Finally! A Jimmy Dore Scandal that is totally true

Proof! Proof that discredits Jimmy Dore!
Yes, Jimmy has been laid low by a new scandal involving him accepting money.

And then you look at it in detail.

Why else would anyone be antiwar?

I'm really starting to hate liberals.

My sentiments, precisely, gj. But what then does this motley c99 assemblage represent? Do we represent anything other than ourselves? Does any Partei really do this? Bless my pixels, a person just can't smooth all the sharp corners and still remain true to the story.

I'll take the word of a two-martini/3 bowl Jimmy Dore than any rotten apple that fell not far from the neoliberal tree.

The Association for Investment in Popular Action Committees, an umbrella nonprofit based in the San Francisco Bay area, ostensibly exists to raise awareness of “social justice issues that are key to sustainable world peace.”

“The funds provided by this Award enable these courageous journalists to continue their work in an environment that penalizes them for their clarity of vision and willingness to expose the powerful,” the award website states.

The Syria Solidarity Movement was established in 2013 to facilitate a North American speaking tour for Mother Agnes, as per its website. Mother Agnes is a pro-Assad nun who argued that the hundreds of victims of a 2013 Ghouta Sarin attack were planted by anti-government insurgents, not killed by the state

Sure looks like these guys are dragging dead Syrian children to planted for one of their photo ops.

In a statement, a spokesperson for The Young Turks, founded by former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur, said the company was not aware of the payments. It appeared unperturbed by one of its former hosts taking cash from AIPAC a group that lobbies for the regime whose atrocities that host denied, suggesting the company abides by the same ethical standards as the mainstream media.

So who else made the Assad lover list?

Two dozen people or news organizations have been awarded the prize thus far. That could mean as much as $120,000 in prize money for pro-Assad media, assuming the same rate is the same across the board, with other winners including Ajamu Baraka, the U.S. Green Party’s 2016 candidate for vice president; Kevork Almassian, a Syrian activist employed by the far-right party Alternative for Germany; and Caitlin Johnstone, an Australian who describes herself as a “100 percent reader-funded journalist” and who promoted the theory that DNC staffer Seth Rich, not the Russian government, was responsible for leaking Democratic emails ahead of the last U.S. presidential election.

MintPress News, which in 2013 published an article attributing chemical attacks in Syria to anti-Assad rebels — the piece was attributed to a journalist who denied authoring the story — was awarded an undisclosed amount of money; three of its regular contributors, Whitney Webb, Finian Cunningham and Max Blumenthal, also received the award, as did Rania Khalek, a Russian state media personality who in 2018 was found to be surreptitiously on the Kremlin payroll. RT regular Vanessa Beeley, who served on the steering committee of the Syria Solidarity Movement, also received an award for her regime-friendly commentary. Beely’s speciality is attacking the White Helmets, a volunteer group that rescues victims of Syrian, Russian and U.S. bombing raids.

More laughter. The list looks like lots of people who wade through the poo and tells us what the truth is after sites like Bellingcat feed us bullcrap. I wonder if we will ever make the list?

I wouldn't call Molly a liberal. Nor Bellingcat.

America is a pathetic nation; a fascist state fueled by the greed, malice, and stupidity of her own people.

@snoopydawg definition per the Cambridge dictionary:

adverb
in a way that appears or claims to be one thing when it is really something else

So could Crabby tell us what the Popular Action Committees actually exist to do if Crabby denies that their stated mission is true? And show us the evidence for that claim?

This is how you can right away identify propaganda. It starts with including a few weasel words to create a narrative.

My favorite line was something like "Torturer Gina Haspel broke through the glass ceiling to become the director of the CIA and picked up one of the glass shards and started torturing people,
(10 min)

Not so surprising that he's being targeted. I bet it will backfire and make him more popular.

to terrorists?

I believe that is the open-ended qualifier to become a domestic terrorist and falling under the Patriot Act and losing habeas corpus.

Seems to me this is a bit more nefarious than it seems on first blush and requires a bit more than an eye roll.

I could see this being a full court press to criminalize dissent. I mean, "He's taking money from ASSAD!!!! AND giving ASSAD positive media coverage in exchange. If that ain't aiding and comforting the Enemy™, I don't know what is."

While I logged in to craft a witty comment on this essay, as I was getting ready to write the idea of it actually being a politically motivated criminal trap did cross my mind. Now it can't stop running back and forth and bouncing around in there.

“Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.” ~ Sun Tzu

defined? And by whom? Why is Saudi Arabia not an enemy? When and why did someone put Syria on an enemy list?
Is Turkey our enemy?
Was Ecuador an enemy under Correa? Brazil under Lula? Will Venezuela be removed from the enemy list when Maduro is run out of government (or killed?)
This is interesting, but baffling.

@on the cusp

any country who doesn't allow the US to plunder its people and environment.

Another view might be any country which helps its own people more than the transnational corporate oligarchy.

Two tries at it anyway....
