WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange Confirms Internet Restored at Ecuadorian Embassy

Internet “intentionally severed” during publication of Podesta emails

During the interview Assange also commented on Hillary Clinton’s presidential loss and his views on Trump’s burgeoning administration.

“Hillary Clinton’s election would have been a consolidation of power in the existing ruling class of the United States,” Assange said. “Donald Trump is not a DC insider, he is part of the wealthy ruling elite of the United States, and he is gathering around him a spectrum of other rich people and several idiosyncratic personalities.”

“They do not by themselves form an existing structure, so it is a weak structure which is displacing and destabilizing the pre-existing central power network within DC. It is a new patronage structure which will evolve rapidly, but at the moment its looseness means there are opportunities for change in the United States: change for the worse and change for the better.”

Looking back on 10 years of publishing, Assange highlighted WikiLeaks’ ability to shed light on the establishment’s “illusion of power.”

“Power is mostly the illusion of power. The Pentagon demanded we destroy our publications. We kept publishing,” Assange said. “Clinton denounced us and said we were an attack on the entire ‘international community.’ We kept publishing.”

“I was put in prison and under house arrest. We kept publishing. We went head to head with the NSA getting Edward Snowden out of Hong Kong, we won and got him asylum. Clinton tried to destroy us and was herself destroyed. Elephants, it seems, can be brought down with string. Perhaps there are no elephants”.

  1. Oh what a picture he paints, an elephant wearing a pantsuit. But isn’t this a godly scenario, in which He turns around a situation so the one who sets out to destroy is destroyed herself? Haman was hung on the gallows he built for Mordechai. “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” (Gen 50:20)
