On Julian Assange

1. World Socialist Website:

CNN cited US legal scholar Orin Kerr, who bluntly stated that the two publicly-revealed US charges against Assange—alleging he was involved in a conspiracy to gain unauthorised access to a US government computer—were “a placeholder.” Kerr said they were only “a brief indictment sufficient to get the case started, but very likely only a small part of any case against Assange.”

There is no evidence, in the indictment against Assange, or a supporting affidavit from an FBI special agent, indicating that the password was ever broken. Moreover, as an army intelligence analyst, Manning already had authorised access to all of the material that she would provide to WikiLeaks.

The affidavit against Assange accompanying the indictment, however, incorporates language taken directly from the US Espionage Act. It states that “Manning and Assange had reason to be

The 7 years of lies about Assange won’t stop now

Still the media and political class is turning a blind eye. Where is the outrage at the lies we have been served up for these past seven years? Where is the contrition at having been gulled for so long? Where is the fury at the most basic press freedom – the right to publish – being trashed to silence Assange? Where is the willingness finally to speak up in Assange’s defence?

It’s not there. There will be no indignation at the BBC, or the Guardian, or CNN. Just curious, impassive – even gently mocking – reporting of Assange’s fate.

Thin-skinned Rep. and dairy farmer Devin Nunes (R - CA) files lawsuit against The Fresno Bee

A record of the lawsuit couldn’t be found in the Virginia online records system, but Nunes confirmed the lawsuit in a Monday night appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
Nunes declared that McClatchy reporters need “to come clean with the American people” and retract their “fake news” reports. He said he wants such stories scrubbed from the internet and promised more legal challenges.

The story by reporter Mackenzie Mays detailed claims in the lawsuit about an event that took place aboard a yacht where winery employee Alene Anase alleged she saw guests on the charity cruise using what appeared to be cocaine “and ‘drawing straws’ for which sex worker to hire.”

Nunes claims in the suit that the attacks on him were made, in part, to “interfere with and divert Nunes’ attention from his investigation of corruption and alleged Russian involvement in the 20

The inquiring answer


What would I do without my name?
Would I continue this game?

What would I do without my age?
Would I break out of this cage?

What would I do without my mind?
Would I take a single look behind?

What would I do without my heart?
Would I accept myself or break apart?

What would I do without my origins?
Would I still succumb to my sins?

Any answer you will find in you.
Any answer brings a fresh view.

On Devin Nunes' (R - CA) thin-skinned appearance on the internet


(The opinion piece (to put it in the foreground): USA TODAY


(Speaking of Devin Nunes in my previous post, I also found this neat little peace of writing. I'm sure that many of you have heard of Nunes' lawsuit against the alleged «shadow-banning» that takes place on Twitter with fake-accounts mocking his name or personality, such as «Devin Nunes' Cow», his «Alt-Mom», his «Skin», his «Emotional Support Dog», and what not (for those who didn't: Fox News - Yes I know it's Fox News, but it doesn't contain any bias, only the facts).

On Ted Cruz' (R - TX) lawsuit agains tthe Federal Election Committee


No matter what you say about the case, the article or the entire website I hereby share, they personally had me at the first chapter already: «The unlikable, craven hypocrite has a point». This was beyond hilarious. :'D
Cruz is challenging an FEC rule that limits the amount of money candidates can reimburse themselves for personal loans given to their own campaigns. The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act limits repayments candidates can give themselves from post-election fundraising to $250,000. Cruz claims he loaned his campaign $260,000 during his Texas Senate battle against Beto O’Rourke.

Wealthy candidates have a First Amendment right (so the story goes) to spend as much as they want to buy themselves an election. But limiting how much they can reimburse themselves arguably disincentivizes profligate personal financing of elections. After $250K, all additional “speech” is a sunk cost. If that means some candidates will not loan themselves q

Ecuadorian embassy to London throws out Wikileaks founder Julian Assange after years of residence

"BREAKING: A high level source within the Ecuadorian state has told @WikiLeaks that Julian Assange will be expelled within 'hours to days' using the #INAPapers offshore scandal as a pretext--and that it already has an agreement with the UK for his arrest," WikiLeaks tweeted from its verified account.
If I remember correctly, he was persecuted for a sexual abuse, right? What was the #INAPapers scandal again?
"The leak has sparked a congressional investigation into President Moreno for corruption. Moreno can’t be summoned for a criminal probe while he remains president. He is currently being investigated and risks impeachment," the blog post read.
Interesting idea, I must admit. The question is whether legal persecutors could rightly rely on WikiLeaks d... show more

Panhandling is not illegal in Arkansas, federal judge decides

U.S. District Judge Robert Dawson on Monday imposed a permanent injunction on a 2017 ordinance in Hot Springs that outlaws physical interactions between pedestrians and people in vehicles, The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported. The ordinance violates the First Amendment by regulating speech based on content, Dawson said.
I didn't even know you could illegalise something like this. Marvellous!
"The Court is unpersuaded by the city's effort to separate physical interaction from its expressive intent or message as a means of avoiding conflict with the First Amendment," he wrote. "All people everywhere routinely communicate non-verbal messages through physical interaction, often without noticing it."

