They explore the allegations and why a large portion of the report is dedicated to RT America’s programming. RT correspondent Anya Parampil details the charges made in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence report.

  1. The best propaganda is that which, as it were, works invisibly, penetrates the whole of life without the public having any knowledge of the propagandist initiative.
    (Joseph Goebbels)

    The campaign to discredit Trump by raising the fake Russian interference with US politics is not to ultimately dispose of the Trump administration, but rather to lead the public into believing that the immanent decline of the US (which Trump tries steadfastly to prevent by shoring up its failing industries) is due to outside factors, i.e. a threatening Russia that absorbs the military wealth of the US in its ephemeral conquests. It is one of the oldest tactics to divert public opinion in order to stay the course of a declining status quo. It is also the best barometer to measure the state of the decline, which appears to be already in an advanced shape judging from the national debt which cannot any longer be backed by the productivity and marketability of its products (due to strong outside competition). By unproductive money manipulation and holding other societies within its grasp of credit extension of the reserve currency (threatened now by the hollowness of its strength) it must in consequence immiserate not only those countries within its sphere of influence but also its own population in order to survive (‘parasitic governance’). Military saber rattling (not much else remains to shore up its waning powers) serves thus to keep its population in a continuing state of suspense about the interference by a closest available and believable ‘antagonist’. And what better example than a nation that chose socialism rather than the oligarchic structure of the US ? If it were not there already for exploitation by US propaganda since the early twentieth century Russia would have to be invented.
