Yes, Not only are his stories fake news, kind of practical jokes but is Baxter Dmitry himself a practical joke. All said and done. Concur with VT Truth Jihad and PCR.org. However,  here at Phiquyenchinh.org we will keep both this “joke” and our comment on it posted for pedagogical purpose. Learning never ceases particularly from mistakes. It does teach all of us how to read NEWS these days!

I have taken down the Baxter Dmitry article

I have taken down the Baxter Dmitry article. Apparently, he is one of these people who like to make practical jokes out of serious matters. PCR

A New Joker in the Deck

A thread was recently started concerning a “report circulating around the Kremlin” to the effect that Putin holds GMOs, vaccines, and junk food responsible for turning Americans into fat zombies. This supposed report certainly appeals to some folks’ confirmation biases, as it was no doubt intended to. The Kremlin “tell” is misleading, though. This non-news was not produced by our old friend Sorcha Faal. but rather a new fabulist writing under the handle “Baxter Dmitry.” Here is a screen capture of the most recent articles he has contributed to yournewswire.com:

Some of these articles are extremely funny, and I would like to think that they are clever satire. Here’s the problem: this is not a satirical site like The Onion. They intermingle real news with shoddy propaganda and outright hoaxes. The editor is a man going by the name of Sean Adl-Tabatabai . (Nice Irish-Arab name, eh?) He definitely has a point of view. Let’s examine one of the stories bearing his byline:


Netanyahu Cancels Elections, Vows To Serve Until At Least 2023

Israel have canceled a planned primary election for party leadership, placing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the leader of Israel until at least 2023.

[Edit for brevity. –DJW00]

Netanyahu has been Israel’s prime minister for almost a decade.

yournewswire.com…[Emphasis mine. –DJW001]

Sure sounds like Netanyahu has mounted a coup. Here’s the problem, the article intentionally does not explain that the election that was cancelled was not a general election. That’s right, it was a primary election to determine party leadership… and yet, the author claims that Netanyahu will be the leader not of the Likkud Party, but leader of Israel until “at least 2023.” Even Sputnik, the source cited, made that distinction clear:

Here is another article by the editor:


World War 3: Washington Has Iran-Middle East War On Agenda

Iranian naval Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi has accused Washington of going ahead with their plans of a Middle East war amid ongoing and deliberately orchestrated chaos and violence originating from the Pentagon.

The Commander says that Washington is intentionally provoking Iran into military escalation, due to a desire for World War 3.

Globalresearch.ca reports:

His remarks followed seizure of two small US vessels illegally operating in Iranian waters, briefly detaining their crew members.

Before their release, “the US navy and a US aircraft-carrier showed unprofessional behavior for about 40 minutes and made some moves in the air and the sea in the region,” said Fadavi – provocations risking direct confrontation.

Now this does sound like something an Iranian hardliner might say, so I tried to trace it back to its source. First stop: Globalresearch.ca!


Does Washington Plan Greater Middle East War? Is War on Iran Still on the Pentagon’s Drawing Board?

The region already is cauldron of endless violence and chaos. Is Washington planning a scenario of military escalation.

Iranian naval commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi accused Washington of reckless moves, risking war with the Islamic Republic.

His remarks followed seizure of two small US vessels illegally operating in Iranian waters, briefly detaining their crew members.

Before their release, “the US navy and a US aircraft-carrier showed unprofessional behavior for about 40 minutes and made some moves in the air and the sea in the region,” said Fadavi – provocations risking direct confrontation.

Think about it. At least Globalresearch.ca had the honesty to phrase the headline as a rhetorical question rather than a fact! For the record, here is the FARS reporting that inspired this echo chamber:


US Reckless Moves in Persian Gulf Could Trigger War

TEHRAN (FNA)- IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said the US warships were making irrational and unprofessional moves after ten American marines were arrested for illegally entering Iran’s territorial waters on Tuesday.
Admiral Fadavi’s remarks came after the IRGC seized two US Navy boats Tuesday and detained them on Iran’s Farsi Island in the Persian Gulf.

“After that the US navy and a US aircraft-carrier showed unprofessional behavior for about 40 minutes and made some moves in the air and the sea in the region…but calm was restored to the region with the timely action of the IRGC forces and came under our 100 percent control,” Admiral Fadavi said.

The IRGC Navy commander reiterated that his forces are in full control of all waters of the Persian Gulf and Hormuz Strait.

Note that the Iranian source does not attribute intent. Instead, it warns that clumsy moves could destabilize the srategic situation. You will note that the Admiral does not characterize the American ships’ actions a being provocative. Rather, the point seems to be that the Americans had poor discipline, leading to a confused situation that the IRGC was able to restore to order.

In conclusion, ATS members should approach yournewswire.com with all due skepticism, and treat anything that Baxter Dmitry posts as a [HOAX!].
