Endless Propaganda Fuels “War on Terror”
By James F. Tracy
In the wake of World War I, erstwhile propagandist and political scientist Harold Lasswell famously defined propaganda as “the management of collective attitudes” and the “control over opinion” through “the manipulation of significant symbols.” The extent to which this tradition is enthusiastically upheld in the West and the United States in particular is remarkable. The American public is consistently propagandized by its government and corporate news media on the most vital of contemporary issues and events. Deception on such a scale would be of little consequence if the US was not the most powerful economic and military force on earth.

A case in point is the hysteria Western news media are attempting to create concerning the threat posed by the mercenary-terrorist army now being promoted as the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria, or “ISIS.”
As was the case with the US intelligence asset and bogey publicized as “Al Qaeda,” and Al Qaeda’s Syrian adjunct, “Al Nusra,” such entities are—apparently by design—inadequately investigated and defined by major news media. Absent meaningful historical context they usefully serve as another raison d’ểtre for America’s terminal “War on Terror.”
A seemingly obvious feature of such terrorist forces left unexamined by corporate media is that they are observably comprised of the same or comparable personnel unleashed elsewhere throughout the Middle East as part of a strategy proposed during the George W. Bush administration in 2007.
With the above observations in mind, ISIS is well-financed, militarily proficient, and equipped with modern vehicles and weaponry. It also exhibits an uncanny degree of media savvy in terms of propagating its message in professional-looking videos and on platforms such as YouTube and Twitter. “Western intelligence services,” the New York Times reports, claim to be “worried about their extraordinary command of seemingly less lethal weapons: state-of-the-art videos, ground images shot from drones, and multilingual Twitter messages.”
Along these lines, ISIS even received a largely sympathetic portrayal in a five-part series produced and aired by the Rupert Murdoch-backed Vice News. Indeed, Vice News’ “The Spread of the Caliphate” is reminiscent of the public relations-style reportage produced via the “embedding” of corporate news media personnel with US and allied forces during the 2003 conquest of Iraq.
The overt support of ISIS, combined with the fact that it is battling the same Syrian government the Obama administration overtly sought to wage war against just one year ago, strongly suggest the organization’s sponsorship by Western intelligence and military interests.
ISIS’s curious features are readily apparent to non-Western news outlets and citizenries. For example, Iran’s PressTV recently asked its readership, “Why does the ISIL have such easy access to Twitter, Youtube and other social media to propagate its ideologies?” The answer choices are, “1) Because the ISIL has very capable technicians who can best use social media, or 2) Because the US and Britain have provided the ISIL with unrestricted social media platform[s].” Note that the first choice is the overarching assumption of Western media outlets. Yet perhaps unsurprisingly, 90 percent of PressTV readers selected choice two.
No such queries are so much as alluded to by major corporate media, all of which are united in the notion that ISIS is an essentially indigenous phenomenon. Yet as coverage of the events of September 11, 2001 and subsequent state-sponsored terrorism indicates, such media are essentially a component of the national security state, their reports and broadcast scripts all but overtly written by intelligence and military organizations.
In the wake of 9/11 US news media seldom asked about the origins of Al Qaeda—particularly how it was a product of US intelligence agencies. With the history of Al Qaeda omitted, the Bush administration was permitted to wage war on Afghanistan almost immediately following those staged attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Yet as is much the case with today’s manufactured ISIS phenomenon, that history was readily available, and its careful public examination might have implicated the United States intelligence community in the 9/11 attacks. “During the Cold War, but also in its aftermath,” Michel Chossudovsky observes,
the CIA—using Pakistan’s military intelligence apparatus as a “go between”—played a key role in training the Mujhadeen. In turn, the CIA-sponsored guerrilla training was integrated with the teachings of Islam. Both the Clinton and Bush administrations have consistently supported the “Militant Islamic Base”, including Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda, as part of their foreign policy agenda. The links between Osama bin Laden and the Clinton administration in Bosnia and Kosovo are well documented by congressional records.
As the United States and world approach the thirteenth anniversary of the most momentous false flag in modern history, the American public would be well-served to remind itself that ISIS is the new Al Qaeda—in other words, the new pretext that will in all likelihood be used to take police state measures at home and military aggression abroad to new, perhaps unprecedented, levels.
With the above in mind, it is telling that one of the US government’s greatest fears isn’t ISIS at all. “The FBI’s most recent threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats,” the Washington Free Beacon reports, “despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.”
Instead, the nation’s foremost law enforcement agency is preoccupied with what it deems “domestic extremism” exhibited by its own subjects. A primary manifestation of such “extremism” is possessing the curiosity to discern and seek out truths and information amidst the barrage of manipulated symbols the government and corporate-controlled media use to undermine a potentially informed public.

