Now a word from Caitlin.

Richard quotes right wing sources but that doesn't mean that it is not true.

"In a corporatist system of government, where there is no separation between corporate power and state power, corporate censorship is state censorship."

They called trump fascist. they must have been staring in a mirror.

I've seen lots of changes. What doesn't change is people. Same old hairless apes.

She was asked flat out if people should be concerned that this is big brother spying on their Facebook sites and she asked if people are more concerned about that instead of people dying from misinformation? Just wow.

Another crucial point: you don't have imagine or speculate that maybe the WH will start abusing this "misinformation" claim to censor content politically damaging to them.

They already did it: when Dems, media & tech monopolies censored the Biden archive based on this CIA lie:

The Hunter Biden story was Russia disinformation according to politico. The responses to her tweet are just disgusting to see.

Glenn says that the aclu has not issued a statement on it.

ETA:

Seriously? I didn’t realize how far gone they were.

Ana: "it’s been confirmed so it’s not a made up report."

Okey dokey.

In a free country civil liberties are not only for certain groups.
So this is how liberty dies . . . with thunderous applause.
The donor class doesn’t want it, and Americans elect the bribed. So suck it up.

@snoopydawg

heh, it's great that now with all of the new media we can have virtually moment-by-moment coverage of america's descent into fascism.

apparently you can take jim clyburn to the library, but you can't make him read. i wonder if he's got some of dubois' books on his display shelves, too.

@mimi The small news outlets and newspapers or local stations don't allow the use of European cookies controls. Not enough staff or software.

That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

A night off can be a wonderful thing. I had to work late, and have a meeting scheduled noonish on Sunday. Good grief!
Thanks for the tunes, and also for all you do.
Me and Husband (omigod) are enjoying grilling, watching the birds on the feeders, and music fills the air.
We are planning another weekend adventure, and will see what shakes out.

Hey Joe,

Great tunes man! This guy is a great player. A lot of the basic style is the kind of stuff I like to try to play. Fortunately for me the blues is like bowling, you don't have to be good at it to have fun doing it. So was that Ike yesterday great, awesome player, he was really ahead of the curve. A major influence. Of another genius and at least an occasional bastard.

Thanks for the great soundscapes! Have good time off!

best all,
