Many people are still utterly oblivious to the sad reality that the mass media is primarily engaged in one task above all others: misleading the public in accordance with the State’s (read: Deep State’s) needs.
Various media tactics play to our already established biases and logical blind spots. It is child’s play to add another layer of disinformation on top of firmly set foundational assumptions that are supportive of it. Nothing is easier for the Cabal/Deep State and its proxy governments than to feed us more of the bullshit we have long since been manipulated into accepting.
We have entered the post-fact era of news reporting, according to some observers, but it appears to me that we’ve been in that era for quite some time now, and only now that public distrust of government and media is at record-high levels is the establishment operating at record-high levels of damage control, busily dubbing all non-State-approved media sources as “fake news,” and struggling harder than ever to keep the people in their conceptual prisons.
Many unwitting folks welcome this activity gladly, failing to realise that the mass media is, in combination with mainstream education, the primary tool used to control the behaviour of the populace in ways that serve the Control System which undermines our freedoms and cripples our minds in a downward spiral of deceit and exploitation.
Below we break down our five current mass media thought-control strategies employed by these “dinosaur outlets “so that we might be somewhat less susceptible to them here on out. You may want to share this with friends who aren’t quite up to speed yet.
Warning: What you are about to read is not government-approved and may result in mind expansion, enhanced cynicism, and sharpening of critical thinking faculties.
5 Primary Strategies for Thought-Control
1. Fake News in the Post-Fact Era: Lie and Fabricate to Suit Your Purposes
As a mass media (State-approved) outlet, you’re free to falsify and confabulate information or make false claims with impunity and make no attempt to appeal to legitimate evidence. This is such a fundamental mainstream media strategy that it saturates us on a daily basis. Whatever the Establishment (the “Cabal”) decrees is repeated ad nauseum as gospel in the mass media.
If you believe I am being unjustly harsh, then please consider the words of Dr. Udo Ulfkatte (from the video above), the late veteran German journalist who not long ago outed mainstream media for its complicity in the global fraud against humanity:
“I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public…It is not right what I have done in the past – to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia…and it is not right what my colleagues do and what they have done in the past, because they are bribed to betray the people…all over Europe…I am fed up with this propaganda.”
Dr. Ulfkatte added that in his pro-American days of writing, he was “supported by the Central Intelligence Agency,” and repeated that he was “fed up with it” and didn’t want to do it anymore. Not long after publishing his explosive book Bought Journalists / Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News, Ulfkatte was found dead, allegedly of “heart failure.” Ponder on that for a moment in the knowledge that in black projects there is electromagnetic weaponry that can remotely simulate or trigger “heart failure” as well as other physiological breakdowns.
Ulfkatte had said that most corporate media journalists in the United States and Europe are “so-called non-official cover,” meaning that they work for an intelligence agency. “I think it is especially the case with British journalists, because they have a much closer relationship. It is especially the case with Israeli journalists. Of course with French journalists…It is the case for Australians, [with] journalists from New Zealand, from Taiwan, well, there is many countries,” he said.
Consider all of this next time you hear any pronouncements made by the media on the subjects of politics, health, medicine, war, terrorism, etc.
Among the bogus stories Ulfkatte says he was ordered by the CIA to plant in his paper was the false claim that Libyan President Moammar Gaddafi was building poison gas factories in 2011.
“The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia,” he told RT.
Ulfkatte’s words are a plain confession of guilt and complicity. There is no theory here, it is all conspiracy fact. And lest you think the activities of the alphabet agencies are restricted to TV media, think on the following.
“[T]he tycoons told General Butler the American people would accept the new government because they controlled all the newspapers.“1 (emphasis added)
This was decades ago, and we know that concentration of the media into the hands of fewer and fewer owners has intensified ever since. The situation is such now that mainstream media outlets are to be avoided across the board by any thinking individual.
Former Washington Post publisher Philip Graham “believing that the function of the press was more often than not to mobilize consent for the policies of the government, was one of the architects of what became a widespread practice: the use and manipulation of journalists by the CIA”. This scandal was known by its code name Operation MOCKINGBIRD. Former Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein cites a former CIA deputy director as saying, “It was widely known that Phil Graham was someone you could get help from”.2
There are countless examples of fraudulent MSM news that could be cited. Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” was a pretext for invading Iraq – a pretext that was known by intel. agencies and the US government to be false at the time. It is even openly acknowledged in the mass media now that it was a fraudulent claim – not that it’s any consolation to the tens of thousands of Iraqis who died as a result of the USA’s invasion. The fact is the WMD notion was made up; pure fiction concocted to serve a violent and predatory agenda under the guise of “liberation.”
