Fool Me Once: Failed Arkady Babchenko Psyop Further Exposes Atrocity Propaganda of the West

by Scott Creighton

Atrocity propaganda is the spreading of information about the crimes committed by an enemy, which can be factual, but often includes or features deliberate fabrications or exaggerations. This can involve photographs, videos, illustrations, interviews, and other forms of information presentation & reporting. It is frequently used as part of psychological warfare campaigns as well as to rally popular support against real atrocities, and distinguishing between the two applications can be very difficult.

The Arkady Babchenko story is just the latest example of a type of psychological warfare campaign (see unconventional warfare ch. 6-1) and irregular warfare) being run by our assets in the endless Global War OF Terror campaign, what they now call the Global Contingency Operation or what I call the Global Free Market Wars.

Atrocity propaganda has been used by nations to demonize an enemy and turn a population toward the acceptance of war for almost as long war has existed. In the U.S. it was especially popular in WWI but used with much less frequency in the following world war mainly because it had been exposed to a great extent in the years following the first (see Creel Commission and the Committee on Public Information) and a people who were understandably eager to avoid another major war were acutely aware of what it looked and smelled like.

During World War II, atrocity propaganda was not used on the same scale as in World War I, as by then it had long been discredited by its use during the previous conflict.[26]

It’s the story of the boy who cried wolf. When the war propagandists go to the well once too often with their copy and paste “hearts and minds” campaigns (see Army War College (PDF)), the people become not only indifferent to their manipulations but also angered at the attempt to manipulate them… once again. The “Fool me once” phenomenon sets in.

The Arkady Babchenko Psyop: Murdered Yesterday, Fine Today… Admits it was Ukrainian Ploy

by Scott Creighton

Arkady Babchenko is a “journalist” residing in Ukraine at the moment. He used to live in Russia and made it his life’s work to help bring about another neoliberal regime change the likes that brought the Russian people Boris Yeltsin back in the day. That is part of our regime change program. We use the for-profit media outlets in targeted nations to start promoting disinformation and outright lies about their current leadership in order to turn the population against them. Major corporations typically own the media in these countries and we can exert pressure on them to appease our regime change interests. When the government cracks down on the local media publishing lies and trying to inflame the people against their government, we call it an attack on the “free” press. We’ve done it many times, most recently in Turkey making ready for that regime change operation.

Yesterday, Reuters, the Associated Press and pretty much every other complicit media outlet announced Arkady had been murdered and they all implied it was the evil Vladamir Putin and those darn Godless commie Rooskies that did it.

Youtube Censoring My Latest Video on Gaza: it isn’t violating community guidelines but it is “controversial” according to the ADL I guess

by Scott Creighton (H/T AuntBB)

UPDATE: Here’s a video of “Tommy Robinson” hanging out with some skin-heads of the EDL saying things like “Send the Black C***s Home” referring to immigrants in England. One might think that kind of language would incite violence in that crowd against people of color, right? But apparently the video hasn’t been flagged and hasn’t even been given one of those warnings that my video just received. And that video has been up since 2013. Hmmm. Curious, right?

A couple hours ago I recorded myself reading the article I wrote this morning on the situation in Gaza. I then posted that on Youtube. This is the article:

Under the Cover of “Tommy Robinson” and Roseanne’s Racism, Israel Continues Ethnic Cleansing Operation in Gaza

Go ahead and read the article if you haven’t already. There are no calls for violence toward anyone. It is not promoting violence. It is not celebrating terrorism. It’s just news on what is happening in Gaza and my feelings toward how the complicit media are ignoring it.

I posted the video and took a nap. When I woke up, I checked my Twitter feed to see what was going on in the world and I found this:

When Democracy Rears its Head in Italy, Globalists Attack

The idea that a democratic government is of the people, by the people and for the people is apparently a treasonous concept in our neoliberalized West. Italy is just the most recent example of citizens voting the wrong way.

When Democracy Rears its Head in Italy, Horrified Oligarchs and their Apologists Move to Kill it

by Scott Creighton (H/T Stephen)

populism – support for the concerns of ordinary people”

The other day I published this:

Two CFR Videos Expose Hatred of Populism and Fear of an Interconnected, Uncensored Participatory Public

With the possible exception of Gaza and the demonization of Hamas and as informative as that piece I wrote the other day was, there is no better current example of just how much our masters (our oligarchs) and their apologists (our complicit media) hate democracy than what is happening right now in Italy.

