HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP MAY FUEL COLON CANCER

It’s no secret that health experts and nutritionists have been wary of high fructose corn syrup for years. But now they have one more reason to advocate against it: a new study published in the journal Science says that the sugary substance boosts the growth of cancerous tumors in mice.

The study, conducted by researchers at Cornell University and Baylor University, found that consuming a modest amount of high-fructose corn syrup every day—about the equivalent of drinking one can of soda—can accelerate the growth of cancerous tumors in mice’s intestines.

SHOCKING LEAK REVEALS FACEBOOK LEVERAGED USER DATA TO REWARD FRIENDS, PUNISH ENEMIES

As traders focused on bank earnings and the outlook for global growth, NBC News wrested the market's attention back toward Facebook by publishing a report on what appears to be the largest leak of internal documents since the data privacy scandal that has dogged the company for more than a year erupted with the first reports about Cambridge Analytica's 'improper' leveraging of Facebook user data to influence elections.

Some 4,000 pages of documents shared with the network news organization by a journalist affiliated with the ICIJ, the same organization that helped bring us the Panama Papers leaks, revealed that Facebook had employed sensitive user data as a bargaining chip to attract major advertisers and close other deals between 2011 and 2015, when the company was struggling to cement its business model following its botched 2012 IPO.

AMERICA’S WAR AGAINST IRAN & VENEZUELA’S “DEEP STATES” IS GOING PUBLIC

it’s clear that the US desires to dismantle Iran and Venezuela’s supposedly interconnected influence networks in Latin America as the next step in fortifying “Fortress America“, and while “deep state” wars such as this one have been going on for decades, it’s hitherto unprecedented for any country to make such a crusade public since the end of the Old Cold War when the US used to make similar claims about the USSR and its communist proxies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The trajectory that US foreign policy has taken of late, should scare the stuffing out of reasonable people; a category within which I hope,, I still belong.

You have a President who appears, at this point in his Presidency, to be a President In Name only, has now been thoroughly subsumed by the US Deep State, and ever willing to do its bidding.

The Neocon Mouthpiece, the Mouth that Pours, belongs to no other than Mike Pompeo, who appears to let his Dominionist faith rule his foreign policy. If you haven't read the following article, perhaps now is the time to do so.

The Rapture and the Real World: Mike Pompeo Blends Beliefs and PolicyThe article goes on to state:

"Though Mr. Trump is secular, white evangelicals are a big part of his voter base, and some of his major foreign policy moves, planned or supported by Mr. Pompeo, are intended to shore up political support.

The most notable examples involve Israel. When Mr. Trump moved the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, evangelicals applauded.

Studies show that white evangelicals are much more likely than other Americans to believe that Israel fulfills a biblical prophecy. Known as Christian Zionists, they believe God promised the land to the Jews, and that the gathering of Jews in Israel is foretold in the prophecy of the rapture — the ascent of Christians into the kingdom of God."

Of course, Netanyahu just stands there, and smiles, knowing that whatever he wants from the US, he will get, even if it is a massive war against Iran, which will surely translate as a war against Russia, paid for only in American money, and American blood.

Mr. Pompeo talks about the rapture. “We will continue to fight these battles,” he said at a “God and Country Rally” in 2015, because there is a “never-ending struggle” until “the rapture.”

Folks, I am having a palm to forehead moment, at his having said this. This denotes ancient friends (the original Hebrews, not the Khazars who currently run Israel) and ancient enemies, with whom this flavor of Christianity wants to engage, militarily, like present day Iran, for no logical reason other than an horrific mis-read of what Christian "destiny" looks like.

What would be a "logical, sane " foreign policy, would be one of engaging, not enraging, potential geopolitical assets, like China and Russia; being a part of the belt and road economy; and learning to live within one's means as a nation.

But Dominionists (and I am certain Pompeo is one of these people), believe that by bringing the world into a living hell of a total world war, they will will pave the way for Jesus to come down, and transition all living faithful up to heaven, in what is described by them as, "THE RAPTURE".

