Arguably, he’s the world’s most wanted man. Hated by governments, loved by the common man, Julian Assange seems determined not to go down without a fight. He’s been falsely accused of date rape, espionage, and subverting foreign governments, including the United States.

However, if you ask him, he’ll tell you he’s a journalist who believes governments should be held accountable for their actions. And in his latest Twitter rant, you’ll see why. He takes on his critics and those who want him dead, head on.

In his first tweet on Thursday, Assange addressed the latest accusation that he’s a pedophile. He linked a CNN video clip and tweeted, “On CNN former CIA claims that I am a “pedophile.” Quality work from the folks that gave us Iraq, Libya..” Thus implying the CIA is largely responsible for the proxy wars taking place in the Middle East and Northern Africa.

The video segment showed Phil Mudd, a former CIA analyst, claiming Assange is a pedophile who’s holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy and said, “he’s not credible.” Unfortunately for Mudd, most Americans believe Assange is credible after publishing leaked documents from several sources within the U.S. government who refused to go along with the government’s narratives. In fact, even the current sitting president claimed on the campaign last year that he “loves Wikileaks.”

Exposing the mainstream media’s bias toward him, Assange then tweeted, “Sun newspaper stated that I raped two men then apparently invented a fake journalist to put on the byline.” Indeed, the article does purport to show that a reporter by the name of Holly Christodoulou published the article.


But when reporters confronted The Sun on the story’s apparent inaccuracies, the newspaper then changed the story as well as the author’s name. “Shortly after the correction was published, the article was heavily revised and Christodoulou’s name replaced with the name Eileen Weybridge,” writes Shootthemessenger.

“I love journalism. It’s so accurate and professional. War, peace and the fate of millions ride on it. We’re all in such good hands. Wow!” he tweeted implying it’s not journalists who are starting wars, displacing millions, and leaving a trail of dead in their wake. It’s governments, powerful ones who are willing to go to war over lies about who’s gassing whom.

Wikileaks, not Assange, then retweeted a tweet which shows former president Barack H. Obama, endorsing French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron. The tweet is probably meant to reflect Obama’s condemnation of the alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election by showing the former president openly meddling in France’s election.

“Obama intervenes in election to tell French to vote for Macron after previously ordering CIA to steal parties’ plans,” the tweet reads. Linked to the tweet was the following story. In 2012, under the Obama administration, the CIA was ordered, according to Wikileaks to use all of its available human and electronic assets to retrieve several political parties’ plans for the election.

Wikileaks published the story taken from the leaked CIA Vault 7 documents. They wrote, “All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA’s human (“HUMINT”) and electronic (“SIGINT”) spies in the seven months leading up to France’s 2012 presidential election. The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks as context for its forth coming CIA Vault 7 series. Named specifically as targets are the French Socialist Party (PS), the National Front (FN) and Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) together with current President Francois Hollande, then President Nicolas Sarkozy, current round one presidential front runner Marine Le Pen, and former presidential candidates Martine Aubry and Dominique Strauss-Khan.”

In his next tweet, he openly defied the mainstream media’s narrative. He wrote, “I haven’t been charged, have already been cleared and the UN says I am right. Yes, CNN, I am dismissive.”

Assange is right. He hasn’t been charged with any crimes and he attached another subsequent tweet with a statement from the UN panel exonerating him from all allegations and legal proceedings. His followup tweet was an upload of a court document which asked for the Swedish Government to drop his arrest warrant over the rape case SMS text messages now show was a set-up.

The Washington Times wrote that the court motion was a request for the Swedish government to “drop a long-standing arrest warrant against their client Wednesday so the WikiLeaks publisher may once and for all take refuge in Ecuador in light of a looming U.S. indictment.” As long as there’s an arrest warrant, Assange cannot seek permanent political asylum in Ecuador.

Addressing his rape charges, Assange tweeted Thursday, “The government of Sweden continues to be in breach of the UN’s findings in Assange v Sweden.” He attached a video clip of Christophe Peschoux, spokesperson for the UN’s expert panel investigating Assange. In it, Peschoux called for the UK and Sweden to restore to Assange his liberty and compensate him for the unwarranted charges of rape against the world’s most famous journalist.

