“The creation of this empire has been facilitated by the power of the corporate mass media, increasingly falling into fewer and fewer hands.  The ownership of the corporations that today control the information available to the broadest portion of the population can be traced back to the same families and companies who backed Hitler.”
– Jim Marrs, Rise Of The Fourth Reich – The Secret Societies That Threaten To Take Over America, pg. 353

Media of all type plays a vital role into what we see as ‘truth’.

If the media reports that there’s terrorism  attacks ever present, then that must be the truth.  It’s not like there’s statistics that say otherwise.  If the media says the two-party system [duopoly, anyone?] that sells out the populace nigh every time to corporate interests is fair and just, then it is ‘truth’.  If further, the media states that the economy is good, then it must be the truth.  It’s not like stores like Walmart or fast food places like McDonalds are closing establishments by the hundreds.  [P.S.   Those aren’t the only business closing stores en masse.]

Never mind the fact that the media refuses to touch subjects such as preventable medical mistakes, which kill over 250,000 people and are the third leading cause of death in the United States.  That is not the ‘truth’.  That must not be talked about.  That is not normal.

Never mind the fact that the media refuses to home in on the fact that the people’s rights to know what’s in their food was eviscerated – again – by Monsanto via the DARK ACT 2.0 and corrupt politicians [read above]

Never mind the fact that the media refuses to gaze at scientific fraud, censorship, intimidation, and even media collusion.

Never mind the fact that the media refuses to address issues, such as the testimony of CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson Ph.D., when he came out stating ‘We scheduled meeting to destroy vaccine-autism study documents’.  That’s not ‘normal’.  Vaccines are always ‘safe’ and ‘effective’.  Right.

Never mind the fact that there are hundreds of references in literature that speak about the many effects of the neurotoxin, Thimersoal, in vaccinations.  Again, that’s not ‘truth’.  We must not speak about it.

Never mind the fact that many doctors [Dr. Kelly Brogan, Dr. Peter Breggin, etc.] have come out showing what sham psychiatry is.  That must not get airtime, because, that’s not the truth.    After all, what kind of world would we have if depression was not a disease, but a symptom, as Dr. Brogan has postulated.

One would figure at least one of those news-worthy events would get plastered all over mainstream media, but such is not the case.   In fact, in the latest case of media censorship, Dr. Kelly Brogan’s book – even though it became a New York Times best seller without any mainstream media press – was blacklisted from mainstream press.  Of course, questioning mainstream narrative must not be done.  They only report on the “truth”.

As we can note, the mainstream media delineates what is, and what isn’t ‘truth’ in our society.  It’s reality reduction to the hilt.

As if that were not enough, the media can be homogenized at any time.

Very salient and troubling examples follow:

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

Please keep in mind, these are only some of the times the media’s been caught.  It’s impossible for us to know how often this takes place, but the fact that these have taken place goes to show the control the media is under for such to take place.  That also goes to explain why the mainstream media almost never reports conflicting information, even though the alternative media has shown how unreliable they are many times.

As you can see, whenever the tune is called, they all follow in lock-step.  It’s extremely worrisome that so many ‘different networks can use the same message.  So much for journalism!

How has this been accomplish?  With the consolidation monopolization of the media.

Jim Marrs, in his notable book Population Control elaborates:

“While the US was once a nation with a great variety of newspapers and periodicals, today virtually everything a person sees or hears is coming from one of only five multinational corporations – the Walt Disney Company, News Corporation, Time-Warner, and Viacom [which now includes CBS] and the German publishing giant Bertelsmann.  These five giants not only control the newspapers but for most of them also radio and television networks, movie studios, magazines, cable and satellite outlets, music companies, and even billboards.”[1][Emphasis Added]

In all fairness, the media is merely a puppet of the establishment.  This has been known for decades.

Nigh a century ago, Edward Bernays spoke succinctly about this in his book Propaganda:

“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 politics or business, in our social 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.”[2]

As we can note, control of mass consciousness is nothing new.  In fact, it’s had decades to be perfected, which is why it’s become so efficient.

And with 5 Corporations calling the shots, how hard could the manipulation Bernays spoke of be to accomplish?

