Ben Norton:

Max Blumenthal, the editor of the news site The Grayzone, was arrested on the morning of October 25 on a fabricated charge related to the siege of the Venezuelan embassy in Washington, DC that took place between April and May.

A team of DC police officers appeared at Blumenthal’s door at just after 9 AM, demanding entry and threatening to break his door down. A number of officers had taken positions on the side of his home as though they were prepared for a SWAT-style raid.

 

‘This charge is 100% false’: Grayzone editor Max Blumenthal arrested months after reporting on Venezuelan opposition violence

Blumenthal was informed that he was accused of simple assault by a Venezuelan opposition member. He declared the charge completely baseless.

Max Blumenthal is one of the few real journalists left in this plastic fake news empire. He tells the truth about terrorism, foreign policy, Syria, etc. Get his book:

His request for a phone call was denied by DC police and corrections officers, effectively denying him access to the outside world.

Is this the deep state in action already libeling 2020 presidential candidates?

Alternet manages to cut Barack Obama completely out of the narrative, as if he never existed!

Some good investigation is included however.

It’s 2018, and Alternet okays “The Syria Deception.” I was doing it in June of 2012 (unpaid):

Syria: The First Casualty…

And I continued. I did not shy away from Barack Obama’s responsibility for this “regime change” dirty war:

ALTERNET ignores the responsibility of Obama and Clinton with its expose. It is not an independent source, relying on foundation money to produce propaganda. Their intent is to blame as much as possible on Republicans and to gloss over the Democrat responsibility.

“Truthdig” (sic) contributor (and now Counterpunch), with longstanding ties to foundation-funded professional propaganda complex, demonizes dissenters, claims everything critical of White Helmets and Al Qaeda false flags is “fake.”

The Left, Syria and Fake News

Kolhatkar claims she doesn’t want US bombing of Syria, but she ignores seven years of covert arms smuggling to radical Islamists: the reason there is a war there at all. The professional “left” pretends the US hasn’t created the war with its willing partners. This is the type of propaganda Chomsky, et al. have banged out for years. They ignore the weapons, ignore the state-sponsored (CIA) smuggling, and they attack domestic dissenters instead.

For Sonali Kolhatkar’s education, here is everything posted here on the “White Helmets,” a fraudulent organization created to manufacture propaganda for people like Sonali to cry crocodile tears over and sell to western audiences.

The big photo cache of White Helmet members in their former roles as Al Qaeda fighters is the central post not to be missed:

Massive White Helmets Photo Cache

But dissenters are the fakes, Sonali? Not the Al Qaeda/White Helmets creating fake rescues? Not the Al Qaeda connected terrorists caught repeatedly with chemical weapons?

Maybe Sonali Kolhatkar is the real fake in this story…

PS.

In one of Kolhatkar’s own sources, cited in her Counterpunch piece:

Associated Press: Chemical weapons team in Syria kept from alleged attack site

Nuseir, 25, said he ran from the shelter to a nearby clinic and fainted. After he was revived, he returned to the shelter and found his wife and daughters dead, with foam coming from their mouths.

He and two other residents accused the rebel Army of Islam of carrying out the attack. As they spoke, government troops were not far away but out of earshot. Nuseir said a gas cylinder was found leaking the poison gas, adding that he didn’t think it was dropped from the air because it still looked intact.

Oooooops. How does the Army of Islam releasing chlorine in any way implicate Assad or the Russians???

Kolhatkar ignores half a decade’s revelations about the Islamists using chemical weapons, including UN inspector Carla del Ponte:

 

And yet Kolhatkar would arrogantly try to discredit us for knowing far more than she does about the situation. 

He who pays the piper calls the tune.

It’s come to my attention that Max Blumenthal, of Alternet fame, was pro regime-change in Syria before he was against it. Whether he had an honest change of heart is a big question, since he never really explained himself.

Here’s a bit of controversy.

I need to put this out for readers to decide since I promoted his pieces, despite him being connected to foundation-funded propaganda complex Alternet. They are the home of head-bobbing Chomsky drones and worse.

So, how about setting the record straight, Max?

At the time of that controversy, June 2012, this is how I personally handled the crisis in Syria (still far too relevant today):

So sick of foundation funded lies

Misleading as usual. Jumps from Bush to Trump, with gaping hole in the foundation-funded narrative. A full 8-year gaping hole.

The hole is big enough to fly 4 jetliners through when he dares to write ignorantly about the 9/11 attacks. That topic is beyond sickening in the hands of you propagandists. Alternet cares nothing for facts and official admissions, and not one coward on their payroll will dare debate someone knowledgeable.
They willfully ignore everything from the CIA Inspector General, to the counter terrorism Czar, to the head of the senate select intelligence committee to the FBI agents who were blocked from stopping the attacks to a thousand other things, and they keep shoveling the same spin–Big Lie style.
Alternet is demonstrably about spin, not facts, on certain touchy subjects.
