Ep34-The Compatible Left & Information Warfare w/Ben Norton Ben & I discuss the recent attacks on anti-war voices as part of a long history of the state creating a "compatible left" that's allowed to exist, as long as it poses no threat to US interests patreon.com/posts/episode-…

🚨New episode!🚨

"This is information warfare." Journalist @BenjaminNorton addresses the recent attacks on him from the NYT and Daily Beast, who've accused him of trafficking in conspiracy theory for calling the events of 2014 in Ukraine a coup.

The visual embodiment of colonialism: US-funded occupation forces of the Israeli apartheid regime attacking family members of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh as they carry a casket with her body in a funeral procession, after those same colonialists shot her in the head
They shot Shereen in the head as she reported and blamed Palestinians for her murder minutes later, the next day they raided her home and assaulted her mourning family, the next day they beat and attacked those carrying her body. A truly sickening colony

The US is trying to bring the right-wing governments in India, Japan, and Australia together in a so-called "Quad" alliance to wage war on China.

Beijing condemned it as “a tool for containing and besieging China to maintain US hegemony”

Joined my G7 colleagues in deploring the increasing restrictions imposed on women and girls in Afghanistan by the Taliban. Severely limiting half the population's ability to fully, equally and meaningfully participate in society will not advance peace, stability or development.
Replying to @SecBlinken
I of course agree that the misogynist restrictions imposed on women in Afghanistan are horrific and reprehensible, but you know what severely limits the entire population's ability to eat and survive?

This is big news! Can Mexico be far behind?
Replying to @BhadraPunchline
Mexico has been considered as a potential member of the BRICS bloc in the past, but was likely excluded because it is already part of the OECD, unlike Argentina. No BRICS member is part of the OECD.

#China has invited #Argentina to attend the 2022 summits of the #BRICS economic bloc. Argentina’s ambassador says it’s a step toward “formal entry” to the grouping, an alternative to the US-dominated financial system.

Right, so, if a Latin American left president verbally criticises the mainstream media it's considered an "assault on the press".

When Israel actually shoots a journalist in the head and then attacks said journalist's funeral, they're the 'only democracy in the Middle East' 🧐

"Former" CIA officer @BryanDeanWright tells Tucker Carlson (who has also tried to join the CIA) that some Democratic Party leaders may in fact be secret intelligence agents working for China. This is easily as deranged as anything we've seen on MSNBC about Russia.

They did this with Trump and then he applied "maximum pressure" sanctions on Cuba during a pandemic, destroyed the Iran nuclear deal, dropped the mother of all bombs on Afghanistan, and also repeatedly sanctioned Putin and Russia quiet as its kept.

The US empire is waging many wars right now, not just one. Yes, a few Republicans (claim to) oppose the proxy war in Ukraine because they like Russia, but there is not a single GOP politician who consistently opposes all of the US hybrid wars on China, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, etc.
 
In reply to @BenjaminNorton
That's utter fucking bullshit. You're just inventing fiction because your religion teaches virtuous political ideas can only reside on the left, never the right. So you make up facts to obscure that anti-war sentiment for *the war now* is on the Right.

This isn't true at all. Yes, most Democrats are pro-war, but the idea of "anti-interventionist" GOP/Fox is total nonsense.

Both are pro-war. They just disagree on the targets of empire.

Dems want war on Russia. Republicans want war on China/Iran/Cuba.

They're all imperialists
Replying to @BenjaminNorton
It's 100% understandable to hate the Democratic Party; it's completely neoliberal and pro-imperialist. But there are some pundits who hate liberals so much they do a reverse lesser-evilism and want us to believe the far-right, pro-war Republican Party is "anti-interventionist"

I'm sorry this traditionally left-wing view on war is now heard overwhelmingly instead in anti-interventionist GOP camps and on Fox News, almost never in mainstream liberal outlets or from Dem politicians (*all* of whom just voted for Biden's $40b escalation), but it's a fact:

The US Drug Exporting, sorry I mean Enforcement Admin (DEA) is the world's biggest drug cartel.

Bolivia kicked out the DEA, and drug trafficking decreased significantly.

Now Mexico is reducing cooperation with the DEA, so this Reuters propagandist is aggressively attacking AMLO
Scoop: In a fresh hit to security cooperation, the DEA has withdrawn from Mexico a plane that was used for counter-narcotics operations for decades.

Mexico revoked DEA's parking space.

‘It will bring operations to a halt,’ said one source.
