[A secularist whose courage to speak out against the
wickedness of the American Empire puts Christians to shame]

Julian Assange


Arundhati Roy of India - a courageous opponent of the American New World Order System, writes:


Roy continues:

"It uses different weapons to break open different markets and bend them to its will. There isn't a country on God's earth that is not caught in the cross-hairs of the American cruise missile and the IMF checkbook: Argentina's model if you want to be the poster boy of neoliberal capitalism, Iraq if you're the black sheep. Poor countries that are geopolitically of strategic value to Empire, or have a 'market' of any size, or infrastructure that can be privatized, or, God forbid, natural resources of value - oil, gold, diamonds, cobalt, coal - must do as they're told or become military targets. Those with the greatest reserves of natural wealth are most at risk. Unless they surrender their resources willingly to the corporate machine, civil unrest will be fomented or war will be waged." [Please see our article, "Inside the American new World Order System."]

The Bible calls this nation BABYLON THE GREAT (Rev. 14:8, 16:19, 17:5, 18:2, 18:19, 18:21), and the relatively SUDDEN appearance of this great nation on the stage of world history as the SINGLE, dominant world power has changed everything for mankind. What this means for all of us - believer and unbeliever alike - is that we are now at the very doorstep to the "end of the age."

Naturally enough, this BEAST nation does not present itself as that; indeed, quite the opposite: It presents itself as God's champion destined to conquer the world for Christ and the church in preparation for Christ's Second Coming. IT IS THE DUTY OF EVERY CHRISTAN TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THIS DECEPTION. [Please see our article, "The Good News of the Coming Kingdom."]

Sadly, however, very few Christians have shown any real interest (or exhibited any real courage) in standing against this deception in a MEANINGFUL manner. The only people doing so are LEFTIES such as JULIAN ASSANGE. This is his story.



For the last three years Wikileaks (see below) has become the bane of the U.S. intelligence community. It is "headed-up" by an enigmatic figure: Julian Assange.

Geert Lovink, a Research Professor of Interactive Media at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA), writes:

"Julian Assange has never publicly admitted that he's the brains behind Wikileaks, the website that has so radically rewritten the rules in the information era. He did, however, register a website, Leaks.org, in 1999. 'But then I didn't do anything with it'. "Wikileaks appeared on the internet three years ago. It acts as an electronic dead drop for highly sensitive or secret information: the pure stuff, in other words, published straight from the secret files to the world. No filters, no rewriting, no spin. Created by an online network of dissidents, journalists, academics, technology experts and mathematicians from various countries, the website also uses technology that makes the original sources of the leaks untraceable.

"In April the website released graphic, classified video footage of an American helicopter gunship firing on and killing Iraqis in a Baghdad street in 2007, apparently in cold blood. The de-encrypted video, which Wikileaks released on its own sites as well as on YouTube, caused an international uproar."

WikiLeaks is an international organization that publishes submissions of otherwise unavailable documents from anonymous sources and leaks. Its website, launched in 2006, is run by The Sunshine Press. WikiLeaks has won a number of awards, including the 2008 Economist Magazine New Media Award. In May 2010, the New York Daily News listed WikiLeaks first in a ranking of "websites that could totally change the news". In April 2010, WikiLeaks posted on a website called Collateral Murder video from a 2007 incident in which Iraqi civilians were killed by U.S. forces. In July of the same year, WikiLeaks released Afghan War Diary, a compilation of more than 76,900 documents about the War in Afghanistan not previously available for public review. In October the group released a package of almost 400,000 documents called the Iraq War Logs in coordination with major commercial media organizations.

Wikileaks blew the whistle on the support given by various governments throughout the world to America's super-secret rendition project. Map above shows air flight data for these flights. [For more information on RENDITION, please see our article, "I Was in Prison and Ye Visited Me Not."] PLEASE SEE APPENDIX I FOR A LIST OF THOSE COUNTRIES INVOLVED IN AMERICA'S RENDITION PROGRAM

Lovink continues:

"The Baghdad video has been Wikileaks' biggest coup to date, although an extraordinary number of unauthorized documents - more than a million - have found their way to the website. These include a US government's classified manual of standard operating procedures for Camp Delta at Guantanamo Bay, which revealed that it was policy to hide some prisoners from the International Committee of the Red Cross; a classified US intelligence report on how to marginalize Wikileaks; an internal report by the global oil trader, Trafigura, about dumping toxic waste in the Ivory Coast; a classified US profile of the former Icelandic ambassador to the US in which the ambassador is praised for helping quell publicity about the CIA's activities involving rendition flights.

"Two years ago a Swiss bank in Zurich, Julius Baer, succeeded in temporarily closing down the website with a US District Court injunction after Wikileaks published documents detailing how the bankers hid their wealthy clients' funds in offshore trusts (the banned documents reappeared on Wikileaks ''mirror'' sites in places such as Belgium and Britain)."

To say that the list of rattled people in high places around the world is growing because of Wikileaks is an understatement. The fact that the website has no headquarters also means that conventional retaliatory measures - phones tapped, raids by the authorities, etc. - are impossible.


However, things began to change for Assange last August (2010). Suddenly and quite unexpectedly, Assange was arrested in Sweden and charged with two criminal counts - one for rape, one for sexual molestation. The charges were levied at a time when Wikileaks was set to publish 15,000 more secret papers about the war in Afghanistan, having recently released nearly 77,000 papers and sparking charges from the Americans that it had endangered the lives of informants and others.

