Julia Gillard fails to name law broken by Wikileaks or Julian Assange


www.heraldsun.com.au

PRIME Minister Julia Gillard again has been unable to name any Australian laws broken by the controversial WikiLeaks website or its founder Julian Assange.
Western governments increasingly are calling for Mr Assange to be stopped as WikiLeaks continues to publish more than 250,000 confidential documents from the United States State Department.

But asked directly what Australian laws had been broken by either WikiLeaks or Assange, Ms Gillard said the Australian Federal Police were investigating.

"The foundation stone of it is an illegal act," Ms Gillard said today.

So, this hunting for Assange is becoming more and more suspicius.

PTB wants grab him, no matter the reason. Incidentally, I think the only reason is to try censor hum and his organization. But it seems that this will not happen.

"Prime Minister Julia Gillard AGAIN has been unable to name any Australian laws broken by the controversial WikiLeaks website or its founder Julian Assange.

These minions of PTB are a joke. They do not matter anymore in disguise that justice no longer exists.

What honest is this little world in which we live.

I always liked Julia Gillard. She is a beautiful and elegant leader. Not like any American so called First Lady. Laura Bush and Michelle Obama.

Why would the Prime Minister even be privy to this? Its a case involving allegations of sexual misconduct, not national security. Not to mention the Prosecutor is the one responsible for making the case. It would be like asking Obama about the English guy who hacked into government comp[uters. He could tell you the Justice Department is looking into it, but would not be able to give details.

Kind of a stretch here in my opinion. The arrest warrant was fixed and reissued, and Assange and his lawyer are suppose to meet with British people over bond and possible asylum.

They can't find any laws because it's called journalism, wikileaks are not the ones hacking the information - which is the actual crime. They are simply reporting information given to them, the MSM are also guilty of publishing these cables but none of them are being threatened. To have Sarah Palin go on about how assange should be executed just shows how unconsitiutional people have become - to think you could be executed for freedom of speech? Is this really where we are at in the year 2010? He is not even a united states citizen, he has the right to publish any information he recieves no matter what means it is from, he does not have to answer to the US because they were not able to keep their information secure and someone leaked it to him for public knowledge, and if it's not leaked to him it will still be leaked.

All the legal commentators I have seen talking about this say that Julian Assange has not broken any Australian laws, many go further and say that it is doubtful that he has broken American law.
One such opinion piece can be found here and contains the following quote:


Even if the elements of espionage existed, the Australian Government's pledge to cooperate with US law enforcement would face high legal hurdles. There is a very old common law rule which bars the extradition of "political offenders". In its modern form, Article VII of the bilateral extradition treaty between Australia and the United States requires that extradition "shall not be granted" where an offence is of a "political character".

Agreed, and "Sexual Misconduct" is a seriously weak charge to warrant extradition.

As far as wikileaks goes, Assange is just there trying to make it a responsible organisation; if it wasn't him, it'd be someone else, and better the devil you know, right?
I think J.A has shown great restraint, for which the USA government should be pleased.

I'd be carefull singing Julia Gillards praises.

Source: www.henrymakow.com...



"Here's the plot: an unmarried, foreign-born, atheist woman whose partner is a male hairdresser wants to lead a nation famous for manly men. Her opponent [Tony Abbott] is the Mad Monk - a Speedo-loving amateur boxer who once studied to be a priest." (William Pesek in "An election about nothing that's made for TV")

Australia's current prime minister Julia Gillard is the first woman and first unmarried (cohabiting) childless Prime Minister of Australia.

Australian journalist Andrew Bolt noted that Julia Gillard began as a Communist and was a member of the Socialist Forum from 1998-2002 which later merged with the Fabian Society.

Australian conservatives should be aware that their darling faux-conservative John Howard was also a Fabian. To give credit, at least Julia is open about her left leanings. She is not as open about her lesbian sexual preferences. Many Australians think that Tim Mathieson, Julia's so called partner is a "beard."

One of Julia's first moves as prime minister was to pretend to lift (her predecessor) Kevin Rudd's tax on miners. We have now learned that Gillard did a back room deal favoring the big miners over the smaller ones.

The Rudd tax was paraded as the reason for his failure. It is clear now that corporate media spin began against Rudd in early 2010.

There was a soft droning of "Rudd is a weak leader" and "the party is unhappy" at the same time as a Julia Gillard push. Ms Gillard is not Elle McPherson or Megan Fox. Until late 2009 she was plain Jane in the background. In early February we noticed that she was looking more feminine and somewhat softer. Machinists were, how shall we say ... less inclined to borrow her face to sharpen their drill bits.

GILLARD SIDES WITH ZIONISTS

John Howard announced his commitment to the Iraq war in 2003 in front of a Jewish group in the US. The television news showed him walking out of a meeting surrounded by traditionally dressed Orthodox men, probably Rabbis. The "John Howard Negev Forest" was established in Israel in 2007 in his honour.

Kevin Rudd crossed the line. He dared to stand up to Israel for forging Australian passports and the flotilla raid. Well, he did not really stand up, but at least he commented. Rudd expelled an Israeli diplomat in a hollow gesture. (He was due to return to Israel shortly anyways.) Rudd, unlike Howard was more inclined to resist involvement in Israel's imminent war on Iran. Rudd had also angered the miners and faltered on climate change.

