Joe Giambrone

In 2016, Hillary Clinton deserved to lose, and she did. Her deception, her cheating in the primary elections, was well-documented, despicable, dishonest, untrustworthy. Her money-laundering scheme at DNC should have been prosecuted under campaign finance laws. Her record of warmongering and gleefully gloating over death and destruction was also well established. On national TV she bragged about the mutilation of Moammar Qaddafi: “We came, we saw, he died!” Clinton also lied to the country about “Weapons of Mass Destruction” in Iraq and voted for that obviously illegal war. This after 8 years of her husband’s genocidal sanctions killed a minimum of 500,000 innocent Iraqi children.

This person was undeserving of anyone’s support.

What Bernie Sanders suffered and endured in 2016 was outrageous. Yet, he persisted and to this day attempts to help common Americans as much as he can. He does what he believes to be the right thing. His integrity and his record of fighting for working Americans are not the points of contention in this race. His opponents have instead opted for every nonsensical conspiracy theory and McCarthyite smear they can concoct, including the most ridiculous of all: the Putin theory, without a single shred of evidence to support it.

Today, however, Senator Bernie Sanders is the only Democrat who beats Trump in poll after poll. The only one. This is no small matter. Trump needs to be beaten in the tangled Electoral College, where a simple numerical victory isn’t enough. Bernie wins, and he has the best overall shot of changing the course of history, steering America away from plutocracy and fascism.

That crucial race is happening right now in the primaries. If Bernie Sanders doesn’t secure 50% of all delegates, then DNC insiders have already signaled that they will steal the nomination and give it to someone else—who will lose to Trump. The real election for the future of America is on Super Tuesday.

It’s either Trump or Bernie. That’s your choice. Your only choice.

Where is your so-called “#Resistance” now?

But Beijing contends that the demanded reforms amount to “economic regime change.” As Michael Hudson puts it:

This is the fight that Trump has against China.  He wants to tell it to let the banks run China and have a free market.  He says that China has grown rich over the last fifty years by unfair means, with government help and public enterprise.  In effect, he wants the Chinese to be as threatened and insecure as American workers.  They should get rid of their public transportation.  They should get rid of their subsidies.  They should let a lot of their companies go bankrupt so that Americans can buy them.  They should have the same kind of free market that has wrecked the US economy.

Neoliberalism Has Met Its Match in China

As US seeks to crush media freedom, we all need to read Assange’s letter from prison

The US government, or rather, those regrettable elements in it that hate truth,  liberty and justice, want to cheat their way into my extradition and death, rather than letting the public hear the truth, for which I have won the highest awards in journalism and have been nominated 7 times for the Nobel Peace Prize. Truth, ultimately, is all we have.

Urgent Message From Editor-in-Chief Mnar Muhawesh on Social Media Censorship
Dear friends and supporters, I have an important announcement to make. Please read this post and SHARE with your friend as this is urgent. The future of MintPress News depends on your support. After the October 11th, 2018 Facebook and Twitter purge of over 800 activist sites and pages — many of which were partner sites with MintPress News — we believe our days as an independent journalism organization on authoritarian social media platforms are numbered.
Since 2012, MintPress News has been at the forefront of exposing the dangers of the national security state, the military-industrial complex, and the corporations that have hijacked our democracy and are destroying the planet. We have stood up strong against a media Goliath [the corporate media] that controls over 90% of what we see, hear and read in equipping the American public with pertinent information that holds the establishment accountable.
Our independent, watchdog journalism is creating a shift in consciousness among the millions of readers we’ve been able to reach in the last 6 years, and the very powers that be are taking notice. They realize the impact MintPress is making and are trying to silence us where we reach most of you and where the majority of people are getting their news from: on social media.
The very establishment the media should be holding accountable are working hand in hand with corporate media giants including The Washington Post and Buzzfeed to play thought police and “fake news” spotters that have targeted MintPress on Facebook. To make matters worse NATO funded think tanks like theAtlantic Council has also partnered up with Facebook to suppress our content, flag our posts as “inappropriate” or “spam” and in many cases censor us under the guise of fighting “fake news”.
Facebook has been flagging several of our articles and our reader’s political comments as spam. It’s only a matter of time before our page and some of our readers end up in Facebook jail, or purged completely. Facebook has also admitted to deleting user accounts at the behest of the U.S. and Israeli governments.
Hopefully we’re wrong, but it feels like our Facebook days are numbered.
And it’s not just Facebook. MintPress articles are even being blocked by Google News in search results. Not only that, but we are consistently being threatened to have our ads cut off by one of our main sources of revenue: Google Adsense, which is flagging several of our investigative pieces as “not appropriate” for advertisers. This article addressing Obama’s policies as racist is just one example
This has affected our readership and drained our advertising revenue by over 70%. They are doing everything they can to drain our bank accounts and prevent us from reaching our own readers and operate as an organization. As a result, we’ve had to cut staff and restructure our business plan time and time again to be able to function on a very small budget that is stretching us very, very thin. We can no longer rely on ads and are appealing to our readers and supporters to sustain us and help us create better, stronger content.
Our future depends on your support. We need your financial help to not only sustain MintPress’s operation costs but to help us make a comeback against the powers that be who are trying to silence us — before these social media giants wipe us off the map.
While Facebook, Google, and others ramp up their efforts to make watchdog journalism algorithmically disappear, we’re ramping up our efforts to circumvent corporate censorship and provide our readers with the kind of journalism that empowers we the people.
How you can help: Help us raise $25,000 in 60 days
We have an initial first phase fundraising goal of $25,000 to help us sustain some of MintPress News’ operating costs and other journalism projects right here on GoFundMe:
1. An investigative unit led by award winning journalist Max Blumenthal;
2. Bring back “Behind The Headline” video series, hosted by me — Mnar A. Muhawesh;
3. Series reporting in censored conflict zones like Yemen + more.
We are fighting real “fake news” that is choking up the airwaves produced by the establishment, corporate media, but we can’t win against them in educating the masses without your help.
We’re offering our donors special gifts like personalized keychains, stickers, reusable shopping bags, stainless steel water bottles (BPA free) and t-shirts with snazzy messages about peace and government accountability. (read more in the link) Check the link in the comments to learn more about what we’re doing to fight for truth.
In solidarity,
Mnar Muhawesh

