompeo claimed in an interview with Fox News that "Hezbollah has active cells in Venezuela" — an assertion that has seemed to disappear from the spotlight of late. 

China, for its part, has proactively offered to help Venezuela with its failing power grid, after a series of devastating mass outages over the past month has resulted in "medieval" conditions amidst an already collapsing infrastructure. Beijing also recently denied it has deployed troops to Venezuela after media reports a week ago cited online photos which appeared to show a Chinese military transport plane deployed to Caracas. 


          I’m Jumping Off the Trump Train: Assange Was the Last Straw      Comment   Translate Page      


I’m Jumping Off the Trump Train: Assange Was the Last Straw

I’m Jumping Off the Trump Train: Assange Was the Last Straw


On March 6, 2016, this Deplorable issued a statement formally endorsing Donald J. Trump for the presidency of the United State.
I now hereby withdraw that endorsement.
No doubt this declaration from your Working Boy will be greeted with the same deafening indifference as my earlier less than earth-shattering announcement of support.
Keep calm. The planet will continue to spin on its axis at a 23.44 degree tilt.
As I tweeted on April 4, when it appeared that Ecuadorian President Lenín [sic] Moreno was going to cough up Julian Assange:
“If this comes to pass & #JulianAssange is brought to #US in chains like a Gaulish chieftain in a Roman triumph can we definitively declare that any possible #Trump revolution is over & the #DeepState won?”
A quick perusal of social media since Assange’s arrest shows that many others have reached a similar conclusion.
But why? To be sure, there have been other betrayals. The two strikes on Syria on phony chemical warfare accusations come immediately to mind. Or Trump’s failure to build the Mexican wall, coupled with repeated humiliating defeats in Congress with the predictability of Charlie Brown’s getting suckered by Lucy into trying to kick the football.
At the same time there were excuses. On Syria, maybe the President was fed false intelligence. Or maybe Ivanka was upsetDaaaddyyy, you have to dooo something! Or maybe Trump knew the CW accusations against Damascus were fake but felt he had to act (an ominous sign in itself) to deflect charges of being Putin’s puppet, hence what could be deemed deliberately pinprick pro forma strikes. On the wall, well you can’t trust lawyers’ advice, he just doesn’t understand his legal authority well enough, or maybe he…
But the Assange arrest and his upcoming renditi– – oops! – extradition to the United States are different.  There’s no nuance. No excuse. No false intel report. No poor legal advice.
It’s plain and simple. The same entities (Deep State, permanent government, the oligarchy, the Borg, whatever term you like) that targeted Trump with the phony Russia collusion narrative  want Assange’s scalp nailed to the wall. It’s one thing for favored outlets like the Washington Post and CNN to disseminate classified information that favors the Deep State, quite another to reveal information contrary to its interests. As the premier dispenser of embarrassing secrets that facilitates online dissidence from the established narrative (also under attack by governments and their tech giant accomplices) an example must be made of Assange pour encourager les autres. He can count on being sentenced to rotting for decades in a nasty Office Space federal prison (the US will gladly waive the death penalty to spare the Brits’ prissy Euro-consciences) but may very well die soon enough of natural causes, perhaps like Slobodan Milošević.
An essential role in Assange’s betrayal by Moreno was played by Trump’s Veep Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Former President Rafael Correa says a direct condition of Moreno’s getting a $4.2 billion IMF loan was Assange’s head on a platter. That’s a lot more plausible than establishment media reports that Assange was ejected for transgressing the Ecuadorians’ fastidious hygiene standards, which (whether based in fact or not) are just cynical defamations to justify his upcoming lynching.
It’s irrelevant whether Trump – who theoretically is the boss of all US agency operatives working with their Brit colleagues to get their mitts on Assange – let the nab go forward because he was unwilling to order his minions to stand down or was powerless to do so. In that regard, it’s similar to pointlessly asking why he has the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad national security team he does. Is it because of “Javanka”? Is it because he’s beholden to a gaggle of oligarchs? (Supposedly his being a self-financed billionaire made him immune from such influences.)  Is it areflection of a personality disorder?
In the end it doesn’t matter why, all that matters is what is. With Assange’s arrest Trump is now exposed as the wholly owned subsidiary of the Swamp he ran against.  He’s now just a wheel fixed to an axle. All he can do now is it spin.
In my 2016 endorsement I asked the questions – only questions, not predictions – of what Trump might hopefully accomplish:
‘Can we trust Trump? Will he build his wall and secure our borders? Renovate our deteriorating infrastructure? Restore our manufacturing base? Audit the Federal Reserve and defenestrate the banksters? Restore the GOP’s long-lost reputation (now hardly remembered by anyone) as the “Peace Party” that got us out of wars the Democrats started? Sign a bill to defund Planned Parenthood, as long as they continue to perform abortions (which they will)? Exclude actual or potential Islamic terroristsDump our freeloading so-called “allies”? Cease the PC trashing of every tradition in which Americans once took pride? Reunite a nation sundered by Barack Obama and the GOP mandarins, with their divide et impera Punch and Judy show of class and racial discord?
‘Can Trump really “Make America Great Again”? Or at least slow our decline and give our country another chance?
‘I don’t know.  But I do know that none of the more mannerly politicians served up by the oligarchy will.
“Trust not in princes…” (Ps. 146:3) Neither Trump nor any other politician should be accepted on blind faith. Who really can say if Trump can win or if he does how he would govern. Who can say what’s really in his mind and heart or if, in God’s eyes, he’s a good man or a bad one. But given the dire warning from the likes of Mitt Romney, I like the odds with Trump better than with any of the available alternatives. When the character of his enemies is considered – particularly Warfare State neoconservatives (some of whom at least have the honesty to defect openly to Hillary) – my willingness to gamble on him only increases.’
Even in retrospect it was then a gamble worth taking, indeed the only responsible choice given the horrifying alternative. More, given what Trump promised that departed from the usual nonsense served up by the GOP, the fact that Trump got the nomination instead of the NPCs on the shelf was itself perhaps a sign of that the historic American nation still had a fighting chance.
As for what we hoped he might deliver to “Make America Great Again,” we can see now that the answers to all of the above questions are and will remain an emphatic No. Sure, we got a marginally better tax bill passed, something that any Republican White House and Congress would have done. He may have made minor progress on trade.  If we are really lucky, he’ll get another Supreme Court pick and Roe v. Wade will be overturned – marvelous to be sure, but it won’t same this country.
Trump has utterly failed to control the border, much less deal with related issues like remittances, birthright citizenship, and aliens illegally voting. As retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor observes: “Surely, Trump should have concluded by now that without an Executive Order that commits the U.S. Army to the defense of the southern border and limits cross-border traffic to legitimate commercial activity, mass illegal immigration will not stop… In a word, Trump refuses to take command and match rhetoric with action, then he will join the pantheon of failed presidents that promised the world only, this time, the American Republic’s existence hangs in the balance.”
Unfortunately, Trump’s appointees – uniformly neoconservatives, Bush-era warmongers, and GOP apparatchiki – have better things for our military to do than defending our own country, to which they are at best indifferent. We can be thankful that Trump hasn’t started any new wars, yet, but his underlings’ dogged commitment to regime change in Venezuela and Iran may change that. His outreach to North Korea hangs by a thread in the face of blatant attempts to sabotage it.
One hopes that at least some animal-level gut instinct will preclude Trump’s crossing that dark river and ruining what’s left of his presidency as George W. Bush did in Iraq. If his lunatics are reckless enough to stumble us into a war with Russia, Trump’s reelection will be the least of anyone’s concerns.
Even without a war his remaining time in office will not be the revival of America that he promised. Let’s keep in mind that for many decades now transformative Democratic presidents have not left this country the same way they found it: FDR, LBJ, Clinton, Obama. By contrast, Republican presidents’ tenures have been at best plateaus along our decline (Eisenhower, Reagan) or positively contributed (Nixon, the two Bushes) to the march of what the Left regards as “Progress” toward their abolition of the historic America and birth of a dystopian Cultural Marxist dictatorship of victims: a borderless, multiethnic, multilingual, multireligious, multisexual, ahistorical, fake country.
Perhaps the saddest thing is that even if he survives in office until the 2020 vote (and he might not) Trump still will almost certainly be the lesser of two evils, in the manner to which we have become accustomed. Despite his no longer representing a threat to the Swamp, the critters will continue to hate him anyway as an avatar of the America they seek to destroy: European ethnicity, Christian (culturally if not spiritually or morally), English-speaking, toxically masculine. He might even win, given the Wall Street and Democratic Socialist Democrats’ ripping each others’ guts out and the solid 35 to 40 percent of the folks who think from Trump’s tweets and stump speeches he’s actually delivering on his promises.
Either way, though, the outcome will be the same. The man who had what is almost certainly to have been the last peaceful, political chance save what’s left of the American republic will thrash around for a few more years, having become little more than a catalyst for our nation’s demise and perhaps its dissolution.
This is not to say that there is no hope. Maybe tomorrow Trump will pardon Assange. Maybe he’ll decide to militarize the Mexican border. Maybe he’ll fire his whole national security team and, for good measure, pull us out of Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq – and NATO. Maybe Barr really will hold the FISA miscreants to account. Maybe…
…maybe there will be an outpouring of miracles that match the one that occurred when Trump improbably was elected in the first place. But as is the case with miracles, the odds are not good.

