Abuses at the Bar of Public Reason Thomas Jefferson 1801

Abuses at the Bar of Public Reason

Thomas Jefferson 1801


“The diffusion of information and the arraignment of all abuses at the bar of public reason, I deem [one of] the essential principles of our government”
Thomas Jefferson 1801

There are many ABUSES AT THE BAR OF PUBLIC REASON, sometimes its because they are trying to persuade you of things that are not true or to program you with incorrect thinking so you are easier to manipulate in the future. (Ideological subversion)

And sometimes it strikes at and seeks to destroy very core principles of our democracy

This is from a recent ad in Florida:

I love Kelsey Grammer but:

If you look closely you will see that this ad falsely suggests that constitutional rights are just for criminals by saying we need equal rights for crime victims.

The truth is everybody always had equal rights.  Why not just say:  Crime Victims Need New and Better Rights?

The criminal defendants rights apply to everyone. They are all of our rights, and protect all of us, all the time, because we are Americans and protected by the Constitution of the United States

The ad falsely suggests that Constitutional Rights are just for criminals and again strikes deep to destroy core concepts of our constitutional rights.


Ideological subversion

How about this example:

Consider this Twisted Reasoning:

Tuckers imaginary “troubling reality”,  is trying to lead you to conclude that  E Pluribus Unum   “one out of many”,   should shun diversity as part of its strength.  Sounds kinda racist but more importantly It strikes at the heart of one of our most important  values:

We are the United States.               We are “one out of many”           Its on the money!



The above page seems to be filled false reasoning, racism,and efforts to misinform and damage the basic core values of our Democracy.  It certainly appears to be exactly the kind of propaganda That Vladimir Putin would want to bombard us with to Subvert our Democracy.

It appears consistent with Bezmanovs (see below) discussion of a  large portion of Russia’s spy budget going to a slow process we call ideological subversion and (active measures).


STEVE SCHMIDT: The large issue here is the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, across all of the West are attacking democracies and attacking the idea of democracy.

…we don’t talk as much as we should…about America as an idea.

The Russian attack is on the idea of liberty, of freedom.

He is undermining the notion of the capacity of the American people for self-governance. He’s attacking our institutions.


The lubricants of a Democratic system are faith, trust, and belief.

And Vladimir Putin is attacking that.

How about alternative facts? Remember that one?

Alternative facts:
Alternative Facts Urban Dictionary
There is no such thing as “Alternative Facts”.
They’re fucking lies, damn.

1. When you know what you’re saying is bullshit but you’re going to present it as your version of reality anyways even if it is contrary to first hand accounts, photographic evidence, reputable reporting sources, and verifiable numbers given by things such as ticket sales or public transportation data

2. An attempt to gaslight the population in an effort to control the media and create propoganda by substituting something beneficial to the regime instead of reporting verifiable truths that paint a negative light on a subject.

“In an interview on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ host Chuck Todd pressed Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway about why the White House on Saturday had sent Spicer to the briefing podium for the first time to claim that ‘this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.’
‘You’re saying it’s a falsehood. And they’re giving — Sean Spicer, our press secretary — gave alternative facts,’ she said.
Todd responded: ‘Alternative facts aren’t facts, they are falsehoods.’ “
A bald face lie usually told by someone who is either delusional or a psychopathic liar.
Trump’s Press Secretary often cites alternative facts during press conferences.






Truth is not Truth    Rudi Guilani

It’s somebody’s version of the truth,.

Here Giuliani tries to convince you that what actually happened does not exist or cannot be determined because their are two different perceptions / stories  of what actually happened.    WRONG!   The reality of what actuality happened remains, regardless of what one or more people say about it later.



New Meme Rudi Giulani “Truth isn’t truth”



Facts, Truths, Beliefs, Opinions, and “Alternative Facts” | Psychology …

“Truths” and opinions change, facts don’t because they’re based on reality.

In this time of “alternative facts,” it’s helpful to understand that a “fact” is a fact precisely because the “alternatives” have been disproven!    Mar 25, 2017

Remember this one?


Maybe you would change your mind if your bank stole money from your account!

Giuliani uses this one to make up a BS excuse to pardon convicted Felon Paul Manafort who is currently serving time in Prison.   Crime is Crime even if committed by rich people.