NOTE: The fact is, Wikileaks has shown great care to "redact" any names of persons that might be targeted by "insurgents."

Example of a "redacted" document where certain specific names have been blacked out.

There could be little doubt that the Americans were sending a warning shot in the direction of Assange: "We have more than one way of "getting rid of you."

Only a few hours later, the charges were dropped; the warning had been delivered.

Assange had no doubt as to the identity of those who were behind the "trumped-up" charges. He remarked later,

"We have been warned that the Pentagon was going to use dirty tricks to destroy us. I have furthermore been warned about set-up sex traps."

Che Guevara

NOTE: An American Tea Party website the RightwingNews.com suggested that "a CIA agent with a sniper rifle should rattle a bullet around [Assange's] skull the next time he appears in public as a warning." Rest assured that the CIA is wiser than the Tea Party. They at least have learned the lesson of Che Guevara (who was made a martyr when the CIA assassinated him).

Nowadays they ruin a rebel's reputation instead of wasting a bullet. They won't raise Assange up to become a martyr, they simply use his own erstwhile allies to reduce him to a laughing stock.

They stain him with opprobrium. It is much more certain and final than the marksman's shot. History is witness to their growing efficiency in using this tactic. In the 70's, they could only bring themselves to say that Philip Agee was a womanizer and a drunkard.

Nowadays they do not stint at charges of pedophilia, for example to humiliate Scott Ritter for failing to go along with George W Bush's charade of Iraqi WMD. As you might expect, the rape campaign against Assange might be just an initial volley. Perhaps they will decide he is a pedophile too. The unspoken threat is enough to send some faint-hearted supporters of WikiLeaks scurrying for cover. The bullet can always come later, once the victim has been successfully isolated by the smear campaign. [For information on how a CIA "hit" works, please see our article, "The Death of Gary Webb."]

The Gospels tell us that hardly anyone followed Jesus to Golgotha, though just a week earlier the people of Jerusalem had hailed Him with hosannas. Interestingly, there exists a Jewish story that explains this was the result of a successful smear campaign managed by the High Priest and the Sanhedrin (i.e., the "religious establishment" of Christ's day).

LEFT: Philip Agee; RIGHT: Scott Ritter. Both were smeared by the CIA; Agee was charged as a womanizer and a drunkard; Ritter was charged with being a pedophile. This kind of thing is enough to send "LIVING ROOM RADICALS" scurrying for cover.

Assange continued:

"I have no doubt that the Pentagon is hiding behind these charges."

Gavin MacFadyen, director of the Center for Investigative Journalism writes,

"A lot of us who had any notion of what he was doing have expected this sort of thing to happen for some time now. I'm amazed it has taken this long to get it together."

Assange replied to the charges by saying,

"I have never, neither in Sweden nor in any other country, had sex with someone in a way which wasn't completely voluntary on both sides."


Swedish beauty, Anna Ardin, ostensibly a radical leftist, but in reality she is a CIA "honey trap."

It's now pretty sure who the 31 year old women is that had sex with Julian Assange in Sweden. The Italian newspaper La Republica identifies her as Anna Ardin, the woman who had invited Assange to Sweden to speak at a conference meeting of the Swedish Christian Social Democratic Brotherhood Movement.

There seems to be little doubt that Assange stayed in her apartment when he was in Stockholm, and that the two of them had sex "after a traditional Swedish cray-fish-party (where people drink vodka with crayfish)."

Israel Shamir, a leading left-wing Russian Israeli writer, and freelance writer Paul Bennett report that there is probably little doubt that Anna Ardin is a CIA asset. Indeed, the moment that Assange sought momentary relief beneath Sweden's reputation as a bastion of free speech, the CIA immediately threatened to discontinue intelligence sharing with SEPO, the Swedish Secret Service.

The Swedish "establishment" wanted nothing of that. The very real fact of the matter is, ever since the murder of Sweden's Prime Minister Olof Palme, the Swedes have been doing everything they can to ingratiate themselves with the United States - after all, they know perfectly well "which side of the toast the butter is on."

And more than that, Swedish politicians now are fully cognizant of what the CIA is capable of if and when they "stray too far off the plantation."


LEFT: Prime Minister Olof Palme of Sweden; RIGHT: The Palme murder scene.

Most likely, Olof Palme was the victim of a "Pegasus" assassination plot. Palme was a radical, outspoken and charismatic leader advocating peace, socialism and solidarity. He was an opponent of the Vietnam War and the Cold War; he fought against Apartheid and adopted the causes of many oppressed peoples around the world. Needless to say, all this did not endear Palme to the CIA. Commenting on the "Pegasus Project," former CIA deep cover agent Gene "Chip" Tatum has said, "Our mission in «Pegasus« was to align foreign leaders, foreign financiers, and foreign countries with the policies of the United States using first diplomacy. If diplomacy did not work, then it was turned over to the Pegasus unit to work in one of the three arenas that we were professionals at working: Blackmail, intimidation and murder."


Shamir and Bennett continue:

"For a smear that really sticks, you need to get it from an ex-apostle [someone like Anna Ardin who styles herself as a left-wing radical]. An accusation by a Caiaphas [i.e., a right-winger] does not impress. If you are targeting a leftist, hire leftists. For example, Trotskyites were willing and useful tools against the Communists. Who are the Judases of this campaign against Julian?

