If our members of Congress and in the Mainstream Media seem like animatronic zombies, pushing non sequitur narratives, it’s because most are on the take from foreign powers. The pervasiveness and the perniciousness of the bribery and influence peddling that is corrupting our political process is woefully under-reported. Washington has become a playground for desperate foreign interests and the interest of the United States citizen has gotten lost.
More than a dozen prominent Washington research groups have received tens of millions of dollars from foreign governments in recent years. Foreign propaganda is all around us. Many of us repeat it every day and we don’t even realize it. Foreign-funded news and commentary that we all take in as real thoughts and real news coming from real American citizens is bought and paid for.
This truly excellent documentary short by Mike Cernovich reveals the role of just one of these powerful influencers, the State of Qatar, the tiny Persian Gulf country with a jihadist regime and the highest per capita income in the world. Qatar excels at the game of political influence. They fund think tanks to put out policy papers that support their agenda, then pay journalists to promote it and then fund law firms to sue anybody who disagrees with them.
Want to know why animatronic journalists suddenly sprang to life and flogged the Jamal Khashoggi murder nonstop? Qatar. That whole thing was actually a skirmish in the simmering war between Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Like so many other battles in the 21st century, it becomes a psychological information war.
You haven’t heard very much about the influence of Qatar because journalists are afraid to report on this. It’s known that if you cross Qatar, your computers will be mercilessly hacked.
As Cernovich says, “America wasn’t prepared to deal with a threat like Qatar…They’re buying up our academics, our media. This is happening right before our eyes.”