On the passports and the flotilla, Julia kept silent. She towed the party line behind Rudd on carbon trading and the miners tax. Perhaps Julia was encouraged by her live-in partner/handler (a hairdresser who works for an Israeli lobbyist) that she can sit on the throne if a.) she is prepared to sacrifice other people's children in Iran and Palestine b.) she assists the big miners over the small ones - treachery in the workers paradise c.) she pushes ahead with carbon trading known here as the Environmental Trading Scheme or ETS.

Julia now does the bidding of the Israeli lobby, big business and the banks. As a Communist, Julia may not outwardly support the big miners or the Israeli agenda, but as a Fabian the connection is natural. Gradualism is not the gradual distribution of wealth to all parties, it is the gradual draining of wealth to the elite.

Julia's allegiances are complex. She has just signed a preference deal with the Australian Greens in the senate. The Green leader, Bob Brown, is a self admitted homosexual who is green on the outside red on the inside. If Julia is elected and the Greens help her over the line Australia will be in for an emissions trading scheme (ETS) death duties and open boarders. What affect the Green influence will have on the Israeli connection is anyone's guess.

ABBOTT SIDES WITH ZIONISTS

Recently there is a cooling towards Australian Labour in the media. The campaign has become a freak show and every hack journalist seems to be gunning for Labour.

The media swing toward Abbott may have been influenced by his recent genuflection to Israel. At the Australian Israel Chamber of Commerce in Melbourne, Abbott said his government would "never support a one-sided UN resolution against Israel to curry favour with an anti-Israel authority". Rather than remain silent on the flotilla affair as did Gillard, Abbott actually criticized Rudd for overreacting.

So Ms Gillard (of ambiguous sexual orientation) is a Fabian socialist, atheist, foreign born, unmarried woman living with a hairdresser (also of ambiguous sexual orientation) who works for an Israeli lobbyist. She is beholden to the Jewish Lobby, the enviro lobby, the miners, the Greens and its homosexual leader. Her office is built like a masonic temple in the masonic city of Canberra.


Herein lies the problem defeating TPTB or the NWO or Soros or the Rockerfellers or the Bushes or the Zionists or just whoever it is that you believe today is running the world for their own agenda.

Australia - Just Like America, is a free capitalists society - the USA a republic and Australia a constitutional monarchy on its way to becomming a republic.

Whats the common denominator?

Our political systems in both countrys ahve been reducedto two party political machines and the bad nes is the bad guys have bought and paid for both sides of politics in both countries - in effect it doesnt matter a damn who wins because the coproratocracy owns both sides - meaning we are screwed whatever we do.

As regards Ms Gillard and her beard Australias "first bloke'...



So Ms Gillard (of ambiguous sexual orientation) is a Fabian socialist, atheist, foreign born, unmarried woman living with a hairdresser (also of ambiguous sexual orientation) who works for an Israeli lobbyist. She is beholden to the Jewish Lobby, the enviro lobby, the miners, the Greens and its homosexual leader


Hardly a ringing endoresement for nternational diplomacy on the world statge - but prretty much sums up just what an apostate state Australia has slipped into becomming.

For those of us who expect no less - its no real surprise.

Shalom.

You know why? We know why really: BECAUSE NO LAW HAS BEEN ROKEN!

It's just the big propoganda machine in action. MSM are as guilty as the politicians.

The extradition speedbump you posted would only apply to Austrailia, or any territory where Austrailian Law is the law of the land. If an arrest warrant for US charges are issued, and he is in a country other than Austrailia, the austrailian law would not be considered.

That is certainly true, but as the rest of the article notes, no Australian laws have been broken and it is questionable whether any American laws have been broken.
As such Julian Assange should be entitled to protection from the Australian government. Instead as noted in the OP he has been condemned, was originally refused and assistance or re-entry into Australia. It was only after the government began looking for something to charge him with that they realised they needed to at least have a pretense of following Australian law and said that they would allow him concular assistance and to return to Australia if he wishes to do so.

As this thread is about the Australian governments response, I wont get into the response/laws of other countries here.

No offence to you Rebel, but she's another dumb and in some cases sly leader that doesn't know how to run a country properly. The only thing she does well is suck up to America and their leaders... so did Kevin Rudd.

Australia is the new America

Fair enough.. Since wiki released classified US military information about Afghanistan that affected Austrailian forces, would that not be enough for Austrialia to charge him?

Or does Austrailia not have any laws period about disclosing classified information?

The reason I ask here in the States the espionage law that is routinely brought up in discussions involving this topic actually stipulates that in addition to jeopradizing the US, if also includes action against a person for releasing classifed US infomratiuon that affects an Allys National Security.

As A side note im not looking to debate the US law in here, as we have 900 other threads. My question is related to Austrailia, and what their media is saying about this.

Do you remember a post I made a while back about internal discussions aiming to have Assange declared an enemy combatant? Remember I said it would pan out in the media?

Let me give you another very well sourced prediction:

Assange will never spend an hour of jail time for these supposed rapes. The women involved are State Dept. operatives. This sort of tactic is nothing new. Mock trials to get their man is something the State Dept. does all the time. Assange will be in the United States within the next two weeks. But we won't officially find out about it until about a month and a half after extradition.
