It is sometimes so obvious, and yet it alludes time and again – Follow The Money!
In 2016, two Senators, Rob Portman and Chris Murphy introduced a bill that was signed into law by Obama buried within the National Defense Authorization Act, which gave the US government the authority to regulate the Media and Social Information through a newly formed agency called, The Center For Information Analysis and Response. They were given a budget and tasked with distributing that money through grants to NGO’s, think tanks and other experts outside the government who are engaged in propaganda related work!
OUCH! Gee, who might those outside agents be, I wonder?
One of the NGO’s specifically stated in the Bill that will work directly with the Center is the European Endowment For Democracy. According to their website they fund youth programs, new media platforms, and political debate in Serbia, Ukraine, Syria, Lebanon, and Macedonia. The EED works in conjunction with various ‘social democrat’ EU organizations to promote a cohesive ideology of liberalism.
One alternative media outlet that the US is funding through this bill and through the support of EED is Coda Story. Billed as a ‘non-news’ media platform and headed by Andy Pryce of the UK’s Foreign Office, this ‘independent Russian media organization’, promotes stories in which Trump is villainized as misleading the public and as being in collusion with Putin via the Trump Dossier. It discusses the plight of immigrants, and claims to analyze the disinformation Campaign promulgated by the US. Andy Pryce is currently a permanent representative of the OECD.
In other words, a US agency funded by the taxpayers for the US government, is funding Disinformation Media Organizations in the EU that promote anti-Trump and anti-US dialogue.
According to Section 3 paragraph (b) item (3): “Developing and disseminating fact-based narratives and analysis to counter propaganda and disinformation directed at United States allies and partners.” is one of the functions of the Center For Information Analysis and Response… The truth would appear to be quite different!
In addition, this Bill gave the US Broadcasting Board of Governors more power to “expose and counter foreign information operations directed at the United States national security interests and proactively advance fact-based narratives that support United States allies and interests.”
That’s legal mumbo for – power to completely print US media propaganda. It is also worthy to note that the Broadcasting Board was previously overseen by a Board of nine Governors until 2015 when Obama eliminated the Board and gave full power one man, the Obama nominated CEO, John F. Lansing, who presides today.
Another organization funded by the Center is the European External Action Service which is a collaborative effort between the EU and NATO for infrastructure rebuilding, blocking power against US sanctions against Iran, and EU Nationalism. The US is funding this EU tool.
The Center shall work within conjunction of a Steering Committee comprised of one member from; Secretary of Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Di- rector of National Intelligence, the Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development, the Chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, as well as the Secretary of State – Mike Pompeo.
I imagine, those agency members could be considered a part of The Swamp.
Compensation and Pay for the Director and other employees will be fixed by the Chairman without restrictions as related to Chapter 51 and Subchapter III of Chapter 53 of Title 5 of the US Code relating to pay rates… In other words, normal pay channels are bypassed and enlarged payments can be instituted at will.
The Bill stipulates that all NGO’s and organizations seeking grants and funding from The Center must undergo a thorough vetting process to assure their organization promotes the interests and objectives of the US! As in – anti-Trump!
Funding for The Center was initially stipulated at $160million over a two year period with a ten year point of time when the Steering Committee would functionally close. That would indicate that at minimum, $80million per year is being pumped into anti-Trump, anti-conservative, propaganda outlets across the world annually.
It is also worthy to note that through the Bill’s organization of The Center, Facebook, Google, Twitter and liberal social media platforms were thus able to legally quash conservative blogs and censor information that was not in line with the propaganda of the Hillary/Obama/Rothschild/Soros cabal of Media Control. And it still is a functioning source today paid for by you and I.
Exactly how is this possible…