White collar crime is not crime:  WRONG

Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani Says White-Collar Crime Isn’t Really Crime as He Defends Paul Manafort

Just ask Manafort and thousands of others who are in Jail for committing white collar and other crimes.




The principle is actually called the “presumption of innocence” (it’s a constitutional right to get you a fail trial)

What happened to “innocent until being proven guilty” ?    Nothing except it is being used in a deception campaign to convince you that Kavanaugh must be innocent because he is innocent until proven guilty.


It is being inaccurately equated to the “Presumption of Innocence” granted in our judicial system.  It does not mean that you are actually innocent. It does not mean you as a person should ignore reality.  It does mean that the Jury in a trial, should consider you innocent until proven guilty.


If you were actually “Innocent until proven guilty”, Judges would have release terrorists, murderers rapists and killers on their own recognizance without having to post bond. Why?  because they are innocent until proven guilty.  It makes no sense.  Propagandists want you to misunderstand the meaning, to convince you that Kavanaugh is innocent


False Premises in Logic are an abuse at the “Bar of Public Reason (as Thomas Jefferson might put it)

As it turns out:

Lies and Abuses at the Bar of Public Reason are part of a carefully orchestrated program designed to subvert democracy and manipulate the American electorate into supporting an administration that would otherwise never be able to pass its agenda.


Lies and Abuses at the Bar of Public Reason are part of a slow process we call ideological subversion and (active measures). (See Bezmanov below)




A program willing to say or do anything to win, using the most sophisticated computer programs and psycho metrics, tabulating heretofore unavailable date on voters (to push their buttons)  to manipulate attitude and behavior.  Thank you Rupert Murdoch, Robert Mercer, Steve Bannon, Cambridge Analytica, Vladimir Putin, the Hunts, Donald Trump and his gang of Political Operatives and their psychological warfare to subvert American Democracy often using the slow process we call ideological subversion.

a suppression of the press could not more completely deprive the nation of its benefits, than is done by its abandoned prostitution to falsehood.

Thomas Jefferson 1807

liberty, truth, probity, honor, are declared to be the four cardinal principles of society.

Thomas Jefferson 1816

No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions.

Thomas Jefferson 1804

Lies and abuses in reason appear to be at the heart of Fox/Rupert Murdock, Putin, Bannon, Mercer, Trump,  communication efforts.


They often mimic each other but some of the messaging aligns clearly and often exclusively with Putins interests.  It often strikes at core principles of our society.


Bannon had the advantage of a deep knowledge of history including how people and governments have been subverted manipulated and used by fascists and others through out history. He was aware of how racism hate fear and war could be used to obtain power. He was subsequently granted some of the highest security clearance and set off into the world to do his deeds.


Over the years Trump developed a skill set  as a showman.  Its not clear how much was programmed by others. His skill set seems quite advanced, perhaps too advanced to result merely from his own self enlightenment

Bannon, Mercers,  Cambridge Analyitica, and Trump use psycho metrics, for behavioral and attitude change.  They also have to “maximize the volume” to get the biggest effect from racism, hate, fear and other issues that drive attitude and behavioral change

This model to win the election required a special skill set.

Bannon needed a savey skilled “show man” who could easily lie, change stories, contradict himself, insult others bully others, put on a show take outrageous positions all without showing embarrassment. (is that what the makeup is for….to hide blushing? ) Trump was perfect unrestrained by the honesty and morality which limits most people).    The Great Liar-Showman.

liberty, truth, probity, honor, are declared to be the four cardinal principles of society. Thomas Jefferson 1816

But blatant obvious lies and hypocrisy were not tolerated among our leaders and  the problem was how to acclimate US Voters to such horrible dishonesty so it could be weaponized.

Lying a little at a time was untenable because voters would have time to examine each lie and call it out.  This would not allow the strategy of lying to each segment to work.


The answer :   “SHOCK LIES”

Hitler had: A big lie (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously”.                 read at in site link


Crowd Size:

A giant obvious lie without a motive, gets you wondering, why he said and did that?  You are confused and left to speculation;  just a compulsive liar?, Mental problem? Perception problem?, you probably did not think it was carefully thought out psychological warfare strategy. …and that was their plan.


