    When exposing crimes becomes a crime

    Yet nobody ever faced trial for the crimes he helped expose. Criminality is rife in Washington.

    He was a cog in the Russian machine that facilitated the election of Donald tRump. I call for the death penalty.

    Literally no lies have been released by Wikileaks. The only reason this arrest was possible is because Ecuador sold him out

    Should be pardoned for the majority of it. Maybe not the Bradley Manning part...if what's been said about that is true...but the media doesn't know truth anymore, they know spin, bias, and hate.

    Nella storia di Assange, che non conosco nei dettagli, la cosa più inquietante è che lo hanno arrestato nell'AMBASCIATA dell'Ecuador (a quale prezzo?)

    If what he has done is on the level of spying and espionage against countries then he deserves to be tried in a court of law. He conspired with Russia to interfere in our election.

    We are being bombarded with this news about Julian Assange by the mass media and it's not too hard to see that it's a theater. If he really was antiestablishment, the controlled opposition wouldn't have made a hero out of him. Everything is fake inside the sphere of our reality. There is no escaping it unless the sphere would implode somehow. Nothing is believable anymore. Some people will tell a little bit of truth, talk decent, show some respect for credibility and so on. But, that's more dangerous because it's a veil. It's hard to see who they really are.
