Today's SYSTEM UPDATE exploring this topic debuts at 2:00 p.m. ET on @theintercept  's YouTube channel, with @ShantMM  as my guest.

Here's the full @RollingStone  episode where I discuss the Reality Winner case further with @mtaibbi  and @kthalps  , along with numerous other topics including the dangers from the Assange prosecution, Joe Biden and the Democrats, going on Fox, etc.:

It is just bizarre how eager many media elites and establishment liberals are to deny the degrading effects of material deprivation and erase class analysis, replacing it with an exclusive focus on culture & identity demonization. Downward mobility is a central fact of US life.

This is what establishment media stars were feeding people for years, profiting off of with ratings & books, and showering themselves with Pulitzers for saying. What else can they do to salvage their humiliation other than blame Mueller, not themselves?

Great @CarlBeijer  essay on the toxic, anti-intellectual and historically ignorant (but growing) tendency in some left-liberal sectors to deny the role of class and poverty as a causal factor, in favor of an exclusive focus on identity and hurling slurs:

As Joe Rogan’s Platform Grows, So Does the Media and Liberal Backlash. Why?

@mtracey  If he just loses a free and fair election & vacates the White House in favor of the judicially declared winner, so much of the #Resistance  edifice -- all the ratings and profits and social media booms -- will collapse as a fraud, so they need him to mount a Nazi-refusal to leave.

One of the creepiest and most dystopian things I've seen since the pandemic began: a terrifying camera-equipped remote-controlled robot patrols Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park in Singapore to -- for now -- warn about social distancing. Look at the fear. Story:

Pursuant to the new moral stricture promulgated this week by the NYT & CNN -- that Mount Rushmore is a shameful monument to racism and white supremacy -- both CNN and Bernie Sanders ought to repent for this praise they jointly heaped on it in 2016:

After fighting a brutal war & then serving eight years as US President, here was Dwight Eisenhower's 1961 warning about the menacing joint power of the US military and the private arms industry. This was before Vietnam, the Reagan Cold War build-up and post-9/11 militarism:

Bolivian Police cutting the indigenous flag - which had been Bolivia's 2nd official flag - off their uniforms. This coup is literally the opposite of restoring democracy, which is how it's being depicted in the western press. It's violent, racist, imperial Christian fanaticism:

The Mueller investigation is complete and this is a simple fact that will never go away: not one single American was charged, indicted or convicted for conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election - not even a low-level volunteer. The number is zero.

Mike Bloomberg systematically breaks all his promises made to campaign staffers - many of whom left jobs in reliance on those promises - by laying them off in the middle of a pandemic to give the money to the DNC instead, which happily takes it:

This is awesome. Portland's city officials - police, judges, mayor - insisted they have the right to search people's trash with no warrants. So local alt-weekly () went through their trash and published the contents (via )

There’s no getting around the fact - no matter how much one wants to - that Rachel@maddow ’s performance on Russiagate was one of the most paranoid, unhinged and fact-free debacles of sustained media propaganda, fear-mongering, conspiracy-mongering and deceit in many years:

The disappearing act of Joe Biden is fucking unbelievable. How can you not have him front and center appearing by videos, conducting remote meetings, answering questions? It's like they're trying to exacerbate every suspicion & concern, with other people tweeting in his name.
