Trump copies Hitler
wsws.org | 2020-10-06
A video tweeted by President Trump depicting his return to the White House on October 5, 2020 after being hospitalized with COVID-19 was clearly modeled after Hitler's arrival at the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in the Nazi film Triumph of the Will.

Nathaniel Chase | workers.org | 2020-10-06

The Assange Extradition Case is an Unprecedented Attack on Press Freedom, So Why's the Media Largely Ignoring It?
Patrick Cockburn | counterpunch.org | 2020-10-06
The Assange case creates a precedent that mortally threatens freedom of the press in Britain. If Assange is extradited then any journalist who publishes information that the American authorities deem to be classified, however well-known or harmless it may be, will risk being extradited to face trial in America. The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, says that non-Americans like Assange do not enjoy First Amendment rights to free expression.

Will Artsakh (Karabagh) be the tomb of Erdogan ?
Thierry Meyssan | thealtworld.com | 2020-10-06
The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict certainly had its origins in the dissolution of the USSR, but it was revived by the will of the Turkish president. It is unlikely that he took this initiative without first referring it to Washington. This is also what President Saddam Hussein did before invading Kuwait, falling by ambition into the trap set for him and causing his downfall. | A very ancient conflict, frozen for the past 30 years: | The Turkish people define themselves as descended from the "children of the wolf of the steppes", i.e. as descendants of the hordes of Genghis Khan.

"Don't Be Afraid of COVID": Trump Removes Mask & Fuels Misinformation Effort After Leaving Hospital
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-10-06
Shocking medical experts, President Trump has returned to the White House while still infectious with the coronavirus and after more than a dozen people in Trump's orbit have already tested positive for COVID-19. Emergency room physician Dr. Dara Kass says she was "horrified" by President Trump's dismissive attitude toward a pandemic that has killed more than 200,000 people in the United States. "I had this virus," says Dr. Kass. "I never left my bedroom without an N95 mask on my face, because I was petrified of giving it to my friends and family."

Activist Who Lost Father to COVID Says Trump's White House Photo Op Was Like "Sci-Fi Horror Film"

As the highest-profile coronavirus patient in the world returns to the White House while still infectious and a danger to others, we speak with activist Kristin Urquiza, whose father died from COVID-19 earlier this year. She says President Trump's minimizing of the disease is a slap in the face to families who have lost loved ones. "I was appalled," says Urquiza. "Every single person out there who's lost a loved one to COVID, who has seen up close and personal what this virus can do, felt the same way." Urquiza, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in August about her father, is co-founder of Marked by…

As the number of people in President Trump's orbit who test positive for COVID-19 continues to grow, we meet a student journalist who is doing what the White House doesn't want the CDC to do: tracing the contacts of people who may have infected or been infected by President Trump. Benjy Renton, a Middlebury College senior, helped develop a real-time tracking tool to monitor the growing number of people in President Trump's circle who were exposed or infected with COVID-19. The site is called COVID-19 at the White House and lists over 270 contacts and 25 positive cases, so far. It uses "publicly available informat…

The program to develop a missile defense system to protect the United States mainland has existed in one form or another for nearly six decades.

Dirty tricks of the autocrats
