    Fake Trump Nomination For Nobel Peace Prize Investigated





    The Nobel Peace Prize awarding committee is investigating an allegedly fraudulent nomination of President Trump for the coveted international award, according to Wednesday reports.

    "I can say that we have good reason to believe that [Trump’s nomination] is a fake," Nobel Institute Director Olav Njølstad told Norwegian broadcaster NRK, according to the BBC.

    Njølstad did not say whether the committee has specific suspects, but the Nobel Institution has filed a report with the Norwegian police, according to Spanish news agency EFE.


    Potential recipients can only be nominated by a select group that includes national ministers, members of parliaments, certain university professors and former honorees.

    He added that there was no precedent for similar fraudulent nominations, with one exception.

    "The same 'fake' nomination probably took place last year too," Njølstad said.


    Peace Prize nominations are collected by the Norwegian Nobel Committee — all other Nobel prizes are awarded in Sweden.

    Peace Prize nominations are due by Jan. 31 each year, and the award is announced in October. The committee keeps the names of nominators secret for 50 years, unless they agree to make themselves known.


    Former President Obama received the award in 2009 for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples."

    Who dun it? Colonel Mustard in the library, or Putin, buttering Trump up?

    It's notable that the Prize Committee made a police report. I suppose this is a crime.

    Your thoughts?

    Sounds like a practical joke. The practicality is finding the right opportunity to mix his nomination with all the others.

    And right on cue, the Reich wing blogosphere vomits up this lie.

    From Daily Wire

    Here’s something you most definitely haven’t heard in the mainstream media: President Trump has been nominated for the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize.

    The MSM is too busy trying to sell the Trump-is-Russian story and ignoring the wiretapping of Trump Tower. So we’ll fill you in.

    Trump is nominated for “his vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, ISIS, nuclear Iran and Communist China,” according to a report by Agence France Presse.

    Note: If true, this is significant as the AFP is the French equivalent of Reuter's. But what the AFP actually reported was that this nomination was a suspected fake.

    https://www.afp.com/en/news/23/trump...ke-doc-11g7w51


    While there were early rumors Israel may push the award, Trump was nominated by an American.

    Note: Nobody knows who is on the committee or who submits even bona fide nominations except the committee itself.

    “A near *record 318 people and organizations are in the running for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, the Nobel Institute said on Thursday, the motley crew believed to include Syria’s White Helmets, Donald Trump and Pope Francis,” AFP wrote.

    “The names of the nominees are kept secret for 50 years, but those entitled to nominate candidates – including lawmakers and government ministers, former laureates and some university professors – are free to reveal the name of the person or group they have nominated.”

    Of course, there’s little chance the liberal group would award one to a Republican. Hell, Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War and he never got one.

    Note: The Nobel Peace Prize Committee is a "liberal group"? Because....liking peace is liberal-esque?

    But the Nobel committee loved Barack Obama, who famously received the Peace Prize less than nine months into his tenure just for creating a “new climate.”

    Its ex-secretary Geir Lundestad said that was a mistake.

    “Even many of Obama’s supporters believed that the prize was a mistake,” he said. “In that sense the committee didn’t achieve what it had hoped for.”

    Trump mocked Obama in 2013 for the award. “Our NOBEL PRIZE FOR PEACE president said ‘I’m really good at killing people’ according to just out book Double Down. Can Oslo retract prize?” he wrote on Twitter.

    And that is the fake news about this fake news, whilst the news of this fake is reported by the ACTUAL media.

    Apparently not. This was meant to be spoonfed to those who get their "news" from the Reich wing blogosphere....and it might still be effective at that.

    lol... the prize is a joke. It's no longer some amazingly esteemed award.

    They gave it to Barack Obama for nothing. There was no reason.... at all... but they handed him one.

    This sounds like a prank. You know they would never honor Trump even if he got North Korea to back down and reunite with the South and the Middle East to go with peace.... at the same time.

    Uh, no. I completely agree with you that Obama's award was baseless and did damage the prize, but I disagree that the whole prestige enchilada was lost with that faux pax.

    The young lady who championed education rights for Muslim girls after her face was disfigured in a vicious knife attack is a huge heroine to young people around the world, and received her prize after Obama received his.

    He hadn't done shit except be black and get elected. And while that WAS an amazing accomplishment, it was absolutely not Nobel Peace Prize worthy.

    Obama did not "accomplish" being black. The glass ceiling he broke through has not been shattered.

    It was completely inappropriate, less than a year into his first term. And even moreso, after his 8th year!
