    03:57 Taylor Hudak: “His casefiles have been confiscated at the end of the day.”

    That means the massive violation of Attorney Client Privilege/Legal Professional Privilege continues to this day.

    And that alone is enough to throw the case out of court.

    That is video and audio recording of Julian Assange’s attorney Geoffrey Robertson of the Dougthy Street lawfirm, recorded by CIA cutout UC Global or Under Cover Global, who themselves have been on trial in Spain. Morales of UC Global is called by the defense to testify in May.

    There has been massive violation of Attorney Client Privilege in this case, and anyone who ignores that is willing to take a wrecking ball to the law, just to get Julian Assange.

    If we think of “NEWS” sources as merely advertising or promotion agencies (which they are), then it is easy to see what each one advertises and promotes. NONE “report” what doesn’t suit them. I greatly appreciate Joe’s attempt to point out this absence of “reporting”, and hope that we can all try to avoid it being applied to ourselves.

    There is a very slim line between “selective reporting” and advertising or promotion.

    Attacking Julian Assange and Wikileaks, the actions of corporate media with the full force of British and U.S. government propaganda machine at work, that alone is a crime against the facts, let alone a fair trial. This is the turning point many have feared. WE have to admit that Julian Assange’s life is on the line. This begs the question are we going to stand by and watch his murder by imprisonment/torture or execution? His blood is on the hands of those who do nothing. We must call our government out for its lies and amoral stance with respect to Julian and a free press. To those who’s vision of free press is to enable the murder a journalist for publishing truths is my visions enemy. Call your politicians tell them your outraged and if they won’t listen, yell at them.

    I have also wondered why Assange is not allowed to communicate with his lawyers and is confined to a plastic cage. Do they think this will cripple the defense to the point that the case against Assange becomes easier? Perhaps this is part of a psychological torture regime against Assange to mentally break him.

    Could the silence of the British press be explained by a D Notice?

    There was recently the case in England of a couple who had their 11 year adopted son assassinated in India for insurance money. They are wanted for murder in India, however, the UK government said they couldn’t be extradited because they would face life in prison.

    This would not be the first time hidden forces derailed the news publishing business in London. In 1917 London Times reporter Robert Wilton was fired because he wouldn’t alter his reports on the Bolshevik takeover of the revolution in Russia. In that particular case his reporting displeased some in “Zionist circles”. That incident has been researched and described in some detail by renowned London Times WWII reporter Douglas Reed.
