The Media’s Role in the War on Terror


by Mike Stathis

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.”

Okay, so back to Jones. Many of the methods of mind control practiced by the media utilize primitive psychological tactics.

Based on my analysis, the media seized upon Jones’ intent to burn the Qur’an as a manner by which to fuel more anti-Semitic behavior in America; not against Jews, but against Arabs.

Don’t you find it more than strange that any mention of Jews or Israel in a manner that does not praise them is considered anti-Semitic, yet it’s perfectly acceptable to call Arabs terrorists and other names that degrade their character and not be labeled an anti-Semite?

As the facts demonstrate, a much higher percentage of Arabic people are of Semitic origin than Jews or Israelis.

Moreover, Israel is just as much of a terrorist state (if not more) than its neighbors in the Middle East. For example, consider the events in Gaza, Mossad’s involvement in the World Trade Center Bombings (both on September 11, 2001 and 1993), the bombing of the USS Liberty, and spying activities by several Zionists in Washingtoon, the ADL and many other Jewish organizations.

It is clear to me why Jones was able to gain such widespread media attention. While the media joined politicians in condemning this atrocity, the massive publicity provided to Jones served as a cover for the real objective of the media; to add support for hatred of Muslims.

In addition, the publicity event was designed by the media in order to increase friction between the U.S. and Islam. Massive exposure discussing Jones’ book-burning event increases the chance of acts of terror in the U.S. by radical Islamic youths. Thus, by providing media exposure to Jones, it directly and indirectly adds support in the U.S. to continue war in the Middle East.

The effect is similar to media coverage of say a school shooting which results more school shootings, as nut-jobs are pushed over the edge knowing they will receive widespread media attention, thereby increasing the magnitude and impact of their acts of brutal murder and insanity.  In this case, the media does not air the catastrophe in order to spur more shootings. It should be obvious that reporting these tragic events is to be expected.

But there was absolutely no justification in providing Jones with any media exposure whatsoever. If someone like Joel Osteen were to announce plans to burn the Qur’an, mass media exposure might be justified due to millions who follow and support him. But remember, Jones’ church had only 50 members.

Recall that several months earlier, plans to erect a Mosque near ground zero began receiving a huge amount of media coverage. This also had a hidden agenda. Think about it for a minute. If you were an Islamic leader, and if Islamic terrorists were in fact responsible for the attacks on 9-11, why would you add to the fire with plans to erect a Mosque near Ground Zero? It simply makes no sense if you care about your people.

By moving forward with this development, Americans become even more outraged at the irony of the situation, given that most Americans have been fooled to think that Osama bin Laden and other Muslims carried out the attacks on the World Trade Center.  In effect, it helps galvanize the belief that radical Islam was responsible for the attacks on 9-11. It’s a perfect case of complete manipulation of the American people.

Once Washington sends the official story line to the media to broadcast to the people, any alternative ideas offered are always labeled as conspiracies. Others are labeled as quacks, racists, bigots or anti-Semites. Instead of addressing the issues, the media is quick to defame individuals who present viewpoints counter to those supplied to the media by Washington. This tactic has become stale and ineffective.

I have my own ideas about the genesis of the proposed Mosque. In my opinion, one or more individuals who have been disguised as Muslims spearheaded these plans as a manner by which to stir more outrage from the American public. Doing so adds strength to the false sentiment that Muslims were behind this attack, despite inadequate evidence. Think of it as a smoke screen. I’m not going on record stating that this is a fact because I don’t have the evidence. I’m going by logic. Whatever the case may be, there’s something very fishy about the deal. 

We see similar smoke screens that have been propagated by neocon media personalities, so as claims of Obama being a Muslim. Let me be clear. This claim has been disseminated in order to diminish or refute any criticism that Obama is in fact controlled by Zionist Jews.