Comments have been disallowed on this article upon its posting several hours ago. My apologies to potential MHB comment participants for this oversight.
The propaganda has been getting so absurd I expect the next “terror” attack to be blamed on radical Muslims that hate us for our freedoms that are also members of the TEA party and Ron Paul supporters.
EXCLUSIVE: ISIS Sotloff Beheading Video “Published by Accident”
ISIS apologizes for releasing video before editing and special effects could added. See, and you guys thought they were just mean spirited terrorists like the old Al-qaeda.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Can you beleive it?
Now, 11 Jumbo Air Planes are missing from Libyan Airport. And of course our MSM is reporting they fly them over here and crash in buildings.
Really? Impossible unless they get some help..wink wink
Operation Gladio on crack…..
We will know when they are coming. Isis always does a couple of donuts on the taxiway before takeoff. Its a dead give away.
Haha and the last you will hear Jihadi Rap music blasting out the windows they fly over your city.
Doing donuts in a Tank..priceless
Ric, I understand that the “early release” is due to the fact that the video came from Rita Katz over at the “SITE” hasbara operation. She is the one responsible for the fake Osama tapes.
Soon we’ll have “Adam Kadahn (aka Pearlman) waving a black flag. This is an exercise in stupid.
Saudi Arabia and the CIA have a history of “weaponizing” Islam, turning it into more of a “gunpowder plot” (and an occasion for transnational brigandage) than a religion: they openly and irrefutably did it in Afghanistan; the “missing” 28 pages of the 9/11 Joint Congressional Inquiry hint at a recurrence of this weaponization, this time of course daringly directed against the American polity itself for twisted reasons of empire; with ISIS likely being more of the same, but graphically escalated, gorier, more intense, as would be expected of any self-respecting Hollywood-Pentagon “weaponized,” “realer than real” propaganda production.
Addendum: Does anyone seriously believe Western governments are trembling from the threats of mentally deranged people–made so likely as a consequence of brainwashing? This whole phenomenon of Western jihadists eager to murder is one principally for the public health services as no sane person would dream of becoming a direct participant in gory mass murder; the fact that such governments do not describe these phenomena in the aforementioned terms strongly suggests willful credulity in irrational threats for the sake of continued control and manipulation of their populations through fear, through the tactics of bottom of the barrel scare- and warmongering.
OK–well, I see [what] they’re up now. This is your [most] important post yet, Dr. Tracy. You have put your finger on it: one of the biggest giveaways of “spook” involvement in these waves of new, ever more threatening groups coming on the scene has to be their “uncanny degree of media savvy.” Heck, aren’t these illiterate nomads?
And yes, who in the mainstream press is even asking these questions? We wait in vain. ISIS’s mastery of technology obviously could only be accomplished if it had a highly tech-savvy sponsor (with unlimited resources) behind it.
Was curious on why our leader calls them ISIL and most other outlets called them ISIS – the Islamic state of Iraq and Syria.
While it is always ridiculous to reference wiki for true information, it does give us insight to the current propaganda.
It sounds kind of not threatening to have terrorists in Iraq & Syria, they are always killing each other over there, aren’t they?
“On 14 May 2014, the United States Department of State announced its decision to use “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL) as the group’s primary name.”
Levant, as near as I can decipher, once meant the Middle East but today could be interpreted to mean anywhere Muslims are.
How curious is it, that this terrorist organization “Since 2012, ISIS has produced annual reports giving numerical information on its operations, somewhat in the style of corporate reports, seemingly in a bid to encourage potential donors.”
Looks like they did some branding research and ISIS beat our ISIL, 51% to 49% 🙂
The problem with false flags — which this is in some sense — is that once people catch on and see the patterns, they become less useful with progressively shorter half-lives.
On the scale of things, Fukushima’s poisoning of the oceans and perhaps the current Ebola outbreak are much more dangerous to the populace than a bunch of propped up extremists with twitter accounts.
Memo to ALL MSM outlets from CIA headquarters:
Osama Bin Laden is now : Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
Al-Qaeda is now : ISIS.
Always substitute the old boogy men with the NEW and improved boogey men. Stick with the same old premise they’re hiding under your beds and in your closets. It has worked for 13 years.
We know Baghdadi may sound stupid to anyone with a brain but we were in a hurry and came up with that one one the fly.
We don’t believe any Americans will realize we just added an “i” to Baghdad(i),
Keep Up the good work!
All Alphabet Agencies
PS: Never let the people know more people die of Bee Stings than terrorist attacks!
Thats “Israeli Secret Intelligence Service”.
HuffPo’s predictable sermon, which attempts to separate US/EU involvement in ISIL and Ukraine when in fact engaging in the first theater is probably mostly an excuse to control the second:
Reblogged this on undergroundinsights and commented:
We’ve always been at war with al qaeda. We’ve never been at war with al qaeda.