          Chi ha coperto Assange, e perché ha smesso di proteggerlo?      Comment   Translate Page      
Carpeoro: opaca la storia di Assange. Non sappiamo chi l'ha coperto per anni, perché l'ha fatto, e perché ora ha smesso di proteggerlo.
Quella di Julian Assange, fondatore di Wikileaks, è una vicenda interamente circondata di ambiguità: non credo che l’unica fonte di Assange sia stato quel povero soldatino che poi si è assunte tutte le responsabilità (Bradley Manning, oggi Chelsea Manning dopo il cambio di sesso: soldato che rivelò ad Assange le atrocità commesse dall’esercito Usa in Iraq, ndr).  Non credo che Assange abbia potuto avere copertura per tutti questi anni solo perché era simpatico al leader dell’Ecuador, Rafael Correa. E’ tutto molto opaco, per cui: dare una medaglia o denigrare Assange è impossibile. Ci sono troppe cose non chiare, che non conosciamo. Assange ha avuto coperture importanti, quindi ha svolto collaborazioni importanti. Queste coperture sono venute meno, e non sappiamo né come le ha avute, né da chi, né perché sono venute meno. Per questo motivo, chiunque esprima un giudizio in questa situazione, secondo me, è una persona avventata.
Diffondere notizie riservate e potenzialmente lesive della sicurezza nazionale in America è un reato, e anche in Italia. Non è vero che si possa pubblicare tutto. Poi le notizie, quando se ne entra in possesso in modo illecito, non possono essere pubblicate: se entro in possesso di notizie – anche vere – ma in modo illecito, e le pubblico, vado in galera. Esempio: è un reato se do una notizia che i terroristi possono utilizzare, o se scrivo che è stato creato un centro speciale e segreto presso il ministero della difesa. Se poi intercetti illegalmente Berlusconi e quindi pubblichi quello che hai registrato a casa sua, vai in galera anche per quello che hai pubblicato. Non me la sento di difendere Assange come un eroe dell’informazione. Assange ha acquisito notizie corrompendo un militare, perché di questo si tratta, e già lì siamo su un terreno minato. Per questo merita l’arresto? Ha corrotto un militare: e la corruzione è un reato, anche se il militare ha detto di avergli passato liberamente quelle notizie.
Senza di lui, tante cose non le avremmo sapute? Ma non è che, per sapere delle cose, io devo per forza smontare lo Stato. E se vanno in galera anche persone comuni, non capisco perché non ci possano andare anche i giornalisti, se commettono reati. Per me Assange ha corrotto un militare, il che è molto grave. Massimo Mazzucco trova strano che Julian Assange, nonostante le sue vastissime fonti, non abbia mai detto niente a proposito dell’11 Settembre? E’ anomalo, dice Mazzucco, che da Wikileaks non sia mai uscita un’indiscrezione sull’attentato alle Torri Gemelle? Come dicevo, infatti, tutta la vicenda di Assange – umana, personale, professionale e quindi anche giudiziaria – è completamente nelle nebbie: per questo, ripeto, non me la sento di fare affermazioni nette.
(Gianfranco Carpeoro, dichiarazioni rilasciate a Fabio Frabetti di “Border Nights” nella diretta web-streaming “Carpeoro Racconta”, su YouTube, il 13 aprile 2019. Analista e saggista con alle spalle decenni di attività come avvocato, Carpeoro – massone di alto grado, fuoriuscito dalla massoneria – è un esperto di analisi geopolitica: nel saggio “Dalla massoneria al terrorismo”, uscito nel 2016 per i tipi di Revoluzione, accusa la componente massonica deviata dell’intelligence occidentale di aver “firmato” gli attentati degli anni scorsi, affidati in Europa a manovalanza jihadista targata Isis).

Quella di Julian Assange, fondatore di Wikileaks, è una vicenda interamente circondata di ambiguità: non credo che l’unica fonte di Assange sia stato quel povero soldatino che poi si è assunte tutte le responsabilità (Bradley Manning, oggi Chelsea Manning dopo il cambio di sesso: soldato che rivelò ad Assange le atrocità commesse dall’esercito Usa in Iraq, ndr). Non credo che Assange abbia potuto avere copertura per tutti questi anni solo perché era simpatico al leader dell’Ecuador, Rafael Correa. E’ tutto molto opaco, per cui: dare una medaglia o denigrare Assange è impossibile. Ci sono troppe cose non chiare, che non conosciamo. Assange ha avuto coperture importanti, quindi ha svolto collaborazioni importanti. Queste coperture sono venute meno, e non sappiamo né come le ha avute, né da chi, né perché sono venute meno. Per questo motivo, chiunque esprima un giudizio in questa situazione, secondo me, è una persona avventata.


          Snowden Tras la Detención de Assange      Comment   Translate Page      
En el portal de RT se ha publicado esta nota que contiene la reacción del ciberactivista Edward Snowden hoy asilado político con respecto a la deleznable entrega de Julian Assange por parte del régimen del corrupto Lenín Moreno a Inglaterra:


Snowden ha criticado la posición de Quito tras haber "invitado" a miembros de la Policía secreta británica a "arrastrar" a Assange fuera de las instalaciones de la Embajada de Ecuador en Londres.

El exempleado de la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional (NSA) Edward Snowden se ha pronunciado este jueves respecto al arresto del fundador de WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, luego de la decisión del Gobierno de Ecuador de retirarle el asilo.

Snowden ha criticado la posición de Quito tras haber "invitado" a miembros de la Policía secreta británica a "arrastrar" a Assange fuera de las instalaciones de la Embajada de Ecuador en Londres. Las imágenes "acabarán en los libros de la historia", ha afirmado a través de Twitter.

