Sagt mal, ist der Mehdorn wieder bei der Bahn?

Die Hufung an Ausfllen gerade ist bemerkenswert. Auf der Hinfahrt hlt der Zug von Berlin nach Mnchen nicht in Berlin und Wittenberg und Leipzig Hbf sondern fhrt Leipzig Messe los, und auf der Rckfahrt hat der Zug eine Stunde Versptung und dann kommt nur die Hlfte an ("Wagen 30-38 heute nicht dabei"). Im Ausweichzug ging dann das Restaurant nicht und der startete schon mit 20 Minuten Versptung.

Allerdings haben sowohl auf der Hin- als auch auf der Rckfahrt dann der Zug jeweils 10 Minuten Versptung wieder reingeholt. Die Situation wirkt ein bisschen so, als versuche die Bahn, Inkompetenz und Fehlplanung durch Bravado und Verzweifungstaten zu kompensieren.

The Art of Bias "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

It seems like less than a week ago I listened to The Art of Now, narrated by the quavery-voiced Errollyn Wallen.  I didnt think much of it. Well, it was less than a week ago, and BBC Watch has come up with a forensic take-down of the programme. Do read it. We heard
 A completely context-free account of the second Lebanon war in 2006. 
 How that war began and what was happening on the other side of the border have no place in this story and neither does the all-important context of the Hizballah HQ in a specific neighbourhood of Beirut.
followed by more decontextualised accounts of Jenin, riddled with omissions and pure anti-Israel rhetoric.
The second storys location is Jenin and Ahmed Tobasi sets the scene by telling listeners that when Israel was created his grandparents left their village and came here to Jenin refugee camp. No context such as the invasion of Israel by surrounding Arab states is provided at all.

Here the bias is blatant, unchallenged and relentless. The BBC cannot now claim to be impartial.

Where's Barry? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Haaretz

Abbas is caught in a catch-22. On the one hand, there is the U.S. peace initiative, which he has good reason to think will come to nothing of value. On the other, there is the failed reconciliation process between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. The elderly leader escapes his troubles  by hurling insults at Americans and imposing further sanctions on the Gaza Strip. His declarations and actions could bring closer a military conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Strip, and continue to destabilize already tense relations with Israel in the West Bank. 
Abbas is delusional. He always has been. The amount of criticism of him in the West is minuscule compared to how insane his words are. And the only explanation for this is because the West is committed to the meme of blaming Israel for everything, first and foremost, in any story.
I havent seen Abdel Bari Atwan on Dateline for a week or so. Wonder if hes well. Oh look. Here he is!



Not exactly delusional and always has been - our Bari (aka 'Arry Batwan' or "Barry) wonders now whether Abbas is all there.
Why did President Abbas depart from diplomatic norms and describe the American ambassador as "the son of a dog"? Is it reasonable to raise his anger against America and Hamas at the same time? What is the guilt of two million people in Gaza to pay the price of this anger? Has his health deteriorated?

No, our Barry hasnt switched sides. Instead, our B...

Facebook: Six Degrees of Giant Squid "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

50 million is nothing. Once the six degrees of separation giant squid gets going, theres no stopping it.

By  of The Automatic Earth

All of a sudden, politicians in the EU, UK, and USA all want to talk to Mark Zuckerberg. Thats a bad enough sign all by itself. It means they all either have been asleep, complicit, or theyre not very bright. The media tries to convince us the Facebook scandal is about Trump, Russia (yawn..) and elections. Its not. Not even close.

If Zuckerberg ever shows up for any of these meetings with worried politicians, hell come with a cabal of lawyers in tow, and theyll put the blame on anyone but Facebook and say the company was tricked by devious parties who didnt live up to their legal agreements.

After that, the argument wont be whether Facebook broke any laws for allowing data breaches, but whether their data use policy itself is, and always was, illegal. Now, Facebook has been around for a few years, with their policies, and nobody ever raised their voices. Not really, that is.

And then itll all fizzle out, amid some additional grandstanding from all involved, face-saving galore, and more blame for Trump and Russia.

The new European Parliament chief Antonio Tajani said yesterday: Weve invited Mark Zuckerberg to the European Parliament. Facebook needs to clarify before the representatives of 500 million Europeans that personal data is not being used to manipulate democracy.

Thats all you need to know, really. Personal data can be used to manipulate anything as long as its not democracy. Or at least democracy as the Brussels elite choose to define it.

