    Appeals, Plea Deals, & “Wheels!!!”

    Imo, Joe Lauria’s “got” “gold inside of him; and, he’s “got” wheels turning inside him, too.” John Prine, “You Got Gold.”

    “What’s this latest Court’s decision? What is its impact? Is it, “the end of the road,” in terms of an appeal by Julian Assange; and, his lawyers fighting against this extradition?” Brian Becker. “NOT QUITE YET!!!” Joe Lauria.

    “And, it’s been a long December and there’s reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last. I can’t remember all the times i tried to tell myself to hold on to these moments as they pass.” (Counting Crows)

    Months later, “This, Decision,” a REJECTION, of an 11-Month Old Application, by one (1) wholier than whom?!? Judge, Jonathan Swift, says, “NO.” Consequently, Julian Assange faces extradition and state murder while the war criminals, he exposed, “LIVE FREE,” in gated communities w/24/7 $ecurity. Oh, the “Bad News” gets worse, i.e., DJTrump’s “legacy,” LIVES, “Trump provides the daily entertainment; the elites handle the business of looting, exploiting and destroying.” Chris Hedges/Mr. Fish @ “The Useful Idiocy of Donald Trump,” (1.28.18).

    It’s NOT the Kremlin that’s got its bloody, grubby, dirty claws in Julian Assange!!! The former Assassin-N-Chief, DJTrump, his Generals, w/Pompeo & Bolton “GOT” The Espionage Act charges against Julian Assange.

    “NOTHING will fundamentally change.” Joey R. Biden, posing as POTUS masquerading as human.

    Imo, Biden’s-Harris’ Board of Executioners are lick’n their chops. f/jones’n for Assange’s extradition and prosecution.” Hence all the talk about The Espionage Act, Presidential Records Act, the Secret Officials Act & DJTrump monopolizing the “HEADLINES,” on the hour, every hour!” It’s Science Fiction’s “Thing 1 & Thing 2;” IF, only it weren’t true.

    “Color, IT ORANGE!!!” Biden’s-Harris’ reign of terror, i.e., “The oligarchic and military types have a handmaiden in the Oval Office, and [he/she] won’t be ousted as long as [he/she] serves their interests.”

    JANUARY 28, TWENTY-EIGHTEEN (2018): ”The Useful Idiocy of Donald Trump,” (CHRIS HEDGES/MR. FISH) hxxps://

    The beginning of the “BAD NEWS” gone f/wrong!!! AND, delivered, exceptionally well, by Brian Becker and Joe Lauria. An outstanding conversation!!! TY. “KEEP IT LIT.”

      …p.s., “All around the world, France & Scandinavia, candlelight vigils, protesting” [The Execution of Julian Assange].

      “Every generation, blames the one before.” A best practice, read, read, read!, i.e., “Assange committed empire’s greatest sin. He exposed it as a criminal enterprise. He documented its lies, callous disregard for human life, rampant corruption and innumerable war crimes.

      Republican or Democrat. Conservative or Labour. Trump or Biden. It does not matter. The goons who oversee the empire sing from the same Satanic songbook. Empires always kill those who inflict deep and serious wounds.” DECEMBER 14, 2021, “The Execution of Julian Assange,” CHRIS HEDGES/MR. FISH @ hxxps://

      Memo To: Biden-Harris,

      Drop A Beat! “Step Up,”1) ABORT the Extradition. DROP the Case, USG vs. Julian Assange & WikiLeaks; 2) Keep the Ayatollahs aka The SCOTUS outta “This, Decision.” 3) Biden-Harris, “Declare this Case is f/DISMISSED!!!”

      Going forward, JULIAN ASSANGE is to be honored, revered, free of the tentacles that kept him prisoner, for too many years!!! “This Decision” means “best practices” rock, i.e., “The best favour is to RESCUE the one in most need,” JULIAN ASSANGE. “WE” the USG/USA are sincerely sorry for squandering your life.” “KEEP IT LIT!!!”

    Waging wars abroad inevitably leads to increased repression at home. …….. the noose is tightening around dissent and the free flow of information. There’s a “censorship industrial complex” steadily growing to help implement gov’t.’s efforts to suppress those voices. Online. Mainstream media. Academia. ——-> all are patrolled for perspectives that run counter to US imperial precepts.

    Assange is being persecuted for embarrassing the empire by exposing war crimes. ……The empire wants its show trial, period. Without it, the full example of what can happen to journos worldwide will not have been made.

    This case shoulda’ been thrown out years ago., Assange’s rights have been violated every step of the way. From the illegal spying of all Assange’s jail visits/correspondence by a Spanish security co. —–to—– the Icelandic pedo who lied about ‘hacking” for Assange in order to gain a reduced sentence——to——-the blaring conflict of interests by the British judge (Baraister?). …..and MORE.

    The whole premise of Assange’s arrest in BS!! ……. it is NOT illegal to publish material – classified, or otherwise – that was leaked to you. ….it IS illegal to publish classified material YOU. yourself stole or solicited…….. I’d guess most folks don’t know that. ……. laws to ‘correct” that will be up for parliamentary action soon in England. ….eventually, it’ll come to pass in the US, too.

    In the US, both factions of the D/R dictatorship want to persecute Assange, the law be damned. Fat Mike Pompeo (CIA Mafia Boss for the Trump regime) wanted to put out a hit on Assange. HRC wanted him murdered as well, if I recall. The Biden regime continues the same bipartisan policies. So, it doesn’t matter who we “vote” for in the US, policy remains the same. Voter preferences have no bearing on policy.

    In the UK, the major parties will do nothing to stop the abuse of power and abuse of the law in extraditing Julian Assange. The case of Juian Assange has exposed the deep-seated institutional corruption of the US and UK legal/political systems. We must collectively demand justice, not expect an election to change anything.

    I find it impossible to vote for, or support Biden and Garland’s DoJ unless they DROP this case against Assange.

      You should find it impossible to vote for them because they are imperialist war criminals out for Julian’s blood because he revealed their criminality. Are you seriously saying that, apart from Julian Assange, you would vote for these monsters?
