In the midst of all the insanity we are seeing with the Covid narrative, it is easy to neglect other aspects of the current authoritarian push. The persecution of Julian Assange is continuing with the US appeal to have him extradited having taken place on the 27th and 28th October at the Royal Courts of Justice.
Security State Terror
The official narrative of the incidents that happened on 9/11 was used to usher in a full scale American security state and to ramp up the military industrial complex. A new rationale was needed for military spending after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and that same collapse also gave America a free hand acting in the world as there was no major power to support anti-imperialist governments in the South. Enter the 9/11 narrative of Islamic terrorists – which justified military campaigns for profit in the name of ‘preventing terrorism’.
This led to the destruction of large parts of the Middle East and the murder of millions of people along with millions more displaced. This destruction is still going on with the US and Israel expanding warfare into Syria.
The persecution of Julian Assange is a crucial part of the continuation of this imperialist project, which is still ongoing despite the alleged ‘withdrawal’ from Afghanistan. The conflicts – including the Israeli targeting of Syria and the continuing starvation of people in Yemen – have continued despite the new narrative being pushed on the world – that we are ‘in the middle of a deadly pandemic’.
The persecution of Assange is also essential to prevent any journalists in the future coming forward. Any actual journalist could expose the Covid narrative or any other future official narrative that may emerge as we head further into biosecurity state transhumanism – a parallel of the 9/11 security state except now the elites have declared war on our biology itself.
The ‘Case’ for Extradition
Due to the ruling made by District Judge Vanessa Baraitser in January 2021, which stated that Julian Assange could not be extradited to the US because of his poor health, the US ‘case’ consisted of arguing that Assange is a malingerer and that he won’t be treated badly in the US.
The idea that a torture victim that looked severely ill in court (via videolink) is a malingerer is self evidently absurd, and this is just another in a long list of lies stated by the prosecution (including using a convicted pedophile to commit perjury).
More importantly, it seems (as I suspected in January, though perhaps did not articulate in the best way) that the original ruling was a ploy. A ploy forced by opposition to Assange’s extradition, perhaps, but a ploy nevertheless. It set up the appeal to be about the issue of mistreatment in the US. The US can always deny that it will torture Julian Assange, giving the British authorities an excuse to take them at their word and send him over there to die.
There has been no verdict in this case yet and I would guess that there will not be until after Christmas. Meanwhile Assange continues to endure hellish torture in Belmarsh. We must not forget that it doesn’t matter to the establishment where he suffers and dies, just so long as he does.
