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.

Dem Lawmaker Shouts ‘F— Donald Trump’ At Pro-Elizabeth Warren Rally In San Diego (Video)

So very childish!

Democrats. Always on their best behavior. Except when in public. Or at rallies. Or on social media. Or on the internet, in general. Strike that. Dems are hardly ever on their best behavior. For example, via Daily Wire: At a pro-Elizabeth Warren event in San Diego, California, a group of protesters showed up to demonstrate against Warren-backer and California Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) for authoring AB5, a disastrous labor law that has essentially declared war on the state’s gig worker economy. During the event, Gonzalez can be seen delivering a speech, but she momentarily seems to lose her train of thought as the group of protesters shift around and the audience breaks into a chatter. Amidst the pause, someone in the audience can be heard shouting “F*** Donald Trump.” CONTINUED: Gonzalez takes the opportunity to blare the phrase back into the microphone: “F*** Donald Trump!” As Gonzalez regains support, protesters break out in chants condemning the labor law, repeatedly shouting “Repeal AB5,” as the lawmaker’s supporters boo them.

They also look for drinking water from sewers. When the government runs amok and guns are stripped from the citizenry, these are the kinds of results people can expect. When asked if they would trade President Trump for dictator Nicolas Maduro, some people actually said, “yes.” Think about that for a second. How uninformed can a person be? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQO-2fv5mXI#action=share Not only is Warren not likable but she’s simply a bore. Nobody cares what she has to say. Not even her supporters.

CNN Panel Mocks Biden for Now Claiming He Never Said South Carolina Was His ‘Firewall’

Video of the day??

John Salvatore

Published

Former Vice President Joe Biden has an extremely selective memory, especially about things he says that happened or didn’t happen very recently. For example, the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee absolutely, 100%, without a doubt said that he viewed South Carolina as a “firewall” for his campaign. Then, in a recent interview, Biden looked a reporter in the eye and claimed that he never said it – that the reporter said it. He lied. He knew he lied. The reporter knew he was lying. And now, even a CNN panel is mocking him for it. WATCH: https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1232059816392175617?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1232059816392175617&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F From Fox News: Biden had been heavily favored heading into the Feb. 29 contest in the Palmetto State. He has touted his support among black voters, but recent polling suggests he is losing ground among that demographic just days before the primary. […] Biden is tied for third (with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.) in total delegates heading into South Carolina. He trails Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and former South Bend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg. But Biden expressed confidence while addressing supporters following his second-place finish in Nevada. If there is anyone who “doesn’t get it,” it’s Joe. It’s pretty clear from the constant gaffes and flubs and errors and unintentional racist remarks, that the dude isn’t playing with a full deck. Where Joe found the stones to run for president against Donald Trump is anyone’s guess. Biden could’ve sailed off into the sunset, himself and many members of his family a millionaire multiple times over. But some people just love the spotlight too much. When Joe’s team tweets something like this, it proves that they’re out of touch with reality.
