RON RIDENOUR—The first social democratic government in the world occurred in Finland, in 1907, eight years after the founding of the social democratic party. In 1916, S.D. won an absolute majority and governed alone for the only time. German social democrats achieved their first government in 1918 upon the end of the First World War. Sweden had its first S.D. government in 1921. The second oldest social democrat party was led by postal worker Louis Pio in Denmark, in 1871, inspired by the Paris Commune. The social democrats formed its first government in 1924, the same year the social democratic Labour Party was elected to govern in England. Norway’s S.D. ruled first in 1928 but fell after two weeks. The party split into two, one fraction created the Communist Party.

During the occupation of Greece the German Wehrmacht and Waffen SS destroyed, totally or in part, more than 1000 villages and killed many thousands of civilians. The German commanding officer sought in this way to crush the resistance of the partisans to the occupation. In all respects it failed.
GLEN FORD—“Normal” governments, even of great powers, usually leave the sordid business of tactical disinformation campaigns to their clandestine services. Presidents and secretaries of state only tell the “big” strategic lies that are central to Big Power foreign policy. But then, normal governments are not constantly engaged in regime change operations against multiple targeted states. Especially since 9/11, U.S. imperialism appears to have entered a stage–a permanent war-against-all–in which disinformation is the only language it speaks, from the CIA professional specializing in destabilization in Caracas all the way up to the Oval Office in Washington.

Tulsi Gabbard defends Assange and condemns the US government for trying to stifle free speech, preferring coverups to transparency. While answering CNN’s Jake Tapper’s question, Tulsi also teaches this vile presstitute the basics of true journalism.

So here’s Lee Camp, one of America’s most politically astute commentators (and terrific standup comedian) tearing apart the Russiagate nonsense and its countless toxic manifestations, few of which are liable to stop now that the much awaited Mueller Report has completely failed to support their wild and cynical allegations. Among other things, Lee smashes the Democrats’ pathological and utterly cynical denunciations of the Mueller report, still claiming that Trump—due to his fabricated “love for Putin and Russia”—has been terrific for Russia and its allies, instead of precisely the opposite, a fact easily demonstrable. The hardest part is that these utterances by politicians and pundits are not so much the ramblings of loonies but of cold-blooded cynics who know damn well what they are and have been doing.
