It’s like the Brady Bunch, except all of them are AWARD-WINNING.

Time to check in with Dana Rohrabacher, the elected Republican from Orange County, California, who mostly represents the Kremlin’s interests in Congress (since moving on from being literal actual BFFs with, and we are not kidding here, THE TALIBAN). He’s been traveling again, but this time he didn’t go to Moscow to get marching orders. Instead, he was in London, palling around with one of Moscow’s most finely aged tools, Julian Assange, who is still hiding inside the Ecuadorian embassy like a pussy. If you’re wondering why THE FUCK Rohrabacher is meeting with Assange, you are asking the correct question. If you’re also wondering why THE FUCKITY FUCK the internet’s greatest loser troll, Chuck C. Johnson, also attended the meeting … just holy shit. Because this is a thing that happened.

The Daily Caller explains:

Charles Johnson, a conservative journalist, told TheDC that he arranged the meeting for Assange because the WikiLeaks chief wants to strike a deal with the U.S. so he can stop living in asylum.

Johnson is not a “journalist,” just like Julian Assange is not a “good person,” so let’s not be cute. Just kidding, he is an AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST, which he will tell you all the time, like if you were so desperate for human interaction that you talked to Chuck C. Johnson.

ANYWAY. According to Johnson (whom you’d also know was an award-winning journalist if you googled him, you prick), the deal is that Rohrabacher, doing Moscow’s bidding we guess, will go visit Comrade Trump in the White House, to try to make an Art Of The Deal to let Julian Assange become a free man. And it’s no big deal, because Julian Assange has committed NO CRIMES (certainly nothing rapey in Sweden, and DEFINITELY not working with the Russians to tinker with the 2016 election in favor of one Donald John Trump). Indeed, Assange assured Rohrabacher of that:

After TheDC broke the news of the meeting, Rohrabacher put out a statement in which he said Assange “emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.”

We’re convinced! (Dana Rohrabacher is convinced, because on top of being Moscow’s errand boy, he is also very stupid.)

Of course, it’s possible that Assange has no idea he’s been working for the Russians this whole time. Russia is big on co-opting useful idiots like that.

Here’s the statement from Rohrabacher’s office, confirming the meeting:

We notice a couple things here right off the bat. First of all, it’s creepy and weird that Rohrabacher “plans to divulge more of what he found directly to President Trump,” as if Julian Assange should have a right to be passing fake news love notes to the American president. Also, we’re worried Trump will believe whatever Rohrabacher says Assange told him, because he too is a very stupid and gullible man.

Hey, maybe Assange’s message contains flat-out conspiracy lies about how Hillary Clinton colluded with Ukraine to steal the election from herself! Because that’s the counter-narrative America’s enemies in Moscow and inside the White House want people to believe.

We’re also amused by the editorial paragraph in the congressman’s official statement, where it states as fact that the WikiLeaks emails revealed that the 2016 Democratic primary was #RIGGED against Bernie Sanders. Way to get that Russian dezinformatsiya in there, Congressman! We bet Putin is IMPRESSED.

OK, so Rohrabacher is trying to free Assange from his shackles, he’s passing Assange’s bullshit candygrams on to Trump, and AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST Chuck C. Johnson set it all up. Anything else we should know? Oh just this thing Rohrabacher told The Hill:

“Julian passionately argued the case that WikiLeaks was vital to informing the public about controversial though necessary issues. He hoped that WikiLeaks — an award-winning journalistic operation — might be granted a seat in the White House press corps. As a former newsman myself I can’t see a reason why they shouldn’t be granted news status for official press conferences,” he said.

Holy CHRIST. Look, we know the Trump White House will let any AWARD-WINNING loser troll into its press room, and that the Trump White House is a big fan of all kinds of apeshit AWARD-WINNING fake news reported by dudes who raise money for ACTUAL NAZIS, but even in Trump’s America of 2017, some things should still be considered beyond the pale, and JULIAN FUCKING ASSANGE IN THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS ROOM IS ONE OF THEM.

We reiterate: WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY? To all of this!

WHY is Chuck C. Johnson arranging meetings between Republican congressmen and Julian Assange to convince Trump to spring him from Ecuadorian embassy prison and give him a free ticket to the White House? And does CIA Director Mike Pompeo know about this? Because we seem to remember Pompeo recently calling Assange a literal Nazi. And does Attorney General Jeff Sessions know about this? Because we’re pretty sure Sessions announced in April that it’s a “priority” for his Justice Department to put Assange IN AMERICAN JAIL.

Fuck this, as it’s making our head hurt worse than it already was.

    • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

      I got into it with that “What, Me Worry?” guy a few days back when he gave me a bunch of links to read that he claimed proved that the DNC and Clinton collaborated. When I pointed out that they did nothing of the kind, his response was effectively “NUH UH YEAH THEY DO”.

