The Blue Pill.

A must-watch video.

The EU has been sold to Britain as our best hope for the future. But behind the scenes, has another, more unsettling agenda been unfolding? The European Economic Community (EEC) began for Britain as a free-trade agreement in 1972.

Today’s European Union is well on its way to becoming a federal superstate, complete with one currency, one legal system, one military, one police force – even its own national anthem.

In this shocking new documentary featuring EU insiders and commentators, independent author Phillip Day covers the history and goals of the European Union, as well as the disturbing, irrevocable implications this new government has for every British citizen.

Whether the viewer is for or against Britain’s participation, this film asks the troubling questions the mainstream media has refused to confront.

Sounds interesting.  On my "must watch" list for later this evening.   minusculethumbsup2
My piece below may seem to be catering for the nieve or simple-minded who see the world
with a selfish set of values where nuance and negotiation have no place. We use expressions
like 'not all...' and 'in my opinion...' because of the need to explain that what we say is a
generic view and not written in stone.

If an error is made on a fact or a perception is offered where specifics are not accurately
displayed, the 'soupçon' mistake is seized upon to argue about and the overall opinion is
lost in a mire of 'what you said was...' instead what an opponent of the offered opinion knew
really what was meant.

It's a symptom of the addiction to the Blue Pill!

We live in a world where narrative composition  -especially in word-form, goes unnoticed,
where unwanted information that must be shown to imply fairness, is placed in the middle
of an article so that the impact of a sensational headline is maintained and the real forced
suitable message is kept until the end of the story.
That way, the reader or viewer forgets the unwanted information and gobbles down the

This is what many of today's social-media and facets of Journalism are hanging onto.
In blogging forums, they meander with 'whataboutery' and other tools of persuasion to
craft an opinion that hold hidden agendas.

All I can say at this point is I do not have an agenda, I am merely an observer.

It seems the current vogue of debate is forced in the manner suggested above and I mean
no disrespect in the wording here to those who can see beyond what the mainstream media
shovel in our direction everyday.

I would dare to state that every person on this planet has a point of view based on their
belief-structure and how they've wittingly or unwittingly been moulded by the society or
environment they exist in. And if that same planet agrees that one individual's views are just
as important as another's, then surely a overall common ground can be reached, yes?

Detente is always needed and when an accord is reached, it is usual that the minority
begrudgingly cede -to some extent, to the majority because commonsense prevails through
the logic that a greater-good tends to benefit the greater amount of people.
In essence, that's what Rogue Nation was formed for... nobody gets left behind!

Usually, the majority gets it's message out via the conduits of the media and the message
becomes the agreed backbone of the masses that other beneficial ideas can be attached

The media are an important part of this communication and the act is symbiotic, the community
gets to hear what others are thinking and the media benefits financially by growing it's readership.
In these days of the internet and social media, the established 'Fourth Estate' is under increasing
pressure of being drowned out. 

So why is it that when the people of France cry out in one voice that the establlishment that
they've believed in for so long is no longer vaiable, the media are reluctant to extrapolate the
opinions of someone a majority of the the French voted for?

A chosen political party has many strings to it's bow and the leader of group isn't the person
who steers it's views, he or she is merely the conduit to the public they're supposed to represent.
Again, my writing may seem obvious, but I'm alarmed by how the mainstream media will not dwell
on and debate the idea of a genuine discussion of a particular candidate.

Marine Le Pen's National Front came second on the first vote and with Emmanuel Macron only
claiming around two percent more than the only female in the election, I'm just surprised at the
lack of discussion on what many French citizens are obviously desire and are showing by voting
for Ms. Le Pen.

Her party's views may not be the most 'cosmopolitan' but if we can debate gender-assignment,
US President's Trump's tweets and the strife of living in a migrant camp, surely the same public who
voted for Marine Le Pen must be confronted with a fair narrative from the media?

The BBC states what she wants:
*Negotiation with Brussels on a new EU, followed by a referendum
*"Automatic" expulsion of illegal immigrants and legal immigration cut to 10,000 per year following an
immediate total moratorium
*"Extremist" mosques closed and priority to French nationals in social housing
*Retirement age fixed at 60 and 35-hour week assured

I would suggest that the first and second wishes are the reasons the MSM don't wish to discuss the
pros and cons of her party's ambitions, a referendum would certainly disrupt the European Project and
would add even more verve for a break-up of this non-elected bureaucratic wast of money.

The second request of expulsion can be seen as a demand from the public that bombings, vehicular
killings and death by firearms are not wanted alongside what many of the French see as a dilution of
their unique culture.

So why would the media give a damn about these views...? Why would they 'care' whether a blonde
-haired divorcee didn't like the European Union and wanted the economic migrants out of her country?
They report the news don't they...? They don't form it!

Instead of opening up these opinions, the MSM quickly show the unwanted information and then -not
only tarry on the views of the current leader of the election, which is fair in my opinion, but they also
fill the columns with viewpoints that the dropped-out losers had too!
Should they do this...? I ask myself and resist the urge to believe the MSM are attempting to make
me believe (and presumably the French voters too!)...that what they think is the correct way to see this

Then I succumb to my sarcasm and continue!!

