    Has anyone noticed that, for all the leaks on just about everyone, there isn’t one leak around Israel. Go back to what Zbigniew Brzezinski said about Wikileaks and assange.

    George Pell
    In a world where virtually everything reported or repeated by any media is either an exaggeration, a one sided out of context presentation, or a blatant lie, the significance in this drama is not in the accuracy, shocking vileness, or truth of the charges, but in the conviction. Whether it was just failure to act on reported offences or actually personally perpetrating the offences, is secondary.
    Kris Kristofferson at the age of 80 odd in 2018, sang “When they prove something wrong that you believed in so long, you go crazy!”. This must now take the form of a massive increase in doubt and questioning. Apart from the obvious questioning of the virtues of the Catholic church, this logically tarnishes the entire Christian faith, and as we have already seen in recent times, the whole concept of “religion” as we know it in modern culture is increasingly regarded with suspicion if not outright rejection. Additionally, as might be expected from staunch and devout believers, the suspicion, doubt, and questioning will also extend to the political motivation and possible ulterior motives of the legal process and probably more significantly, to the dubious “factual” veracity of the mainstream media reporting or portrayal of it. True or not, many will get their first real taste of doubt in that at least one of the things they believed in must be wrong.
    Once favoured as a potential pope, George Pell now faces prison as a convicted paedophile, the lowliest of a long string of sex offenders in an ever widening net of social rejection of any kind of sex. I might point out that, a little like the old joke about “just one goat”, his rigid upholding of values regarding homosexuality and abortion for instance, are not held to his credit. These are in fact seen as indicators of his sexual “perversion”, and it is hoped that this purge will now open the way for the church to embrace some more serious child sexual fiddling in the form of compulsory five year old GLBTIQ sex education.
    I welcome the fact that Christianity is now the fastest declining religion in the world, but I lament that it is at least partly for the wrong reasons, and neither do I subscribe to the implied view that Islam is by default any better. Whilst I have always objected to the church’s fiddling and meddling with the upbringing and shaping of children, I am perfectly aware that the scope for distorted objectives is not diminished by leaving this in the hands of single parents, same sex lovers, or any others experimenting with various sexual perversions and aberrations. Even ordinary old fashioned heterosexual couples are not automatically exempt from the most hideous forms of child molestation, mistreatment, or paedophilia.
    My view is that observance and even worship of natural laws, instincts, and inhibitions, is by far the best way to minimise these repugnant offences. Under the heading of “repugnant offences”, I am not referring to what I or any one may find offensive, but what anyone could find offensive! This would immediately reveal the correct path.

    I just had a thought about what could be discouraging Trump to absolve Julian Assange, even though Julian Assange could help Trump defend himself.

    Chelsea Manning exposed the crimes committed by Blackwater in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Trump is very friendly with Betsy DeVos and her brother, Eric Prince, who owns the huge mercenary corporation, formerly known as Blackwater.

    The Prince family is an extremely conservative, evangelical Christian force with a lot of money to contribute to Trump.

    Chelsea Manning did major damage to Blackwater when she exposed vivid videos of mass murders of innocent Afghans and Iraqis, committed by Blackwater, online in violent, murderous videos.

    Chelsea Manning was silenced by sending her to prison, publicly framed as a traitor. Chelsea was tortured to the point of two attempted suicides, attracting negative press for the Obama administration.

    Ultimately, Obama gave Chelsea a shortened sentence, preventing the responsibility for her inevitable death.

    Obama and friends must have assumed that Chelsea had been sufficiently terrorized and she was no longer a threat to the official government explanation presented by the media for their crimes.

    Chelsea Manning was obviously not cowed by her abusers. She continues to be defiant publicly. Chelsea has a large progressive following, which is not so convenient for corporate and government criminal co-conspirators.

    Not what the CIA expected.

    Chelsea Manning has to be discredited in order to keep Julian in prison and the ugly truth still hidden. That is why Chelsea was subpoenaed.

    The DeVos family has untold millions to bribe people in power to keep Julian silenced, out of public view.

    Before Chelsea, Julian and Edward Snowden, no one had been able to get the true documentation regarding US and allies’ government crimes.

    Like so many corporate and political entities, left and right, guilty of criminal activity, all guns are out for whistleblowers and those who fight back for truth.

    Tulsi Gabbard was asked about her opinion about the WH position on Wikileaks
    and Julian Assange and she said “Obviously, the information that has been put out has exposed a lot of things that have been happening that the American people were not aware of and have spurred some necessary change there,”

    The DNC made a new rule to keep Tulsi Gabbard our if the upcoming presidential debates
    Unless she can raise 65,000 in two weeks she will be barred from participating.

    She is the only candidate vigorously opposing illegal regime change wars
    The establishment are terrified to debate the issue
    That is reason enough to support her to force the subject into the debates and make the candidates declare their positions re foreign policy, whether you ultimately support her candidacy. I donated to her campaign yesterday
    Please consider helping her get the conversation started

      Yes, Tulsi Gabbard seems to be the very best choice for the USA in 2020. I just donated $5 to her campaign, with the hope she will reach the 65,000 single donators within the time limit unfairly fixed by DNC.

    I sent a letter to Pres. Putin, and I know it had been opened by the US post. Without telling here what it was about, I will just say there was a very ” interesting “bit” in the news, not long after I mailed the letter.

    Roger Stone has one critical secret that he revealed on Instagram: He knows Richard Nixon’s Martini recipe.

    What ever happened to the action that the Geneva, Switzerland parliament did to give him asylum ? They were looking for evidence of his humanitarian efforts–and would need to know about his help given to Bradley Manning which enabled his release from prison.

    Thank you all for what you do for JA and Wikileaks and people around the world. You all matter to me, as does the very reason you get together every week in Unity4J vigils.

    I wonder if the recent Australian anti-espionage law discussed in this vigil, might have been intended and/or would be used to justify extradition of Assange, and the Australian Government’s failure to protect him.
