Germany’s Merkel Now Calls For ‘Fake News’ To Stop But Won’t Stop Her Own Fake News

Taking a clue from the US media billionaire owners and people who are pretending to be liberals but are really fascists, now Germany, home of real big fascism in the past, takes up the censorship cudgel:  ‘Fake news’ threatens Germany’s election, too, says Merkel – The Washington Post as the powerful Bilderberg gangsters all join in trying to stop the Wheel of History and turn back time and control everything via propaganda machines set to delude people about what is really going on.

 

 In the wake of Donald Trump’s shock Nov. 8 electoral victory, attention fell on the extent to which voter opinions could have been shaped by an epidemic of “fake news” websites that masqueraded as legitimate media outlets. Their articles — invented fluff with sensationalist headlines — found the eyeballs of a huge number of (mostly right-wing) readers. Many fake stories proved more viral on social media than important articles from real sources.

 

Now, it seems the threat of fake news is stalking the democratic process elsewhere. Germany will hold national elections at some point next year, with a far-right party poised to make considerable gains on the back of populist fears about immigration and Islam.

 

The charged atmosphere of the moment prompted German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who represents a center-right political party, to caution against alarmist hysteria generated via social media.

 

“Something has changed — as globalization has marched on, [political] debate is taking place in a completely new media environment. Opinions aren’t formed the way they were 25 years ago,” she said Wednesday while addressing Germany’s Bundestag, or parliament. “Today we have fake sites, bots, trolls — things that regenerate themselves, reinforcing opinions with certain algorithms, and we have to learn to deal with them.”

 

 

OMG.  She actually talks about ‘globalization’ one day after the NYT and WP and others ruling elites in the US yapped about how ‘globalization’ isn’t happening, it is ‘globalism’ which is identical but to them, not the same thing.  Well, Merkel is warning that we are fighting her globalization efforts and we are evil for doing this and the ‘new media’ stuff is the rest of us humans who are literate, talking back and examining the news and various assumptions.

 

Looks like the readers at the WP are not fooled by this editorial story that is seeking to squelch all attempts at forcing the US media giants to report the real news but then, many liberals think real news is crummy so they don’t want any, they want to believe only bad things are happening to ‘those nasty people down south’ and such, not in NYC or LA.  Nope.  Crime?  What’s that?  Clean streets?

 

Oh, the two previous mayors of NYC were both law and order Republicans, not like the present mayor who is encouraging crime.  Well, people have to learn the hard way, I suppose.  Here are some WP comments about the above article about Germany aping US billionaire desires to control the media again:

Merkel knows that many Germans now know the truth (that main stream news is fake) and she is scrambling for cover just like the truth teller Hillary Clinton. Good riddance!

Merkel only needs to fear the truth about what she has done to Germany. To her, that is “fake news”.  
She doesn’t need to worry if “she doesn’t have anything to hide”… I’m sure the NSA stopped eavesdropping and collecting data from her cell phone. (wink, wink)
ru777ru

 

Merkel is looking for reasons why the election will fail. She will collapse in the elections. She is preparing for a fiasco.

 

 

The divisions, the belief that Hillary would protect everyone on the left even though she was nakedly a Bilderberg gangster who had zero intentions of doing the things she promised…this doesn’t stop liberals from imagining she would protect them. This is the fault of the mainstream media that covered up her private promises and speeches she made to all the foreign powers and rich Americans. This is the real media crime.

    It appears that Trump is falling into the roll assigned to him by the oligarchs that supported him as well as those that supported Hillary. I was curious about who “Betsy DeVos” was, so I checked Wikipedia, and this is what I found:

    “DeVos’ brother, Erik Prince, founded Blackwater USA, a private security firm which had operations in Iraq.[4]”

    Wow. The sister of the man who founded Blackwater is now going to be the Sec. of Education. Coincidence? No. I see no end to the wars now, as one family member after another of known warmongers or industrialists who profited from the wars become cabinet members and start to take control of any attempt to stop the wars.

    My only question now is: what is in it for Trump personally?