And folks, if what I am about to post, doesn't give you the heebe-jeebies, I do not know what will. And the article is datelined last December

"Anyone wondering what the true impetus was behind U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision on Wednesday to unilaterally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital needed only to view the image of the president when he made the formal announcement" from Harretz:

The U.S. evangelical community is in raptures over Trump's decision to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel, believing it moves the world closer to Armageddon

The article continues to state: "Glittering Christmas decorations festooned across the White House hallway enveloped Trump, with Vice President Mike Pence deliberately – if a bit awkwardly – placed directly behind the president’s shoulder, ensuring that no camera angle could leave him out of the picture."

So folks, what we have here is a very religiously deranged person, setting US foreign policy, with unending visions of wars and more wars with which to "open the gates of both Heaven (and Hell) to attempt to achieve what Secretary of State Pompeo believes is the Bible's "last stand in Armageddon". He is, of course, aided and abetted in these manners by John Bolton, Security Council to the President.

So I submit to you; can a person whose religious fantasies rule his both life, and his illogically insane foreign policies, be a proper person to set US foreign policy, when ALL he wants, due to his eshatology, is to create a world where wars are certain, but responsible, fence-mending with potential allies is considered idiocy and lunacy?!?

Because folks, this completely off the course/on the skids path upon which we are moving, due to Pompeo's beliefs, will most likely see us at war with Russia; China; and God only knows what part of the rest of the world.

Right now, it is too damned bad that the US doesn't have a 25th Amendment equivalent to that for the President, for the Secretary of State; and it is high time that Trump see the reasons behind the wars Pompeo is trying to ignite,but are not necessary for the US or the World; they are, unfortunately, necessary for Pompeo's distorted view of the world, and its most dystopian future possible, to come to pass.

Bombshell! As Promised, Assange Dumps ALL Wikileaks Files – Here They Are!

This is absolutely incredible and for those who actually do investigative journalism, this is going to be source material for possibly years to come. As co-founder of Wikileaks Julian Assange was arrested and dragged from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, he stated the files would be dumped, and unlike the state controlled media, you could bank on him following through with what he said.

Click here to view the massive document dump from Wikileaks.

Assange had made it known this was coming as a result of his arrest. Now, once again, he’s made good on his word in the face of the US government’s threats to criminalize him for something that other press and publishers do all the time.

LIST: Top Facebook Executives and Their Career Links to the DC Swamp

With Facebook taking a very strong stance against so-called fake news and foreign interference in what passes for democracy in the United States and particularly given its recent association with the Atlantic Council and its Digital Forensic Research Lab. I would be remiss if I didn't thank Matt Agorist at the Free Thought Project, one of the entities that was purged by Facebook in October 2018, for inspiring this posting

In no particular order, let's look at some of Facebook's key personnel and their relationship to Washington:

Pulitzer Prize Board Awards Coverage of Mass Shootings, Trump Probes

Pulitzer Prizes for excellence in US journalism were awarded to several national and local media outlets for stories on mass shootings and alleged scandals involving President Donald Trump.

Three Pulitzer Prizes were given for coverage of gun violence within the US over the past year, the organization said on Monday. The South Florida Sun Sentinel received the prize for public service for covering the murder of 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February 2018.

Supporting Israel is now ‘liability’ for Democrats, but ’60 Minutes’ doesn’t trouble Pelosi about it

Yesterday in a surprising move, Nancy Pelosi met with three British members of Parliament who have left the Labour Party over its position on Israel, which they say is anti-Semitic. Pelosi tweeted the meeting with the message that we must fight anti-semitism everywhere.

The meeting was another sign that Pelosi is going to lay down the law on support for Israel. Remember, she has said that the Capitol will crumble and fall before the Democratic Party abandons its support for Israel. Remember, that she groveled at AIPAC 3 weeks ago without a word of criticism of Netanyahu, despite appeals by liberal Zionists to do so.

