In a hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday morning, British District Judge Vanessa Baraitser ruled that WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange will remain in prison, despite the fact that his custodial sentence for “absconding” bail expires on September 22.

The British judge presiding over the hearing ignored the fact that Assange had forfeited the bail monies his supporters had paid; that he had spent close to seven years effectively detained by the British authorities in the small embassy building; and that his right to seek political asylum had been repeatedly upheld by United Nations’ bodies.

This is another deadly example of the elites idea of the rule of law. They seem to be unaware or feel immune to the seeds of wrath that they are continuing to plant. Their fake liberal democratic law is just another pillar collapsing under the lies they have promulgated to keep the 99% from seeing who they really are and to pacify us into believing that the use of their law is the route to eventual justice.

I post stuff about Julian every few days on my FB page -- just in case somebody happens to light on it. Wsws.org is one of the few sites keeping track. It is for me the canonical symbol, like the Cross, of the demonic age we are living in. (See Griffin, The Christian Gospel for Americans). There is a lot of evil, but this thing with Assange is perfectly representative of the pure evil, the exact opposite of anything good.

I still get livid over this. Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Speech should protect Assange. But no, he speaks truth and exposes corruption and abuse. Nothing angers the Criminal Elite more than truth. It's definitely his "abusers" that belong in jail. #Free Assange.

Citizen Trump said WTC blew up on 9/11/2001

Candidate Trump loved wiki-leaks and promised to drain the swamp.

President Trump owns the swamp, by Double-Secret Executive Order.
