„Feliks“ ist enttarnt – Wie das Wikipedia-Monopol zur Desinformation genutzt wird.
Von Dirk Pohlmann, 8. September 2018

Auszüge:

Wikipedia hat sich selbst zum Ziel gesetzt, eine „freie und hochwertige Enzyklopädie zu schaffen und damit lexikalisches Wissen zu verbreiten.“ Mittlerweile belegt das Online-Lexikon auf der Rangliste der meistbesuchten Webseiten Platz 5. Es ist also weltweit eine der wichtigsten Informationsquellen im Internet.
Dem eigenen Anspruch kann Wikipedia aber trotz seiner Popularität nicht genügen. Obwohl unter Autoren und Benutzern die Kritik an der Einseitigkeit wichtiger Artikel zu politisch relevanten Themen zunimmt, wurden die Problemfälle bisher als unvermeidliche Folge der Offenheit der Wikipedia interpretiert, die ja gleichzeitig ihr Erfolgsgeheimnis sei. Wenn jeder mitmachen könne, gäbe es eben manchmal Probleme.

Aber nicht der freie Zugang ist die Ursache der Einseitigkeit, sondern die in Wirklichkeit sehr hierarchische Struktur des Online-Lexikons. Sie hat die feindliche Übernahme des in der Öffentlichkeit als Musterbeispiel für ein offenes, demokratisches Zusammenarbeiten geltenden Projekts durch eine Gruppe ermöglicht, die wikipedia-intern als „Politbüro“ bezeichnet wird, und die wir die „Junta“ nennen. Sie herrscht mit „Vandalismusmeldungen“ in Wikipedia und bestraft Unbotmäßigkeiten ihr gegenüber, Einträge, die ihrer Ansicht zuwiderlaufen und sogar die Nennung unserer Youtube Sendung „Geschichten aus Wikihausen“ mit Sperren, teilweise sofort auf Lebenszeit. Die Gruppe hat ihre eigenen Administratoren, also Wikipedia Schiedsrichter und ist damit Täter, Ankläger, Verteidiger, Staatsanwalt und Richter in Personalunion. Das sind groteske Verhältnisse, die nicht dem sorgsam gepflegten öffentlichen Image entsprechen.(…)

(…) Es ist nicht erstaunlich, dass diese Machtkonzentration Personen, Gruppen, Institutionen und staatliche Stellen anlockt. Als Markus Fiedler und ich für unsere YouTube Sendung „Wikihausen“ recherchierten, wer Champion bei der Manipulation von Wikipedia ist, landeten wir nicht in Russland, sondern in Israel. Alleine das israelische „Ministerium für strategische Angelegenheiten“ (Ministry for Strategic Affairs, im deutschen Wikipedia als “Ministerium für internationale Beziehungen” übersetzt!) gibt über 70 Millionen Dollar für eine Kampagne aus, um mit den Worten der Direktorin General Sima Vaknin-Gil „eine Gemeinschaft von Kämpfern zu schaffen“ die Aktivitäten „anti-israelischer Aktivisten zum Erliegen bringen“ und “das Internet” mit pro-israelischen Inhalten „überfluten“ soll.Diese Summe ist aber nur ein Bruchteil der aufgewendeten Gelder, die vom israelischen Militär, staatlichen und privaten Stellen sowie NGOs für diese Zwecke aufgewendet werden, wie wir in der 4. Folge von Wikihausen gezeigt haben.

Wird das in den Mainstream-Medien thematisiert, die sich ja große Sorgen wegen der angeblichen russischen Manipulationen machen? Nein. Wird dagegen juristisch und diplomatisch vorgegangen? Nein. Kümmert sich Wikipedia selbst um dieses Problem? Nein. Aber warum sind solche Doppelstandards möglich? Und welche Folgen haben sie? Interessiert das wirklich niemand? (…)

(…) Feliks war Markus Fiedler bereits bei den Recherchen zu seinen beiden Filmen „Die dunkle Seite der Wikipedia“ und „Zensur – die organisierte Manipulation der Wikipedia und anderer Medien“ aufgefallen. (…)
(…) Die Enttarnung von Feliks war ein investigatives Puzzlespiel, das uns letztlich durch einen Hinweis gelang, in welcher Schule er Abitur gemacht hatte. In Kombination mit anderen, von uns recherchierten Daten brachte uns das auf seine Spur.