The SHOCK part of the big obviously false lie works much like adrenaline  in your body.  The first time it really gets you going and you body has to recover before it produces the same amount of adrenaline.  Repeated shocks may raise adrenaline but not as much as the first time .  continuous exposure, and it is no longer shocking.  You become inoculated kinda like a flu shot, your body develops immunity and it does not make you sick


The Crowd Size lie was done immediately in a manner everyone could see and would gets lots of play time.  Since there was no apparent reason your mind searches but finds only things like mental issues, perception issues, outright compulsive lies.

Looking back It appears it was planned that way to distract you from seeing that it is part of a larger effort effort of psychological warfare to inoculate you against future lies and deceptions.


The shocking lie and  planned response to the blow back was brilliantly executed by the White House Press Office, Kelly Ann Conway, and Trumps PSYOP media Fox News, Breitbart, and other conservative platforms.


That’s when Kelly Ann came out with her infamous “Alternate Facts”  Another twisted way to distort the truth by Abuse at the Bar of Public Reason.


The Adrenaline Shock concept is also used in many Trump tactics if you look you can see it in other outrageous things he says and does…It also often has other beneficial effects for Trump by rallying certain parts of his base and causing confusion to hide truth.

Calling the Media Fake News so he can deflect when his lies are called out.



“Russia employs sophisticated strategies deliberately designed to achieve objectives while falling below the target state’s threshold for a military response,” he said, listing “infiltrating social media, spreading propaganda, weaponizing information, and using other forms of subversion and espionage.”


“For too long, some nations have looked the other way in the face of these threats,” he also said. “Russia brazenly and implausibly denies its actions and we have failed to impose sufficient costs. The Kremlin’s confidence is growing as its agents conduct their sustained campaigns to undermine our confidence in ourselves and in one another.”

KGB Officer Explains Russian/NWO Agenda For “Amerika”
Wed Jun 3, 2009 13:55
Synopsis: G. Edward Griffin interviews Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov on the 4 step program of demoralization, destabilization, crisis, and normalization used by the KGB to subvert nations. This interview was conducted in 1985 but has only recently been re-highlighted. Yuri explains why people cannot recognize truth when presented to them and why America has difficulty resisting a Socialist agenda.
Transcript of interview
Selected portions:
Ideological subversion is the process which is [a] legitimate, old word, and open. You can see it with your own eyes. All American mass media has to do is to “unplug bananas” from their ears, open up their eyes, and they can see it.
…in reality the main emphasis of the KGB [ ]…According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, [ ] about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare.
What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.
Site Comment:  Fake news, misinformation, disinformation, fox news etc.
When you  cannot separate truth from fiction you are unable to draw conclusions with conviction and you are not sure what you know
Most of the activity of the department [KGB] was to compile huge amount / volume of information, on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion.
(site comment: Religious Leaders, Rupert Murdock Roger Ailes, and many others )
Publishers, editors, journalists,
uh actors, educationalists, professors of political science.
Members of   (site comment:  House of Rep, Senate )
parliament, representatives of business circles. Most of these people were divided roughly into two groups: those who would tow the Soviet foreign policy, they would be promoted to positions of power through media and public manipulation; [and] those who refuse the Soviet influence in their own country would be character assassinated OR executed physically, come Revolution

Same way as in a small town of Hua in South Vietnam; several thousands of Vietnamese were executed in one night when the city was captured by [the] Viet Cong for only two days; and American CIA could never figure out – how could [the communists] possibly know each Individual, where he lives, where to get him; and [in order that they] would be arrested in one night basically in four hours before dawn, put on a van, driven out of the city limits and shot.


The answer is very simple. Long before communists occupy the city, there was extensive network of informers; local Vietnamese citizens who knew absolutely everything about people who are instrumental in public opinion – including Barbers and Taxi Drivers. Everyone who was sympathetic to United States was executed. Same thing was done under the guidance of the Soviet Embassy in Hanoi, and same thing I was doing in New Delhi. To my horror, I discovered that in the files were people who were doomed to execution. There were names of pro-Soviet Journalists, with whom I was personally friendly.

