Assange loses extradition fight

WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange lost a court battle to stay in the United Kingdom Wednesday and will be extradited to Sweden to face questioning over sex charges, a court ruled.

Appeals court judges Lord Justice John Thomas and Justice Duncan Ouseley rejected all four of the arguments Assange's defense team used to fight the extradition.

They will hold another hearing later this month to determine whether he can appeal.

Assange, who has been under house arrest for nearly a year while waiting to find out the results, said Wednesday he will now consider his next steps.

    Mr Assange: for what its worth, you have my unwavering support and my belief that you are being persecuted for 'pulling the covers' off of a lot of fake diplomacy to reveal the actual bs. Thank you.

    If you 'turn up' dead, at least we'll never believe it was suicide, an accident, or 'drug related'.

    I can't wait for wikileaks cables on medical fraud to be published. It's gonna be like firewood for me to burn this house down. (not that I haven't already done my part here showing that prion proteins don't cause disease like your nrainwashed doktor says. Prions are what you body produces to fight what you've done to your own gluttenous body. Flies don't cause garbage to happen, in other words. I hope wiki cables show some medical "diplomats" for what they are...fraudsters who sell pharmaceuticals for profit RATHER than for hippocratic oath health. Drugs NEVER cure. They just keep your own body from doing it for you. C'mon wiki medical fraud cables! Get out here where I can read them and throw some wood on this fire ! 🙂

    'Gluttunous'? or how you spell. It's not every day I get the opportunity to use this word. Just like nature sends flies to deal with garbage left out, your nody naturally produces prion proteins to deal with the garbage you left inside yourself. Prions and germs don't cause disease! They are natures 'houseflys' sent to cure you! But you keep swatting them with dangerous pharmaceuticals! Get a clue people! Research the truth about germs and prions before they poison you with chemical "therapy" aka chemotherapy.
