Fake News, Russian Style

This is the epitome of fake news, showing the gullibility of the media in reporting such fake news (false flags) as real; our media’s susceptibility to accepting at face value narratives that fit their own views or biases (or fears); and the impossibility of trying to determine who’s a “white hat” and who’s a “black hat,” especially when it comes to Russia.

Yesterday, a journalist was murdered:

Prominent Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko, a critic of Russian actions in Ukraine and Syria, has been shot and killed in Kiev, Ukraine officials said late Tuesday.

Ukrainian state news agency Ukrinform said Babchenko, 41, was shot in the back, at his home, and died in an ambulance. …

Police in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, said Babchenko’s wife found him outside their apartment.The Russian Foreign Ministry blamed Ukraine for what it called an “armed assault.”

The AP wrote:

The brazen killing of exiled Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko in the Ukrainian capital Kiev highlights the dangers of working as a journalist in Russia.

But wait? Is this a real life example of

the walking dead?

Today, the murdered journalist was spotted at a press conference (although not as a zombie)!

A Russian journalist and critic of the Kremlin, reported to have been shot dead in Ukraine, showed up alive at a news conference on Wednesday to declare that his murder was faked by Ukrainian security services in an effort to foil an assassination plot against him. 

In a stunning development, Arkady Babchenko, 41, walked into a room of journalists in Kiev who had been expecting to get an update on his slaying

He apologized to his wife, Olechka — who on Tuesday was reported to have found him bleeding to death at his apartment — for the “hell” she had gone through. Ukrainian officials offered a jaw-dropping explanation for his so-called death: to expose a Russian plot against him. ..

The elaborate ruse raised many questions. Chief among them, why was it necessary to go to such extraordinary lengths to expose the plot, who was in on it, and what did Olechka Babchenko really see when she found the bleeding body of her husband?At the news conference on Wednesday, none of these was addressed.

Wheels within wheels. And yet We the People are supposed to believe that “the Russians” colluded with Trump’s campaign, and Ukrainian tricksters had nothing to do with the set up. (Not to mention Australian tricksters, British tricksters, nor tricksters from Malta.)

Ask yourself: Who has colluded with Ukraine in the past?

Who may have used a similar “elaborate ruse” playbook during and after the 2016 election?

Don’t believe what you see or read in the mainstream media. 

Here’s an update on other fake news reporting. Did you see this?

Recent documents released regarding the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas Shooting are beginning to shed light on more discrepancies and abnormalities surrounding the official timeline and narrative of the tragedy as originally stated by Sheriff Joe Lombardo and Special Agent Aaron Rouse of the Las Vegas FBI  …

Page 26 of the dispatch logs that were released by LVMPD details the moments when the alleged shooter, Stephen Paddock, was located by a security detail at the Mandalay Bay. As actions were taken to assemble a team of officers to apprehend the suspect, a dispatcher shared the name of the alleged shooter located in Room 32-135, along with three females that were reported to be in the room with Mr. Paddock. However, the names of those three women are redacted from the report, while the checkout date listed for the women aligns with Paddock’s planned check out date of October 2, 2017. In the log, as seen on page 26, the following was documented as having taken place at 11:02 pm the night of the shooting when police breached Paddock’s room. “Units in control room 32 135. Suspect name of K(P)addock, Stephen. There [are] three females in room.”

ISIS took credit, remember. But …

Nothing to see here, folks. Move on.

In the meantime, the OIG report will be released anon. Such suspense!

It’s like watching paint dry, or waiting to see Obama’s birth certificate.

