I was initially going to add this into one of the threads discussing the polls in the media supposedly showing that we're all fine with the NSA
snooping on everyone. But after just a little digging I came to the conclusion that this deserves its own thread.
Obviously the polls provided are factually incorrect, we can see this from a cursory look at the response across the web from millions of people. You
can go to any site where discussion is taking place and you will find that somewhere between 70 - 80% of the response is without question anti-NSA,
anti-Obama and anti-US Gov.
I think we all know that the "polls" are BS.
But it concerned me that the ones responsible for these polls are trusted throughout the media world and quoted all the time. They are supposedly
I think it might be time to look into the Pew and see just how reliable and trustworthy it is as a "charitable organization"...
All of these polls seem to have been conducted by "Pew Research Center", and this purports to be a "nonpartisan fact tank" as seen at the bottom
of this page -
If you then click through to the "Pew Charitable Trusts
" site, and check out some of those involved in the work
they do, you not only find that they operate a Venture Fund, but many of their people are interesting and have some very curious connections.
I only checked out a few, because there are so many fingers in so many pies there by the looks of things, but on my travels I found this page giving
reviews of Pew as an employer.
It should be known that this is a massive "company" (claiming to be a charity of some kind) all around the world, and they hire and seemingly fire a
hell of a lot of people, and a lot of people who still work there are very disillusioned...
Pew Charitabl Trust Reviews
Here are some of the most interesting things the people who work there (or did work there) have to say...
The biggest problem is that managers do not trust their staff to do their job and as a result micromanage everything, and every little document that
gets churned out, even an internal document only meant for you and your teammates working on a project or campaign together is subjected to several
layers of review.
Pew hires all kinds of experts supposedly for their counsel and their suggestions, but that is not what happens. You do what you are told, and you
think what you are told to think.
So, in other words, their independent experts are nothing more than names, to boost credibility by association.
That was from just one person, there are others backing up this view too...
There's not even an opportunity to right a two-sentence email without five or more people editing it before it goes out....And this applies no matter
how high up you are. If you come here, you will soon feel what everyone here feels: a burning desire to leave and fear or concern that you cannot
Another person claiming that all emails are checked by others, that all work is scrutinized and monitored, and even that they fear they cannot
They all seem to have some issues with the nature of senior staff, and particularly Rebecca Rimel too.
Rebecca Rimel pops up in some other places also, most notably in the story of the Barnes Foundation of Philadelphia where a school was basically
robbed of the art collection created by the schools founder -
The Art of the Steal (film)
Critic's Notebook: 'The Art of the Steal: The Untold Story of the Barnes
the film “The Art of the Steal: the Untold Story of the Barnes Foundation” shows that Pew Charitable Trusts Foundation President Rebecca Rimel
gave false testimony in a court hearing.
But it gets even better than that!
According to the site "ForeignPolicy.com", which is a division of the Washington Post, Rebecca Rimel is on the list of the 500 most powerful people
in the world!
500 Most Powerful People in the World
Yeah, you heard me, the head of this "unbiased" polling "fact tank" is one of the 500 most powerful people on the planet. She beats some
interesting people too, including Supreme Court chief justice John Roberts and Carlisle Group CEO David Rubenstein.
I'm not kidding when I say that she is listed as more powerful than heads of state.
And perhaps the most revealing piece of all is this...

Am I the only one thinking that this woman is an asset of some kind? Your thoughts, and possibly further research into Pew and this woman would be
I think we might have stumbled onto one of the biggest tools of propaganda and it would be great if we could collectively expose it - considering Pew
is cited around the world as an unbiased source.
