Wahlkampfmethoden in NRW: Forschen mit der Staatskanzlei
Parteilichkeit ist noch das geringste Problem: Der Wahlforscher Karl-Rudolf Korte hat der CDU gegen Bezahlung „wohlwollende“ Analysen bei der Landtagswahl in Nordrhein-Westfalen beschert. Und erntet dafür Kritik.
Quelle: FAZ

Anmerkung MB: Prof. Dr. Korte war auch am Aufbau des Centrums für angewandte Politikforschung (CAP) beteiligt, das u.A. von der Bertelsmann Stiftung getragen wird, und ist deren „Fellow“. Unabhängig geht anders. Und dass Prof. Dr. Korte immer wieder von den Sendern als unabhängiger Experte vor die Kamera gelassen wird, ist ein journalistischer Offenbarungseid.

Behind all these "foundations" and "institutes" is the US Agency for Inter- national Development (USAID), the financial branch of the Department of State. Today, USAID has become a critical part of the security, intelligence and defense axis in Washington. In 2009, the Interagency Counterinsurgency Initiative became official doctrine in the US. Now, USAID is the principal entity that promotes the economic and strategic interests of the US across the globe as part of counterinsurgency operations. Its departments dedicated to transition initiatives, reconstruction, conflict management, economic development, governance and democracy are the main venues through which millions of dollars are filtered from Washington to political parties, NGOs, student organizations and movements that promote US agenda worldwide. Wherever a coup d'etat, a colored revolution or a regime change favorable to US interests occurs, USAID and its flow of dollars is there.

How Does a Colored Revolution Work?

The recipe is always the same. Student and youth movements lead the way with a fresh face, attracting others to join in as though it were the fashion, the cool thing to do. There's always a logo, a color, a marketing strategy. In Serbia, the group OTPOR, which led the overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic, hit the streets with t-shirts, posters and flags boasting a fist in black and white, their symbol of resistance. In Ukraine, the logo remained the same, but the color changed to orange. In Georgia, it was a rose-colored fist, and in Venezuela, instead of the closed fist, the hands are open, in black and white, to add a little variety.