      In retrospect, not the most fruitful conversation.

      • Donkey Option

        They never are. I think the funniest thing is that the people who supported Bernie in the primary were really shocked that the democratic party wasn’t completely on his side, especially since he didn’t join the democratic party until right before he was running. I don’t even know how to explain how weird that is. It would be like someone who just moved to your neighborhood being annoyed that they weren’t elected to be in charge of the homeowner’s association and lost to someone who’d lived there for 30 years.

        • BosGrl

          I supported Bernie in the primary and when he lost, I said, OK, we have another great candidate. I supported Hillary in 2008, too, and again, was glad we had two great people to choose from. Why the Bernie Bros don’t see this is beyond me.

          • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

            Part of that was Bernie himself: he really bought into his own propaganda and has a tendency towards a martyr’s complex. Martyrs, of course, need persecutors, and he readily bought into and spread the idea that Clinton was cheating.

          • BosGrl

            Yeah, we voted fairly early in MA and he did start that shit, you’re right.

          • SDGeoff3

            Same here. I left the Greens (among other reasons) to vote for Senator Sanders, and if he hadn’t made it, I was fully and happily prepared to vote for Mrs Clinton. And I did: with bells on. I cannot believe this Sanders/Clinton crap is still festering.

          • Longstreet63

            Because some people can’t bear to lose, and if they can’t win, they were cheated, and therefore will try and knock all the pieces off so they can claim they were going to win.
            I know lots of people like that.

        • Longstreet63

          Yet, I know people who would feel exactly like that.

    Can someone clarify for me why Assange should be put in an American prison?

    Because of a Swedish rape investigation that is no longer in effect?

    Because of Wikileaks’ publication of Iraq War and Guantanamo Bay documents?

    Because of the DNC emails?

    Or just because he’s an asshole?

    • Crystalclear12

      Well, currently Trump wants him in jail because he’s afraid Assange will rat him out.

    • because shut up is why.

    • Longstreet63

      I’m not sure. Why is he still hiding in that embassy if he isn’t wanted?

      • AJ Milne

        Free food, and his mom kicked him outta his basement…

        … also, he’s pretty much used to being unwanted.

        (..and, seriously, while Sweden has essentially just made the investigation inactive because they’ve no practical way forward (it is absolutely not an exoneration)..

        a) the UK can still grab him for skipping bail, and

        b) should he become available again, Sweden could reopen the investigation.)

      • TEX Dept. of Space Tacos

        he believes (and rightly so)
        that he leaves and goes home, they’ll just refile the charges.

        not sure what the statute of limitations is for this crime in that country.

        • Longstreet63

          Swedish prison. I can’t decide if that sounds horrible or awesome.

          • TEX Dept. of Space Tacos

            i forget which one of those country’s it is, but they have a totally different view of prison than the U.S.

            They’re basically dorm rooms, cable tv, video games. Apparently numbers show it reduces recidivism and violence in the prison.

          • FlownΩver

            Yeah, but they don’t start with the number of entitled, gun-humping assholes we have here. Our basketful would riot over the choice of cable channels.

          • Permit-holder Ron

            I’ve seen pictures. I wish my first apartment had been that nice.

        • HarpyLibtart

          I don’t think it was so much the Swedish charges, he seemed convinced that the Swedes would just bundle him up and extradite him back to the US as soon as they were done with him, which they probably would…
          But if he didn’t want to get extradited, he probably shouldn’t have (yeah, I know, we have to say allegedly) raped that lady.
          I mean, it seems like basic common sense to me, if I was going to thumb my nose at the US Government after embarrassing them worldwide, I’m damn sure not going to run around on a European tour raw-dogging strangers, leaving myself open to both kompromat and STD’s….
          Like c’mon dude, you’re supposed to be SMART.

    • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

      I would point out that the only person in the article who said Assange should be in jail was Sessions.

    • TEX Dept. of Space Tacos

      i am not a lawyer – but yeah, the last two. If he broke U.S. laws, we could ask for extradition.

    • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

      The Swedish investigation is suspended because they can’t get to him. Should he emerge from the embassy, they can easily reinitiate and arrest him. But that’s the Swede’s call.
      There is the issue that if he was provided documents that were classified and/or stolen, he could be prosecuted under Title 18, Section 798 of the United States Code.(which carries a term of imprisonment of not more than 10 years)

      • marxalot

      I think Sweden dropped the charges altogether. He’s still wanted by the Brits for doing a runner on them, and he’ll get picked up for that if he leaves.

