World: Wiki-update: Britain against Julian Assange’s bail, U.S. builds its case

  • The decision was made by the British prosecutor. I got it confirmed by the CPS this morning that the decision to appeal the granting of bail was entirely a matter for the CPS. The Swedish prosecutors are not entitled to make decisions within Britain. It is entirely up to the British authorities to handle it.
  • Karin Rosander, spokesperson for the Swedish prosecutor’s office  • Revealing that Britain, not Sweden, appealed against Julian Assange’s bail. Which is kind of a big thing. “The Swedish authorities are not involved in these proceedings,” Rosander continued. “We have not got a view at all on bail.” Assange will find out tomorrow whether or not he’ll be allowed to be a (somewhat) free man for a few weeks. Oh yeah … there’s this. That’s right, the U.S. is now trying to build a case against Assange. Have fun with that. source

Politics: Glenn Beck: Surprisingly good at explaining Julian Assange sex case

  • Glenn Beck has made a lot of wacko clips in his day, but this may be one of his most entertaining ever. In it, our boy explains in great detail what Julian Assange did to encourage his arrest on sex charges in Sweden. Beck’s main point in this clip? While he doesn’t like what Assange represents, something smells kinda funny to him. source
