I'm just watching and observing. Wondering what's really brewing. Can't say that I'm eager to find out.
I did chuckle at Britain's (alleged) guarantee not to extradite Assange to a country which condones torture and the death penalty.

Tulsi Gabbard, two tour Iraq War veteran, presidential candidate who gets little mention as such in the MSM, talks about the arrest of Julian Assange:
Gabbard has gotten the required number of donations to qualify to be in the Democratic primary Debates. We now must watch to see what is done by the DNC to correct that 'problem.'

A darkness has fallen over the media. Its actions became that of a privatized ministry of propaganda, debasing any chance at a true democratic rule, as secrecy for empire, clothed as patriotism, shunting away any chance to have an informed electorate.
Oaths now play to power, not the Constitution. The law is dealt out in the interest of power, whether to maintain it, expand it, or even punish those who would create an embarrassment for it. But, this has gone on through all my lifetime, as I was born only a few months before the institution of the National Security Act of 1947. John F. Kennedy spoke of the dangers of state secrecy, and he was certainly heard. They can always find their mercenaries, and will offer them a cloak of patriotism and rightness. So, how much longer can the corruption go on? It's not going out on a limb to say it's deeply entrenched.
As Julian was hauled out of the embassy, he held a copy of Gore Vidal's, "History of the National Security State." Might be an interesting read, eh?
What really occurs to me is this: it is not Julian and Chelsea who belong in lockup, but the willing and paid war criminals who were exposed. Or, should we say the helicopter crew (pilot and gunners) their command group, everyone involved should be behind bars, or, were they "only following orders?" I suppose if I could have written those three words with a German accent, it would carry more meaning.
And with the leaked emails, was the crime posting them to prevent their writers from getting away with stealing an American election, or was it releasing something that should by all means affect the informing of the electorate?
In the military, at age seventeen, I swore an oath to the Constitution, not to the national security state or the chain of command. If memory serves, there is some lip service in the UCMJ about "lawful orders." We should all look into our selective memories, or does serving the empire take precedence?
Let's face it, the propaganda war is too important to let the truth flourish. Colin Powell moved up the ranks by token of one early assignment, covering up the Mai Lai Massacre. Had we the Wikileaks version of that, and a subsequent Nuremberg equivalent, we might not have had that Secretary of Defense lie in the faces of the world to let the Project for a New American Century have their collective war crimes.
I'm just a dumb high school dropout, but even I can figure it out. The corruption will not end its own corruption. We all must eventually stand up and think for ourselves, and not let the Ministry of Propaganda tell us what to think.

Jimmy presents an article by Chris Hedges and helps drive home the points, i.e., it's the war crimes, stupid, it's the election stealing, stupid, it's the government (and their contractors) spying on you, stupid, it's the corruption, stupid, etc., etc., etc,. Take the focus off of what Wikileaks has told us, and demonize Julian Assange; this is the op being run on us. Don't listen to the establishment!