  • An anonymous group claiming to be "Wikileaks insiders" uploaded a new site full of "revelations" about Assange's past and present, claiming he lives in luxury in South Africa on donated funds - though he appears almost daily in Swedish media and police reports.

  • Another ex-apostle is the Icelander politician Birgitta Jonsdottir, who is misrepresented as a "Wikileaks spokesperson." She called on Assange "to step down" and leave Wikileaks to drift without his guidance - as if WikiLeaks is somehow separate from Assange.

  • The pseudo-progressive organization Reporters Sans Frontières attacked Assange for endangering the lives of innocent American secret agents in Afghanistan. Despite its 'leftist' terminology, RSF is a private organization drawing funds from US government sources aiming to destabilize Cuba. It is connected to Cuban émigrés in Miami.

  • The feminist anti-Castro group Las damas de blanco (the Ladies in White) of which Ardin was a "leading light."

    Anna Ardin (the official complainant) is often described by the media as a "leftist" but there are telltale signs of CIA connections. She has ties to US-financed anti-Castro and anti-communist groups. She published her anti-Castro diatribes in the publication Revista de Asignaturas Cubanas put out by Misceláneas de Cuba. From Oslo, Professor Michael Seltzer points out that this periodical is the product of a well-financed anti-Castro organization in Sweden. He further notes that the group is connected with Union Liberal Cubana led by Carlos Alberto Montaner whose CIA ties were exposed here. Note that Ardin was deported from Cuba for subversive activities. In Cuba she interacted with the feminist anti-Castro group Las damas de blanco (the Ladies in White). This group receives US government funds and the convicted anti-communist terrorist Luis Posada Carriles is a friend and supporter. Wikipedia quotes Hebe de Bonafini, president of the Argentine Madres de Plaza de Mayo as saying that "the so-called Ladies in White defend the terrorism of the United States."

  • According to Shamir and Bennett, the second accuser, Sofia Wilen, 26, is Anna' friend. Both are believed to be CIA assets.



    LEFT: Anna Ardin; RIGHT: Sofia Wilen

    For millennia, spymasters of all sorts have trained their spies to use the amorous arts to obtain secret information.

    The trade name for this type of spying is the "honey trap." And it turns out that both men and women are equally adept at setting one - and equally vulnerable to tumbling in. Spies use sex and the thrill of a secret life as bait. Cleverness, training, character, and patriotism are often no defense against a well-set honey trap. And as in normal life, no planning can take into account that a romance begun in deceit might actually turn into a genuine, passionate affair. In fact, when an East German honey trap was exposed in 1997, one of the women involved refused to believe she had been deceived, even when presented with the evidence. "No, that's not true," she insisted. "He really loved me."

    Those who aim to perfect the art of the honey trap in the future, as well as those who seek to insulate themselves, would do well to learn from honey trap history. Of course, there are far too many stories - too many dramas, too many rumpled bedsheets, rattled spouses, purloined letters, and ruined lives - to do that history justice here.

    The fact that Assange tumbled into a honey trap should be clear to anyone with even a modicum of honesty with regard to how the world works - and the fact that both Ardin and Wilen were coached into crying "RAPE" should be equally obvious; in this regard it is no accident that Assange would have been "set up" in Sweden where such rape charges are easier to make than anywhere else in the world.


    Bobby Seale

    Moreover, that the U.S. government should be a party to such a fabrication should come as no surprise either. The government has been doing this for years - and not only against foreigners, but against U.S. citizens who have for one reason or another "ticked off" the powers-that-be.

    You doubt this happens in the real world? Well, for the sake of those who think that it doesn't happen, it's perhaps necessary to digress a little to point out the facts of the matter, because it happens a lot, especially when the so-called "anti-establishment" challenges the "establishment." Take, for example, what happened to Bobby Seale and the Black Panther Party back in the 1960.

    Also, as you read this account, you should bear in mind that if you stay with Antipas, you must steel yourself for it to happen to you because it will happen!

    Believe me, you will be attacked! - and the attacks will come from both the RELIGIOUS establishment, as well as the POLITICAL establishment - and, again, this is precisely why my twin brother and Richard Paradise want to put as much distance between Antipas and themselves.

    The truth is, all four of them are NOTHING more than "living room radicals" who talk a "good game" in the comfort of an easy chair, but who shrink back at the prospect of taking any kind of MEANINGFUL action with regard to the Prophetic Scriptures.

    FAKE RADICALS: my twin brother and Paradise pretending to be radicals in the safety and privacy of their own living rooms when in fact they are all married to the "good life" and want to hold on to it with all their might. These are the kind of people about whom Karl Marx once said, "While I deeply admire and respect Jesus, I have nothing but contempt for his fake followers of today."

    All four of them are more than aware of Christ's warning:

    "Take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the ... (churches) ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them." (Mark 13:9)

    - and they want nothing to do with getting caught in such a fashion.

    Naturally enough, all four of them would assert that WHEN THE TIME COMES, somehow or other they will rise to the occasion - even though they have been unable to do so in the past under far less dangerous circumstances.

    As I have indicated before, this kind of STUPID notion reminds me of the sister who once wrote me that she just couldn't consider emigrating out of the United States; but that I should not despair for her because even though she wasn't doing anything now to speak out boldly against the American New World Order System, when the Tribulation begins, she will be out doing so. [Please see our article, "Come Out of Her;" please also see our article, "Our Failure in Canada."]