    Did he just HAVE to be president? Was that it? Did he need to parade his family of trophy wives and pageant queens and their children before the whole country just to assuage his ego in some way?

    (He needs nearly a thousand Secret Service men to protect them at a cost of 2 million a day. He even made them pay for extra seats on his private jet).

    Obama will be playing golf in California soon. That’s his big reward. I wonder what Trump’s reward will be, or is it just a huge power trip for him?

    The “fake news” helped get Trump elected, but will he raise a finger to stop the crack-down? I don’t think so. Elaine is lucky she was not named personally, but I bet she and several other sites will be silenced soon. This is not an idle threat, but one that can put into action without much dissent from the public at large. Elaine does not own her own server, and neither do most of the other sites.

    When It Comes to Fake News, the U.S. Government Is the Biggest Culprit – https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/when_it_comes_to_fake_news_the_u.s._government_is_the_biggest_culprit

    As veteran journalist Carl Bernstein, who along with Bob Woodward blew the lid off the Watergate scandal, reported in his expansive 1977 Rolling Stone piece, “The CIA and the Media”:

    “More than 400 American journalists … in the past twenty‑five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency… There was cooperation, accommodation and overlap. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services… Reporters shared their notebooks with the CIA. Editors shared their staffs. Some of the journalists were Pulitzer Prize winners, distinguished reporters… In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.”

    Bernstein is referring to Operation Mockingbird, a CIA campaign started in the 1950s to plant intelligence reports among reporters at more than 25 major newspapers and wire agencies, who would then regurgitate them for a public oblivious to the fact that they were being fed government propaganda.

    In some instances, as Bernstein shows, members of the media also served as extensions of the surveillance state, with reporters actually carrying out assignments for the CIA.

  4. @1 did any oligarchs support trump ?

  5. Christian W

    @ Ziff

    Sheldon Adelson supports both Netanyahu and Trump.

  6. Christian W

    And of course Trump is an oligarch himself.

    Erik Prince (Blackwater) is another bilionaire that supported Trump.

    {Political language, as used by politicians, does not venture into any of this territory [of the artist] since the majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed.

    The truth is something entirely different. The truth is to do with how the United States understands its role in the world and how it chooses to embody it.

    It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.

    I put to you that the United States is without doubt the greatest show on the road. Brutal, indifferent, scornful and ruthless it may be but it is also very clever. As a salesman it is out on its own and its most saleable commodity is self-love. It’s a winner.}

    “The biggest dangers come from the possibility of political change − we’re putting in powers and infrastructure that could easily be badly misused by a future government, and the rapidity of recent political change, from Brexit to the election of Trump, should alert us to the danger.

    “These powers are actually better suited for monitoring and controlling political dissent than catching criminals and terrorists − they’re ideal for an authoritarian clampdown should a government wish to do that. A future government might well.”}

    Harold Pinter was another special snowflake ENTERTAINER.

    Oh the U.S., the U.S. was evil! But did he mention how the actions of his own country, from the 1800s into the first half of the 1900s created the fractured world we live in now? All the failed Muslim states were created by Great Britain. We have Israel because of Great Britain.

    But only the US is the greatest brutal show. What a laugh riot.

    He was, just like all our entertainers, a product of controlled dialectics. A way to bleed people’s energy into silly groups or thoughts that go nowhere. That serve nothing except to get people to scream in hysteria.

    Believe me, if Pinter the SJW had gone out of line, he would have been banished, his plays burned and we would never be allowed to mention his name.

  10. Christian W

    Great Britain created Saudi Arabia too. From the very first until today the UK has nurtured Wahhabism every step of the way. Today UK officers are guiding the Saudi airstrikes against Yemen to destroy infrastructure and the nation as a coherent civilzation.

    Iraq is destroyed, Syria is destroyed, Yemen is destroyed, Libya is destroyed, Afghanistan is destroyed. Iran still survives but is under siege, as is Egypt. Wahhabism has been instrumental in all of those actions.

  11. emsnews

    Afghanistan: graveyard of empires. Yup.

