Dark Journalist has given some great coverage too.

On ZH someone posted an interesting idea. I doubt it is true, but it is reasonable and should be considered. Basically, how long would you want to stay locked up in an embassy? I wouldn't want to be in one at all.

Also, the investigation into the deep state is still ongoing, and they need witnesses against it who have more evidence to support the case. Who better than Assange? The theory proposed then, not mine, is this:

They bring him back to the USA, broker some sort of deal, he testifies against the deep state, and he's pardoned or something similar.

Trump is acting very strangely when it comes to this though, and yesterday he said he didn't know anything about Wiki Leaks. "That's not my thing." Uhm, hello? This is the same guy that mentioned Wiki Leaks 140+ times while campaigning.

I find it hard to believe that the deep state oligarchy, full of murderers and pedophiles, will actually be taken down. Who knows though. Stranger things have happened. No matter what happens we know Assange was part of the fight against them.

For that I salute him.

I'm curious what the Hygiene issues were. Did he just smell? What is going on with that.
Outside of that, I agree with your comments.

·
·

The hygiene "issues" are part of the smear campaign to dehumanise him. It'll be easier for them to make him vanish into a cell for life if they kill his character first. And even if he smelled, imagine the health issues anyone would develop while living in confinement for 7 years and the last year, without regular visitors, barred from medical treatment, video and audio recorded in every room. All of this is a form of psychological torture which I am sure had an effect on his mood. Depressed people don't care about basic needs like mentally healthy human beings.

Was Pamela Anderson not a regular visitor? A huge reason why the embassy grew tired of him was his dating habits. For a conservative christian country, they didn't go down well. He had quite a few accounts with OK Cupid it is emerging. Interesting you said smear campaign , the hygiene issue is that allegedly that he smeared his own faeces on the walls of a room and the cleaners in the embassy leaked it. If a 'guest' did that in my house I would be pissed off as well. Don't forget he was the one who turned up at the embassy disguised as a pizza delivery man. The log going into and out of the embassy is very interesting indeed. I don't believe the guy should face any charges over revealing truths but he was no saint either!

Where are the sources of all that you said? Are the embassy's logs publicly available?

To be honest, I was really shocked, reading this. For me it was the evidence, that law&order is dead when you play against the USA.

A sad day for the world which has lost the believe that one man can achieve something really important and rely on the laws.

FREE ASSANGE !!!

This is what happened when the government prioritized its protection rather than the pursuit of the truth. Time to say Goodbye to real journalism.

I suppose it was only a matter of time and pressure from foreign countries like the US and UK. I'm kind of indifferent. Assange knew what he was getting himself into and if you play with big powers of the world you're probably going to find yourself in a lot of trouble.

Yes, he was able to expose a lot of dirty laundry, but he has to ask himself, is it really worth it?

I don't think he did anything worthy of this treatment but the way he handled the Panama Papers and Clinton email leaks is disappointing for sure.

·

Why? He was simply the messenger.

·
·

He came out against the Panama Papers and started timing release for maximum impact for some parties but minimal impact for others. If you want to do that fine, but you can’t say your impartial.

look so perfect in this pic!


You're upping the drama to new levels! Have a DRAMA.

To view or trade DRAMA go to steem-engine.com.

Please, piss off my posts.

·

No problem I was called by a holder of DRAMA for ... You know people who like to have fun.

I have no issue with you flagging it. I have no way to blacklist which authors have a sense of humor and which ones do not!

Flag accepted in good humor.

·
·
·

That thing just doesn't look like I received a token.

Also do you realize how insulting it is to have Assange's arrest be considered "Drama"?

·
·
·
·

No, I have no idea what makes you offended. It seems like any view that is different than your own...

Or someone not accepting your view over theirs.

Look there are 3 different story lines with Assange's persona..

  1. he's a traitor
  2. He is a hero
  3. He is a fake personality, created to make us fight and feel afraid of the government.

While I am sure you have a strong opinion, is it really that hard to see that others can see it differently?

I don't mind that you flagged it. I really don't. If I could tell it not to comment on your posts.. I would.

Have a great day.

Such drama, you've earned a DRAMA!

To view or trade DRAMA go to steem-engine.com.

thats what happens when you tell the truth

The most interesting question should be "What does this mean for ANY foreign journalist in any Country?" what would happen to say a U.K. journalist in the Ukraine if they post something the Chinese (PRC) doesn't like? In the U.S. we can't put Julian Assange on trial for "Treason" because he is not a U.S. citizen. So why are they (U.S.) so adimant about arresting him? Why is Australia letting the U.S. do this? Why did Ecuador allow one of it's own citizens be removed from it's Embassy by a foreign government? It is without a doubt all about the $$$

Free Julian !

One more step closer to world war.

He knew it was just a matter of time because you and I have drank the "Kool-Aid" and are now "sheeples and not free anymore"

Is there a source where we can better understand all the sides of the story and have an impartial bio of Julian Assange? I realize how little I know about his story and I feel a bit ashamed of it
