NATO Summit: UK Police Block Access and Detain Ruptly Producer Under ‘Terrorism Act’

A dangerous precedent may have been set yesterday when an accredited journalist and producer for RT’s affiliate news agency Ruptly, was denied entry to yesterday’s NATO Leaders Meeting in north London – before being detained by British police under the Terrorism Act.

UN Syria Shenanigans, OPCW Email Leak, AFP #RussiaGate Fumble

This past week, UK Ambassador to the UN, Karen Pierce chastises Reps from Syria and Russia for accusing the US and UK of ‘fighting on the side of terrorists’ in Syria. However, the lady doth protest too much, methinks, as there’s no shortage of evidence to the contrary. Also, WikiLeaks publishes new leaked email from OPCW which shows the corruption due to US pressure – to produce a report which ‘blamed Assad’ for a non-existent chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria in April of 2018. Meanwhile, the AFP bureau chief…

Pilger: The Lies About Assange Must Stop Now

John Pilger21st Century Wire Newspapers and other media in the United States, Britain and Australia have recently declared a passion for freedom of speech, especially their right to publish freely.  They are worried by the “Assange effect”.   It is as if the struggle of truth-tellers like Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning is now a warning to them: that the thugs who dragged Assange out of the Ecuadorean embassy in April may one day come for them. A common refrain was echoed by the Guardian last week. The extradition of Assange, said the paper, “is not…

The Stalinist Show Trial of Roger Stone

“A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.” ― Alexander Solzhenitsyn In EP 302 of the SUNDAY WIRE radio show, host Patrick Henningsen gives an ‘Ode to Uncle Joe’… Uncle Joe Stalin that is. Last week saw one of the most abominable moments in the history of American justice, and hardly anyone noticed it. A Stalinist show trial for the ages; an abrogation of due process, a gross miscarriage of justice, and a total politicization of America’s justice system. The object of this political theatre wasn’t…

BREAKING: Sweden Drops ‘Rape’ Investigation for Julian Assange

(STOCKHOLM) – For the third time in nine years, Sweden’s prosecution services have dropped an investigation into alleged sexual misconduct, or ‘lesser rape,’ accusations against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Earlier today, the Swedish Prosecution Authority ruled that the alleged victim’s testimony had “weakened” and that there seemed to be no corroborating evidence required to pursue an actual case, much less an indictment. In September, the UN Special Rapporteur on torture, Dr. Nils Melzer, drafted a stern letter to Swedish authorities condemning the international effort being waged by their government and…

DOJ, Brennan Had To Have Assange Arrested, Here’s Why UK Officials Agreed

This explains the entire reason WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested and placed under lock and key, and identifies the vast corruption that pervaded the previous administration. Source:  Georgette Have you wondered why Julian Assange, who has singlehandedly helped expose some of the deepest corruption of the U.S. government, was suddenly arrested a few months ago? The reason is linked to John Durham’s criminal investigation of Russia gate, aka Spy-gate, where the former administration used secret powers to try to influence a presidential election. The Central Intelligence Agency, under John Brennan, was intricately involved in the scandal and attempted…

UK Abuse of Assange Continues: Blocking Spanish Investigation, Caving to US Demands

Nina Cross21st Century Wire By now, it has been well-documented how the UK police, prosecuting services, courts and prisons have squandered untold public resources on one individual who had skipped a police bail order seven years ago.  Search a little deeper and we see countless precedents have been set in the wake of a hunting expedition that is now slowly killing a journalist who exposed the crimes of powerful states.  The abuse of power continues, with the recent attempt to block a Spanish judge from interviewing Julian Assange, founder of…

CN LIVE! Guest Patrick Henningsen on Why Assange Case Must Be Media’s Priority

Slowly but surely, the mainstream media firewall is beginning to fold regarding the mainstream media and political establishment’s silence and complicity in the unlawful detention and treatment of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Recently in Australia, the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives formally approved a group of 11 cross-party MPs committed to returning Assange to Australia. It is still uncertain whether this breakthrough can permeate mainstream UK and US societies. Co-hosts Joe Lauria and Elizabeth Vos speak with guest Patrick Henningsen about what shaping-up to…

Britain’s Unconvicted Prisoner: Keeping Assange on Lockdown for Neocons in Washington

Nina Cross21st Century Wire This article is a second piece focusing on Belmarsh prison, where the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, continues to be arbitrarily detained by the British government.  The first part showed how Belmarsh prison has been systematically denying Assange access to justice by restricting all the means through which he could prepare his defence; access to and possession of legal documents, talking to his US lawyers, restricted meetings with his UK lawyers, and access to a laptop as a basic means to prepare his defence.  These restrictions…
