Lula is a mafia boss, nothing else


Why so many attacks? Tycoons and others (big media owners) are scared to death from Lula opting for a plea bargain. Simple as that!

Conservative justices decide courts cannot protect democracy from gerrymandering
Supreme Court says federal courts don’t have a role in deciding partisan gerrymandering claims

...
Liberal justices were not happy about this:

And we shouldn't be happy about it either. Effectively, SCOTUS decided that no one need protect democracy in the US. This decision goes right along with the sentiment behind Citizens United: Democracy doesn't matter, and whoever holds the power should continue to hold the power, the will of the people be damned.
So politicians will continue to be free to choose their electorate, rather than the electorate choosing their representatives. Politicians in the US need not even to represent the people, a reality now acknowledged, embraced, enshrined, and immortalized by SCOTUS.

I share articles about Assange not because I think he's a hero, even if he is, just like Snowdon, Mannning and all the others we never heard about.
I share them because #journalism, #1stAmendement #Constittution #Democracy.
I'm also boycotting the Guardian because of their BS articles on Assange.
 
I do think Assange was biased in how/when he chose to use the information given to him during the 2016 US elections - but if political bias were a crime then every major US news network would have most of their journalists rounded up with Assange.

There is something much more vile at work here than journalistic bias or misconduct. We are watching fascism emerge, and learning that it doesn't slyly slither up, like a serpent before swiftly attacking its prey, no, it walks in the front door of our country, wipes it's feet on the welcome mat, is welcomed in with open arms and sits down to dinner with your family and friends.

The ideology behind protecting journalists, to use another apt metaphor, is the oil on the gears of democracy. Without that lubricant, that flow of critical information to the people, the machine inevitably grinds to a halt.

Metaphor and crafted phrases aside, no matter what your politics may be, or your opinion of Julian Assange, if you're a US citizen (or anyone that values democracy over fascism, really) then this should seem highly disturbing... Show more...
