Evidence that the US imperialists were pre-planning to arm and train the neo-nazis in Ukraine

globinfo freexchange   There is plenty of evidence that the Western imperialists and their European allies supported neo-nazi groups in Ukraine during the 2014 "Maidan revolution", which led to the ousting of elected President Viktor Yanukovych, and the overthrow of the Ukrainian government.   Protests originally erupted in November 2013 after President Yanukovych refused to sign a political association and free trade agreement with the European Union at a meeting of the Eastern Partnership in Vilnius, Lithuania, choosing closer ties with Russia instead.  The support of Ukrainian neo-nazis by the US imperialists continued further during the Obama term. For example, as the World Socialist Web Site reported on early 2016:   The 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act, signed into law by US President Barack Obama late last year, did not include a previously expected ban against the funding of the Azov Regiment, a military organization that originated as a volunteer militia

Found in Translation: New York Times Says Democrats Shouldn't Challenge Oligarchy

by Norman Solomon,  Jeff Cohen   The powerful newspaper's editorial board makes clear it likes to editorialize about social justice, but certainly doesn't want any structural changes or substantial new government policies that could bring it much closer.   A few days after the Nov. 2 election, the New York Times published a vehement editorial calling for the Democratic Party to adopt “ moderate ” positions and avoid seeking “ progressive policies at the expense of bipartisan ideas. ” It was a statement by the Times editorial board, which the newspaper describes as “ a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate and certain longstanding values .” The editorial certainly reflected “longstanding values”—since the Times has recycled them for decades in its relentless attacks on the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. The Times editorial board began its polemic by calling for the party to “ return ” to “ moderate policies. ”     Tr

Ex-UN independent expert Alfred De Zayas slams US, NATO regime-change wars and use of sanctions

Going Underground   Prof. Alfred De Zayas, a former UN Independent Expert and author of ‘Building a Just World Order’, discusses the distrust from some of the global public of the United Nations, Britain’s ignoring of UN Rapporteur Nils Melzer’s report that Julian Assange is being tortured and his call for him to be freed, his work in Venezuela investigating human rights abuses and how the Venezuelan government cooperated with his requests, the US and NATO allies use of ‘humanitarian interventions’ to pursue regime change in countries like Libya and the use of unilateral sanctions which have a devastating humanitarian impact, the public being lied to by mainstream media outlets and much more.

Day 961: Julian Assange still in prison

failed evolution   World's number one political prisoner, Julian Assange, still in high security prison for exposing horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   The only thing that stands between the ruthless imperialists and their plans to exterminate Julian Assange are the thousands of people protesting against his extradition to the US. Among them, famous names from the global political, economic, academic, intellectual and arts sectors.   More and more people should join the fight until full drop of charges against Julian Assange and his release.   So, until then, we should make sure that the clear message will reach the power centers of the worst liberal establishment ever: if you commit another big crime by assassinating Julian

New files expose Australian govt’s betrayal of Julian Assange and detail his prison torment

Documents provided exclusively to The Grayzone detail Canberra’s abandonment of Julian Assange, an Australian citizen, and provide shocking details of his prison suffering by Kit Klarenberg Part 2 - On knowledge of CIA plot against Assange, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs issues snide non-denial denial   In the wake of Yahoo News’ startling September revelations of CIA plans to surveil, kidnap, and even kill WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, which confirmed and built upon a May 2020 exposé by The Grayzone ’s Max Blumenthal, officials in the NATO-oriented ‘Five Eyes’ global spying network struggled to get their stories straight. William Evanina, Washington’s top counterintelligence officer until his retirement in early 2021, told Yahoo the Five Eyes alliance was “ critical ” to Langley’s dastardly plot, and “ we were very confident ” that Julian’s potential escape from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London could be prevented, by hook or by crook. When asked whether the US had ever

The Facebook team that tried to swing Nicaragua’s election is full of US spies

A tacit agreement between the government and Facebook appears to have been made: you can keep the profits, but we control the message. As such, a cynic might wonder what functional difference there is between Facebook and the national security state. by Alan Macleod  Part 3 - Silicon Valley: tip of US imperial spear It might be unfair, however, to single Facebook out. Other large platforms are similarly stocked with government plants. Reddit’s Director of Policy, for instance, was formerly a Deputy Director of The Atlantic Council’s Middle East Task Force. Meanwhile, a senior Twitter executive is also an active duty officer in the British Army’s psychological warfare and online propaganda brigade. Silicon Valley has not only made their peace with this relationship; they actively court it. “ What Lockheed Martin was to the twentieth century, technology and cyber-security companies will be to the twenty-first, ” wrote Google executives Eric Schmidt and Larry Cohen in their book, “The New

The most important battle for Press Freedom in our time

If he is extradited and found guilty of publishing classified material it will set a legal precedent that will effectively end national security reporting.   by Chris Hedges  Part 4 - There is no legal basis to hold Assange in prison, try an Australian citizen under the US Espionage Act Tyrannies invert the rule of law. They turn the law into an instrument of injustice. They cloak their crimes in a faux legality. They use the decorum of the courts and trials, to mask their criminality. Those, such as Assange, who expose that criminality to the public are dangerous, for without the pretext of legitimacy the tyranny loses credibility and has nothing left in its arsenal but fear, coercion and violence. The long campaign against Assange and WikiLeaks is a window into the collapse of the rule of law, the rise of what the political philosopher Sheldon Wolin calls our system of inverted totalitarianism, a form of totalitarianism that maintains the fictions of the old capitalist democracy, inc
