"Psychological warfare employs age-old ideas in twentieth century dress"

D. Lincoln Harter, Propaganda Handbook, 1953




Looks like the term 'psy-ops' is establishing itself more and more in the public consciousness (just like 'false flag' did a few years ago) and when it comes to 'perception management' and influence operations performed by 'behaviour change specialists' then there are some relevant links below exploring just what the dickens is going on.



• Definition and document archive:



Psychological Operations






Psychological Operations (PSYOP, PSYOPS) are techniques used by military and police forces to influence a target audience’s value systems, belief systems, emotions, motives, reasoning, and behavior.

Target audiences can be governments, organizations, groups, and individuals, and are used in order to induce confessions, or reinforce attitudes and behaviors favorable to the originator’s objectives.

These are sometimes combined with black operations or false flag tactics



Government Document Archive





• Perception Management:


A good, clinical definition below including the nine strategies of 'perception management' (AKA how to brainwash the public).




Perception management includes all actions used to influence the attitudes and objective reasoning of foreign audiences and consists of Public Diplomacy, Psychological Operations (PSYOPS), Public Information, Deception and Covert Action.






There are nine strategies for perception management. These include:


1. Preparation — Having clear goals and knowing the ideal position you want people to hold.


2. Credibility — Make sure all of your information is consistent, often using prejudices or expectations to increase credibility.


3. Multichannel support — Have multiple arguments and fabricated facts to reinforce your information.


4. Centralized control — Employing entities such as propaganda ministries or bureaus.


5. Security — The nature of the deception campaign is known by few.


6. Flexibility — The deception campaign adapts and changes over time as needs change.


7. Coordination — The organization or propaganda ministry is organized in a hierarchical pattern in order to maintain consistent and synchronized distribution of information.


8. Concealment — Contradicting information is destroyed.


9. Untruthful statements — Fabricate the truth.



Online Psyops and Perception Management





Also quite a relevant example below taken from March, 1962 where the Joint Chiefs of Staff discuss how to manipulate the 'public mind' by the use of false flag terrorism.






The Joint Chiefs expressly proposed arranging, planning, and executing terrorist attacks in Miami and Washington D.C.

These proposed terrorist events would be blamed on Cuba, and were hoped to, if carried out, cause a wave of indignation across the American public mind and provide the popular support for invading Cuba militarily.

Truly amazing how much research has now disappeared from the internet but there's another very relevant article below and the remaining links are well worth a watch (and a save).

Also turns out there was a psy-ops unit based at CNN.




Psyops 101: A brief history of fake news





.Since that time, fake news broadcasts have been aired on otherwise “mainstream” networks from time to time, often with little or no notice that the “news” story being aired is completely fictitious.

Sometimes the fake news is deliberately seeded into the public consciousness by way of a carefully coordinated public relations campaign.

Other times the fake news consists of staged or manipulated interviews, designed to give a false impression that the on-the-ground reality is different than it really is.

Yet another method of implanting fake news is to merely make large-scale accusations that can later be exposed as being completely baseless. The widespread coverage of the original allegation and the almost non-existent coverage of the retraction is enough to assure the effectiveness of this particular psyop tactic.

All of these methods of psychological warfare, however, are only as effective as they are believable. To a jaded public, or even just one that has learned not to trust the news from a given source that is known to have a bias for or against given entities, the effectiveness of such propaganda is severely limited. This is where a new and altogether more insidious form of misinformation comes into play, however: the video news release.

The VNR, or video news release is a short video production that is made to look like a news report. Often employing actors or PR specialists to represent the “reporter” and even the interviewees, the VNR has been used as a way for companies to work their products and services into the nightly news in the guise of a “news” broadcast.

More disturbing by far than the widespread use of this PR trick by companies like Microsoft and Phillip Morris is the use of VNRs by the federal government.

Some will dismiss the fears about VNRs out of hand. After all, they will argue, psychological warfare is by definition something that is used against one’s enemies, not one’s own people.

