One of the leaders is castigating Scott Stringer as a sexual predator and demanding that his accuser be blindly believed is NYC Mayoral Candidate @mayawiley. But she had a *much* more "nuanced" view of how Tara Reade's accusation against Joe Biden should be evaluated:
What the NYC left has done to Scott Stringer -- denounced and repudiated him as a sexual predator despite no evidence beyond an accusation about 2003 that is extremely dubious -- is grotesque but now illustrative of how left-liberal culture functions:…
To be clear: I don't care about Scott Stringer at all. In fact, he himself has ratified these evidence-free hangings, declaring everyone from Andrew Cuomo to Brett Kavanaugh guilty. He's reaping what he sowed. But it's still a repulsive attribute of the left: guilt assumed.
What the Left is doing here -- and by that I mean @WorkingFamilies, @sunrisemvmtnyc, @JamaalBowmanNY, @JuliaCarmel__ and so many others -- is so blatantly wrong and unethical that I don't see how anyone can tolerate it:…
There is *no evidence* that suggests the accusation from this political lobbyist about what Scott Stringer allegedly did in 2003 is actually true, and ample evidence suggesting that it is false, but it is amazing - and grotesque - that that is irrelevant in left-liberal culture.

Or travel back to 2006 and tell liberals that their favorite pundits and operatives would be David Frum, Bill Kristol, Nicolle Wallace and Rick Wilson; that they'd see the CIA & FBI as noble allies; that George Bush would be popular among Dems; and they'd be honoring Liz Cheney:
During Trump era, liberals aligned - not temporarily but permanently - with anyone and everyone who opposed Trump. The most effective anti-Trump forces weren't liberals but CIA, FBI, Bush officials, Lincoln Project scumbags, and hawkish Dems like Adam Schiff. So they became that.
It's always been true that civil libertarians have no permanent loyalty to a party or faction because any human entity, once it has power, becomes authoritarian. That happened to Dems not only because they acquired power but also they aligned with the most authoritarian entities.

Which cable networks can one go on where one doesn't end up talking to architects of GITMO and the War on Terror? A super-popular MSNBC host was the *Bush/Cheney spokesperson*. CNN & MSNBC have more CIA/NSA/FBI/DoD operatives on their payroll than one finds at Proud Boy meeting.
A huge portion of digital media outlets does nothing but sit in front of their TV taking pictures of what they see. I can't imagine a sadder existence. But it's not my fault that the security state went from clandestinely controlling news outlets to doing it on their payroll.
Hey, Glenn Greenwald, if you really were serious about your condemnations of the War on Terror, you would go on CNN and MSNBC instead. Gotcha! ImageImageImageImage

Corporate News Outlets Again "Confirm" the Same False Story, While Many Refuse to Correct it: my autopsy of the latest corporate media humiliation:…
Journalists with major outlets know they spread a false, now-retracted story about the FBI and Giuliani, but many refuse to remove it, because their real job is disinformation.

The question they won't address: how do they keep "independently confirming" the same falsehoods?
This is an obvious scam — they have not “independently confirmed” anything but rather merely acted as servants to the same lying security state agents who planted the original false story — but they do it over and over.

Remember this humiliation? That's how it was done:

They absolutely should delete those false tweets. Unfortunately, there are dozens of CNN, NBC, MSNBC & WPost reporters and even "disinformation activists" who have left up their false tweets about Giuliani's FBI briefing & refuse to correct or delete it even when asked to.
That's why these self-serving claims from the CNN/MSNBC/NBC/WPost/NBC axis that their false stories are somehow superior to what they call "Fake News" is complete bullshit. The employees of these outlets constantly spread false stories without any accountability.
Just unbelievable and infuriating. Look at this:

Look at what is still up. Remember: these are the only outlets you should trust because they have layers upon layers of careful editorial scrutiny and fact-checking rigor.
Also, compare how viral the original WashPost false story went to how little interest there was in the subsequent retraction (and I'd bet most who spread the retraction weren't the ones who spread the original false story):
Here's one of the countless ex-security state agents who now work for MSNBC, the FBI's Clint Watts (@selectedwisdom), who virally spread this fake news and never bothered to remove it. These are disinformation specialists hired by media outlets.

Guantanamo is still opened, filled with people who have been in cages in the middle of an ocean for *two decades* with no trial and much torture, and its existence has been banished from US discourse with few exceptions.…
Many on the Right and in hawkish liberalism -- not just neocons -- got the War on Terror very wrong and should grapple with & acknowledge it (some have).

So many of today's state assaults on civil liberties domestically grew out of that lawless, authoritarian framework.
Correct. The US left overwhelmingly opposed the Bush/Obama War on Terror's civil liberties assaults, but (with its current liberal allies) are increasingly supportive of many of its repressive weapons in the name of fighting the new domestic Terror War:
