Run for your lives: INVASION OF THE FAKE NEWS!



As deliberately outrageous as my little opening fake 'grindhouse' horror movie trailer script there was meant to be, the real world "Fake News" response being pushed is no laughing matter. Considering the hysterical precedents currently being chiseled into silicon over this whole idea, my fake trailer script isn't too far off from the portrayals we're being fed. Given the sources of the hysteria, it's par for the course, for as we'll see, the sources now trying to censor the entire web are historically the masters of such fabricated overkill doom mongering. Meanwhile, the style of "Red Scare" censorship coming to every computer near you is literally straight out of China. All will be told in this shocking edition of PREVENTING THE FOURTH REICH!


Propaganda must confine itself to very few points, and repeat them endlessly. -Hitler


First and foremost, a quick review of what propaganda is, and is not. Outside of Nazi Germany documentaries, the word "propaganda" isn't normally a word you'll hear very often. In such documentaries, we're typically left with it being some mysterious powerful 'thing', and it's usually built upon deceit. Propaganda can be mostly deceit. It can be entirely true. It can even contain the whole truth (which is rare). But those things don't define propaganda.In truth, in its most simple definition: Propaganda is any communication that purveys persuasion and / or deliberate diversion. Any form of marketing advertisement is always propaganda, whether it be a TV commercial or a political yard sign. One might expect "News" to not be propaganda, but rare today can be found a piece of news reporting that doesn't somehow advocate, omit, or isn't meant to distract. So in a nutshell, pretty much everything on television is in fact propaganda. When it comes to TV Network News we're talking approximately 98.27308% PROPAGANDA no matter what channel you're playing (yes that means CNN, and FOX). This very article you're viewing will go on to advocate against this "Fake News" push for CENSORSHIP, and therefore it is propaganda. That doesn't mean it isn't true. It doesn't mean you should or should not be against it. The reality is, its something bordering on impossible for humans to communicate and it not be 'propaganda', and that's why the Internet-wide banning of 'propaganda' is what I believe to be on of the greatest dictatorial thought policing threat this nation has ever faced.

Now, let us start from the beginning...


I need you to image a place. This place is a nation. Like any nation, it has a society. Like most societies, in this one each individual in it has been raised with a general vision of what it is. Their vision of what is is equally rooted in what it is not. As much as in any place there ever was, this society's national self-perception is like an obsession. In this society there are many different groups, many of them more like factions, and yet for most individuals, across each era this vision remains mostly the same. This vision is one to be admired, and fought for, because for the most part it embodies the best ideals that human societies have ever achieved. That this is a nation of humans is not to be overlooked.

Now imagine that in this nation what it has become is not what the society was raised to expect it to be. Their very belief in it, their very own idealism was twisted against them their entire lives to prevent them from hardly ever realizing the inescapable truth: that the nation has become everything that it is supposed to be against; everything that it was founded on. Humans are a very peculiar species after all. They scream to be individuals, and yet crave to be part of a crowd. They strive to free, and yet yearn to follow order and rules. They demand truth, and yet beg to be lied to for the sake of their ego. They want to be in control, and yet fantacize about being controlled.

And then the truth sinks in: they've all been lied to their entire lives. With their Parents it was about some holiday patron saint. With their News Media it was about the Government. With their Government it was about the Nation, in particular regards to its Military, but about pretty much everything else of consequnce. The Big Lies have been playing out for so long its all an endlessly tangled web of fictions. These fictions are so deeply ingrained into this schema that many of those most involved in spreading them are themselves true believers and completely naive about the situation. It's all so well matured that the Big Lies from the top down are scientifically designed to play on those listed incongruities in human nature. Over the decades, more and more the Big Lies have craft-fully evolved into playing on other aspects of human nature, including the most powerful of all: Sex, Fear & Tribalism.


This is all America of course. This is the synopsis of US. We're raised on the American dream, which is mostly rooted in liberty and prosperity, with a particular flair for being anti-imperialistic. After all, it all started with rebellion against an imperialist monarchy. It was a vassal colony of it, and rebelled. It went on to lead the world in the idealism of freedom. Despite its troubled history, it came to represent the most prosperous and diverse nation in the history of the world. And yet by the time it reached these heavens, the control schemes of tyrant robber barons have been in play for so long they have us our great nation poised to strip them away from both ourselves and the rest of the world.


Despite recently closing hundreds of bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States still maintains nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad—from giant “Little Americas” to small radar facilities. Britain, France and Russia, by contrast, have about 30 foreign bases combined.

www.politico.com...


To start at the beginning requires what I call the "First Truth", which is the reality that America over the past few generations (since WW2) has de-evolved into the very global imperialist system that it had rebelled against in 1776. This fact is indisputable, although hardly ever spoken and typically scoffed at when it is. Yet it's impossible to debunk, as we shall see. This Big Lie runs deep into our social fabric: it itself and our society's ignorance & denial of it. This Big Lie is literally codified into our very language, and this part is no accident. One perfect example is how on 9/11 nobody seemed to know why we were attacked. I'm not alluding here to anything to do with what are known as "9/11 Conspiracy Theories", here I'm specific about the very premise of why the hijackers and the culture that spawned them hated us.

