    The Screens

    Source: Caitlin Johnstone Rogue Journalist October 21, 2018 Caitlin Johnstone We are surrounded by screens full of voices that are always lying to us, and experts wonder why we’re so crazy and miserable all the time. The screens tell us, “This is a perfectly normal and sane way of doing things. It is perfectly normal and sane to strip the earth bare and poison the air and the water in an economic system which requires infinite growth on a finite planet. People who say otherwise are raving lunatics!” And the social engineers wonder why there’s increasing disaffection and alienation among the populace. The screens tell us, “Just spend your time…

    Trump Minus Narrative Equals Bushbama

    Source: Caitlin Johnstone Rogue Journalist September 8, 2018 Caitlin Johnstone Barack Obama is making headlines today. In a speech at the University of Illinois, Obama called out the “politics of fear” which are used by his successor and criticized an insufficient denunciation of “Nazi sympathizers” by the current administration. “How hard can that be?” asked the former president. “Saying Nazis are bad?” Also in the news, getting far less attention than the sparkly spectacle of Fauxgressive Jesus wagging his finger at Orange Hitler for being too nice to Nazis, is a report from the Washington Post (open it in a private browser to get around the paywall) that the Trump administration has…

    Dreamers

    Source: Caitlin Johnstone Rogue Journalist August 12, 2018 Caitlin Johnstone People try to tell me that there is no hope. That the status quo is too fully locked in. That the sociopathic manipulators who are driving our species toward war, ecocide and Orwellian dystopia are just too powerful and too good at what they do. That people are too stupid, lazy and deeply asleep to ever have any hope of waking up to what’s going on and throwing off the mechanisms of manipulation and control so that they can turn things around before it’s too late. Every day people try to tell me this. I talk every day about how…

    How Humanity Could Become Impossible To Propagandize

    Source: Caitlin Johnstone Rogue Journalist June 5, 2018 Caitlin Johnstone I’ve been writing a lot about how the ability to control public narratives is the only real power in this world, and how the need of the ruling elites to wield that power explains everything from the feigned panic about “Russian propaganda” to Wikipedia’s bizarre editing policies to why Joy Reid still has a job. In my opinion it is impossible to overemphasize the impact that narrative and the myriad agendas to control it has on human life. Indeed, if a critical mass of individuals experienced a deep enough insight into the nature of mental narrative, all of our challenges…

    America’s Big-Brother ‘News’ Media

    Source: Strategic Culture Foundation May 29, 2018 Eric ZUESSE The way it works was well displayed, May 25th, on the opinion page of America’s largest-circulation newspaper, USA Today. Each of the three articles there presumed that the US Government is fighting for the public’s interests, and that the countries it invades or threatens to invade are evil. It is all, and always, propaganda for the US military, which is the reason why the US military is the most-respected institution in the United States, despite being the most wasteful and the most corrupt of all federal Departments. The US public don’t think of the military as being driven by the military corporations —…

    May You Live in Stupid, Corrupt and yet Fascinating Times

    Source: Liberty Blitzkrieg May 30, 2018 Michael Krieger In the old days, America’s top spies would complete their tenures at the CIA or one of the other Washington puzzle palaces and segue to more ordinary pursuits. Some wrote their memoirs. One ran for president. Another died a few months after surrendering his post. But today’s national-security establishment retiree has a different game plan. After so many years of brawling in the shadows, he yearns for a second, lucrative career in the public eye. He takes a crash course in speaking in soundbites, refreshes his wardrobe and signs a TV news contract. Then, several times a week, waits for a network limousine to shuttle him to the…

    Never Let Anyone Call You Crazy For Doubting Establishment War Narratives

    Source: Caitlin Johnstone Rogue Journalist April 25, 2018 Caitlin Johnstone There has still been no retraction or correction of The Guardian‘s demonstrably false and completely indefensible claim that two normal antiwar Twitter accounts were controlled not by real people but by bot programs based in Russia. This is the sort of environment that has been created by the ongoing Russia panic that is plaguing the western world: one wherein mainstream news outlets can openly lie about dissenting voices and antiwar activists, refuse to retract or apologize for those lies, and suffer no consequences. And yet they still have the gall to paint anyone who expresses doubt about the narratives they…

    How Wikipedia Lies

    Source: Washington’s Blog April 20, 2018 by Eric Zuesse Did you know that Vice President Dick Cheney admitted that on 11 September 2001 he, as President George W. Bush’s brief stand-in during the 9/11 attacks that hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, issued an order (and it was carried out) to shoot down United Airlines Flight 93 while it was in the air near Pittsburgh? If what he said at the time was true, then the standard ‘historical’ account of the plane’s having been brought down as a result of action by the passengers, would be concocted, not history at all. Here is the video-clip of V.P. Cheney…

    An Open Letter to Olivia Solon

    Source: The Corbett Report February 11, 2018 James Corbett As attentive Corbett Report viewers will already know, The Guardian was the recipient of the highest dishonor of the year this year: The award for “Fakest Fake News Story of the Year 2017” at my First Annual REAL Fake News Awards ( aka “the Dinos”). Specifically, the dishonor was bestowed on The Guardian’s San Francisco-based technology reporter, Olivia Solon, for her breathtaking contribution to the annals of establishment fake news hackery, “How Syria’s White Helmets became victims of an online propaganda machine.” The report, for those who have not read it yet, is as exactly what you would expect from an…

    Meet the Elite: Father of Mainstream Media, Skull and Bones Member Henry Luce

    Source: Activist Post November 23, 2017 By Markab Algedi Henry Luce could be titled the “father of mainstream media.” He was referred to as “the most influential private citizen in America of his day.” The person behind Life, Fortune, and Time magazines, his cooperation with the powers of his day perfectly demonstrate what “the elite” is, and how power works today. His influence, connection to American industrialists, and membership in the secret society Skull and Bones at Yale University make him a relevant character to learn about. Luce’s Time magazine was founded in the mid-1920s with the help of money from J.P. Morgan figures, Rockefeller’s Standard Oil associates, and other…
