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.>>>

Google, Mozilla Blacklist Gab’s ‘Dissenter’ Free Speech Browser Extension

Both Google and Mozilla have banned Gab’s Dissenter.com extension from their browsers’ extension stores. Dissenter’s mission is to bring a free speech comment system to every site on the Internet.

The developers at Gab recently launched a new platform called Dissenter, which acts as a comment system for every website on the internet. Dissenter has a web interface, but also created an extension for popular web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Now both companies, which together hold a large majority of the PC browser market, have blacklisted the Dissenter extension from their browser extension galleries.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted criticism at The Post for its coverage of Omar’s remarks — which included how “some people did something” on 9/11 — but offered no similar rebuke of her close pal.

“I’m not going to quote the NY Post’s horrifying, hateful cover,” AOC wrote. “Here’s 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. She‘s done more for 9/11 families than the GOP who won’t even support healthcare for 1st responders – yet are happy to weaponize her faith.”

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.

#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.

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 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.

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

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 ”

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.

Facebook, Twitter & Google to testify before Senate panel on censorship of conservatives

Three tech and social media giants are scheduled to send their representatives to testify at a Senate hearing, following a string of accusations alleging that they foster a left-wing bias and routinely censor conservative voices.

Facebook’s public policy director Neil Potts will attend the hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution next Wednesday, the company said.

News media get it wrong on the Golan Heights

When the New York Times (3/26/19) reported on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s fait accompli pronouncement that nation-states can now seize territories acquired in defensive wars—after President Donald Trump announced via tweet that the United States asserts Israeli sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights—it seriously misled readers on the status of Israel’s illegal settlements on the occupied territories of the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

While the Washington Post’s report (3/26/19) on Netanyahu’s pronouncement made it clear that UN Security Council Resolution 497 in 1981 condemned Israel’s formal takeover of the Golan Heights as “null and void and without international legal effect,” the Times report, by David Halbfinger and Isabel Kershner, obscures the illegality of Israeli settlements by attempting to make “practical and legal distinctions” between the settlements in the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

You elected them to write new laws. They’re letting corporations do it instead.

ach year, state lawmakers across the U.S. introduce thousands of bills dreamed up and written by corporations, industry groups and think tanks.

Disguised as the work of lawmakers, these so-called “model” bills get copied in one state Capitol after another, quietly advancing the agenda of the people who write them.

A two-year investigation by USA TODAY, The Arizona Republic? and the Center for Public Integrity reveals for the first time the extent to which special interests have infiltrated state legislatures using model legislation.

USA TODAY and the Republic found at least 10,000 bills almost entirely copied from model legislation were introduced nationwide in the past eight years, and more than 2,100 of those bills were signed into law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's face it, America's alleged "legislators" are simply bought and paid for by the corporations, which is why laws generally tend to favor them, rather than We the People.

How can this be prevented?!? For one, we need a straightforward, honest election system, with manual ballots substituted for electronic voting machines, which are, sadly universally breakable, in term of having the capability to shift votes from one candidate to another.

Secondly (and I know that this won't happen before pigs become aware that they are aerodynamic), no corporate money should be allowed in any campaign, because this gives strength and legitimacy to this fraudulent, corporate-purchased legislation.
