Whistle-blower Julian Assange, who has been charged with 18 felony counts by the Trump administration, is in grave condition at Belmarsh prison as his health is deteriorating rapidly.
His world-renowned journalism organization, WikiLeaks, released the following tweet yesterday updating their followers on the status of Assange:

At the present time, Assange is serving a 50-week sentence in a British prison for the alleged crime of skipping bail. He was detained because Ecuador finally gave him up after granting him asylum in the British embassy for many years.
The U.S. has charged Assange with 17 felony counts under the Espionage Act and an additional unsealed felony charge. It is widely believed that emails from Hillary Clinton and the DNC published by WikILeaks in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election helped seal Donald Trump’s victory.
While the deep state wants to paint Assange as a criminal actor and a subversive enemy of the state, he has released a tremendous amount of information that has exposed government and private corruption that would have been otherwise ignored by the fake news media.
Cassandra Fairbanks, one of the last journalists to actually meet with Assange, appeared on the One America News Network to discuss what is happening to the whistle-blower:

Free speech advocates on the Left and the Right are up in arms about the mistreatment of Assange and the precedent his prosecution may set against the 1st Amendment. The Trump administration is attempting to extradite him to the U.S. so he can be formally charged in the court of law.
The Vichy journalists of the MSM have finally taken fright that the monstrous US charges against Julian #Assange are now a threat to them. Yet the cowards at the NYT, the Guardian etc continue to smear this heroic man who shamed them by refusing to join their gatekeepers' club.

Between exposing massive US war crimes & then committing the even-worse sin of publishing docs harmful to Hillary & the DNC, Julian Assange is so despised in the west that even slowly torturing him to death with no medical care – what's been happening – is viewed as justified: https://t.co/C6lKHzj034

US Empire wants to set an example with Wikileaks, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning.
They say to whistleblowers and journalists that if you reveal our secrets we will destroy you.
If you want to know the truth you must defend the truth-tellers. Do something. Now is the time.

President Donald Trump was once a big fan of WikiLeaks back when their disclosures helped him on the campaign trail.
Now, he acts like he’s never even heard of Assange and WikiLeaks when questioned by reporters.
With Assange being in such poor condition that he reportedly cannot engage in a simple conversation with his attorney, It is possible Assange doesn’t even survive extradition. Perhaps that is what the deep state would like to have happen.
Italian Nationalist Leader Matteo Salvini Could Face Up to 15 Years in Prison for Rejecting Migrants
The Italian deep state is after Salvini.
Italian nationalist leader and former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini could face up to 15 years in prison for rejecting third-world migrants as the country’s deep state takes aim at the populist firebrand.
The Italian Senate voted 149-141 last week to remove parliamentary immunity for Salvini. This will allow the Italian deep state to charge Salvini for his decision as Interior Minister to detain third-world migrants at sea who were trying to land on Italian shores.
“If anyone thinks the are going to scare me with a politically-motivated trial, you’ve got the wrong man,” Salvini said to the Senate before the vote.
Additionally, prosecutors in the city of Palermo are accusing Salvini of overreach for not allowing 80 migrants to disembark from a trafficking boat. Salvini remains completely defiant in the face of potential charges.
“Defending Italy is not a crime. I am proud of it, I would do it again, and I will do it again,” Salvini said last week.
Political analyst Franco Pavoncello said that the charges could backfire and put Salvini back into the limelight. The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the momentum of Salvini and his League party because they have not been able to hold large rallies due to the added restrictions.
“At the moment Salvini generates little media interest. The decision to strip him of his immunity would re-open the case and could whip up media attention,” Pavoncello said to AFP.
“Those who vote to send him to trial in a bid to create political problems for him could end up giving him the limelight instead,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on how Salvini remains a political force in Italy even after he was forced out of power by his former coalition partners:
The leader of Italy’s League Party, Matteo Salvini, was recently ousted from his position as the nation’s Interior Minister after the Five Star Movement betrayed him and allied with the globalist establishment last month.
But the anti-migrant, pro-nationalist leader is down but not out. A massive rally was held in Salvini’s honor on Sunday where he vowed that he “will never give up” on his fight against European Union (EU) globalists.
Salvini told the “traitors” in the new government that he would come for his rightful spot at he helm of the nation the before long.
“Those who thought that I would be worn out and need a break, I give my word of honor, I will work even more than before,” he told the audience.
“I won’t give up because our country deserves everything. I’d rather concede seven ministry posts to traitors now, that we will win back with interest and transparency in a few months,” Salvini added.
The League estimated that 80,000 supporters rallied on behalf of their leader in Pontida, which has significance to the nationalist League Party because it was the site where medieval leaders took a legendary oath to repel a foreign emperor.
Salvini’s supporters were emboldened by the rally where their leader called for a peaceful and democratic revolution in Italy against the coup attempt that drove him from power.
“I like Salvini because he is the only one that fights the idea of a European Union, which I do not support, because I believe the European bureaucrats do not do Italy any good,” said Luca Carminati, a laborer fears his job will be lost due to massive taxation and regulation imposed by globalist bureaucrats.
“Salvini fights that idea. He is trying to give value to the Italian people again,” Carminati added.
A new coalition between the Five Star Movement and the establishment socialists of the Democratic Party rules over Italy for the time being. A recent survey published by the il Sole 24 Ore newspaper reports that 55 percent of Italians disapprove of the new coalition, while Salvini’s party remains the most popular in the country with 34 percent of support of Italians.
Similar to the cases of U.S. President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, Salvini is being persecuted by the deep state of his country for standing with his people against globalism.