"Los críticos de Assange puede estar alegres, pero este es un momento oscuro para la libertad de prensa", asevera el exempleado de la CIA.

Anteriormente, el expresidente de Ecuador, Rafael Correa, arremetió en la red social contra el actual presidente de la república, Lenín Moreno, por la decisión. En un explícito tuit, Correa se refirió a Moreno como "el traidor más grande de la historia ecuatoriana y latinoamericana". "Moreno es un corrupto, pero lo que ha hecho es un crimen que la humanidad jamás olvidará", concluyó.

El pasado martes, Moreno acusó a Assange de haber violado "demasiadas veces" el acuerdo de convivencia para garantizar su permanencia en dicha legación diplomática. Este miércoles fue enviado un reporte sobre el cumplimiento de ese protocolo, que se aplicó a Assange el año pasado luego que se restringiera su acceso a Internet.

Por su parte, Josep Jover, abogado experto en protección de datos y derecho de la UE, aseguró que el arresto de Assange forma parte de "una nueva partida de ajedrez a nivel global" en el que tanto el Reino Unido como Ecuador se están acercando a EE.UU. Según el analista, EE.UU. no tiene amigos, sino intereses, y ahora su interés es "castigar públicamente" al activista.

Assange held in London jail ahead of long legal fightWikiLeaks founder Julian Assange languished Friday in a British jail at the outset of a likely lengthy extradition battle following the dramatic end to his seven-year stay in Ecuador's London embassy. Within hours of police hauling him out of the embassy on Thursday, the 47-year-old Australian appeared in court for breaching his British bail conditions in 2012 and to face a subsequent US extradition request. A legal source familiar with the case told AFP that Assange was being held at Belmarsh prison in southeast London.

One unanswered question in this debacle is how the precariousness of the school’s finances managed to escape the attention of CEA, the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation, which looks not only into a given institution’s academics, but also into its finances. A June, 2018 review of the school written by a former Program Coordinator reads, under “Cons:”  “This is the time to announce your bankruptcy.”  Under “Pros,” instead of positive aspects, the writer lists the reasons for the school’s abysmal straits.  On June 12, 2018, a Student Agent wrote, “The receptionist was talking to her friend that the owners were in court because the building owners want to evict us.” Yet in December 2018, CEA gave the school a clean bill of health for the next ten years.

Sending the WikiLeaks founder to face charges in the US would be a disaster for press freedom

It’s not difficult to despise Julian Assange. For seven years, he has attempted to evade rape and sexual assault charges in Sweden by seeking asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He has dismissed the charges as a “radical feminist conspiracy” and tried to smear the complainants as acting on behalf of the CIA. His excuse for refusing to face trial in Sweden – that he would then face extradition to the US – has always been hogwash. He is no safer from extradition in Britain than he would have been in Sweden, as he may soon discover.

There are questions to be asked about WikiLeaks, too. The organisation has been invaluable in allowing whistleblowers to safely publish documents that the authorities would rather have kept hushed up, from the truth about the commodity trader Trafigura’s devastating dumping of chemical waste in Ivory Coast to videos of US helicopter attacks on Iraqi civilians. It is, or certainly was in its early days, an important tool in cutting down to size those in power who would abuse their power.

          U.K. pressured not to overlook Swedish claims on Assange      Comment   Translate Page      
LONDON – British lawmakers are heaping pressure on the government to make sure that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange faces Swedish justice if prosecutors there reopen a rape investigation against him.

There is mounting concern that Assange should not be allowed to sidestep the Swedish investigation stemming from his 2010 visit to Sweden. The complaints from two women eventually led him to seek refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London rather than return to Sweden for questioning.

Some are calling for the British government to extradite Assange to Sweden, if it makes an official request, rather than to the U.S., which seeks him on conspiracy charges.

More than 70 British lawmakers signed a letter late Friday urging Home Secretary Sajid Javid to "do everything you can to champion action that will ensure Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden in the event Sweden makes an extradition request."

Prominent Conservative Party lawmaker Alistair Burt, a former Foreign Office minister, said Saturday that it's "quite disturbing" to see the sexual allegations minimized.

He said the testimony of the two women makes it "essential" that Assange face justice, to either be cleared in a Swedish court or be convicted.

Assange, 47, has denied the sexual misconduct allegations, which he claims are politically motivated. He claims the sex was consensual.

Sweden suspended its investigation into possible sexual misconduct against Assange two years ago because he was beyond their reach while he was living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London with political asylum status. Prosecutors said the investigation could be revived if his situation changed.

Assange was arrested Thursday after Ecuador withdrew his asylum. He is now in Belmarsh Prison in southeast London, waiting to be sentenced for jumping bail in Britain and facing an extradition request from the United States on charges of conspiring to break into a Pentagon computer.

WikiLeaks says Assange will fight the U.S. extradition request and has been meeting with his legal team to plan his defense.

He has not had a chance to enter a plea in response to the U.S. charge, but he says all of his WikiLeaks actions are those of a legitimate journalist.

If Britain receives competing extradition requests, lawyers say the Home Secretary would have some leeway in deciding which takes priority. Considerations usually include which request came first and which alleged crime is more serious.

Most of the lawmakers who signed the letter are from the opposition Labour Party, whose leader, Jeremy Corbyn, wants Britain to refuse to send Assange to the U.S. After Assange's arrest, Corbyn praised him for exposing U.S. atrocities committed in Iraq and Afghanistan when WikiLeaks released tens of thousands of confidential U.S. documents in 2010.

British politicians are free to lobby the government for a certain course of action, but it's up to the courts to decide whether the U.S. request for Assange's extradition – and a possible future request from Sweden – should be honored.

The Home Secretary, a senior Cabinet official, can block extradition under certain circumstances, including cases where a person might face capital punishment or torture in the country seeking their extradition.

Swedish prosecutors opened an investigation into Assange after two women accused him of sexual offenses during a 2010 visit to Sweden. Some of the sexual misconduct accusations are no longer viable because their time ran out. But Swedish prosecutors have said a rape case could be reactivated since the statute of limitations for that runs until August 2020.

After Assange's arrest this week, Swedish prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson was tapped to look into a request from a lawyer for one of the accusers, to find out whether the case can be pursued.

Elisabeth Massi Fritz, the lawyer for the woman who reported being raped by Assange, told The Associated Press that she would "do everything" to have the Swedish case reopened so Assange can be extradited to Sweden and prosecuted.

The extradition process is not swift, and Assange could appeal several times if decisions go against him. It's expected it would take a year or longer for him to be sent to the United States or possibly to Sweden even if he ultimately loses in court.

Durch ein Exempel an Julian Assange wollen die Weltmächte Protest gegen ihre Machenschaften im Keim ersticken.

Schon Tage vor der Verhaftung von Julian Assange hatte der frühere britische Botschafter und Menschenrechtsaktivist Craig Murray mit anderen Kämpfern für die Pressefreiheit vor der ecuadorianischen Botschaft in London ausgeharrt, um ein Zeichen seiner Solidarität mit dem WikiLeaks-Herausgeber zu setzen. Seinen Antrag, Assange zu besuchen, hatte die Botschaft ignoriert. Als der brutale Zugriff dann erfolgte, setzte sich Craig Murray sofort in den Zug nach London. Im Gerichtssaal wohnte er dann einem unwürdigen Spektakel bei: einer Aburteilung im Schnellverfahren.

