Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, accusing the former Secretary of State of defamation for remarks characterizing the Democratic presidential candidate as a Russian asset.Filed on Wednesday in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, Gabbard’s attorneys allege that Clinton “smeared” Gabbard’s “political and personal reputation,” according to The Hill.Tulsi Gabbard is suing Hillary Clinton and the first page of the filing is WILD AF pic.twitter.com/DXHLPfy016— Alec Sears (@alec_sears) January 22, 2020“Tulsi Gabbard is a loyal American civil servant who has also dedicated her life to protecting the safety of all Americans,” said Gabbard’s attorney Brian Dunne in a statement.“Rep. Gabbard’s presidential campaign continues to gain momentum, but she has seen her political and personal reputation smeared and her candidacy intentionally damaged by Clinton’s malicious and demonstrably false remarks.”In a podcast released in October, Clinton said she thought Republicans were “grooming” a Democratic presidential candidate for a third-party bid. She also described the candidate as a favorite of the Russians.Clinton did not name the candidate but it was clear she was speaking about Gabbard.“They’re also going to do third party. I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said.“She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset, I mean totally. They know they can’t win without a third party candidate,” Clinton said. –The HillRead the filing here.Republished from ZeroHedge.com with permissionThe post Tulsi Gabbard Sues Hillary Clinton Over “Russian Asset” Remark appeared first on We Are Change.
The Empire’s War on Oppositional Journalism Continues to EscalatePosted: 21 Jan 2020 08:44 PM PSTJournalist Glenn Greenwald has been charged by the Bolsonaro government in Brazil with the same prosecutorial angle used by the US to target WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.Per The New York Times:Citing intercepted messages between Mr. Greenwald and the hackers, prosecutors say the journalist played a “clear role in facilitating the commission of a crime.”For instance, prosecutors contend that Mr. Greenwald encouraged the hackers to delete archives that had already been shared with The Intercept Brasil, in order to cover their tracks.Prosecutors also say that Mr. Greenwald was communicating with the hackers while they were actively monitoring private chats on Telegram, a messaging app. The complaint charged six other individuals, including four who were detained last year in connection with the cellphone hacking.This argument is essentially indistinguishable from the argument currently being used by the Trump administration in charging Assange with 17 counts of violating the Espionage Act. The US Department of Justice alleges that Assange attempted to provide Private Manning with advice and assistance in covering her tracks while leaking documents she already had access to, therefore making Assange party to a conspiracy against the United States.It is not surprising that Brazil is advancing the same war on journalism we’ve been seeing in the US, UK, Australia and France. With the election of the overtly fascist Jair Bolsonaro in October 2018 (an election whose corrupt foundations were exposed by Greenwald’s reporting with The Intercept Brasil), the Brazilian government moved into full alignment with the the US-centralized empire, which was why his inauguration was enthusiastically celebrated by characters like Donald TrumpMike PompeoJohn Bolton and Benjamin Netanyahu.In exactly the same way we saw a coordination between the US, UK, Sweden, Ecuador and Australia to immobilize, and then silence, and then imprison Julian Assange, we are seeing a uniform movement toward silencing oppositional journalism throughout the entire US-centralized empire. This is because a rising China and the increasing coziness of the cluster of nations which have resisted absorption into the imperial blob greatly imperil the USA’s position as the unipolar global dominator, meaning that the empire needs to quickly shore up global control in order to avoid being surpassed and replaced by other power structures.In order to accomplish this there’s going to have to be a lot of nefarious behavior. A lot of military escalations, a lot of CIA coups, a lot of bullying and subversion, and a whole lot of propaganda to grease the wheels of public consent. Such large, frantic, flailing movements can be easily exposed by a free press, which is precisely why the free press is being clamped down upon now. The empire is setting all these legal precedents against oppositional journalism because it fully intends to use those precedents in the future. It fully intends to use those legal precedents in the future because it knows it’s going to have to make things ugly.Whenever