Assange theatricals to cover over May’s treachery

There seems little doubt that the Assange saga is theatre.  Read Richard D Hall if you are in doubt.  So why now?  It was pretty clear some kind off news stunt was going to be pulled the day after May sold out Britain, and Conservative MPs finally woke up and smelled the coffee.

WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Arrested In London To Face Hacking Conspiracy Charge In The US

Julian Assange’s lawyer says the arrest was for breach of bail and an extradition request from the U.S.

April 11, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –  WASHINGTON – After seven years of self-imposed exile, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested inside the embassy of Ecuador in London Thursday on charges of conspiring to hack government computers in what prosecutors called the largest compromise of classified information in U.S. history.

Assange, 47, was arrested Thursday by authorities in the United Kingdom to be extradited to the United States.

The charges against Assange, revealed Thursday morning, alleged that he engaged in a conspiracy with Chelsea Manning, a former intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army, to assist Manning in cracking a password for Defense Department computers.

The computers were connected to the Secret Internet Protocol Network, which was used for classified documents and communications, prosecutors said. Manning, who had access to the computers in connection with her duties as an intelligence analyst, was using the computers to download classified records to transmit to WikiLeaks, according to the department.

Cracking the password would have allowed Manning to log on to the computers under a username that did not belong to her, prosecutors alleged.

During the conspiracy, Manning and Assange engaged in real-time discussions regarding Manning’s transmission of classified records to Assange, according to the department. Manning told Assange that “after this upload, that’s all I really have got left” the department said. Assange replied, “curious eyes never run dry in my experience,” the department said.

Assange is charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison if convicted, but actual sentences are typically less than the maximum.

Barry Pollack, a U.S. lawyer for Assange, criticized the arrest and said Assange would need medical treatment that had been denied for seven years.

“It is bitterly disappointing that a country would allow someone to whom it has extended citizenship and asylum to be arrested in its embassy,” Pollack said.” Once his health care needs have been addressed, the UK courts will need  to resolve what appears to be an unprecedented effort by the United States seeking to extradite a foreign journalist to face criminal charges for publishing truthful information.

Metropolitan Police moved in after Ecuador formally withdrew its asylum for Assange, an Australian native, and subsequently revoked his Ecuadorian citizenship.

The arrest followed months of carefully orchestrated diplomatic maneuvering by the Ecuadorian government that had long soured on its relationship with Assange.

    I think that Assange is a limited hangout. The arrest yesterday was simply hilarious, so, so, fake. Complete with a book prop and smirking cops too, they knew that it was just for the cameras. Perfect timing for Treason May like you say. It took her off the headlines after she had just sold UK “democracy” down the river a few hours before……….

    If the arrest had been real then it would not have been shown on live tv in such a theatrical manner. All it needed was a couple of burly plods to frog march him into a vehicle in the embassy basement. Then whisk him away to a cell nearby. Instead we got that ludicrous theatre with smirking plods, stage props, his granddad beard and hair. A farce for tv that will probably now run for years to come……

    Assange is an asset, I’m 99.9% sure of that. Here is a link from yesterday that exposes Julian the spook. A vid from a foul mouthed, but astute, commentator. He lays out the lies and deceptions quite clearly for you:

    “Honeypot Asset Julian Assange Stars in Street Theater Arrest After Years of Spying on Guests”

    If you want a more detailed expose of Julian the spook then look at Richard D Halls website, specifically:

    Show 240 from July 2017: “Wikileaks and Julian Assange”

    Yes I know that Hall and Johnson have been exposed as likely limited hangouts themselves but, like all limited hangouts, he tells a lot of truth. He eviscerates Julian in this one

    Finally apols for my slow reply Tap. I’ve been very very busy. I will get back to you next week. Meanwhile congrats on some great recent blog posts. Pete

    That Assange is a spook is beyond question. He worked for the pro-Trump, anti Clinton constitutionalist faction of the CIA. He remains an enemy of the Brennan/Mueller faction which is behind the Russia diversion. He therefore has real enemies. Trump is now a prisoner of the Deep State. Assange has real enemies and may well be hung out to dry. His position on 9/11 suggests that he may be a Mossad asset. I wouldn’t like to be in his position. Spending 7 years in a room in the Embassy of Ecuador isn’t fun. Spooks with enemies have a rough time. I don’t think that Assange has cheque for a million waiting for him, though he might have a long spell in a US jail, like other Trump supporters, such as Manafort.
