Russian media picks up Trump's narrative: "It was the British, not Russia that spied on USA".

This particular US citizen a former CIA type is often quoted by the Russian propaganda media outlet Russia Today.....

Larry Johnson says Russia Today isn't propaganda, even as he's RT's go-to CIA veteran used to spread Russian disinformation...he was the first to push the Trump being monitored by the UK

What is interesting is how disinformation/propaganda works in the MSM IE say FOX News.....

Johnson tells @brianstelter, re: GCHQ wiretapping allegation, that he heard the information not directly but "from people who would know."

He never defined during the interview nor was he challenged on the "from people who would know"....

This was repeated during the RT interview as well.....

THEN again on FOX News there was a legal pundit a former judge who repeated the UK story ....

Trump also referred to this great legal mind who also repeated the same exact UK spying story BUT this time he himself stated that THREE US intel types had told him....

But he never ever named the three US intel types...

THEN during a daily WH press conference Spicer read a report taken from FOX News repeating the same exact

Spicer on GCHQ allegations: "I don't think we regret anything"

THEN at the Merkel press conference Trump literally told the reporter to go "ask Fox News" about the false accusation made yesterday of British spying...

EVEN in the face of being told by the UK that in fact he was spreading "fake news" and basically lying..... Spicer kept repeating the UK myth.

BUT THEN even FOX starts backpedaling..........

FOX just said it CAN'T confirm its analyst's claim

So we see a Russian pushed conspiracy myth get started on Russia Today a propaganda media outlet...makes it then to Twitter...then makes it to FOX News and then gets picked up by the Trump WH....then FOX bails on it being the truth BUT the WH still stands by it....

AND the UK states...totally fake news....

Another example of Congressional hypocrisy towards hacking..monitoring and Russian disinformation/propaganda.....


Today...

Sen. Rand Paul: Whoever leaked transcript of former NSA Michael Flynn's contacts with Russian ambassador should "go to jail" #ThisWeek


Funny how three years ago @RandPaul described #Snowden's actions as »noble«
https://youtu.be/2ySf1Bztiuc

Listen to exactly what he was saying THREE years ago and then balance it against today's comments....

So in fact when conversing with a Russian source that you have lied about even contacting is not an "illegal leak"...BUT Flynn supposedly held a TS/SCI which requires one to inform your SSO if anything changes on your SF86....especially under "foreign contacts"...

BUT WAIT...Republican disinformation is often as good as Russian at attempting to deflect....

Suddenly there is no more accusations of wire tapping and now a full scale attack on those that leaked information on Flynn....

Nunes said on "Fox News Sunday" that leaks to reporters about former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn were criminal and that his panel was probing whether other names were leaked

AGAIN using FOX as the distribution point...

Nato claims it has proof Russia is trying to topple Angela Merkel
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...-a6915171.html

Russian has massively stepped up the info war daily now against Merkel and Germany...

Russia failed in getting the Dutch neo Nazi Wilders elected....Le Pen in France is failing equally as bad and the German ultra right AfD is at a 7% down from 14% and still sinking in poll numbers the more Nazi like it gets....

IMPORTANT for IT security types...not confirmed from anyone outside Russia as of yet......

There has been some recent chatter though on the dark net about something "big" coming in the hacking of banks....

Russia's Central Bank warns of a new virus that infects ATMs without physical contact & does not leave a trace:

In Russian

Interesting that this comes from the Russian CB...

Common thing is the skimmer technique...but this seems to be far different...

In order to full understand Russian disinformation and propaganda one must fully understand the US counter version being pushed by the right wing blogsites that push massive conspiracy myths without a shred of evidence...

NSA documents prove SURVEILLANCE of TRUMP and his FAMILY https://www.infowars.com/nsa-documen...jones/#… breaking now -

Quote:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Infowars.com have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to Infowars.com.

The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.
Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have identified dozens of entries at various addresses, including both Trump Tower in New York City and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, under which Donald Trump was apparently under NSA electronic surveillance from 2004, during President George W. Bush’s term of office, through 2009, the first year of President Obama’s presidency.
Russian propaganda uses the Russian 6Ds principles.....

Distort...Deflect...Dismay....Dismiss ALL designed to create Doubt and Distrust....


NOTICE just how the first two paragraphs are used to establish a "sort of creditability" of the story thus those reading would assume..."hey it is coming from law enforcement thus must be true"....

The article talks about the ability to place a virus into the RAM operating the ATM...that does not delete itself out after a reboot...what the virus does is allows one to punch in a specific code and the ATM will then dispense all large value bills that are in the ATM money cassette....ATM does not report the loss as no code lines are being used when say someone uses a debt card...

Normal virus detectors do not pick up this so called RAM virus....

Most viruses no longer use RAM because a reboot would delete them thus is interesting that there is potentially a RAM virus that does not delete with a reboot....

THIS is exactly how Russian disinformation and or propaganda works ONLY it is US driven disinformation and or propaganda.....EXACTLY HOW FAKE NEWS works..this time driven by FOX News without relying on Russia Today as the starting point

Step 1: Trump makes a misleading, inaccurate statement
Step 2: Fox News amplifies it, with a shred more context
Step 3: Millions believe it
