London’s ‘media freedom’ conference smacks of irony: Critics barred, no mention of jailed Assange

Irony that governments which support terrorists in Syria and whitewash Israeli murders of Palestinian journalists have the gall to hold a conference feigning concern for journalists’ rights and media freedom. Irony that journalists actually suffering persecution and unjust imprisonment –like Kirill Vyshinsky and Julian Assange – were not the focus of the conference, with Assange […]

Freedom only truly exists as a whole

I was born free. At least that’s what I was told. In diaspora far from my roots. Far from the language my mother would sing to me while growing in her womb. Far from the stories of empires and freedom fighters my father would read to me while tucking me into bed. In a world […]

Slavoj Zizek: Anti-Semitism & Me Too complaints challenge freedom of debate

Throughout history, thinking at variance with the mainstream was always unpopular and risky. However, at various times, it has been tolerated to different degrees. Today, it’s less and less acceptable than in the recent past. Liberals of all colors like to repeat German socialist Rosa Luxembourg’s critical stab at the Bolsheviks: “Freedom is freedom for […]

Freedom of piracy: US seeks allies to outsource hunt for Iranian oil tankers

The latest out of Washington is that the US is looking to put together a “coalition” that would “ensure freedom of navigation both in the Straits of Hormuz and Bab al-Mandeb,” as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said on Tuesday. These are the waterways connecting the Persian Gulf to the […]

RT’s ban from media freedom conference shows British irony is alive and well

A spokeswoman told British media: “We have not accredited RT or Sputnik because of their active role in spreading disinformation.”   The accusation of ‘disinformation’ is the exclusive view of the Foreign Office, because it’s worth remembering that while RT has been censured by OFCOM (like every other broadcaster in Britain), it still operates freely under […]

Technological Dependence And The End Of Freedom

The following article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at Alt-Market.com. Technology can be dazzling but also debilitating to real human progress, and when I say “progress” I do not mean advancements in the world of machines but advancements in the world of people, and one does not necessarily lead to […]

‘A Brutal Violation of Press Freedom’: Glenn Greenwald Targeted With Investigation by Brazilian Government After Reporting on Corruption

The Brazilian government is targeting one of its biggest critics, journalist Glenn Greenwald, in a move that has been decried by observers as an intimidation tactic designed to stifle opposition to right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro.  The government’s finance ministry’s money laundering unit was asked by federal police to investigate Greenwald’s finances, O Antagonista reported Tuesday.

Freedom or socialism? It’s a false dichotomy, Mr Pence

US political leaders love to boast don’t they? Earlier in the week, Mike Pence declared the US to be “the most prosperous and powerful nation in the history of the world”. And what makes America GREAT? Why, it stands for ‘FREEDOM’ (remember to cap those words up in case someone misses them), and not socialism. […]

Russia pushes back against America’s expensive ‘Freedom Gas’

Booming exports from Russia, which had already been the largest supplier of natural gas to the continent, have nearly maxed out European natural gas storage capacity and added to what was already an oversupply of natural gas in the region. This will likely push Europe to cut down on their imports of natural gas from the United […]

Florida’s sweeping definition of anti-Semitism limits teachers’ freedom to discuss Palestine

The political bias in that statute stands out as if written with neon lights. Anyone can see that the statute is a desperate attempt to squelch fair comment and insulate the Zionist entity from well-deserved criticism. → Applying a double standard to Israel by requiring behavior of Israel that is not expected or demanded of […]

Top Brazilian Judge Clears for Trial Lula’s Request for Freedom

The Supreme Federal Court (STF) judge, Gilmar Mendes, cleared for trial on Monday the request for freedom of former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, according to Brazilian media.  The habeas corpus (HC) was presented by Lula’s defense last year when then-judge Sergio Moro accepted Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s appointment to lead the Justice Ministry. […]

Consumption was Freedom’s Last Frontier

There was a time, not long ago, when businesses largely adhered to the old advice “Never discuss politics or religion.” And when explaining his lack of 1990s political activism, NBA legend Michael Jordan reportedly said, “Republicans buy shoes, too.” But that was before the advent of “woke” corporate activism.” FREE SPEECH IS HATE SPEECH  This […]

Europe Has No Freedom But to Choose ‘Freedom Gas’

Tony Cartalucci 21st Century Wire The US Department of Energy (DOE) recently renamed US liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports “freedom gas.” But freedom for who? For Europe who already has a cheap and reliable source of natural gas, but is being forced to switch over to more expensive US gas under the threat of sanctions? […]

The US Department of Energy (DOE) recently renamed US liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports “freedom gas.” But freedom for who?

Shhh. It’s not fracking, it’s freedom gas.

In a real press release, the US undersecretary of energy Mark Menezes says that increasing export capacity from the Freeport liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal off the coast of Texas is “critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world.” The potential for fart jokes here is endless, but let’s not even go there. Also on […]

“Freedom not conditional liberty. Sovereignty not limited autonomy. Peace not subjugation.”

Dr Riad Malki Chatham House, the international affairs think-tank in London, recently invited Dr Riad Malki, Palestine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, to talk about the future of Palestine ahead of the ‘deal of the century’ dreamed up by the Trump administration. Malki is involved in shaping the Palestinian response to that initiative when it is […]
