Part 1: NPR Attempts To Undermine WikiLeaks’ Credibility With Deliberate, Brazen Lie

These deep state propaganda networks have got to go. America’s entire oppressive system is held together by mass media psy-ops and establishment propaganda narratives; if we can sufficiently disrupt public trust in these heinous institutions there may yet be the possibility of democracy and freedom in America someday. 

Caitlin Johnstone, Medium

May 17, 2017 | As if we needed another reason to want the legacy media to die screaming all alone in an ill-reputed nursing home, National Public Radio has just added one more to the planet-sized pile. NPR, which just Wednesday released an anti-WikiLeaks attack editorial disguised as a movie review, has made a deliberate attempt to tarnish WikiLeaks’ 100% perfect record of authentic and accurately-vetted releases by going out of its way to report that the publishing organization had posted nine gigabytes of partially inauthentic documents.

Don’t let anyone tell you that this cannot be done. I don’t respect pessimism here anymore; there’s no valid reason to be pessimistic in a completely unprecedented situation. 

Caitlin JohnstoneMedium

May 4, 2017 | I am going to keep hammering and hammering on this point until I see that it has taken root in American consciousness: the single best way to take down the oligarchy is by aggressively and relentlessly attacking its propaganda engine. People appreciate my cutesy little analysis pieces on current events and my rude nicknames for corporate Democrats, but if there was one idea I could implore you all to ingest and circulate, this would be it.

http://riseuptimes.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/images.jpg?w=225 It is clearer now than ever before that democracy is functionally nonexistent in America. In an unapologetically strict two-party system, the DNC is openly communicating to the public that it considers itself a private establishment under no obligation to provide the public with a legitimate Democratic primary. On the other side of the aisle the purported nationalist who the people supposedly elected has been acting more and more like the neocon globalists that his grassroots supporters despise. No matter how you vote, the plutocrats and their multinational corporations and banks win, and the American people lose. This is settled beyond dispute for anyone who’s been paying attention. We tried all the political doors, and they’re all bolted shut.

Here's the gist; riddle me this: 

How is a Train like the Internet?

They're both common carriers!  

You buy your ticket and decide where you want to go on the train.

You buy your Internet service provider and decide where you want to go on the Internet. 

But that could end in August.

Big Telecoms like Verizon, Comcast and AT&T don't want to just provide Internet service, they want to control the content too - slowing down, diverting or even shutting down our access to the open internet we know and love. 

Imagine being on a train and all of a sudden, you can't get off at your stop - or it takes you twice as long to get there, and costs twice as much. 

That's why we're asking all of you internet users out there to come together on July 12th to spread the word at your local train or metro stations about the importance of an open and accessible internet - just like an open and accessible public transportation system. 

These actions will coincide with an Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality. 

We need our voices to be heard online and off. 

  http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Fight%20Back.jpgSo sign up here and via the button below to spread the word at your local train station. We'll send you fliers that show the graphic above and information on Net Neutrality and how to get involved in the fight to Save the Internet!

We must rise together quickly again to defend the Internet!

Solidarity,

Popular Resistance

Popular Resistance seeks to aid in bringing movements for peace, justice, economic fairness and environmental protection together into an independent, nonviolent and diverse movement that can end the power of concentrated wealth, shift power to the people and put human needs before corporate greed.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DEQpAYjVoAQCzqF.jpg 07/09/2017 | Chris Uhlmann, political editor for the Australian Broadcast Corporation, didn’t mince any words when reporting on President Donald Trump at the G-20 summit. 

The newsman’s two-minute broadcast centered entirely on the president’s awkward performance at the international conference and what it meant for the United States as a world power. To Uhlmann, it means nothing good. And the clip, which the Australian outlet tweetedhas resonated soundly with a lot of people.

