Assange: ‘People affiliated with our organization have already been assassinated’

wikileakslogo Assange: People affiliated with our organization have already been assassinated

People have died because of their affiliation with secrets website WikiLeaks, according to founder Julian Assange.

In a little-noticed interview with BBC’s John Humphrys, Assange revealed that WikiLeaks is not just facing financial and legal attacks. People associated with the website have actually been assassinated.

Unfortunately, the interviewer did not follow-up and Assange did not provide additional details.

Assange made the startling claim while Humphrys was questioning him about returning to Sweden to face sexual assault accusations.

“Here you are facing, possibly facing, very, very serious charges indeed, double rape even, is a possibility – and you are saying: ‘I will not go back to the country where those offenses are alleged to have been carried out to face the music,'” the BBC host noted.

“No, I have never said that,” Assange replied.

“In that case you can catch the next plane back to Sweden,” Humphrys countered.

“No, I do things according to proper process. I stayed in Sweden for five weeks to enable that proper process to occur. Proper process did not occur,” Assange said.

“I have a serious organization to run. People affiliated with our organization have already been assassinated. My work is serious,” he insisted.

Assange offered no additional details on the alleged assassinations and Humphrys failed to follow up.

The WikiLeaks founder was arrested in London earlier this month on accusations that he sexually assaulted two women. He was freed on bail pending a legal fight over extradition to Sweden.

He claims that during his time in prison, he was forced to listen to shouting from “crazy pedophiles” and lost a tooth when he bit into metal in his food.

After the British newspaper the Guardian published leaked details from the Swedish police report, Assange’s lawyers announced plans to file a lawsuit.

“I do not know who has given these documents to the media, but the purpose can only be one thing — trying to make Julian look bad,” Bjorn Hurtig, Assange’s lead lawyer, told the Australian.

“There has been a selective smear through the disclosure of material,” an unnamed WikiLeaks source told the newspaper. “The timing appears to have been cynically calculated to have the material published in the middle of the bail application and the appeal.”

Sources suggested last week that Karl Rove, George W. Bush’s former political strategist, may have had a hand in the prosecution. One of Assange’s accusers is also thought to have connections to notorious CIA operative Luis Posada Carriles.

The WikiLeaks founder told reporters Saturday that the US may be preparing to indict him on conspiracy charges.

The US Justice Department is hoping to find evidence that Assange encouraged or aided PFC Bradley Manning while the Army private worked to obtain and deliver to WikiLeaks 250,000 State Department cables.

For his part, Assange denies having any contact with Manning.

On Saturday, Bank of America Corp. joined PayPal, Mastercard and Visa in refusing to handle payments for WikiLeaks. Computer giant Apple also took steps this week to remove a WikiLeaks application from it’s iTunes store, but a similar program was still available for phones running Google’s Android operating system.

“It’s a new type of business McCarthyism in the US to deprive this organization of the funds that it needs to survive, to deprive me personally of the funds that my lawyers need to protect me against extradition to the US or to Sweden,” Assange told AFP.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
