New Zealand citizen journalist Suzi Dawson, herself a whistleblower who has taken political asylum in Russia to avoid persecution by the New Zealand government, listed what she considered the ten most important achievements by Julian Assange and Wikileaks. This was in a interview with Jimmy Dore.

Here they are:

1) "Wikileaks has been keeping the historical record intact, and is actually combating the digital loss as web pages and websites are constantly being taken down from the internet by the powers that be. In this current paradigm they're actually scrubbing entire websites and domains at every opportunity. They're trying to erase information from our living history. And Wikileaks' founding charter says that any information that's at risk of censorship or deletion can find a safe harbor at Wikileaks."

2) "Wikileaks enables victims of persecution to have admissible evidence to fight their cases in court. 40,000 cases around the world have had Wikileaks documents submitted as evidence to the court."

3) "They've maintained a 100% accuracy record over ten years of publishing."

4) "Wikileaks is still publishing despite the full force of the Empire being used against them. Intelligence agencies, financial service providers, hostile media and law fare, and of course now Julian Assange's solitary confinement, we still see Wikileaks releases being published."

5) "Wikileaks has established a digital library of over 10 million documents, containing pristine datasets, the full relevance of which will only become apparent years into the future. Every current news story can be further informed by doing a key word search to see what Wikileaks archives contain about topics or persons or places that may be relevant to that news story."

6) "Wikileaks has established a whole new way of doing journalism. They also initiated the first anonymous drop boxes, which we now see that a similar technology is being used by media outlets across the globe."

7) "Wikileaks has become the vanguard of press freedom, always pushing at the boundaries of what is acceptable in publishing. And that is incredibly important because as they are pushing those boundaries further and further out, it allows independent media and citizen media to fill that space in between. We can go further and do more significant things because Wikileaks is out there taking the heat for us."

8) "Wikileaks has published leaks on every country in the world without geopolitical bias."

9) "Wikileaks leaves no source behind, and not only do they go above and beyond to support their sources, they've actually established other organizations to support other at risk journalists and whistleblowers, such as the Courage Foundation, and we now have proven that Julian Assange was involved in the establishment of the Freedom of the Press Foundation."

10) "Julian saved the life of Edward Snowden, who is renowned as the greatest whistleblower of our generation, and was brought to you by Wikileaks."

Julian Assange should be getting a Nobel Prize, not being persecuted.

What can we do to save this courageous, heroic man?

Can we get 50,000 people to show up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to provide him a "human corridor" to escape to another embassy? They can't arrest or kill 50,000 people.

Ya think!

Which Embassy d'ja have in mind?

How far is it to the Russian?

And, are we walking or driving, in this dream escape?

Just dealing a hand from the real world!

Or, perhaps mistakenly, I'm being too facetious and God

Great idea, John. At least it's the best I've heard, indeed the only one I've heard. I had visions of a helicopter or dropping him a jet pack. I wonder if the Yellow Jackets in France could or would divert their energies for this?


Do we have a willing embassy, or a list of likely ones to approach? I'll pass this on to John Pilger and we should probably think of others; Caitlin Johnson comes to mind.

You're the best! Reformers like Chris Hedges say we need to take to the streets and perform acts of civil disobedience. Well, this is about as civil -- in both senses -- and disobedient as it gets. This is a direct affront to power, the police, the cabal.

Julian Assange's work sets a new standard for understanding and citizen participation, and demonstrates that truth should transcends national boundaries. Every government is guilty of holding back important and necessary information from its citizens, sometimes intentionally misleading them for what it considers a "higher purpose". To the extent that such deception is exposed, we are all liberated.

50,000 people can still be scattered by various "crowd control" weapons (i.e. water cannons, sound cannons). (The fact that anyone would build sound cannons is disturbing.)

But, if a good number of them were made up to look like Julian, that might put an interesting spin on their efforts to locate and snatch him, and give someone a chance to whisk him out of there. (I know, sounds like something you'd see in a comedy-styled drama.)

Exactly! I was thinking maybe 50 look-a-likes would be necessary. It would be out of a comedic drama, but with a lot at stake.

