Julian Assange—the True Hero of 2016
The moment I learned FBI Director James Comey had let Hillary Clinton off from her email scandal a second time, I thought of the following interchange between WikiLeaks' Julian Assange and interviewer John Pilger published only one day before:
JP: You get complaints from people saying, ‘What is WikiLeaks doing? Are they trying to put Trump in the Whitehouse?’
JA: My answer is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he's had every establishment off his side; Trump doesn’t have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment, but banks, intelligence [agencies], arms companies... big foreign money … are all united behind Hillary Clinton, and the media as well, media owners and even journalists themselves.
It's almost as if this was all planned. Six hundred fifty thousand emails turn up on Anthony Weiner's laptop. Some "rogue" characters at the NYPD say there's something there. Comey is forced to reopen the case, creating consternation, and then closes it again in a week, 650K emails having been examined faster than less than half that number were vetted in well over a year.
All this on a day we learned that Hillary Clinton was sharing classified information with her maid! (We also learned, via Assange, that Saudi Arabia and Qatar funded both the Clinton Foundation and ISIS.)
As some guy we used to study in college until PC came along and he was dropped as a requirement from the syllabus wrote long ago, "Something is rotten in the state of... America." (Well, not America, but you know the story.)
The question is—does this last minute Comey demurral make a difference? What percentage of the American public will change its view less than two days before polls open? My guess is not many, especially since the circumstances are so suspect. The mainstream media will blather on about how this may once again be a game-changer, but at this point the public is largely ignoring them. Few see them as other than propagandists, choosing to report what they wish and distort what they wish.
Meanwhile, the true hero of this election is the mainstream media's polar opposite, Julian Assange, the man whose life is literally endangered while living under virtual house arrest in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. It is he—and his organization—who truly reports the news undistorted and unbiased through undisputed primary sources. It is he who has revealed to our country and the world how power works.
