Here’s What Julian Assange Thinks About Voting for Hillary Clinton

(ANTIMEDIAJulian Assange is one of the most wanted men in the world. After a recent tweet, however, he might also be at the top target of Hillary Clinton’s alleged “hit list.”

On Wednesday, the WikiLeaks founder took to Twitter to urge Americans not to waste their vote on President Barack Obama’s former Secretary of State — unless they want the country to be involved in yet another ongoing military entanglement.

In a post shared by the WIkiLeaks account, Assange began with the statement:

“A vote today for Hillary Clinton is a vote for endless, stupid war.”

He went on to claim Clinton bears responsibility for the Iraq War, but for other failed military campaigns undertaken by the United States.

“Hillary didn’t just vote for Iraq,” he said. “She made her own Iraq. Libya is Hillary’s Iraq and if she becomes president she will make more.”

During his many years of experience scrutinizing official U.S. communications, Assange has had access to “thousands” of her cables. To the Australian truth-seeker, “Hillary lacks judgement and will push the United States into endless wars which spread terrorism.” Despite her current popularity among some of the most established figures of the Democratic party, Assange argues that her “personality combined with her poor policy decisions have directly contributed to the rise of ISIS.”

Clinton has long-reviled WikiLeaks, and last year, her email records revealed that while she served as Secretary of State, her aides coordinated with CBS’s 60 Minutes to craft a narrative against Assange while he was interviewed on the show. Assange had previously leaked cables about her State Department.

Regardless of their direct hostility towards each other, Assange is not the only one who has accused Clinton of playing a major part in the rise of the Islamic State.

During a campaign stop in Biloxi, Mississippi, Republican front-runner and business mogul Donald Trump claimed Clinton helped President Barack Obama to create ISIS.

I’m pretty good at signals, and I see a lot of things happening,” he told the audience. “They’ve created ISIS. Hillary Clinton created ISIS with Obama—created with Obama,” he repeated.

When questioned about the deadly attack against the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), the then-Secretary of State failed to answer whether the United States was using the Benghazi embassy to smuggle guns to Syrian rebels. While many dismissed Paul’s theory as a “conspiracy theory,” the senator was vindicated when Judicial Watch obtained documents that confirmed U.S. agencies were aware of the gun smuggling operation.

Pentagon generals objected to destroying the Libyan state,” explained Assange in his long-form tweet.“They felt Hillary did not have a safe post-war plan.

But despite the generals’ warnings, “Hillary Clinton went over their heads.”

To Assange, Clinton’s decisions helped create a safe haven for the Islamic State. With the looting of the Libyan national armory and the transference of weapons to jihadists in Syria, Assange argues that “Hillary’s war has increased terrorism, killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians and has set back women’s rights in the Middle East by hundreds of years.”

Assange closes his pledge by saying Clinton shouldn’t even “be let near a gun shop, let alone an army. And she certainly should not become president of the United States.”

  2. The Empire of Mendacity loves Hillary, as Hillary loves war, death, and destruction.

  3. Assange needs to understand how the US government works.

    Hillary didn't *make* Libya anything. The President did. Hillary served at the pleasure of the President, implementing his policies. That frequently means doing things somewhat differently than you, yourself, would prefer. Every foriegn diplomat in the State Department has to deal with the same thing.

    Anyoine who seriously thinks Obama let Hillary Clinton craft his foreign policy for him doesn't know / care much about how government works, or is simply interested in scoring political points.

  4. Mark you my friend need to get up to speed. For crying out loud the Hilarry emails were hacked by a Romanian hacker….named Guccifer. He discovered/exposed the classified emails by gaining access to the aol account of Sid Blumenthal (Obama hater, but deep cover agent closely tied to the Clintons)…Hillary was running an "offline" state dept. where critical decisions to illegally overthrow Libya involved Blumenthal and Hillary's aide who has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The aide tranferred JWICS data (above top secret) onto the private server. Guccifer published the Libya emails to the global press, but only RT, Cryptome, Gawker and Smoking Gun published the emails. Dude this is one of the most significant breaches in US history. Obama is implicated via at least 18 of the emails were between Obama and Hillary – but those emails will not be disclosed. I ask you to google "Guccifer waives extradition". The most prolific hacker in recent memory waives extradition and this guy remains completely blacked in US press.

  6. For most of us who follow politics and global affairs, to include whistleblowing and new discoveries shedding light on intentional lies maintaining the current entropy of our potential/societal function, it comes to no surprise that people like Rand Paul, Trump, and Bernie Sanders, have been vindicated in their release of truthfull comments/observation. The real scary fact is that "Democrats" delegates/super delegates would counter our democratic process excepting the corruption/lies of Clinton by endorsement over the obvious wants of our people. Peace, sustainability, and exponential advancement in all fields is achievable in the coming decades if only more people would open their biased mind in alignment with their heart and truth. Ignoring facts and picking the best of bad/deceitful options, will only continue to feed the entropic forces separating us from our people and devine potential we are capable of when our masses are encouraged to wake up and offer thier spark of life to our current world full of stigma and deceit. Love you all, have a good wknd 🙂
