Markos Moulitsas Is a Fake, His Daily Kos a Fraud

Eric Zuesse

Markos Moulitsas is a CIA asset whose service to the organization, certainly after he started his popular Democratic-Party propaganda-site “Daily Kos” in 2002, has been to shape the minds not of real progressives but of liberal fools (suckers such as this, a person who believed the lies of — and supported — Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders) in order to boost the candidates whom the U.S. aristocracy’s Democratic-Party contingent (which comprises around 25% of the U.S. aristocracy) want to be elected in Democratic Party primaries, to run against the Republican nominee, so that regardless of which of the two Parties wins, the aristocracy remains in charge of the U.S. Government. (This function, of manipulating Democratic Party primaries, is important in order to maintain the U.S. aristocracy’s control over the Democratic Party, and not only  over the Republican Party — over which they’ve long had a total lock-hold.) 

His operation blocks, from posting articles, anyone who exposes the aristocracy’s control over — and Democratic Party incumbents who service — the aristocracy; however, if the given submitted article exposing someone as being such a servant to the aristocracy, is being posted after  the subject’s electoral career has ended, then a writer who exposes that Trojan Horse ‘Democrat’ as having been  a fake, generally isn’t blocked from posting  further  articles and comments — Moulitsas is normally concerned only  to manipulate Democratic Party primary  election-results, and he therefore usually has no interest in blocking the truth about a Trojan-horse fake ‘Democrat’ after that person’s electoral career is over. His editors will let an article like that through.

For example, on 28 May 2016, he was arguing that Hillary Clinton had already effectively won the Democratic Party’s nomination and that everyone who had voted or would subsequently vote in Democratic Party primaries should thus rally around her in the general election to beat the Republican nominee, whomever that would turn out to be. He was ignoring (though he knew well; he’s a highly sophisticated person, with extensive background in the CIA, including even in its death squads in El Salvador when he lived there) that she might be indicted after the Democratic National Convention is over (July 28th) but before the November 8th general election, which would then inevitably hand the Presidency to whomever the Republican nominee would happen to be — but, from the CIA’s standpoint, that would be okay, and so “Kos” isn’t averse to an outcome such as that. 

What would actually disturb the aristocracy (and thus him), a great deal, would be for Sanders to win the Presidency.

One perspicacious reader there, who recognized Moulitsas’s fakery in that article of his, commented to it:

FishOutofWater  Must Have Been The RosesMar 28 · 05:41:03 PM

Kos is utterly dishonest here. Bernie is asking the superdelegates in states he *won* to support him, not Hillary. The linked piece *never* says that Bernie asked superdelegates to abandon Hillary in southern states that she won.

Bernie does not argue that the votes of southern state Democrats that went for Hillary should be ignored.

Kos, you should be ashamed of yourself. This is disgusting.

“Fish Out of Water” was the type of person who could well become blocked from posting future articles and reader-comments there.

On 22 February 2015, I had documented how this plays out, by headlining (at several websites but not at dailykos — because they had already blackballed me) “Dailykos’s Cover-Up of Obama’s Ukrainian Atrocities”, and, by reporting there (with ample links to the documentation) that:

Generally speaking, the falsely-called ‘liberal’ (some even call it ‘progressive’) website dailykos (founded and owned by the ‘formerly’ far-right Markos Moulitsas Zuniga) has ignored President Barack Obama’s coup a year ago in Ukraine, which violently overthrew that country’s unpopular but democratically elected President and replaced him with a racist-fascist (i.e., ideologically nazi) anti-Russian regime. It’s a regime that quickly set to work on a euphemistically called ‘Anti Terrorist Operation’ in its far-eastern region Donbass, where the voters had voted 90% for the very same man whom Obama’s State Department and CIA had just overthrown — an ‘Anti Terrorist Operation’ that kills its ‘Terrorists’ (i.e., the residents there) en-masse by firebombing, cluster-bombing, and shelling, the cities, towns, and villages, throughout the region. If those people survive and vote in future Ukrainian national elections, the nazi regime that Obama installed will be voted out of power; Obama’s 2014 Ukrainian coup will have been for naught. This is why he demands extermination, doesn’t object to it at all.

I should emphasize here the first one of those linked-to articles, which presents Moulitsas’s detailed rap-sheet as a CIA mole in the ‘liberal’ community:

I had come upon that after having quickly been blackballed from his site, after posting these two articles there that exposed Obama:

Immediately after those, I tried to post a third, but was blocked by a series of automated messages such as (whenever I would click on the “New Blog Entry” button) “Page not found! (404) The page you were looking for doesn’t exist. You may have mistyped the address or the page may have moved.”

Here’s a screen-print of it:


Also, the “Reply” button now became absent on the site’s reader-comments. There had been no notification from the management that I had been blackballed, much less why I had been, nor even that  I had been. It was impossible to communicate with them.

All of this is understandable within the context of the longstanding operations by the U.S. CIA, and the international aristocracy who control it, to control U.S. ‘news’ media. Here are some articles and videos about various aspects of that elite mind-control-operation, the way that this dictatorship manages to be achieved:

    Daily Kos may be the most diabolical achievement in the history of propaganda/controlled opposition.

  • June 15, 2016 The Next U.S Foreign/Military Policy From Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

    October 2011 as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan appeared to be ending: “There are those on the American political scene who are calling for us not to reposition [to Asia], but to come home. They seek a downsizing of our foreign engagement in favor of our pressing domestic priorities. These impulses are understandable, but they are misguided. Those who say that we can no longer afford to engage with the world have it exactly backward — we cannot afford not to…. Rather than pull back from the world, we need to press forward and renew our leadership. The Asia-Pacific represents such a real 21st-century opportunity for usto secure and sustain our leadership abroad.”

