It's coup de tats all the way down!

I love that X doesn't wonder about the latter-day insurgence of the KGB. Rest assured though that I DO wonder. I wonder how a CCCP schill gets paid. Is it in cash, snuff porn, or simply unrealized threats of violence? What gives, comrade?

Seems we agree on one thing. I told ya all in December you were in for a nice, soft and warm velvet revolution , with Pence taking over.

Its a coup d'etat. Plain and simple. America has specialised in this for decades, so it comes as no surprise that yet another democratically elected President is in the sights of the CIA.... only this time around your

Deep State is targeting a US president because he wants to change fudge up, against the wishes of the Establishment.


Growing up I could never understand how the average German citizen, as seen in those grainy B & W film clips, could be sooo happy to support Hitler during WWII. How could it be ?

Were they ignorant to the goings on?

Then I discovered Joseph Goebbels and the dark art of propaganda.

As I read thru this thread, it strikes me that propaganda, fed to EBers via the media, is being used to demonise and ultimately get rid of Trump, one way or the other. Whilst I accept that propaganda is the norm

these days, its use in this instance is blatant as drymount.

The three quotes below fit like a glove...

quote-propaganda-works-best-when-those-who-are-being-manipulated-are-confident-they-are-acting-joseph-goebbels-82-33-48.jpg


Incidentally, I see German Intelligence, after investigating for months, announced in early February it has found no evidence of a any Moscow-directed cyber-attacks or disinformation campaigns aimed at subverting the democratic process in Germany. -

The report was leaked to a German newspaper. Naturally, given the investigation revealed incorrect conclusions, Angela Merkel has now ordered a second investigation.

Media reporting on this newsworthy piece, particularly in the USSA ?

Lets just say the silence is deafening....

Yeah, he was unhinged, ignorant, insecure, dishonest, racist, and delusional. I'm sure his supporters loved it.

I saw some people tweeting at Shep Smith today asking him which side he was on and claiming that he was "confusing the viewers." Some of them are demanding Fox take him off the air. It must be tough when some truth slips though into your propaganda stream.

X. Not to point out the obvious, but your THE victim of the propaganda that you allude too. Seriously, what do you know about the current state of the union here in the US other than online, television, etc? You've never visited the US, you know nothing about the US other than what you've been indoctrinated into believing. You said nothing of a velvet revolution in December, you're completely full of fudge when it comes to what constitutes a coup d'etat and, once again, your posts are nothing more than fake news hyperbole to champion your flavor of the week. Give it up.

Same as 90% of the people who actually do live here... (disclaimer on the 90% number, just a guess and speculation on my part - Don't want to be accused of fudging numbers!!)

Funny you mention that, because the "he should follow Megyn Kelly to the fake news networks" joke was repeated ad nauseam. You sound just like them.

Kelly is now one of the highest paid people in news and is joining a broadcast network, so I'm sure she'll be heard from by plenty. She'll now have a much more diverse audience to educate on the skin color of Santa Claus.