Except they do, the mainstream media have fed the masses a narrative that has changed the middle-class
young into unwitting political zombies, who perceive a world where kindness is great as long as someone
else performs it. Their undeveloped perceptions force them to behave in the same manner as their school
days, they don't wish to stand out from the crowd, yet they crave their individuality.

The young feel that they are fully equipped to enter adulthood and yet larp and bawl when they don't
get their own way. But the world doesn't work like that and I'm ranting. Sorry.

The same media has ignored the generations of the working classes in favour of producing fluff pieces of the
mundane and moulding a politically-charged incident into a mono-browed opinion that merely caters for a
'now' perspective.

To do this, the European Community and the recent years of grey, unregulated abuse of power in the United
States are an ideal forum to gambol in and produce a quality of journalism of a quality past-scribes of that
trade would baulk at.

Religion is a major aspect in the current european situation and it won't matter if you're an athiest or just
accept that all ideologies are okay, it seems that many of France's citizens are realising what is just around
the corner.

The newspapers and television networks daren't approach these respective subjects because they would be
entering the world of Le Pen and the people who voted for her, exist in and it seems their media-masters do
not want to wander into these adult, disturbing realities.

We may not have the 'Thought Police' of Orwell's story, yet... but I'd suggest we already be entertaining the
'Narrative Enforcers'!!

French election: Media warned not to publish hacked Macron emails.

'French officials say it may be illegal to circulate leaked messages from the presidential
candidate's campaign. The media has been warned not to publish the contents of hacked
emails from Emmanuel Macron's presidential campaign.

France's electoral commission has said any organisations that circulate information from
the leaked messages may be committing a criminal offence.

On Friday, Mr Macron's campaign team confirmed it had fallen victim to a "massive hacking
attack" which resulted in hundreds of internal documents being dumped online.

About nine gigabytes of data was posted by an anonymous user called EMLEAKS, only hours
before the end of official election campaigning...'

I suppose that's the thing about age, some of us can remember a time when this sort of Establishment
control would have been scoffed at. Whoever the Electoral Commission are, they dont know what is or
isn't illegal and in the spirit of today's Blue-Pill dumbing down project, the warning will be heeded by the
European media to avoid revealing their agenda of keeping the masses ignorant.

Journalists used to search for the truth instead of a grey, soft, middle-class version of a truth. The idea
that the pantomime's evil character Le Pen must be maintained whilst Macron the-Prince-of-the-People
must always be seen in a golden light.

It's ironic that CNN's Chris Cuomo stated:
“...Also interesting is remember, it’s illegal to possess, ah, the stolen documents... it’s different for the media.
So everything you’re learning about this, you’re learning from us,”

The rules of free speech must be different in Europe, huh?

I mean. he fits their profile I understand.
Didn't he say he'd marry his H/s teacher when he was 15 years old and she was in her 40's after they spent time together with her helping him on One on One Sessions.

Quote:This is the moment a 15-year-old Emmanuel Macron kissed his 40-year-old teacher - two years before he declared he wanted to marry her.

Pictures show the French presidential favourite acting on stage as a teenager before leaning in to kiss Brigitte Trogneux - 25 years his senior - on the cheek after a theatrical performance in May 1993.

Miss Trogneux, now 64, was once the drama coach of centre-Left candidate Macron, now 39, who won first place in the first round of the presidential elections.
They went on to marry in 2007.

Speaking of the moment they first met, the glamorous grandmother of seven who could become France's first lady, said: 'He [Macron] came to audition for a part in the play and I watched him.
I just found him incredible. He had such presence.'

She went on: 'Without doubt he wasn't like the others. He was always with the teachers. He simply wasn't an adolescent.'

With the sudden drop of terrorist-related news being reported, if an obvious incident comes to light at
the most famous airport in the UK, it's sometimes best to set out one's account to maintain the illusion
that attacks in the first-world societies have subsided and more importantly, travelling from certain
countries is not a factor.

After all, showing that President Trump was correct with his travel-ban is not what the establishment
want to hear.

Words such as 'briefly' implies a light, non-urgent incident that many Journalists know will give the reader
the false feeling that the assumed strict-control in these facilities apply, are still in place and sometimes
overreact to even the most fleeting of worries.

If it turns out that a serious, life-threatening activity has occurred and due to the amount of the public
involved could put this diluting of the facts in peril of the mainstream media's covering-up agenda, then
there's no other way but to report it and keep the scare-tactics down to a minimum.

At the forefront of the mainstream media's concern is the establishment's credo must be maintained,
so it's best to place the actual facts of an ongoing danger at the end of the report, based on the idea
that the reader's attention-span is short and they won't get that far.
Another clue a to how the established media perceive their dumbed-down, decreasing readership.

Heathrow briefly suspends flights after suspicious item found.

'Flights at Heathrow airport were briefly suspended after a suspicious item was detected by
an x-ray of luggage at Terminal 3.

Metropolitan police were still working with airport authorities after the discovery at about 8am
on Friday triggered a security alert. As flights resumed, passengers complained on Twitter
about the subsequent delays and long queues.

A Met spokeswoman said officers were working with the airport authorities and inquiries were

A spokesman for Heathrow said: “Departures were suspended for a short time from Terminal 3
due to a security issue. We are very sorry to any passengers whose journeys are affected.
The safety and security of our passengers and colleagues is paramount.”