The notion of American empire may be useful propaganda, but it isn’t borne out by America’s current policy or by public opinion. -Obama


There's hardly a better example into code breaking the official language used to shape our perceptions than the way they used the word "freedom". "Freedom itself was attacked this morning", said George W. Bush, on 9/11. On the surface, for anybody familiar with the Islamic World and their perception of US in it, this would be a patent lie. How could anyone honestly argue that the ijackers went to all that trouble to suicide themselves the way they did because how dare you choose whether or not to believe in a god, or whether you prefer Bud Light or Corona at "beer o'clock". To crack the code here there's a little more to this Rosetta's Wheel. When they say things like "US interests were attacked (wherever)", now the reality can be grasped. What they're talking about isn't your or my intersts. They're talking about corporate interests, which tend to have to do with the profit motives of the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC). Now when we apply this logic to Bush's "freedom was attacked" statement, along with US foreign policy in the Middle East, it becomes clear: this "freedom" he was talking about is in fact imperialism. As I argued a decade ago: "Freedom" = Imperialism: It's in the Language. Another choice example into this 'dark language code' is this statement: "America is the last remaining superpower". In the 90's as a youngster I'd hear that term and as awesome as it sounded I'd often wonder what does "superpower" actually mean? Consider war documentary coverage across all of TV. Despite it sort of being the oldest war where there existed abundant camera accessibility, one might get the impression that World War 2 was the only war.

Well if you dig and play the right original propaganda films of the era, in reference to Japan & Germany, anti-imperialism was one of the specific motivating causes we took up arms as an entire nation against them for. The other reason that is too often the only war 'TV' rams into our heads, aside from being the greatest war of course, this was the last truly noble war "we" fought. In WW2 we defeated the world imperialist powers. This left the USA & USSR standing, then dubbed the 'last two remaining superpowers'. Eventually we won the long con game of the Cold War, and and a con it was for the peoples of both sides, with much of the rest of the world at the heels of each side. As John Pilger eposed in his 1983 documentary, "The Truth Game", aside from the basic tenets of Capitalism vs. Communism, the propaganda utilized by the governments of both the USA & USSR against their own people in regards to justifying global imperialism were indistinguishable.


This is where propaganda comes in. Note that modern propaganda is art & science of both persuasion & diversion, but add into that mix omission, distortion, euphemism, censorship, fear and dehumanization. With those eight points the bulk of the imperialist propaganda model comes into view, and with that the mechanism of what the 'News Media' aka Mainstream Media (MSM) is becomes apparent.


Eleven Years On: How ‘The Washington Post’ Helped Give Us the Iraq War
In the months before the war, The Washington Post ran more than 140 stories on its front page promoting the war.

“We are inevitably the mouthpiece for whatever administration is in power.“ —Karen DeYoung (WaPo Reporter)

While persuasion & dehumanization are key factors in driving a population to war, omission & censorship are also key. Omission can be as simple as leaving out a key paragraph in a specific story that would be the one to rile public outrage. The bigger issue is the omission of key perspectives on the larger narrative in which a story would fall under. This part right here is central to our entire societal ignorance that I've been alluding to so far, which is so deeply infused into the system that in practice it operates under bonafide censorship.


Take Iran for instance. When the hostages were taken in 1979, the MSM failed to convey the perspective found given the fact that the CIA overthrew their democratically elected government in 1953 (for BP oil no less). If the public had known that fact, and the fact that that embassy was a forward operating base for the CIA to maintain its subversion of their nation, then the outrage over it would have been contradictory. How pissed could people have been if they realized that the situation there was their version of our Independence Day... from US! Following that came the Iran-Iraq War, which was instigated by the US government, and was surely justified if pressed to it over retaliation for the Hostage Crisis. That war was particularly brutal with something like 800,000 killed, where it was the last example of the classical [rl=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_wave_attack]Human Wave Attack[/url]. Ask yourself, how many documentaries about the Iraq-Iran War have you ever seen on the History Channel? You've probably heard of the Iran Contra Scandal, which with it we found the US government arming both sides of that war. Later, after 9/11 "Dubya" effectively declared and enacted war on Iran. This was over their nuclear weapon aspirations, where if you were them could you blame them for wanting self-assurances of liberty from the US? So here by omission, all that backstory we just covered was non-existent, Iran = bad guys just because, and we NEED to stop them from becoming a nuclear power. Another convenient omission from the general narrative of the time, and still yet later under Obama (whom pardoned Bush for all of his war crimes), was the fact that Bush's foreign policy team was a carbon copy of the war criminals from the Iran Contra Scandal (where CIA drug running was the key factor in the equation of supplying Iran with weapons).


With all of this, sure, if you go looking for it you can find bleeps & blips of it in the "news", but across the ages this perspective is hush hush. It's so foreign to people's frameworks of history and the world they tend to scoff and howl when presented with it. And all of that is on the MSM's shoulders. Sure, the government had the agenda and all that stuff, but it was the job of the MSM to be the watchdogs, not the lapdogs. By the nature of it this corporate media plus our corporate militaristic government, lapdogs is by & large all the MSM has ever been for multiple overlapping generations now. What they're left us with, or rather kept under, is a fake reality about the world by ourselves by which they whip us into supporting their global hegemonic schemes (for those whom aren't lost in the diversions they pander us with).


Now that the FAKE NEWS subject is becoming the inherent topic, at this point its crucial for everyone to understand the concentration of media ownership in this nation (which is the model for the Western World). That graph there sums it up rather nicely. Not only is 'all' the news feed to us through the filters of these six crony mega conglomerates, but so is all of the entertainment. It shouldn't come as any surprise that nowadays CNN is little different than TMZ, huh? Given all of the suppressed perspectives so far, it is to be expected, especially today. Now that the Internet and its mechanization of social media is taking away their control of mass communications, if there were crony tyrant robber barons at the helm of our nation then it would become apparent in their arenas, right? Well it is here, and its called their 'FAKE NEWS Censorship Agenda'.


Now of course there is actual fake 'news' (i.e. hoaxes) out there in the troll infested Interwebs, so please keep in mind that top down censorship of 'news' & perspectives outside of the hoax material is what is the point of this entire piece. There should be fact checkers out there to check them and people should check for the facts and the hoaxes in most of anything that would influence their opinions. It turns out we've already had all that, yet lately seemingly out of nowhere the top down trend is this hysteria that we need censorship to come swooping in to save us. Although satire could be classified as "fake" news by the language & rhetoric we're already seeing, the censorship scheme it's mostly being played off as 'stopping the Russian's from influencing our elections'.

