A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Shame on "Democrats" Adam Schiff and Bill Maher for bemoaning Trump's embrace of tyrants in contrast to the USA's longstanding history of defending human rights, democracy and freedom abroad. As Glenn Greenwald recently pointed out, something well known for decades, the USA has invariably embraced ghastly foreign tyrants - in Guatemala, Iran, South Vietnam, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and recently, in Honduras after Obama and Hillary greenlighted the coup in Honduras in 2009.

Greenwald's piece, " Trump’s Support and Praise of Despots Is Central to the U.S. Tradition, Not a Deviation From It" should be read by all, especially Rep. Schiff and Maher.

For shame, Maher, for shame! Reader Supported News should offer readers a corrective, or at least link this interview to Greenwald, Noam Chomsky, William Blum's book, "Killing Hope," etc.
