WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested by British police inside the Ecuadorean embassy. Reports indicate law enforcement was invited into the embassy after Assange’s asylum status was revoked by the Ecuadorean government.
The free press organization infamous for leaking sensitive documents about governments around the world claim the revocation of his asylum status breaks international law.

Assange has been holed up in the embassy since 2012 and despite a handful of complaints about strange habits and lack of personal hygiene, the relationship has been strong. That changed recently when Ecuador accused him of leaking information about President Lenin Moreno’s personal life. Both WikiLeaks and Assange deny involvement with the relevant leak.

Whether you believe Assange is a hero or a threat, one should consider this a step towards finding the truth. After all, he’s wanted by both the Swedish and American governments for various crimes. The Swedish crime in particular is interesting because it’s for sexual assault and has nothing to do with his activities at WikiLeaks.
The Trump administration has actively pursued Assange, though many may not have heard about it because doing so breaks with the leftist narrative that his campaign worked with the Russians and WikiLeak proxies during the 2016 election.
Now, the question is what will WikiLeaks do in response. Will they go after the Brits? The Ecuadorians? The Trump administration? Do they have something up their sleeve already? So far, there haven’t been any threats leveled via Twitter. Instead, it seems like they’re using this as a fundraising opportunity.

This man is a son, a father, a brother. He has won dozens of journalism awards. He's been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize every year since 2010. Powerful actors, including CIA, are engaged in a sophisticated effort to dehumanise, delegitimize and imprison him. #ProtectJulian pic.twitter.com/dVBf1EcMa5

“Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love. In a modern economy it is impossible to seal oneself off from injustice.” – Julian Assange
If WikiLeaks has been holding anything back as a contingency, now is the time when that contingency will be used. Then again, they’ve never been shy about sharing, so it’s possible there’s nothing left for them to leak at the moment.
Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
