Assange Twitter Account Returns As #ReconnectJulian Campaign Takes Over

Julian Assange's twitter account has started tweeting again, but not because Ecuadorian authorities have restored his access to the Internet. Instead, his Twitter account has been taken over by a group of supporters leading the campaign to #ReconnectJulian.


In late March, the Ecuadorian government decided to suspend Assange's Internet access due to his controversial tweets in support of Carles Puigdemont, the Catalan leader who had been detained in Germany. Ecuador's new government, according to RT, was facing intense diplomatic pressure from its European ally, Spain.

Assange's supporters announced their takeover in a tweet:

Here’s a translation of a statement released by the government of Ecuador late last month when it decided to suspend Assange's Internet access, phone access and ability to receive visitors because Assange had refused to stop commenting on the political affairs of other nations.

The Government of Ecuador suspended the systems that allow Julian Assange to communicate with the outside world from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the citizen remains in an international protection situation for six years due to the risk to his life and integrity.

The measure was adopted in the face of Assange’s failure to comply with the written commitment it assumed with the Government at the end of 2017, for which it was obliged not to issue messages that implied interference with other States.

The Government of Ecuador warns that the behavior of Assange, with its messages through social networks, puts at risk the good relations that the country maintains with the United Kingdom, with the rest of the States of the European Union and other nations. Therefore, to prevent potential damage, the embassy in London interrupted this March 27 communications abroad to which Assange has access.

The Executive also keeps open the way to the adoption of new measures in the face of breach of commitment by Assange.

Shortly after the statement was released, supporters of Assange gathered in front of the embassy in London where they stood in solidarity for hours.

In the weeks that followed, the campaign to restore Assange's Internet access has picked up many high-profile supporters including Brian Eno, former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, journalist John Pilger and Noam Chomsky; a petition demanding an end to Assange's isolation has garnered more than 65,000 signatures.

Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since he sought asylum there in 2012. Assange entered the embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden which had wanted him for questioning in regard to an alleged sexual assault. Assange feared that if he was brought into custody in Sweden, it would only be a matter of time before he was extradited to the US, where he would face charges over Wikileaks' publishing of US diplomatic cables and other sensitive information, per RT.

Ecuador had granted him citizenship in December in a failed attempt to allow him to leave under diplomatic immunity. However, Ecuador's new president, Lenin Moreno, is less sympathetic to Assange's cause, considering him an "inherited problem" from the government of Rafael Correa.

The fate of Assange will become an especially sensitive issue once former CIA director Mike Pompeo, with whom Assange has repeatedly clashed, becomes Trump's new Secretary of State following his imminent confirmation.

It's likely that the British authorities would just jam any signal, which is why it's unlikely Assange can use a cellphone/LTE.  In the case of satellite, the Americans would just get their British vassals to block Ecuador from allowing it.  Or just simply threaten Ecuador.  Again.  Seems to be working quite well.  I believe Assange had network access via the Ecuadorian government, and with the change in government there, they simply decided to block Assange from using their system.

To get Assange back online would likely require a non-standard approach of some sort.

Really, when was the last time Assange discussed the manipulation of the US elections by Zionist jewish forces?


We all know Russia did not do it, but that was just a distraction, to hide what is right in front of our faces. Both parties biggest backers are Zionist Jews. Sheldon Adleson, Haim Saban, Peter Theil, Geoege Soroa, all "American" Zionists, who support Israel over all else. We have voting machines that are totally hackable, and we have reports of numerous voting irregularities. 


The whole system stinks, Clinton is as much as a Zionist whore as Trump, as Obama, as Bill al.

Did Julian Assange Say Israel is the Greatest Threat to America? Is Reliable?

It would behoove the alternative media to steer clear or research and source any articles or information disseminated by this so-called news site. We can clearly see from the article re-posted on their website on December 18, 2016, that they added “said Assange” to the end of a statement made originally by Philip Giraldi... was contacted by Nicky Nelson, a geopolitical researcher and writer, and asked to correct or pull this article back in December, but they refused to do so.… 


To his credit Assange does criticizes Israel though:

"The whole system stinks . . . "

Here's a plan: GFO. Go somewhere that allows terminally insane shit-swarming flies like yourself to pollute society with your increasingly insane hate-pimping.

TYLERS: Share with us why you allow these low-life to pollute your site. Infect our computers and networks. Make your articles impossible to link because people will wonder why anyone decent would go to a site populated with hate-pimps?

Twitter account returns...

There are Twitter alternatives Julian...

