Here's an article from Russia Today that says Marine Le Pen wants to withdraw France from NATO because NATO only serves US interests.

The US MSM may or may not cover this story, and anyone is free to question its accuracy:

Regardless whether the story is accurate, it means nothing. Le Pen is like Trump. She says whatever she thinks will appeal to the audience of the moment. She'll say this in Russia Today and say the complete opposite the next day to an American news agency. What these people say is only a means to get into power. What they'll do once in power is a wholly different issue.

John McAfee agrees with Julian Assange that the Russians didn't hack the US elections:

How likely are we to have this story reported by the AP or other US MSM?

John McAfee is a notorious lunatic. Assange thinks Hillary Clinton is the Great Satan. Not much credibility here.

In other words, posting by AP or MSNBC is quite likely to follow.

Speaking of which, what happened to Glenn Greenwald? He seems to have drunk some nasty kool-aid and is little more than Julian Assange's doppelganger now!

Increased "strategic manipulation of perceptions" is needed, among other things, in order to stall the sun's setting on the US Empire:
