(Glenn Greenwald) Last week, we published documents that definitively debunked and disproved a claim that numerous media outlets had circulated and affirmed for years: that Edward Snowden lied about where he was during his first 11 days in Hong Kong. Contrary to the fable these outlets dispensed to their readers — that Snowden did not check in to the Mira Hotel on May 21 as he claimed but only did so on June 1, 11 days later — these new documents, obtained from the Mira, prove that Snowden arrived there exactly when he always said, rendering their published stories factually false. Many of these stories had even claimed that anonymous U.S. investigators were unable to find hotel or credit card records for Snowden during these 11 days — exactly the records we just published.
The same day our story was published, the New York Times reporter Charlie Savage — who had previously spent weeks documenting that this claim about Snowden never had any journalistic basis to begin with — confirmed the authenticity of the new documents…
The boast was made during an April 2015 phone conversation, according to farmers and others who say they’ve been sickened by the weed killer. After leaving his job as a manager in the EPA’s pesticide division last year, Jess Rowland has become a central figure in more than 20 lawsuits in the U.S. accusing the company of failing to warn consumers and regulators of the risk that its glyphosate-based herbicide can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
My Commentary: Conspiracy theory? Meddling Russians? Quick, mainstream media monopoly! Tell me who’s to blame for this fake news story, and which government agency to rely on for solutions, so I can resume life in my comfort zone of unquestioning complacency and consumerism!
“Let’s take a trip down memory lane… Tony Blair, February 2003 (lie) ‘There are unquestionably links between al Qaeda and Iraq.’ US President George Bush, September 2002 (lie) ‘The regime has longstanding and continuing ties to terrorist group, and there are Al Qaeda terrorists inside Iraq.’ US Vice-President Dick Cheney, December 2002 (lie) ‘His regime has had high-level contacts with al Qaeda going back a decade and has provided training to al Qaeda terrorists.’ US National Security Advisor, Condoleeza Rice, September 2002 (lie) ‘There clearly are contacts between al Qaeda and Iraq that can be documented; there clearly is testimony that some of the contacts have been important contacts and that there’s a relationship here’ US Secretary of State Colin Powell, February 2003 (lie) ‘Ambition and hatred are enough to bring Iraq and al Qaeda together.’ US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, November 2002 (lie) ‘Within a week, or a month, Saddam could give his WMD to al Qaeda.'”
My Commentary: This fake news led to untold levels of death and destruction… But, pay no attention to such inconvenient facts. Doublethink your way through any cognitive dissonance that may arise, and go back to sheep.
Tammy S.: Is that possible?! No! Don’t send your kids, you’ll regret it!
Diana B.: you have got to be fukken kidding me
Rayn: In Pathocratic America, murdering children is viewed as a respectable and successful business model, to be replicated on a grand scale, whenever possible. Just look at how popular Obama is, even though he daily signs off on the death warrants of countless scores of foreign babies.
Diana B.: abortion is also state sponsored. how many american babies are being cut down with state govnt $$$$
Rayn: Indeed! Obama even recently allocated more funding to the Planned Parenthood eugenics program, and the left cheered it as a victory…
“Birth Control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks — those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” – Margaret Sanger, FOUNDER of Planned Parenthood, and Lifelong Genocidal Eugenicist
Diana B.: SMFH how do all these so-called open minded people feed into the bull$hit?!??!??!?!
Diana B.: by the way, margaret sanger is killary’s idol! 😕
Diana B.: sickening. human life has become so cheap….
Diana B.: or maybe its always been that way? 😕
Rayn: “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” – Margaret Sanger, FOUNDER of Planned Parenthood, and Lifelong Genocidal Eugenicist
(According to the leftists, this paragraph is being taken out of context, and Sanger just wanted to help “negroes” take control of their reproductive rights… through a condescending brainwashing campaign, using paid shills peddling religious trickery… you know… “for their own good”?)
Rayn: Killary is a lizard, to be sure!
Diana B.: Fukin sick! How is this shit still happening in 2016?!?
Rayn: The loudest among humanity appear to be the most historically-illiterate, morally-bankrupt, and yet, strongly-opinionated. And, they gleefully shout down into compliance all those who are too polite, meek, or respectful to challenge the many falsehoods, horrors and fantasies being spewed, as though the volume of their voice, or the resulting silence it elicits, somehow represents evidence of superior logic..
Meanwhile, any time a slick-talking, confident sociopath comes along claiming crimes against humanity to be “scientific,” or “legal,” or “necessary,” way too many are quick to drop to their knees, and eagerly swallow it down…
