Germany moves to ban free speech online

from The Duran

The law seeks to impose extremely punitive fines to social media network operators when users post what the German regime deems to be ‘hate speech’ or ‘fake news’.

The German Bundestag (parliament) has voted to implement a law which would impose a fine of €50million to social media companies who failed to remove so-called “hate speech” and so-called “fake news”.

According to the law, social media companies would have just 24 hours to comply with the German government’s edict before the monumental fine would be issued.

This legislation is not only poorly conceived, almost impossible to enforce and excessive in its punitive stance towards private enterprise, but it is just plain wrong…

Brian Karem and His Apologists Know EXACTLY What “Fake News” Is (AE video)

Not “Ridiculous Nonsense” Anymore: Yes, British Intelligence and Others Did Spy on Trump Campaign Using the 14 Eyes Program

by Scott Creighton

After listening to a month’s worth of the complicit media yelling their outrage at Sean Spicer, Devin Nunes, Judge Napolitano, Donald Trump and all the other “conspiracy theorists” (myself included) who dared suggest it was even slightly possible that British intelligence agencies used the 5 Eyes program to spy on the Trump campaign staff in the lead-up to the election and then share that information with the Obama administration (who at the time was working as a surrogate for the Hillary team) today we have confirmation that, yes, GCHQ and other British intel services did in fact spy on team Trump and share the information they collected with Obama. And it predates the “Russian hacking” bull crap.

The narrative being sculpted is that the Brits were simply assisting in the ongoing investigation into the “Russian hacking” story but the truth is, their intel dates back to late 2015… long before the “Russian hacking” narrative.

The Guardian, who broke this story, say “It is understood that GCHQ was at no point carrying out a targeted operation against Trump or his team or proactively seeking information..” and that is it in terms of providing any substantial evidence at all that they weren’t deliberately targeting the Trump campaign staff during the election process looking for juicy info they could feed Obama and American intelligence services to use against him in the election.

Turns out, a number of foreign agencies had their hands in the effort to thwart the Trump candidacy and Russia wasn’t one of them.

The Joseph Kony “Threat” was Always Fake News

(Check out what I wrote about the Kony 2012 psyop way back in 2012 when it mattered. I even did a little graphic to make my point. Still quite proud of that one)

by Glen Ford, from BAR

The United States government is the biggest purveyor of fake news on the planet. In fact, most of U.S. foreign policy is based on lies and outrageous distortions that are methodically disseminated by corporate media in the form of fake news. Fake news is a weapon that has killed millions in Libya, Iraq and Syria, where the United States and its allies have armed and trained jihadist terrorists to wage a proxy war against secular governments, while claiming to be fighting these same jihadists. Every word that President Obama ever said about Libya and Syria has been a lie — a fake story.

The threat that Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army supposedly posed in central Africa was also fake news, a lie circulated in order to justify sending 100 U.S. Special Forces troops to the region, in 2011. Obama needed a villain, so he chose Joseph Kony, a guerilla fighter from the Acholi people of northern Uganda, as his nemesis. The Acholi had been defeated in a civil war by another guerilla fighter, Yoweri Museveni, who went on to become Ronald Reagan’s favorite African and a main puppet and hit man for the U.S. in Africa. He would play a key role in the genocides in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. But first, Museveni laid waste to the Acholi people’s lands in Uganda, massacred them by the thousands, and locked them up in concentration camps…

No, Gen. Flynn did Not Ask for an Immunity Deal (full statement from Robert Kelner)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Now if you want too see what a real immunity deal looks like, just go back to the FBI’s “investigation” of Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private server to keep her crimes from becoming public record. That’s what an immunity deal looks like. And that one is real.

The Mockingbird press are beside themselves this morning saying Trump’s former National Security Adviser, Gen. M. Flynn, has “requested immunity from prosecution” in exchange for his testimony before the new Senate Intelligence Witch Hunt Committee. That is absolutely fake news. Its a deliberate, bold-faced lie.

Below you will find the actual statement released by Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner.

The text of the unsigned statement is as follows:

Di$info Jone$ Apologizes for His Role in the PizzaGate Distraction Psyop

by Scott Creighton

Of course PizzaGate was a psyop. It was designed to distract alternative media sites from the real disclosures in the Podesta/DNC files. And of course, Di$info Jone$ and his merry band of complicit cognitive infiltrators bought into it hook, line and sinker.

“That’s right people. I’m an astro-turfer. I’m not here to help things. I’m here to make activists look like freaks. I take viable issues of real concern and make them sound as ridiculous as possible. Just like all the other bobble heads out there, I’m here to distract you morons and keep you fighting about nonsense… and I get paid to do it…. if you can’t tell this is all an act.. it’s a schtick. I NEED MONEY!!” Di$info Jone$ (sort of)

But now old AJ is bravely groveling before the man saying he’s sorry for saying they were serving up various flavors of pedophilia at Comet Pizza in their basement that doesn’t actually exist. AJ says he “doesn’t think” Comet Pizza has a legal claim against him for damages (liable?) but he’s sorry none the less and thinks everyone who took Di$info Jone$ at his word should quickly issue their own apologies before the lawsuits commence.

Demonizing Russia: Fake News And The Conflict Of Interest Involving Amazon, The Washington Post, And The CIA

by Sarah R. Runge, Medium.com

As the controversy over fake news rages on, a notable conflict of interest exists concerning one of the media outlets that has driven much of the conversation.

While much of the blame for so-called “fake news” has been placed on smaller, more independent publications, it may turn out that the lion’s share of responsibility actually belongs to the more established media outlets.

As a leading American publication, the Washington Post has earned an air of legitimacy that many newer, less well-known publications do not yet possess. This may not last however, as the conflict of interest that was created when the ownership of the Washington Post changed hands recently may have already begin to call into question the credibility of one of America’s most distinguished publications.

In 2013, the Washington Post was purchased by Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon. That same year, Amazon also obtained a CIA contract worth $600 million. At the time, the Nation pointed out the conflict of interest that these dealings posed…

Shortly after the CIA contract was finalized, Amazon issued a statement, saying simply, “We look forward to a successful relationship with the CIA.”..

Bezos’ conflict of interest is again worth mentioning after the Washington Post used highly questionable sources to promote identifying and blacklisting “fake news” sites in late November..

..the Washington Post’s fake news expose was riddled with questionable information and unsubstantiated claims…

Several weeks later, in early December, the Washington Post again created controversy by alleging Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election… The article cited an anonymous CIA source…