    NOTE: Specifically, a brethern wrote to a co-worker:

    "Dear ...,

    "Please pass this on to Steve [S.R. Shearer] ... Some of us will never leave the U.S. for a variety of reasons, but do not dismiss us for that because our faith is strong and true. We may not be doing all we can to testify in the streets now, but I sense our time has not arrived yet. At this point, not many will listen and we will be branded as insane. The time will come, however, when many people will be hungry for what we have to say and they will listen, and the Lord will use us in a mighty way.

    "There are Christians and others in the U.S. who will be saved by our efforts because we chose to stay and be physically with them during the Tribulation. The internet will probably be controlled at some point so it will be the people that you ... have touched with your faithfulness and truth that will carry on the ministry one-on-one with people ... [in the United States]."

    What a CROCK! - and I told them so.


    In the late 1960s the Black Panther Party started a Free Breakfast program for children in Oakland, California. Concerned that the program would spread "anti-establishment" propaganda, the elites "sicced" the FBI on them. The bureau produced a 24-page coloring book, making it appear as if it had been created by the Panthers. Intending to gut public support for the group, the book contained inflammatory pictures, some of which featured young black kids shooting pigs dressed up as policemen.

    A page from the so-called "Black Panther Coloring Book" showing blacks (with black children watching) shooting a "Pig" (i.e., a policeman). THE BOOK WAS A FAKE CREATED BY THE FBI TO RUIN THE REPUTATION OF THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY.

    The FBI sent copies of the coloring book to the Panthers' white contributors and to businesses that supported the free breakfast program, such as Safeway and Jack-in-the-Box. When copies of the forgery reached the Panthers' national leadership, Bobby Seale destroyed it, saying it "did not correctly reflect the ideology of the Black Panther Party."

    Nonetheless, the FBI ruse worked, and the Panther's sponsors withdrew from the program. For years and years afterwards copies of the "Black Panther Coloring Book" circulated in conservative circles and was accepted as "Gospel" - despite the heated denials from leaders in the Black Panther Party that the coloring book "was none of theirs." It wasn't until years later that the "Senate Committee on Intelligence Activities" chaired by the late Senator Frank Church of Idaho discovered that the coloring book had been a ruse invented by the FBI to discredit the Black Panther Party - but by then the ruse had done its "dirty work:" the coloring book had ignited a firestorm against the Black Panthers resulting in a spate of "cooked up" criminal prosecutions against the leaders of the party that landed most of them in jail. After the Church Committee revelations, many of the leaders of the Panthers were freed "on appeal," but only after they had spent years and years in prison and their reputations forever FIXED in the American public's mind as "cop killers."


    Then, of course, there's what the FBI did to Martin Luther King. In the late 1950s the government began spying on MLK because the elites had become convinced that King was a "frontman" for the Communist Party, and his Civil Rights Crusade was nothing more than an instrument of communist subversion. Indeed, in a 1963 internal memo, counterintelligence specialist Charles D. Brennan stated that civil rights agitation represented a clear threat to "the established order" of the United States, and that -

    "King is growing in stature daily as the leader among leaders of the Negro movement."

    COINTELPRO head William C. Sullivan responded in a letter,

    "We must discredit King by any means possible" - William C. Sullivan

    "We must mark [King] now, if we have not before, as the most dangerous Negro in the future of the nation from the standpoint of communism, the Negro, and national security ... it may be unrealistic to limit [our actions against King] to legalistic proofs that would stand up in court or before Congressional Committees."

    So, instead of sticking within the constraints of the law, THE FBI AIMED TO DISCREDIT KING BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Agents tapped his phone, bugged his rooms, trumpeted his supposed commie connections, and his sexual proclivities, and "sicced" the Internal Revenue Service on him.

    When it was announced in 1964 that King would receive the Nobel Peace Prize, the FBI grew desperate. Hoping to prevent King from accepting the award, the Bureau mailed him an anonymous package containing an audio tape of King's alleged extra-marital affairs and a threatening letter. And what was the threat? In barely concealed language, King was told to commit suicide before the award ceremony or risk seeing his "filthy, abnormal fraudulent self" exposed to the nation.

    Think about that for a minute! The absolute HORROR of it all. An official agency of the U.S. government - the FBI - suggesting to King that he should commit suicide! Fortunately, King ignored the FBI's advice. He accepted the award and lived for four more years until the elites finally had him gunned down in Memphis. [We urge you to please read our article, "Now Is The Time To Do Something; It May Be Too Late Tomorrow" for the story of how and why the elites made war on Martin Luther King; please also see our articles, "MK-ULTRA: The Search for the Manchurian Candidate; A Study of the Mindset Behind Today's New World Order," and "Conspiracy Theories;" finally, please see our follow-up report on MK-Ultra entitled, "MK-Ultra and the Assassination of John F. Kennedy - More Evidence."]


    And one should be very clear, this kind of "sliming" happens to ordinary people as well as to people like Bobby Seale, Martin Luther King and Julian Assange. Take what happened to Mitchell Crooks - who was on vacation during the weekend of July 4th 2002 in Inglewood near downtown Los Angeles - when he heard a woman scream, "Don't resist."

    Crooks, who is white, grabbed his camera and ran outside his motel in time to catch on video tape the now infamous beating of Donovan Jackson, a black youth, by a GANG of Inglewood cops. His videotape clearly shows how the cops took the 16-year old Donovan and beat him mercilessly, and then brutally slammed the half-conscious young man onto the hood of a car and beat him some more.


