CIA Troll Food – 10 ways to spot a Russian Spy

The CIA is using an army of internet Trolls as a form of PsyOps in the information war that’s raging since the loss of their establishment candidate.  Here’s a pocket guide how to spot a *real* Russian spy (not the CIA trained ‘fake spies’ pretending to be Russian Spies’)

Now that Putin has officially communicated with Trump in typical elegant communique fashion (contrary to popular belief, Putin’s role in Russia is more of international statesman than domestic dictator), the anti-Russian propaganda machine is in overdrive, re-tasking all available resources for this one purpose: drive a wedge as deep as possible in the new power paradigm coming to DC by maxing out on the existing percentage of controlled zombie consumers that can be remotely manipulated via TV & internet media.  The coup failed, which should be a shame for the CIA considering the amount of successful coups that have been engineered in foreign countries, but now it’s time to maximize the ground taken, even if small, in the war for minds that has been established as a base foothold (they read Sun Tzu, too).  It’s time for the establishment to retreat into their bunkers and behind their defense lines; for soon they will lose their power in the richest most powerful country in the world.

Although Russia and America are 2 superpowers with much in common, 80 years of Soviet rule changed Russian culture and the gene pool more than any other part of the Caucasian world.  By the way, the ‘Caucasian’ race is named for the ‘Caucus’ mountains from which they came, which are in Russia.  The Russians made the only real successful social revolution against their Elite aristocratic overlords; the Romanovs.  Although it’s a lot less publicized than similar revolutions in France and other places, it was in fact the only such revolution in a major country that resulted in 80 years of real social change – for better or worse.  In France, the outcome of the French Revolution was the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte; in America – after a period of relative independence and freedom, America would once again be dominated by the oppressor class from which it fought to be free from.  And Russia seems to have the same fate now; after 80 years of something different, the rise of Capitalism and the oligarch class is leading Russia down a path not much different from America’s, just a few decades behind.

Here’s 10 ways to spot a *real* Russian Spy in America:

1) Superior use of the English language, with a thick accent, failure to use articles such as ‘the’ and ‘a’ – such as ‘take shower’ instead of ‘going to take a shower.’  Russian Language is far more complex but more logical and efficient in use of letters, speech, and writing.  Russian natives who master English typically have a large vocabulary, and will use proper tenses and complex grammatical structures because they studied it, and will likely leave out slang such as ‘you know’ and ‘like.’  (Until of course, they live here for 10 years)

2) Never smiling.  Russians do not smile unless they are laughing at a joke, and maybe in some rare cases when something funny happens.  Even in this case, their dark sense of humor is something they enjoy on the inside.  It’s not polite to walk around Moscow smiling.  If you do, someone may call the police (as if you have gone mad).

3) Seems to be rude – never says ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ – Russians do not have a concept of why you should say ‘thank you’ to a stranger who just took $50 from you for your groceries.  How has this person really helped you or brightened your day?  Isn’t it their job?  Should you say ‘thank you for doing your job’ as if it’s a miracle?  

4) Does not wear shoes in his home, he has a foyer where when he enters his house takes off all coats, scarves, hats, shoes and other ‘outdoor’ wear and puts on fuzzy house slippers or just wears socks.  

5) Constantly pays with physical cash.  Although some Americans do this anyway who are not necessarily Russian – nearly ALL Russians use 100% physical Rubles for everything from paying rent, health insurance, doctors visits, buying a car, buying groceries, or investing.  The electronic economy hasn’t taken hold in Russia – and partly because they are ‘paranoid’ that if they put their money in a bank, the bank will seize it or bankrupt.  

6) Never will open a door for a stranger, or move out of the way if you are in his walking vector, in fact he may knock over any passersby like bowling pins if they are in the way; and certainly will never say ‘excuse me.’ 

7) Always well dressed, even to go grocery shopping – maybe keeps a pocket comb even if his hair is only 2 cm long.  Russians don’t have a concept of wearing sweat suits or pajamas to the grocery store.  When they go out even if just to run to the corner store for a milk.

