How the truth sets you free: my personal journey through the Pentagon’s propaganda swamp

Though rejecting the propaganda image, the US media and the Pentagon seek to impose can be traumatic, it is more moral and more rational to live in the real world than in the one created by propaganda illusions.

To get the people of any country to act in a prescribed manner, requires specific information to be released via the mass media and Government Heads.

This information is designed to trigger emotional responses which will motivate people to act or react in a predetermined and desired way.

The reason the Pentagon employs a Psyops Department is precisely for this reason. They use clever psychological techniques to control and steer the populace to a predetermined destination.

As individuals human beings are magnificent in ways.  However in their mass they can be manipulated and steered like a herd of Wildebeest. Or at least that’s the theory.

The method the Pentagon uses is insidiously clever.  One wonders if so many people have been under such mass psychological bombardment as we are today?

The US and its allies say they are fighting a war against Terror in Syria and Iraq, and up to this point they have spent $9.3 billion in just the air campaign alone.

They say they are fighting the good fight against the radical beheading Islamic Terrorists called ISIS. Although the fight is a long and difficult one, they say they will not waver and will beat them in the end.

They head a coalition of 65 nations.

They refuse to ally themselves with Bashar Al Assad, the Syrian Army or, with the Russian Air Force who have come to Assad’s assistance because they say Assad is a criminal who is ruthlessly terrorising his own people by dropping barrel bombs on them and, they say, the Russian barbarians are helping him.

The above is the script the Pentagon Psyops Officers have written for their Western ‘Patients’.

This is the pill you have been taking every hour on the hour from every Western media outlet and from every ‘Government talking head’ you’ve bothered to watch for the past 6 years.

But a lie becomes ever harder to conceal over time and the insidious facade created over the last 6 years concerning Syria is slowly breaking down piece by piece. 

This however is very dangerous.

Why is it dangerous?   It is dangerous because,rather than being found out lying to their own citizens the perpetrators of the lie are more likely to escalate and take us all to war.

But rather than trying to foresee what the US/NATO machine might do next in Syria I want to explain what the individual experiences when they are exposed to the lies of the propaganda and starts to understand how they are being manipulated by these psychological techniques.

It is initially hard to accept the pure and logical truth when you have been swallowing the propaganda pill for some time.

At the time of discovery it is difficult to believe you have fallen for a lie and have been doing so moreover for so long.  However because you have believed the lie you now find you have to readjust and change your worldview in so many areas.  This is hard.

Simplistically, the good guys turn out to be the bad guys and the bad guys are really the good guys.

That dilemma creates many many moral and intellectual disparities for a thinking person to work through.

Some people, even after discovering the truth, find it much easier to go on accepting the lie because it fits their mental and moral paradigm which has been carefully constructed over the previous years.

Take for example an RT article which has recently appeared

A German undercover journalist enrolled as an intern at the RT Deutsch studio to spy on “Putin’s propaganda broadcaster,” but things didn’t exactly go as planned. After just two days, the man began to question the mainstream media bias – and his own worldview.”

This German journalist discovered the very “lie” that has been prescribed for us in the West. The mental collision he experienced drove him to visit a psychologist to try and work through his issues.

He eventually chose to believe the lie because it saved him the pain of having to reconstruct his worldview.  For him maybe it was easier to go on believing the lie and have others do the thinking for him?

This type of intellectual collision is similar to a religious awakening in that if a convert who accept a truth opposed to his or her previous existence has to change everything – opinions, friends,  interests  – and then admit error.

Accepting a new paradigm is very difficult since it may affect longstanding and treasured relationships with family and friends.  In the case of a journalist it may affect career prospects.

So coming to the knowledge of the truth of a situation is not an easy thing for many people.

However for some, it may come as a refreshing breeze because they never really embraced the lie in the first place. 

Let us look at the example of the promotion of the Syrian White Helmets.

Their promotional photos and videos of rescuing babies from the ‘Syrian and Russian bombed rubble’ is designed to tap empathy which triggers emotionally defined decisions however, based on incorrect information.

The Netflix documentary on The White Helmets is designed to do just this.  Emotions are triggered and the viewer has arrived at a “predetermined and prescribed decision” designed by the psychological warfare experts.