    After Crooks realized that the cops had seen him videotaping the event, you can hear him say on the tape, "They're gonna come up and come after me now." Worried about turning the video over to the police, Crooks took the precaution of separating the tape from his camera and giving it to some other guests. Within minutes, SEVENTEEN armed sheriff deputies were combing through the motel looking for Crooks. And for what? - committing a crime? No! - for simply videotaping the police in the "routine course of their duties" in downtown Los Angeles. Obviously, the police didn't want the "general public" to know what those duties consisted of.

    Mitchell Crooks

    Crooks said, "Ninety percent of the people there knew I'd taped it, but no one said a word. We all knew that if they got it, it would be the end of it, it would disappear." Think about that! - that's quite an indictment against the crude methodologies of the L.A. police by average people in Inglewood - or maybe they're all wrong and the police (and the elites who protect them) are all right.

    Is that what you think about Bobby Seale? Is that what you think about Martin Luther King? Is that what you think about Julian Assange?

    And is that what you think about ordinary people (e.g., blacks, Hispanics, gays, etc.) - people such as Mitchell Crooks - when they are brutalized by the police? - if you do, then you are a victim (like almost everyone else in the United States) of the pervasive and very wicked propaganda of the corporate media against the poor in this country as purveyed to average Americans in such TV programs as "Cops," "Most Wanted," "FBI Files;" etc. - the kind of propaganda that predisposes middle-class Americans to take the word of the few (the cops) against the many (the poor). This isn't a ringing endorsement for the assumptions that are supposed to underpin a democracy.

    The cops didn't find the tape. And - much to the horror of the Los Angeles law enforcement and judicial communities - Crooks, with the help of other eyewitnesses to the event, made sure that the media got copies of it the next day. His footage was aired on all the major L.A. news broadcasts, and it was picked up nationally and even internationally. But in making sure that the media got a hold of his tape, Crooks of necessity was forced out of the shadows and into the open where the law enforcement community could at last "draw a bead on him."


    The next day, while Crooks was being interviewed live on the radio, the Chief Deputy District Attorney of Los Angeles phoned in and said threateningly, "Mitchell, there's a grand jury subpoena out on you; I suggest you honor it? Show up at the Criminal Courts Building." Crooks, however, was under no obligation - absent a subpoena that had been PERSONALLY served on him (and absent a criminal indictment) - to volunteer to be interviewed by the grand jury. Crooks knew that by delivering himself up to the grand jury he would at the same time be delivering himself up to the "tender mercies" of the D.A. who controlled the grand jury. And then what?

    Terror tactics of the Ramparts Division

    Crooks didn't want to find out. He told his interviewer, "They're coming after me because I shot the video. I fear for my life." That kind of statement would, of course, sound like an absurd exaggeration to most white, middle-class Americans, but to the denizens of the underclass, it isn't - as the recent exposes of the TERROR TACTICS of the Ramparts Division of the L.A. Police Department clearly indicate.

    Obviously, the subpoena "ruse" wasn't working, and the cops had to find another way of stopping Crooks; so - as Crooks made his way around Los Angeles being interviewed by the media - the cops busied themselves in a painstaking "warrants search" and found an old traffic violation (can you imagine, an old, very routine traffic violation?) and a BOGUS petty theft charge (alleging that Crooks was guilty of theft of his grandmother's property - charges that she repudiated) that they felt they could arrest him on and get him off the streets and away from the media. And that's exactly what they did. When Crooks arrived at CNN the next day for a nationwide interview that the network had arranged with him in advance, undercover cops jumped out of unmarked cars and arrested him when he tried to enter the station.


    Jail cell similar to the one that Crooks was kept in for SIX MONTHS, twenty-three hours a day.

    As they spirited him away in a SUV, Crooks' screams, "They're gonna kill me," could be clearly heard. Later that night he was treated for unspecified injuries at a hospital (he had plainly been beaten up by the cops), and the next day he was extradited to a remote, rural county in northern California (far from all the "action" in L.A.) to face the "trumped up" charges against him.

    He was kept in custody for SIX MONTHS, locked down 23 HOURS A DAY, and allowed no mail and no contact with the outside. By the time he finally got out, the incident had largely "blown over." Later, in an interview on radio station KPFK after he had finally been released, Crooks said, "It's really scary to challenge the SYSTEM, and I knew that's what I was doing."


    Really scary to challenge the system? You bet it is! - which is exactly what we in Antipas are doing. Make no mistake about it, when you challenge the system, you risk being treated by the "establishment" in precisely the same way Crooks was treated.

    Your past will be searched and scrutinized, and if there is anything there - and I mean anything - it will be used against you!

    And who doesn't have something he would prefer the public didn't know about? Only a fool would say that he doesn't, so you can be sure that by challenging the system, you will be attacked on a personal basis in a way that you never thought possible, and if there is nothing to dig up on you, it will be "manufactured."


    Chief Prosecutor, Marianne Ny - like so many other Swedes today - is "in bed" with the CIA stooges operating out of that country - specifically, with Claes Borgström.

    With all this in mind - and knowing that these examples have all been taken out of the government's handbook (so to speak) on how to deal with those who dare to challenge the "SYSTEM," - we return to our story concerning Julian Assange: Despite the warning shot (as it were) from the CIA across Assange's head - and by that we mean the original trumped up charges of rape and sexual molestation levied against him last August - Assange refused to "back-off." Instead he released on the Wikileaks website his biggest bombshell yet - nearly 4,000,000 secret US military documents detailing graphic accounts of torture, killing of over 66,000 civilians and Iran's role in the conflict.

