most of the activity regardless of its origin, comes from thousand of political adds run out of Trumps project Alamo HQ. thousands of adds were produced to test and hone down messages until the messages which resonated the most, were obtained. after which it was those messages which were used as the basis for a number core issues they could then best leverage. there is even a wiki page for Project Alamo, so it's not even a difficult claim to back up. this is all ignored because it counters a cold war Narrative.

The 3 letter alphabet agencies have a long history of problem causal solutions they create the problem then fund the action then employ the "only" solution. Example all the shoots that have occurred. Or building 7 on 9/11. They have a problem, they create a reason, they enforce the solution. How can you say you're real news when you are feeding the same bs the main stream is and you are not hiding your biases very well just FYI..

7:06 "Who's standing up most to Russian interference in the elections? WE ARE at The Real News! [be]cause we're trying to educate people about the reality of the world." Hell yeah, Paul Jay! Never give up, and never surrender. You guys/gals are beacons of light in the darkness, and your efforts are not wasted!

Use AdGuard Premium (full disclosure: like Kapersky, it is a RUSSIAN company, [which the US Government used widely until it occurred to the dumb motherfuckers in the Intel Commune thought [hey, John, James, doesn't Kaspersky sound like a Russian?], which is less than $10 dollars! PC and Android version block not only nearly EVERY AD, popups, invasive analytics, on ANY site! Ads waste bandwidth, slowing browsing down and can even upload maleware to your PC or Android device without you even knowing! I swear, I'm not affiliated with "The Russians!" that created the brilliant Adguard program. If you don't like or want instrusive ads, popups, and tracking analytics...the answer isn't hard to figure out. Just block the bastards and keep data miners out! If you saw Jesus, Satan, and "Blacktivist" ads, please tell me you laughed your ass off. Russian agents wouldn't fuck around with social media, not in such an awfully pitiful "influence campaign". Did Intel. mean the "Sowers of Discord and Underminers of Trust in their Government" that "Defrauded the U.S." (a [law] that sounds like it was named by someone with no imagination or wit or just a lack of time so Mueller could have a name of a new crims to INDICT, INDICT, INDICT and that means...Mueller knew this was easy money because he had to know no one in Congress believes Russia has any pull with American opinion (unlike the CIA and NSA). Congress has already put the framing of the American mind into law. Silicon Valley is all in on Internet censorship. It's quite palpable if you are an independent thinker. Scroogle and facecrook search results and "news" is regulated to protect the idiots in America from content that is inconvenient or MUST be from Russians or "Conspiracy Theorists" that bring attention to unanswered questions that are ignored by corporate-state controlled media.

It'd be good to have Paul on more often, as interviewer as well.

Paul Jay hits the nail on the head with the need for education. Americans live in a permanent fantasy world of their own making and it is little surprise that 'we' today we have lost all touch with reality.

Most people just want fantasy in between bouts of all the shit they have to deal with in a day. They don't see how it is all connected. They are tired, fearful, lonely, angry, depressed, stressed. Information overload. Not when it comes to hollywood or sports but anything unnerving is branded political and people say they are tired of hearing it. They don't notice all the shit they spew and partake in but damn you mention the truth and they spit it out like bitter medicine. I understand the desire to escape, but man the more one ignores the truth the more one is bent over, and the closer the foot of god comes to ones ass.

Though to be fair sometimes people who speak the truth get too combative and that is a repellent. We are all humans seeking pleasure. Medicine with some honey is more tolerable.

Paul Jay hit the nail right on the head.....EDUCATION!!! the US surely has the most uneducated population in the western world. Education is not the only answer, the main stream media needs to be dismantled in its present form. The lies, misinformation and fear mongering that has spewed forth from them in the US, UK, France and Australia is disgraceful. In fact it is more than disgraceful, it is often lies and government propaganda. Education is under attack in Australia as well, where government policy is a subversive theme. Keep em stupid keep em poor and above all keep em divided.!!!

Spot on! If Americans fall for alleged Russian meddling it only shows how ignorant Americans must be. Claiming that some Fakebook ads can change the minds of the American population, it is either an insult to Americans, or a confession to the fact, that American education isn't good enough. We foreigners love to think Americans are stupid, but we know in our hearts, that you are just as intelligent as us. But you are wasting all that intelligence, instead of giving your kids and young people an education for free. Think of it as an investment: Smart people are more efficient than stupid people!