8) Weary to use air conditioner.  In Russia very few buildings have A/C – in the summer months when it’s hot, it is still cool at night, when most open windows and enjoy a nice breeze.  Modern buildings of course have the conveniences of A/C but those who are older or who grew up in older buildings do not have A/C – only heat.  Therefore, they aren’t used to cranking up the A/C year round like the blue hairs in Sunny Florida.  If they are hot they are more likely to take a walk or open the windows.

9) Not likely to find Russians in paid public events unless they are formal.  Russia has a well-developed public system of parks and other free public use systems and they aren’t used to paying a few dollars to enter a public park, see Christmas lights, or $1 to view through binoculars along side the highway.  Paying $250 for theater tickets is different – they aren’t cheap people, they are just not used to being nickeled and dimed when outside their homes, because in Russia it’s all free.

10) Strange tippers.  In Russia they don’t use the ‘tipping’ system, if you eat in a café or bar you may leave your spare change for example, if the bill is $9.50 you may leave the additional $.50 – or if you have a few extra dollars you may leave it – or not.  The majority of cafes, restaurants, bars, and other establishments only expect tips from tourists.  And if a Russian does leave a tip, it’s likely to be very small (not 10%!!).

There you have it!  There are many cultural differences between USA and Russia, although there are too many similarities.  In this series of articles, we’re spreading the facts about Russia – the great unknown Bear.

Putin and Trump will certainly bring USA-Russia relations to a ‘qualitatively’ new level.

Trump ‘Triggers’ Social Media Over Democrat-Bashing Putin Tweet

President-elect Donald Trump ‘triggered’ the social media world into a frenzy Friday night with a tweet that praised Russian president Vladimir Putin’s criticism of Democrats. As The Hill reports, Putin on Friday deflected accusations of Russian interference in the U.S. election, saying at a press conference: “Democrats are losing on every front and looking for people to blame everywhere. They need to learn to lose with dignity.”

Later Friday, Trump piled on, lauding Putin and continuing his denial that Russia interfered in the election.

Vladimir Putin said today about Hillary and Dems: “In my opinion, it is humiliating. One must be able to lose with dignity.” So true!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 24, 2016

  Trump’s words drew widespread condemnation on Twitter,   from journalists, liberals, conservatives and those in the entertainment industry…

Obama Quietly Signs The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” Into Law

Late on Friday, with the US population embracing the upcoming holidays and oblivious of most news emerging from the administration, Obama quietly signed into law the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military in 2017.

In a statement, Obama said that:

Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy national security programs, provides vital benefits for military personnel and their families, and includes authorities to facilitate ongoing operations around the globe. It continues many critical authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and to reassure our European allies, as well as many new authorizations that, among other things, provide the Departments of Defense and Energy more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles.”

Much of the balance of Obama’s statement blamed the GOP for Guantanamo’s continued operation and warned that “unless the Congress changes course, it will be judged harshly by history,” Obama said. Obama also said Congress failed to use the bill to reduce wasteful overhead (like perhaps massive F-35 cost overruns?) or modernize military health care, which he said would exacerbate budget pressures facing the military in the years ahead.

But while the passage of the NDAA – and the funding of the US military – was hardly a surprise, the biggest news is what was buried deep inside the provisions of the Defense Authortization Act.

Recall that as we reported in early June, “a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth had been quietly introduced in Congress. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information. Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a “whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”

Also called the Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016 (S. 2692), when introduced in March by Sen. Rob Portman, the legislation represents a dramatic return to Cold War-era government propaganda battles. “These countries spend vast sums of money on advanced broadcast and digital media capabilities, targeted campaigns, funding of foreign political movements, and other efforts to influence key audiences and populations,” Portman explained, adding that while the U.S. spends a relatively small amount on its Voice of America, the Kremlin provides enormous funding for its news organization, RT.

“Surprisingly,” Portman continued, “there is currently no single U.S. governmental agency or department charged with the national level development, integration and synchronization of whole-of-government strategies to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.”  

Long before the “fake news” meme became a daily topic of extensive conversation on such discredited mainstream portals as CNN and WaPo, H.R. 5181 would task the Secretary of State with coordinating the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to “establish a Center for Information Analysis and Response,” which will pinpoint sources of disinformation, analyze data, and — in true dystopic manner — ‘develop and disseminate’ “fact-based narratives” to counter effrontery propaganda.