Now before we tear that whole situation to pieces, we first need to continue on in this expose of the ultimate purveyors of FAKE NEWS and false realities in the Western World, which is our own government and their MSM lapdogs.


One thing that can be said of Communist domestic propaganda of old & new is, compared to Western propaganda the Commie's had a history of at least being something resembling honest in comparison to what we've been getting. They've always been far more honest about what they are, so honest in fact that when people would try to protest they just send in the boots and the tanks. They leave people no chance to garner false impressions about their situation, and the people knew full well that they weren't free. Now this isn't to be admired. Yet when you add up the truth about what has been done in our name, and we've had no say in any of it, we've been under the rule of something as sinister. Sure we can say and think we are free, that the system isn't just as diabolical or oppressive, but that doesn't mean that it ultimately isn't.

Across this piece this should become entirely apparent. And now the real cruel part of this long running long con of a sick joke, is their new "FAKE NEWS" censorship agenda of scrubbing contrary views from the Internet they are rather quickly becoming the Communist Censorship Model proper.

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free
William Blum, an investigative journalist in Washington, DC, writes in his excellent book, Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower:
"Overtly and covertly, legally and illegally, the military-industrial complex (in the United States) has joined forces with the prison-industrial complex, linked further to the omnipresent national security-police complex, all clasping hands tightly with the War on Drugs, in a declaration of War on the American people and the Bill of Rights. This Authority juggernaut - enamored with its own perpetuation, glorification and enrichment - has convinced the American public that without its storm troopers all hell would break loose and the safety and security of the citizenry would be on a life-support machine. In this undertaking, it has had the indispensable assistance of intimidated legislatures, an uniconoclastic judiciary, compliant media, and a president --- who - in the words of civil-liberties columnist Nat Hentoff - 'in this century ... has afflicted the most harm on our constitutional rights and liberties."
Blum then presents a list of civil rights abuses that he culled from public sources (i.e., newspapers, journals, etc.) that occur regularly on a day-to-day basis in the United States which - when taken together - show with unmistakable clarity how far "civil rights" in the United States have been eroded and how dangerously close we are today to being a police-state [OPEN PAGE TO SEE THE LIST]



The War On Drugs (WOD) is a perfect place to set about our journey into the Establishment's dark arts of mind molding. The merits of the WOD, and the reality of alcohol being 'worse' than the most brutally controlled drugs, and the well documented long history of the CIA maintaining global drug pipelines (often under the guise of the War On Terror), all are beyond the scope here. On topic is the Federal government and their MSM lapdogs charade of a noble crusade against drugs, which is more of a study in thought control driven by decades of real world FAKE NEWS.


What better portal into everything this piece is about than the War On Marijuana (WOM)? Note that the very term 'marijuana' was a practically a fabricated buzzword riddled in racism crafted for their film & print driven scaremongering campaign. They went as far as rolling up exploitation films wielding their buzzwords and sinister themes to whip the public into a delirious frenzy. The impact of films such as Reefer Madness (1936), Marihuana (1936), Assassin of Youth (1937) and She Shoulda Said No! still has much of the masses getting high on the oppression pot users this day. Never mind the fact the the very same government released Hemp for Victory (1942) to encourage national farmers to take up Cannabis cultivation to supply crucial hemp fiber for the effort in World War 2. Aside from that 'useless fact', one might expect they'd have learned their lesson about prohibition as the WOM kicked in 1936, just after the disastrous Alcohol Prohibition era ended in 1933. To their credit, "Marijuana" wasn't hardly a thing back in those days, yet the Prohibition model would go on to dominate official policies for every other drug of recreational potential in later decades, while the 'Big Story' here is all about the nations addiction to government driven fear mongering narratives and media productions.


The WOD related trend of scaremongering media would continue on to cover other drugs without warrant. This isn't to get into the minefield of heroin and coc aine, which do cause serious problems. What has been a trip to observe is their war on 'mind expanding' drugs such as '___' & MDMA. One good example is from the 1990's with the governments FAKE SCIENCE brain scan study about how supposedly MDMA was turning people into vegetables. This report followed in their tradition of FAKE SCIENCE studies such as with "Marijuana Causes Brain Damage" and "'___' Causes Chromosome Damage", all of which has been debunked over the decades, yet still continue on as policy guiding urban myths to this day.


Classroom scare films along these lines were prominent back in those days, and were often collaborations with Hollywood studios. Note that back in the 1930's not everyone even had radio's yet, while in the 1960's color TV was still too rich for most households. In these days films were made for classrooms, as well as as shorts to be included at theater matinees, and sometimes were even the feature presentations themselves. In more recent decades, such public service announcements (PSA) scarefilms tend to come in the form of TV 'commercials'. The most famous PSA of my generation was "This Is Your Brain On Drugs", although it's far from the most skin curdling & outlandish. Backing up a tick though, more direct to this expose would be the "Red Scare" film ridden propaganda drive of that same era.


There's hardly a better historical example of an over the top piece of doom monger porn than The House In The Middle (1954), or as I like to call it "CLEAN UP AND PAINT YOUR HOUSE OR DIE (1954)". This piece was produced by the "National Clean Up - Paint Up - Fix Up Bureau", and centered around little sheds up against atomic bombs out at the Nevada Test Range. In hindsight, it plays out like slapstick humor as if you pause the shots you can tell the houses not in the middle were designed to ignite into fiery infernos. My favorite scene is where they have big piles of crumpled newspapers all poofed out pinned down with chicken wire up against a dry rotted wood fence. This film short is so remarkable that at least once a year, for a decade now, I pull it up and sit in awe in its absurdity.

