Fourth Annual “Cameo In Courage” Award For 2019 (April 8, 2019)

. . .

K          “The envelope please.  . . .  This year, the ‘Cameo In Courage’ Award is awarded to . . . Chelsea Elizabeth Manning and Julian Paul Assange.  Again.  Since the award last year, both of them have continued to display courage in the face of cowardice and criminality from those in power in the United States who are threatened by the Truth and who threaten the courageous with confinement in the American Prison Gulag.”

. . .

And a tip of the hat to the great nation and good people of Ecuador that have provided a home and a haven for Mr. Assange so far.  Rumblings abound that the United States is pressuring the government of Ecuador to release Assange to the wolves.  His country and his countrymen should demand his freedom and his return to Australia.  Trumpi should and could redeem himself in part by pardoning both of them.

[Please send nominations for the “Cameo In Courage” Award for 2020 and a supporting letter by January 24, 2020 to e-ssay@gci.net and send the entry fee to your favorite charity.]
