The January 6th Scam
Margaret Kimberley: Democrats are using the hearings investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol as one long campaign commercial. They believe that saying the name Trump often enough will inspire disappointed and angry people to vote for them despite their lies and failures. ... While the dog and pony show goes on, there doesn’t seem to be much effort to protect votes around the country. ... If Trumpers can gather to say that their president won despite all evidence to the contrary, then surely progressives can coalesce around the life and death issues that matter to millions of people...

We’re Here To Become As Conscious As Possible
Caitlin Johnstone: By expanding their consciousness of what other people’s experience of the world is like, a slow realization begins to dawn that we’re all basically the same and it doesn’t make much sense for some people to be treated differently from others. ... We will either keep expanding our awareness of what’s really going on in this weird universe our mothers birthed us into, or we will wipe ourselves out via nuclear war or ecocide. ...

The Problem with Juneteenth
Margret Kimberley: Juneteenth was a people's holiday with deep meaning for the descendants of enslaved people. But the declaration of an official federal holiday has turned it into an opportunity for corporate exploiters and cynical politicians to show pretend concern for Black people ...

U.S. Effort to Hurt Russia Undermines Itself and the World
Margaret Kimberley: The U.S. drive to dominate creates self-inflicted wounds and self-imposed crises. It also creates suffering around the world with only the most servile vassal states willing to do what Washington wants. ... The United States continues to shoot itself in the foot in its futile effort to damage the Russian economy. ... the rest of the world has refused to join in U.S. and EU condemnations or accept that they must live with privations caused by the reckless actions of other nations ...

Mass Shootings, Empire, and Racist, Copaganda Dog Whistles
Margaret Kimberley: The anger and grief after mass shootings are followed by lies and pretense that violence here is somehow mysterious. ... A settler colonial state founded on indigenous genocide and African enslavement that is still addicted to the doctrine of racial domination will be violent. ... How could it be otherwise? ... Uvalde showed what abolitionists have long maintained, that police don’t deter crime, exist to lock up marginalized groups, and show up only after crimes are committed. ...

Liberals Drive State Censorship
Margaret Kimberley: Liberals are the force behind censorship efforts. They defend the state and seek to silence anyone who questions its narratives. ... the Department of Homeland Security announced the establishment of a Disinformation Governance Board ... conservatives and those who are truly on the left saw the danger in what some called a Ministry of Truth, as described in George Orwell’s 1984 ...

Israel’s PR Problem, And Other Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Israel’s mounting PR crisis boils down to the fact that its violence and oppression isn’t happening in some far off land as in the case with US wars, it’s happening right at home surrounded by video cameras and enforced by police and soldiers who are not adept PR spinmeisters. ... They don’t think how it’s going to look when they, for example, assault mourners at the funeral of a Palestinian American journalist who was slain by IDF sniper fire. ...

Obama and Liberals Killed Abortion Rights
Margaret Kimberley: The left wing of the democratic party won't mobilize effectively on abortion.Their dependence on liberalism and treacherous democrats renders them powerless. ... As a presidential candidate in 2008 Obama promised to sign the Freedom of Choice Act , which would have codified abortion rights into federal law.

The Poor Peoples Campaign Dishonors Martin Luther King
Margaret Kimberley: It is disheartening to hear movement leaders say they are inspired by Martin Luther King while also supporting the U.S. proxy war against Russia. Like all wars it endangers the lives of civilian populations, enriches the military industrial complex, and robs Americans of public resources. Once King chose an anti-war stance he did not waiver in his condemnations of U.S. empire. ... Rev. Barber and the Poor People’s Campaign are preparing for a Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers Assembly and Moral March on Washington and to the Polls taking place on June 18, 2022. ...

Oh God It’s Going To Get SO Much Worse
Caitlin Johnstone: The Department of Homeland Security has secretly set up a “Disinformation Governance Board“, only informing the public about its plans for the institution after it had already been established. ... The disinformation board, which critics have understandably been calling a “Ministry of Truth“, purportedly exists to fight disinformation coming out of Russia as well as misleading messages about the US-Mexico border. ...

Obama Wants Censorship
Margaret Kimbrley: Barack Obama and his ruling class bosses are losing legitimacy with more and more people. They have decided that censoring information will resolve their problems. ... The only way out for discredited liberalism is to shut down anyone who might utter inconvenient truths. ... While Facebook and Twitter are already arms of the state, and restrict access to anyone who strays from their narratives, Obama would like them to do more harm ... Of course they should be regulated, but as public utilities which guarantee access to everyone. ... Just know that whatever Obama and the EU want is not good for the public.

The US Cries About War Crimes While Imprisoning A Journalist For Exposing Its War Crimes
