Comedian Thrown Out of White House Press Dinner for Supporting ‘Heroic’ Assange

Comedian Thrown Out of White House Press Dinner for Supporting ‘Heroic’ Assange:

Randy Credico, an activist, comedian and former director of the William Moses Kunstler Fund for Racial Justice, was unceremoniously thrown out of the White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD) this weekend after voicing his call for freedom for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

“I’ve done Yahoo News’ radio show so they just invited me to the WHCD because I’m a harmless guy and I’m a comedian, too. I had a great time the first two hours. I went from one party to the next and there was an open bar and open food,” Credico told Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear about the annual WHCA dinner, a Washington, DC, tradition normally attended by both the president and vice president, along with their wives and close advisers and, of course, the Washington press.

John Pilger: ‘Silencing Assange is Part of Aggressive US-UK War on Free Speech’

John Pilger: ‘Silencing Assange is Part of Aggressive US-UK War on Free Speech’:

The following is an interview with award-winning international journalist John advocating here on behalf of Wikileak’s founder Julian Assange – who has been arbitrarily detained for the last 5 years in the basement of Ecuadorian embassy in London. Under pressure from the US and UK governments, the Ecuadorian government has now cut off Assange’s communications with the outside world. 

“Julian Assange his organization WikiLeaks have done so much to expose the true nature of this war – the rapacious side to this war, and the dangers that it presents. Silencing him, taking away this basic freedom of speech is part of that. It’s part of the propaganda war.”

“That’s what this propaganda war is about – it is a war on speaking out. It is a war on dissent… it’s a war on journalism and it requires collaborators like in The Guardian.”

“Dumb F–ks”: Julian Assange Reminds Us What Mark Zuckerberg Thinks Of Facebook Users:

Julian Assange fired off a tweet Friday afternoon reminding people of the time Mark Zuckerberg called his users “Dumb fucks” because they trusted him with their private information.

Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard

Zuck: Just ask.

Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS

[Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?

Zuck: People just submitted it.

Zuck: I don’t know why.

Zuck: They “trust me”

Assange Lashes Out: “Hypocritical Motherf*ckers… Remember How I Exposed Your Secret Deal With The Saudis”

Assange Lashes Out: “Hypocritical Motherf*ckers… Remember How I Exposed Your Secret Deal With The Saudis”:

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange lashed out at the UK government over Twitter on Friday after Britain’s official UN account (UK Mission to the United Nations) tweeted “A free and independent media fulfils a vital role in holding the powerful to account and giving a voice to the powerless,” with a link to a puff piece waxing eloquent over the UK’s commitment to free speech.

Assange – apparently not included in the UK’s definition of “free and independent media” (facing arrest and detention should he leave the Embassy), fired off a stunning reply – claiming that the UK’s has spent roughly twice as much spying on him as it has on their entire international human rights program.

“And that is exactly why you have detained me without charge for eight years in violation of two UN rulings and spent over 20 million pounds spying on me you hypocritical mother fuckers. Your entire international human rights programme is £10.6m you pathetic frauds.”

Assange then followed up with “Remember how I exposed your secret deal to put Saudi Arabia on the Human Rights Council?” referring to a 2015 vote-trading deal in which the UK approached Saudi Arabia in secret, promising it a seat on the UN Human Rights Council in exchange for council support.

Assange Tweets Famous Chess Match Depicting “Safe White King” One Day After Ecuador Grants Citizenship

Assange Tweets Famous Chess Match Depicting “Safe White King” One Day After Ecuador Grants Citizenship:

One day after Julian Assange was granted Ecuadorian citizenship, the Wikileaks founder tweeted a cryptic picture of a famous 1918 chess match in which Cuban chess master José Raúl Capablanca defeats U.S. champion Frank Marshall using a pawn.

The move which Assange tweets can be seen below at approximately 7:14, in which the narrator says “And the white king is finally feeling safe.”

Theories naturally began to swirl in various corners of the internet, with some suggesting Assange’s tweet is a message to his followers that he, “the White King” is safe. Others took the “white king” to mean President Trump – who is well protected while a pawn is used to win the match.

Ecuador grants nationality to WikiLeaks founder

Ecuador grants nationality to WikiLeaks founder:

QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — Ecuador has granted citizenship to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after more than five years of living in asylum at the nation’s embassy in London, officials announced Thursday.

H/t reader squodgy:

“Presumably this allows him safe transit to Ecuador where a US/Clinton hit team will quietly erase him.

His second who helped design his info gathering machine, died mysteriously this week

Fortunately his success in exposing the corrupt & the liars will hopefully create many offspring.”
