by Scott Creighton

Now I’m just mad. They got Di$info Jone$ on there… TWICE… Zero Scruples… and unNatural Sunstein News… who all spend endless hours regurgitating CIA/Mossad/Sunstein propaganda like they’re getting paid for it ( ಠ_ಠ ) and they left me off for a second time. Are you kidding?

To quote the next president: I got the best words. The best propaganda words that is and I want my damn respect!

I wrote about the Boris Nemtsov psyop, Crimea, and the Color Revolution Ukraine.  I’ve steadily been covering the destabilization Campaign in Syria and how they are destabilizing Russia with their Fake Russian protests  and the Fake Russian Spies Video

I should be on the list for my work on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 alone!

I’m constantly writing about globalizationfascism in America via the Electronic Voting Scams and all those Global Free Market Wars  we fight on behalf of our “national interests”.  For Christ’s sake… I wrote Fuck Obama

Neoliberalizing America , Neoliberalizing Russia , Neoliberalizing SyriaNeoliberalizing the Ukraine … anyone see a pattern here?

Does Di$info Jone$ or Natural News have a New McCarthyism category? I didn’t think so… Did they cover the Odessa Massacre ? I didn’t think so. Do they write about Pax Americana ? Nope. Do they tell you the truth about Sinking of the Cheonan or The ISIS Crisis or the Ukraine Color revolution? Not a chance.

Did ANY of them write that the whole “Snowden hiding in a Russian airport” was complete and total BULLSHIT other than me? Any of them?!

I’m sorry but I have to be the LEADING Russian propaganda website out there damn it all…. I want my recognition! Some of those sites on that list got on that list for republishing my work for God’s sake… where’s the fucking JUSTICE!?!

Oh screw it. I’m depressed. Maybe I should sue them to get on the list.  Anyone know a good Russian lawyer?

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride. I hope my Russian handlers don’t get wind of this. They might stop sending the checks…

… oh Goddamn it…

I really need your help! My Russian paymasters have decided to stop sending me checks… SINCE I’M NOT ON THE FUCKING PropOrNot LIST!!!

So please help out if you can

Donald Trump Kicks Off his Diminished Expectations Tour™ of 2016

Fri, 12/02/2016 - 08:34

by Scott Creighton

What do you do when you run a campaign making a whole bunch of populist promises like Barack Obama did back in 2008 and then, like Obama did, you start filling your cabinet with the exact same kinds of characters that you ran opposed to for a year and a half? When ALL of your picks embody the establishment status quo that your supporters expected you to reject? When instead of draining the swamp, you seem to be enjoying yourself rolling around in it letting the muck fill you with it’s comforting warmth?

What Obama did was get the press to keep repeating the term “pragmatic” and the phrase “3d chess” until everyone got sick of hearing them and then he just hunkered down and watched his approval ratings crash as if he didn’t really give a crap because he has no moral center.

Donald Trump and his stage managers have learned a thing or two from President Obama’s mistakes and what they have apparently decided to do is get out in front of the developing story with what I am calling the…

Diminished Expectations Tour™ of 2016

Last night Donald Trump embarked on his “Thank You” tour where he is supposedly running around from city to city saying “thanks” to his supporters for electing him president. No president elect has ever done such a thing during the transition as far as I know.

Let’s see, going out there saying “thanks” to his WWE-type fans should take about a minute and it seems to me he wouldn’t need to read a script from a teleprompter to do it.

But the teleprompters were there, his carefully scripted presentation lasted over an hour and it was covered live by CNN and Fox News and who know who else.

So was he saying “thanks” for an hour? Nope. He was re-branding his campaign. Revising the history of it. Getting out in front of the press before they started writing about his campaign pledge betrayals.

President Camacho couldn’t have done it any better.

The Trump candidate who said he knew more than the generals in terms of the never ending Global(ist) War OF Terror and that the Iraq invasion and occupation was a mistake… has given way to a president elect who openly worships at the feet of those same generals, is actively posting them all over his cabinet and now fully expects his followers to worship at their feet as well.

Gen. Mattis was slobbered all over last night by Trump when he announced he was his choice for Secretary of Defense. He might as well have brought out an effigy of the man and performed oral sex on it. Trump’s rabid fans followed suit and when Trump compared him to Patton, there was a mass ejaculation in the crowd.

Of course, Mattis was involved in the pre-planning of the Afghanistan invasion (prior to 9/11 by the way… hmmmm.) and….

As a major general, Mattis commanded the 1st Marine Division during the 2003 invasion of Iraq and subsequent stability operations during the Iraq War.[11]

Mattis played key roles in combat operations in Fallujah, including negotiation with the insurgent command inside the city during Operation Vigilant Resolve in April 2004, as well as participation in planning of the subsequent Operation Phantom Fury in November. In May 2004, Mattis ordered the 3 a.m. bombing of a suspected enemy safe house near the Syrian border, which later came to be known as the Mukaradeeb wedding party massacre, and which resulted in the locally-reported deaths of 42 civilian men, women and children who were attending a wedding celebration. Mattis stated that it had taken him 30 seconds to deliberate on bombing the location.[12]

… As head of Central Command, Mattis oversaw the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and was responsible for a region that includes Syria, Iran, Yemen.[33] The Obama administration did not place much trust in Mattis, because he was perceived to be too eager for a military confrontation with Iran.[34]

Slaughtering men, women and children at a wedding party… slaughtering the entire city of Fallujah because they dared to oppose our illegal invasion and occupation… involved in various activities in Syria, Iran and Yemen… and to top it all off, he’s a rabid warmonger when it comes to doing Tel Aviv’s bidding regarding “bomb, bomb, bomb Iran”

The Washington insiders in the Military Industrial Complex could not be happier with this choice. Mattis promises to continue all these expansionist operations overseas and as Mr. Mad Dog he promises to continue pursuing them in much the same way President Obama has over the years of his “CHANGE” presidency… by bombing people at record levels for doing nothing more than opposing our “national interests”

Diminished Expectations

Trump campaigned on opposing the status quo, kicking the lobbiests and the Goldman Sachs crooks from their safe confines inside the beltway and first and foremost his entire campaign was predicated on the fact that he as a billionaire would not be beholden to the same monied interests that Hillary Clinton served.

Goldman Sachs will run his Treasury department just like they did for Clinton, Bush and Obama. He’s appointed the wife of Mitch McConnell to head up the the Department of Transportation. A little preemptive pay-off I suppose. Billionaire globalist financiers are being spattered all over his administration like cheap Walmart Christmas lights on the The Little Pink Houses of Blue Collarland, USA.

He’s telling his fans he’s putting them in there because he doesn’t want to post “losers” in these positions.. he wants “killers” instead. Successful billionaire killers who also just happen to be political, Wall Street insiders… the very people he campaigned against.

The ultimate insider, Wall Street, is bathing in the profits with all four stock indexes reaching all times highs thanks to his “CHANGE” administration. Laughing all the way to the bank so too speak while Trump’s fans mindless worship at the same alter of Mammon that’s been screwing them over for decades.

Diminished Expectations

Nope. There will be no prosecution for Hillary Clinton as a couple die-hards in the crowd tried to get the “Lock Her Up!” chant rolling yesterday. His influence peddlers planted out there among them shouted that effort down as quickly as they could.

Diminished Expectations

Trump was gloating about his “success” with the Carrier deal as much as he was trying to roll back expectations of it. Some said he “saved” 1,100 jobs with that deal. Then they said it was “1,000” and now it’s been downgraded to “800”

The state of Indiana is going to have to pony up 7 million dollars to keep those “800” jobs which will hurt the economy of the state tremendously. Of course that just helps them get that “smaller gubmint” they crave so much.

Carrier is owned my major defense contractor United Technologies and if you think they are actually going to keep those jobs in America I can sell a bridge someplace. Six months from now, a year from now, when no one is looking or caring, they will close that plant and keep a business office open in it’s place so Carrier can continue to enjoy the 7 big ones in tax breaks, but the people working there will be left out in the cold and the Mighty Trump will do nothing about it.

Another 1,300 jobs are still going down south of the borders and Trump is still paying Carrier to send them down there. And the precedent is set. All companies will have to do is threaten to send some jobs down under and they’ll get MASSIVE tax breaks… even for jobs they never intended to relocate. Trump gets too say he saved some more jobs, the company owners get the big bucks and the local tax-payers have to shell out even more to make up the difference.

What was it called when governments work exclusively for Big Business at the direct expense of the people? I forget but there is a name for it… hmmmm.

Diminished Expectations

The Diminished Expectations Tour™ is about as ridiculous and obvious of a cheap marketing trick as you could expect and yet, miraculously, the press is presenting it as some kind of legitimate payback to his fans. Even the fake-left press.

It’s brilliant political marketing to a desperately dumbed-down and desperate constituency. And like it or not, it’s the wave of the future baby.

But what do you expect from a guy who honed his public speaking chops with the WWE? This to him is the audience out here, how he perceives the whole of the American audience. As a bunch of professional wrestling fans just waiting too see him shave Vince McMahon’s head in the middle of ring. The benevolent billionaire helping them get some payback on “the man” right?

Diminished Expectations Tour™ of 2016

If this Diminished Expectations Tour™ of 2016 is any indication I can’t wait for The Donald’s first State of the Union address. As ridiculous as it promises to be, it’s not without precedent. There is President Camocho’s if you recall….

Don’t laugh. Don’t fucking laugh. Not in public anyway. And for God’s sake, when the shit really hits the fan, don’t burn a flag… because this is America… and this is where were are right now.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

Of Billionaires, Globalists and Generals: President Trump’s “Miracle of Chile” Cabinet Takes Shape

Wed, 11/30/2016 - 09:43

by Scott Creighton

On June the second, 2009, a few months after President Barack Obama took office, I published my article Barack Obama is Not “the greatest man of our generation” : The Miracle of Chile comes to America. In that very personal essay I explained to a former college professor of mine (a man I have always had great respect for) that Barack Obama was not “the greatest man of our generation” and in fact he would end up being one of the most disastrous fake-left presidents we have ever had.

