Spanish Radio station to beam Chinese Propaganda

 

The latest propaganda move of the chinese to control our media. But let us not forget what happened during the fading halcyon days of the Obama administration.

 

Apparently Jeff Sessions is still down Mexico way looking for gang bangers since Rosenstein had to take care of this business.

The Justice Department probe into the radio deal reflects stepped up efforts by the administration to counter foreign influence operations.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced last month that both the department and FBI are targeting foreign disinformation and influence operations, through prosecutions, counterintelligence operations, and other legal measures.

“Influence operations are a form of information warfare,” Rosenstein said during a security conference in Colorado. “Covert propaganda and disinformation are among the primary weapons.”

 

Recall during the waning days of the Obama administration we had this:

FCC Approves Foreign Takeover of U.S. Broadcasters

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on September 29th did something worse than give up control of the Internet. They voted unanimously to put America’s entire broadcast industry on the fast track to a foreign takeover by Chinese, Russian or Muslim Brotherhood front corporations.

This new FCC rule gives foreign interests the long sought-after tools they need to shape U.S. public opinion and to censor the opposition.

Once a foreign corporation scoops up a media business, such as a chain of radio stations, it can eliminate national and local programming and substitute its own government’s propaganda. That means that conservative talkers could find themselves off the air.

Citing the need for “change” from the old “vintage” laws, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel declared that “laws that govern broadcast investment can get in the way.”

So, rather than respect the law and Congress, the FCC decided in a 5 to 0 vote to decree a new “rule” that effectively guts a law that protected Americans from foreign interests and their propaganda. The new rule assumes that any foreign owner of a TV or radio broadcaster will be acceptable unless someone can prove otherwise.

The FCC in one of the most obscene votes in 2016. And we worry about Donald and Russia Russia Russia?? Note Clyburn’s daughter is on the commission as well as other members affiliations.

 

 

But this wasn’t the first:

 

China Radio International

You think? I first posted about this in 2010:  China buys U.S Radio Station – What’s next…let’s see how this goes:

It is the first U.S. station to broadcast CRI programing 24 hours a day, although the network has purchased blocks of time on U.S. stations at least since 1993.

 

 

 

Now the latest:  Mexican Radio to beam Chinese Propaganda

 

A large Spanish-language radio station in Mexico will soon begin broadcasting in Chinese in a deal critics say will bring Beijing propaganda to Chinese Americans throughout Southern California.

 

A Federal Communications Commission filing on the sale of radio station XEWW AM 690 radio near Tijuana reveals the buyer has ties to Phoenix Satellite Television US, a subsidiary of Hong Kong’s pro-Beijing Phoenix TV.

According to government sources, signs that Phoenix is involved in the purchase of the radio station prompted the Trump administration last week to begin an investigation into the national security implications of the sale.

Phoenix TV has been identified by U.S. intelligence agencies as a major overseas outlet used to spread propaganda and promote the policies of the communist government in Beijing. The Hong Kong television station also has close ties to China’s intelligence service and military.

Netflix bans employees from looking at each other for more than five seconds

 

George Orwell’s 1984 has arrived. I first thought this was from The Onion and a spoof..but no. The thought police are here. When will this nonsense end?

Netflix has reportedly banned workers from looking at each other for more than five seconds as part of its new anti-harassment rules.

The new policy also bans the company’s film crews from asking their colleagues for their phone numbers, according to an article in the Sun.

“Senior staff went to a harassment meeting to learn what is and isn’t appropriate,” an on-set runner told the Sun. “Looking at anyone longer than five seconds is considered creepy.”

“You mustn’t ask for someone’s number unless they have given permission for it to be distributed,” the source continued. “And if you see any unwanted behaviour, report it immediately.”

Other new rules include: “Don’t give lingering hugs or touch anyone for a lengthy period of time,” “Don’t ask out a colleague more than once if they have said no,” “Steer clear of a colleague once they have said they are not interested in you,” and “Don’t flirt.” The rules also encourage employees to “Shout ‘Stop, don’t do that again!’ if a colleague has been inappropriate.”

Calling an innocent six-second glance “harassment” trivializes the very real struggles of those who are actually harassed, and a no-phone-numbers rule is going to make it more difficult for employees to communicate. More at National Review

Clinton: ‘Norms have changed for what you can do to somebody against their will’

 

While the events of the day have overtaken Bill Clinton’s latest view on the #Me Two Movement and the removal of Al Franken – supporting Franken in the full interview, this one tidbit below should not go without notice. The unhappy looking sidekick in the form of the real author of the so called Clinton novel, flails desperately at times to bail out his Kemosabe. The Lone Ranger rides again.