…the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of Soviet or Communist or Socialist or whatever system; when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point, “never bother with leftists, forget about these political prostitutes – aim higher” this was my instruction. Try to get into, uh, large circulation, established conservative media.



Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov continued:
…they serve purpose only [up] to the stage of destabilization of a nation. When the job is completed, they are not needed anymore. They know too much. Some of them, [] get disillusioned – when they see that Marxist-Leninist come to power. Obviously they get offended;
…they think that THEY will come to power. That will never happen, of course; they will be lined up against the wall and shot.
The result? The result you can see — most of the people who graduated in the 60’s, dropouts or half-baked intellectuals, are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and educational systems. You are stuck with them. You can’t get rid of to them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern [alluding to Pavlov]. You can not change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still can not change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words [for] these people the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible

And yet these people who have been programmed and as you say [are] in place and who are favorable to an opening with the Soviet concept [meaning NEW WORLD ORDER]- these are the very people who would be marked for extermination in this country?

Most of them, yes. Simply because the psychological shock when they will see in [the] future what the beautiful society of EQUALITY and social justice means in practice, obviously they will revolt. They will be very unhappy [and] frustrated people, and Marxist Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously they will join the [ranks] of dissenters; dissidents. Unlike the present [1984] United States there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America. [Now] you can get popular like Daniel Ellsberg and filthy rich like Jane Fonda for being a dissident [and] for criticizing your Pentagon. In [the] future these people will simply be [he makes a squishy noise] squashed like cockroaches for criticizing the government. Nobody is going to pay them nothing for their beautiful [and] noble ideas of EQUALITY. This they don’t understand and it will be the greatest shock for them, of course.

The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually, it’s over fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such tremendous success.
Putin hails the fall of United States as a moral leader around the globe in annual speech    Oct 18 2018

Russian President Vladimir Putin used his annual address to hail the end of the United States’ influence on the world.  According to a write-up from the Financial Times, Putin told his country “luckily this monopoly is disappearing. It’s almost done.”


Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov continued:
Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards.

FROM THE WEEKLEY STANDARD:  Conservative support for an American foreign policy that seeks to encourage and defend democratic change in other countries—once a mainstay within the GOP—is now up for debate.

“Demoskepticism” does not yet prevail among Republicans in Congress, nor among neoconservatives. But it is a growing phenomenon among conservative writers and this shift is a sign that the Trump presidency is reshaping foreign policy thinking on the right.


Some conservatives now dismiss policies that are infused with democratic values. Chris Buskirk, the publisher and editor of American Greatness, condemns pro-democracy foreign policy as a reflection of American “moral imperialism.” Others have identified certain antid-emocratic rulers as conservative kindred spirits—excusing their acts of repression, praising their leadership qualities, even fawning over their roughshod tactics.


At the top of this list of favored despots is Vladimir Putin. Some praise him as a kind of man’s man among world leaders. Matt Drudge hailed Putin as the “leader of the free world.” Rudy Giuliani described Putin as someone who “makes a decision and he executes it, quickly. And then everybody reacts. That’s what you call a leader.”


Another group, consisting primarily of Christian social conservatives, has lauded Putin for his close ties to the Russian Orthodox Church, his denunciation of a morally corrupt Europe, and his crackdown on Russian LGBT activists. In response to Russia’s adoption of a law banning “gay propaganda,” Franklin Graham hailed Putin for protecting “his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda.”


American conservatives are not Putin’s only admirers in the world’s leading democracies. He is widely revered by European populists and radicals on both ends of the political spectrum, who cheer his hostility toward the European Union and his anti-Americanism.


But for conservatives in this country, an embrace of Putin means setting aside basic principles, including representative government, freedom of speech, equality before the law, and the proposition that history should be written by historians, not the state. None of these fundamental tenets of democracy is respected in Putin’s Russia.


Domestic abuses during his tenure have run the gamut, encompassing the assassination of political opponents and journalists, rigged elections, persecution of religious minorities, show trials in kangaroo courts, the rehabilitation of Joseph Stalin in state propaganda, and the arbitrary seizure of billions of dollars in assets from private businesses as part of a kleptocracy. (It’s fun to contemplate how Trump-supporters can make excuses for Putin while simultaneously decrying the the supposedly-outlaw Mueller investigation.)


