    In light of this airing, I wonder if anything might change regarding the prohibition on speaking the truth about Assange.

    Meanwhile, I continue to be astonished that the half-wits that make up the Democratic Party in the US are proving just as corrupt and self-sabotaging as the mostly pathetic Labour MPs in Britain. With Clinton and Harris backing an absolute nincompoop, Trump has no competition. All these so-called Democrats must stand to lose something big with Sanders as a candidate?

    A tale of Tertulias and Tatlidil

    ‘Tatlidil, which means “sweet talk” in Turkish, was established in 2011 by then prime minister David Cameron and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.’

    ‘American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a highly secretive meeting organised by the most influential neoconservative think tank in Washington populated by senior US military and intelligence officials.’

    ‘Declassified recently revealed how the AEI, which has a strongly anti-Assange position, has been courting British ministers for years.’

    ‘The Foreign Office has long taken a strong anti-Assange position, rejecting UN findings in his favour, refusing to recognise the political asylum given to him by Ecuador, and even labelling Assange a “miserable little worm”.’

    ‘Liz Truss, then Justice Secretary, “advised” the Queen to appointLady Arbuthnot in October 2016.’ (As Chief Magistrate in Westminster)

    ‘Declassified has discovered that the addresses given by Lord Arbuthnot and other parliamentarians for Tertulias and Tatlidil have been the same — despite no obvious connection between the two organisations other than the UK Foreign Office.’

    ———

    The above is derived from the new setup ‘Declassified UK’ written by Matt Kennard and Mark Curtice – i don’t know much about it’s authenticity, being early days – but it is one of a stunning set of stories from their new stable which I have been perusing here

    (The cast of characters takes in the above summary stars many of the ‘dogs of whores’ of our establishment from Straw to Scarlett to Randy Andy to Truss AND the Arbuthnots … and it shows that it is almost a PERSONAL animosity against Julian Assange by the British and American state)

    Chelsea Manning case: Judge orders release from prison

    A US judge has ordered the immediate release of former army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning from prison.

    Manning had been remanded for refusing to testify in an inquiry into Wikileaks and had been in detention in Virginia since last May.

    She was scheduled to appear in court on Friday, but the judge ruled that it was no longer necessary for her to testify.

    Manning was found guilty in 2013 of charges including espionage for leaking secret military files to Wikileaks.

    She accrued more than $250,000 (£198,000) in fines for refusing to co-operate with the inquiry. Her legal team had asked for these to be vacated, but the judge said they must be paid in full.

    I very much hope that Julians defense team will ask for the suspension/cancellation of the extradition request as there is no chance of getting any corroboratory evidence. The Wikileaks judgement is also another reason to stop this hounding of JA. The UK Government should not wait until May’s next hearing it should stop wasting taxpayers money now and set him free.

    If they are not doing this, they will be the only one’s responsible for his death in Jail, should they persist with carrying on defending their war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq.
    There is no better moment than now,imho.

    Supporters Crowdfund Manning’s Quarter Million Fine in a Blink

    In the likely event that you need some news to give you a bit of faith in humanity today, you should know that supporters of whistleblower Chelsea Manning have raised over a quarter million dollars to pay the cruel, draconian fine that was heaped upon her for her principled stand against testifying at corrupt secret grand jury proceedings.

    In just two days after Manning was released from prison, more than six thousand donors banded together to pay off the $258,000 fine assigned at a thousand dollars a day by a federal judge on top of imprisonment to coerce her to testify. Fundraising was so enthusiastic that it had overshot the goal and reached $267,002 before the GoFundMe was closed.

    Those of us who support Manning have been looking at this more as a fine on us than on her, because of course we were never going to let a heroic whistleblower spend the rest of her life under crushing debt. The fact that the money came together so quickly and easily, though, says a lot about the beauty of humans in my opinion.