    And yes, we had an election where ‘imperialism’ was never mentioned by the media. Pray tell, what did the ‘mainstream media’ focus on: SEX.

    Yes, sex. And I know personally people who are pissed about Trump because they want ‘free love/sex’ for themselves yet cheerfully used the ‘sex pot’ stuff to stop him and install warmonger Hillary.

    {“War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.”}

  14. Petruchio

    @#14 tio: I think a Death Squad should kidnap McClarridge and his family. I think the women of McClarridge’s family should be raped (multiple times), tortured and finally killed. And we can all say like McClarridge: “That’s tough. Get used to it.” Then give McClarridge a turn at the torture table. He richly deserves it. And ELAINE is proud of knowing these kinds of scumbags??!!

  15. DeVaul

    @ Ziff

    Yes, a small, anonymous group of oligarchs on Wall Street supported Trump. They could see where Hillary was going to take them, and they might lose everything in a nuclear exchange with Russia. They are mainly industrialists who make money selling war materials and other things, but cannot do that if the whole world is a glowing snowball.

    They funded Trump secretly against the financial oligarchs, the Pentagon, the DC establishment, and the group known as the “neocons”, and perhaps some others who wanted Hillary to carry on the fight. The fanaticism of these groups scared just enough oligarchs that a Trump presidency became possible.

    At least, this is my understanding of who was fighting who in the shadows.

    None of this was reported to the American people. Everything we saw was just a kind of circus maximus designed to keep us distracted from the puppet masters, their servants, and their schemes.

    It is important to note here that neither group gives a damn about the American people or their problems. It was a battle among the nobility. It’s just that one group wanted the looting to continue without a nuclear war or French style revolution, and it looks like they got what they wanted for now.

    What I think we will see now is another four years of looting and pillaging of the US Treasury, Social Security, Medicare, and whatever remains of the middle class and possibly the upper middle class. They will be squeezed until there is no blood left. The wars will be allowed to simmer on, but not boil over and blow up the world and ruin the whole party.

    That is the mentality of an oligarch.

  16. DeVaul

    Ok, here is another oligarch that secretly supported Trump and whose name we never knew until today:

    “With a Florida home down the road from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago retreat, the 78-year-old Ross played a role in crafting and selling the president-elect’s tax-cut and infrastructure plans.”

    This man worked most of his life at Rothschild and specialized in buying bankrupt factories in the mid-West and then reorganizing them into low paying manufacturing jobs that mirror Asian sweatshops.

    He is a multibillionaire who flies back and forth from his office in New York to his home in Florida which is down the street from one of Trump’s palaces.

    Looks like the cabinet appointees will show us who his supporters were.

  17. Nani

    The increasingly authoritarian Angela Merkel frightens me. I fear for the future of Europe if this mad woman gets re-elected for another four years.This woman believes wide open borders is a wonderful thing. Allowing anyone to come to Europe, including criminals and terrorists, is supposed to be a good thing?

    Hopefully Trump or Purin can put this deranged woman in her place! She needs to be thaught a harsh lesson in humility.

  18. So if they were secret how do you know about it ?

  19. DeVaul

    @ Ziff

    I learned it first from the Archdruid Report, I believe. I don’t know exactly how he knew it, although I suspect it is based on his observations of history.

    After that, I started looking up the histories of Trump’s appointees and began to see the connections to Wall Street industrialists and billionaires along with the Rothschilds, an ancient banking aristocracy that profits from financing wars. The unfolding story matched the facts he presented.

    I also relied on my understanding of history, which shows that most of it is a battle between oligarchs/aristocrats/etc. with the people being used and manipulated like medieval peasants. Do you know of a time or place in the last 5,000 years of imperial history when this was not so?

  20. tio

    @Pet

    McClarridge was interviewed at a time when there was a genuine symbiosis between big capital and labour. Say for example, that your scientists discovered that bananas were a super food that could be grown cheaply (somewhere else), wouldn’t you want that to become a staple of your herd? Why did it happen they way it did? Why does a dog lick its balls? The nasty man cannot be faulted in this logic.

    toodles.