Then last night “60 Minutes” did a glowing profile of Nancy Pelosi as the progressive dragonslayer opposed to Donald Trump, the force that will keep the Democratic Party unified, and Israel was never mentioned. There was brief reference to the new progressive wave in the party. Pelosi got to dismiss those women out of hand and claim the mantle for herself:

The Media’s 7 Years of Lies about Julian Assange Won’t Stop Now

For seven years, from the moment Julian Assange first sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, they have been telling us we were wrong, that we were paranoid conspiracy theorists. We were told there was no real threat of Assange’s extradition to the United States, that it was all in our fevered imaginations.

For seven years, we have had to listen to a chorus of journalists, politicians and “experts” telling us that Assange was nothing more than a fugitive from justice, and that the British and Swedish legal systems could be relied on to handle his case in full accordance with the law. Barely a “mainstream” voice was raised in his defence in all that time.

From the moment he sought asylum, Assange was cast as an outlaw. His work as the founder of Wikileaks – a digital platform that for the first time in history gave ordinary people a glimpse into the darkest recesses of the most secure vaults in the deepest of Deep States – was erased from the record.

YouTube Mistakenly Tags Notre Dame Fire Video As '9/11 Conspiracy'

Demonstrating just how poorly designed its algorithms intended to filter out 'conspiratorial' content can be, particularly when reacting in real time to a breaking news event, YouTube has apologized after its recently launched conspiracy-filtering feature accidentally tagged a livestream of the devastating fire at Notre Dame cathedral as a '9/11 conspiracy' video.

As Bloomberg pointed out, shortly after the fire broke out, several news organizations launched live streams of the horrific blaze on YouTube.

Below a stream from France24 and several other channels, a box of text appeared bearing a snippet from Encyclopedia Britannica about the 9/11 attacks, indicating that the footage had been mistakenly labeled a 9/11 conspiracy video.

Facebook Investors Want To ‘Check Zuckerberg’s Power,’ Oust Him From Company Chair

Facebook’s shareholders are gearing up for a fresh attempt to oust its founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg as chairman, as well as shake up the company’s governance, in the wake of “severe controversies” for the social network.

Documents filed by Facebook to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on April 12 outline the schedule of business for the company’s annual shareholder meeting at the end of next month, and include eight shareholder proposals. One of these calls for replacing Zuckerberg as company chair with a new independent member, so as to clearly separate the roles of company chair and CEO.

In the filing, stockholders complain that Zuckerberg holds about 60 percent of Facebook’s voting shares, meaning the board has “only a limited ability to check Mr Zuckerberg’s power.”

Fox's Wallace not 'comfortable' playing full 9/11 video tweeted by Trump

Fox News's Chris Wallace said Sunday that he was not "comfortable" playing the entirety of a video President Trump tweeted Friday showing scenes from the 9/11 terrorist attack combined with remarks from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

Wallace began playing the video before cutting it off.

"Now, that was the only five seconds we felt comfortable showing," Wallace told White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "It goes on in a much worse way of her seeming, no question about it, to minimize 9/11 and then horrible images from 9/11."

"Why is the president comfortable putting out horrible images like that?" Wallace asked. "Does he worry at all about inciting violence against Muslims in general or Ilhan Omar in specific?"

US MILITARY ATTACK ON VENEZUELA MULLED BY TOP TRUMP ADVISORS AND LATIN AMERICAN OFFICIALS AT PRIVATE DC MEETING

EXCLUSIVE: AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC EYE, THE CENTER FOR STRATEGIC AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES (CSIS) THINK TANK HOSTED A TOP-LEVEL, OFF-THE-RECORD MEETING TO EXPLORE US MILITARY OPTIONS AGAINST VENEZUELA.
BY MAX BLUMENTHAL

The Washington, DC-based think tank the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) hosted a private roundtable on April 10 called “Assessing the Use of Military Force in Venezuela.” A list of attendees was provided to The Grayzone and two participants confirmed the meeting took place. They refused to offer any further detail, however.

A WHO’S WHO OF TRUMP ADMINISTRATION COUP ADVISERS

The CSIS check-in list not only confirms that the Trump administration and its outside advisors are mulling options for a military assault on Venezuela; it also outlines the cast of characters involved in crafting the regime change operation against the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, please: a word.

Have you and your colleagues in this ill-considered potential assault on Venezuela, collectively imbibed the "Koolaid" to the point where you believe that a military assault on Venezuela is both a "reasonable and moral thing" for the US government and military to do?!?

Forgive me, sir, but the candidate Trump spoke of ending these horrific wars, largely to be in control of of the world's petroleum resources; and now, as President Trump, it appears to those of us who actually believed this just might happen, understand, very clearly, that it will not happen, now that you have well and truly been "absorbed" by the Neocon Borg.

Not only are these immoral, illegal wars going to continue, under your watch, but new wars are going to be started in the name American dollar hegemony, and in terms of this Venezuela is an absolute prize. As stated at Google:

"The proven oil reserves in Venezuela are recognized as the largest in the world, totaling 297 billion barrels (4.72×1010 m3) as of 1 January 2014. ... The energy and oil ministry said it had certified an additional 12.4 billion barrels (2.0×109 m3) of proven reserves in the country's Faja del Orinoco region."

As you are aware, there are Chinese and Russian troops in place in Venezuela right now, working to protect the infrastructure as best they can, and working with the Venezuelan "top brass" in terms of protecting the country from any possible invasion from the US.

Sir, forgive me, but if your alleged "experts" here have any sense, at all, they will paraphrase what my late Grandmother used to say, if things were out of control, and there was nothing to be done, and that phrase was "The horse is already out of the barn!!"

Mr. President, when Guaido faltered, and was unable to rally the Venezuelan people to his side, the US government and military "lost the window" of opportunity for such an action. (And sir, is THIS the best our "intelligence community" could have possibly come up with?!?
The Making of Juan Guaido IF true, they should be fired, en masse!!

The American government and military could have possibly "gotten away" with an action like this, even through the 70s, or 80s; however, at this point in the 21st century, let me tell you what you are facing; and sir, forgive me, but an invasion of Venezuela is going to earn you "The Mother of All Backlashes".

1. Venezuela has never done anything to the US to warrant an invasion; it is a sovereign country where its financial woes, including a collapse in oil prices; political intrigue, and mismanagement of funds and infrastructure, coupled with US sanctions, are primarily responsible for its horrific economic situation today.

2. In light of the fact that we would be invading a sovereign country where Chinese and Russian troops are already on the ground, any attack on Chinese or Russian assets, would be tantamount to an attack against China and Russia, leaving them little choice but to react in kind. And I hope you ask yourself; would a war for Venezuela's oil reserves really be worth World War III?!?

3. Because of a lack of troop strength, the US government would be forced to go back to imposing a draft, to the anger and outrage of the American people.
And I would ad this caveat: the "booming economy" you have been touting, since nearly the beginning of your presidency, has been great for the one percenters; but not so great for a lot of the rest of us. Financial wrangling with China over trade has absolutely crucified smaller farmers here in the US, and they will not soon forget it.

4. I would very much like to remind you, sir: we cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air. The lessons of Vietnam can only be overlooked at this country's peril; any military advisors who tells you differently, are not telling you the truth.

5. The optics of such an invasion will be horrific, internationally, and the question will be asked; How could a country which holds itself in the highest moral esteem, and is perpetually in a state of self-congratulations for making good, just,and ethical decisions about foreign policy, have transformed into this rapacious, war-mongering, lunatic asylum, in which the inmates have, well and truly, taken over the asylum?!?

Mr. President, please, before it is too late, and the die is cast, abandon this course of action. Let us, for once, be "on the right side of history" by preventing this "Warmageddon" in Venezuela.

With all the US-generated hot spots around the world, where the US government is desperately trying to look like it has had a military "win", but really has not, this country has enough fires raging, geopolitically, before we set another one alight.

You can't make this stuff up. The Headline is almost obscene.

Who would have thought that the mayor of South Bend, the fourth largest city in Indiana, could compete in one of the most crowded primary fields ever? Buttigieg, who is expected to formally launch his campaign Sunday, has emerged as a formidable candidate.