On the global stage, Putin’s record is similarly unambiguous. He has invaded foreign countries to grab their territory, and provided critical military and diplomatic support for some of the world’s most odious regimes. Admiration of the Russian leader requires American conservatives to ignore the many instances in which his government has undermined American interests, menaced the United States’ democratic allies, and interfered in the workings of American democracy.


Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov continued:         As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. Even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him the concentration camps…he will refuse to believe it…. until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When the military boot crashes – then he will understand. But not before that. That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.

The next stage is destabilization….this time, subverter does not care about your ideas and the patterns of your consumption. Whether you eat junk food and get fat and flabby doesn’t matter any more. It only takes 2 to 5 years to destabilize a nation.

Putin: I wanted Trump to win the election 07/16/2018

Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov continued:
And you can see it quite clearly that in some… sensitive areas such as defense and [the] economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic. I could never believe it 14 years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process will go that fast.

Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov continued:


The next stage of course is crisis, which may take only up to 6 weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis. You can see it in Central America now; and after crisis, with the violent change of power structure and economy, you have the period of so called “normalization” [which] it may last indefinitely.

Normalization is a cynical expression, borrower from Soviet Propaganda. When the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968, comrade Brezhnev said “Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized”.


This is what will happen in [the] United States if you allow all the shmucks to bring the country to crisis.

Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov continued:

To promise people all kinds of goodies,

Alleged Russian Spy Was Working to Infiltrate Religious Right As Well As Gun Groups JULY 18 2018 


Her apparent associate (or perhaps dupe) in her intelligence operations was U.S. “political operative” Paul Erickson, who was 30 years older than Butina but reportedly lived with her. He’s had his own colorful pre-espionage career, which included Pat Buchanan’s 1992 presidential campaign and a stint as “media advisor” to John Wayne Bobbitt, the man whose wife Lorena famously dis-membered him. The New York Daily News helpfully reports that Erickson was the genius behind Bobbitt’s “international ‘Love Hurts’ tour during which they sold t-shirts and autographed steak knives.”

Butina also took advantage of Erickson’s links with the Christian right, as Slate’s Ruth Graham reports, though Torshin had his own relationships in that universe, having attended multiple National Prayer Breakfasts.

In 2016, according to a timeline compiled by the Washington Post, Butina emailed a Prayer Breakfast organizer to suggest that Putin might attend the following year. That didn’t happen, but she and Torshin attended. “A new relationship between two countries always begins better when it begins in faith,” Butina emailed an organizer afterward, thanking him for a gift and for the “very private meeting” after the breakfast. Butina was also part of a group that attempted to secure a meeting with the Trump campaign in May 2016 to talk about the persecution of Christians around the world, a topic of great interest to many American evangelicals.

Earlier, in 2015, Butina and Erickson also appeared on the radio show of conservative evangelical superstar (and big-time Trump promoter) Eric Metaxas to discuss gun rights and religious freedom — topics that are strangely congruent in the conservative Christian circles in which all these birds flew.

The affection with which many Christian right figures hold Russia and specifically the gay-bashing Putin is hardly a secret, as I noted in 2016:

[Putin’s evangelical fan club] includes some pretty big names, like conservative Evangelical leader Franklin Graham, National Organization for Marriage leader Brian Brown, and American Family Association spokesperson Bryan Fischer. In almost every case it has been his distinctive combination of homophobia and Islamophobia that has made Putin one of the Christian right’s favorite international figures. The cultural conservative preference for authoritarian Christian Slavs who are fighting Muslims has … carried over from the Serbs to their traditional sponsors in Moscow, and most especially to the former KGB officer who has revived Russia’s pre-communist tradition of militantly traditionalist Christianity.

So there is a U.S. religious constituency that very self-consciously supports Trump’s apparent interest in forming a new world order based on a Washington-Moscow axis, outflanking the decadent, secular, tolerant globalists of Western Europe.