In short, long before “fake news” became a major media topic, the US government was already planning its legally-backed crackdown on anything it would eventually label “fake news.”

* * *

Fast forward to December 8, when the “Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act” passed in the Senate, quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report.

And now, following Friday’s Obama signing of the NDAA on Friday evening, the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is now law.

* * *

Here is the full statement issued by the generously funded Senator Rob Portman (R- Ohio) on the singing into law of a bill that further chips away at press liberties in the US, and which sets the stage for future which hunts and website shutdowns, purely as a result of an accusation that any one media outlet or site is considered as a source of “disinformation and propaganda” and is shut down by the government.

President Signs Portman-Murphy Counter-Propaganda Bill into Law

Portman-Murphy Bill Promotes Coordinated Strategy to Defend America, Allies Against Propaganda and Disinformation from Russia, China & Others

U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) today announced that their Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act – legislation designed to help American allies counter foreign government propaganda from Russia, China, and other nations has been signed into law as part of the FY 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report. The bipartisan bill, which was introduced by Senators Portman and Murphy in March, will improve the ability of the United States to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation from our enemies by establishing an interagency center housed at the State Department to coordinate and synchronize counter-propaganda efforts throughout the U.S. government. To support these efforts, the bill also creates a grant program for NGOs, think tanks, civil society and other experts outside government who are engaged in counter-propaganda related work. This will better leverage existing expertise and empower our allies overseas to defend themselves from foreign manipulation. It will also help foster a free and vibrant press and civil society overseas, which is critical to ensuring our allies have access to truthful information and inoculating people against foreign propaganda campaigns.

“Our enemies are using foreign propaganda and disinformation against us and our allies, and so far the U.S. government has been asleep at the wheel,” Portman said. “But today, the United States has taken a critical step towards confronting the extensive, and destabilizing, foreign propaganda and disinformation operations being waged against us by our enemies overseas. With this bill now law, we are finally signaling that enough is enough; the United States will no longer sit on the sidelines. We are going to confront this threat head-on. I am confident that, with the help of this bipartisan bill, the disinformation and propaganda used against us, our allies, and our interests will fail.”

The use of propaganda to undermine democracy has hit a new low. But now we are finally in a position to confront this threat head on and get out the truth. By building up independent, objective journalism in places like eastern Europe, we can start to fight back by exposing these fake narratives and empowering local communities to protect themselves,” said Murphy. “I’m proud that our bill was signed into law, and I look forward to working with Senator Portman to make sure these tools and new resources are effectively used to get out the truth.”

NOTE: The bipartisan Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is organized around two main priorities to help achieve the goal of combatting the constantly evolving threat of foreign disinformation from our enemies:

  • The first priority is developing a whole-of-government strategy for countering THE foreign propaganda and disinformation being wages against us and our allies by our enemies. The bill would increase the authority, resources, and mandate of the Global Engagement Center to include state actors like Russia and China as well as non-state actors. The Center will be led by the State Department, but with the active senior level participation of the Department of Defense, USAID, the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the Intelligence Community, and other relevant agencies. The Center will develop, integrate, and synchronize whole-of-government initiatives to expose and counter foreign disinformation operations by our enemies and proactively advance fact-based narratives that support U.S. allies and interests.
  • Second, the legislation seeks to leverage expertise from outside government to create more adaptive and responsive U.S. strategy options. The legislation establishes a fund to help train local journalists and provide grants and contracts to NGOs, civil society organizations, think tanks, private sector companies, media organizations, and other experts outside the U.S. government with experience in identifying and analyzing the latest trends in foreign government disinformation techniques. This fund will complement and support the Center’s role by integrating capabilities and expertise available outside the U.S. government into the strategy-making process. It will also empower a decentralized network of private sector experts and integrate their expertise into the strategy-making process.

* * *

And so, with the likes of WaPo having already primed the general public to equate “Russian Propaganda” with “fake news” (despite admitting after the fact their own report was essentially “fake“), while the US media has indoctrinated the public to assume that any information which is not in compliance with the official government narrative, or dares to criticize the establishment, is also “fake news” and thus falls under the “Russian propaganda” umbrella, the scene is now set for the US government to legally crack down on every media outlet that the government deems to be “foreign propaganda.”

Just like that, the US Ministry of Truth is officially born.
