The smears of Assange cannot hold up to any level of serious scrutiny.
Quote: "UK officials have no justification, and the UK government is in violation of international law and multiple UN rulings calling for Mr Assange’s immediate release. The UK government is culpable in the prolonged torture and mistreatment of Mr Assange. Indeed, Mr Assange’s life is threatened, both on account of his circumstances in prison as well as repeated public threats on his life made by various government officials in the US, UK, and elsewhere. This is truly a disaster for human rights and international law”.
Good overview of the persecution of Assange, which pulls back the veneer of US, UK, Sweden, and Ecuador supposedly following legal processes (they're not).
Absent from The View. Absent from view. All good. Hope she lays low. And no one ever gives her airtime again.
RussiaGate was like a massive alcohol binge. They danced with Uncle Avenatti with lampshades on. They had one night stand with the intelligence community. They sang Sweet Caroline.
Now, big hangover. Big, big hangover.
Moving tribute to Julian Assange. Kicks ass.
BBC interviews Dr. Nils Melzer on its Newsday program. Dr. Melzer calls for independent psychiatrist to care for Assange, notes that the UK intends to respond "point by point" to his letter, and that he's never in all his experience in dealing with atrocities seen so-called "democratic" countries go after an individual like the UK, US, Sweden, and Ecuador have gone after Assange.
Oh, and notes that the UK, Sweden, Ecuador, and the US are all extremely guilty of inflicting psychological torture on Assange.
Amnesty International is a tool of the US State Department, which itself is wholly and entirely a tool of the CIA. They only declare someone to be a "prisoner of conscience" when it advances the goals of the military industrial complex.
Julian Assange is proof. John Kiriakou is proof. Chelsea Manning is proof. Jeffrey Sterling is proof.
As a physician myself, I echo this call for the UK to guarantee Julian Assange access to medical care.
Also, I condemn the Ecuador government's actions in recording Julian's physician-patient encounters in the Ecuadorian Embassy. Such actions are a horribly grotesque, illegal, unconscionable, violation of physician-patient confidentiality.
