Noam Chomsky slams 'liberal American intellectuals' for refusing to admit US is a 'leading terrorist state'
Although left-wing author Noam Chomsky was glad to see former President Donald Trump voted out of office in 2020, that doesn't mean that he doesn't have some vehement criticisms of the Democratic Party and American liberalism — including Democratic views on foreign policy. And during a recent interview with progressive journalist/author Chris Hedges, Chomsky stressed that American liberals have a hard time admitting how bad U.S. foreign policy can be.
Chomsky, now 92, appeared on Hedges' show, "On Contact," which airs on RT America — the U.S. division of the Russian cable news outlet RT. Hedges, like Chomsky, has been extremely critical of the Democratic Party."
A New York man who was caught on video smoking a joint inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 has been arrested after his co-workers gave his information to authorities, the Daily Beast reports.
James Bonet has been charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authorities and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
Convicted scam artist Anna Delvey, who is currently residing in prison after a stint in New York City's prison complex on Rikers Island, took time out during her incarceration to troll Donald Trump with advice on how to get along with fellow inmates and guards should he meet her fate if convicted on criminal charges. "
According to Dazed, Delvey, whose real name is Anna Vadimovna Sorokina, is currently serving a four to 12-year sentence after being charged and convicted in multiple counts of attempted grand larceny, and theft of services while defrauding wealthy associates and New York c City luxury hotels. In 2017, Delvey was arrested in New York, with prosecutors claiming she scammed her victims out of approximately $275,000.
Delvey still maintains a website and this past week posted prison do's and dont's for the former president who is facing legal problems of his own.
Under the tongue-in-cheek title "Rikers Island 1010 for Donald Trump, " she wrote, "Depending on Cyrus Vance's mood, there is approximately an 87% chance you will get closely acquainted with NYS criminal justice in the nearest future. Judging from my own experience and considering your vast resources and high incentive to flee, it's inevitable you will end up remanded and sent to Rikers Island, which for a while was my terrain. I feel that it's my duty to share my newfound wisdom with someone who will have a plentiful of time and opportunity to put it to a good use—you," before impishly adding, "So many memories!"
Delvey shared nuggets of wisdom with the former leader of the free world, including, "First and foremost: get out of suicide watch/mental observation as soon as you possibly can—it's neither a good look, nor something you want to be remembered by. That's where the real crazies end up, unless they manage to fool the staff into thinking otherwise, and if you aren't dying to learn everything about pros and cons of S1, you don't want to be around that kind of energy. First impressions matter, and rolling into this jail while smelling of desperation and wallowing in self-pity is definitely not a way to commence your journey."
