Democrats Who Denounce Donald Trump as Lawless, Treasonous Authoritarian Voted to Give Him Vast Warrantless Spying Power That leading House Democrats (their minority leader and top Intelligence Committee member) united with Trump to support this bill and oppose reform amendments, was sufficient to cause enough Democrats to side with Trump and ensure passage of the bill. The Trump-favored bill ended up passing by a vote of 256-164.

First France, Now Brazil Unveils Plan to Empower the Government to Censor the Internet in Name of Stopping "Fake News" Among the most confounding aspects of the Twitter announcement is that it is very difficult to identify any existing law that actually authorizes the federal police to exercise the powers they just announced they intend to wield, particularly over the internet. At least as of now, they are claiming for themselves one of the most extremist powers imaginable.

The U.S. Media Yesterday Suffered its Most Humiliating Debacle in Ages: Now Refuses All Transparency Over What Happened It's hard to quantify exactly how many people were deceived -- filled with false news and propaganda -- by the CNN story. But thanks to Democratic-loyal journalists and operatives who decree every Trump/Russia claim to be true without seeing any evidence, it's certainly safe to say that many hundreds of thousands of people, almost certainly millions, were exposed to these false claims.

Four Viral Claims Spread by Journalists on Twitter in the Last Week Alone That are False One of the primary ways that democracy is degraded by platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is, for obvious reasons, typically ignored in such discussions: the way they are used by American journalists to endorse factually false claims that quickly spread and become viral, entrenched into narratives, and thus can never be adequately corrected.

The Misguided Attacks on ACLU for Defending Neo-Nazis' Free Speech Rights in Charlottesville Each time horrific political violence is perpetrated that is deemed to be terrorism, a search is immediately conducted for culprits to blame other than those who actually perpetrated the violence or endorsed the group responsible for it. It's usually only a matter of hours before the attack is exploited to declare one's own political views vindicated, and to depict political adversaries as responsible for, if not complicit.

It was foolish to assume that the campaign vows of any politician, let alone an adept con man like Trump, would be a reliable barometer for what he would do once in office. And, as expected, he has betrayed many of these promises within months of being inaugurated, while the very Wall Street interests he railed against have found a very welcoming embrace in the Oval Office.

With New D.C. Policy Group, Dems Continue to Rehabilitate and Unify With Bush-Era Neocons ONE OF THE most under-discussed yet consequential changes in the American political landscape is the reunion between the Democratic Party and the country's most extreme and discredited neocons. While the rise of Donald Trump, whom neocons loathe, has accelerated this realignment, it began long before the ascension of Trump and is driven by far more common beliefs than contempt for the current president.

Why Has Trust in Media Collapsed? Look at Actions of WSJ, Yahoo, Business Insider and Slate. Contrary to the fable these outlets dispensed to their readers -- that Snowden did not check in to the Mira Hotel on May 21 as he claimed but only did so on June 1, 11 days later -- these new documents, obtained from the Mira, prove that Snowden arrived there exactly when he always said, rendering their published stories factually false.

Both articles were fundamentally false. Each now bears a humiliating editor's note grudgingly acknowledging that the core claims of the story were fiction: The first note was posted a full two weeks later to the top of the original article; the other was buried the following day at the bottom.

As Israel Prospers, Obama Set to Give Billions More in Aid While Netanyahu Demands Even More Usually, when someone hands you billions of dollars in aid, you're not in much of a position to demand more. But the rules for Israel when it comes to U.S. policy, as is so often the case, are simply different. Even as Israel has aggressively expanded settlements of the West Bank (often in a way designed to most humiliate the U.S.) and slaughtered civilians in Gaza, U.S. aid simply increases more and more.

Stop Exploiting LGBT Issues to Demonize Islam and Justify Anti-Muslim Policies Over the last several years, Christian zealots in the U.S. have agitated with both activism and money -- often successfully -- for the implementation of severely repressive anti-LGBT laws in Christian Africa. That includes Uganda, where they tried to implement the death penalty for homosexuals. The law that was passed, criminalizing homosexuality, has led to severe increases in violent attacks against LGBTs.

