Senate Quietly Passes The "Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act"

Tyler Durden's picture

While we wait to see if and when the Senate will pass (and president will sign) Bill  "H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017", which was passed by the House at the end of November with an overwhelming majority and which seeks to crack down on websites suspected of conducting Russian propaganda and calling for the US government to "counter active measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in  coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly,” another, perhaps even more dangerous and limiting to civil rights and freedom of speech bill passed on December 8.

Recall that as we reported in early June, "a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth has been quietly introduced in Congress. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information. Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a “whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”

Also called the Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016 (S. 2692), when introduced in March by Sen. Rob Portman, the legislation represents a dramatic return to Cold War-era government propaganda battles. “These countries spend vast sums of money on advanced broadcast and digital media capabilities, targeted campaigns, funding of foreign political movements, and other efforts to influence key audiences and populations,” Portman explained, adding that while the U.S. spends a relatively small amount on its Voice of America, the Kremlin provides enormous funding for its news organization, RT.

“Surprisingly,” Portman continued, “there is currently no single U.S. governmental agency or department charged with the national level development, integration and synchronization of whole-of-government strategies to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation.”  

Long before the "fake news" meme became a daily topic of extensive conversation on wuch mainstream fake news portals as CNN and WaPo, H.R. 5181 would rask the Secretary of State with coordinating the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to “establish a Center for Information Analysis and Response,” which will pinpoint sources of disinformation, analyze data, and — in true dystopic manner — ‘develop and disseminate’ “fact-based narratives” to counter effrontery propaganda.

* * *

Fast forward to this past Thursday, December 8, when the "Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act" passed in the Senate, quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report.

Here is the full statement issued by the generously funded Senator Rob Portman (R- Ohio) on the passage of a bill that further chips away at press liberties in the US, and which sets the stage for future which hunts and website shutdowns, purely as a result of an accusation that any one media outlet or site is considered as a source of "disinformation and propaganda" and is shut down by the government.

Senate Passes Major Portman-Murphy Counter-Propaganda Bill as Part of NDAA

Portman/Murphy Bill Promotes Coordinated Strategy to Defend America, Allies Against Propaganda and Disinformation from Russia, China & Others

U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) today announced that their Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act – legislation designed to help American allies counter foreign government propaganda from Russia, China, and other nations – has passed the Senate as part of the FY 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report. The bipartisan bill, which was introduced by Senators Portman and Murphy in March, will improve the ability of the United States to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation by establishing an interagency center housed at the State Department to coordinate and synchronize counter-propaganda efforts throughout the U.S. government. To support these efforts, the bill also creates a grant program for NGOs, think tanks, civil society and other experts outside government who are engaged in counter-propaganda related work. This will better leverage existing expertise and empower local communities to defend themselves from foreign manipulation.

“The passage of this bill in the Senate today takes us one critical step closer to effectively confronting the extensive, and destabilizing, foreign propaganda and disinformation operations being waged against us. While the propaganda and disinformation threat has grown, the U.S. government has been asleep at the wheel. Today we are finally signaling that enough is enough; the United States will no longer sit on the sidelines. We are going to confront this threat head-on,” said Senator Portman. “With the help of this bipartisan bill, the disinformation and propaganda used against our allies and our interests will fail.”

“Congress has taken a big step in fighting back against fake news and propaganda from countries like Russia. When the president signs this bill into law, the United States will finally have a dedicated set of tools and resources to confront our adversaries’ widespread efforts to spread false narratives that undermine democratic institutions and compromise America’s foreign policy goals,” said Murphy. “I’m proud of what Senator Portman and I accomplished here because it’s long past time for the U.S. to get off the sidelines and confront these growing threats.”

NOTE: The bipartisan Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is organized around two main priorities to help achieve the goal of combatting the constantly evolving threat of foreign disinformation. They are as follows:

  • The first priority is developing a whole-of-government strategy for countering foreign propaganda and disinformation. The bill would increase the authority, resources, and mandate of the Global Engagement Center to include state actors like Russia and China in addition to violent extremists. The Center will be led by the State Department, but with the active senior level participation of the Department of Defense, USAID, the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the Intelligence Community, and other relevant agencies. The Center will develop, integrate, and synchronize whole-of-government initiatives to expose and counter foreign disinformation operations and proactively advance fact-based narratives that support U.S. allies and interests.
  • Second, the legislation seeks to leverage expertise from outside government to create more adaptive and responsive U.S. strategy options. The legislation establishes a fund to help train local journalists and provide grants and contracts to NGOs, civil society organizations, think tanks, private sector companies, media organizations, and other experts outside the U.S. government with experience in identifying and analyzing the latest trends in foreign government disinformation techniques. This fund will complement and support the Center’s role by integrating capabilities and expertise available outside the U.S. government into the strategy-making process. It will also empower a decentralized network of private sector experts and integrate their expertise into the strategy-making process.

* * *

In other words, the Act will i) greenlight the government to crack down with impunity against any media property it deems "propaganda", and ii) provide substantial amounts of money fund an army of "local journalist" counterpropaganda, to make sure the government's own fake news drowns that of the still free "fringes."

So while packaged politely in a veneer of "countering disinformation and propaganda", the bill, once signed by Obama, will effectively give the government a full mandate to punish, shut down or otherwise prosecute, any website it deems offensive and a source of "foreign government propaganda from Russia, China or other nations." And since there is no formal way of proving whether or not there is indeed a foreign propaganda sponsor, all that will be sufficient to eliminate any "dissenting" website, will be the government's word against that of the website. One can be confident that the US government will almost certainly prevail in every single time.