Aaron, Paul Great job !I am proud to be a member. I understand the use in this context but in general avoid giving air time to fools (like fox news) your value is wasted reacting to idiots.

completely factually, objectively, to talk about Russian meddling in US politics without including Israeli influence is to ignore the elephant in the room. And elephant isn't even a big enough metaphor. Seriously, the way to confront the climate of fear is to ridicule the entire subject. Israel supports a racist state in a climate of fear, not unlike their mentors in Nazi Germany. We can either wait for WWIII or we can stop these ass holes in their tracks right now.

The troll messaging doesn't have much influence, it's hyped up by the media to deflect from the corruption.

Very good video, but I can NOT agree with Mr. Jay that there is no justification for Russians to meddle in our elections (if in fact they are). THEY'RE ABSOLUTELY JUSTIFIED!!! Look at how many military bases the US has in every corner of the world, not to mention they've almost completely surrounded Russia. If the Russians or any country had done that to the US, I GUARANTEE you that every single American would be SCREAMING blood. Hell would break loose! But yet when we do it to Russia and other countries, you're telling me there's no justification. You're kidding me?! Are you THAT selfish and self-centered that you can't see anything from another person's point of view?! Or are you just too scared to say what you really think? Come on, Mr. Jay, you're more intelligent than that....

Picture is becoming clear. Russian meddling may not even exist. This is a convenient ruse to shut us down including Real News and others. Truth can only come from MSNBC, CNN, FOX, NYT, WP etc. Social media can cause problems like it did in Arab Spring for example. Watch out next they will shut down internet Forums.

The vote is manipulated by American voting machine companies (as just happened in Kansas with the Welder and Kobach races) not by Russians. Forget the GRU, we should be looking at Diebold.

Funny. You go out right now and talk to strangers. I mean right now. Maybe take a glimpse of the conversations heard in earshot. GO towards and join the conversation. Suddenly find how those you thought were strangers share your thoughts, share your truth. Right now. Those you thought were just passers-by .. share your mind. So talk .. find your people. On the street. You won't find them here on the net .. well, not many. The click has been clicked. Reality collapses into your own street. It is done. Talk to those near you - physically. Value has been saved .. get it? In person. With People. Start talking - start sharing? Face to face. In reality.

It's a Balloon Penelope, I do like to nibble my carrots, but as a seed-saving, self composting gardener I don't need to be much of an enslaved 'consumer' to enjoy those nibbles. The economic empowerment of veganism is vast. I do pay a tiny amount for a surveillance-free email account from an awesome local internet connection company that goes to court to protect their clients. And I trade my labor for a room and some garden space at the organic farm I live on. The more we work together, the less power the bagillionaires have to steal our way of life. Of course Climate Warming will get us all soon enough if we don't nuke the Earth to smithereens first. Weird, isn't it, how our socio-pathic bagillionaires don't even feel empathy for their own kids and grandkids as they wreck the world as fast as they can?
Eliseville (1 month ago)
Yo, Pissed, we need to recognize the anti-democratic, anti-social, fascistic, oligarchic, mind-controlling nature of the parasitic BAGILLIONAIRS running our nation into the ground. Of course we believe conspiracy theories. Post-Wikileaks, we have the evidence and we continue to see new ones rolled out every day. Finding truth has become very tricky in this sea of corporate-sponsored propaganda designed to make us into idiots! We need the RealNews and a deep understanding of what's being done to us so we can fight our way out of this trap before it's too late.

its a two way street, and while it might be convenient to ask the government for help, we the people need to choose alternatives. We the people need to appreciate diversity and sacrificing some conveniences in order to maintain the public peace.

Louis Anthes, instead of blaming even them, as horrible as they are, we need to clean up our own act. WE need to stop. We need to stop empowering our psycho- and socio-pathic billionaires who are enslaving the whole world.

songscreen It's not about history, because the winners control history. It's about the media controling the naritives. The corporate media is working for the government and who control the naritves control the masses. They lie in every war for decades. Those facts isn't written in history books.

For the love of progressive organization....please put links to all the other videos in this series in the descriptions of each video. Besides that awesome work guys! Thank you! Keep it up!

Agreed ~ given that the videos in the series all have different names, it's been a little tricky hopping around trying to find the next in this series.