It’s imperative for us individuals to be mindful of this malicious manipulation that’s been happening for many decades now.  If we do not become cognizant of how the media manipulates our thoughts and beliefs, we stand to suffer greatly.

We as individuals need to seek information that’s not only truthful, but empowering.

Such information will allow us to see reality for what it really is, and empower us in the process.

Let’s get back to the initial point.

As we have learned, the media manipulation of reality unleashes brainwashing in certain ways people can’t imagine.  This shows how the power of the media can cast a dark veil on reality. 

Regardless of what the latest mainstream media spin is, follow your instincts.  They’ve led you this far.

The veil of propaganda will cease to have power over us the second we open our eyes and realize our inherent ability to see through the smokescreen.

And the best part about it is that the smokescreen is an illusion, a construct.  Put there by the media to keep us coupled to the reality they dictate on the daily basis.

Ultimately, illusions, once seen for what they truly are, become powerless.

Open your eyes and pierce the veil.

Open your mind and cast light on the darkness.

It’s the only way we’re going to see the reality for what it really is.

Media Manipulation: HLN Cancels Dr. Drew After He Questions Hillary’s Health

Source: RTAmerica
August 29, 2016

Dr. Drew Pinsky’s show was just cancelled by CNN’s sister network, HLN, only days after he questioned her health. It was the second time he did so. The first time, he issued a formal apology. This time, his show was cancelled

MEDIA COLLUSION: CNN Admits “We Couldn’t Help [Hillary] Any More Than We Have”

Source: ZeroHedge.com
August 12, 2016

It appears we have passed the point where hiding the collusion is even necessary…

Here is CNN’s New Day host Chris Cuomo explaining how – for Hillary Clinton – “we [CNN] could not help her any more than we have… she’s got just a free ride so far with the media.”

 

This seemed appropriate…

 

As DailyWire.com writes, it’s no secret that the mainstream media is a giant liberal cesspool willing to do and say anything to make sure their Democrat candidate gets elected. In this case it’s Hillary Clinton. Yet in the midst of two consecutive email scandals, her record of failure, including letting four Americans die in Benghazi, and having the father of the terrorist responsible for the worst attack since 9/11 sitting behind her at a recent rally, all the media can report is, “Hey, look, Trump said something distasteful again!”

In the compilation video (below), the YouTube channel “Centipede Productions” has amassed 10 minutes worth of CNN claiming technical difficulties, shouting down guests, and flat-out cutting the microphone of people who attempt to speak the facts pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s scandal-ridden past and present…

But we are reminded of what Senator Rand Paul exclaimed after discovering Hillary’s collusion with CNN

The liberal media has taken their Clinton sycophancy to a new low. CNN needs to address this bias and lack of journalistic integrity,” Paul’s chief campaign strategist Doug Stafford, said in a statement.

 

“This email revelation should give Republicans pause as to their coverage and possibility of fair treatment towards Sen. Paul during the next debate. All eyes will be on CNN’s response to their employee colluding with Hillary Clinton in order to attack a prominent U.S. senator on their dime.

Of course, it’s not just CNN… It’s AP.. and everyone else at NBC, ABC, and CBS…

Globalists Are Pitting Blacks Against Whites In America To Incite A Race War – Here’s How We Can Win Together By Refusing To Be Manipulated Into Hatred & Rage

Race wars
Source: NaturalNews.com
Mike Adams
July 11, 2016

This isn’t a long article. It’s a short piece put together after three days of contemplation on the insanity and violence that has now exploded across America. The situation is so severe that I haven’t been able to think about much else.

I’m convinced that the events in Dallas were designed to stoke a race war across America, setting the stage for martial law, nationwide gun confiscations and globalist control of the nation. As this Associated Press article explains, it now appears that militant black terrorists are being “directed by militant groups” that control the race war narrative.

That narrative is poison to us all. The purpose of executing five police officers in Dallas is not specifically to kill white people, but to invoke white rage and hatred toward blacks and the Black Lives Matter movement — an emotional tinder box ready to be manipulated by the globalist-controlled media to steer America into a state of open, bloody, civil war.

