Mr. Kalensky Goes to Washington: Will Team Trump Ask Brussels Why EU Taxpayers Are Funding Trump/Breitbart Bashing Neocon Fanatics?

Are you a 'deplorable' Trump voter who likes Trump's promise to 'get along with Putin and Russia'? Love Nigel Farage? Than this EU bureaucrat hates your guts. Now go away or he will tweet-troll you a second time...

One Kalensky m.o. in common with other 'Atlanticist' trolls -- knock down straw men:
Make up claims people didn't actually make (the Nazi collaborator was Freeland's grandfather not father), then 'debunk' them -- Bellingcat/Bellingcrap's Eliot Higgins did the same thing with his 'people claiming 7-year-old Bana Alabed the girl from Aleppo didn't exist' crap, when what skeptics doubted was her ability to tweet in ENGLISH from a war zone

The EUrobureaucratic Mice Who Roared: Demonstrating 'Independence' from Washington By Joining the Establishment's 24/7 Infowar on the Presstitute-Besieged Trump White House

As it stands today, Mr. Kalensky and his team seem hellbent on confrontation with the new U.S. Administration through deliberately exceeding their original EU mandate to focus only on Russian-government sponsored 'propaganda', and instead attacking and trolling the American President and his prominent U.S.-based supporters like Austin, Texas-based talk radio host Alex Jones. Perhaps this is being done if nothing else to demonstrate after years of Russian allegations that the EU is nothing more than a pathetic vassal of Washington, that the Brussels mice can independently roar. Of course, the 'independence' demonstrated by EU Stratcom East's public face smearing the President of the United States as a Russian agent or a threat to democracy happens to be totally in lockstep with the bulk of the Washington/New York Establishment, which loathes alt-media hosts like Alex Jones or outlets such as Russia Insider that @EUvsDisinfo smears

It turns out, what matters when it comes to EUrobureaucratic vassalage to Washington isn't who is in the White House, but what the Council on Foreign Relations or the Atlantic Council and perma-bureaucracy aka the Atlanticist 'Deep State' want. Which apparently, is to defend Angela Merkel's Chancellorship to the last drop of ink and lie -- if not to the final drop of blood as during the 'stand fast' Fuehrer orders to the Wehrmacht on the Eastern and primary Front of World War II...

On American Alt-Right 'Nazis' with Jewish Friends Who Give Speeches vs. Ukro-Nazis Who Beat, Arrest, Torture and Kill People -- Which Ones Do MSM Say Are the Bigger Threat?

In this Standing Globalist Propaganda Order, if you are a German who says #MerkelMussWeg, or an American or Hungarian who happens to sympathize with that slogan, you're ether a Nazi Alt-Reicher who deserves to be punched in the face like Richard B. Spencer or a 'useful idiot for Putin'. Or perhaps both, since Spencer is married (for now) to Alexandr Dugin's U.S.-based translator Nina Kouprianova.

If we had the opportunity, we'd ask Jakub Kalensky whether any Ukrainian politicians who've glorified various collaborators with the Third Reich or used their SS Das Reich division/Wolfsangel symbols, like the Azov Battalion's fuehrer Andre Biletsky, are overdue for getting punched in the face themselves. Because whether you love or hate Richard B. Spencer, he has peacefully expressed ideas, not advocated for violence. No one personally linked to him or his friends -- unlike members of the Azov/Right Sector UkroNazi battalions -- have kidnapped, tortured or killed people opposed to them. Even the pro-NATO/Kiev regime Financial Times, admits these people are dangerous and not firmly under Kiev's formal chain of command:

To be fair, the vast majority of Ukrainians have and want nothing to do with neo-Nazism, and hardcore idolizers of WWII era collaborators Stepan Bandera or the UPA mass murderers of Poles represent less than ten percent of the Ukrainian adult population, if that. Our point is, EU Stratcom East attacks 'Russian propaganda' for correctly pointing out the strong influence the ultras and neo-Nazis like Azov or Right Sector had in society after the Maidan 'revolution' and their status as heavily armed shock troops used to crush anti-Kiev dissent in the Donbass. But if you have right wing nationalist views -- even if you go out of your way to be friendly towards Jews and Israel like France's Marine Le Pen, the Dutchman Geert Wilders, or members of Germany's PEGIDA movement do -- you are a fascist or right wing extremist...because you oppose Merkel's open borders policy and the U.S./EU policies of hostility toward Russia.