The security alert comes the day after a man arriving at Heathrow on a flight from Turkey was arrested
on suspicion of terrorism-related crime. There is no suggestion the arrest and security alert are related.
The man, 30, was detained by the Met’s counter-terror squad as he stepped off a plane from Istanbul
on Thursday evening.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said the man had been arrested on suspicion of preparing for terrorist acts
and terrorist training. He remains in custody at a south London police station while officers search a
property in the east of the capital...'

Isn't it good to know the conduit between what is happening in the world and those who want to know
the facts, have your best interests at heart?!

Oh indeed for both comments!

There are private forums where Journalists discuss tactics on how to deliver packaged news
and approved narratives. Many viewers/readers assume that if one news-outlet carries a story,
then the rest just follow suit, but think about how this comes about.

Before the internet and the capability of 'trending', this mono-society, altogether-news reporting
behavior went on and now with the last twenty years of Amway-like, brainwashed educating of the
young, it's easy to convince most of the 'European' public with words that they want to hear.

It 'feels' safe to be part of something you believe has your best interests and say the things you want
to hear... but think about what a Policeman in the UK looked like back then to what they look like now.

I’m constantly amazed by the ability of those in power to create a narrative trusted by a gullible non-critical thinking populace. Appealing to emotions, when you have millions of functionally illiterate, normalcy bias ensnared, iGadget distracted, disciples of the status quo, has been the game plan of the Deep State for the last century. Americans don’t want to think, because thinking is hard. They would rather feel. For decades the government controlled public education system has performed a mass lobotomy on their hapless matriculates, removing their ability to think and replacing it with feelings, fabricated dogma, and social indoctrination. Their minds of mush have been molded to acquiesce to the narrative propagandized by their government keepers.
“The problem isn’t that Johnny can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Johnny can’t think. The problem is that Johnny doesn’t know what thinking is; he confuses it with feeling.”Thomas Sowell
With a majority confused, distracted, malleable, willfully ignorant, and easily manipulated by false narratives, heart wrenching images, and fake news, the Deep State henchmen have been able to control the masses with relative ease. The unanticipated rise of Donald Trump to the most powerful role in the world gave many critical thinking, anti-big government, skeptical curmudgeons hope he could drain the swamp and begin to deconstruct the massive out of control Federal bureaucracy.

