These are the reasons why I don’t trust mainstream news. It is all theater and it’s completely staged. I only use the news as a guide to get an idea of what is going on, and then I do further research myself…

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.  Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country…

We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.  This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized.  Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society…

In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of political or business, in our society conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses.  It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

  • “Propoganda” by Edward L. Barnays 1928    Suggested reading books of Edward Bernays to learn how the media and government fool the masses on an unprecedented scale.  


“I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is Mass Psychology… It’s importance had been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda… Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class (Elite).  The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated.”

BUSTED! Ben Shapiro smacks The Hill for straight-up LYING about Berkeley speech

Conservative commentator to protestors at Berkeley speech: “Go to hell, you pathetic, lying, stupid jackasses”

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro bashed protesters of his speech at the University of California, Berkeley on Thursday night, which had drawn increased security measures.
“Thanks to antifa and the supposed anti-fascist brigade for exposing what the radical left truly is,” Shapiro said in his speech, referring to anti-fascist, or “antifa,” activists.

So why couldn’t The Hill be bothered to include that detail in their tweet and headline? It’s almost as if they’re more interested in stirring the pot than they are in accurately representing what Shapiro said. But why on earth would they do something like that?

CNN FAKE NEWS COMPILATION pt 1 – EXPOSING their lies, fabrications, half truths, and bias

CNN (aka Clinton News Network) has a long history of fake news stories, half truths, and blatant partisan bias. Less than a week ago Brian Stelter had a segment were he talked about fake news sites, and gave a few points to identifying them – however CNN clearly qualifies as a fake news site according to his list. This is only part 1, out of many more to come.

CNN FAKE NEWS COMPILATION pt 2 – exposing their lies, bias and half truths

Remember when CNN blamed the vets for the deaths BLM was protesting? Remember when they claimed that the US military used nerve gas on its own men? Remember when they called Ron Paul “dangerous” for wanting to stop a dumb ineffective war in the middle East? Remember when they edited various BLM and Hillary videos, to make them look good? Remember when they had a media black out on Bernie Sanders, cause they wanted Hillary to win?

CNN FAKE NEWS COMPILATION pt 3 – exposing their lies, bias and half truths

CNN blames the Vikings, and Vlad “dracula” the Impaler for Jihadists! Amanpour also blames FOX for making them cover the Iraq War (seriously). Jon Lemon shows us that he learned about firearms from Call of Duty. And finally Obama unknowingly warns us all of the dangers of CNN and his own propaganda.

CNN Fake Newscast Best Quality

Charles Jaco was the CNN reporter famous for covering the 1990 Persian Gulf War.

The first part of this video shows the stage set he was on, and he was clowning around with fellow CNN staff. The Saudi Arabian “hotel” in the background were fake palm trees and a blue wall in a studio. This clip was leaked by CNN staff.

The second part of this video was a live CNN satellite feed recorded onto VHS showing the final cut. Charles Jaco was wearing a different jacket, but he had the same act. The acting was terrible as Charles Jaco wore a gas mask, and his fellow correspondent Carl Rochelle wore a helmet. The sirens and missile sound effects are part of the stage set. The camera never pans out or shows the sky.

These clips are the highest quality of this newscast and behind the scenes.

Yes, Charles Jaco was a reporter for CNN. Google his name and read the results.  Charles Jaco currently works as a reporter for FOX 2 NOW in Saint Louis, Missouri.    This video is FAIR USE depicting an historical event.

FAKE NEWS: Syria edition pt 1

The BBC fakes a “chemical/napalm attack” for TV propaganda.

MSNBC/CNN/FOX, all blame Assad for al-Nusra rebels gassing Syrian civilians in 2013. War = big ratings. UN investigator and former CIA analyst tell us what really happened.

The White House refuses to show evidence that Russia is hitting hospitals purposely. Can’t even name hospital.

Danny Dayem – professional British FSA propagandist, sucks at lying. But CNN eats it.

VIA – ALLEN WEST — CNN busted when sharp-eyed viewers notice something odd about this “rescue”, By Derrick Wilburn, 11:14am August 31, 2017
>> “Fake news.” Two words that were hardly ever put together in the same sentence a mere matter of months ago are now uttered and typed thousands of times a day. On multiple occasions Donald Trump has stood in front of reporters from CNN and called them “fake news”, he’s lambasted the network on his Twitter feed and essentially gone on a crusade against the one-time cable news giant.
>> It’s not just Trump. Thanks to the internet, millions and millions of eyes are trained onto and looking out for biased if not outright false reporting, and CNN has once again gotten busted for faking a story — and this one is of the most sickening variety.
>> CNN has been caught leveraging an unfolding natural disaster, Hurricane Harvey, to push its own false narrative…..

