Dear Judges on Social Media: Don’t Forget the Fundamentals of a Fair Trial – Consortiumnews – Greg Barns and Lisanne Adam

On Thursday this week WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will face a London court. This hearing relates to the request by the United States to extradite Assange to that country to face a computer hacking charge carrying a maximum penalty of five years. No doubt social media will be alive with commentary, support, abuse and everything in between concerning Assange’s plight.

When, after almost seven years, on April 11, 2019, Assange was arrested on Ecuadorian soil and taken into custody by U.K. police, social media exploded with the pro- and anti-Assange forces countering each other, and there has been a deluge of commentary about WikiLeaks and Assange the man. But much of what passes for comment about Assange on social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook ignores some fundamental issues and facts about this extraordinary case. It is important to restate them in the hope, vain though it may be, that social media comment about Assange and WikiLeaks is at least well informed and deals with what is actually at stake in his case.

More New ‘AIPACs’ Popping Up – American Free Press – Philip Giraldi

April 30, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

New organizations dedicated to “defending” Israel are proliferating due to concerns that the American people are finally waking up to the fact that they have been getting ripped off by a vast Zionist conspiracy for the past 70-plus years. Ironically, while it has become possible to criticize Israel even in the mainstream media, the United States government itself has become more firmly in the grasp of the Israel lobby, most recently manifested in bills passed by Congress pledging undying love and affection for war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu and all his works. This has been due in large part to the effective lobbying by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which met in Washington in March and drew 18,000 of its supporters to both show up and lobby their congressmen.

The congressional love affair with Israel has been accompanied by billions of dollars in U.S. taxpayer-provided Danegeld per annum plus a de facto commitment to send American soldiers to fight and die for Israel even if Netanyahu starts a war for no reason whatsoever.

Biden Plays the Race Card | Patrick J. Buchanan – Official Website

With the economy firing on all eight cylinders, and the drive for impeachment losing steam, a new strategy is emerging — to take Trump down by stuffing him in a box with white supremacists.

As he debated with himself whether to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination, Joe Biden knew he had a problem.

As a senator from Delaware in the ’70s, he had bashed busing to achieve racial balance in public schools as stupid and racist.

Let’s be real – John Kaminski

Lying is as old as humanity itself. We all tell ourselves the biggest lie of all, but most don’t remember it until our final moments close in.

So much military mayhem over the centuries has been blamed on religious differences, but wars are always about material gain and blaming creeds for them is simply a clever way of covering up crimes being committed under the rubric of some pretentiously noble but invariably criminal rationalization.

Two of America’s longest wars, Iraq and Afghanistan, provide us perfect examples of this — Iraq for its oil and Afghanistan for its drugs, the two main commodities that keep the Deep State in power.

NRA Leadership Infighting

April 30, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

The present National Rifle Association dust-up between Wayne LaPierre and Oliver North has many supporters of the pro gun organization concerned. For the casual observer, the underlying dispute does not appear on the radar screen. The persona of Wayne LaPierre has been a NRA fixture for decades, while Oliver North bears the baggage of the surreptitious Iran–Contra affair. Just maybe, the NRA is in need of new blood to defend the second amendment and explain that a well armed citizenry is essential to achieve a free society. While there are several advocate groups that champion individual possession of fire arms, the NRA maintains a high public profile.
