Okay, is there anyone out there that still buys into ANYTHING that mainstream media writes or broadcasts? If so, you need to pull your head out of your arse! The majority of people that I talk to, are beyond sick of the disinformation and fake and/or cherry picked news.
For those of you that aren’t aware…CORRUPT OFFICIALS ARE FEEDING THE CROOKED MEDIA, and MAINSTREAM MEDIA AS WELL AS A LOT OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS ARE ON THEIR WAY OUT! To that I say, “Good riddance to bad rubbish!”
Anyhow, I happen to know a thing or two about disinformation and distortion campaigns created by media and public officials due to the high profile case against me: State of Minnesota vs Deirdre Elise Evavold- Case No. 19HA-CR-15-4227.
ABC’s 20/20, Newsweek,The Star Tribune, Sun This Week and other news organizations with the assistance of Lakeville PD and the Dakota County Attorney’s Office have created prejudicial and inaccurate news reports to mislead the public. Star Tribune reporters Brandon Stahl and Michael Brodkorb (no longer employed by the Strib) also did their own separate investigation and colluded with law enforcement to deliberately spread a false narrative about this entire case.

Holding Court Podcast
Ron Rosenbaum, attorney, longtime radio host and true Twin Cities character and his co-host, journalist Lucy Quinlivan, are Holding Court Thursdays at 2 p.m. .
The two outspoken hosts pontificate weekly on topics ranging from law and politics to media, sports and entertainment.
Excerpts from HOLDING COURT PODCAST Thu, 22 October 2015
Ron Rosenbaum: You are not going to want to miss our next guest, Michael Brodkorb, who in my opinion, has not only done outstanding journalism work on this case of the 2 missing Lakeville girls and the mom who was just arrested in Florida. I’m not convinced that had it not been for Michael’s dogged persistence on this case whether anything would have happened at all, including this arrest.
Lucy: I think that’s very possible because he spurred other coverage by the Star Tribune.
Rosenbaum: In a moment we will say hello to Michael Brodkorb. He has some new information that has not yet been reported. Now without further ado. Let’s say hello to Michael Brodkorb.
Michael Brodkorb: Thanks for the opportunity to be on.
Ron: I believe and Lucy does as well, that had it not been for your dogged persistence not only in reporting the facts about this case but literally uncovering facts about this case there’s not a doubt in my mind that this case would have died. For some reason it’s never appeared to me that the County Attorney Backstrom in Dakota County, has taken a great deal of interest in this and for a fairly long period, it appears the police didn’t’ either, believing it was a custody fight between 2 parents. What changed that Michael?
Michael: The first thing was the story by Brandon Stahl of the Star Tribune. That just blew open the doors on this and some of the comments made by the people involved close to this case and new information. Brandon’s story and others that have picked up on this, Democrats like Steve Timmer at Left MN who’s picked up and who’s a lawyer and has been writing on it. It’s been a collective effort.
Ron: Set up the basic story so that people understand this is really a complicated fact situation that sort of began with a battle between 2 people that were married and everything has flowed from that.
Michael: This was a custody dispute, this was a very contentious divorce going on in Dakota County and it spiraled out of control from there. It led to a situation where 2 parents and the courts stepped in. During a custody dispute involving 5 kids, 2 kids ran away. When this was originally discussed, this was looked upon as a case involving a couple of kids that simply ran away.
Ron: Michelle MacDonald has been a huge advocate that believes that family court is unfair. That’s probably an understatement. Apparently there’s a network of people around the country that are involved in keeping kids like this whose parents want to keep them out of family court.
Michael: There is a network out there, a historical kind of frame-up would be kind of an Underground Railroad where there are safe houses and people who are involved in the network in hiding kids.

Thu, 19 November 2015 4th Precinct Shutdown; Missing Teens Found
Ron: This was a custody battle that was not worthy of the criminal authorities and it was handled in family court. You have 2 missing girls for god’s sake. I’d like to think that we at least helped publicize this story.
I don’t want to rat you out Michael but there was a catch in your voice when you called me yesterday, almost like you were so emotional you could barely talk that the girls had been found. It must have been an incredible moment for you..
Michael: It was. I got a call from a source that was in the driveway that let me know the girls had been found inside the house. I couldn’t believe it. You think about yourself, as a parent you think about the 944 days these girls were gone and their father missed them.