Ecuador denuncia ciberataques tras el retiro del asilo a Assange



Funcionarios públicos de ecuador denunciaron que sus correos fueron intervenidos y que incluso este sábado aparecía la foto de Assenger en la página web de la Maná



"Han logrado intervenir un correo institucional y una página de un municipio", señaló la ministra del Interior, María Paula Romo, en su cuenta en Twitter sin señalar posibles responsables.



Agregó que "a pesar de haber sufrido cyber ataques en los últimos días, ninguna página del gobierno central, ni de sectores claves del mundo privado, se encuentra intervenida o sacada del aire".



Este sábado, durante algunas horas, en la página web del municipio de La Maná, una localidad de la andina provincia de Cotopaxi (centro), en lugar de la información habitual había una fotografía de Assange.



A pesar de haber sufrido cyber ataques en los últimos días, ninguna página del gobierno central, ni de sectores claves del mundo privado, se encuentra intervenida o sacada del aire. Han logrado intervenir un correo institucional y una página de un municipio. pic.twitter.com/5JgXp7ANzd

En la imagen aparecía el australiano tras ser detenido el jueves en la embajada de Ecuador en Londres, al perder el asilo diplomático que le permitió permanecer en la legación desde 2012.



Romo denunció ese mismo día que una persona próxima a Assange estaba implicada -junto con el excanciller Ricardo Patiño- en un plan de desestabilización contra el presidente Lenín Moreno.



A raíz de la denuncia, las autoridades detuvieron al sueco Ola Bini, quien tiene una orden de prisión preventiva por el presunto delito de ataque a sistemas informáticos.





La ministra también ha señalado a dos hackers rusos que viven en Ecuador y que están vinculados con "ataques sistemáticos" al gobierno ecuatoriano, sin que las autoridades hayan confirmado si son aliados de WikiLeaks.

A number of us knew Nancy Pelosi was not the Speaker of the House the country needed -- or deserved.  Some didn't want to get honest about that.  Can they get honest now?  Whoopi, Cher, all of you who don't really follow reality, you still standing by your support for Nancy?


Have no fear insurance, pharma and medical conglomerates, will eviscerate and destroy , you own her and most of ⁦⁩.



John Stauber is highlighting this SLUDGE article that notes:

A top hospital lobbyist told a room of health care executives this week not to worry about “Medicare for All” and suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) won’t let the idea come up for a vote during the current Congress.
Tom Nickels, the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) executive vice president for government relations, spoke at the organization’s annual conference on Monday, a day before Pelosi addressed the same Washington, D.C. ballroom.
Although Nickels said that President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate would never support the idea of a government-run universal health care system, he predicted Pelosi also will work to block Medicare for All legislation, in hopes of protecting moderate Democrats in swing districts.
Again, we deserved better than Nancy.  She's not going to fight for what America needs.  She's 'left' only to those who don't know better or who are centrists.


Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"

 
Friday, April 12, 2019.  Lie about Iraq and get promoted or hired (Kevin Drum got hired by MOTHER JONES), tell the truth and get arrested like Julian Assange.


Yesterday, the founder and publisher of WIKILEAKS, Julian Assange, was arrested in London.  Why?

That's a multi-answer.  Some have cried "treason!"  Julian Assange is an Australian citizen, as such he cannot commit treason against the United States.  He is a publisher and the news he publishes makes the powerful uncomfortable.


For the US government, the first extreme bit of discomfort came on Monday April 5, 2010, when WIKILEAKS released  military video of a July 12, 2007 assault in Iraq. 12 people were killed in the assault including two REUTERS journalists Namie Noor-Eldeen and Saeed Chmagh.  Not only was the US government responsible for that attack, they were responsible for the lies and the coverup that followed.  When WIKILEAKS published the video, the truth was known.


Legal scholar Jonathan Turley (USA TODAY) explains:

He is our property.” Those celebratory words of Sen. Joe Manchin (D, W.V.) came on CNN soon after the news of the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. It was a sentiment shared by virtually everyone in Washington from Congress to the intelligence services. Assange committed the unpardonable sins of embarrassing the establishment — from members of Congress to intelligence officials to the media. And he will now be punished for our sins. Despite having significant constitutional arguments to be made, it is likely that he will be stripped of those defenses and even barred from raising the overall context of his actions in federal court. What could be the most important free speech and free press case in our history could well be reduced to the scope and substance of an unauthorized computer access case.

Moreover, he was doing something that is usually heralded in the media. He disclosed a massive and arguably unconstitutional surveillance program by the United States impacting virtually every citizen. He later published emails that showed that the Democratic National Committee and the campaign of Hillary Clinton lied in various statements to the public, including the rigging of the primary for her nomination. No one has argued that any of these emails were false. They were embarrassing. Of course, there is not crime of embarrassing the establishment but that is merely a technicality.


WSWS observes:

For its part, the establishment media, which functions as an arm of the state, has jumped in to support the attack on Assange.
On Thursday evening, the editorial boards of the New York Times and the Washington Post issued statements supporting Assange’s extradition. “The government charged Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, not with publishing classified government information, but with stealing it,” declared the New York Times, adding, “The administration has begun well by charging Mr. Assange with an indisputable crime.”
The Washington Post was even more open in its support of the Trump administration’s campaign against Assange, declaring “Mr. Assange’s case could conclude as a victory for the rule of law, not the defeat for civil liberties of which his defenders mistakenly warn.”
“Mr. Assange is not a free-press hero,” declares the Post. “Unlike real journalists, WikiLeaks dumped material into the public domain.” By the Post’s definition, the only “real journalists” are those that self-censor at the behest of the Pentagon.

These newspapers, which once published the Pentagon Papers, are nothing but apologists for US imperialism. One can only imagine the howls of outrage that would issue from the media if it was the Russian government that had carried out the forcible seizure and arrest of a journalist and critic of its foreign policy!



US House Rep Tulsi Gabbard, who is seeking the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, Tweeted the following:


Assange Arrest: The message is clear. To journalists and all Americans, if you try to take away our power, you will pay a high price.
 
 
The purpose of arresting is to send a message to the people, especially journalists, to be quiet and don’t get out of line. If we, the people, allow the government to control us through fear, we are no longer free, we are no longer America.
 
 
The arrest of is meant to send a message to all Americans and journalists: be quiet, behave, toe the line. Or you will pay the price.

          Julian Assange: três mentiras e uma detenção.      Comment   Translate Page      
Em artigo publicado no Blog de Montaner, Armando Añel escreve sobre a verdadeira personalidade desse hacker:


La detención del hacker australiano Julian Assange, este jueves en Londres, ha puesto a correr la maquinaria de desinformación rusa y, en general, antiamericana. A continuación tres aproximaciones a la verdadera naturaleza del personaje detenido:

ASSANGE NO ES PERIODISTA

La directora de la cadena televisiva RT y de la agencia de noticias Sputnik, ambas al servicio de la dictadura de Putin, ha calificado al fundador de WikiLeaks de “principal periodista de la época”, pero en realidad se trata de un intento de camuflar su agenda pro autoritaria y antiamericana. Ni Assange es periodista profesional ni estudió periodismo en ninguna de sus formas ni hace periodismo tampoco, más bien este hacker australiano se dedica a obtener información sensible o clasificada de las democracias occidentales para dársela a Moscú, poner en peligro el trabajo de inteligencia anticomunista o simplemente dañar la imagen de Estados Unidos y otros gobiernos de Occidente. Incluso Prensa Latina (PL), agencia al servicio del régimen castrista, ha intentado calzar las “filtraciones” de Wikileaks ofreciendo declaraciones de la cancillería rusa y atacando a los medios de prensa occidentales.

