Glenn Greenwald called out neoconservatives on Tucker Carlson’s show on Friday.
Greenwald specifically called out journalists and columnists clamoring for war with Iran. He also expressed disbelief with how certain journalists, who get foreign policy matters wrong, end up getting cushy gigs in the journalist space.
He singled out Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic, in particular, for being wrong about the Iraq War. The journalist claimed that “Jeffrey Goldberg’s articles won a national magazine award for creating a grotesque conspiracy that resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of people.”
Greenwald concluded, “Not only should he not be in journalism, he should be out of decent society.”
When Tucker asked Greenwald about the bipartisan fetish for war, the progressive journalist responded that war “is exciting, so it drives media ratings, it makes people buy newspapers.”
Greenwald even cited the example of Ben Shapiro’s hawkish tweets, where he said, “Disproportionate response to attacks on US assets are a good way of showing our enemies that we will mash them if they continue to escalate.”
In his view, Shapiro’s comments are “something that people say when they go through life feeling inadequate, and without any kind of purpose or strength, so it gives people strength.”
The past week has had political commentators up in arms after President Trump decided to not strike Iran after it allegedly shot down an America drone in international waters. Ben Shapiro was one of the people notably calling for decisive military action.
Thankfully, for the America First crowd, Trump did not tow the neocon line.
Although not in the America First camp, Glenn Greenwald’s anti-war journalism has provided a strong defense against the calls for intervention from both neoliberals and neoconservatives in the Washington sphere.
Him and Tucker Carlson will likely be some of the loudest voices for non-interventionism in the next year.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
