Glenn Greenwald Reminds Me That Actual Investigation Matters

In his most recent article, Greenwald correctly points out that if whistle-blowers do what these intelligence leaker did, Obama puts them in jail. He also points out that columnists at the NYT and Washington Post make careers out of repeating CIA and FBI anonymous sources without doing any journalistic investigation. 

Everyone should put their critical thinking hats on and understand there is a large percentage of Washington DC that does not want renewed relations with Russia. It flies in the face of the cold war they never stopped fighting and American hegemony abroad.
Greenwald already did his investigation on the evidence of Russian involvement still being peddled by the media back in January, when the sad excuse for an intelligence report came out.

Similarly reading actual journalism gives you the keen eye to smell bullshit.

Take Your Medicine

​CNN calling for Trump to “heal” the country. He won an election. He didn’t control the largest military in world history, hold huge executive power, decide the direction of the economy and speak to a confused and sometimes scared nation for 8 years.

“He has to earn our respect”. Fine. But you had 8 years in charge and the country lost respect you for and kicked you to the curb.
Take your medicine and try some self reflection. The buzz words and labeling of anyone who disagrees with you is old. Bring back actual discussion. Back up your ideas. Stop with the SJW crap. Where are the principled lefties from the Bush era?
More Glenn Greenwald and that crazy English guy. Less Young Turks & MSNBC. Or you’ll get more Donald Trump & Alt-Right, and less “socially liberal/fiscally conservative”.

Some People are Actually Excited about Hillary 2016

A little satire from Glenn Greenwald:

“It’s easy to strike a pose of cynicism when contemplating Hillary Clinton’s inevitable (and terribly imminent) presidential campaign. As a drearily soulless, principle-free, power-hungry veteran of DC’s game of thrones, she’s about as banal of an American politician as it gets. One of the few unique aspects to her, perhaps the only one, is how the genuinely inspiring gender milestone of her election will (following the Obama model) be exploited to obscure her primary role as guardian of the status quo.”

After Pretending to Care About Egyptian Democracy, the U.S. Back to Openly Supporting Tyranny.

Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept does a great job summing up the last 3 years of US policy towards Egypt, and how the wishes of the Egyptian people are the last thing on the list.