    • I’m amazed that the kid won but doubt that he really won. He’s been humiliated, embarrassed, bullied, and made a pariah in his own school. There should be repercussions for the teacher and administrators who did this to him, but there won’t be. In a similar vein, though, did you see the story about the bakery that FIRED 2 white employees because they didn’t serve a known black activist who came into the store deliberately 6 minutes AFTER the store closed? Two white people were also not served and for the same reason, but the black person videotaped white customers inside who were allowed to stay because they’d been served BEFORE closing time. There’s a discrepancy, as usual, in the story: White people who came in after closing time were told they could have stuff TO GO, but not to eat inside because they were closed. Apparently the SAME was told to the black activist, but that person CHOSE not to take carry out. In any case, because of the publicity and despite that the employees were following policies, they were apparently fired for having implicit bias and being racists: Guilty and never proved innocent, even though the owners knew they were following policies. Nevertheless, they got the boot, just because the black person claimed to have been made to feel lesser. This is what the USA is coming to: Special treatment for special snowflakes and NO CONSIDERATION whatsoever for whites who WILL BE ALWAYS BLAMED AND ARE TO BE FOREVERMORE PUT INTO SECOND CLASS STATUS AND THEY’D BETTER LIKE IT, TOO, OR ELSE WILL BE LABELED RACISTS.

    • Do we believe that Lynch actually considered a defensive briefing for Trump’s campaign? WTF are they up to now?

    • It all begins to make sense and come together when you examine the timeline and remember that Trump announced Page, Carter, and Manafort as members of his team and then, within weeks, Rogers STOPPED the “outside contractors” from accessing the NSA database. This was March, 2016. In April, access was denied and they had to go to Plan B. Right after that Page/Strzok talk about how they’ve had to move from “Patriot Act” methodology to a “wire.” But think about this: Some outside contractor (Fusion? Crowdstrike? Maybe both?) were DELIBERATELY (according to court report) given access to 702 information. I think that means metadata–who’s talking to whom but not content. However, pinpointing the date and time makes it EASY for someone (Nellie via ham radio?) to then tell the UK spies which communications out of billions they want to hear details about. The wire could actually be that undersea cable that intel communities claim is beyond laws. I’m puzzling about why it was important for Mueller to establish that Papadopoulos lied about WHETHER he was a member of Trump’s team when first contacted by Mifsud. He first talked to him, yes, again, early March 2016. He became an announced member of the campaign in late March. So Mueller wants Papadopoulos to have BEEN a member of Trump’s team when he first met Mifsud. Why? Because if he’s not an actual member there can’t BE “collusion”? This would not be good for Mifsud, but of course nobody’s really going after this foreign SPY (according to DemoncRATS and Mueller and Comey). If he’s a SPY interfering in our election, targeting one of our campaigns, then why did the FBI not interview him until after Trump was POTUS and why did they then let him go (only to disappear)?

  1. O’ KIMMY’ …. like those ROCKETS were chump change?
    sure …DUDE …will keep the LIGHTS ON 4 ….”U” cheap-DICK!

  2. Kim Jong-un’s unbelievable life of ~ luxury lovemoney.com ~27/12/2016

    North Korea’s controversial supreme leader Kim Jong-un has an estimated $5 billion (£3.5 billion) at his disposal, according to the Huffington Post. The UN says this money should be spent on raising standards in this imporverished country and on its people but much of it isn’t. So what exactly does Kim spend a reported $600 million (£422B) a year on?

    While local alcohol is cheap & readily available, it clearly isn’t to Kim’s taste. Instead, he reportedly spends an average $30 million (£21M) each year on importing liquors into the country for his elite circles. His favorites are whisky Y cognac, but not just any brands. He prefers the more expensive kinds such as Hennessy which can cost up to $2,145 (£1,500) for the best bottle.

    Kim spares no expense when it comes to his diet. He’s been known to order in top quality pork from Denmark, caviar delivered from Iran, Chinese melon and steaks of Kobe beef, a Japanese delicacy. While the exact figure he spends on feeding himself & his inner circle the best cuisine in the world is not known, the sum is estimated to be in the millions.

    When you’ve got billions, it’s not likely that you’ll be found at your local store asking the cashier for the cigarettes from behind the counter. And that’s the case with Kim Jong-un, who splashes out on French designer cigarettes. The Yves Saint Laurent variety that he prefers sell for $44 (£31) per pack and the accompanying leather case to carry them in costs $165 (£115).

    Seeing as Kim is an avid basketball fan, it makes sense that he has befriended eccentric former NBA player Dennis Rodman, who has visited North Korea many times. It also comes as no surprise that Kim treats his guests to fine dining experiences, serving them the highest quality food & drink he can import.

