Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard slams Neocon and Neoliberal warmongers after their NBC propaganda selling permanent enslavement of US taxpayers to Endless Unwinnable War Industry profiteers-zero hedge…(Tulsi Gabbard for President in 2020–The only candidate who hasn’t wavered about ending US military intervention in Syria)

To disqualify a US presidential candidate, just be a known pro-war advocacy group backed by the multi-trillion dollar War Industry and claim anonymous “chatter” possibly took place on anonymous online message boards that might be considered anti-war. No wars=No free US taxpayer cash. (Today Putin's their meal ticket, tomorrow it will be someone else. The War Industry is a massive, full time operation that exists only by enslaving US taxpayers). 

2/4/19, Tulsi Gabbard Slams “Neocon/Neolib Warmongers” After NBC Propaganda Exposed," zero hedge 

“Tulsi Gabbard lashed out at “neocon” and “neolib warmongers” after NBC News was exposed trying to smear her as a Kremlin stooge. The network was called out over the weekend for relying on a Democrat-run firm that created fake Russian twitter bots to stage a “false flag” campaign against Republic Roy Moore in the 2017 Alabama special election – New Knowledge. 

To justify its claim that Tulsi Gabbard is the Kremlin’s candidate, NBC writes:

“analysts at New Knowledge, the company the Senate Intelligence Committee used to track Russian activities in the 2016 election, told NBC News they’ve spotted ‘chatter’ related to Gabbard in anonymous online message boards, including those known for fomenting right-wing troll campaigns.”
Only to be called out hard by journalist Glenn Greenwald: 

“@ggreenwald exposes that @NBC used journalistic fraud to discredit our campaign. But more important is their motive: “to smear any adversary of the establishment wing of the Democratic Party whether on the left or the right – as a stooge or asset of the Kremlin.”” 

She later added:

“As commander-in-chief, I will work to end the new cold war, nuclear arms race and slide into nuclear war. That is why the neocon/neolib warmongers will do anything to stop me.

“The term “neoliberal warmongers” is thus born. https://t.co/xiB7qkkao9— zerohedge (@zerohedge) February 4, 2019″ 

Disturbingly, the [deeply corrupt] Senate Intelligence Committee has relied on a report by New Knowledge on Russian social media election interference, while the firm has created a “Hamilton 68” offshoot, “Disinfo2018” referenced in the NBC article, which claims that three of the top URLs propagated throughout social media by Kremlin bots were about Gabbard. 

“Three of the top 15 URL’s shared over the past 24 hours by 800 Russian-linked disinformation accounts tracked by Disinfo2018 are about Tulsi Gabbard, the pro-Putin, pro-Assad congresswoman who just announced she’s running for POTUS in 2020. (One URL is an article; 2 are tweets).

In short; NBC relied on a known propagandist who created a Russian bot “false flag” to meddle in an election, who claims to track pro-Kremlin Twitter activity, in order to smear Tulsi Gabbard as a Putin puppet. 

“That’s a lot of hot talk, Mike.— Ben Popken (@bpopken) [NBC News “reporter”] February 4, 2019″ 

“And your article is one of the hottest piles of garbage masquerading as “journalism” that I’ve ever seen, so congratulations on that. You’re a pathetic joke— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 4, 2019″ 

“Except they’re not “experts” NBC–they’re admitted forgers. You’re a rabble NBC. A complete rabble. Go back to school: https://t.co/e9KJU2oisvpic.twitter.com/1XnfMmjqgh— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) February 3, 2019″ 

It’s uncanny what lengths the establishment will go to in order to eliminate threats. For example, take a look at this Vanity Fair hit piece from Jan 30, which uses perhaps the most unflattering photo Gabbard has ever taken and starts off (emphasis not ours): 

“The presidential campaign of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, the renegade Democrat known as much for her chummy relationship with Bashar al-Assad as for supporting Bernie Sanders, is beginning to resemble the candidate herself: confusing, disorganized, and, according to Politico, falling apart.” –Vanity Fair 

“If you squint hard, you can almost tell they don’t like her. Very subtle pic.twitter.com/duwKhrrUd1— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 2, 2019″ 

One question remains; will Gabbard become a Democrat puppet like Bernie Sanders if the DNC colludes with their chosen candidate to cheat against her?”

Added: “Being right isn’t enough.” Storytelling by plutocrat media is the only reason the Endless Unwinnable US Taxpayer Funded War Industry is alive today: 

“The ability of the plutocratic class and their allied government agencies to manipulate the way people think, act and vote is the only thing holding the ecocidal, omnicidal unipolar world order in place, which is why billions and billions of dollars are poured into the plutocratic media, think tanks, the agenda to censor the internet, and other influence campaigns. Any attempt to replace that world order with a system that serves humanity instead of a few wealthy sociopaths must necessarily understand and interact with this dynamic….

Anyone who wants to legitimately challenge the status quo will necessarily find themselves up against this protective wall of narrative that the ruling power establishment has surrounded itself with, so it’s important to know how to fight against it. 

There are a lot of great alternative media outlets out there, and a lot of good dissident politicians and activists, but the problem they run into again and again is that they often stay calm and monotonous while repeating cold, hard facts. This is a problem because while they’re trying to calmly fight the status quo using raw data, the establishment is using sparkly narratives in all the right places. They’re appealing to emotions, they’re condensing their stories into catchy 20-second sound bytes, and they’re using facts only when facts help advance the narrative. 

I am not saying that dissidents should abandon truth and facts; if you’re not trying to build a world that is based on truth then what the hell are you fighting for? But it is absolutely essential not just to tell the truth, but to seize control of the narrative as well. Get all your facts right, then tell their story. Make it interesting. Make it funny. Activists can be some of the most dry, boring people you’ll ever encounter, believing that their rightness compensates for the fact that nobody’s ever interested in listening to what they’ve got to say. Bollocks! If you want to convey a message, make that message pop!

What’s the point of speaking out if nobody’s even listening? Being right isn’t enough…. 

What the establishment understands and most dissidents do not is that people listen to stories, not data, and the more interesting the story the better. Russiagate didn’t gain traction because it’s factually accurate, it gained traction because it’s a scandalous story [allegedly] about the president of the United States conspiring with nefarious forces and being blackmailed over a night of [alleged] water sports with Russian prostitutes [peeing on a bed in a hotel in Moscow].”…
