    A tweet from Trump today:

    Quote The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

    All the above is all and only my opinion - all subject to change and not meant to be true for anyone else regardless of how I phrase it.

    RT Chief Editor on Bullying: The More They Pick on Us the More Publicity We Get

    Sputnik
    Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:51 UTC


    Margarita Simonyan, the editor-in-chief of RT and Rossiya Segodnya © Sputnik

    RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan has said that constant attacks on the network from Western mainstream media are good for publicity, as they help to increase the channel's audience.

    Western attacks on the RT news network are good for its publicity, editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said Saturday in an interview to a Russian television channel.
    "The more they pick on us the more publicity we get and the more people ask themselves: What did they do wrong? What if I go and see for myself?" Simonyan said in an excerpt from the interview, to be aired by NTV on Monday night.
    She said RT dominated US media headlines during last year's presidential elections.
    "There was hardly any outlet that did not throw mud at us. It's election time in France and the story is repeating itself. We are the main heroes again."
    She accused the West of trying to gag the channel by passing regulations and even pressuring Google into curbing the circulation of links to RT stories.

    The European Parliament passed a resolution last November where it described the RT as a threat to Europe's unity and drew a parallel between it and propaganda disseminated by Daesh, a terrorist group outlawed in Europe, Russia and many other countries.

    In a comment on the EP motion, Russian President Vladimir Putin praised the channel for doing a good job and said the resolution showed that the Western concept of democracy was apparently degrading.

    The russian Ministry for external Affairs has now set up a Website where the Russians will Show "Fake News" that regard Russia in foreign Media.
    The Goal is to Point out and Show Publications that clearly are fabricated "Fake News" in order to inform and stop the spreading, said Maria Sacharowa. For example the: Russia will give Snowden to the US. By the Way, the Avalon Thread about that can be moved to the "Hoax" section now for sure !

    Couldn't help but have a good chuckle fit with this one:

    Lavrov deep-fries Merkel: US tapped your phone, but you're whining about 'Russian hacking'?

    Matthew Allen Russia Insider
    Wed, 22 Feb 2017 22:07 UTC


    Russia's Foreign Minister points out the obvious. Again.

    It's not even up for debate — Sergei Lavrov is in a league of his own. Russia's Foreign Minister mutilates Washington soundbites in his sleep and eats NATO press releases for breakfast — no salt.

    As you are well aware, Sergei dropped a payload of painful truth on Mike Pence's smug, smarmy face during the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. But that was just a warm-up. Pence is a small fish in a big ocean of idiots.

    On the sidelines of the Munich conference, Lavrov participating in a meeting with top diplomats from the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine).

    Angela Merkel used this opportunity to lecture Lavrov and the rest of the audience about the dangers of Russian hacking.

    You think Lavrov just sat there and took it on the chin? No. When it was his turn to speak, he reminded the entire world that Angela Merkel's phones were tapped by her "ally", and that this is a confirmed fact, and that Angela Merkel is a sad puppet:
    The German story was shown to be a fact. You know when it happened, several years ago. It was confirmed that top officials had had their phones tapped. And the other day there was a leak showing that the 2012 presidential election campaign in France coincided with cyber-espianage on the part of the CIA. And talking to a journalist today, a CIA representative said that he had no comments to offer. So I repeat: show us the facts.
    So basically Lavrov can check "told Merkel to her face that she's a miserable witch" off his bucket list.

    A true hero. Watch (starts around 6:40):

    Freedom of speech under attack – where are the reactions?

    by Pål Steigan • 22. februar 2017
    Translation: Anne Merethe Erstad


    A massive campaign to reduce freedom of speech is conducted all over Europe. It started out under the pretext of fighting “hate speech” on the Internet. In the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s election defeat in the U.S., the concept of “fake news” has come into fashion, and is now being used as the main excuse to reduce freedom of speech. This isn’t merely a political campaign. The EU has passed radical guidelines and in several countries there are now draft legislations to introduce extensive fines and even imprisonment for statements. Europe hasn’t faced such grave threats against democracy since the days of fascism – but where are the reactions?

    EU fronting censorship

    The EU commission and the IT giants Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft have agreed to a Code of Conduct, according to The Guardian, May 2016.

    Under the pretext of fighting racism and xenophobia, they introduce regulations which make swift and effective censorship of social media and other Internet platforms possible. The IT companies commit to remove “illegal hate speech” within 24 hours and make such content unavailable. So, they start out saying it’s all about fighting “racism and hatred against peoples”, but further on it becomes rather hazy: “content that promotes incitement to violence and hateful conduct”. What does that mean? Promoting demonstrations or protests which the authorities deem as “incitement to violence”? And what is “hateful conduct”?



    After Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the U.S. presidential election, the globalists claimed the spreading of “fake news” had caused the outcome. “Fake news” in social media, that is. However, they have not been able to present any serious research to support their claim.

    Less than a month after the U.S. election, the EU and NATO agreed to start fighting “fake news”.

    The Norwegian news agency NTB wrote:

    “A joint analysis describing how disinformation is spread, including via social media, shall be compiled within the end of the year.

    The two offices will cooperate on training and seminars, and they will make a joint effort to “improve the quality and range of a positive narrative”.

    Last year the EU External Action Service (EEAS) established a work group against disinformation from Russia. This work group – East Stratcom – receives help from experts, journalists, civil servants, think tanks and organisations from more than 30 countries in order to crush myths and fact check articles.”

    Here the EU and NATO state that they shall integrate journalists, civil servants and organisations in what cannot be referred to as anything but a propaganda war.



