While Hillary's lying, viral tweet about Trump and Alfa Bank remains up -- even when the FBI said it was a fraud -- Twitter has put a warning on my tweet about Azov even though there is not a single claim that is even disputable, let alone provably false: Image That tweet, which Twitter -- acting as usual on behalf of the US Security State and US foreign policy -- is claiming needs a warning label, was nothing more than a 100% accurate summary of this NYT op-ed on Azov. Read it for yourself and you'll see:

Good morning. The Clinton campaign fabricated a completely false story about Trump having a secret server with a Russian bank. The 2 servile partisan "reporters" who most pushed it -- @FranklinFoer and @NatashaBertrand -- have been repeatedly promoted.

edition.cnn.com/2022/05/20/pol… This has long been known but the proof is emerging now because Hillary's lawyer is on trial for lying to FBI - ie, they not only planted this disinformation with the press but also with FBI. Hillary's campaign manager, Robby Mook, says Hillary personally approved the press leak.

Whatever your views on Ukraine, the war and the US role: it's just amazing that the Western press -- which spent a full decade in unison calling the Azov Battalion neo-Nazi fanatics -- now speak of them in admiring terms and will only say that their Nazism is a "Russian claim." The first 3 images: how @Reuters itself described Azov prior to the Russian invasion: as a dangerous neo-Nazi menace.

The last image: @Reuters today saying that such descriptions (its own) are merely Russian assertions. ImageImageImageImage

Absolutely fucking amazing and sickening that the same outlets that spread the CIA lie right before the election that these documents were "Russian disinformation" and must therefore be banned, are now using those docs to "raise questions" now that the election is safely over. On April 3 -- almost two months ago -- the WPost called for a media "reckoning" over how most of them spread this CIA lie to protect Biden. Not one -- CNN, HuffPost, Intercept, Mother Jones, NBC, etc. etc. - has even acknowledged this let alone retracted:

Not only did every single House Dem vote for Biden's $40b war package, every one of them also just voted to give FBI, DHS, DOJ more power to fight "domestic terrorism." It barely passed because most GOP voted against. The Squad comes through again for the US Security State. It's been clear for more than a year that Dems would exploit 1/6 to massively increase the US Security State's powers for a new War on Terror, this one domestic, like 9/11 was exploited for the first War on Terror: gruesome but mostly directed outward.

From her days as a professional liar for the Bush/Cheney WH and campaign, now as a beloved-by-liberals MSNBC host, @NicolleDWallace has for two decades been the Typhoid Mary of Disinformation. Nobody spreads it more.

Our mini-documentary will be up today. The trailer, by @0rf: "The Typhoid Mary of Disinformation": Nicolle Wallace. Nobody Spreads it More Relentlessly.

Like in the House, every single Democratic Senator - and Bernie Sanders -- voted YES to send another $40b to Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and the CIA "for the war in Ukraine." That's $54b after just 11 weeks into this war. How much will it be after a year?

All 11 NO votes were GOP: If you want to see something remarkable, go read Bernie Sanders' op-ed in the Guardian from February as Russia was about to invade, where he warns about the grave dangers of exactly what he just voted to do.

It's like 2 completely different people:

The typical denial from corporate journalists that they're totally free to say whatever they want and operate with no constraints - because they never get memos ordering them what to say - is such a naïve and even infantile way of understanding how corporate power works. Chomsky: Of course Bezos, like most owners of major media corporations, doesn't pick up the phone or write emails telling journalists what to say. He doesn't need to. Everyone knows what the taboo ideas are and the pieties they must affirm. Large corporations only hire those who conform.

It's a cause of momentary celebration that the Department of Homeland Security was forced by popular anger to "pause" its Disinformation Board and the absurd #Resistance cartoon they hired to run it, but read this to see how angry WPost and @TaylorLorenz are that this happened: Investigating and criticizing a Homeland Security official is now "harassment" and bullying, according to the WashPost and @TaylorLorenz.

Only ordinary citizens can be investigated -- not high-level US Security State operatives. Them's the rules:

MSNBC is now explicitly and favorably invoking 9/11 and the War on Terror to argue the entire GOP should be designated a "domestic terrorist party."

Send Mitch McConnell to GITMO and waterboard Marco Rubio.

That's what happens when ex-Bush officials host the "liberal" network. Unsurprising that a political faction that reveres Liz Cheney, David Frum and Rick Wilson wants to apply a War on Terror framework to their political opponents.

