U.S. ‘News’ Media And Intel Agencies Blame Moscow For Trump Election

CNN, "mainstream media" paid to spew propaganda, lies    

By Eric Zuesse

On November 30th, Buzzfeed bannered “Intel Officials Believe Russia Spreads Fake News”. Their ‘reporter’ (that is, stenographer of U.S. government propaganda) opened: “US intelligence officials believe Russia helped disseminate fake and propagandized news as part of a broader effort to influence and undermine the presidential election, two US intelligence sources told BuzzFeed News.”

‘They’re doing this continuously, that’s a known fact,’ one US intelligence official said, requesting anonymity to discuss the sensitive national security issue. ‘This is beyond propaganda, that’s my understanding,’ the second US intelligence official said. The official said they believed those efforts likely included the dissemination of completely fake news stories. One intelligence official said, ‘In the context, did Russia attempt to influence the US elections; the aperture is as wide as it can possibly be.’”

Then, there was this:

“One of the intelligence officials who spoke to BuzzFeed News said the lack of clarity had proven to be a challenge in combating the propaganda efforts.

‘The real unanswered question is, why did they do it?’ the second US intelligence official said. ‘Is it because they love Donald Trump? Because they hated Hillary Clinton? Or just because they like undermining Western democracies?’

On this, the official said, there was no consensus.”

Even before the new U.S. President, Donald Trump, comes into office, the U.S. Establishment (of which buzzfeed is a Democratic Party mouthpiece) is trying to de-legitimize him, by alleging that he’s an ‘enemy’-agent, Vladimir Putin’s fool or worse.

This anti-Russian campaign continues the U.S. Establishment’s, and U.S. ‘news’media’s, war for Hillary Clinton (the U.S. aristocracy’s approved agent) and against Donald Trump, which propaganda-campaign during the Presidential contest was exemplified by such ‘news’-reporting as this, on 10 October 2016:

Whatever the actual truth of this matter might be (and it’s certainly not what the U.S. ’news’ media are pumping): trusting the U.S. Government to be delivering that truth would be foolhardy, after, for example, George W. Bush and his Administration having lied this nation into invading Iraq in 2003 and the U.S. propaganda-media such as The New York Times and Washington Post having reported stenographically the Government’s lies and suppressed the contrary known truths — and the U.S. ‘intelligence’ agencies that had pumped the lies became blamed afterward for it all, as if they had originated the ‘errors’ — even the cover-ups were then lies, because the lies originated in the President of the United States and the U.S. ‘news’ media refused to publish the disproofs of them.

CNN takes the lead in anti-Russian, anti-Trump propaganda

Only fools trust the U.S. Government and its ‘news’ media anymore. After all, how many of these ‘news’ media have reported the truth that the Obama Administration perpetrated in February 2014 a bloody coup (fronted by anti-corruption demonstrations) to overthrow the Moscow-friendly Ukrainian government headed by Viktor Yanukovych and replace it with a fascist and even nazi (or racist-fascist) government that blames Russians (instead of, like Hitler’s nazism) Jews (because the U.S. aristocracy hates Russians, not Jews), all in order for the U.S. to be able to place missiles in Ukraine on Russia’s very doorstep? And how many reported the ethnic-cleansing operation by that new U.S.-installed government, to exterminate the residents in the region of Ukraine that had voted 90% for Yanukovych — the Ukrainian President whom Obama had just ousted?

Are the U.S. ‘news’ media and government any more trustworthy now than they were in 2002 — or in 2014?

Many of the U.S.-billionaire-owned and controlled ‘news’ media, both in the U.S. and associated aristocracies, have now officially formed a censorship-operation, called “First Draft News”, to systematize their filtering-out of facts (such as I have here linked to regarding Ukraine and Crimea) that they don’t want their respective publics to have access to.

This issue of press-control has nothing to do with the question of whether Trump was the better candidate (Americans preferred Bernie Sanders, whom the aristocracy blocked from winning the Democratic nomination), but everything to do with Trump’s inheriting a U.S. aristocracy — and its associated foreign aristocracies, and their respective press-operations — that’s hostile not only to him, but to Putin, and hoping to be able to oust both.