Google's «Project Maven» was protected from Freedom Of Information Act

Maven would use artificial intelligence to help pick out drone targets faster and more easily, and that Google backed out of its Maven contract amid staff outcry. (Maven is now linked to defense startup Anduril Industries.) Black’s email was obtained and partially published by The Intercept last year.

The Freedom of Information Act is a vital tool for journalism, watchdog groups, academics, and anyone else hoping to bring news to the public about what its government is doing in its name. But the government says Project Maven is immune.

Ethics of journalism instructor hit by backlash on KKK-comparison of Young Americans For Freedom

Mississippi State Chief Communications Officer Sid Slater told Campus Reform that the students in the YAF chapter were clearly engaged in lawful activities that were in compliance with university guidelines. She offered additional remarks regarding Phillips’ comments.
Seems like his joke didn't reach the people as it was supposed to. How sad for him, let's see if he will resign from his post or not.
YAF’s national spokesman, Spencer Brown, called the incident “emblematic of a major problem within higher education—and to an extent within the larger culture today—where ideological opponents of conservatism turn to ad hominem attacks and poison the well of ideas in their attempts to silence conservatives.”

The Economicst interview with Alt-Right pundit Ben Shapiro

His views are classically religious-conservative. He suggests that transgender people suffer a “mental disorder”; he opposes same-sex couples raising children; he has said (and sort of retracted) that “Arabs like to bomb crap and live in open sewage.”
This is far from Conservative, this is immature and die-hard controversial. You cannot have worthwhile discussions with arguments this way. You can only break his nose and let him pay for the operation.
And then in turn, we’ve fought back against the notion of reason itself. And we’re reverting to a sort of tribalism we see in our politics that's getting quite ugly.
I wonder how you can reasonably argue that a supernatural being like God could exist, and how it could be proven. This would be an intriguing topic to discuss with him.
Of course that’s true. It’s also true that slavery is a universal human institution until its abolition essentially

On Lamar Alexander (R - TN) and Charlie Kirk, head of Turning Point USA

This, of course, is not true. Turning Point USA’s “top priority” is, well, Turning Point USA. To the extent this organization and its leaders have priorities, they are always in service to self.

Lest we forget, we wouldn’t be discussing this executive order if not for Hayden Williams, the man involved in the scuffle. Williams is not a Berkeley student, but a Leadership Institute staffer airdropped in to help TPUSA with the hard work of converting students to conservatism at Berkeley. Just like Jews for Jesus recruited at my Catholic University, it’s a struggle, but somebody has to do it.

And I agree that colleges should punish hecklers who veto free speech, and stop coddling students to protect them from disagreeable points of view. But I don’t want to see Congress or the President or the department of anything creating speech codes to define what you can say on campus. The U.S. Constitution guarantees free speech. Federal

EU passes controversial copyright reform despite public criticism


The deal brings measures that would make platforms such as YouTube and Facebook liable for copyrighted material on their sites one step closer to conclusion.

How did we get here? European copyright law dates back to 2001 and the European Court of Justice has long been calling for it to be modernized in line with the digital era. EU officials are cognizant of the fact that a lot of material that is copyrighted ends up on the Internet without the original owners being fairly remunerated.

Why it is controversial: Tuesday's vote was the culmination of three years bitter debate. Tech giants, which make huge profits from advertising on content they host, and supporters of a free internet opposed the reform. Critics fear this will lead to the installation of "upload filters." Publishers and artists were in favor, as they sought a better return on the content they produce.

Trump orders investigation into critical news outlets, Google, Twitter and Facebook


“It seems to be, if it’s conservatives, if Republicans, there is big discrimination,” Drumpf said of social media platforms. “I see it absolutely on Twitter,” he said, also naming Google and Facebook as offenders.

I guess her heard about Nunes' lawsuit against Twitter for allowing people to express their sometimes blatant opinion. But why would he name Twitter anyway? I mean, he's on there all the time, trampling through it with his tweets, it's like his regular press secretary. He's an idiot, after all.

“You look at the networks, you look at the news, you look at the newscasts – I call it Fake News,” Drumpf said, letting Bolsonaro know he had first dibs.

During the eventful Rose Garden presser, Drumpf also announced the “twilight hour of socialism has arrived” in the Western Hemisphere, citing unrest in Nicaragua, and change in Cuba.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R - CA) sues Twitter and three users for «silencing conservative voices»


(Guess that our GOP snowflakes can't stand the criticism they raise with all their mockery, their outspeaking and such. Please hand this man down some essays on what free speech is all about, because it seems to me like he didn't understand it. Anyway, let's read on.)
Fox News on Monday uploaded a copy of the complaint to its website. It was unclear whether the suit had actually been filed, since the copy did not bear a case number. Nunes’ lawyer could not be reached for comment Monday night.

Guess he was only screaming for attention. But as we all know, one must not count one's chickens before they are hatched.

“They spread this fake news and the slanderous news,” Nunes told host Sean Hannity in an interview on Fox News, accusing Twitter of “proliferating out things that they agree with, with the algorithms” he said the company has developed.