The emotional reaction leads to support for the White Helmets and directly to opposition to the Syrian and Russian offensive.

It is a natural condition to think this way after seeing human beings suffer.  However the photos and videos are mostly contrived.  The White Helmets have definitely been proven to be a construct of the US/NATO machine specifically designed to elicit precisely these very human responses.

So decisions are made based on a worldview constructed from lies.

I have experienced all of these intellectual and emotional attacks personally.

In 2014 I discovered the truth of what had actually transpired during the coup in Ukraine and the subsequent uprisings in the east of that country.

I went through all the shocks I have described. My family and friends thought I’d become a communist – such was their ignorance of the Russian Federation. They looked at me with shock and then started to defend the propaganda they’d been fed even though they knew little or nothing about Ukraine – the country that was the whole subject!  Still, I’m looked upon with suspicion.

Then, to compound matters, I was exposed to the truth of what’s really happening in Syria and, although the situation there is very complicated, I experienced a further mental cleansing.

It can be hard because the propaganda is so effective, and it can be challenging personally.  However I hunger for the truth even if understanding what’s really happening means being misunderstood and running in the opposite directions to the herd.

The truth is, that innocent people are being slaughtered and our Western governments are complicit and are facilitating these slaughters.

We have a responsibility to do whatever we can to stop the lies and to expose the guilty in any way we can.

We should explore both sides of the Syrian war and refuse to believe blanket attacks without evidence because so many accusations are being made yet no evidence is ever presented.

Guard your minds and your hearts because they are being attacked. 

You are being led away from where you would naturally choose to be if you had the information our forefathers fought for you to have.

EU leaders dictate Brexit terms to Theresa May (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 115.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how EU leaders have agreed on a plan to delay the the Article 50 process which effectively postpones Brexit beyond the 29 March deadline.

The UK will now be offered a delay until the 22nd of May, only if MPs approve Theresa May’s withdrawal deal next week. If MPs do not approve May’s negotiated deal, then the EU will support a short delay until the 12th of April, allowing the UK extra time to get the deal passed or to “indicate a way forward”.

UK PM Theresa May said there was now a “clear choice” facing MPs, who could vote for a third time on her deal next week.

Theresa May outlines four Brexit options, via Politico

In a letter to MPs, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May set out the four options she believes the country has in light of Thursday’s decision by EU leaders to extend the Brexit deadline beyond next Friday.

The U.K. is faced with a four-way choice, May wrote late Friday.

The government could revoke Article 50 — which May called a betrayal of the Brexit vote; leave without a deal on April 12; pass her deal in a vote next week; or, “if it appears that there is not sufficient support” for a vote on her deal in parliament next week or if it is rejected for a third time, she could ask for an extension beyond April 12.

But this would require for the U.K. taking part in European elections in May, which the prime minister said “would be wrong.”

May wrote that she’s hoping for the deal to pass, allowing the U.K. to leave the EU “in an orderly way,” adding “I still believe there is a majority in the House for that course of action.”

“I hope we can all agree that we are now at the moment of decision,” she wrote.

US media suffers panic attack after Mueller fails to deliver on much-anticipated Trump indictment

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

RT

Important pundits and news networks have served up an impressive display of denials, evasions and on-air strokes after learning that Robert Mueller has ended his probe without issuing a single collusion-related indictment.

The Special Counsel delivered his final report to Attorney General William Barr for review on Friday, with the Justice Department confirming that there will be no further indictments related to the probe. The news dealt a devastating blow to the sensational prophesies of journalists, analysts and entire news networks, who for nearly two years reported ad nauseam that President Donald Trump and his inner circle were just days away from being carted off to prison for conspiring with the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Showing true integrity, journalists and television anchors took to Twitter and the airwaves on Friday night to acknowledge that the media severely misreported Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, as well as what Mueller’s probe was likely to find. They are, after all, true professionals.

“How could they let Trump off the hook?” an inconsolable Chris Matthews asked NBC reporter Ken Dilanian during a segment on CNN’s ‘Hardball’.

Dilanian tried to comfort the CNN host with some of his signature NBC punditry.

