Paul Jacko

Little Julian, just as trustworthy as our Julia, is boring news, except when he does something particularly weird to attract the media attention. For example, not long ago the self-styled fighter for freedom of speech hid in the Equadorian embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden. Naturaly, the Left media approve and admire his heroism. The fact that the socialist rulers of Equador are supressing free speech and jail opponents, that Sweden is a democratic country, that America, if she were so minded, could just as well try to extradite him from Great Britain (similar legal system and similar language would help), that he is investigated for sex crimes punishable in most Western countries and that the normally vociferous feminists are strangely silent [Fog of Chaos – Pink brigade] is not here nor there. Assange is or rather was sticking it to the Main Enemy a.k.a the Great Satan and thus deserves the Left’s adulation and the „get out of jail“ card.

Now comes the Spanish ex-judge Baltasar Garzon to his rescue, and if not to the rescue at least to the footlights of the Great Socialist Theatre of Absurd. They have a lot in common. Both are unprincipled egomaniacs and publicity cravers, totally dismissive of the damage their actions do to the other human beings and sometimes even to the cause they ostensibly espouse. They brandish two Left wings and the moral camouflage plumage; shiny enough to attract the bird brains of the opposite sex in red light and yet sufficiently dull for journalists. They both deride Britain’s and Sweden’s legal systems (and in Garzon’s case Spain’s) and prefer such Latin American bastions of democracy as Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador.

Señor Garzon is a jurist of the moral fibre comparable to that of our Brombergs and Finkelsteins and managed to attract attention of the Fog of Chaos already three times: Another Left hero & Justice on trial & Justice discontinued. He does not seem to be much of an expert on sexual crimes or Swedish criminal justice system but human rights of the leftists are supposed to be his forte:

There is clear political intentionality behind this affair, which explains his current situation,” added Garzón. “Obviously this is not just about his future but his physical and psychological stability and it is only right that Assange should be protected by the same rights as those of any other citizen.

Assange has not rebelled against any jurisdiction, given that he respects the action of the law, but he – and we – are seriously worried about what will happen to him because his situation is becoming political as a result of the great work done by his organisation when it comes to denouncing corruption. That cannot be the reason for a judicial process that appears, and which I believe we can show, is arbitrary and totally baseless,” he stated, according to the Cadena SER radio station.

“It does not seem right that a single person should be under such pressure from governments,” referring to both Sweden and Britain. “I believe that Assange … is in a situation that is an attack on his human rights.

Well, maybe it is not his forte or maybe it is just an incompetent translation.

I would not dare to attempt to diagnose anyone on the basis of second-hand information, but I have to admit that after reading the Left pseudo-intellectual Robert Manne’s article in the Left The Monthly I almost came to the conclusion that Julian Assange is a psychopath, perhaps with some autism thrown in. Recall his actions, consider the definition and judge yourselves:

Psychopathy – from the Ancient Greek ψυχή “psyche”, -soul, mind and πάθος, “pathos” -suffering, disease, condition) is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, nonplanfulness, impulsivity, and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyle and criminality.

Amongst his many betrayals so far the last one is his jumping of bail, (which does not show much respect for the actions of the law) that will cost his nine naïve surety providers £340,000. Of course, being Left means you are never sorry and some of them, rather than admit the fiscal rape, claim they enjoyed it.

Assange will betray Garzon just as everybody and everything else because that’s what psychopaths do. But do not feel sorry for him, unless you also wish to feel sorry for Ernst Röhm, so nastily betrayed by his national socialist comrade Adolf Hitler. Birds of feather…

    This seems to add to your theory:
    Psychopaths have a remarkably poor sense of smell, according to a new study.

    Researchers in Australia tested a theory that psychopathy – a severe personality disorder characterised by lack of empathy, antisocial behaviour and callousness – may be linked to impaired smell ability.

    Both phenomena have been independently traced to dysfunction in part of the brain called the orbito-frontal complex (OFC).

    Mehmet Mahmut and Richard Stevenson of the Department of Psychology at Sydney’s Macquarie University trialled the olfactory skills of 79 individuals, aged 19 to 21, who had been diagnosed as non-criminal psychopaths and lived in the community.

    Using “Sniffin’ Sticks” – 16 pens that contain different scents, such as orange, coffee and leather – they found the participants had problems in correctly identifying the smell, and then discriminating it against a different odour.

    Those who scored highest on a standard scorecard of psychopathic traits did worst on both counts, even though they knew that they were smelling something.

    The finding could be useful for identifying psychopaths, who are famously manipulative in the face of questioning, says the paper, published in the journal, Chemosensory Perception.

    “Olfactory measures represent a potentially interesting marker for psychopathic traits, because performance expectancies are unclear in odour tests and may therefore be less susceptible to attempts to fake ‘good’ or ‘bad’ responses.”

    The OFC is a front part of the brain responsible for controlling impulses, planning and behaving in line with social norms.

    Odour molecules bind to specific nerve cells in the base of the nose, which then send signals via the lateral olfactory tract to the primary olfactory cortex.

    From there, the signals go to OFC via a brain organ called the mediodorsal nucleus, located in the thalamus.

    The study makes clear that a poor sense of smell does not by itself mean that someone is a psychopath. Olfactory dysfunction can also occur in schizophrenia, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, it notes.

    Let’s hope he stays there forever, but knowing those birds, they will try to stage some stunt, maybe even escape. They want limelight.

    There are hypocrites on the Right too, but the Left ones take the crown.

    Well, it has happened, and I think it serves them right. I doubt that Australian judges would be game to apply the law. Via Tim Blair: Nine people who provided sureties to enable WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to get bail were today ordered to forfeit £93,500 [$146,700].

    The WikiLoser Nine are:

    • Professor Tricia Davies ($15,700)
    • Literary agent Caroline Michel ($23,500)
    • Assange’s assistant Joseph Farrell ($5,500)
    • Assange’s ex-girlfriend Sarah Harrison ($5,500)
    • Journalist Philip Knightley ($18,800)
    • Caterer Sarah Saunders ($18,800)
    • Biologist Sir John Sulston ($23,500)
    • Actress Tracy Worcester ($11,770)
    • Club owner Vaughan Smith ($23,500)

    Smith – at whose home Assange stayed while on bail – previously claimed: “I’ve got to know Julian well enough to be 100 per cent sure that he’s not going to abscond.” $23,500 says otherwise. Still, at least a kindly judge gave Smith and his fellow Julian dupes a discount, cutting their bill from $220,000. Among those who weren’t so lucky:

    Other Assange supporters, like Michael Moore and British socialite Jemima Khan, were stiffed the $320,000 worth of bail money they tried to get back.
