    “Ordinary people are as common as the grass; BUT, good people are dearer than the eye!”

    Concluding, there really are Angels on Earth!!! (See photo, above); including, ‘Australia’s Six;’ &, the ‘Bring Assange Home’ Delegation.” The Washington Post publishes, The LETTER, signed by 64 Australian Senators & Members of Parliament, “The prosecution & incarceration of the Australian citizen, Julian Assange, must end.” Including the“persecution” of Julian Assange!!!”

    “When I get older, losing my hair. Many years from now. Will you still be sending me a valentine, Birthday greetings, bottle of wine? Will ya still need me? Will ya still feed me? When I’m 64?” (The Beatles)

    AND, if “they,” the muckity-mucks, say the word, “JULIAN ASSANGE, LIVES, FREE!” The universal “ASK:” Stop, the Persecution. Stop, the Extradition. Stop, the Prosecution.” TY!!!

    Hearing that Congress, $tate & the DoJ, were “gentlemen,” is mind-blowing. D.C.’s “Open Door Policy,” is deceiving. After all, “a body of men [and women] who hold themselves accountable to nobody, ought not be trusted by anybody.” Thomas Paine.

    Seriously, imo, “we’re” @ “Democracy is two wolves and a [sheep] lamb voting on what to have for lunch;” Imo, NEEDED: Statesmen, Diplomats working independent of Biden’s-Harris’ WH, Congress, $tate, DoJ, are needed in the war zone, fka “the home of the brave and the land of the free,”

    Remember, Congress, $tate, DoJ are recycled Clintonistas, Bushies, & OhBamasbat-$h*t crazyBots. They feign compassion. They’ve mastered lying, spying, covering, camouflaging, chloroforming war crimes & crimes against humanity. PLEASE, Remind them, “PERSECUTION is A CRIME!” Their truth is one big f/lie! I digress….

    I am thankful Congress, $tate, Dept of “Injustices” Justice Dept., met Australia’s SIX (6) w/“Open Arms.” Imo, feigning an intent to “Do the Right Thing!!!” After all, Thirteen (13) YEARS later, Julian Assange remains locked up, 24/7, on trumped-up charges!!! AND, they “ASK,” wait until the End of October’s Meet & Greet, Biden hosts Albanese. W/o a doubt, everyone will be watching, the Grim Reaper starring in “A Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue.”

    Reality knocks! Consortium News, is “GOLDEN!” A world renowned, independent, investigative news org, exemplifying, “The power of democracy;” And, INDEED, agreed, “the greatest journalists/heroes” Joe Lauria & Cathy Vogan, ROCK, words, deeds, action, 100%!!!

    “Rescuing, Julian Assange.” 200 Consecutive WEEKS aka 4 YEARS!!! TY! Onward & Upwards! Keep the Pressure On ‘Em! “Keep It Lit.” TY. Ciao.

    So many lies, America—so many lies in such a young nation. This treatment of Julian Assange is awful.
    Historically awful though, if one thinks about all the work that the Englishman Tom Paine also did for America. Sadly he was used and tossed away by the Americans .

    Of course we are all still waiting for those running America ( into the ground, it seems.) but hoping that those special people like Julian Assange and Tom Paine will continue to be honored and remembered long after America has fallen victim to its own sad beliefs. HONESTY truly is the best policy for all nations,

    It’s about time the British Government grew a pair and returned Julian Assange back to his home in Oz. Give the finger to the USA and stop being their puppets . . .

    WASHINGTON, Jan 18, 2011 (Reuters) – Internal U.S. government reviews have determined that a mass leak of diplomatic cables caused only limited damage to U.S. interests abroad, despite the Obama administration’s public statements to the contrary.

    A congressional official briefed on the reviews said the administration felt compelled to say publicly that the revelations had seriously damaged American interests in order to bolster legal efforts to shut down the WikiLeaks website and bring charges against the leakers.

    It’s great to see motivated supporters who keep on doing everything they can to free Julian and defend our right to information.
    In Brussels, we (Free Assange.Belgium Committee) do the same every Monday sinc April 2019, and tomorrow, September 25th, will be our 234th gathering