“My only conclusion is that the president transmitted to Mueller that he would take the Fifth. He would never talk to him and therefore, Mueller decided it wasn’t worth the subpoena fight,” he expertly mused.

Actually, there were several Serious Journalists who used their unsurpassed analytical abilities to conjure up a reason why Mueller didn’t throw the book at Trump, even though the president is clearly a Putin puppet.

“It’s certainly possible that Trump may emerge from this better than many anticipated. However! Consensus has been that Mueller would follow DOJ rules and not indict a sitting president. I.e. it’s also possible his report could be very bad for Trump, despite ‘no more indictments,'” concluded Mark Follman, national affairs editor at Mother Jones, who presumably, and very sadly, was not being facetious.

Revered news organs were quick to artfully modify their expectations regarding Mueller’s findings.

“What is collusion and why is Robert Mueller unlikely to mention it in his report on Trump and Russia?” a Newsweek headline asked following Friday’s tragic announcement.

Three months earlier, Newsweek had meticulously documented all the terrible “collusion” committed by Donald Trump and his inner circle.

But perhaps the most sobering reactions to the no-indictment news came from those who seemed completely unfazed by the fact that Mueller’s investigation, aimed at uncovering a criminal conspiracy between Trump and the Kremlin, ended without digging up a single case of “collusion.”

The denials, evasions and bizarre hot takes are made even more poignant by the fact that just days ago, there was still serious talk about Trump’s entire family being hauled off to prison.

“You can’t blame MSNBC viewers for being confused. They largely kept dissenters from their Trump/Russia spy tale off the air for 2 years. As recently as 2 weeks ago, they had @JohnBrennan strongly suggesting Mueller would indict Trump family members on collusion as his last act,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.

While the Mueller report has yet to be released to the public, the lack of indictments makes it clear that whatever was found, nothing came close to the vast criminal conspiracy alleged by virtually the entire American media establishment.

“You have been lied to for 2 years by the MSM. No Russian collusion by Trump or anyone else. Who lied? Head of the CIA, NSA,FBI,DOJ, every pundit every anchor. All lies,” wrote conservative activist Chuck Woolery.

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom was more blunt, but said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

Canadian Lawmaker Accuses Trudeau Of Being A “Fake Feminist” (Video)

Rempel segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career

Published

Via Zerohedge

Canada’s feminist-in-chief Justin Trudeau wants to support and empower women…but his support stops at the point where said women start creating problems for his political agenda.

That was the criticism levied against the prime minister on Friday by a conservative lawmaker, who took the PM to task for “muzzling strong, principled women” during a debate in the House of Commons.

“He asked for strong women, and this is what they look like!” said conservative MP Michelle Rempel, referring to the former justice minister and attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould, who has accused Trudeau and his cronies of pushing her out of the cabinet after she refused to grant a deferred prosecution agreement to a Quebec-based engineering firm.

She then accused Trudeau of being a “fake feminist”.

“That’s not what a feminist looks like…Every day that he refuses to allow the attorney general to testify and tell her story is another day he’s a fake feminist!”

Trudeau was so taken aback by Rempel’s tirade, that he apparently forgot which language he should respond in.

But Rempel wasn’t finished. She then segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career. This from a man who once objected to the continued use of the word “mankind” (suggesting we use “peoplekind” instead).

The conservative opposition then tried to summon Wilson-Raybould to appear before the Commons for another hearing (during her last appearance, she shared her account of how the PM and employees in the PM’s office and privy council barraged her with demands that she quash the government’s pursuit of SNC-Lavalin over charges that the firm bribed Libyan government officials). Wilson-Raybould left the Trudeau cabinet after she was abruptly moved to a different ministerial post – a move that was widely seen as a demotion.

Trudeau has acknowledged that he put in a good word on the firm’s behalf with Wilson-Raybould, but insists that he always maintained the final decision on the case was hers and hers alone.

Fortunately for Canadians who agree with Rempel, it’s very possible that Trudeau – who has so far resisted calls to resign – won’t be in power much longer, as the scandal has cost Trudeau’s liberals the lead in the polls for the October election.
