“Despite calls to fund life-sustaining food and housing programs, President Biden has encouraged more spending on police tech. Almost as if he’s expecting people to be angry about something.

Democracy Now Pushes For War & Peace In Ukraine?…

Date: March 17, 2022

01) LINK


“On a recent episode of Democracy Now, host Amy Goodman opened the show with a video of a Ukrainian choir singing their demands for, according to Goodman, “peace and a no-fly zone.” The two are mutually exclusive, of course, as a no-fly zone would bring NATO and Russia into direct conflict, so the possibility of peace AND a no-fly zone is a non-starter, as Goodman well knows.

Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Aaron Maté ( https://mate.substack.com ) discuss all the ways the once-great Democracy Now has gone off the rails and sacrificed its progressive bona fides in the process.”

Facebook OKs Violent Speech – But Only Against Russians!…

“Facebook has for many years enforced a strict policy against users who endorse or encourage violence against others, but that’s now coming to an end. That’s because, in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Facebook users in certain Eastern European countries will now be allowed to encourage violent acts against certain targets – those “acceptable” targets being Russian soldiers and political leaders.

Jimmy and journalist Glenn Greenwald discuss the social media platform’s disturbing embrace of violent rhetoric against only targets disfavored by western governments.”

Texas Republicans Are Investigating 9 Families For Supporting Their Transgender Kids…

“The Republican-controlled state of Texas has confirmed that they are investigating 9 different instances of caring parents providing gender-affirming care for their transgender children. This is part of the new Texas law designed to force children into gender roles that Republicans have disguised as caring about the sanctity of families. This is an outright assault on loving families, as Farron Cousins explains.

DuckDuckGo DESTROYS Brand By Embracing Censorship…

“Popular “alternative” search engine DuckDuckGo has run into something of a PR problem after CEO and founder Gabriel Weinberg announced that, in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, DuckDuckGo would alter search results to limit users’ access to disinformation and propaganda disseminated by the Russian government. Users have balked at this perceived censorship, pointing out that the search engine is popular because it serves as an alternative to sites like Google and Bing that operate as virtual extensions of the US government’s security state.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger trade puns on the DuckDuckGo name while mocking Weinberg’s potentially brand-destroying PR screwup.”

The proposed removal of Human Rights in the UK for the Greater Good…

March 12, 2022

Thanks to feinmann!

“The UK government is looking to reform human rights legislation after its divorce from the EU. They want to replace the Human Rights Act with a modern Bill of Rights, “one which reinforces our freedoms under the rule of law, but also provides a clearer demarcation of the separation of powers between the courts and Parliament”.


COMMENT from SUBMITTER:

A further statement within the bill: “The idea that rights come alongside duties and responsibilities is steeped in the UK tradition of liberty, but is also reflected in the qualifications in the Convention and is explicit in Article 29 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights (‘Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible’). The increasing reliance on human rights claims over the years has, however, led to a culture of rights decoupled from our responsibilities as citizens, and a displacement of due consideration of the wider public interest”

Whether it comes in the guise of “wider society,” “wider public interest,” “society as a whole,” “the greater good,” or “public health,” “the common good” is always a euphemism for seizing individual rights to enhance tyrannical powers.”

The primary predators of this world are in government.

Why is it WE never get to choose, who and what constitutes “the greater good”?

WE only get to sacrafice, and live a life impoverished, in service of someone elses delusions of “the greater good”.

EXCLUSIVE: MPP “Coup” Contradicted – “No Tangible Evidence,” No “Free Pass” for Nick Brana…

“Jordan Chariton is joined by Tina-Desiree Berg (@TinaDesireeBerg on Twitter) to discuss Jordan’s latest BREAKING news showing evidence contradicting Nick Brana’s claims.”

Again…Bernie Sanders had Nick Brana as a big wig running his campaign for U.S. President, and his campaign got accused of “allowing sexual harassment”…

…Nick Brana has been leading the MPP, and accusations of sexual harassment have surfaced again…

…Mere coincidence?

I’m not sure who this Nick Brana bozo even is, to be running political campaigns in the first place…but campaigns he has an authoritative hand in, keep getting run into the ground from within.

…Seems awful curious.
