British Home Secretary signs extradition order to send Julian Assange to US: *Updated

Updated at the bottom of the comment thread.

Via RT.com today:

“Britain's Home Secretary has revealed he has signed a request for the extradition of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange to the US, where he is accused of violating the Espionage Act.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today program, Sajid Javid said that he signed and certified the papers on Wednesday, with the order going before the UK courts on Friday."

Do you believe? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a hypocrite.

For the measly sum of $4500, will you do your part in reducing outside influence for congress critters?

Yep. Voting against cost of living increases for members of Congress may sound nice, but doing so only increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.
This makes campaign finance reform *harder.*
ALL workers deserve cost of living increases, incl min wage workers.

Massive anti-government protests in Latin America; but not the one you are thinking of

Election fraud. Presidential drug trafficking. Huge anti-government protests and strikes in the name of democracy and freedom, that are brutally crushed by security forces. Tens of thousands of refugees.

This is Honduras today.
Unlike Venezuela, Honduras is a close US ally, so the media coverage has been practically non-existent.

genocidaire Narendra Modi wins 5 more years in a landslide victory


I do understand that many readers may complain again about the length of this diary..  But I’d ask you to consider what Modi’s victory means not only geopolitically in his search to become a Major Nuclear Power World Leader via Nationalism and militarism, as the West cheers him on.  Further consider India having the second highest population on the planet, but ruled by a handful of Modi’s cronies who desire nothing less than ruling Southeast Asia while tied to the US. You might consider as well  what it means for the majority Muslim people of Kashmir, caught between Pakistan and India two nations, while Modi intends to use nuclear Pakistan for his own ends.

Now this was written a week before the election, but contains an interesting theory: ‘Explaining Narendra Modi’s Global Image Victory’; Modi’s biggest image-building weapon is neither in his control nor in his consciousness’, Arjun Appadurai, May 22, 2019

Bernie Goes Bold

I say it is a very good thing, indeed, that Bernie Sanders speaks his truth about Socialism. now. That he tells Americans how they've been asset stripped by deregulation, by greedy corporations chasing cheap labor in Asia, by tax cuts for the rich that never create good jobs, and by the crushing costs of unnecessary wars that create fabulous wealth for the war profiteers — while leaving them with the entire bill. He's expectedly to boldly explain to the nation what Socialism means, and give the American people some time to think about how much their lives could improve in a nation that puts the well-being of the People first.