Let’s not forget the infamous CNN Charles Jaco clip (above) wherein he appears to be giving a fake news report from a stage set while the subtitle states he is in Saudi Arabia during the Desert Storm operation (Jan 17 – Feb 28, 1991). There is something (everything!) exceedingly “off” about this clip and I encourage you to watch it carefully and decide whether this is a classic example of blatantly false news reporting or not (Jaco sent some menacing letters around to websites featuring this video, threatening legal action, so I’m choosing my words carefully here).3
There are many Youtube videos in which apparently fake news reports by mainstream outlets (CNN is a star) have been compiled together for easy viewing. I encourage you to do some exploring if you haven’t already seen the depths these media whores will sink to. It is clear that mainstream outlets are not above using a green screen to create the illusion of being “on the ground” at the scene of the action in order to get the “scoop” on other outlets, or, more to the point, to promote the false narratives designed by the Establishment for our consumption.
The Honourable Mention Goes to…
Crisis actors are known to be employed by media outlets and intel. agencies to participate in staged events with the aim of making their fake news appear authentic. This is something of an open secret of the industry now, and Youtube is your friend on this one too. Youtube compilations and video analyses make it very convenient for us to show that fake news is standard practice for CIA-controlled mass media. Crisis actors, stage sets, props, bogus scripts, sellout journalists: it’s all par for the course for the dying mass media.
2. Denounce Alternative Views as Conspiracy Theories
In 1967 the CIA seeded the term “conspiracy theories/theorists” into the public consciousness with one goal in mind: to discourage free and independent investigation, analysis and open discussion of facts. What sparked this initiative was increasing criticism of the Warren Commision’s report into the assassination of JFK – cracks were starting to appear and be noticed. The CIA was anxious that the public was not being sufficiently thought-controlled and that counter-arguments to the Establishment’s narrative needed to be more effectively dealt with.
The memo, which was marked “psych” (psychological operations), according to zerohedge.com, outlined a number of strategies for shaping and controlling public opinion, all of which are clearly still employed throughout the mass media today. Part 3 (b) of the memo is worth reproducing in full:
To employ propaganda assets to answer and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passage to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories.4
The CIA strategy involved a self-referencing closed network of assets and allies all endorsing each other and referring the public to each other’s material in an attempt to create the illusion of Establishment credibility, and a “consensus” viewpoint, while simultaneously tarring all other perspectives as mere “conspiracy theories.” It was a neat (read: dirty) trick which has worked wonders for these liars ever since.
Summarising the CIA memo’s guidance, the other pieces of advice for information management included:
- claim the conspiracy would be too vast for so many people to keep quiet about it
- dismiss eyewitness testimony as unreliable
- claim no new evidence has emerged that the authorities have not already considered
- do not initiate new discussion around “conspiracy theories,” but only address those discussions already taking place (so, ignore the problem wherever possible and don’t draw attention to it)
- claim it is destructive/unhelpful, or irresponsible to speculate
These strategies are all still visible today in the media’s activities, the same tired old memes and techniques being endlessly repeated to the point of catatonia.
My years of study have shown me one thing very clearly about conspiracies: conspiracies are how the world runs. Obama’s very own Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein has written:
Of course some conspiracy theories…have turned out to be true. The Watergate hotel room used by Democratic National Committee was, in fact, bugged by Republican officials, operating at the behest of the White House. In the 1950s, the Central Intelligence Agency did, in fact, administer LSD and related drugs under Project MKULTRA, in an effort to investigate the possibility of “mind control.” Operation Northwoods, a rumored plan by the Department of Defense to simulate acts of terrorism and to blame them on Cuba, really was proposed by high-level officials…5
On and on it goes.
3. Blame the Russians (or any of the other invented Establishment bogeymen)
The “Commies” are a tried and true bugaboo that is still used by establishment media to distract us from wherever we should be placing our attention. A recent blatant example is the notion that Russia is somehow responsible for Hillary’s Clinton’s defeat by Trump in the US Presidential elections. The Cabal media will try just about anything to de-legitimise the crushing the defeat their chosen puppet (Hillary Clinton) suffered. Casting aspersions on the outcome was only the natural thing (for them) to do.