    Although the development of this $35 million (£24M) Masikryong ski resort is supposedly to build-up North Korea’s tourism industry, the fact that Kim is a big fan of the sport is certainly likely to be a contributing factor. According to the Daily Mail, the resort is described by Kim himself as “impeccable”, boasting wood cabin rooms, a spa, restaurant & 70 miles (110km) of ski slopes.

    Most people will only ever dream of owning a yacht, but Kim Jong-un
    is the proud owner of a 200-foot yacht that was described by his friend Dennis Rodman as a “cross between a ferry and Disney boat”. The top-of-the-line Princess yacht is kitted out with a Fendi interior & is valued at a cool $8 million (£5.6M).

    Kim has been married to Ri Sol-jun since 2009 & has been known to spend state funds on buying her precious gifts like the Christian Dior handbag she’s been spotted with. Costing $1,457 (£1,017) in the region’s shopping centers, the bag comes close to trumping the annual income of the average North Korean which is a meager $1,800 (£1,256).

    Despite it being illegal to import films in North Korea, Kim has an impressive collection of 20,000 movies on DVD, many of them from the west. His film tastes are said to range from American classics like Rambo and Godzilla to Friday the 13th.

    And the leader doesn’t just settle for a couch and a TV to enjoy his massive film collection. He has his very own private luxury cinema that has a 1,000-seat capacity & is likely to have cost hundreds of thousands.

    Kim is rarely seen during public appearances without one of his many luxury watches adorning his wrist. The Telegraph newspaper has stated that his personal collection costs upwards of $8.2 million (£5.7M).

    It’s not only his wife Ri that enjoys the generous presents that Kim gifts. Apparently it pays off to be on the good side of the leader for more than one reason with 160 of his high-ranking officials all receiving top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz sedans back in 2010; generous gifts that are likely to have cost him a hefty $11.7million (£8.2M).

    The Telegraph reports that the textbooks taught in North Korean schools apparently claim that Kim was a child prodigy who learned how to drive at the tender age of 3 . Highly unlikely but what is true is that he has quite an impressive garage. It’s been reported that he owns up to 100 Cars after beginning to collect them at a very young age. His favorite brand is
    Mercedes-Benz. <<<<

    It’s no secret that Kim is not only feared but also disliked by a large majority of the repressed citizens of his country. This is likely the reason he felt a need to invest in an armored car for state visits. The luxury, customized Benz S600 is valued at a cost of $1.7 million (£1.2M) due to the protection tech it’s equipped with.

    Kim recently gave an inside glimpse at his newly re-vamped private jet aptly named Air Force Un – a punny reference to the United States’ Presidential aircraft, Air Force One. Having added luxurious touches like crystal ash trays and leather couches, the new look is a lot more lavish than the plane’s previously clinical interior and is likely to have cost him around $1.5 million (£1M).

    Having a custom-fitted private jet simply wasn’t enough for the North Korean leader. After vamping up his jets he proceeded to spend hundreds of thousands to build private runways beside his multiple palaces so that he didn’t have to travel too far before take-off.

    Kim Jong-un’s father Kim Jong-Il once claimed to have sunk eleven hole-in-ones during an outing on one of his courses. Kim Jong-Un has carried on his father's legacy of maintaining top-quality private golf courses. This hobby doesn’t come cheap, the average full-sized golf course costs about $3 million (£2M) to develop and $500,000 (£351,432) each year to keep running.

    Being the equine enthusiast he is, Kim doesn’t skimp on the funds he throws into the training facilities and upkeep of his thoroughbred horses. Shockingly, it’s reported that 20% of the state’s budget is spent on the upkeep of the animals & their facilities. This is a huge amount considering the nation’s last publicly shared budget was a mere $62 million (£44M) back in 2008.

    Typically, people have one piano in their homes. Kim, the king of excess, boasts a collection of over three dozen pianos, according to TIME, which can cost up to $64,451 (£45,300) each for top-of-the-line models.

