The rape case has not been dropped in the sense that he now faces no chance of prosecution. That is obvious from the article I quoted in the post prior to this one.

Beyond that you tend to misrepresent my arguments and I see any attempt to get you to understand the truth futile.

I am not misrepresenting anything. You are just playing with words. You wouldn't recognise the truth if it crawled up your trouserleg and bit you on the balls.

If the real reason he fled to that embassy was fear of prosecution for rape in Sweden, what would be the point in him staying there after the rape case has been dropped? The only explanation for his continued presence in that embassy is fear of extradition to the US, and the recent visit of senior US politician to discuss the exchange of information regarding the DNC leak for a US "pardon" 100% confirms that his fears are justified.


Bang on UE, as usual.

Quote:
According to police records of SW’s phone seen by Assange’s lawyers, ‘SW’ [one of the two women Assange slept with] wrote from the police station that she “did not want to put any charges on Julian Assange,” but that the police were “keen on getting their hands on him.”

The next day she wrote she “did not want to accuse” Assange “for anything” and that it was the “police who made up the charges (sic).”


There was never an accusation of 'rape' from the two girls; all they wanted to know initially was whether Assange could be compelled to take an HIV test.

Even the BBC agrees.

Quote:
21 August 2010
The arrest warrant is withdrawn. "I don't think there is reason to suspect that he has committed rape," says one of Stockholm's chief prosecutors, Eva Finne.

Talk of Assange pardon worries intelligence community


We truly have arrived in 1984. Double-plus bad.

How can anybody talk of an "Assange pardon" when the Assange in question has never even been charged with offence in question, let alone convicted? In fact, according to John Hemming, much of the mainstream media and countless other sources, he isn't even wanted for the thing there is talk of pardoning him for. If you look at if objectively - if you try to understand the words being used, at face value - it is totally incomprehensible.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardon

Quote:

A pardon is a government decision to allow a person who has been convicted of a crime to be free and absolved of that conviction, as if they were never convicted.


Looks like the wikipedia entry needs to be amended.

What I said was that Obama did not want him. Trump's administration is a different thing.

These days you can be an anti-semite for criticising overt Israeli influence.

By that measure, it means I'm anti-Irish because I criticise its government's policies.

It's difficult to know what to believe: it's best to not have any beliefs.

John Pilger: Clinton, Assange and the War on Truth

John Pilger wrote:
In the years I have known Julian Assange, I have watched a vituperative personal campaign try to stop him and WikiLeaks. It has been a frontal assault on whistleblowing, on free speech and free journalism, all of which are now under sustained attack from governments and corporate internet controllers.

The first serious attacks on Assange came from the Guardian which, like a spurned lover, turned on its besieged former source, having hugely profited from WikiLeaks' disclosures. With not a penny going to Assange or WikiLeaks, a Guardian book led to a lucrative Hollywood movie deal. Assange was portrayed as "callous" and a "damaged personality".

It was as if a rampant jealousy could not accept that his remarkable achievements stood in marked contrast to that of his detractors in the "mainstream" media. It is like watching the guardians of the status quo, regardless of age, struggling to silence real dissent and prevent the emergence of the new and hopeful.

Today, Assange remains a political refugee from the war-making dark state of which Donald Trump is a caricature and Hillary Clinton the embodiment. His resilience and courage are astonishing. Unlike him, his tormentors are cowards.

Clear, cogent and cutting as per usual. It is a seriously savage article!

All mainstream media are part of the establishment; they all rely on funders they dare not antagonise, The BBC and The Guardian especially.

Plus, Assange embarrasses them by doing the job they know they should be doing but aren't allowed to.