The “Red Menace” is not as the Establishment would have us believe, however, that doesn’t stop the US government and media from blaming “the Russians” for supposedly “hacking” the US election and corrupting the outcome. There was no credible evidence provided for their insinuation, of course.
Evidence has not traditionally been the strong suit of the mainstream media.
In fact, a recent Wikileak has revealed that intelligence agencies like the CIA can simulate Russian (or other) hacks by creating a “cyber fingerprint” that incriminates whoever the Establishment wants to scapegoat or demonise, so it is utterly meaningless for the US media (or any other Cabal media outlets) to point fingers at Russia or anyone else for “hacking” their systems in light of the foregoing information. “Russia hacked us” should be read as “we hacked ourselves and tried to pin it on Russia.”
Along with the new (March 2017) data-dump of CIA material, WikiLeaks issued this:
“The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation. With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.”6
It’s about misdirection and/or creating a cover story for executing a plan or agenda that you would never publicly admit to, akin to blaming Bin Laden and his lackeys for 9-11 when it was in fact Mossad and key elements within the US government and defense structure. Giving the public a scapegoat also satisfies a “primal” emotional need for focusing attention on a “guilty party,” someone to loathe and fear, and plan and enact retribution against.
The latter is also part of the “problem, reaction, solution” strategy designed to preempt the public into demanding the Establishent’s pre-ordained “solution” to a crisis or disaster that the Establishment itself has engineered but made to look like some other culprit is responsible (see Operation Northwoods for one example that, fortunately, never got off the ground, or 9-11 for an example that unfortunately did).
4. The Hegelian Dialectic and the False Dichotomy:
For the mass media’s purposes, you’re either “pro” or “anti,” “left” or “right,” “liberal” or “conservative,” and there are no other options.
The purpose of the false dichotomy is to restrict thought to two polar opposites that are diametrically opposed, in accordance with the modern bastardized form of the Hegelian dialectic. Hegel’s premise was that the human mind can’t understand anything unless it can be split into two polar opposites, thus his formula was: thesis + antithesis > synthesis. The Hegelian dialectic was meant to be a way for two parties in disagreement to eventually reach understanding (synthesis) through logical argument.
The idea as this concept is applied today by the media is to keep people at loggerheads in an unresolvable stalemate in which the only visible option to each party is to dig heels in even deeper, and attack the other side ever more vigorously. The current equation has omitted the part about logical argument, because that is how the situation has been deliberately engineered to stifle progress.
If you are asking “what is the point of that?” or “who in their right mind would want to have a system like that?” then understand that the international banksters and intelligence agencies (Deep State) – or from a lower level, giant transnational corporations – run the show and have ruled over Western “democracy” for a long time, socially engineering the populace through mass media and deliberately dumbed-down mainstream “education.” This is not a “theory,” but a well documented reality.
The last President of America to challenge the banksters’ hegemony was JFK and we know how that turned out for him when he tried to do the right thing by the people. The globalist oligarchs would have none of it. The slaves must not be allowed to leave the plantation. Ever since JFK, the “right” and the “left” have been controlled by a “para-governmental” force known as the Fed. The Fed, of course, is very much connected to Big Pharma – we’re talking about the same network of elitist sociopaths that dominate the world’s major industries (and run the international pedophile rings), essentially.
The point of the false dichotomy is primarily to foster tunnel vision in the public and prevent intelligent, flexible thinking, instead conducing to simplistic dogmatism and meaningless polemic. Prevention of learning is arguably the primary goal of the false dichotomy, because new information, and more sophisticated thought patterns and paradigms would be the death knell for Big Pharma’s stranglehold over the collective human psyche.
The most topical real world example of how this false dichotomy situation can play out is the “debate” around vaccination.
The media’s job is to present what I call an “absolute ontology” (and to promote “asymmetrical epistemology”) wherein the deck is stacked in favour of the Deep State, the corporations, and their proxy governments.
In essence: one point of view (The Establishment’s) is deemed as intrinsically more valid than all others. How can you topple such a sacred cow? It’s like trying to show a fundamentalist Christian that the Bible is fallible and riddled with self-contradiction – doomed to failure.
