Some time ago, I was approached by an established Bulgarian journalist who was trying to broker an interview with a Russian TV crew, ostensibly working for the international program of Rossiya 24 – one of the main Kremlin channels. Having rich, including negative experience with Russian journalists, who often creatively edit recorded content – blending unrelated parts so that the interviewee could easily appear as a retard – or just dump the interview altogether, I refused initially. The last time, a TV crew from Moscow’s city channel, TVTZ, came over to shoot a propaganda slot, portraying Bulgaria as a totally devastated country after it joined the EU and NATO. These crude propaganda shots are meant for home use, aimed at convincing the Russian audience that the former brethren
While Trump is now president of the United States, there are still many within and without the United States that fervently believe that he acquired this office by illegitimate means. They include the unprecedented number of fifty democratic members of Congress, who boycotted his inauguration and countless others. There is nothing that could be done to convince the unhinged Hillary partisans that there is zero evidence of effective interference in the elections on behalf of Trump. But it is understandable that even open-minded people who do not understand the American electoral system may be confused, given the unrelenting mainstream media propaganda to the effect that there was not the slightest chance for Trump to win. Indeed, on the day of the elections, purported ‘reputable’ media sources, such as the
On November 23, 2016, the European Parliament adopted a resolution against anti-EU propaganda propagated by Russia and terrorist groups such as Daesh and Al-Qaeda. The document states that Russia is using religious communities and pretending to be a defender of Christian values for its own subversive goals. The declaration provoked outrage in Moscow and subsequently pro-Russian media spread the news that “the EU is attacking Orthodoxy”. For years, experts were aware that the Kremlin was using the Russian Orthodox Church and its satellite churches for propaganda and intelligence purposes. The so-called. “Orthodox fundamentalism” was also called upon, as professed by small extreme groups, preaching aggressive religious exclusivism towards other Christian communities and denying basic principles of a democratic society and the rule of law. Things came to light as,

As Europe is being subjected to a seemingly never ending series of terrorist attacks, a little noticed event in the United States may provide the answer to a question that Western authorities seldom ask – how did Muslim diaspora communities in the West get radicalized to the point of killing their fellow-citizens? That little noticed event is the declassification of 28 pages of the official US report on the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001. For those familiar with the report, it has always been shockingly incongruent that of the 1000 pages of the report it was exactly the 28 pages that dealt with the Saudi Arabian involvement in 9/11 that were classified secret in all the years of the Bush and Obama presidencies until just now. Creating the unmistakable impression
Why the movies avoid Communism “We come from Bulgaria,” says Annina Brandel, a newlywed played by Joy Page. She is addressing Rick Blaine, played by Humphrey Bogart, in the 1942 film Casablanca. “Things are very bad there, monsieur,” Annina explains. “The devil has the people by the throat. Jan and I do not want our children to grow up in such a country.” The trouble is, they have no money, and Annina contemplates sex with Captain Renault, played by Claude Rains, to gain a visa. Annina asks Rick if the captain is trustworthy and if her “bad thing” would be all right if she kept it locked in her heart. “Go back to Bulgaria,” Rick says, but then he rigs the roulette table so Jan wins and
