Assange’s Latest Charge has First Amendment Advocates Alarmed

With free speech and a free press, America will cease to exist.

As the US government grows ever larger and more powerful, it will be of the utmost importance for Americans the nation over to be ultra diligent in bucking any overreaches of power.

We The People have built this nation for the purpose of advancing freedom both throughout our continent and abroad, through leadership by example.

Our legislators were purposefully given the title of “public servant”, as the job was never meant to be a lucrative one.

Of course, that has all changed over the course of the last 200+ years, and we are now staring down a ruling class in Congress made up of wealthy and out-of-touch career politicians.

It is now more than ever that we need someone like Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, to keep an eye on all of the government’s dirty tricks.

Unfortunately, Assange is currently incarcerated and awaiting trial, extradition, or both, and has added a troubling charge of “espionage” to his rap sheet this week.

It is this ridiculous assertion by authorities that has journalists the world over very worried.

The editors of the nation’s most influential newspapers on Friday warned against President Donald Trump administration’s latest threat to the First Amendment, expressing distress over the Justice Department’s unprecedented use of the century-old Espionage Act to indict WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for publishing classified material.

American media outlets regularly publish classified material, even on occasion over the objections of the White House, as a legitimate journalistic exercise in serving the public’s right to know. Previous administrations have conducted leak investigations, and sometimes have charged the alleged leakers, but they have uniformly opted not to prosecute the journalists.

There were some big names in the mix as well.

In statements to The Daily Beast, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet, Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron, Wall Street Journal Editor-in-Chief Matt Murray, and USA Today Editor in Chief Nicole Carroll all sounded the alarm over the Trump administration’s latest attack on the news media, which the president regularly calls “the enemy of the people.”

Baquet called the indictment “a deeply troubling step toward giving the government greater control over what Americans are allowed to know.”

And Baron, noting that government officials regularly over classify documents that pose zero threat to national security, said the indictment “undermines the very purpose of the First Amendment.”

The framing of this debate as an attack against President Trump is purely a “resistance”-minded maneuver, but make no mistake, Assange being charged with espionage is not okay.

Transparency in government is the only certain way to procure and hold freedom, and making disclosures such as Wikileaks’ revelations illegal only furthers our descent into tyranny.

Save conservative media!

Good News: Jobless Claims Drop to 751,000, Which Is A New Pandemic Low

Published

on

Good news in the realm of economics as the number of new applications for unemployment benefits dropped down to 751,000 last week, according to a new report from the Labor Department. This is a the lowest numbers we’ve seen since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The number of actual claims was lower than the 770,000 predicted by economists. via Washington Examiner: Additionally, states reported 359,667 initial claims for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, a new category of eligibility created by the March CARES Act that provides benefits for workers sidelined by the pandemic, such as gig workers whose work dried up. Altogether, then, around 1.1 million workers filed for benefits. Thursday’s release indicates that the labor market is healing, if slowly, but that the situation remains extremely bad by historical standards. In comparison, prior to the pandemic, weekly claims had been running close to 200,000. Another point of comparison would be that weekly claims now are still worse than they were at the depths of the Great Recession in 2009. The total number of people claiming benefits in all programs for the week ending Oct. 10 was more than 22 million. Last year, in the comparable week, that number was 1.4 million. This is fantastic news for our country. We’re finally on the road to recovery after this extremely difficult year. Now, if only we could get folks to stop panicking needlessly about COVID-19 and fighting to keep lockdowns going perpetually, that would be most excellent. While the virus that swept the globe was definitely real and nothing to laugh at, much of the science points to the reaction to the illness being just as bad, if not worse, than the disease itself. Lockdowns almost completely destroyed the economy. The left was thrilled by this because it took away one of…

Sounds peculiar!

During his Wednesday evening show, Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell regarding the Biden crime family. No need to chit-chat. Let’s just get right into it. From Fox News: Tucker didn’t describe the documents other than to say they were damning, and that they came from a new source and related to the Biden crime family. Tucker received word that the documents had been sent to him while he was in LA interviewing Tony Bobulinski for yesterday’s blockbuster interview. He asked his producer in New York to send them to him as quick as he could. Tucker said they used a very comment package courier, one that we would all be familiar with, but that the document never arrived.
