In the movie Canadian Bacon (1995), the U.S. population is propagandized into believing that Canada is the Big Enemy. Now it is Canadian Bacon Redux, and we are propagandized into believing Russia is the Big Enemy. Allegations of “fake news” have been hurled against any citizen journalists who try to counteract the mainstream news propaganda blitz.
Thus reads the description for my latest video, “Canadian Bacon Redux”, published to YouTube on December 1, 2016. The clip, which clocks in at 10 minutes and 4 seconds, can hopefully be viewed at the top of today’s blog entry.
The Soviet dictator Josef Stalin privately suggested to Franklin Delano Roosevelt that some “propaganda work” should be done among “those people.” “Those people” were Americans of Polish extraction, and others of Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian origin who would be outraged about Eastern European nations being handed over to the Communists by FDR. 
The 1944 election was coming up, and FDR did not want to lose that bloc of voters. “Well, just do some propaganda work,” Stalin casually advised, as if this were something routine in politics.
Propaganda was massively deployed during the recent election. But then a counter-propaganda arose: Citizen journalists began reporting a different narrative from that being advanced by mainstream “news”. Outraged at the sheer effrontery of ordinary persons doubting the mass media perspective, they struck back by claiming a plot by Russia which used “useful idiots” as dupes. And thus was born the “fake news” conspiracy theory.
Was Russia behind it all? Julian Assange, interviewed by John Pilger, stated definitely that no, Russia was not the source of the John Podesta e-mail leaks. 
Walking around and pondering the situation, suddenly the movie Canadian Bacon popped into my thoughts. In that film from 1995, a new Big Enemy – Canada – is propagandized into existence. This was done as a way to improve ratings for the U.S. president.
So was Big Enemy Russia drummed up by the Hillary Clinton campaign as a way to deflect attention from revelations contained in the Podesta e-mails? In part, yes. Also, the Hillary Clinton plan was for World War III against Russia, with her playing the role of FDR redux.
“Well, just do some propaganda work,” advised Stalin, communicating through Eleanor Roosevelt, whom Hillary had been “channeling.”
Don’t be fooled by disinformation saying Hillary Clinton has turned into a wino after losing the November 8th election. “She is weepy, looks ten years older and is very whiny,” a Clinton insider told the media. “She has been drinking wine pretty heavily, much more than usual.” 
While we are lulled to sleep by the planted “Hillary the Wino” story, a top Democratic operative has confirmed that there is a plan amongst some members of the electoral college to defy the people in their states and not vote for Donald Trump on December 19th. 
Another of the “dirty tricks” seeming to be underway was reported by ultra-liberal syndicated columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr. Green Party candidate Jill Stein has been pushing for a vote recount. Apologists say that Stein is only seeking honest elections, however Stein’s idea may have been co-opted into something else by the Clinton campaign. This looks shady, suggests Pitts, coming as it does three weeks after the election instead of immediately thereafter. “A recount three weeks after the fact cannot avoid the appearance of dirty tricks,” Pitts observes. 
The U.S. Establishment will never allow Donald Trump to be elected, predicted Julian Assange.  And technically Trump is not elected until December 19th when the Electoral College votes. Around that time, Americans will be preoccupied by the Christmas season and will be less likely to be paying attention.