This film really tells the tale that has come to define our entire society: an addiction to fear by both the government in wielding it and the masses in consuming and being driven by it. Famous author Michael Crichton would go on to write a novel about this very subject, State of Fear (2004), which was ultimately centered around environmental doom mongering. He hadn't set about his initially, he was simply following his normal 'science disasters' storytelling themes and wanted to do one where a disaster along the lines of environmentalists concerns could play out in rapid fashion via ecoterrorism. His research for it began with studying actual manmade disasters, but the worst ones he could find he kept finding the same trend where the media reports during the events would be like ten times or worse than the eventual hindsight realities. People into the "Global Warming" debate will likely know 'all about' this novel, although I fear the actual point of what this book came to be has been entirely missed by all but who have actually read it...

Crichton claims, that throughout history, a geo-political-media phenomenon has created undue fear, intentional misunderstanding, and a social environment that allows those in power to control the masses. The Cold War Era threat of communism; Y2K; nuclear threat from Saddam; Bush’s “War on terror”; ISIS; and now climate change are all possible examples of tactics that have been used to sustain this state of fear amongst the masses. www.kth.se...



A key concept, delivered from the eccentric Professor Hoffman, suggests, in Hoffman's words, the existence of a "politico-legal-media" complex, comparable to the "military industrial complex," of the Cold War era. Hoffman insists climate science began using more extreme, fear-inducing terms such as "crisis," "catastrophe," and, "disaster," shortly after the fall of The Berlin Wall, in order to maintain a level of fear in citizens, for the purpose of social control, since the specter of Soviet Communism was gone. This "state of fear" gives the book its title. en.wikipedia.org...


This "Culture of Fear" reality, and one of the largest mechanisms driving it, can be referenced back to General Douglas MacArthur and President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and is not to be shrugged off as poppycock.

Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear-kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor-with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it... -General Douglas MacArthur (1957)


On Jan. 17, 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower gave the nation a dire warning about what he described as a threat to democratic government. He called it the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC), a formidable union of defense contractors and the armed forces. www.npr.org...



Flash back to 1945. The USA & USSR just concluding mopping the floor with Germany & Japan... as allies. The entire industrial structure of each great nation was geare around production of military hardware, and each of these remaining were "Superpowers" (global empires). The industrialization of militarization never really ceased for either parent state of the two empires, while the two competing with each other became the means to ensure constant production of military wares in a global theater of mostly proxy wars to ensure perpetual demand. The clandestine activities of the CIA & KGB were each the primary vehicles in establishing the conflicts and maintaining the covert & overt supply chains & demand for the global weapons trade. With the CIA, across their entire history to the present, maintaining the global drug pipelines for the international black market has been a means of generating covert cash to pay for their endless games of secret wars. Wars which never ended even after the fall of the USSR. Instead, increasingly handing over our economy to Communist China has become the acceptable practice along with adopting more and more of their oppressive state mechanisms (as evidenced harsher than ever with this new FAKE NEWS Internet censorship agenda). For anyone who grew up on the kind of Red Menace cultural engineering that went on back during the Cold War red scarefilms era.

‘Make Mine Freedom’ – 1940’s Propaganda Film Ironic Today
The freedoms it claims are to be taken away by the “ism” here, a thinly disguised amalgam of communism, socialism and fascism, have instead been taken away by the ism it promoted without naming, Capitalism.


Unions have been stripped of power, and now are bordering on collapse. Business managers now are beholden to hedge funds and no longer can run their companies. Politicians are prevented from speaking freely else they are cut off from the campaign contributions required to even run for office. Farmers now cannot store their seed for next year due to corporate patents. It is precisely what the PSA warned us about, but it came about due to Capitalism. ...The United States had a fantasy that we were better than other nations. Now, our poverty is crippling. We house more prisoners than any other nation in history. Our police are little more than uniformed thugs with military equipment.



Along the way of fighting Nazism during World War 2, "fighting Communism" in the Cold War, and all of the petty warmongering ever since, America has more and more become the very despotism we were supposed to be against. In a free society only by secrecy & deception can such a long withstanding tyranny self-perpetuate, and as such the tyrannical shadow regime that have been the true power behind our system have ever more become the most well polished deception machine it as a whole ever could be.

To try to zoom all the way out unto this macrocosm gets into the murky world of crony multinational corporations & central bankers, which too easily goes beyond the scope of this volume. This level of power is perhaps best understood as the "Corporatocracy", and it is an important topic in this discussion because of the way media & industry ownership interlocks with government influence & agenda-setting.

The concept of corporatocracy is that corporations, to a significant extent "own" or have massive power over governments, including those governments nominally elected by the people, and that they exercise such power not by back-room conspiracies but by their enormous, concentrated economic power, and by legal in-the-open mechanisms (lobbyists, campaign contributions to office holders and candidates, threats to leave the state or country for another with less oversight and more subsidies etc). As Oliver Stone explained, "Wall Street, you know, you could say... runs the world. Wall Street, the pharmaceutical lobbies, the oil lobbies, they run our government". First, corporations provide financial support to competing political parties and major political party candidates. ...Second, in many cases former corporate executives are appointed as powerful decision makers within government institutions. ...Finally, the economic regime, while often called 'free market,' involves centralized economic planning and coordination by corporations, with governments playing the role of an assistant to such corporate central planning. wiki.mises.org...


We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. ...It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries. -David Rockefeller (June 1991)



To expand your view into this realm see my "The 'Patriarchy' is REAL" chapter for more insights into the world of the corporatocracy. Here 'agency level' resolution is all the definition we need in this diorama. The games the FBI & CIA play on the US citizenry via the MSM & Hollywood are over the years well documented and understood. A key subject of interest here with the FBI is their Operation Mockingbird, while with the CIA it is their Office of Public Affairs.



