WASHINGTON POST RECEIVES CASH FROM RUSSIA TO PUBLISH PROPAGANDA
Revealed: The same Washington Post that accused 200 web sites of being puppets for Russian propaganda actually TAKES money from. . . Russia
Within days after Donald J. Trump took the country (and the world) by storm and won the Nov. 8 election, the Washington establishment media, suddenly shaken to its core by the realization it could not muster enough power and influence to push Hillary Clinton into the White House, began a smear campaign against the president-elect.
Launching the first in what would become a series of fake news salvos, the Washington Post published a story full of baseless, unsubstantiated allegations made by a shady organization no one had ever heard of that Russian intelligence fed information to hundreds of "alt-right" web sites aimed at hurting Clinton and helping Trump.
Among the named sites: Natural News, which prompted founder/editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, to demand a retraction. (RELATED: Trump calls out press for sabotaging his efforts to improve relations with Russia)
The Post, within a day, essentially did that, all but admitting that its fake news story about fake Russian news...was fake. But the die had been cast and the Post put the narrative in play: Without proof or any evidence, the paper claimed (and others followed) that Russia unduly influenced the election outcome for Trump because Moscow hated Clinton and anyway, that's the only way she could possibly have lost to a former reality TV host and billionaire real estate mogul non-politician.
Now, we find out that the real recipient of Russian largess is...the Washington Post.
As reported by Liberty Blitzkrieg, a recent interview between Fox News' Tucker Carlson and Eric Wemple of the Post, who covers the media, was forced to answer why his paper accepted so-called "native advertising" from Russia, which is essentially the Post receiving money from Moscow to publish propaganda.
While that may be news to most Americans, it certainly is a poorly-kept secret within the world of the Washington media. In fact, in 2007, Slate lampooned Russia's Washington Post propaganda effort, "Russia: Beyond the Headlines"
"Soviet propaganda hit the skids during the Gorbachev era, and as the empire broke up, its propaganda essentially vanished. But the heavy-handed purveyors of party-line orthodoxy and nationalist cant have returned with the rise of President Vladimir Putin," Slate reported, not mentioning that the return of propaganda was largely thanks to Putin, a former KGB agent himself who is familiar with the intelligence tactic.
The Daily Caller also reported on this - and in fact, itâ€™s not just Russia, but China also pays homage to the Post to run its propaganda:
Chinese and Russian propaganda supplements are regularly included in The Washington Post, but the widely read newspaper won't say how much money it gets on the deals.
My comment: Putin is former KGB. Putin never called out the Washington Post for this. And I would therefore suspect that Putin may have in fact been for Hillary, so Russia could swoop in as the hero after America was destroyed. But he had to play against her to make it all believable.
Remember the cold war game plan:
The cold war plan all along was to make life in America such hell that Russia would be seen as the savior when it all fell apart. Put on your cold war thinking cap if you are old enough to remember this: Khrushchev said he'd bury the United States, not with military/economic might, but with social warfare. AND NOW WHAT DO WE HAVE IN THE MEDIA AND DEMOCRAT PARTY, AND TO A LARGE EXTENT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY? Cold war era Bolshevik communists, dyed in the wool of Khrushchev. See anything fishy with that? It is an established fact that the Rothchilds, Soros, and the rest of the clan supported these types.
SO: If Putin is KGB, would it be too far fetched to speculate that the collapse of the Soviet Union was a hoax, and Putin was playing the hero so America would welcome Russia as a savior, after all the mayhem and destruction Russian operatives on American soil caused? The Clintons and Obama are clearly communist, as is the entire university system and mainstream media in America now. Would it be far fetched to say that Hillary would have been the crowning achievement of a massive cold war effort? Propaganda payouts from Russia to the Washington Post would surely support that hypothesis.
Now, I don't think that today's Russia is the same old Russia by a long shot. And that is because the people who ran the old Russia went elsewhere. And I don't think the original cold war plan is progressing as originally intended because there are too many new players with their own interests. However, to say the old Russia is completely dead would be an absolute folly, when it is still run by former KGB and all of the old Communist companies like Sukhoi and Tupolev are still alive. A LOT of the old Communist structure is still there. Russia did not just up and die when the Soviet Union fell apart. Obviously Putin would know about the payouts to the Washington Post. Why did that not show up on RT when all the "Russian Propaganda" garbage was happening to stop it cold, if Putin really was pro-Trump?
The game was played so well that it is really hard to see what the actual reality is. But there is one clear truth in all of it: The people on Team Hillary, and many more, clearly, clearly, are the same communists that ran Russia. They left Russia in the late 80's and came to America as the Soviet Union was "collapsing". One way or another, they want the old Russian system restored. They almost had it. Food for thought.
