WikiLeaks' Julian Assange: How much trouble is he in?

• Christian Science Monitor

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has grabbed the world’s attention by publicizing a vast trove of secret US diplomatic documents. But his actions have also enraged top government officials around the world. How much trouble is he in, legally speaking?

Skip to next paragraph

Perhaps more than he has bargained for. Mr. Assange could be sent to prison for a very long time if the US is able to successfully prosecute him under the Espionage Act. The statute is a broad law that provides for harsh penalties, notes Stephen Vladeck, an expert in national security law at American University in Washington.

The real question may be whether the US Department of Justice wants to pursue the matter. Historically, the US has not prosecuted leak recipients. The US might not be eager to provide Assange a courtroom forum in which he can bring further attention to the contents of his trove of classified cables.

How much trouble is he in?  Well, I assume enough to have the CIA looking for him.  Mossad, on the other hand, are happy because Israel was portrayed as such righteous victim.  Maybe Julian can go hide in Israel.  They'll probably make a hero out of him.

I`d bet my deuce coupe that Assange was set up by TPTB.
I think that males being “groomed” by the CURSOTA, cirrhotic unskilled rabid scum of the ages, to be future political leaders etc are often provided with pretty girl spooks/drugs for parties and then covertly filmed/recorded. Why? Its a convenient way to ruin their reputation in case they turn against their “handlers” in the future.
Now thanks probably to 2 lying bitches, these scum have Assange by the balls. There`s probably nothing he can do except to continue to hide! And if they catch him the sheeple will stupidly say hooray! Hopefully he`l have some witnesses but who wants to have witnesses around when they are having sex? These cowards attack when your pants are down because thats the only way they can win a fight.
Note that in Bopland where I reside, anyone who brings false charges against someone is “disciplined” by the person who was charged.

Digressing a moment, the cursota enact absurd sex restrictions for ONE reason only; to either shame or frame red-blooded males who step out of line with the rest of the house-trained herd. In other words, sex restrictions act as cattle prods to keep us ALL tense, irritable, grim and under their strict control. Experiencing pain is “in”, pleasure is “out”.
When the going gets tough and a brave man comes along who has them all by the balls, they often bring a woman in the picture to frame/shame him. If they can`t do that they snuff him.
IMO that`s what they have done to many Rock/Country musicians, eg Buddy Holly/John Lennon/Michael Jackson/Karen Carpenter/Allman Brothers/Lynyrd Skynyrd/Sam Cooke/Del Shannon and many others. Valid R an R was the greatest threat to their parasitic existence they`ve EVER had and murder was only ONE out of DOZENS of covert ways they used to cripple Rock.

Jonathan Swift, 1667-1745, said “when a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign; that all the dunces are in confederacy against him”.

The late Billy Ford an the Thunderbirds {of Billy an Lillie fame} “I`m the monster R an R”, 1958, is no doubt one of the five top Rock songs of all time;

I`m the monster Rock an Roll ~ hated by all whose hearts are old
I`m payin for everything in the book ~ it seems I got the country shook
I mention my name they throw their lids ~ an nobody luves me but the kids
I`ll let the critics throw their knots ~ the louder they shout the harder I rocks
There hopin I`m insane soon be dead ~ tryin to kill me cut off my head
But if you cut my head off son ~ two will grow where there was one
the battle was on the fight began ~ a musical war thruout the land
scratched their heads an started to think ~ the lipsync music would make me sink
Hawaiian ballads an Hillbilly too ~ they threw them all rite into the stew
ate them up an what came out ~ Rockahula Rockashout
Arockabilly Rockasweet ~ nevertheless its got the beat

nomatter how many fights they stage ~ we`re livin in the new Rock Age
I`m the monster Rock an Roll ~ the kids all luv me heart an soul
thats why I`ll never be left alone ~ when they grow up I`ll have a home
After all their shouting in the ring ~ Rock an Roll will still be king

Never mind the affliction
Bopperism is the cure
