Caitlin Johnstone Rogue Journalist
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 12, 2018 at 23:24
People try to tell me that there is no hope. That the status quo is too fully locked in. That the sociopathic manipulators who are driving our species toward war, ecocide and Orwellian dystopia are just too powerful and too good at what they do. […]
What If There Were No Official Narratives?
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 12, 2018 at 01:22
One of the weirdest things about the post-Iraq invasion world is how the mass media has actually gotten less accountable instead of more accountable for its reporting since that time. Right now in the UK there’s an amazingly viral smear campaign against Jeremy Corbyn running across […]
Who Has Profited From Your Beliefs?
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 10, 2018 at 02:36
Have you ever stopped and considered how the ideas in your head got there? Especially the ideas you hold as true and important? I mean really considered it. All the way through. Maybe you know that some of your beliefs and values were put there […]
Ten Things That Are More Selfish, Stupid And Privileged Than Voting Green Party
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 8, 2018 at 12:16
“Green Party” is trending on Twitter right now, which always means that Democrats are having a meltdown over something that is entirely their own fault. Apparently a few people voted Green in a close congressional election in Ohio with low turnout due to uninteresting and […]
That Time Trump’s Iran Advisor Threatened To Murder An Official’s Children To Start The Iraq War
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 8, 2018 at 04:15
If you’ve been wondering why you’re seeing John Bolton’s carrion-soaked mustache on screen more than usual lately, it’s because things are escalating further with Iran. President Trump’s National Security Advisor has been on a whirlwind media tour helping the imperial […]
In A Corporatist System Of Government, Corporate Censorship Is State Censorship
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 7, 2018 at 03:10
Last year, representatives of Facebook, Twitter, and Google were instructed on the US Senate floor that it is their responsibility to “quell information rebellions” and adopt a “mission statement” expressing their commitment to “prevent the fomenting of discord.” […]
There Is No Such Thing As A Moderate Mainstream Centrist
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 6, 2018 at 01:06
I just watched two mainstream political videos back-to-back from what is conventionally referred to as America’s political “center”, and just by coincidence they happened to completely contradict each other. The first was a Bill Maher segment in which he barely even attempted to […]
Democrats Who Smear WikiLeaks Are Assisting Trump’s War On The Press
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 4, 2018 at 16:05
You can’t throw a rock in establishment media circles these days without hitting a hand-wringing empire loyalist who is in the middle of an existential crisis about the US president hurting Jim Acosta’s feelings. They act like Trump saying mean words about mainstream media outlets […]
They Work To Manufacture Consent Because They Need It. So Don’t Give It To Them.
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 3, 2018 at 02:15
Plutocrat-owned news media outlets lie constantly. When I say this I don’t mean that everything they say is false; many of the events reported by mass media are for the most part factual. Whenever it’s convenient for the loose alliance of western plutocrats, the political […]
As Long As Assange Is Silenced, Claims Against Him Are Illegitimate
by Caitlin Johnstone on August 1, 2018 at 00:58
As attempts to evict Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian embassy in London get more and more aggressive, we are seeing a proportionate increase in the establishment smear campaign against him and against WikiLeaks. This is not a coincidence. The planned campaign to remove Assange from political […]