First: this is not about Cambridge Analytica, its about Facebook. Or rather, its about the entire social media and search industry, as well as its connections to the intelligence community. Dont ever again see Google or Facebook as not being part of that.

What Facebook enabled Cambridge Analytica to do, it will do ten times bigger itself. And it sells licences to do it to probably thousands of other developers. The CIA and NSA may have unlimited powers, but prior to Alphabet and Facebook, they never had the databases. They do now, and theyre using them. Manipulate democracy? What democracy?

Then: 50 million is nothing. Once the six degrees of separation giant squid gets going, theres no stopping it. The Cambridge Analytica thing supposedly started with a few hundred thousand people who consented to having their data used for academic purposes. From there its easy to get to 50 million. Its harder to stop there than it is to go to hundreds of millions. Its the six d...

Want to know why your Council tax is going up again? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


If you want to know why your Council Tax bill is going up, but the services your local council provide are worse than they've ever been before, I've got the answer for you.

The reason that councils across the country are increasing Council Tax bills whilst simultaneously cutting what they actually spend on services is that the Tory government have slashed central government funding for local governments by 67% since 2010, and they're still slashing away at the Communities and Local Government budget now.

This sustained Tory attack on local government funding means that councils have way less money to spend on maintaining local infrastructure and services.
  • Local councils have far less to spend on waste services, so these ideologically driven Tory cuts are the reason that a huge number of councils have reduced bin collections to fortnightly.
  • Local councils have far less to spend on local amenities like libraries, public toilets, leisure centres, and public spaces like parks and indoor markets, so these ideologically driven Tory cuts are the reason that they're being closed down and sold off to property developers.
  • Local councils have far less to spend on running their planning departments, so these ideologically driven Tory cuts are the reason that simple planning applications are taking longer than ever to process.
  • Local councils have far less to spend on highway maintenance, so these ideologically driven Tory cuts are the reason that our roads are deteriorating so badly.

INDICTMENT: WE THE PEOPLE Charge Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, BLM Special Agent in Charge Daniel Love for Utah and Nevada, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey with: RICO.  Murder, wrongful prosecution, abuse of powers and subversion

According to the NSA whistleblower, William Benney, the National Security Agency (NSA) has never been a signal intelligence agency, but a criminal organization.  Approximately 99 percent of its data is never processed, but the 1 percent that is processed is used to spy on and blackmail Congress to keep its budget alive, as it continues to waste our taxed dollars.

The NSA doesnt discriminate, it spies on everyone.  Through the mobile device in your pocket or purse the NSA listens to your conversations and notes every ping from the cell towers youve passed to determine your exact location throughout the day; it reads and captures all of your emails, tweets, Facebook entries, Google searches and Cloud submissions. It deciphers every key stroke while youre online, and through your Smart TV and other electronic devices it watches and listens to everything you do and say in your home.  Smart appliances monitor you and transmit the information directly to the NSA. Even your Smart refrigerator reads and transmits its contents, including the amount of the substance remaining in your digitally-stamped containers.  All of your metadata is filtered through an AI super computer in order to determine what you like or dislikes, what, and even how you think.  It can literally read your mind and predict your future.

This massive illegal spying on Americans has also collected metadata on every dual citizen trader, elite pedophile, drug dealer and white collar criminal. And yes, for probable future use, this metadata is compiled and stored on you.

On Nov. 17, 2017, the NSA director Admiral Mike Rogers, in a bold, unprecedented move, without notifying superiors, traveled to New York to warn President-Elect Donald Trump that he was being monitored by the Obama administration.

When Trump announced that his phones were being tapped by Obama, the MSM ridiculed him, belittled him for months; they accused him of being paranoid and called him a liar, and they still havent retracted or apologized.

The very next day, The Washington Posta CIA intelligence Community leak-dump, which also uses CNNreported that Rogers was recommended to be moved from his NSA position.  That recommendation was...

[Russian Federation] Support political prisoner anarchist Evgeny Karakashev "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

received on 21.03.18

We call for solidarity and support of Crimean anarchist Evgeny Karakashev. The collection of funds for the work of a lawyer and the payment of parcels is started.

Evgeny was born on August 21, 1978. He lives in Yevpatoria, Crimea. He is a leftist activist with anarchist beliefs. On February 1, 2018, Karakashev was detained, and on February 2, 2018, arrested on suspicion of committing crimes under Part 1 of Art. 282 (the incitement of hatredand enmity) and Part 2 of Art. 205.2 (public calls for terrorism) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. He is in custody from February 2nd 2018.

Case description

On February 1st, 2018, Evgeny Karakashev was detained by police officers in Yevpatoriya. Journalist Alyona Savchuk wrote in Facebook that on the day of his arrest, Karakashev was searched. They took him tough: some men in civil broke into, did not introduce themselves, immediately laid him on the floor, grabbed, handcuffed him behind his back. Evgeny says that he stayed in handcuffs until the temporary detention facility. On his right forehead is a huge abrasion. Only in the evening Karakashev could call a friend and ask to find a lawyer, says Savchuk. The investigator Abushayev said that he does not remember how lon Karakashev had been handcuffed 5 minutes or 3 hours, and that Karakashev voluntarily agreed on offer to go to police department.

On February 2nd, 2018, the Evpatoria City Court arrested Evgeny for 2 months on suspicion of committing incitement of hatred and enmity and public calls for terrorism.

It appears from the order on institution of criminal proceedings, according to the investigation, Karakashev published a video on one of his pages in social network VKontakte at the end of 2014, which allegedly calls for terrorism. In addition, according to the order, in January 2017, he posted from another account in a chat room for 35 people a text that contains signs of propaganda of the ideology of violence and calls for terrorist activities. It is not specified exactly what Karakashev published, however, the document says that the experts investigated teletext, starting with the words use grenade against and ending with the words in the windows of authorities, good luck.

It is obvious that the reason for initiating the criminal case was the video Video Appeal of the Primorsky Partisans published in the socia network VKontakte, in which partisans explain the motives of their actions. This video is recognized in Russia as an extremist one, as  i...

And the body, that represents local dentists, says preventable tooth decay is costing taxpayers millions of pounds per year. The BDA has thrown its weight behind calls for root and branch reform of oral health strategy.

They say new analysis shows extractions of multiple teeth among under-18s could be costing the health service over 9million a year.

Whenever a Hollywood actress complains about some lecherous man, theres blanket coverage. Even our MPs feel the need to tut.

For the most part, the paedophile scandal in Telford was ignored by the people who should care most.

NSA Has Been Tracking Bitcoin Users Since 2013, New Snowden Documents Reveal "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Civil libertarians and security researchers have long been concerned that otherwise inadmissible intelligence from the agency is used to build cases against Americans though a process known as parallel construction.

Cross-posted from Zero Hedge

During his 2015 trial, Silk Road creator Ross Ulbrichts defense attorneys raised questions about the governments case that, although they were ultimately disregarded by the jury, have continued to bother crypto users with an affinity for so-called conspiracy theories. They pointed out vagaries in the FBIs account of its years-long pursuit of Ulbricht, and questioned whether the bureau had truly discovered Ulbrichts involvement on its own, or whether it had help from other deep state elements, namely the National Security Agency.

Of course, the judge, who eventually sentenced Ulbricht to life in prison without the possibility of parole, refused to entertain their argument. But if they were correct, it would mean that the governments whole case was built on evidence that was ultimately inadmissible.

As it turns out, Ulbrichts lawyers were on to something.

In a blockbuster report published Tuesday in the Intercept, reporter Sam Biddle cited several documents included in the massive cache of stolen NSA documents that showed that the agency has been tracking bitcoin users since 2013, and has potentially been funneling some of this information to other federal agencies. Or, as Biddle puts it, maybe the conspiracy theorists were right

#DeleteFacebook is a monumentally stupid campaign for the political left to be pushing "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


We all know the left has a spectacular propensity for self-harm, from factionalism and splits, through to the alienating language that so many on the left tend to use, but the Cambridge Analytica Facebook data scandal has unleashed a truly spectacular self-harming campaign on the left.

Left-wing people are taking to Twitter to call for others to #DeleteFacebook.

Of course Facebook has some very serious problems, including the alleged misuse of Facebook data to create psychological warfare tools to rig elections, their hosting of disgusting terrorism-inspiring extreme-right hate chambers like Britain First for years, their continued promotion of fake news, and their willingness to allow political parties and campaigns to spread outright lies through targeted dark ads.

I'm clearly not denying Facebook has serious problems, but to focus on all of the problems and refuse to recognise that Facebook was the scene of a massive left-wing victory during the 2017 General Election is wilful myopia.

