    In the first signs of movement following years of legal limbo involving the exiled Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, whose releases of hacked DNC and Podesta emails over the past few months have had a dramatic impact on the US political system, Swedish Chief Prosecutor Ingrid Isgren arrived at Ecuador's London embassy to question Assange, following a prolonged deadlock in an alleged rape case opened in Sweden more than six years ago. As CNN reports, Assange gave a statement in the presence of a Swedish prosecutor regarding allegations he sexually assaulted two women in the country six years ago, WikiLeaks tweeted...

    While it is unclear if it was done on purpose or by mistake, moments ago a folder within what appears to be the Wikileaks server has opened at the address which provides a glimpse into thousands of doc, pdf, wav, jpg and various other files, as well as dozens of subdirectories including Videos, Syria-files, Collateral Murder, Japan Bribery Affair, and many others. It is unclear what the basis of this disclosure is, although some are speculating that it may be the release of one of Wikileaks' so-called insurance files, which in light of today's speculation about the fate of...

    Over the past 24 hours, Wikileaks has been tweeting out very cryptic numbers without any context. What are they? Why are they tweeting them out? We've got answers. Wikileaks Precommitment To understand what these numbers mean, we first should understand what a "pre-commitment" is. According to Wikipedia, a precommitment means: Precommitment is a strategy in which a party to a conflict uses a commitment device to strengthen its position by cutting off some of its options to make its threats more credible. Any party employing a Strategy of Deterrence faces the problem that retaliating against an attack may ultimately result...

  • WikiLeaks to publish more Hillary Clinton emails - Julian Assange

    The Guardian ^ | 6-12-16 | Mark Tran
    Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has said his organisation is preparing to publish more emails Hillary Clinton sent and received while US secretary of state. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is under FBI investigation to determine whether she broke federal law by using her private email in sending classified information. A new WikiLeaks release of Clinton emails is likely to fan a controversy that has bedevilled her campaign and provide further ammunition for Donald Trump, her Republican presidential rival, who has used the issue to attack her.
  • If chosen for HUD, Julian Castro's work, big payday could face scrutiny

    San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro is widely referred to as a "rising star" in Democratic politics. There's even talk the Mexican-American Castro could earn the vice-presidential spot on the 2016 Democratic ticket in an effort to further strengthen the party's bonds with Hispanic voters. And now, it appears Castro's national profile is about to rise with word that President Obama plans to nominate him to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. If Castro is tapped for the job, his Senate confirmation hearings will likely shine a spotlight both on his role in San Antonio's government and his way of...

    Caltrans is storing the three replicas until crosses can be relocated to nearby churchThe crosses at Inspirational Point in Julian were removed Tuesday morning around 4 a.m. by the California Department of Transportation. Caltrans received complaints from drivers earlier this summer that the crosses were erected without permit on state-owned property adjacent to State Route 79, east of Julian. The crosses are currently in storage, but Caltrans has plans to relocate them within the next 30 days to Hillside Community Church, where Pastor Rick Hill volunteered to host the three replicas. But Dorri Smith, a Julian resident, hopes to see...

    Full Title: Julian Assange said U.S. informants named in secret cables 'deserved' to be killed and initially refused to redact their names, a new book has revealed. WikiLeaks published thousands of names of Afghans in 77,000 classified war files put on the whistle-blowing website, attracting criticism from international charities and governments. In later releases of secret U.S. embassy cables in November around 15 per cent of files were withheld to protect lives and every file was checked before release. Amnesty International said in a letter to WikiLeaks last year that all names in Afghan war logs should be redacted.

    big journalism ^ | 12/7/10 | John Sexton
    Turns out there’s a fairly clear answer to the question Why is Julian Assange doing this? Anyway, it’s as clear as the topic of human motivations ever really get. Back in 2006, Assange wrote a couple of essays on the topic of conspiracy and control. He takes the position that all authoritarian structures are conspiracies of power. His thoughts are interesting. Their may even be some truth to some of what he says. In any case, if you want to understand his motivation, grasp what he’s saying here: Conspiracies take information about the world in which they operate (the conspiratorial...

    Question: Does it matter that most of today’s Western rebels are driven by socialism? Or that the lobotomized mainstream media never isolates this trait when reporting these rogues? In the West there is no larger group of man-made disaster-makers than modern liberals. Cursing the world with their withering self-righteousness, socialists and Marxists like Julian Assange have been a global plague since the French Revolution. The fact is when journalists report on those sharing their own worldview, typically they display no professional discipline. And the coverage gets sloppy. There is no doubt that Assange is a committed leftist. We know this...

    Yet another Southern California wildfire underway, this time in the eastern San Diego County area near Witch Creek on Highway 78 between Ramona and Julian.

Chief on scene requesting 7 air tankers, 6 helicopters, 10 strike teams of brush engines, and 6 strike teams of structure engines.

    FNC's Julian Phillips is losing his Fox & Friends Weekend anchor gig, FTVLive reports. The site says Phillips couldn't muster up on-screen chemistry with Kiran Chetry and Alisyn Camerota. D.C. correspondent Kelly Wright will replace Phillips "as soon as this weekend." In addition, Rudi Bakhtiar is reportedly getting a higher-profile assignment in the 5pm hour. She may be used to attract more eyeballs to The Big Story; it was the lowest-rated weekday FNC program in the 25-54 demographic in the second quarter...

    OK, I am going to give most of you the day off. The rest of you need to pay close attention. You have some work to do. A lot of you I know like a book. That comes from almost a decade of responding to your letters and emails on a variety of subjects. You've told me in no uncertain terms that you don't like watching cowboys kiss each other. In fact, watching the media gush over boys marrying boys and girls marrying girls makes you want to upchuck your biscuits and gravy. You don't have much tolerance for those...
