Julian Assange is one of the greatest journalists of all time.

He exposed inconvenient truths to the public and, in turn, threatened the interests of those in power.

For that, he is treated like a criminal, instead of the hero that he is.

In 2010, WikiLeaks published a secret cache of documents titled “Collateral Murder, 5 Apr 2010.” This included a gunsight video from an Apache helicopter showing the killing of civilians in Baghdad. As such, the U.S. government’s misleading statements about the event were exposed, extending to the Pentagon’s claim that the video didn’t even exist.

Assange’s release of Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails disrupted the 2016 presidential race, revealing internal bias against Bernie Sanders in favor of rigging the Democratic primary for Hillary Clinton. Contrary to claims of Russian hacking, the emails were leaked by a disgruntled DNC employee.

Assange’s final major revelation involved an illegal CIA spying program in 2017. Although WikiLeaks withheld certain details to protect American national security, this was a major embarrassment to the CIA.

As such, the establishment wants to get rid of the Julian Assange problem — for good.

Assange, an Australian citizen, faces charges of violating the US Espionage Act and the potential for a staggering 175-year prison sentence if convicted.

He is set to appear before two High Court judges in London on February 20-21, 2024, in what will likely be his final appeal against extradition to the United States.

This “may be the final chance for Julian Assange to prevent his extradition to the United States,” WikiLeaks warned.

His father, John Shipton, joins us with an exclusive interview.
