Brilliant discussion of Super Imperialism with Michael Hudson, Ben Norton @benjaminnorton and Max Blumenthal @MaxBlumenthal.

Revealing piece on “not really censorship – it was just another standard editorial choice that happened to be, as always, in favor of established political and commercial interests” by putatively “free of commercial or political bias” @ConversationUK https://thegrayzone.com/2021/05/13/mainstream-outlet-media-refuses-say/
White Helmets corruption scandal deepens: Dutch gov't investigated parent org for fraud, but covered it up https://thegrayzone.com/2021/05/07/syria-white-helmets-mayday-fraud-netherlands/ via @TheGrayzoneNews
A mainstream academic outlet, @ConversationEDU, green-lighted an article on Western-backed foreign policy atrocities that the corporate media refuses to discuss.
But then the piece was suddenly censored.
This is a story about how media propaganda works:
“The #Netherlands investigated fraud by the #MaydayRescueFoundation, which funded the #WhiteHelmets in #Syria with over $120 million in Western government contracts. But top Dutch officials covered up the corruption.” https://thegrayzone.com/2021/05/07/syria-white-helmets-mayday-fraud-netherlands/
"According to the former sicario (assassin), there was “a group of elite Marines, there were [members] of the United States Navy, there were Delta Forces, there was everything there.”" https://thegrayzone.com/2021/05/06/us-special-forces-mexican-drug-cartels/
Red Lines host Anya Parampil explores an internal USAID report admitting the agency’s policy on Venezuela was driven by the State Department and National Security Council’s push for regime change. https://thegrayzone.com/2021/05/06/usaid-admits-to-venezuela-regime-change-fraud/ via @TheGrayzoneNews
World-renowned economist Michael Hudson discusses his concept of American “super imperialism,” US sanctions on Venezuela and Iran, the new cold war on China and Russia, and dedollarization – the potential end to the dollar as the global reserve currency
"The White Helmets operated exclusively in areas run by the Syrian armed opposition, and collaborated extensively with extremists, including ISIS and al-Qaeda. White Helmets were even filmed assisting in public executions..." https://thegrayzone.com/2021/05/07/syria-white-helmets-mayday-fraud-netherlands/ via @TheGrayzoneNews
I investigated how the US gov't cultivated a fake "left" in Ecuador to divide a powerful socialist movement—and how it won the election for a rightist banker
The CIA has used this strategy for decades (recently seen in its "intersectional feminism" video)

The Syrian White Helmets scandal deepens, as new revelations show the Dutch government investigated Mayday Rescue parent organization for massive financial fraud –– but covered it up.
@benjaminnorton on the latest saga of Syria regime change sleaze
US Special Forces trained feared Mexican drug cartels responsible for grisly murders, and brutal Pentagon-backed counter-insurgency in Colombia and Guatemala has bled into organized crime.

How US government fronts shape media coverage of #Myanmar upheaval, propagandize for Western intervention https://thegrayzone.com/2021/04/27/us-government-media-myanmar-propagandize-western-intervention/ via @TheGrayzoneNews
Turns out, 3 days before this article was published, the NSC's Ukraine director briefed reps of the DNC's "Ukrainian Americans for Biden" and other 🇺🇦-🇺🇸 orgs, including the Banderite-led Ukrainian Congress Committee and the Center for US-Ukrainian Relations, an OUN-B front. https://twitter.com/TheGrayzoneNews/status/1387864529002958851
I investigated the "Coalition to End Forced Labor in the Uyghur Region” and found it is:
✅shaking down US companies
✅eliminating Uyghur workers' jobs w/o remediation
✅funneling their lost wages to Uyghur separatist NGOs
✅largely funded by a CIA cutout
When socialist @MashiRafael Correa became Ecuador’s president, CIA cutouts poured money into environmental & Indigenous groups, while the US embassy cultivated leaders to divide the left.
They helped right-wing banker Guillermo Lasso win the 2021 election
a new Cold War with progressive cover,
human rights advocates
are rewarding themselves with the lost wages of those
they claim to be defending"

Australian considering similar #sanctions laws:
“US uses economic sanctions as a weapon against nations who choose a development path independent of US global domination. It uses sanctions as a tool to destabilize governments that refuse to kow-tow to it.”