December 21, 2015 by Mystic Post


It seems to many international observers that Putin is one step ahead of the American administration and are not sure what to make of Vladimir’s grand ambitions. However, if one listens closely to Mr. Putin certain clues reveal themselves and Putin’s ambitions may have more to do with culture wars than any kind of land grab or empire building.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says US dominance is ending after mistakes ‘typical of an empire’

By Patrick Reevell

MOSCOW — Oct 19, 2018

Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that America’s global dominance is coming to an end, with the U.S. itself accelerating that process with a string of mistakes “typical of an empire.”


Russia: NATO should be ‘wise enough’ to avoid war





Ex-KGB Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov continued:

Never mind [nothing to see here, move along], he will create false illusions that the situation is under control. Situation is NOT under control. Situation is disgustingly out of control.


Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system train another generation of people who think they are living at the peacetime. False.


United States is in a state of war; undeclared, total war against the basic principles and foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course – it’s the system. However, ridiculous it may sound, [it is] the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy.


Whether I scare some people or not, I don’t give a hoot. If you’re not scared by now, nothing can scare you. You don’t have to be paranoid about it. What actually happens now; that unlike myself, you have literally several years to live on unless United States wake up. The time bomb is ticking. With every second the disaster is coming closer. Unlike myself, you will have nowhere to defect to, unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. This is it, this is the last country with freedom and possibility.

Okay, so what do we do? What is your recommendation to the American people?

Well, the immediate thing that comes to mind is, of course, there must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of REAL patriotism, number one. Number two, to explain [to] them the real danger of socialist, communist, welfare state, Big Brother government. If people fail to grasp the impending danger; nothing ever will help the United States. You may kiss goodbye your freedoms, including [sending] homosexuals to prison inmate. All this freedom will vanish in 5 seconds – including your precious lives.


The moment at least part of [the] United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to FORCE their government, and I’m not talking about sending letters, signing petitions, and all this beautiful, noble activity, I’m talking about FORCING [the] United States government to stop aiding Communism….

‘A very different world’ – inside the Czech spying operation on Trump

The Guardian Mon 29 Oct 2018

Exclusive: files reveal Trump was the target of an extensive spying operation in the late 1980s by the country’s intelligence service, with ‘friends’ from the KGB


The trio walked into the gleaming lobby and took the lift up to the executive floor. Their meeting was with Donald J Trump. For the men from behind the Iron Curtain, Trump was a celebrity capitalist. He was also, we now know, the target of an extensive spying operation conducted by Czechoslovakia’s Státní bezpečnost (StB) intelligence service – together with “friends” from the KGB.


The StB had been interested in Trump since 1977, when he married a Czechoslovakian-born woman, Ivana Zelníčková. News of the wedding reached the StB bureau in Zlín, the town in Moravia where Ivana grew up and where her parents lived. Ivana’s father, Miloš, regularly gave the StB information on his daughter’s visits from the US and his son-in-law’s burgeoning career.

Czechoslovakia ramped up spying on Trump in late 1980s, seeking US intel

Exclusive: aided by Ivana Trump’s father, intelligence service with KGB ties targeted high-level government information, files show

October 29 2018 The Guardian

The communist intelligence service in Prague stepped up its spying campaign against Donald Trump in the late 1980s, targeting him to gain information about the “upper echelons of the US government”, archive files and testimony from former cold war spies reveal.

Czechoslovakia’s Státní bezpečnost (StB) carried out a long-term spying mission against Trump following his marriage in 1977 to his first wife, Ivana Zelníčková. The operation was run out of Zlín, the provincial town in south-west Czechoslovakia where Zelníčková was born and grew up.


Ivana’s father, Miloš Zelníček, gave regular information to the local StB office about his daughter’s visits from the US and on his celebrity son-in-law’s career in New York. Zelníček was classified as a “conspiratorial” informer. His relationship with the StB lasted until the end of the communist regime.


New archive records obtained by the Guardian and the Czech magazine Respekt show the StB’s growing interest in Trump after the 1988 US presidential election, won by George HW Bush. The StB’s first directorate responsible for foreign espionage sought to “deepen” its Trump-related activity.


A former StB official, Vlastimil Daněk – tracked down to the village of Zadní Arnoštov, where he lives in retirement – confirmed the Trump operation. Addressing the matter publicly for the first time, he said: “Trump was of course a very interesting person for us. He was a businessman, he had a lot of contacts, even in US politics.


