Published

SouthFront reported that a failure of “pro-NATO propaganda happened on June 8.” EUvsDisinfo released an article with the title of “A red, white and blue All-American Maidan”.

SouthFront noted the following:

EUvsDisinfo is an outlet of the East StratCom Task Force. The East StratCom Task Force is a part of the European External Action Service – the diplomatic service and combined foreign and defense ministry of the European Union.

The article released by EUvsDisinfo and shared by Euromaidanpress, Slobodnaevropa (a part of the US state-run Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty) and other affiliated organizations look like designed to fuel protests in the United States. Their real target is US President Donald Trump and his administration. Nonetheless, by the nature of this kind of content, these organizations in fact promote the current civil standoff in the United States. As we can judge this is a kind of crime under the US law, and even under the international law.

SouthFront highlighted some points coming from EUvsDisinfo:

In the world of the pro-Kremlin disinformation network, protests are never a genuine expression of popular discontent. Protests are always staged, be that in Hong Kong, France, Venezuela – or the US.

The violent protests against police brutality are dominating world news, just as they dominate the flow of disinformation. The pro-Kremlin disinformation ecosystem attempts to exploit the protests in every possible way – expressing sympathy with the protesters, as well as conveying openly racist sentiment.

One of the most influential Russian English-language outlets is SouthFront. EUvsDisinfo has described how the outlet can be tied to Russia, and how SouthFront attempted to hide its Russian connections.

South Front has a clear picture of the protests: it’s a colour revolution, a fake popular uprising, set up by “Globalist Corporations” targeting Donald Trump.

‘The situation is such that typically, it was a standoff of US President Donald Trump and the US national industry, in a standoff against the globalist and the non-mainstream corporations.’

SouthFront defended itself from EUvsDisinfo’s claims by asserting that its “agenda is aimed at stabilizing the situation in the United States.” The watchdog website sustained that they support the “rule of law, and reject the violence and discrimination in any form.”

SouthFront left the following concluding remarks:

It looks that sponsors of organizations like EUvsDisinfo or Euromaidanpress are interested in destabilizing the situation in the United States. SouthFront believes that the FBI and other special services of the United States should pay special attention to these organizations.

This organization might actually have a point. There exist numerous entities and organizations in the U.S. and abroad that have every reason to take down Trump. Especially, in times of complete unrest.

If we want actual accountability and are serious about uncovering corruption within the Deep State, we must be willing to question the narrative behind mainstream events and figure out who’s really calling the shots.

Will Josh Hawley be the Next Champion for an America First Foreign Policy?

America First May Have its Next Leader to End Wars Abroad

Does America First have a new non-interventionist champion?

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has been viewed by many as one of the figures who could potentially lead a Trumpist movement after Trump, should Joe Biden end up being installed as president on January 2021.

Hawley has made a name for himself as a champion of Middle America and questioning the neoliberal orthodoxy on immigration and trade. Lately, Hawley has made a pivot towards  questioning the interventionist conventional wisdom on foreign policy. 

In early October of this year, the Missouri Senator called for the American government to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. Hawley tweeted, “Almost 20 years now in Afghanistan. Long past time to draw this war to an end.”

Hawley’s foreign policy has been a work progress over the past two years. During a 2019 speech Hawley gave at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), he questioned the nation-building policy prescriptions of previous administrations, demonstrating some degree of skepticism towards non-stop interventionism abroad on the part of the Senator.

That said, it remains to be seen if Hawley’s legislative record will fully match his rhetoric.

Hawley is a staunch China hawk, who fears the rise of China and is a strong voice against China’s expansionist efforts. Hawley’s track record shows that his foreign policy views are rough around the edges. Daniel Larison of The American Conservative is not as optimistic about Hawley judging by his votes on the Yemeni Civil War. Larison cited several of Hawley’s votes that may be cause for concern:

Sen. Hawley voted against the Senate’s resolution of disapproval that opposed the president’s effort to circumvent Congress with a bogus “emergency” to expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. More important, he voted with the president and most Senate Republicans against the antiwar Yemen resolution that would have cut off all U.S. support to the Saudi coalition.”

Nevertheless, Hawley’s comments on Afghanistan are a good sign that Hawley is catching on to the fact that Americans are tired of foreign wars. Politicians can change their views and behaviors. Hawley is likely recognizing that the America First movement is exhausted by the endless wars and wants candidates and elected officials who offer withdrawal plans. 

After looking at the list of people who have been tapped to join the Biden administration, Hawley tweeted, “What a group of corporatists and war enthusiasts – and #BigTech sellouts.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, a fierce interventionist skeptic, maintained cautious optimism about Hawley. In a tweet, he commented, “All kinds of reasons to be skeptical of the authenticity here, but — purely as a matter of rhetoric — just imagine any national Republican speaking this way about a Dem administration even 10 years ago. The framework of politics is radically shifting.”

The jury is still out on Hawley. Regardless of flaws in his voting record, America First advocates should continue to push him and other America First leaning Republicans in the right direction. We should never forget that politicians are still receptive to political pressure and the grassroots holds the keys to political change. 

Young senators like Hawley are the future of American politics and it makes sense for foreign policy restrainers to lobby them and push them in a direction that favors non-interventionism.
