Henry A. Giroux | Political Frauds and the Ghost of Totalitarianism

Giroux: Few journalists have acknowledged the presence of white militia and white supremacists groups at Trump’s rallies….

Glenn Greenwald: On the One-Year Anniversary of Israel’s Attack on Gaza | An Interview with Max Blumenthal

Greenwald: “The 51 Day War” is remarkably free of polemic, even as it retains its passion. It seems clear, at least to me, that Blumenthal was so moved by what he heard and saw in Gaza that he knew nothing would be more effective and revealing than just letting those stories speak for themselves.

Vice News: Inside Washington’s Quest to Bring Down Edward Snowden

Leopold: A bipartisan group of Washington lawmakers solicited details from Pentagon officials that they could use to “damage” former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s “credibility in the press and the court of public opinion.”

Naomi Klein: Reading I.F. Stone on Earth Day: Why We Still Won’t Get Anywhere Unless We Connect the Dots

Stone: Until we have a leadership willing to make the enormous changes—psychological, military, and bureaucratic—to end the existing world system, a system of hatred, of anarchy, of murder, of war and pollution, there is no use talking about buying more wastebaskets or spending a couple of hundred million dollars on the Missouri River.

Glenn Greenwald: US threatened Germany over Snowden, vice chancellor says

Evergreene Digest: Hollywood Heroism in the Age of Empire: From “Citizenfour” and “Selma” to “American Sniper”

Moral and political courage is in short supply these days and rarely represented in any form in the Hollywood celluloid universe. Under a regime of neoliberalism, a persistent racism and politics of disposability are matched by a theater of cruelty in which more and more individuals and groups are considered throwaways. The Oscars: a decadent […]

John Nichols: David Carr Was Our Guide Through a ‘Dead-Bang Ugly’ Media Moment

Nichols: Carr was as sharp-witted as they came. And he had an eye that recognized every fumble by media moguls, elite anchormen, neo-Luddites and digital utopians. Yet, instead of calling them out for the sake of calling them out, he sought to understand and, ultimately, to explain the economic and technological and human demands that have thrown journalism and media into a new paradigm that is not evolving but, rather, coming at us at speeds now measured in gigabits.

▶ “When you collect everything, you understand nothing” – Snowden

“Democracy is about participation…we take risks. We dare,” he said. “Sometimes we do right and sometimes we do wrong, even if we intended to do right.” He suggested that expressing disagreement with the government is the right course of action when its behavior is perceived as“morally unjustifiable.”

Don’t Claim to Support the Troops If You Agree With Obama Sending 3,100 Soldiers to Iraq

If fighting terror means perpetual war, then we’ve already lost and our soldiers will ultimately be the ones who pay the greatest price. President Obama, and 40% of the American people, are making a terrible mistake by focusing more upon beheading videos than the psychological, emotional, and physical toll that Iraq has inflicted upon our […]

The Intercept: New Zealand Launched Mass Surveillance Project While Publicly Denying It

 Snowden, in a post for The Intercept published today [9.14.14], accused Prime Minster Key of fundamentally misleading the public about GCSB’s role in mass surveillance. “The Prime Minister’s claim to the public, that ‘there is no and there never has been any mass surveillance’, is false,” the former NSA analyst wrote.

Snowden: I Left the NSA Clues, But They Couldn’t Find Them

In addition to shedding light on his motives, Snowden says he meant the clues to allow the NSA to avoid collateral damage from his leaks, changing codenames and plans to anticipate the release of some of its most sensitive secrets.

Greenwald and Hussain: Meet the Muslim-American Leaders the FBI and NSA Have Been Spying On

Indeed, the government’s ability to monitor such high-profile Muslim-Americans—with or without warrants—suggests that the most alarming and invasive aspects of the NSA’s surveillance occur not because the agency breaks the law, but because it is able to exploit the law’s permissive contours.
