Foreign governments with U.S. writers on their payroll?

This is pretty damn scummy:

“A range of mainstream American publications printed paid propaganda for the government of Malaysia, much of it focused on the campaign against a pro-democracy figure there.

The payments to conservative American opinion writers — whose work appeared in outlets from the Huffington Post and San Francisco Examiner to the Washington Times to National Review and RedState — emerged in a filing this week to the Department of Justice. The filing under the Foreign Agent Registration Act outlines a campaign spanning May 2008 to April 2011 and led by Joshua Trevino, a conservative pundit, who received $389,724.70 under the contract and paid smaller sums to a series of conservative writers….

Trevino’s subcontractors included conservative writer Ben Domenech, who made $36,000 from the arrangement, and Rachel Ehrenfeld, the director of the American Center for Democracy, who made $30,000. Seth Mandel, an editor at Commentary, made $5,500. Brad Jackson, writing at the time for RedState, made $24,700. Overall, 10 writers were part of the arrangement.”

You take secret, undisclosed money from a foreign government to write hit pieces in U.S. media against a man, in this case Anwar Ibrahim, who is struggling to bring democracy to his country and was beaten and imprisoned for years for daring to challenge the dictatorial government? (Russia has apparently run similar pay-to-say operations.)

Much of Trevino’s work under the Malaysian contract has been removed by the outlets that published it. But you can get a taste of its amoral quality from this piece that was published as a rebuttal to a Trevino column.

And here’s a Rachel Ehrenfeld piece, condemning Ibrahim for “careless sexual behavior” among other things.

We already know of course that “you can’t believe everything that’s on the Internet.” But paid agents of foreign governments masquerading as American journalists takes things to a dangerous level and says a lot about the character of those involved.

UPDATE: Among those named as receiving money from Malaysia in Trevino’s belated filing as a foreign agent is Christopher Badeaux. Here’s a small sampling of his Malaysia-related work at RedState.com:

“Najib Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, has been on a more or less singular crusade to convince the Muslim world — and the West — that there is a path for moderate Islam in the world, that Islam does not equal terror, and that the taking of a life is contrary to Islam and civilization. His speech at Oxford was of a piece with that….

The salient point here is not whether we agree with the prime minister’s theological assertions, but rather we can appreciate the extraordinary effort he is making here, and the importance for the United States of his efforts.”

And:

In Malaysia, Anwar Ibrahim, the leader of Malaysia’s opposition, has apparently been caught in adultery, with video evidence that Dartmouth scientists say nearly certainly implicates him. The major dailies are calling on him to resign. For three years, after failing to topple the governing party in the 2008 elections, he has crisscrossed the planet telling anyone and everyone who would listen how corrupt and evil the governing party is. And yet despite all of this — despite his stated certainty that his opposition coalition of socialists, Islamists, and yuppie liberals is the only chance his country has to avoid certain doom at the hands of the centrist coalition that has been re-elected time and again in Malaysia, he has refused to resign.”

“Then take it up with your God. As long as there are natural abortions it can’t be all THAT “wrong” to your God.”

Natural abortions? Miscarriages are almost always caused by there being something physiologically wrong with either the fetus or the mother. And most happen before the mother even knows she is pregnant.

God allows people to be born blind. Does that mean it’s okay to go around putting people’s eyes out?

“As he [Jesus] went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed through him.” – John 9:1-3

I gave no emotional response on Kyle. There is a REASON he gets very few hits and even fewer comments. It’s not because he is good. As to him being a liar? He lied to me. Several times. He lied to me in email which I won’t share with you. I know his guru, lil Davey Slagle. He also is a liar. Liars seem to like each others company, I don’t know why.

I liked your hypocritical personal attack. You condemn me for perceived attacks yet you then do your P/A snarky “grade appropriate” comment. I’m not passive aggressive, I’m a man and say whta I mean. You lack the intelligence to get “grade appropriate” with me son. It’s not my fault. Talk to those who gave you your genes.

You need to get a refund on that mind-reading class you took. They’ve done a bad job of teaching you.

Man was I had. You got me Jay. If I EVER meet you, beware the whoopie cushion……..

Reminds me of the time I golfed against Tiger Woods……………

So me and Tiger go golfing. I bet him 100 buck straight up on the game. Straight score no handicap or anything like that. I told him I get 2 gotcha’s though. He said Ok.

So as he’s teeing up at the first hole, dead into his backstroke, just as he pauses I come up behind him with my putter, stick it between his legs and tap him on his jewels and scream GOTCHA!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course I won. Have YOU ever played a round of golf waiting for the second gotcha?

Still not accurate, it was ‘delusional lickspittle wannabe’ a much
more derogatory term than delusional lickspittle…..

“Me thinks the lady doth protest too much”

Nope. You were completely wrong about my “excitement” – though I guess it’s possible to describe hilarious amusement as “excitement” if you’re inclined that way.

Jam, that is too funny. i’ve been using ass clown now every time I want to say ass…….. well you know. You might get away with the hyphen thing but I’m not pushing my luck.

MY favorite JT, (hope you didn’t play it and I missed it). Stupid me actually thought I WOULD see her again.
Oh and I picked this version after seeing your last JT just to remind folks that he DID once have hair lol.

Not gonna get distracted away from my mission to change the blogging world with music (LOL!), but I have zero patience with people who make claims and then always produce nada, nothing, zero, zilch to bolster them. Even when they are asked.

A complete credibility buster for this kid…

If there’s doubt and you’re cold,
don’t you worry what the future holds.
We’ve gotta have heroes to teach us all
to never give up on a dream.

Y’all ain’t NEVER gonna forget that one are you? I still never figured out why I was banned for that one…………….

josef: I fund thta song when my daughter wanted me to right her a play for her and her friends to perform for her birthday party last year. She said the title was to be “Being Me.” I typed that into Youtube to see what came up. That nice song did. Help that band out. Share it with everyone you know. Check out their youtube home page.
