It is clear to me that Julian Assange was very involved with Trump’s team during the presidential election of 2016. What’s more, I am fully convinced that Wikileaks was also involved with early Qanon movement, just like other big players who, for now, shall remain nameless were. (If you don’t know about Qanon, start here)
I am also convinced that the timely released of the DNC hacked emails (which were not hacked at all given transfer speeds), had a lot to do with Trump’s team convincing Wikileaks that Julian Assange was going to get a full pardon, or immunity (or whatever legal terminology is the most correct for having his charges dropped); if he cooperated with ‘the plan‘ of getting Trump elected.
We already saw Kim DotCom’s disappointment, especially after the incidents in Saudi Arabia.
Notice above two things about Kim Dotcom’s words. The first one is ‘do the right thing and pardon Julian Assange‘. That very much sounds like a bargain was struck between Trump’s administration and Wikileaks.
And the second is that ‘Trump was given the opportunity to drain the swamp.” Which sounds exactly as if he was ‘placed there‘ on the promise that he was going to do the ‘right thing‘, i.e drain the swamp.
But it seems that nothing really mattered to Trump except his own interests. After all, what is the death of a man compared to a couple of pennies on your gallon of petrol? What is the death of thousands compared to filling your own pockets?
It doesn’t much matter what I believe or what I specifically know about Wikileaks and Qanon. Currently is all part of a much larger project…
What it matters here is Trump.
The first time I ever heard of Donald Trump was during the 2016 US presidential election. While this might sound unbelievable to some of you, turns out that Europeans have celebrities of their own, and nobody really cares much about anybody else except for the Hollywood movie stars. In my case, I don’t even watch TV (just series I stream directly, so I don’t get commercials either). But I digress.
The reason I mention this is because it has a great deal to do with my originally falling for Qanon and my believing and supporting Trump. Because I never heard of him, I was more than willing to overlook what I thought were a few minor misdeeds in pro of what I naively believed to be the first true ‘Hegemon‘.
Sure The Hegemon is not perfect, and sure he does use troops. But he does so only after exhausting every other peaceful option. He does so to protect the innocent and to protect the weak. The Hegemon takes no pleasure in commanding troops or losing lives. He does it, so nations won’t trample over other nations simply because they are militarily superior.
But there is nothing like the scientific method to prove me wrong. And just like any reasonable scientist, research tramples my own Utopian dreams. It was research that showed me how much ‘bigger‘ the ‘minor misdeeds‘ were than I originally thought. It was research that led me to discover that Trump’s claim of ‘draining the swamp‘ was bogus.
He keeps appointing the swamp to his own cabinet. *
He takes money from The Swamp. He is part of the Swamp. So to put it simply: the Swamp does not arrest the swamp.
But where does Trump stand when it comes to Wikileaks?
Well, I guess that would depend on which year you were asking the question.
It is certainly true that Trump literally built his own political campaign on praising Wikileaks and using said emails to attack Hillary Clinton.
He definitely benefited from the information released by Wikileaks and, in my humble opinion, it was this more than anything else that swayed the public opinion. Hillary never had enough public support. Qanon always likes to say that ‘they never thought she would lose‘ and that is completely untrue. There is a difference between the polls manipulated for the masses that we see in newspapers and televisions, and the real polls that government agencies have that list everything from your political candidate to your favorite deodorant.
To me this has always been a lie that Qanon insists on to bring Republicans into the fold. No. I see two options here.
‘They‘ knew perfectly well she didn’t have enough popular support because there have been one too many scandals where the Clintons are concerned. So either ‘They‘ -They as in the real government that lurks in the shadows and chooses which puppets get to play politician-, knew perfectly well that Hillary didn’t have a majority and figured a way to get rid of Bernie Sanders via Superdelegates (and you thought your vote meant something) and other pied piper operation tactics. These could have been simple emotional and media manipulation by playing on people’s gullibility and convincing them that the press hated Trump, therefore he must be doing something right.
The second option, especially with regards to Qanon is that ‘Patriots are in control’ and, based on everything Qanon has said up until now, They, in this case, Qteam, have actually rigged the election to put Trump into a position of power. I have explained on several occasions my belief that Qanon was never a LARP, but a psychological cyber warfare operation.
In neither of these cases did your vote matter in the slightest. Governments maintain their own hegemony by grooming their own puppets years before they come to power. I personally do believe that the whole Qanon and Trump’s rise to power is a Deep State operation intent on nothing but distracting and dividing the population while the same Old World Agenda carries on with ‘business as usual’ (wars, force vaccination, mass surveillance, crypto- currencies, one world religion, etc.).
But surely not. Surely Trump is not a puppet. He is his own man because he is charismatic and appeals to the masses by using simple dialectics rather than complicated political rhetoric that nobody fully understands.
