This particular US proTrump alt right individual and his blogsite have just picked up this narrative which first came out of Russian right wing bloggers who blog in English....

.@POTUS is the target of coup d’état being undertaken by the Deep State & government-controlled MSM -

Just another ongoing example pf close ties between Russian propaganda trolls and US alt right proTrump supporters...using the same stories....

Nigel Farage says he met #Assange for "journalistic reasons," then angrily walks out of @DIEZEIT interview
http://www.zeit.de/politik/ausland/2...tacts/seite-2#

Farage drove the Brexit and led the ultra right UK party UKIP and tried to see Assange an without the press noticing it.....he never did release "an interview of their meeting".....

Another reason to support transparency in campaign financing: Dark money makes it easy to conceal funding of cyberpropaganda.

A good sign--> Twitter is working to "detect when Twitter accounts are attempting to manipulate Twitter’s Trends through inorganic activity"

Russia MP Pushkov says @realDonaldTrump is target of information war.

In this reverse case of information warfare Trump seems to be supporting his own war very well with tweets and public statements...

Russian Embassy in the UK cites conspiracy website 'Moon of Alabama":

A very active proTrump and proRussian and proPutin
http://www.moonofalabama.org/

A very interesting site in that who is exactly behind it and from where it is based and or located out of..does not exist......

This is the only page that says anything

About
Moon Of Alabama

Quote:
This site's purpose is to discuss politics, economics, philosophy and blogger Billmon's Whiskey Bar writings.
Some time ago, the commenting at Billmon's Whiskey Bar became a bit excessive. Billmon therefore closed the comments at his place on June 29, 2004. The community of commentators was left behind to search for a new place.
Moon Of Alabama was opened as an independent, open forum for members of the Whiskey Bar community.
Bernhard started and still runs the site. Once a while you will also find posts and art from regular commentators.
The name of the original Whiskey Bar was taken from Bertolt Brecht's Alabama Song where the first line goes:
"Show me the way to the next whiskey bar".
The name Moon of Alabama was taken from the first line of the chorus of that song:
"Oh, moon of Alabama ...".
The design of this site has been directly stolen or re-engineered from the Whiskey Bar site.
You can reach the current administrator of this site by emailing Bernhard at MoonofA_at_aol.com (replacing _at_ with @).
IMHO this is a Russian site as it carries several Brecht quotes which many Americans would not be aware of nor use on a blogsite....the articles are defintely anti US FP and proTrump......

ACTUALLY a very active Russian driven political discussion site....

Quote:
This is perhaps the most efficient description of the American condition that I've read here at MofA. And, in some industries at least, there's some profit made behind bankable, predictable, retarded strategy.
One side are genocidal maniacs proven by repeated attempts at erasing history and ethnic cleansing...for the other side it's an existential war with more honourable and capable allies. With any luck, Syria, Iraq AND nato ally Turkey will be turned against ill-conceived US desires for the region.

My immediate reaction to this event was that the US-funded fighters were in imminent danger of destruction and expulsion from Syria. The air-strike was intended to stop what was otherwise likely to be a victorious advance of the Syrian army. I suppose it was a red-line for the US. They weren't willing to see their so expensively trained recruits destroyed.
Though I quite agree that it was completely illegal.

Igor Bundy So like a retard you have to show it multiple times before they get it.
But you apperently didn't get that the US war industry didn't lose at all....

@10 terril
i agree with you on the invincibility of a combined syria-iraq and with hezbollah-iranian support ... i just don't see the leadership in iraq. they're going to have a have revolution there - at least one, maybe one in iraqi kurdistan, too - first. or at the same time.
i pity the iraqis, the syrians ... all the blood spilled by american neocons, for nearly 15 years in the new american century, and for that long on the other side of 2000 in iraq.
there must be a war crimes tribunal for the us at the end of all this. it cannot be allowed to just walk away from crimes of this magnitude.

The reason that the Russian UK Embassy is of importance is that it is one of the most active Russian English propaganda twitter accounts....and it sets the tone then for US proTrump alt right ie white nationalist sites...

Did "alt-right" hoaxster Jack Posobiec plant fake protest signs at a net neutrality protest? It sure looks like it:

http://mm4a.org/2qyI04i

Posobiec is the leading twitter account involved in pushing fakes news during the French election which came first out of Russia twitter accounts and was behind the hashtag Marconleak during the Wikileaks data dump on Marcon emails that Russian GRU had hacked....

Sometimes this is the only way to stop FOX News fake news/propaganda/lies....

Seth Rich's family sent a cease & desist order to the detective/Fox News contributor spreading lies abt his death.

Remember FOX News was getting active Russian replay of this story support in the Russian media and via Twitter from Russian trolls...

WAS designed to distract from the Comey firing.....

Facebook could tell us how Russia interfered in our elections. Why won’t it?

ProTrump twitter account and massive supporter of Russian trolls and vice versa and a supporting actor in a number of alt right US blogsite AND a strong spreader of "fake news"....

Cernovich claimed he got the story from Bloomberg but Bloomberg was sitting on it. What about the white house source(s) for this interview?