ASSANGE NO ES UN VERDADERO REFUGIADO POLÍTICO

La historia del asilo político a Assange está llena de medias verdades y mentiras flagrantes. El hacker australiano huyó de Suecia, país donde previamente se le había negado la residencia, para no tener que enfrentar la justicia en un caso aún no resuelto contra dos mujeres con las que tuvo relaciones íntimas. Ya en Inglaterra, la policía sueca solicitó la intervención de la Interpol y ésta emitió una alerta roja para su captura y extradición acusado de delitos de violación, abusos y coacción. Fue detenido por la policía de Londres tras presentarse en una comisaría y luego puesto en libertad bajo fianza. Más tarde, un juez británico autorizó la extradición de Assange a Suecia rechazando los argumentos de su defensa que afirmaban que en ese país no tendría un juicio justo debido a que “los medios y la opinión pública están en su contra”. Finalmente, en 2012, el régimen procastrista de Rafael Correa le dio asilo en la embajada ecuatoriana en Londres, desde donde el hacker continuó trabajando contra las democracias occidentales para contento de Ecuador, Rusia y, por supuesto, Cuba.

ASSANGE NO ES UN HÉROE DE LA LIBERTAD

“¿No es curioso que WikiLeaks privilegiara de tal modo revelar los documentos confidenciales de los países libres, donde existe, además de la libertad de prensa, una legalidad digna de ese nombre, en vez de hacerlo con las dictaduras y gobiernos despóticos que proliferan todavía por el mundo?”, se ha preguntado el escritor Mario Vargas Llosa. Hay que entender que la guerra mundial de la manipulación emprendida por el binomio Putin-Assange ha estado dirigida a estimular el descontento de los perdedores en las democracias desarrolladas, socavando los cimientos de dichas democracias y extendiendo un populismo liberticida que es por naturaleza ajeno a los fundamentos republicanos. Cuando traficas con información, o desinformación, proporcionada, facilitada o sugerida por servicios secretos de países enemigos de la libertad, represivos, pro rusos, etc., uno de cuyos objetivos fundamentales precisamente es desinformar, imposible que no te conviertas en una herramienta de la mentira. Cuando no en un espíritu de la mentira. No se conoce ni se conocerá jamás a un supuesto héroe de la libertad de expresión cuyos principales abastecedores y socios sean depredadores de la libertad de expresión (Correa, Putin, Castro, etc.). Nadie nunca ha visto a un pez nadando fuera del agua.

Ecuador shut off his access to the Internet after WikiLeaks published emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign that had been pilfered by Russian hackers. Embassy officials grew weary of what they called his "discourteous and aggressive behavior." They even griped that he needed to do a better job cleaning up after his cat.

          Julian Assange's 'Embassy Cat' Is Safe, WikiLeaks Confirms      Comment   Translate Page      

Embassy Cat – the feline who kept Julian Assange company at the Ecuadorian consulate – is safe, WikiLeaks has confirmed.

The cat had lived with Assange during his seven-year stay at the embassy in Knightsbridge since May 2016.

She was gifted to him as a pet by his children.

In a tweet accompanied by a video of the animal sat in front of footage of Assange’s arrest, WikiLeaks said: “We can confirm that Assange’s cat is safe.

“Assange asked his lawyers to rescue him from embassy threats in mid-October. They will be reunited in freedom.”

Assange’s pet had become popular on social media in recent years, appearing dressed in a tie and collar in the window of the embassy in November 2016.

Assange received the cat when she was just 10 weeks old – and when she made a cameo appearance during a live broadcast on the night of the EU referendum, he referred to her simply as “Embassy Cat”.

She even has an unverified Twitter account with more than 30,000 followers.

Using the hashtags #FreeAssange and #NoExtradition, the WikiLeaks tweet also called for Assange not to be extradited to the US.

The 47-year-old faces up to 12 months in a British prison after he was found guilty of breaching his bail conditions, while the US charge could attract a maximum jail sentence of five years, according to the US Department of Justice.

But WikiLeaks editor Kristinn Hrafnsson said he fears more charges will be added, meaning Assange could face decades in a US prison.

          Ecuador: Un suedez descris drept un apropiat al lui Assange, inculpat pentru atac informatic împotriva Ecuadorului      Comment   Translate Page      
Un suedez arestat joi şi descris de autorităţile din Ecuador drept un apropiat al lui Julian Assange, fondatorul WikiLeaks, a fost inculpat pentru atac împotriva unor sisteme informatice, a comunicat parchetul de la Quito, potrivit AFP. Suedezul Ola Bini a fost reţinut în timp ce încerca să plece în Japonia, în aceeaşi zi în care poliţia londoneză l-a arestat pe Assange, după ce Ecuadorul i-a retras acestuia azilul diplomatic. Parchetul general de la Quito a anunţat sâmbătă inculparea 'unui cetăţean suedez de 36 de ani pentru participare prezumtivă la delictul de atac împotriva integrităţii unor sisteme informatice'. Un judecător a dispus 'plasarea în detenţie preventivă a acuzatului şi îngheţarea conturilor sale bancare'. Ministrul de interne ecuadorian, Maria Paula Romo, a declarat joi că o persoană apropiată de Assange, căreia nu i-a dezvăluit identitatea, a fost implicată într-un plan de 'destabilizare' a preşedintelui Lenin Moreno. Această persoană efectuase călătorii în străinătate cu fostul ministru de externe ecuadorian Ricardo Patino. Maria Paula Romo a menţionat de asemenea 'doi hackeri ruşi care trăiesc tot în Ecuador' şi având legătură cu 'atacuri sistematice' contra guvernului de la Quito. Autorităţile ecuadoriene nu au precizat însă dacă cei doi ruşi erau apropiaţi de WikiLeaks. Vineri, ministrul de interne l-a descris pe Ola Bini drept 'o persoană apropiată de WikiLeaks', care s-a deplasat în ultimii ani de cel puţin 12 ori la ambasada Ecuadorului de la Londra. Australianul Julian Assange, 47 de ani, a fost arestat joi în sediul ambasadei ecuadoriene la Londra, unde se refugiase din 2012 pentru a evita extrădarea în Suedia, unde era acuzat de viol, un dosar clasat între timp. Assange beneficia de azil diplomatic, acordat de preşedintele ecuadorian de la acea vreme, Rafael Correa (2007-2017). Succesorul acestuia, Lenin Moreno, i-a retras lui Assange azilul, dar şi cetăţenia acordată în 2017.AGERPRES/(AS - autor: Irina Cristea, editor online: Ady Ivaşcu)
           Comment on Don’t Let WikiLeaks Founder Get Away With Alleged Rape by Jelica Roland       Comment   Translate Page      
Gee, Swedish prosecutor kept this case open 'till 2017 because UK Government asked for it while looking for a way to punish him for the leaked "Collateral Murder" video. Swedish prosecutor wanted to close it long before, and even woman who complained about his behaviour didn't want to press a rape charge... she even bragged about her catch (via text messages to her friends). But somebody thought it was a golden opportunity to get Assange and shift him to the US. BTW, Assange left from Sweden to UK in an agreement with the Swedish authorities, under condition to be available to further questioning - if needed. About 2 yrs latter, when the case really heated up and Swedish prosecutor refused to question him in the UK or via video-link; UK wanted to extradict him to Sweden, Assange got protection and accommodation from Ecuador. Did you know that the notorious CM video was removed from YouTube? Nothing fishy here, right?
          Clean up your cat litter      Comment   Translate Page      



the real story why Ecuador threw out Assnage: He didn't clean up the cat litter.

so what happened to the cat?