The article focused on how, rather than moving the country decidedly to the left as he promised in his “CHANGE” campaign, Obama was going to continue pursuing the reactionary neoliberalization of this country just as George W. Bush did and just as Bill Clinton did before him.

The model of that transition I supposed would be based on the neoliberal transformation of Chile in 1973 when we crafted a bloody coup in that country and installed a dictator who would take orders from the Chicago Boys (Milton Friedman technocrats from the University of Chicago School of Economics) and dump the “economic brick” on the people in order to kick-off what would come to be known as the “Miracle of Chile”

Mass privatizations, open borders for “flexible workforces”, open fiscal borders for hot-money speculators from Wall Street and London, unprecedented deregulation of Big Business, open markets allowing for foreign looting of local economies, destabilizing tax-breaks for billionaires and Big Business, crippling austerity measures, attacks on unions to drive down the wage structure and drive up the profit margins for Big Business… that’s the “brick”. Neoliberalism. Reagan’s “trickle down” economic ideology which has also been called “The Washington Consensus” and just happens to be the same economic “small government” ideology of the fake-left in this country, the Clinton led New Dems, Democratic Leadership Council, the Blue Dog Dems and now… the unDemocratic Party of the Right of Reagan “Centrists” who just lost a painfully embarrassing election to a guy who once shaved Vince McMahon’s head at WrestleMania and was on record as saying he could grab any woman’s privates that he wanted because he was rich.

This is the economic policy that we would install in every country we destabilized and then regime changed. It’s the same economic policy the IMF and World Bank force on countries when they foolishly take out loans from these globalist institutions. In order to protect the order of the newly installed neoliberal economic structure, usually we also install a military dictator, or a dictator who likes to pretend he was in the military, so they can crack down on the “terrorists” who oppose their New World Order and strike fear and adulation in the rest of the mindless rabble.

Neoliberalism is the bread and butter of globalization and it is the economic policy of choice of fascism because it elevates the corporate state above all else and makes government, or what’s left of it, subservient to the wishes of the one-tenth of one percent who sit in the mahogany board rooms issuing decrees from on high. It is what is at the core of what Sanders supporters and Trump supporters rejected this year en masse and yet, here we go again with another “CHANGE” administration setting up the exact opposite of what it’s supporters really wanted.

Donald Trump will announce today several new cabinet picks who, as I will show you, are reactionary neoliberal zealots, exactly the kind of technocrats he would need to further the transformation of this country into a 3rd world tin-pot economic laboratory, the likes of which we have seen fail over and over again across the globe. Many are billionaires, some are tainted generals and all are dyed in the wool globalists who will serve the “greater good” of turning this nation into Ayn Rand’s reactionary wet dream.

They don’t call it the Washington Consensus for nothing.

Trump is getting some praise today as Carrier and he met yesterday to hash out a plan for them to keep two factories here in the states rather than send them down to Mexico as they planned. Trump promised his fans that he would stop that on “day one” and claimed his business acumen would provide him the upper hand in that negotiation.

Carrier has now said they will do something to save “1,000” jobs thanks to the meeting with the president elect. 2,100 employees were told their jobs were going south of the border a couple months ago so clearly Carrier is still sending something down south and there is no telling what sweet deals Trump gave them for the conciliatory gesture.

In reality, Carrier will probably announce a couple months after Trump gets in office that 100 or so jobs were “saved” as they enjoy the tax breaks from Trump and ship the rest of the jobs to Mexico.

In congress they are about to pass something called the 21st Century Cures Act which supposedly will help curb the epidemic of drug abuse and overdoses in the country. But it wont. Instead, it will reward the manufacturers of the most lethal of the narcotics which are being over-prescribed and abused by curbing any oversight or regulations on them and then pump tons of cash into Big Pharma’s research divisions so they can make new, unregulated drugs which they can then sell for huge profits to Americans… all at great cost to the American tax-payer.

Neoliberalism at it’s finest. Fascism in other words.

Here are a couple of Trump’s latest cabinet appointments which will help him push his “populist” agenda while in office.

Elaine Chao – Secretary of Transportation

Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, a man who has taken millions of dollars in “campaign contributions” from the folks who pushed this bill, is playing a key role in the passage of this piece of neoliberal corporate welfare in the senate while his wife, Elaine Chao, has been nominated to serve in Donald Trump’s cabinet as Secretary of Transportation.

Chao attended Harvard, served under George W. Bush as Labor Secretary for 8 years and was “vice president for syndications at Bank of America Capital Markets Group in San Francisco, and an international banker at Citicorp in New York for four years”

Chao is also a fellow at the neoliberal Heritage Foundation and has served on various boards for Big Business since leaving office.

In 2009 Chao resumed her previous role as a Distinguished Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, and she contributes to Fox News and other media outlets.

She also serves as a director on a number of corporate and non-profit boards,[13][37] including the Institute of Politics at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Wells Fargo,[38] NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital, News Corp,[39] Dole Food Company,[40] and Protective Life Corporation.[41][42][43] In June 2011, she was awarded the Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service.[44]

Transportation is an important position. The roadways will almost certainly be further privatized as will all those “shovel ready” infrastructure jobs Trump claims will be created by his 1 trillion dollar tax-break for Big Business scheme he used to call a “jobs bill”

Steven Mnuchin-  Secretary of Treasury

Steven Mnuchin is a billionaire globalist who has previous investment ties to Donald Trump. He was a partner at Goldman Sachs, worked for the Soros Management Fund and helped crash the economy back in 2008 and then profited from that effort later to the tune of billions of dollars.

In 2004, he also founded a hedge fund, Dune Capital Management, named for a spot near his house in the Hamptons. The firm invested in at least two Donald Trump projects and, in one of them, was sued by Trump before a settlement was reached. Then, in partnership with Soros, hedge fund manager John Paulson and others, Mnuchin bought the failed housing lender IndyMac in 2009 for $1.6 billion.[7] The bank, purchased out of bankruptcy from the FDIC, was renamed OneWest, with Mnuchin as chair. According to The New York Times, OneWest “was involved in a string of lawsuits over questionable foreclosures, and settled several cases for millions of dollars.” OneWest was sold to CIT Group in 2015.[5]

Talk about the continuation of service to the masters of the universe over at Goldman Sachs…

He would be “the third Goldman alumnus to serve in the job, after Henry M. Paulson Jr., under President George W. Bush; and Robert E. Rubin, under President Bill Clinton” in the 2000s and 1990s respectively

Wilbur Ross – Secretary of Commerce

Another billionaire Wilbur Ross is expected to be announced as Trump’s Secretary of Commerce. Ross headed up Rothschild & Co.’s bankruptcy advisory business where he served as the head vulture capitalist buying up businesses and strip-mining them for whatever he could get. His shoddy mine in West Virginia, one that was deregulated by Elaine Chao, collapsed while he was milking money for that hole in the ground and several miners, the ones Trump promised to help during his election, died horrible deaths. He got off scot-free of course.

Ross served under U.S. President Bill Clinton on the board of the U.S.-Russia Investment Fund, and later, under New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as the Mayor’s privatization advisor.[16] In January 1998 he put $2.25 million in seed money into McCaughey Ross’s campaign.[citation needed] Although he was an early supporter of Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign, Ross in earlier years was a registered Democrat, served as an officer of the New York State Democratic Party and held fundraisers for Democratic candidates at his apartment in New York City.

Here is a list of his previously announced choices:

  • Chief of Staff: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus – reactionary neoliberal
  • Chief White House Strategist: Trump Campaign CEO Steve Bannon – “libertarian” neoliberal
  • Attorney General: Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions – expansionist neoliberal who opposed McCain bill banning torture
  • Housing and Urban Development Secretary: Dr. Ben Carson – crazy neoliberal wants to privatize Medicare
  • Health and Human Services Secretary: Georgia Congressman Tom Price – Chamber of Commerce neoliberal who wants to privatize Medicare
  • Education Secretary: Betsy DeVos – Amway pyramid scheme billionaire neoliberal wants to privatize Dept. of Education

Trump has a thing for generals as well as for neoliberal billionaires. Here are some of his favorites who have either been offered jobs or are expected to be offered jobs.

  • Michael Flynn – ran Defense Intelligence Agency
  • Jack Keane
  • James “maddog” Mattis – “be prepared to kill everyone”
  • David Petraeus-  of the “surge” Salvador Option death squads in Iraq
  • John Kelly

Every one of these men are hawkish in their support for the endless Global War OF Terrorism and each and every one of them is known for being “intelligent” when it comes to understanding the role the military plays in pursuit of that New World Order that is so fashionable in certain circles inhabited by billionaires and their lapdogs these days. One of them will undoubtedly be Secretary of Defense. One might just be Secretary of State if Trump doesn’t knuckle under to pressure from the masters of the universe and install billionaire globalist Mitt Romney in that position. Mitt after all did his part losing to Barack Obama back in 2012. Bills must be paid don’t you know.

There you have it. Billionaires, globalists and generals. Trump’s “populist” cabinet as it stands right now. Not a nationalist or a protectionist in the whole batch. It’s what globalists like to call “stability”… the illusion of choice in our ‘democracy” and the continuation of the neoliberal rule of the masters of the universe in reality. This is what you got from Clinton. This is what you got from Bush. This is what you got from Obama. And if all those Goldman Sachs Secretary of Treasury choices are any indication, this is what you get from Trump.