Civil war does not help anyone except for the globalists. They feed off violence and chaos because it creates the justification for totalitarian government control over society. Obama has already begun this process by demanding that the Dallas Police Department now surrender to federal control. This federalization of local police is a crucial step in the executive takeover of the country by anti-American operatives who have already taken over the White House. Their ultimate goal is to DESTROY America as we know it today; OCCUPY the territory of America; CRIMINALIZE all those who oppose the dictatorial regime in power and DEMAND absolute obedience to globalist rule (which nullifies the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights).

The point of televising acts of extreme violence is to pollute your mind with hatred and vengeance

If we respond to violence with more violence, then the globalist manipulators win. That is their goal: To plant hatred and rage in our minds and hope we act on it to tear each other part in bloody street battles. The more we give in to that hatred and rage, the more the corrupt establishment wins (and even grows its power).

That’s why it is crucial that we must not escalate this violence. If blacks are shooting whites, and then whites respond by executing blacks, we all spiral into open insurrection and deadly chaos. There are no winners in a bloody civil war… only countless victims.

This does not mean we should not seek to arrest and prosecute those who violate the law and participate in such violent acts. Active promoters of violence on the radical left must be brought to justice to halt their continued attempts to spill blood on our streets. Just as important, we as a nation must sharply enhance our respect for law enforcement officers who are the last line of defense between our families and total lawlessness in society.

We must also show far greater respect for local cops

Among cops, a running joke is that “police brutality” is any time a cop wins a fight with a criminal thug who’s trying to kill him. We must remember that police officers deal with the most brutal, violent and mentally ill elements of our society. They work under near impossible conditions and get almost zero recognition for jobs well done. They deserve our thanks, not our condemnation. The Black Lives Matter movement is wrong to condemn all cops for the actions of the few, just as Obama is wrong to condemn all gun owners for the actions of those very few who use them to commit violence.

Any person who thinks cops are bad should imagine trying to survive just 72 hours if all the cops went on a nationwide strike. A whole lot of citizens wouldn’t survive those 72 hours, and they’d be begging for the men and women in blue to return to their jobs and make the streets safer once again. (I’m actually wondering if cops might organize a nationwide 72-hour strike to demonstrate this very point… every major city would collapse into total chaos within hours.)

Black Lives Matter is a globalist-controlled, anti-American HATE group whose purpose is to invoke and instigate racial hatred across America

In refusing to participate in the escalation of violence, it’s also crucial to understand where that violence is coming from. BLM is funded by George Soros and other globalists. Its purpose is to instigate widespread racial hatred while disrupting society from coast to coast. The end game of this agenda is to cause America to collapse into a civil war from which globalists can assert totalitarian control via martial law to “reestablish order.”

The way this will be accomplished is by carrying out race-based executions that are highly visible and extremely bloody, evoking rage and vengeance by those who share the same race or skin color as the victims. Yet this race war will ultimately be waged against people of all colors. Some attacks will target whites. Others will target blacks. Still others may target Latinos. What they all have in common is that they are deliberately planned and carried out to stir up hatred, rage and bloodshed. They are part of an actual conspiracy plot to pit the races of America against each other in the hope that society will collapse into such chaos that nationwide martial law is demanded. (And voila! Suddenly the November elections could be put on hold, too!)

We the People must not allow ourselves to be caught up in this emotional trap. We must recognize these actions for what they are: contrived false flag operations that are carried out for an insidious cultural engineering purpose: to get Americans screaming for martial law and nationwide gun confiscations. That is the end goal of all this, and the globalists don’t care how many innocent people have to die to achieve their goal.

For you and me, our responsibility in all this is to call for peace, calm and solidarity among people of all colors and cultures to denounce the globalists, denounce the criminal occupiers of the White House and denounce those who would try to destroy our constitutional liberties in the name of “security.”

If we stand firm in our awareness of how this is all contrived and manipulated to evoke a public outcry — problem, reaction, solution — then we have a real chance to resist the march toward tyranny that has now been planned for America.

ACTION ITEMS:

1) Do NOT participate in acts of hatred or violence against anyone.

2) REALIZE that nobody wins if our society descends into lawlessness and chaos.