 

 

It’s probably time for Bill Clinton to stop doing interviews.

The former president has come under fire once again for comments he made during a recent sit-down — this time noting how “norms have changed in terms of what you can do to somebody against their will.”

Clinton made the controversial statement while speaking to PBS Newshour about the resignation of former Senator Al Franken last year following his sexual misconduct scandal.

“I assume you think that what happened with you was more serious than what happened with [Franken],” host Judy Woodruff asked Clinton. “He was driven from office, from the US Senate. So, norms have changed. Do you think that’s a good thing?”

“Well, in general, I think it’s a good thing, yes,” replied the former president.

“I think it’s a good thing that we should all have higher standards,” he said. “I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will, how much you can crowd their space, make them miserable at work.”

Clinton added, “You don’t have to physically assault somebody to make them, you know, uncomfortable at work or at home or in their other — just walking around. That, I think, is good.”

NBC Interview blind sides Bill Clinton with Lewinsky questions

Adding another post for today… first time media takes on the Clintons.  Mika on Morning Joe thought it was time for the Clintons to go away. Good idea. Bill was out there spinning another book and thought he was in for an easy interview apparently. Enjoy the clip. I added Mika’s take on it.

 

Former President Bill Clinton insisted in a weekend interview that he doesn’t owe a personal apology to Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern whose adult life has been defined by their inappropriate sexual affair and the global scrutiny that followed.

‘No,’ he told NBC in an interview airing Monday on the ‘Today’ show. ‘I do not – I have never talked to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry.’

‘I apologized to everybody in the world,’ Clinton said, implying that was enough.

And the flustered former president, more famous for his Don Juan-like seductions than for his policy legacy, portrayed himself, not Lewinsky, as history’s victim in the mass-media’s retelling of the 1990s saga.

 

 

Obama and Hillary’s right hand man Ben Rhodes joins NBC MSNBC as contributor

Isn’t this swell? We have Clapper and John Brennan as paid hacks for the networks. Now we have Ben Rhodes. Hillary’s right hand man for all things Hillary. This addition of Ben Rhodes to the very echo chamber he joked about has to be the worst of it. For some background FP post:

A stunning profile of Ben Rhodes – the asshole who is the Presidents foreign policy guru

 

The profile of one Ben Rhodes running in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine is not unsympathetic, which makes it all the more devastating.

Perhaps the key sentence is this: “His lack of conventional real-world experience of the kind that normally precedes responsibility for the fate of nations — like military or diplomatic service, or even a master’s degree in international relations, rather than creative writing — is still startling.”

 

Former top Barack Obama White House aide Ben Rhodes is joining MSNBC and NBC News as a political contributor.

MSNBC’s media relations team tweeted out the announcement Saturday, saying Rhodes would make his NBC debut on Sunday on “Meet The Press.”

Rhodes’ official title in the Obama administration was Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, and he played key roles in numerous foreign policy decisions. He took heat in 2016 when he boasted in a New York Times profile of creating an “echo chamber” to sell the Iran nuclear deal and mocked Washington, D.C., reporters.

Trudeau thinks he will win a trade war with the U.S.???

 

So Trudeau says he won’t play because Trump thinks it would be a good idea if we held on to our Steel industry for the sake of National security. We once had 18 steel companies. Now down to two. Everyone dumping steel on the U.S.

Canada who has enjoyed the benefits of our military and spends a teeny tiny amount on defense. Yes, they do send some troops to our various misadventures, often with restrictions.

I couldn’t resist this clip on a Saturday.

 

….Trudeau said he refused to go because of the “totally unacceptable” precondition. He made the comment while outlining Canada’s response to U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

Late today, President Donald Trump responded in a statement released by the White House, “Earlier today, this message was conveyed to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada: The United State (sic) will agree to a fair deal, or there will be no deal at all.”

This fellow thinks he is going to win a trade war with trump? Don’t make me laugh.

Was Lolita Express Jeffrey Epstein an informant for Mueller’s FBI?

 

Famed Lolita Express Jeffrey Epstein was an informant. For what? Another creep in the quick sand of the swamp that seems to deepen every day.

For something different, let’s change it up for a Friday with this post! Tape is from 2017.

Was pedophile Jeffrey Epstein an informant for Mueller’s FBI? From the 5/24/18 FBI Vault release: “Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agree upon.” Is that why he escaped serious charges for molesting over twenty girls? H/T:  News Alert
