If any country is going to have the 'mightiest' army in Asia, shouldn't it be the largest country in the region, China? It certainly shouldn't be the US which isn't even located in Asia, and has brought genocide and destruction to Vietnam, Korea & Japan!

Women's March™ neoliberals want you to believe that a warmongering rich white woman who killed women throughout the Global South (RIP Berta Cáceres) & brought slavery to Libya is less ~problematic~ than an actual woman of color campaigning to end US wars

I didn’t hear the answer, but Tulsi is a woman of color... that fact is almost always erased, not to mention that her platform is all about ending America’s wars, which would benefit women of color in the global south. This sounds like a terrible take, wow

Neoliberals at the Women's March™ repeatedly praised right-wing, fanatically pro-war, Wall Street-funded Hillary Clinton—an extremely white woman (who exploited Black prison labor in Arkansas) But now they're dishonestly, absurdly smearing Tulsi Gabbard—an actual woman of color

I'm sorry to my brave anonymous critic - and anyone else aggrieved - that I got the Trump/Russia story right because getting it right helped the wrong side. Journalism is about helping the right party win, not figuring out what's true and false.

This interview by , where the OAS rep for Venezuela's US-backed coup regime was challenged by a journalist for once, is hilarious and bizarre. He proved Godwin's Law, then took off his glasses and claimed no one is on the streets of Venezuela

. asked questions the new OAS rep for Venezuela's US-backed coup regime, , is not used to hearing. He took off his glasses and tried to give them to her, claiming "You did not see anyone in the streets [of Venezuela]!" (where he has not been in 5 years)

NATO partner Colombia is a human rights hellhole, worse than Venezuela by all measures. But these murders are completely ignored by fake humanitarians as Colombia is used as a staging ground for a coup in Venezuela

Here's current Speaker of 's Parliament glorifying UPA. UPA's core was composed of Holocaust perpetrating former Auxiliary Police, & UPA also killed thousands of Jews & 70--100K Poles. Parubiy himself was founder of far right "Social National" party (reverse the 2 words)

Joe Biden is Hilary Clinton 2.0. The Democratic rift from 2016 is still a thing, and Biden represent the corporate hawkish establishment’s desperation in preventing the Bernie Sanders candidacy that this moment requires. If they get their way we’re fucked

This is the most honest speech US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has ever given and will ever give: "I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. We had entire training courses. "It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment."

At their 5-year anniversary Brooklyn event, several staffers made fun of Glenn Greenwald—by far their best journalist Now Politico has confirmed that colleagues see Glenn's indispensable, *actual fearless, adversarial journalism* as a threat

According to this Politico story, somehow Glenn Greenwald is viewed as a threat to The Intercept's ability to "credibly cover the Russia story"... because he was one of the few to get it exactly right. Do we want journalists, or cult members?

This coup propaganda was produced by , the Americas Society & Council of the Americas — the old boys' club founded by oligarch David Rockefeller to help his fellow capitalists crush communism in Latin America so they can exploit and ravage the region