Operation Mockingbird
Operation Mockingbird was a campaign by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence media known for a fact to have operated at least during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Evidence of its continuity may possibly include the false mainstream media assertion of the existence of WMDs in Iraq that led to the 2003 invasion of Iraq and ongoing efforts to label Wiki leaks documents as "fake news" by the same media outlets that were implicated by name by the Church Committee congressional hearings.[citation needed] Begun in the 1950s, it was initially organized by Cord Meyer and Allen W. Dulles, and was later led by Frank Wisner after Dulles became the head of the CIA. The organization recruited leading American journalists into a propaganda network to help present the CIA's views. It funded some student and cultural organizations and magazines as fronts. As it developed, it also worked to influence foreign media and political campaigns, in addition to activities by other operating units of the CIA. The CIA's use of journalists continued unabated until 1973, when the program was scaled back, allegedly finally coming to a halt in 1976 when George H.W. Bush took over as director. However this cannot be proven for a fact as the majority of documents pertaining to this operation were destroyed by the CIA while the Church Committee investigations were underway, undermining the credibility of the extent of the CIA's cooperation with investigators.



How the CIA Hoodwinked Hollywood
Since its inception, the agency has wooed filmmakers, producers, and actors in order to present a rosy portrait of its operations to the American public.
The CIA has a long history of “spooking the news,” dating back to its earliest days when the legendary spymaster Allen Dulles and his top staff drank and dined regularly with the press elite of New York and Washington, and the agency boasted hundreds of U.S. and foreign journalists as paid and unpaid assets. In 1977, after this systematic media manipulation was publicly exposed by congressional investigations, the CIA created an Office of Public Affairs that was tasked with guiding press coverage of intelligence matters in a more transparent fashion.

The agency has established a very active spin machine in the heart of the entertainment capital, which works strenuously to make sure the cloak-and-dagger world is presented in heroic terms. Since the mid-1990s, but especially after 9/11, American screenwriters, directors, and producers have traded positive portrayal of the spy profession in film or television projects for special access and favors at CIA headquarters.

Ever since its inception in 1947, the CIA has been covertly working with Hollywood. But it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that the agency formally hired an entertainment industry liaison and began openly courting favorable treatment in films and television. During the Clinton presidency, the CIA took its Hollywood strategy to a new level—trying to take more control of its own myth making. In 1996, the CIA hired one of its veteran clandestine officers, Chase Brandon, to work directly with Hollywood studios and production companies to upgrade its image. “We’ve always been portrayed erroneously as evil and Machiavellian,” Brandon later told The Guardian. “It took us a long time to support projects that portray us in the light we want to be seen in.”

So those are two choice historical examples of the government and media synergistically meddling with our perceptions via our cultural interfaces to them and the world. Other 'FAKE NEWS' initiatives & examples are so endless not only with just the DOD alone, but just during the Cold War Red Scare period alone. The most melodramatic climax of the Red Menace culture was McCarthyism, of course. McCarthy never went on to bust a single Soviet agent, but his witchhunt did manage to cause some 10,000+ innocent Americans to lose their jobs.

There's a scientific term for the bulk of what I've been describing so far, and that is the Politics of Fear. This term is sometimes used as a buzzword in a raw politic sense, although most people probably haven't actually read any papers on it. While a politician like McCarthy can certainly go off the deep end spouting forms of political fear, in terms of social psychology in the face of power, it's more about how governments and media themselves wield fear. Here in the US, it all tends to go hand in hand between government & new media, as they are so converged. The government 'gets it's' agenda's and drives them through the MSM, and the MSM tend to have their on little agenda's, and they do tend to have the same ultimate endgames when you look at them. The politicians 'themselves' want say a war, and the MSM wants ratings, and fear sells, so the government cooks up its doom narrative smut for the MSM to peddle. The government gets its war, and the MSM get their war to report on and gets those ratings. That's an overs-simplified explanation for this 'Government & Media-Industrial Complex', as when you factor in the realities of the corporatacracy, there are even deeper motives on the MSM owners end, and they have deep influence into the realms of government that helps motivate the politicians to find the wars for the MSM to peddle.


So as Crichton talked about in State of Fear, this whole thing has been going on so long it's deeply ingrained in our culture. One might argue that it's effectively become a 'manufactured need', that out society is actually addicted to it, thus necessitating ever more doom for them to dig up and monger. Or at least that's probably how they rationalize what they're doing. One thing I'm convinced of is the way the whole scheme keeps playing out the bulk of the people in the MSM have to know what they're doing. The best is when stories that expose important elements of it directly and go around enough even they report on it. Yet it runs deeper, as no professional journalist could make it to the top without knowing full well about it. From the CBS News website:

Fear is the most powerful enemy of reason. Both fear and reason are essential to human survival, but the relationship between them is unbalanced. Reason may sometimes dissipate fear, but fear frequently shuts down reason. As Edmund Burke wrote in England twenty years before the American Revolution, “No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.”


There are many subjects that trigger fear. It always seems the .gov and MSM never fail to miss an opportunity to deliver it regardless the issue,and then there are the issues that are totally wrapped in fear. Of course there's everything to do with war, or rather the wars constantly being sold and spun (which has more been the 'conservative' Culture of Fear vehicle). Same goes for the environment and all of its 'doomsday' forms.


Our Founders had a healthy respect for the threat fear poses to reason. They knew that, under the right circumstances, fear can trigger the temptation to surrender freedom to a demagogue promising strength and security in return. They worried that when fear displaces reason, the result is often irrational hatred and division. As Justice Louis D. Brandeis later wrote: “Men feared witches and burnt women.” -Al Gore, The Assault on Reason www.cbsnews.com...


