WikiLeaks boss Julian Assange 'could face the death penalty in the U.S.'


Lawyers for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said today they fear he could face execution in the United States if he is extradited to Sweden.
The 39-year-old whistleblower is wanted by the Swedish authorities over claims that he sexually assaulted two women during a visit to Stockholm in August.
But his defence team believe there is a 'real risk' he could be extradited on to the U.S., where he could be detained in Guantanamo Bay or even face the death penalty.

The claim emerged in a skeleton argument released by Assange's lawyers in the wake of a preparatory legal hearing at Woolwich Crown Court.
Assange's legal team suggested that extraditing him to Sweden could breach Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), which bans torture.
They wrote: 'It is submitted that there is a real risk that, if extradited to Sweden, the U.S. will seek his extradition and/or illegal rendition to the USA, where there will be a risk of him being detained at Guantanamo Bay or elsewhere, in conditions which would breach Article 3 of the ECHR.
'Indeed, if Mr Assange were rendered to the USA without assurances that the death penalty would not be carried out, there is a real risk that he could be made subject to the death penalty.'
Today it was confirmed Assange’s lawyers will begin a full two-day extradition hearing on February 7.

In a 10-minute hearing at Belmarsh Magistrates' Court, his QC Geoffrey Robertson said all legal preparations are in place.
Hannah Pye, for the Swedish authorities, said she had no objection to the date in four weeks time.
District Judge Nicholas Evans released Assange, who spoke only to confirm his name, age and address, on conditional bail.
Assange's bail was varied so he is able to stay at the Frontline Club, in Paddington, on February 6 and 7.
Mr Robertson said the long journey from his temporary home on the Norfolk/Suffolk border made it difficult to get to court on time.
Assange, who wore a dark suit and light-coloured shirt, leaned forward and listened intently during the hearing.
Mr Robertson said he is 'confident' everything will be in place by February 7.
He added that Assange's legal team is collecting evidence from further witnesses in Sweden.
But the judge said the Swedish authorities are likely to take the view that the extradition warrant will stand nevertheless.
Speaking outside court after the hearing, Assange said he was 'happy about today's outcome' and vowed that WikiLeaks's activities would continue.
'I would also like to say that our work with WikiLeaks continues unabated and we are stepping up our publishing for matters relating to 'cablegate' and other materials,' he went on.

'This will shortly be occurring through our newspaper partners around the world, big and small newspapers and some human rights organisations.'
Assange spent Christmas at a manor home owned by friend and Frontline Club founder Vaughan Smith.
His barrister said he would like to stay at the Frontline Club, in Southwick Mews, Paddington, on the nights before the hearing.
The judge granted the request but said he wanted written confirmation from Assange's bail sureties saying they agree with the arrangement.
Assange walked into a consultation room with his legal team, including solicitor Mark Stephens, after the hearing.
He was pursued by a group of several dozen reporters but made no comment as police officers followed close behind.

The computer programmer was released on £240,000 bail by a High Court judge last month after spending nine days in Wandsworth Prison.
He denies committing any offences and his supporters claim the criminal inquiry and extradition request is unfair and politically motivated.
The controversial figure was behind the release of hundreds of United States diplomatic cables, as well as information about the Iraq war, that sparked global uproar.
Assange recently signed a book deal for his life story as the U.S. authorities stepped up their pressure on WikiLeaks by demanding information from Twitter.
The hearing took place under intense media scrutiny with journalists from around the world packing 100 seats in the court and an annex connected by video link.
The high security court house has been the scene for a string of terrorism trials including the airline bomb plotters and London Glasgow suicide bomber.
Located on the outskirts of south east London, it is adjacent to Belmarsh Prison and connected to the secure prison complex by a tunnel.
Earlier, supporters of Assange including human rights campaigner Bianca Jagger, socialite Jemima Khan and Gavin MacFadyen, director of the Centre for Investigative Journalism, arrived at court.

I don't get it. What's the difference between espionage and investigative reporting? Has any of the info leaked hurt the US? Or has it been used to aid a foreign nation? If I remember correctly, the main reason for the WH wanting to stop WikiLeaks was to prevent future "embarrassments" and not for national security purposes. Personally, I am grateful for all the whistle blowers out there. All who risk their lives to show us there's more to every "official" story. If it weren't for them we would never know what the real story is. I will never again accept "official" stories being passed on as truth. The mainstream media and the powers that be do a damn good job at suppressing the truth by hushing these journalists and, in many cases, killing their hard work before it gets aired. It isn't til a few years, and sometimes decades later, when one stumbles upon an obscured documentary casually filed away, that paints a different picture. My brain is seared with images and so much filth I have seen and read over time. All these "high officials" at all levels of government committing despicable crimes with no regard for their fellow citizens or human life in general, walk around impune literally getting away with murder. So many good people have "died," the least we can do is listen to their warnings and not let their deaths be in vain. Stand up for Julian Assange. What may happen to him, may also be happening to any of us, soon, whether you supported him or not. Remember, all big brother needs is a bogus charge and we are toast. Ahhh, true justice can't come soon enough for me.

For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Luke 8:17

He had only one leg from an earlier attempt. His life was conveniently taken less than a month after September 11th, 2001 after he predicted it and Osama Bin-Laden as the scapegoat. Bill Clinton called him "the most dangerous man on radio". His book "Behold a Pale Horse" proves he was on to something that got him murdered. He was a true American patriot and spoke truths of things he could prove, not rumors that he heard. His research is a valuable beginning to understanding that everything you have been taught is a lie, what you thought you knew, you don't know anything about.

Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it, piece by piece -- by thought, choice, courage, and determination.

This I believe: That the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual.

"Our rulers can have authority over such natural rights only as we have submitted to them. The rights of conscience we never submitted, we can not submit. I have ever thought religion a concern, purely between our God and our consciences, for which we were accountable to him and not to the priests. For it is in our lives and not from our words that our religion must be read. But this does not satisfy the priesthood. They must have a positive, a declared ascent to all their interested absurdities. My opinion is that there would never have been an infedel, if there had never been a priest."

Fascism in American Political Culture

Fascism in American Political Culture
Notice the two Fasci under each arm of President Lincoln. These Fasci (the universal sign of fascism) are everywhere if you look. They're on the back of a dime, on the walls of congress and here. WHY? I decided to find the real meaning behind it and found it terrifying. I hope you look into it for yourself and pass on what you learn. Etymology The term fascismo is derived from the Italian word fascio, which means "bundle" or group, and from the Latin word fasces. The fasces, which consisted of a bundle of rods that were tied around an axe, was an ancient Roman symbol of the authority of the civic magistrate. They were carried by his lictors and could be used for corporal and capital punishment at his command. The word fascismo also relates to political organizations in Italy known as fasci, groups similar to guilds or syndicates. The symbolism of the fasces suggested strength through unity: a single rod is easily broken, while the bundle is difficult to break. Similar symbols were developed by different fascist movements. For example the Falange symbol is a bunch of arrows joined together by a yoke.