I’m sorry but is just the reality we face.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

Ajamu Baraka, Jill Stein’s Former Running Mate, Opposes Her Recount Effort

Wed, 11/30/2016 - 07:10

by Scott Creighton

Some folks out there are still having a hard time admitting Jill Stein’s recount effort was done for nefarious purposes and has done far more harm to the election integrity movement than good. Far more harm. I am speaking specifically of Debbie at the “Sane” Progressive who posted a Youtube video yesterday literally screeching and waving her hands around like a maniac over how she is tired of doing all she can to “educate” her viewers while they dare to disagree with her (sometimes viciously) about this Stein recount debacle. I posted a comment on that video, the first one actually, letting her know it wasn’t a good idea to assume she is “educating” her viewers and suggesting she might want to take a deep breath and consider the fact that she might have been wrong about this one especially the Green Party leaders posted an open letter denouncing the Stein recount effort as being “undemocratic” and counterproductive to their efforts and since it appears to many that Stein is doing it to benefit one of the corporate parties of America, the Democrats. I then provided a link to that letter in another comment just afterwards when I was asked to by another commenter.

After several others posted similar comments she has now set that rant video to private. It’s a shame. I thought it was funny.

Following up on the Green Party’s letter trying to distance themselves from Jill Stein’s “the Russians did it” recount measure, her former Vice Presidential running mate, Ajamu Baraka, has done the same.

I’m not in favor of the recount.” “it was a potentially dangerous move” “It would be seen as carrying the water for the Democrats,” Baraka on CNN

“… There are many in and outside of the Green Party who support the campaign’s decision to call for a recount. But there are also many Green Party activists and supporters who are opposed to that decision. It is unfortunate that after waging a courageous campaign to build an independent, principled political opposition to the two racist, capitalist/imperialist parties, the recount effort has resulted in serious questions regarding the motivations of the recount that threatens to damage the standing and reputation of the Green party, its supporters, and activists.” Baraka on Facebook

As I wrote yesterday, Margaret Flowers, Chris Hedges, Cynthia McKinney, both co-chairs of Green Party U.S. and hundreds of other Green Party members have denounced this half-assed effort by Jill Stein. Now you can add her running mate to the list.

As far as the recount effort itself, the Wisconsin court has rejected Stein’s suit to force all counties in that state to do a mandatory hand-count of the ballots meaning each one will be able to decide for themselves if they want to actually do a real recount or just regurgitate the numbers from the hackable electronic voting machines. That means if the election commissions in those counties who rigged the vote for Hillary don’t want their efforts exposed, they will simply reject the manual recount letting their hacked results stand.

So much for full disclosure.


Obama extends global reach of US Special Operations death squads

Tue, 11/29/2016 - 15:12

I made this years ago. Prescient?

(As coincidence would have it, the day after ObamaGod authorizes global death squad rights for President Tiny Hands to enjoy, some general JUST HAPPENS to “find” a Big Book of “ISIS” plots and plans in Syria. Like an assassination target catalogue of some kind. What a damned coincidence, huh? Kill anybody, anywhere at any time in the name of our “national interests” and all you have to do is pull up the catalogue and say “See? It’s right there. Page 81b” and you’re fine.)

from the WSWS

In major actions reported only briefly by the establishment press, President Obama has given vast new scope to the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), authorizing it to carry out assassinations across the globe.

The units of JSOC have long been employed by the chiefs of the six major regional military commands, such as Centcom, which covers the Middle East and Central Asia, to conduct counter-terrorism operations. One such unit, Seal Team Six, carried out the assassination of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May 2011.

Obama has approved a proposal to give JSOC independent authority to operate outside the regional commands, essentially as a globalized assassination force. JSOC units will bypass the regional commanders and report directly to Special Operations Command (SOCOM) in the Pentagon.

According to the Washington Post, “The missions could occur well beyond the battlefields of places like Iraq, Syria and Libya, where Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has carried out clandestine operations in the past. When finalized, it will elevate JSOC from being a highly-valued strike tool used by regional military commands to leading a new multi-agency intelligence and action force.”

The mandate of the new formation, to be called the “Counter-External Operations Task Force,” or Ex-Ops in Pentagon jargon, will embrace the entire planet. This means US military death squads could be sent to virtually any location, from European cities to South American jungles, including the United States itself.

According to the Post, a reorganization making counter-terrorism an independent, global command has been discussed in the Pentagon for 15 years, since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but it was always rejected…

Green Party U.S. Publishes Letter Denouncing Jill Stein’s Recount Effort

Tue, 11/29/2016 - 14:38

by Scott Creighton

On the 28th, on the (Margaret) Flowers for Senate website, the Green Party U.S. has published a statement about the Jill Stein recount effort taking place right now. The letter, signed by both co-chairs of Green Party U.S. and other prominent Green Party Members (Chris Hedges, Cynthia McKinney, Kevin Zeese, Margaret Flowers and others) as well as hundreds of rank and file Green Party members, clearly states the Green Party does not support her efforts while they do support legitimate actions to defend voters rights and to fight against election rigging, voter disenfranchisement and voter suppression.

They lay out several reasons for their not supporting this effort which include the undemocratic way Stein went about undertaking this project, the fact that it doesn’t address real election rigging techniques they have seen used (all it focuses on is the “Russians did it” BS) and the appearance of it being done to benefit Hillary Clinton.

The letter and some signatures are republished below the fold. You can go to the original here.

We write to reaffirm our commitment to building a Green Party that has a radical analysis of the society in which we live, and promotes bold solutions to transform our society and address the root causes of those crises; a Green Party that is independent of the two money-dominated parties.

There is a deep social crisis in the US. This crisis manifests in countless ways. One of its central manifestations is through the political system. People have legitimate concerns about the electoral system, which is manipulated through wholesale voter disenfranchisement, massive voter suppression and the racist and undemocratic historical logic of the Electoral College. In all fifty states, voters from poor and marginalized communities, especially Black people and other communities of color, have their votes suppressed and are excluded from participation through various practices.

The Green Party cannot build the political power necessary for the transformative changes we need by allying with two capitalist parties that serve the interests of the wealthy. That is why it is imperative that the Green Party is independent of those parties. We stay independent to give people an alternative to the corruption of two money-based parties. Greens reject donations from corporations and their political action committees to ensure we are accountable to the people and so that the people’s agenda is not superseded by the corporate agenda.

There are significant electoral reforms needed to make elections more democratic and more representative of the people. While we support electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein.

The decision to pursue a recount was not made in a democratic or a strategic way, nor did it respect the established decision making processes and structures of the Green Party of the United States (GPUS).  The recount has created confusion about the relationship between the Green and Democratic parties because the states chosen for the recount are only states in which Hillary Clinton lost. There were close races in other states such as New Hampshire and Minnesota where Clinton won, but which were not part of the recount. And this recount does not address the disenfranchisement of voters; it recounts votes that were already counted rather than restoring the suffrage of voters who were prevented from voting.

As a candidate, Dr. Stein has the right to call for a recount. However, we urge the GPUS to distance itself from any appearance of support for either Democrats or Republicans. We are well aware of the undemocratic actions taken during the primaries by the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Greens cannot be perceived to be allied with such a party.

We remain committed to the Green Party’s four pillars and ten key values, which have at their foundation grassroots democracy. We urge the GPUS to prioritize its efforts on building our party from the bottom up, working and organizing in direct solidarity with our state and local parties and alongside and in defense of the rights of those most affected by the injustices of a capitalist, white supremacist and undemocratic system. This includes support for local efforts to prevent the disenfranchisement of people of color via voter suppression or because of felony convictions and to be more inclusive and participatory in our decision-making processes and work.

UPDATES on Jill Stein’s Flailing Recount Efforts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan

Tue, 11/29/2016 - 09:18

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: see update at end of article

Here are a few updates on the process:

Jill Stein went on CNN last night and spoke with CIA Mockingbird Anderson Cooper about this process. He asked her specifically why she was doing this when no one, not even J. Alex Halderman (who’s essay made up the entirety of Jill’s Wisconsin petition) said they had seen any evidence of election rigging in any of these three states. Jill said again it was all about “reassuring the voters”. She was then asked “why these three states that would flip the election results” and Stein answered saying something about there having been “irregularities” noted about them and quickly changed the subject back to “reinforcing voter confidence in the election process”. Interestingly, Cooper asked her about the money being collected and how it would be used specifically and she said that neither the Green Party or herself were in control of the money and it would be used for these effort, which begs the question that Anderson failed too ask “If you and the Green Party aren’t in control of how this money is used, who is?”. Jill Stein never offered that information.

Jill Stein has hired the former head of the Michigan Democratic Party, Mark Brewer, to head up her legal team. Brewer is still a member of the national DNC. His wife, Julianna Smoot, “is a former White House social secretary who most recently served as deputy manager for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign

– Jill Stein has hired another long time Democrat Party insider, Lawrence Otter to help with her recount efforts in Pennsylvania. As it just so happens, I found this picture of Lawrence Otter’s daughter hanging out with… Hillary Clinton… on his Facebook page.

Jill Stein’s team is going to have a tough time forcing a recount in Pennsylvania. In that state you have to provide evidence of malfeasance in order to garner a recount even if you pay the fee. She said on Sunday they were going to have to “jump through some hoops” in order to get it done.

You also have to get 3 registered voters who voted to petition each county in the state in order to get a recount. That would take hundreds of voters. So far they have a hundred or so.

In what appears to be an effort to tamp down expectations from the folks who kicked in nearly 7 million dollars for this effort, Jill Stein in a video posted on Sunday, saying the process in Pennsylvania is more difficult than it is in Wisconsin.

Making if more difficult, Pennsylvania uses electronic voting machines with no paper trail. How they are going to effectively recount that is beyond me.

Stein’s recount project is also facing issues in Wisconsin which they have already assured the concerned public was a done deal once they filed their “the Russians did it” petition this past Friday. Turns out what they want, a comprehensive count of all paper ballots, isn’t what Wisconsin wants to give them and so Stein and company are having to go to court there as well.

It (Wisconsin state Elections Commission) rejected the Stein campaign’s request for a statewide hand recount, instead leaving it to each county to decide whether to use a machine or not. The Stein campaign said it was filing a legal challenge to trigger an all-hand recount.”

