  • Blabbermouth Kutev lashes out at Peevski

    Blabbermouth Kutev lashes out at Peevski

    There are useful and useless people in the opposition. Left-wing MP Anton Kutev does not fall in the first category. He is something like a reformer, something like an internal oppositionist, to put it bluntly – something like nothing. Nevertheless his presence in the public space is all-pervasive. Nothing bad in it, if the man has a penchant for public performance and his fellow party men encourage him in compromising them along with himself.

  • Agent Sasho’s radio-themed piece against Peevski

    Agent Sasho’s radio-themed piece against Peevski

    Iliyan Vassilev, aka Agent Sasho of the former State Security, has long proven himself to be an expert on everything from energy and finance to national security, international relations, domestic politics, etc. There is no topic he feels unprepared to speak on. This week, his now regular opinion piece is about the Bulgarian National Radio (BNR), which he believes is doomed. Even Peevski cannot save it, he says.

  • Prokopiev and Kostov’s mouthpiece team up to hit a bank using fake about Peevski

    Prokopiev and Kostov’s mouthpiece team up to hit a bank using fake about Peevski

    The indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev met the quota of his own edition Capital publishing once again a fake targeting lawmaker and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski. Quite expectedly, it was readily copied by another key cog in the oligarchic Fake News Factory, namely Mediapool run by Stoyana Georgieva – spokesperson for ex-premier and mentor of the behind-the-scenes clique in Bulgaria, Ivan Kostov.

  • If Peevski was from Razgrad…

    If Peevski was from Razgrad…

    A staggering level of accord has been observed with the puppets of oligarch Ivo Prokopiev and fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev – in complete unison, both groups embraced the new “Pazardzhik – Peevski” talking point. But if someone has to be awarded the badge for setting the tone, that honour goes to the screeching democrats of the Capital circle.

    Reporters’ lies without borders: Peevski does not have a sister

    “Talk about him having a promiscuous woman for a sister, and let him prove that he does not have a sister at all” is a tried-and-tested mechanism of defaming. On that score, the international organisation with shady connections Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has once again remained true to its style by serving yet another dish of lies and manipulations about “Peevski’s sister” in the form of a report.

  • Peevski, mimicry of agent Sasho and Pavlov’s dog

    Peevski, mimicry of agent Sasho and Pavlov’s dog

    Incredible, but true - the works of Karl Marx apparently were not the only bed-side books of the communist State Security agents. The favourite work of tyrants – The Prince by Machiavelli was for sure among the books which they learnt by rote. At the present day they continue to apply his postulates to practice, especially one of them “if you want to achieve your goals, don’t disclose them.”

  • Capital wants to drive train of power

    Capital wants to drive train of power

    The Capital Circle is obviously trying to hope on the government train and drive it, as it has done in PM Boyko Borissov’s previous two governments. This furious desire of the indicted oligarch Ivo Prokopiev is made fully transparent in the latest issue of his weekly newspaper with negligible circulation Capital.

  • Agent says something about Peevski to Frognews

    Agent says something about Peevski to Frognews

    The expression “a woman said” has been adopted and transformed by the website Frognews. The modern version is there to be seen on the platform of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev, which is officially provided by journalist Ognyan Stefanov, aka Agent Academician of the former State Security. Instead of “a woman said” (at the market), the motto serving as banner over the libels and lies spread by the website is “an agent told” (Frognews).
