Kevin Gosztola: No Pardons For Edward Snowden Or Julian Assange

2021 01 20 06 44

"NSA whistleblower Reality Winner, who was the first to be prosecuted under the Espionage Act under Trump, and former CIA officer John Kiriakou pursued pardons. They were effectively denied as well. On January 17, the New York Times reported that an associate of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Kiriakou a pardon would cost him $2 million. "I laughed. Two million bucks—are you out of your mind?" Kiriakou told the Times. "Even if I had two million bucks, I wouldn't spend it to recover a $700,000 pension." The report exposed a sliver of the corruption around pardons in the final days of the...

Loser Michele Flournoy

She always loses. Like that time she tripled and lost the war in Afghanistan. She could have been Obama's secretary of defense. The first woman(!) and everything. But no, she decided to wait so she could be appointed by Hillary Clinton and be a part of the big women taking over the government and smashing the glass ceiling together thing and all that. So she let it be known she did not seek and would not accept Obama's nomination for SecDef. Then Hillary lost! Haha. So Flournoy was in purgatory for four years, making millions of dollars from arms dealers. Waiting. Then Biden won the...

Forget Firing the Prosecutor, Biden Overthrew the Government of Ukraine in 2014

The reason Burisma hired his crackhead son is that they were in tight with the government he overthrew and so were trying to cozy up to the new powers in town. But anyway, here's the intercepted phone call between Robert Kagan's wife Victoria Nuland conspiring with the ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt about how to accomplish the coup, which was leaked two weeks before they went ahead and did it anyway. [Thanks Russia for the intercept! By the way, there are still 30,000 missing Hillary Clinton emails out there somewhere if you get a chance...] Nuland: So on that piece Geoff, when I...

COI_Logo

On Conflicts of Interest #15, Kyle and Will run down new disclosures from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on the Russiagate saga, suggesting some in the intelligence community were aware of a plot by the Hillary Clinton campaign to invent a scandal about Russian hacking and collusion. Julian Assange's extradition hearing will soon conclude verbal testimony and move into the later stages of the process. Will and Kyle re-cap the major developments over the last several weeks. Despite a spike in violence across Afghanistan itself, peace talks between the Taliban and the...

9/18/20 Grant Smith on the Exaggerated Significance of Evangelical Zionists in America

Scott talks to Grant Smith about the role of evangelical Christians in the Zionist movement in America. Grant examines the premise that evangelicals are the most significant driving force behind American support for Israel, a popular notion ever since George Bush Sr. blamed his loss to Bill Clinton on his failure to appease evangelical voters on the issue of Israel. But Smith argues that their influence is overblown. He says that the power wielded by actual lobbying groups like AIPAC are still the overwhelming driving force in shaping U.S. policy toward Israel, pushing for things like...

9/11/20 Arthur Bloom on the Fake Opinion Columnists Pushing War With Iran

Arthur Bloom talks about a recent piece from The American Conservative, which exposes the case of a prolific and well-known anti-Iran opinion columnist who turned out not to be a real person. "Amir Basiri," who wrote dozens of pieces for mostly right-leaning publications advocating for war with Iran, turns out to have been nothing more than a pseudonymous figurehead for the Mujahideen-eKhalq (MEK), an Iranian dissident exile group. The MEK has been described as a communist terrorism cult, but in recent years has found favor with the likes of Hillary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton...
