Julian Assange Lawyer: “It’s Time This Is Ended.”

By Jerry Alatalo

***

“But the whole thing, after all, may be put very simply. I believe it is better to tell the truth than to lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe that it is better to know than to be ignorant.”

– H.L. MENCKEN (1880-1956) American editor, critic, lexicographer

Lawyer for Julian Assange – Jennifer Robinson – talks to “Going Underground” host Afshin Rattansi.

une 19, 2018 marked the 6th year of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange’s detention, his kidnapped-by-government status, at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Any legal arguments by British authorities for not releasing him unconditionally are totally bogus and without merit, yet Mr. Assange remains imprisoned in London, essentially for a flimsiest of bail infractions – associated with a non-existent crime.

It is clear beyond doubt that Julian Assange is an innocent man. That is … unless publishing the truth is now against the law. It is clear beyond doubt that United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, United States President Donald Trump and other world leaders are willing to allow the continued unjust detainment and silencing of Julian Assange, showing the world and humanity that their exercise of power over journalists who expose the dark, illegal practices of their governments is more important than strict adherence to the most basic rules of law and fairness.

Julian Assange is an innocent man. He is an innocent man whose lifetime (or current incarnation if ones holds to the idea of reincarnation) coincides with the rapid rise of the internet as an unprecedented powerful tool for communication among people the world over. Many have utilized the internet to disseminate inconvenient, disturbing and previously secreted facts resulting in millions becoming much more aware of reality on Earth, and Julian Assange – because the facts his media organization WikiLeaks has exposed are to a great extent aggravating and constraining the world’s wealthiest and most powerful criminals – has become the #1 target, the “poster boy” example, for those criminals’ vicious retribution.

Julian Assange’s freedom means the continued exposure of the criminals and the potential end to their criminality, and in particular the crimes related to wars of aggression, identified at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II as the “greatest crime of them all”. One might reasonably suggest that those world leaders who go along with the continued detention of Julian Assange, or fail to speak out for his being released immediately with guaranteed shielding from extra-judicial re-“arrest”, are by their actions identifying themselves as either 1st level, genuine war criminals or, equally as reprehensible, silent accomplices.

The circumstances surrounding Mr. Assange’s 6-years-long, highly publicized, unjust, legally untenable situation are as plain as day for all to see, yet – despite years of time passing since the “case” has actually been thrown out of court – the injustice still stands, the man’s physical, mental and spiritual health are at greater and greater risk with each passing day, and nobody on Earth seems able to make the necessary “executive decision” … of doing the right thing – to simply free Julian Assange.

Ms. May of the United Kingdom, Mr. Trump of the United States, Mr. Turnbull of Australia, Mr. Moreno of Ecuador and those leaders silent in the face of this monumental injustice carried out against Mr. Assange – a man perceived as a genuine, rare hero by millions around the Earth, – might think seriously about the extent to which their recalcitrant stubbornness and persistence in defying the wish of those millions for freeing Assange is inevitably self-defeating.

Those world leaders might seriously consider the profoundly negative consequences of stubbornly rejecting the will of “the people”, and accepting the plain fact that Mr. Assange should rightly and immediately be granted his freedom. Those world leaders might “get the clue”, finally admit the man’s innocence, and acknowledge, then act upon, the wisdom contained in the words of Julian Assange’s lawyer Jennifer Robinson:

“It’s time this is ended.”

9/11 Activists Urge Iran Appeal In U.S. Courts.

By Jerry Alatalo

“A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence.”

– DAVID HUME (1711-1776) Scottish philosopher

he government of Iran has been urged to act quickly to appeal a U.S. court judgment of complicity in the events of 9/11. The urgent invitation was offered by researchers and activists who assert they hold the evidence for overturning the decision. In what most informed observers perceive as a completely irrational, nefarious and politically provocative legal move – and in a process Iran ignored and never engaged with, Iran was eventually “ordered” to pay $6 billion to surviving family members of 9/11 victims. The deadline for Iran’s appeal – should their government decide to challenge the U.S. court system – is only hours away on Wednesday May 30.

Were the Iranians to appeal the decision, long-time determined men and women activists would be feeling added encouragement – after the petition for a Grand Jury was officially served on April 10 in New York City by the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry – that their wish for a new investigation of 9/11 will become reality. The U.S. Attorney in New York has the obligation by law to act upon the petition by the Lawyers Committee, and, should the petition be denied, the Lawyers Committee has the right of pursuing additional legal (mandamus) action making it impossible for the government to block the initiative’s moving forward – effectively forcing the U.S. Attorney to act.

Were Iran to choose the appeal process and accept the extremely strong body of research, facts and evidence of the (currently) over 40 men and women who signed the letter urging Iran to appeal, one could foresee a situation where the global spotlight on 9/11 shines at an unprecedented level since September 11, 2001. One might describe such a development as the lighting of a fuse which leads to the blowing up of the greatest military false flag deception of the 21st century, quite possibly the most decisive and consequential in world history.

While millions around the Earth wish for Iran to appeal and accept the help of researchers, academics, military experts and investigative journalists in challenging the official U.S. government narrative as put forward in the “9/11 Commission Report”, the idea of measuring the magnitude of the decision reveals that instances of such historical importance and enormity are very rare – thus making a correct assessment close to impossible.

One thing is certain. An Iranian appeal would represent and fully entail, among others, the following descriptive terms:

  • Off-the-charts
  • Paradigmatic
  • World-changing
  • Volcanic
  • Stupendous.

