Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, has been sentenced to 50 weeks in prison for skipping bail in the United Kingdom in 2012.
Judge Deborah Taylor declared that Assange should serve the maximum sentence of one year given the gravity of his offense.
Taylor rejected Assange’s claim for leniency because of the time he spent, seven years, in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
CBC reports that Assange stood still with his hands clasped as his sentence was read at London’s Southwark Crown Court.
Attorney Mark Summers read a letter in which Assange admitted that he was “struggling with terrifying circumstances” and did he what he thought best. The journalist “apologized unreservedly” in a letter that was read to the court, but this was not enough to sway the judge.
Taylor said, “By hiding in the embassy you deliberately put yourself out of reach, while remaining in the UK… In so doing, you exploited your privileged position to flout the law.”
Assange supporters in the public gallery chanted “no justice in the UK” and “shame on you” at the judge while police called for reinforcements.
Assange’s arrest on April 11, 2019, was a highly publicized affair that received a polarizing response in political circles.
BLP reported on neoconservatives and their neoliberal counterparts cheering Assange’s arrest, deriding him as a subversive for his decision to expose some of the more unsavory aspects of the military-industrial complex and the politicians who wage never-ending wars.
America First supporters like Cassandra Fairbanks were disappointed in Trump’s lack of support for the Wikileaks founder throughout his arrest.

Assange and his leaks arguably played a huge role in getting Trump elected.
Former Deep State Critter Connected to Joe Biden Hints at Wanting to Assassinate Alex Jones
Revolver News reported that Zachery Tyson Brown, who was employed at the Office of the Secretary of Defense not too long ago, went on Linkedin to hint at giving Alex Jones the Anwar al-Awlaki treatment. Basically, he floated the idea of having Jones be assassinated by the U.S. government.
He wrote on Linkedin::
We killed Anwar al Awlaki for stuff like this.
A surge of right-wing terrorism is just waiting to be unleashed on this country, and the government must be prepared to crack down on the prion disease that’s been allowed to spread too far.
Brown shared a link to the left-wing smear merchant outfit “Right Wing Watch”, which receives funding from George Soros.
A screenshot of Brown’s post can be found here:
Anwar al-Awlaki was an Islamic terrorist and U.S. citizen that the Obama administration assassinated via drone bomb. He was connected to multiple terrorist plots in the United States and United Kingdom, which included an attempt to blow up a Detroit bound jetliner. Al-Awlaki built his reputation through his various online sermons and propaganda videos that turned him into one of Al-Qaeda’s most prominent personalities
The U.S. government placed Awlaki on its official targeted-killing list, which President Barack Obama authorized, and the National Security Council approved. Under this designation, Awlaki was deemed a military enemy of the U.S., despite being a U.S. citizen. On September 30, 2011, the Central Intelligence Agency used two drones to kill Awlaki and Samir Khan, another American al-Qaeda member.
As of July, Tyson Brown was employed in the Trump administration at the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
Deep Staters don’t like any expression of free speech that comes from the Dissident Right, so they work to find ways to muzzle it shut.
Individuals like Brown would like nothing more than to have Joe Biden at the helm along with a Democrat-controlled Congress to more easily push hate speech laws and other ways to clamp down on speech from effective dissident figures.
