Ecuador President Rafael “We Are Not A Colony” Correa Stands Up To The Jackbooted British Gestapo

A coward dies many deaths; a brave man dies but once.

The once proud British government, now reduced to Washington’s servile whore, put on its Gestapo Jackboots and declared that if the Ecuadorean Embassy in London did not hand over WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, British storm troopers would invade the embassy with military force and drag Assange out. Ecuador stood its ground.

“We want to be very clear, we are not a British colony,” declared Ecuador’s Foreign Minister. Far from being intimidated the President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, replied to the threat by granting Assange political asylum. (Source)

The once law-abiding British government had no shame in announcing that it would violate the Vienna Convention and assault the Ecuadorean Embassy, just as the Islamic students in the 1979 Khomeini Revolution in Iran took over the US Embassy and held the diplomatic staff captive. Pushed by their Washington overlords, the Brits have resorted to the tactics of a pariah state. Maybe we should be worried about British nuclear weapons.

Let’s be clear, Assange is not a fugitive from justice. He has not been charged with any crime in any country. He has not raped any women. There are no indictments pending in any court, and as no charges have been brought against him, there is no validity to the Swedish extradition request. It is not normal for people to be extradited for questioning, especially when, as in Assange’s case, he expressed his complete cooperation with being questioned a second time by Swedish officials in London.

What is this all about? First, according to news reports, Assange was picked up by two celebrity-hunting Swedish women who took him home to their beds. Later for reasons unknown, one complained that he had not used a condom, and the other complained that she had offered one helping, but he had taken two. A Swedish prosecutor looked into the case, found that there was nothing to it, and dismissed the case.

Assange left for England. Then another Swedish prosecutor, a woman, claiming what authority I do not know, reopened the case and issued an extradition order for Assange. This is such an unusual procedure that it worked its way through the entire British court system to the Supreme Court and then back to the Supreme Court on appeal. In the end British “justice” did what the Washington overlord ordered and came down on the side of the strange extradition request.

Assange, realizing that the Swedish government was going to turn him over to Washington to be held in indefinite detention, tortured, and framed as a spy, sought protection from the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. As corrupt as the British are, the UK government was unwilling to release Assange directly to Washington. By turning him over to Sweden, the British could feel that their hands were clean.

Sweden, formerly an honorable country like Canada once was where American war resisters could seek asylum, has been suborned and brought under Washington’s thumb. Recently, Swedish diplomats were expelled from Belarus where they seem to have been involved in helping Washington orchestrate a “color revolution” as Washington keeps attempting to extend its bases and puppet states deeper into traditional Russia.

The entire world, including Washington’s servile puppet states, understands that once Assange is in Swedish hands, Washington will deliver an extradition order, with which Sweden, unlike the British, would comply.

Regardless, Ecuador understands this. The Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino announced that Ecuador granted Assange asylum because “there are indications to presume that there could be political persecution.” In the US, Patino acknowledged, Assange would not get a fair trial and could face the death penalty in a trumped up case.

The US Puppet State of Great (sic) Britain announced that Assange would not be permitted to leave Britain. So much for the British government’s defense of law and human rights. If the British do not invade the Ecuadorean Embassy and drag Assange out dead or in chains, the British position is that Assange will live out his life inside the London Embassy of Ecuador. According to the New York Times, Assange’s asylum leaves him “with protection from arrest only on Ecuadorean territory (which includes the embassy). To leave the embassy for Ecuador, he would need cooperation that Britain has said it will not offer.” When it comes to Washington’s money or behaving honorably in accordance with international law, the British government comes down on the side of money.

The Anglo-American world, which pretends to be the moral face of humanity has now revealed for all to see that under the mask is the face of the Gestapo.

What I dont get is that people seem to think Assange stole US secretes, witch is not the case. HE simply facilitated the transfer of the document and published them like any other journalist would do. What he did is no different from the mainstream new outlets who published what he exposed. Why is the US not going after CNN of FOX for writing articles and releasing information from wikileaks?

People want the TRUTH! Assange is a
saint n hero to the world's awakening.

Viva la Ecuador!

Too much theater here in the continuing Assange soap opera. The alternative media has been too timid in asking hard questions about Assange's role with Wikileaks in creating the Arab Springs to provide cover for globalist directed regime change.

When Assange and Wikileaks first emerged he was courted very favorably by the Establishment MSM, that alone is very telling. While it is likely the case that most or many who were involved with Wikileaks in subordinate roles were good people trying to do the right thing, it is clear that Wikileaks never revealed devastating information and much of it was akin to the National Esquire with embarrassing revelations about Khadafi and Putin. We mostly got a series of limited hangouts.

Then there is the problem of Assange rejecting the 9/11 Truth movement despite the fact that the 9/11 false flag was the fulcrum event launching the global war on terror, the formal creation of the police state, and massive scale financial looting.