I don’t think dark skinned Muslims make as good a domestic Enemy as they do a foreign Enemy. It’s true that the FBI has managed to provoke a few of the more weak minded in supporting projected atrocities. But Americans don’t like to think of Muslims as being Americans, or Real Americans, and this gets in the way of an emotional scapegoating.
The FBI have traditionally focused on African Americans as the True subversives, conforming to both the covert racism of Progressives, and gutter racism of Conservatives. Targeting African Americans fits in better with Washington’s Divide and Ruin strategy than does targeting domestic Muslims, although of course both can be demonized. But, for example, Memory Hole commenters appear to focus more on African Americans than they do on Muslims, and this is true of the Infowar commenters as well.
This may be the reason that the Ferguson racial crisis was, at least partially, staged. In the last forty years the productivity of workers have doubled, but the average wages have actually declined, the oligarchs grabbing the surplus. As the general population is impoverished, the uprising will likely increase, and these will have a racial dimension, since non-Whites are oppressed more.
Therefore it is necessary to divide Blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, and other non-White groupings from each other and from White workers. Especially as American is becoming non-White, the majority of students in the schools are reported to be non-White for the first time in 2014. African Americans have been the traditional scapegoats under segregation, involving the whole population to enforce it. A small fraction of the African American professional-managerial class can be Integrated, and they will sell out the general Black population as will as divide them from other oppressed minorities.
This fits in better with the Nazi-Oligarch state the US is establishing in Ukraine. Consider the sentiments of the leader of the Azov Battalion to his men:
“Long live the White race! Down with the Semite-led subhumans and interracial contacts! … [We are engaged} in a crusade against the Jewite-led subhumans!”
He is talking about the Russian cultured population. Washington’s strategy against them is Full Spectrum Domination, as it may well be against the American population. Since dissident Whites must be included in this oppression, considered Terrorists like the Novarussia leaders, I think that Blacks work better in the racial narrative than do Muslims in the US. But we will soon see if this is correct, as Divide and Ruin, what Naomi Klein has called disaster capitalism, is applied in America.
You forget. Clinton spent 8 years trying to make all white guys zealous patriots with the potential to become the new terrorists. Forming Militia’s of racist skin heads. See OKC Bombing, Ruby Ridge and Waco narratives.
Bush switched back to Arabs for 911. See 1993 WTC Bombing.

Sure seems to be a lot of news on Americans held hostage overseas lately. Did a search on the recently beheaded journalist and it appears he only made the news after his death.
This June 2014 article on Americans held hostage, does not mention him.
FYI–Jeff C. a Canadian researcher @ Radio Free Revolution has a great video on You Tube>>>>>>>>>> ” 9/11 Predictive Programming EVERYWHERE! MUST SEE!” Warning: he has a humorous way of using colorful language when commenting. Sorry no direct link as I’m computer challenged.
yes hockey is OK, but humorous use of colorful language is the best thing to come out of Canada.
To bring the article into it, yes I do find myself demonized as a right-wing hillabilly by American liberals when I suggest ISIS may be a bogeyman with real teeth.
Perhaps this is their plan, by getting offended with my hillabilly label, I put on the real bogey man suit and scare them with talk of Plutonium and Russian Jets.

The use of identity concealing facemasks by police is something I find totally unacceptable. Anonymity can be intoxicating. I also notice a large proportion of the folks getting beat up on in this video are white.
patrick, it’s this one:
I have yet to see a better example of “made for TV” bogey man manufacture than this one.
They are obviously ramping up for another mega-production. These guys have a “death star” and they’ll steal the socks from your drier.
Wow! That may be why the state department decided earlier this year to call them ISIL, they just forgot to send the memo out to the media!
International Secret Intelligent Service = ISIS!
Isis was the brother and wife of Osiris and she gathered up his body parts when he was destroyed so he could be reassembled and resurrected. She is very important to the secret societies of the past and present, and I’m sure the use of her name was no mistake.
The name “ISIS” was derived from a Saturday Morning Cartoon lineup that aired in 1975-1976. A young high school science teacher uncovered an old and valuable amulet while on her summer journey through the Mideast. The amulet enabled her to conjure up ancient powers and transform into a superhero.
Valerie Jaret, who is my age, but still quite portly and out of shape, most likely watched alot of cartoons in her youth. Since she is part of the puppet US Govt and the de facto head of the CIA, one can theorize that the name ISIS came from this administration.