Now, there's a disturbing image! (The real LG is bad enough.) :)

I was thinking just handing out all these JA masks and cloaks, and having everyone, including JA himself, wear them.

Of course, it doesn't actually have to be "Assange Attire". Any identity would work. We can go with "Gaga Gear", if you really want.

We need to do something. Those already there in the "vicinity" could have better stealth since the services, US and UK are way ahead on planning contingencies. Perhaps one option is to generate and sustain brute force resistance, materially and digitally, wherever the murderous bastards house him. It is obvious that as soon as they get him, he will be subjected to chemical interrogation and torture. They can't afford to kill him but they can turn him into a vegetable. He is right up there with stopping war which is the global elites number one preoccupation. This could be the lightning rod.

You know much more about this than I do in terms of logistics and planning. I'm trying to directly engage hard-core Assange supporters -- for example, the Suzi Dawson cited in the article -- to put some sort of large-scale rally together. I think your "brute force resistance" is the required order of the day. Whatever we do will involve bashing heads, infantry-like assaults. It's not going to be balloons and flowers, but it's time for some serious civil disobedience, hopefully short of actual exchanges of gunfire. Look at what's going on in France. Those protesters mean business.

The U.S. is totally out of control. Now I see they had their lapdog vassal to the north arrest the Huawei COO, Meng Wanzhou, to have her extradited. No Canadian or U.S. laws have been broken, but Huawei is accused of violating the sanctions against Iran. If you have a Persian cat, you are under surveillance and might be disappeared by the MAGA cops. Beware!

It appears Debbie Lusignan went dark recently. See comments here in westenra.blogspot.c om/2018/08/debbie-s ane-progressive-makes -return.html?m=1. Spaces added since I can't post link normally via phone and long url.


Maybe JA could dress as British cop or security guard? Those folks aren't the brightest. No word from Pilger yet.

Interestingly, at least to me, I had recently seen "Seemorerocks" in something referring to Guy McPherson. Only made the connection a short while ago. Here is that website, that looks most interesting after a quick look and reading one article click here

I get different results for the same "click link" on my phone and computer. The one I thought I was posting is http:// robinwest enra.bl ogspot.com/ (with spaces here to fit it exactly as on my url on computer). Searching "mcpherson" on computer on that page turns up nothing, but the climate links are on the right. One of those, at least, was directly to one with Guy McPherson.

Try "seemorerocks guy mcpherson" in a Google search--I just did and found a video that I hadn't seen before.

She put herself in front of the firing squad. Maybe she got tired of dodging bullets.

I dunno, but I can't help worrying about what might have happened to her, and I hate speculating where information is scarce.

With all the false-left-wing calls for censorship and punishment for "fake news spreaders", and all the acceptance of Orwellian principles on the rise, I can only hope she didn't become a victim of the New Thought Police.

Ignorance seems more contagious than enlightenment these days. I'm not following Debbie, so I'm not sure what you're referring to. Having said that, nothing would surprise me anymore.

Such a slow, painful process. One by one people are waking up to the impending disaster. Let's see, by my calculations, we only need to get to 7,236,177,843 more folks, then we can meet for lunch in Paris. By then, we can book a restaurant with a nice view of the English Channel lapping up against the boardwalk right below us.

I wish I could be optimistic. I've sent thousands -- no exaggeration -- and thousands of messages, emails, Tweets, FB postings, FB Messenger, to hundreds and hundreds of high-visibility activists like Pilger. You should see me mailing list. It's an encyclopedia of everyone you would like to talk to. I've only gotten two direct responses. Dennis Kucinich responded, we set up a phone call, and we talked for 25 minutes three years ago. He said my ideas were original and very promising, and be sure to keep in touch. He has never responded since. Noam Chomsky acknowledged by email receiving a paperback copy of one of my books, thanked me, but noted he would not have time to read it.

What can I say? I don't take any of this personally. But all of them lament the horrible state of the world, some propose more failing strategies, all recommend we DO SOMETHING, then ignore any attempt at brainstorming. Too busy. Have to meet with their publicists. Have deadlines for more dead end articles. Have to get their eyebrows trimmed. Feed their French-speaking mynah bird. Send their granddaughter a graduation gift. Get a hernia operation. Whatever. So much to do as we march like lemmings into the abyss.

