21st Century Wire's Podcast

In Episode #281 of the SUNDAY WIRE radio show, we talked with veteran journalist Joe Lauria, now Editor & Chief of Consortium News, about the critical aspects of the 17 indictments handed to Julian Assange by the US Department of Justice, and the somewhat surprising re-awakening of the American left-wing over this historical issue. It seems the Trump Administration has crossed over a red line that previous Presidents couldn't or wouldn't cross. The implications are deep and far reaching.

The Sunday Wire with Patrick Henningsen broadcasts LIVE on Alternate Current Radio SUNDAY 5pm-8pm UK Time, 12pm-3pm EST (US), 9am-12pm PST (US) at http://alternatecurrentradio.com and http://thesundaywire.com


This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on ACR with host Patrick Henningsen joined in-studio by co-host Mike Robinson from the UK Column covering all the top stories in the US, Europe and internationally. In the first hour we’ll discuss the media and public fallout from the new Julian Assange indictments, and also encouraging media and political traction for the OPCW Leak covered last week on the SUNDAY WIRE, and Sky News recent foray in the terrorist haven of Idlib in Syria and working alongside Al Qaeda’s top media propaganda operative. Later in the first hour, we’ll talk with Joe Lauria, Editor & Chief of Consortium News about the key aspects of the Assange case, and the potential awakening of the American left-wing over this issue. In the second hour, we’ll go live to Syria to speak with 21WIRE Middle East correspondent Vanessa Beeley for an update Syrian & Russian anti-terror operations in Idlib. In the final segment of overdrive, we’ll check in with the SUNDAY WIRE roving correspondent for Culture & Sport, Basil Valentine, to discuss the political upheaval which hit Britain this week – as Prime Minister Theresa May announces her resignation, triggering a madcap race by some of the countries worst individuals to seize power of a terminally ill Tory Party. All this and much more. Enjoy the show…

21WIRE editor Patrick Henningsen spoke to RT International on Thursday, May 23, 2019 when this story broke, and focused on the spurious nature of the DOJ indictment which appears to follow a familiar pattern of politicized indictments which are not founded on fact, but rather to wrestle control the information space and control the geopolitical narrative.

The DOJ charge sheet is peppered with inflated rhetoric and elaborate legalese which is clearly designed to side-step the US Constitution by re-framing the story from journalism and publishing to espionage, thus removing any journalist/publisher protections from Assange and WikiLeaks.

Henningsen also notes that there is nothing in this new indictment that hasn’t already been publicly known for the last six years – all of which was already heard during the trial of Chelsea Manning (formerly known as Bradley Manning).

In early May, a leaked report from the OPCW emerged entitled, “Engineering Assessment of Two Cylinders Observed at Douma Incident,” sent to The Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (WGSMP). This week we speak to Dr. Piers Robinson from the WGSMP about this latest game changer which appears to further prove that the alleged 'chemical attack' in Douma, Syria was in fact staged in order to trigger a US-UK-FR bombing campaign on Syria. See their assessment here: http://syriapropagandamedia.org/working-papers/assessment-by-the-engineering-sub-team-of-the-opcw-fact-finding-mission-investigating-the-alleged-chemical-attack-in-douma-in-april-2018

Its executive editor is Patrick Henningsen, so, we invited him in to the studio this week to tell us more about how independent news gatherers are challenging mainstream news narratives."

Patrick Henningsen of 21st Century Wire speaking to Press TV outside Westminster Magistrates Court in London at Julian Assange's extradition hearing:

'This issue is the red line. The governments of the US, UK and Ecuador have colluded to cross that red line. Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning are on trial on behalf of us.'

On the eve of the court hearing regarding the U.S. request for his extradition, Julian Assange supporters gathered at Bloomsbury Baptist Church in central London for a powerhouse lineup of speakers hosted by George Galloway.

This latest stop on the ‘Imperialism on Trial’ event tour included the following speakers:

  • Craig Murray
  • Annie Machon
  • Emmy Butlin
  • Alexander Mercouris
  • Peter Ford
  • Neil Clark
  • Sheila Coombs
  • Patrick Henningsen

21WIRE's Patrick Henningsen presents his case:

"If you're a journalist or your publisher. If you're a news consumer. This is the defining issue of this generation. This affects everybody. This doesn't just affect the press, the papers, the titles that you love, the ones that I used to look forward to reading every weekend when I had my stack. Now, it's every journalist, every publication, every blogger, everybody who uses social media.

I make this point to people. There's people doing forensic document analysis on Twitter. They're just ordinary enthusiasts, citizens, they're publishing. They're journalists. The amount of journalists on the planet has mushroomed. [Applause]

So, this issue affects everybody. This is fundamental. Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning are holding the line on one of the most important pillars of a post-enlightenment democratic society. Understand that's what's happening. When governments take power or take rights away from citizens, they don't give them back very easily."