Here is a cut and paste of a comment I made on the subject a few threads ago:
AUGUST 25, 2014 AT 8:18 AM
David Ovason wrote a remarkable book called The Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital. It’s not about the obvious stuff, like the street layout and the goat’s head formation of the Capital building’s grounds. It’s about all the zodiacs in public buildings and parks that no one but the initiate even notices–their purpose and symbolism. It’s about the days and times the Masons chose to dedicate buildings and monuments to align with the positions of heavenly bodies (and also the placement on Earth of those buildings and monuments, to reflect the relative positions of the stars that are significant to Masonry).
This is from page 87:
The importance of Virgo, and her connections with the Egyptian goddess Isis, and been recognized in Masonic circles from the very early days of American Masonry. The French astronomer Joseph Lalande had been an important Mason, and his writings were widely read by Americans of the late 18th century. As early as 1731, Lalande had recognized that:
the Virgin is consecrated to Isis, just as Leo is consecrated to her husband Osiris…The sphinx, composed of a Lion and a Virgin, was used as a symbol to designate the overflowing of the Nile…they put a wheat-ear in the hand of the virgin, to express the idea of the months, perhaps because the sign of the Virgin was called by the Orientals, Sounbouleh or Schibbolet, that is to say epi or wheat-ear,
The spiritual growth which Masonry encourages enabled Masons to sense a profound symbolism in the stars and planets, and to relate these symbols to earthly events. This was nowhere more evident than in the symbolism of their foundation stone ceremonies, which they linked with the wheat goddess, under her various names (the symbolic importance of wheat is very evident in the above quotation). However, their concern was not only with the power of the celestial Virgin, as tutelary zodiacal sign of the new city, but also with arcane astrological symbolism in general.
End of quote.
The book is filled with this Isis/Virgo stuff, because evidently all of Washington was constructed around this Masonic/neoEgyptian symbolism. From page 155:
As we approach the mysteries of Washington D.C., we shall find that the image of Virgo, her symbols of corn and cornucopia, takes on more and more importance. Indeed, we shall conclude that those who oversaw the design of the city adopted Virgo as its arcane leitmotif.
One final quote, from page 168:
The Isis of the Egyptians…like the later Virgin of the Christians…was Queen of Heaven….But what exactly does this mean? How can a spiritual being–a living spiritual archetype–have an interest in, let alone a rulership over a city? In particular, can it be true that such esoteric bodies as the Masons regard these ancient gods and goddesses of the stellar pantheon as living beings, with the power to exude benefices and virtues on certain parts of the Earth?….The idea that countries and cities are ruled by spiritual beings is very ancient….
I quote at such length because the evil geniuses who rule us are the inheritors of a very old, very long range plan. They telegraph everything they intend to do to us in advance, and plant all their symbolism in plain sight (the Vigilant Citizen exists to chronicle this), confident that us Mundanes can’t see it. We need those special sunglasses from the movie They Live.
The District of Columbia is the grandest example of this. As I argue in the most recent posting at my own blog (click on my name and it will be the first thing you see), American Christians tend to be the naivest people in the world in this regard; they so want to believe that the Framers of the Constitution intended to build a Christian country here that they completely overlook the obviously pagan nature of absolutely every aspect of that place. It was designed and built by Masons, for esoteric, spiritual, purposes, with the intent to create a Masonic Empire, and as Ovason demonstrates, the project continues to this day. The average Mason has no idea of the deep mysteries of the Craft, and even less understanding that there are Masons telling a story in stone.
Yes, America is under the control of very, very, dark spiritual forces. That’s what the Constitutional Convention was called into being to accomplish. The men who inherited that project in our own time are laughing at us, just as the men who came before them did.
Yes to all. The ARE laughing at us. More like rubbing our noses in it. We’ll be seeing those “space aliens” any day now. ‘ISIS will get ya’ if the Ebola doesn’t first.
Oh, let’s not forget that NATO is doing everything in their power to bring about WWIII with Russia. These mutts are insane. I think Patrick’s right. Maybe they plan to head for those underground bases soon.
that’s the whole point. First they beat up and subjugate the non-Whites, then they beat up and subjugate the Whites.
Has anyone seen the non-reaction of Foley’s siblings as they are being interviewed by Katie Couric and the frame falls off the wall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv8oclY7h0Q
Also, Stan Monteith had a guest on a few days ago, Constance Cumbey, who spoke for part of the interview about the occult history of ISIS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv8oclY7h0Q
Good points. But I’ll respectfully offer an important correction. The organized disinformation is not just the work of “the government and corporate-controlled media.” These entities could not effectively spew propaganda for more than a few months if the numerous watchdogs that could counter it would not also live the same propaganda. Anti-war groups, Muslim advocacy groups, the Syrian government, and many others could effortlessly educate their supporters on ISIS, not to mention Building 7’s video record, yet appear committed to support the disinformation.