    In October - one month before the Swedes re-opened their criminal probe of Assange - the Swedish Migration Board rejected Assange's application to live and work in the Scandinavian country. "We have decided not to grant him a residence permit," said Gunilla Wikstršm, in charge of his case. "He did not fulfill the requirements," Wikstršm asserted, while refusing to provide any details. Very obviously, the CIA's noose around Assange's neck was tightening.

    Shortly thereafter - in mid-November - Swedish prosecutor, Marianne Ny, issued an international arrest warrant for Assange based on the charges that were originally made against him in August, and then dropped. Naturally enough, the timing of the renewed arrest warrant raised questions among the supporters of Wikileaks. Prosecutors released no details about the allegations against Assange.

    The pressure to re-open the case against Assange emanated from Claes Borgstršm, a prominent attorney and a Social Democratic politician. He served in the Swedish government of Gšran Persson from 2000 to 2007. He now operates a law firm in partnership with another Social Democratic politician (and former Minister for Justice) Thomas Bodstršm. Persson, Borgstršm and Bodstršm are all part of the Swedish "establishment" that was rattled to its very core by the CIA assassination of Olof Palme, and which now, as a result, slavishly dances to the dictates of the CIA.

    FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: Persson, Borgström and Bodström - all part of the Swedish "establishment" that today trembles before the shadow cast by the CIA in Sweden.

    Having learned its lesson well as a result of the Palme assassination, the Social Democratic government of Persson went out of its way to support the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and even dispatched 500 Swedish troops to the conflict in early 2002.

    Ardin, Wilen, Borgstršm and Bodstršm - i.e., those associated in pursuing the rape and sexual molestation charges against Assange - are all associated with the Social Democratic Party which, as we just indicated, acts today as a TOADY for U.S. interests in Sweden - while all the while hiding behind Left-Wing political goals that pursue a "radical feminist" agenda and other social policies that ostensibly are anathema to American neoconservatives. The CIA knows perfectly well how to hide its interests in foreign countries. [Please see our articles, "The Neoconservatives" and "The Invasion of Europe by America's Apostate Church."]

    The international arrest warrant for Assange was placed by Ny in the Schengen Information System, or SIS, which is used by the 27 European countries under the Schengen Agreement Application Convention, and the Interpol database.

    It means that countries can now arrest Assange and upon court order transfer him to Sweden without having to examine the allegations made against him. Countries in the European Union are required to do so under the European Arrest Warrant, which is valid throughout all EU member states.

    Mark Stephens, Assange's lawyer, remarked:

    "My client is now in the extraordinary position that, despite his innocence, and despite never having been indicted, and despite never receiving a single piece of paper about the allegations against him" he must remain on the run."

    The CIA is hunting Assange like a cat hunts a mouse.

    As a result of this CIA-inspired witch hunt, Assange, is now reported to be living a "hunted life" fearing arrest. Stephens says that Assange now hides himself like a mouse while the CIA hunts him like a cat.

    He gets into hotels under fictitious names, dyes his hair, changes his style of dressing to escape detection by the secret police sleuths; he sleeps not on beds but on sofas and floors. He does not use his credit cards and spends cash often borrowed from his friends, relatives and well-wishers. Recently he lost his bag and three encysted laptops during a journey from Sweden to Germany - which has given rise to the suspicion that US Intelligence agents are now intercepting his baggage.

    Assange was quoted as telling the New York Times:

    "By being determined to be on this path, and not to compromise, I've wound up in an extraordinary situation."

    He continued,

    "When it comes to the point where you occasionally look forward to being in prison on the basis that you might be able to spend a day reading a book, the realization dawns that perhaps the situation has become a little more stressful than you would like."


    The question is, How long will this truth bearer be able to run away from his tormentors? How long will it be before the CIA catches up to him? He does have one thing going for him. HE IS BY NOW A WELL-KNOWN INTERNATIONAL FIGURE - and that fact alone affords him a measure of protection. But should the CIA continue its campaign to SMEAR him, there is the very grave reality that he could eventually be "DISAPPEARED" with no one of importance to "give a damn."

    The greater danger for Assange in all this, however, is not so much that he will be caught and thrown into a Swedish jail, but that he will be "tracked-down" by the CIA and "VANISHED" into the CIA's Gulag while all the time America's intelligence agencies deny they have been able to find him.

    "HE HAS GONE TO GROUND; HE IS IN THE WIND" - that's what the CIA will claim, while all the time he is rotting away in one of America's "BLACK SITES." THIS IS PROBABLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OSAMA BIN LADEN.

    God help Assange if that happens to him!

    Arial view of Mihail Kogalniceanu air base. Romania - one of America's "BLACK SITES." Since 2001, the US has operated such sites as part of a program of rendition and illegal torture. The base at Mihail Kogalniceanu air base in Romania was (is) used for "high-level" detainees.

    A description of the inner circle of Dante's Inferno would probably not do justice to the hell that is occurring in these "BLACK SITES," but the experiences of three Yemeni men and one Canadian who were "disappeared" into this netherworld of pain and horror are instructive as to the actual living conditions there.

