About the author
About the Author
Glenn Greenwald is one of three co-founding editors of The Intercept. He is a journalist, constitutional lawyer, and author of four New York Times best-selling books on politics and law. His most recent book, No Place to Hide, is about the U.S. surveillance state and his experiences reporting on the Snowden documents around the world. Prior to co-founding The Intercept, Glenn’s column was featured at The Guardian and Salon. He was the debut winner, along with Amy Goodman, of the Park Center I.F. Stone Award for Independent Journalism in 2008, and also received the 2010 Online Journalism Award for his investigative work on the abusive detention conditions of Chelsea Manning. For his 2013 NSA reporting, he received the George Polk award for National Security Reporting; the Gannett Foundation award for investigative journalism and the Gannett Foundation watchdog journalism award; the Esso Premio for Excellence in Investigative Reporting in Brazil (he was the first non-Brazilian to win), and the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Pioneer Award. Along with Laura Poitras, Foreign Policy magazine named him one of the top 100 Global Thinkers for 2013. The NSA reporting he led for The Guardian was awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for public service. .


Nonetheless, Trump, as a matter of rhetoric, repeatedly affirmed policy positions that were directly contrary to long-standing bipartisan orthodoxy, and his policy and personal instability only compounded elites’ fears that he could not be relied upon to safeguard their lucrative, power-vesting agenda. In so many ways — due to his campaign positions, his outsider status, his unstable personality, his witting and unwitting unmasking of the truth of U.S. hegemony, the embarrassment he causes in Western capitals, his reckless unpredictability — Trump posed a threat to their power centers.

^0The most important act any world citizen can do is to stop using all mainstream media.^3000

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda. Toxic sludge for the mind.^3000

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media, owned by the sociopathic 1%.^3000

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires, a puny segment of humanity.^3000

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy but are its most serious enemies. ^3000

Injustice, war, grotesque inequality and the murder of the planet is their handiwork. ^3000

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity—4 billion people.^3000

And the corporate media—which they own—is their main line of defense.^3000

That's why the best way to break their hold over us is to break their media. ^3000

Breaking the corporatocracy's stranglehold on political information is essential.^3000

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures from the looming disasters. ^3000

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media and defeat their power to mislead.^3000

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion. And they never stop.^3000

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie. So trust no one on the Big Media.^3000

And beware of "entertainment shows" that also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.^3000

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying Homeland Security. The police state.^3000

Or CBS Madam Secretary. A ridiculous show, like The West Wing. ^3000

Telling us the US government is good, that the president is good, that its cabinet is good.^3000

That the US establishment—which they represent—has noble aims. Rubbish!^3000

Hollywood and the "news media" are an integrated system of mass disinformation. ^3000

Propaganda to keep the people from waking up to the great crimes committed by their rulers.^3000

Get the healing truth from citizens' media, like The Greanville Post and its free voices. ^3000

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media and its numerous whores.^3000

Sweet Irony…
Amazon will donate a commission for every purchase you make using this app

We all know that Amazon is an uber-capitalist octopus swallowing ever more industries and openly collaborating with the CIA. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, probably the #2 richest man on earth, is no friend of radicals, or socialist revolution, that’s for sure. But this app, ironically, promises to donate some money to whoever uses it to search and make a purchase on Amazon. Since many people will go on using Amazon due to habit or convenience, make it kick back a few dollars our way to continue our pro-peace and anti-imperialist work. Our financial situation leaves us no choice at this point. So consider it. A boycott of Amazon by lefties at this point is hardly going to register on their radar. But any funding we get, at our puny level, will keep us going. Simple as that.

 

 

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

One thought on “What’s Worse: Trump’s Campaign Agenda or Empowering Generals and CIA Operatives to Subvert It?

  1. Trump hatred is a curious psychological phenomenon in the USA. Aside from the recognizable herd cliché thinking and the very thorough propaganda conditioning by the media so that the majority thinks that Trump is a cross between a rhinoceros and a slime bucket, there are other criteria at work. One of the more obvious is the female resentment against the defeat of a first possibility of a woman president how awful she even might have been as counterweight to what they see now, a macho male bully who displays no respect for women and married several trophy wives. That shows in how far women have gained a say in political matters and how careful men must be not to revert to discarded opinions and acts. The distaste for the present president unfortunately instead of working against his abominable reactionary program has thanks probably to the media turned into a petty squabbling about the tiniest wrong steps he makes or does not make because the man cannot move or he is condemned. That has succeeded in diverting the attention of the public to the media machinations and the saltier accusations, rather than the reality behind the show. But then that must go on because this is the USA and the rulers need the space to continue with nefarious inland and foreign policies.
