The Barbwire has hit the international big time: I’m on Vladimir Putin’s mailing list.
I have been receiving e-mails from an outfit called Active Democracy from a street address in Moscow, Russian Federation.
Each transmission concludes “God Bless. Kind Regards, Active Democracy, The Era Of People Power – Empower Christianity not Satanic Judaism.”
Schicklgruber and Goebbels would applaud such masterful propaganda. Their latest blasts Trump’s FCC without blasting Trump. It takes advantage of everybody’s gripes against cable companies to make a case against “fake news media.”
Dec. 4 headline: “Gutting Net Neutrality – The Establishment is trying to control, categorize and commercialize internet access…
The latter two are already done deals, but you get the idea.
“You see only what they show you while all of your cash is drained away. You are enslaved to their system.” Vlad should know.
The message amplifies Trump’s constant fake news accusations against anything not praising his wonderfulness.
So how do I know this is pro-Trump propaganda? Try this from Nov. 25: “Establishment Media Agenda, Traps, and Objectives…I know that you are a media person yourself.” Damn, Vlad’s spies are good.
“The media was (sic) more fair and proportionate to your TV Show rather than it is to your Presidency.” Alas and alack, yes. He’s indeed my president.
“This is what you should note about the Establishment Media. When all media channels are [COMMIE ALERT!] collectively talking about a particular topic most of the time, it is an ‘agenda’…Why is a Presidential candidate or President being demonized so much? What wrong has he done? He has not hurt a single American life or American interest…The main objective of the agenda is to ‘terminate Trump’s Presidency’.”
The Anti-Defamation League says that the “anti-Semitic, conspiracy theory-oriented website Active-Democracy “ is registered in India and hosted on Houston, Texas, servers. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists them in DC. Might as well be near the White House where Putin is held in high regard.
Trump said he would create high-paying U.S. jobs. Looks like this is a sterling high-tech example.
So where’s my check?
KAP RULES! Colin Kaepernick does not merit becoming Time’s “Person of the Year.” The award was originally given to whomever most affected the world for good or evil. By pre-9/11 criteria, Stalin and Hitler made it. Time-Warner lost its cred in 2001 when it chickened out on evil with Osama bin Laden and gave it to New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Our madcap president has already said he doesn’t want it, so the former UNR quarterback should be a shoo-in. Go Kap!
RITCHIE RICH RULES. Ritchie West got only two years for being a major opioid drug pusher. Them with the gold makes the rules.
GOLDEN COFFINS. Remember the two recent worker deaths at the Marigold Mine in Humboldt County? The legit media never published the mine’s owner: The Nevada System of Higher Education on behalf of UNR. (Barbwire Pulitzer series 1996)
GOLDEN COFFEE CANS. Sparing every expense, The Barbwire predicted the Great Recession on May 29, 2005, more than two years upfront. So be forewarned: Convert to Marigold gold and bury your stash in a backyard coffee can, just like a grandma during the 1930s.
GOLDEN OLDIES. Washoe school board member Scott Kelley is under fire for possibly violating Nevada’s open meeting law by polling his colleagues before submitting a commentary to the Reno paper. He was apparently unaware of former University Regent Nancy Price’s precedent-setting supreme court win against late Sparks Regent Jim Eardley which made such shenanigans illegal. (Barbwire Pulitzer series 1996) She’s now a longtime Sparks resident.
ADIOS, COMPADRE. Almost a thousand attended last Friday’s memorial to Darryl Feemster at Sparks Christian Fellowship. Next step: Naming the Duncan-Traner community library in his honor. Stay tuned.
Happy High Holly Days to you and yours.
Be well. Raise hell. Esté bien. Haga infierno.
