Fmr. Army Intelligence Analyst and Assange supporter Chelsea Manning again incarcerated after refusing to comply with court

In addition to being held in custody for the duration of the grand jury's investigation or until Manning testifies, the judge ordered her to be fined $500 every day that she is in custody after 30 days and $1,000 every day in custody after 60 days, according to a statement by Manning's lawyers.
This is getting out of hand, this is blackmailing into complying with court: You either obey us, or we are going to bleed you out financially. This cannot be lawful, in my opinion.
Assange remains in England and has vowed to fight extradition to the United States. Swedish prosecutors have reopened an inquiry into rape allegations against him, and are seeking to extradite Assange to Sweden.
One way or the other, they try to get their hands on him, they even warm up those allegations, as if they found any more evidence on it.

Fmr. US Army Intelligence Analyst Chelsea Manning released from jail, going to court next week

But her lawyers said she may return to jail as soon as next week and be held in contempt of court again. Manning was served with another subpoena while at a detention center in Alexandria, Virginia and is expected to appear in court on May 16.

“Chelsea will continue to refuse to answer questions, and will use every available legal defense to prove to District Judge Trenga that she has just cause for her refusal to give testimony," her legal team said in a statement.
So much freedom - almost one week in full. Isn't it enjoyable to see how non-exhausting a judiciary system can be?
"In solidarity with many activists facing the odds, I will stand by my principles," Manning said in a statement before the hearing. "I will exhaust every legal remedy available."

Globale Militärausgaben übersteigen 1,8 Billionen Dollar - ein historischer Rekord

Von Niles Niemuth
1. Mai 2019

Laut Jahresbericht des Stockholm International Peace Research Institute ( #SIPRI ), der diese Woche veröffentlicht wurde, haben die globalen Militärausgaben nach dem Kalten #Krieg ein neues Hoch erreicht und lagen 2018 bei über 1,8 Billionen US-Dollar. Dies entspricht einer Steigerung von 2,6 Prozent gegenüber dem bisherigen Jahresrekord der weltweiten #Militärausgaben im Jahr 2017.

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

I do think that #Assange is a shill for #Putin, yes I do.
But that doesn't mean I want him extradited or criminally charged for it. It is especially ironic that the man who was so afraid of Clinton that he helped trump defeat her, may now be extradited by trump.
But he isn't even being charged for the Russia stuff anyway. He is being charged for his association with (then )Bradley (now) Chelsea Manning! I was certainly grateful for that video which exposed the mowing down of Iraqi #journalists and the secondary attack on the rescuers.
The #Manning dump was huge, and I think there is also probably some stuff in there that shouldn't have been released because it may have compromised some sources and #... show more

Four further pieces on Julian Assange's arrest and extradition, and what it means for journalism

1. Task & Purpose:

London police were invited into the embassy at Ecuador's request — Assange finally pissed them off enough — and the cops subsequently hauled out Old Man WikiLeaks and threw him into a waiting police van.
Pissing him off means that he didn't care to pay his own fees, not cleaning on his own, and not taking care of his cat but telling the employees inside the embassy to do that. He behaved as if he was on his vacations in a hotel, while he was a persecuted criminal hiding inside the embassy.
After his arrest, the U.S. Department of Justice unsealed charges against him, which amount to "conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for agreeing to break a password to a classified U.S. government computer" — stemming from his 2010 conversations with then-Army Pfc. Bradley Manning.

The persecution of Julian Assange


The false left and #liberals have until now been delighted to hide behind #Russiagate or #Sweden to avoid asking themselves the fundamental question. Julian #Assange is merely a #journalist and publisher. The fundamental question is, should a journalist or publisher be locked up for life for publishing leaked documents showing #war crimes? If the answer is yes, where is press #freedom?

That is now the unavoidable question.

Whistleblower Chelsea Manning faces charges for not testifying before court


The video says that she invoked her fourth, fifth and sixth amendment while appearing before a grand jury. How did this happen exactly?

The grand jury asked questions about her public disclosure of her diplomatic cables and military logs in 2010.

She spent about six years behind bars for this disclosure (damn, was it worth that in the end?)

She's going to appear before federal court today, on this topic.

On WikiLeaks and the investigation against veteran Chelsea Manning


“I am not going to contribute to a process that I feel is dangerous and could potentially place me in a position where I am forced to backtrack on the truth,” she told the paper.

“At the insistence of the clerk, the motion was filed under seal,” said Meltzer-Cohen in an email to The Daily Beast. “Our position is that litigation regarding the enforceability of a subpoena does not implicate grand jury secrecy, and we will move to have it unsealed. Chelsea, as you might expect, wants to bring some transparency to this process and hopes to be able to share the filing soon.”

But the case went nowhere. The Obama administration ultimately decided that prosecuting Assange for accepting and publishing leaked documents would run into First Amendment issues. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since August 2012, when he breached bail to avoid extradition to Sweden over accusations of sexual assault and rape... show more
