from Humans Are Free:
Feminist Sophie Lewis has written a new book in which she argues that in order to ‘dismantle capitalism’ it’s necessary to ‘abolish the family’.
Lewis was interview by left-wing website the Nation under the headline Want to Dismantle Capitalism? Abolish the Family.
According to the piece, patriarchy and capitalism combined to produce alienated workers who became “instruments of production” for the men who lorded over them.”

The 2020 presidential campaign season has already begun.
New Hampshire, like Iowa, is an early primary state. That’s why Joe Biden went to New Hampshire last Monday and Tuesday, May 13-14, 2019, blabbering about “restoring the working class in America”.
But Biden also said something that should alarm every gun-owner.
Unreported by other news media, AWR Hawkins of Breitbart is the only reporter of the 6-7 other media accounts I’ve read who took note of this. In Hawkins’ words:
Politico has viewed three-and-a-half hours of footage from Bernie and Jane Sanders’ 1988 ‘honeymoon’ to the Soviet Union, and judging by their description, it looks like the footage might make it difficult for Sanders to distance himself from his support for Communist regimes both the USSR and the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, where he also visited.
Sharyl Attkisson discusses Spygate from the position of the Obama intelligence apparatus having a history of political surveillance they needed to cover-up. A Trump victory in 2016 sent panic throughout the intelligence apparatus.

Police fined a pedestrian £90 for disorderly behaviour after he tried to cover his face when he saw a controversial facial recognition camera on a street in London.
Officers set up the camera on a van in Romford, East London, which then cross-checked photos of faces of passers-by against a database of wanted criminals.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has begun responding to queries by the press about a leaked document which contradicts official OPCW findings on an alleged chemical weapons attack last year in Douma, Syria. The prepared statement they’ve been using in response to these queries confirms the authenticity of the document.
To recap, a few days ago the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (WGSPM) published a document signed by a man named Ian Henderson, whose name is seen listed in expert leadership positions on OPCW documents from as far back as 1998 and as recently as 2018. It’s unknown who leaked the document and what other media organizations they may have tried to send it to.

GMO Impossible Burger tests 11x higher for Glyphosate weed killer residue than Beyond Meat burger.
Two days ago a Monsanto trial jury awarded the plaintiffs over $2 billion dollars, for the connection between the glyphosate-based herbicide, Roundup, and their cancer. Today, Moms Across America announces that the Impossible Burger* tested positive for glyphosate. The levels of glyphosate detected in the Impossible burger by Health Research Institute Laboratories were 11 X higher than the Beyond Meat Burger. The total result (glyphosate and it’s break down AMPA) was 11.3 ppb. Moms Across America also tested the Beyond Meat Burger and the results were 1 ppb.

April 30 was the real April Fools’ Day in Venezuela: They proclaimed a coup and nobody came.
The fiasco of the latest obviously unsuccessful US attempt to topple twice democratically-elected President Nicolas Maduro made a laughing stock of the US government throughout the world and is now exposing new splits in the Trump administration in Washington. It is also exposing a dangerous but also ridiculous myth that Washington has credulously swallowed for generations – the idea that National Security Adviser John Bolton is actually competent.
No one among the carefully trained castrated geldings of the US mainstream news media and their pseudo-liberal and libertarian outliers has ever dared to ask how able Bolton actually is. He is held in awe and even fear for his supposed brilliant intellect and for his undoubted energy and relentless determination to push the policies he supports with tunnel vision and fanatical relentlessness as hard as he can.