His rhetoric during the campaign about repealing the disastrous Obamacare abortion, cutting taxes, dismantling Federal regulatory red tape, making Mexico pay for the wall, dumping Yellen, favoring higher interest rates, and not interfering militarily in countries who are not threatening the United States, appealed to many libertarian minded people.
I’ve watched with disgust over the last month as the promises of non-interventionism by a presidential candidate have been broken by the third consecutive president. George W. promised a humble foreign policy with no nation building. He had criticized the Clinton-Gore Administration for being too interventionist:
“If we don’t stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we’re going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I’m going to prevent that.”
With 9/11 as a convenient excuse, he invaded sovereign countries based on flawed data, passed the 4th Amendment destroying Patriot Act, allowed neo-cons to create a Orwellian surveillance state, and permitted the military industrial complex to regain its power and control over the political apparatus in Washington D.C. With no Cold War to fill their coffers, neo-cons in Congress, warmongering think tank co-conspirators, military brass and their arms dealer cronies needed to create a new war to keep the racket going.
The War on Terror is unwinnable because you can’t defeat a tactic, and that is just what the Deep State is counting on. An unwinnable war, like the War on Drugs and War on Poverty, results in never ending funding, no evaluation of success or failure, continuous propaganda designating new enemies whenever convenient, and a narrative questioning the patriotism of anyone who argues against foreign interventionism.
After Bush’s reign of error, the election of a liberal community activist as president surely would result in a dramatic reduction in military intervention around the world. It was so certain, Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for just being elected for promising hope and change. He ran against neo-con tool McCain who never met a country he didn’t want to invade. Obama’s words as a candidate echoed those of Bush Jr. before he was placed on the throne by the powers that be.
“We continue to be in a war that should never have been authorized. I am proud of the fact that way back in 2002, I said that this war was a mistake.”
After being elected Obama immediately changed his tune about the business of war. He withdrew troops from Iraq as required by the agreement signed by Bush with the Iraq puppet government, but he ramped up the never ending Afghanistan war – now sixteen years old and still not won. The vacuum left by our epic failure in Iraq allowed the rise of ISIS. Obama essentially created ISIS by providing arms to “moderate” rebels fighting Assad in Syria.
By the end of his term, troops were back in Iraq and more are on the way. Obama and a Secretary of State named Clinton decided to overthrow Gaddafi even though he posed no threat to U.S. interests. They have left a lawless chaotic failed state, now home to ISIS, Al Qaeda, and various other terrorist factions.
Obama should have won the Nobel Drone Prize as he launched ten times as many attacks as Bush, killing thousands, blowing up wedding parties, and murdering hundreds of innocent civilians. He bombed seven countries even though we are not officially at war with anyone. He renewed all aspects of the unconstitutional Patriot Act. Edward Snowden revealed the mass surveillance on all Americans by Obama’s spy agencies.
His continued support for the overthrow of Assad, so Saudi Arabia and Qatar could build a natural gas pipeline to Europe, was thwarted by Putin. Hysterically, after eight years of war mongering and expansion of the warfare/welfare surveillance state, Obama is now portrayed as a pacifist. The fact is Obama, like Bush, filled his role in the imperial empire, policing the world, enriching the military industrial complex, and doing the bidding of his Deep State sponsors.
Now we have Donald Trump, the billionaire champion of the common man, who campaigned on getting out of the nation building business. Where have I heard that before? Exactly one year ago, Trump gave a foreign policy speech laying out his vision for the U.S. role in the world.
“We’re getting out of the nation-building business and instead focusing on creating stability in the world. However, unlike other candidates for the presidency, war and aggression will not be my first instinct. You cannot have a foreign policy without diplomacy. A superpower understands that caution and restraint are really truly signs of strength. Although not in government service, I was totally against the war in Iraq, very proudly, saying for many years that it would destabilize the Middle East. Sadly, I was correct, and the biggest beneficiary has been has been Iran, who is systematically taking over Iraq and gaining access to their very rich oil reserves, something it has wanted to do for decades.”
He scorned Obama and Bush’s foolish attempt at creating western style democracies in 3rd world den of snakes, inhabited by factions of Muslim religious fanatics. He railed against the trillions wasted fighting worthless wars, leaving countries in anarchy, and allowing terrorists organizations like ISIS to fill the vacuum. His arguments sounded like they were being spoken by Ron Paul. He clearly ran as a non-interventionist.
“We went from mistakes in Iraq to Egypt to Libya, to President Obama’s line in the sand in Syria. Each of these actions have helped to throw the region into chaos and gave ISIS the space it needs to grow and prosper. Very bad. It all began with a dangerous idea that we could make western democracies out of countries that had no experience or interests in becoming a western democracy.
We tore up what institutions they had and then were surprised at what we unleashed. Civil war, religious fanaticism, thousands of Americans and just killed be lives, lives, lives wasted. Horribly wasted. Many trillions of dollars were lost as a result. The vacuum was created that ISIS would fill. Iran, too, would rush in and fill that void much to their really unjust enrichment.”
Trump rationally promised to have peaceful relations with the other two nuclear superpowers. He was diplomatic, lucid and non-confrontational when talking about the two countries neo-cons love to hate. His promises of improved relations lasted about as long as it took the Deep State to create a blatant false flag in Syria.
“We desire to live peacefully and in friendship with Russia and China. We have serious differences with these two nations, and must regard them with open eyes, but we are not bound to be adversaries. We should seek common ground based on shared interests. Russia, for instance, has also seen the horror of Islamic terrorism. I believe an easing of tensions, and improved relations with Russia from a position of strength only is possible, absolutely possible. Common sense says this cycle, this horrible cycle of hostility must end and ideally will end soon. Good for both countries.”
There seems to be a common theme when it comes to how all presidents end up doing the bidding of the military industrial complex as soon as they settle into the Oval Office, no matter what they said during their campaigns. Trump is the latest example of talking diplomacy, no nation building, non-interventionism, and not putting boots on the ground, and then doing the exact opposite within weeks of taking office.
The game plan is tried and true. The Deep State either creates or provokes a false flag event to set in motion the pressure to respond militarily. They utilize their propaganda emitting media mouthpieces to spread disinformation and create the opinions of the non-critical thinking masses. Dramatic visual images and a storyline with an evil villain are essential to properly influencing a pliable, easily misled, oblivious public.
The use of false flag events, fake news, and staged graphic photographs to control and manipulate public opinion has been utilized for decades by the Deep State to push the country into military conflict craved by the military industrial complex. We’ve known for almost a century war is a racket, as described by General Smedley Butler in 1935.
[Image: hqdefault.jpg]
“War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.”
We were warned by the most respected general of the 20th Century about allowing the military industrial complex to gain control over our government and politicians. Eisenhower experienced the influence of the Deep State from the military perspective and firsthand as president. Sadly, his hopes for an alert and knowledgeable citizenry keeping the military industrial complex under wraps were dashed on the shoals of a purposefully failing public education system and a relentless propaganda campaign championing never ending war.
[Image: eisenhower-military-industrial-complex.jpeg]
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower         
Those controlling the levers of power have understood the power of propaganda since Edward Bernays taught them how to manipulate the public mind with his theories of propaganda in 1928. He believed the masses were driven by biological urges which needed to be channeled and guided by highly intelligent corporate elite overseers. His contempt for the masses was born out in his corporate fascist view of the world.
He believed our dangerous animalistic urges needed to be subdued to keep society sedate and controllable by those constituting the invisible government (aka Deep State). He trained the controllers to use propaganda in order to mold the minds of the masses in a way most beneficial to the state.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized.
Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”Edward Bernays – Propaganda
The use of propaganda and the flogging of false flag narratives by the corporate media acting as mouthpieces for the Deep State has worked wonders and resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of American boys and innocent victims (collateral damage according to neo-cons) around the world. An explosion that sunk the USS Maine was used by William Randolph Hearst and William McKinley to provoke a war with Spain in 1898.
The Gulf of Tonkin incident was a false flag used by LBJ and the war party in 1964 to kick off the Vietnam War, resulting in over 58,000 American deaths, 153,000 Americans wounded, hundreds of thousands mentally scarred for life, and the deaths of over 2 million Vietnamese. For who? For what? The American boys sacrificed on the altar of the Deep State were nothing but cannon fodder in the warped minds of McNamara, LBJ, Westmorland and the rest of warmongering elitists. Only the military industrial complex benefited, as the burgeoning welfare/warfare state resulted in raging inflation during the 1970s.
As time passed, the propagandists have become immensely more sophisticated in their messaging, psychological assessment of a dumbed down American populace, and manipulation of patriotism, symbolism and emotions to run roughshod over those opposing nonsensical, illegal, and immoral military intervention around the world. The most successful technique utilized by the Deep State for the last few decades has been “atrocity propaganda”. Appealing to the emotions of people who have been indoctrinated by government schooling to feel rather than think has been wildly successful in controlling the agenda.
[Image: hqdefault.jpg]
Atrocity propaganda was initially employed to sway public opinion to support the First Gulf War against Sadaam Hussein, engineered by Madison Avenue maggots from Hill & Knowlton on behalf of the Kuwaiti government. In emotional testimony before Congress an unidentified 15 year old girl, who happened to be the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the U.S., gave false testimony that she had witnessed Iraqi soldiers take babies out of incubators in a Kuwaiti hospital, take the incubators, and leave the babies to die.
This propaganda successfully convinced a clueless public to support our involvement in the Gulf War. With the end of the Cold War, how could the military industrial complex generate immense profits without enemies? Afterwards, Stormin Norman Schwarzkopf was glorified as the brilliant courageous hero. The masses need a hero to worship.
Whether 9/11 was a false flag or a monumental security blunder, it was hijacked by the neo-con faction within the government to wage perpetual war and turn our country into a surveillance state. A critical thinking citizen or honest journalist might wonder how the 342 page Patriot Act, which changed 15 existing laws and created entire new agencies, could be written, debated, and signed into law within 45 days of the 9/11 attack. It almost seemed like it was already written, awaiting the opportune time to implement. The War on Terror had begun. The Deep State managed to create a war against a tactic, which could never be won. It has done wonders for the military industrial complex, as arms industry stocks have risen 400% to 500% since 2001 versus the 100% rise in the S&P 500. War is a profitable racket.
The neo-cons immediately began their propaganda campaign to invade Iraq, even though they had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11. There were virtually no religious Muslim zealots inhabiting the country. Hussein hated bin Laden and his ilk. The propaganda machine, driven by Cheney and Wolfowitz, churned out false stories about 9/11 involvement and the imminent threat from Hussein using “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION”. The Colin Powell show on national TV convinced the fearful American populace to support the invasion of a country who threatened us in no way, without a declaration of war from Congress.
[Image: hqdefault.jpg]
The invasion of Iraq set the precedent that presidents can wage war around the globe with no legislative approval. The invasion became a reality TV show called Shock & Awe. In retrospect, the Iraq War was either a colossal error of judgement or exactly what the Deep State had in mind. The ultimate financial cost of our Middle East adventures will exceed $6 trillion, while 4,400 young men gave their lives, 32,000 were badly wounded, thousands more are afflicted with PTSD, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed or maimed, all for a worthless cause. Iraq is now a failed state, with Muslim terrorists controlling large swaths of territory.
The warnings from men of stature, integrity and nobility like Smedley Butler, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Ron Paul have gone unheeded by an increasingly dumbed down, iGadget absorbed, intellectually lazy, willfully ignorant, emotionally stunted populace. They question nothing. They believe whatever the boob tube tells them to believe. Their extreme level of normalcy bias allows the Deep State to maintain control and become outrageously bold in their lies, misinformation, and ability to convince the masses of the most ridiculous narratives. Only one voice in the wilderness remains. Speaking truth to power only creates change if an educated populace says enough is enough.