While Obama might be a Muslim in theory, all that matters are his actions. If we examine Obama’s most trusted advisers, we do not see a single Muslim or even Christian Arab. If we examine the heads of the most important government agencies, we do not see any Muslims. We only see Zionist Jews.

If we examine Obama’s advisers on Middle East policy, we see not one single Muslim or Christian Arab. We only see Zionist Jews and other Zionists. You might recall the fact that George Bush included only Zionist Jews to on his Middle East advisory committee. This is by no coincidence. Regardless, who is in the White House, regardless what they say in front of the camera, one thing is for certain. America is being run by Zionist Jews, as it has been for decades. And the U.S. continues to spend trillions of dollars to fight wars to advance Israel’s directives at the expense of weakening America’s international standing and economy.

But alas, the plot thickens. It would appear that Jones actually identified Jews as a threat to Christianity, and had previously announced that he planned to also burn copies of the Talmud along with the Qur’an during aninterview with the Ugly Truth.

During the interview, “when (Jones) was pressed to describe the real groups, persons and agendas behind the de-Christianizing of America and the subversion of her moral, political and cultural moorings, he admitted that the extremists directing the controlled demolition of American society were not Islamic in character, but rather Jewish.”

After being contacted by several journalists about his intentions to burn the Talmud, Jones allegedly announced that he had changed his mind.

It is clear to me that if Mr. Jones was planning to burn the Talmud in protest to the attacks on 9-11, he would surely be labeled a terrorist group by the FBI and CIA, because of course, these agencies are largely under the control of the Zionist Jewish mafia.

While Jones decided not to move forward with his book-burning event, at that point it really didn’t matter because the media had already accomplished its objective.

Without any surprise, shortly after Jones’ book-burning promotion, rumors began to circulate that he was arrested for possession of child pornography. It’s gotten to the point that whenever someone is accused of passion of child pornography, there appears to be a set up by government officials as a way to discredit the individual.

Although I have not spent sufficient time researching whether or not he was in fact arrested for passion of child pornography, I find it odd that the story from NBC cannot be accessed. Perhaps it was retracted after it was proven to be false. Given how irresponsible the media is, I wouldn’t be surprised if in fact this was the case.

People should never allow the media determine what is or is not true because the media is merely a tool for manipulation and financial gain. The only way to find out the truth is to research things with an open mind. Of course, most people simply do not have the time required to research things for themselves. But everyone should make the time to research the big things, like 9-11.

Others may not have adequate experience analyzing things to the extent they are able to exercise good judgment. For those who fall into this category, I would suggest that you identify one or more individuals who have demonstrated a track record of credibility with no agendas. This is a very difficult task requiring extensive research in itself. In the end, on any given day, you are not likely to locate a source that is 100% correct about everything.  This points to the problem of understanding to what extent to utilize each of your sources.

Be careful, because there are countless frauds out there. The more you understand what is going on around you, the more easily you will be able to spot the frauds.

During his massive PR exposure, the media made reference on many occasions to a book written by Jones. I am quite certain that many Americans bought his book

because they have been programmed to act on impulse, feeling the need to be fed more BS by media celebrities. Others bought the book it in support of his misguided hatred towards Muslims. Any way you look at it, Jones profited from the event without ever even burning the Qur’an.

Jones’ immediate and unwarranted rise to fame last year is similar to that enjoyed by Octomom, Paris Hilton, Joe the Plumber and countless others who have been publicized by the media. Octomom got an endorsement deal from PETA. Paris Hilton made millions for doing nothing. And Joe the Plumber got a book deal. But the big winner in each case has always been the media and the agendas they have been paid to represent.

Interestingly, Jones recently announced that he planned to burn the Qur’an. Last month, according to reports, this time he went through with his promise perhaps as an attempt to replicate the media exposure he received the previous year.

Welcome to America’s manipulative media monopoly, rewarding liars, crooks and hacks with massive publicity in order to execute its agendas, while censoring unbiased experts seeking to communicate the truth.
