EU Parliament Creates ‘Anti-Fake News Unit’ To Deal With Misinformation

After years of ‘fake news attacks’ across Europe—EU responds:

The European Parliament has created an anti-fake news unit to deal with misinformation, especially in light of the upcoming 2019 European elections. This comes as some MEPs called for more efforts against “Russian propaganda” at a debate in Strasbourg.

The EU has been stepping up its campaign to counter disinformation and fake news, recently earmarking €1 million a year from the EU budget for its specialist anti-propaganda unit set up by the Commission in 2015.

Germany’s ARD (The Wolrd’s Largest Public Broadcaster) – Watch State Propaganda Promoting #Islam: “There Is No God But Allah” – #Islamization, #SocialEngineering

Wikipedia:

ARD (full name: Arbeitsgemeinschaft der öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunkanstalten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland – Consortium of public broadcasters in Germany) is a joint organisation of Germany’s regional public-service broadcasters. It was founded in 1950 in West Germany to represent the common interests of the new, decentralised, post-war broadcasting services – in particular the introduction of a joint television network.

The ARD is the world’s largest public broadcaster, with a budget of €6.9 billion[1] and 22,655 employees.[2] The budget comes primarily from the licence fees every household, every company and even every public institution like city governments are required to pay. For an ordinary household the fee is currently €17.50 per month. Households living on welfare do not have to pay the fee. The fees are not collected directly by the ARD, but by the Beitragsservice (formerly known as Gebühreneinzugszentrale GEZ), a common organization of the ARD member broadcasters, the second public TV broadcaster ZDF, and Deutschlandradio.

ADL Trying to Criminalize Free Speech & Thought

Philip Giraldi is a former CIA counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer and a columnist and television commentator. He is also the executive director of the Council for the National Interest.

ADL Trying to Criminalize Free Speech & Thought:

Freedom of speech is in a sad state these days. You can only exercise your First Amendment rights in certain restricted areas, and, if you hold conservative viewpoints, those areas are growing even smaller.

By Phillip Giraldi

Recent debates about “safe spaces” at universities and declarations of states of emergency to prevent alleged white supremacists from speaking are part of a much broader movement to manage the information that the American public should be allowed to access. In its most recent manifestations, an anonymous group produced a phony list of 200 websites that were guilty of serving up Russian propaganda, a George Soros-funded think tank identified thousands of individuals who are alleged to be “useful idiots” for Moscow, and Twitter announced that it is no longer taking ads paid for by two Russian media outlets, RT International and Sputnik.

Apparently, the exposure of dissident sites, the outing of dissident individuals, including myself, and the banning of a small number of ads will preserve American democracy and allow the truth tellers at The New York Times and MSNBC to inform us regarding what we need to know and not one iota more lest we draw some false conclusions.

Chris Hedges: The Silencing Of Dissent

The Silencing Of Dissent:

The ruling elites, who grasp that the reigning ideology of global corporate capitalism and imperial expansion no longer has moral or intellectual credibility, have mounted a campaign to shut down the platforms given to their critics. The attacks within this campaign include blacklisting, censorship and slandering dissidents as foreign agents for Russia and purveyors of “fake news.”

No dominant class can long retain control when the credibility of the ideas that justify its existence evaporates. It is forced, at that point, to resort to crude forms of coercion, intimidation and censorship. This ideological collapse in the United States has transformed those of us who attack the corporate state into a potent threat, not because we reach large numbers of people, and certainly not because we spread Russian propaganda, but because the elites no longer have a plausible counterargument.

Financial Times Editorial Seeks Restrictions On Free Speech To Stop False News “Propaganda War”

Financial Times Editorial Seeks Restrictions On Free Speech To Stop False News “Propaganda War”:

A pair of articles by the Financial Times offers quite the take on disinformation hypocrisy.

I suggest the Financial Times look into the mirror if it wants to understand where the problem is.

Worse yet, to stop the spread of fake news, the FT editorial board wants restrictions on freedom of speech.

This Video Brilliantly Illustrates How Fake and Scripted the Mainstream Media Is:

Hm.

Could this be why people are turning away from the mainstream media en masse? Because people are starting to realize just how scripted and fake everything they’re being told by these talking heads truly is?

These people have one job only: to shape and promote certain events while censoring others, telling you what the system wants you to know and believe about your world.

U.S. Senate Quietly Passes The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act”

“It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.”

Senate Quietly Passes The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act”:

While we wait to see if and when the Senate will pass (and president will sign) Bill  “H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017″, which was passed by the House at the end of November with an overwhelming majority and which seeks to crack down on websites suspected of conducting Russian propaganda and calling for the US government to “counter active measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in  coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly,” another, perhaps even more dangerous and limiting to civil rights and freedom of speech bill passed on December 8.

CIA “Concludes” Russia Meddled in US Election, Provides No Evidence

CIA “Concludes” Russia Meddled in US Election, Provides No Evidence:

“What we have instead are assertions, disseminated by anonymous people, completely unaccompanied by any evidence, let alone proof,” writes Glenn Greenwald.

The CIA on Friday leaked a memo to the Washington Post “concluding” that Russia meddled in the U.S. election to help President-elect Donald Trump win — but any evidence supporting that finding remains secret.

Anonymous sources told the Post that “the CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system.” They said intelligence agencies “identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.”