In Wisconsin, the Stein team is going to have to plop down 3.5 million dollars to pay for the hand recount by this evening at 8pm. They have filed a lawsuit to force all counties to do a manual count of the ballots. But with no evidence of actual election rigging, chances are slim they will succeed in a court of law with nothing more than New York Times articles about “da ebil Ruskies” as evidence.

Wisconsin Elections Commission chairman Mark Thomsen says he doesn’t think there is any justification for a recount and wants counties to be able to decide for themselves if they should manually count the ballots. Mark Thomsen is a Democrat.

– All three states must finish their recounts by Dec. 13th because the EC voters meet on the 19th to cast their votes. Deadline looming, establishment Dems set by Stein to run the various recount efforts in the various states. Already Stein is walking back expectations.

Seems to me like this effort of hers is in shambles. I don’t know what they intend to “count” in Pennsylvania. The printed receipts from the electronic voting machines? How useful would that be?

UPDATE: Let me just add this comment here I left for a reader a minute ago. I do this in order to ease people’s concerns:

“It wont end in a reversal. There’s no way. With Pennsylvania a totally paper-free election state, there is nothing to recount and without Penn’s EC votes, Hillary cant win even if Mich and Wis are flipped. That’s just “rythmatick” as they say down here in the sticks where I live. So don’t worry. No guns from Trump fans needed.


Bana of Aleppo: the Story So Far

Mon, 11/28/2016 - 09:37

(I would add the Malala story, Bring Back Our Girls and “incubator babies” to her list of manufactured little girl heroes stories)

by Barbara McKenzie (H/T Moon of Alabama blog)

First there was the Gay Girl of Damascus, back in 2011, and now we have @AlabedBana tweeting from Aleppo.

The Bana story all began in September of 2016 when 7 year old Bana began to tweet from eastern Aleppo to share with the world her anxiety about living in a war-torn city. It is perhaps a sad reflection of the world we live in that her arrival on the social media scene provoked a certain amount of scepticism, hilarity even. It seems only fair to endeavour to consider the Bana case objectively.

Bana, as we are told, lives with her parents and two brothers in Aleppo. Her mother Fatemah is a teacher who ‘manages Bana’s twitter account’ and occasionally tweets herself, and her father Ghassan works in the ‘legal department of the local council’, whatever that means – the area is totally controlled by al Nusra who have set up their own council:

Bana’s sole purpose in tweeting is to tell us about the bombing of Aleppo by Putin and Assad, and to ask us to do something about it (Bana herself has lost one or two friends to the bombing, though we never learn their names).

Is Jill Stein’s Recount Effort Simply TPTB Threatening the President Elect to “Appoint Our Guys or Else”?

Mon, 11/28/2016 - 09:17

by Scott Creighton

What is the real purpose behind Jill Stein’s “blame the Russians” recount efforts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan?

That’s the big question isn’t it?

Over at Debbie’s Sane Progressive Youtube page, she is getting HAMMERED for continuing to suggest that it’s all about “freedom and democracy and election integrity” and crap like that at a point where it is PAINFULLY obvious that it has NOTHING to do with any of that. All she has to do is read Jill’s damn petition to Wisconsin and she will know IN A HEART BEAT that it’s totally focused on the Clinton campaign’s earlier assertions that the Russians could hack our election system to make Donald Trump win.

And interestingly enough, as she pouts and tells folks they can go ahead and unsubscribe to her channel (as they are doing) she has YET to post a link in ANY of her videos linking her readers to Jill Stein’s petition so they can read it for themselves. That’s a little dubious, don’t you think?

Here is Stein’s Wisconsin petition. Judge for yourself what it’s about.

My opinion on the subject is well documented and based on a substantial amount of research. Plus, unlike Debbie, I come at this issue without the baggage of having been a Jill Stein supporter so identity politics doesn’t factor in with me.

Lastly on this part of the subject I just want too say Debbie’s latest video regarding Stein’s Clinton-inspired efforts include a long-time election integrity activist named Lianda Ludwig who, though her heart is clearly in the right place, has been taken advantage of, in my opinion. This is a comment I wrote on Debbie’s Youtube video of her interview with Lianda:

AmericanEveryman13 hours ago

Lianda’s fundraiser page as well as Jill Stein’s both contain language from Democracy Engine. Line 618 “I agree to Democracy Engine… line 619 “Terms of Service”… line 621 “Privacy Policy” – is operated by Jonathan Zucker who was was the executive director for George Soros’ ActBlue and he’s done work for the DLC. It’s CTO is Erik Pennebaker “During the 2008 election cycle, the system he created for then-Senator Clinton was the online heart of her more than $221 million fundraising effort” I wonder why these two decided to use that particular group to raise money for their projects.

What is that she said? If the money does come from Soros, so what? Yeah. Got it.

Nationbuilder is a “Megaphone”-type platform where, for a monthly fee, folks with a cause can sign-up, collect donations and have their cause spread to all sorts of paid influence peddlers across the country. It was created by a guy who attended college where I grew up in Lynchburg Va. He attended Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University and was a fundamentalist Christian who loved George W. Bush and all things neoliberal until the Iraq War and a Robert Greenwald movie “changed his mind” and he became an “anti-war activist”. Or so the story goes.

This guy then has an idea for Nationbuilder and somehow gets Sean Parker to give him 35 million dollars in start-up money for the project. Sean Parker was the first president of Facebook and the CIA financial asset that gave Zuckerburg the money to kick it off.

This is what happens when people who don’t really understand deep state politics like Debbie of the Sane Progressive and Lianda Ludwig try to pretend like they do. They can’t see past the emotional connections they’ve made with their pet issues, in this case, a rather important pet issue: election integrity (something I have covered for years). They also tend to get trapped by identity politics and refuse too see the writing on the wall until it’s too late. Consider:

  1. Does anyone really think Jill Stein of all people could have motivated so many people to donate 6 million bucks in two days all on her own without Facebook’s Megaphone engine? Be serious. She only raise 3.5 million throughout her entire presidential campaign.. and I don’t care HOW you recount those votes, she’s not going to be president in the end, so WHY would her voters send her their money for this effort?
  2. Why did Jill take up this cause after the two main movers in the action met with Podesta and Elias of the Hillary Clinton team and then why did her petition focus on “Russian hacking” rather than privately owned electronic voting machines and secret software used to count the votes?
  3. Why is Elias and the Clinton campaign now saying they are getting on board with the action to “help” the process along?

Think about it.

So where did she get all that money so quickly? And more importantly, why was she allowed to do it and even have her initiative advertised on the corporate media? Why does it focus on Russia?

Good questions all and I think the answer is a lot more obvious than you might think.

As I have written so many times in the past, nothing happens by coincidence. So for a little clearer insight, maybe we should take a look at what is happening AROUND this story and perhaps that can give us some insight.

Now that Trump is president elect, a couple things are happening that are of note in terms of the personal agendas of the globalist masters of the universe.

  1. We are preparing our terrorists in Syria for an exit since Trump says he wont support them
  2. We are anticipating a reset on NAFTA and Trump’s re-writing of the TPP and the TTIP, something corporate lawyers have been working on for years
  3. We are being promised a Russian Reset which potentially means the end of the New Cold War and all that spending that goes with it

Trump is a pure neoliberal. He was allowed to win. No one should expect anything from him other than the privatization of the public education system, deregulating Wall Street, corporate tax decrease at a legendary level and giveaways to Big Business under the guise of helping put us back to work like his infrastructure plan (notice he doesn’t call it a jobs bill because it isn’t)

But Trump is also a man who takes the temperature of a room and acts accordingly and in that mold, he took the temperature of the country and decided he himself was an anti-interventionist, an anti-globalist and a man concerned with the potential of brinksmanship taking us to WWIII (or IV depending how you view history)

Right now there is a HUUUUGE (sorry bout that) conflict taking place in the public sphere regarding Trump’s picks for key cabinet positions. The globalists want Trump to put their guys in place like Romney. Trump’s supporters want him to stick to his promise to drain the swamp and keep the globalists out of key positions, especially those like Romney who bashed Trump and his supporters for half a year before the election.

You have to always remember, not just say it when it’s convenient too say it, that we live in a one party system, the globalist Business Party, run by the US Chamber of Commerse, ALEC and the Council on Foreign Relations. If you don’t believe me, take a look at how many fake progressive websites are out there parroting the neoliberal propaganda about the life and times of Fidel Castro today.

What if TPTB are sending Trump a message right now at a key moment in his early presidency? What if they want him to do what Reagan was forced to do back in late 1980 when they made him pick all of the neocon “crazies” they wanted in the White House to go along with Rockefeller’s George H. W. Bush?

What if they know they can’t off him right now without setting the country on fire and everyone looking at them as the likely suspects regardless of how many times Joe Scarborough comes out in support of the new Magic Bullet Theory?

How would they threaten him?

One way might be to tell him they will implicate Russia in an election hack that strips him of the office, installs a complicit puppet who will do what they want and simultaneously kicks off the new Cold War at the same time.

They want globalist war-hawks in the Defense Department, the CIA and State Department who will continue the banker’s Global War OF Terrorism anywhere and everywhere they see fit. They want globalist technocrats in Commerce who will understand what the TPP and the TTIP are about and leave them alone. And they want a president who understands his place.

Let me write that again… they want a president who understands his place.

Do what we say, appoint people who think like us or you’re gone. Because even the president isn’t bigger than these powers.

That explains how Jill Stein was allowed to raise that amount of money so quickly. That explains the Russia-baiting nature of her petition. That explains the Clinton people moving in to take over as if they weren’t behind the whole thing to start with.

That also explains why it will take so long for the recount process… they want to keep this sword positioned over his head until he finishes picking his cabinet.

For those of you out there like Debbie who are having a hard time seeing Stein’s actions for what they are I would like to remind you of little Dennis Kucinich who said on a weekend that ObamaCare was worse than doing nothing as he opposed the fascist “fix”. Then he took a ride on Air Force One and a day later, he came out in support of it and helped motivate other reluctant dems to do the same.

