Ilhan Omar under attack for telling truth about Israel lobby | The Electronic Intifada

Posted by M. C. on February 13, 2019

Omar was talking about the Israeli government, not Jews.

Like her or not, in this case she is correct.

There is a saying in Washington-If you want to lose your job fast, criticize the Israeli government.

Remember the Liberty!

Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is under fierce attack from Chelsea Clinton and other Republican and Democratic establishment figures for voicing a fundamental truth: much of Congress is muzzled when it comes to Israel by the powerful lobby group AIPAC.

On Sunday, journalist Glenn Greenwald highlighted a news story about how Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy wants to punish Omar, and fellow Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, for their criticisms of Israel.

In a perverse move, McCarthy tried to equate the two women’s support for Palestinian rights with notorious Republican Congressman Steve King’s white supremacism.

“It’s stunning how much time US political leaders spend defending a foreign nation even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans,” Greenwald tweeted.

Omar then retweeted Greenwald, adding the comment, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” the title of a rap song by Puff Daddy.

“Benjamins” is a slang term for $100 bills, a reference to the portrait of Benjamin Franklin that is on the banknotes.

Then, Batya Ungar-Sargon, the opinion editor of the The Forwardchimed in, challenging Omar to explain who she “thinks is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel.”

Ungar-Sargon also accused Omar of tweeting an “anti-Semitic trope.”

Omar’s answer to Ungar-Sargon’s question was succinct: “AIPAC!”

That’s when the floodgates opened….

Be seeing you

Glenn Greenwald: CNN Dodging ‘Serious Ethical and Journalistic Questions’ About Lanny Davis Fake News Scandal

Posted by M. C. on August 28, 2018

Master Liars – There is a reason it’s called the Clinton News Network

https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/08/28/glenn-greenwald-cnn-dodging-serious-ethical-journalistic-questions-lanny-davis-fake-news-scandal/

by Matthew Boyle

In an explosive piece laying out the landscape of an ethical minefield through which CNN is navigating poorly, Greenwald in the headline of the story accuses CNN of lying to its audience in a piece authored by Bernstein; former Barack Obama administration official and CNN chief national security correspondent Jim Sciutto, and CNN researcher Marshall Cohen: “CNN, Credibly Accused of Lying to its Audience About a Key Claim in its Blockbuster Cohen Story, Refuses to Comment.”

As Breitbart News has reported, the entire core of the piece from July from Bernstein, Sciutto, and Cohen is entirely fake news. CNN reported, using anonymous sources, that Michael Cohen–President Trump’s former personal attorney who just pleaded guilty to a number of charges brought by the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York–was willing to testify that President Trump knew in advance of a summer 2016 meeting between several senior Trump officials and a Russian attorney with Kremlin links. Cohen’s own attorney, Lanny Davis, later undercut that narrative, publicly claiming on the record nearly a month later that it was not true. Then Davis admitted he was a source for the CNN story–and that he had provided inaccurate information to the network.

Here’s how Greenwald puts it:

Bush, Obama, Clapper and the NSA-Lying Liars and Their Lies-The Bright Side

Posted by M. C. on June 20, 2013

Fisa court oversight: a look inside a secret and empty process

If there can be bright side to the NSA revelations it is when Obama and Clapper tell another whopper and the lie is exposed within a few days.   It has been happening like clockwork.  When criminals like these are caught I often do not what makes me more disgusted, the crime or how stupid the culprit was in getting caught.

Obama and Clapper are not stupid, they just don’t care.  They think the unwashed masses will just buy their line.  Most do unfortunately.  Hopefully that will be changing with the growing abandonment of mainstream media use of the internet.

The bright light has been cast yet again by Glenn Greenwald and the Guardian.  Glenn hold wasn’t kidding when he said there is much more to come. Read the rest of this entry »
