Brazilian criminal complaint against Glenn Greenwald is an attack on Free Press

On Tuesday, a federal prosecutor in Brazil announced a denunciation of American journalist and Intercept co-founder Glenn Greenwald related to his work on a series of stories published on The Intercept and The Intercept Brasil
The denunciation is a criminal complaint that would open the door to further judicial proceedings. It alleges that Greenwald “directly assisted, encouraged and guided” individuals who reportedly obtained access to online chats used by prosecutors and others involved in Operation Car Wash, a yearslong, sprawling anti-corruption investigation that roiled Brazilian politics.
The denunciation will now go before a judge who can approve or deny the request for charges.

The Intercept and Greenwald both released statements Tuesday decrying the federal prosecutor’s accusation as an attack on Brazil’s free press in line with recent abuses by the government of far-right President Jair Bolsonaro. 
Abuses committed by Justice Minister Sergio Moro when he served as the pres…

Bolivia: as elections near, US-backed interim gov’t mobilizes military, arrests opposition leaders

Wednesday, January 22 marks the day that Jeanine Añez is set to stand down as “interim” President of Bolivia, beginning the process for fresh elections set for May 3. Añez came to power in November, following a U.S.-backed coup that deposed the Movement to Socialism’s (MAS) Evo Morales. However, she is certainly not acting as if she intends to relinquish her power, let alone move towards new elections. Instead, she has sent the military, replete with tanks and other armored fighting vehicles, into the capital cities of all nine departments of the country.
MintPress News’ Ollie Vargas was on the scene in the center of the capital La Paz, where he filmed hundreds of armed soldiers performing drills outside the Cathedral of St. Francis and dozens of military vehicles circling the city, sirens on and guns drawn.

The purpose of that is to intimidate people ahead of possible protests against the coup on the 22nd of January…This was a show of force saying you are not going to be able to mar…

BBC faces existential threat. In the 21st century, it has nobody left to lie to

by George Galloway

Part 1

Whoever replaces outgoing BBC Director General Tony Hall, be sure that establishment interests will be in safe hands. But multiple scandals the broadcaster has been involved in damaged it quite possibly beyond repair.

The next director general of the BBC will be formally appointed by Sir David Clementi, educated at Winchester, Oxford and Harvard, a former deputy governor of the Bank of England, chair of insurance giant Prudential, a former director of Rio Tinto Zinc, chair of Virgin Money and CEO of Kleinwort Benson. His grandfather was the governor of Hong Kong.

Be sure then that the interests of the establishment are in safe hands.

But in truth, the new DG will be picked by another public-school Eton-and-Oxford blue-blood, Boris Johnson.

For the BBC is a “state broadcaster,” just as much as the other “state broadcasters” in the world at whom they like to look down their noses.

The government of the day appoints the guiding hands at the BBC who naturally pi…

Brazil’s far-right government backed terror plot against Venezuela, top newspaper reveals

Brazil’s extreme Bolsonaro government backed an attack on Venezuela in a plot to overthrow its elected president. The shocking terror operation has received no coverage in mainstream US media.

Part 2 - Trilogy: 3 planned attacks on Venezuela, with help from foreign countries
With the support of neighboring right-wing countries, Venezuelan military defectors planned to launch three military uprisings against the Venezuelan government on or around Christmas Eve, according to O Globo.

The official name of the operation was Trilogia (Trilogy). One attack targeted Venezuela’s Bolívar state on the southeastern border with Brazil; a second attack was planned as an amphibious invasion; and a third was to take place near Colombia’s border.

Two of these three planned attacks failed, as only one of the groups carried out the orders as planned.

Brazil-backed insurgents crossed into Venezuelan territory and, on December 22, attacked the 513 Selva Mariano Montilla infantry battalion in …

Social Media and Social Control: how Silicon Valley serves the US State Department

Facebook isn’t the only Silicon Valley firm with partisan oversight of what we see: the bipartisan billionaire class and their security state have partnered with tech firms since the dawn of the internet to control the parameters of users’ thinking.
by Morgan Artyukhina 
Part 6 - Bad actors
Fast forward to August 2018: along with other social media platforms with whom it shares tips and information, Facebook has begun targeting voices from, and in defense of, nations targeted by the U.S. State Department for regime change. However, it’s not just Russians any more: some of the voices silenced in the semi-regular sweeping round of bans include Cubans, Venezuelans, Iranians, and Chinese as well. Frequently, these bans coincide with elections in the U.S., though Facebook typically avoids citing election interference in its press releases, giving the media free reign to speculate.

