text US brands RT a “foreign agent:” A chilling move against free speech by Andre Damon (WSWS repost)
Under pressure from the US government, RT America has announced that it would register as a “foreign agent” under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). This sets a precedent for delegitimizing RT as a news source, to intimidate its journalists and guests, and for taking similar actions against other news outlets. It also lays groundwork for labeling a much broader range of news outlets to blacklist and criminalize them based on their political views....

According to a new book by a top Democratic insider, Donna Brazile, the Hillary Clinton campaign used its financial resources to take control of the Democratic National Committee more than six months before the first primary vote, using the party machinery to insure Clinton won the presidential nomination.

This week’s congressional hearings on “extremist content” on the Internet mark a new stage in a McCarthyite witch hunt aimed at creating a political climate in which left-wing organizations and figures are demonized as agents of the Kremlin who are essentially engaged in treasonous activity deserving of criminal prosecution. (Google, Facebook and Twitter are already engaged in censorship.) This drive to destroy freedom of speech must be opposed! It is the spearhead for the dismantling of d...

text Darkness over the White House by Conrad Schuhler
Trump is rightly criticized by the old elites: trade sanctions against Russia and the EU, fire and fury against North Korea and justification for white fascists. Generals have assumed power in the government alongside multi-millionaires. The coup in the Ukraine was staged by the US with $5 billion. A state that appoints itself judge over subjects from other nations is illegal under international law....

The US president sounds like a warmonger. When will the inflammatory words trigger a nuclear chain reaction? The Roman emperor Caligula could help in understanding Trump.
