'2000 Mules' Is Attacked With Shameless Lies
...in a classic "disinformation" campaign to which I offer a point-by-point response.

IT PAINS ME TO REPORT that the once-respectable Detroit News disgraced itself last week. In its Thursday, May 19 edition, the News devoted half of the first page of its 'Opinion' section to the very eye-catching beginning of an article entitled, "Could '2000 Mules' be wrong?", referring to the compelling and informative new documentary by Dinesh D'Souza which was released online a few weeks ago to very considerable interest and lots of viewings, and which began a round of theatrical screenings across the country this weekend (at one of which I watched the film for the second time yesterday afternoon).

As suggested by its title, the article, which goes on to occupy another third of a page a little further into the section, purports to be an objective inquiry/analysis of a number of key points made in the new film in which massive and outcome-skewing fraud in the 2020 election is decisively shown.

However, this "fact check" exercise is conducted by the Associated Press (AP) (under the byline of someone named Ali Swenson). As is to be expected from AP, which for many years has been a wholly-owned propaganda organ of what we'll call the "deep state" for the sake of simplicity, the piece is an exercise in blatant disinformation meant to suppress attention to the film and wider exposure of its remarkable revelations.

The News should not have stooped so low-- especially since people high in the food chain there with whom I am acquainted had been given the opportunity to watch '2000 Mules' for themselves, and so must be suspected of having run the false hit-piece knowing its true character.

Sadly, the News is not alone. This corruptly false attack by AP probably marred other papers across the country last Thursday, as well. Many one-time honorable newspapers have long-since abandoned in-house reporting in favor of the less-expensive pre-packaged sips of heavily-spun Kool-Aid churned out by the court stenographers at the wire service.

It falls to the rest of us to debunk the litter of disinformation thus so widely and deeply cluttering the cognitive landscape. I will endeavor to do so here with regard to the AP's lies about '2000 Mules' to which the Detroit News and others have let themselves become party.

Col. Douglas Macgregor Shares Important Truths About Events In Ukraine

[Video]

Afterword

"There is no safety for honest men but by believing all possible evil of evil men."
-Edmund Burke

IT'S VERY GOOD to have an adult like Douglas Macgregor "in the room" as it were. There aren't many others (adults) to be found in the national conversation on matters of such moment as our current provocations and assaults on Russia-- an evil of aggression as well as lunacy from a standpoint of proper concern for American national security and general well-being. (See more on all that here, here and here.)

The video of Macgregor, above, should be widely shared. Only when sober and credible voices such as his are heard by millions of Americans will thee be any hope of a real halt to the current madness, since it is a madness with its grip on both leading Republican political figures just as much as on Democrats. Even a change in control of congress in November won't end this (if such a change occurs at all-- see this and this).

ON A LARGER SCALE, of course, we need to broadly restore liberty and the rule of law overall. To accomplish this we simply need to resume tried-and-true practices and arrangements known as "normal life" by our grandparents.

In fact, to make that restorative transformation all we need to do is one simple thing, acting entirely as individuals with no agreement from any institutional authority. That one simple thing will function as a catalyst, compelling the beneficial reorganization of our whole societal and political structure as a natural and inevitable process.

You can see a sketch of that process and its outcomes-- which, remember, we have already implemented in America, and maintained for better than half our time as a nation, so this is not pie-in-the-sky but a thoroughly proven thing-- in the presentation here. Read it, think about it, share it.

"I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves...too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock patriotism: 'Our country, right or wrong!' They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotism: 'Our country--when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.'"
-Senator Carl Schurz, October 17, 1899
