Top UN Anti-Torture Official Urges Trump to Send Message of “Justice, Truth, and Humanity” by Pardoning Julian Assange

by Brett Wilkins, Activist Post:

Echoing calls from global grassroots campaigners, the top United Nations anti-torture official on Tuesday asked President Donald Trump to pardon jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is languishing in London’s notorious Belmarsh prison as he awaits his fate regarding possible extradition to the United States to stand trial for what critics say are unwarranted espionage charges.

In a letter to the outgoing American president, Nils Melzer, the U.N. special rapporteur on torture, noted that “Assange has been arbitrarily deprived of his liberty for the past 10 years,” a “high price to pay for the courage to publish true information about government misconduct throughout the world.”

Truth, Lies and Inflation

by Gary Christianson, Miles Franklin:

Christopher Whalen wrote “Trump is Right to Blow Up the Fed.” He stated:

“Anybody who cares to read the 1978 Humphrey Hawkins law will know that the Fed is directed by Congress to seek full employment and then zero inflation. Not 2 percent, but zero. Yet going back a decade or more, the Fed, led by luminaries such as Janet Yellen and Ben Bernanke, has advanced a policy of actively embracing inflation.”

Erasing History, Diplomacy, Truth, and Life on Earth

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

One of the reasons that countries fail is that collective memory is continually destroyed as older generations pass away and are replaced by new ones who are disconnected from what came before.

Initially, the disconnect was handled by history and by discussions around family tables. For example, when I was a kid there were still grandparents whose fathers had fought for the Confederacy. They had no slaves and owned no plantations. They fought because their land was invaded by Lincoln’s armies. Today if Southern families still know the facts, they would protect their children by not telling them. Can you imagine what would happen to a child in a public school that took this position?

If you don’t think we live in a crazy world, here is Netanyahu, the genocidal zionist leader of Israel, an invader which has destroyed Palestine and seized Palestine for Jews, expelling Palestinians from their homes, villages and country, accusing Abbas, the front man chosen by Washington and Israel as Palestine’s leader, of being a Holocaust denier. https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201805021064078676-netanyahu-abbas-holcaust-denial/