Assange then called out Hollywood’s collusion with the American government to create an anti-Assange film called “The Fifth Estate.” He linked his tweet to an interview of his friends who had watched the film and were leaving the theater in shock from the caricature that Assange is some paranoid cult member. A person leaving the film called it “shit” and his friends all agreed, saying it was anything but realistic.

The witch-hunt continues against Assange. As long as he’s alive and relaying to the world how various intelligence agencies are spying on everyone using their own cell phones, smart televisions, and computers, and as long as he’s publishing internal documents from political parties who actively subvert their own candidates, and as long as he publishes military secrets the warmongers want to remain hidden, he’ll always be a marked man.

It doesn’t matter if he gets the political refuge he’s seeking; they’re out to kill him, all for being a journalist.

    All these fucking vampire politicians and security state parasites hate daylight! They’ll do anything to keep the light off of them and keep everybody else with them, in the dark.

      What exactly is he keeping “in the dark”?

      • WeAreYourGods

        Go ahead and re-read my comment, I’m talking about the pols and parasites.

        • permalink

          So you think Julie Assange is a “Shining light on the Hill”?

          He is only in it for himself, just like “All these fucking vampire politicians and security state parasites”…

          • WeAreYourGods

            So I don’t care what Assange is in it for, this isn’t a cult of personality. Prove that just one of the documents Wikileaks has published is either false or fake, and you might make a legitimate argument against the organization. So far, all they have been is an asset. I’m not talking about reading headlines based on the docs, I’m talking about reading the actual docs.

            “this isn’t a cult of personality”


            And nowhere did I say, “documents Wikileaks has published is either false or fake”. You seemed to assumed that…

          • WeAreYourGods

            My mistake was assuming you were making an actual point. You don’t like Assange, OK whatever. I only care about the job he’s doing and the docs leaked. So far, very useful. You have an equivalent, alternative source for leaked government documents? Post a link.

          • permalink

            “You don’t like Assange, OK whatever”

            There you go, **assuming** again…

          • WeAreYourGods

            Still waiting for that link.

            What? A link for you **assuming**…

            What do I look like, “Spock’s Brain”, it’s not my fault you have stupid idea’s.

    He should be the head of the UN. They will have credibility under him.

    • y. Iamu

      No, there should be No UN. We don’t really need a corrupt one world order.

      • David Daisy May Boldock

        The idea that UN commitments should be followed by action is indeed a radical one, especially for the United States, where wilful neglect of its own commitments is the rule.

  • banneduser

    assange says he is annoyed by anyone who disagrees with the official account of 9/11. he is the last person i would listen to about anything.

  • y. Iamu

    It’s my understanding the Swedish rape law he is being accused of breaking is for having consensual sex but he claims to have on two occasions worn a condom that broke and his accusers claim he broke them on purpose. It is my understanding in Sweden you must have consent not to wear protection or it comes under the rape heading.
    These claims were made after he delivered his first large leak and was desperately wanted to be held by governments around the world.
    It may be he was breaking the condoms or it may have been perished condoms who knows. One thing is for sure there are governments around the world that would like to liquidate him and you only have to guess what lengths they would go to to do that.

  • Lorne Allen

    Phil Mudd is trash in my opinion. He in effect uses the abuse of children to his own advantage when he slanders someone with false accusations of pedophilia.

    • Ed Schrade

      Whether or not someone likes the man or not, he did reveal the illegal spying on all American citizens by our own government. As far as him leaking top secret information that was devastating to our safety, I have only seen accusations and no evidence. Maybe he did but I would have to have evidence before I could believe this. Approach it like you are on a jury. Take no ones word unless backed up by evidence.

  • The fact that CNN is allowing that mentally deficient former CIA henchman to make such claims on their network speaks volumes about the kind of news network they are (absolute garbage). Nowhere at any time have I seen any mention that Julian Assange is a paedophile and for Phil Mudd to make that accusation on a broken third rate news network reveals the level of downright lies these people will stoop to.

    If this information is from Julian then I’m not sure it is reliable. Start an investigation with special investigator.
