The establishment tools have recently eliminated a very promising progressive - here is how they did it

globinfo freexchange
In the following video, Kyle Kulinski describes how he schooled Fox tools on progressive policies. The debate was set up on the occasion of another 'interview' (4:18 - 5:22 in the video) in which Cori Bush appeared to be quite unprepared to deal with Fox’s aggressive style. Unfortunately, shortly after this ugly attack, Cori Bush, a very promising progressive, lost in primaries, and 'surprisingly', most of the establishment media (both liberal and conservative), indirectly welcomed the result with a kind of relief.


Many progressives reacted with a kind of embarrassment on Cori Bush's response, yet in reality she did nothing wrong. It was certain tactics by the Fox tool that made Bush appear unreliable, and in this case, these tactics were (unfortunately) successful.
Examine again the video.
First of all, the Fox tool literally invaded in the place and started aggressively asking questions to Cori Bush about that tax issue. The tactic is very common…

Almost hilarious: Fox anti-socialist propaganda makes classic McCarthyism appear quite sophisticated

Facebook now targeting left wing pages as predicted

The establishment machine immediately spread the news loudly about the Infowars banning, in order to persuade the public that it makes no exceptions, and therefore, to highlight both the alt-right and the leftist independent media as 'fake news'. Yet, the machine boosted Alex Jones' popularity at the same time it has started a covert censorship operation against the leftist independent media, which are less known to the public. This clearly shows who are the establishment's secret collaborators and who the establishment considers to be the real threat.

CIA insider reveals one of the agency's various sabotage operations to turn Cubans against Fidel Castro, was to make school milk undrinkable!

globinfo freexchange
Sibel Edmonds speaks with the former CIA operative, Verne Lyon, who was involved in Operation Chaos, in addition to covert operations in Cuba. Lyon gives details about one of CIA's numerous sabotage strategies, which was actually to make milk in Cuban schools undrinkable!
As Lyon explains:
After the October crisis - October of 1962 - President Kennedy pulled off a naval blockade around Cuba and told the Soviets to remove their nuclear weapons that could attack the United States. And in exchange, he said he would remove our missiles from Turkey and we would never again invade Cuba like we did in 1961 at the bay of pigs.
Since the CIA could no longer operate and implement an invasion program to retake the island, their objectives and their goals then turn to causing dissension in the island.
There were rotating blackouts for three hours a day. They were scheduled. In fact, on the radio, every morning in Habana, they would say that the lights would go out in Vedado b…

The 'prophecy' of Owen Jones about Jeremy Corbyn

          If Jeremy Corbyn wins the Labour leadership, he will come under attack from the media establishment, the Tories and much of his own party. That's because he presents a dangerous threat to the post-Thatcher political consensus.

Why the rapidly escalating and most disgusting propaganda against Jeremy Corbyn is actually a good sign

Three fundamental components of the neoliberal ideology

failed evolution
Radical individualism
The apotheosis of individual almost destroyed concepts like collectivity and solidarity, especially in Western societies.
Economic cynicism
Everything, even human life, is ultimately translated in terms of economic value in the most cynical way.
Uninterrupted consumerism
People frequently define themselves through their consumption habits and preferences. As the dominant culture dictates a situation of continuous evaluation and all kinds of cruel competition among individuals, people usually end up in a situation of uninterrupted consumerism.

Meet the mystery fixer who negotiated Syria out of seven years of war

How a nearly unknown businessman named Khaled al Ahmad became Damascus’ secret liaison to the West and quietly dealt Syria’s grinding war to a close
by Rania Khalek
Part 6 - “The problem wasn’t the protests, it was sectarianism”
The important thing about Hammeh is how organic the reconciliation process was, with locals working hard to repair the area’s social fabric through local initiatives spearheaded by young people in Hammeh, such as the children’s festival organized between Hammeh and Jebel Wurud.
The first thing Temkeen did after the reconciliation went into effect was purchase a building in Hammeh, which they turned into a non-profit educational institution called Steps Education Center to help fill the gaps in schooling for kids who couldn’t attend classes during the fighting as well as job training for adults in software development, programing, website development, IT, electrical engineering and cooking. They also hope to use these educational initiatives to undo the damage from…

Why the rapidly escalating and most disgusting propaganda against Jeremy Corbyn is actually a good sign

failed evolution
In the UK front, the liberal establishment machine is escalating its propaganda campaign against Jeremy Corbyn through that 'anti-Semitic' smearing. In reality, his only 'crime', of course, is that he is too lefty for the totally-occupied-by-neoliberalism Britain.
After the collapse of that ridiculous Skripal case - that ended to an embarrassing fiasco for the Western clowns - the establishment machine in the UK gave up its campaign to smear Jeremy Corbyn as a Russian stooge.
The new 'brilliant strategy' of the establishment tools is simply to paint Jeremy Corbyn as 'anti-Semite'. Which is actually the permanent smearing by the mainstream media and the liberal political center - many have been bought by the Israeli lobby- against anyone who has the ‘audacity’ to condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinians.
The logical leap in this case is literally ridiculous: if you condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinians, immediately means tha…