Standard fare is for tips on “inauthentic content” to come from one of two places: the Atlantic Council’s Digita…

Κι όμως, ο Σάντερς μπορεί να νικήσει!

Αλέξανδρος Ζέρβας
Μέρος 2ο - Το «ρεύμα» που έρχεται από το 2016
Οι πρόσφατες δημοσκοπήσεις που δείχνουν τον Μπέρνι Σάντερς να προηγείται στην κούρσα για το χρίσμα των Δημοκρατικών έρχεται απλά να επιβεβαιώσει το «ρεύμα» που καταγράφεται στο εσωτερικό της αμερικάνικης κοινωνίας υπέρ της υποψηφιότητάς του. Πρόκειται για μια εξέλιξη, η οποία μόνο έκπληξη δεν προκαλεί στους περισσότερους.

Άλλωστε, αξίζει να σημειωθεί ότι ακόμη από την καμπάνια του ενόψει των προκριματικών του 2016 ο Σάντερς ήταν ο μόνος υποψήφιος που είχε συλλέξει δωρεές δεκάδων εκατομμυρίων ευρώ, οι οποίες κατά βάση δεν προέρχονταν από  εκατομμυριούχους επιχειρηματίες κι εκπροσώπους λόμπι.

Αντίθετα, εκατομμύρια ήταν οι απλοί Αμερικάνοι (από δασκάλους και νοσοκόμες μέχρι φοιτητές), οι οποίοι είχαν σπεύσει να συνεισφέρουν στην προσπάθειά του. Όλα αυτά αντικατόπτριζαν δε τη ριζοσπατικοποίηση ενός τμήματος της αμερικάνικης κοινωνίας, κυρίως μέσα στην τελευταία δεκαετία.  Η σημερινή επιτυχία Σάντερς λοιπόν μόνο «κεραυνός εν α…

Trump directly threatened the Iraqi prime minister for his approach with China with a false flag and subsequent riots

globinfo freexchange

Here is probably the best proof that the 'anti-interventionist' Donald Trump is an absolute fraud. It seems that the current US president is not only the best option for the establishment right now, but he even follows the CIA playbook to the letter ... by himself. As we approach the 2020 presidential election in the United States, Trump does everything he can to please the warmongering neocons and the deep state elements.
Recently, MintPress News made some astonishing revelations according to which Trump directly threatened the Iraqi prime minister. As MintPress revealed: [Important parts highlighted]
Iraq’s caretaker Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi gave a series of remarks on January 5, during a parliamentary session that received surprisingly little media attention. During the session, which also saw Iraq’s Parliament approve the removal of all foreign (including American) troops from the country, Abdul-Mahdi made a series of claims about the lead-up to…

As neo-nazis head to Richmond, Trump boosts gun-rights rally

by Patrick Martin
On the eve of a planned right-wing gun-rights rally in Richmond, Virginia, fascists and white supremacists are reportedly heading for the Virginia state capitol, hoping to create a “second Charlottesville,” modeled on the neo-Nazi riot in 2017 which killed one anti-fascist demonstrator and attracted the praise of President Donald Trump, who called the fascist marchers “good people.”

Trump signaled his support for the Richmond event, tweeting Friday that the Democratic-controlled state government in Virginia was engaged in violating the Second Amendment rights of the state’s gun owners. “Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia,” he wrote. “That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!”

Trump’s tweet was a gesture of open encouragement to ultra-rightists and neo-Nazis only days before the president’s trial before the US Senate begins, o…

In France’s longest protests since 1968, striking workers continue the fight against neoliberalism

From bus drivers to ballet dancers, workers from across France have taken to the streets in opposition to President Emmanual Macron’s attempts to reshape the country into a U.S.-style neoliberal state.
by Alan Macleod 
Nationwide protests against the government of Emanuel Macron entered their seventh continuous week today in France, as between 187,000 (a government estimate) and 250,000 people (the unions’ count) took to the streets to oppose Macron’s plans to radically alter the country’s pension plan, seen by many as the crown jewel in France’s substantial welfare state.

Led by transport unions, mass protests occurred yesterday across the country, including in Paris, Lyon, Grenoble, Nantes, Dijon and Angers. Meanwhile, in Nice, there was a party atmosphere as activists organized a torchlight evening demonstration. Despite the light-hearted tone some of the protests took, they now constitute the longest and most intense actions against the government since the famous May 1968 “revolut…