NPR report on Assange's cat.


Moreno explained that Assange treated his hosts disrespectfully; late last year the embassy implemented a series of rules for Assange, including a requirement to be responsible for the "well-being, food, hygiene and proper care of your pet." If Assange didn't, the embassy threatened to put the cat in a shelter. In other words, it is likely that Assange didn't effectively clean up after his cat's own wiki-leaks.
apparently he gave it to his family after the embassy threatened to take it away and put it in a pound.



If I find all of this absurd, it is because boys of all ages are notorious for being messy, so hiring a part time maid to clean up after him wouldn't cost a fortune, so why is the embassy making such a big thing about it? Or maybe buy a self cleaning litter box?

Because of course this is not about being messy: they were pressuring him to leave and a lot of his messiness was about protesting this.

On the other hand, I guess he hasn't read Jordan Peterson:

I find it is ironic that he spent years isolated in an embassy for embarassing Hillary, but Chelsey Manning not only got a pardon but a free sex change operation for releasing information that endangered soldiers in Iraq.

(henrymakow.com)


This past week, Britain got the perfect media distraction from its massive betrayal of Brexit voters - the 'arrest' of Julian Assange in the London Ecuador Embassy, a month after Ecuador received $4.2 billion in funding from the USA-dominated IMF.  Ecuador is also lined up for a new USA trade 'deal'.

We all tend to be too eager for a 'hero' against the establishment, so we don't recognize that sometimes, a fake 'hero' is supplied by the CIA's own favoured media outlets.

pope-julian.jpg
(Thought only Popes do this sign) 

And indeed, there is evidence that anti-9-11-truth Assange, is a Mossad - CIA fraud, with a long history tied to the world's wealthiest family, the Israel-devoted Rothschilds. We need to see what every major government knows, there is nothing real about either Julian Assange or Edward Snowden.

The 'Assange living in the Ecuador embassy for 7 years' story, is apparently a fairy tale, an easy hoax to pull off, with Assange only there for photos and meetings. The IMF - USA cash & trade deal for Ecuador, not only rewards the staging the 'arrest' of Assange, but also the cover-up of the fact he was never really living there.

Assange was easily moved in & out to Rothschild friends' homes, using wig, fake glasses & moustache, workman's uniforms etc; London police on 24 / 7 watch, helping under national security orders; Ecuador embassy staff perhaps bribed, and facing career destruction or worse, plus no media support, if they say anything.

To fill out the details, one can start by noting the very friendly, mutual-praise relationship between Julian Assange and Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, documented on Veterans Today.


Haaretz even reports Turkish leading figures close to Erdogan talking about the evidence of Wikileaks as an Israeli-supported operation, the Turks saying: "Israel is very pleased. Israel has been making statements for days, even before the release of these [Wikileaks] documents. Documents were released and they immediately said, Israel will not suffer from this. How did they know that?"

Veterans Today reports they learned of Israeli media quoting Bibi Netanyahu saying, "Assange is talking to us and nothing will be released that will hurt us", VT adding: "Wikileaks is a unit of Israeli intelligence ... as early as 2011, Julian Assange admitted that all Wikileaks material was submitted to Israel before publishing, with some of that editing and reviewing done at New York Times offices by staff from the Israeli consulate in New York. We have on the spot confirmation of this. "

THE BAER BANK EPISODE 

One of Julian Assange's early 'Wikileaks' campaigns, was to greatly damage the 1800s-vintage Swiss Bank Julius Baer (Julius Bär), the great rival to the Rothschild Bank in Switzerland.

WIDMER.jpg
At age 52, wealthy Julius Baer CEO Alex Widmer was found 'mysteriously dead', allegedly 'suicide'. Assange provided 'leaks' about Julius Baer and its clients, Assange claiming to be concerned about 'tax evasion', striking fear into the bank's customers, and eventually sinking the bank's share value 60%.

Julius Baer went to court in the USA where Wikileaks was hosted, to stop Wikileaks revealing client data ... the Fox Rothschild law firm represented Wikileaks, won, and got Wikileaks back dishing dirt on the Rothschild bank rival, permanently damaging it.

Another Julian Assange lawyer has been Mark Stephens of Finers Stephens Innocent, legal advisors to Rothschild Waddesdon Trust.

A person who has posted bail for Assange, is UK socialite Jemima Khan née Goldsmith (Goldschmidt), a sister in law of the Rothschilds, her brother Ben wed Kate Rothschild, her father James Goldsmith a Rothschild cousin.
The Rothschild-backed and supervised 'The Economist' touted Julian as a great 'hero' for his Swiss bank leaking that helped the Rothschild bank trounce its competitor.

The UK Guardian news site, major early promoter of Assange, has had 'Scott Trust' board supervision from Paul Myners of Rothschild Ltd & Sons, and Anthony Salz of Investment Bank Rothschild.

Assange has stayed at the country mansion of Vaughan Smith, owner of media organisation Frontline Trust, where Assange has been a speaker, 'Frontline' funded by George Soros ... Soros is a partner of Rothschild cousin Goldsmith, and Richard Katz of Rothschild & Sons has been director of the Soros Open Society Institute, with other Rothschild bank employees also on Soros boards.

arton32798.jpg
The pumper of Edward Snowden, Glen Greenwald has been a Rothschild family employee too, brought in after they realised it was too ridiculous to sell Snowden via the Washington Post reporter Snowden first 'leaked' to, Bart Gellman, who is the biographer & friend of USA Vice President & warmonger Dick Cheney ... Now, Greenwald is funded by CIA-Ukraine meddling billionaire Pierre Omidyar.

Notice that despite 'USA federal criminal indictment' etc, there is no seizure of Wikileaks funds etc. or deplatforming of its touts - Wikileaks successfully shilling for donations even now ... whilst many other people, have been de-platformed, banned, blocked from fundraising etc, for mere slightly dissident opinion, without even an accusation of crime.

At age 82, US longtime CIA adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski admitted on 29 November 2010 on USA television, the PBS News Hour, that Wikileaks were clearly intel-agency seeded and selected.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAca9RdGl98

Aside from Wikileaks material on countries targeted by the US-Nato or Israel - such as the 'Arab Spring' incitement material - 'Wikileaks' regarding the USA were 'nothing dramatically new' (US foreign torture etc); 'control file' material (Hillary-bashing, to hold over her head in case she won); and overall designed to 'rat trap' - lure, identify & destroy - real dissidents lured into contacting Wikileaks.

RICH1.jpeg
At least two people who contacted Assange have turned up dead - Seth Rich & Peter W Smith. Assange pretends to be 'concerned' about the former; he denies receiving the latter's files. Others are jailed.

Tho they claim to fear extradition, Assange and Snowden, like good CIA assets, refuse to use the devastating files on USA Virginia federal judge bribery which have stopped other extraditions, even though those judges are the exact ones who would allegedly put Assange & Snowden on trial. It is all been a fraud with these 'fake heroes', and the Satanists are having a good laugh over it.

WHY THE ARREST NOW?

