‘One Less Traitor’: Zelensky Oversees Campaign of Assassination, Kidnapping and Torture of Political Opposition

Tuesday, 18 April 2022 — Strategic Culture Foundation

While claiming to defend democracy, Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky has outlawed his opposition, ordered his rivals’ arrest, and presided over the disappearance and assassination of dissidents across the country.

By Max BLUMENTHAL, Esha KRISHNASWAMY

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has framed his country’s war against Russia as a battle for democracy itself. In a carefully choreographed address to US Congress on March 16, Zelensky stated, “Right now, the destiny of our country is being decided. The destiny of our people, whether Ukrainians will be free, whether they will be able to preserve their democracy.”

A Ukrainian Neo-Nazi Atrocity!

Monday, 28 March 2022 — Telegram

Update: The perpetrator has been identified. He is Ruslan Mironyuk, a resident and native of the Vinnytsia Region, Ukraine. The incident reportedly took place in Kharkiv. The victim was another Russian prisoner of war, Pyotr ******, who had previously been tortured by the Ukrainian armed forces.

The video itself was filmed and distributed by the Nazis as an alleged example of how they deal with those who support Russia. The POW was disguised in civilian clothes before his execution. Ukrainian Nazis have surpassed ISIS in their atrocities. ISIS members, when carrying out executions on camera, usually drugged their victims.

The book of hours on Julian Assange is now being written. But the scribes are far from original. Repeated rituals of administrative hearings that have no common purpose other than to string things out before the axe are being enacted.

Overview: USA vs Assange

29 July 2020 — Defend Wikileaks

Julian Assange faces extradition from the United Kingdom to the United States, where he has been indicted on 18 counts for obtaining, possessing, conspiring to publish and for publishing classified information. The indictment contains 17 counts under the Espionage Act of 1917 and one charge of conspiring with a source to violate the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which uses Espionage Act language. This is the first ever use of such charges for the publication of truthful information in the public interest, and it represents a gravely dangerous attempt to criminalise journalist-source communications and the publication by journalists of classified information.

Five questions for new Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer about his UK and US national security establishment links

5 June 2020 — Grayzone

The public deserves answers about the UK’s new opposition leader and his relationship with the British national security establishment, including the MI5 and the Times newspaper, his former role in the Julian Assange case and his membership in the intelligence-linked Trilateral Commission.

Doctors of Assange Reveals Reports on Mistreatment Have Intensified The Abuse

Doctors 4 Assange, who are the many doctors who sent a letter to the Home Secretary in Great Britain, tweeted a concerning statement today.  According to them, Craig Murray’s reporting on the trial of Assange only escalated his mistreatment rather than helping to aid Assange.

Julian Assange Hearing – Your Help Wanted

6 March, 2020 — Craig Murray

Here is a list of things you can do to help. Everyone can do at least one of these.

1) Put 18 May firmly in your diary. The hearing stands adjourned until 18 May. Turn up on 18 May and join the protests there all day – show the world this is a political trial, and we know it. Woolwich Crown Court is walking distance from Plumstead Railway Station in South East London. If you feel able to do so, bring your tent and join the Free Assange Village that sets up on the grass banks around the court – there is loads of available space. But if you can just turn up for the day, that is just as valuable. Protests will roll on every day throughout the hearing which will continue for a minimum of three weeks.

Assange: Empire of Surveillance and Imperialism

29 February 2020 — Resumen

By Katu Arkonada

The trial against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a perfect metaphor for how United States imperialism operates in the world today.The Armed Forces, the Department of State, and the CIA caused thousands of deaths in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya or Syria, but it’s the person who showed to the world those crimes who is going to be sentenced to 175 years in prison for 18 crimes (17 of them described in the Espionage Act of 1917, passed on the occasion of War World I).

Humanity Is Making A Very Important Decision When It Comes To Assange

2 March 2020 — Caitlin Johnson

The propagandists have all gone dead silent on the WikiLeaks founder they previously were smearing with relentless viciousness, because they no longer have an argument. The facts are all in, and yes, it turns out the US government is certainly and undeniably working to exploit legal loopholes to imprison a journalist for exposing its war crimes. That is happening, and there is no justifying it.

Assange ‘Show’ Hearing Comes to an End, Along with Western Democracy

2 March 2020 — InfoBrics

Johanna Ross, journalist based in Edinburgh, Scotland

Julian Assange’s extradition hearing came to an end on Thursday; a trial which, according to his supporters bears all the hallmarks of a ‘show trial’ straight from the pages of a Kafka novel. The former Wikileaks editor, has already served around 13 years in arbitrary detention, despite not having been charged with any crime.  If there was ever any confirmation of the helplessness of the individual in relation to the state, this was it. And if there was ever any demonstration needed that the West is moving away from democracy towards authoritarianism, this was it.

Can a French Touch Pierce a Neo-Orwellian Farce?

29 February 2020 — Consortium News

By Pepe Escobar

It’s quite fitting that the – imperially pre-determined – judicial fate of Julian Assange is being played out in Britain, the home of George Orwell.

As chronicled by the painful, searing reports of Ambassador Craig Murray, what’s taking place in Woolwich Crown Court is a sub-Orwellian farce with Conradian overtones: the horror…the horror…, remixed for the Raging Twenties. The heart of our moral darkness is not in the Congo: it’s in a dingy courtroom attached to a prison, presided by a lowly imperial lackey.

To Be Assanged: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

29 February 2020 — Caitlin Johnson

by Caitlin Johnstone

Assange, verb. Use: To be assanged. 
Meaning: when the nationless alliance of elites imprison a dissident by using their power to manipulate vagaries in the laws of their respective nations. 
Eg “I have information on war crimes that I should leak but I don’t want to be assanged.”

Your Man in the Public Gallery – Assange Hearing Day Four

Please try this experiment for me.

Try asking this question out loud, in a tone of intellectual interest and engagement: “Are you suggesting that the two have the same effect?”.

Now try asking this question out loud, in a tone of hostility and incredulity bordering on sarcasm: “Are you suggesting that the two have the same effect?”.

Julian Assange, the Glass Cage and Heaven in a Rage: Day Four of Extradition Hearings

28 February 2020 — Counter Currents

Thursday, February 27, Woolwich Crown Court.  The first round of extradition hearings regarding Julian Assange’s case concluded a day early, to recommence on May 18th.  It ended on an insensible note very much in keeping with the woolly-headed reasoning of Judge Vanessa Baraitser, who is of the view that a WikiLeaks publisher in a cage does not put all heaven in a rage.  On Wednesday, Assange’s defence had requested whether he would be able to leave the confines of his glass cage and join his legal team. As Assange had explained in response to his nodding off during proceedings, “I cannot meaningfully communicate with my lawyers.”  There was little point in “asking” if he could follow proceedings without enabling his participation.

Julian Assange: British justice in the dock

Assange: British justice in the dock

By TruePublica Editor: Anyone following this case will know that justice is not the intention of the British state when it comes to Julian Assange and his impending extradition to the United States. What we are witnessing, if you can call it that – is the operation of a kangaroo court. This type of court is a court that ignores recognised standards of law or justice. The defendants in such courts are often denied access to legal representation and, in some cases, proper defence whilst prejudicial bias is a constant. Such proceedings are often held to give the appearance of a fair and just trial, even though the verdict is already decided before the trial actually begins. These are the conditions of one of the most important court cases currently underway in British legal history.