He sold out. And I myself was disgusted with him for doing it.

But I don’t know what was exposed to little wig-wearing Dennis on that ride. Whatever it was, now he works for Fox News and his wife gets contracts from the UN.

You can’t hold it against them when they sell out. You don’t know what they were told. What they were shown. I have often joked the day after the election The Donald was brought into a mock up of the Oval Office somewhere in a desert and the lights were turned down real low and Osama bin Laden and G. Gordon Liddy walk in carrying a glass bottle with a brain floating around in some liquid and they put it on the table saying “Here’s Jack. Some folks who make news from behind the scenes thought you should meet him”

Or maybe they just showed him some photos of his beloved family members sleeping in their beds in their “safe” mansions.

Or maybe they just showed him how they could flash crash his empire in ten minutes making him and his family bankrupt.

And God knows what they could have shown Stein. They can do all of that and worse actually. Take it from me…

So I don’t blame Stein for this. I just call em like I see em. And it seems to me that someone is using her to send the president elect a message and it seems like a pretty clear one.

Either you work for us now… or you don’t. Take your pick.

I wouldn’t expect Trump to be replaced as a result of this action. I expect him to be tamed.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

Jill Stein’s “The Russians Did It” Recount Petition is Based Entirely on Flawed and Discredited MSM Propaganda Reports

Sun, 11/27/2016 - 10:58

by Scott Creighton

Jill Stein’s petition to recount the votes in Wisconsin never once mentions any statistical evidence of flawed election results. She never once suggests she and the Green Party should have received more votes than they did. And she never once suggests it is in bad taste to allow privately owned companies to write and use code for their electronic voting machines and that code is protected under proprietary software rules from any sort of disclosure or evaluation both prior to and after elections.

There is no mention of exit polls, there is no mention of pre-election polling results not matching official voting tallies in Wisconsin. There is no statistical evidence presented at all.

Instead, Jill Stein parrots old propaganda from the MSM which backed Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid by claiming their reports are evidence of Russia’s hacking the Wisconsin election results. It is important to note Jill Stein regularly dismissed these kinds of reports from the Clinton-backing press during the campaign season.

In a stunning turnaround, by way of “proof” Jill Stein cites the work of one individual expert, J. Alex Halderman, and his work on the subject as the grounds for her desire for a recount of the election results. It is stunning because his “proof” is nothing more than five pieces of MSM propaganda and  one report from the Department of Homeland Security that says they are “confident” Russia was behind the DNC, Clinton server and John Podesta email leaks and the alleged voter data-base hacks in a couple states (not Wisconsin)

Aside from the fact that this “evidence” is merely a small number of articles written by biased reporters, none of that has anything to do with proving election fraud or hacking in the Wisconsin presidential election. None of it. Not one single shred of evidence is provided.

And yet, Wisconsin upheld the recount petition.

From her petition to recount the votes in Wisconsin Jill Stein writes in part:

“3. The Petitioner is informed and believes that: a. In August 2016, it was widely reported that foreign operators breached voter registration databases…. c. … “The US intelligence community is confident… these thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process“… f. The well-documented and conclusive evidence of foreign interference in the presidential race before the election… call into question the results and indicate the possibility that widespread breach occurred.”

Section 3 lays out Jill Stein’s reasons for her belief the election was stolen… by Russians. In section 4 she makes perfectly clear the reasons she holds this belief:

“Attached as Exhibit 1, and incorporated fully herein, is the affidavit of J. Alex Halderman… that details the basis for of my belief for the statements set forth in paragraph 3 above.”

In Exhibit 1, Halderman goes on to explain his findings, which again, include no statistical evidence whatsoever. Instead, he makes these statements and supplies his supporting evidence, such as it is.

“6. … The Department of Homeland Security has stated that senior officials in the Russian government commissioned these attacks. 7. Russia has sophisticated cyber-offensive capabilities… 10. Whether voting machines are connected to the Internet is irrelevant… That initial computer is almost certainly not well enough secured to guard against attacks by foreign governments.”

Then Halderman goes on to include published articles in their entirety as “evidence” of his claims:

Since when did a biased reporter’s article on anything become grounds for legal action? This is ridiculous. In the last one from the Christian Science Monitor, they take the neo-Nazi puppet ruler of Ukraine as his word when he says (without offering any proof) the Russians tried to hack his “election” but they foiled it at the last minute. This is a man who has accused Russia of everything from downing Flight Mh17 to “invading Crimea” and his politically motivated smear ends up in Jill Stein’s legal petition?


This “the Russians did it” narrative was established by the Clinton team months before the election. They did it for two reasons:

  1. To discredit leaks that revealed criminal activity by Hillary Clinton, the DNC and John Podesta
  2. To serve as a pretext to discredit the results in the event Hillary Clinton lost the election

And here we are.

The Clinton team has signed up to “help” the Stein folks in this evaluation of election results. They did it to ensure the accuracy of the findings. For “democracy” don’t you know.

This entire “Russians did it” narrative has been ridiculed for months by more responsible journalists… not one of which was cited by J. Alex Halderman or Jill Stein in this official Wisconsin document. Here is but a small sample of the rational journalism that’s out there to contradict the “Russians did it” narrative custom crafted by the Clinton machine:

It should also be noted that timing is very telling when certain propaganda programs are being rolled out. In the world of deep state politics, there is no such thing as a coincidence:

The Washington Post on Thursday night promoted the claims of a new, shadowy organization that smears dozens of U.S. news sites that are critical of U.S. foreign policy as being “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.” The article by reporter Craig Timberg – headlined “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say” – cites a report by a new, anonymous website calling itself “PropOrNot,” which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian “misinformation campaign.” The Intercept

On Nov. 9th, the day after the election, a shadowy group of anonymous “concerned Americans” published what they consider to be a list of alternative/independent journalism websites who are in cahoots (knowingly or not) with Russia. Like the Jill Stein petition, they offer no proof, just a Joseph McCarty-styled list of commie sympathizer websites they say you should avoid.

On Thursday, Nov. 24th, the Washington Post promoted this ridiculous red-baiting website and their list as legitimate… that was one day before Jill Stein’s red-baiting petition was to be delivered in Wisconsin.

This is a carefully constructed, staged and scripted propaganda campaign that unfortunately, Jill Stein of the Green Party is fully engaged in. Green Party supporters should be outraged, not trying to spin up some justification for Jill Stein’s apparent foray into Clinton’s New McCarthyism campaign.

There is no evidence offered in the Big List of commie journalists just like there is no evidence offered by Jill Stein in her Clinton-scripted call for a Wisconsin recount. Both should be rejected by sensible Americans.

Jill Stein Parrots the Dem’s Discredited “The Russians Did It” Narrative in Her Official Petition to Recount Wisconsin Votes

Sat, 11/26/2016 - 14:22

by Scott Creighton

Sounds to me like John Podesta wrote her petition to Wisconsin and it is clearly designed to help Hillary Clinton. Jill, the Russians didn’t “hack” anything to steal votes from you, now did they? So logically, since “the Russians” are the PRIMARY FOCUS of your petition, that means… you filed the petition on behalf of Hillary Clinton. Didn’t you?

Jill Stein’s petition to recount Wisconsin votes has been published online (PDF). Does she cite issues with electronic voting machines being proven to be susceptible to rigging by the companies that own them? No. Does she have any evidence at all to show the official count in Wisconsin was rigged for Trump to win? No.

Her entire argument to recount the votes in Wisconsin comes down to two things which she summarizes in section F of her petition;

f. The well-documented and conclusive evidence of foreign interference in the presidential race before the election, along with the irregularities observed in Wisconsin (more absentee ballots than usual), call into question the results and indicate the possibility that widespread breach occurred.

Stein also included an exhibit from J. Alex Halderman to further support her claims. Halderman, if you recall, met with Soros operators John Podesta, John Bonifaz and Mark Elias to discuss how they were going to move forward with a recount process without making Hillary Clinton look like a sore loser.

In his exhibit offered by Jill Stein as evidence of the stolen election, J. Alex Halderman makes these statements:

6. The 2016 presidential election was subject to unprecedented cyberattacks apparently intended to interfere with the election… The Department of Homeland Security has stated that senior officials in the Russian government commissioned these attacks... Russia has sophisticated cyber-offensive capabilities and it has shown a willingness to use them to hack elections elsewhere.

Another exhibit Stein included in her petition is an article written by April Glaser titled “Here’s What We Know About Russia and the DNC Hack”. This is part of it:

DNC officials allege that the Russian government is behind the breach. The New York Times reports that the US intelligence agencies increasingly share that opinion. According to a number of top cybersecurity researchers, they’re probably right

Another exhibit she offers as proof is a New York Times article titled “Private Security Group Says Russia was Behind John Podesta Email Hack

Jill Stein tosses in a couple more MSM articles about Russians hacking everything in sight.

And that’s it. That’s her argument. The Russians did it.

This, too me, signifies the final straw of evidence we need to conclude Jill Stein is acting as John Podesta’s proxy candidate in his bid to get Hillary installed in the White House.

Jill Stein never bought into the “Russians Hacked Us!” narrative. Never once. In fact, she thought it was silly.

“…when WikiLeaks exposed massive corruption at the highest levels of the Democratic Party, high-ranking Democratic Party officials and their supporters in the media began attacking WikiLeaks as an alleged agent of Russia, despite their inability to produce any hard evidence to support this claim.” Jill Stein

This “Russia did it” meme coming from Stein is laughable because it is CLEARLY where the Clinton team was setting us up to go right before the election when they were worried they might lose.

The only thing is, they couldn’t have Hillary do it because it would look bad for them.

This morning Hillary’s Soros-paid lawyer, Mark Elias wrote a statement about this process in which he clearly states the Clinton team will be working with Stein and the others as this recount process continues.