    Whether it’s basketball, horseback riding or golf, Kim Jong-Un is quite the sports fanatic. His favorite team is reportedly the Harlem Globetrotters, so naturally he had them visit the country to have them perform for him. The amount paid to the team for their appearance isn’t known, but it’s bound to be noteworthy.

    Kim seems to be rather fond of unleashing his inner child, commissioning the development of the Pyongyang amusement park & the Munsu water park. However, once the Pyongyang attraction was completed news reports claimed that Kim slammed the park as being “pathetic” & “pitiful” when he did his inspection regardless of the estimated $100 million (£70M) price tag attached to it.

    There’s not one definitive answer to the question “Where does Kim Jong-Un live?” That’s because he has a staggering 17 palaces scattered throughout the state to choose from – & even his own private island.

    Although Kim is fond of spending cash on luxury items for his own enjoyment, when it comes to North Korea’s army the budget is much smaller than he would have the world believe. Based on 2008 data made public, the military budget was a measly $8.7 million (£6.1M), which pales in comparison to the $600 million (£422B) that Kim splashes out on himself, his family & on his inner circle.

    North Korea’s controversial supreme leader Kim Jong-un has an estimated $5 billion (£3.5 billion) at his disposal, according to the Huffington Post. The UN says this money should be spent on raising standards in this imporverished country & on its people but much of it isn’t. So what exactly does Kim spend a reported $600 million (£422B) a year on?

    How does the eccentric leader spend his fortune? ….REALLY NOW!

    • Name a third-world, so-called “communist” dictator who does NOT live large! It’s why Barry is so enamored of them. He’s got his, though, doesn’t he? No longer necessary to PRETEND to be poor, owing those college debts, etc. He’s a millionaire now, if not a billionaire. Soon to be, anyway, no doubt. Wonder what goodies THEY took from the WH? Has anybody seen that jewelry the muslims famously gave to Mooch?

    • THAT sounds like fake news and I hate those things that show you one little item and then you have to hit “next” to see the next and usually it ends before it ever lives up to the tease at the beginning, if it ever even addresses it. Did DT REALLY say FLOTUS is leaving the WH?

    • Keep your friends close and your enemies …

      Word is DT will have a ramadan meal at the WH. Hopefully he’ll be able to find some truly peaceful members of the religion of peace.

  3. The coziness among Obama, Jarrett, Abedin, the Muslim Brotherhood, & other radical Islamic terrorist groups is a historical fact a& should not be obscured by a bigoted tweet. ……^^^^^

  5. When I first heard the Laura Loomer interview with Jason Goodman last week, the first words from witnesses at the onslaught came to mind: a woman was warning people in the front rows to get out because they were all going to die.

  6. Here’s an intereting announcement from Orly

    Press release: Chair of Intelligence Committee of Congress is very interested in investigating Rod Rosenstein’s collusion in cover up of Obama’s use of a stolen CT Social Security number

    On Sunday June 3rd Attorney Orly Taitz, President of Defend Our Freedoms Foundation, got to talk to the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA).

    Taitz advised Nunes about her work and FOIA legal action filed in the US District Court of MD in relation to Obama using a CT Social Security number xxx-xx-4425, which was traced to Harrison J. Bounel. Taitz found this number when Obama posted his 2009 tax returns on WhiteHouse.gov and originally did not properly redact the number. Taitz advised Nunes that Obama was never a resident of Connecticut and there is no legitimate reason for him to have a CT Social Security number, he should have had a Social Securty number from Hawaii. The first three digits of the number signified the state where the applicant resided, until Obama randomized them in 2011. Obama’s SSN starts with 042, which is assigned to Connecticut, not Hawaii.

    Taitz stated to Nunes that the left claims that Michael Cohen was a fixer for Trump, but it appears that Rod Rosenstein was a fixer for Obama. Rosenstein was the US attorney for Maryland, where the Social Security administration is located and where the Freedom of Information case against them had to be filed. Rosenstein’s name is on the pleadings.

    well anyways, according to that q guy, it’s supposed to be a big week.

    Related note: Will the OIG report be even more watered down that you’d expect? It is long past time for a special counsel to investigate all this DOJ/FBI/intel “community” corruption.

  8. Hi Miri,
