Julian Assange Arrested



CNN is reporting that "British police entered the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on Thursday, forcibly removing the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on a US extradition warrant and bringing his seven-year stint there to a dramatic close." Bastards. this arrest represented everything that is wrong with America AND England. It ties in with Tony Blair.

Although what Julian Assange did was different than what Edward Snowden did, they are both whistle blowers. Edward Snowden reported illegal activity by the NSA. The fact that they want to arrest him is absurd.

Julian Assange reported illegal activity of the US military. He posted leaked video footage of US troops killing a journalist and civilians in Iraq. Arresting Julian for doing that is equally absurd and shows how far away from the principles of the US Constitution modern day America has fallen.

What ever happened to the American Revolution? You remember, the struggle against tyranny. The promise of a free republic protecting free speech. The Boston Tea Party? Paul Revere? Where are those heroes now? Leaking military secrets is dodgy but what if we were born in Germany instead of America? What if we leaked video footage of our troops gassing Jews? If we did that we would be a hero not a traitor. Where are the oath keepers? The ones who swore an oath to protect the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic? Where are they now? The only oath keepers I see are Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.

  1. It is my hope that this was only done to provoke the data dump that Wikileaks had threatened. It is also my hope that both Assange and Snowden will be pardoned by Trump.

    If Assange stands trial, the government may have more trouble getting a jury to convict him than they imagine. "Jury nullification".