That's a pretty incredible acknowledgement for Al Gore of all people. What Al Gore and his brand of 'Global WARMongers' don't like to talk about are realities such as dubious data, corrupted data, the , the en.wikipedia.org..." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">weakness of humanity's instrumental temperature record, politically biased scientists, the flaws & limitations of the computer models, histories contrary to the IPCC assertions such as the Little Ice Age not, CERN's "CLOUD" findings, or other concepts such as the roles of [url=/jk436c7]sublimation & coal dust in glacier degradation. Now this isn't to insist that the earth isn't warming, nor is it to insist that humans have no cause in these effects. The fact is nobody knows what effects a hypothetical doubling of CO2 would cause, how fast a doubling will actually happen, while the reality is there really isn't much we can currently do about it short of imploding the world economy via hasty response in line with establishing the global dictatorship to enforce it. Never mind the world wars that would cause, just the economics bit alone is a big enough story in that hardly nothing destroys the environment and leads to explosive population increases like poverty. Yet we hear the the global warming alarmists push on about destroying capitalism, labeling climate change as "racist", putting climate skeptics in prison and setting up a world government.

As I've pointed out the in past:

The Einstein's of today have numerous designs for Generation IV nuclear power plants. Over 95% of the potential fuel in uranium ore is wasted using today's less safe GenII and GenIII reactors. GenIV plants promise vastly more safety, and potentially less than 10% of the physical footprint of today's reactors. These reactors, coupled with next-gen pyrometallurgical processing, promise to utilize the vast 'reserves' of what we currently refer to as "spent" nuclear "waste". Just going by the stores of current waste, humanity could be powered for over a century, without having to mine more radioactive ores. The problem is environmentalists oppose anything to do with nuclear energy, and newer generation plants have been prevented since the 1970's. In the U.S. we're using plants built in the Three Mile Island era, and large funding of nuclear development has been thwarted. In the meantime, obscene amounts of nuclear waste has built up and has been ejected into the atmosphere via burning coal. -The Global Meltdown of FEAR



If people could get off the fear kick and cool their jets, the technologies we need to solve these problems are coming, yet Al Gore still just couldn't help himself but include nuclear blast imagery in his propaganda film campaign (along with lots of other crazy stuff like the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami).


Moving on, then there's all the other odd boogeymen we're constantly spooked with such as 'power lines cause cancer', 'super germs' and everything to do with say organic non-GMO foods. And never mind the crime wave boogeymen that help fill in all the gaps. Where things get really messy are when it comes to children. Ever see where one after another all year they'll all be pushing these 'high profile' kidnapping stories (certain years anyways). They don't do it every year. I call them 'off years' when there's not enough other bads news to run their hysteria machine with. It also seems these trends arise when major domestic surveillance of the more personal tracking variety arise as public debates. This whole 'high profile abduction' thing is such a perfect example of so much of what wrong with the MSM. You see every year there are some 300+ 'high profile grade kidnappings', yet if they're really that important then why aren't these being shoved down our throats constantly? Why do they come in trends with all of the primary outlets running in lockstep with them?

I highly recommend all people from time to time web search: |"politics of fear" "pdf"| to best stay mindful of these trends.

The bigger issue is how with essentially any of the domestic statistics related stories, when they get on their roll their reporting of them is often grossly over-representative of actual demographics. Three hundred 'high profile kidnappings' per year sure sounds like a lot, but then again there are over three hundred million people in the US. Considering this, the frequency and intensity they ram stories home with are often way off the mark in instilling FEAR in the masses as if the kids are just getting snatched up off every street. For reality, ask yourself how many classmates did you know -or do your children know- that have been abducted?


Now I haven't had TV in over a decade, so I'm not entirely in tune with the chronologies of drivel they put out, aside from what gets talked about online and makes the front page. I don't know that they've been much covering kidnapping stories in recent years, but I'm well aware of the over-reporting of the school shooter cases (as well as any other "ACTIVE SHOOTER" story). It also falls under the "diversion" metric in this 'Modern Western Propaganda Model', where as long as they have these heart wrenching stories pumping out continuously then it keeps people perpetually distract from the sorts of things going on in DC that they ought to be pissed about. Active shooters would be a good example of when government agendas line up with the media's ratings whoring methods. For the government, they get the emotional diversions (from what they are up to) in as a general benefit, especially under any liberal regime that would prefer a disarmed public then the payoff is twofold.

The bigger issue is the way they cover the run of each active shooter story (which I cover more in depth here). In these kinds of cases they make celebrities out of the shooters not in merely covering the stories, but by the way they cover the stories. This is well documented, and by means of the Social Contagion Effect they ensure never ending cycles of copycat shooter events. I've covered the Contagion Effect / Copycat & demographical reality angles related to the active shooter phenomenon in other postings. Here I'd like to stress that this aka Emotional Contagion Effect is an important subject as it's the linchpin across this article, it's is the underpinning mechanism that drives social crazes & mass hysteria (I expect it also plays heavily into [url=http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread1143732/pg1]conformity as well):

The Contagion Phenomenon
Two centuries ago, a wave of suicides swept across Europe as if the very act of suicide was somehow infectious. Shortly before their untimely deaths, many of the suicide victims had come into contact with Johann von Goethe's tragic tale "The Sorrows of Young Werther," in which the hero, Werther, himself commits suicide. In an attempt to stem what was seen as a rising tide of imitative suicides, anxious authorities banned the book in several regions in Europe (Phillips 1974, Marsden 1998).

During the two hundred years that have followed the publication and subsequent censorship of Goethe’s novel, social scientific research has largely confirmed the thesis that affect, attitudes, beliefs and behavior can indeed spread through populations as if they were somehow infectious. Simple exposure sometimes appears to be a sufficient condition for social transmission to occur. This is the social contagion thesis; that sociocultural phenomena can spread through, and leap between, populations more like outbreaks of measles or chicken pox than through a process of rational choice. web.stanford.edu...