Good morning Karl. As usual you bring a grand topic for discussion to the boards. However this time I am replying before even getting into the meat of your presentation. Why? I'll tell you why. Because I need to ask you, ask you as a friend mind you, just who do you think you are tossing out a line like '' what the dickens is going on. '' From what dark recesses of your collection of antiquated cliches have you pulled that one. What trap door to the dungeons of hackneyed and trite dust covered phrases did you find this one behind.

Where were we? Oh, yeah, psyops bad. Drift protection and all. Now I think I'll twenty three skidoo off and plow into the rest of the OP.

Ah yes what the dickens Terry?


Happy reading and also thought there was an interesting vid here exploring the saturation of 'intel operatives' within the corporate media framework.

Suppose the article below is also worth a post as the more people that know about it the better.




On July 2, 2013 American citizens became unknowing victims of government propaganda being paid for by their own tax dollars and most don’t even know it.

Is the Government Conducting Psychological Operations on United States Citizens?




Don't know if you're interested in the subject but it also turns out Susan Gough (sole 'public relations' spokesperson for Pentagon UFO/UAP enquiries) also has a rather dodgy background in 'strategically influencing' the public.




Gough’s background prior to commenting on UAPs for the Pentagon has not made her popular to many online UFO “‘D’isclosure” advocates. In 2003, she authored a Strategy Research Project where she wrote that the  “orchestrated combination” of public diplomacy, psychological operations (PsyOps), and public affairs is the definition of what is called “strategic influence.

Yes, yes and of course yes. I particularly liked the article on ''Paradigm Shifting Operations'', those major existential events that can either be used OR orchestrated from the beginning to alter the general public's perception of reality in a relatively short time, like months or a year as opposed to long term manipulation going on over decades.

As well, the brief discussion on Smith-Mundt Act and it's modification in 2013 allowing legal dispersal of of propaganda on the American public. That one had escaped my notice, the ''legal'' part anyway, so thanks for that.

I think what it comes down to is just how gullible people are. Not the ''who'' of who is pulling the strings but rather who is being pulled. I make the argument that certainly the government employs these techniques but at the same time these techniques are not new and have been used for centuries through religions and all forms of human coordinated thinking.
Though it may be trite, we can use an example of ''The Prince'' which was on first blush, a handbook for how to govern properly while in the deeper sense was really a treatise on how to manipulate the masses.

My point here is that it is one thing to understand that and how our government manipulates us but more importantly is an understanding of how manipulable we as individuals are. In realizing this I think the most important threshold to reach is not how manipulable others are, that's the easy part, but rather just how manipulable we ourselves are.

''strategic influence''.

That's a good one. Easy to focus on as a tactic. Once we lock ourselves into a term like that as a means to understand what is being perpetrated on us they will surely change their phrasing to something more innocuous and non-threatening.

Something most evil of the Soviet Union was Psychopolitics. It was used, by the thought police, to relegate anybody as mentally ill that would even think against the party lines. The goal was to use techniques to tell the dissenter they're insane, tell everybody in the dissenter's circle they're insane, use these techniques to completely marginalize an unapproved thinker in society, hopefully even get them to question their own sanity, by pounding away at them so. It was considered science and a tool to use against anybody showing individuality.

We are seeing this in Democrats, trying to float the narrative anybody that likes Trump or supports conservative ideas, that conflict with perverse liberalism, are the thoughts of terrorists, that need to be cancelled. In the Soviet Union, it was Godless Bolshevik perverts, doing Psychopolitics. In the USA, it's Democrats, doing their Marxist predecessors proud. These radicals are fully aware of Psychopolitics. It's no accident they're trying to paint Christians and conservatives, merely Trump supporters, as terrorists, this despite the fact that it's radical liberals doing the likes of burning cities. Hitler did similar to Jews and other groups, before he began to purge. Striking, just last week, was Fakebook's call to report people not onboard with all this nonsense going on, again referring to the government that is calling Trump supporters terrorists, that cancelled Trump, to report on people they know that may be expressing dangerous thought, as if they're Hitler Youth. It's despicable.

