Support Julian Paul Assange

Posted in Cablegate, Deception at 5:55 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Julian Assange hearing

Summary: Journalism that exposes the powerful is still under attack; mainstream media (or just “media” as most people call the corporate and oligarchs-controlled media) wants us to think all is well, however, and that the end of the Donald Trump regime means journalism “won”

IT is too easy to forget that down in London (well, south of where I am) there’s a courageous journalist behind bars. You see, ‘civilised’ Britain decided that the same person whom it championed and celebrated one decade ago (Cablegate around December 2010) is now a villain and and a dangerous person looking to rape your daughter, prop up the extreme right, and work for Vladimir Putin.

“If you value the work we do here in Techrights (we rely a great deal on leaked information), you won’t be easily fooled by what media keeps saying about Wikileaks.”If you seriously believe that Assange is indeed a rapist, then you might as well just want to altogether skip this article. Because your critical assessment of the press is evidently too weak. The truth of the matter is, even the supposed victims described themselves as “choked” [sic] (means shocked) to see what Swedish police had done ‘in their name’. The police coordinated with the FBI and later claimed that it had lost the correspondence with the FBI. The contradicting material/evidence was preserved however. It’s all in SMS trail, photography and so on; one supposed accuser is linked to the CIA and publicly boasted about weaponisation of false sex-related accusations (the blog post was unsurprisingly removed by her afterwards).

Assange on warThe second paragraph (above) can be spun out of context to call me all sorts of things, as was done when I spoke about Jacob Appelbaum, another prominent member of Wikileaks. Someone from Google is still trying to spin those sorts of things, having already asserted all sorts of things about me (innuendo is very cheap considering how effective it can be). But put back into context, everything here is factual and provable (with direct, explicit evidence).

Smearing of messengers isn’t a new strategy; it’s centuries if not millennia old. Maybe it’s as old as human languages. Some might say that the Jesus Christ story is relevant as well, but let’s not get into religion and biblical stuff. Moreover, by no means do we compare Wikileaks staff to anything divine; I know some of them personally and I have much in common with some of them. I spoke to Mr. Assange several times over the years and he’s left/Green-leaning, contrary to what the media likes to tell us. Dig into his past in Australia and it’ll become apparent.

With COVID-19 and the lock-downs (London is being ‘upgraded’ to the highest alertness level tomorrow, known as “Tier Three”) physical congregations or protests have already become very difficult. Surveillance is increasing (it’s being justified as “health and safety”). The media is trying to pretend that a certain someone in Belmarsh prison doesn’t count or that he’s worthy of death. This is the sort of ‘pipeline’ that starts with character assassination and proceeds to actual assassination (once the ‘risk’ of public sympathy is reduced).

Over the years we’ve used material from Wikileaks extensively; we showed some stuff about the history of the EPO, the father of António Campinos, and we exposed corruption connected to Bill Gates and Microsoft. Earlier this year we looked into and reported on IBM-related material, which was declassified years ago.

Society benefited a great deal from Wikileaks; 4 years of Donald Trump aren’t the fault of Wikileaks. That leaked material would likely end up somewhere else if Wikileaks did not exist and there’s no strong/compelling evidence to show that Podesta’s E-mails and DNC leaks were the main reason Hillary Clinton lost the election. When both corporate parties put forth weak candidates (indebted to the rich) the outcome of any election isn’t meant to benefit the general public.

Mr. Assange turns 50 this coming summer. Some say he might not even make it that far. If you value the work we do here in Techrights (we rely a great deal on leaked information), you won’t be easily fooled by what media keeps saying about Wikileaks.

  2. Sirius Finished

    Yesterday I was sent a letter approving my resignation from Sirius ‘Open Source’, two months after I had already announced that I was resigning with immediate effect; they sent an identical letter to my wife (this time, unlike before, they remembered to also change the names!!)