Excerpt from article by Michael Volpe
Brandon Stahl/Minneapolis Star Tribune
Reporter Brandon Stahl was parked outside the Dahlens’ residence at the facility for abused children when the police raided it and found the girls. How Stahl knew to be there is unclear and raises the question of leaks, since the warrant to search the Dahlens’ home was sealed, noted Stahl: “Both advised that they have had contact with Doug Dahlen and believed that he would be cooperative. The search warrant and sealing order were signed by the Honorable Judge Glasrud. Sheriff Walvatne and Sgt. Cooks stated that they would assist with the warrant at the residence.”
Since the warrant was sealed, whoever leaked it to Stahl committed a crime, though Stahl himself did nothing illegal by receiving it. This was not the first time, however, that Stahl received a sealed warrant. The arrest warrant for ♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦♦♦♦♦ was also sealed in August 2015 and leaked again to Stahl, who wrote articles based on both warrants.

Michael: I spent the summer writing a series of posts, chasing down leads and doing as much as I could do to get interest in this case.
Ron: You developed a relationship with XXXXX XXXXX and his attorney Lisa Elliot
Michael: And the XXXXX family and sources on both sides of the issue.You get close to this story. You’re a parent, you’re a father and you think about your kids. I also have to pay compliments to the Lakeville Police Dept. and the United States Marshal Services. This story and how these girls were found is how it should have happened. There were opportunities throughout the summer and earlier for an enterprising reporter, for a journalist in this case to go knock on someone’s door and I made a decision a very long time ago I was not going to do that because I have no authority. If I find the girls they could run, they could go underground.
Ron: In other words you weren’t going to actively look for the girls, you were going to do the legwork to help people that would. Is it fair to say a major break in this case was when they arrested Sandra down in Florida? How long had she been on the run?
Michael: 8 weeks. There had been a warrant issued for her arrest for 3 counts of deprivation of parental rights. Ultimately, it became just a matter of time until they could be found.
Ron: They were found because of something that was found in the campaign manager’s (Michelle MacDonald’s) house.
Michael: There was a search warrant executed at Dede Evavold’s house in St. Cloud. She served as both the campaign chair and the campaign manager of Michelle MacDonald’s campaign. There was evidence found that led them to the White Horse Ranch near Alexandria.
Ron: Where are the girls now?
Michael: There in an undisclosed location in Dakota County and they’re getting hopefully the privacy and space that they need.
Ron: The fear is that even though the father has custody, the fear is that these girls are brainwashed.What happens now, is there any plan? It’s not easy to get unbrainwashed.
Michael: In speaking with family, my understanding is that these kids are going to get the space and help they need and the privacy they need to rebuild their family together.
Ron: There are people who deserve credit, Brandon Stahl, Michael Brodkorb the Lakeville Police, the Federal Marshals. I’ve never understood why Backstrom the Dakota County Attorney didn’t call a grand jury?
Michael: I think this case involves a series of complex characters. One of which is Michelle MacDonald. She can complicate a cup of soup. She has complicated this case from day one.
Ron: Do you think she intimidated them?
Michael: She’s just messy to deal with and I think if you’re going to be involved in a case that she’s involved with you’re going to have to dedicate a tremendous amount of resources. She has not cooperated-she’s a person of interest in the disappearance of these girls. She’s not cooperating. I’ll be very surprised if she wasn’t involved in some way and had some knowledge.
Ron: Where does it go from here? They could still do a grand jury couldn’t you-I don’t think that’s going to happen but it seems to me now that they’ve found the kids, the investigation is only begun.
Michael: Correct. I think where they’ll go now is criminal charges against other people that helped.
Ron: I’ve got to tell you that as far as this show. we feel privileged that you gave us the time in terms of being able to talk about this case as often as we did. Frankly it’s confounded me why the authorities didn’t take a greater interest in 2 children disappearing when there was a lot of reason to believe that they could find out where they were and who did it by some fairly simple investigative techniques which were not done by the county attorney.
Michael: I can’t thank you enough to everyone here for the opportunity to come on multiple times like I have. You’re one of the first people I called to talk about it because you’ve been so helpful.
Ron: The good news is the kids are back.

