Please help Project Censored!

Hi,

We at Project Censored believe that critical media literacy education—not censorship, blacklists, privatized fact-checkers, algorithmic fixes or legislative bans—offers the best means to fight the ongoing “invasion” of fake news. This is why we continue to focus on educational outreach and support a truly free and independent press. We are a 100% donor funded non-profit and we believe in giving the people the power to support our work. We need your help now more than ever.

We thank those of you who have already donated! As a result of your generosity, we have already raised over half of our goal since launching our new website last month. However, we are still falling about $1100 short of what we need. If you believe that a vibrant and independent free press, focused on presenting transparently-sourced facts and a broad spectrum of perspectives, is necessary to educate and inform the public on key issues of the times, please consider making a one-time contribution to the Project here.  Help us end our fund drive this week so we can get back to work!

Thank you again for your support!

If the “deep state” is at war with Donald Trump, they have a funny way of showing it.

Trump’s Regime Change: Soros-style

To listen to Donald Trump and his supporters, billionaire international hedge fund mogul George Soros was an inherent part of America’s “deep state” machinery, who financed and directed “regime change” operations around the world. Under Trump, the State Department reportedly severed links to Soros and his organizations, but something strange ensued. The Trump administration is still engaged in regime change operations around the world and, furthermore, it is using some of Soros’s favorite entities, such as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) to install pro-American governments in Nicaragua, Venezuela, and other countries.

Simply put, America’s “deep state” has not gone anywhere. It is thriving under a U.S. president who revels in opaqueness and unaccountability.

NED has pulled out all the stops to overthrow the socialist governments of Venezuela and Nicaragua. These efforts recently received a boost after Colombia elected right-wing narcoterrorist-affiliated Ivan Duque as president. Duque recently met with Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio, who has become the new de facto leader of the Republican Party’s branch of NED, the International Republican Institute (IRI), following Senator John McCain being sidelined with brain cancer.

Rubio has called on Trump to subject new sanctions on the Nicaraguan Government, in addition to U.S. visa bans already imposed by Washington on Nicaraguan government officials, including members of their families. Rubio is tied closely to members of the Nicaraguan opposition, including several wealthy Nicaraguan businessmen who maintain expensive homes in south Florida and who contribute handsomely to Rubio’s political campaign coffers.

The other Republican Senator who has taken up the anti-Sandinista cause is Texas’s Ted Cruz. In June 2018, Cruz and Rubio hosted a group of Nicaraguan right-wing “civil society” activists in Washington, DC. “Civil society” is a notorious code phrase employed by Soros political meddlers around the world. The Nicaraguans’ trip to Washington had been financed by the bank accounts of NED, flush with anti-Nicaragua cash provided by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), a notorious cipher for the Central Intelligence Agency.

One of the largest recipients of anti-Sandinista USAID assistance in Nicaragua is the Institute for Strategic Studies and Public Policy (IEEPP). Its Managua operations and structure resemble the typical CIA front employed in Latin America’s dark past by Langley to disrupt political systems and economies.

Calling out the Trump administration’s embrace of neo-conservative-style regime change in Nicaragua, the European Committee of Solidarity with the Popular Sandinista Revolution stated, that the Trump administration’s actions are “a new attempt from the right-wing and U.S. imperialism against a sovereign and independent free nation and against it’s democratically elected president, Daniel Ortega.” The European groups singled out “neo-liberal” forces, which include Soros’s regime change entities, in working hand-in-glove with the Trump administration in “attacking frontally” the Ortega Executive and the Sandinista National Liberation Front.

Trump and his alt-right surrogates rail against the influence of Soros on the international stage. Yet, Trump, a con-man and simpleton without peers among the crop of current world leaders, simply projects on to others for what he, himself, is guilty. Complementing Trump’s actions to topple the Daniel Ortega government in Nicaragua, is the Soros-funded Global Witness. The London- and Washington-based group has initiated a civil strife campaign among the Miskito indigenous people of the Northern Caribbean Autonomous Region. NED and Global Witness provocateurs are trying to convince the Miskitos, targets of similar manipulation by the CIA during the Contra-led civil war of the 1980s, that the Ortega government opposes indigenous rights, when the exact opposite is true.

What you don’t know (because “our” press has not reported it) is killing them

From July 8, 2018

Yesterday, Israeli forces killed Mohammed Abu Halima, who leaves behind a wife and children. 

That is just the latest news from Gaza. 

Since the beginning of April, when the protest started, 150 people have been killed, 1,700 people wounded.

65 people have each lost a foot; 5 have lost both feet.

There are 40 people in intensive care, while roughly half the population suffers from infection due to wounds by live ammunition, gas, or rubber bullets. Many suffer from depression.