      Thank you for the enlightening article.

      The grand plan that “important” people have for us seems to be
      clear. Their scheme is unfolding as planned unless somehow
      they are stopped. The military industrial complex is
      driving the car, and we can’t get out.

    sanders and warren both are part of the fake, fraudulent democratic party: Bernie Sanders says he will work with Hillary Clinton to stop Donald Trump

    Bernie Sanders has urged his supporters to look beyond the Democratic presidential nomination in a speech that stopped short of fully endorsing Hillary Clinton but made clear he was no longer actively challenging her candidacy.

    is trump as well? if he fails to bring up the obvious/blatant vote rigging then he’s not even remotely serious about winning. sanders couldn’t be bothered to mention the 2.5 million uncounted ballots in california. what a truly pathetic campaign.

    trump must bring this issue to the forefront and hammer on it daily otherwise diebold and the democratic apparatus will coronate clinton, 51/49. 2016: it’s the cheating, stupid.

    • disillusionist

      I don’t think Bernie is fake. I think he reached a point where he could not get any farther in the system. He got surprisingly close to winning and put a scare in the controlling elite. The establishment must have pulled out the long knives on Bernie.

      Bernie proved that the public does not like the direction our country has gone in and are desperate for change. The public hasn’t been starved enough to to give up hope. For struggling Americans, to give up their much needed funds to contribute to Bernie’s movement to get us out of the downward spiral that the neocons’ and neo-liberals’ forcing on us, is unprecedented.

      The most apparent obstacle is that our legal system and department of justice have been neutered for regular people. The government no longer protects the public.

      As far as Elizabeth Warren is concerned, I have no idea why she supported Hillary over her comrade Bernie. If she had been on his side, I think they would have been unbeatable.

      • kimyo

        the recent sanders ‘i’m not dead yet’ activity is odd. it’ll be kinda sadly hilarious if the october surprise is a hillary withdrawal, leading to the need for diebold to re-program all their gear, resulting in a complete coast to coast touchscreen meltdown.

        a clinton endorsement indicates either complicity or utter ignorance. i won’t listen to a further single word out of warren’s or chomsky’s mouth. they are singularly unworthy.

        they are part of the apparatus and they must go.

        • disillusionist

          kimyo, you are very strict. I’m open to new information before condemning people for good.

          You said:
          “the recent sanders ‘i’m not dead yet’ activity is odd”

          I don’t know about that.
          Voting machines are a fatal flaw in our elections. The government won’t do anything about it. They know it is a problem but maybe they don’t care because they think our votes don’t matter. A sad state of affairs.

    This is Eric Zuesse, on June 17th. Two days ago, I submitted this article to all U.S. ‘news’ media. It ended up being published only at:,, and Only those three small-audience sites. All the rest hid it from their audience. Now, why would they do that? The documentation is all in it, via its links. The headline and story report and document that a rather well-known ‘news’ medium, and its owner Moulitsas (who is regularly a guest at MSNBC etc.) are fake ‘progressive’ and exist only to mislead and manipulate their readers/audiences. Is the most heavily censored fact in all of U.S. ‘journalism’ its own pervasive corruption and its being propaganda that merely parades as being ‘journalism’? Is a news story such as this article the equivalent, in today’s U.S., of samizdat in the old U.S.S.R.? Is that what America has become — a totalitarian dictatorship? Let’s discuss this. I’d like to know your thoughts.

      I just found your article in a comment from another post. It is amazing you didn’t have more comments. This opinion piece is posted on my facebook page and on my email list. You may have more comments soon.

  • disillusionist

    Eric Zuesse, I have also had the experience of not being able to respond on Daily Kos articles with no explanation. It was frustrating. I had no idea the Kos was doing it to me. At one point I wrote to them and told them I couldn’t make comments. I said that it was too bad that I couldn’t comment because I had a lot to contribute. No answer from the CIA.
    Te Daily Kos is not worth reading anymore. Thank you for your article.

  • I am very much on the left, and a (persona)l friend of Obama. I am for Medicare For All. On that ground alone, because I attacked early proposed versions of Obamacare, on the ground that they had no cost control, I was banned from the Daily Kos in 2009.

    Now there are plenty of people manipulated by the like of the Daily Kos which voted for Clinton, against Sanders. With the predictable result (I predicted it on my site, long ago) of electing Trump.

    KOS Media owes a judgment for $18,252 (including legal fees) that was issued by the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Columbia. Despite demands, KOS Media stonewalls and apparently does not want to pay its bills. We are surprised that Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, Chris Bowers, David Nir and Will Rockafellow appear to sanction this obstreperous conduct. A “respected” website like should at least pay its legal obligations. I guess the law of this land doesn’t mean a whole lot unless it fits with their agenda.

    Spot on take of the full on fraud Daily KOS. Aside from Markos Moulitsas suffering Politically Traumatic Stress Disorder from foolishly shilling for corporatist Hillary, Daily KOS is a steaming pile of disinformation.

  • Georgia Atkins

    So you went to Dkos and wrote two inflammatory articles about Pres Obama.
    Did you read the rules about Not-dissing Democrats. I looked at those diaries. Not surprised you got bojo’d. Takes more effort than writing a few blog pages to be a Kossack.

    Sorry you were banned, but really, those diaries were, not good. Especially, to introduce oneself with.

    I’m still there:
