Assange Indictment Would
Threaten the Free Press

Sarah Palin would like to lock Julian Assange away in Guantanamo. But it would be dangerous to prosecute him for breach of secrecy.


WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is currently being sought by Interpol. Not because he elevated disclosure of secrets to a journalistic principle with the help of his media partners, but because he is suspected of improper sexual conduct with two Swedish women. He is wanted for questioning, and it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

The question of whether he will have to answer to U.S. charges that he disclosed classified materials for political motives is a much more difficult one. There’s no doubt that his latest revelations have put American diplomacy in its tightest spot yet. But many are making the best of an embarrassing situation out of the unadorned diplomatic reports about unmasked politicians. Behind the scenes, however, people are angry, enraged and hurt. Little can ever be done to mitigate the damage.

Bumper-Sticker Wisdom from America

The Obama administration is also looking into whether it could indict the WikiLeaks messiah for that as well. Sarah Palin used the opportunity to accuse the White House and the State Department of incompetence and demanded that WikiLeaks and its supporters be treated like al-Qaida terrorists. Off to Guantanamo with Julian Assange?

Such bumper-sticker wisdom doesn’t help the United States one bit. That Assange has an anti-American agenda — via Skype on Wednesday, he called for Hillary Clinton to step down — has hardly been a secret for several months now. Even his own media partners wouldn't deny that he has caused immense political damage. Fortunately, that’s still not just cause for prosecution in a Western democracy.

Incalculable Precedent

The only justification for prosecution the United States has yet been able to come up with is a 1917 law from World War I days that makes the dissemination of secret documents a prosecutable offense. It’s still questionable whether that law would apply to digitized data. There could be a vague possibility that Assange could be indicted if he were proven guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage. But that would create a precedent that would have to apply to investigative journalists like Watergate veteran Bob Woodward, for example. By then, Assange would have a solid phalanx of people on his side who are critical of him today.

It’s not just a problem for WikiLeaks. That’s why it’s less a question of government intervention than it is a necessity for a self-critical examination by those media outlets that have made the Internet ideology of total disclosure into a clever sales strategy and who now wash their hands of the consequences of Assange’s information dump, even as they shed copious crocodile tears over it.

Help Americans Release Political Prisoners

The Purpose Of HARPP

HARPP was started three years ago by David Hinkson in order to lend legal assistance for those having been unjustly incarcerated by an out of control Judicial System. This sewer system has become nothing more then a human collection apparatus for the worlds largest privately operated prison network, or forced labor camp, that depends on our Just Us System for an unending supply of bodies to fill product orders for global markets.

It is unfortunate that Dave Hinskon became one of the very people he set out to help, but such are the times we live in when utter societal decay and ignorance take hold of the masses and opposites become the norm.

If so inclined and want to know the basis for our current system of Gulags, then you must read This Is Why Many Go To Jail, by Lynn Schmaltz, in order to properly appreciate just how completely despicable the whole thing has become.

This site will be adding content on an ongoing basis, along with news briefs concerning David Hinkson, so come back soon and often.

Teddy Roosevelt vs. Corporate America


Image [found here]

The History Channel has some interesting shows on great subjects. I am currently watching one on Teddy Roosevelt's fight against the tyranny of corporate America. Replace "Corporate America" with "International Banksters" and you'll see how this fight is now worldwide.

Check out this short video from the History Channel here, on Teddy Roosevelt's acts to curb the absolute power of corporations. One tycoon, a billionaire, should not be able to hold the rest of America hostage at will. Teddy Roosevelt's, "Square Deal," should be considered for a modern adaptation.

The full series of Teddy Roosevelt videos for a recent episode found here.

I suggest fighting back against the tyranny of the current toll takers [here on my blog]. Check out the link to my main blog, and scroll down to bottom of post for links to video of Dr. Paul Craig Roberts talking about the FBI creating a Police State, and Alex Jones talking about WikiLeaks.org founder Julian Assange.

It is the simplest form of my protest against Connecticut State Police and Judicial Misconduct which ruins lives. The rest of the US may not be any better. Civilian Oversight of Policing and the Courts is a must for a FREE Society.