Across these chapters (as well as across my hundreds of other works the past decade) these kinds of mechanisms of human cognition and potential manipulation are regular topic. And in every case, long before I ever lived the corporatocracy's social engineers have been masters of utilizing such exploitative techniques always at the state of the art across the generations, in molding the society and its attitudes and support in their desired image. Pick any war, for example, and the same story can be told again and again in manipulation to get us to support going in, and in staying the course. More importantly however, is the self-censorship on the part of the MSM in ensuring that the national identity isn't perceived by the bewildered herd as being an evil empire.


At that point, the facts were secondary. In the case of the Washington Post reporting, I asked more than three decades later whether there had ever been a Post retraction of its reporting on the Gulf of Tonkin events, and I called the newspaper and eventually reached the man who had been the chief diplomatic correspondent for the paper at the time, Murrey Marder, and I said, “Mr. Marder, has there ever been a retraction by the Washington Post of its fallacious reporting on the Gulf of Tonkin?” And he said, “I can assure you it never happened. There was never any retraction.” And I asked why. And he said, “Well, if the news media were going to retract its reporting on the Gulf of Tonkin, it would have to retract its reporting on virtually the entire Vietnam War.

Fast forward a few decades, you have President George W. Bush saying that to an absolute certainty there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and that intelligence sources told him that clearly, which was not at all the case.
www.mediaed.org...



In that quote the key term (aside from Dubya's WMD's) was "Gulf of Tonkin". You see what 'started' the Vietnam War was staged sea battle where supposedly the Vietcong attacked US Navy ships. That made them the aggressor, and then we had to go in there and "defend ourselves", and from there multiple developing nations were bombed to smithereens and poisoned with Agent Orange. The problem with that whole tale is the part where the Vietcong never attacked the US Navy, instead the US Navy essentially attacked itself to justify the pre-existing agenda there. This is a well known fact, and that move was a classical example of what is known as a False Flag Attack.

The people don't want war, but they can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country. -Hermann Göring


Not all war action pretexts are false flags of course. Another popular pretext technique is the age old "Atrocity Propaganda" maneuver, which the spreading of deliberate fabrications or exaggerations about the crimes committed by an enemy, constituting a form of psychological warfare. Note that such psychological warfare operations (PSYOP) are enacted upon such a governments own population. You see wars begin in the mind, so when a government sets about staging an otherwise unjustifiable war then the first battlefield to be conquered is in the minds of its own people. And towards such ends sometimes it just takes the craftiness of a good old fashioned PR firm -like the ones that work behind the scenes in crafting your weekly television experience- to drive home a war to the American people.

Take the case of the "dead incubator babies" during the Persian Gulf War (aka the "Nayirah Testimony"):

The Nayirah testimony was a false testimony given before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990 by a 15-year-old girl who provided only her first name, Nayirah. The testimony was widely publicized, and was cited numerous times by United States senators and President George H.W. Bush in their rationale to back Kuwait in the Gulf War. In 1992, it was revealed that Nayirah's last name was al-Ṣabaḥ (Arabic: نيره الصباح‎‎) and that she was the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Furthermore, it was revealed that her testimony was organized as part of the Citizens for a Free Kuwait public relations campaign which was run by American Hill & Knowlton for the Kuwaiti government. Following this, al-Sabah's testimony has come to be regarded as a classic example of modern atrocity propaganda.

For an all out expose on manipulative war pretext PSYOP's there's no better than the hard hitting documentary, "War Made Easy - How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us To Death ", written by Norman Soloman. A broader scope of DOD domestic propaganda operations can be found over at the Pentagon Propaganda Campaigns section of "History Commons" (also see Domestic Propaganda and the News Media the main portal page to really have your mind blown). Their Media Coverage of Iraq War (270) category is very important but too long to dig much into in here, yet at the end of this chapter is a quick bullet point list of their Pentagon timeline entries. It's mainly from the "Pentagon Propaganda Campaigns" category, and I also highly recommend their "Military Analysts in the Media (92)" category.


Do note that not all war driving domestic PSYOP's involve pretexts. Those are only the beginning. Take the case of Jessica Lynch, where they all but manufactured this heroic tale of the young little American hottie battling her way through a hail of bullets & blades in an ambush, where only the mite of US Special Forces could save her. Okay, so she did go down in an attack, but the whole story was a gross exaggeration that played on the heart-strings of the nation. In the end, in the process of being the victim of a bogus war, she this heroine was also a victim of the Pentagon PSYOP machine if you look into how this affected her life. She never even knew about the national coverage of the embellished propaganda story, because she was coupled up in a secluded hospital bed for months without any TV or other exposure to the outside world. Score three for the team on that occasion (and score minus two for her livelihood) as the Pentagon got a nice big hot diversion, their effort got added public support, all the while the MSM got their ratings red hot ratings bucks. As to be expected, the MSM were quick to eat up and spout out the government's Official Version of the event, was slow to catch on, and rabidly resisted the truth coming out even as the lie was becoming all too obvious.


Who could forget the Iraq War and the media's role in pushing the Bush Administration's and the Pentagon's hardcore propaganda to sell US on going in, and placating US once there. The fact is, the MSM are just as complicit in the selling of essentially every war, at least during my lifetime. Sure they might go on later to pretend to speak truth to power, but always well after the damage is done, the bodies have piled up, out nation is caught the the quagmire, all while always propping up the same "Two" Party System that keeps on delivering US into the mouth of madness (which we will cover in-depth in Part 2 of this volume). The MSM has this ever bearing amnesia in these regards as the party system itself never gets called into question at all before, during or after such conflicts going into meltdown from one administration to the next.

