Venezuela's Deep Political Education Means Venezuelans Will Withstand Right-Wing Protests

Venezuela's Deep Political Education Means Venezuelans Will Withstand Right-Wing Protests"The misinformation in most of the media about the protests in Venezuela is astounding. Often the opposite of reality is repeated as if it were true. Americans who rely on the corporate mass media, politicians and corrupted nonprofits might fall for these tales, but Venezuelans know what is really happening."

Article: Ukrainian Neo-Nazis Declare that Power Comes Out of the Barrels of their Guns | OpEdNews"Ukraine is out of control. This is what happens when an arrogant, but stupid, Assistant Secretary of State (Victoria Nuland) plots with an equally arrogant and stupid US ambassador (Pyatt) to put their candidates in power once their coup against the elected president succeeds. The ignorant and deluded who deny any such plotting occurred can listen to the conversation between Nuland and Pyatt here."

How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations - The Intercept

How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations - The Intercept: "One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents."

Inside the Mind of James Clapper - The Intercept

Inside the Mind of James Clapper - The Intercept: "It’s been rather amazing to watch not only the standard roster of government-loyal American journalists, but also those who fancy themselves some sort of cynical critics, uncritically regurgitate the government’s evidence-free assertion that Snowden took and then gave to journalists 1.7 million documents. It amazes me because: (1) anyone at this point who is willing to equate evidence-free government assertions with Truth is drowning in some extreme levels of authoritarianism, by definition; and (2) the government clearly has no idea what Snowden took, as report after report has made crystal clear."

The 2014 edition of the U.S. Olympic men's hockey team beat their Russian counterparts, setting off a wave of raw nationalist fervor and conjuring up memories of the late Cold War era."

Article: Legalizing Oppression | OpEdNews: "The lynching and disbarring of civil rights lawyer Lynne Stewart, who because she has terminal cancer was recently released from prison after serving four years of a 10-year sentence, is a window into the collapse of the American legal system. Stewart -- who has stood up to state power for more than three decades in order to give a voice to those whom authorities seek to crush, who has spent her life defending the poor and the marginalized, who wept in court when one of her clients was barred from presenting a credible defense -- is everything a lawyer should be in an open society. But we no longer live in an open society. The persecution of Stewart is the persecution of us all."

Article: Republican Tennessee U.S. Senator Misleads, Cheats Workers; VW Exec. Exposes Senator's Fraud Against VW's Workers | OpEdNews: "A political and economic scandal in Tennessee is mushrooming to the point where either the Republican U.S. Senator who started it, or else the labor union that has suffered defeat from it, may yet rue the day, but in an extraordinary way. A normal U.S. labor-management conflict this certainly was not:"