Brazil: thousands march to support Lula's candidacy

Workers' Party president Gleisi Hoffmann has said any move to disqualify Lula is anti-democratic and would impede Brazil's stabilization.
Participants in the Free Lula March, which journeyed for over 50 kilometers, arrived in the Brasilia, Brazil's capital city Tuesday. The participants will take part in a series of marches at the Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) to support former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's presidential candidacy and to demand his freedom.
Tuesday marked the fourth day of the over five thousand person-strong protest, which includes members of the Rural Landless Workers Movement (MST) and several other groups. The protesters have planned to camp outside the TSE, which will hear a case supporting Lula's candidacy on August 15th, at 16:00.
Workers Party (PT), president Gleisi Hoffmann, has said any move to disqualify Lula is anti-democratic and would impede Brazil's stabilization. She said the PT will fight "until the end" to ensur…

For second time this year, Facebook suspends left-leaning TeleSUR English without explanation

"It seems like the censorship power many people on the left want Silicon Valley executives to unilaterally exercise might end up being wielded against the left. One good way to know that would happen is that is already is happening."
For the second time this year, Facebook has suspended teleSUR English's page, claiming the left-leaning Latin American news network violated the social media platform's terms of service without any further explanation—a move that provoked outrage and concern among journalists, free speech advocates, and Big Tech critics.
In a short article posted on teleSUR's website on Monday, the regional news network—which is based in Venezuela but also has received funding from Argentina, Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador, and Nicaragua—explained: “teleSUR English's page has been removed from Facebook for the second time this year without any specific reason being provided. It should be noted that the first time this occurred back in January 2018, Faceboo…

To BBC στον πόλεμο εναντίον του Κόρμπιν με πρόσχημα τον «αντισημιτισμό»

Με ρεπορτάζ που δεν πληρούν κανέναν από τους κανόνες αντικειμενικής δημοσιογραφίας του σταθμού, το BBC επιτίθεται στον ηγέτη του Εργατικού κόμματος Τζέρεμι Κόρμπιν, προωθώντας τις κατηγορίες περί αντισημιτισμού που εξαπολύουν πολιτικοί του αντίπαλοι και η ίδια η κυβέρνηση του Ισραήλ.
Σε πρόσφατο τρέιλερ ενός ρεπορτάζ που ανέβασε στο Ίντερνετ, το BBC παρουσιάζει αποκλειστικά δηλώσεις μελών της εβραϊκής κοινότητας του Μάντσεστερ που ασκούν σκληρή κριτική στο εργατικό κόμμα, χωρίς όμως να παρουσιάζουν κανένα στοιχείο.
Ανάμεσα σε άλλα σχόλια που ακούγονται στο τρέιλερ (και δεν έχουν καμία σχέση με τη στάση των Εργατικών), μια γυναίκα περιγράφει ότι λαμβάνει μηνύματα που λένε «κρίμα που δεν σας σκότωσαν όλους στους θαλάμους αερίων».
Στο ίδιο το ρεπορτάζ, διάρκειας περίπου οκτώ λεπτών η συντριπτική πλειονότητα όσων συμμετέχουν συμφωνούν ότι υπάρχει πρόβλημα στο εργατικό κόμμα, χωρίς και πάλι να παρουσιάζουν κανένα στοιχείο πέρα από την κριτική που ασκούν ορισμένα από τα στελέχη του στο Ισραήλ.

Workers and youth in UK speak out against continued persecution of Julian Assange

August 16 will mark six years to the day since WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange was granted political asylum by the Ecuadorian government, after seeking refuge in Ecuador’s London Embassy on June 19, 2012.
In recent months, Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno, who is seeking closer relations with Washington and US investment, has stepped up moves to remove Assange from Ecuador’s Embassy in London. In a tweet and television interview August 6, Moreno declared he will “take measures” against Assange unless he stops “intervening” in the politics and affairs of countries.
Were Assange to be forced out, he faces immediate arrest by the British police and imprisonment on minor bail infringement charges relating to a case dropped by the Swedish authorities over a year ago. Assange fears that if detained by the British authorities, he will be extradited to the US by the Trump administration.
These moves are aimed at denying free speech to Assange and WikiLeaks, who over the last decade have exposed…

US provided “intelligence” and bomb used in massacre of Yemeni schoolchildren

The involvement of U.S. military intelligence in “fine-tuning” the targets of coalition airstrikes is likely the main factor explaining why the U.S. government has refused to condemn the strike and has refused to support an independent investigation into the atrocity.
by Whitney Webb
Last Thursday’s horrific bombing of a bus full of school children in northern Yemen was carried out using a weapon sold to the Saudi Arabia-led coalition by the United States, photo evidence of the bomb site has revealed.
The photos taken at the scene by Ahmed AbdulKareem for MintPress News and by other local journalists indicate that a Mark 82 (MK-82) bomb, jointly manufactured by U.S. weapons companies Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics, had been used in the attack.
The attack killed at least 50 and wounded over 60 others, the vast majority of whom were young children. Despite the fact that those targeted were civilians and mostly children, the Saudi-led coalition defended the strike, calling it a “legit…