Just One Example of How Kalensky and @EUvsDisinfo Lie or Botch Facts in 'Drive By' 'Debunkings' of Alleged 'Kremlin Propaganda' Written by Aussies/Americans

After years of dismissing RT and Sputnik as non-entities no one watched or read, then hysterical propaganda anointing these outlets capable of nudging Trump to the White House, we now have the EU, Germany and other European states essentially establishing ministries of truth not only waging information war with the Russians, but attacking President Trump's agenda around the clock as well. In the course of doing this, Kalensky and his crew are also indulging in falsehoods, smears, and innuendos.

For example, the latest EU Stratcom East Thursday, January 26, 2017 dispatch which attacks Moscow-based Australian citizen reporter John Helmer and American expat-led outlet Russia Insider without naming them gets simple facts wrong. The Canadian Foreign Minister's Ukrainian grandfather, not her father as the EU Disinformation Review reported, is accused from Polish and U.S. archives of having eagerly collaborated with the Nazis against the Poles -- just like the grandparents of many of the Ukrainian nationalists in Lvov who are Jakub Kalensky's friends:

Chrystia Freeland, now Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, speaking at an event with Arseniy Yatsenyuk, then Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland's handpicked choice to become Ukrainian Prime Minister after the 2014 Maidan coup d'etat sponsored by (post)Western governments led by the U.S., Canada, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland

Chrystia Freeland (lead image), appointed last week to be the new Canadian Foreign Minister, claims that her maternal family were the Ukrainian victims of Russian persecution, who fled their home in 1939, after Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin agreed on a non-aggression pact and the division of Poland between Germany and the Soviet Union. She claims her mother was born in a camp for refugees before finding safe haven in Alberta, Canada. Freeland is lying.

The records now being opened by the Polish government in Warsaw reveal that Freeland’s maternal grandfather Michael (Mikhailo) Chomiak was a Nazi collaborator from the beginning to the end of the war. He was given a powerful post, money, home and car by the German Army in Cracow, then the capital of the German administration of the Galician region. His principal job was editor in chief and publisher of a newspaper the Nazis created. His printing plant and other assets had been stolen from a Jewish newspaper publisher, who was then sent to die in the Belzec concentration camp. During the German Army’s winning phase of the war, Chomiak celebrated in print the Wehrmacht’s “success” at killing thousands of US Army troops.

As the German Army was forced into retreat by the Soviet counter-offensive, Chomiak was taken by the Germans to Vienna, where he continued to publish his Nazi propaganda, at the same time informing for the Germans on other Ukrainians. They included fellow Galician Stepan Bandera, whose racism against Russians Freeland has celebrated in print, and whom the current regime in Kiev has turned into a national hero.

Just before Vienna fell to the Soviet forces in March 1945, Chomiak evacuated with the German Army into Germany, ending up near Munich at Bad Worishofen. On September 2, 1946, when Freeland says her mother was born in a refugee camp, she was actually in a well-known spa resort for wealthy Bavarians. The US Army then controlled that part of Germany; they operated an Army hospital at Bad Worishofen and accommodated Chomiak at a spa hotel. US Army records have yet to reveal what the Americans learned about Chomiak’s war record, and how he was employed by US Army Intelligence, after he had switched from the Wehrmacht. It took Chomiak another two years before the government in Ottawa allowed the family to enter Canada.


Jakub Kalensky and EU(SSR) Stratcom East Aren't the Only Ones Losing Their Minds:
Check Out This Crazy Clip from German (taxpayer funded) TV About Assassinating Trump

The irony of this situation is that, twenty five years after the end of the first Cold War and while 'the West' allegedly finds itself in a second Cold War with 'Putin's Russia' if not China, the real that appears to be heating up is within the West. Between what some call 'Atlanticism' which is really globalism, and Trump's more nationalistic approach which has been hailed by European politicians from Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban to opposition leaders Geert Wilders of the Netherlands, Marine Le Pen of France and Beppe Grillo of Italy's 5 Star movement.