Vaccines are simply “safe and effective” – end of story. If you’re not blindly and completely “pro-vax,” then, the only other location you can occupy in this moronic polemic is “anti-vax,” and in the false world crafted by Big Pharma and the media, everyone who is “anti-vax” is a crackpot lunatic worthy of only disdain and ridicule. The question “what if their statements or claims actually have some merit?” is NEVER entertained – it cannot be, for then new information and awareness might develop, and we can’t have that if thought-control is to be maintained.
Crucially, nothing is said about the issues that the “pro” and “anti” representatives appearing in the media are not directly addressing. Attention is fixed on and restricted to whatever is deemed appropriate (how “wonderful” vaccines are), while the most important data is deliberately suppressed.
For example, have you ever seen anyone appear on mainstream TV to discuss vaccination (or fluoride, for that matter) within the context of covert softkill depopulation? I haven’t. What about vaccines and nagalase? No, of course not. The discussion is restricted to a biased narrative about how vaccines “don’t cause autism.” The wider array of biological harm – and evidence supporting it – is not discussed. The hundreds of scientific papers demonstrating the danger of vaccines are verboten.
The “debate” on this subject is farcical at best, but designed to limit opinions to slogans, buzz words, and catchphrases, stifling any actual critical thinking. Absolutely anyone who parrots the party line of “safe and effective and the best thing since sliced bread” is given all of the airtime and praise in the world, while anyone raising serious questions or issues on the subject is marginalised and diminished from the outset by the rigged (government/corporatocracy) narrative.
Keeping discussion reduced to a simple “pro” or “anti” stance means that there is no room for compromise, no middle ground, no room to evolve one’s viewpoint in the light of incoming information and discovery – and more to the point, because those tarred as “anti-vaxxers” are so thoroughly demonised and persecuted, there is little incentive for anyone to depart from the status quo and challenge the herd mentality with independent analysis. Thus, the sheep keep themselves in the pen.
Once the ego has firmly identified with a paradigm it stops listening, stops thinking, stops questioning, and – above all else – stops learning. Perhaps that is why Robert Anton Wilson said that “belief is the death of intelligence.” Stalemate is inevitable with this being the prevailing psychological dynamic, but then again, the purpose of the false dichotomy is not to facilitate real progress, but stifle it.
5. Tell People Exactly What to Think Instead of Presenting the Facts
The idea that the media is a benign force whose mission is to offer balanced perspective and multiple viewpoints such that the public can make their own informed decision is profoundly naive in light of intelligence agency involvement behind the scenes in determining programming content. The idea is to engineer in the public those viewpoints that serve vested interests. Period. Aside from that, most other media content is generally mindless distraction fuel, meaningless fluff for the stupefied masses to titillate themselves with (celebrity gossip, sporting coverage, “feel good” pieces, weather forecasts, etc.). Two real life examples follow.
Example 1: MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski (below) recently made a startling admission of sorts during an exchange with Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough about President Trump possibly “trying to undermine the media.”
She said: “And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, [Trump] could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
There you have it, folks, straight from the horse’s as…, er, mouth. It’s “our job” to “control what people think.” It’s there in black and white, in plain English.
Example 2: I have a recent example from more local sources. A friend of mine whose name I won’t mention was recently involved in organising events for a visiting speaker from overseas who has had the Medical Mafia (and Media Mafia) in Australia frothing at the mouth. My friend was speaking to a “journalist” from the Northern Star who offered to “cover” one of the events:
“I said ‘no thank you, you guys haven’t been overly truthful when covering us so far.’
His verbatim response: ‘It’s not our job to be truthful or helpful.'”8
Enough said. What more do you need?
MSNBC and these other media whores around the world are operating from the same playbook that Cabal stooge George W. Bush was on Nov. 10, 2001, when he exhorted the world, “Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories,” thus demonstrating the asymmetrical epistemology that was already so well entrenched during his terro…, er, tenure.
As incompetent and foolish as Shrub came to be perceived by so many millions, many of those same people still unconsciously follow his advice by not tolerating “outrageous [read: any] conspiracy theories.” The CIA/Deep State has done its work well. Credit where it’s due.
Mainstream media control is so centralized now that the only option for the thinking man or woman is to turn to the unregulated information purveyors on the web, where, yes, anything at all can be posted, including suppressed truth, which is a radically different situation to the MSM (fake news), where anything BUT the truth is allowed.
