Assange Arrested, Brexit Squashed – Just Another Day in the Empire – Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Posted by M. C. on April 16, 2019

And down goes Julian Assange, right beside Brexit. If there was ever any doubt that The Powers That Be are unrelenting in their cruelty just look at the 24 hours starting on Wednesday.

First Theresa “The Snake Oil Lady” May kicks 17.4 million voters into the weeds.

And then she oversees the arrest and judging of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

The timing of this is important beyond dovetailing it with her Brexit betrayal. They had to go after Assange now, because Theresa May’s time in office is ending.

A Jeremy Corbyn-led government would not grant the U.S. it’s prize.

Corbyn, for all of his faults, would be a breath of fresh air in the unraveling of the ‘special relationship’ between the U.S. and U.K. in foreign policy for as long as he lasted in office.

Still think Theresa works for anyone other than her owners?…

But nothing surprises me about the evil of Theresa May anymore.

It seems May isn’t just content to destroy the Tories, but also the British government itself. Her goal? To ensure it is incapable of fighting for Brexit in the future.

The Indictment Setup

In my reaction to this story I wrote over at Money and Markets:

… the initial response {to Assange’s arrest}f rom the Tories has been nothing short of shameful. The same people in May’s cabinet that helped her betray the British voters are crowing about law and order and protecting government secrets, which will only undercut public support for them even further.
So an angry electorate already frustrated, angry and ashamed at how the May government and parliament have surrendered to the EU on Brexit are now coping with their government handing over Assange at the behest of the U.S.

Does anyone think this will end well?

Assange was indicted in secret by the U.S. on March 6th 2018. Read it below:

It implies that Chelsea Manning rolled over on him by the indictment characterizing their relationship as ‘an arrangement’ and an ‘agreement to assist.’ It creates the narrative that they worked together to knowingly attempt to hack secure government computers.

As Caitlin Johnstone points out, however, this is old news that even that scumbag Eric Holder wouldn’t prosecute Assange for in 2010.

The facts of the case have not changed, the information hasn’t changed, only the narrative has changed. In 2010 the United States opened a secret grand jury in Virginia to investigate whether Assange and WikiLeaks could be prosecuted for the publication of the Manning leaks, and then-Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the Obama administration was conducting “an active, ongoing criminal investigation’’ into the matter. The Trump administration has not turned up any new evidence that the Obama administration was unable to find in this active, ongoing criminal investigation (US government surveillance has surely acquired some new tricks since 2010, but time travel isn’t one of them), and indeed it does not claim to have turned up any new evidence.

Just when you thought the U.S. government couldn’t get more horrific than Eric Holder and Obama, we get Mike Pompeo and John Bolton. Trump is an irrelevant figurehead at this point…

Right after this indictment was issued the tenor of the Trump administration changed completely. What was a low simmer of foreign policy betrayals became a complete roiling boil after these two psychopathic losers, Bolton and Pompeo, took office.

They were put in place to keep Trump both ignorant of anything important and toeing the party line. The only thing more craven than Theresa May doing the Deep State’s bidding betraying her people was Mr. “I Love Wikileaks’” sad reaction to the arrest saying, “I don’t know anything about Wikileaks.”

This from a man who was caught on tape over a hundred times praising them for destroying Hillary Clinton’s chances to become president. Just like Theresa May declared in parliament 108 times that “No deal was better than a bad deal.” Liar.

What a pathetic excuse for a grown man Donald Trump is. When they come for him no one will bat an eye.

Colonial Blackmail

Bolton, Pompeo, Vice President Mike Pence, and May’s foreign office spent the entire year ratcheting up pressure on Ecuador’s president Lenin Moreno.

Corrupt to the gills, Moreno, like Trump, is a spineless fool who cut Assange off from the world, treated him like a prisoner and eventually sold him to the U.S./U.K. Deep State for 30 pieces of silver in the form of $4.2 billion in IMF development aid.

And even that wasn’t enough. I’m sure when Moreno saw the lengths Bolton and Pompeo were willing to go to capture Venezuela — blackouts, starvation, sanctions, SWIFT expulsion — he fell into line quickly…

Be seeing you