Accordingly, an attempt to get humanity out of Plato’s cave would advantageously start with any of these watchdogs that fail to bark rather than with “the government and corporate-controlled media,” which are primarily a decoy behind which the real public enemies hide.
This guy explains a disinfo campaign very well. Also the PTB cannot have it both ways. They cannot say that we need to disarm the people and ban AR-15s and then tell us there is a Muslim Terrorist behind every tree. I wonder if you are more likely to be killed by lightning then a Muslim terrorist ?
This is the correct video on how disinfo campaigns are waged. The previous video was erroneously linked by me:

Daniel Noel has made the same point that James made previously, that the place to begin to deconstruct the lies is against the silence of the leftish Progressives, and I agree. The knuckle draggers of the right usually don’t respect truth unless it is backed by power.
What Global Research has called “manufactured dissent” is the first enemy of the people, since the pretense, often sincere, of being on the side of the people leads the population to accept deceit. To make truth powerful, the place to begin on the leftish side, and then extend to the rightish.
ISIS IS THE BACK DOOR ENTRY FOR THE U.S.A. AND OTHER PARTIES TO ENTER SYRIA.
Here in the United Kingdom, the ‘terror’ threat has been raised from ‘substantial’ – to ‘severe’, meaning that an attack is highly likely with the next stage being ‘critical’.
Good at their job aren’t they, the so called security services@ They know an attack is coming because the state will be the sole sponsors of such an event. Even if nothing materializes, the public will be kept under a blanket of fear and uncertainty, not knowing when, where and if the bogeyman will strike.
It seems they are prepping the stage for the next 9/11:
One still cannot take out buildings with them.
Ric’s Al Qaeda memo: Priceless. LOL.
Now I would like to address the idea of Jihadists(like in the video) doing Brodies in an armored personnel carrier: absolutely priceless. I can’t think of anything more American than doing a burnout in your APC. Our wars over there may not have spread democracy, but we are definitely rubbing off on them. Maybe in the next video they can paint it orange and put 01 on the side, a confederate flag on the top and jump the Mosul Dam with it. It won’t be as good as a 1968 Dodge Charger, but they executed the last guy in Iraq who could tune a 426 Hemi for jokingly asking “whats in the Bag Daddy” one time too many.

ISIS is either insane (quite likely) and/or collaborating with the states they pretend to menace, namely the U.S. They declare the beheading of Westerners is intended to punish and dissuade Western (read U.S.) powers from further interfering against them, yet, as the U.S. has manifestly demonstrated following 9/11 terrorist aggression against it and its citizens can only serve to invite retaliation (certainly not relentance, retreat, or acquiescence). Based on such post-911 precedents the beheading videos against Americans must be expected to produce an outcome contrary to the one ISIS itself pretends. Perhaps the least complicated or recherché manner of resolving this apparent discrepancy between professed intents and predictable outcomes is to assume their true intents are other than those professed, that there is, in effect, much disingenuousness behind ISIS’s words and acts, and that their true purposes involve the antagonization of the U.S. and perhaps even a complicit and coordinated effort at “self-antagonization.”

Lew Rockwell picked up this article today! Yippie!
It appears AJ is trying to rewrite history by implying CNN was all over the Benghazi cover up and arms shipments to our current enemy in Syria.
Nothing could be further from the truth. It is well known that only Cheryl Atkinson from CBS, who was mostly silenced and subsequently resigned and FOX that has been over this huge fraud manufactured to save the election for those running the show.
A colleague of James, Phillip Seib, a professor of journalism at the university of Southern California, gave an interesting interview to the Counsel on Foreign Relations. (A USC professor once told me ‘we’re trying to create a university there that the football team can be proud of.’) The gist of what Seib said was that Public Relations can only go so far, then reality kicks in.
When the world’s people see a picture of a half dozen White cops pointing automatic rifles at a small Black woman with her hands raised, they get a different view of Human Rights in the USA than is proclaimed by American power. And this is so no matter how racists demonize the victims of police brutality, or justify the militarized police.
But was Ferguson at least partially staged? There is good reason to suspect it. How, for example, did the police deploy in Ferguson dressed in camouflage rather than blue police uniforms? Did they change before hand? Why did they leave the body in the street for so long, instead of taking it in an ambulance to the hospital? Why… but there are many anomalies.
But why would Washington have Home Security take over the police departments when it knew what the world would think? Because domestic policy trumps Foreign policy. All politics are local, and Foreign policy is driven and restricted by domestic policy and the political culture that frames it. Ideological and policy deceit can soften, diffuse, and pervert the reality-based truth temporarily, but it cannot conceal it forever. America historically has been a highly racist and homicidal society, no matter how reluctant Americans are to acknowledge it.
