Is there a Liar’s Press?

By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

In recent times, some new political movements have arisen in Germany. For example the political party “Alternative für Deutschland” (AfD), founded just three years ago, has won several seats in German State parliaments at the most recent election, a few days ago.

In Dresden (a city in the German State of Saxony), thousands of people go regularly on quiet “walkabouts” on Mondays, without any disturbance, unless provoked by others.

What’s their “Beef?”

Among their various complaints is one specific and rather novel term: “Die Lügenpresse,” a term that means “liar’s press.”  What the people mean by that term simply is purposely false or misleading information propagated by a large segment of the media, from newspapers to television reportages and – as much of that information is frequently “fed” to them by government sources and, by extension, also such governments.

Really, do the media lie? Ever?  Isn’t it any good reporter’s utmost concern to state the facts, unadulterated by political desires, interpretations, or any wishful thinking?

If you are unsure, let me give you a recent example, an article on a coal-fired electric power generation plant in Jänschwalde, Brandenburg, Germany.

To wit:  On March 17, 2016, the widely circulated and in the past highly respected German newspaper “The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” had a post with the title ”Keine Lust auf Braunkohle” (No desire for lignite) in their business section with a photo showing dark clouds emanating from that power plant’s six cooling towers, as shown above:

The caption to that photo reads (translated from German):  ”This photo shows quite clearly how dirty lignite [coal] power plants are – and the electric energy produced there!!! – D.U.”

Yeah, Really?

Really, is it true that the cooling towers of that power plant are belching out “black” smoke visible for miles? You be the judge of that – after you look at the same power plant from above, as shown in the following screenshot taken from Google Earth Pro on March 22, 2016 (imagery date: 9/4/2014):

Same power plant seen from above

In that second picture, you don’t see any black clouds but rather snow-white steam (a mixture of water vapor and droplets) emanating from these cooling towers. Even more telling is the fact that any visible “residue” of that “black smoke” (as suggested in the caption of the first photo) disappears completely within a short distance from the sources.

I think you’ll get my drift here: there appears to be a stark contrast between the two photos of the same power plant cooling towers and what they may actually show or not. One thing is clear to me: they provide quite different messages and that is not by coincidence.

In my view, it’s all part and parcel of the “need for decarbonisation” theorem propagated by a variety of people and organisations that espouse crazy projections of the world’s climate supposedly overheating because of the mankind’s use of fossil fuels—despite a couple of decades now without any sign of such a “cataclysmic” warming but still rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.
In short: This so-called “carbon pollution effect” is a myth.


So, is there actually a “liar’s press” with purposely misleading articles?

YOU be the judge of that and what you think about the “Lügenpresse” claims, in Germany or elsewhere.

  1. Dr. Kaiser is correct, been around cooling towers where I work & live, all you have to do is be on the right angle with bright sky in background and steam will look black as coal. Those pic’s are what spoiled brat liars do when they don’t have anything else.

    • And if you can’t get the sun in the right place there is always photoshop. Gone are the days when the camera never lied.

    • Yes, squatterman, you are correct. And anyone who has a lick of sense knows that cooling towers emit water vapor not smoke. Ergo, there is a Liar’s Press.

  2. You are correct Mr Kaiser. Propaganda comes in many forms. It tells our teenage daughters which clothes to wear, and our teenage boys which music to listen to, then in later life which cocktails or beers to drink. Look at the blitz of advertising a decade or two ago aiming lager at youngsters. Then look at the most successful brewery company’s to see advertising working it’s long-term wonders. This CO2 malarky is the environmentalists version of propaganda, coercing the public hive-mind through constant and persistent lies. Eventually the lies seem to be the truth. And if you dare to speak or think otherwise then you are labelled a rebel without a cause, going against the wishes of the mainstream, or simply ‘a crank’/’nutcase’! The Bosnian Muslims didn’t stand a chance, neither did the WWII Jews. Do we stand any better chance when the poop hits the global fan within the next decade? When all else fails there’s always HOPE _ yeah right!

    • No, Bad news and lies sell more advertising space than good news and truth. Which is why Fiction is far more popular than Non Fiction, and you can add most if not all of the religious texts into the fiction group.
      Word of mouth tribal romances last much longer in the tribal mind than dry as dust fact, .and that old chestnut – “He, who wins the war, writes the history”.

  3. Thanks Karl, for highlighting this most despicable practice by so-called “news” media. Since the start of climate alarm, the printed Press in its newspapers and scientific Journals as well as the BBC online and on TV, have fallen over themselves to outdo one another over the degree of danger, pollution and evilness of humans who still dare to use “fossil” fuel. There has yet to be produced a single verifiable piece of evidence to show that carbon dioxide – in its totality – controls the temperature of the atmosphere, never mind the tiny contribution made by burning those “evil” “fossil” fuels. Have put both evil and fossil in quotation marks as neither of those two characteristics have ever been proven. There are more “fossil” fuels available today than in the 1970’s when the world was warned that “we are running out of petrol”.
    It’s true that the telling of a lie goes down better than the telling of the truth and it is also true that “the bigger the lie, the greater the acceptance of it”. Carbon dioxide can only act as an extra coolant in the atmosphere, never as a heating agent. Imagine if it could add heat by the so-called re-emission of earth’s own infrared energy: engineers would have long ago designed heating equipment that gave off more heat than the energy put into it!

  4. The same tactics are being used in the UK as well and no doubt in America. And so yes, the media do lie on a regular basis, and the leader is the BBC. And yet there are petitions to “save” this propaganda organisation which ignores the Royal Charter under which it operates.