Latest Attacks On Ilhan Omar: Democratic Leadership Has Been Eerily Silent

Latest Attacks On Ilhan Omar Show That Anti-Muslim Hate Isn’t A Partisan Issue
As members of the GOP perpetuate anti-Muslim harassment toward the congresswoman, Democratic leadership has been eerily silent

In addition, her Democratic colleagues have mostly been tepid in their support. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) reacted to Trump’s tweet with a lukewarm response that didn’t acknowledge Omar’s name.

“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence,” Pelosi tweeted. “The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack.”

While the GOP and right-wing media continue to target Omar, America has watched the congresswoman navigate her new position with little support from her own party.>>>

Glenn Greenwald Rages Against Assange Arrest, Battles Journos: ‘It’s the Criminalization of Journalism’

Glenn Greenwald went on the warpath Thursday morning following the arrest of Julian Assange in London.

In a lengthy Twitter rant, Greenwald — founder of The Intercept — blasted those in the media who are not speaking out against the arrest, arguing it is a direct attack on press freedom.

“If you’re a US media star who has spent 2 years claiming to be so concerned about press freedoms over Trump’s mean tweets about your friends, but don’t raise your voice in protest over this grave attack on press freedom, take a hard look in the mirror,” Greenwald wrote.

‘Supine MSM’ won’t sound alarm over Assange arrest despite earlier profiting from his work

The arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, is a severe blow to press freedom, but the mainstream media has no objections, despite never shying away from writing articles based on his publications, analysts told RT.

“What we’re seeing right now is criminalization of journalism; the criminalization of publishing,” analyst Patrick Henningsen said hours after the UK police forcibly removed Assange out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

This “very unfortunate” development affects each and every journalist, but the “supine mainstream media isn’t protesting what’s going on,” he added. The leading Western outlets are “in lockstep with the government of the US, the UK, Spain and others” and just don’t see Assange as their colleague.

There’s “no viable Fourth Estate” anymore, only the “government media complex,” Henningsen said.

Making Sense of Our Russiagate Failure

The most consequential function of journalists is not reporting facts, but establishing a narrative framework for making sense of those facts. In the wake of the Mueller investigation’s whimper-like conclusion, it is apparent that the roots of the Trump-Russia failure—and there is no question that the vast majority of media coverage merited some sort of reverse Pulitzer prize—lay in a collective refusal to subject the story’s broad narrative to critical scrutiny.

For many, that narrative was powerfully attractive. It argued that the triumph of an ill-mannered, self-worshipping, know-nothing reality show star in the 2016 election was not the product of our political establishment’s alienation of key middle American constituencies or the weakness of Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategy. Rather, it was the result of Russia’s malign influence, which co-opted and conspired with Donald Trump to subvert American democracy and the broader international order.

FLASHBACK - Parenting Magazine Warns ‘Blond, Cheerful’ Families Dangerous, Likely Right Wing

Parenting magazine Baby & Family has told readers to beware of families who are “inconspicuous” and “cheerful”, as these warning signs indicate they are right wing and thus “dangerous”.

Depicted with illustrations featuring solely blonde women and children, the report says ordinary parents must take action against right-wing families and make clear that their ideology has no place in the world.

Asserting that the term “right wing” “stirs up anxiety” and brings to mind “burning refugee homes”, skinheads, and the National Socialist Underground (NSU) group who carried out a string of violent attacks on foreign people, Baby & Family notes that people “rarely connect it with women, family and children”.

Leaked Google Memos Reveal Aggressive "News Blacklist" Used Against Conservative Sites

Leaked internal documents reveal that Google maintains a blacklist preventing certain news outlets from appearing in search results for news or other specific sections, according to the Daily Caller's J. Arthur Bloom.

What this means is that while search results from blacklisted outlets will still appear in the generic "ten blue links" portion of search results - targeted sites will not be allowed in sections such as "top news" or "videos," according to the report.

"The purpose of the blacklist will be to bar the sites from surfacing in any Search feature or news product. It will not cause a demotion in the organic search results or de-index them altogether," reads the policy document.

Of note, Zero Hedge was removed from Google's News category after the 2016 US election.