Obama is taking advantage of this historical racism to solidify the racial, ethnic, and cultural identities of Americans in order to divide us. This is necessary to impose the American foreign policy of Divide and Ruin on the American people. It has been successful so far, to allow the Wall Street and bankster oligarchs to steal from the American people anything that isn’t nailed down. And they will continue to do so until Americans of all races and heritages unite effectively to resist the Terrorist War.
“And they will continue to do so until Americans of all races and heritages unite effectively to resist the Terrorist War.”
Right. And they will take over all the Deep Underground Military bases, and, I suppose, board up the entrances (what will your rainbow coalition do, Mark, when they try it? Ike threatened to use an army to gain access to Area 51–and that was the early phase, in the 1950s. They relented, and let his guys tour the place (part of this, at least). That’s all.
This ragtag coalition will also stop the drug dealing by the CIA, I’m guessing. Somehow. The killers who maintain that trade, and restructure recalcitrant governments in benighted states in the “third world” will simply accept their fate, when Mark’s coalition of ethnic ne’rdowells overthrow the system. I can picture those guys standing on street corners selling pencils and apples.
And all the accountants and lawyers–the mass of what remains of the middle class–who administer the administrative bureaucracy will acquiesce to the new state of affairs, after Mark’s ethnic march parades through the institutions. I think they will start milking cows at organic dairies, and vie with Mexican illegal aliens for jobs picking peaches and scrubbing toilets in hotels.
Ah, optimism. Wouldn’t it be lovely….
Patrick, I think the real trick is in the distraction. We spend a lot of time sussing out anomalies here and there in the day-to-day manufactured events. If we step back we might see that what is presented is never reality.
The “reality” is that a criminal (insane) cabal is running amok. All of the other “events” are productions to keep our attention elsewhere while they put the final touches on their creation.
Whether we string several “events” together or focus on them one at a time, there are seldom any logical explanations. The thing to remember is that much time and study has gone into the methods for mass mind control. They know the precise disposition they are after.
I’ve talked about the subject of “cognitive dissonance” before. It isn’t so much the “what” of the antecedent, it is the reaction. We have also discussed that none of these are ever done for a single purpose. Often, the event is primarily designed to “dispose” the masses to some other imprint.
For example, in SHES a lot of people focus on gun confiscation. While it is true that it is a desirable goal for them, a more important product of it is the modeling opportunity.
So while we scratch our collective heads wondering why this or that doesn’t add up, that is precisely what is necessary to induce the necessary spell for the subliminal takeaway. They are designed to always keep the mind in a state of trying to recognize something familiar in a contrived nightmare.
Remember, while were looking at this, they are doing “that”. They are already living their reality. They don’t want us to notice. We know that the actions taken in the larger world serve no desirable purpose for most of us. Through these never ending productions they keep us distracted and unlikely to make them accountable.
It really doesn’t matter what the subject matter is for the distraction. Whatever seems useful is used. The result is fear, uncertainty and the most suitable mindset for manipulation. The more you stare at it, the fuzzier it becomes.
Yes, lophatt, and their skill at controlling the Public Mind seems to me by now complete. Miles Mathis, whom I’ve grown to really appreciate after reading half a dozen articles (he calls them “papers,” perhaps because they are so long), believes that the intelligence community is so vast, and so powerful, and so confident, that they don’t really care what people like us say about them, how much we learn about their plans and methods, because they can’t be touched.
This is possible.
On the other hand, they kill people who have the public eye, who can get the wider world talking about elements of the larger conspiracy, forcing the MSM to start reporting it. Andrew Breitbart was a master at tricking the MSM into doing actual reporting–and he declared his goal to be the destruction of the MSM. He was effective, and on the brink of genuine household name stardom, so they used on of their clever means to kill him without leaving their fingerprints behind.
I strongly suspect this is what happened to Joan Rivers–she forced the MSM to tell the world that lots of people know Barry Soetoro is gay, and that some people think Michelle Obama is a transexual. She never backed down, ever in her life, and everyone knew that she believed the “outrageous” things she said, and that she would double down on the largest stage she could find when anyone tried to shut her up. Everyone knew her, so she was a lot more effective than Andrew had gotten, even if she was not “political.” The biggest open secret since Liberace has been 100% hermetically sealed out of the MSM, and Joan Rivers called the MSM on it, and laughed in their face when they acted shocked that she could say such a thing, as if they are a bunch of morons. So they killed her. Once again, leaving no fingerprints behind.
In the newest posting at MHB, James’ radio interview about JFK, the text talks about how it’s likely that the publisher of the Washington Post was murdered because he was not reliably in the intelligence community’s control, and they needed to have zero MSM participation in entertaining alternate theories about Kennedy’s murder. The publisher’s wife, of course, proved perfectly reliable, so she went on to make it to a ripe old age, having become the doyenne of Mordor (Lew Rockwell’s affectionate name for Washington).