To get you up to speed: on March 4th of this year, a Parliamentary election was held in Italy and two formerly unimportant political parties won a SWEEPING mandate… for populism.

“The 4 March election resulted in a hung parliament but it was the two populist groups – for years seen as outliers in domestic and international politics – that emerged strongest. The M5S, with 32% of the vote, emerged as the party with the most support following a sweep of southern Italy. The League won 18%, outperforming the traditional leader of the centre-right coalition in Italy, Forza Italia.” The Guardian

In the election, 50% of all votes were cast for two political parties that promised support for the concerns of the ordinary people of Italy and also swore to oppose neoliberalism in all its forms, potentially even pulling the nation out of the EU and getting them off the Euro.

“Both populisms raked up support with Europhobic slogans and concepts of a revolt of “the people” against the “elites”

They predict an apocalyptic future for a public already frightened of globalisation and impoverished by European austerity policies...

The coalition “contract” that these populists want to implement includes not only massive public spending, which would break the budget and push Italy out of EU rules, but also the creation of specific crimes for immigrants and forced mass repatriations, as well as the closure of asylum centres and all Roma camps. The limits of legitimate self-defence are to be extended to include confronting burglars with weapons in hand.” The Guardian

Imagine that. After years of cuts to public services and brutal austerity measures that are crippling the general population (as admitted by the Guardian writer), the Italians have voted IN THEIR OWN INTERESTS in opposition to the neoliberalism imposed on them by globalists and their Chicago Boys technocrats.

What do they want? More public spending to get the economy back on track FOR EVERYONE, sending the weapons of mass migration BACK HOME TO THEIR NATIONS OF ORIGIN and the closure of WORK CAMPS set up by the neoliberal government who are using these migrants basically as slave labor for various crony businesses and favored international conglomerates.

They would also like to be able to defend themselves and their homes from invaders with weapons… if that’s OK with the globalists.

Doesn’t seem like too much too ask, does it? I mean, after all, government is supposed to work FOR THE PEOPLE right? Right?

Under the Cover of “Tommy Robinson” and Roseanne’s Racism, Israel Continues Ethnic Cleansing Operation in Gaza

by Scott Creighton

Here is a list of the Israeli casualties from the “attack” from Gaza. It’s mostly bruises folks received while running for cover and a couple others suffering anxiety attacks.

Six people suffered light contusions running to shelters due to southern region alarms, and were taken to the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.

Two people who suffered anxiety attacks were also taken to the hospital.

In total, three Sderot residents, three Netiv HaAsara residents and two Ashkelon residents were taken to the southern city’s hospital.

They were all since released, except for one person who was hospitalized due to a leg wound” YNET (Israeli source)

The “attack” from Gaza was so horrible… Israeli officials didn’t even bother closing schools around Gaza today.

“Despite the alarms blaring throughout the night, authorities  decided schools would operate normally in all of the Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip.” YNET (Israeli source)

Israelis were terrified because air-raid sirens were going off all across the region. Turned out most of them were false alarms probably meant to terrify their own people in order to make it seem more dangerous than it really was.

Multiple Code Red sirens blared in the early morning Wednesday in communities in the Eshkol, Sha’ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev regional councils, preceded by sirens sounding all through the night as well in the aforementioned councils as well as at the Bnei Shimon and Merhavim regional councils and the cities of Ashkelon and Netivot

Some of the rockets launched at Sha’ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev were intercepted by the Iron Dome, the army added. The remaining alarms triggered were false alarms.” YNET (Israeli source)

If we put all that info together I have to wonder how many of those injuries listed above, the bruises and anxiety attacks, were caused by the “false alarms” sounded in Eshkol, Bnei Shimon and Merhavim regional councils and the cities of Ashkelon and Netivot.

By contrast, this is what Israel has bombed in the last two days.

The hasbara propaganda machine has dictated to their apologists in Washington and the complicit media that everything Israel hits is a “terror target”