“We were focusing on him, we knew he was influential. We had information that he wanted to be president in future.”

White house Counsel Ty Cobb: “I don’t think it’s a witch hunt.”


Donald Trump borrows from the old tricks of fascism

The governing principle of the Trump administration is total irresponsibility, a claim of innocence from a position of power, something which happens to be an old fascist trick. As we see in the president’s reactions to American rightwing terrorism, he will always claim victimhood for himself and shift blame to the actual victims. As we see in the motivations of the terrorists themselves, and in the long history of fascism, this maneuver can lead to murder.

The Nazis claimed a monopoly on victimhood. Mein Kampf includes a lengthy pout about how Jews and other non-Germans made Hitler’s life as a young man in the Habsburg monarchy difficult. After stormtroopers attacked others in Germany in the early 1930s, they made a great fuss if one of their own was injured. The Horst Wessel Song, recalling a single Nazi who was killed, was on the lips of Germans who killed millions of people. The second world war was for the Nazis’ self-defense against “global Jewry”.

Two misinformation campaigns spent years sowing discord in US and elsewhere Oct 17 2018

How Brett Kavanaugh Made Russian Election Interference Easier and Robert Mueller’s Job Harder
The Supreme Court nominee gutted part of a law that prevented foreign influence in US elections.

In February, special counsel Robert Mueller handed down a stunning indictment against 13 Russians and three Russian companies for interfering in the 2016 election. The 37-page document laid out an expansive and well-financed influence operation to sow discord in the election and help elect Donald Trump. It included charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud, and aggravated identity theft.


To the surprise of many, there were no election-related charges. The reason is almost certainly a 2011 ruling by Brett Kavanaugh.


From the start, Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court has generated concern that the DC Circuit Court of Appeals judge, who has expansive views of presidential power, immunity, and secrecy, will protect Trump from the Russia probe if confirmed to the nation’s highest court. But little attention has been paid to a decision he wrote that already paved the way for foreign election interference and is making Mueller’s job harder—a decision that some election law experts view as sloppy and politically motivated.


Cambridge Analytica and the creation of right wing media

Their main tactic in recent electoral campaigns in Africa, America and Europe was to heighten fears of Islam with fake campaigns “leveraging a fake enemy” and hyping up problems that didn’t exist or grossly exaggerating existing concerns with propaganda and scare tactics. They steal thousands of data points, personal messages and interactions and apply their military psychological warfare tactics and A.I. algorithms to determine what makes you tick and more importantly what makes you angry. They then personalise their approach to specific targets and bombard them with stories that would guarantee to press their buttons. They bombard you with personalised advertising campaigns and sock puppet accounts that coerce you into a particular train of thought. They started using quizzes on social media to test the psychological effectiveness and marketing power of phrases such as “Drain the swamp”, “Build the wall” and “Deep State” as early as 2014 so that their candidate could utilise this branding and create a favourable image (whoever they might be – at this point is was Ted Cruz)


Psychometrics: The latest craze in tyranny

Cambridge Analytica did something new and revolutionary


Using psychographics they know more about you than you know about yourself.


They can understand you better than you understand yourself.


It understands your personality



They know what you respond to  what you respond not so well to… They know it all.

more dangerous than anything that came before on the web.


They go leaps and bounds in their understanding of human nature   while we the public understands very little.

If you look at all the BS stories, made up issues,emotional ploys and false reasoning coming out of right wing media it certainly appears to fit well into the hypothesis  of  Orchestrated Political and Psychological warfare.

Trump uses migrant caravan as weapon against Democrats Oct 19 2018

President Trump is using the migrant caravan as a weapon to bash the Democrats. “We are about law and order and borders and jobs and they are about allowing crime to enter our country with open borders,” Mr. Trump said Friday.

He even blamed the Democrats for the caravan — while offering no evidence.

Black said she thought Mr. Trump was talking about the caravan to get people to the polls.

“We gotta stop them before they get here,” she said about the caravan. “We can’t even take care of our own people.”

The president appears to agree, promising to deploy the military if the caravan makes it to the U.S. border. “And we’re gonna have the military stationed,” Mr. Trump said. “They’re not coming into this country. They might as well turn back.”
