The Fake Charge Against Julian Assange Proves That the US Government Has No Integrity

Eventually the Swedish feminist prosecutor who attempted to reopen the investigation of Assange consented to question him in the embassy with the result that she closed her investigation. This ended all excuses for the UK to hold Assange for Sweden. As there was no charge, Assange was not guilty of violating bail. Without a charge there is no bail. That is the way the law used to be before the corrupt British courts pissed all over the law and dishonored British justice.

The US and UK governments refused to honor Assange's political asylum, just as the Soviet government refused to honor the political asylum that the United States gave to Hungarian Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty, who ended up living in the US embassy in Hungary for 15 years. At least the Soviets had more integrity than to arrest the Cardinal inside the US embassy. But the British are devoid of integrity. The only concern of the British government is to obey Washington. They all hope for the 60 million pounds that is Tony Blair's reward for supporting Washington's Iraq invasion.

As both the US and UK governments are more corrupt than the Soviet government was and refuse to abide by international law, Assange was their prisoner in the embassy. He was safe there as long as Rafael Correa was president of Ecuador. But when Correa refused popular demand to let the Constitution be changed so that he could serve another term, Washington got its creep installed, Lenin Moreno, who sold Assange to Washington for an IMF loan.

To be sure you understand, as you have been filled with lies about Assange for almost a decade, he raped no one. He was never charged with raping anyone. He has broken no law. He is a journalist who did nothing but what the New York Times did when the paper published the leaked Pentagon Papers and published some of the same leaked documents for which Assange has been arrested for publishing. He is being framed up on a false nonsense charge because the US government, in order to protect its own criminality, is moving to destroy the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

They will succeed in destroying the First Amendment.

Who is there to stop them?

Not presstitutes. They hate Julian Assange for showing them up and doing the job of a journalist while they lie 24/7 as a propaganda ministry for the ruling establishment. If life were based on breathing integrity from the presstitute media, we would all already be dead.

Not the Republicans or the conservatives. Their patriotism causes them to hate Assange because "he embarrassed the U.S. government." The Republicans are as mindless and unaware of their participation in the murder of the First Amendment as the presstitutes and Democrats. For example, Republican Senator Richard Burr, sent to the Senate by insouciant North Carolinians, expressed his total brainwashing by alleging, ignorantly, that Assange and WikiLeaks have "effectively acted as an arm of the Russian intelligence services for years." The brainwashed Republican Senator from Nebraska, Ben Sasse, called Assange "a wicked tool of Vladimir Putin and the Russian intelligence services" who "deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison."

This extraordinary level of ignorance and pre-trial accusations by US Senators prejudice Assange's trial so severely that if America had honest judges the case would be dismissed on the grounds that an unbiased jury cannot be formed.

Not the Democrats. The Hillary clique are having orgasms over the prospect that Assange will end up like Gaddafi. The brainwashed Democratic Senator from Virginia, Mark Warner, showed his total ignorance of what is transpiring in front of his blind eyes when the fool said of Assange: "what he's really become is a direct participant in Russian efforts to undermine the West and a dedicated accomplice in efforts to undermine American security."

Not the liberal/progressive/left. In thrall to Identity Politics, our "conscience class" wants Assange flayed alive. He is a white male responsible for slavery, for rape, for discrimination against women, blacks, homosexuals and alternative genders. The liberal/progressive/left's attitude is: If we can't get him for these reasons, let them get him for being a Russian spy.

All are too stupid and full of hate to realize that with Julian Assange goes the First Amendment.

One wonders what the idiot Atlanticist Integrationists in Russia are thinking as they advocate sacrificing Russian sovereignty in order to be part of the West. Why do they want to be part of a cruel, inhumane empire that has no concern for truth, justice, and human life? Is it the money that the Atlanticist Integrationists want, invitations to speak at American universities? How can anyone be so stupid as to want to be part of a criminal organization?

What the West needs is someone to stamp it out. The West is evil beyond the meaning of the word.

How do those of us who love our country defend it when our government invades on the basis of transparent lies other countries for the sake of profit, when our government commits high treason by attacking the US Constitution, and when our government punishes truth and those who reveal truth?

Think about the rising crimes committed by US governments since the Clinton regime against the U.S. Constitution, international law, and America's reputation. Clinton violated Washington's promise to Russia that NATO would not be moved to Russia's border and committed war crimes by illegally bombing Serbia and murdering 500,000 Iraqi children with sanctions. The NATO vassals participated in the crimes. George W. Bush illegally invaded and bombed countries, repealed habeas corpus and asserted the power to detain US citizens indefinitely without trial or conviction. Obama destroyed Libya, tried to destroy Syria, overthrew the democratically elected presidents of Honduras and Ukraine, and murdered US citizens without due process of law. The Trump regime is busy at work murdering the First Amendment and overthrowing the democratically elected president of Venezuela.
