Remember all the hubbub about NewsMax being the next big Fox News? Well, Lordy, Lordy, hold onto your dove of peace brooch because the CEO is a major Clintonite! While claiming to be a Trump ‘confidante’!
He began his career with the monthly tabloid, The New York Guardian, moved on to the liberal New York Post, Pittsburg Tribune, and the Hoover Institution. Ruddy quickly moved through rank and files, becoming a member of the International Council chaired by Henry Kissinger within the CSIS, Center for Strategic and International Studies chaired by the very liberalist ideology of Tom Pritzker.
The CEO of CSIS is John Hamre who served as Deputy Secretary of Defense under – Bill Clinton. Despite claiming to be a ‘republican’, Hamre worked with the Obama transition team as well. He later served with Ash Carter and Sam Nunn – liberal Obama appointees. Nunn’s early career began when he was declared recipient of the Distinguished Eagle Scouts Award – errr, as a Boy Scout. Yes, that’s in his official bio.
The CSIS organization declares its focus of engagements include; HIV, TB, Malaria, Polio – as in all things – Bill Gates. How very enlightening. They hosted Hillary Clinton as a keynote speaker, and yet somehow, are media defined as – conservative.
If that wasn’t enough disinformation, Ruddy joined the board of the American Swiss Foundation. In essence, the unraveling reveals the republican/GOP rhino’s that have perpetuated within our ranks for ‘decades’. ALl whilst pretending to be Reagan Conservatives.
Ruddy went on to become a patron of the Wikimedia Foundation which perpetuates a very uniquely liberal onslaught of every entry in history.
Opportunity seemed boundless, and Ruddy joined the Hoover Institute chaired by Condoleeza Rice which routinely promotes the Washington Post, CNN, New York times, etc… etc… etc…
Ruddy’s early years portrayed him as a sceptic of Bill Clinton, particularly in the death of Vince Foster. However, sometime around 2007, Ruddy and his NewsMax partner suddenly made a public about-face and became enamored by all things – Clinton.
Ruddy and the Clintons became good friends – socializing, lunching, and soon Ruddy was appointed to the Clinton Foundation touring Africa with Bill and blogging on their website! How conservative.
So who exactly started pushing NewsMax as a Conservative site to replace Fox?
Look no further than the liberal media: Washington Post, New York Times, Front Page Mag, The New Yorker and of course, NewsMax – itself. Inserting itself as a ‘pro-Trump’ platform, they would seem to be – the deceptor from OZ.
Who did NewsMax immediately indoctrinate to their log of team members in 2020, Shaun Kraisman, who previously worked for the syndicated satire – National Report.
What an odd appointment.
Ruddy and NewsMax initially secured support and funding from the Scaife Foundation which has funded neoconservative organizations including the Project for New American Century, renamed Foreign Policy Initiative. Their secondary funder was William Casey, former director of the CIA. They brought in heavy weights from the government owned BBC, Newsweek, United Press International and Alexander Haig – as an advisor. Billing themselves as the Republican News site – they sought to calibrate themselves as conservative Reagonites despite their neoconservative ideologies and hawkish policies.
They are deeply entrenched in operatives such as Bush, Romney, Bill Kristol, and renowned, Robert Kagan. Together, they helped formulate the war on Syria with the help of the Brookings Institute.
Under the guise of being the offshoots of president Reagan and his policies, these neoconservatives are literally Democrats with a few feathers.
As in – arrows in a quiver.
While it is well known that the Washington Post has been a propaganda tool of the CIA since the 1950’s under Director Dulles, it would appear, that a comparable neoconservative alignment billed as conservative would be – NewsMax.
Their purpose is regime change and they offer those services to anyone willing to pay the going price. Their function – WAR. Which means they had to have ties with major defense industries such as Raytheon and/or Boeing and/or Northrup Grumman, etc…
President Trump’s policy of disengagement from all things war – was a hit on the bottom line of these massively over-gluttonous industries, and thus another enemy was created.
Case in point – one of NewsMax former Directors was Bruce Jackson who also served as VP for Lockheed Martin. Jackson worked on the advisory team for both Bush and McCain as well as working in the trading department for Lehman – the defunct, corrupted – Lehman. Another former member of the board of Directors to NewsMax was Yonghao Pu of the Bank of China.
None of this is exactly a resume that would have been beneficial to MAGA or Trump or anything remotely in-between. But it does illuminate the defrauding of reality with an illusion and deception.
All of this traces back to the tentacles of NewsMax CEO, Chris Ruddy. To think he ever represented the ideals of President Trump and we The People is absurd at best. A better analogy would be an alignment with the Lincoln Project and NED.
And we The People along with President Trump – were targets.