“How did the American people ever reach this point where they believe that US aggression in the Middle East will make us safe when it does the opposite? How did the American people ever reach the point where they believe that fighting unconstitutional wars is required to protect our freedoms and our Constitution? Why do we allow the NSA, CIA, FBI, TSA, etc. to destroy our liberty at home, as part of the Global War on Terror, with a pretext that they are preserving our liberty?
Why are the lying politicians reelected and allowed to bankrupt our country, destroy our money, and enter wars without the proper consent? Why do the American people suffer in silence and not scream “Enough is enough!”? We’ve had enough of the “humanitarian do-gooders” and the proponents of “American exceptionalism” who give us nothing but war, economic suffering, and less freedom. This can and must be stopped.” – Ron Paul, Swords into Plowshares: A Life in Wartime and a Future of Peace and Prosperity

“The offing was barred by a black bank of clouds, and the tranquil water-way leading to the uttermost ends of the earth flowed somber under an overcast sky–seemed to lead into the heart of an immense darkness.”Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
In Part Two of this article I will detail various recent false flag and propaganda episodes which are being used by the Deep State to push the world toward war. The acceleration of events based on false narratives, appeals to patriotism, and fake news puts the lives of millions at risk, with no comprehension of how they are being manipulated through propaganda techniques refined to a science. Imperial empires always fall due to their hubris and military overreach. We are being led into a heart of immense darkness.
Anyone remember the days when your enemy was never allowed to invade or even enter your country?
I must be missing the point because the articles below are just beyond my level of rationality and I wonder
at times if I'm the only one who gets how this has been caused by stupidity.

