Wikileaks' Julian Assange Uses Berlin Press Conference to Promote His Book, and Shit a Brick On The Altar of History
After telling the world he had damning information on Hillary, after claiming he had to cancel his "balcony event" in Ecuador, and move the big announcement to Berlin,
Julian Assange shit a brick.
There was nothing. Just cheap hucksterism.
He literally promoted his book. You know, like Howard Stern, or, like Hillary did at last week's debate:
The presentation from WikiLeaks started at 4 AM Eastern time and went on for more than an hour before Assange took the floor. He spoke for a half an hour or more and then – wikileaks assange After creating a media frenzy Assange said nothing. He TROLLED the world. ... and then promoted his book.It was speculated at this blog that Assange's head fake, in moving the event, might be the precursor to an announcement of a plea deal.
I largely rejected that notion, believing Assange was a more principled man than that; believing he had much bigger, historical fish to fry.
But, I think, at this point, we can expect Assange to make a stab at a plea deal. And, I don't think it will work out. I think once they get a good handle on where he is, and once the rest of the world is looking somewhere else, he will be assassinated.
Simple as that.
And he will pass from the stage of history, and shrunken, shriveled man.
