    I can’t seem to find any details about the tour stop in Los Angeles on June 28-29. I would love to attend if I can find out any info about it.

    Save Assange or submit to an Orwellian dictatorship run by the rich and powerful that will make China’s autocracy look like a kids tea party.

    Thank you ConsortiumNews for almost exclusively leading media support for this effort to promote the release and freedom of Julian Assange; Robert Parry must be looking down with great pleasure and pride that his legacy lives on.

    SPREAD THE WORD in every site’s comment section you visit by copy and pasting the URL of this article about:
    “Julian Assange’s father and brother, John and Gabriel Shipton, on their nationwide #HomeRun4Julian tour to advocate for the release of Assange.”
    We all need Julian back in the arms of his family and then, hopefully, returning to the helm of Wikileaks.
    As Usual,

    Truman was correct when he expressed regret over the establishment of the CIA. When I first read about the events leading up to Assange’s arrest, I thought, CIA planned and executed.

      It may be interesting to question rather Truman did actually regret his association with the Dulles brothers, John Foster & Allen, or was his “expressed regret” a convenient political afterthought; similar to Ike’s more popularized parting sincere concerns about the impending dangers of “the military-industrial complex”.
      Be aware of the possibility of fabricated legacies that can convert history’s deadliest corruptions into benevolent and heroic actions.
      As Usual,
