WATCH: Biden Missing, But Assange Sydney Rally Goes On

Joe Biden was due in Sydney Wednesday where he’s facing increased pressure to let Julian Assange go. Biden cancelled the trip but a rally in Hyde Park sent him the message anyway.

    Forget the politicians. They won’t go against those who rule from the shadows. It’s the Western oligarchy that must be destroyed if Julian is to walk free. They are the ones who order governments to commit war crimes and it is they who own the media. It is they who demand Julian be held under illegal circumstances. The Western court system has become a cruel joke. There is no justice here. No rule of law. We must expose this fraud of a system so those living within it finally see how grossly they have been deceived. This can only happen through class solidarity. Julian Assange is a hero of the people. The people who have not lost their humanity.

    I have been a regular reader and commentator, a loyal follower of Consortium News where I have always enjoyed the readings of investigative works of its late founder Robert Parry. For more than a decade. I have used Consortium news as reliable source for my writings in International relations and geopolitics, Consortium News allowed the expression of wide range of opinions without censure giving free rein to the creativity,to the diversity of points of vue and personal reflections. Consortium news continued on the path of his founder Robert Parry and saved fortunetely his powerful spirit.

    I wish Julian the best, and I consider him a hero of humanity, but …

    Joe Biden just launched terror attacks at Russian nuclear power plants. He tried to blow up the power poles leading to the plants, which potentially could cause a Fukashima-type situation. Joe Biden has also launched a series of attacks with the aim of assassinating journalists that Joe does not like. Joe has at least three journalist scalps on his belt. Shireen Abu Akleh, Darya Dugina, and Vladlin Tartarsky come quickly to mind.

    I just don’t think that asking Joe Biden nicely for Julian’s release is going to get very far.

    Note: For the record, Joe Biden is good at plausible deniability, so he would deny that he has done the above. But they have all happened in the American Sphere of Influence (which contains most of the countries that are ‘dangerous’ to journalists), by nations that rely on Joe for big piles of money, and Joe is the Leader of the Free World. So, I put an “Joe Biden did that” sticker on what happens in the ‘Free World’.

    Wikileaks has the goods on Biden, Obama, Hillary and the DNC. He will never help Julian get out of prison.
