Before Russia's invasion and since, Zelensky has abolished basic liberties: shuttered opposition media, outlawed parties, imprisoned dissidents.

As Ukraine demands money and arms from the West, they now want to export this repression to our countries with McCarthyite blacklists:
You can see the full Ukrainian blacklist, obtained by @unherd. Beyond the individuals listed above, officially maligned are @JeffDSachs, @RandPaul, former Brazil President @LulaOficial, Col. Douglas MacGregor, Caleb Maupin, Marine LePen and many others:… ImageImageImageImage
It takes extreme audacity for Zelansky and his henchmen to go around the world demanding other nations send massive amounts of weapons and money to him, then try to suppress dissent in our countries by smearing journalists and citizens who question. My full statement to @unherd: Image
I'll be on Fox with @TuckerCarlson, 8:30 pm ET, about the Zelensky Govt's secret list of "Russian propagandists" -- i.e., people such as myself, @RandPaul, @TulsiGabbard, @LulaOficial and others who dared question their demands for endless war support:

Here's the House roll call vote on whether to impose a warrant requirement on domestic spying (yes, the Constitution does that).

The vote was tied 212-212. Speaker Johnson -- despite years of claiming he favored warrants -- cast the decisive NO vote.…
Among the Dems voting NO on the warrant requirement, giving the US Security State what it wants:

Schiff, Pelosi, Clyburn, Wasserman-Schultz, Lieu, Dan Goldman, Raskin, Thompson (Jan 6 crew).

Among GOP voting NO:

Crenshaw, Lawler, Stefanik, McCaul, Turner, Gallagher.
I have not seen the US Security State or war machine not get what it wants in Washington.

In the face of mass abuse of surveillance power, they just got renewed warrantless spying power on Americans.

They now have Mike Johnson working to get them the $60b to send to Ukraine.

Last night @elonmusk vowed to honor the endless, repressive and due-process-free censorship orders from Brazil's Judge Alexandre de Moraes.

The Judge has banned various journalists and members of Congress, among others, from social media.

This would be a huge deal for Brazil:
Rumble last year also announced that it would refuse to comply. The platform was expending huge resources to constantly take down videos and ban users upon the endless, lawless orders of a single job.

Amazingly, Rumble is no longer available to anyone in Brazil, getting this: Image
In January of last year, we obtained one of the secret orders Judge Moraes issues to platforms. This one banned Senators, Congress members and journalists, and mandated secrecy.

No due process. We reported it here. Hard to overstate how extreme it is:

UK Court hands Assange a partial victory in the Biden DOJ's attempt to extradite him.

US must provide explicit assurances that Assange 1) can raise a 1st Am defense, 2) will have the same rights as US citizens and 3) will never face the death penalty.

Deadline is April 16.
In the meantime, Assange remains in Belmarsh, the high security UK prison where he has been held for 5 years.

Every press freedom and civil liberties group in the West has urged Biden DOJ to drop this prosecution as a grave threat to press freedom:

The goal is not to bring Assange to the US.

Biden WH doesn't want the sideshow of a trial; daily protests; discovery into CIA; Assange on the stand; Biden as the first-ever president to imprison a publisher.

They want to kill Assange through conviction-free imprisonment.

NBC negotiated a contract with Jen Psaki while she was White House Press Secretary.

ABC hired George Stephanopoulos -- directly from the Clinton WH, with no journalism experience.

All these networks hire operatives from the US Security State.

It never prompts this melodrama:
This is obviously such a more extreme case of mixing media and state:

Genuinely hilarious:

WSJ says MSNBC won't put Ronna McDaniel because it would upset their liberal hosts and audience.

MSNBC is drowning in political hacks, including Jen Psaki and Michael Steele.

But what they can't have is dissent regarding Trump.…

How dare the US President weigh in on a war he has caused American citizens to finance, arm and support!

Look at the mentality of these Israel fanatics: the duty of American citizens is not only to finance Israel's military and wars, but also never question what Israel does:
Biden has devoted his career and adult life to being one of DC's most loyal and unyielding defenders of Israel (see below).

He voted to send billions over decades. After Oct 7, he armed Israel and demanded $17 billion more.

But nothing is enough:

One of Obama and Biden's last acts before leaving the WH was a record-breaking $38 billion aid package to Israel.

Biden has repeatedly had the US isolate itself from the world at the UN to protect Israel.

The bombs Israel uses in Gaza are given by Biden and paid for by the US. Image

Perfect New York Times headline.

Perfect expression of predominant US liberal ideology.

Perfect illustration of the subservient relationship between corporate media and the US Government.

Yes, it's designed to be "playful": to humanize the most powerful agencies.

Just as "free speech" now codes as a right-wing value, so, too, do criticisms or denunciations of FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, etc.

Just check your favorite left-liberal politicians and/or media figures and see how rarely those entities are critiqued. They're seen as allies.
