The media continues to utilize countless tactics designed to heighten public perception regarding the critical need to advance America’s war on terror. We see this on a daily basis. Often, the media states bold-faced lies regarding so-called terrorist activities, so as to enrage Americans. Other times the media stages complete fabrications of events so as to twist reality in order to advance the agenda of Washington. Many alert, independent-minded Americans; a group representing a dying breed – are aware of this. Others suspect it.
There are many other less conscious methods used by the media to achieve its directives, as dictated by Washington. Here, I show you some examples.
Previously I discussed how the media used bin Laden’s porn collection as a way to expand the myth that bin Laden was responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Centers. It’s a simple tactic. The more details one hears about someone alleged to have committed a crime, the more they associate the person with the crime despite evidence to the contrary.
Last year, you might remember plans by a tiny Church in Florida to burn the Qur’an on the ninth anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks. The man in charge of this ridiculous spectacle, Reverend Terry Jones received massive media exposure from America’s media monopoly.
Now I want you to pause for a minute and ask yourself the following question.
Didn’t it seem strange how such a small group was able to obtain instant worldwide media exposure?
After all, the church only had about 50 members.
And it wasn’t as if Jones had much credibility either. For instance, although Jones refers to himself as a reverend or pastor, he offered no evidence that he has been
ordained by any legitimate religious group. I suppose religious freedom allows anyone to form their own church and call oneself a reverend.
Moreover, Jones calls himself a “Dr.,” claiming he has a Ph.D in Theology from the California Graduate School of Theology. However, the college stated Jones has never attended a single course there.
Even his daughter had (allegedly) gone on record claiming that she left his church because she viewed it as a cult, with a profit incentive more than anything else.
Finally, the State of Florida discovered Jones was running his online furniture store on church property, which is illegal since the church claims a tax-exempt status.
Given these facts about Jones, doesn’t it seem odd how the media flocked to him as if he were Osama bin Laden?
Thus, it becomes important to ascertain whether the media even conducts a reasonable amount of due diligence prior to interviewing individuals. As you might imagine, the media has no interest in the credibility of its sources. The media only cares to carry out the agendas of its masters; Washington and corporate America.
In summary, Jones has no significant following, no credibility, a shady past, has used tax-exempt status illegally, his own daughter even abandoned his church, and has been alleged to have stolen funds from his previous church for his own personal use.
I’m willing to bet that Jones has never even read the Qur’an.
So why would the media waste time on this man?
Perhaps a better question is this. What could possibly be gained by the media highlighting this man and his plans to burn the Qur’an?
Certain individuals, regardless how trivial, ignorant, insane or criminal are provided with mass media exposure for a very good reason. Sometimes they are used as objects to create drama so as to attract an audience which that can sell commercials to. Other times they are used as tools to control your mind.
The media has two main objectives. The first is obvious. Because the media receives the vast majority of revenues from commercials, ads and other forms of sponsorships, clearly the media always seeks to generate drama in order to attract a large audience. This objective leverages the media’s strong relationships with corporate America.
The second main objective of the media is to manipulate public discourse. This objective leverages the media’s strong relationships with Washington DC.
This begs the question; was Jones used by the media to create drama as a way to sell commercials; or as a stool pigeon in order to manipulate public thought?
The answer is both. However, in this instance, I feel that the Washington relationship took precedence. After all, don’t you find it strange that Attorney General Eric Holder, General Petraeus, and several other high-level Washington officials responded to Jones’ planned Qur’an-burning event?
Remember, Jones has a following of only 50 people. So why would high-level officials spend even of minute of their time on this circus show?
Don’t you think that if Washington viewed the mass media exposure provided to Jones as some type of threat (as Petraeus claimed) they could easily get the media crime bosses to pull the plug on Jones?
Of course they could.
The situation is similar to Wikileaks, an obvious PSYOP.
I haven’t said much about Wikileaks in the past because once I spot a fraud, I announce it and move on. Here is an excerpt from an article I wrote in 2010…
“WikiLeaks is trying to establish credibility by supplying the public with basically useless information positioned as closely guarded secrets. However, nothing released by WikiLeaks has been valuable or insightful.
This is a pretty standard tactic used to lure sheep. Here is how it works. First, you establish credibility by revealing something that has been positioned as “insider information” or by making a case for something by presenting verifiable facts. Thereafter, the individual expands upon previously verified information and either twists the truth to fit his agendas, or else makes up things. This usually works because the followers have drunk so much of the Kool-Aid, they have become sheep willing to believe anything from their highly trusted source.
It’s quite funny to see that WikiLeaks has already fooled many hackers who actually think WikiLeaks is on their side. This is how you get people to do your dirty work. The Republican Party also did the same thing to the Tea Party.
First, consider that if WikiLeaks truly released important information that threatened anything, the media would stay away from it. Instead, the media has been all over it. Don’t you find that odd? Don’t forget that the media first and foremost would never do anything to jeopardize Washington secrets. This is why 9-11 was covered up and this is why CIA agents are working as journalists and executives in various media firms throughout the U.S. and perhaps much of the developed world. I’d like to remind you of Operation Mockingbird.
Second, just look at what WikiLeaks has released. It’s been noise; nothing insightful. However, with the help of the media, the material released has been positioned as critical. Washington has played its role as well, stating how damaging the material could be.
Third, in its most recent release, WikiLeaks claimed that it would be releasing documents about Bank of America. Okay so what? We already know about the scam operations involved with BAC, MER and CountryWide. These documents will most likely dramatize what we already know. Ask yourself why WikiLeaks isn’t going after the big fraud by banks like Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. I’ll tell you why. Because the idea is to create the perception that WikiLeaks is uncovering valuable information. The idea is NOT to actually uncover valuable information.
Now I don’t know for certain who is behind WikiLeaks, but I will guarantee you it’s not Julian Assange. If it’s not individuals connected to Washington, then my guess is that it’s Zionists or individuals like Soros.”