Mittlerweile ist klar, wer Feliks ist:Er hieß früher Jörg Egerer und hat sich nach 2015 in Jörg Matthias Claudius Grünewald umbenannt. Egerer ist Beamter, von Beruf Rechtspfleger und konvertierte irgendwann ab 2012 vom katholischen Glauben zum Judentum. Egerer/Grünewald ist Mitglied der Linken, wird den „Antideutschen“ zugeordnet, ist ein politischer Freund von Klaus Lederer, war Bundestagskandidat der bayrischen Linken und war dort als Landesschatzmeister dem Vorstand beigeordnet. In seiner Amtszeit kam es zu Unregelmäßigkeiten, die nach seinem Rücktritt bekannt wurden, aber nach Angaben von Parteimitgliedern aus parteitaktischen Erwägungen nie juristisch aufgeklärt wurden. Es wurden Spendenquittungen an das „Forum kommunistischer Arbeitskreise“ ausgestellt, die trotz des Namens heute dem rechten Flügel der Linken angehören, das Geld blieb aber nicht in der Partei, sondern wurde weitergeleitet.

Es fällt auf, dass Egerer/Grünewald Einträge zu Mitgliedern der Linken nach Nähe zu seinen politischen Positionen durch selektive Auswahl detaillierter Angaben entweder diskreditiert, etwa bei den Bundestagsmitgliedern Diether Dehm, Annette Groth, Inge Höger, Alexander Süßmaier, Kornelia Möller oder Oskar Lafontaine, oder positiv darstellt, wie bei Klaus Ernst oder Eva Bulling-Schröter, deren Webseite er auch betreut hat. Die negative Darstellung in Wikipedia durch Feliks gilt insbesondere für Linke, die sich kritisch zur derzeitigen israelischen Außenpolitik äußern.

Das könnte damit zusammenhängen, dass Jörg Egerer mehrfach Teilnehmer bei Sar-El war, einem Freiwilligenprogramm der israelischen Streitkräfte für Ausländer, bei dem allerdings kein Dienst in aktiven Kampfeinheiten geleistet wird. Mehrere Linke haben uns aber berichtet, dass es ein Foto von Jörg Egerer in israelischer Uniform mit einer Uzi-Maschinenpistole gibt.

Egerer/Grünewald ist außerdem Oberleutnant der Reserve der Bundeswehr und Mitglied im „Bund jüdischer Soldaten e.V.“, wo er auch Kassenprüfer ist. Er hat militärische Fallschirmabzeichen der US Army, der tschechischen, kroatischen und belgischen Streitkräfte. Davon wusste aber keiner der Linkenpolitiker, mit denen wir gesprochen haben. (…)

Caitlin Johnstone dismantles the false flag in Douma – Dust no Gas – Weakening Narrative – Consent Required.

Syrian ‘Chemical Victims’ Suffered from Dust Inhalation, Reports Say

April 16, 2018

A report by the Independent’s veteran Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk quotes doctors in Douma saying victims suffered from dust inhalation and that a member of the White Helmets caused panic by falsely shouting, “Gas!” in a triage center. The White Helmets were then bused out with other jihadists, as Caitlin Johnstone explains.

By Caitlin Johnstone

We are now being told (and I assure you I am not making this up) that if the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons doesn’t find evidence that the Syrian government conducted a chemical weapons attack in Douma last week, it’s because Russia hid the evidence.

“It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site,” reports U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Ward. “It is our concern that they may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission to conduct an effective investigation.”

I guess the idea is that this international top-level investigative team on which tremendous credibility has been placed by the western world can be thwarted by Russians showing up with a Hoover and spraying some Febreze in the air like a teenage stoner when mom comes home? I’m not sure, but given the immense dearth of evidence we’ve been seeing in support of the establishment Douma narrative and the mounting pile of evidence contradicting it, it sure does sound fishy.

Now that the jihadist-occupied suburb of Douma has been retaken by the Syrian government, western journalists have been allowed in to poke around and start asking questions, and so far it isn’t looking great for the propaganda machine

Dust Not Gas

The Independent‘s Robert Fisk has published a report which affirms the story so many westerners have been dismissing as Kremlin propaganda for days now after interviewing a doctor from the hospital of the area where the Douma attack was supposed to have occurred. Dr Assim Rahaibani told Fisk that what was in actuality an outbreak of respiratory distress among occupants of a dusty oxygen-deprived tunnel was made to look like the aftereffects of a chemical weapons attack when a member of the White Helmets started shouting about a gas attack in front of a bunch of video cameras. Everyone panicked and started hosing themselves down, but in the video, according to Rahaibani, “what you see are people suffering from hypoxia—not gas poisoning.”

