why isn't anyone arresting the judge for flagrant violations of the law and precedent? I keep seeing people petitioning the government to let him free .... for 10 years now....I mean, at what point do you look at yourself and say what you're doing is not working?

Lets be frank , you have to march on the jail and release him yourself. And then you have to march on the court and arrest the judge and then go down that list of people that have protected this sham trial.

There is no other option.

look, there is no law, no legal system, if the very people that are suppose to protect it and take it with high regard throw it aside as they see fit.

Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden and Julian Assange’s
heroic actions have alerted the working class to illegal and war crimes by the ruling elites state apparatus.
Unable to get Manning to change her testimony Assange has been systematically tortured, denied necessary health care and exposed to coronavirus infection.

He was meant to be dead by now.

Hence, today they are forced to resort to an illegal trail, conducted in the manner of tinpot dictatorships, and in doing so they have created widespread opposition across the globe Including amongst some of the highest legal bodies.
Today it a secret show trail.
They intend to kill Julian Assange one way or another for telling the truth.

Matt DeHart

Wouldn't it be Orwellian if Julian Assange and Matt DeHart were fake stories (propaganda) that were invented and broadcast in order to scare an entire generation of hackers into NOT revealing what they can find.

"Do this, and you will end up like Assange and Hart!" says left-wing Goldstein?

But didn't Assange expose *real war crimes*, as in the Collateral Murder video?

Whether any of the crimes he revealed were true or not doesn't change the fact that these two stories (and many others) are in mainstream media, rather than hidden in the background.

Usually, when the police kills an innocent person for political reasons, this is kept secret. But the Assange and Hart cases are examples of very public repression of truth-tellers.

Public crucifixions are a great way to get slaves to shut their mouths and keep working.

Wikileaks helped end secret U.S. killings, Assange extradition hearing is told

Barely. Even here the MSM when it does the little reporting on this case, is only doing so because the trial is on and they're kind of forced to speak about it. Otherwise, this attack on press freedom has been ignored most of the time.

But yes, this case is all about a public crucifixion of Julian Assange to scare other whistleblowers/publishers who report the crimes of Empire. The powers that be have made it very clear they don't give a shit about law, throughout.

I believe Julian Assange should undergo a fair trial in the U.S.A.

Yesterday was another day of shambles at the court. The judge got pissed off at a witness drinking coffee when giving testimony over video link. Some news footage - someone said of CNN - bizarrely cut into the broadcast in the court and the judge walked out. There were audio issues throughout and journalists covering the case have complained about these repeatedly. The main prosecution guy Lewis got repeatedly angry at the witnesses which suggests his team aren't doing so well on this entire nonsense of a case. Yesterday they tried to claim that Assange could possibly be given the light sentence of 20 years instead of 175 and the Wikileaks editor-in-chief said that's completely unacceptable; if Assange is extradited he will be tortured to death.

It won't be fair. And the whole case is a violation of the first amendment. If Julian Assange is prosecuted, this will be the first time in history that a publisher/journalist is for publishing/reporting.

You're correct here, and I was incorrect.

MSM doesn't do much reporting about Assange. But alternative media - the one that targets the types of people who think about civil liberties and the arc of history - is thoroughly covering the horrors that Julian Assange is being put through.

So if media wants to terrorize the exact types of people who can confront its lying narratives, it is doing so in the correct media to reach its targeted audience.

London bus drivers resolve to fight for Assange’s freedom

We call on all workers everywhere to come to Assange’s defence. At stake are basic democratic rights, including free speech and freedom of the press. The defence of Assange is the spearhead of the struggle against militarism and war abroad, and the mobilisation of the state against the working class at home.

We demand a halt to extradition proceedings, the dropping of all charges and Assange’s immediate release from prison. Julian Assange must be reunited with his family and be afforded full compensation for the suffering he has endured as a result of the decade-long state vendetta against him.