Manhunt in Paris following Gare du Nord evacuation.

'The station was evacuated after a tip-off that a would-be attacker was arriving on a high-speed train.
French police are hunting three men suspected of planning an Islamic State militant attack.

[Image: attachment.php?aid=1762]

The search follows a large-scale investigation at the Gare du Nord, one of the main railway stations in
Paris, on Monday night, when a high-speed train was evacuated and the station temporarily closed.

The evacuation took place after a tip-off from a ticket vendor in Valenciennes, near the Belgian border,
who thought they recognised a man they had seen on a police wanted notice.

Between 20 and 30 police vans were sent to the station with officers wearing balaclavas and carrying
assault weapons. Passengers were taken to a nearby brasserie where they were searched, but the
alert was called off after nothing was found.

A police spokesman said: "Unfortunately it was determined that the person was not in the train"...'

Aine Davis guilty of being senior Islamic State member.

'A British man suspected of being part of an Islamic State group that beheaded hostages has been
convicted of a terrorism offence in Turkey.

Aine Davis, 33, of London, had been arrested in 2015 near Istanbul. He was found guilty of being a
senior member of a terrorist organisation and jailed for seven-and-a-half years.

The BBC understands Davis was one of a four-man IS cell nicknamed "The Beatles", which included
the person dubbed Jihadi John.
Davis, the only one of the group to face a trial, had denied the charges against him.

One of the group's former captives welcomed the conviction by a Turkish judge at the court in at Silivri.
Spanish journalist Javier Espinosa, who was subjected to mock executions, told BBC News it did not
matter where Davis was tried.
"He should face justice wherever it is. It doesn't matter if it's in England or Turkey or wherever.
He should be in jail forever."..'

F*ckin' British...!? Are you kidding me?!

Meanwhile, in Italy...

Italy seizes huge drugs haul intended for Isil fighters in Libya .

'Italian authorities seized a huge quantity of drugs that were allegedly destined for Islamic
State fighters in Libya, who use them to dull pain and suppress fatigue.

The shipment, which was intercepted in Genoa, consisted of 37 million tablets of Tramadol,
a pain-killer reportedly used by ISIL terrorists to increase their battlefield resilience.

Italian police believe that ISIL leaders planned to sell the packets of pain-killers to their foot
soldiers in Libya for the equivalent of two euros each, which would have netted them 74 million

The drugs would also have been sold to people in the street in Libya and Egypt, where
dependence on Tramadol has become a serious social problem. The drugs were found in
three containers that were in transit through Genoa.
The packets of pills were concealed amid bottles of shampoo and other hygiene products.

The containers had come from India and were destined for the ports of Misurata and Tobruk
in Libya. Italian police and customs officials worked with agents from the Drug Enforcement
Administration from the US.

“Tramadol is a synthetic opioid, normally used for pain relief, that is also used as a narcotic,
especially in the Middle East,” Italian border police said in a statement.

“The sale of the seized drugs would have earned around 75 million euros, given that each
packet would have been sold for around two euros on the black market in North Africa and
the Middle East,” the police said.
“The profits would have gone towards funding Islamic terrorism.”...'

Post-truth politics... Art of the lie.

'Politicians have always lied. Does it matter if they leave the truth behind entirely?

Consider how far Donald Trump is estranged from fact. He inhabits a fantastical realm where
Barack Obama’s birth certificate was faked, the president founded Islamic State (IS), the Clintons
are killers and the father of a rival was with Lee Harvey Oswald before he shot John F. Kennedy. 

Mr Trump is the leading exponent of “post-truth” politics—a reliance on assertions that “feel true”
but have no basis in fact. His brazenness is not punished, but taken as evidence of his willingness
to stand up to elite power.
And he is not alone.

Members of Poland’s government assert that a previous president, who died in a plane crash,
was assassinated by Russia. Turkish politicians claim the perpetrators of the recent bungled coup
were acting on orders issued by the CIA.

The successful campaign for Britain to leave the European Union warned of the hordes of immigrants
that would result from Turkey’s imminent accession to the union.

If, like this newspaper, you believe that politics should be based on evidence, this is worrying.
Strong democracies can draw on inbuilt defences against post-truth. Authoritarian countries are more

That politicians sometimes peddle lies is not news: think of Ronald Reagan’s fib that his administration
had not traded weapons with Iran in order to secure the release of hostages and to fund the efforts of
rebels in Nicaragua.
Dictators and democrats seeking to deflect blame for their own incompetence have always manipulated
the truth; sore losers have always accused the other lot of lying.

But post-truth politics is more than just an invention of whingeing elites who have been outflanked.
The term picks out the heart of what is new: that truth is not falsified, or contested, but of secondary
importance. Once, the purpose of political lying was to create a false view of the world.

The lies of men like Mr Trump do not work like that.
They are not intended to convince the elites, whom their target voters neither trust nor like, but to reinforce
The Economist:

Forgive them Father... because they're middle-class, smug, establishment-biased hacks and they know
what they do. Hillary only did wrong because she was caught- The Establishment's Credo.

If it was that the majority of the people that voted for Trump were red-necked, conspiracy-craving, racist,
pillow-case-wearing dullards, then...
A: Why is it that only now, you deem them negative?
B: Why have the mainstream ever considered approaching this group of people to offer your alternative view?
C: Why is the same mainstream media's readership in the tank and failing with it's agreed narrative?