Evil-Facebook

 

Facebook now removes all comments with links to SOURCES. They mark any comment with a link (that I’ve posted, anyway) as “SPAM.” It’s not spam. It’s the source that destroys the FAKE NEWS the poster is peddling.

It is now impossible to refute garbage fake news with facts, as you cannot link to good sources. Facebook has become an insular hotbed of stupidity and propaganda.

Al-Qaeda claims it is ‘fighting alongside’ US-backed coalition forces in Yemen

So now Trump, like Obama, is helping Saudi proxy terrorists destroy a sovereign state. In a just word, the people supporting the terrorists would be arrested and dragged out to face international war crimes tribunals. These are the true terrorists, the bosses.

John Podesta to Hillary Clinton:

From:john.podesta@gmail.com

Subject: Congrats!

At the same time we should return to plans to provide the FSA, or some group of moderate forces, with equipment that will allow them to deal with a weakened ISIL, and stepped up operations against the Syrian regime. This entire effort should be done with a low profile, avoiding the massive traditional military operations that are at best temporary solutions. While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region. This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the KRG. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure.

 

So, Hillary Clinton and John Podesta know as of 9-27-2014 that both Qatar and Saudi Arabia give arms and money to ISIL and other “radical” Sunni groups, including Al Qaeda of course, which is known as Al Nusrah inside Syria.

The question is: what have they done about it? We know that the Clintons have received millions from those two named countries, among others.

I think it’s time we had a real investigation of just whom the enemy actually is and why all these people are dying in wars of choice cooked up by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Podesta and others in Washingon DC. How have they been bribed by Gulf oil money into betraying us all? Into betraying humanity.

Bernie’s “Political Revolution” = Vote for Clinton and the Neocons

“Hillary is the neocon’s neocon,” said MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. “She will be more of a saber-rattler, more of a neocon, than probably the Republican nominee. I mean, there’s hardly been a military engagement that Hillary hasn’t been for in the past twenty years.”

That’s right, Hillary Clinton is the choice of many of the same neocons who were at one time Public Enemy #1 of Democrats during the George W. Bush presidency. Is it possible to be any more hypocritical than that?

Here are some of the people endorsing Clinton:

Max Boot – A hard-line war hawk and self-declared “American imperialist”

Eliot Cohen – Founding Signatory for the Project for the New American Century

 * Robert Kagan – A former Bush administration official who has been called “the most influential neocon in academe”

Richard Armitage – Former Deputy Secretary of State who admitted that he was the source who first revealed the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame

Madeline Albright – Who said it was “worth it” in describing the 500,000 Iraqi children who died because of U.S. sanctions

Brent Scowcroft – National Security adviser to Bush #1

Henry Paulson – Former Treasury Secretary and key bailout architect

Leon Panetta – Former Director of the CIA

Dan Senor, a leading neoconservative operative and former foreign policy advisor to Mitt Romney, who declared, “Hillary is more hawkish than any of us!”
