Operation Gladio false flagsBefore embarking on our grim, if yet fascinating, journey it is worth first noting that whilst ‘Gladio’ was officially acknowledged and condemned by the European Parliament (in Nov., 1990; Washington and NATO having ever after refused ‘comment’ on the matter), and its multifarious organs and factions ordered dismantled, it is hardly likely that the latter was ever fully enacted. The historical context of ‘Gladio’, then, is really the quintessential backdrop to understanding the trademark false flag events of the modern era.

On the hot summer morning of Aug. 2, 1980 a massive explosion ripped apart the main waiting room of the Bologna railway station. Eighty-five people were killed and hundreds more injured. Though at first blamed on Italy’s legendary urban guerrillas, The Red Brigades, it soon emerged that the attack had, in fact, originated from within the ‘deep state’ of the Italian government itself. More…

The Facts:
Things just are not quite, as they appear to be. False flag attacks perpetrated by corrupt governments have been documented many times.

Reflect On:
The next time you hear a news flash on the main stream media designed to instill fear and anger, consider who would benefit from this. Remember the lies perpetrated by the deep state against people like Martin Luther King. Read between the lines and make your own decisions where the truth lies.

Disinfo Maginot Line: Protecting EU from ‘Russian Influence’ – by Manufacturing History

media disinformation manipulating publicIt is now apparent with the release of the Mueller investigation findings, that the great storm that has embattled the US government and establishment since 2016 over supposed Russia-Trump collusion during the US elections, originates not from a genuine tangible source, but a constant stream of rhetoric driven by partisan corporate media. One certainty though is the Western narrative of Russia as a ‘malign influence’ will not go away.

While America’s liberal establishment continues to rage at Trump, Europe allies, under the influence of Washington, maintain their aggressive stance towards Russia following the catastrophic US meddling in Ukraine in 2014 and the subsequent reunification of Crimea with Russia. The question is how can the narrative of ‘malign Russian influence’ be kept going? Mainstream media will continue its role in this, but Western governments are also pouring resources into promulgating certain narratives while containing others.

This week, hackers released more documents from the UK government-funded project known as the Integrity Initiative, revealing British government plans to build an umbrella network of organisations across Europe to counter ‘Russian disinformation’. The following is a look at one of the EU projects already operating to ensure European populations do not stray from this constructed narrative that at times crosses over into real xenophobic racism, or Russophobia. While researching this phenomenon, it was impossible not to find some of the EU’s counter-propaganda material quite funny. More…

The Facts:
Governments use the main stream media to disseminate disinformation in order to control narratives that fit their agendas.

Reflect On:
The next time you hear something on the news that suddenly dominates the narrative, consider why this was being done at that particular time and who benefits.

The Media, Mueller, the Big Con and the Democratization of Narrative

The Media, Mueller, the Big Con and the Democratization of Narrative

media manipulationFalling for a con is painful. The first reaction is to deny being conned, of course. The second is to blame skeptics for being correct in their skepticism.

Here’s the fundamental “story” of the Mueller Investigation: elites don’t like “the little people” democratizing public narratives. The elites–who reckon their right to rule is self-evident–want to set the narrative and the context, because that’s the foundation of power: once you get the citizenry to agree on your narrative and context, you secure two valuable things: 1) political legitimacy and 2) their obedience.

Elite anxiety over the “the little people” democratizing narratives is not a new phenomenon. Elites have demanded control of any media outlet that doesn’t parrot their line and have tried to declare skeptical inquiry sedition for generations, stretching back to the founding of the Republic. More…

The Facts:
The lack of any indictments as a result of the Mueller investigation, lays bare the the main stream media attempts of trying to manipulate the people, and their lack of any independent investigation to vet the accuracy of their reporting. This manipulation is similar to the weapons of mass destruction manipulation that was used to justify the Iraq war.

Reflect On:
How were you and the nation affected by this manipulation? Consider how many alternative media outlets have been de-platformed recently. What can you do to discern fact from manipulation in the future?

The Revelations of WikiLeaks: No. 1—The Video that Put Assange in US Crosshairs

The Revelations of WikiLeaks: No. 1—The Video that Put Assange in US Crosshairs
Posted April 28, 2019

collateral murderConsortium News today begins a series of articles, “The Revelations of WikiLeaks,” that will look back on the major works of the publication that have altered the world since its founding in 2006. This series is an effort to counter mainstream media coverage, which is ignoring WikiLeaks’ work, and instead is focusing on Julian Assange’s personality.

It is the uncovering by WikiLeaks of governments’ crimes and corruption that set the U.S. after Assange and which ultimately led to his arrest on April 11. The “Collateral Murder” video was just the first of many major WikiLeaks revelations that made the journalist one of the world’s most wanted men, simply for the act of publishing. More…

The Facts:
“Collateral Murder” created a media sensation in 2010 and led to Chelsea Manning’s imprisonment and to a DOJ investigation of Julian Assange. But the war crimes the video exposed got no one else in trouble.

Reflect On:
What sort of judicial system prosecutes witnesses to a war crime, and ignores those responsible for crime and those who covered up the crime?

Arrest of Julian Assange is an Attack on Journalism, Liberty, Self-Government and Civilization Itself

Arrest of Julian Assange is an Attack on Journalism, Liberty, Self-Government and Civilization Itself

Orwell's 1984 being played out with arrest of AssangeThe reason I’m writing this post and consider it one of the most important things I’ve ever written, is because we can go in two main directions from here as a country. We can accept our degraded and impotent role as meaningless subjects in a vast, corrupt and vicious empire, or we can prioritize freedom, self-government and civil liberties to build a halfway decent civilization. In other words, we can blindly march forward into another dark age, or we can create a new renaissance.

How this will turn out is anyone’s guess, I just know we’re at a crucial crossroads and can only hope these words will inspire some of you to snap out of it, find a little courage and follow your better nature. If not, we will slowly at first, and very quickly later, lose whatever freedoms we have left. More…

The Facts:
Governments always go after the least popular resistors first to condition the public to accept such persecution. They do this because they are the easiest targets without widespread support.

Reflect On:
Imagine what journalism will look like once the chilling effect of publishing information critical of the government has been established? Consider the similarities to news reporting in Orwell’s 1984 book.

The Obvious Dirty Dealings Behind Julian Assange’s Arrest

media smears against Assange part of planThe Economist ran a story on April 12th, the day after Assange was arrested, praising Lenin Moreno’s economic policies, and blaming the previous administration for the “mess” that Moreno has to clear ups. (Of course, the idea that Moreno is handling the economy brilliantly, but somehow also needs over $10 billion dollars in loans is never addressed. A tiny logical contradiction compared with the nonsense the MSM dish-up on a daily basis).

The basic structure of the give-and-take of this situation is fairly obvious.

Less on the nose, but still definitely present, is the slow-burn media-based campaign of defamation and smears directed at Assange. A campaign designed to weaken public support for him and lessen the potential outcry if/when the UK handed him to US authorities, who famously use “enhanced interrogation” on suspects. More…

cheering for your team

This is a huge part of our problem as a nation. Rather than having well defined principles and defending them, we tend to pick personalities we like and then cheer them on as uncritically as our favorite sports teams.