“… , we had not planned to exercise this option ourselves, but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides. If Jill Stein follows through as she has promised and pursues recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan, we will take the same approach in those states as well.” Mark Elias

There is no doubt that this motion from Jill Stein originated in the minds of the Clinton team. Anyone saying otherwise at this point is a fool. The “Russians are hacking us” narrative is all about Hillary Clinton and has never been suggested as a reason that Jill Stein should worry about her votes being stolen.

What does that mean?

It means quite simply… this entire thing was done on behalf of Hillary Clinton and probably by her team since Jill never bought into the “Russian hackers” story in the first place.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

PropOrNot’s “Russian Propaganda Websites” Big List (and I’m not on it ಠ_ಠ )

Sat, 11/26/2016 - 11:42

by Scott Creighton

“We have used a combination of manual and automated analysis, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“red-flag”) the following as Russian propaganda outlets.” PropOrNot

I am so upset. A group of “independent concerned American citizens” has taken it upon themselves to publish a Big List of the darned Commie Infiltrated websites out there publishing Russian propaganda wittingly or unwittingly. And I am fucking not on it. I am so upset. I gotta call Vlad and ask him why all these guys get paychecks and I don’t. Goddamn it.

Here’s the list after the fold. Some are good websites. Some are disinfo peddlers. But I’m not on it. Buggers.

After Careful Consideration and Research I Conclude: Jill Stein is George Soros’ Newest Democrawhore

Sat, 11/26/2016 - 09:52

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Over at the Sane Progressive Youtube page, Debbie is going on and on saying this is NOT about helping Hillary Clinton usurp Trump’s election victory. She says she spoke with someone from the Stein camp and they assured her they “might” ask for a recount in a state that Hillary won… in the future. Debbie says this has nothing to do with Soros even though I have proven down below that his finger prints are all over this. Debbie is pushing the BS narrative that Stein thinks she was cheated and should have received votes “in the high single digits” in terms of her percentage of the votes even though I have shown in an earlier article that she received 1% on average from these states which is the exact same thing she received nationwide and the roughly the same thing in the voter polls leading up to the election. Debbie is high on the notion that somehow this audit will result in us banning the use of unverifiable electronic voting machines, which is a good idea were it to happen, but it wont. She thinks this project is about that. And she is wrong. Whether it’s about installing Queen Hillary or just destabilizing the country so they can crack down some more the end result is certainly NOT about them dismantling their election rigging system. That’s the ONE THING we know for SURE about this effort. My guess? Debbie voted Stein and refuses to imagine her candidate is on the take. (Her video is now unlisted on her Youtube page and she is requesting that it not be shared.)

We know billionaire globalist George Soros backed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. He threw another 8 million dollars at her campaign back in July and a total of 25 million dollars various other corporate/republican democrats. She’s so deep in his pockets, when she sneezes he gets an erection and I guess that’s a pretty valuable service to an 85-year-old multi-billionaire vulture capitalist.

Soros’ support for the Clintons over the years is a matter of public record. He does for them, they do for him. That’s how it works in American “democracy” these days. That’s not up for debate.

What is up for debate is whether or not Jill Stein is now in this pimp’s stable of Democrawhores (You like that? You like that!) and whether or not her push for a recount is really a typical George Soros destabilization campaign effort.

Let’s dig around and see what we can find.

Jill Stein says she is doing this in order to reaffirm people’s trust in our voting system. As I showed yesterday, in all three states she intends to audit, she performed in line with 1. her previous polling and 2. the Green Party’s historical vote tallies.

Stein refuses to admit she is taking this action in an effort to help Hillary Clinton but that position of hers is beyond any semblance of logic in that all three states were won by Donald Trump by a close margin and if they are reversed, the total of Electoral College votes switched would make Hillary Clinton the next president.

Stein didn’t challenge any states that Clinton won and she didn’t challenge any states that Trump won handily so her desired outcome is painfully obvious. This has NOTHING to do with making folks more trusting in the voting system and everything to do with changing the outcome of the election.

Or does it?

George Soros is known for backing color revolutions across the globe in order to further his business interests and he always uses the cover of his “pro-democracy” NGOs to do it. From Malaysia to Ukraine Soros has contributed to several regime change color revolutions of the past and now Soros’ various organizations have been outed for being behind various destabilization campaigns here in the United States as well. He’s even implicated in what’s being called the Purple Revolution.

With regard to this potentially destabilizing move by Jill Stein to unseat President Elect Trump and install George Soros’ hand picked candidate, Soros backed assets were all over this effort from the very beginning. That is also undeniable.

On Nov. 22nd, New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman published an article about how two “voting rights activists” met with Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and Marc Elias on Nov. 17th  to try to talk them into filing for a recount in 3 states, the same three states Jill Stein intends to file recount motions.

“The group, which includes voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, believes they’ve found persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked. The group is so far not speaking on the record about their findings and is focused on lobbying the Clinton team in private.

Last Thursday, the activists held a conference call with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to make their case..” New York magazine, Nov. 22nd

This is the article that spurred Jill Stein’s efforts to raise money for the recount. She publicly started that process on Nov. 23rd, a day after this was published and cited it as her main motivation.

Let’s see how many Soros-linked individuals were involved with this catalyst.

1. – First of all, the author, Gabriel Sherman is a fellow at the New America Foundation which gets funding from such globalist entities as the Ford Foundation, the Omidyar Network (owners of Glenn Greenwald and major backer of the color revolution in Ukriane), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (vaccines for everyone) and of course, George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.  It also gets money from CIA-linked USAID and the US State Department.

2. – John Podesta is heavily linked with George Soros as we all know from the leaked Podesta emails. Podesta was taking meetings with Soros who was telling him what he wanted too see on subjects like the manufactured immigration crisis (of cheap labor) and the TPP (which Soros is desperately trying to achieve before his death)

One email went so far as to demand they needed to “make Soros happy” and George Soros was mentioned 56 times in the Podesta emails.

It’s also understood that John Podesta’s corporate Democrat think tank, Center for American Progress, is partially funded by Soros. He not only funds it today, he created it and brought Podesta in to run it.

“Investigative journalist Robert Dreyfuss wrote in the March 1, 2004 edition of The Nation: “The idea for the Center [CAP] began with discussions in 2002 between [Morton] Halperin and George Soros, the billionaire investor.… Halperin, who heads the office of Soros’ Open Society Institute, brought [former Clinton chief of staff] John Podesta into the discussion, and beginning in late 2002 Halperin and Podesta circulated a series of papers to funders.” The Capital Research Center reports that Podesta eagerly “took on the project of creating a new laboratory for liberalism.” Discover the Networks

Podesta is well known in DC circles as the ultimate insider. He is a king maker from what everyone says. Turns out, he isn’t really all that influential… it’s his owner that has the real power.

3. – John Bonifaz is also a wholly-owned subsidiary of George Soros. Has been since day one.

Back in 94, Bonifaz started up an NGO called the National Voting Rights Institute along with his benefactor, George Soros. He got funding from the Ford Foundation and  Soros’ Open Society Foundation as well. Ultimately NVRI was bought up by Soros’ “pro-democracy” think tank Demos.   At that time, Bonifaz became a direct employee of George Soros when he accepted a job as his Senior Legal Fellow for Demos.

Now Bonifaz runs something called Free Speech for People where they supposedly challenge corporate power in the country. But even that has connections to Soros.

“Dr. Jill Stein’s recount team is populated by a team of Lawyers – but among the most prominent of them all is Attorney John Bonifaz,, Co-Founder and President of “Free Speech for Free People” – and his board of Directors includes Lance Lindblom, former Executive Vice President at Soros’ Foundation’s Open Society Institute/Open Society Fund.”

And from the Free Speech for People website:

“Lance Lindblom is a member of the Free Speech For People Board of Directors. Previously, Mr. Lindblom was the President and CEO of the Nathan Cummings Foundation, an organization that seeks to build a socially and economically just society that values nature and protects the ecological balance for future generations. Before he joined the staff of NCF, Mr. Lindblom served as a Program Officer at the Ford Foundation, focusing on democratic accountability, economic and social policy, and globalization. Prior to that position, Mr. Lindblom was the Executive Vice President at Soros Foundation’s Open Society Institute/Open Society Fund

This Reddit page has dug up quite a bit on Mr. Bonifaz.

4. – Marc Elias, the lawyer on the phone with Bonifaz and Halderman, also has a background of being funded by George Soros.

“A Democratic legal fight against restrictive voting laws enacted in recent years by Republican-controlled state governments is being largely paid for by a single liberal benefactor: the billionaire philanthropist George Soros...

But it turns out that Mr. Soros has already agreed to put as much as $5 million into the litigation effort,..

The lawsuits — which are being led by a lawyer whose clients include Mrs. Clinton’s campaign — are attacking a variety of measures, including voter-identification requirements that Democrats consider onerous, time restrictions imposed on early voting that they say could make it difficult to cast ballots the weekend before Election Day, and rules that could nullify ballots cast in the wrong precinct.

The lawyer, Marc Elias, who specializes in voter-protection issues, was in contact with Mr. Soros in January 2014 when Mr. Elias was exploring a series of federal lawsuits before that year’s midterm election and in advance of the 2016 campaign” New York Times, June 5th, 2016

5 million dollars from Soros to fund legal efforts to promote Hillary’s chances of winning this election. That is over and above the 8 million Soros kicked into Hillary’s campaign a month after writing that 5 million dollar check.

There is an email from Elias telling the Clinton team they should get the whole of the unDNC to attack Bernie Sanders for suggesting the Clinton Foundation may be nothing more than a money laundering scheme. He also said they should attack him like the RNC attacked Trump for suggesting the election might be rigged. Ironic, right?

So there you have it. Four of the five people involved in that Nov. 17th phone conference which started this whole recount psyop are directly connected with or on the payroll of George Soros.

It’s also being reported that Jill Stein’s fundraiser page on the Green Party website has a little hint in it’s code which links it to Soros’ Democracy Engine.