WIKILEAKS ACCUSES ECUADORIAN EMBASSY OF ‘EXTENSIVE SPYING OPERATION’ AGAINST ASSANGE

WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson has alleged that an extensive spying operation was conducted against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during his time in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

During an explosive press conference, which is still underway, Hrafnsson alleges that the operation was designed to get Assange extradited. WikiLeaks claims that it was told that Assange’s extradition was imminent.

“We know that there was a request to hand over visitor's logs from the embassy and video recordings from within the security cameras in the embassy,” Hrafnsson said, adding that he believes the information had been handed over to the administration of US President Donald Trump.

Cameras used within the embassy in the last year have the capacity to record audio meaning that every single meeting held by Julian Assange with his doctors and lawyers have been recorded, according to former Consul of Ecuador to London, Fidel Narvaez.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am quite certain, that whatever other issues may come up,Julian Assange will wind up in American custody, sooner or later.

One has to wonder if President Trump is going to hand off Assange to someone in the CIA with a very formidable,lying in your face" reputation for "extracting" information.

I also have to wonder; is Assange's first meeting with American officials come be that personage who ran operations for the Thai government; that lady's name would be Gina Haspel.

BEX ALERT - Flat Earthers And Climate Change Deniers Beware, New Book Has Your Number

However, what Crease fails to point out in his polemic against science denial, is that in terms of climate change at least, Earth has been warmer than it is today on numerous occasions. And we’re still here to talk about it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note the attempt to equate the flat earth hoaxers with those who question the claims that humans alone are warming the planet (especially as another blizzard hits the midwest).

#MeToo-gagged media silent as holes emerge in Michael Jackson abuse documentary

But in late March, Jackson biographer Mike Smallcombe raised concerns over a key date in the documentary. While Safechuck alleged he was abused in the train station at Jackson’s Neverland, it turns out that construction of the train station didn’t begin until the end of 1993, and it did not open until 1994 — two years after Safechuck said the abuse ended at age 14.

Smallcombe even tweeted images of construction permits for the train station on Twitter to prove his case. Responding to Smallcombe’s unearthed documents, director Reed appeared to admit that the dates in his documentary were wrong, before quickly backtracking and insisting that there was “no clash of dates.”

Twitter FINALLY under the microscope after GOP senator calls for “third-party audit” over de-platforming bias

There’s a small light at the end of the online censorship tunnel, as a prominent Republican member of Congress has decided to take action in support of internet free speech by pushing for social media giant Twitter, a major free speech offender, to undergo an official third-party audit.

Aiming to stem the tide of conservatives, Christians, white people, and other persecuted groups being “de-platformed” on social media simply for expressing “politically incorrect” speech, GOP Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri has officially put Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey “on notice” that he’s not going to stand idly by and watch the First Amendment get trampled by Big Tech.

As we earlier reported, it all started with Alex Jones and his Infowars network, which last summer was removed not only from Twitter, but also from most other major social media platforms. And as we warned, it hasn’t stopped there.

Media pulled off big con with Russia collusion story

America got conned again.

It was all a big set-up. A ruse. A dirty canard.

The whole thing was one giant lie.

And everybody peddling it — from House Democratic leaders, to Senate Democrats running for president, to the Senate Republican who reported the whole thing in the first place, to the roaring lions of the Great White Media — knew it was a lie.

TIME sinks to new depths of hypocrisy and propaganda with latest cover story on scary Russia

With the Mueller investigation wrapped up and interest in Russia’s alleged misdeeds against the US threatening to wane among the masses, mainstream media has decided to widen the net and refocus Russia’s “other” evil schemes.

TIME magazine has gotten a head start with its latest cover story, authored by journalist Simon Shuster, literally titled “Russia’s other plot” and illustrated with the usual clichéd, Soviet-inspired scary red and black artwork.