Assuming this report is actually true, here's an example of the Blue Pill media in action.

If the anomaly of this report is the suggestion that the culprit in this story has actually acquired
a human head to brandish after an alleged killing of a female in a house and a stabbing of a male
employee of the Harvest Market Thriftway store, then where did he get it from?

Information around the incident is still vague, but one would assume that the severed head would
belong to the at-home victim and that, would imply a ritualistic death. In today's environment, that
would smack of the same style of execution reported about in countries that hold a certain type of

Deputies: Stabbing suspect was carrying ‘human head’

'Estacada stabbing connected to death investigation in Colton, deputies said.

ESTACADA, Ore. (KOIN) — A man who allegedly stabbed a person inside an Estacada grocery
store Sunday is believed to be connected to the death of a woman in Colton, according to Clackamas
County Sheriff’s Office.

A 911 caller told deputies the man walked into Harvest Market Thriftway on S Broadway around 2:15 p.m.
He was reportedly “covered in blood” and holding “a knife and what looked like a human head.”

The man stabbed a store employee who was flown to Emanuel Legacy Medical Center with critical injuries.
Other workers reportedly held the suspect down until authorities arrived and took him into custody.

“We saw panicking people rushing for their vehicles, vehicles trying to get out all at one time,” witness
Kristin Courtain told KOIN 6 News.

The suspect’s car was still running with its windshield wipers on long after his arrest.

Just 15 minutes after the attack, another person called 911 to report finding a woman who appeared to be
dead inside a home on the 25000 block of Elwood Drive in Colton. Multiple agencies responded and found
a woman dead on the scene.
Deputies say both incidents are connected and there is no threat to the public...'

Here is an interesting video: Proof CNN Is a Military Psyop.

In 1983 50% of media was owned by 50 companies, but in 2011 that number rose to the media being owned by only 6 companies, which shows how our media has been infiltrated by the "shadow government".

It appears Operation Mockingbird has been very successful since it's beginning in the 1950s. 

Quote:Operation Mockingbird was allegedly a large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that, beginning in the early 1950s, attempted to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes. It funded student and cultural organizations and magazines as front organizations.

According to writer Deborah Davis, Mockingbird recruited leading American journalists into a propaganda network and oversaw the operations of front groups. CIA support of front groups was exposed after a 1967 Ramparts magazine article reported that the National Student Association received funding from the CIA. In the 1970s Congressional investigations and reports also revealed Agency connections with journalists and civic groups. None of these reports, however, mentions an Operation Mockingbird controlling or supporting these activities.

Project Mockingbird is mentioned in the CIA Family Jewels report, compiled in the mid-70s. According to the declassified version of the report released in 2007, Project Mockingbird involved wire-tapping of two American journalists for several months in the early 1960s.
Isn't it interesting that Anderson Cooper spent two summers as an intern with the CIA before becoming a reporter for CNN?

Anderson Cooper

What I've posted so far should give anyone out there reason to doubt what CNN has to say, or any MSM for that matter.

Do your own research to learn the truth.
There are those who see the regular Reporters that swarm around the White House as the bastions of
honourable information and hold no bias towards any particular party. Then there some who perceive
the established news outlets as mere milling seagulls that have chose a particular narrative and follow
any tid-bit whether it's valid or not.

Whichever colour of pill one decides to swallow, I think both sides can agree the writer of this below
would fall under the heading 'Shower of Sh*t' anyway.

I found it as a 'Top Story' when I googled 'latest news' and seeing the headline and not checking the
source, I clicked on it to read about the further escapade that's supposedly unfolding in the environs
of Washington D.C.

Chaos on Capitol Hill as Republicans reel from latest Trump controversy.

'Another day, another bombshell from the president – and a frenzy on the Hill, where Republicans have
become used to a barrage of questions from reporters...'
The Guardian:

Surely, the juicy truth was awaiting just down the page somewhere and I began to read something that
wasn't so much a news report, but a story written in a manner that forced a mediocre of false excitement
because in reality, nothing happened.

The tale tells of Congressmen and Senators moving from one area of Capitol Hill to another...
It implies a scandal that is never defined with facts and rolls in a mire of insinuation prose and action
-failing suggestion.
And these are the people entrusted with relating true information.

The end of the penned poppycock is this and for those with a weak heart, beware.

'...The contingent of reporters pressing phones and recorders in front of lawmakers has swelled
with each controversy, leaving the Senate staff charged with keeping lanes to the elevators clear
completely exasperated.

On Wednesday, the Senate press gallery sent an email on “Senate Hallway congestion” urging
reporters to be “mindful of space constraints and safety concerns”.

The letter warned reporters that “Senate officials may act to correct overcrowding situations”,
adding: “Collectively, the press following the Senators have become large and aggressive ...
we are concerned someone may get hurt.”...'

Ahahahaaaa... I checked the image that you kindly offered with Snopes and sadly...
their poor freakin' attempt to declaw the intention of The Wall Street Journal fails terribly in
my opinion.

Below is from Snopes:

An image showing two editions of the same day's Wall Street Journal with opposing headlines
about Donald Trump's immigration stance is real.

