Truth Is Treason In An Empire of Lies



The issue, as I understand the actual charge, is that Assange actively helped Chelsea Manning hack the govt computer in order to get the documents he then published. I think it's correct that that is illegal, and apparently they have some evidence that shows Assange took a part-password from Manning and either he himself broke it or got a black hat to crack the rest.

Otoh, that may be a pretext just to get him over here, and lots more may be ready to rain down. I guess we'll see. But reportedly they've avoided any taint of 1st Amendment issues in the actual indictment.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Of course. That's because only republicans are dishonest.

Be patient, only 5 1/2 years to go. The
real question is, will Pence be on the
ticket next year. They want somebody
they can run in 2024, and that ain't
Pence.
