Then there’s the fact that Sanders was on unemployment until his mid-30s, and that he stole electricity from a neighbor after failing to pay his bills
Ouch, assuming I read Global Research, sick burn.
Weiss is a chicken hawk crying crocodile tears - and he can't write for shit. Journalism is such piss poor career for new comers, unethical writers will go gain experience shilling at NGOs/non-profits/think-tanks. Then they get real jobs at new organisations because they have 'experience' doing 'important work'.
I'm talking about writers like the Daily Beast's Michael Weiss - a 'Russia expert' who doesn't even speak Russian, who pivoted to being a Syria expert. This guy is a fellow of the Atlantic Council - which receives money from the Turkish Army, Turkish Petroleum and Saudi Arabia. He's a fucking shill. Fuck him, fuck Saudi Arabia, fuck the USA and the 100 scumbag UK Labour MPs who voted down a plan to stop arming the KSA.
I've been hard on Russell on Twitter in the run-up to the election. It has been hard watching people on the NZ left re-tweet writers who are egging on war with Syria. It isn't just loons who see a no fly zone as the beginning of a war against Russia. Before anyone asks, no, I don't think Trump was a better option.
The Putin hysteria has also been awful and is one of the fakest news stories of the year. Yes, Russia deploys propaganda, and yes, there is admiration on the right for the tough-guy/thug images of both Trump and Putin. But many establishment writers (IE, working for largish organisations) in the US went insane hyping up the story. Here is Kurt Eichenwald writing for Newsweek:
Western intelligence and law enforcement say tens of thousands of people have been working with Russia on its hacking and disinformation campaign for many years. They include propagandists and cyberoperatives stationed in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk, located in the southwestern part of Siberia. Operations have also been conducted in the United States, primarily out of New York City, Washington, D.C., and Miami. Those involved include a large number of Russian émigrés, as well as Americans and other foreign nationals. Intelligence operations in Europe and the U.S. have determined that the money these émigrés receive for their work is disguised as payments from a Russian pension system. One U.S. official says there is evidence many of these Americans and foreign nationals do not know they are part of Russia’s propaganda operation.
This is race baiting bullshit. Trump talks about Muslims and 'Islamic Extremism' in much the same way.
