One of the most powerful forms of propaganda is demoralization. Soviet elites were encouraged to flaunt the hypocritical double standard that they lived under - that they were not subject to the same "subjective" laws of the People
The #AwanBrothers scandal, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, Comey, et al., jihadi terrorists compound, even the Kate Stenlie affair - average citizens, even @TuckerCarlson points out the obvious double standard that the politically protected live under as opposed to We The People
all these seemingly unconnected media incidents are used by propagandists like @CNN@brianstelter@ChrisCuomo to flaunt the hypocritical double standard that the politically protected live under
They are used - weaponized - to demoralize We The People
Totally agree with @lauferlaw. The consequential news today is #Manafort, yet the networks prefer a play by play of #Omarosa and @realDonaldTrump’s distraction game. @cnn and @msnbc answer to the god of ratings. If they spent more time on journalism, we would be further ahead.
Omarosa is neither a victim, nor a whistle-blower. To suggest her self-centred narrative is comparable to a systematic and sustained attack on the US by a hostile foreign nation is like believing the plot of a pot-boiler you’re reading on a plane about to crash into the ground.
It’s also suspect her revelations are not material to Trump and Russia. It’s almost like she’s been produced by @MarkBurnettTV in an attempt to divert attention from far more consequential events.
🚨EVERY DAY now Trump abuses his power🚨. Today he is tainting the #ManafortTrial jury, in day 2 of deliberations: "I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad…He happens to be a very good person. It's very said what they've done to Paul Manafort."
Trump abuse of power du jour—weighing in on #ManafortTrial as the jury deliberates—is welcomed by Manafort attorney: "We were very happy to hear from the president, that he's supporting Mr Manafort." What a mockery of American justice, hoping for mistrial.
Why was Andrea Chalupa so excited about #Manafort resigning and how did she know he was going to face an investigation? Also, Alexandra Chalupa was working for the @DNC and Clinton campaign but claimed to have never done op-ed research, oh and look Isakoff again #ManafortTrial
Here's the interview she's bragging about would certainly seem Chalupa was working directly with #Ukraine during the election. Odd as she still isn't listed with FARA. yahoo.com/news/paul-mana…
Why would Alexandra Chalupa say she never did op-ed research but yet her sister excitedly tells everyone on her BCC email that she deserves the credit? cnn.com/2017/07/14/pol…
This is the tweet from Trump that says "I didn't know but who cares if I did."
It violates campaign finance LAW to conspire with a foreign gov't in an election.
It is the reason Mike #Flynn, Trump's former #NSA, has been indicted.
This is NOT #FakeNews.
The trajectory of events: #TrumpTower meeting: 6/9 #Manafort--who was already advising Trump--takes over as campaign manager: 6/21
THAT SAME DAY: Guccifer 2.0 leaks #DNC docs
Manafort changes GOP platform: 7/11
During DNC, Trump calls on Russia to "find" Hillary's emails: 7/27
#Manafort's Virginia trial begins today—1st of 2 for Trump's Campaign Manager whose shady work for pro-Russia oligarchs in Ukraine were well known. Mueller team will tell this story thru 18 counts of financial crimes. They'll likely also establish debt/cash flow problems by 2016.
#Manafort trial update: Federal judge approves jury of 6 men and 6 women to hear Special Counsel Mueller’s case. The panel of jurors deciding fmr Trump campaign mgr’s fate was plucked from Fairfax County, a part of Virginia that voted heavily against Trump abcn.ws/2AqQ9i9
#Manafort Trial: Mueller Team Opening Statement Paints Manafort as "shrewd liar," rich cheat & thief who acted above the law. Mind-blowing resemblance betw Manafort & disgraced patron Yanukovych, who also happens to be on trial now—for treason in Ukraine. cnn.com/2018/07/31/pol…
In #Helsinki, #Putin stated directly that he worked to elect Trump. His intent was to stop #HillaryClinton. He tried to effectuate that during the primary by targeting Sanders supporters. Putin could not sway non-white voters despite his broad disinformation campaign against HRC.
But even though #Putin was unable to win the primary, he WAS able to plant the seeds of disinformation quite strongly. That included the parroting of #HillaryClinton being "corrupt," which Sanders and Trump had hammered (without evidence) repeatedly. (Details are in the report.)
Furthermore why didn’t Endeavor group disclose communication with #MarkWarner in their FARA filings that’s against the law. He used to report, look here’s him disclosing a meeting with #McFaul talk about full circle. #RussianCollusion
The British, & @lukeharding1968 in particular, are apparently more stupid than I thought. Looks like they’re intent on burning more @FBI sources. Hey @MarkWarner, please tell us exactly how @DeripaskaOleg obtained his temporary US visas. Tell us what you told #Waldman.
… while you’re at it, @MarkWarner, you should also really elaborate on what you know about contacts between #Waldman & #DanielJones. Is Mr. Jones continuing, at your urging & w/ a major donor’s backing, the defamatory work started by #Steele & #Simpson?
