Such a quiet attack

Tweet (Confirmed Miscer):

"Bomb back better" 

Tweets (Aaron Maté):
"To remind Iran who’s boss — rather than conduct the diplomacy he promised — Biden opts to act as ISIS’ Air Force. (That’s who “Iranian-backed militia” have long been fighting)

And just as Obama greenlit a mass murder campaign in Yemen to assuage Saudi anger over the Iran deal, I wouldn't be surprised if bombing an Iranian target is Biden's way of making nice with Mohammed Bone Saw for the pending release of the Khashoggi report." 
Tweet (Kevin Gosztola) (you can break international law and start down the road to WWIII, but it's OK, as long as you are polite and respectful about doing it!):
"Liberal celebration of covert acts of war."
Tweet (Mike Cernovich):
"$2,000,000,000 for Raytheon. 
Oh by the way did you know their Secretary of Defense was on their Board? 
But he’s a person of color so it’s all good. 
P.S. You’re not getting that $2,000 check."
Tweet (Josh Marshall) (Greenwald is in superb form these days, and Marshall is brain dead with TDS, not to mention a WWIII-mongerer):
"it’s remarkable how @ggreenwald’s personal grievances and disputes with leading Democrats have led him to become a leading supporter of fascism in the US"
"Lab Rats to the Front!" (Armstrong).

Tweet (Alex Lawson) (can you imagine if you took a time machine back to 1972 and told people that Joe Biden would be the 'woke' Assholian President fifty years in the future, having won with 10 million more votes than anyone has ever received!):
"Reading “We’ve Got People” by @ryangrim and this is a ‘72 Joe Biden quote"
"Biden’s Journey: Change Is Imperceptible" (Giraldi).

Tweet (Sarah Abdallah):
"$1,500,000,000,000 stolen from American taxpayers to fund a F-35 warplane program that failed.

While 12 million American children live in poverty.

This is the military-industrial-complex at work."
Tweet (Ben Norton):
"In case it wasn't obvious who is really in charge in Ecuador, the corrupt right-wing Lenín Moreno regime (which has 8% approval) is trying to ram through a law privatizing the central bank. That law was written in the USA.

This isn't just US imperialism; it's neocolonialism"
"Cuba has assisted almost one third of the world’s population in health care".

Thread by Yaneer Bar-Yam on the pandemic and Dharavi.

"Repressed IRISH SAVANT Unrepressed" (Cleburne).

Tweet (Ben Norton) (Patreon is Kushner family, so there should be no shock at this) (see tweet by Hive Blockchain and "9 Decentralized, P2P and Open Source Alternatives to Mainstream Social Media Platforms Like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Reddit"):
"Silicon Valley censorship never ends: Now Patreon is suspending users unless they delete political content that it doesn't like 
It doesn't matter if you disagree with the content or political viewpoint; this is a precedent that can & will be used to expand the censorship dragnet"
"Twitter’s Attempt to Suppress Grayzone Reporting Backfires as Warning Label Becomes Meme" (MacLeod).

The trots dabble in literary criticism (they are not wrong):  "Amanda Gorman at the Biden inauguration: “O sing, sweet lucre,” or, The poet wore Prada" (Clayton/Walsh).  "O sing, sweet lucre" might have been a better title for today's post.

"NBC pulls ‘Nurses’ episode accused of being anti-Semitic" (DeNinno).  "A dead goyim leg" would also have been a great title.

Tweet (Fredrick Brennan):
"I ordered Uber Eats and the delivery driver kind of looks like my grandmother and that makes me sad that people out here struggling so much they have to deliver cripples cheeseburgers to have heat"

"Op-Ed: There's A Difference Between 'Cancel Culture' And Wanting To Throw Commies Out Of A Helicopter" (The Babylon Bee).
