UK Threaten Assange As Sweden Withdraw Accusations

By Andrew Kreig, J.D., M.S.L., attorney and journalist. Member of the Editorial Board, and Associate Editor of The Indicter Magazine. British authorities threatened WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with arrest on a bond-jumping charge last week after their Swedish counterparts gave up trying to investigate Assange on what appears to have been a dubious series of sex claims that have been pending against him for nearly seven years since his 2010 speaking trip to Stockholm.

Macron and Le Pen: Two Faces of the Same Con

By Gilbert Mercier   It is sad that a nation defined by a great revolution has come to this: the docile copycat of a pseudo-ideological struggle at play elsewhere between globalism and nationalism. It is sad that in the country of Danton, Mirabeau, Montesquieu and de Gaulle millions have become resigned to their fate and submissive like farm animals. It is sad when lions behave like sheep, but it doesn’t have to be that way in France.
