I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO CONFIRM THIS STORY.
THOUGH KAREN KWIATOWSKI IS USUALLY A RELIABLE SOURCE, I HAVE DE-HEADLINED IT.  - JOSH MITTELDORF (Tue 6PM)

Karen stands by her story, has a secret inside source.  See comment section.

  Details   DMCA

A drug has been administered that induces psychosis.  Assange is hospitalized, incoherent and unable to communicate sensibly. The chemical is called BZ.  Here is a description from the New Yorker:

“Exposed soldiers exhibited bizarre symptoms: rapid mumbling, or picking obsessively at bedclothes and other objects, real or imaginary. “…The drug’s effect lasted for days. At its peak, volunteers were totally cut off in their own minds, jolting from one fragmented existence to the next. They saw visions: Lilliputian baseball players competing on a tabletop diamond; animals or people or objects that materialized and vanished. ….

I don't know how they expect to get away with this with the world's eyes on him. This has to be illegal. even in the UK. If only the UN would do something. for once.

Since he's still in Britain's custody, I would say, if this is true, they've just raised the punishment for "jumping bail".

Assange has not been charged in Britain for spying, or anything else that would allow them to "interrogate" him.

How do we verify he's been drugged?

no telling what his sources are, but I doubt this writer would publish this without confirmation. He is saying that the CiA is interrogating him- read torturing him - even though he has not been extradited or had a decision on extradition. The entire west is now an authoritarian nightmare.

I see other reports coming out about it now. Not that I ever doubt Josh's due diligence. I just wondered how such a thing is discovered and/or verified, since Julian's being kept pretty much out of everyone's sight.

So, assuming he's now being literally tortured, this has become a situation where Australia should be yanking him out of there. He is, first and foremost, an Australian citizen, and the country is supposed to be protecting him.

This whole thing is making me sick.

Looks like I goofed there, Lila.

When I searched for "Assange being drugged", I got a bunch of results and thought I had some other reports. I went back to get some links for you, and realized they all said "Assange... dragged". (As in "dragged out of the Embassy".)

Sorry, the only other I've seen is the Kathy Kwiatkowsky piece we've already seen here and here.

Naturally, we must keep an eye out for more on this, because if it's true (and it likely is), we'll see something else soon (either saying it's true or trying to say it isn't - either way it would be true).

I don't trust LewRockwell.com. They are loony anarchists. From their site:

"The daily news and opinion site LewRockwell.com was founded in 1999 by anarcho-capitalists Lew Rockwell [send him mail] and Burt Blumert to help carry on the anti-war, anti-state, pro-market work of Murray N. Rothbard."

Hmm. What is an "anarcho-capitalist", anyway? (Interesting hybrid.) And what is "pro-market", exactly.

If it weren't for the author, I might be inclined to question the whole story, but this Kathy Kwiatkowsky has put out a number of good pieces. I've just never gone to that particular site to read them (never heard of it until now). Conundrum. Hopefully, this isn't one of them.

The trouble is, this one is not exactly hard to believe.

Well...I never heard that term before. But if it means a capitalist who wants the government to disappear so that the "free market" can function without interference that would describe everything I have read about the philosophy of government and economics proposed by Lew Rockwell. Rand Paul and his son seem to advocate that.

Yes, until now I thought Karen K. was pretty much OK, and her article has nothing to do with anarchy or an unlimited market. So...you like Murray Rothbard? Read this: click here

Truthfully, I've never heard about Rothbard. (I'm really not well-versed in American history.)

"Paleolibertarianism", eh? Looks like another "sanitized" euphemism for white supremacism. But I can see why you're not a fan of Rockwell. (Someone else I'm just now hearing about. Thanks for that!)

I might disagree with you on this, Jerry, I've been acquainted with "Lewellyn"

and Burt personally and through email since attending a Health and Wealth Group

in SFO when Ron Paul declared for President in 2005. Burt has since died in CAL.

I read Lew Rockwell.com every issue, not agreeing every time, of course.

As many have been saying there are no more nations. If British cops can bust into an Ecuadorian embassy why should we be surprised that US CIA agents are torturing an Australian in a British prison. the world is sick.... I was just remembering all of the so-called terrorists - hapless loners set up by the FBI to plant a bomb - all of them showed up in court in a vegetative state, unable to testify on their own behalf. I have to wonder if this drug, BZ is what was used to achieve that.

msm - newspapers and cable news - has a huge amount of coverage of Pam Anderson's visit with Assange at Belmarsh today . She was allowed in with the Wikileaks editor. Both were teary-eyed as they left the prison and implied that Assange was dangerously ill. All I can glean from those reports is that if he was forcibly interrogated and injected with psycho drugs, it did not happen today. But his weakened state does not rule out the possibility that it happened on other days, when his attorney was not permitted to see him. Evidently he is locked in a cell, and they had to converse through a small window in the door. so not good.

