Agelbert NOTE: Surly, since you are a Bona fide Journalist and News Hound, I guess you know about the fascist attempt to destroy TruthDig.


Editor 🦅 Robert Scheer was fired without cause, and in breach of contract, by Zuade Kaufman. Even ✨ Chris Hedges got fired, also on trumped up (pun intended) charges.   The remaining writers are all on strike. Good for them.

I'm a little tired right now but tomorrow I'll post some stories from Popular Resistance covering that. It seems that Popular Resistance has taken over the TruthDig mantle, at least for now. Even Mr. Fish, the TruthDig political cartoonist 👍, is posting on the Popular Resistance web site now.

Yes I am. Have been plugged in to Popular resistance ever since Jack Balkwill (who I know) merged his state with theirs. He gave up LUV News in the face of repeated (and expensive) DDOS attacks.

You might also seek out Intrepid Report for progressive news.

Thank you for that info. I'll keep Intrepid Report on my list of reliable news outlets.



Letter From Truthdig's Editor-In-Chief, Robert Scheer
By Robert Scheer. To Zuade Kaufman: I want to register my strongest possible disagreement with your unilateral decisions to bar me from the Truthdig site, close the site, and discharge Truthdig's employees. Each of your actions represents a violation of Truthdig's Operating Agreement, which requires that you and I agree on actions such as those you have taken on your own. To make myself clear, you have not consulted me, and I disagree. Although you claim that your actions have been required by Truthdig's shaky financial situation, it appears that you have not taken into account funds that have been raised from third parties to...

Update: Statement From Striking Truthdig Workers
By Truthdig Staff. On Wednesday night, amid reports that much of the country was going into quarantine indefinitely, Truthdig's staff received an email with the subject line "Re: Truthdig." The email was to inform us that Truthdig LLC was being dissolved and that our positions at the publication had been terminated. Chris Hedges, the site's most widely read columnist, was among those fired, despite the fact that he raised grant money to cover his own salary. "Thank you for all you've done at Truthdig," an attached form letter read. "We really appreciate your contributions. We did great work together. We wish you the best in your future endeavors. 

American Suez?: The Costs Of Bombing Iran
By Maj. Danny Sjursen. Decaying empires behave badly.  Late-stage imperial states easily fall prey to perilous insecurity and irrationality, and tend to lash out like wounded, cornered animals.  Perhaps it must be so: naught but a collective macro-reflection of the human condition.  Unfortunately, many thousands - often millions - of innocents tend to die at the denouement of empire.  "Dirty wars" usually ensue during the imperial endgame.  That time is near, it seems, for the American hegemon.  There’s hardly “dirtier,” or nastier, proof of “bad behavior” than recent reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo...

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