“Trump is not a globalist”, say his followers. “Trump is a man of the people”, say his worshipers. He cares for justice. He cares for the truth. He cares for Assange and Wikileaks, right?
There could be said many things about Trump. But I guess a man that looks out for his own interests and not those of the plebe would be an accurate description.
In 2010, in an interview with Brian Kilmeade of Kilmeade and friends, Trump said about Wikileaks: “Disgraceful…There should be like the death penalty or something.”
But a short few years later, in 2016, Trump and his team did a ‘deal’ with Wikileaks. What the deal was we can only speculate. What is certain however is that his election had a lot to do with the influence of Wikileaks over his campaign and the timely release of the DNC hack. Trump loved Wikileaks back then and had nothing but praise.
Promises made, promises broken. It didn’t take long for Trump and his administration to throw Assange under the bus and forget all about him. During his running for presidential office, Trump mentioned Wikileaks in more than 140 different occasions. Going as far as telling reporters: “I love reading those Wikileaks.” Now claims no knowledge of them. In fact, he says: “I know nothing about Wikileaks.“
Trump and his administration began distancing themselves from Wikileaks and Assange as soon as Trump took office. In fact, the then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in April 2017 that arresting Assange was a priority. The same month, Trump said: “it’s OK with me” if Assange is arrested.
Trump’s Press Secretary and White House adviser, Sarah Hauckabee Sanders, said that Trump was making a joke during the 2016 campaign. In her own words:
“Look, clearly the president was making a joke during the 2016 campaign. Certainly we take this serious. In fact, our administration’s the only one that’s done anything about it,” she responded. “The president was making a joke during the campaign and talking about the specifics of the case at that moment.”
“Let’s not forget that the reason that the reason Julian Assange is being looked at is because of the engagement he had with Chelsea Manning,” she said. “That individual is the person that the Obama administration actually commuted their sentence. We’re the only ones that have taken this whole process seriously and are actually doing something to solve the problem.”
Let’s not forget back in November 2018, the DOJ accidentally revealed an indictment against Julian Assange in an unrelated complaint against a man named Seitu Sulayman Kokayi.
The complaint, prosecutors wrote in the document, “would need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can therefore no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition in this matter.” At a separate point in the document, prosecutors wrote that “due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged.”
Let’s take a moment to remember that Qanon group has spent the better part of a year and a half convincing his follower that extraditing Julian Assange was really for his own good. Originally they tried to convinced their followers that Julian had been ‘extracted‘ from the Ecuadorian Embassy and was already ‘safe‘. Since this obvious lie didn’t sit well with most of the followers, nor those who support Assange himself, the narrative swiftly changed to that of Julian being extradited to the US and to testify in court would be in his best interest because, according to the conspiracy, he would then be able to include an array of documents and evidence that ‘would bring down the Deep State Swamp‘. Most, unfortunately, this claim is still widely accepted among Qanon supporters; who think that both Trump and the psy-op had nothing but the best interest at heart when it comes to both Wikileaks and Julian Assange.
After nearly 7 years in the Ecuadorian embassy, Ecuador withdrew his political asylum and the British police arrested him on the 11 of April of 2019 and placed him in a maximum security prison in southeast London.
Yesterday, the 1st of May, Julian was convicted by The Southwark Crown Court in the UK to a 50-week jail sentence for ‘skipping bail’. A very bogus charge while they process his extradition to US.
To briefly recap:
Julian was granted asylum as a political refugee and was confined to the Ecuadorian Embassy for nearly 7 years. He was also given Ecuadorian citizenship, which had been recently revoked by the Ecuadorian government in a widely unjustified and barely legal move to comply with the United States’ interests. Before he was granted asylum he served over 550 days of house arrest. The UK taxpayers’ have wasted £16 million on spying and patrolling the Ecuadorian Embassy at US direction.
As scholar and WikiLeaks advocate Simon Floth explains, under British law bail is only legally breached if there’s a failure to meet bail “without reasonable cause”, which the human right to seek asylum certainly is. The UK itself was clearly unconvinced of its own authority to charge someone who was under political asylum for jumping bail, waiting a full nine days before issuing an arrest warrant in 2012.
To put it into perspective, a year has 52 weeks. He was convicted to 50 weeks. Jeffrey Epstein, was charged with soliciting an underage girl for prostitution. In reality, 40 other women brought claims against him. He got a plea deal with the government that agreed to grant him immunity from all federal criminal charges. Epstein served 13 months in “custody with work release”, which meant he was allowed to spend 16 hours a day outside of prison.
In the meantime, not a peep from Trump or his cabinet.
If you had to choose, would you choose Trump or Assange?
From a Qanon perspective, I can only wonder: was this part of the plan all along?
