BREAKING.💥💥💥 #MarkJudge's publication at a Russian Orthodox website sponsored by the Russian government and managed by a professional propagandist working for the administration of the Russian president. Article + thread 👇…
1. On December 16, 2016, a Russian Orthodox website Pravmir published #MarkJudge ’s article, linking the translation to the original to the Catholic News Service website.
2. Pravmir is registered as a non-commercial structure. Among the federal government partners listed on the website are the Ministry of Culture, Federal Administration of Music and Festival Programs and the Russian Fund of Culture.
3. Vladimir Medinsky, Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation is the head of the Board of Trustees. According to Pravmir’s chief editor Anna Danilova, the Board of Trustees covers about 50% (60%, according to her Medusa interview ) of the website operational costs.
4. Medinsky is known to recruit “an army of bloggers” with the help of Artyom Klushin, nicknamed “bot master” and known for his trolling, currently an executive secretary of the public council Rosmolodezh of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs.
5. Klyushin is also a close friend of Konstantin Rykov (aka Akitilop,) a man who claimed to have worked with Russian hackers, WikiLeaks and Cambridge Analytica and attended Trump’s speech at the Coalition for the Faith and Freedom conference of Iowa in September 2015.
6. Klyushin and his ex-wife Yulia Alferova met Trump several times since 2013, in Russia and the US. In June 2013, when Trump held a private dinner with the Agalarovs in Las Vegas to finalize the details for the Miss Universe in Moscow, Julia Alferov Artem Klyushin were present.
7. Alexandra Danilova, the chief editor of Pravmir and a senior lecturer of the philological faculty of Moscow State University (MGU), is also a professor of the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of the Russian Federation.
8. Danilova has an advanced degree & 20 yrs of experience in linguistic manipulation and influence during military campaigns, English language, mass media &psycholinguistics. Her thesis was titled Methods of Linguistic Influence on the Public Consciousness.
9. Danilova authored a number of articles on the collective mind manipulation, such as Language Manipulation in the Media as a Way of Destroying the Traditional Value System...
10. ... and The World’s Linguistic Layout and The Linguistic Aspect of Designing the Perception of Historical Events in the US media at the End of the 20th Century and the Beginning of the 21st Century.
11. In 2009, Danilova published Manipulation through the Word, a book on weaponizing language during military campaigns in the Western mass media, offering a detailed analysis of the methods of media influence on the mass consciousness and event perception engineering.
12. In 2016, the government of the Russian Federation awarded the chief editor Anna Danilova for achievements in the mass media industry.
13. Danilova has at least ten years of work connection and reportedly personal friendship with other Russian Orthodox functionaries, officials and ideologists, including Dugin. More on Dugin here:…
14. Ten days before Mark Judge’s debut in the Russian press, on December 6, 2016, Charles “Chuck” Johnson, a known alt-right figure, published a different Mark Judge’s article describing and questioning a frat party gang rape in graphic detail. More here:
15. Charles “Chuck” Johnson pushed “for various political appointees to serve under Donald Trump, according to multiple sources close to the President-elect’s transition team.”…
16. According to the LA Times, Johnson gave Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, the 14-term California congressman, a $5,400 campaign contribution in the form of bitcoin, the maximum amount allowed by law, weeks after he helped arrange a meeting between Rohravacher and Assange.
17. Johnson is close or knows most alt-right and conservative personalities, including Richard Spenser, the Mercers, McInnes, Cernovich, Yiannopoulos, “Baked Alaska,” and more,…
18. More ties on all ends in the article.…
19. The EU and US governments have not come up with a strategy to confront the Kremlin’s asymmetric assault on the West. It would be contra-intuitive to expect the Trump administration propelled to power by the Kremlin campaign to recognize or confront this effort.
20. The people need to accept the fact that this government will not undermine itself but, on the contrary, will take every measure to protect its position in power.
21. Kavanaugh’s confirmation is one such measure and will present a grave danger to democracy. In my recent article, I have explained the mechanism of “espirit de corps” or “mutual responsibility,” one of the defining features of a mafia state...
22. installing loyal people in key positions and creating a network of support.Trump is following this pattern by nominating Kavanaugh, Benczkowski, and other key positions in DOJ and national security agencies.
24. Added: from @dcpoll A concise and clear timeline on Bannon, Cambridge Analytica, and Trump's campaign, including the meeting in Vegas where Klyushin was present. This is an information war.…