Assange had many globalist ties and his lawyer worked for the Rothschilds. Some of the Assange quotes unearthed by the intrepid Lila Rajiva were quite telling as to Assange's true loyalties. We also have the astute analyses of Drs. Michel Chossudovsky and Webster Tarpley that Assange and Wikileaks have all the markings of a slick globalist psyop.

We should expect these kinds of operations given how vast and well funded Mockingbird was more than fifty years ago. Now TPTB have much more at stake and are far more organized.

USA: land of the free and home of the brave.

And, from an Ecuadoran leader comes: >>In the US, Patino acknowledged, Assange would not get a fair trial and could face the death penalty in a trumped up case.<<

Maybe he was thinking of the treatment that Bradley Manning has received in the land of timely and fair trials:

>>The Speedy Trial Clause of the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that "[i]n all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy . . . trial . . . ."[1] The Clause protects the defendant from delay between the presentation of the indictment or similar charging instrument and the beginning of trial.>> Wikipedia

Or, maybe he was thinking about the still uncharged, prisoners still lingering in Guantanamo almost 11 years later.

Or, maybe even he was thinking about a provision
of the NDAA law, currently being appealed, which allows the president, at a wave of his hand, to indefinitely detain any citizen of the world without charge, legal representation or a fair trial of his peers.

We, the people, are no longer free, but we need to be brave, stand up and get in the face of these homegrown and imported tyrants.

^Nice to see the Feds postings today.

It's so cute to see a once-great, but now tired old empire do the barking for the new empire. And it's even better to see Ecuador stand up to this criminal syndicate, who is obviously desperate to silence any dissemination of actual news. I think the next step is to appoint Assange as a diplomat of Ecuador, and then fly him out of the country under diplomatic cover.


p.s. and by the way, to any other Feds posting here....go fuck yourself.

RE: The "criminal syndicate is obviously desperate to silence any dissemination of actual news". Don't we wish they were desperate? They utterly control all major forms of print and televised news. The only way to get the facts is to spend a great percentage of our time digging through information on the internet and well chosen books. How many people will do this? Very very few, I'm afraid.

During the rare events when the general public does get a whiff that there is a glitch in the matrix, massive amounts of information and disinformation are released further obscuring what's really happening while other items are shoved down the memory hole. Not unlike the point made by the character Jedburgh in the movie Edge of Darkness - art very closely imitating life.

Here are some fitting quotes I recently came across in Peter Janney's excellent new book Mary's Mosaic (about the CIA's conspiracy to murder JFK and Mary Pinchot Meyer):

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth: Not going all the way, and not starting. - The Buddha

The only new thing in this world is the history you don't know. - Harry Truman

Great article the only thing I would suggest is that the US and UK both work for the same masters

As a Brit I applaud Ecuador. It is galling to see our sychophantic Foreign Secretary William Hague threaten to overturn diplomatic protocols and raid an embassy. It's a pity he doesn't have the spine to tell the US where to get off instead.
Seeing him and Hillary Clinton together it is obvious she doesn't like him, and as her puppet, with no strings visible, the pained look on his face indicates he's a glove-puppet.

UK may raid Ecuador Embassy in London but who are they actually after?

The U.S. has been a colony of Britain since 1812 when they burned down the White House in order to destroy the "People's" Constitution. It is an incredibly dangerous precedent when Britain can get away with so much tyranny without the people of the U.S. ever being the wiser. What is being created is a monumental scapegoating of the U.S. and her citizens who's Trojan Horse Federal Reserve, privately held IRS, FEMA camps and guillotines speak volumes as to the intentions of the world's governments to make the people a Satanic Sacrifice to the alien architects of this debacle. This is being done through the Ashkenazim policies of the City of London and it's arm of tyranny MI6 who controls both the CIA, FBI and Moussed. Wake up Britain is the puppet master and it's time the blame got put where it belongs so that the rest of the world will know that the American people have been highjacked to feed the Vampire hoards of the COSMOS!

Assange is clearly CIA/Mossad.

His job is to keep the anarchist/anti-globalist crowd (especially the younger, more naive ones) following his every move so that they misread what's actually going on and are directed where the state wishes them to be directed.

One doesn't even to have read the analyses by Chossudovsky, Rajiva, Tarpley et al., although they help to complete the picture.

Real activists like Daniel Brandt are soon pushed off the stage, attacked or discredited.
These colorful sock puppets, like Assange, Pussy Riot get immediate celebrity status and mass following for their juvenile antics that impress no one but the well-fed bored citizenry of the first world countries. For them activism is costumes, t-shirts, mugs, slogans, lecture and book signings.

Careerism, mass marketing, and making a buck - nothing more.