Jewish Lobbyists Like the ADL Are Behind the Disgraceful Amazon Book Bannings

As most are surely aware, the last year or two has seen a growing crackdown on free speech and free thought across the Internet, with our constitutionally-protected First Amendment rights being circumvented through the agency of monopolistic private sector corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Although as yet our government has not gained the power to ban discordant views nor punish their advocates, anonymous tech company censors regularly take these steps, seemingly based upon entirely opaque and arbitrary standards which lack any power of appeal. No one really knows why some individuals are banned or “de-platformed” and others are not, and surely this looming uncertainty has imposed self-censorship upon hundreds of individuals for every publicized victim who receives an exemplary punishment.

“Assange Is Not A Journalist!” Yes He Is, Idiot.

As we discussed yesterday, whenever Assange is in the news and people are defending him you always see a bunch of hyper-emotional empire loyalists running around online trying to manage the narrative about him. One of the most common talking points which comes up is that Assange is “not a journalist”.

The reason this talking point comes up, of course, is because the WikiLeaks founder is besieged by powerful forces who are attempting to imprison him for publishing inconvenient facts about them, and his defenders often voice their concerns about what this means for the future of press freedoms. The completely baseless claim that Assange is “not a journalist” is used in an attempt to defuse the argument that his prosecution by the US government could lead to the same fate for any news media outlet which publishes leaks on the US government anywhere in the world. If he’s not a journalist, then his prosecution sets no precedent for real journalists.

American Internet Companies are Privatized Instruments of American Geopolitical Power, and They’re Not Even Hiding It

I was in the New York Public Library recently doing research in the archives when I stumbled on a 1944 pamphlet from Western Electric, the old American techno-telephone monopolist. It’s called “Circuits for Victory” and its 40 glossy, slickly produced pages are dedicated to one thing: celebrating all the ways that the company’s telecommunication technology helps the United States government fight and win wars.

The pamphlet is a historical document, but if you squint at it right and replace “Western Electric” with, say, “Facebook” or “Google” or “Amazon,” you actually get an accurate sense of what Silicon Valley monopolies are today: privatized extensions of American Empire.

TWITTER BACKS OFF PARTNERSHIP WITH SPLC AMID BOMBSHELL REPORTS. AMAZON STAYS SILENT

Twitter appears to be one of the only big tech companies to back out of an alliance with the Southern Poverty Law Center after the group’s long-time president was fired for unspecified conduct reasons, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

“The SPLC is not a member of Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council or a partner the company has worked with recently,” a source within the company told TheDCNF. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity and did not disclose when Twitter distanced itself from the SPLC, which was dealt a significant blow in March following reports suggesting the group scams people out of money.

‘Russia has invaded Estonia, NATO is on the way’: German TV plumbs depths with fake war broadcast

A respected German analytical TV program opened its latest edition by informing viewers that Russian forces intruded into the Baltics. Was this "fantasy" just juvenile attention-seeking, or crude pro-NATO propaganda?

“Together with European and German allies, the US army is currently moving through land, air and sea to Estonia to expel Russian forces, which have once again invaded, as in Crimea before,” announced a worried Claus Kleber, host of heute journal, on the national public broadcaster ZDF Thursday night.

As millions of viewers tensed up, the veteran host announced that it was a “gotcha!”

“Do not worry. It is not true. This is just a fantasy scenario – but a realistic one,” said Kleber.

Der Spiegel fires hoaxer, suspends editors amid massive fake news scandal

Der Spiegel, one of Germany’s top news outlets, just said goodbye to one of their blue ribbon reporters and suspended two editors, after a shocking investigation. Claas Relotius, a top reporter who’s won multiple awards, has been revealed as fraud who “invented” stories in at least 14 of his 60 published Der Spiegel articles. In the aftermath, two editors are now also facing the chopping block.

Claas Relotius is not the first member of the establishment media to have conjured up a story; there is a laundry list of mainstream media puppets who’ve taken the news into their own hands. The New York Times, U.S.A. Today, CNN and countless other organizations have been called out for their peddling of false information.

European Union Launches Its Own Online ‘Fact-Checker’ to Fight ‘Europhobics’

The EU has set up its own “fact checking” service in order to combat the spread of so-called “fake news” ahead of May’s European elections.

