ACTIVISM

Nero’s Guests in Palestine, by Chris Hedges

Hatred is a dangerous political commodity. The Palestinian “human animals,” when eradicated or subdued, will be replaced by Jewish apostates and traitors. A politics of hatred creates a permanent instability, exploited by those seeking the destruction of civil society.

MEDIA

Glenn Greenwald: Julian Assange’s Plea Deal: EXPLAINED

Unless you are somebody who has been in [Assange’s] position and has shown a willingness to sacrifice even more than Assange has ─ nobody has any standing to object to what Assange chose to do [in pleading guilty to charges of espionage] but that doesn't mean that the decision they forced him into [for freedom] isn't incredibly dangerous to the Press freedoms that the United States repeatedly claims around the world that it protects.

Assange Wins! Highlights of the Day

Stella (Assange's wife): Thank you. I want to be very clear today marks a turning point. We went into court and we sat and heard the United States fumbling through their arguments trying to paint lipstick on a pig; they are pigs, Well, the judges were not convinced [Applause]. Everyone can see what's going on here. The United States case is offensive; it offends our Democratic principles; it offends our right to know. It is an attack on journalists everywhere, people everywhere. [Applause]

Greg Palast: If We Don’t Expose it, this old Klan Scam Will Pick Your President, by Thom Hartmann

A note from Greg Palast: The Trump plan for 2024 is taken from the KKK plan of 1946, when the Klan  incorporated itself in Georgia as “Vigilantes Inc.” specifically to eliminate every Black citizen from the voter rolls. And now, a new Vigilantes Inc. operation is back — for Trump. The exact same plan as the KKK 1940’s scheme — now powered by billionaires’ loot.

Oh, sacred world now wounded,
we pledge to make you free,
of hate, of war, and selfish cruelty,
and here in our small corner
we plant a tiny seed,
and it will grow to beauty
to shame the face of greed

Pete Seeger