Anywhere you have control freaks, the pigs of Animal Farm that think they're more equal and try to write their own laws, you have the devil at work, enemies of the people. Manipulation is not honorable. It is deception, and called guile, the stuff of con artists and other narcissistic riffraff, that sorely need slapped upside the head, not fans. The fusing of the state and corporations, making them arms of the state to execute the state's totalitarian agenda, is literally Fascism. In Washington is the vision of a Fascist States of America, that wants to cancel all opposition.

Yes numerous governmental groups (like NSA, CIA, DIA etc.) being directly implicated mate but am sure non state actors (like CFR, TC, WEF etc.) also play a huge role in the propagandization of the public.

Another good example showing how 'for sale' the corporate media actually is would be Bill Gates.

Apparently a CJR study in June last year found that Gates had 'financially motivated' (bribed) numerous corporate media agencies including the BBC, NBC, Al Jazeera, ProPublica, National Journal, The Guardian, Univision, Medium, The Financial Times, The Atlantic etc. to the tune of over 250 million dollars.

Supposed 'factchecking' platforms (Politifact, USA Today, New Humaniterian etc.) are also on the Gates Foundation payroll.. so probably not very impartial.

Ther's also this thread from a while back involving a court ruling which made it perfectly legal for news channels to lie to the public.. so I don't think anyone should be taking them too seriously.

Yes mate lots of lovely propaganda terminology floating around these days and along with 'public relations' it now looks like the term 'cognitive infiltration' is the new catch all phrase for 'active propaganda'.

When it comes to distortion, deflection, suppression or just plain BS then also thought this vid made some good refresher points about the 'psychological building blocks of deception' and the manipulative techniques employed.

Would have to agree we are heading in that direction mate - especially when one factors in the utter psychopathy of 'corporations'.

Below is a classic piece of propaganda that I actually remember being aired on the news - some truly disturbing content.. but turns out it was all fabricated by 'public relations' firm Hill and Knowltown:






Nurse Nayirah" in the media, was a fifteen-year-old Kuwaiti girl, who alleged that she had witnessed the murder of infant children by Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait, in verbal testimony to the U.S. Congress, in the run up to the 1991 Gulf War.




Reality:



In 1991, the world was introduced to the emotional story of Nayirah, a Kuwaiti girl who testified about the atrocities committed by Iraqi forces in Kuwait.

What the world was never told was that the incident had in fact been the work of a
public relations firm, Hill and Knowltown, and the girl had actually been the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador.

Also had to laugh at this staged fake news conference - almost as if they don't care anymore.

Also some very interesting claims below from well respected German news editor Udo Ulfkotte (author of 'Journalists For Hire' concerning NCOs (Non-official cover) which occurs 'when a journalist is essentially working for the CIA'.






"I was bribed by billionaires, I was bribed by the Americans to report…not exactly the truth.”

– Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of one of Germany’s main daily publications, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Some readers will see this and immediately dismiss it as Russian propaganda since the interview appeared on RT. This would be a serious mistake.

Whether you want to admit it or not, CIA control of the media in the U.S. and abroad is not conspiracy theory, it is conspiracy fact.

Another excellent thread! This topic runs so deep it's absolutely mind boggling. One really has to go way back in history to make sense of it on how we got where we are today. Here in the USA without trawling too far back I guess start in 1947, but you might end up in the looney bin once you reach post 9/11 era.

That "On Paradigm Shifting Operations" is one helluva read! Really sheds light on what has been taking place all over the world.

Those observing the current Orwellian climate in the United States no longer gasp at each new move by "progressives" to control society’s collective mind, but some take occasional breaks from tearing their hair out to laugh at the more egregious examples.

We are being blitzkrieg'd by the likes of Edward Bernays propaganda on 5th Gen rocket steroids that keeps our state of perception in constant state of mass confusion, right down to our sub-conscious, altering how we think. So many psy-ops running in parallel I think IT has taken on a life of it's own; perhaps being run by a superior AI entity. Politician lies & rhetoric, msm hyenas, advertisements (big pharma in America), movies, tv shows, music, radio, Vatican, cults, youth organizations, to CIA fronts, and on and on. 24/7 firehose of mass propaganda deception which recently (the past 4 years) has been outright ridiculous BS lies that so many buy into. (Note my Vlad quote in sig.) If this goes on much longer I fear the movie Idiocracy may become a twisted version of our new reality and the blood-sucking ruling-class leeches will marvel in their new creation from atop their ivory towers.


