#Panamapapers Leak and MSM as Weapon of Mass Disinformation: Info War vs. #Putin, #Russia, #BRICS Escalates
I was asked to comment on the Panama papers leak published in German media, as well as on new anti-Putin stuff in the Guardian and other UK papers. Frankly, I don’t even pay attention to that silly buzz. Don’t we know enough about how they operate? Who is still naive enough to read MSM and to believe anything they say?
Me, I merely shrug my shoulders. But since my readers demand I weigh in…
My response is very simple:
As far as I understand, the Panama papers leak is the most massive leak there ever was – bigger than Snowden leak. It mentions money laundering, tax evasion and offshore accounts by various world leaders, dictators, oligarchs and public figures. Ukraine’s president Poroshenko, Saudi king, Pakistani officials and David Cameron (or is it his father – apple doesn’t fall far from the tree?) made the list.
Nowhere in 11.5 million documents is there anything about Vladimir Putin. Yet, every Western MSM and Qatar’s Al Jazeera (both the state and publication some of the biggest US stooges) printed big Putin’s pictures on top of every article dedicated to Panama leaks, although articles were about someone else.
Interestingly enough, various UK publications printed Putin’s pics in their articles, implying Putin is the biggest money launderer there is, while THEIR OWN PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON is front and center on the list, along with his daddy!
This isn’t double standards and hypocrisy any more, of which US, UK and West in general get accused every day. This is lunacy and severe case of schizophrenia – a good mental institution very strongly recommended. Is it any wonder that their own readers rebel against such idiocy. I hear that after a public outcry, within several hours of publication, UK papers began removing Putin’s photos from their articles.
Let me emphasize that this post isn’t about the veracity and merit of #Panamapapers leaks. In my view, we need as much as possible disclosure of truth on all levels. But it has to be unbiased and honest truth. While the actual leak may be absolutely beyond reproach, the problem is the attempt to turn it into anti-Putin, anti-Russia, anti-BRICS circus.
What US, UK and other MSM do is this: they take the truth and then bait and switch it with a lie convenient to them, parading it as truth.
Come think of it… this may be done deliberately so that to distract the gullible public from asking inconvenient questions as to where the Western leaders’ and oligarchs’ money is hidden.
LADA RAY PREDICTIONS
This is global info war of unheard of proportions. This info war is part of the larger hybrid war. I call it 4D WAR, or, fourth-dimensional warfare. This is the kind of war that is conducted not in the realm of physical, but in the realm of the mind, as well as in cyberspace.
Lots of FREE info here: read about 4D wars and more on LadaRay.info.
Watch Earth Shift Report to see how 4D warfare works: ESR4: ALIEN TECHNOLOGY & NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS
We are in the period of the Great Earth Shift. Therefore, relentless attacks on Putin, Russia and anyone else attempting to shift to the new global set up, new global reality, will continue and intensify; such countries and leaders will continue being mercilessly attacked on all levels. Ukraine 2014 coup and recent Brazilian color revolution attempt are in this category (read Brazil Color Revolution Attempt: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, 2016 Olympics and the BRICS. Lada Ray Report and Predictions).
New escalation of Nagorny Karabakh war between Azerbaijan and Armenia is another manifestation of this global 4D hybrid war. Article coming up on that!
What did you expect? They are losing and they know time is short. They will use any means necessary. Obviously, they won’t dare attack Russia directly. They will use proxies and clandestine weapons. What is the West good at? MSM propaganda – definitely. They will continue using this weapon for as long as they can.
I predict that info wars with the usage of Western MSM, as well as certain alternative media, for the purposes of attacks against Russia, China and the BRICS will continue intensifying during this decade. So, be careful what sources you trust and who you listen to!
I also predict that the people everywhere, but in this case, specifically in the West, will continue awakening. They will trust their MSM less and less, resulting in said MSM becoming less and less effective in their propaganda.
Get ready for even more filthy lies, more gloves off fights, ugly sensationalist falsehoods, and more.
The danger for those who are past trusting MSM is more in the fact that certain ‘alternative media’ got infiltrated with a more shrewdly camouflaged propaganda. Some of it is deliberate infiltration and some is simple ignorance/ lack of true knowledge. I won’t name names – you know it’s not my style. I just advise my readers to use discretion.
The topics of hoaxes, targeted info dumps and lies about Putin and Russia are discussed in-depth here:
Ask yourself, why is US completely excluded from the list? Video with world map of those implicated.
Here is a demo of how public called out the lie by UK papers and closely related to them Al Jazeera about Putin in regards to Panama leak. In the end of this piece notice the involvement of Soros and USAID!
Quoted from RT.com:
Pictures of President Putin could be found on the front pages of highly respected news publications around the globe. TheGuardian and the Mail Online were both at it, despite the fact that in the 11.5 million documents that were published; Putin’s name was not mentioned once.
Newspapers around the globe had plenty of world leaders to choose from: President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko managed to find his way on to the list, as did King Salman of Saudi Arabia. The father of British Prime Minister David Cameron was also among those mentioned. Despite these high-profile figures, the majority of the international media decided to accuse Putin of corruption. And even if the article itself was not about Putin, the cover picture suggested otherwise.