Google records your location even when you tell it not to

Some services on Android and iPhone automatically stores your movements even after you pause the ‘location history’ setting
Google wants to know where you go so badly that it records your movements even when you explicitly tell it not to.
An Associated Press investigation found that many Google services on Android devices and iPhones store your location data even if you've used a privacy setting that says it will prevent Google from doing so.
Computer science researchers at Princeton confirmed these findings at the AP's request.
For the most part, Google is upfront about asking permission to use your location information. An app like Google Maps will remind you to allow access to location if you use it for navigating. If you agree to let it record your location over time, Google Maps will display that history for you in a “timeline” that maps out your daily movements.
Storing your minute-by-minute travels carries privacy risks and has been used by police to determine the location o…

Η Google καταγράφει την τοποθεσία μας ακόμη και όταν το απαγορεύουμε

Έρευνα του Associated Press αποκάλυψε ότι υπηρεσίες της Google για Android και iPhone συνεχίζουν να καταγράφουν τις κινήσεις μας ακόμη και αν έχουμε ζητήσει ρητά να μην το κάνουν, μέσω των σχετικών ρυθμίσεων.
Ερευνητές στο πανεπιστήμιο του Πρίνστον επιβεβαίωσαν το συμπέρασμα για λογαριασμό του AP.
Παρά το γεγονός ότι οι εφαρμογές της Google ζητούν άδεια για να καταγράψουν τη θέση μας και θεωρητικά μας επιτρέπουν να σβήσουμε τα ίχνη μας, κλείνοντας την επιλογή Location History, στην πραγματικότητα συνεχίζουν να καταγράφουν ορισμένα στοιχεία για τη θέση μας.
Παραδείγματός χάριν η Google αποθηκεύει το που βρισκόμαστε κάθε φορά που ανοίγουμε την εφαρμογή για τους χάρτες στο κινητό μας. Το ίδιο συμβαίνει και με τις αυτόματες ανανεώσεις για τον Καιρό που προσφέρει στα Android αλλά και με πολλές ακόμη εφαρμογές που αποθηκεύουν την τοποθεσία μας στο λογαριασμό μας της Google.
Απαντώντας στην αποκάλυψη του AP η Google ανέφερε ότι «υπάρχουν πολλοί τρόποι με τους οποίους η εταιρεία μπορεί να χρησιμο…

UPS pays out $700 million to stockholders: An object lesson in the operation of capitalism

On Thursday, the US-based logistics and delivery company UPS announced a quarterly dividend payout to shareholders of more than $700 million for the three months to August 2018. The announcement came the very same day as the Teamsters union met in Chicago, Illinois to endorse new contracts for UPS workers that enforce poverty-level wages and introduce major new concessions.
UPS’s dividend payout is an object lesson in the basic functioning of capitalism. Where does this $700 million come from? It did not, after all, arise out of thin air. It is extracted from the labor of hundreds of thousands of workers, in the US and internationally. It is part of the surplus value produced by these workers—the difference between the wages they earn by selling their labor power, barely enough to survive, and the value they add in the process of production and distribution.
The beneficiaries of this process of exploitation are not only the corporate executives that run UPS, but the major institutional …

Meet the mystery fixer who negotiated Syria out of seven years of war

How a nearly unknown businessman named Khaled al Ahmad became Damascus’ secret liaison to the West and quietly dealt Syria’s grinding war to a close
by Rania Khalek
Part 5 - Life returns to normal
I caught a glimpse of the consequences of al Ahmad’s efforts last summer when I visited several areas in Syria that have reconciled with the government.
One of the most genuine reconciliations to take place was in Hammeh, a Sunni suburb of Damascus formerly under rebel control. Then there was Qudsaya, also an outlying area Damascus that had been controlled by the armed opposition. These suburban areas were the first to be fully normalized, meaning the siege was totally removed and a free flow of goods and people were allowed. They were also freed from unregulated militias and their weapons. In a deal organized by the then-head of the National Defense Forces in Damascus, Fadi Saqr, the opposition was given a choice to stay and receive an amnesty that guaranteed that none of the security agencie…

While you've been occupied with that Infowars-banning story, the establishment machine already started a covert censorship operation against leftist independent media

globinfo freexchange
Developments are coming like storm. Just when the prediction that Infowars banning will actually strengthen Alex Jones' popularity became true, it seems that our second 'prophecy' (and prediction by many progressives), also becomes true. According to this, Infowars banning will be used as a blueprint by the establishment machine to shutdown progressive independent media and voices, based on that 'fake news' narrative.
We wrote that a corporate branch of the liberal establishment gave real value to Alex Jones' awful performance, pretending to be the 'anti-establishment' hero - just like Donald Trump - and made him a real hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience that has been brainwashed by his absurd conspiracy theories.
Max Blumenthal speaks with Aaron Mate and gives details about Alex Jones' dark role in the whole story:
Alex Jones has always served establishment priorities. First, by taking the 9/11 truth movement, whi…