3) Condemn all those who incite violence against the police, and recognize the important role that local cops play in keeping our communities safe from violent elements.

4) TEACH others how the race wars are all designed to control the masses via emotional manipulation.

YOU ARE BEING PLAYED. It is easy to go along with it and ride the wave of anger against those who commit mass murder on our streets. It takes far more mental discipline, however, to see the bigger picture and realize this is really a war being waged by the globalists against ALL people of America, regardless of their race or color.

The globalists win if they can convince whites that blacks are their enemy (and vice-versa). They lose if we wake up and realize it’s actually the globalists who are our common enemy.

How Your Thoughts & Beliefs Are Manipulated By The Media


TheBreakaway
Zy Marquiez
July 8, 2016

We are going to see what happens to a person’s thoughts/beliefs when they are presented with a constant barrage of certain type of information by the mainstream media.

In his groundbreaking book, Thinking, Fast And Slow, Nobel Prize Winner Daniel Kahneman takes a gander at some research conducted by his colleagues Slovic, Lichtenstein, and a former student Fischhoff.

Kahneman goes on to cover the landmark research conducted by the above individuals in relation to “public perceptions of risks, including a survey that has become the standard example of an availability bias.”

Quick side bar.

For clarification purposes, in plain-speak, an availability bias is when individuals are influenced by circumstances/events/ideas that have taken place more recently due to availability – such as a report in the media being widespread and ubiquitous.  This therein skews the actual decision making process of individuals.

Continuing on, Slovic, Lichtenstein & Fischhoff “asked participants in their survey to consider pairs of causes of death: diabetes and asthma, or stroke and accidents.  For each pair, the subjects indicated the more frequent cause and estimated the ratio of the two frequencies. The judgments were compared to health statistics of the time.  Here’s a sample of their findings:

-Stroke cause almost twice as many deaths as all accidents combined, but 80% of respondents judged accidental death to be more likely.
– Tornadoes were seen as more frequent killers than asthma, although the latter cause 20 times more deaths.
-Death by lightning was judged less likely than death from botulism even though it is 52 times more frequent.
-Death by disease is 18 times as likely as accidental death, but the two were judged about equally likely.
-Death by accidents was judged to be more than 300 times more likely than death by diabetes, but the true ratio was 1:4

The lesson is clear: estimates of causes of death are warped by media coverage.  The coverage is itself biased towards novelty and poignancy.”[1][Emphasis Added]

Kahneman carries on:

Unusual events (such as botulism) attack disproportionate attention and are consequently perceived as less unusual than they really are.  The world in our heads is not a precise replica of reality; our expectations about the frequency of events are distorted by the prevalence and emotional intensity of the messages to which we are exposed.” [2][Emphasis Added]

As the cited examples above showcase, people’s reality structure can be overwhelming warped – especially when coupled with fears – by how much coverage a certain subject gets by the mainstream media.

Could that also apply to the disconcerting topic of terrorism?  Quite so.

Since 9/11, terrorism in its many shapes and forms, has become an omnipresent issue throughout society.   Has that that threat of terrorism been overstated?   Let’s find out.

In fact, years ago it was found that ” the leading cause of deaths for Americans traveling abroad is not terrorism, or murder … or even crime of any type.

It’s car crashes.

In fact:

With the exception of the Philippines, more Americans died from road crashes in all of the 160 countries surveyed than from homicides.

The U.S. Department of State reports that only 17 U.S. citizens were killed worldwide as a result of terrorism in 2011. That figure includes deaths in Afghanistan, Iraq and all other theaters of war.

In contrast, the American agency which tracks health-related issues – the U.S. Centers for Disease Control – rounds up the most prevalent causes of death in the United States:

Comparing the CDC numbers to terrorism deaths means (keep in mind that – from here to the end of the piece – we are consistently and substantially understating the risk of other causes of death as compared to terrorism, because we are comparing deaths from various causes within the United States against deaths from terrorism worldwide):

– You are 35,079 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack

– You are 33,842 times more likely to die from cancer than from a terrorist attack

Wikipedia notes that obesity is a a contributing factor in 100,000–400,000 deaths in the United States per year. That makes obesity 5,882 to times 23,528 more likely to kill you than a terrorist.