Karen Kwiatkowski writes (Tue 8PM):

I cannot [tell you the source].

It is from someone I personally trust on that side of the
ocean. I not only believe this particular occurrence (and I believe it
is not over yet) I have studied what has been done to others in places
like Belmarsh, and other rendition sites, and this is not only not new
for the US intel community, it is not even shocking. What is shocking
is the lack of any Assange coverage in DC and the US, not a single
Congressperson is talking about it, and I understand none of the Members
of Parliament are either.

They are doing this to Julian for one main fu*cking reason. That reason is to send a clear and unmistakeable message to any wannabes, now or in the future, that have or get, inside information that they might think about releasing that reveals the truth about how we are all getting fu*cked.

I have had enough. I am booking a flight to Andromeda if anyone wants to come along. It will be a long flight so bring along a very thick book or three. And, we can all enjoy the inflight movie show. Andromeda is supposed to be a beautiful galaxy. I am sure we will like it...

Same promise as with our farewell yacht voyage, I'll bring the oatmeal cookies, no raisins. :)

All right. I have gotten the message several times now, no raisons. As long as you bring the oatmeal cookies, I will eat them, sans raisons. :)

Since Leslie - :) - will be along on the flight, I will be happy, even sans raisons. By the way, we will be flying first class. I'm buying, I know how to get cheap tickets. I used to fly for an intergalactic airline.

Boring, ain't I? But glad to know I made my point, at long last.

So...how do you feel about butterscotch chips?


Together with this gruesome Assange mystery and today's PCR piece on Iran, stuck together with our Venezuela BS, I agree Andromeda has become a rational choice.

Somebody! Quick! Call Elon Musk! :)

This is the bleeding edge of speculative journalism. I don't know if this story is true. Just the fact that it could be true reminds us how far we've come from the time when we thought we lived in a country whose actions in the world were basically dcecnt and grounded in a quest toward freedom.

There are some things we can never know, but I think we will find out before long whether Assange was tortured.

Why do you suppose his allies and attorneys are not telling the public what has happened to him.

It's quite possible they may not even know what's going on, or see enough to be able to say it openly. Even Julian may not be able to tell them, depending on how the drugs might be getting to him. His every move and word are likely being closely monitored as well.

They might suspect something, but they'd have to be careful not to say anything until they have proof. They're already dealing with a completely compromised legal farce.

Well I'm guessing here - but Pamela Anderson and the wiki editor looked forlorn , she described feeling nauseous and sick - so I think it possible that Assange was incoherent and unable to communicate in a real way. and for their own reasons they did not want to announce that. possible. just sayin'

While I wouldn't be surprised to find out he's being tampered with, I also try to keep in mind that his whole ordeal has not been conducive to a healthy presence either.

The isolation, alone, is enough to ruin anyone's spirit. It interferes with everything else - sleeping, eating, etc. That's why isolation is considered a bona fide form of torture. For him, this has been his life for the last 7 years.

I want to believe that at least *some* features of British law are still alive. (If for no other reason but to help convince myself he's not being drugged.) He's Britain's prisoner, and only "guilty" of "skipping bail". Even for "evil lords", his "crimes" don't warrant allowing a foreign party to torture him (of course, the solitary confinement they've put him in doesn't fit either, but alas...).

Equally important as 'it could be true' is that we are not surprised. Enraged, grieved; but not surprised.

And even if it comes out to be not true; part of us will continue to believe it and fear it and be helpless against it.

The grand design of demoralization.

This is not surprising as the US does not want to give Assange an opportunity in court to tell what he knows, and also that the US is committing a crime once again by silencing the press.

From Suzie Dawson:


This is fake news. Julian was never in the prison hospital, or under interrogation as claimed by Karen. His lawyers, Kristinn and Pamela, and other visitors he is receiving would have been raising hell if this was the case (and filing lawsuits)


Someone is feeding disinfo to Karen, and her circulation of such unfounded claims is very upsetting to those closest to Julian


Would I put it past these agencies to do or plan something so nasty? No. But in this case they aren't yet, and the truth matters.


Depicting Julian as drugged, psychotic and chemically lobotomized is untrue, unfair and potentially damaging, given his ongoing legal cases in multiple jurisdictions.