Mark dreams that the masses can rise up and throw off this oppression. I know that this is not possible, because that’s what O’Brien told Winston Smith. No, the proles are not allowed to learn that there are alternate explanations for public events, and if they do hear tell of such things they are assured that “conspiracy theories” are the fevered ravings of the mentally ill. O’Brien, in fact, kept assuring Winston that he only opposed the state because he was insane, but that they could not allow him to leave this world until he was “cured.” Only after he really loved Big Brother, and would truly believe anything the Party said, would they kill him.
The police state is not yet fully in place, so it can’t yet insist that all the Andrews and Joans be “cured” before they are killed–and it’s too important that the proles hear only newspeak from the MSM to allow these heretics to live. It must stick in Big Brother’s craw to have any of his enemies leave this Earth still hating him, especially after having awakened some of the proles to the truth.
Patrick, although I, too, think Phil Graham was probably murdered, and Janney has made a good case that Katharine Graham was involved, Katharine was not simply “the publisher’s wife.” She was the owner’s daughter. The Washington Post was her family’s business and control of it, but for sexism, would have been handed over by her father to HER instead of to her HUSBAND. Her husband was in charge simply because he married her.
Would like to think the spirit of Andrew Breitbart lives on.
Patrick, I totally agree. I’m not sure I’ve found the right combination of words to describe what I think about all this. What you say about “power” is true. We must remember; “who you gonna call?”.
We think that we’re actually looking at what’s going on. We aren’t. “They” are simply doing it. The rest is distraction.
The idea of “rising up” implies that there is some entity that is responsive to something. The fact is that, just like La Cosa Nostra (our thing), they are doing their thing. The military cops are the physical manifestation of protection for them.
I hadn’t considered Joan Rivers. That’s a good catch. I suppose embarrassing Barry and Michael (first Amerikan Queen), might get you “depressed” or malpracticed. As you say, all you have to do is LOOK.
I’m afraid that “Cosmic Justice” is the only reward these retrobates will receive. Some believe that they’ll inherit all the fear of all those who they’ve harmed. It’s a nice thought.
I think you’re spot on about the nature of who gets killed and who doesn’t. I don’t think it is out of fear that they do that. They simply remove impediments to their progress. Just like kicking a stone out of one’s path. Sometimes it’s pure revenge, not fear.
We are blessed not to be able to see the world as they do. They are literally “alien creatures”. Even the Satanists who’s worldview is completely self-serving are different from their masters. Their masters don’t “hate”, they are completely indifferent. They have every material thing they desire.
In the final analysis the theme has not changed in two thousand years. I sometimes wonder why we are so surprised by it. It is completely consistent with what faith informs us is true.
[Preface: Predictive/imposed determinism translates (for the purposes of the NSA) into a regime of political and economic unidimensionality over the entirety of the world and over all the human individuals contained within it; it is a subject that is amply documented in academic sources, and yet there is hardly any mention of it in Wikileaks’ entire archives. On the other hand, predictive analytics/determinism forms the very substance of and the basis for the Snowden revelations; how to explain the yawning discrepancy between the paucity of testimony of predictive/imposed determinism in the Wikileaks archives on the one hand, and its overwhelming corroboration, indeed instantiation, by Snowden’s NSA-centered revelations on the other?]
How is it possible for American authorities in the White House, State, Pentagon and elsewhere to say with a straight face that ISIS is “Beyond anything we’ve seen” and by implication that as far as their predictive analytics are concerned it was an inconceivable development, when, for example, Philip Bobbitt seems to have very much anticipated the development of such terroristic “market states” in his book ‘Terror and Consent’? And, in turn, how is it possible for the (mainstream) press to accept such astounding and astoundingly profuse professions of institutional blindness, unpreparedness, and ineptness without nary a published and credited remark of incredulity or skepticism?
Good objections, Patrick, overcoming a long established and deepening police state is not going to be easy. The American people must ally with an international coalition against Washington’s imperialism if it is be effective and eventually triumph. The fear and loathing of the earth’s people against Washington’s Divide and Ruin policy must be used to attack it from all sides for a few decades, until it finally collapses. And this may not happen until it actually uses some of the nuclear weapons that Global Research fears in a future war.
