Former Hillary Clinton Campaign Advisor To Speak With European Officials About Countering ‘Disinformation’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A current Biden administration official, and former advisor to Hillary Clinton during her presidential runs, will speak to European officials in the coming week about countering "disinformation."

    The official, James P. Rubin, who is the special envoy and coordinator for the State Department's Global Engagement Center, will be in the United Kingdom until February 28, which will be followed by a trip to Belgium on March 1.

    "In London, Special Envoy Rubin will meet with UK officials to solidify support for counter disinformation efforts. In meetings with UK counterparts, he will discuss efforts by Russia, the People's Republic of China, and other actors who deploy disinformation to undermine democracy and national security around the globe, and how our nations can collectively counter threats in the information space," the State Department said in a statement.

    During his London trip, which began on Thursday, Rubin will take part in the Phoenix Challenge Forum, a conference that is put on in part by the Department of Defense and the U.K. Ministry of Defense.

    The goal of the conference is to "drive knowledge collaboration and solutions across Defense and Security Organizations, Academia, Private Sector and International Partners to address complex issues related to Cognitive Security, Information Competition & Conflict, and Malign Influence."

    In Belgium, Rubin will also speak with European Union officials about countering "foreign disinformation."

    Rubin, who was a foreign affairs advisor for both the Clinton and Obama administration, was part of Hillary Clinton's failed 2008 and 2016 presidential runs. During the 2016 campaign, Rubin suggested that Donald Trump was working with the Russians to hack Clinton's emails.

    "So the idea that a candidate for president is aiding and abetting a foreign power in its intelligence operations is, as I said, unprecedented. We really don't know how to describe it, except I think it's the clearest possible evidence of being - of the fact that the nominee for the other party is unfit to be commander-in-chief," Rubin claimed in response to Trump calling for Russia to release the emails.

    He also suggested Russian President Vladimir Putin was in support of Trump's candidacy because Putin believed that Trump would have a more favorable foreign policy toward Russia.

    Democrat claims about Trump colluding with the Russians ended up falling flat, as an investigation headed up by Robert Mueller found no evidence of any collusion. Subsequent studies have also found that Russia's influence on the election was much less than previously claimed by Democrats and the legacy media.

    Rubin also has worked as a contributing editor for POLITICO magazine where he blasted Trump and his foreign policy in several columns.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
