Julian Assange has some tricks up his sleeve. What a mouth! The Australian really does fit the part of the role of the mysterious computer genius that came from afar. Imagine if he resembled Raymond Bachand; I am convinced, for reasons difficult to explain, that he wouldn’t be as hated. It’s hard — very hard — to hate the branch manager of Canada Post in Malartic. It is easier to hate the hyper-photogenic DJ…
Assange is enigmatic, blond and pathologically incapable of smiling from behind his tinted glasses. We would imagine him to appear alongside James Bond in the role of…of…
Incidentally, as the hero or the villain?

Dear Pres. Obama and Congress:
I want to publicly state my outrage at our government’s public assualt and obvious desire to punish Julian Assange, the spokesperson for WikiLeaks.
Mr. President: You promised a lot of things when you were campaigning, and I believed you to the point that, for the first time in my voting life, I contributed to a campaign fund. It wasn’t much, as we are one of the statistics that have fallen below the poverty line in this Depression (I refuse to call it a recession, as I huddle here in a cold house that I will soon lose).
In Naples, Italy, artist Gennaro Di Virgilio added Julian Assange to his annual Christmas Nativity scene, declaring him "Man of The Year".

The Toad Versus The New York Times
Joe Lieberman, Senate’s resident evil toad and arch nemesis to internet freedom fighters everywhere, has urged the Justice Department to hang the New York Times for the committing the crime of ethical journalism.

Anna Ardin, one of the two complainants in the rape and sexual assault case against WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange, has left Sweden, and may have ceased actively co-operating with the Swedish prosecution service and her own lawyer, sources in Sweden told Crikey today.
The move comes amid a growing campaign by leading Western feminists to question the investigation, and renewed confusion as to whether Sweden has actually issued charges against Assange. Naomi Klein, Naomi Wolf, and the European group Women Against Rape, have all made statements questioning the nature and purpose of the prosecution.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has won an award from The Economist magazine, a financial publication controlled by the Rothschild banking family, and he has also featured on an “Economist” video clip, raising questions about conflicts of interest. Assange predicted a bank run could be triggered by bank data leaks but he does not mention that this would result in the robbery of millions of people because of the way the fractional reserve banking system works, and profit the banks.
Is a false flag bank run hyped by the banker’s media and carried out by a Rothschild operative being planned to rob millions and to implement emergency laws?

SITE OF REPUTED MOSSAD ATTACK IN TEHRAN
An attack on American forces in the Persian Gulf is being planned. Wikileaks is an integral part of the operation. Step one was the current “diplomatic” Wikileak. Step two, the brazen “Mossad style”murders in Iran.
Wikileaks couldn’t be more involved if they built the bombs or fired the missiles themselves.

Wikileaks offered its first release since the controversial distribution of documents related to the United States effort in Afghanistan.
The current leak was posted to their web site on August 25. It is titled CIA Red Cell Memorandum on United States “exporting terrorism”, 2 Feb 2010.
The leak describes Red Cell as a CIA unit created by the Director to develop “out-of-the-box” analysis offering “alternative viewpoints” on key intelligence issues.
This document doesn’t disappoint in being out-of-the-box.
CIA Perception Management – How the World Sees the United States
CIA Red Cell starts out by stating, “This report examines the implications of what it would mean for the US to be seen increasingly as an incubator and exporter of terrorism.” Don’t hold your breath. There’s nothing there about the School of the Americas, the shock and awe invasion of Iraq and the carnage that entailed, or 300 dead Panamanians and United States soldiers as a result of the 1981 manhunt for General Manuel Noriega, a former US asset.

Sign of the Times
Israel Shamir recently published his opinion on the Wikileaks exposé and in the process took issue with those who had dismissed the leaks as a distraction. While I wasn’t named by Shamir as one of the dissenters, I had waxed skeptical in a recent Sott.net editorial on the topic.
I sent the following letter to Shamir:
I have these moments from time to time where I am dumbstruck by the absurdity of human behavior, usually my own. But these moments are usually
brief, they pass on and I am always confident that another moment will soon arrive.
Listening to the news on satellite radio this afternoon, I had a moment where “dumb struck” didn’t quite hit the mark. Neither did idiotic. It was an overwhelming feeling that my home planet, Earth I believe it was called, had been taken over by aliens. Aliens whose chief concern seemed to be keeping the remaining residents of the planet so totally distracted and confused that the vast majority of them would remain stunned while these aliens completed their takeover.
Who were/are these aliens and what was their purpose? Continue reading
