    Fighting Limbo: Assange to release new leaks despite self-imposed incarceration




    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    THE DAILY NEWS.

    Julian Assange to mark two years in Ecuadorian embassy best way he knows how —
    leaking documents

    The WikiLeak founder sent a message to President Obama and U.S Attorney
    General Eric Holder on Wednesday, saying he has documents that threaten their legacy.



    Not original article photo, could not get it to copy.

    Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, seen in 2012, says he has documents that show
    President Obama has spied on journalist.Two years of being trapped inside an
    Ecuadorian embassy has not sweetened WikiLeaks wizard Julian Assange's
    disposition.Assange has vowed to post more diplomatic dirt online Thursday to
    mark the second anniversary of his imprisonment at the embassy in London.

    Earlier, Assange hinted at what's to come, saying the soon-to-be-leaked documents
    are "in the field of international negotiations" involving some 50 countries.

    Assange did not elaborate, but they are sure to include the U.S. and reportedly
    Canada and Australia as well.In a conference call on Wednesday, Assange sent a
    message to President Obama and U.S Attorney General Eric Holder.

    "Mr. Obama, you must surely now start to reflect on what your legacy will be after
    two presidential terms," he said. "It must be at odds with a former professor of
    constitutional law to have a legacy … of being the President that conducted more
    espionage investigations against journalists than all Presidents going back to 1917
    and the original issuance of the Espionage Act."

    Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago.

    Assange also called former Australian foreign minister Bob Carr a liar and said he's
    been watching the World Cup soccer tournament.

    The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the embassy because he is wanted in
    Sweden for questioning about sexual abuse allegations.

    Assange claims he is being persecuted for releasing a treasure trove of classified
    documents about NSA surveillance and military documents detailing U.S. actions in
    Afghanistan and elsewhere.

    Wikileaks founder 'fears for safety of family'Julian Assange speaking to the media at
    the Ecuadorean embassy in London. 19/06/2014 Wikileaks facilitated the leaking of
    thousands of secret American documents Continue reading the main story




    The founder of the Wikileaks website Julian Assange says he fears for the safety of his family.

    Speaking at the Ecuadorean embassy in London, Mr Assange said unspecified
    individuals had made threats against his children and his mother.He complained
    that he has been unable to see them in four years.Mr Assange took refuge at the
    Ecuadorean embassy two years ago to avoid extradition to Sweden.The authorities
    in Stockholm want to question him over allegations by two women of sexual
    assault.Mr Assange said he would remain in the embassy until the impasse over his
    future was broken.

    He said his lawyers had advised him there was still a "serious risk" he would be
    extradited to the United States if he gave up political asylum.

    "It would be foolish to relinquish my asylum in light of what happened to Chelsea
    Manning," he said.

    Chelsea Manning, an American soldier formerly known as Bradley, has been
    sentenced to 35 years in prison in the US for passing thousands of secret
    documents to the Wikileaks website.

    The leaks caused intense embarrassment of the US and other governments.

    Should've caused jail for them rather than "embarrassment."

    Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago

    should read

    Obama "taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago."

    While Assange's predicament (holed up in an embassy to dodge phony charges) sounds a little more believable than Snowden's (avoiding extradition while globetrotting and appearing prodigiously in MSM), I am very leery of "threats to release information" as Assange, Snowden and Greenwald all have threatened. Instead of threatening, why not just release it? If they're really whistleblowers, blow the damn whistle, don't THREATEN to. If you had the secret, undeniable proof of the JFK assassination, would you "threaten" to release it or send it to as many truth outlets as possible? Are they playing "Let's Make a Deal?"

    By the way, we're still waiting for Greenwald to release the spied-upon list.

    I'm still pretty sure Assange is CO-OP'd.... he's allowed air time, there for he must be a part of the plan.

    IMO Assange and Snowden are simply "pressure release" actors, trying to stem the flood of real whistleblowers by putting up two "hero" figures so everyone else can just relax, it's handled by wikileaks + snowden (even though neither one of them really "leaked" anything that hasn't been said before)

    Hi Targe where as I agree anything is possible, and maybe the information has
    been leaked or published by other 'whistleblowers' and media outlets. I don't
    think they are actors , but time will tell. Snowden has awoke everyone that
    they are being spied on or potentially spied on at any time. I have thought
    that was the case anyway from all the surveillance from the Cold war onwards.
    But he has left the whole world in no doubt.If that is what the intel agents
    wanted everyone to know and condition us for whats to come, maybe it
    makes sense as most people don't seem to mind 'Big Brother' reading their
    mail or listening to their conversations in the name of 'Security'.

    Julian Assange again published many of Bradley/Chelsea Mannings leaks
    ane the Helicoptor footage from a war zone was very telling, not sure what
    the PTB gained from leaking that but who knows? I'm still open to the
    fact they are journalist & 'whistleblower' but we will have to wait and see.

    Here's where it gets fuzzy, actors or allowed to act?

    Dupes or co-conspirators... the lines get fuzzy here for sure, though both these individuals have strange ties to exactly what we would call "TPTB"; Snowden being more obvious and Assange's connections take a bit more digging.

    The snowden revelations are nothing new at all, there have been whistle blowers telling us this for years, about the Nexus stations, the purposeful intercept of all internet traffic at them and how this "look the other way" type of surveillance has been going on for a while... but no one got air time until snowden.

    All Snowden really released was exactly what we already knew with enough new "inside info" that it seemed sensational... and what is the outcome? not a single arrest, nothing at all except that now we "know" that everything we do is recorded and monitored.. seems like a population scare tactic to me; what else is it?

    Collateral Murder - Wikileaks - Iraq

    the Collateral Murder leak video was brilliant IMO... if you casually glanced at it it seemed like war atrocities were being committed, but then on a closer inspection you'll see that everything in the video lines up perfectly with what was reported to happen and that the video is easily shown to be of a valid operation.

    Wikileaks continued to "leak" documents that showed that Iraq and Afghanistan were not going as well as "official word" said it was and that we needed more troops.. there was nothing "leaked" that caused any arrests or any corrective action, in fact all the "leaks" did was support the war effort.

    to me these both hold signatures of public manipulation.

    it USED to be called Propaganda, then it became "Public Relations" and these are both examples of how our group psychology is leveraged to keep us under control.

    I was just thinking about starting a new thread on this topic, but I don't have the time to give it due diligence.

    check out this video:


    it covers the individual and group psychology methods used by governments around the world.. it details their main "tool" for population control (guiding public opinion), how powerful it is and how it's been used on us for over a century now.

    We can use the same tool.... We can control public opinion and guide it to the truth; I think this is a great idea for a call to action.
    Hard times create strong men, Strong men create good times, Good times create weak men, Weak men create hard times.