Perfect End to Democratic Primary: Anonymous Superdelegates Declare Winner Through Media That the Democratic Party nominating process is declared to be over in such an uninspiring, secretive, and elite-driven manner is perfectly symbolic of what the party, and its likely nominee, actually is. The one positive aspect, though significant, is symbolic, while the actual substance -- rallying behind a Wall Street-funded, status quo-perpetuating, multimillionaire militarist -- is grim in the extreme.

Credibility of Brazil's Interim President Collapses as He Receives 8-Year Ban on Running for Office President Michel Temer, overwhelming evidence has emerged proving that to be true: Already, two of the interim ministers in Temer's all-white-male cabinet, including his anti-corruption minister, have been forced to resign after the emergence of secret recordings showing them plotting to obstruct that investigation, which they, along with one-third of his cabinet, are personally implicated.

The New York Times's (and Clinton Campaign's) Abject Cowardice on Israel Essentially the entire world recognizes the reality of Israeli occupation with the exception of a tiny sliver of extremists in Israel and the U.S. That's why Chris Christie had to grovel in apology to GOP billionaire and Israel-devoted fanatic Sheldon Adelson when the New Jersey Governor neutrally described having seen the "occupied territories" during a trip he took to Israel.

Watch: First Interview With Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff Since the Senate's Impeachment Vote Rousseff's suspension will last up to 180 days as her Senate impeachment trial takes place, at which point she will either be acquitted or (as is widely expected) convicted and permanently removed from her office. Rousseff -- who was imprisoned and tortured for three years in the 1970s by the U.S.-supported military dictatorship that ruled the country for 21 years -- is more combative, defiant, and resolute than ever.

The Intercept Is Broadening Access To The Snowden Archive. Here's Why FROM THE TIME we began reporting on the archive provided to us in Hong Kong by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, we sought to fulfill his two principal requests for how the materials should be handled: that they be released in conjunction with careful reporting that puts the documents in context and makes them digestible to the public, and that the welfare and reputations of innocent people be safeguarded.

Interview With BDS Co-Founder Omar Barghouti: Banned by Israel From Traveling, Threatened With Worse As one of the pioneers of the increasingly powerful movement to impose boycotts, sanctions and divestment measures (BDS) on Israel, Barghouti, an articulate, English-speaking activist, has frequently traveled around the world advocating his position. The Israeli government's refusal to allow him to travel is obviously intended to suppress his speech and activism.

The Joke of U.S. Justice and "Accountability" When They Bomb a Hospital Ever since the U.S. last October bombed a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Kunduz, Afghanistan, the U.S. vehemently denied guilt while acting exactly like a guilty party would. First, it changed its story repeatedly. Then, it blocked every effort -- including repeated demands from MSF -- to have an independent investigation determine what really happened.

New Study Shows Mass Surveillance Breeds Meekness, Fear and Self-Censorship There are numerous psychological studies demonstrating that people who believe they are being watched engage in behavior far more compliant, conformist and submissive than those who believe they are acting without monitoring. Writers are not only overwhelmingly worried about government surveillance, but are engaging in self-censorship as a result.

To See the Real Story in Brazil, Look at Who Is Being Installed as President -- and Finance Chiefs The most important means for understanding the truly anti-democratic nature of what's taking place is to look at the person whom Brazilian oligarchs and their media organs are trying to install as president: the corruption-tainted, deeply unpopular, oligarch-serving Vice President Michel Temer

To Protect Hillary Clinton, Democrats Wage War on Their Own Core Citizens United Argument The key argument of the right-wing justices in Citizens United has now become the key argument of the Clinton campaign and its media supporters to justify her personal and political receipt of millions upon millions of dollars in corporate money: "Expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption" -- at least when the candidate in question is Hillary Clinton.

WATCH: Exclusive Interview by Glenn Greenwald with Former Brazilian President Lula da Silva Nobody who has watched Lula's career -- including those who want to see him imprisoned -- can be dismissive of the prospect that he will again be Brazil's president (a new poll released today shows Lula leading the 2018 presidential race along with the evangelical/environmentalist Marina Silva).