    According to Amnesty International, the four men were moved several times, but were always held in complete isolation, always in cells with blank walls, no floor coverings, no windows, no natural light. They spoke to no one but their interrogators and no one spoke to them. In their cells there was a constant low-level hum of "white noise" (indistinct, non-musical sounds), sometimes replaced by loud "rock" music. For over a year the men did not know what part of the world they were in, whether it was night or day, hot or cold, raining or sunny. They spent nearly every waking hour staring at the four blank walls of their cells, leaving only to go to interrogation. None of the men ever saw each other, or any other detainee.

    The detention regime imposed on these men was aimed at inducing maximum disorientation, dependence and stress. Hooding, cuffing and shackling were common practices. The experience of one of the men - Mahar Arar, a Canadian national - speaks for itself: Arar was changing planes in New York City on his way home to Canada from a family holiday in Tunisia. He was taken into custody by the US Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and was then held in incommunicado detention in New York for 13 days before being told he would be deported to Syria. He was taken, in chains, to a small private jet, which flew him to Jordan, where he was interrogated and beaten before being taken overland to Syria. In Syria, he says he was severely beaten with electrical cable during six days of interrogation, and threatened with electric shocks. He says he was held alone in a tiny, basement cell without light, which he called "the grave" for more than 10 months. He was finally released without charge one year later, in October 2003.

    In February 2004, Canadian authorities established a "Commission of Inquiry into the Actions of Canadian Officials in Relation to Maher Arar." Professor Stephen Toope was appointed "fact finder" by the Commission. In his October 2005 report, Professor Toope noted:

    "...as the beatings became less intense, it was the daily horror of living in the tiny, dark and damp cell all alone and with no reading material that came to be the most disturbing aspect of the detention. Whereas at first the cell was a refuge from the infliction of physical pain, later it became a 'torture' in its own right. ... He remained in this cell for ten months and ten days, and saw almost no sunlight except for when he was transferred for consular visits ... Mr. Arar describes the cell as 'a grave' and as a 'slow death'."

    Reich's Fuhrer Heinrich Himmler at the Dachau Concentration Camp in 1935

    NOTE: Some might ask why the CIA - which runs these sites - does not silence those very few prisoners who from time to time are released and who dare to speak out afterwards. The answer is a simple one: The CIA wants these stories circulated - if only as "unsubstantiated" rumors. The truth is, much of the value of these sites lie in the fact that as rumors are spread about them, they serve as a somber warning to those who might dare to follow in the footsteps of those who have been "disappeared" into the system. In Germany, for example, the Nazis would, from time to time, release prisoners from their concentrations camps - particularly German prisoners from Dachau and Buchenwald - for that very purpose: To tell the story of what was going on there. Indeed, by 1936, the whispered name of "Dachau" was enough to send shivers up and down the spines of ordinary Germans everywhere - and the very mystery surrounding the "goings-on" there only lent to the horror of Dachau.

    This is exactly why prisoners from America's "BLACK SITES" are released from time to time and not "disappeared" permanently. And one can be sure that this is exactly why Canadian citizen Maher Arar was released; it certainly wasn't because the CIA had any regard for the outcry in Canada against Arar's imprisonment; nor was it because Canadian officials had been "blind-sided" by the CIA's detention of Arar. Canadian officials knew perfectly well what was going on, their protests to the contrary notwithstanding, and they approved.


    Facility 1391 has been airbrushed from Israeli aerial photographs and purged from modern maps. Where once a police station was marked, there is now a blank space. Sometimes even the road leading to it has been erased. But Israel's secret prison is real enough. The Israeli government declines to discuss the prison other than to issue a standard response: "Facility 1391 is situated on a secret military base. The base is used by the security services for various classified activities and thus its location is kept confidential."

    Arar is the exception in that he was freed. But there are thousands more like Arar who are currently being held in such "BLACK SITES" around the world. Take the all-but-permanent condition of some of America's political prisoners being held in a "BLACK SITE" in Israel: Facility 1391.

    The cells into which these prisoners have been "disappeared" are tiny, usually no larger than six by eight feet; they are windowless and painted white; the doors to the cells are solid ones with a small hole through which food can be passed to the prisoner. The hole is shut after the food is passed through.

    Food, sleep, movement and mental stimulation are kept to a bare minimum. Prisoners are excluded from all human contact - whether lawyers, family members, other prisoners or guards; this treatment is designed to force inmates to be entirely dependent on prison authorities; it produces in the prisoner the "DDD SYNDROME" - a syndrome of "dread, dependency and debility." [Again, see note above as to how and why this kind of information gets out to the public at large.]

    In addition, dogs are used on them; they are often shocked with tasers and stun guns (often while harnessed in a "Restraint Chair"); many of them are kept permanently naked; they are forced to sleep on a concrete floor or slab; fed nothing but "nutri-loaf;" and given just a modicum of toilet paper - four squares at a time.



    Still, in the light of the HORROR of all this - which he is more than cognizant of - Assange persists in his effort to expose the wicked machinations of America's New World Order System, and in doing so, he makes a mockery of the millions and millions of Christians who should be standing with him in his effort; and be clear here, unless Christians are prepared to do so, it is impossible for them to be called disciples of Christ.

