CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—I’d like to draw attention to a few recent social media posts which have gained a lot of traction in the last few days, not for the impact those posts have but for what they portend for the rest of the 2020 race. The first is from the Twitter account for the Russiagate documentary Active Measures, and it received thousands of shares: “Bernie was the one Democrat not to vote to keep sanctions on Deripaska (he also voted against Russia sanctions and Magnitsky),” the post reads. “@SenSanders won’t stand up to billionaires in Russia and he wants you to to believe he’ll stand up to them in America. #fraud”

ALAN MACLEOD—Few freshman members of Congress cause as much of a stir as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has. Articles about her are consistently the best-performing on right-wing news sites. The charismatic 29-year-old Bronx native has seriously ruffled the feathers of conservatives, unused to debating a Democrat with a genuinely progressive agenda. Her proposals include Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, free state college tuition, a 70 percent income tax on the wealthiest Americans and federal legalization of marijuana.

DAVID BROWN—As a senator, Harris has mostly been associated with criticizing the Trump administration and defending the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration’s counter-reform which has been an immense windfall to insurance agencies. She participated in the demands with other leading senators that Senator Al Franken resign over allegations of sexual misconduct. After his resignation, she took over his seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee—a high profile position that she put to good use during the hearings on the confirmation of right-wing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
As a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee—whose longtime ranking Democrat was her colleague from California, Dianne Feinstein—Harris oversees the vast criminal activity of the FBI and CIA, including the FBI’s political investigation into the Trump administration.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—Establishment-fueled Russia hysteria is a religion. It is an entirely faith-based belief system which has toxic effects on the people who subscribe to it, and toxic effects on the world as it manufactures support for insane escalations between two nuclear superpowers. As we discussed yesterday, if you don’t have a functioning radar for detecting malignant narratives, you might get lucky and find yourself in opposition to some pernicious belief systems, yet also find yourself selling CIA narratives to your very large online audience as well.
