A Tribute to Julian Assange


Chad: Today's episode is my tribute to Julian Assange and the First Amendment, including a special guest to update us on the ongoing Assange saga. You are listening to the Last Gay Conservative. I'm your host, Chad Law.

Intro: Hello everybody, and let's free Julian. Welcome to another episode of the Last Gay Conservative. It's me, your host, Chad Law, America's binary brother, the holiest homo of all time, and the ultimate beacon of truth. All we're doing here is sending common sense conservative politics through the airwaves on our red, white, and blue rainbow. Well, folks, we have a very special episode today. I have a dear friend and colleague that I've worked with for many years. She works in sort of the gray or dark area in helping push our conservative movement. So we're only using her first name, but she is actively involved in the free Julian Assange campaign. And I have to be honest, I am not up to date on it. So I wanted to bring her on and I wanted to do it around the same time as the Bell Marsh Tribune because there are expert after expert after expert after expert talking about why Julian Assange is not a criminal.

This is a big First Amendment issue folks. This is a humanitarian issue. This is an international relations issue. This man has turned everything up on his head for the betterment of us, of humanity. And so I'm very, very supportive of him. So we'll have a full interview for you. I just wanna apologize now, the audio quality is not what you're used to. Unfortunately, doing these interviews over the phone or Zoom really degrade the quality of the audio. So bear with it. The information is great and we'll see you when we get back.

People ask me all the time how I can afford to dress the way that I dress. And the funny thing is that although I have nice pieces, oftentimes when I look put together, I'm not wearing anything extravagant or expensive from day-to-day use. I have started to wear these sweaters because it's been a little chilly by state cashmere. It's an Amazon brand called State Cashmere. The pricing is absolutely incredible. I don't know how they do it. It's entry level, affordable pricing for high quality cashmere. It is soft, it fits perfect. It's true to color, true to size. Obviously, you get the protection of that Amazon return policy if there are any problems, which there won't be. I've been wearing a few of the different sweaters from a cardigan to a Henley neck, and now today I just have on a regular sweater and I am in love.

Traditionally, cashmere is one of those things that's only available in the high end retail stores and very, very expensive. State cashmere has changed the game. Now everyone can look expensive, find them, just go on Amazon and search state cashmere, go to the state cashmere store, pick out anything that you want. It'll arrive next day, prime, and you will absolutely love the way you look. Again, folks that state cashmere, state, like the state of California cashmere on, check it out and let me know what you think.

Chad: Alright folks. I have a very, very special guest for you. One of my dear friends, her name's Donna. I never have guests or do interviews on the show, as you know. So this is a special occasion and my tribute to Julian Assange. Donna is my confidant and go to Information source on all things Assange. She works very, very closely with a group of people that are actively working for his freedom and to find justice for all the injustices that he's suffered, and he knows all about it. So, very excited to have Donna on the show. Donna, how are you?

Donna: I'm good. Thank you for having me. And most importantly, thanks for taking the time to really talk about Julian and his situation and what's going on because it's so important and a lot of the media won't cover it. So it's really good to enlighten people as to the truth of the situation.

Chad: Well, I have to be honest with you, I remember when the Assange sort of roaring happened. I think Obama was still in office at that point, but I haven't followed piece by piece. I mean, luckily I have access to you, so if I have a question, I pick up the phone and call. But I know that there's been sort of a series of events that has led to where we are now, which is what I think is essentially the precipice of he's got to be released. That's the only option. But I saw that there is an event in Washington DC right now called the Belmar Tribunal. Do you know anything about that?

Donna: Yeah, so the Belmar Tribunal took place yesterday in Washington DC in honor of Julian Assange, and it features a lot of notable speakers, expert testimony from journalists, whistleblowers, lawyers, publishers, and it's all about assaults, press freedom, then Julian's honor, because it's so important that he be released because he really is just so much of a figurehead for all of this. But it's about the First Amendment being threatened in this country.

Chad: Absolutely. And so Belmarsh Tribunal. Belmarsh is in reference to where he is currently incarcerated, correct?

Donna: Yes. So he's currently incarcerated in Belmarsh Prison. And for people who don't know, Belmarsh is the UK's equivalent of Guantanamo Bay or Gitmo in the United States. It's a heavy duty supermax facility where they send the most dangerous criminals.

Chad: That's crazy. And that's where they have him, the journalist.

Donna: Yeah, that's where they have him.
