As was obvious, the decision to not extradite Julian Assange was just the British government buying time.
There is no way this guy gets away.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was denied bail on Wednesday by a British judge who said there was a risk he might flee justice while the United States tries again to secure his extradition.
Assange, who has spent more than eight years either holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London or in jail, had asked to be freed on bail after the court ruled on Monday that he should not be extradited because he would be at risk of suicide.
“I am satisfied that there are substantial grounds for believing that if Mr Assange is released today he would fail to surrender to court to face the appeal proceedings,” Judge Vanessa Baraitser told London’s Westminster Magistrates Court.
“As far as Mr Assange is concerned this case has not yet been won … the outcome of this appeal is not yet known.”
The U.S. Department of Justice says it will continue to seek Assange’s extradition to face 18 criminal charges of breaking an espionage law and conspiring to hack government computers.
Assange’s partner, Stella Moris, said the judge’s decision to deny him bail was a huge disappointment and urged the United States to pardon him.
Apparently, the Assange hoax is too big for Donald Trump to touch, or I think he would have already pardoned him.
It’s very important for the elite to make an example, and make it clear to everyone that yes, you will go to prison for doing journalism, if that journalism gets in the way of the elite agenda.
The most incredible thing about all of this is that the journalists themselves are not standing up for Assange. These people will always close ranks. I’ve had them close ranks against me repeatedly.
What that shows is that they don’t consider Assange to be a “journalist” in the way they are “journalists.” Which simply proves my assertion that the word “journalist” as it is currently used has no real meaning other than “establishment mouthpiece.”
