    I was reading this post on American Digest, "All boredom amused:" Rhyming History, Trump, and the Media as Foreseen in Network, 1976,” and wondered how the “Money Speech” might have been written A.D. (After Donald). It might have gone something like this: "You have meddled with the primary forces of nature, Mr. MAGA, and I won't have it! Is that clear?"You think you merely stopped HILLARY CLINTON’S PRESIDENCY AND PROTECTED YOUR PRECIOUS 2ND AMENDMENT. That is not the case. YOU have taken POWER AND CONTROL AWAY FROM YOUR BETTERS, DEMOCRAT PROGRESSIVES, and now YOU must put it back! It is...
  • Trump Camp Designed to Withstand This Current Media Onslaught and That’s Exactly What’s Happening

    This week, the media freak-out over nightly “bombshell” revelations regarding evidence of President Trump’s apparent malfeasance and general abject incompetence reached, perhaps prematurely, a 9.5 out of 10. It culminated with Friday’s story that Trump told a Russian spy, in the Oval Office, that he fired the FBI Director, who is a “real nut job,” because he was investigating their involvement in our election and that he had gotten rid of the problem. Within the last two weeks, there have been several stories about Trump which, in an era where the mainstream news media wasn’t coming off of eight years...

    A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump. Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets. They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations: See link for graphic... The academics based their study on seven US outlets and three European ones. In America they analyzed CNN,...
  • Mainstream Media Propaganda, from Khalidi Tape to ‘Nut Job’

    Breitbart ^ | May 19, 2017 | Joel B. Pollak
    The common element in nearly all the major New York Times and Washington Post stories about President Donald Trump this week is that they are based on source documents the outlets cannot authenticate, do not possess, admit are partial, and refuse to share. Friday’s supposed “bombshell” stories follow the same pattern. The Times reports that Trump told the visiting Russians that former FBI director James Comey was a “nut job,” and that firing him had eased “pressure” in his ability to conduct foreign policy — though the Times takes Trump to mean the legal pressure of the investigation. (That spin...

    President Donald Trump is about to resign as a result of the Russia scandal. Bernie Sanders and Sean Hannity are Russian agents. The Russians have paid off House Oversight Chair Jason Chaffetz to the tune of $10 million, using Trump as a go-between. Paul Ryan is a traitor for refusing to investigate Trump’s Russia ties. Libertarian heroine Ayn Rand was a secret Russian agent charged with discrediting the American conservative movement. These are all claims you can find made on a new and growing sector of the internet that functions as a fake news bubble for liberals, something I’ve dubbed...

    The spread of stolen emails designed to harm Emmanuel Macron was linked to US-based neo-Nazis, according to a French investigation. France’s Le Monde newspaper reported on Thursday (11 May) that a website called nouveaumartel.com, which was named as a go-to place for the purloined emails, shared the same digital infrastructure as dailystormer.com, a website created by the US neo-Nazi activist Andrew Auernheimer. The emails were dumped online on 5 May, shortly before Macron won the French presidential election by a landslide. The dump came two days after an anonymous user of an online message board called 4chan.org published fake documents...

    As you've probably seen, the latest rant from the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea", they've threatened to nuke the White House, calling the US “murderous ogres”, “robbers”, “air pirates” and “warriors who master the occult arts”. It's easy to see North Korea's rants as hyperbole. But this is literally how they actually portray America to their citizens. In North Korean propaganda, Americans literally are vicious, bloodthirsty beasts. They shoot Korean children at point blank in the head for fun. They brand them with red-hot irons. They nail written messages into their heads. They saw the tops of their heads off,...

    Will President Trump reinstate the Smith-Mundt Act? If so, this would seem to fly right in the face of claims that Trump is the biggest threat to journalism and democracy itself. At the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey said a number of curious things, but one comment in particular stood out. When asked about Russian influence in the U.S. election and the ability to combat a foreign actor’s misinformation campaign, the Director said, “We need to arm ourselves with good troll armies pushing back.” Say what? Under President Obama, the law was changed It struck...

    The Goebbels children were the five daughters and one son born to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and his wife Magda Goebbels. The children, born between 1932 and 1940, were murdered by their parents in Berlin on 1 May 1945, the day both parents committed suicide. Magda Goebbels had an older son, Harald Quandt, from a previous marriage to Günther Quandt. He was not present when his half-siblings were killed. SNIP On the following day, Magda and Joseph Goebbels arranged for an SS dentist, Helmut Kunz, to inject their six children with morphine so that, when they were unconscious, ampules...

    Without saying the words "Russia," "Hillary Clinton," or "Donald Trump," Facebook acknowledged Thursday for the first time what others have been saying for months. In a paper released by its security division, the company said "malicious actors" used the platform during the 2016 presidential election as part of a campaign "with the intent of harming the reputation of specific political targets." The paper, by two members of Facebook's threat intelligence team and its chief security officer, noted that "fake news" has been incorrectly applied as a catch-all for a variety of techniques used to influence users of the platform. The...

    I am a Carl Sagan fan from way back. His 1980 TV miniseries “Cosmos” hit me at just the right age and inflamed a lifelong love of science. But we’ve had nearly 40 years to assess the long-term effects and see how Sagan unwittingly contributed to a trend that muddled public understanding of science. This weekend’s so-called “March for Science” is a perfect example of what went wrong. All you really need to know about the “March for Science” is that it is scheduled for Earth Day. The organizers may say the march is nonpartisan and has a variety of...

    Putin propaganda hits first, claiming US plans heinous attacks on Syria Typical of leftist ideologues and regime spinmasters, Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin threw the first punch by making a completely unsubstantiated claim the United States is readying to launch an attack on the south side of Damascus. He then said that the United States will use chemical weapons against Syrian citizens and lay the blame at the feet of Bashar al-Assad.

    President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Russia had information that the United States was planning to launch new missile strikes on Syria, and that there were plans to fake chemicals weapons attacks there. Putin, standing alongside Italian President Sergio Mattarella who was in Moscow for talks, said Russia would tolerate Western criticism of its role in Syria but hoped that attitudes would eventually soften. When asked whether he expected more U.S. missile strikes on Syria, he said: "We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared ... in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs...

    Hollywood produces movies that must be designed to brainwash the American people. If the production and distribution of movies got into the hands of anyone worse than most current Hollywood producers, we would be in for an alarming reality. John W. Cones, in his book A Study in Motion Picture Propaganda, explains, “The Hollywood-based U.S. motion picture industry is controlled by a single very narrowly defined interest group. It further concludes that it is inappropriate for any such group to control a significant medium for the communication of ideas in a society that is as diverse as that in the...
