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.

NY Times attempts to make Armageddon sound reasonable…

 

Mr. Trump issued new authorities to Cyber Command last summer…

But now the American strategy has shifted more toward offense, officials say, with the placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before. It is intended partly as a warning, and partly to be poised to conduct cyberstrikes if a major conflict broke out between Washington and Moscow.

This is illegal pre-emptive war.

Against a country that could potentially vaporize all of us and the rest of mammal life on the planet.

Barack Obama’s return just reminds us how he fueled the distrust that led to Donald Trump

Who cares if Obama belatedly cheers for transparency and accountability? He should admit that he made the government more dangerous at home and abroad.

Twenty years ago, in Moscow, Matt Taibbi was a misogynist asshole—and possibly worse

The piece skewers Taibbi for his sexual abuse of women in Russia. My beef with Taibbi is strictly about him taking it upon himself to propagandize about 9/11 for money, which I will have to go into at a later time. He was wrong, of course, and a fucking asshole propped up by the for-profit press to lie and spin the 9/11 cover-up.

Kevin Spacey also gets some unwanted limelight today…
