pentagons "SECRET" campaign? c'mon, these people in the media aren't stupid, they have just been granted permission to talk about it, that's all. and where does it say that the media is suppose to keep us informed? they do their job to make money!!! they will damn well tell us what they want us to hear in their own good time. as machavelli said and i paraphrase "give the people bread and circuses"

Thank you for the article DD, isn't it incredible how obvious all of this is becoming. There is no more room left under the rug. If all of those stations are under the thumb then the situation is worse than I imagined. I am keen to help in any way if you guys need an info warrior in New Zealand. The word needs to get out, the sheeple must be made aware of the wolf in sheeps clothing.

What do you think would an effective 'first step' to inducing greater awareness?
I like Metaldemon's idea, any other opinions? peace

Its justyou always bring this up,but I find it hard to believe if it is true(which it might be)if you are going to DO ANYTHING BESIDES POST ONLINE.

Will you fight?


What would you really do if tomarrow the gov. and the "NWO"took over?

A very hard lesson for good people to learn is that some people do not want help. They WANT to wallow in ignorance and apathy. I am long past the point of caring for those people, as it does no good. They didn't want to hear the truth, so let them deal with reality when it smacks them in the face.

When the cities are emptied of food, and people have turned to cannabilism, they'll find out everything they've been told is a lie. Let them have their bread and circuses.

Ahhh, another great write up detailing the ILLEGALITY of what these criminals were doing. It is HIGHLY ILLEGAL by the very laws that are set out in our gov, yet they pissed all over these laws to do this!

Gee...Big Suprise.

Pentagon Pundit Scandal BROKE THE LAW

The Pentagon military analyst program unveiled in last week’s exposé by David Barstow in the New York Times was not just unethical but illegal. It violates, for starters, specific restrictions that Congress has been placing in its annual appropriation bills every year since 1951. According to those restrictions, “No part of any appropriation contained in this or any other Act shall be used for publicity or propaganda purposes within the United States not heretofore authorized by the Congress.”

As explained in a March 21, 2005 report by the Congressional Research Service, “publicity or propaganda” is defined by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) to mean either (1) self-aggrandizement by public officials, (2) purely partisan activity, or (3) “covert propaganda.” By covert propaganda, GAO means information which originates from the government but is unattributed and made to appear as though it came from a third party.

DD, I suspect that 'Congress' will declare they DID approve the funds for this use. They probably just couched it as a "public information" exercise with the funds funneled through the DHS and DoD. There is no limit to the subterfuge which the 'indoctrinated' will engage in to assure their agenda is met. Granted it's speculation, but if I can't say it here, where can I?

If these people are willing to engage in the outright destruction of the Constitutional controls in place, this PR snafu is a triviality that they won't lose any sleep over. In fact, it seems like the Media is already all set up to take the heat for all of this, which would explain why the FCC is falling all over itself to endorse the commercial consolidation of media control.

All these stories about media censorship is really worrying, much more so than any other issue at the moment IMO. I mean the economy is a problem but ultimately I think almost everyone can agree that it will recover eventually, the middle east might blow up or it might not, oil is expensive but we'll get over it... but the media is our window to ALL of these issues, without a (mostly) honest media there could be 100 things we don't know about that are far worse than all our current concerns combined.

I think people really under estimate the problems a government controlled media will bring all of us and we really need to be a lot more outraged. The whole PBS incident really pissed me off, like more than I've been PO'd in a long time and its not like I didn't think this was going on it just hits even harder when you find out for a fact your suspicions were correct.

It's like now with 9/11, most of us know deep down the govt is behind it, I mean its boarder line fact as it is. BUT the day the govt comes out and says flat out; "We flew two planes into the twin towers and murdered thousands of Americans so we could satisfy our own greed and ambitions over seas regardless of cost to human life." I think people will just come unglued with rage, even though we're so sure now, that extra 0.01% assuredness kicks it up 100x.

And unlike most current issues, this could go on indefinitely and its only going to get worse. Face it, we have absolutely no idea what our governments are up to and not a clue what's really going on in the world.

What do we do about this? The information war has really started to heat up and the importance of this issue can't be understated!

We can't fight an enemy who's existence we're unaware of!