If anything they've gotten even worse about it, as Bush eventually did the get skewer for the Iraq War which under the right light at least there was all kinds of backstory of unfinished business as part of the pretext. In the case of Syria there was no such thing, aside from a few decades of not liking them. So Obama and Hillary cause a civil war there, by now the body count and destruction is every bit as brutal as how Bush left Iraq, and yet they're still silent on holding Obama and Hillary's cajones to the fire at all really. Instead them blame Russia, whom has been Syria's ally since the 70's! And now what's this, anyone trying to discuss this gets labeled a state sponsored Russian propagandist whom needs to be blacklisted in social media and smeared in the MSM, all a page right out of the book of McCarthyism from the Cold War.


Something straight out of the Twilight Zone happened in recent years, since Osama Bin laden was killed I guess. What's insane is Al Qaeda became America's ally in it's fight against ISIS... although that isn't even the punchline. The punchline is that nobody even seems to care. Not hardly the Republican's, and certainly not the Democrat's. This goes for the party's, the MSM, the White House, the Pentagon and even regular folks. As it was Al Qaeda that "ObamaMcCainHillaryGrahamCo." worked with the CIA to send into Syria to try and topple the government there, after all. Of course the MSM followed their narrative of the whole affair, early on, before anyone much had a chance to know any better. Yet what really drove our society into madness was how even after the puzzle pieces to truly grasp the situation were all out in the open, the MSM continued towing the lines with this blame Russia for what we started kick. The virtue signalling movement took over from here, where instead of rounding up the war criminals responsible, all that mattered was we needed to massively import the refugees from the crisis. Never mind maybe turn our backs on Al Qaeda & ISIS and help restore stability. Nope! We needed to send more funding to the terrorists causing the ordeal because that was the 'humane' thing to do.

The Race to Nowhere
We're finally about to 2016 in our narrative now, this point from which will be the main subject of "FEATURE 2", so its wrap up time. As we've seen, propaganda & censorship from our leaders and media has been pervasive & ubiquitous for so long that our people simply haven't been given the tools to see the full picture of reality. The best window into this realm revolves around "our" military interventionism (aka American Imperialism). Special interests are so deeply embedded into the system that in effect is a system of power that rules over our party's, the government, the military and the media. Their Politics of Fear agenda has been so effectively entrenched that our society has long been the Culture of Fear (as well as increasingly divided). It's important to note that this kind of stuff was supposed to have been banned by Congress, under the Smith-Mundt Act, back in 1948, and yet this is all what has played out none the less. With this history as a guide, now imagine it in a near future where it's been 'legalized'... Now empowered by the Internet, we've been wising up to their games ever since, but in response the propaganda and social engineering has become increasingly bare knuckle. Today they're bombarding us with vague notions of perspectives outside of theirs as being "fake news", primarily centered around the very perspectives they've kept from us our entire lives. They're now enacting measures against this "fake news" "threat" in the form of a 'Ministry of Propaganda' in response, that includes mass automatic censorship of of the Internet including our social media platforms. The time is now to grasp all of this reality, and what they're trying to do because the stakes are too high and these odds they're putting up against us are increasingly insurmountable.

If you don't mention the likes of Infowars here, it becomes pretty clear what your agenda is.

I mean it took you nearly two pages of crap before actually starting the thread!

So in summary, the government is bad, you're a scared little guy who's scared of the scary government because they might brainwash you. And fake news only comes from the government.

What a bloated, self gratifying, egotistical thread.

So that's all I could take doing on this part. I need this project behind me. Cramming that much history / reality / perspective into one piece is a serious burden. It grows ever more painstaking to proof read, and especially edit additional things into a streaming narrative like that without throwing it all out of whack. So many directions it could have went, and so many details and angles each could have entailed, ya just gotta start tossing all kinds of stuff 'onto the cutting room floor'.

The "Fake News Invasion" graphic I found somewhere along the way, which helped me wrap this whole concept around cinematic themes. Studying film / cinema has been much of my side project all those years I wasn't doing "IIB work", so thought I'd have fun merging that background into this. I've done tons of other 'original" art for this 2 part ordeal, most of which is being deployed in the next "Feature". I think after I'll post a thread in the Art forum with all of my art and memes and you'll be able to tell what was mine and what I had found around the Interwebs.

There's so much to do on the second feature, but I've slugged on through the hard parts of figuring out how it's all going together. There's TOO much content that could be covered. My condensed "scratchpad" fie I was supposed work directly from as I go is already about 100,000 characters (this piece was 69,630 characters), but I'm basically writing it all 'freehand' now, opposed to running it direct while scratching off the entries from it as I go as I did with this one (much of it just isn't going to be used). My thinking now of how to present it has changed over the past month, so the scratchpad file I'll probably post in raw form as a separate Appendix. Otherwise the total piece would be ridiculously long. Like making 'films' as I've learn, pieces like this you might be surprised that too much content and keeping it trim becomes the bigger problem where you might think that coming up with enough content to make such a beast would be the challenge.

There's just so much involved in understanding what our Media, our Government, etc are that there's just no quick and easy way to put the full scope of these creatures into view. Period.

a reply to: Chadwickus

Still disrespectfully butthurt from last night I see. Here I wanted to do something new, a new kind of presentation. I effectively wrote a film, but since working on films once again hasn't been an option I've been blurring the lines between article & documentary with so many of these huge pieces I've been cranking out the past year. Here I decided to embrace it. Perhaps if you'd actually read the entire thing. Then again, you're in Australia and you're rude so who cares what you think on such a specific history anyways. Disrespecting the creative works of others, is that part of being a liberal now too? Ironic, as this piece didn't even make things about left/right partisan crap.

Egads, Brain! Lots to read, some I knew and some I didn't, like the Bush foreign policy Iran-Contra thing. Interesting stuff.

Before I dig in I just wanted to say as a frequent viewer of Dr. Strangelove that's one awesome picture. If you made that, well done.
