WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Catch up with the latest stories from @MintPressNews that the #MSM was too afraid to cover, like the alarming SWAT-style arrest of government critic and journalist @MaxBlumenthal, in the Trump administration's escalating war on #FreePress. mintpressnews.com/arrest-journal…
@MaxBlumenthal Rather than do its job, part of which is to keep governments in check through watchdog journalism, Western media has failed its own, abandoned the public, and allowed itself to become an arm of US imperialism through propaganda and media blackouts.
Whether it's the shocking political arrest of fellow journalists like Blumenthal or #Assange, or anti-government protests around the the world, #MSM news coverage is dictated by foreign policy and whether or not sitting governments (or journalists) are considered U.S. allies.

War On WikiLeaks: The US government is openly manipulating the judicial proceedings in #Assange's extradition case while Belmarsh prison continues to violate his human rights by denying him the ability to prepare his defense. @WikiLeaks #FreeAssange
@wikileaks During a hearing this past Monday, a UK judge denied Julian #Assange’s request to delay his extradition trial by 3 months.
He is accused of conspiring with Chelsea Manning to obtain and publish government documents and is being persecuted for exposing US war crimes, US torture, and embarrassing state secrets.

Change My Mind: It is the American Mainstream Media's job to sow chaos, hate and division across ordinary Americans, so the Corporate Elites and the top 1% stay in power.

Edward Snowden
It wasn't just a story
It was knowledge of the future
A future that is now

Julian Assange's extradition hearing was a show trial in a Kangaroo Court, presided over by a corrupt Judge who clearly wants #FreePress destroyed to bring in 1984.

They are not spying on you to keep you safe

They are spying on you for Social & Political Control

If you upset the gov in any way, you will become a "Person of Interest".
The Surveillance Dossier on you will then be used to persecute, blackmail or incarcerate you

THREAD:
To punish China we've taxed ourselves and bankrupted our farms.

To make us wealthier, we've cut food stamps and health care for the poorest among us.

To make us safer we've abandoned our allies, released hundreds of terrorists, and bombed our own bases.

To afford to run the richest country on earth, we are borrowing a trillion dollars this year.

To lower unemployment, we've halved taxes on corporations and billionaires, and refuse to require a living wage.

2/
To fix immigration, we've closed the border, attempted to stop accepting asylum claims, and shut down our own government three times.

To prevent foreign interference in our elections, we've made diplomacy contingent on foreign interference in our elections.

I always find it strange and somewhat inconsistent when Trump supporters talk about the sanctity of the constitution, our founding fathers, and the formation of our country. Our founding fathers believed in a free press. Donald Trump does not.
Before we declared independence from Great Britain, the British government attempted to censor American media by prohibiting newspapers from publishing unfavorable information and opinions. This was deeply disturbing to our founding fathers. A few quotes:
“Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government: When this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved,” - Benjamin Franklin

If you missed SNL's Weekend Update last night, watch it. The political riff was so funny that I watched it twice. Not posting the You Tube vid bc of the Epoch Times ad saying that #FreePress are not real news. But watch the show. Was GREAT. #SundayThoughts
Here are a couple of the jokes, courtesy of NYT: "“Giuliani’s two associates are also very successful entrepreneurs. Igor, the handsome one, owns a club in Ukraine that’s called Mafia Rave, which I think counts as a full confession.” — Colin Jost
“First of all, bravo to the casting agency that found these two thumb breakers. They look like they use vodka as cologne. These guys have definitely worn track suits to their daughter’s wedding.." -Michael Che.
Watch the SNL Weekend update from last night. It was hysterical!

Wow.. and just coincidentally Barr and Murdoch had a private meeting at Murdoch's NYC house on Monday night???
Where is the #FreePress? Where is my Country's backbone?
I can't wait to find out what Smith says after he's out of there.

3-Yet in his statement Smith said: “Recently I asked the company to allow me to leave Fox News and begin a new chapter. After requesting that I stay, they graciously obliged. The opportunities afforded this guy from small town Mississippi have been many.

SPECIAL ANALYSIS: Working directly with Ecuador, the US govt spied on #Assange 24 hours a day via an illegal livestream surveillance operation set up by a private security firm and approved by Ecuador’s president. @jimmysllama @WikiLeaks @CourageFound mintpressnews.com/us-complicit-j…
@jimmysllama @wikileaks @couragefound Spain’s High Court is currently investigating security firm UC Global for what has been exposed as a mind-blowing, complex, and invasive surveillance operation set up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in order to monitor #Assange’s every move
@jimmysllama @wikileaks @couragefound After being hired by Ecuador’s intel agency, Senain, UC Global bugged virtually everything in the embassy including the women’s bathroom. UC's founder David Morales also admits to passing docs, vids, and audios of meetings #Assange held at the embassy to the CIA.