^^ Though, it won't be the political puppets, but the new pillage & plunder Technocratic-Transhuman 'Corporate' establishment.

Amazing how many have forgotten and/or don't even know nor ever heard about "Operation Northwoods." I'm sure many here have watched Seven Days in May (1964). I keep thinking that NOTHING being perpetrated on the citizens today is anything but new. The only new thing about it all is the twisted, morphing of the old magician tricks with advanced digital age tech enslaving everyone, and most are not even aware. What happens when AI becomes aware...aware being a loose term but I think you feel my point.

"...research has now disappeared from the internet..." - Indeed and how much has disappeared (hidden) by the Goog algorithms based on keywords used.

We come full circle with Sentient World Simulation (SWS), a programme that pools all the intelligence collected about you. SWS uses that information to simulate and predict how you would behave under certain social conditions, such as civil unrest, economic shocks or environmental catastrophe.



But it goes much deeper. The SWS was developed with military money at Purdue University. It creates a digital mirror-image of the real world, including you and me: our streets, towns and even the weather. In order to anticipate how we would react in real life, programmers do things to the digital us: cut our power supplies, simulate weather disasters, crash the economy, etc. This is useful for counterinsurgency planning and market prediction.


Putin quote:


“Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind,” said Putin, reports RT. “It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.”

Putin says the nation that leads in AI ‘will be the ruler of the world’ (Sept 2017)

Me thinks the first to dominate Space and establish a militarized 'zone' will be the first to rule Earth...to the Moon. Peasants on Earth will be monitored & controlled by Starlink via embedded nano IoT devices with our conscious minds locked into a fake 8th realm. IDK, just a grim thought.

As you well know this topic is an endless rabbit hole...No, it's a labyrinth with many shiny objects, traps & dead ends where escape tunnels are being closed and the mind is captured.




30 years ago yesterday the movie Terminator 2: Judgment Day opened in theaters across the USA. I think that Day of Skynet going LIVE is nearer than we think; already here?

People have no idea what is coming, and neither do I, but least I can read/interpret some of the signs and it's not pretty.

Absolutely, mate. They have zero scruples, and this why all liars go to hell. Lies and propaganda films aside, what's sad about it all is how people in America could go along, not consider the obvious you could get from a Lifetime movie. This control freak agenda is as simple in its nature as some psycho moron, abusing his wife. What does he do? He isolates her from her friends and family, her wholesome support system, of reason and care (cancel conservative culture). Put them on a steady diet of the control freak agenda (the Fascist setup, government and corporate interests seeking to indoctrinate, normalize things perverse and unacceptable behaviors). Belittle the wife as dumb, fat, whatever, such that nobody else would even care for them, but the control freak abuser (try to make faith and normalcy bigoted, whiteness shameful). It always ends in the control freaks abusing victims they create. Look at all history. And why? Not really politics, rather just because. They merely latch on to some contrasting view, to rally and suck in their victims. At the root, they suffer God complexes like Satan, like a serial killer derives power from murder, elevate their self image by abuse of power, which is evidence, to these idiot pathological narcissists, that they are superior beings. They most want to be feared. Psychos love being feared, the sort of thing that gives a lot of them an erection. Talking about using nukes and F-15s on Americans probably makes Creepy Joe's crotch tingle, better than a pedo hair sniff. This is why so many liberals are pedophiles, nothing like a terrorized, helpless child to exercise control over. If people knew the demonic nature of what they've signed up for, how, for instance, they have another sort of slavery in store for the black man, and everybody else. It's all because of the wickedness of the power hungry, and old as the hills, in human aberrant psychology and resulting tragedies of history. Man's really bright. Wash, rinse and repeat the worst, since they started recording civilization: Creepy Joe is just our Nimrod. (And how he does babble. More evidence God must have a sense of humor.)

PSYOP CREED
by Major Edward Rouse, U.S. Army Retired

Throughout history, in war and peace, I have played many roles.

I am inspiration.

I am motivation.

I am intimidation.

I am deception.

