"The party’s own defense counsel indicate that the DNC sees the democratic process in its nomination procedure as meaningless, with the real decisions determined by party insiders."
"Establishment media has hardly held them to account. DNC cheerleaders in the corporate press have not only ignored the fraud perpetrated by the @DNC in 2016, but some have argued that “Too Much Democracy is Bad for Democracy.”
"The Feb '17 @Consortiumnews article, by Arina Tuskanova exclusively for CN, was titled “A Nazi Skeleton in the Family Closet.” It reveals that Freeland lied about her grandfather’s past as an editor of a Nazi newspaper in occupied Poland during the war. " consortiumnews.com/2017/02/27/a-n…
@Consortiumnews Robert Parry, founder of Consortium News wrote regarding the reaction to Tuskanova's piece:
"Instead of fessing up and acknowledging these facts, Freeland chose to dissemble and slander journalists who were doing their job."
@DNC Clinton’s comments to the effect that @TulsiGabbard is being groomed by Russia & that @DrJillStein is a #RussianAsset were echoed by #DNC-friendly pundits, externalizing what Gabbard called the “rot” in the Democratic party onto domestic critics and a nation across the planet.
The problem is less picking one candidate over the other, & more about backlash from recognizing that the @DNC primary process is so overtly rigged that it's not a matter of if there will be cheating, but how are the respective candidates going to react to it.
@DNC Some people aren't ready to face that reality. The problem with Bernie specifically is that we already saw his non-response to being cheated once, & Tulsi stood up for him more than he stood up for himself. Recognizing that is where a lot of Bernie supporters get angry.
@DNC They want to believe he is fighting for them. Look at that latest solidarity ad he did.
Not only did he not fight the Democratic establishment on their behalf, he actually hawked that same corruption to them and asked them to support it. That's the vomit-worthiness of Sanders.
Several cases in the unsavory history linking intelligence agencies and sex scandals put the allegations against #Epstein in context. Among these was the U.K. #Kincora Boy’s Home, where at least 29 boys were reported to have been targeted from the mid 50s to the late 70s.
If there are no vigils near you and you feel a new stand-alone event in your area would be unsuccessful, you can always raise your voice by participating in other events, like Pride Parades as @Reikilass did -
"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."
Virtually every week during the #Unity4J vigils, we discuss the harmful effect of #Qanon & similar narratives re: holding @realDonaldTrump accountable for his horrendous treatment of both @xychelsea and #JulianAssange. We ask our guests how they feel we can combat this harm.
"... Many on social media are misleading others into thinking that there are legal proceedings afoot in Sweden today. This assertion is simply wrong. #Assange has never been charged in Sweden, the investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct was closed, twice."
"Consortium News today begins a series of articles, “The Revelations of #WikiLeaks,” that will look back on the major works of the publication that have altered the world since its founding in 2006."
"This series is an effort to counter mainstream media coverage, which is ignoring #WikiLeaks’ work, and instead is focusing on #JulianAssange’s personality. It is the uncovering by WikiLeaks of governments’ crimes and corruption that set the U.S. after #Assange..."
"The so-called “Protocol” forced on #Assange without his consent has no legal legitimacy whatsoever, and never applied to the @WikiLeaks Twitter account, which Assange has not been able to access for over a year."
"This is thanks to @Lenin Moreno’s unilateral decision to sever Assange's connection with the outside world, including internet access. Nonetheless, #Moreno centers his accusations on the WikiLeaks’ Twitter account, for merely observing the unfolding #INAPapers scandal."
This thread only includes articles I authored. The #Forensicator and @with_integrity's plethora of work is additional testimony to the fact that the long slog of fighting #Russiagate misinformation was too often waged by people with a small or nonexistent platform.
In just a few days, it will have been a full year since WikiLeaks's Julian Assange was severed from contact with the outside world.
"Concerns were heightened after a US #DOJ jet previously used for the rendition of an accused #Russian hacker landed in London on Tuesday, and remained there for days, only to return to the US on Saturday. The flight reportedly departed initially from Manassas, Virginia." #Auspol
"In August of 2018, Forensicator came under fire for suggesting a sequence of events that might explain a one hour difference observed between the files in one of the archive files published by #Guccifer2 and another."
