WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange turned 50 years old behind bars this weekend as he is charged under the Espionage Act for exposing corporate and government crimes.
Assange has been crucified even as President-imposed Joe Biden and his regime-friendly propagandists act as if journalistic freedom has been liberated now that Trump is out of office. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Dissident left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald has made note of the tremendous hypocrisy from an empire that is spiraling out of control toward madness:
Julian Assange, responsible for breaking more major stories than his journalist-critics combined, turns 50 today — in prison.
He's in prison for one reason: the Biden Admin and most of the corporate press don't care about press freedoms, but only pretend to when convenient. pic.twitter.com/AI0IesCsCa

Liberty Conservative News has reported about Assange’s torture and railroading, which began during the Trump administration and then has continued and intensified after Biden assumed power:
“WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s legal team is outraged that they are being denied access to key evidence as they attempt to prove their client’s innocence in the British court of law.
Assange attorney Gareth Peirce also claims that she has not been able to spend adequate time with her client, who is being detained in the Belmarsh facility in Britain. He is being held there as the U.S. attempts to extradite him to the states in order to charge him with 18 felony counts.
“We have pushed Belmarsh in every way – it is a breach of a defendant’s rights,” Pierce said.
Nils Melzer, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on torture, has also spoken out about the treatment of Assange, who is being brutalized during his show trial. Melzer has talked of the “deliberate, concerted and sustained nature of the abuse inflicted on Mr. Assange.”
“In 20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political persecution, I have never seen a group of democratic states ganging up to deliberately isolate, demonise and abuse a single individual for such a long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of law. The collective persecution of Julian Assange must end here and now,” Melzer added.
Assange’s family believes that their son will get the Epstein treatment, and he will be murdered to keep him from quiet and make an example of him.”
The vast majority of journalistic stooges have kept silent throughout Assange’s persecution, or have cheered it on due to their partisan political biases. These individuals should be considered the enemies of mankind.