a nation’s government capitulates to the empire, it gets absorbed into the blob. The bigger the blob of empire gets, the stronger it gets. The stronger it gets, the more capable it becomes of absorbing other not-yet-absorbed nations. https://t.co/KIZboo3xwN— Caitlin Johnstone ? (@caitoz) March 19, 2019This is all being done to prevent the public from gaining a clear understanding of what’s really going on in their world, because if the public had a clear understanding of what’s going on in their world, the empire would forever lose its ability to control them and rule them.Whoever controls the narrative controls the world. The imperialists understand this. The public, by and large, do not. And the imperialists intend to keep it that way.Glenn Greenwald has spent the last three years being falsely smeared as a stooge of authoritarian governments while he was actually doing more damage to an authoritarian government than all of his critics combined. Public trust in oppressive institutions (like the oppressive institutions that empire loyalists have been protecting by smearing Greenwald as a Kremlin agent and a Putin puppet) can be severely weakened by the exposure of their dark underbellies to the light of truth.The imperialists know this, and they are determined not to allow it to continue. Hence their persecution of Assange, and hence their persecution of Greenwald.Republished from CaitlinJohnstone.com with permissionThe post The Empire’s War on Oppositional Journalism Continues to Escalate appeared first on We Are Change.
“Hypocrisy is Everywhere”: Hillary Clinton Defends Relationship With WeinsteinPosted: 21 Jan 2020 07:09 PM PSTAfter months of teasing the public about the possibility of a last-minute presidential run – or emerging as the Democratic Party’s would-be savior during a brokered convention – Hillary Clinton must have finally decided that politics isn’t her game.Because during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the two-time failed presidential candidate and former secretary of state embraced one of the most controversial opinion that one could possibly take: Defending her relationship with former Hollywood sudio head and super-producer Harvey Weinstein.And that wasn’t the only jaw-dropping comment: Clinton also insisted that “Nobody likes” Bernie Sanders, who is, according to polls, one of the most popular politicians in the country.Though Clinton, who is out on a media tour ahead of the premier of a four-part docu-series entitled “Hillary”, once again disavowed Weinstein, adding that she was “shocked and appalled” at his actions, she refused to apologize for being friends with the Democratic bundler and influential donor, arguing that their relationship was “something that everybody thought made sense.”Many uber-feminists and other die-hard Clinton have already probably forgotten that Clinton waited five days before issuing a statement condemning Weinstein, seemingly waiting to see how the chips would fall before picking a side. She also deflected criticism of Weinstein by trying to turn the world’s attention to President Trump with the famous lineAsked if Clinton had any regrets about her long friendship with Weinstein, she replied that she and her aides had no idea that he was a sexual predator“How could we have known?” Clinton said. “He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense.”Of course, anybody who has been paying attention to the Weinstein scandal should know that this is probably a bald-faced lie: Both the NYT and the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow reported that Weinstein’s sexual aggression was an open secret, particularly among his rich and powerful peers, a group that obviously includes Clinton.Since 1992, Weinstein and his family have given nearly $1.5 million to various politicians, almost exclusively Democrats.Clinton said her relationship with Weinstein would have been “very different” if she had known about the allegations: “Of course, if all of us had known what we know now, it would have affected our behavior.”Of course, it wouldn’t be a Hillary Clinton interview if she didn’t invoke the name of her one-time rival, President Trump. Hypocrisy is everywhere – even in the Oval Office, Clinton said.“I love this word ‘gobsmacked’ because, yes, look, hypocrisy is everywhere,” Clinton said. “Look at the current occupant of the White House for Lesson A.”That would be true even if she won in 2016: Because let’s not forget about all the women that Clinton helped intimidate into silence after their dalliances with her husband.Weinstein’s criminal trial over charges of rape and assault is about to get underway at a Manhattan court.Republished from ZeroHedge.com with permissionThe post “Hypocrisy is Everywhere”: Hillary Clinton Defends Relationship With Weinstein appeared first on We Are Change.
