FBI spied on Albert Einstein for 22 years until his death

The FBI started spying on renowned German-born scientist Albert Einstein when he moved to America in 1933, shortly before Adolf Hitler rose to power. Agents listened to the physicist’s phone calls and searched his mail and trash, suspecting he was a Soviet spy. The surveillance, totalling 1,800 pages, ended with Einstein’s death on April 18, 1955, with no supporting evidence.

Deeply concerning details that have emerged include evidence that family members of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi were targeted with Pegasus software before and after his murder in Istanbul on 2 October 2018 by Saudi operatives,despite repeated denials from NSO Group that its products were used to target Khashoggi or his family members.

Israeli children should not have to spend the night scared in bomb shelters, as many are doing tonight. Palestinian children should not have to grow up under the constant violence and oppression of occupation, as so many do, and have done.

The United States must call for an immediate cease-fire and an end to provocative and illegal settlement activity. And we must also recommit to working with Israelis and Palestinians to finally end this conflict.

We must never surrender to the New Normal

This time, dreams of normality are treated as ‘dysfunction’, as a species of ‘denial’. What makes this concerted erasure of expectancy even more striking is that we are in the middle of the most impressive rollout of vaccination in human history. In the UK, thanks to an army of health workers and volunteers, we have vaccinated more than 10million people. The early evidence suggests vaccination protects against serious illness and very likely stems the spread of Covid-19, too. And yet even in this moment, even during this extraordinary campaign of human ingenuity against nature’s whimsical, destructive viruses, much commentary has turned against the aspiration to normality, against the dream of restored liberty.

Empty roads during curfew; meanwhile riots escalate in Urk

Reportedly, the youngsters took to the streets, played loud music, and drank alcohol. At least a hundred young people had gathered in the center around 9 p.m. From there, they marched through the streets chanting “dictatorship.” They were addressed by someone with a megaphone who said, “today is the first day that we let you know that we are done.” The protestors also lit fireworks with which they attacked the police.

The police struggled to bring the situation on the control and had to call in the riot control unit. What followed was a game of ‘cat and mouse’, in which the police with long batons ran through the streets and groups of protestors repeatedly managed to escape via side streets.

Simply advocating sanity over insanity gets you shoved out of sight and out of mind by the narrative managers responsible for preserving a world order that is stark raving insane from top to bottom. If you oppose the systems exploited by the ruling power establishment which murders, exploits and oppresses people at home and abroad all day every day while destroying the very ecosystem we depend on for survival, then you are branded a lunatic and your wrongthink quarantined so as not to infect the mainstream herd.

This dynamic is made possible by the fact that the powerful are constantly pouring their wealth and influence into manufacturing the collective delusion that madness is sanity and sickness is health.

He pressed ahead with a controversial general election on June 21 that most opposition parties had long planned to boycott, saying they did not want to legitimize a process that they feel is gamed in Mr. Vucic’s favor.

And to Mr. Vucic’s critics, his decision first to ease restrictions ahead of a vote that was certain to increase his power — and then reinstate them soon after — felt like he was playing politics with public health.

The protest while triggered by the new #COVID measures, are really caused by the increasing gov authoritarianism over the years. Most recently, COVID infection numbers have been manipulated in order to gain political advantage in the GE on June 21st. #Belgrade #Serbia

Video: Let Us Free Ourselves From the Virus of War

International Conference on the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Italy and the End of World War II organised by the Italian Committee No War, No Nato and Global Research.

The great Italian journalist Giulietto Chiesa passed away a few hours after the realization of this Conference.

His last words (Panel 4 and Conclusion) focussed on Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Information, and Freedom for Julian Assange.

“It is essential to join all our forces together, which are significant, “not so small” but there is a fundamental flaw: that of being divided, unable to speak with a single voice. We need an means or an instrument to speak to the millions of citizens who want to know.”

This was Giulietto Chiesa’s Appeal, an act in solidarity pointing to the need to break down social divisions and establish a grassroots movement, nationally and internationally.

His last words were confirmed by the fact that, immediately after the streaming, the online conference was “obscured” because the following content had been identified by the so-called YouTube community as “inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.” That’s what is commonly referred to as Censorship.

The important word in ‘democratic socialism’ is ‘democratic’

And on this, Dr. Martin Luther King — often smeared as a “red” or a communist — was very clear. In 1966, he confided to his staff:

“You can’t talk about solving the economic problem of the Negro without talking about billions of dollars. You can’t talk about ending the slums without first saying profit must be taken out of the slums. You’re really tampering and getting on dangerous ground because you are messing with folk then. You are messing with captains of industry. Now this means that we are treading in difficult water, because it really means that we are saying that something is wrong with capitalism. There must be a better distribution of wealth, and maybe America must move toward a democratic socialism.”

Lettre de Jean-Luc Mélenchon au Premier ministre

Jean-Luc Mélenchon vient d’adresser au Premier ministre le courrier suivant :

Paris, le 22 mars 2018,

Monsieur le Premier ministre,

Mercredi 20 mars, votre gouvernement a annoncé la mobilisation des militaires de la force Sentinelle dans le cadre des prochaines manifestations des « gilets jaunes » qui auront lieu demain samedi 23 mars. Cette décision a sidéré de nombreux républicains. En effet, le maintien de l’ordre n’est pas une tâche dévolue à l’armée. L’armée a pour charge de défendre la nation contre ses ennemis. En aucun cas des manifestants ne peuvent être considérés comme des ennemis de l’intérieur.

Ce vendredi 22 mars, le gouverneur militaire de Paris, le général Bruno Leray, a déclaré que ces militaires pourront « aller jusqu’à l’ouverture du feu ». De tels propos sont graves et nourrissent une escalade mortelle. Ils mettent la cohésion du pays et celle du lien entre l’armée et la Nation à la merci de n’importe quelle provocation.

This is what a militarized police state looks like. Watch as #Macron thugs manhandle an 18 year old #GiletsJaunes protester to the ground for the egregious crime of playing his drum. Oh, and just for good measure – they chuck the drum like it’s a piece of trash. #Caen #ActeXVII

GILETS JAUNES : LES BLESSÉS QUI DÉRANGENT

(27.2.2019) Ils ont perdu un œil, une main, un bout de visage, ou leurs dents. En une fraction de seconde, leur vie a été bouleversée, parfois brisée parce qu’ils marchaient pacifiquement au sein ou aux abords d’une manifestation. Ils sont plus de 2000 selon les chiffres officiels à avoir été blessés par les forces de l’ordre pendant les manifestations des gilets jaunes. Nous sommes allés à la rencontre d’une trentaine de ces blessés graves à travers la France au cours des dernières semaines.