With ratings crashing due to anti-Trump propaganda and lies CNN now taking money from foreign governments to spew propaganda and run advertisements

In an ‘oligarchy’ (more honestly called an “aristocracy” because it’s not found only in “banana republics”) such as the U.S. Government is, this institutionalized lying is the reality; and the historical background to it can be found here and here. I presented the post-1990 portion of it here. Back in 1992, the BBC did a documentary about the history of it between the end of World War II and the end of the Soviet Union, and that’s here.

The big question now is whether Trump will go to war against them and bring crashing down the fascist operation that has controlled the U.S. Government since at least 1990 and which is commonly called “neoconservatism”.

WAYNE MADSEN: The ‘Battle Of Berlin’ Will Be Last Stand Of Globalism

Merkel, Hollande, Juncker, Tusk will all be casualties along with the EU banksters and globamist "elites"  

By Wayne Madsen

European Parliament President Martin Schulz is quitting his job in Strasbourg and aiming for higher office in Berlin. Schulz, who, in 2003, was likened by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to a Nazi concentration camp guard, appears ready to take the helm of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) in a gambit to prevent Germany from joining the ranks of the anti-European Union nations in Europe.

Schulz:  "I know nothing..."
Schulz, sensing that Angela Merkel, Germany’s Europhile Christian Democratic Union (CDU) chancellor, is in political trouble even as she announced plans to run for a fourth term in 2017, is striving to eventually take over the reins of the SPD from Merkel’s coalition partner Sigmar Gabriel. For the time being, Schulz will be happy to assume control of the Foreign Minister portfolio from the SPD’s Walter Steinmeier, who opted to become Germany’s ceremonial president.

Schulz returns to Berlin as a politically-wounded politician. The EU Parliament was about to reject Schulz for a third term as president. 

The European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, the often-inebriated champion of a federalized Europe and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, threatened to resign his own post if Schulz was rejected by the Strasbourg assembly. Schulz, sensing defeat, opted to continue the fight for a united Europe as a member of the German Bundestag and a member of Merkel’s "grand coalition" between the CDU and SPD.

Drunken globalist Juncker fails at "refugee" slave labor importation

However, the lukewarm-at-best coalition supporter of Merkel, Bavarian Prime Minister Horst Seehofer, may harbor plans to challenge Merkel for chancellor. Seehofer is a fierce critic of Merkel’s migrant policy that opened Germany’s borders to over a million mainly Muslim refugees from war zones in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Africa. Merkel, Schulz, and Gabriel continue to support the open-door migration policy even as German voters. Seehofer has crafted an anti-migration alliance with leaders of neighboring Alpine countries, particularly Austria. 

Austrian Freedom Party (OVP) presidential candidate Norbert Hofer, who is opposed to the EU and Merkel’s migrant policy, recently expressed his own views of Merkel during a presidential election debate with his pro-EU Green Party opponent. Hofer said Merkel "inflicted considerable damage on Europe when she opened the borders to refugees and, as a result, hundreds of thousands of refugees, including terrorists, have moved through Austria."

It's now Auf Wiedersehen to Merkel and her terrorist importing EU wrecking crew

Seehofer has more in common with the Austrian Freedom Party of Hofer and its leader Heinz-Christian Strache than his supposed political ally Merkel. The only thing that continues to bind the anti-migrant Seehofer to the open borders champion Merkel is the rise of Germany’s nationalistic counterpart to the OVP, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party. The anti-migrant AfD has eaten away at CDU-CSU support across Germany, with Bavaria being a notable exception. The AfD has won seats in ten state assemblies and risen to 15 percent support in political opinion polls. This "marriage of convenience" between Seehofer and Merkel may be coming to an end as the Bavarian Prime Minister sees an opportunity to challenge Merkel for leadership of the CDU-CSU union and lead an anti-migrant conservative coalition to challenge the Euro-fanatic Schulz on the national stage.

Relations between the CDU and CSU "allies" have not been this fractured since 1976 when CSU leader Franz-Josef Strauss severed the Bavarian party’s alliance with Helmut Kohl’s CDU. Seehofer understands that he has more political strength than Merkel because opinion polls of AfD supporters indicate that the Bavarian leader is more popular than the AfD’s own leader, Frauke Petry. 

Seehofer’s CSU has, therefore, adopted the tough migration policy of the AfD to woo AfD supporters. 