The minute the WORTHWHILE NEWS goes MIA, is the day the TV, and Interwebs go bye-bye in my house.

I'll be damned if I'm going to be forced to endure the fiction-peddling MSM because a bunch of bent politicians get embarrassed whenever the truth surfaces.

All this does for me, is convince me that stories like Pizzagate are true...

greenskeeper carl's picture

This has gottne truly bizarre. They just can't accept it that the dumb masses they have taken for granted and thumbed their noses at for so long are finally getting wise to their nonsense. If the MSM wasn't US government controlled, maybe people wouldn't have to go elsewhere for news. The government and media complex created this monstor entirely on their own. If the MSM wasn't such obvious govt controlled propaganda, places like ZH wouldn't have nearly the following they do. This is entirely their own fault, and now, rather than, hmm, i don't know, fucking fix it, they are trying to destroy the competition. How very democratic of them. Since they can't counter this since they have no credibility, they are now turning to the hammer. My prediction is that this too will backfire and have the exact opposite of its desired effect. Much like demonizing trump in the media drove voters to them, endlessly prattling about "fake news" will just drive more people to it. Never stop your enemy when he is making a mistake...

“counter foreign government propaganda from Russia, China, and other nations”

That effort is idiocy and worthless without including NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, WayPoo, NYT and the rest of the MSM.

Byte Me's picture

All of this is not the pols (they're just pawns at a different remove of the many-dimensional theater) calling the shots, but the Deep State pulling the pols strings, in a hopefully vain attempt to push the detonated A-bomb back into the shiny shell.

It can't be done. It's an entropy "thing".

But it won't stop them trying to use the co-opted pols and the captured MSM to neuter the emerging "alt-media" with this legislation on top of previous infringements (NDAA springs to mind)

IT WON'T WORK. But it's all they realistically have. It might work on a few wavering weak-minded citizens, but I try to educate these on a one-to-one basis.

It ain't easy.

The conditioning has been thorough in the last 60 years through the TV (just the ads fuck your head - if you let it)

The rewards are immense. One fewer brainwashee is a voice to cnvert others (often out of genuine anger)

Can the freedom minded mindset win out? Possibly.. Bet on civil war / revolution as a more likely possibility. Prepare wccordingly.

A bit like in Georgia (the one on the Black Sea between Turkey and Russia) where the NWO stooge Saakashvili inadvertently gave more powers to ... his replacement, Ivanishvili, who promptly lodged charges against him for misusing state funds for botox, waxing, and gloriously, getting "bite-massage". Cue the slow golf clap applause...

Biden gave Suckassvilli the governorship of Odessa as a consolation prize for being a total Suckass in Georgia. He hightailed it out of town a while ago heading to Kiev, possibly in the hope of replacing Porkoshanko who is seen as too tolerant of the Novorossians. A leading contender as replacement for Suckassvilli in Odessa is Kiev millionaire and Israeli citizen Garik Korogodskii. Here he is in full splendor. Possibly yet another pizza fan

Solving 911 will end most of the shit happening in the world.

Again, solving 911 will end most of the shit happening in the world.


Everything else is just a distraction.

The world has been successfully subverted by these devils (I learned what subversion is by watching an old Yuri Bezmenov lecture on YouTube).

If you think 911 truth is crazy, then just take some time to study Montanye's links, and listen to Bezmenov. If you have an open mind you will get it.

In my world, when I talk about this there are people who think I'm off my rocker. And these are intelligent educated successful people. My parents generation especially, but also my college age nephews, and even doctors, college professors.

Again, if the truth of this comes out and can be common knowledge, it will cause a cascade of events that will end TPTB. THE END OF (((TPTB))).

I hope and pray that 2017 will be the year that this truth becomes mainstream.

Total censorship, here we come. And this is the country that still wants to teach democracy to "the rest of the world"? Such as

- total censorship on any made-up ground,

- ex-territorial torture centres (torture on Cuban soil is NOT what most people think it is),

- secret courts, secret prisons, droning people allover the world,

- "electors" who can virtually overrule millions of voters on a whimp,

- total mass surveillance,

- indefinite imprisonment without charge, trial or legal recourse (NDAA)

- a president who can break and re-write law at will

- sanctuary cities who can break laws at will

- a myriad of intelligence services who rule unchallenged and have zero accountability to anyone,

- ... that list could go on for pages and pages...

land of the brave and the free? Of the free no more, as can be seen above. And the brave are by now far and few between, unfortunately. An d the future looks bright, indeed. The only thing millenials are bothering about is where to get some puppies for their crying in safe zones while they try to get over their latest emotional setback...

Madaline McCann was kidnapped at 4 yrs old in Portugaul while sleeping, May 3, 2007.

One of our FBI insiders can confirmed the Intelligence community  indicates John and Tony Podesta were in Praia da Luz,  Portugal on May 3rd 2007– the day Madeleine McCann vanished.

The Podesta brothers were staying with a friend named “Clem.” Clement Freud, the grandson of psychopathology sex expert Dr. Sigmund Freud, who was known to be a pedophile. This is a quote from our insider:  Of greater interest is that fact that Freud owned a villa in Praia da Luz.”

It was then revealed that Clement Freud’s villa in which the Podesta Brothers were staying, was in fact only a third of a mile from the exact location from which Madeleine was taken:

See the suspects, they are Podesta Brothers no wonder they are in PANIC!

These people will be killed if they gets out, and it is out!
