The CIA and the Media: Historical Fact #57

Editor’s Note: In August 2015 MHB published, “The CIA and the Media: 50 Historical Facts The World Needs to Know.” The present series seeks to augment this initial article with several dozen additional facts and observations on the relationship between the US intelligence community, the mass media, and public opinion.

Following his successful 1998 campaign to be elected Minnesota’s 38th governor former professional wrestler, media personality and Mayor of Brooklyn Park Minnesota Jesse Ventura explains how he was interrogated at length by over twenty CIA agents seeking to assess the ins and outs of his populist political platform.

“The first inkling that certain people inside the federal government were out to keep an eye on me came not long after I took office,” Ventura recalls.

I was “asked” to attend a meeting in the basement of the Capitol building at a time when the State Legislature was not in session. I was informed that the Central Intelligence Agency was conducting a training exercise that they hoped I’d be willing to participate in … I was placed in the middle of a big circle of chairs, and they all sat there staring at me with notebooks on their laps … They all focused on how we campaigned, how we achieved what we did, and did I think we truly could win when we went into the campaign. Basically, how had the independent wrestler candidate pulled this off?”

“Want To Freak Yourself Out?” Here Is All The Personal Data That Facebook/Google Collect

 By Tyler Durden

The Cambridge Analytica scandal was never really about Cambridge Analytica.

As we’ve pointed out, neither Facebook nor Cambridge Analytica have been accused of doing anything explicitly illegal (though one could be forgiven for believing they had, based on the number of lawsuits and official investigations that have been announced).

Instead, the backlash to these revelations – which has been justifiably focused on Facebook – is so severe because the public has been forced to confront for the first time something that many had previously written off as an immutable certaintyThat Facebook, Google and the rest of the tech behemoths store reams of personal data, essentially logging everything we do.

In 2011, the United States adopted the Strategy for Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States (Strategy) and a corresponding Strategic Implementation Plan. Since publication, the mission to prevent violent extremism has progressed, and violent extremist threats have continued to evolve. The overall goal of the Strategy and United States Government efforts to implement it remains unchanged: to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from inspiring, radicalizing, financing, or recruiting individuals or groups in the United States to commit acts of violence.

ZeroCash: A Cryptocurrency’s Deep State Ties

By James F. Tracy

(Updated 12:25AM October 29)

October 28, 2016 marks the official launch of Zerocash (“Zcash,” “ZEC”), a new cryptocurrency that has received tremendous attention from the Bitcoin community. The technology is named for its zero-zcash-logoidentity function of shielding transactions on its blockchain, or digital ledger. “Zerocash is a new protocol that provides a privacy-preserving version of Bitcoin (or a similar currency),” its developers explain. “[I]n Zerocash, users may pay one another directly, via payment transactions that reveal neither the origin, destination, or amount of the payment.”

A Brush with the Deep State?

[This post was initially submitted as a comment on the article, “Programmed to Kill: Mind Control and Manufactured Terror.“-Ed.]

After hearing Matthew Pauly describe his deep state encounters  on Real Politik and considering how sharing my recent experience Kleinmight be good in a number of ways, I’m going to share my experience in writing for the first time.

First, my name is Peter Klein and I’ve been blogging and producing videos with alternative views for nearly 10 years. I’ve been a guest on Dr. Tracy’s program a couple times (here and here) and co-produced We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook. I currently host the IMS podcast, Fix the Media. So I’m not new to this material and yet I’ve never had any clear form of government harassment or worse occur to me so to speak.

Israel and Facebook Team Up to Imprison Palestinian Children

Social media posts deemed as “incitement to commit violence against Israelis”

Israel has been interrogating and imprisoning dozens of Palestinian minors for months without any legal representation or a parent’s presence.

As Facebook gives the Israeli government more access to posts deemed as “incitement,” occupation forces have been raiding the homes of Palestinians children and detaining them for months over posts on the social media site, a report by the Defense for Children International-Palestine said Monday.

The group spoke with several Palestinian minors who were arrested for their Facebook posts, interrogated for hours and then kept in prison for months without charges under the Israeli policy of “administrative detention.”

All Our Children Are Now FBI Terrorism Suspects

Under Federal Criteria Memory Hole’s “Preoccupation With Press Coverage of Terrorist Attacks” May Constitute “Dangerous Speech”

Thomas S. Neuberger
The Rutherford Institute
(April 7, 2016)

In July 2015, I reported on and analyzed the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism Program and concluded that it made every adult citizen a terrorism suspect. In January 2016, the FBI announced that it wants to make every high school teacher, administrator and student in America a spy to report to it or local State police suspicious words or activity by any FBI-ShadedSealteenager attending our schools. The FBI was not satisfied with its 2012 Communities Against Terrorism Program which asks our neighbors to read any of 25 widely circulated posters and then to report us if we act in certain suspicious ways. Now the FBI has widened its net to over 15 million teenagers in our high schools.

As I explained previously, the dangerous speech which the FBI wanted our neighbors to report included, for example, (1) posting anti-government or environmental slogans, banners, or signs that imply violence; (2) spraying anti-government graffiti; (3) downloading material of an extreme or radical nature with violent themes, or preoccupation with press coverage of terrorist attacks; (4) making unusual anti‑U.S. comments; or (5) making extreme racist or religious statements coupled with sentiments which appear to condone violence. As can be seen from this list of overbroad, vague and legally protected activities or speech which the FBI claims are red flags for terrorism, the FBI has little concern for our Bill of Rights, such as the right to speak freely or to read what we want.[Emphasis added.-Ed.]

Was ‘Project Longevity’ a Gang Stalking Operation?

Less than three weeks before the December 14, 2012 Newtown school shooting, the Obama administration’s Department of Justice and Connecticut state officials introduced “Project Longevity,” a “comprehensive initiative” coordinating federal, state, and local government agencies and non-government personnel to purportedly “reduce gun violence in Connecticut’s major cities … New Haven, Hartford and Bridgeport.” But was the program solely about preventing gun violence, or was it a cover for an intricate gang stalking operation used to set the stage for the Sandy Hook event and intimidate participants and the local citizenry into silence in the aftermath?holder-longevity

Keith Labella Esq. of gangstalkingismurder is our guest on the February 1 Real Politik. Mr. Labella has researched gang stalking for several years and will discuss its history in the US, his personal experience with such harassment, and the wide scale media blackout of the phenomenon.

From Wolfgang Halbig’s Facebook Page:

I need to share with all my Sandy Hook Justice supporters that what happened yesterday to my wife being harrassed at her workplace with her work e-mails and all the people who work for her where also harrassed with their work e-mails which is uncalled for.

My wife loves her job and this has now caused us me to make a decison. I cannot do this by myself begging for donations and then be slammed by these scumbags everyday that I am a FRAUD.

Sofia Smallstorm Maps the Corporatized You

cooper_smallstormIncisive sociopolitical researcher Sofia Smallstorm joins the program to discuss her recent work examining the stealth privatization of individuals, local and regional governments, and the United States itself. She argues that this legal corporatization that has ensued in varying degrees since the late 1800s is a major factor in better understanding recent “mass shooting” drills, some of which are being presented to the public as actual events. In other words, once local municipalities and law enforcement agencies become dependent on federal grants, they are compelled to partake in such exercises to justify continued funding.
