Self-proclaimed propaganda chief and First-Amendment-hater Richard Stengel has been exposed… again.

Thanks to the Twitter files, Stengel’s project “Hamilton 68” — a propaganda campaign created by the political establishment to smear dissenting views as “Russian disinformation” — was proven to be a complete and total scam.

Here’s Kanekoa the Great with the rundown:

Stengel was behind the failed Hamilton 68 propaganda scam:

There was no evidence to support any of Hamilton 68’s Russian smears:

Stengel wants to eliminate the First Amendment altogether in favor of a Sanhedrin of Censorship:

Of course, Stengel is one of the worst lying smear artists spreading disinformation out there. Perhaps he’s simply angry at what he perceives as competitors butting in on his territory:

Stengel was behind GEC — the worst government censorship apparatus you’ve never heard of until now:

Elon Musk was all over this creep. As mentioned above, Stengel previous perch was head of the U.S. State Department’s Global Engagement Center (GEC)—a group that is supposed to be dedicated to promoting American interests abroad, but which instead worked closely with a DHS-backed censorship network to silence millions of social media posts on elections and covid-19.

Elon called out Stengel and his censorship-driven mission as a “threat to democracy.”

But if you’re a Revolver reader, you’re already familiar with Mr. Stengel, and you have been for a long time.

Back in October, 2021, Revolver first exposed the former senior Obama State Department official, along with the Pfizer-funded “fact-checker” organization Newsguard, where Mr. Stengel is a board member.


Newguard’s special concern for policing Covid information might have something to do with the fact that its third largest investor is a multi-billion dollar global communications company called Publicis Group. An excellent investigative report on Newsguard conducted by MintPress News revealed not only Publicis’ shadowy ties to the government of Saudi Arabia, but the fact that pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Bayer/Monsanto are some of Publicis’ top clients.

Newsguard peddles itself as an “internet trust tool” that rates the credibility of news and information websites and tracks online misinformation.

They actually call themselves the “Good Housekeeping seal” for internet news sites.

The 2021 Revolver piece took a deep-dive into the board members of Newsguard:

* Michael Hayden: former head of the NSA head and architect of national electronic surveillance system on US citizens, who went on to lie about the existence of said system (or at least engaged in vigorous deception) about it to Congress. After whistleblower Edward Snowden famously exposed the existence of illegal NSA surveillance on US citizens, Hayden revealed his attitude toward truth telling by (jokingly?) calling for Snowden’s assassination. In addition to heading the NSA, Hayden also headed the CIA—an organization renowned for its respect for truth. Hayden’s name appears hundreds of times in the Senate’s scathing 2014 report on CIA torture methods. Charming fellow.

* Arne Duncan: former Secretary of Education for President Obama. In his capacity as Secretary of Education, Duncan is perhaps best known for his defense of “safe schools czar” Kevin Jennings. Jennings came under fire when it was revealed that, as a school teacher, Jennings refused disclose to authorities his knowledge that a 15 year old student was having an illegal sexual relationship with an adult. A Washington Times report revealed that Jennings was also involved in promoting a reading list for children 13 years old or older that made the most explicit sex between children and adults seem normal and acceptable, and also praised Harry Hay, supporter of the notorious North American Man Boy Love Association. When these controversies were brought to light, Arne Duncan responded that Jennings was “uniquely qualified for his job” and that he was ” honored to have him on our team.” We wonder what it is about Mr. Duncan, then, that makes him uniquely qualified to advise a company like Newsguard, which is responsible for assigning Orwellian nutrition labels to news websites.

However, in terms of hardcore censorship, Hayden and Duncan were just the tip of the iceberg. Richard Stengel, a man who once called himself a “chief propagandist” is the dark underbelly of that floating block of ice.


Hayden and Duncan only scratch the surface when it comes to the list of censors and moral scolds advising Newsguard on which websites they deem suitable for consumption. Newsguard also features on its advisory board a man named Richard Stengel. Stengel is a former senior official in Obama’s state department who once described his role as being that of “chief propagandist”:

Yes, you heard that right. That is Obama’s former self-described “chief propagandist” at the State Department stating that he has no problem whatsoever with propaganda, and in fact supports the idea of countries using propaganda domestically against their own citizens.

That Newsguard chose this self-described “chief propagandist” of the Obama era to sit on its board is deeply troubling, and destroys any semblance of neutrality or credibility that would be needed in a company that insists on adding “nutrition labels” to determine which news site the cattle are allowed to consume.

Read the rest…

Here is a fascinating clip of Stengel discussing his role as a “propaganda artist.”

In the clip below, Stengel declares his dislike for Fox News, while begrudgingly admitting that Newsguard can’t give them a “red mark” as that would completely undermine their already thin pretense of “balance”:

However, of all the disturbing clips Revolver’s investigative team found on Stengle, this next one could be the most chilling.

In this clip, Stengel argues for curtailing the free-flow of information on the internet, and even proclaims that the First Amendment ought to be modified in the digital age to allow for the censorship of so-called “hate speech”—that is, presumably, speech that Rick Stengel’s former boss Obama and current boss Joe Biden hate:

And as Revolver correctly pointed out, this was not simply a one-off interview on Stengel’s part:

As reported by the New York Post, Stengel wrote a shocking op-ed in the Washington Post advocating for the repeal and replacement of the First Amendment in order to accommodate hate-speech laws.

Elon is right. This man and his mission are the real “threat to democracy” and freedom.