      • jesterpunk

        Sweden only dropped the charges because Assange is hiding in the embassy basement and Swedish law says they have to try someone quickly. But if he leaves the embassy basement before 2020 they can try him.

        http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-39973864

        At a press briefing on Friday, Ms Ny said that by remaining in the embassy in London Mr Assange had evaded the exercise of the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) that would have seen him extradited to Sweden.

        She said that under Swedish law a criminal investigation needed to be conducted “as quickly as possible”.

        Sweden did not expect Ecuador’s co-operation in formally notifying Mr Assange of the allegations against him, a necessary step in proceeding with the case, she added.

        But she said: “If he were to return to Sweden before the statute of limitation on this case expires in August 2020, the preliminary investigation could be resumed.”

        She said it was “regrettable we have not been able to carry out the investigation”, and added: “We are not making any pronouncement about guilt.”

    • Because the Obama-bots have wiretapped his emailz!

  • Permit-holder Ron

    I am enjoying the idea that Two Scoops gets it into his fat head that he can pardon Assange. For something or other. And tells him he can come to the US and have an audience with His Orangeness. So Assange somehow evades the people watching for him to leave the embassy and gets on a flight to ‘Murica. And the SECOND the plane levels out three disguised US Marshals get up and handcuff the little shit to his seat, and when they land the FBI carts him off the plane for a few hours of ‘friendly questioning.’
    Just a thought. Just a thought.

  • gene108

    Serious question, if Assange steps out of the Ecuadorian embassy, isn’t the first order of the day is the Brits arrest him for rape charges in Sweden?

    I know some in America want to arrest him, but have we actually put together an actual case against him that would supersede the Swedish rape charges, with regards to whom the Brits send him to for trial?

    • capnkrunch

      Nope. Unfortunately.

      So when Sweden’s prosecutors announced on Friday that they were abandoning their attempt to extradite him, invalidating the warrant for his arrest, Mr. Assange proclaimed it a happy moment of vindication. “Today was an important victory,” he said.

      Source: New York Times

  • gilderbeast

    Let’s assume that Assange did indeed not colab with the Russians

    Seriously…if it’s freaking obvious to me, even without meeting him and with no previous training, that Assange is the kind of self-adoring asshat who needs to feel like he’s the super-cool dude with all the inside info, and that he’s in control of every situation he’s in, then it would take a Russian spy about 2.4 seconds to figure that out and structure his manipulation accordingly.

    Evan (please forward this to Glenn Greenwald from me – he’ll know who it’s from):

    Would you care to know WHY/HOW Rohrbacher can support ISIS on the one hand and neo-Nazis (looking at you Chuck Johnson/Weev. et. al.) on the other? Here’s a clue:

    Southern Poverty Law Center (2002): “In the wake of Sept. 11, new light is thrown on the international ties increasingly linking Muslim and neo-Nazi extremists.”

    https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/intelligence-report/2002/national-alliance-holocaust-deniers-react-911-attacks

    As Syrian refugees fled to the West to escape ISIS, there was a sudden onslaught of Muslim “immigrants” assaulting European women, at which point the European Nazis (who had been equally brutal toward women) rose up to “defend” the victims. Bullshit. Extremists are working together. They have a history of it. Why? To destroy Western democracies… see also: Putin. .Just recently, neo-Nazis attempted to exploit the Barcelona attacks and got their arses kicked.

    THAT is why we do NOT defend terrorists of ANY stripe. We learn, rather, to separate the innocent (mainstream Muslims) from the guilty: Muslim terrorists. THIS is not how we go about it (looking at you, Greenwald):
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/sep/07/democrats-parade-osama-bin-laden-corpse >>> https://thedailybanter.com/2014/10/ipad-hacker-released-jail-parties-glenn-greenwald-publishes-neo-nazi-screeds/

    P.S. Greenwald’s defense of Nazis: “free speech” my arse, Greenwald, you ratferking maniac:
    https://theintercept.com/2017/08/13/the-misguided-attacks-on-aclu-for-defending-neo-nazis-free-speech-rights-in-charlottesville/

    YOU LOSE: “Civil Liberties Body ACLU Will No Longer Defend Gun-Carrying Protest Groups”

    BTW, Greenwald, thanks bunches:) All it took was for Nazis to show up armed in public for the left to understand why we do not get in bed with Nazis (or Puitn) AND why we DO NOT hand our government to the likes of Trump and his cabal of fascists because “both sides,” you despicable lying fuck:

    http://dneiwert.blogspot.com/2007/11/dark-side-of-paul-phenomenon.html

    Oh, and Greenwald: Trump is going down, Assange is going down, Ron Paul is going down, the Nazis are going down, the GOP and their Koch handlers are going down, and you’re finished. Bank. on. it. I see jail time in your future (Trump/Russia). Your pro-Putin propaganda will finally seal the deal.
