Julian Assange’s Health Is So Bad He ‘Could Die in Prison’, According to Letter from 60 Doctors

More than 60 doctors have written an open letter warning that the health of WikiLeaks’ founder, Julian Assange, 48, is so bad that he could die inside a British jail. The doctors are calling to have him transferred from Belmarsh Prison to a hospital, and have based their opinion on eyewitness accounts of his court appearance in October and a report by Nils Melzer, the United Nations special rapporteur on torture.

Sweden dropped its 2010 rape investigation against Assange, removing an obstacle to extraditing him to the US. He faces 18 charges under the Espionage Act in the US for his publication of the Iraq and Afghan War Logs. If extradited and convicted, he could be face a maximum sentence of 175 years for the “crime” of publishing material that the US government did not want the population to know.

 

More than 60 doctors have written an open letter saying they fear Julian Assange’s health is so bad that the WikiLeaks founder could die inside a top-security British jail.

The 48-year-old Australian is still fighting a US bid to extradite him from Britain on charges filed under the Espionage Act that could see him given a sentence of up to 175 years in a US prison.

In the letter to the British home secretary, Priti Patel, the doctors called for Assange to be moved from Belmarsh prison in southeast London to a university teaching hospital.

They based their assessment on “harrowing eyewitness accounts” of his 21 October court appearance in London and a 1 November report by Nils Melzer, the United Nations special rapporteur on torture.

The independent UN rights expert said Assange’s “continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life”.

Assange used WikiLeaks to publish classified military and diplomatic files in 2010 about US bombing campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq that proved highly embarrassing to Washington.

“We write this open letter, as medical doctors, to express our serious concerns about the physical and mental health of Julian Assange,” the doctors said in their 16-page open letter.

They said they had “concerns about Mr Assange’s fitness” to go through the full extradition hearing, which is set for February.

“Mr Assange requires urgent expert medical assessment of both his physical and psychological state of health,” the wrote.

5-Year Old Boy Was Hurled from the Balcony at Mall of America, and Fell 40 Feet to the Floor. He Is Now Walking, and Credits Angels and Jesus

Minneapolis, Minnesota: Last April, Landen Hoffman, a 5-year old boy, suffered broken bones in his arms and legs after being thrown from the third floor of the Mall of America by Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda. Young Landen did not suffer head trauma, and he is now able to walk “perfectly,” and is attending school with his twin brother. His GoFundMe page has collected over $1 million to help with his medical bills.

Emmanuel Aranda, 24, pleaded guilty to attempted homicide and was sentenced to 19 years in prison. Aranda said that he sometimes has anger issues. He has a past record of harassing patrons and causing property damage at the mall. Aranda’s mother claims her son is mentally ill and does not belong in prison. Aranda is now planning to appeal his sentence.

 

 

The 5-year-old boy who was thrown from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in Minnesota is now walking “perfectly,” and is giving credit to angels who caught him and to the love of Jesus.

In an update on their GoFundMe page Friday, friends of the family of Landen Hoffman noted that the young boy’s condition continues to improve, that they are working toward getting him off of some medications, that he is “walking perfectly” and that the open wound on his belly was at last scabbing over and new skin was growing.

Young Landen Hoffman was thrown 40 feet off a railing by 24-year-old Emmanuel Aranda on April 12.

He was in critical condition following the incident, having suffered from broken arms and legs. Remarkably, however, an MRI showed that he had no damage to the brain despite doctors believing that he had endured head trauma.

Aranda, who told investigators he decided to harm the boy after he went to he mall searching for someone to kill, pleaded guilty to attempted murder in June and was subsequently sentenced to 19 years in prison.

In addition to recovering physically, the 5-year-old boy is also in good spirits.

Paris: Leftist Feminists Attack Other Women For Highlighting Study Showing 52% of Male Rapists Are Migrants

A group of young women who carried signs highlighting a government study which showed 52% of Parisian rape suspects are migrants were attacked by leftist feminists during a protest in Paris. The feminists screamed at them, calling them ‘fascists’ and ‘racists’, ripped up their signs, and assaulted them until they were forced to leave. One of the young women who was bullied by the feminists said that women cannot go out in the streets in France because they are harassed by migrant men and that the foreign men are often not prosecuted for rape.

 

A group of young women highlighting a government study which showed 52 per cent of Parisian rape suspects were foreign nationals were attacked and labeled “fascists” by feminists during a protest in Paris.

Two of the young women’s signs read, “52% of the rapists are foreigners” and “Cologne, Rotherham soon Panam (French slang for Paris).”

The feminists assaulted the women, stole their signs, ripped them up and then chanted, “Feminists, not fascists” and “fascists out,” as the young women were physically intimidated and forced to leave.

“Reminder: we came to this demonstration to denounce the violence against women, and to say aloud what everyone thinks on the profile of the usual attackers … but #NousToutes do not accept all women,” declared Nemesis Nemesis, the group behind the protest.

The signs were in reference to a 2016 study conducted by France’s National Observatory on Crime and Criminal Justice Responses (ONDRP) that found 52 per cent of rape suspects in Paris were “foreign nationals,” a fact acknowledged by left-wing VICE.