The annual number of deaths in the U.S. due to avoidable medical errors is as high as 100,000. Indeed, one of the world’s leading medical journals – Lancet – reported in 2011:

A November, 2010, document from the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services reported that, when in hospital, one in seven beneficiaries of Medicare (the government-sponsored health-care programme for those aged 65 years and older) have complications from medical errors, which contribute to about 180 000 deaths of patients per year.

That’s just Medicare beneficiaries, not the entire American public. Scientific American noted in 2009:

Preventable medical mistakes and infections are responsible for about 200,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, according to an investigation by the Hearst media corporation.

And a new study published in the Journal of Patient Safety says the numbers may be up to 440,000 each year.

But let’s use the lower – 100,000 – figure. That still means that you are 5,882 times more likely to die from medical error than terrorism.”[3]

Let’s ask the question again: has the threat of terrorism been overstated?

What do you think?

Given that we have learned that that are many more greater threats to our lively hoods, not only should society not be as fearful regarding terrorism propaganda that the mainstream media exacerbates, but the real problems we should be concerned about like for instance the likelihood of dying from medical mistakesare severely underreported.

This is quite disconcerting given how many people over estimate the quality of health in the united states, even though its nowhere near the top country in health in the world.

What the above information shows is that if the individual is not careful, not only will their view of the world be quite distorted, but the information that they should be looking into will be completely overlooked.

Let this be a word of caution for those who are quick to trust the mainstream media – or any other media for that matter including this one.

Always, always, always verify the information, and make sure not to attach emotion to it.

Sift through it, cross-check, use various sources, and don’t fall for the fear porn.

Be open-minded, but skeptical.

Remember, we’re responsible for what goes in our minds.  Let make sure its quality information.

Television News Illusion: “Reporter In The Field On Location”

TruthLies
Source: NoMoreFakeNews.com
Jon Rappoport
June 21, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

All mainstream television news is built on transitions from one item to another. These transitions are called blends or segues. For example, the anchor in the studio goes to a “reporter on location” where “the news is happening” in real time.

However, in many cases, the anchor in the studio already knows what the reporter on location is going to say. That field reporter could just as easily be sitting in a public bathroom a block away from the studio, for all the good he does. Or he could be sitting in the studio in front of a fake backdrop. It’s a con.

But the sense of transition from one place and person to another imparts the sense of importance. The viewer thinks, “They’re going right to the spot where the shooting occurred an hour ago.” Yes, but the shooting, or whatever actually happened, is over. Or if it’s still in progress, the field reporter is getting his information directly from the police—he could have accomplished that with a phone call from a thousand miles away.

No network news operation allows a reporter in the field to discover something unofficial on his own. That’s verboten. It can get him fired.

So if the reporter on location wanted to tell the truth, he would say, “I’m standing here on a street corner five blocks away from the shooting, and I have nothing new to report. The cops just held a press conference, and they merely said the event was under investigation. I could have told you that while I was in bed back in my apartment. That’s it from here at the moment. I’ll be back with more meaningless updates as they occur. Stay tuned.”

Then the anchor back in the studio would say, “Thanks, Craig. I already knew about the press conference where nothing of substance was mentioned. You added zero to that zero. But you’re there. That’s what’s important. You give the illusion of live presence. We’ll be back after this break. Now we have to sell pharmaceuticals you don’t need. Stay tuned.”

Both the anchor and the reporter in the field earn their paychecks by making the viewing audience feel they’re “transitioning” from one important place (the studio) to another (the street corner). That’s the key. Here one minute, there the next. Most of the time, here and there are as vital as someone posting a video of himself sleeping.

“Now we go to Cairo, where street protests are taking place. Our reporter, Jeff Hassenfeffer, is there. Jeff?”

Cut to close-up of people milling about on a street. They’re yelling, shoving, and running. Jeff is standing in front of them. But who are these people? What are they really doing? Why are they there? What’s the issue? Do the protestors understand it? Are they trying to overthrow the government? If so, would it do any good? Would the new government crack down even harder than the old one? Are all these milling people know-nothings? Are they mere fronts for a new dictator in the shadows?