Beyond that: the guest in that clip was allowed to say 78% of murders in the US are committed by "white supremacists"!

I spent the last several days in Miami, speaking at the @theallinpod conference. A consensus from those with whom I spoke: Twitter continues to self-destruct by so blatantly censoring to favor liberals -- the ideology of its workforce -- thus forever driving away non-liberals. For years, the core value of Twitter -- financial and social -- was it was one of the few remaining public squares where people of all ideologies still interacted. Now, non-liberals don't trust it, are fleeing to free speech platforms: Rumble, @getcallin and, yes, Truth Social.

Darrell Brooks and James Hodgkinson weren't "lone wolves." They are mainstream Democrats. My latest in Rolling Stone. Rolling Stone is willing to announce *half of Americans* are Nazi psychopaths (including *many* who are non-white) because:

1) Lying in corporate media about liberals' enemies is not just permitted but *encouraged*.

2) Liberals need to believe all who opposes them are racists.

The Demented - and Selective - Game of Instantly Blaming Political Opponents For Mass Shootings

greenwald.substack.com/p/the-demented… All ideologies spawn psychopaths who kill innocents in its name. Yet only some are blamed for their violent adherents: by opportunists cravenly exploiting corpses while they still lie on the ground.

I defy anyone to read this @RandPaul thread - a summary of the Senate speech he gave - and argue he's wrong.

Even if you support flooding Ukraine with endless US money and weapons, the amounts are staggering, the risks of escalation severe. Shouldn't there at least be oversight? In light of the creepily *unanimous* Dem Party support for this rapidly escalating US war role, I also strongly encourage everyone to read what @BernieSanders warned about in the @guardian on Feb. 8, about what the US shouldn't do after Russia invades:

NEW: The Bizarre, Unanimous Democratic Party Support for the $40b War Package to Raytheon and CIA: "For Ukraine"

greenwald.substack.com/p/the-bizarre-… Many Dems voting YES on this gigantic and largely unprecedented war bill have long denounced exactly these sorts of bills, and even *very recently* warned against pouring billions of money and weapons into Ukraine.

What happened? And why won't they explain their votes?

Apparently -- according to Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer -- we are "in a time of war," which makes criticism of our President "unfortunate."

I didn't realize the US was at war (OK, I did), but even so, that's not actually a reason to refrain from criticizing Joe Biden: "We're at war!" -- Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, today:

Good morning. May I show you something truly amazing? Look at what @CoriBush admits about the $40b war package she -- and the entire Squad -- just voted for: "a large percentage" goes not to Ukraine but "to private defense contractors," with "increased risks of direct war." Image To see her justifications for why she nonetheless voted YES, see the full statement, if you can discern a rationale.

At least she said something, unlike the other 5 Squad members who said nothing, despite requests, which I'll post if we receive anything:

NEW: The US Anti-War Left is Dead. The Squad's $40 Billion War Vote Just Killed It.

rumble.com/v14fh3w-the-us… For years, AOC and the Squad postured as standard left-wing anti-war and anti-imperialism activists. They railed against massive US expenditures to Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and the CIA. Now they just voted for one of the largest war packages ever. Listen to @AOC's own words:

There's not even an inkling of this sentiment anywhere on the mainstream American left (meaning the Bernie/AOC "left"). They are -- yet again -- in pure lockstep unity with the establishment wings of both parties over rapidly escalating a war with a nuclear-armed power. What's happening in DC seems to be a bridge too far even for NYT. In its report on Congress' approval of $40b more for the war in Ukraine - with every Dem voting YES - they note over and over: there is almost no questioning or debate over this escalation:

Could the $40 billion — which every House Democrat and most Republicans voted last night to sent to weapons manufacturers for Ukraine — have helped with this problem Americans are facing?🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦

🇺🇸 Last night @katieporteroc voted to send $40 billion to weapons manufacturers and other destinations for the war in Ukraine — $7 billion more than the Biden Admin wanted — while doing this.

The way they obey and fall into line to Pelosi is half-creepy and half-impressive.

Last July, the Squad vowed to vote NO on Pelosi's $2b more for Capitol Police - 6 months after chanting "Defend the Police!". @AOC reversed when she saw her NO vote would sink Pelosi's demand. Yesterday, Chomsky gave another interview, this one to @OwenJones84, warning of the grave dangers of US/NATO in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, AOC and the rest of the Squad just blindly vote YES to send another $40b to the war, even after Biden only asked for $33b.