Why was Assange 'arrested' now? The 'seven years living in a tiny room in the London Ecuador Embassy' story, was obviously getting long in the tooth, harder to believe the longer it continued. Assange and Snowden are creations of the Obama CIA, and shortly after Trump took office, moves were made toward winding down the Assange hoax, with Sweden even dropping their dodgy 'rape charges' against Assange in early 2017. The timing at the moment was chosen to distract from the British Brexit debacle, now tearing apart British society with the betrayal of 17 million UK Brexit voters.

There is also the fact that the ongoing travails of a supposed 'dissident hero', with a popular 'personality', distracts from many things, such as Israel's latest bombing attack on Syria, or on Gaza. Every week for a while there can be some new 'Assange story' twist and turn.

We may have news-headline 'Assange updates' ahead for months or even years, perhaps ending finally in some fake 'people's victory' for Assange, or perhaps even a fake 'trial' and a fake 'imprisonment', as people suspect take place for some of these unlikely purported 'lone wolf attackers' who are presented to us in various suspicious 'killing events'.

THE ASSANGE-ROTHSCHILD CONNECTION

What is the basis of the deep bond between Julian Assange and the Rothschilds? The Rothschilds with their estimated 400 billion (at least) fortune, and passion for Israel, naturally have a great interest in media control, taking a direct role on boards supervising leading global media such as the UK Guardian and The Economist.

But in order to really control media, one needs to control the 'opposition' media as well, and to channel the energies of potential dissidents. During the Obama era, it was decided to give the world two fake 'dissident heroes', pumped by Rothschild and CIA partner media, who would deceive the entire world. These two fake dissidents, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, perhaps exceeded expectations in how they duped the public, despite their obvious Rothschild and CIA-establishment connections, and despite obvious trouble signs such as indulging Israel and aggressively opposing 9-11 truth.

Assange and Snowden provided many side benefits for the global NWO cabal, such as de-legitimising real dissidents, with many people saying things like, 'Well, if it was true, wouldn't Assange and Snowden, and their 'brave' media, be telling us about it?' The tragic unknowable is how many dissidents were crushed and silenced, even killed, after being lured into the 'rat trap' of Snowden & Assange and their media.

Los Ángeles, Estados Unidos.

Alcaldes de “ciudades santuarios” criticaron al presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, por amenazar con la posibilidad de enviar a indocumentados detenidos en la frontera sur a estas urbes que rechazan colaborar en materia migratoria, área de competencia federal.

La Casa Blanca ya había despertado criticas después que funcionarios divulgaran que en febrero pasado se consideró la idea y la ola de rechazos aumentó después de que Trump reconociera el viernes que estudia “en serio” esa posibilidad porque los demócratas no quieren cambiar las “peligrosas” leyes migratorias del país.

Los ataques estarían dirigidos en especial a California, estado que ha presentado batalla contra las políticas de la administración Trump en materia migratoria y donde las reacciones no se hicieron esperar este viernes.

El alcalde de Los Ángeles, Erick Garcetti, se sumó a las críticas y le aclaró al mandatario que los inmigrantes “son personas, no peones”.

El alcalde de San José, Sam Liccardo, optó por dar la bienvenida a cualquier familia que esté dispuesta a soportar dificultades extraordinarias y correr “grandes riesgos por ser parte de nuestro gran país”.

El alcalde de Nueva York, Bill de Blasio, se sumó a las críticas y declaró en un comunicado que Trump ha demostrado de nuevo que la “única constante” en su política migratoria es la “crueldad”.

Rahm Emanuel, alcalde de Chicago, aseguró que lo que Trump no comprende es que Estados Unidos en sí mismo es un “país santuario”.

Se va y él lo sabe. Ni siquiera ha llegado a los dos años y su imagen positiva sigue en caída libre. Según las dos últimas encuestas realizadas por el Centro Estratégico Latinoamericano de Geopolítica (Celag), Lenín Moreno pasó de tener un saldo neto positivo de 2.8 puntos en noviembre de 2018 a uno negativo de 19 en marzo de este año. A estas alturas, pocos creen que sea él quien esté gobernando. Con datos del mismo sondeo, la mayoría de los ecuatorianos piensa que son los grupos económicos, el gobierno de Estados Unidos y Jaime Nebot los que realmente dirigen al país, muy por delante de la rectoría del propio presidente.

Luego de la detención del fundador de Wikileaks, Julian Assange, y tras casi 7 años asilado en la embajada de Ecuador en Londres, la compañía habría liberado algunos documentos clasificados.

Uno de los archivos desclasificados tendría que ver con el fundador de Apple, Steve Jobs, quien presuntamente fue diagnosticado VIH el 1 septiembre de 2004.



Aunque se desconoce si Jobs conocía su condición médica respecto al VIH, el empresario sí habría muerto de cáncer pancreático, ya que, de los dos consentimientos médicos liberados por Wikileaks, uno de ellos dice que el exCEO de Apple firma de enterado para realizarse una cirugía de cáncer "pancreático renal" en un centro médico de California.

La filtración de los documentos no especifíca si la muerte de Steve Jobs se debió a complicaciones de cáncer y el VIH que padecía.




Los documentos filtrados están publicados en el sitio el archivo de Wikileaks.

Tatăl lui Julian Assange, fondatorul WikiLeaks, a cerut duminică guvernului australian să-l repatrieze pe fiul său, declarându-se şocat de starea vizibilă de slăbiciunea fizică afişată de acesta în momentul arestării sale, joi, la Londra, transmite AFP. John Shipton, tatăl biologic al lui Julian Assange, a fost secretar al WikiLeaks Party, o formaţiune politică înfiinţată de fiul său cu ocazia alegerilor pentru Senat din 2013 şi care a înregistrat un scor de sub 1%. Presa a relatat că John Shipton şi-a vizitat fiul de fiecare Crăciun în sediul ambasadei Ecuadorului la Londra, unde Assange a locuit din 2012 până la arestarea sa, joi. 'DFAT (Ministerul de Externe) şi prim-ministrul trebuie să facă ceva', a declarat John Shipton pentru publicaţia Sunday Herald Sun din Melbourne. 'Se poate rezolva simplu pentru satisfacţia tuturor. Au existat discuţii între un senator şi un înalt responsabil al DFAT pentru extrădarea lui Julian în Australia', a adăugat el. Shipton s-a declarat şocat de înfăţişarea fiului său în ziua arestării, în baza unei cereri de extrădare formulate de SUA, care îl acuză pe fondatorul WikiLeaks de 'piraterie informatică', şi a unui mandat emis în iunie 2012 de justiţia britanică pentru neprezentare în faţa tribunalului. 'Am văzut cum poliţiştii au trebuit să-l poarte până în josul scărilor. Nu părea să se simtă bine. Am 74 de ani şi par în formă mai bună decât el, care are 47. Este foarte şocant', a mai spus tatăl lui Assange. 'Timp de luni şi luni de zile, a trăit ca un deţinut într-o închisoare de înaltă securitate, nu putea nici să meargă la toaletă. Existau camere de supraveghere care îi urmăreau cele mai mici gesturi', a mai afirmat el. Premierul australian Scott Morrison a declarat vineri că Assange nu va primi 'niciun fel de tratament special' din partea autorităţilor de la Canberra. Australianul Julian Assange, în vârstă de 47 de ani, a fost arestat joi în sediul ambasadei ecuadoriene la Londra, unde se refugiase din 2012 pentru a evita extrădarea în Suedia, unde era acuzat de viol, un dosar clasat între timp.AGERPRES/(AS - autor: Irina Cristea, editor online: Ady Ivaşcu)

Climbing from the ancient Peruvian pilgrimage site of Chavín, we pass fields of quinoa flowering purple in a last burst of energy before they are harvested. There are bunches of maize hanging from the farmhouse rafters in shades of gold and red, and the small village plaza has plants that would not be out of place in an English country garden: hibiscus, hollyhocks and astrantia.

