Robin Koerner’s site “Watching America” as described by Wikipedia:

Watching America is a website that promotes global opinion about the United States by translating foreign articles from foreign newspapers into English. It was launched in 2005 by founder Robin Koerner. Watching America states its goal is “to reflect as accurately as possible how others perceive the richest and most powerful country in the world.”

The site posts newly translated articles up on a daily basis, along with a link to the original article. The translations are done by native speakers of the relevant languages. It currently translates articles from Arabic, Armenian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Persian, Polish Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, and Urdu.

Watching America is regularly checked out by American intelligence agencies, such as the Defense Department. Koerner states this is ""because we're doing some of their work for them...""[3] It has also been linked by Foreign Policy, The Guardian, Der Spiegel, The Christian Science Monitor as well as cited in various published popular books and academic sources as a source.

Where do I begin? Who is this guy working for now???? Why is his article always listed on the front page as a feature? Is Watching America now “Watching Daily Paul and Ron Paul’s supporters”? That’s just a tad creepy.

Your local NWO advance man will have a British accent because some people think that makes you sound “smart.” Fancy words about liberty don’t cut it for me. I for one don’t trust the Brits or any of their agents. From the redcoats who would’ve hung the heroes of our revolution in a minute to all the intrigue of the past 100 years described in the “Creature”, I don’t trust ‘em. No “special friendship” for me. Aren’t there any blogs in the UK petitioning David Cameron for more peace, liberty, and sound money. I guess not.

I describe myself as a reformed neo-con Republican who still believes in that other “barbarous relic”, nationalism, and who believes Ron Paul would return our country to its first principles. Last I heard, Dr. Paul is in a race to win the Republican Party primary in America. How the hell is that going to happen if this site keeps focusing on foreign, HuffPo writers? Those looking for any reason not to vote for him or to deny him the nomination will just tsk, tsk. Why not replace this guy with something from Lew Rockwell or Mises.org. Just sayin…