This report was independently backed up by a reporter from One America News Network named Pearson Sharp, who gave a detailed account of his interviews with officials, doctors, as well as many civilians on the street Sharp says he deliberately selected at random in order to avoid accusations of bias. Many people hadn’t even heard that a chemical weapons attack had taken place, and the ones who had said it was staged by Jaysh al-Islam. The staff at the hospital, including a medic-in-training who was an eyewitness to the incident, gave the same story as the account in Fisk’s report. (Fisk also reported that the White Helmets in Duma had joined jihadists on Syrian government buses on the way to Idlib province.)

Weakening Narrative

The increasing confidence with which these unapproved narratives are being voiced and the increasing discomfort being exhibited by empire loyalists like Ambassador Ward indicate a weakening narrative in the greater propaganda campaign against the Assad government and its allies, but don’t hold your breath for the part where Fox News and the BBC turn around and start asking critical questions of the governments that they are meant to be holding to account.

The journalists who have been advancing the establishment narrative on Syria aren’t about to start reporting that they’ve gotten the entire yria story backward and have been promoting a version of events manufactured for the benefit of CIA-MI6-Mossad agendas. You’re not about to see CNN, who last year staged a fake scripted interview with a seven year-old Syrian girl to manufacture support for escalations against Assad, suddenly turn around and start asking if we’re being told the full story about what’s happening Syria.

Watch them closely. Watch how they steadfastly ignore the growing mountain of evidence and keep promoting the Syrian regime change agenda that the western empire has been working toward for decades. Watch them dismiss all evidence they can’t ignore as Kremlin propaganda and shift the narrative whenever things start to look bad for them. Those riding the crest of the wave of establishment media are too far gone into the blob to ever admit error and change. The least among us aren’t about to stop constructing a public reality tunnel which depicts them as heroes of truth, tear it all down, and start advancing a narrative which makes them look like fools at best and villains at worst. It will not happen.

Luckily for us, it doesn’t need to. Internet censorship is still far from closing the door on our ability to network and share information, and we’ve been very effective at sowing skepticism among the masses. The war propagandists are not nearly as good at their jobs as they want to believe, and we can beat them.

Consent Required

They work so hard to manufacture support for war because they require that consent. If the oligarchs try to launch a war against a disobedient nation amidst very clear opposition from the public, they will shatter the illusion of freedom and democracy that their entire empire is built upon, and then they’re exposed. Corporatist oligarchy has succeeded in weaving its web of dominance because its oppression has thus far remained hidden and its depravity disguised as humanitarianism. They cannot expose themselves by transgressing a loud NO from the public or else the masses will realize that everything they used to believe about their country, their government and their world is a lie.

They won’t risk that. We can force them into retreating from open war by circulating facts and information and keeping a healthy level of skepticism circulating among the public. Watch them squirm, move goalposts and shift narratives, and point and yell about it whenever it happens. We can win the media war against the propagandists. We have truth on our side.

Russia’s Alleged Meddling in Catalan Vote: Playing the Blame Game — articles by Ralf Streck and Alex Gorka

globalcrisis/globalchange NEWS
Martin Zeis, 15.11.2017

Dear all,

concurrently with Ralf STRECK’s article „Die Russen sollen sich auch in Katalonien eingemischt haben“(1) Alex GORKA published „Russia’s Alleged Meddling in Catalan Vote: Playing the Blame Game“.(2) He demonstrates how the Spanish government + media, the EU, the NATO leadership increasingly blame/d Russia interfering in and operating Catalonian affairs.

E x t r a c t s

„Few people are able to recognize their own mistakes. Many prefer to deny the truth becoming willfully oblivious to obvious facts. Why assume responsibility if there is such a thing as blame shifting – a true-and-tried method to get away with it? Pointing a finger at someone else to divert attention serves the purpose. There is method to this madness and Western politicians have been resorting to blame-shifting tactic increasingly often. Each and everything going awry in the world is the fault of Russia. The drive of peoples for independence is a good example. Take Catalonia to illustrate the point. (3)

(…)

Can anyone of sane mind believe that Russia’s “meddling” is the real reason to make over 40 percent of Catalans support independence?

  • Has Russia been behind the 95-year-old independence movement in Catalonia
  • Has Russia made the Catalans’ language and culture distinct?
  • Did Russia make Francisco Franco oppress the Catalan people?
  • Has Russia provoked the economic crisis in Spain, which has served to magnify calls for Catalan independence?
  • Has Russia made Catalans believe that the current tax structure is unfair?
  • Has Russia made Madrid unwilling to renegotiate Catalonia’s autonomy agreement?
  • Has Russia written Spain’s constitution, which expressly prohibits a region from breaking away unilaterally?
  • Did Moscow order Spanish police to use brutal force, while preventing the unconstitutional vote?
  • If it didn’t count, why take such pains to stop it?
  • Several world leaders and political figures condemned the violence specifically. Did Russia make them do it?
  • Did Russia make the EU abstain from mediation effort? And, finally, does Russia stand to gain from an independent Catalonia?

