Ecuador tells Julian Assange that he can have the internet back if he feeds his cat and cleans his bathroom.

So wait, has Assange been on restriction this whole time?

In a nine-page memo, published by Ecuadorean website Codigo Vidrio, the WikiLeaks founder is prohibited from “interfering in the internal affairs of other states” or from activities “that could prejudice Ecuador’s good relations with other states”.

Mr. Assange, who was granted asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy in London in 2012, was also told in the memo his pet cat would be confiscated and taken to an animal shelter if he did not look after it.

On Sunday, WikiLeaks said Mr. Assange would be reconnected to the internet, but it was not clear whether the move was contingent on him agreeing to Ecuador’s conditions.

The memo mostly governs security and communication issues, but offers hints of other Assange issues at the embassy, such as the need for him to clean his bathroom.

My understanding is that Assange answered back with “You’re not my Mom!”

Seriously THIS is the guy who was supposed to save the world from oppressive governments? 

Instead, he became a stooge for Vladimir Putin and is now locked in his room like a disobedient teenager who stayed out past curfew.

    Assange has no concept of personal hygiene so it’s not surprising that he’s not caring for a pet cat properly. One British tabloid said the entire embassy now smells like a dirty litter box. And as of December 1st he will be required to pay for his own food and laundry, for six and a half years he’s been sponging off of the Ecuadorian people.

    Meanwhile his buddy Glen Greenwald is in Brazil which is on the verge of electing a fascist. And Edward Snowden continues to rot in Moscow. They all got what they deserved.

    FBI needs to use a bone saw when they interrogate him.

      OT/ “Journalist Jamal Khashoggi was tortured and dismembered over seven minutes while he was still alive”

      “The consul himself was taken out of the room,” the source told the website. “There was no attempt to interrogate him. They had come to kill him.”

      The screaming stopped when Khashoggi was injected with an unknown substance.

      The head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, was among a 15-man squad who arrived in Turkey earlier that day by private jet.

      The source said Tubaigy started to cut up Khashoggi’s body on a table in the study while the journalist was still alive — and the killing took seven minutes.

      Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music as he dismembered Khashoggi’s body with a bone saw, and he advised other squad members to do the same.

      “When I do this job, I listen to music,” Tubaigy said on the recording. “You should do [that] too.”

      Nauert is reportedly in the running to replace outgoing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, who announced her resignation last week.

      “You’re on an official trip to find out the truth about a journalist being killed…not on a holiday,”

      ““I’m just glad she got her smiling ‘live, laugh, love’ shot while the family of the man who was chopped up by our great ally is being barred from leaving the country!,”

      “settling on a fall guy to distance their crown prince from the killing of a dissident.” “the Saudis will place blame for Khashoggi’s murder on a Saudi two-star general new to intelligence work. That line is in keeping with President Donald Trump’s Twitter-borne speculation that “rogue killers” may be responsible for whatever happened to Khashoggi inside Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul consulate on Oct. 2. Three other former U.S. officials did not have direct knowledge of the inchoate Saudi line but told The Daily Beast they expect Riyadh to blame a fall guy.”

      “If this is a rogue operation, the rogue is MBS,”

      ” At the time of his death, The Daily Beast has reported, Khashoggi was preparing to launch a pro-democracy nongovernmental organization.”

      A pro-government newspaper in Turkey also says it obtained recordings indicating the journalist was tortured in the office of Mohammad al-Otaibi, Saudi Arabia’s consul general in Istanbul.

      The president says he doesn’t want to “walk away” from Saudi Arabia.

      “Who are we hurting? It’s 500,000 jobs,” Trump told Fox News Business Wednesday morning, his second interview with that network in 12 hours. “It will be ultimately $110 billion, the biggest order in the history of our country from an outside military. And I said ‘We’re gonna turn that down? Why would we do that?’”

      “To be clear, there is no $110 billion arms deal with the Saudis.

      As The Washington Post Fact Checker column last week reported: “Trump’s $110 billion in arms sales to Saudi Arabia: still fake.”
      “Trump is literally covering up what appears to be the horrific torture and murder of a U.S. permanent resident, a respected journalist, to “protect” an arms deal that doesn’t even exist.”

    I think the Ecuadorians should just evict him; surely there is a limit to their patience.

    • Anonymous October 17, 2018 at 12:20 pm

      Yep, is he an Ecuadorian national, then just kick him to the curb, but find a new owner for the cat first or let it stay.

    “Natalie May Edwards, a senior adviser in the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), was arrested on Tuesday and charged with unauthorized disclosure of suspicious activity reports, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman. She was expected to make an initial appearance in Virginia federal court later in the day.”
    ” Prosecutors said that beginning in October 2017, Edwards disclosed suspicious activity reports connected to Manafort and his longtime associate Richard Gates, the Russian embassy and accused Russian spy Maria Butina.

    The disclosures were reported in a series of articles in BuzzFeed related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible coordination between U.S. President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign and Russia, according to prosecutors.”

    “ABC News is reporting that Robert Mueller is zeroing in on Roger Stone, who was in conversations with several purported hackers during the 2016 election.
    “Mueller’s interest in Stone appears to be focused on whether Stone or his associates communicated with Julian Assange or WikiLeaks about the release of damaging emails allegedly hacked from Hillary Clinton’s campaign by Russian intelligence officers masquerading as hacker persona ‘Guccifer 2.0,’” ABC reported.
    Stone told ABC he isn’t surprised to hear the news that Muller is inquiring about him given the closeness he has with Manafort and Trump and given his online admissions.

    “I am highly confident Mr. Manafort is aware of no wrong doing on my part during the 2016 campaign, or at any other time, and therefore there is no wrongdoing to know about,” Stone told ABC. “Narratives to the contrary by some in the media are false and defamatory.”,Raw story
