... is it due to a core ambivalence that touches deep sensitivities about the myths we live by – held by men as well as women? Is it simply unpalatable that numerous of the elites who rule us – we America, the last best hope of humankind – and whom we admire are in fact among the scum of the earth?
Jeremy Corbyn, this is how you handle right-wing Zionists and those who wrongfully call others anti-Semitic
You stand up to them. You support the right of people to tell it as they see it about Palestine and Israel.
Rep Ayanna Pressley on Israel's Ban: “Bigoted, Short-Sighted and Cruel”:
These are the words [“Bigoted, Short-Sighted and Cruel”] tweeted by Rep. Ayanna Pressley in response to the Israeli decision to ban the entry of Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib. The story has a striking resemblance to South Africa and Rhodesia blocking the entry of African American Democratic Representative Charles C. Diggs Junior in January 1972.
This one is especially good:
26. “Mueller concluded that hackers from Russia’s military intelligence agency, known as the GRU, attacked Democratic targets in spring 2016 and removed hundreds of gigabytes of information. They created online personas — Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks — to transfer some of the files to WikiLeaks and publicly claim responsibility for the hacks, falsely disavowing any Russian ties.”
WikiLeaks states that the sources for the various materials from the Democratic Party are diverse, and were circulated by different actors. The Democratic Party itself recognizes that its servers were attacked for two years before the election. Wikileaks has said that its source is not the Russian state, nor any state agent.
The forensic report that attributes the alleged extraction of information to “Russian state hackers” was written by a private company hired by the Democratic Party itself. The Department of Justice did not make its own independent expert analysis.
On the other hand, WikiLeaks was not the initial medium that published materials from the Democratic Party. Numerous organizations and media in the US published material, allegedly, coming from Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks. This includes the Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Politico, Buzzfeed, The Intercept, and The Hill.
The materials published by WikiLeaks were reprinted and/or reported in many media outlets, including the BBC, NBC, ABC, The Guardian, Fox News, and USA Today. However, only WikiLeaks is being persecuted for publishing such information, which is truthful and in the public interest.
We all know the attack against Trump wasn't couched as allegations but known facts. We all know Hillary Clinton and her campaign said the Russian government hacked and that there was collusion. We also know Barack Obama was still in office while supporting Hillary Clinton for President and that under Obama's watch, the "intelligence community's" fiction-based analysis was used to attack Trump from within that very "intelligence community" so Trump would not win or if he were to win, be severely weakened and open to impeachment based upon totally unsubstantiated allegations. We know none of the allegations stood up under scrutiny.
All of that constitutes an attempt coup against the government of the US.
We also know the "intelligence community" under Obama is now claiming it didn't need evidence but only did analysis. However, criminal warrants require real probable cause, not mere no-evidence, no-facts analysis (mere feelings or desires).
Here's the deal, if the "intelligence community's" analysis is trusted and sufficient enough that the entire US government is still pointing the finger at the Russian government for hacking this, that, and the other (without any actual evidence of same), then why shouldn't the "intelligence community's" so-called analysis via the Steele dossier (bought and paid for by the Democrats from, ironically, Russians) be grounds enough for the "intelligence" court (FISA) to issue a criminal warrant? After all, the US is punishing the Russian government and people with harsh sanctions based upon the same level of "analysis." Sanctioning a nation without probable cause is actually illegal under international law to which the US has obligated itself.
For the Republicans to leave the false concept in place that the Russian government is a "malign actor" towards the US as shown by the alleged hacking and then to claim there weren't sufficient grounds to lean on the Steele dossier to conduct a criminal investigation with warrant in hand is simply stupid.
How can the law and government have it both ways?
Either the Republicans shoot down the idea we know the Russian government hacked the US or the Democrats will be left with the logical argument I just spelled out. A good lawyer could make mincemeat out of a side that doesn't believe the "intelligence community" only when it's convenient and does believe it or trust it when there's something perverse to be gained.
There was no collusion, and the Russian government did not do all the hacking the "intelligence community" has claimed the Russian government has done. That "intelligence community" has shown zero proof the Russian government hacked anything let alone all things claimed by that "intelligence community."
If the Republicans would only rub some working brain cells together, they might come to realize just how great it would be for the entire world were the US and Russia to get along famously. Do they really think there's more money to be made with the US and Russia at odds than cooperating? How much dumber could it get than that? Do they really think whatever money is being made by whomever is worth it to lie and risk war? Some people really are that dumb, obviously.
Wow, what a bad article: "Exclusive: FBI document warns conspiracy theories are a new domestic terrorism threat"
I could go on and on about why the article is bad. Let me point out a few glaring issues.