  21. emsnews

    Um, hate to tell anyone this secret news, but the GOP has always been for rich people…but the DNC is…FOR RICH PEOPLE!!!

    HAHAHAHA. The elites rule us as I keep pointing out. They hate Trump not because he isn’t one of them but because he picked up the white male working class and won them over to his side by telling them, they have been cheated by the DNC rich people.

    Ahem: the DNC supposedly was for the ‘working stiffs’ of America not against them but of course, this was a lie.

    The trick here is, NO ONE was supposed to talk to white workingclass males! And Trump did and he won!!! This news has shaken the DNC to the core so they are now in full denial about what happened since it means talking about how they are corrupt from within.

    The GOP has always been for the people at the top. Now, the DNC is, too. The next logical step is…the working white males go find someone who really is on their side and we know how that works if we look at history.

  22. Christian W

    The GOP has always been for the people at the top. Now, the DNC is, too. The next logical step is…the working white males go find someone who really is on their side and we know how that works if we look at history.

    Except the white working males seem to be marching straight into the welcoming arms of the most right wing Zionists. Can the “working white male” avoid this trap?

  23. Lou

    the white working males seem to be marching straight into the welcoming arms of the most right wing Zionists. –Do you mean Donald Trump?

  24. DeVaul

    Yes, he means Donald Trump, but Trump will fritter away his grip on the masses because he is not one of them, unlike say… Adolf Hitler.

    Hitler had control of the German nobility because he kept a firm grip on his populist base and was anti-communist, so the aristocrats, who owned much of the industrial base of Germany, went along with him up to a certain point, after which it was too late for them to stop him.

    Trump is a billionaire aristocrat who took advantage of a class of people, but he is not one of them, so he will dump them like a hot potato. He was never a corporal and never sat in a filthy trench filled with rats, so he has no connection to the people he used. He either wants revenge on his fellow oligarchs or he wants to ingratiate himself with them, or perhaps just some of them. We don’t know because we are not privy to his private meetings with them.

  25. ziff

    well trump must be a really great actor, which is at odds with his inability to control his speech with thought.. I see a kind , intelligent man. We will see, but for now you should celebrate having the ability to elect the peoples choice for the first time.

  26. Petruchio

    Merkel’s attacks come straight from Propaganda 101. Demonize your opponent for doing exactly what you are doing. And the timing is important here. The claim–in this case–of “Fake News” really can’t be levelled too soon. You have to have the right pretext to point to–even though you are lying about your ‘fake news’ claim. Timing is also important because you want to neuter your enemy’s claim that YOU are the one making ‘fake news’.

  27. ziff

    NYT = Ministry of Truth

  28. DeVaul

    Ummm… I don’t think “the people” wanted Trump for president. Only 55% of voters turned out to vote, so 45% of “the people”, including me, did not want Trump as president — or Hillary.

    Furthermore, only half of the 55% who turned out voted for Trump, which gives him an overwhelming mandate of 22.5% of “the people”. This is what has passed for a “mandate” in America for most of my life.

    I just learned that James Madison was quoted as saying that the primary goal of government is to protect the “minority of the opulent from the majority….” Now I’m really bummed out. No further question as to who the Constitution was supposed to serve, so our government was deeply flawed from the get-go. No wonder there were so many rebellions right before and after the creation of that document. The “people” knew it was not for them.

  29. Lou

    (((Kissinger))) will be part of the Trump team. Yikes.

  30. Petruchio

    @#22 tio: As a rule, I do NOT advocate violence against people, but with McClarridge I’ll make an exception. He is a sick, psycho f#ck who should be sent to Hell asap.

  31. Devaul , those sort of figures are true for every election, and of course the end result was far from the the so called prediction

  32. Seraphim

    @GOP has always been for rich people…but the DNC is…FOR RICH PEOPLE!!!

    As the French would say: “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose” ( “The more it changes, the more it’s the same thing.”).
    Ditto Trump vs the ‘oligarchs’.

