He may not be a journalist, but Wikileaks is certainly a publisher.

Every major newspaper in the world, even the ones you or me despise, has cited Wikileaks as a source on one or more occasion, often many occasions.

There's also the fact that Wikileaks has never issued a retraction or correction, in the 12-13 years they have been operating nothing that they have published has ever been proven to be false.

100% Accuracy, 100% Authentic, 100% True

That alone commands some respect, seeing as no other media entity in the world has a flawless track record of success.

The world in general has declined to prosecute anyone for publishing stolen classified information.
Its a big step from a president whom we have heard call the press the enemy of the people. A chiseling away of the first amendment.
We cannot allow this to happen and I seriously doubt that the UK will oblige.

I wonder where you will be when this all comes crashing down.

If he had anything... any little thing at all.

You know this as well as I do.

There is nothing.

He is a cornered rat. And he is acting like a cornered rat.

Let me help you.
If it was Obama threatening the first amendment you would have no problem. There would be no fence. You would firmly be on the opposite side.

Good to see that you can read the writing on the wall.
The ultimate goal is to be able to quash any news or report that does not shine a glowing light on him.

This is coming from the "new" DOJ. Step one in taking down the free press and you all know I do not have any respect for Jillian Assange.
Stand back and see the bigger picture.

What exactly does that mean?
Drones carry cameras don't they? Mostly?
Why try to make it sound like some kind of threat. LOL.

So the identity thief in India who steals and wrecks your credit reputation..... just let him go because he doesn't live here.

Obviously his crimes did not require him to step one foot onto American soil.

And as much as I despise him and his actions along with Manning and Snoden I see this as a toe in the door to ripping the first amendment from the constitution.
Get him for hacking. Not for publishing.

At best it was attempted hacking.

But that doesn't require 19 charges does it Silly?

Even Obama's admin who love to desecrate whistleblower and journalistic rights said this wasn't a case worth pursuing.

1. Get Assange out of the embassy and charged.

2. Charge Assange and get him extradited to the United States.

3. Offer Assange full immunity from pending charges and potential crime in order to testify against Democratic party, DNC, and other top "untouchable" officials

4. Many top officials subsequently arrested and charged, including those we all know and love

This is what would happen in a perfect world........ but we all know it won't.

I can keep dreaming though.

At least you're honest. Here's how I see it playing out.

*Fast forwards through first few steps*

3. Secret evidence is used in court for national security concerns under the patriot act, Assange get's super long sentence and no one knows exactly why.

If you think this is bad, wait until you see what the justice department does to the traitors who have, and currently work inside the US government!



Is that a reference to the 500trillion sealed indictments? I hope so, I've been waiting for that LARP to play out now for over two years. Hopefully Mr. 4D Chess makes this happen soon so all of you can save face.

But my money is on the moon crashing into the earth long before that happens.

Easy there Augy. There's gotta be something to all that or else we wouldn't have our very own star farm talking about it so in depth.

I'm going to go with more freedom is always better than less.

Is Assange a giant douche?

Yes.

Is Manning a giant douche?

yes.

But it's not about personalities. It's about free speech and transparency.

It's Douchette now.

I think we and the "justice" system need to ask ourselves what their intent was.

Was it whistle blowing and journalism? If so, they're protected under the whistle blowing act of 89'.

Or was it espionage? If so, than the espionage act can be used to prosecute them.

The problem is, the espionage act has been used in such a way (thanks Obama admin), that intent isn't allowed to be discussed in a case where the espionage act is being applied. All of our BS meters should be pegged to the right.

Edit: just so everyone knows, Assange is facing 178 years.