And then we are above the village and the tree line and come to the Royal Road of the Incas, the Capac Ñan, which stretches for an astonishing 1,500 miles from Ecuador to Bolivia – down the length of the Andes, and their empire.

          LAS IDEAS IDEOLOGICAS DE ASSANGE Y LA AVANZADA DE LOS LIBRES Y VALIENTES      Comment   Translate Page      



El escandalo producido por la detención de Julián Assange en la Embajada de Ecuador en Londres,luego de la expulsión indicada por Renegado Moreno ante una orden directa emitida por el Consul Pretoriano Mike Pence de inspección en el Cono Sur ,nos debe llamar la atención por el avance en la peligrosidad del Imperio que ,sin medida alguna ,acusa de traición a un ciudadano australiano al que le ha sido concedida a su vez la ecuatoriana.
La traición de Assange no existe puesto que no ha jurado lealtad a la bandera  de los libres y valientes   y solo expuso a la opinión pública la actividad esclavizadora y cobarde del gobierno Imperial, sea bajo el impulso de Trump,Obama o quien coño ocupe las oficinas del Salón Oval.
Se puede decir que en esta hora, el imperio no guarda ninguna forma sin respetar tonteras como las de la inmunidad de las embajadas. Sin llegar al extremo de la fusiladora que en el 56 asaltó la Embajada de Haiti en Buenos Aires a cargo del gran poeta Jean Francois Bierre ,tratado de negro de mierda por el culto General Quaranta que no se detuvo en nimiedades en la busqueda de insurrectos.Si bien los ingleses no tomaron la Embajada como objetivo terrorista la orden de Pence y del FMI que arrincona a Ecuador era terminante.
Entregar a Asssange culpàble de lesa difusión de verdades.
El periodista argentino,Santiago O Donnell, hombre liberal de centro derecha, autor de los Argenlike,basados en los EscritosBlasfemos de Julian Assange bien podría poner sus barbas en remojo dada la suerte corrida por Assange  y mediante su libro expuso  a mas de un chanchito comiendo fuera de la porqueriza.
En otra linea de ataque ,la baja de la Unasar por parte de Argentina, usando como argumento que esa organización internacional era “ ideológica”  remite a los momentos mas oscuros, más antipoliticos y retrógrados  de la Argentina,en donde el solo pensar,tener ideas ,era sospechoso y condenable.
Haciendo autoreferencia me gusta citar a un comisario general muy bestia y ultrareaccionario a cargo de la seguridad de un Banco con el que tuve un choque por motivos laborales,en un momento el Pata Negra,ofuscado ,me dice :el tema con Ud es que tiene ideas ideológicas.

          UK pressured not to overlook Swedish claims to Assange      Comment   Translate Page      

LONDON – British lawmakers are heaping pressure on the government to make sure that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange faces Swedish justice if prosecutors there reopen a rape investigation against him.

There is mounting concern that Assange should not be allowed to sidestep the Swedish investigation stemming from his 2010 visit to Sweden. The complaints from two women eventually led him to seek refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London rather than return to Sweden for questioning.

Some are calling for the British government to extradite Assange to Sweden, if it makes an official request, rather than to the U.S., which seeks him on conspiracy charges.

More than 70 British lawmakers signed a letter late Friday urging Home Secretary Sajid Javid to “do everything you can to champion action that will ensure Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden in the event Sweden makes an extradition request.”

Prominent Conservative Party lawmaker Alistair Burt, a former Foreign Office minister, said Saturday that it’s “quite disturbing” to see the sexual allegations minimized.

He said the testimony of the two women makes it “essential” that Assange face justice, to either be cleared in a Swedish court or be convicted.

Assange, 47, has denied the sexual misconduct allegations, which he claims are politically motivated. He claims the sex was consensual.

Sweden suspended its investigation into possible sexual misconduct against Assange two years ago because he was beyond their reach while he was living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London with political asylum status. Prosecutors said the investigation could be revived if his situation changed.

Assange was arrested Thursday after Ecuador withdrew his asylum. He is now in Belmarsh Prison in southeast London, waiting to be sentenced for jumping bail in Britain and facing an extradition request from the United States on charges of conspiring to break into a Pentagon computer.

WikiLeaks says Assange will fight the U.S. extradition request and has been meeting with his legal team to plan his defense.

He has not had a chance to enter a plea in response to the U.S. charge, but he says all of his WikiLeaks actions are those of a legitimate journalist.

If Britain receives competing extradition requests, lawyers say the Home Secretary would have some leeway in deciding which takes priority. Considerations usually include which request came first and which alleged crime is more serious.

Most of the lawmakers who signed the letter are from the opposition Labour Party, whose leader, Jeremy Corbyn, wants Britain to refuse to send Assange to the U.S. After Assange’s arrest, Corbyn praised him for exposing U.S. atrocities committed in Iraq and Afghanistan when WikiLeaks released tens of thousands of confidential U.S. documents in 2010.

British politicians are free to lobby the government for a certain course of action, but it’s up to the courts to decide whether the U.S. request for Assange’s extradition – and a possible future request from Sweden – should be honored.

The Home Secretary, a senior Cabinet official, can block extradition under certain circumstances, including cases where a person might face capital punishment or torture in the country seeking their extradition.

Swedish prosecutors opened an investigation into Assange after two women accused him of sexual offenses during a 2010 visit to Sweden. Some of the sexual misconduct accusations are no longer viable because their time ran out. But Swedish prosecutors have said a rape case could be reactivated since the statute of limitations for that runs until August 2020.

After Assange’s arrest this week, Swedish prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson was tapped to look into a request from a lawyer for one of the accusers, to find out whether the case can be pursued.

Elisabeth Massi Fritz, the lawyer for the woman who reported being raped by Assange, told The Associated Press that she would “do everything” to have the Swedish case reopened so Assange can be extradited to Sweden and prosecuted.

The extradition process is not swift, and Assange could appeal several times if decisions go against him. It’s expected it would take a year or longer for him to be sent to the United States or possibly to Sweden even if he ultimately loses in court.

But, Martin said, the event is about more than opposing the left’s agenda.

“The people taking part in the rallies are not just standing against socialism, but are also standing up for liberty and freedom,”

So many 'Patriots' are so utterly clueless about the topic upon which they bloviate.

'Patriots' do not accept welfare from The State.  

'Patriots' do not work in professions that impose violations of Rightful Liberty upon their countrymen.

And the absurdity of the Tea Party holding 'rallies' on 'Tax Day' to protest 'Socialism' and oppressive government is beyond my ability to properly articulate.  The stunning failure to understand the reality in front of them is mind-boggling.

Socialism is not the problem.  Communism is not the problem.  Anarchy is not the problem.  Fascism is not the problem.  Racism is not the problem.

The problem is now and has always been with the -ist, not the -ism.

Social-ists are the problem.  Commun-ists are the problem.  Anarch-ists are the problem.

Don't fight the -ism - that is folly.

Extirpate the -ists - reduce the gene pool of the garbage.

No man or woman has ever died from an -ism.

Death is always at the hands of the -ists...
