The Propaganda War With Putin

If it had not already been apparent, the net effect of the DNC email hack has
been to kick open the door to a deep American antagonism towards Russian President
Vladimir Putin.

In what has become an old fashioned American pile-on, President Barack Obama,
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party and what seems
the entire political establishment as well as the MSM, have united to undermine
Putin as if to prime the American public for war with Russia.

War is, after all, more successful when the people have been thoroughly programmed.
For instance, for a war-weary American public “we are bombing civilians out
of a humanitarian necessity” may work well. If necessary, a little hysteria
wouldn’t hurt but most of all, a necessary requirement is to efficiently tutor
the public consciousness to despise the adversary. In this case, Clinton has
identified Putin as the adversary and that he is one evil reincarnation of Adolf

Among media outlets, Politico, once considered a “liberal” magazine ran “Inside’s
Putin’s Information War”
whose author has found a lucrative book deal on
the subject and yes, this is the same Politico that requested DNC permission

Perhaps the AP presumed to rouse the American public in defense of Hillary Clinton.

The first paragraph began with the admission that Clinton’s entire acceptance
speech had been broadcast live on nationwide television in Russia. If anyone
yearns for the day when a Putin speech will be broadcast across American television,
forgetaboutit. A good guess is that the intellectually-lazy American public
including many liberals who have forgotten how to think, would not make the
effort to inform themselves of world events.

Thereafter, the AP article followed with a series of assertions that dazzled
the reader with its irony such as:

Viewers were told that Clinton sees Russia as an enemy and cannot be trusted
and “the Democratic convention was portrayed as proof that American democracy
is a sham
.” The story added that Channel One introduced Clinton “as
a politician who puts herself above the law, who is ready to win at any cost
and who is ready to change her principles…
