Saying that she had been a “stinker” to Assange when he posted her emails, Sarah Palin said that her feelings changed when she understood him better.

Sarah Palin has been affected directly by Julian Assange’s work, so it is rather amazing that she expressed support for the man when asked about him. Assange has been effectively “disappeared” recently in the Ecuadorian embassy, being cut off from all internet communication. Palin was asked what she thought and she was quite positive about Assange.

The Washington Times reports, “Sarah Palin praises WikiLeak’s Julian Assange; ‘He’s all about freedom.’

Sarah Palin on Thursday expressed her appreciation for WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, notwithstanding his website releasing the Republican politician’s personal emails nearly a decade earlier during her failed campaign for vice president.

The former Alaska governor praised Mr. Assange during an interview […], reversing course after harshly condemning WikiLeaks over its past publications.

“We do have a little bit of history,” Mrs. Palin said with respect to the WikiLeaks chief. “He leaked or published somehow my private emails, and I was so ticked off at him and I thought he was just such a foe — until I started figuring out where he was headed.”

Mr. Assange, Mrs. Palin added, “is trying to provide people with information so that we can make better decisions for our own lives, for our communities, for our country [and] for the world.”

“I’ve been able to really appreciate him more,” Mrs. Palin continued. “I appreciate that he’s all about freedom. He wants people to have information. And that’s power. We need that.”

Cassandra Fairbanks wrote about the incident at the Gateway Pundit: “AMAZING INTERVIEW: Sarah Palin Goes All In Supporting WikiLeaks and Julian Assange (VIDEO).” She contrasted Palin’s reaction to Assange with Clinton’s reaction.

Posobiec asked Sarah Palin how she felt about Julian Assange being stuck in the Ecuadorian embassy in London with no internet and no communication to the outside world.

Palin, unlike Hillary Clinton, holds no ill will towards the publisher. She told Posobiec that Assange simply wants people to have information and that information is power. “We need that,” she said.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