Stein started off asking for 2.5 million dollars. That was due to the filing fees in the states Trump barely won.

  • Wisconsin: $1.1 million by Nov 25
  • Pennsylvania: $0.5 million by Nov 28
  • Michigan: $0.6 million by Nov 30

Now she wants 7 million dollars presumably to pay for the services of people like Elias, Podesta and Bonifaz.

Though we can’t prove at this point that George Soros is behind the funding of this action, we do know that they aren’t being exactly transparent when it comes to publishing the names of the donors. In fact they are being quite opaque.

What we do know is this: almost every one of the players involved in this process have a direct link to George Soros who spent a lot of money trying to usher in the Age of Hillary this year. And he also tends to enjoy destabilizing various nations so that once chaos ensues, he is able to insert himself into the political mix and make some more money.

If Jill Stein tries to keep asserting this has nothing to do with making Hillary Clinton the next president, she is either a liar or a fool. These Soros assets went to Podesta and presented him with an idea. They didn’t want it to make Hillary look like a desperate candidate, so they apparently took the plan to Jill Stein to get her to do it. Then they had their Soros “journalist” write up the story based on “sources familiar with the phone call” and publish it the day before Jill rolled out her fundraising campaign.

I’m sorry folks but that is just so convoluted and obvious any silly blogger can understand it.

In spite of her public protestations, apparently Jill Stein is now just one more of Soros’ Democrawhores in his ever increasing stable of sleaze. Whether he is indirectly funding this action or not, Jill Stein is Soros’ newest bottom bitch and he’s put her out on the street to earn for him.

Unfortunately there is just no other way to look at it.

Fascist Race-baiter Paul Joseph Watson Decries “the commies are coming!” While Promoting a Cartoonish Band of Agent Provocateurs

Fri, 11/25/2016 - 08:40

by Scott Creighton

As Jill Stein continually ups the price-tag for her “Save the Election for Hillary” recount action, which promises to inflame the nation once it goes live, Paul Joseph Watson, with a little help from the Austin police department, is preemptively stoking the flames of hatred toward the left. She started off saying they only needed 2.5 million and now she says they need 7 million.

Either Paul Joseph Watson is the dumbest man to ever get a paycheck, or he’s a Ziofascist disinformation asset working on behalf of the coming police state.

Or both.

Don’t think it’s fair to say the agent provocateurs are cops in costumes? Try this: get your AK, put on a mask and head out to some neighborhood somewhere with school buses across the street and start marching up and down the block screaming about how many cops you are going to kill tomorrow. See what happens.

Of course they’re cops.

Over at Di$info Jone$’ website, Paul Joseph Watson is screeching about the damn commies again. This time he’s using a video, obviously put out by the Austin police department, featuring some of their off-duty officers playing dress-up and pretending to be “ebil commies” chanting about how many cops they need to kill.

About 15 “Austin Red Guards” walked down the street, protected by some of their brothers in blue, chanting whatever fascists think “commies” think about them. They “want to kill cops”, they “love Satan”, they “enjoy killing babies”… you get the message. Ridiculous, third-grade level, cartoonish Red Scare/ Neo McCarthyism type bullshit.

I bet Watson thanks God everyday for Texas home-schooling.

Isn’t it funny how Paul Joseph Watson supposedly hates Hillary Clinton and yet they see eye-to-eye on pretty much everything including that niffy Scoop Jackson, New McCarthyism stuff? Ever wonder about that?

Here’s what PJW wrote about this obviously staged bit of police street theater:

“Anti-Trump communist protesters in Austin were caught on camera chanting in favor of cop killings despite a nationwide spate of police officers being murdered.

With some of them dressed in hammer and sickle face masks, the agitators shouted “FTP! F**k the police” as they marched down the sidewalk, while others stuck middle fingers up at cops in nearby vehicles.

“What’s better than 1 dead cop? Two dead cops!” the communists chanted, making it all the way up to 15 with the words, “What’s better than 14 dead cops? Fifteen dead cops!”

As we have previously documented, communist groups in Austin are particularly vile, with one such outfit, the Red Guards, having previously been caught on camera attacking a pro-life protest while announcing their love for Satan and killing babies.” PJW at Di$info Jone$

The video of the scene shows a couple police recruits or Alex Jones interns dressed up as their McCarthite worst nightmare. They have red bandanas with hammer & sickle images printed on them and they are carrying what appear to be movie prop guns.

According to the script, “Red Guard” were there protesting a 24-person strong “White Lives Matter” agriprop event that no one seemed interested in apart from the paid assets pretending to be protesters.

I wonder if Red Guard and the White Helmets have the same video directors and script writers.

Paul Joseph Watson was determined to agitate against everyone in his little article so he tossed in an already debunked video from 2014 where another group of agent provocateurs marched down a New York street, again protected by their brothers in blue, chanting about wanting more “dead cops”

Frankly I am surprised he didn’t toss in one of “ISIS’s” many fake videos in there as well to really get his rabid idiotic fan base going. You should read some of the comments left by influence peddlers on Di$info’s site and at Youtube where that is posted. Remarkable.

Someone over at VT tore PJW a new one for promoting this obvious disinformation.

Unfortunately it looks like someone is setting up a major bit of unrest in the country over the next couple of weeks. With Stein doing Hillary’s dirty work and the likes of Di$info Jone$ ringing the riot dinner bell for his fascist following, looks like we could be in for a bumpy ride this month.

Jill Stein, Working for NEOCON Team Hillary, is Pushing for Recount in 3 Key States to Make Killary Our President (or to kick off civil war)

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 16:18

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: New York Times admits Clinton supporters are backing Jill Stein initiative. That was fairly obvious after she raised a million more dollars in a day and a half than she raised for her entire campaign this year.

Jill Stein polled regularly at between 1% and 3% across the country in the run-up to the general election in 2016. The closer it got to election day, the smaller her numbers. You can check Real Clear Politics if you don’t believe me.

Nationwide, Stein finished 4th in the presidential election with 1.02% of the votes. She wasn’t even on the ballot in all 50 states (44 + D.C.) and she lost in a big way to that idiot Libertarian, Gary Johnson who more than tripled her numbers. Plus, they were competent enough with their farce of a campaign to get on the ballot in all 50 states.

The Stein team of the Green Party has come out over the past couple of days with a plan to raise enough money to contest the election results in 3 key states: Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Stein supposedly thinks her numbers were low in those three states and wants a recount.

In Michigan she came in 4th with 1.07% of the vote. In Pennsylvania she came in 4th as well with .82% of the vote. And finally, in Wisconsin, Jill Stein came in 4th with 1.01% of the vote.

Historically, the Green Party has only gotten more than 1% of the votes once and that was when Ralph Nader ran in 2000.

So what is the big controversy? Am I missing something Dr. Stein? You only got 500k votes in 2012 and now you’re convinced you were robbed?

Who convinced Jill her numbers were low? Podesta?

Were Jill Stein’s numbers really that low in comparison with her overall national results? No.

Will the recount make any difference at all to Jill Stein’s campaign? No.

Why those three states in particular? Why not any others where the results weren’t super close? Why not states won by Hillary Clinton?

I’ll tell you why, because those states are close between the  candidates who finished number 1 and number 2 in the voting, Donald Trump won them all in a surprise result and the combined Electoral College votes from just those three states if flipped, would make all the neocons and the establishment Dems and Republicans very happy by making Hillary Clinton the president of the United States of America.

Currently, Clinton is more than 2 million votes ahead of Trump in the popular vote but trails Trump, 232 to 306, in all-important electoral votes. If Wisconsin (10 electoral votes), Michigan (16 electoral votes) and Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes) flipped in a recount, Clinton would win in the electoral count, 278-260 ”

Jill Stein is running around doing interviews for MSM “news” sites like she’s been named the next pope or something.

Somehow or another, this year all the MSM outlets are very interested in the possibility of election rigging on a systemic level. Funny, they have never been interested in that before. Not in Ohio back in 2004, not in South Carolina back in 2010 and not all across the country during the unDemocratic Primary of 2016.

In fact, it was downright unAmerican to even suggest such a thing was possible in the month leading up to the election. That is of course if you weren’t saying Russia was going to do it. That was fine.

But now, somehow, the complicit media is giving “progressive” Jill Stein a pulpit from which to decry our election system as potentially hack-able from the base level and Jill doesn’t seem to smell a rat as she happily runs around enjoying all the attention.

And her party has raised a shit-load of money doing this little project of theirs.

Stein’s website shows they have raised over 4 MILLION DOLLARS in just over 24 HOURS to fund the recount process. She is on track to collect 4.5 million very soon (in a matter of hours)

FOUR MILLION DOLLARS IN JUST OVER TWENTY FOUR HOURS. And the number is rising with every MSM promo they give her.

Let’s put that into perspective shall we?

Throughout her entire campaign this season, Jill Stein and the Green Party collected a total of 3.5 million dollars to make her president.

And now her fan base blows that out of the water by ONE MILLION MORE BUCKS… in a day?

Funny isn’t it? Jill Stein’s people KNOW SHE’S NOT GOING TO BE MADE PRESIDENT BY THIS RECOUNT IN 3 MEANINGLESS STATES TO HER… and yet they contribute at a breathless pace.

Obviously, Hillary Clinton’s people are funding this effort because quite frankly HILLARY CLINTON AND HER NEOCON BACKERS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM IT.

Jill Stein supporters dont’ care. She’s not going to win anything out of this. And she’s not going to get enough votes in these three states to push the Green Party over 5% nationwide which would give them critical funding help next election cycle. So they get nothing from this.

But Hillary’s people. They get everything from it. That’s why they are using Jill Stein as their little patsy to push for the recount.

There are currently two schools of thought in the great stolen election debate of 2016. Some say Hillary’s team tried their best to steal it but failed due to unexpected turnout in key states like Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Others believe the establishment that hated Trump and promoted Hillary like there was no tomorrow decided for reasons unknown to put their fingers on the scale on his behalf.

