Who is protesting and why?

The protestors want civil rights through peaceful protest. Party crashers from multiple sides cannot be labeled as one.

These guys are NOT here for #BlackLivesMatter

Trump blames the media and far-left, but that doesn’t make sense.

Remember the radicalized US military MAGA member who was caught plotting in March to blow up the media and kill Dem. leaders?
March was like B.C., so it’s hard to remember.

This is your daily pension update: Not about pensions....but I can't resist...COVID gets thousands of educational workers laid off across AB but not UCP staffers! #ABLeg #doublestandard #looksrealbad

The irony of the UCP going to Trudeau for monetary handouts to keep there employees shit tweeting him is too rich to ignore.

Speaking of irony, how about that #yyccbe audit report? #ABLeg
The only financial mismanagement was a Gordon Dirks/Gene Zwosdesky decision from years ago. To be fair, there is some good things in it like bus cost rationalization and getting a board coach, but I suspect getting rid of the UCP candidate board member improved things. #ABLeg

Part of the on-going campaign by #CCP, #HK govt & their allies to muzzle RTHK & to censor satire as a form of expression. All they will countenance is Carrie Lam’s Orwellian ‘Truth About Hong Kong’. Now more than ever we have to speak up for free speech & a free press.
#HK govt has now followed up on Communications Authority censure of RTHK with a demand for a full review & apology. This is entirely out of order & full-on censorship. #SupportRTHK #FreePress news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/compon…
RTHK has said it accepts the Communications Authority censure & it will suspend the censured program ‘Headliners’ at the end of the current season. This looks to be RTHK caving in to government censorship. Must await details for the full picture.

#Fact Congress is all for #FreePress so long as #media sucks up to Nehru Dynasty and attacks opponents of 'Family'. Moment 'Family' is attacked, the mask of #tolerance and #FreeSpeech is dropped, fangs are bared. #LeftLiberals scurry to defend the indefensible: the Dynasty. 1/n
I've faced the ire of the Nehru Dynasty on 4 occasions. On the second occasion I lost my job, and along with that my company leased flat and phone. Those days there was little money left in the kitty to see you through bad days. Child in tow, we were literally on the street. 2/n
We those who refused to toe the line of least resistance and matha theko at the altar of Nehru Dynasty have survived and can look back with pride. But where is the 'Family' today? The concerted, coordinated attack on Arnab Goswami @republic to intimidate him will not work. 3/n

A THREAD

There's been a meme around for a long time that goes like this:

"First they came for the journalists. We don't know what happened after that."
Of course, it was obvious to all those who looked with open eyes that #JulianAssange was the canary in the #FreePress coal mine.

Or was, perhaps, Alexander Pope's butterfly - broken on a (Catherine) wheel. [From Pope's "Epistle to Dr Arbuthnot"]
Some journalists argued that Julian #Assange was "not a journalist" - maybe that made them feel safer.

Most just looked away - maybe after a carefully crafted sentence at a state-sponsored, glittery #FreePress event (where news platforms like #RT were shut out in the cold).

I can't stop laughing about Stephanie Grisham's 'demand' for a retraction from Vanity Fair bc they described Trump as being in 'total meltdown'-it's true, & part of the reason we know this is bc Grisham's office leaks like a sieve. #FreePress #WednesdayWisdom
And here's the Vanity Fair pc that Trump so desperately doesn't want anyone to read that he's hate tweeting at them instead of doing something about #COVID19 which WHO are now calling a pandemic.

Defence lawyer Edward Fitzgerald: The extradition is for political purposes and that’s prohibited under US/UK treaty.

Defence lawyer Edward Fitzgerald: This prosecution is not about criminal justice, it is due to underlying political motives of the US government.
Extraditing #Assange would also lead to "inhuman and degrading treatment," in the US prison system, his counsel tells the court, says mental condition could put him at risk of suicide.

US government policy is decided by the Neoliberal Globalist Oligarchy.

The main components of this control are the CFR, Bilderberg Group, RIIA, & the Trilateral Commission.

All of these groups are funded by Big Banks, Multinational Corporations & Oligarchs.

The media is controlled by a system of Oligarch & Corporate ownership who plant Editors, Producers, "Opinion Writers" & "Journalists" within each significant "news" organization to control the narrative.

It's important to speak out forcefully about the restrictive rules being imposed on the Capitol Hill press corps for the pending Impeachment trial. Big secrecy happening. This is a huge moment in American history, & the American people are getting shut out. #WednesdayWisdom

Corporate Tool Keir Starmer is the absolute enemy of every decent & honest Brit & the enemy of every European.

#ElectionResults2019 were not a surprise.

I predicted a Tory majority of 30 to 40 before the election.

The size of the Tory majority is a surprise & reflects Labour's disastrous policy of cancelling #Brexit

Jo Swinson's LibDems Nazi Party got hammered she lost her seat 🤣🤣🤣
We now get #BRINO with Boris.

Boris's deal is Lipstick on the Pig of Theresa May's disastrous & Treasonous non-exit "WithDrawal Agreement."

We remain Slaves, paying £16bn a year, to be under the total control of the EU & all current & future regulations
#ElectionResults2019
We now get total farce of Boris "negotiating" a Trade Deal for a year.

EU have got us right where they want us.
Paying £16bn a year to be Slaves under total EU control.

1/5 Donald Trump, aka John Barron, aka David Dennison, is telling us "do not believe any article or story you read or see that uses “anonymous sources” having to do with trade or any other subject."

This is more than an attack on the #FreePress.

#GeeksResist #DemCast #OneVoice1
2/5 It is an attack on facts.

On reality.

And on the #whistleblower.

Trump famously spreads disinformation with phrases like "people are saying", invoking phantom polls and friends and "everybody knows" when he wants to lie.

So he has no problem with "anonymous sources."
3/5 His problem is when others use REAL anonymous sources, like the #FreePress, law enforcement, or Congress, for all of whom these sources are vital to preserving our Democratic liberties by obtaining information people would otherwise not share for fear of reprisal or censure.

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.

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.

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.
