I keep hearing liberals and even leftists insisting that Russiagate and the blatantly exaggerated threat from Moscow is irrelevant to their politics. That couldn’t be more false. It’s not only been weaponized to ensure Endless War & imperialism but also for domestic politics:

If you’re convinced by the media voices that you follow that you’re a courageous #Resistance fighter engaged in an historically momentous battle against Literal Hitler, then you believe that anything done to your enemies – censorship, imprisonment, etc. – is moral and just:

I genuinely don’t understand why people who say „Free speech is an important principle, but…“ don’t just say: „I don’t believe in free speech because…“ People have always debated free speech. There have always been & always will be people who want to limit it. Just say that.

Glenn Greenwald warns government is expanding power amid coronavirus

Greenwald also noted that proponents of the Patriot Act in the wake of 9/11 had assured civil libertarians the law had a sunset provision. Yet, the law remains in effect nearly two decades later as a “permanent part of our political framework.”

“That is the great concern, how do you temporarily vest power in the hands of the state that might be necessary to preserve these liberties in the long term without simultaneously giving them those powers realistically even if you intend for it to be temporary in a way that becomes permanent?” he added.

System Update With Glenn Greenwald – Liz Franczak and Kyle Kulinski

In the debut episode of The Intercept’s new weekly show, host Glenn Greenwald does an in-depth examination of the Bernie Sanders 2020 primary campaign and the reasons why Sanders is, once again, unlikely to become the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. Glenn interviews journalist and podcaster Liz Franczac, and Kyle Kulinski, host of the Kyle Kulinski show, about mistakes made by the Sanders 2020 campaign and larger structural issues in the Democratic Party that make it virtually impossible for insurgent campaigns to succeed.

The Democratic establishment is shit and the only way meaningful, fundamental progress is possible in US politics is if it’s uprooted and destroyed.

Don’t forget how the CIA, the day before the vote, leaked that PUTIN was supporting Bernie & a cable network spent all of its time hysterically spreading that. That didn’t seem to matter much either. It appears Americans aren’t thinking much about the Kremlin as they vote:

22.02.2020 - 11:24 [ Glenn Greenwald / Twitter ]

The people who are actually Interfering In Our Elections is the US intelligence community – the CIA and friends – strategically leaking bullshit on the eve of critical elections to sway the vote against the candidates they hate. That’s illegal. And dangerously anti-democratic:

It’s extremely important to understand what the establishment wing of the Democratic Party is and who they are. Lying and cheating aren’t occasional ethical flaws they use in careless moments against their enemies. It’s the crux, the soul, of who they are. Expect it.

About the judicial decision today in Brazil rejecting the criminal charges brought against me. In sum: this ruling, while good, is insufficient as a protection of core press freedom. We will continue reporting and will also go to the Supreme Court for an even stronger ruling:

Brasilien: Journalist Greenwald vorerst nicht angeklagt

Leite sagte, der Journalist sei durch ein Urteil des Obersten Gerichtshofs aus dem vergangenen Jahr geschützt. Das Urteil lasse zu, dass Greenwald seine Quellen nicht veröffentlichen muss. Der Richter will demnach eine Klarstellung des Obersten Gerichtshofs abwarten, bevor er über eine Anklage entscheidet.

Brazilian Judge Declines to Move Forward With Charges Against Glenn Greenwald “for Now”

In the absence of the injunction issued by a Supreme Court minister that prohibited investigations into Greenwald related to this case, Leite said he would have let the charges against Greenwald move forward. The judge also said that, if the Supreme Court injunction were to be overturned, he would be open to charging Greenwald.

Wut über irre Anklageschrift gegen Journalisten Glenn Greenwald in Brasilien

Stand With Glenn Greenwald

In an obvious attempt to retaliate against The Intercept’s critical reporting on abuses committed by Brazilian judicial officials, prosecutors have filed a criminal complaint against our co-founder Glenn Greenwald.

There is no democracy without a free press. We ask advocates for press freedom everywhere to join in condemning the Bolsonaro government’s transparent effort to intimidate and criminalize journalists.

In Open Letter to Brazilian Authorities, 40+ Rights Groups Condemn ‚Attempt to Intimidate and Retaliate Against‘ Glenn Greenwald

A coalition of more than 40 press freedom and human rights groups from across the globe sent a letter Friday to Brazilian authorities condemning cybercrime charges brought against American investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald earlier this week as a clear intimidation effort for his reporting on key members of President Jair Bolsonaro’s government.

