The Power of Julian Assange

May 24, 2019 by Barbara With

On November 5, 2016, Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange gave an interview with his partner John Pilfer to address the content of the Hillary Clinton emails that Wikileaks had published. The general election was three days away, and Assange spoke of the enormity of what was uncovered in those emails.

The leaked emails showed that that Saudi Arabia and Qatari governments were funding ISIS as they were giving millions to the Clinton Foundation while Clinton is Secretary of State. During that time, the State Department approved massive arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The Saudis paid Clinton’s foundation in a pay-to-play scheme, Clinton brokered the deal to sell arms to the Saudis, who then armed ISIS and al-qaeda forces. In essence, the United States, as directed by Clinton, was supplying the arms that our “enemies” were using to kill our own people.

International Business Times also did an investigation into this pay-to-play:

Under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure — derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.

The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration. These extra sales were part of a broad increase in American military exports that accompanied Obama’s arrival in the White House. The 143 percent increase in U.S. arms sales to Clinton Foundation donors compares to an 80 percent increase in such sales to all countries over the same time period.

American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012.

The emails also showed that Clinton was the champion of the war in Libya:

She perceived that the removal of Qaddafi and the overthrow of the Libyan state as something she could use in the run-up of the general election. So in late 2011 there is an internal document called the Libya Tick Tock that was produced for Hillary Clinton, and it’s the chronological description of how she was the central figure in the destruction of the Libyan state, which resulted in around 40,000 deaths within Libya; jihadists moved in, ISIS moved in, leading to the European refugee and migrant crisis.

After Assange published the Podesta and Clinton emails, Trump won the election. The leaks from 2016 proved that she and the DNC rigged the Democratic primary for her and had been lying for months to the public. Trump had no global cabal to his name and had been elevated by the DNC as a “pied piper” candidate, designed to lead people towards Clinton. Their experiment went terribly wrong, as the #demexit made sure Clinton and her war machine would not win the White House.

Below are just a fraction of what Wikileaks uncovered in 2010:

  • U.S. forces kill two Reuters journalist
  • U.S. helicopter gun down 12 citizens in Bagdad
  • U.S. Iraqi security forces torture prisoners with electrocution, beatings, burning and rape
  • Hillary Clinton orders American diplomats to spy on U.N. officials

  • Obama and GOP work together to kill probe into Bush torture
  • U.S. stops court cases of Guantanamo prisoners
  • Obama lies about torture
  • U.S. pressures Germany not to prosecute CIA officers in Yemeni torture
  • U.S special forces are working inside Pakistan
  • Reveal the dangers of the Afghanistan war: killing of hundreds of civilians, NATO commanders are fueling the insurgency, and Taliban attacks have soared

On May 23, the Department of Justice charged Assange with 17 counts of espionage and are demanding his extradition to the U.S. to stand trial. He is being held in London awaiting a decision. If found guilty, he could be sentenced for ten years for every charge, or possibly be sentenced to death as a spy.

Meanwhile, mainstream media continues to publish lies about him, continuing to try and lead the public away from the criminals he uncovered and build a case against him. Wikileaks calls it “the end of national security journalist.”

The very reason the deep state wants to shoot the messenger.
