Scott Walker: 'If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world' Read more:

Wow! This guy is dangerous............

Speaking to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. Thursday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker once again pointed to his experience battling Wisconsin's public sector unions in 2011 as an indication of how tough he would be when dealing with terrorists.

"If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world," Walker said in a speech to what has been described as a "rowdy" crowd of conservative activists and politicians.

Julian Assange appeals to Sweden's supreme court over arrest warrant

Source: The Guardian

Julian Assange is taking his appeal to Sweden’s highest court in a final attempt to persuade a Swedish judge that the arrest warrant against him should be lifted.

His lawyers will ask Sweden’s supreme court on Wednesday to agree that the “severe limitations” on Assange’s freedoms since he claimed asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden are unreasonable and disproportionate to the case.

In August 2010, the WikiLeaks founder and campaigning journalist was accused by two women of rape and sexual molestation, but he has not been charged because the prosecutor insists she is unable to interview him about the allegations.

Prosecutor Marianne Ny has declined invitations by Assange to do so in London, where he has taken refuge in the embassy to avoid a perceived threat of extradition to the US for publishing military secrets. Assange denies all the charges.