Greenwald, who co-founded The Intercept, lives in Rio de Janeiro with his husband, Brazilian Congressman David Miranda, and their family. The letter (pdf) initiated by Reporters Sans Frontières (Reporters Without Borders) and Freedom of the Press Foundation echoes journalists, politicians, and advocates worldwide who have expressed support for Greenwald since Tuesday.

EFF Statement on Glenn Greenwald Charges

21.1.2020

In free societies, journalists play an important role in challenging and criticizing governmental officials and scrutinizing their actions and policies. It is a threat to democracy when authorities use cybercrime laws to punish their critics, as the Brazilian government has done here with Glenn Greenwald, and it discourages journalists from using technology to best serve the public.

The Intercept Condemns Brazilian Criminal Complaint Against Glenn Greenwald as an Attack on Free Press

On Tuesday, a federal prosecutor in Brazil announced a denunciation of American journalist and Intercept co-founder Glenn Greenwald related to his work on a series of stories published on The Intercept and The Intercept Brasil. The denunciation is a criminal complaint that would open the door to further judicial proceedings. It alleges that Greenwald “directly assisted, encouraged and guided” individuals who reportedly obtained access to online chats used by prosecutors and others involved in Operation Car Wash, a yearslong, sprawling anti-corruption investigation that roiled Brazilian politics.

The denunciation will now go before a judge who can approve or deny the request for charges.

One of the tragedies of the Trump era is that liberal outlets – on TV & the internet – have convinced a whole generation of people paying attention to politics for the first time that CIA & FBI are the Good Guys who should be believed, and that questioning them is unpatriotic.

19.10.2019 - 12:11 [ Glenn Greenwald ‏/ Twitter ]

Anyone who criticizes Hillary or establishment Dems is instantly branded a Kremlin asset with nothing else needed. Tulsi endorsed Bernie in 2016 & quit DNC in protest of its rigging. Therefore she’s a traitor & Kremlin asset. Indescribably sick and deplorable.

13.10.2019 - 14:25 [ Glenn Greenwald / Twitter ]

It’s not an exaggeration to say that anyone who criticizes the Democratic Party, the DNC or US foreign policy (as supported by the CIA/NSA) is instantly, and for that reason alone, viewed as an agent of Moscow. They don’t even hide their McCarthyism: it’s the explicit formula:

13.10.2019 - 14:01 [ Glenn Greenwald / Twitter ]

This NYT article is so perfect: it’s the exact formula used by DNC-friendly media to smear anyone who it views as adversary: scream RUSSIA & NAZI over & over – no matter what the person’s views are – and your work is done. Look at Tulsi’s views which make her a FSB agent & Nazi:

WATCH: Glenn Greenwald Explains the Political Earthquake in Brazil Caused by Our Ongoing Exposés

The archive we received from our source is vast, and contains many more explosive stories yet to be reported. Just last night, we published another story exposing even more serious improprieties by Judge Moro, widely regarded as the anchor of legitimacy for the Bolsonaro government, that has led for more calls for him to resign. Because of the importance but also complexity of these issues for those outside of Brazil, we created a video explaining what this archive is about, what these revelations mean, and why the consequences of our reporting are so significant not only for Brazil but for the entire democratic world.

Watch: Interview With Democratic Congresswoman and 2020 Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard

Gabbard has compiled a record on domestic policy questions that places her squarely within the left populist wing of the party — from advocating Medicare for All, a national $15 an hour minimum wage, various free college programs, and even participating in anti-pipeline Standing Rock protests in North Dakota. Yet her aggressive criticisms of the pieties of the bipartisan foreign policy community — particularly her harsh criticism of regime change operations from Iraq and Libya, to Syria and Venezuela, and her warnings about escalating tensions with Russia and China and the dangers of a “new Cold War” — have further cemented her status as party outsider and heretic from the perspective of Washington Democratic insiders.

The Cult of Authority

(7.3.2018) Believe it or not, I’m a fan of Glenn Greenwald, who is one of the very few celebrity journalists who has had the guts to consistently challenge the ridiculous “Russiagate” narrative from the start. And just because The Intercept is owned by a neoliberal oligarch who backed a fascist coup in the Ukraine, micro-financed a few Indians to death, and employs a personal security detail of ex-Secret Service agents and State Department types who will fly him to safety in his private jet in the event of imminent zombie apocalpyse, that doesn’t mean The Intercept staff doesn’t publish important investigative journalism.

No, what struck me as I was suffering through this debate was how utterly divorced from reality it was, whatever “reality” might mean anymore. Watching Greenwald, Risen, and Scahill sitting there, like rational people, “debating” whether Donald Trump might be part of some convoluted Russian conspiracy to destroy America and Western democracy, I felt like I was finally having one of those apocryphal LSD flashbacks.