After several hours, Putin’s pictures were removed from the front pages of a number of top internet publications, such as the Guardian and the Independent, which could have been down to the storm of criticism on social media, at the hypocrisy of publishing the photo of someone who was not even named in the report.
@businessinsider: You state that Putin isn’t listed yet you proceed to use his photo. Western anti-Putin propaganda machinery in full swing!

“You state that Putin isn’t listed yet you proceed to use his photo. Western anti-Putin propaganda machinery in full swing!”Mothibi Phosa II commeted on a Business Insider article.
A Facebook user accused the BBC of “anti-Russian propaganda” and complained that “Joseph Goebbels had less biased news articles,” in regards to the fact that the BBC published an article about Putin, despite the Russian leader not being named.
One user asked why the Independent was using a photograph of Syrian President Bashar Assad alongside President Putin, when neither man was mentioned in the trove of documents.
In response, another Twitter user stated: “Because they don’t want to blame ‘friends’ like King Salman or Poroshenko…”

One Twitter user said it was “tiresome” that Putin was being linked with everything, while mainstream media was ignoring that “Cameron has been linked.”
Another Twitter user accused the BBC of being the “British Brainwashing Channel” for not mentioning David Cameron, while wondering whether this was “against national interest?”

The smear campaign against Putin comes a week after his press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that the Western media intended to launch a new slander attack against the Russian president, while he also expressed regret that reporters’ professionalism is often “sacrificed to political demands.”
“Another piece of spin, which is claimed to be sensational and objective, will happen in the nearest days. We have received some excessively-rich requests that, however, in their form were more like questions at an interrogation,” Peskov said.
He explained that the letters contained some personal questions about Putin, as well as questions about the Russian president’s family, his childhood friends and some businessmen.
“They are repeating themselves. ‘Is it true that the amount of your personal accumulated wealth is about US$40 billion?’ ‘Is it true that you possess gigantic residences, mega-yachts and other assets?’
On Sunday, Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) released the biggest leak in journalistic history, posting 11.5 million documents from a Panama law firm online and providing “rare insights into a world that can only exist in the shadows.”
SZ said it received the law firm’s documents a year ago from an anonymous source who “wanted neither financial compensation nor anything else in return.”
The German paper obtained further documents in an investigation that followed, involving “400 journalists from more than 100 media organizations in over 80 countries.”

The Panama papers were also supported by USAID, the United States Government agency which is primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid, and Open Society, which is backed by billionaire George Soros.
In an opinion piece published in February, Soros tried to prove that Putin was working “to foster the EU’s disintegration” by flooding the continent with refugees, allegedly as a result of the Russian military’s foray into Syria where it has dealt a lethal blow to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) forces.