After decades of hard-right neoliberalism completely dominating the means of communication, suddenly Facebook provided a voice to people to express an alternative.

Satanic Pedophilia Network Exposed in Australia It Starts at the TOP, Just Like in the USA and UK "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The New World Order cult that rules the world administers a Satanic Pedophilia Network, including top-level politicians like Australian Prime Ministers and US Presidents.

The Satanic Pedophilia Network which underlies the New World Order was again exposed in the last few months by another brave whistleblower. Australian woman Fiona Barnett showed a ton of courage in going public at a Sydney press conference in October 2015 and naming names.

Fiona, a former victim of Satanic ritual abuse and part of an international VIP pedophile ring, not only exposed the existence of the Satanic pedophilia network and its international child trafficking ring, but actually named 3 former Australian Prime Ministers and 1 former US President as perpetrators.

She reveals that this network, composed of famous actors, celebrities, judges, politicians and other high-flyers, has infiltrated all the key organizations and institutions in Australia just as it has in the US and Britain.

Warning: what follows is graphic and requires a great deal of maturity to swallow, but if youre interested in the real truth of whats going on in the world, read on.

EU Bad-Loan-Fiasco-Reform Loses Teeth, Adds Sweeteners for Banks (Funded by Taxpayers) "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

After much lobbying, guidelines for banks become non-binding expectations, says the ECB.

Banks in Europe have won yet another key regulatory battle, and once again largely at the expense of Eurozone citizens, both in their role as taxpayers and bank customers: How to deal with their bad loans.

These non-performing loans (NPLs) are a long-festering massive problem at European banks. At most recent count, the total was estimated to be 759 billion, or 5.15% of total loans. By comparison, the NPL ratios in the US and UK banking sectors in 2016 were 1.3% and 0.9%, respectively. Currently six (out of 19) Eurozone countries have an NPL ratio above 10%:

  • Ireland: 12.8% (down from 15.8%)
  • Italy: 11.8% (down from 16.6% in 2016)
  • Portugal: 18.2% (down from 19.2% in 2016)
  • Slovenia: 13.6% (down from 19.7% in 2016)
  • Greece: 46.6% (no change since 2016)
  • Cyprus: 34.0% (down from 49% in 2016)

After years of promising sweeping reforms to finally address the NPLs in various stages of decay on EU banks balance sheets, the European Commission and European Central Bank have unveiled a regulatory package with little teeth but lots of sweeteners (for the banks)

If the Tories had any sense they'd make hapless Ben Bradley delete his Twitter account "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


The Tory MP Ben Bradley isn't just a nasty piece of work who defames his political opponents, calls for the sterilisation of poor people, and joked with Iain Duncan Smith about castrating a journalist who dared to criticise him, he's also a remarkably dim bulb who couldn't spot a public relations own goal if it slapped him in the face.
 

Fresh from creating the most viral political Twitter disaster British politics has ever seen with his apology for defaming Jeremy Corbyn, Ben Bradley must have thought that he'd scored a magnificent public relations goal by announcing the defection of two Ashfield councillors from Labour to the Tories.

'Oh good' he must have thought, 'a chance to bash Jeremy Corbyn by citing "Momentum" as the reason for the defections'.

The problem of course is that these defections don't really do anything to make the Tories look good, but do an awful lot to reinforce the Labour left narrat...

Israel Quietly Begins Practicing for Possible War With Russia "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

by

The Israeli army quietly conducted a military exercise last week that simulated a multi-front war where Russia intervened to prevent Israel from attacking Syria, Haaretz reports.

According to Haaretz, the drill involved the top-ranking officers of the Israeli Defence Force (IDF), as well as the headquarters staff of all the commands that would be required to successfully pursue a fight with Hezbollah, an Iranian-aligned militia based in Lebanon. Haaretz noted that Israel prepared for the scenario in which a war with Hezbollah in Lebanon would require the Israeli military to fight on other fronts most likely Syria  where Hezbollah retains a significant military presence.

Throughout the exercise, we examined various implications of the Russian presence in Syria, a senior IDF officer said, as quoted by Haaretz. We practiced everything that could be coordinated with the Russians and also what couldnt be, how we would operate without harming their interests in the region, and on the flip side, scenarios in which the Russians made trouble. [emphasis added]

The drill was strictly a command-level exercise, meaning it did not involve any troops on the ground. Its sole purpose was to study various threat scenarios. Some of the scenarios explored in this exercise included fighting that killed hundreds of Israelis, as well as terrorist incursions against Israeli towns and cyber-attacks.