  3. The Collapse of Sirius in a Nutshell: How to Identify the Symptoms and Decide When to Leave

    Sirius is finished, but it's important to share the lessons learned with other people; there might be other "pretenders" out there and they need to be abandoned

  6. Linux News or Marketing Platform?

    Ads everywhere: Phoronix puts them at the top, bottom, navigation bar, left, and right just to read some Microsoft junk (puff pieces about something that nobody other than Microsoft even uses); in addition there are pop-ups asking for consent to send visitors’ data to hundreds of data brokers



  7. Daily Links at Techrights Turn 15, Time to Give Them an Upgrade

    This year we have several 15-year anniversaries; one of them is Daily Links (it turned 15 earlier this week) and we've been working to improve these batches of links, making them a lot more extensive and somewhat better structured/clustered



  8. Back to Focusing on Unified Patent Court (UPC) Crimes and Illegal Patent Agenda, Including the EPO's

    The EPO's (European Patent Office, Europe's second-largest institution) violations of constitutions, laws and so on merit more coverage, seeing that what's left of the "media" not only fails to cover scandalous things but is actively cheering for criminals (in exchange for money)



  9. European Patent Office Staff Votes in Favour of Freedom of Association (97% of Voters in Support)

    The Central Staff Committee (CSC) at the EPO makes a strong case for António Campinos to stop breaking and law and actually start obeying court orders (he’s no better than Benoît Battistelli and he uses worse language already)

  17. Intimidation Against Nitrux Development Team Upsets the Community and Makes the Media Less Trustworthy

    Nitrux is being criticised for being “very unappealing”; but a look behind the scenes reveals an angry reviewer (habitual mouthpiece of the Linux Foundation and Linux foes) trying to intimidate Nitrux developers, who are unpaid volunteers rather than “corporate” developers

    The Free Software Foundation (FSF) and its founder, Richard M. Stallman (RMS), along with the SFLC one might add, have been under a siege by the trademark-abusing FSFE and SFC; Belgium helps legitimise the ‘fakes’



  20. Techrights in the Next 5 or 10 Years

    Now that I’m free from the shackles of a company (it deteriorated a lot after grabbing Gates Foundation money under an NDA) the site Techrights can flourish and become more active



  21. 60 Days of Articles About Sirius 'Open Source' and the Long Road Ahead

    The Sirius ‘Open Source’ series ended after 60 days (parts published every day except the day my SSD died completely and very suddenly); the video above explains what’s to come and what lessons can be learned from the 21-year collective experience (my wife and I; work periods combined) in a company that still claims, in vain, to be “Open Source”

  23. Taking Techrights to the Next Level in 2023

    I've reached a state of "closure" when it comes to my employer (almost 12 years for me, 9+ years for my wife); expect Techrights to become more active than ever before and belatedly publish important articles, based on longstanding investigations that take a lot of effort



  24. The ISO Delusion: When the Employer Doesn’t Realise That Outsourcing Clients' Passwords to LassPass After Security Breaches Is a Terrible Idea

    The mentality or the general mindset at Sirius ‘Open Source’ was not compatible with that of security conscientiousness and it seemed abundantly clear that paper mills (e.g. ISO certification) cannot compensate for that

  26. EPO Management Isn't Listening to Staff, It's Just Trying to Divide and Demoralise the Staff Instead

    “On 18 January 2023,” the staff representatives tell European Patent Office (EPO) colleagues, “the staff representation met with the administration in a Working Group on the project “Bringing Teams Together”. It was the first meeting since the departure of PD General Administration and the radical changes made to the project. We voiced the major concerns of staff, the organization chaos and unrest caused by the project among teams and made concrete proposals.”

  29. [Meme] With Superheroes Like These...

    Ever since the new managers arrived the talent has fled the company that falsely credits itself with "Open Source"



  30. Not Tolerating Proprietary 'Bossware' in the Workplace (or at Home in Case of Work-From-Home)

    The company known as Sirius ‘Open Source’ generally rejected… Open Source. Today’s focus was the migration to Slack.
