US government drops case against Max Blumenthal after jailing journalist on false charges

The Grayzone has learned that Secret Service call logs recorded during the alleged incident were either not kept or destroyed. The mysteriously missing evidence included print documents and radio recordings that may have exposed collusion between Secret Service officers operating under the auspices of the US State Department and violent right-wing hooligans in an operation to besiege peace activists stationed inside Venezuela’s embassy in Washington, DC.

Blumenthal, who is the editor of The Grayzone, was arrested at his home on October 25 by a team of DC cops who had threatened to break down his door. He later learned that he was listed in his arrest warrant as “armed and dangerous,” a rare and completely unfounded designation that placed Blumenthal at risk of severe harm by the police.

White Helmets Whitewash: founder’s death, OPCW scandal lift mask on al-Qaeda’s ally in Syria

We speak to The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal, whose reporting has exposed the White Helmets’ ties to jihadists groups and its use as a PR tool for Western military intervention in Syria.

“We don’t know if there’s a cover-up around his [Le Mesurier’s] death — I can’t go that far,” Blumenthal says. “The real cover-up is around his life, as he’s being celebrated everywhere from the Guardian to the New York Times as this heroic figure, this kind of Gandhi of conflict stabilization; when his legacy is actually very dark and stained with blood.”

‘This charge is 100% false’: Grayzone editor Max Blumenthal arrested months after reporting on Venezuelan opposition violence

“This charge is a 100 percent false, fabricated, bogus, untrue, and malicious lie,” Blumenthal declared. “It is clearly part of a campaign of political persecution designed to silence me and the The Grayzone for our factual journalism exposing the deceptions, corruption and violence of the far-right Venezuelan opposition.”

The arrest warrant was five months old. According to an individual familiar with the case, the warrant for Blumenthal’s arrest was initially rejected. Strangely, this false charge was revived months later without the defendant’s knowledge.

Max Blumenthal Arrested: Accused by Venezuelan Opposition

A team of police officers from the U.S. capital appeared at Blumenthal’s door shortly after 9 a.m., demanding entry and threatening to break down its door.

In addition, several officers had taken up positions surrounding his home as if they were prepared for a SWAT-style raid.

By the way, guess who’s next in line to be smeared by corporatist Dem elites as a Russian agent? Hint: he’s a Jewish socialist who once visited the USSR and Nicaragua. This is just a pilot program.

#Toilettengate: Gysi, die Israel-Kritiker und der Geist der Stasi – Was auf dem Flur des Bundestags passierte

Es zeigt wie Sheen und Blumenthal zusammen mit den Linke-Bundestagsabgeordneten Inge Höger, Annette Groth, Heike Hänsel und weiteren Personen auf dem Fluren des Bundestages über ein nicht zustande gekommenes Treffen mit Gregor Gysi reden. Laut wird es als Fraktionspressesprecher Hendrik Thalheim den Flur betritt. »Warum kann mich Herr Gysi öffentlich als Antisemiten denunzieren«, fragt der in Israel lebende Autor Sheen.

Als Frage bleibt, ob das wenigstens als physikalischer Beweis eines Paralleluniversums durchgeht.

‘Regime change begins at home’ – Max Blumenthal speaks in Venezuelan presidential palace

I am representing, alongside my colleagues Anya Parampil and Ben Norton, an independent media organization with no formal relationship to this government or any other government.

We are here because our government, and a corporate media which acts as an arm of its foreign policy, is pursuing a dangerous and catastrophic policy of siege and regime change.

We have seen the catastrophes that this same policy has caused for Central America, for Iraq, for Libya, for Syria, and for so many people across the world, in Korea, and elsewhere. And we are here to renounce this policy.

We are here as citizens and also as journalists, to break the blockade that our government has put not only on this government, but on relations between the American people and the Venezuelan people seeking to build a new society through the Bolivarian Revolution.

US Regime Change Blueprint Proposed Venezuelan Electricity Blackouts as ‘Watershed Event’

A September 2010 memo by a U.S.-funded soft power organization that helped train Venezuelan coup leader Juan Guaidó and his allies identifies the potential collapse of the country’s electrical sector as “a watershed event” that “would likely have the impact of galvanizing public unrest in a way that no opposition group could ever hope to generate.”
