Facebook, Twitter Greenlight Ukrainian Neo-Nazi Posts

azovsymbols

The Azov Battalion is an essential element of the Ukrainian National Guard that America has supported with numerous weapon shipments. It is also a neo-Nazi militia that has been fighting separatist forces in Ukraine's eastern Donbass region since 2014. Once on Facebook’s ‘Dangerous Individuals and Organizations’ list which barred any discussion of Azov on the platform, users will now be able to feely praise the group. The Intercept reports:  According to internal policy materials reviewed by The Intercept, Facebook will “allow praise of the Azov Battalion when explicitly and exclusively...

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...

Will the Israel-UAE Deal Lead to More Arm Sales?

On FPF #534, I cover several important stories in the news. Documents from BlueLeaks expose the government spending thousands on training police in junk sciences. Andy McCarthy writes in the National Review how Kevin Clinesmith's guilty plead also is an indictment of Rep. Adam Schiff. The US Ambassador to Israel said the new deal with the UAE could open up new arms sales to the UAE. However, Israel expressed concern over sales of the F-35 to the UAE. Israel is hoping to have new deals with Bahrain and Oman.  Links YouTube – Conflicts of Interest Facebook – Conflicts of Interest Twitter –...

Trump Instructs Navy to Shoot Down Iranian Ships

On FPF #483, I discuss Trump's lastest foolish threat to Iran. Trump tweeted that he is instructing the Navy to 'shoot down' Iranian ships that harass American Navy ships. If Trump's orders are followed it could provoke a shooting war between the US and Iran. Thankfully, senior Pentagon officials signaled they plan to keep the same rules of engagement in the Persian Gulf.  Links The Intercept - 3 states spy on prison...

3/27/20 Eli Clifton on the Crushing US Sanctions on Iran

Scott interviews Eli Clifton about the U.S. sanctions regime against Iran. These sanctions were already having a severe impact on the ability of Iranian civilians to conduct business and buy necessary goods, and in the face of coronavirus they could turn an already bad situation into a humanitarian disaster. None of this has deterred the sanctions hawks in the Trump administration from sticking to their idea that by pressuring a country's population you can weaken its government. This has almost never borne out in practice, and simply hurts thousands of innocents while the elites remain...

2/21/20 Dave DeCamp on the OPCW’s Efforts to Discredit Douma Whistleblowers

Scott talks to Dave DeCamp about the OPCW's efforts to discredit a pair of whistleblowers, both of whom are former employees who claim their findings were expunged from the organization's official reports on the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma in 2018. The OPCW concluded that there was clear evidence of the Assad government attacking its own civilians with chemical weapons, which was used as justification for the U.S. to launch a retaliatory strike. But these two former employees are adamant that the evidence did not point to such a conclusion—evidence that the OPCW intentionally...

Daniel Hale: The Latest NSA Whistleblower

Daniel Hale is the most recent whistleblower to release documents exposing the injustice carried out by the state. Hale was a National Security Agency (NSA) intelligence analyst. Hale was also a former airman who served as a defense contractor for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. It is thought that he had leaked classified documents to the news outlet, The Intercept. This is the same outlet that Edward Snowden used to expose the NSA, as did former Air Force linguist, Reality Winner, and former FBI agent, Terry J. Albury. In the indictment, it is presumed that Jeremy Scahill...

6/10/19 Jim Epstein on Brazilian Libertarians’ Alliance with Jair Bolsonaro

Discussed on the show: "Libertarians Forged an Alliance With Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Was It a Deal With the Devil?" (Reason) "Leak Reveals Ethics Failures in Brazil’s Operation Car Wash"...