I am...PSYOP.

I was the inspiration for Hannibal to take his elephants over the Alps.

I was the motivation in the words "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" and "Remember the Alamo".

I was the intimidation of the sound of Gideon's trumpets.

I was the deception used against the Trojans.

I was and I am...PSYOP.

I rode with Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan and Sun Tsu.

I saw action in both World Wars and in Korea and Vietnam.

I helped bring a speedy victory in Just Cause and Desert Storm.

I brought the hope of peace to Haiti, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo and Afghanistan

I was and I am...PSYOP.

I was the "talking tanks" asking the Nazi soldiers, "why die for a lost cause?"

I was the leaflet which told the Japanese to "Cease Resistance".

I was the Commando Solo broadcasts to the Taliban warning them that,

we will destroy those who harbor terrorism.

I was and I am...PSYOP.

I bring the light of truth where before lay the darkness of lies.

I deliver hope to those who are in despair.

I bring fear to those who believe their actions are without consequence.

I was and I am...PSYOP.

I am that voice that tells the enemy to surrender or die.

I am the shadow of doubt that makes the enemy question their actions.

I am that power of influence that despots despise.

I was and I am...PSYOP.

I am the broadcast of reason over radio, television and loudspeaker.

I am the light of truth in print media, leaflet, newspaper, handbill or poster.

I am the force multiplier that wins my country's wars.

I was, I am and I will forever remain...PSYOP.

Talk about mass psychological operations, regarding liberal racism and the narrative of the repressed, black, second class citizen, who whitey must be sneaking around and stealing school books from, in the middle of the night? A normal, American, hard studying and hard working, free black man or woman, that has taken advantage of the system of education and the rewards of contributing goods and services people will pay for, who has done what average, poor white Americans have done to advance, that is, crack books, instead of cooking crack, on the liberal Democrat vote plantations? You're an Uncle Tom black if you simply tell the truth and point out you worked and studied and are making it in America.

There is a stunning documentary of some of the best and brightest of the African American community, that refused to be anybody's race card, refused to be labeled second class citizens, rather see themselves as people, like us all: the documentary is called Uncle Tom. I urge everybody to see it. It destroys the diabolical divide and conquer, race card, the hate narrative of the left, and the tragedy of their black victims, perpetually beaten down they can't but riot, they can't give right answers to math problems, are too stupid to get an ID to vote, blah, blah, blah, that evil, Democrat politicians, running the vote plantation, need to keep repressed, self loathing, and angry. This documentary thoroughly destroys the whole charade, thoughtful black men and women speaking their minds and destroying the charade, how being successful and rejecting hate makes them Uncle Toms, in the liberal racist community, that you better believe is really frightened as all hell of the conservative, educated and successful black person, knowing they can't stand too many of those around, lest we all simply become people, living together in productive peace, racists of all stripes becoming dinosaurs and societal poison at the ballot box they really are, just purveyors of perpetual strife and hate.

Hey very nice posts amigo and it really is isn't it?

Did like this paragraph:



"It is the general strategy of the ruling establishment to weaponize the ignorance of the masses in order to better control populations and in order to mobilize the masses in service of agendas that are not in the best interests of the citizenry"

On PSOs




Also wasn't surprised to see pharmaceutical companies being implicated in blatant fake 'VNR' propaganda.




"Well, it’s like this. First of all, we’re talking about fake news. These are news stories done by journalists, but these are journalists who now work for public relations firms employed by the State Department, employed by pharmaceutical companies, and they’re producing news stories, video news releases, which are provided free to TV networks and TV stations, and are then aired by TV networks and news producers as if they were news, often as if they were produced locally by the station. And what this is, actually, is propaganda"

Yes indeed. My mind really wandered off thinking of all the possibilities just based on what we've witnessed the past 18 months. We certainly seem to have a huge population of 'useful idiots' that I believe will have a rude awakening in the coming years; probably before Uncle Joe's term is up the way things are moving & changing.

AFAIK, America and New Zealand are the only countries which allow big pharma to advertise their cornucopia of synthetic poisons on TV 24/7 and double on weekends. I'm sure they tripled their profits during lockdown depression.