The incident served as a reminder of what happened in Cologne after the mass molestation and rape of around 1200 women on New Year’s Eve 2015, predominantly by men of “Arab or North African appearance,” which feminists responded to by subsequently visiting the local migrant center and handing out flowers to migrants while apologizing for “xenophobia.”

Report: Chick-Fil-A Funded Anti-Christian SPLC, and Other Leftist Groups

Tax records show that in 2017, Chick-Fil-A , a Christian company that took a public stand against gay marriage several years ago, donated $2,500 to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a  group that has targeted Christian organizations in the past by categorizing groups that disapprove of same-sex marriage as  “hate-groups.” In 2012, shooter Floyd Corkins,  who was motivated by the SPLC, came after the Family Research Council with a semi-automatic pistol and 15 Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, planning to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.” He wounded the security guard who was able to disarm him. Chick-Fil-A is also funding other left-leaning organizations, that have support Planned Parenthood, abortion and LGBTQ.

In 2017, according to tax records, Chick-Fil-A donated $2,500 to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a  group that has targeted Christian organizations in the past by categorizing groups that disapprove of same-sex marriage as  “hate-groups.”

The Federalist notes:

It was the SPLC that motivated a terrorist shooter in 2012 to launch an assault on the Family Research Council with a semi-automatic pistol, 100 rounds of ammo, and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. “Southern Poverty Law [Center] lists anti-gay groups. I found them online,” said the shooter in an interrogation video made public by the FBI, adding that his plan was to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.”

Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, reacted to the report from Townhall that Chick-fil-A had donated to the SPLC: “Not only has Chick-fil-A abandoned donations to Christian groups including the Salvation Army, it has donated to one of the most extreme anti-Christian groups in America. Anyone who opposes the SPLC…is slandered and slapped with the ‘extremist’ label or even worse, their ‘hate group’ designation. It’s time for Christians to find a fast food alternative to Chick-fil-A.”

Campo, California: Brazen Smugglers Cut ‘Truck-Sized’ Hole in Border Fence and Drove a Truck through It

A group of illegal immigrants breached a pre-Trump version of the border wall in California and drove a stolen truck through the hole, trying to make a ‘brazen’ break for it into the US. US border agents arrested the the driver and 15 passengers, all of whom were from Mexico, except for a man and woman from Guatemala. The border wall in Campo consists of landing mat fencing erected years ago, however, even Trump’s new fencing is not impregnable.

 

 

A group of illegal immigrants breached a pre-Trump version of the border wall in California and drove a truck through the hole, trying to make a “brazen” break for it into the U.S., agents reported Thursday.

The breach happened Wednesday afternoon when a stolen Dodge 4500 utility truck busted through the hole near Campo, California, where the border wall consists of landing mat fencing erected years ago. That’s the type of fencing the Border Patrol is trying to replace with President Trump’s more modern version.

Agents caught up to the migrants after one of them was spotted with bolt cutters trying to cut a lock on a private residence gate, and then spotted the truck that had broken through the wall. They tried to stop the truck but the driver fled.

 

A short pursuit ended with the migrants bailing out of the truck.

Agents managed to round up the driver and 15 passengers: nine Mexican males ranging in age from 15 to 53, five Mexican women from 18 to 40, and two Guatemalans, a 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman.

Arizona: Former Staffer for Radical Democrat Congressman Gets Just 12 Days in Jail for Attacking a Trump Supporter, Resulting in Permanent Injury

Arizona: Last year, Daniel Zaroes Brito, formerly a legislative assistant to US Representative Raul Grijalva, a Democrat, attacked Jonathan Sparks from behind, trying to grab his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat. The unprovoked attack caused Sparks to fall and break his ankle in four places, resulting in permanent damage. Brito continued the attack, punching Sparks while he was lying on the ground, calling him “Hitler” and “Nazi” until bystanders pulled Brito off of the injured Trump fan.

Last year, Daniel Zaroes Brito, former Legislative Assistant to U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), attacked a man who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and waving a sign that read, “Vote Jobs, Not Mobs–Vote Republican.” The victim, Tucson resident Jonathan Sparks, suffered serious injuries in the assault.

 

Brito has now been sentenced to 12 days in the Pima County jail and three years probation.

“The assailant had jumped on to my ankle from behind,” Sparks explained last November. “So I, knowing my ankle was broken into four pieces, turned around to grab and take the hat back and my hands latched on to the hat.”

They both fell to the ground in the altercation. Through it all, Sparks recalled hearing the words, “Hitler” and “Nazi” and “Trump.” Brito then came over on top of him and “over and over again” he hit him.

Sparks spent 20 hours in the hospital and had to undergo surgery.

He mused that if the situation had been different – for instance, if he had been a black man or if he had been waving “a rainbow flag,” there would be “a sea of reporters” on the scene.

“The attack on Jonathan Sparks, a Tucson resident who was exercising his free speech rights, is part of a pattern developing on the Left where people are carrying out random acts of violence against innocent individuals simply because of their political beliefs,” said Republican Party of Arizona Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward in a statement on Tuesday. “I fear that unless he tones down his divisive rhetoric, Rep. Grijalva’s unhinged hatred for President Trump could embolden similar future acts of violence against some of his constituents who support the president.”
