Though many Democrats have so far remained silent, Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Ron Wyden, and Bernie Sanders are among the few high-profile party members to join free press advocates in condemning Espionage charges against Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange. The political and journalism worlds reacted to the Trump administration's decision Thursday to charge Assange with 17 counts of violating the Espionage Act with concern for those celebrating the prosecution and dismay over those remaining silent on the issue.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

I post this only to show the typical now wayward Common Dreams. Do a search on this piece for yourself, looking for Tulsi Gabbard, whom they regularly fail to recognize. My "blacklisted" websites continues to grow, tragically sad but true. I do my best to separate wheat from chaff on individual articles, but CD has slid down the rabbit hole of its own making. This goes back at least two decades for anyone closely looking.

Daniel - This will find you later today, well and attempting to smile again. HOPES!

I finally had to stop reading CD, sifting out the chaff became too laborious. It seems

there were too many biased members on staff. C'est la guerre. Enjoy Memorial Day.

You may have noted, Jackie Dial has been following comments more lately. She is

somebody Special.

Nels, if you are talking about Opednews j Dial here , there is a strong thread of effects (river if you will) that runs through her article on the ingredients of our biological evolution/s and disruptions on the body and mind that can also be related to the current and historical effects politically of losing our roots here in the US. As above, so below!

Education and understanding of the Founding Fathers seeking of forming a more perfect union while protecting and securing our Treasure, Commons and Unalienable Rights from those that would inhibit such a Nation. I will not go in to depth but suffice it to say that it is imperative to read and understand the Constitution and Bill of Rights which leave no doubts about what WE must maintain as the essential building blocks of the Nation in do's & don'ts to secure a successful future.

I am not sure if you are referring to the movie by the name "C'est la Guerre" where a group of soldiers set off to rescue a beautiful French girl only to find out that war betrays us all. Or, if your emphasis is on the presentative c'est introducing la vie and the idea that we're talking about something that's essential to life or a particular way of life, as in: L'eau, c'est la vie which it seems is a phrase that only English speakers use this strange saying. I digress"..

But then again "Bread and Circus" has always been used to manufacture consent by distracting from the real evolutionary act of the pursuit of seeking a more perfect union.

Of note here in the article that jumps out is that Tulsi was one of the first if not the first, to state the obvious contradiction to the Idea of the founding of this Nation's principles and with Warren, who said "Assange is a bad actor who has harmed U.S. national security and he should be held accountable" with other come lately behind are holding their finger in the air to see which way the wind blows as in bread and circus and not related to the principles. We must not be fooled again without correcting and securing a more perfect union which requires a surging of tide in the affairs of man.

Ah, oui, mon bon ami, George LeRoi, elle est la madame...Jackie Dial



'C'est l guerre." est seulement the phrase I use similar to 'The Russkies did it', Blame

it on Putin, et alii.

Certainement, 'encore' Le pain et cirque.

Et, aussi, Tulsi est uniquement la premiere pour moi.


Keep the faith. Back Ok from DANNMARK?

Aye, but I'm off again to Kongeriget Danmark in 3 weeks, maybe I should accept the social compact and stay but I choke on the EEC (EU) and NATO affiliations in their current forms and dictate. I have been accused of being a divine discontent however it is just a misinterpretation I assure you!

Your good friend,

George

I, too, choke on the US creations there, but I do love that country, its people and

their products, mein herr koenig, near the same as Cymru.

"Divine discontent" sounds like an honor. Ditto "anti-semite," the way it's used--I am one, btw, according to Megan Carpentier, formerly of Raw Story.

Unfortunately, the silence on Tulsi is deafening. The establishment knows she is the most dangerous threat to their treasonous take-over of fascist agenda.

The headline is a deliberate lie. TULSI GABBARD is conspicuously omitted, she being the FIRST to stand up against this injustice. CommonDreams is more like Common shilling.

" Sanders, Warren, Wyden Join Free Press Advocates in Denouncing Assange Prosecution as Grave ThreatBut Others Are Silent"

Sanders waited about a week before chiming in. Gabbard is a true leader.

Agreed, and might I add a true patriot of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Despite the coming MSM's new found recognition of the First Amendment which smacks not of appeasement or recognition of truth, law and honor but of more circus to come. The Theater of the Absurd comes to mind.
