Apple Co-Founder - Internet freedoms at risk

Julian Assange
Persecuted by governments around the world for simply telling the truth on the Internet.

Steve Wozniak:  Internet freedoms at risk
  • The co-founder of Apple Computers speaks out on Internet freedom.
  • Governments create phony charges against Internet users to shut them down.
  • You will only find this interview on the Internet.  The controlled major media will ignore it and feed you the latest celebrity sex change story as the "news" of the day.

The governments of the world are scared shit-less of a free Internet.

Simply, an average person can click a mouse and send information exposing government corruption and lies around the world in one second.  The Elites are not able to control the net like they can a few TV network or newspaper executives.

More and more you have Internet Blogs breaking hard news stories that the "major media" somehow does not know exists.  Blogs are effectively the modern version of newspapers, but governments do not want Blogs protected by Freedom of the Press laws.

Now Ecuador has granted political asylum to Wikileak's founder Julian Assange two months after he took refuge in its London embassy while fighting extradition from the UK.

The governments of the world cannot wait to close down his Internet newspaper called Wikileaks. 

As if by "magic" Assange was accused of sex crimes right after publishing government secrets.  The Elites will do anything to keep control.
Espionage Act prosecution of Assange
  • Both political parties demand a crackdown on the Internet.
  • The Espionage Act has the death penalty attached.

The Bill of Rights and the first Amendment are alien to the modern political leadership of the United States.  Members of both parties have urged that Australian citizen Assange be arrested for treason.

His crime is daring to publish information that government does not approve.

Republican Congressman Peter King, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder, asking that Assange should be prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917, and that he should be declared a terrorist. The same day, Rep. King also wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, requesting that she designate Wikileaks as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
"I am calling on the attorney general and supporting his efforts to fully prosecute Wikileaks and its founder for violating the Espionage Act. And I’m also calling on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to declare Wikileaks a foreign terrorist organization," King said on WNIS radio.
"By doing that, we will be able to seize their funds and go after anyone who provides them help or contributions or assistance whatsoever,” he said. “To me, they are a clear and present danger to America."
On 30 November 2010, on Fox News, Rep. King repeated his assertions that Wikileaks was a terrorist organization.

Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein and GOP Senator Kit Bond, respectively, the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, sent a joint-letter to Attorney General Holder, asking him to prosecute Mr. Assange under the Espionage Act. In televised interviews Senators Bond and Feinstein stated that:
"We believe that Mr. Assange's conduct is espionage and that his actions fall under the elements of this section of law....Therefore, we urge that he be prosecuted under the Espionage Act."

Punishments under the Espionage Act can include the death penalty.

The US Internet  -  Censorship 
The US government spends millions to shut down Internet freedom

Calls for Assange's assassination

The insane talk from the Elite ruling classes types has gotten out of control.

  • On 30 November 2010, Tom Flanagan, a former aide to the Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, called for Assange's assassination. Mr. Flanagan later retracted his comments, after a Vancouver lawyer filed a complaint with the Calgary Police against Harper, and Canadian nationals filed complaint with the ombudsman of CBC news.

  • On 1 December 2010, Republican Mike Huckabee called for those behind the leak of the cables to be executed, a view partly supported by Kathleen McFarland, former Pentagon advisor under Nixon, Ford and Reagan and current Fox News national security expert.

  • On 6 December 2010, during a segment of the Fox Business show Follow The Money, Fox News political commentator and Democrat analyst Bob Beckel stated, "A dead man can't leak stuff. This guy's a traitor, he's treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. [...] And I'm not for the death penalty, so [...] there's only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch." Other guests on the program agreed.

Governments around the world are frightened to death of the free
flow of information on the Internet.  Both American political parties
are working to limit Internet freedom.