1. Pizzagate was not a monolithic concept.
It ranged from the issue that there is pedophilia in high places, which we all know to be true, to the fact that there were strange issues with some of the people pointed to by more ardent "Pizzagate" adherents (for one, Podesta's extremely disturbing statues in his house) to the extreme version of Pizzagate that did result in the insane belief that children were being sexually abused in the basement that didn't exist.
The point is that beliefs or questions concerning versions of things and "official" versions of things vary greatly and that people shouldn't be all lumped together to be denounced simply because some aspects of some people's versions of "theories" prove way off the mark.
2. The article points to Yahoo News as a source of proof concerning Seth Rich when the fact is, the Yahoo News article supposedly proving Russia was behind the Seth Rich story or that the Seth Rich story has no merit (isn't reasonable or rational) has been thoroughly debunked.
A good article would cite the articles that disagree on the merits with the Yahoo News' version.
3. The article leaves out the fact that the Russiagate (conspiracy) narrative that led to the Mueller investigation has completely and utterly collapsed.
That conspiracy didn't even rate being called a theory, as we know it was made up wholesale by the real deep-state, which directed John Brennan and his ilk to stop Trump with whatever lies it would take, not that Trump is, or ever was, a good guy.
If that conspiracy theory had succeeded, how much violence would have resulted in the world and possibly domestically?
We speak to Carter Page, former Foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign on the collapse of the Trump-Russia scandal and the Mueller investigation, how Christopher Steele’s allegations led to the media buying his misinformation for years, how he has been personally affected by Russiagate and more
Video: "Google Immunity Must Be Revoked, Whistleblower Proves They're 'Highly Biased Political Machine'"
I have to hand it to Ben Swann. He always says that the censorship is happening to both the right and the left. Trump and others are forever only mentioning the right, the right, the right, and that Google has a left-wing bias. Google doesn't have a left-wing bias. Google has a corporate bias. Google has a make-money-for-Google bias. Google has a don't-piss-off-the-deep-state bias.
Ben's been talking about this since 2016. I've been talking about it since before Google removed Blog Search from its platform.
This site right here used to come up number one in tons of searches. It used to get tens of thousands of hits a day, and I don't mean search engine hits. There would be thousands of real individuals who'd come here and comment and the rest. Well, those days ended the very moment Google started playing God, which didn't take long.
I warned those who didn't seem to care that this site was disappearing, but they figured it couldn't happen to them. Well, it could happen to them. It has happened to them.
I've even tried to tell all of them what to do about it, but they've refused to listen to that too: a non-profit, donations-driven replacement of Google.
Generally, their plan is to get the Democratic Party to reform. I won't even offer them a sarcastic "good luck with that."
Here's Ben: Google Immunity Must Be Revoked, Whistleblower Proves They're "Highly Biased Political Machine":
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has been smeared as an Assad apologist for her efforts to end the US-backed proxy war and her skepticism of US military strikes in Syria. MIT professor emeritus Ted Postol, a leading missile expert and informal Gabbard advisor, defends Gabbard's stance and criticizes the OPCW's continued silence on a leaked document that suggests the April 2018 gas attack in Douma was staged.
Big mistake: ICE officer uses a truck to force Jewish protesters out of his way at an ICU detention center
Here's RT's article on it: "Truck drives into protesters blocking entrance to ICE detention center."
Obviously, the Jewish protesters are not Netanyahu's kind of Jews. I guess he'd call them self-hating and anti-Semitic because they don't believe in further smashing the lives of those already oppressed due to fascism. They wouldn't even be protesting if the US weren't mistreating the innocent and those who are refugees due to idiotic, greedy US foreign policy.
Well, more power to those Jewish protesters! They may not be Netanyahu's or Trump's kind of Jews, but they are my kind. They are doing for others what they'd want others to do for them. That's called the "Golden Rule," but that's severely under valuing it. It's called love.
How does the anti-Tulsi Gabbard group, Bellingcat, answer the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media's report, "How the OPCW’s investigation of the Douma incident was nobbled"?
Bellingcat claims to be an independent, opensource, investigative outfit. It is decidedly anti-Tulsi Gabbard. In fact, Bellingcat did a hit piece on her because she says on her campaign website that she has reason to question the "official" findings that the Assad government of Syria conducted certain chemical weapons attacks it has been accused of conducting. The Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media has produced a report, "How the OPCW’s investigation of the Douma incident was nobbled," that supports Tulsi Gabbard's reason to question the "official" narrative.
