Greenwald: Romney’s “Treason” Smear of Tulsi Gabbard is False and Noxious, But Now Typifies U.S. Discourse
“It is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find any despot in history who does not weaponize accusations of “treason” against dissidents as a central instrument for control. That U.S. discourse has now descended completely to that level is barely debatable.”
“The cynicism of arming and funding the mujahedeen against the Soviets exposes the lie of America’s humanitarian concerns in Afghanistan.”
Palast on Staying Home with Josh Fox: All we’re asking is that the voters choose the politicians and not the opposite way around
“It was brutalizing to watch. When I saw the videos of people in Milwaukee in the rain, six feet apart, standing there for hours to be able to vote because there were only five polling stations open in the entire city, it broke my heart…”
“The publication of classified documents is not yet a crime in the United States. If Assange is extradited and convicted, it will become one.”
Trump…will not go quietly into this good night. He will attempt to bring the whole rotten edifice down with him. And he may succeed.

The oil monarchies have thus used their petro-wealth to create a pro-war consensus in Washington that is nearly 100-percent complete. Needless to say, this will not benefit the mass of ordinary Americans, the people who will have to fight and die in such conflicts and whose taxes will pay for them.
“I didn’t like Clinton at all, but her positions are much better than Trump’s on every issue I can think of…”
“Veteran journalist Diana Johnstone captures the imperial worldview of Hillary Clinton in memorable detail. Hillary the Hawk, as U.S. Senator and Secretary of State, never saw a weapons system she did not support nor a U.S. war practice she did not endorse.” —Ralph Nader
Swanson: I remain convinced that the media is keeping Sanders and Trump around for ratings and will destroy them as soon as it chooses, and never chooses to do such a thing as early as the December of the year before the election.