We must disrupt the "common sense" that is produced in mainstream cultural apparatuses and that serves as glue for the rise of right-wing populism. This is not merely a call for a third political party. Any vision for this movement must reject the false notion that capitalism and democracy are synonymous. Democratic socialism is once again moving a generation of young people. We need to accelerate this movement for a radical democracy before it is too late.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/under-newspaper.jpg June 30, 2017 | The internet was in an uproar Thursday as people took to decrying President Donald Trump for his childish and cruel remarks about the late globalist billionaire, Zbigniew Brzezinski’s daughter, Mika.

While the mainstream media drug Trump through the mud, ad nauseam, for his uncouth and immature comments, their silence — on issues that actually matter — was deafening.

In a most profound tweet on Thursday, Julian Assange weighed in on the issue, making an immensely powerful statement and calling out the ridiculous nature of corporate media and their ability to distract from the crimes of the establishment.

June 9, 2017 | Two years ago we accomplished something amazing together. Nearly 4 million people across the country called on the FCC to put in place strong Net Neutrality rules to protect the internet as a tool for innovation, creativity and free speech. And we won.

Now the free and open internet is once again under attack as Trump's FCC, led by Chairman Ajit Pai, is threatening to roll back these crucial protections. If Pai gets his way, massive cable and phone companies will have the power to control what we see and do online, creating “fast lanes” for those that can afford to pay — and leaving the rest of us in the dust.

We can’t let this happen. Send your comment to the FCC today to protect Net Neutrality.

Net Neutrality rules have governed the internet since its inception, creating a space for free expression to flourish and for startups and small businesses to challenge huge legacy companies. Abandoning control of the internet to the handful of companies that provide broadband service would allow them to bury the speech of those they don't agree with and kill competition from startups before they even get off the ground.

Despite Pai's claim that he supports Net Neutrality, the proceeding he opened last month attacks not only the legal authority underpinning the rules — which is absolutely vital for enforcing them — but seeks to overturn these protections altogether. If Pai gets his way, Net Neutrality will be gone for good and people will be left with only the empty promises of big cable companies to protect them online.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Fight%20Back.jpgIf we want to defeat this attack on Net Neutrality, we’ll need all of you to speak out. Send your comment to the FCC today and tell it to leave Net Neutrality alone.

This administration has gone after so many crucial consumer protections that we have fought for, from ending exploitative prison-phone rates to banning your internet service provider from selling your personal data. The Trump team isn’t working for anyone besides the corporate lobbyists and millionaires that are filling the administration.

We’ve fought and won this battle before and we can do so again. But it’s going to take all of us working together. I will do my best working with my colleagues in the Senate to protect internet freedom, but we’ll need all of your voices engaged and ready to fight.

Thanks so much—

P.S. The Trump administration isn’t working for anyone besides corporate lobbyists and millionaires. We can’t let it destroy Net Neutrality — send your comment to the FCC today.

06/14/2017 | As information filters in about the gunman who opened fire Wednesday on Republican congressmen at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, news organizations weigh their responsibility to inform the public of a newsworthy event against the possibility that the reporting will inspire future attacks.

A second shooting, later in the day at a San Francisco UPS facility, wasn’t related, but it only heightened the news frenzy.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Bomb%20with%20US%20Flag.jpg May 22, 2017 | The Trump administration wrapped up a weapons deal with the Saudi Arabian government this week that will be worth up to $350 billion over the next ten years. News of the deal came as Trump visited Riyadh and paid fealty to one of the United States’ most enduring allies in the Middle East.

The vast majority of the reports on the topic, however, omitted a rather key piece of context—namely, whom the weapons will be used to kill.

The famine and brutal two-year-long war in Yemen being waged by the Saudis that has killed over 10,000 civilians wasn’t mentioned once in reports of the $300 billion deal to Saudi Arabia by CNN (5/19/17, 5/20/17), Washington Post  (5/19/17), The Independent (5/19/17), New York Daily News (5/20/17), CNBC (5/20/17, 5/22/17), CBS News (5/20/17), Business Insider (5/20/17), Time (5/20/17), Fox News (5/20/17), Reuters (5/20/17), ABC News (5/20/17), Fortune Magazine (5/20/17) or Chicago Tribune (5/20/17).