With many publications on the issue, no evidence has been produced to demonstrate a link between the Russian government and Catalonia vote. Obviously, the use of the „Russian meddling“ narrative seems to work as a distraction from the wrongdoing of the Spanish government. The fantasy provides a convenient scapegoat to avoid responsibility of the Spanish government for missing opportunities to launch meaningful political dialogue with Catalonia and mishandling of the vote. (…)

„The best way we have for defending the achievements made to date is democratic opposition to the application of article 155“

October 28, 2017

Dear compatriots,

Yesterday we lived through a historic day, a day full of democratic and civic significance. The Parliament of Catalonia fulfilled what the citizens voted for on September 27, 2015, when the majority that emerged from the ballot box entrusted Parliament with the proclamation of independence.

Yesterday, too, the Spanish Council of Ministers agreed to the sacking of the entire Government of Catalonia, intervention into our self-government and the dissolving of Parliament. These are decisions contrary to the will of the citizens of our country as expressed at the polls. They know perfectly well that in a democratic society it is up to parliaments to choose or dismiss presidents.

However, citizens, in these first moments, all of you have understood that the phase we have now entered we must continue to defend — with a tireless civic spirit and with a commitment to peace. Your reaction is that of a mature country that knows where it wants to go and how it wants to arrive there. Let’s not get diverted from that: let’s continue to persevere in the only attitude that can make us winners. Without violence, without insults, in an inclusive way, respecting people, symbols and opinions and also respecting the protests of Catalans who do not agree with what has been decided by the parliamentary majority.

Our desire is to continue working to fulfil our democratic mandates and at the same time seek maximum stability and calm, understanding the difficulties logically involved in a phase of this kind, one that our country has never been through, in any case never before in the way that is happening now.

The message I would like to address to you is this: let’s have patience, perseverance and perspective. On that basis we can be clear that the best way to defend the gains won to date is through democratic opposition to the application of article 155, which is the end point of a premeditated aggression against the will of we Catalans who by a very large majority and over many years have felt ourselves to be a nation of Europe.

We have to do this by protecting ourselves against repression and threats, but doing that without ever, ever in our life, not at any moment, abandoning a public-spirited and peaceful conduct. We can’t be, nor do we ever want to be, right through might. Not us. I ask this of you convinced that this request is what everyone expects, also from outside our country.

We shall continue working to build a free country, to guarantee a society that has less injustcess, more equality, more solidarity and more fraternity with all the peoples of the world, starting with the peoples of Spain with whom we want to strengthen ties on the basis of respect and mutual recognition.

Thank you very much.

Nafeez AHMED: How the Trump regime was manufactured by a war inside the Deep State

Elke Schenk

globalcrisis/globalchange NEWS

02/15/2017

Dear all,

we continue our postings of analyses to understand the Trump presidency and administration. After John Whitehead, Johan Galtung, Pepe Escobar, F. William Engdahl, Peter Dale Scott we recommend Nafeez AHMED’s „How the Trump regime was manufactured by a war inside the Deep State“. Ahmed provides many details about the personnel of Trump’s administration, their connectivity with „Big Oil“, ‚Big Money‘, Media, the AltRight-Movement, the secret services and the Military-Industrial-Complex. Ahmed’s thesis is: „President Donald Trump is not fighting a war on the establishment: he’s fighting a war to protect the establishment from itself, and the rest of us. […] The Trump regime is not operating outside the Deep State, but mobilizing elements within it to dominate and strengthen it for a new mission. The Trump regime is not acting to overturn the establishment, but to consolidate it against a perceived crisis of a wider transnational Deep System.“

Ahmed refers to Scott’s definition of the „Deep State“; additional he shows the interrelation between the Trump administration, the Deep State, the „international Deep System“ including organized crimes structures benefiting from the global financial system.

But, as Ahmed outlines, the Trump regime will fail because of a misunderstanding of the systemic crisis we are facing.

A new chapter of the aforementioned „war inside the Deep State“ shows the New York Times report „Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russion Intelligence“.

President Donald Trump is not fighting a war on the establishment: he’s fighting a war to protect the establishment from itself, and the rest of us.

The Trump regime is not operating outside the Deep State, but mobilizing elements within it to dominate and strengthen it for a new mission.

The Trump regime is not acting to overturn the establishment, but to consolidate it against a perceived crisis of a wider transnational Deep System.