I suspect you are just beginning to enjoy the broader view. Perhaps enjoy is a bad word.

You are right about the perspective though. Eventually all of our woes are doomed to pass because they are essentially of our own making. And we really only have two possible ways of settling our differences with our environment either adapt or die. Although I am usually more pessimistic - I don't think we're going anywhere.

Media is difficult to contend with. "We're in a lot of trouble here..." is a very appropriate understatement. The beginning is a simple warning to everyone you know who will respect your sincerity. Tell them. If it's corporately owned, you can't accept anything they broadcast without looking deeper, because there is NO doubt, they CANNOT be trusted to tell the truth. That's just the way it is..., for now.

So, anything ever happen with this story?

Were there Congressional investigations?

Are these 'commentators' still playing the uninterested-observer on Fox, CNN, etc?

Did anyone other than PBS ever investigate this further?

(sorry, I'm feeling cynical)

Edit: grr, stupid broken size tags...

i wonder if the media coverup of 9-11 will be broken too?...i guess peoples consciences are starting to kick in...

I have a simple solution that can be easily enacted, understood and spread.

1) Write in Ron Paul for president in the coming election. (We all know we're no better with Obama, or McCain

2) Become Libertarian

3) Promote the Libertarian ideal...the rule of law and the RESTORATION of the Constitution.

4) Support your local state and community government officials that are Libertarians. This is perhaps the easiest way to attack the "NWO" monster. You see we as a freedom loving people have almost no chance to attack the monster from head on. And why would we? There is no way to organize a coup on such a massive scale. "They" hold all the cards. BUT, if you organize on a local level, and support Libertarian candidates running for office, you will find that support at the local level is easy to coordinate and due to the demographics of local elections, you will find that your efforts go much farther.

We can destroy this "NWO" monster not by chopping off the head, but by infesting its system from the inside out...something that it has no way of defending itself against.

I was a Pentagon Ad man......
no not me but a book title in the future.
How do they pad the budget with this hooie.
How many times do we have to get wars for these guys.
Goldwater was the potential big spender for the war machine
so LBJ invented the Gulf of Tonkin and more war.
The war lobby is too great and its a normal way of life for America.
When not at wart we get Democrats like Clinton to fix the war debt
of the Republicans by reducing the benefits of the masses.
No universal health care, that I heard again in a last breath effort
from Hillery against Obama, but a universal takeaway.
McCain will win cause we need war or else the corporations made
enough and the Democrats will pay off debt as universal as the
last time. Better to keep on waring than get the Clinton sucker
program again.

John F. Kennedy was assasinated because he did not agree with the New World Order plans for a Global One World Government run by the United Nations and a few. Since the early part of the centry the presidents of our country have been calling for the NWO as well as those of the UK and Erurope. President Bush I and II are both installers of a high degree to this ideology. They called for it in the 1991 speech and in the 2001 speech. They carefully have selected the events and the schematics for thrusting the USA into the world wide web of the NWO. It is about peace,(at the expense of freedom), money and food and oil(to keep us a socialist society), world wide healthcare, education, banking and economy, religion and government. They are attempting to mainstream minds and souls into one stream of THEIR CONSCIOUSNESS. IF we love our selves, our children, our God, our freedom, our nationalism, our flag, our history, our futures...we will resist their attempts...just like the pentagon was not really hit by a plane...the yard was not burned...their was no plane wreckage and the wings span was larger for that sized plane than the hole in the building...come on people...I voted both Bushes in, I am a Republican and my father is ex-military in three branches and worked for the govt. I have no reason to see what I see and feel what I feel except that I finally get it and am actually looking for the truths. Knowledge can only be found when it is your own research and don't take anyone's word for your own digging around and reading. Read up on your history, geography, Bible scriptures, news, world events, ancient writings, UN documents online, the presidential speeches in text and the ones you can download and then come back to this forum and educate each other with the websites, the verses, the facts, the dates and the footnotes, refferences etc...getting on here and just speculating like geeky teens in tenth grade won't help each other..not trying to be disrespectful, just trying to help you. You all seem like you have the potential to really combine minds...after you do...become proactive and start educating every one around you to what is really happening. We are the People of the Constitution! Don't let them take that away.
