But not everyone agrees with her apocalyptic message and lack of clear-cut suggestions for change. | Among the critics is Trump and some of his voters. On Thursday, the president held off directly attacking Thunberg but retweeted a post from one of his supporters calling the climate crusader…

rt.com | 2019-10-03
Twitter has yanked a clip featuring a photo of Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and a Ukrainian gas exec set to a Nickelback song after the meme was tweeted by US President Donald Trump and went viral. | The platform cited copyright in its decision to remove the video, which opens with Biden denying he had ever spoken to Hunter about his "overseas business dealings," then segues through just a few seconds of the Nickelback video before zeroing in on a framed photo of the two Bidens with a "Ukrainian gas exec" and unidentified fourth man. Hearts appear drawn around their faces. | LOOK AT THIS P…

Snowden rips MSM & US politicians for hypocrisy in 'supporting whistleblowers'
rt.com | 2019-10-03

He singled out the ongoing legal case of analyst-turned-leaker Daniel Hale. | "Unbelievable that in a moment where politicians are making daily media s…

'For futur of you're famly': FBI seeks to recruit 'Russian spies' with hilariously inept Facebook ad
rt.com | 2019-10-03
The FBI has sought to recruit "Russian spies" in Washington, DC through a series of Facebook ads — suggesting a degree of desperation when it comes to counter-intelligence assets, but also a serious lack of copy editing talent. | "The FBI obtains the best intelligence to combat threats through information provided by the public. If you have information that can help the FBI, visit us," the three ads launched on September 11 urge in English. They are accompanied by stock photos with trite captions in Russian. | "Time to build Bridges," says one, over a drawing of a man crossing a bridge. | "Isn't it time…

NYT Perp Walks a Bronx Neighborhood
Josmar Trujillo | fair.org | 2019-10-02
"Sources" gave NY1 reporter Dean Meminger (Twitter, 9/29/19) an entirely inaccurate account of a NYPD "friendly fire" incident. | Two people died in a hail of bullets last weekend in the Bronx.

VIRAL VIDEO of driverless cart SPINNING dangerously close to plane… and getting knocked out by quick-thinking worker
rt.com | 2019-10-01
A hilariously out-of-control plane catering cart spun furiously around on the tarmac of O'Hare Airport, Chicago, coming alarmingly close to a parked jet, as the stunned ground crew watched on in alarm and dismay. | Footage posted online by a passenger filming from the terminal on Monday captured the bizarre scene as the vehicle, somehow without its driver, went rogue.

Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-09-27
Demonstrations continued in Egypt Friday, with thousands taking to the streets to demand the resignation of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi over accusations of corruption. Nearly 2,000 people have been arrested over the past week amid protests in Cairo and other cities.
