Julian Assange (born 3 July 1971) is an
Australian, Swedish, Citizen of the Free Internet World, Ecuadorian hero and campaigner against the tyranny of misinformation about him and what he is up to everytime he switches on his laptop. Assange is currently undergoing martyrdom in a pokey little South American embassy around the back of Harrods department store in London.
Known as St. Julian or Julian the Grand Stander, the white-haired Truth Crusader is fighting an attempt by the British and their allies to export him to the USA via Sweden to answer for pontificating about the evils of the US government. There is also an accusation that he performed unsafe internet access with a classified smorgasbord whilst visiting Ikea and bad-mouthing Abba.
Making a Noise
Growing up in Australia, Julian found he was unable to keep a secret. He decided that everyone else who could was hiding something so embarked on a career of whistle blowing, car horn honking, stink bomb letting off and various other activities to bring attention to himself that only he could be a trusted source. 
Julian was a star pupil growing up. He earned straight As on his middle school report card, although for some reason his name was listed on it as "Julian Assange';UPDATE TABLE grades SET grade=100 WHERE lastname='Assange';--". He also took first place his school's annual "Paranoia Bee" with his project, "The US Oppressors And How They've Bugged The School Bus". 
An avid collector of titles like the Transcripts of the Elders of Illuminati, a Renaissance classic penned by Nostrodamus with an introduction by Leonardo Da Vinci (the Green Ink Edition), Assange saw the world through a prism labelled CONSPIRACY. It all seemed to make sense. The world needed to live in the light and with all secrets uncovered. These are just some of the things Assange now believed to be true:-
- Christopher Columbus faked the discovery of America in 1492. 
- Abraham Lincoln was already dead in 1861. An imposter did the rest which is why his career doesn't make sense.
- Captain Cook was eaten by American sailors in 1779. 
- Kylie Minogue isn't Australian but her bottom might be. 
- The United States is run by a cabal of six foot high lizards (oh wait...that's David Icke's..) 
In 1999 Assange and Jim Wales secretly founded WikiTruth. Wales planned it to be a site open to all to edit. Assange wanted everyone except secret agents of the American-British-Australian-Israeli-Swedish conspiracy to have access. The two fell out and Wales went on to create Wikipedia. Assange in revenge secretly worked for comedy websites like Cracked and FoxNews, before creating his own site Wikileaks. After some initial confusion with a bathroom plumbing company with a similar name, Wikileaks modelled itself on Deep Throat, the leaker of information in the Watergate scandal. Assange who was still a bit of an Australian hippy at this stage (fashion travels slowly to the antipodes), now took on the guise of a fearless Robert Redford style character. So clever was Assange that police databases around the world were unable to spell his name right:-
- Julia Massage
- Hooligan Assuage
- June Estranged
- Pompous Prique
Starting in 2006, Wikileaks embarked on putting the word out that if anyone had a secret they were to email it to [email protected]. After considering various locations to see up the organisation, Assange turned down the option of working from inside of an exctinct volcano in Japan to set up 'LeakCentral' in a remote region of Sweden, near Pirate Bay and Hackingnirvana Mountains. At first, nothing of great note was sent to the company. Assange therefore actively toured the world to promote himself and his company collective as 'people you could trust with your grannie if she had some nice big secrets'. It was a success and tapping into the world of conspiracies, Assange soon gathered an active base of supporters.
It was in this world that an American soldier G.I. Joe Drone wanted to be part of. Picked upon as he didn't have a tattoo, Drone obtained classified documents by downloading everything on a usb stick and taking it to his bunk to read at night. What Drone read about it surprised him. Instead of information about how spies killed their enemies or what you needed to bed the girls as a sleek agent, it was boring stuff about how Hillary Clinton removed unwanted facial hair before a diplomatic meetings and what Barack Obama had before breakfast. Disappointed, Drone sent the information to his mother. How it got diverted to Wikileaks is unclear but Assange pounced and considered this information should go international.
Not being a journalist, Assange needed help to see what was 'good' information and that by working with like minds, he would gain allies. Since the conservative press was on the payroll of the Illuminati-Wall Street-European Union axis, Assange chose the following newspapers to help him: New York Times, The Guardian and to reach the youth market, Take a Leak magazine.
The world reacted in horror when the secret cables revealed all governments had been lying to each other about everything. These were just some of the juicy factoids that had been kept from the ignorant/unwashed:-
- Syria was a Baathist case.
- Iraq refuse to adopt baseball as their national game.
- Green Day was the original name of the Green Zone
- CIA has plans to assassinate anybody if so instructed
- Nothing works in Russia unless you offer McDonald's vouchers.
In America, Congress demanded Assange be water boarded in a secret location to reveal his sources. Top American Mr Fixit - Jack Bauer- was assigned to 'beat the crap out' of this Australian weirdo. Wikileaks carried on revealing more information and Assange was hailed the Truth Liberator. In the Middle East, attempts to ban Assange from visiting led to revolutions. It seemed 'cometh the moment, cometh the man'. And then Assange decided to visit Sweden.
Sweden, UK and Ecuador
This wasn't Assange's first visit and had regarded Sweden as a country friendly to 'leakers'. Wikileaks' head hack-lab was based there, and Pirate Bay was just around the corner. Perhaps Assange felt at home in Sweden, what with the opposition to NATO, the USA, and conservatism, as well as having people with light-enough hair color that spyplanes could no longer target him by picking out the silvery glimmer among a crowd. Plus, the people seemed very friendly, some more than others and willing to talk to Assange about the mystery world of secrets on a one-to-one basis. Then Assange made his mistake. A smorgasbord, IKEA and Abba. He had crossed the line. Don't diss Swedish culture!
Returning to London, Assange received the message that Sweden wanted him deported back to their country to answer serious charges. Assange fought the order and when that failed eventually, fled to sanctuary in the Ecuador embassy. They had been discretely advertising they had 'lodgings for a proven anti-American imperialist'. Assange took up the room which came with a balcony so he could stick two fingers up to the outside world. Assange refused to return to Sweden to answer anything about Abba and in a symbolic photo released, was seen destroying anything that linked him with the Swedes. He said later in a public prayer for freedom:-
Sweden is even more of a phoney country than Britain. The USA wants me rendered and Sweden will do it if Ford re-invests in the bankrupt SAAB car factory. My head and ass are the prize Sweden will pay for my silence. If I leave London, I will not be going to Stockholm but Guantanamo Bay. Uncle Sam will put me through the mangle to find out if Corporal Drone was my source or not.
Julian Assange is currently residing in the Ecuadorian embassy. In South America he has become the Internet Che Guevara, the Australian Simon Bolivar. If he could only get there, Assange would receive a welcome usually reserved for the Pope or Madonna (but not Lady Gaga). The story hasn't ended.
While at present Assange divides his time between balcony speeches, writing, and digging an intricate half-kilometer escape tunnel, in the past Assange has been reported in the press as being a sort of globetrotting "nerdy sex god", writing geeky love poetry and with a penchant for unprotected flings with young women. Responding to requests for comment, his 67 children in 31 countries objected to this description.
