UK, US, Canada INTEL: Russians hacking VACCINES & ELECTIONS (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 600.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the never ending Russian hacking narrative, this time US, UK and Canadian intelligence issued a 16-page report on accusing “Russian hackers” of targeting unspecified entities involved in developing a Covid-19 vaccine.

Meanwhile British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab claimed that Russians meddled in last year’s UK election by “amplifying” leaked documents that revealed a potential post-Brexit trade deal with the US.

Of course no real evidence was provided to support these various hacking claims.

Via Off-Guardian…

he Guardian, and all the other predictable voices, are currently reporting that Russian “state sponsored hackers” have been attempting to steal “medical secrets” from British pharmaceutical researchers.

At this stage they offer no substantiation, but it does serve as good teaching exercise in the techniques of modern propagandists.

First the lack of evidence. Observe the Guardian article, note the complete absence of sources or references. There’s not a link in sight. There’s no content there beyond the parroted words of UK government officials, whose honesty and/or competence is never interrogated.

Second, the lies by omission. They don’t mention, for example, the Vault 7 revelations from Wikileaks that the CIA/Pentagon have developed technology to make one of their own cyber-attacks appear to come from anywhere in the world, Russia obviously included. This is clearly vital information.

Third, the multitasking. When you splash a huge red lie on your front pages, it’s always best to make it serve several agendas at once. In fact, an unsupported statement which serves multiple state-backed narratives at the same time is one of the telltale signs of propaganda.

With this one completely unverified claim, the Guardian – or rather the people who tell the Guardian what to say – back up three narratives:

  1. The further demonisation of an “enemy”. Russia is portrayed as pursuing “selfish interests with reckless behaviour”, whilst we (and our allies) are “getting on with the hard work of finding a vaccine and protecting global health.”
  2. Promoting the vaccine. The vaccine is coming. It will likely be mandatory, it will certainly have been insufficiently tested, if tested at all. They need some pro-vaccine advertising, and nothing sells better than “our vaccine is so good, people are trying to steal it”.
  3. Most importantly – Enhancing the idea that Sars-Cov-2 is a unique global threat which puts us all in danger. The unspoken assumption is that Russia needs to steal our research because the virus is so dangerous we all need to be afraid of it…despite it beingharmless to the vast majority of people.

Whether it’s the (totally unsubstantiated) allegation that Russia put bounties on NATO servicemen in Afghanistan, or the (very predictable) “leak” that “Russian interference” was backing Corbyn in the general election, it’s clear that any Globalist deal on the coronavirus is dead and buried, and it’s very much open season on Putin’s Russia again.

Nothing shows just how much the Guardian has become the voice of the Deep State more than its coverage of anything Russia-related. And nothing serves as a better exemplar of how modern propaganda works.

If only hot air were the worst of it. At least you could still manage to breath it, barely.

Don’t worry. Crowd Strike will find it and Adam Schiff will announce it to the world, then months later, Crowd Strike in a muffled deposition chamber isolated from the public will declare that they really didn’t find anything. You know, the usual stuff.

Ye gods! Goodness how embarrassing is this garbage spewing out of the mouths of the most third rate bunch of ministers we’ve had. A complete buffoon as Prime Minister with yapping at his heels a truly ghastly hodge-podge of media led by the BBC (which we are forced to fund on pain of imprisonment). One thought no one could be worse than Teresa May, but Boris has gone down to a new level. Incidentally an I right that one of the main authors of the ‘Russiagate’ report is one Christopher Steele? How Vlad the Bad must he chortling as Britain… Read more »

The only way this story could be true is if Ghislaine Maxwell sold all her photos and videos to Putin just before she got arrested.

I do worry that The Duran makes the same catastrophic mistake that many other outlets do in assuming that the constant drip drip drip of anti Russian or Chinese stories do not matter, because the general public are not worried about them. We recently had the ‘Russian bounty on NATO soldiers lives’ story, backed by nothing but anonymous sources, and yet huge swathes of the population believed it because that is what Russia/China do. Why do they think that? – probably because they receive a constant stream of propaganda confirming it. One day the issue will be important, maybe a… Read more »

They DO matter and matter a lot. What these bat crazy demos (& repubs too) are both doing with their bellicose rhetoric is painting themselves into a corner where, no matter who wins in November, there’ll be no way out and civil war, hyper-war abroad or both.

These people are lunatics. Honest to God, bona fide lunatics. Run as fast as you can.

It would be interesting to know just what the level of interest the “great unwashed” place on such news. Looking at Google trends (https://trends.google.com/trends/?geo=US) and YouTube Trends (https://www.youtube.com/trends/), for example shows “0” interest.

Why does UK need a comprehensive trade deal with the US? Firstly, the US will likely take the UK to cleaners in any such deal and secondly,if anytime in the future the US feels that such a deal is not monstrously in their favour, they will simply break it. The US is in real strife for as far forward as can reasonably be predicted. They have just returned the worst EVER monthly deficit :$864 billion in June 2020, up from the previous worst ever deficit in April , $738 bn. The Congressional Budget Office has predicted these deficits will lead… Read more »

Absurd on its face. A one-way deal only, designed to feed more twinkies and other American staples of quality to the British hordes.

That is exactly what the free trade agreement did with Australia – The US took it to the cleaners. The US can export everything while Australia has difficulties selling toothpick over there.

And Canada and Mexico as well. NEVER trust the US with anything. “Free” trade deals are not free for anyone doing business with the snakes.

DEMOCRACY — A RICH NOBILITY PARADISE
Since the rise and fall of the Roman Empire and in all Western nations, the more educated and mostly white upper-half of society has hoarded all the land, wealth and political power.
So, conservatives are the 25% most wealthy in society, liberals are the 25% educated middle-class and together they keep the 50% working-poor powerless by poverty and enslaved by legalized killers called cops.
And so, the 50% working-poor never vote, allowing the 25% most wealthy to be the voting majority and the ruling rich nobility.