It is also worth noting that the IDF concluded two other major military exercises last week, one of which was a joint exercise with thousands of American personnel known as Juniper Cobra.

According to Haaretz, Maj. Gen Yair Golan planned the less publicized command-level exercise, which began with high-intensity fighting against Hezbollah in Lebanon and later spread to both Syria and the Gaza Strip.

These are large-scale exercises that are part of our preparedness for war, Golan said. The exercise developed to the point where Israel had more than 100 fatalities, both soldiers and civilians.

Golan is the same official who was tasked with writing Israels defense policy last year while at the same time publicly admitting that Israel could not realistically take on Iran by itself. It is consequently no surprise that under Golans leadership, Israel is practicing simulating wars...

How Jews Gave America Gay Marriage "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

This article has nothing to do with Russia, but we are running it here in keeping with my commitment to publish articles that fairly and honestly discuss the influence of Jewish elites, particularly when it is malevolent, which I believe it often is.

The refusal of most media to discuss Jewish influence is causing huge problems both domestically and in foreign relations. I discuss this at length in my article Its Time to Drop the Jew Taboo.

The Russian angle on this story is that Russia, both its people and its government, has remained staunchly opposed to this cultural Marxist encroachment by gay activism. This is in part because Jewish elites have far less influence in Russia in the media, among NGOs, and in government. It makes a huge difference.

Charles Bausman, Editor


Since gay marriage was legalized in 2015 the American public has seen that the slippery slope from legal gay marriage to trannies in girls locker roomsto troubled children given hormone blockers is real. And Americans arent too happy about it: as Alyssa Rosenberg lamented in the Washington Post, the number of Americans who express discomfort around LGBT people has risen for the first time since 2014.

In light of this, its worth looking back at how this slippery slope began and how gay marriage was legalized in the first place.

An interesting perspective on this subject can be found in an article published in 2014 by Tikkun Magazine titled How Jews Brought America to the Tipping Point on Marriage Equality which details how Jewish activists gathered enough force to help push the state-by-state dominoes over to legal...

Vince Cable is actually complaining about the consequences of flogging the Royal Mail! "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


In the Autumn of 2013 Vince Cable was the Tory/Lib-Dem Coalition minister who sold off the Royal Mail to a bunch of private profiteers at way below its market value. In 2017 he has the absolute brass neck to complain about the consequences of that sale.

Vince knew that he was ripping off the public by flogging the Royal Mail at way below its real market value, but he simply didn't care.

Vince knew that public opinion was dead set against the sell-off, with 67% of the public against to just 20% in favour, but he went ahead anyway.

Vince knew that Royal Mail sorting offices across the nation were sitting on prime bits of development land worth billions, and that the sale of just a few of these sorting offices would recoup the entire 2 billion price he flogged the Royal Mail off for.

In hindsight the sale of the Royal Mail has been described as "crony capitalism at its worst" and the widespread predictions that the private owners would cash in on the property portfolio have come true.

When Vince Cable flogged off the Royal Mail in 2013 he valued the 6.25 acre Mount Pleasant sorting office at 29 million. Just a few years later in 2017 the private owners flogged it off to developers for 193 million.

Porton Down Scientists Under Extreme Pressure To Confirm Nerve Gas As Russian "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Authored by Craig Murray via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

I have now received confirmation from a well placed FCO source that Porton Down scientists are not able to identify the nerve gas as being of Russian manufacture, and have been resentful of the pressure being placed on them to do so.

Porton Down would only sign up to the formulation of a type developed by Russia after a rather difficult meeting where this was agreed as a compromise formulation.

The Russians were allegedly researching, in the Novichok programme a generation of nerve agents which could be produced from commercially available precursors such as insecticides and fertilisers. This substance is a novichok in that sense. It is of that type. Just as I am typing on a laptop of a type developed by the United States, though this one was made in China.

To anybody with a Whitehall background this has been obvious for several days.

The government has never said the nerve agent was made in Russia, or that it can only be made in Russia. The exact formulation of a type developed by Russia was used by Theresa May in parliament, used by the UK at the UN Security Council, used by Boris Johnson on the BBC yesterday and, most tellingly of all, of a type developed by Russia is the precise phrase used in the joint communique issued by the UK, USA, France and Germany yesterday: This use of a military-grade nerve agent, of a type developed by Russia, constitutes the first offensive use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War.