I've had similar experiences, but also a surprising number of connects. On the matter of JA, I'm pleased to see how many are speaking loud and clear, but depressed by how many aren't. If I had a reliable answer you'd have seen it by now. Staying aware and open to possibilities is what I tell myself.

I always try to stay open and aware. They can say 'no' a hundred times but only have to say 'yes' once. That's what I keep telling myself.

Then there's the ultimate metric called reality, a sobering yardstick.

Over three days, I posted a link to this article on over 120 political FB groups, all claiming to be left-leaning, progressive activists. I can't quote the dozens of venomous, hateful comments I got, because they would be filtered out here for extreme violence, abuse, and profanity. I was called an idiot, traitor, scumbag, troll, on and on. Julian Assange was called a rapist, Russian agent, Putin's and Trump's pawn, deserving of death by any means and method. Guilty in the court of public opinion. Kill him.

This is my first foray back into FB groups in several months. I came away realizing that a HUGE PERCENTAGE of U.S. citizens have bought the Russiagate propaganda hook-line-and-sinker. Thank you, Rachel Maddow, MSNBC, NPR, CNN, the NSA, CIA, State Department, which are apparently all housed in the same building. It's very difficult remaining hopeful when so many people accept lies as truth, evil as good, oppression as freedom, knee-jerk mimicry as thinking. Thank goodness I now keep a tank of nitrous oxide at my side at all times.

We had. our best friends over last night. They don't like Julian because he released documents that hurt Hillary. They have a large coffee table book of Obama on their living room table. Gotta get me some NO.

No decent person wants to hurt Hillary. I sure don't. I just want her to be the first person to live on Mars. Maybe Obama and Michelle could be her neighbors. Blue Dogs for the Red Planet.

I'm curious, John, if the negative comments you received made up the large majority of the replies. Were there also many positive responses?

I'd say the majority of comments were negative. At the same time, I got hundreds of 'Likes', whatever any of this means. I say that because I've gotten similar positive and negative reactions on articles on my own website where I have installed a traffic analysis app. And I can tell at a glance that 99% of the people liking and hating my posting didn't read the article. So what does any of this add up to on Facebook? People see a headline, and they have some instant opinion, react with a point-and-click, or ill-formed idiotic comment, often without having any idea what the article is about, only what they think it's about based on the title.

This time around, however, even recognizing the superficiality of the entire FB environment -- even sadly among those political Facebookers who call themselves "progressive" -- was both a shock and a wake-up call. All those negative comments were by people who were already outraged -- which is why they took the time to comment -- about Assange, Trump, Putin, Russia, Russiagate, Hillary's catastrophic failure at the polls, condemning me for even writing anything about any of it. I have no way of knowing how sizable this insane mob is, but I do know they are grossly out of touch, grotesquely misinformed, destructively engaged on some level with political activism, and more than happy to inflict their ignorance and anger on anyone and everyone. There was nothing in my article which would provoke their kind of response in a decent, rational human being. These folks were not decent or rational. On the contrary, they were virulent, vulgar, psychotic at best, or diabolical tools of the Deep State, alt-right or the imperious tyrants of the ruling elite at worst -- a malignant militia of morons.

If any sizable number of U.S. citizens embrace their thinking, we're in very big trouble. Because it means the inmates are definitely running the asylum now and we've got no place to hide.

I caught that yesterday, and it sent up a red flag for me. It's a bitter reminder that Canada is, indeed, a U.S. vassal, and our cops are ready to "help out" in the U.S "War on Everyone".

It's more unsettling to know we'll nab someone who hasn't broken any laws in our country, or the country "requesting" the arrest. Just like Britain with Assange. You'd think such conduct would be in violation of international law.

Makes me sick. I feel like the child of a mobster, sitting by helplessly, as I watch my parents commit crimes.

Sometimes, as much as we might love them still and have fond memories of good times long ago, it's necessary to lock our parents up in the basement chained to the washing machine.
