Back in July of 2013, WND published a story in which they reported a new law allowed Barack Obama to 'take over' the media. Granting the federal government massive new powers to saturate the American people with domestic propaganda at US taxpayer expense, if you're one of those people who think that WND story or this ANP story might be 'Russian propaganda', we always suggest you check at least 3 very different sources to confirm your information.
On May 18th of 2012, Buzzfeed reported: "Congressmen Seek To Lift Propaganda Ban" - Propaganda that was supposed to target foreigners could now be aimed at Americans, reversing a longstanding policy. “Disconcerting and dangerous,” says Shank.
“I just don’t want to see something this significant – whatever the pros and cons – go through without anyone noticing,” says one source on the Hill, who is disturbed by the law. According to this source, the law would allow “U.S. propaganda intended to influence foreign audiences to be used on the domestic population.”
The new law would give sweeping powers to the government to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”
For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government’s mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened?
The U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm has begun the "unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption," John Hudson of Foreign Policy reported on Sunday.
The content arrives with the enactment of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R- Texas) and Rep. Adam Smith (D- Wash.), which was inserted into the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The reform effectively nullifies the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which was amended in 1985 specifically to prohibit U.S. organizations from using information "to influence public opinion in the United States."
As we see and hear in the first video below, an excellent new video going viral we suggest everybody watch, fake news has already caused massive chaos and social unrest across America and has been pushed by the mainstream media. The mainstream media has very real blood on their hands. Warning us of the 'dark forces within', just as Alex Jones warns us in the 2nd and final video below, we're getting more and more evidence every day those 'dark forces' are still attempting to extinguish the 1st Amendment in America.
The new story from Breitbart is called "8 Times Hillary Clinton Pushed Fake News" and while the 8 examples seen below outline some of what we know of, what still lurks behind closed Clinton and MSM doors? Vince Foster? What more?
1. "Landing Under Sniper Fire” 2. Her grandmother was an immigrant 3. A recruiter shut down her attempt to join the Marines because she was a woman 4.The Benghazi attack was a protest against a YouTube video 5. She never sent or received classified email on her homebrew email server 6. Russia was behind Wikileaks' release of John Podesta's emails 7. She's a sweet grandma 8. A 'Stranger' just happened to find her in public
As we read in Roberts story, the masses of American people have been brainwashed, and for many, many years. Shall they be irredeemably so? If so, all bets are off for the future of humanity. To close from Paul Craig Roberts.:
The CIA’s success in controlling public perception of what our Founding Fathers would have regarded as suspicious events involving the government enables those in power positions within government to orchestrate events that serve hidden agendas. The events of September 11 created the new paradigm of endless war in behalf of a Washington-dominated world. The CIA’s success in controlling public perceptions has made it impossible to investigate elite political crimes. Consequently, it is now possible for treason to be official US government policy.
Is the CIA correct that the American people are forever brainwashed, subject only to the explanations given by their overlords?
If so, all Americans are slated to be the most oppressed people in history.