The new ‘Decoders of Europe’ site, based on the Boulevard St Germain in Paris, seeks to “answer a series of questions or accusations, explaining what constitutes the reality and sometimes the complexity of European policies. Beyond these explanations, our goal is also to better inform, on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, what works in Europe!” according to the EU website.

The site was launched by Isabelle Jegouzo, head of Representation of the European Commission in France. She said “Without getting involved in politics, we want to inform citizens, restore the balance between factual and misinformation ”

GOVERNMENT WANTS TO GIVE STATE POWER TO BAN WEBSITES

Last week Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced he was appointing Amal Clooney as the UK’s envoy on media freedom. Today Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright has put out a government White Paper on ‘Online Harms’ which includes proposals for a regulator which will have the power to ban the websites of non-compliant companies from being accessed in the UK at all. Someone tell Amal quick!

You would think that the likes of Facebook and Twitter would be up in arms – they are not because as Dom Hallas, Executive Director of The Coalition for a Digital Economy (Coadec), says

Sieff: The Most Dangerous Thing Trump Could Do Now Is Let Down His Guard

Uneasy Hangs the Head That Wears a Crown: The Lessons Donald Trump Needs to Learn from William Shakespeare.

Now that President Donald Trump has finally been exonerated from the always farcical Big Lie of Collusion with Russia in the 2016 election, the US leader had better watch out: The Deep State will really go after him now that it's supposed Soft Coup plot has failed.

Who can never afford to rest.

The forces opposed to Trump and his decent, sensible 2016 campaign vision of defusing tensions with Russia worked viciously, relentlessly and long to discredit the 45th President of the United States before he could even get going. The idea that they are now going to sit back like good losers because their entire pyramid of lies on Collusion with Russia has been exposed is ludicrous.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What these masters of destruction have accomplished through their reprehensively divisive actions and false accusations, has been to to encourage future wars, by betting on unstable, hubristic, sociopathic national leaders like Israel's Bibi Netanyahu; creating "regime changes",for example, when Ukraine's Yanukovich was thrown under the proverbial bus in order to "anoint" Pyotr Poroshenko; or cheerleading for new wars to start, like former Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak, when he talks, fondly, of a US pre-emptive strike against Russia being "moral"

I would also like to politely point out to people like Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi, that every second they spend in this deplorable attempt to "cut a sitting President at the knees" (a literary reference, for those of you who didn't know), you are not doing what We the People hired you to do, which is to take care of the people you allegedly represent.

And I will tell you, in no uncertain terms one absolute, and immutable truth; the broad, deep, and dispassionate lens of history (if this planet survives these machinations to actually have a future) will judge you and your actions as criminal in the extreme.

But, of course, your alleged "constituents" never ever mattered in the first place, did they?!?

Winning a seat in the US Congress is much akin to buying the winning lottery ticket, with all the money, all the perks, and all the intel to turn you into a multi-millionaire.

It is a startling revelation of how many members of Congress are actually millionaires; and they can all be found, including their net worth, here:

Every Member of Congress, with documented wealth, in one chart.

Russiagate: A Moral Reckoning Is Due

Authored by Renee Parsons via Off-Guardian.org,

With Russiagate, the Democrats created some powerful karma to answer for; especially for the likes of Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Eric Swalwell, (D-Calif.), both of whom persist in the mindless search for the Holy Grail.

After cheating Bernie out of the nomination in 2016, the Dems had not yet learned their karmic lesson when they lost the Presidential election. The Mueller Report is but the latest of that karmic reckoning.

There is no pride in being one of those who “got it right” that there was no evidence, not a scintilla of material fact to prove collusion between the Trump campaign and the dastardly Russians. As the country has been torn asunder by a two year politically tainted investigation begun with no evidentiary standard and no probable cause, there is little satisfaction to be gained.

The media smoothed the path to British soldiers using Corbyn as target practice

Jonathan Cook says the British media’s and political elite’s constant vilification of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, their questioning of his “security credentials” and their failure to challenge those who accuse him of “anti-Semitism” is legitimizing political violence and could lead to murder.>>