That'll do me Snopes, thanks very much. Next please!

The Wall Street Journal did not publish different headlines in different markets in order to sway
voters away from Trump.

Hmmm. You're saying that it's false that they did not -ergo TRUE that The Wall Street Journal DID
publish different headlines in different markets in order to sway. Okey-dokey... it's bears out your
true claim!

On 1 September 2016, a photograph purportedly showing two editions of The Wall Street Journal with
markedly different front page headlines regarding Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s
stance on immigration was circulated on social media:

[Image: attachment.php?aid=1820]

This image was passed around on the Internet accompanied by the claim that the Wall Street Journal
had deliberately published one headline, “Trump Softens His Tone,” in a pro-Trump market area in an
attempt to sway readers away from the the GOP nominee, and the other headline,
“Trump Talks Tough on Wall,” in a non-Trump market area to bolster support for Democratic presidential
nominee Hillary Clinton.

However, these opposing headline editions were not distributed to different political or geographic
markets, nor were they intended to influence voters.

This picture shows two editions of the Wall Street Journal published at different times of the day.
The paper on the left came off the press early in the day, while the paper on the right was produced late
 in the day. Print newspapers sometimes undergo revisions throughout their daily runs and typically employ
marks to distinguish the various editions — in this case the differing WSJ editions are distinguishable by
the number of stars displayed in the masthead:

[Image: attachment.php?aid=1821]

Colleen Schwartz, the Vice President of Communications at The Wall Street Journal,  confirmed that these
editions were printed at different times, not in different markets. The edition on the left was published after
Trump met with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto early in the day (and referenced the seemingly
cooperative tone of their discussion), and the edition on the right was published after Trump delivered a
speech on immigration later in the day
(and referenced Trump’s reasserting his stance that he would force Mexico to pay for the building of a
wall along the U.S.-Mexico border):

Yes, the images represent two different editions, published at different times, and the headlines represent
the news at the time of publication — before and after his speech.

Bullshit. Sure, it's a mature explanation that a piece was written because of information known at that
time of the day and yeah, it's possible that after secondary information arrived later in that day, an alternate
opinion could be preferred.

But The Wall Street Journal PRINTED the first paper and I know the logistics involved from a Journalist
accepting a certain narrative, arranging the article, having it sub-edited for fine-tuning, processed through
the system to be on an actual printing plate and then printed. The freshly-created newspaper is then taken
from it's printed location and delivered.

And all of that costs money! Money that isn't frittered away in Journalists musings and selective views.
A newspaper needs to show a steady trustworthy manner of delivering information and no Editor worth
their salt would allow such a shoddy costly flip-flop action without explaining it to the reader.

Many people forget that this isn't a single newspaper, thousands are printed off and the time involved
just isn't available from the moment a story evolves up to when a newspaper is purchased by a customer.
This isn't something that can be casually manipulated during one day.
A website page...? easy, but a newspaper is real and you can't delete it!

Journalists are not the only people involved in making a newspaper regardless of what Clark Kent and Lois
Lane want you to think. The deliberation of typing an article in an office is a long way from being an actual
real physical object and even if we discount the time it takes to produce a single story -never mind all the other
articles, adverts, and interior parts that all fluid due to many variables, the excuse that Colleen Schwartz offers
holds no water.

It's bullshit because of what the alternative would prove and this whole piece shows where Snopes' loyalties

Watch CNN Host Blow It!
Quote:CNN and good decisions do not mix. Much like leftists and good cholesterol. Their accuracy and decision making is especially sub par when it comes to all things Trump and Russia. See Donald Trump Body Slams BuzzFeed, CNN for Fake Russian ‘Report’… and BUSTED! Georgia Court Rules CNN Guilty of Publishing Fake News. Given this track record, not everyone is taking CNN’s word for it when claiming to have solid sources within the Trump-Russia fiasco. One such objector is former U.S. Navy SEAL, Carl Higbie. During a panel discussion, Higbie questioned the credibility of CNN’s sources.

Mistake. Big mistake…

Quote:Higbie: You’re basing all these allegations off of one or maybe two sources. Come out and name those people…
Host: 1, we protect our sources. 2, it’s not just CNN. It’s Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, ABC, NBC.
Higbie: Who are the sources? Because they’re hiding behind this anonymity.
These were the fated few lines that struck a million CNN nerves. Rage of the highest order was soon to follow…

Interesting debate tactics this gal has in her tool belt. She’s mastered wailing like a hippopotamus in labor. Actual discussion, on the other hand? Not so much.

Regardless of whether or not you support Trump, CNN’s professionalism department is found wanting. Firstly, CNN has been wrong before about Trump and Russia. Recently, too. Slapping your hands together in seal-like fashion and RUDELY YELLING THINGS doth not a credible argument make. Notice how they all doggy pile onto this guy for questioning where they got their information…

Remember when CNN lied about the Russia report on Trump? Remember when they completely falsified a story about Trump committing voter fraud? I ‘member. CNN doesn’t get to simply pull unverified sources from their puckered anal cavities. They have misled their audience on numerous occasions. Yet they expect everyone to take their word for it this time because “ANONYMOUS COMPLETELY UNVERIFIED SOURCES SAID THIS!” Aaaand Higbie is the unreasonable one for asking to see proof.
