Revealed: The same Washington Post that accused 200 web sites of being puppets for Russian propaganda actually TAKES money from… Russia

(Natural News) 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 must 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 Postpropaganda 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, it’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.

Fast forward to the 2016 election coverage – by the Post in particular, Washington’s quasi-official paper of record. Reporting on alleged Trump-Russia ties without a modicum of evidence or proof is the equivalent of journalistic malpractice; doing that while actually taking money from the Russian government and then trying to defend it is just reprehensible.

During his interview with Carlson, Wemple’s initial excuse for allowing the propaganda to be placed in his paper was that he believes readers of the Post fully understand that such inserts are propaganda – though it’s not how they would know since, while they are marked as an “advertisement,” they are not clearly marked.

“That’s really your answer?” Carlson responded, noting that Wemple once attacked Politicoco-founder Mike Allen for running native advertising, saying he was “all spun up” about it.

He also took Wemple to task for – as a media reporter – pointing out that his own papertakes native advertising designed to fool people into thinking a certain way about Russia that isn’t accurate.

Watch the full exchange below, but the main point here is this: The Post has been merciless in its effort to push the unsubstantiated and unproven narrative that Russia used fake news to help Trump, all the while padding its bottom line with money from the Russian government

What To Do About Dreamers According To The President

Gronda Morin

Related imageOn 2/16/17 Brian Bennett and Michael M. Memoli of the LA Times, have published a report, outlining ways that the president’s team are considering to finagle the rightfully sensitive issue of DACA and the “Dreamers” while minimizing the negative consequences for any of their actions.

Here are excerpts from the article, “The White House has found ways to end protection for ‘Dreamers’ while shielding Trump from blowback:”

“While President Trump wavered Thursday on whether he will stop shielding from deportation people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, his aides have identified at least two ways to quietly end their protections without his fingerprints.”Image result for PHOTOS OF DREAMERS

“An executive order has already been drafted to end the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that allows hundreds of thousands of the immigrants to live and work openly in the U.S. Trump used that legal mechanism to great fanfare to expand deportation authority and restrict entry to the…

WILL POROSHENKO BEGIN A NEW WAR IN DONBASS? HOW WILL PUTIN, TRUMP REACT? LadaRayWebinar1 Q4

Futurist Trendcast

I have been busy with many other topics; Novorossia/Donbass and Ukraine, have been put on a back burner in the past month or two. Meanwhile, Ukraine and Donbass are about to again become headline news. Last year I wrote about the heating up events in Donbass and about my prediction that Trump is preparing to dump Poroshenko and Ukraine. As many of you know, my articles/ videos, Earth Shift Reports, Webinars and Predictions often preempt the real events by months, or even years.

Those who are smart will follow me and listen carefully to what I say today, in order to be prepared for tomorrow. All others – feel free to listen and support sensationalist and fake news, after the events have already occurred and you are too late to the party. Your choice!

Russia Has Now Become Mum About Our US President

It seems as if all of Russia’s efforts to influence U.S. politics to be more favorable towards it, have been for naught.

Here is the rest of the story:

On 2/18/17, Andrew Roth of the Washington Post penned the following article, “If Russia tried to influence the U.S. election, things aren’t going as planned.”

A funny thing happened in Russia this past week:  President Trump’s face, once ubiquitous on the talk shows and evening news programs that tack closely to the Kremlin’s political agenda, was suddenly absent. Gone.”

“Like they flipped a switch,” said Alexey Kovalev, a journalist at the Moscow Times who covers Russian state media.”

“It’s not hard to guess why. Engulfed in scandal over contacts between senior aides and Russian officials, the Trump administration has sought to put daylight between itself and the Kremlin.”

“In a single week, Washington has complained that Russia is violating a…

Funny i don’t see Merkel opening up her precious apartment to refugees, which she had occupied for many years (Kurpfergraben 6, 10117, Berlin Deutschland). What a horrible puppet for the globalist regime!

The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq.

She also said Islam “is not the cause of terrorism” and that combating extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.

In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin’s Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.