    Concerning "Lefties" like Assange, Jesus certainly spoke the truth when He said,

    "... the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light." (Luke 16:8)

    Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain [i.e., Babylon - meaning the United States], saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain. (Jeremiah 51:25)

    Listen to me, dear brothers and sisters in Christ: America MUST be exposed for what she really is: She is not the friend of God, as the leaders of today's evangelical church such as John Hagee, Pat Robertson, C. Peter Wagner, etc. allege, but THE ENEMY OF GOD!

    The claim that America is the friend of God brings shame to Christ's holy name, and it can only be a "turn-off" to the poor of the world who see the American New World Order System and the church that justifies it as frauds. [Please see our article, "The Third World as a Model for the American New World Order System."]

    The very real fact of the matter is, most of the poor in the world today see Christianity as a rich, white man's religion having NOTHING to do with them.

    Sadly, Islam is more a religion of the poor than is Christianity. What do the poor of the world want to do with a religion that justifies the very system - i.e., the American New World Order System - that oppresses and brutalizes them? [We urge you to read our article, "A Woman Riding A Beast Going Forth Conquering and to Conquer" for insight as to how this partnership between the rich of the world and Christianity works.]


    Assange and his supporters - whether they realize it or not - are involved in an aspect (a negative aspect, no doubt, but one that is absolutely essential) of something the Bible calls "the "Gospel of the Kingdom;" this gospel has been calculated to rip away the mask of piety behind which the religious FRAUDS of today's evangelical church hide themselves and in the process revealing the evil, avaricious "money-grubbing" that's really at the heart of the American Empire and that animates ALL those associated with it.

    Listen to me dear brothers and sisters in Christ, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PREACH THE "GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM" WITHOUT AT THE SAME TIME EXPOSING AMERICA AS THE ENEMY OF GOD, and this is precisely what Christians in America are so afraid of - Christians such as my twin brother and his friends like Richard Paradise. [We URGE you to see our articles, "The Good News of the Gospel of the Kingdom" and "The American New World Order System Must Give Way to the Kingdom of Heaven."]

    NOTE: It's about spiritual cowards like these that Jesus said,

    "Woe unto thee ... for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

    "But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

    I am against the shepherds

    "And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

    "But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee." (Matthew 11:21-24)

    There will be a reckoning some day for the leaders of today's evangelical church. It's not without reason that God has said:

    "As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;

    "Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

    "Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand ..." (Ezekiel 34:8-10)


    But the "Gospel of the Kingdom" not only rips away the mask behind which those who support the American New World Order System hide, it announces that - in the words of a popular folk song of the 1960s - there's a "NEW world coming;" a NEW kingdom HERE ON EARTH; it's the same kingdom that Jesus spoke of at the "Last Supper" when He -

    The Last Supper painted by Leonardo da Vinci

    "... took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

    "And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

    "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

    "But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, UNTIL THAT DAY WHEN I DRINK IT NEW WITH YOU IN MY FATHER'S KINGDOM." (Matt. 26:26-29)

    "My Father's kingdom!" - that's what Jesus called it; a kingdom, the substance of which Jesus prayed would become as real ON EARTH as it is in heaven; this is the kingdom for which Jesus told His disciples to pray:

    "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done IN EARTH, as it is in heaven ..." (Matt. 6:9-10) [In other words, May Your kingdom, dear Father, be as real ON EARTH as it is in heaven.]


    The kingdom being proclaimed here - as we indicated in the Preface to this article - will be a kingdom grounded in social justice for ALL mankind, a world of equity where men are not divided up between the "owners of capital" on the one hand and "labor" on the other hand, and where men and women are not divided up on the basis of their race or even their gender (Gal. 3:28); where the rich do not oppress the poor; where every man has equal access to God; where privileges cannot be bought by the wealthy; where there are no death squads, no poverty, no torture, no hunger, no disease, and no room for oppressors of any kind. [Please see our article, "Capitalism and Christianity."]

    Very obviously, such a kingdom would be TOTALLY at variance to the world we now live in and with the American New World Order System that now prevails on the earth - especially the kind of world we described in our article, "The Horror of John Dimitri Negroponte and everything He Represents." [Please see that article plus our article, "Algeria: A Study of the Dreadful, Two-Tiered Economic System the U.S. Is Promoting Among Its Muslim Client-States."]

    A world based on social justice where the rich do not oppress the poor? A world where there are no John Dimitri Negropontes, no Liamine Zerouals and no Augusto Pinochets? This, of course, is something much more than the "good news" of salvation, because while the "good news" of salvation promises redemption to the INDIVIDUAL, it does not promise to "make over" the world per se, and this is evidenced by the fact that from Pentecost until now there has been NO social justice and NO equity between and among men; tyranny and oppression have continued to flourish; and sickness, poverty and hunger have continued to wreak their horrible work on mankind. [We URGE you to see our article, "The Good News of the Coming Kingdom" to acquaint yourself with the differences between the "Gospel of Salvation" and the "Gospel of the Kingdom." It is absolutely important that you distinguish between the two.]


    Brothers and sisters, Do you have the courage of Julian Assange? I dearly hope so - because if you don't, God is perfectly capable of letting you go and raising up others who have this kind of courage. To this end, Jesus warned His disciples:

    "... a certain man made a great supper, and bade many:

    "And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.

    "And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.

    "And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

    "And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.

    "So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

    "And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.



    And exactly who will be those who eventually make it into Christ's supper? - I tell you the truth, they are the Julian Assanges of this world, not people like my twin brother and Richard Paradise - people who "play at "prophecy," but do nothing MEANINGFUL concerning it.

    More later.

    God bless you all!
