Sometimes the scofflaw attitude of the current Rogue Deep State government of the United States makes you want to gag. The hypocrisy is astounding. One law for the United States and another law for the rest of the planet. Here are three cases that clearly illustrate what I'm getting at.
Countries sign extradition agreements with one another in order to prevent fugitives from hiding out in one another's countries. It is a reciprocal arrangement. The United States thinks extradition is meant for them alone--to chase down whistleblowers and others who fight against their corporatist empire's god-given right to own and manipulate the world's economy.
Julian Assange has been held prisoner in the London Equadorian Embassy for years now because he is a world-class whistleblower through his Internet Website WikiLeaks. Criminals in the US elite like Hillary Clinton would love to get their hands on him because he's revealing their mendacity and possibly ruining Hillary's electoral chances next November. So they rigged up a case against him through vassal state Sweden...where Sweden has accused him of rape and wants to extradite him to Sweden--from where he can be sent to the US...and treated like Chelsea Manning. Ecuador does not have an extradition agreement with the US, so that's why he's "safe" in their Embassy. It is a complicated ongoing travesty of justice. But wait...it get's worse.
Kim Dotcom of Megaupload fame is holding out in New Zealand. The US has already destroyed him financially...for inventing a competitor to their Internet Cartel of Google and YouTube, etc. But now they want to bring him to the US and destroy him personally with their corrupt "legal system" by imprisoning him as an example to anyone else who might want to tread on their turf. Here is their case against Dotcom.
Despite opposition from the US, a New Zealand court last week granted permission for Kim Dotcom to livestream his legal bid to fight the extradition appeal. Dotcom remains wanted by US authorities who accuse him of copyright infringement, racketeering and money laundering in connection with the seized Megaupload site.
Rothken, however, said that the US does not have any legal grounds upon which to indict Kim Dotcom, as there is the so-called Safe Harbor agreement which applies to “ISPs from any criminal liability” and laws with the New Zealand that “do not make any kind of species of alleged infringement even a crime.” Kim Dotcom who lost all his assets because of the US court orders has been indignant about the whole situation.
“The United States has indicted me with copyright infringement even though I’m not directly charged with that infringing of files…and because I use my treaty rights to fight extradition, a US court has found that I’m now a fugitive and under the fugitive disentitlement they have forfeited all my assets which now belong to the United States government,” Dotcom told RT's Max Keiser.
Gulen back to Turkey
Assange + Kim Dotcom + Gulen = stomach churning hypocrisy