EPA blasts Associated Press journalist over report about Houston superfund sites

By Maxwell Tani    Sep. 3, 2017

>> In a fiery and personal statement on Sunday, the EPA dubbed the story “incredibly misleading,” saying it “creates panic and politicizes the hard work of first responders who are actually in the affected area.”
>> “Through aerial imaging, EPA has already conducted initial assessments at 41 Superfund sites – 28 of those sites show no damage, and 13 have experienced flooding,” the statement said. “This was left out of the original story, along with the fact that EPA and state agencies worked with responsible parties to secure Superfund sites before the hurricane hit. Leaving out this critical information is misleading.”
>> “Once again, in an attempt to mislead Americans, the Associated Press is cherry-picking facts, as EPA is monitoring Superfund sites around Houston and we have a team of experts on the ground working with our state and local counterparts responding to Hurricane Harvey,” EPA associate administrator Liz Bowman said. “Anything to the contrary is yellow journalism.”

Toxic waste sites near Houston flooded by Harvey, EPA not on scene

By Jason Dearen and Michael Biesecker, Associated Press, September 2, 2017

Poster’s comment: “Fake news media can’t help themselves with their attacks on anything Trump! The EPA is not seen here floating around here so they report it.  By the way the site is an OBAMA era waste site.  And come to think of it didn’t the Obama EPA pollute that river in Colorado with mining waste and let’s not forget the lead in Flint Michigan…YES the regional EPA director resigned over that.”

Has the NYTimes Gone Collectively Mad?

By Robert Parry   September 11, 2017

For those of us who have taught journalism or worked as editors, a sign that an article is the product of sloppy or dishonest journalism is that a key point will be declared as flat fact when it is unproven or a point in serious dispute – and it then becomes the foundation for other claims, building a story like a high-rise constructed on sand.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. 

This use of speculation as fact is something to guard against particularly in the work of inexperienced or opinionated reporters. But what happens when this sort of unprofessional work tops page one of The New York Times one day as a major “investigative” article and reemerges the next day in even more strident form as a major Times editorial? Are we dealing then with an inept journalist who got carried away with his thesis or are we facing institutional corruption or even a collective madness driven by ideological fervor?

NYT Corrects Story Claiming 17 Intel Agencies ‘Agree’ On Russia

By:  Holmes Lybrand  06/29/2017 

The New York Times issued a correction Thursday on an article that incorrectly claimed all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies agreed that “Russia orchestrated the attacks, and did it to help get [Trump] elected.”

The original article, published June 25, covered certain reactions that President Donald Trump gave in response to Russian cyber attacks and interactions with the 2016 presidential election.

…The Daily Caller News Foundation published a fact-check June 1 that rated Clinton’s claim as “False.”

James Comey outs New York Times for fake news

James Comey, testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, slid in a short and simple statement that was level in tone but nonetheless shocking in content.
He called a widely cited story from The New York Times that painted President Donald Trump in a negative light as fake news — without actually calling it fake news.

Pentagon Involved in Over 800 Movies from 1911 to 2017

RT America Published on Sep 14, 2017

The Independent recently did an investigation into the link between the Pentagon and Hollywood and came up with some startling new figures. They obtained a lot of files, mainly through FOIA requests, that show that between 1911 and 2017, more than 800 big Hollywood films received support from the Department of Defense. That translates to about 8 a year. The report also reveals many hundreds of TV shows the Pentagon also was involved in.

Video Source – Socioecohistory

COMMENTS:  Philip Strub is the official entertainment-liaison of the Department of Defense and he communicates with the directors of movies so that the movie is mutually in favor of both the director and the entertainment-liaison.  Evidence: So, depending on your definition of “propaganda”, it could very well be considered that. Much of it’s done for accuracy purposes. One thing that I did notice though is that A LOT (including an entire section) was blurred out, so that’s probably where the propaganda is if it does exist.. Still not certain though.

Flashback 1939: Catholic Priest Exposes War Agenda – “The Propagandists Are at Work in Government, in Journalism And in the Cinemas. Forewarned is Forearmed!”

by  Martin Hill, 

“This conclusion my friends is crystal clear. Namely that the propaganda machine is already at work . The press, the cinema, well known citizens, are either wittingly or unwittingly conditioning America for war. The invasion is upon you! Racial and religious psychology is being employed to line up leaders. Catch words are being used as bait to deceive the masses. Once more therefore I restate, what are we Americans planning to do about this foreign invasion? An invasion not of soldiers armed with machine guns – but of professional propagandists to stand behind the remarks at the dinner table or assault you from the silver screen or the columms of a newspaper as they explode the bombs of poison gas over the countryside of our country… A sane parent would not welcome a leper in his home to live with his children. And a sane government that must not permit the lepers of propaganda to seek hospitality within our shores and thereby spread the disease of hate, of war, of murder, and of injustice amongst our innocent people!”

Fr. Charles E. Coughlin, 5/7/39

75 years ago, on May 7, 1939, Fr. Charles E. Coughlin of Royal Oak, Michigan presented his weekly radio address to millions of Americans. This particular week, his address was entitled “Propaganda At Work.” His announcer prefaced the broadcast by announcing, as usual, that the message would be “printed in social justice magazine and will be available to all members of this audience.” The announcer added that the broadcast was “supported by those making sacrifices to preserve Americanism and Christianity in this nation.”