ISIS is interestingly, and in contrast to many traditional insurgent and terrorist groups, symbolic of a recrudescence of capitalism and not a revolutionary break from of it. It neither practically nor ideologically rejects capitalism, indeed, through its combination of marauding brigandage, opportunistic and indiscriminate mercantilism (e.g. clandestine trafficking), and rational usurpation and utilization of preexisting resources and infrastructures it conspicuously embodies an extreme form of it. Such a form was predictively described by American foreign policy strategist Philip Bobbitt as a terroristic reflection of the emerging capitalist market state itself (which exists for the “maximization of opportunities” for economic expansion in contrast to nation states’ promise of improvements in mass material well-being): “Terrorism in the era of the market state will reﬂect the nature of the market state. It will be decentralised, disseminated via the internet, and threaten the use of WMD and germ warfare…It could come from a number of other sources…and when it does come the potential for disaster will be extreme.” Indeed, the aforesaid makes the claim that “that the primary driver of terrorism is not Islam but the emergence of market states (like the U.S…)”. Perhaps the intentionality behind such “primary” drives is more direct and concerted than the author would care to admit.
John Luv, She was more than a cartoon. Wow, better than wonder woman, and every bit as good as I remember,
Wow, the pendant looks very similar to the design that this Cia group isis is currently displaying.
That’s it. From now on I’ll call them “Cindy Leigh”.
“Defender of the Week”…guess she got her pic hung on the wall at a Mc Donalds???
It appears we have the media declaring Americans want to go war, which I believe is totally false.
We are tired of arming our enemies and supporting this never stopping war machine.
Here’s a brave marine confronting McCain on his war mongering and of course, he totally refuses to respond to the charges.
Suppose this just about sums it up.
Interesting that we did not hear from the Washington representative, that was from the Center for American Progress, but his body language tells it all. It was like he was an inflatable doll, with no eyes and the air was let out slowly while he crumbled over.
Could not stand to review the Center for American Progress website for long, as their goals seem to be opposite from their title. Where have we heard that before?
Green energy the way for the future, Green cards for illegal immigrants will increase revenues…. arghhhh
By ISIS we mean ICIAsis. There are a million ways to insert “cia” into things. It’s not as if they’re not already there, and somehow coincidentally, their fronts espouse hatred of America and Israel but always only kill for the benefit of what we’ll today call Nato. Any one else have enemies that always do favors for them?
Thank you James for the link on the JFK conference coming up and the thousands of pages of proof on this perhaps one of the first grand conspiracies.
Just when I was thinking I should be reducing my computer time, there is a treasure trove of documents to review.
On the upside, my husband brushes me off with all the current ‘conspiracies”. mostly I think because he knows and is worried about me and just wants to gain his full retirement benefits next year after investing almost 50 years in that quest.
Starting from ground zero, just may enlighten the masses!
Did people know that James Jesus Angleton, head of CIA when JFK was shot, was almost certainly crypto-YKW? LBJ probably wasn’t but was integral to the crytpo-pipeline coming through Texas and was staunchly zionist. JFK refused Israel nukes and wanted to disempower the tribal-run Fed.
On the topic of all the current hoaxes, I’ve noticed they’re not being propagated the way they were at a fever pitch earlier in the summer.
Good Article! ISIS freaks me. They dress like ninjas. My gut feeling is it’s the new Al Queda boogie man, which supposedly metastasized like a cancer while we were distracted by our own trigger happy lone wolves, and their endless gunning down of random citizens. Will they be blamed for more terror on US soil? Ask again later. Here in Santa Barbra county laws are being passed in the wake of the Isla Vista shooting: Santa Barbra considers adopting Laura’s Law. http://www.independent.com/news/2014/sep/04/lauras-law-treatment-trump-tragedy/
and “two bills ‘inspired’ by Elliot Rodgers lethal rampage in Isla Vista this spring.” cleared the state legislature this week http://www.independent.com/news/2014/sep/02/elliot-rodger-bills-pass-legislature/
I have also been thinking about why the matrix is asking us to re-live the sixties currently but haven’t quite figured it out yet….I saw Sharon Tate on the cover of the 9/03/14 issue of People magazine and CNN was playing a series about the Sixties all summer. Everything is at a state of high weirdness as usual, with ISIS everywhere.
Sorry typo: Santa Barbara
That’s a good observation. You couldn’t create a “foe” as over the top as this. It makes the James Bond movies seem subtle. These guys will steal the socks out of your drier.
There isn’t one thing logical about it. Armed to the teeth, fully-funded, they’re EVERYWHERE! It’s like Bollywood meets Godzilla. Those “media” people earn their pay. I couldn’t do that with a straight face.
The proper response to this is to laugh out loud. How far can we be from “extraterrestrial invasion”?
C(see) R(our) ISIS….
The media is stooping to new lows reporting on fake cell phones towers that are sucking all your data from your cell phone. Don’t worry though, this German based company, who works on government communication, can sell you a phone for $3,500 that detects where these towers are.
Most of us realize, it practically takes an act of congress to get permission to erect a tower. Be afraid, be very afraid!
Anyone else notice the proliferation of terrorist crises the closer we get to 9/11? It’ll be interesting to see if ISIS gets quieter once the anniversary passes.
