Obama in Berlin Fighting ‘Disinformation’

Former United States President Barack Obama is touring Europe. Yesterday, he was in Berlin to catch up with his “old friend” Angela Merkel and deepen connections with current Chancellor Olaf Scholz. At the Mercedes-Benz Arena, he spoke about the dangers of disinformation, a topic not popular enough to sell out the 17,000 seats. Most don’t realize that Obama and Germany share a passion to hide truth—with a united goal to undermine what America stands for.

Democracy has always faced its share of challenges, but increasingly it feels like we’re at an inflection point: rising inequality, deepening polarization and widespread disinformation.
—Barack Obama

Shared goals: Funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (isd) founded its Digital Policy Lab in November 2020, which coordinates with different governments to achieve its goal of “safeguarding democracy.” isd’s main concern currently is fighting disinformation in regards to elections and the Ukraine war.

History with Obama: In 2015, isd started working with the Obama administration and, in the following years, with Facebook, Google, Spotify and YouTube. Since 2020, isd’s work and the goals of the Obama administration focused more on fighting disinformation in the U.S. about the coronavirus, the vaccine and the election. As our book America Under Attack explains, this was all done to cover up a stolen election.

United against Trump: Studies during Donald Trump’s presidency showed that Germany’s media coverage was almost entirely hostile toward him. Thus Obama and Germany found a common enemy. In 2019, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry suggested that Germany’s leader may be working to bring down the world’s lone superpower. Supporting the goals of the radical left by stirring up division is one way to do that.