  5. For the example given, the paper is lying because it is making such a positive statement about what the picture depicts. The article has a point to make and that is that braunkohl pollutes. It is a subjective article.

    The other point about papers these days is that most of them are incompetent and ignorant, and either can’t or won’t fund proper journalism so there is a lot of content that relies on external sources to fill the page. Climate junk science is a classic where a press release forms the article. We know that 99% of their press releases are alarmist nonsense and often misrepresent the research or report that they are about. After mainly filling the article there will be a brief quote from a go to opposing view.

  6. Of course there is a Liar’s Press. Liberals who control most of the press have an agenda that is similar, if not exactly the same, as the liberal politicians who lie to their citizens. Between the war on CO2 and the Muslim problem (oh yes, there is a big Muslim problem in Germany, as well as the rest of Europe) Germany is going to destroy itself and it won’t be pretty.

  7. I cant believe that we are so technologically advanced and people have no idea of how “chemical” (ie gas, oil, coal) energy is transferred into “mechanical” energy. It is all about steam!!! and after being used through a turbine, it is condensed back to water, and reused again as steam. Cooling towers are exactly what the word means. Transfer of temperature from one closed loop system to another. Almost as bad as city folk not understanding where their food staples come from!!! We are doomed folks and it isn’t going to be mother nature that will be human’s demise. It is going to be idiots that cant “read, write or add/subtract”. What ever happened to “questioning minds” going and figuring out the answers for themselves? Are the “sheeple” leading the sheep now. Makes me so mad!!!! Hopefully evolution is going to make “thumbs” obsolete.

    • Do not worry Judy,

      we have trans-humanism kits available now which allows you
      to evolve a child or adult to your specific desire!

      D.A.R.P.A. has no secrets of hiding this info. The military is
      being upgraded first(military terms)rrrrrrrr. We the “sheeple”
      will be second, and you best not refuse to ascend.

      Have a good day!!!

  8. Another exaggeration by greenies i.m.o. is “acid minewater”. I was a geologist on a Witwatersrand gold mine for some 10 years before retirement. During underground visits one could see fresh exposures of pyritic reefs becoming completely oxidized within a few years. In an abandoned mine there should be no pyrite remaining to react with underground water. (Pyrite actually oxidizes in air not water). Decanting water from old mines are brownish due to iron rust particles in suspension, of which a major proportion probably originates from rusted cables, pipes, tracks, etc.
    Water of the Grootvlei G.M. on the East Rand, a target of the local acid water blogger, Mariette Lieferink, had a measured pH of 7 (neutral), yet was claimed to be “acid as vinegar”.

  9. Even the virtually transparent smoke stack gases are relatively benign as they are well filtered these days. The real pollution issue comes from the fly-ash pile. Traces of mercury and few other heavy metals in coal end up being concentrated into the residual ash.
    They try to give away the fly-ash pile to cement manufacturers as it makes a reasonable filler for bags of cement instead of the usual ground-up clay or shale.
    Mt Piper, NSW, is built on a river that drains into Sydney’s main reservoir so control of any water escaping from the ash dam is a tightly monitored issue.

  10. The common people (the cattle) have always been lied to by the rulers (the parasites) since civilisations started. Its getting worse now, their telling bigger and bigger lies , and the cattle are getting dumber, (the dumbest ones are breeding more). Globull warming is believed so widely because the sheeple believe, if the MSM reports on it so much, it must be true.
    The good thing to come from this scam eventually being exposed, is it’ll wakeup a few of the sheeple.

    It started to wake me up 9 years ago, because I got the internet, giving me an alternative to the MSM BS.
    The globull warming scam is just one of a great many. there’s a lot that are even bigger.

    Noticed in the other comments, some of you are still being taken in by other scams. The best thing to do is throw out everything you’ve ever been told or assumed (a clean sheet), and base everything learn from then on, on provable facts, not hearsay or beliefs.
    I’ve realised about 80% of accepted science, history, and religion is BS.

    • “if the MSM reports on it so much, it must be true.”

      Its just that sort of belief based on dead reckoning that deceives so many. I have a family member who is quite conservative but believes that AGW “Glo-Bull warming” is real because, when it comes to Big Media, “They can’t ALL be lying!”.

      Sure they can. And they do quite regularly.

      Die Lugenpresse ist die Grossenpresse – Big Media. Owned and ruthlessly controlled for the benefit of those in control. Those would be the same ones who desperately want to STAY in control.

  11. In Australia the ABC, SBS, Fairfax and Guardian sprout climate change propaganda, while The Australian newspaper has a more balanced approach.

    There are a lot of Trots in the ABC newsroom.

  12. One of the main functions of the press today is to divide people. The leaders we are being offered are doing the same thing. The elite have always known that they must keep us divided and at each other’s throats because, as Alex Jones pointed out, there are a lot more of us than there are of them.

    The only chance the people ever have is grass roots cohesivness, rallying behind a leader or principle (remember Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite?) that unites them.

    I sure don’t see any such leader on the horizon today. And the Enemy’s efforts to divide us have become extremely pervasive, thanks to the invasion of the media into every corner of our lives.

    First step-throw out your TV and start thinking for yourself.

  13. Enviromentalists have been taking pictures of clouds coming from cooling towers for years and claiming it is proof of pollution. Reporters and editors looking for sensational news stories have been falling for it for years. You can cure ignorance with knowlwdge but stupid is forever.
