Drone whistleblower Daniel Hale was placed in Communications Management Unit (CMU) at the US Penitentiary in Marion, Illinois. CMUs were designed in “war on terror” for restricting prisoners convicted of terrorist offenses or other “high risk inmates.” thedissenter.org/drone-whist…

By placing drone whistleblower Daniel Hale in a Communications Management Unit, the Biden administration is the first administration to put someone accused of unauthorized disclosure of information to the press in solitary confinement conditions established for “War on Terror.”

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell was, as New York Times once put it, the Iraq War’s “most effective salesman.” He engaged in periodic bits of reflection where he expressed “regret.” But none of that ever overcame the fact that he was a key player in lying America into a war

How about teeing up stories for politicians or presidential candidates? Is that in your 101 course?
It’s always the press’s fault and never the fault of the people communicating something. That’s just 101

This is straight from the same intimidation playbook @Chevron has used to target me. Now being used to try to crush a small-town mayor who challenged Big Oil. Fossil fuel lawyers profit from these disgusting and abusive tactics while the planet burns. theguardian.com/environment/…

If I don’t know who you are, we never interact on this platform, and you demand that I answer your bad faith replies to my tweets, you’re gone. Not playing games that we definitely wouldn’t play if we were talking to each other in real life.

Sen. Joe Manchin is a blood-sucking capitalist goon. That’s why he deserves to be pressured and lambasted by outsiders, who write op-eds for WV newspapers.

Yeah, you don’t get it. You can’t get it. You’re relatively new to a politics that doesn’t deal in savagery. And nothing you say should ever be considered a good faith concern.
Maybe there’s some brilliant strategy I don’t get here, but this attempt by Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders to publicly pressure Joe Manchin through an op-ed in a West Virginia paper seems at best pointless, and at worst reckless and likely to backfire. wvgazettemail.com/opinion/op…

So, Joe Manchin makes $500,000 a year from one of the dirtiest coal plants in West Virginia. That’s more than twice his salary as U.S. senator. How is this even legal?