Great Job Merkel! You Made Germany Which Had Been One of the Safest Places in the World a Country Where Many Young Women Don't Feel Safe Walking the Streets Alone at Night

As during the first cold war when attempts were made by Senator Joe McCarthy and others to link all leftist movements to Moscow with varying degrees of success and truthfulness to the allegation, today's 'nationalist international' is being attacked as a plaything of the Kremlin. Yet it appears to us individuals such as Mr. Kalensky have either failed to factor in the possibility of a real backlash to their increasingly shrill and hysterical state-funded propaganda, or truly desire to pick a fight with the incoming Trump team in order to pose as martyrs for free speech when they lose U.S. (but not EU) taxpayer funding.

Either way, as the legacy media circles the wagons around German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her criminally reckless open borders policy and doubles down on US/UK/EU taxpayer-funded smears of the Trump Administration, a backlash is coming. Whether that will involve a Trump/Tillerson State Department making damn sure to let Jakub Kalensky and his Brussels bureaucrat bosses know they're not getting a penny of American taxpayer money or invites to State Department events. Perhaps reporters will be personally paying Kalensky a visit with cameras at his Brussels offices to invite him to comment on the record. Whatever happens, we're getting our popcorn ready, and Msrs. Kalensky and his team can't say we didn't see a 'clash of civilizations' between his Russophobic Trump-hating EUrobureaucracy and The Donald's Deplorable nationalist international coming!

Fighting 'Kremlin Misinformation' is a Racket: And Increasingly, a Front for State-Funded Propaganda Against Trump, The Donald's Supporters in America and European Allies

Just as the EU increased the strength of its ‘Stratcom East’ annex from eleven staff to 19, and lobbed another €800,000 in its direction (because nearly $800 million for BBG and £289 million supplementary Defense & Security funding for BBC World Service clearly weren’t enough, not to mention the financial support for the likes of DW, France24, and Euronews to continue fighting the good fight), came a most enlightening conversation between a group of media ‘experts,’ specializing in the post-Soviet space.

The event was hosted by n-ost, a German advocacy group, funded by Washington’s National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which has earned a bit of a reputation for promoting“regime change” in countries independent of US foreign policy. The chat concerned whether “articles about Russian ‘propaganda’ now are more widely read than Russian ‘propaganda’ itself.” Right now, you can take “Russian propaganda” to mean anything which offers an alternative view to the mainstream media consensus.

At the roundtable were an interesting bunch of folk. Alexey Kovalev, formerly of RIA Novosti, was joined by Vladimir Soloviev of Moldova’s Newsmaker, which gets its cash from the European Endowment For Democracy (the EU’s version of NED) and Gemma Pörzgen, a board member of Reporters Without Borders, a concern funded by George Soros, NED and the EU Commission.

As they spoke, our heroes seemed to realize how ridiculous the whole hysteria against Russian media has become. Pörzgen admitted that “in the case of Germany, for example, I think the problem is grossly exaggerated. Some so-called ‘experts’ have blown it up out of all proportion. There’s a lack of proper research on the subject that could provide an objective view. There’s a lot of propaganda around propaganda if you see what I mean.” Meanwhile, Kovalev conceded that (in Russia) “state TV channel budgets, both domestic and international, are being cut, projects are being wound down and so on.”

Freudian slip

It was toward the end of the discussion when things got fascinating when in this warm, relaxed echo-chamber atmosphere the brave info-warriors let it slip that their entire mission is essentially a money racket.

Take Kovalev: “the battle with “Russian propaganda” has already turned into a fully-fledged industry in which many people, including myself, have had successful careers. It would be stupid to give them up because of the negligibility of our field of study. That’s one reason.”

Soloviev: “I also see it as an industry, with budgets that need to be spent. In Moldova, the subject is a best seller on the internal political market. In 2015 the current Mayor of Chisinau (and deputy chair of the right-wing Liberal Party) won his third election thanks to the fact that he spent most of his election campaign fighting Russian tanks. But there’s nothing new about the city looking like the site of some kind of urban warfare.”

Pörzgen: “You’re right there, Alexey. There are so many people in the market who used to cover security issues and have now lost their jobs. But now they’ve seen the chance to get back into business. There are also lobbying groups such as the Atlantic Council, who have started running conferences all over Europe on the same subject: “The rising influence of Russian propaganda.”

And with that, you could have dropped the metaphorical mic. Because the same people who benefit, via funding for their projects, from stoking the fears of Russian domination of the information space, are acknowledging that it’s fundamentally a gravy train. All aboard!
