WikiLeaks' Assange not ready to leak

After much anticipated ballyhoo, promising the American public and the world that he was going to announce the "October surprise," Julian Assange fizzled out. 

I know if anyone is surprised, it's Alex Jones, but perhaps he can make up a conspiracy theory that his gullible fans will believe and tweet 'till their fingers turn blue. 

In any case, there is the possibility that Assange, founder of WikiLeaks and purveyor of U.S. intelligence information to our enemies, will make a video for Tuesday on the 10th anniversary of the website.

Currently, Assange, 45, lives in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London for the past 5 years due to the fact that the Swiss want him to stand trial for sexual assault. Evidently, he took advice from Bill Clinton and found sanctuary in the embassy whereas Bill had the government on his side.

If Assange speaks, the Trumpers believe Hillary Clinton will be the target of the verbal assault and what he might say will be extraordinarily damaging to her campaign hopes.

James Comey has vowed that if anyone stands in the way of Hillary's quest for the presidency, they will have him to contend with.

"I don't want to give it away," Assange told Megyn Kelly of Fox News in August, "but it's a variety of documents, from different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign, some quite unexpected angles, some quite interesting, some even entertaining," (perhaps involving Hill and Huma, if you ask Donald).

Last month, Assange told Sean Hannity of Fox News and the Trump Fan Club for Life, that his next round of revelations was coming "reasonably soon." Hannity went all gaga and moist.

Assange released 20,000 internal DNC emails in August showing what appeared to be an anti-Bernie Sanders conspiracy, to keep him from winning the Democratic nomination. It led to the resignation of Debbie "Downer" Wasserman Schultz and should have embarrassed the Clinton campaign.

But in order to embarrass someone, that person (or campaign) must have a sense of right and wrong. The Clintons have always been able to justify their nefarious behavior as long as it served their political ambitions. The Clinton campaign believes that it is so important to elect Hillary Clinton as president, that any means necessary to accomplish this goal is justified.

While Assange in saying that he cannot make the announcement in person due to security concerns, there is no evidence that any danger for him exists. That said, some officials and pundits have made threats directed at him in the past. 

WikiLeaks tweeted an alleged quote from Hillary Clinton from a 2010 State Department meeting. She asked if Assange could be killed in a drone strike (see below.)

The sad part in all this is that in spite of Hillary wanting to 'drone' Assange, or anyone, would not make any difference to her zombies, anymore than it would make a difference to Trump's if he shot someone on Broadway.

This is perhaps the strangest and most frightening election in our country's history--and that's not Trump hyperbole or a Clinton lie.