    @It appears that Trump is falling into the role assigned to him by the oligarchs

    A sober assessment of the ‘transition’ by F. William Engdahl, “The Dangerous Deception Called The Trump Presidency”
    http://journal-neo.org/2016/11/25/the-dangerous-deception-called-the-trump-presidency/

  34. DeVaul

    Just read that. Wow. Thanks for that link, Seraphim. I feel like I live in another universe compared to these people. They are just outright insane and loving every minute of it. How do such humans come into being? How can their entire lives revolve around all this nonsense?

    For some time now I have believed that at least 20% of the American people are sociopaths, but I wonder what the percentage is in our government and its official and unofficial part? 50% maybe? 75%?

    In light of the performance of the entire mainstream media automatons, especially in the last election, where they just mouthed everything they were told to, I am tempted to believe that 80% is a closer number for the total number of sociopaths and their enablers in America at this time.

    I always felt that Trump was not what people built him up to be, based on his own past actions, but I could not say that without causing a storm of protest from those who hated Obama and the Democrats (as if there was ANY difference) and just wanted to hear something different — ANYTHING!

    Well, they got it. I’ll never forget how my papaw admitted to me when I was young that Reagan had betrayed him and every other senior citizen. He was a proud man, so to admit he had voted for him only to be betrayed was a huge deal for him. My grandmother also hated him for the same reason.

    I wonder how many of the so-called “white working stiffs” (that’s not a nice name, really) will admit four years from now that they were roundly betrayed by Trump and that they had voted for him? Not many is my guess.

  35. emsnews

    Sigh…look here, NO ONE can change things ALONE. Expecting miracles is stupid. Hillary openly talked about starting WWIII in four fucking minutes.

    THAT is ‘life and death’ big time. END of time! Finis! No more humans. Reagan: he didn’t run his government, he was brain damaged by a Bush buddy, Bush ran things.

    Who defied Bush successfully? Elaine, the Housewife from Hell. When I camped out in front of the UN and forced Bush to do what I wanted rather than him playing footsie with the communist Chinese, I risked my life doing this thing to him. It was highly dangerous and I won in the bitter end.

    The point here is, I didn’t do stupid demonstrations where we burned stuff and screamed our heads off, I did power politics and forced the hands of fellow global players and…I won.

    What is going on now is similar: you think things are going bad? Then think strategically! Knowing that Trump is a million times better than corrupt Hillary who is owned by the super rich internationalists, at least with Trump we don’t have that hell.

    We have 300 million people in this country and what do we have, politically? Look at the names! At least Trump isn’t ‘more of the same family over and over again!’ And trust me, the elites hate him for all this and want him dead. He doesn’t know how much they all hate him now.

  36. Lou

    At least Trump isn’t ‘more of the same family over and over again!’
    Yes, the death of the USA will be slowed down.
    How much we cant say yet.
    Trump is bringing in Kissinger. That is really bad if it happens.

  37. emsnews

    Ah, dear Kissinger! Better name, Kiss assenger! And he was the one who promised Chou Enlai that my father would come to China, next and it ticked him off that my dad was the #2 request of the Chinese (Nixon didn’t like my father much…).

    Kissinger is no genius. He is a tool. He does do practical things on occasion and clothes these in excuses. But he is also a war criminal (as all these guys and gals are today).

  38. Lou

    Is HK wanted in certain countries for war crimes?

    Yr dad was not a Zionist nor a ((( ))) so he was out of the loop.

  39. Christian W

    At least Trump isn’t ‘more of the same family over and over again!

    Nah, it’s the next House that will plague Americans for the next two decades after the Bushes and the Clintons.

    Trump has very little time left to ‘Drain the Swamp’ (not that he ever intended to). What is also obvious is that there are no other choices in the US system than neocons, neocons, neocons everywhere.

  40. Petruchio

    Henry Kissinger. He is STILL around. What is it with these war criminals? All of them live to be 125 years old.

  41. emsnews

    Don’t you know how to kill vampires yet? Ahem.