The Lawyers Committee For 9/11 Inquiry.

Background

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Congress initiated the “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001″, also known as the “Congressional Joint Inquiry on 9/11”.  It was comprised of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. This was followed in January 2003 by the U.S. Government’s public investigation known as the 9/11 Commission. Their task was to fully investigate and explain what had occurred on 09/11/2001.

Beginning almost immediately and persisting to the present, serious questions have been raised about both the Congressional Joint Inquiry and the 9/11 Commission’s version of events surrounding 9/11.  There has been extensive media coverage of anomalies in the official account, destruction of evidence, obstruction, and even perjury. Many observers, including notably the families of the victims, criticized both inquiries for failing to address hundreds of key questions. An objective analysis, even quoting admissions by members of the investigations, leads to evidence of cover ups.

Given that the events of 9/11/01 has been used to shape U.S. foreign and military policy and ushered in an era of all-encompassing surveillance of all Americans, much more scrutiny and fact-finding is warranted.

Many chapters listing anomalies and problems cited by government officials which illustrate the shortcomings of the official 9/11 Commission’s investigation. Here are just a few facts to consider:

  • Evidence at the scene of the World Trade Center and Pentagon was destroyed or confiscated and withheld from public scrutiny.
  • Evidence given by the CIA to the 9/11 Commission was obtained through torture and is inadmissible.
  • Tapes held by the FAA were destroyed.Eyewitness reports from firefighters, police officers, and other reliable witnesses present in and near the WTC buildings on 9/11 have never been submitted as evidence in a legal action.
  • News reports, most notably from local New York City television stations, containing coverage of loud explosions were never presented as part of any official investigation. A FOIA case has revealed that NIST had made false statements claiming there were no samples of steel from WTC 7 for analysis when a photo that was obtained proves there is a sample.
  • There continues to be thousands of pages of classified documents.  A forensic analysis of physical evidence at the crime scenes has yet to occur.

In a properly functioning judicial system, federal and state attorney generals or special prosecutors would have taken actions to establish all the facts and obtain the fullest measure of justice. The reality has fallen far short of this.

New John Titus Film Exposes Corruption At The Bank For International Settlements.

By Jerry Alatalo

***

“And it occurs to no one that to admit a greatness not commensurate with the standard of right and wrong is merely to admit one’s own nothingness and immeasurable meanness.”

– LEO TOLSTOY (1828-1910) Russian writer

***

ohn Titus’ new documentary film “All the Plenary’s Men” exposes the criminal strategies and operations of the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. The title was likely chosen by the filmmaker to rhyme with, and have the same impact on society as, the Watergate-focused book by investigative journalists Bob Woodward  and Carl Bernstein – “All the President’s Men”. Watergate – in the view of attorney Daniel Sheehan – occurred relative to Richard Nixon’s fears that the Democratic National Committee had information showing President John F. Kennedy was murdered in broad daylight by entities, specifically a hand-picked team of hired assassins, inside the U.S. “deep state”

Mr. Titus’ powerful new film focuses on crimes of a seemingly different quality than the coup d’état of the American government through murdering its democratically elected president. The film exposes how the most powerful and wealthy people on Earth exercise control of governments and populations while covering up massive crimes against humanity with impunity.

Mr. Titus has noted in interviews that “All the Plenary’s Men” is likely the second in a three-part trilogy of films, the first being “The Veneer of Justice in a Kingdom of Crime”. Given “All the Plenary’s Men” should become a worldwide phenomenon and ignite conversations and further in-depth research projects in all nations,  one can say with certainty those powerful private interests controlling the extremely secretive (until now) Bank for International Settlements – known as the “central bank of the world’s central banks” –  are fully aware they have just been hit with a monumental public relations “problem”.

It might be the case that it is almost impossible to overestimate how profoundly serious and important the facts revealed in Mr. Titus’ film “All the Plenary’s Men” are as they relate to the entire human race. The film is truly historic and evokes mental images from the Christian bible of the man called Jesus’ overturning the tables of the money changers, generated by righteous indignation.

While not wishing to categorize John Titus as somehow the “second coming of Christ”, from a spiritual perspective which perceives human evolution as an increasingly rapid revealing and resolving of crimes harming fellow members of the human family, Mr. Titus has provided an effective information tool for (if acted upon) positive societal uplift the world over.

There are times when men and women upon learning historical and persisting facts and realities about how “things” happen on Earth wish they hadn’t. Because of the disturbing nature of the gained awareness they regret coming to know in the first place, and that it would have been preferable and less stressful to remain “in the dark”.

The reality revealed by Mr. Titus is precisely the type of knowledge men and women often feel depressed and frustrated afterward for coming to understand, mainly because one feels impotent or powerless to act on that newly accumulated knowledge.

For those who wish to stay “in the dark” and avoid the stress related to knowing about how the world’s most powerful and wealthy operate, particularly their truly destructive criminality – do not watch “All the Plenary’s Men”.

However, for those who wish to know …

Who owns the so-called “systemically important financial institutions”? …

This blog is devoted to legal, historical and human rights matters, in which issues of general concern are addressed freely and spontaneously. It is intended to further an informal exchange of views in the democratic spirit of freedom of opinion and respect for the opinions of others, in an effort to understand rather than condemn, to propose constructive solutions rather than grandstand. The perspective is both from inside and outside the box and the added value lies more in the questions than in the answers.