DEEP STATE / MAINSTREAM MEDIA PUSHES COUP D’ÉTAT AGAINST TRUMP
Elites want him impeached
MAY 17, 2017
IMAGE CREDITS: DAVIDKING / FLICKR.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Trump is the target of coup d’état being undertaken by the Deep State (intelligence agencies with a continuing commitment to a globalist New World Order) in conjunction with a corporate- and government-controlled mainstream media that believes Trump’s surprise victory in November 2016 can be reversed by getting Trump impeached before the end of 2017.
To achieve this goal, the Deep State and the MSM are employing classic techniques of propaganda and disinformation that were first utilized by Nazi Germany in the 1930s, only to be advanced and perfected by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
In a series of articles, I am going to explain how the propaganda and disinformation techniques operate, why they are effective, and how they must be combated.
In the 1960s, I was trained by Edward Bernays, the father of public relations, whose book entitled Propaganda: The Making of the Public Mind, first published in 1928, influenced Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda for Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945.
In the 1980s, I was recruited by a team of psychologists and psychiatrists and received a “Top Secret” clearance to participate in a State Department program aimed at teaching career State Department officials how to survive terrorist hostage situations – a project created in the wake of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran during the 1979 radical Islamic revolution in Iran instigated by Ayatollah Khomeini.
The First Principle of all propaganda and disinformation involves the manipulation of public opinion by the creation of a lie – known in today’s terminology as a “narrative” or a “meme” – that is crafted to be sufficiently credible so a persistent campaign of repeating the lie can change public opinion, even if the lie – the “narrative” or the “meme” – is totally untrue, concocted without any basis in fact, evidence, or reality.
Goebbels crafted a “meme” using the “science” of eugenics emerging in the 1930s to vilify Jews, resulting in the horror of the holocaust in which an estimated 6 million Jews were brutally murdered.
A current disinformation meme being advanced by the Deep State and MSM is the “Russian Collusion” meme that maintains Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to hack emails from the Democratic National Party as a tactic employed to defeat Hillary Clinton.
In the world of disinformation, it does not matter Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said publicly on May 4 that the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has seen no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign aides and Russian officials, or that the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on May 8 that he still has not seen any evidence of any kind of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian foreign nationals.
This is the first sign we are dealing with disinformation – namely, that there is no evidence for the claim.
To keep the lying meme going, the propagandist qualifies the claim, ever so slightly, as to leave open the possibility the claim could yet be proven true, if only the public could get access to the “real information.”
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, first began countering the “no evidence” fact with an assertion that there is “circumstantial evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia” – a statement he made on NBC’s Meet the Press for the first time on Sunday, March 17.
In his next move, Schiff pressured the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) to temporarily remove himself from the “Russian Collusion” investigation, after the House Ethics Committee decided to investigate whether Nunes may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information following his controversial visit to the White House to review reports the Obama administration had Trump campaign officials under electronic surveillance.
The Deep State knows the MSM-propagated “Russian Collusion” meme will simply refuse to print evidence it was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta that were being paid by Russia, or that Democratic National Committee computer expert Seth Rich was the one who hacked DNC emails, sending some 44,000 DNC emails to Julian Assange at Wikileaks.
Propaganda Corollary #1 is that any facts that disprove the disinformation meme are castigated as “conspiracy theories” – a term designed to disparage anyone bold enough to have perceived the truth.
It is essential to understand that a well-crafted disinformation meme like the “Russian Collusion” narrative is impossible to dislodge by facts that prove the narrative baseless, completely “without evidence,” or untrue.
Propaganda Corollary #2 is that anyone attempting to disprove the truth of the disinformation meme is targeted for ridicule as part of the conspiracy theory.
In designing a counter-disinformation strategy, it is important to realize the president of the United States is endowed by the Constitution with formidable powers.
This leads us to the following:
Counter-Propaganda Corollary #1 is that well-crafted disinformation memes cannot be refuted or defeated by the truth.
Counter-Propaganda Corollary #2 is that what is needed to take all the air out of a well-crafted disinformation meme is a greater, more immediately crisis that demands the 24/7 attention of all Deep State actors and MSM propagandists.
Among the president’s enormous powers, we find the power to change the subject, effectively taking the disinformation meme off the table.
How President Trump can defeat the Russian Collusion meme by changing the subject is the focus of the next article in this series.
