Cheers to the UK! Now, where do we go with the residue of this stinking pile of bull shit?

I’m talking to you, Joe Biden.

Thank you Julian Assange for laying bare the insensate criminality. Anyone NOT implicated in such atrocities might be in the clear, but faces the very worst of the elements of one globally very sick empire in decline and attempting to reinvent itself. The remaining herd chose its poison and is slowly meeting their karma, which makes the work of WE THE PEOPLE the education of a lifetime.

Well said!

Trump’s friend needs to find the EXIT sign.

As a retired museum taxidermist, I’d like the opportunity to nail the bastard to a perch. ala, the python’s dead parrot stunt.! ’
The Oz ‘Christian’ PM deserves the same treatment…! Merde to them all…!

We live in a pariah nation, much like Russia. Am watching Netlix series called Borgen, and it is clear how the Danes think of us. One episode is about the US using Greenland as a stopover place for rendition of suspected (but not proven) terrorists. The issue is the rule of law versus unilateral decisions by the US to violate that law.
The only people that believe that the US is a force for good in the world are those deluded–like Joe Biden.

The amazing thing is that when you mention Assange, the only people who pop up to demand he be imprisoned and prosecuted are US liberals.

They don’t realize how isolated in the world they are: the only ones on the side of Pompeo, CIA & the DOJ. But that’s 100% who they are.

Although this is only a temporary stay, it is still the best news so far in 2021. Props to the judge for having the courage to go against the US and its proxy, the UK government.

He should be free. If the world order was just, those that he exposed, the corrupt American war machine headed by such luminaries as our current president-elect, would be the ones in jail.

We’ve got one, who can SEE! But, he, he, he… outed Hills! He MUST mysteriously suicide, alone in SuperMax or GitMo? Gotta LOVE, her magnanimity is “mental health” based?

The comments are interesting. Didn’t read the judgement - 132 pages!!!’
Let’s hope he is released immediately.

Yeah, gone are the days of John Kennedy.

I’m more concerned than ever; whistleblowers, journalists, basically dissent itself (based upon inconvenient facts: cherry-picked ignored or obfuscated by our autocracy’s complicit media) will cause the last few nascent lefty blog-aggregator’s compliance. I believe, we’re seeing that, right here? If John, Debbie, Robby & Hillary’s e-mails were leaked right now (with the corportacracy securely re-installed, the “socialist” crushed, nothing fundementally changed AND back to NORMAL!!!) do you think, CD would DARE to link to an Apache murdering innocent foreign nationals in broad daylight, then vaporizing attempted rescurers with seventy uranium slugs a second from bored, soilless American kids, a couple miles away, epitomizing what we’ve now become?

What the Gestapo would do would be to delude speciously gullible with “good” news, then kick in the door and hustle him off for torture/ unfortunate suicide in the SuperMax?