Meanwhile, the Gazans have hurt no Israelis, as their protests have been peaceful. 

They demand nothing but their rights, and electricity and water, and that Israel lift their siege. 

Amal Arafa asks you for whatever you can give the nurses there: 

"All we need from you is some help in paying for first aid and medication for the people here, so that the death toll won't increase."

Birthright walkout—and some reasonable questions—spark barbaric rage in Israel

Birthright walkout is met with vitriolic rage in Israel — ‘Radicals’ ‘You will get raped’

 

Philip Weiss on June 29, 2018
Photo of Birthright participants’ dissent posted by Danielle Raskin. This photo appeared two days before the five women walked out.

The former congressman Brian Baird once said that when you criticize Israel even privately to Israeli officials, they flip out on you, even if you’re a congressman; and this is the most important takeaway of the wonderful Birthright walkout that happened yesterday and that is now all over the Jewish press. A group of five young American Jewish women on their free propaganda trip to Israel kept demanding information about the occupation, and at last left the trip to join a tour of occupied Hebron by the Israeli dissident group Breaking the Silence. And the Israelis went crazy.

The irrational belligerence of the Israeli response to this mild form of dissent by American Jewish women is staggering, and it’s on film.

When Bethany, a dissenter, announces the walkout on the bus, the Birthright tourguide berates her and the other walkers-out in a disgraceful manner, shouting at them that they are trying to “bash” Israel and did not come with open minds or clean hearts, they are tyrants who tried to impose an agenda, and his grandfather fought the Nazis, and no Palestinian is going to force him out of here. Later he warns the women to be mindful of their security, their lives could be at stake. When all these young women did, they say calmly, was to ask questions.

And an American member of the Birthright group, who describes himself as a “teacher,” taunts the women: “Just go. Go to Palestine. Because guess what’s going to happen. You will get killed. You will get raped.”

The Israeli newssite YNet is offering characterizations of the young Jews as the pawns of “radical” anti-Israel forces, and stating that the non-Zionist group IfNotNow, which encouraged the protest, is an “extreme left” organization. IfNotNow is surely leftleaning, but it does not oppose Zionism outright, and it works earnestly inside a framework of “Jewish values,” and Jewish religious practice.

The Birthright-deserters proceeded over the last week in a collegial, if adversarial manner. Notice Danielle Raskin’s characterization of their decision:

So much of what’s powerful about #birthright is the first hand experience. After the “Israel update” talk I realized that it’s not enough just to talk about the occupation, although that’s important, but to see it for ourselves. I just wish that birthright would include that.

The Birthright dissenters announced the walkout on the tour bus in an arresting video they posted on Facebook. Bethany takes the microphone to explain their decision to the rest of the group as the bus arrives at the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

There’s a group of us on this trip who have been asking questions and trying to engage. And we have not been able to do that, and as a result, the five of us will be leaving, as we get off the bus. We’ll be going on a trip with Breaking the Silence to learn about the occupation from the perspective of Palestinians and IDF soldiers.

Bethany makes a point of thanking Golan, the tour-leader, and saying that his comments about Shabbat earlier on the trip had resonated with “my Jewish values” and hope for change. “I’m really appreciative of that moment, Golan.”

But Golan breaks in on her statement to the others:

This is not fair to me and the rest of the group… This is going to the heads of Birthright Israel right now… You pulled a fast one. You are trying to impose your opinions on the entire bus, on the entire trip, and this is not acceptable. End of story. Period. You cannot be a tyrant on this bus, not when I’m here.

He continues as the group gets off the bus:

You came here with a clear agenda from the beginning. You did not come to learn about Israel. You came to learn about Palestine. You should have gone to Breaking the Silence from the beginning.

Take my picture and quote me. Anywhere you want. You think I’m afraid of some body? I live in Israel. This is my country. I’m a Jew and this is my country and I’m not leaving anywhere. No Palestinian is going to send me away from here. My grandfather fought the Nazis and after 2000 years of Jews waiting to come back home. This is exactly what it’s all about.

If you watch this tape, no one has threatened Golan in any manner. And he responds with this violent rage. This is the same Israel where 95 percent of Jews applaud the killings of nonviolent protesters at the Gaza fence, and Benjamin Netanyahu announces that flaming kites from Gaza will be answered with an “iron fist.”

Haiti in flames (but that’s not “news”)

The NYTimes is all worked up about the plight of the Rohingya half a world away, yet doesn't bother to report what's going on right in "our own backyard." (By and large, the Great Gray Lady gives short shrift to everything that's happening in the Caribbean—and all of South America as well.)