SPECIAL ANALYSIS: “There is an unquestionable contradiction between #Snowden’s opposition to Assange’s arrest and the rhetorical games he plays with #Assange’s character in his memoir, "Permanent Record," by Patrick Anderson. A thread: mintpressnews.com/edward-snowden…
On the one hand, both #Assange and #Snowden are perceived as dangerous enemies by the US government but on the other, they clearly disagree when it comes to the means of achieving government transparency and accountability.
In his book, #Snowden appears willing to use #Assange for personal gain, deliberately distorting the truth and perpetuating the imperialistic propaganda that threatens not only Assange’s health but also his very life.

1/16 It has begun. The GOP is spinning that the sole transcript Trump says he will release is more important than the #WhistleblowerComplaint as a tactic to insist everything should ride on this one supposed piece of evidence.

#ImpeachTrump #ImpeachmentParty #UkraineTranscript
2/16 All reports indicate this was a months-long conspiracy Trump and Giuliani were engaged in, subverting & bypassing officials who tried to stop them.

A single call does not BEGIN to give an accurate depiction of the events that lead up to this. washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
3/16 And Trump already has a shady history with releasing information.

Forget the obvious like his tax returns, school grades, and secret meetings with Putin.

Actually, a reminder of those secret meetings:

Now we've destroyed your country you can pay us to rebuild it.
We accept Natural Resources like oil & drugs as payment.

Democracy - meh!
We don't give a fuck about about Democracy - its all about MONEY & Corporate Profits.
#TalkLikeAPirateDay

Let's invade other countries and bomb the shit out of them.
Then we can grow and transport the drugs back to good 'ol USA and Europe.

CIA and the Arms Companies will make $bn's!
#TalkLikeAPirateDay

So the ultimate aim is to chip everyone to completely control them.

To do that we need to scare the shit out of them by starting lots of Wars, recruit lots of terrorists, & scaremonger about future famines & crop failures.

We'll make TRILLIONS.

"The Epoch Times seeks to restore honest journalism, the purpose of a free press."

Wall Street Journal @WSJ publishes op-ed by @EpochTimes publisher Stephen Gregory in response to misleading @NBCNews and @MSNBC attacks. (Thread 👇) wsj.com/articles/nbc-n…
@WSJ @NBCNews @MSNBC The #EpochTimes is a nonpartisan, independent media company that publishes a daily newspaper and website. Our motto is “Truth and Tradition.”

Last week #NBCNews and its sister network #MSNBC launched a series of irresponsible and misleading attacks on us.
The network led with the claim that we have spent “more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself” in the past 6 months on “pro-Trump advertisements.”

NBC refers to ads promoting our print subscriptions—typically short, lively videos featuring recent articles.

“Journalism is not a crime”

So why is @Wikileaks’ Julian Assange jailed in a maximum security prison, in which people such as Abu Qatada have been imprisoned in? 🙃

Every morning before I leave for work, my brother watches #KakaakiSocial on AIT, basically the way they bring in social media content with no objectivity to lashes on govt or people that are not on the same page with them👇

I know we are sentimental when it comes to politics,religion,nd ethnicity.its apparent that there is no media house in Nigeria that is not compromised.yet,they stil have their ways of balancing their news stories to escape NBC sanction.#PressFreedom #AITUnderSiege
#FreePress
For so many occasions,kakaaki social aired unfactual tweets and viral contents,quoting opinion as a reliable source of news reportage.
I so much wonder how the producer totally disregards the stand of the constitution and it regulator NBC.

Matthew Hoh told #Unity4J shortly before #Assange's arrest:

“When they get their hands on him, they will do things that will be criminal, it will be immoral, it will be torture.” #FreeAssange

consortiumnews.com/2019/04/15/jul…
Prior to #Assange's arrest, Chris Hedges also told #Unity4J

"Everyone has a breaking point, and they will attempt to psychologically destroy him, and we have seen with #Guantanamo that several of these detainees, are emotionally crippled for life. It will be scientific torture."
Hedges added: "I used to cover the Stasi state in East Germany, and the joke in the Stasi state was that the Gestapo broke bones and the Stasi break minds, and that’s what they’ll do. That’s what will happen."

1.Think about the ramifications of the #Assange espionage indictment. He is a publisher who obtained whistle-blower documents that showed criminal conduct involving the most serious of issues: war. He published those documents. Now imagine, every journalist (including myself)
2. Who associated with #Assange at that time or obtained related documents is now seen as part of an act of espionage, rather than the protected act of exposing government corruption (journalism).
3. Now imagine too that journalists who want to expose lies leading up to future wars (cough, Iran) could face espionage charges for doing so. This is a warning to all of us to back off the military-industrial-complex because they need their wars. This is a direct attack on...
