What Public Opinion on Assange Tells Us About the US Government Direction – “If Trump turns out to be hostile towards Assange, as most people expect, then a reasonable conclusion would be that Trump is more concerned about retaining in the 2020 Presidential contest the financial backing of America’s billionaires, the mega-donors (who hate Assange and what he stands for) than of retaining his existing voter-support.” – Eric Zuesse
The Legal Narrative Funnel That’s Being Used To Extradite Assange – “Isn’t it interesting how an Ecuadorian “asylum conditions” technicality, a UK bail technicality, and a US whistleblowing technicality all just so happened to converge in a way that just so happens to look exactly the same as imprisoning a journalist for telling the truth?” – Caitlin Johnstone
If Trump is So Worried About ‘Fake News’ Why is He Prosecuting WikiLeaks—Who’s Been 100% Right – “Trump, who has been outspoken against ‘Fake News’ is now allowing his administration to prosecute the only outlet who has never had to retract a single story.” – Matt Agorist
From Tribe, to King, to ‘Democracy’ to Mafia – “The dramatic arrest of Jullian Assange, hauled bodily from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, will be touted as an example of ‘rules-based’ politics, and yet his ‘crime’ is to have revealed the underside of modern democracy. The problem is no longer how political leaders come to power, but their growing tendency to adopt criminal behavior, closing their eyes to similar abuse by their people.” – Deena Stryker
Congresswoman Calls Out Assange’s Arrest for What It Is—A Threat to Americans to Toe the Line, Or Else – “Congresswoman and 2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard went on MSNBC and noted how the attack on Assange is an attack on us all.” – The Free Thought Project
Boston Globe Runs Piece Suggesting Tampering With Trump Official’s Food – “I can’t wait for the inevitable New Yorker piece justifying suicide bombing the children of Trump administration officials. The media is just the Left. And the Left’s political radicalism has no stopping point. So neither does the media.” – Daniel Greenfield
Remember Murietta? Dumping unvetted migrants into the cities of political foes was done by Obama first – “The residents protested, and the Obama administration declared them ‘racist’ in a bid to scare them into line.” – Monica Showalter – THAT WAS OK THEN, WHY THE OUTRAGE NOW? IF SANCTUARY CITIES CARE SO MUCH ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, WHY WOULDN’T THEY ACCEPT THOUSANDS MORE WITH OPEN ARMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Child tossed from 3rd floor at Mall of America; suspect had been arrested there twice before – “A 5-year-old boy plummeted three floors Friday after being pushed or thrown from a balcony at the Mall of America, according to witnesses, and a 24-year-old man with a history of causing disturbances at the mall was in custody.” – Jeff Baenen – A 5 YEAR OLD WHITE CHILD IS THROWN OFF A BALCONY BY A BLACK MAN. WHY IS THE MEDIA NOT COVERING THIS AS A HATE CRIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Garbage Party: NY Dems reject bill to provide tuition aid to families of fallen vets, but do it for illegal aliens – “Democrats in New York — home to Bill DeBlasio, Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez, and the Cuomo dynasty — are continuing their competition with California to see which state can become the biggest anti-Trump haven for America haters.” – Jon Dougherty
It’s Time For John Bolton To Go – “Has there ever been a single individual in the Trump administration who has caused more damage to the President’s agenda? The Walrus has subverted his superior one too many times.” – William Craddick
Russian Military Expert Says Time for Russia to Prepare for War – “What does Siluanov think Russiagate was about other than to prevent Trump from normalizing relations with Russia? The last president who tried to rein in the military/security complex was John F. Kennedy, and he was assassinated. On Trump they used Russiagate instead of bullets, and it proved almost as effective.” – Paul Craig Roberts
Investigation Nation: Mueller, Russiagate, and Fake Politics – “Russiagate is Dead! Long Live Russiagate! And it still is. Here’s the demonstration in New York last Thursday, convened by the MoveOn/Maddow #Resistance, singing from “the hymnal” about how Trump is a “Russian whore” who is “busy blowing Vladimir”: This is delusional lunacy.” – Jim Kavanagh
Russophobia, a WMD (Weapon of Mass Deception) – “There we have it: the poisoning of our minds by the media and politicians which are owned and controlled by the US-UK-EU 1%, who benefit from Western Hegemony. So, these deluded few are now desperately defending it from the rising powers led by Russia and China with India not far behind demanding a multi-polar, democratic world order.” – Jean Ranc
What divides Brexiters and Remainers? – “The Brexit roller-coaster ploughs on unpredictably with moves by the House of Commons to block the ‘no deal’ Brexit that most Brexiters voted for.” – Gloria Moss
Salvini Is Positioning Italy for Confrontation – “I realized early on that Salvini was two things. He was both a radical who was also methodical. He’s not flaming out in a blaze of glory here. He’s building his case against the EU slowly, allowing history to come to him. He’s stayed far away from the Brexit debacle, even though he knows he has the power to stop the betrayal of the vote and force the divorce.” – Tom Luango
MMT is a spectacularly Dem idea – “Modern Monetary Theory and the ideas of the Democratic Party’s far left fit like hand and glove. Pleas for universal medical coverage, free college tuition and a minimum $15 per hour wage can all be paid for by setting the money presses free. The theory has become a vehicle for far-left spokesperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) to pay for her “New Green Deal” – a 14-page manifesto of climate change-related spending costed at up to $1 trillion. MMT is clearly a Democratic-driven initiative with apparently few, if any, adherents on the Republican side. In contrast, the GOP is favoring a return to the gold standard.” – Ahead Of The Herd – GOOD EXPLANATION OF MMT!!!!