When the same extremely careful phrasing is never deviated from, you know it is the result of a very delicate Whitehall compromise. My FCO source, like me, remembers the extreme pressure put on FCO staff and other civil servants to sign off the dirty dossier on Iraqi WMD, some of which pressure I recount in my memoir Murder in Samarkand. She volunteered the comparison to...

  • Unsurprisingly, nearly three quarters of us have visible plaque in our mouths
  • Gum disease has also been linked to health problems, including heart disease 
Two minutes, twice a day its a simple message thats drummed into us from an early age. But the latest figures suggest many of us still dont brush properly and our teeth and gums are suffering serious damage as a result.
One in four adults admits they dont brush their teeth twice a day, according to the charity the Oral Health Foundation. Unsurprisingly, nearly 70 per cent of us have visible plaque a build-up of bacteria and debris which is a chief cause of tooth decay.
And even if you do try to look after your teeth, how should you do it and what should you use? Last week Swiss researchers who analysed the effectiveness of certain toothpastes found some no more effective than saliva when it comes to preventing dental erosion.

Facebooks chief information security officer, Alex Stamos, will leave the company after internal disagreements over how the social network should deal with its role in spreading disinformation, according to current and former employees briefed on the matter.

Mr. Stamos had been a strong advocate inside the company for investigating and disclosing Russian activity on Facebook, often to the consternation of other top executives

Eigentlich hat er schon im Dezember hingeworfen, aber sie haben ihn angewinselt, er soll noch bis August dableiben, weil wie sieht das denn sonst aus!1!! Was sollen denn die Leute denken!!1!

Also haben sie sein Team dort ausbluten lassen und betreiben ihn jetzt im Andropow-Modus noch ein paar Monate weiter. Falls jemand die Story nicht kennt: Von Andropow erzhlte man sich, er sei ein paar Monate nach Amtsantritt gestorben, weil es pltzlich keine neuen TV-Auftritte und Reden mehr gab. Offiziell war er von Krankheit gezeichnet und konnte nicht auftreten, aber zumindest in Westberlin raunte man sich zu, dass er gestorben sei und man aus kosmetischen Grnden jetzt noch sein Leiche durch die Gegend fahre, damit es aussehe, als htten sie noch eine Regierung da.

He was persuaded to stay through August to oversee the transition of his duties because executives thought his departure would look bad, the current and former employees said. He has been overseeing the transfer of his security team to Facebooks product and infrastructure divisions. His group, which once had 120 people, now has three, the current and former employees said.

Building the Iron Wall "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The ominous assault on the final redoubts of a free press, through an attempt to brand dissidents, independent journalists and critics of corporate power and imperialism as agents of a foreign power, has begun.

By Chris Hedges and cross-posted from truthdig

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, along with 18 members of the House of Representatives15 Republicans and three Democratshas sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions demanding that the Qatari-run Al-Jazeera television network register as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). The letter was issued after Al-Jazeera said it planned to air a documentary by a reporter who went undercover to look into the Israel lobby in the United States. The action by the senator and the House members follows the decision by the Justice Department to force RT Americato register as a foreign agent and the imposition of algorithms by Facebook, Google and Twitter that steer traffic away from left-wing, anti-war and progressive websites, including Truthdig. It also follows Decembers abolition of net neutrality.

The letter asks the Justice Department to investigate reports that Al Jazeera infiltrated American non-profit organizations. It says that the content produced by this network often directly undermines American interests with favorable coverage of U.S. State Department-designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations, including Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaedas branch in Syria.

American citizens deserve to know whether the information and news media they consume is impartial, or if it is deceptive propaganda pushed by foreign nations, the letter reads.

The ominous assault on the final redoubts of a free press, through an attempt to brand dissidents, independent journalists and critics of corporate power and imperialism as agents of a foreign power, has begun. FARA, until recently, was a little-used regulation, passed in 1938 to combat Nazi propaganda. The journalists Max Blumenthal and Ali Abunimah do a good job of addressing the issue in this clip on The Real News Network.

Those who challenge the dominant corporate narrative already struggle on the margins of the media landscape. The handful of independent websites and news outlets, including this one, and a few foreign-run networks such as Al-Jazeera and RT America, on which I host a show, On Conta...