The Trump regime is not a conservative insurgency against the liberal establishment, but an act of ideologically constructing the current crisis as a conservative-liberal battleground, led by a particularly radicalized white nationalist faction of a global elite.

The act is a direct product of a global systemic crisis, but is a short-sighted and ill-conceived reaction, pre-occupied with surface symptoms of that crisis. Unfortunately, those hoping to resist the Trump reaction also fail to understand the system dynamics of the crisis. […]

All this can only be understood when we look at the big picture. That means the following: we must look a little more closely at the individuals inside Trump’s administration, the wider social and institutional networks they represent, and what emerges from their being interlocked in government; we must contextualize this against two factors, the escalation of global systemic crisis, and the Trump regime’s ideological framing(s) of that crisis (both for themselves, and for public consumption); we must connect this with the impact on the transnational Deep System, and how that links up with the US Deep State; and we must then explore what this all means in terms of the scope of actions likely to be deployed by the Trump regime to pursue its discernable goals.

This investigation will help to establish a ground state for anyone on which to build a meaningful strategy of response that accounts for the full systemic complexity of our Trumpian moment. […]

Perhaps the most powerful takeaway from this examination of who the Trump administration actually is, is that the Trump regime is not external to the Deep State. On the contrary, the people who hold senior posts in his administration, both formal and otherwise, are key nodes that represent whole layers of social and institutional networks within and across the wider US Deep State.

If this is not immediately obvious, it’s because there is much misunderstanding of what the Deep State actually is. The Deep State is not simply ‘the intelligence community’. When a more accurate understanding of the American Deep State and its symbiotic embeddedness in a transnational Deep System is adopted, the role of the Trump faction can be properly discerned. […]

As I’ve shown in my paper published in the anthology, The Dual State (Routledge, 2016), one of the least understood features of deep politics, then, is that the “deep state” must inherently be inter-networked with a vast array of non-state and often transnational influencers across corporations, financial institutions, banks, and criminal enterprises.

[…]

On the back of this deep, transnational political violence — which remains obscured in mainstream media and history education — the US and UK erected a global financial architecture to serve the interests of their most powerful corporate and banking institutions, which hold overwhelming sway over the political class.

State power was deployed to integrate the resources, raw materials, fossil fuel energy reserves, and cheap labour from these vast areas of the world into a global economy dominated by transnational elite interests based largely in the US, UK and Western Europe.

This, too, opened the way for new forms of criminalization of state power.

[…]

But the problem goes further. As the primary medium of exchange for this criminal economy is the US dollar, the latter’s role as the world reserve currency has cemented a structural situation in which the economic power of the US Treasury has become conditional on the economic immunity of transnational criminal networks, who systematically use US dollars for criminal transactions: The greater the stock of dollars held abroad, the greater the source of revenue for the US Treasury.

These examples illustrate how the US Deep State operates as the chief regulator of a global Deep System, in which seemingly legitimate international financial flows have become increasingly enmeshed with transnational organized crime, powerful corporate interests who control the world’s fossil fuel and raw materials resources, and the privatization of the military-industrial complex.

[…]

So rather than being a nationalist ‘insurgency’ against the corporate globalist ‘Deep State’, the Trump regime represents a white nationalist coup by a disgruntled (aufgebracht, verstimmt) cross-section within the Deep State itself. Rather than coming into conflict with the Deep State, we are seeing a powerful military-corporate nexus within the American Deep State come to the fore. Trump, in this context, is a tool to re-organize and restructure the Deep State in reaction to what this faction believe to be an escalating crisis in the global Deep System.

In short, the Deep State faction backing Trump is embarking on what it believes is a unique and special mission: to save the Deep State from a decline caused by the failures of successive American administrations.

However, what they are actually doing is accelerating the decline of the American Deep State and the disruption of the global Deep System.

John RAPPOPORT: Major Media Crash: They Need A Scapegoat;nomorefakenews, 23.11.2016

globalcrisis/globalchange NEWS

Martin Zeis, 24.11.2016

Dear all,

below a waspish commentary by Jon Rappoport* about the Trump-elect-repercussions on the major media. His key assumption:

„The elite political class and their media minions fear more than independent news countering their own news. For obvious reasons, every civilization down through history has had its own monopolistic media, its central “broadcasting system.” Its controlled outlet. But now, The One has become Many.

That is the threat.

The rapid proliferation of The Many is an unpredictable X-factor.

The population is waking up to decentralized media. Instead of the hypnotic attachment to one basic information source — the habit of a lifetime — the public is learning to handle multiple sources. Therefore, the hypnotic spell is being broken and dissolved.

This is the basic problem for the elites.“