    Extreme draft legislations

    The coalition government in Germany has launched draft legislations which will make it possible to issue fines at the size of 500.000 Euro each time “fake news” published on Facebook aren’t removed within 24 hours. We’re talking 4.5 million Norwegian kroners – in every single case – which must qualify as extreme.

    This is happening without anyone even attempting to reflect upon the concept of “fake news”. The story about the incubators in Kuwait was false, and the consequences were grave, because it justified the first war against Iraq. The story of Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” was “fake news”, which laid the foundation for the second war against Iraq and lead to massive loss of lives and horrible destructions. Both these stories were published time and time again, with no critical distance, by de large media corporations. CNN, BBC, and, in Norway; “Aftenposten”, NRK (The Norwegian Broadcasting System), NTB and so on.

    The legislators haven’t offered any assessment as to how large fines should be issued against these media organisations for publishing such fake news. And of course they haven’t, because the draft legislations do not aim for main stream media. They target anyone who tries to undermine the campaigns of lies, distortions and concealments in the most powerful news outlets. The Internet and social media have – at least for a little while – undermined the media monopoly of the political and economic elite. This is the monopoly the extreme draft legislations try to win back, by suggesting the most dictatorial legislations since the age of Hitler.



    Denmark and Italy

    Both Denmark and Italy have proposed similar bills.

    A cross-party draft legislation in the Italian Senate suggests huge fines and even imprisonment of individuals or media that “undermine” democracy and publish “false, exaggerated or biased” news online and refuse to change the content within 24 hours.

    Ordinary reporting of “fake news” qualifies to 5000 Euro fines, while “hate campaigns against individuals” or stories “that aim to undermine democratic process” can lead to a 10.000 Euro punishment. News that may “cause public fear” or “harm common interests” may be punished with “no less than two years in prison”.

    January 12th the Danish Department of Justice sent a proposal out for comment concerning a new law on blocking web sites. Jesper Lund, member of EDRi IT-Pol, Denmark, writes:

    “This step has been expected for a couple of months as part of the government’s action plan against extremism and radicalism on the Internet. Denmark holds opt-outs from European Union policies in relation to justice and domestic policies, so the new EU counterterrorism directive including an optional right to block web sites, does not apply to Denmark.

    In spite of the focus on extremism and radicalism on the outside, the draft legislation comprises a wide range of possible criteria for blocking web sites. The bill entails that a web site may be blocked if there is reason to believe its content breaks Danish criminal law. Any breach on the criminal legislation, including a new, extensive part defined in paragraph 119a concerning harassment of public servants – which includes far more than insults and libels – may be reason to block.”

    Where are the reactions?

    Extreme fines, censorship, militarising of the opinion-formers (NATO), banning, blocking and imprisonment – for speech. These are extraordinary steps towards dictatorship. So, one would expect a storm of protests from politicians on the left, or perhaps just as much from politicians on the right, protecting conservative values. One would expect PEN clubs, and in Norway; “Fritt ord” (a foundation supporting free speech), “Journalistlaget” (The Norwegion union of journalists) and newspapers like “Klassekampen” (Class struggle) to enter the barricades for free speech – against the authorities’ eagerness to censor. One would expect that at least the Norwegian political parties on the left, such as SV (The Socialist Left Party) and Rødt (The Red Party) chose the fight against censorship and “forced opinions” as main issues in their political struggle.

    Perhaps I don’t pay attention well enough. Perhaps there have been some protests I didn’t discover. I would be pleased to stand corrected. On this point I really wish I was wrong. But from what I can see, there is no movement of protests against this massive attack on freedom of speech and democracy. I do have some thoughts on the issue, why it has come to this. But I will get back to that point later.

    Project Veritas released 119 hours of raw audio in a WikiLeaks style dump, with over 100 more hours still yet to be released. The audio was secretly recorded in 2009 by an anonymous source inside CNN’s Atlanta headquarters who we are identifying as Miss X. The tapes contain soundbites from current and previous CNN employees Joe Sterling, Arthur Brice, and Nicky Robertson, as well as numerous others. Project Veritas is also offering a $10,000 award for content that exposes media malfeasance.

    The links below will take you to two articles well worth reading and understanding.

    The first article speaks to the revival of America under Trump. The second article, by Jon Rappoport, speaks to how the "deep state" is hell-bent upon "Watergating" Trump all in the name of globalism and corporatism, because Trump is, like Nixon was, a threat to the globalist. (Note: I suspect that if they can't "Watergate" Trump, they will attempt to "Kennedy" him.)

    Rappoport also makes a brief reference to the recently formed Organization For Action that is headed up by Barry Sotero, a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama. There is much significance in the fact that this organization is called "Organization For Action", and not "Organization For America." Please do some looking into that. OFA is where Obama the usurper, and his handlers, intend to continue the destruction of America by taking action against it.

    One of the Major german News Papers (Der Spiegel) is trying to connect Trump and Alex Jones directly:

    Their Headline (translated):

    Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones
    The Man that puts the Lies in Trumps Ear

    Moderator Alex Jones is Americas highest Conspiracy Theorist. His most powerful Listener: US President Trump. The Story of an alarming Alliance.

    (Then they Show the worst Picture they could find of Alex Jones):


    And then the Article rants and rants on ....

    It´s a premium Article that one has to pay for, but the first two pages are accessable for everyone:
    http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/donald...a-1136222.html


    That fits the Storyline that Podesta is trying to push (or is it Skippy Boy ?, I am confused here).
