Assange expelled and arrested

The rumors last week were correct. Julian Assange has been expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy and arrested by the UK police:
Julian Assange has been arrested by British police today after Ecuador withdrew his political asylum seven years after he was given refuge by the country. The Wikileaks founder was dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in handcuffs by a large group of seven Metropolitan Police officers as stunned supporters and protesters watched on in central London.

He is currently in police custody and is set to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court 'as soon as possible'.

Ecuador's president Lenin Moreno said the decision to withdraw Assange's asylum status came after the 'repeated violations to international conventions and daily-life protocols' and his 'discourteous and aggressive behaviour'. Moreno added that he had asked Britain to guarantee that Assange would not be extradited to a country where he could face torture or the death penalty.

Moments after the arrest, during which Assange held on to a Gore Vidal book on the history of the national security state, WikiLeaks said Ecuador had acted illegally and 'in violation of international law'. Assange, 47, has not left Ecuador's diplomatic soil for seven years amid fears he would be arrested and extradited for publishing thousands of classified military and diplomatic cables.
Obviously Ecuador has the right to expel anyone it wants from its embassy. But why now? And what UK law has Assange violated to justify his arrest?

I guess they think they've neutralized the dead man's switch that Assange has been assumed to have been holding. If he entrusted a few trusted people with an encryption key linked to a torrent file to be released in the event of his arrest and those people have been rounded up? Who knows, we'll find out shortly.

Wikileaks tweet:

"Julian Assange will be taken to Westminster Magistrates court this afternoon. He has been arrested under a US extradition warrant for conspiracy with @xychelsea for publishing classified information revealing war crimes in 2010."

@xychelsea is former US army intelligence analyst and tranny Chelsea Manning, who has been in solitary confinement for 25 days for refusing to answer questions of a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks.

Blogger The Deuce April 11, 2019 8:13 AM  

I'd like to know why Assange should be arrested for committing journalism while the staffs of CNN, NYT, DailyBeast, WaPo etc shouldn't. At least he didn't knowingly and maliciously leak classified misinformation as part of a treasonous defamation campaign for purposes of enacting a coup against duly-elected sitting President.

Blogger Salt April 11, 2019 8:14 AM  

This has been coming for some time and since that time is here it might be curiously to Assange's benefit, if he's extradited to the US, given the spotlight currently on the DOJ, its recent history, and Trump's pursuit of the Swamp. The UK foreign minister says he's no hero. He probably says the same about Saint Brevik.

Ecuador has made some kind of trade deal with the UK.

Otherwise why expel him with UK knowledge. They could have allowed him to at least try to disappear into the London night and have a shot at escape.

But no, they let UK police take him directly from within the embassy. How many pieces of silver were given up for it?

Why IS this guy still so important?

Worst case scenario: the globalist scum finally got Assange

Best case scenario: Assange is now in Trump's DOJ hands, just as it starts investigating the attempted coup

Blogger Damelon Brinn April 11, 2019 8:53 AM  

For what it's worth, the theory of swamp-draining that's been floating around the chans since early 2017 (pre-Q) always included Assange being brought to the US to testify as to where Wikileaks got the DNC files that Crowdstrike said were hacked by Russia, among other things. This doesn't prove that's what's happening, but the timing fits with Mueller finishing his show and the DoJ starting to follow the chain of criminal Democrats he unearthed.

It looks to me like all we know is he's being brought to the US at an important time. We won't know why for a while. It has to be better than staying with the UK spooks who would love to bury anything that might tie into their involvement in trying to oust a US president.

Can we be real here? They are just running him down to build a little moral cover for booting him out. What, he doesn't get up for breakfast on time? Could be he is a pain in the butt. Could be not. The leadership is not going to care. They don't have to deal with him, not directly.

The reason is the Ambassador wants his office space back.

The timing is interesting: Assange extradited to US just as investigation into Russiagate treason heating up.

Just speculation at this point. Could be TGE's team expect to use him against traitors, could TGE's team want that insurance file released. Have to wait and see.

Wasn’t going to post unless he were in US custody, but it’s been mentioned. If I were Trump, which I am not, with the Russia investigation (2nd phase) done, I’d take the AG Barr comment about investigating the investigation, and offer asylum + pardon if he cooperated specifically with that. Trump has more than once spoken disparagingly about Assange, but not going to third and fourth guess. So, second to Salt, assuming he makes it out of the UK and any globalist lackeys there handling him.

Steve Bannon calls countries like the UK and Japan and Saudi Arabia and such 'protectorates' of the US. A better word is colony. We actually have US Airforce occupying so called RAF bases. Our military occupies these countries. So obviously the offenses he is being arrested for don't violate the UK's colonial government's law but they do violate laws of the United States and imperial law supercedes colonial law.

Expelled by orders a natural-born capitalist named Lenin Moreno.

The UK is a brutal police State controlled by the Globalists and completely indifferent to rule of law...Assange will be handed over and tortured by the US.

Indeed. The lawless regime there just managed to kill Brexit until October too (which basically means there will be no Brexit barring some near-miracle). And yet the cucks there think they can vote their way out of this. Time to think again.