PS> Julian, since you are being sued, as part of discovery, are you going to release your source for the Podesta emails? I know you say you never give up sources, but if the person is dead, and you're being sued, and releasing the source would nuke those suing you...well, maybe it's time to rewrite your disclosure rules.

If Assange was a real threat to the establishment, you would never hear from him again.


The idea that the ZioMedia plays right along, giving Assange tons of gravitas, more than anything, proves he is not as honest as he lets on. 


Americans never hear about real threats to the state, instead we are given Hollywood contrived theater, meant to make us think we are getting the truth. As always, we are getting halve truths, enough to keep us of the trail of the real evil, Zionism.

I remember when Ron Paul was running for President, and was doing great, the Zionist media totally ignored him. The Zionists have 100% control over the media, social as well, there is a reason they INSTALLED a Jew as the owner of facebook. 


The Zionist jews have all the money, and anytime a technology rises that can threaten their stranglehold on the truth, they move in. You either sell out to them, or you are "suicided", like so many of Clinton's adversaries (to be sure, the Clinton's are just mega traitors, they are not the power, but they are loyal Zionists "shabbos", so they are protected by those they serve). 


If Assange was real, he WOULD BE DEAD. They can pull off 9/11 and Trump, they can pull off anything, and the idiot masses will eat it right up.

No internet, no visitors.

So Ecuador has put Assange in solitary confinement.

What for? Rape charges dismissed even the woman said it wasn't rape.

He is a journalist, he reports facts. Some classified like the NY Times reported when Comey's friend passed classified information to him. Is that lawyer who received classified information and passed it to the Times for publication in prison now?

''''''''''''DNC took the bait and and sued, now Assange is open again and we are going to get info that the FBI would go get.

Down boy, down...all the incriminating "evidence" against the Democrats has been "wiped". Democrats are going to keep this a headline story right into midterms and then arrive in court having destroyed the evidence against themselves. A judge then throws the whole thing out...didn't Trump predict this?...for maximum victimization, the Judge will be a rightwinger, maybe even a Trump appointee, so the Democrats and the MSM can cry about how corrupt Trump is and how his pocket Judge threw out their solid case and saved Trump from jail.

Just watch.

Absolutely NOTHING, that is how we know he is just another controlled asset, very much like Trump.


The idea that the lying ZioMedia would be giving this guy air time if he was really an enemy of the state, is ludicrous. 


I fell for him too, initially, but when he consistently omitted any criticisms of Israel, that were not already common knowledge, I smelled gefilte fish.

Sometimes I feel like a dickhead being so repetitive, but as a drummer, I see the analogy as such: sometimes you have to maintain focus on being repetitive, relatively boring, and somewhat simple, for the betterment of the song.  It's integral, actually.  If you don't do it (be the foundation), then no one will, and the song will devolve off into incoherent nonsense.

Not the right kind of support to keep Assange off the Arkanicide hit list.

At least Trump won, otherwise Equador would have had an Arab spring shoved up their ass and that embassy droned by now.

"Arab Spring"...LOL...when I first heard that, and learned of what it was, then learned Hillary was behind it...Clear that it wasn't "Spring" was "Freedom and Democracy" time again in the ME to be kicked off by the need to remove Dictators that "gas their own people"...and that lot's of Brown people are about to be killed by the USA's "Freedom Fighters".

Boy was I savagely 'down-voted' for that in certain circles...

I want the US government to just declare tech companies public utilities already so that rules of free speech apply all the tie everywhere. Shouldn't be up to private companies to regulate speech in a free society. 

What I say on a Verizon phone account shouldn't be filtered or anybody else's business. If someone doesn't like what I put on Facebook then they don't have to look at it. 

Why don't these book burning fascist companies just make user controlled content filters so the users can choose for themselves?

Assange will always call it the way he see's it.  But with that said I am very surprised President Trump has not freed him.  It could help Trump's cause here, and settle the Russian issues.

We have several notable political prisoners around the world.  The reason power hates to be told the truth.

Assange is "controlled opposition". A man who releases tons of information, damming to the CIA's and Israel's enemies, is by no means a threat to the same. 


Israel is neck deep in every conflict around the world, yet rarely make an appearance in Assange's "leaks". Assange is hyped by the ZioMedia as an "enemy of the state", yet we are to believe the lying media here?


The media lies ALL THE TIME, if Assange was a real enemy of the state, the ZioMedia and Social Media would IGNORE HIM< like they do all those who don't read from the script.
