Do you suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome? – LA Times

Justin Raimondo

The country is in the throes of a major epidemic, with no known cure and some pretty scary symptoms. It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS, and it’s rapidly spreading from the point of origin – the political class – to the population at large.

In the first stage of the disease, victims lose all sense of proportion. The president-elect’s every tweet provokes a firestorm, as if 140 characters were all it took to change the world.

Trump set up a single phone call with Taiwan’s president, and suddenly TDS patients were insisting that our “One China” policy was no more. But the reality is that telephonic communication isn’t the same thing as official diplomatic recognition. Besides, in their eagerness to highlight Trump’s alleged recklessness, the president-elect’s critics misunderstand our policy. “One China” means that we don’t recognize Taiwan as a sovereign country or China’s sovereignty over Taiwan. We’ve never considered Taiwan a mere province, and the Taiwan Relations Act obligates us to defend the island against attack.

Activist Post Admits To Being Russian Propaganda

By Activist Post

Activist Post has been accused of being fake news and Russian propaganda by the Washington Post and others.

It’s about time we admit it. Whoever’s behind PropOrNot figured us out. Putin is our homeboy.

A few years ago, after editing our free blog, we were riding horses with Vlad, shirtless, when he pleaded, “Will you help me stop Clinton from becoming president?”

“No problem.” we replied. “We’ll direct all of our friends in the fake news to help too.”

Images flashed through our mind of conspiring with Alex Jones and Ron Paul to determine the dank memes and clickbait headlines we’re going to weaponize.

“But, Vlad, we don’t have a big foundation to launder the money through, so you’ll have to pay us another way,” we greedily inquired.

“How about I pay you in bitcoin and hot Russian hookers? They’re former gymnasts,” he offered with a knowing wink. We struck a deal!

Due to the influx of Russian funds, we were able to upgrade from a free Blogger site to WordPress and hire a part-time social media manager.

Ever since then, we’ve been working around the clock to promote peace and liberty, and especially to thwart the United States’ aggressive, preemptive wars against sovereign nations.

Apparently, that was enough to threaten the state and the established media. Putin thought it would be more difficult.

Damn, I hope that doesn’t mean we risk losing Google Ads and the hookers. That would really suck.

Breaking news: Experts say Putin injecting journalists with nonsense-inducing substance — Don’t Panic! Lighten Up! — Sott.net

Rob Slane

Experts believe that Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has possibly discovered a substance which, when injected into journalists, causes them to write utter drivel. Suspicions have been growing for some time that Mr Putin has been developing such a chemical, but what once might have been consigned to the realm of conspiracy theories can, according to the experts, no longer be dismissed.

Confirmation that the theory might be true gained credibility after several media outlets published pieces alleging that Mr Putin has managed to poison Democratic Party nominee, Hillary Clinton. The London Metro, for instance, ran a piece entitled, “Trump and Putin poisoned Hillary Clinton, warns top doctor” whilst the Washington Post ran with the headline “The man who discovered CTE thinks Hillary Clinton may have been poisoned,” before going on to implicate both Mr Trump and Mr Putin.

According to one expert we talked to, there are several tell-tale signs that readers should look out for in news pieces for signs that Putin might be behind them:

One thing to look out for is the use of ‘experts’ to add credibility to the piece, without ever telling us who they are or why we should believe them. Another sign is the existence of words and phrases like ‘possibly’, ‘probably’, ‘might have’, and ‘maybe’. This shows that the journalist really doesn’t know what they are talking about, has no hard facts to back up what they’re saying, but mysteriously they appear compelled to say it anyway. That such journalism has been on the rise recently is not really in dispute, but the question is who is behind it?”

According to the expert, there is probably only one candidate:

“The evidence points to Mr Putin who, as is well known, possibly has a desire to subvert mainstream journalism, and probably has the means to do it. He also might have a motive and therefore maybe responsible for a good many cases of bad journalism.”