Assange now turned over the right-and-honourable badge-gang guild of Cuck Island, the same fearless patriots who arrest those who dare to complain about their daughters (and sons) being enslaved and sold for the pedo-pleasures of the ruling elite and their (((financiers))) in the City of London. I seriously doubt he'll be alive long enough to be turned over to the Rotten Banana Empire's deep-state - unless they really want to do the job themselves. Wonder how they'll off him - a shiv from some ISIS-type in jail perhaps? Unfortunate accident of some kind? "Natural causes"? They'll off him just for the pleasure of rubbing everyone's nose in the fact that they can do so with no consequences.

Blogger Hammerli 280 April 11, 2019 12:09 PM  

I think they'll extradite him to the U.S., then turn him State's Evidence against the Dem seditious conspirators. And he may possibly have some insight into precisely WHY HRC found it necessary to conduct State Department business on not merely a personal e-mail, but a personal server...and then to destroy that server when investigators came calling.

Blogger Fozzy Bear April 11, 2019 12:13 PM  

I’ve read the charges, and they are quite strange. Assange is NOT being charged for successfully conspiring with Manning to obtain leaked information. Instead he is being charged for a failed conspiracy to crack a password, on the grounds that the failed conspiracy would have been in furtherance of the successful conspiracy. The conspiracy he is charged with failed, so there is no damage to national security involved. If Assange can simply show that the failed 2010 password-cracking conspiracy ended before April 2014, then the statute of limitations has expired.

Blogger Gen. Kong April 11, 2019 12:27 PM

There is much truth in this. The real question is whether Assange is falling into the hands of the globohomo deep-state or (maybe) someone who is against the empire but works within its bureaucracy (NSA?). The statements about the DOJ - a thoroughly rotten, criminal and corrupt deep-state operation from AG to janitor if ever there was one - miraculously doing a reversal under a longtime swamp-creature like Barr - strike me as wishful thinking bordering on delusional. Not one former DOJ/FBI criminal who has actually been prosecuted for what amounts to an endless stream of criminal activity. Trump actually managed to fire a couple of the more appalling ones, who are busy working from their Soros-funded sinecures to subvert his presidency even now.

Blogger Balam April 11, 2019 2:59 PM  

I still subscribe to the idea that Assange has been long dead. The summary is that John Kerry brought in a team to break into the embassy to kill him when they cut off his internet on Oct 16, 2016.
Here's the travel record of Kerry arriving in the UK on that fateful day.
https://2009-2017.state.gov/secretary/travel/2016/t30/index.htm

After that date Assange stopped coming to the windows to wave at people. As for the deadman's switch it was pointed out that at that exact same date, Oct 16, the entire US east coast was hit by severe DoS attacks. Now I don't know how these internet deadmans switch timed twitter releases work, but the idea is that they disrupted whatever method Assange planned to go off when he missed his deadman drop.
https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/oct/26/ddos-attack-dyn-mirai-botnet

Then there was that interview he gave a month later that had weird digital artifacts like his collar morphing mid sentence.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApG1XdI-Dd4
And following that there was Hollywood bragging that they could fake footage as much as they want
https://www.theverge.com/tldr/2018/4/17/17247334/ai-fake-news-video-barack-obama-jordan-peele-buzzfeed
And interestingly it was Jordan Peele's company that did it, and right after in 2017 Jordan hit the big time and got directing roles with 'Get Out' and several other movies produced like the recent 'Us'.

I predict that Assange will """die""" very soon, some sort of sudden and violent assassination or something, so that they don't have to keep up the ruse any longer. As to who is doing it, I am going to assume that in his dying breath he'll throw out something to cause a lot of trouble for someone. Hopefully it's not the deep state trying to use a puppet to throw shit at Trump now that Russia-Gate failed, and instead it's another group.

Blogger Roman Daoist April 11, 2019 11:27 PM  

Assange wasn't arrested so much as kicked out (then arrested) becuase this:

"Mr Assange had claimed new asylum terms forcing him to pay for medical bills, laundry and phone calls and to clean up after his pet cat violate his rights and are meant to coerce him into ending his asylum.

Ecuador's government confirmed in March last year that it blocked Mr Assange's internet and mobile phone access because they claim he broke "a written commitment" to not interfere in the country's foreign policies.

Officials also complained that Mr Assange has caused damage by playing football and skateboarding in the embassy building, where he takes up more than a third of the space."


In other words, Assange was being a prick while his LIFE depended on him being polite. Unfortunately he thought his morals were beyond rebuke so that he could do whatever he wanted. And then Ecuador.. rebuked him.

There were reports that Assange misbehaved in a lot of ways. According to the NY Post he smeared feces on the walls - obviously a well-respected form of creative expression found in psychiatric institutions and modern art galleries. Anyway: An article in the New Yorker describes him as an atheist. I just wanted to say that he might have had more self-control and inner peace in his difficult situation if was religious and had access to the stabilizing force of prayer. The Count of Monte Cristo believed in God and survived 14 years in much worse conditions, and I never heard of him smearing feces on the walls of his prison.

Blogger Gregory the Great April 12, 2019 8:43 AM  

Just listened to last night's Darkstream and found it very helpful as it clarified something for me that I sort of knew all along: I and we do not know enough about Assange, his motives, his friends and his enemies to really judge what is going on.