I would probably be considered a proponent of the former if I had to make a choice. I kinda believe it didn’t really matter to TPTB and as a result, all stock market indicators have reached record highs, all-time record highs, since neoliberal Trump beat neoliberal Clinton.

This could be all being done to create more panic and chaos in the country and that is something that has to be considered. Just imagine what happens after all these anti-Trump protests were staged after the election, if they were suddenly to come back and say, “no wait. Hillary actually won. Don’t change the drapes. Obama’s girl is taking over”

This country would implode and might just be what the doctor ordered in order to get that purely authoritarian state they want for the next neoliberal dictatorship in the Shining City on the Hill”

Either Jill Stein is a useful idiot or she decided to jump on board with the winning team and ride in for the big score. And she will get a big score for this one.

What a disappointment she is.

Meet NPR’ Poster-boy for the “Fake News” Crisis, Jestin Coler – an Obama Administration Cognitive Infiltration Asset

Thu, 11/24/2016 - 09:31

by Scott Creighton

“The whole idea from the start was to build a site that could kind of infiltrate the echo chambers of the alt-right.” Sunstein disinfo asset Jestin Coler

Weeks ago someone tried to get me to write about this story about an FBI agent supposedly linked to the Hillary email leaks killing his wife and taking his own life. The story was completely bogus. I figured it came out to distract people from the Seth Rich story or discredit it by association. The fake FBI agent story didn’t get a lot of attention, though it was shared quite a bit via influence peddlers on social media. Aside from that, folks seemed to sniff it out pretty quickly as bull-dung.

Everyone is talking about “fake news” websites these days. It’s one of the trendy reasons of choice explaining why real liberals chose not to vote for the republican war-monger Hillary Clinton in the presidential election this year. BernieBots, junkie “progressives” and James Comey are other popular excuses but “fake news” is ranking up there at the top of the list.

Opportunist and “media expert” Melissa Zimdars made herself into an instant online celebrity when she cobbled together a list of “fake news” websites which included some quality websites like Activist Post, Raw Story, NoMoreFakeNews and 21st Century Wire. Unfortunately for Melissa, her list also included some proven government disinformation outlets like Zero Hedge, Prison Planet and Veterans  Today and the publishing of her list dramatically increased page views for a number of real alternative news sites. People were curious and wanted to see what they were about.

So she called out disinfo sites as disinfo and sent thousands of folks to read real news at real news websites. Not really a “win” when you think about it. Consequently, her “big list” now has no websites listed.

Now NPR has unwittingly done the same thing. Meet Cass Sunstein disinfo asset Jestin Coler.

In an article published yesterday (linked to me by a reader utu) NPR writes about how they tracked down the owner of the first website that published that BS story about the FBI agent who whacked his wife and then himself. Ownership of that disinfo website was cleverly hidden from view, but they hired a professional and got his street address in some Los Angeles suburb.

His name is Jestin Coler and when they first approached him he refused to talk with them, sending them away with nothing more than the reporters card in his hand. Less than an hour later, he makes contact with the reporter and decides to talk. A full interview followed.

First of all, Jestin admitted that he set the websites (he owns many) up in order to create disinformation that he could use to discredit alternative news websites in 2012. Specifically, being a registered Democrat, he targeted right-leaning alternative websites, hoping to get them to run with the fake stories his group created (he claims over 30 employees (meaning over 30 disinfo assets probably working under Special Operations Command contracts on for the military directly) so he could publish evidence later that would discredit his own fake stories.

“The whole idea from the start was to build a site that could kind of infiltrate the echo chambers of the alt-right, publish blatantly or fictional stories and then be able to publicly denounce those stories and point out the fact that they were fiction” Coler

What they would do is write the fake story, publish it on their fake news site and then get their fake assets with their fake Facebook accounts to go over to Trump-supporting Facebook pages and websites and say “have you seen THIS!” kind of crap. They would link them back to the fake story on the fake website and the hook was set, so to speak.

So all it took was to write that story. Everything about it was fictional: the town, the people, the sheriff, the FBI guy. And then … our social media guys kind of go out and do a little dropping it throughout Trump groups and Trump forums and boy it spread like wildfire.” Coler

During the interview, Coler admits he has given various interviews as “Allen Montgomery” talking about the harm “fake news” does to the country. Here’s one he did under that name with the BBC in Nov. of this year.

During an earlier interview with fake news propaganda website VICE News, “Allen Montgomery” makes a rather telling admission:

“Montgomery started the site in February 2013 for fun and profit, but it evolved into what he describes as a sort of anti-propaganda effort against conservative rumormongering, particularly on Facebook. National Report’s stories rely on both naivety and inattentiveness on the part of readers, banking on the fact that people will often read only the headline and skim the first few paragraphs of a story — if that — before sharing. ” VICE “News”

It’s interesting because Coler admits in that interview the propaganda aspect of his work.

In the NPR interview, he explains he has a degree in political science and has deep interests in… propaganda:

“My educational background is in political science. I’ve always enjoyed the ideas of propaganda and misinformation. Then I coupled that with an interest in what makes things go viral…” Coler

Then he goes on to explain this project of his goes way beyond just Donald Trump and is more focused on discrediting the alternative media outlets in favor of drumming up support for the corporatist main stream media like discredited CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.

Well, this isn’t just a Trump-supporter problem. This is a right-wing issue. Sarah Palin’s famous blasting of the lamestream media is kind of record and testament to the rise of these kinds of people. The post-fact era is what I would refer to it as. This isn’t something that started with Trump. This is something that’s been in the works for a while. His whole campaign was this thing of discrediting mainstream media sources, which is one of those dog whistles to his supporters.” Coler

Here we have a guy who by his own admission, is deliberately planting fake stories in the alternative media in an effort to prop-up support for the failing MSM outlets that are constantly being exposed for producing real fake news about all sorts of things from “Zika Babies” to “ISIS” to “Iraq’s WMDs”

We are supposed to believe this “do gooder” just came to this career choice out of his own personal desire to fix the problem of trust in the MSM all on his own. But that’s simply not the case.

Remember, “Jestin Coler” or “Allen Montgomery” is a registered Democrat.

You know who else is a registered Democrat? Cass Sunstein, Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs  2009-2012  and husband of career liar Samantha Power who herself peddles in fake news all the time while serving as Obama’s Amb. to the United Nations.

Here’s a little of what Cass Sunstein wrote about his approach to dealing with alternative journalism back before Obama selected him to serve as his Disinfo Czar:

“II. Governmental Responses What can government do about conspiracy theories? Among the things it can do, what should it do? We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. (3) Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. (4) Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. (5) Government might engage in informal communication with such parties, encouraging them to help. Each instrument has a distinctive set of potential effects, or costs and benefits, and each will have a place under imaginable conditions. However, our main policy idea is that government should engage in cognitive infiltration of the groups that produce conspiracy theories , which involves a mix of (3), (4) and (5)…

Second, we suggest a distinctive tactic for breaking up the hard core of extremists who supply conspiracy theories: cognitive infiltration of extremist groups, whereby government agents or their allies (acting either virtually or in real space, and either openly or anonymously) will undermine the crippled epistemology of those who subscribe to such theories. They do so by planting doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups, thereby introducing beneficial cognitive diversity” Cass Sunstein, Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs  2009-2012 (husband of career liar Samantha Power )

Point one is to have the government shut down independent journalist websites that publish information the government doesn’t want disseminated in the society. That’s the first suggestion.

The second is to impose a kind of a tax on them, which Google and Facebook have already begun to do by pulling advertising from sites declared “fake news” by our glorious leaders. To my knowledge CNN and the New York Times still enjoy ample advertising allotments from Google.

The third program he puts forward is the cognitive infiltration of such websites and groups with the distinct objective of discrediting them in the eyes of the followers and participants of those groups or websites as well as in the eyes of the public in general.

Sunstein concludes with language that is similar to that used by Jestin Coler:

“Some conspiracy theories create serious risks. They do not merely undermine democratic debate; in extreme cases, they create or fuel violence. If government can dispel such theories, it should do so. One problem is that its efforts might be counterproductive, because efforts to rebut conspiracy theories also legitimate them. We have suggested, however, that government can minimize this effect by rebutting more rather than fewer theories, by enlisting independent groups to supply rebuttals, and by cognitive infiltration designed to break up the crippled epistemology of conspiracy- minded groups and informationally isolated social networks.” Cass Sunstein, Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs  2009-2012 (husband of career liar Samantha Power )

Justin Coler is a Cass Sunstein-styled cognitive infiltration asset working with a team of government sponsored assets doing their level best to discredit alternative news outlets that are reporting the truth at a time when people are turning away from the fake-news-producing MSM networks like CNN, Fox and MSNBC.

Unfortunately for Mr. Coler, when a reporter knocked on his door where he lives with his wife and children and asked him about Disinfomedia (his shell company that runs all his Sunstein disinfo projects) he was screwed.

That’s why he contacted them 40 minutes or so after they knocked on his door. More than likely Coler contacted his handler and was instructed to get out in front of the story as best he could before it blew up in his face.

What he was counting on was NPR’s reporter not knowing about Cass Sunstein.

What he was hoping for was no conspiracy theorist websites making that connection for them.

Damn conspiracy theorists. Guess they gotta lock em up or ban them from the interwebs since plan 3 ain’t working anymore.

The other possible explanation for this NPR article is this: they needed a poster-boy for their “fake news” disinformation campaign and who better than a Cass Sunstein shill who is deliberately posting ridiculous stories? Who would they choose otherwise? 21st Century Wire? ActivistPost? American Everyman? They certainly wouldn’t want to make the same mistake Melissa Zimdars made, funneling thousands of new readers to websites with real investigative journalism on their pages. So of course they would pick a controlled opposition asset where they could be sure their readers wouldn’t’ accidentally come across any real truth.

Happy Thanksgiving folks.
