Assange Wins Case Against Extradition To US

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will not be extradited to the US after a shock ruling in his favour at London’s Old Bailey courthouse.

District Judge Vanessa Baraitser ruled that extradition at this point to the US to face 18 counts of espionage would worsen Assange’s already extremely fragile mental state.

“Faced with conditions of near total isolation … I am satisfied that the procedures (outline by U.S. authorities) will not prevent Mr. Assange from finding a way to commit suicide,” she said.

In September, psychiatrist Michael Kopelman testified that Assange has “begun making preparations to end his own life including confessing to a Catholic priest, drafting farewell letters to his family and drafting a will.”

Since his dramatic arrest at the Ecuadorian Embassy in April 2019, Assange has been languishing in Belmarsh, a notoriously horrid maximum security prison housing murderers and terrorists. For much of the time Assange has been kept heavily medicated in solitary confinement.

During the conclusion of today’s hearing, the judge ruled however that freedom of speech rights do not provide “unfettered discretion by Mr Assange to decide what he’s going to publish”.

The judge added Assanges activities went far beyond “encouraging a journalist,” and do constitute ‘conspiracy’ to hack US government computers.

The New York Times described the ruling as “…a major victory against the U.S. authorities who have accused him of conspiring to hack government computers and violating the Espionage Act with the release of confidential communications in 2010 and 2011.”

Assange supporters gathered outside the court celebrated the ruling:

The US now has 15 days to appeal the ruling. Given that the judge did validate the prosecution’s case against Assange, it is expected that the US legal team will now try to argue that Assange’s risk of suicide is not as heightened as the defence has suggested.

Following a remarkable exchange a fortnight ago when U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was laughed out of the room by a Communist Chinese delegation for attempting to scold them on human rights abuses, he has now declared that China is right to criticise America’s record on the issue.

Blinken told reporters Tuesday that China was right to claim that the U.S. is guilty of rights abuses against minorities.

“We will hear from some countries, as we do other years, that we have no right to criticize them because we have our own challenges to deal with,” Blinken stated during a press briefing on the release of the State Department’s Report on Human Rights.

“Well, we know we have work to do at home that includes addressing profound inequities, including systemic racism,” he added.

“We don’t pretend these problems don’t exist or try to sweep them under the rug. We don’t ignore them. We deal with them in the daylight with full transparency,” Blinken further stated.

“The way we confront our challenges at home will give us greater legitimacy in advocating for human rights abroad,” he added.

The Secretary of State there agreeing with the CCP that America is the one in the wrong, while Communist China rounds up people and throws them into internment camps because of their religion, as well as subjecting people to forced sterilization and abortions, slave labour and live organ harvesting.

That’s what happens when this guy is heading up foreign diplomacy.

The full briefing is below:

Blinken also suggested this week that the United States won’t take any punitive action against China for its role in unleashing COVID-19 pandemic upon the world.

China has also released its own version of a human rights report, charging that State’s rights in the U.S. is a human rights abuse, as well as citing George Floyd as an example of how America is deeply racist.

Leaked Letter: Global Transport Body Pushing Standardised Vaccine Passport on EU

IATA lobbying for “governments and authorities” to accept their vaccine passport framework

A leaked internal document reveals that the world’s largest air transport body is imploring the EU to adopt its vaccine passport system as standard across the entire 27 nation bloc, to ensure “evidence-based border restrictions” are implemented.

EURACTIV reports that the letter was sent to EU leaders by The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which has been pushing its vaccine statues based Travel Pass framework for some time now.

The letter, signed by IATA vice-president for Europe Rafael Schvartzman and addressed to European Council president Charles Michel, urges EU countries to “agree on the crucial role of secure digital solutions, such as the IATA Travel Pass”.

the letter argues that the travel pass will provide “governments and authorities – but also passengers and crew – with the needed confidence in each passengers’ health status”.

“This digital solution can verify the applicable legal framework at departure and arrival jurisdictions… ensuring that the traveller knows all the measures and conditions applicable,” the letter further reads.

It further suggests that countries need to agree to a “sane” approach to lifting travel restrictions, ensuring an “attainable balance between risk and people/economies’ financial sustainability.”

The leaked letter was obtained just hours before the EU is set to debate the vaccine passport system, with countries including Italy, Greece, Spain, and Portugal acting as the most aggressive proponents for a standardised vaccine passport system to kickstart tourism again.

Vaccine passports have previously been touted by the EU, with officials suggesting back in April that visa applicants would also be required to be vaccinated.

EU countries including SpainEstoniaIcelandDenmarkPoland, and Belgium have all indicated that they are open to some form of vaccine passports, as well as sharing the data across borders.

A slew of other countries have also now indicated that they will introduce vaccination passports, despite concerns that it will create a two-tear society of those who have and have not been vaccinated.

After months of denying there are any plans to introduce so called vaccine passports, the British government has also now admitted that not only is it considering introducing them for travel, but also merely to gain access to events spaces, and even shops and pubs.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is seemingly resistant to introducing the scheme, but is being hounded by proponents to adopt it, and has promised a review.

Former Prime Minister, and arch globalist, Tony Blair has renewed his push for Britain to implement a standardised global vaccine passport while the country has the G7 Presidency.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Blair urged “We should plan for an agreed ‘passport’ now. The arguments against it really don’t add up.”

“The world is moving in this direction,” Blair added, saying that he “can’t see another way of this.”

“With my team at the Institute for Global Change, I have looked at this from every angle and come to this conclusion: there is no prospect of a return to anything like normal without enabling people to show their Covid status, whether that means they have been vaccinated or recently tested,” Blair proclaimed.

Blair also revealed that he is working with the World Economic Forum on its CommonPass initiative, a COVID passport scheme being pushed by a coalition of Big Tech companies, and that has received funding from the Rockefeller Foundation. The CommonPass is already being implemented by all three major airline alliances.

Blair previously declared that vaccine passports are inevitable and that “It’s going to be a new world altogether.”
