It has information warfare in the title a recent thread with infographics on tactics used PSYOPS on the other hand has an objective which use these techniques and if you know what they look like will be able to recognize them a little
Here's the actual section of the amendment:

“(b) Rule of construction.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit the Department of State or the Broadcasting Board of Governors from engaging in any medium or form of communication, either directly or indirectly, because a United States domestic audience is or may be thereby exposed to program material, or based on a presumption of such exposure. Such material may be made available within the United States and disseminated, when appropriate, pursuant to sections 502 and 1005 of the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (22 U.S.C. 1462 and 1437), except that nothing in this section may be construed to authorize the Department of State or the Broadcasting Board of Governors to disseminate within the United States any program material prepared for dissemination abroad on or before the effective date of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012.
Scary!!!!

Every documentary you see on TV (or in the theater, if you're that kind of person) is propaganda. If you're getting more than Who, What, Where, and When -- with only a little bit of Why once in a while -- it's trying to influence you.

Coincidentally today, I watched an episode of Hitlers henchmen featuring Dr Goebles and the propogander tecniques employed during the 30s it was like watching a training seminar for today's ruling executive. Especially when I saw how the msm were so hypnotised by it they began to even predict the party line before any announcements were made.

What was intreaguing was the journalists disbelief at their own articles when reread after the war and how much they had fallen in step with the whole mass hatred phenomenon that had been generated.

It's the playbook for modern government.

Now, couple this with the censorship of conservative voices and you have people saying what some members on this forums say.

"Evil conservatives allow children to be killed!"* And so on.

*Which is always funny coming from pro late-term abortionists.

I keep a link in my sig that discusses just that. Feel free to explore that thread, and the wording involved. I am particularly fond of this one from 2017, also signed in by Obama.


“Identifying current and emerging trends in… information obtained from print, broadcast, online and social media, support for third-party outlets such as think tanks, political parties, and nongovernmental organizations… and the use of covert or clandestine special operators and agents to influence targeted populations and governments…”
— §1259C, b4

Actually, the propaganda put forth by US media has always been legal. It is commonly referred to as freedom of the press.

The NDAA (the 2017 Defense budget), which was passed by a very Republican Congress (the same one we have now), did include provisions to take actions to strenghten our ability to act against foreign propaganda efforts in the US.

Is that what you're referring to? Or have you fallen victim to fake news? Actual fake news, about those provisions.




U.S. lawmakers are finally getting serious about disinformation from nation states as a national security concern. The 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, directs the State Department’s Global Engagement Center, working with the Defense Department and other agencies to “counter foreign propaganda and disinformation directed against United States national security interests and proactively advance fact-based narratives that support United States allies and interests.”

Interesting use of elipses there. Here is the complete clause:


(4) Identifying current and emerging trends in foreign propaganda and disinformation based on the information provided by the appropriate interagency entities with responsibility for such information, including information obtained from print, broadcast, online and social media, support for third-party outlets such as think tanks, political parties, and nongovernmental organizations, and the use of covert or clandestine special operators and agents to influence targeted populations and governments in order to coordinate and shape the development of tactics, techniques, and procedures to expose and refute foreign misinformation and disinformation and proactively promote fact-based narratives and policies to audiences outside the United States.

The current Congress seems to think the GEC (which was created by the Act) is a pretty good idea:


Public diplomacy programs are among the overseas programs funded through D&CP, which include the Global Engagement Center’s (GEC’s) countering state disinformation (CSD) program. According to the State Department, planned CSD activities, for which $20 million is requested, include “coordinating U.S. government efforts in specific sub-regions; enhancing the capacity of local actors to build resilience against disinformation, including thwarting attacks on their IT systems; providing attribution of adversarial disinformation; and convening anti-disinformation practitioners, journalists, and other influencers to exchange best practices, build networks, and generate support for U.S. efforts against disinformation.” The House committee report registers concern regarding “foreign propaganda and disinformation that threatens United States national security, especially as carried out by China, Russia, and extremists groups” and asserts that the GEC “is expected to use a wide range of technologies and techniques to counter these campaigns,” consistent with its statutory mandate. The Senate committee report recommends up to $75.4 million for the GEC, including up to $40 million for countering foreign state propaganda and disinformation.

So does Mike Pompeo, apparently:

American values like respect for human rights and the rule of law . The people of the world must know not only the policies, but also the principles for which the United States stands. Even as our public diplomacy budget calls for greater burden sharing of long standing programs , the $55.4 million requested for the Global Engagement Center covers both its original counter extremist mission , plus an increase of $20 million to counter state sponsored disinformation campaigns. We will not tolerate Russian interference in the 2018 elections , and we must take countermeasures in response to an effort to do so .