Seehofer’s rhetoric on migrants matches up with that of the AfD. In January 2016, Seehofer told his CSU party congress that up to three million migrants in Germany would create a "different country," adding, "the people don't want Germany, or Bavaria, to become a different country." With the anti-migrant CSU and AfD at his back, Seehofer is in a commanding position to oust Merkel from the leadership of the CDU-CSU union.

Not only has Seehofer cobbled together a working alliance with the Austrian Freedom Party but he has also united with Hungary’s anti-migrant Prime Minister Viktor Orban. 

Seehofer flew to Budapest last March to back Orban’s opposition to an EU plan, pushed by Juncker, Schulz, and Merkel, to redistribute migrants throughout the 28-member states of the EU, plus four members of the European Free Trade Association/Schengen Agreement (Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Iceland), based on a quota system. 

Seehofer also has close ties with the anti-EU and anti-migrant Swiss People's Party (SVP), which soared to 29.5 percent in 2015 elections to the lower house of the Swiss Parliament.

Seehofer has also reached out to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, who called Merkel’s migrant policy a "disaster" that only served to boost crime rates in Germany. Seehofer has invited Trump to Bavaria holding out the possibility that Trump’s first foreign trip as president could be to the Munich Security Conference in February 2017. What worries the globalists, Atlanticists, and NATO boosters the most is a Europe dominated by nationalist leaders in Germany, France, Italy, Britain, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, and other countries who will work with Trump in Washington and President Vladimir Putin in Moscow to disentangle Europe from the EU, open borders, NATO, and globalist policies. When Seehofer visited Moscow this past year and met with Putin, the SPD was sharply critical of Seehofer’s parallel foreign policy. An SPD official thundered, "Foreign policy is made in Berlin, not in Munich."

The CSU and its leader Seehofer have rejected the premise that foreign policy is only conducted in Berlin and not in Munich. Bavaria, with a long history of independence from Berlin, has seen the dominant CSU establish close links with like-minded Alpine parties, including the SVP in Switzerland, OVP in Austria, and the small German irredentist South Tyrol People’s Party (SVP) in northern Italy. Seehofer has brought tiny Liechtenstein into his Alpine alliance. On a 2015 trip to Munich to visit Seehofer, Liechtenstein Prime Minister Adrian Hasler stated, "We would like to continue to cultivate the very good climate with 'free-standing Bavaria' in the positive sense. I am therefore delighted to see a continuation of the good relations between Bavaria and Liechtenstein."

No more slave labor for frau Merkel
Seehofer also has more in common with the anti-migrant Social Democratic president of Czechia, Milos Zeman, and his party’s Czech Communist partners, than he does with his own German SPD partners. 

Seehofer can also count on anti-migrant support from Czechia’s Visegrad Four (V4) partners of Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary. Austria’s Hofer also sees common cause between Austria and the V4 on the issues of migrants and the EU.

Seehofer’s reaching out to Trump coincides with French National Front leader and 2017 presidential candidate Marine Le Pen calling Trump’s election as a "political revolution." Le Pen and other European nationalist leaders see the «revolution» as staring with the June 2016 Brexit surprise "yes" vote for the United Kingdom to leave the EU, followed by Trump’s upset victory in the American presidential election, and anticipation of a Le Pen victory in next year’s French presidential election. Le Pen has promised to hold a "Frexit" referendum on continued French membership in the EU. 

With the Euro-Atlanticist dreams of the globalists being shattered daily, Seehofer obviously sees his chance to take the helm of Germany from an increasingly unpopular Merkel and steer Germany toward a "soft landing" in the wake of a dissolution of a strong EU. Seehofer’s first task as leader of Germany would be to carefully scrap the euro and reintroduce the D-Mark in some form that could also be used by Austria, the Benelux countries, and eastern European states that choose to opt into a German-led common monetary system.

There will be no place to hide from the coming pogrom and bonfire of the Merkel "elites," globalists and EU criminal banksters

If Seehofer can take over the chancellorship of Germany from the discredited Merkel, there will be a final battle against globalization and the EU in the halls of power in Berlin. This battle will pit Seehofer and his anti-migrant and anti-EU allies against the forces led by the "concentration camp guard" Schulz. That political struggle will determine not only the future of Europe but the entire world.
