Brits just elected as Prime Minister the mastermind of Assange’s persecution.

The newly elected Prime Minister of UK, Keir Starmer, was the mastermind behind the British half (which turned out to be the bigger half) of the U.S./UK Deep State’s joint operation against Julian Assange.

Stefania Maurizi, one of the world’s greatest (and totally independent) investigative journalists, published in 2022 her SECRET POWER: WikiLeaks and Its Enemies, about the U.S.-and-allied Deep State’s illegal decades-long Government-imposed persecution of the brilliant courageous champion of democracy against dictatorship, Julian Assange. Her book documented that Keir Starmer, the head of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) during 2008-2013, masterminded the indictment and imprisonment-without-trial of Assange on false evidence, so as to get him extradited to America for final destruction. (See her Chapter “11. My Trench Warfare to Unearth the Truth” and its 7-page-long Section “How Keir Starmer’s Crown Prosecution Service Helped Create the Quagmire” for the details.)

Maurizi filed Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request after FOIA request and got only a tiny proportion of the evidences that she had asked for, but still got enough from the UK’s dictatorship so that she could document to a certainty that this totally illegal (under U.S., UK, and Swedish, laws) joint operation by the Governments of U.S., UK, and Sweden, in order to remove Assange permanently from being able to continue his entirely legal work, was masterminded especially on its UK side, which is to say, by Starmer himself.

Subsequent to Maurizi’s book, this was yet more strongly proven when Declassified UK’s Matt Kennard headlined on 29 June 2023, “CPS HAS DESTROYED ALL RECORDS OF KEIR STARMER’S FOUR TRIPS TO WASHINGTON: US records show Starmer met with Attorney General Eric Holder and a host of American and British national security officials in Washington in 2011, when he was in charge of Julian Assange’s proposed extradition to Sweden.” So: this was a highly coordinated U.S./UK, that is to say Rhodesist Deep State, operation; and, consequently, its ultimate objective is to prevent whistleblowers and thereby facilitate further expansion of the U.S.-and-‘allied’ (or all-encompassing global colonial) empire. The CIA-edited and written Wikipedia (which blacklists (blocks from linking to) sites that aren’t CIA-approved) says nothing about Starmer — doesn’t even mention his name — in its supposedly comprehensive 30,000-word-long article “Julian Assange”. Likewise, Wikipedia’s 5,000-word article on “Keir Starmer” doesn’t mention even once the name “Assange.” Both of those articles are exactly what one would expect if the UK colony of the U.S. empire had been setting Starmer up to lead his Tory clone ‘Labour’ Party into 10 Downing Street after 14 years straight of by-now notoriously bad Tory rule. On 6 June 2024, YouGov headlined “In most ways, most Britons think the UK is worse now than it was in 2010: Two thirds disapprove of the government’s record over the last 14 years”. 73% of them think that things are worse than when that 14-year Tory stretch started; only 8% think that things are better than when it started. So, for every Brit who thinks things improved, more than 9 think that things deteriorated. And, now, what the Deep State has offered to Brits is the same political product — neoliberalism domestically and neoconservatism internationally — but now again under the ‘opposite’ Party’s brand. The public won’t be satisfied, but the billionaires who control their media and Government will be. And they’ll call that “democracy,” so that the public won’t blame the aristocracy (the super-rich who control the politicians) but instead the “democracy” (that doesn’t exist there).

However, in order to continue this con-game in silence, now that the brand has switched to “Labour,” they had to destroy the evidence — the part of it that they had refused to release to Maurizi. By great good fortune, that would still be enough for a hangman’s noose around Starmer’s neck if UK had an actually democratic Government, but, tragically, they do not. It’s instead the same old aristocracy — profoundly corrupt, like any aristocracy is.


Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s latest book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.
